Syracuse football squares off with robust Notre Dame defense

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 27, 2014 at 12:31 pm Contact Jacob: | @Jacob_Klinger_ As a fan of football, Tim Lester is amazed by Notre Dame’s defense. He enjoys watching it. When he does, he said he doesn’t know what’s coming.But in the eyes of Syracuse’s quarterbacks coach, the No. 8 Fighting Irish’s (3-0) secondary poses a serious threat. Lester said the Orange (2-1) won’t overly adjust to Notre Dame’s defense. The Irish play more man-to-man coverage than any team SU has faced this season and run a series of highly unpredictable sets on third down, fueled by unusually versatile athletes.“It’s trying to figure out and put ourselves in a situation, a good situation when they’ve got people running all over the place,” Lester said. “And it’s all the Rex Ryan stuff on third down.”Fighting Irish defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder joined the team after coaching the New York Jets linebackers last season. Ryan, the Jets head coach, is known for using a version of the 46 defense honed by his father Buddy, with the Chicago Bears of the 1980s.The defense is known for bringing pressure from all angles with unusual personnel — for instance, safeties playing as linebackers.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s had people influence his creativity when he was with the Jets,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said. “I see some of the same carryover, some of the same man concepts.”Sometimes, Shafer said, VanGorder will have his defense play man-to-man coverage on one side of the field and zone on the other.Lester has been giving Syracuse players stats on the percentages of which kind of coverage Notre Dame plays out of each defensive formation, he said. Most teams run man coverage as its fifth- or sixth-most used defense, Lester said, but it’s Notre Dame’s third-most frequently used.And when the Irish slips into its 3-3-5 set — what some teams call “Okie” or “star” packages — they drop defensive lineman Romeo Okwara into coverage, Lester said.  Where Lester usually sees a lineman lumber off as defensive back trots onto the field, UND keeps the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Okwara on the field.“He’s that big and athletic that he can play the nickel, which is impressive,” Lester said.While Shafer credits VanGorder as a creative coach, he’s also one managing a highly talented defense.“It’s always easy to be creative when you’ve got guys that can run around and do those things,” Shafer said. “And he’s got a bunch of them.” Commentslast_img read more

Emma Russell sets all-time goals record in 5-0 win

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 20, 2015 at 6:50 pm Contact Sam: | @Sam4TR Needing one goal to become No. 2 Syracuse’s all-time leading goal scorer, senior forward Emma Russell intercepted a Yale outlet pass and broke toward the net. She put home the 48th goal of her career to unseat Lindsey Conrad as the program’s top scorer and spearheaded SU’s (7-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) 5-0 win over Yale (2-3) on Sunday at Johnson Field.The Orange outshot the Bulldogs 36-6, including 26 shots on goal. Additionally, SU drew 26 corners.Nine minutes into the contest, Emma Lamison, a transfer from Northeastern, scored on a pass from Alma Fenne. It was Lamison’s fifth point of the weekend after scoring the game-winner over No. 11 Boston College Saturday and adding an assist in the game.Three minutes later, Zoe Wilson assisted a Roos Weers goal and the Orange headed to halftime with a 2-0 lead. It was a contrast from Syracuse’s last two games that have been headlined by second-half comebacks against ranked opponents.The Orange didn’t stop rolling in the second half as Russell scored her record-breaking goal just over a minute into the second frame.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn a day when one of SU’s seniors punctuated her career with a record-breaking goal, freshman Niki Neidhart scored her first collegiate goal to pile on the Orange’s lead.Alyssa Manley converted on a penalty corner chance in the final minutes to cement the 5-0 final score.Senior goalkeeper Jess Jecko saw four shots on net and turned away each of them to record her third shutout in seven games this season.Syracuse returns to J.S.

