Former Syracuse football offensive coordinator Tim Lester named quarterbacks coach at Purdue

first_imgFormer Syracuse offensive coordinator Tim Lester has been named Purdue’s next quarterbacks coach, according to a release.Lester served as the Orange’s quarterbacks coach from 2013 until his firing at the end of this past season. He was promoted to offensive coordinator five games into the 2014 season when previous offensive coordinator George McDonald was demoted to wide receivers coach. Lester continued working with the quarterbacks after his promotion.In his first full season as SU’s offensive coordinator, Lester introduced the hybrid position, which provided an extra dimension to Syracuse’s offense. He also juggled an injury situation that forced SU to play four different quarterbacks. The Orange averaged 27.2 points and 319.9 yards per game in 2015 with 15 rushing touchdowns and 19 passing touchdowns.Sean Lewis and Mike Lynch will replace Lester as co-offensive coordinators under newly hired head coach Dino Babers.

Lionel Messi mocked for scruffy appearance in Gabon

first_imgLionel Messi has been ridiculed for wearing ripped denim shorts and a t-shirt during a high-profile visit to Gabon.The Barcelona star was asked to visit the West African state by the president as a symbolic gesture at the site of a new football stadium in the city of Port-Gentil.The Argentina striker, who has won the Ballon d’Or four times in his career to mark his status as the best footballer in the world, arrived in torn denim shorts and a t-shirt to meet a delegation of officials.Joined by former Barcelona star Deco, Messi lay the first stone on the construction site for the new stadium – something which president Ali Bongo was delighted to take credit for.”When I was in Barcelona a few years ago, I met Messi who had told me that he would come to visit me in Libreville,” said President Bongo.”It’s a promise he had made me and he is a man of honour, who just kept his word.” While Messi’s appearance made him the figure of fun for many, there were some who felt it showed a poor attitude towards Gabon for what was a big event. –last_img read more

first_imgPosition players dominated the top of the draft, making up nine of the first 10 selections. Nick Lodolo (Reds) was the lone pitcher taken in the top 10.In truth, it will be difficult to judge how teams do in this draft for several years. After all, players from the 2016 MLB Draft are only just now starting to arrive at the big league level. Nonetheless. people will be quick to make assessments.

Lonzo Ball reacts to being traded from Lakers to Pelicans

first_imgBall was originally selected by the Lakers out of UCLA with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft.Hart also addressed the deal in a social media post one day earlier.”I want to thank the Laker organization, Jeanie Buss & Magic Johnson for taking a chance on me & believing in me,” Hart wrote. “To my teammates thank you for teaching me how to play & grow in this league. To the fans….THANK YOU! Thank you for embracing me and for supporting me through all the ups and downs! One of the best fan bases in the league. It was a dream come true to wear the purple and gold! It’s always love on this side but now N.O ‘Let’s dance.'” …through all the ups and downs! One of the best fan bases in the league. It was a dream come true to wear the purple and gold! It’s always love on this side 💜💛 but now N.O. “Let’s dance”— Josh Hart (@joshhart) June 22, 2019The Pelicans underwent a major roster overhaul this month. In addition to the Davis deal, they selected Zion Williamson with the top pick in the 2019 draft.They also added Jaxson Hayes, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Marcos Louzada Silva in the draft, as well. Lakers rumors: Los Angeles didn’t make having cap space for third star a priority in Anthony Davis trade Three things the Lakers need to be successful in 2019-20 Lonzo Ball has weighed in on being traded.The 21-year-old guard ⁠— along with Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks — was sent from the Lakers to the Pelicans earlier this month in exchange for Anthony Davis. Ball discussed the deal in a video shared on social media. “You probably heard the news, it’s good news in my opinion,” Ball said in the video. “(Younger brother) ’Melo had a game today, he did good. … I got traded, that was good. And yeah, now we’re going to be taking the show to New Orleans and turning up out there. So, until next time, ciao.”Lonzo Ball is happy he was traded. pic.twitter.com/uNX5YelRJJ— The Render (@TheRenderNBA) June 24, 2019Ball struggled with an ankle injury and was limited to just 47 games last season. He averaged 9.9 points and 5.4 assists while shooting 32.9% from 3-point range. Related News D’Angelo Russell free agency rumors: Guard ‘may be open to’ returning to Lakerslast_img read more

