PSG complete David Luiz signing in potential record deal

first_imgParis Saint-Germain have announced the signing of Brazil defender David Luiz from Chelsea. “He will join the group after the World Cup.” Luiz signed for Chelsea from Benfica in January 2011 and after taking time to settle, the Brazilian went on to become a mainstay in the Blues defence, helping them win the 2012 Champions League and then the Europa League the following season. He made 143 Blues appearances – 34 of them last season, including against PSG in the Champions League quarter-finals – scoring 12 goals. However, Luiz had been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after falling behind Gary Cahill and John Terry in the pecking order at centre-half last term. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho often preferred to use the 27-year-old just in front of the defenders in midfield, but with Nemanja Matic rejoining the squad in January, Luiz’s days appeared numbered. It was announced last month that Chelsea and PSG had come to an agreement regarding a fee, with a fee believed to be close to £50m, a world record for a defender. The confirmation of the deal on Friday means Luiz, who was also a reported target for Barcelona and Bayern Munich, is likely to a form a centre-half partnership with international team-mate Thiago Silva. Mourinho has already looked to strengthen his squad this summer. Press Association On Thursday, the Barclays Premier League club completed the £30m signing of former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, with his Spain team-mate Diego Costa expected to follow from Atletico Madrid to bolster the Chelsea attack. The 27-year-old will join the French champions following the World Cup, where he played in Thursday night’s opener against Croatia in Sao Paulo. A statement on the French club’s website, www.psg.fr, read: ” Paris Saint-Germain are pleased to announce that for a period of five years Brazilian international David Luiz has moved from Chelsea FC. last_img read more

Erickson: Ohio State sill in mix to crash Big Ten party

first_imgThere’s no better storyline than David beating Goliath. David is this little scrawny underdog that becomes a hero, and how can you not feel all warm and fuzzy inside afterward?But does anyone ever think about Goliath? I mean he’s probably not feeling all that confident at the time and could probably use a friend or a strong shoulder to cry on. Or at least a good, “That’s ok, buddy. You’ll get him next time.”Wisconsin’s win over Ohio State was probably the best weekend I’ve ever experienced in Madison, but just think about how depressing that bus ride home was for Ohio State.Many of you may not care with all the animosity and general feelings of extreme hatred most Badgers have for the Buckeyes, but if they have any hope of making it back to the Rose Bowl this year they’ve got some work ahead of them. Not to mention hoping fate is on their side.With a single loss to Wisconsin, Ohio State landed itself in fourth place initially and now finds itself in third.There’s absolutely nothing they can do to directly change their circumstances for the better.Winning out the rest of the season is the only way to ensure a strong BCS ranking, but other than that they can only hope Michigan State will lose at least one game – the more the better – which I’m perfectly OK with, but also a Wisconsin loss or two.About the only way Ohio State can have any influence over their BCS hopes is a win on the road against Iowa. Not only is the game on the road, but it’s against an Iowa team that will most likely be looking for revenge after the overtime loss they took last year at the Horseshoe. This loss also resulted in Ohio State’s trip to the Rose Bowl rather than Iowa.They may have to beat Iowa to keep any hope for another Rose Bowl alive, but Ohio State will be praying for an Iowa win this weekend over No. 5 Michigan State. For right now that seems about all the Buckeyes can do.The Buckeyes’ bowl game selection isn’t looking too bright at the moment. Despite the loss to the Badgers, ESPN blogger and football reporter Adam Rittenberg thinks it could very well be the Badgers who get the short end of the stick when all is said and done.In a blog posted on the 25th entitled “Breaking down Wisconsin’s BCS problem” Rittenberg gives three scenarios of how the season could play out. With some MSU losses, UW could find itself in it’s first Rose Bowl in ten years. I don’t hate the idea, but Rittenberg also decides to give us two more scenarios, the last one of which lands Ohio State ahead of both Wisconsin and Michigan State and on its way to a consecutive Rose Bowl appearance.Luckily for Ohio State, if all three teams end the season with one loss, the Big Ten tiebreaker comes down to BCS rankings. In the event that there is a three-way tie and two of the teams didn’t play each other – in this case Ohio State and Michigan State – the team with the highest BCS ranking gets the berth into a BCS bowl game.Now if Michigan State wins out none of this matters, but if they lose just one game chances are they’ll fall farther in rankings behind both Ohio State and Wisconsin because the rest of their Big Ten schedule isn’t too difficult, with games against Minnesota and Purdue.Due to a tougher schedule by one game, Ohio State would luck out and most likely be ranked higher than Wisconsin giving them a berth into a BCS bowl game, while Wisconsin would get another trip to Florida for some other less significant bowl game.If Wisconsin had scheduled just one tougher team over UNLV, San Jose State, Arizona State or Austin Peay, Ohio State’s win over Miami wouldn’t even be an issue. Wisconsin’s huge upset win over Ohio State would have had even bigger and better implications for their BCS bowl hopes.Ohio State has to win out. It has to beat an Iowa team who might as well be ready to kill if it takes a loss to Michigan State next week. It also has to face Minnesota on the road, but hosts Penn State and Michigan. If it were ever truly worthy of its No. 1 ranking Ohio State shouldn’t have any issues with the rest of the season. Like I said before, it’s biggest challenge will be at Iowa, but they haven’t exactly been the strongest team all season everyone expected them to be.When all is said and done, don’t be surprised if Ohio State comes out ahead of Wisconsin in the polls if both teams finish the season without any more losses. The Buckeyes just have to hope someone can take down the Spartans for another trip to the Rose Bowl. Even with that little Badger blemish on their schedule they are still in the mix for a Big Ten Championship. Lucky them.So the Buckeyes may not be the poor old Goliath who no one cares about when David becomes a hero. But in this mess of a season, the sad fact for David is that Goliath is probably going to win in the long run.They may be helpless for now, but fortune seems to be on the Buckeyes side.last_img read more

