Stock up/stock down: A look back at Syracuse football’s loss to Notre Dame

first_img Published on October 2, 2016 at 3:35 pm Contact Jon: jrmettus@syr.edu | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+ Eric Dungey, sophomore quarterbackSU’s offense was dwarfed by Notre Dame’s big plays, but Eric Dungey turned in another solid game. He threw the ball 51 times for 363 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He was the team’s leading rusher, ran for three scores and was able to draw the Fighting Irish offside at least four times.His throws weren’t the sharpest again, but Dungey delivered in the red zone. SU abandoned the run game, putting the whole offense on Dungey’s shoulders, and he led it to 33 points. The offense did struggle after the opening two touchdowns again, but Dungey even slid twice on runs, which is an improvement for him.Clare Ramirez | Presentation DirectorStock DownSyracuse’s big-play defenseThe Tampa 2 is a scheme designed to bend, not break. Give up yards in small doses, not huge chunks. But again, the Orange was a major victim of big plays. Notre Dame scored four offensive touchdowns of more than 50 yards, including a 79-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage.Even when it looked like SU had Fighting Irish running back Dexter Williams caught behind the line of scrimmage for a loss, Williams cut back left against the defense that over-pursued and trotted into the end zone after 59 yards with no one around him. Kizer’s 471 passing yards are the most in a win in Fighting Irish history, which dates to 1887.Jessica Sheldon | Photo EditorKickersPlace kicker Cole Murphy entered the Notre Dame game coming off a week where he went 1-for-3 on field goals and booted two kickoffs out of bounds. It didn’t get much better for him on Saturday. Murphy had his first PAT blocked and returned for a score — not necessarily his fault — and then missed on a 40-yard field goal before halftime that would have brought the Orange within three points.Punter Sterling Hofrichter had a rough day, too. He shanked one rugby-style punt from Syracuse’s 43 that went out of bounds after only 13 yards. He seems to have mishit several punts this season, but he’s tied for being the 10th-most used punter in the country, averaging 6.4 per game. His yards per punt average is 48th in the nation.Hofrichter also mishandled a PAT snap as the holder, costing SU a point.Jessica Sheldon | Photo EditorCordell Hudson, redshirt sophomore cornerbackCordell Hudson did prevent himself from being hurdled again and made a few nice stops, but he was also apart of three of Notre Dame’s four offensive touchdowns that went for more than 50 yards.On the very first play of the game, Hudson squared up Equanimeous St. Brown running laterally across the field toward him at about the Notre Dame 45. St. Brown cut up the field and Hudson just fell to the ground after only getting a hand on him.On Notre Dame’s next offensive possession, Hudson covered St. Brown one-on-one. Hudson slowed up while St. Brown accelerated as the ball was thrown and St. Brown caught it a step ahead of Hudson, who face-planted into the ground again as St. Brown went in for a score.Hudson was the man with backside contain on Dexter Williams’ 59-yard cutback touchdown run, but Hudson again was caught off guard with a cut up field and missed the tackle, only grazing Williams with his left hand.Jessica Sheldon | Photo Editor Commentscenter_img The opening five minutes of Syracuse against Notre Dame saw 36 point scored, a blocked extra point returned for two points and a kickoff return for a touchdown. By halftime, Syracuse was within six points. Take away the blocked PAT and give the Orange the field goal missed at the buzzer and it would have been tied. But the Fighting Irish opened the half with 17 unanswered points and stomped on SU, 50-33, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.Here’s a look at where some players and units stood out.Stock upBrisly Estime, senior wide receiverBrisly Estime was electric in the punt return game, catching three kicks and taking them a total of 128 yards. His best return of the day came with less than a minute left in the first half. Several Notre Dame players were within a few yards of Estime as he caught the ball at his own 12, but they stopped, apparently thinking he called for a fair catch. So Estime bolted forward, shed about three tackles, and was finally brought down at Notre Dame’s 14. The Orange scored a touchdown right before the half as a result of his return.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter the first week of the season, head coach Dino Babers took Estime off punt returns to save his energy for offense. But his replacement, freshman receiver Sean Riley, looked a bit shaky. Estime took the last punt in the fourth quarter against UConn last week and started taking punts in the second quarter this week. He already has the seventh-most yards in FBS despite being tied for 48th in number of punt returns, with seven. His 21.9 yards per return in second best.Jessica Sheldon | Photo EditorZaire Franklin, junior linebackerSyracuse’s defense did not look good against Notre Dame, but one player that shined in moments was Zaire Franklin. The middle linebacker came up with three of the defense’s biggest plays on the day. Franklin finished with nine tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, a sack and an interception.He read a jet sweep play at the goal line and took down running back Josh Adams with a solo tackle at Syracuse’s 1-yard line. When Notre Dame had the ball on third down at SU’s 35 with about a minute left in the first half, Franklin darted in from pass coverage and took down a scrambling DeShone Kizer for an 11-yard sack, knocking UND out of field goal range. On Notre Dame’s next offensive play, Franklin jumped in front of a crossing route and returned the interception to UND’s 34 with 16 seconds left in the first.MORE COVERAGE:What we learned from Syracuse’s loss to Notre DameSyracuse fizzles once again after hot startBig plays torch the Orange’s defenselast_img read more

You Got NoSQL in MySQL: Memcached Plugin in MySQL Technology Preview

first_imgTags:#Big Data#hack#news#Tools Oracle released a technology preview this week a new version of MySQL that adds support for a Memcached plugin daemon for accessing InnoDB, MySQL’s default storage engine. It’s available from MySQL Labs. The plugin daemon is only available for Linux at this time.Memcached stores key-value queries in memory to achieve NoSQL performance. Memcached has always worked with MySQL, but has run independently. This plugin should speed up the process considerably by allowing Memcached to access the InnoDB API directly.Here are the features, according to the InnoDB blog: Related Posts klint finley Why You Love Online Quizzes How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?

