Rabat – President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has finally spoken about Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in a speech that signals he is looking beyond the murder towards how the incident can benefit Turkey.President Erdogan spoke at noon today at the Turkish parliament, after announcing yesterday that he would tell the “full naked truth” about the Khashoggi murder case. Throughout his address, the Turkish strongman confirmed many of the suspicions that the international community has been raising since Jamal Khashoggi, a dissident Saudi journalist, mysteriously disappeared. The US resident and columnist for the Washington Post was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. Read Also: Erdogan: Khashoggi Murder Suspects Should be Tried in IstanbulErdogan, even if mildly, kept the promise of saying “something different” from the narrative that Riyadh has been pushing forward since admitting on Friday that Khashoggi died “accidentally” in a “fist fight” inside the consulate.“Khashoggi’s death is an international issue—and one that Turkey will pursue,” the Turkish president announced at the outset of his public address.That the “gruesome murder” of Khashoggi took place inside the Saudi consulate, technically Saudi territory, should not keep the world from asking questions, Erdogan said. “Why was the 15-man Saudi team in Turkey? On whose orders? Why was the consulate not opened to investigators immediately? Why were so many different statements given by the Saudis? Who is the local collaborator who disposed of Khashoggi’s body?” Erdogan asked. Saudi Arabia, he stressed, “must answer all these questions.”Erdogan’s only demands? That Turkey lead the investigation into the build-up to the murder. He also sought the participation of other countries in the still unexposed larger plot at play to ensure that all “those involved are held accountable.”During the two weeks that Saudi Arabia strenuously denied Khashoggi had been murdered inside the consulate, President Erdogan’s silence was conspicuous. Instead he chose to let the Turkish media pour out leaks that challenged Saudi Arabia’s numerous shaky claims.Read Also: Sources: Jamal Khashoggi’s Remains Found at Saudi Consul General’s HouseAfter Saudi Arabia ditched its narrative and developments led to the de facto diplomatic ostracizing of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS), Erdogan knew he had the world’s ears. And so Erdogan finally took the stage to finally give ‘presidential’ validation to some of the stories that the Turkish press has clung to in the last two weeks.Why so diplomatic?For all the attention he elicited, however, President Erdogan fell somewhat short on the highest expectation of Middle East observers: Revealing the tape recordings of the murder.When Erdogan said on Monday that he would deliver the “full naked truth” of the premeditated murder, many had hoped that the Turkish leader was referring to the alleged audio and video recordings of the murder that MIT, the Turkish National Intelligence Agency, claims to have.Instead, Erdogan diplomatically withheld the most damning proof against Saudi Arabia’s claims of Crown Prince MBS’s innocence. At the same time, he clearly suggested that Khashoggi’s death was a political murder condoned and ordered by senior leadership in the House of Sauds.Read Also: Morocco’s Prince Moulay Hicham Condemns Murder of Jamal KhashoggiSurprisingly—Erdogan’s animus against MBS is no secret—the Turkish leader refrained from naming names. He espoused a slightly brotherly tone when analysts had expected an accusatory and defying rhetoric. “I do not doubt the sincerity of King Salman. That being said, an independent investigation needs to be carried out. This is a political killing,” he said. The implication of Erdogan’s not naming MBS, many Middle East observers have said, is that the Turkish leader does have damning evidence against MBS, as consistently claimed by MIT agents. But, they suggest, President Erdogan is waiting for an opportune moment to unleash the tape recordings, or not, based on whether Turkey gets what it wants from Saudi Arabia and the US.In an immediate analysis of the rationale behind President Erdogan’s unexpected diplomatic deference to the Saudi king, Martin Chulov, the Guardian’s Middle East correspondent, said: “Erdogan clearly calculated that it did not suit him, or Turkey, to release the audio of the killing, and apparent video – both of which multiple sources have confirmed that his officials indeed have.”Chulov continued, “His decision to return the onus to Saudi Arabia was interesting, and unexpected. After exerting extreme pressure on the kingdom through more than a fortnight of piecemeal leaks, he opted out of a coup de grace when he had the world’s attention.”Three weeks after Khashoggi’s death, the question is no longer: Did the Saudis kill Khashoggi? Saudi Arabia has admitted it.Instead, as the dissident Saudi journalist’s murder has now turned into Middle Eastern politicking, the real question, some analysts have suggested, should be: What does Turkey hope to get from the Saudi leadership’s successive strategic blunders?
