Sacramento State drops CSU Rams 41-10 as Jay Norvell era remains winless after four games

On a blue bird afternoon inside a three-quarters full Canvas Stadium, many of the same dark clouds that hovered over the first three weeks of the Jay Norvell era returned.

A sluggish start that immediately put the CSU defense under the gun.

A freshman quarterback under pressure in the pocket — actually, two, once Clay Millen was knocked out of the game in the second quarter with an undisclosed injury after he was sacked for the 24th time this season.

And a CSU fanbase that’s grown frustrated with new head coach Jay Norvell — and let him know about it with multiple rounds of boos as his Rams remained winless with a 41-10 defeat to Sacramento State.

The loss was the 10th in a row for CSU, which is 0-4 for the first time since 2007 heading into its bye week.

With speckles of orange dotting the west side of the stadium, and the student section roughly three-quarters full to start the game, the Rams mustered just three points on their first four possessions.

Not the greatest Ag Day crowd you’ll ever see. Jay Norvell has some fans to win over. pic.twitter.com/SZWwOOFbiI

— Matt Schubert (@MattDSchubert) September 24, 2022

The lone highlight: a perfectly lofted 56-yard deep ball down the sideline from Millen to Tory Horton to the Sac State 7-yard line near the end of the first quarter. But even that ended on a downer, as three straight runs produced zero yards, and the Rams were forced to settle for a Michael Boyle field goal.

On the bright side, Sac State didn’t register its first sack until five minutes into the second quarter in a marked improvement over the first three weeks. But the cost of the sack, coming on third-and-long, was severe: Millen was knocked out of the game and another redshirt freshman, …read more

Magic training camp countdown: Will expectations, roles become clearer?

With the 2022-23 NBA season approaching, the Orlando Sentinel is unveiling a five-part series of Orlando Magic storylines to keep an eye on heading into training camp, which tips off Tuesday at their new state-of-the-art AdventHealth Training Center. Part one addressed whether the Magic did enough to turn around their shooting woes, part two focused on injury-related questions, part three touched on the rookies and part four addressed lineup experimentation.

Part Five: Accountability

As a team stocked with young talent in the first full season of a rebuild, the Magic were in player-evaluation mode in 2021-22.

That’ll still be the case, with Orlando entering 2022-23 as the league’s second-youngest team, only behind the Oklahoma City Thunder.

But how the evaluations are made will be different.

Fourteen of the Magic’s 16 players signed to standard contracts were on last year’s team. The other two, Paolo Banchero and Caleb Houstan, are rookies.

The continuity and familiarity allowed coach Jamahl Mosley and his staff to have a better idea of each player’s strengths and areas for improvement.

Now, they can elevate the expectations.

“A lot of it was evaluation last year,” Mosley said on the Magic’s official podcast, Pod Squad. “Seeing what guys were capable of, not capable of, the different combinations we put on the floor. It’s going to be a little easier when you see the same group of men who’ve been with you since last year. Now, I won’t have to say the same thing three times because you heard it all last year.

“All the things we did last year, there were some very good parts in that process where guys grew and got better. Now it’s a matter of what are you really grasping it and I can hold you to a different standard …read more

Yankees fan missed Judge’s 60th home run but survived stray bullet to the neck

He’s a die-hard Yankees fan who’s lucky to be alive.

Roody Nicolas, 39, had just driven his girlfriend home from last Tuesday night’s game in the Bronx when he took a stray bullet to the back of his neck, with doctors telling the fortunate victim he could easily be paralyzed or dead.

“I heard the gunshots, they were real close,” Nicolas told the Daily News on Saturday. “Then a gunshot shattered my back window and hit me in the neck. I felt like I was in another dimension. I kept screaming, ‘My head! My head!’

“And my girlfriend was wondering what was going on because she didn’t see any blood. Then the blood just started.”

Adding insult to his injury, the big Aaron Judge booster left Yankee Stadium before the ninth inning and missed the slugger’s historic 60th home run as the Bronx Bombers rallied for a 9-8 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

“It was not a good night,” Nicolas told The News. “If I stayed, I could’ve avoided the bullet. It was a double-whammy.”

The Queens man, who works as a senior analyst for business intelligence at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, said everything happened quickly before the bullet struck him from behind shortly after midnight Wednesday while he was parked with his girlfriend outside her Brooklyn home.

