Last week, a reporter jokingly asked coach Thad Matta about the impact that senior walk-on and blogger extraordinaire Mark Titus’ potentially season-ending labrum injury will have on the depth of the Buckeyes’ bench.“Well, you thought when Evan [Turner] went down things were bad,” Matta said light-heartedly. “We’re going to have to try and fight through this.”The reality of the situation regarding OSU’s bench appears a bit more serious. The team’s four starting guards, juniors Evan Turner, David Lighty and Jon Diebler, along with sophomore William Buford, average at least 32 minutes a game. Whether Matta will admit it or not, those numbers point toward potential fatigue by the end of the season.Seniors P.J. Hill and Jeremie Simmons each average more than 15 minutes a game, but those numbers are a bit inflated thanks to the playing time they received when Turner was sidelined with two broken vertebrae.In comparison, Michigan State has seven players that average at least 21 minutes a game and only one player, reigning Big Ten Player of the Year Kalin Lucas, averages over 30 minutes a game. Obviously, the Spartans possess more talent, as evidenced by their No. 5 ranking and 9-0 conference record. On the other hand, coach Tom Izzo has done a solid job balancing his players’ minutes in order to keep them fresh for the end of the season.The Buckeyes appear to lack that luxury. OSU is a guard-oriented offensive team. Their focus is using the playmaking abilities of Turner on offense, which usually results in him taking a shot or getting an open look for another one of the Buckeye guards.The big men have not played a prominent role. Junior forward Dallas Lauderdale’s offensive game revolves around tip-ins and dunks while senior forward Kyle Madsen relieves Lauderdale for short intervals and occasionally hits an open jump shot.Coming into this season, speculation abounded that two sophomores could help solve OSU’s interior woes. Seven-foot-tall center Zisis Sarikopoulos and 6-foot-9-inch forward Nikola Kecman were recruited as players with above-average offensive skills, yet both have been buried on the bench this season despite their impressive size.Before the season started, Sarikopoulos expressed confidence in his offensive abilities.“I think we are different in the way this team is set up. I know I can score on the block. I like to create action,” Sarikopoulos said. “So if I’m on the block and I’m not going to score, I can find the shooter. I can pass the ball very well.”Last week, Matta hinted that he was concerned about Sarikopoulos and Kecman coping with the physicality of Big Ten play. Nonetheless, for the second year in a row, Matta has been relying heavily on his starters. According to kenpom.com, OSU ranks 327 out of 347 NCAA Division I teams in bench minutes.In order for the Buckeyes to attain a high seed for the NCAA tournament, they will need to finish the regular season strong, unlike last season when they lost four of their last seven games before the Big Ten Tournament. That might be hard to achieve considering the major minutes OSU’s starters have been logging.
Dear Editor,With each passing day, the inherent fault lines eroding the democratic purpose of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) threaten to graduate into a devastating tsunami. In fact, the magnitude of evidence in the widely circulated public media from many disappointed stakeholders puts the rebranded image of the organisation as tantamount to that of an old-time cake shop being run with hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ money.It is clear that the undercurrents have further deepened, since the strongly-challengeable, unilateral appointment by President Granger of the Chairman, Justice (retired) James Patterson. Nothing significant has so far been done by the Chairman to remedy the problematic issues at GECOM. Rather, things seem to have gotten worse, rendering the decaying grey matter incapable of adjusting to, or overseeing, a meaningful input that would cleanse the infested cake shop operations.In essence, when appointed, Commissioners have to take to the public media to air the overwhelming internal inefficacies and dirty linen permeating GECOM. It is a clear sign that we are fast approaching breaking point!Numerous published evidence -based revelations provide a very dismal picture of the many distasteful happenings being conducted within the organisation. Under Chairman James Patterson’s watch, Chief Executive Officer Keith Lowenfield acts as a lord unto himself, and has become even more emboldened to unleash another imbued ‘Town Clerk-like’ display.It was recently reported that when asked about approaches to expending on public relations projects, Lowenfield informed GECOM’s statutory meeting that once the Finance Ministry gave the accounting officer the approval to expend funds for any purpose, the GECOM Secretariat was not required to bring the issue before the Sub-Committee or the Commission.The seriousness of this erroneous response cannot be understated. Lowenfield pretends to be not any wiser following highly prosecutable findings contained in the report of the 2017 Auditor General’s examination of GECOM’s financial