Sakash: No. 1 upsets shouldn’t be so surprising

first_imgWhy should anyone be surprised?From the nascence of the 2010-2011 college basketball regular season, it was obvious that this was going to be a wildly unpredictable year.Okay, so maybe not this unpredictable, but still there was never a clear-cut favorite. Ohio State and Kansas were the closest things, followed by Duke, especially when Kyrie Irving returned to the rotation, but what had any of those teams done to stoke confidence in the hearts of their fans?The number one overall seed in the tournament field, Ohio State, may have had the most impressive resume in the country. It went 34-2 in the regular season, losing only at Wisconsin and Purdue, two extremely difficult places to play.But alarms, bells and sirens should have fired off everywhere when Northwestern took the Buckeyes to overtime in the Big Ten Tournament. Northwestern is terrible.The great teams of the past decade, like the two North Carolina clubs, the Jayhawks from 2008 and even the Florida teams who won back to back championships, take teams like Northwestern and reduce them to piles of Wildcat manure; they certainly don’t let them hang around.The rest of the Big Ten, aside from maybe Wisconsin and Purdue, two teams who themselves had looked terrible at times during the season, was really bad this year. Indiana can barely make shots, Iowa is not much better, Michigan State was a ghost of itself and Northwestern was, well, Northwestern.It all amounts to a conference for Ohio State to beat upon and bolster a regular season record that was rendered meaningless when Kentucky, a team that struggled in an SEC that was much worse than the Big Ten, beat the Buckeyes in the tournament this past weekend.Then there’s Kansas. It is probably the biggest mystery of the tournament. In every game it played, including round one (or two or one and a half or whatever the NCAA wants to call it), it looked and played uncomfortably tight.Kansas let Boston U and Illinois, two teams it has four times more talent than, hang around until the late stages of each game. The Jayhawks then proceeded to shoot 2-21 (that’s 9.5% if you’re keeping score at home) from the 3-point line in their loss to Virginia Commonwealth.It’s a problem for Kansas that’s beginning to evolve into a trend, as last season the Jayhawks, who were once again a one-seed, were bounced unexpectedly in the second round by Northern Iowa.If Bill Self hadn’t brought his team to the promise land in 2008, it’s quite possible he might be out, or at least placed upon an extremely warm chair, after another wildly disappointing finish to a season with a roster that should have at least made it to the Final Four.The final question mark on probably the most unpredictable tournament of recent memory is fixed behind Duke.It might deserve a pass this year because of the situation it was put in when freshman standout Kyrie Irving returned right before the tournament.What does a coach do when the talented freshman, who proved before he suffered an injury that kept him out of the lineup for the majority of the season and could take over games in the flash of an eye, returns?Could Mike Krzyzewski have sat him out in fear of sacrificing the on-court chemistry of his team?Of course not. When the most talented player (possibly) in the country is available on the roster, he’s got to play.Perhaps it wouldn’t have made a difference. National Player of the Year Candidate Derrick Williams and Arizona looked like a team possessed by greatness that night, and Kyrie Irving or not, Duke probably would have lost that game. Probably.In any case, the Final Four has arrived, where the four teams remaining have seeds that add up to 26, which is an NCAA record.On one side of the draw (that’s tennis lingo for those not versed in the sport), there are in fact some marquee names! Hoorah!Kentucky takes on hall of famer Jim Calhoun, Kemba Walker and the hottest team in the country, otherwise known as Connecticut.In any normal year, it’d be easy to say that the winner of the Kentucky-Connecticut national semifinal game will certainly go on to beat whichever team comes out of the other side between Butler and VCU.But it’s not any other year; it’s this year. And who the heck knows?last_img read more

