It may be too early to say that Kim Mulkey’s efforts to revive a once-proud LSU women’s basketball program are well ahead of schedule, but it’s clear the Tigers have taken a giant leap forward this week. last.

LSU’s 69-60 victory on Thursday came against Iowa State, a perennial NCAA tournament team and a regular resident of the top tier of the Top 25, no one brawls in the 20’s. The game was sometimes tight, but LSU was leading from half-time in the second quarter and the win can be called decisive.

With 11 days off due to final exams, Mulkey can continue to tinker with her fledgling creation and come out of her break like a juggernaut, maybe even classified. LSU won six places too early RealtimeRPI.com ranking at No. 6. Better yet, Iowa State moved up two spots to No. 20 with the loss.

LSU returns to action against Texas Southern on Dec. 12 in the PMAC. At 6-1, LSU is in good shape to surpass last year’s nine-game winning streak before the end of the month. Ten wins is one of Mulkey’s “celebration” milestones, along with beating a ranked team, going up and making the NCAA tournament.

Mulkey said she knew her team weren’t ready to face an opponent like the Florida Gulf Coast in their second game of the season, but the Tigers responded as they grew together thanks in training and in the first three weeks of the season.

“We did not allow this (loss) to defeat us,” Mulkey said. “We continued to grow and challenge them in practice. When you see some success, like going to Puerto Rico. … we played very badly at UL (November 18, a 70-41 win) but we kept hanging on, trying to grind. By watching self-confidence build and put these kids in a position where they understand you are good, we can win these games.

“We celebrated the victory over Mizzou State. We’re going to celebrate tonight, ”Mulkey said Thursday. “Why wouldn’t we do it?” And we will celebrate the victory of this 10th game, and when we have this winning season. All of those things add up and maybe we get the NCAA offer. This is how you build it.

Build a fan base

Another goal for Mulkey is to bring the crowds back to the level of the last four years of 2004-08, and she’s off to a good start. Season ticket sales are around 4,500, and Thursday’s crowd was estimated at 5,800 for an 8 p.m. whistleblower, competing in a televised New Orleans Saints game against the Dallas Cowboys.

It was probably the biggest crowd in the past five years, and players have taken notice.

“They impact us as we impact them,” said senior transfer Alexis Morris, who recorded a career-high 25 points. “We need our fans. Without our fans, I don’t know if we would have had the kick we had tonight. We appreciate them.

Khayla Pointer, who had 20 points, led the rest of her teammates into the student section to celebrate the victory.

“I see the boys going over there after their games and saying hello,” Pointer said. “Even seeing them lined up on the outside before the game was exciting. We feed off the fans. There’s a different energy inside PMAC, especially when we’re going to run.

Cherry OK

If you are a Tiger fan, you won’t want to miss this newsletter. Register today.

LSU was scared when fifth-year senior starting goalie Jailin Cherry’s left knee buckled as she drove for a breakaway layup in the second quarter. Mulkey said Cherry was fine and was allowed to return to the game, although she did not.

“It looked like this might be what we all fear,” Mulkey said. “I told him over there, ‘Whatever it is, it’s fixable. We will get your year back. We’ll do the waiver and everything. Turn around and let them examine you. “

To beat

Mulkey and Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly have a long history on the opposing sidelines and a strong friendship off the field. Fennelly, her son Billy and grandson Will are all die-hard St. Louis Cardinals baseball fans. Ahead of Thursday’s game, Mulkey presented senior Fennelly with a bat and ball for Will, signed by son Kramer Robertson, a Cardinals infielder and former LSU All-American.

The generosity ended there as the Tigers handed the Cyclones their first loss in eight games, improving Mulkey’s record against Fennelly to 31-6.

Flamboyant blazer

Fans and viewers on Thursday noticed Mulkey’s sequined blazer, adorned with large colorful butterflies. It hardly held up, she said, as she tore the back of the right shoulder with her fist excitedly during the game.

After the final horn sounded, she was sprayed with water during the victory celebration.

“They’re going to pay for this jacket,” Mulkey joked. “It’s not against NCAA rules. It is worth anything that gets wet.

Pointer wasn’t sure the party bath was a good idea for their first year coach.

“When they got the idea, I was like, ‘Are you sure you all want to do this? “”

Coach to coach

Mulkey also visited the pre-game with newly hired football coach Brian Kelly, who stayed an extra day after his introductory press conference after Mulkey extended an informal invitation on Tuesday. The two coaches exchanged a double high-five.

