Vols eye bowl while Vandy aims to spoil

first_imgTennessee can end its longest stretch of losing seasons in school history and finally snap a bowl drought on Saturday.Vanderbilt, amid an otherwise frustrating season, would find satisfaction in making sure none of that happens for its rival when the game kicks off at 3 p.m. (SEC Network).“It would be great for us to both be here just watching bowl games this year,” Vanderbilt nose tackle Vince Taylor said. “But there is even more to it than that. This is pretty much the state championship game.”The Vols (5-6, 2-5 SEC) must beat Vanderbilt (3-8, 0-7) to earn bowl eligibility for the first time since 2010. They have endured four consecutive losing seasons, tied for the longest such dry spell in school history. And to make matters worse, Tennessee has suffered back-to-back losses to Vanderbilt for the first time since 1925-26.All that could end by beating the Commodores, more than a two-touchdown underdog in its home stadium.“It is a big game for a number of reasons,” Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. “It is a big game because it is the last regular-season opportunity that our seniors will have. It is a chance to build momentum in moving forward. We are fighting for bowl eligibility. It is an in-state rivalry game. So there is a lot on the line.“All of our focus and opportunity, even (athletic director) Dave (Hart)’s focus, is on Vanderbilt (rather than possible bowl bids) and trying to get a victory and scratch and claw on Saturday.”Per usual in the rivalry, the two teams tout a cross-section of some of the state’s recent top high school talent. Vanderbilt carries 18 Tennessee natives on its roster, while much of Tennessee’s crop of young standouts hail from the midstate – including running back Jalen Hurd (Beech), wide receiver Josh Malone (Station Camp), defensive end Derek Barnett (Brentwood Academy) and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin (Clarksville Northeast) among others.“It is definitely big for our program, to get to win number six,” Reeves-Maybin said. “We are just focused on that right now, not looking ahead to a bowl game. All eyes are on Vanderbilt, obviously. They got us the last two years, but there are a lot of guys on that team who haven’t been a part of that.”The rivalry is somewhat new to many on both teams. Vanderbilt has played 31 freshmen, true and redshirt combined, this year – the highest number in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Tennessee has played 23 true freshmen, which ranks highest nationally in that category.But some on both squads know how the last two meetings have felt, with Vanderbilt winning 41-18 at home in 2012 and 14-10 in Knoxville last season. Before that, the Vols had won 28 of the previous 29 meetings.“When you live in the state of Tennessee and heckled by those fans all the time, you’re glad to have a leg up on them for 364 days out of the year,” said Vanderbilt offensive tackle Andrew Jelks, a former Henry County standout that faced several current Vols in high school.Added Tennessee defensive back Cameron Sutton: “We can’t worry about the past. A lot of the guys on this team haven’t played Vanderbilt and don’t know much about Vanderbilt. We are just trying to tell the young guys the meaning behind the game.”First-year Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason will face the Vols for the first time. Earlier in the rivalry week, he refused to refer to the opponent by its name, opting instead to call Tennessee “that team out east.”Jones said his players have “bigger things to worry about,” such as ending a bowl drought. Both coaches, at least, agree on the stakes of the game.“This (Vanderbilt) football team has something to prove. I’m sure the team out east has something to prove, looking at trying to get bowl eligible,” Mason said. “It’s a big deal because it’s where you live, where you reside.“There is a lot riding on this game. So let’s push all the chips in and go play.Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.

Produced by Quincy B himself, the 21 year-old artist’s vocal ability is prolific.In an interview a few months back and before the release of the song Quincy B said, “This is the first time I’m in love and don’t know how to express it.

This song has accelerated to more than 5,000 thousand views on YouTube alone. DenG is well known for making hit songs and since debuting in the industry on a song by Queen V, “Jue You Bad,” he has managed to maintain his place at the top. Holding the third-place slot is his song, “Kemah”, a smash hit among the ladies. Since its release over five months ago it has remained unbeatable. But there are two things you may not know about DenG: he won four major awards in a single year for the song “They Vex”. Yet there are no official video of all these hits song he has made.Grabbing second place is Mr. Smith with “More fire.” This song has been garnering international recognition, and during its first month of release it debuted on Sound City in Nigeria and went West Africa chart 10 places respectively.Mr. Smith is currently in Nigeria, trying to break into the industry, and is working hard on a new album called “The Street Music”.Soul Fresh,the hottest musical group in the nation is holding first place with “Grace” featuring Quincy B.

