UK’s Mosier steps up when needed

first_imgLEXINGTON, Ky. – When Kentucky lost senior left tackle Jordan Swindle on the first drive against Missouri with a groin injury, offensive line coach John Schlarman had few options for to replace him.Cole Mosier committed to the University of Kentucky as a preferred walk-on to play football.Cole Mosier committed to the University of Kentucky as a preferred walk-on to play football.Freshman tackle George Asafo-Adjei and senior left guard Zach West were battling minor injuries. Sophomores Nick Haynes and Kyle Meadows were already in the game at left guard and right tackle respectively.With his options limited, Schlarman turned to the line’s Mr. Versatility, sophomore Cole Mosier.“He was the one that was healthy,” Mosier said. “It was a pretty easy decision.”Mosier, a former walk-on who earned a scholarship before the season, spent most of his redshirt freshman year bouncing between left guard and right guard. During spring practice he moved to right tackle to compete with Meadows and Asafo-Adjei for the starting job, but his first snaps at left tackle came in practice before the Missouri game.“Cole’s a guy I’ve moved around to every position – except center,” Schlarman said. “He’s a guy (who if) you ask him to do something, he’ll do it.”Mosier did not exactly ease into playing left tackle. Against Missouri, he was frequently matched up in one-on-one situations with defensive end Charles Harris, who leads the SEC in tackles for loss.He was flagged for a hold during his first drive that negated a 48-yard reception, but was able to bounce back to hold his own against the All-SEC contender.“I thought I was definitely good,” Mosier said. “We learned the scouting report. I paid attention to what he did and what he likes to do and my technique put me in the right position.”With Kentucky facing third-and-10 at the Missouri 29-yard line in the fourth quarter, Harris tried a spin move to reach quarterback Patrick Towles in the backfield, but Mosier adjusted and kept Harris from the pocket. Towles completed a 24-yard pass to Garrett Johnson for a first down, and one play later found Dorian Baker in the end zone to make it a two-score game.“If he don’t block him then we don’t get it off,” UK offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson said. “So, he rushed and did a spin move inside, and he just stoned him. It gave us time to get the ball off, which is huge.”Swindle could return to the starting lineup against Eastern Kentucky, but the Kentucky coaches know Mosier can fill in if needed.“He held up very well,” UK head coach Mark Stoops said. “He was one of the players of the game for us within our team and really graded out well and performed well and battled hard.”Email Jon Hale at jahale@courier-journal.com .

Game Recap | Vandy 21, Kentucky 17

first_imgKentucky Wildcats quarterbacks Patrick Towles (14), Drew Barker (7), Reese Phillips (12) took to the field during the first half the annual Blue White spring football game at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky. April 26, 2014Kentucky Wildcats quarterbacks Patrick Towles (14), Drew Barker (7), Reese Phillips (12) took to the field during the first half the annual Blue White spring football game at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky. April 26, 2014FINAL: Vanderbilt 21, Kentucky 17NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Mark Stoops era at Kentucky has a new low point after a 21-17 loss to Vanderbilt.Kentucky failed to score twice in the first half on drives that saw them handed a first-and-goal play, threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown and gave up a score on a trick play as the Commodores earned just their second Southeastern Conference win in the last two seasons.A comedy of errors prevented Kentucky from control of the game in the first half.On Kentucky’s first drive three dropped passes, including one near the goal line by junior wide receiver Garrett Johnson forced the Wildcats to settle for a 38-yard Austin MacGinnis field goal.Following a Vanderbilt fumble at its own 39-yard line, UK sophomore running back Stanley “Boom” Williams ripped off a 38-yard gain to set up first-and-goal at the 1-yard line, but