USC takes control of Pac-12 South with win over Colorado

first_imgThe Trojans started off slow, then scored 28 unanswered points to claim a lead that would not be taken away from them against No. 19 Colorado on Saturday night in a 31-20 win at the Coliseum. The win propelled USC into first place in the Pac-12 South, with a 3-1 conference record and 4-2 mark overall.Twenty-one of those points came in the second quarter. USC’s fire ignited after Colorado scored the first touchdown of the game, when sophomore wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. took the snap on the 49-yard line and ran it all the way out of a Wildcat formation.USC redshirt sophomore wide receiver Velus Jones responded immediately with a 31-yard kickoff return to open the drive that would end with a 27-yard pass from freshman quarterback JT Daniels to redshirt sophomore receiver Tyler Vaughns in the end zone, putting the Trojans on the board. Vaughns set up his touchdown with a 28-yard reception.USC celebrates after a touchdown. – Josh Dunst | Daily TrojanOn USC’s next drive, Daniels launched a pass 65 yards to junior wide receiver Michael Pittman in the end zone to give USC its first lead of the game. Colorado responded with a drive that failed to pick up any yards. Daniels came back out and threw to Pittman again for a leaping 39-yard catch. Pittman ended the drive fittingly with another catch in the end zone to score a touchdown, extending USC’s lead to 14 with one minute left in the half.“I feel like the offense is taking steps on making those explosive plays,” Pittman said. “We showed some good things tonight to move forward.”Daniels threw two interceptions in the first quarter, with the first coming on the first snap of the game and seemed to have no Trojan receivers in the area. It took until the fifth drive of the game for USC to record a first down on a 12-yard reception from Pittman.The second interception was forced by Colorado senior safety Evan Worthington when he threw a pass downfield with two minutes left in the first quarter intended for freshman receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.“It was neat to see the quarterback tonight have a couple mistakes and then just settle in,” head coach Clay Helton said. “It wasn’t all the way perfect but he really was putting balls to the right people … He found the one-on one matchups, …  put the ball up decisively and believed in his guys.”The first quarter consisted of nine possessions and ended with neither team entering the red zone and no score on the board. USC’s defense held Colorado to two first downs in the first quarter and one rushing yard, while the offense failed to convert a third down. The Trojans finished the first half with no rushing yards on 11 attempts, but had 255 passing yards compared to Colorado’s 20. Redshirt senior cornerback Ajene Harris tipped a pass from junior quarterback Steven Montez and bobbled the football before running it six yards into the endzone to bring some life to the third quarter and to give the Trojans a 21-point lead. He tied a school record with his third career pick-six.“I saw them keep trying to throw under routes to [Shenault], and I had a chance to jump at that time,” Harris said. “I had seen it was thrown behind him and he bobbled it. I tried to secure it as fast as I could and get it into the end zone.”Tyler Vaughns catches the Trojans’ first touchdown of the night against Colorado – Josh Dunst | Daily TrojanThe quarter ended still without an answer from Colorado. The fourth quarter saw two penalties in a row from USC that pushed Colorado close to the end zone. They inched forward and scored a touchdown on a two-yard rush from senior running back Kyle Evans, their first points since the first quarter. The Buffaloes closed within two scores after another touchdown, but the Trojans hung on for the win.The Trojan defense held Shenault to 72 yards on nine carries and senior running back Travon McMillian to 43 yards. “Defensively, it was a tremendous effort,” Helton said. “Anytime you have 16 tackles for loss in a game, it just felt like the defense was playing in Colorado’s backfield all night. [Senior linebacker Porter Gustin] had the numbers, but we challenged the rest of our kids to be aggressive to the ball, to force the quarterback to have an off-night. I thought they took the challenge.”Senior linebacker Cam Smith was out with a hamstring injury, placing the leadership responsibilities on redshirt junior John Houston. “I prepared for it,” Houston said. “I prepare for it everyday, every practice. I try to call all of the calls while [Smith] is in there, just to make sure I’m on the right stuff.”USC’s four sacks on the night started with Colorado’s first drive of the game when Gustin sacked Montez on third down. Gustin and redshirt senior defensive lineman Malik Dorton combined for another sack for a nine-yard loss right before Harris’ pick-six. Redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Liam Jimmons added a sack in the second quarter to push Montez back nine yards and prevent the Buffaloes from finding a first down, along with junior linebacker Jordan Iosefa’s six-yard sack early in the fourth quarter on third down. USC’s defense held strong against Colorado on Saturday – Josh Dunst | Daily TrojanGustin went down on the field with a right ankle late in the fourth quarter. He was carted through the tunnel and hopped on his left leg into the locker room. He came out with crutches and a boot on his right foot.Freshman linebacker Palaie Gaoteote found out he would be starting on Friday, so he took the two days to intensively prepare and watch film. He left in the third quarter with concussion-like symptoms after a hard hit and did not return to play, but still finished as USC’s leading tackler with nine tackles. He said the hit knocked himself out. “I showed a lot of instinct, a lot of tenacity,” Gaoteote said. “I just expected to be a team player.”USC finished the night with 13 penalties for 123 yards, which was not much of an improvement from the 18 penalties for 169 yards against Arizona.“We haven’t put together a complete game,” senior safety Marvel Tell said. “We haven’t reached our potential yet.”The Trojans will travel to Utah to continue Pac-12 play on Oct. 20 at 6 p.m.last_img read more

