Everton embarrass woeful Manchester United to turn up the heat on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Lucas Digne hurled in a long throw to the middle of the United area, Dominic Calvert Lewin, despite being several inches smaller than his markers, headed on. And Richarlison, lurking unattended in tha Dortmund fans.For the final home game of the season, USA international Pulisic was presented with yellow flowers on the Westfalenstadion pitch minutes before kick-off in the Bundesliga match with Fortuna Dusseldorf.”Dortmund will always feel like he middle of the area, finished with a smart overhead volley.

The statistics of that goal been speaking with Roma director Franco Baldini for some months about the young Italy international.And Tuttosport says Levy has now acted by tabling an opening bid.Spurs have offered €20m cash plus Toby Alderweireld in exchange for Zaniolo, with did not make comfortable reading for Solskjaer: United have now not kept a clean sheet in 11 consecutive games, their worst sequence in 21 years; and this was now the most goals ever conceded in a Premier League season.

And things were not about to improve. Everton were full of ideas and running. United, on the other hand, had no invention, no craft, no pace. Lacklustre and disconnected, Paul Pogba was a passenger, Fred hapless and hopeless, Nemanja Matic statuesque. With the defence an accident waiting to happen and the three-man attack barely able to counter, it was like Jose Mourinho had never left.

Despite the drift towards their own goal, United won their first corner after 27 minutes. It was the most false of false dawns. Marcus Rashford’s cross was headed out by Digne, Idrissa Gueye broke into the United half, he passed to Bernard who forwarded the ball to Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Icelander stepped inside a static Matic and walloped the ball past De Gea from 25 yards out.

United’s woeful condition was summed up by the attempt to retaliate. The ball was passed between Romelu Lukaku and Pogba, who laid it back to Fred. The Brazilian put it straight out into touch.

Solskjaer, who had spent much of the first half coming to the edge of his technical area and making the kind of vague gestures of a man lost in a gathering fog, made two changes at half-time in an attempt to resolve things: Ashley Young replaced Jones and Scott McTominay arrived for Fred. But the second half did not start any better for the visitors, Dalot immediately picking out Bernard.

It did not get any better for United and their rapidly diminishing Champions League qualification hopes. A half-hearted clearance from a corner fell to Digne, so far out he was practically in Stanley Park. He simply stroked the ball through a forest of limbs into the corner of De Gea’s goal. Then Smalling slipped as he attempted to close down Calvert Lewin. Five minutes later, Sigurdsson nutmegged Lindelof as he sent the substitute Theo Walcott through on the United goal. He compounded the misery with a fourth.

United’s afternoon was summed up by the fact Jordan Pickford didn’t have to make a save until the 85th minute, when his side were four up. For whoever is still in Solskjaer’s plans for next season, Thursday nights await. Champions League? You’re having a laugh.


He’s currently on a run of five games without a goal, having scored six goals in three games before that. He’ll be hoping to end his current drought at his former club today.

Scouting Report Week 8 – Bills-Raiders


The Raiders defensive scheme is designed to get Mransfer ban, it’s been suggested in Italy they could sign Van de Beek in January with the aim to taking him to London next summer.However, after victory over PSV Eindhoven in yesterday’s Johan Cruyff Shield, Van de Beek responded to the Blues rumoursack in one-on-ones in pass rushing situations. Buffalo’s offensive staff will need to provide help at times for Glenn as few offensive tackles can handle Mack one-on-one. Last year, Mack had seven tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and fumble recovery and a pass breakup.

Hughes was not credited with a single tackle in last year’s game against Oakland despite playing 43 snaps. You can rest assured Hughes will be motivated to change that storyline in his rematch with Penn.

There’s a decent chance that White follows Cooper wherever he goes if E.J. Gaines doesn’t play Sunday. White won’t be intimidated by Cooper having faced him for two years in college, but he does consider Cooper one of the sharpest route runners he’s ever faced. And Cooper is riding high after an 11-catch, 210-yard outing last week with a pair of TDs.

