Ever since Thad Matta took over as coach for the Ohio State men’s basketball team, the program hasn’t been accustomed to losing. Over the past two seasons, the Buckeyes have compiled a 48-5 record with every loss coming against a ranked opponent. One of those five losses came Friday when OSU blew a double-digit lead and fell at Indiana. The loss didn’t sit well with the players and coaches, and conjured up some memories of the team’s Sweet 16 loss to Kentucky in last year’s NCAA tournament. Like the Kentucky loss, the game ended with a missed 3-pointer by William Buford that would have won the game. “We gave up that game against Indiana,” said sophomore forward Jared Sullinger. “Not taking anything away from Indiana, but there was a couple possessions when we watched film and realized that that’s not us.” Matta hopes his team uses the loss as a lesson for the rest of the season. “I think that nobody likes to lose more than we do,” Matta said. “It’s like I told our guys last year, I think we learned a great lesson in the Kentucky game, but the season was over. We have the ability to learn a lesson here at the end of December and continue to move forward.” Matta is known for being a players’ coach and normally doesn’t employ an in-your-face style of coaching. But according to the players, the Indiana loss particularly rubbed Matta the wrong way and he was a little more animated than normal. “(Matta) wasn’t very polite,” Sullinger said. “But that’s what we needed. We needed someone to put a fire under us. After that tough loss it was only right that he had to do that.” Matta described Monday’s practice as “challenging” and “tough,” and said he really harped on the focus of the team. “We’ve probably practiced this team harder than most teams we’ve had,” Matta said. “A lot of that has to do with the youthfulness and immaturity of the team and not quite understanding the level they must compete at. One of the messages yesterday was competing and a mindset carries over to the game. There was a couple moments where I had to refocus them a couple times, but for the most part I thought they did a pretty good job.” The team responded Tuesday, beating a battered Nebraska team, 71-40, at the Schottenstein Center. The Buckeyes committed 19 turnovers against the Cornhuskers, but Matta and his players felt they came out ready to play. “Last week at Indiana we was careless with the ball and we didn’t value every possession,” Buford said. “For the most part I think we did that today.” With the win against Nebraska, OSU raised its record to 14-2 overall and 2-1 in the Big Ten conference. At about the midpoint in the season, the team made it clear that while the team wasn’t going to dwell on the loss, they weren’t going to forget it. “It was a life lesson as far as the game period,” Sullinger said. “We gave up 17 layups against Indiana. They got whatever shot they wanted in the second half. As you can see, we turned up our defensive intensity in this game. We were just ready to play basketball.”
Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones (12) waits to have the ball snapped to him during a game against Michigan on Nov. 29 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-28.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorIn his six seasons as the head coach at Florida, Urban Meyer started just three quarterbacks.In what is now his third season in Columbus, Meyer is getting set to start his fourth quarterback at Ohio State.Cardale Jones, a redshirt-sophomore quarterback from Cleveland, is set to make his first career start in the Big Ten Championship Game, and Meyer doesn’t seem to be worried.“Cardale, it’s going to be his first start. Obviously a really good environment against a very tough defense,” Meyer said Monday. “But it’s not like he’s not taking snaps with the one offense or understands the concepts. So he has a very good understanding (of the offense).”Jones is set to take over for redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett, who fractured his ankle in the fourth quarter of a 42-28 win over Michigan on Saturday. Jones has appeared in seven of OSU’s 12 games this season, accounting for 324 total yards and two touchdowns.The Glenville High School product was named the backup to senior Braxton Miller in the spring before being passed by Barrett just days before Miller tore his right labrum, ending Miller’s season before it started.The demotion was something Jones’ position coach and co-offensive coordinator Tom Herman said was not easy for the quarterback to handle.“I think that was tough for him. But him and I spoke at great length and great detail on numerous occasions about how to handle it,” Herman said Monday. “He has done nothing but be a great example of how to handle that. He stayed engaged in every game plan. He has taken that role very seriously and I am proud of him for it.”Being demoted from the second-string spot in the fall wasn’t the only time Jones has had to face adversity in his Buckeye career, as a now-infamous tweet describing his dislike for college classes earned him a one-game suspension in 2012.Redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman Pat Elflein has continued to make fun of the tweet on social media of his own, and even with the media.“Not playing class today?” Elflein asked the media as they gathered around him on Monday.Elflein said with a smile that he and some of his teammates continue to joke about the tweet.“Oh yeah, all the time,” he said.On the field, the Buckeyes are preparing to take on a Wisconsin defense that ranks second in the country.Meyer said after Saturday’s win over Michigan, though, that he does not anticipate the game plan changing much with Jones in the lineup. But Herman said he does see some differences in the style of each quarterback.