Maryland’s first drive of the game lasted five plays and ended in a 25-yard touchdown pass from C.J. Brown to Marcus Leak. Then Brown threw a bubble screen to Brandon Ross on the second play of the next drive and Ross ran 90 yards into the end zone. Two drives, two big plays, two scores. Naturally, Syracuse made a defensive shift. “That 3-3-5 allows the blitz to do a lot more,” senior linebacker Cameron Lynch said.On the Terrapins’ third possession, SU switched to a 3-3-5 — its “Okie” package — to put more speed on the field and pressure Brown in the backfield. It only used the Okie on two possessions, Maryland’s third and fourth, in an eventual 34-20 loss on Saturday afternoon, one resulting in a three-and-out and the other in a UMD field goal. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSave a late field goal, Syracuse nearly blanked the Terrapins in the second half and didn’t need the Okie package to do so. But the two possessions showed benefits and pitfalls of the alternative set. “They’re a vertical team,” safety Darius Kelly said of the Terrapins. “We want to have more (defensive backs) on the field to stop the pass. That was one of the emphases with Okie.”The Okie package puts three defensive linemen on the line of scrimmage, three linebackers in the box and five defensive backs on the field. The Syracuse defense began Maryland’s third possession in a base set. After Stefon Diggs beat Durell Eskridge downfield and Brown just barely overthrew him, the Orange subbed safety Darius Kelly into the game for nose tackle Eric Crume to add speed in the secondary. Kelly became the third safety with Ritchy Desir and Durell Eskridge. Ron Thompson, Micah Robinson and Robert Welsh were on the line, Lynch, Marqez Hodge and Josh Kirkland were the linebackers and Brandon Reddish and Julian Whigham were at cornerback. In the next two plays, Ross rushed for 2 yards and then Lynch sacked Brown for a 5-yard loss. It was one of three times that the Terrapins went three-and-out in the game.On Maryland’s next possession, the Terrapins counteracted the Okie by allowing a blitz from the left side and throwing behind it. Syracuse overloaded that side of the ball and it appeared that linebackers Lynch and Luke Arciniega had a free run at Brown while Maryland guard Andrew Zeller moved into the second level. But Brown got rid of the ball just in time and hit Deon Long for a screen pass. Zeller blocked Desir, allowing Long to collect 13 yards. This wrinkle from the Terrapins exposed a weakness in the fast and pressuring package. But the two possessions showed that the Orange has an option if it can’t slow an offense down, even if it’s only usable in certain situations. Syracuse has sporadically used the Okie in third-and-long, but used it as a primary package to hedge the Terrapins’ athleticism. “You’ve got to win first and second down to get in those positions,” defensive line coach Tim Daoust said. “We start to win first and second downs, we can get in those positions. If we don’t do that, then that personnel can’t get on the field.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
According to Alex Putterman of the Hartford (Conn.) Courant, UConn has an agreement to pay a $10 million withdrawal fee from the AAC and $3.5 million entrance fee to the Big East, of which it was a member from 1979-2013. The school is officially expected to begin competition in Big East-sponsored sports on July 1, 2020.It’s a move that makes sense for the UConn men’s and women’s basketball programs, considering their deep-rooted basketball rivalries with many of the Big East’s current teams.“While we all appreciate the AAC, the board has made a decision that is best for the athletic (department),” said interim board chairman Thomas Ritter said (via the Hartford Courant). “At this time I support accepting the Big East’s invitation as the better overall fit that in my opinion is best for our student-athletes.”That said, it does leave questions for its football team, considering the Big East does not sponsor football. Ritter acknowledged those questions after the vote. UConn has officially returned to the Big East after the school’s board of trustees approved a move from the American Athletic Conference on Wednesday. The vote came after Big East presidents voted to extend the university an invitation on Monday.MORE: Weighing UConn’s football options “Make no mistake, we will still be committed to our football program,” Ritter said (via The Hartford Courant). “We will have options for football and decide on a pathway for a successful and exciting football program.”Huskies football coach Randy Edsall, who up until Wednesday declined comment on the situation regarding his team, finally issued a statement once the move was made official.University officials declined comment until a Big East-sponsored news conference on Thursday at Madison Square Garden.

