SEAN STEWART-MUNIZ Alligator Staff Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgAlthough the weather is starting to cool down, UF students are staying hot. UF was ranked No. 13 in The Daily Beasts 20 sexiest colleges in the nation for 2013, behind University of Miami and Miami University, and ahead of Florida State University. The rankings were based off of data from College Prowler, which ranked universities by the attractiveness of its men and women, as well as Trojans annual sexual health report card for universities across the country. Each of the three factors was weighed equally. College Prowler rated men and women on the hotness scale by the following characteristics: attractiveness, athleticism, creativity, friendliness, fun, geeky, hardworking, into partying, outgoing, smart and stuck-up. The social scene on campus as well as the ratio of males to females was also taken into account. UFs men weighed in at 8.72 out 10, standing behind its women who ranked 9.03. Trojan ranked the university No. 12 for sexual health, based on accessibility of sexual health resources and information available to students. Shelby Weber, a 20-year-old UF health science junior, said she feels UFs rank has a lot to do with Greek life bringing in a lot of attractive people to campus. 89 /69 FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 CLASSIFIEDS 10 CROSSWORD 13 SPORTS 14VOLUME 108 ISSUE 42 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2013 Kristi Camara / Alligator StaffDance at DuskA Zumba dancer guides a warm-up for walkers at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Societys Light the Night Walk outLIFESTYLE NICOLE GIAQUINTOAlligator Contributing WriterBuyers, beware: Used furniture is now more likely to be harboring tiny pests. A recent poll by the National Pest Management Association shows calls to exterminators about bedbugs have increased by 57 percent a podcast recently released by UF Health Communications. However, the problem has not reached UF dorms. It has been about 10 to 15 years since bedbugs have been increasing, and they have not stopped increasing yet, said Roberto Pereira, an associate research scientist for the UF entomology and nematology department. Joey Muccio, a 21-year-old Gainesville resident, ran into a bedbug problem while interning at a camp during the summer, and it still haunts him. Once you get them, they get in your head and plague you, Muccio said. Every time I wake up with a bump, I immediately think I have bedbugs. Because UF has a Green Shield ment program, exterminators in residence halls or family housing use Styrofoam heat boxes to control bedbugs, said Wayne Walker, the senior pest control technician for the UF department of housing. Walker and his team follows bedbug protocol for each of the 10 to 15 cases received a year, even if they dont suspect bedbugs to be the problems origin. Sometimes, its psychological and just the simple fact of doing something solves the issue, Walker said.National rise in bedbugs hasnt bit UFs dormsSEE SEXY, PAGE 4UF ranked 13th sexiest college SOME LOCAL STORES DONT CARRY THEM.

I wouldnt wear it unless I lost a bet. Miley isnt the only skimpy-celebrity suit on sale this Halloween. Costumes resembling the real-life ensembles of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are also available at Simply Halloween in Butler Plaza and the Halloween Superstore in the Oaks Mall. However, the two stores dont carry the Miley costume. Simply Halloween employee Nicole Gomez, 19, said people are asking about it, though. Nineteen-year-old Kristi McDonough, also an employee, said she would wear the costume despite the questionable image it promotes.

