Ohio State’s Urban Meyer Is (Kind Of) Stranded At Sea

first_imgUrban Meyer was out to sea outside of Tampa Bay.The past couple of months have gone so well for Urban Meyer and his Ohio State football program, there was bound to be a hiccup. One has occurred in the form of some heavy fog. Meyer and many of OSU’s most-iconic figures are currently on the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer, which benefits the Urban and Shelley Meyer Fund for Cancer Research and the Ohio State cancer center. Their cruise ship is currently stuck at sea, though, due to some heavy fog that has closed Port Tampa Bay. The cruise ship is in fine condition and no one is in any danger, but those on board are being forced to spend an extra day at sea. The cruise was due back on Monday. Passengers on @BuckeyeCruise getting extra day of warmth. Fog prevented them from docking today, expected tomorrow pic.twitter.com/BUn67P8GdM— WSYX ABC 6 (@wsyx6) February 24, 2015From The Tampa Tribune‘s report: Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer and other Buckeye faithful on a charity cruise out of Tampa are getting an extra day at sea — albeit shrouded in fog.Heavy sea fog has forced the closure of Port Tampa Bay this morning, stranding several arriving cargo and cruise ships in the Gulf. A dense fog advisory is in effect for Tampa Bay waters until 1 p.m. today.Perhaps one of the many shiny trophies Meyer has won could serve as a sort of signal as the cruise ship attempts to come to land. [Tampa Tribune]last_img read more

UNC Players Reportedly Said Louisville Gave In “Without A Fight” During ACC Tournament

first_imgUNC playing Louisville in ACC Tournament.Louisville’s trip to the ACC men’s basketball trip was a short one, as the Cardinals went one-and-done in Greensboro, losing to North Carolina this afternoon, 70-60. It was a frustrating afternoon on Tobacco Road for Rick Pitino’s squad, as it shot a mere 34 percent from the field, went 4-for-22 from the 3-point line and had more turnovers than assists. The Cardinals were still in it late, though, trailing by four with roughly a minute to play, but a couple bad shots led to a comfortable UNC victory. Following the game, Andy Sweeney of ESPN 680 in Louisville stated that Tar Heels’ players said Louisville’s players gave in “without a fight.” UNC players saying Louisville gave in “without a fight”. Wow. That’s a major statement.— Andy Sweeney (@TheOnlySweeney) March 12, 2015We’re unaware which UNC players said that, but you rarely hear players criticize players on another team like the Tar Heels reportedly did. With the loss, Louisville will enter the NCAA Tournament at 24-8 and a probable No. 4 to No. 6 seed.last_img read more

