Conrad: “Touching the ball is good”LEXINGTON, Ky. – A funny thing happened Saturday night when Kentucky got two veteran linebackers back in the starting lineup: the Wildcats’ defense looked crisper, faster and more disruptive. They gave up just one touchdown in a 21-13 win over two-time defending SEC East champion Missouri.In case anyone had forgotten just how important junior outside linebacker Jason Hatcher and senior inside linebacker Ryan Flannigan are, their 16 combined tackles against the Tigers served as a strong reminder. They helped pressure quarterback Maty Mauk into errant throws and run down Missouri’s running backs, who gained just 66 yards on 20 carries.“It’s good to have them back,” defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot said. “They both bring a lot of speed to the game.”UK makes statement with win over No. 25 MizzouHatcher, a Trinity High alum, was a constant presence. He had eight tackles, one for loss, a quarterback hurry and a leaping pass breakup at the line of scrimmage. It was his second game back but first start — and biggest impact — after a two-game suspension for an undisclosed violation of team rules.“Last week, it was just a little here and there,” Hatcher said, “but this week I started the game and was able to make a few plays out there, so I feel like I’m back.”UK expected a breakout year from the 6-foot-3, 252-pound former four-star recruit who picked the Cats over Southern California in coach Mark Stoops’ first recruiting class. He’d made steady progress in two seasons playing behind first-round pick Bud Dupree and after starting the season on the shelf, Hatcher felt he owed the team a performance like Saturday’s.“But it isn’t enough,” he said. “I got a lot more in the tank that I can give for the guys. They made a lot of big plays while I was out, so I got a lot of making up to do.”Instant Analysis | Kentucky vs. MissouriFlannigan’s absence was out of his control. Another expected impact player, he missed the first three games of this season with a shoulder injury he suffered during a practice collision with 330-pound defensive tackle/fullback Jacob Hyde back on Aug. 11. He wasn’t in pain for most of his extended absence; it was just a waiting game for the strength in that shoulder to return.The 6-foot-2, 225-pound former junior-college transfer looked strong and healthy against Missouri. He recorded eight tackles, a quarterback hurry and two pass breakups — although he dropped a potential interception on one of those. Afterward, Flannigan couldn’t stop smiling.“You could tell all week in practice. He practiced real hard, did a lot of extra stuff,” Hatcher said. “Having him out there just means a lot to our team. He just really has a nose for the ball and he’s fast. He’s all over the place and can make plays, other than dropping that pick. We’re gonna have to work on that.”Flannigan vowed to join UK’s wide receivers in pass-catching drills this week so he doesn’t drop the next one, but even that couldn’t put a damper on his triumphant comeback. The Texas native only has two seasons to shine for the Cats, and last year was hampered by his late arrival to preseason camp.Starting this year on the sideline was maddening, and the relief of his return was evident.“I was just happy to be out there,” said Flannigan, who had to take himself out a few times after running himself right out of breath, “and everything was just coming out of me all at once.”His and Hatcher’s excitement over their first start of 2015 rubbed off on their teammates.“We felt a lot of energy when Hatch finally came back and when Flan came back,” freshman linebacker Denzil Ware said. “It was a lot of energy and we had a lot more confidence.”A good bit more talent, too, most importantly. Kentucky’s defense is now close to full strength and appears to be hitting its stride, allowing an average of just 291 yards and 13.5 points the last two weeks. The Cats head into their next game against Eastern Kentucky with a chance to be 4-1 when Auburn comes to town on Oct. 15.“We need guys to win some one-on-ones and get some pressures at times and some sacks,” Stoops said, “so I think having Jason back and having Ryan back, it was certainly helpful.”Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361.

