KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Gainesville Police raided a local Internet cafe Tuesday after an investigation showed it could have been operating in violation of a recently passed Florida law. At about 1:30 p.m., detectives gathered inside Gators Hot Spot Sweepstakes, located at 2109 NW 13th St. Two hours later, they loaded more than 50 computers into the bed of a pickup truck to investigate for a possible violation of Florida Statute 849, which recently banned paying to play games for cash prizes at establishments such as Internet cafes. After several weeks of investigation, detectives gathered enough information to bring a case before a judge, who then issued a search warrant, said GPD Lt. Will Halvosa. said. However, the business owners could face two felony charges keeping a gambling house and playing prohibited lottery as well as charges of playing games by chance and operating illegal slot machines, both misdemeanors.

Patrons would pay for Internet access, which came with free entries to play games cafe operated before the law.

screenshotThis is the lock screen for the iPhone iOS 6.1.4 software system, the last update prior to the iOS 7 release. SEAN STEWART-MUNIZ Alligator Staff Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgApple iOS7 comes out today, but think twice about updating without backing up your data. Ross Newman, founder and CEO of iHospital, said backing up phone data is always important, whether a phone is stolen, lost, or just updating to a new operating system. Newman said its rare for an update to cause data loss, but with any major change there are kinks in the system that have to be worked out. He said to minimize the chance of corrupting a phones data, restore it to its factory settings after backing up data and then update the software. We always see people when theres new software coming out who have accidentally wiped their phones, he said. Unless they have a recent backup, theyre in trouble. Riley Richards, an 18-yearold UF English freshman, said she used to only back up her data every few months until she tried updating her new phone. I guess I pressed the wrong sync button and everything was just gone, she said. It was pretty stressful. Megan Raitano, a 21-yearold UF anthropology senior, said her phone has been wiped several times, but she still only backs up her data once a year at most. My photos are automatically backed up to Dropbox, she said. Everything else is pretty unimportant to me.

REBECCA TURKELAlligator Contributing WriterThe Hippodrome State Theatre reached its goal of $15,000 to fund a so it can continue showing movies. Proceeds from the Kickstarter campaign, which began in July, will go toward upgrading projector technology inside of the Hippodrome. Small theaters across the country are raising money to make the switch as the national movie industry disconNow that the Hippodrome has the funds, the upgrades are expected to begin within the next couple of months, cinema director Alisha Kinman wrote in an email. The Hippodrome reached its goal two days before the deadline and plans to raise additional funds to support further improvements, such as adding cupholders to theater seats, she said. Kinman attributed the campaigns success to working with an arts-driven community. Alison Hassell, a 20-year-old UF marketing junior, said she enjoys attending events at the Hippodrome and is excited to see the updates. Itll probably attract more people to the theater because they know the quality of the feature presentation will be better, Hassell said. The updates will enhance the theaters appeal, especially to the student community, Hassell said. Kinman agreed. We thrive on the concept that you will not just leave our movie theater with a ticket stub, Kinman wrote.

Youre gonna get what youre gonna get, she said, comparing it to the popular McDonalds lottery game, where restaurant patrons pull tabs off menu items and collect the pieces to win prizes. The games also dont involve skill. To play another turn, patrons just click a button on the bottom corner of the screen. But, people love it, Westbrook said. As she explained the games, patrons sat with their faces bathed in a bluish glow, clicking to play the next round, buying more Internet access or switching games. Its just a mindless gesture, said 52-year-old Donna Libby, playing Aqua Splash, one of the newest and most popular games. Libby said much of the excitement accompanying the game came from the gambling aspect when she didnt know how much she would win. However, she said, she still enjoys playing that its something to do on a slow afternoon. Just before the detectives came puters Tuesday, Libby drove up, cellphone in hand. She predicted many of the cafes regular patrons will do what they did in the hiatus between the law going into effect and the opening of Gators Hot Spot: catch a bus south to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. She was one of many who drove cars, rode bikes and walked up to the business hoping to use computers on the day of the raid. They gathered in the parking lot with their windows down, yelling back and forth to decipher the story and phoning their friends to share the news. Roger Scott, 48, had ridden his bike to the cafe, prepared to redeem his access card which had $10 left over from his last visit. But Lt. Halvosa said police wont deal with patrons outstanding credit. Its something theyll have to handle with the business, he said. Aside from losing some money, Scott agreed with many other regulars that the cafe was an outlet away from home. It was something to keep you out of trouble, he said.

