As we all know, that didn’t happen, as UK fell to Wisconsin in the Final Four.One fan – named Cory Eaves – waited until after the season ended to get his commemorative tattoo. Cleverly, he decided to go with “40 And Oh Well” instead, with head coach John Calipari’s face above the phrase.I casually have John Calipari’s face on my body for the rest of my life.

Kirk Herbstreit Weighs In On 2002 Ohio State Being Named “Worst” National Title Team Since 1998

first_imgkirk herbstreit looking very tan at the nfl draftThe 2002 Ohio State Buckeyes won a national title against all odds, outlasting Miami in double overtime in the Fiesta Bowl after one of the most controversial pass interference calls in college football history. This week, Buckeyes fans, who have heard for nearly two decades that they didn’t deserve the title, were dealt another blow. ESPN named 2002 Ohio State the worst national champion since the BCS era began.ESPN’s ranking comes from a combination of adjusted offensive and defensive ratings. The study finds that 2005 Texas, led by Vince Young, was the best team of the BCS and College Football Playoff era.Naturally, fans wanted to hear Kirk Herbstreit’s take on the matter, since he’s an Ohio State alum. Herbstreit does not seem to agree that the 2002 Buckeyes were the worst of the bunch.“I sure as heck don’t believe they were the worst. There’s intangibles that made this team who they were that I’m sure whatever formula they used didn’t take into account. And this teams real strength was its belief and ability to find ways to win. Also really talented roster.”Herbstreit dropped the opinion responding to a tweet from a fan on Friday.I sure as heck don’t believe they were the worst. There’s intangibles that made this team who they were that I’m sure whatever formula they used didn’t take into account. And this teams real strength was its belief and ability to find ways to win. Also really talented roster. https://t.co/xhiPhrU2JL— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) July 27, 2018Here’s what ESPN had to say about Ohio State’s 2002 team – despite ranking it last on the list.No one would label the 2002 Buckeyes dominant, despite five wins by 24 points or more and a defense that allowed only 64 points in the second half all season. Ohio State’s signature moment before the famous pass interference call in the title game was a fourth-down touchdown pass from Craig Krenzel to Michael Jenkins that gave the team a 10-6 win over a 4-5 Purdue team. Holy Buckeye, indeed. The Purdue win kicked off a November of escapes for Jim Tressel’s team. Ohio State beat unranked Illinois in overtime, then outlasted archrival Michigan 14-9 as running back Maurice Clarett returned from injury and Krenzel led a fourth-quarter touchdown drive. The defense had stars such as safety Mike Doss, lineman Will Smith and Chris Gamble, who played cornerback and receiver. Clarett, a true freshman, became the face of the offense. This was a team that simply knew how to win, style points be damned. — RittenbergOhio State will open the 2018-2019 season looking for its third national title of the BCS and College Football Playoff era.last_img read more

(Photo by Marc Serota/Getty Images)It’s still early in the 2020 recruiting process, but the Georgia Bulldogs haven’t gotten off to the same fast start as some of their SEC rivals. They’ll have a chance to catapult to the top of recruiting rankings if they can land five-star receiver Rakim Jarrett.This past Monday, Jarrett announced on his Twitter account that he would be taking a visit to Georgia next week. Such a visit would be his second in as many months.The wide receiver from Washington D.C. is already weighing offers from just about every top program in the country. Per 247Sports, he is the No. 17 overall prospect in the country, the No. 2 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 2 prospect from the District of Columbia.Jarrett has previously spoken glowingly about the Georgia campus, so the second visit could very well be the chance to make a lasting impression.UGA next week— Rak (@RakimJarrett) March 13, 2019This could be a big opportunity for Georgia, as Jarrett seems ready to make a choice. Two days ago, he hinted at an upcoming commitment.Commit coming soon..🥳— Rak (@RakimJarrett) March 12, 2019Recruiting experts are not entirely sold on the idea of Jarrett going to Georgia, though. 78-percent of the analysts that have logged 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions have him going to Ohio State instead.As it stands, Georgia has the No. 12 ranked recruiting class in the Class of 2020, per 247Sports Composite Team Rankings. However, it’s only the sixth-best class in the SEC so far.The Bulldogs currently have commitments from one five-star recruit and four four-star recruits.last_img read more

Canadian opener Rodrigo Thomas hit a quickfire 41 but Toronto’s middle-order struggled to maintain the momentum.Yuvraj Singh, who walked in at No. 4, was struggling to even put bat to ball in his first outing since retirement in June, 2019. The World Cup-winning India star faced 27-ball for his 14 before being dismissed in a bizarre manner.Yuvraj got a faint edge in the 17th over bowled by medium pacer Rizwan Cheema. However, wicketkeeper Tobias Visse fluffed a simple opportunity but the ball deflected off the keeper’s gloves to the stumps. Yuvraj’s foot was inside the crease but Yuvraj started walking off the field even before the on-field umpire’s made a decision.Playing for Toronto Nationals in opening match of Global T20 Canada #YuvrajSingh walked off despite being not out.The 37-year-old was stumped in Vancouver Knights’ bowler Rizwan Cheema’s over after wicketkeeper dropped catch on stumps.Yuvraj was still in crease as per the replays pic.twitter.com/fcKXzGwWNLebianfeatures (@ebianfeatures) July 26, 2019Yuvraj Singh’s dismissal though was a blessing in disguise for Toronto as the former batsman was struggling to keep the scoreboard moving.

