Taylor Decker spent part of his Wednesday morning doing some work that should please Ohio State fans greatly. The Buckeyes’ offensive tackle surfed Twitter, found a bunch of incorrect predictions made about his national champion team and retweeted them. The 6-foot-7, 315-pound offensive lineman found eight tweets that proved to be very, very wrong. There are plenty, plenty more out there to be found, too. Funny how things work, often those who said you couldn’t will cheer the loudest when you do #raisethewhiteropes— Taylor Decker (@TDeck68) February 25, 2015 @TDeck68 @TDeck68Decker recognized one of the few people who did not lose faith in Ohio State, too. @TDeck68 looks like i was the opposite of those people pic.twitter.com/4fac4tLB1f— Thomas Khristenko (@ChefKyrie) February 25, 2015Taylor Decker: really good offensive lineman, even better user of Twitter.
Twitter/@ESPNCBBAt this point, it feels like we have a huge upset and a court rush every night in college basketball. No. 3 Kansas was the victim tonight, falling to an Oklahoma State team that was just 9-8, and 1-4 in the Big 12 in Stillwater, 86-67. After the game, fans of the Pokes rushed the court in a big way.Down goes Kansas! What a week. pic.twitter.com/46vr4hqHo0— ESPN College BBall (@ESPNCBB) January 20, 2016They stormed the court anyway. Regardless, great win for the Pokes. They came to play. 86-67 victory. #OkState pic.twitter.com/KIyNCQsuK8— Sam Gannon (@SamGannon87) January 20, 2016Storm that court, Pokes! #okstate pic.twitter.com/hFFVoutUEc— Jessica Morrey (@JessicaMorrey) January 20, 2016Last night, Iowa State fans stormed the floor. Tonight, it was Oklahoma State. On the road in the Big 12, nobody’s safe.
Remember the video of Ohio State men’s basketball players Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler and Jared Sullinger singing Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A?” Do you wish you could see those three sing the song live? If the OSU men’s basketball team had a midnight madness, that performance could happen. Started by Charles “Lefty” Driesell at the University of Maryland, midnight madness is currently a major part of the college basketball world, and it took place last Friday night. Driesell came up with the idea in 1971 to have his Terrapins’ first practice of the season at the earliest possible time that the NCAA would allow: midnight. Schools across the country have since adopted that idea, with the midnight practice now transforming into more of a preseason party hosted by the basketball team than work on the court. Students, alumni and fans gather at a teams’ arena to see their program introduce that year’s team. Different schools do different things, but the event usually involves the team performing a song or dance, the head coach giving a speech, and an intrasquad scrimmage. This year, Connecticut had a dunk contest, Syracuse got Carmelo Anthony to show up and interact with the crowd, and Maryland had an alumni scrimmage featuring some of their current and former NBA players. Nonathlete celebrities show up for the madness as well. Rapper Wale performed at Georgetown’s event last season, and 50 Cent appeared at Villanova’s five years ago. Basically, all the big-time programs have some form of a season tip-off event highlighted by entertaining performances and all-star game-type defense scrimmages. Except for the Buckeyes. It’s not as if OSU doesn’t have a big enough basketball program to host such an event. Two 30-win seasons and a national title game appearance in the last five years, along with an anticipated top-five team this year puts the Buckeyes among the nation’s top teams. Why not celebrate something that OSU does well? With the current state of the football program, the men’s basketball team should be the pride of the athletic department. Hosting an event that takes attention away from the football team and focusing it onto a basketball program that has done nothing but win and represent the school well in recent years needs to happen. The possibilities for the event are endless. A scrimmage between players, both former and current, would certainly entertain. Who wouldn’t want to see Sullinger posting up Greg Oden or William Buford trying to shake Evan Turner? Ohio natives Kid Cudi, Bow Wow, or Chip tha Ripper could perform. If those three aren’t available, I’m sure the crowd wouldn’t mind being serenaded by the voices of Craft and Sullinger. Who knows, maybe known Buckeye fan Lebron James would show up. Either way, OSU is missing out on a big part of the college basketball world, and it’s time for change.
