This week could prove to be tremendous in terms of recruiting for the Georgia Bulldogs, as two highly touted prospects are announcing their college destinations. Both are out-of-state prospects, and both play on the defensive line. Sounds like a dream come true, right?The first of the two prospects announcing is Josh Sweat. The 6-foot-5 defensive end from Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake, Va. is set to announce December 10. Sweat saw his season come to an abrupt halt after dislocating his left knee. Sweat keeps his recruitment extremely tight lipped, and no one in the recruiting business knows for sure which school he will choose at his announcement on Wednesday. We do know that Sweat is projected to decide between Georgia, Florida State, and nearby Virginia Tech. Sweat plans to be back on the field in time for the start of his freshman season of football. Of course the school he chooses may look to redshirt him to make sure he is completely healthy, instead of risking such a great talent by trying to get Sweat back onto the field too early.The second prospect that will be deciding later in the week is Albert Huggins. Huggins, who was once considered to be a heavy Clemson lean, is now torn between Clemson and Georgia. According to Rivals, Huggins is considered to be a strong side defensive end, the same position that Georgia commits Jonathan Ledbetter and Chauncey Rivers are projected to play. The 6-foot-2, lineman from Orangeburg Wilkinson High School in Orangeburg, S.C., told the UGASports team earlier that Georgia was his “dream school.” The depth chart doesn’t seem to scare Huggins, as UGA is growing on him and the Bulldogs’ coaches have made him a priority in the recent weeks.If both Sweat and Huggins decide to come to Georgia, the defensive line would be stacked for years to come. With the top-rated defensive tackle Trenton Thompson already committed and numerous four stars right behind him, this could be the best defensive line recruiting class that the Bulldogs have ever put together.Paul Maharry writes for UGASports.com<!–iframe–>

The Trail Smoke Eaters held leads three separate times but couldn’t find a way to hold them as they dropped a 6-4 decision to the Merritt Centennials on Saturday night at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena. It took until the game’s opening power play to find a goal scorer and came in the way of defender Trevor Zins to give the visiting Smoke Eaters a 1-0 lead. Kent Johnson played the puck from the left wing up to the point for Zins as he let a wrist shot go through heavy traffic in front of the net and beat Centennials netminder Austin Roden for his 12th goal of the season and gave Trail a 1-0 advantage at the 10:02 mark of the opening frame. Merritt had an answer just over two minutes later after a power play had expired as Mike Van Unen tied the game at 1-1. Van Unen took a pass from Bradley Cocca at the left point and wristed a shot to the net that beat Smoke Eaters goaltender Donovan Buskey through traffic on the glove side at the 12:36 mark to even the game.Before the period was out, the Smoke Eaters regained their one-goal lead off a turnover in the neutral zone after a Centennial defender lost his footing just outside the blue line. Carter Jones picked the loose puck up, trying to go through the legs of Roden but was denied before the rebound was chipped in by Owen Ozar following the play for his 13th goal of the season and a 2-1 lead for Trail into the 1st intermission. The Centennials battled back to begin the 2nd period with an early power play and got the game on even terms once again courtesy of the man advantage. Matthew Kopperud sent a puck from the left point down to the goal line for a streaking Nick Granowicz as he deflected the puck in past the glove side of Buskey just seven seconds into the power play and at the 1:45 mark tied the game at 2-2. Trail once again would take the lead at the 6:49 mark of the middle stanza courtesy of another power play marker, their second of the game. Chase Stevenson started the play with a pass to the midpoint for Diarmad DiMurro as he fed the right wing where Braeden Tuck let a shot go from the right face-off circle for his 14th goal of the season and a 3-2 Smoke Eaters advantage. As they did for the night, the Centennials had an answer as Kopperud knotted the game up at 3-3 at the 13:43 mark. After some sustained time in the offensive zone, Kopperud threw the puck on goal from the right corner and snuck past the blocker side of Buskey to even the game heading into the final period of regulation. The Centennials took their first lead of the game