“(Jones is) a big dude. Probably doesn’t have the same short range change of direction that J.T. has, but (he has) long-range speed and the ability to open it up in stride. He is pretty fast,” Herman said. “I am excited to see what he can do. I think he has got a chance to be pretty effective.”While Jones might be effective, both Herman and Meyer acknowledged that they have discussed limiting his carries against Wisconsin.“We’ve had a mini conversation about that already,” Meyer said. “That will be continued throughout the week. We have to win this game. We’re not saving him for next week or the week after. We’re not saving anything.”Herman agreed, adding that the quarterback run is an important part of setting up the Buckeye offense.“In order to run the football, I don’t think you can ever take out the way we do our business,” Herman said. “You can never take out the QB read element of it. The called and designed quarterback runs, we will probably take a few of those out.”Herman stressed that the members of the OSU team should not expect Barrett-like numbers from Jones, but should expect that he will manage the game well.“The guy (Barrett) has accounted for 45 touchdowns in 12 games. So I think what our team needs to understand is, is Cardale going to come in and account for seven touchdowns in this game? Probably not, and doesn’t need to,” Herman said. “He shouldn’t have that weight put on him. To expect that as a teammate, I think would be a little bit false.”While Herman doesn’t want too much pressure put on Jones, he characterized Jones’ arm strength by rating it as “eleventy-billion.”Sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott said Monday that he agrees with his coaches in that he doesn’t believe the offense will change, but added there will be a lack of familiarity with Jones at the helm.“I think it is definitely a big transition just because it’s the magnitude of the game we are about to have this weekend,” Elliott said. “I don’t think the game plan will change much from last week to this week.“It’s his time, so J.T. went out, it’s the ‘next man up’ mentality. We are upset for losing J.T. but we got to keep it moving.”The OSU offense will look to do just that Saturday at 8:17 p.m. at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis against Wisconsin.

By Lauren Poteat, NNPA Newswire CorrespondentIt’s been more than 100 years since sickle cell disease was first discovered in America.Today, the rare hereditary blood disorder continues to affect millions of people throughout the world.Sickle cell disease – or SCD – affects approximately 100,000 Americans and occurs among about 1 out of every 365 African-American births, according to medical experts.While she champions research and viable medications and solutions, Ojiambo also emphasized the importance of being regularly tested. (Courtesy photo)Nearly 1 in 13 African American babies are born with the sickle cell trait, which medical experts said means that an individual has inherited the sickle cell gene from one of his or her parents.During its annual convention, the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), a trade organization that represents African American-owned newspapers and media companies throughout the U.S., partnered with Pfizer Rare Disease (Pfizer) to host a forum on this rare disease.“I was diagnosed with sickle cell disease at the age of one,” said Marie Ojiambo, a consultant for Pfizer, during the forum moderated by NNPA President and CEO, Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr.“And always wanted to be a support system and advocate for research, for other young women, going through the same thing,” Ojiambo said.“Because of this, I always felt like it was important for me to not only introduce myself by my profession, but also as a sickle cell warrior,” said the Kenyan native.“When I competed in the Miss Africa USA pageant back in 2014, I made sure that my pageant platform, represented the same personal goals I had for myself and advocated for, sickle cell disease awareness,” she said.Dr. Chavis emphasized, “The NNPA is grateful to Pfizer for introducing Marie Ojiambo to the Black Press of America. Ms. Ojiambo is an excellent role model for millennials, and in particular for young African and African American women, who are interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields of study. Marie Ojiambo’s outstanding success as a research scientist is truly inspiring as she did not allow the challenges of Sickle Cell Disease to prevent her from achieving her professional career goals.”According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the sickle cell disease trait is most commonly found in places like Africa, India and Southeast Asia.However, it is not exclusive to one race.Also, as the Hemoglobin disorders follow the malaria belt around the globe, those who have the trait are relatively protected from malaria.Although most who carry the sickle cell trait remain healthy, medical statistics show that if two healthy people who carry the trait join to conceive a child, there’s still a one in four chance with every pregnancy that they would have child with active SCD.Ojiambo, who graduated from St. John’s University’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in New York and who specializes in pre-clinical Pharmaceutical Research, is also the founder of the Sickle Strong Initiative—a Kenyan-based NGO whose mandate is to raise awareness around sickle cell disease and advocate for better health care opportunities for patients suffering from the disease in Kenya.While she champions research and viable medications and solutions, Ojiambo also emphasized the importance of being regularly tested.“Both of my parents were carriers of the sickle cell trait and so when they came together, I received the disorder,” Ojiambo said.“It is so important to know your status and to get tested regularly,” Ojiambo continued.“Take part in clinical trials and work to make sure you have access to primary care physicians and a good hematologist.”

