LSU head coach Les Miles on Zack Mahoney: ‘We’ll prepare for the best’

first_img Published on September 23, 2015 at 11:40 am Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ On Tuesday night, Syracuse offensive coordinator Tim Lester said Zack Mahoney was “the guy” at quarterback for the Orange. On Saturday, the sophomore walk-on will likely be under center against No. 8 LSU (2-0, 2-0 Southeastern).Tigers head coach Les Miles discussed facing the once-fifth-stringer on Wednesday’s SEC coaches’ teleconference, expressing that his preparation won’t be any different facing a signal-caller making his first career Division-I start.“We expect him to be able to operate their offense as well as any and we’ll prepare for the best,” Miles said.Mahoney, who completed all four of his passes for 19 yards against Central Michigan, also ran for 12 yards and pitched the game-winning touchdown to freshman running back Jordan Fredericks in overtime.The LSU defense will be a different animal, but on Tuesday Mahoney said there are no nerves, just excitement.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“So many times the cream rises to the top and the opportunity for a guy to step on the field and do what he did last week gives people a lot of confidence,” Miles said. “We would guess that he can operate the Syracuse offense, that all the best stuff Syracuse has done will still be there.” Commentslast_img read more

Lawmakers approve bill to streamline Clippers arena project

first_img Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Revisions to the bill bolstered its environmental protections, several senators said Friday.State Sen. Jeff Stone (R-Temecula) noted that the bill requires a 15 percent reduction of the Clippers’ current carbon footprint as tenants at Staples Center, where the team’s lease extends through 2024.“That’s going to be a hard goal to meet, but (team owner) Steve Ballmer and his colleagues have agreed to these very stringent conditions,” Stone said.In a statement released late Friday, Ballmer praised Kamlager-Dove and legislators for the bill’s passage.“We are now one step closer to bringing the world’s best basketball arena to a community that deserves the best,” Ballmer said. “Most importantly, with the passage of this bill, we are proudly setting a new standard for environmental responsibility. AB 987 puts into writing the promise we’ve made to Inglewood from the start: to be exceptional neighbors who care passionately about the Inglewood community and its citizens.” As the state legislative session came to a close Friday, lawmakers approved a bill that could streamline the California Environmental Quality Act review process for the proposed Los Angeles Clippers arena in Inglewood.Assembly Bill 987, which now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown, was introduced in June by Assemblywoman Sydney Kamlager-Dove (D-Los Angeles). Like several senators who spoke in favor of the bill before voting Friday, Kamlager-Dove touted the bill as an environmentally conscious, business-friendly measure that will benefit the Inglewood community.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

Oftentimes there are challenges that will force a project to get stalled in court for years and years as a way to kill it, and this is streamlining some elements of that. There will be a full and complete (environmental impact review) done, no shortcuts.”AB 987 would, in part, require courts to prioritize CEQA-related actions over other civil actions and to expedite judicial review requiring the courts to resolve lawsuits within 270 days.

But last year, lawmakers tabled Senate Bill 789, which also sought to streamline the environmental review process for the Clippers project.Representing IRATE (Inglewood Residents Against Taking and Eviction), one of the community groups opposing the project, attorney Doug Carstens argued that AB 987 offers unfair preferential treatment.“I don’t like special treatment of any kind,” Carstens said. “They’ll tell you, ‘We amended it and made it palatable,’ but it’s still special treatment for the Clippers.”IRATE, which has filed two lawsuits seeking to stop the project, alleges that the exclusive negotiating agreement violates CEQA.Uplift Inglewood, another residents group, and the Madison Square Garden Co., which owns the nearby Forum, also have filed suits opposing the project.In a statement, representatives for the Forum applauded the revisions, but still took issue with the bill.“Hundreds of Inglewood residents and supportive local organizations stood up to the L.A. Clippers and helped fix irresponsible legislation designed to gut vital community protections provided by the California Environmental Quality Act,” the Forum’s statement read. “This special legislation will still harm an established low-income community, likely resulting in the loss of affordable housing and creating significant traffic, air quality and other impacts on the neighborhood.” Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum In 2017, the city of Inglewood and the Clippers entered into a three-year exclusive negotiating agreement to build a new arena, practice facility and team headquarters on the southeast corner of Century Boulevard and Prairie Avenue.Related Articleslast_img read more
