Today we get the benefit of it but after watching the World Cup and another league like La Liga I see that nobody is happy from day one that they started to use it.”To get the benefit is nice but I am unhappy to win the game like this. I prefer the technology but in a different way. Being clear. I am pro technoolgy because you cannot stop evolution but we are waiting so long, it is not clear what are the rules.”We all have to agree, the players, the coaching staff, I watch every week La Liga and nobody is happy, the big clubs and the small clubs. If you are playing to win the title or to stay up nobody is happy.”That is a good example for us. We have six months to improve the system and there is a lot of work to do.”He added: “We were very competitive. Chelsea pushed us in some periods and they have a lot of quality. I am so pleased because we scored and then competed well. They pushed us to play deeper, and if we linked up a bit better, we could have scored another goal but I am happy. The tie is still open.” read more

Ohio State defeated Michigan 62-39. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh is calling for the NCAA to look into one rule aspect of the college football world.Harbaugh, who’s both benefited and victimized from major college football transfers, would like the NCAA to look into transfer rules.Michigan has landed former five-star quarterback Shea Patterson from Ole Miss, but the Wolverines have also lost some former top prospects in Aubrey Solomon and James Hudson.The NCAA now has a “transfer portal,” making college football transfers even more talked about.Harbaugh recently said on his “Attack Each Day” podcast that the NCAA needs to look into its transfer rules.“It needs to be decided, too, amongst everybody across the college football landscape how it’s going to be treated,” Harbaugh said. “It was a case where, if you decided to transfer, you had to sit out a year from playing a sport – you’re ineligible. Or is that that anybody has a one-time transfer that they can make? A one-time transfer rule. Right now, I don’t know where we’re at. Somewhere in the abyss?”Harbaugh isn’t the only one who feels this way.The Michigan head coach is not anti-transfer, though. He’ll gladly support a player leaving his program if it’s not a good fit.“Yeah, we’ve had that experience,” Harbaugh said. “Ja’Raymond Hall was a young man who came in as a mid-year. Within a couple weeks, he wanted to, he asked to be able to transfer. The thing I counseled him on was – one: if you transfer right now, you’ll violate this NLI rule, which I believe, at that time, you had to sit out for two years. Plus, you’d be leaving without passing a semester’s worth of classes. My advice to Ja’Raymond was: right now, you and me, we’ll sit down and circle this date on the calendar. One year from now. Give it your absolute best, pass classes, get the education. Work hard as a football player to improve as much as you can, and a year from now, if you feel the same way, yes – we’ll grant you that permission to speak to other schools.”You can view his full comments here. read more

As part of his new gig at Fox Sports, Meyer will occasionally have to talk about Michigan.Or, in the case of this morning, he won’t talk about them much, even when asked. The Wolverines are playing Army this afternoon and Meyer was asked what they have to do to stop the Black Knights’ triple option attack.His response?On defending Army’s option. “What do the Wolverines have to do today?”Urban Meyer: “I don’t know. It’s not my problem.”— Eleven Warriors (@11W) September 7, 2019 It seems like Meyer is buying into the role of occasionally tweaking or trolling Michigan on air. He left OSU but the rivalry probably will never leave him.To be fair, he did followup with a little bit of football insight on defending the option.Meyer follows up by saying the origin of Cover-2 was to get a corner up in run support against option teams.— Eleven Warriors (@11W) September 7, 2019Meyer ended up giving a tutorial on defending the triple option, as well:First, he showed us how to run the triple option.Now, @CoachUrbanMeyer gives us a deep dive on how to defend it 👀📝 pic.twitter.com/N6zr1fKTRV— FOX College Football (@CFBONFOX) September 7, 2019Michigan and Army will kick off at noon ET today on FOX from “The Big House” in Ann Arbor.As for Ohio State, the Buckeyes are taking on Urban’s alma mater Cincinnati at home.

