  • Title IX Revisited

    first_imgTitle IX takes many forms in high school athletics.  The true meaning of the law states that there be no difference in the handling of male and female athletic programs.  Literally, this has not happened yet.  For one thing, high school girls’ teams don’t mind playing games during the week.  In fact, some of them prefer it.  However, in Indiana  the court has dictated that schools must abide by the true meaning of Title IX in scheduling boys and girls basketball games.  At Batesville the girls now have cheerleaders which has not been the case in years past.  So far, they are sharing the cheerleaders with the boys team.  Thus, you will only see cheerleaders at home games for the boys and girls.  Trying to do home and away games for both boys and girls would be too costly and it would be an overload for the cheerleader squad.  Maybe some day there will be two separate cheer groups, but for now there is not.  The girls schedule has many more weekend (prime time) games than they ever did.  In a few years, I am sure these will be truly 50/50.  Whether the salaries of the two coaches match is questionable.  This could be a whole story in itself.  Transportation, uniforms, etc. are now equal.  Referees are the same, length of schedule is the same (18 games), and the tournament format is the same.  We are getting close to being “equal”.last_img read more

  • Rodgers enjoying Reds’ rise to top

    first_img “No chance. We have next year to go again so it is not the end of the world,” he said. “We want to win, we are in a brilliant position, but the focus is only on Chelsea. “That is a big game for us and we will hopefully get over that hurdle – we might clip it, but as long as we get over it that is important – and then it is on to the next one. “We must enjoy it. We are not going to not enjoy it. “There is no pressure with it. People say to me ‘Are you not enjoying it? You must not sleep at night’. I haven’t slept better! “This is brilliant, we are top of the most competitive league in the world, the city has a real vibe and excitement around it, the supporters are loving it and we are showing the real scale of the club. “I’d be lying if I said I expected us to be top of the league, but I certainly believed in the players and trusted their qualities and believed we could challenge for the top four. “Yes we are a year ahead (of expectations), but we’re not going to complain. We’ll embrace it. The Reds are five points clear of Sunday’s visitors Chelsea and six ahead of third-placed Manchester City, who have a match in hand, with three games to go. Liverpool are closer to the title than they have been in the 24 years since they last won it, but Rodgers stressed it would not be a failure were they not to win it from this position. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists being top of the league is brilliant and he is sleeping better than ever, despite the perceived pressure which comes with the position. “We really want to help the supporters dream by making their dreams happen, but that is something we can only do by performing well and the consequence of that is hopefully winning games.” Despite suggestions they did not have the mentality to win the title, Liverpool have so far answered their critics with 11 successive victories. And Rodgers said because the likes of Chelsea and City had begun the season with title aspirations, they were likely to be finding it more of a strain than his squad. “I think everyone is talking about pressure but that is Manchester City or Chelsea – when you spend that sort of money and expect to win the league,” he added. “I don’t think there is pressure on ourselves, only from what we have within. Look at Tottenham, you spend over £100-odd million you’d expect to be challenging for the league. “We will do the best we possibly can. At this moment in time we have been absolutely outstanding.” And were Liverpool not to complete the job in the next three games, the Reds boss said it would not be as a result of them cracking. He said: “I believe it won’t be because of pressure; a bit of luck might go against us or we make a mistake – which can happen in football – but the players have shown since the second half of last season we have coped with pressure.” Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho suggested that, with a finely-balanced Champions League semi-final second leg at home to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, he would field a weakened side at Anfield, but Rodgers paid that no attention. “Jose is a winner, he won’t give up,” he said. “There are certainly no mind games on behalf of him to me, he knows me well enough to know it wouldn’t bother me one iota what he says or does. “I’ve seen some stuff saying a weakened team will be played, but that is hugely disrespectful to their players if they are deemed to be the weaker ones in the squad. “Whatever team they put out will have cost more than ours and will be more experienced. “It is difficult because they have the game in the week and there is no doubt if they played the same team on Sunday and Wednesday there is a cost. “You saw it with Manchester City. When they played us it was a really intense game, and I think Manuel (Pellegrini) felt on the Wednesday when they played Sunderland they had a real cost and ended up drawing the game.” Rodgers also expressed some sympathy for David Moyes after he was sacked by Manchester United earlier this week. “I’m saddened that a man who is an outstanding manager lost his job in the circumstances he did,” added the Northern Irishman. “I find it fascinating and sad he was opened up to the ridicule he was.” Press Associationlast_img read more