I think it is effective in the sense that I wont ever jaywalk on University again. Tobias said the goal is to prevent jaywalking on University Avenue. Whether they do it elsewhere or what, weve at least corrected that particular problem, he said. Tulande said she suspects GPD is simply trying to make money off of students. But Tobias said the tickets are not for revenue building. If it hits you in your wallet, and it hurts a little bit, youre less likely to make that same mistake again, he said. One student took his ticket to court. Donovan Triplett, a 20-year-old UF advertising senior, was walking on the jaywalking ticket. so Triplett said he assumed he could walk across. Triplett, with his headphones in, said he he was not allowed to walk. Triplett brought his case to court and lost. He had to pay his jaywalking ticket and take a drivers improvement course.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5Kan Li / Alligator StaffSen. Paul OQuinn voices his concern for pulling $20,000 from Student Government reserves to fund a campus veteran memorial. The memorial will go on to the second reading next week. IT WILL COST $84,509. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff Writercwright@alligator.orgThe Reitz Union might get one more project tacked on to its construction to-do list. While four other bills unanimously sailed onto a second reading at Tuesday nights Student Senate meeting, one bill supplying funds for an improved campus veterans memorial simmered in the Senate chambers. Senators Michael Filipelli and Joseph Michaels proposed an allocation of $20,000 of reserve Student Government funds to renovate the current Veteran Memorial at Liberty Pond. The updated memorial will include 11 granite monuments engraved with enough space for 1,200 names of UF attendees who have fallen as soldiers. The whole project costs $84,509. The remaining cost is planned to be included within the Reitz Union construction project budget. Although he was in favor of the project, Sen. Paul OQuinn was concerned about pulling from the reserve funds and suggested savyear. This is an expense that can be planned in advance, he said. I feel the reserve is an emergency fund. Sen. Elliot Grasso defended the proposal, explaining that pulling from the reserve funds would not hurt funds for student organizations. This is a great use of funds, he said. Its something that every Memorial could become part of Reitz makeover LIFESTYLE VALERIA YULEEAlligator Contributing Writer emotion on social media, a recent study shows, and negative online reactions to the Miss America pageant results seem to reinforce the Angry and racist responses to the crowning of Nina Davuluri, a 24-year-old Indian American from New York, seem to follow the patducted by researchers at Chinas Beihang University. The study found anger to be the media. Anju Kaduvettoor Davidson, assistant director of the UF Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations, said the Twitter responses to the Miss America pageant results stem from ignorance. Theres some racism related to 9/11 or terrorism, and people are uneducated about where people are from, said Davidson, an Indian American. I think people end up using that information to generalize, and they take out some of the anger about other things and apply it here. According to study results published in an MIT Technology Review on Monday, the research team focused on the way messages enced people on the same network. The study observed Weibo, a Chinese social media platform similar to Twitter, to gather its data. The researchers concluded that angry messages were more likely to be reposted up to three degrees from the original user this included angry responses to the original message. A few factors might attribute to this behavior, said Andrew Selepak, director of UFs online masters program specialization in social media. aspect of social media, he said. People think they have the ability to say anything, and they can hide behind a username and believe that Carlos Soria, a 32-year-old UF mass communication graduate student, agreed social media makes it easier to share angry emotions. The power of social media has given users a mask to spew hatred online, and it continues to have a major impact on the way we anonymously communicate, he said. Davidson said she wonders if the people tweeting angry remarks would act differently if they didnt have a cyber mask to hide behind. People feel they have more of an outlet to be heard on something like social media, she said. Its semi-anonymous, but would these people say it outside of this cyber world?

