FS1’s Tim Brando: Notre Dame Will Eventually Join ACC Football, Is Key To Conference Launching Network

Notre Dame defeated Miami (OH) 52-17. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)This week, there has been a lot of noise made about the future of a possible ACC Network, which has been long discussed as a possibility for the league with ESPN. In a column on Campus Rush, Sports Illustrated‘s Pete Thamel called the network “imminent.” FOX Sports 1’s Tim Brando, who also calls ACC basketball games for Raycom Sports, doesn’t quite believe that we’ll see an ACC Network all that soon, but he does think it is coming, and the lynchpin to a launch is Notre Dame joining as a full conference member. That, he believes, will happen.Brando previously discussed Notre Dame’s role in the eventuality of the ACC Network on Twitter, and cleared things up a bit on “The Audible” podcast with Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel. Notre Dame/ACC talk starts around the 18-minute mark.On the ACC Network:“I do believe it’s going to happen, and I believe it’s going to happen when Notre Dame understands that it’s in their financial best interest to be in a conference, because they cannot command the same dollar from NBC or any other network by simply having seven home games televised. If you look at the revenues generated by both the Big Ten, the SEC, and the ACC without a network, as a conference member full time, they would, not only right now but certainly in the future, do much better than they are doing with their current arrangement. And I think that’s where we sit.”Brando says that if Notre Dame joins a conference in the next 10 years, the ACC is the only option:“No, Notre Dame cannot have a wandering eye. They not only signed a grant of rights with the ACC, but they signed an additional contract, which mandates that if they do become a conference member in football, there is no other place they can do that other than the Atlantic Coast Conference. And that’s through the year 2025. So (ACC commissioner) John Swofford and his people did a remarkable job when they brought Notre Dame in, to secure that when the Irish blue bloods decided ‘you know what, maybe it’s time to join a conference,’ they need to do that.”Perhaps most surprisingly, he predicts that this will unfold in the next three years.“I really believe that as we move forward, it’s a little early to be thinking about starting a linear network now, given the economics… It may not be the time in a year or two years, but in three years I believe you’ll be looking right down the pipe at an ACC Network, and I think the reason will be Notre Dame elected to become a full-time member.”The ACC is often viewed as the weakest of the Power 5 conferences, although with the Big 12’s issues, and the recent success of Clemson and Florida State, as well as a slew of strong hires this year, the league appears to be on solid ground. If it does, in fact, bring Notre Dame into the fold as a full member, it would be a massive coup for Swofford and company.[FOX Sports]last_img read more

Restructuring Will Enhance Work Of Coffee Board – Clarke

first_imgMinister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Roger Clarke, says restructuring of the Coffee Industry Board (CIB), now underway, is to improve its effectiveness in addressing the needs of the industry.“We have sought to separate the board in terms of administration from the business aspect of it. Things are changing and we will have to change with the times,” Mr. Clarke said.The Minister was speaking at the CIB long service awards function held on December 19 at the Pollyanna Caterers and Banqueters on Stanton Terrace.Mr. Clarke said that a team has been put in place “to work to see how the industry can be improved.” “It is not just about regulation but how we can do many things to lift the profile of the Jamaican coffee. There are many problems, not the least of these, your problem with roads and we have to deal with that because there are farmers, who probably cannot reach their farms because of the bad roads. As Government, we have to concentrate where we ought to concentrate and those are some of the things we will commit ourselves to,” the Agriculture Minister said.He added that research and development is also important in the development of the industry.Mr. Clarke noted also that the price for coffee has increased on the market, and if the country does not increase its production “we cannot be in the business.”“There are many places trying to copy us and trying to tell the world that they have as good a coffee as we have but they cannot outclass us. The CIB must be there to ensure that the integrity of Jamaica’s coffee remains a top priority,” Mr. Clarke said.“Too many fly by night people like to invade the territory and do all kinds of things,” he added.The CIB principal role is to promote, regulate, monitor and guide the development of the coffee industry and to assure the quality of Jamaican coffee.The board owns the Jamaica Blue Mountain® and Jamaican High Mountain Supreme® coffee trademarks and is responsible for the integrity of the brand.The management of the CIB recognised and awarded 38 employees both past and present who have over the years contributed to the success of the board.last_img read more

