UH stock report: Heisman talk, sack master and lots of speculation
Houston Chronicle - over 1 year
Chronicle writer Joseph Duarte’s stock report for University of Houston football. STOCK UP … Poll position: After a nearly four-year absence, the Cougars returned to the Associated Press poll at No. 24 this week. Yet another milestone in the H-Town Takeover. UH, meanwhile, just missed the cut in the Amway coaches poll. New Year’s Six: The ranking also puts the Cougars in the discussion for the Group of Five bid to a New Year’s Six bowl. The first College Football Playoff ranking is still a few weeks away but if the Cougars keep winning they will be listed. Why is that important? The highest-ranked champion from the American Athletic, Mountain West, Mid-American, Conference USA and Sun Belt receives an at-large spot in either the Fiesta or Peach bowl. Holidays in Arizona, anyone? Heisman talk: Yes it’s early. Yes it’s a long shot for now.

Handing out game balls after UH’s win over SMU
Houston Chronicle - over 1 year
Handing out game balls from the University of Houston’s 49-28 win over SMU: • Quarterback Greg Ward Jr.: Let the Heisman Trophy talk officially begin. For the second week in a row, Ward did not throw a touchdown, but who needs them when he does so much with his feet? He had four rushing touchdowns to increase his season total to 11, tied with LSU’s Leonard Fournette for the most in Football Bowl Subdivision. • Linebacker Steven Taylor set up permanent residency on SMU quarterback Matt Davis’ front porch for most of the game Thursday. Taylor had three sacks and caused two turnovers, including a fumble by Matt Davis to tie the game at 21-21. If you’re keeping track at home, that’s six sacks in the last two games and eight before we’ve even reached the halfway point of the season. Oh, he also had three more quarterback hurries, coming close to adding to his sack total. • Running back Kenneth Farrow: Farrow had only 11 rushing attempts, but three ended in touchdowns.

By Sonia Oxley MANCHESTER, England, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Manchester City started their Premier League campaign in scintillating fashion on Monday with a stylish 4-0 win at home to 10-man Newcastle United as Manuel Pellegrini made a dream start to management in England. Last season's runners-up took just six minutes to open the scoring with David Silva heading in after Steven Taylor failed to deal with Edin Dzeko's shot across the goal. They doubled their lead on 22 minutes when a low shot from Sergio Aguero, set up by a neat flick from Dzeko, went in off the far post. ...

UH camp report: Cougars have ‘begun to narrow down’ QB race, Levine says
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
• Houston freshman Chauntez Jackson will have double-duty this season • • • Houston head coach Tony Levine said naming a starting quarterback could extend beyond the two-week timetable originally set at the start of preseason camp. Levine did offer this observation from closed practices: “We’ve begun to narrow it down.” There are five quarterbacks competing for the job – incumbent David Piland, sophomore Bram Kohlhausen, junior college transfer Billy Cosh and true freshmen John O’Korn and Greg Ward. • There are 10 true freshmen competing for playing time on the Cougars’ unofficial two-deep roster. Beginning next week, UH will simulate its usual game-week schedule in preseason camp. “They will have two weeks to solidify whether they are going to play this year or be a redshirt candidate,” Levine said. • The Cougars will open two practices to fans over the next two weeks. Tuesday’s practice, set for 6-7:50 p.m. is open to fans that purchase a single-game ticket for the ...

Rutherford is charged with fires dating back to Sept. 6, 2011. Most were extinguished at less than 50 acres with limited damages.

Derek Jacobi and Lalla Ward in the BBC’s 1980 adaptation of Hamlet Whovians, Anglophenians, Fiends. Romans and Gruntymen, this series has been a lot of fun. We found out that Arthur Darvill used to work with Sooty, we found out that Billie Piper and Matt Smith snogged, and we found out that David Tennant used to be a woman, but all good things must come to an end (and all bad things too, that’s the nature of entropy), and so this will be our final trip back in time to the previous (and subsequent) careers of the most notable actors in Whovian history.

Readers of this blog are aware that I am not a fan of the Flake Amendment, a proposal by the House of Representatives to zero out the political science portion of the National Science Foundation  budget -- and only the political science portion of that budget -- so that the $9 million or so will go to the physical or natural sciences instead.  This is one of those populist measures that sounds peach but in fact relies on either a piss-poor understanding of how public goods work, a piss-poor understanding of how political science works, or both.  Still, you'd expect that the natural and physical scientists would be at worst neutral about the Flake Amendment.  After all, in a restrictive budgetary environment, anything that plumps up their research dollars can't hurt, right?  Via Steven Taylor , however, I see that the editors of Nature have a better grasp of political science than, well, some people who write about politics for a living.  I don't agree with everything in this ...

