  • Joe Mixon: ‘It Felt Like a Dude Hit Me’

    first_imgThe Oklahoman got a copy of the police report from the Joe Mixon-Mia Molitor fight from 2014, and I’m not real sure I believe what Joe Mixon had to say here.“And after that, like, I was so shocked, because she hit me so hard,” said Mixon. “It felt like a dude hit me. And after that, like, my face went boom, my reaction was just right there.”So yeah. I just don’t see how this feels like a dude hit you. I know you’re sort of caught up in the moment or whatever, and I am one of those people who loathes getting touched in the face/neck.But the self-defense card Mixon and his lawyers have been playing for the past two years got burned up when the video came out. They act like he was getting cornered by someone who looked like Shawn Willis and not open-hand slapped by a petite college student.Mixon also noted that he was called a racial slur by the woman’s gay friend even though later he noted that the slur was not said to him but about him. The whole thing is a complete mess, and I hate that it ever happened.Here is Joe Mixon punching a woman. Hope it was worth the Ws, OU. https://t.co/snveBtubg1 pic.twitter.com/Sarv9FKdnQ— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) December 16, 2016There are 2017 implications, too. I think Mixon is more likely to return to Norman now that this is out. I think he needs as much space from the video as possible before the NFL Draft.Here’s draft expert Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.Since the release of the video, general managers around the league have told those close to Mixon he won’t get drafted, there’s a possibility he won’t be signed as a free agent and he may not even receive an invitation to the combine should he declare for the draft.That’s a stunner. So not only do we have to live with the fact that Mike Gundy did the right thing (with Tyreek) and Bob Stoops did not, but now we might have to live with another year of Mixon’s Bedlam destruction.

  • Three Stats For The Alamo Bowl: Who Gets Explosive Plays?

    first_imgColorado1.15 per game0.85 per game + 0.54 per game       (24th in FBS) Opportunities are going to be important in a game where a strong secondary could limit a high flying offense and an offense dependent on an injury prone quarterback running the ball effectively.With two ball-hawking defenses, momentum will hang in the balance at times and if the Pokes can win this battle, they’ve won 28 out of the last 30 games that they haven’t lost a turnover.Who Gets Explosive Plays?A good indicator of how smoothly an offense functions is explosive plays (over ten yards), as the likelihood of going 70 yards is awful difficult without those kinds of plays. And the Pokes have done a really good job of that, averaging more than 18 plays of 10+ yards per game (no. 17 in FBS). The steady Buffalo attack is middle of the road averaging just below 14.5 plays of 10+ yards per game.  A big reason for OSU’s advantage is a guy who can do stuff like this:So how good are the Alamo opponents at stringing together long drives? The Pokes are No. 3 in the country at getting points on drives of 80+ yards while the Buffs stall out far more often earning them 94th in the FBS in points per long drive. Just watching their highlights, you can see most good things for them aren’t longer plays but shorter stuff:The Colorado offense has been capable, putting up 446 yards per game. But if Zach Sinor gets to pinning the Buffs deep in their own territory, don’t count on CU quarterback Sefo Liufau to lead them on a long, fruitful drive like we’ve grown accustomed to in Boone Pickens Stadium… And will get to enjoy next year! InterceptionsFumblesTurnover Margin The Pokes do a better job of holding on to the ball (*crosses his fingers that Neutral Site Mason is more like Home Mason than Road Mason*) and I think that’s ultimately what gives OSU the edge here. The Buffs have a lauded secondary and Coach Gundy talked about how six of their guys are being looked at by the NFL, but that doesn’t intimidate the Cowboy offense.A couple of years ago the Pokes went toe-to-toe with a prolific defense featuring numerous future NFL guys in the Cactus Bowl against Washington, but how this strength-vs-strength match up turns out will no doubt be shaping in the outcome. The Cowboy secondary isn’t too bad itself: OSU1.08 per game0.92 per game + 0.83 per game        (11th in FBS) The Pac-12 South Champs are a different type of team than the Pokes have seen in 2016, let’s take a look at some key numbers that are likely to shape the outcome.Keep the Buffs below 100 Yards RushingThe most apparent common denominator in all three of Colorado’s losses is not being able to top 100 yards rushing. Otherwise stated, Colorado is undefeated when they rush for 100+ yards and slowing the ground game severely stunts the offense. The Pokes are giving up an average of 204 yards per game in their “bend don’t break” scheme facing potent Big 12 offenses and it’ll be intriguing to see how the Cowboys fare against a less potent Pac-12 unit.Coach Gundy is 32-5 when OSU holds teams below 100 yards and he’ll need guys like Chad Whitener, Mote Maile and DQ Osborne to step up and do a solid job stuffing the run up the middle. If Glenn Spencer’s front seven can keep the Buffs rushing attack at bay, the Cowboys will have a great shot at getting to that magical 10th win. Especially when you’ve got a guy who can hit like this:https://twitter.com/SajanP97/status/805129822800379904Top 25 Turnover Margin BattleThe Pokes are one of the best in the nation at turning teams over (it’s so fun that we can repeat that phrase about our basketball team!), but tonight will feature two teams that are great at it (both averaging two per game).

