In a statement on Tuesday, the club said the process of finding a buyer will begin “in the next few weeks”. “The income generated will create a fund that will be divided in the following way: a part will go towards a project on COVID-19 driven by the sponsors themselves and the rest will be shared out amongst other projects that are being developed in parallel,” the statement added.Advertisement Barcelona will raise money for the fight against coronavirus by selling the naming rights to their Camp Nou stadium next season for the first time in the club’s history.

The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (13-10, 6-6 Big Ten) followed up their impressive victory over Michigan State with a disappointing loss in the Barn against Minnesota.The Minnesota Gophers dominated the Badgers throughout the entirety of the game Wednesday, winning 70–52. Wisconsin trailed by as much as 22 points and never led in the game.Men’s Basketball: Shorthanded Badgers prevail over No. 14 SpartansThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (13-9, 6-5 Big Ten) picked up a massive 64-63 win over conference foe, Read…The Badgers struggled immensely on the defensive side of the ball, allowing 45 points in the first half alone. The Gophers shot 40.9% from the field and 41% from beyond the arc.Payton Willis set a career-high with 21 points for the Gophers while shooting 70% from the field, including 5-for-7 from 3-point land.Wisconsin will need stronger production from their bench moving forward if they want to finish the year strong. Last night, both Trevor Anderson and Brevin Pritzl went scoreless off the bench.On top of that, Brad Davison returned from a one-game suspension and struggled playing in his home state. Davisson did not convert a field goal and finished with four points, all from the free-throw line.With the loss, the Badgers fall to 2-4 against unranked Big Ten opponents, continuing a string of inconsistent games in conference play. But, the Badgers have been impressive against ranked Big Ten teams with a 4-2 record, including the win over No. 14 Michigan State Saturday night.The Badgers dropped to a tie for seventh place in the Big Ten standings with a 6-6 record. Both the Purdue Boilermakers (13-10, 6-6) and the Minnesota Gophers (12-10, 6-6) are sporting the same 6-6 record but sit ahead in the standings due to head-to-head victories over Wisconsin.The only thing keeping the Badgers in the conversation for a March Madness bid is their six Quadrant 1 wins. But with a 13-10 record, the pressure is building and their final eight games are becoming must-win games, especially with games they should win ahead and five home games still left on the schedule.Men’s Basketball: Kobe King announces departure from UW basketball programRedshirt sophomore guard Kobe King has announced his intentions to depart the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program in a Read…Wisconsin will have just three days rest before returning to the Kohl Center for a date with the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Unfortunately for Wisconsin, Kobe King is no longer on the team after announcing his departure from the program, meaning Wisconsin will need to find production elsewhere.Tip-off between the Badgers and Buckeyes is set for 12 p.m. Sunday at the Kohl Center.

When I was a kid, I had this rule: “Never leave in the middle of a baseball game.” I may have had my rule, but my dad had the car keys.So it was in 1969 that we left a perfectly good doubleheader in Anaheim because my dad wanted to get home to see man’s first steps on the moon. As if that would never happen again.And so it was we attended a Giants doubleheader the following year at Candlestick Park on a bitter, wind-blown day. The first game went 13 innings and four hours.

PASADENA, CA – JANUARY 01: A B-2 Stealth Bomber flys over before the 2018 College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Oklahoma Sooners at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2018 in Pasadena, California. (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)The song is surely burned into the memory of every college football fan. So much so that one likely can’t listen to the lyrics without thinking about Ohio State or Oregon or Florida State or Alabama or ESPN. Some legends are told, some turn to dust or to gold But you will remember me, remember me for centuriesIt’s Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries” and it was the theme song of the inaugural College Football Playoff. It was played an insane amount of times during the two semifinal games and the championship game. How many times, exactly? According to the Reddit user, Emperor_of_Orange, 45 times – 10 times in the Rose Bowl, 18 times in the Sugar Bowl and 17 times in the CFB Playoff National Championship Game. Here it is for hopefully one, final time.

What is surprising is that it’s the most impressive draft class in modern history. At the most basic level, there were just a lot of Buckeyes taken in the draft. Twelve Ohio State players were selected during the 2016 NFL draft, the 25th time a school has had such a distinction. And, in fact, it’s the fourth time Ohio State has sent at least a dozen players to the pros via the NFL draft:But although Ohio State was not exactly hurting in the quantity department, the quality of those picks sets the team apart. Consider, for example, that although the Texas Longhorns had 17 players drafted in 1984, eight of those players were selected with the 180th pick or later; conversely, all 12 Ohio State players were selected in the first four rounds, with Jones being the last pick at number 139. Using the draft value chart, which assigns the average marginal approximate value produced by each draft pick, we can give more weight to the best picks to provide a more accurate measure of class strength. Here is how many points of draft value were used on each Ohio State player in the 2016 draft: 1950Minnesota13 Total 1987Miami (FL)7108.1 2006Ohio State9111.5 WRMichael Thomas4710.1 WRBraxton Miller856.3 YEARSCHOOLPICKS FSVonn Bell618.4 Using this methodology, the best draft class between the 1970 merger and this year came out of Miami in 2004. And yet this class beat that mark by 31.7 percent! That Hurricanes draft was great, with Sean Taylor (fifth overall), Kellen Winslow Jr. (sixth), Jonathan Vilma (12th), D.J. Williams (17th), Vernon Carey (19th) and Vince Wilfork (21st) all selected in the first round. But after those six players, Miami didn’t have another player drafted until the seventh round. By contrast, the Buckeyes had five first-round picks, two more in the second round, three in the third and two more in the fourth. As a result, it stands out as the most impressive draft class in modern history.

In his first season, the Buckeyes went 12-0, although the team was ineligible for a bowl game or postseason play. In 2013, the team began 12-0 again before being upset by Michigan State in the Big 10 championship game. Two seasons ago, Ohio State won the national championship, going 12-1 in the regular season and defeating Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon in the postseason behind third-string quarterback Cardale Jones. And last season, Ohio State’s only loss came as time expired against Michigan State in late November.
