    导出博客文章CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- First-year Miami coach Mark Richt never talked to his
    team about qualifying for a bowl game with a victory at Virginia, figuring the
    Hurricanes had three games left to ensure a .500 record and a chance to play in
    the postseason.When Brad Kaaya threw two touchdown passes and Mark Walton ran
    for 111 yards and another score Saturday, leading Miami to a 34-14 victory
    against Virginia, and bowl eligibility, his players admitted to be delighted,
    and to wanting to keep the wins coming,Its awesome. Awesome, right guard Danny
    Isadora said. Got to keep winning.They did it for the first time at Virginia
    with a balanced attack that produced 222 rushing yards and 228 through the
    air.Kaaya hit David Njoku for a 7-yard score and Ahmmon Richards for a
    77-yarder, the latter making Kaaya just the second quarterback to throw for more
    than 9,000 yards in his career at Miami (6-4, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).
    Only Ken Dorsey, with 9,565, has more.Richards touchdown, on a short third-down
    route, gave the Hurricanes a 27-14 lead, and the defense did the rest.It feels
    great, honestly, the freshman said of qualifying for the postseason. You work so
    hard and you want to have a payoff. Its a great way for our seniors to go out,
    but right now, were focusing on N.C. State.The Cavaliers (2-8, 1-5) honored
    fourth- and fifth-year seniors before their final home game, but lost their
    fifth in a row. Virginia trailed just 17-14 at halftime, but mustered only 28
    yards in the third quarter as Miami pulled away.Virginia fumbled the ball away
    four times, all in the second half.Clearly Im not getting through yet to our
    team in those closer moments where the game is kind of going back and forth,
    first-year Cavaliers coach Bronco Mendenhall said.Waltons 15-yard run, capped as
    he arched his back to reach the end zone, essentially put the game away with
    11:17 remaining. It gave the sophomore 21 touchdowns in 23 career games, and 11
    touchdowns this season.I think the blocking was good, for the most part, but
    there were a few times where he was just ripping through tackles and just wasnt
    going to be denied a first down and kept a couple of drives going, Richt
    said.THE TAKEAWAYMiami: The Hurricanes reached bowl eligibility by getting stout
    performances on both sides of the ball. They rushed for 222 yards and passed for
    228, and on defense sacked Virginia starting quarterback Kurt Benkert five
    times, including a strip sack by Corn Elder that Joe Jackson recovered.Virginia:
    Benkert continued to be restless under pressure and had another rough day. He
    completed 16 of 27 passed for 143 yards before being removed in the fourth
    quarter. The swap allowed former starter Matt Johns to finish, and he received a
    rousing ovation when he entered his final career home game.WHERE THERES
    SMOKEVirginias Taquan Smoke Mizzell caught three passes for 27 yards, and became
    the first player in ACC history to record 1,500 career rushing yards and 1,500
    career receiving yards. He has 1,831 rushing yards (21st all-time at Virginia)
    and 1,517 receiving yards (13th).The milestone came on a pass from Johns in the
    fourth quarter.One of Johns goals when he got into the game, he said, was to get
    Smoke that record. Man, I love that dude. He plays so hard and he caught a
    couple passes and got the 10 yards that he needed. Hes one of the best football
    players Ill ever play with.UP NEXTMiami makes its first trip to Raleigh, North
    Carolina since 2008 to face North Carolina State.Virginia plays at Georgia

    bid for a majority shareholding in Aviva Premiership club Gloucester
    Rugby.Billionaire business mogul Altrad is understood to be aiming to add a
    controlling stake in Gloucester to his ownership of French Top 14 giants
    Montpellier.Gloucester Rugby are aware of the speculation from various media
    channels linking the club with a potential majority shareholder interest, read a
    club statement. The board of Gloucester Rugby have always stated that if the
    right investment to take the club forward is found that we would welcome
    discussions.?Martin St Quinton and the executive team are committed to the
    future of the club, and if there are significant strategic benefits that can be
    sought by introducing the right people to the club who share our drive and
    ambition then we will act in the best interest of the club.The Rugby Football
    Union (RFU), French Rugby Federation (FFR) aand World Rugby would have to
    sanction any deal for Altrad to take control at Gloucester while also holding on
    to his ownership at Montpellier.dddddddddddd?Champions Cup and Challenge Cup
    tournament organisers European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) would also need to
    ratify any deal, in order to ward off any potential conflict of
    interest.Gloucester owner St Quinton only completed his full takeover of the
    Kingsholm club in February, having been a major shareholder since 2008, by
    purchasing the other main shareholding from the Walkinshaw family.Former Arrows
    F1 team owner Tom Walkinshaw saved Gloucester from financial ruin in the early
    professional era, purchasing the club in 1997. Walkinshaw died in 2010 after a
    battle with cancer and his son Ryan took control of Gloucester. ' ' '
