Video: Colin Cowherd Is Unhappy That Coach K Lied About Dillon Brooks Exchange

first_imgColin Cowherd calls out Alabama on ESPN.COLIN cowherd alabama walmartSince Duke’s Sweet 16 loss to Oregon on Thursday night, there’s been plenty of chatter about Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski’s conversation with Oregon’s Dillon Brooks and his initial denial that he reprimanded Brooks for hitting a meaningless three-pointer in the final seconds to make the score 82-68. Krzyzewski apologized over the weekend for not being truthful about his exchange with Brooks but there were some who still felt disappointed with what he did.

Manitoba premier Winnipeg mayor want cooler heads in BoeingBombardier spat

first_imgWINNIPEG – Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is calling for more cooler heads and less overheated rhetoric in the burgeoning aerospace trade war centred around Boeing and Bombardier.It was a plea that was immediately rebuffed by Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard who has said “not a bolt, not a part, of course not a plane of Boeing” should enter Canada until the conflict is resolved.“I will not tone down. I will tone up if I need to do it,” Couillard said Thursday at Bombardier’s assembly plant in Mirabel, north of Montreal. “I will fight for Quebec.”The Quebec premier has called on Ottawa to take a hard line against Boeing after the U.S. Department of Commerce proposed a hefty 219 per cent duty on jets manufactured by rival Bombardier.The department’s preliminary findings say Bombardier benefited from improper government subsidies, giving it an unfair advantage when selling its C-Series jets south of the border.“It’s an unacceptable attack towards an industry, a province and a country and we shall prevail,” Couillard said.Earlier in the day, Pallister said Couillard’s emotional call for a Boeing boycott is understandable, but not helpful.“That overheated rhetoric and emotional language, though understandable because of the concerns the premier has …. is not necessarily as helpful as cooler heads and a demonstration of an understanding that our trade is a very important mutual benefit to Canadian and US economies,” Pallister said Thursday after an announcement in Morden, Man.“I would always be one who promotes open trade and encourage all to remember that there are mutual benefits in our relationships.”The Manitoba capital is home to a Boeing manufacturing facility that employs 1,400 people and is the third biggest aerospace centre in the country.Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman called Couillard’s comments unhelpful.“His comments do not appear to acknowledge the reality that Quebec is not the only province affected by this dispute,” Bowman said in a statement Thursday.“While I respect that the premier of Quebec is going to stand up for jobs in Quebec, his comments are an oversimplification of the dispute and are not helpful for the Canadian aerospace sector as a whole.”This dispute goes beyond a region of the country, he said.“Cooler heads need to prevail so we can continue to collectively find ways to grow this sector, not obstruct it.”Couillard argues the US$1 billion invested by the province in Bombardier’s C-Series program was not a subsidy and Bombardier is being targeted by its larger aerospace rival even though Boeing has also benefited from decades of government assistance.Unifor president Jerry Dias, who represents Boeing workers, said both Bombardier and Boeing receive government support. This trade dispute threatens the ability of government to support the industry, Dias said.“Boeing is playing a very dangerous game, not just for Bombardier but for themselves,” he said. “This whole thing is poisoning the well water.“If we don’t fight this now, the fallout can be just brutal.”But Pallister said the Canadian and American economies are so intertwined, he’s confident the two countries will weather the storm.“We have the strongest international co-operative relationship of any two countries in the world,” he said. “We will get through this.”— By Chinta Puxley in Edmonton, with files from Steve Lambert in Winnipeg and Ross Marowits in Montreallast_img read more

