first_imgWillie Cauley Stein warms up for Kentucky.Prior to Sunday’s SEC Tournament championship game, Arkansas’ players did some trash talking to their opponent, Kentucky. They reportedly got in the Wildcats’ faces in a Bridgestone Arena tunnel and Razorbacks’ forward Bobby Portis said being able to play UK was like getting a wish granted. The fervor Arkansas’ players have for Kentucky is a feeling that is apparently replicated by the Wildcats’ players. Following his team’s victory against the Razorbacks, Kentucky junior center Willie Cauley-Stein said “we don’t like that team,” referencing Arkansas. Wow. Willie keeping it REAL. “We don’t like that team.” Said winning title was one thing, but they just wanted to beat “that team.”— Ashley Scoby (@AshleyScoby) March 15, 2015Willie Cauley-Stein after the game re: Arkansas, “Straight up, we don’t like that team.”— Brett Dawson (@BDawsonRivals) March 15, 2015Full WCS quote on not liking “that team” pic.twitter.com/EoGtkE2VTJ— Ashley Scoby (@AshleyScoby) March 15, 2015It’s not often that you see college basketball players openly discussing their dislike for another team, but we love it.

Matic: Man Utd don’t accept drawing or losing

first_imgNemanja Matic is pleased to see Manchester United back in the winning habit, with the midfielder admitting that the club “doesn’t accept drawing or losing a game”.The Red Devils had become painfully familiar with seeing points slip through their grasp towards the end of Jose Mourinho’s reign.The Portuguese collected just one victory from his last six Premier League outings at the helm, with United slipping off the top four pace as a result. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? OIe Gunnar Solskjaer has been charged with bringing about a reversal in fortune and has made a dream start to his tenure with back-to-back successes.A 5-1 mauling of Cardiff has been followed by a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Huddersfield, with Matic seeing United rediscover their spark as they endeavour to deliver the results expected of them.The Serbia international told BBC Sport after helping United to see off the Terriers at Old Trafford: “After Cardiff, we gained more confidence. It was important to win at our stadium, to bring a smile on the face of our supporters.“We made some mistakes. We need to see what we can do better. It’s a completely different atmosphere when you win games.“This club doesn’t accept drawing or losing a game. This is the way we have to try to win the next one.”Matic was the man to put United on their way to another welcome three-point haul on Boxing Day.His opening goal was his first for the Red Devils since March, with the 30-year-old one of several players to be enjoying a new lease of life under Solskjaer.He added: “It’s always important to score early if possible. After that, we have more space to play.“I’m happy with my goal.”United will be back in action on Sunday when they play host to Bournemouth, with there still an eight-point gap for them to bridge in order to return to the Champions League spots.

Nebraska 4-Star Transfer Issues Message For Huskers Fans

Nebraska defeated Wyoming 52-14. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)It’s been a tough season for Nebraska, highlighted by their winless record so far. However, more unfortunate news struck the Cornhuskers in the form of a huge transfer.Earlier this week, Tyjon Lindsey received his scholarship release, as the former four-star recruit is ready to transfer. Although he’s ready to start a new chapter at Oregon State, the potential-packed wideout didn’t forget to say goodbye to his supporters at Nebraska.This heartfelt message proves Lindsey will miss his time with the Cornhuskers, but he’ll embrace his new opportunity to shine on Saturdays.Thank you @HuskerFBNation and the TRUE GBR FANS who’ve shown me nothing but unconditional love and a warm welcoming when I first arrived on campus. ?The Marathon must continue… pic.twitter.com/T6SiqIBtsq— T-WAYNE (@tyjonlindsey) October 8, 2018Last season, Lindsey finished with 12 receptions for 76 yards as a freshman. In his time on the gridiron this year, he had three catches for 22 yards.The Cornhuskers will continue relying on JD Spielman and Morgan Stanley Jr. on the outside. Nonetheless, losing a gifted athlete like Lindsey isn’t ideal for Scott Frost in his first season at Nebraska.last_img read more

If that wasn’t bad enough, the team had to play host to LSU this weekend.The Tigers enter the game as the No. 7 team in the nation and have one of the fiercest defenses in college football. That defense has been dominant tonight against the Razorbacks, who have zero points on the night.And yet again, if that wasn’t bad enough, the Razorbacks are now tackling each other on offense.