It was formerly called Lions Club Park.“As the story of this family of foxes was told I became a little concerned hearing that we have several Wellington citizens feeding the foxes,” said Tracy Heath, Wellington Police Chief. “According to the report, as the feeding has progressed, the baby foxes have lost some of their fear toward people.”By feeding the foxes humans could be causing more harm than good, overfeeding to the point where they forget to forage naturally or feeding food that isn’t good for them, Heath said.Feeding wildlife could lead to negative interactions with people, he said.“I would like to take this opportunity to remind citizens the foxes are wild animals and not to feed them,” Heath said. “We certainly don’t want them to become a nuisance.  Should the feeding continue the city would have no choice but to relocate the foxes.”last_img read more

History man Nadal sweeps to ‘incredible’ 12th French Open and 18th Grand Slam title

first_imgParis, France | AFP | Rafael Nadal swept to an historic 12th Roland Garros title and 18th Grand Slam crown on Sunday with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Austria’s Dominic Thiem.The 33-year-old Spaniard becomes the first player, man or woman, to win the same Slam 12 times after seeing off a brave challenge from a weary Thiem in a repeat of the 2018 final.Nadal is now just two behind Roger Federer’s all-time record of 20 majors and three ahead of Novak Djokovic who was knocked out by Thiem in the semi-finals.The world number two also took his Paris record to an astonishing 93 wins and just two losses having previously won the title in 2005-2008, 2010-2014, 2017 and 2018.“I want to say congratulations to Dominic. I feel sorry as he deserves to win it as well,” said Nadal.“But he has every chance in the future. He has unbelievable talent for the sport and I want to encourage him for the future.“It’s a dream to win again, an incredible moment. When I first played here in 2005 I never thought I would be still playing here in 2019.“It’s very special for me.”Sunday’s triumph confirmed the ‘Big Three’ stranglehold on the Grand Slams having shared the last 10 between them.It also gave Nadal an 82nd career title and 950th match win.“It’s very tough. I gave everything these last two weeks,” said Thiem, who had seven fewer winners and seven more unforced errors in the final.“Rafa, well done. You are an amazing champion and a legend in our sport.“I am happy that you are playing. To win 12 times, it’s unreal. I will try again, for sure.”Thiem would have felt confident going into the final having beaten Nadal on clay on his way to the title in Barcelona in April.But with the exception of defeats to Robin Soderling in 2009 and Djokovic in 2016, the outcome of this year’s tournament was brutally familiar. “I am sorry as you are one of the best examples on tour,” added Nadal.“You are a hard worker, always have a smile on your face and are a good person. That’s the most important thing.“Thanks for being a great inspiration for me and small kids around the world.– ‘You’ll win it one day’ –“If I wanted to lose to someone it would be you because you deserve it. Well done and keep going — you will win this for sure.”In a 53-minute first set of brutal hitting and raw physicality, it was Thiem who broke first for a 3-2 lead.But the 25-year-old’s joy was short-lived as Nadal retrieved the break in the sixth game before racing away with the next three games to pocket the opener.Thiem, who had beaten his opponent four times on clay in his career, failed to claim a single point off Nadal’s first five service games of the second set.However, the dogged Austrian pushed and pushed, forced Nadal into three rushed groundstrokes and, from nowhere, broke to take the second set.It was the first set he had managed to take off Nadal at Roland Garros after three previous defeats.Nadal was riled by the insult.He swept the first 10 points of the third set, carving out a double break for 3-0 before sweeping to a third break for the set.Thiem, bidding to become just Austria’s second Grand Slam champion after Thomas Muster won in Paris in 1995, had played four successive days to reach Sunday’s final and the toll was slowly telling.He wasted break points in the first and third games of the fourth set and Nadal pounced to stretch to 3-0.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
