The August rate was down slightly from the 2.00 percent that was reported for July and down from 2.61 percent that was reported in August 2013. The serious delinquency rate reached its peak of 5.59 percent in February 2010.Since the serious delinquency rate has fallen by 0.62 percentage points in the last year, analysts say the rate could fall below the “normal” level of 1.0 percent by 2016, although declines have come at a slower pace in recent months.Fannie Mae reported that 9.365 permanent loan modifications were completed in August, making a total of 88,231 loan modifications year-to-date through August 31, 2014.Seriously delinquent mortgage loans are defined as those that are either three months or more behind on their payments or are in foreclosure.The report also stated that in August, Fannie Mae’s Book of Business decreased at a compound annualized rate of 4.0 percent while the GSE’s Gross Mortgage Portfolio declined at a compound annualized rate of 16.7 percent for the month.

Hull gave their more illustrious visitors more than one scare with the scores tied but Dzeko’s second and a fourth in three games from substitute Frank Lampard sealed a 4-2 win for the visitors. And Pellegrini revealed he was always confident of getting the right result. “I really was very calm because I don’t think it was the real (rightful) score in the first half,” he said. “You must have personality and character when that happens to try and return to normal. “I felt during half-time the players were clear about what happened, it was not that we were playing badly. “The way we started (I felt) we were going to win the game in the second half and we did. I was very happy about that.” Pellegrini also played down his decision to hand Willy Cabellero a Premier League debut in place of England number one Joe Hart. Caballero was brought to City as a credible challenger for the gloves and retained his place following his appearance in the 7-0 Capital One Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday. The Barclays Premier League champions were 2-0 in front inside 11 minutes as Edin Dzeko followed Sergio Aguero’s opener with a wonderful strike from the edge of the area. At that stage victory seemed a formality but £32million defender Eliaquim Mangala gave the Tigers a route back, putting a bullet header into his own net then conceding a penalty which Abel Hernandez stroked home. “I think for Willy it was good to play not just one game but to play two in a row,” he said. “Joe played eight games in 32 days, a lot of games for a goalkeeper. I have a squad of 22, 23 players and I make rotations because I think it is better for the team. “In this case I think it was good for Willy.” Pellegrini had a word of consolation for Mangala, who endured a bumpy ride following an outstanding debut against Chelsea last weekend. “I think you cannot analyse a player on one match,” he said. “Not the last game when he played wonderfully and everyone said he was the best defender in the world and not today because he was very unlucky with the own-goal and the penalty.” Hull boss Steve Bruce was buoyed by his players’ response to Manchester City’s blistering start but admitted they had ultimately been beaten by the better side. “We had an awful 10-15 minutes at the start and it shows character that they rolled their sleeves up and got back into it,” said Bruce. “For a good hour after that it could have gone either way. We weren’t quite good enough but we gave it a right good go and against a quality team like them that’s all you can ask for. “City are a class act. They want to go and beat you, they want to go and give every team a hammering and they’ve got the players to go that. “Aguero, Dezeko and David Silva, in particular, are wonderful footballers and they’ll give every team problems.” Manuel Pellegrini never doubted his Manchester City side would see off Hull, despite throwing away a two-goal lead in the first half.

Published on December 19, 2018 at 10:26 pm No. 16 Syracuse (9-3, 6-2 Atlantic Coast) plays in its first bowl game since 2013 on Dec. 28 against No. 16 West Virginia (8-3, 6-3 Big 12) in the Camping World Bowl. In the month leading up to the game, several interesting storylines have developed including WVU star quarterback Will Grier deciding to not play in preparation for the NFL Draft and the possibility of Syracuse graduate transfers playing in their first games for SU.Below our beat writers address pressing questions leading into the Orange’s bowl game.How much of a difference will the absence of Will Grier make in the game?Andrew Graham: A rather big one. Grier is most definitely NFL bound, which is why he’s sitting this game out. Head coach Dino Babers said he’s not entirely sure what to expect from the Mountaineers’ other quarterbacks, though. The backup is Jack Allison, a redshirt sophomore with 10 attempts to his name this season. With no tape to scout, there’s no “book” on Allison or WVU’s other QB’s, he said. Babers brought up the other quarterbacks because he alluded that WVU may even bring out two quarterbacks, try to run from the QB position or throw other wrinkles out. While this does create a bit of a game planning black hole, none of the quarterbacks on this roster are as talented, polished or accomplished as Grier, and that’s going to show.Matt Liberman: Over the past two seasons, West Virginia quarterbacks have combined for 888 pass attempts. Grier has thrown 788 of those, and the backup, Jack Allison, has thrown just 10 passes this season. West Virginia wins its games through the air. Grier is top-5 in the nation in touchdowns, passing yards and passer rating. The Mountaineers rank third in the nation in passing yards per game and 75th in rushing. Without its star, who came into this season as a favorite to be a Heisman finalist, West Virginia will likely have to rely on its run game. Barring a Grier-like performance from whomever backs him up, that doesn’t bode well for WVU.