  1. Clemson......wins championship last year, opens this year as number one, goes undefeated and is number three at the end of the year??????
  2. Seems like only yesterday all we heard on the forums was "Moochele"
  3. You had to like Meredith's performance yesterday! I was impressed with Brooks' Rec Hall debut and the usual performances of Joseph, Hall, Lee and RBY. You have to wonder about the Conel injury.....will he ever be healthy and return to his form of two years ago?
  4. UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; December 8, 2019 – The Penn State Nittany Lions (3-1, 0-0 B1G) won all but two bouts to rout the Penn Quakers (0-1) in sold out Rec Hall on Sunday. The Nittany Lions rode an early win at 125 and a career milestone in the second half to a 33-7 victory over the visiting Quakers. Senior Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.) picked up his 100th career victory in the dual while freshman Brandon Meredith (Limerick, Pa.) opened the action with a big win at 125. The dual was witnessed by 6,437 fans in the 50th straight sellout in Rec Hall. Penn State has sold out 55 of its last 57 home events, including 50 straight in Rec Hall and five of seven in the 16,000-seat Bryce Jordan Center. Meredith made his Rec Hall dual debut, stepping in for classmate Brody Teske (Duncombe, Iowa). Meredith energized the Rec Hall crowd with a furious close to the match. Meredith trailed 5-1 in the second and came back in the second and third periods to roll to an 8-5 win over No. 10 Michael Colaiocco. Sophomore Roman Bravo-Young (Tucson, Ariz.), ranked No. 4 at 133, then continued the fast start, posting a dominant 21-9 major decision over Penn's Carmen Ferrante to give Penn State a 7-0 lead. Junior Nick Lee (Evansville, Ind.), ranked No. 3 at 141, continued his torrid start to the season, posting a 13-4 major decision over Penn's Doug Zapf. Junior Luke Gardner (Pottsville, Pa.) got the nod at 149 and withstood a late flurry from Penn's Lucas Revano to post a hard-fought 7-6 victory, giving the Nittany Lions a 14-0 lead. Junior Bo Pipher (Paonia, Colo.) stepped in for No. 6 Brady Berge (Mantorville, Minn.) at 157 and lost a tough 5-2 decision to No. 10 Anthony Artalona to close out the opening half. Penn State led 14-3 at the dual's midway point. Senior Vincenzo Joseph (Pittsburgh, Pa.), ranked No. 1 at 165, opened up the second half in style, pinning Jake Lizak at the 4:25 mark after leading 13-3 midway through the second period. Hall, ranked No. 1 at 174, dominated Penn's Neil Antrassian to post a 19-4 technical fall at the 7:00 mark. The victory was the 100th of Hall's career, improving his overall record to 100-5. True freshman Aaron Brooks (Hagerstown, Md.) made his Rec Hall dual debut for Penn State at 184 with No. 2 Shakur Rasheed (Coram, N.Y.) still out. Brooks thrilled the Rec Hall faithful rolling to a 19-4 technical fall at the 6:03 mark in his home dual debut. Graduate senior Kyle Conel (Ashtabula, Ohio), ranked No. 20 at 197, bolted out to a big early lead on Penn's Cole Urbas and then withstood an injury late in the second period to post a 6-5 victory to put Penn State up 33-3. With No. 1 Anthony Cassar (Rocky Hill, N.J.) held out at 285, sophomore 197-pounder Austin Hoopes (Afton, Wyo.) moved up to 285 where he dropped a 14-4 major to Penn's Joey Slackman in the dual's final bout. Penn State posted a lopsided 36-10 advantage in takedowns. The Nittany Lions tacked on nine bonus points off a pin (Joseph), two tech falls (Hall, Brooks) and two majors (Bravo-Young, Lee). Penn State is now 3-1 overall, 0-0 in the Big Ten. Penn falls to 0-1. The Nittany Lions return to action on Friday, Jan. 10, 2020, hosting Illinois in Rec Hall at 7 p.m. Two days later, the Lions host Northwestern in Rec Hall on Sunday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m.
