A classic win for USC

first_img It was also memorable for Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, who broke out green jerseys for the first time in his career, and visited USC’s locker room after the game. “I hope you guys win it all,” Weis told the Trojans. It didn’t look like USC would win anything most of Saturday, but the Trojans took a 24-21 lead on a 9-yard run by tailback Reggie Bush with 5:09 left. The Irish (4-2) made USC look ordinary, however, as they drove 86 yards for a 28-24 lead on quarterback Brady Quinn’s 5-yard run with 2:04 remaining. USC (6-0) then launched a memorable drive that featured everything you would expect from a classic rivalry game. Leinart threw an incomplete pass and got sacked to set up USC’s fourth-down dilemma. But the Heisman Trophy winner changed the play at the line and threw for Jarrett, who missed six plays because of the scratched cornea. “Honestly, I thought the pass was short,” Leinart said. Jarrett almost didn’t catch the pass, saying, “The ball was inside the defender and I had to reach around him. At the last second, he tried to grab it.” Jarrett got tackled at Notre Dame’s 13 and two Bush runs got the ball to the 2. That’s when things got a little crazy. With no timeouts and 23 seconds remaining, Leinart scrambled and attempted to dive in the end zone. He fumbled and the clock ticked down to 0:00, causing Notre Dame and its fans to rush the field. But the Pacific-10 Conference officiating crew ruled that Leinart fumbled after going out of bounds at the 1. “I knew they blew the whistle, I knew they would correct it,” Carroll said. Around this time, USC assistant coach Brennan Carroll signaled for a timeout but fortunately no one called one, because the Trojans were out. There were seven seconds and as the referees prepared to start the clock, so Carroll motioned to Leinart to spike the ball. Leinart then motioned to the offense that he would spike the ball. It all turned out to be a ploy. Carroll hoped to fool the Irish into relaxing if they thought Leinart would spike. He really wanted the quarterback to sneak it in to the end zone. Carroll learned the play watching former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino in the NFL. “I’m hoping their coaches will see it,” Carroll said. “And I’m hoping their players will relax. That someone will relax. We know what we’re doing on that one. We’ve practiced that for years.” Leinart claimed he made the decision to go for it. “I asked Reggie and he said, /\x27/Just do it.” I was going to do it anyways,” Leinart said. “You go for the win and be a hero or don’t make it and second-guess yourself. I just wanted to do it. “I don’t know, I was trying to make a play. The rest his history.” Whether it fooled the Irish is highly debatable. Leinart got hit at the 1, then received a push from behind by Bush and made it into the end zone with three seconds left. “Bush pushed me, I felt something,” Leinart said. “I made sure he got in there,” Bush added. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

When it was in the air, it was like two balls.” Jarrett plucked the correct one for a 61-yard reception that led to Matt Leinart’s 1-yard touchdown with three seconds left as No. 1-ranked USC preserved its title hopes with a come-from-behind 34-31 victory over No. 9-ranked Notre Dame on Saturday before 80,795 at Notre Dame Stadium. SOUTH BEND, Ind. — With USC’s national championship hopes nearly finished, wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett ran onto the field with a scratched cornea, seeing double, so two footballs came straight at him. On fourth-and-9 from the Trojans’ 26-yard line with 1:32 left, Jarrett saw a blurred vision of USC’s future. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “I told him, /\x27/There ain’t no way you’re going in there and he said he was OK,” USC coach Pete Carroll said. “The doctors said he could go in and I knew the game was down to that one play.” This was undoubtedly one of the best games of the storied rivalry, as the teams traded the lead three times in the final six minutes. The final drive broke the hearts of Notre Dame and its fans, which stormed the field prematurely only to see the Trojans pull out the victory. USC players were then overcome with emotion in the same spot where the Irish celebrated. “Honestly, I felt a miracle would happen,” USC wide receiver Steve Smith said. “Of course, there’s doubts in your mind. I would feel so stunned if we lost. I couldn’t even think about that.” Leinart, who struggled the entire game before his dramatic go-ahead touchdown, said, “That’s probably one of the greatest finishes ever. This game goes in history books as one of the greatest ever.” Bush was more emphatic, saying, “I think this win goes down as the No. 1 win all-time for USC against Notre Dame.” last_img read more

