Mississippi won 27-19. Mandatory Credit: Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY SportsAUBURN — There was one conversation this week between coach and player about what happened last year, about that freaky play on the half-yard line that broke Laquon Treadwell’s leg, gave the win to Auburn and ended Ole Miss’ championship dreams. It was a short one, because almost as soon as Hugh Freeze had finished telling Treadwell not to be distracted by 2014 Freeze got the only answer he wanted.“I just want to go play.”And man did Treadwell do just that on Saturday, leading No. 19 Ole Miss to a 27-19 win at Auburn that keeps the Rebels (7-2, 4-1 SEC) as one of two teams (along with LSU) that control their own SEC West destiny.The Tigers (4-4, 1-4) threatened to pull off the upset for a while Saturday, taking an early lead and then sticking with the Rebels into the fourth quarter. Treadwell ended that notion with as physically dominating a play as you’ll see, catching an over-the-shoulder throw from quarterback Chad Kelly in the endzone — as Auburn corner Carlton Davis first grabbed a hold of Treadwell’s jersey in a futile effort to pull him back and later jumped on top of the receiver. Treadwell stayed under control and took several steps before falling to the ground. The officials reviewed it and as clean as it was, I swear they just wanted to see it again.“The ball came to me and I just had to make the play,” Treadwell said.“Just a really nice throw,” Freeze said, who then grinned before adding, “… and catch.”MISS vs. AUB – ESPN VideoThe 21-yard touchdown made it 27-19 with 10:13 to play, and was the end of a seven-catch, 114-yard day from Treadwell. That’s a very nice game statistically, but you have to remember that Treadwell caught the ball every time Kelly (33-of-51 for 381 yards) threw it to him. There were three catches for 32 yards on the drive that ended in Kelly finding Derrick Jones from 45 yards out to make it 20-13, and the drive that ended in Treadwell’s touchdown began with a 33-yard catch along the left sideline.“That’s what Laquon does and that’s why we keep trying to tell Chad if you get him (in single coverage) and throw it out there he’s probably going to make a play for you,” co-offensive coordinator Dan Werner said.Kelly needs all the help he can get — with two interceptions Saturday he has 12 on the season. One was not his fault, a dropped pass gone awry, but the other, when Kelly did not see the linebacker in underneath coverage, was. Kelly knows what mistake he has made as soon as he gets to the sideline, Freeze said, but it’s not connecting yet on the field.While Kelly tries to get to that point, he would be well-served to remember this: get Treadwell the ball. Get it to him in single coverage. Get it to him in double coverage. Get it to him down the sideline. Get it to him across the middle of the field. Get it to him on screens. Hand him the ball and let him throw it (Kelly did so Saturday, and Treadwell completed a 21-yard pass) if Treadwell wants. The more times Treadwell touches the ball, the better chance Ole Miss has to get to where it wants to go.They made a rap song not so long ago for Ole Miss’ No. 1 receiver and the desire to see him catch the football, and it became a mantra around these parts: Feed Moncrief. But Treadwell, who has four-straight 100-yard receiving games and is the fastest Rebel ever to 2,000 career receiving yards, is better than Donte Moncrief ever was. Which is no slight to the former, because just look at what Treadwell is doing — with 61 catches for 870 yards through nine games, Treadwell leads the SEC and is on pace to break both school records. Part of the reason Treadwell can put 2014 behind him mentally is that physically he’s not just the receiver he once was but actually better.Contact Hugh Kellenberger at (601) 961-7291 or hkellenber@jackson.gannett.com.

