Phillip Dorsett Taken No. 29 Overall In NFL Draft

He had an excellent combine and impressed numerous franchises during individual workouts. Dorsett was a serious deep threat with the Hurricanes, averaging 24.2 yards per catch, with 10 of his 36 catches going for touchdowns. According to NFL.com, Dorsett’s closest comparison is John Brown. Here’s more: He can challenge teams vertically inside or outside and he has home-run potential after the catch as a slot receiver. With smaller wide receivers like T.Y. Hilton and Antonio Brown proving that small and fast can win in the NFL, Dorsett should be coveted by more than one team and has the potential to turn into a star in the NFL.The Green Bay Packers are now on the clock.last_img read more

Senators reject chance to immediately kill tanker ban but bill not safe

Posted in tnljfllg on October 13th, 2019

first_imgOTTAWA, O.N. – The Senate has rejected a committee report that recommended scrapping the Trudeau government’s bill to ban oil tanker traffic in the environmentally sensitive waters off northern British Columbia.But that’s not a guarantee the bill will survive.A number of Independent senators are opposed to the bill but nevertheless voted against the Conservative-written report of the Senate’s transportation and communications committee because they felt it was too partisan and inflammatory. They also want a chance to propose amendments to the bill.The report asserted that the bill is politically motivated and will divide the country, inflame separatist sentiment in Alberta and stoke resentment of Indigenous Peoples; it also accused the Trudeau government of intentionally setting out to destroy the economy of Alberta, where the Liberals have little hope of winning seats in this fall’s federal election.Had senators voted to accept the committee report, the bill would have been killed immediately; rejecting the report means the bill will proceed to third reading in the Senate, during which amendments can be proposed.last_img read more

Buckeyes Matta in favor of tournament expansion

Posted in uecgexfa on September 28th, 2019

You can never have too much of a good thing. Just ask the NCAA.Although the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is one of the more popular sporting events in the country, coaches, school presidents and athletic directors from around the nation met last week to discuss a possible change. The discussions focused on a potential increase of the tournament from 65 to as many as 96 teams.A final decision was not made, nor is it expected to be anytime soon.The possible expansion has received mixed reviews throughout the country, but Ohio State coach Thad Matta said he loves the idea.“I think it would be excellent, I really do,” Matta said. “I think that you look at what used to be 16 [teams] and then I think they took it to 24 then to 32, 48 and 64. I think that that would be a great thing.”Some speculate that the longer list of tournament invitees would give teams from mid-major conferences a better chance to play in the postseason. It is possible that the extra round could serve as a play-in round for smaller schools that would otherwise be denied the opportunity.Others, however, suggest that the extra round would be filled with more teams from the power conferences, such as the Big Ten. It is thought that teams that finish at or near .500 in their conference could get the nod over the smaller schools to fill the additional spots.Matta made it very clear which side of the argument he supports.“I’d say the Big Ten,” Matta said when asked whether he’d like to see teams from his own conference or mid-major conferences make the tournament. “I know this [conference] is hard. I know what it takes to go through a stretch like we do of 18 Big Ten games.”One concern Matta did express with the expansion was a potential decreased interest in the regular season — games that the coach said are what makes college basketball so great.“The greatest thing I ever heard was from John Wooden and he said, ‘People put too much emphasis on the last game of the year,’” Matta said. “There is so much excitement along the way and I think that we lose the sight of what’s happening now as it’s all geared toward getting into the NCAA Tournament. There is so much great basketball to be played in the month of February and even in early March.”A possible solution to Matta’s problem would be an increase in high-profile, out-of-conference matchups, a change that he said would be rather easy.“[A larger tournament] allows you to be a little more risky in your non-conference schedule,” he said. “We’ve [played] Tennessee, we’ve done Florida and we’ve done LSU, but you can get out and do those things a little bit better and know that you’re going to be rewarded.”Even given his concern, Matta was clear that he felt an expanded tournament would be in the best interest of college basketball. There are some, like OSU junior David Lighty, who see the situation a little differently.Lighty doesn’t see a need for a change, but unlike his coach who seemed concerned about bettering the entire sport, his opinion was based on more selfish reasoning.“I like it how it is,” Lighty said. “As long as we’re in it.” read more

Unai Emery wont rush Laurent Koscielny back to action

Posted in tivdvyll on September 18th, 2019

first_imgArsenal have been handed an injury boost, as the skipper Laurent Koscielny returned to training after five months of absence.The 33-year-old defender has picked up a severe Achilles tendon injury in the Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid, which saw him skipping the 2018 FIFA World Cup.Although he returned to the training ground, the former Lorient man won’t be available until December. Meanwhile, Unai Emery eagerly anticipates Koscielny’s return in spite of some encouraging performance from Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi.Still, the former Paris Saint-Germain manager doesn’t want to rush the Frenchman back to action until he is 100% ready, that’s according to the famous portal Goal.com.“We need to be calm with him. Calm because we need [to wait] more than a month,” Emery said.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“He needs to feel [well] first, if he is doing some things, then he is doing well.“Then when he can play and available for games in the training, [then] we can think he is okay to play.“He is very important for us because he is our captain. He is starting this week to do some training with us together and it is very, very good news for us.“I think we need also to give confidence to him, to be close with us because it was a big injury. But now he is getting better, he is training with us in some things and this is very positive.”Although Koscielny has yet to play under Emery, his importance in the Gunners’ dressing room is undeniable, and there’s no doubt his return will only help the team maintain an impressive spell.last_img read more

I think it’s about concentration, you know that there are only six games in the Champions League group and you’re more focused.“We need to recover in the league, because it’s not our place to be so far away from the top spots. We need to get back to being the Roma of before.Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.“If we work hard with the right attitude we can do even better than third place and the Champions League semi-final.“I fight for Roma, we have to fight for third place and to go as far as possible in Europe.”The Brazilian went on to talk about teammate Patrik Schick who hasn’t impressed since signing from the Blucerciati in 2017.“He’s still young and there’s a lot of pressure on him. He has quality, but he must try to have a stronger character, even if everyone has his own personality.“He needs patience and trust, in my opinion he’s a great player.”last_img read more