Trevor Abbott, a UF mechanical engineering senior, and Ty Parker, a UF mechanical engineering alumnus, designed Spin Chill, a cylinder that uses a drill to spin a can of beer or soda in ice and cools it within 30 to 60 seconds. Abbott and Parker came up with the idea for Spin Chill while they were participants in the HackerHouse program for entrepreneurs. Abbott said eight cadets lived in a house downtown for three months to plan their inventions. an RV, they decided to create something that would make the beer cold. Abbott said after spending hours in Walmart, he and Parker found a Black & Decker drill, ripped it apart and threw together their new invention. Abbott said the 30-day Kickstarter campaign has a goal to raise $10,000. If Abbott and Parker do not reach their goal, they will not receive any of the pledges. The two inventors have been spreading the word about Spin Chill and their campaign by visiting gameday tailgates and posting on social media.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Response to Richard Vieiras Friday columnIn response to Richard Vieiras article on U.S. intervention, I wish to reiterate that self-determination for the Syrian people doesnt equate to a regime change by the U.S. or any other foreign government. Also, his mention of Hezbollah being a terrorist group is meaningless when the state department labeled Nelson Mandela and African National Congress a terrorist organization until 2008. Its not surprising that an anti-imperialist group that has the hearts and minds of the people resisting domination would be and Israel. He also described the Christian population without any mention of the attacks they have faced at the hands of the Free Syrian Army where the Assad government serves as their only protection against ethnic cleansing. To end, his notion that Syria must be Balkanized shows his lack of understanding of the how disastrous that would be for the Syrian people. Why are Americans being used as pawns to support a group that has elements of al-Qaeda and waves a Eric Brown UF political science juniorLetter to the Editor Last week, Yeezus Tour tickets for Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar performances came out. Here are a couple of things you probably had to go through to get them. 1. Peer pressure. Before attempting to purchase your tickets, you probably had a lot of your friends telling you, YOU CANT NOT BUY THEM. ITS BOTH OF THEM. AND US. AND MAYBE EVEN NORTH WEST. And after hearing different versions of this, you probably succumbed and went to the ticket website immediately. 2. The refresh button. If you have spent many a ets button for a special concert, you know how this feels. Who knew that one button could have #allthat3. Stressful internal debates about ticket prices. You probably had some real mental struggles when you realized you had to resort to spending more than double the original price you were going to have to pay. You probably told yourself, Well, Ill just starve for the next month and went ahead and spent that extra $100. You probably felt guilty, but the thought of K and K being in the same room as you was enough to make you go through with it. 4. Realizing that you paid more than you should have. After all the beautiful fantasies of yourself jumping into swimming pools full of liquor with Yeezy and Kendrick and using those dreams as your validation for buying tickets you may or may not have realized that you could have paid a lot less than you already did. Its OK. Weve been there. 5. Excessively listening to Kendrick and Kanye. You and your fellow concert-goers probably created a new Yeezus Tour playlist on Spotify that you shared with each other and have been listening to in between classes, while youre studying, before you go to sleep, when you wake up in the morning, while youre using the bathroom, while youre working out and while youre getting #turntup. of it, remember that you can always sell your ticket! There are tons of Kanye and Kendrick fans around you on this hip and happenin campus, so dont worry too much. And if you decide not to sell your ticket and that youre gonna get down, girl, go head get down, then all we have to say to you is, See you there! Gabrielle Nguyen is a writer for the University of California Berkeleys student newspaper, The Daily Californian. This piece originally appeared on UWire.How you felt buying Yeezus ticketsUWireGabrielle NguyenUWire Since the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obamas signature health care law in March 2010, Republicans at all levels of government have made every effort to weaken and sabotage the law. The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives has voted a staggering 40 times to repeal some or all of the legislation. They have held these repeal votes despite the fact that the proposals stand no chance of passing the Democratic-held Senate or being approved by the president. At the