Guest Post: At NDSU, It’s Win At All Costs

207745_10151412799479532_981404089_n

Now that everyone is happy that the Bison won their national championship, I wonder if anyone has taken away a lesson from the victory.

The lesson I have learned is that it appears NDSU football coach Craigh Bohl believes in the win at all costs school of coaching. He has taught his players that as long as they perform on the field, they can get away with anything off the field. Disagree with me? Let’s look at the facts.

Last year, linebacker Brandon Jemison was dismissed from the team due to a criminal charge. Jemison had been a starter at one time but at the time of the incident he was injured and had not been playing. In 2010, two other non-starting players were dismissed from the team because of a shoplifting charge. Both players were reserve players, not starters.

During the 2012 season, one player was arrested for underage drinking and resisting arrest. He was not disciplined by the university.

And probably worst of all, during this season, eight players were arrested and charged with election fraud. They took the time to sit down and enter over 24,000 fraudulent signatures on an initiated measure petition. A calculated and fraudulent act. But because at least four of the players were starters, none were disciplined by the university.

During this same season, several members of the NDSU softball program were suspended because of their participation in an underage drinking party. But it’s OK to suspend them. After all, they’re only softball players and that program doesn’t pay any bills at the university.

So yes, the Bison got their national championship. Undoubtedly, most of the players will receive a diploma from North Dakota State University. Congratulations to them all. But what will they have really learned from their time at the university?

My guess is that like so many other star athletes who’ve come before them, they will have learned that as long as they can perform on the field, they don’t have to be law abiding responsible adults off the field.

    Del Bosque happy to have options

    Agen Bola indo11.com reported, Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque is
    pleased to have so many options ahead of his side’s clash against Nigeria on
    Sunday.

    Del Bosque made several changes after Spain’s
    2-1 win over Uruguay, and it made no difference to their form as they thrashed
    Tahiti 10-0 at the Confederations Cup.

    Spain are expected to revert to the team
    which beat Uruguay, but Victor Valdes’ return in goals is the only change Del
    Bosque confirmed on Saturday.

    He said having so many options was good for
    his squad, who need at least a draw to confirm their spot in the semi-finals.

    “Well, there will be few changes with the
    last match, of course. For example, Victor Valdes will be the goalkeeper,” Del
    Bosque said.

    “A part from that, the rest of the players
    will be more or less like in the first match, but we have a lot of alternatives
    and possibilities.

    “In one hand that is a problem for us, but in
    the other hand is also an opportunity to be able to choose between that many
    players.”asreported byIndo Eleven.

    If Spain finish top of Group B – as is
    expected – they will face Italy in the semi-finals and avoid a clash against
    hosts Brazil.

    Del Bosque said he had been impressed by
    Brazil, particularly their attacking play.

    we haven’t entered the transfer window yet, so I cannot talk much
    about it,” Nainggolan told asreported byIndo Eleven.

    “I’m still a Cagliari player, whether I will
    stay or not depends on the club’s vision for the future. If Cagliari have a
    good plan for my career, of course I will stay.

    “The situation is uncertain and everything
    can happen but I have to consider my future career as well.

    “Honestly, Southampton gave me the biggest
    offer at the moment among the other clubs but I don’t play football for money.
    My priority is looking for a brighter future for my career and Southampton is
    my last choice.

    “We will see later, it’s no problem for me to
    move to England for the sake of my career.”

    Nainggolan also revealed that he nearly
    signed for Juventus last year, and that he would love to play for Barcelona at
    one stage of his career.

Gol semata wayang MU dihasilkan oleh pemain pengganti, Danny Welbeck.

    Tanpa Wayne Rooney dan Robin van Persie, MU masih kesulitan membongkar pertahanan The Canaries. Lini serangan MU diisi oleh Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa, Ryan Giggs, dan Javier Hernandez. Pada menit ke-38, Norwich justru kembali memperoleh peluang. Sayangnya, kesempatan dari Hoolahan lagi-lagi harus gagal mengoyak jala MU. Babak pertama berakhir imbang 0-0.

    Memasuki babak kedua, Manajer David Moyes memainkan Welbeck dan menarik keluar Giggs. Masuknya Welbeck membuat serangan MU sedikit lebih hidup. Pada menit ke-57, Welbeck memberikan bukti. Aksi individunya sempat dihentikan sapuan Ryan Bennett. Namun, bola malah balik membentur Welbeck dan mengarah kepada Hernandez. Namun, Hernandez ternyata tak siap menerima bola tersebut.

    Berita yang dilangsir oleh Agen Judi terpopuler indo11.com , Beruntung bagi Welbeck, bola memantul dari Hernandez dan kembali mengarah kepadanya. Welbeck tinggal berhadapan dengan Ruddy.

MU pun membawa pulang tiga poin. Kemenangan itu membawa MU kini naik ke urutan enam Premier League dengan 34 poin dari 19 pertandingan.

    Evra: Kami Bisa Juara seperti Chelsea

    Berita terbaru dan terkini bola Soccer dari Agen Bola Indo11 – Bek kiri Manchester United, Patrice Evra, percaya bahwa keadaan yang dialami Chelsea di tahun 2012, juga bisa terjadi pada klubnya saat ini yang masih berpeluang menjuarai Liga Champions.

    “Saya menyimpan pola pikir itu dalam pikiran saya. Saya tidak mengatakan kita akan melakukan hal yang sama tapi kadang-kadang Anda harus positif. Jadi, mengapa tidak? Anda harus percaya,” Evra menimpali.

    Selain itu, keadaan terbalik juga dirasakan United dan Bayern di pertandingan terakhir di liga masing-masing. The Red Devils mampu menang besar dengan skor 4-0 dari Newcastle United, sementara The Bavarians harus rela rekor tak terkalahkannya patah dari tangan Augsburg

    “Saya pikir itu bukan hasil yang baik, tapi itu bukan hasil yang buruk karena mereka mencetak gol tandang. Saya yakin kami bisa mencetak gol tandang di Munich. Tim ini percaya diri dan ketika Anda bermain untuk Manchester United Anda harus percaya diri, bahkan ketika kadang-kadang Anda memiliki waktu yang sulit sekalipun,” tegas Evra.
