The craft beer industry in the U.S. lept from 1,970 craft beer breweries in 2011 to 2,483 breweries this year, according to data from the Brewers Association. In keeping with the trend, downtown Ocalas third annual Craftoberfest is set for next month, which will feature more than 100 beers. Brandon Nappy, Swamp Head Brewerys marketing manager, said he thinks the spike in craft beers can be linked to people paying more attention to what theyre drinking. People are paying more attention to whats in their glass, he said. They are paying attention to the product, how it tastes and the whole experience. As for the craft beer market growing beyond its demand, Nappy said he thinks there is plenty of room to grow because there is a time and place for every kind of beer. I dont think that people light lager, he said. We all like lighter, lower-alcohol, easydrinking beer during a tailgate. But for the most part, the main reason craft beer is growing is because people are learning to types of beers. Lindsey Graetz, a 21-yearold UF recreation, parks and craft beer at World of Beer in Jonesville, agreed. She attributes the recent upward trend of new breweries and more consumer interest in craft beer to the quality of local brews. People are willing to spend more and enjoy themselves, she said. Steve Smith, product manager at World of Beer, has seen hand. Hes been in the beer business for 12 years, and he said it has grown exponentially. Our best events always revolve around Florida beers because people are really excited about them, he said. Smith also said beer drinkers should stay on the lookout because Florida is quickly becoming a new home for breweries. Graetz said the best part of local craft beer is that the people behind the beer are personable. They share the same interests, she said. They love the Gators. They arent some CEO in a factory.VOLUME 108 ISSUE 25 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2013William A.

I never thought of becoming a politician, he said. I thought it was a joke. However, he said he found he could make a change through politics. Gnesis Lara, 21, a UF history senior and executive director of this years Hispanic Heritage Month celebration, said she picked Castro to speak at the event because he is a role model for minorities. She said she thought of having Cuban-American Sen. Marco Rubio but did not because of Rubios stand on immigration reform. Jos Miranda, 21, a UF political science and international studies senior and president of the Hispanic Student Association, said Castro has been a spokesman for the Hispanic community for years. Castro is an immigration-reform supporter, and minorities can relate to him, she said. His parents migrated to America and had to struggle for Castro to get an education. grants, Lara said.

Kids at school are still picking on Amber [my twin sister] and it is not fair because she does not do anything to them and it makes me mad. I prayed they would stop, but God is busy and I need your help. Is it against the rules to give up gifts early? To add salt to the wound, his sister suffers from multiple mental disorders. Bullying-related suicides and revenge shootings at schools shock our conscience. Florida, like other states, has enacted a tough anti-bullying law to reduce further tragedies. The legal response to the bullying crisis reveals our reactive cultural mindset. Instead of dealing with the core issue, were lazily patching up the symptom which is better than nothing. The root of bullying a disregard for others emotions pervades all our interactions, from kids to adults. The perceived innocence of childhood prevents us from making sense of this kind of meanness, leading the victims to self-destruction. For the rest of us, we accept that life is unfair and begrudgingly endure interpersonal cruelties. We escape the resulting inner sadness by seeking joy elsewhere. Past generations could never dream of the technological sophistication we enjoy today: Realize, for example, that the processing power in our iPhones exceeds that of the Apollo moon missions. No longer are vast amounts of data restricted to the elite few information equality governs the Internet. Despite all this progress, we forgot how to be human. Atheists write skillful critiques on the irrationality of organized religion while the faithful lament on airwaves about godlessness plaguing society. As advocates of some worldview or the other, weve become experts on intellectually destroying each other with polysyllabic posturing. But we somehow forgot how to be human. Compassion is the chief law of human existence, wrote Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Our disregard for each other and perpetual neglect of moral truisms e.g., Do unto others as you would have them do unto you is wreaking societal havoc. Take the recent case of the Alligator exposing UFs rape culture and compelling readers to deal with homegrown sexual violence. As pursuers of a gentler world, lets dig deeper. The barbarity of rape is lost to many from my gender for whom objectifying women is perfectly normal. For many men, a young womans worth comes solely from Once again, if we lived by the treat others as youd like to be treated line, no self-respecting male could imagine reducing others to mere physicality. Too many lives hang in jeopardy from pledges at fraternities being publicly humiliated under the guise of fostering brotherhood to poor American families being cut off from food stamps by a callous Congress for us to play the waiting game. The solution lies within you and me. Compassion begins with increasing empathy and kindness in our interpersonal dealings and culminates in a nation guided by ethical policies. Imagine the sorrow endured by Amber, the mentally ill schoolgirl. Her 8-year-old twin brother is begging Santa for help. The ball is in our court: If you and I decide to lead lives considerate of others feelings and pain, my faith in trickle-down ethics convinces me that little Amber wont have to wait for Christmas.

