College Football’s Top 10 Coaches, Per Athlon Sports

first_imgAthlon Sports ranks college footballs best coaches.Athlon SportsAthlon Sports has ranked every college football coach, No. 1 to No. 128, ahead of the 2016 season. You can view the full list here. The top of the list is what most people care about, though, and inside Athlon Sports’ top 10, there aren’t too many surprises. The biggest “surprise” is probably that there is only one SEC coach in the top 10, but there isn’t a clear SEC coach slight. [email protected] ranked the top #CFB coaches in the country & only 1 SEC coach made the top 10 pic.twitter.com/cBaH9hzp4z— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) June 21, 2016The No. 1 and No. 2 spots are extremely obvious and unarguable.

Saskatchewan family says lack of government help forced backyard funeral

first_imgREGINA – Relatives of a woman who died in her Regina home say they were forced to hold a backyard funeral for her because they couldn’t get help from the Saskatchewan government.Crystal Machiskinic received support under the province’s assured income for the disabled.It covered basic funeral costs for people on social assistance, but that funding was cut in the March budget.It was partially restored starting July 1, but the new flat rate of $2,100 is almost $1,800 less than it used to be.The family says that because Machiskinic died the Friday before the July 1 long weekend, they couldn’t reach anyone in the Ministry of Social Services to confirm that some expenses would be covered.Jeff Reddekop, with the ministry, says he can’t comment on the case due to privacy rules.The service was delayed until this past Friday — contrary to First Nations culture in which funeral rites need to be completed within four days.“We couldn’t arrange to have the funeral in a facility because we can’t afford it,” Carrie Stonechild, Machiskinic’s sister, said last week.“All they had to do was pick up that phone, make that call and tell us, yes, they were going to cover expenses.“In our culture, we have certain ceremonies that we do in those four days to send our loved ones into the spirit world. And not being able to do that, we’re very upset and hurt … We should have had her rested and done our ceremonies within those four days.”Stonechild said there were other factors which contributed to the delay, but her frustration mounted when she finally reached someone from Social Services.“A manager told … Crystal’s daughter to ‘get in line’ on the call centre phone. Another manager offered no condolences whatsoever … and they said it’s not their fault. It was the long weekend.“It was just a very rude tone in their voices.”Reddekop said in instances such as this, the department contacts a family the next business day, which in this case was a Tuesday.“We understand how challenging it can be to make decisions on behalf of the family when a loved one has passed,” he said. “We very much understand what this family is experiencing, and would like to offer our sincere condolences to this family for their loss.”Reddekop added the ministry has not received any other complaints about their practices interfering with a family’s ability to make funeral arrangements while respecting cultural or religious practices.“I know it was the long weekend but at times like that, they should have backup people,” said Stonechild, who was planning to write a letter of complaint to the government with the help of the Regina Anti-Poverty Ministry.“Is this what it takes for somebody to wake up and respect our way? I don’t want this to happen to anybody else in the future.”(CTV Regina)last_img read more

