The Willie Taggart Era Officially Begins at FSU

At just 41 years of age Willie Taggart has been given the reins to one of the blue-chip programs of college football, Florida State University, and March 21st marks the first time that Taggart can take the field with his players and get out there for a practice. It has been a meteoric rise for Taggart, a native of Bradenton, Florida, spent the previous season at the University of Oregon but was lured back home to coach the Seminoles due to the opening left by Jimbo Fisher bolting for a massive contract at Texas A&M. Previously to that, Taggart helped build the University of South Florida into a respected program and in his last season with the Bulls led the team to a 10-2 record including a conference title. This season will be the largest spotlight Taggart has ever coached under but he is known as a fierce competitor and the roster he was bequeathed is still one of the more talented in the country. Florida State fans are known for their high expectations, and Willie Taggart and this Seminoles team will need to come out to a hot start today at practice if they want to live up to those expectations.

While we won’t likely learn too much from the team’s first practice it is still going to be a welcome sight for FSU fans to see Taggart conducting drills in the Seminoles gold & garnet colors. Last year FSU underperformed, in large part due to injuries at key positions such as Quarterback, but perhaps hearing a new voice leading the team will begin to motivate the team to bounce back in the 2018 season. Every practice will need to count for the Seminoles as they actually open up next season with a matchup against familiar ACC foe Virginia Tech. While the game against Virginia Tech will be at home, FSU will take to the road to take on Syracuse and then Louisville, both respectable programs that could pull off an upset if FSU is not prepared.

The opening practice surely won’t make or break the Florida State football program, but it is the symbolic opening of the Wille Taggart era. And while Taggart’s experienced success at USF and is heralded as an elite recruiter the simple fact remains that he has never been in charge of such a large program before, so the first day of practice will also be a chance for Taggart to shake the nerves off a bit.

Bucs Looking Forward to Big Draft Day

Like every other team in the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are using the current offseason to try and rebuild their team. The 2017 NFL season was not a very good one for the Buccaneers. After having a very strong 2016 season that saw the team win more games than they lost, most people are expecting 2017 to be another great year. However, things did not go as planned and the Bucs won just five games while finishing in last place in the NFC South Division.

Now that the NFL season is over, the Buccaneers are looking for many different ways to revamp their roster for the future. This offseason, the team has already made several big moves that show the direction they are taking. One big move that the team made was the decision to release star running back Doug Martin. Martin had made a couple of Pro Bowl teams in his time in Tampa, but also struggled to stay on the field this past year. At the same time, the team looks like they are ready to commit to the team’s passing game when they signed Mike Evans, a wide receiver, to a long-term extension.

One of the biggest days of the offseason for the Buccaneers, and every other team in the NFL, will be the NFL draft. The draft is always one of the biggest events of the offseason as many people try to predict what every team will do. Since the Buccaneers have a pretty high overall draft pick, they are a big focus of many experts. While some teams have a clear direction of what they will do with their picks, the Bucs are not as easy to predict (https://thepewterplank.com/2018/03/21/tampa-bay-buccaneers-draft-strategy-still-question).

At this point, many people seem to think that the Bucs will try and improve their defense. The team already has to compete with three of the top quarterbacks in the league in their division so finding ways to slow down passing attacks is crucial. Because of this, many seem to think that they will go after a safety or corner back if one of the top players falls to their slot. Another option they are considering is finding a way to improve the offensive line by adding a tackle high in the draft.

Close-up Look at Jason Hope

Jason Hope is a strong willed businessman with vast experience in technology related inventions as well as a futuristic mentality. Jason was born in Tempe Arizona. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in finance from the Arizona State University and later earned his MBA from W.P. Carey School of Business. His upbringing and educational background has allowed him to become passionate about business as well as spearheading the industry of Internet of Things.Jason’s passion for solving problems and offering solutions to futuristic issues has led him to pursue greatly empowering of young entrepreneurs curious to kick start their business idea. This reputation has earned him great significance on a global scale and recognition among influential businessmen.Presently, Jason Hope spends most of his time on various business projects by monitoring their progress as well as offering necessary assistance if need be from his residence of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Jason Hope’s Interest in SENS Research Foundation

Jason, being the philanthropist and futurist, has a keen eye on the developments in anti-aging techniques that are being developed. He strongly believes that aging can be prevented by treating. SENS Research Foundation is very instrumental in achieving Jason’s goal.SENS Research Foundation is aimed at developing drugs that that correct the aging process that is usually accelerated by diseases such as Parkinson’s disease as well as Alzheimer’s disease and other degenerative diseases.In the year 2010, Jason Hope donated an amount of up to $500,000 towards SENS Research Foundation in order to help propagate anti-aging. This donation together with other similar donations from various sources led to the construction of Cambridge SENS Laboratory.