Kentucky was unable to score on four consecutive plays from the spot.On Kentucky’s next drive, Williams fumbled a second-down carry at the Kentucky 4-yard line. Vanderbilt took the lead on the next play on a 4-yard pass from Kyle Shurmur to fullback/tight end Kyle Anderson.Vanderbilt running back Darrius Sims fumbled a punt on the third play of the second quarter to set up a first-and-goal at the 3-yard line for Kentucky. UK quarterback Patrick Towles appeared to find Johnson for a touchdown pass in the back of the end zone on the first play of the drive, but an official overturned the original call on the field, ruling Johnson had not come down inbounds with the ball. On the next play, Towles threw an interception to safety Oren Burks in the corner of the end zone.Kentucky fans hoping for a quarterback change finally got their wish on the Wildcats’ next drive with redshirt freshman Drew Barker taking over the reins of the offense. Barker immediately hit sophomore wide receiver Jeff Badet for a 42-yard gain then found junior wide receiver Ryan Timmons for a 7-yard touchdown pass four plays later to give Kentucky a 10-7 lead.Barker’s second drive was not as successful as his third-down pass was intercepted by Burks and returned 30 yards for a touchdown to give Vanderbilt a 14-10 lead.With just less than four minutes left in the first half, Stoops elected to try and convert a fourth-and-one at the Vanderbilt 49-yard line, but Barker threw well past junior wide receiver Blake Bone to give the Commodores the ball at midfield.Following a Vanderbilt timeout with 43 second left on the clock, the Commodores hit Kentucky on a trick play in which wide receiver Caleb Scott was left along on the sideline after appearing to run off the field from the Vanderbilt huddle. Shurmur found an uncovered Scott for a 37-yard touchdown pass to give the Vanderbilt a 21-10 lead.A 91-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter, highlighted by a 66-yard Boom Williams run, brought Kentucky within one score, but the Wildcats were unable to finish the comeback.— Jon HaleGame Recap1:52 4Q: That’ll do it. Kentucky burned its timeouts on various messes earlier in this half and the Commodores powered ahead for the one yard they needed on third-and-1 with two minutes to go. Cats headed for five consecutive losses and will need to beat Charlotte and Louisville at home the next two weeks to reach a bowl game. At this point, almost no one would bet on that happening.4:40 4Q: Dorian Baker with a huge drop (with the exception of one catch and tough run, he’s let down UK at every turn today) on third-and-3. On the Cats’ punt, another special-teams penalty. Vandy ball at the Kentucky 45. Hope slipping away for Stoops and Co.5:30 4Q: UK defense forces a three-and-out after Landon Foster’s punt was blocked to give Vanderbilt the ball in Kentucky territory. UK has the ball down four points with 5:30 left at the UK 13-yard line.6:56 4Q: Offense lets the Cats down with a quick three-and-out, and then special teams lets the team down even more. Blocked punt. Vandy ball at UK’s 38-yard line. This sure isn’t the defense’s fault. The Commodores had to go four yards for their first touchdown, got the second on a pick-six and the third on a crazy trick play. Cats have allowed just 271 yards.8:54 4Q: Jason Hatcher, finally healthy, is playing a terrific game. Another tackle for loss and the Cats force a quick three-and-out, get another shot at taking the lead. Running out of time in a game that is critical to their bowl hopes. Defense playing great, as the Commodores’ last five possessions ended with four punts and a turnover on downs. Hatcher has five tackles, two for loss.10:21 4Q: Yet another wasted opportunity and poor clock management. Towles hit Dorian Baker, who fought to finish a 19-yard play, then Kemp broke loose for 23 more before UK’s latest drive stalled at Vanderbilt’s 17. From there, the Cats took an inexplicable delay-of-game penalty and after backing up five more yards, Austin MacGinnis narrowly missed a 37-yard field goal wide left. That would’ve gotten Kentucky within a single point.END THIRD: Vanderbilt 21, Kentucky 17The Wildcats won the quarter, scoring the period’s only points thanks a 67-yard run