Sept. 26, 2015Patrick Towles celebrates his touchdown with teammates C.J Conrad and Kyle Meadows after scoring against Missouri in the first half. Sept. 26, 2015“I gave him a game ball,” Stoops said. “I thought he played a really good game and made some really good plays with his feet and was aggressive down the stretch.”With Towles and the rest of the offense struggling against Florida, Kentucky appeared on the verge of a full-blown quarterback controversy. Fans wasted no time in calling for redshirt freshman backup quarterback Drew Barker to see the field, but Towles silenced some of those critics with one of the best performances of his career against Missouri.Towles completed 22 of 27 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. He added 21 yards and one touchdown on nine carries.“It’s a good thing I don’t care about most people,” Towles said. “Just going back to practice. Had a great talk with Coach Dawson after the (Florida) game. We just wanted to go out and just play our game and play free. I think I played pretty free tonight.”UK defense boosted by linebackers’ returnTowles completed just 51.7 percent of his passes in the season’s first three games while throwing four interceptions with three touchdowns.He wasted no time turning those numbers around against Missouri, completing 14 of 15 passes for 120 yards in the first half.“It just takes time,” UK offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson said. “I knew eventually it would click. I didn’t know if it would click tonight or not — this could have been a completely different press conference — but I knew eventually it would.”At one point in the game Towles connected on 11 consecutive passes before a drop in the third quarter.He led Kentucky on touchdown drives of 71, 75 and 93 yards.“I thought he played extremely consistent,” Dawson said. “No turnovers. We were good on third downs, mainly because of him. When things broke down, he used his feet. Everything we want him to do that we knew eventually he’d do if (he had) overall comfort level.”After Missouri took a 10-7 lead in the third quarter, Towles completed 8 of 9 passes for 129 yards and two touchdowns on Kentucky’s final four drives.On the 93-yard touchdown drive that stretched the Kentucky lead to two scores, Towles completed all five pass attempts for 95 yards and one touchdown.“I felt that this week of practice and just leading up to this game, he was way more comfortable in his own skin for whatever reason,” Dawson said. “So I think part of it is just staying the course. That’s what people don’t understand, you’ve got to stay the course. Stay the course and things are typically going to work out.”Dawson told players and reporters before the game he thought the team tried too hard against Florida. He emphasized playing looser throughout the week.Towles took that lesson to heart.“Last week we were definitely a little tight,” Towles said. “Kind of probably wanted the game a little too much. He just said go out and play free and we’ll let the chips fall where they may. I just tried to act like it was a Friday night in Fort Thomas playing high school football out there, and it was a lot of fun.”Email Jon Hale at jahale@courier-journal.com .

Auburn likes new-look Jeremy Johnson

So I think he’s in a good spot right now.”Lashlee said Sunday that Johnson graded out the best he had all season in the film session review and added that the 6-foot-5 junior “didn’t make one bad decision the whole game”.“That says a lot about where he’s come and (Idaho) gave us a bunch of different looks,” Lashlee said. “They were doing a bunch of different things and blitzing different ways to try to stop things and he made some good decisions, whether it be the run or the pass game, every time.”Auburn Tigers quarterback Jeremy Johnson (6) greets Aubie after Auburn Tigers defeated Idaho 56-34 on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala. Albert Cesare / AdvertiserAuburn Tigers quarterback Jeremy Johnson (6) greets Aubie after Auburn Tigers defeated Idaho 56-34 on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala. Albert Cesare / AdvertiserIn a 56-34 victory over one of the nation’s weakest defenses, Lashlee said Sunday it was Johnson’s reaction of the missed throws he had down the field. In the early part of the season, before Johnson was benched in favor of redshirt freshman Sean White, the Montgomery native looked confused and afraid to go down the field after throwing five interceptions in the first two weeks of play.Johnson completed nine passes of 10 yards or more Saturday against Idaho and didn’t commit a single turnover.“The thing I like the most yesterday is, and there were a couple we missed we should have hit, he just had a calm confidence about him, just the way he went about the day and the way he played,” Lashlee said.Auburn Tigers quarterback Jeremy Johnson (6) runs downfield as Idaho defensive back Jordan Grabski (21) chases him during the NCAA football game between Auburn and Idaho on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala. Albert Cesare / AdvertiserAuburn Tigers quarterback Jeremy Johnson (6) runs downfield as Idaho defensive back Jordan Grabski (21) chases him during the NCAA football game between Auburn and Idaho on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala. Albert Cesare / AdvertiserIn his last three starts, Johnson had only thrown one interception and Auburn seemed more willing to challenge Idaho’s defense down the field this past weekend. Alabama (10-1, 6-1 in Southeastern Conference) will come to Jordan-Hare Stadium leading the SEC with 15 interceptions this season.“I was really impressed with Jeremy today,” Auburn center Devonte Danzey said after the game Saturday. “He just had that confident look back and it something we’d seen in practice but he seemed to have control of everything from the start.”Auburn (6-5, 2-5 in Southeastern Conference) will need its best game from the quarterback position but Lashlee said Sunday “we know we’re going to probably need both of those guys” when describing the situation with Johnson and redshirt freshman Sean White.White didn’t play Saturday vs. Idaho and has been limited in practice since injuring his left knee at Arkansas. White was told two weeks ago he and Johnson would both play against Georgia but White was ineffective in the third quarter of the 20-13 loss to the Bulldogs.“That’s something Coach (Malzahn) will probably address more on Tuesday,” Lashlee said. “At this point, we’re just in the early stages of putting a game plan together, so I don’t know what we’re going to do yet.”Auburn Tigers quarterback Jeremy Johnson (6) points towards the ROTC section after scoring a touchdown during the NCAA football game between Auburn and Idaho on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala.

