Sarri: Ranieri sacking makes derby tougher for Chelsea

We need another good performance.”Sarri said Ranieri, who managed Chelsea from September 2000 to May 2004, faced a “difficult situation from the beginning” at Fulham.“I am really very sorry but I know very well his character so I know we will see him very soon,” Sarri added.“It is not easy. He was unlucky. But he is very strong and in a few days he will be able to think to the future.”Chelsea are sixth in the table, seven points from third-placed Tottenham.

Source: UK to hire WVU’s Dawson as coordinator

first_imgLEXINGTON, Ky. –Mark Stoops has his man. The University of Kentucky football coach has made an offer to West Virginia offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson, who is expected to accept the same position with the Wildcats, according to a source familiar with the situation.An official announcement cannot be made until Friday, per state hiring regulations, but Dawson will carry on the “Air Raid” offense installed the last two seasons by Neal Brown, who left UK after this season to become head coach at Troy. The 37-year-old Dawson worked under former Cats coach Hal Mumme, the godfather of that pass-happy spread attack, at both Southeastern Louisiana in 2003-04 and New Mexico State in 2005.“He’s original Air Raid,” the source said of Dawson, adding that it was important for Stoops “to keep continuity and verbiage and not take a step back after the last two years.” EARLIER: UK’s Neal Brown announced as Troy head coachThe Mountaineers, whose head coach Dana Holgorsen helped the Air Raid fly at Texas Tech, Houston and Oklahoma State, ranked ninth nationally in passing offense, 11th in total offense and 38th in scoring offense this season. Dawson has been at WVU since 2011 and the offensive coordinator the last three seasons.Before that, he ran a Stephen F. Austin offense that ranked No. 1 in the Football Championship Subdivision in 2009 and 2010 – and ranked third in 2008, his first season in charge. What especially appealed to Stoops about Dawson, the source said, is that he has “evolved” in the system to include more balance.The Mountaineers ranked 44th nationally in rushing this season at 187.5 yards per game on the ground – to go with an average 314.6 passing yards. Stoops “still wanted to be exciting, unique, score points,” the source said, “but you have to be physical and run the ball in this league.”Stoops certainly had a solid reference at his disposal: Dawson and West Virginia put up 513 yards (376 passing) and 33 points this season on Oklahoma, where Stoops’ brothers Bob and Mike are the head coach and defensive coordinator.Also of note, Dawson appears to be a solid recruiter and Kentucky could have interest in a couple of players committed to the Mountaineers. Dawson is listed in the Rivals.com database as the lead recruiter for WVU pledge David Sills, a four-star quarterback from Maryland, and Cincinnati native David Long, who is rated the No. 21 inside linebacker recruit in the country.Just as offensive coordinator was until Wednesday, linebacker is a position of need for the Cats.Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361.

All but four (or five?) NFL teams followed this in 2017. Steelers, Giants, Broncos, Browns and maybe the Bengals. Although one could argue that their helmet is half orange and half black.

One question that has been bugging me is how to define what make a good or bad design. Specifically, what are the aesthetic maxims that any designer ought to follow to make a “football uniform” or “baseball uniform” or “hockey uniform.” Given those rules, can they be bent or broken in certain scenarios?  SportsLogos.Net — The ONLY time the jersey and pants in football should be the same color is when they are both white. Everything else looks “bush league” . Members Generally I think this is a good rule but I’d make an exception for the gold pants Chargers. 262 posts 6 1,304 3 This is interesting. The only thing I’m overly picky about is when football teams have a white helmet. White helmets don’t work unless they are worn with white pants and/or a white jersey. Examples I dislike include Wyoming W/B/Y and the Tennessee Titans old W/N/C. I can’t stand that look of three different colors with the lightest being the helmet. It just looks unbalanced. On the other side, when Nebraska goes W/R/W or the Jets go W/G/W I’m perfectly fine with it. This is really the only thing I don’t have a single time there’s an exception to my rule, almost everything else I prefer has one or more exceptions to it.  Posted April 26, 2018 2,565 posts 11 minutes ago, VDizzle12 said: five boroughs, one City.

The only thing I’m overly picky about is when football teams have a white helmet. White helmets don’t work unless they are worn with white pants and/or a white jersey. Examples I dislike include Wyoming W/B/Y and the Tennessee Titans old W/N/C. I can’t stand that look of three different colors with the lightest being the helmet. It just looks unbalanced. On the other side, when Nebraska goes W/R/W or the Jets go W/G/W I’m perfectly fine with it. This is really the only thing I don’t have a single time there’s an exception to my rule, almost everything else I prefer has one or more exceptions to it.

So for example a baseball uniform in my mind, follows the following rules: Share this post jn8 2 Carolingian Steamroller Competent Goofball Dad Carolingian Steamroller Location:Illinois This is interesting.

That’s why I don’t really like those yellow pants the Chargers used to wear. They would need to be paired with a blue helmet, (which they did and it looked amazing) or with a yellow one to match the pants.

The squatchee on the cap should match the brim when the brim is a different color from the crown. If the brim is the same color as the crown, the squatchee can be any color.  Or: 548 Posted April 26, 2018 B-Rich The squatchee on the cap should match the brim when the brim is a different color from the crown.

All but four (or five?) NFL teams followed this in 2017. Steelers, Giants, Broncos, Browns and maybe the Bengals. Although one could argue that their helmet is half orange and half black. Seems like when two elements of the uniform match, it creates a nice color balance. Which is one reason I think the Jets, Nebraska, etc look good. 2,559 The socks contrasting with the pants is an absolute of good design. Any design that fails to show off the knickers get a demerit.  Members Link to post Softball tops should generally be worn with a cap of the same or darker color.  I don’t care much for uni rules Carolingian Steamroller I know someone has said it before, but in baseball, if the cap has a contrasting brim, the squatchee should match the brim. ALWAYS, with no exceptions. 4 Link to post 22,644 0 Those may be well-balanced only because they all involve white pants.  Try another color, and the whole thing comes crashing down. 2 16 hours ago, Carolingian Steamroller said: Share on other sites Link to post 1 Link to post Edited April 26, 2018 by jn8 1 hour ago, Carolingian Steamroller said: 3 2 Forums Home Share on other sites Also the helmet, jersey, and pants should not be three different colors.  It just looks disorganized that way.
