Kansas State Tweets

first_imgHe was all over them -21. He had a Holiday Bowl jacket on, it was bizarre. But as somebody  on Twitter pointed out, at least he didn’t have it tucked in like Gundy would have. Twas, young Rick. Bedlam will make this look tiny. He also needs 3 TD for the all-time mark. Thankfully Mike Gundy might not know who Bill Snyder is. He who trolls the hardest… We’re all in a daze. This was right before they actually did score to which Randle punched it in with the answer. I agreed with this by the way. Thanks, Reggie. This was near the end of the game. I think I laughed out loud.Or the noise in the locker room when Gundy did his thing? Here are a few of my favorite tweets from Saturday night: I could feel it through the TV. Dana lives. Did he answer this? Considering Musburger was doing play-by-play for that game while K-State was driving with 35 seconds left….yes, I do. This is my grandma tweeting at me in the middle of the game. Just wanted to point out the awesome of this. Or that Squinky is pissed. Great point.

10 months agoMan Utd boss Solskjaer: De Gea save best I’ve ever seen

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd boss Solskjaer: De Gea save best I’ve ever seenby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed David de Gea’s wonder save for victory over Huddersfield.United won 3-1, though De Gea’s intervention came at a crucial moment.Solskjaer said, “The result was great. Obviously, you win the game and get three points. I think we started off slowly and maybe [it was] the whole occasion, we took one touch too many, we didn’t create too many chances early on but, after we got the first goal, I think we settled down, we passed it quicker. “There was a period just before half-time when you thought we would get the second here and it will be game over. In the second half, the first seven or eight minutes, I think we struggled then David’s save was the key moment for us. “You know every team, whatever game you are playing, if you are at home or away, they will get a chance because there is quality in all Premier League teams and that save must be one of the best I have seen – probably the best.” last_img read more

Only 15 of Moroccans Approve of US Global Leadership

first_imgRabat- The Meridian International Center and Gallup released a new U.S.-Global Leadership Project this week, which found that the U.S.  Leadership approval rating lost 15 points in Morocco in 2013.It seems like Moroccans’ opinions on US leadership fluctuate from year to year. Although Moroccan approval of US global leadership decreased in 2013, it is still the highest of any Arab country after Mauritania.The project, which included 160 countries, found that U.S approval leadership rating in Morocco has lost 15 points in the last year, from 33% in 2012 to 15% in 2013. Still, “the majority of Moroccans (59%) did not have an opinion about U.S. leadership. Residents of Morocco were, however, nearly twice as likely to disapprove (27%) as approve (15%) of U.S. leadership,” the survey said.Notably, after the White House’s leadership popularity in Morocco lost only 3 points from 2009 to 2010, regaining5 points in 2011, support for America’s leadership lost 18 point between 2012-2013 going down from 33 to 15%Morocco’s approval decrease (-15) ranked the kingdom among the ten biggest losses in approval in the world in 2012, alongside South Africa (-16), Nigeria (-17), Ghana (-17), Angola (-20) and Madagascar (-23).According to Gallup and Meridian, U.S. leadership disapproval was 80% in Palestine, 71% in Lebanon, 69% in Yemen, and 47% in Syria.Edited by Jessica Rohanlast_img read more

Coming off of their first win against Iowa on Sunday since 2010, the Buckeyes are moving forward toward with their eye on the Big Ten prize — especially the graduating players. Co-captains and seniors Peanut Johnson and Emma Royce said they look forward to wrapping up on a good note and expect everyone to truly give it their all. “I just want to leave with a good feeling,” Johnson said. “It’s the last two home games so everything’s sinking in, and I just definitely want to play the absolute best that I can”.Royce agrees, recalling her early years on the team when she gave her all for her older teammates.“I just remember when I was a freshman, sophomore, junior, having the feeling of wanting to give everything for those people who are about to leave,” Royce said. “So hopefully we see that extra push from them.”Northwestern’s strong season is being seen as welcome competition from the Buckeyes. OSU coach Anne Wilkinson said she looks for her team to stand up to the challenge. “I like our matchup with Northwestern because we usually have a really competitive game,” Wilkinson said. “We both have a lot at stake, it’s the Big Ten. If we can maintain possession and  finish our chances we’ll be all right.”The 19th-ranked Wildcats are coming off a shutout 3-0 victory against Michigan State on Sunday, leading with shots 25-1, and penalty corners 19-0. Their trek to Columbus on Friday will be their final Big Ten game of the season. Royce said she has no doubt that the Buckeyes are fully prepared both mentally and physically to successfully take on both the Wildcats and the Golden Bears this weekend. “Northwestern has a strong season every year, we’re by no means underestimating them,” Royce said. “But at the same time we have every faith that we’re going to come out with two wins this weekend.”The Buckeyes are set to face off against Northwestern on Friday at 3:30 p.m. and California at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.Senior spotlightPeanut Johnson, forward, Dayton, OhioTwo-time All-Big Ten selection Two-time second-team all-National Field Hockey Coaches Association West RegionHas started 56 of 69 career games with 33 goals and 20 assists for 86 pointsRanks ninth in the Big Ten in goals (nine)Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week (Sept. 16)Three times this year has had five points in a gameGoals in six games this year (OSU is 5-1 in those contests)Team captain in 2015Emma Royce, Back, London, England2013 Big Ten all-tournament teamTwo-time Big Ten preseason watch list choiceTwo-time team captainHas started 67 of 68 career gamesTeam leader this year with five assists13 goals and 12 assists in her career for 38 pointsFour multi-point games this year (OSU is 4-0 in those contests)Team captain in 2015Sydney Stype, goalkeeper, Upper Arlington, OhioThree-time Academic all-Big Ten (2012, 2013, 2014)Four-time NFHCA National Academic selection (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014)Four-time OSU scholar athlete (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014)Appeared in games during the 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons.Annie VonderBrink, forward/midfield, Kettering, OhioAcademic all-Big Ten (2013)OSU scholar athlete (2012, 2013)NFHCA National Academic Squad (2012)Veteran of 40 career gamesTwo goals and two assists for six pointsScored this year in the season opener against Saint Louis. read more
