KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Writerkvarn@alligator.orgAfter receiving hazing allegations against several fraternities, UF administrators are enacting changes in pledging processes. Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer outlined the new rules in a letter sent Monday to all 61 Greek organizations. Chapters are now prohibited from conducting new member education programs for longer than eight weeks. They cant host events where new members must stay in the house overnight, and they cant enforce pledge driving a practice that requires new members to drive initiated members places at any time. An alumnus, alumna or chapter adviser approved by the organizations headquarters must be present at initiation during the Spring as well, according to the letter. I think if were going to change the culture, we need to send a strong message, Kratzer said in an interview. Anything that takes away from or diminishes academic success is not OK.

The University Corners project is a proposed development that would cover three city blocks that currently sit vacant next to the Gator Wesley building. University Development of Gainesville has placed a bid on the project and is requesting $48 million in reimbursement from the city over a 20-year period. In the meeting, Community Redevelopment Agency spokeswoman Lynn Janowski said the company failed to submit all of the necessary information on its application to the agency, which handles bids on this project. The latest version of the plan application includes 500 residential units, 142 hotel units, 78,330 square feet of retail space and 1,131 parking spaces.

ANGELA SKANEAlligator Contributing WriterWhen Stephany Vazquez was taken to the hospital at 13 years old to get morphine for her cramps, her mom realized her daughters menstrual pains werent normal. Vazquez, now an 18-yearold communication sciences and disorders freshman, found out she had ovarian cysts on both of her ovaries when she was 13. She started her period at the age of 10. It took her three years after the pain began to see a doctor. I was in this tremendous amount of pain, and my mom said she didnt want her child going through this, she said. About 73 percent of women who experience pelvic pains have never seen a doctor for it, according to a new UF study. Dr. Nash Moawad, head of minimally invasive surgery in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UF, was the physician leader for the research. The study, Attributes and Barriers to Care of Pelvic Pain in University Women, found 284 of the 390 women surveyed experienced some type of pelvic pain. Only 75 of those women had seen a doctor for their pains. The study was published in the November issue of the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology. Some women think its normal to have painful periods, Moawad said. Women may think, Im going to live the rest of my life expecting that its part of being a woman. This is not true, he said. Vazquez said she thought her pains ran in the family because her mom had painful menstrual cycles growing up. Not a lot of girls had gotten their period yet, Vazquez said. So it was hard to explain to the teacher why I would have to go home so much. Vazquez would get the pains a few days before her cycle started. When she was 15, she went to see an OB-GYN who suggested birth control to help ease the pains. Ever since Ive been on birth control, it has helped me a ton, she said.Most women who experience pelvic pain dont see a doctor Some women think its normal to have painful periods ...

