Gridiron: Next in line shine under spotlight

first_imgDivision-I college football programs lose their best players to graduation and the NFL Draft every year. What separates the good programs from the great programs is their ability to recruit and recycle talent, so that when it’s time for their marquee players to go get paid, the programs have sufficient replacements waiting and ready to go.Take USC for example. A quick look at the recent quarterback lineage shows two Heisman Trophy winners — Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart — and current starter and Heisman candidate John David Booty. When teams can recruit a string of talent at multiple positions, they have set up a path toward repeated success.This year is no exception to the rule. Four current top 10 teams lost offensive playmakers to the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft. Without replacements for those players waiting on deck, these programs would not stand where they do today.Ohio State WR/PR Brian Robiskie (Ted Ginn Jr.)Last year Ted Ginn Jr. was arguably the most dynamic player in the nation, which is why the Miami Dolphins selected him with the ninth overall pick. He burned Big Ten cornerbacks on a consistent basis and returned kicks, including his touchdown against Florida on the opening kickoff of the BCS National Championship Game. With the loss of Ohio State’s other starting wide receiver, Anthony Gonzalez, to the Indianapolis Colts, the Buckeyes needed someone to step up in a big way this season.Junior wideout Brian Robiskie has done just that, settling in nicely as the Buckeyes’ No. 1 receiver and punt returner. After three games, the Cleveland, Ohio, native ranks 11th in the nation in receiving yards with 342 and 28th in the country with an average of 20.1 yards per catch.Robiskie is on pace for a 1,368-yard, eight-touchdown season, which would be a dramatic improvement from 383 yards and five touchdowns in 2006.He has also been a main reason why Ohio State has jumped to No. 8 in the AP poll, and he will be a key ingredient in the Buckeyes’ success for the rest of this season.California RB Justin Forsett (Marshawn Lynch)Despite backing up the Buffalo Bills’ first-round draft pick Marshawn Lynch last season, senior running back Justin Forsett was able to steal 626 yards on 119 carries. So far this season, Forsett is making fans in Berkeley forget quickly about Lynch, exceeding expectations as the Golden Bears’ feature back. Forsett currently ranks 14th in the nation in rushing with 367 yards on 62 rushes, for an average of 5.9 yards per carry.Players’ numbers this early in the season are often misleading because many teams have yet to play top-quality opponents. However, Forsett’s best performance thus far came in Week 1 against then-ranked Tennessee, when he rushed for 156 yards on 26 carries (6.0 avg.) and a touchdown, not to mention a 49-yard reception out of the backfield.With Forsett carrying the ball and DeSean Jackson catching passes and returning kicks, expect Cal to make some serious noise in the Pac-10 this season.LSU QBs Ryan Perrilloux and Matt Flynn (Jamarcus JaMarcus Russell)After being selected No. 1 overall, JaMarcus Russell’s shoes may have been the biggest to fill in college football. Added pressure was applied to senior quarterback Matt Flynn because the Tigers were picked by many to square off against USC in the BCS National Championship Game this season. That hasn’t meant a thing to Flynn, who led the Tigers to a 45-0 slaughtering of Mississippi State in his first start of the season.When Flynn got banged up in Week 2 against Virginia Tech, in stepped sophomore quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who modestly went 5-for-5 for 84 yards and two touchdowns in the 48-7 rout. His encore performance was much of the same. With Flynn still ailing on the bench, Perrilloux threw for 298 yards and three scores.The only problem lingering in Baton Rouge is who will start when Flynn gets healthy, because both he and Perrilloux seem fully capable of leading this high-powered attack.Oklahoma RB DeMarco Murray (Adrian Peterson)It’s tough enough for freshmen to adjust to the speed and size of the college game. Succeeding Adrian Peterson — the first running back taken in the NFL Draft (Minnesota Vikings) –should make it a bit tougher. Neither element has fazed DeMarco Murray, who is currently averaging seven yards per carry (which ranks him 24th in the nation in that category) for the surging Sooners. Murray has had limited touches thus far, due to Oklahoma’s 52.7-point average margin of victory in its first three games, which should keep him fresh in his freshman campaign. Despite the lack of carries, Murray has shined when he has touched the ball. He has six touchdowns, including a 92-yarder last week against Utah State. Because he hasn’t had more than 17 carries in a game yet, look for Murray to be fresh for when the Sooners actually need him to carry a heavy load, because this kid can flat-out run the football.last_img read more