City less potent and more fragile but Pep stands firm

first_imgxG map for Manchester City – Evertonso… uh… city aren’t back just quite yet maybe pic.twitter.com/5JOKnfnCyW — Caley Graphics (@Caley_graphics) December 15, 2018 In City’s 2-0 defeat at Chelsea, they actually had better chances than the Londoners, 1.0 to 0.6, showing that it works both ways and that City, even in their rough patch, have generally managed to create more chances than their opposition.Yet the 3-1 victory against Everton comes out as a 1.5 – 2.0 loss, chances-wise, suggesting Everton had more and better quality opportunities than City. If that is allowed to happen on a regular basis, then defeats are inevitable.In terms of good, old-fashioned shots on target, City’s lowest tallies have come against Liverpool (2), Chelsea (4), Leicester (4), Crystal Palace (5), Everton (5) and Manchester United (5). Barring the Liverpool game, all of those have been since the West Ham clash that Guardiola has used as a yard-stick.Injuries to key players have, of course, had a bearing on these figures and City’s results, especially in the past fortnight, but Guardiola has signalled in recent weeks that he knows his team have been offering up too many chances, and not scoring as many as they should do.With Liverpool visiting on Thursday, that will be a major concern for Guardiola. Not that he admitted to it in his press conference on Wednesday.“We concede few. That is the feeling I have,” he insisted. “The boxes are the most important thing. The last games we concede more goals than usual but the chances we concede they are not too much.”He has a point, too, given there was an element of smash-and-grab about Crystal Palace and Leicester’s victories, even if City were well below their best.Yet he must know, deep down, that the overall trend is that his side have been more open than usual – after all, he admitted as much as recently as Saturday.And Ilkay Gundogan’s recent interview suggests it is a hot topic behind closed doors.“Sometimes we made it too easy for our opponents to go through and we left them too many open spaces,” he told SID this week.City quoteThere were signs of that even before City lost at Chelsea.An analysis by Football Whispers highlights that between September and November, City’s opponents were enjoying more moves of five or more passes per game, more passing moves reaching the final third and more moves starting in the defensive third to reach five or more passes, compared to data from January to September.It is also highlighted that Fernandinho averaged five tackles and interceptions per game compared to just 1.8 per game over the same periods.At least when Fernandinho is fit City have somebody who can put out the fires (which helps explain their issues when he was missing over Christmas).But he does have more work to do for a reason, and the data suggests that City are either not pressing as much as they did last season, that they are not as effective as they were, or that opposition teams have learned how to cope with it slightly better.City quoteIt should be pointed out that that approach is still more than good enough to challenge for the title, perhaps even to win it, even if City are not quite as formidable as last season.After all, City were top of the Premier League, despite their relative struggles, before injuries to Fernandinho and David Silva combined with Kevin De Bruyne’s lack of fitness over Christmas.The biggest problem for City is Liverpool, in that the Reds have punished their recent slip-ups and appear best-placed to do so in a one-off match. If the Blues were facing almost any other Premier League team on Thursday they could be confident of getting back on track in the title race, even if they are sloppy in front of goal and slightly more open in defence.But not against Jurgen Klopp’s side.Guardiola has acknowledged as much but he is never one to go into detail regarding his side’s pitfalls in public. And this week he came out fighting.“It is Liverpool, but we can beat them,” he insisted. “I know today nobody trusts us, nobody makes one coin for us, but it is what it is.“We are going to focus on what we have to do to win the game. Everyone is talking about if we lose, but what happens if we win?”City fans will hope their manager has something up his sleeve. Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the web Both before and after Manchester City’s must-win game at Southampton on Sunday, Pep Guardiola made reference to a seemingly routine 4-0 victory at West Ham back in November.“We didn’t dominate,” he said on Sunday. “They had three or four chances one-on-one.” On Saturday he said: “They created more chances than us. We were not perfect. After the international break, this can happen, but this month was not so full as it was at the beginning of the season.”By “so full”, Guardiola presumably means City have not been as solid, as structured, as they were in the early months of the season.

They have gone from a stage when City had only conceded five league goals and Guardiola was highlighting how opposition were barely having a shot on target, to no clean sheets in 10 games in all competitions.Guardiola said on Tuesday in defence of his side that “always there is a consequence of the chances we create and the chances we lose”, yet both have worsened in the past month or so, using the ‘expected goals’ (xG) metric.These statistics, which rate the quality of chances, show that City’s recent matches have been closer battles than usual. re who should be favs #LFC #MCFC .

For this, it is good to have another game straight away.”The defeat against Guingamp cannot influence my team selection, though. [It looked like] we did not want to play that game, but I understand the players.”We cannot play 60 matches with the same emotional state, the same concentration.