“I mean, when they came on the scene no one saw anything,” he said. “It was just very quick. [My girlfriend] said she saw someone running after the shots.”

The NYPD said there were no arrests and the investigation into the shooting was ongoing.

Nicolas, who still has the bullet lodged between his first and second vertebrae, recalled a doctor at Kings County Medical Center explaining how fortunate he was to be alive and able to get around.

“The doctor told me if you get hit there, you’re either paralyzed or dead — but …read more

Yankees Notebook: Zack Britton back in action after being sidelined more than a year

Zack Britton had a lot to get used to Saturday. It’s been 13 months since he had been on a big-league mound. The lefty had never used the PitchCom system before and he is still trying to find his finite command with his sinker.

“Very anxious, you know, warming up and stuff. Good to get that one out of the way,” said Britton, who had Tommy John surgery last year. “I felt fine afterwards. So now it’s about obviously putting together good outings and improving the command. The stuff was actually OK.

“Yeah, it’s about getting back to being who I want to be, throwing late in games and contributing, having good innings.”

Saturday was a little shaky for Britton, pitching in the sixth inning of the Yankees’ 7-5 win over the Red Sox at Yankees Stadium.

Britton walked Rafael Devers, gave up a single to Xander Bogaerts and struck out Alex Verdugo. He then walked Kike Hernandez and Triston Casas to bring in a run.

“That’s a hold situation. That’s a tight game. And you know, the heart of their lineup. That’s the situation I want to be in,” Britton said. “So, yeah, that was a really good test. Obviously, I want to be a lot better going forward. That’s the plan.”

Britton has a little over a week (11 games) now to get himself back into that shape and earn a spot on the postseason roster. It’s not as daunting a task as it seems with the Yankees bullpen needing someone to step up and take those late-game innings.

Former closer Aroldis Chapman has struggled and the Yankees have been reluctant to let him pitch to the heart of the lineup. Clay Holmes, who stepped in to be an All-Star closer in the first half, has lost that job. Wandy Peralta is on …read more

High school football: Kenwood vs. Morgan Park game ends with 18-20 players ejected after large post-game fight

Morgan Park’s Orlando James (26) holds off an altercation between one of his teammates and Kenwood’s Isaac Saffold (44).

Kirsten Stickney/For the Sun-Times

One of Kenwood’s key players lost control of his emotions in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game against Morgan Park at Lane Stadium. 

He was overwhelmed by the pressure, by his team’s failure in a crucial moment and it all became too much. There were tears and screams and he was emotionally unable to continue playing.

That same anger and frustration boiled up in dozens of players on both teams at the final whistle. Multiple fights broke out all over the field as Chicago Public Schools security and coaches and administrators from both schools struggled to calm things down.

The chaotic scene lasted about ten minutes. According to Morgan Park coach Chris James approximately 18-20 players total from both teams were ejected during the course of the game and due to the post-game fight. James said he expects CPS to “levy some heavy suspensions.”

Morgan Park beat Kenwood 22-13. Both teams are loaded with college prospects and just outside the Super 25 rankings. Multiple media outlets were at Lane Stadium to cover one of the best Public League matchups of the season. 

But the game was ugly from the start. The first quarter was marred by multiple unsportsmanlike penalties and it deteriorated from there. 

A Morgan Park player punched a Kenwood player (in the helmet) after a play with 8:37 remaining. That set things off. An adult that wasn’t a member of the coaching staff ran onto the field and was removed by security. 

There was a long delay while CPS Sports Director David …read more

GOP Sen. Mike Lee holds a narrow edge over independent Evan McMullin in the Utah Senate race: poll

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah.

Mike Lee leads Evan McMullin 36%-34% in a new Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll.
The Utah Senate race is shaping up to be one of the most competitive statewide contests in years.
The key to victory is the support of the state’s moderate voters, per Hinckley director Jason Perry.

Republican Sen. Mike Lee holds a narrow lead over independent candidate Evan McMullin in the Utah Senate race, in what is shaping up to be one of the most competitive statewide races in recent memory in the longtime GOP stronghold.

In the latest Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll — among registered voters — Lee earned the support of 36% of respondents, while 34% backed McMullin and 13% opted for another candidate. Per the polling results, 16% of respondents also indicated that they were undecided.

Among likely voters, the race remains largely unchanged, with Lee leading McMullin 37% to 34%, with 16% of respondents stating that they were undecided.

