first_imgThe Trojans lost a nail-biter under the lights at Notre Dame Stadium 14-10 on Saturday night, as a USC team decimated by injuries at just about every offensive skill position failed to score in the second half.The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Trojans in South Bend, where they hadn’t lost since 2001. USC hadn’t lost any nonconference road game since 2002, and hadn’t lost twice in a row to Notre Dame since 2000-2001.USC had ample opportunities to overcome the deficit in the final period as the defense also held Notre Dame scoreless in the second half, but a litany of injuries, self-destructive play from the offensive line and a couple missed field goals doomed the Trojans.“Well, we have a hurt team in there,” interim head coach Ed Orgeron said. “Unfortunately we didn’t win the game, but I really liked the way our guys played and competed to the end.”Freshman safety Su’a Cravens gave USC the ball at the Irish 34-yard line by recovering a fumble – Notre Dame’s only turnover of the night – with 6:27 left. A perfectly targeted 16-yard pass to freshman wideout Darreus Rogers from redshirt sophomore quarterback Cody Kessler picked up a first down at the Irish 21-yard line, and the Trojans looked primed to come away with at least a field goal.But on a play where Kessler scrambled to inside the 5-yard line, a holding penalty on junior right guard Aundrey Walker brought the ball back to the 33-yard line.“It wasn’t a hold,” Walker said. “But the ref called it and we gotta live with it and move on … It happened so fast, I was holding my hands up because I thought it was gonna be a touchdown. And I turned around and there was a flag on the field.”A false start by redshirt freshman left tackle Chad Wheeler dug the Trojans into a 4th and 20 situation on Notre Dame’s 26-yard line, meaning a field goal attempt would have been 43 yards. With time running down and junior kicker Andre Heidari already having missed two field goals from 40 and 46 yards out, the Trojans tried to go for the touchdown and the win. But Kessler was sacked to turn the ball over on downs.“Going into the end, we just felt that we weren’t kicking field goals very well so [we thought] ‘Let’s go and win the game,’” Orgeron said.USC had another chance to score after a defensive stop, but injuries to Rogers, junior wideout Marqise Lee, freshman tailback Justin Davis and redshirt junior tight end Randall Telfer forced the Trojans to stretch deep into their depth chart on the final drive – and the backups’ inexperience showed. Tight end Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick and walk-on wide receiver Robby Kolanz lined up for USC, and a false start by Cope-Fitzpatrick and two incompletions thrown to the third-string tight end killed the Trojans’ last-gasp attempt to score.“Obviously the penalties hurt us tonight in crucial situations, and we didn’t punch it in in the red zone when we need to,” Orgeron said. “It seemed that every time we had a first down or something like that, we had a holding call or jumped offsides, shot ourselves in the foot, and then it was 2nd and 20.”Overall, the Trojans’ offensive stats looked passable; Kessler completed 20 of 34 passes for 201 yards and senior running back Silas Redd rushed 19 times for 112 yards and a touchdown.But after USC’s first drive of the game resulted in a touchdown, the Trojans never found the end zone again, and ended the game with a streak of 11 consecutive failed third-down attempts.“We felt like we had that game won until there were 4 zeros on the clock, ‘til it was completely over,” redshirt junior safety Dion Bailey said. “[Notre Dame] just made a couple more plays at the end that affected the outcome.”The Trojans had been expected to mostly split carries between the healthy quartet of backs who had registered carries against Arizona last week after redshirt sophomore Tre Madden suffered a hamstring injury. Madden wasn’t active for USC on Saturday, but Redd was tabbed for his first start of the season and seemed determined to assert himself as the starter.The senior carried six times for 40 yards on USC’s opening drive and punched the ball in for a one-yard touchdown to give the Trojans a 7-0 lead.The Irish attacked through the air on the next drive, as quarterback Tommy Rees completed six of seven attempts for 49 yards to lead Notre Dame to paydirt. The drive concluded with a seven-yard pass to Troy Niklas that tied up the game and put Rees over the 6,000 passing yards-mark for his career, becoming only the fifth Notre Dame quarterback to surpass that mark. Rees finished 14 of 21 for 166 yards and two touchdowns.Notre Dame’s offense took a huge hit – literally and figuratively – when junior linebacker Lamar Dawson burst untouched on a blitz early in the third quarter and unloaded on Rees, knocking him out of the game with a neck strain.The Irish’s offense was noticeably more conservative from that point forward, as backup quarterback Andrew Hendrix short-armed several throws while failing to complete any of his four attempts. In fact, the Irish didn’t complete any passes in the second half, a stunning feat for a team to pull off while also claiming victory.