Guilbeau: LSU should face Ole Miss on Halloween

first_imgBATON ROUGE – LSU has petitioned the NCAA and the Southeastern Conference to wear white at home. … Got it.LSU has asked the SEC to let it play as many night games at home as possible. … Got it.LSU has begged, pleaded and ordered the SEC to change its West-East scheduling philosophy so it will not have to play Florida every season, but no one outside Louisiana has ever understood its “equitable scheduling” argument, including Florida. … Not happening.Oh well, two out of three is not bad. So there may be room for another small request.SEC OFFICE: “OK, LSU, what do you want now? Blackened redfish at all away games?”LSU: “No, what we want is to not have to play on the Friday after Thanksgiving any more. You’re making us play at Texas A&M on Thanksgiving this year, but there is no way we are ever playing at home on Thanksgiving. And we don’t ever want a Thursday night home game.”SEC OFFICE: “All right, all right, we’ll see what we can do.”LSU: “And there’s one more little bitty thing.”SEC OFFICE: “Geez, what now?”LSU: “Well, we have this tradition …”SEC OFFICE: “Another tradition? We gave you the white jerseys at home. You got all night games this season. How many traditions can one school have?”LSU: “Well, there’s this thing about Halloween. It means a lot to us.”SEC OFFICE: “You won one big game on Billy Cannon’s punt return 50 years ago, and you won’t let it go.”LSU: “Yeah I know, but you’ve got to admit it was pretty cool.”SEC OFFICE: “We’re not replaying that game on the network. There’s the punt return and the goal-line stand. That’s it.”LSU: “No, that’s not it. We’re wondering if you can move Saturday’s Ole Miss game to Halloween Night.”SEC OFFICE: “What?”LSU: “We have an open date on Nov. 1 so we could play on Halloween Night. It’s a Friday.”SEC OFFICE: “Uh, small problem. Ole Miss plays Auburn on Nov. 1.”LSU: “To hell with Ole Miss. You’ve been helping us beat the Rebs ever since 1959 when Billy stepped out of bounds, not to mention the frozen clock in 1972. You’ve helped us beat them as much as you help Alabama beat us.”SEC OFFICE: “Yeah, yeah, yeah.”LSU: “We need this game on Halloween. It’s our only chance. Ole Miss has its best team since it went undefeated in 1962 defense since Johnny Vaught was coaching. This team is better than any of Archie’s or Eli’s teams. We’re going to have to pull out all the stops just to keep up with them. Billy Cannon will be there. Doug Moreau will be there. Remember, he caught a tipped, two-point conversion pass in the final minutes to beat Ole Miss, 11-10, in 1964 — on Halloween night. We’ve contacted the 13th Gate, too, to send some ghosts over. This could be is the 50th anniversary of that game.”SEC: “We just made Moreau an SEC legend.”LSU: “And we appreciate that. He deserves it.”SEC: “We can’t move the game.”LSU: “Look, this is what you do. Give Ole Miss Nov. 1 off and move its game with Auburn on that day to Nov. 8. Ole Miss just has Presbyterian on Nov. 8, and Auburn only has Texas A&M. Both of those games can be eliminated. You saw what happened when Alabama beat A&M, 59-0. Does the SEC Network really want to carry Auburn beating A&M 65-0? You just eliminated Florida and Idaho back at the beginning of the season. You can do it again.”SEC: “Good idea. That’s doable. What else you got?”LSU: “Now, about the clock operator. We’re going to need some help.”Connect with Glenn on Twitter @LSUBeatTweetlast_img read more

