first_imgAnother season has come and gone, and once again the Tigers are the No. 1 team in all of college football. This time, however, the No. 1 team at the end of the season hails from LSU, not Clemson.The Bayou Bengals capped one of the most impressive seasons in college football history on Monday, beating Clemson 42-25 to go 15-0 and win their first national title since the 2007 season. The win also snapped Clemson’s 29-game win streak, as well as a bid at consecutive national titles (and third in four seasons). Teams hailing from the ACC, Big 12 and Pac-12 were among the biggest losers in SN’s final top 25: The only ACC team ranked was Clemson, which finished No. 2 after Monday’s CFP title game loss to LSU. The Big 12 and Pac-12 each only had two teams ranked, and all of them played in their respective conference title games. Of those four teams, only Oregon won its bowl game.What does the rest of the top 25 look like after bowl season and the College Football Playoff championship?

first_imgHe acknowledges having made a mistakeAsked if he had spoken to him, he said: “Of course we talked. He is also worried. We don’t care about this situation. It is a subject that we must improve ourselves. It is trying to put solution. And he is working for it. We have already apologized that we have to ask. And especially me because, in the end, it’s my fault. I have to control these things. We have apologized everyone, everyone … It is a behavior that we should not have. Because there is another way of saying things. It is not a matter of giving explanations to the template. We are not comfortable with these things. It is a mistake we have made and we must try to avoid it. This is not the same. Nor do we extend further and I do not mean that this has come out. It is a bit embarrassing that it becomes news and has a dimension like the one it has acquired. That is embarrassing. That the media use a camera that is permanently following you on the bench. It is something that should be eradicated. It is something that should end. You can’t be all day with your hand in your mouth. I don’t have to force myself to cover my mouth. It’s unfortunate that these things happen. “ In a preview of the interview published this Friday in El Periódico, and published by journalists Marcos López and Joan Domènech, Quique Setién, coach of Barcelona, ​​anticipates what he will say in the press conference tomorrow. He says that “they have asked for forgiveness” for the ways of Eder Sarabia: “(…). It has affected me a lot. The first thing I think about is in the club and in the club’s image. It must be an impolute image, you have to take care of it. It’s a topic worries me a lot. It is something very important to me. They can criticize us because you make the changes wrong, because you pose the parties wrong … For whatever reason, but not for the behavior. It is true that you have to understand people and moments. We are not all equal. Eder is a kid who has a great temper, which for many things is phenomenal. But you have to learn to control yourself. It is in it, try to improve this issue because we have already had situations of these. More and more sporadic, but … But it’s something we don’t like. It is no excuse that these situations are seen on the benches. It is an issue that Eder is trying to solve. He is a young kid, an impulsive kid, who has a lot of energy, which for many things is tremendously positive. But we are on the bench of a club you represent and the behavior should be faultless. It is true that there is an isolated moment in which anything can happen to you, you go crazy and you go down, but this must be tried to control it. “last_img read more

first_imgChallenging, difficult, rough were some of the words that were used to describe the pitch that forced an abandonment of the third Jamaica Scorpions four-day trial match at Sabina Park yesterday.The pitch, which was into its second day when the umpires, in consultation with the national coaching staff decided to call off the match inside the first over, resulted in at least two players receiving body bruises and injury.They are batsmen AndrÈ McCarthy, who was hit on the finger on day one, and had to retire hurt, and Shacaya Thomas, who was hit five times, two to the head, two to the hand, and one on his fingers.”I can’t recall getting hit five times in a game,” said Thomas, who was 56 not out overnight, and was looking to score his first century of the trials on the day.”It was really a difficult pitch batting. I got hit twice on my head, twice on my hand, and one on my fingers.”Few balls bowledThe encounter, which was the third of six scheduled ahead of the start of the upcoming WICB Professional League, was called off after four balls were bowled yesterday by fast bowler Jason Dawes of John Campbell’s XI.Campbell’s XI made a paltry 124 on the opening day, with Paul Palmer’s XI responding with 84 for one when stumps were drawn.Palmer’s XI added another two runs to their overnight total, with young wicketkeeper, Kemar Marshall unbeaten on three when the umpires intervened.”A ball that you would normally look to come forward to, would just pop up, and, bounce over your head,” noted 26-year-old Thomas.”Judging the length of a delivery, as well, was also difficult to predict, in terms of going forward or back.”McCarthy, in the meanwhile, who was hit on the thumb on the first day and had to retire hurt, but was planning to resume batting on day two, said the pitch was a problem from the outset.”Balls were moving around and misbehaving from the first session on the opening day, when my team was in the field,” he explained.”But there was then a lot of rolling of the wicket during the lunch and tea breaks, and after play, and everybody kept anticipating that as the match went on it would play better.”The fourth two-day trial match is scheduled to begin next Tuesday.