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Apparently there is a bit of irony in the November air in Washington. More Americans have lost their health insurance because of Obamacare than Americans who have signed up for it. The president botched the health insurance exchange website, and the strong unity of Congressional Democrats who pushed the Affordable Care Act through Congress and onto the American people is starting to chip away. Fear not: Red-state can save Obamacare. Take Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), for instance. Manchin wants to delay the individual mandate and Shaheen wants to extend the deadline for enrollment. They assume when the website is up and running again, the exchange market with the help of their is implemented smoothly. er picture will not help the Affordable Care Act. These remedies would gut the law. Manchins delay of the individual mandate and Shaheens deadline extension discourage the young, healthy invincibles from signing up for the exchanges. These invincibles will subsidize the older, sicker Americans. If young, healthy people do not sign up for the exchanges, the No one is more vulnerable in the 2014 midterm elections than Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.). In order to save herself politically, she proposed legislation that would ensure that those people who have lost their health insurance because of the Affordable Care Act would get it back for a year. However, The Washington Posts Ezra Klein said the Landrieu bill will lead to a sicker, older risk pool not exactly what the chief executive wants. To the average American, these solutions seem like sensible ideas. Who would not like to keep their recently dropped health care plan for another year? Who wants to be forced into the health care exchange market in its shaky state? Obama told the press he would veto these conreason to because these solutions would undermine his signature piece of legislation. But deliberately saying no to pieces of legislation many people will a political nightmare not just for him, but for his congressional Democratic colleagues. Red-state Democrats told their constituencies they would be held accountable for Obamacare even Sen. Landrieu. Good luck to her. Yes, Obamacare does have provisions that many people like, such as eligibility for insurance even with preexisting conditions and allowing young people to stay on their parents policies until they are 26. But no one could predict all of the negative effects of the health care law, Obama included. All of the president misleading the people. What is left is a political nightmare for the Democrats in the short term. A glitchy website, the dropping of health care plans and a lie to the American people are not things that many politicians would posed undermine the law, looking like you are trying to solve the problem looks good politically. People thought the website glitches were the worst thing that could happen to Obamacare. But it appears its actually the Democrats. Michael Beato is a UF economics sophomore. His column runs on Tuesdays.Democrats gut ObamacareColumnFifty years later, JFKs most memorable quote remains: Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your ists not in his executive orders or legislative actions, but rather the commitment to service that he inspired in the American people. In public service and eration. Through his lasting impact, Kennedy continues citizens alike. Kennedys commitment to service ran further than lofty speeches and tenuous encouragement. Rather, his own inspirational turn to public service demonstrated the extent to which he supported his own philosophy. After his brother Joseph Kennedy Jr.s death, JFK himself enhis nation in matters of war and peace, prosperity and reRecalling his time at Harvard in a 1960 recording, Kennedy remembered his future Senate rival Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.s election to the Senate during Kennedys freshman year, in 1936. Remarking how he could never have thought he would eventually defeat the Senator in the future, Kennedy called upon others to consider public service, including the freshman that would probably end up Similarly, Kennedy would prospectively encourage college students today to enter in public service. Naturally, then, Harvards own John F. Kennedy School of Government could not have received a more appropriate name. Through institutions such as the Peace Corps, President Kennedy altered both American and international conceptions of service. He believed service need not stop at national boundaries. He thought Americas code of morality must stand as a model for other nations, and America must be a people that demonstrate greatness worldwide. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosis recent Radcliffe visit illuminated Kennedys personal charm among the nations young people. Explaining her fondness for Kennedy in her youth, when her father was mayor of Baltimore, Pelosis story suggests that Kennedys voice carried far, and his call to action even farther. Kennedys handsomeness and charisma may have contributed to his 1960 electoral victory, but it is his idealism and policy that contributed to his superior legacy and popularity. His presidential image was unique, but his intionable character would not detract from his legacy. For those who ascribe to him purportedly indecent actions, Kennedys legacy remains distinct. His actions as a person are one aspect, but the ideas that he stood for remain another. Regardless of what one suspects of the former, the latter remains unquestionably popular and ethical. America remembers Nov. 22, 1963 for the loss of a leader who understood American values and generated enthusiasm for American exceptionalism. On the brink of turning a Cold War into a ho t one in October 1962, Kennedy maintained that America would ica would triumph over communism, Kennedy knew the successful, and he brought the country together in a time of crisis. ty lines. Kennedy espoused the ideals of both liberalism and conservatism. His conscientious regard for peoples welfare combined with his acceptance of economic liberty made Kennedy a bipartisan idol, unmatched in popularity. It is Kennedys non-partisan character that best contributes to his positive impact. Consider another of Kennedys famous quotes: If by a Liberal they mean then Im passionate aspects of liberalism, Kennedys quote does as Kennedy, a heavy defense-spending and tax-cutting capitalist at his core, argued not for Washingtons interference in peoples welfare. Rather, Kennedy positively argued for inspiring people to provide for themselves and to further challenge them to provide for their country. political spectrum. A long-revered hero to the left, his actions more appropriately place him as a centrist. In some respects, Kennedy could be described as the best Republican president in recent times. At the same time, Kennedys commitment to the Democratic Party is well documented. Kennedy was certainly progressive in matters of civil rights, womens rights and other social issues. He challenged public perceptions and fought oppression. In that way, everyone can learn from Kennedys leadership. Amid tough political challenges of increasing polarization, Kennedy appears to be among the greatest role models for both the left and the right. In his image, let us A pragmatic politician but an inspirational ideologue, President Kennedys encouragement of public service should not be taken lightly. One of Americas greatest leaders was assassinated on Nov. 22, 1963, but his ideas live on. Fifty years later, we all share responsibility for keeping the torch burning.

ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgTen-foot tall posters displaying creationist beliefs stirred up controversy on the Plaza of the Americas on Monday and left many students arguing. The display was part of a threeday exhibit by traveling pastor Tom Short, said Megan Lisle, an 18-yearold UF anthropology freshman and member of Gator Christian Life, which helped bring Short to UF. at UF every semester for years, but ers. Each day has a theme, starting with the validity of the Bible on Friday, creationism on Monday and the life of Jesus today. Lisle said she thinks the posters are a positive addition to Shorts campaign because of their convenience. You can just read it., she said. You dont have to stay for hours and listen to him. Megan Anderson, a 22-year-old University of North Florida elementary education junior, took a semester off to intern with Short. She said the mission was to spread the creationist point of view, because you arent taught that in school. Dan Miner, an 18-year-old UF aerospace engineering freshman, said that although hes a Christian, he doesnt believe sermons like this will do much to change minds. Large groups like this, its just reinforcement of what you already believe, he said. Theres such a polarization of belief. Tahlia Demaio, a 25-year-old UF astrophysics graduate student, said the posters made her sick to her stomach. Were in front of a library, wheres theres fact and truth and knowledge, she said. Creationism is wrong. It is a belief.

ELIZABETH UDELLAlligator Contributing WriterRamin Bastani has been called the safest man to have sex with in America he has been tested for diseases more than 50 times in the last two years and a new mobile application he developed might be able to give others this title, too. Hula, a free iPhone application, derives its name from Hawaiian hula dancers because Bastani said he is looking to help people get leid the safe way. Hula account holders know where the nearest sexually transmitted disease testing center is, the results of a test and even when to get checked next, according to a news release. Bastani said he hopes Hula will encourage safe sex, potentially reversing trends that might be impacting the sexual habits of college students. About 50 percent of sexually active college students use condoms, according to a recently released report by Trojan and the Sex Information and Education Council of Canada. Bastani said the app allows users to obtain records quicker and without having to get the dreaded, If you dont hear from us in two weeks, no news is good news, statement from a medical health practitioner. Currently, 75 percent of clinics are able to send test results through the application, he said. Although the UF Student Health Center does not send results through the app, Catherine Seemann, communications coordinator for the SHCC, said about 60 students a week go into the SHCC for routine STD screening. In addition to providing information to stay on top of STD testing, Hula also allows you to share your STD test results with potential partners.

Soon after, she heard screams so loud they popped her eardrums. Then, knocks from her neighbors cousin. Call the police, the woman said. Whats wrong? Johnson, 37, asked. My cousin is dead, she replied. As the details unfolded, Johnson found out her neighbor, 22-year-old Caitlin A. Albritton, had been shot in the head by a former boyfriend Saturday afternoon at Village Green Apartments. According to police, the man broke into unit G-53 and was waiting for her to come home. Albritton, six weeks pregnant and the mother of two young children, died at the scene. A little more than 24 hours later, Gainesville Police arrested Alvin G. Thomas, the reported killer and father of one of Albrittons children, at the Budget Inn on Southwest 13th Street. The shooting shook up neighbors. Some are sleepless and fearful. Some want to leave. Many said Albritton had just moved into the complex a few months earlier. They hadnt had a chance to get to know her yet. However, one resident knew her from earlier days, when they attended Westwood Middle School and Gainesville High School together. Kateece Graham, 22, said Albritton was friendly. When asked if Albritton was popular, Graham let out a sigh and nodded. Everyone knew her. She was always there when you needed her, she said.