The Bills seventh-ranked run defense should fare well against an Oakland rushing attack that doesn’t have their hammer in Marshawn Lynch. The power back is serving a one-game league-imposed suspension for bumping an official. Even with Lynch this season the Raiders are managing less than 93 rushing yards per game.

Buffalo’s offense should fare well against one of the league’s worst third down defenses, but the Bills defense has to do well in getting off the field against Derek Carr and the Raiders high-powered attack. Oakland has had a high rate of three-and-outs this season, but last week against the Chiefs they had just one three-and-out on 10 possessions. If Buffalo can hold Oakland under 40 percent on third down conversions they stand a good chance of winning the game.

Stepping in to fill the void will be Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington. Oakland also elevated Elijah Hood from their practice squad. Richard has seen more time and is averaging 4.5 yards per carry.

Amari Cooper had a breakout game with 11 catches for 210 yards and a pair of touchdowns last week. In an effort to get him more opportunities to make plays, the Raiders offensive staff had him work out of the slot more than ever.

By the end of the game, Cooper had made six of his 11 receptions running out of slot alignments. According to @SportsradarUS, Cooper had never caught more than three passes out of the slot in a game.

The Raiders have some cornerbacks battling injuries this week, including starter David Amerson. Amerson is dealing with a foot injury and his backup rookie Gareon Conley is battling a shin injury. Neither player practiced on Wednesday.

If neither player can go on Sunday, Oakland will be down to four healthy cornerbacks on their roster. Veteran Sean Smith would be the expected fill-in starter if Amerson and Conley cannot play.

It’s hard to keep Derek Carr from making plays in the passing game, but the Bills have to play right to the end after watching Oakland’s quarterback orchestrate a comeback last year against Buffalo that wiped out a 15-point deficit. The Bills were up 24-9 midway through the third quarter in last year’s game at Oakland, but Carr led four unanswered touchdown drives to lift the Raiders to 14-point victory.

Carr led a game-winning come from behind drive in the fourth quarter last week against Kansas City marking the 12th time he’s done that since 2015, more than any other quarterback in the league.

Helping Carr of late is play action. Prior to last week’s gam Everton-news-Carlo-Ancelotti-Man-Utd-Tottenham-West-Ham-Marseille-Morgan-Sanson” target=”_blank”>Daily Express says the former French under-21 international has been tracked by a whole host of Premier League clubs over the last year.West Ham, Manchee, the Raiders had just nine plays in which they made use of play action. Oakland used play action nine times alone in their game against the Chiefs.

The Raiders defense hasn’t been too effective in forcing turnovers. They managed to collect just five in seven games. All of those takeaways have come via fumble recoveries as Oakland is the only team in the league that has yet to record an interception. They’ve gone seven straight games without a pick making it the longest streak to start a season in the NFL since 1950.

Buffalo has committed the fewest turnovers through their first six games in team history (3).

The Bills have scored at least 20 points in 12 consecutive home games, the longest active streak of its kind in the NFL. The Bills are 4-0 this season overall when scoring 20 points.

Stephen Hauschka needs three points to reach 900 in his career and one 50-yard field goal to set the NFL record for most consecutive 50-yard plus attempts made (13).

Jerry Hughes needs one sack for 40 in his career.

Mike Tolbert needs one rushing touchdown to become the fifth active player to have 35 rushing touchdowns and 10 receiving touchdowns.

Kyle Williams needs one start to have the second-most career starts by a Bills defensive lineman in team history, passing Fred Smerlas (152).

Bills Today: How difficult is Buffalo's 2018 schedule?


With the NFL’s schedule officially released yesterday, one must wonder how difficult the team’s schedule is . To rank teams, the combined 2017 record of all 16 opponents and their combined winning percentages are compiled to determine schedule difficulty.

The Bills have the 18th most difficult schedule in the NFL. The Bills 2018 opponents had a combined record of 127-129, a win percentage of 49.6%. Five of the games the Bills play this season will be against teams that made the playoffs last season (Titans, Jaguars, Vikings and the Patriots twice.) Three more games will be played against teams with a winning record (Ravens, Lion and Chargers.)

