The Bogibeel: An architectural marvel across the Brahmaputra

first_imgBogibeel, Asia’s second longest rail-cum-road bridge that was opened to traffic by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 25, 2018, has a serviceable period of around 120 years. The 4.9 km-long Bogibeel on the Bramhaputra is India’s only fully welded bridge for which european codes and welding standards were adhered to for the first time in the country, said the Bogibeel project’s Chief Engineer Mohinder Singh. The bridge, constructed at an estimated cost of ₹5,900 crore, has a “serviceable period of around 120 years”, Mr. Singh said. The bridge reduces travel time from Assam to Arunachal Pradesh to four hours and will cut out the detour of over 170 km via Tinsukia. It will also reduce Delhi to Dibrugarh train-travel time by about three hours to 34 hours as against 37 hours presently.The massive structure was born “small” on paper – a scribbled note in Parliament after a dramatic display of anger – 22 years ago.last_img read more

SPORT-OLY-BAD 2 LAST

first_imgSindhu and Srikanth continued to carry Indias flag in Sindhu and Srikanth continued to carry Indias flag in their debut Olympics and their performance speaks volumes about the devotion of chief coach Gopichand, who now has the distinction of producing two medal-winning shuttler for India. Already a dronacharya awardee, Gopichand has been a magician, who almost single-handedly created world-beaters and winners in a sport that seems to have lost its glory after the likes of Padukone, Late Syed Modi, Nandu Natekar and Dinesh Khanna. After inspiring most of the current lot of shuttlers with his gold-medal winning feat at the 2001 All England Championship, Gopichand opened his academy at Gachibowli in Hyderabad and devoted his life to Indian badminton after retiring in 2004. Ever since, under his guidance, India has made giant strides in international badminton with his wards, including Saina, Sindhu, Kashyap, Srikanth, winning medals and hearts across the globe. If it was Saina who achieved a lot of firsts for India by winning the 2010 Commonwealth Games gold, a series of Super Series titles and London Games bronze, Kashyap too became the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games champion, while Srikanth bagged titles at the China Open and India Open to reach the World No. 3 in 2015. India also won the Uber Cup bronze for the first time in 2014 under his guidance, while Sindhu achieved two bronze medals at World Championship. With a bronze and a silver in the last two Olympics, Indian badminton is going great guns and it can be hoped that with Gopichand at the helms it will achieve greater heights in the times to come, especially at the 2020 Tokyo Games.

James and Cavaliers win thrilling NBA Finals Game 7, 93-89

first_imgOAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — LeBron James cradled the shiny gold trophy and struggled to sum up what might be his sweetest championship yet, the one he is so proudly bringing home to his native northeast Ohio just as he promised to do when he returned to the Cavaliers two summers ago.Later, flanked by his three children on Father’s Day, a cigar between his lips and winning net as a necklace with the lingering stench of champagne, James began to understand the magnitude of his accomplishment for Cleveland after a half-century wait.“I’m coming home with what I said I was going to do,” he said, adding, “I can’t wait to get off that plane, hold that trophy up and see all our fans at the terminal.”James and his relentless, never-count-them-out Cavs pulled off an improbable NBA Finals comeback, and Cleveland is title town again at long last.James delivered on a vow to his home state and brought the Cavs back from the brink as they became the first team to rally from a 3-1 finals deficit, beating the defending champion Golden State Warriors 93-89 on Sunday night to end a 52-year major sports championship drought in Cleveland.“I’ve never seen a man in my life tell an entire state: ‘Get on my back, I got you. Get on my back and I’m going to carry you. I don’t care if we fail, I’m going to wake up the next morning and I’m going to start working out and prepare for the next year,’” Richard Jefferson said. “… He was like, ‘I’m going to come back home because I promised them that I would do something.’ And he carried us the whole way.”In a testy series of blowouts — and a few blowups — the winner-take-all Game 7 provided the thrilling finale with James as the finals MVP disarming two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry and his record-setting Warriors.The native of Akron rattled off moments from the lengthy list of Cleveland sports heartbreak and said what it meant for him to personally bring the Cavaliers their first championship.Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, bottom center, celebrates with teammates, family and staff after Game 7 of basketball’s NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, June 19, 2016. The Cavaliers won 93-89. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)Playing his sixth straight finals, James almost single-handedly carried the Cavs back into this series and finished with 27 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds as the Cavs gave their city its first major sports winner since the Browns won the NFL title in 1964. He also had three blocked shots, including a key one of Andre Iguodala on a fast break in the final minutes.An emotional James fell to the floor when this one ended with a second win in a week on Golden State’s imposing home floor, surrounded by his teammates. Only moments earlier, he went down in pain with 10.6 seconds left after being fouled by Draymond Green while going for a dunk, then came back out to make the second of two free throws.After four successful seasons in Miami and two titles with the Heat, James came back to the Cavs in hopes of winning the title this franchise and championship-starved city so coveted. It took a second try against Golden State after Cleveland lost to the Warriors in six games last year.“I was calm. I was focused. I was locked in,” James said.Cleveland did it after a coaching change, with Tyronn Lue taking over in January for the fired David Blatt.“We made history tonight,” Lue said. “Cleveland, Ohio, we’re coming back, baby!”Kyrie Irving scored 26 points to cap his brilliant finals, including a 3-pointer over Curry with 53 seconds left.Curry sat briefly on the bench to take in the scene after the Warriors made their last basket with 4:39 left.“It hurts, man,” Curry said. “Just proud of every single guy that stepped foot on the floor for our team this year. … Hopefully we’ll have many more opportunities to fight for championships and be on this stage because this is what it’s all about.”Green had 32 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists, but the Warriors’ record-setting season ended without the only prize this close-knit “Strength In Numbers” crew cared about from way back in the beginning — through the record 24-0 start as Coach of the Year Steve Kerr was out, Curry’s second consecutive MVP campaign, and the 73 regular-season wins to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ mark.Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, center, celebrates with teammates after Game 7 of basketball’s NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, June 19, 2016.