ANN ARBOR, MI – SEPTEMBER 26: Head coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines leads his team against the Brigham Young Cougars at Michigan Stadium on September 26, 2015 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Wolverines defeated the Cougars 31-0. (Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)If this is supposed to be the year that Michigan finally takes that next step and really makes a run at the College Football Playoff, no one told Army. The Black Knights have a 14-7 lead on the Wolverines in Ann Arbor at the half.This one is far from over, obviously. Michigan fans weren’t having it as the team left the field, though.The half ended in rough fashion. Rather than go for it with two seconds remaining in the half from the Army 37-yard line, Jim Harbaugh elected to send out kicker Quinn Nordin for a 55-yard field goal attempt.It did not go well. Michigan fans boo their own team off the field: pic.twitter.com/0uJGhVLU8X— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) September 7, 2019The boo birds were out in full force entering the break. It’s not a great look for a team with such high expectations in Week 2.The frustrations are pretty palpable throughout the entire Michigan football community. Jim Harbaugh flipped out on the sideline at one point, following a pair of fumbles by quarterback Shea Patterson.Those fumbles triggered some Michigan fans to call for Dylan McCaffrey to take over for Patterson, outside of the packages that the Michigan staff has created for him. The younger brother of Christian McCaffrey is a dynamic dual-threat player, but Patterson has been solidly in place as the QB1 since last season.The second half just got under way, and Michigan has already gone three-and-out. If the offense can’t get something going soon, those boos may not be an isolated event. read more

Janani K ChennaiApril 19, 2019UPDATED: April 19, 2019 16:09 IST Nani and Shraddha Srinath in Jersey Movie Name: Jersey Director: Gowtam TinnanuriNani, in his previous films, has given us a boy-next-door image. In director Gowtam Tinnanuri’s Jersey, his character Arjun is extremely relatable as to how a middle-class guy lives his life. If you have seen the trailer, you would know that Jersey is a sport drama based on one of the most loved games in India, cricket. Any cine buff would know how a film like this ends.But Gowtam Tinnanuri makes Arjun’s journey quite intriguing. Arjun (played by Nani) leads a miserable life despite having the support of his lovable wife Sarah (Shraddha Srinath) and his adorable kid Nani (Ronit Kamra). At the age of 26, cricket kept him alive, but he is ‘forced’ to give up his game, thanks to favouritism and double standards.In a span of 10 years, Arjun has lost all the spark in his life and has become an irresponsible husband. One day, Nani asks his dad for a birthday gift, which is an Indian Cricket team jersey. Arjun struggles hard to get the gift for him and in the course, he discovers that he has been stuck in a shell for a decade. The rest of Jersey traces the journey of Arjun and how he gets his mojo back.A film based on cricket will showcase the hero aiming to make it to the Indian cricket team, goes without saying. In Jersey too, Arjun’s aim is to play for India and he doesn’t wish to settle down for anything less. Life takes a turn and Arjun is rattled. The entire journey is packed with emotional moments, perfectly executed by Nani.advertisementIn a scene, Arjun makes a comeback as a cricketer and gets selected again in the Ranji trophy team. Nani doesn’t show his excitement on his face. He runs to a railway station and screams his guts out for making it to the team.Nani’s expressions are pitch-perfect for Jersey and one can only empathise with the miserable life he’s leading. He plays the role of an attacking right-hand batsman and Nani’s cricketing technique is top-notch. It has been a long time since a sports drama stayed true to the game of cricket. If it was Kanaa in Tamil, it’s Jersey in Telugu.Shraddha Srinath makes a brilliant Telugu debut with Jersey. As Sarah, she is an ever-supporting wife and not the one who will withstand all the troubles caused by her husband. She questions him and loses her cool too. But, she stands by him when he wants to prove himself at his game again.However, director Gowtam Tinnanuri could have done away with dialogues like ‘Who is important to you? Me (Sarah) or Nani (his kid)?’ The pace of Jersey is slow and it might test your patience a little bit in the first half. However, the second half of Jersey will make you forget the issues with the first half of the film.Gowtam Tinnanuri is gutsy enough to have a non-run-of-the-mill ‘ending’ for a sports drama like Jersey. It moves you and makes you appreciate life. Jersey’s success lies in its well-packed screenplay, which will move you to tears in a few places. In a scene, where Sarah and Arjun patch up after a nasty fight, one would just tear up seeing the beautiful relationship they share on screen.Having nuanced actors like Sathyaraj and Sampath do wonders for any film. In Jersey, they deliver earnest performances as assistant coach Murthy and head coach Gouda, respectively.The perfect casting of Jersey is complemented by Anirudh Ravichander’s excellent BGM and cinematographer Sanu Varghese’s spectacular work.Jersey is a film that celebrates the gift of life and teaches us to take life with a pinch of salt. It will move you, inspire you and make you look at your own life in a different way.Director Gowtam Tinnanuri’s Jersey is not just your regular sports drama. It is an emotional film that talks about a disgruntled cricketer’s life, his ever-supporting wife and what it is like to be back to doing what you once considered your life. Watch Jersey.3.5 out of 5 stars for Jersey.ALSO SEE | Priya Varrier and Roshan Abdul get cosy in a car for photoshootGet 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?

