Another season of Syracuse sports begins with seven men’s and women’s sports at the start of the school year. Syracuse football is ranked in the preseason coaches’ poll, women’s basketball was ranked No. 10 in an early ESPN list and SU men’s basketball faces multiple rivals in the beginning of its schedule.Here are the top five sporting events to attend at Syracuse this fall:1. Syracuse football vs. Clemson, Sept. 14, 7:30 p.m. Syracuse football’s home openers in the last two seasons have been against Central Connecticut State and Wagner, respectively. In 2019, the defending national champions return to New York for the Carrier Dome’s first football game of the season. College GameDay hasn’t released its location for Week 3, but Syracuse is a likely destination. The Carrier Dome is sold out, and both teams are likely to be ranked entering the clash. Syracuse pulled off a historic upset the last time the Tigers came to the Dome. Quarterback Eric Dungey carried the Orange past the defending national champions, 27-24, in 2017. Last season, the Orange went to Memorial Stadium in Clemson and led by 10 points with 12 minutes remaining before Clemson’s then-third string quarterback Chase Brice led two touchdown drives to win the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo team in the nation has played Clemson tougher than SU in the last two seasons, and while the Orange will be underdogs yet again, fourth-year head coach Dino Babers has shown an ability to pull off significant upsets with the Orange. 2. Syracuse basketball vs. Virginia, Nov. 6 Syracuse football opens its home schedule with the defending national champions. Basketball does too. As a part of the launch of the ACC Network in 2019 — along with the conference’s expansion to a 20-game schedule — one opening ACC game will be played before nonconference play begins.Virginia is headed to the Carrier Dome as the first game of the Orange’s season. Both teams are replacing their top talent, as SU lost Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett, while UVA had three players — De’Andre Hunter, Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome — who were drafted in the NBA Draft. The Cavaliers have thrashed the Orange in their last two trips to the Dome. Virginia made 18-of-25 threes in March en route to a 79-53 win. In 2018, UVA held SU to 44 points in a 15-point victory. 3. Syracuse basketball vs. Iowa, Dec. 3 Syracuse basketball will host Iowa on Tuesday, Dec. 3 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The Orange are 3-3 since joining the ACC in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, and have won two straight. The Hawkeyes earned a No. 10 seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament, defeating Cincinnati in round one before falling in overtime to No. 2-seed Tennessee. According to KenPom.com, Iowa is the second-best team on SU’s nonconference schedule. Two seasons ago, Tyus Battle hit a critical corner three with less than a minute left to propel the Orange past Maryland. Without that three, SU would’ve likely missed the NCAA Tournament, preventing its Sweet 16 run. Conference play usually decides the Orange’s tournament fate, but Iowa presents a chance for SU to grab a win over an additional postseason team.Amy Nakamura | Co-Digital Editor4. Syracuse women’s basketball vs. Oregon The Orange traveled to Eugene at the start of the 2018-19 season and lost a 75-73 thriller that came down to the final possession. As part of an agreed home-and-home, SU will host the Ducks in 2019-20. The Orange were upset in the second round of the NCAA tournament on their home floor in March by South Dakota State, but are ranked No. 10 in ESPN’s early Top 25 rankings. Oregon point guard Sabrina Ionescu won the Wade Trophy and Wooden Award, two honors given to the best player in college basketball. The 5-foot-11 point guard averaged 19.9 points and 8.2 assists per game in her junior season. Oregon earned a No. 2 seed in March, losing to Baylor in the Final Four.The Orange look to be national contenders again, and the Ducks will be their toughest home test of the nonconference slate. The time and date of the game have yet to be officially announced. 5. Syracuse men’s soccer vs. Louisville, Sept. 13One day before SU football hosts Clemson in the Carrier Dome, Syracuse men’s soccer plays its biggest home game of the 2019 season. Louisville finished the 2018 season ranked No. 3 in RPI and began the 2019 season No. 14 in the preseason United Soccer Coaches poll.Syracuse begins its conference schedule with the Cardinals, and kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13. The Orange played the Cardinals to a 2-2 tie in Louisville last season, and lost 2-1 at home in 2017. While the Orange play No. 4 Wake Forest, No. 6 North Carolina and No. 10 Duke all on the road, the Cardinals are the highest-ranked team headed to SU Soccer Stadium in the fall. 2018 leading goal scorer Tajon Buchanan was drafted by the MLS’ New England Revolution, but the Orange’s other top goal scorers — Massimo Ferrin, Sondre Norheim and Ryan Raposo — will return.

