Video: Jalen “Teez” Tabor Buys Local Homeless Man New Shoes

first_imghomeless man new with new sneakers.Periscope/_31FlavorzJalen Tabor, Florida’s All-SEC cornerback, is having a very interesting week. On Wednesday, the Gator defensive back was suspended for a practice fight with tight end C’yontai Lewis which reportedly involved swinging helmets. On Friday, he fulfilled a very cool promise to a local homeless man.Friday morning, Tabor tweeted that he saw the man, who had no shoes, and said he was going to buy him a pair.Seen a homeless man with no shoes on today , going to go buy him some shoes— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 19, 2016Trying to make his day a little better— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 19, 2016Gotta give back to those who are less fortunate than you— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 20, 2016An hour later, he streamed the interaction on Periscope. He gave the man a pair of sharp blue sneakers, and $22 for food.LIVE on #Periscope https://t.co/eKdtYQ3qYz— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 20, 2016Sometimes in life you do nothing wrong but God wants to see how you handle adversity— Teez Tabor (@_31Flavorz) August 20, 2016Jalen Tabor is one of Florida’s best players, and definitely among the Gators most interesting personalities. This offseason, he’s made numerous headlines for his very outward trolling of SEC East favorite Tennessee, which has not won a game against Florida since 2004. The Vols are an interesting target for Tabor, however, as he was one of two UF players suspended for their game last season.After the reported fight with Lewis, Tabor will also miss this season’s opener against UMass at home. The Minutemen shouldn’t really stand a chance at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, but a practice fight is a pretty common occurrence in football, and one that rarely warrants a full game suspension, so one can imagine how bad it must have been.Last season, Tabor started nine of Florida’s 13 games, racking up 40 tackles, four interceptions, and scored two touchdowns off of the picks.last_img read more

Foster: Al-Araibi situation now an absolute emergency

5 College Football Coaches Who Could Be Fired In 2018

(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)The 2018 college football season is still a couple of months away, but it’s never too early for hot seat rankings. Which college football coaches need to win (and perhaps win big) in 2018 in order to keep their jobs? Here are five potential coaches on the hot seat.5 coaches on the hot seat entering 2018Texas Tech’s Kliff KingsburyKingsbury has been hyped up a lot, but the results haven’t been there yet. If the Red Raiders don’t have a good 2018, he will probably be out.Kansas’ David BeattyBeatty is 3-33. The Jayhawks just fired their athletic director. Not much more needs to be said.Georgia Tech’s Paul JohnsonJohnson has built Georgia Tech into a respectable, often formidable ACC program, but they’ve had losing seasons in 2 of the last 3 years. Some think it might be time for a change of direction if 2018 isn’t successful.BYU’s Kalani SitakeBYU is a proud program that had a brutal 2017, going 4-9. The Cougars have been rumored to be wanting to make a run at Navy’s Ken Niumatalolo and that could happen if 2018 isn’t a winning year.Illinois’ Lovie SmithIt would cost Illinois a lot of money to fire Smith in 2018, so it’s most-likely not going to happen. But the Fighting Illini didn’t commit to Smith to go 5-19 in two seasons. If 2018 is another disastrous campaign, maybe a change will come. Probably, though, Smith is safe until at least 2019.last_img read more

Mandatory Credit: Andy Lyons /AllsporThe newest member of a crowded field of Democrats vying for the spot across the debate stage from President Donald Trump won’t have the highest name recognition in the country. College football fans from the early 1990s, and specifically Florida State fans, are likely familiar with Wayne Messam, though.Messam played at FSU from 1993-1996, winning a national title with the Seminoles as a freshman. During his career, he caught 62 passes for 793 yards and four touchdowns.Messam parlayed his FSU football career into a brief stint in the NFL.

Penn State 2-Sport Star PJ Mustipher Draws Serious Praise From James Franklin

(Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images)Two-sport athletes are not particularly common in the NCAA, but a few different players out there. Penn State defensive lineman PJ Mustipher is among them.Mustipher was a key contributor last season, appearing in 12 games for the Nittany Lions. He recorded 14 total tackles, including a tackle for loss and a forced fumble.He also plays for what may be Penn State’s most successful athletic program: Nittany Lions wrestling. He was a four-star defensive tackle, and a two-time Maryland state champion on the mat.Mustipher is expected to take on a bigger role on the gridiron this season. Franklin thinks his wrestling background should help him excel in the trenches, where strength, quickness, and leverage are everything.From PennLive:“His improvement from last season, that’s just dramatic, and it doesn’t surprise me because he’s a worker,’’ Franklin said when asked about Mustipher on Tuesday.“I love wrestlers. Obviously, being here at Penn State with our wrestling program, and (you) see what Cael (Sanderson) does, see how those guys work, how they compete.“I think it’s a really, really good sport for junior high and high school football players to play. The work ethic and the mentality are so good. And that’s kinda who (Mustipher’s) been. He’s a worker.’’Mustipher sees it as well, and is ready to take the next step in his football career this fall:“The game has slowed down for me compared to last year. I was just running wild. Coming out of high school, you don’t really have too much technique. You really don’t know the playbook as well as you should, so the game’s definitely slowed down a bit.“I’m playing faster, I’m stronger, I’ve got an extra year in the weight room. So I’m ready to take off.”PJ Mustipher and Penn State open their season at home against Idaho on August 31.[PennLive]last_img read more

