Messi still not fully fitMadrid, Spain | AFP | Barcelona threw on their stars of the present and the future on Saturday but neither Lionel Messi nor Ansu Fati could save them from a dismal 2-0 defeat away at Granada.Messi was still not deemed fit enough to start at Los Carmenes while Fati, the 16-year-old who has lit up La Liga in recent weeks, also began the game on the bench.But while both came on at half-time with Barca trailing to Ramon Azeez’s opener, it was Granada that scored again, Alvaro Vadillo converting a penalty after Arturo Vidal was found guilty of a handball.Barcelona have now won only two of their opening five league games and none away from Camp Nou, this their second loss already, just one fewer than the three they suffered during the entirety of last season.With seven points on the board, this is their worst start to a season since 1994.“Obviously I am worried,” said coach Ernesto Valverde. “Because we are not getting good results and when that happens in two or three games, it means we are not playing well.”Instead, Granada go top of the table after capitalising on Atletico Madrid’s goalless draw at home to Celta Vigo a few hours before.They will stay there until Sunday, when Sevilla, Real Madrid or Athletic Bilbao could overtake them.Barcelona are sixth, grasping onto the consolation of Messi’s second substitute appearance in five days that now suggests he has finally recovered from the niggling calf injury sustained at the start of August.Their problems though are unlikely to be solved simply by their captain’s return.Junior Firpo’s error two minutes into his first start for the club gifted Granada their opening goal and set the tone for a chaotic night in defence.And up front, Antoine Griezmann was quiet again, with little in any of the combinations to suggest Ernesto Valverde has yet worked out who will form his best attacking trio and in what positions.“In the end, the coach is responsible and I feel responsible,” Valverde said. “I always think you can win or lose but at least you have to deserve to win when you lose, and today it hasn’t been like that.”Firpo’s mistake came early, as he shaped to play a long ball over the top back to his goalkeeper. Instead, the lively Roberto Soldado stole possession and slipped in Antonio Puertas. – Messi impact limited –With Firpo on the floor, Gerard Pique scrambled across but Puertas’ shot only looped up off the defender to the back post where Azeez headed in.Granada seemed hungrier than Barca and their dominance persuaded Valverde to make two changes at half-time, Messi and Fati replacing Carles Perez and Firpo.Messi won a free-kick 30 yards out but hit it straight at the wall while Marc-Andre ter Stegen fumbled a cross and had to react quickly to claw it back off his own line.Any hopes of a Barca comeback were dashed in the 66th minute as Vidal handballed at the end of a scramble in the box and Vadillo made no mistake with the spot-kick.One break saw Messi supply Fati but the teenager took too long and then Messi tried himself but his shot was straight at the goalkeeper. In the end, Granada were comfortable winners.Atletico could have returned to the top of La Liga but were frustrated by a determined Celta Vigo.After coming from two goals down to salvage a point against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday, Atletico failed to sustain the momentum in a match of few chances at the Wanda Metropolitano.Diego Simeone’s side won their opening three league games but are now two without a victory, following last weekend’s shock defeat away at Real Sociedad.This latest setback leaves Simeone with familiar questions to answer about his side’s attacking threat.Summer signing Joao Felix started before being replaced by Alvaro Morata in the second half, the Spanish striker available again after recovering from a knee injury.But neither Felix nor Morata, or their partner Diego Costa, could conjur up the decisive opening, with full-backs Renan Lodi and Kieran Trippier by far the team’s most creative outlets.Share on: WhatsApp
