ESPN Predicts The Winner Of Notre Dame-Florida State Game

first_imgNotre Dame Fighting Irish stadium.SOUTH BEND, IN – SEPTEMBER 16: A general view is seen as the Michigan Wolverines run an offensive play against the defense of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish September 16, 2006 at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana. (Photo by Chris Chambers/Getty Images)In a normal season, a game vs. Florida State  would be more of a concern than the one a week later against Syracuse. Of course, this is not a normal year in the ACC, but that might help Notre Dame football’s College Football Playoff hopes.The Fighting Irish are currently No. 3 in the playoff rankings. With no conference championship to add a valuable data point at year’s end, Notre Dame probably needs to run the table to earn a spot.This weekend, ND hosts Florida State, usually an ACC power, but a team in deep turmoil over the last two seasons. The Seminoles are just 4-5 on the season, and in deep trouble of missing a bowl.Notre Dame is a 16-point favorite at home. Even with starting quarterback Ian Book out, that may be low.ESPN’s Football Power index has Notre Dame football as a major favorite over Florida State.The analytics model gives the Fighting Irish a 90.9-percent chance to win the game.ESPN FPI prediction for Notre Dame vs. Florida State.On one hand, Florida State remains very talented, which makes this nearly 91-percent number jarring.On the other, the ‘Noles haven’t looked good all year, and Notre Dame has a top defense, and has won plenty of games with Brandon Wimbush at quarterback, even if the offense is not at full capacity with him in.This is the final home game in South Bend for the Fighting Irish this season. Next week, it plays a Shamrock Series game at Yankee Stadium against the No. 13 Syracuse Orange, and finishes with a game at USC.The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC.last_img read more

Ohio State defeated Wisconsin 38-17. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)Ohio State is struggling against Maryland Terrapins today, as the Buckeyes could be looking ahead to the upcoming rivalry game with Michigan.While the defense is downright putrid right now, the Buckeyes are having success with their running game. In one quarter of play, J.K. Dobbins has over 60 rushing yards.Unfortunately for Ohio State, that recent success could decline with the latest injury to Thayer Munford. During the Buckeyes’ last drive, the starting left tackle was down on the field after getting hit in the knee.Thayer Munford exits the game for Ohio State. Took a blow to the lateral (outside) of his right knee. Concern for medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury. Being evaluated on the sideline now #buckeyes— Dr. Brandon Bowers (@blbowers12) November 17, 2018The extent of the injury is still up in the air, as it recently occurred.Considering that Munford left the field with assistance from the trainers, there’s a strong chance that he could miss time.Thayer Munford limping slowly off the field with assistance from trainers.— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) November 17, 2018If the Buckeyes are without Munford for the remainder of the game, this offense could have to rely on Dwayne Haskins even more.For now, Joshua Alabi will replace Munford at left tackle.Maryland currently leads 17-3 over Ohio State.

Clemson Reportedly Prepped All Bowl Season For Alabama, Not Notre Dame

first_imgclemson head coach dabo swinney celebrates during national titleSANTA CLARA, CA – JANUARY 07: Head coach Dabo Swinney of the Clemson Tigers looks on during warm ups prior to the CFP National Championship against the Alabama Crimson Tide presented by AT&T at Levi’s Stadium on January 7, 2019 in Santa Clara, California. (Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)Clemson dominated both Notre Dame and Alabama to win its third national championship this past week. According to one SEC Network analyst, Dabo Swinney & Co. used an interesting approach to get it done.Cole Cubelic reported Friday morning that he was told by a staff member at Clemson that the Tigers used the majority of bowl season to prepare for Alabama. The team reportedly only prepared for Notre Dame, its first opponent, for a week.Notre Dame fans surely won’t like hearing that. If true, the Tigers were confident enough in their ability to beat the Fighting Irish without having to game plan much.If true, Clemson clearly viewed Alabama as the better opponent.Spoke to a staff member at Clemson. Tigers prepped for Bama all bowl season & spent just one week on Notre Dame.Had the confidence to spend much less time on ND & devoted most of December to Alabama. #NationalChampionship— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) January 11, 2019There’s no word on whether Clemson prepared for Oklahoma at all. The Sooners lost to the Crimson Tide in the other semifinal game.It was my first thought as well.— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) January 11, 2019This does make some sense. The College Football Playoff is very much an all-or-nothing event. Winning one game doesn’t win you the national title – you need to win both. So Clemson’s coaching staff may have focused on Alabama because they realized they’d need to beat the Crimson Tide either way to win it all.One former Clemson player – Eric Maclain – disputes Cubelic’s claim.I spoke to Clemson Coaches, this is completely false. “Quite the opposite” I was told. Spent bowl season preparing for Notre Dame. Only spent a week on Alabama… https://t.co/jLZR9qrLxk— Eric Mac Lain (@Mr_Clemson) January 11, 2019Whatever Clemson did, it worked. The Tigers were clearly the better team in both games.last_img read more

Sporting News Ranks 20 Best College Football Programs Of The Decade

first_imgalabama head coach nick saban in the national titleATLANTA, GA – JANUARY 08: Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide walks on the field during warm ups prior to the game against the Georgia Bulldogs in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on January 8, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)Nick Saban took over Alabama ahead of the 2007 season, after a pretty down period for the Crimson Tide. In that time period, he has become arguably the greatest coach in program history, and his team is the defining one of the decade, which comes to a close this season.He isn’t without rival though. Dabo Swinney elevated a middling Clemson program to national superpower status over the last few years. That includes a four-game split with Alabama in the College Football Playoff, with wins in two of three national title games over the last four years.When someone puts out a college football ranking, it is a fair bet that Alabama and Clemson come in at the top, no matter what the measure is. That is the case with Sporting News‘ new measure of the top 20 programs of the last decade.Starting with the 2010 season, the publication put together a ranking using a point system based on these criteria: National championships: 10 points each National title game appearances: 5 points each College Football Playoff appearances: 5 points each New Year’s Day Six/BCS bowl appearances: 3 points each Heisman Trophy winners: 2 points eachThat’s not all: Overall winning percentage, All-Americans and NFL Draft picks first-round picks were awarded with a poll style 15-1 score. Ties were broken by the team with the higher ranking heading into this season.Unsurprisingly, Alabama football is No. 1 by a large margin in Sporting News‘ decade ranking of college football programs.The Tide have 166 points, ahead of second place Clemson’s 105.5.Nick Saban won his first national championship at Alabama with in 2009, and the Crimson Tide tacked on four more this decade. They’ve reached the College Football Playoff all five times and have played for the national championship in six of nine seasons this decade. If not for the Kick Six, it would have been seven. Alabama also leads in winning percentage, draft picks and All-Americans. It is the complete program.From there, it is another precipitous drop to No. 3 Ohio State, which sits at 78.5 points. Florida State, another national champion this decade, has 69 points at No. 4.Auburn, the fifth national championship-winning program this decade, has been more up and down than other teams on the list. At 34 points, the Tigers sit at No. 9.Other major programs included in the list: Oklahoma (No. 5), Notre Dame (No. 11), Georgia (No. 12), and Michigan (No. 19).Head to Sporting News for the full list and write-ups for all 20 teams.last_img read more

Shaw got Delhi off to a flyer in their first knockout match in 7 years as he took the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers to the cleaners inside the powerplay.Shaw was handed an early reprieve when Basil Thampi dropped him at mid-off off the bowling of Mohammad Nabi. The teenager though capitalised on the extra life and put pressure on the likes of Khaleel Ahmed and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.Shaw took the attack to India pacer Bhuvneshwar in the fifth over, hitting him for six and two boundaries as Delhi Capitals collected 17 runs off it. Shaw went after star leg-spinner Rashid Khan as well as Delhi finished with 55 for 0 after the powerplay overs.Shaw though was undone by a fast bouncer from Khaleel Ahmed. The Delhi Capitals opener perished for 56 in the 11th over when trying to pull one into the stands.advertisementShaw had been struggling for form in IPL 2019. After the 99 he scored against Kolkata Knight Riders on March 30, Shaw had been struggling for consistency and didn’t manage to cross the 45-run mark until Wednesday.Shaw, who missed India’s tour of Australia in 2018-19 with an injury, desperately needs some runs under his belt.

Abhi main inko ghar tak chhod ke aaunga yahin se.”Last week, at the launch of the song Zinda from Bharat, Katrina explained why she never likes or comments on any of Salman’s posts. “You know, it’s not intentional, but now that you say it, I’m thinking about it and yeah,” she said.advertisementIn Bharat, Salman will be sporting five different looks, including his young Maine Pyar Kiya look.

(Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAustralia retained the Ashes in England for the first time since 2011Steve Smith is in form of his lifetime as he amassed 671 runs in 5 innings thus farPacer Pat Cummins finished with 7/103 to avoid a draw in 4th Ashes TestAustralia’s media turned the praise up to 11 as they basked in Tim Paine’s side retaining the Ashes in Manchester on Sunday, which also closed 18 months of introspection and abuse following a ball-tampering scandal that tore the team apart.Fast bowler Pat Cummins finished with match figures of 7-103, while former captain Steve Smith scored 293 runs at Old Trafford as they sealed an 185-run win that ensured they retained the sport’s oldest trophy with a match to spare.The tourists lead the series 2-1 with just the final game starting on Thursday at The Oval remaining, ensuring that Paine would be the first Australian captain to bring the Ashes home from England since Steve Waugh in 2001.Australia looked manifold, unified, overwhelming, and almost purified by their victory and perhaps, to an extent, they were, Gideon Haigh wrote in The Australian on Monday.After the sorrows and setbacks of the last 18 months, the country’s cricket has something to celebrate at last.The Australians were thrown into turmoil 18-months ago when Smith, his vice-captain David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft were banned for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.The scandal had far-reaching consequences for the sport in Australia with two independent reviews, a promise to overhaul the side’s win-at-all-costs’ mentality and culture, and a clean-out of high-profile administrators.Paine, who replaced Smith, was praised for his ability to unify the team and change the culture in tandem with coach Justin Langer, with former fast bowler Jason Gillespie tweeting a picture of the wicketkeeper with the one word Leadership.advertisementBANNED, BOOED, MOCKED”As a man and sportsman, he may never redeem himself to universal satisfaction; as a batsman, he has moved into elite company, maybe even the most elite,” Haigh wrote.Such has been Smith’s impact throughout the series, Fox Sports’ Jacob Kuriype, channelling mockumentary’ comedy film Spinal Tap, gave Smith an 11/10 in his player ratings.”There’s an inevitability about Smith,” Kuriype wrote. It doesn’t matter what you do, he’s going to score runs.””It says everything that 82 is his lowest score of the series so far. A perfect 10 isn’t enough in this instance, so we’ll turn this one up to 11.”The Age’s Greg Baum also acknowledged Smith’s contribution with the bat and praised the bowling attack for ensuring that his efforts were not wasted.”The attack had honoured the titanic performance of Steve Smith,” Baum wrote. “The job was done. The Ashes were going home with them.””These will be forever Smith’s Ashes.”Cummins, whose 24 wickets at 17.41 have elevated him to the top of the test rankings, was also singled out after he took two wickets in two balls late on the fourth day that effectively ended England’s chances of chasing a victory target of 383 runs.”In the end that final innings should be viewed as Cummins work, the key precipitant in breaking an Ashes drought,” the Guardian’s Geoff Lemon wrote.”Just another entry on his list of accomplishments, and looking good while doing it.”The worst part is, he’s so bloody likable that you can’t even hate him for being perfect.Also Read | Watch: Australia players sing John Williamson’s True Blue after retaining Ashes UrnAlso Read | Ashes: Steve Smith was the difference, says Joe Root after losing 4th Test vs AustraliaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Cardamon is the Indestructible, Minimalist Wallet You’ve Been Waiting For

first_imgCardamon was founded in Squamish, British Columbia, in 2014 by Nathan Kukathas, David Pearson, and Josh Simpson with the vision of challenging conventional approaches to design and production and the goal of manufacturing textiles so advanced that they last a lifetime.Nathan Kukathas, Design Director for Cardamon with over twenty years of experience creating award-winning products and gear for brands like Arc’teryx, Sea to Summit, and RYU (to name a few), said of Cardamon’s flagship project, “We chose the wallet as our first project because it’s a very personal and familiar tool we use every day and saw that we could enhance it by engineering a new material, simplifying the design, and distilling it into its purest form.”We were given a sneak-peek sample of the Cardamon minimalist wallet that we’ve been toting around in our back pocket for a week now, and we can confirm that Cardamon has indeed simplified and distilled the wallet down to its purest form. Extremely thin, the Cardamon Wallet comes in at only 3.5 mm and barely weighs .7 ounces, meaning you won’t end up with that bulky bulge in your back pocket. Though slim, the wallet is not as minimalist as a mere card-holder, so you don’t have to worry about tossing your grocery membership or all-important health insurance ID in order for Cardamon to be functional. With an eight-card capacity and currency compatibility with all major North, Central, and South American money, the Cardamon Wallet holds everything you need and nothing more.Cut from a single sheet of MerdianShell, a 300D Nylon-Polyester proprietary fabric made in-house at Cardamon, the wallet is water-resistant, stain-resistant, and guaranteed to last a lifetime. Seriously, if your wallet ever wears out or is destroyed, Cardamon will replace it free of charge–demonstrating their dedication to this high-quality, long-lasting accessory.The strength and durability of the wallet comes not only from the original MerdianShell fabric, but also from its construction methods. Made with advanced extrusion, thermoform, and welding techniques, the Cardamon Wallet eliminates seams, stitching, and is virtually zero-waste. According to Cardamon, “every square inch of fabric that gets cut, is used to build the wallet,” so you can feel good about its minimal environmental impact and be confident that it will hold up forever without fraying threads or loose corners.The Cardamon Wallet will be released in five colorways and two sizes.

Government Committed to Energy Diversification – Robinson

first_imgState Minister for Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson, has re-emphasised the Government’s commitment to energy diversification and conservation, noting that money saved on energy can be injected into the economy. Speaking at a stakeholder workshop, hosted by the Ministry, in collaboration with Worldwatch Institute, at the Knutsford Court Hotel in Kingston on November 27, the State Minister told participants that, “we are committed to having 30 per cent of our energy mix from renewable sources by the year 2030.” “We are also examining other fuel sources…the LNG project is on the way; the government’s role has changed, but we are committed to having LNG in the country hopefully by 2015, and the Jamaica Public Service (JPS) is building a 360 megawatt plant in Old Harbour.” He further informed that the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) on November 26, issued a request for proposal for 115 megawatts of renewable energy, and that the first net billing customer has been connected. Net billing allows JPS customers who own renewable energy generators, such as wind turbines and photovoltaic (solar) systems, to generate electricity for personal use, as well as sell excess energy to the light and power company at wholesale prices set by the OUR. “We are also committed to conservation, and we have a project where we hope to achieve a 30 per cent cost savings in public sector energy conservation over a three-year period,” he stated, pointing out that as part of the project, there is an affirmative action policy in place for procurement, whereby any local company which has a bid that is within 15 per cent of an overseas company, will be awarded these contracts. “We believe we must develop local capacity and we must develop the expertise to solve our own challenges here,” Mr. Robinson said, adding that, “if we are able to successfully adopt these strategies, we can bring the cost of electricity down significantly.” Worldwatch is designing a low carbon energy roadmap for the Ministry, which will allow for better harnessing of renewable energy sources; provide solid socio-economic data; and provide recommendations that decision makers can execute to bring about a more sustainable energy future for the country. A Washington DC-based globally focused environmental research organisation, Worldwatch helps to inform policymakers and the public about the complex links between the world economy and its environmental support systems. One of its main objectives is universal access to renewable energy.last_img read more

Private Sector Entities Show Interest in Employing Teachers Following Job Fair

first_imgStory Highlights An increasing number of private sector entities are taking up the slack to employ teachers 300 resumes have been forwarded to eight private sector entities Teachers are being sought to fill a wide variety of jobs The Ministry of Education is reporting that following the hosting of a teachers’ job fair in August, some 300 resumes have been forwarded to eight private sector entities, which have expressed an interest in employing persons with teacher-training qualifications.This is in addition to about 1,000 teachers who registered with, or were screened by potential employers, many of whom were from the private sector.Participating organisations at the two-day fair included: the University College of the Caribbean (UCC), GoGSAT Limited, Sagicor Life Jamaica Limited, National Commercial Bank (NCB), Sandals Group, Kirk Distributors, Choices Career and Educational Services, Registrar General’s Department (RGD), Caribbean Maritime Institute (CMI) and the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF).Speaking with JIS News, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Mrs. Elaine Foster Allen, said an increasing number of private sector entities are taking up the slack to employ teachers that the public education system is unable to absorb within the current budgetary constraints.“Teachers are being sought to fill not only teaching vacancies, but a wide variety of jobs for which their skills set is suitable – financial advisors, sales/marketing representatives, hospitality industry workers, and military service,” she noted.Assistant Vice President for Sales and Distribution at Sagicor Life Jamaica, Mr. Merrick Plummer, who attended the job fair in search of financial advisors, said the training and experience of the teacher make him or her perform well in the field.The job of a financial advisor entails the sale and servicing of financial security products and Mr. Plummer believes teachers are potentially good at this job, because “the profession of teaching causes the individual to be well organized, a great listener, goal oriented and able to explain the (insurance) policies and provisions.”Resort chain, Sandals, also made 35 teachers happy during the job fair by interviewing and offering them jobs.“I came to the fair on the first day and I did not get an interview. I am so glad I returned on the second day,” an elated Physical Education (PE) teacher told JIS News.Sandals had expressed a preference for teachers with training in Human Ecology, who are suitable for employment in the areas of housekeeping and food services, but the resort chain also has a place for PE teachers in its recreational area.At the end of the job fair, Sandals requested additional resumes of teachers trained in Early Childhood Education for likely deployment to its family-oriented resort properties.According to Janelle deFreitas, Counsellor at Choices Career and Education Services, “understanding personality strengths and weaknesses puts persons at an advantage to finding out what they are good at and the natural skills they possess.”Ms. DeFreitas, who was one of several presenters at the job fair, counsels teachers to begin by taking a quiet moment with a pen and paper to identify their strengths and weaknesses. “Once they have identified their skills, teachers should market themselves  by networking,” she says.The Ministry of Education is also developing a data bank of unemployed teachers, which it will make available to potential employers.last_img read more