Ohio State womens soccers poor play results in three game losing streak

Ohio State’s women’s soccer team posted an 0-2 record against Big Ten foes last weekend and, according to coach Lori Walker, the team’s performance was as poor as she’s ever seen. The weekend started for the Buckeyes with a 1-0 home defeat to Iowa Friday. Then came a 3-2 loss to Nebraska Sunday afternoon at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes (8-7-1, 3-4-1) have lost three matches in a row, with all of the defeats coming at the hands of conference foes. Coach Lori Walker was noticeably frustrated by the team’s play this weekend. “I think our team is playing about as poorly as I’ve ever seen us play,” Walker said. After being held scoreless Friday, the Buckeyes showed more energy offensively Sunday, outshooting the Cornhuskers 26 shots to 14. Despite scoring two goals, Walker said the team is struggling most on the attack. “I think that our inability to be dangerous in the final 25 yards of the field is absolutely crippling our confidence,” she said. “Although we found a couple of goals today, we are not consistently being dangerous in the last 25 yards. “You can’t outshoot a team 26 to 14 and find a way to lose 3-2 unless your attack is in the crapper right now, and ours is.” Trailing 3-1, senior defender Danielle Scoliere settled a loose ball in the box and finished from six yards out to bring the Buckeyes within a goal in the 81st minute. It was her first goal of the season. The Buckeyes dug themselves into an early second half deficit, allowing a Nebraska goal in the 50th minute. The gap swelled to 3-1 in the 71st minute when OSU gave up a breakaway goal. Junior forward Lauren Granberg tied the game in the 26th minute with her third goal of the season. After a deflected header attempt by senior forward Paige Maxwell, the ball landed in front of Granberg who finished into a wide open net level the score, 1-1. OSU fell behind early when it conceded an own goal to the Huskers in the 11th minute. October has not been kind to the Buckeyes, who are now 1-3-0 during the month. The Buckeyes continue Big Ten play this week with two away matches. OSU will face Michigan Friday at 7 p.m. and Michigan State Sunday at 12 p.m. read more

Lisbon boss wonders if Messi will be as good as Ronaldo

first_imgSporting Lisbon manager Jorge Jesus has joined in praising Cristiano Ronaldo for his spectacular goal against Juventus in the Champions League and wonders if a 33 year-old Lionel Messi could achieve similar featsSpeaking before their first leg against Aletico Madrid in the Europa League, the Sporting coach heaped praise on his compatriot and believes that the goal that Ronaldo scored against Juventus was something that no even Messi could achieve.“With all due respect for the player, Messi is Messi. There are two aliens and one is in Madrid I will say that Cristiano’s goal to Juventus is from an extraterrestrial. We are talking about a 33-year-old player. What impressed me most was not the technical gesture, but the ability to jump that has to do with physical condition. ” said Jesus, according to Mundo Deportivo.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The Portuguese coach believes that there is not another player in the world that can match Ronaldo’s level at 33 years of age and questioned if Messi could potentially prove him wrong.“I doubt there are other players that age who have physical ability. Not everyone can do that. I know how Christian trains. It is a demonstration of the form that it has, of the great professional that it is. It is at a very high level. The question is: when Messi is 33 years old will he have that level that Cristiano now has? ”Sporting lost 2-0 to Atletico in the first leg of their quarter-final clash at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano with two defensive errors proving to be very costly for Jesus’ side.last_img read more

