Football: UW still searching for definitive starting five on offensive line

Posted on by

first_imgUnofficially, the University of Wisconsin football team used at least four different offensive line combinations during Wisconsin’s 17-9 win over the University of Iowa last Saturday.The game began with the offensive line UW has started with since Sept. 24 at Michigan State University, with junior Ryan Ramczyk at left tackle, sophomore Michael Deiter at left guard, sophomore Brett Connors at center, sophomore Beau Benzschawel at right guard and sophomore Jacob Maxwell at right tackle.After two games of inconsistent line play and an inability to get the running game going, the coaching staff instilled some shakeups against Ohio State University, subbing in different personnel on several drives.Football: No. 10 Wisconsin brings back Heartland Trophy to Madison with 17-9 win over IowaIt appeared Bart Houston had been discarded, cast away for the younger, more exciting option with an eye toward the Read…Last Saturday, different combinations included placing freshman Jon Dietzen at left guard with Connors coming out, Deiter moving to center, Micah Kapoi replacing Benzschawel at right guard and David Edwards, a converted tight end, taking over for Maxwell at right tackle.UW head coach Paul Chryst said the rotation idea came about in the spring. Of course, some of the switches have been heavily impacted by health issues too. Maxwell is listed as questionable for Saturday (right shoulder).“We’ve had a lot of practice preparing for it because of the circumstances,” Chryst said. “We’re not trying to do it to invent something that doesn’t need to be there. Some of these have been when someone’s hurt. There is a philosophy of you want to try to get your best players on the field.”Deiter along with Ramczyk are the only constants on the line, which has forced the pair into managing different positions, even on back-to-back drives at times this season. Deiter said confidence is key when moving around on the line.“You just have to have the right mindsets,” Deiter said. “You gotta know the different techniques that each position requires and you have to be confident in both positions.”The sophomore right guard also said this would be slightly easier to manage if UW could establish five guys in definitive positions on the line, but not by much. He also said it’s important to keep guys who are banged-up fresh and limit their snaps to avoid further injury.Benzschawel took game time off for the first time this season last week against the Hawkeyes. He said it was strange not being in the huddle for every snap, but that his legs felt much fresher as the game went progressed.That freshness has helped the line improve, especially in the running game. Pass protection is still an area of emphasis, Benzschawel said, not only for himself, but for the unit as a whole. Benzschawel’s struggles in the pass protection game come from losing his legs as the game goes on, he said, so he welcomes the time off to make sure he’s at his best during crunch time.Football notes: Chryst unhappy with red zone efficiency, injury report, traffic precautions for SaturdayUniversity of Wisconsin football players know how much Paul Chryst loves to practice red zone scenarios for his offense. The Read…Kapoi started six games for the Badgers last season, but injuries to both of his ankles have limited him in 2016. Starting would be nice, Kapoi said, but at the end of the day, all that matters is what’s best for the team.“Obviously everybody wants to be that guy. Everybody wants to be a starter,” Kapoi said. “For us, it’s more working as a group, gelling together … At this point, I think we all are comfortable with playing whoever is next to us.”last_img read more

Faf du Plessis found guilty of ball-tampering, other such instances

Posted on by

first_imgSouth African skipper Faf Du Plessis escaped suspension but was fined 100 percent of his match fee after the ICC found him guilty of ball tampering during the win in the 2nd Test against Australia. Du Plessis was pictured applying saliva on the ball while he had mint in his mouth. Du Plessis had pleaded not-guilty while South African team presented a united front at the press-conference calling the accusations a ‘joke’.Here are other instances of allegations of ball tampering against some of the biggest names in the world of cricket.PAKISTAN TEAM, AUGUST 2006In what has been the only instance of a match being won due to a forfeit by the opposition team occurred in 2006 when Pakistan team refused to take the field post Tea after being accused of tampering the seam of the ball by the on-field umpires on Day 4. Even though Pakistan & England teams reached an understanding & decided to resume the match an hour later, the umpires declined to continue the match saying that Pakistan forfeited the match after refusing to take the field. While Pakistan team captain Inzamam Ul Haq was later cleared of ball-tampering allegation, he was handed a ban of 4 ODI matches for bringing the game to disrepute by refusing to play. This instance divided world cricket like never before.SHAHID AFRIDI, 2010Stand-in Pakistan Captain Shahid Afridi was handed a 2-match ban after possibly the most obvious case of ball tampering ever caught on tape. Afridi was seen biting the ball during Pakistan’s two-wicket loss to Australia. The incident was reported to the on-field umpires who changed the ball while Afridi accepted the charges saying he was ’embarrassed’ and that he was just trying to help his team win the match. Pakistan lost the ODI.advertisementFAF DU PLESSIS, 2013South African player Faf Du Plessis was fined 50% of his match fee after TV cameras caught him rubbing the ball on a zip on his trousers in an attempt to ‘rough-up’ one side. Du Plessis pleaded guilty while the umpires added five runs to Pakistan’s total.VERNON PHILANDER, 2014South African pacer Vernon Philander was fined 75% of his match fee after the match-referee found him “scratching the ball with his fingers and thumb” to alter its state.SACHIN TENDULKAR, 2001Match referee Mike Dennis suspended Sachin Tendulkar for a match after he suspected the Master Blaster of scrubbing the seam of the ball. Tendulkar clarified that he was just removing grass from the seam and after protests by the Indian Team the match-referee was removed for the third Test. ICC later cleared Tendulkar of all charges.last_img read more