“Keep in the group so that Mahnovsky’s disqualification becomes shorter” –…

first_imgViorels Frunze, “Ventspils” head coach: “The Eurocup games are special for everyone, especially for those who made their debut. I would like to congratulate the team on winning and entering the next round, which was also the most important thing. Competitors showed a recognizable game, there were a lot of emotions, a lot of fighting, but it is a pity that we did not collect these emotions in the end part of the match. Probably the players wanted to show themselves in the best way possible, which in the end was rather disturbing. But I’m glad we met in the next round, which was also the most important thing. “After the draw, you said that it was good to know what Dobrovoolski would ask of the team, what football it would play. Or did you get what you expected?“Yes, they played exactly as we had expected. We knew that playing aggressively, using flanks in positional attacks and looking for free zones. I have also played with the team captain Mikhalov, so I know that he meets the standards that we showed to the guys before the game very well. We could see it all today. It is clear that the teams playing in the Euroccups deserve it and there is no reason to expect an easy game. We didn’t expect that either. ”During the refund, Guga earns a red card – what was it?“What it really was?” Even hard to say. He must probably ask what he ran there and what he wanted… ”With 2: 1 in the lead, he could play more calmly, control the ball, but the teams ran forward, as if they still didn’t know what to do.“It simply came to our notice then. The attacker, who was fresher because he had just come on the field, was told to be more active in the game and not allowed them to launch attacks. Guga is constantly trying to take the ball from his rivals and this time it ended up with a red card. Don’t you think we told him to go to the square and get a card? On the contrary, we talked about the need to have more control over our actions, which perhaps not everyone understands. Guga, even in training, always tries to take away the ball, of course, doing it cleanly, but did not gather here. Of course, playing so aggressively was unnecessary. It should also be taken into account that players feel pressure because they understand what result they all expect and that this result must be protected. This can also be one of the reasons why you come to play it. We really didn’t run forward. I don’t think Guga really wanted to do anything like that, because for every player, such statistics and a match missed in the Eurocausals ruin his CV and career. Mahnovsky has to miss ten games, which is a disqualification almost until the end of his career. We will have to be in a group to make those games go faster. ”Has the team been affected in any way by the fact that the president of the club is included in the Latvian blacklist?“Any loss to the club is painful, whether it is a player or someone else. It was disappointing that Mom could not play because he had an injury, now Guga also received a red card, and we also have a big problem that the president cannot come and be with the team. He always cares about extra emotions, but we understand that there are situations we cannot control. We try to get three points in each match, to improve the situation in the tournament table. Now only two days until the next match, where you have to meet “Mettu” on the field, where you will probably have to try to make some rotation, because it is not easy for the players. Today we even asked not to water before the match, because it is already very soft and tiring. It’s hard to play on such a field and the players are tired, so now you have to think about what to do in the next game. Let’s rest tomorrow, then prepare for the match. There are no other options, because we need to think about how to get to three points. This will be followed by a two-week break, when the boys will also be able to rest for two or three days, completely forgetting about football. In two and a half months, we have actually played two rounds. It’s hard, but at the same time beautiful, that you don’t have to train, you can just play (Smile).Two convincing victories in the championship, now the third victory in a row. Can it be said that the team has found understanding in their game?“It is very important for the team, for its conviction, that such a series of victories succeeds, but they must have at least four or five games. The team is psychologically affected, especially when the game follows the game. It depends on each player individually. Coaches can’t predict everything.Abdula Gaņajevs two games were not even in the application, but now came into the start, which was a surprise. Why such a choice?“We need three local players in the Premier League games, but we could also try other variants here, and we also wanted to rest Ulimbashev. Opportunities will definitely be given to other young footballers who are fighting for a place in the national team. It is a pity that there were only three shifts today, because we are used to five. ”Had to play against his former coach, against the Moldovan club. Were they special emotions?“What mattered was what the game took place on Moldova’s Independence Day, where I also congratulated my country! I would very much like it to grow to the level of the European country where I am now. I know we have such opportunities. Yes, I have played with Igor Dobrovolska both in the club and in the national team and I have pleasant emotions playing with a team from the country where you were born. It was a pleasure to see these guys, the coaches, but it’s unfortunate that all of these coronavirus restrictions don’t even allow us to talk normally. I haven’t been home since February, so it was very nice to see familiar faces. I want to wish the team and the coach good luck in the championship and re-enter the European Cups. ”Igors Dobrovoļskis, head coach of Dinamo-Auto: “There is not much to comment on. A fighting and difficult game with a lot of violations, including injuries and rejection. I think “Ventspils” was more lucky today. ”Good luck because you didn’t use your moments or in what way?“Both teams had moments, but they also have to score a goal. The first gate of Ventspils was such that I don’t even know what to say. If he really tried to flip it, then it’s a piglet. In general, it was the success of “Ventspils” today. ”In the second half, the team seemed to be running out of strength. What did it look like to you?“Our last game was on August 5, because the championship was stopped so that there would be no problems with the virus. The teams went to quarantine, but yes people don’t play for three weeks, getting back on the field is hard. As if we had already passed. As if. We tried, but now what happened came. ”Did you think you are playing against your student-led team today?“I don’t look at it that way – student, teacher. I have always had a good relationship with all football players. He could not surprise any, just as we could not surprise anything. We know each other well, we know what the training process is like, and they both had the opportunity to watch a game video. ”Or after this game you can highlight someone in “Ventspils”“I would say it’s a fairly equal team, and no one stands out so much to emphasize the performance of exactly one player.”One of your old acquaintances was mentioned, but so is the president of Ventspils. Have you even dedicated a whole chapter to him in your book?“We have always had a great desire to win, so we also worked together, won and became champions. We are, in fact, identical in nature. More specifically, we both don’t like to lose. ”last_img read more

