TCU-Baylor Scheduling Not Working Favorably For Oklahoma State

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. Ah, the schedule. It is a wily animal. One week you could be facing Daxx Garman throwing moon balls. The next week you could be staring at a future NFL first-round pick playing his first game. It is a grab bag of absurdity every single year. I can’t complain much about this year’s slate because OSU hasn’t encountered many night road games and has only played once outside the states of Oklahoma and Kansas.But one tweak could have changed the entire structure of the Big 12 title (and national title?) race. What if the TCU game had been back at the end of September and the Baylor game was this week for OSU?Maybe OSU doesn’t beat TCU in September, but it’s certainly an easier task. And OSU would beat Baylor this week in Waco, in Saudi Arabia or on the moon with a freshman QB getting his first start and the Bears in full free fall mode.“[TCU is] healthy again. We’re catching them at a bad time,” Glenn Spencer told the Oklahoman on Monday. “There was a stretch there where they weren’t very healthy. Think about us, you take away our top three playmakers, it’s not good. You’re going to take a hit.”I don’t want to think about James Washington, Justice Hill and Zach Sinor missing any games much less the same one, but Spencer’s point remains. TCU was beat up at the end of September.“They’ve got a couple of guys back,” added OSU safety Jordan Sterns. “They had that week off, but we do a good job of staying fresh. We’ve just got to come out and practice hard and keep doing the same things we’ve been doing. We’ve got to get properly prepared and then just go out there and do what we do.”What TCU has done recently is beat Baylor into oblivion before getting a week to lay low. Bad news for OSU fans: Since joining the Big 12, TCU is 10-3 when coming off a bye week (77%) compared to 50-23 (69%) overall.“There will be a few things that are different,” said head coach Mike Gundy of facing a TCU team coming off its bye. “You just have more time to study and prepare. Health-wise, fortunately for us, we’re in decent shape. We had our bye weeks a couple of weeks ago when we needed a bye week.“I always have concerns when we play a team that has had a bye week if we’re not healthy. I think we’re okay there, but there will be some changes just based on the history of coaches who have time to watch tape and put things in that they can get in during the week. You have a Tuesday practice and a Wednesday practice and that’s pretty much it. The extra practices really help.”You can’t make your own schedule, of course, and maybe it wouldn’t have mattered. But I sure would have liked to have played TCU in September when it was still reeling from its loss to Arkansas, finding its feet with Kenny Trill and not as healthy as it is now.last_img read more

ESPN’s Rece Davis and Fox Sports’ Tim Brando were asked for their thoughts about OSU football these days.“It’s a different deal,” said Davis. “The brand is now known. Oklahoma State is a brand name now. They’ve pushed their way into the upper echelon of college football. Now, I think they’re recognized as a perennial contender.”They are.

Bringing the Heat

first_imgTouch Football Australia caught up with Tim Wyld, the State Operations Manager for Touch Football South Australia (TFSA) while he was at the X-Blades National Youth Championships at Port Macquarie.We had a chat with Tim to find out more about Touch Football in South Australia.Touch Football Australia (TFA): How is Touch Football going in South Australia?Tim Wyld (TW): It is getting a lot stronger. We’ve increased our participation over the years, which has been really positive at grassroots level. That’s slowly starting to transition into enhanced elite or high performance at nationals.TFA: How many affiliates and registered players are there?TW: We have 17 affiliates and a lot of them are centrally managed by the office [Touch Football South Australia] and registered players we have just over 9000.TFA: When did Touch Football begin in South Australia?TW: The early 80s. Over the last couple of years it has flowed throughout that 20-year period. But we sort of went backwards for a few years there but we have sort of got on the right track now and it is really good, it is growing again.TFA: What kind of challenges have there been to establish the sport in South Australia?TW: I think the whole unitary model challenge sort of shake things up a bit. It was a time of uncertainty at the affiliate level. We are always up against it with some of the larger codes, AFL in particular, but recent years we have been getting into the schools system a lot more and that’s where we are seeing our growth come from school-based participation.TFA: To have that system in place, it’s really important isn’t?TW: Absolutely. We have recently signed four more agreements with the school bodies to integrate that participation at that level, so we have more of an influence and we can do TID [Talent Identification] and or get them into a team at grassroots level.TFA: What benefits does Touch Football South Australia get out from competing at the X-Blades National Youth Championships?TW: First and foremost the participation aspects of it. But we are seeing with our girls program, we are not here to make up the numbers. The girls have had a fantastic tournament, taking it to all the top Queensland and New South Wales teams and they continue to do that, and that is the aim. For the boys, they’re probably back a couple of pegs but it’s about improving their game, and slowly but surely getting them up to speed.Make sure you stay up to date with these websites for all the X-Blades National Youth Championships action: X-Blades National Youth Championships – www.soo.mytouchfooty.comTouch Football Australia – www.austouch.com.auTouch Football Australia’s YouTube channel – www.youtube.com/touchfootballausTwitter: www.twitter.com/touchfootyausFacebook: www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustralia Related LinksBringing the Heatlast_img read more

