first_imgLincoln boss Cowley: I tried to sell Chapman to Evertonby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLincoln City boss Danny Cowley appreciated the response from Everton rival Marco Silva for yesterday’s FA Cup defeat.Everton managed to edge Lincoln 2-1.”I was trying to sell him Ellis Chapman, our 17-year-old who came on and played that lovely pass, and was seeing if he fancied giving us a couple of million for him,” Cowley said with a smile.”But seriously, he was really positive with everything. He said how well we had defended without the ball and how good our structure and organisation was and that we were as difficult to play against as any Premier League team he’d played against this season, which was really kind.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgAnton Gill goes up for layup vs. NC State.Twitter/‏@CBSSportsCBB Little-used guard Anton Gill emerged during this year’s NCAA Tournament, helping Louisville top N.C. State with seven points on 3-of-3 shooting and two steals in just 11 minutes of play. That game ended up being the defining one of his brief Louisville career, as the former Top-50 recruit announced that he intended to transfer from the program, where he averaged just 9.4 minutes per game in 2014-15, after the season. While there were initially thoughts that Gill would transfer closer to a school in North Carolina to be closer to home, Gill is actually heading farther west, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.Louisville transfer Anton Gill told ESPN he has committed to Nebraska.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) May 5, 2015Nebraska had a disappointing 13-18 season in 2014-15, after a breakout 2013-14 in which Tim Miles’ team went 19-13 and made the NCAA Tournament. Perhaps a talent like Gill can help replace the void left by star Terran Petteway, who has declared for the NBA Draft.last_img read more

first_imgDesmond Howard gives his take on ESPN.Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is nursing a sprained knee, and as a result, Crimson Tide fans are a bit worried as their team heads into a rivalry game against Tennessee. Desmond Howard’s comment on the situation on College GameDay isn’t helping matters.Howard, in an odd moment, suggested he would “not be surprised” if Tua’s knee gave out on him during the season. It’s not the kind of comment that fans want to hear.Howard is getting a lot of heat from Alabama fans, who believe the comment was borderline inappropriate.Tagovailoa was taken out of his team’s game last week against Missouri. Jalen Hurts replaced him.Can’t believe that Desmond Howard of @CollegeGameDay just said that he wouldn’t be surprised if Tua’s knee gave out on him this this year. Give me a break. He shouldn’t say stuff like that. #RollTide #BamaGameday— Bobby Kennedy (@BobbyKennedy5) October 20, 2018What an awkward comment by Desmond there on Tua. “I would not be surprised if his knee gave out soon.”What’s the point of saying that?— Wayne McGahee III (@WayneMcGaheeIII) October 20, 2018Alabama takes on Tennessee on Saturday, and while the Crimson Tide are favored, anything can happen in rivalry games. That said, Jalen Hurts, who started for two season, is a more-than-capable backup quarterback.Alabama, still undefeated, heads into the contest as the No. 1 team in the nation and the favorite to repeat as national champion.The two squads will tangle at 3:30 PM ET.last_img read more