Lewis’ FG gives No. 11 Oregon 37-35 win over Washington St

first_img LIVE TV Written By Camden Lewis kicked a 26-yard field goal as time expired and No. 11 Oregon extended its winning streak to seven games with a 37-35 victory over Washington State on Saturday night. CJ Verdell ran for a career-high 257 yards and three touchdowns for the Ducks (7-1, 5-0 Pac-12), who haven’t lost since the season opener against Auburn.Anthony Gordon’s 5-yard touchdown pass on fourth down to Brandon Arconado with a minute remaining gave Washington State a 35-34 lead. But then Justin Herbert completed four straight passes on the ensuing drive to get the Ducks close for Lewis’ kick. Afterward, teammates picked up Lewis and held him high.The loss snapped Washington State’s four-game winning streak over Oregon. Gordon threw for 406 yards and three touchdowns for the Cougars (4-4, 1-4). Arconado caught nine passes for 120 yards and two scores. Gordon went into the game leading the nation in yards passing (425.9) and completions (35.14) per game. He has 32 touchdowns this season, including the four he threw last week in a 41-10 victory over Colorado.Herbert threw for 222 yards but his streak of 35 straight games with a touchdown pass — the longest active run in the nation — was snapped. He threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns last week in a comeback victory over Washington to earn Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honors.The Ducks were without senior linebacker Troy Dye, who broke his thumb last week against Washington. Dye has 351 career tackles, most among current Power 5 players, and has led the Ducks in tackles for three straight seasons. Dru Mathis started in his place.The Cougars got to the Oregon 19 on their opening drive, but Gordon twice failed to connect with Rodrick Fisher and the team settled for Blake Mazza’s 36-yard field goal. The Ducks answered with Lewis’ 40-yard field goal. Verdell ran untouched for an 89-yard touchdown to put the Ducks up 9-3 midway thought the first half. The extra point attempt by Lewis went wide right.Gordon was intercepted in the end zone by Verone McKinley III, who snagged the ball when Arconado bobbled it. It was McKinley’s third interception this season. But the Ducks failed to capitalize on the turnover. Max Borghi’s 1-yard touchdown run pulled Washington State in front 10-9. Jevon Holland intercepted Gordon and ran it back for a touchdown, and the 2-point conversion was good to give the Ducks a 17-10 lead. The Cougars tied it with 47 seconds before the break when Gordon found Renard Bell with a 15-yard touchdown pass.Verdell’s 2-yard scoring run put Oregon back in front before Mazza’s 23-yard field goal closed the gap to 24-20 going into the fourth quarter. Verdell added a 1-yard TD early in the period. The Cougars trimmed the margin with Gordon’s 19-yard pass to Arconado, and the conversion was good to make it 31-28.Lewis made a 30-yard field goal with 6:29 left to give the Ducks some cushion, but a pass interference call and Gordon’s 48-yard pass play to Tay Martin got the Cougars to the Oregon 12 with less than two minutes to go. On third-and-5, Gordon’s pass to Arconado was incomplete, but Washington State went for it on fourth down and this time Arconado pulled down the TD. Verdell’s yards rushing were the most by a Pac-12 player in a conference game this season.THE TAKEAWAYWashington State: Mazza has not missed a field goal this season. … The Cougs got a scare in the first half when Borghi gingerly limped off the field after a 14-yard run, but he returned. Borghi’s nine touchdowns this season were tied for second-most in the Pac-12.Oregon: The Ducks have 14 interceptions this season. They went into the game leading the Pac-12.

Reggae Gold Awards to commemorate 50 years of reggae

first_imgTo mark the 50th anniversary of reggae’s birth, the Jamaican government will stage a Reggae Gold Awards this year. The event, announced on January 20 by entertainment minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange, will recognize persons who have contributed to the music’s development.Honoring reggae icons “We will be honoring 50 icons, or 50 individuals, groups, or whoever has contributed to the development of the music here and overseas, and have helped to take it to the world,” Grange said at a function to launch Reggae Month.She did not disclose a date for the event, or the criteria for selection awardees, but said it is appropriate to acknowledge persons who have made their mark on Jamaican pop culture since 1969.Musicologists usually point to ‘Nanny Goat’ by Larry and Alvin. or ‘Do the Reggae’ by Toots and the Maytals as the first reggae songs. Interestingly, both were released in 1968, 51 years ago.Despite getting international acclaim, many reggae stalwarts have never been recognized by the Jamaican government during its annual national awards ceremony which takes place in October.Some entertainers, including influential singer Dennis Brown, were awarded posthumously. Others, like singer Eric Donaldson, have never been cited even though he has won the annual Festival Song Contest six times.Plans for international reggae museum At the January 20 function, tourism minister Edmund Bartlett said the government plans to construct an international reggae museum in Kingston, the Jamaica capital.According to Bartlett, his administration will provide J$25 million to start the project through the Tourism Enhancement Fund. This amount, he added, goes to the scoping, design and development of the facility.“We need to collect all the artefacts from across the island and the world, and to bring them here, to repatriate that key part of our cultural patrimony that now resides in different places across the world and bring it to Jamaica,” Bartlett said.Reggae Month highlightsReggae Month is officially celebrated in February with concerts, seminars and awards ceremonies. This year’s highlights include Reggae in the Village in Ocho Rios, and Reggae In the Park in Linstead on February 1; and Reggae Celebrates at Bob Marley Museum on February 6, which commemorates the late singer’s 74th birthday.last_img read more