Dealing with Your Irrational Competitor

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now There is no way your irrational competitor can quote those prices and be profitable enough to deliver the outcomes they’ve sold. You can’t do it, and the companies that have tried have struggled, or they have disappeared.The concessions your irrational competitor makes are unintelligible. They make no sense at all, and they are something your company would never agree to. The profit margins don’t exist to allow these concessions. Yet they regularly agree to them.The explanations your irrational competitor provides to explain how they can be better and cheaper usually amount to nothing more than “We’re just like them, only cheaper.”There is nothing you can do about your irrational competitor’s strategy, their tactics, or their promises. If the strategy is unsustainable, it will eventually prove itself to be just that. If the tactics reduce their margins and make it difficult for them to execute and produce the promised outcomes their clients expect, at some point, that is what will happen. If their promises turn out to be lies, they will be exposed. Eventually.You can do nothing about their strategy or tactics. There is even less that you can do about the promises they make to your prospective clients—and your actual clients, as they try to displace you. Even collecting the stories of the clients that have come back to you aren’t always enough to keep you from losing a prospect or having a client defect.Your irrational competitor is irrational. These behaviors are what make them irrational. It’s how they believe they will win. They will operate this way until the market punishes them. And, over time, the market punishes those who don’t run a profitable business.Until such a time, your job is to identify the prospective clients who are willing to pay more for the greater value you create. Your strategy is to identify those clients who are let down by the concessions your irrational competitor makes, when their execution fails because they made the concession necessary to buy business. Your strategy must be to create greater value for your prospective and existing clients, focusing on winning those who are unwilling to make concessions, and those who understand the difference between price and cost.You will lose to irrational clients because there is nothing they won’t do to win. The hedge you make is to build your pipeline, and learn to create greater value, value worth paying more for.last_img read more

Haryana govt. puts absentee women councillors on notice

first_imgHaryana Urban Local Bodies Minister Kavita Jain said on Monday that the State government has decided to remove women councillors if they personally remain absent for more than three consecutive meetings of the municipalities.“The decision has been taken to prevent the practice of proxy attendance by relatives of women councillors in the meetings of municipalities. It has been noticed that the practice has been increasing,” she said.Ms. Jain said the State government was giving impetus to ensure increased participation of women in politics and in decision-making so as to empower them.“At present, 42% representation in municipalities is that of women. If instead of raising their voices, they allow their relatives to do so, their political abilities would not develop and grow. Hence, the spirit of the initiative taken by the government to politically empower them would be completely lost,” she said.She said directions pertaining to the order have been issued to all the commissioners of municipal corporations, executive officers of municipal councils and secretaries of municipal committees.last_img read more

Settlement reached in Giants Manning memorabilia fraud case

first_imgHACKENSACK, N.J. – Three sports memorabilia collectors who accused New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning of providing bogus “game-worn” equipment that was sold to unsuspecting fans settled their lawsuit against the Super Bowl-winning quarterback on Monday, days before the case was scheduled to go to trial.A spokesman for the defendants, a group that included Manning, the Giants, two equipment managers and Steiner Sports, the company with whom Manning is under contract to provide game-worn jerseys and helmets for sale, said Monday night a settlement had been reached to resolve the claims. Details were not given.Plaintiffs Eric Inselberg, Michael Jakab and Sean Godown had sought triple the amount of their alleged losses — which totalled less than $20,000 combined — for buying two helmets billed as worn by Manning. They also had sought punitive damages, and claimed in court filings they would produce evidence that would “show that Manning engaged in a pattern of knowingly providing items to Steiner Sports that he misrepresented as having been game-used when he knew they were not.”Manning and the Giants had denied the allegations and characterized the suit as “inflammatory and baseless” in court filings.Jury selection was to have begun this week, but a death in the family of one of the attorneys had pushed that back to next Monday.An attorney for the plaintiffs confirmed the settlement Monday night.Inselberg filed the lawsuit in 2014. The suit claimed two helmets purchased by Inselberg and the two other plaintiffs — including one purportedly used by Manning during the Giants’ 2007-2008 Super Bowl season — were bogus. Inselberg alleged photographic experts using a technique called “photomatching” could not find evidence that the helmets were ever used in games.The Giants and Manning contend photomatching is unreliable because it does not take into account that helmets are routinely reconditioned during or after a season, the evidence of which might be found on the inside of the helmet and not the outside.The stakes were raised in the lawsuit in April 2017 when Inselberg’s attorneys filed court documents that contained emails between Manning and equipment manager Joseph Skiba, who also was a defendant in the lawsuit. In one email, Manning asks Skiba to get “2 helmets that can pass as game used.”The email does not refer to the two helmets at issue in the lawsuit, but Inselberg alleged it indicates a pattern of fraud.When the emails went public last year, Manning angrily denied any wrongdoing. In a court filing this month, Manning’s attorney wrote that the email was intended to ask Skiba for two game-used helmets that would “satisfy the requirement of being game-used.”“Manning never instructed Joe Skiba to create any fraudulent memorabilia,” attorney Robert Lawrence wrote. “Rather, Manning believed that if he asked Joe Skiba for his helmets, he received his game-used helmets and that the helmets he received from Skiba were his game-used helmets.”In the same court filing, Manning’s lawyer accused Inselberg of being “engaged in a decades-long memorabilia scheme” in which he obtained, without permission, game-used Giants equipment, including Manning’s, from Skiba and Skiba’s brother, Ed, as well as a local dry cleaner.last_img read more
