During full stretches it was evident that Williams, who has been practicing all spring, was unable to do as much with the right leg as the left.Again, this is a minor issue, probably a hamstring or calf strain, but it hasn’t even kept him off the field that we know of so don’t overreact quite yet. We’ll seek clarification from Gus Malzahn after practice.Otherwise there was very little change from a week ago personnel-wise, at least during the initial opening viewing periods.There were no defensive drills done where discerning the depth chart was possible and the offense rotated pretty heavily at the positions being battled.From the sound of it, defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson was not pleased with his group’s performance in Saturday’s scrimmageDefensive line coach Rodney Garner was really getting after Andrew Williams during one drillThere was an offensive set with both Chandler Cox and Kamryn Pettway blocking out of the backfieldThe offensive linemen remains Shon Coleman, Alex Kozan, Austin Golson, Braden Smith and Avery YoungThe second group includes a mix of players with Xavier Dampeer at centerReturn squads remained the same:Kickoff returns included Ricardo Louis, Stanton Truitt, Roc Thomas and Johnathan FordPunt returns were Jason Smith, Marcus Davis, Gray King and Stephen RobertsTruittand Tim Irvin are still in orange no contact jerseys Gabe Wright was in attendance again Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Vanderbilt fans wait out the wet

first_imgVanderbilt Commodores players wait during a lightning delay prior to the game against the Temple Owls at Vanderbilt Stadium.New look: It was announced earlier in the week that Vanderbilt would wear new black matte helmets with the signature gold “V” on the side.What wasn’t known until Thursday night was that the Commodores would be in new uniforms as well.The players wore black pants and black jerseys. The jerseys had gold numbers on the front back and the shoulders.Instead of names on the back or “Vanderbilt” like last season, the jerseys had “ANCHOR DOWN” written on the back.Seymour dresses: Running back Jerron Seymour, last season’s leading rusher, was not on the depth chart because of an undisclosed injury.Seymour was in uniform for the game.Coach Derek Mason had said earlier in the week that the decision not to play Seymour was his. He said if Seymour was needed he could play.Redshirt freshman Ralph Webb started at running back.Where’s the coach? Not only did Mason not lead the Commodores onto the field as former coach James Franklin did, but he did not even come out of the tunnel with them.Mason stood on the sideline and waited for the players as they charged out of the tunnel through a blast of smoke.Commodores captains: Vanderbilt’s team captains were outside linebacker Andrew East, offensive lineman Joe Townsend and outside linebacker Kyle Woestmann. Quarterback Patton Robinette was an honorary captain.Etc.: The Commodores entered the season with a 582-582-50 all-time record … Mason is attempting to become the first Commodores coach to post a winning season in his first season since Fred Pancoast went 7-4 in 1975 … Mason is one of five first-time head coaches in the FBS this season (Arkansas State’s Blake Anderson, Western Kentucky’s Jeff Brohm, Connecticut’s Bon Diaco, Florida Atlantic’s Charles Partridge) … Before Thursday, Vanderbilt had won just eight of its previous 25 season openers, but six of those were since the 2004 season … Before Thursday, the Commodores were 3-5 on Thursday nights.Contributing: Dave Ammenheuser.Interactive graphic 2014 Vanderbilt Football Schedule Fans scurried to stay dry outside Vanderbilt Stadium during a torrential downpour, which was accompanied by lightning and thunder and delayed the start of the Commodores’ season opener against Temple for about 95 minutes Thursday night.“We just stayed in the parking garage and watched the sheets of rain,” fan Shelia Miller said. “Lots and lots of people were coming back and soaked to the bone. We brought these (plastic ponchos) because we checked the weather on Channel 4 right before we left. They said it was raining at LP Field and it was coming by Vandy. They didn’t say it was going to be sheets and lightning, but they said it was going to rain.”The kickoff was originally scheduled for 8:15 p.m.The first delay moved it back to 9 p.m.After lightning struck again it was moved to 9:13 p.m.RELATED: Derek Mason era at Vanderbilt is off to a rough startThe rain finally stopped, but there were two more bolts of lightning in the area, and the last delay moved the start to 9:53 p.m.It was the first time a Vanderbilt home game has been delayed since the Commodores played Tennessee State on Sept. 23, 2006. That delay lasted 40 minutes as Vanderbilt won the game 38-9.Another fan, Justin Smith, said he was determined to wait out the inclement weather.“We got here a little bit after the rain so we didn’t have to stand in it too much,” said Smith, who lives in Hendersonville. “I’ve just been sitting, watching people and talking during the delay. There’s not much else to do.”Vanderbilt and Temple players finally came onto the field at 9:09 p.m.The gates opened at 9:22 p.m. and fans who had stuck around were finally allowed into the stadium.last_img read more

