But it is Forest where Bohinen would like to return.”That’s the dream, yes,” he told VG.”It would have been most fun if I had the opportunity with Nottingham Forest. But then I must probably have to do a little more to prove myself than training Norwegian teams between the two top divisions.”I have a lot of different experience, but I’ve only worked as a football coach for seven years, so I got late into the job I like best.” last_img read more

Larry Bird To Step Down As Pacers President

Larry Bird is expected to step down as president of the Indiana Pacers, the Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday.Team owner Herb Simon is scheduled to meet with Bird on Tuesday to plan Bird’s exit from the team, the Star reported. Last month, Bird told The Associated Press, he’d stay put as the Pacers team president for a few more years — if that’s what team owner Herb Simon wants.“I’d do it today if Herbie was here,” Bird said last month, drawing laughter. “We’ve got kids working out, we’ve got six free agents, we’ve got a lot going on right now. Obviously, I want to sit down with Herb as quickly as possible. I don’t like this (questions) at all. I’d like a three-year deal, but we have a handshake agreement. It’s hard coming in here and not having the answers.”

Ohio State football fall camp a learning experience for young players

He added it’s a chance to help the younger players get ready for their first go around as a Buckeye.“Just to help guide the freshmen…through camp,” Grant said. “When they get down, you know, pick them up, hug them up a little bit, show them that everything is good.”Grant, for one, said he didn’t try to enforce any power as a senior, even when it came to bed selection in the room.“I went up there and he (Lattimore) already called the window, he had his stuff on there, so it’s okay,” he said. “As long as we both get a bed, that’s good.”Junior offensive lineman Jacoby Boren said the same wasn’t the case when it comes to his pairing with freshman offensive lineman Kyle Trout, but added he wouldn’t have a set of rules for the room.“We don’t really have any rules,” Boren said. “I just took the bed closest to the window, so other than that we’re good.”At the end of the day, Heuerman, who is rooming with redshirt-freshman tight end Marcus Baugh, said the hotel is only a small portion of fall camp. He said when the players get back to the hotel after practice, they spend about half an hour awake before it’s lights out to get ready for another day.Heuerman also had a warning for the younger players, saying the first few days of camp didn’t touch on the “hard stuff.”“A lot of those younger guys, they don’t know what’s coming,” he said. “Two-a-days starts on Saturday I think. Once you move into the hotel it gets real.”Heuerman added that the players have to turn in their car keys during camp, and in years past had to turn in their cell phones during the day.Senior linebacker Curtis Grant said, once you move into the hotel, football takes over your entire life. He added it will be a difficult adjustment for any players going through their first fall camp.“It’s going to be a tough time in their life, because they’re stuck in the hotel, you can’t do anything,” Grant said. “By next week, everybody is going to hate their life because they can’t go anywhere.”Redshirt-sophomore safety Tyvis Powell said the time in the hotel can also be used to make sure the young players are prepared, and still preparing, to step on the field once the season starts. Powell is rooming with freshman safety Erick Smith, and said he’ll be making sure Smith knows his assignments inside and out.“I know yesterday he was struggling a little bit on some plays, so basically I’m just going to kind of quiz him, make sure he’s got the playbook,” Powell said.While fall camp is certainly a new experience for the younger players, there are still some veterans going through it from a different perspective.Senior offensive lineman Joel Hale is participating in his fourth fall camp as a Buckeye, but just his first on offense. Hale spent his first three seasons as a defensive lineman, where he saw extensive playing time last season. He said it was a risk to make the switch, and has to be ready to go everyday no matter what, even as a senior.“I mean, I’m fighting for my life right now, I’ve got to fight everyday and I’m a senior,” Hale said. “That’s hard.”After Thursday’s practice, the Buckeyes are scheduled to have 14 more days of camp. Two-a-day sessions are set for six of those days, with the last coming on Aug. 20 while camp is scheduled to end Aug. 23 –– their last day in the hotel.OSU’s season is scheduled to start Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Wrestling Kyle Snyder enacts his revenge defeats Adam Coon for Big Ten

Ohio State’s Kyle Snyder wrestles Steven Holloway in the dual-meet against Iowa on Jan. 21 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorEAST LANSING, Michigan — Ohio State senior Kyle Snyder won his third Big Ten championship in dramatic fashion, earning his spot back atop the wrestling world at heavyweight. It took a second sudden victory round between No. 2 seed Kyle Snyder and Michigan’s No. 1 seed Adam Coon. Snyder finally hits on a shot, grabbing Coon’s leg to drag the 6-foot-6, 285-pound wrestler to the ground. Snyder chased him to the edge of the mat before bringing him down again for the takedown and 4-2 win.The only scoring up until that point was a pair of escapes from both of them.The win will likely solidify Snyder’s No. 1 national ranking going into NCAAs. With the win, Snyder becomes the fourth wrestler in school history with three Big Ten championships, including his teammate Nathan Tomasello.It seems odd that a wrestler as accomplished as Snyder still feels there is much at stake with the result of a single match. But expectations are obviously adjusted for a top-ranked wrestler. The person who has proven the most over the course of his career, had the most to prove going into the finals. That summed up the atmosphere at the Breslin Center Sunday evening, and Snyder did what he came to East Lansing, Michigan, to prove. read more

ACLU Says State Enforcement On Political Signage Is Unconstitutional

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The ACLU of Alaska, and an independent expenditure group Dunleavy for Alaska have filed a joint suit against the State of Alaska’s enforcement against political signs near roadways. According to multiple media reports quoting DOT officials, this was part of a planned “sweep” of signs near roadways. The lawsuit states that photo evidence clearly shows this sweep specifically targeted political signs while leaving adjacent non-political signs untouched. Representatives with DOT have not commented on the pending lawsuit. In a release from the ACLU, on July 10, the Alaska Department of Transportation (DOT) sent a notice to Dunleavy for Alaska threatening financial and criminal sanctions for posting political signs within the view of certain roadways. The lawsuit follows a state Department of Transportation decision to enforce or remove hundreds of campaign signs prior to this week’s primary that were deemed in violation of the state law. The law calls for a $50 fine for each violation. The suit seeks to immediatly block enforcement of a state statute barring political signs near roadways and asking for those rules to be ‘struck down’ as unconstitutional. Alaska Statute 19.25.105 prohibits “outdoor advertising” on or within 660 feet of state rights-of-way for interstate, primary, and secondary highways within Alaska. last_img read more