The Buffs QB is twice as likely to throw a pick as he has six interceptions on 290 attempts (an interceptions every 48 throws).With a peaking run game (6.43 yards per carry since November 1st), the Buffs will have to fill up the box to slow down a freshman All-American and a steamroller named Chris Carson.

  • Report: Man City 1 Chelsea 0

    first_imgManchester City 1 Chelsea 0: Bernardo Silva clinches one-sided triumph Tom Webber Last updated 1 year ago 01:52 5/3/2018 BernardoSilva - cropped Getty Images Chelsea were completely overrun by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, with Pep Guardiola’s side taking a huge step towards the title. Manchester City moved just four wins away from claiming the Premier League title as Bernardo Silva clinched a one-sided 1-0 victory over defending champions Chelsea.In a thoroughly commanding performance from a City team closing in on their first league triumph since 2013-14, Bernardo Silva’s strike enabled them to open up an 18-point lead at the summit, though Manchester United can close the gap to 16 by winning at Crystal Palace on Monday.Antonio Conte dropped Alvaro Morata to the bench as he opted against fielding a recognised striker and false nine Eden Hazard was starved of service as they failed to register a shot on target in the match, the imperious City completely overrunning them.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Chelsea made it to the break without conceding, but an error from Andreas Christensen was seized upon by Sergio Aguero – whose wait for his 200th City goal continues – and David Silva crossed for Bernardo Silva to open the scoring 33 seconds after half-time.It was enough to inflict a third successive Premier League away loss on the Blues for the first time since March 2013, damaging their Champions League hopes by leaving them five points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.For City, who rested captain Vincent Kompany, it capped a phenomenal eight days in which they recorded back-to-back 3-0 victories over Arsenal, the first coming in the EFL Cup final at Wembley to give Pep Guardiola his first piece of silverware in English football.Unshakeable spirit! pic.twitter.com/9WnO6KBdK4— Manchester City (@ManCity) March 4, 2018That trophy was paraded in front of the fans prior to kick-off and City looked set to produce a similarly dominant performance as they controlled possession and pressed Chelsea high from the off.An important block by Antonio Rudiger stopped Leroy Sane guiding David Silva’s cross home, before Aguero was unable to get a shot away after a loose pass in the box from Cesc Fabregas, selected in place of the ill N’Golo Kante, gifted the hosts the ball in a dangerous area.Chelsea could barely get out of their own half and a piercing Sane run into the area was eventually halted, though the ball ran on to Bernardo Silva, who curled a sweet left-footed effort onto the roof of the net in the 20th minute.Sane produced a magnificent touch to bring down Kevin De Bruyne’s delivery at the back post, but his thumping shot across goal was blocked on the line by Cesar Azpilicueta and Thibaut Courtois dived on the loose ball.Chelsea managed to keep City out for the remainder of the first half but their clean sheet was gone within a minute of the restart. Christensen’s failure to clear a long pass from Ilkay Gundogan enabled David Silva to cross for Bernardo Silva to stab past Courtois at the back post.2 – Bernardo Silva has scored in back-to-back league appearances for the first time since May 2017 at Monaco. Shine.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 4, 2018Victor Moses sliced a rare opportunity wildly off target after Chelsea’s best move of the match in the 54th minute, but Courtois had to be alert to bat away a driven attempt from David Silva moments later.Conte introduced Olivier Giroud in place of Willian in the 78th minute, but they did not threaten until Marcos Alonso volleyed wide in stoppage time as City provided another example of why they are the Premier League’s leading side. Key Opta stats:- Manchester City will end the day 18 points clear at the top of the Premier League, the biggest lead ahead of second place since March 2006, when Chelsea were 18 points ahead of Manchester United.- Chelsea have lost four consecutive away matches in all competitions for the first time since January 2003, when they lost to Man Utd (twice), Leeds and Arsenal.- Pep Guardiola is only the second manager to complete a league double over Antonio Conte, after Delio Rossi (for Sampdoria in 2012-13).- The Blues had just seven shots against Man City in their two Premier League meetings this season, while facing 30 themselves. read morelast_img read more