Club chief insists they have ‘very good and trusting exchange’ with…

first_imgKenny joined the Bundesliga club on loan in the summer, having found his chances of first-team football limited at Everton.He has proven to be a big hit in Germany, establishing himself as a first-team regular under David Wagner and impressing with his performances.They are keen to keep him beyond the summer, with them planning to discuss the possibility of that with Everton, although reports have indicated that may be tough as his performances have attracted interest from elsewhere.Embed from Getty ImagesSchneider, though, insists there are plans to sit down with the Toffees and explore the possibility of keeping the 22-year-old Scouser.Speaking to WAZ, he said that there is “a very good and trusting exchange with those responsible at Kenny’s parent club Everton FC”, indicating there is a good relationship between both clubs.On the prospect of keeping Kenny, he said that they will assess everything, from “the situation at Everton, the situation of the player and that of FC Schalke 04” to see if there is a deal that suits all parties.Whether Kenny does stay in Germany is likely to rest heavily on what business Everton do in the summer, though.They currently have Seamus Coleman and Djibril Sidibé in the position, hence Kenny heading out on loan in the summer.There is a purchase option Sidibé’s loan and should they look to activate that, then Kenny’s chances of moving again will only be increased.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameWill You Build The Most Beautiful City?Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoWork from Home | Search AdsOnline Jobs Might Pay More Than You ThinkWork from Home | Search AdsUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 50?

Odion Ighalo Opens Goal Scoring Account as Man Utd Hammer Club…

first_imgOdion Ighalo points to the sky in his usual ways of giving the credit for his goal to God. He specially dedicated his first goal for Manchester United to his late elder sister, Mary. That goal is also the first to be scored by any Nigerian player in United colors.Ighalo – who signed for United in a shock deadline day loan move from Shanghai Shenhua in January – was part of the resurgent Red Devils that dominated the Belgian team to pull through to the Last 16 stage of the Europa League on 6-1 aggregate.Bruno Fernandes scored his second United penalty in a week after Simon Deli was sent off for a ludicrous handball to block Daniel James’ shot.The Portuguese, who was at the centre of everything, had a hand in the second as he lifted a pass over the top to Juan Mata, who squared for full debutant Ighalo to tap in from six yards.And Scott McTominay, making his first start following an injury, side-footed in a third to wrap the tie up before half-time.Fred scored his first two goals of the season in the final 10 minutes as United got the big scoreline their performance deserved.Club Bruges brought thousands of noisy fans to Old Trafford to help with a good atmosphere – but their players could not match their efforts and created nothing of note.The draw for the last 16 takes place to at 12:00 GMT – with United able to face any of the other teams left.Elsewhere in North London, Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a glaring chance with the last kick as Arsenal crashed to a shocking Europa League defeat to Olympiacos.Coming with an away 1-0 edge into the game, Arsenal lost 1-2 at the Emirates to gift Olympiacos passage to the last 16 on the away goal advantage.Aubameyang looked like he had once again rescued his side from an abject showing when his superb scissor kick put them in the driving seat.But the visitors punished awful set-piece defending for a second time as Youssef El Arabi poked in.And there was still time for Aubameyang to screw wide from five yards out.The Gunners went out on the away goal ruleShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Olympiacos knock out Arsenal on away goal ruleDuro IkhazuagbeNigerian international, Odion Ighalo on Thursday night opened his goal scoring account for Manchester United as he poke past Club Bruges’ Simon Mignolet for his first goal for the Red Devils.After giving supplications to God for the goal at Old Trafford, the former Super Eagles frontman dedicated it to his late sister, Mary Atole who died in Canada last December.last_img read more

