Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest For the second year in a row, Ohio State Fair visitors concocted creative names for the 2015 iconic butter cow and calf, with Champ and Sugar selected as the winning names.Picked from hundreds of entries, the American Dairy Association Mideast named MollyWickham from Columbus the name game competition winner, awarding her with a Go Pro HERO LCD camera.Wickham’s entry, Champ and Sugar, was chosen because it captured the spirit of the display, giving a nod to the Ohio State Buckeye’s win in the Sugar Bowl and their victory in the first-ever College Football Playoff national championship.During the competition, which ran from the start of the fair on Wednesday, July 29 through Sunday, Aug. 9, fairgoers had the opportunity to submit names for the iconic pair via Twitter by following @OHDairyFarmers and using the hashtag #ButterCowNameGame.Other contestants milked the 2015 butter sculpture’s Ohio State Buckeye football theme,spreading Ohio pride with names like, “Urban Mooer and Shelly Mooer,” “Cowdale Jones and Braxton Mooler,” “Woody and Urb,” and “Buckeye and Little Nut.” Other notable entries included “Stick and Pat,” “Curds and Whey,” and “Yo and Gurt.”The naming contest dates back to the early 1980s, during which fairgoers would drop hand-written names into a large wooden milk carton. Last year, the contest moved from tear pads to Twitter.

It would be possible if they didn’t ask for €70m,” Monchi told Gazzetta dello Sport.“For me he’s a good player, but he plays for Genoa. Tonali’s one of the best youngsters in Italian football, but I could say the same about Barella.“[Gianluca] Mancini? Right now it’s impossible, but in the summer it’s different. Rugani? Impossible, Juventus rejected a €40m bid from Chelsea and we can’t spend so much on a central defender.”
FAYETTEVILLE, AR – NOVEMBER 27: Head Coach Bret Bielema of the Arkansas Razorbacks on the sidelines during a game against the Missouri Tigers at Razorback Stadium Stadium on November 27, 2015 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The Razorbacks defeated the Tigers 28-3. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)Arkansas upset Ole Miss this afternoon by the score of 53-52 in overtime. The game-winning series for the Razorbacks featured a ridiculous lateral on 4th-and-25. In the post-game press conference, a giddy Bret Bielema misspoke in hilarious fashion. Intending to say he was “looking forward to hopping on a plane with my wife,” Bielema instead blurted out “I was looking forward to hopping on my wife.” He quickly caught himself and laughed it off before finishing his presser. You can hear the media and those in the background laughing as well. The full clip is below.bret bielema, ladies and gents pic.twitter.com/294ySnhBs9— El Flaco (@bomani_jones) November 8, 2015Bielema always seems to keep things interesting. His team is now 5-4, and the Razorbacks seem to be in good position to qualify for a bowl.