Robertson hopes Liverpool return to full-strength quickly

Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Liverpool have been without a number of key superstars during their pre-season campaign, including Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.All three men are expected to report for training on Monday following extended breaks after international tournaments, with Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri also set to re-join the squad this week having recovered from injury.Sadio Mane will return slightly later after reaching the Africa Cup of Nations final with Senegal on July 19 and Robertson is eager for the group to reunite in full before the start of the new season. Speaking after the defeat to Napoli, the 25-year-old told Liverpool’s official website: “The lads coming back, even if they don’t play, it gives you a lift when they train and with the way they go about their business.“It doesn’t matter if they play on Wednesday or not, that’s completely up to the manager three days in, but that’s irrelevant: if they’re back in training and back around the place then it makes a difference. “Mo and Bobby are two of our main men and Alisson was magnificent last season. They are huge characters in the changing room as well so that’ll be massive for us, and then Sadio will come back the following week. “Once we get the whole team back together, and I think Shaq and Naby aren’t far off too, they’re players that are familiar around the set-up and around the system and that’s what we need. The quicker we get all of us back together then hopefully the better. “But it’s not anyone else’s fault, the young lads or whatever who have come in, we’ve all not been good enough and maybe Bobby and Mo and people like that will give us the lift that we need. Hopefully, that does happen.”Klopp has had the chance to blood some of the younger members of his squad in the absence of household names, with the likes of Rhian Brewster and Harry Wilson given the chance to prove themselves.Liverpool’s newest signing Harvey Elliott was granted his debut against Napoli and Robertson praised the 16-year-old before highlighting the overall impact the academy stars have had this summer.“They’ve been great [throughout pre-season] and when young kids come in it’s a breath of fresh air sometimes,” the Scotland international added.“Harvey Elliott only signed this morning and he’s come on and done magnificently for 15 minutes. He’s only 16 years old and I think people forget that. “Rhian’s had a great pre-season, Harry Wilson looked good when he came on today. Look, we need these players to push us and they need to push us in every single position and if they do that then the gaffer will give them the chance. “Fair play to them, when they came on and we were all off then it did look better. I was watching and it looked a lot better than we felt in the first half so credit to them. “But now it’s up to us to put in the performances, we’ve got one more game before it gets competitive and we need to get up to speed now.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

(Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty Images)Wisconsin had a disappointing 2018 season, which was capped off with a rivalry game loss to Minnesota. That said, the Badgers will still head to a bowl game in December.The Badgers finished with a lackluster 7-5 record – which included losses to BYU, Michigan, Northwestern, Penn State and the aforementioned Golden Gophers. As such, they’re behind a number of teams in pecking order for bowl position.Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Northwestern and potentially Iowa will be chosen over the Badgers. So where is Wisconsin likely headed?ESPN’s analysts do not agree on where Wisconsin could head. Kyle Bonagura has the Badgers taking on Cal in the Redbox Bowl in Santa Clara. Mitch Sherman has them taking on Vanderbilt in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl in Jacksonville.While neither holds the prestige of a New Year’s Six game, it’s still a big deal. Wisconsin will head into the 2019 campaign with some momentum if it can win its bowl contest.Wisconsin finished in a tie for second place in the Big Ten West this past season with a 5-4 mark.

First at the European influenced MidCity Cuisine, then at Table 1280, before opening his first restaurant, Shauns, a casual neighborhood bistro near historic Inman Park. After Shauns, Doty opened YEAH! BURGER in 2010, followed by Bantam & Biddy—the beloved (and affordable) rotisserie chicken restaurant—in the fall of 2012.This month, Chick-A-Biddy, Doty’s latest restaurant and the sister restaurant of Batnam & Biddy, opened to the public. Doty’s most recent endeavor holds true to his policy of creating affordable, quality dining. However, where Bantam & Biddy taps into traditional Southern cooking, Chick-A-Biddy pushes the envelope a littler further.“This [Chick-A-Biddy] is more artistic and creatively driven,” says Doty. “The menu is simple; it’s more contemporary. In addition to gluten-free fried chicken, we have a lot of salads with unique ingredients and have incorporated plenty of local vendors into the items and dishes that we serve. It’s table service that’s informal. It’s a non-pretentious environment.”What Doty is aiming to achieve with Chick-A-Biddy is a restaurant that serves “chef driven” products (basically high quality dishes), but at a price point that is affordable for someone who is just embarking on their own culinary education. That’s why you will find Warm Kale Salad ($10) butting up against Wood Grilled Fish Tacos ($10), a Blackened Chicken Burger ($10), a Black Bean Quinoa Burger ($10), and gluten-free fried Chicken ($12 for a quarter, $15 for a half) that comes either hot or mild.Though the menu’s offerings are mainly gluten-free, Chick-A-Biddy is not a “health food” restaurant. “I don’t even advocate a low-fat diet,” Mr. Doty explains. “The problem in our society is highly processed foods and foods that contain high-fructose corn syrup. We want to make unprocessed, fresh, forward-looking food that anyone can stop in and buy.” Doty’s own son cannot eat gluten, so the desire to remove that ingredient from his menu stems from a place of personal passion, not just professional.Even though Doty has traveled and cooked all over the world, opened a variety of restaurants, and can wax poetic on the philosophies and importance of using local ingredients (“I won’t use any lettuce that is pre-washed”), in the end, his message remains undeniably fundamental.“Now that I am a little older, all I want to do is apply all the things I’ve learned and accumulated into something that I think is important. And what I think is important is that people should be able to get a quality meal at an affordable price. Are Fermented Pizzas a Trend to Watch? We Asked a Pro to Find Out last_img read more

