DeGale eyes rematch with ‘chicken’ Groves

first_imgJames DeGale believes his European title challenge could pave the way for a rematch against George Groves.DeGale will take on champion Piotr Wilczewski of Poland next month, with the date and venue expected to be confirmed on Monday.It will be DeGale’s first fight since he lost his British super-middleweight title – and his unbeaten record – against fellow west Londoner Groves in May.DeGale said: “It’s been seven or eight weeks since the Groves fight. I’ve been on holiday, got it out of my system and have moved on.“I thought I won that fight – loads of people did. I can’t believe someone can win a title by throwing so few punches. Every time I hit him I hurt him, and he ran around the ring like a chicken.“I did learn loads in that fight. The main thing is that I will never, ever allow someone to nick a fight off me like that again. I fought the first eight rounds like it was a sparring session.“Hopefully now I’ll get that European title – it won’t be a walkover, it’ll be a tough fight. Then hopefully Groves will want to fight and won’t be a chicken. I just hope Groves keeps winning – that’s the real question.“After my next fight, if bigger and better things come along I’ll take that. But if the public want it [a rematch], and Groves wants it, then fine. But Groves needs me more than I need him.Harlesden’s DeGale lost against Groves on a split decision“I want a rematch. I wanted it straight after the fight and told [promoter] Frank Warren that. But Groves and his people didn’t want it.”Wilczewski has lost only once in 30 fights and is ranked number two by the World Boxing Organisation.The bout has been billed as a crossroads for DeGale, 25, as he cannot afford another defeat at this stage of his career.He hopes to follow in the footsteps of Amir Khan, who bounced back from his first professional loss to become a world champion.But unlike Khan, he is determined to resist calls to make wholesale changes and move to the United States.He said: “People have said I should change trainer and move to America – do what Amir Khan did. But I’m thinking ‘so if I’d got that decision against Groves, you wouldn’t say that?’ It doesn’t make sense.“It was such a close fight and I learned the lessons from that, so I don’t need to make those changes. I won’t make those mistakes again.”last_img read more

Animal and Plant Tricks

first_imgThere’s no end of amazing tricks in the living world – adaptations that aid their success.  Finding them is one thing.  Explaining them is another.Electric webs:  There’s electricity in the air around spider webs, Science Now says in “Spider Silk Grabs Electrically Charged Insects in Midair.”  Flying insects pick up static eletricity as they fly (a honeybee can pick up 200 volts).  Spider silks get a charge out of greeting the food service, flexing up to 2 mm at a fast rate of 7 m/s when the prey approaches.  More study is needed, Live Science cautioned, to see if all flying insects, such as the spiders’ preferred diet of flies, pick up static electricity.Jumping fish:  A swamp dweller called the mangrove rivulus has a unique hopping method, Live Science reports.  Unlike the largemouth bass that flexes into a C-shape and jumps but gets nowhere fast, the rivulus does a unique tail flip that sends it on the path to progress (see video clip in the article).  On land, the mostly-hermaphroditic fish can live for up to two months feeding on insects while absorbing oxygen through its skin.Self-cleaning guillemot eggs:  The eggs of the guillemot, a seabird, are covered in small conical pimples that shed water, the BBC News reported.  This helps them avoid the saltwater and detritus in the birds’ crowded colonies.  The roughness of the shell may also give the eggs a better foothold on the rocky cliffs where the females lay their eggs.Bat battery:  Using elastic energy stored in their wing tendons, fruit bats get better mileage, Science Daily reports.  When taking off, this “recycled energy” stored from previous wing flaps gives them an extra boost.  This ability is apparently unique among small mammals.  The article ends with a touch of biomimetics: “This research will likely have relevance for the development of autonomous micro aircrafts and potentially also amphibious search and rescue vehicles.”Jerboa jumps:  Jerboas are little desert rodents that look like a cross between a mouse and a kangaroo (see picture in Science Daily).  The small bipedal jumpers have not been studied much.  Science Daily says that their hops, skips and jumps allow them to compete with four-footed rodents in Old World deserts.  The unpredictability of their trajectories gives the jerboas a way to coexist in the niche occupied by quadrupedal rodents.RNA regulates flowering time:  There’s new insight into how perennial plants know they are old enough to flower, and that the right season has arrived.  An article on Science Daily reports that “Alpine Rock Cress Uses a Ribonucleic Acid to Measure Its Age and Tell When It’s the Right Time to Flower.”  The concentration of a small RNA “works like an hourglass,” the article explains.One can hypothesize about the origins of these adaptations by considering horizontal and vertical axes of information.  The horizontal axis represents variations of existing genetic information.  The vertical axis would require gain or loss of information.  With that in mind, we might suspect that the guillemot egg did not require intelligent design, since it represents accentuation of existing dimples in the eggshell.  The most-dimpled ones survived the salty, steep environment to bring a new generation of birds, whereas others were more susceptible to damage or falling.  The RNA hourglass in flowering plants, though, appears to be a system that required programming from the beginning.  There’s nothing about a particular small RNA molecule that would signal a plant to flower unless other systems exist to measure its concentration and use that metric to signal downstream processes.  Try your skill with each organism to see where on the axes the adaptations might lie, realizing that scientific explanations are not necessarily part of science, especially when speculation exceeds testability.  Avoid just-so stories.

