KICKOFF INSIDE Freshman Vernon Hargreaves III has impressed Floridas coaching staff with his strong start. Read the story on page 3.ONLINE The alligatorSports football beat writers preview this weekends game between Florida and Tennessee.


JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer@joe_morganTennessee cannot break the Dallas Baker Curse. Thats how Bakers family and friends see it, anyway. The last time the Volunteers beat the Gators, Baker was penalized for unsportsmanlike conUT rally for a 30-28 win on Sept. 18, 2004. Its kind of funny, Baker said of the curse. We joke all the time. Baker retaliated with a shove after Tennessees Jonathan Wade hit him in the facemask between third and fourth down. I wasnt really thinking, Baker said. It all happened in slow motion. Teammates had told Baker in previous weeks to toughen up and play with more passion. In that instance, the sophomore wide receiver simply went too far. I made a boneheaded decision, Baker said. thought about. The personal foul cost UF 15 yards and stopped the clock, helping UT win with six seconds remaining. ing back the tears because my teammates kept telling me it was OK, that we all make mistakes, Baker said. But inside, I felt like I was the reason we lost. Thanks, Dallas, frustrated Florida fans wrote on the 34th Street wall. That crushed me even more, Baker said. Tennessee kicker James Wilhoit was on track for a similar fate that same night. goat as the Volunteers trailed 28-27. Tennessee had matched Florida touchdown for touchdown all night, but a botched extra UF to run out the clock. The Gators seemed destined to claim their third straight victory in Knoxville, Tenn. Wilhoit took the kick for granted. He had never missed an extra point before then as a Volunteer. He admitted he got lazy. He shanked the kick wide right. He was in shock. The sudden reality started to kick in, Wilhoit said. And I said, If this game ends the way it could, then itll be my fault that we lost the game. I was desperate for an opportunity. Once I missed that extra point, I knew that it was my fault and I had just had a really bad mistake. Wilhoit was dying for a second chance. Wade and Bakers exchange gave him hope. When Tennessee got the ball on its own 39yard line with no timeouts and 43 seconds remaining, Wilhoit sought out Volunteers offensive coordinator Randy Sanders. it, Wilhoit told Sanders. Thirty-seven seconds later, Wilhoit split the uprights from 50 yards away. Gators fans mockingly thanked Baker following the game, but Wilhoit said they should be thanking him. Ron Zook was your coach at the time, coach. So, in the long run, you guys may have lost the battle, but you won the war. The war raged throughout the 1990s between the Gators and the Volunteers. After the Southeastern Conference split into two divisions and established the SEC Championship Game in 1992, either Florida or Tennessee represented the East every year until 2002. It became a big rivalry for Florida and for Tennessee, I guess, because we were, in the early 90s, the two best teams in the East, former Gators coach Steve Spurrier said. Tennessee vision championship in those years, so it was a huge game. Wilhoit, who grew up a Volunteers fan, was always invested in the UF-UT series. He said Tennessees rivalry with Florida even surpassed the Vols rivalry with Alabama, known as the Third Saturday in October. Wilhoit looked up to former Volunteers kicker Jeff Hall, who also beat Florida with a Tennessees perfect record en route to winning the 1998 national title. Florida was our hated rival, Wilhoit said. That was the game that I wanted to perform well, and that was one that I always remembered. So to play well in that game and to make that kick made it that much sweeter. After beginning the annual series in 1990, of a