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJosh Schafer: Will Grier finished his final season with West Virginia averaging 351 passing yards per game with 37 touchdowns. Redshirt sophomore Jack Allison threw 10 passes all year. With that said, it’s hard to guess what will come of West Virginia’s offense. But if Allison doesn’t play near Grier’s level, the Mountaineers will rely on their run offense. In the regular season, the WVU offense averaged 162 rushing yards per game, 75th in the nation. Syracuse’s run defense improved as the season went on and can hold its own against an average WVU rushing attack. With the rushing attack in check, the Mountaineers may be forced to drop Allison back at a similar rate they would Grier. And with the seventh ranked pass rush in the country, Syracuse won’t let Allison have anything easy. The bottom line: Anytime a team’s best player sits out, it’s going to be in a bit of trouble.How much will SU by boosted if its newly-eligible transfers play?A.G.: It’s hard to say at this point. Wideout Trishton Jackson and running back Abdul Adams both only became eligible about a week ago. As members of the scout team, they’ve been running the offenses of SU’s opponent for 12 weeks. The challenge for them, Babers said, is getting up to speed with SU’s offense. They need to know the playbook perfectly, because, Babers said, if even one guy is off on a play, it can wreck all the timing. I still expect to see a healthy dose of Jackson and Abdul — they’ll provide a nice talent infusion — but as of now, it’s still probably up to SU’s regular crew of contributors to carry the load offensively.M.L.: I would caution anyone who thinks that throwing Jackson and Adams out on the first snap is a good idea. Yes, they’ve been at school for over a year now and have likely learned the playbook enough to go out and run their proper assignments, but they’ve never played it in a game. And working in Syracuse’s no-huddle, fast-paced offense is a completely different animal. I think SU rides with the combination that they have gone with all season long, and if the team is in need of a spark of energy, then Jackson and Adams may see some action.J.S.: At this point, we don’t know much about Jackson or Adams other than the whispers of them being explosive in practice. Which is why it’s not unreasonable to go back to their original recruiting profiles and brief college stints with other programs. They were both four-star recruits who transferred from schools with better recent football histories than Syracuse. Adams averaged 9.2 yards per carry last season at Oklahoma. If he gets even a few carries, Syracuse fans might be treated to a hint of his explosion. Jackson, a 6-foot-1 receiver, caught 12 passes for 143 yards last season with Michigan State. Quarterback Eric Dungey likes to spread the ball around in a pass-happy offense, which would benefit Jackson if he plays.What’s the game’s most important matchup?A.G.: SU’s pass rush versus WVU’s offensive line. Besides Grier, one of the Mountaineers offensive tackles, Yodny Cajuste, is sitting out the Camping World Bowl, too. This is then a ripe opportunity for Kendall Coleman, Chris Slayton and Alton Robinson to wreak some havoc. SU’s pass rush has been good, if not entirely consistent this season. But against a backup quarterback and a weakened offensive line, SU can seriously disrupt everything WVU will try to do offensively. SU’s dominant pass rush can kill plays before they really start. If Syracuse can do that semi-consistently on Dec. 28, it should neuter the Mountaineers vaunted offense.M.L.: Can Syracuse get its run game going? Where West Virginia will be suiting up with a second-string quarterback, SU will likely have the upper hand offensively, only if Moe Neal, Dontae Strickland and Jarveon Howard are able to advance the football and be a true threat to open up the sidelines for the Orange’s wideouts. If SU is able to push the ball up the gut, it’ll open the passing lines for Nykeim Johnson and Sean Riley in the flat and over the middle, and that in turn creates one-on-one matchups on the outside for Jamal Custis and Taj Harris. If SU is forced to abandon the run game, then Eric Dungey has to be great in order to take down the Mountaineers, and he has a tendency to be up-and-down. His last game against BC was terrific, we’ll see if he can maintain it.J.S.: Syracuse’s passing attack versus the West Virginia secondary. On paper, this is a matchup the Orange offense wins every time. The Orange rank 36th in passing offense while the Mountaineers defense sits at 99th. But in this game, one without Grier, it’s important how much the Orange win this matchup by — for several reasons. A few weeks ago, the thought of the shootout sounded daunting for Syracuse. But now with WVU less equipped to keep pace with the Orange, it must run away with it. Add in that it’s the final game for Dungey, a player who has dictated the tone and performance for this team in the past four seasons, and the significance of the passing game only increases. It’s safe to say Syracuse goes as Dungey goes. So, if Dungey can throw well, complemented by some runs, the Orange will have their best chance to win. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