activities. It is clear that the procurement mechanism is being continually abused under a created guise of so-called urgent requirements for the same activities year after year; election after election. In essence, the internally applied approaches are being deliberately manipulated to accommodate fraud and handpicked beneficiaries.In a public entity such as GECOM, properly accountable practices are enshrined in the approved procurement legislation to address procedures that must be followed in the pre-procurement cycle; the cycle, and the post- procurement cycle. Critically, procedures in the law are specific to how this firm procures in terms of mandatory compliance procedures that support accountability. Particularly, they address the tender process, including forms of tendering — whether selective, public, or special; and consider strongly the Terms of Reference for the critical activities.In the GECOM setting, these do not often change, and are repeatable, since they are often informed by the plan for the specific elections and the related budget. This column, on numerous occasions, called for release of the GECOM budget, which often seems absent, abstract or lacking, in the interest of transparency and accountability.It is therefore appalling that the Commission would entertain such responses from the CEO of the Secretariat when requests for clarification are made by Commissioners.Notably, the Chairman of the Commission and the CEO of the Secretariat had, months ago, indicated the readiness of the organisation to fulfill the rudiments of the November 12th Local Government Elections.One had expected that such confirmation would have been driven by structured planning and budgeting, approved by the Commission (including all commissioners). One had expected that the execution of the Secretariat’s plan would have been strongly monitored, supported by a structured schedule that is devoid of occurrences of fraudulent financial manipulation to benefit a few. One would have expected that the high-risk elements which undermine the required level of professionalism would have been identified, and approaches to mitigate them would have been employed.Sincerely,Neil Kumar
Hello, first explain what I mean by "no three": no qualifications, no skills, no experience. This is no three noes. The first contact with the site is about 04 years, and at that time, there are two friends that live on personal websites. Another 04 years, when it was easier to make money online. When I saw my two friends doing it every day in front of the computer, I had a lot of money to spend. I was so jealous. I really want to learn from them, but because of my personality problems, I don’t want to ask them any questions, and then they’re one or two years younger than me. I can’t even open my mouth. Therefore, learning website production is nothing. But the idea of running personal websites has been lingering in my mind.
to 2006, because too tired to work in the factory is not to earn money, business website this idea came again in front of me, sleep every day are doing….. Then quit his job and began to make the site, but because no technology, no one to advise, do not know where to start to check the internet. I graduated from junior high school, I did not graduate, I found all the information I could not understand. In the Internet cafe, I spent a lot of money on it, and spent a lot of time, but I still got nothing. I see fewer and fewer tickets in my pocket. It’s very depressing.
said that, I also want to thank my girlfriend for my support at that time, when I did not work, naturally do not make money, the Internet and eating money are given to my girlfriend. (a little shame)
thought, "if you can’t go on like this, you have to find a shortcut to earn some money to support yourself.". They began to check Wangzhuan on the Internet to find a lot, but are not appropriate for me to do (technology). Then an electronic commerce project what caught my attention, to pay 180 dollars, then pull off the assembly line, get into. This thought can also be in the forum post propaganda what you can do, the feeling from the simple (at that time did not think of is the network marketing). I added the line of QQ, he sent me a screenshot of hundreds of pieces of good income income, one day, to see my eyes…. didn’t think my girlfriend to find the money in the past, then I opened my line to a web site, and he stood on the content as like as two peas. You need to do is propaganda. Done for about a week, I only pulled to a downline, put 40 dollars, then contact on-line, let him give money, he said must be one hundred yuan, can only pay. I had a week, a line not down, I did not pull off the assembly line is connected to the people, two weeks are so time-consuming that money, and began to push down, the heart is very great.
later became GG. Set up a blog, a few articles reprinted elsewhere English articles. On GG advertising, download a brush flow software, began to contact each other. At half a month, the GG account has dozens of knife, but one day suddenly into account GG not to go. Look at the mailbox, say what it’s for, what advertisers bring about, what risks, close my account. Half.