run of four straight SEC titles from 19931996. Tennessee played in the Florida Citrus Bowl now known as the Capital One Bowl three times during that span. In the spring of 1997, Spurrier famously joked, You cant spell Citrus without U-T. Florida left Tennessee after 1997, the series inan average margin of victory of only 6.3 points per game. UF even ended up in the Citrus Bowl a couple of times, prompting UT fans to jab right Florida Citrus Bowl between Florida and Penn State with a banner that read: Vols: Welcome the Gators to the FLA Citrus Bowl! Spurrier also enjoyed the increased competitiveness in the late s. He said he remembers every game against Tennessee, but he has a soft spot for Floridas 27-23 comeback win in 2000. All their students were ready to swarm the out there and then all of a sudden they just stood there and looked at each other for a while. So Id say that was my favorite. Although Spurrier got on the nerves of Wilhoit and other Tennessee fans, the kicker always respected the Ol Ball Coach. Wilhoit admired Spurriers will to win. I liked his moxie and his ability and his mentality to kind of go for the throat, Wilhoit said. He was going to go for the jugular. So I respected that part of it. Hes a great coach. The Volunteers faced a nemesis worse than After Ron Zook went 4-5 in games against Georto crush Floridas rivals. And crush them the Gators did, running up a 16-2 record against UGA, FSU and UT during and Seminoles each managed a victory during that span, but the Volunteers were 0-6. Florida has won eight straight contests against UT by an average margin of 15.5 points per game. The past six games were decided by double digits. Tennessee has only three winning seasons six or more games six times during that span. UT last won the SEC East in 2007. The Gators beat the Vols 59-20 that year. cused UF of a recruiting violation involving NuKeese Richardson in 2009. But the claim was lone year as Tennessees coach. different head coaches since 2008. Blame the Dallas Baker Curse? The guy watched us both then threw a So I feel like maybe there is a Dallas Baker Curse. The lopsidedness of recent meetings has resulted in mixed opinions of whether or not the once-great SEC matchup is still a rivalry. Both coaches think so. Its a very important game at the University of Florida. Our players understand the rivalry, what is at stake, UT coach Butch Jones told the Associated Press. I think they understand what has gone on before them. So does Jeff Driskel. It goes way back, the quarterback said. Two storied programs. Since Ive been here, for a while, weve dominated the series, but I know theyre gunning for us. They always do. And Lighthearted questions on players opinions of Rocky Top dominated game week rather than the SEC title implications that seemed at stake every time UF and UT met in years past. Some former players believe the rivalry has lost its edge. This isnt a rivalry for Florida for the fact that they dont think that theyre going to lose to us, Wilhoit said. I dont think that this rivalry is truly going to heat up until we start getting a couple of victories. Former Gators wide receiver Jacquez Green added.I think the fans and sportswriters make it more of a rivalry now. I think a rivalry is when both teams have an equal chance of winning on a yearly basis. But whether the rivalry is alive or dead, the nostalgia remains. I remember telling (Tim) Tebow and all those young guys, This is a game here that you dream about playing in, Baker said. I remember telling them, This is a game that you never want to lose.OL Chaz Green (labrum) WR Andre Debose (knee) LB Matt Rolin (knee) DB Marcell Harris (knee) OUT WR Latroy Pittman (team rules) SUSPENDEDQB Jeff Driskel (knee) OL Jon Halapio (pectoral muscle) DB Marcus Roberson (knee) OL D.J.

