Despite the loss, the Gators can still win the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer@joe_morganBATON ROUGE, La. Florida fell back to earth on Saturday. Fortunately for the Gators, Atlanta is of this world. No. 10 LSU ended the Tyler Murphy honeymoon with a 17-6 victory against No. 17 UF on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. Despite another loss during which the offense did too little and the defense was asked to do too much, the Gators season is far from over. In fact, it begins next Saturday. The road to the Southeastern Conference Championship Game now goes through Faurot Field, home of undefeated SEC East leader Missouri. We still have everything on the table as far as Atlanta is concerned, coach Will Muschamp said. We need to take care of the SEC East. It is wide open, and it is all in our hands. Floridas season may hinge on a tangle with another group of Tigers, but Saturday hurt. In a statement game at the seasons midway point, the Gators crumbled in the same kind of three-yards-and-acloud-of-dust contest that was its bread and butter in 2012. The style brought UF within one game of Atlanta last season. But the Gators (4-2, 3-1 SEC) failed to impose their will on Saturday, and it proved costly. LSU (6-1, 3-1 SEC) outmanned, outgunned and outmuscled Florida in the trenches. In a battle of stingy defensive units, the Tigers held stronger. In short, LSU stole Floridas identity. Les Miles won The Muschamp Way. We didnt win enough on the line of scrimmage, Muschamp said. Senior defensive tackle Damien Jacobs added: They kind of beat us at our own game.STILL IN THE HUNTSEC East remains openSEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 13 ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgChomsky is coming. After much debate, Noam Chomsky, a prominent professor and political activist, will speak at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts Tuesday at 8 p.m. at an event hosted by the Civic Media Center.

We approached him 10 years ago and brought him in for our 10th anniversary, and now were bringing him back a couple days before our 20th anniversary. On his last visit, more than 6,000 people crammed into the Stephen C. OConnell Center to hear the renowned MIT professor speak about language and politics, he said.

The registrys University Search database, which launched last week, collects information on more than 60,000 registered offenders statewide and lists those who attend or work at private or public colleges and universities. UF doesnt have any offenders enrolled or working at any of its three campuses listed in the database. At SFC, one offender is listed as enrolled at the colleges Northwest Campus off Northwest 83rd Street.

KRISTAN WIGGINS MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 A Shot at Health HIS FAMILY ALSO DEBUTED CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff Writercalcantara@alligator.orgAbout 80 people gathered Saturday at the University Auditorium for a memorial service for Christian Aguilar, where UF representatives awarded him a posthumous degree and his family announced the release of a new search-and-rescue app. The service marked a year since the 18-year-old UF biomedical engineering freshman from Miami was found dead in Levy County after he had been missing for almost a month. Carlos and Claudia Aguilar, Christians parents, thanked the UF, Gainesville and Miami communities for their help during the search. It was a miracle we found him, Carlos Aguilar, 45, said. The family also praised local search and Pedro Bravo investigation. Bravo, a 19-year-old former Santa Fe College student, is accused of killing Christian and faces multiple felony charges. Dave Kratzer, vice president for student affairs, addressed the audience and Aguilar family members on behalf of UF President Bernie Machen. Although Christian was a student at UF here for a very short time, he said, we know Christians love of life extended to all of his passions. Student Body Vice President Joselyn Rivas praised UF volunteers for their involvement in the search. Angela Lindner, associate dean of the College of Engineering, said Christians life and death created a bond in the community. Christian still matters here, she said, as a tangible symbol of the permanent bond we have with Christian and his family. Representatives from the engineering college and UFs Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers presented the Aguilar family with an In Memoriam biomedical engineering degree, which Lindner said deceased UF student. Gainesville Police Chief Tony Jones, speaking for the two