Via Tomahawk Nation: Here is a look that does the run way more justice. #applypressurePosted by Earnest Graham on Saturday, May 23, 2015Good luck to future opposing ACC defenses.last_img

first_imgMichigan defensive line stuffs Minnesota at the goal line.Twitter/@ByAZunigaThe end to the Michigan-Minnesota game was not exactly a ringing endorsement of interim Gophers coach Tracy Claeys. The Gophers appeared to take the lead on a beautiful touchdown throw by Mitch Leidner to Drew Wolitarsky, but a review showed that he was down at the one yard line. Down 29-26, with a timeout left, Minnesota wasted most of its time before a Leidner incompletion on first down. The Gophers only had time for one more play, and Leidner was stuffed at the goal line by the Michigan defense.Michigan wins. https://t.co/MPy8zslh7i— Alejandro Zúñiga (@ByAZuniga) November 1, 2015Michigan had a huge win stolen a few weeks back, and today the Wolverines came out and stole a win from a very emotionally-charged Minnesota squad.last_img

The company and its subsidiaries including Ticketmaster have supported the philanthropic efforts of countless Live Nation artists including (RED), From One Hand to AnOTHER, The Pies Delscazos Foundation and The Shawn Carter Foundation as well as local charities throughout the 40 US markets where it has operations.

Ohio State athletics selfreported nearly double violations compared to others in Big

Ohio State athletics selfreported nearly double violations compared to others in Big