2019 champion “Raptors” signs a new contract with coach Ners –…

first_img“Our confidence in Nick’s ability continues to grow. Part of it comes from what they experienced together, “said Masai Ujiri, president of the Toronto Raptors. “The last two seasons have been unique in the history of the club. We first won the title, then we lived in a global pandemic, fighting racism and social equality at the same time. Nick has proven that he can train on the field and lead in life. We will achieve great things in the future. ”Ners was recognized as the best coach of the NBA this season, but the Raptors failed to defend the title they won a year ago – the team was sown with the second number in the Eastern Conference, but in the semifinals of the conference, the Boston Celtics gave up 3-4. In the regular season, the Raptors’ balance was 53-19, despite the departure of Kavai Lenard.In two seasons at the helm of “Raptors” Nerse’s balance is 111-43. Prior to that, he spent five years as an assistant. “Toronto has been my home for the last seven years, and it will be my home for many years to come. I have seen this club grow and reach the top. I look forward to the next challenges and the path to another title, ”said Ners himself.Resources used:https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id…last_img read more

Roy ton helps England seal ODI series win over Pakistan

first_imgNOTTINGHAM, England,  (Reuters) – England’s Jason Roy hit a superb century and Ben Stokes carried them home as they beat Pakistan by three wickets at Trent Bridge yesterday, surviving a middle-order wobble to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series. Babar Azam’s century helped Pakistan reach a respectable 340-7 in their 50 overs, yet once again a decent total proved inadequate for the tourists as England wrapped up victory after a tense finale with three balls to spare.Having hunted down a 359-run target with ease in Bristol in the third ODI, England steadily chipped away at Pakistan’s total with Roy leading the charge, bringing up his eighth ODI century in 75 balls.Babar Azam-At that point, the hosts looked set for another routine win on a ground where they had twice scored more than 400 in the last three years. Yet when Roy departed for 114 with England on 201-2 their momentum ground to a halt as they lost three further wickets for another 15 runs with Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali departing for ducks.All-rounder Stokes rode to the rescue, however, smacking 71 not out off 64 balls, assisted by 31 from Tom Curran, who had earlier claimed 4-75 with the ball.“Tonight will do the dressing room a lot of confidence, knowing that when we lose a few quick wickets we are still able to come through,” said Stokes. It was a changed lineup for England who were without captain Eoin Morgan after he was banned for a slow over rate in the last ODI.Jonny Bairstow, who smashed 128 in Bristol, was also rested at the top of the order with James Vince coming in.Yet it was a familiar tale of woe for Pakistan who had Babar Azam’s steady 115 off 112 balls to thank for leading them to a defendable total that was picked off by an England side who have not lost a run chase on home soil in this format since 2015 (18 wins, one draw). England, who will head into the World Cup as favourites on home soil later this month, lead 3-0 heading into the fifth and final ODI in Leeds tomorrow.last_img read more