Many neighbors at the complex live with young children, like 36-year-old Sheena Wooten, who lives in an apartment with six children and a clutter of toys. About a month ago, the Santa Fe College nursing student warmed up to allowing her children to play outside. Not anymore though, she said. In fact, she walks to her mailbox around her building to avoid the more direct route that passes by Albrittons apartment. to live, she said as her 2-year-old son crawled Resident Casey Rush said she felt the same way. On Saturday, she heard the gunshot while she stood outside on her balcony smoking a Newport with a friend. Rush, 25, and her boyfriend ventured downstairs while her three young children stayed in the apartment. She peeked inside the door, open about halfway, and saw a body. Her eyes traveled up the legs, torso, but didnt reach the face. I didnt want to see her face, she said the same balcony. Meanwhile, her children played inside. One of them, Rushs 7-year-old daughter, is afraid to sleep. Its too close to home, you know? she said. Thomas motive is unknown, but police are still investigating. Investigators determined his relationship with Albritton ended fairly recently. Rush heard from neighbors that Thomas was mad that Albritton didnt want to be with him anymore. She recalled hearing the gunshot and then seeing a man leave the apartment with no emotion on his face. You see stuff like that on TV, she said. It just makes you open your eyes and see how real this stuff is.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 AP PhotoTyphoon HaiyanA young Filipino takes a shower at a school turned into a temporary shelter for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan, in Tacloban, Philippines, on Monday. Hundreds of thousands of people were displaced by the typhoon, which tore across several islands in the eastern Philippines on Nov. 8. TWO-THIRDS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS HAVE USED A FAKE ID. DANIELA PRIZONT-CADOAlligator Contributing WriterCollege students who use fake IDs to buy alcohol are more likely to develop drinking problems down the road, according to a recent study. Researchers at the University of Maryland said that about two-thirds of college students sampled have used a fake ID, and using one may contribute to the possibility of developing drinking disorders in the future. Stephanie Lucena, an 18-year-old UF said using a fake ID may put students at a higher risk, but it does not mean they will have a drinking problem. The study hinted there could be a correlation between the use of fake IDs and being involved in Greek life. But Lucena, who is in coed business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi, said she disagrees. We all have standards to uphold as a fraternity, and if anything happens, its their choice, she said. Kevin Chow, an 18-year-old UF biology freshman, said he knows people who sell and own fake IDs. Chow said owning a fake ID can be risky. Theres always other ways of getting alcohol, he said. Possibly, if you know someone who is 21, or parties. But Chow said he understands that drinking can lead to serious consequences in the future. Theres a reason why the drinking age is 21 and older Its not worth developing drinking problems for a cup of alcohol, he said. GatorWell Health Promotion Services director, Maureen Miller, said she agrees with the fact that students should wait to drink. The brain is still developing until your 20s, she said.Fake IDs contribute to future drinking disorders, study says COURTNEY NACHLASAlligator Contributing WriterThe average college student checks his or her cellphone about 11 times a school day, according to a new study. The study, published last month, showed that more than 90 percent of students admitted to using their devices in class for non-class activities. The study, conducted at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, surveyed 777 students in six universities. More than two-thirds admitted to checking email or social networks in class on their mobile device or laptop. UF was not one of the institutions surveyed. Thomas Glenn, a UF graduate teaching assistant in French and Francophone Studies, said although he hates texting in his class, he knows people occasionally do it. He said when he was teaching middle school, he would put students phones in a shoebox and call it jail. But with students paying to take his class, he said, its the students responsibility to pay attention. If youre not engaged, I cant force you to be engaged, he said. Vicki Baker, a 20-year-old health science sophomore, said she thinks teachers can get discouraged when they see a classroom full of texting students. It portrays to them that we arent engaged, she said. It also makes them feel like they arent doing a good enough job to keep our attention.Most students use devices during class Gainesville swimming pools draw about 124,000 visits Theres a reason why the drinking age is 21 and older ... Its not worth developing drinking problems for a cup of alcohol.Kevin ChowUF biology freshman KAYLA MARCUSAlligator Contributing WriterThe City of Gainesvilles three municipal swimming pools exceeded attendance goals for the season, which ended Oct. 31. In the last year, patrons logged 123,704 visits, according to a recent news release. Overall, attendance has tripled since 2007. The Dwight H. Hunter Northeast Pool, located at 1100 NE 14th St., is open year-round and had the highest reported attendance with nearly 60,000 visits last year, according to the release. To record attendance, residents scan in with a membership card, and the data is sent to the city, said Ashley Miller, the Northeast Pool manager. In the early 2000s, no one would come, she said. Now we seem to be over capacity, and we have programs stacked back-to-back throughout the year. Gainesville resident Leah Vail practices her time-clock drills and pull-kicks at the Northeast pool twice a week to train for her next U.S. Masters Swimming event. I come here because of the friendly atmosphere, she said. The citys investment in the pools and the economic downturn that began in 2008 contributed to the increased attendance, according to the release. We have noticed more walkin people over time, Miller said. It seems to stay pretty constant throughout the year.Attendance exceeded goalsLIFESTYLE

