The monthly event -Canines and Cocktails -was held at Chop Stix Bistro. MCKENZIE COLLARDAlligator Contributing WriterThe Alachua County Health Department issued a mosquito advisory earlier this week, announcing that mosquitoes capable of transmitting diseases such as the West Nile virus are swarming the county. Paul Myers, health department administrator, said theyre the most potentially disease-carrying mosquitoes the county has seen in years. Myers said the increase in population may be due to consistent rainfall and warm temperatures among other conditions. Phillip E. Kaufman, a UF associate professor of veterinary entomology, said most Florida counties have mosquito surveillance systems in place to track populations year-round. Kaufman said the City of Gainesville usually does a good job of controlling mosquito populations, including treating still water at development sites with products only toxic to larvae. The city will also begin fogging if there are especially high numbers. He said Alachua County does not have a mosquito control department due to cost and a low population of people in many areas of the county. It is more important to take the proper steps than to try home remedies, he said. Myers said mosquito populations will decline as the weather begins to cool but will not completely go away For now, he suggests taking precautionary measures, including avoiding the outdoors during the times of dusk and dawn, wearing clothing that covers the skin and using good-quality repellant. He also advised residents to drain standing water frequently, paying attention to bird feeders, house gutters and pool covers.County mosquitoes could be carrying diseasesHealth department has issued an advisoryKaufman PATRICIA POTESTADESAlligator Contributing WriterThe Florida Department of Transportation presented the proposed route and design of a new walking and biking trail to be built on the UF campus in 2015 at an open house Thursday night. The UF Campus Greenway trail will begin on the south side of Hull Road, west of Southwest 34th Street and will connect many of the already existing campus trails until it reaches South Newell Drive and ends at Archer Road. through university property, said Mike Osipov, vice president of Volkert Inc., the project. With construction costs estimated between $2.5 million and $2.8 million, the trail funded federally. The designers of the project chose to use different materials throughout the trail to fects on the natural environment, said Gene Quinn, principal in charge of the project. Chandler Otis, 59, a bicycle salesman and mechanic, said he has been anticipating this trail for about 15 years. The trail will ultimately connect Hawthorne to Archer so people will be able to ride their bicycles continuously through those areas, Otis said. This is going to be a wonderful thing, he said.Public sees plans for 2015 UF walking, biking trailCAMPUS ABOUT 90 PERCENT OF STUDENTS DROP OUT. ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgOnline classes may be changing education, but students study habits are not. About 90 percent of students drop out of these massive open online courses, according to major course providers. MOOCs are courses that are, in general and certainly for UF students, are not taken for credit, said Andrew McCollough, assistant provost for teaching and technology. As a consequence, ishing the course, the number is relatively low. However, this doesnt mean the mission of the courses has failed, he said. The main idea of this type of education was to provide higher education at low or no cost to everyone, which doesnt involve providing grades and credentials. You can imagine that if you were interested in robotics just because it sounds strange and SEE MOOC, PAGE 4 As a consequence, it is not surprising that in terms of enrollees relatively low.Andrew McColloughassistant provost for teaching and technology

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Although shows like Greys Anatomy took a gigantic, melodramatic step back in the world of music aligning with a scene, the art is still alive, most notably in Breaking Bad. As we head into moments you actually used the app Shazam. SPOILER WARNING. No. 5: TV on the Radio: DLZ In a scene that starts out like an American wet dream, Walt heads to the Home Depot for some KILZ coating. This DIY white-picket-fence fantasy was inspired by his recent remission news, and in the beginning of the episode, he informs Jesse of his decision to quit the business. But as we all know, Walts ego is the size of Gales Star Trek collection. While heading to the checkout line, Walt notices a Jesse look-alike small-time methamphetamine cook whos buying acetone, lye and other household products used to cook. After Walt