Report: Tampa Bay Interested In Hiring Surprise College Head Coach

The Ravens defeated the Bucs 27 – 0. (Photo by Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images)The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in need of a new head coach and the franchise has been linked to a couple of college head coaches early in the search.You can reportedly add another one to the list.Days after reports surfaced linking Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly to the job, another major college football coach has been mentioned. This one is kind of surprising.CBS Sports is reporting that Georgia head coach Kirby Smart could be a candidate for the job.Jason La Canfora had the details.With Saban completing another historic season at Alabama, multiple teams conducting head-coaching searches want to speak to him this week, knowing full well it may be close to impossible to land him. The allure of Saban and his accomplished assistants is significant at a time when many candidates for jobs lack the proven ability to assemble a staff and manage a game and personalities the way he has. In particular, sources said that Tampa Bay’s ownership – still hopeful of making a splash – would be interested in speaking to Georgia coach Kirby Smart, a former Saban assistant.Smart, 43, has been Georgia’s head coach since 2016. He’s 32-10 as the Bulldogs’ head coach, taking the program to the national title game last season.Georgia finished its 2018 season with a disappointing Sugar Bowl loss to Texas.It would be something if he left the college ranks for Tampa Bay.last_img read more

His season was cut short due to a season-ending injury in July, suffering a broken bone.It’s been a busy offseason for Tebow, who got engaged to his girlfriend earlier this month.“Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world. You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you,” he wrote.It’s looking like 2019 could be a huge year for the former Heisman Trophy winner.last_img read more

Alabama LB Terrell Lewis Says He’s ‘100-Percent’ After 2 Seasons Missed To Injury

first_imgTerrell Lewis celebrates a big play during Alabama vs. Georgia in the national championship.ATLANTA, GA – JANUARY 08: Terrell Lewis #24 of the Alabama Crimson Tide reacts to an interception during the third quarter against the Georgia Bulldogs in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on January 8, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)Terrell Lewis has the talent to be the next game-breaking edge rusher out of Alabama. His health hasn’t cooperated to this point in his college career.In the 2017 season opener against Florida State, Lewis suffered what proved to be a season-ending elbow injury. He needed surgery to repair a ligament, which cost him the remainder of that season.After recovering from that setback, Lewis tore an ACL in the summer of 2018, costing him all of last season. He missed this spring as he finished his recovery.Now, just over a week away from the season opener against Duke, Lewis is finally back to where he wants to be, and is working to break into the Alabama rotation at linebacker.From AL.com:“I’m 100 percent, I would say,” Lewis said. “There’s nothing that’s holding me back from doing anything. I feel real good now. … As far as the spring, strength-wise, I wasn’t where I wanted to be as far as being able to hold the point of attack and go against 300-pound linemen. But now, staying focused with rehab and stuff like that got me right. And getting stronger and then just getting more comfortable with being back on the field, that helped me a lot.”His ability is starting to flash in a major way at Crimson Tide practice as well. The AL.com piece describes a drill in which Lewis made offensive tackle Tommy Brown, a current backup for the Tide and a class of 2018 four-star player, look pretty bad. Saban was just yards away observing, and had some nice things to say about how Lewis has fought back from injury.“He’s worked hard all summer,” Tide coach Nick Saban said in early August. “We keep these Catapult (GPS tracking) numbers on guys in terms of what their explosive movements are and how much they can duplicate it, and he’s back to a level higher than he was before he got hurt two years ago. So we’re really pleased with the work that he’s done and how he’s recovered.”Terrell Lewis should have plenty of opportunity to show off the five-star talent he brought to Tuscaloosa this fall. Hopefully, his body finally gives him that chance.[AL.com]last_img read more

