Beat writers unanimously pick Syracuse to top Wagner in a blowout

Posted on by

first_imgMatt Liberman (1-0)Legion of whom?Syracuse 58, Wagner 13The Wagner Seahawks’ secondary is not exactly the Seattle Seahawks. If Syracuse has any trouble on Saturday whatsoever, SU fans should be concerned. Wagner, an FCS team, won its first matchup this season against Division II Bowie State, 40-23. If Bowie State can drop 23 on Wagner, assume that an Eric Dungey-led offense can score at least 50 on the Seahawks as it scored 55 against Western Michigan. Syracuse simply has far superior athletes and greater talent on its squad. This shouldn’t be a close matchup. Expect Tommy DeVito to see a good amount of time with the first unit as Syracuse will likely jump out to a huge lead. And expect SU to spread the ball around more on offense. Perhaps Devin Butler and Ravian Pierce will get a good amount of throws their way to incorporate someone into the passing offense beside Jamal Custis. This game is a tune up for FSU.

Last season, the Seahawks played one FBS opponent, WMU, and lost, 49-14.Here’s what our beat writers expect to happen Saturday.Andrew Graham (1-0)AnnihilationSyracuse 52, Wagner 17On Tuesday, Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey said he wants to “annihilate” teams the rest of the year, starting with Wagner. Long term, we’ll check back on how the annihilation is going, but at least on Saturday, Dungey will get his wish. Syracuse did allow Western Michigan back into a done-deal, but the Seahawks are a different story. Wagner, an FCS team, won its opener against Bowie State, a Division II team, by 17 at home. In that game, Wagner leaned on running back Ryan Fulse for 280 yards and three touchdowns. Against an ACC front seven, I doubt Fulse finds the same success. For Syracuse, look for someone other than Jamal Custis to catch passes and someone other than — or more aptly, alongside — Dungey to run the football as the Orange tunes up to host Florida State.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJosh Schafer (1-0)“Rock me mama like a wagon wheel”Syracuse 48, Wagner 10A week after scoring 55 points against a Mid-American Conference team, Syracuse’s offense shouldn’t struggle against Wagner. The Seahawks played one FBS opponent a year ago, Western Michigan, and lost 49-14. A week ago, Syracuse totaled 560 yards on 88 plays. History indicates a similar display on Saturday. In 2016, when Syracuse hosted FCS opponent Colgate, the Orange totaled 554 yards on 81 plays in a 33-7 victory. In 2017, SU trounced FCS school Central Connecticut State 50-7 behind 586 yards on 93 plays. The offense will be there. Against an FCS school, the defense should be there. And the Orange will pick up its second-straight win headed into a week three matchup against Florida State.last_img read more

Rudy Gobert gave Jazz reporters ‘low risk exposure’ to coronavirus when he touched their microphones

Posted on by

first_imgThe Jazz said the player who has the illness (Gobert) is “currently in the care of health officials in Oklahoma City.” Jazz teammate Emmanuel Mudiay was also listed on the injury report with an illness, but no reports have indicated he also has coronavirus.Evan Fournier, another NBA player, said he spoke with Gobert and he is doing well. The Athletic reported via sources “Gobert is feeling good, strong and stable” and “had enough energy” to play Wednesday night, which is why he was initially listed as questionable.As a result of Gobert’s positive test, Utah’s game against Oklahoma City was postponed, and  the entire NBA season was suspended. Gobert was listed as questionable with an illness heading into Wednesday night’s game against the Thunder and was later listed as out.MORE: Why NBA suspended season, and what’s nextA few days before testing positive for the illness, Gobert during a pregame interview session jokingly touched reporters’ microphones in front of him. Reporter Andy Larsen, who covers the Jazz for the Salt Lake Tribune, said of the incident: “I actually took it as a measure of support for the media. We were being told to keep 6-8 feet away from them on the assumption that we might infect a player. I thought it was Rudy thumbing his nose at the separation between us.”It was obviously reckless, but heck, nearly everyone I know has made a coronavirus distance joke at some point this week.”rudy gobert is questionable with an illness two days after making it “a point to touch every mic and recorder in front of him” pic.twitter.com/rqhMUc4ens— Jordan Heck (@JordanHeckFF) March 11, 2020Video of Gobert touching the microphones surfaced later Wednesday evening.There was obvious concern that if Gobert had been infected with the virus at the time that he could pass it on to reporters. Ben Anderson, who covers the Jazz for KSL Sports, contacted the Utah Department of Health to determine whether he and other reporters were at risk.The department’s response:”We have had many questions from members of the media concerning the risk of COVID-19 due to contact with Mr. Rudy Gobert, and specifically, during the press conference on Monday, March 9, 2020. Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of a confirmed COVID-19 case, for minutes or longer. In this particular instance, public health considers close contact to be an individual or 1:1 interview with Mr. Gobert or shaking hands giving high fives with Mr. Gobert. We consider the incident where Mr. Gobert briefly touched the microphones after the press conference on Monday to be a low risk exposure.”The department added that if reporters didn’t have close contact with Gobert, as defined above, they “do not need to stay home or be under active monitoring by public health.” But they do suggest “to limit the spread of any illness” to stay home if they start feeling any symptoms. If any reporter did have close contact, though, he or she needs to remain quarantined at home for the next 14 days.MORE: Tracking coronavirus cancellations in sports Jazz center Rudy Gobert on Wednesday tested positive for coronavirus, according to multiple reports.The NBA and the Jazz in their statements did not identify Gobert as the player who had tested positive, but they did mention a Utah player has the virus. The statement from the team reads in part, “This morning a player on the Utah Jazz tested negative for influenza, strep throat and an upper respiratory infection. The individual’s symptoms diminished over the course of today, however, in a precautionary measure, and in consultation and cooperation with NBA medical staff and Oklahoma health officials, the decision was made to test for COVID-19. A preliminary positive result came back right before tip-off of the Utah Jazz-Oklahoma City game.”last_img read more