LSU’s Les Miles remains coy about backup quarterback

first_imgBATON ROUGE – No definitive news is good news as far as those in the growing camp of LSU backup quarterback Brandon Harris are concerned.“I would want to assess this week fully before I commented on that,” LSU coach Les Miles said Monday when asked if he would be surprised if Harris did not play in the Tigers’ regular season finale Thursday night at Texas A&M. “But again, I like how he’s improved.”Miles has only practices Monday and Tuesday to finalize his decision on whether or not he will insert Harris in a game for significant playing time since he started the only game of his career in a 41-7 loss at Auburn on Oct. 4. LSU (7-4, 3-4 SEC) and Texas A&M (7-4, 3-4 SEC) kick off at 6:30 p.m. Thursday on ESPN in College Station, Texas.“I would suggest that he’s improved, that he continues to improve,” Miles said of Harris.The Tigers practiced only on Wednesday and Thursday of last week after losing their last game, 17-0, at Arkansas on Nov. 15. The Tigers were open on Saturday. Starting quarterback Anthony Jennings continued to struggle at Arkansas as he completed 12 of 22 passes for 87 yards, and the Tigers were held to their lowest total offense output since 1975 with 123 yards. Jennings is 13th in the Southeastern Conference and 83rd nationally in passing efficiency with a 116.3 mark.“Quarterback is going to have to play better, but the key is making the 10 players around you best and the opportunity to do the things that we do that allows us to win,” Miles said in his opening statement. “Both guys are getting better, and again Brandon Harris is getting better.”Miles also continues to be asked about a possible return to his alma mater every year that a coaching change appears near at Michigan, which is the case at the moment as fourth-year coach Brady Hoke’s team is 5-6 on the season after a 23-16 loss at home to Maryland on Saturday. Miles was offered the job after the 2010 season when Michigan was replacing Rich Rodriguez. He turned it down during an interview in Baton Rouge with Michigan officials and supporters, according to then-LSU athletic director Skip Bertman and Board of Supervisors member Stanley Jacobs at the time. Michigan soon hired Hoke.Miles, who played offensive guard at Michigan in the early 1970s for the late Bo Schembechler and later coached under him and under his replacement Gary Moeller in the 1980s, was considered for the Michigan job late in the 2007 season before taking his name out. And Michigan later hired Rodriguez to replace the retiring Lloyd Carr.“I have given little or no thought to any other jobs,” Miles said when asked if he expects to again hear from Michigan officials or those close to the Michigan program this year. “I am so comfortable with my team and doing what I’m doing. I do not read the paper. I certainly respect and love Michigan and wish them the very best.”Asked if he takes Michigan interest as a compliment, Miles said, “I don’t really look at it as a compliment or not. I just kind of enjoy going to work and getting it done.”Miles is trying to snap just the second two-game losing streak in his 10 seasons at LSU. The Tigers last won a game on Oct. 25 — 10-7 over then No. 3 Ole Miss in Tiger Stadium.“I can tell you that there is some wearing on the program certainly,” he said. “But I can tell you that everybody is handling it in a very straightforward manner. They’re working hard at it. They’re enjoying practice. We have lost games, and I think our guys understand the things they need to do to get that feeling back. The room in which I operate is full of real quality, character people, and they are looking forward to achieving. We want to be known as a team that continued to get better and a team that finishes the season in a completely correct way.” LSU AT TEXAS A&M Thursday, 6:30 p.m.TV: ESPN Radio: 1130 AMlast_img read more

