Georgia Southern, a Football Championship Subdivision team that was missing 19 scholarship players due to injury and had lost to the likes of Wofford, Samford, Appalachian State and Furman, dominated Florida on its own turf without completing a pass. Georgia Southern (7-4, 4-4 Southern Conference) gained 429 rushing yards using the triple option to pull off a historic 26-20 upStadium that snapped a 22-year bowl appearance streak for Florida (4-7, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) a current FCS team since 1946. Very disappointed for our program, coach Will Muschamp said. An embarrassment in this situation. Florida managed just 279 yards of offense and allowed the fourth most rushing yards in school history. Eight Georgia Southern players had a rush attempt of 10 or more yards. Georgia Southern earned a reported $550,000 just to share numbers did not add up. Florida entered the game as 27.5-point favorites. Its football expenses of $67 million are more than seven times Georgia Southerns entire athletic budget. This never should have been close. They came out here and played their tails off. This was their ballgame, right guard Jon Halapio said. They had nothing to lose. We took them lightly. At the start, it looked as if Florida could ride its talent to a victory. Redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg, starting his second game in place of injured quarterback Tyler Murphy, led a 13-play, 63-yard opening drive that ended in a 27Freshman Kelvin Taylor had eight carries on the drive for 54 yards. Georgia Southern punter Luke Cherry fumbled the snap on a punt to end the subsequent series. On the next Eagles possession, safety Jabari Gorman stripped the ball from GSU running back Johnathan Bryant. Linebacker Michael Taylor recovered the ball at the Georgia Southern 14-yard line. Mornhinweg, scrambling right, found Solomon Patton in the endtouchdown of his career. Despite a commanding 10-point lead with 13:31 left in the second quarter. We did not play a perfect game. We put ourselves in bad situations, but nobody panicked, Georgia Southern coach Jeff Monken said. There was never any doubt in their minds. The doubt escalated for Florida once it became clear that it would not generate a passing offense, and Georgia Southern buckled down against the run. Taylor gained 11 yards during lowing his 54-yard opening drive. Georgia Southern, led by senior Jerick McKinnon, gashed Florida in the run game.

Nine members gathered outside Tigert Hall to hand over about 6,200 signatures from an online petition on, 200 handwritten letters, endorsements from almost every major student organization and 13 news articles to Jamal Sowell, the liaison to the Board of Trustees. This campaign is about tuition equity, but its also about free speech and democracy, Conor Munro, a lead organizer for SDS, told the crowd. Munro handed over a thick folder to Sowell, who then said a few words. As an administration, we never want to stop free speech, Sowell said. We want to pass what theyre saying along. The night before, students from the group appeared at the Faculty Senate meeting, where faculty voted 40-27, falling short of a twothirds majority, to move the item to be discussed at the upcoming Board of Trustees meeting. speaking time at the meeting on Dec. 6. The biggest emphasis to note is that this can be effective at a university level, said Michela Martinazzi, a 21-year-old UF art history senior and a lead organizer for SDS. Undocumented students currently do not qualify for in-state tuition and therefore must pay outof-state tuition, which costs about four times as much. At Nov. 13s Student Senate meeting, representatives from Hispanic Student Association, Black Student Union and Asian American Student Union, among 15 other organizations, also spoke during public debate in support of a resolution. The Senate approved the resolution with a majority vote. Florida International University has also passed a similar measure. Munro, a 22-year-old UF history and economics senior, said he feels as an item on the boards agenda. I feel like the ball is in their court, he said.

We are happy and delighted to collaborate with Baby Gator, McCaan said.

ELIZABETH BROWN Alligator Contributing Writer Although college students might view their major as a seal of fate, a new survey says that might not be the case. A recently released study found one-third of college-educated employees do not work in careers related to their majors. The survey, conducted in August and September, also found that 47 percent of the 2,134 college graduates samto what they studied in college. In addition, 36 percent of participants said they wish they could have changed their major. Kristina DePue, a UF assistant counselor education professor, said she thinks this is because of the poor state of the job market. She said graduates with degrees in science, engineering and technology are mainly the ones landing jobs areas might not be the same case. With this competition in the job market, DePue said she thinks more people are coming back to school. She said because of major overlaps, like education similarities between sociology and psychology or education and social sciences, the actual major doesnt matter as much. But according to the study, 32 percent of the participants said they never found a job related to their major. Even though jobs are scarce, DePue said, just having an undergraduate degree is still attractive to employers, and strengthening a skill set is crucial. Its lots of challenges, time demands and deadlines, she said. For students looking for jobs right after graduation, DePue said location plays a big role in landing a job small cities like Gainesville wont offer the same amount of opportunities like bigger cities. Gaby Alvarez, a 21-yearold UF philosophy senior, said she thinks the logical reasoning and thinking skills shes learning will be helpful when she attends law school. She said her main concern is getting a well-rounded education, not necessarily The survey also found that 64 percent of employees are As a professor, DePue said undergraduate students should invest time in practical classes and additional training. Because students are not familiar with the job world, she said, they should speak with their professors, be proactive and work toward getting internships. You open a door for yourself, she said.

