LEXINGTON, Ky. Micro g Torch Under Armour . -- Thousands of people joined Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay at a candlelight vigil Monday night on a Kentucky high school track honoring Gays 15-year-old daughter, who was fatally shot over the weekend.Gay stood on the track at Lexingtons Lafayette High School where he and daughter Trinity excelled and he thanked people for showing support after the girls death early Sunday after gunfire erupted outside a restaurant in that city. The teens mother, Shoshana Boyd, also was present amid the crowd honoring her memory.I want you guys to love each other, have peace and protect each other, said Gay, who added that he was numb from crying over her death. Thats what Trinity would have wanted. ... Life is not a joke.Many in the crowd wore pink and purple -- Gays favorite colors -- with some holding balloons of those same hues that were later released into the air. Several pairs of track spikes hung from a fence along with a baton that said In Memory of Trinity.Three men charged in connection with the shooting pleaded not guilty Monday and face an Oct. 25 court date. The three appeared via video before Fayette County, Kentucky, District Court Judge T. Bruce Bell.Bell set bail at $5,000 each for Chazerae Taylor, 38, and his son, DMarkeo Taylor, 19, on wanton endangerment charges. Dvonta Middlebrooks, 21, is charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. His bail was set at $12,500.Bell will assign attorneys for two of them. The younger Taylor already has a lawyer.Lexington police say Middlebrooks was in the parking lot of the Cook Out restaurant early Sunday and fired multiple shots in the incident in which Trinity Gay was shot. Court records said the Taylors acknowledged firing shots.Police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said police dont believe Trinity Gay was in either of two vehicles involved.Gay told The Associated Press on Monday evening that in talking with police, he believed his daughter was an innocent bystander. But he said authorities didnt reveal details of their investigation.Tyson Gay said he and his daughter were very close, according to Lexington TV station WLEX, which spoke to him Sunday.Its so crazy. I have no idea what happened, Gay told the station.Grief counselors also went to the Lexington high school Monday for students and staff, Fayette County Public Schools spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall said. Years ago, Gay had attended the same school as his daughter. Trinity Gay was a standout sprinter, placing in the top five in several events at the state championships in May. Her father still holds the state record in the 100 set in 2001.Lafayette principal Bryne Jacobs, teacher Rhonda Mullins and girls track coach Crystal Washington all described Trinity Gay as friendly and outgoing. She dreamed of becoming a surgeon.She was full of energy and life, said Mullins, who had Gay in family and consumer science classes along with the Future Educators of America club. She was a kid that everybody wanted to teach.Jacobs said Trinity Gays mother, who also attended Lafayette, had thanked him for support from the school and community, and noted that Trinitys life was something to celebrate.Our hearts are burdened that she is not in our building anymore, Jacobs said.The emotions flowed before, during and after a candlelight vigil on the track where Trinity Gay excelled. Tyson Gay hugged Shoshana several around him.Many others hugged and cried, but Jerome Brown, 16, held his feelings for his former teammate in check. I dont want to cry, but it hurts a lot, said Brown, who ran with Trinity Gay since she was 9. I wanted to come here for her mom. With Trinity, when she was on the track, it was home.Tyson Gay competed in the last three Summer Olympics. He was part of a team that won a silver medal in the 4x100-meter relay at the 2012 London Games, though that medal was ultimately stripped after Gay tested positive for steroids in 2013.Last summers Games in Rio featured another stinging disappointment for Gay, 33, who has battled injuries. He was a member of the American mens 4x100-meter relay team that finished third in the final before being disqualified for an illegal baton exchange between Mike Rodgers and Justin Gatlin. The teams appeal was denied, giving Canada the bronze medal. UA Scorpio . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. Under Armour Clearance . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). http://www.underarmourshoesireland.com/ . Houston won 3-0 to advance to face New York in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Last in the game, Di Vaio and Romero got into a shoving match with several Houston players. Romero appeared to elbow and kick Houston defender Kofi Sarkodie. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Of all the things on Jacksonvilles lengthy to-improve list, starting faster is near the top of the list.The Jaguars were among the NFLs worst first-quarter teams in 2015. They scored just 35 points in the opening period, second worst in the league behind San Francisco.There were a number of persistent issues, including turnovers, sacks and penalties. Jacksonville also ranked 31st in three-and-outs, failing to move the chains on 38.3 percent of its drives. Throw in a mediocre running game, and the teams sluggish offense early in games was as big a problem as its porous defense.General manager Dave Caldwell did everything he could to fix the defense this offseason. He spent big in free agency and drafted several youngsters to fill holes on that side of the ball. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson and quarterback Blake Bortles, meanwhile, are still working to find a permanent fix to the slow starts.They will get their first chance to show progress Thursday night in the teams preseason opener at the New York Jets.You want to get in a groove and get moving, Bortles said Tuesday. It would be nice to not have to deal with a third down on the first drive. ... Its not a good feeling to go out there for the first possession and everybodys amped up and ready and you go three-and-out, and then you go and repeat and go three-and-out again.Thats what were trying to eliminate. How do we become consistent in moving the chains and being more efficient on third down and staying on the field?Olson talks about it daily and treats each of the 12 practice periods in training camp like the beginning of a new game. So the Jaguars are getting plenty of chances to work on faster starts, but the first real test comes against the Jets.We have to make the layupss, tight end Marcedes Lewis said. Stephen Curry Shoes. Thats one of the things that were missing last year. We had way too many silly things put us in holes. And when were faced with adversity, weve got to be able to punch it in the mouth and keep going. That was our issue, too, last year. If something bad happened, the air was just out of the whole sideline and out of the ball. We cant be like that this year.It should help that the Jaguars have the majority of their offensive starters going into their second season in the same offense. There is no learning curve or transition period like during Olsons first season in Jacksonville.Bortles knows the plays as well as anyone. Tight end Julius Thomas is healthy after playing last season with a broken bone in the back of his right hand. The addition of Chris Ivory should bolster the running game. And with center Brandon Linder back from injury and Kelvin Beachum expected to step in at left tackle, the Jaguars should be better up front.All those factors could help the Jags get out of the gates quicker.Of course, then they will be concerned with sustaining it.Its not just about whether we start super-fast, Lewis said. We just need to play ball. In years past, if we didnt start fast, wed be behind and have no momentum and no idea how to get it back. Now, we have players. Lets just go out there and play ball and not worry about starting fast. If we do start fast, great, but you cant get too high or too low about it. Youve got to stay in that zone and be consistent, and I think well finally be able to do that.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

WASHINGTON -- Even though the Colorado Rockies are all too accustomed to piecing together their lineup because of recent injuries, they were reminded Saturday what happens when their top players are healthy. Bo Jackson Auburn Jersey .Back in the lineup together for the first time since Aug. 17, Charlie Blackmon, DJ LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez combined to drive in six runs on seven hits as the Rockies beat the Washington Nationals 9-4 in 11 innings. Blackmon hit two home runs and Gonzalez his 200th as Colorado snapped a four-game losing streak.Theres nothing like having your horses in there, and it changes the game when youre at full strength, manager Walt Weiss said.NL MVP Bryce Harper was ejected in the 10th inning after getting called out on strikes. The Nationals star outfielder immediately yelled at plate umpire Mike Winters from close range and threw his helmet to the ground after being tossed.It just shouldnt happen, Harper said of Winters third-strike call. Just bad behind there. Its not a strike.After Jorge De La Rosa gave them five solid innings of three-run baseball with eight strikeouts, the Rockies went through plenty of twists and turns to win a game that took 4 hours, 49 minutes to play.Colorado scored a run on a wild pitch during an intentional walk, lost the lead with two outs in the ninth on an RBI single by Jayson Werth off closer Adam Ottavino and roughed up Yusmeiro Petit (3-4) for five runs in the 11th.With LeMahieu back after missing three games with a wrist injury, he and Blackmon combined to go 6 for 11 with three RBI and four runs scored.We missed some guys earlier in the road trip, said Blackmon, who has 23 home runs and five multihomer games. Its always a different lineup when DJs not in there, so to have him back was obviously a real good boost.LeMahieu went 3 for 5 to raise his average to .347 and pass the Nationals Daniel Murphy for the NL batting lead.This guy, hes a professional hitter, said Gonzalez, who hit his 24th home run of the season in the 11th off Petit. He knows how to put great at-bats out there and give everybody an opportunity to drive in runs.OTTAVINO OVEROttavinos streak of not allowing a run ended at 31 1/3 innings on Werths RBI single. Dating to Sept. 6, 2014, its the longest active streak in the majors.Its disappointing, obviously, when he got the hit, but the games over if the next guy gets a hit, said Ottavino, who got Murphy to ground out to send the game to extra innings. Im happy I got that guy out so we were able to do what we did and win the game.WALK THIS WAYNationals starter A.J. Cole allowed a run to score when he threw the ball away when trying to intentionally walk Daniel Descalso in the fourth.I havent seen an intentional walk go awry in a long time, manager Dusty Baker said. They were just going to say, `Take your base intentionally, but thats a reason you know for it not to.It got worse for the Nationals because De La Rosa had an RBI single on the next at-bat, extending his hitting streak to a career-best four games.VAMOS RAMOS SLUMPWith his RBI single in the fourth, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos snapped a 1-for-23 slump. Ramos is the National Leagues best hitting catcher this season.