Syracuse coaches react to John Wildhack’s hiring as director of athletics

first_img Published on July 12, 2016 at 6:55 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @ChrisLibonati After John Wildhack was introduced as Syracuse’s new director of athletics, several coaches stayed after his press conference to take questions. Here’s how they reacted to Wildhack’s hiring.Jim Boeheim, SU head men’s basketball coachDuring his press conference Wildhack said he and Boeheim play golf a few times each year and that, while they used to be good, that isn’t the case anymore.The general perception is seemingly that Wildhack was an out-of-the-box hire, and that SU had hired a businessman as its AD. The longtime SU coached nixed that thinking, saying it would be different had Wildhack come from a standard firm such as IBM, the multinational technology company. Instead, he said, Wildhack comes from ESPN, which deals in sports. While he has had to make contracts, Wildhack’s line of business is still sports. Boeheim also said he doesn’t think that the role of AD has changed all that much since he started at SU as a graduate assistant 1969. The main difference, he said, is in who is hired to fill the role. No longer are ADs similar to SU’s former longtime director of athletics Jake Crouthamel, a former football coach.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIan McIntyre, SU head men’s head soccer coach McIntyre teased that the only things he would put on his wishlist for Wildhack were a “goal-scorer” and someone to “keep (the ball) out of the net.” In reality, the soccer coach said, his first priority is to let Wildhack meet the team and the players. He said there wouldn’t be a long wishlist waiting for Wildhack when they sit down and talk for the first time, and that he’s just hoping to get better. While McIntyre also joked about getting men’s soccer matches on ESPN, he noted that the network will likely broadcast the Orange’s date at Clemson on Oct. 21. He also praised the search committee for selecting a new AD in a timely manner. “They worked very quickly and to come out with the caliber of John (Wildhack) for new AD, I think we’re all excited to see and be part of this next stage of SU Athletics,” McIntrye said. Dino Babers, SU head football coachBabers said Wildhack’s biggest negative probably would be hiring and firing coaches, but that when you look at SU’s coaching staff, Wildhack won’t have to worry about that for some time. Wildhack will have time to grow into his athletic department-specific jobs, Babers said, such as hiring and firing coaches. “I just feel like that’s something he’ll gather the knowledge as he goes,” Babers said. SU’s head football coach thought Wildhack’s interaction with on-air talent, specifically coaches that call games — Babers specifically mentioned former Texas coach Mack Brown — gives the new AD a good “background check.” Babers noted that Wildhack’s resume made it clear that he was somebody who’s in it for the long haul, having spent 36 years at ESPN. “We want people that want to be here … and if this not the place for you, then good luck at some other place, because we want people that really embrace what this university has to offer.”When asked whether success might propel Babers to leave SU as former AD Mark Coyle did, Babers said despite fans’ feelings toward the former athletic director, he wrote a “fantastic contract for Syracuse University.” Comments Related Stories 3 things John Wildhack said at his introductory press conferenceWhat John Wildhack’s hiring could mean for Syracuse: 6 experts weigh in5 things Daniel French and Rick Burton said about hiring John Wildhack as Syracuse’s Director of Athletics8 things to know about new Syracuse Director of Athletics John WildhackStorify: ESPN employees react to Syracuse hiring John Wildhack as new ADcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Titan’s Atmosphere Is a Hydrocarbon Factory

first_imgA press release from Jet Propulsion Laboratory announced the discovery of complex hydrocarbons in Titan’s atmosphere.  Some molecules have up to seven carbon atoms.  The discoveries came from the recent flyby on April 16, the closest yet, at just 638 miles above the surface.  Swooping into the upper layers of the atmosphere, the spacecraft came close enough for the ion and neutral mass spectrometer (INMS) to sample the chemical mix.  Hydrocarbons (H and C) and nitriles (N, H, and C) were detected, but the location was a bit puzzling: “it is surprising to find the plethora of complex hydrocarbon molecules in the upper reaches of the atmosphere,” the article states.  “Titan is very cold, and complex hydrocarbons would be expected to condense and rain down to the surface.”The press release could not resist holding up the primordial soup can again: “Scientists believe that Titan’s atmosphere may be a laboratory for studying the organic chemistry that preceded life and provided the building blocks for life on Earth.”  Read the 04/22 entry again.  Get past the chemicals, and talk about the information.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

