After a few yellow cards and with only a few minutes left in the game, the score was Florida 80, Middlebury 70.

EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterStephanie Asselin used to assemble her plastic Christmas tree in her Citrus County home every December. But year after year, the branches got a little more smashed and the scent got a little more musty, so three years ago she made the switch back to live Christmas trees. Theres just something about that smell, the 20-year-old English junior said. This sentiment is something the National Christmas Tree Association wanted to capture through adver tisements promoting the sale of fresh trees. To fund the advertisements, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced earlier this month that it would impose a 15-cent fee on all fresh Christmas trees sold for farms that sell more than 500 trees a year. for taxing Christmas, the department announced last week that it would delay implementation of the Christmas Tree Tax. The fee was originally requested by the National Christmas Tree Association in 2009 to fund research programs and marketing campaigns to promote the purchase of real trees. The ads would have been similar to commodity brand campaigns such as the Got Milk? or Beef: Its whats for dinner advertisements. In a press release, the National Christmas Tree Association said the fee should not change the price consumers pay for their trees; however, price increases were not strictly for bidden. Cathryn Gregory, co-owner of Unicorn Hill Christmas Tree Farm in Gainesville, said she doesnt view the fee as a burden but rather a type of membership dues for the national organization. We have never charged any type of fee to our customers, and we never would, she said. This is just part of doing business. Unicorn Hill Farm, 3605 NW 69th St., opens each year on Dec. 1 and sells about 300 to 400 Christmas trees annually. Since they dont sell more than 500 trees a year, the Gregorys would not have been required to pay the 15-cent fee per tree, but Gregory said she and her husband support the idea. Floridas Christmas tree industry has declined drastically over the past 20 years, she said. The number of people who buy Christmas trees remains roughly the same each year, and as the economy has declined, farms operating costs have increased, making Gregory said many people dont think about the environmental impact of purchasing fake trees. You have to think: What is the carbon footprint of producing that tree? she said. Its almost nonexistent for real trees, but fake trees are usually made in China from petroleum products and then have to be shipped to this country. Unicorn Hill Farm has been open of Christmas trees and is open weekdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and on the weekend from noon to 6 p.m. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5FLORIDA ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterPennsylvania now attracts more international students to its university campuses than does sunny Florida. The Sunshine State has fallen from sixth to seventh place in the number of international students at its universities, according to the 2011 Open Doors report published by the the Institute of International Education. The Keystone State had a 9 percent increase in international students last year, passing Florida, the only state in the top 10 that didnt experience a per centage increase. The report found that the number of international students in Florida increased from 29,708 students dur ing the 2009-10 school year to 29,719 in 2010-11. However, the total number of inter national students in the U.S. increased That increase is largely due to a 23 percent rise in Chinese students studying in the U.S., according to the report. California holds the top spot for hosting the most international students, followed by New York and Texas. UF has the highest number of international students in the state, with 5,393 registered during the 2010-11 year. Jan Sohl, a 22-year-old economics student from Germany, said he chose to study at UF after his friend gave it a good recommendation. I wanted to see the U.S. anyway, he said.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The amount of biodiversity on this planet is truly awe-inspiring. Scientists almost unanimously agree that deforestation directly leads to global climate change. Furthermore, scientists lament loss of biodiversity, particularly with respect to still undiscovered and undocuspecies could hold the key to curing diseases or tion based on Mother Natures diverse creations. People from around the world who are conscientious of the destruction of this important ecosystem commonly cite the Amazon rainforest as the largest and most well-known example of this man-made calamity. Other rainforests also face similar albeit less publicized challenges throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia. The Amazon rainforest, for decades now, has been the modus operandi to blame the evil for eign investors and multinationals who recklessly steal the national resources of this fertile region. od of passing the buck to others far away. But concerned citizens need to take a closer look at the real forces leading to the continued deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. For far too long, the blame for deforestation has been placed on international corporations, as well as other powerful multinational entities such as the Inter national Monetary Fund nomic Cooperation. In the case of Brazil, the pro-nationalist, avidly anti-imperialist Workers Party has been in power for nearly 10 years. Since assuming control of the country, the party has made several key changes. The most notable