by Williams that set up a 2-yard touchdown run by fellow tailback Jojo Kemp to give UK new life. The Cats, whose defense forced two punts and a turnover on downs in the third quarter, went back to Towles at quarterback. After starting 3 of 3 for 57 yards and a touchdown, Barker completed just two of his next five passes (for three yards) and threw a pick-six.Vanderbilt 21, Kentucky 17 (1:06 3Q): Kentucky needed that spark, a 67-yard run by Boom Williams, sprung by left tackle Jordan Swindle. Incredibly, Vanderbilt chased him down at its 7, but two Jojo Kemp carries from there finished it off. The Cats have life. The bad news: Swindle was hurt on the 2-yard TD run.2:45 3Q: Another big play by Hatcher and Edwards, who combined for a third-down stop to force another Vanderbilt punt. The defense is doing its job. Once again, it’s on a sputtering offense to contribute. Patrick Towles still in at QB.7:31 3Q: Kentucky went back to Patrick Towles on that series, searching for a spark yet again, and it didn’t work. Incomplete, 6-yard pass, incomplete, punt. Also: Drew Barker does not look pleased on the sideline.8:30 3Q: Huge stand for UK’s defense after the Commodores drove to the Cats’ 26-yard line. Jason Hatcher (suspended to start the season, injured more recently) came up with his first big play in a good while, dropping a Vandy runner for a 3-yard loss on third down. The ‘Dores went for it on fourth and couldn’t connect on a throw to the end zone. A score there would’ve just about sealed the Wildcats’ fate.12:20 3Q: Three-and-out for UK offense to open the third quarter. Barker overthrew Jeff Badet on third down, Jojo Kemp was stopped at the line of scrimmage on second down and Barker’s scramble was stopped five yards short of a first down on third down. Another muffed punt by Vanderbilt at the Vandy 36-yard line, but this time the Commodores recover to retain possession.13:27, 3Q: Mike Edwards saved a long gain from Vanderbilt as he hit Trent Sherfield down the sideline to force an incompletion on what would have given the Commodores the ball in the red zone. Instead, Vanderbilt opens the second half with a punt. Drew Barker back at quarterback.HALFTIME: Vanderbilt 21, Kentucky 10The Wildcats had roughly two minutes of hope in the second quarter. After Towles threw an interception in the end zone – off a UK fumble recovery at the Vanderbilt 3-yard line – redshirt freshman Drew Barker got the nod. He uncorked a 41-yard completion on his first attempt and threw a go-ahead touchdown on his third. But on his second series, Barker threw a pick-six. Then the Cats failed on third- and fourth-and-1 from the Commodores’ 49-yard line just before halftime. Vandy made them play with a trick play, hiding a receiver on the sideline out of a huddle and hitting him (he was completely uncovered) for a 37-yard touchdown with 37 second left in the half.Vanderbilt 21, Kentucky 10 (0:37 2Q): Disaster for the Cats right before halftime. Vanderbilt got sneaky, hid receiver Caleb Scott on the sideline after a huddle and UK left him completely uncovered. The result? A walk-in, 37-yard touchdown. Kentucky once again looks like a disorganized mess.1:15 2Q: Despite a nice scramble by Barker to convert a third-and-17, the Cats’ offense stalled at Vanderbilt’s 49-yard line. Mikel Horton was stuffed on third-and-1 and then Barker, somewhat inexplicably, took a deep shot on fourth-and-1. So the Commodores need just a few yards to score right before halftime. We’ve seen this movie.Vanderbilt 14, Kentucky 10 (5:10 2Q): Awful sequence for the Cats, as wide receiver Alex Montgomery, whose road back from an ACL injury has been long and bumpy, crumpled as he tried to get down the field to deliver a block on a punt return. He had to be helped off the field. Moments later, Drew Barker’s breakout day took a hit when he threw a pick-six that Vanderbilt returned 30 yards to retake the lead.Kentucky 10, Vanderbilt 7 (10:23 2Q): So the Drew Barker Era (if that’s what we’re seeing here) is off to a great start. After the defense forced a three-and-out, UK went to the redshirt freshman over interception-prone Towles, and he connected with Jeff Badet for a 41-yard completion on his first pass. Then an 8-yard strike, then a 13-yard