Through the rain and a quarterback change, Minnesota falls short against No. 21 Michigan State

first_imgAfter only six points scored through the first half, quarterback Conor Rhoda was benched. Croft hadn’t played since the second game of the season against Oregon State.The Gophers depleted defense saw one piece of good news, however, when safety Duke McGhee returned from a suspension. He missed the first two conference games of the season. The senior made an impact early in the game with his first interception of the season, which resulted in the Gophers getting three points from a field goal.“Practicing and playing in a game – two different things,” Fleck said. “I thought there were times I was like ‘there’s Duke’, then there were times like ‘oh man, he’s really rusty.’”McGhee was a highlight on the pass defense, but the run defense that struggled against the Spartans.The Gophers gave up 245 rushing yards in the game. The team held Michigan State to just 120 passing yards.The season as a whole, not including against Michigan State, Minnesota had only allowed 571 yards on the ground, but 1,001 yards through the air.Minnesota was involved in its second consecutive weather delay Saturday.After being delayed nearly 90 minutes in the fourth quarter against Purdue, the Gophers had to postpone kickoff until 7:44 pm, a delay of 34 minutes.“It’s right now that matters,” Fleck said. “That’s the only thing we’re going to focus on. We’re going to take it one game at a time, [and] we’re going to grow.” Through the rain and a quarterback change, Minnesota falls short against No. 21 Michigan StateQuarterback Conor Rhoda was benched in favor of Demry Croft during the second quarter.Ellen SchmidtWide receiver Mark Williams shows excitement after a Gophers first down during the game against Michigan State on Saturday, Oct. 14 at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The Spartans beat the Gophers 30-27.  Drew CoveOctober 16, 2017Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintWorried about losing three straight conference games, the Gophers put in backup quarterback Demry Croft late in the second quarter against No. 21 Michigan State.Croft found his rhythm in the fourth quarter and connected on three touchdown passes, but that wasn’t enough for a victory in the rain on Saturday night.The Spartans (5-1, 3-0 Big Ten) recovered an onside kick with just over a minute remaining and ran out the clock to beat Minnesota (3-3, 0-3 Big Ten)30-27 at TCF Bank Stadium.“They did what Michigan State does — they run the ball,” said head coach P.J. Fleck. “This is all 100 percent my fault. [It] all falls on my shoulders.”While they didn’t manage to come back and win, the Gophers found new life against the usually stingy Michigan State defense later in the game, and scored 21 points in the fourth quarter.Michigan State’s defense held Minnesota to 290 total yards. While the Gophers had 216 passing yards, they only had 74 rushing yards, and 51 of those from the tandem of running backs Rodney Smith and Shannon Brooks.Minnesota, at one point down 30-13, pulled to within three points in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t finish the comeback.Throughout the comeback, Gophers wide receiver Tyler Johnson found his way to the stat sheet again. He had three second half touchdowns and finished with eight receptions for 106 yards.“I would say our preparation this week was key,” Johnson said. “We knew going into the game that it was going to be different types of matchups that would be played out in the game.”Most of the passes came from Croft after he entered the game.last_img read more

LSU’s Jalen Mills set to return

first_imgLSU safety Jalen Mills is expected to return to the field for the first time on Saturday against Florida.LSU safety Jalen Mills is expected to return to the field for the first time on Saturday against Florida.BATON ROUGE – LSU senior free safety Jalen Mills is expected to play for the first time this season on Saturday against Florida after missing the first five games of the season with an injured ankle, LSU coach Les Miles said after practice Wednesday night.“Jalen Mills practiced the whole week,” Miles said. “He was pretty good. I’d be surprised if he didn’t play. The thing is, he was never in a cast, constantly working out everything he could work out while rehabilitating his leg. I think he’ll see the field.”Mills, a native of DeSoto, Texas, injured his ankle just days before the scheduled season opener against McNeese State on Sept. 5, but that game was cancelled due to weather. He is a three-year starter, having started at cornerback in 2012 and ’13 and at safety last season.“He gives you experience, the ability to make checks, comfortable with adjustments,” Miles said. “We’re going to keep an eye on him certainly, making sure. It’s hard for me to figure anything but a real quality performance. He won’t be playing at mid-season form but I can’ imagine he won’t be playing very well.”Junior Rickey Jefferson has been starting in Mills’ place at free safety and has played very well. He is third on the team with 25 tackles and has three pass breakups.“He’s back,” Jefferson said. “I think he’ll be ready. It’s good to have a guy like that back on the field – somebody you can count on. We’re looking forward to see what he does, honestly. I play my part. I’ve never been a selfish teammate even if situations do happen to where I’m not on the field as much or at all, really, I’ll be all right. I’ll keep working hard.”OTHER STARTERS RETURNING: Miles also expects two other injured starters to return to action when the No. 6 Tigers (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) host No. 8 Florida (6-0, 4-0 SEC) at 6 p.m. Saturday on ESPN.Tight end Dillon Gordon is expected to play for the first time since injuring his Achilles against Auburn in the second game of the season. Defensive end Tashawn Bower, who has missed the last two games since injuring his leg at Syracuse, is also expected to play.Starting fullback John David Moore (thigh) will not play against Florida and may not be back until the Western Kentucky game on Oct. 24 or the Alabama game on Nov. 7.QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Yes, we are working on it.”— LSU senior associate athletic director for NCAA compliance Bo Bahnsen on the status of LSU tailback Leonard Fournette going through the proper channels to auction off his jersey from the South Carolina game Saturday for flood relief in South Carolina.Coverage of LSU and Glenn Guilbeau commentary supported by Hebert’s Town and Country Auto Dealer in Shreveport located at 1155 E.

