Without its starting quarterback and running back for the second straight game, Syracuse got blown out at home, 42-14, in its final game of the 2017 season. Boston College (7-5, 4-4 Atlantic Coast), a bowl-eligible team that had already beaten Preseason Top 25 teams in Louisville and Florida State, beat the Orange (4-8, 2-6) convincingly on Saturday afternoon in front of an announced attendance of 30,302.Here are three quick reactions to the game.No-win NovemberWith the loss, Syracuse fell to 0-8 over the past two Novembers. The Orange has not won a game in the month since beating Boston College two years ago this weekend in former head coach Scott Shafer’s sendoff victory. The Syracuse senior class is the first since 2009 to graduate without appearing in a bowl game, as the Orange lost its final five games of the year. Its last win came in the Carrier Dome on Oct. 13 against then-No. 2 Clemson. Over the final 10 quarters of the 2017 season, SU was outscored 114-29.The AJ Dillon showAdvertisementThis is placeholder textDillon, a 6-foot, 240-pound true freshman running back, proved to be one of Syracuse’s toughest tailbacks faced all year. He entered Saturday averaging 5.1 yards per carry to go along with 10 rushing touchdowns, including four in a 272-yard showing at Louisville. In his last three games, he ran for 149, 196 and 200 yards, respectively. Saturday against the depleted Syracuse defense, he erupted for 193 yards and three touchdowns.In his footstepsSyracuse senior wide receiver Steve Ishmael broke a pair of program records Saturday. First, he snapped Amba Etta-Tawo’s single-season receptions record of 94, which Etta-Tawo set a year ago in a rout at Clemson. Then Ishmael, on the final touchdown catch of his college career, broke Marvin Harrison’s career receiving yards record (2,728). Ishmael idolized Harrison as a kid, and he broke his idol’s record in his final game at Syracuse. Ishmael finished the day with 11 catches for 187 yards.

18 Nov 2014 PowaKaddy and England Golf gift trolleys to support disabled golfers England Golf and PowaKaddy have given electric trolleys to several of the country’s golf-related disability groups to help improve access to the game. England Golf presented PowaKaddy electric trolleys, which had been used by its top amateur golfers playing in some of the world’s most prestigious events, to England Deaf Golf, England and Wales Blind Golf and the Disabled Golf Association. Each group was given the freedom to determine who would be awarded each individual trolley and all used the opportunity to increase engagement with their members and promote their involvement in golf. For instance, England Deaf Golf chose to award its trolleys as prizes to the winners of the 2014 England Deaf Golf Open, while England and Wales Blind Golf Association put its allocation to use during this year’s Auld Enemies match against Scotland, from which it emerged victorious (pictured). England Golf Disability Manager Jamie Blair was delighted that the trolleys have been used to encourage participation in the sport amongst disabled golfers. He said: “I would like to thank PowaKaddy for their generous donation. England Golf is proud to recognise that it is not just non-disabled players who represent England throughout the golfing year. A number of disability golf organisations compete on national, European and world stages throughout the year. “Disabled golfers and those with a long-term limiting condition account for 10% of those playing once a week in England and I know that the trolleys will go to good use and Powakaddy’s recognition of those playing the game, not just elite golfers, is great to see. “The disability golf organisations run tournaments and are always looking for support for events and for their players. It is the long-term ambition for England Golf to provide support for talented disabled players competing at these levels.” As official trolley supplier to England Golf, PowaKaddy presents a fleet of its state-of-the-art electric trolleys to both men’s and women’s squads ahead of the golf season each year. This year, the nation’s elite amateurs received the outstanding FW7 model, which has been met with widespread acclaim from media, retailers and the public, alike. PowaKaddy chairman John deGraft-Johnson spoke of his pride in seeing trolleys once used by the country’s rising stars help to promote and support disability golf. He said: “Everyone at PowaKaddy takes great pleasure in knowing that we are supporting amateur golf at the highest level as Official Trolley Supplier to England Golf. “We are just as delighted to know that the equipment no longer required by the national squads is being put to great use by various disability golf associations, providing a tremendous opportunity for their members to enjoy our great game.”
Facebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by The Evergreen State CollegeEvery day, technology continues to profoundly impact our lives—especially the careers of today’s college students. Further exploring the state of technology today, The Evergreen State College is hosting a lecture series on computing issues called Greeners on the Cutting Edge, focusing on Evergreen students’ roles in the future of technology.The lecture series kicked off March 31st and continues with a lecture each week until June 2nd and is a part of the ongoing PLATO Lecture Series. This series is offered every year at Evergreen by faculty who bring outside speakers to Evergreen to address computing issues that are of broad interest to the campus community.“This particular series is a celebration of Evergreen graduates who are ‘on the cutting edge’,” said Judy Cushing, computer science faculty at Evergreen and organizer of the series. “We really wanted to show current Evergreen students some possible lives after Evergreen, and demonstrate to those in the community the success of our graduates. Some, but not all, of the speakers studied computer science here at Evergreen. All are highly successful.”Topics include software quality, the intersections between technology and social justice, and education for job skills (presented by Lynda.com co-founder and Evergreen graduate Lynda Weinman). Designer and artist Dylan Sisson will present the next lecture in the series on advances in CGI technology on April 14th.The lectures will take place every Monday of Evergreen’s spring quarter at 1:30 p.m. in Lecture Hall 1 on Evergreen’s Olympia campus. More information, including the lineup and lecture topics, can be found at http://blogs.evergreen.edu/sosw/lectures/The series is funded by software development royalties paid to the College by Control Data Corp, for John Aikin’s development (with students) of Computer Aided Instruction and is named after the influential PLATO programming language, which led to great advances in computer technology.
