MARQUETTE — The Northern Michigan University football team plays an unusual non-conference game against a GLIAC member school on Saturday afternoon.

The Wildcats travel to Grand Rapids to face Davenport in the first of two games against the Panthers this season. The return commitment in the Superior Dome on October 8 will count towards league standings.

The two meetings between these teams also took place last season as the number of GLIAC members playing football has decreased in recent years.

Davenport is 1-0 after beating Truman State (Missouri) 20-19 on Sept. 3.

Meanwhile, NMU is 1-1 after avenging a 2021 loss to Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a 13-10 win over the Titans last Saturday. The Wildcats lost their opener Sept. 1 31-24 to McKendree.

Today’s game is Northern’s first road contest, which begins at noon, against a team the Wildcats parted ways with in 2021, winning at home 20-14 and losing at Grand Rapids 18-13.

DU have won three of their five meetings since the Panthers became members of the GLIAC in 2017.

Against Oshkosh, NMU senior kicker Daniel Riser threw a 25-yard field goal in the first minute of the fourth quarter to break a 10-10 tie that provided the final margin after junior cornerback Isaiah Morrison managed an interception with 95 seconds remaining to preserve the victory.

Northeast junior quarterback Drake Davis completed 19 of 23 passes, an 83% completion rate, for 194 yards and no interceptions. Sophomore back-up QB Zach Keen came into the game for a play, threw a pass and completed it to junior Kenyon’TA Skinner for the Wildcats’ lone TD from 43 yards early in the second quarter.

Senior rush Tyquan Cox finished with 104 total yards on offense, 56 receiving and 48 rushing.

Junior fullback Tyshon King, who gained 89 yards on 17 carries, led a productive NMU rushing offense that rushed for 149 yards, while Skinner led the North receiving corps with eight catches for 94 yards and his TD.

Defensively, sophomore linebacker Justin Peake had nine team-leading tackles, while senior lineman John McMullen, senior running back Brian Schieweck and freshman lineman Jhermari Mabry each had a tackle. for the loss.

Riser’s field goal was his second of three attempts after earlier throwing a 42-yarder to open the scoring less than six minutes into the game and missing a 50-yarder with about 2 1/2 minutes left.

After today’s game, the Wildcats return home to face first-time opponent Post University of Waterbury, Connecticut for Homecoming at 2 p.m. next Saturday. The Eagles (0-2) are in their second season playing NCAA Division II football, although the school plays at that level in most of its other sports.

ST. LOUIS — There’s big news about when St. Louis will host its first game in the revamped XFL, while keeping the team name “Battlehawks.”

There were unexpected developments during Wednesday’s meeting of the board of directors of the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority (RSA), which oversees the Dome at America’s Center where the St. Louis Rams played and where the team XFL will play in 2023.

The Rev. Earl Nance Jr., chairman of the RSA board, said he wanted the St. Louis XFL team to keep its name.

“It’s common sense. It was an exciting name, the Battlehawks,” Nance said. “They even had their own ‘sound: ka-kaw, ka-kaw.'”

St. Louis officials said they expect the Battlehawks name to stick, but they haven’t received confirmation from the XFL.

The new XFL season begins in February 2023. The St. Louis team is scheduled to have its first home game in March at the Dome.

The effort is underway to hire 200-300 game day staff and prepare the turf that has been stored under the dome floor since the Battlehawks last game of 2020 just before COVID-19 shut down the league.

“It’s just kind of really the hydraulics, getting the (grass) pitch in and out,” said Matthew Dewey, America’s Center senior vice president and general manager. “Just give it a comb and make sure it’s more aesthetically appropriate for the team: repaint, paint off, more aesthetics of things.”

The RSA board also voted to consider investing the $514.1 million from the NFL/Stan Kroenke settlement in a higher-interest fund that could earn around $28,000 a day. As the City of St. Louis, County of St. Louis and the RSA continue secret negotiations to split the money.

The money is currently in a low-yielding account that has earned a modest $1.5 million in interest since April, bumping the total to $513.6 million. Reinvesting the money would earn more than $10 million in interest per year.

The board also voted to meet monthly, instead of quarterly, for the next six months to deal with settlement matters.

“It’s about getting a settlement. This is about pushing our way to a settlement right now,” Nance said. “If the next six months or less hopefully can get us there, then great.”

“We just don’t want (the settlement money) to be wasted,” said Dave Spence, deputy chairman of the RSA board. “I hope everyone thinks the same way. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. This is a once-in-a-generation fund that we can hopefully use to catalyze our community…projects that would be meaningful, that you’d look back in 10 years and say, ‘Wow, that was a great project. It really moved the needle,” or it could be seed money for things that need a little push on the goal line.