Minister of Culture, Gender Affairs, Entertainment and Sports Olivia Grange describes the West Indies men’s team as “true and worthy champions” after they became the first team to win the ICC T20 World Cup twice.Grange also congratulated the women’s team for winning their first-ever ICC T20 Women’s World Cup, calling it “a giant step forward for women in sport”.”It is really a historic occasion and I’m really happy that I’m the minister at this time. We won the Under-19 World Cup and now added the men’s and women’s ICC T20 World titles,” said Grange.The Caribbean men edged a pulsating four-wicket win over England in the grand showdown at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, India, with Carlos Brathwaite smashing four mighty sixes in the final over.IMMENSE PRESSURE”Like every West Indian, I was nervous, too, with 19 runs required from the final over. But Carlos Brathwaite showed that he has a big, big heart. He believes in himself, and his calmness under such immense pressure is indicative of his quality and sheer class. Marlon Samuels was outstanding as well. It was his innings that was pivotal in making this victory possible.But overall, this team has proven throughout the tournament that they are true and worthy champions and it’s a victory most deserving for the entire region and all West Indians around the world,” said Grange.West Indies Women defeated their Australian counterparts by eight wickets in the earlier final.”Today is another giant step forward and a great moment for women in sports, especially for those of us from the Caribbean,” the minister said.”I must reserve special praise, though, for women’s team captain Stafanie Taylor, who I know personally as a little girl growing up in Gordon Pen in my constituency.”As the first woman to lead the West Indies ladies to their first-ever world title, she’s now a part of history that can never be eclipsed.”Grange added: “I am also pleased to tell the country that I will be resuscitating and fast-tracking plans for the Stafanie Taylor Oval at Eltham High School.”Continuing, she said: “We must not overlook the contributions of the West Indies Cricket Board, the coaching and management staff, the sponsors and ardent fans. They have all played their part in this momentous occasion for West Indies cricket, which, undoubtedly, remains an emblem of regional integration, pride and joy.”

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting mike kirkwood While Hyper-V is included with the cost of Windows Server 2008 R2, centralized management features and dynamic migration will cost extra through Microsoft’s Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).Hyper-V is making significant progress as a product, but it also seems that it will take Microsoft a few years to evolved Hyper-V into a real contender in the market It may start getting traction for shops predominantly using Microsoft technology today and have deep relationships to the mothership. Last week, Microsoft announced a significant partnership and investment with HP that focuses on optimizing hardware and software solutions. Microsoft and HP are developing patterns where virtualization, SQL Sever, and Exchange server are deployed together and optimized in both hardware, software, and OS. This is a key competitive offering for enterprises.SummaryMicrosoft is a logical leader in this space and can’t be considered out of the race. The partnerships and investments in the channel will likely pay off. Hyper-V is growing features and has a distinct advantage in reaching customers through the natural relationships Microsoft has in the enterprise.Citrix XENServer is a real option and is competing on price and features. The product is backed by a leader in the desktop virtualization space, Citrix. Considering the array of features offered in the free product, it is definitely worth taking a close look at.For full featured end-to-end server virtualization, it is hard to beat VMware. VMware solutions have the features, performance and price. Whether your needs are on the low end or high end VMware is there. If you are on the high end, it won’t come cheap but VMware knows they still have a considerable lead in the market for features customers want. Considering the price to get started, it may be worth it to try each of them out with your team to see which fits best with your environment. What do you think, is free a good price for server virtualization?Photo credit: pfala Virtualization technology can improve the cost efficiency of the data center by running servers at higher utilization. Deploying virtual servers can yield a more energy efficient data center and reduce the total footprint of a computing environment.Although IT managers have started adopting virtualization for critical infrastructure, reports such as the poll conducted by Network Instruments in 2009 and reported on by Information World suggest that many IT managers could not confirm that they got the expected savings by virtualizing their environment. In that context, it is very nice to report that all of the key virtualization software vendors provide free or low-cost solutions that can be deployed and managed by IT teams. These solutions can be deployed in production environments so that teams can get started and determine for themselves if it is appropriate for their environment to host applications on virtual servers.VMwareVirtualization technology has evolved considerable over the past years. The market-leader, VMware has been adding features and improving the performance of their offerings, including addressing applications that use intensive I/O operations and offering robust management tools. The free ESXi version is a low-cost solution in the market that is useful for many scenarios. While ESXi does not include vCenter (formerly virtual center, centralized management tool for managing multiple VMware physical servers) or VMotion (dynamic migration) or clustering, in most cases these issues are easily addressed with proper planning. These features are clearly in the upgrade path for teams that need them.We interviewed Tom Moore, an IT leader who has managed virtual production environments working for a Global Fortune 100 company for over eight years. We asked him to characterize his teams use of the free VMware ESXi. His team considered this when his organization was faced with a budget crunch, he said it was a “no brainer” to switch from full ESX to ESXi instead of open source XEN that’s baked into various Linux distributions. “Also, for the minimal charge of couple hundred dollars you can add vCenter support to ESXi, which is cheap compared to the thousands of dollars per CPU to get the full VMware product now called vSphere,” he said.Moore continued, “As a standard approach, our company has switched to ESXi when high availability features like VMware clustering and VMotion are not required. Use of a load balancer in front of your VMware farm is sufficient in most cases. This was our approach at before VMware even had ESX and clustering built into the product.”Offering ESXi proves to be a good starting place for organizations looking for a solution that provides higher density and the team is ready to design the environment around the pieces the free offering doesn’t offer.Citrix XENServerCitrix XENServer states its path into the enterprise: Enterprise-class. Cloud-proven. Free. A quote from their website:“Citrix XenServer is the only enterprise-class, cloud-proven server virtualization platform that delivers the critical features of live migration and centralized multi-server management at no cost.”Citrix XENServer’s free solution supports clustering and dynamic migration. Adding more features into the free solution is a competitive edge that Citrix brings to managers considering XENSever in the data center. This alone might be a good reason to consider it for a high availability environment on a budget. One key area to consider is the XENServer management tools. These features are still evolving to meet the level of sophistication that VMware offers. For some, it might not be worth the trade-off. However, Citrix XENServer does provide a lot of features that are attractive in the free product.