Fournette did his best Herschel Walker against Texas A&M

first_imgCOLLEGE STATION, Texas The comparison was made immediately by more than one media member in the press box.LSU tailback Leonard Fournette’s powerful, 22-yard touchdown run in the second quarter of the Tigers’ 23-17 victory at Texas A&M Thursday night was strikingly similar to a 16-yard touchdown run by Herschel Walker at Tennessee on Sept. 6, 1980.The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Fournette steamrolled 6-2, 210-pound A&M safety Howard Matthews, who was in a perfect crouched and set position to tackle the freshman from St. Augustine High in New Orleans. Matthews hit Fournette low, but Fournette’s driving thighs just pummeled him, placing him right on his rear.The 6-1, 225-pound Walker did the same thing to 6-1, 213-pound Tennessee safety Bill Bates after breaking a previous tackle in a 16-15 win at Tennessee in 1980.“My God almighty, he ran right through two men,” the late Georgia play-by-play announcer Larry Munson said in his call of that play. “They had him dead away inside the 9. Herschel Walker went 16 yards, just driving and running with those big thighs. My God — a freshman!”Walker would win the Heisman Trophy two years later after the 1982 season. Fournette has said he will win the Heisman.“It felt great,” Fournette said of the play. “My coach (running backs coach Frank Wilson) kept telling me to try and make one person miss. I tried to the best of my ability to make him miss.”Matthews, a physical player and three-year starter who is expected to be picked in the middle to late rounds of the 2015 NFL Draft, did not miss Fournette. He just got trampled by him to tie the game 7-7 with 4:33 to go in the second quarter.LSU coach Les Miles suggested a baseball strategy for those trying to tackle Fournette in such situations when he has a full head of steam and charging thighs. “I would tackle him low and away,” he said.Fournette added a more shifty and finesse-filled, 46-yard jaunt in the fourth quarter to set up a 43-yard field goal by Colby Delahoussaye for the 23-17 lead with 2:07 to play. Fournette finished with 146 yards on 19 carries — his fourth 100-yard game of the season.“We blocked well,” Miles said. “There was an opportunity on those carries.”LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings added 119 yards on 14 carries — most of which were designed runs. The last LSU quarterback to gain that many yards in a game was Carl Otis Trimble in the mid-1970s. The Tigers, who completed the regular season at 8-4 overall and 4-4 in the Southeastern Conference, totaled 384 yards on the ground — their largest total in an SEC game since getting 400 in a 63-28 win at Kentucky in 1997.Jennings completed 12 of 21 passes for 107 yards with an interception and a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver John Diarse to put LSU up 14-7 with 34 seconds to go in the first half.“He threw the ball well at practice last week, so I knew it was going to be a great game for him,” Fournette said. “But I didn’t know he was going to come out rushing the ball like that. That was surprising.”The designed running plays for Jennings and putting wide receiver Travin Dural in motion often and using him on jet sweeps – or end arounds — were new ploys by LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Dural rushed four times for 49 yards.“We had some different wrinkles on offense, and I thought that certainly helped things,” Miles said.“I think we had more balance on offense,” Jennings said. “The offensive line did a great job of run blocking. And this was one of the best games I’ve played — minus a few mistakes.”But it all started with Fournette and Matthews.“I would get out of his way,” Miles said.MILES LAMENTS NOT USING HARRIS: LSU coach Les Miles said he planned on playing backup quarterback Brandon Harris at Texas A&M, but starting quarterback Anthony Jennings played the whole game.“I have to be honest with you,” Miles said. “I wanted to get Brandon Harris in this game. That was a personal piece for me. I want you to know, I wanted to get that done. That was a mistake.”last_img read more

New club joins queue for West Ham player – Manager has…

first_imgRecently leaving Sampdoria, Walter Sabatini is expected to become Bologna’s new director of football, and he could already have a few players to deal with. One of them, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, could be West Ham’s Pedro Obiang, adding yet another club to the long list of interested sides in Italy trying to bring the midfielder back to Serie A.The aforementioned Sampdoria did their best last summer, to no avail, as did Fiorentina in January, which also failed.The latest were Roma, around the same time discussions were taking place to hire Paulo Fonseca as manager (he’s now been appointed), but that story appears to have been put to one side for now.Embed from Getty ImagesFor the West Ham player, a move to a new club is probably best, allowing him to get more time than the 1121 minutes (just over 12 full games) he got in the Premier League last season under Manuel Pellegrini.As for the Hammers, if they can make some money back on the £5.4m they spent on the now 27-year-old, they will probably be happy to take it.Obiang is said to be ‘valued’ by the club, which corroborates claims from Il Resto di Carlino from late last week (it slipped through our net), relayed by 1000Cuorirossoblu, that Sinisa Mihajlovic wouldn’t mind working with the Equatorial Guinea international again, having already done so at Sampdoria.All in all, this makes a bit more sense than a move to Roma where a guaranteed first-team spot would be hard to come by.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy 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.asiaUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoPerfect-Dating.comThousands of successful men are looking for women in Tung ChungPerfect-Dating.comUndoDating.comTung Chung is actually full of single men.