Phillips said there were nearly 300 registrants as of Thursday, and he said he expects the number to climb. He said the route, which winds through the Town of Tioga subdivision, will be closed and more scenic than the year before. Kerry Brock, general manager of World of Beer, said they were granted an extension of permit to serve outside the building and will host the postrace party. Brock said the selection of beer for the 5K will be provided by local Swamp Head Brewery and Bold City Brewery from Jacksonville.More scenic route for annual beer runCAMPUS EMILY BEHRENSAlligator Contributing WriterUFs Sigma Chi fraternity hostP.K. Yonge to promote exercise and healthy living. games for the after-school program, while also informing children about healthy food choices. Greg Dana, the community service organizer for Sigma Chi, said children what and what not to eat at an interactive station at the carnival. We drink so much soda now and eat so much fast food now that its a rising issue in the United States, and were trying to tackle it at its roots, the 20-year-old UF economics sophomore said. Sigma Chi wants to do the carnival every semester at different elementary schools, preferably ones that are from different socioeconomic backgrounds, Dana said. We already have seeds planted for other schools in the coming semesters, Dana said. The goal is to do well here and go out and educate the whole youth in Gainesville. Robert Cox, the director of the Blue Wave After School Inc. program at P.K. Yonge, said he hopes the children had a good time while learning about their health. I think its important for some solid young people to be around some other young people and be they can learn something along the way, thats great.Fraternity promotes healthy lifestyles with fitness carnivalUF students theories: Greek life, intelligence, sun-kissed skinUF gets this reputation of being a smart-people college, she said. Honestly, when you walk around campus there are a lot of pretty people, which is nice. However, Netanya Wynn, a 21year-old UF public relations senior and PR director for the Faces Modeling Troupe, said its UF students intelligence that makes them attractive. Its a psychological thing where the people who are sexy are also the people who are smarter, she said. On the list, University of Wisconsin reached the climax as the sexiest college in the nation, earning a score of 9.32 and 9.12 for their men and women, respectively. Tyler Ericson, a 19-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology sophomore, said because Floridas students are always in the sunshine they show more skin. When its always summer time, you care about your body more, he said.

JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Staff Writer jwerley@alligator.orgThe universitys emergency department has broken away from the Department of Environmental Health and Safety and become the Department of Emergency Management. The new department will be housed with the Division of Public Safety, said Linda Stump, UF chief of police and assistant vice president of public and environmental safety. She said establishing emergency management as its own department is in step with the growth of emergency management across the country. Kenneth Allen, emergency manager for the new department, said other universities and colleges have emergency management growing on their campuses. Allen said his role will be to coordinate the emergency management program, which includes focusing on issues and continuing initiatives. Now that emergency management said it can bring more attention to safety on campus. Our goal is always to focus on preparedness and university response, he said. Stump said the department will be able to give students all kinds of updates, including UFAlerts and weather updates. We want people to recognize Emergency Management as a resource, she said. Funding for the department hasnt changed, Stump said. She said a goal of emergency management is to continue outreach, to prepare for an active shooter and prepare buildings for an emergency. People will see more proactive, educational initiatives to make sure the community is informed, she said.UF emergency management now its own department LOCAL CHIP LOWEAlligator Contributing WriterPrepare to be swamped with more Gator gear. Butler Enterprises announced this week that Alumni Hall, an athletic store franchise, will be joining Butler Plaza at 3730 SW Archer Road. It will be in the spot formerly occupied by The Floor Trader. Weve been wanting to get into Gainesville for a long time now, said Jeff Goodfriend, president of the chain. My mission was to open a collegiate store that did things a little differently. That mission evolved into creating a destination for all Florida Gators paraphernalia. If we dont have it, well get it for you, Goodfriend said. The store will be 4,400 square feet, which is larger than the typical Alumni Hall store, he said. It will offer a 10 percent student discount. David Lopez, a 19-year-old UF political