Southerland was declared ineligible before Syracuse’s game against Villanova at the Carrier Dome on Jan. 12. The suspension was related to an academic issue. Southerland missed the next six games. Finally, on Friday, Southerland had the chance to appeal the suspension in front of an SU judicial review board, and a day later, found out he won the appeal.After Saturday’s game, head coach Jim Boeheim said the process Southerland had to go through was the same as it would be for any other student. The fact that he was an athlete didn’t matter. “It took a long time to prove that, unfortunately,” Boeheim said. “That’s the way the system works. He had to go through it, just like anybody else. It wasn’t resolved until Friday. That’s the normal process.”While he couldn’t play in any games, Southerland continued to work hard in practice. Boeheim said the coaches put an emphasis on working Southerland hard in practice to keep him fresh. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDuring Southerland’s absence, Syracuse went 4-2. At times, the Orange’s offense was cold. Southerland wasn’t there to knock down big shots from the arc. Even more so, Syracuse’s bench took a significant hit. The whole time, though, Southerland tried to stay positive. He said he was confident he would end up back on the court this season. “It was tough, but at the same time, you’ve just got to stay mentally focused. You can still be a leader out there off the court,” Southerland said. “There’s a lot of bumps during the road, but you’ve just got to handle them. You can’t back away from them.”Boeheim said it’s tough for any player to miss playing time, let alone six games. This is Southerland’s final season with Syracuse. Being off of the court, missing games, was a difficult stretch for both Southerland and the team. About one month and six games later, Southerland’s back. “It’s life and death, that game. Missing one game, missing one half, is huge for players,” Boeheim said. “You never get that back. He had to go through the process and he did. He hung in there through it.” Comments Published on February 10, 2013 at 9:38 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_iseman Facebook Twitter Google+
It turns out there may have been no winners in the “Suck for the Duck” sweepstakes.With Marcus Mariota planted firmly on the Titans’ bench, it looks like the former Oregon Duck’s career in the Music City is hitting a sour note and will soon come to a screeching halt. Ryan Tannehill is entrenched as Tennessee’s starting quarterback, and it looks as though that will be the case heading into the 2020 season and beyond. In 2018, he dealt with an elbow injury and a neck stinger that forced him to sit out two games.In 2017, he dealt with a hamstring injury that sidelined him for a game.In 2016, Mariota broke his fibula in Week 16 vs. the Jaguars.In 2015, he dealt with a sprain MCL in his right knee on two different occasions, with the second sprain ending his season prematurely.Marcus Mariota contract, free agencyMariota was a free agent following the 2019 season, the final season on his rookie deal, and left the team that drafted him for the Las Vegas Raiders.The former No. 2 overall pick hit free agency the same time as the only player who went before him in the 2015 NFL Draft, Jameis Winston.There was, obviously, a lot of gray area as to what Mariota could make on the open market. The Raiders likely view him as a salvageable starting quarterback, or at minimum, a top-quality backup? Mariota will be 27 this upcoming season, so chances are this will be his last real shot at becoming a starter or prove his worth in the league. Whether or not he seizes that opportunity with the Raiders remains to be seen. The curious case of Marcus Mariota doesn’t just boil down to the player: it’s a 101 course in “How Not To Treat Your Franchise QB.” While a lot of blame does fall on Mariota’s shoulders, the instability of the Titans during his tenure plays into it a fair amount.Here’s what happened to the once-promising career of Mariota, from the promise of his rookie season to his 2019 struggles and subsequent benching,TANNEHILL TIMELINE:How new contract with Titans led to a career revival for ex-Dolphins QB What happened to Marcus Mariota?There’s a lot that went into Mariota’s benching, but what happened to Marcus Mariota can be melted down into three words: inconsistency, injuries and ineffectiveness.Inconsistency: Not solely inconsistency with the player, but the organization, as well. The start of Mariota’s NFL career mirrors that of former 49ers QB Alex Smith: both dealt with different offensive coordinators in their first five seasons of the league. That’s tough for any young QB coming into the league, but especially for Mariota: he dealt with different three head coaches (Ken Wisenhunt, Mike Mularkey, Mike Vrabel) and four different offensive coordinators in his first five seasons at the helm. That much turnover around the QB can wreak havoc on a player’s progression. That’s not to say that Mariota is absolved of his sins. While a promising 2016 season painted a picture of progression, he reverted to his turnover-prone ways in 2017, an issue he hadn’t had in the college ranks.Injuries: In every season except 2019, Mariota has dealt with some sort of injury that has forced him to miss time. While he’s still played in a possible 56 games out of 64 in the four seasons leading up to 2019, there’s not much room for doubt that some of his injuries have gotten in the way of his progression, potentially breaking his confidence along the way.Ineffectiveness: Since his promising 2016 season during which he threw 26 touchdowns to just nine interceptions, Mariota’s production has gone downhill. He threw 13 touchdowns to 15 interceptions in 2017, and set a career-low in TD passes in 2018 with just 11. Despite having the best offensive unit of his career around him in 2019, he threw seven touchdowns in six games, with two, three-score performances in Week 1 and Week 4.Along with that, Mariota’s indecisiveness and confidence seemed to be completely shattered and his pocket awareness took a nosedive, as well: while the Titans’ offensive line was underperforming, Mariota was still sacked 25 times in his first six games.

