Affordable Care Act, despite being in one of the demographics the changes may affect most. Nick Eagle said although the health care plan looks good on paper, there are many problems that go with it. Eagle, a 21-year-old UF economics and political science junior, wrote in an email that the plan is a bill that sounds attractive to people, but ultimately is the largest entitlement program of our generation, which will only lead to out of control costs, ever-growing debt and endless regulations.

The issue which has been an item of discussion at City Commission meetings for more than a year was sparked again by the Gainesville Roller Rebels request to sell alcohol at the city-owned Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Recreation Center. Under the current system, serving alcohol at outdoor events on public property goes against a city ordinance, so special approval from the commission is required. In September, the Public Safety Committee discussed a draft of legislation creating a new permitting system that would shorten the process of obtaining permission for alcohol-related events. Miriam Hill, president of the womens roller derby group, said at events at other locations. It boosts our revenues and attracts crowds, she said. Not everyone sees the proposed Gladys Perkins, a member of the Porters Community Crime Watch Committee, said she believes the considered change asks too much of the people who live in the area, particularly the families. She said allowing alcohol in the venue would bring it closer to children, who use the recreation center for sports practices. It just boggles my mind that someone would even think of doing that, she said. Perkins sent a letter of protest to Mayor Ed Braddy asking that the ordinance prohibiting alcohol stay in effect and explaining the proposed changes would insult the surrounding community. They are asking the east side people, Perkins said. But Hill disagrees. She said her sporting events could be a preventative solution for crime by providing a healthy alternative. We try to make our events as family-friendly as possible, she said. We get a lot of families and a lot of retirees. Hill said beer drinking is just part of the American sporting culture. Americans just want a beer with their hot dog, she said. We just want to be able to give that person a beer with their concessions. The potential policy change is expected to go to the City Commission for approval soon.Gainesville roller derby team rebels against alcohol rule Some opposed to beer salesCAMPUS CHERI BAILEYAlligator Contributing WriterOne by one, students inched closer to the Stephen C.

OConnell Center. SEXUAL DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINTS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE. SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Staff Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgA new campaign at UF aims to prevent sexual discrimination and harassment on campus. Paula Varnes Fussell, vice president of Human Resource Services for the university, said the campaigns purpose is to raise awareness about the dangers of sexual discrimination for faculty, staff and students. This is about making sure we have a campus where we can work and learn thats free of harassment, Fussell said. She said the campaign is in conjunction with the federal Title IX law, which states that discrimination on the basis of sex is prohibited in any education program. Posters adorned with the messages sexual misconduct is never okay and recognize, report, prevent will be placed around campus in dorms, bathrooms and lecture halls, Fussell said. Ongoing seminars on sexual discrimination will also be held by UF Title IX coordinators throughout campus this month. She said sexual discrimination complaints are expected to increase as people become aware of what it is and how to report it. This is a new campaign, but this is not a new issue of importance for the university, she said. Daviel Salgado, an 18-yearold UF engineering freshman, said hes unsure if the campaign will be enough of a deterrent. Hanging up posters is good and all, but I dont think it will help much for people getting sexually assaulted, he said. Elnora Mitchell, UF Title IX coordinator and assistant director of equity and diversity, said the universitys efforts are going to continue with each batch of incoming students every Fall. She said her team of Title IX plaints and ensure they are responded to and both parties We will treat all parties involved in any type of complaint equitably and fairly, she said.