Josue Marquez, CC0What is Cultural Competence?Cultural competence can be described as one’s best tool in working with culturally diverse groups (Alizadeh and Chavan, 2015). However, the exact definition of this construct and the components which make it up is not singularly defined. What is more well-known is the problematic nature of the increasing demand for healthcare to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse culture (Alizadeh and Chavan, 2015). Kirmayer (2012) indicates that cultural diversity is especially challenging to mental health service, as one’s culture influences individuals’ experiences and, ultimately, outcomes associated with treatment. In other words, treatment experiences are often affected by cultural domains, such as religion, language, and various other aspects of one’s identity. Thus, cultural competence, despite various operationalization within the literature, seeks to improve accessibility and effectiveness of mental health services to culturally diverse populations.Recognizing the GapsOne of the most important aspects of cultural competence is awareness of cultural aspects that can create gaps between provider and client. Often times, individuals may not acknowledge factors, such as race, gender, or age, that immediately create a divide within the counseling relationship. It is obviously important to recognize these potential gaps in order to achieve any kind of competence in working with diverse cultures. Dr. Tammi Dice, Assistant Chair in the Counseling and Human Services Department at Old Dominion University and Program Director for Human Services insightfully indicates the importance of striving “to be culturally humble, not culturally competent” (Dice and Dice, 2017). Dr. Dice and her husband, Tony Dice, first year Ph.D. student at Old Dominion University, focus on developing cultural alertness in promoting access to effective mental health treatment for marginalized populations.Gaps Related to Military CultureOne such gap can be caused by differences between military service members and civilians. According to Atuel and Castro (2018) the military, described as a “warrior culture”, can be represented as a three-factor structure: a formal organization, a cultural group, and a social group. This means that individuals must be aware of several factors that influence service member culture, such as importance of chain of command, military cultural norms, and military identity. Thus, it can be difficult for civilian providers to work with service members if they lack knowledge of military culture (Atuel and Castro, 2018).How Can Providers Foster Military Cultural Competence?Dice and Dice (2017) stress the importance of becoming aware of the challenges one may face when working with culturally diverse others, such as service members. Furthermore, they point out the difficulties of working with clients who may have multiple marginalized identities. Thus, they offer insights into gaining awareness of culturally diverse populations and awareness of oneself in order to guide interactions. Reger, Etherage, Reger, and Gahm (2008) also offer several strategies for developing military cultural competence. These include exposing oneself to military culture, training in military regulations, and partnering with providers who are more experienced with military culture.Further ResourcesJoin the MFLN Family Development team on May 24th at 11:00 am Eastern for a free, 90-minute webinar examining the relationship between self-awareness, knowledge of others, and culturally alert interventions.

The birthday of AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, who turned 41 on Sunday, is being celebrated all over Uttar Pradesh by party workers as Kisan Adhikar Diwas (Farmers’ Rights Day). With Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh due early next year the opportunity is being utilised by the state unit to reach out to the farmers. The agitation at Bhatta Parsaul in Greater Noida on the land acquisition issue by Gandhi recently had generated a lot of heat politically. Enquiries at his residence at 12, Tuglak Lane residence revealed that the young leader is not at home and no celebration has been planned. Ahead of the birthday, party General Secretary Digvijay Singh had said Rahul has got “all the qualities and capabilities” that are required to become a “good” Prime Minister. Congress projects Gandhi as potential Prime Minister and future leader. Meanwhile, Kisan chaupals (farmer gatherings) were on Sunday organised in all the nyay panchyats in Gandhi’s Amethi constituency. The party office bearers organised chaupals in all 712 nyay panchyats in Amethi to hear problems faced by farmers. Party leader Rajesh Srivastav said this year neither cakes were cut nor sweets were distributed on Gandhi’s birthday but the party workers tried to mingle with farmers. “We will fight for the cause of farmers and get their problems redressed,” he said.- With PTI inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.