change has been the systematic and methodical alienation of the IMF and other multinationals operating inside Brazil. In other words, Brazil has become increasingly protectionist economically. One ambitious goal set by the party was the creation of more jobs for Brazilians. As a result, bered in Brazil as a decade of tremendous growth, with extensive construction projects and infrastructure development. increases greenhouse gases much more than fossil fuel emissions do. By far, the largest cause of deforestation in the Amazon rainforest is land clear ing for cattle and livestock. For the past decade, it was estimated that close to 70 percent of all deforestation in the Amazon was for the purpose of cattle ranching. logging, long associated with imperialists, was deemed to be the cause of a mere 2 to 3 percent of all Amazonian deforestation. Add into the equation the fact that Brazilians consume more beef per capita than nearly any other nation worldwide, and a much clearer picture emerges, further clarifying what really is the driving force behind the continued deforestation of the Amazon. In a region that notoriously prides itself on fer vent nationalism and staunch anti-imperialism, it is ironic to see the Amazon rainforest being ravaged not by foreign imperialists, but rather by millions of native mini-imperialists, all of who are taking advantage of the legal system for what they hope will be a better life. The only loser at the end of the day is their own national treasure, pillaged and soon to be exhausted by its own people. Trevor Zakov is a columnist for the Ka Leo O Hawaii at the University of Hawaii-Manoa. Blame natives for deforestation of Amazon Trevor ZakovUWire UWireL ike many, I remember Election Day 2008 as one of unusual euphoria. I was at the College Democrats party in Currier dining hall when I heard Ohio had been called for Obama, clinching the election, and promptly started celebrating like Id never celebrated before. I tried unsuccessfully to remember my mothers cellphone number and ended up screaming WE ELECTED OBAMA to some poor Maine woman. I ran to Winthrop to meet up with old intern friends from Obamas primary campaign, amazed that we had even gotten to the gener al election, let alone won it. I may have had a little bit to drink. It was a good time. So I understand, in light of the still-stagnant economy are disappointed. Obamas victory was emotionally meaningful and, given the huge expectations that win set, discontent is inevitable. But the right takeaway, I think, is not that Obama is a failure, but that major change is really hard, especially in America, especially for the president and especially now. Suppose that the United States had a parliamentary system, the kind in place in most of the developed world. Lets suppose the U.S. had no president or Senate, that the Speaker of the House operated as a de facto prime ministhat the House, under Speaker Nancy Pelosi, passed capcare bill with a public option, its fair to say that Speaker Obama would have gotten that done as well. He also likely could have passed initiatives that Pelosi didnt take up because she assumed the Senate would just kill them. Perhaps he would have passed more stimulus have done what all parliamentary leaders with majorities do: use the power voters gave him to pass his whole agenda. But instead of a parliament, the U.S. has a system that is designed to prevent government policy from fully relearned in high school civics, were deathly afraid of actual democracy and put plenty of veto points (the president, the Senate, the Supreme Court, etc.) in the Constitution so as to prevent it. That Obama could not have pushed through his whole agenda, like leaders of other developed democracies can, is not his fault. Its James Madisons. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson pass major legislation under these same constraints? Yes, but they had two other things going for them. For one thing, their congressional majorities were enormous compared to Obamas. In 1935, when Roosevelt signed Social Security into law, there were 72 Democrats in the Senate. In 1965, when Johnson signed the bill creating Medicare, there were 68 Senate Democrats. Obama, by contrast, had at most 60 Senate Democrats to work with and only 59 by the time healthcare reform passed. Whats more, Obama has had to deal with a de facto 60vote supermajority requirement that only emerged in the past few years. Roosevelt and Johnson had to deal with a but it was only with Mitch McConnells emergence as Senate Minority Leader in 2007 that the procedure began to it was only really used to delay civil rights legislation. Indeed, when Johnson was whipping votes for Medicare, his legislative strategists did not even consider the possibility an idea. If youre going to be disappointed with someone be disappointed with the Republicans and moderate Democrats in Congress who derailed Obamas agenda. Talia B. Lavin, [a disappointed student quoted in a recent Harvard Crimson article], regrets that Obama has not done more to cur tail continual expansion of the power of the presidency. tually led to an expansion of Congress power and a diminishing of the presidents. And with great power, as SpiderMans Uncle Ben reminds us, comes great responsibility. Mitch McConnell may not be one of us, but he is a person with moral agency. Liberals should start treating him like one. We can argue for days over what Obama could have done differently, but theres no question there was plenty that Congress could have done differently. To respond to the policy failures McConnell and his allies create by blaming Obama is to enable Republicans and Congresss effort to duck responsibility for their actions. Dylan R.