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Weiss said RHP Tyler Chatwood (mid-back strain) will go on a rehab assignment with details still to be determined.Nationals: RHP Joe Ross, who has been out since early July with shoulder inflammation, will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.UP NEXTRHP Chad Bettis (10-7, 5.29 ERA) starts for the second time in 12 days against the Nationals, who will call up RHP Lucas Giolito (0-0, 4.91) to make his fourth career major league start. Isiah Thomas Indiana Jersey . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over Fulham, and Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast clubs impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home. Harry Giles Duke Jersey . Perez, 35, posted a 1-2 record with a 3.69 earned-run average in 19 relief appearances last season. His season ended Aug. 9 due to a torn ligament in his left elbow. Perez joins infielder Andy LaRoche and catcher Mike Nickeas with minor-league agreements for 2014 that include invitations to attend spring training. http://www.soccercheapjerseys.us.com/Bulldogs-10-Jacob-Eason-Red-Player-Fashion-Stitched-Ncaa-Jersey-Xt-85.html . Their experience showed Tuesday as the No. 10 Badgers blunted a Saint Louis surge to win 63-57 and advance to face West Virginia in Wednesdays finals of the Cancun Challenge.AKRON, Ohio -- Phil Mickelson has no doubt what will be most remembered from his career. "It will always be the 04 Masters and showing off my Olympic jumping ability," he cracked of his celebratory hop, which will never be mistaken for Michael Jordan leaving the launch pad. But theres also no question in his mind of what he thinks is his most significant victory. "For me, personally, (winning) the British Open is the greatest accomplishment I could ever get in my career," he said Tuesday, nine days after capturing the claret jug at Muirfield with a stirring final-round flourish. After a week off, preparing on Monday for next weeks PGA Championship and now trying to focus on this weeks Bridgestone Invitational, Mickelson remains stunned that he actually won an event he thought would always be out of his grasp. He still isnt convinced he actually did it. "Im looking forward to in the coming years looking back and remembering Muirfield, remembering the 13 Open and remembering all the things that happened on that back nine," he said during preparations for the Bridgestone Invitational, which begins Thursday. Mickelson always felt an affinity for Augusta National and the Masters, where he won in 2004, 06 and 10. He erased all the speculation of whether he would ever win a major in 2004, when he rolled in the clinching birdie putt on the 18th and "leaped," his spikes barely leaving the ground. "I always knew that I was going to win the Masters because I had played well there for so many years," he said. He also believed he could win a PGA Championship, which he crossed off his list in 2005 at Baltusrol. Sure, there was the lingering heartache of continually being a bridesmaid at the U.S. Open -- a record six times. But at least he was a threat to win it many years. He thought he did this year at Merion. But he was wrong, as were all of those who thought he was a lock to win Americans national championship at some point long before this. "I had something happen to me Sundaay morning of the U. Central Michigan Chippewas Jerseys. S. Open that was really weird," he said in an almost conspiratorial tone. "When I woke up, I had dreamt that I had already won the U.S. Open." He felt euphoria. He felt himself lifting the trophy, the gallery roaring for a long awaited and much anticipated triumph. "It took me over a minute to realize that I havent played the final round and that Ive still got to go out and do it," he said. "And I still have not won it." The British Open, however, was never his cup of Earl Grey. He floundered in the wind and sideways rain, struggled in the heather and high weeds, fell apart while others made late charges. He was seldom even near the leaderboard. But that all changed at Muirfield. Hes still pinching himself. "It was so difficult for me to play my best golf in the British Open under those conditions than any other tournament," he said. "To win that is the greatest accomplishment for me in my career." Now hes trying to focus on whats next, instead of what just happened. Thats not easy, but he shows signs of coming out of his post-Muirfield celebration, just in time for the final major of the year, the PGA at Oak Hill. "Theres an opportunity to add to this year and make it every bit as special as it can be," he said, looking ahead. "I want to make sure I give myself every chance to play well because Ive been playing some of my best golf the last few months." Hes primed to continue it. His close friend and Ryder Cup partner, Keegan Bradley, was joking around with Mickelson a couple of days ago. Bradley is the defending champion of the Bridgestone, and teased Mickelson about the lofty title placed on every British Open champion. "We were double-checking that we were going to play (a practice round at the Bridgestone) on Tuesday, and I said, I know youre the Champion Golfer of the Year, but Ill teach you how to play Akron if you want. He only responded with, I won there when you were 9 years old."

STANFORD, Calif. Nike Roshe One Print Womens Shoe . -- Losing the 2016 NBA Finals might have given the Golden State Warriors a big win.Kevin Durant said Monday night that the Warriors collapse against LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers helped his free-agency decision.[My agent] Rich [Kleiman], whos here, we were watching Game 7, Durant told reporters at a ceremony in which the Warriors were presented with the ENCORE Award from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Well, as it started to unfold, it was, No question, no way could you go to this team. And I was just like a kid, like, Id really like playing with these guys. Id get wide-open 3s, I could just run up and down the court, get wide-open layups. I was basically begging him. I was like, Yo, this would be nice.Durant continued, explaining how his thinking changed as the Finals progressed and the Warriors went from being up 3-1 to losing the title.As they lost, it became more and more real every day, Durant said. You start to think about it even more. To see if I would fit. Then once I sat down with these guys, everything that I wanted to know about them, they kinda showed me. But we dont have to talk about [what would have happened if the Warriors had won the title], because they didnt get the job done, and they came after me.I guess you could say Im glad that they lost.Durant is averaging 18.3 points on 10 shots per game through three games this preseason.The Warriors first regular-season game with their newest All-Star is slated for Oct. 25 at home in Oakland against the San Antonio Spurs. Adidas Gazelle Og Black . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. Cheap Adidas Gazelle Uk . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. http://www.runningshoescheaper.com/adidas-ultra-boost.html . Cote was eligible to become a free agent Feb. 15. Cote helped running back Jon Cornish run for a league-high 1,813 rushing yards en route to being named the leagues most outstanding player. TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban doesnt want No. 1 Alabama taking a step backward in performance no matter the opponent.The Crimson Tide coach paraphrased a well-known movie line to drive that point home leading up to Saturdays game against FCS team Chattanooga.I think that this week the old `Shawshank Redemption statement, youre either busy living or youre busy dying, Saban said. You know, it kind of means youre not going to stay the same. From my perspective, were either going to get better or were going to get worse. Were probably not going to stay the same.The same would probably get it done for the Tide (10-0, No. 1 CFP), which has won 22 straight games and already clinched a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game.Chattanooga (8-2) is the 11th-ranked team in the FCS but now must face a team loaded with NFL prospects.I think everybody knows this is the best team in the country, Mocs coach Russ Huesman said. Our players know they have tremendous players and I know they have tremendous coaches. Very smart people there. Watching film, theyre not only athletic, but they do things right in all phases of the game.The reality is that this game is a respite from Alabama before facing No. 18 Auburn in the Iron Bowl and then heading to the Atlanta to play for the league title and most likely a shot at a third straight playoff berth.FBS teams certainly havent been putting up much fight against the Tide in the last two months. In fact, Alabama has allowed just three points in the last nine quarters dating back to the Texas A&M game, including a 51-3 win over Mississippi State.---Some other things to know about the Chattanooga-Alabama game:STANDING ALONE: With a win, Saban would break a tie with Ohio States Woody HHayes and Florida States Bobby Bowden for the most victories coaching a top-ranked team. Adidas Zx 700 Sale Uk. Saban is 40-5, as is Bowden. Hayes went 40-4-1 with No. 1 teams.PASS RUSHERS: Alabama has some of the SECs top pass rushers in defensive end Jonathan Allen and linebackers Tim Williams and Ryan Anderson. Chattanooga DE Keionta Davis leads the Southern Conference with eight sacks and has 28.5 in his career. It really looks like no one in the country can pass block against that line, Mocs guard Corey Levin said. So well have to try and get the ball out quicker.DEFENSIVE SCORES: Alabama has gone a whopping two games without scoring a non-offensive touchdown, but still leads the nation with 12. Defensive back Lucas Webb has returned three interceptions for touchdowns in his career and Chattanooga has scored a Southern Conference-best 19 defensive touchdowns since Huesman took over in 2009.HOMECOMING: Webb is from suburban Tuscaloosa and is a two-time All-Southern Conference performer. He said hell have some 20 family members at the game. Its a lot different from growing up when youre cheering for them as a team, Webb said. So its a little different when you come in there and want to do your best and try to beat that team.ALABAMAS RIGHT GUARD: Its the only spot in Alabamas lineup with any real uncertainty, since former starter Alphonse Taylor remains out and may not return after missing four games following a concussion. Senior Korren Kirven logged his first start against Mississippi State. Lester Cotton had started the previous three games.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

