Unlike the team Muschamp called soft in 2011, UF won with physicality. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer With every hole Mike Gillislee plowed through and every wouldbe tackler he dodged, the Gators moved closer to re-establishing themselves as one of the best teams in college football.

These Gators have a legitimate shot to play for the Southeastern Conference title in Atlanta. Were not soft. No one can call us soft now, quarterback Jeff Driskel said. If we didnt have peoples respect, we gained it today. Were a physical team. The Gators proved that on the ground, rushing for 176 yards and controlling the line of scrimmage. UF ran the ball on 25 consecutive began when Gillislee scored from 12 yards out to put Florida ahead for good with 5:15 remaining in the third quarter. his signature. A year after being ridiculed, the Gators prevailed with physicality. On Sunday, UF vaulted up to No. 4 in the newest AP Poll. Its a big statement, safety Josh Evans said of the win. This is a good spot and a good position were in to open up a lot of eyes to show that were on the rise. During the offseason, Muschamp preached toughness to a team that consistently struggled to close out games on the ground in 2011. Saturdays win validated that emphasis. That was fun, Muschamp said with a sly smile. Its gratifying to me because of the way we lost games last year, quite frankly. I know weve made improvements in Floridas line wore down LSUs vaunted defense, showing the results of offseason work with strength coach Jeff Dillman. Gillislee did the rest, rushing for 146 yards and two scores on 34 carries the most by a Gator since Fred Taylor toted the ball 34 times against Auburn in 1997.

Her sister, 4-year-old Marybeth, wore a I like the chocolate sandwiches, Angela said, smiling. Joe MacKenzie, Angela and Marybeths dad, said the tea was a nice event to attend with his daughters. Families gathered around tables, some covered with blue and white teapots.

To see all the people dressed up and the families come out together thats what its all about. Oct. 11, 1965: Graham Area hosted its annual Playboy party. The tradition started during Fall 1962.

NATANYA SPIESAlligator Contributing WriterGator fans were decked out in orange and blue this weekend, but some Panera Bread customers were thinking pink. In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, pink balloons and streamers and employees wearing pink hats set the scene as the bakery-cafe sold ribbon-shaped bagels for the Panera Friday. One hundred percent of the proceeds from every Pink Ribbon Bagel sold at Panera Bread locations in Gainesville and Ocala that day will be donated to Shands at UF for womens cancer research. By Friday morning, 900 customers pre-ordered bagels from the Panera Bread on Archer Road, said Megan Sones, a Panera Bread mar keting coordinator. Lindy Brounley, communications director of UF Shands Cancer Center, said she bought two dozen When she walked into the Archer Road location that morning, she said many of the orders were lined up on the counter. The place was packed, Brounley said. We had a line of people going from the front counter and curling all the way back to where the eating area was. vored bagel was designed especially for the cause, Sones said, and the ribbon-shaped dough included dried cherries, dried cranberries, vanilla chips and honey. Its making my mouth water just thinking about it, Brounley said. It is so delicious. Sones said Panera Goes Pink is a national campaign. Each franchise has a different local partner in or der to directly see the results of the fundraising. Thats why we partnered with Shands, Sones said. We want to directly impact the areas we are located in. Jillian Connolly, an 18-year-old mechanical engineering freshman, said the fact that Panera Bread donates 100 percent of the proceeds makes the campaign unique. It really makes a statement that they really want to help the situation, Connolly said. You might be able to see the results right where we are, right here in Gainesville.

