CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff Writercalcantara@alligator.orgTwo advertisements released by a kosher meal vendor during the Summer have sparked a legal dispute about UF Hillels tax exemption status in Alachua County. The issue focuses on Sababa UF restaurant, which sells kosher meals to students in a 1,416-square-foot area inside the center, located at 2020 W. University Ave. Hillel and the Alatax exempt. The meeting comes nearly a month after Yvonne Yegge, a recommendation to the countys Value Adjustment Board that tion for the space was invalid. During the Summer, Sababa released a Groupon discount and a television commercial advertising its Mediterranean and vegan food.

ALEX HARRIS and COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff cwright@alligator.orgThe Reitz Union breezeway echoed with cheers as a sea of Swamp Party supporters celebrated the partys near-sweep of Senate seats Wednesday night. Swamp Party dominated in the Fall 2013 Student Government elections, claiming 48 out of 50 seats. Students Party walked away with two seats: Murphree Area and District E. Swamp Party spokesman Joseph Michaels high hopes were met. We cant wait to prove all the voters right, he said. A total of 8,766 ballots were cast, falling behind last Falls turnout of 9,197 votes and the 10,048 votes in Spring 2013. In Fall elections, students vote based on where they live. Supervisor of Elections Justin Hoover announced the results to an excited crowd at about 9:40 p.m. The time of the announcement was changed from midnight after election codes were amended this Summer. The location of the announcement, which is usually outside of Orange & Brew, was relocated to the breezeway because of construction. A total of 511 votes were cast for District E, which includes any zip code outside of Gainesville. Students whose correct local address isnt registered with the UF Registrar are often mistakenly placed within this district. Last Fall, 1,806 votes were cast in District E, when several students were incorrectly registered. in the Fall 2011 elections. Overall, Hoover said he was more than happy with the strong turnout. leave the breezeway, Students Party members werent thrilled with the outcome.

They are the millennial generation or so a Pew Research Center study thats recently been in the news seems to indicate. As the generation of 18to 29-year-olds continues to grow, its dependence on social media continues to affect the workforce, according to the study, titled Millennials: A Portrait of Generation Next. When asked what makes their generation unique, millennial respondents top answers were technology use, and music and pop culture. Millennials use of technology can make their work ethic look different, said Edmund Kellerman, a UF organizational communications professor. In our generation, if business was slow, youd go and do something to improve the store. But these days, you have to go and Kellerman said. Technology is increasingly taking the place of face-to-face communication, a term called the interpersonal divide, said Diana Nagy, a communications studies professor at UF. There may be valid reason for the heavy technology use among millennials, though. One of the things we know about millennials is that they are the most stressed-out generation ever, Nagy said. dent at the UF Levin College of Law, said she agrees.

What we havent been talking about has a much broader scope and impact beyond our borders. A report released Monday with more than 800 authors and 50 editors from dozens of countries stated with 95 percent certainty that humans are responsible for our planets warming. The group that authorized the report, the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, issued similar reports in the past. In 2007, they were 90 percent sure human behavior was causing climate change, but in 2001, they were only 66 percent sure. Observations of temperature change and improved models have helped the IPCC illustrate humanitys impact on the world with greater certainty. Even if carbon emissions stopped tomorrow, we would still feel the effects of global warming for years even centuries to come. Despite clearer links to our effect on the environment, greater effects from natural disasters and melting glaciers, a March survey by the Pew Research Center found that only 69 percent of Americans thought there was solid evidence our planet was heating up. Even more disappointing an October 2012 survey found only 42 percent believe it is mostly because of human activity. We dont have time to play these political