The Pats Comeback Was Incredible — Even If You Think The Falcons

The play he’s talking about came as the Falcons clung to a 28-20 lead with about four minutes left in regulation time. The Patriots had just finished scoring 17 unanswered points to pull to within a single score of Atlanta, and the Falcons had run a grand total of six offensive plays over that span before QB Matt Ryan started the drive at his own 10. Atlanta still had about a 92 percent chance of winning the game according to ESPN’s win probability model, but a window had been opened for the Pats.At first, the Falcons appeared to close it again. Ryan hit Devonta Freeman for a 39-yard gain to reach midfield, and a few plays later, Julio Jones made an amazing catch that seemed destined to join the pantheon of great Patriot-killing Super Bowl grabs. But on second and 11 from the New England 23, the Falcons decided to pass instead of running the ball and setting up an insurance field goal, and Ryan was sacked for a loss of 12. Between that and a 10-yard holding penalty on the subsequent play, the Falcons were pushed out of accurate kicker Matt Bryant’s field-goal range and had to punt the ball back to Brady.The rest, as they say, was history.If the Falcons had run the ball on those second and third downs instead, then kicked the field goal, they’d have forced the Patriots to mount an 11-point comeback with something like 2:30 to play — not an 8-point comeback with 3:30 to go. The odds of a team doing the former are about 3 percent; for the latter, 8 percent.The counter-argument, of course, is that 8 percent is still improbable. Even after the sack and the punt, the Falcons were still overwhelmingly likely to win the game. Only one Super Bowl in history had ever seen a team overcome longer second-half odds. (Granted, it was the Patriots’ victory two years ago.) In order to tie the game, Brady and the Pats still needed to:Convert a third-and-10 from their own 9;Complete a 23-yard pass to Julian Edelman, whose catch rivaled the greatest in Super Bowl history;Complete a 20-yard pass to Danny Amendola;Have James White scamper 20 more yards on two catches;Score a touchdown from the Falcons’ 1;Successfully pull off the 2-point conversion.If just one of those plays goes differently, we might be talking about Atlanta’s first Super Bowl title. And even after all that, the Pats still needed to stop Ryan and the Falcons from quickly driving for the game-winning score with under a minute left (which has happened before), and they needed luck on the opening coin toss of overtime and they needed a handful of big plays in OT in order to win. As you may have heard by now — perhaps from the eardrum-shattering sound of New England Patriots fans booing Roger Goodell — the Patriots are Super Bowl champs, having rallied back from a 28-3 deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 on Sunday. The comeback alone was historic, ranking as the most improbable in Super Bowl history, but there’s also a whole layer of history attached to the accomplishments of New England quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick, plus the revenge narrative of Deflategate. It’s a lot to keep track of.Amidst all the postgame analysis, however, there’s always a place for second-guessing the Super Bowl loser’s coach. And on Sunday night, New Yorker staff writer James Surowiecki provided an instant classic in the genre: Related: Hot Takedown Hot Takedown’s Super Bowl Special It’s true that the decision to pass instead of run and kick was the proverbial turning point, from which most subsequent plays saw the Pats increase their chances of winning until they hit 100 percent on White’s game-winning TD run. It’s also true that running the ball and going up 11 would have made the Pats’ comeback more difficult — and when you’re going up against the best coach/QB tandem ever, it’s generally not a good idea to gift them free win probability.But in the end, the Falcons still had plenty more chances to snuff out the Pats’ comeback from that point onward. Whether because of poor defense or Brady’s clutch-ness (or both), they didn’t — and it’s the totality of many plays that has us talking about Brady and Belichick’s legacies on Monday, and not crowning a new champion in Atlanta. read more

The Warriors Have An 85 Percent Chance Of Getting At Least 73

April 10@ SA32.6 Upcoming Warriors games 68<0.1%>99.9% April 9@ MEM82.7 712.699.7 The Spurs game is where things get muddy. I wrote a few days back about why prediction models tend to have trouble with end-of-season scenarios, but as the Warriors keep on winning, we can find some clarity. The Warriors and Spurs both won Wednesday night, leaving San Antonio five back in the loss column with seven to play for Golden State. That functionally locks up the 1-seed for the Warriors and leaves little reason for Gregg Popovich to play his starters in both games against Golden State.Complicating matters, the Spurs, like the Warriors, are undefeated at home. With a day of rest before and after the April 10 game against the Warriors, with Golden State on the second night of a back-to-back, San Antonio might just decide to play ball — CARM-Elo gives the Warriors just a 32.6 percent chance of winning if that happens. Then again, Popovich might run Kyle Anderson at the point for 40 minutes. It’s hard to tell with the Spurs.In a way, though, all you need to know about the Warriors’ late-season run can be found in those two plays up above. They’re still stylish as all hell, and they still deliver when it matters. It’s been a long season, and fatigue comes for every team this time of year, but if the quick-change shift to championship-level defense in the final four minutes or so of regulation and OT Wednesday night is anything to go by, there’s plenty left in the tank.Jay Boice contributed research. April 1vs. BOS89.2% April 3vs. POR90.1 700.399.9 WINSEXACTLY THIS MANY WINSAT LEAST THIS MANY WINS 7514.414.4 Using our CARM-Elo predictions, we now give the Warriors an 85.4 percent chance of breaking the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ record of 72 wins and a 97 percent chance of at least tying it. Our colleagues at ESPN Stats & Info, using a model based on their Basketball Power Index, put the chances of 73 or more wins at 80 percent (one of the key differences is that the Spurs have overtaken the Warriors in BPI and play Golden State twice more this season).The Jazz game might have been the toughest left on the schedule for the Warriors. Golden State was on the second night of a back-to-back, on the road, and playing a defense that is in the top 10 in efficiency for the season but is much more formidable when Rudy Gobert is in the lineup (he’s played in just 55 games this season). The relative difficulty of the Utah game — Golden State was “only” a 61 percent favorite according to CARM-Elo — is one reason the Warriors’ odds of winning 73 or more leapt from 66 percent two games ago to more than 85 percent now. Of the team’s remaining seven games, five are at home, and only one comes as the second leg of a back-to-back.Golden State’s next game is Friday, against the Celtics, and the Warriors are an 89.2 percent favorite, according to CARM-Elo. That’s followed by home games against the Blazers (90.1 percent), Timberwolves (95.6 percent) and Spurs (65.7 percent). 690.1>99.9 April 13vs. MEM93.4 7331.585.4 Chance Warriors finish with: April 7vs. SA65.7 April 5vs. MIN95.6 DATEOPPONENTWIN PROB. 7211.797.0 Here are the first points scored in Wednesday night’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Utah Jazz:And here are the last in regulation, when Golden State needed a last-second three to force overtime:The Warriors won easily in the extra period, mainly behind Draymond Green’s burly defending.