Elizabeth Auer, assistant director for UFPA, said the touring Broadway crew will arrive in Gainesville on Jan. 2 and rehearse for a week before its kickoff performance. Erika Ackerman, a 21-year old UF public relations senior, saw Rock of Ages in New York City. I thought it was very good. It appealed to the young crowd, Ackerman said. It was a little raunchy.Rock of Ages coming to UF in JanuaryUF to measure how many leave earlypart of the already four-day weekend to ease traveling for students. With some 50,000 students enrolled, having the entire Student Body jam into highways and airports on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving would create a travel nightmare. The concern now is that students are not showing up for classes earlier, Mair said. The issues arose when students took off extra days, skipping classes the Monday or Friday before. Professors like Linda Perry, a lecturer in UFs colleges of journalism and agriculture, feel the issue of student attendance shouldnt mean taking away the extra day. She said many students live four to six hours away, and having everyone drive home Wednesday night poses a serious risk. I have to side with the students on this one. They need that Wednesday, Perry said. Mair is urging students to avoid taking off an excess amount of days so their extra day wont be killed in the Faculty Senate vote. Im relying on students to come to class Monday and Tuesday, he said. I think its a good thing, but if its abused, they will lose this privilege. He said because many classes dont take attendance, different data will be collected to gauge student presence. RTS ridership, transacall be measured to determine how many students left early.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13 Georgia Southerns triple option confused Florida defenserushing touchdowns by Kevin Ellison and William Banks. The Gators did not have any margin for error on defense with an offense that from 9:06 remaining in the second quarter to the end of the third. Muschamp publicly admitted that frustration directed towards the offense has manifested itself in a once-vaunted defense. It becomes infectious. Its hard when you give up 17 points (and) you hope you score 17, Muschamp said. Thats hard right now. The triple option, by design, eliminated the talent disparity and slowed down a Florida defensive line that had trouble dealing with a Georgia Southern offensive line that cut blocked at the knees. Defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said before the game that the team had been preparing for the triple option since the summer, but the Gators did not look the part. Instead, they played like a team that had only four days to prepare. Georgia Southern torched Florida for 7.9 yards per rush. They get to the perimeter really fast. Its sometimes hard to use your athletic ability, safety Cody Riggs said. You have got to use your eyes and play everything. Despite a defense that surrendered 429 rushing yards and an offense that could not move the football, Florida had a chance to win after Younghoe Koo shanked his second extra point on Saturday afternoon. Five completions moved the Gators from their own 36 to the Eagles 24 with fewer than 30 seconds remaining. Down 26-20, Mornhinweg needed a touchdown. Florida had four plays to get it. Three plays later, Georgia down pass to Patton in double coverage to end the game. The EaGators couldnt leave The Swamp fast enough. The Gator Marching Band, cheerleaders and mascots sang the alma mater alone. The longest bowl-appearance streak in the nation ended. Florida, now guaranteed its worst season in 35 years, has to get over the shock of arguably the worst loss in program history. Players such as Riggs, who arrived at Florida while Urban Meyer was still the coach, will have their careers. Im not going to lie. I never would have seen that coming to Florida, Riggs said. Thats very upsetting. Dominique Easley witnessed since suffering a season-ending torn right ACL on Sept. 24. Jeff Driskel watched with a walking boot on his right leg. Driskel and Easley conjured up thoughts of what Florida was, what it failed to become and what it could have been in 2013. It does not get any easier for the Gators. Next up is No. 2 Florida State.

JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer @J_McPherson1126 Cory McGee thought about one person as she walked up to the starting line at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow on Aug. 11. His name is Douglas Zembiec. She had known him her entire life. Zembiec, a U.S. Marine Corps major, died in Baghdad on May 11, 2007. He was 34. He would spend all sorts of time as a teenager hanging out with my family, working out, running with us, said Jim McGee, her father. He always came over for Thanksgiving. Very, very close member of our family. for the 1,500-meter race with a time of 4:12.33, which was 3.06 seconds The memory of Zembiec kept her going. It kind of gives me that extra strength, because I grew up with him as like my brother, she said. I think that his strength and his legacy in the military and just who he was as a person and the tragedy of him dying so young is just something that has kept me motivated. Her love of running started 13 years ago. Seeing her dad and then-11-year-old sister, Shannon, running made her want to join. Thats when I started running on the beach with her, Cory, now 21, said. She would always go with my dad, and I would try and jump in and stick out a few miles. But it was not until her family lived in Athens, Greece, while her father worked security for the 2004 glimpse of professional running. Cory had a lot of exposure, Jim said. She got to see all the athletes, where they trained, where they slept. It kind of planted the seed for what she wanted to do in the future. The McGee family settled down in Pass Christian, Miss., when they returned to the U.S. in 2005. The seed was ready to sprout. Yousri El Mejdoubi, a former runner at Southern Mississippi, wanted to coach McGee after seeing her race at a state meet when she was in the seventh grade. Hes mentored me through it all, McGee said. He made the sport fun for me. He made me love it. But he also made me work really hard. El Mejdoubis coaching paid off. On March 12, 2006, McGee ran the mile at the National Scholastic Indoor Championship at The Armory in New York. Despite being a 13-year-old eighth-grader on race day, she won the event with a time of 4:49.32 to set the record time for her age group while topping 23 high school athletes and one other middle school racer. McGee collapsed as she crossed members well. She was not going to lose, he said. She gave everything she had. McGees training level was elevated during her sophomore year of high school when she and other local high school runners had the opportunity to participate in a two-week camp in Colorado with El Mejdoubi. Most of the runners gave up afterward. Cory did not. It was one of those things where it gave you a taste of what it would take to be a collegiate track athlete or a collegiate cross country athlete, she said, and a lot of they wanted. That taste of being a college athlete became reality for McGee when for Florida on Sept. 18, 2010. She Mountain Dew Invitational, clocking a time of 17:47.37 in the 5K race on the Mark Bostick Golf Course. Cory is competitive. Shes a Paul Spangler said. Thats one of the things that makes her an elite runner. Following her sophomore year at Florida, McGee raced at the 2012 US Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore. She ran her 1,500-meter heat in 4:17.76 on June 28, 2012, which was 0.11 seconds shy of qualifying for If only she would have been lucky enough to have another near miss after the race. The night after competing, McGee went out to a local restaurant in Oregon with her mom and some friends. About seven feet away from her, a group of people was cheering and clinking their glasses. One of those glasses dropped, and a shard of it shot across the wooden deck where McGee was standing on and pierced her ankle. It didnt hurt, McGee said, but it was a really big gash in my ankle. After running the race of her life, she could not fathom what had just happened. I should have been totally remotivated, totally inspired but instead Im in a wheelchair, foot in a cast, stitches, surgery a week later, McGee said. It was such a freak accident. No one could believe it. I was beside myself. Even though the injury caused her to redshirt the 2012 cross country season and limit her training for three months, McGee believed that night was a blessing in disguise. lucky I am to be able to do this and how much I love it, McGee said. Thats how I was when I was a kid, and I think that got away from me for a good three or four years. Last year I found it again. McGee returned to action in 2013. She racked up two All-Amerrunner-up at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 1,500 meters. One year removed from her ankle injury, McGee headed to Belgium to run in the 2013 KBC Night of Athletics in July. 4:09 to qualify for Augusts World Championships, McGee ran the 1,500 meters in a personal-best 4:06.67 to claim her ticket to Moscow. Even though she only ran in the onships, McGee thought that competing in the race improved her I feel like an entirely different athlete, McGee said. I learned so much over the summer and also realized that sometimes you dont pick the circumstances, sometimes you dont pick the time and you dont really have any control over the other things going on in your life, but if you want to get the mission done, you can. For Cory, the mission isnt over yet. Ive always imagined myself on a podium at the Olympics, she said. I still believe that I can do it, and I think as I get older, it becomes more realistic. Being at the world championships this sumlieve that I belong there and truly believe I can compete with the women who were in the front. And when she gets there, she will think about Zembiec. It puts it in perspective what we do, she said. Were just athletes. Essentially what we do is a game and what he did was to represent the United States in a much more real way. uted to this report. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15Sarah Davis / AlligatorCory McGee races during the Southeastern Conference Championships on Nov. 1 on the Mark Bostick LOGAN MCGUIREAlligator Writer@LoganJMcGuiretion at the Ohio State Buckeye Invitational for the Gators mens and womens swimming and diving teams.

Floridas 25-year record in the womens 1,650-yard freestyle was broken Sunday when senior Alicia Mathieu touched the wall at 15:46.17, Every day at practice, I look at the record board. That has been my goal since Ive gotten here, Mathieu said. It was a tough swim for me. I felt forced to go out faster than I usually do, but I held on. Sophomore Natalie Hinds took down the 100-yard free record that had stood since 2010. Senior Ellese Zalewski was in on the record-breaking action Saturday with her The womens 400-yard medley relay With our program being in this type of dynamic this early in the season, makes this one of our most successful falls. We werent really expecting as much as far as school records, coach Gregg Troy said. We had a lot of good performances. We still have some weak areas that we need to address, but overall, this is what you want to see in the fall. To compliment the records, UF is getting poised for the postseason with those 22 NCAA A cuts it picked up in a meet that Troy said he used to assess his team. we were, we met a lot of our goals this weekend, Troy said.