Bourdains death means loss of a voice for immigrant workers

first_imgAnthony Bourdain’s culinary passions went far beyond the cuisine he put on a plate. He also was committed to the immigrant workers who toil in his and other kitchens throughout the restaurant industry.Bourdain, who died Friday in France in an apparent suicide at age 61, was an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and a fierce defender of Hispanic workers.The chef, global traveller and author, whose popularity grew with his CNN series “Parts Unknown,” often was the first to tip his hat to his employees from Central America or Mexico. He promoted his Mexican-born sous chef, the late Carlos Llaguno Garcia, to run two of his New York restaurants and complained loudly about the United States’ “ridiculously hypocritical attitudes” toward immigration.“Some, of course, like to claim that Mexicans are stealing American jobs,” Bourdain said in 2014. “But in two decades as a chef and employer, I never had one American kid walk in my door and apply for a dishwashing job, a porter’s position or even a job as prep cook.”During the 2016 presidential campaign season, Bourdain slammed Trump’s promises to deport immigrants in the U.S. illegally and build a wall along the Mexican border.“If Mr. Trump deports 11 million people or whatever he’s talking about right now, every restaurant in America would shut down,” Bourdain said in an interview with SiriusXM radio.Trump has said the wall is needed to keep immigrants and drugs out of the U.S. and his policies are designed to keep the country safe.Julian Medina, the owner of eight Mexican restaurants in New York, said he and Bourdain crossed paths a few times at industry events.“The Latino community was very important to him because in the kitchens of New York there are many Latinos,” Medina said. “He supported that because he always worked beside a Latino and put Carlos in charge of his kitchen.”Saul Montiel, executive chef at the Mexican restaurant Cantina Roof Top in Manhattan, said Garcia, who died of cancer in 2015, always spoke highly of Bourdain. For an episode of Bourdain’s Travel Channel show, “No Reservations,” Garcia gave Bourdain a tour of his hometown, Puebla. Bourdain claimed all the best cooks in his New York restaurants came from there.Montiel, who started in the business washing dishes 15 years ago, said Bourdain was “one of the few chefs that valued the work of the Latinos in the kitchen.”“There are many chefs,” he said, “that never recognize the hard work of the Hispanics.”Mel Mecinas, an executive chef in Scottsdale, Arizona, who was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, remembers when Bourdain featured his home state on “Parts Unknown.” He liked that Bourdain went to smaller villages and wasn’t afraid to sit on the floor and eat, sampling traditional dishes such as tamales with mole negro sauce wrapped in banana leaves instead of corn husks.“When he goes somewhere, he always finds the place where he can find the root of the culture,” Mecinas said. “I was so impressed about how down-to-earth he is and his sense of humour.”Occasionally, Bourdain’s penchant to spotlight minorities attracted a backlash. Last year, a blogger accused him of banning white chefs from getting exposure on a “Parts Unknown” episode on Houston’s culinary scene. Bourdain responded on Twitter, calling it “shameful, dishonest race-baiting click bait.”Latinos weren’t the only minority group that embraced Bourdain. Jason Wang, CEO of Xi’an Famous Foods in New York, planned to donate profits at all its locations on Friday to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.In a Facebook post, Wang said Bourdain’s impact on his family’s Chinese street food business was immeasurable. In 2007, Bourdain endorsed the Wangs’ basement food stall, which served lamb noodle soup with hand-ripped noodles on “No Reservations.”The bump in business was swift. Wang and his father gradually went from that stall to six eateries. In 2015, Wang had the chance to relay his gratitude in person.“I looked at him in the eyes and said, ‘this is something we will always be thankful for Tony,’” Wang wrote. “And he simply replied, ‘I’m just calling out good food like it is, that’s all.’”___Associated Press writer Claudia Torrens in New York contributed to this report.last_img read more

Unistoten stand by their claim that indigenous artifacts found at Coastal GasLink

first_imgArchaeologists found four artifacts in total, one complete biface tool and three biface fragments,  but could not make a cultural association, it said.The commission acted on an order under the Heritage Conservation Act to secure the four artifacts for protection and further examination, it added.It said the area had been logged twice, prepped and replanted, and all soil layers where cultural artifacts would typically be found had been removed and were at some distance from where the items were found.The Coastal GasLink pipeline would transport natural gas from northeastern B.C. to LNG Canada’s export terminal in Kitimat on the coast.With files from the Canadian Press HOUSTON, B.C. –  Members of the Unist’ot’en clan are standing by their claim that indigenous artifacts were found at the construction site of the Coastal GasLink Pipeline.The Unist’ot’en clan said Monday the artifacts were recovered from a site that “had been heavily disturbed” by Coastal GasLink bulldozers.  It said in a statement that the “cryptic bulletin” from the commission “ignores the role that CGL’s industrial activity has played in disturbing this cultural site and displacing these artifacts.”The Unist’ot’en have previously said the two tools were removed to protect them. The clan has also said an archeologist from the Smithsonian Institution estimated one of the tools dates back up to 3,500 years. The Oil and Gas Commission said in an information bulletin that investigators found stone artifacts on top of frozen clay soils and the archaeology branch of the provincial Forestry Ministry is working to return the items to the appropriate Indigenous communities.“The soils upon which the artifacts were found would not typically contain any such cultural artifacts, and this was likely not their original location,” the commission said.“However, a definitive determination on their exact location of origin cannot be made.”The two stone tools that were originally reported discovered were not present at the site, the information bulletin said.The Unist’ot’en said they have not been included in the archeological work done on their territory.  “Wet’suwet’en cultural artifacts cannot be properly identified and analyzed without the input of Wet’suwet’en people,” it said.Coastal GasLink quoted the Forests Ministry as saying there was “strong evidence” the artifacts had been moved from their original location, as they were found sitting on top of a frozen slab of clay. Remaining sediments are considered to be “culturally sterile,” it added.center_img The Forests Ministry said in a statement it was impossible to determine the age of the artifacts or attribute them to a specific Indigenous community.“There is no way to determine when or how they came to be in the location,” it added.Analysis of the artifacts is complete, and the branch is now working toward returning them to the appropriate communities, it said.In an emailed response to questions on Monday, the commission said the team examining the site was not aware the two tools had been removed.last_img read more