Williams run, and finally a 7-yard touchdown strike to Ryan Timmons. That was mighty impressive.13:48 2Q: Make it FOUR turnovers (two each) in the first 17 minutes of play. Towles hit Johnson in the back of the end zone on first down, but he was just out of bounds. Next play, a fade to Dorian Baker, tipped and then picked off by Vanderbilt. Two trips inside the Commodores’ 5-yard line and zero points for Kentucky.14:00 2Q: Apparently the football is a hot potato today in Nashville. Freshman safety Mike Edwards forced a fumble on Vanderbilt’s latest punt return – third fumble of the day – and fellow rookie Jordan Jones jumped on it at the Commodores’ 3-yard line. Now … can Kentucky get a touchdown out of this?13:48 1Q: Make it FOUR turnovers (two each) in the first 17 minutes of play. Towles hit Johnson in the back of the end zone on first down, but he was just out of bounds. Next play, a fade to Dorian Baker, tipped and then picked off by Vanderbilt. Two trips inside the Commodores’ 5-yard line and zero points for Kentucky.14:00 1Q: Apparently the football is a hot potato today in Nashville. Freshman safety Mike Edwards forced a fumble on Vanderbilt’s latest punt return – third fumble of the day – and fellow rookie Jordan Jones jumped on it at the Commodores’ 3-yard line. Now … can Kentucky get a touchdown out of this?END FIRST: Vanderbilt, Kentucky 3The Wildcats ended the first 15 minutes wondering what might’ve been. On a 14-play opening field-goal drive, quarterback Patrick Towles saw two deep balls (both potential touchdowns) sail through receivers’ hands. Then, after linebacker Khalid Henderson pounced on a fumble at Vanderbilt’s 39-yard line and running back Stanley “Boom” Williams ripped off 38-yard run, UK somehow failed to score on four tries from the 1. To top it off, the Cats gift-wrapped a touchdown for the Commodores when Williams fumbled at his own 4-yard line. The home team needed one play to score from there, on a TD toss to the tight end. Plagued by drops, Towles was 5 of 14 for 22 yards in the first quarter, where Kentucky outgained Vanderbilt 68 yards to 64.Vanderbilt 7, Kentucky 3 (0:36 1Q): Disaster strikes. After their defense forced a punt, the Cats’ offense gave it right back. Williams, dancing around and looking for room to run, fumbled and Vanderbilt recovered at UK’s 4-yard line. The Commodores needed just one play to toss a touchdown to their tight end. SEC Network says that’s Vandy’s first touchdown in the first quarter since Nov. 8 last year. Brutal.4:51 1Q: Incredibly, Kentucky can’t make Vanderbilt pay for that turnover, even after Boom Williams, playing with a brace on his injured right elbow, ripped off a 38-yard run to the 1. From there Williams was stuffed, Towles sailed a pass out of the end zone, Williams was stuffed and Towles was driven back on a fourth-down try. Not a good look for the offense and a huge missed opportunity.6:17 1Q: Big swing there, and senior linebacker Khalid Henderson’s late-season resurgence continues. The once-benched veteran has fought to get his spot back and keeps making big plays, that time forcing and recovering a fumble at the Vanderbilt 39.7:05 1Q: Cats returned the favor three with a three-and-out. Good news: punter Landon Foster escaped disaster as Vandy went all out to block that kick. Of note: Towles has already run it twice for 10 yards in two series. He was a frequent runner last season, almost not at all this year. Perhaps that’s a significant wrinkle in today’s game plan.8:18 1Q: Make no mistake, the Commodores’ offense stinks. Still, an opening three-and-out is good for a Kentucky defense that has been lit up the last few weeks.Kentucky 3, Vanderbilt 0 (10:22 1Q): Cats get a 39-yard opening kickoff return from freshman tailback Sihiem King (seems like he’ll eventually break one), moved the chains with a 10-yard Boom Williams run on a third-and-5, then again with 2-yard Mikel Horton rumble on fourth-and-1 and once more on a third-down scramble and 8-yard dart from Towles to tight end C.J. Conrad. But the drive finally stalled and UK settled for a 39-yard Austin MacGinnis field goal. Towles looked mostly sharp but saw Ryan Timmons drop a perfect deep ball and Garrett Johnson let a potential touchdown toss sail through his hands. After their recent offensive struggles, though, Kentucky will take a 14-play opening drive and points against a top-25 defense.* Towles starts, but Barker could play. Stoops told SEC Network just before kickoff that junior Patrick Towles will start today but redshirt freshman Drew Barker is “ready to go.” Imagine it’ll be a quick hook if Towles struggles against a stout Vanderbilt defense.[tweet https://twitter.com/ukstoopstroops/status/665589270095273985%5Dlast_img read more