Todays question: Are you tired of Ryan Lochte?Cheese-spiracy: The govt is behind our dairy obsessionOur national obsession with all things cheese from pizza to Easy Mac to the yellow stuff on stadium nachos that forms a skin when not eaten right away Science in the Public Interest published a report card grading Americans on their eating habits. In the area of dairy, we scored an abysmal C-. Although consumption of full-fat ice cream is down and consumption of yogurt is up, our cheese consumption has nearly tripled since the 1970s. Americans used to average eight pounds of cheese per person per year. Now, were up to 23 pounds. Yep, 23 pounds of congealed stadium cheese per person. What a time to be alive. We can attribute this unhealthy increase to a number of culprits the rise of cheesy dips such as Moes queso, for exaffair with cheese is, believe it or not, the government. In his 2010 New York Times article While Warning About Fat, U.S. Pushes Cheese Sales, Michael Moss relayed a story about how an organization called Dairy Management partnered with Dominos Pizza to create a pizza with 40 percent more cheese after the pizza conglomerate suffered a dip in sales. Moss, the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist behind Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us, said the sneaky increase in cheese resulted in skyrocketing sales. However, one slice of the cheesier pizza constitutes more than two-thirds of a days maximum recommended daily amount of saturated fat. Dairy Management is not a private business consultant, Moss wrote. The organization was created by the United States Department of Agriculture, and its purpose is to work with restaurants and food vendors to pump more cheese into their menu items. Urged on by government warnings about saturated fat, Americans have been moving toward low-fat milk for decades, leaving a surplus of whole milk and milk fat, Moss wrote. Yet the government, through Dairy Management, is icans diets, primarily through cheese. How can the Department of Agriculture be both a marketer of agriculture products and Americas nutrition police, as Moss put it? The two roles just dont mix, like Sunny Delight and Oreos. This presents a horrible ethical dilemma, and it diminishes the messages from activists like Michelle Obama who are The Department of Agricultures Dairy Management is in bed with junk-food giants like Dominos, McDonalds and Pizza Hut, and were willing to bet some kinky stuff goes on there Cheez Whiz is probably involved.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Last month, I wrote a column about Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), the congressman who represents Gainesville, and his support for cutting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, more commonly known as food stamps. Yoho, along with 216 of his fellow House Republicans, displayed that support on Thursday when he voted to cut the SNAP program by $40 billion over the next 10 years. SNAP provides low-income, elderly and disabled Americans with monthly subsidies that help them put food on their tables. about $133 per person in 2012, small but critical subsidies for the nearly 48 million Americans who currently receive them. Many supporters of the SNAP cuts argue these spending reductions are designed to root out waste and abuse in the program. Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who also voted for the cut to SNAP, said the bill would help get the aid to those who need it most in their hour of need, without the kind of rampant waste and abuse that you see. However, experts on the SNAP program assert that the proposed cuts would have no impact on any waste or fraud in the system but would instead harm millions of Americans who rely on the program to purchase food. The SNAP cuts proposed by House Republicans would have devastating effects on millions of low-income Americans. In 2014 alone, 2.1 million people from lowincome families would lose their SNAP bento the federally subsidized free school-lunch program. The adult members of these families are employed but are simply not earning enough income to afford food for themselves and their families. The problem of employed Americans relying on SNAP could be largely solved by increasing the minimum wage to a level that allows workers to provide for themselves and their families. Of course, raising the minimum wage is universally opposed by congressional Republicans. If the supporters of SNAP cuts are truly concerned about waste and overspending in the budget, they might start with the massive subsidies the federal government is currently ry farms and agribusinesses. Between 1995 and 2010, farm