Boston Uprising finds headphone sponsor in Bose

first_imgOne of the twelve founding Overwatch League franchises, Boston Uprising has acquired a headphone sponsor in the form of Bose.The headphone brand has partnered with other franchises owned by the Kraft Group – the group that owns the Boston Uprising – in the past.While the news hasn’t been announced on social media as of writing, it has been reported that a deal between the two parties was announced at the Octagon Sports Marketing Symposium.Jennifer Ferron, CMO of Kraft Sports & Entertainment reportedly said the following about the partnership: “They’re a great company. They’ve done a lot with the Kraft Group for a number of years now. They want to be in this space making headwear and headsets that gamers can use, so this gives us an opportunity to help them develop that.”In April of this year, it was announced that Boston Uprising had entered a partnership with men’s grooming brand Gillette. It became the exclusive shaving product for all members of the franchise.The Overwatch League isn’t in its second season yet but a number of high-profile sponsors and partners have gotten involved with teams and the league itself. Besides Bose and Gillette, these companies include Spotify, Twitter, Disney, Lionsgate, T-Mobile, and Logitech, among others.Esports Insider says: This is yet another big non-endemic company investing in esports in some form, which is yet another great sign for the industry. It shows that there’s an audience that suits sponsors such as Bose, and frankly we’re surprised it’s taken so long for a headphone company of this stature to get involved.Subscribe to ESI on YouTubelast_img read more

Steelers name Ray Sherman interim wide receivers coach

first_imgThe Steelers have appointed Ray Sherman as interim wide receivers coach for the upcoming season.The move comes in the wake of the unexpected death of former wide receivers coach Darryl Drake earlier this month. ‘Dancing with the Stars’ 2019: Ray Lewis, Lamar Odom among cast We have named Ray Sherman interim wide receivers coach for the 2019 season.MORE: https://t.co/Xf7v0DOXJB pic.twitter.com/XjlHlnw2bx— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) August 22, 2019Drake, who was 62, was in his second season with the Steelers after previously serving as the wide receivers coach for the Bears from 2004-12 and the Cardinals from 2013-17.While third-year receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster took Drake’s passing particularly hard, he commended Sherman for quickly connecting with the players. Related News “To go through this at a young age, 22 years old, there are no words that can explain what we are going through. For Ray, he was retired, for him to come out of his way to be here it means a lot not only to myself but to the receivers in the room. We don’t want to change that.”Sherman, 67, hasn’t coached since he retired following the 2015 season, but brings plenty of experience to the table for his second stint in Pittsburgh after previously serving as offensive coordinator in 1998.He spent 14 years coaching in college football before transitioning to the NFL in 1988 as the running backs coach with the Houston Oilers. He also spent time with the Falcons, 49ers, Jets, Vikings, Packers, Titans, Cowboys and Rams. “A guy who has been here,” Smith-Schuster said in a release from the Steelers. “He has coached everybody from Jerry Rice to young guys like us. It’s the best opportunity to have him step up and play that role for us. Also, Blaine (Stewart) is doing a great job. It just takes all of us together. We are in this together.