Liverpool transfer news: Balotelli OUT, one of these FIVE strikers IN?

first_img 3. The powerhouse centre forward – Christian Benteke (Aston Villa) – Aston Villa are unlikely to want to part with their strike star having seen him batter home 37 goals in just 79 games since he joined from Genk. With money tight and the squad needing additions Paul Lambert may be tempted to cash in though and Benteke could be the perfect remedy for Bredan Rodgers’ striker problems. 2. One of Europe’s in-form strikers – Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – If you think Alexis Sanchez is on form then you haven’t been paying attention at events across the Channel. French forward Lacazette, 23, has scored an astonishing 19 goals in 20 games for Lyon, who sit top of Ligue 1, and made five assists too. It would be a huge statement of intent if Liverpool could land the hotshot by Lyon are unlikely to let him leave without a fight. 6 6 6 6 5. A South American sensation – Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli) – Liverpool may have another reason to thank Rafa Benitez if they can pull off this coup. Napoli have just landed Manolo Gabbiadini from Sampdoria and this deal has raised question marks about Higuain’s future. The Argentine has hit nine Serie A goals and made three assists in his 18 appearances this season and a bid of £30million could see him switch Naples for Merseyside. Mario Balotelli could be leaving Liverpool in January as Juventus plot a £14million raid for the striker, but who could the Reds sign to boost their goal scoring options? Take a look at the targets – just click to the next slide using the yellow arrow above! It looks like Mario Balotelli’s second spell in England could be close to an end as Juvenus plot a £14million move for the Liverpool star.Just two goals in 18 appearances so far is a miserable return on a £16million outlay so when Brendan Rodgers moves for his replacement he will be looking for more value for money.Saido Berahino is one of several players linked with a switch to Anfield to take Balotelli’s spot in the Merseysiders’ squad, but who else is Rodgers looking to? Take a look at the slideshow above.Who would you like to replace Balotelli? Comment below… 4. The English starlet – Saido Berahino (West Brom) – The newly crowned England Under-21 player of the year is one of the rising stars of the Premier League and after hitting nine goals last campaign has proceeded to score 14 already this time out. His talents in front of goal couldn’t save Alan Irvine but they could propel Liverpool back into the top four if Brendan Rodgers decides to swoop. 6 6 1. The cut-price gamble – Ezequiel Lavezzi (Paris Saint-Germain) – It hasn’t been a vintage campaign for the Argentine international, having scored twice in 13 appearances across the Channel. This has been compounded by a two game suspension after he and Edinson Cavani returned late from their Christmas holidays. Available for around £8million, Lavezzi could be an inspired signing but is also a risky move considering his current attitude. Now where have we heard that before?last_img read more

Hibs complete signing of defender Adam Jackson

first_img“I’m really pleased we have been able to get the deal for Adam over the line,” the manager told the club’s official website.“The fact it’s come so early in the summer is hopefully indicative of the work that has gone on and is going on behind the scenes here. It also shows Adam’s own enthusiasm to play for Hibernian.“I know all about Adam’s qualities having signed him in the first place for Barnsley and he was one I was set on bringing to Easter Road.“Adam initially caught my eye when he excelled at a young age in League Two with Hartlepool United and I watched him for a long time before signing him for Barnsley. Hibernian have announced their second signing of the summer, adding defender Adam Jackson to Paul Heckingbottom’s squad.Jackson joins under freedom of contract after reaching the end of his deal at Barnsley, where he played for three seasons.The 25-year old completed a medical at Hibs’ training ground and joins Scott Allan in committing to the club for next season.Jackson will be reunited with Heckingbottom, who signed him at Oakwell. “Adam has a real physical presence. He is strong in the air and understands how we want to defend and how we look to play out from the back. So, he’s ideally suited to the way we like to play.”Jackson took in the final Edinburgh derby of the season and said he was eager to get started in the Scottish Premiership. “I’m delighted to be joining Hibernian,” he said. “With the stature of the club and having worked with Paul previously it was a no-brainer for me.“I know what he expects of me and I know what I can deliver for him.“I obviously got a glimpse of what to expect when I was up for the game against Hearts and I’m looking forward to experience it all myself when I report back with the rest of the boys in three weeks.”last_img read more

Risinger Pleads Not-Guilty to Murder

first_imgThe body was found in the living room of the trailer. Washington County Circuit Judge Larry Medlock assigned Andrew Wright to represent Risinger. Risinger remains charged with only one count of Murder, a Class A Felony. Earlier today the Prosecutor’s office said they chose to file only murder charge at this time because it appears that the fire was started with the intent to kill. Risinger is currently being held at the Washington County Detention Center without bail. The Kentucky Medical Examiner did an autopsy on the body recovered from the fire on Wednesday and was not able to determine a cause of death or an identity. Further testing will be done to make a determination. Salem Fire Chief Tom Day said he was working with the State Fire Marshall to determine a cause of the fire. The pre-trial conference has been set for April 20 at 9a. The jury trial has been set for Oct. 3 at 8:30a. 28-year-old Joshua Risinger pled not-guilty this afternoon in Washington County Circuit Court to a murder charge he’s facing after he told police he set fire to his trailer at Southway Villa Mobile Home Park Tuesday night. A dead body was found in the remnants of the fire. Police are still investigating to find out who the body is. Their only clue is that Risinger told ISP Detectives he had started the fire to kill “Gilbert” who had apparently been living there. last_img read more