dozen law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation, said he and the ily guidance as Bravos case moves to trial. as you maneuver through the next phase, he said. The Aguilar family also announced the release of the Christian Aguilar Child Alert application. The app, developed by the Missing Children Global Network, allows users to receive alerts about missing people and submit anonymous tips to police. The whole idea is to help law enforcement (and) try to be their eyes in our communities, said Ricardo Barredo, a representative of the MCGN Advisory Board. Jonathan Moriarty, a 20-year-old UF electrical engineering sophomore, met Christian when they attended Preview last summer. He said going to Saturdays service was I dont want to face that reality that Im not going to bump into him on the sidewalk anymore, he said.UF awards posthumous degree to Christian Aguilar at serviceCAMPUS SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Staff Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgSixteen proposals have been chosen for the funding after a month-long selection process. Research into big data takes the lions UF Provost Joe Glover said more than 40 proposals were gathered from deans around campus. A committee of distinguished professors reviewed the proposals with UF President Bernie Machen, who eventually decided on the 16 that would receive funds from preeminence. important in the next 10 to 20 years, Glover said. of proposals, he said. The committee hasnt reached a conclusion on how to allocate the remainder. He said the funds will be released to UF this Fall after he and president Machen present their plans to the Board of Governors in November, but the deans of UFs colleges have already put their plans for the funds in motion. Glover said he expects 75 to 100 new faculty members from preeminence funding, with the bulk of them on the tenure track. No professors have been chosen yet, but the search for new hires has already begun. He said although the funds are going into research, the faculty brought on from new hires will bolster UFs academics. We expect all the faculty we hire to be engaged in teaching as well, he said. Were bringing very good researchers who will bring their expertise into the classroom. He said big data describes the massive amounts of information created with all human the Higgs-Boson particle to large databases such as The storage, retrieval and analysis of all these data really require new techniques, he said. Charlotte Jung, a 19-year-old pre-pharmacy sophomore, said she wishes a portion of the money would go to improving meal plans on campus. I personally didnt buy a meal plan last year or this year because the food was below standards of what a human should be putting in their body, Jung said. She said the liberal arts colleges should also receive more funding, as their programs arent paid as much attention as majors such as engineering. Nathan Miles, a 21-year-old physics, math and astronomy senior, said he likes that the majority of the money is going into research because if it gives back new technologies, the university could easily make back its money. $15M in preeminence funding Aguilar that will be important in the next 10 to 20 years.UF provost


4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2013 ATTACKS WERE HUNG UNDER A TENT ON THE PLAZA OF THE AMERICAS. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff Writercwright@alligator.orgThe worst thing a Latino parent can have is a gay child. Those words still keep Gaby Larios from revealing her sexuality to her family. Pictures of expressionless faces holding dry-erase boards with LGBTQ attacks were on display at The Weight of Your Words, a celebration of National Coming Out Day presented by LGBT Affairs and Pride Student Union. Gays will ruin this country, You will go to hell, I cant love an abomination and 40 other attacks were hung under a large tent on the Plaza of the Americas on Friday. Students spanning the LGBTQ spectrum and transcending race and socioeconomic status were at the gallery Friday. Pictures were taken after Pride meetings and in the Rainbow Room of Peabody Hall. Students could also take their own pictures at the event. Larios, an 18-year-old womens studies and sociollesbian, noticed a trend in the exhibit: like in her own experience, many of the comments in the pictures were said by a family member. Family stops a lot of people from coming out, she said, because I guess they feel like they did a bad job raising us. Faculty and students of all backgrounds stopped by to snap pictures. Others struck a discussion about