first_imgMichael at his new sports store in Letterkenny adds his signature to the back of Danny O’Carroll’s Dublin jerseyPICTURE EXCLUSIVE: BUSTER doesn’t know which way to turn…..He’s a Dub in Donegal – and the only Dub in the village of Manorcunningham.But to be fair actor Danny O’Carroll, ‘Buster’ in Mrs Brown’s Boys, says a part of him will be very happy if Donegal do beat Dublin at Croke Park on Sunday. Not least because his wife Amanda, who plays ‘Betty Brown’ in the comedy series, is a good Donegal woman.Both got new jerseys in time for the big clash on Sunday; and both will be heading to The Orchard Bar in Letterkenny to soak up the atmosphere.Just to make sure that Danny gets some protection however there is a very special signature on the back of his new Dublin top.And here is Brian McDaid’s picture showing how that happened….Donegal captain Michael Murphy signing his first ever Dublin top at Michael Murphy Sports store in Letterkenny. Amanda and Danny were in Manorcunningham yesterday showing off their special shirts.And they popped into the Irish Wheelchair Association’s premises in the village to say a big ‘hello’ to the people there.Needless to say there was lots of banter and craic.“I’m backing Dublin to win,” Danny told them.“But I’m a big fan of Michael Murphy and Donegal; I’d be very happy and proud if they win on Sunday.” Murphy meanwhile told us he was only too happy to sign Danny’s Dublin jersey.“That’s definitely a first,” he laughed.Mum of two Amanda has sports star Murphy’s signature on the back of her jersey.“I don’t know what all the fuss is about this Dublin team. Donegal are going to beat them. Simple As!” she insisted.

Border Patrol says 7yearold who died in custody had not appeared ill

first_img KUSI Newsroom, AP, Border Patrol says 7-year-old who died in custody had not appeared ill 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsWASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. immigration officials on Friday defended their actions in the detention of a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl who died two days after she and her father were taken into custody along a remote stretch of the U.S. border.The girl, identified by a Guatemalan official as Jackeline Caal, had gone days without food and water, a Department of Homeland Security statement said. Yet immigration officials said she did not appear to be ill when detained.A Border Patrol form completed shortly after she was stopped said she was not sweating, had no tremors or visible trauma and was mentally alert. “Claims good health,” the form reads. Jackeline’s father appeared to have signed the form, which was obtained by The Associated Press.But, hours later, after Jackeline was placed on a bus, she started vomiting. She was not breathing when she arrived at a Border Patrol station. Emergency medical technicians revived her and she was flown to a hospital in El Paso, Texas, where she was found to have swelling in her brain and liver failure, officials said. She later died.The agents speak Spanish, but the father and daughter were from an area in northern Guatemala called Raxruha in Alta Verapaz and may have spoken a Mayan dialect, not Spanish.An autopsy was scheduled to determine the girl’s death. The results could take weeks.“The agents involved are deeply affected and empathize with the father over the loss of his daughter,” said U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan. “We cannot stress enough the dangers posed by traveling long distances, in crowded transportation, or in the natural elements through remote desert areas without food, water and other supplies.”The girl’s identity was provided to AP by an official with Guatemala’s foreign ministry, who identified the father as 29-year-old Nery Caal. The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to share information. It was later confirmed by Customs and Border Protection officials.Caal was driven to El Paso and was at the hospital when his daughter died, officials said. He is not detained.Jackeline’s death comes as increasing numbers of children and families are making the dangerous trek north from Central America and as immigration officials are being increasingly criticized for their treatment of migrants who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border. Homeland Security’s watchdog will review what happened in the girl’s case, federal officials said.The pair were taken into custody at about 9:15 p.m. Dec. 6 in a group of 163 people in remote New Mexico, about 90 miles from the nearest Border Patrol station in Lordsburg. The group was apprehended by four Border Patrol agents. The rugged, mountainous area is mostly deserted, home to ghost towns and abandoned buildings from Old West homesteader days. It’s an unforgiving terrain where Geronimo made his last stand and it remains largely isolated with no cell service and few paved roads.There’s a small Border Patrol operating base near where the group was found with food, water and bathrooms, but no medical help. They were found near the Antelope Wells port of entry, which was closed when they arrived. It’s not clear if they had been trying to cross legally.The migrants were bused from the area to Lordsburg in two groups, including about 50 minors without parents in the first group, officials said. The girl and her father didn’t start the 90-mile journey until about 4:30 a.m., when the bus returned.The father said the girl was vomiting on the bus. When they arrived at the Border Patrol station in Lordsburg at about 6:30 a.m. Dec. 7, she was not breathing, officials said. Emergency medical technicians discovered the girl’s fever was 105.7 degrees Fahrenheit (40.9 degrees Celsius), and she was airlifted to a hospital. She died shortly after midnight on Dec. 8.White House spokesman Hogan Gidley called Jackeline’s death “a horrific, tragic situation” and called for “commonsense laws to disincentivize people from coming up from the border,” crossing illegally.Guatemalan consular officials said they have spoken with the father who was deeply upset.