Preet Anand, founder of BlueLight, said the need for the app came after he realized the Blue Light emergency phone system poles that litter campuses around the country werent enough to keep students feeling safe, as most incidents occur off campus. You tap your phones screen a few times dont want to call the police, you can send your girlfriend or your roommate a message letting them know where you are. After installing the free app and selecting three emergency contacts, users input the name of their university, allowing the app to call the local police department whenever the user is in danger. Tapping campus safety in the app menu connects users to the police and ting alert contacts sends a preset message to mation. After brainstorming ideas and asking his female friends about convenient ways to stay safe, Anand settled on the idea of creating an app for smartphones. He said although many people might leave their wallets or keys at home, most are attached to their smartphones at all times.BlueLight app offers UF students safety at nightLocals annoyed about link between drug molly, EDM ABOUT 60 UF GRADS WERE ACCEPTED.

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgIn the past, the 20 acres of property at 5805 NW 37th St. has been synonymous with the controversy associated with Terry Jones and the Dove World Outreach Center. Thursday, however, a new chapter began for the land as the Spirit of Faith Kenneth Claytor, senior pastor of Spirit of Faith, said he hopes to turn what was considered a negative area into something positive. At one time, this property that we sit in today was used as a place that divided the city, he said. Controversial things were taking place here, and there was a level of paranoia and fear. However, I feel that our God-given assignment is to take that which was a negative and now make it something thats positive for our city. Claytor said even though he originally didnt plan to purchase the property, he felt that God had called him to use the area to promote the churchs platform and help We want to turn something that was confusion into peace, and turn something that was considered by some hateful into love, he said. In July, Spirit of Faith bought the property for about $1.2 million. Renovations to the building are only Future plans for the property include the addition of another ministry facility, an orphanage and education centers. Gainesville Chief of Police Tony Jones called the opening a joyous occasion. He said the Gainesville police force My relationships with this building in the past has not been pleasant because what went on on these particular grounds not only impacted Gainesville and the State of Florida but this entire world, Jones said. Today I see hope, and the Gainesville Police Department stands with you for anything you need. Mayor Ed Braddy attended the opening and participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony. He was joined by City Commissioner Randy Wells, City Commissioner Yvonne Hinson-Rawls and City Commissioner Lauren Poe at the opening. Braddy, who once lived in a house neighboring the property, said the new occupants mission to unite diverse groups of people should bring both comfort and relief to residents. As diverse as we are, we all have this yearning for meaning and an innate desire for purpose, he said. More urgently than ever, we need the great institutions of faith to provide the leadership and provide the venue to heal spiritual wounds.

SYDNEY DIXONAlligator Contributing WriterEven though its not gameday, students will still be tailgating on campus. UF RecSports is hosting its annual cornhole tournament at 5 p.m. today at the Broward Outdoor Recreational Complex. Matt Thalhamer, event coordinator of the tournament and program assistant for competitive sports, said the game is popular now that it is tailgating season. Thalhamer said there will be a stereo playing with country music to add to the tailgate theme. The tournament is a way to introduce students to the sport and become aware for tailgates this Fall, Thalhamer said. Forty-eight students are expected to attend. The event turnout is about on par with last year, he said. The single-elimination style tournament consists of two-person teams with a total of 24 teams. The winning team of the cornhole tournament will be given intramural champion T-shirts. Thalhamer said this year is different from previous years because it will be held outdoors. David King, a 20-year-old UF mechanical engineering junior, said hes hoping that his opponent will not like the heat and use it to his own advantage. King participated in last years cornhole tournament and said hes excited to return.

The board had $20 million total to allocate between the schools in the state university system. The amount of funding each school received was determined based on three metrics: cost per degree, average salaries of graduates and percentage of graduates who are employed or continuing their education. UFs numbers were $25,028, $32,176 and 63 percent, respectively, according to a state document. We worked with the Legislature to deliver a win for students and Florida universities, Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release. Our goal for supporting students was and pursue their dreams after school. Thats why these millions of dollars are based on our institutions effectiveness in preparing our students for the future. Six schools got more funding than UF. The University of Central Florida and University of South Florida got the most, at $2.6 million each. New College of Florida had the lowest amount $435,000. Scott said in the release administrators should use the money to enhance their universities so they can attract talent and create educational environments for students. In the future, the board will use more metrics that center around student success for evaluation.Board of Governors giving UF $1.7 million in fundingADMINISTRATION We worked with the Legislature to deliver a win for students and Florida universities.Rick Scott governor