struggles in the LGBTQ community. Prides Internal Vice President Hiram Martinez-Cabrera said the event was modeled after Project Unbreakable, a project raising awareness of sexual abuse by victims displaying the quotes of their attackers. Weight of Your Words was Pride History Week. Its important to remember where we came from and the pressure we faced being raised, the 19-year-old UF public relations sophomore said. straight female, political science freshman Wendy Serra, 18, supported the event because the students in the pictures caught her attention. Being from the Hispanic community and hearing these things, it brings what they say to light, she said. It doesnt affect me, but it affects other people.Coming Out Day gallery caps off Pride History WeekAbout 400 sex offenders are registered in Alachua Countydatabase on the registrys website. State Sen. Eleanor Sobel (DHollywood) sponsored the bill. Sex offenders in our system of higher education are a harsh reality, Sobel said in a statement. Helping to provide Florthemselves about potential threats in their lives was a logical next step for me. Under the Florida Sexual Predators Act, anyone convicted of a sex crime must register with the state. He or she can be on lesser charges. An offenders name, picture, current address and charges are then made public through the registrys webmove and if they decide to enroll, work or volunteer at a college. The information is passed along to the state and school. In Alachua County, there are 409 registered sex offenders, according to FDLE data. Eleven are between the ages of 18 and 24. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes wrote in an email the university supports the database because of its transparency. This tool provides students, faculty and staff with information to help make them more aware of their surroundings, she said. Jennifer Klein, a UF instructor for the Sex Offenders class in the Department of Sociology and Criminology & Law, said she supports the database but doesnt think the information will stop parents from sending their children off to college. Weve been sending kids to schools for years, and sex offenders have been on campus, she said. Its just now you know they are there. Jamie Foote, a 22-year-old UF communication sciences and disorders junior, said the new database will help keep campus safety a priority. Its worth it if it means safety for students on campus, she said. REGISTrR Y, from page 1UFs ACCENT Speakers Bureau declined to host the event There had been some confusion over who would host the event, but ACCENT Speakers Bureau chairman Daniel Landesberg, a 21-year-old UF telecommunication senior, said it would not be hosted by his organization. We get so many great options every year; unfortunately, we cant bring every single option that is presented to us, he said. With Mr. Chomsky, the dates, times and locations just didnt work well for us. Instead, the fees for the event will be shouldered by the CMC, Czopek said. Its not so much even the lecture fee, he said. The main cost for us is the $6,000 were paying to rent the Phillips Center. The rental fee was paid for by one of the CMCs supporters and will be repaid through donations from other supporters and community groups, Czopek said. But students said theyre excited about the event, regardless of who hosts it. Natalie Amgot, a 22-year-old UF French and Chinese senior, said her interest in Chomsky began when she read a book about him her freshman year. I really like languages, and Noam Chomsky is a really big linguist, she said. I would really like to be a French linguist and a professor, so hes been a really great inspiration for me.

Created Equal, a group dedicated to starting conversations about abortion through the use of graphic pictures, will be displaying its exhibit from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The organization has brought the exhibit to campus in previous years. For some students, it is notorious for inducing tears or vomit. The collection includes pictures of dismembered fetuses. Madison Bellaire, a 19-year-old UF physics and mathematics sophomore, said she will avoid the area. I have issues with anti-abortion campaigns where the main goal is to cause disgust and guilt in others, she said. They make it harder on women who are trying to make an However, Mark Harrington, the executive director of Created Equal, said he believes in the medium for making a point. He called abortion a contemporary form of ageism, discrimination based on age. The biggest arguments will be that the preborn arent ... self-aware, therefore theyre not persons.