After shooting his target, Parfitt told Toward-Parker to “back out the shank’ – an instruction to his friend to get out his knife, the court heard.Toward-Parker, of Bath Road, Swindon, then told the love rival’s friend: “Don’t think I won’t bore you out with the knife” before plunging it into his buttocks.He denied using those words at the trial, claiming he had lost his grip on the weapon as they scuffled and it accidentally penetrated the victim.But a jury took an hour to find him guilty and he was remanded in custody for sentencing in October, when he is expected to get a lengthy jail term.Parfitt, of Tudor Walk in Walcot, Swindon, admitted unlawful wounding and possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.He was sentenced to a two-year youth rehabilitation order as he has served eight months on remand.Now 18, he must also complete a weapons awareness course, do a two-month night time curfew and 40 hours of unpaid work.Judge Peter Crabtree said: “This was an attack which involved a significant degree of premeditation.”Use of a weapon and you had Mr Toward-Parker there for support.”Det Sgt Anger added: “The two defendants went to that park carrying weapons with the intent of harming those they had gone to meet.

Police have released a shocking image of a zombie knife which was plunged so deep into a man’s buttocks it had to be surgically removed.The victim was stabbed by Aaron Toward-Parker, 18, during a showdown between love rivals in a park.Police released an X-ray of the embedded blade after the teenager was found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at Swindon Crown Court.Detective Sergeant Scott Anger, of Wiltshire Police, said: “This was a very violent assault which could have very easily had serious, if not fatal, consequences.”The victim who was stabbed had to be taken to hospital by ambulance with the large knife still in place and then had to have an operation to have the knife surgically removed.”Luckily, he has gone on to make a good recovery.”The court heard how Toward-Parker’s friend Jack Parfitt arranged to meet a colleague of his pregnant girlfriend – after becoming upset at flirting between the pair.They arrived at the scene near Covingham Square in Swindon on bikes at around 9pm on January 20 this year.Parfitt, then 17, identified his target and opened fire with a BB gun.The victim of the zombie knife was a friend of the love rival who had accompanied him to the park. “They had no regard for the consequences of their actions or the fact that they could have seriously injured or even killed those that they attacked.”I would like to commend the bravery of the victims, who have worked with police to make sure those responsible have been brought to justice.”And I would like to applaud the actions of the police officers who attended the incident on the night and those who have worked tirelessly on this case over the past six months.”