In the AFC East, only the Dolphins have a schedule considered more difficult than the Bills’ – tied for 15th with the Cowboys and the 49ers. The Patriots’ schedule is ranked 22nd in the NFL, and the Jets’ schedule ranked 25th.   

“First thing first, A.J. McCarron might be pretty good,” said Brandt. “Let me just put that out there. The Buffalo Bills were in a road playoff game going neck and neck with a very good Jacksonville team, with Tyrod Taylor. A.J McCarron, I think, is going to be better than Tyrod Taylor and he doesn’t need to be that much better… A.J. McCarron can get them to the playoffs. There’s my hot take.”

McCarron may have experience in the NFL, along with nearly beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC wild card game in 2016, but Peter Schrager wants the Bills to go for the “home run.”

“Can the Bills go and make the trade and get the quarterback?” asked Schrager. “I want them to go make that play for a quarterback whether it be Baker Mayfield, been recalled by Belgium for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Scotland.The 33-year-old announced on Sunday that he is leaving Manchester City to rejoin Anderlecht as player-manager.He has not played for Belgium since November 2018 b whether it be Josh Allen. I’m not saying go to six, or go to five. Go for the one or the two pick… Finally have your guy. Not since Jim Kelly, has that organization had the guy.”

Brandon Beane did discuss his thoughts about finding a franchise QB during his press conference on Monday.

“You’ve got told Zlatan Ibrahimovic to call him.Off contract next month from LA Galaxy, the Swede is keen to continue playing – at 38.Solskjaer won’t rule out re-signing the striker, stating: “Ibrahimovic? Of course, if he were 28 years old next month, and not 38, have a franchise quarterback,” said Beane. “That’s one of the main jobs of a GM is to find a franchise quarterback, it’s a quarterback league, I’ll say it every single time. You have to have one.”

The same question GMFB asked on the show, was answered by Beane on Monday. Can the Bills draft be considered successful if they don’t draft a franchise QB?

“Yes,” said Beane.

The NFL draft begins in one week and there are hundreds of players hoping for their name to be called. But every year, after the draft there are leftover prospects. Sometimes, those prospects end up being steals on the free agent market.

of the greatest undrafted players in each franchise’s history. For the Bills, the greatest undrafted success was center, Kent Hull.

Hull’s three Pro Bowls with the Bills are tied for second among undrafted players to have played for Buffalo, and his longevity with the team makes him the choice over other candidates such as Fred Jackson, Tony Greene and Booker Edgerson. After beginning his career in the United States Football League, Hull spent 11 seasons snapping to Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly frty.The 28-year-old has signed a two-year contract with Valencia, joining them on a free transfer in the hopes of getting his career back on track.Mangala posted to social media: “These last years I have grown enormously as a player and a man. “I holdom 1986 through 1996. Hull, who died in 2011, is a member of the Bills’ wall of fame and 50th anniversary team.

Apart of the team during their historic four consecutive Super Bowl appearances, Hull will go down as one of the greatest offensive linemen in Bills history. And they never had to use a draft pick.

Draft Profile: Ali Marpet to make leap from D-3 to the NFL


Although he’s a Division III prospect, Hobart College OL Ali Marpet has consistently demonstrated many of the measurables that NFL executives yearn for.

Ali Marpet grew up in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, a small village that lies adjacent to the Hudson River. Although a talented lineman, he weighed just over 200 pounds his junior year of high school and was lightly recruited by division one programs. Marpet explained his decision to remain in New York State Paul Pogba.Real president Florentino Perez has offered Zidane alternatives – Napoli ace Fabian Ruiz and Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen – but he remains determined to bring Pogba to Madrid.That’s according to Okdiario’s chief pundit Eduardo Inand further his football career at Hobart College i of City’s Champions League meeting with Shakhtar Donetsk, conceded the striker has endured a frustrating time with Sergio Aguero, now injured, selected ahead of him.He said, “It’s not easy for Gabriel, there’s no other striker at this level who can n Geneva, New York.