ACTIVISM THE ASSOCIATED PRESSOAKLAND, Calif. Police decked in riot gear and armed with tear gas cleared out Oaklands anti-Wall Street encampment early Monday, the latest law enforcement crackdown amid complaints around the country of health and safety hazards at protest camps. The raid at the Occupy Oakland camp, one of the largest and most active sites in the movement, came a day after police in Portland, Ore., arrested about 50 people while shutting down its camp amid complaints of drug use and sanitation issues. Police in Burlington, Vt., also evicted protesters after a man fatally shot himself last week inside a tent. Police staged a previous raid on the Oakland encampment on Oct. 25, but Mayor Jean Quan allowed protesters to re-establish their tent city. On Monday, however, Quan the problems posed by the camp. We came to this point because Occupy Oakland, I think, began to take a different path than the original movement, Quan said. The encampment became a place where we had repeated violence and, last week, a murder. We had to bring the camp to an end before more people got hurt. Demands increased for Oakland protesters to pack up after a man was shot and killed Thursday near the encampment at the City Hall plaza. Protesters claimed there was no connection between the shooting the slain man as Kayode Ola Foster, 25, of Oakland, saying his family the plaza. Witnesses also told police that one of two suspects in the shooting had also been a frequent resident at the plaza. Mondays raid came as no sur prise to protesters after the city issued its fourth order to abandon the Oakland Police Department and seven other law enforcement agencies moved in around 5:30 a.m., ar resting 32 people and tearing down about 150 tents. a success, saying all arrests were peaceful, and there were no reportPolice said those taken into custody likely will face charges of unlawful assembly and lodging. situation, Quan said.

THE PROPOSAL WILL BE PUT ON THE 2012 BALLOT. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Some Florida lawmakers are having second thoughts about a property tax-cutting proposal the Legislature put on the November 2012 ballot. On Monday the Senate Community Affairs Committee approved a replacement for the proposed state constitutional amendment that would offer more tax relief for homeowners but less for businesses. The panels chairman, Sen. Mike Bennett, said he dislikes the current version, listed as Amendment 4, because its homeowner provision would cut taxes only for those who havent bought a home in the past three years. This pertains to all buyers and all property, and I think its a much better Bennett, R-Bradenton. The new proposal (SJR 314) sponsored by Sen. David Simmons, R-Maitland, drew opposition from business interests because it is less generous to commercial taxpayers. Either version would be in addition to the long-standing Save Our Homes Amendment. It caps assessment increases for primary homes, known as homesteads, at 3 percent annually. Voters in 2008 also adopted an amendment that caps assessment increases for businesses and other non-homestead properties at 10 percent. Amendment 4 would reduce the nonhomestead limit to 5 percent. Simmons proposal would make it 7 percent as a compromise with the Florida Association of Counties. Davin Suggs, a lobbyist for the association, said reducing the non-homestead cap would increase the pressure on local make up for the revenues theyd lose. The non-homestead cap is in response to the Save Our Homes Amendment that began shifting the tax burden toward businesses and away from homeowners after it was adopted in the 1990s. Save Our Homes also has caused inequities among homeowners. People who have owned their homes for many years pay much lower taxes than those who recently have bought houses of the same value. We are in fact penalizing new home ownership, Simmons said.State Senate panel OKs revised tax-relief proposal THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE A panel that included legal experts, academics and lawmakers on Monday renewed a push for changes to try to make Floridas death penalty more just and prevent innocent people from being executed. Participants views about their chances of success ranged from hopeful to despairing in a state that leads the nation with 23 death row inmates who have been exonerated this year It seems to be a problem that may not be able to be solved, said former State Attorney Harry Shorstein of Jacksonville. What the public doesnt understand is how expensive this litigation has been over the years. Shorstein, who participated by telephone, supports the death penalty but said hes trouits problems. Florida State Universitys law school sponof an American Bar Association study that criticized the states death penalty procedures and made a number of recommendations. One was that juries be unanimous in recommending death sentences. Florida is the only death penalty state that lets juries make sentencing decisions or recommendations by nal say but must give great weight to jury recommendations. For a second year, State Sen. Thad Altman is sponsoring a bill (SB 772) that would require well as death sentence recommendations. His legislation failed without so much as a committee hearing earlier this year. Im hoping ... we can at least get a hear ing, the Viera Republican told other panel members. I dont think thats asking too much. The panels moderator, Mark Schlakman, senior program director at Florida States Center for the Advancement of Human Rights, was more optimistic. Schlakman noted the new bill would apply only to crimes committed after Oct. 1, 2012. Prosecutors had been worried about it being retroactive to existing cases. Also, since the last legislative session, U.S. District Judge Jose E. Martinez in Miami has ruled Floridas death sentence law is unconstitutional because jury recommendations dont have to be unanimous. The state is appealing. Irrespective of where the appeal goes, it under scores the concern about that process, Schlakman said in an interview. Some lawmakers have opposed changes because they were afraid that might result in more appeals. Martinez ruling shows the opposite may be the case, Schlakman said. He is hopeful Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican before last year, will be receptive. Gov. Scott approaches issues, whether one agrees or disagrees with his policy, with a fresh look and an open mind without having had much in the way of political background on these issues and tends to look at issues in general within the context of business practices, Schlakman said.Legal experts look to change Floridas death penalty policyScott We are in fact penalizing new home ownership.Sen.

