4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 ERIN MEISENZAHL-PEACEAlligator Staff Writeremeisenzahl-peace@alligator.orgStumbling the streets for Gator Stompin pub crawl has been a Gainesville tradition for 32 years. But overspending on this years Gator Stompin may have cost the event its 33rd year unless Jason Bowman can come up with a solution, and fast. The debt is mine and Pledge 5s. Were working to eliminate that, said Bowman, director of Pledge 5 Foundation, the volunteer service organization that has hosted Gator Stompin for the past nine years. Due to an unforeseen drop in thrift store sales and an overpriced concert, Pledge 5 owes multiple employees and nearly 80 bars and restaurants various amounts anywhere from $100 to $10,000 for their participation in Gator Stompin this May. Frustrated and without pay, some disgruntled employees have quit. Pledge 5 is currently facing two lawsuits in small claims court. Former thrift store manager lawsuits on July 28, said Bowman owes her four months of pay. I didnt make a dime, she said. Sacco began working for Pledge 5 as the manager of the University Avenue Pledge 5 thrift store, Thrift 5, a year and a half ago, and she was managing all three Pledge 5 thrift stores when she left in July. has funded Gator Stompin with thrift shop funds, Bowman said. We were in the process of opening the third store while putting on Pledge 5s largest fundraiser, Sacco said. able during Fall and prompted the foundation to open more. The Gator Stompin concert was a success last year, so this year, Bowman shot higher Waka Flocka Flame and Grammy-nominated DJ Wolfgang Gartner would surely increase ticket sales, he thought. Taking in to account artist compensation, venue fees and other concert costs, Pledge 5 paid close to $90,000 to bring the duo downtown. We realized it was gonna be a bigger event, so we staffed up, Bowman said, who grew his paid Gator Stompin team to about 25 members before the event. Then spring came, and thrift shop sales went down. Average daily revenue dropped to a quarter of what it had been in the fall. Because Pledge 5s University Avenue location is so reliant on students, it took the move-out season much harder than other area thrift stores. We would have been OK if our thrift shop revenue remained steady through the spring, Bowman said. To say it plummeted would be an understatement. The concert was paid for, but Pledge 5 had yet to compensate its employees and had no funds available to reimburse the bars and restaurants. The attrition was fast and furious, Bowman said. Frustrated and unemployed, Sacco spoke to the U.S. Department of Labor in Jacksonville and doesnt expect to get back the money shes owed. I know I will not get that, she said. He simply does not have it. As for Gator Stompin, Sacco said she doesnt see how it could continue after this year. Pledge 5 lost all its money and lost the trust of businesses, she said. But Bowman said he has a viable plan to get it all back. In the future, were going to separate Gator Stompin from Pledge 5, Bowman said. He plans to gain capital for Gator Stompin through an equity crowdfunding website called SeedInvest, which began after the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act deregulated certain online business ventures in 2012. Like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, SeedInvest crowdfunds to startup businesses. But rather than taking donations, SeedInvest sells shares. Gator Stompin will have to break from Pledge 5 and become its own business in order to take advantage of investors money, but Bowman said he believes its the best option he has to get out of debt. You cant call the years festival a failure by the event, Bowman said, Its a failure because we didnt have enough capital to run it. He said he believes the equity crowdfunding plan is viable because Gainesville residents love Gator Stompin and want to see it continue. Itll put the event in the hands of the community, he said. Bowman, who graduated from UF with a doctorate in psychology, said he understands that alsions were his, they affected a lot of people. They affected my employees. They affected the business owners that trusted me to be able to make their payments, he said. Pledge 5 has been trying to regain that trust by issuing businesses small checks as thrift store has a few employees working in the thrift shops and three on staff celed all upcoming Pledge 5 charity drives and volunteer service events. I wont feel comfortable until everything is right, he said. Some of Bowmans friends and colleagues are willing to lend the leeway. Hes a good guy, said photographer Rodney Rogers, who shot photos for Gator Stompin this year but was paid only $10 of the $100 he was promised. something like this has ever happened. I have full faith that I will be repaid, he said. Even if the crowdfunding plan falls through, Bowman said hes produce enough to pay everyone back by the end of 2014 and said Gainesville shouldnt have doubts about Gator Stompin 2015. This is obviously a tragedy, Bowman said. But I really think that were going to get through it.Gator Stompin has plans to crowdfund itself out of debt Pub crawl in debt to local businesses You cant call the years festival a failure by the event.

