Beckham’s feat doesn’t shock Miles

first_imgBATON ROUGE – Not only has LSU coach Les Miles lost more juniors to the NFL Draft over the last two years with 13, he has to hear about their exploits on Sundays, too.“I’m sitting in my meeting room last night (Sunday night) watching my practice film, and I get a text that says that Odell Beckham Jr. has caught the greatest catch of all time,” Miles said at his weekly press luncheon on Monday of his former wide receiver who was a first round pick of the New York Giants last spring as a junior.“And the way media is, I got probably three different views of this catch,” Miles said. “And it is spectacular. It is truly Odell Beckham.”Beckham reached far behind himself with his right arm and caught the pass from quarterback Eli Manning in the palm of his right hand for a 43-yard touchdown despite a flag for defensive pass interference. The touchdown gave the Giants a 14-3 lead over Dallas in the second quarter, but the Cowboys came back to win 31-28 Sunday night.Beckham, a native of New Orleans and son of former LSU tailback Odell Beckham, finished with 10 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns. He caught 59 passes for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns for LSU last season before becoming the 12th player selected in the NFL Draft.“I saw him and Jarvis (Landry) do things like that on the practice field all the time,” Miles said. “I mean ALL the time. They finally caught one on camera I guess, and it’s something that we would’ve expected.”Landry, a second round pick by the Miami Dolphins as a junior out of LSU via Lutcher High last spring, caught seven passes Sunday for 50 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins’ 39-36 loss to Denver. He led LSU with 77 catches for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.LSU redshirt freshman wide receiver John Diarse of Monroe watched the Beckham catch live.“For the first couple of seconds after it, I couldn’t even get a word out to even describe what I saw,” Diarse said. “I was like, ‘Wow!’ No words could describe it. We used to see him make crazy catches all the time in practice and in games, but not like that one. That’s the best one I’ve ever seen.”LSU outside linebacker Deion Jones echoed Diarse.“I was on my couch, and I had to get up when I saw it,” he said. “I wasn’t surprised because I’ve seen him make similar catches like that in practice on a drag route. I remember one where it was thrown behind him, and he caught it way behind him just like the one on Sunday. He’s something else.”With Beckham and Landry doing most of the receiving, quarterback Zach Mettenberger threw for 3,082 yards and 22 touchdowns last season as a senior at LSU as the Tigers finished 10-3 and 14th in the nation. Now the starter for the Tennessee Titans, the rookie sixth round pick completed 20 of 39 for 345 yards and two touchdowns in a 43-24 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.“And I’m very proud of what’s Zach accomplishing,” Miles said. “He threw for 300 yards.”Also on Sunday, rookie running back Jeremy Hill of LSU gained 87 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown and a 9-yard reception in Cincinnati’s 22-13 win over Houston, which got 46 yards rushing on 16 carries and 20 receiving yards on three catches from rookie running back Alfred Blue of LSU. Hill was selected in the second round as a junior last spring, while Blue went in the sixth round with another season remaining at LSU.“Jeremy Hill and Alfred Blue are having great years as runners,” Miles said. “It’s kind of nice to look back at those guys.”LSU’s offense is missing those guys, though. Going into Thursday night’s regular season finale at Texas A&M (7-4, 3-4 SEC), the unranked Tigers (7-4, 3-4 SEC) are 110th in the nation and 14th out of 14 teams in the SEC in pass offense with 169.1 yards a game behind sophomore quarterback Anthony Jennings and no receivers past their sophomore seasons. Last year, LSU finished sixth in the SEC and 43rd nationally in passing offense with 251 yards a game.Miles has said freshman quarterback Brandon Harris may also play at Texas A&M (6:30 p.m., ESPN).“Quarterback is going to have to play better,” he said. “Both guys are improving. Both guys are coming. I like my quarterbacks. They’re getting better and working hard at it.”INJURY REPORT: LSU starting left guard Vadal Alexander (hand) is expected to play at Texas A&M after missing LSU’s last game – a 17-0 loss at Arkansas on Nov. 15. “So glad that Vadal is back,” Miles said.Starting center Elliott Porter (ankle) will not play at Texas A&M and will be replaced by regular starting right guard Ethan Pocic, Miles said, and Evan Washington will start at right guard. Tailback Kenny Hilliard (shoulder) is also not expected to play Thursday.STAT COMPARISON OF THE DAY: LSU’s passing offense is 110th in the nation and last in the SEC with 169.1 yards a game, but Texas A&M’s pass defense is 83rd nationally and 13th in the SEC with 236 yards allowed a game.last_img read more

Kenney accuser declines to specify which housing rules he says Kenney broke

first_imgEDMONTON — The lawyer accusing Alberta United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney of breaking parliamentary residency rules while serving as an MP is declining to explain which regulation he believes Kenney broke or how he broke it.Kyle Morrow, an Ottawa-based lawyer, was asked twice in email exchanges to identify which parliamentary rule he believes Kenney transgressed while in Stephen Harper’s Conservative cabinet from 2013 to 2015.Morrow replied Tuesday that he is not doing media interviews, while Kenney’s staff have labelled his accusations false and politically motivated given that Morrow once ran for the Alberta Liberals.Morrow has published travel and residency documents on social media that he says show Kenney, as an MP, broke parliamentary rules by listing his primary residence in Calgary even though flight records suggest he rarely visited and stayed most of his time in Ottawa.Morrow said on Twitter that broke parliamentary rules that require him to live primarily in Calgary in order to qualify for subsidies for his second home in Ottawa.Kenney’s staff, however, says no such rule exists.The UCP says that under publicly available parliamentary rules for MPs on housing, Kenney qualified for his Calgary home by showing he has residency in Alberta, with equivalencies like a provincial driver’s licence and paying taxes in the province.Kenney says his work as a cabinet minister kept him in Ottawa for long stretches, that he didn’t charge taxpayers for the Calgary home and that the secondary residence in Ottawa entitled him to about $10,000 a year in subsidies.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
