Swarbrick addresses students

first_imgNotre Dame Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick stopped into both campus dining halls during lunch Wednesday to challenge and caution students. “We have a really important football game the Saturday you return from fall break,” Swarbrick said to a full dining room in South Dining Hall, referring to the Oct. 22 game against USC. “I need two things from you to make that night successful.” Swarbrick acknowledged a hotly contested sentiment among Irish fans, commented on the energetic atmosphere, or lack thereof, of Notre Dame Stadium and encouraged the Irish student body to take matters into its own hands. “I need your passion,” he said. “I travel around with our team, and our stadium is the quietest place we play. I want you guys on that Saturday night at least once to make USC have a false start penalty.” To close his two-minute cameo and let students return to their meals, Swarbrick reminded them that though it may be a night game, usual behavior would be expected. “We haven’t had a night game here in a long time because people are concerned about having a game that late and the consequences it will have on our conduct,” he said. “You can solve that problem. So help us on that Saturday night to make the loudest, most raucous, but safe environment in college football.”last_img read more

McVeigh full of praise for O’Neill

first_img “It’s a revenge mission because it’s the one result which has not gone our way,” said McVeigh, who was speaking at the Ball Street studios filming of the Vauxhall Home Nations Football Show. “I wouldn’t necessarily say we should have won the game but I don’t think we deserved to lose 2-0 either. “So we know what we’re up against and beating Romania would be the biggest step towards qualification. “We’ve got the Faroe Islands next in September and two wins from the last five games might be enough to qualify. “Taking the three points to go top of the group would be huge, but beating the group leaders would be an even bigger psychological boost.” McVeigh admires O’Neill for the way he has approached the Northern Ireland job since being appointed manager in December 2011. The former Norwich man says the set-up is now more professional than when he played international football a nd that O’Neill’s faith in hungry players with a point to prove has paid off. “The team now stay in the best hotels and for the recent friendly with Qatar at Crewe the squad used Manchester City’s training ground,” McVeigh said. “That ultra-professionalism rubs off on people. “He told the IFA (Irish Football Association) they had to match his professionalism off the pitch if Northern Ireland were going to be successful and it has worked. “On the pitch he has been loyal to players who have done well for him and that’s all you want as a player. “Look at the way he has treated right-back Conor McLaughlin who plays for Fleetwood. “He could easily have brought in Manchester United’s Paddy McNair or former captain Aaron Hughes to replace him, but he has stuck with McLaughlin and it’s great to see older or bigger players don’t just trump others because of their reputation.” :: Watch the Vauxhall Home Nations Football Show with Ian Wright, Paul McVeigh, Kevin Gallacher and Iwan Roberts – subscribe to VauxhallFootball TV on YouTube or go to Vauxhall Football | Fanbase “Back in 1982 Northern Ireland had top players like Pat Jennings, Sammy McIlroy and Martin O’Neill,” said McVeigh, who won 20 caps between 1999 and 2004. “Now it’s a case of up and coming players, so I think it would be a better achievement than 1982. “Look at Wales and they have got the best of the best in Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. “We’ve got nothing like that but what Michael O’Neill has done is get the most out of a group of players he has been loyal to. “I’ve spoken to a lot of the players and they’ve told me the preparation is ridiculous because it is so thorough and nothing is left to chance.” Northern Ireland have not qualified for a major tournament since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico but they would be within touching distance of France next summer if they were to beat Romania in Belfast on Saturday night. Group F leaders Romania are the only team to have taken points off Northern Ireland during qualifying with O’Neill’s side having won their four other games. Romania won 2-0 in Bucharest last November when full-back Paul Papp scored twice in the last 20 minutes and McVeigh believes Northern Ireland have a score to settle. That World Cup is generally regarded as the high point of Northern Irish football when Billy Bingham’s side beat hosts Spain 1-0 to top their group and reach the second round of the tournament. But McVeigh reckons that proud achievement would pale in comparison to the current side qualifying for the Euro 2016 finals – considering the group of unheralded players manager Michael O’Neill has at his disposal. Former Northern Ireland international Paul McVeigh believes reaching next summer’s European Championship finals would top the nation’s heroics at the 1982 World Cup.

