first_imgSebastian TretolaSebastian TretolaFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Univ. of Ark.) – Arkansas offensive linemen Denver Kirkland and Sebastian Tretola have been named to the Outland Trophy watch list, given annually to the nation’s best interior lineman. The list was announced Friday by the Football Writers Association of America.Kirkland enters the 2015 campaign with 21 consecutive starts and has played all 25 games of his two-year career. The junior played more than 750 snaps at right guard last season and graded out at 79 percent while allowing just one sack. He was penalized only three times throughout the entire 2014 campaign. Kirkland will move to left tackle this year where he will be tasked with protecting the quarterback’s blind side.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

He played more than 690 snaps and did not allow a sack, averaging a grade of 79 percent, tied for the second-highest mark on the team. The senior also launched a Heisman campaign after he threw a 6-yard touchdown pass on a fake field goal against UAB.Kirkland and Tretola were part of the largest offensive line in the nation in 2014 – averaging 328.4 pounds per player. The Razorback offensive line was bigger than any starting unit in the NFL. It paid dividends as Arkansas led the Southeastern Conference in fewest sacks allowed (14). Kirkland and Tretola also helped pave the way for Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins to run for 1,000 yards each, the only duo in the FBS to top the 1,000-yard mark.Denver Kirkland’s Preseason Awards– Outland Trophy Watch List– Sporting News All-American (first team)– Athlon All-American (fourth team)– Phil Steele All-SEC (second team)– Athlon Sports All-SEC (second team)Sebastian Tretola’s Preseason Awards– Outland Trophy Watch List– Athlon All-American (second team)– Athlon Sports All-SEC (first team)– Phil Steele All-SEC (third team)The winner of the 70th Outland Trophy, named after the late John Outland, an All-America lineman at Penn at the turn of the 20th century, will be announced on ESPN at The Home Depot College Football Awards on Dec. 10 for the first time from the National Football Foundation’s College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.For more information on Arkansas Football, follow @RazorbackFB on Twitter.last_img read more

David Jones: New Gators coach has dogged determination

first_imgJim McElwain leaves a players meeting in the Fum McGraw Athletic Center Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, in Fort Collins, CO.GAINESVILLE – Florida Gator fans may have felt like their program had gone to the dogs under the previous coach.But the new coach announced at Saturday’s introductory news conference that he thinks he can win in Gainesville even if his own hound has to play quarterback.“The first time I was actually in this state recruiting, that’s when I knew I wanted to be a Gator ’cause I saw the influence and I saw what it’s all about,” new Florida coach Jim McElwain said. “This goes (back) a long time.”He laughed a lot and smiled, and the man who loves to cook (in the offseason) even asked the media when they get to eat in the press box. And he showed a lot of confidence when asked if there was a quarterback at Florida he can win with immediately.“You got to understand this,” McElwain said. “I believe I can win with my dog Claire-a-bell. That’s the attitude. There’s good players here. That’s just our responsibility to get that going.”What’s his role in Florida’s bowl game?David Jones: Gators’ deal for McElwain better pay off“Eating popcorn,” McElwain declared, who invited UF president Bernie Machen to join him in setting up a grill. “I’m going to see what the normal guy does. Maybe we’ll go tailgate.”McElwain gave tribute to his former boss, Alabama’s Nick Saban, saying he wouldn’t be where he is without him.Those are ties that made McElwain a natural as Florida tries to rebuild a program that was once the pride of the SEC but hasn’t had an Eastern Division title since Tim Tebow was a senior in 2009.By the way, McElwain was the offensive coordinator when the Crimson Tide surprised Tebow and No. 1 UF in 2009 on the way to the first of two national titles during his stay there.On Saturday, the enemy who crushed one of Florida’s greatest seasons, to help Saban, officially joined the other side.“He’s a fit for the University of Florida,” Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said. “We talked to a lot of people about Jim, what type of person is he, what type of person will he be inside the building. … The amount of people kept saying the exact same things about him, how special he was, how good a guy he was. Again, he kept rising to the top.“Added to the fact he’s been in this league. He knows what it’s like to compete in the Southeastern Conference. Obviously, won two national championships in the league. He’s recruited the state of Florida. Every single box kept getting checked next to Jim’s name.”In the past two years of Will Muschamp’s tenure, UF went a combined 10-13 and not even within shouting distance of a national ranking in the polls. McElwain said Gators legend Steve Spurrier welcomed him to “Gator Country.”Priority No. 1 is recruiting. He plans to meet with the team for the first time on Monday and evaluation of current assistants will be over time. Of course, the offensive talents of McElwain, in addition to turning around Colorado State’s program, are what lured Foley to Fort Collins.UF, Colorado State say little on McElwain talksWhat kind of an offense will that be?“I’m the dog they dropped off down at the Humane Society,” McElwain said. “He has a little bit of about every breed in him. Whatever the situation is, you try to bring that breed out that helps success.“I think first and foremost, look, my pedigree, I’m from Montana, I spent 15 years in I-AA football, which is awesome because you wear every hat in the building at one time. I was everything from a PA announcer to a popcorn salesman to also a teacher and educator at a university as part of the PE department there. There’s a lot of great things you learn. When you don’t have resources, what you do is you actually go study as much as you can and really try to put it in your own terms, your own words.”And McElwain admitted he’s a thief.“There’s not been one thing that I’ve invented. A lot of guys in this business think they invented it,” he said. “It’s been done somewhere along the way. Somebody did it before. I’ve had great influences on my life as it goes through from the coaching standpoint. When we get here, it’s about the evaluation of the talent that’s here. Really accentuate what they do well, adapt to that, then recruit to some of the areas that maybe we need to get to as we form who we are and an identity.“Obviously, we believe in balance. Yet some games, based on what the defense has taken away, you need to have the versatility to do the other thing. That’s really where it evolves. But as we kind of do this, the one thing is, been pretty successful over the years of putting up some pretty good numbers with whoever we have back there, whether it’s the quarterback, running back, wideout, offensive line. It’s going to be one of those deals that we will develop it based on first what we have to play with.”Contact Jones at djones@floridatoday.com or follow him on Twitter: DaveJonesSports.New Florida head coach Jim McElwain will sit back and evaluate during the Gators’ bowl game.New Florida head coach Jim McElwain will sit back and evaluate during the Gators’ bowl game.last_img read more

We had something similar on our grey football helmets and I couldn’t stand it on them either. The WV on the pants is how it should look. Overall I’m not crazy about the flying WV on a baseball uniform.

Our only mistake was that …

first_imgNo. 1 in men’s tennis Novak Djokovic gave an interview to the New York Times and talked about the big scandal surrounding the tournaments in Belgrade and Zadar, which became a source of infection with COVID-19.One of the infected was our top tennis player Grigor Dimitrov, and Djokovic accepted the criticism with the words that he would organize such a competition again.“We tried to do something with the best of intentions. It’s true that some things might have had to happen differently, but honestly, I would have organized the tournament again. I agree that we shouldn’t have gone to a disco after the tournament in Belgrade and that was probably our only mistake, but the party was organized by the sponsors and there were only people with invitations, so we were calm, and then I fell victim to a witch hunt.I was close to not traveling to the United States now, but I play tennis and that’s why I’m here. I’m not afraid, but I know that anything can happen, “Djokovic said.The Serbian is in the United States for the tournament in Cincinnati (this year in New York) from August 20 to 28 and the US Open from August 31 to September 13.last_img read more
