UK offense working for faster starts

first_imgOct 3, 2015; Lexington, KY, USA; Kentucky Wildcats wide receiver Jeff Badet (13) drops a pass against Eastern Kentucky Colonels defensive back Tyrell Curry (31) in the first half at Commonwealth Stadium.Oct 3, 2015; Lexington, KY, USA; Kentucky Wildcats wide receiver Jeff Badet (13) drops a pass against Eastern Kentucky Colonels defensive back Tyrell Curry (31) in the first half at Commonwealth Stadium.LEXINGTON, Ky. – Even Kentucky offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson was left looking for answers after Jeff Badet’s fumble against Eastern Kentucky marked the team’s third turnover on an opening drive in five games.“It’s not that we’re doing a terrible job with ball security,” Dawson said. “I think that’s the first fumble we lost all year. It’s just those situations are just, you know — It deflates you. It hurts our whole team.”At South Carolina Kentucky quarterback Patrick Towles threw an interception on Kentucky’s third offensive play of the game, two plays after a drop by wide receiver Dorian Baker on a potential long gain. A week later against Florida Towles threw another interception on the offense’s opening drive – this time two plays after Baker dropped a possible touchdown pass in the end zone.The Wildcats made it through the first drive against Missouri without any drops or turnovers, but against Eastern Kentucky the problem returned when Badet fumbled on a 9-yard gain while trying to stretch for a first down.UK backup receivers looking for more snaps“It’s not like the kid was trying to fumble,” Dawson said. “The kid was trying to get extra yards. He was playing hard. There’s times where the ball just gets hit perfectly and gets knocked out. Obviously we’re going to teach ball security and we do. We teach and preach and coach ball security. It sucks when it happens at that time.”Badet’s reception marked the third consecutive 9-yard gain for a Kentucky offense that appeared to find an early groove before the fumble. After that turnover much of the offensive success disappeared with the Wildcats punting on each of the next two offensive drives.Asked if he felt snake bit after the third opening-drive turnover in five games, Dawson said he didn’t think much of anything after the play.“I’m just like, ‘Well, that’s interesting,’“ Dawson said with a laugh.He did admit the early mistake affected his play-calling on subsequent drives and could have contributed to Towles’ early struggles against EKU.“The first drive we’re being patient, we’re getting 10-yard chunks and we fumble, and the second drive I say, ‘All right we’re going to get big and be big boys out here.’“ Dawson said. “Then we get like a yard. So then I just start throwing it down the field. It probably has to do with my patience”Email Jon Hale at jahale@courier-journal.com . Follow him on Twitter @JonHale_CJ .last_img read more

Kellnerov will ride in Prague with an expensive mare, he is…

first_imgKellner has been waiting for the biggest seductions since last May, when she first broke her femur from this mare. Due to that, in the turn of the year she drank for the culmination of the series Global Champions in Prague.At the arrest of this year, she went to the first competition with a mare for which her father Petr Kellner paid him a quarter of a billion crowns. Then their program was disrupted by a coronary conduction.After the forced break, however, they jumped together several times again, and for Prague, Catchie was a clear choice for Kellner. She was the most prepared, she was in the best condition and we got used to the biggest races the best, she said in an interview for EquiTV.cz.It will take place in Prague from Thursday the 20th to Sunday the 23rd of August. Kellnerov and other riders will be able to meet the Olympic requirements for themselves and the event in the fifth National Cup and Sunday’s Grand Prix.First I will focus on the Pohr nrod, because this is the first year. And I hope it works out there. I will only have Catchie at these races, and she could be a little tired on Sunday, said Kellnerov, who represents the Prague Lions team in the Global Champions series.The opportunity to seduce the home crowd as a member of the Czech national team is dark, but at the same time responsible. The pressure will be high. It’s Pohr nrod and you want to support those esk riders around you, not to disappoint them. At the same time, it will be an Olympic qualification, it will also give pressure, due to which we will strive for the greatest possible result. I’ll have to mentally prepare for it so I don’t succumb to the pressure, she thought.Anna Kellnerov s Catch me If You Can v DauhBetween the seductions, she has to work intensively on the leg she injured last year. It costs me a lot of energy and strength. Except for one, I have to exercise a few times a week. I have to go for different relaxation methods, because my muscles contract and a lot of it was. I can every day in pain, but I can name it somehow. When I focus on regeneration and my monma, it works for a while, Kellnerov described, with the fact that it is not limited to her foot at the course.The International Jumping Competition (CSIO) returns to Prague after twelve years. The last competition took place in 2008 in the riding arena on Csaskm Island. The event is organized by the same team that usually prepares the Global Champions Prague PlayOffs at the O2 Aren. This will not happen this year, as will the rest of the serile due to coronavirus.last_img read more