Vote or post a message at Banksyd be proud people hustle his workHes reached worldwide fame while preserving his anonymity, putting the spotlight on the underground street-art scene. litically charged, satirical work which he does incognito. Silhouette stencils accompanied by witty, but scathing, slogans critical of government and capitalism have shown up in cities all over the world for more than a decade. Some of his work has appeared in deliberately controversial spots from the Berlin Wall to Wall Street to the Israeli-Palestinian border wall. descript places such as a wall of a health clinic or the side of a convenience store. Its like the Mona Lisa being put on display in an Banksy piece. This month, New Yorkers have been on the lookout for the masked muralist and his city-wide project called In a hilarious and appropriately anti-establishment turn of events, a couple of New Yorkers are turning a buck by charging people for a glimpse of his latest work. They covered the illustration a beaver chewing on a broken parking sign with a cardboard box, allegedly charging $20 or the same value in pizza from fans. Despite not selling his work personally or having conventional museum exhibitions, the artist has gained by a high-end international auctioneer for over $200,000 in 2011. So, is $20 a pop really too much to ask? Social media alerts a-la a mob of camera-happy tourists to a tough Brooklyn neighborhood it would otherwise never venture into. The corner of Bradford and Pitkin became an attraction instantly, but what do the people who live in the neighborhood get out of it? stagram, not much. Its easy to call these guys bamboozling opportunistic nuisances. I empathize with you, New York City art lovers. The struggle is real. But the truth is, these guys are business-savvy entrepreneurs. In fact, New York City was built on go-getters who made capitalism work to their advantage. Banksy would be proud. I would argue theyre not the only ones exploiting the opportunity. cation in this case, can be an exploitation of the people who live there if it has no intention of lifting up the original residents. Making a poor neighborhood a center of art and culture for a new socioeconomic class is an eviction in its own right. But its important to consider why these hustlers are indeed hustling every day.

Fridays question: Have you been affected by the shutdown?99 TOTAL VOTES40% YES 60% NOMe(rlot) Generation:Millenials extreme wine consumptionI mention one interesting characteristic of our often-scolded generation: Were turning the wine industry over on its head. According to Fox Business, millenials drink more wine than previous generations when they turn 21. Wine distributors and advertisers are noticing, too. has been marketed to older generations and came with a huge pretense, said Melissa Saunders, owner of wine importer Communal Brands. But this generation is blowing all of that out of the water. They dont care about the pretentiousness of a wine, they want something that is authentic and speaks to Millennials, according to Ronan Stafford, a Canadian Wine Report analyst, drank 25.7 percent of wine by the volume in 2012 higher than the global average of 20.6 percent. Consumers of wine, however, are still overwhelmingly middleaged and elderly: 44.1 percent of 2012 wine consumption in the U.S. was by men and women aged 55 and older. However, as the article noted, lets face it: Baby boomers are getting old, and theyre not going to live forever. Now that wine producers are noticing the growing popularity of vino among the young folks, market research has been consuppliers can cater to the changing needs of consumers. Millennials dont care about showing off expensive, rare value on the story behind the wine, how its packaged, where they found it and the unique blend its comprised of or region its from. lissa Saunders, owner of wine importer Communal Brands, of information that have a cool design that is authentic and appeals to people so they dont look like everything else on options available at Trader Joes, it doesnt seem like groundbreaking news: Young people want a bottle of wine thats low-priced but not cheap-tasting, packaged with a cool label and eco-friendly bottle and has a rich history. We no longer think of wine as a status symbol. Its much Two-Buck Chuck than a $100 bottle of Chteau Montrose cabernet sauvignon. And now, more than ever, we have a middle ground: Trader Joes wine is neither low-quality boxed drugstore wine nor is it extravagant and overpriced. For all the knocking that millennials get for being lazy, entitled and narcissistic, the spike in wine consumption and the collective desires of younger wine buyers says a lot about the evolution of food culture.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 What I am about to say might not win me any friends at the Alligator, but I must be frank: The current state of American journalism is doing its part to destroy American democracy. It sounds like the ranting of a raving lunatic, but bear with me. My diatribe might convince you. The proliferation of webbased journalism coupled with the desperate need for cable news to instantly report everything typically with terrible results to the dying newspaper industry, all are doing their part to spark a experiment in democracy burn to the ground. With regards to web-based media, almost anyone now has the potential to be a citizen journalist. I put journalist in quotes, because lets be honest, how many are reporting news or are simply pushing a half-baked commentary and trying to pass it off as serious journalism? On the one hand, web-based reporting is a great development, and the almost endless number of blogs do help uncover stories that conventional journalists dont have time or the means to cover. However, theres a dark, seedy and sinister side to online journalism that should shake you to your core. Conspiracy theorists like Glenn Beck and Alex Jones use the web as a means to distribute their deranged beliefs to the hardcore believers. Both