Board members expect the RSA to receive less than “a third” of the money. They call for cooperation between all parties.

A preview of what’s happening in the Champions League on Wednesday:

GROUP A

Rangers to host Napoli in a game postponed from Tuesday due to logistical issues related to the death of Queen Elizabeth II. UEFA said Napoli fans would not be allowed to attend the game in Glasgow. Rangers, back in the Champions League after 12 years of absence, opened the group with a 4-0 defeat at Ajax. Napoli beat Liverpool 4-1.

GROUP E

Graham Potter takes charge of his first game as Chelsea manager when Salzburg visit Stamford Bridge. Potter left Brighton and replaced Thomas Tuchel as manager on Thursday before Chelsea’s English Premier League game at Fulham on Saturday was called off following the Queen’s death. The pressure is immediately on Potter, Chelsea having opened the group with a 1-0 defeat at Dinamo Zagreb. Tuchel was fired two days later. Salzburg started with a 1-1 draw at home to AC Milan, who host Dinamo for their second game.

GROUP F

Defending champions Real Madrid will be without injured Karim Benzema when they host Leipzig. The striker is still recovering from a hamstring injury sustained in Madrid’s 3-0 win over Celtic in last week’s opener. Coach Carlos Ancelotti used Rodrygo and Eden Hazard alongside Vinícius Júnior in attack during the team’s win over Mallorca in the Spanish Premier League last weekend. Madrid have a perfect record to start the season, with seven wins. In the other match, Shakhtar Donetsk play their first ‘home’ game in the group in Warsaw when Celtic visit the Polish city. The Ukrainian team played in exile eight for years because of Russian aggression.

GROUP G

Erling Haaland quickly finds himself with Borussia Dortmund. The striker left Dortmund in the offseason to join Manchester City, the side he supported as a boy after being born in England, and he started the Premier League in explosive fashion, scoring 10 goals in six games. Then, in his first Champions League game for City, Haaland netted twice in a 4-0 win at Sevilla last week to go 25 goals in 20 games in the competition. Dortmund, who beat FC Copenhagen 3-0 to open the group, had Haaland in their squad in the 2-1 loss at City in the 2021 Champions League quarter-finals. Copenhagen and Sevilla are looking to bounce back from their meeting in Denmark.

GROUP H

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are looking to continue their sparkling form as unbeaten Paris Saint-Germain travel to face Israeli club Maccabi Haifa. Mbappe scored two razor-sharp volleys in PSG’s first win over Juventus, while Neymar scored a French league record eight goals, one more than Mbappe. But PSG coach Christophe Galtier will be without central defender Presnel Kimpembe, who has been out for at least six weeks with a hamstring injury. Substitute goalkeeper Keylor Navas will not take part in the game due to lower back pain. Benfica, who lead the group on goal difference, have had a great start to the season and will be aiming for their 12th straight overall win when they travel to Juventus in the other game.

LAS VEGAS — A’ja Wilson is coming for Finals MVP.

The newly crowned league MVP and Defensive Player of the Year went all out as the No. 1-seeded Las Vegas Aces pushed her team to a 67-64 win over the No. 3 Connecticut Sun in Game 1 of the WNBA Finals in front of a record 10,135 fans at the Michelob ULTRA Arena on Sunday afternoon. Game 2 takes place Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET in Las Vegas.

It was the first career victory for Wilson and the Aces players who remain on the 2020 team who were storm-swept away from Seattle in the bubble.

“It was a game we needed. It was a game we needed, not necessarily because, oh, it’s our first win,” Wilson said. “It’s because it’s something that’s huge for us. They’re sort of tie-breaking games, and when you’re playing against a good team like Conn, you really have to lock yourself in at all costs.”

Wilson, backed by a frenzied fan base who chanted “MVP” on her free throw attempts, scored 24 points and added 11 rebounds in a highly competitive game. The Aces also needed every single one of his points as apart from Chelsea Gray the team was struggling to get off to a good start.

Gray had 21 points and three assists. Jackie Young added 11 points. While her stat line may not have appeared, Dearica Hamby’s impact on the pitch has been felt – and needed. She battled a bone bruise in her right knee and played sparingly in the semis. His 11 minutes in game 1 of the final gave the Aces another dimension.

“He’s a pro, first of all, but just being ready to go and that’s a mentality. His mentality is more of a physical mentality. That’s what we needed, so that’s what we gave them. said,” Aces coach Becky Hammon said of Hamby.

