CBS Sports‘ Barrett Sallee graded the first year coaches on their regular seasons, including Nebraska football’s Scott Frost.Sallee gave Frost a ‘B’ for the way he bounced back from the 0-6 start to the season.“Six straight losses to open the season didn’t exactly sit well, but the Cornhuskers came on strong late to finish 4-2 and give fans hope.”Of the 12 Power Five hires, only four graded out above Frost. Dan Mullen earned an ‘A’ for lining Florida up for a potential New Year’s Six berth in year one, while Jimbo Fisher got an ‘A-‘ for Texas A&M’s strong effort against top teams like LSU and Clemson.Down in the Group of Five, only two coaches received a higher grade than Frost. His successor at UCF, Josh Huepel, graded out the highest of all with an ‘A+.’ It’s hard to argue, with the Knights going undefeated once again.[CBS Sports]last_img read more

Experts from UN nuclear watchdog agency to visit Iran next week

Last November the head of the IAEA said there is “credible” information that Iran is developing a nuclear weapon and had called on the country to agree to a visit by a high-level team to clarify the nature of its nuclear programme. In a statement issued today in Vienna, where the Agency is based, Director General Yukiya Amano announced the upcoming visit, which will take place from 29 to 31 January. “The overall objective of the IAEA is to resolve all outstanding substantive issues,” said the statement. The team will be led by the Deputy Director General for Safeguards, Herman Nackaerts, and will include the Assistant Director General for Policy, Rafael Grossi. “The Agency team is going to Iran in a constructive spirit, and we trust that Iran will work with us in that same spirit,” said Mr. Amano. Iran has repeatedly stated that its nuclear programme is for the peaceful purpose of providing energy, but many countries contend it is seeking to develop nuclear weapons. The Security Council has imposed four rounds of sanctions against Iran, citing the proliferation risks of its nuclear programme and its continued failure to cooperate with the IAEA. 23 January 2012Experts from the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will visit Iran next week in an effort to resolve outstanding issues related to the country’s nuclear programme, it was announced today. read more