West Indian Sports Complex in Halley’s corner

first_imgNineteen-year-old boxer, Shemar Halley, will have the support of West Indian Sports Complex as he looks to advance his career in the sport over in Trinidad and Tobago. Recently, the Robb Street-based sports goods store made a significant contribution to the pugilist from the Forgotten Youth Foundation Gym which is based in the community of Albouystown.The young man rose to prominence early last year when he was adjudged the best elite welterweight fighter in the Guyana Amateur Boxing Association’s Andrew Lewis National Novices Championship and later in the Junior Lightweight division in the Lennox Blackmore Intermediate Championships.Halley explained that the sponsorship meant a lot to him and that he was pleased to have the company in his corner along with coach Sebert Blake and young pugilist, Keevin Allicock. He said that it is moments like this which give him the encouragement to go on and represent well and to show that their investment has not gone to waste and he pledged to make full use of the opportunity. Halley indicated that he is grateful for the opportunity to develop his career and get the exposure of fighting overseas early which will in turn help with his progression in the sport.Meanwhile, Proprietor of West Indies Sports Complex, Javed Khan reflected on what he has seen the young man do in the ring and was pleased with his performance, noting that “he is very gifted and is definitely one for the future.”Khan added that it was on this basis that he believed sponsoring Halley would do well for the young talent as well as symbolise what the company stands for in promoting and aiding athletes in whatever way they can. The proprietor wished Halley well and reminded him that everyone was behind him to do well.last_img read more

Defense offers glimpse of what Ravens will need down stretch

first_img(This blog brought to you by Atlantic Remodeling. Visit www.atlanticremodeling.com to learn about their Red Cent Guarantee!)BALTIMORE — The Ravens defense talked extensively about its need to be more dynamic and to finish stronger late in games after narrow losses to Green Bay, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland over the last month.A Hail Mary touchdown pass from Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to A.J. Green on the final play of regulation certainly jeopardized that goal, but the Ravens rebounded in overtime for a 20-17 win to not only snap a three-game losing streak but — for the time being, anyway — save their season. The last-second gaffe received much of the attention following the game, but the Baltimore defense’s aggressiveness in forcing three turnovers and sacking Dalton five times was the most encouraging takeaway from Sunday’s game.After a series of solid performances that weren’t quite good enough in recent weeks, the Ravens defense was a game-wrecking unit against the Bengals for most of the afternoon on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Ravens offense looked a lot like, well, the Ravens offense after being held scoreless in the third and fourth quarters and failing to run out the clock after a James Ihedigbo interception with 1:55 remaining in regulation.General manager Ozzie Newsome spent most of the Ravens’ resources this offseason to upgrade the defense, and the results have been solid but unspectacular. While certainly an above-average unit that entered Week 10 ranked 10th overall in yards allowed and points surrendered, the Ravens have lacked the ability to make game-changing plays (entering Week 10 ranked 11th in the AFC with only 10 takeaways) to support an offense that’s struggled mightily all season and have surrendered long second-half drives to eliminate potential comeback attempts.Sunday’s performance against the league’s ninth-ranked offense and seventh-ranked passing attack was exactly what the Ravens needed to not only rebound from a disappointing first half but to give hope of advancing to the postseason for the sixth consecutive year. If the Ravens are to achieve that goal, a game-changing defense would provide a major shot in the arm to an offense that looks lost more often than not.“We have the motto that once you put it on tape, that’s what expected of you,” said Ihedigbo, who had two interceptions but inexplicably batted the ball in the air to Green on the touchdown to force overtime on the final play of regulation. “Defensively, we played lights out today. I made the reference back to the 2000 defense — they didn’t give up anything to anybody. And when you go with that mindset, it shows on the field.”Expecting them to rise to the level of the Super Bowl XXXV defense would be too much to ask, but the Ravens showed a level of aggression not seen all season with defensive coordinator Dean Pees calling an increased number of blitzes that led to Dalton being hit nine times, contributing to his completion percentage falling below 50 percent. However, the most dynamic change to Pees’ defense was the decision to move cornerback Lardarius Webb inside in the nickel package, a position he played with great success prior to the second ACL injury of his career last season.The change led to Webb’s best game of the season as the fifth-year cornerback collected his first interception and made six pass breakups to go along with five tackles. On a day that included strong performances across the board in the secondary, Webb was the best player on the field for the Ravens.It remains to be seen whether the Ravens will make it a permanent move as No. 3 cornerback Corey Graham lacks the ideal size to play on the outside — Webb previously played inside when the Ravens had the bigger Cary Williams available to play outside opposite Jimmy Smith — but the 5-foot-10 Webb played more aggressively than he has all season in blitzing from the nickel spot and getting hands up in passing lanes.“That’s my thing. I always play outside because that’s where they wanted me and that’s where they need me,” said Webb about the position change in the nickel package. “I felt like with me playing safety in college and liking to tackle and eyes roaming sometimes, that’s just my spot. I like that spot; I felt comfortable. With that position, you get to tackle, you get to blitz, you get to cover, you get to do it all. You kind of just get to play football.”The key to beating the Bengals was providing enough harassment on all levels of the defense to entice the bad Dalton to surface as he did in Miami in Week 9. A secondary that included three players listed as questionable on the final injury report of the week rose to the occasion and limited the Bengals’ big plays other than the 51-yard prayer that was tipped into Green’s hands to force the extra period. However, the defense rebounded to make a fourth-down stop of running back Giovani Bernard in overtime to give the Ravens the ball back at their own 44 before the final game-winning drive.Third-year cornerback Jimmy Smith had one of his best days as a pro, making five tackles and breaking up two passes of his own, and Ihedigbo and rookie Matt Elam turned in strong performances at the safety spots as the Ravens broke up 17 passes in all. Of course, they could thank a ferocious pass rush led by Elvis Dumervil’s 2 1/2 sacks for lending a hand up front.“Our secondary played tremendously well,” coach John Harbaugh said. “Everybody is going to talk about the last play [in regulation], which is a shame in some ways. Maybe you will talk about the whole game. I thought the pressure was very good, but our secondary covered a very talented and gifted receiving corps all day.”The Ravens offered a glimpse on Sunday of what they’ll need the rest of the way to give themselves a real shot down the stretch. The offense was again miserable beyond an ability to capitalize on good field position a couple times in the first half and to put together a 28-yard drive in overtime to set up Justin Tucker’s 48-yard field goal to win the game.Baltimore must have the dynamic, game-changing defensive effort it got Sunday on a regular basis because the offense continues to show no signs of real improvement. It’s no secret that the Ravens lack balance and have struggled in all three phases of the game at different times this season, but Sunday’s win represented a successful attempt to augment the team’s biggest strength.The challenge will be repeating it moving forward.“We have to play great as a defense if we want to get back on track,” Webb said. “And today, from the [defensive] line with all the pressure [to] the turnovers, we played great as a defense as a whole. We’ve got to keep getting our hands on the ball. If we keep getting turnovers, then we can keep winning.”last_img read more

