Badgers topple Phoenix

first_imgERIN KEEFFE/Herald photoIn dominating fashion, the Wisconsin men’s soccer team (7-10-0, 1-4-0 Big Ten) defeated in-state rival UW-Green Bay (8-9-0, 3-4-0 Horizon) by a score of 3-0 Wednesday night in its final home match of the season at the McClimon Soccer Complex.Despite suffering a goal-scoring drought earlier in the season when it tallied only one strike in five games, the team has rallied back as of late, scoring 13 goals in its past five matches.”It feels great for us to come away with a good win and score some goals,” head coach Jeff Rohrman said. “In the last five games, we’ve been able to put two or three goals in, so it’s been great for the guys to see that we can get over that hump and we can put the ball in the net. I’m really happy for that.”Wisconsin took a very early lead in only the second minute of play following a beautiful through ball by sophomore Christopher Ede into the path of a streaking Victor Diaz. Instead of taking a shot, Diaz unselfishly threaded the needle into junior William Bagayoko’s run, who calmly buried his shot into the left side of the goal.Just 10 minutes later, the Badgers went up 2-0 on the Phoenix with a ripped shot by Diaz from 20 yards out into the lower-left corner of the net. Assisting on the goal was Ede again, bringing his total on the season to three. Diaz’s strike brought his team-leading goal tally to six on the year.”Victor was feeling it tonight,” Rohrman said of the Spaniard’s performance. “He was hitting the ball well, and he was showing great vision on his part. He was also showing some selfless play by playing it back across for William for the first goal. Victor had great composure finishing [his goal] off and played well for us tonight.”UW-Green Bay’s best chance in the first half came in the fifth minute, when there was a miscommunication between Wisconsin defender Aaron Hohlbein and Badger goalkeeper Jake Settle. As Hohlbein tried to head the ball back to Settle, the ball floated over Settle’s head, glazing the post before going out of bounds for a corner kick.In the second half, the Badgers started off strong again, with Bagayoko grabbing his second goal of the match following some cheeky ball movement by his teammates. After Diaz sent a slicing pass to Erik Ortega, the sophomore laid the ball off to Bagayoko, who slotted it through the outstretched hands of UW-GB keeper Adam Stikl into the back of the net.”My mind pretty much just went blank,” Bagayoko said of his goals. “I was in good position for both [goals] — in both of them, the ball was coming to my right foot, so I just put it up and put it in.”After losing 2-0 to UW-Milwaukee a month ago, Wisconsin has since enjoyed a pair of 3-0 victories against Marquette University and UW-Green Bay in the remainder of its in-state matches.”It feels good to win in your state,” Bagayoko said. “We had a slip-up against UW-M and that was unfortunate, but to get good results against Marquette and UW-Green Bay is good for us.”Though Wisconsin was out-shot 11 to 10 and had two fewer corner kicks than UW-Green Bay, the Badgers made the most out of their opportunities by peppering the Phoenix goal and converting their chances. “Our play was OK tonight,” Rohrman said. “Thank goodness that we were efficient with our chances — we had 10 shots, and nine were on goal. In terms of quality of play, it was just an average night for us, but we made the most of our shots. We got them on goal and did well finishing them.”Wisconsin closes out its Big Ten season and regular season next Sunday against Northwestern before heading to the Big Ten tournament Nov. 10.last_img read more

How to do a virtual NFL training camp tour during pandemic

first_img FOLLOW US The idea of a training camp media tour is simple: go, interview, enlighten your audience.It doesn’t work quite that way in a pandemic.So SiriusXM NFL Radio is adjusting. Rather than sitting next to Tom Brady in Tampa or Jon Gruden in Las Vegas, everything is being done remotely. For more than a dozen hosts, a handful of producers and myriad technicians charged with ensuring programming hits the air, the goal is to dig deep into all 32 teams without ever setting foot on franchise soil.And while it’s not exactly like what NFL clubs are going through preparing for a season of uncertainty, it’s a major task.So why do it?“I always look at it as a challenge, it fires up your juices,” says Nick Pavlatos, the SiriusXM channel’s senior director of programming. “I remember when we had the lockout in 2011, I had a week or two to try to schedule a training camp tour. There was talk of doing only half of them. I said, `No, our listeners expect all 32.’“I never thought we weren’t going to be able to do it this year.”It’s more than the challenge, too, says Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s senior vice president of sports programming.“That we are able to do camp shows, there’s still so much we get out of talking to the player and coaches, and asking the right questions,” Cohen explains, “and getting the information from the teams and imparting that wisdom to our listening base. So it’s very important to find out firsthand what is going on with the teams. There’s so much to cover, and this year more so; our camp tour is invaluable in terms of doing that preparation for the season.”Normally, SiriusXM crews travel all over the map to places as rural as Latrobe, Pennsylvania and as cosmopolitan as Houston. Former NFL executive Pat Kirwan, who’s been hosting on the camp tours since they began in 2005, fondly (sort of) recalls the days of planes, trains and automobiles. More rewarding have been the spoils of being at those camps.There’s no true substitute for face-to-face communications.“There is a lot of trust by the team connected with being a successful camp tour,” says Kirwan, who works with former NFL quarterback Jim Miller on the station’s flagship show, “Movin’ The Chains.”“Over time I have been able to gain the confidence of coaches that when I see them and talk about something I have an opinion on, they know it won’t be shared with other teams and not be broken down to the level of giving away privileged information. They trust Jim and me. Even coach Belichick makes sure we have the best perch in town to watch practice. He will sit with us and if we keep asking football questions, he will answer them.”That alone is newsworthy.So was getting Bill Belichick’s former quarterback on the air for 20 minutes during the Buccaneers tour program. No, Kirwan and Miller were not sitting next to the six-time Super Bowl winner. Indeed, no one from SiriusXM was at Bucs camp, but through the work of the technical staff of Doug Mortman, VP of programming operations, all the necessary equipment was there. As well as at every other camp stop.In some ways, that was the biggest hurdle to leap over.“We sent them a high-quality mic to hook to the computer, and it will sound much better,” Pavlatos says. “We also supplied a shotgun mic — an extended mic that can be further away and still pick up the audio. That’s for health considerations; we don’t want guests sharing a mic that is close to them. They don’t have to get close to the mic now.“We also sent 10 to 15 individual earbuds for the players to keep or discard when they are done. These are considerations we thought about because these teams are going out of their way to help us. So we want to make it as easy as possible for them.”Making it easier with Brady was that Miller is his former backup in New England, and Kirwan has done many programs with Brady — including once at an eight-hour auto show.“With Brady, I brought up the question not so much with the Xs and Os, but a more general question because we know Tom is relentless on that stuff,” Miller says. “Now it is much more about getting to know his teammates. And in limited practices. Tom knows it’s not going to be pretty all the time. He’d already thrown four picks, one a pick-6, in practice, and that bothers Tom.“The practices are 20 percent over and you never get that back.”Some day, camp tours for all broadcasters and writers will come back. Maybe not entirely in the same form, but in-person and in-depth.Though they believe the current format has worked well and the information steadily has flowed to listeners, Kirwan and Miller can’t wait to be in Latrobe or Las Vegas.“A lot of coaches like when Jimmy and I come, and they let us on the field literally in the middle of the drills,” Kirwan says. “They want us there and they even ask us what we think of what we are watching.”Yep, even Belichick.