Hit the surf with Howler Brothers

first_img A Quick Overview of the Sustainable Adidas Outdoor and Five Ten Line Essentials Save the Environment in Style: Taylor Stitch Makes New Apparel from Old Garments Ably Apparel Clothing Is Almost Impossible to Get Wet or Dirty Editors’ Recommendations We are seeing a wet, cold spring here in the Rockies, but that hasn’t stopped us from daydreaming about warmer days spent on the beach with a fly rod in our hands. Whether you’re a snowbird who escapes to warmer climates for the surf, or a dedicated fisherman jonesing for some bonefish, having the right gear for coastal adventures is important. Our friends over at Howler Brothers teamed up with Smith Optics this season to put together a limited edition set of sunglasses and apparel. If you’re looking for the perfect island living collection, this is it.Related: Surf Grooming Kit Noir | Recycled Fishnet SunglassesSmith x Howler BrothersSmith and Howler product designers all seem to be obsessed with summer leisure, and you’ll get no complaints from us. The San Gabriel Shirt ($69) was the first piece to jump out at us. The cotton/poly blend is great for days when you’ll be in and out of the water, and the rising sun pattern is a good reminder to get that dawn patrol on your board in. If you’re looking for more casual though, The Smith x Howler Tee ($30) and Snapback ($29) are prefectly at home on your SUP or cruising for cheap beer after a day on the water.SunglassesThe big story of the summer for Smith is their commitment to a new line of fishing specific sunglasses (more on that soon). In keeping with that focus, Howler Brothers put together a pair of limited edition Guide’s Choice Sunglasses ($249). Featuring Smith’s excellent polarizing and Chromapop treatments, this limited edition colorway tackles early morning sessions on the water and late afternoon hikes when you sneak away from the office equally well.Howler Brothers Spring LineOf course, if you’re looking something a little more for the traditional waterman, Howler Brothers’ 2016 spring lineup is built for serious fisherman and surfers and tourists alike. We’ve been rocking the Waterman’s Work Shorts ($69) on post-work SUP workouts for a few weeks now, and they’ve replaced every other pair of boardshorts we own. They are quick drying, and the double layer fabric on the front is especially nice when working on rocky shores and with a paddle and fly rod constantly in hand. Likewise, the Gaucho Snapshirt ($89) is built not just for the working fisherman, but make you look good while you sling flies. A vented back helps keep you dry, and the fabric will stand up to days on your SUP and nights enjoying a few beach beers at sunset.If you need any final inspiration to get out on the water this summer, look no further: The Best Best Big and Tall Men’s Clothing and Brands Tasc Performance Crafts Sustainable Fabrics Without Sacrificing Style last_img read more

Dogfish Head’s New In Your Mace Beer: Self-Defense in a Bottle?

