Mbappe knew all the results of the second division in France.‘Nicolas Pepe is like that. He’s another example of the importance of a player liking football.‘After a game he watches the whole game again two times, to make himself more perfect.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityCampos has bought and sold some incredible talents during his time at Monaco and Lille – such as Bernardo Silva and Anthony Martial – though says Fabinho is the one he is most proud of.He continued: ‘I remember I went to the Copa Sao Paulo [Junior Football Competition] to see Fluminense who had a top team, some very good players.

When you get to the Rose Bowl, chances are you’ve seen it all.The No. 5 Wisconsin Badgers sure have. They barely survived Arizona State at home, escaping by way of a blocked extra point. Two weeks later, they were stunningly embarrassed in East Lansing by Michigan State in the Big Ten opener. Another two weeks later, Wisconsin shocked the nation by shutting down Terrelle Pryor and the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes. One Saturday later, and UW was on the road against Iowa, surviving the gut-check of all gut-checks.The latter two wins restored the Badgers’ season, but the four games after it propelled them to the upper echelon of the nation’s elite. In November, Wisconsin slaughtered its opponents, going a perfect 4-0 with a combined score of 235-84, controlling the likes of Denard Robinson in the Big House and preventing traditional spoilers such as Northwestern from repeating history.When the battle-tested Badgers head to Pasadena for their first BCS bowl game in 10 years, such experience will prove invaluable. As much as the Horned Frogs should be an unfamiliar squad – TCU plays in the Mountain West Conference and its 8,700 students dwarf in comparison to UW’s 42,000 – the Badgers find themselves surprisingly prepared.In actuality, TCU can be described as a blend of the Big Ten’s best, especially on offense, where it starts with quarterback Andy Dalton.“He’s a great quarterback,” said UW middle linebacker Culmer St. Jean. “He goes through all his reads; if he doesn’t see them, he’s capable of running. He’ll run and get as many yards as far as I’ve seen, or get a first down. He’s fantastic, he doesn’t make that many mistakes, minimizes turnovers and he gets his playmakers the ball.”With Dalton, there aren’t many surprises. At 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, the senior from Katy, Texas, has prototypical size for a big-time quarterback. His numbers also speak for themselves – his efficiency rating of 167.0 is fifth in the nation (right behind the Badgers’ Scott Tolzien at 169.8) and he’s thrown for 2,638 yards, 26 touchdowns and only six interceptions. Wisconsin fans are accustomed to Tolzien’s remarkable decision-making; he’s also thrown only six picks as well, and he’s been sacked only 11 times. Dalton’s also supremely quick with the ball, having been sacked just eight times.“He’s very similar to what Scotty does,” said UW safety Jay Valai. “He doesn’t make too many mistakes; he doesn’t get sacked too often. He can run the football, as well. He’s a surprisingly good athlete, he’s a good football player and he’s their leader, so you have to respect him a lot.”Respect won’t be a problem for Wisconsin. They know how good Dalton is; they know he’s smart, efficient and even a capable runner. The Badgers also know he doesn’t do it all by himself. For all the attention given to UW’s offensive line, TCU’s is more than capable. The Badgers’ O-line – anchored by Outland Trophy winner left tackle Gabe Carimi and left guard John Moffitt – averages 6-foot-5, 320-pounds among its starting five, slightly bigger than TCU’s 6-foot-4, 317-pound line. TCU’s offensive line holds the advantage in experience, though, as only left guard Kyle Dooley isn’t a senior (he’s a junior). Wisconsin’s linemen, beyond their size, are also remarkably mobile – particularly center Peter Konz – and TCU’s shares the same reputation.“They run a lot of zone read, but they also throw a little bit of other things into the mix,” said UW defensive tackle Jordan Kohout. “They’re very balanced. Like Coach Bielema was saying at the end of practice, they do a little bit of everything, but they’re good at it. They’re a lot like us in that respect in that we kind of stick to our guns a lot of the time, but we also execute well.”Indeed, TCU’s offense executes as well as basically anyone in the country. The Horned Frogs boast the nation’s 10th-best offense, averaging 491.5 yards per game – 41.3 more than the Badgers. TCU’s even ran for more yards than the vaunted UW rushing attack, holding a 261.2-247.3 advantage in rushing yards per game. Yet, where it matters most, scoring, the two squads are equal: Each team scored 520 points in 12 games.