Besides, this new method still prevails over the former BCS standings.Although Alabama and Clemson clearly separated from the rest of the teams in the country, it would’ve been hard to shun an undefeated Notre Dame roster.Well, the old regime would’ve forced the Fighting Irish to watch the championship from their couch. Even though the simulated standings mirrors the current playoff picture, the past format only gave two teams the chance to compete for the title.Here is the updated BCS rankings for the 2018 season:Here it is, the final simulated #BCS rankings of the 2018 season, Oklahoma just sneaks by Georgia for No. 4, mirroring the choices of the @CFBPlayoff: pic.twitter.com/wm99Mo6I6K— BCSKnowHow.com (@BCSKnowHow) December 2, 2018It’s interesting to see that Ohio State falls behind Georgia in both rankings, regardless of its recent conference championship.The BCS score between the Bulldogs and the Sooners is intriguing, as the two programs were close in the eyes of this system.Do you believe the committee got it right this season?last_img read more

MR fears Hybrid Court still a possibility following Zeid visit

Posted on

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says the idea of a Hybrid Court to investigate Sri Lanka is still alive, especially following the visit of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein to Sri Lanka.Speaking to reporters at the Tangalle beach today, Rajapaksa said that if the military did not end the war then Zeid would not have visited Sri Lanka. “That means the entire military will have to face the consequences,” he said. Rajapaksa said that Zeid had made clear that if any soldier is accused of committing a crime during the war then he must be dealt with according to the Resolution on Sri Lanka adopted at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva last year. The former President claimed that no matter what is said to the Sri Lankan public, the reality is that the country has been betrayed to the international community. (Colombo Gazette) read more