Micciche Introduces Bill To Close Schneider Loopholes

Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen) filed a bill to eliminate the “Schneider Loopholes” in Alaska’s criminal code in sexual assault cases. Micciche says SB 12 will improve our sexual assault laws in three important ways: Sen. Micciche: “In recent years, one outrageous story after another about criminals getting a slap on the wrist has dominated our headlines. The case of Justin Schneider, however, forced us to confront just how badly our criminal justice system has been failing victims and survivors of sexual assault. SB 12 represents an urgently needed fix to a glaring loophole, but it is only the beginning.”center_img Senate Bill 12 was introduced by Senator Micciche after Justin Schneider, a case that gained national attention, after he served no prison time for strangling a woman to the point of unconsciousness and then ejaculating on her. According to Senator Micciche this exposed some serious, long-standing shortcomings in laws dealing with sexual assault in Alaska: “Serious crimes were ignored and an inappropriate plea deal allowed the perpetrator to serve a portion of the sentence of the single conviction at home with his family. In a state number one in the U.S. for sexual assault, we are making the statement that there will be ‘no more free passes’ for perpetrators of such crimes.”last_img read more

EcoFriendly Surveillance NEC Develops Enhancement That Uses Fluorescent Light Tubes

first_imgNEC spy camera – Credit: NEC & Digital World Tokyo Minuscule microbes wield enormous power over the Great Lakes, but many species remain a mystery Citation: Eco-Friendly Surveillance: NEC Develops Enhancement That Uses Fluorescent Light Tubes (2007, December 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2007-12-eco-friendly-surveillance-nec-fluorescent-tubes.html NEC has developed a wireless security camera that utilizes energy from fluorescent light tubes. Workplace employee surveillance cameras can be neatly tucked away in the false ceilings along side the fluorescent tubes. The surveillance camera is tethered to the fluorescent light by a single wire with a ring-like adapter at one end. As reported by Digital World Tokyo, the camera is activated when the lights are turned on. The act of flipping the light switch activates the electricity generated by the Sharp-created technology located in the ring through electromagnetic induction. The magnetic field created by the AC source in the fluorescent light tubes is the energy source the technology development utilizes. The magnetic field frequency of 45 to 100 kHz can be used by the ring to generate enough electricity,(120 mW), to power up the camera. The camera is a standard-VGA resolution unit that takes pictures every ten seconds. The images are transferred to a PC utilizing an ordinary WiFi chip that draws power from the fluorescent light source. NEC is a leader in surveillance and security solutions for the 21st Century. NEC envisions the use of the energy saving technology will be useful for merchants in determining on-site marketing trends. Other uses include hotel surveillance for security purposes. In the work place, the unobtrusive surveillance system employs green technology and may entitle purchases to be offset by applicable rebates and credits. NEC is focused on promoting environmentally conscious technologies and enhancements for current devices. NEC is a member of the “Team Minus 6% Project,” whose mission it is to reduce energy consumption by six percent. NEC is currently involved in the development of solar power for PCs, recycling and the utilization of energy saving fluorescent light tubes as well as other alternative Eco-friendly energy sources.
