Time Machine: “Piety win turns to loss at ND”

first_imgEditor’s note: Syracuse lost to Notre Dame off the controversy of the 1961 season. Below is The Daily Orange’s game story re-published.The ball game was over. Syracuse had beaten Notre Dame, 15-14, and 7,200 hoarse, weary, but extremely happy Orange fans were pulling on their coats in the Onondaga War Memorial. They had seen on closed-circuit television a fighting Piety football team surge from two touchdowns behind to edge in front of the equally spirited Irish by a single point.And they had just witnessed the last play of the game, a futile 56-yard field goal attempt by Notre Dame’s Joe Perkowski.But now headlinesman F. G. Skibbie was frantically signaling the game was still in progress. Declaring a roughing the holder penalty on Syracuse, the “victory ball” was snatched from Dick Easterly and returned to play.Second Try GoodAdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe fans in the memorial terminated dressing and watched in partial horror and partial disbelief as Perkowski got set to try again. This time he was on the 30. As the ones crunched together and the tired arms of the visiting linemen reached vainly for the ball, Perkowski booted. The pigskin was only halfway to the posts when the elation of the spectators in the end zone echoed the success of the effort.So now it was over again, and this time for keeps. Notre Dame had the victory ball, and the necessary 17-15 winning margin to go with it.The gridiron was covered with delirious Irish fans, swarming over the green turf and mobbing their heroes. But in Syracuse the fans shuffled quietly and sullenly from the War Memorial. They all seemed to be mulling the same adjective—“unbelievable.”Bowl Hopes SmashedAnd unbelievable it was, but it had happened. Time had run out, yet there was that ball sailing through the uprights and falling into the screaming throng. With it fell Syracuse’s Orange bowl hopes.At first the long fuse which led to the explosive and disastrous climax began to wind its unmerciful path slowly. Notre Dame’s George Sefcik, who was the holder on the final play, and Syracuse’s John Snider matched their educated punting toes throughout the first period as the defensive units dominated play.But Frank Budka, Notre Dame’s flashiy sophomore quarterback, finally found Angelo Daberio all alone in the Orange secondary and hit his little halfback with a 41-yard scoring aerial. Perkowski added the P.A.T., and the Irish fronted 7-0 as the half ended.ND Strikes AgainAt 3:51 of the third stanza Budka struck again. He connected with his favorite target, rangy end Les Traver, for a 25-yard scoring pitch, Perkowski converted again, and the Irish were riding high on the crest of a 14-0 lead.The Orange were desperate, but not out of the game yet. With a fourth down a long one yard to go on their own 43, Dace Sarette played the gambler’s game. He faked the obvious, Davis off tackle, rolled out and threw a strike to big John Mackey.Mackey, one of the outstanding players of the afternoon, galloped all the way into the end zone with his tear-away jersey flying in the face of a defensive halfback Sefcik. Sarette’s rollout flip to Easterly made it 14-8, Notre Dame.Sarette remained in the ball game with the second unit, and early in the fourth period the “victory drive” was underway. From their own 47 the Orange marched steadily goal ward. Then the crowd was silenced as Sarette rolled left at about the Notre Dame 10, was hit and knocked unconscious. He had to be carried from the field.But sophomore Bob Lelli hustled in to replace Dave, and to “get one” for him. A one-yard pass to Easterly did just that, Ericson toed the extra point, and now Syracuse had a 15-14 edge with 10:35 left to play.An exchange of punts, an interception by Easterly, an interception by Snider, and with only 1:31 to go, Syracuse looked home free.17 Seconds LeftThe Orange ate up all but 17 seconds of the clock, but were finally forced to turn the ball over to the Irish on downs at the Notre Dame 30. Budka ran 20 yards to midfield. Then he hit Sefcik at the 39, which was the line of scrimmage for that play which will be one of the most controversial in Piety football history.Davis had been tremendous. The defense had been extra-rugged. Sweeney, Sarette, Snider, Meggyesy—They all played hard. The 1,500 fans that greeted the “losers” at the airport knew it. And they will know it again in 1963 when Notre Dame faces the Orange in New York, with Mr. Skibbie remaining home.

Tom Brady says he’s in ‘uncharted territory’ with Patriots

first_img“I’m really not worried about it. I’m secure for this year, I think,” he said. “At least I get a few first team reps out there. I just go out there and try to do the best I can. … There’s a lot of guys who have one year left on their contract. I’ve got one year to go and we’ll see what happens.”The new deal is a two-year extension through the 2021 season but, according to an ESPN report, the 2020 and 2021 seasons are void years. To further this: the two years of Brady’s extension are void years, per source. This deal is about 2019: Brady gets a raise, while the void years allow the team to create cap space this season.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) August 4, 2019″It’s really the reality for most guys in the NFL,” Brady said. “I don’t want anyone to think I’m any different from everyone else. Football is a tough business. It’s a production business. I’m ready to go this year, and that’s really what matters and that’s where my focus is.” Tom Brady, Patriots nearing 2-year extension worth extra $70 million, report says Bill Belichick vows to be ‘more involved’ with Patriots’ defense “The focus is this year and what we’ve got to do. That’s where I’m focused. That’s all that really matters in the end. That’s what this team expects of me, to put everything into it, like I always have and I’m really excited for the year.”Brady seems unconcerned about any future decisions that will need to be made. Tom Brady may have just inked a new contract with the Patriots, but the veteran quarterback knows he’s in a “unique situation.”Brady will receive an $8 million salary increase this season, a raise from $15 million to $23 million. Patriots receiver Josh Gordon files for reinstatement to NFL However, anything beyond that is still up in the air considering he’s entering his third decade in the NFL at the age of 42.”It’s a unique situation I’m in … my 20th year with the same team, 42 years old, so, pretty much uncharted territory I think for everybody,” Brady told media Monday, via the team’s website. “I’m going to go out there and do the best I can this year and see what happens. … Related Newslast_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Sumner Newscow report — According to an article written in the Wichita Eagle, a 24-year-old woman pleaded guilty Monday to two felony charges for forcing an 11-year-old Haysville girl into a gas station bathroom and ordering her to urinate into a cup so the woman could use the urine to pass a court-ordered drug test.Crystal Hopper, who listed a Wellington address after her arrest, pleaded guilty to interference with parental custody and aggravated endangering a child. She had been scheduled to stand trial this week in Sedgwick County District Court on kidnapping and robbery charges.Prosecutors said the crimes arose from a Haysville Municipal Court case. In court papers, prosecutors said that:On April 10, 2012, Hopper was ordered by a Municipal Court judge to take a drug test, and she was told at 3:20 p.m. that the results were positive. At 4:05 p.m. that day, Hopper returned to the courtroom and said she wanted to take the test again. The test was administered again at 5:30 p.m., and the results this time were negative.On April 11, 2012, the girl told Haysville police that she had been approached by Hopper the day before while walking home from school. The girl said she became frightened when Hopper asked her for some urine. The girl said Hopper forced her into a gas station in the 100 block of West Grand in Haysville and escorted her into a bathroom. Hopper retrieved a cup, returned to the bathroom and obtained the girl’s urine at 3:53 p.m. The girl was then ordered by Hopper to leave.During an interview with detectives on April 24, Hopper admitted taking the urine from the girl. She told detectives, “I don’t know why there was morphine in my urine and, ah, so I asked her to pee in a cup, just in case.”Hopper will be sentenced July 10 by District Judge Joseph Bribiesca.last_img read more