games anymore. Politics are shaped by mass media. As a journalist, I am hyper-aware of how the media is able to frame issues and how that framing shapes peoples opinion. So let me start with this: News media must stop giving attention to climate-change deniers. Journalism is a search for the truth. In that search for the truth, its important to get all sides of the issue. However, most credible evidence we have shows we are irreversibly damaging our planet. Every time an inch of column space goes to someone saying climate change isnt real, a hole is poked in that truth and makes true evidence less credible. Politicians, obviously, have an enormous say in the national debate. They dont have a say in what are facts, though. No politician denying climate change can be taken seriously. If we impeached Bill Clinton for lying about Monica Lewinsky, we should do a lot more to any and every politician lying about an issue that affects literally the entire planet. Theres an age-old saying, all the way back from elgot three pointing back at you. The ultimate responsiworst enemy, and we need to take responsibility. Do the small things: Turn off the lights when you leave a room, dont leave your phone charger plugged in and all that jazz. Sell your car and buy a bike. Stop buying food from factory farms that are large contributors to carbon emissions. Stop supporting politicians who favor ideology over climatology. We must hold our politicians accountable. We must hold the media accountable. We must hold ourselves accountable. More than any other time in history, were fueling our own demise, and its entirely stoppable. Just remember this is not a political issue like everyone seems to think it is. Facts are facts. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior. His column runs on Thursdays.Playing dirty: Conservative groups release icky adsJust in time for Halloween, conservative group Generation Opportunity released a terrifying pair of video ads aimed to scare college students into opting out of Obamacare. In the ads, a pretty, young woman presumably a member of the national health care exchanges visits a gynecologist. After changing into a gown and putting her feet into the examination tables stirrups, a creepy Uncle Sam stylized to look like a giant circus clown pops up between her legs, grinning like Pennywise and slowly easing a metal speculum open. Boys, dont think youre off the hook either: Another ad portrays a young guy curled up on an examination table in a docUncle Sam rises from behind the table, snapping on a rubber glove. Just like many of our other favorite horror movies, the GenGovernment-issued doctors wont be giving you your next pelvic or prostate exam. According to The New York Times editorial blog, people who stay with Obamacare arent given access to government-run health care just privately run insurance. And no one will be forced to undergo unwanted examinations, as purported by the ads. Signing up for an exchange isnt an act of political (or sexual) submission, Juliet Lapidos wrote in the blog post. Its just a way to get insurance if you dont have a job or your employer doesnt provide it. to ask intrusive questions about patients sex lives under the Affordable Care Act either, after a New York Post article claimed otherwise. [Obamacare] doesnt require any sex questions except for whether youre male or female. You might hear the words, Are you sexually active? from your doctor, but it wouldnt have anything to do with the health care law, PolitiFact stated. So Generation Opportunity, with its perfectly vague name and genuinely offensive meme-laden website, is perpetuating some serious lies about what Obamacare will entail for young people. According to Yahoo News, Generation Opportunity is pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into convincing college students to opt out of Obamacare, even though those who dont percent of their household income through the Internal Revenue Service. The organization plans to travel to colleges around the country and encourage students to sign pledges to opt out of Obamacare by posting up at tailgates to hand out pizza and branded beer koozies. Whether you take advantage of Obamacare or not is your choice, but Generation Opportunitys scare tactics and lies are unacceptable. Rest assured that a creepy Uncle Sam will not, as the ads would have you believe, be making a guest appearance at your next doctors visit. 52 TOTAL VOTES40% YES 60% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgWednesdays question: Did you vote in the Student Government elections?

