Anthony Foley’s men stormed out of the blocks but had nothing to show for some terrific build-up play until young flanker Jack O’Donoghue crossed in the 28th minute. Hooker Eusebio Guinazu added a second before the break for a 12-0 lead. Glasgow looked a shell of the side that had surged to the league’s summit, missing 23 players due to a combination of Scotland commitments, injuries and suspensions. They launched a stirring second half fight-back, though, setting up prop Rossouw de Klerk for a fine 59th minute try. Munster responded immediately with a superb Keith Earls score and CJ Stander’s maul try registered the bonus point. Early turnover ball sent Munster’s influential captain Denis Hurley breaking into the Glasgow 22 but John Ryan’s subsequent offload to Duncan Williams went to ground. Peter Murchie and Niko Matawalu then did well to close down the options for man-of-the-match Earls as the Munster centre surged up the left wing. Earls glided through on the right soon after, but Connor Braid crucially got back to intercept a pass from Andrew Conway. Despite their first quarter dominance, Munster remained scoreless with Ian Keatley drifting a 39-metre penalty wide. Matawalu showed brilliant pace and footwork as Glasgow sliced open the home defence on the right, however Munster finally opened the scoring from a clever attack near the half hour mark. JJ Hanrahan took the ball on from a quickly-taken lineout, Keatley swept out to the left where he dummied his way into the 22 and his pass back inside released O’Donoghue on a well-timed run to the line. O’Donoghue’s third successive PRO12 try went unconverted but Keatley added the extras to Guinazu’s 37th-minute effort, as the Argentina international scored off a lineout maul near the left corner. Glasgow found their rhythm on the restart, Braid landing the second of two penalty attempts and from a better return in the scrum and lineout, Ali Kellock and Josh Strauss became more prominent. The gap was suddenly down to just two points after tighthead de Klerk took a great line onto a Braid pass. He barged past Williams and crashed over under the posts with Braid converting. That concession seemed to refocus Munster and Earls, chasing down a pinpoint Keatley kick, delighted the home crowd by using his right instep to flick the ball up into his arms and dive over in the right corner. Keatley was having an off-night from the kicking tee, missing the conversion and also failing to add the extras to Stander’s touchdown. Glasgow rallied in search of a losing bonus point but their luck was out when Lee Jones had a foot in touch before grounding the ball in the 75th minute. Munster moved above Glasgow to the top of the Guinness PRO12 after defeating the under-strength Scots in Cork in a 22-10 bonus point win. Press Association
Deceased pets have been recovered from a chartered jet that ran into a river at a Florida military base.Officials of the Jacksonville Naval Air Station Jacksonville confirmed late Sunday that a dog and two cats were recovered in their carriers from the Boeing 737 that crashed into the St. Johns River.None of the 143 human passengers and crew members had serious injuries from the incident which occurred, Friday evening.Despite two failed attempts, rescuers were unable to remove the pets from the cargo area immediately after the landing because that section of the plane was underwater.Instead, divers were sent in Sunday to retrieve the animals.Base officials said another cat that flew in the plane’s cabin was safely removed by the cat’s owner.On Monday, the operator of the plane offered $2,500 to each passenger as a “goodwill gesture.”Miami Air International made the offer to the 136 passengers in an open letter from the airline’s CEO expressing regret for what happened.“We understand and appreciate the difficult experience you endured,” wrote CEO Kurt Kamrad.The Boeing 737 was traveling from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba when it landed at the Florida base, skidding into the river.Related content:Plane crashes into Jacksonville river, 21 hospitalized
Former Broward Sheriff Scott Israel has filed a federal complaint against Governor Ron DeSantis, after the Florida Senate voted last month not to reinstate him as sheriff.The lawsuit seeks Israel’s reinstatement on the grounds that the state Senate’s removal decision was purely a partisan action.According to the lawsuit, the Senate “changed the rules” to allow a “trial by ambush.” In addition, the lawsuit claims that DeSantis failed to prove any allegations of neglect of duty or incompetence to justify Israel’s removal. Ben Kuehne, one of Israel’s lawyers, “The Senate charade was nothing more than a carefully scripted scheme to subvert Due Process by creating new allegations and presenting false facts to remove this Democrat from Sheriff of Broward County as preparations for the 2020 election are underway. The harm done to the Constitution by taking away the power of the people to elect their officials is frightening.” Earlier this year, Governor DeSantis issued an order to have Israel removed as Broward’s sheriff.In April, a Broward Circuit judge ruled that DeSantis had acted within his authority. However, Florida Senate special master Dudley Goodlette recommended in September that Israel be reinstated.Israel also filed paperwork last July to run for re-election as sheriff in next year’s Democratic primary.
