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