See page 11.Days are Gone Follow the Avenue on Twitter: @alligatoravenue. CHABELI HERRERAThe jolly banjo-strumming gentlemen who graced Florida with a festival in September are taking a break from music. Mumford & Sons, a Grammy Award-winning folk rock band, through Rolling Stone after its last concert stop in Bonner Springs, Kan., promoting reigning Album of the Year, Babel. We just know were going to take a considerable amount of time off and just go back to hanging out and having no commitments or pressure or anything like that, keyboardist Ben Lovett told Rolling Stone. It feels like the last week of school right now. It seems the four Brits are tired from nonstop touring after the sucMore, in 2009. It has since been a haze of string lights, staples of their concerts, until their Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers this summer. Longtime fan Jordyn Schwersky, a 21-year-old UF journalism senior, was at the tours stop in St. Augustine on Sept. 14. She heard about the hiatus a week after seeing them perform live. whelming relief that I went to the they had been to Florida, so I jumped on that immediately, she said. Schwersky has been a fan since 2010 and recalls a month of her freshman year at college spent listening solely to Mumford. If they dont get back together Im just going to sit in a corner and cry for the rest of my life, Schwersky said. It would be devastating. She hopes the break will bring in a new perspective to their music and a different sound from their two very similar albums. Fan Alex Sanchez also hopes the break will make the band step back and bring a new sound to the table. I think the best work produced by artists is produced when they are not in the public eye, so I think itll be interesting to see that, said Sanchez, a 21-year-old UF journalism junior. The band hinted at the introduction of rap into their next album in an interview with Rolling Stone in February. Thats a far cry from banjos and keyboards. If rap comes out, Im gonna be a fan, Sanchez said. Im all about that. For now, though, we will have to wait. A tumultuous year for bassist Ted Dwane may be behind the reasoning for the hiatus. The band had to cancel three shows after Dwane underwent brain surgery to remove a blood clot. break, Dwane told Rolling Stone. Were going to have a little rest. GOOGLE HAS A NEW LOGO. LAUREN ADAMSONPersonally, I like things to have some depth. I will always prefer John Green to Ryan Lochte and a deep ocean to a kiddie pool. But apparently, tech companies like Google and Apple disagree. They are moving toward aesthetics that lack dimension. On Sept. 19, Google introduced a new logo. You may not have noticed it because the difference is subtle, but the colors are slightly muted, and the letters has revamped its logo since 2010, when its colors were brightened and some of its shading was removed. The recent update to the logo is joined with a redesign to Googles navigation bar. Instead of the black bar, Google has reorganized its platforms onto the same grid that is seen on the Android. pany said, Well be rolling out this update across most Google products over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out and let us know your thoughts. My thought is the look of Googles new logo is similar to that of Apples new iPhone. The iOS 7 software upgrade, which came out Sept. 18, launched shockingly different apps that sport less of a 3-D effect and a more basic color scheme. The design is playful almost like it came from a childs sketchbook. This movement toward more modern and simple shapes and companies design choices. However, not everyone is accepting of this direction. UF biology freshman Giovanna Sutherland, 18, said she liked the old Google logo better. She favored its shading and deeper colors. Some people dont see the difference to Googles search page. UF horticultural science junior Darius Warner, 20, said he remembers someone telling him that the company changed its logo, but it looks the same to him. Large news is being made about think it is a little pointless sort of a publicity stunt. UF social media specialist Bruce Floyd said companies only change their logos slightly so they will still be recognized and associated with their brands. Google is doing just that. As Fast Company wrote, Google is now imbuing everything it does with the sort of effortless panache that the tech world once associated only with Apple.Jordyn Schwersky / AlligatorMumford & Sons performs at the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in St. Augustine on Sept. 14, a week before announcing its hiatus.


ALEXA VOLLANDAvenue WriterIf Joni Mitchell had a synthesizer, she could easily be the fourth sister of Haim. The highly anticipated debut album Days are Gone dropped Monday, and the three California Haim sisters live up to the hype. Days are Gone presents songs of falling in love, dealing with relationships and eventually letting go, in an edgy Im going to ombre my hair and only wear leather vests kind of way. Heavy on the drums and vocal harmonies, Danielle, Alana and Este Haim are a mix between Destinys Child and Fleetwood Mac. But the three twenty-somethings arent new to the music scene having been in a family band with their parents for years. Danielle Haim has played the drums on Jenny Lewis tour and guitar for the Strokes frontman, Julian Casablancas. Together, Haim has opened for Mumford & Sons and played Lollapalooza and the 2013 Glastonbury Festival. The pop rock, indie trio are all multi-instrumentalists who sing and write their own