Fog delay halts Rory McIlroy’s charge for third Dubai Desert Classic win

first_imgReuse this content Share on Facebook Read more “I took a couple months off and didn’t really hit a ball,” Donaldson said. “We play golf, so much golf, all year. I’ve got two young kids; it was time to have some family time with them for a couple of months and it was great. Come out for the season nice and fresh and you’re reacting more to what you’ve turned up with, as opposed to slogging yourself to death over the winter.”Donaldson leads Haotong Li – who has posted successive rounds of 66 – by one. Branden Grace is a stroke further back. Leaderboard surprise has been provided by Miguel Ángel Jiménez, who at 54 years old is now more accustomed to competing for senior trophies than at mainstream events such as this. The Spaniard sits at 10 under after a second round of 68. He even double-bogeyed the par‑three 7th.“I won here in 2010, this is a golf course where I feel like I can defend myself with my game and here we are,” Jiménez said. “I still like to play with the young boys.”And Jiménez’s post-round plans? “I’m going to finish my cigar, have a small nap and I’m going to have a beautiful bottle of wine tonight.” It felt like a fully deserved scenario. Rory McIlroy For a Friday spell, it looked as if only the weather might halt Rory McIlroy’s charge towards another Dubai Desert Classic win. Instead, the 8th hole was to provide an end to the Northern Irishman’s bogey-free run in this event.McIlroy must return early on Saturday to complete the final seven holes of his second round, owing to a three‑hour fog delay here on Friday. He will resume at 10 under par, only three from the lead, and still very much the man to watch.“I don’t mind,” McIlroy said of his situation. “It will probably be a good test for me to play 25 holes tomorrow and see how the body responds to it. Maybe I can get a bit of early momentum going and keep it going into the third round.”Jamie Donaldson was content not only to remain at the head of affairs but complete his second round, thereby allowing a Saturday morning lie-in. Donaldson, who had opened with a stunning 62, moved to 13 under courtesy of a 69. The Welshman is, for now, proving less is more after a Christmas break far removed from the golf scene.

Donaldson, who had opened with a stunning 62, moved to 13 under courtesy of a 69. The Welshman is, for now, proving less is more after a Christmas break far removed from the golf scene.