She had received a diagnosis of a fatal foetal anomaly during a pregnancy in 2010 and made the very difficult decision that bringing her pregnancy to an end, sooner rather than later, was what was best for her and her family.However, by refusing her access to abortion services and forcing her to travel to the UK for medical assistance, Ireland violated her rights to privacy, discriminated against her on the basis of her gender, and subjected her to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, in contravention of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.Humiliated again by our governmentThe Committee have again told Ireland that we must take whatever steps are necessary to prevent others from being subjected to the same human rights violations, and must compensate Siobhán Whelan for the harm done to her.Yet again the people of Ireland have been humiliated by our own government. We have known for a long time that the denial of abortion services to women facing these types of crises is a breach of human rights.In June of last year this same Committee reached the same damning conclusions in the case of Amanda Mellett. The Irish State was to have responded with details of how they were going to prevent these breaches from occurring within 180 days (6 months) of that finding. Their response was that they had established the Citizen’s Assembly to discuss the matter and make recommendations to them.Vague promises about a referendumTFMR Ireland went on record at the time to say that the Oireachtas Committee should work in parallel with the Citizen’s Assembly, so that when the recommendations were made they would be as well briefed as the volunteer citizens. This would have left them with no excuses for delay.Instead, the government saw the Citizen’s Assembly as a “time out” and simply sat back, not only ignoring their responsibilities as legislators, but also ignoring all of the women and families who wish to have continuity of medical care within our own borders.A further 190 days have elapsed since Ireland’s first 180 days expired (on 6th December 2016) and the Oireachtas have not even finalised the makeup of the Committee to discuss the recommendations of the Citizen’s Assembly. The best we have are vague expressions that it might be possible to have some form of referendum next year.In the meantime, we know that an average of three families every week travel to Liverpool Women’s Hospital to receive the care they need following devastating diagnoses. This is just one medical facility to which Irish women travel – there are others.Forced to remain pregnantThis doesn’t take account of all those women who wish to end their pregnancies early but for a variety of reasons are unable to travel, and they are forced to remain pregnant against their wills, waiting for their babies to die inside them.Every single one of these women wished to receive the care they needed in their own hospital, with their own doctors, with the support of their families and wider communities. They wanted to go back to their own beds, not to budget hotels, airports or ferry ports. Many of these women end up having to travel back to the UK to attend cremation services and then travel back again to collect the cremated remains of their babies, knowing they will be stopped at airport security to explain their little package.Others have the cremated remains delivered home by courier at enormous expense (£900 was most recent figure we heard). Some parents bring the remains back to Ireland for burial, and this can involve having to open the coffin every two hours to put in ice-packs so that their baby’s remains are kept cool.Repeal the 8thWhy is it that bereaved mothers like Siobhán Whelan, and Amanda Mellett before her, have to be the brave ones? The founders of the main political parties in Ireland would turn in their graves to see the cowardly hand-wringing that we have witnessed over recent years.We are calling upon Leo Varadkar, as our new Taoiseach, to step up and demonstrate a determination that Ireland’s Constitution and laws will be changed to ensure that human rights are upheld. He needs to reflect in our laws the true nature of the people of Ireland as a compassionate, empathetic and supportive society.How many more women and girls are he and his government prepared to abuse while they continuously seek to delay doing what is necessary – giving the people of Ireland their referendum to repeal the 8th.Gerry Edwards is Chairperson of TFMR Ireland.Column: ‘It’s not fair to ask the public to subsidise uneconomic wind farms’>‘We need to be cautious about celebrating Varadkar’s political success’> ‘Some parents have to open the coffin every two hours to put in ice-packs so remains stay cool’ How many more girls are our government prepared to abuse while they delay a referendum on the Eighth Amendment, asks Gerry Edwards.

Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has declared that the penalty VAR awarded to France was wrongly given during their 2018 World Cup final match against Croatia on Sunday.During the match, Referee Nestor Pitana had first missed Ivan Perisic’s handball inside the France box, but the official opted the award the spot-kick following a VAR review.Perisic’s view seemed to be blocked by Blaise Matuidi just before the ball struck the Inter Milan winger’s arm, and Gallagher has believed that it was “100% not a penalty”.Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group H George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group H is being controlled by France and Turkey, but Iceland is still in with a shout.Reigning world champions France ran…“100% not a penalty. He’s far, far too close to the ball as it comes over the forward’s head,” Gallagher told Sky Sports as quoted by Sports Mole.“It just strikes him – he doesn’t move his hand to the ball, he’s got no intention of handling the ball. The law says it has to be deliberate. His arms aren’t in an unorthodox position – it just doesn’t tick any boxes.”Antoine Griezmann netted the penalty to give France a 2-1 lead against Croatia in Moscow, and Les Bleus ultimately claimed the trophy with a 4-2 success over Croatia.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 27 Jul 2015 – Held at gunpoint, 28 poachers were busted by TCI officers on Thursday afternoon in a collaboration between law enforcement and civilians which seemed to nab a group of Dominicans who had so far caught nearly 2,000 pounds of lobster, parrot fish and conch – illegally. Eight charges will be leveled against the men from the Dominican Republic tomorrow when they head to court, namely: Taking marine product without a license; taking marine product using breathing apparatus; possession of spear guns; taking marine product by use of a spear gun; use of unlicensed vessels; possession of egg-bearing lobster; possession of parrot fish; and possession of crawfish during the closed season. Magnetic Media is informed that this pilferage of TCI waters has been an on-going problem which eluded law enforcers. A civilian tip led to the red-handed capture; we understand that two boats got away…and still 14 illegal vessels were seized in the raid.

