Vimeo/Tennessee FootballAt first, we bet some Tennessee football players weren’t into the idea of a late night lift session, but the Volunteers found a way to make the workout a bit more palatable: they turned the weight room into a night club. Tennessee put out a video of “Night Lift” on Vimeo, and while the workout looks pretty intense, there is also a light show, a fire machine, and a full DJ booth set up. We must say, this is pretty cool.During the season, we’ll have to see if Tennessee takes some inspiration from Rutgers and sets up its own version of Club Tub. This definitely looks like a party that Butch Jones and his staff can approve of, and we’re sure it won’t hurt the recruiting efforts either.
Arsenal has committed to fund a £300,000 new project in Indonesia for Save the Children.Arsenal, through The Arsenal Foundation, has committed to donate the money over three years to fund a project that will directly support 4,000 vulnerable young people by providing them with enhanced vocational education and employment skills.To formally announce the new programme yesterday, eight youngsters, who will benefit from the project in Bandung, West Java, were invited to the capital, Jakarta, to join a special activity session with Arsenal manager, Arsène Wenger and young players Chuks Aneke and Chuba Akpom.Speaking about the visit, Arsène Wenger said: “It’s always humbling to see the difference that Arsenal can make to young people’s lives and today has been no different.“This project will have a massive impact and it’s been great to come to this incredible venue and meet some of the youngsters that are being supported by Save the Children’s work in Indonesia.

A loss would mean New England has only a 60 percent chance to score that first round bye, but for the Patriots a win gives them a 30 percent chance of winning the Super Bowl, up from 22 now and 16 percent if they lose.

OSU junior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe (10) during a game against Purdue on Oct. 16 at St. John Area. OSU won 3-2. Credit: Christopher Slack / Lantern PhotographerA dominant effort from junior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe propelled the No. 14 Ohio State women’s volleyball team (21-6, 10-5) to a comeback win against No. 16 Illinois (17-9, 8-7) on Wednesday.Sandbothe recorded her first career double-double on 19 kills and a career-high 11 blocks (one solo), registering a game-high 25 points as the Buckeyes came away with a win in four sets (16-25, 25-17, 25-18, 25-23) in St. John Arena to complete a season sweep of the Fighting Illini.“You can’t take points off,” Sandbothe said. “I don’t get the opportunity to be that player and I don’t want to be that player.”Senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell also left her mark on the game with 16 kills and 13 digs, her 10th double-double of the season.“It’s a product of the whole team,” Campbell said. “Being able to get a really good dig or setting up a good block makes it easier for us to be able to distribute the ball all over the place.”After missing two games as she continues to deal with a left elbow injury, freshman setter Taylor Hughes returned to the starting lineup and led all players with 47 assists, along with four blocks and three kills.With 14 total blocks, OSU was able to hold Illinois to a .163 hitting percentage for the match. Junior libero Valeria León played a pivotal role in the strong defensive effort, picking up a game-high 19 digs.The Buckeyes also struggled on the offensive end through the first two sets as the Fighting Illini had 10 of their 11 blocks for the game. But OSU came alive in the third and fourth frames with a combined .373 attack percentage and only six errors.Campbell said a win over an Illinois team that came into the contest on a four-match winning streak will help her team’s confidence moving forward after losing four of its last six games.“It feels really good to get a really good win against a really good team, just helping us finish these last few games out strong,” she said.After a three straight games on the road, being back at home also helped the Buckeyes.“We wanted to get back in our house this week,” Sandbothe said. “We’ve got a big week ahead of us to show what we’re about, what we’ve been working hard on all practice last week (and) just bringing that to light.”OSU got into a deep hole early on in contest, finding itself down 9-1 quickly in the first set. Sandbothe tried to get her team back in it with three kills and four blocks, but the Buckeyes could never close the gap to less than five as they dropped the opening frame.That would be the only set dropped by the Scarlet and Gray on the night, however, as they battled back to take the next three. Getting back to the gameplan was crucial in the comeback effort for the Buckeyes.“Our coaches had talked to us about having a fast tempo on our sets and really limiting our errors,” Campbell said. “I think that we gave them a lot of points in that first set.”Sandbothe continued her dominance in the second set, but the result was different for her team as it evened the match at one.She picked up seven kills and her four blocks helped hold Illinois to a .000 hitting percentage for the set. Things were closely contested until the junior went on a tear, as she had a hand in six of eight Buckeye points to fuel an 8-1 run and give her team a 20-10 advantage to put things out of reach.The momentum stayed on the home side in the third set. Led by seven kills from Campbell and five more from Sandbothe, the Buckeyes attacked at a .415 clip and never trailed, taking a 2-1 lead.The Buckeyes found themselves down for much of the deciding frame, trailing by as many as five points, but worked their way back to tie the Fighting Illini at 18.From there, the two teams went back and forth, looking poised to go to extra points with the game knotted up at 23, but a Sandbothe kill and a block by Hughes and senior middle blocker Tyler Richardson ended the match.OSU will be back in action on Saturday when they are scheduled to take on Michigan in St. John Arena. The match is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins races down the sidelines during the first half of the Buckeyes’ game against Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship on Dec. 2. Credit: Jack WesterheideINDIANAPOLIS — Back and forth they went. No. 4 Wisconsin and No. 8 Ohio State fought back-and-forth with both teams’ College Football Playoff hopes hanging in the balance. When Buckeye quarterback J.T. Barrett hit wideout Terry McLaurin for an 84-yard touchdown, Wisconsin responded with a pick-six. Even when Ohio State took a 21-7 lead, the Badgers fought back to within three points in the fourth quarter, but could never take the lead.The Buckeyes (11-2, 9-1 Big Ten) proved to be too much for Wisconsin (12-1, 9-1 Big Ten), handing the Badgers their first loss with a 27-21 victory in the Big Ten championship game Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.With three top-25 wins and a conference championship win, all Ohio State can do is wait as the playoff committee determines whether it has done enough to make up for its losses to No. 3 Oklahoma and Iowa earlier in the season.Playing just six days after having knee surgery, Barrett did what he could to keep his team in the game against Wisconsin. He started the scoring with the touchdown strike to an open McLaurin, which concluded a 96-yard scoring drive, the longest in Big Ten championship history. He then found H-back Parris Campbell for a 57-yard touchdown pass less than five minutes later. But Barrett also made his fair share of mistakes. He followed up the touchdown pass to McLaurin with an interception that linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel took nine yards for Wisconsin’s first touchdown of the game to knot the score at seven. Linebacker Leon Jacobs also intercepted Barrett late in the third quarter. Barrett finished the game 12-for-26 for 211 yards, including two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also had 19 rushes for 60 yards and a touchdown.Ohio State’s offense was buoyed by freshman running back J.K. Dobbins, who had 17 carries for 174 yards. He exploded for a 77-yard rush that Barrett followed up with a 1-yard touchdown run with 1:05 remaining in the first half, then Dobbins had a 53-yard carry late in the third quarter. With Dobbins’ 77-yard run, Ohio State surpassed Wisconsin’s average of 236.9 yards given up per game. The Buckeyes finished with 449 total yards.But Ohio State’s defense kept its team in the game, making up for Barrett’s turnovers and running back Mike Weber’s first-half fumble.The Badgers had five three-and-outs, and freshman running back Jonathan Taylor, who has the most rushing yards in the conference, had 41 carries for just 15 yards, his lowest total of the season.Quarterback Alex Hornibrook went 19-for-40 for 229 yards with two interceptions. He also threw an interception on Wisconsin’s second drive of the then-scoreless game. The Badgers marched 55 yards to Ohio State’s 18-yard line. But the drive ended there when cornerback Denzel Ward picked off Hornibrook’s pass at the 4-yard line with 7:34 remaining in the opening quarter.Ohio State kicker Sean Nuernberger went 2-for-3 with made field goals from 27 and 20 yards. Wisconsin kicker added two field goals. He hit both attempts, making them from 28 and 46 yards.
Kolkata: Sri Ramakrishna had died of “throat ulcer” according to the register that has been kept with the Cossipore police station.The devotees and admirers of Sri Ramakrishna had entered “throat ulcer” to be the cause of his death in register of Cossipore police station on August 16, 1886. They entered the name Gadadhar Chattopadhyay and not Sri Ramakrishna in the death register and his profession was described as priest. Sri Ramakrishna was staying at a garden house in Cossipore and had breathed his last on August 16, 1886 at the age of 50 years.