Congress: You better work, b***hThe late poet and novelist Charles Bukowski has a quote that perfectly sums up our thoughts on Congress impasse regarding the continuing resolution. Were all going to die, all of us, what a circus! Bukowski wrote. That alone should make us love each other but it doesnt. by nothing. The trivialities, in this case, are the GOPs angry constituents that the party continues to cater to, even at the expense of the rest of the country. On Tuesday, the government shut down duh because the Republicans keep trying to dismantle parts of the Affordable Care Act, even though went live yesterday. The majority of the country has made it clear they support Obamacare, but that didnt stop conservatives from attempting to save face by attempting to pass bills that had no chance of being signed by President Barack Obama. On Tuesday, lawmakers met, but not much has happened. According to The Wall Street Journal, Republicans are criticizing Senate Democrats for being unwilling to negotiate an end to the standoff, a standoff which caused furloughs of more than 800,000 federal employees. According to The Wall Street Journal, Chris Krueger, a political analyst at Guggenheim Partners, summed up the situation in a research note on Tuesday: There is no evidence to suggest that the federal government will re-open anytime soon as the various factions in Washington remain at odds with one another and themselves. While essential parts of the government will remain emnumber of federal activities such as the Internal Revenue Seroperations will be suspended. Its quite the circus, especially considering that the cost of shutting down and re-opening the government is larger than simply allowing the government to continue running. Everyone is upset about the shutdown, and VICE summed up the crux of everyones frustrations: has to approve routine spending every couple of months, VICE contributor Harry Cheadle wrote. Its stupid that that Congress can get held up by a few dozen hardliners who represent an angry minority and can get automatically reelected thanks to gerrymandering; its stupid that something so self-evidently stupid as the shutdown is happening because a few politicians have no problem putting a dent in the economy and closing national parks to prove something to their stupid f***ing constituents. As the negotiations progressed (or failed to), journalists on Capitol Hill reported that members of Congress had smelled like booze, Cheadle wrote. Can you blame them? If my job was that stupid, Id be drinking, too. With the debt-ceiling issue looming, Congress well, mostly the GOP doesnt have time to waste pandering to a small, angry group of constituents. So get it together, guys. The National Zoo panda cam depends on it.Pale blue dot faces biological extinctionSome years ago, a photograph of our planet was taken from a spacecraft hovering at the edge of the solar system. A faint, bluish speck, known as Earth, can be seen in the picture. Astronomer Carl Sagan commented on the pale blue dot. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. Shortly afterward, Sagan had a fascinating debate with Ernst Mayr, the legendary biologist. When asked universe, Mayr said, Not likely. Mayr reminded scientists that despite billions of biological species having lived on our planet, high intelligence has originated only once, in human beings. Perhaps high intelligence is not at all favored by natural selection, as Mayr said. Earthlings currently have a tool powerful enough to destroy all complex life on the planet: the nuclear bomb. Even using 5 percent of the global nuclear stockpile would render our planet uninhabitable. Nukes have put us on the verge of self-destruction. ers targeting Irans nuclear ambitions, as reducing nukes in the war-torn Middle East would be a crucial step toward a nuclear-free world. For decades, the world has pushed for a nuclearweapon-free zone in the Middle East. The entire Arab world and even Iran has cooperated with the nuclear-weapon-free zone proposal. Only one country blocks the path to progress: Israel. A country that daily commits war crimes against innocent civilians, Israel has a nuclear weapons program so secretive that the plant technician who blew the whistle was drugged and kidnapped from Italy by Israeli agents, eventually endurment in Israeli prison. Heres a funny thing: Were best buddies. Israel is the leading recipient of U.S. foreign aid. Because weve got their back, the rest of the world can forget about forging a peaceful Middle East. In the meantime, wouldnt it be nice to distract the American public by focusing on Irans nonexistent nukes? About 45 percent of all operational nuclear warheads are held by the U.S. Before American exceptionalism creeps in, lets recall that were the only ones to have ever used nukes in a war, killing 135,000 people mostly civilians and ruining generations of Japanese lives. From space, our planet is a dust particle. Earth aphumanity has endured has occurred on that tiny pixel. Despite most people wanting to respect the fragility of that lonely speck known as Earth by living in peace with others, world leaders Americas politicians being no exception have hijacked humanitys resources Life has become endangered.

The program featured two co-hosts, one liberal and one conservative, debating against each other and with one or two newsmaking guests individuals of recent political importance. ligned by critics as a pointless and destructive demonthe critics argued, were exposed to a loud and angry debate in which claims were never fact-checked, and both sides ended the program more divided and entrenched in their beliefs than ever before. peared on the program. Stewart lambasted the format for constructive political debate was akin to saying Stewarts comments resonated with Americans fed with a vengeance. Starting on Sept. 9, CNN brought The show now features four alternating co-hosts. Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obamas 2012 re-election campaign, and Progress and a former adviser to Obama, represent the liberal side of the political spectrum. Conservatives are represented by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and political commentator S.E. Cupp. As if the rancorous and counterproductive debates themselves, the show is now making a mockery of CNNs own ethics policies. executive vice president of news standards and practices, said Gingrich would be expected to disclose all the show after questions arose concerning Gingrichs political action committee, American Legacy PAC, which has given tens of thousands of dollars in donations to a wide range of conservative political candidates. If Newt is helping fund a candidate and that candidates on the show, or being discussed on the show, of course hell disNewt Gingrich hosted Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to discuss current political issues such as government spending and the economy. Gingrich failed to disclose that American Legacy had donated thousands of dollars to the campaigns of both candidates. Rather than reprimand Gingrich for his blatant ethical violations, CNN instead elected to rewrite its ethtransparency that Americans have come to expect from the media. In a statement released to Media Matters for America, a media watchdog group, Davis made clear that The statement read: We are clarifying the policy and making it clear Newt Gingrich is not in violation. The policy: If a a politician who appears on the program or is the focus of the program, disclosure is not required during the show since the co-hosts political support is obvious by Davis rationalization of Gingrichs behavior is deeply disturbing and misleading. Political views within both the Republican and Democratic parties are diverse and wide-ranging.