material. And do it all with great hair some people have it all. Days are Gone is a fulllength album, including their three songs Forever, Falling and Go Slow from 2012 EP Forever. The album has a very distinctive formula: repetitive drum beats plus catchy choruses, a recurring theme in each song. Haims strength isnt in its vocals, though its harmonies make it sound easy. The sisters have a clear gimmick: reimagining the classics and drawing on inspirations to create their unique sound. You can hear Joni Mitchell in Honey & I, a little early Vampire Weekend in Forever and some TLC in the sassy girl power anthem My Song 5. Still, theyve managed to keep the album cohesive. As far as lyrics go, The Wire is the strongest song on the album. With a verse saying, Id give it all away just to hear you say that /Well I know, I know, I know I know that youre gonna be OK anyway, this song puts every Taylor Swift breakup song to shame. Halfway through the album, the easy-going, raw sound switches to a more auto-tuned 90s vibe with Days are Gone and My Song 5. Though the two songs are potential hits in the making, they also feel a little out of place compared to the rest of the tracks. bum sounds like, I am excited to see what comes next. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2013 Be a part of something BIG GIVE B LOOD.Over 1,000 people gathered to form one of needs just as many donors per week to meet call 888.795.2707 Photo by Photography 35 Alexa Volland / Alligator StaffAlana Haim (left), Danielle Haim (center) and Este Haim (right) of Haim perform at Lollapalooza in August in Chicagos Grant Park to promote their new album Days are Gone, which was released Sept. 30. music

STEVEN KATONAAvenue WriterIts dusk. The suns orange glow barely peeks over the bogs of the Everglades as Naomi Fisher adjusts her camera. For the past two days, she has traveled to the swamps of the Anhinga Trail, and for a their bodies into a yoga pose, half-submerged in muddy marsh water. Through her lens, she watches the water around the gators tremble as they throat a deep growl. The sound etches shapes and patterns into the waters surface, and the rumble is so loud it vibrates her chest like the bass in a car stereo system. This was one of many interactions that Fisher witnessed while working on her most recent project, Lay of the Land. She has come full circle as her work will be displayed Friday in UFs University Gallery through Nov. 15, among Gators once again. A professional artist from Miami, Fisher has been exhibiting art nationally and internationally since 1999. Nature has been a part of her consciousness since she was a child traveling with her father, who is a tropical botanist, and collecting plants. One of her fathers closest friends was a botanical illustrator who noticed Fisher loved to draw and encouraged her to keep doing it. I feel really fortunate to have had her as a role model growing up, but that also allowed me to enter art through a path that involved nature, Fisher said. Since then, her photography, paintings and video have been displayed all over the world, in countries like Germany, Italy and Ukraine. But now, in the University Gallery, she is displaying photography and video she took while spending a month in the Everglades. marshes, sometimes alone, Fisher said, I did a lot of hiking, just wandering around with my camera and video camera. In the video, ashes cover the ground in an area that used to be farmland called Hole-inthe-Donut, deep inside the Everglades, Fisher said. Before a controlled burn turned thriving plants to soot, a group of people brought soil and fertilizer into the swamp to cultivate the land for agriculture. This completely changed the ecology after invasive species started to grow out of seeds that were in the soil, pushing native plants out. lem by pulling out every single plant there even the good ones pulling out all of the soil and sweeping the dirt out until there is nothing but bedrock, Fisher said. Then they What she realized was how extreme transformation happens in nature, which became the central theme for the video. Its so interesting how things can shift from one day to the next, even if youre on the same trail, she said. That video will be projected inside the University Gallery and will accompany her photography and Native American artifacts borrowed from the Florida Museum of Natural History. Director of University Galleries Amy Vigilante said she is excited to display Fishers work at UF. I love it. I saw one of her videos at the Vizcaya in Miami, and it was fantastic, Vigilante said. Digital media is very in right now, so this is a really current show. Twenty-one-year-old UF sculpture senior Marla Rosen said art students around campus are also excited to see Fishers exhibition because shes a successful artist who works interdisciplinarily, which means she doesnt focus on one medium in a show. Rosen interned with Fisher two summers ago in Miami and helped set up Lay of the Land in the University Gallery. Creating a large-scale installation is a very interesting way of working, Rosen said, and being interdisciplinary is a way of working that a lot of artists are moving toward. During the opening reception Friday, Fisher hopes the exhibition engages the audience and compels them to ask questions. The theme of the show is a part of her ongoing investigation into how humans deal with nature. For me, its taking this sort of extreme transformation that happened in nature and thinking about that in terms of changes in your own life, Fisher said.