Kae-Sa-Luk, the Thai art of carving fruits and vegetables, was the only way she knew to make money when she moved to the United States 33 years ago. I learned cooking, cleaning and sewing. I dont think they ever taught me math, said Pam Maneeratana, a Kae-Sa-Luk master. Maneeratana taught a workshop to about eight people at the Alachua County Headquarters Library on Saturday. Travis Fristoe, the Alachua County Library District programming liaison, said Maneeratana was unique, her resume was stellar and there were no questions about her abilities. Shes an ideal guest, and we are lucky to have her here, Fristoe said. Maneeratana teaches a variety of people bles by picturing an image and working with a knife. You will never look at a produce stand the same again, she said. Maneeratana said she never makes anything traditional. She began learning to carve in middle school, where women were forced to learn it, she said. I was a very bad student, she said. After I passed the class, I never touched a knife again until I moved to the United States when I was 28. Carving was a start in this country, but it was different. This time, carving gave me peace. kins with different shapes or that look unusual. She said carving is like meditation. You focus and concentrate really hard on one thing or one fruit or vegetable at a time. Its relaxing, she said. You want to concentrate with your knife and feel every time it goes through. Maneeratana said beginners should use a variety of fruits and vegetables and keep their natural colors and textures. ever you force yourself to make it perfect, you ruin it. Do things by nature have a free spir it, she said. when creating carved art. If something goes wrong, remember its just a vegetable. But if you are reluctant, you will ruin it. Maneeratana said she began carving the cheapest fruits and vegetables and after some time just became interested in what each one had inside. You have to know your fruits and vegetables, she said. Maneeratanas book, Messages Found with the Carving Knife, is available for checkout at the Alachua County Library. The book shows a variety of fruit and vegetable designs paired with philosophical quotes that correlate to how Maneeratana feels while she creates her art. Amelia Lugones, 9, said Maneeratana made her feel inspired to try the art. I dont know what design Ill do, but I will check out her book, Lugones said.