Move over the bananas of the savannah! The Louisville Jockeys are ready to wow their fans with contests, entertainment and their “Husky Jockey” charity race.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Louisville is about to have a new baseball team.

The Louisville Jockeys will be on the field next summer (May 2022) as part of the Ohio Valley League (OVL). OVL is a summer college league with teams from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee.

Chad Miller, the team’s co-founder, is thrilled the Jockeys win the Diamond here in Louisville because of the city’s rich baseball history.

“The most important thing is that we want to increase the value of baseball, endorse and encourage the game,” Miller said. “It really puts us in a good position. “

The Collegiate Summer League mixes elite talent with performance, much like wrestling. The games are of course all about talent, but players can also show their personality by entertaining the crowd. Sometimes it’s games and prizes, but the Jockeys are planning to do some charity games … for every night.

One of the star events of a Jockey game will be a “Husky Jockey” race. The charity of the evening will provide four “jockeys” over 215 pounds to do a stick horse race. They will let the crowd place bets on the four jockeys and then use the collections to benefit the charity.

They take the total pot, split it 50/50, spend 50% on the end-of-season final races, and then choose one of the bettors from the winning jockey’s pot in a raffle to get the remaining 50%.

The winning jockey from each race will move on to an end-of-season opportunity, where pots from each match will create a grand prize donation. Miller thinks it will be close to $ 200,000.

“I think we’ve got a really fun mascot,” Miller said of why Louisville will love this team. “We have a playful jockey who represents health, fitness and fun. “

Miller said the Jockeys are still in the process of making a deal for where they will play in town. He said the roster can hold up to 35 players and currently 27 players are signed up. Of these 27, 22 players are local.

Miller also said he would offer all Little League players in town season tickets to the games.

The Louisville Jockeys’ first game is scheduled for May 30, 2022.

San Francisco Giants president is an MLB team owner’s dream https://nyrenegades.com/san-francisco-giants-president-is-an-mlb-team-owners-dream/ Thu, 02 Dec 2021 18:00:11 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/san-francisco-giants-president-is-an-mlb-team-owners-dream/ San Francisco Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi speaks in end-of-season news … [+] conference in San Francisco, Monday, October 18, 2021 (AP Photo / Jeff Chiu) ASSOCIATED PRESS Now that Major League Baseball is on lockdown, the San Francisco Giants have once again had a relatively weak offseason so far. Fans who expected […]]]>

Now that Major League Baseball is on lockdown, the San Francisco Giants have once again had a relatively weak offseason so far. Fans who expected the Giants front office to create a free agency sensation after the teams’ breakout campaign in 2021 are starting to voice their grievances against team president Farhan Zaidi on social media. However, Farhan Zaidi does exactly what he has always done throughout his career as a front office executive; it makes money for the owners.

While Zaidi’s approach to free agent spending can be maddening for fans aspiring to the championship, Zaidi has done an exceptional job of controlling costs while simultaneously building a competitive squad. Not to mention, the Giants were set to make the move to the NLCS with a motley crew of veterans and junkies.

In fact, Farhan Zaidi is perhaps the most valuable front office executive in Major League Baseball right now. He’s an “owner president”, so to speak.

Like most teams, the San Francisco Giants are no longer owned by a single owner, but a group of owners led by majority owner Charles Johnson. As franchise valuations began to skyrocket and profit margins began to explode in Major League Baseball, ownership groups became the norm as very few individuals can afford to buy a team by. themselves.

So, ownership groups have become the norm and despite industry-wide losses from the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the estimated value of the San Francisco Giants franchise has increased in 2021. .

The San Francisco Giants are not only one of the most valuable franchises in the major leagues, but they are also one of the major sources of income for the major leagues. It’s safe to say that the ROI of the San Francisco Giants’ ownership group has to be a pretty worthy investment.

Pair that with the San Francisco Giants ‘surprising achievement in 2021 and the league’s 9th payroll (up from 5th in 2019 when Zaidi took office as chairman), the Giants’ ownership group must be more than happy with the job. accomplished by Farhan Zaidi. as president of baseball operations.

The Los Angeles Dodgers owner group would likely agree, too. However, the current incarnation of the Dodgers might wish they still had Farhan Zaidi as they have failed to win a championship in the last two non-COVID seasons since Zaidi left, while also breaking the luxury tax threshold. in pursuit of the championships.

It also created a list crunch in Los Angeles as they are on the verge of seeing Clayton Kershaw leave the franchise and they also just lost Corey Seager to free agency. A high price to pay for a short season championship.