Pryor uses arm legs to dismantle Hoosier defense

Fans had been waiting all season for Terrelle Pryor to become the dual threat many saw him as coming out of high school and that he showed glimpses of last year. Saturday night against Indiana, their wishes were fulfilled, as Pryor picked apart the Indiana defense with both his legs and his arm.He finished the game with four touchdowns, three through the air and one on the ground. For Pryor, it was the type of performance that he and the rest of the passing game had been trying to put together all season.“We’re always on a mission,” he said. “Sometimes it might not show out there, but I mean not every offense in the country is perfect.”Pryor was near perfect when it came to spreading the ball Saturday. He completed passes to eight different receivers, including two of his three touchdowns to freshmen Duron Carter and Zach Boren.“It’s a great feeling,” Boren said. “Terrelle gave me a great ball that I could just catch and go right into the end zone.”“It was a great experience for my first road game,” Carter said. “I was the second read, and Terrelle trusted me with the ball, and I jumped up and caught it.”But Carter was actually more excited about a devastating block he put on an IU defender.“Football is a contact sport,” he said. “If you don’t like contact you shouldn’t be playing.”When it was all said and done, Pryor finished with a career-high 27 attempts as the coaching staff continued to put the offense in his hands.“He was glued in,” coach Jim Tressel said.Defense doesn’t miss a beat without ColemanIt’s not easy to replace a team captain, three-year starter, and All-Big Ten performer and not have a drop off.But with Anderson Russell filling the shoes of suspended safety Kurt Coleman, the Buckeyes did exactly that.OSU held the Hoosiers to 14 points, with seven of those coming in the last 10 seconds of the game against the second and third string. Coming into the game, the Hoosiers were averaging 28 points per game.“We didn’t give up any home runs. We seemed to tackle well. With Kurt not there and Jermale [Hines] limping around there for a minute, we were awfully young,” Tressel said. “But they kept everything in front of them … and I thought they were solid.”Russell started the first two games of the season before being replaced in the lineup by Hines. He showed no signs of rust as he intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble during Saturday’s game.“He’s a guy that has never changed who he is just because we changed the rotation,” Tressel said. “He works like crazy, studies film all the time. He’s a smart young man on the field and off the field.”Increased workload for ‘Zoom’ doesn’t slow down running gameAlthough it was known that the defense would be without Coleman coming into Saturday’s game, the status of junior running back Daniel “Boom” Herron was uncertain.“Boom in a real pinch could have played tonight, but I’m not sure he’d have been 100 percent,” Tressel said.Luckily for OSU, a less-than-100-percent Herron would not be needed, as Brandon Saine efficiently stepped into the starting running back role. His 113 yards were a large part of OSU’s 219-18 yard advantage on the ground.“I’ve been excited since Thursday when I found out I was going to be starting and that I’d be a captain,” Saine said. “I had a lot of fun out there, and I’m glad we were able to come out with a win. I’m definitely really grateful for the opportunity I had today.”Although Saine, a track star in high school, is known more for his speed, he has quickly established himself as a power back as well.“Brandon Saine is 220 pounds, and he’s moving those pounds fast,” Tressel said. “We always say, ‘Whoever wins the battles in the trenches is going to win the game.’”Buckeyes hit by fluIn addition to a suspension and injuries, OSU is now having to deal with the issue of the flu. Junior offensive tackle Andrew Miller was prohibited from traveling with the team after exhibiting flu-like symptoms. He wasn’t the only Buckeye that was affected.“We had three or four guys miss practice during the week,” Tressel said.Tressel named sophomore starting center Mike Brewster and sophomore defensive lineman Solomon Thomas among those who missed multiple practices with flu symptoms. He couldn’t recall which other players were affected by the flu but acknowledged there were more.OSU isn’t the first team to have to deal with the flu this year. Georgia starting quarterback Joe Cox was unable to travel with the rest of the team prior to the Bulldogs’ season opener, and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow was plagued by flu-like symptoms in the Gators’ game against Kentucky. read more