OSU redshirt sophomore quarterback Joe Burrow (10) catches a snap during the Spring Game at Ohio Stadium on April 15, 2017. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Social Media EditorAfter the 2016 spring game, then-redshirt freshman quarterback Joe Burrow said he wasn’t ready to assume the role of backup quarterback. Now-redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins wasn’t in the mix for the job yet, having not arrived at Ohio State.On Saturday in the 2017 spring game, the two threw a combined 59 passes, completing 40 of them. Haskins was 21 for 32 with the Gray team and 5 for 5 with Scarlet. Burrow was 14 of 22 for Scarlet. Now exiting spring camp heading toward summer workouts and fall camp, whoever wins the backup quarterback job feels confident enough to be the next man up behind redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett.Haskins had the most opportunities in the passing game, playing for nearly the entire game on the Gray squad after Barrett played just the first quarter. Haskins completed five passes for more than 20 yards, throwing for 283 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Burrow connected on three such passes, accumulating 262 passing yards and three touchdowns on the day.Burrow said that the game has slowed down for him quite a bit from a season ago.“I see just about everything that’s going on on defense, know the offense way better — the ins and outs, what’s going on up front,” he said.Burrow and Haskins each stood in the pocket and sprayed the ball all over the field, not being afraid to throw it deep and let the receiver make a play in the air. The effect of a Ryan Day-Kevin Wilson offense was on full display for the first time for the Buckeyes and the passing game reflected that change the most.Burrow came into the spring game as the clubhouse leader for the backup quarterback job, but after a strong performance from both the Athens, Ohio, native and Haskins, OSU coach Urban Meyer will have a decision to make come fall.“I know it is very close. But I’m not prepared to say who is (No.) 2, who is (No.) 3, et cetera, yet,” Meyer said.Meyer continued saying that all four quarterbacks — Barrett, Burrow, Haskins and freshman Tate Martell — have been exceptional during spring camp. He added Haskins and Burrow played well Saturday.In his first time playing in a game scenario, Haskins confirmed beliefs about his arm. He overthrew receivers at time, but dropped in a few long passes on target to redshirt junior wide receivers Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin for his three touchdowns.When asked whether or not he thought Burrow and Haskins are ready to be the quarterback on deck, Dixon emphatically said he’s confident Burrow and Haskins each can be the leader of the offense, if need be.Haskins said that he did what he sought out to do this spring and did enough to win the backup job. But until fall camp, he and Burrow will have to wait to prove they’re the right choice to be the next up after Barrett.“As far as the competition goes, we’re just going back and forth rotating twos, ones,” Haskins said. “Doing everything we need to do to get each other better.”

We know [each other] perfectly.“When we feel things are not going well, we are going to change and I am going to make a step back.“I am trying, with all my efforts and desire to avoid that, and instead of making a step back we are going to make a step forward to maintain the level of this club.“We have a contract because we have to have a contract, but the club knows me and when I have the feeling that our relationship with the players is not good I am going to make a step back and another guy is going to come to help the players maintain this high level.”
Ahead of the last-16 clash between Japan and Belgium, defender Gen Shoji said he is up for the challenge and is well aware what exactly he needs to be prepared for.Even though Lukaku might be Shoji’s direct opponent in the fixture, he is not Belgium’s only attacking option. Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens are just some other names who could easily find the back of the net of Japan’s goal.“I do feel I will be faced with Lukaku quite a lot. In preparation of the match, I think I have to overcome him mentally,” Shoji said, according to FourFourTwo.“Yes, we are facing Belgium, a formidable foe, but I’d like to be mentally prepared.”Capello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.Akira Nishino, manager of Japan, said he has already talked with Eiji Kawashima after some not normal mistakes the goalkeeper made in the group stage.“He’s a perfectionist,” Nishino said.“[After] the first and second matches, I actually had a chat with him, personally. His position, his play, we discussed for quite a long time. ”“He’s the only one who’s played as a goalkeeper in Europe. And he self-analysed his play very well.”