Guys in button downs and girls in heels gawked from outside the strips clubs and bars as Gonzalez and a few hundred other runners sprinted across UFs campus and down University Avenue wearing garments like bras, boy shorts and boxers Friday night as part of the 15th Great Underwear Dash. Gonzalez, a 20-year-old political science junior who wore a cheetah-patterned bra, said the experience is always unique. You get to run around in your underwear you dont get to do this any other day, she said. Gonzalez said this years run looked a little emptier than previous runs, though. More than 950 people responded on Facebook that they would attend the event, but the turnout looked to be less than half that number. Runners wearing Mardi Gras beads, cardboard boxes, Superman ensembles, bedazand military boots arrived on Turlington Plaza and stripped down to their underwear, tossing clothing in a pile on the middle of the plaza. The clothes, gathered in 24 trash bags, were donated to St. Francis House, a Gainesville homeless shelter and soup kitchen. Runners cheeks bounced as they tore down University Avenue across from Midtown. Cars honked and students came out of Buckman Hall to watch the procession. Zak Bedell, a 20-year-old civil engineering junior, ran in pink-and-white-striped boxer shorts while juggling. He said hes been participating in the event every Fall and Spring since a friend invited him freshman year. Its a good cause, he said.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorEditors Note: This letter is in reference to a story that ran in the Sept. 25 edition of the Alligator titled Gainesville Youth Baseballs parent-run board faces setbacks. Dave Mitchell, a main source in the story, gave a false name to the reporter and When the reporter contacted one of the leagues board members, she refused to further explain the situation and didnt deny the notes the reporter read to her over the phone. Once the facts of Mitchells identity and criminal background came to light, the Alligator removed the story from its website and printed a retraction. The Alligator deeply regrets the inaccuracies in the original story. Dear Editor, It is a shame that I have write to you in regards to an article which ran in the Alligator on Sept. 25, both in the print and the online versions. I have been an avid reader of the Alligator for a number of years, and I have to honestly say that I am very disappointed on many levels with that article. There are obvious indications of lack of factchecking and research. The writing style is just all over the place with no real theme to the article. I am appreciative that the article was removed, and a correction ran the next day, after fact-checking too little, too late. young baseball player at bat, was very descriptive and was indeed well-written. That, unfortunately, is where the accuracy of what was reported ends. I can say that the author of the article did not bother to contact me in order to research her article. I am not only a founding board member of the league, but I am also the acting president. I believe that my input would not only have proved insightful but was also mandatory in your staffs protocol in preparing an informative and accurate article. The article is based on representations or misrepresentations of a gentleman by the name of Dave Mitchell who has two children in the youth baseball league. I assure you 100 percent that there is no such person associated with the league by the name of Dave Mitchell. After the article was published, I contacted the staff writer and editor as to the contents of the story. The staff writer assured me that the person she interviewed insisted he was Dave Mitchell, and she stated that he even spelled his name twice for her. The person that she was refer ring to was a gentleman by the name of Dave Mitchum who was involved in the league as a parent of players who played for an independent organization know as the Gainesville Cobras. Had the staff writer had the real name of her source she could have Googled him as part of her research. The Gainesville Cobras is Mr. Mitchums orgaGainesville Cobras registered for the Spring 2012 season with Gainesville Youth Baseball at a reduced fee, due to the fact that they were already organized and had uniYouth Baseball is that the registration fee covers a full uniform for the children. However, Mr. Mitchum charged each individual parent a rate higher than what the league The article stated some parents and coaches have complained of mismanagement. I have not received any complaints of mismanagement. There was a direct quote from Mr. Mitchell (sic) in regards to ... games canceled the day of with no prior warning. Theyve changed our game times. Well show up and the other team tells us we forfeited. If you have the opportunity to speak with any other league in our district of the Babe Ruth League out that game time changes and rescheduling happen teams may not be able to fully participate due to school function scheduling that occurs well into the season, after the game schedule is created. This is not unusual. Mr. Mitchum should be well aware of this, as parents have complained that his travel teams have had tournaments canceled at the last moment. These parents are more upset of a prepaid tournament fee. As to being told that they forfeited, I am not quite sure to what that refers. Is that the mismanagement spoken about? Was it mismanagement when the parents of that Cobras team were asked to volunteer operating the leagues concession stand, and they would not? Jason Upshaw, a coach of the Cobras, was quoted saying that [p]arents are taking their kids and money and going other places. Where? To the Cobras to pay high dues and rarely play games? The league is pleased to say that there are seven teams this fall. In light of competition with the start of new school ventures and other sporting seasons such as football, basketball and cheerleading, we are very pleased with that number. I cannot speak as to the quotes from Michelle Park, assistant director of the citys Park and Recreation Department. I can tell you that when the funding for youth athletics was reduced in the summer of 2010, a group of parents was approached to run the league under the citys sponsorship. This sponsorship included a facilities agreeparks. As for the Gainesville Cobras being in the league for the past few years and leaving because of trouble in the league, they werent. Dave Mitchum formed the team without any motivation whatsoever except how he can Gainesville Cobras, i.e., Dave Mitchum, is concerned. He needs a place to practice for no cost. Fine, practice to your system. There are plenty of alternatives available to his group. Oh, I get it. The mismanagement is the fact that Mr. gratis for the operation of his business, since our season has commenced. Maybe that is why he got so upset at league teams practice. As for the alleged text, did the staff writer actually see this text? I doubt it. I have seen it, and there was no threat to contact the police. Honestly, I am not surprised the police werent called after Mr. Mitchum caused a scene in front of parents and especially the children, being extremely aggressive in confronting Clark. She said nothing during this tirade. There was no reason this article could not have been thoroughly researched and fact-checked. Was there really such a pressing deadline? What really was the newsworthiness of this article? You are so concerned with facing setbacks. What about the strides that were made in this young, parent-run league? What about the care for the community in providing a safe environment for children to participate in organized sports? Did you know Gainesville Youth Baseball extends full and partial scholarship for those members of the community who are less-fortunate? Probably not. I did not realize that the Alligator strove to be in the ranks of The National Enquirer. Certainly, with pieces written like this, that is where it is headed. Mark Simonelli president Gainesville Youth Baseball If Moiss Reyes really believes that Americas oil and natural gas companies are evil, there are some concrete steps he could take and encourage his readers to take to reduce the amount of money these greedy-driven corporations earn. He could start off by selling his vehicle and walking or biking everywhere, so he wont have to use any of the fuel these companies produce. He could say no to long-distance travel on airplanes, buses or trains. He could turn off his air conditioner in his home, so he wont use any of the natural-gas generated electricity these companies provide him. He could give up consuming cooked food, and refrigeration, for that matter, and cease wearing clothes and he could turn all electronic equipment made from materials derived from oil or natural gas. He could suggest to the millions of American retirees with 401Ks, IRAs and other retirement plans to tighten their belts, rather than bank on those investment returns. He could tell the federal government it should make do without the more than $86 million a day it collects from oil and 9.2 million Americans whose jobs are supported by the oil and natural gas industry to join the already-too-long line of unemployed Americans. All these suggestions may sound facetious, but each one points to the fact that Americas oil and natural gas industry is providing Americans the energy they need to live the lives they want to live. Its providing muchneeded revenue to governments and valuable jobs to millions of Americans, and it is helping make our nation more energy-secure with each passing day.