While the luxury tax threshold has become a de facto salary cap for most teams, Farhan Zaidi has been extremely successful in keeping the Giants’ payroll at a safe distance from that cap. Additionally, cutting player costs further helps Zaidi gain the likes of the Giants’ ownership group.

Even more surprising though, was the Giants’ ability to make the most of higher-priced veterans like Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford, while getting added value from players like Darrin Ruf, LaMonte Wade Jr. and Logan Webb.

Sadly, Zaidi now finds himself between a rock and a hard place between continuing to appease ownership, while simultaneously trying to build a roster that will make the Giants an exciting commodity on the pitch as well.

One factor that seems to be getting lost in the free agent frenzy is that home attendance has been declining steadily since 2015, and the Giants’ 2021 post-pandemic numbers could have been much worse had they not been competitive. However, they were competitive, but the fans once again have high expectations.

In some ways, Farhan Zaidi is a miracle worker. By making better investments in the team’s infrastructure by spending on coaches and analysts, the Giants were able to achieve a high level of return on the majority of their investments in 2021. As the big names in free agents came along from the board – those that a casual observer may think is a perfect fit – fans moaned over Zaidi’s reluctance to spend more on players he might be able to create. facsimiles for low risk commitments.

The fact remains; a facsimile of a great player is not the same as having a great player. This is what ultimately led to the demise of the Giants in the 2021 NLDS. Having players statistically similar to Max Scherzer or Mookie Betts is not the same as having Max Scherzer or Mookie Betts.

If the Giants are serious about winning, they will have to spend. Sadly, Farhan Zaidi’s job is to make sure the Giants win enough to appease the fan base, while continuing to make the team as profitable as possible for the owners.

Despite being drafted in the 42nd round of the 2004 MLB Draft, Blanks managed to rise through the ranks and become the Padres’ top prospect. However, once he reached the majors he was unable to maintain the same success he had in the minors. He was called up in 2009 and beat .287 in his rookie season, but injuries ended his season earlier and has seemed to be a theme for Blanks throughout his career. In May 2014, Blanks was traded to Oakland Athletics. He made a few appearances for the Texas Rangers in 2015, but couldn’t stay on the big-league roster. In 2017, Blanks retired.

Gary Sanchez is still a Yankee.

The Yankees will offer the receiver a contract, a source confirmed on Tuesday, keeping Sanchez in the Bronx, at least for now.

Sanchez’s future with the Yankees was uncertain for a second straight offseason thanks to another below-par both at plate and defensively, but as GM Brian Cashman noted recently, the alternatives are thin in the capture market.

After earning $ 6.35 million in 2021, Sanchez is expected to get a raise of around $ 8 million. He turns 29 on Thursday and is expected to become a free agent after the coming season.

Given Sanchez’s struggles, the Yankees made inquiries about Pittsburgh’s Jacob Stallings before he was traded to Miami.

In the end, they decided to stick with Sanchez, a double All-Star at 26, but a player who has seen his production drop significantly over the past two seasons.

The Yankees will offer wide receiver Gary Sanchez a contract.

Sanchez impressed the Yankees – and since batting coach Marcus Thames – by volunteering to play winter ball in the Dominican Republic following his disastrous 2020 campaign, then showed flashes of his former offensive prowess last season.

Those bright spots have been largely overshadowed, however, by protracted meltdowns which, no matter what the Yankees have said publicly, were made worse by his inconsistency behind the plate.

Cashman praised Sanchez’s defense and effort this offseason, but even admitted he fought more defensively in the latter part of the season.

And once again, the Yankees went with Kyle Higashioka in a must-see wildcard game in Boston, with Gerrit Cole on the mound.

In the 2020 playoffs, Higashioka was also favored over Sanchez – and not just when Cole pitched.

During 2021, Sanchez’s strikeout rate declined from the previous season’s peak, as did his exit speed.

How did he get to this point?

Theories vary widely, with some scouts questioning Sanchez’s efforts, but those in the organization insist Sanchez worked hard. Other evaluators pointed out a lack of development, both offensively and defensively.

The Yankees saw Gleyber Torres take a similar path and are hoping for a different result now that they’ve brought him down to second after the shortstop.

As for the rest of the roster, Cashman has indicated that first base is an area of ​​need, in addition to shortstop and potentially central ground, and this is especially true with the loss of Chris Gittens, who was released Monday night and was at least one room deep in the place.