Video: Former Baylor President Botches Interview, PR Woman Comes To His Aid

first_imgJust when you thought former Baylor president Ken Starr couldn’t possibly look any worse, he goes and botches a television interview in the worst kind of way. During an interview with KWTX News 10 Thursday, an answer he gave regarding a victim’s email led to a communications specialist he brought with him to stop the interview, pull him aside and suggest that he use a different response. Starr then sits down and looks to the specialist once again for help before providing the new, scripted response. The entire thing was caught on camera, and KWTX posted the video to its Facebook page.Baylor continues to make things worse for itself, and Starr isn’t helping. He may no longer be president, but the university might have to take it a step further and separate itself completely.last_img read more

Now, it’s Imran Tahir. He brings in variation and, no matter how the wicket or the conditions are, he generates turn. He knows how to bowl in every condition,” said Chahar, who has picked up 10 wickets in the IPL so far, on the eve of MI’s final league match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.Chahar, whose first cousin Deepak plays for reigning champions Chennai Super Kings, said he seeks advice from Tahir whenever he had a problem in his bowling.”I have his contact number. Whenever I have a problem, I call him up and he guides me. He always helps me. When I went to England with the India U-19 team (in 2017), I did not know how to deliver in those conditions. It is difficult to grip the ball there, and he told me to put some sand and tackle the situation,” recalled Chahar, seen as a future India prospect.Chahar also recalled how former India pacer Zaheer Khan, MI’s director of cricket operations, guided him when he faces difficulties.”After the first three matches, there was some problem with my delivery.

When I debuted for Mumbai Indians for the first time, it was a great feeling — something that you get while donning the India jersey as well,” he said.Off-spinner Jayant Yadav, who was also present at the media conference, said that he was not presently eyeing a spot in the Indian Test team after having played in the longest form of the game against England in 2016 here where he also scored a hundred.He went out of the team after picking up an injury and has not regained his spot.”Injuries happen and you don’t have any control over it as a player. I think it’s more about the process – how you have got there in the first place and taking every tournament and every season as it comes,” he said.Left-arm spinner Anukul Roy, who was also present, pointed out his progress in the MI ranks from a reserve player last year to make his debut this season.”This year I made my debut after being in the team last year (without playing a game).

Schlafly Beer Brings the Single Hop Beer Experience

first_imgSt. Louis brewery Schlafly (pronounced shh-laugh-lee) has released a new variety beer package which includes four that emphasize experimental hop beer varieties.Related: Five Fresh Hop Beers You Should Already Be DrinkingMost beers are brewed with a selection of several hops that combine for a diverse overall impact of flavor, bitterness and aroma. The concept behind a single hop series is to let the individual hop’s unique characteristics shine through. The beers in Schlafly’s new Hop Trial series are golden ales that share the same base single malt bill but only include one hop variety. There are 4 different beers in the series, each named for its respective hop. They are Hallertau Blanc, Bramling Cross, Enigma and Eureka.Hallertau Blanc is known for its aromatic qualities, creating a floral ambiance with a clean, light profile. Bramling Cross is a versatile hop prized for its spiciness. Enigma fans use a variety of fruit-based comparisons to describe its flavor, some as diverse as raspberry and melon. Eureka is piney and resinous with tropical fruit and citrus notes.Schlafly knows a thing or two about hops. Every month its brewpub locations have their own “Hop Trials” where patrons can offer feedback directly on a featured experimental hop variety. Those opinions are then shared directly with the hop farmers. Schlafly has used 102 different hops across its diverse line of beers in the past year. The Hop Trial SMaSH Pack is available throughout Schlafly’s distribution area and includes each of the 4 hop-focused beers for easy comparison. The suggested retail price for the box is $13.99. Purchases of the Hop Trial SMaSH Pack help to promote Schlafly’s Hop in the City event, which will be held Saturday, September 17, at the tap room in St. Louis. This annual event features more than 40 Schlafly brews, food, and entertainment.