Hulu Sub Growth a Positive Sign but Questions Linger Ahead of DisneyFox

first_imgHulu’s accelerating year-over-year subscriber growth has brought it to the 25 million milestone. But continued questions linger about the platform’s profitability and programming, particularly as Disney looks to further its own streaming ambitions following the integration of Fox’s entertainment assets.The 48% jump from the prior year outpaces Hulu’s 40% gain in SVOD and live-TV subscribers in 2017. That growth “proves the investments that their owners are making is worth it,” said Brett Harriss, a research analyst at Gabelli & Company.But he emphasized that the video landscape is “dramatically more competitive.” Now that signing up for — and canceling — subscription streaming services is easier than ever, there’s higher potential for subscriber churn.“If you were Viacom in 2010, you woke up every morning and knew you had 100 million subscribers,” said Harriss. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Hulu’s estimated yearly losses are around $1.5 billion; Netflix’s expected negative free cash flow for 2018 hovered at about $3 billion. Some argue that since much of Hulu’s licensing expenses are going back into the pockets of its media-conglomerate owners, it’s all a wash. (Disney will have a 60% stake, post-Fox merger; Comcast owns 30%; AT&T owns 10%.)But “the best businesses in the world,” said Harriss, citing Apple, Google and others, “have been able to grow while being profitable.” For Netflix and Hulu, that path has been more difficult.Disney noted higher losses at Hulu in Q4 2018 due to higher programming, marketing and labors expenses, though those were offset by increased subscriber and ad revenue.And Disney CEO Bob Iger has nodded toward the opportunity for increased programming investments in Hulu once the Disney-Fox merger goes through.“We aim to use the television production capabilities of the combined company to fuel Hulu with a lot more original programming, original programming that we feel will enable Hulu to compete even more aggressively in the marketplace,” he said on the company’s early November earnings call.There’s been speculation that in the wake of the merger, the resulting leadership shuffle may nudge execs toward having a heavier hand in Hulu’s strategy and programming. Of the 21st Century Fox-to-Disney management changes so far, Peter Rice has been tapped as chairman of Walt Disney Television, and Dana Walden has been named the chairman of Disney Television Studio and ABC Entertainment.John Landgraf, FX head, told Variety in September that FX would have to “to figure out a way to support and enable the success of that adult streaming service,” likely referencing Hulu, which has been positioned to be a more grown-up platform vs. the upcoming Disney+ standalone service.The anticipated late 2019 launch of the Disney+ means that more family-friendly fare, including shows and movies from Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, National Geographic and Disney, will be housed on the same service.Netflix’s Golden Globe wins are a confidence-booster for its billions in content investments. Hulu’s subscriber base, even with the updated figures, still aren’t half of Netflix’s 57 million U.S. subscribers. Disney+ will be starting from scratch later this year, putting it far behind the rest.last_img read more

ShareTweet The Foyle MLA said that Cooper embodied the contrasting traditions of this island but that his driving ambition was to deliver civil rights, equality and fairness for people regardless of their background.He said: “Ivan Cooper was born to break the mould. “A working class Protestant man who saw a common injustice and inequality that had taken root in Protestant and Catholic communities, he dedicated his life to fighting it.“As an early leader in the Civil Rights Movement, few have contributed as much to peace and equality on this island than Ivan. “Organising marches in Derry for the right to a home, the right to a job and the right to a vote, Ivan often put himself in the path of danger to secure justice for people in every community. “And on many occasions that meant that he suffered vilification and violence for his convictions. It never stopped him. “Alongside his close friend John Hume, he helped blaze the trail on the path that led to the Good Friday Agreement.“Anyone who knew Ivan knows that his selfless passion for justice continued to burn brightly into his later years. “His unwavering belief that people on this island should come together to fight for common ideals and in their common interest is a lesson for us all. Especially as we face political division today.“A man of sharp contrasts, sharp intellect and, it must be said, sharp tongue, he stands as a giant in the story of this island. “And he holds a special place in the hearts of SDLP members.“I want to express my deepest sympathies to Ivan’s wife Frances, his daughters Sinead and Bronagh and his entire family circle at this difficult time,” added Mr Eastwood.President Michael D Higgins presents special award to Civil Rights champion Ivan Cooper last October PIC DONAL DUNN/NORTHWEST NEWSPIXEastwood pays tribute to civil rights giant following sad passing of Ivan Cooper was last modified: June 27th, 2019 by John2John2 Tags: colum eastwoodDerryEastwood pays tribute to civil rights giant following sad passing of Ivan CooperJohn HumeSDLPlast_img read more