From 1959-2006, the USC men’s basketball team played its home games at the Los Angeles Sports Arena in Exposition Park, adjacent to the University Park Campus.Rivals collide · At the Galen Center in January, UCLA defeated the Trojans by 19 points. The Trojans have won six games on the season and stands last in the conference, while UCLA is 14-11 and stands in seventh. The Trojans have just five regular season games left this year. – Luciano Nunez | Daily TrojanBut this season the Trojans’ crosstown rival, UCLA, has called the 52-year-old venue home, while its on-campus arena, Pauley Pavilion, undergoes renovations scheduled to be completed fall.On Wednesday, USC (6-20, 1-12) will return to the Sports Arena for the first time in six years to face the Bruins.“It’s an old building,” freshman guard Byron Wesley said. “I know it has a lot of history so I’m excited to play there.”But that doesn’t mean it won’t be a little strange, either.“It’s going to be a little weird with it being down the street,” Wesley said. “But we still have to go out there and play hard.”Through 11 games this season at the Sports Arena, which is roughly 15 miles east of UCLA’s campus, the Bruins (14-11, 7-6) have gone 11-4. UCLA’s most recent game was a 73-63 home loss to first-place California.But whatever struggles the Bruins have had this season pale in comparison to those of USC. Currently, the Trojans have lost 13 of their last 14 games and have won just once in the months of January and February.Following Sunday’s 59-47 loss to Stanford, they have lost 20 games for the first time since the 1988-1989 season.“There is no fun in losing — for anybody,” USC coach Kevin O’Neill said following the 12-point loss to the Cardinal. “And there’s really no fun in losing ugly. I’m aware of all that. But what we need to do as a group is keep doing our job every single day.”What has given the Trojans the most trouble this season is scoring. Currently, they average 53.3 points per game, which puts them 342nd out of 344 Division I teams.Such scoring difficulties, as O’Neill is often quick to point, stem largely from the injuries of several starters, redshirt sophomore center Dewayne Dedmon, senior guard Jio Fontan and redshirt junior forward Aaron Fuller, that have left the Trojans with just six scholarship players healthy enough to play.As a result, most starters are playing at least 30 minutes per game.“All these guys are getting a great opportunity to prove what they can do,” O’Neill said. “The more they can prove what they can do, the bigger their role will be going forward.”One of those players is Wesley, who ranks seventh among all Pac-12 freshmen in scoring with 8.1 points per game and fourth in rebounds at 4.8 per game.“I love the way Byron Wesley has played,” O’Neill said. “I really do. He fights hard. Whatever these guys do will decide their role in the future.”USC lost to UCLA earlier this season, 66-47, its sixth loss in a row at the time, at the Galen Center, where the Trojans made 18 of 50 field goal attempts.Tip-off will be at 7:30 p.m. and will be televised by Fox Sports Prime Ticket.