Croatia defender Dejan Lovren insists he is ready for a fiery clash against England on Sunday.The Three Lions host Croatia in their final group game of the UEFA Nations League and a victory against the World Cup runners-up will guarantee a place in next summer’s semi-finals.The Liverpool defender was part of Croatia’s squad throughout their impressive run to the final of this summer’s World Cup in Russia.Both teams know a win at on Sunday will see them top League A’s Group 4 and advance to the next stage, and Lovren is relishing the prospect of coming up against Gareth Southgate’s side.“It’s a final against England, so of course we will be strong,” he was quoted as saying by The Daily Mirror.“I think it will be a fiery game against them – they know us and what they can expect from us, and we will not run away from that.”Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I love playing against England. I know the players in the Premier League and I have competed against them.”England and Croatia met earlier in the Nations League as they played out a 0-0 draw last month in Rijeka, and Lovren feels recent history will give Zlatko Dalic’s men plenty of belief.“People criticise me, but they didn’t say much when England didn’t score against us in the last game,” he said.“They will have extra motivation after the World Cup, but I think we will be brave.”“It will not be a friendly. We have beaten Spain and we want to win it now.”Spain will top the group, should England and Croatia play out a draw on Sunday night.
Dave Battle biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game: “Just coming straight at them with its head down, not phased by yelling, waving arms, or even the dogs barking at it. It just kept coming. Didn’t have any vocalizations or anything that would indicate defensive behavior. And that’s the kind of thing that concerns us with black bears.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers along the Turnagain Arm Trail to use caution, following multiple reports of a black bear displaying unusual behavior. The second report happened on Monday, closer to McHugh. Battle says in that case, hikers reported seeing a bear above them on a hill. It reportedly circled around and got close to their dog. One of the hikers fired a warning shot with a pistol, driving the bear off. If hikers do choose to use the trail, DF&G advises hikers to travel in groups. ADF&G has more information on bear safety on their website. The agency received the first report on May 23. A black bear approached two adults and two dogs about a mile south of the McHugh trailhead.
At a public meeting last week in the village of Carthage, N.Y., residents learned about the impact establishing a possible East Coast missile defense site at Fort Drum would have on the region.The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has identified 100 acres on the southeastern corner of the post as one of three candidate locations to host ground-based interceptors designed to protect the United States from ballistic missile attacks. The other two sites are Camp Ravenna Joint Training Center, Ohio, and Fort Custer Training Center, Mich.The North Country would gain up to 600 construction jobs while the site is built over five years, and the region would gain more than 1,000 new jobs as a result, reported North Country Public Radio.Building the site would require the closure of a road in a nearby town, more military personnel and civilian workers commuting to Fort Drum would travel through Carthage, officials said.“Because we are such a robust installation, we are able to easily accommodate the missile site and as well as any additional administrative needs they have,” said Eric Wagenaar, Fort Drum’s deputy garrison commander.Julie Halperin, the installation’s spokesperson, emphasized that no decision has been made to build an East Coast missile defense site. Ground-based interceptors already are in place at sites in California and Alaska, and the Pentagon does not favor building a third site, which would have an estimated cost of $3 billion or more.“I think it’s really important in this phase of the game to realize that the Department of Defense is not asking for this. The MDA is not asking for this. They have all been mandated to study this. This is just a study between three different locations to see environmentally which one would be the best location,” Halperin said.MDA is expected to select a preferred location for the missile defense site by the end of September.

