The performance came after a lineup of hard rock heavy hitters, with Anthrax, Meshuggah, Primus, and Slayer all turning in sets before Tool’s explosive headlining performance.Tool turned in a 10-song performance over their 100-minute set, delivering classics like “Parabola”, “Ænema”, and the epic “Forty-Six & 2”. The band also debuted new arrangements of “Stinkfist” and “Opiate” that surely left hardcore fans satisfied.However, the show almost didn’t happen, as drummer Danny Carey was dealing with some pretty serious health issues right up until show time. Carey performed the set with a very serious staph infection that was causing headaches and pain in his joints throughout his body. See below for an Instagram post from Carey’s bandmate, guitarist Adam Jones, about the serious health issues he was facing.last_img read more

USC hosts Utah State in first home game of the year

first_imgBrian Chin | Daily TrojanHome cookin’ · Redshirt junior quarterback Max Browne starts his first game in the Coliseum against Utah State on Saturday at 11 a.m.USC will face the unranked Utah State Aggies on Saturday, a team the Trojans will struggle with if they fail to adequately prepare and focus on the game.The Aggies (1-0), of the Mountain West Conference, are coming off a season opener in which they handed Weber State a decisive loss, defeating them 45-6 at home. This is Utah State’s first road game. History is on USC’s side as they are 5-0 in their matchups against Utah State, but the Aggies had some spectacular performances last week that the Trojans (0-1) are preparing for.Utah State had dominating displays from their running backs, specifically senior Devante Mays who rushed for 208 yards on 18 carries and scored 3 touchdowns. He earned honorable mention honors for the National Player of the Week. USC’s defense will have to step up as sophomore defensive tackle Noah Jefferson is still listed as questionable for Saturday’s game following a shoulder sprain. Part of the defensive line’s play will be determined by graduate transfer nose tackle Stevie Tu’ikolovatu, who head coach Clay Helton described as a key component in holding up the point.Sophomore inside linebacker Cam Smith was in good form, recording nine tackles against Alabama in his first game back since tearing his ACL in November.“The main thing I saw was we shot ourselves in the foot a lot,” Smith said. “When they had those big plays, that was the main thing. We have a lot to look forward to, but there’s definitely some things to work on.”Alabama had 242 rushing yards, including 32 from freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts. Utah State has a dynamic dual-threat quarterback in junior Kent Myers who earned honorable mention All-Mountain West honors last season. Against Weber State, Myers rushed for 53 yards and threw for 100 yards on 11-17 passing.“I expect him to run a lot,” Smith said. “He’s going to scramble and make anything he can get. He likes to use his feet, so I’m expecting that a lot.”Myers was one of five Aggies who rushed for 50 or more yards against Weber State.On the offensive side of the ball, the Trojans will have to deal with an Aggie defense with a strong linebacker corps including senior Leki Uasike and junior Alex Huerta who recorded nine and seven tackles, respectively.USC has not scored a touchdown yet this season due in part to Alabama’s defensive decision to take away junior wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.“If that’s the case, let’s make [senior wide receiver] Darreus Rogers a household name,” said redshirt junior quarterback Max Browne. “We had flashes of that last week I think, but at the end of the day it’s not just like we’re going to forget about [JuJu].”Rogers and Smith-Schuster are part of a highly touted wide receiving corps, but Browne acknowledged that he must do a better job of locating and connecting with his receivers.“You have to connect on those in all three phases: offensive line, my play and then receivers down field,” Browne said.The offensive line has been one of the most highly criticized groups after a poor performance against Alabama, and now the line will be without starting junior center Toa Lobendahn who suffered a torn ACL.  Helton said missed assignments and a lack of physicality were the two main flaws that the offensive line was working on fixing ahead of Saturday’s game.In addition to protecting Browne, the offensive line will see snaps from redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold. Helton reaffirmed that he will use Darnold in certain red zone situations and in short yard opportunities.The game is set for an 11 a.m. kickoff and is the earliest home game that the Trojans have played in the Coliseum since the early 1950s. It will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.last_img read more