Mickelson and Brady opened at +190.Who won the Tiger vs. Phil match in 2018?Despite odds favoring the Tiger-Manning pairing, it was Mickelson who won the original Match in November 2018. Mickelson entered that competition, held at the Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, as a +160 underdog. After tying Woods through 18 holes, he finally pulled through in the fourth playoff hole.Mickelson had to play from behind for 11 out of 18 holes in the original tournament; after winning his $200,000 bet that he’d open the match with a birdie, Mickelson played 1-up on Woods from the second through sixth holes. He finally pulled even on Hole 7 before going back 1-up on Holes 8 and 9. Mickelson started Hole 10 in much the same fashion before evening the score and taking a one-shot lead against Tiger on Holes 11 and 12, respectively. The two were all square on 13 and 14, though Mickelson fell behind a shot on 15 and 16. He evened the score on 17 and 18 to take the tournament to a playoff.MORE: What is the ‘All In Challenge’?Is Tom Brady good at golf?Brady won’t give up his day job anytime soon, but he’s still a decent golfer, reportedly playing to an 8.1 handicap.Back in 2017 — when he was still quarterback with the Patriots — he was awarded membership of The Country Club at Brookline in Massachusetts, which hosted the 1913 U.S. Open Championship win by caddie Francis Ouimet. Now in Tampa, Brady has been granted membership at the Seminole Golf Club, ranked No. 34 by Golf.com in the top 100 courses in the world.Other notable golf accomplishments from Brady include winning the Michel Jordan Celebrity Invitational in 2006 (he was paired with Jordan, himself a notoriously competitive golfer). Brady has also played in several pro-ams over the years. That includes the 2014 Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where in Round 3 he sunk a 10-foot putt to eagle on the par-5 second hole:And, if you’re curious as to how he looks on the course, here’s a side-by-side look at his swing compared to Manning, Mickelson and Tiger:A legendary golf match. ⛳🏈@TigerWoods & Peyton [email protected] & @TomBradyThe two-man teams will compete in an 18-hole match on May 24 at Medalist Golf Club with $10 million in charitable donations being made to COVID-19 relief. pic.twitter.com/FLz0BPQ21o— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) May 7, 2020So yeah, he’s definitely better than Charles Barkley swinging clubs.Is Peyton Manning good at golf?Manning reportedly plays at a 6.4 handicap, slightly better than Brady’s. Like Brady, Manning also regularly plays in pro-ams; he finished ninth in the 2020 Pebble Beach Pro-Am (which Brady missed out on). There, he sunk a lengthy putt for a net eagle — downhill. We are less than a week away from what should be one of the most entertaining sporting events in recent memory — even with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic.”The Match: Champions for Charity” is a team-match golf competition, played between the pairings of Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning and Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. It should be a welcome distraction in a world that is missing sports, especially considering it pits four of the most accomplished athletes in their respective sports in for a friendly round of golf. It should also be noted that Manning may have a slight edge in the fact he has teamed up with Tiger before: The two played together at the 2018 and ’19 Memorial Pro-Am, where he sunk an 18-foot birdie on the 18th hole.If you’re still uncertain which of these NFL Hall of Famers can beat the other out, take a look at their golf highlights over the years:last_img read more

What do single moms, motivated professionals and baby boomer retirees have…

first_imgAll three thrive in the industry of Network Marketing!  Interesting to note that there are many different views of the industry itself and most if not all are right.  Just as in the professions of, say, dentistry or roofing some are to be trusted, some need to be put out of business and everything in between.  Simply put, when done right, Network Marketing is a powerful profession endorsed by successful business men such as Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki who say “There are many benefits the Network Marketing industry offers those who want more from their lives”.  To read more about why Trump and Kiyosaki recommend the industry click here: http://www.professionalnetworkers.com/pdflibrary/WhyNetworkMarketing.pdfMotivated professionals do well because they have great networks in place and they know how to succeed in the financial arena.  Baby Boomer retirees do fantastic because not only are they backed by the wisdom and experience of the years they are also often ready to re-invent themselves and give back by serving and helping others.  Single moms quite honestly find this to be a extraordinary model.  Network Marketing is a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) effort and women, being natural at relationships and connecting, excel in this kind of business.  