Throughout his career, though, Mariota has dealt with a bevvy of injuries:
DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa schools are introducing new physical education standards this school year that provide teachers with a framework to strengthen instruction from kindergarten through 12th grade.Stacy Frelund, government relations director for the American Heart Association of Iowa, says the organization was on the team that made the recommendations.She notes that Iowa has the 10th highest obesity rate for youths ages 10 to 17.She says that’s likely because screen time by children is creeping up – from phones, to social media, to online gaming – making the new health and physical education guidelines more important than ever.“Physical education classes are classes, and they have curriculum just like science and math classes do,” she stresses. “You can’t just go out and play dodgeball for an hour. It gets into mental health, even, and how to adapt PE to kids that might have challenges.”The American Heart Association recommends parents and children adopt the daily ‘5-2-1-0′ rule: five fruits and vegetables per day, two hours of screen time, one hour of exercise and zero sugar-sweetened beverages.Iowa’s new health and physical education standards, which are optional for schools, outline what a student should know and be able to do at each grade level.Frelund says like adults, children who exercise report reduced anxiety, better sleep and improved blood sugar control.She notes there also are long-term cognitive benefits.“Kids’ health is so important that it shouldn’t be something that we forget and make last on the list,” she stresses. “Especially when you look at how physical activity and physical education can really impact, like, kids’ brains and the test scores and how they’re doing in some of their other classwork.”The American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge teaches elementary school students the importance of keeping their heart healthy by participating in basketball, dance, obstacle course activity and jumping rope.Funds raised through the program support scientific research and outreach programs.
0Shares0000Victor Wanyama wheels away in celebrating his goal against Liverpool on February 4, 2018.NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 5- Harambee Stars captain and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama has disclosed in the aftermath of his wonder-strike against Liverpool on Sunday, that his teammates had told him never to shoot again after some below per efforts.Wanyama came on for Moussa Dembele in the 79th minute of Spurs’ 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Anfield and with barely two minutes on the pitch struck a worldie from almost 25 yards out to pull his side level at 1-1. “I have had several shots at goal since I returned and some of the lads were not happy and they said that I should not be shooting again but i said to myself that I would continue shooting and one day it will get into the back of the net and that day was today,” Wanyama joked speaking to Spurs’ official TV stream after the game.The sentiments were shared by striker Harry Kane who was at the centre of the game, missing a penalty and scoring a late one as he joined an elite list of Premier League players to reach 100 league goals.“He’s proved us wrong! He had a few shots recently and they have all gone to the corner flag and we told him not to shoot. But fair play to him he stuck it for us today and he pulled us one of the best strikes I have seen. I probably haven’t seen a better one in my career to be fair,” the English forward who described the goal as a ‘wonder strike’ further opined.Harry Kane wheels away in celebrating his goal against Liverpool on February 4, 2018 with Victor Wanyama in the background. PHOTO/Daily MailWanyama has had a slow return to the Spurs first team since fully recovering from a knee injury that put him out for a period of four months and is yet to be in the starting 11 for a Premier League match.The midfield workhorse said he was delighted to play a positive role for the side, adding that getting a point away to Liverpool is no mean task.“I thought in the second half we played much better. We had a feeling we would score but unfortunately we didn’t until I came on and I got a goal. Sometimes it’s difficult; you can shoot and don’t score. I am happy I scored today to help the team,”“It is a difficult place to come because they always give us a tough time but today we got better and showed what we can do and I think we deserved to win today,” the midfielder further stated.The result sees Spurs remain at fifth on the English Premier League table, four ahead of North London rivals Arsenal who they face on Saturday in Wembley.Before then, Spurs will take on League Two side Newport County in the FA Cup on Wednesday and Wanyama might start the match.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

28 July 2014The Springbok Women’s Rugby team departed from Johannesburg on Sunday, bound for the IRB Women’s Rugby World Cup in France, with high hopes of achieving their best ever finish in the international spectacle following months of preparation and specialist skills training.The World Cup, which will be hosted in Marcoussis outside of Paris, will mark the third successive appearance in the tournament for the South African national women’s team.They have been drawn in a very challenging pool that also includes Australia, hosts and Six Nations champions France and Wales.‘Pleased’“We have been working very hard in the last few months on our conditioning, technique and our game plan and I am pleased to see the level at which the team is now,” Springbok Women’s coach Lawrence Sephaka said in a statement.“We are also pleased that the players had the opportunity to test themselves against the Nomads and France on the warm-up tour, so I am satisfied with our preparation. It is now time for the players to show us what they are capable of against quality opposition.”However, given the Springbok Women’s tough pool and the team’s previous results in the World Cup – they finished 12th in the 2006 World Cup and 10th in the 2010 World Cup – Sephaka said their main goal was to record their best finish yet in the tournament.‘A tough pool’“Ideally we would like to advance to the playoff stages of the Women’s World Cup,” he explained, “but we have to be realistic about our expectations as we have been drawn in a tough pool and we do not play as often as many other teams participating in the competition because women’s rugby is still developing steadily in South Africa.“But we believe in our abilities and we have no doubt that we have made significant progress as a team since the 2010 World Cup, so the most important thing for us is to show that in our performances and hopefully see the results in our position at the conclusion of the tournament.”Television broadcastThe team’s first two pool matches against Australia and France will be broadcast live on SuperSport 1 on DSTV. Their final pool game against Wales can be viewed on live streaming on the IRB Women’s World Cup website www.rwcwomens.comA R2.3-million grant from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund made the Springbok Women’s Rugby team’s participation in the tournament possible.Springbok Women’s 2014 WRWC Pool FixturesFriday, 1 Aug: SA vs Australia, MarcoussisTuesday, 5 Aug: SA vs France, MarcoussisSaturday, 9 Aug: SA vs Wales, MarcoussisSAinfo reporter