New exhibit explores human relationships with nature BOBBY DESMONDAvenue Writer the vampire craze in American media hit its peak and slowly started to back off into the shadows. Yet the vampire craze appears, like its mythical subjects, to be undead. The Vampire Diaries is season on the CW at 8 p.m. The shows premiere picks up a few months after the The episode, titled I Know What You Did Last Summer, promises new characters, Elena/Damon romance and a desperate plea from the now-human Katherine. Tori Davis, a 19-year-old telecommunication senior and College Advisory Board member of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, is excited miss the Original family. Luckily, the characters will star in their own spin-off The Originals on the CW at 9 p.m. I am eager to see more about the Original familys backstory and history in New Orleans, Davis said. But not looking forward to the plot twist about Klaus and Hayleys baby. The spin-off aired a pilot episode in April, but the episode has been completely reworked for tonights series premiere. The new version focuses on why Elijah, not Klaus, returns to New Orleans a move that will allow people who have never seen an episode of The Vampire Diaries to watch the spin-off without being confused. But if youre still skeptical about the immortality of the vampire craze, there is a second new vampire show in the fall lineup. Jonathan Rhys Meyers will star in NBCs upcoming series Dracula, premiering Oct. 25. As long as shows like TVD, The Originals and Dracula are around, they will keep the vampire trend alive. Each vampire show has its own spin on vampirism, so there is enough diversity to keep them popular, Davis said. The end doesnt seem near for The Vampire Diaries or its star, Ian Somerhalder. In 2010, the actor launched the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which aims to empower young adults to take a stand on global issues and to become a force for positive change. If students would like to get involved in the Ian Somerhalder Foundation College Division, Davis advises them to visit college and to follow the organization on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by searching for ISF College.Television shows about vampires: Ending or immortal?

Dear Friend, Gainesville is the wrong town to expect people to not know who you are, where you work and who youve boned. You dont need as many friends as you think you do. Just imagine having a bunch of d**khead friends who kind of suck if you hang out with them for too long. Maybe something worse could happen theyd turn into real friends, and youd be stuck with more people who know too much about you! Boo-hoo. Just hang out with the people you like and dont overthink these weird, mythical extras you want in your life. Dear Mediocre Advice, Ive been in Gainesville for about two years group of friends. I have a few close friends, but sometimes I dont want someone who knows me so extremely up close and personal. Help? TV blood suckers peak art

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Donovan speaks on injury While speaking at the Jimmy V. Classic Gala, UF coach Billy Donovan said forward Will Yeguete (knee) has not been cleared to practice.Can Maryland upset Florida State on Saturday? Adam Pincus and Landon Watnick debate on page 16. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanArkansas running back Alex Collins has started his college career so impressively that even he is surprised. Collins, a freshman from Fort LauConference running back to amass at least 100 rushing yards in each of his season. Adrian Peterson was the last tailback from any conference to accomplish the feat, doing so while playing at Oklahoma in 2004. I have surprised myself, Collins told Arkansas reporters last week. I dont make or set goals of having this amount of yards. I just come to play and do whatever my coach needs me to do and just try and do it to perfection. Collins has come close to perfection. The 5-foot-11, 206-pounder totaled his fourth 100-yard game of the season by accumulating 116 yards on 14 carries during his SEC debut, a 45-33 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday. Through four games, Collins is second in the conference behind South Carolina running back Mike Davis with 119.4 rushing yards per game. Collins and change-of-pace tailback Jonathan Williams have spearheaded an Arkansas ground game that ranks second in the SEC, averaging 237 rushing yards per game. Hes a complete back, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. His numbers speak for themselves what hes been able to do already this year. Hes a big challenge. Collins will be in for his biggest challenge of the season when facing the No. 18 Gators on Saturday at 7 p.m. in Florida boasts the nations best rushing defense, holding opponents to a meager 53.5 yards on the ground per game. Only one of