science and economics sophomore who works at UF RecSports, said he didnt think there are too many Gator stores in town. I think there should be more so the price goes down, he said. Lopez said he thinks students whereas alumni who come to town for gamedays will go to the store because it advertises good customer service. Alumni are not really priceconscious when it comes to Gator stuff, he said. I think they do look for a better environment and better customer service. Goodfriend said he thinks Gainesville residents will like what Alumni Hall has to offer. I believe that we can bring something to Gainesville that theyve never seen, he said.New Gator paraphernalia store to join Butler Plaza lineup If we dont have it, well get it for you.Jeff Goodfriendpresident

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 UF ADMINISTRATION AGREED TO MEET NEXT WEEK. VALERIE CRUMAlligator Contributing WriterUF administration agreed to meet with a group of students next week following a rally they held for opportunity outside Tigert Hall on Thursday. The local Students for a Democratic Society organization partnered with other campus groups to ask UF to consider granting undocumented in-state students in-state tuition regardless of their immigration status. Undocumented students are told in high school that they can work hard and earn their way up, but that hope is shut down as soon as they graduate, said Chrisley Carpio, 21, a UF history senior and lead SDS organizer for the event. Regardless of how long they lived in Florida, undocumented students are charged either international or out-ofstate tuition fees to attend UF. This past summer, Florida International University passed a tuition equity policy that will provide in-state tuition for students under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which helps undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children. but we are falling behind, Carpio said. She organized the event to encourage the UF Board of Trustees to consider passing a similar policy at an upcoming meeting in December. Historically, this has happened over and over again, said Farah Khan, a UF English and sociology sophomore. One group of people is taking education away from others. Khan is the vice president of external affairs for UFs Students for Justice in Palestine. The group participated in the rally along with student members of CHISPAS and La Casita. Undocumented students are being kept in their place with the limited job opportunities that come from having no higher education, Khan said.UF, SDS to discuss tuition EVAN ECHAVEAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville: No. 1 in our hearts and No. 34 in the best place to live in the country. The city of Gainesville just clinched a spot on Livability.coms Top 100 Best Places to Live list. The list, which was released Tuesday, was narrowed down from 700 smallto mid-sized cities across the country. The ranking is purely data driven, said Matt Carmichael, the 39-year-old vice president and editor of the website. Each city was ranked on criteria including demographics, economy, education, health care and housing. The scores were added up and compared to place; Boulder, Colo., took No. 2, and Berkeley, Calif., took third. Beside Gainesville, seven other Florida citplace, Tampa in 19th and Tallahassee in 42nd. list the website has produced, it will be recreated and updated once a year, Carmichael said. Its inaugural but an annual list, Carmichael said. Andy Fasig, the 42-year-old manager at Chain Reaction Bike Shop, arrived in Gainesville in 91 as a UF student. He said he wasnt surprised by Gainesvilles high ranking. Its great because Gainesville has the smalltown appeal without the small-town thinking, he said. You get the best of both worlds. Fasig said he especially likes the centralized feel of Gainesville and deemed it the best bike community in Florida. Rebecca Atkins, 21, is a UF wildlife ecology and conservation senior and was happy to hear Gainesville ranked so high. Even as a Tallahassee native, Atkins said she favors her current city, which has been her home for the past four years. Ive never had a bad experience in Gainesville, she said. While No. 34 is a strong placement, Fasig still thinks Gainesville can do better. Id like to see us in the top 20, he said.