Player Profiles: Manny Machado

first_imgPlease follow and like us: The Baltimore Orioles have had one of the best third baseman in the history of baseball in Brooks Robinson.  Enter Manny Machado who came up to the Majors at the young age of 19.The Orioles drafted Machado in the 2010 MLB draft, he was the third overall pick.  Machado made his Major League debut in 2012, his first full season was in 2013.  Machado is one of the reasons for the Orioles return to winning and was a major reason why the Orioles had the best defense in baseball history in 2013.Machado never really played third base in the minors, he spent most of his time playing short stop.  With little practice at third base the Orioles brought Machado up and had him play third everyday.Defensively Machado is one of the best defenders I have ever seen play the game.  Machado’s knock on him as a prospect was that he would make lazy errors, this has not been seen at the Major League level.  Machado won the Platinum Glove in 2013 being voted the best defender in league.Machado does not lack offensively, still developing as a hitter he has a career .279 average and 21 home runs prior to the 2014 season.  Machado has been a doubles machine and hits the balks to all fields.  There are no real wholes in Machado’s game offensively or defensively.Machado’s stellar play has made him a fan favorite in Baltimore and is one of Buck Showalter’s favorite players.I worry that the Orioles may over use Machado, his knee injury late in 2013 was evidence of that.  It is so hard to take Machado out of the lineup but I think he needs some rest.The future is bright for Machado and I think he will be an All-Star for years.  If Machado stays healthy and keeps his head on straight I can see him in the Baseball Hall of Fame.Here are some of Machado’s stats.