Beck and Jones use their websites to bloviate endlessly on an array of ridiculous conspiracy theories masquerading as news. Id consider their inane beliefs hilarious if no one took them seriously. Sadly, far too many do. If the conspiracy theorists dont concern you, then the lack of hard news websites should. Scourers of web-based news are dealt with an endless stream of ideological websites masquerading as news, but those sites spend most of their time bashing those they dont like. From Drudge Report and FOX Nation on the right, to the Daily Kos and Talking Points Memo on the left, its far too easy to plug your ears, put the blinders on and only receive news from one angle. Who needs fact-based journalism when opinion is far more fun? Rather than hard reporting, CNN, Fox and MSNBC push an array of talking heads yelling at viewers, demanding acceptance of their point of view. When theyre too tired to talk, they bring in pundits to push an ideology for them. Also in the midst of a breaking news story such as the recent shootings at the Navy Yard or the Boston Bombing news networks regularly get their facts wrong in a rush This happened to NBC and CNN in the immediate aftermath of the Navy Yard shooting last month. Both networks incorrectly reported the name of the shooter and quickly had to issue retractions. Similar events occurred in the aftermath of the Boston Bombing. After the bombs went off and confusion and chaos gripped the streets of the city, networks quickly jumped F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum at Harvard University was somehow connected to the attacks. sion-news networks regularly look like the losers as they trade facts for speed. We all want to receive news as it breaks, but getting the facts wrong does more to hurt the story and our society than it helps. The talking heads look foolish, and we grow dumber and a bit more impatient as a result. For the sake of our democracy and our nations future, its imperative we seek out the truth, not some distorted monstrosity created to sell ads, promote an ideology or push partisan viewpoints to the edge. Plenty of great journalists are working today and doing their part to tell the truth. Their numbers arent dwindling; rather, people arent yearning for facts the way they used to. Its time for journalists across the country to once again remind the American people why its so important not only to have a free press but one that prides itself in telling the unmitigated truth. Joel Mendelson is a UF graduate student in political campaigning. His column runs on Mondays.How the Internet and television news undermine journalismColumn Joel This past Thursday, I attended an event hosted by CAMERA and UF Hillel titled Less Hamas, More Hummus. As if the title alone wasnt ridiculous and incredibly offensive to Palestinians, I think the statements by speaker Dr. Anat Berko also bordered on insanity. At surface level, her talk appeared to be about the plight of suffering Palestinian women; however, it wasnt hard for me to see the thinly masked racist Orientalism hidden behind faux-feminist remarks. It seems to me that Berko, despite her guise as a progressive or even possibly a feminist, actually uses the very personal anecdotes of women to justify the massively oppressive actions of Israel. In my opinion, there is nothing progressive about using the struggles of women to promote a disgusting, repressive occupation. I think she undermines their plight and also conveniently leaves out the systematic human rights violations the Israeli Defense Forces carries out against Palestinian women every single day. In protest of her speech, Students for Justice in Palestine held a walkout to make it clear our campus doesnt feel comfortable with what we see as hate speech. Four members of SJP stood up during her talk wearing signs that read Hamas isnt the problem, Israeli occupation is, The IDF kills women and children, and Gaza is under siege and blockade. One female member read a short statement denouncing the event, and furthermore the overall demonization of Palestinian culture. In response, Berko completely lost her composure, screaming at the members and responding with threats. Sadly, this behavior wasnt surprising to me, as I think its typical of Israeli apologists to respond to any sort of resistance with hysteria and a zero-tolerance policy for any sort of dissent. As a representative of the Israeli occupation, Berko herself helped hammer home the point SJP wanted to bring to light: Israel and its apologists have no room for free thought, resistance or any sort of Palestinian voice. It is not Hamas that occupies the West Bank and Gaza, denies women basic health care or access to hospitals where they can safely give birth to their children, kidnaps Palestinian children, divides families, bulldozes homes and shoots teenagers in the back for throwing stones at tanks rolling through their neighborhoods. Ask a Palestinian woman about her struggles and she will surely tell you about checkpoints, sons murdered by IDF soldiers, the need for electricity and the fact that she has no clean water to survive on. The IDF arrests 500 to 700 Palestinian children per year. Berkos attempts to place the blame for oppression in Palestine on Palestinians themselves is nothing other than a racist means to solidify Israels systemically oppressive tactics. There is no excuse for holding events like this one, which completely marginalize Palestinian voices and forget that Palestinians are actual human beings. Come on, Bob Graham Center for Public Service: I know you can do better than this. Ive attended genuinely inspirational and progressive events here. Please, live up to that name, and stop giving a voice to individuals whose only goal is to ignore the worth of an entire group of people and maintain the status quo. If you would like to hear voices from Palestinians themselves, join Students for Justice in Palestine, and be on the lookout for Palestinian Peoples Week in the last week of October.