Los Blancos boss Santiago Solari believes the European competition is part of the club’s history and go hand by handReal Madrid and Viktoria Plzen will face off tomorrow night in the UEFA Champions League.And for interim manager Santiago Solari, Los Blancos and the European tournament go together.“It’s always very nice, this competition, which is linked to the history of our club, inseparable,” said Solari according to Goal.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“When we hear the Champions League anthem, we all get excited. It’s fantastic to be back in this competition. This is my third game in this role, so I’m very happy that I get a chance [in the Champions League]. I enjoyed it a lot as a player.”“When you look for a solution to a problem in football, it’s never just one thing, it’s step by step,” he added.“We’ve taken two steps, two games. We had to play well to win them, you don’t win games without doing things well, and they were tough games.”“We did a lot of good things in these two games and we have to do what we did well again, but also improve what we didn’t do well. Every team can always improve,” he commented.

Ultimately, the Philo-Pandora promo might not move the needle much. After all, the offer is just one month longer than Pandora Premium’s current offer of a 60-day free trial service.And, as a limited-time offer, it’s not likely to be as sticky as real bundling deals. For example, Spotify and Hulu broadly launched a bundle last month: The “Spotify Premium, Now With Hulu” $12.99 monthly bundle includes Hulu’s entry-level, ad-support VOD service and Spotify’s full premium music service.Philo’s skinny bundles start at $16 per month for 37 channels and $20 monthly for 46 channels. Most of those networks are from its cable backers — A+E Networks, AMC Networks, Discovery/Scripps Networks Interactive and Viacom. The big omissions: Philo doesn’t have any sports or broadcast programming, or premium nets like HBO and Showtime.Philo said the Pandora Premium promo offer is available to both new and existing subscribers. The offer is available through Oct. 26, 2018, or until all 200,000 codes have been issued. More info is at try.philo.com/pandora.The programming lineup for Philo’s $16-per-month service includes A&E, AMC, Animal Planet, AXS TV, BBC America, Cheddar, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, Food Network, GSN, HGTV, History, Investigation Discovery (ID), IFC, Lifetime, MTV, Nickelodeon, TLC, and Travel Channel. For $20 per month, subscribers get nine more channels: American Heroes Channel, BET Her, Cooking Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, Discovery Life, Logo, MTV Live and Nicktoons.The Philo service includes live TV and a library of VOD content, with the ability to stream on up to three different devices at the same time. It also provides a DVR with unlimited 30-day storage, plus the ability to pause any live channel, start programs from the beginning, and watch any shows that have aired in the past three days. Philo is teaming with music streamer Pandora in the hopes of luring more cord-cutters and cord-nevers to its skinny internet TV bundle — but it’s not clear how compelling the limited-time offer will really be.On Wednesday, Philo, a virtual pay-TV startup backed by several cable programmers, launched a promo offering three months of Pandora Premium (normally $9.99 per month) for free to both new and current subscribers.The promo is limited to the first 200,000 Philo subs who take advantage of the offer and is set to run through October.Competition among internet-based subscription TV providers has ratcheted up a few notches in the past year. Philo’s skinny bundle, which launched last fall, is vying in a crowded field that includes AT&T’s DirecTV Now, YouTube TV, Hulu With Live TV, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue and FuboTV. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Almost 85% of UK households will have signed up for a multiplay service – taking at least two media and telecom services from the same provider – by 2019, according to research by CCS Insight.This year, over 12 million UK households will take a bundle of three services from the same provider while a further 1.5 million will take four services from a single provider by the end of the year.CCS Insight expects the number of households purchasing bundles of four services to double in 2016, and to grow steadily in the near future, helped by consolidation of the telecom market, such as BT’s proposed acquisition of EE.Uptake of multiplay offerings is being driven by value, convenience and fewer bills as well as promotional activities, the rollout of new services, the emergence of new providers and a proliferation of no-contract options like Now TV, according to the research group.CCS Insight says that adoption of fibre broadband will also help OTT services, which will pose a serious threat to telecom operators’ ambitions in video.“Over 40% of UK households currently do not subscribe to pay TV services: this is a huge opportunity. BT has shown the way with the success of BT Sport. It’s now using its sport channels to drive up subscriptions to BT TV among its existing customers. It’s also targeting Sky TV customers who enjoy watching sports, while others like Virgin Media are positioning themselves as aggregators,” said Paolo Pescatore, director of multiplay and media at CCS Insight.“We will see similar battles in other types of programming beyond sport, fuelling further competition. We believe programmes, especially exclusive material, will be a key weapon in providers’ quest to secure customers. Those that offer a vast array of programmes will be better placed to succeed.”
