Latest Injury Update For Ohio State Star DE Nick Bosa

first_imgohio state issues injury update on nick bosaNick Bosa, arguably the best defensive player in college football, suffered a lower-body injury in the second half of the game against TCU. Here is the latest on the injury to Bosa and his status moving forward.Ohio State trainers had Bosa go into the locker room to get checked out after his injury. He was in the locker room for several minutes before reappearing on the sideline in street clothes.Bosa watched the rest of the game from the bench. He had a noticeable limp when walking back onto the field.ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor then reported that Bosa had suffered a “lower abdomen strain,” per Ohio State. Bosa could be seen looking frustrated on the sideline, talking with some of his teammates.Ohio State’s interim coach, Ryan Day, was asked about Bosa following the game. He didn’t have much of an update.Bosa is continuing to be evaluated.Ohio State acting head coach Ryan Day did not have an update postgame on Nick Bosa’s health. Said he is being evaluated right now.— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) September 16, 2018The loss of Bosa is a huge one for Ohio State. The Buckeyes have a ton of talent on defense, but none quite like him. Bosa made a huge impact on the game against TCU, forcing a fumble that led to a defensive touchdown.Ohio State has a somewhat easy game coming up, hosting Tulane at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes travel to State College, Pa. in two weeks, though, to take on Penn State in what could be the biggest Big Ten game of the season.OSU would like very much to have Bosa back in uniform for that contest. However, his longterm health is what’s most important – he might be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft – and it’s still unclear how long it’s going to take him to recover.Stay tuned for more injury updates on Bosa. Ohio State will likely have more news on his status early this week.last_img read more

Tom Brady Reacts To Michigan’s Loss To Ohio State

(Photo by Rey Del Rio/Getty Images)Superstar athletes, they’re just like us on social media after a big college football game. After Ohio State’s dominance of Michigan, we got a fun interaction between Buckeyes fan LeBron James and former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady.James obviously didn’t attend Ohio State, but he famously grew up in nearby Akron, and was drafted by and played two stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers.The Buckeyes men’s basketball program has a LeBron James locker in its locker room, and the team often gets outfitted with the newest LeBron Nike sneakers.After the Ohio State Buckeyes blasted Michigan 62-39, LeBron James’ celebratory post drew a comment from Tom Brady.LeBron’s distinctly M-less post looks a lot like the ones you’d see from any Buckeye fan after that game.Brady, to his credit, is taking things relatively well, and even joked about his Wolverines’ inability to get over the hump against their hated rival.Ouch, Tom pic.twitter.com/KfCcVyKpmn— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) November 24, 2018Ohio State has now won 14 of 15 its last 15 games against Michigan. That kind of domination is rare for such a massive rivalry between powerhouse programs.That won win came in the year between Jim Tressel’s dismissal, and the hiring of Urban Meyer. Luke Fickell served as interim head coach that season.The last time that Ohio State lost to Michigan in Columbus was 2000. That Wolverines team featured Brady at quarterback.last_img read more

Could 12-0 Notre Dame End Up Missing The Playoff?