Mike Gundy’s Toughest Recruiting Challenge Won’t Be A Football Player

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Mike Gundy’s recruiting prowess is put to the test each day. As a college head football coach, if you’re not recruiting players, someone else is likely out-hustling you. Such is the business — and grind — of being responsible for a college football program.With experience reigning over the OSU program since 2005, Gundy knows a thing or two about recruiting. By my count, he’s signed more than 300 prospects from the high school and junior college ranks since 2005. From J.W. Walsh to Ryan McBean, to Tylan Wallace and Ryan Simmons. He’s recruited all across the country and even in Canada in search of men to become future Cowboys.But even his most difficult challenges can’t sniff his newest recruiting battle: Filling his now-vacant offensive line position.As the Tulsa World’s Mark Cooper reported on Friday, OSU has parted ways with Greg Adkins after just two seasons. Adkins is the latest in a long line of offensive line coaches the school has cycled through since long-time Gundy assistant Joe Wickline was poached by Texas. Whoever Gundy hires next will be his fourth offensive line coach in five seasons.2014: Joe Wickline left after serving under Gundy for nine seasons2014-2015: Bob Connelly left for USC after one season2015-2017: Greg Adkins left after being relieved of dutiesThe once-struggling position group in 2015 soared to new heights in 2016, jumping from more than 1,600 yards on the ground to 2,221 rushing yards in the 2016 season.Yet it was recruiting misses that defined Adkins’ tenure at OSU. Last year, it was Klein Oak offensive tackle Ryan McCollum who flipped his pledge from OSU to Texas A&M in December just two months before signing day. One recruit, Tyler Brown, landed at TU after leaving the program. And his recruiting gem of 2015, Tramonda Moore, is at a junior college.And this year, it was three prospects: Dan Moore, Derek Kerstetter, and Adrian Wolford who de-committed from OSU and later flipped to Texas schools. Kerstetter and Moore flipped to Texas and Texas A&M, respectively, doing so again in the month of December.“It’s extremely difficult to make up ground in the third week of December at that particular position,” Mike Gundy said on signing day. “Especially on a four-year player. Sometimes you can grab one on a two-year. That was the most difficult aspect of this class.”Because of the rash of de-commitments, Oklahoma State signed just one offensive lineman, junior college prospect Arlington Hambright, despite saying the goal was to sign four. Most notably, it added zero high school recruits.During Adkins’ two year run, only three four-year linemen, Teven Jenkins, Dylan Galloway, and Matt Kegel, have stuck. All three redshirted in 2016.With an aging offensive line group and a pressing need to get young talent to bolster the position group, Mike Gundy’s next hire may be more difficult than ever. Given the longevity of OSU O-line coaches in recent memory, and the undeniable pressure by OSU fans to expect greatness not only on the field, but on the recruiting trail, Gundy’s recruiting skills will be tested like never before.There is an upside to the position, without question. The offense was top-20 in 2016. It returns a Freshman All-American tailback, a future pro at quarterback, and a plethora of talented wide receivers that will take the pressure off the running game.But the running game — and the offensive line — must produce. And given the current state of the offensive line group, the lack of young four-year players to develop, it’s a unique and tricky situation for whomever Gundy elects to fill the position. And it’s a move that could define not only the success of the running game, but his success as head coach over the next few years. Or shorter.If it seems like a lot of pressure, it is. But don’t count out Mike Gundy to find the right hire. He’s been in tricky situations like this before.“That’s one area for us that is difficult to hold just because the pool to choose from isn’t as big and everybody’s picking at it,” said Gundy of recruiting future offensive linemen. “We have to step out of the box a little bit there and try to find ways to overcome it. We always have, and we will figure out a way.”last_img read more

