Rehabbing Notre Dame Linebacker Jaylon Smith Says He’s Leg Pressing Over 600 Pounds, Squatting 400

first_imgJaylon Smith helped off the field by trainers.Jaylon Smith Injury Jaylon Smith InjuryJaylon Smith InjuryFew players had a worse NFL Combine than Notre Dame’s Jaylon Smith, through no fault of his own. Smith was failed by multiple teams on his physical due to potential nerve damage stemming from the significant knee injury he suffered against Ohio State, which included a torn ACL and LCL.Smith, once viewed as a potential top 10 draft pick, will probably fall out of the first round altogether, but he’s doing whatever he can to prove that he is healing up. In an interview with Yahoo Sports, he revealed that he is currently leg pressing over 600 pounds, and squatting over 400.Can Smith feel a tangible difference physically in the past five weeks?“Oh yeah, absolutely,” Smith said. “A few weeks have made a huge difference, even the past two weeks. I can feel it.“Rehab is going great. I am leg-pressing over 600 pounds right now. I am squatting over 400 pounds. I am getting that strength back. It’s just a matter of time.”Asked whether it has been determined if he suffered nerve in the injury, Smith was a bit vague, but he remained upbeat.“We’ll see when I go back there [to the medical recheck],” Smith said. “We’ll see what the doctors say then. I feel like I’ve regained some of it. I’m happy where I am at right now.”When healthy, Smith is an incredibly impressive prospect. Hopefully he finds a team that will take a chance on him.[Yahoo Sports]More: Vote In Our “Most Annoying People In Sports Media” Championship >>>last_img read more

Sullingers status uncertain as Buckeyes prepare for bout with Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. — All eyes are on Ohio State men’s basketball’s sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, whose availability is unknown as the Buckeyes prepare for their first road test of the season against the University of Kansas Jayhawks. After suffering back spasms in a Nov. 29 victory against Duke and missing No. 2-ranked OSU’s last game, Sullinger may miss consecutive games for the first time in his college career when the Buckeyes battle the No. 13-ranked Jayhawks Saturday in Lawrence, Kan. Sullinger’s health was the first topic OSU coach Thad Matta addressed during a Thursday press conference. “(Sullinger) is feeling better,” Matta said. “He’s doing more every day, but quite honestly, I don’t know if we’ll know until Saturday whether he’s going to play or not.” An OSU athletic department spokesman did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s Saturday request for comment regarding Sullinger’s status.  OSU sophomore guard Aaron Craft said Sullinger was walking around gingerly at the start of the week, but made noticeable improvements in the days that followed. Craft added that he was uncertain of Sullinger’s availability the Kansas game. “(Sullinger) has got the bounce back in his step,” Craft said. “We’ll just see how it goes.” Matta said he was amazed at how much better Sullinger was moving around, but that he doesn’t want to jeopardize his player’s health. “I’m thinking ‘big picture’ here,” Matta said. “Much more than Saturday’s game, or anything along those lines.” Sullinger started all 37 games OSU played last season and had started in each of OSU’s first seven games during the 2011-12 campaign until he was forced from the lineup for the team’s 64-35 win against Texas-Pan American last Saturday. Should Sullinger miss the Kansas game, Matta said the team will not deviate from its usual game plan. “To reinvent the wheel — we’re not going to do that,” he said. “I like the progress we’ve made this week.” Without Sullinger, guarding Thomas Robinson, Kansas’ 6-foot-10, 237-pound junior forward, may be complicated. “(Robinson) is a phenomenal basketball player, and probably the best that we’ve gone against this year,” Matta said. That task of defending Robinson would likely fall to junior forward Evan Ravenel or sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas, and then OSU still has the Jayhawks’ 7-foot, 235-pound redshirt junior center Jeff Withey to contend with. Ravenel said hard work could help nullify Robinson and Withey. “Getting early position, boxing out — things you learn when you first start playing basketball,” Ravenel said of his likely defensive assignments. “(Robinson) is a great athlete and he works hard.” With or without Sullinger, Craft said he thinks that playing on the road against Kansas is a great opportunity for OSU. He also thinks the Buckeyes can win. “If Jared doesn’t play, Jared doesn’t play,” he said. “We’re not going to miss a beat. We have great guys like (Ravenel) … that have come in and practiced just as hard as Jared has.” Ravenel agreed. “We work on execution,” Ravenel said. “We’re going to get in there and do everything we can.” OSU (8-0) tips off against Kansas (6-2) at 3:15 p.m. at Allen Fieldhouse. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN. read more

Maldini on the mutual respect between AC Milan and Liverpool

first_imgPaolo Maldini spoke of the mutual respect between AC Milan and Liverpool after the clubs’ legends traded tackles at Anfield on Saturday.Liverpool FC Legends secured a 3-2 win over Milan, with Steven Gerrard saving the best for the last with a late winner at the Kop end.Funds raised from ticket sales and the entire game would be given to the Charity organization.And the legendary Maldini who didn’t feature in the game spoke about the encounter and the relationship of both clubs.The former Milan skipper revealed to LFC.TV why he couldn’t play a part in the game and the Anfield atmosphere.“I played too much in my life: 25 years.