Dominic Thiem Becomes First Austrian To Reach Australian Open Final

first_imgDominic Thiem secured his place in a Grand Slam championship final for the third time in his career by fighting back to defeat Alexander Zverev 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-6(4) at the Australian Open on Friday. Thiem battled back from losing the first set, and saved two set points in the third set of a 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-6(4) victory over first-time major semi-finalist, Alexander Zverev in three hours and 42 minutes on Rod Laver Arena.“It was an unreal match, two tie-breaks, so tough and so close,” Thiem told former World No. 1 John McEnroe in an on-court interview. “It was almost impossible to break him, with [him getting in] such a high percentage of first serves. An Australian Open final is unreal, and what a start to the season so far.”Thiem is the first Austrian to reach the Australian Open final, where he will look to beat second seed and seven-time champion Novak Djokovic. The 26-year-old has previously finished as runner-up to Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros in 2018 and 2019.“I have been twice in the Roland Garros final, twice facing Rafa, and now I am facing Djokovic, he is the ‘King of Australia’, winning seven titles here,” said Thiem. “I will try my best and do everything I can to win. But if I walk off the court in two days’ time a loser, I will be patient and trust the process and continue to work hard.”Thiem won 23 of his 27 points at the net, and hit 43 winners, including 10 aces. Zverev, who hit 103 of his 127 first serves into court, converted five of his 14 break point chances and committed 33 unforced errors.RelatedAustralian Open: Djokovic Beats Federer In Straight Sets To Reach FinalJanuary 30, 2020In “Tennis”ATP Finals: Thiem Defeats Defending Champions Zverev To Set Up Tsitsipas FinalNovember 17, 2019In “Tennis”Novak Djokovic Fights Back To Win 8th Australian Open TitleFebruary 2, 2020In “Tennis”last_img read more

Agyemang Badu boost for Meteors’ Dream Team 5 clash

first_imgGhana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu is set to feature for the Black Meteors in their All African Games qualifier second leg against Nigeria’s Dream Team 5.This serves as a major booster to the national Olympic team who are desperate to qualify to appease Ghanaians following a recent poor run by the various national teams.Ghana must overturn a first leg 1-3 deficit and Badu who is already established with the Black Stars, will be central to coach Kwasi Appiah’s side.The Udinese player told Asempa Sports that his club has cleared him to play in the match.The Black Meteors will face the Nigerian Dream Team 5 on Sunday, July 10 at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi.Ghana slumped to a 3-1 defeat in the first leg in Benin City after Nigeria came from behind to score three goals in the second half. The loss to their rivals in the final round of qualifying for the Games has made the return clash at home a more daunting task with Ghana needing two unanswered goals to edge out Nigeria for the sole ticket from Zone III.With about 10 members of the squad who played in the 1-3 loss in Benin State back to their bases in Europe for pre-season engagements, Coach Kwasi Appiah has just a handful of the players available on the first day of training in Kumasi.Kwasi Appiah is making do with available hands and expects other members to join in later on in the week.He is however confident that Ghana will beat Nigeria, praying that his charges keep their focus and get on with the job at hand.Source: Asempa FM/Ghanalast_img read more

