Stephen Curry addresses Durant comments as Warriors’ slo-mo split drones on

first_imgBy now it’s clear that Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Kevin Durant came together a lot quicker and smoother than they have drifted apart.They don’t seem to know what to say, how to characterize their three seasons together.Recently Durant took a shot at it via an interview with the Wall Street Journal Magazine, saying he “definitely felt accepted” when he joined the Warriors. “But,” he said, “I’ll never be one of those guys. I didn’t get drafted there. …last_img

Wisconsin Star Joe Schobert Thinks Iowa’s Offensive Line May Be Better Than Alabama’s

first_imgWisconsin's stadium from the back of one of the end zones.MADISON, WI – SEPTEMBER 10: A general view of Camp Randall Stadium as the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Oregon State Beavers at on September 10, 2011 in Madison Wisconsin. Wisconsin defeated Oregon State 35-0. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)In the season opener, Wisconsin went up against Alabama, and the Crimson Tide had little trouble opening up holes for star running back Derrick Henry. The junior back ran for 147 yards and three touchdowns on just 13 carries against the Badgers. Wisconsin star linebacker Joe Schobert doesn’t think that ‘Bama necessarily has the best offensive line that he’s faced. That honor goes to the Iowa Hawkeyes. Schobert had a monster game in a losing effort against Iowa, with three sacks and two forced fumbles, but he had a ton of praise for the Hawkeyes, per The Gazette. “I put them on par with Alabama, maybe even a little more,” Schobert told the Dubuque Telegraph Herald. “They want to hit you more than Alabama wants to hit you. Alabama is a good, physical offensive line, but I think Iowa kind of takes it to that next step and wants to run at you and wants to physically punch you. We knew that coming in and they lived up to it today. It was just great competition between us and them.”The advanced line stats tell a bit of a mixed story. According to Football Study Hall, Alabama ranks 23rd nationally in adjusted line rushing yards, and 40th in adjusted sack rate. Iowa is better in preventing sack (18th) but lags behind in the run blocking analytics (69th). Either way, Iowa should be proud of the huge Big Ten West win. Being mentioned in the same breath as Alabama is rarely a bad thing.[The Gazette]last_img read more

Parents Of Texas A&M’s Admon Gilder Left Game Early, Missed His Game-Tying Layup vs. Northern Iowa

first_imgAdmon Gilder shoots a lay up against Northern Iowa.Twitter/@marchmadnessTexas A&M’s epic comeback against Northern Iowa, in which the Aggies made up a 12 point deficit in 44 seconds, is statistically the greatest last-minute comeback in college basketball history. Unfortunately, the parents of Admon Gilder, the Aggie who capped off the comeback with the game-tying layup before the buzzer, weren’t in the arena to see it. The Gilders left the game minutes earlier, assuming that the Aggies were about to lose, to head back to Dallas with work the next morning. Of course, because of it they missed their son being part of basketball history.Admon Gilder says his parents left Northern Iowa game early to get back to Dallas for work. Watched end in car on phone.— Kate Hairopoulos (@khairopoulos) March 23, 2016Yahoo Sports‘ Jeff Eisenberg has more:“They left the game with probably about a minute to go,” the younger Gilder said Wednesday. “They were at the gas station on the way back and someone came out and told them that I’d just hit the game-tying shot.”Paula and Admon Sr. both had to be at work early the next morning in their hometown of Dallas, a roughly four-hour drive from Oklahoma City. They decided they were already too far from the arena to turn around, so they followed overtime and double overtime on their phones instead.Gilder, now an Aggie hero, doesn’t hold it against his parents.“I probably would have left too,” Gilder said.Don’t expect to see the Gilders leaving Thursday’s game in Anaheim against Oklahoma early…unless they think they’re bringing the team a bit of luck.[Yahoo Sports]More: Vote In Our “Most Annoying People In Sports Media” Bracket >>>last_img read more

Medina – September 14, 2019 Atalanta manager, Gian Piero Gasperini, has revealed why he rejected Internazionale Milan’s job proposal over the summer transfer window.“Clearly, after Chievo went down to 10 men, we pushed a bit more just to be on the safe side, but then they lost confidence and enthusiasm.“Hopefully this can be a turning point for us. Ilicic brought quality, as did Papu Gomez, while their movements and combinations create space for the midfielders to push up too.“These three points are a confidence booster for us.”last_img read more