The Ohio State athletic department self-reported 24 minor violations in the latter half of 2013, about double the amount reported by any of five other Big Ten schools.The Lantern requested all self-reported NCAA violations occurring from June to December 2013 for every Big Ten school except Northwestern, March 16. As of Monday, records were received from Michigan State, Wisconsin, Purdue, Illinois and Minnesota.Northwestern is a private university and is not required to provide public records.Representatives from Michigan, Indiana and Iowa acknowledged and were still processing The Lantern’s request as of Monday. Penn State representatives did not respond to multiple emails requesting the records. Nebraska denied the release of records.“Such records are not subject to disclosure under the Nebraska public records statutes, and therefore, will not be provided to you,” John Wiltse, acting records director for the University of Nebraska said in an emailed statement.Of the records received, the vast majority — totaling 22 violations — were for impermissible contact to prospective student athletes and/or prospective athletes’ parents by an athletic department staff member. BenefitsAside from communicating with prospective student-athletes, there were eight reports of NCAA violations related to athletes receiving impermissible benefits. OSU did not report any violations involving impermissible benefits during the final six months of 2013.At Wisconsin, four incoming freshmen men’s and women’s golf student-athletes participated in a free round of golf before classes began, thus they were still considered potential student-athletes.Illinois, Purdue and Minnesota each reported two violations related to benefits.An Illinois women’s tennis coach provided a prospective athlete with a personalized cookie cake who then tweeted a picture of it resulting in a reported violation.Also at Illinois, a university employed tutor loaned a book to a non-scholarship football student-athlete.Purdue reported an incident in which a student-athlete shipped personal belongings using a university-expensed FedEx account and a second where the university paid for lodging for the parents of a prospective student-athlete before the athlete’s official visit.A Minnesota men’s golf coach bought a meal for a club coach and a women’s golf coach gave a prospective athlete’s father a shirt during a visit. However, the father sent payment for the shirt the following day.Michigan State reported one benefits violation where a high school coach received more than two complimentary admissions to a home athletics event.Though OSU did report any improper benefits in the second half of 2013, the university is familiar with this type of violation.OSU created an Office of Compliance in February 2012 following the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal, which led to the resignation of football coach Jim Tressel, the departure of former Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor and a list of NCAA sanctions which included a one-year bowl ban and vacated all wins from the 2010 season.On Dec. 23, 2010, the NCAA suspended Pryor, running back Dan Herron, receiver DeVier Posey, offensive tackle Mike Adams and defensive end Solomon Thomas – all of whom played for the Buckeyes at the time – for the first five games of the 2011 season for selling memorabilia and receiving improper benefits from Eddie Rife, owner of Fine Line Ink tattoo parlor. Linebacker Jordan Whiting also received a one-game ban. Text messagesIn addition to phone calls, 10 reported violations from the five other schools in the conference were for text messages, compared to one for OSU.A women’s volleyball coach reportedly replied to a text message from a prospective student-athlete, mistakenly thinking the message was an email.Wisconsin and Purdue each reported one impermissible text message, while Minnesota and Illinois each reported two, and Michigan State reported three. VisitsNine violations were reported in relation to prospective student-athletes’ official visits. Purdue reported one. Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan State and OSU each reported two violations.Illinois, Michigan State and OSU reported visits with prospective student-athletes that were made public through social media, in violation of NCAA policy.Don Gerard, the mayor of Champaign, Illinois, and a facilities manager at the university, tweeted about a men’s basketball recruit visit.Members of the OSU synchronized swimming team posted photos of a prospective student-athlete they were hosting on Facebook and Instagram that a coach also commented on.In addition, Purdue and OSU both hosted potential athletes on official visits before those students were registered either with the NCAA Eligibility Center or the university’s institutional request list. Email and social mediaIn the way of digital communication, OSU, Illinois and Wisconsin each reported one email correspondence in violation of NCAA policy.Minnesota also reported two incidents of coaches reaching out to prospective athletes on Facebook prior to the allowed date for communication to be made.Similarly, OSU reported a women’s golf coach accepting a Facebook friend request from a 2016 prospective student-athlete before the permissible date for such communication. MailOSU reported two impermissible mailings sent to prospective student-athletes while Minnesota reported one.An OSU men’s volleyball coach sent letters to two prospective athletes that promised them athletic-related financial aid before they were high school seniors and a field hockey coach “inadvertently” sent recruiting materials to a 2016 prospective student-athlete.Minnesota marketing sent impermissible recruiting material to a potential student-athlete. Phone callsThere were 11 total reported violations for impermissible phone calls, six of which were reported by OSU.The OSU Compliance Office determined there were multiple phone calls by football team staff members to prospective student-athletes and/or their parents. The report says they were the result of inadvertent “pocket dials.”OSU’s women’s soccer, wrestling, women’s lacrosse, field hockey and women’s volleyball teams all reported at least one occurrence of an impermissible phone call to a prospective student-athlete.Minnesota reported two events of impermissible phone calls to prospective student-athletes and Illinois reported one which was an accident.Michigan State reported two impermissible phone calls, one for an assistant women’s track and field coach who exceeded the number of permissible phone calls to a prospective student athlete.A Michigan State assistant coach also placed an impermissible call to a prospective student-athlete. Other ViolationsThe Minnesota Office of Student Finance did not have squad lists signed and on file prior to the first competition for women’s tennis, women’s golf and men’s golf.A Wisconsin assistant coach posted a link on an online wrestling forum to an article stating that a potential student-athlete made a verbal commitment to the university.A member of the OSU football coaching staff reportedly used smokeless tobacco product during a game, violating NCAA bylaws.Michigan State reported a violation after a news article involving a prospective student athlete were posted to Michigan State’s Pinterest page. EligibilityWisconsin reported two violations in relation to players’ eligibility while Illinois and OSU each reported one.Two incoming prospective OSU student-athletes, one in men’s soccer and the other in women’s volleyball, participated in voluntary workouts conducted by an OSU strength coach while not enrolled at the university.An Illinois football player competed in the first five games of the season while not eligible because he didn’t have the necessary percent of degree completed to meet requirements.A football player and a member of the men’s basketball team at Wisconsin each competed while enrolled in less than 12 credit hours. At Wisconsin, a member of the women’s swimming team practiced with the team more than 45 days after she did not have certification of amateur status. read more

Faulconer visited the facility Monday to meet with the staff and discuss the operation. Ed Lenderman got to talk a little more with Mayor Faulconer about how the storage center is helping homeless individuals as well as the surrounding community.The 22,000 square-foot center, operated by Mental Health Systems, provides up to 500 lockable storage bins for use by homeless individuals. Part of Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer’s comprehensive “Connect, Support, House” strategy to reduce homelessness in San Diego, the center helps eliminate a major barrier preventing some homeless individuals from accessing supportive services to help turn their lives around.The storage center also aims to help reduce clutter on streets and public areas, aiding the City’s efforts to improve the cleanliness of neighborhoods. In addition to providing storage opportunities for homeless individuals, the City and operator Mental Health Systems have taken several proactive steps to ensure the facility is a good neighbor, including:• Limit storage capacity to 500 bins.• Clients by referral only for first 90 days of operation.• Creating a Neighborhood Advisory Committee to develop relationships and partnerships throughout the community to assist with addressing concerns or issues.• Conducting homeless outreach to reduce homelessness in the surrounding community.• Preventing queuing around the facility.• Proactively removing litter, debris and graffiti on the premises.• Prohibiting alcohol and drug use on site.• Reporting criminal activity to law enforcement.• Providing an enhanced level of police presence to address nuisance behavior and criminal activity as necessary.• Increasing frequency of community cleanups in the area by the Environmental Services Department.
