Serie A: Atalanta hand rudderless AC Milan five-goal thrashing

first_imgRelatedPosts Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Juve’s Pirlo gamble makes new Serie A season the most open for years Pirlo bags UEFA coaching badge Alejandro Gomez scored a stunning individual goal and Josip Ilicic notched a second half brace as Atalanta thrashed a rudderless AC Milan 5-0 on Sunday The result helped to hand the former European champions their opponents their joint-heaviest Serie A defeat. Former AC Milan player Mario Pasalic rubbed further salt into their wounds by also scoring. It was the fourth time AC Milan have lost a Serie A match by a five-goal margin and the first since 1998. AC Milan are 10th in the table with 21 points while Atalanta climbed to fifth with 31 points. It helped Atalanta to cap an outstanding year which saw them qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time and reach the last 16. “It’s been a fantastic year which has been crowned by today’s performance,” said Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini. His opposite number Stefano Pioli said that Milan “approached the match in the wrong way and you just can’t afford to do that against this team. This cannot be the real AC Milan.” “Today’s performance was seriously insufficient,” added Pioli, Milan’s second coach of the season after his predecessor Marco Giampaolo was fired after only seven games. “I expected a reaction from us in the second half but it didn’t come. In fact, we were even worse.” Gomez opened the scoring in the 10th minute, nutmegging a hapless Andrea Conti before firing a right foot shot past Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 10th minute. Pasalic, who clipped the crossbar before half-time, diverted Robin Gonsens’ cross-shot into the net in the 61st minute, although he refused to celebrate his goal. Ilicic then scored twice in a nine-minute spell to turn it into a humiliation for AC Milan as their defence fell apart. The Slovenia forward collected a pass on the right, outfoxed his marker and drilled his shot past Donnarumma in the 63rd minute. Then he curled a delightful effort into the top corner from outside the area. Davide Calabria cleared a shot off the line but there was still more to come as Luis Muriel ran onto a through ball, outran an AC Milan defender. He evaded Donnarumma as the goalkeeper rushed out of his area and added the fifth. The referee spared AC Milan further punishment by mercifully adding on only one minute of stoppage time.

Syracuse tries to give back to troops in Fort Drum stay

first_img Published on August 12, 2014 at 9:55 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb FORT DRUM, N.Y. — As much as head coach Scott Shafer praises the troops at Fort Drum for how they influence his Syracuse program, the feeling is mutual.“They look up to the players,” Dave Doyle, commander of the second brigade combat team at Fort Drum, said of the troops. “Some of the players that these troops are going to eat breakfast with are going to be on the field matching skills against some of the best players in the country. They’ll remember that.The Orange is back in Fort Drum for training camp for the third year in a row, and the budding relationship indicates that the tradition won’t be ending anytime soon. Syracuse kicked off its stay at the army reservation, which is situated just Northeast of Watertown, N.Y., on Tuesday and will interact with troops on the base each day until Friday.Former Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone started the trend in 2012, and his successor Shafer  — whose uncle, cousin and two grandfathers all served in the military — gladly carries it on.Some of the troops that the Orange interacted with last year were deployed to Afghanistan but have returned in time to reconnect with the players all over again.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“To me, coming from a big military family, I’m taken back when I get around you guys,” Shafer said in a press conference after his team’s practice Tuesday. “It’s just great to be part of this. I’m looking forward to meeting the new faces and new names and I hope some of those troops and players can rekindle their relationships.”SU benefits from the experience in three major ways, Shafer said.“For our guys to sit across from the troops,” Shafer said, “and understand, ‘Hey, I’m 21. He’s 21. He’s up in the mountains in Afghanistan putting it on the line for our country so I can go out and play football,’ that’s the first thing we get out of it.”The Orange also learns how to maximize its small-group leadership from the Fort Drum troops, the head coach added, but the trip is also a chance to offer something in return to the troops.“Anything that we can give back to them in some small degree — and that’s all it is, really, is a small degree — is something that we take great pride in,” Shafer said. “I think this thing is just going to blow up in the next few years and I’m excited to be a small part of that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Men’s Basketball: Micah Potter’s issues with NCAA shows inconsistencies in system