“I wasn’t willing to throw the football, and when we did, I didn’t like the way it looked,” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said. “Obviously we missed [Rees] in the second half … We tried to have [Hendrix] pull [the ball] and get to the sidelines, but it was tough sledding out there.”A 48-yard punt return from sophomore wideout Nelson Agholor, the longest by a Trojan since 2010, gave USC the ball at the Notre Dame 20-yard line with just under 10 minutes left in the second quarter. The Trojans failed to reach the end zone, but Heidari was true on his second field-goal attempt from 22 yards out to give the Trojans a 10-7 lead.After the teams traded scoreless possessions, the Irish finally gained some traction in the run game on their last drive of the half, and it resulted in their first lead in the rivalry at their home field since 2005.Notre Dame tailback Cam McDaniel broke off a 24-yard run to the Irish 41-yard line before a blatant pass interference penalty by redshirt sophomore cornerback Anthony Brown moved the ball past midfield to the USC 47.McDaniel followed with the longest rush of his career, a 36-yard scamper down to the USC 11-yard line, and receiver TJ Jones hauled in an impressive touchdown catch over sophomore cornerback Kevon Seymour to give the Irish a 14-10 lead that held until the final whistle.

first_imgWednesday, June 24 at 12:04 p.m.: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Anna Cockrell is a former track and field athlete. She is returning to the team in the spring as a graduate student. The article has been updated online to reflect the accurate information. The Daily Trojan regrets the error. Last Wednesday, graduate track and field hurdler and sprinter Anna Cockrell took to Twitter to announce the formation of the first Black student-athlete association in USC’s history.“Black athletes will not be silent, and @USC_Athletics needs to change,” Cockrell wrote.Hours after she announced the organization, athletic director Mike Bohn released a statement outlining the formation of the USC Athletics Black Lives Matter Action Team, a historic step by the USC Athletic Department spurred by the Black athletes who penned the letter.“The charge of this group will be to lead our program through a process of continued listening, learning, and educating with the ultimate goal of developing a series of meaningful and substantive actions and reforms for implementation,” Bohn’s statement read.Black athletes first brought the conversation to the Athletic Department May 31. Five days after Black Lives Matter protests erupted across the country over the killing of George Floyd, Cockrell hosted a Zoom town hall to allow athletes to air out grievances and stand against racial injustice both within the University and in their respective communities.“I think the key takeaway is that no matter how insulated we think USC might be from these issues, that the reality is racism permeates, honestly, every facet of American life and the Black American experience,” Cockrell said.Student-athletes shared what they had done at local protests and expressed different methods of activism they could bring to USC. The ultimate consensus was the need for an independent, student-led organization that collectively addressed the University on behalf of Black student-athletes.Over a period of 17 days, members held multiple private calls to discuss what issues within USC Athletics needed to be addressed. Early department statements regarding the protests did not explicitly use the phrase or hashtag “Black Lives Matter,” which was important for members of the developing organization.“There was some contentiousness over specific posts that didn’t address anything specifically or anything of concern, like George Floyd’s murder, all the other murders and deaths and police brutality,” women’s volleyball junior opposite hitter Candice Denny said. “It was more so about ‘we fight on together.’ While I understand the sentiment, at the same time, this is something much further than that. And if you want to actually support us, it’s going to take a lot more than that.”Cockrell and other leading members are keeping the exact number and names of participants confidential to honor the safe space the organization provides for Black student-athletes. However, the core members span multiple sports and classes and include Black University employees such as associate professor of clinical education Alan Green and track and field director Caryl Smith Gilbert.The final product of the two-week deliberation period was a four-page letter to the USC athletic administration and Bohn. The organization’s name was officially announced as the United Black Student-Athletes Association.UBSAA listed 12 issues and initiatives that demanded a broad array of action from the Athletic Department, University and fans and alumni.