Oregon’s Rose Bowl victory shows Mario Cristobal can lead Ducks back to Playoff

first_imgIt almost happened this year. If not for a last-minute hiccup against Auburn in the opener or a land-mine trap game at Arizona State, Oregon might have done that this season.Instead, the Ducks will have to learn the lessons from those mistakes and make that run in 2020.MORE: Highlights, scores, updates from Oregon’s Rose Bowl winThe Rose Bowl Game showed how that could be possible. Oregon didn’t play its best game. Herbert finished 14 of 20 for 138 yards and an interception. The Ducks had just 66 rushing yards on 30 attempts. It was more of a gut-it-out-game with the Badgers than the 45-38 shootout they played in Pasadena in 2012.But Oregon limited Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor to 94 yards on 21 carries, and the Badgers never led by more than six points. Herbert’s 30-yard touchdown run, one of his three rushing scores in the game, gave the Ducks the go-ahead score with 7:41 remaining. Oregon didn’t score again, but it didn’t need to: The Ducks’ defense limited Wisconsin to 4 yards on nine plays over the next two drives.It was the kind of game Oregon needed to win to show it’s ready for that Playoff conversation again. After all, the Ducks are the only Pac-12 team to win a Playoff game, even though 2014 seems like ages ago. With Cristobal, the Ducks are building a different kind of contender. It’s not the long-term project Mike Bellotti built from the ground up, or the lightning fast flash-and-dash teams Chip Kelly pushed to the brink of a national championship.Cristobal is building off the lessons learned as a player at Miami and as an assistant coach at Alabama from 2013-16. Cristobal has elevated the Ducks’ recruiting with recruits such as Kayvon Thibodeaux, who will be joined next fall by five-star linebackers Justin Flowe and Noah Sewell — brother of Sporting News All-American tackle Penei Sewell. The offense might get talented Wake Forest quarterback Jamie Newman via the transfer portal to replace Herbert, and the uniforms will always stay fresh with that Nike label.Think about it. Of the teams with 11 or more wins that played in the New Year’s Day 6 this season, which team do you think will make a Playoff run? Penn State has to deal with Ohio State in the always-tough Big Ten East division. Florida has to deal with Georgia, who has to deal with LSU and Alabama. Oregon, meanwhile, has a chance to reestablish its dominance in the Pac-12 and earn a couple more national championship shots. The Ducks will be a hot Playoff pick in 2020 as a result.WOLF: Oregon’s win is Pac-12’s loss in Playoff race The next College Football Playoff contender grew up at the Rose Bowl Game on Wednesday.No. 7 Oregon finished off a 28-27 victory against No. 11 Wisconsin with that vintage aggressive style on a 28-yard pass from Justin Herbert to Juwan Johnson on the final drive of the game. The Ducks capped off a 12-win season that included a Pac-12 championship and showed why Mario Cristobal has this team inching closer toward a Playoff berth for a conference searching for respect. For the Pac-12, that seems like the best-case scenario after missing the Playoff each of the last three seasons. Chris Petersen left Washington, and USC appears headed for another year of hot-seat talk involving coach Clay Helton. The Huskies and Trojans both visit Autzen Stadium next year, but not before Ohio State — the team that crushed the Ducks 42-20 in the first championship game of the Playoff era.Oregon went 20-17 over the next two-plus seasons under Mark Helfrich and Willie Taggart before Cristobal took over.The Buckeyes come to Autzen Stadium on Sept. 12. Then we’ll see how much Oregon has grown up.last_img read more

Unifor calls on Compass to halt layoffs at Goderich mine ahead of

first_imgGODERICH, Ont. – Unifor is calling on Compass Minerals to pause job cuts at its salt mine in Goderich, Ont. ahead of collective bargaining talks.The union says the company gave lay-off notices to about 48 workers last week, while the Local 16-O union has given notice to bargain for March 5 and has filed for conciliation.Unifor says that laying off 10 per cent of the mine’s workforce two weeks before bargaining is a very aggressive move and that the company is “acting like an employer itching for major job action.”The union says it also has serious concerns over how Compass has acted, accusing the company of encouraging workers to take severance packages that would cancel their right to be recalled if production at the mine increases.The Kansas-based company did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Unifor’s accusations, but said previously that the cuts are part of a years-long restructuring that includes a shift to a mining method that is safer and requires fewer employees.Compass, which bought the Goderich mine in 1990, says the operation located 550 metres under Lake Huron is the largest underground salt mine in the world with the product being mostly used for winter road maintenance.last_img read more

Meeting with PM wont stop BCs opposition to pipeline Horgan

first_imgHe said Notley and the prime minister should at least consider building more oil refineries in Canada.Horgan, who has often suggested building more refineries, said he will raise the issue in Sunday’s meeting.“If they have disposable billions, I would suggest a better course of action would be investing in refining capacity so that we Canadians can benefit from the jobs and we Canadians can benefit from this natural resource rather than sending it in raw form to another jurisdiction,” he said.By Dirk MeissnerTHE CANADIAN PRESS Trudeau summoned Horgan and Notley for the meeting over the escalating dispute. The prime minister is attending the Summit of the Americas in Peru, but will return to Canada for the meeting before heading to Europe on a trade mission.Kinder Morgan, the pipeline’s operator, turned up the heat last week announcing it is stopping essential spending on the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain expansion because of opposition and delays in B.C. The company established a May 31 deadline for action.“I’m happy to hear what the prime minister and perhaps Rachel Notley has to say,” Horgan said. “I don’t feel there’s any need for sabre-rattling or provocation, nor for threats.”Notley said her New Democrat government is preparing to introduce legislation that could reduce the flow of oil to B.C., which is likely to cause gas prices to spike in the Vancouver area, where motorists are already paying more than $1.50 per litre.On Thursday in Edmonton, Notley didn’t appear to soften her stand ahead of the meeting.“There is one and only one solution, and that solution is that the pipeline gets built without delay.” Trudeau was in Vancouver and Victoria last week where he was met by protests, but reiterated the federal government approved the pipeline project in November 2016 and will ensure it is built. The federal cabinet held an emergency meeting this week and has since voiced its support for the project.Horgan said B.C. intends to pursue court action that involves seeking a constitutional reference case to determine who has the jurisdiction to permit the pipeline to cross B.C.“We are in court following the rule of law. We’re developing a question with respect to jurisdiction that will be referred to a court in short order and as far as I’m concerned we are issuing (project) permits as requested by the proponent.”Green Party leader Andrew Weaver said the federal and Alberta governments are missing an opportunity to bring Canada’s economy into the 21st century by supporting the expansion project.center_img VICTORIA, B.C. — A defiant British Columbia Premier John Horgan said he won’t back down from his government’s opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline project when he meets Sunday with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.Horgan said Thursday he will go to Ottawa to hear what the prime minister and Alberta premier have to say, but if they expect him to drop B.C.’s court actions or its advocacy for protection from oil spills, they are mistaken.“I will defend to the end the rights of B.C. to stand up and defend our coast,” Horgan said during an outdoor news conference near a legislature flower garden. “This is a serious issue for British Columbians and I’ll do my level best to make sure the premier of Alberta and the prime minister understand that.”last_img read more