PORTLAND, Ore. New Balance 996 Uomo . -- Defense was the difference for the Trail Blazers.After struggling for the past half-dozen games, Portland had more of a complete effort in a 119-104 victory over New Orleans on Friday night. Damian Lillard scored 27 points and CJ McCollum added 24 to snap the Pelicans four-game winning streak.I think what we did on the defensive end allowed us to get out in transition and move the ball, and play at the pace that we wanted to be at. It worked in our favor, once we did it consistently, Lillard said.Lillard added 11 assists for the Blazers, who were coming off a 1-4 road trip. It was the 2,000th win in franchise history.Anthony Davis, who went into the game ranked second in the league with an average of 31.3 points a game, led the Pelicans with 31 points and 13 rebounds.The Blazers led by as many as 17 points in the third quarter, but the Pelicans closed to 105-101 on Terrance Jones dunk and Jrue Holidays jumper. Portland responded with an 8-0 run, capped by Maurice Harkless reverse layup that made it 113-101, and New Orleans couldnt catch up.Obviously its really good to get a win, Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. Weve been struggling a little bit. I thought offensively we were pretty good for most of the night. Defensively, after about two minutes into the second quarter, we were good the last three quarters.The Pelicans have rebounded after an eight-game losing streak to start the season and were coming off a 117-96 victory at home over the Timberwolves. But the win was costly because New Orleans lost Dante Cunningham in the first half because of a non-displaced right proximal fibula fracture. He will miss four to six weeks.The four-game winning streak coincided with the return of Holiday, who missed the start of the season to care for his wife, Lauren Holiday, following the birth of their child and surgery to remove a tumor on the right side of his wifes brain. Lauren Holiday was a standout on the U.S. womens national soccer team for eight years until her retirement last year.Holiday finished with 16 points.Portland, coming off a 137-125 loss in Cleveland, led by eight points in the first quarter but New Orleans pulled in front by the second, taking a 38-32 lead on Holidays 3-pointer. Portland reclaimed a 47-43 lead on consecutive baskets from Jake Layman and McCollum.McCollum led all scorers in the first half with 19 points and the Blazers led 66-57.The Blazers went on an 8-0 run to open the third quarter, capped by McCollums 3-pointer that made it 74-57. Meyers Leonards dunk and Lillards long 3-pointer extended Portlands lead to 94-78.If youre going to be content to exchange baskets with this team youre probably going to struggle because theyre really good offensively, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said.TIP-INSPelicans: New Orleans players and coaches had Thanksgiving dinner at the family home of Jones, who grew up in Portland. His family was terrific to us, Gentry said. ... The Pelicans have four players on the injured/inactive list: Tyreke Evans (right knee), Quincy Pondexter (left knee), Cunningham (right leg) and Cheick Diallo (D-League assignment).Trail Blazers: It was Stotts birthday. ... There was no update on the status of Al-Farouq Aminu, who has a strained left calf. ... Mason Plumlee finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds. ... Portland has won 11 straight over the Pelicans at the Moda Center.SECOND CHANCESThe Blazers had 23 second-chance points compared to two for New Orleans, something that was a concern to Gentry: You give up 12 offensive rebounds and they get 23 second-chance points, he said, that means theyre scoring every time they get a rebounds and that puts way too much pressure on your offense.MILESTONESBesides his birthday, it was also Stotts 191st win as coach of the Blazers. He ranks fourth in franchise history behind Jack Ramsay (435), Rick Adelman (291) and Nate McMillan (266).Portland is the 15th NBA team to hit 2,000 wins.UP NEXT:Pelicans: New Orleans visits the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.Trail Blazers: Portland hosts the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

CHICAGO -- Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers were rolling along with a big lead, looking as though they would take another step toward a playoff spot and the top of the NFC North. http://www.gazelleogsoldes.fr/homme-lac-bleu-noir-adidas-marathon-tr-13-chaussures-de-course.html .Once it disappeared, they still found a way to pull out the victory.Rodgers hit Jordy Nelson with a 60-yard pass to set up Mason Crosbys 32-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Green Bay Packers to a 30-27 victory over the Bears in one of the coldest games ever played in Chicago on Sunday.Wide receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery ran for a career-high 162 yards and two touchdowns. Micah Hyde broke up a potential go-ahead touchdown pass, and the Packers (8-6) earned their fourth straight victory despite blowing a 27-10 lead in the fourth quarter.They also moved ahead of Minnesota for sole possession of second place in the NFC North and pulled within a game of division leader Detroit, with the Vikings getting pounded by Indianapolis and the Lions losing to the New York Giants.I think we have a lot of grit as a team, Rodgers said. We stick together in adverse situations. There wasnt any finger pointing after 27-10 turned into 27-27 for either side. We just knew we had to go out and make something happen.

The Perth-based businessman says he is realistic about the chances of keeping the Northern Irishman in charge for the long term given the success he has brought to the club. Wright has guided St Johnstone to three consecutive top-six Premiership finishes and won the Scottish Cup since taking over as manager in the summer of 2013.  Brown said: His record speaks for itself, Tommy has done a terrific job. At some point unfortunately he will probably get taken down south or somewhere else but thats something that comes with success. St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright (right) and captain Dave Mackay show off the 2013-14 Scottish Cup to the Perth public Asked if a move for Wright was imminent, Brown responded: Not that I am aware of but I think in the English season when you get to November and December a few managers lose their jobs, probably because the transfer window is in January, so that will be the time well be on alert.Its very much a compliment. Hes doing excellent with St Johnstone on the park. Its not just the results, its the way we have been playing as well. We picked up the Scottish Cup a couple of years ago which is the pinnacle of the clubs football history. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Wright was appointed to the managerial position having been the assistant to Steve Lomas, who left for Millwall in the English Championship, at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.And despite winning the club winning the Scottish Cup for the first time in its history since then, Saints chairman Brown has been left exasperated by the lack of impact their success has had on attendances. Derek McInnes and Steve Lomas bothh moved to England after successful spells with St Johnstone Its been fantastic over the last five or six years, he said. Adidas Stan Smith Noir. How we replicate that is very, very difficult. But all aspects of the club are improving. Wed like to get more people to our games but we know the population of Perth is only 40-odd thousand so weve got to be realistic with that percentage.Over the last five or six years the success we have had has been unbelievable, but unfortunately that hasnt been shown in an increase in attendance and thats really frustrating.One way in which St Johnstone are branching out to new supporters is through their newly-formed club Trust. Since being granted charity status in April, The St Johnstone Community Trust has been involved in a number of projects across Perth and Kinross from kids coaching sessions to providing support to people with Alzheimers by reminiscing about old matches and stories.  From our point of view and for our club’s size I think it’s essential we engage with the community because if you don’t then there’s no point in being here. Steve Brown, St Johnstone Chairman And Brown hopes this type of involvement not only helps the numbers at McDiarmid Park, but the wider society as a whole.He said: I think that (improving attendances) will be a slow process, we are going to be honest about it. Wed like to think that anybody that comes here, young or old, that they have an affinity with the club. The point of the Trust is to help the community and to look at the health and well-being in our society, especially in kids.The Trust ultimately engages the community and although we are playing in the Premiership, we are a community club. Its vitally important that we engage with all aspects of the community.From our point of view and for our clubs size I think its essential we engage with the community because if you dont then theres no point in being here.We want to broaden across as many activities as we can and engage as many people as we possibly can. You can watch Premier League and EFL Cup football, plus Englands tour of Bangladesh and the Mexican Grand Prix on Sky Sports.

