Texas Football Featured At No. 34 In Sports Illustrated’s 100 Greatest Sports Moments List

first_imgTexas players run out of the locker room on game day.chris daniels father upset with texasOn January 4, 2006, in one of college football’s most prestigious venues, Vince Young and the Texas Longhorns made sports history. UT’s national championship upset of Pete Carroll’s dynastic USC Trojans has been selected as the No. 34 best moment in sports history by Sports Illustrated. SI, on the epic win for the Longhorns:DATE / Jan 4, 2006 LOCATION / Rose Bowl | Pasadena, Calif.MOMENT / The 2006 BCS Championship featured a pair of unbeaten powerhouses, but in the end, it was Texas and QB Vince Young who stood tallest. Young, who accounted for a record 467 yards of offense, rushed in the game-winning score with 19 seconds remaining to lift the Longhorns over the USC Trojans 41-38. IMPACT / Players from this instant classic dominated the NFL draft, with four of them going in the top 10 (Young went No. 3). An NCAA investigation would eventually conclude USC’s Reggie Bush received illegal benefits while at the school, causing the Trojan to vacate their 12 wins from that season.Texas is one of eight college football moments included in SI’s Top 100 list. Only “The Play” from the 1982 Cal-Stanford game edges it out from the sport. We can’t argue with that. Vince Young’s performance was unforgettable.For the full list, click here.[Sports Illustrated]More: The 10 CFB Teams That Could Go Undefeated In 2016 >>>last_img read more

Former TCI Premier calls for demonstration and resignations

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, August 2, 2017 – Providenciales – Former Premier Michael Misick is the latest to issue a media statement about the escalating violent crime which is threatening the TCIs, safe destination reputation and says,  “the British could care less about what is happening here but just want to hang on to us for the strategic importance of having prime real estate 500 miles away from the US.”    The comment is followed by another demand, by Misick for the Police Commissioner to resign and for him to be replaced by a Turks and Caicos Islander.Michael Misick believes it is wrong for the top three police officers of the islands to all be foreign and said the current administration, led by Sharlene Robinson is not strong or assertive enough, he says.   “Our country is going through the worst crisis we have ever gone through, one that if not contained immediately will cost us our economy and livelihood.”In the meanwhile, the leader, referring to Premier Robinson is nowhere to be found.   Michael Misick also believes the public should have been demonstrating and demanding for Governor, Premier and Commissioner to resign.    The former premier, who is on trial for alleged corruption also bemoans the cost of the trial, which he contends is senseless.  He said the price tag is $2M per month of public funds and so far, spent is $100M for “the prosecution is getting rich on the backs of our country and its outstanding, upstanding, law abiding citizens.”Misick said the money would be better used on CCTV, boats, planes, helicopters and other equipment to fight crime.   The 2017 election candidate is calling for a march to end the talk and take action to take the country back from the British, the gunmen, the illegal immigrants and from the Grace Bay Boys.#MagneticMediaNews#Misickcallsfordemonstrationsandresignations Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #Misickcallsfordemonstrationsandresignationslast_img read more