Bengaluru: Janata Dal (Secular) president HD Deve Gowda on Sunday met his son and Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy amid turmoil in the state’s coalition government. The JDS supremo is not happy with some of the developments and statements of most of the Congress MLAs and leaders, sources said. They feel that even after allocation of portfolios, board, and corporation and providing many facilities to Congress MLAs they are speaking against the government, especially against Kumaraswamy and his style of functioning. Also Read – Sisodia inaugurates three-day Mehrauli Monsoon Festival Advertise With Us Earlier, Deve Gowda had claimed, “There is no doubt that there will be mid-term polls. They (Congress) said they will support us for five years but look at their behaviour now. Our people are smart.” However, he later downplayed his statement and said that his comment was about the local body elections, and not for the Assembly polls in the state. Also Read – CYSS on hunger strike for ballot papers Advertise With Us Kumaraswamy drew criticism from senior Congress leader Veerappa Moily who openly slammed Kumaraswamy for his “five-star” stay even in village stay tour in Kalburgi. “Simply sitting after becoming a chief minister or minister does not work. It is important to concentrate on schemes and their implementation. Chief ministers or ministers roaming villages does not work,” Moily said. Advertise With Us The Chief Minister met former MP and senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge right before his village tour. Many of the Congress leaders, including former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, are feeling to come out of coalition government and to sit in opposition even if BJP wins the mid-term election. Deve Gowda has conveyed his messages indirectly to Congress high command to make sure that dissent amongst the MLAs should be resolved.

Congress on Wednesday hit back at the government for targeting it for disruptions in the Indian Parliament alleging that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) dispensation was being “very insensitive” to the demands of its detractors and pursuing the agenda of “opposition-mukt bharat.” Leader of the Opposition in the Upper House of Parliament Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad also singled out Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu for attack remarking that “I have never seen a Parliamentary Affairs Minister spearheading confrontation.” Also Read – Punjab on alert after release of excess water from Bhakra damAsking the government to shed its “arrogance and vendetta politics”, Azad, who had been Parliamentary Affairs Minister thrice, said when in power, Congress often took up issues raised by the Opposition.“Then, I had told my colleagues that duty of Parliamentary Affairs Minister is to work with all parties. From Treasury benches, I had said that Parliamentary Affairs Minister represents both government and opposition,” Azad said targeting Naidu.Insisting that the government’s efforts to take the opposition along was a failure, he recalled that in 1991-96, Congress ran a minority government but still introduced revolutionary changes in the economy. “Congress had the ability to take Opposition along.”
As unbelievable as it may sound, people have started living near Chernobyl again. The 1986 explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in the former Soviet Union was a Europe-wide nuclear catastrophe. For ten days straight, the damaged reactor vented nuclear materials into the atmosphere, sending bitter clouds across the continent to spew forth acid rain. Two plant workers were killed by the initial explosion, and 134 emergency workers (known as ‘liquidators’) sent to the site were hospitalized with radiation sickness. 28 of them died in the coming weeks and months, and another 14 later succumbed from high doses of radiation.Chernobyl, Ukraine – 26 November 2017. Inside of unfinished cooling tower of Chernobyl nuclear power plant block 5The nearby town of Pripyat was evacuated, but the damage was done – over 15 children would later succumb to thyroid cancer. 