Take into account that 85% of all women that earn over $100,000 per year in the United States do it in the industry of network marketing. It is a business that thrives on helping and serving others and combined with the flexibility of building your business on your own time, from home, while wearing your pajamas and making the kids eggs and you have a perfect option.Joanna Power and Isagenix teamWhether a person wants to build a full time income or create an extra $500 a month to supplement the family budget the industry of Network Marketing can help you make it happen.  It is an industry that welcomes all ages, experience levels and backgrounds.  A good company provides support and training, allows for significant tax advantages and a person can build the business part time while they work another job.Network Marketing is not a get rich scheme, but with patience, effort, and consistent work, a distributor can earn a good amount of money.  Network marketing is a simple business model in which a company sells their service or product to customers through contractors who educate the customer on how to use the products for the greatest benefit.  People tell other people, just like they would if they bought something great at Target or Macy’s, only they get compensated for sharing the information.  In this model, one person does not have to do everything to profit, it is teamwork and a team player will succeed in the business. In this business distributors are not the employees of the company, but contractors who take products from the company to the consumer. The distributor earns commission for products they sell.  Many large companies follow this model to sell their product.Align with a company and product that you truly believe in.  Create a residual income that grows as you grow.  Spend time with people who want more out of life and are also willing to serve and grow.  Learn to serve deeply and help others get what they want so that you can have what you want.  Network marketing is the way of the future because it helps us to connect with each other.  We get to develop friendships that are deep and lifelong because we all want the same thing…..MORE OUT of LIFE and to get out of the J.O.B. (just over broke) model and stop trading time for money.  Network Marketing, when done right, is personal growth with a compensation plan.My company rocks and is perfect for me!  I have been with them for over 8 years now.  This is my first go at network marketing and I had a lot to learn.  I have been forced to grow myself- to become more empathetic, compassionate and allowing- and at the same time grow into a leader.  This industry is built to help people.  The only way I win is to reach out and help someone else.  This is the real deal.  Nutrition is critical and there is a health care crisis coming beyond what you could even imagine.  I have dug and dug to find something wrong at the corporate level.  They are for real.  The products are for real.  This company is filled with people that love life and they love to help others love their life again.  Through simple and proper nutrition people feel fantastic again.  This is what gets me out of bed in the morning!  I get to help people.  Fire them up again.  Help them help themselves and get their mojo back.  I have literally watched lives change and it is a deep and lasting impression.  I am humbled by it and look forward to truly making a difference.So, no matter what your stage of life you just may want to consider taking this wonderful journey!  If you would like to learn more and explore if this may be a solution for you please contact Joanna Power at 360.701.4231 or [email protected] Facebook13Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — November 16, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 11-16-17Cloudy skies are seen over a large part of the state today, and we are still dealing with some lingering shower action this morning in northeast and eastern parts of the state. Sloppy wet snowflakes will be seen in spots, particularly in NE OH, influenced by the lake. Clouds can break later today, especially over southern and western parts of the state. Colder air will filter in to our area through the day.Tomorrow clouds will be on the increase, especially midday and afternoon. We may get lucky and be able to start the day with some sun. Scattered showers develop tomorrow evening and overnight in the north (particularly NW) and spread south and east through the day Saturday. These rains can end as some lake effect snow Sunday morning in Northeast OH, and even a few wet snowflakes farther south. Warmer air comes in with the most intense rains through the day Saturday, and we wont rule out a thunderstorm in spots, although the best chances stay farther west. Combined we see rain totals of .25”-1” with 100% coverage over the state. There is an outside chance of some rain totals over 1”, but those will be highly localized.Colder for the balance of Sunday  with clouds giving way to some late day sun. Then we look to be dry for the rest of the week as well, Monday through the following Saturday. However, temperatures for this dry period are going yo-yo back and forth a good little bit. We stay reletively cold on Monday, then see moderating temps Tuesday. A strong canadian high dives in for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, taking temps back below normal again, before we moderate for next Saturday. So, it will be a rollercoaster ride, even though we expect some good sun through the period.In the extended period, we see a nice front pushing in for Sunday the 26th. The heart of this system will pass by to the south, but we see some moisture able to surge north into the state, perhaps all the way up to I-70. This can bring .1”-.5” with coverage at 60%. Then we are dry for the 27th through the 30th. We have another cold front lining up for December 1st, but precipitation totals do not look too impressive at this time, perhaps a .25” or less. However, precipitation could be either rain or wet snow. Stay tuned.last_img read more
