Injuries pile up for Vanderbilt

first_imgSee ya in 2021: This was the front end of a home-and-home series between Vanderbilt and Houston, but the next game will not be until 2021 in Nashville. It is scheduled for Oct. 2, 2021 at Vanderbilt Stadium. The two teams first met in Vanderbilt’s 41-24 win in the BBVA Compass Bowl to end the 2013 season.Opponent’s records: Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. broke program records for most career TD runs by a quarterback and the most TD runs by any Cougars player in a single season. Also, senior safety Adrian McDonald’s first-quarter interception was the 17th pick of his career, a new Houston record.Briefly: Junior defensive end Torrey Agee had his first career sack … Sophomore outside linebacker Landon Stokes made his first career start … Vanderbilt has played nine of the 12 FBS schools in Texas. It has yet to play UTEP, UT-San Antonio or Texas State … Tommy Openshaw shanked an 11-yard punt in the first quarter.Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.Vanderbilt falls to Houston: 5 observations Injured Vanderbilt offensive lineman Justin Skule (58) leaves the field after getting hurt playing against Houston in the first quarter on Oct. 31, 2015.Injured Vanderbilt offensive lineman Justin Skule (58) leaves the field after getting hurt playing against Houston in the first quarter on Oct. 31, 2015. HOUSTON — Vanderbilt’s 34-0 loss to No. 18 Houston was worsened by injuries Saturday night.Offensive tackles Justin Skule and Blake Fromang and defensive end Adam Butler suffered injuries during a four-minute span in the first quarter. True freshman quarterback Kyle Shurmur also left the game with an unspecified injury.And defensive end Caleb Azubike missed a third straight game for what coach Derek Mason called a “jawline break” and “fractured teeth.” But Mason added that he expects Azubike to return against No. 11 Florida next Saturday.Mason did not provide additional information on the other injured players’ conditions.Skule’s left leg was placed in an air cast, and he was carted off the field. Skule had just entered the game as a sixth offensive lineman in a heavy run package. Fromang, the starting right tackle, later went down with a leg injury. Butler also suffered a leg injury in the first quarter and was carted off.Mason said after the game that Shurmur was injured, but he did not provide details.Azubike has not played since Mason said he had an emergency dental procedure before the Oct. 17 South Carolina game. In Azubike’s absence, Jonathan Wynn made his sixth career start (fourth at defensive end).Linebacker Nigel Bowden missed a sixth consecutive game with concussion symptoms, and Mason has not given a time for his return.Vanderbilt’s shutout loss brings Derek Mason apologyAnother Shurmur start: Vanderbilt started five different quarterbacks over the past two seasons (20 games), but  Shurmur became only the third to start back-to-back games during that stretch. Last season, Wade Freebeck started three straight games and four overall. And Johnny McCrary started 11 consecutive games before Shurmur ended that streak with his debut against Missouri on Oct. 24.Shurmur started against Houston, but McCrary also played. Shurmur was already the seventh true freshmen to start at quarterback for Vanderbilt since the NCAA changed first-year eligibility rules in 1972.Almost 100: Running back Ralph Webb rushed for 99 yards for a second straight game. Already Vanderbilt’s freshman rushing record holder last season, Webb moved into fourth on the program’s all-time sophomore rushing list. He has 693 rushing yards this season. Jermaine Johnson’s 877 yards (1994) stand as the highest rushing mark for a Commodores sophomore.SPANNING THE SEC: Check in for the latest news, notes, scores and more for one of college football’s best conferences!last_img read more