116,000 people were bussed out of the surrounding area at first, then another 234,000 as fears of contamination increased. Farms in the region reported a surge in animal mutations, as newborns were born heavily deformed, some missing limbs, eyes, and even heads.To contain the radiation a concrete dome was built to enclose the site of the doomed reactor and a 2,600 km2 exclusion zone surrounds Chernobyl where no people should be allowed. Officially called ‘the Zone of Alienation’ and overlapping the borders of Belarus and Ukraine, Chernobyl is now an eerie landscape of skeletal apartment blocks and ghost villages reclaimed by the green talons of nature.Old Pripyat City sign in Chernobyl restricted zone with radioactivity warning signDespite its foreboding reputation, according to BBC News people have started to move back to the edges of the exclusion zone. An estimated 130 and 150 people have braved radiation – and Ukrainian law – to make a life in this surreal climate.Most of them are elderly women who returned to their small family farms knowing no other life, but affordable land has attracted families fleeing conflict zones.Chernobyl, Ukraine – August 27, 2012: A Ukrainian women who live in Chernobyl’s post-nuclear disaster “Zone of Alienation” or “Dead Zone” for more than 25 years. She lives with here husband 6km from the Reactor, in the less contaminated east side of the Chernobyl reactor. they live of self grown crop and vegetables.Those living in the exclusion zone have access to gas, electricity and a phone signal, but there’s no sewage or running water. Groundwater is contaminated and anything from a well must be boiled before use. Take a closer look with this video:With no real industry the only income is welfare, but homes can be bought for hundreds of US dollars from owners who left in 1986 and never returned, and there’s plenty of land to grow vegetables and for livestock to graze.Chernobyl, Ukraine – August 27, 2012: A Ukrainian man who live in Chernobyl’s post-nuclear disaster “Zone of Alienation” or “Dead Zone” for more than 25 years. He lives with his wife 6km from the Reactor, in the less contaminated east side of the Chernobyl reactor. they live of self grown crop and vegetables.The community also bands together to provide solutions to those in need. The BBC spent time with a woman called Maryna who arrived with her children. Unable to afford a home, she was asked to care for an elderly resident with dementia – when he died two years later, the family inherited his home. In this way, the influx of newcomers is providing a vital lifeline to the aging ‘refuseniks’ who returned decades earlier.Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Zone of Alienation is exclusion zone around the site of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor established by USSR soon after disaster 1986.Despite atmospheric radiation having fallen to safe levels for much of the Chernobyl exclusion zone, the soil is still contaminated and the risks aren’t fully understood. Dr. Valery Kasparov, from the Ukrainian Institute of Agricultural Radiology (UIAR), told the BBC that potentially dangerous levels of radioactive Caesium-137 have been found in cow’s milk which could lead to thyroid cancer.The amusement park of Pripyat , It was to be opened for the first time on May 1, 1986, in time for the May Day celebrations but these plans were scuttled on April 26, when the Chernobyl disaster occurred a few kilometers away.The radiation in the soil entered the roots of the grass, which was then consumed by cattle. Further risk may come from wild produce, like mushrooms or berries which haven’t been studied yet. Dr. Kasparov added that the danger mainly comes from radioactive ‘hot spots’ in the exclusion zone and his team are in the process of mapping them to help keep families like Maryna’s safe.Read another story from us: The Radioactive Dogs of Chernobyl are Being Brought Back into SocietyFurther interest in Chernobyl and its people has been created by HBO’s miniseries depicting the cataclysmic events of 1986.

