Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorThen-No. 8 Wisconsin gave the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes their hardest test of the season on Saturday, leading by 10 at half and by three late in the fourth quarter before OSU came out victorious in overtime, 30-23.The two teams met for the first matchup since OSU demolished the Badgers 59-0 in the 2014 Big Ten Championship Game. The Badgers defense diminished OSU’s hurry-up offense in the first half, while Wisconsin’s power running game rolled through the Buckeyes’ normally dominant defense.  Wisconsin took a 16-6 lead going into halftime, putting the second-ranked Buckeyes in unfamiliar territory.The Badgers have played OSU tough in Madison in past years, even upsetting a top-ranked OSU in 2010, and falling in overtime to a sixth-ranked Buckeyes team in 2012. Wisconsin had all the momentum as the second half kicked off.  However, OSU coach Urban Meyer had some key defensive adjustments, and held the Badgers to a measly 11 offensive yards in the third quarter as the Buckeyes scored twice to take the lead 20-16.  The Badgers, then, moved the ball quickly down the field as they retook the lead, 23-20 in the fourth quarter. OSU senior kicker Tyler Durbin hit a field goal with 3:57 left in the quarter to tie the game at 23, which was enough to send the game into overtime for the second meeting in a row between these two teams in Madison.OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, who struggled for most of the first half, went 4-for-4 with the game-winning touchdown pass to redshirt sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown in overtime.  The Buckeye defense then held Wisconsin on its possession holding out for the 30-23 win over the Badgers.  For the game, Barrett had 226 yards passing on 17-of-29 attempts with a touchdown and an interception and added 92 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.  Wisconsin senior running back Corey Clement had a career game for the Badgers, gaining 164 rushing yards on 25 carries. Redshirt freshmen quarterback Alex Hornibrook added 214 yards on 16-of-28 attempts with a touchdown and an interception.By The Numbers3-3: In the Buckeyes last six trips to Madison, they have won only three times, including two overtime wins.  The Badgers knocked off a No. 1, No. 3 and 18th-ranked OSU team in their three wins.89: Barrett scored his 89th career touchdown in overtime, setting the school record for most touchdowns accounted for.  The previous record was held by Braxton Miller, with 88.0: The Badgers’ defense have not allowed a touchdown in the first quarter through six games.6: The Badgers held OSU to only 6 points in the first half, which was the fewest points scored by Ohio State in the first half since Meyer joined the program in 2012. read more

Thierry Henry to replace Steve Bruce as Aston Villa manager

first_imgThierry Henry could become Aston Villa’s new manager after the ownership change.Thierry Henry was an assistant to Roberto Martinez during Belgium’s best ever World Cup run. Players have been praising Henry left and right.Lukaku on Henry: “He helps me so much with everything in the game. Since we’ve been working closely together I think I’ve raised my game twice as much than what I thought I could do, and I owe him a lot.” #mufc [TPT]— United Xtra (@utdxtra) July 10, 2018“I think it’s so important to have somebody like him in the team.” – Adnan Januzaj (Kveo)“Thierry Henry brings something completely different,” “He’s someone that has been in the situation of having to develop a mentality as a team. To change the dream of winning something special.” – Roberto Martinez (Kveo)Steve BruceAllardyce praises Newcastle’s Steve Bruce Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Sam Allardyce believes Steve Bruce is a better fit at English Premier League side Newcastle United than he would ever have been.“Of course he’s very important to us. He brings his stories, his experience to the group” – Toby Aiderweireld (Guardian)A couple of days ago, Aston Villa was saved from its financial crisis when Chinese chairman Tony Xia sold around 55% of the club’s stakes to Egyptian multi-billionaire Nassef Sawiris and Fortress Investment Group co-founder Wes Edens. Sawiris is the wealthiest Egyptian in the world with a net worth of €5.6 billion.Thierry Henry decided to quit his day job as Sky Sports pundit in order to pursue his long-time ambition of becoming a football manager (Mirror).“These experiences have only made me more determined to fulfil my long-term ambition to become a football manager.” The 40-year-old Arsenal all-time leading goalscorer is a free agent at the moment, so it seems logical that Aston Villa’s new owners will try to add Henry to their staff before anyone else does.His appointment would signal the end for Steve Bruce, who has been Villa’s coach since 2016. He led the team to the Championship playoffs last season, where he lost to Fulham in the final at Wembley. Despite the successful campaign, financial problems began to really affect the club, which would have to sell some of its best players, including highly-rated Jack Grealish, in order to stay competitive. The new owners saved the club from financial ruin, but they’re the ones who’ll now dictate its next direction.If he were to become Aston Villa’s new manager, Thierry Henry would follow the footsteps of former Premier League superstars Frank Lampard (Derby County), Steven Gerrard (Rangers) and Patrick Vieira (Nice), who have entered coaching waters recently.last_img read more
