RELATED: Gold Coast property used in Chris Lilley’s Netflix series up for grabs Mr Phillis wouldn’t reveal the sale price but it is understood to have fetched just under $3.5 million. Sellers Leo Nipperess and partner Brett Park bought the property five years ago and spent more than half a million dollars renovating it.Mr Nipperess said when it hit the market the home’s highlights included a $15,000 chandelier, which took a professional cleaner nine hours to polish, and a dressing room hidden behind a wall of mirrors. “We were renovating because we wanted to live there forever but we like projects and get bored so now it’s finished we are ready for our next project,” he said. The Hope Island house at 2633 Virginia Drive also starred in a television series. The buyers actually saw it on Find Me A Beach House Australia.At Hope Island, another mansion on Virginia Drive sold about two weeks after it was featured on Foxtel’s Find me a Beach House Australia.

Head football coach Clay Helton has had a penchant for hiring former assistants for his new staff, and Tuesday the trend continued as the Trojans announced the addition of Tommie Robinson as running backs coach.Robinson served as running backs coach and passing game coordinator for USC in 2013 under head coach Lane Kiffin but was not retained after Steve Sarkisian was hired.The 52-year-old has plenty of experience at the collegiate and NFL levels — 30 years in all — and he spent the last two seasons as the running backs coach for the Texas Longhorns.“We are thrilled to welcome back Tommie Robinson to the Trojan Family,” Helton said. “He is one of the most respected running back coaches in our profession. He has had an extensive career in both the NFL and college and he will pass on that knowledge to our young running back group.”Helton also worked with Robinson at Memphis, where they were both assistants in 2006.“I have had the good fortune to work with Tommie on two different occasions, at USC and at Memphis, and have seen firsthand how he develops young men both on and off the field,” Helton said. “He is a true professional and a terrific recruiter.”During the 2013 season at USC, Robinson guided the Trojans’ offense to 29 rushing touchdowns, its most in eight years.After starting his career as a graduate assistant at Arkansas, Robinson spent time at Utah State, TCU, and UNLV. Then came a three-year stint in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys where he served as a wide receivers and special teams assistant. Prior to his first stint at USC, Robinson was the running backs coach for the Arizona Cardinals from 2010-2012.Robinson’s career has also seen stops at Memphis, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State and Miami.Last season, the Longhorns averaged 5.67 yards per carry under Robinson, who will look to get the best out of several running backs the Trojans plan to feature, including Ronald Jones II and Justin Davis.Robinson joins Clancy Pendergast (defensive coordinator), Tee Martin (offensive coordinator), John Baxter (special teams coordinator and tight ends coach) and Helton as former assistants under Kiffin who will be on Helton’s staff in 2016. Pendergast and Baxter were brought in while Martin was promoted from wide receivers coach.Robinson’s hire means that Johnny Nansen, who was the running backs coach the last two seasons at USC, will shift to linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator. Nansen was retained by Helton after coming over with Sarkisian from Washington.

When Oklahoma led 17-16 after eight minutes, our in-game win probabilities listed the odds as essentially the same as they’d been before tipoff. Fans across the country settled in for an exciting game, perhaps like the one Villanova had played against Kansas in the South Regional final.But from that point on, things were anything but close. ’Nova rattled off a 12-0 run, touching off an eight-minute sequence in which it outscored Oklahoma 21 to 4. By halftime, the Wildcats led by 14 — but they weren’t done yet. After the Sooners briefly cut Villanova’s lead to single-digits with 16 minutes left in the game, the Wildcats scored 49 of the game’s next 63 points, including a 25-0 run that lasted approximately five and a half minutes on the scoreboard (but must have felt like an eternity to Sooner fans).The result was a 44-point landslide win for Villanova, the most lopsided victory in Final Four history. That is a matter of historical fact. But using our Elo ratings (which estimate a team’s strength at a given moment), we can also say that it was probably the most impressive NCAA Tournament win in more than 53 years — and the 10th-most-impressive D-I basketball victory, period, since the 1949-50 season: 1/27/1993OklahomaFlorida A&MREG146-65+63 4/2/2016VillanovaOklahomaNCAA95-51+65 1/12/1952Holy CrossBrownREG100-31+64 3/11/1963Loyola (IL)Tennessee TechNCAA111-42+70 3/12/1993KentuckyTennesseeCTOURN101-40+66 12/17/1986ClemsonArmstrongREG112-39+65 11/17/2009TennesseeUNC-AshevilleREG124-49+64 1/5/1974UCLAWashingtonREG100-48+64 2/27/1956KentuckyGeorgiaREG143-66+65 12/17/1995TulsaPrairie ViewREG141-50+72 12/11/1954DaytonBowling GreenREG109-39+69 11/25/1989DukeHarvardREG130-54+63 Because Elo measures the difference in relative quality between teams going into a game, it can be used (in conjunction with information about the location of the game) to create a predictive point spread. It can also be used to generate a hypothetical point spread that would have been expected from an average Division I team1With an Elo rating of exactly 1500. against the same opponent in a given game. So against Oklahoma on a neutral court Saturday, for instance, Villanova was expected to win by about 2.5 points; an average team would have been expected to lose by 21. That Villanova won by 44 implies that the Wildcats outperformed their own expectations by 41.5 points and those of an “average” team by about 65 points.Suffice it to say that 65 points is an extraordinarily wide margin for a team to beat the D-I average by in a single game. The record since 1949-50 in any game between two D-I schools is 73, set by North Carolina when it trounced Manhattan College by 84 points in 1985. (Elo estimates that an average team, playing at home, would have beaten the 1200-rated Jaspers by about 11 points.) But that also took place in a forgettable non-conference game two days after Christmas.To find an NCAA Tournament win more impressive than Villanova’s romp, you’d have to go back to 1963, when Loyola of Chicago exceeded average by 70 points with a 111-42 opening-round triumph over Tennessee Tech. And before the Wildcats’ win Saturday, no team had beaten average by 60 or more points in an NCAA Tournament game since 1971, when a previous incarnation of Villanova beat Penn 90-47.
Former Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta has allegedly made the controversial switch to Inter MilanMarotta operated as Juventus’ CEO for the past eight years and oversaw the club’s record run of seven successive Serie A titles.However, the 61-year-old decided to leave Turin in October and had been linked with a surprise move to Inter.Now Goal reports that Marotta’s switch to the San Siro is complete and that he will work in a similar capacity to which he had at Juventus.The Italian recently revealed on Monday that he will be remaining at his home country, despite interest from Manchester United.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“I will not go abroad. Italy represents the best of sport and more,” Marotta told Radicchio d’Oro.“For my part I want to stay here and I intend to continue working with an Italian team.”Marotta is expected to begin work at Inter in January.Luciano Spalletti’s side are currently third in the Serie A table and nine points behind leaders Juventus after last Sunday’s 4-1 loss to Atalanta.
