4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2012Benjamin S. Brasch / Alligator Staff bankruptcy following an aggressive legal maneuver by the companys lender. THE COMPANY FILED ON SEPT. 12. KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterFor Leighann Bellew, Piccadilly cafeteria on Northwest 13th Street was the go-to place for good chocolate cake. But on Sunday, the 13th Street location closed its doors for good, leaving the 21-year-old UF theater senior without her devils food cake. for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Sept. 12 after an aggressive legal maneuver by the companys lender, Atalaya Capital Management, according to a press release. Piccadilly, founded in 1944, has about 80 restaurants throughout the Southeast, the release stated. When it comes to our team members and guests, closing a Piccadilly restaurant is the last option that we want to consider, said regional manager Frank Frantom in a statement. However, it is necessary to ensure a continuation of the Piccadilly brand. Frantom said the company will try to place employees from the 13th Street location at other Piccadilly restaurants. Mark Rush, a UF economics professor, said Piccadilly is no exception to the tough restaurant economy. Its always a hard time being in the restaurant business, he said, and its been harder in the last few years. From the time a student enters UF as a freshman to the time of graduation, Rush said that rescant change because restaurants come and go. For Bellew, Piccadillys end is a sad one. Its not like I went there all the time, she said, but it was a nice place to go.Piccadilly closes 13th Street location due to bankruptcyC AMPUS COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents will raise awareness of bullying during the Unity Day Rally and March Against Bullying on Wednesday. Marchers should gather at the northwest corner of Southwest 13th Street and West University Avenue at 4 p.m. After the one-mile march east to the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, the rally will begin at 5:30 p.m. The rally is sponsored by the local River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding in partnership with the national Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights. Bullying shapes young people so easily, said Heart Phoenix, board president of River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding. We hope to end bullying this year. The rally will feature several speakers such as Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe, Gainesville Chief of Police Tony Jones and county school board members, as well as musical guest Dani Shay from the California anti-bullying campaign group Be More Heroic. Phoenix hopes that about 150 people will attend. The organization invited several schools in the county as well as other community organizations. The organization offers mediation services, diversity training, anger management courses and more, according to its website. Gators for Alternative Dispute Resolution, a Levin College of Law organization that focuses on mediation, will co-sponsor the rally. Marchers will wear orange shirts, which is the color for bully prevention awareness. October is National Bullying Prevention Month. We think that bullying is a cor nerstone to kids who feel disempowered, Phoenix said. SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reached a tally Monday of more than 100 people infected with fungal meningitis, though Florida has remained relatively unaffected. The disease, which has been linked to tainted steroids, has infected four Floridians and killed eight others across the country. You dont want to get any infection in the skull, said Wolfgang Streit, a UF neuroscience professor. It could lead to compression of vital centers in the brain that could cause a person to die. Methylprednisolone acetate, the type of steroid used in the infected samples, is used to treat back and neck pain. The New England Compounding Center, which made the steroids in question, recently issued a voluntary recall of the drug. Paul Myers, administrator of the Alachua County Health Department, said there have been no cases of the disease in Alachua County and said he isnt aware of any tainted steroids in the county. He said all the doctors who have used the steroid in the past few months have been told to get in contact with any patients who were injected with the drug. He said its important to make sure these types of drugs are created in a sterile environment, especially because theyre injected into the spine. This is clearly a case of carelessness, Streit said.

The event marked the 11th anniversary of the U.S. invasion into Afghanistan, said 20-year-old history junior Skye Schmelzer. As one of the events lead organizers, Schmelzer rallied with other student members of the organization to remove U.S. troops from Afghanistan and prevent other U.S. imperialism in Syria. The U.S. has been in the Middle East for too long, Schmelzer said. She said she believes that countries in the Middle East have the right to self-determination, and the U.S. should not interfere. Chrisley Carpio, another lead organizer, reiterated the national demand for self-determination. The 20-year-old history junior also emphasized the need to end drone strikes. Carpio said drone attacks are responsible for many deaths in the Middle East. People view what goes on in the Middle East as an isolated pattern, she said. At the end of the rally, students proudly raised their anti-war signs and shouted. I know my voice matters, Schmelzer said.The voice of the people matter, and we can make anything happen.About 50 to 100 participants can interact at the same time will be able to join other avatars in an online classroom, which could look like anything from a traditional learning space to a life-size model of a Grecian theater. Distance units are the same in the vir tual classroom and the real world, so taking a step forward on camera translates to a step of the same size online. Avatars can also interact with virtual objects. Barmpoutis said the Virtual Distance Learning Classroom had some physical barriers, such as network connections, with large classroom sizes. Currently, the system can stream about 50 to 100 participants interacting at once. But just because a student might not be shown during the entire class doesnt mean they cant inter mittently participate, Barmpoutis said. You can have thousands of students watching the instructor but not participating, he said. In this scenario, a student would appear upon raising his or her hand. For Michelle Roca, a 19-yearold sophomore accounting major, waiting to be seen wouldnt be a problem. She said the virtual class the current format of online video lectures. There would be more studentteacher interaction, she said.

