Yelin begins 2nd season with grueling test at Penn State Invitational

first_imgA year ago, Leonid Yelin arrived at Syracuse hoping to turn the program around. Yelin spent 15 seasons coaching Louisville before joining the Orange, bringing the Cardinals to the NCAA tournament in all but one season.On Friday, he will open his second season at SU with a matchup against his former team at the Penn State Invitational at 4:30 p.m. in University Park, Pa.The Cardinals, the No. 19 team in the nation, provide the first of two tough tests for SU this weekend. Syracuse will face No. 2 Penn State at 11 a.m. on Saturday.Yelin realizes this may not be the ideal way to coach the players, but he doesn’t have any other choice due to such a tough schedule.“I probably wouldn’t do this,” Yelin said. “It’s like teaching (swimming) out on the lake, you’re just sort of throwing them in there.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd the schedule won’t get any easier. Syracuse will play six other teams that qualified for the NCAA Tournament last season.With the start of Yelin’s second season at Syracuse on the horizon, there is plenty of room for improvement after a 12-18 season. One major component is improving on the road, where the Orange went just 3-9.One issue could be the lack of experience on the team. With such a young team, Yelin said that this season “will have its ups and its downs.”Another major point of improvement should be conference play. Friday will also mark the beginning of the Orange’s tenure in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but regardless of which conference Syracuse is in, the Orange will need to improve its 4-11 conference record.One key to improvement will be setter Erica Handley. The freshman from Lakeville, Minn., is being asked to be the primary setter for the squad. She graduated high school early so she has been on campus since January this year, giving her plenty of time to practice and bond with the team.“There are going to be some nerves,” Handley said. “I just know if I go out there and play as hard as I can and just do what I’ve been working on, everything should come together.” Comments Published on August 28, 2013 at 10:47 pm Contact Eric: esriter@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse football defensive linemen not locked into 1 spot in Tampa 2

first_imgSyracuse’s defensive line is switching it up a bit more this year. Rather than going with linemen on the right and left side of the line, the D-Line will be switching based on the strong side and weak side of the offense, multiple players said.The strong side of a formation is typically the side with more players on the line.“We started working with both sides, at least the guys in the spring,” senior defensive end Hernz Laguerre said. “… We have a general feel for both positions.”Laguerre said ends whose strength is power are more likely to be put on the strong side and speed ends are more likely to work on the weak side. He added that the strategy could switch based on gameplans, however.Chris Slayton, who had been listed on the post-spring depth chart as a No. 1 defensive tackle, has been practicing at end recently. Because of his experience inside, Slayton could fit as a strong side end for SU. In his first season with playing time, Slayton made 22 tackles, six of them for a loss, and forced one fumble.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We have certain ends that go somewhere so it’ll just be like depending on what the call is and what the strength is, we’ll just switch,” Steven Clark said. “Nose will go one way, tackle will go the other way, we’ll both switch. So it’s just basic.”For more coverage, visit our training camp blog with daily updates from training campWith SU’s relative lack of game experience at end, moving Slayton to end could allow the Orange to rotate its mostly smaller and speed-based ends on the opposite side of the line. Slayton said he can bring strength to the end position, but isn’t used to the space allotted on the outside.“I’m working a little bit of both,” Slayton said of the defensive tackle and end positions. “I’m trying to master both.”That seemingly would allow Clark and Kayton Samuels to also play next to each other on the interior of the line. Last season, Clark played in all 12 games, tallying 21 tackles and 1.5 tackles for a loss. Samuels piled up 15 total tackles and made 2.5 tackles for a loss.Asst.

