Veteran duo in clash of titans

first_img Schmidt’s men might be favourites in theory, but the former Leinster coach warned against ruling out Les Bleus. Former New Zealand schoolteacher Schmidt is also adamant France’s patchy 19-17 victory in Scotland last weekend will not hinder their performance on home soil. The ex-Clermont backs coach admitted Ireland must beware the typical Gallic l’esprit de clocher – the ‘clock tower spirit’ – that underpins the French dominance at home. “It’s a bit trite, this is our patch this is what we defend: they take immense pride in that,” said Schmidt. “Often when a player is fatigued they will mentally just switch off a little bit. “But it’s a lot less likely to happen when you’re on your home patch. “They dig a little bit deeper to make sure you do what’s required of you. “There’s more of an edge, because you just can’t afford to lose at home. “A lot of people have overlooked the fact they have an outside chance to win it.” Head coach Schmidt believes Ireland’s veteran centre pairing will face a culture clash with France’s wrecking ball crew, led by Toulon beefcake Mathieu Bastareaud. Iconic centre O’Driscoll will make his 141st and final Test appearance at the Stade de France on Saturday as Ireland chase their first Six Nations title since the 2009 Grand Slam. Press Association O’Driscoll and D’Arcy will extend their world-record international centre partnership to 56 caps, with Schmidt already labelling the wily duo the “last bastion” of creative midfield play. The Ireland boss has challenged his seasoned campaigners to deny 25-year-old Bastareaud and friends lethal offloads out of the tackle this weekend. “I’m not sure that Bastareaud ever gets taken in the first tackle, he breaks those tackles,” Schmidt said. “Gael Fickou, Bastareaud, Remi Tales, they are all massive offload threats. “If you don’t wrap them up, you can be chasing the next guy who has run a good line off the offload and the game turns around very quickly. “France just have pace and the ability to accelerate into space very quickly, they are all looking to do it at any stage, and they anticipate any break that comes loose. “They will seize any opportunity, when they chance their arm they have some of those athletes with the skills to make something happen.” Ireland, France and England can all still claim the Six Nations title heading into the final weekend. Brian O’Driscoll and Gordon D’Arcy must dominate the generation game to guide Ireland to RBS 6 Nations glory in Paris, according to Joe Schmidt.last_img read more

PCP: What to do at QB?

first_imgMason:After the football team’s loss to Ohio State Saturday night, much blame was put on the shoulders of senior quarterback Allan Evridge. In the team’s two losses on the season, Evridge has not impressed. He’s missed a number of passes to open receivers and seems to lack that overall poise a quarterback must have.Head coach Bret Bielema said Monday that Evridge will be the team’s starter against Penn State this weekend but also alluded that junior quarterback Dustin Sherer will be breathing down Evridge’s neck.For Evridge, this Saturday should be his last chance to prove himself.While I am of the belief that Sherer should have probably started the season under center, it would be silly to throw him into the fire against the No. 6 Nittany Lions — a nationally televised game against a top-ranked opponent isn’t the ideal time to throw in a new starter.Teams want the players on the field that give them the best chance to win. And as hard as it may be to believe, Evridge gives UW a slightly better chance Saturday than Sherer does this weekend. But that’s solely based on experience.Should Evridge struggle again, however, it will be time to change things up. If the Badgers lose, it’s clear they can’t win with Evridge at the helm. Why not get a different captain to steer this ship around?Get Sherer the experience now so he’ll be ready for next season. UW can’t afford to have what happened to Evridge happen to him too.Zetlin:Close, Mason, you’re very close.At this point, I think we’ve seen enough of Evridge. He’s had his chance, underperformed, and now it’s time to move on, as all hopes of a Rose Bowl berth are gone.Throwing a replacement in against No. 6 Penn State may seem cruel, but how else is he supposed to gain the experience needed down the road?It was obvious that Evridge lacked poise because he lacked experience. When the Badgers lost to Illinois and Penn State last season, Evridge should have replaced Donovan so he’d be that much better this season. Interestingly enough, Wisconsin went on to play both Michigan and Ohio State after that, two teams Evridge lost to this season.You’re right, Evridge’s end is near, but you’re wrong about who his replacement should be. Should Dustin Sherer take over, that would mean next season would be the fourth year in a row the Badgers would start a senior quarterback.That said, throw the freshman from Tennessee, Curt Phillips, under the gun Saturday and build for the future. He’s more mobile than the rest, which would ultimately give UW the change of pace it needs on offense.Is he ready to win now? No, but when the Capital One Bowl is a long shot, it’s time to think about the future. You can’t have a successful program with continuous one-and-done quarterbacks. At some point, you need to accept the growing pains of a youngster and let an offense grow around him. Imagine an offense with John Clay and a veteran quarterback in two years.It’s time for Bret Bielema to waive the white flag. Vote now: Phillips for quarterback.last_img read more