UF v. FSU Time AnnouncedFloridas annual rivalry game with Florida State on Nov. 26 will be broadcast on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. The game will be played at home in The Swamp.

Muschamp expects Roberson to ting up a return in time for spring practice.

He has topped the Gators cor nerback depth chart since the opening week and shadowed Alshon Jeffery throughout Saturdays contest with South Carolina, holding the All-America wideout to two catches for 17 yards. With Roberson out, Muschamp said UF will lean on sophomore Jaylen Watkins, who has started each of the last three weeks, and sophomore Cody Riggs, who started the teams claimed the role.

and an elite training program, Muschamp should be given one other resource: time. At least three years. Look at the 10 active coaches in BCS conferences with the highest winning per centages who have coached at least three coaches combined to go 58-50 (see chart). The other coach is Nick Saban, who went 9-2 at Toledo in 1990 before bolting for a defensive coordinator gig with the Cleveland Browns. Going 6-6 in the regular season a lock for Florida would put Muschamp doesnt suggest the Gators coach will be one of the best in the nation.

But Zook didnt improve in year No. 2, and he was gone by the end of his third season. We dont know Muschamps fate yet. Nobody does. Not the players. Not Muschamp. Not Athletic Director Jeremy Foley. Foley, of course, knows better than anyone the depression of an era like Zooks. knows patience, though only a proper amount. Muschamp hasnt proven himself, obviously. Not even close. But, for now, be patient. For now. If you still want to grab your pitchfork at this point next year, though, I certainly wont be the one stopping you.

