Peyton ESPNDuring Peyton Manning’s retirement press conference this afternoon, the former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos’ quarterback was asked about the sexual assault allegation from his time at Tennessee. The question was asked by USA Today‘s Lindsay Jones, who tweeted about her decision to ask the question. Manning deserved a chance to respond to what everyone has been saying about him for the last month. I had to ask.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) March 7, 2016Manning gave a somewhat lengthy answer that concluded with, “I did not do what has been alleged.” We didn’t get to hear him say that on ESPN, though. The feed of the press conference – suspiciously to some – cut out during Manning’s response. The NFL Network’s feed did not.

PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. – Two First Nations in Saskatchewan have filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against an energy company responsible for an oil spill that fouled the drinking water supply of thousands of people two years ago.The James Smith Cree Nation and the Cumberland House Cree Nation are seeking reparations from Husky Energy for the spill in July 2016 that polluted the North Saskatchewan River.They cite damage caused by the spill and allege Husky hasn’t been willing to work with them to make things right.The James Smith Cree Nation alleges in a prepared statement of facts that Husky was advised to take remediation steps after about 40 per cent of roughly 250,000 litres of oil mixture leaked into the river.The statement obtained by Prince Albert radio station CKBI claims Husky “failed or refused to perform remediation steps to mitigate, limit or remove the adverse impact” of the spill.None of the allegations by either First Nation has been proven in court.The spill forced the cities of Prince Albert, North Battleford and Melfort to shut off their water intakes for almost two months. Wildlife was also harmed.James Smith’s statement of facts alleges Husky repeatedly failed to provide the community with updates regarding the cleanup, didn’t provide updated technical data such as studies or reports or any other information related to the oil spill.The statement of facts also alleges Calgary-based Husky failed to inform the community as to when the company would be on reserve land to obtain samples, perform remediation or undertake other activities related to the spill response.The band is asking for damages to make up for its members’ lost ability to hunt, fish, trap, gather and otherwise enjoy the river.It also seeks an order requiring Husky to cover the costs of remediating the water, riverbanks and vegetation.The band, based about 60 kilometres east of Prince Albert, wants out-of-pocket expenses accrued during the oil spill cleanup period covered as well.It is asking for punitive damages, legal costs and interest on any compensation.The Cumberland House Cree Nation, located about 300 kilometres east of Prince Albert, has also filed legal paperwork against Husky Energy.Many of the allegations in its statement of facts mirror those submitted by the James Smith band.The Cumberland House Cree are also seeking a judge’s order requiring Husky Energy to “immediately and fully, and at their own expense, remove or remediate oil in the water, soil, vegetation, and debris on the reserve lands.”Husky has said that more than 90 per cent of the oil was recovered.The company concluded that the spill which originated near Maidstone, Sask., was caused when ground underneath a submerged section of pipe shifted.(CKBI, The Canadian Press)(Companies in the story: TSX:HSE)

Karachi: A team comprising senior counter-terror officials have been formed to investigate an ISIS suicide attack targeting Hazara Shias in Pakistan’s restive Balochistan province, even as the community continued their sit-in for a third day on Sunday demanding better security measures. An ISIS bomber blew himself in Hazarganj fruits and vegetable market in provincial capital Quetta Friday morning, killing 21 people and injuring 60 others, mostly Hazaras. The ISIS Saturday released a photograph of the attacker along with his name and said the attack targeted Shia Muslims. Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Abdul Razzaq Cheema said that a team of Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) officials had visited the site of the attack to collect evidence, DawnNewsTV reported. The body parts of the suspected attacker have been sent to the Punjab Forensic Science Agency for DNA testing, he said, adding that the test reports would be handed over to Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal. The official did not specify when the test reports would be issued. Meanwhile, the Hazara community members are continuing a sit-in on the main Western Bypass road in Quetta to protest against what they term as the persistent failure of law enforcement agencies to provide them security. The sit-in started soon after the suicide blast ripped through the market on Friday. Women and children are among those who have been staging the sit-in. The protesters demand an effective security plan to ensure the protection of the Hazara Shia community. Chief Minister Khan visited the families of the victims Saturday and said that his government is taking responsible steps to root out terrorist activities from the province. He also requested the protesters to end their sit-in. Despite reassurances, the protesters refused to call off their sit-in until all their demands were met, including the arrests of those involved in the attack, steps for protection of the community, and implementation of NAP without discrimination. Hazaras make up a significant minority group in Pakistan and most of them live in Quetta.