England blown away for their shortest Test innings by newcomers IrelandEngland vs Ireland One-off Test: Ireland brought down new World Champions England in spectacular fashion at Lord’s in the 4-day Test on Wednesday by bowling the hosts out for 85 runs, even before Lunch was taken.advertisement Ajay Tiwari LondonJuly 24, 2019UPDATED: July 24, 2019 22:36 IST Stuart Broad walks off after being dismissed as Ireland players celebrate (Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSEngland have been bowled out for 95 by Ireland at Lord’s in the 1st inningsIreland pacer Tim Mutagh snared 5 wicketsThis is the shortest Test innings for England at homeAn inspired bowling performance led by Ireland’s veteran fast bowler Tim Murtagh (5/13) consigned new World Champions England to the embarrassment of being bowled out for a mere 85 runs at Lord’s, just 10 days after the hosts lifted the World Cup at the same ground. Murtagh was well supported by his fellow pacers Mark Adair (3/32) and former England seamer Boyd Rankin (2/5) as only 3 England players managed to cross double digits. This happens to be England’s shortest ever Test innings at home. It is also the first time England have been bowled out before lunch at Lord’s.Earlier, England opted to bat first on a greenish pitch and under favourable conditions for swing bowling after handing Test debuts to World Cup 2019 hero Jason Roy and fast bowler Olly Stone. However, the decision soon came back to haunt Joe Root’s side as Roy was the first one to depart, having scored just 5 runs, edging an outswinger from Murtagh to Paul Stirling at first slip.Joe Denly, who replaced Roy unleashed a flurry of strokes fell on his own sword trying to drive a back of a length delivery from Adair ending up being struck plumb in front. England’s 36/2 soon became 43/7 as Rory Burns couldn’t carry on his dogged fight before skipper Root also fell LBW to Adair.England Ns. 5,6 and 7 (Jonny Bairstow, Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali), all fell for ducks as the World cup hangover seemed to hover over the side’s stroke makers. Meanwhile, Murtagh registered himself on the Lord’s Honours board after his 14th 5-wicket haul in first-class cricket at Lord’s.advertisementA brief flurry by Sam Curran drew ironic cheers from the stunned crowd but the carnage continued as Broad (3) edged Boyd Rankin to the safe hands of Wilson.Curran was snaffled for 18 at short leg to leave England teetering on 67-9 and Ireland wrapped it up just before lunch as Adair dismissed debutant Olly Stone (19).The fact that this low comes just 10 days after the World Cup triumph for England didn’t go unnoticed as Twitter users are having a field day:Ten days ago they’re world champs, today bowled out before lunch for the first time @HomeOfCricket!It’s a funny old game! ??#ENGvIREPhil Tufnell (@philtufnell) July 24, 2019????????????????ian bishop (@irbishi) July 24, 2019What England are hoping for over the next couple of days! #engvirehttps://t.co/m7ieFZRIm0Brad Hogg (@Brad_Hogg) July 24, 2019The only active Test bowler with more first-class wickets than Tim Murtagh’s 805 is James Anderson (950).

He and his family deserve better. https://t.co/KsBHXLGTXpMarcus Rashford (@MarcusRashford) September 17, 2019″The decision to publish these details has grave and lifelong consequences for my mum in particular,” he said. The Durham and England all-rounder added: “To use my name as an excuse to shatter the privacy and private lives of — in particular — my parents is utterly disgusting. It is hard to find words that adequately describe such low and despicable behaviour, disguised as journalism.””I cannot conceive of anything more immoral, heartless or contemptuous to the feelings and circumstances of my family.”Stokes was England’s World Cup hero and also scored an incredible 135 not out in the third Ashes Test against Australia at Headingley last month to help his side draw the series 2-2.advertisementHe added: “I am aware that my public profile brings with it consequences for me that I accept entirely. But I will not allow my public profile to be used as an excuse to invade the rights of my parents, my wife, my children or other family members. They are entitled to a private life of their own.””For more than three decades, my family has worked hard to deal with the private trauma inevitably associated with these events and has taken great care to keep private what were deeply personal and traumatic events.”pic.twitter.com/ojjjvstZI2Ben Stokes (@benstokes38) September 17, 2019″On Saturday the Sun sent a ‘reporter’ to my parents’ home in New Zealand to question them, out of the blue, on this incredibly upsetting topic.

This is the lowest form of journalism, focused only on chasing sales with absolutely no regard for the devastation caused to lives as a consequence. It is totally out of order.”Also Read | Joe Root, Michael Vaughan come out in support of Ben Stokes over controversial articleAlso Read | Ben Stokes slams English daily for publishing sensitive information about his familyFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
