It looked extremely unlikely that the Syracuse Orange would make this year’s NCAA Tournament after losing five of their last six games, including a one-and-done showing in the ACC Tournament. As it turns out, SU made the tournament as a 10-seed, avoiding the play-in games. Because of the bracket leak, some of the Syracuse players may have known their tournament fate ahead of time, but when the team was officially announced as ‘in,’ the team still had a pretty fantastic reaction.The MVP here has to be walk-on Doyin Akintobi-Adeyeye, who broke out a few dances after the news came in. Congratulations to the Orange on the tournament berth.
OTTAWA – The sweeping Canadian retaliation against Donald Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs has been carefully crafted in hopes of hitting the U.S. president where it hurts.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s counter-tariffs will take effect Sunday — a month after the Trump administration slapped duties on U.S. steel and aluminum imports from Canada and other allies.Canada’s response is set to include imposing tariffs on selected consumer products that come from a wide range of sectors — from hair lacquers, to ballpoint pens, to maple syrup.Ottawa released its finalized lineup Friday of items that will be hit by Canadian tariffs.Here’s a rundown of some of the states and products in the crosshairs of the retaliatory measures using Canadian government numbers.

“To suggest one of the biggest corporations in Canada is changing its name to distance itself from Canadian policies? I don’t know that I agree with that when a good chunk of their customers are still Canadian and who they interact with are still Canadian,” he said.There’s good reason for the company to be proud of its Canadian roots, he added, given its place on stock market indexes of Canadian firms and Canada’s reputation versus the United States in Mexico.TransCanada says it has about 7,000 employees in North America, with 3,500 in Canada, 3,200 in the U.S. and 300 in Mexico.It said its new name reflects its diverse business interests in pipelines, power generation and energy storage operations in the three countries. TransCanada vowed to keep headquarters in Calgary and said it plans to continue trading under the symbol TRP on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges if shareholders approve the name change at its next annual meeting.On its website, TransCanada says it was founded in 1951 to develop the TransCanada Pipeline to bring natural gas from Western Canada to eastern customers. The pipeline is now called the Canadian Mainline. “Whether they know us as TC Energy in English, TC Energie in French, or TC Energia in Spanish, the communities where we operate can continue to count on us to follow through on our commitments and live up to our values of safety, integrity, responsibility and collaboration in everything we do.”The name change was announced a day after rallies were staged in cities across Canada in support of northern B.C. Indigenous people who are trying to stop a TransCanada subsidiary from building the Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline project through disputed territory.“Some investors have grown leery of investing in Canada. I think this is a way to de-emphasize Canada, quite frankly,” said Jennifer Rowland, a St. Louis-based analyst for Edward Jones, noting delays in building new oil pipelines led to Alberta imposing crude production constraints on its producers.“Removing Canada from its name is a way to remind investors it’s not just a Canadian company, with some of the challenges we’re seeing in Canada.”She said the name change recalls the move by Calgary-based EnCana to rebrand itself with a lower-case “C” in 2010, thus de-emphasizing its Canadian roots.But Calgary-based analyst Matthew Taylor of Tudor Pickering Holt & Co., said he accepts the company’s explanation, adding the move has been talked about for some time. CALGARY, A.B. – A planned move by TransCanada Corp. to change its name to TC Energy will help it attract investors who are “leery” of putting money in anything Canadian given the country’s recent difficulty in building energy projects, a U.S.-based financial analyst said Wednesday.But the company and a Canadian financial analyst disagreed, saying the name change recognizes that TransCanada has grown outside the country, with moves including its recent US$13-billion purchase of U.S. natural gas transporter Columbia Pipeline Group and a growing list of projects in Mexico.“While our strategy and priorities remain the same, we believe the new name will help to further unite our employees and will enable us to better connect with our diverse stakeholders,” said chief executive Russ Girling in a news release on Wednesday.
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.
Cardiff City goalkeeper Neal Etheridge has hailed his team’s character and desire after their hard-fought 1-0 victory against Southampton on Saturday.Callum Paterson scored and Etheridge kept a clean sheet at the other end to help Cardiff City win a vital three points.The victory lifted Cardiff to 14th place in the Premier League table, and the Philippines goalkeeper was impressed with the overall performance of the team.“It’s great to achieve our third consecutive win at home,” Etheridge told the club’s website.“I think we played really well. We were very solid at the back. It’s fantastic to get another clean-sheet, especially at this level.Solskjaer slams Man United’s draw: “We should have won” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue another missed opportunity as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton.“Obviously, we can now progress with this result and keep going forward. The lads are very happy with the result. Southampton was a team similar to our level so it was important to get the win.“The weather conditions weren’t the best. It really started to come down after the warm-up. The wind affected the play and it was difficult for the players. The lads had to battle extra hard but took away the deserved three points.“They put a lot of balls into the box and it was a very tricky game; especially with the weather conditions. All credit to the back four with the clean-sheet.“We’ve got a great character in the squad. In the past, we’ve had to show a response from being behind to win games.“But against Southampton, we got in front and had to stay in front. The characters in the dressing room are extremely happy.”