Megan McCormick / The Badger HeraldFollowing the humbling loss to Oregon State last weekend, senior tight end Jacob Pedersen stood in front of the offense at a meeting Sunday with a simple message: Believe.Clearly shaken by the upset at Reser Stadium, the Badgers sit at a pivotal point in the season, with more than a single victory on the line under the lights at Camp Randall Saturday. It’s a chance to not only regain a sense of confidence, but to keep the hopes of a BCS bowl game within sight.It’s an unfamiliar position for a program that has finished with at least 10 wins each of the past three seasons.“(The urgency) wasn’t there before because I guess all of us players now, we’re used to being on top,” senior running back Montee Ball said. “We’re not really used to building a program. We came in when this program was great, so right now we’re all learning.”That sense of urgency – the apparent word of the week for the Badgers – is precisely what Wisconsin will need to right the ship against an Aggies squad fresh off an adrenaline-pumping victory over in-state rival Utah, breaking a streak of 12-straight losses to the Utes. Across the line of scrimmage from Ball and an offensive line that has severely underperformed through the first two games is a 3-4 defense that has surrendered an average of only 76 yards per game on the ground this season. In its second year using three defensive linemen and four linebackers – a scheme primarily used in the NFL – Utah State’s defense will rely on confusion and creativity to keep an already-reeling Wisconsin team off-balance.“We have got to stay humble and hungry,” Utah State senior linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu said in a Monday press conference. “With our defense playing how it is in the past two games, I think we can do anything right now.”But UW quarterback Danny O’Brien, who threw for 172 yards and a costly interception against Oregon State, may be in an even tougher spot this weekend.Nevin Lawson, a speedy junior cornerback with NFL potential, serves as the centerpiece of a shifty secondary that can both blitz and drop into pass coverage and surrendered 229 passing yards to Utah. “They got a great (defensive back) corps, probably one of the better that we’ll see all season long,” wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni said. “(Lawson) is a heck of a player; he’s as good of a corner as I think there is in the country.”When Ball is not on the field attempting to finally break out and make up for his lack of Heisman-worthy numbers, the UW defense will have its hands full against dangerous dual-threat quarterback Chuckie Keeton. A sophomore who completed nearly 70 percent of his passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns and gained another 86 with his own legs in the upset of Utah, Keeton creates serious matchup issues for the Badgers.Though the defense did an admirable job keeping the Beavers from running away with a win in Corvallis, Ore., the team will count on linebackers Chris Borland and Mike Taylor to wrap up Keeton when he escapes the pocket. When Keeton does drop back to throw, he is sure to test Michael Trotter – who is filling in for senior captain Shelton Johnson, sidelined with a broken arm – early and often.“They’re absolutely a very good team, especially their offense,” Borland said. “As far as stopping the quarterback, … there’s things we can do schematically but it comes down to tackling, comes down to guys playing sound within their own game.”If the Badgers are to avoid starting the season 1-2 – a tough concept for Wisconsin fans to swallow given preseason expectations – its offense must reunite behind an embattled offensive line. After failing to direct a scoring drive until the fourth quarter last weekend, O’Brien and his group of unproven receivers must find a way to move the ball down the field more efficiently.After suffering a chest injury against Oregon State, true freshman wide receiver Reggie Love may have to step in for No. 1 target Jared Abbrederis (Bielema said Abbrederis is probable after practice Thursday). Converting only two of its 14 third downs in the shocking loss, the Wisconsin offense can’t afford to wait until the final 10 minutes to challenge a blitz-hungry Aggies defense.“You’re not going to win a game when you go two for 14, no matter what,” Pedersen said. “That starts out with us obviously getting in shorter third downs – we can’t be at 3rd-and-10s, 3rd-and-15s.“When we get those 3rd-and-1s, we got to pat the big guys up front on the back and say, ‘Hey, we need to get this.’”While Ball and others admitted anger consumed the locker room after the Badgers dropped their second game of the year, players said practices gained new intensity as they prepared for Week 3. The mention of “urgency” omnipresent among coaches and players, Borland noted players dashed to the film room on Sunday and Monday.A new offensive line coach pacing the sidelines and a humbling loss still fresh in their memories, the Badgers understand what’s on the line this weekend. Bielema and company can only hope they took Pedersen’s message to heart.“We were all angry, we were all upset, disappointed, all kinds of negative emotions that I believe opened our eyes,” Ball said. “Which is why I believe we had a great practice today [that will] really send us forward back onto the track.”
