Gophers Running Backs Mo Ibrahim And Trey Potts Cleared To Play

INDIANAPOLIS — The Gophers football team will enter the 2022 season with its top two running backs cleared to play.

After serious injuries ended their 2021 seasons by early October, Mo Ibrahim and Trey Potts will be ready to play when Minnesota open preseason camp on Aug. 1. The U opens the season Sept. 1 against Jerry Kill-coached New Mexico State at Huntington Bank Stadium on Sept. 1.

Ibrahim ruptured his Achilles tendon in the season opener against Ohio State, while Potts suffered an undisclosed injury that caused a six-night hospital stay in Indiana after the Big Ten opener at Purdue on Oct. 2. Both Potts and Ibrahim were very limited during spring practices in March and April.

At Big Ten Media Days on Tuesday, head coach P.J. Fleck said Ibrahim was “full strength” and “ready to roll.”

Fleck told KFXN-FM on Tuesday the U will be “incredibly smart” with Ibrahim during preseason camp. Ibrahim will go through an “acclimation period,” which will include reps in live scrimmages to reacquaint himself with the physical rushing style that has brought him so much success.

In December, Potts said he would return to the team in 2022, but Fleck added he was assessed by multiple medical staffs in his home state of Pennsylvania and at the University of Minnesota. He needed to go through a battery of tests, and he passed them.

The return of Ibrahim and Potts is instrumental for a team that lost the two running backs who stepped up after Ibrahim and Potts were ruled out last season. Mar’Keise “Bucky” Irving transferred to Oregon, and Ky Thomas transferred to Kansas.

Potts rushed for 112 times for 552 yards and six touchdowns before he suffered a freak situation late in the fourth quarter of the 20-13 victory over Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind.

Ibrahim, the 2020 Big Ten running back of the year, rushed 30 times for 163 yards and two touchdowns through three quarters of the 45-31 loss to Ohio State on Sept. 2 before his injury sidelined him for the rest of the game and the season.

Ibrahim was at media days in Indianapolis in 2021 but decided to stay back in Minnesota this year. He also has declined other interviews.

“He’s going to shock the world again,” Gophers receiver Chris Autman-Bell said of Ibrahim on July 13. “I think a lot of people forget about who Mo Ibrahim is and what he’s done. He’s gonna shut up the world for sure. He’s got a lot, a lot of actions he’s going to put behind that. Mo already told me what he’s going to do. I will let you see it for yourself.”

‘We need to show the fire that we have — if we have any’: Chicago White Sox make costly mistakes in a loss to the Kansas City Royals

‘We Need To Show The Fire That We Have — If We Have Any’: Chicago White Sox Make Costly Mistakes In A Loss To The Kansas City Royals

Chicago White Sox starter Johnny Cueto has pitched for winning teams throughout his career, including the 2015 World Series champion Kansas City Royals.

After another night of missed opportunities in an 8-3 loss Wednesday against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium, the Sox were left to ponder what it would take to show the consistency so many had expected all year.

“I think we need to be more aggressive and we need to show more swagger,” Cueto said through an interpreter. “We need to go out there and play and play hard and show what we can do.

“We need to fight. We need to show the fight, we need to show the fire that we have — if we have any.”

The Sox broke through offensively with three runs in the top of the sixth to take a two-run lead. The Royals tied the game in the bottom of the sixth and went ahead in the seventh on MJ Melendez’s solo home run off Jake Diekman. They pulled away with four in the eighth.

“I look at it like we had a two-run lead and it’s part of the game,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Sometimes we’ve had rallies that started with a ball hitting a bag or a blooper. It happened for them.”

The Sox trailed 1-0 when they loaded the bases with one out in the sixth.

Gavin Sheets, who flied out to left in a similar situation in the second, smacked a grounder to second with an exit velocity of 106.1 mph. Michael Massey couldn’t cleanly field the hard-hit ball, and two runs scored on the play, which was originally ruled a hit before being changed to an error.

The Sox tacked on a third run on a two-out RBI single by Josh Harrison.