Ohio State womens volleyball runs out of gas in first loss of

In its third game of the season, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team suffered its first loss of the year Saturday against the No. 20 Oregon Ducks, 3-2. The No. 24-ranked Buckeyes opened up the Sports Imports DC Koehl Classic at St. John Arena with back-to-back wins against Houston and Toledo, 3-0. OSU, though, could not extend its winning streak to three as the Ducks outlasted the Buckeyes down the stretch Saturday. Playing its third game in two days, it appeared that fatigue and endurance were factors in the loss. “We came out with a lot of energy and played our game in the first couple of games,” said senior setter Amanda Peterson. “After we came out of the locker room for the third game, we kind of lost a little bit of energy at the beginning.” During the first two sets, the Buckeyes dominated early on the floor by winning both sets. As the game continued, however, the Buckeyes had several chances to close out on match points, but could not finish the game on a strong note. Senior outside hitter Emily Danks, who is an American Volleyball Coaches Association honorable mention All-American selection, tried to stay positive in the team’s first loss of the season. “The beauty of playing such tough competition at the beginning of the season is that it prepares us for the best volleyball conference in the country,” Danks said. “We can take a lot from this match. We’ve shown how strong we can come out and we just need to prove that we can maintain that energy, and finish at the end of games because we could have had it.” The Buckeyes were lead by a strong performance behind their four seniors in Danks, Peterson, outside hitter Mari Hole and middle blocker Mariah Booth, but the Ducks made their adjustments as their redshirt senior outside hitter, Alaina Bergsma, shifted into a new gear in the last three sets. “I thought we played really clean, solid, aggressive volleyball in the first two sets and did the game plan,” said Buckeyes coach Geoff Carlston. “Basically their best player Bergsma really stepped up and I got to give her credit for that. Our game plan broke down a little bit, and we just weren’t able to make the adjustments to slow her down.” In the end, the Buckeyes lost by five points in the last set, and let a chance at victory slip away in the final seconds. But with the season being so young, Danks and Peterson said they know the team will continue to get better. “(Oregon is) a really good team, and we’re just going to keep getting better, learn from our mistakes and keep on moving up,” Peterson said. Danks agreed with her teammate, and took it a step further by challenging herself and her teammates. “Everyday is a learning experience for me, whether it is physically or terms of leadership. So I am just going to continue to get better and not be complacent. I am going to take it up another notch by being more demanding of my teammates and myself,” she said. “(I need to) keep perfecting my shots, my serve and my defense so that at the end of the year, I know I got every ounce of talent I have out.” Carlston said he expects more from his seniors and believes that this unit is one of the best in the country. “It’s a tough loss because (Oregon is) one of the top teams in the country, as I feel we are too,” Carlston said. “We have a veteran team, and with four seniors starting, I am challenging them to step up every weekend because we have a very tough schedule.” Carlston said he was not happy with how his team responded during certain moments of the game, but knows that his team will continue to push each other to be better. “I am disappointed in how we responded at times towards the end of the match. I know were going to come back and work hard on Monday,” Carlston said. “You lose by four points and after three hours, it’s a tough loss, but this is a group that is going to grow from it, and as a staff grow from it and continue to get better.” OSU is next scheduled to play Binghamton at the Maryland Invitational on Friday, Aug. 31. read more