  • Report: Calvin Bundage Absent on Trip to Corvallis

  • Grades: Oklahoma State’s Playmaking Trio Was Tremendous in Game 1

Saturday can’t get here fast enough.Oklahoma State’s offense throttled Oregon State late Friday night, resulting in a 52-36 Cowboy victory. It wasn’t just that the Cowboys did it, it was how they did. It was one of the more exciting outings in recent years, and it left me pumped to watch it in living color Saturday, even if it is against McNeese State. Here are some grades from the Cowboys’ game with the Beavers.The Trio: A+I think enough orange Kool-Aid has been pumped into Spencer Sanders, Chuba Hubbard and Tylan Wallace for one week, so I’ll just raise one more collective glass.It was an Oklahoma State fan’s dream to see three highly acclaimed skill players mesh as well as they in Corvallis. Whether it was the 92 yards and two touchdowns Sanders and Wallace connected for or the 346 combined rushing yards Hubbard and Sanders shared, the trio ensured excitement for what’s to come.The O-Line: A+Go ahead and peep this hole the OSU offensive line created in its first game under Charlie Dickey.Sanders was sacked one time for two yards, and the Beavers had one quarterback hurry, but that was nothing compared to all the damage the Cowboys dealt behind the outstanding O-line play.Sean Gleeson’s Debut: A+I usually try to stay away from coaches in my grades because in most cases, it’s hard to tell what is actually a coach’s doing, but Sean Gleeson’s first game at the FBS level was superb.The Cowboys had 12 drives Friday, eight ended in scores, two ended because the halves did and only two times did Tom Hutton get to punt.Mike Gundy has said that Gleeson is learning OSU’s offense instead of OSU learning Gleeson’s, and after the game Gundy said the differences in how OSU looked against Oregon State was more personnel driven compared to last year. But OSU looked sharp, whether it was pulling both its guards on a run play or ripping a quick pass to the sideline for Wallace to catch and fly.The Defense: COregon State’s first drive was not great for Jim Knowles’ bunch.In fewer than two minutes, the lowly Beavers went 70 yards on six plays, and you could almost feel the entire metropolis of Stillwater, USA, exhale in disappointment.But it’s important to note that was a lot of the Cowboy defenders’ first times starting a college football game, including the entire defensive line. The group settled in and forced three straight three-and-outs on Oregon State’s third, fourth and five drives of the game.It wasn’t a stellar outing, but there were enough bright spots to give hope for a little while longer.The Excitement: A++Remember when I said my first grade was the final glass of orange Kool-Aid to raise, I lied.Holy smokes that was fun to watch. The first half Friday night seemed to fly by. I’m not sure if that was how it actually was going or if it was just that I was having so much fun watching OSU’s offense run all around the field.The OSU offense really looks like it can make opposing teams pick their poison. Want to put safeties back deep to cover over Tylan Wallace? Well here is Chuba Hubbard and Spencer Sanders gashing your front seven. Want to play close to the line to attempt to shut that athletic backfield down, have fun isolating Wallace.last_img read more

When I transferred to Leicester, I played against Barcelona, and I scored another two goals.”Next game, anything can happen. Possibly, I’m going to score another two goals.”Messi missed a penalty in his side’s 1-1 draw with Iceland and cut a disconsolate figure in their 3-0 loss to Croatia in Nizhny Novgorod on Thursday.Ahmed Musa Nigeria Iceland World CupMusa now hopes he can outshine the five-time Ballon d’Or winner in their final group game and help Nigeria reach the last 16.”Scoring against Argentina is not that difficult for me,” he said. “Any game, I take it step by step.

    first_imgTORONTO – Sun Life Financial Inc. has reported that its profits rose in the latest quarter, beating market expectations due in part to growth in its wealth businesses.The Toronto-based company, primarily known for its life insurance, reported net income for the quarter ended Dec. 31 of $641 million or $1.05 per share, compared to $560 million or $0.91 per share in the same quarter last year.Thomson Reuters analysts had estimated $634 million in net income or $1.02 per share.CEO Dean Connor says Sun Life’s fourth quarter capped off a year of improved momentum in a number of fronts, including the launch of new digital offerings in Canada and the continued building out its wealth and asset management businesses.Sun Life’s revenue was $8.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to $2.4 billion last year.The insurer says the increase was largely due to the decreases in interest rates in the fourth quarter in 2017 compared to increases in interest rates in the same period in 2016.Companies in this story (TSX:SLF)last_img read more
