Those guys were nice. The three weeks were tough but I tried to enjoy it.” He added: “The first day, we don’t know each other so it’s a bit weird but soon we got to know each other. We spent every day together in one room, 10 people. We were very close, working together, we helped each other so the time was fantastic.” Son was out injured for the final weeks before the Premier League was suspended and cannot wait to get going when the season restarts on June 17.

It was not like that in previous editions and that is what I think makes it more competitive. For us I think we have 60 percent chance of winning and clinching the sole ticket to Tokyo.

Gen David Petraeus said his tenure as commanding general in Iraq and director of the CIA included countless sleepless nights, catching a stray bullet in the chest and even a mountain bike race against former President George W. Bush.Gen. Ed. · David Petraeus, a USC Judge Widney Professor, talks to students on Tuesday about his experiences serving as commander general of the Iraq forces and CIA director. – Tom Queally | Daily TrojanPetraeus, a USC Judge Widney Professor, gave leadership advice and described his experience working in the upper echelon of government services in a lecture he gave in MDA 325, “Case Studies in Modern Leadership,” on Tuesday.The class, taught by Dan Schnur and Bill Simon, includes guest lectures by prominent figures in politics, business and the media.Petraeus spoke of how his experience as the commanding general in Iraq shaped his understanding of leadership, starting from the moment he was given the job.“I basically went to the White House for a meeting and came out with a new job,” Petraeus said of being appointed the commanding general of U.S. troops in Iraq by Bush.Though leading U.S. soldiers in Iraq was both grueling and emotionally draining, Petraeus said he counts the experience among his most valuable.“You cannot imagine anything more awesome on a good day, but there aren’t many good days. We had a few good days,” he said. “A good day was no casualties and also no Iraqi casualties.”Petraeus said the deaths of U.S. soldiers took an emotional toll on him even when he did not know them personally. He was also injured during his time in the military in what he called a “freak accident” when he was hit by a stray bullet shot by one of his own soldiers.The general also said that the complexity of his job made it especially draining. Petraeus envisioned the military working differently than previous operations. When a soldier asked him if he saw the World War II general Douglas MacArthur as a role model, Petraeus explained that his vision more closely aligned with Rudy Giuliani’s strategy as mayor of New York City.“I think of Rudy Giuliani trying to patch broken windows in New York. And that’s sort of the way we looked at it,” Petraeus said. “The idea is if you fix the broken window, it doesn’t turn into the derelict building that turns into the crack house that destroys the neighborhood. You have got to stop that early on.”His role in Iraq, Petraeus said, focused on more than traditional combat — U.S. troops were rebuilding communities, patching roads and repairing schools. He hoped their efforts could help Iraqi citizens feel more secure in their homes, and turn the tide of violence in the country.“There is nothing easy about it, but there is also no greater privilege,” he said of serving in the military.Petraeus’ string of positions spanned two presidencies: Bush’s and President Barack Obama’s. Asked to describe the differences between the two presidents, Petraeus called the comparison “apples and oranges.”He spoke highly of both presidents, praising Obama’s exhaustive decision-making process and Bush’s resolve in difficult situations. Petraeus has even gone mountain biking with Bush and said that even though he rode the president’s tail the whole ride, “the president always finishes first.”Petraeus said he admires both presidents for the difficulty of their job, noting that the wealth of factors both Bush and Obama had to consider complicated their decisions.“You can’t divorce the battlefield from Capitol Hill politics, coalition politics, the fiscal deficit,” he said. “You name it, there are factors that [the president] has to grapple with. In his decision-making equation, those are factors. In mine, they are informing, but not driving, factors.”Regardless of the industry or field, Petraeus said everyone from world leaders to CEOs to aspiring entrepreneurs has to focus on the “big ideas” in order to effect change.“If you don’t get big ideas right, you don’t get Facebook, you don’t get Google,” he said. “These are all built on big ideas. In Iraq, the surge that mattered most was the surge of ideas, not the surge of forces. Big ideas don’t hit you on the head like Newton’s apple if you stand under the right tree. Big ideas are hard.”The general also said he learned the value of cooperation in his positions of leadership, noting that “no one of us is smarter than all of us together.” In Iraq, when his team drafted the counter-insurgency manual for U.S. troops, Petraeus said the most effective meetings he had included journalists, intellectuals and experts in addition to military officers.Though he looked back on his career fondly, Petraeus also said his high-ranking positions showed him how lonely being a leader can be.“The truth is you don’t have anybody to talk to, actually … At the end of the day, there is one commander or one leader and that is you,” Petraeus said. “There are really no peers in those situations.”Editor’s note: This post has been updated.