  5. I need to correct my mistake from yesterday. For some reason I was thinking that Clemson was in the SEC. Must not have had enough coffee in the system when I posted
  6. I can't cheer for any team associated with Lyin' Nick Saban
  7. I am hoping that they name LSU number one today, that would mean OSU would have to play Clemson in the semi and we could see an all SEC championship Burrows should win the Heisman and will probably be drafted number one by the Bengals, I have been hoping all year that Miami could somehow draft him but I don't see that happening now unless they try to trade away some of their first and second round picks.
  8. I like it also, whether or nor I "love" it will be depend on their choice for pitching coach. Shelton has a good pedigree, especially with hitters.
  9. Aww LFG don't take it so hard, Sapphire is just gherkin your chain
  10. Pirates hire Twins bench coach Derek Shelton as manager 12:36 PM ET ESPN Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print The Pittsburgh Pirates completed their leadership makeover Wednesday, hiring Derek Shelton to be their new manager. Shelton spent the past two seasons as the Minnesota Twins' bench coach. This will be his first major league managerial job. "I have known Derek for more than 15 years and have great admiration for his passion for the game and players, work ethic, curiosity and desire to learn," Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said in a statement. Shelton's previous stops include a season as quality control coach for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2017 -- his tenure overlapping Cherington's stint as Toronto's vice president of baseball operations -- and seven years as a hitting coach with the Tampa Bay Rays. Shelton broke into the majors as hitting coach for the Cleveland Indians from 2005 to 2009, and he has managed in the New York Yankees' minor league system. EDITOR'S PICKS Cherington on Pirates: Scouting will drive success NL Central offseason preview: Cards, Cubs, Brewers all need refresh Cherington added that Shelton "will help lead an elite playing and coaching environment at the major league level and be a true partner to all of baseball operations." Shelton, 49, said in a statement that he wants to facilitate a "player-centric culture built on strong communication and relationships with our players, our staff and the entire organization." He replaces Clint Hurdle, who was fired in September amid the franchise's worst season (69-93) since 2010. The Pirates hired Cherington to be their general manager earlier this month and named Travis Williams as their new president in October. Shelton filled the eighth and final managerial vacancy, joining Joe Maddon (Angels), Joe Girardi (Phillies), David Ross (Cubs), Jayce Tingler (Padres), Mike Matheny (Royals), Carlos Beltran (Mets) and Gabe Kapler (Giants). Beltran was the only racial minority hired. Shelton inherits a team that finished below .500 in three of the past four seasons, though the on-field product during a miserable 25-48 second half proved to be just part of Pittsburgh's issues in 2019. Relievers Keone Kela and Kyle Crick were suspended for their roles in separate dustups with members of the team's coaching and support staff. All-Star closer Felipe Vazquez was arrested in September on felony charges stemming from an alleged sexual assault of a minor. Cherington said shortly after his hiring that the Pirates need to do a better job of continuing to develop players once they reach the major leagues. Owner Bob Nutting expressed frustration at seeing former Pirates prospects flourish elsewhere, including Rays outfielder Austin Meadows and pitcher Tyler Glasnow. Amid the losing, there were bright spots. First baseman Josh Bell became an All-Star while hitting 37 home runs. Rookie outfielder Bryan Reynolds hit .314 and finished fourth in National League Rookie of the Year balloting, and shortstop Kevin Newman hit .308 in 130 games after being elevated to the starting role following an early season injury to Erik Gonzalez. The pitching staff, however, is in tatters. Ace Jameson Taillon is out for 2020 after Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow for a second time. Pittsburgh finished with a team ERA of 5.18, next to last in the NL and 26th in the majors. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
  11. When I started working in retail grocery (1969), stores were closed for all major holidays and every Sunday. Store hours were Mon-Thus. 9AM-7PM, Fri. and Sat 9AM-9PM . All retailers used pretty much that same timetable.