“The goal is that all are going to be addressed, and I think that’s why they weren’t numbered,” Cockrell said. “They’re of equal importance, honestly.”Of the 12 initiatives, the “promise of no retaliation for public statements” relating to the protests or racial injustice had one of the most in-depth explanations by the organization.The NCAA has a long, contentious history with student-athlete contracts, and one of the main controversies has been its control over athletes’ images and social media rights. All USC athletes must sign a social media use contract when they arrive on campus, and its blanket legal language can make the legitimacy of political involvement murky.The weight of professional athletes’ prior activism and ensuing backlash has also discouraged student-athletes from speaking out. Multiple USC athletes cited Colin Kaepernick’s ousting from the NFL because of his police brutality protest as a precedent for the sports community’s reaction to activism and as a cause for intimidation.“He stood out in racial injustice four years ago and he was blackballed out of the NFL,” football junior tailback Ben Easington said. “So from an NCAA football player standpoint that does all the right things — He gets good grades, he’s a 3.0-above guy, he goes to all the classes, he’s in the playing field, he’s graded high on [Pro Football Focus] — and say he takes a knee … All of the work he has done up to [that point] is not gonna help him.”UBSAA also outlined the need for the Athletic Department staff to reflect the athletes they work with by considering Black candidates for open jobs. The Sports Psychology department does not have any Black psychologists on staff, and Athletic Medicine has only one Black staff member, according to UBSAA’s statement.Discrepancy in an Athletic Department’s diversity compared to the student-athlete makeup of universities is a nationwide phenomenon. According to the NCAA Race and Gender Demographics database, approximately 20% of Division I athletes in the 2019-20 school year were Black, while just 10% of coaches and Athletic Department administrators were Black.UBSAA’s demands do not solely apply to the improvement of the Black student-athlete experience. The organization also calls for scholarships for Black students who do not participate in athletics or have exhausted their NCAA eligibility. For a college system that sees a glaring gap in the number of Black student-athletes that compete compared to the number who walk across the stage at graduation, this can allow the financial means for many to finish their degree and proceed to higher education, Denny said.“Our value extends far past our athletic eligibility,” Denny said. “That’s one of my favorite points because once our eligibility is exhausted, we’re out looking for graduate endowments and scholarships to help USC Black athletes and students further education, go to grad school, pursue Ph.D.s and the highest levels of education, and I think we can all benefit from that.”Beyond the letter to the Athletic Department, UBSAA has also created an Instagram account and is planning to become a recognized student organization this semester. According to football junior offensive lineman Jalen McKenzie, the organization hopes to reach beyond the campus and effect change in the South Central community as well.“The community that USC is in is a large community of people of color, Black people,” McKenzie said. “USC being a predominantly white institution — it’s like its own little world, little bubble. So I think that speaks to a lot of athletes’ experiences, and that’s kind of the space that our organization is trying to create.”The public nature of UBSAA’s mission and demands on social media is intended to act as accountability for the Athletic Department’s future action — or inaction. The Athletic Department has not provided any updates beyond Bohn’s announcement of the USC Athletics Black Lives Matter Action Team. However, coaches and administrators have kept in touch with the core members of UBSAA frequently as discussions of returning to campus grow more pressing.“Once a brand has posted something like that, I want them to know that I will hold them accountable,” Denny said. “I have the screenshots, I have the receipts.”When discussing the new organization, UBSAA organizers shared a common sentiment: that this is just the beginning.“Any fear or anxiety that I have is mitigated by the fact that it’s not about me, because it’s not,” Cockrell said. “It’s really about the organization and making things better for all Black student-athletes who come through USC. I’m personally not afraid.” USC graduate sprinter and hurdler Anna Cockrell has been at the forefront of efforts to establish UBSAA. (Daily Trojan file photo)last_img read more