“It was an academic decision; that’s why I went to Hobart,” he said. “I went to a smaller high school, and we didn’t produce a lot of D-I guys, so I wound up at Hobart.”

Marpet was a starter his sophomore year was named a team captain before his junior season, an accomplishment that “rarely happens” according to former teammate and current Hobart assistant coach Tom Elder.

“He always led by example, always put extra work in,” said Elder “Players gravitated to him because he consistently made the right decisions.”

His junior year was also the time that NFL scouts took notice. Beyond his dominant play on the field, Marpet put on the proper weight while maintaining great athleticism. His once far-fetched dream of playing in the NFL was becoming a potential reality.

“BLESTO (scouting service) came by, and I ran the 40 for them, I took the Wonderlic and they measured me, and I discovered that I had the same physical tools as some of the other offensive linemen,” Marpet said. “So I said, ‘Why not me?'”

Marpet played at the 300-pound mark his senior season and was named D3Football.com First Team All-American, an award that concluded his illustrious career.

The obvious question regarding Marpet is how he will transition from the Division III level to the NFL, as there has not been an offensive lineman drafted from the Division III level in the past 19 years. How would he compete when matched up against elite Division I talent? Marpet silenced many critics and enhanced his draft status after a strong week at the Senior Bowl in January. The feedback he received throughout the week from NFL coaches also did wonders for his morale.

“The Senior Bowl was a huge confidence-booster,” he said. “I think they understood that I could play in the NFL, and that was big for me.”

Marpet continued to impress at the NFL Combine in February, where he ran the 40-yard dash faster than any other offensive lineman at 4.98 seconds. He coupled his showing of speed with strength, ranking highly among offensive lineman at the combine with 30 bench press repetitions (225 lbs).

“I believe he can be a starting center in this league,” says NFL media draft analyst Mike Mayock. “He is checking off all the boxes.”

For Marpet to experience NFL success many believe he must leave his collegiate position of tackle for a move inside to guard or center. Former Hobart center and current offensive line coach, Mike Green, played alongside Marpet and also coached him this past season. He suggested the difficulty of a position switch, but believes that Marpet is up for the challenge.

“He is working to improve on his snapping technique and combining that with blocking,” said Green. “From playing offensive tackle his entire career, he never had any game experience playing center. I believe he is quickly learning the skill and I have complete confidence that he will be able to play center at the next level.”

Ohio State vs. Nebraska: Live stream, watch online, TV channel, kickoff time, odds, pick, prediction


A busy weekend of college football caps off on Saturday night with a huge Big Ten showdown as No. 5 Ohio State hits the road to take on Nebraska. The Buckeyes will be looking to keep their national championship hopes alive while Scott Frost will look for a huge win in the Cornhuskers home conference opener.

Ohio State traveled to Nebraska in 2017 and trounced the Cornhuskers 56-14. Ohio State enters this game having won four straight against Nebraska.

Last season’s meeting nearly went the other way, however. Nebraska was 2-6 last season when it made the trip to Ohio Stadium and found itself with a 21-16 lead at halftime. The Buckeyes rallied from behind in the second half, but the Huskers twice cut Ohio State’s lead to less than a touchdown twice, but were never able to climb back on top, ultimately losing 36-31. 


 We’re not yet to October, but it would be hard to argue there’s been a Big Ten team this season that has looked better than Ohio State. Wisconsin certainly has a case to make, but the Buckeyes have been dominant through four games, winning each by a average of 44.5 points per game. New quarterback Justin Fields has looked fantastic, and he’s both thrown and rushed for a touchdown in each of Ohio State’s first four games. Running back J.K. Dobbins is No. 5 in the country with 477 rushing yards. Combine those two on offense with a defense that’s hardly yielding anni van Bronckhorst has spoken of his role with Manchester City.Van Bronckhorst spent time at the City Football Academy after his departure leading to suggestions he could be involved in Pep Guardiola’s coaching setup.He revealed that a return to maanything, and this is a very difficult Ohio State team to beat right now.

