Auburn quick hits: 3 things, mini grades

first_imgAuburn Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn reacts to Auburn Tigers defensive back Blake Countess being ejected during the first half against Jacksonville State on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.Auburn Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn reacts to Auburn Tigers defensive back Blake Countess being ejected during the first half against Jacksonville State on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. 3 things worth talking about Jeez Jeremy Jeremy Johnson has thrown five picks in his first two games this season. He’s the first SEC quarterback to do that since 2009. Is it him? Is it the offense? Johnson and the Tigers go into SEC play needing to figure it all out before facing LSU in Death Valley next week. Too mobile For a second straight game, Auburn struggled stopping a dual-threat QB. Eli Jenkins was making the right decisions nine times out of 10 on whether to keep the ball or give it to the running back. Must be a concern going into its next two games against LSU’s Brandon Harris and Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott. Early fatigue Auburn’s uptempo offense often leads to its defense having to play a bunch of snaps. The Tigers defended against 89 plays Saturday in giving up 438 yards of total offense. Jacksonville State possessed the ball for 35 minutes, 25 seconds with 10:27 of that coming in the fourth quarter. If this trend continues, Will Muschamp’s defense will wilt in November. Mini grades Rushing offense — B: Peyton Barber put the Tigers on his back with 125 yards and the game-winning touchdown on 23 carries.Rushing defense — C-: Tigers struggled stopping the read option. Quarterback Eli Jenkins was doing a masterful job, but Auburn caught up with him in OT.Passing offense — D: Throwing a game-tying touchdown to force OT is the only thing keeping Jeremy Johnson from having a failing grade. Threw 2 TDs, but was intercepted twice and made some poor throws.Passing defense — C-: Got better defending the deep ball in second half, but Jenkins connected several times downfield to essentially two receivers.Special teams – A-: Daniel Carlson made both field goals. Kevin Phillips placed all three of his punts inside the 20-yard line. Carlson did hit a kickoff out of bounds.Coaching – D: Auburn coach Gus Malzahn admitted he has to put Johnson in better situations, but his team came out flat to start a game it should have dominated from the start. Auburn was a 47-point favoriteOverall – D: Lucky to win against an FCS school. Plain and simple.last_img read more

Louisiana Tech preview: Bulldogs head into 2015 with high expectations

TBABossier Parish playersRB Jarred Craft, Haughton, So.RB Marlon Seets, Haughton, Sr.LB Dante Williams, Parkway, Fr.WR Javonte Woodard, Haughton, Fr.After winning the Conference USA West Division title and defeating Illinois in the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl last season, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs enter the 2015 season with high expectations.“I have to keep pinching myself to try and bring down the energy level,” said Louisiana Tech third-year coach Skip Holtz when the players reported to practice last month. “There is a lot of energy right now. There is a lot of excitement. We had a lot of success last year against bowl teams. The players love the white helmets and the uniforms. There is a brand new turf out there. There is a brand new south end zone.”Louisiana Tech installed FieldTurf in the offseason and the new 70,000-square foot Davison Athletic Complex that encloses the South end zone is ready.But what’s creating the most excitement is the team that Holtz is expected to put on that turf. Tech was picked to repeat as West Division champs by media at the conference’s media day in July.The Bulldogs return six starters on offense and six on defense from a team that finished 9-5 last season, including 7-1 in CUSA. Facing a tough early season schedule, Tech started 2-3 and then won five of its last six with the loss coming against Old Dominion in overtime.The Bulldogs lost a 26-23 heartbreaker to Marshall in the CUSA Championship Game before defeating the Big Ten’s Illinois 35-18 in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.One of Tech’s biggest losses from last season is quarterback Cody Sokol. A fifth-year senior, he passed for 3,436 yards and a 30 touchdowns.Jeff Driskel, another fifth-year senior who transferred from Florida, is the new starter.Driskel was the top prospect in the nation out of high school but struggled at Florida. Holtz, though, expects big things out of Driskel at Tech.“He’s got great athleticism in the way that he can run,” Holtz said. “But what’s really impressed me about Jeff is the way he’s come in and earned this team’s respect. He’s been incredibly humble. He’s worked extremely hard.“I’ve really been impressed watching him read defenses, throwing the ball and making decisions as we went through spring practice. I think he’s a great talent.”Another great talent, running back Kenneth Dixon, returns for his senior year. Dixon rushed for 1,299 yards and on 254 carries last season. He had 22 rushing TDs and six receiving.Dixon is the school’s all-time leading rusher and the leading active rusher in the NCAA with 3,410 yards. He has scored 61 career TDs, including 53 rushing.“You can measure Kenneth — look at height, weight and speed — but the things that really make him special are those intangibles,” Holtz said. “He plays the game with such a passion, such an energy, You’ve got to tackle him because he’s not going down easy. He’s a great competitor. He’s had a great offseason. We were really excited when he decided to come back for his senior year. He’s coming back with a mission.”Driskel will have three talented receivers to throw to, including preseason All-CUSA selection Trent Taylor. The former Evangel star led the Bulldogs with 64 catches for 834 yards and nine TDs last season.Also returning are Paul Turner (42-514, 4 TDs) and Carlos Henderson (29-569, 4 TDs), both of whom are capable of making big plays.Former Haughton star Jarred Craft, who was Tech’s second-leading rusher last season a freshman with 294 yards on 83 carries and four TDs last season, is expected to see playing time again in the backfield along with Blake Martin and newcomer Boston Scott.Senior center Kirby Wixon also returns.Tech’s defense led the nation last season in forced turnovers and tied for the lead in interceptions.Preseason All-Conference selections Vernon Butler and Xavier Woods tops the list of returnees.Butler, part of a talented returning secondary that includes Adairius Barnes and Kentrell Brice, intercepted six passes and forced three fumbles last season. He was second on the team with 73 tackles.Butler had 56 tackles, including a team-high 13.5 for loss. Brice led the team with 86 tackles last season.Blake Baker has been promoted to defensive coordinator. He replaces Manny Diaz, now at Mississippi State.“I like the nucleus,” Holtz said. “Blake Baker who was in the system last year so you’re going to see a very similar style of defense with the same terminology so you’ll see these players grow another year in that system.”— Russell Hedges, rhedges@bossierpress.comTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat Insurance|SponsoredSponsoredUndoNews gadgetThis watch takes the whole country by storm! it’s price?