Missed marketing opportunities

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest There continues to be reports of corn ear tip back.  In my opinion social media is exaggerating this problem. There are definitely isolated cases, but it doesn’t seem to be a widespread problem. I suspect the people spreading these “reports” are likely unsold or long and hoping for a market rally.Some in the market point to record demand, which would theoretically lead to a market rally over time.  While this may be true, it will take nearly a year before the market will be impacted. There is still a question surrounding what will be done with the massive wheat supply.  Also, China’s economy continues to be a question mark going forward. They have been auctioning off state reserves and they have slowed their import of DDG’s. The DDG issue could create excessive U.S. inventories, displacing corn and meal in domestic feed usage.Missed OpportunitiesNearly every farmer (me included) was caught off guard when corn spiked then dropped over six weeks this summer. There was so much hype around a potential drought, few kept their eye on what was really happening in the country and what the crop looked like. Basically, the market was placing bets on the weather before anyone knew the answer. If it would have turned dry we would have certainly rallied to $5 per bushel. The problem was that nobody stopped to think what would happen if it did rain.This is an example of why farmers need to be scale-up sellers (selling a small percent of one’s production in increments as prices go higher) going into rallies, even if they aren’t sure of their potential production. The market can push prices to the extreme, both up and down, and farmers need to be ready to take advantage. What happened in the bean market doesn’t necessarily have to happen in the corn market each year.Unfortunately, many frustrated farmers are struggling to pick prices, believing corn should be worth more. I strongly urge farmers to be cautious right now. There is no reason the market has to rally until new year or beyond.For a 1.8 billion carryout (last year’s carryout) national yields would need to be well below current USDA estimates, likely sub 168 national average. Last year the market traded $3.70 for six months until the summer weather scare.If national yields hit slightly below USDA estimates (171 to 173) it would mean a 2 billion to 2.2 billion carryout. Logically, a $3.70+ rally in the next several months is unrealistic at this carryout level based upon last year’s numbers.If national yields would exceed current USDA estimates of 175, 2.4+ carryout is a possibility and $3 futures may be a reality.Many end users have learned that farmers are not willing sellers when the market is $.50-$1 under farmer breakeven points. Therefore, risk management suggests they purchase some corn at these levels, just in case. However, farmers have not been making a lot of money these past few years.  Holding and waiting out the bad times is getting harder and harder.  Cash flow and debt to asset ratios are not as strong. Some producers may be in real trouble and forced to sell grain sooner than they would like.I’m also concerned about where all this crop will go. It will likely be the third year in a row of a bumper crop and there is already massive wheat supply still stored. Basis may get ugly until after harvest is over. This may put the most pressure on the market once harvest starts.Market ActionIn late April I had a May futures position (sold at $9.20) that I rolled to the July for a 10-cent premium ($9.30). In late June I moved my futures position to the August at a 3.5 cent inverse/loss (now $9.265 against the Aug). Earlier this month I moved this position yet again to the September futures at a 15.5 cent loss/inverse. This means that my sale is now worth $9.11.I will roll it again to the November as a new crop sale in the next couple weeks. Currently, I could lose another 15 cents. I’m hoping that the large carryout weighs on the markets, but that may not happen.  Exports have been strong and demand for cash beans have kept the inverse in the market (which is not typical with large carryout).This just goes to show that sometimes trades don’t work out the way we hope they will.  Clearly beans have surprised everyone this year. This trade represents a small portion of my larger overall position.Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE.

Documentary: How One Datacenter Stood Up To Hurricane Sandy

Tags:#hurricane sandy#now#Peer 1 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy last Fall, one story that stood out in the IT community was that of besieged hosting provider Peer 1: both as a story of grit and determination and a canonical example of just how dicey disaster recovery can be.The problem sounds impossible: Peer 1’s generators on the roof of their 75 Broad Street location in lower Manhattan are normally fed fuel from basement storage tanks. When basement flooding knocked out the pumps to get the fuel up 18 stories to the roof, the only fuel left was five hours’ worth in the generator’s holding tanks.Faced with barely any fuel and no way to get fuel efficiently to the generators up top, Peer 1 staffers considered the inevitable: cleanly shutting down the servers that hosted services like Trello, FogBugz and Copilot.But Peer 1 and its datacenter tenants Fog Creek Software and Squarespace would refuse to give up, finally devising a bucket brigade to transport diesel fuel up 18 flights of stairs to the roof. For 72 hours.A new documentary short details the process of how Peer 1 dealt with the very real and very deadly storm.
