Time commitment does not worry coaches as schools prepare to produce content for SEC Network-beats by dre

Time commitment does not worry coaches as schools prepare to produce content for SEC Network,beats by dre
“We’ll be very sensitive to their schedules. I think they’ll find it’s actually a benefit for them.” — SEC Commissioner Mike Slive
Georgia football coach Mark Richt, left, greets Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive after a news conference announcing the launching of the SEC Network in partnership with ESPN, held Thursday, May 2, 2013, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/John Amis)ATLANTA — Time is a precious commodity for college football coaches.When they’re not coaching, they’re preparing for the next game, recruiting the next prospect, conducting staff meetings, making public appearances or talking to the press.There’s little time for much else.How much time coaches will be required to set aside when the SEC Network launches in August 2014 is not yetcompletelyknown,beats by dre outlet, but the hours and hours of original programming — both live and taped — yet to be developed leaves the 14 football coaches ample opportunity showcase their program, whether in interviews or opening their doors for behind-the-scenes programming.But how much is too much?”I think the time that we have to spend on media-related promotion, whether it’s coaches, student-athletes or whomever it is, it can’t be increased because we have other things that are important to do,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said.The simple solution? Coaches and athletic departments will restructure and shift their coaches’ free time when the SEC Network requires an appearance. For Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze, that means less interviews with reporters and last-minute radio appearances.”It’s about managing,” Freeze said,monster beats. “We’ll be able to bounce all of that,” said Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, “and it won’t take away from the job that we need to do.”Time management is nothing new for coaches involved with a television network., saying the the six hours he spent every week filming three shows for the Texas-centric network was stealing important time from his coaching duties.He also believed the behind-the-scenes shows, including a broadcast of the Longhorn’s first 30 minutes of practice, tipped opponents to personnel groupings and injuries.The Longhorn Network, like the SEC’s network, is produced by ESPN.Obviously, each SEC school will not have its own 24-hour network schedule to fill every day and will share the load with its brethren in the 14-team conference. The SEC’s coaches and athletics directors do not anticipate similar complaints arising within the conference.”I don’t think it will beonerous,” SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said. “We’ll be very sensitive to their schedules. I think they’ll find it’s actually a benefit for them. It’ll provide us opportunities to be able to put on a lot more in the spring.”Slive says he would like to see the network produce shows featuring expert panels, and programming focusing on recruiting in the spring. He expects Pro Days at every SEC school will be featured as well.RELATED:Some of the live-event coverage and pre-taped shows will be produced by individual schools — providing content outside the 450 live events the SEC has scheduled for its first year on the air.”We’ll be able to do a lot of things the coaches will find helpful to them,” Slive said.Schools are also upgrading their on-campus studios hoping for an opportunity to fill holes on the network schedule with their own original programming.ESPN representatives will consult and advise schools on equipment and studio upgrades over the next year.”We’ve seen this coming and we’re upgrading what we call our control room,” Arkansas athletics director Jeff Long said. “It’s like a sound stage. That’s where we’re headed.”Auburn plans to team up with its communications department and the business college to produce content, including live events, and give students on-the-job experience,beats headphones. Studio upgrades will be needed but costs will fluctuate from school to school.”We’ve had some opportunities for free equipment that have come in,” Auburn President Jay Gogue said. “We’ve had some developmentopportunitiesthat we think are very positive in that area.”Arkansas’ studio is located in bowels of Bud Walton Arena, the home of the Razorbacks’ basketball team. The school produced an in-house show featuring football coach Bret Bielema this spring. Many SEC schools have produced similar features, though the move to 30-minute productions like those Arkansas produce will increase across the SEC when the network launches.”As the strongest conference in America, our coaches are already used to that, to be quite honest,” Long said of the media attention. “We don’t see this as being any more than what they’re already used to because we’re covered by everybody and so, no, I don’t think that’s going to be a burden for our coaches.”Email:Twitter:Facebook:

Dugard was abducted from a California bus stop in 1991 at age 11 and held captive for 18 years in a backyard-monster beats

Dugard was abducted from a California bus stop in 1991 at age 11 and held captive for 18 years in a backyard, where she gave birth to two children conceived by rape. She made an oblique reference Tuesday to the Cleveland case as she accepted an award in Washington from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
What an amazing time to be talking about hope, with everything that’s happening, she said in her brief remarks. She urged the hundreds of people at the annual awards gala not to give up on missing children.
Just urge yourself to care, she said,monster beats.
In a statement released earlier through her publicist, Dugard said the women need a chance to heal and reconnect with the world. She said that the human spirit is resilient, and that the case reaffirms that people should never give up hope.
Dugard’s mother,beats by dre outlet, Terry Probyn,beats headphones, said in Washington that she understood what the relatives of the Cleveland victims were going through.
I feel the same relief and the same joy that I felt when Jaycee was returned to me safely after 18 hellish years, she said. I never doubted for one minute that I would someday be reunited with my daughter.
John Ryan, CEO of the center, praised the vigilance of investigators in Cleveland, saying they followed up on tips and never forgot about the missing women.
There are other missing children out there that are only a phone call away from getting away from their predators, Ryan said. I have every hope and confidence that this will lead to future recoveries.
Ryan said the three women would likely be honored by his group in the future. I think they’re going to be at the top of the list, he said.
In comments Tuesday on ABC’s Good Morning America, Smart said she was overjoyed to hear about the happy ending for the Cleveland women, who escaped Monday after being missing a decade.
She said the ordeal highlights the importance of the public staying alert and vigilant. She advised the women to focus on moving forward and let go of the past. Smart says it’s also important for others to respect the privacy of those women as they recover from the decade-long ordeal.
Smart was kidnapped from her bedroom in Salt Lake City when she was 14,beats by dre. She was freed nine months later when she was found walking with her captor on a suburban street in March 2003.