Singapore’s home minister Kasiviswanathan Shanmugam speaks to press about Section 377A (Photo: YouTube) That’s why a collection of activist groups posted an open letter calling on the Singapore government to do more for LGBTI rights, Yangfa said.Shanmugam said, in his opinion, care should be taken against criminalizing lifestyles and sexual attitudes. ‘But, it would be wrong for me to impose my personal views on society or as a policymaker’.Yangfa said the minister had shown himself to be ‘somewhat impartial’. It was also ‘refreshing to hear his personal view on the matter’.Last year, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, also said he would wait until society changed before altering the law.‘My personal view is that if I don’t have a problem — this is an uneasy compromise — I’m prepared to live with it until social attitudes change,’ Lee told the BBC.Meanwhile on Thursday, veteran Singapore diplomat Tommy Koh called on Singapore to follow India’s example.‘I would encourage our gay community to bring a class action to challenge the constitutionality of Section 377A,’ Professor Koh wrote on Facebook.In 2014, Singapore’s Court of Appeal rejected a challenge that Section 377A violated the constitution.Got a news tip?

Related posts:UPDATE: Citizen Action Party candidate Luis Guillermo Solís moves into 1st place in Costa Rica presidential race Costa Rica elections demonstrate country’s democratic stability 3 things that happened this week in Costa Rica’s runoff race Costa Rica ruling party candidate Johnny Araya drops out of presidential race Pacheco said that Solís had run an honest campaign and he supported the PAC candidate not only as a vote against ruling party candidate Johnny Araya.“Our flag is the same: honesty,” Pacheco said.2. Solís wins the recount (barely)In the final recount announced Monday, Solís eked out a win with 629,866 votes to Araya’s 610,634, a victory of less than 20,000 votes.Following the formal recount, the Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE) officially announced a second round for the 2014 presidential election. The country will go back to the polls to cast votes for either Araya or Solís on April 6, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.The TSE said the electoral rolls for the second round would be the same as the first on Feb. 2. That means any voter not registered by the Oct. 2, 2013 deadline won’t be able to vote in the runoff, either.3. Uncertain allianceAraya has been pushing his business cred this week, including his support for continuing President Laura Chinchilla’s decision to join the Pacific Alliance, a trade bloc with some of Latin America’s most important economies.The ruling party candidate has spoken in favor of the free trade alliance but added that he would listen to concerns from groups like the Costa Rican Chamber of Industries, who have spoken out against increased foreign competition.Solís previously said he needed more information before he decided to support Costa Rica’s enrollment in the trade alliance, which includes Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile.4. Araya throws down a glove over deficit criticismsDuring an interview with Radio ADN (90.7 FM) on Thursday, Araya lashed out at recent criticisms Solís made against his plan to resolve Costa Rica’s widening fiscal deficit:“I haven’t been [in national office] for the last eight years. Luis Guillermo Solís has been more involved in the National Liberation Party administrations than I have. He has been an official in two Liberation administrations. He has less moral authority than me to talk about this.”Costa Rica’s deficit is 5.4 percent of GDP, according to numbers from the Finance Ministry.Solís served as chief of staff at the Foreign Ministry during the first Oscar Arias administration (1986-1990), and as ambassador for Central American affairs and general director of foreign policy from 1994 to 1998 under President José María Figueres Olsen. Solís left the PLN in 2005 to join PAC.5. Johnny’s brush with ‘tax evasion’Araya has been spinning with anger over the leak of a Tax Administration request for information regarding a $315,000 payment to the