The poll surveyed 815 registered voters from Sept. 3 through Sept. 21 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.43 percentage points.

Jason Perry, the director of the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah, told Deseret News that the polling indicated that a swath of moderates — who are still not sold on giving Lee a third term in Washington, DC — are the key to the incumbent winning in November and are also critical to McMullin if he is to upset the Republican lawmaker.

“Mike Lee continues to be in the driver’s seat, but the most interesting aspect of this poll is who the undecided voters are — moderates and liberals,” Perry told the publication. “Mike Lee needs some of the moderates and Evan McMullin needs all the moderates and …read more

Kiszla: Every loss reminds Nathaniel Hackett and Kyle Shanahan it’s not cool to be coach’s son who fails to succeed

Nathaniel Hackett and Kyle Shanahan are fortunate sons. Without their famous fathers, would either coach be where they are in the NFL today?

“I have so much respect for Kyle. He’s awesome,” said Hackett, who will match wits against Shanahan in prime time Sunday, when the Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers remind us how powerful a role nepotism can play in the coaching ranks. “He’s a coach’s kid, which you’re always a little biased for any coach’s kid.”

Well, pro football certainly has shown favor to these two sons of the game.

The current head coaches of the Broncos and Niners grew up in the sport. Paul Hackett was a football lifer, getting the chance along the way to lead the USC Trojans and Pittsburgh Steelers. Mike Shanahan, architect of Super Bowl victories and a proud member of the Ring of Fame, needs no introduction in this dusty old cowtown. When the apples of their eyes fell from the family tree, Nathaniel and Kyle landed huge advantages in the coaching fraternity.

Although there’s no doubt young Shanahan and the junior Hackett labored tirelessly in the 24/7 grind of this crazy sport, it’s fair to ask how much bias played in their rise up the ranks.

I can’t help but wonder: If Eric Bieniemy had been born the son of a famous football coach instead of winning a national championship as a player at the University of Colorado and earning a Super Bowl ring as a top assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs, would he have the opportunity to be in charge of his own NFL team right now?

Back in January, when Hackett was introduced as the 18th man in franchise history to be entrusted with winning games for the Broncos, he saluted his father and cited family history as a major factor in his …read more

Luis Robert’s season is over after the Chicago White Sox place the center fielder on the IL with a wrist injury

Luis Robert will not return this season after the Chicago White Sox placed the center fielder on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a sprained left wrist.

Before the announcement, Robert had started just six of the team’s 26 games since Aug. 26 because of a bruised left hand, left wrist soreness and a Sept. 2-3 stint on the paternity list.

The IL stint comes with 11 games remaining for the Sox, who entered Saturday eight games back in the American League Central.

“Luis, similar to a handful of other guys out there, deserves a lot of credit for trying to fight through the pain and contribute as much as he could over the past couple of weeks,” general manager Rick Hahn said Saturday.

“Given the fact the discomfort seems to be persisting, I think you’ve all seen it as various at-bats and games have gone on, and the way games have played out the past week, we feel it’s better just to shut him down and get him completely healthy, which is expected to occur with the passage of time.”

Robert exited an Aug. 12 game against the Detroit Tigers with a sprained left wrist after attempting to steal second base in the sixth inning. He returned to the lineup Aug. 20.

Robert swung one-handed during a couple of his at-bats Aug. 25 against the Orioles in Baltimore and didn’t make another start until Sept. 5 against the Mariners in Seattle.

The next night, he got hit while swinging at the first pitch of his second-inning at-bat against the Mariners. He continued the at-bat after being evaluated by the training staff and did not swing again, eventually striking out looking.

He took two strikes and a ball in his fifth-inning at-bat, then swung with one hand and missed to strike …read more

Column: Aaron Judge’s ‘clean’ pursuit of the HR mark can’t match the hype of the 1998 Sammy Sosa-Mark McGwire race

Before a game at old Busch Stadium in September 1998, St. Louis Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire declined to speak at a news conference about his pursuit of Roger Maris’ home run record, stiffing hundreds of media members.

Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, who then was on McGwire’s heels in the great home run race, happily sat down with a dozen reporters in Pittsburgh the next day and answered question after question about his pursuit of Maris.

Sosa told reporters McGwire should be pardoned for stiffing them, saying he was simply more comfortable dealing with the media than his nemesis.

“I’m a little more Rico Suave,” Sosa said, referring to a 1990 song.