Cardiff v QPR player ratings

first_imgChampionship leaders Cardiff came from behind to beat QPR after Matt Smith’s early goal. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 2-1 defeat against Neil Warnock’s side. Alex Smithies: 7Kept the score down, producing a number of second-half saves as Cardiff totally dominated after the interval.AdChoices广告Darnell Furlong: 7Embed from Getty ImagesDid well. The highlight of his encouraging performance was a superb challenge on Junior Hoilett, after which the former QPR man moved to the opposite flank and had much more success.Steven Caulker: 5Playing against his former club, in his first league appearance since last October, Caulker struggled. His lack of sharpness was evident throughout and he played Nedum Onuoha into trouble to trigger the defensive aberration which led to Cardiff’s equaliser.Nedum Onuoha: 5Embed from Getty ImagesFor the second away game running, Onuoha’s overall display was ok but one bad mistake led to a goal. Done no favours by Caulker’s pass, he still had an opportunity to deal with the situation but failed to do so and his woefully under-hit backpass led to Smithies’ clearance cannoning into the net off Hoilett.Jake Bidwell: 6Solid and dependable on the left. Or thoroughly average, depending on how you see it.Josh Scowen: 7Gave Rangers a boost by coming through a fitness test and continued his impressive form with another good showing in midfield. Worked hard throughout and used the ball well.Massimo Luongo: 6Symbolic of QPR’s performance, he started well and caused Cardiff some problems early on but then faded.Josh Freeman: 7Delivered the ball into the box for Smith to score and continually tried to make things happen.Jamie Mackie: 7Embed from Getty ImagesUnlucky not to score when his shot hit the post. Pressed well but offered little in an attacking sense in the second half before being taken off. Matt Smith: 6 Took his goal – his second in as many games – well but offered very little after that, either as an attacking threat or in terms of pressing from the front, which is a key part of Rangers’ tactics. Conor Washington: 5Struggled to make things happen and his touch continually let him down. Willing to work but the quality just wasn’t there.Idrissa Sylla: 6Unable to make any real impact after coming on for the final half an hour. The same applied to Pawel Wszolek and Yeni Ngbakoto, who were later also brought on.

Chelsea swap possible ‘in theory’, player may not feel attracted by…

first_imgAs Italian newspaper Tuttosport analyses Juventus’ plans to rebuild their midfield today, the possibility of a swap with Chelsea is thrown into the mix. They bring a story where they talk a little about Miralem Pjanic, whose form for the Old Lady has been attracting interest from foreign clubs.It’s mentioned that Chelsea are one of the sides who’ve made approaches for the Bosnian international in the past, and that could turn out to be interesting for Juve now.That’s because the Blues are said to be evaluating the situation of Jorginho. The London side reportedly consider him to be worth €60m right now.Embed from Getty ImagesTuttosport writes that ‘in theory’, Pjanic and Jorginho could be traded equally, with no extra costs for either of the sides.However, the outlet also says that Chelsea may not be the most attractive option for the Juventus player. It’s claimed that the call from Barcelona is ‘unmatched’ by the Blues’ interest.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge 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.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Club planning negotiation with Tottenham over player – Hoping Spurs reduce…

first_imgAC Milan are planning on reopening negotiations with Tottenham over a move for Serge Aurier this summer. That’s according to Corriere Dello Sport, who say the Italian side are working to improve their options at right-back and have identified the Spurs man as an ideal target.Aurier is keen on the move and sees Milan as a ‘suitable solution’ for his career, mainly as he’s found himself out of favour under Jose Mourinho.He has instructed his agent to get a deal done with AC Milan and ensure they seal a transfer, but there is a problem over Tottenham’s asking price.Embed from Getty ImagesThey want €22-23m for the defender, a price that’s a little high for Milan, who hope to ‘snatch him on better terms’.Any negotiation is seen as ‘not easy’ because of Tottenham’s demands, and that is why Milan have put it on their schedule to talk with agents and discover if Spurs can be moved from their current stance.If not, the Serie A side have a shortlist of alternatives, but their focus is very much on Aurier and getting him if they can.Any potential deal, though, is heavily dependent on Tottenham lowering their asking price, an eventuality that seems unlikely given how Daniel Levy has done business in the past.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!