It may be mentioned that a museum on the history of Kolkata during the time of Sri Ramakrishna has come up at Belur Math following the initiative of Swami Prabhanandaji, vice-president of Ramakrishna Math and Mission. The Math authorities are setting up an archive on Sri Ramakrishna and requested the Kolkata Municipal Corporation ( KMC) to give them a copy of the death certificate lying with it. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateGhosh said as the death register is with the government it is not possible to hand it over to RKM and a digital replica will be hand over. It may be mentioned that as Swami Vivekananda was cremated at the Belur Math campus there is no death certificate of Swamiji. During the British period the law was to register the death of a person at the police station under whose jurisdiction the crematorium was situated and not with the KMC. Sri Ramakrishna was cremated at Cossipore crematorium which fell under Cossipore police station. Though it is generally believed that Sri Ramakrishna had died of cancer, there are many doctors who believe that as biopsy was not invented in those days to detect cancer it is difficult to say whether he was suffering from cancer or not. Many of them believe that he was suffering from ulcer. Senior civic officials said as discussion on cancer was not very common in 1886, the devotees of Sri Ramakrihna had entered the cause of his death as ulcer in the register. Sri Ramakrishna who was staying at Dakshineshwar had complained of acute pain in the throat and was brought to Kolkata. He stayed in a house at Shyampukur Street and then moved to a garden house in Cossipore. It was here his young disciples started staying with him as he needed constant attention. Scholars on Sri Ramakrishna maintained that this was the beginning of the Ramakrishna Sangha. Many renowned doctors in Kolkata including Dr Mahendralal Sarkar had examined Sri Ramakrishna. His well-built body deteriorated and he became frail as he could not eat anything. Despite ill health he blessed his house holder disciples who had assembled at the Cossipore garden house on January 1, 1886. The day is observed as Kalpataru Divas.
