Both reports quote an anonymous ACC official, who said 10 other schools have reached out to the conference as well. As of late Saturday night, USA Today is reporting that the ACC has approved the addition of both schools. SU Athletic Director Daryl Gross declined to comment on Friday and Saturday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Big East Director of Communications Chuck Sullivan said the conference and the commissioner, John Marinatto, had no comment. Calls to Pittsburgh Athletic Director Steve Pederson and Mike Finn, the ACC associate commissioner for football communications, were not immediately returned. This news comes one week after the ACC presidents voted to unanimously increase the fee to leave the conference. The fee was raised to $20 million. It’s also just one week after the Southeastern Conference voted to accept Texas A&M as its 13th member. If the Orange and the Panthers leave the Big East, it won’t be the first time the ACC has absorbed members of the conference. Miami, Virginia Tech and Boston College all left the Big East for the ACC in 2003. Pittsburgh joined the Big East in 1982. Syracuse is a founding member of the conference.

He’s hitting .733for the year and doing a great job behind the plate when he’s not on the mound.Green said Dexter Norris is hitting .417 and setting the table for our offense at the leadoff spot. Grant Smith, Colter Silhan, Derek Williams and Kurt Sloan are doing nice thing for Oxford as well.“We need to get some of the younger, inexperienced kids, in the bottom part of our order to grow a little bit,” Green said.In the Central game, Oxford Â took a 1-0 Â and 4-1 lead to eventually win 7-5. But in game two, Central opened a 6-0 lead and Oxford could not recover.“We did a nice job in Game 1 of putting the ball in play and doing the little things,” Green said. “Game 2 was a different story. Oggie Shimkus, who is a junior, struggled a little bit early on the mound, but settled down later. He’s rather green in terms of pitching. This is the first year I’ve run him out there for more than a handful of innings”Oxford will battle Sedan on Monday. Silhan Game 1 – Oxford 7 Central 5 Close Forgot password?

A 26-year-old woman, who is no stranger to the court, was on Friday further remanded to prison by Magistrate Leron Daly on two charges – assault and threatening language – when she appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Lisa Bobb of Royal Drive, Campbellville, Georgetown, denied both charges.The court heard that on June 6, 2018, while being a prisoner at the East La Penitence Police Station, she unlawfully and maliciously wounded another female inmate, Cydella Blair.A second charge stated that on June 4, 2018, while being in custody at the said Police station, she used threatening language to Blair.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield objected to bail being granted in this matter since the accused is incarcerated for an attempted murder among other charges that are pending.Magistrate Daly agreed with the prosecution and remanded the woman to prison.However, Blair was also charged with assaulting and using threatening language against Bobb.She pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on $30,000 bail.The matter is expected to continue on June 11.Bobb was charged for wounding her cousin, Christel Bobb with intent to commit murder.The court heard that the Virtual Complainant, Christel Bobb, and Lisa Bobb are cousins who have reportedly had several misunderstandings in the past.On February 14, 2018, at Royal Drive, Campbellville, Christel had just returned home when she was allegedly pounced upon by Lisa, who dealt her a stab to her upper left arm. This attack reportedly stemmed from a misunderstanding the cousins had the previous night.Christel was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where she was admitted a patient.