According to the state, the friends met at the UF Hub at around 2 p.m. on Sept. 20, 2012. They went to Zaxbys, then Best Buy. They bought the CD and then drove around aimlessly, discussing Bravos issues. At around 4 p.m., security footage shows Bravos car arriving in the parking lot of the old WalMart on Northwest 13th Street. At 6:49 p.m., the car left, and Aguilar was dead. His cause of death was strangulation, and it took him 13 minutes to die. The state said Bravo probably used a woven belt found in the car by police. But according to the defense, Aguilar was alive when the car left the parking lot. They said Bravo and Aguilar picked up a hitchhiker, whom they let out later. Then the pair got into an argument. Aguilar wanted to leave the car. Bravo then got him out of the car and beat him for 10 to 15 minutes, leaving him bloody, on the ground and barely breathing. When Aguilars girlfriend, Friman, called Bravo the next day asking where Aguilar was, he told her about the argument, but not the beating. He went with her to the police station to report Aguilar missing. This was not Friman and Bravos dated for almost three years in high day, the breakup was messy and emotional on Bravos end. He was set to attend Florida International University on scholarship, and Friman had her sights set on Santa Fe. Over the last few days, the state has called Aguilars family and friends to the stand, as well as police Brian Kramer, who leads the prosecution, paints a picture of Bravo as a disturbed, suicidal individual who will do anything to get his former love back, including move to Gainesville and attend Santa Fe. Upon his arrival in Gainesville, Bravo sought advice for reuniting with Friman with their mutual friends. One of them, Rosa Felibert, arranged the meeting between Aguilar and Bravo on the day of AguiTuesday. On the stand, Friman read excerpts from Bravos sketchbook, which he uses as a journal. I want her back, please. Ill give anything. Please, please, please No one will stop me I will get out of Miami and into Gainesville by January 2013 and I will get her back She also read from his suicide week in jail. Every day in here is a day spent waiting to die. I am a monster for hurting Chris the way I did and monsters shouldnt exist in this world. I have spent everyday wishing to go back in time, to have taken my life before any of this happened. Suicidal tendencies plagued Bravo, both sides agree. He wrote about it often, and one of his friends, Javihe played the suicide card often. On Sept. 16 and 17, 2012, Bravo made a series of troubling Internet searches, which were shown to the jury during the testimony of Michael Antal, a digital forensics expert who searched Bravos computer. He found searches like what is chloroform, good anesthetic chemicals, how to slice your wrist the right way and why not to commit suicide. Antal also found searches like can rubbing alcohol knock someone out, stats on unsolved murders and how do sleeping pills kill you. In the opening statement, the state showed security footage stills where Bravo was buying a shovel, knife, duct tape and sleeping pills with cash on Sept. 16. Beerbower, who searched Bravos car the day Aguilar was reported he found a Gatorade bottle with no with a powdery white substance. Denise Holmquist, senior crime lab analyst for the Florida DepartWednesday that she tested the substance using a mass spectrometer and gas chromatograph. She found that the powdery substance contained diphenhydramine and Acetaminophen, ingredients commonly found in ZZZQuil and Equate acetaminophen PM, the sleeping pill brands Bravo bought. when he searched Bravos complex, he found Aguilars backpack balled up inside Bravos backpack. It still contained Aguilars wallet, books with his name on them and a dated Sept. 20, 2012. Claudia Aguilar, Christians texted and called her son often, almost daily. Aguilar sent his mom a picture of him smiling, showing off his free received from her son.

