Marshfield girls soccer falls short at Ashwaubenon

Philip Rivers Has The Supporting Cast He Deserves Again

Conventional NFL wisdom says teams should do whatever it takes to snag a Franchise Quarterback™ — that from there, the winning just takes care of itself. But for most of Philip Rivers’s career, his Los Angeles (née San Diego) Chargers have been the exception to that rule. Taken fourth overall in the 2004 draft, Rivers has been the elite passer that teams dream about building around. And yet, his team has just four total playoff wins to show for it, including only one this decade.This year, though, Los Angeles looks poised to reverse that trend and actually capitalize on having a future Hall of Fame QB in its midst, while there’s still time left in Rivers’s career to do it. The Chargers walloped the Browns 38-14 in Cleveland last Sunday, bringing their record to 4-2 on the season — and giving them a 61 percent probability of making their first playoff appearance since 2013. Although L.A.’s postseason bid is far from assured, right now the Chargers have set themselves up with their most promising start to a season in a long time.This Charger renaissance has been building for a few years, since the team finally began surrounding Rivers again with better playmakers on both sides of the ball. On defense, that goes back to 2012, when former general manager A.J. Smith drafted pass-rusher Melvin Ingram 18th overall. After a slow start to his career, Ingram has blossomed into a Pro Bowler and an annual double-digit sack candidate. Under Smith’s successor, Tom Telesco, the Chargers have also grabbed several defensive contributors through the draft, including sack-machine DE Joey Bosa,1Who has missed the season so far with an injury but made the Pro Bowl last year. solid LB Denzel Perryman, up-and-coming CB Desmond King II and rookie S Derwin James (who, in his first season, already ranks as the NFL’s fifth-best safety according to ProFootballFocus’s player grades). Toss in outside pickups such as DT Brandon Mebane and CB Casey Hayward — another Pro Bowler from last season — plus the guidance of proven coordinator Gus Bradley, and the Chargers’ defensive talent base has undeniably made strides over the past handful of seasons.On offense, Telesco also made key acquisitions that helped pave the way for this year’s hot start when he took WR Keenan Allen in the third round of the 2013 draft and RB Melvin Gordon 15th overall in 2015. Picking first-round running backs is always tricky business, but Gordon has been a good one so far in his career, with a couple of 1,400-yards-from-scrimmage seasons under his belt (in 2016 and 2017) and an excellent start to 2018 as well. Meanwhile, Allen has taken the lead from top San Diego-era targets Malcom Floyd and Antonio Gates and forged his own chemistry with Rivers — only four receivers leaguewide have more yards through the air since 2017 than Allen does. (It also helps that Allen has stayed healthy these past two seasons after missing 23 combined games in 2015-16.) Allen and Gordon aren’t the only teammates making Rivers’s life easier: The offensive line has been much better with free-agent C Mike Pouncey anchoring the middle, while change-of-pace RB Austin Ekeler has proven himself exceptionally tough to bring down — he leads all RBs in yards after first contact per rush. More broadly, in its second year under head coach Anthony Lynn, Los Angeles now has the offensive pieces to beat teams in multiple ways.Add it all up and it’s clear that Rivers, who turns 37 in December, has a much better group of talent around him to work with than in years past. Here’s a look at the changes in Rivers’s own production over time — as measured by his Yards Above Backup Quarterback (YABQ) — along with how his top skill-position teammates and defense have also evolved: TEN53BAL54BAL 21, TEN 0+4.8– SEA67SEA63SEA 27, OAK 3-4.4– 200726.4L.

