Klopp has spoken of his surprise at how intense English football is after taking charge at Anfield in October and he goes head-to-head with the league’s longest-serving manager on Wednesday. Wenger, who is approaching the 20th anniversary of his arrival in north London, was already held in high esteem by Klopp, but the former Borussia Dortmund boss admits his admiration has grown even further. Press Association Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is in awe of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s longevity in the Barclays Premier League. “In December and now in January we have been consistent and we go into a very important part of the season because we play many games and that consistency is a good basis to go into the next game with the right belief. “The consistency of our results is very important. Therefore it was important to win on Saturday (against Sunderland in the FA Cup) and not to break that belief. “It was good for me to see some players that have played less and to be down 1-0 and respond in the way we did and have an outstanding second half. It was all a very positive basis in preparation for Liverpool.” Klopp said: “My respect goes up day by day because it’s really intensive to work in the Premier League, especially in a team with international matches (for their players) too. “He had always my biggest respect but now it’s a little bit bigger since I’m here. That’s really a brilliant job he’s done – 19-and-a-half years. “He’s a high-quality manager, one of the best in the world for sure. This long period, it’s really rare that you can do this but he did. He’s a football maniac, in the best (sense of the word). “It was always a challenge to play against him and again a challenge that I’m looking forward to.” Klopp and Wenger have become well acquainted with each other in recent years, having met in the Champions League group stages in 2011, 2013 and 2014 when the former managed Borussia Dortmund. The Arsenal boss claimed three wins to Klopp’s two after the first meeting finished all square. Another victory for Wenger would boost Arsenal’s hopes of a first title in 12 years and the Frenchman is keen to prolong his side’s winning run to four games. “The momentum creates confidence and confidence is vital at that level,” said Wenger.
Oh, the madness. And no, it’s not March.Given the perplexity of NCAA college football this year with all of the upsets, slipups and outright parity, it’s a wonder that there are still any teams without a loss. Seven bewildering weeks into the season and just three of the preseason top 10 teams remain in there. None of those teams remain undefeated.Since it’s nearly impossible to accurately predict what will come of the remaining six weeks, I took the liberty of dishing out a number of midseason classifications that describe a glimpse of what has already gone down.Walt Disney”s Cinderella Team: — South FloridaA mere 11 years ago, the South Florida Bulls football team was just an idea. Entering the scene for the first time in 1997 as a 1-AA independent, USF quickly climbed the ladder to Division I football in 2001. And now, at No. 2 nationally, it is in contention for the BCS title.The Arizona Diamondbacks of the college football world could become the fastest program in Division-IA history to play for a national championship. Controlling its own destiny and with only a fading Rutgers team, Connecticut, Cincinnati and Louisville on the docket that could conceivably dash its historical run, South Florida’s season has the makings of the next “Hoosiers.”Before I get ahead of myself, let’s take a look at what the Bulls have done. South Florida snuck past No. 17 Auburn on the road 26-23 Sept. 8. The win gave the Bulls their first national ranking. Two weeks later USF upset No. 5 West Virginia for the second consecutive year in a 21-13 turnover fest to move to sixth nationally.Every week, a new travesty occurs in the top 25, and every week South Florida gets a little bit closer to its prince charming.Harry Houdini”s Disappearing Act: — WisconsinReturning 18 starters from its 12-1 team a year ago, Wisconsin was ranked No. 7 to start the season. Despite losing its starting quarterback John Stocco to eligibility, UW was returning most of its nationally ranked defense and formidable offense. The season started off shaky as the defense clearly wasn’t the same unit as last season. But the biggest thing was that the Badgers continued to win when other teams lost. As a result they moved up to No. 5 in the country.However, just two weeks and two losses later — including a disturbing 38-7 defeat Saturday against Penn State — Wisconsin is off the radar. Hidden among the numerous questions the team will have to answer in the remaining weeks is whether the team still has anything left to play for.The reason I say this is the players admittedly quit after halftime against the Nittany Lions.”A lot of the guys just weren’t