100 Days of Summer: Get to Know No. 91 DeQuinton Osborne

It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. As we continue our summer-long countdown of Oklahoma State’s roster, we focus today on a big-time transfer who’s already made a big impact at OSU.How he got to OSUA three-star defensive tackle out of Grand Prairie, Texas (South Grand Prairie HS), Osborne spent one redshirt year at Missouri before he voluntarily left the program. He spent the next two years at Kilgore JC where he quickly made a name as one of the more sought-after junior college prospects in the country.Osborne eventually signed of letter of intent to play at Baylor but with Art Briles’ dismissal, he was released from any ties to the university. OSU D-line coach Joe Bob Clements saw his chance to add quality depth, and Osborne chose to come to Stillwater.What he’s done in StillwaterOsborne made an immediate impact upon arrival in 2016. He played in 11 games and was a key part of the defensive tackle rotation. At 6-foot and 305 pounds, Osborne is a load. But what jumps off the tape most is his athleticism.He showcased that in this perfect play against Kansas. He drops back into the lane of this ill-advised pass, makes the play and then tiptoes the sideline before obliterating 5-foot-10, 200-pound Jayhawk running back Taylor Martin.Osborne recorded 12 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, two QB hurries and that memorable interception.Role in 2017With the departure of mainstay starters Vincent Taylor and Mote Maile, Osborne will likely have the opportunity to earn a starting role. With Mike Gundy’s prediction of hockey-like line changes, the Cowboys will rotate at least two deep. Expect to see a lot of Osborne, even with the depth the Cowboys enjoy.Noteworthy Stats and highlightsRecorded three tackles, 2.5 sacks and a QB hurry against Iowa State in 2016. That, and of course the aforementioned “Rock Chalk makes a poor road block” sequence.last_img read more

Where OSU Football Decommitments Are Now (Part 2)

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Part 1 of our series covering where OSU football decommitments have landed through the years included the likes of three 4-star receivers flipping elsewhere and enjoying successful careers, but part 2—the final part, for now—might be even more difficult to thumb through as the wounds are still fairly fresh.Here’s where football recruits who decommitted from OSU from 2015 to 2018 landed and how their young careers have fared.2015Ronald Jones, 4-star running back: After hanging on to the commitment of McKinney North standout Ronald Jones throughout the football season, the four-star standout had second thoughts late in the process after USC and Notre Dame came calling. He backed away from OSU in December before signing day and committed to USC at the Under Armour All-American game the same day OSU rolled over Washington in the Cactus Bowl in 2015. Jones has 2,069 rushing yards through two seasons and is slated to start for the Trojans in 2017.AdChoices广告Kenneth Edison-McGruder, 3-star safety: McGruder committed to OSU in the summer before signing day but decommitted following an offer and visit from Nebraska. A month later, McGruder made an official visit to OSU and re-committed to the Cowboys, where he’s been in the fold since. McGruder has played spot duty at safety but has switched to linebacker, and shows good promise as a contributor in 2017.Jaylon Lane, 3-star cornerback: Lane was a four-star recruit at the time he was committed to OSU and appeared next in line to replace Justin Gilbert, but he decommitted from OSU after the school pulled his scholarship following an incident at school in which he threw a calculator and overturned tables during class in a temper tantrum. Lane went the JUCO route, instead, and is set to make his Division I debut next season with Texas Tech.Joshua Jones, 3-star offensive tackle: Houston offensive lineman Joshua Jones pulled a fast one on signing day by flipping from Gundy to Tom Herman in Houston after a six-month long commitment to the Pokes. Herman sold him on staying home and leading the H-Town movement, and has been a steady contributor for the Cougars, starting in all 13 games last season.2016Tyrell Alexander, 3-star receiver: Like the aforementioned Edison-McGruder, Alexander had a difficult time deciding on his destination. He originally committed during the spring game in 2015, backed away from OSU in the summer, then re-committed in November of the same year. He stayed loyal despite a late offer from Oregon. Alexander redshirted last season and has a high upside as a speedy receiver after transitioning from high school quarterback at Lancaster.Tyrell Alexander could take on an expanded role in 2017. [PFB]Nick Starkel, 3-star quarterback: Like Alexander, Starkel committed early in the process but had a lackluster senior season that had OSU cooling on the now Texas A&M Aggie. Starkel decommitted after preferred walk-on quarterback Nyc Burns joined the fold, in part, I believe, because Burns’ elite high school production scared him off. Starkel hasn’t been a factor in Aggieville but could compete for playing time next season.Jonathan Marshall, 3-star defensive end: Of all the decommitments, Marshall’s was the most damaging. The three-star defensive end was locked in with OSU but a late official visit to Arkansas changed his mind. He later decommitted on Twitter by saying that Fayetteville is “where it’s at.” He’s been a bit player in Arkansas thus far.Ryan McCollum, 3-star offensive lineman: McCollum was the first in a long line of offensive linemen who later committed to Texas A&M under coach Greg Adkins. He redshirted last season.2017Levi Draper, 4-star linebacker: Draper decommitted from OSU shortly after a Bedlam bludgeoning and committed to the Sooners, but his original commitment led some to believe he committed to the Pokes in spite because of OU’s lack of early interest in him.Levi Draper went from a Cowboy to a Sooner.Adrian Wolford, 3-star offensive lineman: Wolford decommitted from OSU and signed with Texas A&M.Derek Kerstetter, 3-star offensive lineman: Kerstetter decommitted from OSU and later committed and signed with Texas after late interest from the Longhorns.Dan Moore, 3-star offensive lineman: Moore decommitted from OSU in December, and committed to Texas A&M after the Aggies pulled the trigger with a late offer.Nelson Mbanasor, 3-star defensive end: Mbanasor backed away from his OSU pledge to join Texas Tech.Tyon Merchant, 3-star cornerback: OSU cooled on Merchant in recruiting and he later ended up signing with Sam Houston State.Spencer Misko, 3-star tight end: Like Merchant, OSU cooled on Misko late in the process and shifted their attention elsewhere. Kansas State signed him in February as a defensive end.Ty Thomas, 3-star safety: The son of former Texas Tech safety Bart Thomas, Ty had a change of heart in the process and signed with Arizona State. He was originally the first pledge of OSU’s 2017 class.Tyler Henderson, 3-star tight end: Henderson flipped from OSU to Baylor late in the process last cycle, probably because Baylor has a long track record of integrating tight ends into its offense.2018So far, so good. I can think of only one explanation.Mike Gundy hair update: Full-blown American Glory. #okstate ?? pic.twitter.com/9fxZSrItFU— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) July 5, 2017last_img read more