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Agata Strausa was one of two Gators to earn an at-large bid for the NCAA Championships. Read the story on page 14.Kickoff setFloridas game against Florida State on Nov. 30 at JONATHAN CZUPRYN Alligator Writer@jczupryn Just two minutes into the second half of No. 16 Floridas 67-53 victory against Southern on Monday night, point guard Kasey Hill suffered a high left ankle sprain after being fouled driving to the basket. He did not return to the game, and coach Billy Donovan said he expects Hill to miss at least a month. If the initial diagnosis is correct, Hill would miss matchups with No. 18 Connecticut and No. 2 Kansas. said he heard him screaming. Seconds after Hill dropped, the teams trainer, strength coach and Donovan raced to his side. The freshman had to be helped off Its one of those sprains where its certainly a longer healing process, Donovan said. And I know when you try to rush a guy back too soon, it really, really complicates things. At the time of the injury, Hill was leading Florida with eight points on 4-of-6 shooting. Six of his eight points were results of layups. He also had three assists. When Hill exited the game, Donovan played DeVon Walker and Michael Frazier II at point guard. Donovan said Walker has served as the backup point guard to Hill in practice this season, so he knows the most about running the position. However, the offense will take a hit without Hill. The hardest part, for me, is it really eliminates a real opportunity to get creative on offense because you really have to shorten up the playcalls, Donovan said. For a guy like DeVon and Michael Frazier to know the two, the three and the point, their head would explode. Its not fair to them. Florida loses freshman guard in win against SouthernKan Li / Alligator StaffKasey Hill lies on the ground after suffering an ankle injury during the second half of Floridas 67-53 victory against Southern in the OConnell Center on Monday. Hill is expected to miss at least one month due to a high ankle sprain. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer@joe_morgan Tyler Murphy was frustrated. After three years on the bench, he Floridas 31-17 win against Tennessee on Sept. 21. Not even two months later, a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder had him back on the sidelines. I caught myself being down a lot just knowing I wouldnt be able to go out there and play that day, Murphy said. Like before, during his days as a backup, Murphy does not know when vating his shoulder injury in a 34-17 loss to Vanderbilt on Nov. 9, Murphy needs approval from the training staff Its just tough, Murphy said. Its very tough being on the side. Its a struggle many Gators continue to endure. Left tackle D.J. Humphries is doubtful to play against Georgia Southern on Saturday. An MCL sprain has already sidelined the sophomore for three games. Marcus Roberson could also miss Saturdays contest with an ankle injury. He was suspended for Floridas 19-14 loss to South Carolina, a game he would have missed regardless due to the injury. streak the Gators longest such skid since a winless 1979 season an already injury-ravaged Florida would like all hands on deck moving forward. But the solutions are far from simple.Injured Murphy remains questionable for SaturdayPHILIBUSTER Im not much of a fan of extended metaphors. Theyre contrived. Theyre cheesy. Often times, they have to be stretched and molded in weird shapes and forms to make any sense. But indulge me for a moment while I use one to make a point. Have you seen The Dark Knight? full of excellent acting and has an excellent plot. Anyway, that is neither here nor there.) Think back to the scene when Harvey Dent stands in front of hundreds of reporters, cops and politicians to respond to a recent wave of crime in Gotham caused by the Joker. Using logic and reasoning, Dent attempts to assure the crowd that a sound long-term plan would be more prudent than a drastic short-term measure. As Dent is speaking, someone in the crowd yells, Things are worse than ever! to the delight of much of the audience, which costly it may be to come to fruition. Well, Will Muschamp has become Gainesvilles version of Dent this season. With fans clamoring for a change you know, because things are worse than ever Muschamp has used (mostly) sound reasoning and logic to combat his antagonists during one of the more dreadful seasons in recent Florida football history. Perhaps things are worse than ever. Floridas offense is last in the Southeastern Conference and 111th in the nation in scoring. Its defense, which was dominant to overcome the loss of several critical players due to injury. Because of that, the Gators sit at 4-6. They cant win the SEC Eastern Division, and it would take something resembling a miracle for them to even become bowl eligible contwo games one coming against powerhouse Florida State. But there is hope amid the anguish, and it comes in the form of a rapidly developing nucleus of young difference-makers on each side of the ball.

THE PAIR WILL RUN SATURDAY. JORDAN MCPHERSON Alligator Writer@J_McPherson1126 Two more Florida runners will make the trip to Terre Haute, Ind. Even though the womens cross country team failed to secure a team bid to this weekends NCAA Championships, redshirt junior Cory McGee and redshirt senior Agata Strausa picked up at-large individual bids for the meet, the NCAA announced Saturday. Both McGee and Strausa posted top-10 performances at the South Regional Championships Friday and earned All-South Region honors, leading Florida to a fourthsecond on the Harry Pritchett Runwhich topped her personal-best 6K by 35.46 seconds. Her time was the fastest regionals race by a Gator and the second-fastest 6K in Florida history. That was a huge race for Cory, coach Paul Spangler said. She came out (Friday) and proved why shes one of the best runners in the country. Strausa crossed the line ninth Regional Championships. Her time improved from last years regional meet by 44.03 seconds. Every race is just another chance to run even better, Strausa said. Im excited to race every race as it comes. This is McGees third time and Strausas second time competing in an NCAA cross country Championship. McGee was the third Gator ship, completing the 6K course in 31 teams that year. The duo will make the trip to the Hoosier State with the mens team, which clinched an automatic berth the South region on Friday. Senior Mark Parrish and junior Jimmy Clark led the men in Tuscapersonal records. I have been doing well in the translate this year in 10K, Parrish said. down a move with about a mile and a half to go in the race, and that cult point of the race. (And) with going one-two we couldnt have asked for more. Florida also saw another breakout performance by junior Eddie ished third for the Gators and ninth overall on Friday, running the 10K Parrish, Clark and Garcia earned All-South Region honors at the meet, marking the second time Garcia was awarded the accolade and the third time Parrish and Clark were recognized with the honor. 14, ALLIGATOR Kan Li / Alligator StaffRonni Williams attempts a shot during Floridas 88-77 win against North Florida on Nov. 10 in the OConnell Center.

