He’s Heisman-worthy

first_img “Maurice Drew is so elusive, so shifty, and he makes so many big plays,” Bruins receiver Marcus Everett said. “I think he’s the best player in the Pac-10. He’s just a great player.” Drew’s 299 all-purpose yards – 65 rushing, 52 receiving, 20 on kickoff returns and 162 on punt returns – was the second-highest total in Division I this season, and earned him the Walter Camp offensive player of the week award. A little more than two hours after UCLA tailback Maurice Drew compiled his latest one-game highlight film, the e-mails began flowing from the sports information staff touting the junior as a Heisman Trophy candidate. After the final play of the most memorable game the Bruins played under third-year coach Karl Dorrell, players followed suit by claiming Drew, who matched his school record with five touchdowns, is Heisman campaign-worthy. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 In UCLA’s 47-40 victory against No. 10 Cal at the Rose Bowl on Saturday, Drew averaged 14.2 yards on his 21 touches. His effort enabled UCLA to climb eight spots in the Associated Press poll to No. 12, its highest ranking since 2001. The Bruins are also No. 12 in the coaches’ poll, and according to the release sent out by UCLA, “Drew is playing himself into Heisman Trophy consideration.” Drew is eighth nationally in all-purpose yards at 172.4 per game, tied for the NCAA lead with 14.4 points per game and leads the nation in punt returns at 33.8 yards per attempt. “That dude is amazing,” said UCLA tight end Marcedes Lewis, an All-American candidate. “I don’t know the word for that guy. He’s the real deal. When you have a running back like that, it makes everyone’s job easier. He does everything. What can’t he do? Return team, running back, receiver? He can do it all.” Drew’s 12 touchdowns match his career high, and his average scoring play is 28.4 yards. His three punt-return touchdowns this season, and four in his career, tie Pac-10 and school records. And more special things could be on the way. Dorrell hinted Drew could join the kick-return unit permanently. “Whenever we needed a play made, he stepped up and made a play,” Dorrell said. “He’s just one of those guys that when the ball is in his hands, he makes plays. He has incredible ability.” center_img Drew ran for 322 yards and five touchdowns last season at Washington. It was a spectacular day for the 205-pounder, who would have to be accused of heightening to reach the 5-foot-8 he’s listed at, but it came against the downtrodden Huskies, and for a mediocre UCLA team. Drew’s breakout against the Bears came on national television, against a top-10 team expected to be top-ranked USC’s toughest regular-season challenge, and helped UCLA win a game in which it looked overmatched for much of the night. Drew showed off his power with his first score when he bowled over Cal defensive back Harrison Smith at the goal line on a 12-yard run, and added a 1-yard touchdown later in the half. He showcased his speed with a 69-yard punt return in the first quarter, then added an 81-yarder for a score midway through the third to give the Bruins their first lead, 28-27. In the closing minutes, Drew demonstrated his versatility when he caught a swing pass, raced to the sideline and beat Smith to the corner of the end zone for a go-ahead 28-yard score, putting UCLA in front 41-40. He capped the night with his 2-yard run as time expired. “We let Maurice Drew get loose too many times,” Cal coach Jeff Tedford said. “Every week he’s a key factor. You just try to limit him. He runs the ball very well. He’s a good receiver out of the backfield. He’s a great kick returner. “In open space with people spread out, the guy is very, very difficult to tackle. (His performance) was very impressive, no question about it.” Brian Dohn, (818) 713-3607 brian.dohn@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

RSS Reader Market in Disarray, Continues to Decline

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Tags:#Analysis#RSS & Feeds#RSS Readers#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… One of the interesting trends of 2009 has been the gradual decline of RSS Readers as a way for people to keep up with news and niche topics. Many of us still use them, but less than we used to. I for one still maintain a Google Reader account, however I don’t check it on a daily basis. I check Twitter for news and information multiple times a day, I monitor Twitter lists, and I read a number of blogs across a set of topics of most interest to me. Frankly I’m more likely to use Google Reader to search for specific information nowadays, than to scan my subscribed feeds for their latest posts. So what’s happened to RSS Readers. Do people still use them and is there still a viable market for them?In February 2007 we reported on the state of the RSS Reader market, based on statistics from Feedburner and Pheedo. At that point Google had 59% market share amongst web-based RSS Readers, followed by Bloglines with 33%, then Newsgator and Netvibes with 3% (note: this didn’t count Newsgator’s desktop apps, like FeedDemon). Pheedo’s stats in February 2007 were somewhat different: Newsgator Online had 27% share, followed by MyYahoo! with 20%, Blogines 19% and Google Reader 13%.The first time ReadWriteWeb looked into market share for RSS Readers was 5 years ago, in December 2004. At that point, very early in the web 2.0 era, Bloglines was the clear leader and Google Reader wasn’t even a glint in the milkman’s eye. 2009 Update on RSS Reader MarketWell, unfortunately Feedburner no longer publishes any useful data about RSS Readers. The product has been infrequently updated since Google acquired it in June 2007 and it no longer even has a proper blog (a Google blog called Adsense For Feeds was the closest I could find).Pheedo also has gone quiet from a blogging perspective – its last blog post was January 2009. Tellingly though, it has an active Twitter account.The best data we have then is ReadWriteWeb’s own Feedburner account. Here is the top 10 for Dec 09:1. Google Feedfetcher 85665 (includes both Google Reader and its start page iGoogle)2. Bloglines 387973. Netvibes 348944. FriendFeed 162695. NewsGator Online 67536. Firefox Live Bookmarks 29997. PostRank 24548. Windows RSS Platform 15879. Mac OS X RSS Reader 130710. Zhuaxia 1127 (a Chinese RSS Reader)Feedburner’s numbers always need to be taken with a large grain of salt, nevertheless we can see that Google is now over twice the number of Bloglines. There’s little sign of life on Bloglines’ blog either and its Compete.com traffic numbers show a decline since June 2009. richard macmanus 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Netvibes, FriendFeed, Newsgator and PostRank are the only other english language competitors showing in our Feedburner numbers. The others are either browser (Firefox) or operating system readers.Also note that Newsgator shut down its online RSS Reader at the end of July this year.Conclusion: Google Dominates, RSS Readers Less RelevantThese statistics are by no means the definitive RSS Reader market numbers. They do clearly show two things though:1) Google now dominates what’s left of the RSS Reader market. Bloglines is hanging in there, but it seems like it’s given up the fight judging by lack of activity in its blog and traffic dips.2) RSS reading is a very fragmented experience circa 2009. People can monitor news and information via Twitter, Facebook, start pages like Netvibes, their Firefox bookmarks, their OS, aggregators like Techmeme, and so on. Tell us in the comments how you currently read your RSS feeds and how often you check them in an RSS Reader – if indeed you still use one…Update: I should add that our news writers use a variety of RSS Readers daily.last_img read more