With concerns over the Trojans’ future looming after the departure of such mainstays as Rey Maualuga, Brian Cushing and Mark Sanchez, the potentially unstable Trojans can look to one reliable unit as a source of balance: the offensive line.The already-experienced unit sacrificed none of its 2008 starters to either the NFL or lasting injury in the offseason. Understandably, such a veteran group of players arrive with hype proclaiming them the best O-line in the nation.Big assets · The Trojans’ offensive line should be one of the deepest in the nation, a huge advantage to whoever ends up playing quarterback. – Ian Elston | Daily Trojan Naturally, offensive line coach Pat Ruel doesn’t buy into any of that kind of talk.“Let me tell you something, you’re only as good as your last play and what you did,” Ruel said. “There’s too many times when people talk about how good you are and you start listening to it and then you’re not working as hard as you should.”Regardless, the affable Ruel budged a little when pressed about the talent and experience of his boys.“We have a chance to be a very good offensive line, and it’s going to be determined by how much hard work we put in and how well we prepare, and their attitude,” Ruel said.Sixth-year senior left guard Jeff Byers agreed with Ruel about the real value of hype.“Rankings mean nothing at the beginning of the season. The toughest challenge for a line is to perform week in and week out,” Byers said. “Offensive line’s a real special position in that every week it’s a different challenge.”When asked about any potential weaknesses in the offensive line, Ruel wryly replied “coaching,” before continuing to offer some criticism of his highly touted players.“I think that right now we’re behind in some pass protection stuff. We’re not clean on picking up some stuff. We’re there, but we just need to fundamentally get there,” Ruel said.Despite Ruel’s concerns over his line’s protection against the pass rush, coach Pete Carroll expressed confidence in the unit’s ability to protect the man behind center.“Our quarterbacks couldn’t ask for a better supporting crew around them,” Carroll said.Junior center Kristofer O’Dowd, who was sidelined during spring practices with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, remained the one major question mark on the roster. At summer practice, O’Dowd confirmed he had been fully cleared to play. The 2008 All-Pac-10 player said that he was “confident” in the offensive line’s ability to excel.“No one left and we’re a smarter group. Things come a lot easier and we can work on smaller details of our game to be a better unit and help this offense and help this team become our best,” O’Dowd said.O’Dowd also denied any nervousness among his fellow starters over the upcoming game at Ohio State, simultaneously offering high praise to his daily opponents on the practice field.“The only defensive unit we’re worried about is the defensive unit we go against every day,” O’Dowd said. “That is the best defense in the country. ”Until this season, Ruel said, the offensive line only ever had eight or nine players in total from year to year. Ruel explained that one benefit of the unit’s retention of all of its starters has been the value of their experience to the team’s new recruits.“We’ve finally got our numbers up a little bit, and now everybody’s talking about how we’ve got a really good talent base,” Ruel said. “Well, that’s what we want. We want our older players now to teach our younger players how to play, how to be competitors, how to be winners and how to be champions.”Both Ruel and Carroll expressed satisfaction with the level of competition between veterans like O’Dowd and Byers and freshmen up-and-comers such as Khaled Holmes and Matt Kalil, the younger brother of former All-American Trojan center Ryan Kalil.“We’ve got a lot of guys battling for playing time that are worthy of playing,” Carroll said. “They’re tough. They’re big enough. They’re smart football players … Now it’ll be really interesting to see if they can’t make a pitch for their playing time.”

After a shocking 1-2 defeat to Ashgold in the Ghana Premier League, the management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko have asked coach Mas-Ud Didi Dramani to proceed on leave, Asempa Sports understands.Dramani is said to be angry with the latest decision and has dared the management team to take a definite decision on his long-term future.Kotoko find themselves in a tricky situation as the dismissal of the coach will lead to huge sums of money being paid as compensation for wrongful termination of his contract.Even though officials are tight-lipped on the latest development, media reports have suggested the former Ghana Under-17 team coach has been asked to step aside in a bid to find a lasting solution to their faltering campaign.Dramani has lost the board room support following what many perceive as his recalcitrant stance on his tactics.He has been accused of tinkering too much with his squad and believed to have lost the dressing room plot as well.
