first_imgAfter the final results from rivalry weekend served the College Football Playoff Selection Committee its worst nightmare on a silver platter, the 2016 conference championship week comes shadowed with uncertainties.The Big Ten West champions No. 6 University of Wisconsin battle the victors from the East, No. 7 Penn State University, in Indianapolis Saturday at 7 p.m. for both the 2016 Big Ten title and hope to crack the top four in Sunday’s final CFP Poll.Yet, perhaps what’s most bizarre about this year’s Big Ten Championship is the widely shared belief that the two title contenders, Wisconsin and Penn State, are the third and fourth best teams in the conference respectively.Football notes: Badgers look to avenge 2014 Big Ten Championship GameThe nightmare of Dec. 5, 2014 brings Sojourn Shelton back to a dark place. The 2014 Big Ten Championship Game Read…With a Washington or Clemson loss and a win over No. 6 Penn State in the Big Ten Championship Game this Saturday, UW would have promising odds to sneak into the No. 4 spot in the 2016 College Football Playoff.The entirety of the playoff picture is hard to grasp with the numerous avenues and possibilities that could open or close with the pending results of next weekend’s conference championship lineup across the country.ESPN’s FiveThirtyEight has created a great way to interact with and better understand each team’s probability to make the top four based on user-provided outcomes to this weekend’s slate.As for Wisconsin’s chances, the pathway to 2016 College Football Playoff is rather simple.First thing’s first: The Badgers have to beat Penn State in Indianapolis or else there is no shot to begin with.If Wisconsin can beat the surging Nittany Lions, then UW still needs either No. 5 University of Washington or No. 3 Clemson University to lose in their respective conference championships.Football: Leo Musso’s halftime speech, defensive stinginess in second half keep Paul Bunyan’s Axe in Madison for 13th straight yearLeo Musso studied the faces of his teammates on the University of Wisconsin football team and saw expressions of shock. Read…Washington takes on No. 9 University of Colorado in the Pac 12 for the Pac 12 title Friday night at 8 p.m., and Clemson battles No. 23 Virginia Tech for the ACC championship while the Badgers take on Penn State at 7 p.m.On the other side of the field from the Badgers, the exact same scenario Wisconsin must witness holds true for Penn State as well, with the one difference being a Penn State victory over UW of course.Yet, according to FiveThirtyEight’s 2016 College Football Playoff predictions probability, the Nittany Lions have a slightly lesser chance (45 percent) to make make the top four than the Badgers do (57 percent) with a win over the other.Granted, the new playoff format for post-season college football is infantile at best, and there will always be a greener pasture with six, eight or 16 teams, but the inclusion of four teams is still far better method than the infamously limited Bowl Championship Series system it replaced in 2014.last_img read more

first_imgWenger and Sanchez after the Cup finalSydney, Australia | AFP |Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger Tuesday insisted unsettled striker Alexis Sanchez is going nowhere, saying he expected him honour his contract and potentially sign an extension.The Chilean, 28, has a year left on his Gunners deal but is yet to sign a new contract and has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and Manchester City.Reports in Britain have said he could be offloaded for up to 80 million pounds (US$103 million, 90 million euros), but Wenger suggested this won’t happen.“The players have contracts and we expect them to respect their contracts. That’s what we want,” he said in Sydney about the striker.Asked if he remained determined to keep Sanchez and not let him go to a Premier League rival, Wenger replied: “Yes, that is a continuation of what I said at the end of the season. That’s what we will do.“He adds great value to the squad and I think as well he is a great lover of the club.”Sanchez, who at times last season cut a disgruntled figure as Arsenal struggled with form and uncertainty over Wenger’s future, is not on the team’s pre-season tour to Australia as he rests after last month’s Confederation’s Cup. But Wenger said reports that the Chilean ace had informed him that he wanted to leave the club were not true, replying with a curt “No”.He added: “I think the easiest way to manage a player is in the final year of his contract. It is in his interest to do as well as he can.“Nobody knows today if Sanchez will be on his final year of his contract next season, because he can extend his contract with us at the start of the season or during the season.