SENIOR SATURDAY EVENING

Nevada plans to honor its senior class ahead of Saturday night’s game against Fresno State. Although the full list of players to be honored is not finalized (due to available redshirts and COVID “bonus” years), the ceremony will be held prior to the game on the pitch.

SANDERS RECEIVES NATIONAL RECOGNITION

Nevada safety Bentlee Sanders, one of the seniors honored Saturday night, has earned significant national recognition in recent weeks for his outstanding play this season.

On October 18, Sanders was named to the Associated Press Midseason All-America Team, taking one of the safeties alongside Georgia’s Christopher Smith. This Monday, Oct. 24, Sanders was once again honored by being named one of 12 semi-finalists for the Paycom Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the best defensive back in college football.

Sanders has been an individual takeout machine in 2022, having appeared in eight of Nevada’s 18 takeouts. He is one of eight players tied for second in the nation with five interceptions, and is tied for third in the nation with three forced fumbles.

TALTON BECOMES MOUNTAIN WEST CAREER FG LEADER

Senior kicker Brandon Talton hit a milestone with his 26-yard field goal on the final play of the first half Saturday against Boise State. The basket was the 65th of Talton’s career, making him Mountain West’s career leader, surpassing the mark of 64 set by Utah State’s Dominik Eberle (2015-19).

Talton, named to the 2022 Lou Groza Award preseason watch list in July, was 6-for-6 on field goal attempts and 12-for-12 on PATs in four games this season before suffering an injury. training the week before the September 23 game at the Air Force. The injury forced him to miss the next five games before returning against Boise State.

Talton ranks third on Nevada’s career lists in field goals and third in kicks with 314 points.

On September 3 against Texas State, Talton’s fifth PAT of the game took him to 300 career points, making him the eighth player and fourth kicker in Nevada history to reach that mark.

TAUA HITS THE MARK OF THE CENTURY AGAINST BOISE (AGAIN)

Running back Toa Taua continued a strong final season at Nevada, hitting the century mark for the third time this season with his 103-yard effort Saturday against Boise State. It was Taua’s second 100-yard performance in three career games against the Broncos, after rushing for 124 yards in last year’s 41-31 win.

Toa and his older brother Vai, Nevada’s current assistant head coach and a Wolf Pack running back from 2007 to 2010, each played three times against Boise State and each recorded two 100-yard rushing games.

Taua is also advancing into the respective Top 10 of a few all-time Nevada categories thanks to his performances this season.

Taua entered 2022 in Nevada’s top 10 in career rushing yards and currently sits seventh at 3,760 yards. His 809 career rushing attempts are the fifth all-time at Nevada through Nov. 12. His 32 rushing touchdowns rank ninth in Nevada history.

He currently ranks second in tackles for loss and third in sacks on Nevada’s career lists.

Going through Kansas Athletics

LAWRENCE, Kan. –The No. 5-ranked Kansas Jayhawks improved to 2-0 this season with a decisive 82-59 win over North Dakota State on Thursday night at Allen Fieldhouse. Redshirt junior Jalen Wilson finished just short of a double-double with game-highs 21 points and nine rebounds on the night.

Kansas dominated the game from the jump. Wilson scored nine of the first 14 points for the Jayhawks and finished with 17 in the half. Already holding a 16-6 lead, KU went on a 10-0 run to push the lead to 26-9 with 9:11 to go in the first half. A layup by KU freshman MJ Rice in his first career game forced a timeout from the Bison.

The timeout didn’t slow Kansas’ offense, as KU went on an 11-0 run shortly after to make it 40-13. KU held a 48-19 lead at the break after sinking six three-pointers and shooting 55.9% from the field in the first half. The 29-point halftime lead was the largest since 2019 against Monmouth as Kansas led by 38 points at halftime.

The Jayhawks would go on to lead up to 34 points in the second half. North Dakota State cut that deficit to 23 points, but that was as close as the Bison would get the rest of the contest.

Rice finished his career opener with 10 points, four rebounds and two assists, while fellow freshman Gradey Dick had 12 points, six rebounds and three assists. Sophomore Bobby Pettiford Jr. had a career-high eight assists.

For the second straight game, Kansas controlled the glass with a 46-32 advantage. The Jayhawks grabbed 13 offensive rebounds in the contest and scored 46 points in the paint.

Kansas will face the No. 7 Duke in the State Farm Champions Classic on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 8:30 p.m. PT in Indianapolis at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. The contest will be televised on ESPN. Kansas is 6-5 all-time in the Champions Classic, including 2-1 against Duke in the event.

If this week is any indication so far, things are looking up for the Miami Hurricanes.

Reports are optimistic that quarterback Tyler Van Dyke will be back under center as the Hurricanes (4-4 overall, 2-2 ACC) prepare to face the Florida State Seminoles. Van Dyke missed last week’s 14-12 quadruple overtime win over Virginia with a shoulder injury.