state level, many Republican governors have refused funds provided by the federal government under the act to expand Medicaid, the popular state-based program that provides health care to the poor. As of June, governors of 13 states, mostly in the South, had publicly stated their refusal to cooperate in the Medicaid expansion. Gov. Rick Scott of Florida initially refused these funds before he relented and agreed to the expansion in February under pressure from health care advocacy groups. The latest Republican attempt to sabotage the Affordable Care Act relates to individuals known as health care navigators. These navigators are employed by community health organizations and other social service groups and are tasked with helping uninmost affordable health insurance possible. Many of the people who will able Care Act have never had access to health insurance and therefore need the assistance of trained and affordable coverage. the country have placed severe restrictions on these navigators. In Georgia, the state insurance commissioner issued a requirement that the navigators pass the same exam administered to insurance brokers, despite the fact that federal law clearly separates the two positions. At least 16 states have issued some kind of regulation restricting the ability of the navigators to do their jobs and enroll individuals in new health insurance plans. Gov. Scotts administration recently joined in on the trend of attacking the health care navigators. A directive issued by the Florida Department of Health bans the outreach activities of navigators hired to help uninsured Florida residents sign up for health insurance. A spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Health, Ashley Carr, wrote that Navigators are not acting on behalf of the [Florida] Department of Health and this program has raised privacy concerns due to the consumer information that will be gathered for use in a federal database. Although much of the Republican opposition to the health care law stems from concerns about government intrusion, the expressed about the creation of a federal health database are completely unfounded. Contrary to Gov. Scotts statements, consumers will never be asked to provide their personal health information to the marketplace, whether through a navigator or not, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters told the database of Americans health information, and multiple independent fact checkers have debunked this claim. Ironically, by imposing these burdensome and harsh regulations on the navigators, these Republicans are engaging in the same kind of unnecessary government overreach they claim to oppose. The restrictions on navigators issued by the Scott administration opposition to Obamas policies, vide to the people of Florida. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 3.8 million Floridians about a quarter of the states population are uninsured, giving Florida the third-highest rate of uninsured residents in the country. Florida would therefore from the services of the navigators. Regardless of whether Republicans support the health insurance framework the Affordable Care Act creates, the role of these navigators is simply to help conthem. Gov. Scott and his fellow state-level Republicans should get past their strident and thoughtless opposition to the Affordable Care Act and focus instead on helping their constituents.

DAVONA WILLIAMSAlligator Contributing WriterJayson Blaire said he wanted to join a fraternity before entering college until he realized drinking heavily was one of the requirements to be accepted. Its really not that uncommon, said the 18-yearold UF family, youth and community sciences freshman. Everyone does it. Whats crazy is that its bad in college, but in high school it was even worse. A study published Monday in 10 high school seniors are extreme binge drinkers. The study, which was published in JAMA Pediatrics, a Journal of the American Medical Association extreme binge drinking as consuming 10 or more drinks in one sitting. It found that the percentage of high school seniors who report binge drinking has decreased from 22 percent in 2005 to 18.1 percent in 2011, but the percentage of extreme binge drinkers has remained virtually the same. Young adults who binge drink can experience consequences, said Dollicia Green, a registered nurse who works on the Theres a lot of damage that happens, Green said. It physically changes the brain and thins the prefrontal cortex. Really, youre losing brain cells each time you do it. Its important to understand that these are real-life effects. Its more serious than we tend to think. Social drinkers who begin consuming alcohol at an early age have increased chances of addiction, said Maureen Miller, Promotion Services. Theres been quite a bit of research that says that the brain is continuously developing well into the 20s, she said. So the issue of potentially