Geistlinger & Hayes: Everything you need to know about Saturday’s CFB lineup

first_imgNow that the halfway point in the 2016-17 NCAA College Football season has come and gone, The Badger Herald Sports section is happy to introduce a weekly double feature that highlights the biggest games outside of Madison each Saturday.For any fellow College Football junkies out there, feel free to chime in and tweet any questions, comments or requests to @BHeraldSports for the column going forward.Football: No. 11 Wisconsin hosts No. 7 Nebraska as budding rivalry returns to MadisonAlthough the University of Wisconsin and the University of Nebraska football teams have met only 10 times in the program’s Read…No. 7 Nebraska (7-0) at No. 11 Wisconsin (5-2)Where: Camp Randall Stadium, Madison, WisconsinWhen: 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29TV: ESPN (Channel 660 on Residence Hall Cable) / WatchESPNLine: Wisconsin (-9.0)Since the University of Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011, its football team has faced University of Wisconsin five times. The Badgers have won four of those games by an average of 26.75 points. The Cornhuskers have not faired well in Madison. Their lone win was a 30-27 advantage in Lincoln during the 2012 season. Nebraska’s last three Big Ten games have come against teams boasting a combined 3-9 record in conference play. Their masquerade as an undefeated team ends in Madison this weekend.Geistlinger: Wisconsin 34, Nebraska 13Hayes: Wisconsin 24, Nebraska 19No. 3 Clemson (7-0) at No. 12 Florida State (5-2)Where: Doak Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee, FloridaWhen: 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 TV: ABC (Channel 607 in Residence Halls) / WatchESPNLine: Clemson (-4.0)The last few seasons have seen this game quickly blossom into a decisive brawl for ACC bragging rights, and the winner of this matchup has appeared in two of the last three national championships. Last season’s game was dead even through the third quarter, but Clemson University star quarterback Deshaun Watson and his fourth-quarter heroics gave the Tigers a 10-point edge by the final whistle. Florida State University has been too inconsistent to warrant a four-point cover from me. Clemson will win it, and Watson will have a defining performance for his stock in the race for the Heisman Trophy.Geistlinger: Clemson 27, Florida State 20Hayes: Clemson 31, Florida State 17Football: UW still searching for definitive starting five on offensive lineUnofficially, the University of Wisconsin football team used at least four different offensive line combinations during Wisconsin’s 17-9 win over Read…No. 4 Washington (7-0) at No. 17 Utah (6-1)Where: Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City UtahWhen: 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29TV: FS1 (Channel 672 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Washington (-11.0)Many prominent college football analysts are trying to convince everyone in the central and eastern time zones that the University of Washington is a playoff-caliber team with a Heisman candidate in quarterback Jake Browning. For the most part, there is no choice but to believe this as most of us in the central and eastern zones don’t prefer to watch Pac-12 games with 10:30 p.m. kickoffs. At 7-0, Washington has rebounded from an embarrassing start to the season after defeating Rutgers University by only 35 points in Week 1. This line seems like it should probably be closer to two touchdowns.Geistlinger: Washington 45, Utah 21Hayes: Washington 34, Utah 28Geistlinger’s Upset Alert: No. 14 Florida (7-0) at Georgia (6-1)Where: EverBank Field, Jacksonville, FloridaWhen: 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29TV: CBS (Channel 603 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Florida (-8)This SEC matchup between the University of Georgia and the University of Florida will be played at EverBank field, the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Georgia’s keys to victory lie in the hands of junior running back Nick Chubb and his ability to take pressure off of 18-year-old and true-freshman quarterback Jacob Eason. Thanks to things like miracle Hail Mary passes from University of Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs, close games have been cruel to Georgia this season. But I think this week the Bulldogs will conquer those demons and get over the hump against the Gators in a close one Saturday.Geistlinger: Georgia 28, Florida 27Football: No. 10 Wisconsin brings back Heartland Trophy to Madison with 17-9 win over IowaIt appeared Bart Houston had been discarded, cast away for the younger, more exciting option with an eye toward the Read…Hayes’ Upset Alert: No. 15 Auburn (5-2) at Ole Miss (3-4)Where: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Oxford, MississippiWhen: 6:15 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29TV: WatchESPN (Streaming Only) / SEC NetworkLine: Auburn (-4.0)I think Auburn University stunned most of the country last Saturday with their 56-3 beatdown over the University of Arkansas at Jordan-Hare, but I am not sold on these Tigers just yet. On top of that, Vaught-Hemingway Stadium is no easy venue either. Just look at the way the Rebels have challenged Auburn’s in-state rival and national powerhouse No. 1 University of Alabama during their last two visits. I’m taking Mississippi at home in The Grove.Hayes: Ole Miss 34, Auburn 21last_img read more

Trade liberalization has boosted Latin American and Caribbean Economies

first_imgMIAMI, Florida – Latin America and the Caribbean region saw faster economic and wage growth thanks to a lowering of trade barriers, a new report by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) shows.The study also provides policy recommendations to ensure the region is better positioned to take advantage of trade liberalization and make its benefits more tangible to citizens.The average tariff cut of 56 percent that took place in the region between 1990 and 2010 accelerated the region’s average annual per capita GDP growth by 0.6 percent. While the results are positive, the region harbors skepticism on the benefits of more openness, in part because initial expectations were so high, according to Trading Promises for Results: What Global Integration Can do for Latin America and the Caribbean.“Trade liberalization did not turn out to be the silver bullet that put us in the same growth leagues as some top-performing Asian economies,” said IDB Chief Economist Eric Parrado. “However, trade has clearly been a positive contribution for the region’s wellbeing and development, and we should resist temptations to return to our closed economic policies of decades past.”The book was edited by IDB researchers Ernesto Stein and Mauricio Moreira. Trading Promises for Results is part of the annual Development in the Americas (DIA) flagship research publications series that provides analysis and advice to policymakers on key development topics.The report also looked at the level of support for free trade. Latin Americans back more trade by big margins though support drops sharply when presented with information emphasizing negative consequences such as job losses in vulnerable sectors. The IDB commissioned Latinobarometro to undertake a survey and carry out an experiment to better understand how framing affects perceptions about trade.Almost three out of every four of those surveyed said they favored increasing trade with other countries, with support running highest in Venezuela, Honduras and Uruguay. Almost six out of every ten Latin Americans equate trade with more jobs. However, providing information about potential job losses in vulnerable sectors reduced support for trade to 46 percent, from 73 percent.Making trade work betterWhile liberalization is positive for the economy, it does have winners and losers, with special interest groups linked to import-competing sectors often blocking trade reforms. The report provides an in-depth look at trade policymaking processes in the region, and the type of institutional architecture that is more likely to lead to good policy outcomes.To make the most of the opportunities afforded by globalization while mitigating risks, governments need to look beyond the traditional agenda of trade agreements, trade facilitation and foreign investment attraction. Policymakers should work on ensuring labor markets are not only more flexible but also provide help for those who lose out to trade to transition to competitive firms and sectors. Policies should be consistent with global integration rather than bolster uncompetitive sectors and firms, and governments should seek successful strategies in sectors such as modern agriculture and services-two sectors with considerable technological progress in which the region has comparative advantages – and not just in manufacturing.“We are moving into a world where competitiveness is determined not just by tariffs but by overcoming regulatory, logistics and information costs, as well as by incorporating new technologies,” said Fabrizio Opertti, manager of the Trade and Integration Sector in the IDB. “We are confident that governments can move into these new frontiers in order to facilitate access to more affordable goods and services, as well as to create new economic opportunities and wellbeing for more citizens.”last_img read more