Jason’s donation towards SENS Research Foundation has also helped in progressing research that was based on AGE-breaker drugs, which simply break down complex molecule structures of glycation end products that ten help in anti-aging. There was little progress in this area of research mainly as a result of experiments being carried out only on lab animals.As a result, the results of experimentation have been poor. Jason hopes to inspire more donors to jump on this opportunity to get involved with futuristic investments. Jason’s investment will also help future generations to save money that is normally spent in treating diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.Recent discoveries of the cellular differences between short life-span animals and humans has eased the load of research and narrowed it as well and therefore creating good focus. This is bound to come up with very good results in anti-aging in future.

Buccaneers Sign Mike Evans to Largest Wide Receiver Contract in NFL History

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed wide receiver Mike Evans to a five-year contract extension with $82.5 million, with $55 million injury guaranteed. The deal is set to keep Evans, 24, in Tampa Bay until 2023 and would see the receiver average $16.5 million a year, making him the second highest-paid wide receiver in the league behind the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Antonio Brown. Worth a maximum of just over $95 million, counting bonuses, the new contract has also set a record for the highest agreed upon sum for a wide receiver in NFL history.

Talks of a new deal between Evans and the Buccaneers had begun before the 2017 season, but intensified during the off season with Evans approaching the option year of his entry-level contract, which could have seen him become a free agent. With the young Pro-Bowler already in the franchise top three for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, securing him with a long-term contract was one of the Buccaneers’ priorities. Evans announced the new deal on Instagram, pledging to “continue to strive for greatness on the field as well as in my community.”

Since being selected out of Texas A&M with the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft , Evans has tallied more than 1,000 yards every season, establishing himself as one of the league’s foremost offensive players. Last season saw him tally up 71 receptions for 1001 yards and five touchdowns in 15 appearances. This run puts him behind only A.J. Green and Randy Moss for consecutive seasons with 1000 yards or more after being drafted; Green had five and Moss had six. In 2016, Evans set his career high in receptions (96), yards gained (1,322) and touchdowns (12), earning selections to the Pro Bowl and the second-team All Pro list.

Despite Evans, wide receiver DeSean Jackson and quarterback Jameis Winston combining to lead Tampa Bay to fourth in the league in yards per game with 272.9, the Buccaneers are looking to rebound from a disappointing season that saw them post a 5-11 record and finish bottom of the NFC South.

Andrei Vasilevskiy Ties Franchise Mark for Wins:

It has been a great season for the Tampa Bay Lightning. With Thursday’s win over the New York Rangers, they are the best team in the NHL point-wise with 98, giving them a six point lead over the Boston Bruins for the top spot in the Atlantic Division.

Personally, it has been a great year for Tampa Bay’s goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. On March 8th, the Tyumen, Russia native came up with 27 saves in the Lightning’s victory over the Rangers. That was his 40th win of the year, the most in the NHL. In the process, Vasilevskiy tied the franchise mark for most wins in a season with Ben Bishop, who achieved that number in 2014-2015. Your text to link…By the way, that season was Vasilevskiy’s first in the NHL.

Back then, fans may not have envisioned Vasilevskiy as the goaltender who’d be a key reason for the Lightning’s success in 2017-2018, not with Bishop doing so well between the pipes. Vasilevskiy did all right as a backup, going 7-5-1 with a 2.36 GAA in his rookie year. But just before the 2015-2016 season, he underwent surgery to remove a blood clot near his collarbone. He was cleared in late October, and managed a combined record of 18-14 between Tampa Bay and its AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch. He also went 3-4 for the Lightning in the playoffs.

2016-2017 would be the year Vasilevskiy got his big break. With Bishop traded to the Los Angeles Kings, Vasilevskiy was now the Lightning’s number one goalie. His performance was above average with a 23-17-7 record with a 2.61 GAA. Tampa Bay, however, failed to make the playoffs.

This year, everything is coming together for Vasilevskiy. The Lightning’s first overall pick in the 2012 Draft is 40-12-3 with a 2.45 GAA on March 9th, and will soon set the team record for most wins in a season. While he admitted in a recent interview that he is fatigued from playing more games than ever this season, it is a tiredness he can probably cope with should Tampa Bay go deep in the playoffs.

How Jason Hope is Helping Uncover Anti Aging Techniques

Jason Hope is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and technological enthusiast. Hope studied at Arizona State University where he has gotten a bachelor’s degree in Finance. He later on pursued more studies to attain an MBA in the field of Business.Through Jason’s upbringing in Tempe, Arizona where he was also born, Jason has over the years gained a lot of recognition for his interest and investment in technology. He is a strong believer in the Internet of Things that propagates smart devices connected to the internet being a major part of our development as a society. They will influence how we interact with one another as well as carrying out business.Jason is also a major believer in investing in business ideas. Through multiple business proposals from young techpreneurs, Jason Hope has been able to fund them so they can be able to gain some stability and energy to kick off.This is especially in cases where it proves challenging to start a new business. The amount of money that is invested may vary on a case to case basis as some ideas just need a little financial boost which goes a long way in supporting the business.