Chris Hardwick’s wife issues a “statement of defense” following sexual assault allegations

first_imgPhoto by FilmMagic/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Lydia Hearst, the wife of Nerdist founder and AMC show host Chris Hardwick, has broken her silence to People, following allegations made by his ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra that he had emotionally and sexually abused her during their three-year relationship.Hearst declared, in part, “This is not a statement in defense, this is a statement of defense. Defense for all the women who have been sexually abused, raped, trafficked, and tortured; defense of all the people who this movement was started for…As someone who has been involved in toxic relationships in the past, I…do not take this situation lightly.”She added, “I have made the decision to come out in support of my husband, not out of obligation, but out of necessity to speak the truth about the person I know. Chris is nothing but loving and compassionate and is the only person who has stood by me, never judged me, helped me heal, and feel whole.”“To defend my husband would be giving credence to any of these accusations,” she continued. “I will not do that. Chris Hardwick is a good man. I remain in complete support of my husband, and I believe that the truth will always win…”Hearst, 33, and Hardwick, 46, married in 2016.Last week, Dykstra claimed that she was in a relationship with an ex who was controlling and sexually abusive. She didn’t name the popular show host, but it was easy to work out to whom she was referring.In response, AMC pulled Hardwick’s show Talking with Chris Hardwick, and he was fired from moderating two panels at San Diego’s Comic-Con in July.A “heartbroken” Hardwick vehemently denied the accusations, and clarified that he left Dykstra after she had cheated on him; texts later surfaced that seemed to show that she was eager to reconcile with him.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Rooney: defense, re-signing Roethlisberger top priorities

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, left, walks off the field with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) following a 20-12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in an NFL football game in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014. (AP Photo/Don Wright)Maybe, but Pittsburgh looked closer than in consecutive 8-8 seasons in 2012 and 2013. Rebuilding is nearly complete, at least on offense. The Steelers set franchise records for points and yards behind Roethlisberger, All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell and All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown. Press Rooney on if this means the franchise’s identity has shifted away from its roots on the other side of the ball and he politely disagrees.“I’d say we still strive for a team with a strong defense and that’s something we’ll always try to have,” he said while adding the offense was “fun to watch.”The goal is to make it just as enjoyable when the defense takes the field. That part might be tricky. The Steelers finished 18th in yards allowed, their worst performance since 1991. Hall of Fame defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau resigned earlier this month and the status of longtime fixtures Brett Keisel, Ike Taylor, Troy Polamalu and James Harrison is uncertain. Rooney said it will be a few weeks before any decision is made on who to bring back and who to let walk. Keisel and Polamalu both have a year remaining on their current deals while Taylor and Harrison are free agents, though Harrison didn’t rule out one more season after occasionally brilliant play at age 36.Whoever returns out of that group would be short-term investments at best, and likely a relatively inexpensive one. That’s not the case with free agent linebacker Jason Worilds. The team placed the transition tag on Worilds last spring, and he responded with 7.5 sacks. With little established depth at outside linebacker – where former first-round pick Jarvis Jones has struggled to stay out of the training room – Worilds provides some stability.To retain him, the Steelers will need to pay him like he’s one of the elite at his position even if Worilds has yet to make a Pro Bowl. Rooney declined to put Worilds in any particular category, saying only the team would like to have him return in part because his specialty happens to be the current group’s biggest weakness.“We’ve got to get more sacks and put more pressure on the quarterback and I think in the games we were successful, we were able to do that,” Rooney said. “That’s a key piece of the puzzle that we have to look at as we build this defense going into next year.”While Rooney doesn’t believe new defensive coordinator Keith Butler – promoted after more than a decade as an assistant – will make drastic changes from the 3-4 scheme favored by LeBeau, he does expect Butler to offer more than tweaks. Finding new and creative ways to become disruptive in the backfield is a must.“It is a challenge now for a defensive coordinator to keep up with these high-powered offenses,” Rooney said.And it will be Butler’s responsibility to build around a core that includes defensive end Cam Heyward and linebacker Lawrence Timmons. There is a significant need for help in the secondary, especially if Taylor and Polamalu do not return. Rooney lauded the play of converted special teamers like Antwon Blake but understands defensive back will be a major need when the draft comes. The Steelers haven’t taken a cornerback in the first round since Chad Scott in 1997.That may have to change if Pittsburgh wants to get serious about returning to league’s upper echelon. Rooney anticipates having a bit of money to spend in free agency, though the team rarely splurges on high-priced veterans.“If there’s an opportunity to sign somebody like that, we’ll look at it,” he said. “I wouldn’t rule that out at this point but it kind of depends on what’s available to us and what we’re able to do at that point in time.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Newly acquired Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell, right, stands with team president Arthur J.

(AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)PITTSBURGH (AP) – The Pittsburgh Steelers took a calculated risk last spring when they opted not to re-sign quarterback Ben Roethlisberger with two years remaining on his current deal, opting instead to focus on bolstering the roster elsewhere.It’s going to cost them, and president Art Rooney II knows it. Then again, there are worse positions than negotiating with a player coming off the best statistical season of an already remarkable career.“I’ll take that problem,” Rooney said with a laugh Wednesday.It may be one of the easiest ones to solve over the next few months for the AFC North champions. Pittsburgh returned to the playoffs in 2014 after a two-year absence, going 11-5 and riding a dynamic offense and a perfect December to its first division title since 2010. While Rooney called it a “good” season with “a lot of positives” the Steelers’ last Super Bowl appearance is becoming an ever smaller speck in the rearview mirror.“Obviously we didn’t achieve our ultimate goal,” Rooney said.last_img read more
