VIDEO: Ohio State’s chances are better than most No. 1 comes with its own special circumstances: SMU was given the NCAA’s “death penalty” in 1987, canceling an entire season and severely damaging the school’s football program for years after. Other cases involve a new coach coming in with disastrous results, such as when Southern Miss fell from 12-2 to 0-12 in a single season after replacing Larry Fedora with Ellis Johnson. But Helfrich oversaw the high and the low — even if the high was built from the foundation laid by Chip Kelly during his four seasons in Eugene. Now the Ducks must find a new coach for only the fifth time in four decades, and rebuild the pieces of what was a great program until very recently. Share on Facebook It wasn’t surprising that the Oregon Ducks fired head football coach Mark Helfrich on Tuesday night, given Oregon’s 4-8 overall record, its 2-7 mark within the Pac-12 and the fact that the team lost eight of its final 10 games to close the season. Even by the standards of a school that rarely changes coaches, this was a fireable type of season. What was surprising, however, was how quickly things unraveled for the Ducks. Exactly 700 days — and 26 games — ago, Oregon was coming off a 59-20 shellacking of the then-undefeated, defending-champion Florida State Seminoles, and the Ducks were 7-point favorites in the national title game against Ohio State.Then the wheels fell off. What followed was the fourth-biggest decline — at least, according to the Elo rating system we like to use here at FiveThirtyEight — for any school over a 26-game span since the AP poll ushered in college football’s modern era in 1936:1For the purposes of the chart, the 26 games had to occur over no more than four seasons, to filter out teams that went on long hiatuses from Division I-A before returning many years later.

TCI Country Leaders condemn vicious memes Related Items:mentally unstable, Pdm, prison TCI Premier blasts Opposition side for “slop” information, sets it straight in HOA Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 29 Oct 2015 – The PDM Party is calling on government to remove mentally unstable people from Her Majesty’s Prison after social media chatter heats up on a recent death within the prison walls. PDM Leader Sharlene Robinson said the death of the Jamaican man, convicted of murder is drawing international attention and calls into question the country’s reputation on treatment of the mentally challenged. The PDM says it is a ‘sad state of affairs’ and asked the PNP Administration to address the need. While the Party cites that the prison is the wrong place for the mentally ill, it also remarked that so are the streets. “this Government must do more to provide the resources needed to address the needs of the mentally challenged on the street, and those residing at home…” Only Doug and Ralph and Ruth can fit, that’s why Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp

Miller-Uibo was among the stars running in the rain in a tough field of competitors and our Olympic gold medalist appeared to be getting the job done, when all of a sudden a cramp allowing three others to pass as Miller-Uibo’s dreams of gold at the Championships in the 400m were dashed.It was an amazing performance in that losing effort.. first went to Phyllis Francis of the USA, Salwar Eid Naser of Bahrain ends up with silver and placing third, legendary American sprinter, Allyson Felix.