I maybe didn’t have as much excitement about playing like I have now, and after that I have to thank my teammates,” Vela told TUDN.”It’s an individual achievement, but it’s a full-team job. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to have all the goals I have or everything I was able to do.”I think it’s a success we’ve created because we started from nothing with this team, so I feel like I really participated in everything we’re getting. I’m thankful for everything that’s happening.” last_img read more

Our 6 Takeaways From The Opening Weekend Of The NBA Playoffs

Check out our latest NBA predictions. The first weekend of the NBA playoffs had a bit of something for everyone. Yes, there was a snoozefest or two. But between eight basketball games, Tiger Woods winning the Masters and “Game of Thrones” coming back, maybe a nap was necessary anyway. (Even a couple of the blowouts featured some extracurriculars.) A few games came down to the final seconds, with three lower seeds stepping up and landing statement victories in their series openers. All in all, not a bad start.Let’s take a deeper look at the six playoff series that we expect to be the most interesting going forward. (Sorry to the Clippers-Warriors and Pistons-Bucks.)The young Nets looked sure of themselves. The Sixers looked confused.There were, and maybe are, fair questions to be raised about the Brooklyn Nets. They have very little depth on the inside, which could spell trouble against a dominant big like Joel Embiid. And their offense can be too heavily reliant on All-Star guard D’Angelo Russell.But at least Brooklyn knows what it is, which was more than you could say for the Sixers at times this weekend.For starters, Embiid’s status was known only minutes before the game began Saturday because of his bothersome knee — an availability question that would have required a number of changes to the game plan had he not been able to go. But beyond that, there’s also the issue of cohesion, which the Nets have and the Sixers simply do not.Before Saturday, Philly’s starting five — talented as it might be — had logged just 10 games together since acquiring Tobias Harris in a trade with the Clippers. And honestly, it looked that way for most of Game 1. Embiid, who missed five of the last seven regular-season games, started launching jumpers (which Brooklyn gladly gave him) after drawing a number of fouls on the Nets inside. Ben Simmons and J.J. Redick struggled badly on offense. Jimmy Butler opted to take matters into his own hands (Sixers coach Brett Brown called him “the adult in the room”) and scored a game-high 36 points. All this while Harris looked invisible and uninvolved, scoring just 4 points in 40 minutes of work.Meanwhile, the Nets’ guards had no such questions about their place in the pecking order. Russell struggled early but kept shooting and caught fire in the third period. Spencer Dinwiddie had a very quick first step and repeatedly found his way into the lane — again doing some of his best work this season against Philadelphia. And Caris LeVert continues to look more and more like his old self after returning from his injury in February. Both Dinwiddie and LeVert were integral to a franchise-record 59-point effort from the bench, which the Sixers had no answer for.Keep an eye on this series. The Sixers went all in with a pair of huge trades earlier this season. But that may be the reason that, as we’re midway through April, their opponent has a clearer sense of identity and the upper hand one game into their playoff matchup.Utah’s defense of Harden won’t work — at least not like thisIt was just one game, but very early on — before halftime, even — it seemed clear that Utah was going to have to rethink its defensive strategy for reigning MVP James Harden.The Jazz used a scheme that gave the left-handed Harden an open driving path on the right. The idea here: to take away the dominant hand of perhaps the NBA’s best offensive player, but also to take away his stepback 3-point jumper, maybe his greatest offensive weapon.They weren’t the first team to try this. The top-ranked Milwaukee Bucks’ defense found a ton of success with the idea late last month, by standing far to Harden’s left and slightly behind him.It was a different story for the second-ranked Utah defense, though, which Houston diced to pieces. Why did it work for the Bucks and not the Jazz? One reason was that Milwaukee’s rim protector, Brook Lopez, generally had the discipline to stay tethered to the baseline so that Clint Capela wouldn’t get an easy lob, like he often did on Sunday night, when Jazz center Rudy Gobert stepped up too far.But the other key to Milwaukee’s success was the athleticism and length of the Bucks’ primary and help defenders. Eric Bledsoe and Giannis Antetokounmpo are simply more imposing than Ricky Rubio and Donovan Mitchell or Joe Ingles, giving Harden less confidence that he can either get back to his left hand at the rim or sneak a pass to a teammate standing in the corner.Frankly, Utah wasn’t taking anything away early. By leaving Harden far too much space to navigate, the Jazz had no way of positioning their help defenders in the right spots, allowing The Beard to carve them up by finding both Capela for dunks and P.J. Tucker in the corner. (Tucker shoots almost 40 percent from there.)Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Harden.mp400:0000:0001:15Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Rubio told reporters after the game that the Jazz are committed to playing Harden the same way throughout the series. But regardless of how much they improve on that front, they’ll need to be far better — and faster — on offense to have a chance in this series.Excluding a half-court attempt at the end of the third period, Utah scored on seven of its nine transition plays. Getting earlier looks would make life easier, especially for Mitchell, who shot 36 percent against Houston in last year’s series before shooting just 39 percent Sunday, with five turnovers and no assists. In Game 1, the Jazz logged a dismal 25 percent effective field-goal rate when they got inside the last 5 seconds of the clock.Can the poor-shooting Thunder find their range?The post-game excuse “We just missed shots” is usually annoying. It can be read as not giving credit to the opponent for earning a hard-fought victory, and it can also serve as a way to avoid addressing what adjustments might need to be made in the next contest.But in Oklahoma City’s case, there would have been some truth to that claim. The Thunder missed 10 of their 13 wide-open attempts from the arc during their Game 