ROSA LLAMOAlligator Contributing WriterThis year, the Asian American Student Unions monthlong heritage celebration will brighten the lives of the underprivileged. The organization kicked off its 19th annual Asian Kaleidoscope Month celebrations Oct. 2. The celebrations, which will center around the theme of Illuminate, will include community service opportunities, entertainers, fashion shows, lectures, panels and workshops. The monthlong celebration, which will end Nov. 2, aims to raise $2,000 for A Liter of Light, a project that brings portable lighting to low-income homes across the globe. We are dedicated to shedding light on various Asian and Asian-American issues, and their project is dedicated to bringing light into the lives of millions, said Michael Satyapor, an economics senior and assistant director for Asian Kaleidoscope Month. All of the events show the different sides of AsianAmericans, said Sabrina Chan-Pong, a 21-year-old UF marketing senior and coprogramming director for the event series, so people that come out can see that were more than just the stereotypes. The month is set up with ing ceremony, a scholarship pageant, a fashion show, a talent show, an Asian food festival and a closing ceremony. The opening ceremony had about 300 attendees, ChanPong said. There are nine smaller events throughout the month, including a day of community service with Habitat for Humanity and an LGBTQ panel. For the kickoff, the Asian American Student Union brought several well-known Asian-American entertainers to UF, including Ryan Takemiya, founder of a PanAsian arts-and-entertainment organization called RAMA, Seattle-based band New Heights and Kelly Tsai, an Asian-American spoken-word artist from Brooklyn. This is an amazing oppor tunity for everyone at UF to meet these people, hear their stories and hear how diverse our community is, she said.

Each month, from September to April, Zipcar gives away $5,500 in credits to university or ganizations that win the contest. Each runner-up organization will receive $1,000 in Zipcar credits. For the month of September, the Students with Drive program had winners. Zipcar representative Bill Connolly said the Zipcar credits can be used for group memberships to join Zipcar or pay for driving hours in a Zipcar. UF AMA president and advertising senior Jennifer Cephus said the application process consisted of liking the Zipcar page on about AMA, uploading an AMA promotional video and receiving the most Facebook votes for the contest. University organizations can apply within seven categories: academics, arts, athletics, community service and student life. UF AMA applied through the academic category. Zipcar is a huge deal for us, said Cephus, 21. Now we can get out there and do anything and everything we set out to do. Cephus said with the $5,500 credits, AMA members plan to use Zipcars to travel to the AMA 2013 International Collegiate Conference in New Orleans. The Students with Drive pro2011.

