first_img Related Stories Dino Babers named Syracuse football’s next head coach5 quick facts about new Syracuse football head coach Dino Babers Dino Babers is the fifth Syracuse head coach since 1991. After Paul Pasqualoni held the position for 14 years, the Orange has cycled through three head coaches in the last 10. Greg Robinson failed in his four years, Doug Marrone raised the program’s profile from 2009-12 and Scott Shafer’s tenure slowly declined in his three seasons.Babers now inherits a team that’s missed two straight postseasons and only won seven of its last 24 games. Here’s a brief look at the tenure’s of each of the last four Syracuse football coaches.1991-2004 – Paul PasqualoniIn Pasqualoni’s 14 years as head coach, he led Syracuse to four Big East titles and a 6-3 record in nine bowl games. He led the Orange to two double-digit-win seasons in his first two years and another in 2001. He finished his tenure as the second-winningest coach in Syracuse history with 107 victories. Six of those wins, though, were vacated as part of the NCAA investigation into SU.Daily Orange File Photo2005-08 – Greg RobinsonAdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn two of Robinson’s four years, Syracuse suffered the only double-digit losing seasons in school history. He compiled 10 wins in four years, but five of those were vacated. Robinson was fired with two games left in the 2008 season. At his farewell press conference, he read excerpts from the children’s book, “The Little Engine That Could.”Daily Orange File Photo2009-12 – Doug MarroneMarrone’s tenure began with a lackluster four-win season, only one more victory than Robinson’s last year. But eight wins the next year was the most since 2001, and the Orange topped Kansas State in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. After a 5-7 2011 season, Marrone led SU to another Pinstripe Bowl win against West Virginia in 2012. He left Syracuse for the Buffalo Bills after the bowl win. Daily Orange File Photo2013-15 – Scott ShaferShafer led the Orange to a Texas Bowl victory against Minnesota in his first season as head coach. Syracuse only won seven games in his next two seasons, and Shafer was fired with one game left this season.

Why the Esports BAR is heading to Miami

first_imgThe Esports BAR is back this September, only this time around it’s heading Stateside. Reed MIDEM has chosen Miami as the host city for the second coming of the networking focused event for esports organisations, game publishers, brands and media.The Cannes edition, which took place back in February and which you can read our write up of here, was a major success with a 96% satisfaction rate amongst attendees. Esports BAR Miami will follow up with the same format; a capped event with pre-selected attendees only, a major focus on pre-scheduled one to one meetings, and some knowledge sharing sessions to boot. Reed MIDEM’s Stephane Gambetta told Esports Insider: “Reed MIDEM aims to accompany the strategic development of this rapidly-evolving industry.  The purpose is to provide the most productive esports matchmaking experience possible, and better understand the needs of the sector.“We’re supported by an advisory team of leading esports professionals, which includes Matthieu Dallon, Esport Strategy Director, Webedia and President, France eSports ; Sidney Kim, CEO of Rox Tigers and ROX Orcas OverWatch Team ; Ralf Reichert, CEO of ESL ;  Mike Sepso, Senior VP Activision Blizzard ; Stuart Saw, Twitch’s Director of Esports Strategy ; Wouter Sleijffers, CEO of Fnatic and Arnd Benninghoff, EVP, MTG and CEO of MTGx Venture and Todd Sitrin, SVP & GM Competitive Gaming, EA. They’ll all be in Miami!”Whilst there are a number of esports business conferences now in existence, the Esports BAR is positioning itself as a move away from these. Gambetta explained: “Esports BAR is a ‘by invitation’ event: it’s selection process is what makes Esports BAR unique, as it allows us to bring together over 100 people who will benefit most from meeting each other.“Aside from the business insights sessions and a full programme of networking events, Esports BAR is centered around the 1-to-1 summit offering leading executives a full diary of guaranteed pre-scheduled meetings on site. What set the inaugural Esports BAR apart from other esports events was the high quality of professionals gathered in one place, dedicated to growing esports into the entertainment of the future.”So after everyone had such a great time in Cannes, why Miami? Gambetta stated: “The U.S. is definitely one of the leading regions in esports; it’s constantly generating growing revenues from online advertising, sponsorships, media rights, merchandise, tickets, and additional publisher investment.“Esports BAR heads to Miami to be closer to the main actors of the esports industry: designed as a global event bringing together executives from more than 20 countries active in the worldwide esports industry, the upcoming edition of Esports BAR is expected .to attract a particularly strong participation from the United States, Latin America and Canada.”Those interested in attending the Esports BAR Miami (September 18-20) can apply here.Disclaimer: Esports Insider is an official media partner of the Esports BARlast_img read more

Huskies one win away from NWJHL Championship after 7-2 win over Navs

Puck drop at the Baytex Energy Centre is at 8:00 p.m. with the game being streamed on the Huskies’ Ustream page: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/huskies-hockey FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Fort St. John Huskies are just one win away from winning the NWJHL playoffs after thoroughly whooping the North Peace Navigators on home ice Sunday evening.The Huskies opened the scoring just over three minutes into the first period when Darion Fay wired a shot past the Navs’ netminder Ryan Noble on the powerplay assisted by Jared Loewen. A minute and thirty-three seconds later it was 2-0 Fort St. John courtesy of a goal by Gary Loewen. Geoff Dick tallied the lone helper on Loewen’s goal, his first of three assists in the game. Both teams recorded 12 shots on goal in the first period.The Huskies maintained control of the game into the second frame. Nolan Legace added some more insurance for the Pups 3:07 after the first intermission, assisted by Dick. The Navs would finally break Zak Babin’s shutout bid just over five minutes later, but Fort St. John wouldn’t go away. Jacob Lang scored unassisted 41 seconds later to regain the Huskies’ three-goal lead. An interference penalty by Legace ended up resulting in another goal for North Peace with just under seven and a half minutes left in the frame. The team from Peace River outshot the Huskies 14-8 in the second period.- Advertisement -In the third, the Huskies maintained their composure and the presence in the driver’s seat. Lang scored his second of the night just 48 seconds into the third on a give-and-go feed from Matthew Apsassin to make it 5-2 for the Huskies. Just over three minutes later it was 6-2 for the Pups after Legace scored his second, assisted by Dick and Gary Loewen. That goal ended up being the last for Navs’ goalie Noble, who was pulled in favour of backup Xavier Lavoie.The Huskies would keep up their physical play through the rest of the game, which would get to the Navs late in the third. While forechecking in the North Peace zone with just over four minutes left, Joel Bourgeois was dealt a cross-check to the back of the neck into the boards by North Peace defenseman Sam Needham. Needham was given a five minute major for Checking to the Head and an automatic Game Misconduct, meaning he’ll be sitting for the next game. Fort St. John’s Darion Fay was handed a Roughing minor and a 10-minute Misconduct penalty for jumping in to back his teammate up in the ensuing scrum.After their minor penalty expired, the Huskies kept up pressure with the man advantage for the rest of the game. Jeridyn Loewen sealed the deal with six seconds left, scoring on the powerplay assisted by brothers Jacob and Jarod Lang. Though North Peace would outshoot Fort St. John 39-37, Zak Babin only let in two of those shots and backstopped the Huskies to the 7-2 victory.Advertisementlast_img read more
