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: [email protected] | @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

Laurie Foster | Saint Stephen? … MVP boss showing softer side

first_img Judging from all this, as was the case in previous situations, with Asafa Powell, Sherone Simpson, Melaine Walker and so many high profilers, the MVP door is not a revolving one. Once you leave, you stay out – no room for reconsideration or revisit by either party – rough but real. Returning to Jamaica seems to have brought out a change of direction. The hitherto perceived ‘my way or the highway’ super coach is now singing from a different hymn sheet. Regional track and field exclusive website, Trackalerts.com carried a story: ‘Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce could return to MVP’. The thought was fuelled by a Francis comment that did not typify the no-nonsense, no retreat, no return, academically gifted former accountant. “From what I’m hearing, it looks as if things are not as clear-cut as they were before. It seemed clear-cut back in Rio, but it doesn’t seem as clear-cut now,” Francis continued, “we will see what happens.” That final offering at the Airport welcome ceremony, has sparked the sentiment that Francis is on a different path. Could it be one that accommodates a view leading to dialogue? Jamaica, nor for that matter, the world is not awash with coaches of the calibre of a Stephen Francis. He has been vilified in the past for an attitude that can compromise the fortunes of our most talented. A case in point was that anti-camp face off at the 2009 Berlin World Champs that led to a frenzied pull-out of some eventual medalists. It was only astute and assiduous action by some top administrators that saved that day and the nation’s global image. Every Third World nation deserves to have its best athletes and its best coaches working in tandem to achieve best results. If what we are seeing is real, Foster’s Fairplay welcomes the new and refreshed Stephen Francis. • For feedback: Email [email protected] NO REVOLVING DOOR Is the sport of track and field actually seeing a new Stephen Francis? Talk is that in recent times, most specifically, after the Rio Olympics, the MVP Track Club’s head coach is displaying a softer side to his personality, previously hidden from public view. Foster’s Fairplay has received a few calls on the matter and is compelled to give an ear to what seems to be real chat. The traditionally highly combative Francis is known for his belligerent stance, taking on the sport’s elite thinkers, adamant to illustrate that he should be included in that lot. His open defiance of, aligned with ranting and raving against, certain edicts from top administrators, has become a feature of the highly spirited interaction with the authorities, while on the cusp of major championships. Usually, the point of discussion rests with compulsory pre-competition camps, which the University of Michigan MBA graduate sees as anathema in respect of the needs of his athletes. Immediately after the crowning of MVP’s new sprinting sensation, Elaine Thompson, as the latest Olympic 100m queen, the dethroned Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, amidst all her grace, elegance and charm, dropped a bombshell. She responded to journalists’ queries in a manner that suggested that all did not go well in her preparation for a momentous event. Her chance of becoming the first ever triple-gold medalist in the short sprint, had been shattered. A series of interviews, revealed that coach Francis was being asked to shoulder the blame for a performance that denied Fraser-Pryce a special place in history. Then came what was described as the “Shelly Shocker” with this newspaper’s special projects editor, AndrÈ Lowe, reporting from Rio that “MVP coach Stephen Francis has confirmed that Olympic 100m bronze medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has lost confidence in the programme and is moving on.” Francis responded: “I am in agreement with her that she should try something different.” This was after another alleged statement suggesting that he held up his hand when the question of Shelly-Ann’s not making the historic cut a few weeks earlier was raised. There was an admission of guilt. “Coaches of the disappointed people, like myself have to take the blame, and I accept full blame for Shelly-Ann not performing the way she expected to.”last_img read more

THE X FACTOR JUDGE – AND HER LINK TO MARY FROM DUNGLOE!

first_imgTHE new X Factor judge taking the place of Cheryl Cole has a bizarre link to Donegal…Rapper Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed her cousins were in the group which wrote the famous song ‘Mary from Dungloe’!They were sons of Tommy Byrne, who won the Feis Ceoil three times in a row and later went on to sing with Val Doonican and the Four Ramblers. By the 1960s, Tommy Byrne’s sons Brian and Mick had formed a musical group called the Spicelanders, which played different folk clubs and participated in various ballad contests around Ireland.Soon, the Byrne brothers joined forces with multi-instrumentalist Donal Lunny and merged their two groups – Lunny’s had been called The Emmet Folk – to create Emmet Spiceland.The band topped the Irish charts with hits like Báidín Fheidhlimi, Down By The Sally Gardens and, most famously, Mary From Dungloe – the song credited with sparking the creation of the Mary from Dungloe International Festival.The festival continues to this day and the 2011 programme takes place next month in Donegal, with organisers writing on the festival site that the April 1968 Emmet Spiceland release of the traditional ballad ‘could well be described as the foundation stone on which the “Mary from Dungloe” Festival was about to be built. The rapper’s mum is from Dublin and she admitted: “I’ve still got loads of family there. Most of them are over 60, so I don’t expect them to come to the shows when we play in Ireland.“Mum used to take me to Ireland on holidays when I was younger. I remember visiting Cork. She’s still very close to her roots.”THE X FACTOR JUDGE – AND HER LINK TO MARY FROM DUNGLOE! was last modified: June 6th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dungloeMary From Dungloeshowbiztulisax factorlast_img read more