JENNIFER GARCIAAlligator Contributing WriterAn exhibit featuring photographs taken of America and Europe between the world wars opens at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art today. The Modern Impulse covers the years between 1918 and 1945 and emphasizes more than 40 artists who captured the age by using technology, according to the Harns website. I think this is an opportunity to look at our own time through the lens of the past, curator of contemporary art Kerry Oliver-Smith said. Oliver-Smith, who has worked at the museum for 21 years, spent more than a year putting together this exhibit from the Harns ar chives as a way to connect students and the community to history. This was when the camera was such a new innovation, its almost what the Internet is to us now, she said. About 135 photographs, books, will be on display, according to the website. Tami Wroath, director of mar keting and public relations, said she hopes faculty members bring their students. The museums goal is to share what we have in our collection and to let people know that art is for everyone, Wroath said. We have over 8,300 works of art, and many of the pictures from this exhibit are coming from our collection. The Modern Impulse will run until Jan. 6. Admission is free.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Sunday night marked the hotly contested presidential elections for Venezuela, a country that has been under the rule of Hugo Chavez since 1999. Critics thought the election was pointless, fraudulent and controlled by the current government. Some voters were skeptical about the validity of their votes and if the election would be legitimate. Those who support the opposition and planned to vote for Henrique Capriles Radonski wondered whether Chavez could be taken down democratically. Despite these sentiments, millions of people headed to the polls to have their voices heard. They didnt let the incredulity of others stop them from practicing their civic duty even if this meant having to drive for 18 hours, which is exactly what some people did. In January, Chavez shut down the Venezuelan consulate in Miami, which is home to the largest concentration of expatriates in the U.S. Critics saw this as an attempt to keep nearly 20,000 registered voters from casting their votes. the next closest diplomatic outpost, more than 800 miles away. Organizers of AeroVotar, a act the voting blockade, raised enough money to rent six planes for the election. More than 1,200 leans. Those who didnt make the projects waiting list were directed to VotoDondeSea, a similar project busing people to the polls. People went above and beyond to cast their votes in a questionable election where some speculated foreign votes arent even tallied. Those who distrust the elections acknowledgment of venience seemed a small price to pay for a monumental vote. Their determination inspires but also infuriates me because it increases my annoyance toward peers who are skipping out on our own presidential election. How, pray you, are we the more developed country when educated people are too lazy to vote? When students prefer staying in and watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to practicing a legal right? We should take notes from the Venezuelan constituents who didnt take their rights for granted. We should look up to those who voted in the South American election and follow suit. I wish my uninterested friends realized how accessible voting is for them. I wish they realized not everyone could vote. (Ill be taking my U.S. citizenship exam Thursday afternoon, so I wont make the voter registration deadline.) Most of all, I wish they realized Im not informed enough is not an excuse. Every time I hear that phrase, I feel like punching a wall. Get informed! I scream inside my head.

With 63 voting stations in Alachua County and early voting possibilities, Gainesville peeps should have no voting limitations. If eligible U.S. voters give half the effort Venezuelan monumental. Regardless of the outcome, the Venezuelan constituents knew they gave it a shot. Valeria Delgado is a journalism senior at UF. Contact her at opinions@alligator.orgUS voters could learn from Venezuelan votersGuest columnValeria DelgadoSpeaking Out Since the advent of second-wave feminism in the 1960s, the mainstream feminist movement has suffered a disquieting decline in popularity. 24 percent of American women identify themselves as feminists. Among men, numbers are even more disheartening: Only 14 percent of the American male population identithe term as an insult. movement whose primary aims are so innocuous. I doubt that feminisms detractors would oppose the elimination of institutionalized gender inequalities or endorse the objectifying practices that underlie a culture of rampant sexual assault. It is equally unlikely that these self-proclaimed antifeminists would champion the glass ceiling, defend employment discrimination or speak out on behalf of domestic abuse. What, then, could possibly account for the recent wave of hostility toward the feminist position a position whose goals are so uncontroversial by most modern standards? People see feminism as a knocking down of men rather than a convergence of the two genders, one male, who asked to remain anonymous, said. Furthermore, J.P. Harrington explained that he is not a feminist because he perceives the movement as having largely strayed from self-determination and independence to arguing for These anecdotal reports lend credence to what I have long suspected that most opposition to feminism derives from a complete misunderstanding of what the movement actually entails. Backlash against the feminist position is not a response to the arguments and ideas presented in feminist literature or womens and gender studies classrooms, but rather, a response to the caricatures of feminism that riddle popular culture. According to common logic, the feminist is an unshaven, combative creature intent on the utter destruction of that males face in our society, and she is self-righteously indignant at every opportunity. Although she is quick to blame individual men for the long history of chauvinism plaguing the Western world, she remains incredibly resistant to engaging in even a cur sory examination of her own role in the process of female marginalization. Even the most favorable popular portrayals of feminists still tend to represent them as aggressive, abrasive and unappealingly sanctimonious. Such a characterization could not be more misleading. Although the term feminism refers to a diverse array of stances and intellectual advocacies, there is widespread consensus among feminists that the goal of the movement nism is not so much a commitment to a certain set of beliefs as it is a commitment to general inquiry and dialectic. dith Butler are less wedded to any particular account of the world than they are to presenting challenges to unquestioned cultural conventions. Much of the criticism levied against feminism relies on the unfounded assumption that feminists ignore mens ising them. In point of fact, most contemporary feminists are quite sympathetic to the male plight. From a feminist perspective, female oppression and male oppression arise from the same central source: the series of social expectations that conspire to create gender roles. The chauvinism responsible for the suppression of women is bound up with the very same cultural structures that demand cer tain behaviors from men. The notion that women should be demure, sentimental and delicate is closely related to the corresponding notion that men should be strong, stalwart and reserved. Consequently, any discussion of gender norms that fails to address mens issues is miserably incomplete. Feminism is nothing if not cautious when it comes to assigning responsibility and blame indeed, many tomes have been dedicated to an examination of womens hand in their own subjugation, a consequence of the internalization of sexist ideologies. The position is not antimen it is merely anti-patriar chy and reasonably so. The myth of the dogmatic, hysterical feminist is one more attempt to silence the feminine voice and discredit the female point of view. The assumption implicit in such accounts is that women could only oppose their own oppression by assuming an unreasonable posture, an assumption that smacks of familiar stereotypes and prejudices.

