Diehl and Pakistani Zulfiqar-class frigate PNS Shamsheer.Arunta’s navigating officer, Lieutenant Stuart McPherson enjoyed the opportunity to conduct a replenishment with Walter S. Diehl. With Arunta on Walter S. Diehl’s port side and Shamsheer on her starboard side, both frigates simultaneously refueled from Walter S. Diehl’s bunkers.“Opportunities like this are a great way to gain valuable experience and learn how other navies operate. I look forward to working with both ships again in the future,” Lieutenant McPherson said.On completion of the replenishment Arunta and Shamsheer conducted a set of officer-of-the-watch manoeuvres to provide ship handling experience for the Maritime Warfare Officers in both ships.During her first patrol for Manitou, Arunta has been busy conducting multiple boardings as part of efforts to combat illegal narcotics and weapon smuggling in the region that fund terrorist activities.Arunta also took part in a search and rescue operation off the coast of Socotra, Yemen. The replenishment at sea was vital to ensure Arunta can keep on task for a longer period. Share this article View post tag: Pakistan Navy View post tag: USNS Walter S.

Football: How Jonathan Taylor can take down Heisman favorites

first_imgWhen Jonathon Taylor burst onto the scene back in 2017, it was immediately clear he was the new face of Wisconsin Badger football.Despite his heavy workload and sturdy Big Ten defenses specifically plotting to stop him, he helped spur Wisconsin to a 13-1 record and amassed 1,977 yards on the ground as a freshman, placing him fourth on the University of Wisconsin’s all-time single season rushing leaders.Yet like some of the other backs on that list, namely Melvin Gordon and Montee Ball, Taylor’s accomplishments were pushed to the side as Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield took home the Heisman trophy.In his sophomore campaign, Taylor stepped it up even further on the statline and led the nation with 2,194 rushing yards and added 16 touchdowns to go with it.Despite this, Wisconsin’s lackluster 8-5 record last season, including losses to BYU, Northwestern and Minnesota, made it easy for Heisman voters to dismiss Taylor’s candidacy and again select an Oklahoma quarterback, this time Kyler Murray.Football: BYU shocks UW 24–21 at home, Gaglianone’s last-minute FG sails leftWisconsin’s non-conference schedule had been repeatedly criticized as lenient — no team as good as the Badgers should be facing Read…This year, however, with Jack Coan under center and a plethora of other options like Quintez Cephus, Danny Davis III and A.J. Taylor, the Badgers look as geared up as ever for a postseason run.With that in mind, Jonathon Taylor should have already bought his ticket to New York City for the Heisman ceremony in December.According to Vegas Insider, Taylor currently has the sixth best odds to take home college football’s most prestigious award behind Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts, Ohio State’s Justin Fields and Nebraska’s Adrian Martinez.It’s true — all these guys are worthy candidates. I’ll even go as far as to say each probably has an undergrad writing an article for a student-run newspaper about why they should take home the Heisman Trophy. But just like none of those papers are The Badger Herald, none of those candidates are Jonathon Taylor.Football: Jonathan Taylor, offensive line highlight Big Ten Award recipients from WisconsinDespite an underwhelming regular season overall for the University of Wisconsin football team, the Badger offense was well represented during Read…We’ll start off with the favorites. Alabama quarterback Tagovailoa — who came in second behind Murray’s 517 first-place votes with 299 of his own last year — and Clemson sophomore Lawrence. The two are head and shoulders above the pack when it comes to hype surrounding this season’s award.The lefty gunslinger Tagovailoa seems primed to bring another Heisman to Birmingham after he infamously stole the Tide’s starting job from now Oklahoma Sooner Hurts.Meanwhile, Lawrence’s stellar performances — including leading the Tigers to a victory over Tagovailoa’s Crimson Tide in last year’s national championship as a true freshman — have thrust him into the national spotlight.Admittedly, it’s tough to put anyone over them, even Taylor. But Alabama and Clemson having rosters littered with future NFL draft picks from top to bottom should be something Heisman voters see as a downfall.Both have multiple players like Jerry Jeudy, Najee Harris and Travis Etienne who show up on those same Heisman watch lists, and impact the game in ways that significantly boost their stats.In addition, because Tagovailoa and Lawrence attend two of the most dominant college football schools in recent history, any bad losses or multi-interception big games will see their Heisman odds decrease dramatically.Wisconsin, on the other hand, is an underdog this year relative to the traditional powerhouses. Wins against Michigan, Ohio State and Iowa would almost surely come as a result of big performances from their star running back, potentially vaulting him ahead of the two current favorites.Football: Jonathan Taylor’s record day gives UW 45–14 win over New MexicoWarming up took a few quarters in Madison Saturday, but Wisconsin found their second-half mojo, eventually thrashing New Mexico 45–14. Read…Hurts, Fields and Martinez round out those ahead of Taylor in betting terms. Notice a trend here? That’s right — all five are quarterbacks.And while the Heisman is trending toward being a QB award — only two non-QB winners have won since former Badger Ron Dayne in 1999 — being one of the only running backs with a shot at the award will work as an advantage for Taylor.At least one or two of those guys are going to suffer a bad loss or performance that has the potential to derail their Heisman hopes. Hurts plays for Oklahoma, there’s no way the committee gives out three straight awards to one program, right?Football: Five takeaways from week one of Badger FootballThe Wisconsin Badgers started their season Friday night with a statement 49–0 victory against South Florida. In peak Floridian conditions, Read…Most importantly, Taylor will get a chance to go up against Fields and Martinez on the road. Two conference wins in hostile environments against fellow Heisman candidates would surely have Tagovailoa and Lawrence feeling the pressure.If he can continue to produce at the level he has over the past two years and lead Wisconsin to its first ever College Football Playoff, an essential for just about any Heisman hopeful, Taylor will become the third Heisman Trophy recipient in Wisconsin history.last_img read more