by Malik VincentFor New Pittsburgh Courier Allderdice head coach Andre McDonald preaches defensive toughness to his players. If you ask anyone on his staff or someone he’s coached, he swears by it. So much, that the Dragons have proudly sported “HAWK-D” on their warm-ups for the past five years, and this season on their uniforms. But they aren’t the only ones who do.“It was uplifting to hear the entire student body chanting HAWK-D,” McDonald said. “It was really motivation to our guys to play the best game that we could.” ‘HAWK-D’—The Allderdice boys celebrate with the championship trophy after defeating Perry 73-63 in the City League championship game March 5. (Courier photo/William McBride/File) Led by senior Cameron Bailey’s 22 points and Eric Mallinger’s near triple-double, Allderdice (12-4, 17-7) won its second consecutive City League boys basketball Championship over top-seeded Perry, 73-63, at Peabody High School March 5.“It was a great contest,” Bailey said. “But I have to give much credit to our coaching staff, they had a great scouting report and they did everything they could to get us prepared for battle.”Perry had been the favorite to win it all after surrendering one conference game all year and defeating Allderdice in both of their regular season meetings.“I realized we needed to be prepared this time,” McDonald added. “We broke down the film from the last four meetings and made sure that we were going to come out and compete at our highest level.”Junior guard Justin Dobbs added a game-high 23 points for the Dragons but admits that he got off to a slow start.“My shot was off early so I eventually got to a point where I was just trying to get to the foul line.” Dobbs said. “We started to run the pick and roll and once that happened, I was fortunate enough to start making good decisions with the basketball.”Mallinger finished with nine points, 11 blocks, and 16 rebounds.“I knew that the offense was going to come,” Mallinger said. “I take pride in doing what I need to do on the defensive end. The coaches and I don’t even need to discuss that. I just try to go out there every game and crash the boards, as well as to make plays on defense.”Perry’s normal leading scorer, Marcus Smith, was held to only 10 points for the Commodores (15-1, 21-4). They were led by Bruce Grover’s 19 points and Greg McGhee’s 16, 11 of which he converted from the free-throw line.“We set out to build a strong program from top to bottom,” Allderdice assistant coach Jason Rivers said. “We’re the only team in the city that has a ninth grade program that feeds into our junior varsity, and goes into varsity. These kids do a tremendous job to get prepared to come up and win in this level.”(Reprinted from the March 9, New Pittsburgh Courier.)
Your first half summary from Stillwater. pic.twitter.com/JGkxT6nsYr— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) October 3, 2015• It really is crazy that in college football, for all the game planning and recruiting and playcalling and everything that goes into it … games so often come down to which team has the better soccer player.• This made me laugh.• Boone is the GOAT.• Speaking of Boone.These finishes can’t be good for T Boone’s heart. Oklahoma State 33 seconds from another last-minute Big 12 win.— Travis Haney (@travhaney) October 3, 2015• This tweet is pretty much everything. I think it’s the tweet of the year so far.@pistolsguy Moses could have led the Israelites through that A L-gap on the blocked PAT.— Clifton Hall (@Clifhangeriam) October 3, 2015 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

I tried to write 10 thoughts on the OSU-Kansas State game on Saturday, but, for the second straight week, failed to make much sense out of what I just watched. That’s what the notebook is for, though. Here’s everything I wrote down during a wild one at BPS.• Joe Hubener, as Carson Cunningham pointed out in the podcast this week, is the most Kansas State quarterback name of all time.• Not totally sure I get the Chris Carson thing. He’s medically cleared to play but we’re not playing him because … ? Is not 60 percent of Chris Carson as good or maybe better than 100 percent of Raymond Taylor and Jeff Carr? Or at least just to have another body out there.AdChoices广告• When is the last time you saw a No. 19 at QB? That was bizarre.• It would have been the most Bill Snyder on a long, long list of Bill Snyder things to win a conference road game with a 5th string QB who was a former JUCO walk-on playing wide receiver. And he almost pulled it off. Of course it’s also fitting that KSU’s best passer is playing wide receiver.OH in the press box: “That’s one of the best passes in Kansas State history” haha— Kyle Fredrickson (@kylefredrickson) October 3, 2015• One of the announcers on the FS1 broadcast noted “Mason Rudolph is not a good QB when he has somebody in his face.” Neither is Tom Brady.• Maybe Rudolph’s fingers are numb because he claps loud enough for every human being in the state of Oklahoma to hear him.• Congrats if you had $100 on Snyder rocking his Alamo Bowl windbreaker at 3-1 odds.• I loved that Rudolph absolutely buried the Texas game six minutes into this one. No questions from me but it’s not like there was no smoke there with him and Walsh. He put it away forever.