Jason Hope and SENS Research Foundation

Jason Hope’s philanthropic tendencies and futuristic mentality has seen to his donation towards SENS Research Foundation of $500,000 in the recent past. SENS Research Foundation is based in Mountain View, California. Its main goal is to seek ways of dealing with anti-aging remedies. For a long time, anti-aging techniques have been very costly especially when affected by diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s which accelerate the degeneration of body cells and therefore aging of the body.Jason strongly believes in finding solutions that can assist in dealing with future related problems and therefore his drive to fund and promote the research of SENS Research Foundation.

Through his generous donation, SENS Research Foundation was able to establish the Cambridge SENS Laboratory.Through anti-aging research, a lot of significant progress has been made recently mainly because in the past, most of the anti-aging based experiments were carried out on short life span animals. The results and observations therefore led to very disappointing result on long life span humans. This was as a result of opposed stem cell experimentation as a result of religious bias.As more research has been conducted, it has been revealed that the complex differences in aging processes between humans and animals are mainly caused by the glucosepane cell in humans. This has therefore focused research in anti-aging techniques and treatment.Learn More.

Tampa Bay’s New Direction for Day Five Starter:

Jake Odorizzi is with Minnesota and Alex Cobb is still unsigned as a free agent. That’s two of Tampa Bay’s starting pitchers from 2017 no longer with the club. Compounding things is one of the Rays top relievers from last year, Tommy Hunter, is now with the Phillies. Manager Kevin Cash has a lot of work to do this spring getting his pitching staff in order in time for March 29th, when Tampa Bay opens the 2018 season against the defending American League Champion Boston Red Sox.

One possible bright spot for the rotation could have been righty Jose De Leon. A top prospect in the Rays organization, he suffered a serious injury to his right elbow and could be gone for an extended period. Another top prospect who may have helped Tampa Bay later in the year, Brent Honeywell, is also gone for the year. The MVP of last year’s All-Star Futures Game, Honeywell underwent Tommy John surgery in February.

This has led Cash to try a different approach for the 2018 season. Instead of the typical five-man rotation, the Rays will have four regular starting pitchers, then on the fifth day, call it the multi-headed starter. Cash stated the fifth turn through the rotation would be reserved for three or four pitchers coming out of the bullpen, pitching to each batter in the opposing line-up once.

One of those relievers who’ll likely get a lot of fifth day action is the newest Ray, Daniel Hudson. Acquired from Pittsburgh in the Corey Dickerson trade, Hudson is an eight-year Major League veteran, the bulk of those years in Arizona, where he was a 16-game winner in 2011. Another key veteran to come out of the bullpen for the Rays on the fifth day is Sergio Romo. Acquired last year from the Dodgers, Romo was an integral part of the Giants bullpen in their world championship years of 2010, 2012, and 2014. Your text to link…

The biggest concern with Cash’s plan has to be what happens should he have to use a lot of relievers for the third or fourth man in the rotation?

USF Women’s Basketball Eagerly Awaiting Seeding

With just four days until the unveiling of the Women’s March Madness bracket the University of South Florida Bulls are ready to celebrate the culmination of a successful regular season and move on to the high-pressure stakes of the postseason. It’s been a heck of a year for the Bulls, finishing with an impressive 26-7 overall record and notching a 13-3 record within the American Conference, good for second in the conference behind perennial women’s power UConn. Indeed, it was the Huskies of UConn who beat USF in the American Athletic Conference Tournament championship to cap off their undefeated regular season. The Huskies have had USF’s number all season long, as they were responsible for 3 of the 7 losses the Bulls suffered this year. Bulls fans everywhere will be hoping that whatever part of the bracket the team ends up on, that it will be far away from UConn.

Speculation abounds over what seed the Bulls will garner themselves, with the common belief being that it will fall somewhere in the 3-5 seed range. Their strength of schedule is not all that impressive, finishing with the 74th most difficult schedule in D1 Women’s hoops, but they are currently ranked #19 in the country and are led by Senior forward Maria Jespersen who has picked up her play significantly down the stretch. This season has been another impressive notch on the belt of Coach who has now been at the helm for 18 seasons, turning the program into a perennial contender. After the tournament selections becomes official on Tuesday, Fernandez will have led his team to March Madness for a school-record 4 seasons in a row.

While the skill necessary to routinely make the tournament can’t be understated, it goes without saying that Fernandez and his team will be wanting to make a deeper run than they have in previous seasons. Despite his rock-solid consistency, Coach Fernandez has yet to lead the Bulls past the second round of the tourney. However, many analysts seem to believe that this USF team is poised to break into the Sweet 16, and maybe even beyond.

As the selections draw nearer and nearer USF’s players, coaches, and fans will be waiting in anticipation to see when and where they will be slotted — and once that’s figured out, the real fun begins!