I just worked on posting up more and wanting the ball, George said. I was just trying to own the paint, Georges performance comes on the heels of a one-shot, threerebound effort in Floridas 69-66 season-opening loss to Michigan on Friday. When Butler saw George barely made a mark on the stat sheet, she planned on having Florida (1-1) focus on getting the ball into the paint Monday. [George] knew Fridays effort was not her best, and she accepted that, Butler said. Thats a hard to thing to do, to say, My bad, yall. Im better than that. While George was nearly nonexistent in the Gators loss to the Wolverines on Friday, senior guard Deana Allen didnt play after suffering a concussion in practice Nov. 6. But Allen returned to the lineup against Stetson and provided a much-needed offensive spark. She played 19 minutes, scoring 11 points and grabbing eight rebounds. Allen and George were the only I was hyped all over again, Allen said. [Monday] was my actual rest of my teammates. UF fared much better offensively Monday, making 28 of 60 shots for a 46.7 shooting percentage. However, the struggles from 3-point range continued, as the Gators connected only once in 10 tries. The best thing about that stat is the 10 part, Butler said. The improvement was recognizing, Heres whats not working, so lets quit doing that. tested 20 minutes, as the Gators and Hatters exchanged the lead 10 times and were tied on four different occasions. However, Stetsons 30-29 halftime lead would prove to be their last advantage of the night. Florida started the second half on an 8-0 run, pulling ahead 37-30 with 18:06 remaining. Sophomore forward Kayla Lewis sparked the spurt, scoring six points and registering a steal to help put UF ahead for good. time and get out ahead of the transition defense, its really hard to guard, Butler said. I was proud of Kayla and the whole team of the way we came out of the locker room for the second half. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15David Carr / AlligatorJunior forward Jennifer George scored a career-high 21 points and grabbed nine rebounds Monday in Floridas 71-57 win against Stetson. RECRUITINGGeorge powers Florida past Stetson FLORIDA IS NATIONS MOST PENALIZED TEAM. TOM GREENAlligator Staff WriterThe Gators have a problem, and coach Will Muschamp is going to great lengths to try to solve it. With 8.3 penalties per game, Florida is the most penalized team in the nation not the kind of title Muschamp was hoping for in his Weve emphasized it as much as we can, Muschamp said Monday. Were exhausting every measure lem). The team pumps crowd noise into practice every day and uses hard counts against the defense probably once every two to three snaps, but Muschamp is also getting creative to try to curb the Gators penalty woes. He said the team has made shirts with the phrase Hard Count printed on them to emphasize staying onside. Coaches are even sending text message to players to ingrain the mantra into their minds. Were trying everything, Muschamp said. Were just trying to emphasize it a different way. Thats all were trying to do. While the national ranking in penalties hasnt altered since the calendar turned to November, the Gators have shown signs of improvement. In two November contests, Florida has penalties against Vanderbilt and South Carolina, respectively, for a total of 47 yards. UF has decreased its aver per outing in November. The teams average penalty yards per game has dropped from 70.88 after the loss to Georgia, which put UF at 115th nationally, to 61.4 tied for 93rd. Although the numbers are down considerably from earlier in the season, the Gators are still committing penalties in crucial situations, like defensive tackle Dominique Easleys offside penalty on third-and-2 late in the game that extended the Gamecocks clock-killing drive. Defensive end Sharrif Floyd attributed the problems to a lack of focus, but Muschamp said it also has to do with Florida making such mistakes before, givprepare and make the Gators force the same errors. Were going to continue to do a better job; were not doing a good job, obviously, Muschamp said. When you see us jump offsides, everybody else says, Thats a pretty good idea, lets try that.

PETERSBURG Dante Fowler Jr. could be considered either one of high school footballs biggest question marks or one of its boldest exclamation points. At 6-foot-3, 232 pounds, Fowler carries the title of the nations No. 1 defensive end recruit, according to Rivals.com. Beneath the evasive faade and tough bravado, though, is just an 18-year-old with a soft voice and a wide-toothed smile and an easily ignited temper. Fowler was ejected from a game and served a one-game suspension from the Florida High School Athletic Association. Then, in early September, according to the St. Petersburg Times, a growing tension between Fowler and his coaches at St. Petersburg Lakewood High was detonated by one maverick play. Fowler, frustrated by being double teamed in Lakewoods season opener against Seminole High, went rogue and recorded a sack despite orders from his coaches to remain inside. Then came a four-week suspension from coach Cory Moore. Against St. Petersburg High on Friday night, Fowler also got into trouble, beginter which he taunted the offensive lineman he had pushed around. He was also involved in a dispute involving a few players from both teams on the St. Petersburg sideline after a player was pushed out of bounds. Yeah, I get out of line a lot, Fowler said, but Im going to have to practice on that in college. a senior season in which Fowler has failed to meet expectations and his own goals. Before the season, Fowler had set a goal of 25 sacks. Instead, he watched his team go 5-0 from afar before rejoining the squad that has now ended its season on a 1-4 note. Fowler ripped off his helmet nearly every time his cleats crossed the Lakewood sideline Friday night, often throwing it to the ground in irritation. For a defensive lineman heralded for his pass-rushing ability and knack for disrupting offenses, Fowler seemed to consistently be the far thest Lakewood defender from the ball. He recorded just one and a half tackles before halftime and capped the sisted tackles. He was also pulled out for a few fourth-quarter plays and later reinstated at tackle. Its a tough loss, Fowler said. The whole season, teams have been scheming against me but Im glad I made it through my senior season, all four years with not like a real bad injury. Im ready to take it to the next level. He has been a soft oral commit to FSU since last December. After stating he would keep everyone guessing until National Signing Day on Feb. 1, he retracted comments about taknia, LSU and Clemson during a trip to Tallahassee last weekend. Fowler was originally scheduled to the Vanderbilt game two weeks ago before It is unclear whether he still plans to attend UFs game against FSU on Nov. 26. Oral commitments are non-binding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1, 2012.No. 1 defensive end recruit Fowler dealing with discipline issuesFowler

