CHARLOTTE, NC – DECEMBER 02: Kelly Bryant #2 of the Clemson Tigers reacts after a touchdown against the Miami Hurricanes in the third quarter during the ACC Football Championship at Bank of America Stadium on December 2, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Earlier this week, Clemson benched quarterback Kelly Bryant in favor of true freshman QB Trevor Lawrence. That decision by Dabo Swinney is under heavy scrutiny on Saturday afternoon after Lawrence left the game with an injury.Bryant could have hopped in as the team’s backup, but the senior decided to announce his transfer rather than sit on the sideline for the remainder of his career. He was afforded that opportunity by the new redshirt rule that allows players to redshirt if they’ve played fewer than four games in a season.With Clemson trailing Syracuse and Trevor Lawrence out of the game, many are calling for Kelly Bryant to come back to the program. But can he?According to Dennis Dodd, the answer is yes.Am told IF Kelly Bryant hasn’t withdrawn and IF he wanted to come back, there is a reinstatement process where he could return to Clemson.— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) September 29, 2018Now the question becomes, would he want to come back?We’ll have to wait and see. Meanwhile, Clemson trails 23-20 with just under nine minutes left in the game.
Next UEFA Champions League: Manchester United complete stunning comeback to shatter PSGRomelu Lukaku scored a brace as Marcus Rashford converted a VAR-penalty to give Manchester United a 3-1 away victory over Paris Saint-Germain. The English club qualified for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League on away goalsadvertisement Reuters ParisMarch 7, 2019UPDATED: March 7, 2019 08:35 IST Marcus Rashford scored from the penalty spot to help Manchester United beat PSG 3-1 (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSManchester United won 3-1 away against Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions LeagueRomelu Lukaku scored a brace as Marcus Rashford converted a VAR-penaltyThe English club qualified for the quarter-finals on away goals ruleManchester United pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history as Marcus Rashford’s last-gasp VAR penalty sealed a 3-1 win at Paris St Germain on Wednesday and sent the English side into the quarter-finals on away goals.Never in 106 attempts in Europe’s premium club competition had a team progressed in a knockout tie after a 2-0 home defeat, but Rashford’s stoppage-time penalty – the first he had taken for the club – put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side through in the most dramatic fashion as the tie finished level at 3-3.The result came 20 years after Solskjaer wrote his name into the club’s folklore by scoring the injury-time winner in the final victory over Bayern Munich to complete the treble of Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup.Now back as caretaker manager after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho, the Norwegian has overseen a remarkable turnaround as United have won 14 of 17 games in all competitions and hauled themselves back into the top-four battle in the Premier League.Progress in Europe looked a step too far, though, after United were outplayed by PSG at Old Trafford and arrived in Paris short of a host of key players through suspension and injury.However, with Alex Ferguson watching proudly from the stands, Solksjaer’s team achieved what no other has managed in the competition – as well as making himself the shortest of odds to fill the biggest seat in English football on a permanent basis at the end of the season.advertisement”It’s this club. It’s what we do, that’s Man United, that’s the Champions League, it’s what it does.”” said Solskjaer, who was managing Norwegian club Molde before getting the call to replace Mourinho in December.”It’s a typical Manchester United night. We had a game plan and the belief in the boys was what we hoped for. Everyone shares a huge pride. The players were focussed, they listened to all the instructions and they knew that we had to defend well. There was a lot of quality.”While United march on, PSG are left to wonder how, yet again, they have failed in Europe despite spending millions to put together a team that crushes all domestic opposition.They had lost only two of their last 50 European games at the Parc des Princes but have still yet to reach even the semi-finals of the Champions League.”The plan was to get the first goal, be in the game with 10 minutes to go,” Solskjaer said and he could not have scripted it any better as Romelu Lukaku intercepted a weak back pass from Thilo Kehrer, rounded Gianluigi Buffon and slid the ball into the empty net after two minutes.Time to hear from @MarcusRashford on THAT penalty… #MUFC pic.twitter.com/SMaetOmctLManchester United (@ManUtd) March 7, 2019NO SURPRISEPSG dominated possession, though, and with United’s defence all over the place, it was no surprise when Juan Bernat knocked in Kylian Mbappe’s cross to level after 12 minutes.The hosts continued to control the game but United took the advantage again with their next chance when Buffon failed to deal with a fierce, low Rashford shot and Lukaku poked home the rebound late in the first half.PSG, with injured Brazil striker Neymar watching from the stands, had all the ball in the second half without ever looking very threatening and seemingly settling for their 3-2 aggregate lead, while United were disciplined and tireless in defence.The visitors started to press forward in the final 10 minutes, with little joy, until Diogo Dalot fired in a speculative long-range shot that was blocked by the leaping Presnel Kimpembe.Nobody except Dalot seemed to notice the handball but the referee called for a review and pictures showed that the ball hit the back of Kimpembe’s arm as he jumped.Alter a lengthy wait, the penalty was awarded.”To be a part of those celebrations is fantastic.”Here’s a word from Ole #MUFC pic.twitter.com/gkzhr6z8fyManchester United (@ManUtd) March 6, 2019England striker Rashford, who had never taken a penalty in a competitive game for United, kept his nerve during the long delay to smash it past Buffon.PSG desperately pushed for the goal that would have sent them through in a further four minutes of play but United held firm and celebrated wildly with their fans when the whistle sounded.In contrast, the stunned home players sunk to the ground in disbelief at a near-silent stadium.”It is very hard to lose, very hard to accept,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel, the latest to fail to deliver the European glory the club’s Qatari owners have invested so much to achieve.advertisement”If you lose a game like this it’s horrible and cruel because we did not deserve to go out after those 180 minutes.”Also Read | Real Kashmir FC insist on playing rematch against Minerva Punjab in SrinagarAlso Read | Changes in football rules: No time wasting during substitution, handball to be punishedFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

19 October 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today vowed that today’s attack on a United Nations convoy in Iraq would not deter the Organization from continuing its efforts to assist the Iraqi people on their path to reconciliation and prosperity. The convoy was carrying Mr. Ban’s Special Representative for Iraq Ad Melkert, his Deputy Special Representative Jerzy Skuratowicz and the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) staff. All UN staff escaped without injury in the attack, which occurred in Najaf, but a member of the Iraqi security forces was killed and several others injured.“The Secretary-General sends his condolences to the family of the deceased and wishes a speedy recovery to those injured,” a statement issued by his spokesman said. Mr. Ban expressed his appreciation to Mr. Melkert and all UNAMI staff, “who are working under difficult circumstances to implement the mandate of the United Nations in Iraq.“This attack will not deter the UN from continuing its efforts to assist the Iraqi people on their path to reconciliation and prosperity,” the statement concluded.