How the Aces Won Game 1

The Aces built a 12-point lead in the first half before the Sun tipped in their favor. The Sun’s physical play stagnated the Aces’ offense and ball movement in the second quarter. Las Vegas got no assists in the second quarter and only eight for the game.

It was exactly the kind of basketball the Sun wanted to play. And that’s what presented the most matchup problems for the Aces.

Connecticut settled in during the second period, disrupting Las Vegas’ offensive flow and making it “muddy,” as Hammon called it pregame.

“Give credit to their defense and give credit to our absence. I thought it was a bit of both,” Hammon said after the game. “But they’re a tough team. That’s where they like the score to be, and we’ll go back and watch the movie and make some adjustments.”

The Sun harassed the Aces with deflections, and their teeming defense held the Aces to just nine points in the second quarter as the Sun took a 38-34 halftime lead. Sixth-placed player of the year Brionna Jones was a first-half winner for the Sun, scoring 10 of her 12 points before halftime.

The Aces made the necessary adjustments after a halftime speech from Hammon which she called a “bed”. From there, the Aces retired and never trailed in the fourth quarter.

“I was on. Because everything we talked about, we didn’t do anything about it. And true to form, they just got up and did it then,” Hammon said. “…When you go out and you don’t execute it, it’s frustrating. But at the end of the day, they know it. They’re smart. They understand. But they had us beat in every category of hustle , and that can’t happen. You can’t lose a championship or a game or a quarter because of the hustle. It can never happen.

The Aces built an eight-point lead with 2:40 remaining in the game before Connecticut forward Alyssa Thomas scored six points, four on Las Vegas turnovers. Thomas finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds.

The Sun had one last chance to tie the game and send it to overtime, but DeWanna Bonner’s off-leg triple was called off.

What to look for in game 2

Las Vegas guard Kelsey Plum struggled, missing his first eight shots before a 3-pointer with 4:30 to go. Plum averaged 20.2 points per game in the regular season and had just six in Game 1. Wilson and Gray scored 45 of the Aces’ 67 points.

The Aces shot just 39.7% from the field, down from 48.3% for the season. They are averaging 88.7 points per game this season, leading the league. The Sun likes to mess things up and keep scores low. They did just that and nearly stole the first game on the road.

The Aces will need their powerful offense to click in Game 2. The Sun’s style presents many problems for the Aces, and it showed on Sunday.

Connecticut, meanwhile, would like Game 2 to look a lot like their defense and second-period “mud” from Game 1. However, the Sun also need to find a better offensive rhythm and maintain it for longer periods. .

“The second quarter was huge for us, but we left some points there,” Sun coach Curt Miller said. “There were times when I thought we had really good offensive possessions and missed a few shots that we are capable of, to really try to create some separation before half-time, and that doesn’t didn’t happen.”

Let the band play “Neck”?

BATON ROUGE — While all eyes will be on the LSU and Southern University football teams on Saturday night, many fans are equally thrilled to see marching bands from both schools share the spotlight at Tiger Stadium for the first time. .

“Between LSU, between the Southern University Jaguars, it’s so exciting. It’s going to be a great time in Death Valley,” LSU group manager Kelvin Jones said.

Southern University band manager Kedric Taylor told WBRZ that he’s equally excited for the Human Jukebox to show off its skills in Death Valley.

“Here at Southern University, we pride ourselves on being better than our last performance. So for us, we want to make sure that every performance is a Super Bowl performance or a state championship,” said Taylor, manager. from the band Human Jukebox.

The groups’ rare reunion has got fans speculating if a collaboration is in the cards. The last time they met, in 2004, the two bands performed side-by-side on the steps of the State Capitol to celebrate LSU and Southern’s championship seasons.

However, the two group directors remain tight-lipped about their plans for Saturday.

“I’ve spoken to Dr Jones so we’ll find out by the time the game starts I guess,” Taylor teased.

Although he didn’t reveal much, Taylor did answer a major question about Saturday: Will Southern’s band play “Neck”?

Once a staple song for LSU’s Golden Band, the university occasionally banned it at football games for about a decade. That’s because the fans—primarily the student section of LSU—became accustomed to shouting a lewd, profane chant every time he played.

It got so out of control that LSU was fined in 2018 when fans shouted the same chant, albeit to the tune of a completely different song, so loudly it was picked up on TV.

For the past few years, fans have been begging The Golden Band to bring him back. And while LSU doesn’t seem to have any plans to perform the song anytime soon, the Human Jukebox has other plans in mind.