“I feel like they’re a blend of everybody, just like the quarterback,” St. Jean said. “They run the pistol like Ohio State and Purdue, they run the two backs, they run I-backs like ourselves and Iowa and Michigan. They run the spread like Michigan, and Michigan State, I-backs too. They do a lot of things and they’re really good at what they do. We’re really approaching it like this is a season finale, getting all the offenses in one. That’s how we’re going to look at it.”Inevitably, the discussion around the Horned Frogs’ offense returns to Dalton. TCU’s signal caller was the MWC’s Offensive Player of the Year and a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Award, which ended up going to Tolzien. Dalton is also the nation’s leader in wins by an active quarterback, topping Boise State’s Kellen Moore by four with 40 wins. So as powerful as the Horned Frogs’ offense has been this year, the execution begins and ends with Dalton.“In the end, it’s just another game. But obviously, it’s the Rose Bowl,” Valai said, offering an intriguing contradiction. “You’ve got to pick up the way you play on national TV; only game on, really, at that time. We know we’ve got to come out there and come out guns a blazin’. TCU’s a great football team, a lot of speed, and Dallas-Fort Worth area, obviously you’ve got great football players. TCU’s going to be a fun game, we’re coming out there excited to play.”
Syracuse opens the 2015 season with Rhode Island at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Friday night, and here’s what you need to know heading into the Orange’s first game week.Easy rebound SU finished 3-9 last season with a 1-7 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. This year will be the third for head coach Scott Shafer, and the team has continually shifted the conversation away from the 2014 season as a means of moving on.A home date with the Rams will be a good start to what promises to be a multi-year mending process. The Rhode Island game starts a stretch of three winnable home games to start the season: with Wake Forest visiting the Dome in Week 2 and Central Michigan in Week 3. The last time the Rams played at Syracuse, in 2011, the Orange won 21-14 and rode a fourth-quarter touchdown to a 2-0 record.This Rhode Island team is coming off a 1-11 season, and will need to play well above its potential to stay close with Syracuse for four quarters.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse depth chart The Orange released its two-deep Week 1 depth chart on Saturday. Below is the full depth chart with notes underneath.OffenseQuarterback: Terrel Hunt, Austin Wilson or Eric DungeyRunning back: Devante McFarlane, George MorrisHybrid: Ervin Philips, Ben LewisWide receiver: Steve Ishmael, Sean AvantWide receiver: Brisly Estime, Alvin CorneliusTight end: Josh Parris, Kendall MooreLeft tackle: Ivan Foy, Cody ConwayLeft guard: Nick Robinson, Alex HayesCenter: Rob Trudo, Jason EmerichRight guard: Seamus Shanley, Aaron RobertsRight tackle: Omari Palmer, Jamar McGlosterDefenseDefensive end: Donnie Simmons, Qaadir SheppardNose tackle: Kayton Samuels, Steven ClarkDefensive tackle: John Raymon, Chris SlaytonDefensive end: Ron Thompson, Luke ArciniegaStrong-side linebacker: Parris Bennett, Ted TaylorMiddle linebacker: Zaire Franklin, Oliver VigilleWeak-side linebacker: Marqez Hodge, Alryk PerryCornerback: Julian Whigham, Cordell Hudson or Juwan DowelsStrong safety: Antwan Cordy, Kielan WhitnerFree safety: Rodney Williams, Chauncey ScissumCornerback: Corey Winfield, Wayne MorganSpecial teamsPlace kicker: Cole Murphy, Ryan NortonPunter: Riley Dixon, Ryan NortonKickoffs: Ryan Norton, Cole MurphyHolder: Riley DixonLong snapper: Matt Keller or Keith MitsucchiKick returner: Brisly Estime, Ervin PhilipsPunt returner: Brisly Estime, Ervin PhilipsThe most surprising depth chart position is right guard, where senior walk-on Seamus Shanley beat out redshirt freshman Aaron Roberts, who was the presumed starter going back to the Orange’s annual spring game in April. Another interesting position is cornerback, where sophomore Corey Winfield — who switched from wide receiver to defensive back at the start of last season — is currently slotted ahead of senior Wayne Morgan. But Shafer did clarify at a press conference Saturday that he’s comfortable with all five cornerbacks in the two-deep and isn’t necessarily ranking them in any particular order.Five true freshman were listed on the Week 1 depth chart, including