Miles keeps starting QB a mystery

first_imgBATON ROUGE – LSU coach Les Miles was asked point blank Wednesday night, “Do you think Brandon Harris will play in the next game?”Miles started to say something, but he did not finish the thought and started another one. “I’m not ready to say,” he said after the Tigers’ practice in preparation for their next game on Thanksgiving night at Texas A&M.And so it – the LSU quarterback saga – goes. Starting quarterback Anthony Jennings directed an offense in a 17-0 loss Saturday night at Arkansas that produced the fewest total yards – 123 – in a Tigers’ regular season game since 1975 for LSU’s first regular season shutout since 2002.LSU (7-4, 3-4 SEC) and Texas A&M (7-4, 3-4 SEC) close the regular season at 6:30 on ESPN a week from Thursday.“He takes care of the ball. He makes the other 10 players better,” Miles said of Jennings. LSU had its worst rushing game – 36 yards on 32 carries – since the 2009 season at Arkansas.Miles has said leading up to LSU’s last two games – both losses for Miles’ first two-game losing streak in a season since 2008 – that Harris would see significant playing time. But he did not. Harris, a true freshman from Parkway High in Bossier City, has not seen significant snaps since starting the 41-7 loss at Auburn on Oct. 4 when he went 3-of-14 for 58 yards.“The position takes some time,” Miles said. “It’s stem motion, checks. It’s an encompassing position. Certainly, those are the things that are going to get him to the field.”Asked about the parts of Harris’ game that he likes, Miles said, “He has a natural arm. He can run, and he’s competitive. We like him a lot. But is he?”Miles did not finish the thought and started another one. “Hopefully, by the time we get to the game, he’ll have taken some more steps and allows us to get him into the game,” he said. “We’re going to see if we can bring the quality of quarterback play up with competition.”Jennings, a sophomore, completed 12 of 22 passes at Arkansas for 87 yards – an average of 3.9 yards an attempt after averaging 2.9 yards an attempt the week before in the loss to Alabama. He is 90th in the nation and 13th in the SEC in passing efficiency at 116.3 on 92 completions in 192 attempts for 1,353 yards and nine touchdowns with six interceptions. Harris has a 175.0 efficiency mark on 25-of-45 passing for 452 yards and six touchdowns with two interceptions.ALEXANDER DUE BACK: Starting left guard Vadal Alexander, who missed the Arkansas game with an injured hand suffered against Alabama, is expected to play in the regular season finale at Texas A&M, Miles said Wednesday.The news is not as good for starting center Elliot Porter, who remains questionable for both the Texas A&M game and a bowl game after suffering an ankle injury at Arkansas. “Not so certain about this game,” Miles said of Porter. “Not so certain about the bowl game.”Tailback Kenny Hilliard (shoulder) is not expected to play at Texas A&M. Starting cornerback Rashard Robinson is also not expected to play against the Aggies as he remains on indefinite suspension. He missed the Alabama and Arkansas games on suspension.MILES PRAISES HOGS PLAN, CRITICIZES HIS: On Saturday night after the loss at Arkansas, Miles called the Hogs’ passing game “imaginative.” On Wednesday, Miles continued the praise. “They had a nice game plan. They really did,” he said.Miles then criticized his and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron’s game plan. “We needed to not be as predictable,” he said. “We’re looking for more balance.”MILES 7th HIGHEST PAID: LSU coach Les Miles is the seventh highest paid college football coach in the country at $4.3 million in 2014, according to the latest salary database released by the USA Today.The top six are Alabama’s Nick Saban at $7.1 million, Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio at $5.6 million, Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops at $5.05 million, Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin at $5 million, Texas’ Charlie Strong at $5 million and Ohio State’s Urban Meyer at $4.5 million.The lowest paid coach of the 121 recorded by USA Today was Appalachian State’s Scott Satterfield at $225,000 a year. UL Monroe coach Todd Berry was 120th at $358,250. Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz was 96th at $510,000, and UL coach Mark Hudspeth was 71st at $1.03 million.QUOTE OF THE DAY:“I didn’t expect that in any way.”– LSU coach Les Miles when asked if he was shocked by his then 20th-ranked team’s 17-0 loss at then 4-5 and 0-5 Arkansas last week.LSU at Texas A&MGame: 6:30 p.m., Nov. 27, Kyle Field.Records: LSU 7-4, 3-4; A&M 7-4, 3-4.TV: ESPN.Radio: 103.7 FM.last_img read more