The company has been playing catch up in this area and is diligently working through hard issues such as pricing, licensing and product features.Microsoft’s Window Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V has gained traction with key customers and has been focused on key features like live migration as its pull for adoption in the data center. “With Hyper-V, it’s easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization through Windows Server 2008 R2.

The Hurricanes trailed by 25 when he hit his only bucket.Anthony Lawrence and Ebuka Izundu scored 15 points each for the Hurricanes (12-16, 4-12). They have lost nine of 12 and haven’t won a road game in more than 12 months.“For the first time all season, I thought our emotions were maybe a little bit out of control,” coach Jim Larranaga said. “We couldn’t calm ourselves down to make a free throw or a shot or make a good pass or good decision.”BIG PICTUREMiami: Asking the depleted Hurricanes to snap their yearlong road losing streak at Cameron seemed like a tall order — even against a Duke team missing its headliner. Miami fell to 0-9 on the road this season, 0-8 in the conference and were playing four days after blowing a 10-point lead in the final 2 minutes of a loss at Wake Forest. It’s effectively come to this for the Hurricanes — either win at Virginia Tech next week, or carry their road slide into 2019-20.Duke: Barrett averages an ACC-best 23.3 points, has led the league in scoring virtually all season and has shouldered the scoring load in Williamson’s absence. Barrett entered averaging 24 points, eight rebounds and six assists while shooting 51 percent, and with his godfather — two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash — sitting behind the Duke bench, he finished three assists shy of his second triple-double in two weeks.“With Zion being out, everybody kind of gets the ball more, everybody has to make more plays,” Barrett said.ZION WATCHCoach Mike Krzyzewski says there is “no time pressure” on Williamson, adding that the star freshman and second-leading scorer in the ACC “hasn’t done anything with contact” since he was injured in the opening minute of a loss to North Carolina on Feb. 21. “We’re not in any hurry or whatever,” Krzyzewski said.UP NEXT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting After Roy Williams falls and leaves, No. 5 UNC outlasts Clemson 1 dead, 3 injured in Quezon road crash Duke’s Jack White (41) reacts with the crowd following his 3-point basket against Miami during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Durham, N.C., Saturday, March 2, 2019.

Twitter/@BleacherReportMidway through the fourth quarter of Saturday’s Big 12 showdown between Baylor and Oklahoma, Bears safety Terrell Burt went down with what Kirk Herbstreit, on air, called a “bush league” flop. As it turns out, Burt’s injury was legit, and Herbstreit later apologized for his comments on Twitter. Today, Burt took to the platform, and made sure to let everyone know that he’d do something like that.I will never ever fake an injury. I will always fight for my brothers and give them my all regardless. #BaylorNation #lionhearted— Terrell Burt (@terrell_burt_13) November 16, 2015Burt had reportedly been injured on a prior play, but did not want to come out of the game, so teammate Ryan Reid had to tell him to go down to receive treatment.