Conclusion of the Orioles GM Saga: Dan Duquette

first_imgThe story of Dan Duquette is simple.  He was the former GM of Montreal (from 1991-1994) and the division rival Boston Red Sox (from 1994-2002).  He has been out of baseball since 2002, after being dismissed by new Red Sox owner (at the time), John Henry. Like any other GM, Duquette has his detractors.  Many people will simply say that since he is so out of touch with the sense of the game, it may be impossible for him to run a franchise in these times.  Duquette is said to be well-connected in Latin America and has a talent for uncovering stars through scouting.The process of his hiring seemed to come together rather quickly.  After candidate Tony LaCava turned down the job, the Orioles scrambled to get permission to interview other options.  Duquette, who was not even on the second list of candidates originally, interviewed on Friday.  From there, the rest must have gone extremely well because an announcement came Saturday morning that he was coming back to Baltimore to sign the deal.  While it was not officially announced until days following, there was a general consensus that he was “our guy”.What some of you may not know about Dan Duquette, is that the two franchises that he presided over, were heavily loaded with current and future star players; not just through drafting, but via free agency and trades as well.  In the strike-shortened season of 1994, the Montreal Expos team (that he built), had the best record in all of Major League Baseball.  As Duquette started 1987, as the director of player development, the Expos drafted and signed great players, like Vladimir Guerrero, Marquis Grissom, Cliff Floyd, Javier Vasquez, Orlando Cabrera, and Rondell White.   Once Duquette became GM, he acquired John Wetteland and Pedro Martinez, a relative unknown at the time.Dan Duquette ended up leaving Montreal for his hometown Red Sox before  the 1994 season began.  Once he was entrenched in Boston, he drafted Nomar Garciaparra, a Red Sox icon, David Eckstein, Hanley Ramirez, Freddy Sanchez, and Kevin Youkilis.  Duquette took heat for letting stars Roger “The Rocket” Clemens and Mo Vaughn depart through free agency. Boston fans may not have been thrilled, but they had no idea what awaited them.  Dan Duquette acquired Tim Wakefield, Derek Lowe, Jason Varitek, Pedro Martinez (AGAIN) through trades, signed Manny Ramirez (to a then record setting deal), and also signed free agent Johnny Damon.  Even after Duquette was out of the organization, players he drafted were used in traded to gain more stars, such as Curt Schilling and Josh Beckett.  Needless to say, Duquette had a  HUGE part in engineering that 2004 World Series winning, curse ending, Boston Red Sox team.Not to be repetitive, but if the past is the best indicator of the future, Orioles fans have a whole hell of a lot to look forward to.  Duquette’s resume widely outweighs the fact that he’s been out of baseball for nine years.  After the way 2011 ended, I am REALLY excited for this offeason, and the start of 2012.  I have faith in Dan Duquette so let’s so what he can do O’s fans!! If anyone can turn this around, maybe it’s Duquette, version 2.0. Orioles fans all over were impatiently awaiting the naming of the new general manager of the team.  After a long and exhaustive interview process, spanning over a few weeks, the Orioles found their man.  Dan Duquette, cousin of former Orioles executive, Jim Duquette, was officially announced as Andy MacPhail’s successor.  Duquette signed a three year deal to try and rebuild a franchise going through some  turbulent times.  There is a thought most of you may be familiar with, that the past is a great indicator of the future.  If that proves to be the case, Baltimore may be in line for a great future.