1 loss in Portland.Yet while a lot of teams could use a stat like that to express confidence in simply performing better the next time, it’s worth noting that Oklahoma City … isn’t exactly a team of marksmen. When the Thunder shoot poorly, it’s hard to know whether that’s a sign that things will get better for them or if it’s just Oklahoma City struggling with what it’s seemingly always struggled with.Making matters worse, Paul George — their best shooter and co-star alongside Russell Westbrook — is playing with a troublesome left shoulder, meaning his shot could be affected for the remainder of the playoffs.If there was a bright side offensively, it was that the Thunder eventually found daylight by attacking Portland’s Enes Kanter with a steady diet of pick and rolls — something they can likely go back to in Game 2. But OKC would also be wise to occasionally locate Kanter as he’s going for offensive boards. He killed his former team for 20 points and 18 rebounds, which more than made up for his defensive struggles in the narrow victory.Were the Nuggets simply nervous?Similar to Oklahoma City are the Denver Nuggets, who many — our FiveThirtyEight projection model included — remain skeptical of. A lot of that is rooted in Denver’s inexperience: This is the team’s first trip to the playoffs with this core, which is suddenly facing high expectations as the No. 2 seed in the West.Saturday’s loss, like OKC’s on Sunday, saw Denver miss several open looks when the Nuggets were in striking distance of the Spurs. The teams were neck-and-neck down the stretch, yet Denver somehow missed all eight of its attempts in the second half when taking a shot that would have either tied the game or given the Nuggets the lead. And Jamal Murray, the team’s 22-year-old starting point guard, had an incredibly rough final minute or so in the Game 1 loss.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Murray.mp400:0000:0000:49Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.All of that could have been mere coincidence or simply the result of missing shots the team normally makes. But because of noise about the team’s inexperience — especially as Denver is playing perennial playoff club San Antonio — it’s only natural that the questions about nerves will be there.Whatever the case may be, one thing clearly needs to change going forward: Denver star Nikola Jokic cannot finish playoff games with just nine shot attempts. Yes, he managed a triple-double anyway. But when the team’s jumpshots simply aren’t falling, he’s too efficient a scorer not to take matters into his own hands.The Pacers need offensive counters — but even that may not be enoughOutside of the Pistons and Clippers, I feel most pessimistic about the Pacers after Game 1 of their series with Boston. I went in thinking it would be really tough for them to find enough scoring to win a series, and Saturday’s 74-point showing gave me even more doubts.My real concern now, after watching leading scorer Bojan Bogdanovic struggle against the Celtics again — when he did this all regular season, too — is the lack of counters the Pacers seem to have in their arsenal once Boston has snuffed out the initial action.Indiana got next to nothing out of its handoffs to Bogdanovic, which produced just 0.14 points per time they utilized the play, according to Second Spectrum. Jaylen Brown was generally quick enough to recover and get by the screener, and in the instances when he wasn’t, Al Horford was swarming Bogdanovic, often forcing him to give up the ball to a teammate who wasn’t necessarily in a great position to score, either.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Bojan.mp400:0000:0002:31Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Similarly, the team — which scored just 8 points in the third quarter — found itself at a disadvantage when it sought to make hay with Wes Matthews post-ups, something we knew would likely be a losing strategy from what we’d seen prior to Saturday (particularly if there’s no secondary action that comes of it). Statistically, Matthews has been one of the NBA’s five least efficient post-up options since he joined the team in February.1Among those with at least 30 regular-season post-ups since Feb. 11. Indiana averaged just 0.71 points per Matthews post-up, per Second Spectrum data.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Wes.mp400:0000:0000:44Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The Celtics deserve credit for playing as well as they did at that end of the floor, particularly without defensive stud Marcus Smart. But if the Pacers can’t develop better second and third options on these plays when they try them, it could be an ugly series for Indiana, which has been putting too much pressure on its defense for a while now.Lowry struggled again, but Orlando’s win was anything but magicThe most surprising win of the weekend to many was the Magic’s road triumph over Toronto, which Orlando sealed with a game-winning triple from D.J. Augustin.In that sequence — before which coach Steve Clifford elected not to call timeout — Augustin called for a screen and roll, knowing he’d get Marc Gasol on a switch. Though Augustin had hit 3 of 4 from the arc for 22 points, Gasol didn’t come out far enough. The shot left the Toronto crowd stunned, which takes a lot at this point, given what they’ve been through for years now.Aside from nailing that play, the Magic did a ton of things right to put themselves in good position beforehand. They bottled up Pascal Siakam in the first half, and while Kawhi Leonard2Who played only 33 minutes. Expect that to change in Game 2. was efficient, Aaron Gordon played pretty solid defense on him, making him work for contested shots. Orlando was nearly perfect from the line and drilled almost half of its triples on the day. This was a young Magic club that had the same 15-8 second-half record that Toronto did, while ranking inside the Top 10 on both sides of the floor over that span of time. If you hadn’t watched Orlando play, you might not have seen this coming — but it wasn’t a fluke.And neither was Kyle Lowry’s scoreless, 0-for-7 showing. Aside from the fact that Lowry had several low-scoring games this season — including a four-game streak of single-digit performances — Lowry has also struggled in the first games of playoff series. He’s scored just 33 points combined in playoff-opening Game 1s the past five years.There’s not necessarily anything for the Raptors to panic about yet. They’ve seen this before, even if they had hoped they were past having to witness the early round struggles cropping up again. read more