WACO, Texas -- The former Title IX coordinator at Baylor University says that a top school official told her to never put anything in writing after she sent him a 16-page memo detailing her concerns that her authority and support were still being compromised even as the university had indicated it was trying to make changes in the wake of a series of sexual assault claims. Tim Tebow Florida Jersey .Patty Crawford told 60 Minutes Sports on Showtime that Reagan Ramsower, the universitys senior vice president for operations and chief financial officer, yelled at her in July after she wrote the memo. The segment aired Tuesday evening.He was not happy. And -- I was shocked. I was yelled at. I was told, `Dont ever put anything in writing to me again. You talk to me in person. You call me on the phone. But dont put anything in writing, she said.Ramsower told the television program that Crawfords claim was a complete fabrication.Ramsower said he had 12 meetings with Crawford in the five weeks prior to when the memo was sent and that she had not raised any of her concerns to him.David Garland, Baylors interim president, told 60 Minutes Sports on Showtime that he found Crawfords accusations that Ramsower was impeding her efforts to be untrue and also unfair. ... We have spared no expense in trying to address these issues.As Title IX coordinator, Crawford was charged with enforcing federal standards meant to prevent discrimination based on gender. Her job also included investigating the sexual assault claims.An outside investigation of the Baylor University sexual violence scandal found 17 women who had reported sexual or domestic assaults involving 19 Baylor University athletes since 2011. Those included four reports of gang rapes.The investigation by the Pepper Hamilton law firm in Philadelphia found some players were alleged to have participated in a series of assaults over several years.Baylor has previously said the review found that the football program operated as if it were above the rules.Coach Art Briles was fired earlier this year, as was the athletic director. President Ken Starr was removed from his post by regents and he later resigned as chancellor.Crawford also told 60 Minutes Sports on Showtime that she was denied access to police reports about various complaints that women had filed alleging sexual assault and abuse.She said that when she tried to get Waco police reports she received an email from a university vice president telling her that police do not want the actual police reports turned over to Title IX. Crawford said she could be apprised of what was in the reports but that the reports were off-limits.Ramsower said one of the reports by university police about an alleged gang rape in 2013 involving two football players stayed with the police department.That was -- that was a significant failure to respond by our police department. Theres no doubt about it, he said.Ramsower said the individuals within the police department who failed to notify him about these reports of sexual assaults are no longer employed by Baylor.Garland apologized for how victims were treated.I am so sorry that we did not treat them right. And we will not ... let this happen again, he said. Brandon Spikes Florida Jersey .

The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals and All-Pro defensive back Tyrann Mathieu have agreed to a five-year contract extension, a rich reward for a player once considered a high-risk draftee.A person with knowledge of the agreement says the contract totals $62.5 million, with $40 million guaranteed. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the terms were not revealed.The agreement, announced by the team on Tuesday night, comes despite major injuries to both of Mathieus knees in his first three NFL seasons. He has yet to play a full NFL season.Mathieu, known as the Honey Badger to his multitude of fans, sent a tweet earlier Tuesday that said simply, blessed.The agreement is further evidence of his remarkable rise after being out of football for a season following his dismissal from LSU for marijuana-related offenses.Mathieu was considered a risk when the Cardinals chose him in the third round (69th overall) in the 2013 draft, but he quickly developed into one of the teams top players and evolved into a vocal leader with no off-field issues.Mathieus first contract had $800,000 guaranteed with a multitude of drug tests, but much of the money was spread over four seasons because of concerns about his earlier problems.The new contract would be the largest for a safety in NFL history. Although he is listed as a safety and earned All-Pro honors at that position, Mathieu had more plays at cornerback last season. Basically, hes a do-everything defensive back.It was unclear whether the contract had contingencies if Mathieu suffers further serious injuries. The guarantee may be unprecedented for a young player who had undergone two knee surgeries in such a short period of time.Mathieu tore his left ACL and LCL on a brutal hit against St. Louis in December of his rookie season and tore his right ACL in a non-contact injury following an interception late in a one-sided victory at Philadelphia last Dec. 20. The Cardinals defense was noticeably less effective after losing Mathieuu, who brings an emotional edge to his game as well as his considerable physical skills and instincts. Fresno State Bulldogs Jerseys. Coach Bruce Arians voice cracked with emotion when he revealed to reporters the extent of Mathieus injury the day after the Eagles game.When Mathieu returned in his second season, he had difficulty adjusting to playing with a knee brace.The second injury was far less serious, but Mathieu opened training camp last week on the physically unable to perform list.Mathieu was to receive a base salary of $1.4 million this season. The $265,000 roster bonus that was part of his rookie deal was spread over four years.He has become one of the most charismatic and accessible players on the team. His spirited approach to the game was prominently on display in the All or Nothing video series by NFL Films on Amazon.com that documented Arizonas 2015 season.A dynamic defensive back at LSU, Mathieu was a Heisman Trophy finalist as a sophomore in the 2011 season, the first defensive back so honored since Charles Woodson won the award in 1997. But he was dismissed from his college team in August 2012 and was arrested on marijuana-related charges that December.He came to the NFL under that cloud of suspicion but readily talked about his problems and peppered his many tweets with inspirational thoughts and sayings.Mathieu also became a voice for social justice, decrying the violence in his hometown of New Orleans.Several of his Arizona teammates exulted in news of the contract.When I say my boy his own money, defensive lineman Calais Campbell said on Twitter, I mean the boy has his own MONEY.All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson, a teammate of Mathieu at LSU who took the player under his wing with the Cardinals, said in a tweet, Man Im soo happy for my baby brother (at)Mathieu-Era he deserves every penny!!!---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. http://www.sauconyshoesonsale.com/saucony-shadow-original.html . Robinson finished with 17 points, all but two in the second half, and Lawson had 14 after halftime and finished with a game-high 11 assists as the Nuggets handed Dallas its first home loss in eight games this season. J.J. Hickson led Denver with 22, and Kenneth Faried added 10 points and 10 rebounds. Sometimes all it takes is a little perspective shift to see the big picture.Weve had Connor McDavid in the NHL since the beginning of last season, but his first trip to the top of the NHL points leaderboard came early last week. We are quite sure it wont be his last, but extended injuries can make it hard to appreciate players at the best of times, let alone when theyre injured rookies.McDavids injury last season, which had him sidelined from November to February, meant that he finished well outside the points race. He was tied for 105th in the league with 48 points because he only played in 45 games last season.If you look at the NHL regular season scoring leaderboard for the calendar year of 2016, you get a bit of a different picture. First is, of course, Sidney Crosby, with 78 points in 60 games sine we flipped the pages from 2015. Patrick Kane is second, with 73 points in 66 games since the ball dropped in Times Square. Joe Thornton is third, with 69 points in 68 games since we last sang Auld Lang Syne.Then we have McDavid, tied for fourth in the NHL since Jan. 1, 2016, with 64 points in just 54 games (he missed 14 in the month of January). Theres no wondering about that kind of production from the wunderkind. Finishing fourth in the NHL -- or perhaps better -- during a calendar year is no small success.But we all know how great McDavid is; who else looks different when you judge NHL players based on the calendar year of scoring?Artemi Panarin, C/LW, Chicago Blackhawks (fourth in 2016, 64 points in 64 games): Certainly for last season, it looked like Panarin was doing more than a little bit of coattail riding with Patrick Kane. More and more, that does not appear to be the case. In fact, Panarin has played just about as much without Kane as he has with him this season -- and the success continues. In 2016 on the whole, Panarin is tied with Connor McDavid for the fourth-most points in the NHL. That is not something achieved through coattail riding alone. Panarins standing in fantasy hockey should no longer have a link to Kanes.Phil Kessel, RW, Pittsburgh Penguins (11th in 2016, 59 points in 67 games): Hes not scoring goals the way he did with the Toronto Maple Leafs, so it doesnt feel like Kessels still tearing things up. But 11th in the league for points in 2016 says otherwise. Sure, he only has 21 goals in 2016, but when the points are still there, we can forgive Kessel for becoming a little more playmaker than sniper. While the HBK line of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Kessel wasnt able to carry over its success from last season and the playoffs, Kessel has looked more than okay skating with Evgeni Malkin on a regular basis this season.Brayden Schenn, C/LW, Philadelphia Flyers (15th in 2016, 57 points in 65 games): With only 13 points this campaign, Schenn is tied for 91st in the NHL this season in scoring. Really, that puts the end of last season in perspective when you note that Schenn