India currently lead the series 2-0 after victories in the first two ODIs.advertisement India Today Web Desk New DelhiJanuary 27, 2019UPDATED: January 27, 2019 23:39 IST India won the first two ODIs vs New Zealand comfortably (BCCI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSIndia lead the five-match ODI series 2-0 after victories in the first two matches vs New ZealandIndia and New Zealand play the third ODI of the series on Monday”The way India are playing, I think Virat Kohli will return home with an unbeatable 3-0 lead,” Azhar saidFormer India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin is mighty impressed with the way Indian team has performed in the ongoing one day international series in New Zealand. India produced clinical shows in the first two ODIs in Napier and Mount Maunganui to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. The third match of the series will be played in Mount Maunganui on Monday.”I think 5-0. The way New Zealand are currently playing, I don’t think they will be able to win any match. But nothing is impossible in one day cricket,” Azharuddin told Sports Tak.Azharuddin also termed India a much better side compared to New Zealand, who are No.3 in the ICC ODI team rankings.”The India team is playing so good that it is compelling New Zealand to make mistakes. We thought New Zealand would put a fight but our team is a few steps ahead of them. We are a better side in terms of batting and bowling…I think there’s a scope for improvement in the fielding department,” he said.Azhar also batted for players like Shubman Gill to be given a chance in the fourth and fifth ODIs if India go on to take a 3-0. The two teams will meet again on Monday for the third match of the series.Virat Kohli will return home after the third ODI and in his absence Rohit Sharma will lead the side in the remaning two matches and the three-match Twenty20 series.”The way India are playing, I think Virat Kohli will return home with an unbeatable 3-0 lead. And if that happens, India can experiment in the final two ODIs. Players like Shubman Gill and other who have not been given a chance yet may play. Vijay Shankar hasn’t batted yet and I think he should be part of the final two ODIs. I believe Pandya should be promoted up to bat at No.4 in the final two ODIs. He is a capable batsman. We have to think out of the box and if he plays well at No.4, it’s good for India. I want new players to be given the chance after 3-0,” he said.advertisementAzhar also said Rishabh Pant should be included in the side in place of Ambati Rayudu during the World Cup.”I think Rishabh Pant should play in place of Ambati Rayudu in the World Cup. No doubt, Rayudu has played well so far but when you go for the World Cup your each and every player should be best. I believe, Pant should be given a chance. Kedar Jadhav can bat at No.4 and Pant lower down the order,” Azhar said.Former India cricketer Madan Lal said he was “disappointed” with the way New Zealand played so far in the series.”I think New Zealand is in shock. They are facing one of the best bowling attacks in the world. They failed to play 50 overs in both the matches. There’s no game plan as such. I think, they have lacked temperament and also have not applied themseleves the way the should have. Anything can happen in ODIs. It’s not that they cannot make a comeback in the series,” Madan Lal said.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

iPhone 11, iPhone XR 2 in 2019 may come with better selfie camera, a new 3-camera system

first_imgiPhone 11, iPhone XR 2 in 2019 may come with better selfie camera, a new 3-camera systemThe new iPhones, which could be part of iPhone 11 series, may launch in September this year. For now, not much is known about the upcoming iPhones but an analyst says that Apple is going to put improved cameras in these phones.advertisement India Today Tech New DelhiApril 19, 2019UPDATED: April 22, 2019 08:19 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe next iPhone is likely to be called the iPhone 11 or the iPhone XI. It will possibly launch in September.The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR successors will come with new 12-megapixel selfie camera.There is also a possibility that Apple may include a wide-angle lens on the upcoming iPhone 11 alongside the existing zoom and regular lens.Camera performance is one of the key features in a phone and at a time when the phones like the Galaxy S10 (Review) and the Huawei P30 Pro (Review) are giving users some impressive camera hardware, Apple is now expected to improve and add new features to the camera system in the upcoming iPhone 11. We don’t know what Apple will call the next iPhone, if it will be the iPhone XI or the iPhone 11. But courtesy analyst Ming-Chi Kuo we know that Apple plans to improve the selfie camera in this year’s iPhone.Kua says that apart from putting a higher resolution 12-megapixel selfie camera in the upcoming iPhone 11, Apple is also going to give a third camera to the successors of the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. This third camera will use a 12-megapixel sensor specially developed by Sony for Apple and it will be paired with a wide-angle lens. Android phones like the Huawei P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 already come with such a wide-angle lens camera, and it is expected that the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro may also feature one such camera.Kua in his analyst note also talks of the upcoming iPhone XR (Review) successor — likely to be called the iPhone XR 2 — that will get the same dual-camera setup that the current iPhone XS and the iPhone Xs Max use. Currently, the iPhone XR has a single lens camera on the rear.All three upcoming iPhones — the iPhone XR2, the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Max — will have same 12-megapixel selfie camera.advertisementKuo also notes that Apple is trying to figure out a way to use a lens coated with black film on the selfie cameras on the upcoming iPhone so they will match the colours of bezel and will look in “inconspicuous”. Other than the camera details, Kuo doesn’t spill any other bits about the iPhone 11 for now. It is expected that the new iPhones will look similar to the current iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR. They will also sport screens that have the similar sizes of 5.8 inches, 6.1-inches and 6.5-inches.It is certain that the iPhone 11 will be powered by Apple A13 processor, which Apple is reportedly already making using 7nm fab technology at TSMC. The screen of the iPhone XS successor will use OLED panel while the iPhone XR screen will use LCD technology. It is also certain that the new iPhones will use iOS 13, which is likely to be revealed at WWDC in the first week of June.The new iPhone 11 is likely to be launched in September. India launch should be either in late September or early October, likely a week or two after the global launch.ALSO READ | Apple may launch refreshed iPhone 8 with cheaper price in March 2020, leak suggestsALSO READ | iPhone XR smart battery case review: Effective but you don’t need it for this iPhoneGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