The Royals responded with two in the bottom of the sixth.

Bobby Witt Jr. reached on an infield single, beating the throw from third after a slight double clutch by Yoán Moncada. Witt scored from first on Salvador Perez’s double.

Perez advanced to third on a throwing error by Moncada, who made a nice fielding play on Hunter Dozier’s grounder but threw wide of first baseman José Abreu. Perez scored on a two-out single by Massey.

“I battled,” Cueto said. “Just two ground balls that unfortunately Moncada couldn’t finish those plays. But I kept battling. I did what I could.”

Cueto allowed three runs (two earned) on nine hits with four strikeouts and one walk in six innings.

“Part of baseball,” La Russa said. “And he almost pitched out of it. It’s a tough way to get guys on base. A tough way to give up runs from Johnny’s perspective.”

Diekman has been effective since the Sox acquired him in a trade from the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 1, retiring 10 of 12 batters faced with six strikeouts in his first four outings.

He gave up the homer to Melendez on a 1-2 pitch.

The Royals added the insurance runs in the eighth against Jimmy Lambert, who had not allowed a run over his last 12 outings.

“Diekman made one mistake and (Melendez) hit it out of the park,” La Russa said. “And then it got away from us in the eighth inning. This was not the way Lambert’s been pitching. He’s still very good. Soon as he rests, he’ll be back out there again.”

The Sox didn’t produce anything offensively outside of the sixth. While Royals starter Kris Bubic didn’t factor in the decision, he lowered his career ERA against the Sox to 2.72 in seven outings (six starts) after allowing one earned run on seven hits in 5⅔ innings.

“You look at lifetime, this guy has been tough on us,” La Russa said. “We got the three, I was proud of that. Even the first time that Sheets hit the ball to left field, couldn’t score. And he hit the bullet (in the sixth). (They) pitched good against us but we had a chance to win that game. Just got away from us.”

The Sox fell back to a game above .500 at 56-55. They’re in third in the American League Central, 2½ games out of first place.

“Not yet,” La Russa said about sustaining success, “doesn’t mean you can’t and won’t.”

He believes it’s still coming for the Sox.

“Because I know what’s in here,” he said. “If we didn’t have that, we would have been buried a long time ago. The fact that we’re still clawing and fighting tells you that we can make something good happen that’s consistent.”

Exchange platform Zerodha’s Kite mobile app was not working on several devices while prices were not updating on many others, users complained on Twitter on Thursday morning.

#zerodhadown trended on Twitter within minutes as users took to the microblogging site to post screenshots of the issues they were facing.

However, Zerodha shared an update on their website at 9:21 a.m. to say that the issue with Kite has been resolved.
“Some of our users may not be able to view live streams on the Kite mobile app. We are reviewing this and will fix it shortly. Please use Kite Web in the meantime. Order placement is not affected “said the brokerage.

While a few Twitter users said that if the Zerodha issue hadn’t happened, they wouldn’t have incurred any losses while others appreciated the platform for resolving the issue within minutes.

However, several users said they turn to other platforms like Angel One or Finvasia to trade.

Also earlier in November 2021, users encountered difficulties in trading due to a technical issue on Zerodha’s trading platform. The brokerage faced anger from customers as they complained about prices and trading freezes on its platform during trading hours.

Trump became deeply suspicious of being watched and that his loved ones could bear sons: report

Trump Became Deeply Suspicious Of Being Watched And That His Loved Ones Could Bear Sons: Report

  • According to a new Rolling Stone report, Trump has become paranoid about being bugged.

  • Sources close to Trump told Rolling Stone he asked if the phones were being tapped “by Biden.”

  • Trump was also wary of Republicans visiting him at his clubs and if they were carrying sons.

Even before the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago on Monday, former President Donald Trump was becoming paranoid about the possibility that he was being watched by authorities or that his loved ones were carrying sons, according to a new Rolling Stone Report.

Rolling Stone spoke to four sources familiar with Trump’s behavior. The sources say the former president asked his close associates if they thought he might be under surveillance by the authorities.