The West Indies all-rounder hit 3 sixes and a couple of boundaries. South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman Heinrich Klaasen struck a 20-ball 41 as Toronto reached 159 for 5 in 20 overs.In replay, Chris Gayle-led Vancouver Knights gunned down the target in just 17.2 overs. Gayle did not get going as he was dismissed for 12 from 10 balls but Chadwick Walton and South Africa star Rassie van der Dussen hit half-centuries each to stitch a match-winning stand of 126 runs.Yuvraj gives update on back issueSpeaking after his team’s defeat in the Global T20 Canada season opener, Toronto Nationals captain Yuvraj Singh gave an update about his back issue.”It was a good game but we were never in the game. Credit to the Knights though, they played really well.

When he worked on a project with Justin Felber at the then ‘it’ stationer John L. Strong, they worked together brilliantly and once Strong folded, they decided to stay in the luxury stationery market. They bought an archive of vintage steel dyes,   brought back fonts that were no longer used, and opened their doors in 2010. “Creatively it was extremely interesting and the right customer realized that overnight,” he explained.Everything at Connor is engraved by hand in Paris, using the same techniques and craft that has been used for centuries. And Henri has not created just a paper company but a true luxury brand with not just cards, but calendars, notebooks and business cards as well as an amazing new app.With Henri’s obvious top tier in taste when it comes to his career, rest assured it relates to his closet. Read on as he tells us more about his personal style.I am probably the worst customer you can find because I am the biggest snob and I am not hiding it. I am very much anti-brand. You would never see me wearing something that flashes the brand. I want to wear either custom made or an Old Navy t-shirt.When it comes to my attire, it typically includes a custom blazer from Principe di Firenze in Florence. A fair amount of the blazers I wear are semi bespoke by Isaia. I also have suits made at Sartoria Partenopea in Naples; the eclectic classic and sportswear choices are right up my alley.For shirts – They range from every New York custom maker to Borelli. Also I like simple button down broadcloths from Brooks Brothers.Sweaters- Lora Piana cashmereTopcoats- Loro Piana to Man Ray in Milan.My shoes are made by George Cleverley in London. They are a very old brand that became famous for making shoes for the European royalty and Fred Astaire. They also make custom shoes for Ralph Lauren.Sneakers – Old Nikes, Tretorn, Superga, some in still unopened in boxes! Im just collecting and storing it, hopefully one day I will wear them all.I collect vintage tennis clothing from Vintage Fila, Ellesse, Sergio Tacchini, Australian, Adidas and Nike as well as vintage ski clothing from Ellesse, Moncler, Conte de Florence, Maser, Silvy Tricot, Nordica and Rossignol.I have a huge watch collection- vintage Patek Philippe, Rolex, Jaeger, Glashütte ( when they were made in East Germany).I also have a thing for Persol glasses which I started collecting in 1984. I have probably 50 or so frames, some still in boxes that it’s time to sell.  I love Ray Ban too. I like Tom Ford but it can be too flashy these days.It’s embarrassing to listen to myself – I am worse than a girl!The Connor iPad app is available now to download for free.