  • Pearson has faith in Foxes

    first_img Press Association The Foxes will contest a Premier League fixture for the first time in a decade on Saturday against Everton at the King Power Stadium. Ahead of the game, Pearson said: “We were the best team in the league last season, obviously that won’t be the case this time round. “We are not going to dominate games like we did last season – that goes without saying – but there is an air of confidence among the players that they believe they have the ability to perform, and I fully agree. “I believe we have a good squad which is capable of making the transition. “We have a good balance in the squad in terms of seniority of players and some exciting young players who I think, providing they are able to adapt at a sensible rate, will do very well in the Premier League. “I do believe we have players who are very capable of doing very well. “A lot is always made of the teams who come up and how they will fare. I have been asked if staying up is just enough, and that has to be the bottom line. “But I think it’s dangerous to set your targets too low. From a business point of view – and purely on a business level – survival would be an achievement. But, of course, I can’t preach that as that would be under-selling what we have the potential to do. As is usually the case with newly-promoted sides, last season’s Championship title winners are among those clubs tipped to struggle when the 2014/15 campaign gets under way this weekend. While Pearson accepts that life will be significantly more challenging in the top flight, he believes his players can adapt. “The players have a belief and the staff have a belief in the players that they are capable. “A top-10 finish would be huge, but we have to make sure our first goal is to establish ourselves in the Premier League.” Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton are injury doubts. Striker Vardy, who scored 16 goals last season to help the Foxes clinch the Championship title, has a thigh strain while midfielder Albrighton, a summer arrival from Aston Villa, is nursing a groin problem. Anthony Knockaert has had an ankle injury recently but the French winger is expected to be fit, while Matt Upson’s ankle injury will rule him out. Everton manager Roberto Martinez begins his second season with a long-term plan not only to win trophies but also to lay foundations for a successful future. One of the Spaniard’s key words during the summer was “stability” and that has been achieved by tying down pivotal figures to lengthy deals. Martinez himself agreed a new five-year contract in June – an example followed by defenders Seamus Coleman, after arguably his best season for the Toffees, and John Stones, while England midfielder Ross Barkley signed for four more years. Last season’s significant loan stars Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry signed permanently for five and three years respectively and, back in January, England left-back Leighton Baines ended speculation about his future with a four-year deal. That work behind the scenes has guaranteed Martinez a core group of quality players he can expect to rely on for the future. It gives him a solid platform on which to build on an impressive maiden season at Goodison Park which saw them finish fifth, having been in the running for the Champions League until late in the campaign. But he is also planning for the longer term with improvements to the club’s academy to help more promising youngsters break through. “You need to manage the club as if you are going to be here for the next 100 years and you need to make decisions in the younger age groups where you develop them even if you are not going to see them – although the club will eventually get the benefit,” Martinez told Press Association Sport. “Every manager should work in that manner. You are not looking at the short-term doing everything and anything to win a trophy and then move on. “I have never got satisfaction from that, I get satisfaction from trying to build clubs and philosophies that last. “Whatever happens with the manager, for good or bad reasons, you want to have the long-term continuity and vision that is shared by everyone.” Leicester manager Nigel Pearson believes his team is capable of competing in the Barclays Premier League.last_img read more

  • Gulley prepares to take on starting role, lead deep cast of running backs

    first_imgJerome Smith is heading to the NFL. George McDonald plans to implement a “full-bore fast” offense. Terrel Hunt is much more comfortable running the show and has a revamped receiving corps to throw to.Many elements of Syracuse’s offense will be entirely different in the coming months, but Prince-Tyson Gulley expects one component to remain constant.SU will continue to run the ball regularly.“It’s a running backs’ school,” Gulley said, “so that’s what we plan to do. We’ve just got to put in the work, and they’re giving us a shot to make plays for the offense.”Gulley, George Morris II, Devante McFarlane and Adonis Ameen-Moore will look to fill the void left by Smith, one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s most prolific backs a season ago. Gulley and Co. know their ability to consistently produce will be imperative when SU enters its second season in the ACC, and are working diligently this spring to ensure there isn’t a drop-off with Smith gone.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSmith rushed 200 times last season, racking up 914 yards and 12 touchdowns. Gulley carried the ball 83 times for 456 yards and four touchdowns, while Morris and McFarlane each picked up close to 300 yards and found the end zone once.With Smith gone, everyone moves up a spot. Gulley, who was the clear-cut second back last season and is the expected starter in the fall, knows replacing Smith will be a challenge, but it’s one he’s ready to tackle.“I don’t like to bring all the light on me,” Gulley said, “but it’s a good feeling that I am No. 1 right now. I know that comes with a lot of stuff that I have to carry.”Namely, the ball. Gulley said he expects close to 20 carries per game, up from 7.6 in 2013. He believes he’ll get 5–7 targets out of the backfield per game after catching just 15 total passes a season ago.Gulley said he’s very comfortable running routes and catching Hunt’s passes — he’s not exclusively a rusher.“Tyson never had to adjust to being the No. 1 back,” Hunt said. “We had Jerome as the No. 1 back, but they were both the No. 1 backs in reality. Tyson’s not adjusting at all.”Whether or not Gulley shines or struggles in his increased role, he’ll have a slew of backups ready to decrease some of the burden.Morris and McFarlane are preparing for a surge in carries, as well.Morris said he felt more at ease as the season progressed last year. He had the apprehension and nerves that often come with being a freshman to start, but they quickly subsided.“In the beginning I wasn’t as fluid,” Morris said. “I wasn’t myself. As the season went on I got more carries and I got more comfortable.”Gulley said he feels as though Morris’ speed is one of his best assets. Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said Morris broke free for a 15–20-yard run in SU’s scrimmage last Tuesday.Morris said his main focus this spring is to work on protecting Hunt. When the ball isn’t handed off to him or thrown in his direction, he knows blocking is imperative to both stay on the field and help the offense click.Shafer said he’s been pleased with McFarlane’s vision. He said he’s especially lethal inside and that he’s also capable of taking it against the grain.“George and Devante, they’re doing exactly what they should be,” Hunt said. “What they’re trying to do is learn protection better. We all know they can run.”Even Ameen-Moore, who carried the ball just five times last season, is coming on strong, Shafer said. He said Ameen-Moore, a rising senior, “sees some light at the end of the tunnel,” and is continuing to push SU’s top three backs.“It’s a friendly competition,” Gulley said. “We’re always clowning each other, letting everybody know. We got a little joke about who catches balls and stuff like that. It’s always a competition, but we keep it in the room.” Comments Published on March 31, 2014 at 11:59 pm Contact Trevor: | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