the four defenses No. 4 Rutgers Collins has faced to start the season has ranked higher than 80th in the country in rushing defense. He is an outstanding player, coach Will Muschamp said. Alex is second in our league in rushing. That tells you a lot about his maturity and being able to step in and contribute that quickly. Added defensive tackle Damien Jacobs: They going to line up there and run it there, and they going to run it until you stop them. Weve got to step it up this week. Its going to be fun. Much like Miami running back Duke Johnson who Florida limited to just 59 yards on 21 carries during the Hurricanes 21-16 win against the Gators on Sept. 7 Collins spurned Muschamp and the Gators for an opportunity to play elsewhere. South Plantation High, Collins rushed for 3,186 yards and 42 touchdowns. rated him a four-star prospect and the No. 13 running back in the Class of 2013. However, with Kelvin Taylor and Adam Lane already planning to attend Florida, Collins committed to Miami Bret Bielemas biggest catch in his debut recruiting class. Florida was never a serious destination for one of the states top-ranked high school players. There are so many good players in our state, you cant sign them all, Muschamp said. Hes a heck of a football player, but hes a great young man.AP photo Freshman running back to test Gators JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer @joe_morgan Linebacker Michael Taylor wears his heart on his sleeve. One of his sleeves read, U 2 Nana, during Floridas 24-7 victory against Kentucky on Saturday night at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky. He was honoring his late grandmother and injured teammates Dominique Easley and Andre Debose. My grandma passed last year so I always dedicate something on my body to her every game, Taylor said. I usually try to put my fallen soldiers on me somewhere. Taylor made his three soldiers proud against the Wildcats, recording eight tackles, including one for loss in the victory. The performance upped his tackle total to 20, which is tied for second among Gators. Taylor credited his success to better understanding Floridas defensive system. When the opportunity arises, youve got to take advantage of it, Taylor said. So every opportunity I get, Im just going to take advantage of it. Taylor has made his coaches proud, too. Florida promoted Taylor to co-starter status at both Mike and Will linebacker in this weeks depth chart. Last weeks release listed him as the backup at Mike behind sophomore Antonio Morrison. Mike plays with a certain style, a style that we like, that we embrace on defense, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. He epitomizes what we want to be. Hes a tough, physical guy. He plays really hard. And I think youve seen that on the More playing time means more chances for Taylor to talk, but not just through his play or on and he lets the opposition know. You guys couldnt handle that so I cant really say that in here, Taylor said when asked what he says to the other team. If yall mic me up, you Freshman impressing opposition: Freshman cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III is on Arkansas coach Bret Bielemas radar. Hes everything you want in the position, Bielema said during Wednesdays SEC Coaches aggressive. Hargreaves was named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week on Monday after Taylor enjoying role increase for Florida defense Hes a heck of a football player, but hes a great young man.UF coach UF Fo otball SEE NOTES, PA GE 16QuotableHe was sitting in the back behind me, and I kept my eye on him.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2013 Freshman cornerback proving critical to success of UF secondary he recorded his third interception in Floridas 24-7 win against Kentucky at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky. Hargreaves has also recorded seven tackles and his four pass breakups are tied with Jabari Gorman for the team lead. He responds really well, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said of Hargreaves. The stage is not too big for him. He goes out there and handles his business. The emergence of Hargreaves has helped Floridas secondary thrive despite the absence of Marcus Roberson (sprained knee) and Loucheiz Purifoys struggles to achieve consistency. How despite his early success has impressed Durkin as well as fellow defensive back Jaylen Watkins. Hes a very humble kid, Watkins said of Hargreaves. Hes one of the most humble people Ive ever met. Linebacker hates bears: Taylor was happy he did not receive an invitation to offensive coordinator Brent Peases pregame nature walk with Floridas quarterbacks on Saturday in Lexington, Ky. We aint taking no risk of running into any bears, Taylor said of Floridas defense. Were good. Taylor is keen on avoiding bears. Sharing the same side of the ball with defensive