UF secured more boards than Virginia Tech but ultimately lost due to a We were really concerned with the way they were capable of rebounding the basketball, coach Amanda Butler said. We went out and outrebounded them, but there were other areas of our game that werent quite as tight as they needed to be. season, Florida showed great balance. However, both games were at home, and both opponents were considered less than formidable. Three days later, Florida trounced the Gators still managed to get outOwls team. Florida may have a well-balanced team, but it does not play like one on a nightly basis. Consistency is a constant battle for any coach to get out of their team, especially for Butler. Thats been our struggle, Butler said. If we spend a lot of time on one thing, we do a great job of handling that, but then theres another area that lets down. Weve got to get better across the board at having a high level of play and a high level of consistency from game to game and even from half to half. Another undesirable UF theme has been foul trouble, most notably from freshman Ronni Williams. The forward has fouled out in three consecutive games. Due to an already shallow bench, the small number of replacements. Theres a change in womens basketball this year for everyone, Butler said. If you watch any game, there are probably double the fouls that have been called in the past. Thats an adjustment for everyone. When you take that, compounded by being a freshman and making the college adjustment, its kind of like a double whammy I think for all the freshmen right now in the country. Especially players like Ronni, who are aggressive, who are capable shotblockers, who are going to be playing a lot of minutes. Williams has been racking up fouls, but the onus is on the coaches to make in-game adjustments. Despite her foul trouble, Williams is averaging 10 Some of it, quite honestly, is just going to happen because of the way the games being called this year, Butler said. Weve got to be smart as coaches getting them to adjust to the way the crew is calling the game. (We will) help them make adjustments that maybe they arent able to recognize on their own quite yet.

UF IS 24-3 THIS SEASON. RJ SCHAFFER Alligator Writer @rjschaffer When Florida traveled to Missouri on Oct. 20, it was in the midst of one of the best stretches of volleyball in the programs history. UF swept nine straight matches from Sept. 17 to Oct. 13, which included No. 17 Kentucky and No. 22 Florida State. But that dominance has leveled off since the No. 5 Gators lost to the No. 7 Tigers in four sets in Colummatchup, Florida dropped a set Texas A&M and were most recently swept by the Tigers on Friday night. Anytime when you lose, you step back, coach Mary Wise said. I think in some areas weve proved Missouri was able to exploit some things that we can direct our attention on and weve gotten better from it. When you play a team as talented as Missouri and well-coached as Missouri, there are plenty of teachable moments. Barring a collapse by Missouri, which is one of only two undefeated teams remaining in the nation, the Tigers will secure a Southeastern Conference title with a win against Mississippi State on Friday. Although it may seem as though the Tigers dominated the Gators in their sweep, each set came down to at least 22 points in each set. The focus for the Gators now turns from winning an SEC title to national title. While a regular season title is out of the question, the possibility of getting a top seed in the NCAA Tournament is still possible. Wises squad is currently sixth in match win-loss percentage in the nation at .889. Securing a top seed would assure that Gainesville would be one of the host cities for tournament. There are three games remaining on Floridas schedule an away match against Tennessee on on Friday against LSU and the reguon Nov. 27.

I just think that emphasis for all of our attackers is a good thing. As Florida heads on the road to face Duke in second-round play on Friday in Durham, N.C., that mindset will be critical. Although Duke has a 9-8-5 record this season, Burleigh said her team cannot afford to overlook the Blue Devils or that their season could end. It seems like every single time we she said. With the Gators looking for a more potent attack to advance in NCAA play, Speese is one of Floridas starters that can make a difference.