The 38-year-old former All-SEC offensive guard sits as the sun rises and listens to the rustling of deer. He waits and worries. Nowadays, between fretting about tangled pigtails and preschool classes, Youngs biggest fear is a The noseeum, named for being so small that you cant see um, is Youngs 3-millimeter menace. rhagic disease, or EHD, which is fatal to the white-tailed deer that roam his ranch, DY Trophy Ranch. Aside from his wife and children, he said his life revolves around deer, and EHD is an epidemic that threatens that life. When it occurs, its devastating to the white-tailed deer population, Phillip Kaufman, a UF associate professor of veterinary entomology, said. This year in Florida, were having a bigger outbreak. Young, president of the Florida Deer Association, said EHD has affected herds of white-tailed deer for eons, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released a notice in September asking hunters to report incidences of the disease. Their chance of survival is 50-50 at best, but its really about 70-30. Another problem is that when the meat starts to decompose, the virus dies. All evidence is gone within 24 hours. ly. Young patrols his ranch every day to check on the hundreds of deer that roam the property. His daughter Kaley, 6, and her 5-year-old sister, Kinsey, ride with their dad to his ranch when the weather is cool. Sometimes he lets Kaley take the wheel of the Polaris Ranger offroader. Standing up at the wheel, she nearly disappears behind her boots still stand out. When they come across a deer that looks sick, he mixes a medicine cocktail and loads it into his air gun. Young said its tough to tell the difference between an unhealthy deer and one with EHD. Their show through their skin from malnourishment, their heads droop and saliva drips from their mouths. He shoots the sick deer with the antibiotic dart and waits a few days. When they have EHD, they rarely get better. Instead of a dart, youd almost rather give them a bullet, he said. Its better than having them suffer. One of the biggest problems about monitoring the disease is the deer can die within hours of being infected. Sometimes death can take weeks, but its usually within a couple of days. Were looking for help to keep monitoring this, Kevin Baxter, the spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said. When a deer gets the disease, areas in its neck and head swell, and it will thicket of oaks, pines and palms, there are plenty of places to hide, even from an experienced hunter like Young. that have been affected. Theyll try lakes. He said losing deer to disease isnt just sad its costly. Some of the deer used for breeding can fetch up to $500,000. He said the disease is brought up ciations meetings, where they discuss things like the cost of feed and herd health. When EHD hits, its often seen where deer populations are high, Kaufman said. An individual farmer may lose large numbers of their deer. We lose millions of dollars of captive herd animals, and in the wild, theres no telling, Young said. Kaufman said the noseeums cant reproduce in moving water. But when heavy rains come in the summer, they create large puddles, perfect for breeding. We see it go away when we get said. Dwight Knight, the former president of the Florida Deer Association, developed a vaccine by using organs of dead animals to isolate the virus. Its probably one of the worst diseases affecting herds, he said. Hopefully well have a good winter. Were going to need it.

