state level, making it binding on the BCCI to implement them. T from corse178's blog

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Adidas Rickard Rakell Jersey . -- No. 23?Florida?likely will be without quarterback Luke Del Rio against No. 15?Tennessee next weekend.?Del Rio injured his left knee in a 32-0 victory against North Texas on Saturday night, a huge setback for the Gators and their championship hopes.It doesnt look great, so well do whatever, said coach Jim McElwain, adding that former Purdue starter Austin Appleby would be the next guy up. Somebody else will play, and well get some guys ready and move forward and get ready to go play next week.Defensive lineman Joshua Wheeler hit Del Rio low at the end of an incomplete pass late in the third quarter, drawing a personal-foul penalty. Trainers and McElwain rushed to the field as Del Rio ripped off his helmet. Del Rio eventually got up and walked to the locker room without assistance.But that was hardly the end of it for Florida (3-0).McElwain, who initially believed Wheelers hit was dirty, started yelling at the North Texas (1-2) sideline and had to be restrained by officials and then his players.I obviously took that low hit on Luke awful personal, McElwain said. Im sure his guy was just scrambling trying to make a play, but I really care about these players. I care about them in more ways than just football players, and when you see something like that, its my responsibility when their parents arent here to be their parents.I care about these kids. Theyre mine. I see something like that, it aint right.Both teams responded to McElwains tirade by stepping onto the field and moving toward the hashmarks.On the next play, Florida guard Martez Ivey was ejected for grabbing linebacker Fred Scott by the face mask during a run. Ivey will not be suspended for the first half of next weeks game against the Volunteers.Del Rio completed 14 of 25 passes for 186 yards with an interception.The injury overshadowed a dominant performance by Floridas defense, which allowed a school-record 53 yards on 50 plays. The previous mark was 59 yards allowed against Western Carolina in 2006. Adidas Patrick Eaves Jersey . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Cheap Anaheim Ducks Jerseys . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. The BCCI fears its daily operations might come to a standstill if the Lodha Committee does not respond immediately to an email sent by board secretary Ajay Shirke last week seeking directions from the committee on how to proceed in the wake of the October 21 Supreme Court order.Without the committees consent, the BCCI cannot take important decisions that include: signing of the memorandum of understanding with the ECB for the bilateral series starting on November 9, setting a new date for the IPL media rights tender which was postponed last Tuesday, and determining the threshold value for any financial transaction of the board relating to future contracts (the Lodha Committee was asked by the Supreme Court to set the threshold value, and all contracts in excess of that amount would need the committees approval).In its interim orders, passed on October 17 and then 21, the court had categorically put clamps on the BCCI releasing any funds to the states unless they submitted an affidavit saying they would adopt all the recommendations of the Lodha Committee. The court had also asked the committee to appoint an auditor, who would oversee all the contracts the BCCI had got into since the July 18 order which made it mandatory for both BCCI and the state associations to subscribe to the committees recommendations.Despite the BCCI raising this matter of the email now, it should be aware that the committee had already made it clear last week that the ball is in fact in the boards court. The committee had written to Shirke on October 24 saying that BCCI president Anurag Thakur needs to give an undertaking on behalf of the BCCI to unreservedly comply with the courts October 21 order. The BCCI had also asked both Shrike and Thakur to meet to the committee within two weeks from the date of the order. The board has been quiet on that front, as to whether Thakur would submit the affidavit and whether he and Shirke will be meeting the committee this week.We sent the letter detailing a lot of day-to-day stuff we need to do. If you dont get a clarification quickly the operations can come to a standstill, a senior BCCI official said. Since the court has appointed the committee as the custodian, we have asked it to advise us or take the decisions [itself].The committee had not responded till Monday evening, the official said. No one from the committee was available for a comment. An explanation offered by RM Lodha, the chairman of the committee, in the past was that the courts orders have never come in the way of all the existing contracts the BCCI has entered into, neither have they disrupted the various match schedules of the board.The BCCI official did not agree with that viewpoint in this instance. He said despite the longstanding courtroom battles, the BCCIs daily operations were never disrupted till the October 21 court order. Now when you stop all contracts, then our day-to-day commercial contracts comes to a halt. For everything we have to take reference from them.According to the official, a pressing concern was the releasing of funds to all the state associations that will be hosting the England series as well as the ongoing the Ranji Trophy and age-group tournaments. England begin their five-Test series in Rajkot on November 9. They will then return post-Christmas for a limited-overs series. In the new year, India play a one-off Test against Banngladesh and a four-Test series against Australian in February-March. Cheap Ducks Jerseys. The order says every contract has to be monitored and there has to be an auditor. It also does not allow us to give any hosting fee to any of the states. Now with the England and Australia series coming up, we dont know what to do. We need the permission for that, the board official said.The official said another immediate priority for the board is preparing for next years IPL. There are numerous nuts and bolts that need to be kept ready: grounds, taking over stadiums, merchandising, team hotels, airlines, hospitality. These all need contracts. In the absence of an auditor, how do we proceed? And we dont know what amount we can enter or not.The BCCI is anxious not just about the present, but also about the future. A handful of important contracts need to be signed in the next year, the board official pointed out.The first is the IPL media rights tender. After that the BCCI has to sort the India title shirt contract, which currently with Star till next March. The official said that contract needs to be finalised by end of December as it would take few months for the new designs and logos, if any, to be printed on the new jerseys. On March 31, the IPL title rights, owned by Vivo currently, will be up for renewal.The official said two other important tenders the BCCI will need to negotiate by mid-next year are the IPL management contract with IMG and the bilateral media rights for international series for the new cycle commencing from 2018. Each tender takes minimum of three months. So we have five major tenders one after the other. So we need clarification now.The official said Shirke had listed all these details in the email to the committee. He said without a timetable in place, things could slide. Doing things last-minute gives BCCI a bad name. The BCCI has very large operations. There are many domestic tournaments taking place simultaneously. Big international series are coming up. IPL is coming up. Your business has to go on, right?Despite BCCIs apprehensions, some of the state associations like Saurashtra Cricket Association, Andhra Pradesh Cricket Association and Tamil Nadu Cricket Association have stated they have enough funds to host the Test matches assigned to them by the board. Rajkot and Visakhapatnam will host the first and second Tests of the England series, which will end at Chepauk in Chennai in December.The whole episode concerning the Indian board and the Lodha Committee stems from the IPL 2013 fixing scandal. The court had initially appointed the Lodha Committee to determine appropriate punishments for those involved, and propose changes to the BCCIs functioning to ensure best practices. In July the court accepted the majority of the committees recommendations, covering wide-ranging aspects of Indian cricket at the central and state level, making it binding on the BCCI to implement them. The BCCI has since questioned the benefits of some of these reforms - particularly the one state, one vote policy, the age cap on board officials, and the cap and cooling off periods on their terms in office - and missed some deadlines for their implementation, prompting the committee and the court to pursue the matter further. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
