Sports Minister M S Gill today rubbished media reports that claimed that some of the Commonwealth Games venues were incomplete and faulty.Gill said that all the venues are architectural and engineering marvels and no leakage or fault has been found at any of the Games venues.”The fact remains that all these stadiums have no fault. There is no leakage, nothing anywhere and the architecture and engineering marvel is the first time to be seen in India,” Gill told reporters outside parliament.”Go to the Shyama Prasad Swimming complex, go to the Nehru stadium and look at the essentials. There is no serious faults in any of the stadiums,” Gill said.There have been media reports that the Talkatora stadium — venue for CWG Boxing event – and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Swimming Complex, inaugurated on July 18 and billed as the best aquatic stadium by Gill himself, are incomplete.Gill said only temporary work is to be done which will be carried out by Organising Committee.”We have still got two months and the engineers and their workforce will take care of the remaining work. All the stadiums will be handed over to the Organising Committee on August 1 and then they have to do the temporary fittings and other thing,” Gill said.”Staff of the Public Works Department will be there everyday for fine-tuning. We all will be coordinating. That’s all I have to say,” he added.

But Sunday also includes 12 NFL games, seven NBA matchups, and five NHL contests. That makes today a very special day: a sports equinox.A sports equinox occurs when the four major U.S. leagues — MLB, the NFL, the NBA and the NHL — all play at least one game. There’s a very narrow scheduling window when this can happen: Nowadays the MLB season and the start of the NBA season overlap by just a few days or not at all, depending on the NBA tip-off date and the length of the World Series.By our count this will be the 15th equinox in history, and the first since 2010.1We identified equinoxes using scheduling data from the sports-reference.com sites. Equinoxes, by our definition, were not possible before the inaugural NBA/BAA season in 1946. They did not used to be so rare: There were nine equinoxes between 1971 and 1980 (when the NBA season tipped off in the first half of October), and several years have more than one. Here’s the full list: GAMES Phoenix, of all places, is the only city to play in all four parts of an equinox. On November 4th, 2001, the Arizona Cardinals lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Phoenix Coyotes lost to the Carolina Hurricanes, and the Phoenix Suns lost to the Houston Rockets. The Diamondbacks salvaged the day, winning Game 7 over the Yankees to capture the city’s first and only championship across the four leagues.2The Mercury, Phoenix’s WNBA team, have three titles of their own.New York and Kansas City sports fans have less luck today. K.C.’s NHL and NBA franchises left for other locales decades ago, and both the Knicks and the Nets are off. But New York has its own packed calendar on Sunday: beyond the World Series and both NFL and NHL matchups, the Red Bulls play their first game of the MLS conference semifinals, and around 50,000 runners will compete in the NYC marathon. It may not quite be an equinox, but it’s still a huge day for NYC sports. Nov. 2, 2009WS Game 5153 Nov. 1, 2015WS Game 51275 Oct. 15, 1972WS Game 21236
OSU redshirt sophomore J.T. Barrett (16) runs down the sideline during a game against Maryland at Ohio Stadium on Oct. 10. OSU won, 49-28. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorRed-zone inefficiency has been a problem for Ohio State’s offense throughout the season.It appears that now the solution may have been discovered during its 49-28 victory over Maryland.And it looks a lot like J.T. Barrett.OSU coach Urban Meyer hinted during the week that the team has thought about using the redshirt sophomore quarterback inside the red zone, but at the time, he said they had yet to make a decision about it.By Saturday, Meyer apparently had made a decision.The Buckeyes went three-and-out on their first possession, but when they got the ball back, trailing Maryland 7-0, the offense started clicking.Redshirt junior quarterback Cardale Jones methodically marched the unit 44 yards in seven plays to get down to the Terrapin 25-yard line. Jones had just finished scrambling for eight yards when he jogged off the sideline, passing Barrett on his way.Barrett stepped in behind center and finished the job. It took Barrett six plays — including a 20-yard completion to redshirt junior wide receiver Michael Thomas — to find the end zone on a three-yard touchdown run.It was the team’s first touchdown in the red zone since the third quarter against Western Michigan in Week 4.