Photo: Nebraska’s Mike Riley Brags About The Huskers Dominating “On & Off The Field”

first_imgNebraska coach Mike Riley walks onto the field.LINCOLN, NE – SEPTEMBER 03: Head coach Mike Riley of the Nebraska Cornhuskers walks onto the field before the game against the Fresno State Bulldogs at Memorial Stadium on September 3, 2016 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Nebraska defeated Fresno State 43-10. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)“There’s No Place Like Nebraska” is a Huskers’ fight song and somewhat of a mantra for the Lincoln, Neb.-based college football program. When it comes to the academic success of its players, the mantra is true. No program has produced more Academic All-Americans than the Huskers. With school’s APR scores set to come out today, Nebraska coach Mike Riley felt it was appropriate to boast about his team’s success off the field. Is being an Academic All-American important to you? Look no further than Nebraska! #Huskers pic.twitter.com/G0W1dB7zzD— Mike Riley (@Coach_Riley) May 27, 2015It’s always nice to see program’s putting an emphasis on the student part of being a student-athlete.last_img read more

The Predators Comeback Is No Fluke

Home-ice advantage in the NHL playoffs might be a myth, but don’t tell that to the Nashville Predators. During these playoffs, the Preds are 9-1 when skating on their home sheet at Bridgestone Arena, and home wins in Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Final have drawn them level with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the series, which moves back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Thursday.But it might have been bad luck in the first place that the Predators had to come home and dig out of a 2-0 hole. That’s because the Preds actually played pretty well during Games 1 and 2 in Pittsburgh, dominating possession and outshooting the Pens 64-39. If not for some uncharacteristically awful play from goalie Pekka Rinne, who stopped just 78 percent of the shots he faced in Games 1 and 2 before being pulled in the third period in Game 2, the Preds might already be planning their parade route through Nashville. (It’s not all on Rinne; some questionable officiating in Game 1 didn’t help the Preds much, either.)It was fitting, then, that Rinne’s return to form these past two games has Nashville back in the hunt for its first Stanley Cup in franchise history. Rinne was spectacular in Games 3 and 4 — he stopped 50 of the 52 shots he faced, including insane saves like this one. Rinne leads the playoffs in wins and ranks fourth in save percentage among qualified goalies. (And he’s shouldered a much larger workload than the three goalies ahead of him on that list.)Perhaps the best proof of Rinne’s revival is his dominance on high-quality scoring opportunities. The Penguins took more than twice as many shots from the slot — the dangerous area directly in front of the net1The definition of “the slot” varies depending on who you talk to, but in this case, we used its boundaries as defined by war-on-ice.com. — in Games 3 and 4 as they did in the series’ first two games (20 vs. 7) but scored seven fewer goals. If the Predators hope to finish off their comeback, they’ll need their netminder — who remains the favorite to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as postseason MVP — to keep shaking off Games 1 and 2 and continue his excellent play.Rinne isn’t the only reason that Nashville has been able to claw its way back into the series. Nashville’s shooters have remembered how to finish: In Games 1 and 2, the Preds scored on just 6.3 percent of the shots they took. In Games 3 and 4, that number jumped to 15.3. And the Predators’ defense has limited the effectiveness of some of Pittsburgh’s top forwards. In Games 3 and 4, Phil Kessel, Chris Kunitz and Evgeni Malkin combined for a grand total of zero points on just nine shots and combined for a -10 plus/minus. For the Pens to avoid blowing a 2-0 series lead, they’ll need their stars — in particular Malkin, who leads the league in scoring this postseason — to start playing as such.Only five NHL teams have ever come back from a 2-0 series deficit in the finals and won; the Preds are in a position to become the sixth. To do it, they’ll need to keep dominating at home and win at least one game in Pittsburgh — much easier said than done. But based on the way Nashville has played this series, even in the losses, it has the goods to earn the state of Tennessee its long-awaited first pro championship.CORRECTION (June 7, 4:15 p.m.): An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that only four NHL teams have come back from a 2-0 series deficit to win the Stanley Cup Final. There have been five. The Nashville Predators are trying to become the sixth. read more

Ohio State womens soccer works to scoreless draw against Wisconsin

OSU sophomore midfielder Nikki Walts (4) dribbles the ball during a game agaisnt Minnesota on Sept. 17 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost 2-1. Credit: Sam Harris / For The LanternThe Ohio State women’s soccer team reached the midway point of their season Sunday afternoon in relatively uneventful fashion, drawing a scoreless tie with the Wisconsin Badgers.OSU coach Lori Walker said she was disappointed the team could not pick up a win, but she was encouraged by its overall effort.“I think we have got to take responsibility for the execution of our finishing, and it’s not sharp enough yet,” Walker said. “We created some great chances, but great chances don’t earn you points. I’m appreciative of our effort and the work we put into 110 minutes of soccer, but we are disappointed that we couldn’t walk away with three points.”A crowd of 1,174 was on hand to watch the No. 20 Buckeyes (5-2-2, 0-1-1) face the Badgers (3-4-3, 0-1-1) in the team’s second conference match.In the first half of play, the Buckeyes outshot the Badgers 7-5, and 3-1 in shots on goal. Wisconsin sophomore goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem stood strong with three saves to keep the half scoreless.The second half started quiet until OSU redshirt junior goalkeeper Jillian McVicker slid in the box to corral a loose ball. She took a hit from a Badgers player and was replaced by freshman goalkeeper Devon Kerr in the 63rd minute of play.Kerr, who had made three appearances prior to Sunday’s game, said she was excited for her chance to get in a game in a key spot.“Obviously (I was) nervous, especially being a freshman. I felt a little bit shaky coming into it, but I took it with great excitement,” Kerr said. “Our team was in a really good spot. I wanted to do whatever I could do to make a difference in the result of the game.”Eight minutes later, she made her presence felt with a lunging save against Badgers freshman midfielder Victoria Pickett, the first of four saves on the day for the Ontario product.“I came out with a couple of big stops, but my team did an amazing job defending,” Kerr said. “I think as a team today we did very well, and I think that I did help a lot with it.”The game almost came to a close in regulation as sophomore forward Sammy Edwards had two close shots in the final two minutes of the second half. Clem stood tall, and the game went to overtime.The extra period saw plenty of action as the Buckeyes and Badgers combined for six shots, three for each team. Both teams also had a goal disallowed during the extra action.Following Sunday’s game, the Buckeyes are halfway through their season. Walker said she is happy with the way the team is adjusting at this point in the season but still sees room for improvement.“I think we are adapting and adjusting much faster than we were in the beginning of the season,” she said. “Clearly we have got to take care of business in that final third and inside the box a little bit better, but I’m pleased with the adjustments they’re making on the fly.”The back half of the Buckeyes’ schedule is road heavy, with the next three games being away from Columbus. Walker, however, said she sees that as a positive.“In some ways being on the road is easier because you can control almost everything that’s going on,” Walker said. “I think we traditionally do pretty well on the road and we just take them one game at a time.”The Buckeyes are next set to take the field on Friday in Iowa City, Iowa, as they face the University of Iowa Hawkeyes. read more
