    Ferris Wheel That Dropped Girls Had Worn Out Rivets

    Six year old Briley Rae Reynolds suffered a traumatic brain injury in the fall from the Ferris Wheel on Monday and her 10 year old sister, Kayla, broke her arm. Kayla and an unidentified 16 year old have been released from the hospital, but Briley Rae remained in critical condition.

    Worn out rivet fasteners on a Ferris wheel are being blamed for an overturned gondola at an eastern Tennessee fair that earlier this week sent three girls plummeting more than 30 feet to the ground.

    The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development announced late Friday that it has renewed permits for the ride's owner, Family Attractions Amusement, to resume operations at other fairs around the state. But the Ferris wheel is excluded from the permit.

    Inspectors hired by the company and the Greene County Fair found that rivets had worn out on the bottom of the tub carrying the girls, allowing a trim piece to come loose and get lodged in the frame of the wheel and tipping the gondola over.

    "Ride NOT safe to operate at time of inspection," Frank Guenthner, an inspector hired by ride owner Family Attractions Amusement, wrote in his report.

    The Ferris wheel, which inspectors say was correctly assembled at the site, is being sent back to the manufacturer for repair.

    Tennessee does not conduct its own inspections of fair or amusement park rides, instead relying on third party inspectors. The company was allowed to operate in the state based on an inspection made in Indiana in June.

    Ezekiel Elliott goes nuclear on Jim Harbaugh

    Ex Buckeyes running back tells Paul Finebaum the Michigan coach 'needs to get in check with reality'

    Ezekiel Elliott has had enough of Michigan coachJim Harbaugh.

    The former Ohio State running back, entering this year's NFL draft, aired his grievances to Paul Finebaum on "The Paul Finebaum Show" today as Harbaugh continues to make headlines, most notably over the satellite camp controversy and his barbs with OSU athletic director Gene Smith.

    "I amtired of hearing about Coach Harbaugh; I thinkhe needs to get in check with reality," Elliott told Finebaum, "because, at the end of the day, you can't talk smack about a rivalry when you haven't won a rivalry game. You got to win ballgames to be able to talk behind it."

    "Well said," Finebaum responded.

    Actually, Harbaugh did beat Ohio State as U M's starting quarterback in 1985 and 1986. ButElliott and the Buckeyes trounced the Wolverines 42 13 last November in their lone meeting with Harbaugh as head coach.

    Elliott, whohasn't been shy about talking smack about U M throughout his college career in Columbus, rushed for 214 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries in that game.

    "That felt like a home game for us," Elliott said. "We had so many Buckeyes there, you know, being in Ann Arbor and the Big House . and hearing the O H I O chantin their house, just was a special moment. And seeing all their fans leave before the game's over, andseeing the red sea in their stadium was one of the top college moments I've had."

    Meanwhile, Finebaum, who's also an analyst for ESPN'sSEC Network, has been one of Harbaugh's biggest critics in recent weeks, calling him "the Donald Trump of college football" and lambasting his off the field antics.

    "What is it about Michigan, Ezekiel Elliott?" Finebaum asked. "They have won, what, one half of a national championship since the '40s, but the coach and the fanbase talk like they are the epicenter of college football."

    Lions QB Kellen Moore proves 'he belongs' in NFL

    MOBILE, Ala. Kellen Moore didn't get on the field duringhis first three years in the NFL but, pressed into action with the Dallas Cowboys late this season, the former Detroit Lions backup gave his fervent fan base plenty to cheer about.

    "He just needed a chance, and he just needs a chance," Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said after Senior Bowl practice Tuesday. "And until you put him out there, you're not going to know. And I think we found out a lot of things about him that prove that he belongs."

    Linehan, aformer Lions offensive coordinator, was instrumental in bringing Moore to Detroit as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State in 2012.

    Moore spent that entire season and each of the next two as the Lions' third quarterbackbut never so much as dressed for a game.

    Moore joined Dallas' active roster after Tony Romo broke his collarbone in a Week 2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, and he made his NFL debut in a 19 16 loss to the New York Jets on Dec. 19.

