Clarett returns to Ohio State for classes

Former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett has enrolled in classes at the university for the second summer session, which began on Monday. “Maurice Clarett has been granted reentry into The Ohio State University, following a review by the College of Education and Human Ecology, where he was originally enrolled,” OSU director of media relations Jim Lynch said in a statement.Clarett was released from the Toledo Correctional Institution in April after serving on 3 ½ years of a 7 ½ year sentence for aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon.In negotiation with his early release, Clarett was ordered to spend four to six months at a dormitory step-down center on Alum Creek Drive. Inmates are permitted leave to work or attend classes.Clarett was quickly recognized on campus. “This is a surreal feeling to be back at Ohio State in such a supportive environment,” Clarett said in a statement. “I have looked forward to being back in school and I’m doing my best to fit in with other students. I don’t want to be a distraction or nuisance to the football team or to students on campus.”Clarett might be back in the classroom, but he won’t be making an appearance on the field. After the Buckeyes’ 2002 National Championship, Clarett signed with an agent, forfeiting any remaining eligibility. read more

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer stresses 4 to 6 A to

Coach Urban Meyer stands on the sidelines during a game against San Diego. OSU won, 42-7.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAside from the shoulder pads and helmets popping against each other, coaches yelling out orders or the shrill of whistles, there’s been one phrase that has echoed throughout the Woody Hayes Athletic Center during Ohio State spring practice.“4 to 6, A to B.”The phrase has seemingly become second nature to the Buckeyes, as coach Urban Meyer works to give his program’s culture a facelift throughout the spring football season.“We have a mantra, we have a culture that I want to make sure we don’t lose,” Meyer said after his team’s first spring practice March 4. “What I’m looking for is simplicity, and 4 to 6 and A to B. If you can’t give us that, then we gotta move on and get another player that will.”The mantra of playing hard for four to six seconds, and rushing hard during a play from one direct point to another, is so important to OSU’s football coach that he mentioned it four times March 4, in what was his first press conference since the Buckeyes’ 40-35 loss to Clemson in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3.It’s been such a big part of the culture change for OSU so far in 2014 that the words continue to trickle down across the roster and coaching staff.“It’s going to be about 4 to 6, A to B. That’s what we’re going to be about,” assistant head coach and defensive line coach Larry Johnson said March 27 when asked about his unit specifically. “We’re going to work as hard as we can in 4 to 6 seconds, and go from point A to point B as fast as we can.”The coaching staff preaches the phrase in nearly every interview session during spring ball, establishing the assertion time and again.“I know you guys are getting tired of hearing ‘power of the unit’ and ‘4 to 6 seconds,’ but here’s reality: If that’s what is truly important, and it becomes important to our players that 11 guys show up at the ball and it doesn’t matter really which number gets there first … then it’s really, really important,” cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs said to reporters after practice April 3.Meyer said he knew he and his staff had work to do to shore some things up on the team — particularly at defending the pass, as the team gave up an average of 268 yards per game through the air, good for 112th in the country — to even have a chance at success in 2014. And fixing the mistakes that cost them begins with that one simple phrase.“I don’t want a team that’s scared to make mistakes. I don’t want a team that’s thinking,” Meyer said March 4. “I want a team that goes 4 to 6 seconds, and when they put their foot on the ground, it’s A to B, it’s fast and it’s as hard as you go.”Aside from the loss to the Tigers in the Orange Bowl, OSU also fell to Michigan State Dec. 7 in the Big Ten Championship Game, 34-24, crushing the chances it had of competing for the national title.The back-to-back losses are the first for Meyer in his tenure as OSU coach, after ripping off 24 straight wins since arriving in Columbus in 2012. With nearly eight months for that feeling to sit and ruminate in his and his team’s minds before the Buckeyes have another chance to line up against an opponent, it’s clear he wants things to change.“Urban has set the tone very clearly, nothing else matters,” Coombs said. “4 to 6 seconds, point A to point B, all of us doing the same thing, going as hard as we can and the kids have bought into that.“And they’re not allowed to not buy into it, to be perfectly honest with you. It’s not an option. It is the way it’s going to be.”With the annual Spring Game at Ohio Stadium as the last scheduled, organized practice before fall camp, Meyer stressed the importance of adhering to the play-hard culture.“I want to make sure that culture’s out there,” Meyer said. “There’s never been a team, in 27 years of coaching, that team that didn’t play the hardest, didn’t win the game. Lack of execution and lack of technique — you can overcome that with incredible effort. You can’t overcome lack of effort with great technique. It doesn’t happen. At some point you’ll fail … These kids have heard that nonstop from the coaching staff.”The spring game is set for 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Ohio Stadium.The season opener against Navy is scheduled for Aug. 30 at noon in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium. read more