Users can also post the pictures to Facebook or Twitter and order prints in different sizes. The free app, which was created through a partnership with the University Athletic Association, launched at UF on Monday, said Fanmento! founder and CEO Jason Muslin.

Kyle Clavier and Ryan Hundersmarck, both 19-year-old UF environmental engineering sophomores, said they think students will use the app. Hundersmarck said it seemed like a good way for clubs and organizations to take group pictures at the games.

BAILEY MULLINS Alligator Contributing WriterUF now ranks fourth nationally among the nations leaders in startup launches. Helping to create 15 startups last year, the university was ranked fourth behind the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California and University of Texas systems, according to a report from the Association of University Technology Managers. UF has almost $700 million dedicated to research. With every $2 million to $2.5 million of research, there is a new discovery, said Jane Muir, associate director of the UF Ofof licenses and options granted, works to help UF students and alumni mold ideas into products that can be patented, licensed and made available to the public, according to a news release. The goal of research is to come up with the discoveries, but those discoveries dont do any good unless they end up in the marketplace, Muir said. UF ranks fourth in startup launches ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgTheres been a great disturbance in the tutoring world. The two main tutoring companies in Gainesville have traditionally competed for students in Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, as both offer tutors. But as of last week, the famous TutoringZone tutor Lauren Figler, has switched her allegiance. I dont think it makes sense for students to have to choose between what were two great alternatives, Figler wrote in an email. While some students could afford to pay for both, many students could not and had to choose. Now, students dont have to make the choice. As for the students who have already paid for TutoringZone membership in the hopes of having Figler as their tutor, Study Edge has a solution. Study Edge is now offering free memberships to the affected students, said Ethan Fieldman, president and cofounder of Study Edge. We dont want students to pay twice for Lauren because, quite frankly, that gets expensive, he said. Fieldman said they have had students come in since the switch spetor. Figler said none of her students have complained about the switch. I dont think its been an issue at all, she said.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 LOCAL BRETT RABINOVICHAlligator Contributing WriterThe Hippodrome State Theatre has a new producing director, the theaters board of trustees announced this week. Thomas Eldon Anderson has been appointed as the new producing director and will begin on Oct. 1, according to a news release. Anderson was chosen by a community committee out of 50 nominees from across the country, said Mary Hausch, the theaters current producing director. His duties will include overseeing the theaters UF student outreach programs, which help bring in 7,000 students to watch productions put on by theater students at the university, Hausch said. Anderson has a keen sense of bringing his knowledge and love of theater and balancing it with an administrative side to help excel programs in place, Hausch said. Anderson said he aims to install new programs to further connect the theater to the community. I want to protect whats good and pose questions to all of Gainesville so I can use all of my resources, he said. Belle Jampol, an 18-year-old UF theatre freshman, said she thinks Anderson will effectively bridge the gap between students and the production house. It is refreshing for someone with an open mind and a creative vision to come in and work to intertwine the students into the Hippodromes productions, she said.New Hippodrome producing director steps in, starts in October The producing director is responsible for: Managing the business side of the theater Establishing community relationships Coordinating with marketing and communications departments Anderson's biographical information: in Texas

Figler called her reunion with her colleague a weight off my shoulders. Its the best of both orgo worlds, Figler said. She has been tutoring students in chemistry and organic chemistry since 2000 and said shes happy her transition allows her to continue doing what she loves. TutoringZone declined to comment. But Fieldman said even with the midsemester move, it was simple. Its a really smooth and easy transition, and the students are really happy with it so far, she said. 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 STUDY, from page 1Shes tutored in orgo since Sid Martin hosts many of theminclude medicine developed to treat patients with brain injuries, gene therapy for blind dogs, a medical records mobile app and an airpad cooling system for Gator football players to use during games.

Luckily, youre holding a pile of papers that function as both an informative news medium and an oversized lovebug swatter! As usual, your friends at the Alligator got you covered. The Fall 2013 fun continued this third week of September in Gainesville despite a certain assistant city attorneys decision to go rogue with a butt-naked break-in of a local womans home. Will Ferrell should star in a new movie this year: Stranger than Gainesville Local Politics. Here we go: Your Im-still-getting-used-to-iOS-7-and-itslack-of-textures edition of . .Darts & LaurelsWere handing yet another LAUREL to Pope Francis for being an all-around rad guy. Yesterday, he told the world the Catholic Church must move beyond small-minded rules, i.e. hating on gay people, abortion and contraceptives. According to CBS News, he said, The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. While we dont exactly plan on becoming your Independent Catholic Alligator anytime soon, we have to give the sage of tolerance. Speaking of intolerance: If youve been on Twitter since the Miss America pageant, you probably saw the onslaught of racist, ignorant tweets about Nina Davuluri. Wow, people on Twitter becoming angry over nonissues and spouting stupidity? Cutting edge. However, it seems the racists of Twitter arent being the only jerks about Davuluris win. According to TIME, people in India have a problem with the color of her skin as well yep, the actual color of her skin. Skeptics say, what with the prevalence of skin-bleaching products in India, that Davuluri would never win a beauty pageant in her parents home country, because her skin is too dark. So this week, a DART to dumb Americans who dont know the difference between Islam and Hinduism, and to Indians who cant appreciate how on-point Davuluri looked in that yellow dress. French Parliament voted to ban beauty pageants for girls under the age of 16, according to NPR. A thanks-for-teaching-little-girls-that-theyre-worth-morethan-their-looks LAUREL goes to the French Parliament although its kinda weird that a bunch of old guys sat around talking about little girls beauty pageants under the guise of the lawmaking process.