him reminds me of a throwback guy of a long, long time ago. You have guys that are really big and strong, but he understands how to use his size. In last seasons matchup, Sullinger and Young, both highly touted freshmen at the time, had an opportunity to showcase their skills to a national audience. Sullinger clearly took advantage of the spotlight and went on to have an AllAmerica season while Young saw the court for just 12 minutes in the game. I just thought I could go in there and could compete against him, because Ive done it in AAU before, Young said. I thought, My times going to come when I get the chance to just play against this guy again, hopefully, one day. Now, as UFs focal point in the paint, the 6-foot-9, 247-pound Young does not have to worry about playing time Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio. He will face the tall task of trying to slow down Sullinger with a different approach than departed seniors Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin used. The gameplan is to keep him off the boards, not let him get anything easy, Young said. Hes a good player. Hes going to score a few points here and there, but dont let him get anything easy. Half of Sullingers rebounds in the previous matchup came on the offensive glass, and he was able dunk seven times. Rebounding has been a concern for Donovan through Floridas exgame. With more depth at guard than in the post, he is expecting UFs perimeter players to have a larger role. That will be a big factor in the game: our rebounding, junior guard Kenny Boynton said. Both teams will miss shots. ... Sometimes itll just be (Sullinger) and four other guys down there, and he comes down with the rebound. While the Buckeyes did lose three seniors, including 6-foot-5 swingman David Lighty, who also scored 26 points against the Gators, OSU returns a strong core in shooting guard William Buford and point guard Aaron Craft. Like Floridas Young, both are on the Naismith and Wooden Award Watch Lists for Player of the Year. Were just going to try to contain (Sullinger) but let him have what he wants, Boynton said. But other than that, try to contain the other players and not let the other players have big games also.

I cant remember in our tenure here somebody [emerging] that way, Wise said. Against LSU and Arkansas, Mann, 6-foot-1, put on two of the better individual per formances in Florida history. First, she used a size advantage against the Tigers middle blockers on Friday night en route to the second-highest sinNCAA history by a player with 20 or more attempts. Mann had 18 kills on 20 swings for a .900 hitting percentage. In Sundays game, Mann broke the UF record for points and kills by a middle blocker since 25-point rally scoring began, both marks she previously set match, Mann had 19 kills Fridays game was the best overall hitting performance by a Gator since 2002, when AllAmerica middle blocker Benavia Jenkins had 12 kills on 13 attempts against UCF. Manns recent playing time has come at the expense of senior middle blocker Cassandra Anderson, who carried a starting role since midway through her freshman year. Before Flor idas Oct. 30 game against Kentucky, Mann had taken just 14 swings in seven Southeastern Conference appearances In her new starting job, Mann has been given a larger offensive role than either of her middle blocker teammates. During the weekend, Mann averaged 6.2 swings per set. In comparison, Betsy Smith and Anderson have averaged 2.95 and 3.14 this year, respectively. Her contact point is very different from Betsy and Cassandras, Wise said. Its way up there. Its easier to set, but its different. On Sunday, Anderson saw Kentucky match but played a support role in comparison to middle blocker to be named SEC Offensive Player of the Week since 2007. Cassandra has been Chloes greatest ally, Wise said. Ive never been more proud of Cassandra than how shes handled the past couple weeks and especially how she came in and played [Sunday].Mann goes from backup to UF starMann
