Big East ships Pittsburgh to face Utah

first_imgAt 3:25 Sunday afternoon, the large gathering of Ute players, coaches and boosters at the Spence Eccles Field House, who had been dining on ribs and mashed potatoes for more than an hour, erupted in cheers when they saw the matchup on the large screen.Utah vs. Pittsburgh in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, Ariz., on Jan. 1.Not that it was a big surprise or anything. Everyone was confident such a matchup would happen and the Ute football team had even been looking at film of Pitt already and started preparations for the Panthers as a likely opponent.Some Utes had clung to the outside possibility of going to the Sugar or Rose bowls, but the only surprise when the four BCS bowls were announced on ABC-TV was Texas going to the Rose Bowl instead of California. And the many Ute boosters who had already made their reservations for Arizona were relieved.The upbeat celebration inside the new indoor facility went on for another hour following the announcement as a few hundred Ute supporters mingled on the artificial turf and got autographs from players and coaches.Ute quarterback Alex Smith was in the middle of an interview when the news hit the big screen.”I’m pumped,” he said. “All the teams that got into the BCS are good teams. All we wanted was the chance to get on the national stage against a formidable opponent that we could play and we got that opportunity.”Smith wouldn’t acknowledge he was disappointed about not playing a higher-ranked opponent, saying, “Pitt’s a good team; they’re the champions of the Big East. I’m totally focused on this game and trying to prepare to play Pitt.”Several fans were wearing sombreros and a couple of guys in bright yellow blazers representing the Fiesta Bowl were conspicuous amid the sea of red.”I’m proud as heck of Utah,” said former Fiesta Bowl President Purd Thomas. “They’re a first-class program with a first-class football team. I’m confident they’ll represent themselves and the football team with great class and I’m confident the community will support their effort.”Utah’s director of athletic ticket sales Dave Copier said that the school had already sold out its allotment of 27,500 tickets. However Thomas emphasized that other tickets were available and fans who want to go shouldn’t give up.”There’s a way to find tickets” he said, suggesting fans contact the university or the Fiesta Bowl directly.Ute coach Urban Meyer bounced around the indoor facility, talking to fans, signing autographs and doing interviews for both the local press and national television. He deflected all questions about his new job at Florida, particularly when asked about it on national TV. “This is all about Utah,” he said.Meyer said he has been to the Fiesta Bowl before when he was an assistant at Notre Dame and he said, “In my opinion this is the best bowl game out there.””We are really excited to be part of this,” Meyer said. “At the start of the season this became the light at the end of our tunnel and our goal was to get to the Fiesta Bowl.”The players on hand for the celebration were adamant that Meyer’s decision to leave Utah for Florida will have no effect on the Utes’ performance in four weeks.”The biggest thing I’m excited for is the BCS, but another big thing is the attention is off the coaching situation,” said senior defensive lineman Sione Pouha. “When it comes right down to it, everybody’s going to go where they’re going to go, but you’re still going to have 106 guys getting up at 6 in the morning doing what we’ve got to do.” “This will be the best Utah football team you’ve ever seen come Fiesta Bowl time,” said Morgan Scalley. “As thankful as we are to the coaches — we love them — who are getting great job offers, it’s still the players that play the games. And the seniors, the leaders of the this football team, are going to make sure this football team is prepared.” Related E-mail: [email protected] Utes get official Fiesta Bowl invite — but are losing coaches 34th annual Tostitos Fiesta Bowllast_img read more

Saints blast Spartans to move within a win of fourth BCIHL title

first_imgFacing BCIHL Second All-Star Team goaltender Silas Matthys who backstopped his team a first round upset over Simon Fraser University in last weekend’s semi-final, the Saints pounced quickly.Defenceman McLeod’s shot from the point eluded Matthys just 24 seconds into the game for a 1-0 lead.The Saints then peppered Matthys with seven shots in the first five minutes where they dominated play. A pair of penalties in the second half of the first period doused Selkirk’s momentum and Jamey Kreller scored on a breakaway to tie the score with two minutes left in opening 20.Sookro scored 25 seconds into the second period when he stuffed away a rebound that came after Dane Feeney dangled through three Spartan defenders.Calvin gave the Saints a two goal lead seven minutes into the second when he fired a laser top shelf over Matthys’ blocker. Selkirk’s third powerplay goal of the period also came courtesy Calvin with helpers from fellow Beaver Valley Nitehawk alum Edwards and Sookro.Vlanich scored his fourth of the post-season midway through the third when he moved with purpose through the Spartans’ zone on a great individual effort.Trinity Western threw 11 shots on Prigione in the gritty final period where the intensity is sure to carry forward to Saturday night’s Game Two. The British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League’s (BCIHL) championship best-of-three final opened Friday night at the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex with a 5-1 Selkirk College Saints victory over the Trinity Western University Spartans.Game two of the series goes Saturday at 7 p.m. tonight in Castlegar at the Arena Complex with the Saints looking for a league record fourth straight BCIHL title.Ryan Edwards played set-up man with four assists, Dallas Calvin scored a pair with Ashton McLeod, Ryon Sookro and Jamie Vlanich providing the rest of the offence.Saints starting goaltender and recently announced BCIHL First Team All-Star James Prigione stopped 24 shots in the win.last_img read more