CNNs abandonment of all standards of disclosure of the media. Elliot Levy is a UF political science and public relations junior. His column runs on Wednesdays.Column Elliot On Sept. 5, 2012, then-Senate-candidate Elizabeth Warren, during a speech at the Democratic National Convention, told attentive audience members and people watching at home an inconvenient truth. She said the people of the American middle class feel like Her speech won the hearts of Americans across the nation, and it was roughly two months later that she had won something else: the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts. It didnt seem to be too long before she was in the Senate, asking tough questions to leaders of ing for the rights of everyday, hardworking Americans. It was also not too long before Washington. My nerdy favorite people in the Democratic to Hillary Clintons. And even as politics in Washington seemed to get more dysfunctional by the day, Sen. Warren and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton still do not cease to inspire me. It took until my recent watching of the critically acbefore I realized what I needed to take away from my fathat my two biggest role models were women politicians and that it is probably historically remarkable for a collegeaged male interested in public service in the United States to say that. But, I did not feel like that was an adequate enough takeaway. So, I sat down and began to think long and hard. I recalled the documentary, the inequalities it revealed and Sen. Warrens convention speech. I arrived at my takeaway. There was not just a system in the United States rigged against the middle class as Sen. Warren described, but also one clearly rigged against women. What else can explain the fact that despite the American population being roughly 51 percent women, women representation in Congress is at a dismal 18.3 percent? Thats neither fair, nor is it just coincidence. Despite my two biggest role models being Clinton and Warren, it is still clear to me that the system is rigged to deter women ensuring leadership is male-dominated by insisting that a womans beauty comes from her body and not her mind. People continue to claim America is becoming more equal for women and discrimination based on sex is ending. Without discounting the progress made by womens rights activists over the past century, the fact of the matter is that there is still so much work to do and still so many wrongs to right. Thinking discrimination based on sex in America is over while television commercials and magazine ads continue to display impossible-to-obtain standards of beauty for women is quite foolish. This will only ensure the chips remain stacked against future women who dream of representing Americans at the city-, stateor federalgovernment level. The idea that our country can continue percent of our countrys representative seats is equally as foolish. I believe something needs to be done now. There will women who decide to pass on public leadership in the future if we do not change the system right now. This is not an issue for Democrats or an issue for Republicans: This an issue for all Americans in this country who believe in fairness and equality. I believe strongly in the idea that and a problem can only occur if we refuse to admit when something is broken. Lets admit that we need more womwomen. Lets start here at UF by promoting equality and stacked against the middle class, lets start unrigging the harmful system against women. There is a distinct urgency that comes with this, and we must start today. Troy Epstein is a UF political science sophomore. Guest columnTroy EpsteinSpeaking Out