becoming addicted even at a young age is an important psychological effect that comes into play when dealing with binge drinkers. But there isnt a magical answer to getting young adults to slow down, Miller said. The environment the culture we live in promotes the message that teen drinking is OK, she said. Its a billiondollar industry. Think about the accessibility of alcohol. Its cheaper than buying a bottle of water in some cases, and its right across from campus. Given the popularity of alcohol among a younger crowd, Blaire said, some things dont change after high school. Its like, if you didnt drink you werent cool, he said. People wouldnt invite you to parties. You were just weird. In high school, it was like that, and its like that now in college. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2013One in 10 high school seniors are extreme binge drinkers, study says SAMANTHA SCHUYLERAlligator Contributing WriterThree local groups have teamed up to launch My Gainesville Map, a community project where residents can create personalized maps of the city. The project is a three-way partnership development Agency. Residents are asked to draw over a The project is an intersection of mapping, community building and citizen art, ning. The idea for the project was inspired by the book Mapping Manhattan by Becky ized maps of Manhattan made by locals. the project, said she wondered what kind of maps Gainesville residents would create. be a personal interpretation of the city. People could use their map as an opportunity to write down things they miss, she said. They could use it as an opportunity to talk about something they think should change. Redevelopment Agency hopes to use the maps to see what the citizens want out of the city, said Sarah Vidal-Finn, senior analyst at the agency and one of the other founders of the project. The maps would open a conversation between the citizens and those who maps are an opportunity to express ideas for the city with a lot of people listening, including the redevelopment agency. The maps can be downloaded from or picked Maps will be posted on the website, derson said she hopes there will be a public showing. John Fechtel, a 23-year-old UF architecture and sustainability and the built environment junior, said he would be very interested in creating a map of his own. Seeing the maps other people create would also be a great way to discover parts of Gainesville he never realized existed. I mean, I just discovered Burrito he said.

BAILEY MULLINS Alligator Contributing WriterWith the 40th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act approaching, a new UF Institute of Food and Agricultural sciences survey has found that Floridians are making protecting endangered species a priority. The online survey of 499 Floridians found that respondents ranked the importance of endangered species 11th out of 15 public issues and were strong supporters of legal protections for endangered species. The survey was conducted basically to assess where Floridians are at with respect to endangered species, said Tracy Irani, direcin Agriculture and Natural Resources. Not only are Floridians strong supporters of the Endangered Species Act, but also 66 percent of respondents felt it should be strengthened, even if that means infringelators. The act was created in 1973 to protect plants and animals that have declined in numbers usually due to human activity, said Dan Evans, technology and research specialservancy. The act has some loopholes many due to enforcement, said Evans. has harmed or harassed an endangered species in a court of law, he said. Florida has 47 endangered animal species and 44 endangered plant species. The biodiversity in Florida puts environmental issues high on Floridians radar, according to Irani. I think its the nature of the state, she said, we are in the natural habitat a lot more. they were likely to actively protect the environment through activities like joining a conservation group, while 55 percent said they were more likely to avoid doing anything harmful. Evans said the biggest way to engage people in conservation activities is through education. Its sort of a clich, Evans said, The biggest thing is letting people know easy steps they can take to be proactive, rather than big, colossal, life-changing things. Evans said when environmental issues impact people personally, they are more likely to take action. ida and is becoming more aware of water issues because of the sinkholes, Evans said. The survey was one of four public opinion panels the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences will conduct this year, Irani said. The institute hopes to continue to conduct the surveys annually.Endangered animals a priorityEmily Cochrane / AlligatorInstrumental InstructorsSaxophone professor Jonathan Helton, left, and chamber music professor Steven Thomas, right, perform Tuesday evening in the Music Building.