A Flacco surfaces on practice field for Ravens

first_imgOWINGS MILLS, Md. — Joe Flacco won’t be ready until training camp and wouldn’t have been anywhere near the practice field for Ravens rookie camp anyway, but the family was still represented on Saturday.Continuing to pursue an NFL career after brief opportunities with San Diego and Jacksonville, tight end Mike Flacco, the younger brother of the Super Bowl XLVII MVP, was a tryout participant for Baltimore this weekend. The Ravens have a very deep group of tight ends on their offseason roster, but the 29-year-old can’t help but think about having the opportunity to catch passes from his older brother.“That’d be a dream if I could make it that long,” said Mike Flacco, who played his college football at New Haven. “Just day by day and try to give it all I’ve got.”Of course, this weekend’s tryout isn’t Mike Flacco’s only link to Baltimore sports as he was drafted by the Orioles in the 31st round of the 2009 draft out of CCBC-Catonsville. Primarily a first baseman, he advanced as high as Double-A Bowie before being traded to the Boston Red Sox and electing to retire from professional baseball in 2013 with a career .253 average.In 2013 with Division II New Haven, Mike Flacco caught 30 passes for 591 yards and nine touchdowns. He was signed by the Chargers the following spring but cut at the end of the 2014 preseason. The Jaguars then signed him to their practice squad in October 2014, but he only stuck with that organization for a few weeks.The 6-foot-5, 251-pound tight end has only received a few tryouts since then, but he isn’t ready to give up on the possibility of a football career just yet.“It’s been long. It’s been all over the place,” said Mike Flacco about his athletic endeavors. “Unfortunately, I’ve never quite gotten to the point where I want to yet. You just push and if it happens, it happens. If not, I’ll go back to school and I’ll be happy.”He has been pursuing a degree in chemical engineering at Villanova.His chances of receiving an extended look with the Ravens beyond this weekend are remote, but that didn’t stop him from showing off some athletic ability on Saturday as he caught a long pass in 1-on-1 drills and made a few other receptions during the practice session.“It’s been great. Mike is a great kid,” head coach John Harbaugh said. “He does move a little bit like Joe. The body mechanics, a little bit, are similar, so it’s fun to watch.”Two draft picks sidelinedThird-round defensive end Bronson Kaufusi was the only member of Baltimore’s 2016 draft class not on the field during Saturday’s practice open to media.“Bronson tweaked his back a little bit yesterday,” Harbaugh said. “He was out here yesterday practicing, did a good job, and strained his lower back a little. He’s not practicing today.”Fourth-round running back Kenneth Dixon only observed Saturday’s practice as he continues to deal with a hamstring issue stemming from his March pro day.Harbaugh also announced that fullback Trevon Pendleton, a tryout player from Michigan State, suffered a broken foot on Friday.No joint training camp practices this yearHarbaugh confirmed that the Ravens would not have any joint practices with another team this summer.Baltimore hosted San Francisco in Owings Mills two years ago and traveled to Philadelphia to practice against the Eagles ahead of their preseason meeting last August.last_img read more

BYU golfer Patrick Fishburn has another great opening round, leads Utah Open

first_imgToday I was hitting a lot of iron-shots pretty close, hitting the driver well and I chipped the ball pretty well. – Patrick FishburnPROVO — If nothing else, Patrick Fishburn sure knows how to handle the first round of the Siegfried & Jensen Utah Open.A year after posting a record-tying 62 in the first round of the tournament, Fishburn fired a 9-under-par 63 in Friday’s first round at Riverside Country Club to take a two-stroke lead after 18 holes of the 54-hole tournament.The 24-year-old, who will be a senior for the BYU golf team this year, put 11 birdies on his card en route to his sparkling 63. That’s two shots better than Edward Olson, a professional from Santa Cruz, California, and three ahead of Ty Travis, a 24-year-old from Boise who was the runner-up in last year’s Utah Open, and Riley Arp of Scottsdale.“It was pretty similar,” Fishburn said in comparing his opening round to last year’s. “Today I was hitting a lot of iron-shots pretty close, hitting the driver well and I chipped the ball pretty well.”Fishburn acknowledged that he hasn’t played quite as well as last summer when he won the Utah State Amateur and said Friday’s round was “one of the better rounds I’ve had for a little bit.”Zac Blair, the 27-year-old former BYU golfer who has been a regular on the PGA Tour the past two years, finished with a 4-under-par 68 and is tied with seven golfers for seventh place. Blair missed by one point of qualifying for this week’s FedEx Cup playoffs and will tee it up next week in the first leg of the playoffs in an effort to regain his PGA Tour status for next season.“I got a bunch of looks. I just need to make a few more putts,” said Blair, whose dad, Jimmy, caddied for him before playing his own round of golf in the afternoon.“It’s always fun to play at home on a course you know pretty well and getting my dad out here on the bag was pretty cool. It’s awesome.”Fishburn started off hot with birdies on five of his first seven holes, before hitting a bump and making bogeys at the 9th and 10th holes with a missed green and a three-putt. Then he ran off five straight birdies from holes 12-16, before adding another at No. 18.Last year, Fishburn followed his opening 62 with a 71 to keep the lead, but a final-round 73 left him in a tie for fifth place overall, six shots behind winner Zahkai Brown. Fishburn says he won’t abandon his usual aggressive style but will try to play “smarter” the next two days than last year.“Sometimes I play a little too aggressive,” he said. “I’m still going to play aggressive, but probably not stupid.”OPEN NOTES: Former BYU golfer Lea Garner, who is the first women to play in the Utah Open, started off well and was 1-under through 12 holes before faltering down the stretch with a triple bogey, double bogey and two bogeys and finishing with a 78 . . . Former BYU golfer and Masters champion Mike Weir withdrew after just a few holes, apparently because of issues with his back . . . Defending champion Brown finished with a 70 . . . Dean Wilson, a former champion (1999) and a longtime PGA Tour player, finished at even-par 72 . . . The cut for the low 60 and ties is expected to be around 146 or 147 . . .