is tied for 15th in scoring in the NHL in 2016. Playing on the top-heavy Flyers can have big benefits when the pucks are going in. Schenn is still playing those big minutes alongside Claude Giroux both on and off the power play, so the dam is ready to burst on his 2016-17 scoring pace.Bo Horvat, C, Vancouver Canucks (45th in 2016, 45 points in 66 games): If asked to list the top 100 forwards for points in this look at the 2016 calendar year off the top of your head, there is a pretty good chance Horvat would miss the cut. So to consider the fact that he is in the top 50 for scoring in 2016 means hes really doing this under the radar. A red hot January last season really helped along his totals, but Horvat is driving secondary scoring for the Canucks right now, too. Originally catching fire in mid-November with linemate Sven Baertschi, Horvat just kept on scoring with different linemates after Baertschi suffered a foot injury this past week. The plus/minus that put a pretty big damper on Horvats fantasy value last season doesnt appear to be a major issue this campaign. He arguably deserves a chance on deep- to medium-league rosters; hes owned in only 18 percent of ESPN leagues.Forwards rising and fallingRyan Johansen, C, Nashville Predators (up 11 spots to No. 56): Its about time he shook off that slow start. Johansen turned in five points in a span of two games last week to push his season total to four goals and 10 assists in 21 games. Thats still not great, but its bringing hiim back to respectability and showing that the rust from October is disappearing. Saucony Shadow 5000 White. . Buy low on Johansen while you still can.Michael Cammalleri, LW, New Jersey Devils (up 41 spots to No. 155): We are now in typical Cammalleri territory. After a month with no production, Cammalleri missed two weeks with an injury -- and then scored eight points in three games. That sounds about right for the mercurial and oft-injured fantasy forward. Whether or not he should be a part of your fantasy plans depends on your tolerance for inconsistency. If you can accept the lulls and injuries by sticking Cammalleri on your bench, he makes a great addition. If youre forced to ride him out in your lineup in a weekly lineup situation, you may want to look elsewhere.Mikael Granlund, C/LW, Minnesota Wild (up 38 spots to No. 212): Granlund has seemingly earned more and more of new Wild coach Bruce Boudreaus trust as the season wears on. He started the season playing about 17 minutes per game, was up to 19 minutes on average by the end of October and has almost averaged 20 minutes per contest in November. The results are showing on the scoreboard, with Granlund set to double his point total from October with a point on Tuesday. Playing on the second line and second power-play unit with Mikko Koivu, Granlund deserves to be picked up in most fantasy formats. Hes available in 82 percent of ESPN leagues.Defensemen rising and fallingColton Parayko, D, St. Louis Blues (up 16 spots to No. 183): When youve got Kevin Shattenkirk and Alex Pietrangelo on the depth chart in front of you, its easy to get overlooked. But wed be mistaken not to include Parayko in our ongoing fantasy plans. Still available in 23 percent of ESPN leagues, Parayko has 11 points in 22 games from the blue line, with three of those points coming on the man advantage. Whats more, Parayko is due for some scoring luck. No one in the NHL has as many shots on goal without a goal as Parayko does this season. Sure, Duncan Keith and John Carlson have 50 shots on goal without a tally this season, but Parayko has 60. Parayko is on pace to easily eclipse his shot total from last season, when he scored nine goals on 165 shots.Goaltenders rising and fallingChad Johnson, G, Calgary Flames (up 28 spots to No. 196): Sundays loss to the Flyers wasnt exactly inspiring, but Johnsons body of work through the month of November has otherwise been sparkling. He should get a long enough leash for a couple of blips considering he has unexpectedly rescued the Flames from their crease struggles. As Brian Elliott continued to melt down into November, Johnson rode in on a white horse to compile a 6-3 record with a 2.01 goals-against average in nine starts this month. Hes the man for now, and is worthy of being on rosters until something changes, and is a free agent in 70 percent of ESPN leagues.Quick hitsHes looked good in two games since being moved down the depth chart, but overall we should lower expectations for Sam Bennett for a while. It should be harder for him to do damage on the third line and with only 15 minutes of ice time per game.Sean Couturiers sprained MCL opens up a lot of important minutes for the Flyers for the next four to six weeks. Nick Cousins was pushed into the top six on the weekend, while Scott Laughton was summoned from the AHL to replace Couturiers roster spot. The Flyers are always worthy of watching closely for value on the top two lines.Petr Mrazek is being forced back into the Detroit Red Wings crease with Jimmy Howard out for up to two weeks. Its now or never for Mrazek to earn his crease back for the season, so if youve been holding him this long, hold out just a little longer.Check the injury status of Jonathan Toews, Brad Marchand and James Neal heading into this week, especially in leagues that lock you down for the entire seven days.Top 250 rankingsHere are the updated rest-of-season, top 250 rankings of forwards, defensemen and goalies, including position ranks.Note: Sean Allens top 250 players are ranked for their expected performance in ESPN standard leagues from this point on.

ATHENS, Ga. Under Armour Curry 2 Singapore . -- It was a routine play, one?Nick Chubb had run dozens of times as Georgias workhorse running back.Georgia was on the road at Tennessee?on Oct. 10, 2015, one week removed from a humbling defeat against Alabama?but still very much in the SEC East race. Chubb, a leading Heisman Trophy contender, took a toss on the Bulldogs first offensive play. He landed awkwardly after being tackled and forced out of bounds.I remember how it felt when it happened, Chubb said. There was a tingling feeling in my leg. My body went forward, and my leg went backward. I knew something was wrong.Mike Worthington, who was Chubbs track and strength and conditioning coach at Cedartown (Ga.) High School, was sitting in the stands with his wife and Chubbs girlfriend.I was 20 feet away, Worthington said. We were so close. I wasnt sure what happened. I thought he was caught in the chains.But Worthingtons wife, Libby, told him that Chubb wasnt getting up. Then someone texted him a photograph from the TV broadcast of Chubbs hyperextended left leg.It didnt look good, Worthington said.Chubb, whose only previous injury had been a broken hand in high school, knew something was terribly wrong with his knee.Im a running back, he said. I thought I tore my ACL.The next day, an MRI confirmed his injury was in fact much worse. He dislocated his left knee, tearing multiple ligaments and cartilage; only the ACL was still intact. Doctors kept him in an Athens hospital for nearly a week because they feared he might have nerve or vascular injuries in his leg, as well. Chubb would need season-ending surgery and faced months of rehabilitation. He wasnt sure when he would return to the field again.Because the injury looked so bad on TV, some even wondered whether Chubb would ever play again.But, less than a year after undergoing surgery to repair three torn knee ligaments and cartilage damage, Chubb was back in the Bulldogs starting lineup in the opener against North Carolina on Sept. 3.According to the people who worked with Chubb during his rehabilitation, his quick return to the field is a testament to his determination and desire to return to the player he once was.Malcolm Gladwell wrote about outliers, Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson said. Nick is an outlier. Hes genetically gifted. He has a tremendous work ethic, and hes as mentally tough as anyone Ive ever seen. Im not surprised hes back.Going into No. 12 Georgias road game at No. 23 Ole Miss on Saturday, Chubb ranks second in the SEC with 365 rushing yards with three touchdowns. Even after suffering the knee injury, hes ranked among the top running backs available for next springs NFL draft, if he decides to forgo his senior season.Its just something inside me, I guess, Chubb said. Ive never backed down from anything. I like challenges, and it was big challenge in front of me. I just wanted to come back for my teammates and everyone who supported me.In interviews with ESPN last week, Chubb, Georgias coaches, medical director and others documented his 11-month recovery, offering a behind-the-scenes look at Chubbs long and painful rehabilitation and return to the field.While Georgia fans and much of college football cheered his remarkable return, few realize the work and effort required during his recovery.On Oct. 23, nearly two weeks after the injury, Chubb underwent surgery. Orthopedic surgeon Robert Hancock repaired Chubbs knee, along with James Andrews, the renowned surgeon who has operated on countless professional athletes, including NFL running backs Adrian Peterson and Todd Gurley and golfer Jack Nicklaus.On a scale of 1 to 10, Courson described Chubbs injury as a 9. In addition to torn ligaments and cartilage, doctors also had to reattach the hamstring muscle in his left leg. In the weeks after his surgery, Chubb lost 20 pounds because of muscle atrophy.I always believed he was going to come back from Day 1, but it was a very, very significant injury, Courson said.During the first four weeks after surgery, Chubb remained in the training room at Georgias Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall nearly 12 hours each day. Since it would have been difficult for him to physically attend classes, he worked with tutors to maintain his academic work. His daily schedule included breakfast, four hours of rehabilitation, lunch, academic work and then strength and conditioning drills.Chubb worked with a nutritionist to ensure he was eating enough protein to rebuild his muscles, and he spent time with a sports psychologist to cope with the shock of the injury.I knew I was going to miss the rest of the season, so I had to accept that, Chubb said. I set short-term goals for myself and waited to see where it took me.Initially, Courson worked with Chubb on improving the flexion of his left knee and rebuilding the quad muscle in his leg. Among other exercises, he