Marshall goes shopping in the Coaching “Portal”

Do you remember the 2018 disaster and the makeup game with Marshall that got the team back on their feet and ended up being a fun day in a relatively empty Lane Stadium? We were talking about their Assistant Defensive Coordinator being a Hokie Defensive line star from the mid to late 90s (especially the great ’95 defense)?

It looks like JC Price is coming home to Blacksburg. He and his family will take the long journey down 77 and up 81 – no speed in the overlap, JC. They get you.

Normally you’d have to say Price had to fill big shoes, but he has a decade of solid coaching experience, mentored Darryl Tapp and learned from the best – like his fellow defensive

How to watch Star Trek: Lower Decks online and stream every episode from anywhere now

From warping minds with off-the-wall adult cartoon Rick and Morty, writer Mike McMahan’s latest animated show sees him turn his attention to all things warp speed. Read on as we explain how to watch Star Trek: Lower Decks online, wherever you are in the world right now.

Set after the movie Star Trek: Nemesis (but before Picard), the cartoon comedy  show follows the support crew on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos. The show is the first Star Trek animated series in decades, and features a pretty big name voice talent.

The cast includes The Boys’ Jack Quaid (Ensign Brad Boimler), Space Force’s Tawny Newsome (Ensign Beckett Mariner), Master of None’s Noël Wells (Ensign Tendi) and The Good Place’s Eugene Cordero(Ensign Rutherford).

Researchers from the University of Bath have developed technology that would allow people to digitise their dogs.

Such an application could be used for a number of purposes, such as assisting vets in diagnosing issues walking and monitoring their recovery.

It could also be used for more entertaining reasons, such as putting digital representations of dogs into movies and video games – without constant use of motion capture suits or expensive equipment.

Computer scientists digitised the movement of 14 different breeds of dog, including lurchers and pugs, who were residents of the local animal shelter.

The motion capture suits, made especially for dogs, were filmed doing a range of movements as part of their activities.

They then created a computer model which could accurately predict and replicate the poses of dogs, capturing all the vital information without the dogs wearing the suits.

Instead, the researchers can use