Crist pointed to a 2013 study that found Florida women make just 83 cents on the dollar that Florida men make. PolitiFact Florida debunked his claim, citing a more recent study that found women actually make a whopping 84 cents on the dollar, as per a study from April. Furthermore, PolitiFact found, the wage gap in Florida has only decreased 1.8 percent since 1990. ination, certainly, but also the discouraging fact that women and men enter different occupations at different rates. This is known as occupational segregation, i.e. why so many men are software engineers and why so many women are nurses. ers, but seriously, only 2 percent in a quarter of a century? Thats a nightmare. This week, were tossing a get-your-s**ttogether-and-pay-ladies-more DART at the dismal Florida pay gap. The Tampa Bay Times reported this week that early voting in Florida for the primaries is undergoing a serious makeover, with more days and locations and counties. Polls open statewide on Monday, and theyll remain open until Aug. 24 and we better see you there! To close out the summer, were awarding a pre-emptive LAUREL to everyone taking advantage of the early vote. More dismal numbers for this weeks darts: Al Jazeera America reports that 10 percent of cancer survivors gamble with their health by continuing to smoke tobacco after theyve been cured. Survivors of bladder cancer smoke the most tobacco, the study found, followed by lung cancer survivors. Bleak, considering the sheer amount of resources available for individuals to quit smoking these days. We have mixed feelings about this one on one hand, smoking is one of the hardest addictions to overcome, and many survivors do want to quit. But on the other hand, we feel obligated to toss a tough-love DART at the health gamblers who continue to smoke after beating cancer. And last, but certainly not least, our departing threesemester-veteran opinions editor is handing off a specialedition freedom-of-speech LAUREL to the dedicated community of Alligator online commenters. We wont drop usernames, but itd be unfair not to acknowledge the countless minutes you spend telling us what, exactly, is wrong with the Alligator and its writers. A cursory survey of other college newspapers has revealed that the Alligator stands alone in its ability to inspire vitriol in the same handful of anonymous commenters, so we thank ours for standing by us.

Todays question: Did you get the bursars email about losing your direct depost account information?Locals: Pay attention to Plum Creek If youve seen the eastern half of Gainesville, theres no question that we are home to seriously impoverished areas. A lack of quality jobs and economic development keeps the area depressed and few if any local leaders currently hold the key to solving the never-ending crisis. Some Gainesville residents are pinning their hopes to a company who owns more land than anyone else in Alachua County. Sadly, this out-of-state companys promises appear empty. Plum Creek is a large, national company based in Seattle that also happens to own tens of thousands of acres in the eastern portions of Alachua County. After using much of the land for timber farming, Plum Creek wants to sell nearly 20,000 acres of their land to a developer who will subsequently build homes, shopping centers and industrial and commercial developments. Essentially, Plum Creek wants to get thousands of acres that sit on swampland to be rezoned so a developer will buy the land from Plum Creek and put homes and businesses on top of the swamps. This is not a small development. Its a small city in a swamp. If this sounds vaguely familiar, its because developers have done this in south Florida for more than a centhe process. To bolster its case, Plum Creek launched a public relations machine, promising thousands of jobs to those living in east Gainesville never mind how they will get from east Gainesville to the Plum Creek development and new opportunities for the eastern part of the county. better in recent years, but there are still many empty storefronts littering the area. The city of Gainesville is in a much better location to serve as an economic center for those looking for work in east Gainesville. Instead of promising citizens a pie-in-the-sky dewe need to do a better job providing economic opportunities right here in Gainesville. If we have citizens who cant get to jobs and services in the Gainesville city limits, how are we going to get them to eastern Alachua County? Regional Transit System has few routes in east Gainesville, and when was the last time you saw public transportation on the roads of Hawthorne or Windsor? We need a plan for all of Alachua County that makes side of the country. Smart developments that help lift struggling areas out of poverty and ensure our environment is protected are in the best interest of all those living in Alachua County. Citizens in towns across the county have banded together to create a community group called Stand By Our Plan. The group spent the last several months educating Alachua County residents about Plum Creeks plans as well as the countys comprehensive plan. Alachua Countys comprehensive plan was developed with input from individuals and groups throughout the county and helps lay the foundation for positive growth that Plum Creek, on the other hand, wants the county to our friends and neighbors about their proposed city in the We tend to ignore local issues, but Plum Creeks proposed development has enormous implications on the future of Alachua County. The primary election is on Aug. 26, and the Plum Creek issue is one of the hottest issues driving the campaign conversation. Its very likely that the outcome of the primary will determine whether Plum Creek gets its way or whether we, the local residents, win. Educate yourself on the issues, and dont forget to vote. The future of Alachua County depends on it. Joel Mendelson is a UF graduate student in political campaigning. His columns appear on Thursdays.