ASHLEY CRANEAlligator Contributing WriterEvery Friday at 3 p.m., Doctor Robert Ramsthaler gets into his red pickup truck and heads to Main Street Bar & Billiards. He is not there to drink. Hes there for therapy billiard therapy. Its geometry and motion, but its also an excuse for people to gather and talk about life, Ramsthaler said. In Britain, they have teatime. In Mexico, they have siesta time. In America, what do we have? More coffee or another drink. For Ramsthaler, billiard therapy is an escape from the daily routine that allows people to learn something in a social setting while enjoying themselves. Its called play pool, he said. Its really all just for fun. But Jennifer Alonso, a UF Counseling and Wellness Center psychologist, said billiard the act of examining your personal habits and identifying if there are alternative ways to do things that could make your life more healthy. Ramsthalers groups meet twice a week, every week, for no charge to learn how to shoot seemingly impossible shots. But people often leave with an understanding of things much bigger than winning a game of pool, he said. patient, coming back for two years. Miller said when the two started playing pool, hed leave conversations thinking, Actually, thats amazing. This stuff should be in a book. Miller is now writing that book and still attends nearly every session. The book, to be titled Billiard Therapy, will contain about 100 pages of philosophy Miller has collected from Ramsthaler during the therapy sessions. Miller said many of the ways to handle situations in billiards apply to life. In pool, its easy to take a shot you know you can sink, Miller said, but you learn to stop and think about whether the shot will leave you with a better opportunity down the road. Ramsthaler didnt attend school to be a doctor, but he said if the streets gave away Ph.D.s, he would have one in billiards. In the inner-city neighborhood he grew up in, he said it was often safer on the streets than in the hallways of his middle school. the pool hall opened its doors at 11 a.m. It was a safe place, and sometimes Id stay until 10 p.m., he said. In the neighborhood out. He said growing up in a ghetto helped him learn that much of playing pool is about having an attitude something he calls swagger. He said when you look like you know what youre doing, you start to believe that, and it becomes true. Miller walked up to a pool table in the smoky front room of Main Street Bar & Billiards when Ramsthaler asked, Dude, whats with your attitude? Miller, slightly taken aback, replied, What attitude? Exactly. Get one, Ramsthaler said. Now, grab a stick, and lets play a game of pool. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9Ashley Crane / Alligator FEATUREPlaying billiards provides therapy, life lessons for localsWilliam A. England / AlligatorTechnicolor Tuesday ANA FAJARDOAlligator Contributing WriterSustainable UF is giving students and staff the opportunity to pick up weekly shares of produce on campus. Registration is open for the Gator Community Supported Agriculture program, returning this fall with three farms for the 2013-2014 growing season, said Stephanie Sims, implementation coordinator with UFs OfSwallowtail Farm, the Family Garden Organic Farm and Frog Song Organics are offering about 300 memberships total. Pickups for some of the farms will begin this month, Sims said. Members pay a lump sum or installments to receive a weekly share of fresh produce from a local farm. The fee pays the farmer for production costs. The cost for a membership depends on the farm chosen, length of the season and type of share purchased. On average, an individual share generally ranges from $20 to $25 a week. Katelynn Smith, a 20-yearold UF architecture major, knew about CSAs from visiting a town that used the program. I think people around here would be interested in it, she said. This year, pickup will be at the all-decal lot off Bledsoe Drive near Southwest Recreation Center on Thursdays.Produce comes to UFLIfeFESt T YLeE ELIZABETH BROWNAlligator Contributing WriterWhen Charlene Ochogo woke up from a nap one afternoon, she was confused when her boyfriend arrived at her dorm. She thought he was surprising her, but she had texted him saying she needed him to pick her up. But the 21-year-old UF telecommunication senior had no memory of ever pressing send. She had sleep texted. And shes not alone. Recently, sleep specialists report sleep-texting is becoming more widespread among teenagers and young adults. Phone users will send text messages in their sleep, only to wake up and read conversations they do not remember having. Dr. Mary Wagner, a UF associate professor of pediatrics and sleep specialist, said sleep-texting is a form of parasomnia, which is a category of sleep disorders that includes sleepwalking and night terrors. She said because the brain is still working in sleep, sleep-texting could happen. Because young people are constantly on their cellphones, its not unusual that they could text as if they were awake, she said. Sleep-texting most likely occurs during stage N3 sleep, which is a deep, slow-brain-wave sleep, she said, and the content in the text messages could even be linked to dreams. Ochogo uses her phone as an alarm clock, so it is near her when she sleeps, allowing her to sleep text. I have texted things that are coherent or incoherent, she said. She said she has sleep texted more than once, and it usually happens during afternoon naps. Wagner said sleep-texting not only disrupts sleep, but it also could mean people risk sending regrettable material they would never remember. She said people who sleep text should lock their phones before bed and keep phones away from them when they sleep to avoid potentially inappropriate messages. Young people are really good at texting, she said. Its not unusual for that to creep in. Jeffrey Reale, a 20-year-old UF public relations senior, said he is a serial sleep-texter. Ive texted girls who I shouldnt have, he said. Occasionally typing out song lyrics to friends, he said he thinks the texts are sometimes sent as he is falling asleep. Reale said hes even had a 30-second phone conversation mid-sleep. God only knows what I said, he said.Sleep-texting becoming tiring problem for confused studentsWagner

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NFLFree agents David Nelson and Jermaine Cunningham signed contracts with the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers, respectively, on Tuesday. Jillian Graff is producing for the Florida soccer team despite playing limited minutes. Read the story on page 16. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer@joe_morganSeveral Gators heard their phones buzz and ring on Saturday morning. A text message from offensive coordinator Brent Pease read: Nature walk. 1:30. Dont be late. The proposition was nothing new for Pease. The Moscow, Idaho, native traditionally took his players on nature walks prior to road games in previous jobs. since joining coach Will Muschamps staff at Florida. You just go out. You see different parts. You talk about things, Pease said. Some kids are smart. You never realize that a kid from Florida understands that the bark on a birch tree sheds.