Mens Basketball No 15 Ohio State moves forward to Youngstown State after

Ohio State sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson (34) attempts a layup during the second half of the game against Minnesota. Ohio State won 79-59. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorOhio State knows it has work to do after its two-point win against Bucknell on Saturday. After allowing the Bison to make 40 percent of its 3-point attempts, turning the ball over 13 times while giving up 11 points off turnovers and allowing nine fastbreak points, head coach Chris Holtmann and the Buckeyes are moving forward, learning what they can from each game as the season continues. Holtmann said his team has a growth mindset after each game Ohio State plays, judging success by each possession and learning from the possessions that did not go in favor of his team. “Thank God it happened after a win, but if you can really appreciate that experience and learn from it, then it will be well worth while,” Holtmann said. “That’s why you schedule games like that because they really challenge us in a lot of areas.” This is the same mindset the players have as Ohio State moves forward to take on Youngstown State on Tuesday. “It didn’t hurt us in the loss column, but we have to be smart enough and focused enough to know that just because one game didn’t affect us, it can happen any other time,” senior guard C.J. Jackson said. Projected Starters No. 15 Ohio State (9-1, 2-0 Big Ten)G — C.J. Jackson — Senior, 15.1 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 3.4 apgG — Luther Muhammad — Freshman, 8.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 2.3 apgF — Kyle Young — Sophomore, 7.7 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 1.1 apgF — Andre Wesson — Junior, 7.3 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 1.6 apgF — Kaleb Wesson — Sophomore, 14.3 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.3 apgYoungstown State (4-8)G — Garrett Covington — Sophomore, 12.8 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 1.4 apgG — Darius Quisenberry — Freshman, 9.9 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 2.6 apgG —Devin Morgan — Junior, 9.3 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.9 apgF — Naz Bohannon — Sophomore, 6.6 ppg, 9.8 rpg, 3.6 apgF — Olamide Pederson — Freshman, 4.3 ppg, 4 rpg, 0.2 apgComing off a season in which the team had a record of 8-24, winning six of 18 games in Horizon League play, Youngstown State had nowhere to go but up heading into the 2018-19 season. Through 12 games, the Penguins have shown slight improvements from last season, averaging 78.1 points per game, shooting 41.6 percent from the field with 42.3 rebounds per game.Youngstown State, the No. 322 team in the country according to KenPom, has lost four of its past five games, but won its last time out, defeating Binghamton 58-48 on Saturday. In his second season as the head coach at Youngstown State, Jerrod Calhoun has developed a fluid lineup, with eight players on his roster that have started at least one game for the Penguins this season. Holtmann described the Penguins as deep, utilizing different weapons to establish explosive offensive outputs. The offense is led by sophomore guard Garrett Covington, who leads the team in scoring, averaging 12.8 points per game and shooting 46 percent from the field. He is also a threat defensively, leading the team with 22 steals, 12 more than any other player on the roster. Despite not being the biggest player on the roster, 6-foot-6 and 230-pound sophomore forward Naz Bohannon has been the main leader on the boards for the Penguins, averaging 9.8 rebounds per game, 4.4 of which are offensive boards. Youngstown State, on the season, has won the battle on the glass, averaging 42.3 rebounds per game, 4.5 more than their average opponent this season. Unlike Bucknell, 3-point shooting has not been the main source of offense for Youngstown State, who, as a team, is making 31.1 percent of its attempts from deep. Off the bench, junior guard Kendale Hampton has been the team’s biggest deep threat, making 27-of-65 3-point attempts and averaging 9.5 points per game, third-best on the team. Defense has been the biggest problem for the Penguins this season. The team allows an average of 82.2 points per game, with opponents shooting 46.3 percent from the field this season. Youngstown State has allowed opponents to score more than 100 points three times through its first 12 games.Ohio State takes on Youngstown State at the Schottenstein Center at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. read more