at the 5:27 mark of the final period with Peyton Matsui finding the back of the net with a nice deflection. Talon Zakall took the shot from the right point that was tipped in from the right face-off circle by Matsui to give Merritt a 4-3 advantage. That lead didn’t last long as Chase Stevenson got the game evened up at 4-4 at the 6:06 mark, coming just 39 seconds after Merritt took the lead. Trevor Zins got his own rebound down the right wing and left the puck at the glove side as Stevenson stuffed his 19th goal of the season past Roden to even the score. The eventual game winning goal came at the 11:09 mark of the 3rd period with Granowicz tallying his second goal of the night on the power play. Nick Wicks passed from below the goal line on the blocker side as Granowicz was alone in the slot to bury the goal that gave Merritt a 5-4 lead. Trail had a late power play in the 3rd period with just over two and a half minutes remaining and pulled the goaltender but couldn’t find the back of the net as Wicks added an empty netter with 30 seconds left to finish the scoring in a 6-4 Centennials win. Donovan Buskey turned aside 22 of the 27 shots he faced in the game in his 3rd loss of the season while Austin Roden stopped 20 of the 24 shots thrown his way in his 24th victory of the season. FINAL SCORE: 6-4 CentennialsSHOTS ON GOAL: 28-24 Centennials

A Milwaukee man said he was a victim of racial profiling after he tried to return blinds at the Wauwatosa, Wisconsin Home Depot.After buying blinds for his house, Terrance Westmoreland noticed they were a different shade than he had wanted, so he headed back to The Home Depot, 4100 N. 124th St., on July 24 to exchange them. Westmoreland, who is black, put the boxes in a cart and walked through the store to the blinds section.With his receipt in his hand, he compared the blinds to find the right shade. Westmoreland then walked to the customer service desk, where he tried to return two boxes and purchase three others. “Before I could even finish, this Caucasian security guard kind of grabbed my arm,” he said.- Sponsor – He went with the loss prevention officer, expecting an apology once they realized what was going on. Instead, the officer accused him of trying to do an illegal return. “He said I didn’t come into the store with any boxes,” Westmoreland said. Westmoreland suggested they check surveillance video, which would prove his story, but was told they couldn’t access the video footage.

In the early 1990s, database-focused marketing transformed into what we now know as customer relationship management (CRM).Over the years, the ways in which salespeople deal with customers and potential customers have changed, and the CRM has incorporated many of those changes. The rise of social media and the importance of mobile, for instance, has meant that those channels have been integrated into modern CRMs.But where does this central tool of sales go from here?Centered around email. It could be that some CRMs evolve into extensions of central communication channels, instead of incorporating those channels into the standard CRM.Email, for example. Switzerland-based Gmelius, for instance, reimagines CRM with email as its center, given that email remains the central communication tool for salespeople.In Gmelius, emails that require action become task cards. Collaboration between teams can be managed from inboxes and with Google Calendar, notes and due dates can be attached to the tasks, inbox-linked automatic reminders help users keep track of due dates and messages can be logged into a standard CRM. Here’s a typical screenshot:(Click to enlarge.)Incorporating CDP and business processes. Erik Hale, Global Enterprise executive for business process management at CRM/business process automation platform BPM’Online, told me that CRM “is evolving into more a complete business solution,” in part by taking some of the capabilities of the Customer Data Platform (CDP).He said his company’s CRM, for instance, offers some of the features often associated with CDPs, including the ability to handle unstructured data, orchestrate multiple channels in real time and provide tools for data cleaning, like de-duplication.But, he acknowledged, CDPs are more advanced in the ways that they handle data input from a wide range of sources. CRMs will continue to grow their capabilities as a platform that isn’t “just a [large] address book” for sales, he said, until CRMs overtake CDPs by absorbing their best features.CDPs as the superset. But Raviv Turner, CEO and co-founder of customer data platform (CDP) CaliberMind, sees a more fundamental transformation of CRM’s role in