subsidies averaged about $52 billion a year. Although this amounts than the $80 billion spent on SNAP in 2012, 75 percent of those subsidies went to just 4 percent of the busitions like Archer Daniels Midland Company and Monsanto. SNAP, which go entirely to low-income Americans who cannot afford food on their own, these taxpayer dollars are being provided to assistance from the government. One explanation for the support in Congress for cutting food stamps while allowing farm subsidies to grow is that some legislators In 2012 alone, 15 members of Congress received a total of about $238,000 in farm subsidies, including crop insurance and disaster relief payments. The family of House Committee on Agriculture chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), which strongly supported the massive cuts to SNAP, has received more than $40,000 in farm subsidies from 1995 to 2012. Fortunately for the millions of Americans who rely on SNAP, the bill passing by the House containing the SNAP cuts is considered dead on arrival in the Senate. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, called the bill passed by the House a divisive, extremely partisan political exercise that is going nowhere. large corporations while millions of Americans go hungry is both immoral and harmful public policy. The support among Congressional Republicans for cutting SNAP while maintaining current levels of farm subsidies is shameful and unconscionable. Elliot Levy is a UF public relations and political science junior. His column runs on Wednesdays.Congress cuts are hypocritical Column Every sitcom tious male, a primary couple and characters in messy situations with fantastic apartments. But The Mindy Project and New Girl, which run back-to-back on Fox, take the same tropes in entirely different directions. In both shows, the main character is a young, professional, single woman with a college education and a penchant for awkward situations. Her love interests are a series of gorgeous white men with great smiles, and she is unlucky with almost all of them because she has insane amounts of sexual tension with the angry-but-sexy guy friend. New Girl highlights the actors talents with slapstick comedy and jokes about relationships. The characters are stereotyped. The writers built satires, not people. Jess is positive. Nick is gruff. Schmidt is, well, Schmidt. The downside is that the writers depend on Zooey Deschanel remaining quirky. The most notable example is season 2s Parents, in which Jess tries to Parent Trap her divorced mom and dad back together. This woman is 30 years old. No amount of adorability should make this an acceptable plot line. The Mindy Project treats its characters like people. The viewer sees Mindy for her wants, her desires and her hopeful cynicism. She is, in many ways, the viewer. But The Mindy Project isnt perfect. Just like Parks and season, Kaling needs to listen to her critics and tweak the parts that are failing. The secondary characters on Kalings show are not nearly as memorable as the ones in New who play them. Viewers dont know Morgan, Jeremy and Betsy outside of Mindy. There are too many fascinating minor characters typically played by celebrities to allow for character development to happen. The viewer doesnt need to care about Seth Rogen or James Franco. They need to care about the regulars, and often they dont because they are rarely given their own storylines. They exist solely to live around Mindy and say witty things. It is unlikely New Girl will change its formula, because it has too many devoted viewers. Luckily, its not too late for The Mindy Project to reach perfection. Get rid of the guest-star clutter, focus on the friendships and make it an ensemble piece. New Girl and The Mindy Project need to learn from each other or combine into one supercharged lady-sitcom.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NFLFormer Florida offensive lineman Xavier Nixon signed a contract with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday. Nixon was cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers in August. Redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg is Floridas new No. 2 option at quarterback. Read the story on page 14. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24After missing Floridas season opener against Toledo on Aug. 31 due to a viral infection, Matt Jones was expected to boost Floridas running game to the next level upon his return. But two games into his season, Jones has not returned to the form that helped him rush for 275 yards as Mike Gillislees backup in 2012. Because Jones has struggled since returning from his illness, No. 20 Florida (2-1) has elected to feature a collection of running backs with no one runner dominating the majority of carries. Kids think things are going to be perfect all the time, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. Theres ups and downs, peaks and valleys. Jones was expected to garner the majority of touches when he returned, but junior Mack Brown received 24 carries compared to Jones 12 against Tennessee on Saturday. Both tailbacks struggled to break off long runs each halfbacks longest run was for 13 yards. Brown averaged 3.6 yards per carry, while Jones averaged 4.1. Brown and Jones both scored against the Volunteers, but the two touchdowns came from 3 and 4 yards out, respectively. Pease said he was unsure whether Jones illness was still affecting the sophomore runner. Jones said last week that he was almost back to his original playing weight of 226 pounds, but it did not show against Tennessee. Jones had trouble penetrating the Volunteers defense and only managed 49 yards on the day. [Jones is] a bigger back, coach Will Muschamp said, and sometimes it takes those guys a little bit longer to get into their rhythm of playing. When Jones got a chance to make a play receiving the ball, he cost the Gators a possession. The running back caught a pass from quarterback Tyler Murphy and tried to switch ball-carrying hands popped out of his hands as he was tackled and bounced directly to Volunteers defensive back Cameron Sutton. You cant switch the hands coming across the middle off of a catch, Muschamp said. He knows that. That was a basic fundamental of ball security that you cant violate, and he did. Saturdays turnover was the second in two games for Jones. He fumbled on his third carry of the season against Miami on Sept. 7. To add more spice to Floridas running game, coaches said they will look to get freshman Kelvin Taylor more involved with the offense. Kelvin needs to continue to come on, Muschamp said. How much playing time the son of former UF tailback Fred Taylor sees will depend on how he performs in practice during the week.Matt Riva / Alligator Staff Florida to feature Jones and Brown at tailback position JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer@joe_morganJeff Driskel will undergo seasonending surgery today to repair a fracHis recovery is expected to take 4-6 months. The procedure will prevent Driskel from traveling with the team to Lexington, Ky., when it takes on Kentucky on Saturday. But until his health improves enough to travel, Driskel will do what he can to contribute in Gainesville. Although Driskel will not take the volved with the Gators, attending daily meetings and taking part in game planning. I dont want him to just disappear and not be around, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. Hes got to be around. Hes got to stay in tune with what were doing offensively. A role Driskel serves in the immediate aftermath of his injury is one of support for new starting quarterback Tyler Murphy, who will make his Wildcats. It began late Saturday, when Driskel texted Murphy, Its your time now. He was very encouraging, Murphy said of Driskel. Driskel still helping GatorsTHE ADAM BOMBChants of Ty-ler Murphy! Ty-lerMur-phy! Tyler Mur-phy! rippled through the student section as quarterback Tyler Murphy had the Gators in the victory formation for a third and 14 at their own 20-yard line. Murphy Fever infected the alumni section as the entire Swamp echoed a name nobody expected to hear when Tennessee and Florida kicked off just hours earlier. The kid deserved it. After doing the unthinkable and waiting expense of quarterback Jeff Driskels unfortunate injury. Football can be a cruel game and it reared its ugly head Saturday. Yet, out of the ashes rose an unknown, an underdog, an overlooked quarterback athletes everywhere could get behind. Florida fans loved Murphy on Saturday because he won. His players love him because his hard work got rewarded. I loved him because I was also Tyler Murphy. Im not proud of a .214 batting average my senior year of high school. But I also played more because of a teammate and good friends injury. I had my fair share of Murphy moments. Perhaps Murphy wont be the savior of harm in getting behind him. Fans never rallied behind Driskel because he arrived as the next savior. He was the nations top-ranked quarterback and Urban Meyers handpicked successor to the Tebow Murphys success fun to watch Adam Pincustwitter: @adamDpincus [Jones is] a bigger back and sometimes it takes those guys a little bit longer to get into their rhythm of playing.Will MuschampUF coachSEE ADAM, PAGE 15 SEE NOTES, PAGE 15 SEE BACKS, PAGE 15QuotableThats one big kid.

MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoLauren Silver runs the ball wide. As an outside back, Silver capitalizes on her playmaking abilities when the Gators use the width of The junior defender has already topped her assist record from last season, earning four as one more than she earned through 24 games in 2012. Two of her assists came from corner-kick opportunities, maksisted on goals off the set piece in her career. She said she owes a great deal of her playmaking this season to her experience from the past two years. I cant even describe the amount of things I think Ive learned from UF soccer, Silver said. As I continue to grow on the team, I think Ive learned a lot and experienced different things, like facing the weather, and experiencing a lot of adversity. Being able to go into my third year and have all these different challenges that weve already gone through, kind of gets us prepared for what we have to come against this year. Silvers role on Floridas backline will be an important component facing Southeastern Conference opponents Mississippi and Missouri on the road. Limiting Mississippi senior forward Rafaelle Souza in the attacking third will be key for Florida. Souza, a native of Brazil, has scored 27 goals in her career at Ole Miss one of them coming against Florida in 2012. The Gators maintained possession early in last years two matchups against the Rebels, leading them to two victories. Silver said the teams ability to control the pace of play early in games will help it this weekend. To carry that on is really imally dictates how its going to be played out, Silver said. If we sions and get a couple chances before the game even gets to sit in, I think thats just going to intimidate their team and bring a different force towards them. The Miami native will also see a familiar face going into Sundays Missouri matchup. Former Florida Atlantic soccer coach and Team Boca club coach Brian Dooley is Mizzous assistant coach this season. Silver played on Dooleys club team before coming to Florida, but she said shes learned more playing the Gators style of soccer. If theyre teaching their teams based off my team, we all bring different things to the table now, Silver said. I might have learned some things [from Dooley], but other people have taught me things as well. We only have one style, and I dont think anyone really plays like us. Coach Becky Burleigh thinks both teams will test Florida with an aggressive offense, but she is idas defense have developed in recent years. I think Lauren has embraced what she does very well, Burleigh said. She has some shortcomings, but she doesnt let those shortShe takes defense very personally, and because of that, she does not like to get beat. 14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2013Kan Li / Alligator StaffLauren Silver dribbles the ball during Floridas 3-0 victory against Alabama on Friday at James G. Pressly SOCCER UF ACCEPTING DONATIONS TO TROOPS.LOGAN MCGUIREAlligator Writer@loganjmcguireFlorida, the defending Southeastern Conference champion, will open its season at the threeday Pinch A Penny All Florida Invitational on Friday in the OConnell Center. The mens and womens diving teams are looking to improve after having six top-20 performances in the 2013 NCAA Zone Diving Championships. Were looking pretty good, diving coach Donnie Craine said. Im very excited about where we are right now. The All Florida Invitational a meet UF has won since its debut in October of 2010 will feature six other schools from the state of Florida: Florida State, Florida Atlantic, Florida Southern, Miami, Florida International and Nova. Miami has one of the best [dive teams] in the country, Craine said. Were looking forward to competing with them. Florida will be without redshirt senior Chris Jones, who suffered a shoulder tear and underwent surgery in April. Craine expects Jones, who was one of Floridas best divers last season and is ahead of his scheduled recovery, to return for the SEC Championships in February. With Jones out, Craine is looking to redshirt sophomores Emily Mosher and Kahlia Warner will make an impact this season. Mosher went into the conference meet last year, did not score a point, he said. I expect her to score points this year, because shes improved a lot over the summer and in this fall. [Warner] is probably the most talented, but she didnt have as much experience. After spending the last 28 years coaching at Florida the longest tenure of any coach young squad. Most of his team had never performed a 10-meter platform dive when they arrived at UF, he said. To dive off of 35 feet and hit 35 miles an hour, it takes a lot of courage, he said. Craine is focused on extending his divers season to the NCAA Championships in March and making an impact on the swimming and diving teams national title hopes. Unfortunately, it does come down to