(Photo by Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images)The Auburn Tigers were hardly expected to walk into Tuscaloosa and beat the Crimson Tide on the road, but to lose 52-21 in a blowout may have taken some of the wind out of their sails.Unfortunately, with a 7-5 record on the season, they’re not going to be playing in one of the truly special bowl games like the Peach Bowl or Sugar Bowl.Luckily for the Tigers, they secured their spot in a bowl game weeks ago and now have plenty of options.The Birmingham Bowl, Texas Bowl, Music City Bowl, Independence Bowl, Belk Bowl, Liberty Bowl, Gator Bowl, and Outback Bowl are all on the table for SEC teams.CBS Sports analyst Jerry Palm thinks that we’ll see Auburn taking on Iowa State in the Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl.Meanwhile, Eric Single of Sports Illustrated has Auburn slated to play Big Ten title game participant Northwestern in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl.Finally, College Football News has Auburn taking on Temple in the Birmingham Bowl.The Auburn Tigers are 1-4 in bowl games under current head coach Gus Malzahn. Auburn’s last bowl win came in 2015, with a Birmingham Bowl win over Memphis.last_img read more

Over half of Irish adults only visit dentist in emergency

first_img75 per cent of people do not avail of free dental check-ups>Fran from Love/Hate explains how they created the toothless effect> PREVENTION IS BETTER than cure but that old maxim appears to be losing traction for Irish people and their dental health.A survey for the Irish Dental Association, carried out by Behaviour and Attitudes, finds that 46 per cent of Irish people are spending less on dental health than they did three years ago – and 41 per cent of people surveyed rarely, if ever, think of visiting the dentist.Even more worryingly, 58 per cent of people will not visit the dentist until they have a dental crisis and need emergency treatment. Most Irish adults believe that their teeth and gums are healthy (four out of five people) and yet a recent national oral health survey found that 80 per cent of people have some form of gum disease.The cutting of some dental benefits previously provided under PRSI and medical card schemes has had a major impact on the frequency of attendance at dental surgeries, according to the Irish Dental Association (IDA). However, the IDA also pointed the finger at the HSE. IDA chief executive Fintan Hourihan said:The Department of Health needs to reach out to the people who are not attending and encourage them to do so. The cost of preventative treatment will be much less than the cost of the current neglect.Currently, women on a middle income and aged under 44 years are the most likely adult group to visit the dentist annually. Adults over the age of 45 years tend to visit less and less as time goes on. However, we have some loyalty to individual dentists with Irish people, on average, visiting the same dentist for over 11 years.last_img read more