The company will bring the presentations to the Phillips Center Aug. 25 through Aug. 29. JOEY MARTINEZAvenue WriterEarFilms is coming to UF to give your sense of vision a break. The EarFilms presentation will be held Aug. 25 through Aug. 29 at 7:30 p.m. each night in the Squitieri Studio Theatre in the West Wing of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Amy Douglas, the director of Marketing and Communications for UF Performing Arts, said it is a unique performance in that audience members will not be able to see anything. EarFilms has been described as a sonic storytelling experience for the ears and the imagination, Douglas said. The story that will be narrated, To Sleep To Dream, is about a society where dreaming has been outlawed. that uses no visuals, instead 3-D sound surrounds the listener and places them, and their imaginations, right into the heart of the story, said Daniel Marcus Clark, founding artist of the UK-based EarFilms company and writer, director and narrator of To Sleep To Dream. Clark said he will be narrating the piece live as audience members sit inside with more than 20 loudspeakers surrounding them. They will put on blindfolds and step into a 90-minute experience for their imaginations. The idea grew out of the desire to create a the imaginative potential of literature. Clark said it is also exciting to begin to give sound a storytelling voice it had previously struggled to have in other audio and visual formats that are led either by voice or image. He said he has been exploring this work for about 12 years and that it is inspired by that music and spoken stories could sit together. EarFilms grew out of that work as sound design started to come into the mix. As a company weve now been working have been created, but this is our debut feature piece, Clark said. To get this one right we ended up remaking the piece around four times. though an extract of the show was presented at an art and technology center in New York City a couple of years ago. Were really excited to be coming to the University of Florida, Clark said. Weve heard audiences are great there and always up for exciting new experiences. Douglas said it is a different kind of presentation in that it asks the audience to become a part of the storytelling process. She it not only innovative but hopefully also refreshing and, perhaps, inspiring. allows the audience to create their own, she said. Audience members experiences will be based on what they have created in their imaginations. Total capacity for each performance is small and the intimacy of the house will make the experience seem that much more personal. About 400 people are expectnews, information and entertainment from a variety of sources, Douglas said, EarFilms strips all of that away, asking the audience to rely solely on two elements: sound and their imagination.