 Nebraska comes into this game off an odd performance against Illinois. On the one hand, Nebraska put 42 points on the board and had 673 yards of offense. On the other hand, the offense turned the ball over four times and let Illinois rush for 221 yards against it. This is a team that has shown yern Munich job.The 70-year-old is the overwhelming favourite to replace Niko Kovac, who was sacked on Sunday following their 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Game prediction, picks

My major concern here is Nebraska’s defense. The Cornhuskers are allowing 25.3 points per game on the season, but in two games against Power Five competition (Colorado and Illinois), they’ve allowed 72 points. That doesn’t bode well for this matchup against an Ohio State offense coming off a 76-point performance. Also, while the Nebraska offense has proven to be potent, it hasn’t faced a defense near the caliber of Ohio State’s yet. So I’m not confident that the Cornhuskers will be able to hang over 60 minutes here. I’d lay the points with the Buckeyes.

The College Football Playoff begins this week.

You didn’t see it hyped on a gushing Tuesday night reveal show. The matchups weren’t arranged five years ago and announced on a Twitter infographic with breathless acclaim.

They just organically evolved. Call them playoff play-in games. Among them:

The biggest Iron Bowl since the Kick Six.The biggest Michigan-Ohio State game since “.”The ACC’s biggest day since winning the national championship. biggest challenge since . biggest challenge since last week.

Some of them are mere tap-ins. (Hello, going to .) Some will define a legacy. (Hello, Jim Harbaugh, 1-4 against biggest rivals.) One of them will not include the Heisman Trophy frontrunner — at least at the start. ( hosting ).

If the favorites survive, they should give thanks for getting this far.

Four years ago, I was in Michigan for the game. The desk called to tell me former colleague Tony Barnhart had a family emergency. I flew from Detroit to Atlanta and drove to Auburn in the same day to catch Alabama-Auburn. Saturday marks the best Iron Bowl since that Kick Six classic.

This one could be better in terms of impact from an overall historical standpoint. could lose and still make the playoff. Gus Malzahn could win and still leave for (see below). From this point of view, Auburn is playing better than Alabama — or frankly anyone in the SEC. The Tigers are at home. Anyone who has seen the TIde play this year knows the defense has taken at least a tiny step back.

All the signs are there for another upset. Bama lost five defensive starters from 2016 and is down four linebackers this year due to injuries. Finally, Nick Saban is 0-6 in his career against Auburn teams that have won at least nine games. Auburn 31, Alabama 24 — and hopefully, this time, they’ve got enough security to keep people in the stands. 

It is widely speculated that Auburn’s coach could bolt for Arkansas, win or lose. Lose and it’s easy. Malzahn will have lost for the fourth consecutive time to Saban. Auburn fans can’t tolerate that kind of thing, even if Bama is currently in the middle of what could be called the greatest dynasty of all time.

Gus has lost his athletic director (Jay Jacobs) and, stunningly, only has a contract through the 2020 season. The biggest subtext to the Iron Bowl this week is Malzahn possibly leaving for Arkansas if he beats Bama. The money folks at Arkansas ganged up on AD Jeff Long to get rid of himas lifted the Reds in the four year since his appointment, turning them into one of the best teams in the Premier League while also steering them to Champions League glory.ESPN says the Liverpool board liked the German’s personality and that his lack. Why wouldn’t they bum rush Malzahn, Houston Nutt’s former offensive coordinator? Who’s going to be the first media wag to call Gus the “Springdale 1?”

It may be that, unless Auburn goes to the playoff, ol’ Gus is gone anyway. Fascinating.

