Syracuse quarterback Hunt returns to team after suspension

first_img Published on July 30, 2012 at 4:21 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_iseman NEWPORT, R.I. — Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt has returned to the team and will be practicing with the Orange at training camp.Hunt, a sophomore, was arrested in January after stealing a bottle of cologne from a Hollister store in the Carousel Mall. Head coach Doug Marrone subsequently suspended him from spring practice. Marrone said Tuesday at Big East media day that the backup quarterback has dealt with the consequences, but he still has a lot to catching up to do after he missed so much time in the spring.“What he did was obviously wrong and there are consequences to it, and those are very difficult consequences for him to deal with,” Marrone said. “He has a lot of catching up to do it.”The 6-foot-3, 203-pound Hunt has an impressive high-school resume, throwing for 1,289 yards as a senior at Christ the King High School in Rosedale, N.Y. He also had 14 carries for over 3,000 all-purpose yards.Hunt did not play at all as a freshman.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Football: Third-down success on both sides of ball key for No. 9 Wisconsin moving forward

first_imgIt’s no secret that third down is the most important down in football. Usually, the team that converts the majority of its third downs come out on the winning side of the final score.In the first two games of 2016, the University of Wisconsin’s defense has had tremendous success on third downs. Both Louisiana State University and University of Akron, the Badgers’ first two opponents of the season, each had 10 third-down chances against the UW (2-0 overall) defense.LSU only converted two times, and Akron just once. Redshirt sophomore inside linebacker T.J. Edwards said Wisconsin’s week of preparation is the reason for success on third down.Football Notes: Chryst says offense still work in progress, T.J. Edwards hopes for more snapsThe University of Wisconsin football team’s offense is a work in progress. At least, that was the way UW head Read…“So far, we’ve been able to win those one-on-one battles we have to win on third down,” Edwards said Monday.UW’s third down success is key to giving the offense as many opportunities as possible. It was key in upsetting LSU, and against Akron it allowed the first-team defense to take only 20 snaps — all in the first half.“It’s definitely not a coincidence we’re good on third down,” fifth-year senior outside linebacker Vince Biegel said. “We rep it a lot in practice. We take great pride in third down. We got a lot of players who understand third downs. We got guys who can get after the passer [and] cover on third down.”Football: Wisconsin’s win over Akron highlights a matured freshmen wide receiving coreA.J. Taylor left Camp Randall Stadium after practice this week, he noticed his bicycle had been towed. He began to Read…On the offensive side of the ball, Wisconsin fans have seen both sides of the spectrum regarding third-down performance. Against LSU, quarterback Bart Houston and the Badgers were an abysmal 3-for-15. They flipped the script last Saturday, going 10-for-15 on third down against the Zips.Houston said that for the Wisconsin offense to keep improving, they’ll have to maintain that level of success on third down to sustain drives and control the clock.The Badgers have dominated time of possession during the first two wins of the season. They held the ball an extra 13:54 than the Tigers in the opener, and the Zips had the ball for just 19:08 during the Badgers’ blowout win at Camp Randall.“We got the weapons,” Houston said.last_img read more

Essential Tools For SEO on a Budget

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Tags:#biz#How To While the social, real-time Web is hogging all the buzz as of lately, it’s still important to keep an eye on good old fashioned search engine optimization for your company’s site. SEO can be an expensive endeavor, especially if you hire an expert, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve covered the basics on how to improve your business website’s search rankings, and here are a few tools to get you started without breaking the bank. Analyze your siteFirst, you’ll need to know what your existing site’s strengths and weaknesses are. What better way to analyze your site than through the eyes of the world’s biggest search engine? Google’s free and easy-to-install Webmaster Tools will crawl your site and give you the data you need to analyze which queries and keywords are bringing people to your site, where your inbound links are coming from, and internal links within your site. Any issues with your site will be found under the “Diagnostics” tab, which informs you of any broken links, malware, duplicate title tags, duplicate meta description tags and offer suggestions to improve your HTML mark-up.Now that site speed is a factor in your search rankings, Google offers a free browser plugin called Page Speed that gives feedback on your site’s page load time and identifies any glaring issues. Yahoo offers a competing tool called Y Slow that does the same thing.Research KeywordsFiguring out what keywords you want to capture is a critical component of SEO, and once again, Google has a tool to help with that. While its primarily geared to pay-per-click (PPC) search keywords, Google’s search-based keyword tool will scan your site and generate a list of recommended keywords for different landing pages on your site. At the end of the day, Google’s tool exists to encourage you to buy search advertisements from them, so it wouldn’t hurt to pay a few bucks and use one or two other tools alongside it. WordTracker ($59 a month) comes highly recommended in the SEO world. Other popular choices are Wordze, which costs $39 a month and SEOPivot for $140 a month. Get Inbound LinksWhile there are products available that claim to help with generating inbound links, the highest-quality links (and thus, the ones that will most benefit your rankings) tend to come naturally. Arguably the best way to generate inbound links is by creating quality, useful content (a company blog is essential) and effectively promoting it using social media like Twitter and Facebook. Some site owners prefer to email other site owners and request links. This can be effective, but should be done thoughtfully and within reason. At the end of the day, search engines are looking for content that is genuinely relevant to their users’ queries. Avoid using methods that try to trick them into ranking your site highly and instead use that energy to make a well-constructed website with highly relevant and useful content. Top that off with some good old honest SEO tactics, and you’ll be well on your way to high rankings.
