Colin Cowherd Made A Bold Claim About Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins

first_imgColin Cowherd and Joel Klatt talk Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State vs. Penn State.FOX Sports 1Dwayne Haskins has been spectacular so far this season for Ohio State football. The quarterback has led the Buckeyes to a 4-0 start, and has brought a new dimension to the offense.Through the four games, Haskins is 87-for-115 for 1,194 yards, 16 touchdowns, and one interception. He’s thrown for 300 yards in three of four games, and five touchdowns in two separate games.The quarterback whose job he inherited, J.T. Barrett, was a great four-year starter for the Buckeyes. Urban Meyer has had numerous other great quarterbacks as well, including Braxton Miller at Ohio State, Tim Tebow at Florida, and Alex Smith at Utah.It is early in his tenure, but Colin Cowherd thinks Dwayne Haskins may be the best quarterback Urban Meyer has ever had.He is focused on NFL potential, but considering Alex Smith’s lengthy career, which seems to be improving over the last few seasons.Cowherd spoke to Joel Klatt about Ohio State at Penn State, and Haskins specifically:”This is the best QB talent Urban Meyer has ever had, including Alex Smith… this kid’s an NFL QB.”@ColinCowherd on Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins pic.twitter.com/iejcuZjKnP— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) September 26, 2018From the clip:“Klatt: You gotta deal with Dwayne Haskins. This Ohio State offense is one of the best Ohio State offenses I’ve seen in a long time.”Cowherd: This is the best quarterback talent Urban Meyer’s ever had, including Alex Smith. This kid’s the best talent he’s ever had. J.T. Barrett, I loved. Chris Leak at Florida. These are good guys, college guys. This kid’s an NFL quarterback. He’ll play on Sundays.Klatt: Pure quarterback acumen, he’s the best Meyer’s ever had, and that includes Tebow. And I think Tebow was a great competitor, and a great college football player, but this kid has immense talent.Cowherd: This kid’s good enough to face Saban and beat him. He’s an NFL thrower. You can’t be a system pocket guy. This kid could beat Nick Saban.”First, he has to beat Trace McSorley and Penn State. If Haskins pulls that off, Ohio State is one big step towards another College Football Playoff appearance, and a possible rematch with Nick Saban and Alabama.last_img read more

Vinod Rai on ICC vs Dhoni: Believe in conforming to rules of the game

first_img India Today Web Desk New DelhiJune 7, 2019UPDATED: June 7, 2019 20:39 IST MS Dhoni celebrates with teammates (Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSThe controvery surrounding MS Dhoni’s gloves refuses to die downBCCI has written a letter to ICC explaining the situationVinod Rai said that the BCCI believes in conforming to ICC norms and rulesThe controversy surrounding Indian wicket-keeper MS Dhoni donning an Indian army insignia on his gloves during India’s opening match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, doesn’t seem to be dying down. In the latest news, BCCI Committee of Administrators (CoA) Chairman Vinod Rai today (June 7) told reporters that the Board will conform to the ICC norms regarding on-field attire.Rai also stated that the BCCI has written a letter to the world body stating that Dhoni’s ‘Balidan’ badge doesn’t break any of ICC’s rules but reiterated his faith in the latter saying that if required, BCCI will seek permission as they did earlier this year when Team India sported military caps in an ODI against Australia.”We are convinced that the ICC rules say that any insignia worn by the players should not have any religious, military or commercial significance and it should conform to the ICC rules. In this particular case, that insignia has none of those connotations. So we’re going to tell the ICC that it need not be removed but in any case, if they feel we’ll take permission from ICC like we had done when the team wore camouflage caps in Ranchi because we believe in conforming to norms of the game,” said Vinod Rai.Rai clarified that the letter was sent in the morning of June 6 and he is waiting for ICC’s response before taking further action.”We have already sent the request for ICC permission today morning saying that if you people feel that permission is required, we’ll seek it,” said Rai.advertisementOn the matter of whether the CoA or BCCI had a word with the legendary wicket-keeper, Rai replied in the negative,, saying “CoA has not spoken with Dhoni”.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Rain forces India to cancel practice ahead of Australia clashAlso Read | MS Dhoni adamant on army badge but ICC unlikely to change stance: SourcesFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