Family History Fair speaker encourages DNA testing for genealogical research

first_imgMichelle Enke was in Wellington speaking about DNA at the Sumner County Family History Fair.by Amber Countryman, Sumner Newscow — Many companies now offer DNA testing at affordable rates, but not everyone knows how to decipher the results. Michelle Enke, manager of genealogy and special collections at Wichita Public Library, spoke on DNA and genealogy at the Sumner County Historical and Genealogical Society’s annual Family History Fair held at the Memorial Auditorium.“DNA is another tool to use in researching genealogy,” Enke said. “People test for ethnicity, health reasons, and to trace their ancestors through their living cousins.”In order for people to trace their ancestors, one must find living cousins who have had their DNA tested and put the results online for others to find.“That’s what you’re looking for, and you hope that they have information that you’re looking for,” Enke said. “You hope they have letters, diaries, etc. to learn more about your family.”DNA results can prove parentage, prove near relatives, suggest further relatives and suggest ethnicity.“It can suggest further relatives and suggest ethnicity, it’s just a suggestion and not saying 100 percent this or that,” Enke said. “It’s arbitrary and estimated, matching genes with populations. Siblings also have different DNA. Don’t be surprised by what a DNA test does or does not show.”There are also different types of DNA. Autosomal tests the Y-DNA, mitochondiral and X, which is useful for genealogical research, and is the most common DNA test.“You need to build your own family tree, otherwise DNA is useless,” Enke said.When Y-DNA is tested, it helps search for surnames. Y sex chromosomes pass almost unchanged to from father to son. Women do not have the Y chromosome.“It is used to track your father’s father’s father,” Enke said.A haplogroup is a group of people who left one country and traveled to another country, all in individual groups. As they intermarry and have children, a number is assigned to each group, and through the generations, there are mutations.“Groups came out of Africa and went to different places, and kept going to different places,” Enke said. “As people intermarry and have kids, they have different DNA, and there are mutations after several years. Different mutations are assigned a different number, and the mutations can be tracked. It’s a very slow changing DNA.”Mitochondrial DNA is used to track the mother’s mother’s mother, and is carried from mother to child, whether male or female.X-DNA is passed from mother to child. Men have X-DNA from their mother. This is very useful to narrow down matches. This will give you information from your dad’s mother’s mother and not just your mother’s.“Males are easier to trace,” Enke said. “The Y-DNA is used to trace guys. “If your first cousin clear down to your great great grandfather have the same haplogroup, you are probably all blood related. A mathematical formula is used to figure out your DNA.”There are several companies you can order DNA testing kits from, with Ancestry being the most popular. They only test Y-DNA, but have the largest database of testers with ethnicity tests in over 350 regions, DNA circles, and you can download raw data.A company called 23andMe tests autosomal, mitochondrial, Y-DNA and percentage of Neanderthal. They look at health, carrier status and traits. They offer a chromosome browser called DNA Comparison, where you can download matches and see where you match in the chromosome browser.FamilyTreeDNA tests autosomal, mtDNA and Y-DNA tests. There are separate fees for different tests and you can upgrade from the same sample. There are two million testers within the database, and a chromosome browser that allows you to compare up to seven people at a time.MyHeritage.com requires a paid membership to access the DNA features. You can upload raw data from other companies and access ethnicity for free. There are over 40 different ethnicities from Founders Project, and a chromosome browser that’s easy to use.Helix.com tests deep ancestry, Neanderthal percentage, health and traits. You have to pay for each option but can use one test sample. This ancestry test is available through National Geographic. There are fewer than one million testers and you can download raw data for a large fee.LivingDNA.com is United Kingdom based and the tests determine which areas of the UK your ancestors came from. They test autosomal, mtDNA and Y-DNA for deep ancestry.In order to use DNA for genealogical purposes, you must improve your test results, find your DNA cousin matches, build your family tree, build back 4-5 generations and bring all of your siblings down as far as possible.Other companies include gedmatch.com, DNA Painter, DNA Land, and promethease.com.Another idea is to just Google your matches if they don’t have a public family tree, or find them on Facebook.” There are DNA counselors who will work with you,” Enke said. “If someone who doesn’t know their dad isn’t their dad, it can effect them.”There are many additional reading materials, online resources and lists, such as Cyndi’s List, available for genealogical research.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.