I like the outdoors. And whats the biggest challenge? Theyre like 18-to 21-year-old kids. They dont pay attention at all, Pease said. They all have attention issues at times. Quarterback Tyler Murphy was one player who paid attention. career start in Floridas 24-7 victory against Kentucky on Saturday night in Lexington, Ky., enjoyed the nature walk. The redshirt junior said the activity cleared his head and relieved some anxiety. He knows a lot about nature, Murphy said of Pease. Its kind of cool just to learn about different trees and bushes and stuff like that. It was fun. But how well did Murphy pay attention? What did I learn? Uh, thats awful, Murphy said Monday. I learned a bunch of different stuff. I cant think of anything off the top of my head. You know, I learned a few things about oak trees, saw grass, and just stuff like that. Pease assured reporters Tuesday that Murphy did indeed learn during the nature walk. An outdoorsman like Pease ensured Murphy gained knowledge from the experience. He learned something. You just caught him off guard, Pease said. If you would have really given him time to think about it, he would have known that.

He lost a friend. Jacobs, who is Easleys roommate, took the senior defensive tackles season-ending knee injury especially hard. It was a heartbreaker, Jacobs said. It was probably one of the worst things Ive been through, just losing him and losing that presence. That presence takes more than one player to replace. Sophomore Jonathan Bullard moved inside against Kentucky and played his best game at Florida, coach Will Muschamp said. He worked at defensive tackle during training camp in preparation for a potential injury along the line. The work paid off. Bullard recorded three tackles and 1.5 sacks against the Wildcats.

Jonathan Bullard and Dante Fowler Jr. if you dont know those names, write them down now. With Sharrif Floyd in the NFL, Omar Hunter trying to catch on in the pros, Dominique Easley out for the season and Ronald Powell at linebacker, Floridas defensive line is in the hands of those two sophomores. Bullard and Fowler have progressed from touted recruits to forces on the line in one year, and they are only going to get better. Both players made strong impressions last season in limited time. Fowler made 30 tackles, including 8.5 for losses and 2.5 sacks. Bullard had 27 a loss and 1.5 sacks. All of those stats will likely be surpassed this season. Bullard has 10 tackles and already reached his sack total from 2012. Fowler has six tackles behind the line and three sacks. The Gators need that. Easley missing the rest of the season is not a death sentence for Floridas pass rush and run defense, but it does put UFs season in the Bullard, Fowler needed to anchor ailing defensive line Adam Lichtensteintwitter: @alichtenstein24 SEE NOTES, PAGE 15 SEE ADAM, PAGE 15 SEE NATURE, PAGE 15 You never realize that a kid from Florida understands that the bark on a birch tree sheds.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer@jczuprynThey will single you out. Pick on you. And then cheer when you fail. When Taylor Brauneis and Taylor Unroe stand behind the service line, ball in hand, they do not mind being bullies. Were comfortable back there behind nitely a mental game. Just to be able to pick on certain players, pick on certain passers. Each Taylor approaches service runs differently, though. Unroes jump serve, which consistently reaches 55 miles per hour, tests the defenses reaction time. Coach Mary Wise said the junior libero has increased her serves velocity every season, making Unroe one of the Gators favorite go-to point scorers behind the service line. She came to us with the jump serve, but its gotten faster as the years have gone on, Wise said. Were able to score points on her serve, whether its an ace or keeping the defense on their heels. Brauneis attacks opponents with her any spin, similar to how a baseball pitcher throws a knuckleball. tell exactly where a serve from Brauneis will end up. is, Unroe said breaking down their own serves with associate coach Dave Boos is where the Gators can make the most improvements. Im familiar with ... what my body actually feels like when Im doing something, Unroe said. Especially on serving because Dave will be like, Rotate your hips through the ball. Now I know what it means. I know what it feels like. I know what it looks like, (and) I know what my serve looks like when it goes over the net, so its easier to change something because I actually know what Im trying to get to. This season, Brauneis and Unroe rank ence with 0.5 and 0.4 service aces per set, respectively. Florida averages 1.7 aces per set, which is third in the SEC behind Missouri and Mississippi State. Boos said serving shifts the balance of the match and determines what rotation the Gators use in a tight game. Serving is the great equalizer, Boos said. Its actually a big part of our strategy in terms of playing time. We need to score points (at) every position to maximize this season. We have to maximize the team with serving. We cant have any rotation where were giving points away. 14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2013 Kan Li / Alligator StaffJunior libero Taylor Unroe waves to the crowd during introductions prior to Floridas four-set victory against Western Michigan on Sept. 14 in the OConnell Center.

