AUBURN – Ricardo Louis won’t ever be forgotten on the Plains, or Between the Hedges.Sports immortality comes with the territory when you’re a part of a play such as the Prayer at Jordan-Hare.The Tigers wide receiver does not want the miraculous 76-yard touchdown grab he made against Georgia on Nov. 16, 2013 to define his Auburn career, though Louis says he does not feel any burden to perform.“Pressure to me is, I have to do it,” Louis said. “Like, ‘oh my God, if I don’t do it then …’ – I don’t want to put that on myself because I know I’m a great player if I just go out and play and have fun, that way it won’t be no pressure.”As he enters his final season, Louis is working on being “more consistent,” coming out of his breaks and deep balls as he looks to replace Sammie Coates as Auburn’s deep threat in the fall.“We need someone to assume that role and we’ve been really good the last couple of years of taking the top off and opening things up,” offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said. “But I think Ricardo, he can still be an all-around, well-rounded receiver. … He’s just a very talented athlete.“He’s someone you really hope just explodes and has that senior year you’re looking for.”Louis had 21 catches for 261 yards and three touchdowns, including 66-yard score in the Outback Bowl, along with 18 carries for 220 yards and a score last season. However, those were almost all declines in production from his sophomore season, when he tallied 28 catches for 325 yards for two scores and 19 carries for 198 yards, as drops were occasionally an issue for Louis in 2014.After two years in a variety of roles, Louis’ game experience and knowledge of Gus Malzahn’s Hurry-Up, No-Huddle offense is second to none among the offensive skill position players.“He’s one of those guys — one of those seniors that has a lot of experience, a lot of big game experience and has played well in big games,” Malzahn said. “We really just want (him) to take that next step. He’s one of our leaders, so we’ll expect big things out of him next year.”Though his left knee has been lightly wrapped this spring, which would naturally be a cause for potential difficulty in establishing oneself as a speedy vertical threat, Louis says it’s just a precaution.While Louis can be dangerous on the edge and weave his way through traffic over the middle, the Miami native is spending the spring working at both split end and flanker, while also seeing some reps on kickoff returns and the occasional jet sweep.The former high school quarterback is the latest in a line of converted signal callers to develop as receivers in Malzahn’s offense.Louis has the speedy and agility of Quan Bray, another former high school quarterback, with the big play potential of Coates and an ability to deliver in the clutch much like Nick Marshall.Louis recognizes his time to put all those skills together and have a breakout season, not just one moment, is running out, but he’s not feeling any heat.“It’s just a matter of just doing it,” Louis said.

Related Fernando Hierro has left his post as the Spanish national team head coach in the wake of the side’s surprising elimination at the hands of hosts Russia in the last 16 of the ongoing FIFA World Cup tournament.Spain were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Russia after both sides played out a 1-1 draw after regulation time and extra time.Fernando Hierro was asked to step up from his sporting director role to take charge of the team in Russia following the dismissal of Real Madrid manager Julien Lopetegui as head coach some days before the tournament kicked off.His exit was revealed on Sunday morning via a statement from the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).The statement also confirmed that the 50-year-old won’t return to his former Sporting Director role.It read: “After many kilometers of walking together, the Royal Spanish Football Federation and Fernando Hierro put an end to their relationship once the participation of Spain in the World Cup in Russia ended.“The last Spanish coach declined to return to his previous position as sports director of the RFEF to seek new horizons and undertake new professional challenges.“After two stages as sports director of the Federation, the first between 2007 and 2011 – coinciding with the best stage of the National Soccer Team, which won the 2008 European Championship with Luis Aragonés as coach and the 2010 World Cup with Vicente del Bosque- and the second from November 2017 until now, the RFEF wants to thank Fernando Hierro for his commitment and sense of responsibility when he takes the lead in the national team in extraordinary situations as well as in the performance of all his duties, which will always be his home.“The Federation wants to highlight the professional and human values of an extraordinary athlete.“Thanks for everything, Fernando!” The statement from RFEF concluded.
