first_imgTommy Tuberville yells at a fan during a Cincinnati game.Twitter/@KJMSingletonTommy Tuberville is not having a great year at Cincinnati, and he took out his frustrations on a taunting fan after today’s loss to BYU.The Bearcats are 4-5 on the season, with four double-digit losses in their last five games. The program, and school, were shut out of joining the Power Five, with the Big 12 deciding against expansion. Tensions are high at Cincinnati, as evidenced by a verbal spat between Tuberville and a fan in the stands following the 20-3 loss to the Cougars.WCPO reporter Keenan Singleton caught the back-and-forth on video. It’s hard to tell what was said to Tuberville, though it sounds like the fan says that Tuberville is “stealing from the university.” The veteran head coach responds with “go to hell” and “get a job.”Frustrated Tommy Tuberville vs a frustrated fan after #UC loss to #BYU. .@WCPO pic.twitter.com/L6anZFpkVV— Keenan Singleton (@KJMSingleton) November 6, 2016We’re not sure how Tommy Tuberville can discern this fan’s employment situation, but everyone involved could probably use a win soon.According to USA Today, Tuberville is the 52nd-highest paid head coach in the nation at $2.2 million per year.Cincinnati ends the season with a trip to UCF, a home game against Memphis, and a trip to Tulsa. There is a very strong chance that Tuberville finishes the season below .500, which would be the first team he has done that since 2011 at Texas Tech. Tuberville has just four losing seasons in his 20 full years as head coach, a career that includes stops at Ole Miss, a long tenure at Auburn, and three years at Texas Tech. He is in his fourth season at the helm of the Bearcats.last_img read more

first_img FOR BROADCAST ONLY: A new heating system at Perennia Innovation Centre in Bible Hill will encourage Nova Scotia farmers to produce green energy, increasing their profits and helping protect the environment. The system can burn grass pellets and will serve as a pilot project to show how this renewable energy source can be used. Agriculture Minister John MacDonell says that with lots of pasture and a climate that’s ideal for growing grass, Nova Scotia can be a leader in growing grass for energy production. As part of government’s capital plan, the Department of Agriculture is investing 787-thousand dollars to construct a building next to the centre for the heating system. Establishing a market for grass pellets will help spur economic growth and create good jobs in rural Nova Scotia. -30- A new heating system at Perennia Innovation Centre in Bible Hill will encourage Nova Scotia farmers to produce green energy, increasing their profits and helping protect the environment. The system can burn grass pellets and will serve as a pilot project to show how this renewable energy source can be used. Establishing a market for grass pellets will help spur economic growth and create good jobs in rural Nova Scotia. “Agriculture is the backbone of rural Nova Scotia, and we need to think about and do things differently to grow this industry and our economy,” said Agriculture Minister John MacDonell. “That’s why we’re helping develop a green energy niche market and giving farmers an option to supplement their income. It’s a win-win.” As part of government’s capital plan, the Department of Agriculture is investing $787,200 to construct a building next to the centre for the heating system. A tender will be issued for a grass pellets supplier. “With lots of pasture and a climate that’s ideal for growing grass, Nova Scotia can be a leader in growing it for energy production,” said Mr. MacDonell. “Capitalizing on our natural advantage is the kind of innovation that will ensure Nova Scotia’s agriculture industry is strong, profitable, and sustainable.” Nova Scotia has 40,000 hectares of pasture that could quickly be developed to produce 360,000 tonnes of grass pellets per year. This could add about $36 million annually to the agriculture industry. “At our grass pellet plant in Lawrencetown, we are sourcing local hay, processing it locally, and supplying local markets,” said Jonathan McClelland, general manager of West Nova Agro Commodities. “We’re creating new markets for small and medium-sized farms while providing an affordable, green heating fuel to customers.” This is the third straight year the province will release the capital plan before the spring budget. This sends a clear signal of what the province intends to do in the year ahead, and gives the private sector greater opportunity to prepare for projects, creating efficiencies and cost savings for the province.last_img read more
