The regular season will kick-off at Northern Kentucky on Friday, Aug. 29, followed by visit from Dayes’ alma mater, Wright State, in the home opener on Monday, Sept. 1. That will be followed by four-straight road matches, first with a pair in Omaha, Nebraska. The Bearcats visit Nebraska Omaha on Friday, Sept. 5, before staying in town to take on 2013 NCAA Tournament participant Creighton on Sunday, Sept. 7. The road swing concludes with a visit to crosstown-rival Xavier on Saturday, Sept. 13, and a trip to IPFW on Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Happ, a preseason all-conference selection and preseason All-American, finished the season with a .322 batting average while leading the team with both a .497 slugging percentage and a .443 on-base percentage. He totaled 55 hits, 32 runs and 27 RBIs and had a team-high 13 doubles, five homeruns, 29 walks and 19 stolen bases. The sophomore ranked in the top-10 of the American in slugging percentage (fifth), on-base percentage (sixth), doubles (eighth), home runs (sixth), walks (sixth) and stolen bases (fifth).
Qualifying for the Preliminary Championships is based on the descending-order list for the season, segregated by east and west sites, and prepared solely from the mandatory submission of meet results during the season and adhering to the qualifying regulations. For each individual event contested at each of the Preliminary Championships sites, the top 48 declared student-athletes are accepted into the competition. For each relay event contested at each of the Preliminary Championships sites, the top 24 declared relay teams are accepted into the competition.
So far I have liked what I have seen of Hughes’s defense with UConn, at least in its approach if not the execution. Part of that is down to talent. In a year when multi year stalwarts and starters at every level of the defense moved on to the next level the 2013 Huskies were short on proven players on defense. Predictably they took a major step back from a great 2012 group. I am not inclined to place the blame for that on Hughes, at least not all of it. After all it doesn’t really matter what you call if the players manage to continually blow assignments and be out of position.
Last month, 10 years and change and a few jobs removed, Minter was invited back to the outing he began. Having covered every one of his games on the radio (which equates to 117 post-game interviews that many recall to this day) it was good to see the old head coach mingling with numerous players from the past and talking about the origins of the golf gathering/pig roast.
Boise State sued the American in April 2013, claiming damages. The school says it is owed damages through June 30, 2016, according to court documents. The American filed a countersuit in May 2013, claiming Boise State owed $5 million in exit fees as described in the “membership expansion agreement” signed by the two parties.
Cincinnati. UCF coach George O’Leary is the league’s best coach, but after a spectacular one-loss season, O’Leary loses too much talent for UCF to repeat as conference champs. Enter Tommy Tuberville’s Bearcats, who return gifted talents at both wide receiver (Shaq Washington, Chris Moore, Mekale McKay) and running back (Hosey Williams). LB Nick Temple and DL Silverberry Mouhon, who combined for 26 TFLs a year ago, return to lead the defensive front seven.
Nederlander’s Harris has made no secret he wants the Bearcats to move in. Some Downtown leaders and big donors continue to hope that UC would do that, sparking a major renovation. But that possibility is fading. UC is concentrating now on a plan to renovate the on-campus Fifth Third Arena, taking out as many as 3,000 seats, improving sight lines and making all seats permanent. Campus architects said they hoped to create such a plan by the end of May.
Bernard’s experience lining up in the slot or out wide is limited. He rarely played receiver at North Carolina. Last year in the regular season, Bernard lined up in the slot 14 times and 28 times on the edge as a wide receiver, according to Pro Football Focus.
A report issued by Dayton’s city commissioners this month concluded that the Flyers garnered the equivalent of $36.7 million for Dayton during the play of their four games, $34.5 million from replays and television clips, and $726,321 in value from social media posts. The team’s Twitter handle, @daytonflyers, received more than 90 million impressions from the start of the tournament on March 18 to when the team was knocked out by overall top seed Florida on March 29.