Johnson did not disclose what the audit found or what changes in the complaint CACH wants to make.”Let me tell you I’m slammed,” the judge said.King said it would likely be 2014 before a trial could start and, even then, it could be summer.”We don’t have as many jury weeks as we used to by virtue of the monetary crisis,monster beats,” he said.Johnson said he would likely file the amended complaint within two weeks.

STATE COLLEGE — Late Friday afternoon in a large conference room inside the Penn Stater Conference center-beats headphones

STATE COLLEGE — Late Friday afternoon in a large conference room inside the Penn Stater Conference center, a member of one Penn State football’s greatest families came out on the losing end, big-time, of a battle backed by, well, Penn State football’s greatest football family.
You could argue it was really that simple.
And so it was that Paul Suhey, one of the late Joe Paterno’s former players and the son of all-time PSU great Steve Suhey, lost in his bid to retain his alumni seat on Penn State’s board of trustees.
Suhey, a State College doctor and a trustee for 15 years, was a distant fourth (out of 39 candidates) in a vote to fill three alumni seats on the 32-member board,beats headphones.
The three winners were Barbara Doran (15,085), William Oldsey (13,940) and Edward “Ted” Brown (11,403). In all, more than 33,000 alumni voted.
Suhey finished fourth in the race with 4,521 votes and when the results were announced at Friday’s trustees’ meeting, a crowded room let loose cheerful cries and broke out in applause.
It’s almost impossible not to tie Friday’s result tothe day the university’s trustees, Suhey included, fired Paterno from his post as PSU football coach, part of the school’s reaction to the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
Another former Penn State football great, Franco Harris, a champion of Paterno’s since he was fired and a headliner of a group of approximately 15,000 alumni known as Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, was present for the trustees meeting.
In recent weeks, a number of prominent PSU football lettermen — Harris, Todd Blackledge, Michael Robinson and Brandon Short among them — sent
And in early April, on the PSFS website endorsing the candidacies of Doran, Oldsey and Brown. In the letter, written by one of Joe Paterno’s sons, David Paterno writes, “For the record, we are not close to Paul Suhey and do not endorse him.”
Harris addressed the board Friday before the voting results were announced. His feelings for Joe Paterno have not changed. During his three-minute speech, Harris asked, “How did it feel to go after an 85-year-old man who was sick, weak and frail? Did it make you feel powerful?”
After the trustees’ meeting, Harris, wearing a blue blazer with a white tag bearing the words “Member of the Grand Experiment” (a nod to Joe Paterno’s term for academic and athletic excellence), congratulated the three new trustees.
He also added, “We’re just trying to let people understand that we really don’t like what happened on November 9, that (the trustees) they failed Penn State.
“So why should they represent us? I don’t want them to represent us. I don’t feel they deserve to represent us.”
Another trustee, Anthony Lubrano, who is also a Paterno loyalist, believed Paul Suhey’s loss was due to a number of factors — the Paterno family endorsement letter, the Football Lettermen’s letter, and Suhey’s early March interview with the Centre Daily Times in which he said the trustees did not fire Paterno in November of 2011. Rather, they merely “retired him three weeks early”. (Shortly before his firing, Paterno had announced his intention to retire at the end of the 2011 season.).
“Yes,” said Lubrano,beats by dre outlet, asked if the lettermen’s letter and the Paterno family endorsement impacted the election.
“But I couldn’t tell you the degree to which it (did).”
“Getting the lettermen to distribute that communication, I’m sure,monster beats, hurt Paul,” added Lubrano. “But I think what hurt Paul more than anything else was his interview in the Centre Daily Times. (He said) “We didn’t fire him (Paterno), we just retired him three weeks early.
“And that was right when the election began and that wasn’t probably the smartest comment to make but that’s Paul. And I can’t speak for why he said that.”
The Suhey name has long been synonymous with football excellence at Penn State. Paul and his brothers, Matt and Larry, played for Paterno in the mid-1970s and Matt was later the blocking back for Chicago Bears great Walter Payton.
Paul Suhey’s son, Kevin Suhey, was a backup quarterback for Penn Sate beginning in 2005.
But the Suhey name starts with Steve Suhey, an All-American guard for Penn State in 1947. Steve Suhey’s wife, Ginger, was the daughter of former Penn State football coach and PSU All-American Bob Higgins.
So in a way, the Suhey name has its roots in PSU football dating all the way back to 1919, the year Bob Higgins was named an All-American,beats by dre.
The Suhey name is still a big part of Penn State and always will be. But Friday, the news for Paul Suhey was not good.
He did not speak with the media after the trustees’ meeting but issued the following statement:
“It has been an honor to serve on the Penn State University Board for 15 years. I am proud of my service and I am proud of this board. I continue to be amazed at the high-caliber individuals who volunteer their time, expertise and skills to make this university better.
“They have made me a better person. Penn State was a great institution when my grandfather and father were here, it was a great institution when I was here and it is a great institution today.
“I want to offer my congratulations to the newly elected alumni trustees. I know they will be as proud as I was to represent the best and largest alumni association in the world.”
Another famous Penn State football voice from the recent past was heard roughly an hour after the news that Paul Suhey had lost his re-election bid became public.
It was the voice of Jay Paterno, Joe Paterno’s son and the quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator on the 2011 Penn State team.
Jay Paterno, a big fan of social media, offered this opinion on Twitter:
“Those BOT (Board of Trustees) elections remind me of Denzel in the movie Man on Fire patiently picking them off one by one. Good day for PSU.”
is a riveting 2004 film starring Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning. Technically, you could call it a thriller, as the plot involves Washington, a one-time CIA operative who is now a bodyguard, and his attempts to find Fanning, the person he was guarding in Mexico. The 9-year-old girl is abducted and soon Washington goes on a rampage in which lots of blood is spilled.
Make no mistake, Jay Paterno chose his movie carefully on Friday.
Man on Fire is all about revenge.