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wrapped a crudely named, made-for-PPV baddest man in MMA title belt around Masvidal’s waist as nearly 20,000 fans howled in protest of the quick finish. SUBSCRIBE TO US President Donald Trump was on his feet as Jorge Masvidal defeated a bloodied Nate Diaz via a TKO before the fourth round of the UFC 244 main event at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wrapped a crudely named, made-for-PPV baddest man in MMA title belt around Masvidal’s waist as nearly 20,000 fans howled in protest of the quick finish. Masvidal dominated the first three rounds and opened cuts above Diaz’s eyes that turned his face into a crimson mask. The assigned doctor stopped the fight just before the fourth round. Both fighters felt the bout should continue.Johnson walked out holding the manufactured Baddest Mother (Censored!) championship belt to a thunderous ovation as his WWE theme music hit. Trump, who became the first president to attend a UFC card, clapped for Johnson and stayed on his feet for the furious early rounds. Masvidal charged at Diaz once the initial bell rang before he pulled up and smiled, a nod to his UFC-record five-second KO of Ben Askren in his last fight. Trump and his adult sons stood as Masvidal took quick control and pounded on Diaz. Diaz had a gash open over his right eye, his face bloodied as he lay on his back trying to kick away Diaz.The partisan crowd took turns chanting “Diaz!” and “Jorge!” and The Rock sat stone-faced, nodding at the biggest haymakers. Diaz staked his claim as the BMF — if the B stood for bloodiest — when he flexed for the crowd to end the second as blood poured down his face. The doc wouldn’t let the fight go into a fourth and 170-pound bout was over. The packed house at the Garden stood and had their phones out, craning their necks to catch a glimpse of the president as he took his cageside seat. Trump smiled and waved to fans as AC/DC’s “Back in Black” was blasted over the speakers shortly before the start of the 10 p.m. event. Trump received a mixed reaction, though nothing quite as derisive as the boos and “Lock him up!” chants he received last week at the World Series.Trump hugged boxing legend, Roberto Duran, as they posed for a picture and sat in the same row as UFC President Dana White. Trump is tight with White, a relationship that dates to UFC’s formative years before its rise into a billion-dollar promotion. New Jersey was one of the first states that embraced UFC, and White credits cards at the Trump Taj Mahal for helping the company grow into a heavyweight in the sports world. White spoke at Trump’s request at the Republican National Convention and they are occasional dining partners. Trump wore a suit and red tie and sat with sons Donald Jr. and Eric, several congressional Republicans and sports personalities just out of range of potential blood splatter. Trump Jr. tweeted White told the family, “it was the most electrifying entrance he seen in 25 years of doing this.” The Trump brothers sat cageside in August in New Jersey in support of Trump fan Colby Covington.Taking a break from an impeachment inquiry, Trump could only hope the first fight of the pay-per-view wasn’t a sign of things to come — a devastating KO from the left. He rose from his seat like the rest of the fans when Kevin Lee knocked out Gregor Gillespie with a left leg kick to the head. Gillespie bounced off the cage and lay motionless, out cold on the mat for a minute or so. Trump didn’t react as he watched the replay and applauded just like a regular fight fan when Gillespie finally came around and got to his corner. He did not appear to sing along to Darren Till’s “Sweet Caroline” walkout music.Derrick Lewis won his heavyweight bout and gave Trump a shoutout from inside the cage, saying “I know everything ain’t going so good in the White House. You gotta turn that … around in 2020.” Protesters outside MSG chanted “Danger, danger, there’s a Fascist in the White House,” over a bullhorn and held signs that read “Trump/Pence Out Now!” Once the fights started, there were no noticeable signs or sustained calls of support or protest for Trump. The only jabs were delivered inside the fenced-in, 4-foot octagon came from the fighters. Lewis was the only winner who mentioned Trump, and the crowd of nearly 20,000 seemed largely uninterested in him. The Rock and the president overshadowed a wildly entertaining card that had the Garden rocking in nearly every bout.The former WWE champ is the biggest box office star in Hollywood, with his “Jumanji” follow up out later this year. Johnson also announced his Seven Bucks Productions company is working on a biopic on retired MMA star Mark Kerr. Kerr won consecutive UFC heavyweight tournaments in the company’s infancy and later battled serious addiction issues. Johnson is set to star as the fighter known as the “Smashing Machine.” Written By COMMENTcenter_img LIVE TV WATCH US LIVE Associated Press Television News FOLLOW USlast_img read more