“He asked me and others, ‘Do you think our phones are tapped?’” a source told Rolling Stone. “Given the sheer volume of ongoing investigations into the (former) president, I don’t think he’s presuming anything outside the realm of possibility.”

According to the source, Trump brought up the idea of ​​being bugged as a serious consideration, but also joked that those close to him should “be careful” about what they say on the phone.

Two sources close to Trump also told Rolling Stone that the former president had also grown suspicious of Republican figures visiting him at his clubs, wondering if they might “wear a thread”. These sources also told Rolling Stone that Trump and his advisers are looking for a “mole” or “rat” who could be working with law enforcement against Trump.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, another Trump adviser said members of the MAGA flank tried to reach out to Trump and warned him against trusting certain people close to him: those they do not like.”

For his part, Trump spoke out against the search, pointing out how officers “broke” into his safe.

The FBI did not give a reason for the raid. But multiple outlets, as well as Eric Trump in a Fox News interview, suggested it was material the former president brought to Mar-a-Lago after leaving the White House.

In February, the National Archives recovered 15 boxes of documents from Mar-a-Lago. He also asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Trump broke the law by bringing official documents to his residence in Florida. The Wall Street Journal and Newsweek also reported this week that an informant close to Trump may have tipped off investigators and indicated where they might find documents the Archives did not obtain in February.

Median rent hit a record high of $1,876 in June, up 14% from a year ago, but that still represented a monthly savings of $561 from the monthly cost of buying a home. a first home, which jumped to $2,437, according to the report.

Real estate consultant Jonathan Miller, who prepared the Elliman report, said last month that once the vaccine came out and disrupted the narrative that the city was “unsafe,” not only did some residents choose to return, but other New Yorkers who had been driven out by previous rent hikes seeking to take advantage of the new discounts.

Miller added that as mortgages remain tight, there are fewer people able to qualify for homes in the suburbs around the city, forcing people to join the crowded pool of apartment hunters in the city.

“More and more people have been pushed into the rental market, which has driven up competition and rental prices,” Miller explained.

As rental prices hit record highs in May, New Yorkers also began sharing videos of long lines stretching around street corners of people looking to see some of the city’s most affordable apartments. .

Competition for apartments is only exacerbated by a dwindling supply, as the listing of apartments in Manhattan remains low.

In July, the listing inventory of 6,669 was well below last year’s level of 11,794, according to the Elliman report.

The vacancy rate of 2.08% was also well below last year’s rate of 6.07%.

Discounts have become almost non-existent, with the average discount off the listing price being 0.2%, down from 1% last year.

Domino'S Would End The Sale Of Pizzas In Italy

The birthplace of pizza has defeated America’s largest pie chain.

Domino’s closed the last of its 29 branches in Italy, seven years after it began operations in the country, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.

The business newspaper said new delivery operations born during the pandemic created unexpected competition that scuttled plans to open 880 stores over time.

A representative for Domino’s did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In January, its Italian franchise partner cited increased competition as having hurt expansion plans.

“We attribute the problem to the significantly increased level of competition in the food delivery market with both curated chains and ‘mom and pop’ restaurants delivering food, to services and restaurants reopening post-pandemic and to consumers walking around with revenge spending,” said the group, ePizza SpA.

In an email, Federico Tozzi, executive director of the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce, said that while other American fast-food chains, like McDonald’s and Starbucks, continue to thrive in Italy, Domino’s could not challenge with success the country’s existing pizza sources. .

“I believe that in Italy there are so many good pizzerias (some of them organized as franchises) that the Italian consumer has so much choice and therefore does not see Domino’s as a valid alternative”, he said. declared.

Domino’s reported otherwise healthy sales outside of Italy during the coronavirus pandemic, but said in its latest business results report that it was struggling to find qualified drivers and was struggling. struggled to manage rising food prices in an inflationary environment.

“The delivery industry continued to be under more pressure,” Chief Financial Officer Sandeep Reddy said, especially with competition from third-party delivery apps.