Easley addressed the team before it departed for Lexington, Ky. The message was simple. Now, with a hard-nosed Razorbacks offense arriving in the The Swamp, there will be plenty of action for the defensive line. He just told us just never take anything for granted, Jacobs said. Because he never thought that on the Tuesday of practice, that would be his last play in college. He just wanted to tell us to take advantage of every opportunity. Jacobs recalled the scene last Tuesday afternoon when Florida lost its best interior lineman and emotional leader. As Florida turns its focus to Arkansas, the pain still lingers. He was just in shock. Just mostly in shock, Jacobs said. He can believe it was like a dream. Kicker burns Gators: Joe Mansour captured the envy of kickers everywhere when he outran Ronald Powell and Loucheiz Purifoy to the end zone in Commonwealth Stadium. The Kentucky kicker caught Florida by surprise with his 25going to lie, Florida kicker Austin Hardin said. Every kicker wants to go run a touchdown. We actually it was funny game all the kickers went up to him and congratulated him and were like, Man, a disappointing start. He has made only replacing Caleb Sturgis, missed a 53-yard attempt on Saturday. The kick followed a Florida timeout after the play clock had dwindled too low. With junior punter Kyle Christy struggling as well, Muschamp put his special teams on notice last week by opening up both starting spots. Hardin has the kicking job for now, and a former teammate in his corner helping him adjust to the job. Sturgis, now kicking for the Miami Dolphins, visited the Gators before they faced the Hurricanes in Miami. The back-to-back din in the early going this season. Sturgis not only imparted knowledge about life in the NFL, he gave Hardin a simple how-to lesson for this season. His main message is to continue to doing.

Running backs were not invited, so Jones did not make the trip. Pease responded: Well, you know Sometimes, it is boring. tice is probably boring.

The defense has to step up and take over games to give Florida a shot against good teams. That was a tall order before Easley suffered his injury. Now, it looks even taller. But if UF is going to continue to dominate on defense, Bullard and Fowler must lead the unit. The pairing has the ability to terrorize offensive lines.

MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoJillian Graff has proved that she does not need to be a starter to score. The junior forward has not seen much playing time freshman Savannah Jordan holds the starting forward position for the Gators but Friday she played as if she had been a starter all season. Coach Becky Burleigh substituted Graff into the game for Jordan in the 68th minute against Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss. The Gators were already up 3-1 against the Rebels and controlled possession in a more physical second half. Graff increased the lead by another goal. Outside back Tessa Andujar ran the box. Andujar crossed the ball to the middle, but no one controlled it when it entered. It bounced around a couple people, Graff said. I was able to get a hold of it and head it in. Graffs header sealed Floridas 4-1 victory against Ole Miss. It was her time Florida has scored from a header this season. It was a relief for me, Graff said. As a forward, youre supposed to score goals, so it felt good to do just that. Although the Medina, Ohio, native has not played much for the Gators, she is experienced at scoring. During her freshman year, Graffs winner. She chipped the ball over Alabama goalkeeper Justine Bernier afminutes. Her goal set the momentum for the rest of the game en route to a 4-1 Gators victory against the Crimson Tide. Graff is also familiar with giving the Gators a cushion. In 2012, she win over Georgia. The junior now has six career scores. Although Graff is seeing limited in a row she only started in two games in both 2011 and 2012 she makes an impact. My role is probably being a good asset to come off the bench since I dont start right now and a big supporter for the people that do play, Graff said. Burleigh added: When players are called on and they step up, that always gives them more opportunity. Its a great thing when we have reserves scoring goals because we know we have some depth that we can count on. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2013 Kan Li / Alligator StaffJillian Graff (21) dribbles past Alabamas Abby Lutzenkirchen (33) during Floridas 3-0 victory against Alabama on Sept. 20 at James G.