bounced while sitting on a medicine ball and slowly sidestepped over small hurdles. Dry needles were poked into his injured leg to stimulate trigger points and relieve pain in his quad muscle.After surgery, my leg was locked up and stiff for two or three weeks, Chubb said. I couldnt bend it. I had to lie on my stomach while Ron was bending my knee. It was the worst pain Ive ever felt. It was way worse than tearing it.Before Chubb could run, he literally had to learn to walk again. He spent the first nine weeks after surgery using crutches and wearing a heavy post-operative knee brace. He faced a slow, painful recovery.You cant speed up Mother Nature, Courson said. Its like baking a cake. You cant turn up the heat and speed up recovery.Less than two months after surgery, Chubb was hitting significant milestones. On Dec. 19, he walked without crutches for the first time. He started leg extensions and ran on an underwater treadmill on Jan. 15.Courson also used an experimental training method to help rebuild the muscles in Chubbs left leg. For the first time, Courson used Kaatsu blood-flow restriction training to help a Georgia player recover from injuries. Japanese doctor Yoshiaki Sato invented Kaatsu training in 1966, but it wasnt widely used in the U.S. until recently. U.S. skier Bode Miller used Kaatsu training to help him recover from a bad leg injury.A thin, pressurized band was wrapped around Chubbs left leg to restrict the amount of blood flowing back to his heart. As a result, his injured leg was engorged with blood, filling his capillaries and muscle fibers while he worked out.When Courson initially explained how Kaatsu training worked, he told Chubb that Georgias trainers were going to push him until he reached muscle failure.Do you know what that means? Courson asked him.No, Chubb said.He had never experienced muscle failure, Courson said. Our biggest issue was slowing him down. Some people do rehab; he attacked rehab. I told him early on, Dont come in here and just do your time. Get everything out of it you possibly can. He worked so hard.On Jan. 26, Chubb started walking stadium steps at Sanford Stadium -- the entire lower bowl. The next time, he did it while wearing a 20-pound weight vest.Eleven days later, Chubb started straight-ahead running for the first time. With older brother Zachary watching, Chubb jogged 10 yards into the end zone at Sanford Stadium on Feb. 6.The start of the 2016 season was only seven months away, and Chubbs knee was still extremely stiff. Not only was he not yet sprinting or cutting like a running back but he was still jogging with a significant limp. But running 10 yards was still a big step in his recovery.We wanted him to visualize where he was going to be, Courson said. Running in the stadium was where he was working to get back to.In early February, Chubb started intensive proprioception drills to improve the stability and range of motion in his knee. While squatting, he balanced himself on a spherelike base while catching a medicine ball. While wearing hospital-type booties, he slid back and forth on a slick slide board, which hockey players use to build power and strength in their legs. He also worked on a cross-fit machine that downhill skiers use, as well as an ice skating trainer.By Feb. 23, Chubb was jumping again on his injured leg. He started by jumping on both legs, then worked his way to only one leg. Eventually, he jumped rope and even used a pogo stick, once Courson found one with a 300-pound weight limit.On March 1, Courson and his staff threw the kitchen sink at Chubb. He bounced back and forth between two bases that looked like medicine balls that were cut in half -- while catching footballs. Then he moved through a short obstacle course that required him to step over small hurdles and catch footballs while balancing on one leg.I dont know if we even have any guys on the team that could do that when theyre healthy, Courson said.Four days after Georgia opened its first spring practices under new coach Kirby Smart, Chubb started running change-of-direction drills for the first time. Chubb was held out of most team practices, other than taking handoffs and running short bursts in noncontact drills.When Courson sent Smart a three-second video of Chubb running a cones course, in which he was cutting and sprinting between the cones, Smart replied: Should he be doing that?I didnt know, Smart said. I really had no clue. Ron felt good about the surgery. The doctors thought it was a really good repair, but there was a lot of damage in there. I felt better after spring practice when I saw him taking handoffs and running straight ahead.During the spring, Courson also introduced another unorthodox exercise to Chubbs rehabilitation: mixed martial arts and taekwondo. For the next five months, Chubb worked out three times a week with twin brothers Cole and Sean Borders of Borders Black Belt Academy near Athens.Courson has worked out at the martial arts academy since the 1990s and thought the sport might break up the monotony of Chubbs rehabilitation. Initially, the brothers were hesitant to push him too hard. Chubb started by kicking heavy bags and paddle pads. He also did mat drills that focused on extending his leg and manipulating his knee.Once we started building up his strength and felt confident, we started using shields, and his body had to absorb a lot of the impact, Cole Borders said. When Ron stopped coming with him, it kind of let us know that he was doing fine and we could open it up a little bit.After a few weeks, Chubb graduated to tension kicks, a slow front kick that required him to hold his leg in the air, and push/pull kicks, which use resistance bands and wall anchors.?Eventually, getting hit by one of his kicks was like getting hit by a Mack truck, Sean Borders said.After spring practice ended, Chubb started working out with Georgias track team. A track star in high school, Chubb worked with the Bulldogs sprinters to improve his speed.Georgias coaches certainly werent worried about his overall strength. According to Courson, Chubb is still one of Georgias strongest players. He squatted more than 600 pounds (strength coaches wouldnt let him lift additional weight), and he had the longest broad jump and heaviest power clean lift of any UGA player.Nick takes his body so seriously that he was never going to be out of shape, Smart said. I think the guy was so aggressive in rehab that he came back stronger. He put on weight, and hes heavier. He seems just as fast.By May, Georgias trainers had cleared Chubb to participate in full strength and conditioning workouts without any restrictions. He was similarly cleared to participate in summer football workouts, such as voluntary 7-on-7 passing drills.There was only one significant test remaining -- to be tackled at full speed. He would have to wait another three months for it to happen during preseason camp.There was just a little bit of doubt, Chubb said. You really dont know. The last time I played in a game, my knee went the other way. You dont know if youre fine until youre falling and other people are falling on top of you.When the Bulldogs opened preseason camp Aug. 1, Chubb was fully cleared to participate in all activities. Smart was going to be cautious with his star tailback, though. He allowed Georgias defenders to hit and wrap up Chubb, but they werent supposed to take him to the ground.Finally, in Georgias first full-contact scrimmage, on Aug. 13, Chubb ran the ball in live action on limited carries. On his first attempt, he was tackled quickly. On his next carry, he broke through the line and an official inadvertently blew his whistle.Coach, Im all right, Chubb told Smart. Tell them not to blow the whistle. After Chubb was given unlimited carries in Georgias second scrimmage a week later, Smart was confident he would be ready for the season opener against the Tar Heels.Smart was determined to keep Chubbs availability as quiet as possible, especially after running back Sony Michel broke his arm in an ATV accident July 4.?We wanted to keep it in-house, Chubb said. We didnt want people to get excited and put more pressure on me. People expect so much with everything you do.Finally, on the Monday before the opener, Smart broke the news: Chubb was ready to play and wouldnt be on a pitch count against the Tar Heels. Chubb would soon find out that his new coach wasnt kidding.Less than a year after suffering a devastating knee injury, Chubb started at tailback when the Bulldogs opened the season against North Carolina. On the games first play from scrimmage, he took a handoff and ran for 6 yards. On the next play, he gained 13 yards and a first down. Just like that, Chubb was back.I never knew until the game actually started whether or not I was going to feel good, Chubb said.In Chubbs first game back, he ran 32 times for 222 yards with two touchdowns, averaging 6.9 yards per carry in a 33-24 victory. Smart said he and his coaches never discussed how many carries Chubb would get in the game; they only decided he wouldnt get three or four consecutive attempts.None of the runs he had in our scrimmages looked like the ones he had against North Carolina, Smart said. I think he was fresher. The thing you cant measure is how much better he makes everybody else around him. The fact he was able to play and be a captain really excited everyone else.Chubb didnt have as much success running behind Georgias revamped offensive line in his next two games. In a 26-24 victory over FCS foe Nicholls on Sept. 10, he ran 20 times for 80 yards with one touchdown. In last weeks 28-27 win at Missouri in the SEC opener, he ran 19 times for 63 yards.On Saturday, Chubb hopes to write the next chapter of his remarkable comeback story at Ole Miss.Its unreal, Smart said. The guy is not normal. His heart beats to a different drum than everybody else. People like him eat challenges. He needs it, wants it and desires it. If you put something in front of him, hes going to handle it. Under Armour Basketball Shoes Singapore Stephen Curry Shoes 2 . After Martin Skrtel put the Reds in front from close range at Stamford Bridge after only four minutes, Hazard hit back in the 17th with a superb strike. Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. http://www.underarmoursg.com/stephen-curry-shoes-singapore/ua-stephen-curry-2-5-for-sale.html . Kuznetsov, who was selected by the Capitals in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has been playing for his hometown team Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL. AMES, Iowa -- Even though Iowa State coach Matt Campbell has insisted that his first season is about building a stable program, he knows he has a player he can win with right now in running back Mike Warren.Over the past two weeks, Warren has finally started to look like himself again.Warren, who rushed for over 1,300 yards last season in roughly just 10 games, bounced back from a brutal start with 198 yards and a touchdown in his last two outings, including a 44-10 drubbing of San Jose State on Saturday. The Cyclones (1-3, 0-1 Big 12) host No. 13 Baylor (4-0, 1-0) this weekend.I feel like I can see the field better, Warren said. It all starts in practice and the film room, and maybe there were things that I was missing in the film room that I see now.In the early going, an inexperienced offensive line opened few holes for him, and the Cyclones were forced to throw the ball in an effort to open up the field.The line has played better of late though, and Warren has been a key beneficiary. Iowa State committed to the ground game in a 41-20 loss at TCU on Sept. 17, running it 47 times despite falling behind early. Warren had 23 of those tries and rushed for 95 yards, 37 more than he had in losses to Northern Iowa and Iowa.Against San Jose State, the Cyclones used turnovers and the passing game to grab a big lead. They used what was essentially garbage time to work on running the ball with Warren, and he cracked the 100-yard barrier for the first time in 2016.I think the offensive line is really coming along. Just knowing that we have set starting rotation now, those guys are going to really understand how to work together and be cohesive as a group and depend on each other and trust each other, Warren said. Under Armour Shoes Singapore. arren struggled with fumbles at times in 2015, and he gave it away yet again last week after a long pass play.Its one of those things that we have to just get out of his game, Campbell said. Its something thats obviously talked about. I think Mike knows that. Hes a prideful football player and he knows thats something he needs to continue to strengthen and to do better to be the complete back he can be.If the Cyclones can keep throwing as well as they did against the Spartans, Warren should have even more room to operate in the weeks ahead.Iowa State has apparently settled on a quarterback rotation with starter Joel Lanning and Jacob Park, who combined to complete 20 passes for 301 yards and five touchdowns last week. The pair complemented each other well. Lanning is the bigger threat to run and throw it deep, while Park has shown he can excel in a more traditional Big 12-type scheme.But Campbell wants the Cyclones to be a program that controls games on the ground, and when Warren gets going there are few better backs in the league.Its huge. To have him start playing with confidence ... hes just consistently getter better, Lanning said. Weve got to keep him rolling.---Online: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

As noted in this space last week about the strongly run Breeders Cup Juvenile by Classic Empire and Not This Time, there is much optimism for this years class of 2-year-old males. http://www.designershoesaleie.com/adidas-nmd-men-s-white-navy-red-high-top-shoes.html . More encouraging signs came Saturday in stakes victories from Mastery and Gunnevera.Mastery, a most eye-catching debut winner at Santa Anita just two weeks before the Breeders Cup, won the Bob Hope Stakes at Del Mar, a springboard to the Los Alamitos Cash Call Futurity on Dec. 10. Mastery was supposed to win the Bob Hope. He was 1-5. So it says something about Mastery that he also managed to impress.Mastery absolutely toyed with runner-up California Diamond through the stretch run of the Bob Hope. The official win margin was 1-1/4 lengths, but it would have been significantly larger if Mastery had been asked to run. The thing that was most striking about the stretch run of the Bob Hope, however, was the contrasting profiles of the two protagonists.California Diamond might not be the second coming of Hindoo, but he had seven starts before Saturday; he won five, four of which were stakes, including three straight stakes scores. California Diamond had all the seasoning that Mastery lacked, and yet Mastery performed through the stretch as though hes been doing this racing thing forever.If there is one caveat regarding Masterys victory Saturday, it was that the pace he set was slow -- in fact, the slowest of the five main-track races on the Del Mar card -- and by a significant margin. But there are a couple of points that might mitigate the slow fractions. For one, even though he was in front, Mastery still shut himself off, which I take as a strong indicator that he will successfully rate off the early lead.The other consideration is how Mastery finished. If he didnt finish well after that slow pace, then there wouldnt be nearly as much to get excited about. But Mastery went his seventh and final furlong in 11.61 seconds, which is fast, and strongly suggests stretching out will be no issue for him.Gunneveras win in the Delta Downs Jackpot was more of an in your face performance. He lagged early off a fairly strong but contested pace, and overwhelmed his field with a move at least five wide on the far turn that eventually carried him to the lead and then on to a near six-length romp.Gunneveras Delta Jackpot was flashy, but it is important to put his effort in some context. Gunnevera was the only member of the 10-horse field to have won a graded stakes race (he won the Grade 2 Saratoga Special in August), and he was also the only one in the field to have prior Grade 1 stakes experience (he finished fifth in Keenelands Breeders Futurity in his most recent outing).That said, one of the several things to like about Classic Empire even before he won the Breeders Cup Juvenile is he won the Breeders Futurity despite stretching out to two turns for the first time in his first representative start in three months; Im not counting his Hopeful appearance, when he wheeled coming out of the gate as the favorite as a representative outing. It should be noted that Gunnevera was in a similar position when he ran in the Breeders Futurity.The Breeders Futurity was Gunneveras first start in two months, and it was also his first start around two turns. He wasnt able to overcome those hurdles the way Classic Empire did. Gunnevera was put to a heavy drive on the far turn at Keeneland, yet he gave a little ground and position through the Breeders Futurity stretch run. But while that says Gunnevera has quite a bit of improving to do before he can be considered on the same level as Classic Empire, the outing in the Breeders Futurity worked perfectly for Gunnevera in the context of the Delta Jackpot.Unfortunately, the 2-year-old filly division this year hasnt been as compelling as the juvenile males has been, but that may begin to change after the smashing victory from Shanes Girlfriend in the Delta Downs Princess Stakes one race before the Jackpot.Shanes Girlfriend, a romping if surprising (she was 8-1 in a field of nine) debut winner at Santa Anita late last month, shipped and stretched out for the Princess, and ran off to score by just over 13 lengths. Now, it must be noted that there was not one graded stakes winner among the nine opponents she crushed Saturday, yet I still feel Shanes Girlfriend upstaged Gunnevera.The Princess was run at a mile, the Jackpot was at 1 1/16 miles; thats close enough to make pace comparisons. When you do, youll find the Princesss pace was faster to the first quarter (23.06 to 23.18) and substantially faster to the three-quarter mark (1:11.71 to 1:12.52). Shanes Girlfriend did what she did being right on top of that faster early pace, a pace that was actually the strongest sustained pace (emphasis on the word sustained) all day at Delta, and all day at Delta Saturday was 11 races.And for the record, Shanes Girlfriend completed her mile in 1:37.98. Gunnevera got his mile in 1:38.64. Yes, I know Gunnevera had another sixteenth to go after that mile split, but he certainly wasnt speeding up late, even if he was drawing away. http://www.designershoesaleie.com/adidas-nmd-men-s-navy-light-blue-high-top-shoes.html . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. http://www.designershoesaleie.com/men-s-women-s-adidas-neo-lite-racer-dark-blue-white-mint-shoes.html . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. http://www.designershoesaleie.com/unisex-adidas-climacool-boat-sl-outdoor-shoes-metallic-grey-fluorescent-green.html . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. PULLMAN, Wash. -- After Washington States Gabe Marks caught the touchdown pass that made him the leading receiver in the history of the Pacific-12 Conference, the referees yelled at him to return the football.No, its my ball, he told the refs, in a move that surprised no one who knows the fiery receiver.If quarterback Luke Falk is the field general of the Air Raid offense, Marks is the emotional and intellectual voice of the No. 23 Cougars.It was little surprise that the 295th reception of Marks stellar career, breaking the Pac-12 mark of 294 set by Nelson Spruce of Colorado, was a touchdown in Washington States 56-21 rout of California on Nov. 12.The touchdown works out better as a story, Marks said after the game.I wasnt feeling all blushy and stuff, all romantic or anything, Marks said when asked how he felt about the Pac-12 receptions record. It was cool. I appreciated the cheers from the fans and everything and the acknowledgement for it.The senior caught six more passes in Washington States loss to No. 9 Colorado last Saturday, bringing his career total to 301. He is just the 13th receiver in FBS history, and the only one from the Pac-12, with more than 300 catches. His 3,314 yards are ninth-most in league history.Marks is sure to be a prime target when the Cougars host rival No. 6 Washington on Friday in the annual Apple Cup, with the winner claiming the Pac-12 North title and a shot at the Rose Bowl.While some athletes downplay the pursuit of records, Marks said chasing the Pac-12 receptions standard gave him an extra spark.I used that energy to make plays, Marks said. It doesnt make me nervous or anything.Offensive lineman Cole Madison noted Marks brings extra energy to the team and will call out players who arent putting out the required effort.Gabe Marks is a real football player, Madison said.The 