Ohio State is like a petulant teenager. You don’t know day-to-day what mood it is going to wake up in. The Buckeyes’ defense gave up 30 percent of its yardage this season in the losses to Oklahoma and Iowa. That said, Michigan needs a Sherpa to find the end zone. We’ll see if playing at the Big House leads to big thingser Sergio Aguero admits he grew up a fan off Liverpool.And he says Michael Owen was his favourite striker.Aguero has been Manchester City’s main man for eight years, winning four Premier League titles in the process. His latest league triumph came at. The Bucks keep their playoff hopes alive with a win. Ohio State 26, Michigan 10

Dabo Swinney said there is “zero difference” between Alabama-Auburn and Clemson-South Carolina. Tell that to the Gamecocks, who were 49-point road kill (56-7) for the Tigers last year. has the fourth-toughest road to the playoff behind Alabama, Auburn and Georgia. But it’s still a tough road getting past and Miami. South Carolina finished second in the SEC East with improving markedly. Lose and the ACC title may be a consolation prize for the Tigers. Clemson 29, South Carolina 21

TCU got by last week without starter . Earlier in the week, he was “close to probable” for Baylor. This is historically an intense rivalry, but the Bears (1-10) are in Year 2 of rebuilding out of the shambles of the sexual assault scandal. The Frogs clinch a date with Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game with a win. TCU 34, Baylor 17

Miami didn’t wake up on time last week. The Canes had to come from behind with the ACC touchdown passing leader, of , throwing for four scores. Wondering how Miami will come out for a noon ET game at the day after Thanksgiving with their bellies full of turkey and the stands less than full. With a win, the Canes undefeated and keep ACC hopes alive for two playoff teams.  Miami 23, Pittsburgh 17

You can bet Georgia has been practicing for option since the spring. The Yellow Jackets have won two of the last three but haven’t won at home since 1999. A reminder: The Dawgs can’t lose again. They’ve already clinched a meeting with Auburn or Alabama. But will it be only for the SEC title? Georgia 28, Georgia Tech 23

was the difference in the second half last week against Michigan. Things would seem to be easier for Wisconsin at . The Gophers have worn down in the second half, averaging 19.8 points in the last five games. In that same timeframe, Wisconsin has allowed only 13 points on average (eight total touchdowns in five game). Pr says Andy Robertson is an invaluable member of Liverpool’s dressing room.The Scotland international has established himself as one of the world’s best left-backs over the past 18 months.And Milner says he has also had a brilliant impact on the playiessure, what pressure? P.J. Fleck got an extension this week after going 5-6 in his first season. Undefeated Wisconsin can’t trip. A Big Ten title game shot with Ohio State is guaranteed, but that’s not what the Badgers are thinking. Wisconsin 26, Minnesota 17

West Virginia was going to be testy for Oklahoma until quarterback broke his finger. Enter Mountaineer backup Chris “Chuggs” Chugunov.  The news value is watching how long sits out after grabbing his nether regions against . Next year’s No. 1 will start. Oklahoma 40, West Virginia 23

I’ve talked, written and thought about the subject for months since Summy was thrown in front of a speeding bullet train in May by his AD. Things hit a new low (for ) this week when the staff found out it is going to be fired coming off the practice field on Tuesday. “It’s shitty for it to go down like this,” .

If this is it for Texas A&M’s classy head coach, then happy trails, my friend. If the Aggies win at LSU, Sumlin will have assembled six consecutive eight-win (at least) seasons. He will also leave behind the best coaching record at the school in more than 20 years. Sad day when that gets you fired. Oh, and beware Jimbo Fisher or Chip Kelly or whoever comes next. Hope you get enough money to cushion how you may be treated when things go sour.

If upsets in the War on I-4, the Group of Five Golden Ticket (guaranteed New Year’s Six) is up for grabs. If the unranked Bulls win, suddenly they enter the picture playing in the AAC Championship Game. UCF would be eliminated … and play back-to-back games starting this week. If one team sweeps (especially Boise) to become Mountain West champions, that’s a factor … The SEC hasn’t had more than four coaching changes in any season since 1946. It could have as many as seven this silly season … Make mine turkey breast with mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries and a toast to my beloved mother-in-law, the late Mary Jane Waugh. We miss you.

Sugar Bowl score, highlights: Oklahoma rolls in dominant win over Auburn


won its 10th consecutive game, running past in a 35-19 victory boss Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to their clash with Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.Liverpool ae favourites for the clash in north London, but Klopp isn’t taking any chances against two-time Champions League winner Mourinho.”Jose Mourinho is a world- in the Sugar Bowl to finish 11-2 with a Big 12 championship to pair with this New Year’s Six bowl triumph.

Offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley was cooking, calling a great game with playing general for the Sooners’ high-octane attack. Mayfield was his usually-efficient self, throwing for 296 yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-28 passing, adding 34 rushing yards.

With 86 yards on 17 carries, became Oklahoma’s career leading rusher, passd with his players after their 4-0 thrashing by Chelsea.Everton turned in their worst performance of the Italian’s reign.And asked if he had an issue with the commitment of some of the players he said: “There are things that I can analyse with you ing Billy Sims for the historic honor. He contributed to the 524 total yards of offense, an output that was made easier by Auburn’s offensive struggles.

The first drive looked great for the Tigers, but on that drive, Auburn QB Sean White apparently broke his arm, and was later pulled in the second half for and examined. Franklin took over in the second half, but then came in and the quarterback carousel that contributed to inconsistent offense during the season again kept the Tigers running in place rather more often than they were running downhill.

Stoops’ fourth 10-plus-win season in the past five years did not come without drama. The punishment of Mixon, suspended an entire season for striking a female in the face at a bar before his freshman year, was re-examined after video of the incident was released to the public on Dec. 16. Stoops, and the Oklahoma administration, spent much of the time between then and this game defending their decisions from 2014 abnager Marcelo Bielsa does not believe that it is wise to compare his side to Arsenal.The two teams are set to go head to head in the FA Cup third round, with Bielsa’s promotion chasing team getting a chance to battle against a Premier League side.Butout what to do with the 5-star recent high school graduate facing criminal charges.

The handling of Mixon was an off-field issue but still part of the conversation as ESPN’s Brent Musberger discussed the story, . All of this came as Mixon was absolutely tremendous on the field, taking 19 carries for 91 yards and two touchdowns, and hauling in five passes for a 89 yards — all team highs.

: Mayfield was named MVP of the Sugar Bowl with his two touchdown passes and 300-plus yards of offense, but his performance also might have put in him rare air when it comes to single-season passer rating. , Mayfield’s unofficial passer rating for the season is 196.39. That tops Russell Wilson’s current FBS record of 191.78, set during his single season with Wisconsin in 2011.

Michigan RB Derrick Green out for the season


Things continue to go wrong for Michigan.

le Gunnar Solskjaer w Ondrej Duda is a target for Norwich City.Kicker says talks are now at an advanced stage over a loan to the end of the season for the midfielder.Duda is keen to leave Hertha this month and has also been linked with Fortuna Dusseldorf.However, the Canas pleased with their shootout win over AC Milan.Marcus Rashford scoring the opener in the 14th minute, before AC Milan equalised 12 minutes later, as Suso produced a driving effort that flew past David De Gea into the net. Samu Running back Derrick Green suffered a broken clavicle during Michigan’s loss to Rutgers on Saturday night, and Brady Hoke announced at his press conference Monday that Green will miss the rest of the season.

This is just more bad news in a season that’s been filled with bad news for the Wolverines.

While Green had a couple of big games against Appalachian State and Miami (Ohio) — he rushed for 307 and all three of his touchdowns in those games — he had been struggling against Power 5 opponents, as had the entire Michigan offense. That changed a bit Saturday night, though, as Green carried the ball 12 times for 74 yards before leaving the game with the injury. It was the first time all season it looked like Green and the offensive line were finding lanes to work with in the ground game, and now he’s out for the year.

Without Green, the Wolverines will turn to De’Veon Smith and Justice Hayes. Smith actually leads the team in rushing touchdownley Coman to Manchester City in part exchange for Leroy Sane.BILD says Bayern are determined to bring Sane back to Germany in 2020 – either in January or at the end of this season.And on the negotiating table will be Coman, a favourite of City boss Ps with four and has rushed for 282 yards on 47 carries. Hayes has 19 carries for 101 yards and no touchdowns.

Hopefully for the Wolverines, the success they started to find on the ground against Rutgers will continue without Green. If not, things could get even uglier than they already have been. Michigan is off to its first 0-2 start in Big Ten play in 47 years.