Worn Out Wednesday – Ward Williams

first_imgToday we speak with Creative Director Ward Williams about his career and personal style. I was born and raised in the Mississippi Delta. The area is famous for producing some of the most colorful artists and generally strange people in the world. Because it was a riverbed at some point in history, farming is the prevailing industry. However, the culture is as bountiful and legendary as the crops grown there. My father was a cotton farmer and my mother a school administrator. I spent a large amount of my childhood listening to my father tell stories that I still don’t entirely believe to be true. I also spent a large amount of my childhood having my grammar corrected by my mother – who is an English teacher by trade. Perhaps it was my birthright to eventually become a writer of some sort?College kept me in Mississippi and eventually I made my way up the eastern seaboard to Virginia for graduate school. The next step was New York – a place where I never had any intention of living. That was eight years ago and I’m not sure I ever have any real intention of leaving – save for possible small stints in a handful of places.My career started in advertising as a junior copywriter at Ogilvy & Mather. Since then, I’ve worked at a variety of advertising agencies both large and small. I did my own thing for a while, took some time to write for myself, and enrolled in a couple of writing courses at NYU. Currently, I’m a creative director at Momentum Worldwide working primarily on the American Express account at my agency.I joke that my family and friends don’t really understand what I do. I’m not sure that joke is really that much of a joke. I don’t blame them though. At any time I could be doing something as simple as writing a print ad. At other times, I could be working on a livestream concert and fashion show during New York Fashion Week. Just last week, I was wearing a full body suit of green lycra Zentai on a sound stage in LA with a top ranked tennis player. I don’t try to make a lot of sense out of where my job takes me, but suffice to say, it keeps things interesting. It’s fun to find interesting and creative ways to tell a brand’s story – for now, at least.Until I eventually get around to selling that book I’ve been thinking about writing.Like any good Southerner, my style is traditional southern preppy (I think that’s a thing). However, I like to mix it up with interesting pieces. You’re not going to see me in head-to-toe Brooks Brothers and Vineyard Vines.Jeans: My absolute favorite jeans are a patched six-year-old pair from Simon Spurr; I have an equally old pair of Earnest Sewn skinny jeans that I wear at least two times a week. Oh, and slim fit jeans from UK brand, Jean Machine – they’re great. Related: I own too much denim.Shirts: I am pretty hard on shirts so I was happy to discover that the Small Slimfit Oxford at Uniqlo fits me perfectly. I also have a bunch of shirts by Michael Bastian – both his regular and Gant lines.Pants: In the winter, I live in a pair of Hickey flannels. They fit great and keep me warm. In the summer, if I’m not wearing jeans, I’m probably in a bright pair of Rugby (RIP) chinos or slim Rag & Bone five pocket khakis.Suits: The suit I wear the most is by Boglioni. I have an old Jil Sander suit that I sometimes wear as a tux when I’m not wearing my proper one.Shoes: If I could, I would live in Belgian’s. I love my suede wingtips from Massimo Dutti and cordovan tassel loafers by Hickey; for rain, my LL Bean Duckboots and for snow, Diemme Boots; the rest of the time it’s Quoddy topsiders and LL Bean Signature Bluchers.Accessories: I wear an old gold and silver Rolex Datejust, my father’s signet ring, and his monogramed gold belt buckle. I just recently discovered Steven Alan’s eyewear line and it’s fantastic. My everyday glasses are a pair of rose-colored vintage clear French frames from Fabulous Fannie’s in the East Village (that sentence annoyed me too). And I love a needlepoint belt and knit ties from Michael Bastian.Outerwear: Denim Jacket by Jean Machine and my trusty Barbour; North Face and Patagonia for skiing or freak NY snowstorms.Your favorite App: Sure, Instagram and Google Maps get a lot of use on my phone but if you have a four-legged creature in your life, MyTalkingPet is endlessly amusing.Favorite piece of technology: Even with cable, I’m pretty attached to my AppleTV.Next tech purchase: I’m toying with getting a Jawbone UP bracelet, but I’m not quite prepared to face the reality of my sleep cycle – just yet.

Dyson’s new 360 Eye robot just made vacuums cool

first_imgIf you’re anything like us, you probably think something so mundane as a vacuum cleaner could never evoke that “gotta have it” feeling common with other technological wonders. However, the latest creation from the suction-obsessed mind of James Dyson proves that, when it comes to the radical future of robotic devices, anything is possible.The folks at Dyson unveiled the new smart vacuum, the 360 Eye, before a crowd of onlookers at IFA this week in Berlin, invoking nothing less than amazement. A vision that’s been 16 years in the making, the shiny silver contraption brings brains, brawn, and brilliance to the genre, making manual vacuuming (or sweeping) of any kind a thing of the past. Honestly, all we need now is a lawnmower built under the same specs, and weekend chores will be cut in half.The cool little bot sports some very impressive tech that makes it tick. On board is the same cyclonic suction engine that gives the standard Dyson its claim to fame, assuring problematic carpet parasites like fleas, bacteria, and dirt are unlikely to stick around in your shag. And perhaps even more appealing, carbon fiber bristles allow the device to sweep dust off of hard floors as well, essentially allowing you to clean your entire pad without lifting a finger.The machine rolls around on tank-like treads so it can make it’s way over almost any surface, and the great “eye” on the top, in the form of a panoramic camera, gives it a 360 degree view of its surroundings. The lens can then shoot the room in search of obstructions, and triangulate them with its on board computer to figure out where it’s going, and where it’s been. The smart mapping assures the device will tackle the entire floor, and avoid potential pitfalls that might keep it slamming into walls for hours, as can happen with some other robotic vacuums.Other futuristic features include an app so you can control the vacuum and survey its progress while away from home with your smartphone, and a high-speed digital motor that makes it the most powerful robotic vacuum on the market.The Eye 360 is currently slated for a 2015 Japanese release at present, with no stateside dates announced. Dyson also hasn’t released pricing yet, but with something this useful, does it really matter? We know what we’ll be saving up for.