into [the game] completely,” right tackle Eric Vanden Heuvel said. “Once the game started getting away from us, I think a lot of us kind of just gave up.”Certainly the besieged Badgers have been plagued by injuries and misfortune, but for a first half that started so promising, it’s playing out to be one to forget.Tommy John”s Comeback Kid: MichiganThe Wolverines’ season has been almost an exact replica of the Badgers’ but in the reverse direction. Starting as the preseason favorite to win the Big Ten, Michigan proceeded to lose two straight games in a fashion similar to Wisconsin’s most recent losses: Appalachian State upended Michigan in a game the Wolverines should have won and would have won had it not been for a blocked field goal try in the game’s final seconds. Then the floodgates opened against Oregon. Michigan lost 39-7.Rumors began swirling that head coach Lloyd Carr would be fired and that since the senior class’s chance at winning the national championship was dashed, there was no reason to continue playing.Behind the Heisman-worthy Mike Hart, the Wolverines stuck with it, though. They have run off five consecutive victories to remain one of two teams in Big Ten conference play that remains unbeaten.Unable to contend for a national championship, Michigan still proved there is something worth playing for.Oedipus” Victim of Circumstance: — Florida, LSU…… — SEC in generalForced to play other highly talented teams within its conference, the SEC, Florida and LSU have fallen on hard times. Although they are two of the best teams in the nation (as their top-six rankings would indicate heading into the season), the Gators and Tigers have three losses between them with conceivably more to come.At one point or another this season, nine of the 12 teams within the SEC have been nationally ranked and seven are currently in the top 25 (No. 5 LSU, No. 6 South Carolina, No. 8 Kentucky, No. 14 Florida, No. 18 Auburn, No. 20 Tennessee and No. 21 Georgia). Clearly, the fact that so many teams are loaded dumbs down the entire conference and makes weaker ones (i.e, the Big Ten and the Big East) look better.Steady Eddy: — Ohio State, Boston CollegeAs vexing as the new rankings were for just about everyone — media, fans, SEC, Pac 10 — to see the new top three, there is some truth to why they’re there and others aren’t. Aside from the obvious — Ohio State and Boston College are undefeated– they both have played consistently well all season long.The Buckeyes’ tightest game this season was against the Akron Zips. They held a 3-2 halftime lead. From there, OSU took over and won 20-2. The Eagles in their own right haven’t faced any adversity either. Their biggest scare was a 14-7 first-quarter deficit to Wake Forest in the season’s opening game. A seven-point deficit is it.Although not everyone is ready to give these two teams respect, they surely have proven that of all the teams in college football, they are the steadiest when it comes to wins.Kevin is a seniorr double majoring in journalism and economics.

The elected members of Undergraduate Student Government, whose positions will be official on Tuesday, receive stipends paid by the undergraduates of the student body through the $57.50 student programming fee.This year, USG President Monish Tyagi will receive $11,032 and USG Vice President Logan Lachman will receive $8,826 in compensation. The presidential and vice presidential stipends were $10,000 and $8,000 for the 2006-2007 academic year but have been adjusted for cost of living each year.The 12 USG Senators each receive $2,206, USG and Program Board directors receive $4,413 and other USG officials receive comparable stipends. The executive director of Program Board receives the same stipend as the USG vice president.Nearly half of the $1.8-million budget goes to Program Board, which is overseen by USG and consists of committees and assemblies tasked with creating events for the student population.“The USG-funded events are open to all undergraduates,” said USG Treasurer Elton Kwok. “Anything that USG funds — go ahead and go to those events and student activities. There’s concerts, free shows, discussions and a lot of people don’t take advantage of the fact that their student activity fee goes toward these events.”USG allocates its budget at the end of the academic year by assuming there will be 15,000 undergraduates paying the student programming fee. The treasurer adjusts the allocations once the actual number of undergraduates is determined.This year, about $75,000 of almost $90,000 in originally unallocated funds went to program board assemblies. Even when determining the budget last year, USG increased funding for several Program Board assemblies and committees.The Black Student Assembly added $20,000 to its $45,000 budget, the Asian Pacific American Students Assembly added $13,500 to its $57,000 budget and the Academic Culture Assembly added $7,000 to its $38,000 budget.Several committees also received more funds, as the Special Events Committee budget went from $49,500 to $67,000 and Trojan Pride’s funds grew from $25,000 to $29,500. The Concerts Committee budget increased from $215,000 to $250,000 because its events are some of USG’s “best attended,” Kwok said.Each assembly reports attendance and estimates the cost per attendee for each of the more than 2,000 events held by Program Board assemblies and committees. Trojan Pride estimates a 67-cent cost per head, while the Women’s Student Assembly averaged $60 so far this year, which Kwok said will likely be less by the end of the year.