Nick Garcia took the win in place of Van Dyke, but Van Dyke will bring a slightly more dynamic style under center.

The Seminoles (5-3, 3-3) are coming off a big 41-16 win over Georgia Tech, where Jordan Travis threw three touchdown passes and FSU scored more than 600 total yards on offense.

Soccer






COLUMBIA, Mo. – The University of Missouri has approved a contract extension for defensive football coordinator Mizzou Blake Baker throughout the 2025 season, which includes an increase in his annual salary, head coach Eliah Drinkwitz announced Thursday.

“We’re really thrilled with not only Blake, but the rest of our defensive staff as well,” Drinkwitz said. “He’s done a really good job using our program and playing well together and making good calls at the right time. I appreciate our administration and our athletic department and the board of curators for investing in our program and we look forward to Coach Baker being our defensive coordinator for a long time.”

Baker, in his freshman year at Mizzou, had led a defense that ranks in the top half of the Southeastern Conference. The Tigers are allowing just 310.6 yards per game, the 19th-best mark nationally — a marked improvement from the 2021 team which allowed 434.7 yards per game, ranking 106th in FBS. The 87-seat improvement ranks second nationally, behind Virginia (+90) which ranked 121st in 2021 and moved up to 31st in 2022.

“I’m honored by the trust Coach Drinkwitz has placed in me and I look forward to continuing to help improve our team,” Baker said. “Make no mistake, it’s a reflection of the hard work of our defensive team and, more importantly, our players. We have a resilient squad, and no matter where the ball is, they step in and play hard. My family and I love Columbia and look forward to the years to come.

Mizzou (4-4, 2-3 SEC) returns to Faurot Field/Memorial Stadium on Saturday to face Kentucky. The Tigers will celebrate Military Appreciation Day and Agriculture Day in a game that begins at 11:00 a.m. CT and will air on SEC Network and Tiger Radio Network.

Nicaragua’s access to credible information is shrinking. The Ortega-Murillo regime not only continues to shut down local media and persecute its journalists, but is now also making content available from the Russian radio and broadcast network Sputnik to about twenty Nicaraguan public media.

“It is a practice that by design aims to close the space of information, to keep people in the dark, because the opacity of information carries control and power”, said María Isabel Puerta, a political scientist with a doctorate in social sciences, in exile in the United States, says Dialogo October 12. For [Russia]it is essential that his version of events – especially since the invasion of Ukraine – continues to sow distrust of democracy and the countries that guarantee democracy.

The dissemination of Russian news in Nicaraguan media was made possible thanks to a September 5 cooperation agreement between the media coordinator of the Communication and Citizenship Council of Nicaragua, Daniel Edmundo Ortega Murillo, son of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo, and Vasili Pushkov, Director of International Cooperation at Sputnik.

“This agreement goes against what the Nicaraguan people demand: the freedom to express themselves, the freedom to be informed, without speeches manipulated by power, with plural debates, with the possibility of listening to voices various,” said Carlos Jornet, chairman of the Freedom of the Press and Information Committee of the Inter-American Press Association, said Voice of America. “It’s an alliance in which both parties cement their disdain for professional journalism and their quest for consolidation of a narrative removed from reality.”

The regime not only attacks the local media, but also the international press. “TO CNN in Spanish we believe in the vital role that freedom of the press plays in a healthy democracy. On [September 21] the Nicaraguan regime has taken down our television signal, denying Nicaraguans news and information from our network, which they have trusted for more than 25 years,” the network said in a statement. “CNN in Spanish will continue to fulfill its responsibility to the Nicaraguan public by offering our information links on CNNEspanol.comso that they can access information that is not otherwise available.

Rosario Murillo told state media that the network violated the Sovereign Security Law, passed in 2015, but did not provide specific details. AFP reported.

“The media are fundamental pillars in a democratic system. Consequently, for [non-democratic] regimes that they are an enemy to be defeated and bent, in order to have control over the media and control over information,” Puerta said. “Disinformation is what contributes to a large extent to the maintenance of the political regime. An authoritarian regime must control public opinion. The free press is always an obstacle in this direction.

According to the latest report on press freedom violations in Nicaragua by Voice of the Sur (Voices of the South), a regional network of Latin American civil society organizations that promotes and defends freedom of the press and freedom of expression, 30 media, including 27 radio stations, three television channels, five local newscasts, one national and at least five talk shows were shut down between January and August 2022.

For its part, the Independent Journalists and Communicators of Nicaragua (PCIN) reports that more than 120 journalists are in exile. In Costa Rica alone, 65 digital, print, radio and television professionals are in exile.

“The persecution of the press in Nicaragua is only a reflection of the regime’s fear that what is really happening in the country will be exposed”, Víctor Pérez, director of the Nicaraguan digital magazine InterTextual and a member of the PCIN executive committee, said Dialogo. “Some of the acts against the press are the product of a generalized desperation that seeks only to silence us, as we inform the population of the reality of what is happening inside and outside the country. .”