Clayton Kershaw injury update: Dodgers ace takes ‘good first step’ with rehab start

first_imgMORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNKershaw was pulled in the top of the fifth while the Oklahoma City Dodgers trailed, 2-0, earning a no-decision.”Good first step and kind of got through everything I needed to, got up to that fifth inning,” Kershaw said, per The Associated Press. “Got some guys on base, worked out of the stretch, did multiple different things. So it was a good day. … Come out of it feeling good and get ready for the next one.”Kershaw’s streak of eight straight Opening Day starts ended this season after he felt inflammation in his left shoulder early in spring training. Kershaw and the Dodgers were optimistic he would be ready for the season opener but ultimately decided he needed more time to recover. The Dodgers indicated earlier this week that the left-hander would need one more rehab outing before returning to the Dodgers rotation. Kershaw, however, wants to ensure he’s completely ready to return before ending his rehab stint.”I’d love to pitch the next one for the (L.A.) Dodgers, but I also don’t want to put the bullpen at risk with a pitch count that’s too low,” he said.A three-time Cy Young Award winner, Kershaw signed a three-year, $93 million extension in November. He posted a 2.73 ERA in 2018 and he is 153-69 with a 2.39 ERA in 11 MLB seasons, all with the Dodgers. Clayton Kershaw took a positive step forward in his rehab process as he continues to recover from shoulder inflammation. In front of 12,472 fans who came out to Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, the Dodgers ace gave up two runs and four hits in 4 1/3 innings Thursday during his rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City. He threw 61 pitches against the San Antonio Missions, the Brewers’ top farm club, and also walked two and struck out six as he settled into a groove.last_img read more

Clergymen Accused of Sexual Abuse

first_imgThe proposed legislation is due to go before the Senate judiciary committee March 7. If approved, the change in law would apply to all sex abuse cases, not just those involving the Catholic Church. The Diocese of Trenton released the names of 30 clergymen Feb. 13 who had been “credibly accused” of sexually abusing minors, part of an attempt at transparency at a time when state law enforcement is probing sexual misconduct at dioceses across New Jersey. “Our first responsibility must always be to those who have endured sexual abuse as minors and the release of these names is our effort to express acceptance of their allegations as credible and to indicate the status of their alleged abusers,” Bishop David M. O’Connell said in a message posted on the Diocese of Trenton website. The 30 men – 28 priests and two deacons – served at churches and schools across a diocese that spans Mercer, Ocean, Burlington and Monmouth counties. Of that total, 17 of them are dead and 13 have been removed from the ministry, according to the diocese. “While this is a positive first step towards transparency and accountability, I hope this spirit of openness continues during the course of our ongoing investigation and in response to our requests for records and information,” he said. “Despite the recent actions by the dioceses, our investigation remains ongoing because no institution or individual is immune from accountability.” Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said in a statement Feb. 13 that he was “pleased to see that our task force’s grand jury investigation has prompted the dioceses to finally take some measures to hold predator priests accountable.” “As a policy, and in an effort to protect and respect the privacy and well-being of victims, the Diocese of Trenton will not disclose further details about any of the specific allegations that led to a cleric’s inclusion in the published list of names,” diocese spokeswoman Rayanne Bennett said by email Feb. 25. This list of churches and schools where the 30 men served ran the gamut, from those in Red Bank to Rumson to Holmdel, among other places. Representatives of area churches directed questions to the diocese or did not return phone calls seeking comment. All five dioceses in New Jersey published the names of 188 clergymen who had been credibly accused of sexually abusing a minor. The timing of that action came roughly six months after New Jersey’s highest-ranking law enforcement official formed a task force in September to probe alleged sexual abuse by Catholic clergy around the state and attempts to cover up the crimes. In addition to providing their names and when they were born, the diocese listed the year each man was ordained and where he served. The list showed 19 of the 30 clergymen had multiple victims, although there was no information released about when or where the incidents occurred. “All allegations of the sexual abuse of a minor by clergy were reported to law enforcement upon the Diocese’s having received the complaint as per our memorandum of understanding with the prosecutors and the State Attorney General in 2002,” Bennett said.“Also, since 2002, parishes are notified when a priest is removed because of a credible allegation of the sexual abuse of a minor, and many of these already published in diocesan and secular media reports.” This comes as state lawmakers in NewJersey are looking to extend the statute oflimitations for victims of sexual abuse to filecivil lawsuits. Among other provisions of theproposed legislation, child victims would haveuntil they turn 55 years old to sue. “So that will be one option for survivors is to participate in that claims program,” said Ben Andreozzi, a Pennsylvania lawyer whose firm represents more than 100 victims of Catholic clergy abuse in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including those against the Diocese of Trenton. Access the full list on the Diocese of Trenton website at “The problem is not how to deal with it ecclesiastically. The problem is really how to deal with it civilly,” said Jo-Renee Formicola, a professor of political science at Seton Hall University and expert on church-state relations. “Should they be reporting what they consider to be sins to civil authorities as crimes? And the question is, is it their responsibility to report crimes or is it their responsibility only to deal with sin?” Catholic Church leaders in New Jersey also have formed a compensation fund for victims of church sex abuse that occurred when they were children. As part of accepting money from the fund, they must agree “not to engage in any further litigation against the particular Diocese,” according to one of the rules of the fund. This week, Grewal’s office declined to say if it intended to take legal action against any of the dioceses in New Jersey. But for the church, dealing with clerical sex abuse raises questions about their responsibility to government authority. “It is our hope that thepublic presentation of thesenames will contribute tohealing the awful woundsthat victims have endured atthe hands of some clergy.” “It’s a fairly natural thing and a common occurrence for them to bury these recollections, if only for self-preservation,” said state Sen. Declan J. O’ Scanlon Jr. (R-13), one of the sponsors of the Senate bill, in a phone interview with The Two River Times Feb. 25. “Their normal, natural self-preservation inclinations shouldn’t shield the predators from paying the price for their actions.” By Philip Sean Curran This list is limited to churches in the 13 Two Rivertowns of Monmouth County. Some priests served morethan one parish during their careers. This is a list of clergymen in the Diocese of Trentonwho have been credibly accused of the sexual abuse of aminor as of Feb. 22, 2019.last_img read more