the customer journey, where CRMs become a kind of subset of CPMs.CRMs were born for B2B as sales tools for maintaining one-to-one relationships, and he sees traditional versions remaining in such a role for salespeople. It’s part of salespeople’s habitual workflow and their working data is in there.But their relative importance in B2B will change dramatically, he predicts.A large and growing portion of B2B customers now comes pre-sold to the salesperson. In other words, the IT manager who wants to buy new cloud services or the office manager buying new furniture for branch offices have extensively researched their purchases online before they ever connect with a salesperson. They have visited web sites, downloaded white papers, checked out expert or buyer reviews and pored over comparison charts.“It used to be, you pick up the phone and [the results of the conversation] get recorded into Salesforce [CRM],” he said. “Now, it’s 8 to 10, maybe more, touches [between the brand and the customer] before Salesforce.”That means that marketing now owns a much bigger role in the B2B sales cycle. And, Turner says, that means that CDPs will take a bigger role and reduce CRM’s, because CDPs are designed to handle personalization at scale, via big data.While this view supports CaliberMind’s position and vision as a CDP, CDPs do have advantages over CRMs.The customer management-at-scale advantages of CDPs. CDPs are designed to support one-to-many interactions, delivering data in real-time as well as collecting it and thus supporting the omni-channel approach required to market to B2B and B2C buyers, especially as new channels like smart cars, smart glasses, the Internet of Things and interactive TV really take off. By contrast, CRMs are intended to house data about one-to-one sales transactions.In addition to neatly arrayed structured data, CDPs are designed from the ground up to handle unstructured data, such as the kind that emanates from social and other channels, and to accommodate really big data.CRMs, CDP Institute founder David Raab has told me, were born as tools to replace sales agents’ Roladexes and contact cards and to assist contact center agents — not as the keepers of master identity profiles that are used across an organization’s many tools and channels.“Look at [CDP] as an intelligent switchboard,” Turner said, more optimized for personalization and for account-based marketing than lead-focused CRMs, and better able to take advantage of AI because the data is centralized and clean. He also noted that CDPs like his also have built-in tools for de-duplication and other data cleaning, something that CRMs may not.On the B2C side, it’s no contest, in Turner’s view. Consumer sales are now all about personalization delivered at scale, which favors CDPs. He said that consumer-focused organizations that have marketing automation platforms with CRMs built-in or attached will eventually need a customer data repository optimized for multi-channel performance.Neither CRM nor CDP? AI will eventually change CRMs, Turner predicts, possibly leading to a tool that combines both kinds of tools. He pointed out that Salesforce itself — the king of CRM — seems to be getting ready for a new level of platform-wide customer identity, with its recent acquisitions of Datorama and MuleSoft and its launch of Customer 360. Similarly, Oracle has recently launched what it describes as a “CDP-plus,” called CX Unity.Tony Kavanagh, CMO of CRM Insightly, told me he sees CRMs remaining as an automation tool for managing leads, opportunities and relationships, possibly with CDP as the master record underneath.But Patrick Salyer, GM of SAP’s Customer Data Cloud and formerly CEO of identity management platform Gigya (now owned by SAP), thinks both of the terms — CRM and CDP — are too limiting.CRMs are designed for sales use cases, he said, as in Salesforce, while CDPs are largely a tool for marketers. (One of the CDP Institute’s definitions of CDPs is that they need to be usable by non-technical marketers.)Instead, Salyer promotes the idea of a Customer Data Cloud, which contains privacy consent info and purchase history, in addition to demographic, behavioral and relationship data.Whatever they are called and however many separate incarnations there are for use cases such as sales, it appears the customer profile — the record of a customer’s history with a brand and with a sales person — is moving toward many more features, a greater ability to capture and utilize a wide variety of data, and support for the real-time and personalized engagement with users across platforms.This story first appeared on MarTech Today.