Indigenous advocate wants Trudeau to write Rolling Stone to express regret

first_imgVANCOUVER – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he “regrets” comments he made about Sen. Patrick Brazeau in Rolling Stone, but an Indigenous advocate wants him to express his remorse in a letter to the popular U.S. magazine.Trudeau told Rolling Stone in a story titled “Justin Trudeau: The North Star,” that his choice of Brazeau as an opponent in a March 2012 charity boxing match “wasn’t random.” Brazeau is from the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation in Quebec.“I wanted someone who would be a good foil, and we stumbled upon the scrappy tough-guy senator from an Indigenous community. He fit the bill and it was a very nice counterpoint,” Trudeau told the magazine.“I saw it as the right kind of narrative, the right story to tell,” he said about the cancer-fundraiser fight he won in Ottawa when he was a member of Parliament.On Tuesday, Trudeau said in a CBC radio interview in Vancouver that he regretted his choice of language in describing the Independent senator.“The way I have personally engaged with Indigenous leadership and Indigenous communities over the past years and certainly as we’re doing it as a government, recognizes that there are a lot of patterns to change,” said Trudeau, who has made reconciliation with First Nations a top priority.“I try and make sure that we’re staying focused on recognizing that true reconciliation involves changing approaches and changing mindset. The way I framed it and characterized that doesn’t contribute to the positive spirit of reconciliation that I like to think and I know my government stands for.”Brazeau declined comment.Cindy Blackstock, executive director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada, said she’s glad Trudeau apologized for comments, saying the image of “the savage and the civilized” has dominated Canadian government for too long.However, it’s important for the prime minister to set the record straight in a letter to Rolling Stone “so the same people who read that article actually get to learn from the humility of him saying what he did was wrong and why it was wrong,” she said.“The idea that you would go searching for an Indigenous person to engage in an exercise with the aim, really, of making yourself look good, as that seems to imply, is disturbing.”In February, Trudeau was criticized by NDP member of Parliament Romeo Saganash, a former Cree leader, about remarks the prime minister made in response to a question on funding to First Nations communities.Trudeau told a town hall in Saskatoon that he’d spoken with a number of First Nations chiefs who said young people need youth centres with TVs and sofas so they can hang out.“When a chief says that to me I pretty much know they haven’t actually talked to their young people,” Trudeau said at the town hall.“Most of the young people I’ve talked are asking for a place to store their canoes and paddles so they can connect back out on the land and a place with Internet access so they can do their homework in a meaningful way because their homes are often too crowded and they need a place to work and study.”Saganash called Trudeau’s comments ignorant and insulting. He wrote a satirical letter saying a national canoe and paddle program must have been a “secret” recommendation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.— Follow @CamilleBains1 on Twitter.last_img read more

Canada takes softwood lumber dispute with US to NAFTA appeal panel

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada is turning to the North American Free Trade Agreement in its bid to stop U.S. duties on Canadian softwood lumber.A letter from a Canadian lawyer was hand-delivered Tuesday to the American NAFTA secretariat in Washington, requesting a panel review “in regard to the final determination of the U.S. Department of Commerce in the countervailing duty investigation of softwood lumber from Canada.”In a written statement, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Canada will “forcefully defend Canada’s softwood lumber industry.”“The U.S. Department of Commerce’s decision on punitive countervailing and anti-dumping duties against Canada’s softwood lumber producers is unfair, unwarranted, and deeply troubling,” she said.The challenge comes under section 19 of NAFTA, one of the sections in the crosshairs of U.S. President Donald Trump as the trilateral trade pact is renegotiated.Canadian softwood lumber producers have already laid down about $500 million in countervailing and antidumping duties since the U.S. Department of Commerce ruled last spring Canada was unfairly subsidizing its softwood industry and selling wood into the U.S. at unfairly low rates.The main issues stem from the fact that most Canadian softwood is on Crown land and producers pay stumpage fees, set by provincial governments, for the right to harvest the wood. The U.S. Lumber Coalition alleges these fees are deliberately set too low and represent an unfair subsidy to Canadian producers.Canada vigorously denies these claims and has won several NAFTA challenges over similar softwood issues in the past.Earlier this month, the U.S. government made final decisions about the amount of duty that would be charged on Canadian softwood, with the final total averaging about 21 per cent, down from almost 27 per cent in the initial decisions.Canada and the U.S. have battled over softwood for decades and the disputes have been before both NAFTA and the World Trade Organization multiple times. Canada has won almost all of those challenges, and even in cases where Canada was found to be subsidizing its industry, NAFTA panels or the WTO have said the subsidy was so minimal it had no effect on U.S. producers.Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr has repeatedly said Canada has every reason to believe it would prevail in such a challenge again.However, until Tuesday it wasn’t clear whether Canada would take that route again in the midst of difficult NAFTA renegotiations, particularly given the American objective to eliminate Chapter 19 altogether.Chapter 19 establishes a panel of five arbiters, agreed upon by both countries, who will decide if the duties meet U.S. law. Without that mechanism, Canada would have to use the U.S. court system to make such a challenge.Canada likes Chapter 19 because it doesn’t trust the U.S. courts to be fair and timely in reviewing international trade challenges. The Trump administration believes the U.S. court system should determine if American laws are being properly applied; if the panel decides they aren’t, the U.S. would have to refund the money collected.A Canadian government official said Tuesday that Canada could decide to take its case to the WTO as well, in addition to the NAFTA challenge.Canada and the United States are attempting to negotiate a new softwood deal that would dictate how much wood Canada can sell to the U.S. The last deal expired two years ago.Thus far Canadian producers have been shielded from too much harm from the duties because of high market prices and the low Canadian dollar.— follow @mrabson on Twitter.last_img read more