Todays question: Have you downloaded iOS7?Public perception of Obama will plummetOften, leaders are remembered for their failures rather than their accomplishments. American presidents are no exception to this rule. According to, the worst U.S. president of all time is James Buchanan, famous for his role in the Dred Scott case and for his lifelong single marital status. Richard Nixon, the 37th president, will be most remembered for the Watergate scandal. However, it would be an injustice and in bad taste to not consider all of a leaders actions when evaluating them. For instance, despite the fact that pseudo-liberals love to denigrate former President George W. Bush for his military endeavors, the former Republican president gave more aid to Africa than any other American president an accomplishment that often goes unnoticed. Under the Presidents Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief program, Foreign Policy reported the U.S. has spent $44 billion on combating AIDS, an expenditure that, according to Secretary of State John Kerry, has saved 5 million lives. This brings us to President Barack Obama, a man of African descent, who has proposed cutting the AIDS relief program budget. How will the 43rd president of the United States be remembered? When evaluating a leader, one should examine both competence and catastrophe so examine we shall. Faced with an economic downturn, two wars and the rising threat of Islamic extremism, Obama inherited a as historic as repealing the dont ask, dont tell policy and as minor as getting the FDA to regulate tobacco, and only homophobes and tobacco planters could oppose such progress. He also passed health care reform and saved the American auto industry. With such progressive polithis president by failure? Well, there are four notable failures that people may choose to remember Obama by. By the time he moved into had promised to close the infamous Guantanamo Bay prison. According to NPR, the prison was supposed to be closed by executive order but was opposed by legislation that prohibited any detainees from being moved to the U.S. Similarly, Obama also advertised himself as a candidate against the Patriot Act in order to distinguish himself from Bush. However, the massive and overly intrusive PRISM scandal left the president exposed. According to The phone records and other personal information. Aside from his post-9/11 Bush-like policies, the greatest defeat that the president has suffered may be in the hands of a domestic enemy rather than a foreign one: the NRA. A series of mass shootings have scarred the Obama presidency, and these were followed only by brief rhetoric and congressional impotence. It seems as though Obama may be a president who cannot follow through on his promises or perhaps an lature has to offer. Regardless of how you will remember the man who won the Nobel Prize, one thing should be painfully obvious: Obama shouldnt cut aid to Africa. Richard Vieira is a UF political science senior.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Bring Noam Chomsky to UFMarx, Lenin, Shakespeare, Aristotle, the Bible, Plato, Freud, Chomsky, Hegel and Cicero: One of these things is not like the others. All of them are ten of the most cited authors of all time, but only one of them is currently living. Noam Chomsky has been called the worlds top public intellectual. In the early stages of his career he revolutionized the study of language an accomplishment that alone would have ensured the preservation of his legacy in the history of science forever. He has contributed more than 30 books Thus, like many people all throughout Gainesville and North Central Florida in general, I was overjoyed to hear that Chomsky was expected to speak at UF this Fall. However, it is now unknown whether or not Chomsky will be welcome to speak at UF, and if he will be allotted a venue worthy of the occasion. It would be criminal to not do everything in our power as a university to host an address by the famous thinker. An appropriate analogy would be if students at an 18th-century French university were not sure whether or not they could accommodate a public lecture by Voltaire. Residents of Gainesville, I urge you to demand Chomsky be welcome to speak in a venue that gives the most people possible an opportunity to see and hear what he has to say. To pass up this opportunity would not only be a mistake but a disturbing act of ignorance. Andrew Pentland UF history seniorLetter to the Editor