“Most of the assemblies spend about $5 to $10 per head,” Kwok said. “With concerts and performing arts, you’re paying for a name, so it’s [more expensive]. If students go to three or four of those events each semester, they’re getting their money’s worth.”This year, USG has saved some money by renegotiating the cost of legal counseling services, which are available to students on Mondays. USG split that service fee and some administrative costs with the Graduate Student Government because many graduate students use the legal service and USG shares an office with GSG, Kwok said. The negotiations ended in November.USG also saved money by integrating administrative costs with Program Board because the two moved into the same office last year but had not changed the budget to reflect this until this year.President Monish Tyagi said this shows “streamlining” with Program Board.“One of our biggest goals is for everyone to see how it’s all one organization,” Tyagi said. “It’s a great internal step for office needs to start coming through one administrative budget.”Kwok said that USG went through the budget line by line to determine changes before submitting its proposal to the senate, which unanimously approved it last April.“We really looked at how an assembly or committee performed in the past years,” Kwok said. “We made sure that the new initiatives or programming events that attracted more crowds would be continued.”Michael Jackson, vice president for Student Affairs, said undergraduate students manage the funds well.“The budget is sound and focuses spending on the priorities that student leaders and the university think are important,” Jackson said. “We appreciate the diligence of those who developed the budget and the serious way they carried out their work.”Though the programming fee increased $1 last year to account for inflation, adding around $42,000 to the budget, several organizations under USG have seen increases of different proportions based on each organization’s performance.“We looked at the different committees and the line items that are going to benefit the most students possible,” Tyagi said. “We want to make sure we give all those areas an adequate amount of money to fund activities and programs for the students we represent.”
Syracuse (2-1) kicks off at No. 25 Louisiana State (2-1) at 7 p.m. from Tiger Stadium or “Death Valley,” where 97,289 fans watched LSU in its home opener nearly two weeks ago. LSU has won 48 consecutive games over nonconference opponents at home in Tiger Stadium. The Tigers are coming off a blowout loss at No. 17 Mississippi State, while SU secured a 41-17 win over Central Michigan in Week 3.Saturday night’s SU-LSU game will air on ESPN2 and LSU leads the all-time series, 2-1.Joe Bloss (2-1)A for effortLSU 38, Syracuse 21Syracuse has played well against some good teams in recent years. It has done so at home, with LSU’s visit two years ago providing a fine example. This game will follow a similar trend and the Orange will hang around. But the atmosphere of Death Valley — which we got only a small taste of when Tiger fans inundated a corner of the Carrier Dome in 2015 — is not something SU can duplicate in practice and that will show in the result. Reality will catch up. LSU will win because it is the better team. There’s no shame in that.Sam Fortier (2-1)Baton RouseLSU 34, Syracuse 24AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis forecast hinges heavily on how good banged-up LSU running back Derrius Guice feels. This week he seemed to pick petals off a flower to decide will-he, won’t-he play. Now he will, but a four-year LSU beat writer said the Tigers are coming off perhaps the worst game he’s ever seen the team play. That Mississippi State loss, combined with the fact that LSU’s young defense may struggle with Syracuse’s pace, heartens a two-score game prediction. The Orange won’t win, but it will cover the -21.5 point spread and sneakily post a more impressive showing than expected.Matthew Gutierrez (2-1)Go TeamLSU 35, Syracuse 17,Initially this appeared to be a lopsided, hope-you-get-out-of-it-OK type game for Syracuse. But based on last weekend’s SU win and LSU’s loss, this matchup presumes to be a bit closer. Maybe within three possessions. LSU will get its 49th consecutive nonconference home win