Region 1 hosts mini STEAMS Fair

first_imgThe Education Department of Region One (Barima-Waini) hosted a mini Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAMS) Fair and Exhibition on Saturday on the lawns of the Education Department in Mabaruma to officially begin activities in observance of Education Month 2018, celebrated under the theme “Education for a Good Life – Through Innovation and STEAMS”.Regional Chairman Brentnol AshleyIn delivering remarks at the event, Assistant Chief Education Officer-Primary (ACEO-P) Owen Pollard reminded the gathering of students, teachers and parents that without an effective education system a country cannot progress.Pollard said it is towards this end that the Education Ministry (MoE) will leave no stone unturned to educate the nation’s children in keeping with modern methodologies and concepts. With a focus on the theme, Pollard said it is imperative that an education system in the 21st century produces children who are able to function in the wider world.He is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying that, “as a country we need scientists and other technically savvy citizens to guarantee Guyana taking its rightful place in the world”.Brentnol Ashley, Regional Chairman for Region One, said making education a priority irrespective of any prevailing circumstances is a mantra his region reverences highly. He said, “Children will have the opportunity to unravel the skills they have within,” Ashley quipped.Further, he noted that it is important to ensure that every child has an opportunity to maximise their potential and leaders should assist in ensuring such opportunities are provided.The Regional Chairman told the gathering that his region will be expending more monies for the continued development of education in Barima-Waini. “Education is everyone’s business, unless we take ownership of education and place emphasis on its importance much will not be achieved, for a society to be transformed education has to take its rightful place”.Meanwhile, District Education Officer (Region One), Marti DeSouza was in a celebratory mood because his region in keeping with the theme this year, established their first smart classroom. According to DeSouza, this technology will substitute for a teacher who might be absent since children from another school can be taught by another teacher from a separate school.The use of the smart classroom was demonstrated at the exhibition whereby students were given a Mathematics lesson on subtraction with regrouping.The schools participating were Mabaruma, Hosororo, Wauna, Aruka and Barbina Primary schools and North West Secondary.Following the opening of the Fair, the Welfare Department presented school supplies, inclusive of bags, footwear and exercise books to a number of students.last_img read more