lends a friendly neighbor tip different items, different stores the meth newb is spooked and runs away. While in line, shoulder-to-shoulder with his common-man peers, Heisenberg begins to emit through Walts pores and DLZ starts to play. He ditches the coating and heads out to the parking lot, where he tells the two amateur-hour meth cooks: Stay out of my territory. No. 4: Los Cuates de Sinaloa: Negro y Azul Your high school Spanish class should get you as far as the meaning of this song, but its your freshman year of college English class that will get you to understand the song and Walts black and blue imagery black for Heisenberg, blue for the meth. This is the episode after that junkie got his head cold opening is a music video of a narcocorrido band performing an original song about a gringo meth cook whose product is attracting the attention of the cartel. No. 3: Nat King Cole and George Shearing: Pick Yourself Up Show creator Vince Gilligan said, As they always teach in writing class, steal from the best. The masskillings-done-in-three-prisonswithin-two-minutes montage felt like something out of The scene, I was streaming it while living in Argentina, and trying to describe how amazing the episode was with my basic Spanish to my host mom was futile though meth in Spanish is metanfetamina! No. 2: Quartetto Cetra: Crapa Pelada ASAC Schrader described Gale Boetticher hes got degrees up the wazoo, right? And, uh, as you might expect, hes a nerds nerd, right vegan, sandals-and-socks kind of guy. As it turns out, hes also A-number-one meth cook. Beyond the Major Tom music video and his love for poetry, Gale was also a music savant who uncovered this Italian gem about a man with a bald head. He sings along to the song in a perfect recital just as Gus shows up to his apartment to discuss their bald-headed friend. No. 1: Darondo: Didnt I When this lost 70s soul jam was played on the show, Walt had hair. When Darondos only inkling of a hit song came on, Walt was living another American Dream of putting a jerk in his or her place by blowing up his or her car at a gas station. As the former pimp-turned-singers song began to enter through your speakers, Walter White began to transform into Heisenberg. His use of the squeegee as an explosive device by sticking it into the gas tank of that most catching moments of Walts transformation from Mr. Chips into Scarface. After that, hed poison kids, leave addicts was at this moment that he broke bad with a sweet song. Im going to slide this prediction in there for no reason: Marie kills Walt in the end.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 Ryan D. Jones / AlligatorSoul MachineBrooklyn-based artist Gramatik brought his signature electro soul beats to the Florida Theater on Tuesday as part of The Age of Reason tour. Exmag and HeRobust joined him. IT WILL COST ABOUT $80,000. HALLEY WHARTONAlligator Contributing WriterOCALA The Ocala Drive-in Theatre received a digital projector after winning an online competition Monday. The drive-in earned the projector as a prize for garnering a high number of votes in Hondas Project Drive-in, which featured nine drive-in theaters across the country and invited people to vote for which ones should receive the upgrades. The voting period ended Saturday. The program was originally but decided to give four more away to save additional theaters, said Charles Watzke, one of the Ocala Drive-ins owners. In April, 21st Century Fox announced that by summer it would the type the theater plays every week. Many American drive-ins have closed already due to the tal projection, which costs about $80,000. Watzke reopened the Ocala theater in 2011, after it had been closed down for eight years. Representatives from Project Drive-In originally contacted Watzke, asking him to participate in the contest, he said. The project was created by Honda to help prevent American drive-ins from going out of business. When voting, participants were given the option to donate money toward the projectors. Now that the contest has wrapped up, the program, which features a U.S. map with pinpoints indicating the locations of driveins across the nation, will keep working toward saving as many drive-ins as possible, Watzke said. Sara Ulrich, a 20-year-old UF advertising junior, used to go to the drive-in when she lived in Ocala. The drive-in theater was always so much fun to go to when I was younger, Ulrich said. Now that they have the new projector, I want to go back and experience the drive-in again.Honda to fund Ocala Drive-ins digital projector upgrade ANGELA SKANEAlligator Contributing WriterAt the beginning of the second day of voting for the Peoples Choice award at National Red Bull Flugtag Miami, the Gator Aviators were in last place.