Dick Wolf fires ‘Law & Order’ spin-off writer after gun-toting threat to “light…up” looters

first_imgPhoto by: Elizabeth Sisson/NBC(LOS ANGELES) — (NOTE LANGUAGE) Law & Order creator and executive producer Dick Wolf has fired Chris Gore, a writer on the upcoming spin-off that will center on veteran Chris Meloni’s Elliot Stabler, after Gore posted a rifle-toting photo threatening potential looters.Gore was referring to unrest in California in the wake of the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed last month by a now-terminated Minneapolis police officer who knelt on the handcuffed man’s neck.In one post, captioned “Curfew,” Gore is pictured wearing a face covering and holding an AR-style rifle, with the caption “Curfew…” Another comment has Gore referring to unrest that happened on Sunset Boulevard Monday evening, saying he would “light motherf***ers up who are trying to f*** w/ my property.”Another TV production crew member, Drew Janda, tweeted Gore’s Facebook post to Meloni, and the actor responded by saying, in part, “I have no idea who this person is or what they do.”In a statement to Variety, Wolf made it known he had dropped the hammer. “I will not tolerate this conduct, especially during our hour of national grief. I am terminating Craig Gore immediately.”Gore was a writer and executive producer on CBS’ show S.W.A.T. and was once a co-executive producer on Wolf’s Chicago P.D.By Stephen IervolinoCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Trial begins for San Francisco pier killing that provoked immigration debate

first_img Related Steinle Family(SAN FRANCISCO) — The murder trial began on Monday for an undocumented immigrant accused of gunning down a young woman on a San Francisco pier two years ago.Kate Steinle, 32, was shot dead while walking on a pier with her father on July 1, 2015. The suspect, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, formerly known as Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, claims he found the gun wrapped in a T-shirt under a bench and it went off accidentally, The Associated Press reported. But prosecutors argue he carelessly pointed the weapon at people. The Bureau of Land Management has said that the gun belonged to one of their enforcement rangers and was stolen from a federal agent’s car.Zarate, of Mexico, had been deported several times and has previous convictions for re-entry after deportation. He is charged with second-degree murder in Steinle’s death and has pleaded not guilty.Before the killing, he had been released from a San Francisco jail after a minor drug charge was dismissed. While U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had issued a detainer for Zarate, he was released under the city’s sanctuary laws. A sanctuary city is a municipality that limits its cooperation with the federal government’s efforts to enforce immigration law.Steinle’s death became the center of a national immigration debate, and during the 2016 presidential campaign, now-President Donald Trump invoked the case as part of his justification for building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.Steinle’s father, James Steinle, who was with her when she was shot, took the stand for the prosecution Monday, and in emotional testimony, he described not understanding what happened initially. When he saw something was wrong, James Steinle said he grabbed and held his daughter, and when he turned her over he noticed what appeared to be a bullet wound. He said he provided CPR until paramedics arrived.According to The San Francisco Chronicle, Assistant District Attorney Diana Garcia said in opening arguments that Zarate aimed the gun at either Kate Steinle or at the crowd.“She’s dead because this man … pointed this gun in her direction and pulled the trigger,” Garcia told the jury, according to the Chronicle.Defense attorney Matt Gonzalez told the jurors “this was a tragedy and an accident,” calling it a “freakish ricochet.”He said his client found the gun on the pier and that it discharged accidentally and unintentionally. Gonzalez said after the gun accidentally fired, Zarate threw it in the water to make it stop firing.Gonzalez said Zarate did not realize he had shot somebody and he argued the gun was an “accident waiting to happen.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