Gordon88.5T. Williams66.251.1 For the Chargers, it’s part of a long road trip that will keep them away from Southern California until Nov. 18. The StubHub Center doesn’t exactly offer an intimidating advantage even when they are at home, but it does bear watching how L.A. manages all that travel. Even so, the Chargers’ season will still probably hinge on the final few matchups of the season — their last five games are either against division rivals or the biggest threats to their wild-card chances. If Rivers and his improved supporting cast can continue to thrive up to and including the month of December, we’ll know the Chargers have stamped their ticket back to the postseason and given their star QB at least one more chance to shine on the game’s brightest stage.FiveThirtyEight vs. the readersAttention football fans! Be sure to check out our constantly updating NFL prediction interactive, which uses FiveThirtyEight’s Elo ratings to forecast the rest of the season. And if you think you can outsmart Elo, step right up to our prediction game, which lets you pick against our model (and your fellow readers) for bragging rights and a place on our giant leaderboard.Here are the games where Elo made its best — and worst — predictions against the field of prognosticators last week: It probably isn’t a coincidence that Rivers is currently enjoying his best statistical performance in years, with Gordon and Allen also contributing more than any Charger rusher and receiver since the days of LaDainian Tomlinson and Vincent Jackson. It’s a little circular, in that sense: Is Rivers making them better, or are they helping Rivers rediscover his form? (Gordon’s ability to run against stacked defenses, for instance, has opened up space for Rivers to throw downfield.) Either way, the ingredients have been in place for a late-career QB rejuvenation. Right now, Rivers is on pace to tie for the ninth-most-efficient post-merger performance for a passer age 35 or older, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com’s advanced passing index. As far as old-man QB seasons go, this is one of the best in history.Of course, with the Chargers, it’s about more than just improved talent. It’s also about execution, something this team has often been found sorely lacking over the years. As Mike Tanier wrote in his L.A. chapter for Football Outsiders’ 2018 Almanac, you could make a pretty convincing case that the 2017 Chargers missed the playoffs because of two very fundamental football activities: tackling and kicking. Last year, Los Angeles let opponents break tackles at an incredible rate and missed numerous field goals and extra points, helping to turn a team with 10-and-a-half-win point differential into a sad-sack nine-game-winner.This year’s place-kicking game hasn’t been great (Caleb Sturgis made just 71 percent of his total field goals and extra points before he was sidelined by an injury), but it’s no longer dead-last in football, which I suppose is an accomplishment. Plus, the Chargers rank among the best in the league in terms of kickoffs, a big reason for their fourth-ranked net starting field position. And as for the tackling woes, they appear to be a thing of the past. According to Football Outsiders’ charting data, only 3.9 percent of plays by Charger opponents have seen a broken tackle, good for 10th best in the league this year. Relatedly, the Chargers are also allowing the league’s sixth-lowest rate of yards after first contact per rush this season, another major sign of defensive progress as compared with last season. 201379.6R. Mathews90.3K. Allen65.432.2 What’s been a great season for Elo kept getting better in Week 6 as the algorithm beat the average reader by 55 points, its second-best showing of the entire year so far. Human predictors really only had one major feather in their cap — Houston’s Nathan Peterman-fueled win over Buffalo (a very bad team whose badness Elo refuses to acknowledge) — but otherwise they saw Elo run roughshod over their picks. Elo correctly called wins for Dallas and Miami when readers picked otherwise, and it had a lot more confidence than readers in the Jets’ and Chargers’ victories as well. All told, the average reader is now down 233 points to Elo for the season to date.Among the readers who weren’t destroyed by Elo, congrats to John D. Harden, who led all users with 275 points in Week 6, and to Jevon Mallett, who continues to lead all users for the season with 453 points. Thanks to everyone who played last week — and if you didn’t play, get in on the game already! You can make picks now and still try your luck against Elo, even if you haven’t played yet.Check out our latest NFL predictions.