2 former Buckeyes headed to MLS

Former Ohio State men’s soccer teammates Matt Gold and Konrad Warzycha are headed for Major League Soccer. Defensive midfielder Gold and attacking midfielder Warzycha heard their names called in the third round of the MLS SuperDraft. The two were selected by Toronto FC and Sporting Kansas City, respectively, making them the 11th and 12th players in program history to earn MLS draft selections. Soccer pundits didn’t think highly of Gold’s draft stock, but Toronto selected him with the 43rd overall pick. The selection confirmed Gold’s suspicion that he and Warzycha might “do better than what was expected.” Gold described his performance at the MLS Player Combine as an up-and-down affair, saying, “The first day, I couldn’t have played better; the second day was the opposite; and the third day was somewhere in between.” Despite not being sure how much he helped himself at the combine, Gold got the news he had been waiting for. “I was at a loss for words when I found out,” Gold said. “I’m really excited.” Warzycha, the 46th overall pick, was also excited while describing his emotions about being drafted in spite of a self-described “average” combine performance. “You never see this day coming,” Warzycha said. “It’s surreal; I’m on cloud nine.” In joining Sporting KC, Warzycha will reunite with former OSU teammate Roger Espinoza. They spoke shortly after today’s selection was announced. “I got a chance to talk to Roger, and he told me about the new stadium in Kansas City and the fans,” Warzycha said. “I think this is going to be a great fit.” read more

Villa Boro want Bolasie

first_imgAston Villa and Middlesbrough both want Yannick Bolasie from Everton despite the close of the summer transfer window in England, according to Birmingham Mail.The winger has fallen out of favor at Goodison Park with new manager Marco Silva opting to spend around £45million for Brazilian youngster Richarlison, who plays the same position as Bolasie.Bolasie joined Everton for a then club-record fee of around £30million from Crystal Palace back in 2016 and was linked with a return to Selhurst Park this summer but that failed to materialize.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Aston Villa’s chief executive, the team needed to spend £144.5 million on 12 players in order to stay competitive.With the loan window still very active, Aston Villa want the Congolese star to join the club on loan as they look to improve their squad for the upcoming season after decimating the squad initially due to financial issues.Meanwhile, Middlesbrough are also believed to be interested in the services of Bolasie. Tony Pulis is in search of another winger to replace the already departed Adama Traore who joined newly promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.Bolasie appears to have little or no future with Everton and he’s widely expected to leave the Toffees this summer.last_img read more