• Marcell Ateman has been secretly good so far this season which is pretty much the exact opposite of the rest of career in which he was pretty openly below average.• Kansas State’s first half offensive line vs. an NFC All-Star defensive line. Who you got?• Something I wrote during the first half: “At least we (probably) don’t tweet during halftime!”• This is amazing.I once had this conversation from a girl’s phone with Miketavius Jones pic.twitter.com/aPZdLOZUl8— Aria Ghajar (@Aria_Ghajar) October 3, 2015• That backwards pass fumble thing (because what else could we call it?) was … not good. I blame, well, everyone. But mostly I blame the offensive line for not giving Rudolph the .7 seconds he needed to throw the ball.• FOX kept showing Walsh like there was some sort of mild controversy. Good job, good effort, FOX.• The hold by Victor Salako will get more attention for the first down gift OSU received, but that ball Rudolph threw to Jhajuan Seales in double coverage.???• Clown show!Can someone help this man, he’s truly lost. pic.twitter.com/nadoXeLMcY— Daxx’s Arm (@daxx_s) October 3, 2015• I’ll probably talk about this more late, but OSU wasn’t even pretending to run. Like the opposite of Texas last week. That makes what Rudolph did that much more impressive.• Can somebody not get Gundy a clipboard or a play sheet or literally anything so he doesn’t have to keep cupping his mouth when he talks into his headset? Is that not in the budget?• What do we do about the fact that OSU looked better without a RB than it has so far this season with two?• Two questions on Hubener: 1. Why was he warming up? Snyder was riding the crap out of that Kody Cook heater as long as possible. 2. How was Hubener not concussed and how in the world did he come back in?• Dave always brings the heat.Low oil prices & we can’t stop K-State. Is it 1999?— Dave Hudson (@okc_dave) October 3, 2015• That two-point conversion. I appreciate the effort and Rudolph deserves an Emmy. The irony is that Walsh up the middle probably would have been sufficient.• OSU’s leading rusher into the third quarter (a few minutes into it) was Jalen McCleskey. How much money could you have made on that?• Why is Brandon Sheperd covering punts? Also, I love you, OSU fans, but it doesn’t matter if Kansas State’s punt returner waves his hand 10 seconds before catching it or after catching it. If he doesn’t have the ball, you can’t touch him, much less lay him out.• This is a play call. It’s also Mason singing the school song.• David Glidden is tough as crap. That is all.• I’ve probably said it 10 times since the game ended, but OSU did a great job of game planning around its weaknesses. I don’t know that you can do it all season, but until the middle of October, it’s worked.• This is not untrue.We needed to win that game. We dominated 2nd half and dumb mistakes kept it close.— Adam Lunt (@AdamLunt817) October 3, 2015• Nobody gets hit like Jalen McCleskey gets hit. He gets smoked.• Kansas State tried to bleed the game out for most of the second half after Cook’s first two passes. I don’t blame them, but outside of that 72-yard pass from Hubener, they had nothing. They were (somehow) actually helped twice by their QB getting knocked out of the game.• This made me laugh.Kansas State about to put in a 47 year old medical billing specialist they pulled out of the stands ten minutes ago and win this game— BUM CHILLUPS (@edsbs) October 3, 2015• Emmanuel Ogbah now has a sack in 11 of his last 13 games. I play in an OSU fantasy football league (I know, I know) and I’ve drafted him in three out of the five weeks. It’s easy money.• Challenge for future OSU broadcasters: Try to make it through an OSU game without comparing Glidden to Wes Welker.• How good would KSU’s 6th-string QB have been? VY? Jameis? Charlie Ward?• Clint Chelf remains the best.Pick 6. Cover. #??— Clint Chelf (@Cchelf10) October 3, 2015• The intentional grounding on the handoff to one of the 39 Gronkowski brothers was a huge play because it took KSU to the edge of field goal range. Also, I cannot believe a Gronkowski brother did something boneheaded!• Rudolph needs to work on his fist pump.• Spencer.When their 5th string QB can’t stop making throws. pic.twitter.com/thCIQQ5sK8— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) October 3, 2015• I loved that on its biggest play of the season to date, KSU went to a big white guy named Dayton Valentine who beat Kevin Peterson in the end zone. #Snyder• Speaking of that sequence, did it take more or less than five minutes for the Hubener option to develop when they took the lead 34-33?• First half summary (and next season of True Detective).