LOCAL MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Contributing WriterLesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters are on TV screens this season more than ever, and its causing mixed reactions in Gainesville. About 4 percent of actors on prime-time network series portray LGBT characters this season, according to the Where We Are on TV study that was released Friday by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. The 4.4 percent of LGBT TV character exposure is the highest level GLAAD has ever seen, said Matt Kane, associate director of entertainment media for GLAAD. That number shows a 1.5 percent increase from the 2.9 percent represented in 2011. This increase shows that the LGBT community is audiences, Kane said. networks and graphed out regular characters with networks, he said. Although LGBT characters are becoming more popular, whats shown on TV isnt always like reality, said Matthew Wintle, sponsorship director of UFs Pride Student Union. People take shows like The New Normal and base their perspectives off that, Wintle said. That show has a lot of stereotypes, and a wide range of the gay and Chris Boyett, an 18-year-old English freshman, said he felt similarly. The increase of gay characters on television is imally forced, Boyett said. A lot of the producers and directors in Hollywood are part of the LGBT community, so they need to work on creating more well-rounded characters that represent themselves better. Shows like Glee dont show the LGBT community nity is really like. We see shows like Modern Family and Will & Grace, and a lot of those are just two white gay men, UF LGBT affairs director Lauren Hannahs said. We still dont have a lot of variety in terms of getting transgendered and bisexuals noticed. Even though Americans are becoming increasingly accepting of the LGBT community, media outlets and networks often take more conservative approaches, she said. Its hard to pinpoint a perfect example because the LGBT community is so diverse, Wintle said. Callie best representation I can see on TV because it gets to the heart that were all just people. But the increase in character development shows that audiences resonate with these characters, Kane said. the different personalities within the community, he said. Wintle said he believes the representation will get better over time. As time progresses, the statistic is going to increase, Wintle said. Were making progress, but theres still a lot of work that needs to be done.

David Carr / Alligator Staff Coach Will Muschamp reacts to a replay on the Jumbotron during Floridas ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer Florida is in uncharted territory. After UFs worst two-year stretch since 1988-1989, the Gators have enjoyed a streak of success the likes of which most current players havent experienced in their college careers. After scoring 14 unanswered points to defeat thenNo. 4 LSU on Saturday and snap the Tigers 18-game regular-season winning streak, UF leapfrogged six spots to No. 4 in the newest AP poll. Whether the Gators can handle the national spotlight remains to be seen. straight, travels to Nashville, Tenn., to take on Vanderbilt on Saturday in Vanderbilt Stadium. Well see Saturday night, coach Will Muschamp said. To this point, (weve done) very well as far as understanding and approaching each game the same. Were not going to put in any more hours as coaches this week than we did a week ago. Were not going to put any less, either. Well prepare very similar to what weve done this far in the season. Although his exuberant after-game antics in the locker room may suggest otherwise, Muschamp made sure to point out that Floridas victory against LSU counted for only one. champs tenure created an unusual buzz, Florida has started preparations for win No. 6. In 105 years of playing football, UF has reached 6-0 just seven times. For the third time this season, Florida is facing a Southeastern Conference foe on the road. The Commodores arent the same team that has dropped the last 21 meetings against the Gators and has been outscored ups. Vanderbilt, led by secondyear coach James Franklin and redshirt senior quarterback Jordan Rodgers, couldnt repoints with less than two minutes to go in the fourth quarter against Florida last season. The Commodores outscored the Gators 21-9 in the second half but couldnt erase mately losing 26-21. between the two teams since a 21-17 UF win in 2002. We have our work cut out for us at 6 oclock there in Nashville, Muschamp said. Look forward to another opportunity to go out there and get better. Floridas defense believes it isnt the same football team that lost six of its last nine to close out 2011. UF showed against LSU on Saturday that it could contend with the physical heavyweights of the SEC who dominated the Gators last season. Fullback Hunter Joyer said people still doubted Florida before its victory against LSU. He treated the matchup as a statement game. Message received, but the Gators have turned their sights to a bigger prize than just beating the Tigers in the seasons Like weve been saying all along, we have a more mature team this year, quarterback Jeff Driskel said. Were not going to be Florida looking to avoid letdown JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer Mike Gillislee was named Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday for his efforts in Saturdays win against LSU, but both he and coach Will Muschamp gave credit to the blockers. Being patient as a running back (is important), Gillislee said on Saturday. Thats all being a running back is (about) being patient and having faith in your offensive line. Knowing that the holes will be there sooner or later. The holes opened up in the second half, as Gillislee averaged just 2.8 yards per carry in the second. His longest runs of the day were two came when left guard James Wilson and left tackle Xavier Nixon pulled to the right and opened up a gaping hole that Gillislee ran through untouched. Muschamp said he was impressed with the offensive lines ability to handle the Tigers defensive front. champ said. Because most of the teams were going to play from here on out, they dont stay blocked long. Line credited for run success FIRE JOE MORGAN Floridas 14-6 upset victory against LSU on Saturday was a microcosm of UFs season. The Gators held tough defensively while the offense turned the ball over twice and recorded just 47 yards on 32 plays during the Then, a slew of halftime adjustments helped Florida dominate. Its not like were waiting [for] the second half to turn it on, quarterback Jeff Driskel said on Saturday. Were trying to make plays in The Gators are a second-half team, and thats one hell of a trait. Florida has rallied back Tennessee and LSU. UF has scored 57 percent of its points in the second half and has outscored its opponents 41-0 in the fourth quarter. No other team in college football has shut out all of its opponents in The Gators have averaged 221.6 yards of total offense after halftime this season. If Florida duplicated its secondhalf offensive output it would jump from 10th in the Southeastern Conference in total offense to fourth.

