Babers: Dungey had ‘blurred vision’ before departure

first_img Published on September 15, 2018 at 5:20 pm Contact Josh: jlschafe@syr.edu | @Schafer_44 With just under five minutes remaining in the first half of Syracuse’s 30-7 win over Florida State, Eric Dungey left the game and was evaluated by trainers. He didn’t return.After the game, SU head coach Dino Babers said his starting quarterback remained out of the game due to a “blurred vision.”“It’s like a boxer getting thumbed in the eye or something like that,” Babers said. “He just had some blurred vision in one eye and that’s not healthy to be out there in that atmosphere if you don’t have all your faculties with you so just based off of that we just decided to make a change.”On Dungey’s last play of the game, he rushed for six yards before diving to the ground. As the play concluded a Florida State player dove on top of Dungey. Babers said postgame that the hit and Dungey’s injury were unrelated and noted that Dungey had already been playing with impaired vision.“I don’t know if it was a thumb or a finger, you know when you’re running the quarterback and who knows,” Babers said. “You get in some piles and things happen in piles.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDungey finished the game 7-of-15 for 75 yards which was accompanied by 33 rushing yards. Tommy DeVito, who threw and ran a touchdown, replaced Dungey. Syracuse scored five times with DeVito at quarterback. Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, March 8, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Not a bad day today, with south winds developing and helping to move temps just a bit farther to the upside. We are still dealing with some leftover clouds in southern Ohio, mostly from I-70 south, that are an offshoot of the little spat of snow that came across far southern parts the state overnight last night. However, those clouds should be breaking up easily by mid to late morning, and we end up at least partly sunny. Sun will mix with clouds all day in the northern half of the state.The forecast going forward is nearly unchanged this morning, showing good confidence and good continuity. Clouds will build tomorrow and south winds really ramp up taking temps to slightly above normal levels, at least for a little while. Rain pushes into western Ohio late afternoon, and those rains really spread quickly from there through the overnight. We will see our heaviest action between sunset and 3 AM Sunday. Moisture won’t be completely done until we get toward sunrise Sunday, but we are fully done with rain before any daytime activities commence on Sunday morning. Rain totals remain at .4”-1.3” over 100% of the state. The map at right shows precipitation potential through early Sunday morning (before sunrise). Sunday turns out partly sunny as clearing settles in, but the winds stay strong on the backside of the system, turning west or even northwest and averaging 15-30 mph for Sunday afternoon. Monday and Tuesday are partly sunny and chilly, but winds will not be an issue.Our next system is still on track for midweek. This event is where we are seeing a few tweaks this morning, though. Our initial look at Wednesday and even the first part of Thursday are relatively unchanged for Ohio.  Clouds build through the day Wednesday, and we will see the chance of scattered showers over at least part of the state anytime from midday Wednesday through Thursday. Coverage those days does look a little more spotty. This is a very powerful system as it comes through the plains. We look for a significant dry slot to work in to this system and that may cut off the moisture for at time. But, there are signs that a second wave of strong storms comes up the old front in Oh late Thursday night into Friday. It that materializes, that will be where the best rains emerge. We are going to leave our forecast more conservative for now, looking for combined rains Wednesday-Thursday at .25”-.8” with coverage at 80%. If the storms develop Thursday night, that could ad another half to 1.5” in southern and southeastern OH…but stay tuned on that.  We should be dry for next Friday afternoon, if not before.We are leaving the extended period completely alone this morning, and it continues to look chilly, with well below normal temperatures. On Sunday, we can see some light snow and flurry action over the southern half of the state with minor accumulation potential and coverage at 60%, but the northern half of the state stays partly sunny. We do not see any well-organized frontal systems coming toward the region for the remainder of the period, but with strong NW winds, we think that we end up with plenty of lake enhanced clouds over the area, and we can’t rule out flurries from Monday 23rd through Friday the 27th.last_img read more

Haider abandons Pak cricket team, seeks refuge in London

first_imgAlready facing troubles over several match-fixing charges, Pakistan cricket now faces a new crisis after the team’s wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider abandoned his team in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and fled to London seeking refuge to evade a “threat” from the bookies. In a dramatic turn of events, Haider was reported missing on Sunday, on the eve of the deciding fifth one-day international (ODI) against South Africa. He did not arrive with the team at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Hours later, the player was filmed exiting Heathrow airport in London. The only indication of what led Haider to abandon his team was a cryptic status update on social networking site Facebook: “leaving pakistan cricket because get bad msg fr 1 man fr lose the match in last game”. Haider was the hero for Pakistan in the previous match as he hit 19 crucial runs to take his side home and level the series 2-2. But his match-winning performance became a cause of concern for the young cricketer. He was fined after the match for flouting team curfew rules and was “threatened” for his on-field heroics. Initially the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) feigned ignorance about the entire matter, but later ordered an inquiry into the cricketer’s disappearance. Haider’s brother alleged that the PCB ignored the threats to him but remained ignorant. Now, until Haider himself comes forward, no one would know the real reason for his dramatic exit from the team. Haider’s act of vanishing comes on the heels of a corruption scandal that hit the Pakistan team in August 2009 when three of its players were accused of match-fixing following a newspaper investigation. Then captain Salman Butt, Mohammed Asif and Mohammed Amir have been under suspension since then for allegedly accepting money via a middleman to bowl no-balls during the fourth Test against England at Lord’s.advertisementlast_img read more