“(Barrett) provided an obvious spark for us in there,” Meyer said after the game. “He’s a leader and a guy that needs to be on the field.”Despite Jones playing his best game of the year, according to Meyer, and throwing for a new career-high of 291 passing yards, Barrett entered the game when the team crossed inside the 20-yard line all but one time.The one time he did not was because Jones had just completed a 33-yard pass to redshirt senior H-back Braxton Miller, which brought the team to the 19-yard line. The Buckeyes kept with the tempo, hurrying to the line before Jones connected again with Miller for 19-yard score.Barrett guided the Buckeyes to touchdowns on all five of his trips in the red zone. Thrice he scored on rushing touchdowns, while junior running back Ezekiel Elliott had the other two.Using the two quarterbacks in specific situations was not a game-day, spur of the moment decision.“It was all within the coaches’ plan to win,” Jones said. “He felt like J.T. brings an extra element to the game down in the red zone, and certain things we wanna do in the run game. (Meyer) proves to be right once again.”The plan to begin using Barrett, who started 12 games for OSU and amassed 3,772 total yards — 938 of which were on the ground — and a Big Ten record 45 touchdowns in 2014, in the red zone came to Meyer during a walk on Monday, according to Jones.Jones said Meyer decided to then ask Barrett and Jones what they thought of the idea.“I agreed with him,” Jones said. “J.T. brings the element to the game in the run game and certain positions on the field … It was all for the benefit of the team.”And benefit the team it did.The theory that rotating signal-callers could be detrimental to the continuity of the offense did not seem to hold any merit Saturday.The offense looked much more polished against the Terrapins, as it had no turnovers and racked up 499 yards of total offense.“I think this system works perfectly for our offense,” Elliott, who extended his streak of 100-plus-yard performances to 11 after gaining 106 yards, said. “I don’t think it took anyone out of rhythm, everyone was in rhythm, everyone was playing well.”Moving forward, Jones said he thinks the situational usage of Barrett can work because Meyer does an “unbelievable job of managing it.”But whether or not the Buckeyes have found their fix to their red zone ails and quarterback situation is not so clear to Meyer.“Sure,” he said about if the issues were repaired. “Until next week.”That matchup next week is set to be against Penn State at Ohio Stadium on Oct. 17. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.
Jim Tressel didn’t deserve to go out this way. His resignation officially signals that the responsibility for the football program’s various NCAA violations falls on one man. Tressel even said as much in his resignation letter to athletic director Gene Smith — he is making “this decision for the greater good of our school.” Though they originally came out in support of Tressel, Smith and university President E. Gordon Gee have made it clear — through months of silence since — that it was in the best interest of the school for him to resign. Firing him would have been a public relations disaster. Tressel never seemed willing to step down until months of speculation — and maybe some internal pressure — apparently wore on him. Though he was the head football coach, he is not the only one embroiled in this controversy. While Smith issued public statements gently scolding the compliance and athletic departments’ role in educating players about NCAA rules, they remain unscathed while Tressel takes the fall. The problem of breaking NCAA rules isn’t just with Tressel, a group of players or even within this university. It’s a systemic issue, occurring at every institution. People question Tressel’s ethics in his ignorance of inevitable NCAA violations back in April, after learning about them through former walk-on and Columbus lawyer, Christopher Cicero. In the world of college athletics, which operates without any real moral standards anyhow, are Tressel’s actions really that despicable? In the aftermath of his actions, he should be commended for the way he received the brunt of the backlash instead of running away to an undeserved multimillion-dollar deal in the NFL, and leaving someone else to clean up the pieces like Pete Carroll did with USC. It’s sad to see a man with Tressel’s principles — true-to-life principles, not an ethical code judged by flimsy rules by which the NCAA governs — have to step down in such an ungraceful fashion. Tressel has won 106 games, seven Big Ten titles, nine games against Michigan and the program’s first national championship since 1970. His departure merits a lot more fanfare. More importantly than what happened on the field, was how he molded individuals. In a blog post from Saturday, linebacker Tyler Moeller said Tressel is a “great man that gives back to the world 24/7 and helps young kids like me grow into men; even the ones that everyone had already given up on like Ray Small.” Moeller didn’t even mention former running back Maurice Clarett, who, like Small, went to the media to trash the program after a disgraceful exit. Clarett, who ended up serving about 3 1/2 years in jail, stayed in constant contact with Tressel, who worked with Clarett to turn his life around — a testament to the true character of the embattled former coach. The success on the field, and the character he displayed when it mattered most off it, is Tressel’s enduring legacy. When he chose to hang up the vest, it didn’t deserve to be tattered like this.