Related Fox Picture Group/Frank Micelotta(LOS ANGELES) — One of the numerous women who shared a story regarding alleged unwanted sexual advances from Harvey Weinstein in the overarching New Yorker piece Tuesday is Jessica Barth, an actress who in 2011 met the famed producer at the Golden Globes.Barth, like others in the article, alleges that she was invited under the guise of a business meeting to Weinstein’s hotel room, where she says he proceeded to demand a naked massage.After telling Weinstein, “That’s not going to happen,” Barth says she left the room and started crying uncontrollably.Barth’s former director and co-star for her appearances in the Ted films, Seth MacFarlane, took to Twitter today to explain a joke he made about Weinstein when the actor hosted the Oscars in 2013.After listing off the nominees in the supporting actress category that year, MacFarlane said, “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.”Wednesday, he elaborated, writing, “In 2011, my friend and colleague Jessica Barth, with whom I worked on the Ted films, confided in me regarding her encounter with Harvey Weinstein and his attempted advances.”Barth played Ted’s wife Tami-Lynn in the two adult comedies.“She has since courageously come forward to speak out,” MacFarlane added. “It was this account in mind that, when I hosted the Oscars in 2013, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a hard swing in his direction. Make no mistake, this came from a place of loathing and anger. There is nothing more abhorrent and indefensible than abuse of power such as this.”In response to the women who spoke out on Tuesday, a spokesperson for the movie executive told The New Yorker: “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”“Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual,” according to the full statement from Weinstein’s spokesperson. “Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path. Mr. Weinstein is hoping that, if he makes enough progress, he will be given a second chance.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico
I’m hanging up the skates! I am proud of the career I was able to put together and couldn’t be more grateful of all the support I received along the way. I am excited for my next chapter and all the challenges that are to come. Now let’s hunt!#timetohunt #nextchapter #retirement pic.twitter.com/kUrLSe8o7U— Eric Gryba (@grybes02) September 23, 2019The 31-year-old Gryba was a third-round draft pick of the Senators in 2006 and played in parts of seven seasons for the Senators, Oilers and Devils. Gryba split time during the 2018-19 season between New Jersey’s NHL and AHL clubs and skated in just 10 big-league contests. He scored seven goals and added 36 assists over 289 career games.After spending so much time inside ice rinks and hockey arenas, Gryba said he will turn to an outdoor hobby in retirement.“Everything’s got to come to an end,” Gryba said in the video, “and now I’m excited to do a lot more hunting, so follow along. It’s going to be fun.” The Saskatoon, Sask., native signed a professional tryout with the Flames prior to training camp, but the club released him on Sept. 20. Veteran NHL defenseman Eric Gryba announced his retirement Sunday in a video posted to his Twitter account.”Hey, guys, I just wanted to give you all a heads up that I am retiring from professional hockey,” Gryba said. “It’s been a lot of great years and a lot of great memories, but the body is starting to fail a little bit and I feel it’s just time to move on to the next chapter of my life.”
If ever there was a movie that needed a window to be opened, a blast of fresh air to be let in, it’s Jason Reitman’s “Men, Women & Children.”The film, adapted from Chad Kultgen’s novel, is about dreary faces in front of digital screens. A grim overview of the way the Internet, smartphones, sexting and all manner of cyber evils are corrupting our waking hours, “Men, Women & Children” makes “Frontline” look like a laugh riot by comparison.Reitman’s suburban tale artfully weaves a handful of overlapping stories of lonely teenagers and their lonely parents in small town Texas, all of whom are unable to summon a smile in the two hours of this dour, downbeat melodrama.Among them: a paranoid mom (Jennifer Garner) obsessively monitoring her daughter’s (Kaitlyn Dever) phone and PC; a sexless couple (Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt) exploring extramarital partners online; an anorexic high-school girl (Elena Kampouris) encouraged not to eat by chat-room supporters; a single-father (Dean Norris) watching over his video-game devoted son (Ansel Elgort); a perpetually videotaping mother (the always excellent Judy Greer) trying to help her attractive daughter (Olivia Crocicchia) become a movie star.A narrator (Emma Thompson) opens the film with an arch, omniscient tone, looking down from space at human civilization. It’s an anthropological perspective that worked for “The God’s Must Be Crazy,” and a better, alternative “Men, Women & Children” might have chronicled the farce of our jumbled digital lives.But Reitman, whose irreverent, whip-smart knack for personal foibles worked best in “Juno” and “Young Adult,” has instead made a resolutely glum movie — a “Crash” with clicks. He has a gift for finding empathy in the most unlikely of characters — the professional jerk of “Up in the Air,” the runaway convict of his last film, the disappointing “Labor Day” — and that generosity marks each character of “Men, Women & Children” with understanding.No, the villain here is technology and its unnatural dominance on modern life. Reitman deserves credit for trying to tackle it; how digital technology has woven itself into our lives — shaping and distorting them — is a subject that any filmmaker, any artist, ought to be contemplating.And there are many smartly observed scenes here that capture familiar glimpses of today’s technology interactions: a more honest commentary by text message during a politely superficial conversation; the typing of a personal Facebook message and then its quick edit with a more banal replacement.It’s not an altogether negative portrait of the Internet. One girl, for instance, finds true expression on a secret Tumblr page. The film — ambitious to be sure — strives to show how we are mirrored by the many screens that people our lives.The scenes of budding, awkward-at-first friendship between Elgort’s gamer loner and Dever’s teenager are the movie’s most effecting. But the plotline, just like the rest of the movie (written by Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson), veers toward the extreme, hammering home the film’s heavy histrionics.How are the movies to deal with these virtual worlds that now fill so much of our lives? Some, like “Men, Women & Children” or last year’s “Fruitvale Station,” let text bubbles pop up on the screen. Others treat computers like mere apparatus for drama, no different than the guitars in a rock band (“The Social Network”). Probably the most vibrant thread of digital-age cinema has, in futuristic sci-fi tales, uploaded into the strange new worlds (“Avatar,” ”The Matrix,” ”Her,” the recent “The Congress”).As a glitch like “Men, Women and Children” makes clear, it’s an ongoing struggle.“Men, Women & Children,” a Paramount Pictures release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America “strong sexual content, including graphic dialogue throughout — some involving teens — and for language.” Running time: 119 minutes. Two stars out of four.MPAA definition of R: Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
“Zinedine Zidane will manage Castilla next season. Zizou, who was Carlo Ancelotti’s first squad assistant coach this year, will start a new stage of his career at Real Madrid. Zidane will be joined by youth coach Santiago Sánchez and has already started working on future plans for the reserve team squad.” The former French international won the World Cup with France in 1998 and is widely regarded as one of the best players of all time after a playing career which involved spells with Real Madrid and Juventus.