There’s a lot of respect, crazy games. This is a real opportunity to bring back memories, it’s a beautiful day.He also spoke about the famous Istanbul Miracle that secured the Reds fifth European crown.“[I don’t think about it] anymore. I thought about it for three or four months after the game finished. But it’s the beauty of the sport; you can dominate the game, be winning 3-0, I score the first goal – a lot of strange things – but at the end, the result was bad for us. In football, you have good things and bad things.“I’m working for AC Milan, I’m the sporting director with Leonardo, so I’m very, very busy. We’re very close to the team and we want this team to be back where it was 10 years ago.”last_img read more

How Popular Science Uses Video to Find New Audiences on Social Media

first_imgMallory JohnsFolio: In general, what are your goals when it comes to publishing on Snapchat and Instagram?Mallory Johns: In general, our goals are two-fold: 1) Brand awareness, and 2) Influencing the next generation of scientists, science writers, and curiosity aficionados. Across both platforms, we’re providing our community with a chance to go more in-depth with our articles by engaging with curiosity-inducing graphics and videos. And more specifically on Snapchat, we use that platform to get weird, whether through our semi-weekly series PopFriday or through takeovers with our editors.Folio: What are some ways PopSci uses Instagram to engage its audience? What kinds of posts seem to perform particularly well?Johns: PopSci‘s Instagram feed is nearly 100% video. We focus on sharing short videos around specific content buckets, so our community knows what to expect when they come to our feed—for example, most Fridays they can expect to see cool videos about flora and fauna, for example.We also have a robust archive—featuring well over 144 years of stories and scientific curiosities—and without fail, these posts are top-performers for us on Instagram. Additionally, our community loves to see anything about space or mind-blowing creatures. Mallory Johns is no stranger to image-based social media. At Popular Science, where she serves as the engagement editor, she oversees the editorial calendar across the brand’s social media channels, execution, management and measurement; develops partnerships with brands and influencers, and much more.Although smaller in size than the brand’s Facebook and Twitter audiences, PopSci‘s growing accounts on image-based social platforms like Instagram and Snapchat provide opportunities for Johns and her team to promote the brand and engage new readers.As a speaker at the 2017 Folio: Show, Johns will speak at a session entitled, “Snapchat & Instagram: How to Master the Fast-Growth World of Image-based Social Media.”Here, she shares some ideas from PopSci‘s strategies for engaging with audiences on the two platforms. Folio: How have you approached using Instagram Stories?Johns: We think of Instagram Stories as entirely separate from our Instagram profile, so we use Stories for two things: 1) To highlight the work of scientists in the field through account takeovers, and 2) To breakdown a feature or trending article—highlighting key elements—to direct our community back to our site to read more.Folio: What’s your general approach when a platform comes out with a new service or feature like that?Johns: In terms of jumping on new features or service, I’ve always been an early adopter, and I firmly believe in experimentation, seeing what works, and either iterating or moving on. Social is a fast-paced industry and to succeed, there is an element of risk-taking involved.Folio: What are some ways PopSci taps into Snapchat for engagement? Does the content offered there differ from Instagram, and if so, how?Johns: We will often cross-post content from our Instagram Stories to our Snapchat Stories because we’ve noticed a lot of overlap between the two communities, but we do host a semi-weekly, Snapchat-exclusive show called PopFriday, where we show off short science experiments.Folio: What are some challenges you’ve faced, and how have you tackled those obstacles?Johns: Both platforms have their hang-ups, but one of the biggest challenges is conversion—Instagram (and Instagram Stories) makes it a little easier, since they provide robust tools and analytics for driving traffic, but Snapchat is another story entirely, and our focus there is more on servicing our community with content they can’t get on popsci.com (or anywhere else).Folio: What are some ways you bring new audiences into your Snapchat and Instagram channels?Johns: Specifically for Snapchat, we’ve found a lot of success tapping into our +1M-member Twitter community—whenever we’ve produced a new PopFriday segment, we blast it out to our Twitter community and near-instantly see anywhere from 20-30 new followers.For Instagram, we’ve seen a lot of success utilizing website real estate to promote Instagram-only campaigns. Most recently, we launched a pretty hasty Instagram campaign for the solar eclipse—72 hours out from the event—and we managed to rack up 300 submissions within 24 hours after the solar eclipse, and I highlighted the best submissions in an on-site gallery.For more information about the Folio: show on October 9-11, click here.last_img read more
