Lee sits out as USC gears up for fast-paced Wildcats

first_imgFollow Aubrey on Twitter @aubreykragen It’s been an eventful two weeks for USC football, but the Trojans are now putting their 62-41 loss to Arizona State and the firing of head coach Lane Kiffin behind them to focus on their upcoming opponent — the Arizona Wildcats.Welcome back · USC senior tailback Silas Redd is expected to make his long-awaited season debut on Thursday against Arizona. – Daily Trojan file photoInterim head coach Ed Orgeron will lead the team against Arizona in his first game as a head coach since 2007.On the mendMany a USC fan’s heart stopped last Saturday when junior wide receiver Marqise Lee was injured in the fourth quarter at Arizona State.Since being diagnosed with a knee sprain, Lee has been spotted on crutches and has not practiced.Orgeron is doubtful that Lee will return to practice this week, but didn’t rule him out completely for Thursday’s game, allowing a shred of hope for the Trojan faithful.“Thursday night’s a long time from now, and guys seem to make miraculous recoveries, so we’ll keep on working,” Orgeron said.If Lee sits out of Thursday’s game, the Trojans will be left with only two healthy wide receivers on scholarship — sophomore Nelson Agholor and redshirt sophomore Victor Blackwell.Perhaps the absence of Lee won’t doom the Trojans this Thursday, though. Agholor has proven capable of making big catches, and when redshirt junior tight ends Xavier Grimble and Randall Telfer have been targeted, they’ve been successful.The lack of depth at the receiver position might prompt more emphasis on the running game than usual, so senior tailback Silas Redd’s return couldn’t come at a better time.Redd’s knee surgery last spring has kept him out of the first five games of the season, but he wore full pads on Monday and looked explosive as he blew past defenders despite wearing a brace on his left knee.With Kiffin’s departure, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Clay Helton will serve as the playcaller, and time will tell whether he will utilize Redd as a boost to the already-impressive running game headlined by redshirt sophomore tailback Tre Madden and freshman tailback Justin Davis.Polar oppositesRedd’s energy in practice exemplified the atmosphere of the  newly installed Orgeron era.Though Kiffin usually remained stoic on the sidelines, there was never a dull moment at practice on Monday, as Orgeron barked out orders, and the players raved about the newfound intensity of the team.“Oh, we love it,” redshirt junior cornerback Josh Shaw said. “He brings a lot of energy in here and we feed off him … Energy is up about 10 times, you could say.”The team will need to maintain this energy in Thursday night’s game, as they face a formidable opponent in Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey, who is ranked fifth in the nation in rushing yards per game.As a sophomore last year, Carey led the nation in rushing yards, earning him a spot on multiple preseason awards watchlists for 2013, such the Walter Camp Award, given to the best college player of the year.USC’s No. 14th-ranked defense will do its best to slow down Carey and quarterback B.J. Denker, who has been a running threat this season, totaling 280 rushing yards and a team-high six touchdowns.MilestonesThe game against the Wildcats will represent a number of firsts for USC.It marks the first regular season, non-Thanksgiving Thursday night game ever hosted by the Trojans.But that note has been eclipsed by the fact that it will be the first time Orgeron will run out of the tunnel as USC’s head coach.Orgeron, who served as the head coach of Mississippi from 2005-2007 and has worked as the defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at USC since 2010, has no reservations heading into his first game calling the shots.“[There’s] a little pep in my step — I’m ready to go,” Orgeron said. “I’ve seen the guys … they fire me up. I mean, the eyes and the way they’re reacting, they’re smiling and walking around here enjoying practice.”The players explained their motivation to help Orgeron record his first win as USC’s interim head coach.“Everyone wants to come out here and play as hard as they can because everyone likes Coach O and they want to make sure we do good for him,” sophomore defensive end Leonard Williams said. “We just want to play up to his expectations and just have fun.”last_img read more

CEO’s to exchange ‘controversial’ World Cup views at Betting on Football

first_imgShare Gambling bosses preparing to appear at next week’s Betting on Football show have promised ‘controversy’ when they take to the stage for the headline CEO panel.  Taking place at 4pm on Thursday 22 March, Mr Green CEO Jesper Kärrbrink, mybet CEO Markus Peuler, BetBright CEO Marcus Brennan and The Football Pools managing director Conleth Byrne, will discuss the topic ‘Russian Revolution: Why the World Cup is key to future business’. The panel discussion, which will be moderated by Kambi head of content Gerard Starkey, will put operators’ World Cup strategies under the microscope, and looks set to challenge some commonly held views on the tournament. “I’ll probably have a controversial opinion on the potential effects of the World Cup on our business, so I’ll be curious to hear from the others panellists as well,” Peuler said.The mybet boss’ comment was supported by Mr Green CEO Kärrbrink, whose firm is getting ready for its first World Cup as a sportsbook operator having signed with Kambi in 2016. “I’m really looking forward to the whole Betting on Football event, which has developed into a ‘must’ in the industry – and extra so this year with World Cup just around the corner,” said Kärrbrink, who also has big tournament experience from his time as Svenska Spel CEO. “Hopefully our panel will have some controversial views on the World Cup and what it means for the industry,” he added. “Controversy is always good,” according to BetBright chief Brennan, who added: “I’m looking forward to this session because World Cups are major events and focal points and as such there is a natural expectation it should be a good lens into the broader approach to strategy and innovation in this sector.” The Football Pools MD Byrne, who spent more than 10 years at Ladbrokes, will use the panel to explore how the more modestly-sized operators can punch more than their weight when up against the industry behemoths. “Innovation around what will be the biggest World Cup ever is key for all brands, I am looking forward to discussing how dynamic, agile smaller operators can really make it work for them without the need for material marketing spend,” Byrne said.  Kambi’s Starkey will be asking the panelists to speak about World Cup impact, marketing, post-event strategy and product, among other things, as the big kick-off approaches. “The CEO World Cup session should be a must attend for anyone at the show,” Starkey said. “Speaking to the panellists in the lead up, they’ve promised to share their honest and valuable insights, as well as some controversial views on how the tournament may play out for the industry.”Tickets for the event are still available, to get them please go HEREThere are also still a few sponsorship and exhibition opportunities available – to enquire about these, please contact us on [email protected] Share Kambi and DraftKings agree on final closure terms July 24, 2020 Submit Kambi takes full control of LeoVegas sportsbook portfolio August 26, 2020 StumbleUpon Related Articles Simon Noy, Kambi: Revolutionising the bet builder July 20, 2020last_img read more