Canada has won almost all of those challenges, and even in cases where Canada was found to be subsidizing its industry, NAFTA panels or the WTO have said the subsidy was so minimal it had no effect on U.S. producers.Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr has repeatedly said Canada has every reason to believe it would prevail in such a challenge again.However, until Tuesday it wasn’t clear whether Canada would take that route again in the midst of difficult NAFTA renegotiations, particularly given the American objective to eliminate Chapter 19 altogether.Chapter 19 establishes a panel of five arbiters, agreed upon by both countries, who will decide if the duties meet U.S. law. Without that mechanism, Canada would have to use the U.S. court system to make such a challenge.Canada likes Chapter 19 because it doesn’t trust the U.S. courts to be fair and timely in reviewing international trade challenges. The Trump administration believes the U.S. court system should determine if American laws are being properly applied; if the panel decides they aren’t, the U.S. would have to refund the money collected.A Canadian government official said Tuesday that Canada could decide to take its case to the WTO as well, in addition to the NAFTA challenge.Canada and the United States are attempting to negotiate a new softwood deal that would dictate how much wood Canada can sell to the U.S. The last deal expired two years ago.Thus far Canadian producers have been shielded from too much harm from the duties because of high market prices and the low Canadian dollar.— follow @mrabson on Twitter.last_img read more

Udaya claims Government ignoring Russia China

He noted that the US and UN had earlier accused Sri Lanka of human rights abuses as the then Government refused to submit to their demands. “The Government must realize how weak they are when their enemies begin to whitewash them,” he said.The MP also said that he does not feel the Government will protect former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as claimed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. He also noted that while the Prime Minister has said that the new Government was able to save Rajapaksa from the electric chair, the same Prime Minister had said earlier that Rajapaksa cannot be taken to the electric chair by a foreign country as Sri Lanka has not signed the Rome statute. (Colombo Gazette) The parliamentarian said that the new Government has shown it is weak and that is why it has agreed to the demands of the US and the UN. Opposition parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila claims the Government is ignoring warning signals from China and Russia over the repercussions of agreeing with the United States on the text of the resolution at the UN Human Rights Council.Speaking to reporters yesterday, Gammanpila said that the US and UN have begun to whitewash Sri Lanka these days. read more

