He’s most comfortable when reclined and plans to fly to ULL next week.— Stephen Bailey (@Stephen_Bailey1) August 31, 2019In some ways, his dedication to the team is admirable, but you have to wonder if this is all being handled the right way. Hugh Freeze delivers his post-game press conference from his bed after Syracuse beat Liberty.TwitterThose who tuned into No. 22 Syracuse’s game on the road at Liberty on ESPN+ were treated to maybe the most bizarre secondary storyline of the young college football season, with Hugh Freeze coaching from a bed in the coaches box.Just two weeks before his first game as head coach at Liberty, Freeze came down with a life-threatening staph infection. Luckily, he is on the mend, but he still has weeks left in his recovery.Rather than miss the game completely, Freeze went with what can only be described as a unique coaching situation, as he watched the game laying on his back. He could not make his way to the locker room at any point, so he only had a few opportunities to talk to his team at all.Behind a dominant defensive line performance, Syracuse won the game 24-0. Obviously, Freeze could not deliver a typical post-game press conference.last_img read more

Ktaka logjam Speaker turns down HDK request

first_imgNEW DELHI/BENGALURU: The Karnataka assembly was thrown into disarray as the Speaker turned down Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy’s request for more time before the trust vote and asked the MPs to keep their speeches short. Amid huge slogan shouting, the house was adjourned temporarily and both the Chief Minister and Congress’s Siddaramaiah left. The slogan-shouting continued even after it reconvened and the exasperated Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar was heard saying that they could continue till “10 pm, 11 pm”. The BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa said he was ready to “wait till midnight if need be”. The coalition has been asked to prove majority after its 16 MPs resigned and two independents withdrew support.

The coalition has accused the BJP of trying to wean away MPs to unseat the government. There were reports that the Speaker had asked the rebel MPs of the Congress-Janata Dal-Secular alliance to be present in the assembly by 6 pm. The lawmakers, who have stationed themselves at a Mumbai hotel, say they will not attend the assembly under any circumstances.

On Friday, no trust vote took place despite two deadlines from Governor Vajubhai Vala. The house was adjourned after marathon speeches by Kumaraswamy and a few other coalition leaders. Two Independent legislators who have withdrawn support to the Congress-JDS government urged the Supreme Court to order a floor test. The court may take up their petition Tuesday. Senior minister and Karnataka Congress troubleshooter DK Shivakumar claimed HD Kumaraswamy has told the Congress that it can appoint any leader of its choice as Chief Minister to save the coalition. There was, however, no confirmation from the JDS that it has made such a proposal though there were reports earlier that such a suggestion by HD Kumaraswamy was shot down by his father and JDS chief HD Deve Gowda. HD Kumaraswamy and the Congress had moved the Supreme Court on Friday, accusing the governor of interfering with the assembly proceedings when the debate on the trust vote was underway and sought clarification on its July 17 order, which they said, stopped them from issuing a whip to the legislators.last_img read more