Gittens, 27, hit well in the minors but struggled during his brief stint with the Yankees in 2021, when he went 4 for 36 with a homer, seven walks and 13 strikeouts batting. Anthony Rizzo is a free agent after playing well in the Bronx after his trade with the Cubs and Freddie Freeman is still not signed after his World Series run in Atlanta.

With Javier Baez en route to Detroit, the Yankees have one less option to make a splash in the free agent shortstop market.

Only Carlos Correa and Trevor Story remain in the market, although the Tigers have been seen as a potential landing point for Correa and are now set with Baez.

The Yankees were among the quieter teams in the sport during this flurry of activity ahead of the impending lockout, with their only major league signing a one-year, $ 2 million contract to bring back southpaw Joely Rodriguez.

They have chosen to stay away from the rapidly changing starting pitching market, despite making Justin Verlander a $ 25 million one-year offer. He chose to return to Houston.

Recently, the Australian Perth Heat became the first professional sports team to fully embrace Bitcoin and its Lightning network.

Perth heat is the best performing team in Australian Baseball League (ABL), having won 15 Claxton Shields.

On November 16, the club announcement their “partnership with the main Bitcoin payment company OpenNode to accept Bitcoin payments and send Bitcoin payments powered by the Lightning Network ”, becoming“ the first professional sports club in the world to fully adopt Bitcoin and the Lightning Network for accepting payments and paying staff and players “.

According to the club’s press release, the partnership will allow them to pay players and staff in Bitcoin, accept BTC payments for “stadium sponsorships, merchandise and concessions” and hold BTC on its balance sheet.

In short, the Perth Heat has chosen to use Bitcoin as the standard for payments and payments.

Perth Heat Bitcoin Director Patrick O’Sullivan said this:

The Perth Heat are committed to operating under a Bitcoin standard, and in doing so, move the company’s cash flow from dollars to Bitcoin. The club has already established an initial position in BTC to help secure its digital property rights in the world’s most secure monetary network and will continue to reinvest available capital in Bitcoin.

We believe the world has begun to recognize the power of sound monetary principles and are determined to take the lead. It is not a one-time purchase to guard against future uncertainties or inflationary pressures. The Perth Heat embrace the reality that the future of corporate money and cash will live on the Bitcoin blockchain.




And Perth Heat CEO Steven Nelkovski added:

We firmly believe that the mindset that Bitcoin conveys to network participants will be felt by our players, coaches, staff and loyal fan base and we look forward to setting the bar for the value that a sports organization can bring to a community in the Age of Bitcoin. By embracing the underlying values ​​of the Bitcoin Protocol, we believe the organization can achieve new levels of success on and off the pitch and remind the world of the true value of sport.

We know the community views the Perth Heat as a model for success and we hope that our adoption of a Bitcoin standard will inspire others to embrace a monetary system that requires value creation to thrive. Players and organizational staff have fully embraced the opportunities that being paid in Bitcoin can offer.

Bitcoin-only payment processor OpenNode was launched on May 21, 2018. The official media blog post announcing the launch called OpenNode “A Lightning Network Compatible Bitcoin Payment Processor That Requires No Technical Knowledge From Businesses To Integrate”.

Through Harry mini

NORFOLK, Virginia – The Old Dominion football team made a remarkable return to the regular season on Saturday afternoon, beating Charlotte, 56-34, to win their fifth straight game and become eligible for the first time in five seasons.

The match pitted teams with 5-6 records in total, with the winner destined to become bowling eligible and the loser ending for the season. ODU (6-6, 5-3 Conference USA) has not gone to a bowl since beating Eastern Michigan in the 2016 Bahamas Bowl.

The game was a back-and-forth affair, in which ODU lost a 21-point lead. But every time the 49ers struck, the Monarchs fought back. And in the process, they probably punched their ticket to a bowl game.

ODU seems very likely but unsure of going to a bowling alley. Conference USA has seven guaranteed bowl offers, but because North Texas upset the previously undefeated UTSA, there are now eight Bowl-eligible Conference USA teams.

However, not all conferences are meant to fill all of their allotted bowling slots. Additionally, ODU’s CV will stack up against many other six-game winning teams. The Monarchs have not only had five straight wins, but they also have a strong fan base and a great story to tell.

ODU was 1-11 in 2019 and due to the pandemic was one of three FBS schools not to play in 2020. ODU was chosen to finish last in the league and ranked 129e out of 130 FBS teams by CBSSports.