in front of about 100,000 screaming fans. Still for SU, there can be little victories from the trip: national and recruiting exposure (primetime ESPN2), a quality test ahead of a winnable game at North Carolina State and, most of all, the chance to grow on a big stage.Tomer Langer (2-1)Welcome to the JungleLSU 44, Syracuse 24The song that so frequently greeted Syracuse as a game started in the Carrier Dome is probably a more apt description for the environment the team will find itself on Saturday night. ESPN ran a recent article stating that LSU’s home-field advantage was overrated. It cited its poor performance at home against conference opponents. LSU plays in the Southeastern conference, arguably the best college football conference in the country. SU would struggle against most SEC teams, but at home to No. 25 LSU is going to be tricky. And one thing ESPN’s article did mention was that the home-field advantage became more apparent at night. The Orange will be able to compete, but I don’t see a win on Saturday. The most important thing is that SU’s key players leave the game healthy, an issue the last few times the Orange has matched up with Top 25 teams.

Comments The Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.After a 5-7 season in which Syracuse failed to match its preseason anticipation and won just two Atlantic Coast Conference games, the Orange kick off an unprecedented 11-game campaign on Saturday at North Carolina. SU will play 10 ACC games and one nonconference game against Liberty, and it opens the renovated Carrier Dome on Sept. 26 with Georgia Tech. Here’s how The Daily Orange’s beat writers think Syracuse will fare this season, assuming the full year is completed:Anthony DabbundoStalledRecord: 4-7A quick glance at the Syracuse schedule, specifically the road games, doesn’t give a ton of optimism toward the Orange’s chances in 2020. They’ll be double-digit underdogs in all five road games, but the schedule does feature enough winnable games at home that, if SU’s offense takes a step forward after the multiple steps back it took in 2019, they should win a few games. Tommy DeVito will have a solid second season as full time Syracuse starter, while tight end Aaron Hackett and Luke Benson become bright spots in an otherwise average SU offense. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s front six will struggle to stop the run, but the secondary will force enough turnovers to keep the Orange in games at home against similarly talented opposition. Syracuse loses all five road games, but grabs wins against Liberty, Boston College, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest en route to a mediocre 4-7 record. After a 1-3 start with a few ugly losses to UNC and Pittsburgh, the Orange get healthier up front on the offensive line, improve in its defensive scheme and avoid a disaster of a season. In the end, 2020’s football season will be remembered for all the circumstances and events that happened off the field, rather than what happened on it. Danny EmermanYou can do itRecord: 2-9There’s a scene in “The Waterboy” where it’s revealed that main character Bobby Boucher, played by Adam Sandler, didn’t go to high school and is therefore ruled ineligible by the NCAA. To that revelation, a townie (Rob Schneider) exclaims, “Oh no! We suck again!” While Syracuse won’t be missing a phenom middle linebacker (though it is still possible a star player opts out because of COVID-19), the Orange face a similarly dire outlook as Boucher’s fictional University of Louisiana team. SU has talent, but deficiencies on the defensive line and at wide receiver, a big question mark in the offensive line, and a tough schedule dig Syracuse a hole. Winnable games include Liberty, Duke, Boston College, Georgia Tech and NC State, of which Syracuse will win two and lead Otto’s Army to quote Rob Schneider. Adam HillmanThe kids will be alrightRecord: 4-7This Syracuse team surely doesn’t have the expectations of the 2019 one, and players have been quick to point out how they have a chip on their shoulder. But, I don’t think there’s enough experience on this roster to have a winning season. Winning on the road in this conference requires poise, and there aren’t enough guys on this roster who’ve played key minutes. The talent is promising. Mikel Jones was a 4-star coming out of high school, Taj Harris has flashed in spurts, and Matthew Bergeron can be the lynchpin of the offensive line. The defense could win the Orange games but, I don’t see how they string together six wins in a season with 10 conference games. It’s difficult to see how SU wins on the road against Clemson, UNC, Notre Dame, Pitt or Louisville. The Orange will defeat Liberty, NC State, Duke and Georgia Tech — all home games. In what might be a wasted year anyway due to COVID-19, it might not be so bad to rebuild. They’ll end up with a losing record, but SU will have plenty of positives to take to 2021.