The Gator Aviators took home the Peoples Choice award. Famiglietti, a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior, sent about 2,000 text messages asking for votes.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG The Florida swim team opens its season today with the Pinch A Penny All Florida Invitational. Read the story on page 16.Captains announcedCoach Will Muschamp announced via Twitter that Solomon Patton, Ronald Powell, Hunter Joyer and Tyler Murphy will serve as captains against Kentucky. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanDante Fowler Jr. had two weeks to wait for, visualize and put into action his plan to wreak havoc on the Tennessee offense. After turning in a subpar performance during a 21-16 loss to Miami on Sept. 7, Fowler stewed during Floridas bye week waiting impatiently for another opportunity to make a difference. His redemption came against the Volunteers. Now, the Gators coaching staff hopes this Fowler the freak athlete capable of disrupting opposing offenses with jarring hits is here to stay. Dante really let it loose, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. That was more indicative of what we feel like we can see from him every week. For everything Fowler failed to do against the Hurricanes he totaled just three tackles, one for a loss he accomplished in full force against the Volunteers. It all started on Tennessees opening possession. Beginning its drive at the UF 15-yard line after punter Kyle Christy botched a snap on fourth down, UT looked to run off right tackle on second and 8 from the UF 13-yard line. Fowler had other plans. The sophomore Buck linebacker barreled into the backrunning back Rajion Neal, forcing a fumble. Fowler pounced on the ball setting the tone for Floridas defense, which forced six turnovers in a 31-17 victory. I actually spiked the ball down, Fowler said. Then I thought about it like, Oh snap, Im going to get a personal foul. He ended the game with two We here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column know how to choose our words wisely. Well, at least we like to think that we do. OK, take it easy. Youre reading this, arent you? Hey, at least we dont cause a train wreck whenever we open our mouths like the one and only Kanye West. Is that guy just high all the time? What is his deal? We dont know much outside of football hell, we dont know much about football at all but were sure of one thing: Either Kanye is a genius far, far ahead of his time were talking like 3,000 years or the guy is just absolutely off his rocker. The whole thing is just sort of bonkers. And who hates Jimmy Kimmel? When it comes to late-night talk show hosts, we thought everybody hated Jay Leno. Well, no disrespect to Ben Afhere. Were headed to Kentucky! This week, we have Phil Heilman and Adam Lichtenstein debating the LSU-Georgia game. Sarah Silverman is 1,000 times funnier than both of them. Georgia (-3) will come out smelling like roses against LSU because... I never was much of a fan of Georgia until I picked former Bulldog quarterback Matthew Stafford for my fantasy football team this year. Hes been awesome. Turns out his prodigy, Aaron Murray, isnt so bad himself. Murray will be solid and Todd Gurley will run free like a young colt, helping the Dawgs win this rodeo. -Phillip Heilman LSU (+3) will be drinking mint Picks Column SITE: COMMONWEALTH STADIUM (cap. 67,606) KICKOFF: 7 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: ESPNU / 850 AM SEE PICKSS, pP AGE 15 Matt Riva / AAlligator SS taffDante Fowler Jr. gestures to the crowd during Floridas 31-17 victory against Tennessee on Saturday in Fowler hoping to build on strong showing SSOccCCErR MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoIn Savannah Jordan, the Gators trust. When it comes to putting a powerhouse forward against Mississippi (8-1-1, 1-0 Southeastern Conference), Jordan will give Florida (7-1-1, 1-0 SEC) more than offensive talent at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium at 8 p.m. Jordans strength in making high-line tackles will be important in limiting Ole Miss senior forwards Rafaelle Souza and Mandy McCalla, who each scored 13 goals scored and accumulated 33 points to lead the SEC last