A recent UF study, published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, looked to see if labeling an item gluten-free altered consumer perception of the foods taste and nutrition. In a one-day experiment at UF in February, 97 people ate cookies and chips, all gluten-free. Half were labeled conventional. Participants then rated each food on a nine-point scale for how much cording to Caroline Glagola Dunn, a 28-yearold UF food science and human nutrition Ph.D candidate and principal researcher. Consumers didnt perceive nutrition differences between conventional and gluten-free products, which was interesting because when we did a survey at the end of the taste panel we found that 37 percent of our respondents said gluten-free products were healthier than their counterparts, Glagola Dunn said. So although they dont think the products were individually nutritionally different than each other, they thought that gluten-free products were healthier. Thirty-one percent believed gluten-free diets improve overall health, 35 percent believed they improve digestive health and 32 percent felt it would improve their diet. A gluten-free diet is prescribed to those with celiac disease, a digestive and autoimmune disorder that affects about 1 percent of the U.S. population, damaging the lining of the small intestine when foods with gluten are eaten. essential vitamins and minerals, according to Janis Mena, a registered dietitian and nutritionist for UFs Student Health Care Center. Mena said she does not recommend pursuing a gluten-free diet unless it is medically necessary. People with celiac are valid, they really need to be gluten-free. I dont know why anyone else would become gluten-free because people can and should enjoy bread in moderation, Mena said. Meredith Krzys, a 21-year-old UF event management senior, said she gave up gluten for Lent a year and a half ago and hasnt looked back since. I stuck with it because I felt good and I realized I didnt need to eat the things I ate before. It promoted me to essentially a wholefoods plant-based diet, I wasnt eating anything processed, Krzys said. Katelyn Adamson, a 21-year-old UF mathematics senior who was diagnosed with celiac disease in February of 2013, said she doesnt believe people need to become gluten-free to eat healthier. They have to put more in the processed foods to make them consistency wise the same, so most gluten-free foods have more fat or more calories, Adamson said. In fact, youre probably consuming more calories than you were before. Adamson said she is worried that people arent educating themselves properly before undertaking this lifestyle change.Dont be gullible for gluten-free


RIANA MELENDEZAvenue WriterGainesville has more to offer thrift shoppers than some might think.

KELSI & KERI MATWICKAvenue WritersThe Greenes always request for small slices. You can ask them if they would like just a little more, or if they are sure they are full, certainty, I really only want a tiny slice. But a few minutes later, one of them is bound to ask for another slice. Then the round of tiny slices proceeds. This is what we call the Greenes portion. This folktale indicates how serving food apportionment constitutes a kind of communication. Whether serving food in a family setting or at a dinner party, the that accompany the service carry deeper social meaning. Indeed, food serving may sion of the feelings, attitudes and sensitivities of the participants. Offering to share food or the delegation of the last piece on the serving dish are acts of communication, hence The Rhetoric of Portions, Shuman. The sharing of food requires tact and skill in communicating. The rules of conduct accompanying food apportionment carry social meaning, and they may not always be in agreement. Food apportionment in Western civilization was mainly self-service until the end of the 19th century when the host began to serve food and apportion it to guests with careful attention to status. If given inappropriate portions, the guest might be insulted, at times intentionally: In-laws may be given less food than the children or small portions may indicate a critique of the diners waistline. Likewise, the guest has protocol in how to act (be interested in the host, not just the food) and how much to eat. Food left on the dish may be a compliment or may signal wanting more food. Family members also follow dining etiquette with some families developing secret codes in how to act when guests arrived: F.H.B. for Family Hold Back when the guests need more food, L.K.F. for Lick and Keep Forks to ensure there will be one, or M.I.K which designates More in Kitchen. A lone piece of chocolate cake remains. Who gets it? The last piece or the old maid becomes a subject of elaborate negotiations in who should offer and who should accept it. How much food is available, the modesty of fellow table mates, and equality come into the elaborate and subtle politics of dining etiquette.

