We did lack quite a few key players but that’s no excuse.”The players worked hard and ran their socks off but at the moment we’re in a place we’re not used to.

Twitter/@CoachKatieMeierMiami women’s basketball coach Katie Meier was not happy with the sexist slides from the Texas A&M football women’s clinic, which have gotten the Aggies criticized nationally and led to the suspension of two staff members.Last night, Meier blasted A&M on Twitter for the slides. She also expressed disapproval for only punishing offensive line coach Jim Turner and special teams coordinator Jeff Banks with two-week suspensions.Miami women’s basketball coach Katie Meier fires back at the Aggies’ presentation.This cannot be REAL life in 2016 college athletics. We are EDUCATORS. We WORK in higher education. W set standards https://t.co/WMvuRgXn8e— Katie Meier (@CoachKatieMeier) July 30, 2016 The actual slides are degrading and offensive. I have seen them. 2 week suspension is a joke. Change the culture https://t.co/586e9HTevu— Katie Meier (@CoachKatieMeier) July 30, 2016Meier is a well-respected coach, having compiled a 283-188 record (.591 winning percentage) at Charlotte and Miami. She has taken the Hurricanes to five NCAA Tournaments in the last six years.One of the suspended A&M coaches, Jim Turner, has been in hot water before. Turner was the offensive line coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2012-13 and was a major figure in the team’s bullying scandal.A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin released a statement apologizing for the action’s of his staffers.“There is absolutely no place in our program or in our University community for inappropriate conduct or degrading comments towards women, or anyone, regardless of intent.[…]“On behalf of Aggie football, I want to apologize for the comments at Chalk Talk and also for my failure to review their individual presentations. I want to thank the almost 700 women who came out this week who not only participated in the program but who supported a worthy cause in the Twin City Mission.”For a coach rumored to be on the hot seat, this is probably the last thing Sumlin needed.

The Ohio State men’s soccer team has had success thanks to great play from its goalkeepers, especially from redshirt freshman Matt Lampson.“He has been playing very well lately,” coach John Bluem said. “I think Matt has taken the position now, it’s going to be his and he is going to try and hold onto it.”The freshman stepped up early in the season and helped guide OSU to its best start in school history.A week ago, the Big Ten named Lampson the conference’s defensive player of the week because of his stellar play against Michigan State.On the season Lampson has three shutouts and .93 goals against average.But Lampson is not the only goalkeeper OSU has on its roster, and Bluem is confident in every one of the young keepers. The Buckeyes have three solid goalies who could potentially take the starting job.Other then Lampson, the Buckeyes have redshirt sophomore Ryan Dalton, who has been seeing more and more play time because of his solid play.OSU also has a true freshman in Alex Wimmer, who is ready to go when his number is called. Had Wimmer not been injured at the beginning of the season, he would have challenged for the starting spot.Coming into the season, Bluem worried his team might be inexperienced at goalie.“No worries anymore,” Bluem said. “Wimmer is ready to go if we need him, Dalton has played really well in the times we used him and Lampson is in really good form right now. I am very pleased at the way they have been playing.”The Buckeyes, however, are in the middle of a tough stretch of games.The team has lost its last two games, 3-0 to Akron and 1-0 to Northwestern. After the Northwestern loss, Bluem questioned the team’s level of effort.“It’s a tough stretch. Hopefully we can address some things and come out with a more intense effort,” Bluem said.With a full schedule ahead, the team wants get back on the field quickly and perform better. OSU is hoping that is the case when they face Cleveland State on Friday.Cleveland State (3-4-3) comes into the game struggling on offense, scoring only one goal in its last three games.But with 11 seniors and the entire defense returning, the Buckeyes will have to be ready.Friday’s match will be played at 5 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
For the Portugal international footballer, the impact his fellow countryman had in Real Madrid was gigantic and cannot be equalAfter Real Madrid lost 5-1 against a Lionel Messi-less Barcelona team, Portugal international footballer Joao Cancelo paid tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo.“Every day I train with Cristiano Ronaldo and so far he has won five editions of the Ballon d’Or,” Cancelo told Sky Sport Italia as quoted by Football Italia.“If Cristiano doesn’t win it this year, it’s just incredible. He is the best of them all and last season he was more decisive than any other player.”Top 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“The Ballon d’Or can’t just be decided by the World Cup, because that tournament can only be won by a certain number of select nations,” he said.“If you are born in France, Germany or Brazil, clearly sooner or later you’re going to win a World Cup. Seeing Portugal win the Euros, that is a huge achievement and very rare.”“Cristiano won the Champions League as an absolute protagonist, scoring 15 goals. When he plays for a team, that team becomes the best there is,” he commented.“The proof is in the latest Clasico result. Barcelona without Lionel Messi win 5-1, Real Madrid without Cristiano Ronaldo lose 5-1. That is the difference.”