season. Coach Becky Burleigh said Ole Miss tiple shot opportunities. Theyre as good as people well see the rest of the year, Burleigh said. We have to make sure we know what were doing against those two players. Souza has been dynamic this season. Her total of 11 goals ties her with two others for the most in the nation in 2013. McCalla has seven goals and three assists this season. Jordan, the SEC Freshman of the Week, is one goal shy of Souza after notching her ninth and 10th of the season during Floridas 3-0 victory against Alabama on Sept. 20. The freshman forward said the Gators need to continue the style of play that has proven to be effective when Florida faces Ole Miss. We just need to stay focused, Jordan said. Especially on away trips, its hard to play at other teams facilities with all the fans against you and the teams against you. Ole Miss has momentum coming off a four-game win streak. The Rebels have won four consecutive home matches. Were the type of team to thrive off a hostile environment, freshman Liz Slattery said.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013Kan Li / Alligator StaffTaylor Brauneis reacts to a play during Floridas three-set victory against Florida State on Sept. 17 in the OConnell Center. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer@jczuprynOn Wednesday afternoon in the Lemerand Center gym, Dave Boos was invested in just one person: Nikki ORourke. Wheres your angle? UFs associate head coach asked before serving another ball across the net. To the right, the sophomore defensive specialist yelled back, moving her intertwined hands and locked arms a few inches up, ready to practice her serve receive. In preparation for No. 3 Floridas (11-1) matchup with Mississippi State (9-5) tonight at 8 and Sundays game against Ole Miss (10-3) at 2:30 p.m., Boos, the Gators defensive coach, has been working one-on-one with more players to solidify the medefense. The defense that we run is a very advanced tactical system, but it cant be done at a high level until the players have the technical skills, coach Mary Wise said. And so the one-on-one that Dave does ... gives them that training to really advance their skill set. Wise added that her four defensive specialists, who are responsible for passing the ball to setter Taylor Brauneis and digging any attacks that land their way, have improved their performances each time Boos picked apart their game in practice. Taylor Unroe, who anchors the backcourt as a third-year libero, said the attention to detail by Boos especially in the passing game is the difference between a team trying to just survive and a team driving to win. Its not like algebra, she joked. You learn algebra once and then you never use it again. These skills are something that we actually do every single day. A foot here or an arm here or an angle here is actually something that will determine if you get a good pass or a bad pass. The ability to deliver a consistent pass from Unroe to Brauneis has been stressed after nearly every match by Wise, who said the Gators cannot make any progress on the court without an effective With Floridas match against an MSU squad that returns just neis said communication, along with Boos hands-on coaching, will help the passing game adjust against the new-look Bulldogs. Me and Taylor talk after every point, Brauneis said. We talk about her pass and if its good, if it needs to be higher (or) if it needs to be lower. With (Unroes) balls to the middle, which is what we need to do. Unroe said MSU provides the perfect challenge for Floridas passing strategy because the Bulldogs can keep a ball alive long enough to break the Gators out of their system. Sometimes, even if youre passing well, if someone just keeps the ball in play over and over and over again, sometimes to keep going on those passing runs, she said. dence in his defensive specialists to limit MSUs scoring attack and, in turn, provide Brauneis opportunities to set up the offense for potential attacks. That whole defensive crew that we have, any of them back there can be the highlight of the night, Boos said. Any of them can have the big night.Gators working to solidify defense These skills are something that we actually do every single day.

GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandWith the Wisconsin adidas Invitational looming, Florida is looking to determine the top seven runners who will compete on Oct. 19 in Madison. the men, who are running at the Florida Runners Invitational being held in Titusville today. Were going to give our top guys a chance to rest and train through this weekend, coach Paul Spangler said. We have the big Wisconsin meet coming up. Were going to take a small group of guys (to Titusville) and give them an opportunity to race a 5K, which is something we dont normally get an opportunity to race. The meet will help Spangler determine who will round out his top seven. According to Spangler, Floridas top four is effectively set with Jimmy Clark, Mark Parrish, Eddie Garcia and J.L. this years Mountain Dew Invitational. score Spangler said. [Miranda] ran great. With the top four set, three spots are left for 10 runners. All we need is one guy to really step it up, want to be as close to our fourth as possible. The depth of the mens team is a luxury Spangler appreciates. With many athletes competing at a high level, hoping to earn a spot at the heralded Wisconsin meet, motivation is not an issue. surplus of athletes. You dont want to have to (athletes) on any given day and have one step up. While the men have plenty of talent, the womens team is suffering from a lack of eligible runners. Injuries and sickness have ravaged the squad, with Shelby Hayes and Stephanie Strasser out since the season opener at Western Carolina. Whereas the men are healthy, the women are a little banged up and sick, so (this break) will give the women a chance to recover and be ready to race in a couple of weeks, Spangler said. The womens auditions for Wisconsin will be held at the Disney Cross Country Classic in Orlando, one week before Wisconsin. Spangler, along with the rest of the team, hopes to have both Strasser and Hayes back by then. Steph and Shelby: possibly, Spangler said when asked if Strasser and Hayes will run at the Disney Classic. We have a couple weeks to look at where theyre at physically. Both of them are sick and a little banged up. Fortunately for the women, they have another two weeks to recuperate. For the time being, its the mens turn. Today, all else. If one of those guys can get within 20 seconds of our fourth runner, well be alright, he said.Florida using meet as auditionWOMENsS TENNIsS ERICA A. HERNANDEZAlligator Writer@EricaAlyssaThe Gators are gearing up to make their longest trip of the season. The UF womens tennis team will journey almost 2,500 miles eight-day ITA All-American 2013 Riviera Classic. what we have, right? coach Roland Thornqvist said. Because the best players in the country will be there. And its at the Riviera Country Club, what more can you ask? So if you cant perform there, you know youre having issues. The Riviera Classic pre-qualifying rounds begin Saturday and end days of rest. Because she has already secured a spot in the main draw, she will not hit the court until Thursday. Belinda Woolcock, the only freshman competing for UF at Riviera, will begin play on Day 1 in the pre-qualifying rounds. Seniors Alexandra Cercone and Olivia Janowicz, along with sophomore Brianna Morgan, will all start their tournaments in the qualifying rounds on Tuesday. In doubles, Oyen and Woolcock, who captured the Duke Fab Four double tournament championship gether, will start off in the qualifying round, too. Associate head coach Dave Balogh, who has been at UF for 14 years, has led the teams Rivera Tennis Club outing for the past 13 years. During that time, Balogh has coached seven AllAmerican championship singles and doubles titles the most recent being Lauren Embrees singles championship title last year. As long as you go into it knowing this is going to be tough you have a better chance of handling it the right way, Balogh said. He has stressed mental and physical toughness going into the 10-day outing. Balogh expects battles on the court since the Gators will be up against the top players in the nation. You kind of see where youre at with the big kids, Balogh said. We play some smaller tournaments here and there to get ready, but this is it.UF begins trip to CaliforniaOOyen UF Cross Country

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 MENS TEAM HAS 11 ALL-AMERICANS. LOGAN MCGUIREAlligator Writer@loganjmcguireFlorida will begin its swimming and diving season today in the OConnell Center at 10 a.m. at the Pinch A Penny All Florida Invitational. The meet will run through the weekend with prelims starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday This meet is unique because you have a lot of the Florida swimmers and divers together, coach Gregg Troy said. There are a lot of athletes that were recruited by all of the schools, so they all know one another. The mens team returns 11 of the 13 AllAmericans from last season and the entire NCAA champion 800-yard freestyle relay team, which is composed of redshirt senior Sebastien Rousseau, sophomore Pawel Werner, senior Marcin Cieslak and junior Dan Wallace. Coming off her second NCAA title in