The Head Coach Ricky rahne, the former Penn State offensive coordinator, and his team have been remarkably successful in motivating a 1-6 team to win their last five games.

Rahne said he was convinced his team would receive a bowl offer and that the Monarchs clearly deserved one.

“To be able to train these guys for a few more weeks would be a dream come true,” said Rahne. “I know it’s not guaranteed. There are all kinds of sponsors, politics, TV and things that I’m not aware of here.

“But if you’re a human being who loves college football and you walk into that locker room, there’s a zero percent chance you won’t send this team to a bowl game.

“And if someone decides not to send us to a bowl game, then they’ll probably take candy from the babies and kick the puppies. Because this team deserved it.”

The 56 points were the most points ODU scored in a Conference USA game since joining the league in 2014.

The match marked the 71st annual Oyster Bowl and the winner of the Melvin T. Blassingham MVP award was the wide receiver Ali Jennings III , which had a career day for the Monarchs. The Richmond native, who transferred to the West Virginia ODU, had nine passes for 252 yards and three touchdowns.

Blake watson rushed 18 times for 106 times and two touchdowns and became just the second ODU player to run over 1,000 yards.

linebacker Jordan Young had 11 tackles and completed one before tying the school’s record for career tackles, a record he will almost surely break in a bowl game.

Strategist Hayden wolff completed 17 of 26 passes for three touchdowns and 328 yards. And he agrees with Rahne that ODU won a bowl offer.

“To beat five FBS teams in a row is a tough thing to do,” he said. “Especially after starting 1-6.

“We’ve beaten various good teams. FAU, Middle Tennessee and Charlotte. These are teams that have played and competed at the highest level against Power 5 schools. To beat teams like this, we’re on a roll in this. moment.

“It’s tough to win five games in a row and we’re looking forward to the next one.”

Jennings wore the No.10 jersey in honor of her cousin, Isiah Paige, who was lost for the season last weekend in Middle Tennessee due to injury.

“Isiah is blood,” he said. “This is one of the reasons I decided to come here. I didn’t feel the same without having it there.

“I spoke to Deege (Dwight Galt IV), our head trainer, and he asked if I wanted to wear it and I jumped on it. It was something I was thinking about.

“I told him it was going to bring me luck for this game. And he told me to go get him.”

The score was tied at 28-28 midway through the second quarter after Charlotte scored 21 straight points and the Monarchs appeared to be faltering.

But then Wolff and Jennings proved important to ODU, as they connected on a 51-yard pass that set up a 3-yard Watson touchdown with 2:35 left in the third quarter that gave the Monarchs a 35-28 lead.

Charlotte then reduced the lead, as Jonathan Cruz kicked baskets from 39 and 44 yards, the latter with 10:04 to go to reduce the lead to 35-34.

ODU’s offense then responded again, with Wolff throwing a 32-yard pass to Jennings, an 11-yard pass to Watson and a 25-yard pass in the first year. Jordan bly which gave ODU its first participation in the Charlotte 3.

Two plays later, Watson carried two yards for the touchdown and Rice added the conversation kick to give ODU a 42-34 lead.

Wolff and Jennings put the game almost out of reach with 3:49 remaining when they hit a 36-yard touchdown pass that gave the Monarchs a 49-34 lead.

The ODU defense forced four turnovers, including a fumble recovered and swept into the end zone three minutes from time. Deeve Harris for the final ODU score.

ODU led 14-0 and 28-7 after two first touchdowns set up by interceptions of Joe joe headen and Young, seniors playing their last games at SB Ballard Stadium who also happen to be roommates.

On the second try, Watson carried and pushed his way to the yard line, where he groped into the end zone. Second year tackle Nick saldiveri fell on the ball and was credited with his first career touchdown with 9:15 to go.

Charlotte traveled to ODU 48 on her next possession to see Young intercept, setting up a 65-yard TD, topped by that of Elijah Davis 12-meter race.

After holding Charlotte down, the Monarchs made it 21-0 on a 46-yard touchdown reception from Jennings early in the second quarter. Jennings was well covered and had to lunge while bringing the ball back and hitting the turf at the same time.

After a score from Charlotte, Jennings passed a 34-yard pass to make it 28-7. Charlotte then scored 21 unanswered points to tie the score at 28-28.

ODU administrators expect to know by Sunday December 5 where ODU will play. ESPN announces on December 5 who will play in which bowls. The ODU will be selling game tickets as soon as the Monarchs know their bowl destination.

Rahne said he was planning on going bowling.