Ohio State womens basketball loses close game vs No 3 Notre Dame

OSU Sophomore Guard Ameryst Alston (14) during a game against UConn on Nov. 16. OSU lost 100-56. Credit: Ian Bailey | Lantern ReporterOhio State women’s basketball coach Kevin McGuff’s attitude of challenging his team with elite opponents, allowing his players to learn and grow from the experience, cannot be questioned.For the third time in seven games, the Buckeyes battled a top-three-ranked adversary and participant in last season’s Final Four. McGuff’s team fell to No. 2 South Carolina 88-80 in the season opener and lost to No. 1 Connecticut 100-56 three days later.The latest game, against No. 3 Notre Dame, allowed OSU a third and final opportunity to take down one of the elite teams before conference play begins.But the Buckeyes could not hang on down the stretch as Notre Dame (7-0) pulled ahead late and handed No. 10 Ohio State (4-3) its closest loss of the season, beating the Scarlet and Gray 75-72 Wednesday evening in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge.OSU sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell, who led the Buckeyes in scoring with 27 points on 9-of-19 shooting, missed a deep 3-pointer as time ran out which would have sent the game into overtime. The fierce competitor played the entire game, all 40 minutes, not once subbing out.“We wanted to get her off a ball screen, she came off one, we were going to maybe set another and she got a good look at it. But it didn’t go down,” McGuff said of the final play.Mitchell’s backcourt scoring partner, senior guard Ameryst Alston, struggled to find a groove in a sloppy first half by both teams, but improved in the second half as 11 of her 13 points came after halftime. She fouled out late, but not before her layup tied the game at 72 with 37 seconds remaining.Turnovers from both teams were responsible for the ugly first half. Of OSU’s 20 turnovers, 12 came in the first 20 minutes of the game. Notre Dame committed 18 turnovers, nine occurring in the first half.The Buckeyes scored 24 points off turnovers compared to the Fighting Irish’s 19, a discrepancy due to the fact that OSU coughed the ball over more.. McGuff noted turnovers, along with rebounding, as the biggest struggle for the Buckeyes.Notre Dame, missing starting sophomore forward Brianna Turner and junior forward Taya Reimer due to injuries, relied on volume shooting and offensive rebounding to dispose of the Buckeyes.“They’re still a great team. They were really well prepared tonight. They played hard, they executed really well on offense,” McGuff said about Notre Dame.Redshirt senior guard Madison Cable paced the Fighting Irish with 25 points and, despite standing just 5-foot-10, she corralled 11 rebounds. Her teammate, junior guard Lindsay Allen added 20 points, six rebounds and five assists.Entering Wednesday’s game, the Notre Dame connected on 45.2 percent of their 3-point attempts. However, the Fighting Irish attempted a whopping 24 threes, twice as many as OSU, but made just seven.The home team made up for the poor shooting night by cleaning up the offensive glass, grabbing 19 offensive rebounds.Defensive rebounding remains an issue for OSU.“I thought that was the difference in the game,” McGuff said about losing the rebounding battle. “They got too many second-chance points.”Only junior forward Shayla Cooper accounted for more than four rebounds, as she grabbed 15 of her team’s 34 rebounds. By the end of the first half, Cooper already posted a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds. She ended up with 18 points.“She was a warrior on the glass and we needed it because they’re a great rebounding team,” McGuff said. “But overall, I thought this is probably her best game.”Through seven games, opponents average 15 offensive rebounds per game against OSU, a staggeringly large number. The Buckeyes have grabbed 15 rebounds just twice all season and only once has the team outrebounded its opposition.“Yeah, we do, we do,” McGuff said when asked about needing to find someone else other than Cooper to help inside. “We need to find a little more around the basket than just her.” read more

Ohio State football names Kerry Coombs special teams coordinator

Ohio State did not have a special teams coordinator in Urban Meyer’s first season as coach, but it will next season. OSU announced Friday that Kerry Coombs, who is also the team’s cornerbacks coach, has been promoted to special teams coordinator.“Kerry Coombs is an excellent coach who has a great deal of experience and expertise with special teams,” Meyer said in a press release. “He is an outstanding teacher, an excellent motivator and he has a true passion for special teams.”Before joining Meyer’s staff as cornerbacks coach last May, Coombs was the special teams coordinator at Cincinnati from 2009-2011, and was their defensive backs coach from 2007-2011. Prior to Cincinnati, Coombs coached from 1983-2006 within the state of Ohio at the high school level.“I am incredibly excited and honored to be given the responsibility of special teams coordinator,” Coombs said in a press release. “The special teams have always been a part of the game that I have enjoyed coaching. These plays are so critical to the success of a team, and they can really swing momentum. I look forward to having an increased role in the development of them.”Coombs will continue to coach OSU’s cornerbacks in addition to his new role.Without a special teams coordinator last season, the Buckeyes blocked three extra points, two punts and a field goal, but also had three punts blocked.The Buckeyes scored two punt return touchdowns and one touchdown off punt blocks last season, but gave up four special teams touchdowns (two punt returns, one kickoff return, one blocked punt). read more