first_imgBrian Kelly standing with his Notre Dame players as they stretch before a game.MIAMI GARDENS, FL – JANUARY 07: Head coach Brian Kelly of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish watches warmups before the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship game at Sun Life Stadium on January 7, 2013 in Miami Gardens, Florida. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Five of the six major College Football Playoff contenders were in action today, playing in conference championship games. Notre Dame football was, of course, not.The Fighting Irish likely have their ticket punched to the four-team field, with a 12-0 record on the season.It doesn’t seem very likely at all that a two-loss Georgia could steal Notre Dame’s bid either, so the SEC Championship is likely a good result for Brian Kelly’s team, if it matters much at all. If Kirby Smart’s team crashes the party on the strength of the eye test, it will be in the fourth spot, in all likelihood.There is one predictive model that is not so sure about Notre Dame football’s College Football Playoff destiny.Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight has a College Football Playoff model that has been operating for weeks, and it has continually downplayed Notre Dame’s chances, even as others assume the Fighting Irish are certain to make it in.The peril for the Fighting Irish stems from the fact that both Oklahoma and Ohio State are pretty strong contenders. This is probably the strongest 1-through-6 teams that we’ve had since the dramatic first year of the Playoff, when those same Buckeyes jumped both TCU and Baylor in the final week to crash the field.They, of course, went on to capture the national championship.Oklahoma has already won its match-up, and looked pretty good doing it. Ohio State is up 14-7 on Northwestern as of this writing. The Buckeyes will probably win, and style points definitely matter based on 2014, something the FiveThirtyEight model doesn’t allow users to factor in themselves.If the Buckeyes win, the model gives Ohio State a 64-percent chance of making the field, just one-percent less than Notre Dame, with Oklahoma having a better shot than both.FiveThirtyEight's playoff predictor with Ohio State and Clemson wins assumed.The numbers here don’t really square with what we all assume about the race. Of course, the thing to remember is that the selection committee can wipe things clean week to week, and the only true goal is to get the “four best teams.”Right now, that almost definitely includes Alabama and Clemson. It could even include a two-loss Georgia. Oklahoma has a great case. Ohio State is a classic power, and they’ve been on both sides of the cut line in fairly controversial fashion. And, of course, Notre Dame is undefeated, but if the committee wants to find an argument to leave them out, it can find one.The best argument against Notre Dame: a schedule that largely underperformed.The Fighting Irish opened the season with a very nice win over Michigan. After that, however, many of the teams that projected to be strong opponents didn’t turn out that way.Stanford, Virginia Tech, Navy, Florida State, and USC all performed below expectation this year, some woefully so. The only team that definitely exceeded expectation was Syracuse, which Notre Dame blasted. The Orange are 9-3. Pitt and Northwestern each won their divisions, but the Panthers and Wildcats are 7-5 and 8-4 respectively, right in line with what you expect of them. Two of the teams remaining, the MAC’s Ball State and SEC also-ran Vanderbilt, lost by single-digits each in South Bend.An important thing to remember in trying to figure out the top four is that the committee is just going to say what it wants to justify their four.There’s no formula, there’s no checkbox, it’s just who they want.— The Solid Verbal (@SolidVerbal) December 2, 2018So yes, it is exceedingly likely that Notre Dame makes the College Football Playoff, but as Baylor and TCU fans learned a few years ago, nothing is official until Selection Sunday.last_img read more

Virat Kohli needs no protection in Indian batting lineup: Sunil Gavaskar

first_imgVirat Kohli needs no protection in Indian batting lineup: Sunil GavaskarOver the last decade, Virat Kohli has scored 39 ODI hundreds in his career with as many as 32 centuries coming at No. 3.advertisement India Today Web Desk MumbaiFebruary 15, 2019UPDATED: February 15, 2019 22:28 IST Virat Kohli has been India’s most prolific run-getter in ODIs over the last few years (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli will be returning to lead India in the ODI and T20I series vs AustraliaThe 30-year-old has amassed 8440 runs at No.3 at an average of 62.98The Delhi batsman has played 37 ODIs at No.4 scoring 1744 runs at 58.13Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar is of the opinion that Virat Kohli is the perfect choice to bat for the team at No.3 in the ICC World Cup but can look to drop down the order if the need arises.Gavaskar said there is no need for the team management to protect the world’s best batsman in the lineup but if India lose any one of the openers early on in a big run chase, then the team can think about sending Kohli in at No.4.”The best batsman in the world needs no protection in the batting order. But sometimes you have to assess the conditions. There could be a lot of swing and movement in the air in England… and if the opposition makes over 350 and India lose the first wicket early, then Kohli could be protected and sent at No.4.”This is the very reason why it is really important for India to select its third opener who is technically sound. Because the ball swings and seams around in England. But if the conditions are not very different then Kohli should bat at No.3,” Gavaskar told India Today.Over the last decade, Kohli has scored 39 ODI hundreds in his career. As many as 32 of those hundreds came batting at No. 3. Kohli does not have a bad record at No. 4 either: he has scored 1929 runs when batting at that position including seven hundreds.Gavaskar’s comments came even as India head coach Ravi Shastri had stated that India won’t be hesitant to shuffle the batting order and play Virat Kohli at No. 4 at the World Cup.advertisementIndia have been having issues with the middle-order and are being looked at as a top-heavy unit. However, the good batting form of Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav and veteran MS Dhoni should give India confidence in the lead up to the much-anticipated tournament of the year.”The good thing about this Indian top-three is we can separate them, if conditions and situations demand. Someone like Virat Kohli can go to number four, and we can put a good number three to bring more balance to the batting line-up. That’s flexibility for you, and for big tournaments like the World Cup, you have to be flexible to see what’s the best balance for the side. So we will decide that (accordingly in England).”Maybe Rayudu, or someone else, could bat at number three, and Kohli comes in at number four. We wouldn’t want to disturb the opening combination. Separating the top-three could make the batting stronger,” Shastri had told Cricbuzz.Also Read | Virat Kohli can bat at No.4 depending on conditions in England: Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | Both Vijay Shankar and Hardik Pandya for World Cup?