first_img The Best Coffee-Infused Beers to Flip All the Switches Editors’ Recommendations Jameson Releases Two New Caskmates Editions The Most Unique Collaboration Beers in the U.S. When it comes to experimenting with beers, Dogfish Head Brewery consistently sits at or near the top of the heap (their slogan, after all, is “off-centered ales for off-centered people”), so it came as little surprise when the brewery announced that its latest experiment, In Your Mace, literally uses the key ingredient in Mace pepper spray.That being said, if you’re expecting it to be a great weapon for self-defense, you’d be better off channeling your inner Swayze and going Roadhouse with the business end of the bottle.In Your Mace is a coffee milk stout that is brewed with cinnamon verum chips from the Zanzibar Islands, mace spice (which is made from the outer shell of nutmeg), milk sugars, coffee, chicory, and chili oils — the ones that go into Mace pepper spray.“Any day we get to brew a beer wearing full body suits, face masks, and respirators is a memorable day in the brewhouse,” Dogfish Head CEO and founder Sam Calagione said in a statement.The project came about because Calagione went to high school with Mace brand vice president of sales Eric Crawford. While having a few beers and prepping for the Extreme Beer Fest, the two thought the beer would be a good way, as Dogfish Head normally does, to push the bounds of what we know as beer.The final product is 5 percent ABV and 35 IBUs. It has smoky and sweet notes, with spicy nutmeg, anise, and espresso notes all leading into the star of the show, the chili spice.If you’re sitting there reading this and thinking, “Boy, I need that in my life,” you better hope that you’re living in Boston or the Milton, Delaware area, because there are only two opportunities to get your hands on some (just remember that if you do get your hands on it, don’t touch your eyes after).First, In Your Mace will be poured at all three sessions of the Extreme Beer Fest on February 2 and 3 in Boston. The second opportunity is when the beer actually goes on sale. In Your Mace is only being sold from the Dogfish Head Tasting Room in Milton on Saturday, February 17 at 11 a.m. With only 200 750mL bottles made, you’re going to need a good dose of off-centered luck to snag a one or two for yourself.Need a beer that’s a little, um, tamer?

You Can Travel With Zero Luggage Thanks to Locarry

first_img The Mission Workshop Khyte Sets a New Standard for Messenger Bags World’s First Luxury Space Hotel Promises Climbing Wall, Low-Gravity Basketball Courts Editors’ Recommendations The MNML Leather Highlander Travel Bag Makes Short-Term Trips a Breeze Sip On the Original Stormtrooper Beer While You Wait for the Next Star Wars Movie Jeremy BishopUnless you’re the sort of crazy person who enjoys tedious things like emptying the dishwasher and alphabetizing your bookshelves, packing sucks. It is, however, the price we pay to travel to amazing destinations. But what if you didn’t need to pack for your next vacation? What if you didn’t need to pack a thing? That’s the goal of Locarry, the latest “Airbnb of ” website to take advantage of the sharing economy.The site is admittedly crude at the moment with a booking process that’s almost too straightforward. Lenders post the inventory of items they’re willing to let. This can include anything from jeans and digital cameras to camping tents and surfboards. If it’s of potential use to travelers, it can be shared. For clothing, they detail the sizes and other relevant details. Travelers (borrowers) are then able to search the site’s database of users and filter only those lenders that match their body size and luggage needs.Unlike sites like Airbnb, there is no option to immediately confirm an order. Every share request is sent to the lender, and the traveler must wait for manual approval. Once their order is approved, they arrange payment and a return date, then meet in person to exchange money and the items. For quality and security, the network relies on a simple star-based feedback system. Travelers who return their borrowed goods in the same condition they received them rank higher. For lenders, a consistently high-quality inventory scores them a better ranking.  Locarry is the brainchild of Japanese startup entrepreneur Shimpei Watanabe. On a short trip to China in 2017, he realized that he had to pack a large variety of clothing and goods to plan for every contingency. This included business attire, workout clothing, and casual threads for going out at night. It seemed like a lot of baggage for what amounted to a weekender. When a friend told him that he would’ve lent his clothes to the traveler, Watanabe knew there had to be a market for “luggage sharing.” With a little inspiration from Airbnb, Locarry was born.For now, the network is limited to the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, and a handful of other Asian countries. The company is looking to grow globally, so for now, it’s not taking a cut of any transactions, and there are no registration or membership fees. All payments take place directly between each user once they’ve met and exchanged goods. Banksy’s Gross Domestic Product Is a Pop-Up Shop Unlike Any Otherlast_img read more