The Wolverines trailed 28-0 at halftime and ended up losing, 35-14, in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score made it out to be.FOX analyst Urban Meyer reacted to Michigan’s loss on the postgame show.“There’s a problem here. You have to lift up the hood and see what’s wrong,” Meyer said of the Wolverines’ program.“You lift up that hood and you’re not going to like what you see.”This is Year 5 for Harbaugh and it was supposed to be the breakthrough year. Michigan was a popular Big Ten champion and College Football Playoff team pick heading into the 2019 season.Now, the question might be if Michigan is going to lose three or four games…or more.The remaining schedule is pretty brutal, with games remaining against Iowa, Notre Dame, Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan State, among others.Michigan should get into the win column next weekend, at least, as the Wolverines host Rutgers in Ann Arbor.last_img read more

Moto Z4 Play specifications and renders leak, could challenge OnePlus 6T

first_img Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiFebruary 6, 2019UPDATED: February 7, 2019 08:19 IST HIGHLIGHTSRumours suggest Moto will use a 48-megapixel camera for the rear.The display is rumoured to sport an in-display fingerprint sensor.Moto Z4 Play is expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset.For the last few years, Motorola has been struggling in the premium smartphone segment under Rs 30,000. Last year’s Moto X4 couldn’t exactly make a name for itself in the premium smartphone space, despite sporting a premium glass body and fairly powerful specifications. Since this premium segment is plainly dominated by the likes of Vivo and Oppo throwing in modern features, Motorola is going ahead with an all-new smartphone in this space – the Moto Z4 Play.There has been a sea of leaks and rumours in the recent times, and now 91Mobiles comes up with new information about the device. The Z4 Play has leaked in photos and some key specifications regarding the device have been out in the air now. The Moto Z4 is a stylish smartphone to behold from the leaked renders of the device.From the photos, the Z4 Play vastly resembles the previous Moto Z series smartphones, especially from the rear. There’s a premium glass rear panel with magnetic Pogo pins to strap-on the Moto Mods. There seems to be a single rear camera module at the back for now, but reports suggest that Moto will use a 48-megapixel camera for the rear. Unlike the current crop of smartphones with 48-megapixel cameras from Samsung or Sony, the Moto Z4 Play is expected to use the Q Technology S5KGM1SP sensor.On the front, the phone sheds bezels massively when compared to the Z2 Play. There’s a waterdrop notched display with extremely thin bezels all around. The notch is expected to house a 16-megapixel front camera. The display is rumoured to sport an in-display fingerprint sensor, which suggests that Motorola could opt for a Super AMOLED panel.advertisementUnderneath, the Moto Z4 Play is expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset paired with 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage. The device will be powered by a 3600mAh battery, which should make it last for at least a day. As usual with all Motorola phones, the Z4 Play will run on a stock Android 9 Pie interface out-of-the-box.While there’s no hinting of the prices, the Moto Z series has always been aimed at premium smartphone seekers. With all the expected specifications, Motorola could price it against the likes of OnePlus 6T and Honor View 20.ALSO READ | Moto G7, G7 Play, G7 Power and G7 Plus design leaked, some get waterdrop notchALSO READ | Moto G6 review: Best looking phone under Rs 15,000ALSO READ | Moto G7 Plus full specs spotted on TENAA ahead of February 7 launchGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

I don’t want to put any pressure on myself by thinking about the No 4 spot in the Indian team. I understand that batting order depends on lot of things. For India, I am ready to bat at any position,” Rahane said during a media conference organised by Rajasthan Royals.The Rajasthan Royals skipper is happy that Steve Smith is back in the Royals’ fold and he can pick his brains on tactical matters.”It’s good to have him (Smith) back as a Rajasthan Royals player. He is a quality player and it’s always good to have him in your team. Also to pick his mind will be very important. We all know his ability to win matches,” Rahane said of former Australian captain.Asked about Jos Buttler’s batting position, Rahane made it clear that he is not too keen on tinkering with a set playing XI.He also urged media to go slow on new batting sensation Ashton Turner, who singlehandedly won a recent ODI against India.”Turner is a good addition to the team but media makes a hero of anyone in a single day but dumps him the next day. He has shown his ability on Indian wickets which shows he can adapt to conditions.advertisementAlso Read | IPL is good preparation for the upcoming World Cup: Robin UthappaAlso Read | Shubman Gill is a prodigy and the next big thing in Indian cricket: Robin UthappaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