Dirty Sergio Ramos adds one more victim to his hitlist

first_imgDuring the first half against Viktoria Plzen, defender Sergio Ramos added one more victim to his hit-list of players that suffer his relentless elbow aggressions.As we have already pointed out before, Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is unhinged and needs to be disciplined from his violent behavior.UEFA and the referee committee needs to start taking notes with this player because he is truly one of the most violent ones in world football, he just keeps going after his markers with those elbows and he keeps repeating himself because no one has taken the necessary measures with his erratic behavior.We had already seen how much damage can Sergio Ramos make when he wants, he took the liberty to injure both Mohamed Salah and Loris Karius during the Champions League final from last season and nobody from UEFA said a single thing.This season in La Liga, Ramos has already hit other opponents and the officials from the Spanish competition also don’t seem to care because he is a Real Madrid player and he obviously gets a pass that players from other clubs don’t.The latest incident has taken place in the Czech Republic during Real Madrid’s 5-0 victory against Viktoria Plzen, Ramos got away with it again and he didn’t even get booked.⚠ ¡Durísimo codazo de #SergioRamos! ⚠y ni amarilla se llevó… pic.twitter.com/1oVfMO4qHB— MedioTiempo (@mediotiempo) November 7, 2018The worst part of this was that unlike the final against Liverpool, Real Madrid didn’t need the dirty football that Sergio Ramos plays when the club is not having their best day.Many might say that this wasn’t intentional, but when a certain action keeps repeating itself, it simply can’t be considered as an accident.Sergio Ramos knows very well what he is doing and where he places his forearm when he tries to protect the ball or get ahead in the position as he struggles with a rival player.It’s all about that nasty habit of always placing his arm in a very dangerous area without thinking about the consequence of his actions, this time there was a victim that unfortunately got a fractured nose and bled all over the grass as soon as he received the nasty hit from Sergio Ramos.Viktoria Plzen defender Milan Havel was the unfortunate soul who suffered Sergio Ramos’ wrath this time, and the Spanish defender acknowledged the incident after the match but he confirmed that he would never go after any player’s livelihood.¡OJO! “¿El CODAZO? Es una ACCIÓN FORTUITA. Nunca voy a HACER DAÑO a un compañero. Le he puesto un MENSAJE a Havel” @SergioRamos en DIRECTO en #ChiringuitoRamos! pic.twitter.com/VRE9StmreQJose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.— El Chiringuito TV (@elchiringuitotv) November 7, 2018“I obviously never go after any of my peers with the intention to hurt them,” said Ramos after the match via Diario AS.“I have spoken with the player actually, I went to the locker room looking for him but he wasn’t there because he was undergoing tests to determine the damage on his nose but I did send messages asking for his well being.”“It’s clear that I did hit him but I never intended to hurt him, the problem is that the nose is very problematic and even I have suffered when it bleeds so much.”“When you have been in a club for so long and you are the Real Madrid and the National Team captain you tend to be under the spotlight. I believe that I’ve managed critics quite well and I will never change my ways.”“I hope I can be in this club for a long time despite a headache that we may cause a lot of people. With the Salah incident, it’s true that sometimes you can be afraid of the consequences of what you do, I really didn’t think about hitting anyone before that problem but it’s very different now.”“The truth is that I won’t change, mainly because I have never played with the intention of hurting any of my peers.”“I have fallen injured many times, I also have broken my nose before, I still remember the nasty tackle I received during the Spain-England match in Real Betis’ stadium and nobody said anything,” he concluded.¿Cuántas agresiones más le van a permitir a Sergio Ramos? ¡¡Esto es una vergüenza!! pic.twitter.com/lzmTU5Nr17— Zona_Blaugrana (@Zona_Blaugrana) November 7, 2018What do you think about Sergio Ramos’ latest violent moment with a rival this Wednesday?

Lewandowski reveals he is settled in Munich

first_imgBayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says he’s settled at the club after failing to secure a move away from the German champions this summer.Lewandowski couldn’t keep his name out of the press this past summer, as he reportedly pushed for a transfer out of Bayern Munich. The Bavarians stood their ground, however, and didn’t entertain offers for their prolific striker. The club chiefs, Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge were eager to show that no player is bigger than the club.The Poland international hasn’t had the best start to the new season, though he remains the leading scorer for Bayern this season.It seems like Bayern’s decision to reject his request to leave the club against his wishes might backfire.The former Borussia Dortmund striker has assured the fans that he is very happy with life at the Allianz Arena, though. The Poland captain told Sport Bild that the team’s success is his priority, and he’s less concerned about personal accolades.rb leipzig, bayern munichReport: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…“I definitely feel very happy and well in Munich.”“I do my best for the team to win. But it’s still about the team because everyone works hard for success here. It’s not just me, not just Robert Lewandowski.”Lewandowski hired super-agent Pini Zahavi to facilitate a move away from Bayern earlier this year. Zahavi publicly announced that his client wanted to leave the club at the end of last season. Niko Kovac also confirmed that the former Bundesliga top scorer put in a transfer request, but the manager reaffirmed that Bayern had no intention to sell him.  Lewandowski reportedly wanted to seal a dream move to Real Madrid in the summer.last_img read more
