The latest team to go down: the USF Bulls.South Florida was clinging on to its donut in the “L” column by the skin of its teeth.Earlier in the year, the team narrowly beat Illinois, one of the worst teams in the Big Ten. It needed a lot of luck to get by a one-win Tulsa team two weeks ago, and struggled with one-win UConn last week, eventually winning 38-30.Today was the day it finally all fell apart.Houston knocked off USF football 57-36 in today’s game.Quarterback D’Eriq King absolutely shredded Charlie Strong’s Bulls defense in every facet.He had 419 yards and five touchdowns through the air, and another 132 on the ground, with a pair of scores.The game also featured a very ugly moment on the sideline for the Bulls, with linebacker Khalid McGee charging and shoving assistant coach Blue Adams. The two had to be separated on the sideline.USF having some sideline issues between a player & coach pic.twitter.com/RLuZSu81Vq— CJ Fogler (@cjzer0) October 27, 2018Late in the third quarter, USF’s Blake Barnett tossed a 39-yard touchdown pass to DeAngelo Antoine to cut Houston’s lead to 43-36. From there, Houston finished the game on a 14-0 run.Charlie Strong’s going to need to get his team to regroup after this one.
A woman who helped a peer compile the Animal Welfare Act has admitted a string of cruelty charges involving horses, tropical birds and rabbits.Sara Ross, who was assistant to Lord Houghton when he piloted the protection Bill through the Commons, ill-treated animals at a sanctuary she ran in Buckinghamshire.Some of her staff were so appalled by the condition of the animals that they blew the whistle on her and called in the RSPCA.On Friday 54-year-old Ross appeared before a District Judge and reversed her earlier “not guilty” stance and admitted more than a dozen charges involving abuse and neglect.A co-defendant and former assistant, Hayley Poturici, aged 25 years, accepted a caution from the RSPCA and no evidence was offered against her.After leaving the House of Lords following the death of Lord Houghton of Sowerby, Ross set up her own animal sanctuaries and charity shelters before the mistreatment, including failing to provide shelter and adequate protection, was exposedAmong the list of animals that were neglected were six horses, seven dogs, four cats, four rabbits and nine topical birds ranging from Cockatoos to Macaws.The sentencing of Ross, from Lake End Road, Dorney, Bucks., will take place on Wednesday (June 27).
