Vanderbilt won’t change defense for triple option

first_imgVanderbilt will face a different offense on Saturday in Charleston Southern’s triple-option attack, but the Commodores aren’t changing a thing defensively.“We’re going to keep the same game plan, just go out and attack,” safety Jahmel McIntosh said. “There is no change in our game plan or how we prepare for this game.”Charleston Southern (5-0) is the only Vanderbilt opponent that relies primarily on a triple-option offense. Coach Derek Mason said it does not change how Vanderbilt (1-5) approaches the homecoming game, but some extra time will be spent going over assignments in defending the triple-option.“You’re able to teach it in phases so that guys understand when I’ve got dive, when I’ve got quarterback and when I have pitch,” he said.Related: James Franklin testifies in Vandy rape caseClimer: Vandy QBs a ‘roller coaster’But Mason said the structure of his 3-4 defensive scheme will not change because defending the option is much like facing a spread offense that runs a zone-read option play between a quarterback and running back. But in the triple-option offense, the third option is a pitch man in the backfield rather than a wide receiver catching a bubble screen in a spread offense.“It’s still the same structure, so you don’t change what you do,” Mason said. “It’s still the same configuration in terms of the inside guys playing the inside. … It’s the same scheme, same dynamic, except now it’s all run versus the possible pass component (in a spread).”Charleston Southern ranks 21st in rushing offense in the Football Championship Subdivision, averaging 215.2 yards. But the Buccaneers also have passed for 196.4 yards off play-action throws from triple-option looks.Mason said he has used multiple quarterbacks on the scout team in practice to emulate a triple-option offense, even putting kick returner/defensive back Darrius Sims behind center for a few snaps.Mason’s most recent experience against the triple-option came last season as defensive coordinator at Stanford.“We beat Army pretty convincingly (34-20),” Mason said. “We understand how to defend it, and it’s more about having a disciplined defensive attack and understanding what you’re getting — who has dive, who has quarterback, who has pitch, and then understanding that the play-action (pass) is going to come off of it. And when the play-action comes, eyes have to be right, guys have to be in position.”Quarterback Austin Brown, a UAB transfer, has rushed for 123 yards and three touchdowns and passed for 859 yards and eight scores. Running back Christian Reyes has rushed for a team-high 350 yards and four TDs.Related: Vandy not helped by tough scheduleRelated: Ex-Vandy, UT players sue over use of imagesReach Sam Brown at 615-259-8010 or on Twitter @Bearded_Sports.VANDERBILT (1-5) vs.CHARLESTON SOUTHERN (5-0)When: 6:30 p.m. SaturdayTV/radio: SportSouth/1510-AM, 95.9-FM, 560-AMlast_img read more