See the first photo of Ruby Rose as Batwoman

first_imgJSquared Photography/The CW — © 2018 The CW Network, LLC. All rights reserved (LOS ANGELES) — The CW has released its first look of Ruby Rose as Batwoman.In the photo, the Aussie actress sports long, bright red hair and a black-and-red batsuit. She has her arms outstretched revealing her cape against the backdrop of city skyscrapers. The bat signal can be seen in the distance.Rose will make her debut as the superhero in an Arrowverse crossover event on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m. ET, before heading up her own show. The actress and model was cast as the superhero back in August, making her the first openly gay lead in a live-action superhero show. But the news was met with some backlash that forced her to take a break from Twitter.Some critics argued Rose wasn’t “gay enough” to play Batwoman — who’s a lesbian in the comics — while others argued that she isn’t Jewish, like the character. Still others questioned whether she was a good enough actress to play the role.“When women and when minorities join forces we are unstoppable… when we tear each other down it’s much more hurtful than from any group. But hey/ love a challenge I just wish women and the LGBT community supported each other more,” Rose wrote before deactivating her Twitter.She concluded, “If you need me, I’ll be on my Bat Phone.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Peter Dinklage helped Jamie Dornan run lines for ‘Fifty Shades Freed’

first_imgScott Kowalchyk/CBS(NEW YORK) — Well, this is quite the visual. On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday night, Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage said he helped Jamie Dornan practice his lines for Fifty Shades Freed.Dinklage said he helped Dornan rehearse for the erotic drama in their dressing room while the two were shooting the new film My Dinner with Hervé, in which they both star.“I read some of the screenplay, though, in our dressing room,” Dinklage said. “I went in, he had to do some reshoots for Fifty Shades and I would help him out learning lines.”He added, “I would read the Dakota Johnson parts. I was just helping a friend learn lines. I nailed it. I really did.”While Colbert tried to compare the intense fan bases of both Game of Thrones and Fifty Shades, Dinklage said they are “very different.”“I think Game of Thrones fans would take issue with comparing the two because Game of Thrones fans are very specific and lovely,” he said. “Fifty Shades fans have issues. It’s all suppressed issues, I think.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Suarez fires Liverpool as Arsenal, Chelsea, City win

first_imgBy Toby DavisLiverpool’s Luis Suarez showed his devastating ability to act as a one-man wrecking ball with four goals in a 5-1 demolition of Norwich City as Arsenal’s forgotten man Nicklas Bendtner jogged a few memories in the Premier League on Wednesday.Suarez delivered a dazzling collection of goal-of-the-season contenders at Anfield and Bendtner scored two minutes into his first start in more than two years to help the Premier League leaders beat Hull City 2-0.Second-placed Chelsea and Manchester City in third came through tight tussles to beat Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion, but champions Manchester United lost 1-0 at home to Everton to slip 12 points behind the leaders.While the pressure on United manager David Moyes increased, Tottenham Hotspur eased the stress on boss Andre Villas-Boas by coming from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 in their manager Rene Meulensteen’s first game in charge.Arsenal, with 34 points, stayed four points clear of Chelsea at the top of the table, with