ALEXIA FERNANDEZAlligator Contributing Writer A UF graduate student conducted a study for smell sensitivity that led to constage Alzheimers disease. Using a teaspoon of peanut butter and a ruler on test subjects, Jennifer Stamps, who studies biomedical sciences with a concentration in neuroscience, found that a persons sense of smell or lack thereof can detect Alzheimers disease. Stamps conducted the experiment on 24 subjects and found that 10 had an extremely low sense of smell in their left nostril as compared to their right. There was a difference of 12 centimeters between the left and the right nostril, she said. We realized ing. The impairment in the left nostril always led to a positive Alzheimers disease diagnosis. On average, there was a 5 centimeter smelling range for the left nostril, which is part of the olfactory nerve. The nerve is stimulated by the smell of a pure odorant, like peanut butter. Stamps mentor, Dr. Kenneth Heilman, told her if she could come up with something quick and inexpensive she could conduct the study. Other neurological exams fail to test sense of smell because its time consuming, Stamps said. Right now, the peanut butter test is good for early diagnostics, she said. We still want to research what the impairments mean. Reynaldo Calzadilla, a 20-year-old computer engineering sophomore, whose grandfather had Alzheimers disease, said he would opt out of the diagnostic test. I just feel like I would change my life in a negative way, Calzadilla said. Its good to know that science is advancing and helping people, but I still wouldnt want to know. Anyone who does the test at home should be cautious. Stamps said it will only work for people who are in the age range of being diagnosed with Alzheimers. If youre doing this at home, please make sure you want to know, Stamps said. Dont freak out if your ly different in both nostrils. Get checked by your doctor. LAWRENCE CHANAlligator Contributing WriterThe city of Gainesville has become animated with the opening of the Anime Art Museum. The museum, located at 1155 NW style art museum to open in the U.S. and showcases 17 pieces of art. Carmen CJ Marrero-Akin, executive director and co-founder of the museum, opened it to the public on Tuesday. Along with a permanent art collection on exhibit, the museum will eventually feature art from visiting artists, themed exhibits on the history of anime and a cafe. We want to show that anime art pieces can be unique and creative in its own right, Marrero-Akin said. Marrero-Akin, a UF alumna who has been drawing since she was 7, said the goal of the museum is to fosing anime artists and to celebrate the artistic expressions behind popular franchises. All but one of the art displays are Marrero-Akins own work, but the museum is accepting art donations from local and international artists. Marrero-Akin said she hopes to open the museum to the broader community and eventually spotlight the works from young anime artists. Robert Witt, the 20-year-old president of the Gator Anime Club and an electrical engineering junior, said he hopes to visit the museum and bring the club with him. Anime may not be as popular in America as modern art, said Witt. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2013LIFESTYLEAndrea Sarcos / AlligatorSamba and MoreA dancer performs at the Brazilian Fest hosted at The JAM on Saturday night.