Seven years of war in Syria has left colossal human tragedy in

“This seven-year war has left a colossal human tragedy in its wake. For the sake of the living, it is high time to end this devastating conflict,” the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi underscored.The conflict – which broke in the wake of massive anti- and pro-Government street protests across the country in 2011 – reaches “a depressing anniversary” this month.The High Commissioner painted a grim picture of the relentless suffering of Syrian civilians and denounced the ongoing brutality as a shameful failure of political will and a new low in Syria’s long-running conflict.“There are no clear winners in this senseless pursuit of a military solution. But the losers are plain to see – they are the people of Syria,” he added.With 69 per cent of civilians inside the country languishing in extreme poverty, conditions are worse than ever. Ninety per cent of families now spend more than half their annual income on food as prices are, on average, eight times higher than pre-crisis levels.Moreover, some 5.6 million people lack security or basic rights and require humanitarian assistance.While UNHCR and other humanitarian actors are making every effort to bring relief to hundreds of thousands of people in dire need inside Eastern Ghouta and other besieged parts of the country, access to these populations remains woefully inadequate.On 5 March, a humanitarian convoy delivering aid to besieged Eastern Ghouta was cut short amidst ongoing shelling and subsequent attempts have been thwarted.UNICEF/Amer Al ShamiIn December 2015, a mother loads preserved food supplies in a truck as the family prepares to move out of Nashabieh village to a neighbouring safer town within besieged East Ghouta, Syria. Almost 400,000 people are trapped in besieged locations.“Humanitarian access to those in need must be guaranteed. People must be allowed to leave to seek refuge and civilians and civilian infrastructure including hospitals and schools must be protected at all costs,” Mr. Grandi maintained.Meanwhile, the hopes of millions of Syrian refugees living in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq who dream of returning home when conditions are safe are being dashed.“With fighting in parts of Syria as fierce as at any point during the conflict, refugees are understandably still too frightened to return,” Mr. Grandi continued, noting that UNHCR is preparing to assist in returns for when the security situation improves.As conditions for millions of Syrians in exile grow more desperate, the vast majority live below the poverty line and more than three-quarters sheltering in Jordan and Lebanon are unable to meet their basic food, shelter, health or education needs.Although host countries lay on second shifts to accommodate the refugees, 43 per cent of 1.7 million school-aged Syrian are out of school.“While the focus is on the devastation inside Syria, we should not forget the impact on the host communities in the neighbouring countries and the effect that so many years of exile has had on refugees,” Mr. Grandi reminded.Turning to an upcoming international conference in Brussels on supporting the future of Syria and the region, he asserted that it must result in a boost of financial and development assistance.“As long as there is no political solution to the conflict, the international community must step up its investment in the host countries,” the High Commissioner concluded. read more

Another big game another big struggle

Ohio State fans thought they could rest easy: The Buckeyes’ big game woes seemed to be over with wins against Oregon in January’s Rose Bowl and Miami (Fla.) at home in September. But alas, Tressel and his boys could not overcome the Camp Randall hoopla and OSU lost Saturday’s game, and its short-lived No. 1 spot, 31-18 against No. 18 Wisconsin. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor looked like he was unable to complete a meaningful pass. The defense allowed Wisconsin to run the ball at will. Special teams gave up a 97-yard touchdown on the opening kickoff. To put it simply, the Buckeyes’ preparation just didn’t pan out. “We’ve got to stop taking stuff for granted,” Pryor said, unwilling to look anyone in the eye after the game. “I wanted to make sure that we stayed focused … and those things I talked about, it happened today.” There were many x-factors reminiscent of recent big-game losses for the Buckeyes, one of which is the 50-percent completion rate for Pryor, who was 14 for 28. In the 2009 Fiesta Bowl, Pryor went 5 for 13 passes, after splitting snaps with then-senior and former starter Todd Boeckman. The then-No. 3 Texas Longhorns beat then-No. 10 OSU 24-21. As a Heisman hopeful and junior leader of the Buckeye squad, Pryor said he felt the weight of the loss on his shoulders after stating he had fully recovered from an injury he suffered during the Illinois game. “I can’t use the quad as an excuse, I had enough that I could run a little bit,” Pryor said. “That’s no excuse at all, I mean, the quad is fine.” It was the Buckeye defense that couldn’t come back from star safety Tyler Moeller’s injury against Illinois, as it gave up 104 yards to Wisconsin running back John Clay. The last time the Buckeyes allowed an opponent more than 100 rushing yards was in another No. 1 matchup on Sept. 13, 2008, when then-No. 5 OSU visited No. 1, Southern California and Joe McKnight racked up 105 yards. In Saturday’s game, the Buckeyes made a run with 18 unanswered points, beginning in the second quarter. But the attempt turned out to be in vain when the Badgers added a touchdown and a field goal in the last seven minutes of the game. “It’s hard to have momentum in somebody else’s house but we had a little bit of momentum,” said coach Jim Tressel about the beginning of the second half. “But, you know, (Wisconsin) delivered.” The loss in momentum, however, that allowed Wisconsin to score the final points was not unlike the loss in momentum with minutes left against USC on Sept. 12, 2009. USC started with the ball on its own 5-yard line and managed to march down the field for a touchdown and 2-point conversion to make the final score 18-15 USC. Running back Brandon Saine, who didn’t see much action until late in the game, said there hadn’t been a mental block for him or his teammates. “I think people were thinking the right things, but you know, coming into the stadium and trying to pull off a win is always hard,” Saine said. “This is one of the toughest places to play ever.” Despite their disappointment, Pryor said the Buckeyes have no reason to give up. “It was a team loss, but we’ll live to fight another day,” Pryor said. read more