Shortly after the Lakers laced up their sneakers, worked up a sweat and studied film, Steve Nash sensed the peaceful surroundings.A season after a lack of training camp under coach Mike D’Antoni contributed toward a first-round flameout to the San Antonio Spurs, the Lakers have yearned for this moment. The time when the Lakers have a month to iron out concepts. The time when they can play without worrying about results. The time when they can build chemistry instead of mixing in formulas that don’t work.The environment appeared so striking during the begnning of the Lakers’ training camp that Nash couldn’t help but point it out to D’Antoni.“He told me, ‘It’s a little bit different,’ ” D’Antoni said recently. “I go, ‘Yeah, it feels different.’ ” Just a little.The Lakers entered last season rife with expectations stemming from key acquisitions in Nash and Dwight Howard joining a star-studded cast featuring Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace.The Lakers enter this season with a panel of ESPN writers predicting they’ll finish in 12th place out of 15 Western Conference teams. The Lakers spent all of last year’s training camp under Mike Brown learning elements of the Princeton-based offense, a complicated system with cuts, passing and various reads based on how opposing teams defend. The Lakers then fired Brown following a 1-4 start and brought in D’Antoni, whose pick-and-roll-heavy offense provided a stark contrast in pace and simplicity.But the Lakers had little time to learn it. Nash, who ran D’Antoni’s offense well enough to earn two NBA MVPs in four seasons with the Phoenix Suns, stayed sidelined for seven weeks because of a fractured left leg, leaving the Lakers without a significant piece to build chemistry. “We never really ran Mike’s system last year,” Nash said. “That’s part of finding an identity is that through personnel, no training camp and very little practice time with all the injuries, it was hard to get Mike’s system going. It was hard to find that identity.”Meanwhile, the Lakers openly bickered. Players balked at D’Antoni’s fast-paced system. Howard lamented not being featured enough on offense. The Lakers remained frustrated when the litany of injuries never ended.“It was hard to really feel a lot of positive energy,” Nash said. “It always seemed like a challenge for us. This year, it feels a little bit more like a team. Who knows how good we’ll be. But the early energy and vibe is really positive.”The Lakers see that in various ways.D’Antoni estimated that “90 percent” of the Lakers’ roster participated in the team’s informal workouts in the past month. Nash praised how D’Antoni finds the right balance in training camp between teaching and ensuring enough rest to prevent burnout. Aside from the Lakers’ three two-a-day sessions this week, D’Antoni’s practices last two hours and entail a mix of film study, individual drills and full-court scrimmages in an efficient manner.What difference will a full training camp do for D’Antoni?“The difference will be we won’t have to hunt and peck and go through each personality,” he said, “and figure out what gets them going and what doesn’t.”The Lakers went through that process last year with mixed results. D’Antoni featured Gasol as a reserve in favor of Earl Clark both because of Gasol’s ailing knees and D’Antoni’s preference for a smaller and quicker lineup. Bryant took over ball-handling abilities, while Nash became a shooting guard in hopes to create an offense less dependent on Bryant. The Lakers soon closed out the season 28-12 by leaning on Bryant’s heroics and a more post-oriented game with Howard and Gasol.