What we learned from Syracuse’s 70-55 win over Miami

first_imgSyracuse can actually defend against an ACC opponentThe notion that SU could stop a legit opponent was in doubt after the Orange allowed 96 points to Boston College on Sunday. The Eagles were projected as the worst team in the conference and ranks 226th in the country in adjusted offensive efficiency, per Kenpom.com. Entering SU’s matchup with Miami on Wednesday, one thing was clear: Syracuse’s 2-3 zone had to tighten up if it wanted to beat even better conference opponents.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Our defense was just better tonight,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “We gave up some open 3s but we did a better job. It wasn’t as good as we need to do but we did a better job and we were more efficient on offense.”The Orange was quicker on the defensive end against the Hurricanes. Despite giving up 11 3-pointers, Miami was still held to a 38.9 overall field-goal percentage and shot just 10-of-28 on 2-pointers. Only one Hurricanes player scored in double figures, Dejan Vasiljevic, who had 18 points on six 3s. UM’s Ja’Quan Newton (15.8 points per game), Davon Reed (14.6 points per game) and Bruce Brown (11 points per game) were held to eight, six and nine points, respectively.“Limited guys getting into the paint, limited layups … I think that was the key tonight.”Tyler Roberson is back as a major contributorAfter playing a combined 26 minutes against Connecticut, St. John’s and Georgetown, Tyler Roberson’s spot in SU’s rotation was in doubt. But an effective 22 minutes at BC and a season-high 35 minutes against Miami on Wednesday showed he’s back as a key contributor.After nonconference play wrapped up, Boeheim was asked if Roberson would be a part of the rotation going forward. He said if he could score effectively and provide a boost on the boards, he’ll play. He’s done that of late and racked up nine points on 4-of-5 shooting and six rebounds against the Hurricanes.Five players played 35 minutes or more while no one else played more than five. Boeheim said he’ll keep doing it if Syracuse keeps winning.“Tyler Roberson’s our best defensive forward,” Boeheim said. “So it was just a defensive maneuver.”Andrew White didn’t want to be a party pooper but was one anywayAs Syracuse walked off the court excited about its first ACC win, Andrew White had a message for his teammates. He needed them to stay focused and recognize that it’s just one win.And if the Orange wants to climb back into NCAA Tournament contention, it’ll need a lot more than just one.“I just walked off the court and everybody was excited. I didn’t want to poop the party, I was just saying, ‘one down,’” White said. “You hope get two in a row, three in a row. Keep it rolling. I’m pretty mindful and thoughtful of what’s going on, I keep the big picture in perspective and it felt really good to win that game and you would think let’s keep doing it, let’s not be satisfied with this.” Comments Published on January 4, 2017 at 11:50 pm Contact Paul: pmschwed@syr.edu | @pschweds Syracuse (9-6, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) picked up its biggest win of the year so far, a 70-55 victory over Miami (11-3, 1-1) on Wednesday night in the Carrier Dome. The Orange picked up the defensive intensity, settled on just five main contributors and used an 18-5 second-half run to secure its first ACC win.Here’s what we learned from the game.MORE COVERAGETyler Roberson stifles Miami inside, scores 9 points in season-high 35 minutesSyracuse’s zone works like it should in 70-55 victory over MiamiJohn Gillon puts stranglehold on point guard spot in Syracuse’s best win of season, 70-55 over MiamiSyracuse fans react to SU’s big 70-55 win over Miamicenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

The Washington football team will call itself the ‘Washington Football Team’ until new name arrives

first_imgNike, for example, removed all Washington NFL apparel from its online store after receiving a letter from investors threatening to end the relationship unless the team changed its name. According to Adweek, PepsiCo and FedEx also received letters from the same investment firms and shareholders worth a collective $620 billion before putting pressure on the team.The team has not announced a time frame for its decision on a new name, but reports indicate team is actively working toward a replacement. Favorites like “Washington Red Wolves” and “Washington Redtails” have emerged even though the team has not given any indication about its direction with the new name.Earlier this month, ESPN reported that “Washington is planning to have no Native American imagery” on its logos and uniforms under the new name. Washington knows rebranding an NFL team, a process that typically would take at least a year, is impossible to pull off in the span of a few months. So the team formerly known as the Redskins has a short-term plan while it works to adopt a new nickname.According to ESPN, the Washington football team will call itself just that — the “Washington Football Team.” Per the report, this is “not a final renaming and rebranding for team; this is the name it wants to use until pending adoption of a new name in the future.” MORE: Options for Washington’s permanent name changeESPN also reported Thursday that the team will not change its burgundy and gold color scheme or make major changes to its uniforms while playing under the temporary name. The only previously visible Redskins logo on the helmets will be replaced by players’ numbers, and the “Redskins” text on the chest of the jerseys will now read “Washington.”Washington will not have any change to its color scheme. It will still use burgundy and gold. The Redskins logo on the helmet will be replaced by the player’s number in gold. The Washington Football Team will debut its home uniforms in week 1 against the Eagles. pic.twitter.com/8DpC6b0Tyj— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 23, 2020🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/EQbgVwiLOX— Ryan Kerrigan (@RyanKerrigan91) July 23, 2020🔥🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/B5XSq31NJ8— Daron Payne (@94yne) July 23, 2020Washington “hopes to be entirely rid of (the former name) on physical and digital spaces in the next 50 days, by the Sept. 13 regular-season opener against the Eagles,” per the report. Official “Washington Football Team” merchandise will be available for purchase soon.Washington said fans will be able to purchase “Washington Football Team” merchandise from Fanatics and NFL Shop in the coming days. pic.twitter.com/g6d7cevmn4— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 23, 2020After team owner Dan Snyder for years had refused to change the team’s nickname, Washington on July 13 announced it would remove the racial slur after public pressure from sponsors and business partners.last_img read more