National Insurance Institute (INS), among other items, that originally hinted at tax evasion.The PLN candidate was on the warpath Wednesday and Thursday, accusing the Finance Ministry of mishandling the request, which an official delivered to his home with a passel of reporters in tow. The timing was especially bad, since Araya had been pushing his own suggestions for closing the deficit through more effective tax collection, among other recommendations.Araya claimed that the move was a setup to besmirch his name during the campaign and said the PAC could be behind the dirty trick. By Thursday night, though, the damage already had been done, consuming two days worth of the candidate’s media coverage with the seemingly bogus charges.Thursday evening, Araya’s camp claimed that the supposed payment was actually an insurance policy taken out on athletes participating in the Central American Games in San José last March, erroneously made out in Araya’s name.Araya said he’s never been accused of tax evasion.

0 Comments Share Before you can get on the train and blast Palmer, however, look at the rest of the players that are expected to shoulder a large amount of the responsibility. Larry Fitzgerald had his worst game of the year. Patrick Peterson had his worst game of the year. Calais Campbell, Michael Floyd, John Brown and Rashad Johnson had their worst games of the year. Jared Veldheer had one of his worst games. Bobby Massie had one of his worst games. It’s fair to blame Palmer because the quarterback always gets blamed, but a good game from Palmer wouldn’t have overcome the franchise-wide beat down that Carolina put on Arizona.There are no excuses. There are facts. Before Palmer hurt his finger, his season QB rating stood at 106. After that incomplete pass to Floyd against Philadelphia until the end of the NFC Championship game, Palmer’s QB rating was 78.2. He went from a 31/9 touchdown-to-interception ratio to an 8/8. The finger isn’t an excuse because Palmer didn’t adjust. Palmer needed to learn sooner what his body could do and what throws he couldn’t make. I refuse to believe, however, his finger was irrelevant to how Palmer finished the season.After the way the 2015 season ended, it’s easy to bury Palmer. You can declare, “Palmer will never win the big game,” because he hasn’t proven you wrong. Let me be the only person in Arizona who will step up and sit in the driver’s seat of the Palmer bandwagon. I want Palmer back as the Cardinals’ quarterback in 2016. Not just because he’s a better option than “what’s out there,” but also because you can win a Super Bowl with Palmer. Yes, I said that. Arizona Cardinals’ Carson Palmer watches from the bench during the second half the NFL football NFC Championship game against the Carolina Panthers, Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016, in Charlotte, N.C. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling I don’t know if Arizona will win, but a healthy Palmer won’t be the reason they lose. I won’t dismiss the third-highest 2015 passer rating in the league due to what I saw Sunday. There’s a long list of quarterbacks with a history of playoff failure. Some of them got out from under the “can’t win the big one” tag to end up winning the big one. There’s no reason why Palmer can’t add to the list.Palmer is relentless in his preparation but most of that preparation is done through drawing on past experiences. He’s always learned through failure. We’re talking about a man who will finish second in the MVP voting. He will learn from this year and be more prepared for the emotions of the postseason next year. The players and coaches believe in Palmer, and so do I.Be angry. Don’t panic. Bet against Palmer now and I’ll bet you’ll get run over by the bus later. – / 69 Carson Palmer played terrible.There is no silver lining. Quarterback is the number one position in all of sports. The quarterback played poorly in his first Cardinals postseason start and was awful in his second. It’s almost impossible to win a playoff game when there’s a meltdown at the quarterback position.I’ll be glad to lead the frustration train that is angry at Palmer for playing so poorly.
