North Carolina coach Mack Brown has knee surgery done by former player

first_img“We had been planning to have this procedure done in February, but after accepting the job here at Carolina that obviously wasn’t going to be possible. We did want to get it taken care of and this window on the calendar made the most sense. I don’t expect this to slow me down at all.”North Carolina will open the season against South Carolina on Aug. 31. Brown first coached the Tar Heels from 1988 to 1997 and at Texas from 1998 to 2013. He then stepped away from football and served as an ESPN analyst before being hired to replace Larry Fedora in November.”First off, how cool is it that one of our former players replaced my knee yesterday?” Brown said. “We talk about building young men so they can be productive husbands, fathers and citizens. Carolina produces a lot of special people and I’m happy we were able to play a small part in Mike’s development because we counted on him and he, along with the rest of the surgical and anesthetic team, did a tremendous job. Dr. Michael Bolognesi, who played defensive back for Brown from 1989 to 1993, performed the surgery on the 67-year-old coach.”The surgery went really well with no issues or complications and he’ll begin a standard rehabilitation program in Chapel Hill immediately,” Bolognesi said in a release. “We don’t expect there to be any need to alter his summer schedule as it relates to team and football operations.”center_img North Carolina coach Mack Brown has seen a lot of players come and go during his coaching career, but recently ran into one in an unlikely place: the operating room.The team announced Tuesday, Brown underwent a right knee replacement surgery Monday performed by one of his former players.last_img read more

Ohio State investigating usedcar purchases athletic director Gene Smiths lips are sealed

More bad news has found the Ohio State athletic program, and administrators aren’t talking. OSU will investigate used-car purchases made by dozens of university athletes at two local car dealerships, The Columbus Dispatch reported Saturday. Though OSU officers refused to speak to The Lantern about the university’s response to the investigations, representatives from other Big Ten schools were open. Gary Bargen, the associate athletic director of compliance at Nebraska, indicated that compliance departments at different universities would handle the situation differently. “Depending upon the circumstances, whether there is specific evidence that would lead one to believe that (violations occurred), it would just be strictly (up to) their compliance department and the personnel as far as how they are going to go about finding that information,” he said. OSU associate athletic director for compliance Doug Archie and athletic director Gene Smith declined to answer questions. OSU’s chief enforcer of NCAA rules and outside experts will examine at least 50 deals made by salesman Aaron Kniffin at Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Auto Direct over the past six years. Representatives at both dealerships were not available for comment. Kniffin and Auto Direct owner Jason Goss both have attended seven football games as player guests in the past. The sales would be in violation of NCAA rules if the players received any benefits or discounts based on their status as OSU athletes. Determining such violations may be difficult given the variability of used car sales. “The OSU compliance office has strong and active monitoring programs for student-athlete vehicle registration that go above and beyond NCAA requirements and are among the most robust in the nation,” Archie said in a statement released Saturday. The Dispatch reported that Kniffin sold cars to former defensive linemen Thaddeus Gibson, Robert Rose and Doug Worthington and former running backs Chris Wells and Maurice Wells. Current wide receiver DeVier Posey and basketball player William Buford were also reported as having made car purchases from Kniffin along with multiple members of current and former players’ families. Student-athletes are permitted to purchase cars and are required by the OSU compliance department to report the make, model and price of the car along with any co-signers, Archie’s statement said. Gibson’s was the most concerning of the purchases. Currently a member of the San Francisco 49ers, Gibson acquired a Chrysler 300 with fewer than 20,000 miles from Auto Direct that was titled to the then-sophomore for $0 according to public records, The Dispatch reported. Gibson told The Dispatch that he has been making, and continues to make, payments on the car. The football program already has endured NCAA investigation for improper benefits received by five players — Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, Solomon Thomas, Mike Adams and Posey — that resulted in a five-game suspension for the players at the start of the 2011 season. Coach Jim Tressel knew of the violations, and the program is currently under investigation for his failure to report the information. Tressel also is suspended for the season’s first five games and will attend a compliance seminar June 6–10 in Tampa, Fla. read more

first_imgWith the upcoming match against Wolverhampton at Etihad Stadium, Pep Guardiola wants his Manchester City players to be wary.Even though it will be a Monday match and we are still a couple of days away from it, it’s inevitable to get excited for the game between Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers from next Monday as Pep Guardiola spoke about it this Friday.During the press conference from this day after the squad’s training session, the Catalan manager had some very strong praise for Nuno Espirito Santo’s boys and demanded the highest focus from all his players.The Citizens cannot afford to lose another match in the Premier League this early in the season, because doing so would mean that Liverpool will have an easier road to the title during the most crucial part of the year.Pep Guardiola knew that winning the game against the Reds last week would only be the beginning of the road for the Citizens, he knows that the match against Wolverhampton is one of the most dangerous ones for them because of how well their rival has been playing this season.This same squad ha already defeated both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in the Premier League so far, they are playing spectacular football and they are considered to be English football’s underdogs.Ain’t no Friday like a press conference Friday!Hear from Pep soon 💬#MCIWOL #mancity pic.twitter.com/FZlDG6LPrU— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 11, 2019Maybe they don’t have the fire-power to actually win a trophy this season, but Wolverhampton does have the skill to at least give a few upsets to any squad from the Top 6 as they have already done with two of the biggest London-based clubs.For Pep Guardiola, staying focused now that they have managed to get out of a negative streak will mean everything for them. Most importantly for next Monday, winning against a squad like Wolves should be a great confidence boost.“We realized [how good they were] when we played them in the EFL Cup last season and again early this season,” the former Barcelona boss told a pre-match news conference via Four Four Two.“They are strong physically, good on set pieces, have incredible players on the counter-attack, they don’t just do that with two or three, they have four or five.”“And when you are tired they can bring on two new players to do that.”“They defend deep, they switch play, they control many areas and with [Ruben] Neves and [Joao] Moutinho they can shoot from outside the box.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“That’s why they are doing incredibly well,” he added.”Es un recién ascendido que lo está haciendo muy bien”.Pep Guardiola sobre nuestro rival del lunes, el @WolvesEspanol. #MCIWOL pic.twitter.com/hyGrQESOyX— Manchester City (@ManCityES) January 11, 2019Wolves are coming into this match with their confidence through the roof, as they just completed one of the major upsets of the season in the FA Cup after eliminating Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool at Molineux Stadium.Just imagining the reaction from everybody if Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad defeated the reigning Premier League champions, is something that people would go nuts over.But Pep Guardiola does have something slightly wrong, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho are not the only key players that he needs to beware.Mexican striker Raul Jimenez is the most important player in Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad this season, he has proved it by being at the very top of the list in regards to goals and assists throughout this breakthrough Premier League season for his career.If Pep Guardiola isn’t already looking for ways of how to stop him, the Catalan manager has another thing coming his way on Monday at Etihad Stadium.It should be very interesting to see what the Premier League’s dark horse will be able to do against one of the most powerful clubs in the country.PEP 💬 (Wolves are) strong, physical, good at set pieces, strong on the counter attack.When you are tired in the last minutes, they put on new players. They defend deep, switch play, and control many areas.— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 11, 2019What do you expect from this match between Manchester City and Wolverhampton on Monday?
