Former Rutgers QB Ryan Hart Calls Out Kyle Flood’s Decision To Switch Quarterbacks At Halftime

first_imgRutgers is in control of its season opener today, leading FCS Norfolk State 42-13 in the third quarter in Piscataway. It’s been a rough week for the Scarlet Knights, with five players arrested and later dismissed, and four more players suspended for the first half of today’s game. One of the players punished for the first half was quarterback Chris Laviano, who spent the entire off-season in a battle for the starting job with LSU transfer Hayden Rettig. Laviano’s suspension, for breaking curfew and using a fake ID, made Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood’s decision easy, as Rettig started this afternoon and played well in the first half. He completed 9-of-11 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown and rushed for another score. Somewhat surprisingly, Flood elected to begin the second half with Laviano under center. It’s a choice that seems to indicate Laviano originally won the competition and Rettig only started because of circumstance. Or maybe Flood just wanted give both guys a shot. Whatever the reasoning, former Rutgers quarterback Ryan Hart was not happy with the move.  hart tweetsTwitter/ @RyanHart13Hart played for the Scarlet Knights from 2002-05. During his senior season, Flood was an assistant under Greg Schiano. He subsequently tweeted that he still supported the embattled coach despite the decision, but he clearly did not approve of it.For what it’s worth, Laviano has connected with wide receiver Leonte Carroo for a pair of third-quarter touchdowns. Looks like there could be a QB controversy in New Jersey.last_img read more

By the numbers Ohio State starts slow finishes strong against Maryland

Redshirt sophomore defensive end Tyquan Lewis (59) drags down Maryland redshirt junior quarterback Perry Hills on Oct. 10. OSU won 49-28. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorOhio State started slow once again but scored 28 unanswered points in the second half to put away the Maryland Terrapins, 49-28, in Columbus.Maryland’s offense, after getting shut out at home the previous week to a streaking Michigan team, got on the board first after redshirt junior quarterback Perry Hills fired a 52-yard touchdown pass. The Buckeye defense, which had bailed the team out from several close calls already this season, gave up a season-high 28 points, as well as 386 yards of offense.The Terps put up a valiant effort throughout the game, going so far as to even the score at 21 in the third quarter before the cracks began to widen. Two key interceptions in the fourth quarter helped end a potential comeback from Maryland, which leads the nation in interceptions thrown.Despite defensive struggles, the biggest takeaway from Saturday’s game was the OSU offense, which in the second half finally began to play to its potential. OSU coach Urban Meyer used redshirt junior quarterback Cardale Jones to start drives and let redshirt sophomore J.T. Barrett finish them inside the red zone.This system proved effective, as both quarterbacks looked sharp throughout most of the game. Jones completed 75 percent of his passes (21-of-28) for 291 yards and two touchdowns, while Barrett added three rushing touchdowns and 62 yards on the ground to help lead the Buckeye offense to an impressive 499 yards of total offense and 31 first downs.Junior running back Ezekiel Elliott pounded away 106 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries to lead the rushing attack, while redshirt senior H-back Braxton Miller (79 yards, one touchdown), redshirt sophomore H-back Jalin Marshall (78 yards, one touchdown) and redshirt junior receiver Michael Thomas (107 yards) put up impressive performances for the receiving corps. Redshirt junior safety Tyvis Powell and redshirt freshman defensive end Sam Hubbard both added interceptions for the defense.Maryland put up arguably its best game of the season in the loss, mostly thanks to its quarterback. Hills, after not playing for the last three weeks, put up 133 yards and a score through the air while rushing for 170 yards and two more touchdowns on the ground, as he was responsible for three of the four Maryland touchdowns. By the numbers:0: Arguably the most important number of all, as OSU’s offense didn’t have a turnover for the first time since facing off against Hawaii in Week 2.17: The number of interceptions thrown by Maryland quarterbacks this season, the most in the nation.2-0: OSU’s all-time record against Maryland.21: OSU’s margin of victory over the Terps, the same amount that Mid-American Conference team Bowling Green beat Maryland by earlier this season.11: Elliott has pounded away at least 100 yards for 11 consecutive games.26: OSU’s current regular-season conference winning streak, the longest in Big Ten history.-2: The Buckeyes’ current turnover margin for the season, as they have turned the ball over 13 times in six games compared to forcing 11 turnovers from opponents. 102: The numbers of weeks OSU has been ranked No. 1 in the AP poll after the Week 7 rankings were released on Sunday, which is the most of any college football team (Oklahoma is second at 101). read more