And if I wasn’t going to do that, then I would be free to leave the club. That’s when I told him I was going to be ready to fight here and help the club progress.“So, yeah, I’m not wasting any more time. I’ve got my head down again and I’m doing all right at the minute. I’m trying to get back to where I was a couple of years ago.  And I hope I’m showing that in my performances.”POCHETTI-NO! Spurs ban press from asking Mauricio Pochettino about Manchester UnitedHe certainly is. Rose, now the club’s longest-serving player after signing from Leeds in 2007, is producing the consistent levels of performance which once marked him out as one of Europe’s finest defenders.Straight-talking Rose lost his way at White Hart Lane when he was out for eight months with the knee injury suffered in a tackle with Sunderland’s Billy Jones during a goalless draw at the Stadium of Light.Yet it was not until the end of the 2017-18 season that the Spurs medical team declared that surgery was required.And his frustration boiled over in a hard-hitting exclusive with The Sun at the start of the following season when he questioned the club’s pay structure and transfer policy.6 Danny Rose was forced out of action for eight months after suffering injury in a collision with Sunderland defender Billy JonesCredit: Getty ImagesThose outspoken comments led to him being disciplined by the club at a time when he had been diagnosed with depression by the club psychologist,  due to personal issues affecting his family.By the time Rose was finally ready to return to action last October, Ben Davies had established himself at left-back.And even though Rose did just enough to force his way back into England’s World Cup squad, he was still unsure of his Spurs status when he returned from Russia.6 Rose is the longest-serving player at TottenhamCredit: ReutersPochettino’s tough love has proved to be just what the doctor ordered for Rose, who was handed the captain’s armband for Wednesday’s 2-0 Carabao Cup win at Arsenal.He can finally see some light at the end of a very dark tunnel and wants to make the most of this revival to achieve his personal goals with Spurs.Rose added: “Captaining the team was a very proud moment for me, especially as we won.“When I look back to where I was a year ago, I wasn’t playing too often. Now I’ve played three games in a week, drawing with Barcelona in the Champions League, winning a difficult game against Burnley, then beating Arsenal. So it’s been a great week for myself and for the team.”6 Rose was named captain by Pochettino for the Carabao Cup North London derby win over ArsenalCredit: EPABut after 11 years at Spurs without a winner’s medal, Rose is not content just to aim for another top-four finish this term.With talk swirling over Pochettino’s future, Rose is acutely aware of the need to deliver some long-overdue silverware.He said: “The majority of this team have been together for four or five years.

Instagram Has Made Me an iPhone Photo Addict

first_imgTags:#mobile#web Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces I have a new favorite iPhone app. And I’m not alone. After only a week in the iPhone App Store, the photo-sharing app Instagram has won not just the adoration of many in the tech media, but has netted well over 100,000 users. And according to co-founder Kevin Systrom, Instagram is now counting new user sign-ups by the minute and counting photo uploads by the second.Instagram is a free app, a simple photo-sharing tool that allows you to snap pictures and easily post them to your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Flickr accounts. You can follow others via Instagram’s social network, allowing you to view and comment on others’ photos. Instagram also includes 11 filters for your photos, turning the photos taken by the camera phone – photos that even under the steadiest of hands and keenest of eyes tend to be rather mediocre – from the mundane to the spectacular. The improvements to the camera on the iPhone 4 have spurred a lot of new photography apps. So Instagram has benefited from being, in the words of Systrom, in the “right place at the right time.” And I’d add to that, particularly with the crowded field, from having a simple but stellar product.Systrom says that Instagram aims to tackle three areas that other photo apps and sharing sites haven’t quite nailed: high quality photos, an easy sharing process, and speedy uploads. And while the first part certainly makes for eye-catching photography – Instagram’s filters seem to give the most banal shots a new depth and mood – the latter two shouldn’t be discounted. As Systrom noted in an interview today, the overwhelming response to the app has put some strain on the servers. And, he noted, during the brief times when the service has dropped and people have been unable to share, new registrations have gone done. Clearly, part of what’s attractive to users is that they can take photos, adjust them with the filters, and share them not just with other Instagram users but to other social networking sites – all within the app, and all within a matter of seconds.Instagram is a two-person team, Systrom and co-founder Mike Krieger, who pivoted to this app from Burbn, a location-based service, that raised $500,000 from Andreessen Horowitz and Baseline Ventures. Instagram is a great example of doing one thing simply and doing it well, and although Systrom says there are plans to improve the app, the emphasis for the time being is on maintaining the stability of the service, as the viral download rate and adoption of Instagram have not just exceeded the team’s initial expectations but server size as well.center_img What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement audrey watterslast_img read more
