decompact the outfield at both venues, wh antworten

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Trevor Knight and the Texas A&M offense took some time to get started Saturday, but when the Aggies got going, they were tough to slow down.Knight threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score in a 67-0 rout of Prairie View A&M.Knight finished 21 of 37 and threw touchdowns of 8 yards to Speedy Noil and 34 and 64 yards to Christian Kirk in the second quarter as the 20th-ranked Aggies (2-0) built a 38-0 halftime lead. Knight also ran for a 78 yards on seven carries in just over one half of play.We didnt start as quickly as I hoped we would, Knight said. Theres not a lot of explanation for that besides execution. We have to execute better out of the gates. We settled in obviously and got some big plays going, especially in that second quarter and to start the third quarter.The Aggies extended their home non-conference win streak to 23 games and are 2-0 for the fourth straight season.As a coach, when you set out and have a plan -- not necessarily Xs and Os plan but what you ask guys to do -- and that happens, you feel good about it, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. The key to any successful team is to be able to duplicate that week in and week out.Texas A&M outgained the Panthers 672-205 in earning its largest shutout since defeating Missouri 73-0 on Sept. 18, 1993.Shutouts are hard to come by, Texas A&M cornerback Nick Harvey, who also had a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown, said. Getting a shutout doesnt happen every day. We feel great right now, but we made some mistakes.Texas A&M managed a 22-yard field goal in the first 10 minutes before busting the game open over the final 18 minutes of the half.Keith Ford, who had two touchdowns, had an 11-yard scoring run with three minutes left in the opening quarter before Knight tight-roped the sideline for the final 5 yards of a 32-yard TD scamper to end the first.With us, its getting up to our tempo, Kirk said. All we need is one explosive play to get us going. Once we get that first explosive play, we take advantage of the tempo and get right back on to the ball and start running our plays.Prairie View (1-1), which plays in the FCS Southwestern Athletic Conference, had a 38-yard field goal blocked and missed a 42-yard field goal in the first half.We knew going into it that we were going to have to play above ourselves to have a chance against a top 20 SEC program, Prairie View coach Willie Simmons said. I thought they competed for 60 minutes. They didnt quit. We have them our best punch, and thats all you can ask for.Trey Green threw for 160 yards on 13 of 39 passing, but the Aggies defense had pressure on Green throughout the game.TAKEAWAYTEXAS A&M: The Aggies played well in every facet of the game ahead of their SEC opener. The first-team offense was balanced, while the defense kept pressure on Prairie View throughout. The lone miscue was a Knight interception in the end zone to end a drive in the second quarter.BY THE NUMBERSPRAIRIE VIEW A&M: Demarquo LaStrappe caught six passes for 88 yards. The Panthers totaled 32 rushing yards led by Dawonya Tuckers 28 yards.TEXAS A&M: Kirk had 106 yards receiving on five catches to go with his two touchdowns. The Aggies had 30 first downs. The defense finished with two sacks, including a safety.THEY SAID ITWe put 67 points on the board and pitched a shutout on the defensive side, Knight said. Thats about us. Do I think we can still improve in so many different areas? Yes. We didnt play our best game of football today.UP NEXTPRAIRIE VIEW A&M: The Panthers will travel to Alabama A&M Sept. 17.TEXAS A&M: The Aggies start SEC play with the first of three away from Kyle Field when they go to Auburn Sept. 17.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Nike Shoes China . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October.

While all eyes are on the pitch for Durbans first-ever Test match in August, peripheral vision will move to the outfield which has failed to recover completely since being relaid last month.After a limited-overs series between both teams last year, members of both sides had complained about the condition of the outfields in Durban and Centurion. They found the ground uncomfortable because it was too hard and asked if something could be done to soften it ahead of this years Test series. CSA agreed to decompact the outfield at both venues, which essentially involves removing sand and grass and relaying it. However, the process took place too late in Durban and the outfield was too deeply dug up to be ready in time for the Test. As a result, the outfield is an eyesore: patchy with several areas of scant grass and significant sand.The digging happened too deep and too late and thats why it looks the way it does now, an insider told ESPNcricinfo. Overall, it may be softer, but its definitely not pristine.Work was done at SuperSport Park as soon as the season ended in April, but could not get underway in Kingsmead at the same time because it is the end point of the Comrades Marathon, whiich was run on May 29.dddddddddddd There would have been no point doing it when you are just going to have 18,000 runners feet on the ground a few weeks later, the source said.Instead, the process only began in mid-June and was completed by July 1, seven weeks before the Test. More than 40 tonnes of sand and grass were removed from the outfield and new grass was grown. It was a bit of a gamble to start that late, but they thought with the warmer climate, the outfield would recover and it was on its way.At the end of July, Durban was hit by severe floods, and the outfield was like a lake. Since then, intermittent drizzle and insufficient sunshine, partly caused by the shadow the grandstand casts over part of the outfield at this time of the year, did not allow the grass to grow as much as it should have.While this will have no impact as such on the pitch, which had a significant grass covering on it the day before the match, it could still play a part in the Test. On rougher ground, the ball will scuff up quicker which may assist in getting reverse-swing. ' ' '