Manchester City two adrift in third and Liverpool a point further back in fourth, ahead of Everton on goal difference.Tottenham moved up to sixth on 24 and Manchester United dropped to ninth.Suarez must wish he could play Norwich every week, a team against whom he has now scored 11 goals in his last four Premier League games.He grabbed a first-half hat-trick including two genuine contenders for goal of the season.The first, a stunning volley into the top corner from almost 40 metres, was followed by a more modest poacher’s effort, before he wowed the home fans further by juggling the ball and cracking in an unstoppable shot from distance.He completed his personal show-reel with another moment of quality, bending a 25-metre free kick into the top corner, before Norwich pulled a goal back through Bradley Johnson and Raheem Sterling rounded off the scoring for the hosts.Arsenal’s Bendtner has been little more than a casual observer in their superb start to the season, yet with the transfer window looming, he delivered a timely reminder to Arsene Wenger that he could yet be an able deputy to Olivier Giroud.Having not started a game since March 2011, Bendtner took just two minutes to etch his name on the scoresheet, rising to meet a Carl Jenkinson cross and slamming a powerful header into the net from four metres out.Mesut Ozil calmed the nerves by finishing from close range two minutes after the restart following some creative gold dust from Aaron Ramsey.The creative firepower that Arsenal have at their disposal seems to be a missing ingredient at Old Trafford where United failed to break down Everton and were picked off by Bryan Oviedo’s 86th-minute sucker punch.Moyes was given a hostile reception from Everton’s travelling fans, but the mood turned to jubilation for those clad in blue as left back Oviedo converted Romelu Lukaku’s cross from the right.After Moyes had failed to ever get a positive result at Old Trafford, new boss Roberto Martinez picked up three points at the first time of asking, the Toffees’ first win at the ground since 1992.“I’m very disappointed. We needed a bit of good fortune and we didn’t get it. Everton kept at it and showed us what a good team they are,” Moyes said.“It wasn’t about me tonight, I was fortunate to manage Everton and I’m fortunate to be managing Manchester United. It’s a big catch up for us now.”There was also disappointment for Sunderland manager Gus Poyet as the former Chelsea midfielder came unstuck against his old club.Eden Hazard starred for Chelsea by scoring twice as they edged a seven-goal encounter 4-3 with Frank Lampard and a Phil Bardsley own goal the other names on the scoresheet for the visitors.Manchester City also came out on top by a single goal, beating West Brom 3-2 as they welcomed back captain Vincent Kompany after a two-month injury layoff.Sergio Aguero opened the scoring on nine minutes and two goals from Yaya Toure, the second a penalty, helped them to a 3-0 lead.An 85th-minute own goal from City keeper Costel Pantilimon and a second West Brom goal from Victor Anichebe five minutes into stoppage-time gave the scoreline a touch of respectability.Aston Villa ended Southampton’s unbeaten home record with a 3-2 win, Swansea City beat Newcastle United 3-0 and Stoke City and Cardiff played out a goalless stalemate.last_img read more

Cornwall on winning trail

first_imgWestern Bureau: Coach of defending champions Cornwall College, Dr Dean Weatherly, wants to maintain a 100 per cent record in this year’s daCosta Cup. Cornwall, 4-1 victors over Green Pond last Saturday, remained on a winning trail with a 3-0 victory over Irwin High yesterday in their Zone ‘A’ fixture. The winners grabbed a foothold in the game as early as the sixth minute with a strike from Denyu Ricketts. Shavon McDonald then scored from the penalty spot in the 30th before Oshane Brown sealed the win for Cornwall in the 61st. Coach Weatherly described the game as ‘a bit sub-par’ and wants his players to get more consistent pace into their game ahead of Saturday’s clash against St James High. “I was looking for a game with more pace. We did it in patches … but we have to go to the drawing board.” Weatherly said. The competition continues today with 17 games.