Amid the situation in Nicaragua, Puerta recommends creating information networks, supporting independent media and being careful about the information shared, so as not to add to the tools of disinformation that already exist.

“In this environment where the regime has an iron fist, in order to prevent the dissemination of content [with disinformation], we must take responsibility for what we broadcast; so that people can have access to truthful, real and verifiable information,” concluded Puerta.

PHOENIX — A federal judge on Friday refused to bar a group from surveilling open-air ballot boxes in Arizona’s largest county where observers showed up armed and wearing bulletproof vests, saying it could violate the constitutional rights of observers.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Liburdi said the case remains open and the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans may try again to make its case against a group calling itself Clean Elections USA. A second plaintiff, Voto Latino, was removed from the case.

Liburdi concluded that “while this case certainly presents serious issues, the Court cannot craft an injunction without violating the First Amendment.” The judge is a Trump appointee and a member of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal organization.

Local and federal law enforcement has been alarmed by reports of people, some of whom were masked and armed, guarding ballot boxes around the clock in Maricopa County – Arizona’s most populous county – and rural Yavapai County ahead of midterm elections. Some voters have complained of being intimidated by voters after people watching the ballot boxes took photos and videos and followed voters.

Arizona law states that voters and monitors must stay 23 meters (75 feet) from a polling location.

“The plaintiffs have provided the court with no evidence that the defendants’ conduct poses a genuine threat,” the judge wrote. “In this case, the defendants made no statements threatening to commit acts of unlawful violence against any particular individual or group of individuals.”

The Arizona Alliance for American Retirees said it was disappointed.

“We continue to believe that the intimidation and harassment of Clean Elections USA is unlawful,” he said shortly before filing a lawsuit.

Liburdi issued his decision two days after a hearing on the first of two similar cases. The lawyer for Clean Elections USA had argued that such a broad restraining order would be unconstitutional.

A second lawsuit involving charges of voter intimidation at drop boxes in Arizona’s Yavapai County has since been merged with the first.

Sheriff’s deputies provide security around the two Maricopa County outdoor drop boxes after a pair of people carrying guns and wearing body armor showed up at a box in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa . The county’s other 24-hour outdoor drop box is at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center in downtown Phoenix, which is now surrounded by a chain-link fence.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican, called on voters to immediately report any bullying to police and file a complaint with his office. The Arizona secretary of state said this week that her office had received six cases of potential voter intimidation against the state’s attorney general and the US Department of Justice, as well as an email threatening sent to the State Elections Officer.

The Maricopa County Department of Elections warehouse stores all equipment and signage for all Phoenix polling places on September 8, 2022.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona pledged to pursue any violations of federal law, but said local police were on the “front line to ensure that all qualified voters can exercise their right to vote without intimidation or other electoral abuses”.

“We will vigorously protect the right of all Arizonans to vote freely and legally in elections,” the office said Wednesday. “As the numerous election threat cases awaiting federal felony charges for alleged criminal activity arising out of our state demonstrate, acts that cross the line will not go unaddressed.”

Tensions escalated Friday afternoon outside the drop box in Mesa, where a voter arrived on a motorcycle, dropped off their ballot, then made a lewd gesture at an Associated Press photographer and to a local TV crew stationed in a parking lot across the street. Reporters identified themselves as working news media to a second man who later drove by in an SUV. He told them he was filming them and would report them to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack.

Meanwhile, the Citizens Clean Elections Commission, an Arizona state agency, voted unanimously on Thursday for its legal counsel to seek a court order if needed to stop the watchdog group from using the name Clean Elections. The commission set up in 1998 to provide voters with nonpartisan election information said it had been bombarded with angry calls from people mistaking it for the watchdog group.

The second lawsuit that has been incorporated into the first case involves ballot boxes in Yavapai County, Arizona, where the League of Women Voters alleges voters were intimidated by Clean Elections USA, as well as the Liberty Lions and Team Yavapai County Preparedness Group, which are associated with the far-right anti-government group Oath Keepers.

Lions of Liberty board member Luke Cilano said the organization dropped its “Operation Drop Box” initiative on Wednesday “because it was lumped in with people who do not follow the law and our rules of conduct.” ‘commitment”.

Cilano said the “official withdrawal order” to all members was in response to ongoing litigation.

“Our goal is not to scare people away from voting,” he said. “We love our country very much.”

Cilano said the Freedom Lions are in no way associated with Clean Elections USA. He said his group was linked to the Yavapai County Readiness Team, but the team was not involved in ballot box monitoring.

Similar groups across the United States have embraced a discredited film called “2000 Mules” which claims people were paid to travel among drop boxes and stuff them with fraudulent ballots in the presidential vote of 2020.

There is no evidence for the idea that a network of voting “mules” associated with the Democrats conspired to collect and deliver ballots to the polls, either in the 2020 presidential vote or in the upcoming ones. midterm elections.