Dungey’s departure, DeVito’s disappointment and more from Syracuse’s loss to Notre Dame

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ NEW YORK — No. 3 Notre Dame (11-0) blew out No. 12 Syracuse (8-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast), 36-3, on Saturday in Yankee Stadium. In front of an Irish-friendly crowd, Eric Dungey and Tommy DeVito together were 15-for-35 passing for 115 yards and threw a combined three interceptions. SU’s defense responded valiantly, holding the Irish to field goals in several short field situations, but with the offense unable to produce at all, the Orange got embarrassed and took a big hit to any hope of a New Year’s Six bowl game.Below are three takeaways from the drubbing.Dinged up Dungey and dreadful DeVitoLate in the first quarter, between two plays, Dungey collapsed to the field, clutching at his lower back with his right hand. It was later announced that Dungey was being evaluated for an upper-body injury and was questionable to return. He didn’t.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn Dungey’s stead, DeVito took the reins of the offense and led it nowhere. The redshirt freshman finished 14-for-31 for 105 yards and two interceptions. (Dungey threw one on the first play of SU’s second offensive series.)DeVito struggled with accuracy, pushing deep balls too close to the sideline and underthrowing a ball to Taj Harris that was intercepted. Even when he did hit his receivers, bad things happened. Harris later bobbled a reception over the middle that was intercepted. Early in the fourth quarter, DeVito had Nykeim Johnson come open across the middle and delivered a strike to his hands. Johnson dropped it.DeVito settled a little bit in the fourth quarter as Notre Dame’s pass rush relented slightly because it was already 29-0.Ian Book(ed) itFrom the first drive to the end of his day with 8:20 remaining in the fourth quarter when Brandon Wimbush came on in relief, Ian Book did whatever he wanted to do with the football. He surgically passed his way to a 23-for-37 day with 292 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The pick came on a 4th and goal play where Book tripped and flipped the ball blindly into the end zone, where Andre Cisco took it out of the air.Book consistently put passes in spots only his receivers could get to, and they did. On his final touchdown pass, Book perfectly led wideout Chase Claypool into the end zone on a slant. And when he didn’t immediately have an open man or the SU pass rush got home, Book extended plays with his legs long enough for a man to come open downfield.In his first game back from an injury, Book shredded SU’s secondary. Yankee Stadium part two?With the loss, any hopes Syracuse had of making a New Year’s Six bowl took a major hit. Though it is still possible for SU to end up playing on New Year’s Day, it’s at best very unlikely. A win over the undefeated and playoff-contending Irish would have catapulted SU into the Top 10 of the rankings and set up a potential 10-win season. Instead, the Orange endured its most thorough beat down since losing 54-0 at Clemson in 2016. With a win at Boston College next Saturday, Syracuse still has a chance to boost itself to the Camping World Bowl — which had a representative at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. The most likely outcome, it would seem, is that Syracuse plays in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 27 right back in Yankee Stadium.

UKGC launches public consultation on slot design

first_img EPIC and Whysup ‘continue to make real change’ with partnership renewal August 19, 2020 StumbleUpon Share The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has launched a public consultation into online slot design, aiming to gain public views on greater protection for vulnerable players.The UKGC has outlined a series of proposals, including new controls aimed at reducing the potential for consumers to be harmed by their gambling on the most intensive products, online slots, and removing the ability of operators to reverse customer withdrawal requests.In a statement the UKGC explained: “ We know that the success of many technology companies, digital content creators and gaming machine games designers depends on their ability to establish and maintain the engagement of their consumers on their web, mobile apps and – in premises – gaming machines.“We also know that speed of play, frequency of betting opportunities, as well as other factors on offer to players can increase addiction and risk of harm. The proposed changes outlined within this document will help to mitigate these risks for slots players.“Our interest in online slots is because it is the largest online gambling product by gross gambling yield – played by relatively few but with a high average spend. Structurally it has a number of features which can combine to significantly increase intensity of play.“This means it poses a relatively high risk, reflected in its associated problem and moderate-risk gambling rates.”Moreover, the UKGC emphasised the proposals are ‘just the first step’ in their efforts to keep players safe.The statement continued: “Slots is an area which has seen technological innovation in terms of product design and we expect operators to continually show an equal, and indeed greater, commitment to innovate in terms of consumer protection.“Regulatory intervention needs to keep pace with this and the proposals in this consultation form part of a comprehensive package of work we are taking forward to make online gambling safer.” Related Articles ‘Pent-up demand’ for live sports drives gambling pick-up in June August 17, 2020 Submit Share UKGC lifts Matchbook suspension August 12, 2020last_img read more
