Aliy Zirkle Finished Iditarod in #3

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Two Rivers musher Aliy Zirkle has finished the 2016 Iditarod in 3rd place, with a time of 8d 18h 42m 36s. Zirkle rounds out the top three, finishing behind Dallas ad Mitch Seavey. She arrived in Nome at 9:42am today (Tuesday), which is virtually the same time Dallas finished last year. Zirkle completed the 1,000 mile race with 13 dogs on the string. She’s finished in the top ten every year since 2012, coming in second to a Seavey from 2012-2014. Zirkle was one of two mushers struck by a drunk snow machiner on the path to Nulato earlier in the race. She said the accident was tough mentally, especially as it was originally suspected to be an attack. The rider turned himself in to law enforcement and is facing a dozen criminal charges.

Florida lineman Rod Johnson has career-ending spine issue

first_imgGAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida offensive tackle Rod Johnson has plans for a new tattoo, one to mark his final day as a football player.Johnson, who had been expected to start for the Gators this fall, instead ended his career Tuesday because of a spine problem.The team released a statement saying Johnson has been diagnosed with congenital cervical stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal that prevents enough fluid to gather around the spinal cord. The fluid protects the spinal cord from injury.”Just heartbreaking news on Rod,” Gators coach Jim McElwain said before a speaking engagement Tuesday evening. “It was one of those deals that we wanted to make sure that we got as many opinions as possible to make sure. Just feel horrible for him, and yet at the same time, a blessing that it was kind of discovered through what we kind of thought was probably a stinger.”Johnson experienced numbness in his fingers and hands after he was injured April 3 during a scrimmage. McElwain initially called it a stinger but later said it could be career-threatening. Johnson sat out the final week of practice along with Saturday’s spring game.Johnson posted on his Twitter page Tuesday that he wants a tattoo to remember his final playing day, saying “4/3/15 will tat it on me my last play in the swamp saw that white light when I went down and I stood and walk off the field with pride.”The 6-foot-6, 296-pound Johnson underwent several tests, and Florida’s medical team consulted with specialists before recommending he retire from football.McElwain made it clear Saturday that Johnson’s future was in doubt and he didn’t want to risk further injury.”One thing I’ll tell you this about any player: I will never, ever put him out there in harm’s way,” McElwain said after the spring game. “Life’s too short, man. Ain’t gonna do it. Ain’t gonna do it to a young guy.”Johnson, a third-year sophomore from Delray Beach, made his first career start last season against Kentucky and started two more games.Without him, the Gators have just six healthy scholarship linemen heading into fall camp. Six freshmen offensive linemen are headed to Gainesville this summer, including five-star recruit Martez Ivey, but none of them is sure to help right away.McElwain said Johnson will remain with the program to help with the younger guys.”We’re kind of going through the different things we need to do right now, but I look forward to him being a great influence on these young guys that are coming in,” McElwain said Tuesday. “As they get here this summer, I’ll put him in charge and he’ll work almost as a coach, as a student assistant moving forward. Look forward to him being with us as he continues to get his degree and move forward into that part of his life.”last_img read more

Packers don’t take any receivers in surprise draft move

first_img Associated Press Television News Last Updated: 26th April, 2020 10:30 IST Packers Don’t Take Any Receivers In Surprise Draft Move The Green Bay Packers acquired Aaron Rodgers’ potential successor but didn’t give their star quarterback any new wide receivers. FOLLOW US LIVE TV COMMENT First Published: 26th April, 2020 10:30 ISTcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE Written By The Green Bay Packers acquired Aaron Rodgers’ potential successor but didn’t give their star quarterback any new wide receivers.In a draft heralded for its receiving depth, the Packers opted against taking a single player at a position that was widelyThe Packers traded up four spots in the first round“We felt (the receiver class) was really strong at the top,” general manager Brian Gutekunst said. “I don’t know as we went through the middle and the end, that we felt it was as strong as maybe others did.“I thought the top was one of the stronger drafts at the wide receiver class that I can remember, but the runs went pretty early, and once we got to a certain spot, with the group that we had coming back, it wasn’t like we weren’t looking to add to that competition. We just felt there weren’t a lot of great candidates that were locks to make our team next year.’’Davante Adams is the only Packer who caught as many as 50 passes or accumulated as many as 500 yards receiving last season. The Packers’ biggest offseason addition to their receiving corps is“I do think we have talent and depth at that position,” coach Matt LaFleur said.The lack of receivers was perhaps the biggest surprise of a draft in which the Packers focused on solving potential long-term issues. How much a team that finished a game short of the Super Bowl last season improved its 2020 fortunes is up for debate.The Packers used their first-round pick on Love, who will likely spend his first couple of seasons backing up Rodgers. They draftedGreen Bay added Cincinnati tight end Josiah Deguara in the third round and Minnesota linebacker Kamal Martin in the fifth round. The Packers selected three offensive linemen in the sixth round by taking Michigan guard/tackle Jon Runyan Jr., Oregon center Jake Hanson and Indiana guard Simon Stepaniak. They chose TCU safety Vernon Scott and Miami defensive end Jonathan Garvin in the seventh round.QB QUESTIONSThe success of this draft likely will depend on whether Love eventually develops into the kind of player who can continue Green Bay’s three-decade run of quality quarterback play.His arrival already has produced plenty of speculation regarding how much longer Rodgers will stay in Green Bay, no matter how much the Packers attempt to downplay that.“We have one of the best quarterbacks to ever lace them up,” Gutekunst said. “We’re shooting for championships as long as (Rodgers is) here, and we expect him to be here for quite a while.”EMPHASIZING THE RUN?Green Bay’s draft strategy suggests the Packers may adopt a run-oriented approach, though Gutekunst cautioned against reading too much into that.“I don’t really think any of the personnel acquisitions that we made over the last three days were an attempt to kind of transition to that,” Gutekunst said. “They were the right players at the right time.”The Packers will have solid depth at running back with Dillon joining Jones and Jamaal Williams, who both could become free agents next year. Deguara also can help the running game with his ability to play fullback and H-back.FAMILY TIESRunyan is the son of former NFL offensive tackle Jon Runyan, who played from 1996-2009 before serving two terms as a Republican congressman from New Jersey. The elder Runyan now is the NFL’s vice president of policy and rules administration.Runyan said he’d take a lesson he received from his dad to heart while trying to “kind of be that nasty guy on the field that gets in everybody’s heads.”“I remember one time in eighth grade, my dad caught me patting some defensive player on the back after he made a good hit, and (my dad) gave me a stern talking-to after that game and told me never to do that again,” Runyan said. “That kind of changed my whole perspective on how to play the game.”RECOVERING FROM INJURYStepaniak tore his anterior cruciate ligament during a practice before the Gator Bowl but said he is progressing well and hopes to be ready for the start of training camp.Martin, who played eight games for Minnesota last season due to a knee injury, said he’s “way ahead of where I’m supposed to be” in his recovery and that the situation shouldn’t cause any issues.WAITING ON DEFENSEThis marked the first time since 1985 that the Packers waited until the fifth round before taking a defensive player. The Packers selected Arizona State linebacker Brian Noble in the fifth round at No. 125 overall that year.last_img read more

Utah Utes basketball: Rebels run right past Utes

first_imgLAS VEGAS — The third time was not so charming for the Utah basketball team.After beating UNLV twice during the regular season, the Utes had no answer for a determined Rebel squad and lost 73-61 in the first round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament Friday night at the Thomas and Mack Center.The defeat brought Utah’s topsy-turvy season to a merciful close as the Utes finished with a 14-17 record, only their third losing season in the past 20 years and the first since going 11-19 in 2006-07.UNLV, considered a lock for the NCAA tournament despite the two earlier losses to the Utes, improved to 24-7 on the season and will play BYU tonight in the semifinals at 9:30 p.m. MST.The Utes were trying to become the sixth straight No. 6 seed to win in the first round of the MWC tourney, but after pulling within one point early in the second half, they watched the Rebels went on a 32-13 run to put the game away.Tre’Von WIllis and Anthony Marshall led a balanced UNLV scoring attack with 13 points, while Chace Stanback had 10.For the Utes, Carlon Brown led the way with 12 points, while Luka Drca scored 11.After pulling within four points with a late rally in the first half, the Utes came out and quickly cut the margin to one on a three-point play by Brown. But the Rebels ran off 10 straight points to push the lead to 41-30 with 16:23 left and the rout was on.The UNLV lead got as high as 21 points at 66-45, before the Ute reserves cut the lead in the final minutes.The first half was similar to numerous Ute games this season as they fell behind by double digits only to rally and make a game of it when they looked dead and buried.The Utes overcame a couple of 13-point first-half deficits to pull within four at 29-25 at halftime, despite shooting just 30 percent from the field.David Foster, who sprained his ankle eight days earlier in a game against BYU, was deemed healthy enough to start, but less than three minutes into the game he fell to the court and limped off and into the locker room for treatment. He returned a few minutes later and promptly made four points to tie the game at 8.That’s when the Rebels went on a 10-0 run in less than three minutes as the pro-UNLV crowd started their “Re-bels, Re-bels” chant. A 3-pointer by Willis made it 21-8 before the Utes broke a six-minute scoring drought with a 3-pointer by Brown.Then in the last three minutes of the half, the Utes scored nine straight points on threes by Drca, Marshall Henderson and Chris Hines to cut the lead to 28-25 before Anthony Marshall sank a late free throw.GAME NOTES: UNLV’s win tied the all-time series with the Utes at 22-22 … Luka Drca had a tough night in his final game for the Utes with six turnovers … The Utes had lost four straight tournament games to the Rebels in the Thomas & Mack Center, including a 61-55 loss two years in the semifinals. The Utes had beaten the Rebels twice in the MWC Tournament when it was held in Denver in 2004 and 2005. Kim Tillie, who sprained his ankle in practice a week ago, was able to play in the game and had three points and three rebounds in his final game as a Ute … Foster had six points and five rebounds in 19 minutes … Every Ute player who suited up, played, except Jordan Cyphers, who didn’t play for the 12th straight game … Since losing to Utah on Feb. 17, the Rebels had reeled off four straight victories by an average margin of 75-51 … Earlier this year, the Utes beat the Rebels 73-69 in Las Vegas and 66-61 in Salt Lake City.Today’s MWC scheduleNo. 1 New Mexico vs. No. 4 San Diego St., 7 p.m.No. 2 BYU vs. No. 3 UNLV, 9:30 p.m.More hoop inside Utah, BYU women look to stay alive in MWC tournament, D2 Aggies beat Boise State, face Bulldogs in WAC semifinals, D4e-mail: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more