Ohio State redshirt freshman quarterback Tate Martell (18) prepares to run a play in the second half of the game against Michigan on Nov. 24. Ohio State won 62-39. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThe quarterback battle between Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Tate Martell and recent Georgia transfer, freshman quarterback Justin Fields officially has come to an end before it ever really started.On Wednesday, Martell announced he will be transferring from Ohio State to the University of Miami six days after he entered his name into the transfer portal.Martell visited Miami and West Virginia before ultimately selecting the Hurricanes.On Dec. 30, Martell was asked about Fields, who was rumored at the time to be looking at the Buckeyes as a location to transfer if redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins decided to go to the NFL Draft.At the time, Martell voiced no doubt about his position on the team if Haskins were to leave, saying he was “100 percent sure” he would be the starter if that time came.Fields announced his transfer to the program on Jan. 4. Martell put his name in the transfer portal six days later.Martell saw time in six games this season, finishing 2018 completing 23-of-28 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries.The redshirt freshman’s highlight performance came against Rutgers, where Martell completed all 10 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown, including a 51-yard score to redshirt senior wide receiver Terry McLaurin. Martell also rushed eight times for 95 yards and a touchdown in the 52-3 win.A four-star prospect out of high school, Martell went 45-0 as a high-school starter at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, finishing No. 2 in the state in all-time passing yards and passing touchdowns.Ohio State has Fields, junior Chris Chugunov and freshman Matthew Baldwin left at the quarterback position following Martell’s transfer.Fields is awaiting confirmation that he will be able to play in 2019, forgoing the usual transfer rule that requires players to sit out a season between transferring schools.
Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Dan Plante Lifeguards and police get ready for Memorial Day Weekend Posted: May 24, 2018 Dan Plante, Updated: 10:16 PM SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — It’s almost here. The unofficial start of summer and it’s gonna be good.“Memorial Day is an exciting time for us, the lifeguards get fired up and ready to go,” said Sgt. Rick Snobel of the San Diego Lifeguards.In Mission Beach, the lifeguards were joined by the San Diego Police Beach Patrol Thursday afternoon for a pre-summer reminder.“The biggest thing for us is the alcohol. We will be on the sand and the boardwalks and Mission Bay,” said San Diego Police Officer Larry Hesselgesser.This year, there’s another issue for the police. For the first time, those ride-sharing scooters are everywhere and they’re breaking the rules.“Yes, we will be cracking down on the scooters. People need to know, you need a helmet, you need a drivers license and you can’t ride double,” Hesselgesser said “But the biggest thing is speed. Those scooters go 15-miles an hour, the speed limit on the boardwalk is 8-miles an hour.”Hardly anyone goes 8-miles an hour.Other things of concern going into summer, stingrays. Every year, hundreds of people feel the sting.But there is a method to avoid, it’s called “the stingray shuffle.” Instead of walking into the water, “slide” your feet along the ocean floor. Shuffle your feet. That way the stingrays will swim away.Among the other rules, no glass, no smoking, (that includes pot) and no closed tents. All tents must be open on one side so cops can see in.This is the most exciting time of the year here in San Diego, if everyone plays by the rules, then everyone leaves with a good story. Enjoy.
