That doesn’t mean they won’t wonder what could have been had they played better in the snow Saturday against the Badgers. No. 12 Wisconsin grounded No. 8 Minnesota’s best season of the modern era Saturday with a 38-17 thumping that will send the Badgers to the Big Ten title game against Ohio State.The Golden Gophers entered play with one loss. They exited knowing they had squandered their slight chance at reaching the College Football Playoff. Proud Wisconsin alums did not miss the opportunity to go after Minnesota on social media. NFL star J.J. Watt and recent NBA forward Sam Dekker led the charge against the Golden Gophers, calling out coach P.J. Fleck and his “Row the boat” mantra that has at times been derided as a look-at-me approach.The row boat stops here.pic.twitter.com/xmv6iTvMSW— Sporting News (@sportingnews) November 30, 2019MORE: Harbaugh fumes after another loss to Ohio StateWatt posted a “Simpsons” gif of a boat being rowed in a circle.
Kurt Zouma with John Terry 1 Kurt Zouma has expressed his shock at Chelsea’s decision not to offer John Terry a new contract.Terry revealed on Sunday that he is set to end his 18-year Blues career at the end of the season after being informed by the club they will not extend his current deal.According to Zouma, however, the 35-year-old has plenty of years left in him at the top and he believes his central defensive partner will be almost impossible to replace.“I am very surprised – I didn’t know,” Zouma told the London Evening Standard.“Now we have to see what John wants to do because I think he can play for another one or two years.“This feels like when we lost Didier (Drogba) last summer. (Terry) is a huge personality at Chelsea. When you lose these kind of players, you have to replace them but I don’t know how John can be replaced. We have to think about it.“For me he can play many more times. He is still at a top level. He has been playing very well since I arrived at Chelsea. He can continue for sure.“His performances have been consistent. Since I have been at the club, I haven’t seen him play badly. That’s the truth. He was always helping everybody.“He has been a massive support to me. When I started my first games last year he was always talking to me. He is a legend and a very good leader. I have learnt a lot from him. I don’t know what to say, I am very surprised.”Despite Terry’s revelation on Sunday, Chelsea have publicly insisted that the veteran defender could still be offered a new deal.The club have yet to appoint a permanent successor to Jose Mourinho and the new boss could decide they want to keep Terry.