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Florida goes on the road to face two Southeastern Conference opponents. Read the story online at announcedWill Muschamp announced via Twitter that Jarrad Davis, Dante Fowler Jr., Jon Halapio and Jon Harrison would be Floridas captains against Missouri on Saturday ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24LSU gouged Florida for 175 yards on the ground on Saturday in Baton Rouge, La. The schedule does not get any easier for the No. 22 Gators (4-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) this week. Florida will travel to Columbia, Mo., on Saturday to face No. 14 Missouri (6-0, 2-0 SEC) in Faurot Field. When the Gators get there, they will square off against the No. 16 run offense in the country. The Tigers, coming off a 4126 upset win on the road against then-No. 7 Georgia, feature three halfbacks who are averaging more than 5 yards per carry. Redshirt juniors Henry Josey, Marcus Murphy and sophomore Russell Hansbrough have combined for 1,099 yards through six games. They got three outstanding backs that are all guys that make you pay if you miss a play in space, coach Will Muschamp said on the SEC weekly media teleconference on Wednesday. Added linebacker Michael Taylor: I expect us to stop the run against them. That will not be an easy task, but Taylor has a plan in mind. Hit the person with the ball and get them on the ground, he said. Thats it. Floridas run defense has been ailing since losing senior Dominique Easley to a torn ACL. But now the defense might be down another starter. Redshirt junior Ronald Powell suffered an ankle injury against LSU on Saturday and had not practiced as of Wednesday. Were hoping to get him on how he moves around there, Muschamp said. Floridas rush defense is still ranked fourth in the nation, but it has had its two worst games the last two weeks, surrendering 175 yards to LSU and 111 to Arkansas on Oct. 5. Continue reading online at So, we here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column heard that the government was back in business and that they celebrated by raising the debt ceiling. Hooray! Harry Reid was decked out in triple party hats. John Boehner played some Beethoven on a kazoo. Everyone played Pin the tail on the Democrat Get it? Because donkey! but nobody could get over all the elephants in the room Get it? Republicans! We like to celebrate by raising the roof and raising the stakes hello, Missouri! Were sending our very own sports editor Phillip Heilman to Floridas northernmost game since the Gators played Syracuse in the Carrier Dome in 1991. Also, a little thing called the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division is sort of on the line, so grab your popcorn! Its going to be a wild party in Columbia because, well, the Tigers are undefeated! And theyre ranked 14th in the country not the SEC! If we had told you that Mizzou would be undefeated and ranked among the nations top 15 teams by the time it hosted UF, you probably would have burned our papers in some sort Of course, it would have made one hell of a party. Just go ahead and do it anyway! SOMEBODY CALL 9-1-1! SHAWTY FIRE BURNING sorry. We just love to party. So forgive us for channeling Sean Kingston right there, and well forgive you for burning our have this weekend. Whenever democracy triumphs, its something worth celebrating. So may your parties be merry! And remember to raise the debt ceil uh, roof! This week, two kids hanging out by themselves just looking at their shoes over by the punch bowl alligatorSports Assistant Editor Adam Lichtenstein and alligatorSports Staff Writer Adam Pincus debate this Saturdays contest between Florida and Mizzou.Picks Column SITE: Faurot Field (cap. 71,004) KICKOFF: 12:21 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: SEC Network / 850 AM SEE PICKS, PAGE 15 SEE HOOPS, PAGE 15 Ryan Jones / AlligatorRonald Powell (7) attempts to block a pass at the line of scrimmage during Floridas 17-6 loss against LSU on Oct. 12 at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. Powell is questionable for Saturdays matchup against Missouri due to an ankle injury. Gators to face formidable Tigers run offenseMENS BASKETBALL LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickCoach Billy Donovan received some good news Thursday regarding injuries and illness. Senior forward Will Yeguete (knee) and Rutgers transfer guard Eli Carter (leg) have been cleared by team trainers to participate in limited contact drills, UF announced. After missing practice earlier this week, sophomore shooting guard Michael Frazier II (virus) was also cleared Thursday. The coaching staff initially feared he could have mononucleosis, but tests came back negative. If Frazier were to have contracted mono, he could have missed up to six weeks. I feel pretty good, Frazier said in a release. Much better than the other day. The news on the injury front Thursday was not all good for the Gators. Sophomore guard Dillon Graham rolled his ankle during practice, according to the school. He was carried off the court and did not return. Floridas lack of bodies in practice has been the biggest story of its preseason. But if the injury bug carries into the start of the 2013-14 season, senior center Patric Young is prepared for the challenge. First three games of the season, I might have to be playing 38 minutes because we are down to seven guys due to injuries and illnesses right now, he said. Young takes shot at UK: Young has a message for Kentucky: Hype does not matter. Kentucky is the medias pick to win the SEC this season, while Florida was chosen second. I hope they think they can just walk on the court and theyre going to beat everybody, Young, a preseason All-SEC secondteamer, said during Southeastern Conference Basketball Media Days on Thursday in Birmingham, Ala. As soon as they play a real top team, theyre going to see its not just a walk in the park. One-and-done is not for everybody. The Wildcats failed to reach the NCAA Tournament last season after winning a national title in 2011-12, but John Caliparis squad has reloaded with six McDonalds Players cleared to return to limited practiceFrazier II They got three outstanding backs that are all guys that make you pay if you miss a play in space.Will MuschampUF coachTweetableShift happens. I drive automatic. Nick Washington (@NickWashingtonn) UF defensive back


