Joe Burrow Has Brutally Honest Assessment Of Vanderbilt Game

first_img Breaking records and dropping 66 points on an SEC opponent would indicate that Burrow played well. And yet, the talented signal-caller thinks it was his worst performance of the year.“I think that was probably the worst game I’ve played so far. I don’t want to say bad game since I still played very well, but I played better in the first three. So, I have some things to correct just like we all do as an offense. Through my first four games I’ve played very well and I’m just going to try and get better every day.”Burrow said the real issue for him last Saturday was that he held the ball for too long.#LSU quarterback Joe Burrow said his record-breaking performance against Vanderbilt was his “worst” game this season. pic.twitter.com/2ThX2N93ba— Brooks Kubena (@BKubena) September 25, 2019Since LSU currently has its bye week, the team has time to add new wrinkles into its offensive scheme.It’s hard to envision Burrow playing even better, but it’d also be foolish to dismiss that possibility.LSU is back in action on Oct. 5 against Utah State.

first_imgKolkata: Indian Museum is going to celebrate 200 years of discovery of Ajanta paintings by organising a lecture and a symposium in the month of July. The main objective of the programme is to discuss on how these paintings can be conserved in a more effective manner.”Ajanta paintings has had a major influence upon the Bengal School of Art. Sister Nivedita, Nandalal Bose, Abanindranath Tagore, E.B. Havell, Asit Kumar Halder are some of the big names who have been influenced by the Ajanta paintings. How Calcutta is connected with Ajanta will also be the highlight of the discussion,” said Rajesh Purohit, Director of Indian Museum.

The main colours used were— red ochre, yellow ochre, brown ochre, lamp black, white and lapis lazuli (blue). Problem started when French and Italian conservators carried out renovation of the paintings mistaking these as fresco paintings. “A number of paintings were destroyed and in 1863 the Archeological Survey Of India studied the paintings and did necessary treatment for restoration of the paintings which are actually tempera paintings,” Purohit said.

There is also water stagnation on the top of the cave as there is vegetation and roots of the trees are also penetrating into and destroying the cave. The museum director said that inflow of tourists is a big problem and visitors should be sent in groups and not randomly inside the cave. “The humidity level goes up with respiration of so many tourists inside the cave and this impacts the pigments in the paintings and a layer of dust and moisture deposit upon them. Experts will share their opinion on conservation,” he maintained. Ajanta is a world heritage site as per UNESCO. It was on April 28 1819, a British officer named John Smith, of the 28th Cavalry, while hunting tigers, “discovered” the entrance to Cave No. 10 when a local shepherd boy guided him to the location and the door. Captain Smith went to a nearby village and asked the villagers to come to the site with axes, spears, torches, and drums, to cut down the tangled jungle growth that made entering the cave difficult. He then vandalised the wall by scratching his name and the date over the painting of a bodhisattva. The Ajanta Caves are approximately 30 rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE to about 480 CE in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra. The caves include paintings and rock-cut sculptures described as among the finest surviving examples of ancient Indian art.last_img read more