In less than a week, you may have heard, there’s a midterm election in the United States of America. This is sort of a big deal for us at FiveThirtyEight. Such a big deal that our estimable tech team of Jeremy Weinrib and Paul Schreiber arranged a fancy live-blogging platform so you can snuggle up next to us for hours on election night. It’ll be cozy.We’ve known for weeks that we’d need to give the platform a test drive, and we decided that we’d do that Wednesday, on the second night of the NBA season. We’d get together our crew of basketball writers (the ones who wrote our NBA team previews), buy some pizzas and use an algorithm to project whether Giannis Antetokounmpo has finally stopped growing.But as the San Francisco Giants discovered last night, Jake Peavy has a habit of ruining the best-laid plans.About the time Game 6 of the World Series passed a 95 percent win probability, we made the call to scuttle the NBA live blog. Instead, you’ll get to hang with us as we watch Game 7. We’ll argue that Jeremy Guthrie shouldn’t pitch more than three innings, locate where the Giants dynasty of the past five seasons would rank compared to others and, Yost-willing, debate the merits of the sacrifice bunt.It’s going to be great. Or a total disaster. Come and find out which. 8 p.m. EDT Wednesday. Here on FiveThirtyEight.
3. Coach Bo Ryan leads No. 4-seeded Wisconsin (23-8) into the NCAA Tournament for the 10th consecutive year. The Badgers will play the Atlantic Sun Conference champion, No. 13-seeded Belmont Bruins (30-4), in the first round. 3. After being in contention for a No. 1 seed for most of the season, No. 4 seed Texas fell after losing three of four games to unranked teams late in February. The Longhorns will take on No. 13 seed Oakland, who some have pegged to be a Cinderella team after winning the Summit League Championship. 5. Kemba Walker took No. 3 seed Connecticut to a five-games-in-five-days championship run to the Big East Tournament — a conference that sent 11 teams to the NCAA Tournament. The 6-foot-1 guard averaged 26 points per game in the conference tournament. UConn takes on No. 14 Bucknell, which won the Patriot League title. Southwest Region 1. No. 1 seed Kansas is the deepest team in the nation, but at times loses focus defensively. Nevertheless, the Jayhawks are a legitimate title contender and are the overwhelming favorite to win the region. East Region 1. Ohio State, the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, is the favorite, not only to win its region, but to be the last team standing come April 4. The Buckeyes should cruise until a potential matchup with No. 4 seed Kentucky in the Sweet 16. 2. No. 6 seed Xavier’s Tu Holloway is the best player you’ve never heard of. The Atlantic-10 Player of the Year was second in the A-10 in points, assists, steals and free-throw percentage. Holloway also has recorded two triple-doubles on the season, and scored 26 points in last season’s Elite 8 loss against Kansas State. 3. The best first-round tilt will take place between No. 8 seed George Mason and No. 9 seed Villanova. George Mason comes in winner of 16 of its last 17 games, while Villanova has lost five in a row and seven of its last nine. This game will feature two teams that look to push the tempo, evidenced by both squads’ 73-points-a-game averages. 4. No. 2 seed North Carolina is the only team in the region with enough size potentially to get OSU’s big men in foul trouble, and the talent to go shot for shot with the Buckeyes. However, the Tar Heels’ tournament inexperience is a major concern. 5. That said, OSU will win the East Region. The Buckeyes boast an impeccable combination of youth and experience, as well as perimeter shooting and inside play. That should be enough for them to reach their second Final Four in four years. West Region 1. No. 1 seed Duke likely needed its championship run in the ACC Tournament to secure a No. 1 seed after beating North Carolina, 75-58, in the conference title game. The Blue Devils benefited from Notre Dame falling to Louisville in the semifinals of the Big East Tournament. There’s speculation about whether star freshman guard Kyrie Irving’s toe injury will allow him to participate in the tournament. 4. No. 2 seed San Diego State was the second-to-last team in the country to remain undefeated, behind OSU. The Aztecs suffered their only two losses to BYU, but beat BYU, 72-54, in the Mountain West championship game Saturday. They take on No. 15 seed Northern Colorado, led by guard Devon Beitzel’s 21.4 points per game. 2. Purdue gets a favorable draw as a No. 3 seed. Look for its veteran leadership and scoring to carry it on a deep tournament run. 3. No. 10 seed Florida State has star player Chris Singleton returning from injury and the Seminoles’ defensive mindset allows them to match up with anyone. Notre Dame will have its hands full in round two. 4. Few expected Louisville to be a No. 4 seed come March. Don’t be surprised if Rick Pitino’s squad continues to exceed expectations. 