String of plays led to LSU’s game-winning FG

first_imgBATON ROUGE – What did LSU’s thrilling, last seconds 30-27 victory over Florida Saturday really come down to?Obviously, Colby Delahoussaye’s career-long, 50-yard field goal with three seconds to go won the game.But the field goal does not happen without LSU defensive back Rickey Jefferson’s interception of Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel three plays prior and his 23-yard return to the Gators’ 36-yard line with 24 seconds to go.“Last week I missed a pick at Auburn,” Jefferson said Monday. “I mean, missing a pick in a big time game, it haunted me. It haunted me. To get it out of my system felt good – really good.”And Jefferson’s interception does not happen unless LSU outside linebacker Kwon Alexander, who was all over the field throughout the night with a game-high seven solo tackles, sticks Florida wide receiver Latroy Pittman, who had a good pass by Driskel in his hands at the LSU 41-yard line with less than 30 seconds to play. With a completion, the Gators would have had a couple more plays to get into field goal range for their potential game winner.Alexander, though, jarred the ball loose. But Jefferson still does not come up with the interception if the ball doesn’t bounce off Pittman’s helmet and stay alive for a few seconds more. Pittman suffered a concussion on the play and was taken to the hospital. He has been released and is expected to be fine.That was a great defensive play by Alexander and Jefferson, but a more critical one by the Tigers may have been a tackle by safety Ronald Martin and cornerback Rashard Robinson with 2:08 to go in the fourth quarter. This was just after LSU took a 27-24 lead with 2:40 to play on an 11-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Anthony Jennings to wide receiver Travin Dural.On the very next play from scrimmage, Robinson let Florida wide receiver Demarcus Robinson get behind him deep for a 73-yard completion – 37 in the air and 36 after the catch – to the LSU 2. Robinson beat Robinson badly, then faked him out as badly and appeared headed to the end zone when Robinson finally grabbed his arm. Then just in the nick of time, Martin arrived to push Robinson out of bounds at the 2.This play was extremely important because Florida did not score a touchdown, instead settling for an 18-yard field goal by Francisco Velez and a 27-27 tie with 1:49 left after Florida coach Will Muschamp decided not to go for it on fourth-and-goal from the 1. Had Robinson scored, Florida would have led 31-27 and could have killed the clock on its later possession. And a field goal would have not helped LSU.“If you think about them not tackling that man before he crossed the goal line, how much different that game would have been,” LSU coach Les Miles said Monday. “They caught that man at the 10 and wrestled him out of bounds to set up an opportunity for our defense to come forward and stop it. Extremely relentless effort by Rashard Robinson and Ronald Martin.”On first-and-goal from the 2, Martin stopped Brandon Powell for 1 yard. On second-and-goal, middle linebacker Kendell Beckwith and outside linebacker Deion Jones stopped Driskel for no gain. This was the worst rush defense in the SEC mounting a goal line stand. On third down, tight end Tevin Westbrook dropped a touchdown right in his hands.“They could not get a yard,” Miles said. “I have to say that was a huge piece of the game.”Also huge and very smart at this juncture was Miles calling a timeout after the second and goal and after the third-and-goal. This meant LSU had enough time later on after Jefferson’s interception with 24 seconds to play to give it to tailback Terrence Magee for 3 yards. Delahoussaye may have needed the extra 3 yards as his field goal sailed through close to the left upright.Miles also correctly ran the ball in that situation instead of trying to pass the Tigers closer for a shorter field goal. He may have been able to get two passes in, but Jennings had been sacked in each of LSU’s last two possessions. A sack would have put the Tigers out of field goal range.In further retrospect, the game likely does get to the field goal by Delahoussaye, the interception by Jefferson, the hit by Alexander or the touchdown saving tackle by Robinson and Martin if LSU does not convert a third-and-25 from its 33-yard line with 3:40 to play in the game and trailing 24-20.Jennings had just been sacked for an 11-yard loss on first down, then gained a yard on second down. Knowing the game was in the balance, Miles called his first timeout of the half at the 3:40 mark to talk things over.“This is going to leave them with third-and-forever,” SEC Network play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger said. Then forever got longer as LSU’s sideline sent an extra player on the field after the timeout for a substitution penalty. What’s another 5 yards?“Oh boy, big mistake,” Musburger said. “It was third-and-forever. Now, it becomes forever and a day. There’s no play in the playbook for this third down.”Wrong. Dural got wide open behind the defense down the far sideline for a 41-yard completion and first down at the Florida 13. And he was not the only one open. Tight end DeSean Smith was also running free up the middle of the field. The Gators really missed injured cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, who was injured in the first half and did not return to the game.On second-and-eight from the 11, Jennings threw to a well-covered Dural because Dural’s left arm was being held well by cornerback Brian Poole. But Jennings put it where only Dural could get it, and Dural made a spectacular, one-handed catch in the corner of the end zone for the TD. The interference penalty was declined. “This might be the catch of the season,” Musburger said. “Oh, baby!”Jennings finished 10-of-21 for 110 yards, but he was 3-of-4 for 60 yards with a touchdown on LSU’s last series before the winning field goal and 2-of-2 to Dural for 52 yards and the touchdown.“I have the utmost confidence in that guy,” Jennings said of Dural. “Our guys never gave up in this game. Our line blocked their tails off. Keep fighting. This season’s not over. It’s my first time in The Swamp. It’s going to be a great memory.”And Musburger went from third-and-forever and a day to a believer. “I thought all along that LSU was going to get better as the season went on,” he said.But it was LSU reserve defensive back John Battle who called the fantastic finish.“Before the interception by Jefferson, he came up to me,” Delahoussaye said. “And he actually said, ‘Hey man, get ready to be on ESPN with the game winner.’ He told me that, and I’m like, ‘Man, where’s John getting this from?’ And then the interception happened. And he came up to me and said, ‘Hey man, I told you. You’re about to kick the game winner.’ I was like, ‘This guy right here, what’s he talking about?’ And then after I kicked it, he was one of the first ones on the field, and he said, ‘Hey, I told you.’ It was all pretty awesome.”last_img read more

Arsenal negotiations for midfielder at impasse – Current Gunners offer ‘insufficient’

first_imgThe Spanish midfielder has been impressive since joining Arsenal on loan from Madrid this summer, despite the Gunners struggles.It’s a move they want to make permanent and, if reports are to be believed, he’s keen on that happening as well.Last week we covered claims he had met with Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez to tell him that if Arsenal make a bid, he would like them to find an agreement.That came from El Desmarque, and they update the story today, with the situation not looking good for Arsenal as it stands.Embed from Getty ImagesThe website claims Arsenal have proposed a deal worth €30m to Real Madrid, but that is ‘insufficient’ as Pérez wants €35m.The Madrid president is reluctant to let Ceballos go, but the midfielder knows that he doesn’t have a future at the club under Zinedine Zidane.That gives Arsenal an advantage, although a potential change in manager could ‘complicate things’ for them.Should José Mourinho return to the Bernabeu, he might want to use him, having watched the midfielder playing all season as part of his new role as a pundit.Thus, talks about a potential move to Arsenal might have to wait until Christmas, when a change in coach in Madrid might ‘unlock’ the situation, something Arsenal will be praying doesn’t happen.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

PSG for the first time in the final of the Champions…

first_imgThomas Tuchel had to give instructions sitting because of a fractured leg. His colleague Julian Nagelsman admitted that PSG was the better team. PHOTO: Reuters PSG reached convincingly its first final in the Champions League.At Lush Stadium in Lisbon, where the final corona phase of the tournament is taking place. the French champion hit 3-0 in Germany “RB Leipzig”.In the 13th minute, the master of assists Angel di Maria centered from a direct free kick and Marquinhos opened the score with a header.3 minutes before the break Di Maria made the lead of PSG 2: 0 after a pass from the megastar Neymar.In the 56th minute, Di Maria again put the ball on the head of Juan Bernat and the defender made the final 3-0.PSG will meet the winner of Bayern (Ger) – Lyon (Fr) in the final.With his two assists, Di Maria already has 24 in the last 10 seasons of the Champions League. Only Cristiano Ronaldo (30) and Lionel Messi (26) recorded more of it.The match between PSG and RB Leipzig was a kind of duel between a teacher and a student.When Tuchel was the coach of the second team of “Augsburg”, Nagelsman was part of the team. However, he received a serious injury.Tuhel immediately began using him as a scout scout. “He was doing great. It turned out that even at such a young age he understood football very well. Even then it became clear to me that he would become a very good coach,” says Tuhel.At 33, Nagelsman became the youngest coach to qualify for a semi-final in the Champions League.last_img read more