“As successful as we were the second half of the season … we never found an identity,” Nash said. “We’d always find a way to win some games probably on some talent. But there was never any confidence or identity among the group.”This season features a roster of young and athletic players on one-year contracts, including Nick Young, Wesley Johnson, Jordan Farmar, Shawne Williams and Xavier Henry, eager to earn a role and possibly a long-term deal. The Lakers also have center Chris Kaman, a 10-year veteran who remains dependable on mid-range jumpers and pick-and-roll plays. Beyond Gasol starting at center and Nash starting at point guard, D’Antoni has kept the other spots open. Kaman, Jordan Hill, Johnson and Henry will compete for minutes at power forward, while Young and Johnson will fight for time at small forward. Steve Blake and Farmar could start at shooting guard if Bryant stays sidelined while rehabbing his left Achilles tendon.Meanwhile, the Lakers don’t have the drama surrounding Howard’s future becoming a constant backdrop.“There’s a lot of new guys who want to maximize their opportunity, find out what their role is going to be and fight for that role,” Gasol said. “Veteran guys are all eager to prove ourselves and continue to be the best we can be and be the top players in the league. We want put it all together and create that chemisty, bond and unity.”Will that be enough?Bryant remains unsure if he will play in the Lakers’ season opener Oct. 29 against the Clippers, let alone any of the team’s eight preseason games through Oct. 25. The Lakers are gradually increasing the workload for Gasol and Nash as they recover from their respective hamstring and knee injuries. The Lakers also leave Oct. 11 for an eight-day trip to play exhibition games in Beijing and Shanghai.“In January, nobody is going to say, yeah, that China trip just kicked our butt,” D’Antoni said, laughing.The Lakers may say that for other reasons. They have a good-riddance attitude toward Howard. But his departure to Houston, coupled with World Peace being waived through the amnesty provision, leaves the Lakers with a dropoff in talent.Can the Lakers overcome that?“It’s going to have to if we want to be successful and exceed expectations,” Nash said. “The group is going to have to have a real cohesion and spirit about it in order to overcome the drop in talent. But it’s exciting to have another opportunity after last year. Not only was last year unsuccessful, it was also painful. It wasn’t a lot of fun and positive as it should be.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
Adnan Catic, aka Felix Sturm, announced on his Facebook page after accusations that he was doped up during the match against Fedor Chudinov when he became world boxing champion by WBA version in middleweight division.“They found 3- Hydroxystanzolol Glucuronide! A substance used to pump muscles and gain weight. It took them more than 8 weeks to inform me that I was positive. Usually it takes no more than 2 to 3 weeks,” wrote Catic.He wondered how Lucas Brown, who fought against Ruslan Chagaev on the 6th of March, obtained his results after only two weeks, and it turned out that he was positive.“When it comes to me, the analysis lasted 4 weeks longer than usual, until it turned out that I was positive?! I obtained more than 100 doping tests of blood and urine samples in my career and all of them were negative. Many tests were unannounced,” wrote Catic.He said that he will do everything to prove his innocence.“When things calm down, you will get a detailed report on my website. When I get new information, I will publish them on this site,” said the world champion.(Source: vijesti.ba)

Miami-Dade Police reportedly shot and killed a man they described as being a fugitive from North Carolina, after the man shot an officer in his bulletproof vest.Investigators tracked him down to a house on the 25500 block of SW 147th Avenue, where the 56-year-old man barricaded himself inside.At one point, Miami-Dade’s Special Response Team was called in to assist hostage negotiators, but were unable to convince the man to surrender.SRT officers then entered the house. The man “opened fire, striking an SRT officer on his ballistic vest,” according to a police press release.A firefight unfolded and the man was ultimately shot and killed.“The officer did not sustain any injuries,” police said.Officials did not provide any details or the man’s identity, but said that he was wanted for a shooting in North Carolina.