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Brandon Saad poses with team president John Davidson at his introductory press conference on July 15. Credit: Courtesy of bluejackets.comIn Columbus, the only sad thing that is going on is the rain. Everything else seems to being going great. The Buckeyes are national champions, the Crew are in second place in the Eastern Conference and the Blue Jackets just made a trade that could vault them into the elite class of the NHL.On June 30, the Jackets traded for left wing Brandon Saad from the Chicago Blackhawks for Marko Dano, Artem Anisimov, Jeremy Morin, Corey Tropp and a fourth-round draft pick in next year’s draft and subsequently signed him to a six-year deal. The Jackets also received two players from the minors with Saad.Looking back at last season, most hockey fans would consider the Jackets’ year very unlucky. They had a ton of injuries to deal with, constantly having to change the lines with new bodies, and had to focus on making their younger players better. The Jackets fought through all this adversity and finished strong by winning 12 of their last 13 games while only missing the playoffs by nine points (four and a half games). The NHL took notice, and teams were likely hoping, maybe even praying, those pesky Jackets would find their way on the outside of the postseason with the way they were playing. They were one of the hottest teams going down the stretch. Even with no postseason, the Jackets still have found something that they are not used to receiving year in and year out: respect.Now other teams have seen that the Jackets are growing with the last three seasons of making strong bids for the playoffs (making it once when they lost to Pittsburgh in six games in 2014 first round). With their new wing Saad put into the mix, the Blue Jackets are starting to look like a division contender with the likes of the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals. Perhaps they even resemble potential Stanley Cup winners.Who is Brandon Saad, though? He is only a 22-year-old who has been with the Chicago Blackhawks for four years and won two Stanley Cups. He posted 126 points in that time period with 52 of those being goals, 23 of which came just last season. If that doesn’t get you thinking about the line possibilities, take this in: Last postseason he helped the Blackhawks get their third Stanley Cup in six years by posting eight goals, three assists and 56 shots. While playing in the Stanley Cup Finals, he had two goals, one assist and a go-ahead goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning during Game 4. For being only 22, he has a veteran-like resume.Saad did not come cheaply, as they had to surrender strong talents Artem Anisimov and Marko Dano. Those two were the main focus in this trade, as the Blackhawks have been trying for last couple of seasons to get Anisimov from the Jackets, which showed when they signed him to a five-year extension after the trade. Dano looks like a young star in the near future, and he could end up being the balancing force in this trade to see who really got the better end of the stick.This move overall will make the Jackets better on offense and defense. Saad was one of the better Blackhawks penalty killers, as well as a good power play guy. Personally, I love the move by the Jackets because it shows that the team is moving forward and is ready to take the next step in the quest to bring the cup to Columbus.Having him on a line with Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno, potentially, makes my mouth water at what they could do together. Last season, Foligno was the Jackets’ leader in goals and second in assists, while Johansen was third in goals and first in assists. That brings me back to the line possibilities; think about the other three offensive lines you need.The Jackets still have Brandon Dubinsky, Boone Jenner, Alex Wennberg, Scott Hartnell, Matt Calvert, Cam Atkinson and others to give a boost after that lethal first line. Possibilities are far from limited with this team. Now that the Jackets have a dependable first line, they can try to find some rhythm with the other lines. The best part — if there is a better part — is the Jackets have almost all those guys under contracts for several seasons to come.These Jackets have been slowly moving forward ever since they missed the playoffs by a tiebreaker with the Minnesota Wild in the 2012-13 season. This year, the Jackets will look to obtain a division title for the first time in franchise history, get further than the first round of the playoffs and, dare I say, bring a Stanley Cup to Columbus for the first time. read more
