Turnovers doom Pitt in 56-28 loss to Georgia Tech

(AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh’s mistakes kept piling up, each one more inexplicable than the last.Chad Voytik diving for a first down. James Conner inches from the end zone. Tyler Boyd stretching for an extra yard. Each of them effort plays by the three most vital parts of the Panther offense. Each of them ending with the same result: a Georgia Tech defender on top of the ball and the Yellow Jackets’ offense sprinting onto the field.Five times in the first quarter the Panthers fumbled. Five times Georgia Tech recovered, converting four of the recoveries into touchdowns in a surprisingly easy 56-28 win on Saturday. Pitt’s five fumbles lost in the opening 15 minutes tied an FBS record.“Kind of a fluke I guess having that many fumbles in a row,” Conner said. “That’s part of the game though.”One that further muddled an already murky ACC Coastal Division. Pitt’s chance to create a bit of separation ended before it began. The Panthers (4-4, 2-2) trailed by 28-0 barely 5 minutes in and never drew closer than 14 the rest of the way.“Now we’ve dug ourselves a hole early in the game and in the season now,” Pitt safety Ray Vinopal said. “So we’re going to have to get it going here. One more loss puts us out of ACC contention.”Probably not in a division where six of the seven teams have two losses and the other – Duke – plays in Pittsburgh next week.Still, any momentum the Panthers generated after a rousing 21-16 win over Virginia Tech nine days ago quickly vanished. Athletic director Steve Pederson tried to give the program an emotional jolt on Friday, announcing that the team would play with the old school “Pitt” script logo on its helmets, a nod to the school’s storied past.The lift never happened. Not even close.Conner shook off a twisted right knee to rush for 119 yards and three scores to go over 1,000 yards on the season. The moment that will stick with him, however, is the one yard he didn’t get.Trailing by a touchdown early in the first quarter, Conner appeared ready to tie the game when he took a handoff from Voytik and darted for the end zone 75 yards away. He only made it 74. Conner was about to cross the goal line when Georgia Tech’s D.J. White punched the ball free. It rolled out of the end zone for a touchback. Three plays later the Yellow Jackets were up 14-0 after a 79-yard pass from Justin Thomas to Charles Perkins.Conner admitted he took a peek at the scoreboard at the end of the longest run of his career.“Looked like everybody was behind me so I thought I had it,” he said. “Next time I’ll sprint to the back of the end zone. It’s a lesson learned.”A painful one.Broderick Snoddy ran for 82 yards and three touchdowns and Georgia Tech (6-2, 3-2 ACC) snapped a two-game losing streak as its triple-option offense crushed the nation’s fourth-ranked defense. Pitt came in allowing 280 yards per game. The Yellow Jackets more than doubled that, racking up 612 yards, including 465 on the ground.“Just guys not in the spots they were in all week in practice,” Vinopal said. “That’s how you get beat and we got beat bad.”Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson challenged his defense after the Yellow Jackets gave up 579 yards in a loss to North Carolina last week, saying his team needed to become more aggressive.Pitt did its part to help during a comical opening 10 minutes, finding increasingly elaborate ways to give the Yellow Jackets the ball.Snoddy’s 34-yard sprint after a Boyd fumble made it 28-0 with 9:44 left in the first quarter.The Pitt student section grew so exasperated it chanted “Hold That Ball” and sarcastically roared when the Panthers executed a play without turning it over. It didn’t last as Voytik botched a snap on the Panthers’ fifth possession and the Yellow Jackets fell on it once again, giving them five fumble recoveries in the first quarter, or four more than they had the entire season coming in.The Panthers regrouped to draw within 28-14 behind a pair of short scoring runs by Conner. Pitt had a chance to draw closer late in the second quarter when it drove to the Georgia Tech 43. Facing fourth-and-3, coach Paul Chryst opted to punt.“I didn’t want to give them a short field and it turns into a three-score game,” Chryst said.It did anyway.The Yellow Jackets missed a field goal to end the half but momentum had shifted. Georgia Tech opened the second half with a 75-yard touchdown drive, the final 28 coming on Snoddy’s third score that made it 35-14.last_img read more

10 months agoMilivojevic full of pride leading Crystal Palace to win at Man City

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Milivojevic full of pride leading Crystal Palace to win at Man Cityby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace captain Luka Milivojevic was delighted with victory at Manchester City on Saturday.The Serb scored from the spot for the shock 3-2 win.”This result is very special, I am very proud and after the last game against Leicester at home we went on and got the win today. To be honest, you try to do something but you don’t expect a lot from these kind of games but when you score three goals here you can say you deserved to win,” said Milivojevic as he heaped praise on the second Palace goal, an excellent strike from 30 yards out by Andros Townsend.“It was an amazing goal, one of the best I have seen in my career whilst I have been out on the pitch playing in a game”. Milivojevic missed a spot-kick against City 12 months ago in a home draw but he made no mistake in front of the 800 Palace fans inside the stadium.He also told cpfc.co.uk: “I was not nervous, I decided where I wanted to place the ball and I think that goal was massive because that going in gave us more confidence for the second half, Let’s say they possibly gave up a little bit after that goal but then they score late on which put a lot of pressure on us. It wasn’t an easy game but as I say we are all so proud of this victory and we now know the next game is massive for us. (against Cardiff City) I want to thank our fans and I think they deserved this victory.” last_img read more

Report: No Player At February’s NFL Combine Failed Drug Test

first_imgAdam Schefter sits in front of his book case during ESPN appearance.SchefterVirtually every year during the NFL Draft process, a few high-profile prospects fail drug tests from February’s combine. That is, until 2016. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, not one player tested positive at this year’s event in Indianapolis, something that is almost unprecedented.For the first time in recent memory, NFL has notified all 32 teams that no player tested positive at February combine, per league sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 25, 2016No matter where you fall on the subject of recreational drug use, most would hope that a player can avoid failing a test that they know is coming at the combine. Almost every draft class has a few players fail and see their stock suffer, so congratulations to the class of 2016 for bucking that trend.last_img read more