“I’ll let the band play the sleeves on the neck!” laughed Taylor.

Carolina Panthers’ Baker Mayfield – No built-in animosity ahead of Week 1 game against former team Cleveland Browns https://greenwoodacrescampground.net/carolina-panthers-baker-mayfield-no-built-in-animosity-ahead-of-week-1-game-against-former-team-cleveland-browns/ Wed, 07 Sep 2022 23:36:34 +0000 https://greenwoodacrescampground.net/carolina-panthers-baker-mayfield-no-built-in-animosity-ahead-of-week-1-game-against-former-team-cleveland-browns/

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Baker Mayfield has a reputation for being big on so-called “revenge” games, but the Carolina Panthers quarterback insists he doesn’t watch the game. Sunday’s opener against Cleveland that way, even though his time with the Browns ended ‘abruptly and unexpectedly.’

“It’s a great story,” Mayfield said Wednesday. “Obviously there is a story that preceded this week. [But] there are other NFL games the guys are playing (against) their old team. It’s just the excitement of Week 1 that’s creating that anticipation. It’s familiarity.”

Mayfield spent his first four NFL seasons with the Browns, who made him the top pick of the 2018 draft. He was traded to Carolina in July, nearly three months after Cleveland acquired Deshaun Watson from the Texans of Houston.

“Any time you play against guys you know, it makes things more interesting, more fun,” Mayfield said. “You can talk to your buddies that you’ve been with for a little while. You know how to push and push and get the most out of it.

“I look forward to the opportunity.”

If he has any animosity toward the Browns, Mayfield doesn’t show it.

“I’m grateful for the time I spent in Cleveland,” he said. “I started my career there. The fans there, it’s a football city. As I’ve mentioned many times, it ended abruptly and unexpectedly, but here we are. now.

“Everything happens for a reason. I roll with the hits. I’m happy to be a Panther.”

Mayfield Wouldn’t Even Take Credit for His PR Team’s ‘Off the Leash’ T-Shirts went on sale last week ahead of Sunday’s game.

One shirt has a picture of Mayfield wearing a cowboy hat from his college days with the Oklahoma Sooners with a spiked dog collar and a broken chain underneath. Above his head are the words “Off the Leash”. The other simply has a picture of Mayfield in a running Panthers uniform with a cowboy hat that apparently flew off his head. There is a photo of a broken doghouse (Cleveland) and a stagecoach (Oklahoma) below him either side of his last name.

“Oh man, I wish I could say I invented t-shirts, but I got a team behind me,” Mayfield said. “They put some hidden messages, just my story, some subliminal stuff in there.

“I think people back home who have been following me for a long time like it. It’s just a fun thing to do.”

Mayfield is doing his best to ensure Sunday’s game is all about fun and a good start for the Panthers, who also tried to trade for Watson. Carolina guard Austin Corbett, who spent his first year and a half with the QB in Cleveland, likes this tactic.

“That’s what the media wants to see,” he said. “We’re not here to make a show about us. There’s another 16 games that come after this house.”

Wide receiver Rashard Higgins, who has spent the past four years in Cleveland with Mayfield, agreed, but has repeatedly suggested over the past month that the QB will eventually show the personality that defined his career.

“There’s no hate towards Cleveland,” Higgins said. “We were both happy there. It came down to what it came down to. We’re in this position now to help the Panthers win, and that’s the only goal.”

But Higgins expects Mayfield to excel like he has in other big games. He vividly recalled a 2020 game for Cleveland in which Mayfield started 0 for 5 with an interception against rival Cincinnati Bengals, then completed 22 of 23 passes for 297 yards and five touchdowns in a 37-34 win. .

“When he’s up, he plays well,” Higgins said, noting the offense watched footage of that game earlier Wednesday. “Let him eat, man, let him eat. Y’all remember that catchphrase, we all gotta eat? Man, let him do his thing. That’s where he gained his trust. . . . It’s going to be fun. I don’t have anything else to say.”

Mayfield hasn’t said anything derogatory about his former team since arriving in Carolina. But he dipped into his memory bank of past games against old teams, like 2015 at Oklahoma when he beat Texas Tech, the team that let him trade two years earlier. Oklahoma won that game 63-27, with Mayfield completing 15 of 22 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns.

“Anytime you can recount your past experiences, good or bad, you can always learn from them,” Mayfield said. “Good or bad, you can still benefit from it. So I think it will help.”

While Mayfield admits he’s “all about winning,” his immediate desire on Sunday is simple.