Hard-nosed defenseman amassed 360 penalty minutes in four junior seasons with the WHL’s Calgary Hitmen-monster beats

Hard-nosed defenseman amassed 360 penalty minutes in four junior seasons with the WHL’s Calgary Hitmen.

His uncle, , amassed 337 minutes in one season (1978-79) with the Hershey Bears. The combative 5-9, 175-pound winger ranks No. 9 on Hershey’s all-time penalty minutes list (690).

The younger Rissling, signed to an amateur tryout contract, became a club legacy when he joined the Bears on Friday.

Just meeting some of the coaching staff and the GM, just saying that I look like Gary, Rissling said. I don’t know if that’s a good thing. He lost his hair. I hope that they meant that I look like him on the ice,monster beats. He was a feisty player who stirred things up. Hopefully, that’s what they meant by that,beats headphones.

The younger Rissling, a seventh-round pick (197th overall) by the Washington Capitals in the 2012 NHL entry draft, is feisty in his own right. The 6-4, 225-pounder had 14 regular-season fights for Calgary in 2012-13, according to

The 19-year-old is expected to have an observational and practice role, not a playing role, with Hershey this season. But he could loom as a 2013-14 Hershey roster candidate.

I’m just excited for the opportunity,beats by dre, Rissling said. I’m just going to try and be a sponge, I guess, kind of take it all in and see what the team’s all about and what this lifestyle is like.

Rissling produced 5-23-28 and 122 penalty minutes with Calgary this season.

I lost a little bit of weight, Rissling said. I think that really helped with my skating. I think that I’ve become a little bit faster and just more confident when skating with the puck. The physicality is still there. I still like to mix it up.

Gary Rissling, a restaurateur in Baltimore who was a member of Hershey’s 1979-80 Calder Cup team, attended Caps development camp last summer to watch his nephew.

I’m sure that he and another uncle or two would love to come down [to Hershey], Rissling said, and just see what it’s like and maybe catch a game,beats by dre outlet.

Here is a to a Jaynen Rissling fight against Red Deer’s Jan Bittner this season.

Here is a to a Gary Rissling fight against Hershey’s Steve Martinson, circa 1985-86, when Rissling played for the Baltimore Skipjacks.

— College football season might be 17 weeks away, but Nick Saban still knows how to make waves on a Saturday — even in May and even when he’s not trying to.
Saban was spotted by numerous sources at Alabama’s spring commencement ceremony, but it wasn’t until UA student Bradley Harris that the Alabama coach’s presence truly went viral. With the lens focused on Harris in the foreground, Saban stands near his seat in the background, looking in the same direction as the camera,monster beats.
It’s your garden-variety, inadvertent “photobomb.”
One of
numerous definitions for “photobomb” states that it is “an otherwise
normal photo that has been ruined or spoiled by someone who was not
supposed to be in the photograph.” It’s safe to say Harris didn’t feel that way, as he passed the photo along to numerous, high-profile media members,beats headphones, including ESPN, whose re-Tweets quickly helped spread it across the Internet.
