victory that left Cougar f

  • 27 Jun
    HOUSTON -- The Houston Cougars quite enjoyed playing spoiler on Thursday night with their playoff hopes long since gone.Duke Catalon scored three touchdowns and Houston hurried and harassed Heisman favorite Lamar Jackson all night to propel the Cougars to a stunning 36-10 victory over No. 3 Louisville that dashed the Cardinals playoff chances.I think our guys, they embrace the underdog role, Houston coach Tom Herman said. When were healthy, when were fresh and we have that chip on our shoulder against big time opponents ... we dont change the way we prepare for these kind of games, but I do think our guys have an added motivation.Louisville (9-2) entered the game ranked fifth in the College Football Playoff rankings, but was outdone by a Houston team that saw its own playoff hopes foiled by two losses to unranked teams after a 5-0 start .Showing the world once again that Houston is the greatest school, a great place to be, a great environment, Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver said. We work hard for everything that we ever had and will have. Were legit. Were go-getters. No matter the task, we always come through the other side.The victory was Houstons second this season over a team ranked third after the Cougars (9-2) knocked off Oklahoma to open the season and it was their fourth straight win over a top-10 team.Things went wrong quickly for the mistake-prone Cardinals when they fumbled awau the opening kickoff. Greg Ward threw his first touchdown pass on the next play to make it 7-0. Brandon Radcliff lost a fumble later in the first and Houston added a field goal on the ensuing drive to make it 10-0.Jackson threw for 211 yards and a touchdown, but it didnt come until the second half.That was a heck of a football team in Louisville and a heck of a player in Lamar Jackson, Herman said. Still in my opinion, nothings changed. Thats the best player in college football, and our defense did a good job of putting pressure on him.Houston then scored touchdowns on three straight possessions in the second quarter to push the lead to 31-0 at halftime. Catalon caught a touchdown pass, ran for another score and Houston got the third score in that span on a 50-yard pass by receiver Linell Bonner after a lateral.Louisville opened the second half with a 12-yard touchdown pass by Jackson, but he fumbled in the red zone on the next possession to ruin a chance to close the gap.The Cougars were in Jacksons face constantly, sacking him a season-high 11 times and keeping him from hurting them with his feet. He ran for a season-low 33 yards after piling up 338 yards rushing combined in the last two games. The 11 sacks were tied for the most allowed in the country this season.Honestly, we try to do this every week, linebacker Steven Taylor said. It just felt good for us to accomplish this and show the world that were capable of coming out and being aggressive and doing good at that.After Jackson was sacked for the 10th time he threw up his hands and two of his lineman looked to be yelling at each other about who was to blame for his latest takedown.It was so loud, you couldnt hear words, Oliver said. But you could see he was yelling at his o-lineman, but you couldnt hear what he was saying. Im guessing he was yelling at them for false starts.But the Cougars werent done getting after him just yet. On the next possession he threw the ball away while under heavy pressure from Tyus Bowser and was flagged for intentional grounding, giving the Cougars a safety.The Cardinals set a season-high with 15 penalties, punted a season-high six times by halftime and the 11 sacks they allowed were more than double their previous season-high. Its the fewest points theyve scored since a loss at North Carolina in 2011.Ward threw for 233 yards and two touchdowns to help the Cougars to the victory that left Cougar fans storming the field to celebrate.---For more college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Michael Deiter Jersey .C. -- Charlotte Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said after all of these years in the NBA hes still amazed at some of the things LeBron James does.

MIAMI -- A lawyer who assisted the NCAA in its investigation of University of Miami athletics is facing a 91-day suspension from practicing law, according to new court documents.The documents show thats what the Florida Bar recommended to the Florida Supreme Court in the case of attorney Maria Elena Perez. A Bar referee found she violated numerous legal ethics by sharing information with the NCAA she got from witnesses she interviewed while representing former Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro in a bankruptcy case.Shapiro is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for operating a $930 million Ponzi scheme. It was Shapiros improper actions with recruits, athletes and staffers that prompted the NCAA to strip Miami of nine football scholarships and put its athletics department on three years probation that ends Oct. 21.The NCAA has acknowledged it was wrong to align with Perez and pay her more than $18,000 to get information from the witnesses she was interviewing on Shapiros behalf. The bankruptcy case was aimed at finding money to return to wronged investors in Shapiros fraud scam, and Shapiro sought to cooperate in hopes of getting a lighter prison sentence in his criminal case.The Bar investigation of Perez found that ultimately $35 million was returned to investors through the bankruptcy case.The Florida Bar filing concluded that Perez, 44, is guilty of violating eight ethical rules including lack of candor, failure to disclose key facts and making false statements.dddddddddddd In addition to the suspension from practicing law, the Bar filing recommends that Perez pay more than $4,000 in costs of the investigation.Among other things, the Bars initial complaint said that Perez failed to inform witnesses in depositions about her relationship with the NCAA and that she even contacted producers at HBO about taping depositions of former Miami equipment-room staffer Sean Allen and sports agent Michael Huyghue.In a letter responding to the Bar complaint, Perez contended that her agreement was that the NCAA would be a third-party payor and that she never worked directly for the NCAA as one of its attorneys or legal representatives.The NCAA was going to pay the undersigned counsel for work related to representing Mr. Shapiro in matters overlapping the enforcement staffs investigation of Miami, Perez wrote in the letter.She declined to comment on the filing in an email Monday other than to note that some of the original allegations were dropped.The Supreme Court could accept or reject the Bars disciplinary recommendation, and could increase or reduce the proposed penalty.-----Follow Curt Anderson on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Miamicurt Cheap Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys Wholesale NHL Jerseys Wholesale MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Wholesale NCAA Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys Wholesale Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