points, not just, you know, how theyre doing, Craine said. When it comes to the NCAAs, the divers have one meet that we go to. If we dive well, we qualify. If we dont, were sitting at home watching the swimmers leave, and its not fun to do that. This seasons All-Florida Invitational has special meaning for Craine and swimming coach Gregg Troy. UF will be taking donations of new and unused items to be sent to deployed U.S. troops in all branches. Both coaches have sons in the military. It means a lot to us to have the association with the military between both of our sons, Craine said. Were excited about being able to help out the military.Florida opens season Friday PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanSkyler Mornhinweg is in a position this season one snap away from becoming No. 20 Floridas starting quarterback. After Jeff Driskel suffered a seasonleg against Tennessee, backup quarterback Tyler Murphy became the Gators new starting signal-caller. UFs new arrangement means Mornhinweg will back up Murphy for the rest of the season. The redshirt freshman is next in line if Murphy were to be injured at any point in 2013. I dont know if he knows the volume of everything yet, because you still have the growing pains of learning all of it, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. Hes smart. Mornhinweg, who is 6-foot-2 and 214 pounds, had several scholarship offers coming out of Philadelphia St. Josephs Prep. He was rated a four-star recruit by ESPN, which ranked him the 19thbest quarterback in the Class of 2012. He chose Florida instead of Penn State, Stanford and Tennessee. Mornhinweg spent last season working with the Gators scout team while redshirting. Hell be taking about one-fourth of the reps, like in most back-up situations, coach Will Muschamp said. Skyler will be the backup. Max Staver will move over (from UFs scout team) and work with our offense for preparation of the game. Mornhinweg is the son of Marty Mornhinweg, who serves as the offensive coordinator of the New York ished his high school career with 4,912 passing yards the most all time at St. Josephs and 1,243 rushing yards. He understands football because hes grown up around it, Pease said. The thing now that hes going to lack is true game speed and getting in there where they actually hit you. That would be a next step we have to take. I dont think anybody in that situation would be totally ready for what Jeffs gone through. Staver is a true freshman from Brentwood, Tenn. Senior receiver Trey Burton, who attempted 12 total passes in 2010 and 2011, would be another option Mornhinweg new backup following Driskel injury UF Fo otball To dive off of 35 feet and hit 35 miles an hour, it takes a lot of courage.Donnie CraineUF coach


throne (sorry, John Brantley). He was the untouchable player with high expectations that came with the lofty territory. It has not gone as planned. Driskel will be back next season and very well could be the starting quarterback again. For the time being, Floridas own David is about to face a string of Goliaths that include LSU, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida State. The redshirt junior looked like a poised veteran facing a Southeastern Conference defense. He looked more comfortable than an experienced Driskel hobbled by a sprained knee. Murphys bursts of speed, esque spirals invigorated the Florida fan base. His teammates and coaches were happy to see him get the call. By all accounts, Murphy has been the consummate professional in the Orange and Blue. He asked Will Muschamp at one point to work with the scout team to better prepare the Gators and improve as a player. Take the thoughts of senior defensive back Jaylen Watkins, who lived with Murphy on campus last year. From what it sounded like, Murphy spent every waking hour on football. It is his life. Watching him against the Volunteers, I couldnt help but think back to my Wally Pipp moment. Here one second and gone the next. Brent Pease brought up a great point Tuesday. Its easy to come into a game as an unknown, but theres nothing unknown about a quarterback who was trending nationally on Twitter during his debut. People will be able to game plan for him now that they see the tendencies that he has or what they see that he can hurt defenses with, Pease said. Now, Murphy is everybodys favorite quarterback. Hes still the guy who came off the bench and carried his team to victory. Hes still the guy who replaced the President people voted out expectations, the guy who replaced the quarterback people wanted more from. Its about to get real for Murphy. For Davids everywhere, heres hoping the honeymoon turns into a happy marriage. He said he just was just going to help me along the way. The support continued when Floridas signal-callers met with Pease on Monday. Pease said Driskel also approached him in addition to reaching out to Murphy. He