After 5-0 start, Northwestern will continue thriving

first_imgNorthwestern University is known for many things: its near-Ivy League admission standards, the small-town charm of Evanston, Ill., and a beautiful campus to name a few, but being a top 25 football program is not one of them.With a 5-0 start to the season after a recent 44-29 victory over Indiana (2-2), the Wildcat name enters the field of college football’s top teams. The program emerged in both the AP and Coaches Top 25 polls this week, at No. 24 and 22, respectively. This is the first time the team has has been ranked since 2008. Though the Wildcats by no means give Alabama a run for their money, the team deserves the recognition and some attention for its success thus far.After a late-touchdown win in its first game against Syracuse (1-3), Northwestern handed an SEC opponent a loss in Week 2, defeating a decent Vanderbilt (1-3) team. The Wildcats outscored Vandy 17-3 in the fourth quarter, a good sign for a team that typically allows opponents back into the game after taking an early lead. The Wildcats finished out their nonconference play with home wins over Boston College (1-3) and South Dakota (2-2).I realize these teams, with the exception of Vanderbilt, are not high-caliber competition. However, when you consider the Big Ten is 6-9 against teams from other BCS automatic-qualifying conferences and three of those wins belong to Northwestern, it sounds pretty good.Starting out Big Ten play against an Indiana team that went 1-11 last year doesn’t help improve the quality of programs this team has beaten, but looking at what Northwestern has done on the field should turn a few heads.What is brewing just north of Chicago is not the standard look of a football team. But uniqueness is a trait that can separate the good from the best. I am not saying this Wildcat team is close to being the best, but it has an X factor.Which brings me to the curious case of Kain Colter.I must state I do not follow Wildcat football religiously, so when I first started to research this Colter kid, I had to do a double take to make sure I was in fact seeing the same player throw, run and catch the ball.The junior quarterback’s performance that encompassed all three of these roles against the Hoosiers was a key element to setting a school record of 704 total offensive yards. Colter attempted just three passes in the game, one of which was an interception. But running for 161 yards and four touchdowns, as well as racking up 131 receiving yards off nine passes, made up for that error. While Colter’s main role was at quarterback in previous games, head coach Pat Fitzgerald changed things up, and the team did not skip a beat.Colter’s performance Saturday earned him co-offensive Big Ten Player of the Week with Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez. His dynamic ability on the field and his abilities need to be given more attention.If Northwestern keeps winning, I think that will happen.A win Saturday against Penn State will be a good indicator of whether this team is going to stay near the top of the Big Ten. With games against Nebraska, Michigan and Michigan State remaining on the schedule, Saturday is a must-win. I don’t expect the Wildcats to make it through the Big Ten untouched, but those three matchups down the road are winnable games with the way this team has been playing.Offensively, Northwestern has the talent, as well as adaptability, and that will be its strength entering the rest of its games.The questions surround the play of the team’s defense. The Wildcats have allowed their opponents too much time in the pocket, something their future Big Ten opponents will punish them for if the defensive line does not improve its pass rush performance.Historically, what plagues this team is not being able to come up with wins later in the season. To see this, look no further than the Wildcats’ bowl history. The program earned a spot in a bowl game the last four seasons and has appeared in 10 bowl games in the program’s history. Not a bad number, but what is dreadful to look at are the outcomes. Northwestern is currently tied for the longest losing streak with nine straight losses in bowl games. Ouch.Could this be the year the trend ends? I like Colter, and I like the players that surround him. This season, we have seen Big Ten teams with a single player in the spotlight not performing so far this season. For example: Denard Robinson and Michigan, Le’Veon Bell and Michigan State and, though I hate to say it, Montee Ball and Wisconsin. If you look at No. 1 Alabama or No. 2 Oregon, you see an all-around great team before you name a single star player. I see a similar situation at Northwestern. Colter is its best player, but his multiple talents allow Fitzgerald to use his other top players, namely quarterback Trevor Siemian and running back Venric Mark.I see a win for the Wildcats in University Park Saturday, and a top two finish in the Legends Division is very possible if this happens.last_img read more