The thing I love most about sports is that everyone can have an opinion about something pertaining to it. Oftentimes, there is no universal correct answer that solves each individual situation. Sports debates are great because they are open-ended.Sports bring people together. Two people who are completely different can be united by their bond over a team. Sports can spark conversations that otherwise would not have happened. It is the ultimate unifier.Of course, there are experts that have more knowledge about a particular sport than others, but even the experts don’t have all the solutions. No matter their gender, race, or intelligence, every person is entitled to have their own sports opinion and should not be criticized when they express them.President Donald Trump is subjected to a lot of scrutiny for his tweets. Ever since he ran for office, Trump’s use of Twitter constantly made headlines for the controversy it sparked. Just this Saturday, Trump sparked outrage again for a tweet about the World Series.“Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!” Trump tweeted.In recent years, Twitter has been the best social media outlet for people to express their sports viewpoints. My Twitter, for instance, is typically filled with opinions about my favorite soccer team, Liverpool F.C., and its performances. It is understood that any sports-related tweet is subject to other fans commenting their opinion. The sports Twitter world is harsh and often contains rude or nasty responses when someone tweets about a particular topic. While I do not advocate for cruelty toward others over their respective opinions, I understand that it is part of the world of sports in which debates can often-times get heated. The line, however, is crossed when a person tells another they should not have an opinion in the first place. Everyone should be able to speak their mind freely when it comes to sports.Trump’s tweet on Saturday night was met with a backlash from people who argued that he shouldn’t be tweeting about the game. Many people were adamant that they could care less about his opinion and that he shouldn’t even have one in the first place.The tweet followed a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue earlier in the day where 11 people died. Many said that his focus should be on the victims of the attack and not on the baseball game.“There was a mass shooting yesterday,” Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill explained to reporters when asked about Trump’s tweet. “The focus, in my opinion, of the president is to be on the country and not on moves that are made in a World Series game.”As a Jewish person, I agree that Trump needed to focus his attention on the shooting space. However, after a long day of work, everyone should be entitled to sit back and unwind. For many people, sports is the best outlet of doing so. At 11:46 p.m., anyone is entitled to take a break from his or her stressful work life, and enjoy watching a game of baseball if they choose to do so.This also begs the question of whether or not politics and sports should be separate from one another. Should the president be allowed to talk about sports?I think yes — but it’s more complicated. Many athletes have spoken out against Trump, so it is a double standard for them to speak out against politics. However, it is also expected that athletes take a more socially conscious stance and speak their minds about politics. LeBron James has been widely applauded for his outspoken rhetoric against Trump. This praise is justified.There should not be a double standard between politicians and athletes and whether they should be able to speak about one another. If the general expectation is that athletes speak up about political injustices, it would be unfair to say that presidents cannot speak about sports. As a kid, I loved watching former president Barack Obama make his March Madness bracket during the NCAA season. I would always use his bracket as a reference and try to compete against him. I like it when politicians are humanized through their love for sports.While I may not agree with Trump on many aspects, I know that he and I have a bond over our love for sports. While I may not agree with all of his sports opinions, I won’t neglect his right to have one.Robby Aronson is a sophomore majoring in journalism.

Associated Press Television News LIVE TV TCU starting quarterback Max Duggan could miss at least the start of the season because of a previously undetected, life-long health issue that was revealed during preseason testing and has kept him out of practice.Coach Gary Patterson wouldn’t reveal specifics about the issue, but said the sophomore quarterback was born with it. The undisclosed condition was discovered at a time when TCU has ramped up testing protocols amid the coronavirus pandemic.“Because of all the things we had in place, Max has a condition that he’s had his whole life, and we caught it,” Patterson said Thursday night. “Right now he’s in a good place and hopefully he’ll be getting back some time during the season. … I’m just glad we found it; I can say that.”Duggan started TCU’s final 10 games last season and played in all 12. He threw for 2,077 yards with 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, while rushing for 555 yards and six more scores.With Duggan out, sophomore Matthew Downing could start the season opener Sept. 12 against SMU. Downing completed 8 of 10 passes for 88 yards in four games for a Georgia as a freshman in 2018 before transferring to TCU, where he didn’t play as a redshirt last season.The Horned Frogs also have two other scholarship quarterbacks. Stephon Brown is a dual-threat transfer from Independence Community College, and freshman Eli Williams played only five games in his final high school season before a knee injury.Image credits: AP Last Updated: 22nd August, 2020 07:51 IST TCU QB Max Duggan Out After Tests Reveal Health Issue TCU starting quarterback Max Duggan could miss at least the start of the season because of a previously undetected, life-long health issue that was revealed during preseason testing and has kept him out of practice First Published: 22nd August, 2020 07:51 IST COMMENT WATCH US LIVE SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By FOLLOW US