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2012 TRAVIS DEFENSE KEYED UPSET VICTORY ON SUNDAY. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Writer Taylor Travis and Shea Groom were almost teammates. Coach Becky Burleigh recruited Groom heavily in high school, but the now-sophomore turned down a chance to play forward alongside Travis in Gainesville and instead went to College Station, Texas. On Sunday, Groom and Travis squared off against each other when No. 18 Florida (10-3-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) visited No. 5 Texas A&M (12-2-1, 6-1-1 SEC). Travis, who moved from for ward to outside back before the season, had the tough task of defending Groom. One of Texas A&Ms most potent threats, Groom scored six goals in 10 matches in 2011 before suffering a season-ending ligament tear in her foot. Groom scored the Aggies lone goal, but it was Travis and the Gators who prevailed, defeating Texas A&M 2-1. I thought Taylor was really up for that game, and did a really good job of shutting her down, which is not easy to do, Burleigh said. From the beginning of the game, Travis made it known that Groom would not have an easy time getting through Floridas backline. Groom received a pass from for ward Annie Kunz and dribbled into the box. Travis sprinted from behind Groom, slid and knocked the ball away. The tackle sent Groom to the ground. Groom got up smiling after Travis aggressive slide tackle, but Travis would frustrate her enough to remove the smile from her face. [Travis] had a lot of blocked shots and just denied [Groom] her 1 v. 1 specialty, Burleigh said. Travis made another defensive stand in the 22nd minute. Goalkeeper Taylor Burke was pressured by two Aggies forwards and sent an errant pass to the feet West. West fed Kunz directly in front of the net, and she dribbled forward. Travis darted in and knocked the ball away from Kunz and out of bounds, breaking up what goal of the game. I was very impressed with [Travis] today, senior Jo Dragotta said after the game. She showed what she can do. However, the corner that resulted from Travis pushing the ball out of bounds led to the only time Travis could not stop Groom. On the resulting corner kick, Groom got in front of Travis near the far post and was able to head the ball in to give the Aggies a 1-0 lead. Travis would not let it happen again. game, Texas A&M pressured the Florida defense in a last-ditch effort to send the game to overtime. Travis broke up two passes inside of the penalty box, preventing the Aggies from getting a chance to equalize. battled with Groom two more times. With about 25 seconds left, she fought Groom for possession off of a header, ultimately popping the ball up in the air to junior Adriana Leon. Groom stole the ball from Leon and dribbled towards the edge of the box, but Travis again got in her way. Groom tried to break away and dribbled towards the goal line, but Travis used her foot to knock the ball out with only 10 seconds remaining. [Getting the ball out] was the only thing I think, not only on my mind, but on everyone elses mind, Travis said. We were trying to keep our composure, and at times we did very well, but then the last minute or two you just need to get the ball out. Burleigh said she thought Travis did a great job of shutting Groom down throughout the game, despite Grooms goal. Taylor gets really motivated when she plays against somebody who is just as fast as she is, Bur leigh said. That doesnt happen too often.