AdChoices广告Out went Branislav Ivanovic as Conte switched to a back three of Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta.“It can be a big change in the tactical aspect. More than the system, what is important is the principles,” Conte said after the 2-0 win.Costa delivered for Chelsea again“This week we’ve worked a lot. We must find the right way to be more compact, and a clean sheet is important for the confidence.“We are working very hard and we must continue in this way. We have different options, that’s normal. Together we win, together we lose.”Diego Costa was on top form, setting up Willian for Chelsea’s opening goal and then doubling the lead with a fine strike, taking his tally for the season to six.“It’s fantastic for him and for us that he’s scored six goals,” Conte declared.“Diego has opportunities in every game but what’s important is the work he does for the team, together with Willian and Eden Hazard.“After two defeats it’s never easy, but I’m pleased with the commitment and attitude, We are working very hard.

I consider him one of the best strikers in the world,” said Conte.“When you have a player, a striker, who scores 30 goals every season, for sure when he’s missing you can feel this. But, at the same time, Tottenham are an important team for the whole team.Embed from Getty Images “They have many important players, many talented players. They play good football with great intensity. Also, in the past, they showed that, despite Kane missing many games, nothing has changed.”Kane, winner of the Premier League golden boot for the past two seasons, has been in prolific form once again this campaign.He hit 35 goals for Spurs in all competitions before his injury in the recent win at Bournemouth. Chelsea’s strikers, in contrast, have struggled to find the net on a regular basis.Conte backs MorataAlvaro Morata, on the other hand, has not managed a Premier League goal since Boxing Day, while January signing Olivier Giroud is still waiting for his first league strike since joining Chelsea from Arsenal.Morata’s poor form saw him left out of Spain’s squad during the international break, although Conte has backed the former Real Madrid player to enjoy a productive end to the season.[media-credit name=”Action Plus” align=”alignnone” width=”1000″][/media-credit]“I think that, in the last week and this week, he has worked very well,” the Italian coach said of Morata.“I think that he needed to work hard because, don’t forget, Alvaro was out for one and a half months with his back problem.“Now Alvaro is really fit, 100 per cent, and ready to have an important final of the season: for Chelsea and then, for him, to have the chance to go and play in the World Cup.”While Spurs are hoping Kane can make a remarkable comeback, Chelsea also have injury concerns regarding key players.Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois faces a late fitness test on a hamstring problem picked up before he went away with Belgium, while centre-back Andreas Christensen was sent back to west London by Denmark due to muscle fatigue.Conte also confirmed he will definitely be without defender David Luiz for at least another three weeks because of a knee issue and that midfielder Ross Barkley will play for the Under-23 side this weekend to improve his fitness.center_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
