Ohio State football reunion doesnt rule out Tressel Clarett

by ,

The guest list for the Ohio State’s 2002 national championship team reunion consists of three or four names, but it won’t stay that short for long.The defensive captain of the 2002 Buckeyes, which secured its place in OSU football lore with a 31-24, double overtime win against Miami (Fla.) in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, isn’t ruling out appearances from former OSU coach Jim Tressel or tailback Maurice Clarett.OSU’s 2002 national championship squad will reconvene at Ohio Stadium for the Buckeyes’ Nov. 24 game against Michigan where they it will be recognized by the university and conduct other celebratory activities on its own.Former OSU safety Mike Doss, the defensive MVP of the 2002 national championship game, told The Lantern Thursday that he has been planning the event on behalf of the entire team. Former quarterback Craig Krenzel, safety Donnie Nickey and cornerback Dustin Fox have been “in constant communication to make everything go.”Doss told The Lantern that he, Krenzel, Nickey and Fox might be the only four players committed to the event for now, but more members of the 2002 team are expected to join in the festivities.Tressel could be among the attendees too, Doss said.“I don’t think it would be an issue with coach Tressel coming back and reuniting with his players of the past knowing that he was our coach,” Doss said. “Knowing what kind of impact he had on us. What kind of impact we had on him and his career, I don’t think that would feel uncomfortable for him at all because we love coach Tressel, we support him as OSU supports each and every one of us.“Right now you’ve got three or four guys … Just the little bit of hints that we’ve reached out, that I think everyone would be committed and involved as much as they can.”OSU athletic director Gene Smith shared similar sentiments during a radio interview on WBNS-FM 97.1 about a possible return to Ohio Stadium for Tressel, saying it wouldn’t be awkward at all if Tressel came back.Tressel was forced to resign as OSU coach May 30 after it was discovered he was aware of players violations that occurred during the 2010 season, failed to report the violations and fielded ineligible players during the 2010 season, which was later vacated.Tressel did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s Thursday request for comment.Doss said he and his three teammates planning the event wouldn’t accept a celebration of their national championship that didn’t include Tressel, as well as Clarett.Clarett ran for 1,237 yards and 16 touchdowns during the Buckeyes’ championship run. After the season, Clarett sued the NFL in an attempt to declare for the 2004 NFL Draft.Later, Clarett pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a concealed weapon and served three-and-a-half years in a Toledo prison.Doss said Tressel and Clarett’s transgressions are separate issues from the on-field accomplishments of the 2002 championship team.“Coach Tressel was a part of that team. He was the nucleus,” Doss said. “Maurice Clarrett – one of the best tailbacks to play at Ohio State for one season and a career. You know, he was a phenomenal player for us that year. We would not accept anything presented to the university if both of those guys weren’t included.“We all communicated to ourselves that anything that was going to be organized has to include each and every one that was involved. Period. If that was going to be an issue then we would have respectfully declined. But the university embraced coach Tressel and Maurice.”Clarett did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s Thursday request for comment but indicated he would attend the reunion on Twitter.From his account, @ReeseClarett13, Clarett said, “indeed my friend….,” in response to a question regarding whether he would attend the event.Clarett said in a later tweet: “me and Tress have been cool since before I went to prison. A lot of ppl don’t know that. I couldn’t do it (without) him.”Doss said the timing for a reunion is right for several reasons, but most of all because the 2002 championship is the university’s only one in the last 10 years, as well as for nearly 40 years prior to that.Aside from university recognition, Doss said he, Krenzel, Nickey and Fox are working on preparing a dinner reception and a tailgate prior to the noon kickoff against the Wolverines.There is also interest in returning to show support for the current team, as well as first-year coach Urban Meyer and his staff, Doss said.The Buckeyes’ opponent that day was a factor too.“It’s coach Meyer’s first Michigan game,” Doss said. “It’ll be an opportunity for a lot of support to be there for the coaching staff and it’s Michigan – that’s all you have to say.” read more

first_imgJulian Draxler has warned his Germany teammates that Kylian Mbappe’s speed can reach up to 300 horsepowerDie Mannschaft head into tonight’s Nations League clash at France in desperate need of a strong result in order to avoid relegation to the B division.One player that must be stopped at all costs is Mbappe, who inspired France to a late comeback 2-2 draw with Iceland last time out.The 19-year-old striker is in superb form right now and Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Draxler knows that Germany cannot let their guard down against him for even a second.“If he has space to get started, it’s almost impossible to catch him with his 300 hp,” Draxler told T-online.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“His speed and his finishing [are his biggest weapons]. We must not allow him to use either, by defending very compact.”Draxler, whose own PSG future is in doubt at the moment, believes that the squad have responded well under new manager Thomas Tuchel’s methods.“He spreads a good atmosphere, inside and outside. He lets us play attractive football, he has clear ideas and he gives these to us very clearly,” Draxler added.“After losing to Liverpool, he told us very clearly what had gone wrong. Not everything is ‘peace, joy and pancakes’ on the way to success. But that’s also why he does very well and has the team on his side.”last_img read more