8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 THE NOISE WAS A HOT TOPIC AT THE CITY COMMISSION MEETING. PATRICIA POTESTADESAlligator Contributing WriterThe noise emitted by the new Gainesville Renewable Energy Center-run biomass plant, which some have compared to the sound of screaming jet engines, moved about 10 Turkey Creek subdivision residents to voice their concerns at the Gainesville City Commission meeting Thursday. This is condemnation without compensation, Russ Pisano, 72, told commissioners. Pisano said no one had said anything to him about the possible effects of the biomass plant. He only learned about the side effects after it had been built. Turkey Creek residents have also complained the plant causes a sticky wood residue to form on cars left outside overnight. Some said it wafts a foul smell of musty vegetation through the air and lowers home values. Pisano has taken decibel measurements, and when the plant is running, he said, it creates a 20 to 30 decibel jump in noise level. He told commissioners he has not slept well for the past few days because the plant had been running at night. Other residents said theyve had similar experiences. Sleep deprivation is not allowed for prisoners at Guantanamo Bay because its considered torture, said Peter Perkins, 67, a resident of Turkey Creek. But the Turkey Creek community has been subjected to that torture every night for the past few days, he said. The residents have started up a petition in hopes that Gainesville will apply its already established noise ordinance to the facility. The organizers are requesting the biomass plant only run between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. and that it be turned off at night. At the commission meeting, they requested the same reduction of hours. The city commissioners responded saying the same thing Albert Morales, the managing director of GREC, told residents in a letter: GREC is planning to take noise level measurements around the facility and see if there are plant to help reduce the noise. City Commissioner Yvonne Hinson-Rawls told residents the city does have a noise ordinance and may at some time start issuing citations to the plant.Biomass plant could get noise citations after residents complained Sleep deprivation is not allowed for prisoners at Guantanamo Bay because its considered torture.Peter Perkinsresident of Turkey Creek

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG The Florida soccer team will play Alabama tonight at 7. Read the story online at announcedWill Muschamp announced via Twitter that Jon Harrison, Solomon Patton, Leon Orr and Michael Taylor will be Floridas captains against Tennessee. PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer @phillip_heilmanDominique Easley is his own harshest critic. Despite No. 19 Florida boasting the nations third-best total defense the Gators are allowing a meager 208.5 yards per game this season Easley, the unquestioned leader of the unit, In my life, I strive for perfection, Easley said. If theres no perfection, theres no greatness, and we are supposed to be great. Raw numbers suggest Easley and the UF defense have already succeeded in reaching greatness even if the 6-foot-2, 285-pound senior defensive tackle believes otherwise. The Gators have allowed 13.5 points per game 17th fewest in the country despite facing Toledo and Miami, teams that have combined to average 30 points per game when not facing Florida this season. UFs defense has been even better on third down often considered the money down for great defenses to help the Gators control the ball each game for 39:04, the nations top time of possession. Of the 24 third-down conversions attempted by the Rockets and Hurricanes, the Gators percent success rate, which is 7.3 percent better than any other defense in the country. Still, Easley believes there is room for improvement before the Gators can be considered an elite defensive unit. Our goal is not to let an offense score, period, he said. So once we manage to get that stat, we could say we have one of the best defenses. Of his own play, Easley added: I think I can play better. I just gotta step it up more. D.J. Durkin expressed a more positive opinion on Easleys play when asked Wednesday, was pleased to hear of Easleys desire for selfand team-improvement. Hes played better than all right, Durkin said of Easley. Im glad hes hard on himself that way. Hes a very self-motivated guy. That nitely been better than all right. Easley has spearheaded Floridas defense this season. He is tied for second on the team with two tackles for a loss and three quarterback hurries. He has also added four total tackles. His play has caught the attention of former Florida defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd, who spent three seasons in the trenches with Easley. Hes a top-10 pick in my eyes, said Floyd, who is now a defensive lineman for the Minnesota Vikings. Weve all got our opinions, but Ive physically played next to him and see and practiced with him, so I know what he can do. Easleys versatility will be put to the test against Tennessee on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in ture one of the nations staunchest offensive lines and have allowed just two sacks in three games this season. Its a big challenge for our [defense], Durkin said.

