(Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images)Tonight, Clemson is putting an absolute beatdown on Alabama the likes of which we haven’t seen under Nick Saban.After three quarters, the Tigers lead 44-16. What we are witnessing tonight in Santa Clara is stunning.Are we also witnessing the end of Alabama’s stranglehold on college football? Well, at least one Power Five assistant apparently thinks so.The Athletic’s Nicole Auerbach shared a text message she received from an anonymous college defensive coordinator. In it, he called tonight, the “beginning of the end of the dynasty.”Text from a P5 defensive coordinator: “Beginning of the end of the dynasty”— Nicole Auerbach (@NicoleAuerbach) January 8, 2019Now, this game has been eye-opening, but it certainly isn’t the death of Alabama. The Tide is still going to be absolutely loaded next year and you know Saban is going to be extra motivated after this loss.But, is the dynasty cracking? Well, this result certainly makes Alabama seem human, but remember, Clemson is the only team to beat the Tide in a national title game. Georgia came close, but couldn’t get the job done.The dynasty just had a major dent put in it. We’ll have to wait and see how bad the longterm destruction is though.last_img

first_imgBobby Petrino calls an inexplicable timeout vs. Florida State.YouTubeIf you’re like us, you’re still absolutely baffled regarding what happened at the end of the Louisville vs. Auburn game in Atlanta. For those who missed it, Cardinals head coach Bobby Petrino called his team’s final timeout with 52 seconds to play, despite Auburn having just been charged with a holding penalty that negated a first down. Here’s video:Well, Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt has the best explanation we’ve seen. Basically, because the run went for a first down, Louisville was forced to accept the holding penalty. Because the penalty was a live-ball foul, the play clock, by rule, was set to 25 seconds, and was to be started on the referee’s signal. By that logic, Petrino made a mistake calling timeout, as only 25 seconds, not 40, would have run off of the clock. Instead, because of the timeout, Auburn ran its third down play, and the play clock then reset at 40 seconds. As Klatt notes, it’s not as huge a mistake as originally thought. But Louisville would have gotten the ball back.To clarify the end of Louisville game…run play went for first down, but holding was called and Louisville had to accept the penalty….— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 5, 2015clock was going to start on the ready for play with 25 second play clock…would have taken the game clock down to around 24 seconds….— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 5, 2015Auburn would have had to punt with 24 seconds left and Louisville would have had their timeout left…thats why Petrino said “I screwed up”— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 5, 2015by taking the timeout before the third down then the play clock after the play was 40 seconds leaving inside of 5 seconds for 4th down— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 5, 2015confusion was surrounding officials announcement that their wasn’t 10 second runoff which applies only to penalties that prevent the snap…— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 5, 2015or intentional grounding and illegal forward passes…holding does not create a 10 second runoff situation…SO, it was ill-advised to take— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 5, 2015the TO but it was not egregious— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 5, 2015It’s certainly a confusing rule, and perhaps one that should be looked at. Either way, the confusion cost Louisville this afternoon.last_img

However, the order did not speak anything about the National Statistical Commission (NSC), which was overseeing statistical works in India. The government had set up the NSC through a resolution on June 1, 2005. The setting up of the NSC followed the decision of the Union Cabinet to accept the recommendations of the Rangarajan Commission, which reviewed the Indian Statistical System in 2001. The NSC was constituted on July 12, 2006 with a mandate to evolve policies, priorities and standards in statistical matters. The NSC has four Members besides a Chairperson, each having specialization and experience in specified statistical fields.last_img
