Predicting The Next 5 College Football Coaches Who Will Win Their First NCAA Title

first_imgA CFB coach seen with his face covered. Nick Saban AlabamaWill Saban win another one?Winning a national title is no easy task. Realistically, there are only 10 programs each season that have a shot at winning it all, though that list can look slightly different each and every year. The standard programs like Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Florida State, and the now-obvious addition of Clemson, always seem to be part of that list. Other teams have proven capable of positioning themselves for a title run, too. By now, college football fans are all aware that Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, Bob Stoops, Les Miles and Jimbo Fisher have etched their names in the history books in recent years, and all have a shot at another title run in 2016. But which coaches are on their way to winning their first national title?Here are the next five coaches who will win their first NCAA title. Get Stared With No. 5 Dabo Swinney >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6last_img read more

Report: Japan 1 Saudi Arabia 0

first_imgJapan reached the Asian Cup quarter-finals for the eighth consecutive time after Takehiro Tomiyasu’s goal led them to a 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia.In a game of few chances at Sharjah Stadium, Tomiyasu converted a header after 20 minutes and Juan Antonio Pizzi’s side failed to mount a comeback.Pizzi had been criticised for Saudi Arabia’s conservative approach during their group matches and once again they offered too little in the final third to trouble four-time winners Japan.

Rashford: No one believed England could win something

first_imgMarcus Rashford says it is clear that England are heading in the right direction as the Three Lions prepare for the upcoming Nations League semi-finals.Rashford and co. are set to take on the Netherlands on Thursday in the penultimate round of the competition.The Three Lions’ Champions League success comes on the heels of a thrilling World Cup run, one which saw the team make it all the way to the semi-finals before falling to Croatia. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Rashford, a member of that World Cup team, says the last year or so has shown just how far Gareth Southgate’s side has come, and how much further they can go over the next few years.“There are signs we are heading in the right direction,” he told the Mirror. “Before the World Cup, we were winning games and playing good football but when it came to games against the big teams – the elite nations we want to be amongst – we fell short a couple of times.”But in this last year we have played Spain and Croatia and managed to get over the line. It shows we are improving.“The World Cup was the start of a journey, rather than the end of an adventure. Because since then we have kicked on. We’ve changed the system but have kicked on.”He added: “If we want to get to our aim of being the number one team in the world, we have to beat the best teams.”England’s next step towards becoming the world’s best team will come on Thursday, when they take on Netherlands with a spot in the finale on the line. With Switzerland and Portugal set to collide in the other semi-final, England are just two steps away from winning the first ever Nations League crown. The idea of being the inaugural winners is one that is vital for Rashford, who sees it as a chance to make legitimate history. “Holland will be tough, but we are determined to do well. Not long ago, back at the Euros in 2016, I don’t think our fans believed we could win something,” he said. “I think that is different now. It’s been a long time since we won something so it would be nice.” He added: “We are approaching this Nations League as though it is a major tournament, 100 per cent. “We want our names to be first in the history books. Who knows? In the future, it could grow into a big, big tournament.”last_img read more