Nick Mellen’s skills on defense will help against Cornell’s top attackman

first_imgSyracuse defender Nick Mellen didn’t want to admit that his four-year teammate, Andrew Helmer, was right: That Mellen takes getting beat one-on-one personally.“Andrew knows me pretty well,” Mellen said. “So, I would never come out and just say that, but yeah, that’s pretty accurate.” A week prior, Helmer attributed Mellen’s play to his mindset. He gets angry when an attacker gets behind him. So mad that it doesn’t happen often. “It’s that same ‘kill-or-be-killed’ mindset that I’ve always kind of came up with,” Mellen said. “For me, Helmer hit it right on the head: I do not like getting beat. At anything, for that matter.”Mellen’s parlayed that subtle rage, his “freak” athleticism and immense skill set into a role as No. 11 Syracuse’s (6-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) lockdown defender. Every week this season, Mellen has latched onto the opponent’s main ball handler, constricting their space, options and in part, slows down an entire offense. Tuesday night in the Carrier Dome against No. 10 Cornell (7-3, 2-2 Ivy League), the defender head coach John Desko called a “luxury” will hound Jeff Teat, the Big Red’s top threat and help stymie one of the country’s best offenses.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTeat currently ranks seventh in assists per game (2.89) and ninth in points per game (5.11). A native of Ontario, Canada, the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Teat brings a skillset common of Canadian attackers who grew up playing box lacrosse — the ability to make highlight-reel passes while blanketed by defenders.Desko marveled at Teat’s ability to lead fellow attackers with passes, something rarely seen in lacrosse. He also noted Teat sees the field better than most. Thus, in 41 career games at Cornell, the junior has 130 assists, more than three a game. He tied the record for fastest player to 100 points (18 games). And in the last three games, he’s totaled 20 points — including a five-goal, three-helper outing on Sunday.TJ Shaw | Staff PhotographerDespite historic success, though, Teat’s numbers in three games against Syracuse, and two against Mellen, are below his averages. Though he notches three assists a game against the Orange, Teat’s only scored four goals against SU in his career and just two when defended by Mellen.“Nick has, I think, done fairly well against him in the past,” Desko said. “He’s been able to put the ball on the ground. We’ve shut him off at times with Nick so he can’t get the ball and see what the other five players on offense will do.” Leaving a facilitator as little space as possible, Mellen said, is one of his main focuses in defending against them. Against Teat, specifically, Mellen said he’ll need to “stay on his hands,” trying to keep his stick physically against Teat’s gloves as much as possible. Because Mellen overmatches Teat physically, Cornell will likely set frequent picks to get him free. If Mellen keeps Teat nearby maneuvering around the picks, he can try to dispossess Teat. Mellen, who played Teat into four turnovers in April 2018, can knock the ball free, for a ground ball opportunity or swipe the ball from Teat’s stick, taking possession himself “It’s very difficult,” Helmer said of dispossessing opponents while simultaneously taking possession. “He’s obviously one of the few guys in the country that can probably do that.”Mellen studies all his matchups on film, sneaking in clips outside of team film sessions. During pregame warmups, Mellen takes free moments to wander the middle of the field, observing his mark like a circling hawk. He analyzes them — looking for something he hasn’t seen on film, things that can only be gauged then and there.  “I love watching my opponent in pregame warm-ups,” Mellen said. “Seeing how he’s moving, feeling his body language out.”Susie Teuscher | Digital Design EditorThe mental game is what sets Mellen apart. He knows his opponent and their tendencies, and has practiced them so thoroughly that he can go step-for-step. More than anything, Mellen simply can’t stand losing. When Mellen lets up a goal, he gets “pissed off,” he said. He tries to internalize his anger, barking to teammates and coaches that he won’t allow it to happen twice. “In my head I’m trying to compose all those emotions, but at the same time I’m so frustrated and so heated that I physically and mentally will not let that happen again because I’m that pissed,” Mellen said.Mellen’s squad is 0-2 against Cornell with Teat on the Big Red. Despite slowing the top-tier attacker, Cornell eked out enough offense to down the Orange both times. And the 2019 version of the Big Red has been more potent and multifaceted.Two of Teat’s teammates, John Piatelli and Clarke Petterson, are top-10 in the country in goals per game — they score nearly seven a game combined. Cornell is No. 2 in all of college lacrosse with 25 points per game. But all season, Mellen’s shutout, silenced and stifled opponent’s top options. Army’s Brendan Nichtern, Duke’s Joe Robertson and Hobart’s Chris Aslanian were befuddled by Mellen. So, when Teat and Mellen meet on Tuesday, their matchup might decide more than Mellen’s temperament after the game.“He’s from Canada, he knows those box rules,” Mellen said. “And no matter how tight you’re on him, he’s still good enough to make something happen. “So, you can definitely expect a good matchup.” Comments Published on April 8, 2019 at 12:31 am Contact Andrew: aegraham@syr.edu | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Seat cushions ‘likely’ from Emiliano Sala’s missing plane recovered

first_imgSeat cushions thought to be from the airplane that went missing with Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala aboard have been found on a beach in northern France, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch has confirmed Wednesday.Guernsey Police last Thursday ceased looking for Sala, who was aboard a Piper Malibu aircraft with pilot David Ibbotson when the plane went missing Jan. 21 over the English Channel en route to Cardiff from Nantes. Sala completed a transfer to Cardiff of the EPL the weekend before and had been back in France bidding farewell to his colleagues at Nantes.Initial search-and-rescue efforts had spanned three days without finding any trace of the plane, before authorities halted their efforts.But, a week on from the incident, the AAIB was alerted to two seat cushions found on a beach near the town of Surtainville, and they are now preparing to comb an area of the seabed in an attempt to find wreckage.#CityAsOne pic.twitter.com/z3m7AV0mwu— Cardiff City FC (@CardiffCityFC) January 29, 2019″On the morning of Monday 28 January, we were advised by the Bureau d’Enquetes and d’Analyses (BEA), the French safety investigation authority, that part of a seat cushion had been found on a beach near Surtainville on the Cotentin Peninsula,” the AAIB announced in a statement Wednesday.”A second cushion was found in the same area later that day. From a preliminary examination we have concluded that it is likely that the cushions are from the missing aircraft.”From the moment we were notified of the missing aircraft, we have been looking at the feasibility of conducting an underwater seabed search for aircraft wreckage. Based on a detailed assessment of the flight path and last known radar position, we have now identified a priority search area of approximately four square nautical miles.”Through the Ministry of Defense’s Salvage and Marine Operations (SALMO) Project Team, we have commissioned a specialist survey vessel to carry out an underwater survey of the seabed to try to locate and identify possible aircraft wreckage. “Due to the weather and sea conditions, we currently expect our underwater seabed search to start at the end of this weekend and to take up to three days. Side-scan sonar equipment will be used to try to locate the wreckage on the seabed. If the wreckage is found, a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) will be used to visually examine the wreckage.”We are aware that a privately operated search is also being conducted in the area, and we are liaising closely with those involved to maximize the chance of locating any wreckage and ensure a safe search operation.”Our remit is to undertake safety investigations to establish the cause of accidents. We do not apportion blame or liability.”last_img read more
