Cincinnati Bearcats after win over USF, moves to #11 in AP & Coaches Top 25 Football Polls

CINCINNATI – On the heels of a 28-7 victory over American Athletic Conference foe USF on Saturday, October 3 at Nippert Stadium, the University of Cincinnati football team achieved its highest national ranking since 2009.

The 3-0 Bearcats are ranked No. 11 in both the Associated Press and Amway USA Today Coaches polls. It’s UC’s highest AP ranking since the final poll of the 2009 season when the Bearcats finished fourth and highest spot in the coaches poll since Dec. 6, 2009 when UC closed the regular season as No. 4.

Cincinnati set a school record with its 16th straight win at home, the fifth-longest active streak among NCAA FBS schools. The Bearcats won 15 straight home games from Nov. 8, 1952 to Nov. 13, 1954. Cincinnati is one of seven teams in the FBS to go undefeated at home the last two-plus seasons, joining Ohio State, UAB, Clemson and Notre Dame.

UC leads the American in scoring defense and total defense, forcing eight turnovers through three games.

The Bearcats return to action on Saturday, Oct. 17 at Tulsa.

Chicago Blackhawks part ways with longtime goalie Corey Crawford

October 8, 2020

 

After 13 NHL seasons, the Corey Crawford era in Blackhawks history has officially ended.

Senior Vice President/General Manager Stan Bowman made it official by saying that the team will not renew the 35-year-old contract and the goalie will become a free agent.

“I had a conversation with Corey earlier today and it was a bit of an emotional talk. Corey and I go back a long time,” he told reporters. “He’s up there with the legends for the Blackhawks: Tony Esposito, Glenn Hall, Corey Crawford. Corey stands tall as a two-time Cup champion.”

A second-round pick of the Blackhawks in 2003 (52nd overall), Crawford stepped into the starting role for the 2010-11 season and has been the go-to backstop ever since. The key part of Corey’s career was when Bowman sent back to Rockford the year prior before the 2009-10 campaign, to work on his game. That move really helped Crawford become a dependable goaltender that is expected in the NHL.

Crawford is the franchise’s only goalie to win multiple Stanley Cups (2013, 2015) and multiple William M. Jennings Trophies (2012-13, 2014-15) as the netminder with the fewest goals against in the regular season. He owns franchise records for playoff wins (52) and regular-season save percentage (.918, min. 100 appearances). He is second in 30+ win seasons (6), third in regular-season wins (260) and sixth in regular-season shutouts (26).

He also appeared in two NHL All-Star Games (2015, 2017) and represented his country in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, helping Team Canada to the gold medal.

The Blackhawks will have a three player battle for the starting netminder assignment between veteran Malcolm Subban, Kevin Lankinen and Collin Delia.

Won three Stanley Cups during 19 season NHL career with Hurricanes, Flyers, Kings & Capitals

October 8, 2020

 

RALEIGH, NC – Carolina Hurricanes forward Justin Williams today announced his retirement from the National Hockey League.

“Since I first broke into the league a day after my 19th birthday back in 2000, this game has brought me so much that I will never be able to repay it” Williams said. “The countless experiences, relationships, lessons and hardships will remain with me forever as I move on to the next stage of my life. I’ve never once taken for granted the privilege it is to be able to play a game for a living, and that is probably why I was able to play it professionally for as long as I have.

“I want to thank every single one of my teammates for challenging me every day to be better. My friend and agent Thane Campbell for having my back all these years. Bobby Clarke and the Philadelphia Flyers organization for seeing the potential in a scrawny kid from Cobourg, Ont., and selecting me in the draft. My first coach Craig Ramsay for giving me an opportunity right away to realize my dream of playing in the NHL. Jim Rutherford and the Carolina Hurricanes for seeing that same potential and allowing me to grow as a player. Phil Anschutz, Dean Lombardi, Michael Futa and the Los Angeles Kings organization whom I will forever be grateful to for helping me resurrect a career that was sliding away, and giving me a renewed confidence in myself at a time when I needed it most. The Washington Capitals organization for the chance to keep playing for championships. Peter Karmanos and Ron Francis for agreeing to bring me back to the place I now call home and finish my career for the Hurricanes. Tom Dundon and Rod Brind’Amour for their leadership and trust in me as a player to bring me back this past year for one last run.

“My family has sacrificed a lot for me to be where I am, so I want to thank my mom and dad for being there for me every step of the way. My sister, Nikki, for being my biggest fan since day one. My wife, Kelly, and my kids Jaxon and Jade for embracing this journey with me. Life is so much better when you have people you love to share it with.

“Thank you everyone as I retire from pro hockey.”

Williams, 39, recorded 797 points (320g, 477a) in 1,264 career NHL games with the Hurricanes, Flyers, Kings and Capitals. He is a three-time Stanley Cup Champion, winning titles with Carolina in 2006 and Los Angeles in 2012 and 2014. Williams also won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2014, awarded to the most valuable player during the playoffs. The 6’1″, 184-pound forward tallied 316 points (128g, 188a) in 449 career games with the Hurricanes, ranking sixth in team history (since relocation) in goals and assists and eighth in points. He is one of nine players in NHL history to score 100 goals and win the Stanley Cup with two different franchises.

Williams was named the 16th captain in franchise history on Sept. 13, 2018. He played in 162 career NHL playoff games, registering 102 points (41g, 61a). The Cobourg, Ont., native recorded 15 points (7g, 8a) in nine career Game 7s, which is the most career Game 7 points by any player in NHL history. Williams’ teams posted an 8-1 record in Game 7s.

Ben Olsen, former DC United player, departs team as head coach

October 8, 2020

 

EN ESPAÑOL

D.C. United have announced that Ben Olsen will depart as head coach of the club effective immediately. Assistant Coach, Chad Ashton will assume the role of Interim Manager.

While Olsen will no longer move forward as the head coach of D.C. United, he and the club are working together to determine a new role for him within the organization.

“Ben has been a fabric of the D.C. United organization for more than two decades, including his role as head coach for the last ten years, and we are forever grateful for his contributions and leadership,” said Jason Levien, Co-Chairman and CEO of D.C. United. “Over the course of his 22 years with the club, Ben has been a total professional and has represented this organization with incredible class and distinction. It is our sincere hope and belief that Ben will continue to have a big impact on the organization.”

Olsen, who took over as head coach of D.C. United in 2010, has led the club to the playoffs in five of the last six seasons, in addition to guiding the club to their third Lamar Hunt US Open Cup in 2013. Prior to his coaching role for the club, Olsen spent 11 seasons playing for D.C. United, winning eight trophies, including two MLS Cups (1999 and 2004).

“My overwhelming emotion right now is that I have been incredibly fortunate to be associated with this great club for 22 years. No one gets that opportunity in professional sports, and I am so much richer for all the amazing experiences and relationships along the way. I will always be grateful,” said Ben Olsen. “It is now time for a change. It is the right move. The club needs a new face and this is the right time for the club and also for me personally to move in a different direction. I spent the last 22 years waking up every morning thinking about how I could try to make this club better. I definitely didn’t get everything right, but I know I always gave everything I had to try to help this club achieve success. I want to thank everyone at the club, past and present, and all our fans for their support throughout this journey. I am very much looking forward to my next chapter and supporting the club I love.”

D.C. United will commence the search for a permanent head coach immediately and the club will provide further updates in due course.