Chris Hughton praises Dunk Duffy

by ,

first_imgBrighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has heaped praises on the club’s central defensive pairing of Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk.The Seagulls’ success in establishing themselves in the Premier League owes a lot to their defensive capabilities, built on the reliable centre-back partnership of Dunk and Duffy.Dunk, who’s Brighton’s vice-captain became an England international last November, while Duffy is a regular with the Republic of Ireland national team.Hughton says the pair are vital members of his team and feels both players can improve by watching Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk play.“What Van Dijk is to Liverpool, that’s what our two are to us,” said Hughton, according to Belfast Telegraph.“We know what level he is but if I’m looking at what you would regard as two outstanding centre-halves at our level, ours are as valuable to us as what he is to them.”BRIGHTON, ENGLAND - MAY 12: Chris Hughton, Manager of Brighton and Hove Albion looks on prior to the Premier League match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester City at American Express Community Stadium on May 12, 2019 in Brighton, United Kingdom. (Photo by Mike Hewitt/Getty Images)Hughton’s first words after being sacked Manuel R. Medina – May 22, 2019 The former Brighton and Hove Albion manager says he was “hugely disappointed and surprised” when he was fired from the club.“The two we have will look at the best around where they can learn from, what they can pick up from. At the moment, he (Van Dijk) is a great role model. He doesn’t miss many games, is good in both boxes and is a top, top all-around player.”Despite being four points clear at the top of the Premier League, Liverpool was beaten 2-1 by second-placed Manchester City in their last league game, before crashing out of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.Asked if the Liverpool can end their long wait for a first division title, Hughton said the Reds are favourites but “wouldn’t put money on it”.“I think they are favourites simply because of the points difference, and I think they’ve been outstanding,” he said.“But I couldn’t tell you who will win it. And certainly, I wouldn’t put money on it.”last_img read more

first_imgAugust 10, 2009 This is the third installment in a series of reports with the most recent 3D renderings of “SOLARE The Lean Linear City”. Excerpts from BEYOND GRIDLOCK Paolo Soleri’s Lean Linear City by Tomiaki Tamura, Cosanti Foundation, August 2009. [Energy Production] The relatively low-cost and highly efficient (in dollar value per energy output) form of non-renewable energy, namely fossil fuels, has certainly brought our western world unprecedented progress in the last century. We are also aware of the environmental and human costs that have resulted from progress’ ever-increasing carbon emission in our atmosphere, as the rest of the world began sharing a piece of our prosperity. Depending on regional climatic and topographical conditions, SOLARE introduces alternative energy production options: continuous arrays of photovoltaic modules harvesting solar energy and a series of windmills capturing wind energy. [3D rendering: YoungSoo Kim & text: Tomiaki Tamura] Both systems are located at the top of the structures to take advantage of non-polluting renewable energies. Passive solar features such as glazed atrium spaces and attached greenhouses (Energy Apron) add to the energy efficiency of the building. If all the combinations of the suggested energy production systems are employed for the urban modules, they would support 80-100% of their energy needs. [3D rendering: YoungSoo Kim & text: Tomiaki Tamura] [Water Usage] Efficient organization of water supply and wastewater reclamation systems requires substantial capital investment even in a highly dense lean linear urban environment. [3D rendering: YoungSoo Kim & text: Tomiaki Tamura] However, SOLARE tries to focus especially on the reduction of water usage by introducing a climate-controlled atrium for urban activity spaces and greenhouses for agricultural production. [3D rendering: YoungSoo Kim & text: Tomiaki Tamura] Additionally alternative energy production systems certainly reduce the dependence on the more conventional energy production facilities such as power plants and/or oil refineries that consume substantial amounts of water for their industrial needs. The residents also enjoy immediate access to recreational areas that feature bodies of water such as rivers and lakes within pedestrian reach or via other means of transportation. The open agricultural fields are in close proximity to reusable treated water augmenting their irrigation needs. Water storages are located in the upper part of the SOLARE structure to give plenty of gravitational pressure for reliable water distribution system. Depending on geographical location, desalination technology can be employed to optimize available water resources. This report continues on 8/12/2009.