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012Aundre Larrow / Alligator Staff JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterResearchers at UF and at a British university are trying to create a way to use blood tests to screen for breast cancer rather than using traditional mammograms. While the researchers are working independently, their goals are similar. The studies focus on comparing DNA markers in blood samples to detect early signs of breast cancer. Dr. Coy Heldermon, a UF medical oncologist, said a blood test could be a much better option than the current screening methods because it would give a clearer, less invasive reading. I think that mammography is the best weve got, but its not good enough, Heldermon said. If a blood test could be developed greatly improve our ability to screen. The study will be done by comparing proteins in blood samples from people who have cancer and people who do not. This is a method that is being pursued in a number of cancers, he said. Researchers at the University of Leicester are also working on creating a blood test to screen for breast cancer and are about to start clinical trials, Dr. Jacqui Shaw, study principal investigator at the University of Leicester, wrote in an email. The Cancer Research UK charity is fundShe said she has received several comments from women who were excited about the possible option and said theyd prefer the blood test to a mammogram. She said the study will be done by using blood samples from 500 women to compare DNA markers. said she wishes this type of screening method had existed when her grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her grandmother recovered but the process was rough, she said. My grandma was 45 when she found out, but if she would have known sooner, maybe the result didnt have to be so drastic, the 19-year-old said. Ladner said she hopes researchers can target the disease at any earlier stage. I think it would be amazing and so helpful for a lot of women, she said.UF, British researchers working on blood test to screen for cancer CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterWith one of the biggest SEC matchups thus far, police managed thousands of Tigers and Gators fans as they packed Ben day for the UF-Louisiana State University football game. This weeks game saw a spike in ejection and arrest numbers compared to the previous two home games this season. On Saturday, police ejected 108 people from the game, 38 of whom were UF students, according to a UPD news release. Police kicked out 27 people for alcohol possession and 21 others for public intoxication. Of the 27 people ejected for alcohol possession, 25 received civil citations. ple from the stadium for possession of marijuana and issued a sworn complaint for someone arm into the stadium. Police arrested six people during the game, one of them a UF student. Out of the six arrests, four were for trespassing, one for domestic battery and another for resisting arrest, according to the release. The next home game will be on Oct. 20. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org.UF, LSU game arrests SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterThe Election Commission ruled Sunday that both the Students Party and the Swamp Party did not commit any campaign violations. The commission heard one complaint submitted by the Swamp Party and three by the Students Party, which were heard together. complaint against the Students Party president, Sen. Ford Dwyer, for campaigning during three Student Senate meetings, which violates election codes. Sen. Truman Williams, who represented the Swamp Party, said Dwyer was campaigning when he discussed his referendum asking students to change the name of the Reitz Union. Although Dwyer spoke during a public session, Williams argued that Dwyer was acting as a senator on behalf of his party, not as an individual. I think his intent [was] very clear, and I think his party [was] supporting his intent, Williams said. However, Christian Chessman, who represented the Students Party, said neither party had the referendum on its platform. The court unanimously ruled that Dwyer was acting as an individual. Im not going to agree we can tell a senator or anybody from either party theyre restricted from talking about a referendum they are doing on their own, said Election Commission chairman Wes Stephens. The commission also unanimously agreed that no violation occurred regarding the Students Party complaint about Swamp Party signs. the commission had ordered a cease and desist, which Chessman said the Swamp Party violated because the signs were still around Wednesday evening. However, there was no deadline on when the signs had to be removed. The Students Party was concerned about the signs being left unattended. These kinds of signs at campus, constitute irreparable harm, Chessman said. The commission decided that the signs were more like banners, which can be left unattended but need approval from the university and the supervisor of elections. Williams said once the party was aware of the cease and desist, it made an effort to remove the signs. Chessman said he plans to appeal the decision to the UF Supreme Court. Williams did not comment on the rulings after the hearing. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org.Campaign violations dismissed JENNA LYONSAlligator Contributing WriterInnovation Square is still being built, but it already secured two state awards for cutting-edge thinking. The Florida Redevelopment Association awarded the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency two awards for its work on Innovation Square: one for best innovative concept and one for one of the best urban redevelopment projects in the state, according to a press release. Innovation Square, located about two blocks from UF, is a 40-acre area dedicated to developing research building in Innovation Square, Florida Innovation Hub at UF, is as an incubator for startup companies. Were going to support entrepreneurship and creativity in our community, said Ed Poppell, director of economic development at Innovation Square. The Square could eventually have 5.5 million square feet of businesses, academic environments and apartments. Carol Westmoreland, executive director of the Florida Redevelopment Association, said a lot of people arent aware of how much work the city put into developing Innovation Square. The award committee selected the agency out of about 60 other entries. Kelly Huard Fisher, interim director for the Community Redevelopment Agency, said it began laying the groundwork for Innovation Square about two years ago. Gainesville Regional Utilities, Shands at UF and private companies are working with the agency on the plan. What sets the whole initiative apart is the level of collaboration and planning, Fisher said. You really dont see all these kinds of entities get together. Westmoreland agreed, saying the partnerships have made the project possible. Its really a beautiful thing in my book, she said.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionWhat is your opinion of Floridas No. 4 ranking in the latest AP Poll? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Ziva Receks slow start left UF in an 0-2 hole, but she and the Gators turned things around in Sundays win. See story, page 15. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSafety Matt Elam drops into coverage during Floridas 14-6 win against LSU on Saturday FLORIDA HELD LSU TO 42 YARDS RUSHING IN SATURDAYS WIN. JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer The Florida defense believed its 2011 performance at LSU was an aberration. A year after allowing LSU to run for 238 yards on 49 carries in a 41-11 loss, the Gators held the Tigers to just 42 yards on 25 rushes in Saturdays 14-6 win in The Swamp. We had a chip on our shoulder from last year, safety Josh Evans said. We knew that wasnt our ball last year. Were a better team this year. Saturdays game marked the third time in coach Will Muschamps tenure that the Gators forced three or more turnovers. The most important takeaway came in the third quarter after UF had built a 7-6 lead. LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger connected with receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on a deep ball down the right sideline for 56 yards to Floridas 23-yard line. Gators safety Matt Elam ripped the ball from Beckham as the two fell to the Beckham was down. Muschamp challenged the call, and it was overturned and ruled a fumble with possession going to the Gators. The ensuing drive ended with a 12-yard touchdown run from Mike Gillislee that put Florida ahead 14-6. It was all instincts, Elam said of the forced fumble. It was all playmaking. It was just great effort. Thats all it was. Thats all I could call it. The Tigers most successful drive was their opening possession. They went 64 from Drew Alleman. Jon Bostics personal foul after a 1-yard run from Spencer Ware helped the Tigers out of a second-and-17 bind. The Gators defense clamped down consecutive three-and-outs. The Tigers only accumulated 9 yards during that span. Dan Quinn and the defensive staff did a fabulous job, Muschamp said. We played well at the point of attack up front. UF defense dominates, bounces back from 2011 loss to LSU JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer against LSU on Saturday. However, he quickly returned to the sidelines. The junior weakside linebacker, who was playing with a cast on his fractured right thumb, suffered a left hamstring injury against the Tigers and exited the game during the second quarter. He did not return. He was running out there on that perimeter run on [LSUs] sideline and tweaked it a little bit, Gators coach Will Muschamp said. We expect him possibly back within two to three days. Ill know more Monday. Jenkins, who injured his right thumb during Floridas 20-17 win against Texas A&M on Sept. 8, underwent surgery on Sept. 10. He missed UFs wins against Tennessee and Kentucky. Gators safety DeAnte Saunders left the half, but he returned and made an impact against the Tigers. Saunders recorded two tackles and a fumble recovery on Saturday. UF released an update on the condition of Ronald Powells rehabilitation from an ACL tear in his left knee. Powell had a revision on his previously reconstructed ACL. Muschamp said Powells second surgery served mainly to clean up the juniors knee and will not force Powell to restart rehab. Muschamp is expected to release another update on Monday. Driskel has quiet day: Florida gained 237 yards of total offense against LSU. Only 61 yards came courtesy of Jeff Driskels arm. It was lowest total by a UF quarterback in a single game since at least 1996. On Saturday, the sophomore signal caller completed 8 of 12 attempts, which were After return, junior injured again THE ADAM BOMB As Will Muschamp jogged known for his piercing stares let out a smile. His team did it. The team he called defense look ordinary. At least for a half. After both defenses held the offenses to a combined 128 yards in the LSU offensively and defensively on the line of scrimmage during the last two quarters. When it was over, there wasnt any doubt the Gators were the stronger Stadium. After getting blown out by the Tigers in 2011, UF outgained LSU on the ground 176 yards to 42 and ran the football 58 times. LSU had 50 total offensive snaps. Florida, now ranked No. 4, belongs among the Southeastern Conference heavyweights. The noise the Gators part to a loud assistant coach who looks as if he should be the one making the tackles. Strength coach Jeff Dillman, who arrived in January from the IMG Performance Institute in Bradenton, has brought more toughness to UF. Alabama, South Carolina and Georgia: Its time to take notice. Dillman instituted an Olympicstyle lifting program, turning UF into the physical team Muschamp envisioned when he came to Florida in December of 2010. Hes crazy, redshirt senior left guard James Wilson said about Dillmans attitude during halftime on Saturday. He said, Thats why we play four, gentlemen. Thats why we play four. Thats what our whole motto is.

