LSU’s Alleva changes stance on rushing the field

first_imgBATON ROUGE – Perhaps someone from the Southeastern Conference office called LSU athletic director Joe Alleva Tuesday and reminded him about all those night home games he asked for and received — all seven this season to be exact.Because Alleva on Tuesday afternoon altered his view of postgame rush parties on the Tiger Stadium field after significant victories. Thousands of LSU students and fans stormed the field moments after the No. 23 Tigers upset No. 3 Ole Miss, 10-7, on Saturday night at Tiger Stadium.When asked soon after the game Saturday night about the likely fine coming from the SEC office, Alleva quipped, “I hope I have to spend it again two weeks from now,” in a story on LSU’s own website that circulated to several other media outlets over the last few days. That quote has since been taken out of the story.Alleva was referencing the Alabama game two weeks from last Saturday on Nov. 8 in Tiger Stadium. LSU, now ranked No. 17 by USA Today with a 7-2 record and 3-2 mark in the SEC, hosts No. 3 Alabama (7-1, 4-1) at 7 p.m. on CBS.It should be noted that Alleva’s above comment – while it was reported accurately during an interview, according to the writer and LSU’s sports information department — it was made in the blush of victory moments after the game. By Tuesday, Alleva had changed his stance on postgame etiquette in a statement released by LSU on the same website as the original comment —http://www.lsusports.net/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=5200&ATCLID=209738200.“I encourage everyone to celebrate great LSU victories within the seating areas of the stadium, and not on the field,” Alleva says in the release. “LSU represents the achievement of victory with dignity, and we do not want to sacrifice safety or sportsmanship. We would never endorse the ‘storming of the field’ by our fans. It is a violation of the protocol established by the SEC, and serious injuries have occurred at the venues of our member institutions. It is our sincere responsibility to maintain a safe and secure environment for everyone, and we must adhere to the principles set forth by the SEC.“We have the opportunity to play a very meaningful game in Tiger Stadium on Nov. 8, and I look forward to joining over 100,000 devoted fans for what will be another unforgettable night!”Alleva also offered condolences in the LSU release to the family of Brian Tingley, who died after suffering a heart attack in Tiger Stadium during the game. Tingley, who was 59 and lived in the New Orleans area, was a season ticket holder for 35 years.“It is my understanding he was an extremely dedicated Tiger fan, and his presence in our stadium will certainly be missed,” Alleva said.last_img read more

Cricket: Shikhar Dhawan’s blitz guides India to a series whitewash

Powered by Firework (Photo Courtesy: BCCI)Advertisement Team India, inspired by a 92 from Shikhar Dhawan coasted to victory in the 3rd and final T20 vs the Windies at Chennai, despite the scare in the final over. Dhawan along with Pant added 130 runs for the 3rd wicket to guide India home.Advertisement Windies who came into the match after losing the first two encounters, elected to bat first in a bid to avoid further humiliation. Their openers, Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer got their team off to a solid start scoring 51 runs in the powerplay.Chahal, who came into the side in place of Kuldeep Yadav soon entered into the attack and removed both the openers. Darren Bravo then joined hands with Dinesh Ramdin to continue the innings. Ramdin, who had got of to a good start, soon fell after losing his stumps to the homeboy Washington Sundar.Advertisement At this stage, Windies were at 94-3 at the end of 13 overs. They needed some crucial contribution from the incoming batsmen if they were to post a good total on the board. Just as they wished, they got their much needed finisher.Nicholas Pooran entered the crease and wasted no time in getting a move on. He scored a brilliant knock of 53* in just 25 balls that comprised of 4 fours and 4 sixes. His innings was brilliantly complemented on the other end by Darren Bravo, who ended with a score of 43*. The pair added 87 runs between themselves to help Windies post a total of 181 in their quota of 20 overs.The experienced pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan knew that they had their task cut out. India lost Rohit early, as he was caught by Brathwaite in the 3rd over. KL Rahul then came in and continued to keep the required run rate in check, getting off to a quick start. But he too fell soon for 17, failing to convert his good start.At this stage things looked difficult for team India, as they needed another 137 runs in 88 balls. But the pair of Dhawan and Pant then joined hands to take the game away from the visitors.The initial overs between the pair saw them not time the ball well. The required run rate also shot up to 10. But post the midway mark, the pair found their way and took control of the game. Poor bowling from the Windies saw the game slip away from their grasp.Dhawan and Pant started to display their A-game, bringing up India’s hundred in just 11.5 overs. Dhawan, who soon reached his half century had his sights clearly set on the three figure mark. Meanwhile, Pant, showcased his class, playing his trademark shots behind the wicket and collecting some cheeky boundaries.After Pant reached this 50, it was now just a matter of time before team India wrapped up the game. Needing another 8 runs from 12 balls, they were expected to cruise home. But Pant lost his middle stump in the very next over to open the game for a late twist. Incoming Pandey could manage only 2 runs in the remaining four balls of the over.With India needing 5 of the last over, they lost Dhawan too, holding out to Pollard after he looked to seal the game with a big six. Pandey then along with Karthik guided the hosts home of the last ball, avoiding a late upset.The win sees India wrap up the series 3-0. Shikhar Dhawan won the man of the match for his match winning knock of 92 while Kuldeep Yadav received the man of the series. The game thus concludes the home series vs Windies. India will now travel to Australia to take them on in a 3 match T20 series that commences from 21st November.India 182 for 4 (Dhawan 92, Pant 58) beat West Indies 181 for 3 (Pooran 53*, Bravo 43*) by six wickets.Also Read:Cricket: Film Director Anubhav Sinha lends his support in favour of Virat Kohli Advertisementlast_img read more

