became the latest public figure to speak out against the Antworten

After defeating Indiana on Saturday, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have already matched their win total from last season and are off to their best start (6-0) since 2001 when they won their first 11 games and lost in the BCS Championship Game against Miami.Mike Riley deserves credit for the Huskers turnaround, but maybe there is a secret to their success that is rooted in data and statistical analysis.?Nebraska is the only Division I college athletic program that employs a sport analytics department spanning all sports. Headed by Tucker Zeleny, Nebraskas full-time director of sports analytics and data analysis hired in 2015, the department is in charge of working with Nebraskas 24 varsity sports teams to collect, analyze and summarize data for the coaches and staffs.In the simplest terms, Zeleny and his team look at anything and everything that can help Nebraska win games including scouting, recruiting, health and nutrition, player exertion, injury prevention and more.A native of Carleton, Nebraska, Zeleny grew up loving Nebraska sports. He earned his doctorate in statistics from the university in 2015 and convinced the Nebraska brass that sports analytics can make an impact in college athletics.Zeleny understands that his role is not to replace coaches and scouts; rather, he can provide them data to inform their decisions.Maybe its something new or something they suspected and we can reinforce that idea. Zeleny said.One example of a study the analytics department recently completed is an analysis of what wins football games. Looking back at the past five seasons, they determined what makes a successful team (beyond scoring more points than its opponents) and provided the coaching staff with benchmarks relating to turnovers, penalties, third downs, yards per point differential and more.Beyond looking at conference and national trends, the analytics team also dives deeper into scouting, situational decision-making and player exertion than ever before.We do player tracking with Catapult [a GPS tracker] and that is mostly done from a health perspective, Zeleny said. Coaches get that data and monitor the player loads. We dive deeper in the analytics department to do more predictive injury risks.Additionally, the team provides coaches with information on opponent tendencies, formations and personnel to help with scouting, and have looked at specific situations (such as fourth downs) to supplement coaches in-game strategy.Maybe this type of data analysis impacts only a few plays or players per game, but if any team understands how much one or two plays can impact the entire season, its the Nebraska football team, which lost four games on the final play in 2015.Zeleny notes that the Nebraskas coaching staff has been receptive to this added data, but the key is to present their findings in a way that coaches can relate to.We know that if we go in there guns blazing and act like you have all the answers with someone who has worked there for years, you arent going to have a lot of success, Zeleny noted. Coaches are coaches for a reason, so we try to help them as much as possible and supplement them rather than replace them.Over the years, sports analytics has gotten a bad rap from some purists; skeptics fear that the nerd behind the computer will take over their time-honored game, but the main goal for groups such as the one at Nebraska is to simply provide one more tool for coaches and staffs to make decisions.The sports analytics revolution?has already begun in college football, and as teams and coaches continue to recognize the value it can provide, it will only continue to grow.While Nebraskas 6-0 start should not be unduly credited to the schools year-old sports analytics department, it certainly doesnt hurt to have extra data that can provide the slightest edge. Leighton Vander Esch Jersey . "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Authentic .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. http://www.wholesalecowboysjerseys.com/ . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. Chris Covington Jersey . Galatasaray said in a statement on its website Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4. Dorance Armstrong Jersey . The Islanders dealt Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens after less than a year on Long Island. Meanwhile, the Oilers dealt long-time sniper Ales hemsky to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a third-rounder in 2015. Colin Kaepernick stood tall while sitting down, which is not an easy thing to do. In fact, what he did in benching himself for the national anthem on Friday night was the hardest thing he could possibly do.The easy thing? That would be standing silently with his teammates on the San Francisco 49ers sideline, cutting against the grain of his conscience. Nobody wouldve known the difference. Nobody would have reason to challenge his patriotism, to call him all kinds of nasty names, and to remind him, by the way, that he has devolved into a lousy quarterback who should be spending more time with his playbook anyway.But he planted himself among the Gatorade buckets, understanding that in an age of 24/7 surveillance, he would be outed soon enough. Kaepernick didnt strike the kind of dramatic pose made by Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Summer Games in Mexico City, and that was OK. He made his statement loudly and clearly.I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color, Kaepernick told NFL Medias Steve Wyche, confirming Pro Football Talks original report. To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.An unscientific survey of Twitter reaction from players, fans and observers offered more evidence that the country is divided, perhaps still broken, along racial lines. This emerged as the one undisputed truth about a story that will have legs as long as the quarterback doesnt use his during the pregame anthem:Kaepernick is a 28-year-old biracial man who was raised by the white parents who adopted him, and who believes he can no longer remain silent in a country where young, black men are too often shot by overheated cops, and where blacks are forever asked by whites to rise above obstacles that whites themselves created.African-American athletes are often asked (unfairly, perhaps) to speak out on social issues and, well, Kaepernick just did. If you dont like what the man did or said, thats your prerogative. But telling him that what he said and did was un-American is to lose sight of what it means to be an American.In some corners of the globe, Kaepernick might face prison time or worse for publicly disrespecting his country. Only the quarterback didnt disrespect the United States. While pointing out its fatal flaws -- socioeconomic and justice systems still tilted against African-Americans after all these years -- Kaepernick unwittingly reminded the world that the U.S. is still a pretty damn good place to live.His team released a statement praising what the anthem represents but recognizing that Kaepernicks boycott matched up with such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression. Hiis league said players are encouraged but not required to stand for the anthem.ddddddddddddHis coach, Chip Kelly, said he had no right to tell any player how to honor, or not honor, his country.This is what American servicemen and women have defended here and abroad -- Kaepernicks right to sing the national anthem at the top of his lungs, and to refuse honor it altogether. As long as hes not interfering with his teammates right to make their own red, white and blue choices, whats the problem here?But yes, people had problems. A lot of people. Matt Hasselbeck, former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst, tweeted this of Kaepernicks move: Easy way to make sure youre NOT the starting QB on opening day. #Sept. 11.On the job front, perhaps some broad-minded Niners players, coaches and executives were less concerned with the real-world distraction theyd have to deal with and more impressed by the fact Kaepernick showed some courage and leadership at great personal risk. If they take football away, my endorsements from me, Kaepernick said, I know that I stood up for what is right.On the Sept. 11 hashtag front, I remember standing near the smolder at Ground Zero?when an African-American cab driver from Queens told me he believed the terrorist attacks would spell the end of racism in America. He thought a common enemy would bring white and black together, and I recall thinking it was one of the nicest things I had ever heard. Sadly, it didnt prove prophetic. There remains a White America and a Black America, separate and unequal, and Kaepernick just became the latest public figure to speak out against the imbalance.And now youre going to tell him to stick to football? To just worry about beating out Blaine Gabbert? To stand before the game and show proper respect to everything that song and flag represents?Youre going to try to scare him into submission with a biblical flood of tweets?Most of todays athletes arent ready for the backlash, sociologist Harry Edwards told me at this years Super Bowl. Edwards was a source of inspiration behind the 1968 Olympic protest. And they forget they dont control that, especially in this age of 24-hour social media. This isnt the athlete revolt of 1967, when you were talking about a telephone and a single reporter at a major newspaper and then somebody else picking up the story. Today, you hit send and you have an instant worldwide audience.Kaepernick didnt fear that attention; go review his Twitter timeline, his retweets of issues in black and white. This day was coming for him, just as it was for many bold athletes who preceded him.They say football builds character. In America, we should celebrate the fact that Colin Kaepernick just revealed his.