“A big hug from Nicholas Chubb would be a very, very good gift,” he said of the Browns. “Just hearing him say a word would also be nice.”

Florida A&M’s football team has eight players ineligible for Sunday’s game against Jackson State, sources told ESPN’s Pete Thamel, up from 26 in last week’s loss to North Carolina.

Point pitcher and 2023 NFL prospect Isaiah Land will be eligible, along with starting right tackle Cam Colvin, all-conference defensive back BJ Bohler and reserve wide receiver Nick Dixon. Players are now eligible through appeals approved by the NCAA on Friday.

The news comes four days after nearly 90 FAMU players wrote a scathing letter to school president Larry Robinson that blamed ‘procedural issues within the registrar’s office, compliance department and academic councils’. for ineligibility.

The letter implored Robinson for “changes being made now” and said “we are not interested in empty dialogue with you or your staff”. The letter says the players knelt in protest during two school songs played after the game against UNC and will continue to do so “until meaningful changes facilitate a positive experience for students- athletes are brought”.

The university responded by saying it is committed to maintaining a culture of compliance and adhering to NCAA guidelines.

“We are confident that our processes are efficient and timely,” the school said Tuesday. “We will continue to monitor our efforts in this regard and pursue every avenue to provide an excellent student experience for every athlete. FAMU is committed to maintaining high standards and strictly adhering to NCAA guidelines.”

FAMU will take on Jackson State in the Orange Blossom Classic in Miami on Sunday, a nationally televised game on ESPN2.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — The setting was Herning, not Beijing, but the United States will still be pleased with a 5-2 victory over Olympic champion Canada in group play at the women’s hockey world championship on Tuesday.

Megan Keller netted a goal and an assist to help the Americans beat their longtime rival and finish the group game unbeaten in central Denmark. The teams are big favorites to meet in Sunday’s final.

Canada, also the defending world champion, led 2-0 after first-half goals from Sarah Fillier and Ella Shelton. Keller kicked off the USA with a power play goal early in the second period and Kelly Pannek made it 2-2.

Lacey Eden scored the winner early in the third, with assists from Keller and Savannah Harmon, who also had an assist on Kendall Coyne Schofield’s goal to make it 4-2 with 6:32 to go.

Hilary Knight’s empty net brought her within a point of Canadian Hayley Wickenheiser’s total of 86 goals. Knight already holds the goalscoring record with 50.

The United States’ victory ended a five-game losing streak against Canada, which won gold at the Beijing Olympics by beating the Americans 3-2 in the final.

Nicole Hensley made 26 saves for the United States; Emerance Maschmeyer 28 for Canada.

In Thursday’s quarterfinals, the United States will face Hungary, while Canada will face Sweden. Winner of Group B, the Czech Republic will face Finland and Switzerland will face Japan.

The United States and Canada are the only two teams to have won the world championship, which began in 1990. Canada has won the title 11 times, two more than the United States.

The rivals have faced each other in all but one final – in 2019 when the Americans beat Finland in a shootout. The United States had won five consecutive titles before Canada broke the streak last year.

Czechia took first place in Group B by beating Sweden 3-0.

Finland secured third place in Group A with a 4-0 win over Switzerland, who played without captain Lara Stalder after testing positive for COVID-19.

Finland captain Jenni Hiirikoski was honored at a pre-match ceremony for her record 14th World Championship appearance.

Scientists have found strong evidence for seasonal changes in all measures of biodiversity, indicating that bee communities are completely different almost every month. When measuring abundance, for example, they counted an average of 21 bees per site in April, compared to 168 bees per site in July. Species richness, or the number of species present, showed a similar trend, with an average of nine species found per site in April, dropping to an average of 21 species in July.

The researchers spotted three general trends per month. Some solitary species emerged early in the year and had a short period of activity. Other solitary ground-nesting species also had short periods of activity, but in summer rather than spring. The third group consisted mainly of social species with much longer periods of seasonal activity.

Such seasonal variation is an important target for monitoring, according to study co-author Margarita López-Uribe, associate professor of entomology and Lorenzo L. Langstroth Early Career Professor.

“These groups of bees provide unique ecological functions,” she said. “For example, many early-emerging bee species are critically important to early-flowering plants such as spring ephemeral wildflowers, and these bee-plant interactions may be particularly susceptible to disturbances from climate change. And many crops, like apples and blueberries, depend on pollination by the first emerging wild bees.

Evidence for changes in biodiversity over the years was also strong, the researchers noted. For example, the average abundance of bees captured decreased by 48% and the number of species detected dropped by 41%.
