(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) CFB PlayoffTwitter/PlayoffThis Monday, the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers will meet in the College Football Playoff title game – capping off what’s been an incredible 2015 season. But we’re already looking ahead to 2016. We have a feeling that fans of every other team in the nation are too.Last year, we put together a list of the 13 teams that could eventually prevail and win the national championship. Three of those teams – Clemson, Alabama and Michigan State – reached the College Football Playoff. Of course, two of them are in the title game.This year, we’ve gone ahead and done the same. Unfortunately, given the tier-system in college football regarding talent, the field is never wide open. Year over year, the same programs, more or less, are capable of putting together title contenders. In some sense, college football is more predictable than many of the other popular sports in our country.Which 13 teams actually have a chance to play for it all next year? Let’s find out:The Only 13 Teams That Can Win >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14last_img read more

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)May 26 2019Most youth baseball coaches are not following established sports medicine guidelines when it comes to counting pitches for their players, according to a recent study from University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. The findings suggest that coaches may need to enlist parents’ help in counting pitches for their young players. Do strength training: “All kids should be doing pre-season strength training,” she says. “It used to be thought that kids lifting weights would hurt their growth plates. But studies have shown that kids don’t have enough circulating testosterone to build up that huge bulk, but that if they do lift weights, they can build muscle endurance, and that will protect their elbow and shoulder. It’s most effective to use light weights with lots of repetitions.” Warm up: “Players should do a light throw before they pitch, just like you would jog before you sprint,” Dr. Gilmore says. Avoid playing baseball year-round. “There are lots of studies showing that if they’re in the same sport year-round, there’s a higher incidence of overuse injuries,” she says. With Little League players, the recommendation is that they should play no more than nine months a year. The other months should be devoted to active rest, such as playing a different sport that doesn’t involve throwing. A child age 8 to 10 should only have 52 pitches per week, and they can only have two games per week.”Allison Gilmore, MD, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist at UH Rainbow and senior author of the study Dr. Gilmore says she hopes coaches and parents will become more familiar with the established sports medicine guideline on pitch counts.”It would be helpful to print out some of these guidelines, which have been studied and already are common knowledge,” she says. “It’s really an important thing. Kids don’t know enough to sit out. It’s up to the parents and up to the adults to protect our kids.”center_img “A kid the same age should only have 75 total pitches per week and 1,000 per season and 3,000 for an entire year.” she says. “It’s very tough for just the coach, who doesn’t know what the kid is doing during school or on other teams, to keep track of all that. Parents can have these guidelines, and they can take responsibility as much as the coaches.”Risk for overuse injuryYouth pitchers are at high risk for shoulder and elbow overuse injuries, and such injuries are on the rise. What’s more, when compared with all other positions in baseball, injuries sustained during pitching are at significantly higher risk to require surgery.For the study, Dr. Gilmore and her UH Rainbow colleagues surveyed 82 youth baseball coaches in two Midwestern metropolitan areas. They asked questions about the type of team, age of the players and how often they counted pitches and in what way – per game, per week, per season, per year or some combination of those.Results showed that 56 percent of coaches surveyed reported “always” keeping track of pitch counts. However, 92 percent reported not keeping track of pitch counts according to the recommendations of the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI). ASMI recommends tracking pitches on a game, weekly, seasonal and yearly basis.In addition, 56 percent of coaches surveyed reported not following the pitch count recommendations as established by the USA Baseball Medical & Safety Advisory Committee. Just 13 percent of coaches could correctly identify risk factors for overuse injuries.Related StoriesRevolutionary gene replacement surgery restores vision in patients with retinal degenerationGuidelines to help children develop healthy habits early in lifeWhy Mattresses Could be a Health Threat to Sleeping ChildrenThe study was published recently in Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics.Parents need to helpCounting pitches can be complicated, and the onus shouldn’t fall solely on coaches, Dr. Gilmore says.”It’s not that coaches don’t want to do it,” she says. “I think it’s a hard thing for them to do. Kids are also on multiple teams, such as school teams and outside teams,” she says. “It’s definitely not an easy thing to control. A lot of parents sit and watch the games, so perhaps we can enlist some of the parents to keep track.”Beyond increased parent involvement, Dr. Gilmore also offers these tips for preventing pitching injuries: Source:University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Centerlast_img read more

first_img Press Trust of India AmaravatiJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 00:23 IST Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy (right) and leader of opposition N Chandrababu Naidu.A war of words between Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and leader of opposition N. Chandrababu Naidu rocked the state Assembly on Friday.Pandemonium prevailed in the House as there were heated exchanges between the two leaders during a debate on interest-free loans for farmers.As the debate on the issue was taken up for second day due to persistent demands by opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Naidu reeled out statistics from different documents to deny the allegations by Jagan Reddy that the previous government did not implement zero per cent interest scheme.As the chief minister had on Thursday dared Naidu to resign and leave the House for failing to give even a penny to the farmers, Naidu hit back at Jagan Reddy by providing the statistics. “Will you resign now or apologise to people?” the TDP chief asked the chief minister, evoking protest from treasury benches.Countering Naidu, Jagan Reddy said the TDP government provided only Rs 600 crore for the scheme while it should have given Rs 11,600 crore in five years. He said Naidu was claiming a great achievement by giving just 5 per cent money.There were repeated interruptions when the chief minister was speaking. Irked over this, he remarked “We are 151. If we decide you will not be seen around.”When TDP leader Atchan Naidu tried to intervene, Jagan Reddy asked him to sit and taunted him. “The man is of this size, but the brain is not of that level. You don’t know what to speak and what not to speak,” said the chief minister.Speaker T. Seetharam also reprimanded the TDP members for repeatedly creating disruptions.YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) has 151 members in 175-member Assembly. The TDP’s strength is 23.ALSO READ | Andhra Pradesh: YS Jagan Mohan Reddy govt presents its first budgetALSO WATCH | Rahul Gandhi finally steps down as party president; Jaganmohan Reddy’s demolition spree; moreFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