A Wee History of the Census
Mother Jones - almost 5 years
Steven Taylor reports today on a boneheaded effort by House Republicans to kill off the American Community Survey, an annual program supported not just by mushy-headed liberals, but by conservative think tanks and the business community. It's an invaluable source of information about the state of the country, but because it's conducted by the Census Bureau it's become a tea party bête noire. They're convinced that because the Constitution calls for a decennial "enumeration," then by God, that's all they can do. They can count heads and nothing more. Anything else is an intolerable invasion of privacy. I wonder if these guys have ever actually looked at an old census record? Taylor mentions the historical evidence that James Madison himself wanted to count much more than heads and that, in fact, more than a mere count has been done in every census since 1790. What's more, the government has conducted other, more detailed censuses routinely since the early 19th century. In any case ...

Pardew still seeing red over Blues
Shields Gazette - almost 5 years
CHELSEA’S win at St James’s Park earlier in the season still rankles with Alan Pardew. David Luiz should have been sent off in the fifth minute for bringing down Newcastle United striker Demba Ba, who was through on goal. Referee Mike Dean inexplicably chose a yellow rather than a red card and Pardew’s side went on to lose 3-0, but the game was in the balance until Steven Taylor ruptured his Achilles in the second half, two of the visiting side’s goals coming late in the game. Before the break, Pardew lost captain Fabricio Coloccini to a hamstring injury. Pardew, pictured, is hopeful his team will have better luck at Stamford Bridge tonight in the club’s penultimate away fixture of the season. “That game hinged on the sending off – I don’t care how you look at it, (Luiz) should have gone,” Pardew told the Gazette. “The referee came to see me afterwards and said he should have gone. They were lucky that day. Hopefully, it’ll be our turn.” Newcastle’s six-game winning run was brou ...

NUFC winger Sylvain Marveaux closes in on return to action
Hartlepool Mail - almost 5 years
NEWCASTLE United’s Sylvain Marveaux is close to making his long-awaited comeback from injury. And Marveaux’s fellow winger Gabriel Obertan also has a chance of being involved against Wigan Athletic on Saturday. United manager Alan Pardew’s hopeful the pair will be fit enough to make his squad for the club’s visit to the DW Stadium. The news on Marveaux and Obertan follows Leon Best’s return to the squad last weekend, when he was an unused substitute in the 3-0 win over Stoke City. Only long-term injured Peter Lovenkrands, Sammy Ameobi, Steven Taylor and Haris Vuckic remain in the treatment room. And Pardew – whose side are chasing Champions League qualification – feels the return of Marveaux, Obertan and Best is timely, such is the importance of the last four games of the season. Marveaux has been out since November with hip and groin injuries, while Obertan has missed the past five weeks with a knock. “We’re getting everyone back, and with another week’s training for Marveaux a ...

    Age 23
    He was appointed captain of the under-21 side on 5 September, having previously been vice-captain to Nigel Reo-Coker, and captained them to a place 2009 European Championships, playing in all qualifiers.
    More Details Hide Details During the second leg of the play-offs against Wales, his header from Jamie O'Hara's corner caused a Sam Vokes own-goal which levelled the score to send England through to the tournament. He was due to lead them through the European Championships but a recurring injury forced him to withdraw, ending his under-21 career and Mark Noble captained the team in his absence. On 19 March 2013, Taylor was once again called up to the England national football team senior squad for the World Cup qualifying match against San Marino, as a replacement for the injured Gary Cahill. Newcastle United
    Taylor remained first-choice alongside Coloccini, starting all games when fit. On 19 September 2009, he scored the first and only goal of the season in a 3–1 win over Plymouth Argyle.

Though he missed the rest of the season through injury, Newcastle finished at the top of the table with an unbeaten home record, winning direct promotion back to the Premier League. His contribution was recognised as he was selected as Sport Newcastle's Sports Personality of the Year.