6-foot, 190-pound Marks grew up in Venice, California, where he was a star player despite his modest size. He was 9 years old when his father was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in 2004.When Leach was hiredd to rebuild the woeful Washington State program after the 2011 season, one of the first scholarships he offered was to Marks. http://www.designershoesaleie.com/adidas-casual-shoes-men-s-women-s-superstar-2-white-gold.html. Mike Leach is really cool, Marks said. I committed before I even took a visit.Its been a long time coming and it is a great team award, Leach said of the receiving record, noting the quarterbacks, blockers and other receivers involved in plays where Marks caught passes. He is a great representative. Hes very competitive, hangs in there, battles away.Marks played immediately, catching 49 passes for 560 yards as a freshman. He caught 74 passes for 807 yards as a sophomore.But entering his junior year, he was behind Isiah Myers on the depth chart. He also suffered from health problems, and the decision was made to redshirt.He chafed at times, but the decision was for the best, Marks said.Marks had a breakout season last year, watching 104 passes for 1,192 yards and 15 touchdowns as Washington posted a 9-4 record. He was an All-Pac-12 selection.Asked to identify the key components of the Cougars, Marks riffed on an improved running game, positive chemistry and the defenses ability to generate turnovers. He also noted the play of quarterback Luke Falk, who Marks tabbed earlier as the Messiah.Everything is going according to plan, Marks said. Whats not to like?Marks and Leach have been known to jaw at each other on the sidelines, but they have a mutual respect.We talk about a lot of things, Marks said.Hes a brilliant guy, Leach said. He thinks independently. He would actually be a pretty good coach someday.Marks had a few games left in his college career, and he wants to make the most of them.Its about just winning games now, Marks said. Ive kind of done everything that I can do in my reach.He was asked how it felt to be tied for first place in the Pac-12 North.Its better than sitting in last place in mid-November with nothing to play for, Marks said. That would suck.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. http://www.jordan11uk.com/men-s-air-jordan-11-retro-basketball-shoes-black-gold-136046-043.html . -- The 70th Little League World Series championship game is set.East Seoul, South Korea (4-1) beat Panama 7-2 to win the international half of the bracket, and Endwell, New York (4-0) won the U.S. bracket with a 4-2 victory over Goodlettsville, Tennessee on Saturday.Here are a few things to know about the game Sunday at Lamade Stadium.SCOUTING THE OPPOSITIONImmediately after his teams win, manager Heesu Ji hinted that he and his players wouldnt put much stock into the U.S. final result. Instead, he said through a translator it didnt matter and his team would play the same way it has against international competition.Meanwhile, New York manager Scott Rush said his team watched South Koreas game on television but the East Seoul players have made a bigger impression in person. Literally.South Korea boasts a big, powerful lineup with six players weighing in over 150 pounds. Theyve used that power to hammer five of the teams nine home runs.Theyre a big team, Rush said. I know they have a lot of pitchers that throw hard and throw some fairly nasty offspeed pitches. They hit the ball well.STARTING PITCHERSAlthough he gave up a two-run homer that halved his teams lead late in the U.S. final, righty Jude Abbadessa will likely get the call for New York. He threw 22 pitches in the U.S. championship with one walk.For the tournament, Abbadessa (1-0) has allowed just six runs on four hits with four walks and three strikeouts. Endwell fans have made a habit of bellowing Jude! whenever he takes the mound or walks to the plate and Abbadessa is no stranger to big games. His efforts in the U.S. championship aside, he notched the final out in the Mid-Atlantic Regional title game to push his squad into the World Series.Hearing my name sort of gives me confidence and just how loud it is just gives me even more confidence, Abbadessa said. I like the feeling of everybody saying my name.South Korea has two options and Ji said he would decide between Junho Jeong and Wontae Cho before the game. Jeong (1-1) has allowed two runs on four hits with two walks and 11 strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings. Cho (1-0) has pitched five innings with no runs and no hits with 10 strikeouts and only one walk.OTHER LEADERSJames Fellows came through for New York with just his fifth hit of the tournament on Saturday but he leads the team with an on base percentage of .700 and is hitting a team-best .625 with 10 plate appearances.Abbadessa leads New York with eight RBI and is hitting .571.Seum Kwon has been South Koreas most consistent hitter. He heads into the title game batting .455 in 16 plate appearances. His three homers leads all players in the final. He leads his team with a .625 on base percentage.STREAKS AND DROUGHTSSouth Korea is making its fourth appearance in the finals and first since 2014. Teams from Seoul have never lost when reaching the finals with wins in 1984, 1985 and 2014.Meanwhile, teams from the Empire State have made three finals appearances in 17 tournaments. Endwell became the first New York team in seven years to qualify for the World Series but would end a much longer title drought with a win. Mid Island from Staten Island did it last in 1964.CONSOLATIONGoodlettsville will face Panama in the consolation game. http://www.jordan11uk.com/men-s-air-jordan-11-retro-basketball-shoes-purple-black-gold.html .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. http://www.jordan11uk.com/authentic-528895-007-air-jordan-11-retro-low-grey-mist-white-midnight-navy-men-women-gs-girls.html . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. http://www.jordan11uk.com/men-s-air-jordan-11-retro-elephant-print-basketball-shoes-white-grey.html . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. KENT, Ohio -- Western Michigans perfect season is still afloat.On a rainy night, the team that lives to Row the Boat stayed above water and unbeaten.Jarvion Franklin rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown and Fabian Johnson added a career-high 125 yards as the No. 21 Broncos rallied for a 37-21 win over Kent State on Tuesday night to become the nations first 10-win team.Franklins 19-yard TD with 8:27 helped the Broncos (10-0, 6-0 Mid-American Conference; No. 14 AP) finally put away the upset-minded Golden Flashes (3-7, 2-4), who jumped to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.But Western Michigan, abiding by coach P.J. Flecks Row the Boat mantra, kept plugging away and scored 21 straight points before swinging the game with a safety in the fourth.Thats something we didnt anticipate, Franklin said of the 14-point hole. But we just kept our oars in the water, stayed true to the process and believed we deserve to be here.The Broncos are the highest-ranked MAC school in the AP Top 25 poll since 2008 and have their sights on a major bowl bid. They moved to No. 21 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings just before kickoff and then shook off their biggest deficit this season.Ive never been more proud of a football team in my entire career because they had everything on the line, Fleck said. Were going to get everybodys best shot. Were always now on a national stage. Somebody wants to be the team to knock us off, and we know that.Quarterback Zach Terrell scored on a 1-yard keeper in the third quarter, capping a 20-play drive, to give Western Michigan its first lead at 19-14 before he threw a pass to Johnson for the 2-point conversion.Kent State didnt fold and responded with an 83-yard drive, tying it on freshman Justin Rankins 20-yard run.Western Michigans next drive stalled near mid-field, but the Broncos downed a punt at Kent States 1, and on the next play linebacker Robert Spillane stuffed Rankin in the end zone for two points.The play of the game, Fleck said.The Broncos got the ball back, and Johnson, primarily a blocking back, picked up 35 yards on four carries before Franklin scored his 39th career TD, tying the school record held by Jerome Persell (1976-79).KKent States defense was missing its best player as star safety Nate Holley was suspended indefinitely following his arrest on felony kidnapping charges. http://www.jordan11uk.com/women-s-air-jordan-11-retro-basketball-shoes-royal-blue-136046-064.html. Holleys twin brother, Nick, Kent States quarterback, rushed for 141 yards.It was a tough, hard-nosed football game, Kent State head coach Paul Haynes said. Our guys fought like crazy for as long as we could.The Broncos were the last team in the country to commit a turnover, and that didnt come until their seventh game. But Franklins fumble on their first offensive play put them behind.Franklin had the ball jarred loose and it was picked up by Kent State defensive back Najee Murray, who returned it 47 yards to make it 7-0 just 2:07 into the game.That really lit a fire in me, Franklin said.Western Michigan had not trailed by more than seven all season, and showing the kind of poise Fleck preaches daily, the Broncos scored the next 13, pulling within one on Butch Hamptons 23-yard field goal on the final play of the first half.GROUND AND POUNDMost of the game was played in a light rain, which got heavy at times and made it difficult to throw. Western Michigan turned to its running game and picked up 329 yards rushing.We knew we would have to run the ball, Fleck said. Were a two-dimensional team. We can beat you either way. We dont have to rely on one.THE TAKEAWAYWestern Michigan: A national title may be out of the question, but the Broncos, who were 1-11 four years ago, are in a class with Alabama, Michigan, Clemson and Washington as the only unbeaten teams left. They showed their balance as star wide receiver Corey Davis was held to one catch for 18 yards after getting 12 for 272 yards last week.Kent State: Once again, the Golden Flashes played well but couldnt finish. Four of their losses have been by 15 combined points.NEXTWestern Michigan: The Broncos get back on a normal schedule and return home on Nov. 19 to play Buffalo, which is just 2-7.Kent State: The Golden Flashes play again next Tuesday night, when they visit Bowling Green, 0-5 in the conference and 1-8 overall.