4. Michigan State was named the Southeast region’s No. 10 seed after posting a 19-14 record and advancing the Big Ten Tournament’s semifinal round. The Spartans will play No. 7-seeded UCLA (22-10) in the first round. This is the Spartans’ 14th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. 2. No. 8 seed Michigan will take on the team that took out OSU last year in the Sweet 16, No. 9 seed Tennessee, in the first round. The Wolverines ranked 249th in the country in scoring and will face the Volunteers, led by 6-foot-7 Scotty Hopson’s 17.4 points per game. 2. 2010 NCAA Tournament runner-up Butler (23-9) is the No. 8 seed in the Southeast Region. The Bulldogs will play No. 9-seeded Old Dominion (27-6) in the first round. 5. Upsets in matches between 12th- and fifth-seeded teams are always trendy, but Atlantic 10 Tournament champion Richmond poses a legitimate threat to the region. Remember the name Justin Harper. The 6-foot-10 forward with 3-point range could make a name for himself. Southeast Region 1. UNC-Asheville will take on Arkansas-Little Rock on Tuesday in the Southeast Region’s play-in game. The winner will assume the region’s No. 16 seed and play No. 1-seeded Pittsburgh (27-5) in its next game. 5. The Florida Gators (26-7) were named the Southeast Region’s No. 2 seed. On Nov. 16, Ohio State defeated the Gators, 93-75, in Gainesville, Fla.
Quarterback Kain Colter (2) of Northwestern throws to Tony Jones (6) for a 27-yard touchdown in the first quarter against Maine at Ryan Field Sept. 21. Northwestern won, 35-21.Credit: Courtesy of MCTFor the past three weeks, opponents of Ohio State football have had to prepare to play two different quarterbacks given the uncertainty of whether junior quarterback Braxton Miller would return from his MCL sprain to play, or whether redshirt-senior quarterback Kenny Guiton would start in his place.Miller is back healthy and atop OSU’s quarterback depth chart, after playing every snap at the position in the Buckeyes’ 31-24 win against Wisconsin Saturday. This week, OSU (5-0, 1-0) is the team preparing to play two quarterbacks as the Buckeyes head to Evanston, Ill., to play Northwestern (4-0) in the Buckeyes’ second road game of the season.Unlike OSU, who played Guiton because of the injury to Miller, Northwestern has used both of its top quarterbacks, senior Kain Colter and redshirt-junior Trevor Siemian, in each of their four games this season.Colter, the starter, is a dual-threat quarterback who has more rushing attempts (39) than passing attempts (35) so far in 2013. He has completed 27 of his 35 passing attempts for 264 yards and three touchdowns, with two interceptions, and has rushed for 237 yards and three touchdowns.Siemian’s profile is closer to that of a traditional pocket passer. He has completed 47 of 70 passes for 671 yards and four touchdowns this season, with two interceptions, while he has only rushed the ball 10 times for 35 yards.Preparing for two quarterbacks is not going to affect OSU’s game plan, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday.“(Colter) is a very good thrower as well and the thrower (Siemian) … he’s an athletic guy that can get out of trouble and also run their base plays,” Meyer said. “One’s a little more run-heavy, and you have to be aware of that, and the other one’s more pass-heavy, but it’s not drastically different as far as their (abilities).”Nothwestern’s senior running back Venric Mark, who ran for 1,366 yards and 12 touchdowns on 226 carries in his junior season, is expected to be back for Saturday’s game after sitting out since the opener against California with a foot injury.Meyer said he is most concerned with how Mark could impact the game on special teams.“He’s one of the best punt returners, kick returners in America,” Meyer said.Redshirt-senior safety C.J. Barnett said Wednesday stopping the Wildcats offense on third down will be key to OSU’s success Saturday.“I think we get good pressure, guys up front do a great job getting pressure, forcing the ball out quick and we’re able to make a few plays,” Barnett said of OSU’s success at defending third-down conversion attempts.Colter said OSU’s defense has “athletes all over the board” who are well-coached, but said Northwestern has the athletes to match up successfully.“They’re a great team and a great defense, but I feel like we’re a great team and a great offense,” Colter said Monday. “It’s going to be a good challenge and something that I’m looking forward to.”On the other side of the equation, Northwestern will host an OSU offense that ranks sixth in the FBS with 48.2 points per game.