Before The Waves contains the sugary, sweet lyrics and bouncy production heard in almost every synth pop band these days. The groups laptop-focused beginnings makes itself apparent through the use of catchy synths and cheery effects. The inclusion of live drums and guitar elevate the albums tracks and give it much needed weight. Out of Mind layers an adept guitar solo over the saccharine beats dominating the song. While some of the electronic production grows stale rather quickly, the upbeat grooves of songs like Waves will stay in your head for days. Magic Mans strongest trait comes from frontman Caplows nostalgic singing. His voice, a calming baritone, stylings of classic 80s pop songs. Caplows Man some diversity as well. Caplow goes from from singing downbeat lyrics like But every single day that passes by is making me more dishonest on Too Much to chanting uplifting sing alongs like So cover my skin with your sun-kissed light/Theres the tonal shifts to avoid being inconsistent or hackneyed. While Magic Mans lyricism never falters, the groups overall sound offers only temporary enjoyment. The summery production and Caplows crooning owes largely to many bands and genres that either came before them or continue to work today. Before The Waves represents a ephemeral amalgamation of its many the group will pursue charting more Magic Mans Before The Waves derivative, but fun


TANIMA MEHROTRAAlligator Contributing WriterHeston Dunnam is obsessed with trains. Standing exactly 3 feet tall, wearing with circular glasses with shaded lenses, the 4-year-old looks like a mini Wheres Waldo. His left eye is concealed by a bright yellow bandage covered in red and blue train carts. Our house is covered in train tracks, his mother, Stephanie Dunnam, said. Some parents have to worry about stepping on Legos. We have to worry about stepping on trains and tracks. Dunnam and her family live in Hawthorne, near Highway 301. Trains pass by their house daily, one in front of the house, the other beside it. He just sits by the window and watches them, she said. At 2, Heston was diagnosed with what is now referred to as broad spectrum autism, or Aspergers Syndrome. Equally as deep as his love for trains is his fear of sound and loud noises. Heston is so afraid of loud noises that he often puts on a pair of bright red, soundproof headphones in the evening, to soften the noise of his fathers voice when he comes home from work. Sound is his true enemy, his mother, 42, said. To help her son conquer his fear of sound, Dunnam devised a 30-day, 4,361states and six major railways starting Sept. 15. She advertised her plans for the project, a combination of a self-published book and a calendar of photographs, by creating a page on Kickstarter, an online funding platform that aims to bring creative projects to life through crowdfunding. The page is titled The Lil Engineer That Could, a homage to one of Hestons favorite stories. The project will only be funded if at least $15,000 is pledged by Aug. 19. It is an all-or-nothing deal. As of press time, the project has raised $453, with 12 days left to raise the rest. If the full amount is not raised in time, then the family will have to go back to the drawing board. Dunnam said she hopes to simultaneously capture her sons love for trains and help him conquer his fear of loud noises with the trip but is afraid she wont be around long enough to get it done. She said she has terminal cancer. In 18 months, I probably wont even be able to hold a camera, Dunnam said. She said her ultimate goal is to convince her son to step foot on a train.

MUSCHAMP WILL RALLY THE STUDENTS. GIGI PENAAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF Alumni Association and University Athletic Association have teamed up to host Rally in The Swamp on Aug. 24. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the event starts at 8 p.m. Alicia Longworth, assistant athletics director for the marketing and promotions department at UAA, said a big portion of the event will consist of the UF Marching Band, UF cheerleaders and UF Dazzlers. The football team, some student athletes and coach Will Muschamp will help get students pumped up for the season opener against Idaho. In the concourse on the east side of the stadium, students will be able to play games, win prizes and have their picture taken with Albert and Alberta. punched at three booths will be able to pick up free Dominos Pizza at the concession stands. Were just kind of hoping that the students are excited for Gator football, theyre excited for the opportunity to get into the football stadium just themselves and not have any general fans, Longworth said. Anthony Campanella, a 20-year-old UF nutritional sciences junior, said he is transferring to UF in the Fall and is looking forward to game days. Its hard to come in as a junior and not be able to know the traditions that take place during game day, he said. Im looking forward to this pep rally so that I am able to cheer on the Gators and know the traditions beforehand.Watch the Gators play in the SwampLOCALKickstarter intends to fund memory book

THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG aMarreese Speights arrestedFormer Gators center Marreese Speights was arrested on a second-degree misdemeanor charge Teeing Off RICHARD JOHNSON@RagjUFThere are nine basic forms of energy from kinetic to sound, nuclear to light but running back Kelvin Taylor would like to submit a tenth for your approval. This type of energy is more simplistic and impactful. Just one month ago, the sophomore had the symbol (+) and the word Energy tattooed on his right wrist to symbolize positive energy: the fuel that keeps him going when challenges come his way. For football players, as with all to stay positive in the face of adthrough, expectations to meet and of course losing. Florida had a bit of all three on its way to a disastrous 4-8 season in 2013, but Taylor has found his own way to stay in good spirits even when the game he loves deals him a poor hand. Im always a positive guy and no matter what youve got to be a positive guy so thats why I got positive energy, he said. So thats just one thing I love, positive energy and everybody that I like to hang out with are positive people so thats why I got it. Last year, Taylor was able to stay positive by leaning on his family, his faith in God and good old fashioned hard work combined with a bit of patience that his time would come as the feature back in After teammate Matt Jones went down with a torn meniscus against LSU on Oct. 12, Taylor ran 10 times for 52 yards in Jones absence. He got better as the season progressed and was at his best in Floridas loss at South Carolina on Nov. 16 when he recorded 21 carries for 96 yards and two touchdowns including the second-longest run of his career (29). But it wasnt all success for him. Taylor struggled in pass-blocking situations as well as catching the ball out of the backI could say last year just coming out of high school they really didnt ask you to pass block that much, he said. But in college youve got to be a complete back and youve got to know how to pass block and youve got to know how to catch the ball out of the plete back. To round out his skill set, Taylor has taken extra reps with the JUGS machine after practice and worked on pass blocking drills with offensive tackle D.J. Humphries. He said he has forced those things into his workout plan and because of it Julian Pinilla / Alligator StaffGators running back Kelvin Taylor (No. 21) and wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (No. 11) speak to Kelvin Taylor carries positive energy into second season at UF JORDAN MCPHERSON@J_McPherson1126Ryan Lochte has faced scrutiny during the past year. Between his reality TV show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? being cancelled in September, a torn MCL and sprained ACL in his left knee and a re-aggrevation of his knee at the Mesa Grand Prix in April, Lochte knows what its like for others to doubt him. But he doesnt care. To me it goes through one ear, out the other. I dont pay attention to it, and I cant, or else Id probably quit swimming gold medalist said on Tuesday, the day before the USA National Championships, in Irvine, Calif. But I mean, I feel like theres always a bump in the road for me. Its never a smooth path. I always prepared myself for the worst, and you know, I think this year has been the hardest year Ive ever had in my entire life, just knee surgery, just tearing my knee like left and right, being out of the water for so long. Lochte said his knee is back to 100 percent, and it looked so after competition on Wednesday. (The doctors) said I should be in like a science book because of the way I recovered so quickly. Theyre in shock, Lochte said. Im supposed to be just get-Lochte says he should be in like a science bookG A TORS IN THE NFL LAWRENCE LAGUNA@LagunaLawrenceThe injury that sidelined Dominique Eacareer is currently costing him in the NFL. Easley, who was selected by the New EngDraft in May, is still rehabbing the surgically repaired ACL in his right knee. The former Gators defensive end was expected to miss much of the Patriots camp due to his injury, but the lack of practice forced the team to leave him in Foxboro, Mass., while it travels for joint practices and preseason games. According to the Boston Herald, Easley has not been cleared to play and will stay home while the Patriots and the Washington Redskins hold a joint practice in Virginia. The 6-foot-2, 290-pound defensive end is cleared to participate in New Englands practice on Saturday. Easley partook in the teams minicamp in June and has been restricted to conditioning work during training camp. He is now expected to miss games during the regular season. If he remains on the non-football injury list year. The Patriots are committed to having Easley at 100 percent health and therefore will not rush his recovery. Joe Haden believes Browns defense becoming above average: The