He came in second in The Journal's player of the season poll, behind Bassong. With Newcastle relegated, there were question marks over Taylor's future. Rumours began circulating in newspapers about a possible move back to the Premier League, including a possible replacement for Chelsea captain John Terry who was attracting strong interest from Manchester City and Everton rumoured to be interested as well. Taylor himself made no move to secure a transfer request and made no comment until the transfer window closed. In the end, he announced his decision to stay in a bid to help Newcastle regain Premier League status even though it meant that he would have to put his dreams of a senior international debut on hold.
  • 2007
    Age 21
    During the 2007 U-21 European Championship qualifying, Taylor began to establish himself as a regular and played a key role in their run to the semifinals at the tournament.
    More Details Hide Details He missed the first match through suspension due to his red card in the play-offs against Germany but played the other two group games and the semi-final where he was unable to stop the late equaliser after going down injured. With England down to ten men after fellow defender Nedum Onuoha left the field injured and all three substitutions had been used, Taylor was forced to play through the pain barrier as the game went into extra-time and converted his penalty in a dramatic penalty shoot-out that ended 13–12 to the Dutch. Taylor was called up to the senior team on 17 August 2007 for the friendly against Germany though he did not play in the match and also made an appearance for the B team.
    Under Sam Allardyce, Taylor was in and out of the starting eleven and there were fears that he would leave after he had rejected the contract extension offered Nevertheless, in November 2007, he was voted the North East FWA Young Player of the Year for his achievements.
    More Details Hide Details With the installation of Kevin Keegan as Allardyce's successor, he won back his place and signed the contract at the end of the season.

He put some strong performances in vital matches, including scoring a goal and setting up another to earn a hard-fought draw away at Everton, and was back into the team, mostly at right-back due to injury problems.
  • TEENAGE
  • 2006
    Age 20
    He then scored his first league goal in a 3–1 victory against Blackburn Rovers on 9 December 2006, and began to play more regularly, making 12 starts for Newcastle in defence.
    More Details Hide Details
    He scored his debut senior goal in a UEFA Cup tie against Celta de Vigo on 23 November 2006.
    More Details Hide Details The two sides were deadlocked at 1–1 before his header won the game. He earned the nickname "Forrest Gump" for celebrating by running the length of the pitch.
    The 2006–07 season was considered the breakthrough season for Taylor.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2005
    Age 19
    Taylor's first few seasons were marred by various injuries. He missed the latter half of the 2005–06 season after aggravating a shoulder injury sustained while on international duty.
    More Details Hide Details Following surgery he was effectively ruled out for entire second half of the season but managed to make a substitute appearance in Alan Shearer's testimonial match on 11 May.
  • 2004
    Age 18
    The start of the 2004–05 season was disappointing, as Taylor had a long injury lay-off.
    More Details Hide Details He eventually came back to play 22 games for the club, starting 17. During this season, the teenager was largely remembered for a bizarre incident in the 2 April match against Aston Villa where he "saved" Darius Vassell's shot and went down clutching his chest. The referee promptly dismissed him for "deliberate handball" but it was overshadowed by the heated on-pitch argument between Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer which led to their dismissals and Newcastle going down to eight men. Because his dive was inconsequential (the game was beyond Newcastle as Dyer and Bowyer had been sent off), he achieved cult/comical status with Newcastle fans and many neutrals.
    Upon returning to Newcastle in the latter half of the season, the teenager was mostly shifting back and forth between the first team and reserves. On 25 March 2004 in the UEFA Cup Fourth Round second leg tie against Mallorca, he came on as a substitute for Andy O'Brien to make his first team debut and held the record as the Magpies' youngest debutant in European competition in the 2000s until it was broken by Andy Carroll in November 2006.
    More Details Hide Details Three days later, he made his Premier League debut against Bolton Wanderers and was in the starting eleven as in a less familiar right back role. His debut ended disappointingly as he was out-muscled by Henrik Pedersen in the build up that led to Bolton's match-winning goal. This would be his only other appearance for the rest of the season, although he did make the bench on several occasions.
  • 2003
    Age 17
    The following season, he was sent on a month-long loan to Wycombe Wanderers where he played under his childhood hero Tony Adams and made his league debut in the old Second Division against Notts County in December 2003.
    More Details Hide Details
    He also played in 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship along with future under-21 teammates James Milner, Andrew Taylor and Martin Cranie and started in all the group matches despite being one of the youngest squad members at age seventeen.
    More Details Hide Details Following a good showing in Dubai despite England's dismal results, Taylor made his England under-21 debut on 17 February the next year in a 3–2 win over the Netherlands. In June 2005, Taylor represented England Under-20 at the Toulon International Tournament, where England finished in third place. On 6 September 2005, he scored his first under-21 goal, against the German side. He also scored two goals against the Poland Under-21s in October 2005.
    In March 2003, the England Under-17 team qualified for the European Championships, and in the match against Slovakia, Taylor scored his first two goals for England.

  • 2001
    Age 15
    He played a key part in helping the U-17's win the old Premier Academy League U-17 title for the 2001–02 season.