Former Buckeye Mike Vrabel reported to be returning to Ohio State as

Ohio State appears to have found a new linebackers coach in former Buckeye and Super Bowl champion Mike Vrabel. Multiple media outlets have reported Vrabel’s hiring by OSU. According to the university’s online directory, Vrabel’s working title is “Assistant Coach-Football.” In an email to The Lantern, Jerry Emig, assistant athletics communication director, said the athletic department was working Sunday on details regarding a press conference. Emig added that OSU has not “announced an (assistant) coach hire yet.” Emig also said the athletic department would release details on an upcoming press conference shortly, though he did not address what the purpose of the press conference would be. Vrabel, a former defensive end at OSU from 1993–96, was the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year during both the 1995 and 1996 seasons. During his college playing days, Vrabel was also a defensive line mate with new OSU head coach Luke Fickell — Vrabel was a defensive end while Fickell played nose guard. Vrabel was drafted in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and spent his first four years as a professional there. Vrabel was later traded to the New England Patriots where he became a force on both sides of the ball. In short-yardage situations, Patriots coach Bill Belichick used Vrabel as a tight end. In his eight years with the Patriots, Vrabel, who typically played linebacker, had 10 receptions, all for touchdowns. During his time in at New England, Vrabel won three Super Bowl and also appeared in the 2007 Pro Bowl. Vrabel was then traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009, where he is still under contract. Media outlets have reported that multiple sources close to Vrabel expect the former Buckeye to retire from the NFL and accept the coaching position at OSU. The Kansas City Chiefs did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on Vrabel’s status with the organization. Vrabel would be coming to OSU after a recent run-in with law enforcement. On April 5, Vrabel was arrested for theft at an Indiana casino and was released later that day after posting bond. Vrabel called the arrest an “unfortunate misunderstanding.” More recently, Vrabel has been a vocal member of the NFL Players Association and is one of 10 players involved in the antitrust lawsuit against the NFL. Vrabel could not be reached for comment. read more

He must remain calm, he should apologise and assume his responsibilities.“He has to put aside his nervousness, he is the most important player we have and he has to make the difference.

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Residents of the Kenai Peninsula testified at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting on Tuesday following a recent ruling by the Alaska Supreme Court that the current prayer policy violates the State Constitution. Keith: “On behalf of many faith based groups, churches, and individuals I believe the most recent policy in giving invocations is credible and meets the first amendment clause correctly.”  Ed Jr.: “I believe that this assembly, and many of us in this room need prayer. Now, there are some in this room that may not welcome it, and we as prayer givers should accept that fact that we must have come tolerance.” Borough Attorney Colette Thompson said it’s now up to the assembly on whether to appeal the most recent ruling.center_img Something some community members believe is a waste of borough resources. Bob: “I’m requesting those of you on the assembly, or the mayor, I’d like to know how much has been spent from inception to current.

Legislative Black Caucus Hosts Town Hall Meeting

first_imgLawmakers from Baltimore and surrounding counties who attended the final Town Hall sponsored by the Maryland Legislative Black Caucus (LBC) were still reeling from U.S. District Court Judge James K. Bredar’s recent decision to ignore the preference of the Baltimore community members by instead appointing a “combined team” of individuals to serve as the independent monitor for Baltimore’s consent decree with the federal department of justice.  State Sen. Joan Carter Conway said the lawmakers are weighing their options and deciding how best to intervene.     “The Caucus will monitor this issue and make it one of our priorities,” said Del. Curt Anderson, chair of the Baltimore City Delegation (Baltimore-43). “A federal judge doesn’t have that ability [to appoint a team] not being representative of the people of Baltimore,” Anderson said to the room of 200 city and county residents.  With respect to other LBC priorities, Del. Cheryl Glenn (Baltimore-45), LBC chair, said she has made it clear to Attorney General Brian Frosh that the HBCU equity trial must run its course when Judge Catherine E. Blake makes her final ruling in the remedial phase of the trial, expected at any time. “We’ve spoken to the Attorney General’s Office and let them know that we want this case settled. We will not tolerate an appeal of this case,” Glenn said.  Glenn said the LBC stands ready to intervene if the state makes any movement toward appealing the final outcome of the 10-year-old lawsuit brought by alumni, students and supporters of Maryland’s four HBCU’s that alleges widespread continuing discrimination in the state’s higher education system. The LBC reported on the group’s leadership in passing legislation during the 2017 session to protect Maryland residents against prescription price gouging. Del. Mary Washington (Baltimore-43) reported on the legislation preventing suspension and expulsion of young children from public schools passed in March 2017.  “It wasn’t easy, but we had to draw a line when it came to suspending our youngest children,” Washington said. Anderson said bail reform is still on the table for the 2018 session and admitted the LBC was not united in their views on eliminating excessive bail for minor offenses. “It was a rather contentious issue that we tried to resolve this legislative session,” he said.Glenn vowed that the General Assembly would act in early 2018 on her legislation to ensure minority participation in the state’s nascent cannabis industry. “We’re asking that this legislation become Senate Bill 1 and House Bill 1 and that this legislation will be passed as emergency legislation at the beginning of the session,” she said. “You will know.”last_img read more