Darius Curry’s Move to Safety Proves Fluidity in Secondary

first_imgJerel MorrowZa’Carrius GreenDarius CurryAJ Green Which isn’t great but also means Spencer and cornerbacks coach Tim Duffie think at least one of the young corners is ready to start. Curry isn’t a show-stopper. During spring practice, Ramon Richards classified Curry as a “technical” player who focuses on his craft. That sounded nice, particularly at a position with excess athleticism and not enough experience.AdChoices广告This also shows that almost every player in the secondary can be moved.The pros of that: Easy replacements in case of injuriesBetter coverage optionsMore versatile packagesThe cons:Might seem like scramblingCan look foolish if the talent doesn’t translateIncreasingly impossible to master either positionThe last one was Spencer’s explanation for moving Curry.“I pulled him in a couple weeks ago, and I said, ‘Darius, this isn’t fair to anybody,” he said. “You’ll never get better at one position if we have you playing two.”But the Cowboy defense has done an outstanding amount of “playing two” since this time last year. Richards went from corner to safety. Kenneth Edison-McGruder went from safety to linebacker. Trey Carter went from defensive end to tackle. And now Curry.The good news is they can always go back. All of the spring moves can be reverted, which would make the secondary look like this: Tre FlowersKenneth Edison-McGruderRamon RichardsAdrian Baker Za’Carrius GreenPhilip Redwine-BryantMadre HarperMalik Kearse Darius CurryJerel MorrowRodarius WilliamsLamarcus Morton With only two definitive starters in a secondary of four, Darius Curry has moved to safety “full-time,” defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer told GoPokes.com.That (likely) means this:center_img While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Mike Gundy noted that before spring practice.“We have nine guys on the defensive line that power clean more than 315 pounds,” said Gundy. “We have nine guys that bench press more than 350 pounds, and five of them are over 400. … We have nine guys that all squat more than 450 pounds.”That’s great, and it will have to be to shrink the window in the secondary. Because no one is doubting the ability of these young corners to cover, just to cover for long enough. That’s why moving Curry to safety is significant. It only makes the corner situation riskier when it already felt like a Mason Rudolph keeper up the middle.last_img read more