KAYLA MARCUSAlligator Contributing WriterAlachua County Public Schools teachers and employees are now featured artists at the Thomas Center Gallery this season. A new exhibit opened Friday titled The Artist in All of Us, which showcases a variety of pieces created by Alachua County art teachers and other employees. The show is scheduled to run through Nov. 16 and is located in the Thomas Centers Mezzanine Gallery, located at 302 NE Sixth Ave. ty schools staff exhibition was opened up to all employees of the county schools, not just the art teachers, said Debbie Gallagher, an Alachua County Public Schools curriculum specialist. We came in with open arms and invited everyone to participate this year, she said. The exhibit features about 50 pieces from more than 20 artists including paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, mosaics, textile works, photographs and furniture, according to a news release. One of the custodians does graphite sketches that will be featured in the gallery, too, Gallagher said. The pieces were chosen for the gallery by a committee of city and ital submissions of the artwork in the spring and narrowed it down to about 50 entries, Gallagher said. Diane Brody, a recently retired Alachua County science teacher, will have three oil paintings depicting nature scenes displayed in the exhibit. I was passionate about passing on what I knew as a teacher, Brody said. Now Im passionate about painting the environment to remind people how special and fragile it is. Brody worked as a teacher in the state of Florida for 24 years and in Alachua County for seven. Im an environmentalist, she said. Thats what drives me as an artist. A reception for the exhibition will be held Oct. 4 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Historic Thomas Center.

Thomas Center features Alachua County Public Schools staff artLOCAL GRACE KIMAlligator Contributing WriterAfter complaining about a dozen unkempt medians scattered near Millhopper Square along Northwest 16th and 23rd Avenue, one business owner is trying to take matters into his own hands. Rob Pruitt, the owner of Father Phils restaurant in Millhopper Square, said the weeds are bad for business. He sent an email to David Cerlanek in the Alachua County Public Works Department offering to take on the median maintenance himself. But in return, he asked for supplies including a push mower and a weed eater. I can tell you without a doubt I can do everything cheaper than a government bureaucracy, Pruitt wrote in the email. Cerlanek responded to Pruitt, saying median work can be dangerous. He said the medians are currently maintained by inmates and funded by the county. Heavy rainfall and declining resources cause delays in the maintenance, he said. Your excuse for lack of funding and weather as reasons you cannot maintain the roadways in this city is just more bureaucratic BS, Pruitt responded later. Pruitt isnt the only one concerned with the medians appearance. The road is one of the worst in town, wrote resident Becky Hoover in an email to city commissioners. Regardless of how it gets done, Gillies Marllart, of On the Spot Dry Cleaning located in Millhopper Square, agreed more rigorous maintenance would be better for business. Your business does better when the area is more inviting, he said.Messy medians spark complaint IT WILL RAISE MONEY FOR GATORS MARCH FOR BABIES.

At the event, patrons can check in via social media and be entered to win a $50 gift card. Brett Ader, the owner of Humble Pie, said these events tend to be a success for both vendors and residents.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG The No. 4 Florida volleyball team swept No. 17 Florida State on Tuesday night. Read the story on page 14.Cross country runners honoredJimmy Clark won the Southeastern Conferences Mens Runner of the Week, while Carlos Miranda won the SECs Mens Freshman Runner of the Week.Pease accepts criticism for Floridas red-zone strugglesRyan Jones / Alligator ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24A year ago, Trey Burton was on top of the world. The junior running back rushed for 91 yards and two touchdowns against one of the Gators biggest rivals. Burtons second touchdown four unanswered Florida scores in the second half against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium as the Gators defeated the Volunteers 37-20. You know, we were down at halftime and we came back in the second half and played really well as an offense, Burton said. But Burton has not replicated that success on the ground since that night in Knoxville, Tenn. Both of the seniors touchdown runs against Tennessee last year were out of the Wildcat package, where Burton lines up at quarterback and takes snaps. The formation is designed to confuse the defense so Burton can break off a big gain. It worked against the Volunteers but has seen only mixed results since then. Since that game, Burton has rushed 27 times from the Wildcat package for a total of 95 yards an average of 3.5 yards per carry. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Tuesday that he believes the package is generally successful, working a majority of the time. But when Burton rushes out of that package, he usually fails to gain much ground. Six of Burtons 27 rushing attempts have gone for negative yards since UF played UT last year. When Burton did advance the ball on the ground, it was often only for a modest gain. Thirteen of those 27 rushes went for gains of 5 yards or fewer. Despite the lukewarm results, Pease said the Gators will stick with Burton in the Wildcat. Other Gators believe the package can continue to be successful, too. I really, really enjoy [the Wildcat], Burton said. I think it works really well. I think we wouldnt do it if it didnt work. Added defensive lineman Damien Jacobs: Its going to be a mismatch for a lot of people, because Trey just has a nose for the end zone. The mismatch did work occasionally in 2012 aside from Tennessee. Burton managed three runs of 10 or more yards, including a 24-yard carry against Florida State that helped lead Florida to a I think were always trying to in the red zone we can put him in that situation and make some plays, Pease said. Florida has had more success when other players get their hands on the ball out of the Wildcat. For the rest of the regular season following UFs win against UT, when Burton lined up at quarterback and handed the ball off, ball carriers averaged 8.2 yards per touch. Former wide receiver Omarius Hines averaged 10.8 yards in the Wildcat; former running back Mike Gillislee averaged 5 yards out of the formation. Both of those players are gone. The two players who received touches from Burton who are still on the roster are wideout Solomon Patton and tailback Matt Jones. The two combined for 20 yards on three rushes. I think its a big plus with Solomon with so much speed, Jacobs said. [He and Burton] can make big plays on that all day. Burton has moved around the offense since he came to Florida. Originally a quarterback, he has had limited opportunities to throw out of the Wildcat. Since the Gators played the Volunteers last season, he has thrown four times, completing three passes for 4 yards. His last pass attempt was an incompletion directed to his brother, tight end Clay Burton, against Florida State. The Wildcat is primarily a running package, but depending on Peases play calls, Burton may get a chance to relive his past exploits whether it is his long runs from last year or his passes from high school. Burton said.Wildcat providing mixed results for UF JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer@joe_morganStill looking for a scapegoat to take the fall for Floridas red-zone struggles in its 21-16 loss to Miami in Sun Life Stadium on Sept. 7? Brent Pease will take the blame. The second-year UF offensive coordinator put the Gators failures inside the 20yard line against the Hurricanes squarely on his own shoulders Tuesday. Me, in particular, I have to do a better job, Pease said. sively under Peases direction, racking up 413 yards of total offense against the Hurricanes. But the Gators turned the ball over point loss. Quarterback Jeff Driskel, who threw for a career-high 291 yards, received heavy criticism following the game after ending two red-zone possessions with interceptions. Pease said Driskels miscues were a result of how he handled the junior signal caller. Weve all got liabilities, Pease said. Ive got to do a better job of maybe limiting or controlling what we give him. The options. Hes mature enough. Hell handle things. Pease also admired Driskels maturity ing the loss. The offensive coordinator said accepting a disproportionate share of blame for losing is just part of being a quarterback. Jeffs a strong kid. I dont think anybody deserves all the blame, Pease said. He understands when he makes a mistake, but hes a competitor. Hes never going to just give up. Youve got to appreciate him at some point in time on that. Halapio to return: Coach Will Muschamp announced Monday that Jon Halapio (partially torn pectoral muscle) will start at right guard against Tennessee on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Florida is excited to get Halapio back, but the team acknowledged it may take the redshirt senior time to adjust to game speed. He might just have to knock the rust off the hinges a little bit, center Jon Harrison said. Knowledge-wise, his competence is there. Just like the physical part about it, of course, hes missed a little bit of football now, so theres just going to be that little acclimation period. Even if Halapio needs time to adjust to the physicality of a game, Harrison believes the return of the Gators right guard will help the offensive lines communica-Pease I think were always trying to see where in the zone we can put [Burton] in that situation and make some plays.UF offensive coordinatorQuotableTrey Burton UF receiver on Rocky Top.

CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator Staff Writer@chuckkingsburyWith Week 2 of the NFL season in the books, here are a few former Gators who made the most tangible impact for their respective teams. Jordan Reed, tight end: The Washington Redskins selected Reed in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft despite already having three players at the position. That depth did cism and playmaking ability against the Packers on Sunday. The former Gator took advantage of his few opportunities, hauling in three catches on three targets for 18 yards and a touchdown quarter. Reeds statistics were not especially memorable, but he demonstrated an ability to both run and pass block a criticism against the tight end coming out of Florida. After a strong showing from the rookie particularly in the red zone Reed could earn more snaps as the season progresses. Riley Cooper, wide receiver: Cooper has Kellys up-tempo offense but had only a modthe Chargers on Sunday. The 6-foot-3, 222-pound wide receiver caught two passes for 25 yards and a touchdown despite being targeted just three times. Cooper made an impact on several other plays especially when Kelly dialed up bubble screens outside the formation serving as a formidable blocker on both the edge and perimeter. Although he may not be on the receiving end of many plays other than a few deep crossing patterns, Cooper can certainly act as a box-clearing decoy for the run game or as an effective interior blocker to spring the likes of in 2013. Carlos Dunlap, defensive end: Dunlap and fellow Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson had little trouble pressuring opposing quarterbacks in 2012, combining for 17.5 sacks on the season. The duos success has not changed two weeks into this season. a sack in 2013. Cincinnati ranks seventh in the NFL in total defense, surrendering 300.5 yards per game. Dunlaps contributions can go largely unnoticed because he isnt a box-score hero. But his discipline, sideline-to-sideline speed and If the Bengals are going to win the AFC North this year, Dunlap, along with their front seven, will need to be sound. Notes: 49ersdefensive lineman Ray McDonald suffered an apparent right leg injury in the fourth quarter versus the Seahawks when an opposing player inadvertently fell onto his leg on the line of scrimmage, according to Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis recorded six points on Sunday against the Colts, including longest made attempt in the NFL in 2013.

MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoPamela Begics hair is gone. Not just an inch. Not just a few inches. But every blond strand that once hung from her head. wanted to cut her hair for more than a year. She found the opportunity to make it happen during the weekend. I never really had the guts to do it, Begic said. I thought it was the perfect time to do it, and I just did. She said the humidity played a small role, as the hot, sticky Florida weather was here from Slovenia. meant she could escape some of the heat while donating it to those in need. With soccer dominating the majority of the weekend, Begic said it became a team bonding experience. Everyone wanted to do a little snip, so I just let them, she said. We just went crazy. Sophomore defender Brooke Smith helped Begic style her hair after most of her teammates took turns cutting a strand. I have to give credit to Brooke Smith, Begic said. She perfected it. The new hairdo got a great reaction out of teammate Savannah Jordan, who did not realize Begic had it cut. She shocked me last night, Jordan said. At 12 oclock, she came to my room, [because] I room with her, and she had a towel on her head from the shower. She pulled it off and I was like, Alright; OK. Coach Becky Burleigh found it to be a bold move. I like it, Burleigh said. She looks good, very brave. Not sure I would have had the courage to do that. The courage Begic has goes much deeper than her shocking hair cut. The former Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week has made huge strides while adjusting to college soccer in the U.S. Burleigh noted earlier this season that the team had struggled both defending But Begic caught on quickly and led the set piece this season. the Gators, scoring on a header from a corner kick in the 54th minute during a 4-0 victory against Florida International on Sept. 1. Then, Begic followed it up with another goal off a header from a corner kick in the 9th minute against Oklahoma on Sept. 6. have been on goal. Her ability to score from set pieces is just one advantage the Gators get from their rather large pool of raw, young talent. When Alabama steps foot in James G. Pressly Stadium on Friday night at 7, it will see a much different team than the one it beat 1-0 last season. With core newcomers Begic and Jordan, along with the added experience of juniors Havana Solaun and Annie Speese, the throughout the roster. I think the non-conference portion of the season tells you a lot about all players, and especially the freshmen because its said. But you start the SEC, and thats a little bit of a different animal. It steps the game up a little bit. As far as Begics new haircut goes, Burleigh believes it could be a blessing in disguise. Shell be able to get everywhere on time because so much (more) low maintenance, Burleigh said. Maybe shell be intimidating to [opponents]. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 Courtesy of UF Communications SOCCER