Our favorite announcers, Uncle Verne and Gary, return to The Swamp for what should be Floridas ninth straight victory against the team that couldnt even beat the Gators with the greatest quarterback to ever live. No, were not talking about Tyler Bray. Here to debate the college football game of the week are Phil Heilman and Joe Morgan. Theyll be debating No. 23 Arizona State (2-0) vs. No. 5 Stanford (2-0) because the Southeastern Conference slate is as putrid as Tennessees quarterback play. Its just downright stinky. Arizona State (+9) will pluck every string off Stanfords old banjo because... Their mascot the Cardinal is a color. Not the bird. A color. Thats all I really have to say about the Paegons good. Joe Morgan Stanford (-9) will drink all of Arizona States moonshine because... Andrew Luck is really good. Have you seen that guy throw the football? Wait, what? Hes in the NFL now? Well, I have always been a big fan of trees.

Blind squirrels occaNext up at 16-7-1 is alligatorSports editor Phil Tough Love Heilman, who could use an appearance on a VH1 dating show after revealing his recent relationship status or lack thereof. Live it up, Phil. I heard some of those Tennessee fans Tied for third at 15-8-1 is alligatorSports Staff Writer Adam Happy ValCollege, Penn., to visit his girlfriend last week. He probably spent more than just gameday in Beaver Stadium, if you know what I mean. Just kidding, Im sure shes a nice, respectable young lady. Also tied for third at 15-8-1 is alligatorSports assistant editor Adam I have no fashion sense Lichtenstein, who rocked some nice Sperrys with white crew-cut socks at the Florida-Miami game. Jeez, I know you love your mother, but I think its time you have her stop buying your clothes and dressing you in the morning. Also tied for third at 15-8-1 is alligatorSports Staff Writer Joe WE DONT NEED TEBOW, OK?! Morgan, who continues to root for the most hopeless team in the NFL. Cmon, Joe, its time to move on. No ugly uniform combination or washed up quarterback will ever save that franchise. Coming in fourth with a record of 14-9-1 is 247sports.coms Thomas Toledo Rockpunt scheme in the locker room this week. Dude, its Toledo. Florida couldve fallen Tennessee moonshine for the second and still have beaten them. Quit fetishizing stats!

Thompson, who is more defensive of his lifestyle than Brent Pease is of Floridas offense for fear it will be printed in these pages. Chill out, Edgar. Nobody reads newspapers anymore, right? Also in dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 12-11-1 Bryan Baby Mama Holt, who bagged, well, something the night before the Florida-Tennessee game in Knoxville last season. If you see an abnormally small baby wearing jorts with a mullet and crying for some creamsicle, you know where his bloodline lies. PICKS, from page 14

Durkin said. Hes is at, hes one of those guys in the mix. Hargreaves will likely get a greater opportunity to showcase his skills this coming week because space has cleared at the top of the depth chart. Senior Jaylen Watkins previously started at cornerback, but this weeks depth chart listed him at safety. Hargreaves was and is still listed as a second-team player, but both Muschamp and Durkin said he will see plenty of reps during the game. I think Vernon is the furthest (freshman) along as far as being out there and helping us, Durkin said. star prospect coming out of Tampa Wharton High, according to, and he has lived up to the hype so far this season. Teammates and coaches alike have praised his knowledge and his athleticism. Obviously he has great talent and ability to play the position, Durkin said. Hes a very mature guy.