“So it is not necessarily the last year of his contract at Arsenal Football Club.”Arsenal play two pre-season friendlies in Sydney this week, against Sydney FC on Thursday and Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 24, 2015)–Mike Luzzi, America’s Eclipse Award-winning apprentice jockey in 1989, has been named the winner of the 2015 Santa Anita George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award by a nationwide vote of his peers.A 45-year-old native of Wilmington, Delaware, Luzzi has stood the test of time and has enjoyed a highly successful career riding primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region, Maryland and New York. It is expected that Luzzi will travel west to Santa Anita to accept the award in either March or April.Sidelined due to a broken leg and fractured pelvis sustained in a paddock accident at Aqueduct on Nov. 2, Luzzi outpolled four other finalists; James Graham, Leslie Mawing, Corey Nakatani and the recently retired Rosie Napravnik.Presented annually by Santa Anita since 1950, the Woolf Award is one of the most highly coveted honors in all of racing as it recognizes those riders whose careers and personal character earn esteem for both the individual and the sport of Thoroughbred racing.Born Oct. 27, 1969, Luzzi was raised in-part by his grandfather, legendary trainer Buddy Raines, who also trained one of Luzzi’s biggest early stakes winners–Timely Warning, with whom Luzzi won the 1991 Maryland Million Classic at Pimlico and Grade I Brooklyn Handicap at Aqueduct. Luzzi was also the winner of New York’s prestigious Mike Venezia Memorial Jockey Award in 2001.With 26,540 career mounts, Luzzi has won 3,420 races and his mounts have generated purse earnings of $108,218,039.Luzzi and his wife Tania reside in Floral Park, New York, and they have a daughter, Larue, 14, and son, Lane, 16, who is preparing to become a jockey.The Woof Award was created to honor and memorialize the legendary jockey George “the Iceman” Woolf, who was regarded as one of the greatest big money riders of his time. Woolf died following a spill, which has often been attributed to the effects of diabetes, on Santa Anita’s Club House turn Jan. 3, 1946. The Woolf trophy is a replica of the full-size statue of the late jockey which adorns Santa Anita’s Paddock Gardens area.The inaugural Woolf Award winner, which was determined by a vote of the Racing Press, was Gordon Glisson. Last year’s Woolf Award was won by Corey Lanerie. –30–last_img read more

first_imgHealth workers and residents are contending that the slum communities of Monrovia and other parts of Liberia where they live and work are highly vulnerable to the spread of the Ebola virus and should be urgently decongested.In several interviews with the Daily Observer in Monrovia Tuesday, health workers and residents expressed fear and apprehension about the grave danger posed by over crowdedness and congestion in the slums particularly during the prevailing Ebola crisis, pointing out that physical contact is one of the surest ways for people to be infected by the deadly Ebola virus.Practical strategies should be designed to begin decongesting slum communities they urged, adding that urban planners, health authorities, environmental experts, residents and other stake holders should begin holding discussions on how and where to relocate populations from overcrowded slums.“Prioritizing on the national development agenda the relocation of slum dwellers to environmentally friendly areas in Monrovia and other parts of Liberia should no longer be delayed, they emphasized adding that the construction of sustained medical facilities within slum communities should also  be included. “Our people are living in dehumanizing conditions that should claim the immediate attention of all Liberians in and out of the country,” health worker Samson Doelue declared.Another health worker, Martha B. Roberts, pointed out that the vulnerable slum dwellers also face other serious threats such as sea erosion and the lack of public sanitation facilities.Slum dwellers have over the years pleaded for basic but critical benefits such as better equipped health facilities, water and electricity, but their cries have for the most part, fallen on deaf ears.“I believe that their relocation to environmentally friendly areas is one of the best alternatives that would ease our vulnerability to water and air-borne diseases,” Madam Roberts maintained.When contacted in the largest slum community of West Point in central Monrovia, residents told the Daily Observer that the proposal advanced by some to relocate slum dwellers is indeed realistic and sustainable.“We are willing to relocate but, the initiative must be designed to suit the current housing conditions in Monrovia and its environs,” West Pointer Blamo Sonpon stressed.New locations for residents should be environmentally friendly, crime free and contain basic necessities that would enhance our livelihoods including  quality water systems, schools, healthcare facilities among others, said Mr. Sonpon.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