vidual medley, Elizabeth Beisel headlines the womens team. The invitational is unique because of the amount of teams competing. Its a different format, Troy said. No matter how well we swim, only three people We may be in a situation where we have six or seven people that could have scored, Gators begin season today at home at 10 a.m.Each week, two alligatorSports columnists will debate the biggest looming matchup in college football. Today, Adam Pincus and Joe Morgan preview No. 6 LSUs showdown against No. 9 Georgia in Athens, Ga., on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. Adam: This is a game between two of the Southeastern Conferences best teams. LSU, a much healthier version of Florida, visits Georgia, which has the best offense in the SEC not led by Johnny Football. Itll be an upset of sorts for LSU with Georgia favored by three points. The over-under is 61.5 points. I expect 20 Les Miles grass-tastes, two Zach Mettenberger touchdowns and a dominating performance from LSUs running backs led by sophomore Jeremy Hill and his 117 yards per game. Plus, Im a huge fan of Cajun food. What do they even eat in Georgia? I thought Georgians were always busy choking in big games. Peach State native Joe Morgan should be able to answer this. Joe: Well, Pincus, Miami guys like you are never around to see those chokes. Or the rallies. Yall cant be bothered to stay until the end. Just ask Ray Allen. In this battle of Clemsons SEC victims, Georgia will defeat LSU on Saturday Between the Hedges. Why? Because of what you said the Bulldogs have the best offense in the SEC not quarterbacked by Johnny Manziel. Look no further than Georgias own signal-caller Aaron Murray. He ranks fourth nationally with a 201.78 passer per game and sixth with a 72 percent completion rate. Even an elite defense like LSU will struggle to slow down a quarterback this experienced and this precise, especially on his home turf. And if this one devolves into a shootout, I fully expect Murray to outgun Mettenberger. Adam: This should be a heck of a ballgame. College GameDay will emanate from the site of an LSU game for the 11th straight season. I wouldnt mind making a pit stop in Athens before heading to Lexington, Ky., for the barn burner that will be No. 20 Florida against Kentucky. Stat of the week for these two teams: LSU is 50-0 under Les Miles in his eight years at the school when holding opponents to fewer than 100 rushing yards while LSU eclipses the century mark on the ground. Mettenberger will conLSU doesnt have to beat the Dawgs through the air. Mettenberger just has to be in the same ballpark as Murray when its over. The key will be running the football. In accordance with the corny college football tradition of wearing the same color shirts, Mark Richt called for a redout at Sanford Stadium on Saturday. Cmon Richt. How stupid can you guys be? Red just draws more attention to yourself. The LSU defensive line, led by Anthony Johnson, doesnt need any extra help. Joe: Pincus, only someone as bullheaded as you would be distracted by a bunch of red. I know. What a toro-bull joke, right? If you want to talk about the running game, Id like to introduce you to a man named Todd Gurley. Gurley is a workhorse who thrives between the tackles and also boasts good speed. He leads the SEC with 125.7 rushing yards on 21 carries per game. When Murray isnt throwing the ball, LSU defenders will be throwing themselves at Gurboat, UGA also has speedsters Keith Marshall and J.J. Green to carry the throwing and the Bulldogs solid stable of running backs, a Tigers defense that lost seven starters from last years unit true test in one of the most hostile road environments in college football. Miles before moving on to the grass at Sanford Stadium. Adam: This will test the young Tiplaying time. Thats third in the SEC. LSU will be up to the task. After a week in which college football took a Saturday off, this top-10 matchup will be a must watch. Both squads boast a complete team and could be meeting come December in Atlanta. My colleague Joe Morgan thinks Gurley and Co. will run the Tigers back to the Bayou. Im going sixth-ranked team in the country. Need I also mention Aaron Murrays 5-11 record against top-25 teams? It may be unfair to the former Plant quarterback, but theres a reason these Bulldogs cant win the big game. Joe: Granted, Murray and Richt have struggled in big games against ranked opponents. That was a huge hurdle for them coming into 2013 and losing at Clemson opening weekend did not help. But Saturday marks one hell of an opportunity. Georgias explosive offense faces a talented but young defense trying to get its feet wet in front of a crowd starved for another SEC championship. Meanwhile, a young Bulldogs defense in search of consistent playmakers has the chance to do some growing up by winning a statement game against a talented but stoppable Tigers offense. LSU will put up a great at the end of the day, the Bulldogs will have the Tigers crying, Uncle Verne!Who will win the LSU-Georgia matchup?THE RALLY Adam Pincustwitter: @adamDpincus Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan
