first_imgbret bielema kenyan drakebret bielema kenyan drakeEarlier Monday morning, we showed you a video of Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema pulling what can only be described as a questionable move on Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson. It turns out it may not have been the only time the Razorbacks coach got physical with a member of the Crimson Tide.In the below video, also taken from Saturday’s contest, Bielema appears to bump Alabama running back Kenyan Drake out of bounds near the end of a play – again. Judge for yourself.Was it intentional? Regardless, it’s about to be the second viral video involving Bielema’s conduct during Saturday’s game.last_img

Video: Georgia Basketball Ran A Football Play For Quarterback Recruit Jacob Eason, It Didn’t Go Well

Head basketball coach Mark Fox tweeted out video from last weekend, when Eason was on campus, of his team proving that it needs a quarterback.

Police and protesters face off during antiG7 day of disruption in Quebec

first_imgQUEBEC – Police chased anti-G7 protesters through the streets of Quebec City on Friday, as small pockets of activists carried out a series of actions aimed at tiring out security forces and disrupting activities related to the summit.While the protesters occasionally blocked traffic and on one occasion set a pair of sofas on fire, as of early evening, their protests were largely peaceful as they played cat and mouse with police through the city streets and parks.They were closely followed at all times by a large police presence that included flashing sirens, helicopters, the occasional police dog and large contingents of officers marching in formation.Quebec City police said they arrested six people for unlawful assembly and one for obstructing the work of a police officer over the course of the day.“I don’t believe in democracy any more,” said one 28-year-old tattooed protester, who went by the name of Cantsin. “A lot of people here will tell you the same thing.”A few hours after a morning protest that briefly shut down a main highway to La Malbaie where the G7 was taking place, city police were forced to close the northbound direction of a major boulevard for about an hour after protesters set fire to lawn chairs and two couches in the middle of the road.Later, dozens of armed officers could be seen marching two-by-two through the narrow streets of Old Quebec City, banging batons on their plastic shields as they ordered small groups of protesters to disperse.Around noon, activists gathered in a shady park not far from the provincial legislature buildings, where their anti-capitalist peers set up a kitchen and served couscous, minestrone soup and bread pudding.Danielle Lambert, 58, said she wants wealth to be redistributed in society by having governments get serious about going after offshore tax havens.“It’s the least they can do,” she said, eating her couscous.Her friend, Marie-Christine Gagnon, 38, called the G7 meetings a “big charade.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau talks about the environment and then uses tax dollars to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline from Kinder Morgan for $4.5-billion, she said.By mid-afternoon, a few dozen protesters were facing off with police on the Plains of Abraham. Many were dressed in black and masked, as police in riot gear slowly surrounded the park.There, a masked woman confronted a handful of the officers, gesturing wildly as she accused them of violating the protesters’ rights.“We haven’t broken anything, we want to gather, we want to have the right to gather, and you’re taking that away from us!” she said.The protester, who declined to give her name, addressed the officers one by one by their badge numbers, questioning their values and asking them how they could support the hundreds of millions being spent on the summit.“You think it’s ok your parents (in seniors’ homes) eat potato puree while the big leaders eat foie gras?” she asked.Not all the demonstrations in Quebec City on Friday required a police presence.About 75 students from around the country travelled to the city with the World Vision humanitarian organization in support of girls living in conflict and disaster.Students wore white graduation robes and walked around the legislature buildings. A few of them wore black robes, symbolizing a specific woman for which they were marching.Toronto-native Cherie Wai, from University of Waterloo, was marching on behalf of Fatuma, a woman from Somalia who fled violence in her country and lived in a refugee camp in Kenya.“She worked really hard and got a scholarship to study in one of the best schools in Kenya and now she is studying at the University of Toronto in Health Science,” Wai said.The G7 summit is an annual gathering of the leaders from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan and Italy — which represent the majority of global wealth. The European Union also attends the summit as do other dignitaries from around the world. Canada has not hosted the summit since 2010.last_img read more

A Lazy OutOfShape Amateur Won Two More Super Bowls Than Tony Romo

The list of sub-par quarterbacks to win the Super Bowl despite being nothing more than “game managers” just grew by one. FiveThirtyEight’s own Walt Hickey has joined the ranks of Brad Johnson, Doug Williams and Trent Dilfer.Sure, Walt did it in a video game, while the other three did it while wearing cleats in real life, but the taste of victory was just as sweet. Walt’s triumph is courtesy of two Madden savants, Tim Curry and Luke Barr, who answered the call on our sports podcast Hot Takedown a few weeks ago. We laid down a challenge to see if anyone could win it all in Madden NFL 16 with Walt as their quarterback. Curry and Barr turned Walt’s depressing player ratings into a championship.Below are notes the two victors sent us about their journeys. As promised, we’ll be giving them a shoutout on this week’s podcast and sending them a signed poster of Walt in full pads.Curry, who won with the Philadelphia Eagles, provides a thrilling game report:I have done it. After smacking the Cowboys in the divisional game and beating the Seahawks in the NFC championship, Walt Hickey and the Eagles defeated the Buffalo Bills in an epic comeback, 21-17. After falling behind 14-0, Walt threw a pick with less than a minute left in the first half, leading to a Bills field goal. But the Eagles came out swinging in the second half, with Ryan Mathews taking a pitch from Walt 80 yards to the house. In the fourth quarter, Mathews hit another long option run, being caught at the 10. This time DeMarco Murray took it in for 6, bringing the game to 17-14 with just under two minutes to play.After the Bills recovered the onside kick attempt, the Eagles brought the house to stop the run three times, using up all three timeouts, but getting the ball back at their own 20 with 1:30 left. This time it was a mix of Murray and Mathews leading the way, with Murray taking a short pass 20 yards and Mathews finding another 30 on a pitch. With just under a minute, DeMarco found the end zone to give the Eagles the lead. The defense held, and Walt Hickey was a Super Bowl champion!And here’s Barr, who won with the Dallas Cowboys:Some observations:I ended with an 11-5 record, the 2nd seed and a first-round bye.He cannot throw downfield. Any throw more than ten yards downfield was almost always intercepted.The best routes to run were definitely screens and swing passes, he could hit those fairly reliably.Curl routes against bad cornerbacks in man coverage were also okay, but if he missed, it was usually an interception.I chose the Cowboys to play with because I thought the offensive line would help. Joseph Randle led the league in rushing with 1759 yards.Before the season I signed free agents Aldon Smith and Terence Newman and traded a draft pick for CB Josh Robinson. Terence Newman led the league in INTs with 12.Hickey’s quarterback rating of 42.6 was actually better than Matt Flynn’s who had a 40.2 rating on 76 attempts.Of Hickey’s 1872 yards, 1457 were gained after the catch.Here is Walt’s game log, individual stats and team stats. Walt is galled that, as a New York Giants fan, he won the Super Bowl with the Eagles and Cowboys. But that does make him better than Tony Romo and Sam Bradford. So he’s got that, at least.And there you have it. Once again, congrats to Tim and Luke. Now please go outside. Read more: How Madden Helped A Schlub Like Me Make It Into The NFL read more

Lets Overreact To FirstRound NBA Playoff Games

Embed Code More: Apple Podcasts | ESPN App | RSS | Embed FiveThirtyEight This week on Hot Takedown, we’re reacting to a series of upsets in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The Los Angeles Clippers pulled off the biggest comeback in playoff history, but we don’t necessarily think the Warriors should be too worried for the rest of the series. Other upsets included the No. 7 seed Orlando Magic defeating the No. 2 Toronto Raptors; that Game 1 victory had Mike Tuck on “Open Mike” from Orlando’s 96.9 The Game positing that Orlando is underrated in the Eastern Conference.

Or do we expect this to be his last big victory?Inspired by Tiger’s feat, our Rabbit Hole dives into other statistically improbable comebacks.Here’s what we’re looking at this week:Chris breaks down how the Warriors blew a 31-point lead.And he provides takeaways from the opening weekend of the NBA playoffs.As per usual, our eyes are glued to our NBA predictions.We can’t get enough of Tiger Woods’s comeback.The Washington Post digs into Tiger’s odds for the rest of the season and into 2020.ESPN analyzes great comeback stories across sports.From our Rabbit Hole, this excellent video about Lonnie Smith from SB Nation. read more

Womens Basketball Ohio State wins fourth straight with 6150 victory against Wisconsin

Ohio State guard Carmen Grande (1) dribbles the ball up the court in the second half of the game against Indiana on Jan. 10. Ohio State won 55-50. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThe Ohio State women’s basketball team (14-12, 10-7 Big Ten) continued its hot streak, winning 10 of its past 14 games, with a 61-50 win against Wisconsin(13-16, 4-13). Thursday’s game saw four players score 10 points or more, with redshirt senior guard Carmen Grande leading the way for Ohio State. Her 17 points along with three rebounds and five assists were key in giving the Buckeyes a substantial lead for most of the game. Also getting in on the action were freshman guard Janai Crooms, redshirt senior guard Carly Santoro and freshman forward Dorka Juhasz, who combined for 32 of the team’s 61 points. Crooms was hot early on helping the Buckeyes get off to an early lead in the first quarter. She was 4-of-8 from the field for 11 points to go with six rebounds. Moving into the second quarter, Santoro and Juhasz stepped up to take control of the game and get a 13-point lead heading into halftime. Santoro scored 11 points with two rebounds and two assists. Juhasz had a double-double with 10 points and 14 rebounds to contribute not only on the offensive side, but also being a key figure on the defensive side as well. Wisconsin could never quite get it going on the offensive side early on, but senior forward Marsha Howard kept the Badgers in the game with a 15-point performance along with seven rebounds and two assists. The second half was a bit of different story, as a 10-point Wisconsin run in the third quarter cut an 18-point Ohio State lead back down to a single-digit game. However, the Buckeyes countered with a nine-point run of their own to take a firm hold of the game again. Despite a nine-point run by Wisconsin in the fourth quarter, Ohio State burned enough clock to limit Wisconsin’s options. The Badgers were forced to foul to stay in the game, and the Buckeyes made enough free throws to get away with the win. The Buckeyes will close out the regular season with a rematch against Rutgers on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more