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)JAKARTA, Indonesia — After what Sajan Prakash has endured over the past week, the swimming competition at the Asian Games seems trivial.Yet it’s the one thing that has helped keep him in a reasonable frame of mind.ADVERTISEMENT Firefighters tackle large blaze outside Asian Games venue “I couldn’t contact those people who are affected but I’ve been in contact with my relatives who are outside of Kerala and they said ‘we’re all safe so not to worry,’” he said. “But being with my teammates is different from being alone.“They kept me entertained and focused for the meet.”With the reassurance of his mother and his teammates, Prakash made swimming his priority after accepting that there was nothing he could do change the situation at home.His single-minded approach worked.

first_imgAfter receiving proposals from the Opposition and Government side, Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chair retired Justice Claudette Singh will make a final decision on the timeframe for elections today and communicate same to President David Granger.President David GrangerGECOM Chair Retired Justice Claudette SinghThis was announced by both Opposition and Government-nominated Commissioners at the conclusion of a meeting on Wednesday. Opposition-nominated Commissioner Sase Gunraj first made the announcement that Justice Singh would be making her decision in the morning.Afterwards, Commissioner Vincent Alexander elaborated on what took place at Wednesday’s meeting. He noted that fellow Government Commissioner Charles Corbin and Gunraj made presentations on various timelines for holding elections.“Commissioner Corbin made a written proposal, which proposed March (2020), with possible negotiations to bring it down to an earlier time. Now it’s up to the Chairman to make a determination, which she said she would do after studies and contacting advisers, an announcement will be made,” Alexander said.Alexander further explained that Corbin had proposed that the encoding of registrants’ data that was gathered during GECOM’s House-to-House Registration could be done concurrently with the extraction of a preliminary list and Claims and Objections.Meanwhile, GECOM later released a statement in which it said that Commissioners Gunraj, Robeson Benn and Bibi Shadick insisted on a November 2019 date for the holding of elections, while Commissioner Corbin made his proposal.“Justice Singh undertook to study the submission, consult with the Secretariat, and based on all the information available to her make a decision on the way forward. Justice Singh will communicate this decision to the President in accordance with the mandate of the Commission (today),” GECOM said in the statement.While the Opposition has insisted elections could be held this year, the Government Ccommissioners have been pushing for elections next year. President David Granger has, meanwhile, repeatedly said that he was awaiting the advice of GECOM before he can set an election date, despite Article 61 of the Constitution of Guyana empowering him to dissolve Parliament and set a set for elections.The responsibility for GECOM to set a date, instead of him, was again repeated in an address to the nation on Monday following a meeting with Carter Center representatives – a meeting during which he promised the organisation not to delay but to act swiftly once GECOM advises him.During the address, President Granger repeated the substance of previous statements; that GECOM is an independent agency and that he has to await advice from GECOM before he can name an election date.The constitutional deadline for holding elections, as set out by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), has meanwhile expired as of Wednesday. When it made its July 18 ruling on the no confidence cases, the CCJ had said that the effect of the No-Confidence Motion was on pause while the cases were being litigated.That process, CCJ President Adrian Saunders had clearly said, was no longer on pause following the court’s June 18, 2019 ruling, which upheld the validity of the No-Confidence Motion and, thus, triggered the need for fresh elections.In keeping with the constitutional three-month provision once a No-Confidence Motion is passed, this would mean that General and Regional Elections should have been held on or before September 18, 2019.last_img read more