Alexander: LeBron’s comments about Magic Johnson? Simply a delayed reaction

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers• The reaction was as overheated as you might expect, but consider one pertinent fact: The segment was in fact filmed April 11, two days after Magic’s bombshell. That was LeBron’s mood then. It might not necessarily be his mood now. …• That was also, to date, his only public comment on the matter. It’s understandable that he wouldn’t want to scoop the show in which he has a business interest, although some sort of reaction between now and then would have been nice.The Lakers’ decision-makers don’t have such an excuse. The longer they stay out of sight, as they have since the season ended, the worse they look with no tangible benefit to show for it.Will Jeanie Buss or Rob Pelinka or any of the other functionaries even show their faces when the team finally makes Tyronn Lue’s hiring as head coach official, as is expected this week? I’m not optimistic. …• The last line of the episode, from actor Don Cheadle after LeBron had spoken his piece about Magic’s departure, was classic: “All right. I’ll do it. You need a president of the Lakers? You don’t have to do all of this. Just ask me. I’m in.” Honestly, I’ve heard worse ideas. …• Given the circumstances, and overlooking the optics, bringing in Lue – who won a championship with LeBron in Cleveland and is generally perceived by the public as LeBron’s Guy – is probably the only feasible choice.Yeah, it sounds good to say that the team must not cater to its star, as some have suggested, but consider: The guy who convinced James to sign up is no longer in the building, and those who remain have provided LeBron no reason yet to trust their acumen. The wisest course, like it or not, is to show LeBron all due consideration to keep things from completely blowing up. …• Meanwhile, as Lakers management continues to meander, do we know how many Clippers recruiters – er, scouts are following Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant during their respective playoff series? …• Item: Until Saturday, a disqualification had never decided the Kentucky Derby.Comment: Also until Saturday, the Derby had never been run amid the public outcry generated after 23 equine deaths at one track in just three months of this year. This is an embattled industry, and given a sloppy track, a large field and the ugly possibilities of an accident in the sport’s biggest race, can you blame the Churchill Downs stewards for reacting as they did? …• So, let’s see: Southern California is the birthplace of beach volleyball. The sport’s culture is centered here. The professional tournaments held here are the most prestigious. And this has also become the center of the college game, with USC winning the first two NCAA championships and UCLA the next two, including Saturday’s championship match victory over USC.Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed center_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs So why is the NCAA’s championship event held in Gulf Shores, Ala.? Are our beaches not good enough? …• The Ducks’ San Diego affiliate opened the second round of the AHL’s Calder Cup playoffs with two victories in Bakersfield. Max Comtois – who scored on his first NHL shot as a Duck on opening night, before going back to juniors – scored at 4:20 of the fourth overtime for a 3-2 victory in Game 1 (around 12:20 a.m. Saturday morning), and then scored in a 4-1 Game 2 triumph on Saturday night.Games 3 and 4 are in San Diego on Wednesday and Friday nights, and the Gulls should be motivated. A Game 5 would be Saturday night in Bakersfield, which would mean one long, sleepy bus ride after Game 4 if they don’t sweep. That’s life in the AHL.Meanwhile, Bob Murray waits patiently in Anaheim. The longer a Ducks coaching announcement is delayed, the more apparent it seems that the Gulls’ Dallas Eakins will be the guy. …• XFL II is holding a news conference at L.A. Live on Tuesday to announce the head coach and general manager of its Los Angeles franchise for the league’s 2020 re-launch.So again we ask: If there is as much hunger for football as all of these promoters of springtime leagues continue to insist, why have none of them succeeded? And why should we believe this one will be any [email protected]@Jim_Alexander on Twitter The world according to Jim:• LeBron James made headlines again over the weekend, but it’s wise to take a breath before jumping to conclusions.The airing of the latest episode of “The Shop,” the conversational HBO show from LeBron’s own production company, featured the superstar’s first public comments on Magic Johnson’s sudden departure from Lakers management nearly a month ago, before the team’s final regular-season game. LeBron is here thanks in part to Magic’s recruiting efforts, so the sudden decision was a shock, as was its timing:“I feel like there’s a time and place for things, and I believe that you knew you were going to make that decision. So why would you do it here? And why would you do it now? … It was just weird for (Johnson) to just be like . . . ‘Nah, I’m out of here. And not even have (a heads-up) like: ‘Hey, Bron . . . kiss my (expletive). I’m out of here.’ I would have been okay with that … It wasn’t even that. ”last_img read more