Australia captain admits to ball-tampering plan

first_imgCAPE TOWN, (Reuters) – South Africa opened up a potentially match-winning lead on day three of the third test on Saturday as Australia captain Steve Smith admitted his side tampered with the ball in a confession that sent shockwaves through the sport. In an extraordinary news conference after the day’s play, Smith and Australia batsman Cameron Bancroft confessed to a plan to use sand stuck to tape to alter the condition of the ball in an effort to produce more swing.Cameron BancroftBancroft has been charged with a Level Two offence by the International Cricket Council, but whether Smith will face any sanction after admitting to hatching the plot along with the team’s “leadership group” remains to be seen.South Africa will resume their second innings on 238 for five on Sunday, already with a potentially match-winning lead of 294 on a deteriorating wicket that is offering assistance to the bowlers. AB de Villiers is not out on 51 and will resume on the fourth morning with Quinton de Kock, on 29, as the pair look to push the lead past 350 runs at least with two full days remaining and sunshine predicted.But the headline issue in an already tempestuous series in which five players have been sanctioned and Australia complained of “disgraceful” South African supporters verbally abusing their players, was the admission of the touring side that they tried to cheat in a plot hatched at lunch on the third day.This came to light after Bancroft, the most junior member of the side and the player tasked with carrying out the plan, was caught on camera rubbing a yellow object against the ball. He was then shown hastily putting the object down the front of his trousers before speaking to on-field umpires Nigel Llong and Richard Illingworth, who had been alerted to the suspicious behaviour.Bancroft turned out his pockets and showed the umpires a black piece of cloth before play continued and the hosts tightened their hold on the match.The ICC announced its intention to charge Bancroft at the close of play and he faces a maximum punishment of a 100 percent fine of his match fee and four demerit points, which would trigger an automatic one-match ban. “I’m embarrassed, the boys in the shed are embarrassed and I feel for Cam as well,” Smith told reporters.“It is not what we want to see in the game, it’s not what the Australian cricket team is about. Being the leader of the team I am incredibly sorry for trying to bring the game into disrepute like we did today.”The four-match series is poised at 1-1, with the final test due to start in Johannesburg on Friday.last_img read more

Murder warrant issued for fired Texas cop who killed 15-year-old Jordan Edwards

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BALCH SPRINGS, Texas) — An arrest warrant for murder has been issued for the former Balch Springs, Texas, police officer who fatally shot 15-year-old Jordan Edwards, ABC News has confirmed.Roy Oliver was fired earlier this week, Balch Springs Police Chief Jonathan Haber announced at a press conference Tuesday. Oliver had been a member of the department for nearly six years.Oliver turned himself in Friday night to the Parker County jail on a $300,000 bond, according to ABC affiliate WFAA-TV.A spokeswoman for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department said the warrant was issued Friday.“The warrant was issued due to evidence that suggested Mr. Oliver intended to cause serious bodily injury and commit an act clearly dangerous to human life that caused the death of an individual,” Melinda Urbina, the department’s public information officer, told ABC News in a statement. “The warrant gives any peace officer the authority to arrest Roy Oliver for the crime of murder. Mr. Oliver can also turn himself into any peace officer if he so chooses.”She added: “The investigation into the death of Jordan Edwards will continue and does not conclude with the arrest of Roy Oliver.”The incident in question took place Saturday evening as police were responding to a report of “several underage kids” who were allegedly drunk at a residence in Balch Springs. Police initially said that Edwards was in a vehicle that backed up in the direction of the responding officers “in an aggressive manner.” Oliver then opened fire, striking Edwards, who was sitting in the front passenger seat. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.Authorities later admitted, however, that they had misspoken in recounting what occurred and that it appeared as though the vehicle was driving away from the officers when shots were fired, based on body cam footage.“I unintentionally, incorrectly said the vehicle was backing down the road,” Haber said Monday. “According to the video, the vehicle was moving forward as the officer approached.”Haber added, “After reviewing the video, I don’t believe that [the shooting] met our core values.”The video footage has not been released to the public.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

White Sox retire Mark Buehrle’s No. 56 jersey

first_img Related iStock/Thinkstock(CHICAGO) — The Chicago White Sox lost to the Oakland A’s 10-2 on Saturday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field. They probably could’ve used the arm of the man they were retiring, Mark Buehrle.Before the game, the Whie Sox retired Buehrle’s No. 56 jersey. “It’s an amazing feeling,” said the 38-year-old Buehrle, “I really can’t put it into words how I feel. … It’s a special day.”Buehrle is considered the greatest White Sox left-hander in the expansion era, helping the White Sox win the 2005 World Series. The former starter was gifted a four-wheeler and a pickup truck duringt the 30-minute ceremony.“As I look around this stadium, it is just amazing how much these people love you or how many people came out to see you on this great day,” team owner Jerry Reinsdorf said. “In case you weren’t aware of it, we don’t draw 40,000 every day.”Hall of Famer Frank Thomas and manager Ozzie Guillen were among several former Buehrle teammates in attendance. “Buehrle, day in and day out, was the same guy, and that’s what makes him so special,” Guillen said. “His teammates love him.”The five-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove winner earned 161 or his 214 victories in a White Sox uniform. He is the 11th player in team history to have his number retired.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more
