Commentary Why doesnt Ohio State basketball do midnight madness

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. read more

Ohio State mens ice hockey upsets No 14 Northern Michigan

The Ohio State men’s hockey team just keeps on rolling. OSU came into a Friday afternoon contest against No. 14-ranked Northern Michigan unbeaten in its last five games, but fell behind Wildcats, 1-0, in the first period. The Buckeyes responded with four unanswered goals over the final two periods, however, and upset Northern Michigan, 4-1. OSU Sophomore forward Alex Szczechura tied the game in the second period and a third-period tally by sophomore forward Chris Crane put OSU in front for good. Senior captain Cory Schneider scored two goals late in regulation to clinch the upset. “I thought we got better as the game went on,” OSU coach Mark Osiecki said after the game. “We’re all about competing and work and goals by committee… It’s fun to coach these kids.”  The Wildcats struck first, scoring on a shot from sophomore center Stephan Vigier shot at 16:07 in the first period to take a 1-0 lead. Junior left winger Kory Kaunisto assisted on the tally, the only for either team in the first period. The Buckeyes came out firing in the second period. OSU took 12 second-period shots, and one found the back of the net early. Szczechura out-muscled a defender behind Northern Michigan senior goalie Reid Ellingson’s net. Szczechura then wrapped around the goal before firing a shot home from close range to tie the score at 1-1. “(We were) working hard down low and I just kind of got (the puck) and took it to the net,” Szczechura said of his goal. “Luckily for me, it just went in. Nothing special about it.”  Two Wildcats penalties gave OSU a 5-on-3 advantage just minutes later, but Ellingson denied four Buckeyes’ shots and Northern Michigan held OSU off. OSU outshot Northern Michigan, 17-8, through two periods, but the 1-1 score held as the third period began. At 10:38 of the final period, Northern Michigan freshman defenseman Jake Baker received a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for an open-ice hit on OSU senior Danny Dries. After having his head illegally contacted by Baker, Dries eventually returned to his feet. Moments later, the Buckeyes made the Wildcats pay on the resulting power play when Crane poked a goal passed Ellingson to put OSU up. “They took a five-minute major and we capitalized,” Crane said. “Going hard to the net — that’s our mentality as Ohio State and it worked out for us.”  With just more than two minutes to play Schneider, a forward, jammed a goal passed Ellingson to clinch the upset. Schneider also added an empty-net goal in the final minute of play. Senior goalie Cal Heeter stopped 13-of-14 shots in the game to preserve the win, which improved OSU’s record to 7-3-1 overall and 4-2-1-1 in the CCHA. The Wildcats fall to 4-3-3 overall and 1-2-3-2 in the CCHA. The two teams will meet again at the Schottenstein Center Saturday with the opening face-off set for 7:05 p.m. read more

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.”Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R.

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.”last_img read more

Delhi Metro Scam UKBased Alstom Bribed DMRC €3M to Win Contract

first_imgThe United Kingdom charged the British subsidiary of French transport engineering company, Alstom Network UK Ltd, for a €3 million bribery to secure contracts from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.Alstom has been charged by UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) under section 1 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906, and under section 1 of the Criminal Law Act 1977.While placing charges against certain directors of Alstom, SFO said that during the period of 1 August 2000 to 9 August 2006, they “did corruptly give or agree to give payments to an official or officials or other agents” of the DMRC to get contracts.To secure the contract of Train Control, Signalling and Telecommunications System for Delhi Metro Phase 1, Alstom bribed DMRC in parts. The SFO said these payments were “rewards for showing favour to the Alstom Group in relation to the award or performance,” Hindustan Times reported.”The sum of ₹1,98,95,000 disguised as payments in respect of a Consultancy Agreement with Indo European Ventures Pvt Ltd dated 12 September 2001 and the sum of €3,131,600 disguised as a payment in respect of a Consultancy Agreement with Global King Technology Ltd dated 3 May 2002,” the SFO cited examples of payments made as “favour.”The Urban Development Ministry has, however, denied having any knowledge about the charges placed against Alstom in connection with the alleged scam.”We are not aware of the charges levelled by Britain’s Serious Fraud Office against Alstom for bribing Delhi Metro to win contracts. Nothing has been communicated to us so far. We will take a view once we get something in writing from either the home ministry or the CBI,” a senior urban development ministry official told HT.Four years ago, the SFO had arrested three UK board members of Alstom over alleged bribery, money laundering and false accounting, according to Reuters. The company is also facing similar charges in Poland and Tunisia for tram and infrastructure deals.last_img read more
