from the inside, the quartet of Richard Kilty, from corse178's blog

For all the fond memories of yesteryear, the final season when ties were allowed in college football -- 1995 -- was a reminder of why they went away. Cheap Jerseys Throwback .The ties that season included a Pac-10 game that ended up deciding who went to the Rose Bowl; an ugly 3-3 snoozefest between Big Ten foes that was the final Division I game to finish tied; and a lower-level national title game that finished with co-champions and is believed to be the final college game to end deadlocked.Its the worst. Its the worst. Its like, `Why did we even play, is what you are thinking, said Darrell Bevell, current Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator and Wisconsin starting quarterback in 1995.Heres a look at three memorable ties from the final season before they were vanquished for good by a rules change that now provides both teams with chances to win in overtime:- Dec. 16, 1995. Central Washington 21, Findlay 21, NAIA Division II championship gameIts inconceivable that a championship game could finish in a deadlock. But thats what happened in the NAIA championship game.It was frustrating on both sides, said then-Central Washington coach Jeff Zenisek, now a high school coach about an hour southeast of Seattle. It was like, `Its not supposed to end like this. It just felt like, `Lets go out into the parking lot and finish this thing.The teams were aware the game could finish tied and in reality likely should have been decided in regulation. Down 14-0, Central Washington rallied behind quarterback Jon Kitna. His 7-yard touchdown pass to Todd Murray early in the fourth quarter pulled the Wildcats even at 21-21. But Central Washington missed a pair of field goal attempts in the fourth quarter, the last coming with 6 seconds left. Findlay took a knee on the final play rather than make a final desperation effort to provide a winner.We realized it but you really dont. The adrenaline is going and its like an automatic, `Lets get ready for overtime. And then all of a sudden it was like, `Oh, this is it, its over, Zenisek said. It was kind of a shock to both teams.Despite the unsatisfying result, the game was the catalyst for Kitnas lengthy NFL career. Then-Seattle Seahawks coach Dennis Erickson was in attendance at the title game to watch his nephew who played for Central Washington. Kitna was later signed by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent and eventually stuck around the NFL for parts of 14 seasons.- Nov. 25, 1995. Wisconsin 3, Illinois 3.The final Division I game to finish tied is a painful memory for Bevell. Not so much for the result.It was the last game of my career and I ended up in the hospital with lacerated kidney, Bevell said.Bevell was injured late in the first half, sandwiched by Illinois Simeon Rice and Kevin Hardy. He was thought to have bruised ribs and remained in the game. Bevell remembered aggravating the injury in the second half getting pulled down from behind. Unable to continue, Bevell left the game with 3 minutes remaining and the Badgers facing a third down. The Badgers fumbled on the next play and Illinois missed a long field goal in the final minute.Once Bevell reached the locker room his condition was deemed more serious and was taken to a hospital where he was place in the intensive care unit. It wasnt until he was visited by coach Barry Alvarez that he found out the game finished 3-3, the second tie of the season for Wisconsin.I thought we were going to win if we could have gotten one more first down, Bevell said.- Oct. 28, 1995. Washington 21, USC 21.Washington was rolling toward at Pac-10 title. The Huskies were leading USC 21-0 headed to the fourth quarter and about to take complete control of the race for the Rose Bowl.USC rallied with three touchdowns in the final 15 minutes, capped by Brad Ottons 2-yard TD pass to Jimmy Williams with 33 seconds left. Because USC had a better non-conference record than Washington, the Trojans knew a tie was to their benefit and didnt even think about going for the 2-point conversion.There were still three conference games left for both teams, but Washington lost the following week to Oregon -- meaning when USC later lost to UCLA, the Trojans were still Rose Bowl bound.I remember getting booed out of the stadium. ... It was an awful feeling after that game, then Washington QB Damon Huard said. I had never tied before and looking back now it was one of the worst moments of my career in so many ways because we missed the opportunity to go to the Rose Bowl. Wholesale Jerseys USA .

LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Great Britains Alistair Brownlee has become the first triathlete to retain an Olympic title as he led brother Jonny to a family gold and silver in Rio.The brothers, who finished first and third in London, did not put a foot wrong in front of packed crowds on Copacabana.It came down to a race between them and Alistair made his break on the third lap of the run, pulling away to claim a dominant victory Jonny comfortably held on for silver, making the brothers the first to finish one and two at an Olympics since Italians Piero and Raimondo DInzeo in equestrian in 1960.The final gap to Jonny was six seconds, with Henri Schoeman taking bronze for South Africa.Team GB sailors?Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark have brought their 470 partnership to a dream end by wrapping up Olympic gold.Four years on from taking silver on the home waters of Weymouth and Portland, the duo arrived in Brazil determined to go one better.It was a challenge Mills and Clark met with aplomb, producing an opening series as impressive as it was consistent to see them head into the womens 470 medal race all but assured of gold.The British duo merely had to complete the double-point medal race without disqualification and duly did so, easing home in eighth in the delayed finale to rubber-stamp glory.Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge won Great Britains first Olympic badminton medal since 2004 -- and its first ever in the mens doubles.The pair triumphed 21-18, 19-21, 21-10 in the mens doubles bronze medal match against Chinas Biao Chai and Hong Wei at Riocentro.Ellis and Langridge won a tense opening game before the Chinese drew level when Ellis served into the net, but the British combbination stormed away with the decider and secured a podium place. Cheap NFL Jerseys. The last Britons to collect an Olympic badminton medal were Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms in the Athens Games mixed doubles.Elsewhere in Kayaking, Liam Heath and Jon Schofield have claimed a silver medal for Team GB, an upgrade of the bronze medal the pair won at London 2012.The pair started impressively and maintained their pace to cross the line in 32.368 seconds.As soon as we saw it on the board, Jon absolutely went mental.?Heath said upon returning to dry land.Great Britains men angrily defended their medal prospects in the 4x100 metres relay after only sneaking into the final.Running from the inside, the quartet of Richard Kilty, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, James Ellington and Chijindu Ujah came home third in their semifinal in 38.06 seconds.The time ranked them seventh of the eight qualifiers for the final and Ellington said they would be praying and keeping their fingers crossed for a better lane. Those prayers, though, were not answered.?It would have been 37.7secs in a better lane, said Ellington. Its (38.06s) probably the fastest time ever from lane one, so we werent playing it safe. This is the Olympics, so weve got to lay it down in the heats and the finals.Britains womens quartet of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita advanced to the final in rather more comfortable fashion than the men, finishing second to Jamaica in 41.93.They will also have hopes of a medal, having broken the British record last month. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