first_imgThe 2019 University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is off to a 3-1 start. While the team has had moderate success on the court, they are doing so without key newcomer Micah Potter. A redshirt junior from Mentor, Ohio, Potter was a highly touted, four-star recruit from Montverde Academy, a prep school that has produced NBA All-Stars in D’Angelo Russell and Ben Simmons. After finishing his high school career, Potter stayed home and attended The Ohio State University. At OSU, Potter struggled to find playing time. Although he appeared in 59 games in over two seasons with the Buckeyes, he only averaged 10 minutes per game his sophomore year, a four-minute decrease from the 2016-17 season.Potter decided to leave the OSU program before the 2018-19 season, transferring to Wisconsin. Potter began practicing with the Badgers last December, but the main problem was getting him eligible for the 2019-2020 season. The problem was the NCAA’s strict and confusing transfer rules, which have held Potter out of action in 2019. Men’s Basketball: Badgers take down Green Bay in second straight in-state matchupThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team took care of business for the fourth consecutive game after dropping their season Read…According to the NCAA website, students are required to spend one year at the school’s institution before becoming eligible to play. The NCAA also adjusted a law that stated a student is eligible to play immediately if an incoming freshman has enrolled in summer classes and their coach departs before the first day of fall classes.While this new adaptation of the transfer rule is a small step forward toward advocating for the rights of student-athletes, flaws still exist in the NCAA’s transfer portal system, particularly in the case of Potter.The point of the NCAA’s transfer rule is to get the new student comfortable with the environment at the University before participating in athletics. In Potter’s case, the rule does not hold up. In his short time at Wisconsin, Potter has already seemed to fit in at the school, practicing with the team and earning a 3.3 GPA in his spring semester at Wisconsin.While Potter appears to have become pretty comfortable with the environment in Madison, the NCAA declined his appeal for a waiver to become eligible. Even with letters of support from the OSU Athletic Director Gene Smith and Head Coach Chris Holtmann, the NCAA still denied the waiver, forcing Potter to sit. Men’s Basketball: Previewing remainder of Badgers’ non-conference scheduleWe’ll keep it simple — the prospects for a highly successful Badger basketball team weren’t great before the 2019-20 season. Read…Potter’s case raises serious questions about the NCAA’s transfer portal system. If a player is not enjoying their current school and makes the decision to switch, then excels at their new school in the classroom and with their team, why shouldn’t they be allowed to play? Even though Potter is clearly fitting in nicely at UW, the NCAA continues to declare him ineligible.Even more frustrating, the NCAA’s fraudulent transfer system is representative of their lack of consistency. Unlike Potter, the NCAA has granted waivers to transfer students that allow them to play immediately, even to some that haven’t sat out even a semester before transferring to their new school.Nine games into his sophomore season at the University of Kentucky, Quade Green elected to leave the program in December and transfer. Now at the University of Washington, the NCAA granted Green a waiver, making the six-foot guard immediately eligible for the 2019-20 season.Even though Green never sat a year or spent at least two semesters at his university, he is allowed to see the court while Potter continues to watch the Badgers from the bench. Green’s case is one of many to show the inconsistencies in the NCAA’s new rule. Men’s Basketball: Wisconsin dominates I-94 rivalry with Marquette, slows down Markus HowardIn front of an electric Kohl Center, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team beat in-state rivals Marquette 77–61 Sunday. Read…As of right now, Potter is forced to sit until the end of the 2019 fall semester. The NCAA announced Thursday that Potter will be ineligible until Wisconsin’s Dec. 21 matchup against UW-Milwaukee. While the Badgers have held their own without him thus far, his return will help boost the Badgers as they enter Big Ten play.Wisconsin fans, players and alumni should be frustrated with the NCAA’s decision, as their inconsistencies seem to target certain student-athletes over others.While Wisconsin desperately wants to return to the NCAA Tournament in 2019-20, it becomes more difficult to get resume-boosting non-conference wins without Potter, a 6’10” center that could provide a key impact in these matchups.The Badgers hope to get a boost from Potter sooner rather than later. In the meantime, Wisconsin’s mindset shifts towards preparing for their final few games before the return of Potter in a couple of weeks.last_img read more