AOL Deploys Socialthing Across the Web

first_imgTags:#AOL#NYT#Product Reviews#social networks#Social Web#web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro…center_img Related Posts sarah perez Today, AOL announced that they’re deploying Socialthing for Websites across the company’s network of 75+ MediaGlow web properties. The service transforms static sites into social web destinations by allowing visitors to share their experiences across other social properties like Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, Bebo, and more. It also allows for real-time interactions while on the site, thanks to AIM and ICQ integration. Socialthing, once considered a competitor to fellow lifestreaming service FriendFeed, still exists as a social media aggregation portal (in private beta) at socialthing.com where users can stream their activities from across the social web. After AOL purchased Socialthing last year, they soon integrated the technology into their social networking site, Bebo, where it served as a tool to import social web activity into Bebo’s version of the News Feed. Now, with the introduction of Socialthing for Websites, a service that made a quiet debut last week on AOL’s country music destination “The Boot,” AOL is transforming all their media properties into social media properties. How it WorksWith Socialthing, web site visitors can sign in to the various web sites using their AOL screenname and password, and soon their Bebo, Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo, or OpenID, instead of having to create a new account on the site. This ability puts it up against other single sign-in heavyweights like Facebook Connect and Google Friend Connect. The authentication is made possible by the AOL Open Authentication (OpenAuth) Platform which allows sites to authenticate users using AOL and AIM usernames and passwords and is now being expanded to support the other services as well. In addition, visitors can also chat with each other over AIM and ICQ while on the site itself, a feature that allows for real-time interactions between those who share common interests. And then there is, of course, the social syndication aspect. Site visitors will be able to share messages and experiences across the social web including sites like Bebo, AIM, ICQ, Facebook, Myspace and Twitter. Socialthing Differentiates Itself from FriendFeed & Competes with Facebook ConnectThe authentication aspect, the active social sharing, and the online chat now set the new Socialthing for Websites apart from its one-time competitor FriendFeed. Today’s Socialthing service is much more than a simple lifestream aggregator – it’s a tool that can transform closed sites into social web portals. But will Socialthing pick up any traction outside of AOL’s own properties? It could since the platform is open for developers to build services on top of it or integrate it into their own sites. That may actually have some appeal over, say, Facebook Connect for example, since it won’t limit you to sharing your content with just one social networking site. However, now that Facebook has opened up their data streams to developers, it’s clear that the battle for conversation control is just getting started. Despite Socialthing’s open nature, it’s possible they’ll still have a tough time competing considering the Facebook revolution that’s currently underway. AOL says Socialthing will launch on their blog for movie enthusiasts, Cinematical, in the “coming weeks” before rolling out the technology to the rest of their sites. last_img read more