quarterback Eric Dungey, left tackle Cody Conway, defensive end Qaadir Shepard, nose tackle Steven Clark, strong safety Kielan Whitner and long snapper Matt Keller.On Saturday, Shafer made a point of saying that the two-deep depth chart will be a competition week-to-week throughout the entire season.Injury reportSyracuse usually releases an injury report the day before kickoff, and there are two key players, both on the defensive line, who were still working back from injuries at the end of training camp.Junior defensive end Ron Thompson, touted as the team’s most dangerous pass rusher, was sidelined for a good portion of training camp with a lower-body injury. He was out of a walking boot a week ago, and this will be the third week since Shafer said the team expected him to be out for three weeks.Senior defensive tackle John Raymon was limited by an upper-body injury for almost all of training camp that media was allowed to watch, which was the first 20 minutes of practice for two and a half weeks. Raymon had a cast on his right arm for most of that period, and the coaches said he’d made notable progress by the end of camp.Game-week coverageFor all Syracuse-Rhode Island updates leading up to and during the game, you can follow @DOSports on Twitter and keep up regularly with dailyorange.com.

Related Stories Steve Ishmael has breakout performance in loss to Pittsburgh Steve Ishmael’s greatest weakness was his weakness. He lacked the physique of a college football hopeful.Then a high school freshman, a 162-pound Ishmael went to make a block on a defender 40 pounds larger. He was pushed backward so easily the defender taunted him.“‘Man you got to go to the weight room,’” Ishmael said the defender told him. “I took that so personal. Ever since then, I’ve literally been in the weight room every day taking it serious.”His older brothers were bigger than he was too. Their size reminded him of the same thing that the defender did.With Ishmael’s strength a perpetual work in progress, his college aspirations were nonexistent until he received his first offer from Western Michigan. It was a shock to Ishmael in his junior year, something he never expected and hardly believed when it happened.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textI was like, ‘Wow. Me?’Steve IshmaelIshmael eventually chose Syracuse over offers from Oregon and Tennessee in order to help a program trying to turn things around — a desire to help that defines him. He increased his weight from 178 pounds as a freshman last season to 205 now and is the Orange’s (3-5, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) leading receiver with 397 yards, 26 receptions and four touchdowns, three of which have come in the past four games.Ishmael wants to be a part of what makes Syracuse great. He accepts the current struggles, because ingrained in his decision to play for SU was his desire to turn things around and make an underdog a frontrunner.“When you see them change, that’s when you’ll be like, ‘Man, they really did it,’” Ishmael said. “… If I changed the channel and saw the Rockets vs. the Suns and the Suns are losing by 20, I’ll be like, ‘Come on Suns!’” In three games this year, Ishmael’s caught just one pass. But the Orange won two of those three and he understands it comes down to matchups. While he says there’s always room for improvement, especially in his route running, Ishmael takes pride in blocking for teammates when he doesn’t get the ball.Since the age of 5, Ishmael’s been working on his craft. He’d play outside with his older brothers Kemal, a safety on the Atlanta Falcons, and Trevor, a former player at Western Michigan.That’s how Ishmael learned to snatch passes out of the air. His fundamentals grew and his outstanding body control followed suit.On a 53-yard touchdown against Wake Forest on Sept. 12, Ishmael caught the ball behind the cornerback covering him in a cover two. The safety sprinted toward him to make a tackle, but Ishmael swung out his hips and avoided him.“I think it’s his ability to make plays when everything in front of him is a bit of a mess,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said, “which says a lot about his ability to see multiple things at once.”The reliability that Ishmael provides on the field is the same one he does off it.The summer entering Ishmael’s senior year of high school, neighbor and teammate Immel Rai needed a place to live due to family issues. The Ishmaels took Rai in, which was one of the only ways Rai could continue playing for North Miami Beach (Florida) High School. They treated him like any other kid in the family.I probably wouldn’t have made it through high school or made it anywhere without Steve and his family.Immel RaiOne time, former teammate Buthler Jean’s car broke down on Interstate 95 traveling north and he needed a jumpstart.Though Ishmael lived more than 20 minutes away, he was the first person Jean called.