“It is important to show that, unfortunately, the places where migrants now enter are more dangerous and the distances they travel are greater,” consular officials said.Immigration officials said hundreds of people who have been overcome by the harsh desert and sweltering conditions are saved by Border Patrol every year.When a Border Patrol agent arrests someone, that person is processed at a facility but usually spends no more than 72 hours in custody before either being transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement or, if the person is Mexican, being deported home.Immigrants, attorneys and activists have long raised issues with the conditions of Border Patrol holding cells. In Tucson, Arizona, an ongoing lawsuit claims holding cells are filthy, cold and lacking basic necessities such as blankets. A judge overseeing that lawsuit has ordered the agency’s Tucson Sector, which patrols much of the Arizona-Mexico border, to provide blankets and mats to sleep on and to continually turn over surveillance footage from inside the cells.Agents in Arizona see groups of more than 100 people, sometimes including infants and toddlers, on a regular basis.Arresting such groups poses logistical problems for agents, who have to wait on transport vans that are equipped with baby seats to take the migrants to processing facilities, some which are at least a half-hour north of the border.The death of the 7-year-old comes after a toddler died in May just after being released from an family detention facility in Texas and as President Donald Trump’s administration attempts to ban people from asking for asylum if they cross the border illegally. A federal appeals court has temporarily blocked that ban, but the administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstate it Tuesday.The Washington Post first reported the girl’s story late Thursday.___Galvan reported from Phoenix, and Perez D. from Guatemala City. Associated Press writers Elliot Spagat in San Diego and Russell Contreras in Albuquerque, New Mexico contributed to this report.More info:12:30 p.m.The U.S. Border Patrol says a 7-year-old girl who died while she was in custody appeared to be in good health when she was first detained along a remote stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border.An intake form signed by the girl’s father said she wasn’t sick, wasn’t sweating and seemed mentally alert. The form was obtained by The Associated Press.Immigration officials briefing reporters say the girl’s father told officials that she was sick and vomiting when they were on a bus heading to a Border Patrol station. When they arrived 90 minutes later, the girl wasn’t breathing.Emergency personnel revived her twice, and she was sent to an El Paso hospital via helicopter at 7:40 a.m. She died Dec. 8. An autopsy is pending.___10:45 a.m.An official with Guatemala’s foreign ministry has identified the 7-year-old migrant girl who died in U.S. Border Patrol custody as Jackeline Caal.The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to share information. The official also identified the girl’s 29-year-old father as Nery Caal.The foreign ministry said Friday that the girl and her father were from an area in northern Guatemala called Raxruha in Alta Verapaz department.The ministry says that according to information provided, the girl and her father were detained by Border Patrol on the night of Dec. 6. While they were being transported to the Border Patrol station in Lordsburg, New Mexico, the girl was feverish and vomiting.Early Dec. 8, Guatemalan officials were told the girl had died at a hospital in El Paso, Texas.— By Sonia Perez D.___8:40 a.m.Immigration officials say an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death of a 7-year-old migrant girl who suffered seizures in custody and later died.Officials say the girl was found Dec. 6 near Lordsburg, New Mexico, by U.S. Border Patrol agents. They say the girl was taken into custody for about eight hours and then began having seizures.Emergency medical technicians discovered her fever was 105.7 degrees Fahrenheit (40.9 degrees Celsius). The Guatemalan girl was airlifted to an El Paso, Texas, hospital, where she died.U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said Friday the girl was traveling with her father, fixing an error in an earlier statement that said she was unaccompanied. The Washington Post reported Thursday she had been traveling with her father, citing the same federal agency.