Virat Kohli does not have to be the only leader in the Indian side: Jonty Rhodes

first_imgVirat Kohli does not have to be the only leader in the Indian side: Jonty RhodesFormer South Africa cricketer Jonty Rhodes said the Indian team has got a fine balance of youth and experienced so he doesn’t have to be the only leader within the side.advertisement Rasesh Mandani MumbaiMay 15, 2019UPDATED: May 15, 2019 20:17 IST Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni (IANS Photo)HIGHLIGHTSJonty Rhodes said Virat Kohli doesn’t have to be the only leader in the Indian sideRhodes said Kohli has the likes of MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma for adviceRohit Sharma will be the vice-captain of the side for World Cup 2019Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore was forced to be content with the wooden spoon in IPL 2019. That’s three times in a row that RCB finished in the bottom half of the points table.But when Virat Kohli dons the captain’s hat for team India, things change completely. Statistically, Virat is the most successful Indian skipper in one day cricket, with winning rate of close to 74 percent in the 68 games he has led India. That comfortably beats MS Dhoni’s captaincy record of winning 59.50 percent games out of the 200 he has led India in.Does it boil down to superior personnel that Virat Kohli has while leading team India? How much does it help that he has vice captain Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni beside him in making real time tactical moves?Former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes thinks there are no bragging rights to be won in singularly leading a team to success and sees no harm in having multiple leaders in different departments in a side.”It’s important as a leader that you have to lead by example. But the interesting thing is you don’t always have to lead from the front. Dhoni’s example was of setting incredible standards on fitness and control mindset point of view. So there are different styles of leadership. Kohli’s style is to take things by the scruff of the neck and he likes to impose his stamp on the game. It’s fine when you are doing well but you also have to inspire the guys around you. The Indian team has got a fine balance of youth and experienced so he doesn’t have to be the only leader within the side,” he tells India Today.advertisementRohit Sharma, the most successful IPL captain with four trophies, will serve as Virat’s deputy at World Cup 2019. India’s leader of the 2011 winning World Cup campaign MS Dhoni makes a lot of decisions for Virat when the captain chooses to field in the outfield. Jonty sees nothing wrong in that.”As a captain, sure you make all the decisions. But when you have senior players, it’s trusting your senior players to be leaders in their departments. Because there is so much pressure on you as a captain. You might have more time in 50 overs’ as opposed to a T20, but you still want to be making the right decisions,” he says.Also Read | When MS Dhoni suggested a Rs 10,000 fine, no one was ever late again for team meetingsAlso Read | IPL 2019: Why Virat Kohli has been unable to do what Rohit and Dhoni do so oftenAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

If you’re like most fellas, you probably don’t like to be anywhere near an iron. Irons are hot, they’re kind of hard to use, and ironing takes time away from other important activities, such as chopping down trees and taking shots of whiskey.There is such a thing as non-iron clothes, but they come with a price: they’re treated with formaldehyde. Yikes! Isn’t that one of the main ingredients in embalming fluid? Sure, sometimes you can feel like a dead man walking when you’re at work, but c’mon, formaldehyde?That’s where the heroes at Twillory come in. No, Twillory is not the name of a magical realm in a children’s fantasy novel, but rather a new direct-to-consumer menswear startup. Founded in 2014, Twillory has already made quite a splash in the world of menswear, and they’ve just changed the game again thanks to their new non-iron dress shirts.Last week Twillory announced the release of a revolutionary new type of chemical treatment for dress shirts, which they’re calling “SafeCotton.” SafeCotton doesn’t have any of the harmful effects of formaldehyde. What are those harmful effects, you ask? According to a report from the United States Government Accountability Office, formaldehyde in textiles can cause rashes, skin irritation, headaches, and has even been linked to lung cancer.Related: How to Choose the Right Dress ShirtTwillory has been working to patent SafeCotton for the past two years, and it’s finally available for purchase. It’s the first and only formaldehyde-free non-iron dress shirt on the market, and you can get two for just $99.