“I knew he would come through for me,” Jean said.In high school, Ishmael also played cornerback. In three seasons, only two catches were made against him, Jean said. Ishmael, though, never saw himself as a cornerback. His primary focus was wide receiver and that’s the position he considered playing in college.He did it anyway because it was a way to help his team.“That’s Steve for you,” Jean said.Ishmael, a devout Christian, recognizes the power faith has in bringing people closer together. He’s tried to drag teammates to church, roommate Ervin Philips said. Amid a season in which Syracuse has used four different quarterbacks, it’s his way of trying to build team chemistry.When the Orange lost to Pittsburgh on Oct. 24, Ishmael surpassed career highs in both receptions and yards. But in the fourth quarter, he dropped a crucial pass in the red zone that could have helped extend a drive to give SU the lead.Three days afterward, offensive coordinator Tim Lester said the only thing Ishmael thought about following the game was that one drop. Lester assured his receiver that SU wouldn’t have been competitive without him that day.He tried to cheer him up, but still, Lester took comfort in how focused Ishmael was on improving on his failure so it wouldn’t happen again.Ishmael roots for underdogs, but he doesn’t want Syracuse to be one anymore.“That’s the way he thinks,” Lester said, “and that’s a really good sign about what type of kid he is and where he can go.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 4, 2015 at 11:14 pm Contact Paul: email@example.com | @pschweds
“It’s been great,” said Kole Calhoun, who made his major league debut in 2012. “Coming up here and playing for one manager for seven years, it’s been a long time. You definitely build a relationship over that span. It’s been fun. We’ve had some good times and some bad times and he’s stayed pretty even-keeled. Definitely a lot of respect.”Tyler Skaggs, who started Saturday’s game, has played for Scioscia since 2014.“He’s definitely been an influential person in my career,” Skaggs said earlier this week. “We’ve had our ups and downs and butted heads. But he’s definitely been my biggest advocate at times.”Skaggs admitted to “mixed emotions” regarding Scioscia, but he felt overall positive about his time with him. “I think he’s been a big supporter and at times he’s been tough,” Skaggs said. “He’s tough on young guys. But I have a lot of respect for him.”Scioscia’s highlight reel was packed from 2000 to 2009, when the Angels went to the postseason six times, but it’s been more sparse lately. Scioscia’s Angels never had two losing seasons in a row before 2016-17, but on Saturday night they locked up their third straight losing season by losing their 82nd game.Skaggs, pitching his third game since missing a month recovering from a groin injury, gave up a two-run homer to Khris Davis in the first inning and got knocked out in the fourth.Skaggs allowed three runs in 3-1/3 innings, finishing his season with 4.02 ERA. Skaggs’ ERA had been under 4.00 the entire season until the end. It had been as low as 2.62 in late July, but then he twice tried to pitch through the groin injury and gave up 17 runs.“I thought the first half was fantastic,” Skaggs said after the game. “It was a career best for me. The second half … it’s tough to pitch in the big leagues when you’re healthy and it’s even tougher when you’re fighting through something. This last month has not been fun for me personally. It’s going to leave a nice sour taste in my mouth to work hard and come back next year stronger.”Although pitching through the injury proved to be a mistake, Skaggs nonetheless provided some hope for the future by pitching very well when he was healthy. He also avoided any arm trouble for the second straight year.“I think if he can apply the lessons that he’s learned and some of the trials and tribulations and some of the successes, he can get better,” Scioscia said. “Right now the Achilles Heel of Tyler is getting healthy and staying healthy… In the meantime, he pitched some great baseball for us.”The Angels cut the lead to 3-1 on Kaleb Cowart’s RBI single in the fifth, but then Jed Lowrie answered with a solo homer against Jim Johnson in the sixth.In the seventh, the Angels scored a run and loaded the bases for Mike Trout, but Trout hit a flyout to deep right field to end the inning.