first_img 12 In: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester) – £6.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Riyad Mahrez’s fantastic early season performances appeared to have dropped off a few weeks ago, however, the Algerian has now recorded two assists in his last two games. With Leicester facing a relatively easy run of fixtures, Mahrez will have the opportunity to build on this and once again return to his point-scoring best. The League Cup is a Fantasy Premier League manager’s nightmare.Well, every competition in which your players could get injured is a nightmare, but this week that competition was the League Cup and for those of us who had Theo Walcott in our sides – it’s been a ‘mare!At first it looked like he would be rested, but then, after a team-mate’s injury, Walcott was thrust into the action on a cold Tuesday night in Sheffield despite having not been allowed the proper amount of time to warm up.The inevitable happened and he’s out for three weeks, so now we’re here. Click through this gallery to find out who the best possible replacements for Walcott are, while also getting the lowdown on all the other transfers you might need to make this week.Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might need to make this week by clicking the right arrow above… 12 Out: Theo Walcott (Arsenal) – £8.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – For those of us who had Theo Walcott in our sides, it has been a nightmare week. The Arsenal forward picked up an injury in the club’s League Cup defeat on Tuesday and will be out for just under a month. Out: Bafetimbi Gomis (Swansea) – £6.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A player whose early season form has definitely dropped off is Swansea’s Bafetimbi Gomis. All of Gomis’ four goals so far this season all came within his first four games! Since then the striker has gone six without a Premier League goal. Out: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) – £5.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the man whose injury led to Theo Walcott joining him in the treatment room when he replaced his team-mate less than five minutes into the Sheffield Wednesday game. Although it would be fairly harsh to drop him just for this, you’re going to have to take him out of your fantasy team regardless as it is expected he will be out for just under a month too. In: Bacary Sagna (Manchester City) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Zabaleta’s replacement in the City side will surely be Bacary Sagna; he should probably be the replacement in your fantasy team, too. 12 12 12 12 Out: Memphis Depay (Manchester United) – £8.0m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Almost 10 per cent of you Fantasy Premier League managers out there still have Memphis Depay in your teams. What are you thinking!? Not only is the Dutchman an injury doubt for United’s trip to Crystal Palace this week, but he also has not found any sort of consistent form for the Red Devils since signing in the summer. Out: Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City) – £5.8m – Click the right arrow for more advice – It seems the curse of the League Cup didn’t just strike at Arsenal this week, as Pablo Zabaleta suffered a recurrence of his previous knee injury on Wednesday night. It is unknown how long the Argentine will be out for. 12 In: Dimitri Payet (West Ham) – £8.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A similarly priced replacement for Theo Walcott in your midfield is West Ham’s in form Frenchman Dimitri Payet. He has scored two goals and been credited with an assist in his last three games, as he continues to thrive in England. In: Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) – £8.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – With almost no other midfielders left due to injury, it is certain Mesut Ozil will be starting for Arsenal over the next few weeks! The questions lie in whether the German can retain his current form – Ozil has a goal and FOUR assists in his last THREE league games for the Gunners, but is well known for his inconsistency. 12 12 Out: Phil Jagielka (Everton) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Everton’s Phil Jagielka was another defender hit by a knee injury this week. The problem, which occurred in last Saturday’s match against Arsenal, will keep the centre-back out of action for over two months. 12 12 In: Jeffrey Schlupp (Leicester City) – £5.0m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A suitable replacement for Jagielka could be Leicester’s Jeffrey Schlupp. The Ghanaian left back offers the prospect of earning points at both ends of the pitch – having already scored a goal and been credited with an assist in this year’s campaign. 12 In: Harry Kane (Spurs) – £9.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – In stark contrast, Harry Kane is a player who seems to be starting to turn his poor early season form around. Last week’s hat-trick has made Kane one of the most desirable players for Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of the upcoming gameweek.last_img read more
