The early five point lead got the Gophers rolling, said head coach Brandon Eggum.“It was a great start,” he said. “Lizak’s dangerous, especially from the top, and he did a really good job.”The Boilermakers (8-5, 3-4 Big Ten) refused to go quietly, however, and earned decisions at 133 and 149 pounds to trim the Minnesota lead to just two.

The Gophers capitalized on the momentum following halftime when No. 15 Nick Wanzek earned Minnesota’s second consecutive major decision at 165 pounds, which gave the Gophers a 10-point lead with just four matches — and two of Minnesota’s best wrestlers — remaining.“It’s always nice to get a couple extra points [from major decisions],” Wanzek said. “At the end, you never know what the score is going to turn out to be … those bonus points are a huge deal.”last_img read more

Andy Murray claims second Wimbledon title after beating Milos Raonic

first_imgAndy Murray has won his second Wimbledon title after beating Milos Raonic in a thrilling final.The Scot produced a sensational display to defeat the Canadian 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (7-2) in two hours and 48 minutes in front of a packed Centre Court crowd.It’s Murray’s third Grand Slam title after winning the US Open in 2012 as well as ending Britain’s 77-year wait for a Wimbledon men’s singles champion back in 2013.Playing in his first Grand Slam final, Raonic showed few signs of nerves as he fended off an early break point in the third game of the match.

Netflix Just Acquired Mark Millars Comics Publisher

first_img It appears that Netflix will expand its already impressive roster of comics-based TV shows and movies even further. The company announced this morning that it has acquired Millarworld, the comic book publisher founded by comics creator Mark Millar. For anyone who doesn’t immediately recognize Millar’s name, he’s the guy behind the original comic versions of Kick-Ass, Wanted, Kingsmen, and Old Man Logan. Now, Netflix intends to bring all his Millarworld properties to its streaming service in the form of original movies, series, and kids’ shows. “For kids” isn’t typically the first phrase that comes to mind when I think of Millar’s work, but hey. Maybe he’ll create some kid-friendly stuff.In addition to producing shows based on existing Millarworld titles, the company will continue to create new comics under its new Netflix label. This is the first time Netflix has ever acquired another company, according to a press release. The move, Netflix says, further’s the services goal to acquire new intellectual property while working directly with its creators. This could even be Netflix’s answer to the whole Cinematic Universe craze. Millarworld comics are all interconnected, and it’s likely that any films or series to come out of this deal would be as well. Are you ready for yet another Cinematic Universe? At least these would all be in the same place.Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos called Millar “creator and re-inventor of some of the most memorable stories and characters in recent history,” going so far as to call him “as close as you can get to a modern day, Stan Lee.” (…OK.) “We can’t wait to harness the creative power of Millarworld to Netflix and start a new era in global storytelling,” Sarandos said.Millar also expressed excitement about the acquisition, viewing Netflix as the perfect place for Millarworld’s characters. “I’m so in love with what Netflix is doing and excited by their plans. Netflix is the future and Millarworld couldn’t have a better home,” he said.Though I’m not a huge fan of all of Millar’s work, it’s always exciting to see comics publishers other than Marvel and DC get this kind of attention. No matter what, it’ll be incredibly interesting to see what kinds of films, TV series and… kids’ shows come out of this. With Netflix working directly with Millar, will we see the darker, more twisted stuff that doesn’t make it into the movie adaptations of his comics? His work is violent, often disturbing and uncomfortable, and can border on nihilistic and misanthropic. The movies made from his comics (particularly Wanted and Kick-Ass) are heavily toned down from their source material, and they still get R-ratings. But hey, if this means we get a version of Wanted that doesn’t have curving bullets or a magic loom, that’ll be a plus.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
