Gators ready to keep running against Vanderbilt

first_imgNASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Sticking to the ground sure helped the Florida Gators cut back their mistakes.Now the Gators must prove they keep it up.”People are going to game plan our run, and there are great defensive coordinators out there that are going to look at the tape and see what they can do to stop us,” Florida center Max Garcia said. “But … as an offensive line we’re going to go out there and just keep blocking people and finishing people to the ground.”The Gators’ ground and pound approach routed then-No. 9 Georgia 38-20 last weekend, rolling up 418 yards on 60 rushes. It was Florida’s best production against a Southeastern Conference team since 1975 when the Gators ran for 454 against Vanderbilt, helping Treon Harris throw only six passes in his first start at quarterback.Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said he expects the Gators to expand their offense since they had time to plan ahead with an open date before beating Georgia. He also wants his Commodores to help force Florida’s hand.”I think they’re going to throw the ball more than six times if we can slow down the run game,” Mason said.That win tamped down talk of Florida coach Will Muschamp’s job security. The Gators (4-3, 3-3) now even have an outside shot at the SEC Eastern Division title if they get some help and take win themselves starting Saturday night at Vanderbilt (3-6, 0-5). Muschamp said the Gators must be focused only on Vanderbilt.”If we don’t take care of our business, nothing else matters and that’s kind of where we’re at at this point,” Muschamp said.The Commodores have found something offensively themselves. Redshirt freshman Johnny McCrary tied a school record throwing five touchdown passes, each to a different receiver, as Vanderbilt thumped Old Dominion 42-28 for a second win in three games.Vanderbilt has a chance at a rare winning streak over Florida after a 34-17 win in the Swamp last year, though the Commodores have lost 11 straight to the Gators in Nashville.”We want an SEC win,” Vanderbilt linebacker Nigel Bowden said.___Here are some things to watch as the Gators visit Vanderbilt:DYNAMIC DUO: Florida running backs Matt Jones and Kelvin Taylor are hoping to back up their best games. Jones ran for a career-high 192 yards and two touchdowns in a dominant win against Georgia, and Taylor added a career-best 197 yards and two scores. It was the most any duo has ever run for at Florida. “Both of us were hot,” Taylor said. “We feel like no one can stop us once we get hot. … If we can keep doing that, we’re going to have great success. I think we can keep doing that for the rest of the year.”GAINESVILLE NATIVE: Vanderbilt has its own running sensation in redshirt freshman Ralph Webb. He set freshmen records last week with 31 carries for 166 yards against Old Dominion, and he only needs 39 yards to become Vanderbilt’s all-time leading freshman rusher. Webb also is the SEC’s top freshman rusher and ranks sixth overall in the SEC with 760 yards rushing. Webb said Florida recruited him and not joining the Gators doesn’t bother him now. “Whenever you play a guy like that, I’m sure he has a chip on his shoulder,” Muschamp said. “It doesn’t look like it’s just against the Gators, it’s against everybody.”MORE PASSING: Making his first career start, Treon Harris threw just six passes against the Bulldogs. The Gators figure they’ll have to expand the passing game down the stretch, probably beginning against the Commodores.WHERE’S ROBINETTE: Patton Robinette started at quarterback for Vanderbilt last year in the Swamp, and he started this season at quarterback before a couple of injuries. He’s backed up McCrary the past two games, and Mason said they have some tricks waiting up their sleeves.INJURED GATORS: Florida will be without a couple starters. Safety Keanu Neal has a high ankle injury, while right guard Trenton Brown, who has started six of seven games this year, is out with a bone bruise in his knee.___AP Sports Writer Mark Long contributed to this report from Gainesville, Florida.___Online:AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org/___Follow Teresa M.

Everton have made request for centre back – Club unwilling to…

first_imgEverton have made a request for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, but the Serie A side are not willing to let him go. The Blues are expected to be busy this month, with Carlo Ancelotti given assurances about the transfer window before joining the club.Adding a central defender to the squad is likely to be high on the agenda, with just three senior centre backs in the squad at present.Rugani is one they have looked at, according to Rai Sport journalist Ciro Venerato, although their hopes of getting him seem low to non-existent.Embed from Getty Images“Rugani has also been outgoing, but will remain until June despite requests from Leicester, Arsenal and Everton,” he told Calciotoday.“Chiellini will not be 100% before March, so it is better to take precautions by keeping another central.”That leaves the three clubs, notably Everton, looking elsewhere for the central defender that they need.In truth, though, a move for Rugani would make sense for all parties. Everton can offer him the playing time he needs, and Ancelotti will be more than aware of him after his recent spell managing in Italy.With Juventus not keen on selling, though, it seems any attempt they make for him at the minute will be rejected outright.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 50?

Congress extends EB-5 Green Card Investor Program until September 30, 2016

first_imgIn a last minute move, Congress passed a so called “Omnibus” funding Bill to fund the U.S. government for the year 2016, which included a provision to extend the popular EB-5 Investor Visa (Green Card) program until September 30, 2016.The Bill extends the program without any changes, including allowing investors to  continue to receive Green Cards through Regional Centers and business investments in specified areas within the U.S. for $500,000. This came as a big surprise, since a bipartisan deal had already been agreed on by both Democrats and Republicans to drastically reform the program, including increasing the minimum investment to between $800,000 to $1.2 Million. However, in the end, due to the complexity of  new provisions in the proposed measure, Congress opted instead to spend additional time work out the technical details before making the new program permanent.last_img read more

Saquon Barkley reveals challenge Tom Brady gave him during the offseason

first_imgBut Barkley said the six-time Super Bowl champion had a challenge for him.“It’s great to do it for one season, but can you do it for five? Can you do it for 10?” Barkley recalled (via NJ.com). “I’m standing there at the Met Gala ready to run through a brick wall.” Related News Four-game preseason ‘not necessary,’ Falcons owner Arthur Blank says Broncos’ Jake Butt ‘may miss some time’ with new knee issue, reportedly needs surgery The two will meet again in Week 6 of the regular season. Capt. Andrew Luck pens farewell to ‘mighty unit’ At 42 years old, Brady is entering his 20th season with the Patriots. Barkley, on the other hand, is 20 years younger than Brady and preparing to start just his second season in the league.The running back explained how much the veteran’s advice meant to him, and said “sometimes you take it for granted.””To able to talk to legends that you’ve been watching for a very long time? Every day I talk to one with Eli [Manning]. You don’t really take the time to cherish it. You are so caught up in the moment. Sometimes, you have to take a step back,” Barkley said.The Giants and Patriots will play against each other in their final preseason game Thursday, though it’s unlikely Barkley and Brady will play as teams tend to rest its starters during exhibition games. Giants running back Saquon Barkley revealed a challenge he received from Patriots veteran quarterback Tom Brady earlier this offseason, which he said made him feel “ready to run through a brick wall.”Brady congratulated Barkley for his standout rookie season, where he rushed for 1,307 yards and had 721 receiving with a total of 15 touchdowns after he was selected with the second overall pick of the 2018 draft. He also was named the 2018 NFL Rookie of the Year, beating out Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, who was the top pick in Barkley’s draft class.last_img read more