Twenty-four years later, New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge didn’t have to worry about handling the media crush as he chased Maris American League record of 61 home runs.

Judge normally doesn’t do pregame interviews, and a Yankees media relations staffer ended the slugger’s postgame session after 2 minutes, 15 seconds following Thursday’s homerless game against the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

It’s a different world for the media — and for baseball.

While dozens of reporters from around the nation followed McGwire and Sosa around the country in September 1998, only a few national media members have been in New York chronicling Judge’s chase.

Fewer newspapers, tighter budgets and the dwindling of the species commonly known as the “national baseball writer” have made Judge’s life easier as he attempts to make history.

“I haven’t seen many people who aren’t usually here,” New York Times baseball columnist Tyler Kepner told me, pointing to a handful of national reporters on hand for Thursday’s game. “It’s not really an overflow crowd, and I can’t imagine that it wears at all on Judge.”

Like many star players, Judge generally doesn’t make himself available at his locker before …read more

Aaron Judge stuck on 60 as Anthony Rizzo, 2 others homer as Yankees beat Red Sox 7-5

The Yankees got three home runs Saturday to beat the Red Sox 7-5 at Yankee Stadium, but the sold-out crowd of 47,611 left the ballpark disappointed. For the fourth straight game, the Bombers’ slugger Aaron Judge did not hit a home run, remaining one away from tying the 61 year old American League and franchise record of 61.

With homers from Gleyber Torres, Oswaldo Cabrera and Anthony Rizzo, the Yankees (93-58) won their sixth straight game and closed within three games of clinching the AL East division title.

For the first time since he hit his 60th home run of the season, Judge was challenged by a pitcher. Nick Pivetta went at him with three fastballs in the first inning, striking him out. In the third, Pivetta came with three fastballs, dropped in a knuckle curve and then got him to fly out to center on another fastball. In the fifth, Pivetta was a little more cautious but did challenge him with a 2-1 fastball down the middle which the slugger was late on and fouled off.

They battled to a full count before Judge walked after seven pitches. In the seventh, with the shadows over home plate making it even harder for the hitters to see, John Schreiber used his sinker to set up his slider to battle back from 2-0 to 2-2. Judge fouled off two hanging sliders before John Schreiber got him on a checked swing at a 93-mile-an-hour fastball. That was the first time in this stretch of waiting that Judge showed any emotions. He muttered to himself as he started walking back and waved his hand dismissively at first base umpire Chris Conroy who had called him out on the checked swing.

It has been 18 late appearances since Judge hit No. 60 on Tuesday night.

As careful as Schreiber …read more

UCLA runs all over Colorado to improve to 4-0

BOULDER, Colo. – Dorian Thompson-Robinson couldn’t miss, Zach Charbonnet looked sharp and the UCLA Bruins got an important win ahead of their showdown with Washington next week.

Thompson-Robinson was 19-for-23 passing for 234 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 56 yards in less than three quarters of play in UCLA’s 45-17 win over the Colorado Buffaloes in the Pac-12 Conference opener Saturday.

Charbonnet rushed for 104 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries in an efficient and explosive performance Saturday. UCLA (4-0, 1-0) averaged 8.9 yards per play before playing more conservative in the fourth quarter and amassed 515 total yards to break a three-game losing streak in Boulder.

Colson Yankoff had two short touchdown catches and Matt Sykes also had a TD reception for the Bruins, who held the ball for just 25 minutes, 53 seconds.

The defense was also sharp against the offensively challenged Buffaloes (0-1, 0-4). Laiatu Latu had three of the team’s five sacks and a forced fumble and Carl Jones Jr. had an interception that led to Ethan Garbers’ three-yard TD pass to Yankoff on the first play of the fourth quarter.

Garbers was 3-for-6 passing for 32 yards and the touchdown.

UCLA’s defense did that without defensive linemen Jay Toia (injury) and Gabriel Murphy (ejection) for most of the game. Murphy was tossed for targeting with 5:59 left in the first quarter when he hit quarterback Owen McCown just after he released a pass, drove him into the turf and McCown’s helmet came off.

Colorado held the ball for 6:05 on its first drive while it took UCLA just 7:35 to scored three touchdowns and take a 21-3 lead.

Thompson-Robinson connected with Sykes on a 24-yard TD pass on the first possession and Charbonnet had scoring runs of 35 and 13 yards.

Costly penalties kept drives alive for the Buffaloes, including two …read more