“There’s an all-Big Ten player at every position on their offense,” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said Tuesday.That offense includes the 2012 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in Miller, who accounted for 281 total yards against Wisconsin in his first game back from injury.“He’s just a dynamic athlete and he can score from anywhere on the field,” said Northwestern redshirt-senior defensive end Tyler Scott. “We just got to be really gap-disciplined … how we’re going to get him down is if we have everybody flying to the ball and really getting after him.”Northwestern’s defense ranks 88th nationally with 426.5 yards allowed per game, but redshirt-junior safety Ibraheim Campbell thinks his defense will match up “just fine.”“They’ve got athletes all over the field, but that’s something you see all throughout the Big Ten,” Campbell said. “It’s just another obstacle that we’re going to have to overcome.”Making big plays on defense and preventing big plays by OSU’s offense will be key to overcoming that obstacle, Campbell said.“Ohio State thrives on the big play,” Campbell said. “That’s something that we just need to take away from them and turn those into big plays for the defense that will bolster the offense.”No. 16 Northwestern won its first four games by an average of 17 points, and it not only has home-field advantage Saturday, but also the advantage of coming off a bye week.“That’s usually when, it’s a little bit like a bowl game, you see something new,” Meyer said of facing an opponent coming off a bye week.Campbell, however, said the bye week advantage has less to do with extra preparation time and more to do with extra rest for injured players, such as Mark, to get healthy.“We’re going to be prepared either way, whether we have a week to prepare or we have two weeks,” Campbell said. “It was more beneficial for the fact that we got to rest a little, get off the feet and just come back fresher in preparation for this week.”As for the home-field advantage, Fitzgerald said he expects a “very solid home-field advantage,” but acknowledged that OSU fans travel well.“You’ve always got to tip your hat to the Buckeyes fans,” Fitzgerald said. “They’ve been some of the best in the country.”Saturday’s game is coming with no shortage of national attention — ESPN’s College GameDay will be present in Evanston, and the game will be nationally televised on ABC with an 8 p.m. kickoff. Even so, Campbell said the Wildcats are not feeling additional pressure as a result of the national spotlight.“The fact is the big game is something that’s created by the media and people outside the program,” Campbell said. “It’s just another game for us, and we got to come out and do what we do because we can’t control the hype or whatever else goes into it.”Colter, however, said this game has been circled on his calendar all year.“You dream about this when you’re young, playing big-time games like this but at the same time, we don’t want to over-hype it,” Colter said. “We don’t need to play out of this world. I feel like we just need to play our game in each phase of the game to be able to win.”

The terms and details of the transfer have not been disclosed by Huddersfield. Tareiq signed for Huddersfield from Charleroi Athletic back in the summer of 2016.After making his debut in the club’s 2-1 victory Rotherham in September that year he went on to make a further 14 appearances for David Wagner’s side.

He picked up an injury 19minutes into his Pompey debut.Tareiq’s contract with Huddersfield was meant to run until the summer of 2019 but the club have decided to let him go this summer.
Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini has condemned his team’s poor work ethics against SPAL as they slumped to another defeat.Gasperini did not only see Atalanta suffer a third straight loss on Tuesday but also his former protégé score twice in a 2-0 SPAL win.“This is a game that makes you reflect,” the Coach said after the game.“The biggest problem is being able to be more concrete. We’re playing badly in the final third, with too much individualism.Gasperini reveals why he rejected Inter Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Atalanta manager, Gian Piero Gasperini, has revealed why he rejected Internazionale Milan’s job proposal over the summer transfer window.“We conceded goals from set-pieces, which is something new with respect to previous years.“We must be able to score and be more incisive, it happened both in the Europa League and Serie A.“I’m not bitter about Petagna beating us. He gave me so much and is a young player, who will become even more important if his finishing improves.“We have several strikers in the squad, so we have to look for the right balance. We must recover Ilicic as soon as possible.”
