Slobodna Dalmacija

Slobodna Dalmacija is a Croatian daily newspaper published in Split. The first issue of Slobodna Dalmacija was published on 17 June 1943 by Tito's Partisans in abandoned stone barn on Mosor, a mountain near Split, occupied by the Italian army during that time; the paper was published in various locations until Split was liberated on 26 October 1944. From the following day onward, Slobodna Dalmacija has been published in Split. Although it was viewed as a Dalmatian regional newspaper, during the following decades Slobodna Dalmacija, grew into one of the largest and most read daily newspapers of Yugoslavia, with its circulation reaching a zenith in the late 1980s. Slobodna Dalmacija owed much of that success to its humour section. Many of the most popular Croatian humourists, like Miljenko Smoje, Đermano Ćićo Senjanović and the trio that founded the Feral Tribune, began their careers there. Another reason for this success was the editorial policy of Joško Kulušić, who used the decline of Communism to allow the paper to become a forum for new political ideas.

In the early 1990s Slobodna Dalmacija established a reputation as the newspaper with the most politically diverse group of columnists - from the extreme left to the extreme right. In 1992, the government initiated proceedings against the paper, which would result in one of the most notorious scandals in recent Croatian history. Slobodna Dalmacija was privatised, which resulted in Miroslav Kutle, a Zagreb businessman, becoming the new owner. After a brief attempt to prevent the handover by strike, the paper was formally taken over in March 1993. After the war ended in 1995, Slobodna Dalmacija was faced with serious financial problems. In the late 1990s the newspaper was again taken over by the government. However, it retained its distinctively hard-line nationalist stance during the first year of Prime Minister Ivica Račan's left-of-center government. In May 2005 Slobodna Dalmacija was reprivatised again; this time it was sold to Europapress Holding. In 2014 it was bought by Marijan Hanžeković along with EPH and became more of a right-wing newspaper.

There have been situations where left oriented journalist were forbidden to write what they want and some were fired. Official website

BYU Cougars men's basketball

The BYU Cougars men's basketball team represents Brigham Young University in NCAA Division I basketball play. Established in 1902, the team has won 27 conference championships, 3 conference tournament championships and 2 NIT Tournaments, competed in 29 NCAA Tournaments, it competes in the West Coast Conference. From 1999–2011, the team competed in the Mountain West Conference. BYU fielded its first basketball team in 1903. In 1906, the Cougars played their first game against Utah State University. In 1909, the team first played against the University of Utah; these two rivalries continue to this day. In its 108-year history, BYU's basketball program has won 1,786 games, ranking 12th among all Division I programs; the Cougars won the first of their 27 conference championships in 1922 as a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The Cougars would make the first of their 29 NCAA Tournament appearances in 1950 under legendary head coach Stan Watts; that Cougars came within one point of reaching the national semifinals.

BYU's 1951 team was more successful, winning 28 games and once again qualifying for the NCAA Tournament. In addition, the 1951 team won the first of two NIT championships for the school; the Cougars defeated AP # 10 St. Louis and AP # 13 Dayton to win the title. Notable players on that team include: Mel Hutchins, taken #2 in the 1951 NBA draft, was named the 1951–52 NBA co-rookie of the year and became a 5-time NBA All-Star with the Pistons and the Knicks. Dunn, a future general authority in the LDS Church; the Cougars would go on to make five more appearances in the NCAA Tournament under Watts, win their second NIT championship in 1966, although by that time the overall prestige of the NIT had fallen considerably. BYU has the most NCAA appearances of any men's team not to make the Final Four. Under Watts, BYU became the first U. S. college basketball program to include an international player on its roster, as Finland native Timo Lampen debuted in the 1958–59 season. BYU's Krešimir Ćosić, born in Yugoslavia, became the first international player to be named an All-American.

His jersey was retired in the Marriott Center in March 2006 in the last home game of the season against the New Mexico Lobos. Watts retired as the winningest coach in BYU history. After Watts' retirement following the 1972 season, the program experienced five consecutive losing seasons from 1974 through 1978 before returning to the NCAA Tournament in 1979 behind Danny Ainge and coach Frank Arnold; the Cougars reached the Elite Eight, one game short of the Final Four, in 1981, Ainge's senior season. That season, Ainge won the Wooden Award as the nation's most outstanding player. Arnold left following the 1983 season and was replaced by LaDell Andersen, who had several successful seasons in the 1980s, including the 1987–88 season when the Cougars rose as high as #2 in the national rankings on their way to a 26–6 season. Andersen resigned following a 14–15 season in 1989, he was replaced by Roger Reid, who guided the Cougars to 20-win seasons in each of his first six years and five NCAA Tournament appearances.

Reid was fired in the middle of the 1996–97 season after a 1–6 start. Part of his firing had to do with a private comment Reid made to Chris Burgess considered the top high school player in the nation and a Mormon whose father had attended BYU. Assistant coach Tony Ingle coached the team on an interim basis for the rest of the season and did not win a game. Following the season, Steve Cleveland was hired as the new head coach and returned the Cougars to prominence. In 2001, the Cougars won the MWC regular season and tournament championships, making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1995. After the 2004–05 season, Cleveland resigned to become the head coach at Fresno State. Dave Rose, co-captain of the University of Houston's 1983 "Phi Slama Jama" college basketball team, began the first of six straight 20-win seasons in 2005–06. Rose and assistant Dave Rice continued BYU's successful recruiting with the addition of All-American Jimmer Fredette in 2007 and DeMarcus Harrison in 2011.

In June 2009, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and returned to coaching that year. In 2010, Rose coached BYU to their first NCAA tournament victory in 17 years in a double-overtime win against the University of Florida; the following year, BYU made further inroads as a #3 seed when they advanced to the Sweet 16. On March 13, 2012, BYU set a record for the largest comeback in a NCAA tournament game, as they were down by 25 points at one point in their first match of the 2012 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament and came back to beat the Iona Gaels 78–72. Following Tyler Haws' departure for an overseas professional career, Kyle Collinsworth became the Cougar's recognized leader, setting the NCAA record for career triple doubles and earning WCC Player of the Year honors as a senior. Since Collinsworth's departure, the Cougars have struggled in the postseason--BYU has not appeared in the NCAA tournament since 2014; the program was dealt an additional blow when the NCAA announced penalties against the Cougars due to an alleged benefits scandal surrounding shooting guard Nick Emery.

As part of those sanctions, BYU was ordered to vacate all victories where Nick Emery played over two seasons. The BYU athletics department has appealed the decision. An official BYU athletics department statement read in part, “The vacation-of-records pe