During the second half, Driskel threw only four passes. offensive snaps, including every play in the fourth quarter. If youre running the ball like that, why do anything else? Driskel said. While the Oviedo native did not do much on Saturday, he made several mistakes. Driskel held onto the football too long on certain occasions, including a crucial second-quarter fumble that gave LSU possession on UFs 7-yard line. Fortunately for Driskel, the Gators defense held, and the Tigers only managed A good defense and a good run game [are] a quarterbacks best friend, Driskel said. Luckily for me, we have both.

It was alive in there tonight, Muschamp said. Theres no question our fans made a difference in that football game. They energized our football team.

UF is the only FBS team this season that has held its opponents scoreless in the fourth quarter. Florida hasnt been this dominant UF won two national championships as strength coach. He left after last season to work with Urban Meyer at Ohio State. With Muschamps insistence on running the ball from under center, the Gators needed to increase their physicality, regardless of who the strength coach was. So far, so good. It was very evident on the footphysical football team that had good endurance against an outstanding, athletic bunch, especially on the defensive side of the ball, Muschamp said.

That resulted in a third-down conversion rate of just 7.7 percent. Prior to Saturday, Florida was allowing opponents to convert downs. Thoroughly dominating the Tigers in the second half provided defensive end Dominique Easley with a cathartic experience. Honestly, we wanted to come in this game and win, Easley said. But more, we wanted to come and hurt them. We wanted them to feel the pain that we felt last year, because we had hurt in our heart. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.

LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterIn a hostile environment at College Station, Texas, the underdog Gators tuned out the noise. No. 18 Florida bounced back Texas A&M scoreless in the second half en route to a 2-1 upset win on Sunday afternoon in front of 2,096 fans at Aggie Soccer Stadium. Its hard to totally rattle us, coach Becky Burleigh said. Our maturity came through. The win is the seventh straight for the Gators (10-3-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) and their secopponent. On Aug. 26, Florida knocked off then-No. 2 Duke 3-2 in overtime. The victory also snaps a 12game unbeaten streak for the Aggies (12-2-1, 6-1-1 SEC). Throughout the match, both attacks were aggressive. Each squad racked up 19 shots. when Shea Groom headed a corner kick from Beth West in the 22nd minute. They scored, and we kind of looked around, senior Erika Tymrak said. We knew that wasnt going to really affect us. As soon as we started connecting more passes, Eight minutes later, Florida responded with a score from Jo Dragotta on a set piece. The seniors free kick from the left side of the box sailed toward the far post. The ball traveled through redshirt senior McKenzie Barneys legs as she tussled with Aggie goalkeeper Jordan Day. The credit completely goes to [Barney], because it wouldnt have gone in if she didnt do a little tricky play and let it go in between her legs, Dragotta said. The goalkeeper wasnt expecting that. The Gators took the lead in the 39th minute when junior Adriana Leon booted a goal from 7 yards out. Tymrak and sophomore Havana Solaun earned the assist on Leons game-winning score. I heard [Leon] calling for it, so I played a little through ball, Tymrak said. She just nailed it. Despite ending the half up by a goal, Burleigh said she wasnt happy with her teams composure The Gators came out of the locker room with a methodical approach on defense and clamped down on the Aggies attack. Texas A&M failed to convert on nine shots in the second half. Sophomore goalkeeper Taylor Burke best eight saves. We did a great job of keeping our focus and keeping our compo sure, junior defender Taylor Travis said. The coaches talked to us about some different changes and movements and tactics at halftime, and we adjusted to that. Said Dragotta: We just stuck to our game plan. We know how to defend, and we took it upon our selves to defend for each other. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer As Ziva Recek goes, so do the Gators for better or for worse. Going into the third set of No. 11 Floridas (13-2, 7-0 Southeastern Conference) match the Slovenian freshman had a hitting clip betwo sets. But Recek forced her squad into a rhythm with each swing she took, and the Coach Mary Wise said the brains and the work ethic of her 6-foot outside hitter separate her from the typical freshman. Those assets helped Florida win despite falling behind 2-0 Arkansas. Ziva obviously carried us through some pretty dark moments in that match, Wise said. The thing weve been so impressed about Ziva from the get-go: one is obviously her volleyball IQ, but two is how hard she competes. Its a pretty good combination (for) an 18-year-old. by a Gator in a single match this season. And despite landing only 19 kills while racking said. Senior Tangerine Wiggs said Recek never seemed down during the match, even when against Kentucky. She added that Receks special skills at the outside hitter position make her a key component of a young Gators squad. She plays so relaxed, Wiggs said. Shes not playing like a freshman at all. Shes a huge part of our team. There are balls that Ziva can get over and go for kills that I dont know how she does it. I give all the credit to her. One of the main reasons Wise said the team leaned so heavily on Recek was because the non-existent early on against the Wildcats. The more Florida struggled to get the ball to its setter, Taylor Brauneis, the more it had to rely on Recek to dig the team out of a hole. When your team doesnt pass well, youre going to rely a whole lot on your outside hitter, Wise said. She took more swings than we would have liked, but there were times when Taylor didnt have many options. in its passing after the second set, and because of the improved passing she could deliver hitting percentage until the third set. Brauneis said it was the teams determination to improve, even when down, that brought the Gators back. We want to stay focused throughout the whole entire match, whether we were down or up, she said. Stay focused, celebrate at the end.

MAX MATTERNAlligator Writer Florida senior Lauren Embree was the No. 1 recruit coming out of high school, won two Southeastern Conference Player of the Year awards and secured the Gators national championship with a comeback victory in 2011. After Sunday, she can add a Grand Slam tournament win to her resume. The No. 3-seeded Embree defeated Virginias Julia singles championship of the Riviera/ITA All American Tournament. Elbaba, the fourth-ranked freshman in the nation, had been on a tear in the Riviera, winning 10 straight matches to get to the championship. Her hot start carried over to But Embree showed why she was the sixth-ranked player in the nation, displaying poise and skill while winning the second set. I think I played a little [Elbaba] was just teeing off on my shots, Embree said. Then I started being more aggressive and just kept Shes a great player and a tough competitor. Elbaba was serving with a Embree won four consecutive games to secure the match. Today was vintage Lauren Embree again, associate head coach Dave Balogh said. Julia came out hitting the ball as hard as she could and everything was going in. But once again, Lauren refused to go away. She just hung in there, competed, fought and scraped. Great players come up big in the clutch moments, and Lauren did that this afternoon. Embree is the fourth Gator to win the Riviera/ITA AllAmerican Singles Championship. Previous winners Jill nhoff (2001) and Allie Will (2011) all went on to play professionally after their collegiate careers at Florida. Embree will look to polish her resume and lead the Gators to another national championship this season. For now, Embree will live in the moment. It feels great and special to win this my senior year, Embree said.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 Florida 14, LSU 6 The senior running back inserted himself into the Heisman Trophy race, putting Floridas offense on his back in Saturdays win against LSU. Gillislee carried the ball 34 times for 146 yards, including 112 yards in the second half. He scored both UF touchdowns. What looked like a game-changing, 56-yard completion from Zach Mettenberger to Odell Beckham Jr. turned into arguably Floridas biggest defensive play of the season. Matt Elam stripped the ball from Beckham, negating the Tigers longest play from scrimmage. 25 plays, breaking LSUs will and sealing the victory. The Gators ran the ball 58 times overall, including 34 for Mike Gillislee the most by a UF running back since Fred Taylor ran 34 times against Auburn in 1997.