It can be argued that no major college head coach has had the monumental impact on a university, and the campus community, more so than Kansas State’s Bill Snyder.However, if an argument on the topic is what you seek, you won’t get it from me. Synder is a coaching legend in every sense of the word.The list of guys that could go to Manhattan, KS and turn the Wildcats into a winner is short. So short in fact, that Snyder’s name is the only one on the list right now, and that list is carved in stone. He’s won more games there than all other Kansas State coaches combined. No other coach has even hit the 40-win mark. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix On the field he has taken a downtrodden program from doormat to conference contender, not once, but twice. He took over the program in 1989 following a successful ten-year run as the offensive coordinator at Iowa. The program he took over had won an average of 3 games a year for the first 93 years of their existence. The program, which SI had tapped “America’s Most Hapless team”, was unquestionably one of the worst in the country, and had lost 26 of their last 27 games, and the lone outlier in that bunch wasn’t even a win, it went down as a tie.From 1989-2005, Snyder led the team to 11 bowl games in his final 13 seasons and that included breaking the double-digit wins mark a total of six times. Following his initial retirement from coaching in 2005, the administration decided to rename the stadium “Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium” in honor of him.After leaving the coaching profession completely for three seasons, in November of 2008, Snyder was re-introduced as the program’s head coach, taking over for Ron Prince who went 17-20 in three seasons. Since his comeback, Snyder has led the team to a bowl eligibility every season, including five straight bowl trips, with Cotton and Fiesta Bowl appearances in 2011 and 2012 included in that streak. After taking on a major rebuilding project, his record with the program during two stints stands at an impressive 190-98-1.But let’s put his on the field accomplishments aside for a moment, because this a man whose character is second to none. Snyder still sends the occasional hand-written letter to players who beat him and his team as the clock runs out, and is the same man that helped turn the facilities in Manhattan from unexciting to jaw-dropping impressive. and also the man who quite literally saved the life of one of his assistant coaches.Yet, here we are past the midway mark of the 2015 season, and the Wildcats are sitting at 3-4. They won their first three games (South Dakota, UTSA & Louisiana Tech in 3OT), but since the start of the Big 12 conference slate, the ‘Cats have dropped four in a row, including a miserable 55-0 defeat to Oklahoma.Snyder’s remaining games are tonight vs. Baylor, then at Texas Tech, vs. Iowa State, at Kansas, and vs. West Virginia to end the season. While every one of those games are certainly winnable, it forces you to consider the fact that Kansas State may not be able to get enough wins to get bowl eligible, and that would be a first under The Purple Wizard since 2005. If they’re unable to win three or four of these games, recent decisions by Spurrier and Beamer begin to sneak into the mind.ESPNAlready this season, college football has lost two coaching legends in Steve Spurrier and Frank Beamer. If word came out that Snyder also wouldn’t return next season, the 2015 coaching carousel will always be remembered as the year the legends stepped down.Will the 76 year old Snyder follow in Beamer and Spurrier’s footsteps and step down at some point during or after this season? It’s possible. But it’s also equally as likely that Snyder bucks conventional wisdom, as he has every off season for the past decade, to return in 2016. The past few years there has been smoke filling the air about his retirement, and yet (thankfully) come every fall, Snyder can still be seen pacing the sidelines on Saturday afternoons.As the past few weeks have reminded us all, there aren’t too many “legends” remaining in the profession. Given that you never know when it might happen, we encourage everyone to watch coach Snyder’s Wildcats play tonight against Baylor. Don’t know how many more national TV opportunities might lie ahead.Coaching Gods, if you’re listening, do us a solid and bring Bill Snyder back next season.
— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) October 21, 2016Perhaps even crazier than the call was that it didn’t end up immediately hurting BYU. Boise State got backed up on a personal foul to the 17 yard line and ended up missing a field goal after the offense couldn’t get anything going.Asked after the game what his thought process was for the call, first-year head coach Kalani Sitake responded:Sitake on the fake punt call: “We thought we had it. We wanted to be aggressive. We came here to win the game. They made a great adjustment”— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) October 21, 2016If it would have went for a 96-yard touchdown, or even a first down, everyone would love the gutsy call, but it didn’t work out that way, and at the end of the day, Boise State couldn’t convert it to points, so no harm done.Social media was ripe with opinions on the call, and the Cougars would go on to lose 28-27, marking their fourth loss by single digits. BYU currently sits at 4-4 with games against Cincinnati, FCS Southern Utah, UMass, and Utah State left.BYU has four losses by a combined eight points.— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) October 21, 2016 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Early in the second quarter of the BYU vs. Boise State game last night, BYU was facing 4th and 19 from inside their own four-yard line so they brought out their punt team.Except, even with the punter’s heels just a yard from the back of the end zone, BYU decided not to punt, and instead ran a designed fake.As you can imagine, it didn’t turn out too well.Fourth-and-19, standing in your own end zone?
