    who inspired people around the world to dump buckets of ice water over their
    heads to raise millions of dollars for Lou Gehrigs disease research.Pete Frates
    was 27 years old in 2012 when he was diagnosed with the disease, also known as
    amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.The NCAA said Thursday that Frates will
    receive its 2017 Inspiration Award in January.NCAA officials plan to hand
    deliever the award, as Frates is unable to attend the awards celebration in
    Nashville, Tennessee, because the neurodegenerative disease is
    progressing.Frates is from Beverly, Massachusetts. Since his diagnosis he has
    dedicated himself to finding a cure for the disease, which weakens muscles and
    impairs physical functioning.The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge raised more than $220
    million in 2014. It took off as people posted videos of themselves doused with
    cold water and challenged their friends.

    . And when it opened, every player was at his
    stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers.
    "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman
    Josh Gorges.

    Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. SYRACUSE, N.Y.
    -- Dino Babers has watched his winning percentage as a head coach drop nearly 6
    percent during his first year at Syracuse. Hes still adamant the program is
    headed in the right direction, even after a lopsided loss on Senior Day.I think
    theyve written the introduction, this senior class, Babers said Monday, two days
    after a 45-14 home loss to Florida State, which is up two notches this week to
    No. 15 in the AP Top 25 . I think this program is trending up.Syracuse (4-7, 2-5
    ACC) was trending big-time five weeks ago after Babers gave a stirring postgame
    speech after the Orange upset then-No. 17 Virginia Tech in the Carrier Dome.
    That win was followed by another, at Boston College, before reality
    returned.Syracuse has now lost three straight , outscored by 100 points, also
    beaten by No. 4 Clemson (54-0) and N.C. State (35-20) during the late-season
    swoon.Before Saturdays game, the school handed out bobbleheads honoring former
    Orange All-America Floyd Little, one in a long line of stellar tailbacks the
    university is renowned for -- from Jim Brown to Heisman Trophy winner Ernie
    Davis to Little to Larry Csonka, and so on. Then, with its offensive line
    banged-up and starting quarterback Eric Dungey out for the second straight game,
    Syracuse was outgained 654-233 and its run game was stopped again in its tracks,
    managing 37 yards on 35 carries.Syracuse enters the final week of its regular
    season ranked 122nd in rushing (ahead of only six other teams), averaging 109.7
    yards per game and 2.99 yards per carry, a telltale statistic for the teams
    scoring woes.Even with Dungey putting up big yardage numbers earlier in the
    season, the Oranges up-tempo attack has had a difficult time scoring -- Syracuse
    ranks 112th, averaging 22.5 points. Before he was hurt in early Noveember
    against Clemson, the Orange averaged just over eight points in the second half
    of seven games against FBS teams, failing to score in six of 14 quarters after
    halftime.ddddddddddddhe key to any football game is being able to run the
    football and being able to stop the run on the other side, Babers said. When you
    can do those things, you can always be consistent. You can write it down, its
    never going to change.Before the opening kick on Saturday, Florida State passed
    the eye test, especially on defense. The Seminoles had seven players on the line
    280 or bigger, and 5-10 freshman Levonta Taylor was the only player in the
    secondary under 6 feet.Recruiting that sort of lineup is foremost on the mind of
    Babers, now 41-23 as a head coach.Its been my most challenging year, mainly
    because of the process and making sure everyone understands how difficult this
    was, Babers said. A lot of guys are not playing the positions they were
    recruited for. As this process moves forward and we start to bring more
    personnel in, I think its only going to get better, faster. It takes time.Were
    going to be back to where we need to be. Were trying to build this to last so
    that it never breaks down again.Dungey, sidelined by a vicious first-quarter hit
    to the shoulder and head at Clemson, and backup Zack Mahoney are the only ones
    listed this week on the depth chart for Pitt. Babers said Mahoney likely will be
    the starter and reiterated that he did not know if Dungey had received results
    of further tests regarding his injury.---More AP college football: and Kekis on