tackle Darious Bear Cummings is good enough for him. I wouldnt have went on a nature walk somewhere I dont know, Taylor said. NOTES, from page 15THE RALLYEach week, two alligatorSports columnists will debate the biggest looming matchup in college football. Today, Adam Pincus and Landon Watnick preview No. 8 Florida States home matchup against No. 25 Maryland in Tallahassee on Saturday at noon on ESPN. Adam: Florida State, a 16-point favorite, will continue its dominance against a Maryland team not quite yet ready to hang with the nations elite in another beatdown at Doak Campbell Stadium. The Seminoles have won 21 of 23 in this series and all 11 games played in Tallahassee. Although third-year coach Randy Edsall month of this season, his team will get a rude awakening come Saturday. Theres just too For every playmaker the Terrapins have, the Seminoles have three to match. If this were on the basketball court, Id give Maryland a chance. Unfortunately for the school just a subway ride away from Washington, D.C., the Seminoles will shut down the Terrapins and further their quest for an elusive Atlantic Coast Conference title. Landon: Unlike our government, Maryland might actually be good this year. The 4-0 Terrapins are off to their best start since 2001 and have already equaled their win total from last season. In his third year on the job, Edsall has turned the ship around. What FBSs biggest surprises. Maryland might have played two cupcakes in FIU and Old Dominion to kick off 2013, but it clobbered West Virginia 37-0 on Sept. 21 for its knocked off then-No. 11 Oklahoma State 30-21 last weekend. The Seminoles always seems to lose to some unranked ACC opponent and kill its national title hopes early. Florida State lost to Wake Forest in 2011 and North Carolina State of the season.). The Terrapins are coming off a bye week and should be ripe to pull off the road upset. Adam: Have you seen Jameis Winston this year? The kid is the real deal. E.J. Manuel, the turnover machine, never got Florida State over the hump. That should change this season with a dynamic rushing atSure, FSU almost ruined its season against Steve Addazios Boston College to the chagrin of Florida fans everywhere. As an aside, whats better: Florida State with an embarrassing loss or Addazio winning? If the Gators continue to win, Addazios legacy in Gainesville will be the dive play and Tyler Murphy. As Florida still sively, Florida State knows who it is a with a dual-threat quarterback at the helm. Winston averages 262 yards and as starter. The running back combination of Devonta Freeman, Karlos Williams and James Wilder Jr. gives FSU nearly 180 yards on the ground a game. Take this stat: The Seminoles are second in the FBS to Baylor with 8.6 yards per play and have 18 touchdown drives that have been three minutes or less. These guys score and score often. Maryland has to get to at least 40 and I just dont see it. Landon: Winston has been spectacular so far this year, but Maryland signal-caller C.J. Brown has fallen under the radar a bit and also deserves some attention. After missing last season with a torn ACL, Brown has started off 2013 on a tear. Through four games, he has 13 touchdowns (seven passing and six rushing) to only one interception. On top of that, he averages 260.8 passing yards per game. Winston may be better than Brown, but it isnt a far cry to say that Brown is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the ACC. Adam: I like to deal in certainties. You started off by saying Maryland might actually be good this year. Heres what we know about them: Maryland is an up-and-coming football team who knocked off West Virginia. Thats all we know. There isnt much we know about Florida State, except that this is a talented squad with Maryland in its rear-view mirror. You cant tell me the Terrapins have more talent, and if so get off that angel dust. Nothing you say about Marylands defense 2013, Im taking the more talented team in this game. Jimbo Fisher will have his boys ready. The always aptly-dressed Terrapins claim to yet. Landon: Honestly, Im not certain how either team will fare as the season progresses. But I am certain that Marylands defense is really good. The Terrapins are third in the conference in turnover margin at plus-5 after forcing six against West Virginia. Marylands 17 sacks are tied for the nations best count, and its eight picks are tied for eighth most in the country. In addition, the Terrapins are third in the country in scoring defense, allowing only 10.3 points per game. Thats fewer points allowed than Florida (12.8). To put it in greater perspective, both Maryland and UF have faced season. Marylands defense isnt pansy by any means. This team will give FSU problems Saturday.Who will win the Florida State-Maryland matchup on Saturday? Adam Pincustwitter: @adamDpincus Landon Watnicktwitter: @landonwatnick Taylor