4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 We wanted to create the quickest way for students to get help when they needed it, he said. Christina Bonarrigo, UF Student Body President and 22-year-old graduate business management student, started the initiative for a UF BlueLight app but was unaware that one was available. She said she is selecting from three prospects for a UF-centric app. Daniel Winslow, a 19-year-old UF pre-pharmacy sophomore, said hes always felt safe on campus, even when hes walking home from classes at night. Winslow said although the Blue Light poles scattered around campus are helpful to fearful students, they arent spaced well enough to truly keep a person safe. A lot of things could happen between the three or four poles I see around, he said. This app could be a good replacement. Sravga Kidambi, a 17-year-old UF telecommunication freshman, said because the app is free theres no reason not to download it. I would think that someone would just call 911 if theyre in danger, she said. But I guess the app is a cooler way to do it.The app is free, can call policeDavid Efraim, a 22-year-old UF accounting graduate student and DJ, said drug incidents at EDM festivals can reinforce the stereotype linking the genre to molly. He said he watched a 16-year-old girl overdose at Ultra Music Festival in Miami in 2009. It looks bad on me, he said. Drugs and music have been related since before Woodstock. The only difference now is that its a much larger scale, and its kids doing it. But Doering said molly isnt new and is not exclusive to any one subculture. He said the drug doesnt generally cause death. When it does, it raises the question of whether users were even taking molly at all. Doering said that while doing work as a consultant for a police case in Orpen when people take drugs that are not what they think they are. The guy took what turned out to be contaminated MDMA, Doering said, adding that it contained a byproduct causing the mans body temperature to rise to 107 degrees. Doering said friends placed the man in a bathtub and doused him with ice and water, but his body was still 105 degrees two hours after his death. It is no secret that drugs are seen as a major part of EDM culture, Kan said, but this isnt always the case for people who are truly fans of the music. You dont need to take some pill to make you feel good, he said. When youre listening to the music, you already feel good.Kan Li / Alligator StaffCanadian electronic music duo Zeds Dead performs Sept. 1 at Forum.

But change isnt always a good thing, some Gainesville residents say. Humble Alachua County eateries, such as Pearl Country Store and Barbecue in Micanopy, like to stay true to their culinary roots. Manager Damon Scott said he will never leave his mini Cracker Barrel ways, but has added health-conscious options like vegan burgers. Rachel Graf, a 19-year-old UF health science and pre-physical therapy sophomore, has contradicting opinions on modernization of classic businesses. Im kind of skewed because I love Restaurant Impossible on the Food Network, she said. It shows that on the business side of things, its smart to update for a wider variety and customer pool. But, its important to make the food the same, just change the presentation. Even franchises arent into the updating game. Matt Aschenbrener, manager of the Maki-style sushi hangout How Do You Roll? said companies have to maintain their ground. We cant try to be Sushi Chao or anybody else, he said. Patticakes, a family-owned coffee shop in Gainesville, touts small business. I strongly support it, said the 20-year-old UF engineering junior. They go out of their way to be unique, whether by using local ingredients or just trying new things, because the owners probably didnt go to business school, and thats OK. Danny Zeenberg, bar manager and assistant general manager of The Swamp, said modifying the menu isnt necessary to keep customers returning. The trendy restaurants will get the initial push by customers because they are new. But, then newer places will spring up and automatically be the best, he said. Now, you dont have a competitive edge anymore. Its best to just stay classically you.Locals dish on modernization of classic diner restaurants KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Writerkvarn@alligator.orgGainesville Police arrested a local man Wednesday after he repeatedly masturbated in two restaurants. 27, on charges of stalking, loitering and prowling, exposure of sexual organs and For the last few months, a Planet Smoothie employee had been reporting to police that Simmons went into the business located at 1620 W.

James Dixon of Greater Faith Baptist Fellowship downtown travels to the Alachua County Jail. He enters a classroom where he talks with inmates, helping them prepare to re-enter everyday life and the job market after theyre released. But a major topic of discussion that came up at a meeting about Dixons Bridges to more work for inmates eligible for work release programs, Gainesville resident Herb Kieklak wrote in a recent email to city commissioners. Walter Cason, executive director of the Brave Overt Leaders of Distinction program for former inmates, agreed reentry programs need help expanding. We need more support, Cason said. This is ... for young men to reclaim their place in society. During the summer, Dixon expanded his Bridges to Prosperity re-entry program, setting, from a downtown meeting place into the county jail. The expansion was at the request of Kristen Benedini, director of an inmate transition program that existed at the jail prior to Dixons program. She asked Dixon to step in and implement Bridges to Prosperity at the jail because it would complement hers, which helps inmates develop resumes, among other services. Because of support inmates receive from these programs, Dixon said, they have the opportunity to become functioning members of society upon release.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Nathalie Dortonne / AlligatorUp in the AirUF classics senior Carson Firth, 20, juggles in the Reitz Union breezeway Thursday afternoon. RESEARCH WAS BASED ON SURVEYS FROM THE 1950s, 1960s AND 1970s. LAUREN ADHAVAlligator Contributing WriterA recent study suggests that LSD might actually be good for you what a trip. Researchers Pl-rjan Johansen and Teri Krebs from Norways University of Science and Technology wrote lifetime use of any psychedelics ... or past year use of LSD and increased rate of any of the mental health outcomes. In fact, they wrote, it found psychedelic use was associated with a lower rate of mental health problems, according to the science journal PLOS One. Johansens and Krebs conclusions about LSD and alcoholism were based on archived surveys from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Fifty-nine percent of patients who had been given a dose of LSD had either stopped drinking completely or were drinking less, according to This study starkly contrasts the popular opinion that LSD, as well as other hallucinogenic drugs, can cause long-term mental health issues. The LSD that was being abused in the 60s and the s was a much different drug in terms of dosage than what is being used now, said Dr. Bruce Goldberger, professor and director of UF Health Forensic Medicine. The dosage was probably two to four times higher than what it is today, he said. The study also suggested that the drug could be used to treat alcohol addiction, and the researchers concluded that it is effective against alcoholism. I would be reluctant to use a drug like LSD to treat alcoholism, Goldberger said. Youre treating one drug with a high potential for abuse with another drug with a high potential of abuse. Even if it did become an accepted form of treatment, it would be impossible to regulate, he said. Gabriela Asuaje, a 20-year-old UF advertising senior, said she would never consider taking the drug even if it I actually had a friend from high school that was in rehab and got addicted to LSD, so I dont really consider that it would be a means to treat people, she said. I think there are other ways.LSD might be good for mental health, study saysLIFESTYLE CHERI BAILEYAlligator Contributing WriterTwo short public service announcements were released Wednesday encouraging students to intervene during an alcohol-related sexual assault attempt. Maureen Miller, director of GatorWell Health Promotions, said the videos were created by Gainesville Police, GatorWell, University Police, the AlaCollege, the Alachua County Victim Services & Rape Crisis Center and the Student Health Care Center. The two videos were in the works for more than a year and are now circulating via social media. The take-home message from the videos is to have students feel like they can do something if they see sexual assault, Miller said. If you just look at a situation and something just doesnt look right, you can step in and help out a fellow person, she said. Lynne Benck, captain of the investigations bureau, said the beginning of every semester, especially Fall, is when there is an increase in the number of reported sexual assaults. In the last two weeks we have probably had three or four open cases that are related to alcohol-facilitated sexual assault, she said. Andrea Pedata, a UF 21-year-old criminology and anthropology junior said, shes been in that situation before. I wouldve rather had someone step in for me and act like my best friend and take me somewhere, she said. Benck said one night should not end up changing someones life. You guys are one Student Body, so watch out for each other and try to prevent sexual assault by just being aware of your surroundings, she said.PSAs warn of alcohol-related assaults If you just look at a situation and something just doesnt look right, you can step in and help out a fellow person.Maureen Millerdirector of Gatorwell

He also described his relations with President Barack Obama as marked by growing trust. Of course, some people dont appreciate being lectured on democracy by the auWhether you agree or disagree with what Putin wrote, it was a bold move to publish the editorial in an American newspaper. It reinforced his point about the need for civilized discourse and his willingness to strengthen Russias relationship with the U.S. For that, were giving Putin a well-acceptthat-olive-branch LAUREL. Next, were throwing a seriously-just-stop DART to noted bigot and former Gainesville resident, the Rev. Terry Jones. Jones was arrested in Polk County after police found him riding a car with a smoker full of 2,998 kerosene-soaked Qurans attached to the back. His organization, Dove World Outreach Center, had planned to burn the books in a park.

Todays question: Does EDM unfairly get a bad rep? US should intervene in Syrian civil warIn his speech on Tuesday, President Barack Obama argued that the United States is not the global police force. However, the situation in Syria remains tumultuous, and the White House seems to believe that the only imperative is securing chemical weapons despite earlier demands for Bashar al-Assads resignation. From a geopolitical perspective, it is clear that intervention in Syria is not only necessary but also inevitable. The Syria we know today was sculpted by a callous French architect after World War I. Unfortunately, the French failed to account for the complexity of the Middle Easts rich history and diversity. Sunni, Shiite and Alawite Muslims and Christian Arabs were housed together with a religious and ethniMore than 90 years later, the unstable lines drawn by the French are witnessing a civil war where, according to, the ruling Alawite Assad family faces the Sunni Free Syrian Army, and both factions are brutally sinister. lithic there is a plethora of sectarian alliances on the ground in Syria. For example, last month an Al-Jazeera report debacking the Assad government. Hezbollah which, according to the U.S State Desince 1997 is bolstered by a predominantly Shiite Iran. On the other hand, an NBC report published this week warns of the radical elements of the Free Syrian With such a complex and hostile environment, its obvious why Obama and Washington policymakers are hesitant about intervention in have used words like limited and surgical when referring to intervention in the fractured Levant. If the U.S. does not intervene, there will be severe consequences in terms of human rights. an often-neglected horror of the civil war is the use of mass rape. The number of refugees illustrates just how dire the situation has become. The United Nations reported that nearly 2 million This creates regional instability as well, as Syrians seek a new home in neighboring countries such as Turkey and Iraq. So, if there are both idealist and realist reasons for intervening in Syria, and a limited strike will not sufBecause there is no moral authority on the ground in Syria, the U.S. must intervene as it did when there was Ideally, Syria should be Balkanized, therefore reshaping the arbitrary political liens that the French created.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Imagine a program that promised the op portunity to change your life: the opportunity to work side by side with some of Gainesvilles most successful business leaders in creating a mock company. Imagine after applying to more places than you can count, going on injob much less a living wage that someone offered you the chance to change your career path. Then, imagine the bad news: that for no logical or rational reason, 25 percent of you would be randomly and summarily rejected. The StartUp Quest program promised that participants would work in small groups with a mentor, and over the course of 10 weeks the participants would learn what it takes to start a company from scratch. The core of the company is built around an innovative technology borTechnology and Licensing, a program partner. The skills, experience and contacts participants were supposed to learn in starting this simulated company were supposed to be substantial. It was to be an invaluable asset in helping the participants to get a job or even start their own company. For someone like me, whos been looking for a better career opportunity for months now, the program sounded perfect. It sounded like the answer to my prayers. Funded by a grant from the Department of Labor to study how effective the program is at returning workers to the workforce, it was determined that not everyone accepted would actually be able to actively engage in the program. Because the program was funded by a study, it needed a control group to compare to the effects of the program on the program participants. As a result, we were told that one in every four of us would be part of this inactive control group. The members of this control group would be participants without actually being able to participate. The chance to attend the educational sessions and work one-on-one with Gainesvilles best and brightest minds wouldnt be available to that 25 percent. Not only would we not be able to participate, but because time around, we would not be eligible to participate in the future either. The lack of alternatives was even more frustrating. If anyone dropped from the program, his or her slot would remain It seems wrong. It seems unethical and immoral. Although the program may not be exactly fraudulent, and although those who actually the promises of what this program would do for me, I cant feel help but feel that those promises were empty. Im sure they wouldnt say that their actions were fraudulent, but for me and many others in Gainesville, it sure felt like it. Steven Craig is a UF alumnus.Like most Americans, I am able to vividly recall the events that took place 12 years ago. It was my last year of high school, and a friend and I decided to leave study hall to hang out in the library. As we waltzed in, laughing and joking, I remember being hushed, and our attention shifted to the TV. I was just 17 years old there was no way to comprehend the magnitude of devastation that tore through our nation that morning. I dont need to explain the wave of emotions that followed. Sixteen months later, I was standing on the famous yellow footprints of the Marine Corps Recruit Training Depot Parris Island. Two years after entering recruit training, I was deployed to Fallujah, Iraq, one of the most volatile battlegrounds of the Iraq war up to that point. By now, most readers are probably asking, What is the point of this editorial? I digress. Firehouse Subs boasts its motto as being Founded by Firemen. It prides itself on asking customers to donate their change on purchases, and is the second year I am aware of that this company has forgotten about the attacks of Sept. 11. Last year on Sept. 11, I wandered into Firehouse Subs and realized there day. I spoke with the manager, and although he was sympathetic, he said he had no control over what gets displayed. That evening I emailed the company to express my disappointment, and still a year later Ive yet to receive a reply. It wasnt until a year later that military began to witness their casualties. The United States of America was forever changed by the events that took place on that fatal day, but America made a promise to Never Forget to always remember that terror is real, and were not invincible. We must also remember the brave individuals who, in a moments notice, Michael Filipelli is a UF engineering senior and former sergeant in the Marine Corps.No 9/11 recognition: Is Firehouse Subs a scam?Guest columnMichael FilipelliSpeaking Out Open call to ACCENT: Bring Noam ChomskyThanks to its long connection to famed linguist and author Noam Chomsky, a renowned speaker to worldwide audiences, the Civic Media Center was able to give UFs ACCENT Speakers Bureau a chance to present professor Chomsky on the UF campus this Fall. In 2003, with ACCENT co-sponsorship, Chomsky spoke at the OConnell Center to 6,000 people. We hoped a similar event could be scheduled this year on Oct. 16. In June, ACCENT chair Daniel Landesberg was tunity and initially seemed interested, but as the months ized. ACCENT stated that since they believed only 1,000 students would attend, the event should be in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and on a different date, as Oct. 16 was not available there. An information table was set up for two hours on the Plaza of Americas on Aug. 28 with a simple 2-by-3 sign that read: Chomsky is Coming because he is. Exactly where hell be speaking is the question. About 56 people left messages supporting Chomskys appearance, and a photo and email were sent to ACCENT demonstrating student interest. Instead, a week later, ACCENT sent an email saying they would not be bringing Chomsky this year because our tabling had given advance publicity before the contract was signed. This was six weeks before this major event, and more than 10 weeks since they We think, as in 2003, there is a lot of interest in Chomsky, and it would be a shame to let the chance for a large audience to see him slip away. We encourage ACCENT to change its decision and venue at which to speak.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 Nicole Gomez / AlligatorHealth science sophomore Lindsey Meeks, 19, demonstrates a side plank using a kettlebell at the Southwest Recreation Center on Thursday. Using kettlebells has become a workout trend. CROSSFIT POPULARIZED IT. CHIP LOWEAlligator Contributing WriterAs high-intensity workout programs are catching on nationwide, so are kettlebells, and Gainesville has welcomed them with swinging arms. Everyone comes in the gym asking if we have them, said Sean Walsh, manager at Baileys Powerhouse Gym on West University Avenue. Theyre Walsh attributes the local popularity of the originally cast-iron weighted balls from 18th century Russia to the popularity of programs like CrossFit, which incorporate the equipment into workouts. Some of the people coming in asking for the kettlebell dont even know what it is, he said. Joslyn Ahlgren, a lecturer in the UF Applied Physiology & Kinesiology department, said the growing popularity of method, those pieces of equipment become more commonplace. Once you get it in the right hands, somebody will really get it going, she said. Adam Huff, a personal trainer in Newberry, said he thinks kettlebells are gaining traction because its a welcome variation. Its something new and out of the ordinary, he said. Something different than just dumbbells. But Ahlgren said kettlebells are rapidly becoming everyday items. It used to be you would never see something like the kettlebell just hanging out on a shelf at the gym, Ahlgren said. Now, they are just as common as a dumbbell. Kettlebell trend swings into Gainesville gyms JEANNA ARROYOAlligator Contributing WriterThe Doris Bardon Community Cultural Center is looking for a new place to call home. The center, currently located at 716 N. Main St., has offered art classes and cultural events for the past two years, but the current location is not ideal, said Mallory OConnor, a board member of the Arts Association of Alachua County. She said it doesnt offer enough parking for the artists or visitors hoping to attend events or classes. OConnor said the centers current lease expires Oct. 6, and she said board members are looking for a low-cost downtown facility, ideally before the lease is up. OConnor wrote in an email to City Commissioner Lauren Poe that similar not-forable to rent city or county spaces for as little as a $1 per year. In the email, OConnor wrote that she and Poe had discussed a possible long-term location in the South Main Street area as a part of a In the meantime, Norma Homan, the orgaprov theater group Mad About the Doris have relocated temporarily. We will use different venues for a short time, Homan said.

Although the Gators had the two top individual performers in Cullowhee, N.C., the low times were not the key takeaway from the meet, according to coach Paul Spangler.

Each time was fast enough to secure individual victories. The men may also have an emerging force in junior Eddie Garcia. ished fourth with a time of 15:14.67, improving his time from a year ago by about 35 seconds. Eddie really stuck out in that race, Spangler said. I thought he had a breakthrough performance. Hes looked really good at practice this year. He had a great summer training and certainly things are paying off for him. As you get older as a distance runner, you see a lot more consistency with their performances. Eddies an extremely hard worker. I think he had a better summer training this summer than hes had in the past. Hes progressing very well and hes going to have a great year. The mens team looks to be one of the stronger units the Gators have had in years. The last time Floridas men won a conference title was in 1987. In recent years, the men have played won an SEC title three of the last four seasons. This year, the men hope to buck the the men to success are Parrish, Hines and junior Jimmy Clark. Since (the WCU Invitational), JL Hines has looked really good in practice, Spangler said. Mark Parrish, Jimmy Clark ... Im very pleased with what Ive seen in practice. Saturdays event will give Florida the opportunity to have a test run for the SEC Champuionships, which will be held at the Mark Bostwick Golf Course on Nov. 1. With it being a preview for the SEC championships, the SEC will be well represented with LSU, South Carolina, Auburn and Tennessee also attending, Spangler said. The Mountain Dew Invitational will also feature the typical races held at SECs and the much heralded Wisconsin adidas Invitational a 6K for the women and an 8K for the men. With the mens race, were going 8K as normal, Spangler said. For the womens race, were going to break from what weve done in the past, which is running 5K, and run a 6K. 6K is what were going to race at Wisconsin and what were going to race at the SEC championships, so itll be a great opportunity for our younger athletes to have that experience of a 6K before we get into the championship meets later this season.

Its not like the Gators lost a Kelly Murphy-type player who would be a point scorer every set of every match. Weston played in 85 sets in her four years at UF. Six of the 11 returning Gators played more sets just last year than Weston did in her entire career. However, sophomore Simone Antwi said that the situational practices that Weston helped with last year and that Backlund and Dagostino are helping with this year are a major part of the Gators success when they perform during matches. Putting yourself in scenarios like that kind of helps you for game time, Wise said. Ill refer back to a situation like, Oh, Im at practice and Im serving against this and this person. I just feel like it helps me a lot, like relax me for the game. With Florida never having faced Georgetown or Iona in program history and having only played Western Michigan once in 1999 the Gators week-long preparation for this weekends Active Ankle Challenge was especially important, Wise said.

How do you think he projects as an NFL prospect? Hes versatile. He can put his hand down and knock the cen ter back. He can put his hand down and knock the guard back and play a double team. Hes fast enough to come off the edge and play defensive end and still knock the tackle back.On the latest edition of the alligatorSports Podcast, host Phil Heilman (PH) and Staff Writer Joe Morgan (JM) talk to former Gators Sharrif Floyd (SF) and Justin Trattou (JT) as part of an upcoming story on UF grad Jon Perzley, who serves as the NFL agent for Floyd and Trattou as well as Jermaine Cunningham and Lerentee McCray. Below are excerpts from the interviews, available on SFMy brother, Dominique Easley. I think hes a top-10 pick. I might be biased. I might be biased. I think you might be a little bit biased. SFHes a top-10 pick in my eyes. Again, weve all got our opinions, but Ive physi cally played next to him and seen and practiced with him, so I know what he can do. So hes a top-10 pick in my eyes. Did you see the video of him salsa dancing during the Miami game? SFOh, yeah. He does that all the time. What makes Dominique more angry: when the defense allows a touchdown or when someone touches that Chuckie doll? SFDo you know what actually makes him angry? When you call him Dominic. Thats not his name. His versatilitys got to help for sure, right? Playing inside and out side during his career here at Florida. How much have you seen from this years Florida team? what to expect for the following week, but the key thing for us, for the Gators, really was, from what I saw, was a lot of turnovers. Turnovers. Its hard to win games when you shoot yourself in the foot. And I have faith that theyll clean it up. I think our defense is going to be really good. Im hoping that well have some big playmakers show up on offense for the Gators. Thats one area that, you know, I think our defense is really good, and I would like to see some big playmakers
