Black Stars Farewell Match: Stars technical team embraces initiative

first_imgEven before the month of the activity sets in, many Ghanaians have given thumbs up to the organizers of the first ever Black Stars Farewell Match with the latest being the entire technical team of the Black Stars.The Black Stars will play against their local counterparts in an exhibition match slated for the 23rd of May 2014 at the Accra sports stadium. The match which is being organized by Primeval Media is in line with the Ghana Football Association’s aim of giving the local fans the opportunity to see their great stars one last time before they enplane to Brazil.Coach Kwesi Appiah believes that the Black Stars Farewell Match will go a long way to boost the morale of his charges ahead of the World Cup adding that all must embrace it to make it a success.“The first time I heard it, I wasn’t too sure what it was, but after getting the full details I realized its importance and had no choice but to give my consent as the head coach. It’s a good thing we are about to do, and I think the whole nation must embrace it to make it a success”.Appiah sees more positives in the Farewell Match especially since some of the best players on the local scene will be showcasing their talent in front of the entire nation.“And I hear the team will be playing against their local counterparts and that for me is good. I keep saying that the Black Stars doors are always open to any Ghanaian footballer all over the world and for me I see this as an opportunity to see the performance of some local player who might be worthy of future call ups”, Appiah added. On his part the Team Manager of the Stars, Nii Sabhan Quaye said, if properly organized, it will serve as a yard stick for future sporting events even to the other national teams.“We are all waiting to see how it will go, because we haven’t seen or heard anything like this before in this country. If all goes well (which I pray it does), then I believe the other national teams will also have the same treatment even before they enplane for major international tournaments. It’s a good initiative, it’s going to be like a fan fair and I personally like it”, he concluded.last_img read more

Why each College Football Playoff team will (or won’t) win a national championship

first_imgThe College Football Playoff field is set.  No. 1 LSU (13-0) will play No. 4 Oklahoma (12-1) in the Peach Bowl and No. 2 Ohio State (13-0) will meet No. 3 Clemson (13-0) in the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 28. Oklahoma  Why it will win: The Sooners are the one-loss team playing with house money this year. If this is a Playoff that endorses shootouts, then Oklahoma should feel comfortable. Jalen Hurts presents a matchup issue with his legs, and he will get the ball to CeeDee Lamb (1,035 yards, 14 touchdowns) and Charleston Rambo (711 yards, five touchdowns) on the perimeter. Perhaps a hot start can make LSU uncomfortable and Lincoln Riley can finally knock off an SEC team in the semifinals after losses to Georgia and Alabama the past two seasons. From there, Oklahoma would take its best swing against Ohio State or Clemson as it attempts to win its first national championship since 2000.  HOOVER: OU defense’s redemption leaves Sooners looking CFP-worthyWhy it won’t: The Sooners’ defense has improved from last year, but it still allowed the most points (24.5 per game) among the four Playoff teams. Defensive coordinator Alex Grinch has a problem with LSU’s receivers, and he will have to find a way to generate a pass rush against Burrow. That won’t be easy. OU will also be playing in SEC country in Atlanta. It cannot afford to turn the ball over, something that has been a trouble spot this year. The Sooners ranked 110th in the FBS with a minus-7 turnover margin. That could be the difference against the Tigers. PLAYOFF INFO: Times, TV, locations for CFP semifinals This year’s Playoff, the sixth in its history, is wide-open; all four teams have a chance to win it. Each one ranks in the top five nationally in total offense and points per game.SN looks at why each school will win the title — and why it won’t: LSU  Why it will win: The Tigers’ offense has been almost unstoppable. Joe Burrow is going to win the Heisman Trophy, and he can spread the ball to the receiving trio of Ja’Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson and Terrace Marshall Jr. with remarkable efficiency. The Tigers have the best red-zone offense of the playoff field. They have scored 50 touchdowns and kicked 13 field goals in 65 trips. That conversion rate will continue against Oklahoma and in the CFP championship game, which will be in their backyard in New Orleans. Head coach Ed Orgeron did not seem too concerned about where the Tigers would play or where they would be seeded. Maybe that’s because he knows he has the best team.  BENDER: Burrow makes case as CFP’s most dangerous QBWhy it won’t: The Tigers’ defense allowed 21.2 points per game and leaked against the run at times this season. The secondary is solid around Derek Stingley Jr. and Grant Delpit, but there is danger anytime a team engages in a shootout with Oklahoma, Clemson or Ohio State. Passing game coordinator Joe Brady is an excellent bet to win the Broyles Award as the nation’s best assistant, but will he be a head coach somewhere else before the Playoff starts? Clemson and Ohio State have been better at generating turnovers than LSU, too.  Ohio State  Why it will win: The Buckeyes have played with an edge all season under first-year coach Ryan Day, and this team seems ready to show it belongs back on the Playoff stage. The matchup with Clemson — which beat Ohio State 31-0 in the 2016 Fiesta Bowl CFP semifinal — is fitting. The Buckeyes have the best rushing attack in the Playoff; one that averages 272.1 yards per game. Justin Fields and J.K. Dobbins are a dynamic duo. Fields also has passed for 40 touchdowns, to just one interception. Ohio State has the best defensive player in the country in Chase Young, who leads the FBS with 16.5 sacks. It has the best red-zone defense in this Playoff, too. Depth on the defensive line always counts in the heavyweight matchups, and these Buckeyes have it.  DeCOURCY: Judge Ohio State on entire season, not just Big Ten comebackWhy it won’t: The Buckeyes did not play their best game against Penn State, Michigan or Wisconsin. All three teams found ways to move the ball, and they don’t have the skill-position talent or quarterback play Ohio State will see from Clemson or the winner of LSU vs. Oklahoma. The Buckeyes’ secondary will need to heal before the Playoff. Clemson will not be intimidated by Ohio State — the Tigers have beaten the Buckeyes in the postseason twice this decade. Day has not lost yet as head coach, but Playoff challenges are bigger than those in the Big Ten. Clemson   Why it will win: The Tigers have won 28 games in a row and have the most experience on the big stage. Coach Dabo Swinney lives for these moments, and he has been able to play the disrespect card with a roster that includes Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne and Tee Higgins on offense and Isaiah Simmons and Tanner Muse on defense. The Tigers allowed the fewest first downs and picked up the third-most first downs in the FBS this season. They play complementary football better than any other team, but their success will come down to Lawrence. The sophomore quarterback is 24-0 as a starter, and he has thrown 20 TDs to no interceptions over the Tigers’ last six games.MORE: Swinney responds to Finebaum’s barbWhy it won’t: Clemson has not seen competition this season that’s even close to what it will face in the Playoff. That is, in part, a knock on the ACC. It will be interesting to see what happens if Lawrence commits early turnovers against the Buckeyes. The Tigers have the lowest team completion percentage of the bunch, and a few three-and-outs could be the difference in the game. Ohio State is out to prove itself after that 31-0 loss in 2016; how will the Tigers respond?  last_img read more