With the launch of its third restaurant in Juhu, Bayroute brings delicacies from the bustling streets of Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Morocco and Greece with kibbeh, koshari, manakeesh and tagine.While the decor is reminiscent of Arabian Nights, what makes this a must-visit in Mumbai is that the restaurant menu draws from family traditions of the region and a few forgotten recipes, and uses cooking techniques such as .atstone atop burning embers, a spinning rotisserie and open-fire roasted skewers that are believed to have originated in Middle East cooking.

With over a century of monsoons faced by the building, there was dampness in the walls and wooden members were structurally weakened,” says Abha Narain Lambah, the principal conservation architect for this project. The restoration was an effort they started 10 years ago, and while they got a seed fund from the Jewsih Heritage Grant Program from the World Monuments Fund, work couldn’t proceed as donations were difficult to get.advertisement”It is a small religious community so it was difficult to raise funds,” says Lambah.

Me sitting out IPL 2019 matches is a big possibility: Virat Kohli

first_img Press Trust of India ChennaiMarch 22, 2019UPDATED: March 23, 2019 10:58 IST Virat Kohli said players have to smart about managing their workload during IPL 2019. (@RCBTweets Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli said it is up to the players to take care of their bodiesKohli said he was very motivated for Saturday’s IPL match against CSKKohli said many people are not aware of the talent of Indian guys in RCBIndia skipper Virat Kohli Friday said he won’t mind sitting out one or two IPL matches to stay fit and fresh for the ICC World Cup, putting the onus on his United Kingdom-bound players to manage their workload.”Yes.. that’s a big possibility. Why not?,” Kohli said when asked if he could sit out a match or two to avoid burnout.”It’s a personal responsibility. It is up to the players to give information on any niggle to the concerned people as soon as possible and work as per plan,” he said.Kohli was speaking on the eve of the Indian Premier League opener between his team Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings.”We have told the players to be smart about how they feel on a particular day and then reporting to the physios. If he’s told not to play, then he has to respect that.”With the IPL, which begins Saturday, culminating days before the World Cup, there has been a lot of talk about managing the workload of the players during the next two months.Asked if the workload issue will affect the league, the RCB captain said it will depend on how the players strike a balance.”At the end of the day, I am very motivated to start tomorrow personally. I don’t know how competitive or how relaxed Indian players are going to be during the IPL. Every professional knows how to maintain a balance. Eventually you are playing for a franchise and they have trusted you to do a job for them.advertisement”Till the time you play, you have to give 120 per cent. when you don’t play, you don’t. I don’t believe in playing 75-80 per cent. That’s the mindset I carry. I am sure the guys are going to be smart about it. They are going to choose wisely through the tournament. It is not forced on them. They said we are going to be careful,” he added.Kohli said the talent of his team’s domestic players would be on display when RCB takes on CSK.”Not many people are aware of the strengths of some of the Indian guys we possess in our team. And that’s one area we want to focus on. In the past, the focus was always been on getting strong overseas players,” he said.”This time around, guys from the domestic circuit are really confident. Tomorrow you will see the kind of bowling options and depth we carry.RCB haven’t beaten CSK since 2014 but Kohli made it clear that he doesn’t believe in rivalries and head-to-head records.”I don’t believe in head to head and rivalries. In T20 it is anyone’s game really. Some teams we have done really well against. Some teams like CSK we haven’t won in the last six games,” he said.”It is no like you focus only on playing those teams and not focus on teams you have lost against. Opposition this year doesn’t matter for us. It is the vision we have and kind of cricket we want to play as a side and we will focus on that,” he added.Also Read | I don’t care about being judged for not winning the IPL, says Virat KohliAlso Read | One man doesn’t win the IPL: Fleming disagrees with Gambhir’s comment on Kohli’s captaincyAlso Read | Onus on Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers as RCB seek to end 5-year drought vs CSKFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