Cleveland Browns believe their defense can be very special this season. A leader of that defense is Pro-Bowl cornerback Joe Haden who has led the Browns defensive unit since he was drafted out of Florida in 2010. Haden, who starred on Urban Meyers 2008 national championship squad, has fully bought into Browns head coach Mike Pettine and his defensive focus. Ive never really had a defensive-minded coach before, Haden said. Hes in there for the defensive installs, hes installing our defense for us as the head coach and Ive never had that before. I really like that. Pettine, who was previously the Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator in 2013, accepted Easley not cleared to practice SEE FOOTBALL, PA GE 16Lochte SEE S WIM, PA GE 16 SEE NFL, PA GE 16 Im always a positive guy and no matter what youve got to be a positive guy so thats why I got positive energy.Kelvin TaylorUF running back National Fo otball League


ting back in the water a couple weeks ago, but Ive been in the water for almost two months now. I healed up really quick. In the 100-meter freestyle preliminary heats, Lochte clocked in with a 49.21-second outing, good for eighth overall 48.96 seconds to claim a spot on the national team in the event. His knee held up, but he expects more of himself as the week progresses I cant expect best times, Lochte said. Its going to take time, and I know in the big picture, when it happens, its going to happen. Current Gators competing at National Championships: A total of 25 athletes on Floridas 2014-15 roster and three who graduated in the spring are also competing at nationals, with 20 making their debut in the competition on Wednesday. Elizabeth Beisel and Caeleb Dressel were the highlight of the bunch. Beisel touched the wall in Dressel, the No. 1 recruit in the 2014 class according to, was the fastest current UF athlete in the onds. events the 200-meter freestyle, breaststroke and backand the mens 4x200-meter freestyle and will see 14 UF athletes in the pool. This is a great opportunity for each individual to get some exposure and compete at a high level, UF coach Gregg Troy said in a release. This week will also be a good measure of how everyones training has been going this summer. the Cleveland head coaching posiHaving a head coach that thinks the Browns organization. The new direction has Haden ready to step up his game to an elite level. Haden, who is arguably one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL next to Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson, has ambitions to lead the Browns over the hump of a long-standing losing tradition. season game: Catching footballs from the JUGS pitching machine in practice is normal, but doing it while wearing a walking boot is unusual. Former Gator and current Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper was wearing a pressure boot to protect his right ankle and has been ruled out to play the teams preseason opener against the Chicago Bears on Friday. According to Cooper, his ankle is nothing more than a tweak, but the Eagles are treating it carefully since the teams other top receiver, Jeremy Maclin, has been wearing a boot as well. Cooper has had the nagging ankle injury for about a week, and the Eagles will keep him out for another week or two until he reaches a full recovery. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly doesnt believe Coopers ankle injury is nothing serious and the boot is there as just a preventable thing. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 AP PhotoPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper catches a pass during NFL football training camp on Friday in Philadelphia. Haden all in, Cooper out with injury NFL, from page 15Muschamp: Runs and blocking schemes same as previous systemhe is ready to go. In year No. 2, theres no more thinking for Taylor but merely reading and reacting to situations. New offensive coordinator Kurt Roper has emphasized eye discipline and playing fast during practice. Taylor said the transition from pro-style to up-tempo has been seamless. man, he said. We can play into space, its a downhill offense, its a very explosive offense, you can get a lot of different matchups in that offense so I feel like its going to be a lot of explosive plays and our offense is going to be just explosive this year, were very excited to get things rolling. Taylors head coach agrees. From a standpoint of the run game, the runs are the same and block the same, Will Muschamp said at Florida media day. Their entry angle is a little different and those guys seem to really like what we did in the spring as far as those things are concerned from the (shot)gun. That was a concern going in, but I thought Kelvin had a really good spring. For Taylor and his teammates to reverse theyll need an acute understanding of Ropers offense. That, and maybe just a little bit of positive energy. FOOTBALL, from page 15 SWIM, from page 15Beisel, Dressel also competing at nationals along with Lochte