Lauginiger said the shelter has about 70 healthy cats ready for adoption. We usually have one area in our lobby for adoptable cats, but right now we have three rooms full of adoptable cats, she said. Most of the cats are around 4 months to 6 months old, she said. There arent many newborn kittens because the prime breeding season runs between June and August.

The walk-on kicker had not traveled with Florida during his three seasons with the team, a span of 44 games and a lot more practices.

Florida should leave its 17-6 loss to LSU feeling good about Tyler Murphy and awful about its offense. Although it seems contradictory, the play of a quarterback and the performance of an offense can be mutually exclusive. That was the case Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. Making just his third start in his fourth career game see, Kentucky and Arkansas as nothing more than mere speed bumps Murphy regressed against LSU in Death Valley. But that isnt why Florida lost. yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Unlike in previous games, he did not do much damage with his legs either. gest a pretty hideous performance. could have asked given what Murphy endured three hours and seven minutes of hell. For as much as the Gators supposedly improved along the offensive line the additions of Tyler Moore and Max Garcia were expected to help shore up a unit that returned Jon Harrison, Jon Halapio and D.J. Humphries it looks like they may have gotten worse. The group was putrid against an LSU defense that entered Saturday ninth in the Southeastern Conference with 10 sacks on the season. Murphy was sacked four times, but that number could have easily been closer to 10 if not for some heady plays and incredible movement in the pocket by the redshirt junior signal-caller. Facing a second and 2 from the LSU 39-yard line during Floridas opening possession, Murphy was in the clutches of a Tigers defender until he miraculously shoveled a pass to Mack Brown for a gain of a yard. And its something he did several other times during the game while running for his life.

WALKER IS A SOPHOMORE. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickAlthough forward DeVon Walker has impressed Billy Donovan in practice, the Florida coach has not ruled out redshirting Walker this season because of UFs frontcourt depth. Donovan said he would monitor the sophomores progress during the next three weeks before deciding if he will have a role in the rotation for the Gators, who could be short-handed at the start of 2013-14 due to the potential absences of Will Yeguete (knee), Eli Carter (leg) and Scottie Wilbekin (suspension). The forward would have input on the decision, Donovan said. But if Walker were to not redshirt, Donovan does not want the 6-foot-6 Winter Haven native to assume a limited role like he did during his freshman season. Walker totaled 20 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks in 25 contests last year. I want to feel comfortable as a coach that hes a legitimate rotational guy, Donovan said. What I dont want to do is put him in a situation where maybe he plays because of some injuries and things like that earlier on, and when those other guys come back we dont see him playing a lot. I could see him playing a lot of minutes. But I want it to be something that I see that happening throughout the course of the year and not just a stretch. Walker was close to leaving UF during the offseason. On May 6, Walker announced his intent to transfer from Florida. But a week later, Walker retracted his decision and chose to remain with the Gators. He said his initial desire to transfer was not primarily about playing time. There were just some misunderstandings, Walker said. Just basically miscommunications. Just small stuff. During the offseason, Walker has worked on improving his shooting and adding more muscle to his upper body. When the lanky Walker did see meaningful minutes for the injury-ridden Gators last season during Southeastern Conference play, he struggled guarding and rebounding against bulkier, more physical forwards. Hes put in a lot of work, sophomore guard Dillon Graham said. Hes gotten a lot stronger (and) a lot bigger. Although his standing in the rotation remains unknown, Walker is excited to begin his sophomore season. As far as my role, Ill just be whatever they need me to be, Walker said. If I get called on, Ill just have to make sure that Im ready to step in to play. Hill getting accustomed: The weekend of practice, and Donovan is already impressed with the play of freshman Kasey Hill. A McDonalds All-American, Hill will begin the season as Floridas starting point guard while Wilbekin sion. Its really hard because when [a freshman is] with a group of veterans, those veterans are so much further along in terms of understanding the system, Donovan said. But I have not been in a situation where Ive had to hold back, go a little bit slower. Hes kind of absorbing and picking up everything that were putting in so far.