The Tigers (+3) will get one step closer to earning an invitation to Atlanta because The Gators are on the brink of collapse with their season headed into a black hole kind of what happens at each successive bar on Bourbon Street. Florida needs this game in the worst way, but Maty Mauk will lead Mizzou to victory. Pour one out for UFs season. Adam Pincus The Gators (-3) are going to dance the night er, afternoon away because... The Tigers will get to tango with Floridas defense. UF has the No. 4 rush defense in the nation, perfect to stop UMs potent run game. Unlike the above member of our staff, the Gators are over what happened in Louisiana and are ready to take on the Tigers. YALL READY FOR THIS? -Adam Lichtenstein Now onto the picks! Leading the pack at 34-19-3 is alligatorSports editor Phillip Winnie the Tattoo Heilman, who stopped a stranger at a gas station in Alabama last weekend to admire the mans bear tattoo. Listen, we know you were more interested in the bears honey. We get it. Youre lonely. Just please stop talking up the manliness of the tattoo already. In second with a record of 3221-3 is alligatorSports Staff Writer Joe CALEB STURGIS Morgan, who joined Florida coach Will Muschamp as the only two men on Earth to yell out the Miami Dolphins kickers name in their sleep. We know why Will misses Caleb, Joe, but your longing for him is a little weird. Oh, and Josh Scobee called. He said you told him there was room for only one kicker in your heart. Sitting in third at 31-22-3 is alligatorSports Assistant Editor Adam Chivalry is dead Lichtenstein, who decided to send one of our female photographers out alone in the rain at night to fetch the car after the LSU game. Never mind that our parking spot was a mile away just as long as you dont get a little bit wet. Hard to believe you have a girlfriend, bud. Ranked fourth at 30-23-3 is FightinGators.coms Cody Fall training Jones, who has been busy tweeting about Gators baseball scrimmages while there is perfectly good football being played. Karsten Whitson may be throwing 95 mph, but grown men are hitting each other! Get your priorities right, man! Worst among the alligatorSports Writer Adam Oops Pincus, who could neither stand at attention nor contain his, uh, excitement in an old war story he told in the car on the road to LSU last weekend. Heres hoping he enjoys stronger and longer-lasting relationships with his future clients. In sixth at 27-26-3 is 247Sports. coms Thomas Heisenberg Goldkamp, who daydreamed about how much money he could make on the side as an entrepreneur in a certain shady business. Just stick with the we could see you getting all Walter Barely below .500 at 26-27-3 is the Orlando Sentinels Edgar Tardy Pass Thompson, who apologized to Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease after showing up late to a press conference last week. Thankfully, Pease gave him a pass just that one time, though. You cant really blame Edgar. Back when he was in grade school, the nuns beat him with a ruler when he showed up late. And in dead-ass last with a pisspoor record of 24-29-3 is InsideTheGators.coms Bryan Beef Baby Holt, who recounted how his mother used to work at Arbys. It all makes sense now. Weve always thought you were made entirely of Beef N Cheddar sandwiches onion bun and all.

I am not surprised, coming out of high school, there is all the hype and what-not. It doesnt really mean too much, Young said. The one that really counts is the one at the end of the year. This guy (Randle) has not gone through any adversity or played a single minute yet, so we will see how things turn out. Floridas new motto: Young revealed Thursday that the teams mantra for the 2013-14 season is S.W.A.G. an acronym for Strengthen When Adversity Grows. We need to strengthen as adversity gets more and more in our face, Young said. We need to stay together and be connected. Added Donovan: Those guys came up with it themselves. Its kind of what they wanted to do. Gators at No. 8 in poll: poll of the 2013-14 season, the ESPN/USA Today coaches preseason poll, has Florida Kentucky, Michigan State, Louisville, No. 6 Kansas, No. 13 Memphis, No. 19 Connecticut and No. 21 Wisconsin are on UFs non-conference slate this season. Those kind of games is where you learn a lot about yourself from, Donovan said. HOOPS, from page 14