told Tyler and said it to me, Whatever you need me to do, Ill be glad to help. Im there for you, Pease said of Driskel. Hes a supportive teammate. Northern native: Dominique Easley would never travel to Kentucky for reasons other than football. Make that any place south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Easley, a Staten Island, N.Y., native, said the South feels like a different country. He even arranges to have Northern food mailed to him. He just cant take Southern cuisine. Me and the South dont mix, Easley said. Just dont mix. If I dont like to be there, I wont be there. Meanwhile, Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease is excited to visit the northernmost school in the Southeastern Conference. There is one Bluegrass State staple he grew to love during his two seasons as Kentuckys offensive coordinator in 2001 and 2002. Horse racings awesome, Pease said. Pease attended the Kentucky Derby twice and said he has indeed enjoyed a mint julep. He also attended Wildcats basketball games at Rupp Arena, but the horses stole his heart. I always go back to horse races, Pease said. Extending the streak: Florida has defeated Kentucky in 26 consecutive meetings. Pease does not want to see the Gators winning streak snapped on his watch. You kind of feel the pressure, Pease said. You dont want it to end. Obviously, theres tradition there, and you got to continue to carry it on. Pease was part of the series during his two seasons with the Wildcats. Florida defeated Kentucky both times during Peases stay in Lexington, Ky. The Gators led then by Steve ing against Pease in a 44-10 blowout in 2001 but only squeaked by the Wildcats 41-34 under Ron Zook in 2002. Its something I think that, you know, when I was there, and Im sure they have in the past, they continued pumping into you, Pease said of how UK approaches UF each season. This is the time to do it. Lets prepare to break the streak.

But since August, Taylor has seen only one carry for three yards, which came in the middle of the second quarter on Saturday. Earlier this month, Muschamp criticized Taylors abilities to perform outside of running the ball. After Florida defeated Toledo, he said Taylor needed to continue progressing in other aspects of the position. But on Tuesday, Pease compared Taylors progress to where Jones was at this point in his career. Jones hit his stride as the season progressed, and a year later, he is a key cog in runoriented Floridas running machine. [Taylor] is kind of hitting that e Matt did last year when Matt starting showing up and do ing good things in practice, Pease said.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2013 RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Writer @rjschafferAlex Holstons career at Florida is off to an impressive start. Holston, a freshman right-side hitter for the Gators, is taking opponents attention away from seniors Chloe Mann and Taylor Brauneis with her play so far this season. It was really nice to see the emergence of Alex Holston continue [in Milwaukee], assistant coach Dave Boos said. Shes really getting more and more opportunities now. Our team is starting to use her in situations where we hadnt earlier in the year, and she came out there with [eight] kills and two blocks and had a great match. Holston wasted no time getting acclimated to college volleyball. She had the best opening-weekend hitting percentage by a starting freshman in school history with a clip of .436 while playing against New Orleans, LIU-Brooklyn and Duke. Since then, she has done nothing but improve. Despite not being Floridas top offensive threat the freshman is behind Mann, outside hitter Ziva Recek and middle blocker Simone Antwi Holston ranks third on the team with 94 kills. She sees the game really, really right now in that, Boos said. So, what youll see a lot of, especially in the tougher situations off a dug ball, is throwing the ball to her and letting her bail us out a little bit. Among UF players with a minimum of 175 attacks on the season, Holston currently ranks No. 2 on the team with a hitting percentage of .410, trailing only Mann. That clip is fourth best in the Southeastern Conference and 31st in the nation. hitting percentage are freshmen. Two of those players Alabamas Krystal Rivers and Tulanes Sarah Strasner rank ahead of Holston. With the Maryland native continuing to adapt to the college game, her role could increase. What were doing is giving her more balls in bad situations, Boos said. Early on its like, Okay, come on give Alex the good situations and let her get used to the college volleyball. Now, its, Give Alex any ball you want because shes putting it away.Freshman right-side hitter becoming important aspect of Floridas successKan Li / Alligator StaffAlex Holston hits the ball during Floridas four-set win against Western Michigan on Sept. 14 in the OConnell Center.