Bear euthanized after breaking into campers tent at Peace Island Park early

first_imgTAYLOR, B.C. — A frightening incident led to a black bear being destroyed by Conservation Officers on Sunday after it broke into an occupied tent on Peace Island Park early that morning.Sgt. Shawn Brinsky with the Conservation Officer Service said that the C-O-S first received a call at around 2:30 yesterday morning of a black bear that was up a tree in Peace Island Park. She said that such reports are not uncommon, especially at this time of year, and that officers decided to investigate further after daybreak. At around 9:20 a.m., officers responded after getting another report from park staff of a bear that had been hanging around the area, before they learned from a camper at the park that a bear had broken through the screen of his tent at around around 1:00 a.m. The camper was not injured and scared the bear off, but the animal returned to the tent three hours later. Sgt. Brinsky said that Conservation Officers evacuated that area of the park and set several traps, one of which caught caught a bear yesterday evening in the exact same location of the tent. After looking at a photograph previously taken of a bear in a tree, measuring the paw prints on the tent and measuring the caught bear, officers came to the conclusion that the bear was most likely the same one that broke into the tent early that morning. The bear was subsequently euthanized.Sgt. Brinsky said that the incident serves as a warning to campers to keep bear attractants hidden or locked up so that the smells don’t lure the animals. “There’s a couple things at play here,” said Brinksy. “When camping, even in Regional Parks  you in and around greenbelts in this area, you have to make the assumption that you’re going to be in and around wildlife, and that can include bears. You want to make sure you have a clean campsite, and that you’re bear aware. We have to make that people are diligent with keeping attractants and garbage inaccessible to bears. Especially at this time of year when they’re a little bit food-stressed. They’re looking for food, they’re curious, and they’re going to check out smells and odours. A bear demonstrating that type of behaviour is something that is indicative of a bear that’s been rewarded with non-natural food sources.”This isn’t the first close call in Northeast B.C. in recent years. Nearly three years ago to the day, 27-year-old Daniel O’Connor was found to have been killed by a black bear while he slept by a campfire just outside of Mackenzie. The bear and a wolf, which was also seen in the area were later tracked down and euthanized by Conservation Officers.With files from CBC News: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/bear-attack-kills-camper-daniel-ward-o-connor-near-mackenzie-b-c-1.3069202last_img read more

Apple Qualcomm bury hatchet in royalties battle royale

first_imgSan Francisco: Apple and American microchip manufacturer Qualcomm said Tuesday they have agreed to “dismiss all litigation” against each other worldwide in what had been a sprawling battle over royalty payments. The last-minute settlement cut short a courtroom clash between the tech giants just as it was getting underway in California. For two years, the companies had fought a multi-front brawl that could have required Qualcomm to pay billions. The news sent Qualcomm’s stock price soaring more than 23 percent on Wall Street, its best one-day performance in nearly 20 years. The deal includes a six-year license agreement with the option to extend for two years, and a payment to Qualcomm from Apple, the companies said. At the heart of the battle were the royalties Qualcomm charges for its patented chips, which enable smartphones to connect to mobile networks. Apple accused Qualcomm, which holds the most patents for chips, of taking advantage of its dominant position to charge exorbitant amounts for its chips or access to its patents. Qualcomm denied the allegations and accused Apple of abusing its position and of taking legal action to negotiate prices down. “I believe both Apple and Qualcomm got deeper into this than they wanted to,” analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy said in a statement. “This settlement should be good for the wireless industry as companies should feel free to invest in research, get paid a fair price for those inventions, and consumers take advantage of those innovations at a very rapid pace.” Several hours after the deal was announced, Intel said it was withdrawing from the 5G smartphone modem business, without indicating whether its decision was a cause or consequence of the agreement its rival signed with Apple.last_img read more