    In two starts this season, Moore threw for 621 yards,three touchdowns and three interceptions. He had 435 yards passing in the Cowboys' season ending loss to Washington, the seventh best passing day in the NFL this season.

    "Kellen did a great job," Linehan said. "We had four quarterbacks play almost 20% of the playtime this year, which is maybe a first. But he really did. His first start was in Buffalo. They got a great defense. We were actually in great position to win the game, and some things didn't go our way in the fourth quarter. But he played really, really well.

    "We had a rough start to our final game, had some turnovers early. The last three quarters that Kellen played, I was really proud. I think he ended up with maybe one of the six best passing days in Cowboys history, or something like that, in a regular season game, as far as yards and production. For your second start, that's a good start.

    "I think we're excited about his future and moving forward and, now that he's able to get a good off season and training camp with us, hopefully, will give him a little more of a head start. He was having to come in and adjust a lot of things. He did a great job of that."

    1 Ohio State over Minnesota 28

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The quarterback switch? Not so smooth. Everything else? Just good enough to keep Ohio State unbeaten.

    And now, coach Urban Meyer has to decide whether to switch passers again.

    Ezekiel Elliott weaved 15 yards for a touchdown on Ohio State's only lengthy drive, and the top ranked Buckeyes weathered Minnesota's two fourth quarter touchdowns for a 28 14 victory Saturday night.

    Elliott ran for 114 yards his 14th straight 100 yard game and Vonn Bell returned an interception 16 yards for his first career touchdown for a 21 0 lead that held up despite the Gophers' late surge. Barrett was suspended. Meyer said after the game that Barrett will return to practice next week and could get the job back.

    "Offensively we were sloppy and not executing at a high level," Meyer said. "It's not what we expect. We expect to play better."

    Jones knows it. Asked for his assessment of the offense, he said: "Below average."

    Up next for the Buckeyes: A game at Illinois followed by the two teams from the state up north No. 6 Michigan State and No. 16 Michigan.

    Minnesota (4 5, 1 4) managed only 110 yards through three quarters before finally getting Mitch Leidner's two TD passes, the last with 2:10 to go. The onside kick went out of bounds, and Jones ran 38 yards untouched off a fake handoff for a clinching touchdown, catching the Gophers off guard.

    "It was a grind," Buckeyes linebacker Joshua Perry said. "Tough game. We thought they were going to run the ball on us, and they did some other things."

    The Gophers have dropped their last two under interim coach Tracy Claeys, hanging in there until the end against Michigan and Ohio State.

    The Buckeyes' latest quarterback switch ran into problems right away.

    Jones completed Ohio State's surge to the national title last season after Barrett got hurt against Michigan, and he kept the job for the first seven games this season. With the offense inconsistent, Meyer switched back to Barrett, who had three touchdown passes and two scoring runs in a 49 7 victory at Rutgers.

    Barrett was cited for impaired driving during the Buckeyes' off week, drawing a one game suspension from the school.
    Joe Thomas Jersey So Jones was back at quarterback Saturday, but he wasn't effective throwing it. He went 12 of 22 for 187 yards with a touchdown, four sacks and a fumble at the Minnesota 21. He also ran 12 times for 65 yards.

    Jones' 44 yard completion set up a weaving, 15 yard touchdown run by Elliott with 54 seconds left in the half for a 14 0 lead. Ohio State had more yards in that drive (77) than the rest of the half (55).

    Braxton Miller the other quarterback on the Buckeye roster took five snaps and ran each time. He also caught a 45 yard pass. His head hit the ground hard as he was tackled after
    Cody Kessler Jersey the catch, and he had to be helped off the field.

    Bell got Ohio State's first score on a 16 yard interception return that initially was nullified by a targeting penalty. A review indicated there was no targeting and the score stood.

    The Gophers played their second game since coach Jerry Kill retired Oct. 28 because of health issues. In the closing seconds against Michigan last week, Claeys decided to go for it instead of taking a tying field goal, and Leidner was stopped at the 1 to preserve the Wolverines' 29 26 win.
