If Norris Trophy-nominated defenceman Kris Letang cant come to a long-term deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins, his preferred landing spot would be with the Toronto Maple Leafs, according to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Bill Ranford Jersey . Speaking to Jim Tatti and Mike Hogan on TSN Radio 1050s Game Night on Wednesday, Rossi explained why such a scenario could take shape. "Kris is a little bit curious about where he stands long range in the Penguins plans," he told TSN Radio. "He has read reports of mine that there are people within the Pittsburgh organization that thought Paul Martin was the better defenceman last year, and there has been a sort of a hesitation on a willingness to commit to him (Letang) to a long-term deal at elite defenceman money. "Ive been told that if the Penguins couldnt reach some sort of understanding with Letang, and the belief was they wouldnt be able to sign him to some sort of deal, that Toronto has emerged as a preferred landing spot - perhaps by Letang. It would be a place that he would be willing, if dealt, to perhaps sign a long-term deal." Where possible trades are concerned, Letang himself has no final say on who his next team would be. "We havent discussed the Toronto Maple Leafs, period," Letangs agent Kent Hughes told TSN on Thursday morning. "Our focus has been on trying to conclude a deal with Pittsburgh." Rossi also made it clear that Pittsburgh remains keenly interested in signing Letang to an extension. "General manager Ray Shero has been very public since the lockout ended that he wants to retain Letang, but the Penguins have committed a lot of money to Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin and they have also committed no-movement clauses to both of those players," he explained. "Theyre very deep in their system on defence." Letang had five goals and 33 assists in 35 games for the Penguins this season. Rossi noted that Pittsburghs price to deal the 26-year-old Montreal native would be quite high. "If the Penguins are going to move Letang they would want to deal with a team that could provide at least one roster player in addition to a first-round pick and a top prospect...if not two roster players in addition to a first-round pick," explained Rossi. "But I dont think were quite there yet and I dont know that they Penguins and Leafs have had any discussions." The Penguins traded Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes at the NHL Draft a year ago when Staal declined to sign a long-term extension with Pittsburgh. Boyd Gordon Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Ty Rattie Jersey . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. http://www.wholesaleoilersjerseys.com/?t...-messier-jersey .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers have two of the best rookie starting pitchers in the National League -- Zach Davies and Junior Guerra.Davies, a 23-year-old prospect acquired from the Orioles last summer, fits the mold. Guerra, however, is hardly what one would consider an up-and-comer.A 31-year-old journeyman who spent four years pitching outside of affiliated baseball, Guerra has not only stabilized the Brewers starting rotation but he also owns some of the best numbers of any pitcher in the leagueGuerra will take the mound on Sunday in the first-half finale against the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park.Called up on May 1 to replace Taylor Jungmann, Guerra has gone 6-1 in 12 starts and after not allowing a run in 15 1/3 innings over his last two starts, his 2.93 ERA would put him 14th in the league if he had enough starts to qualify among league leaders.Hes faced the Cardinals once already this season, allowing four runs -- three earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in a 3-1 loss at Miller Park.That was the last time that Guerra took a loss. Since then, hes 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA.It feels like hes even getting better, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Guerras last outing. In the biggest spots he seems to step up even a little more.Its quite an impressive accomplishment for a player who was almost an afterthought when he was claimed on waivers last fall from the White Sox.You just have to thank God that he gave you this opportunity of having a good first year, Guerra said. You just have to keep working hard because nothing is guaranteed.Guerra will try to prevent another series victory for the CCardinals, who are 12-0-1 in the last 13 with Milwaukee and have taken 26 of 27 since Milwaukees three-game sweep in June of 2011. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Jersey. To keep that streak going, St. Louis will turn to veteran right-hander Mike Leake, who is looking to snap a personal four-game losing streak.Leake allowed five runs over five innings his last time out, but in two meetings with Milwaukee this season has allowed six total runs in 12 innings.Leake has had plenty of experience with the Brewers, playing all but one half-season of his seven-year career in the NL Central. In 12 career starts against Milwaukee, hes 3-4 with a 4.58 ERA and 3-2 with a 4.81 mark in eight starts at Miller Park.The Cardinals have battled a slew of injuries over the last week, losing three players to the disabled list in the three days leading up to the Brewers series.However, St. Louis seemed to have dodged a bullet on Saturday, when tests on right-hander Trevor Rosenthals left hamstring came back negative, averting yet another disabled list entry.St. Louis did play without left fielder Matt Holliday, who battled ankle tightness Friday, but Matheny said Holliday was available to pinch-hit, if needed, and could be back in the lineup on Sunday.We were a little short, Matheny said Saturday after the Cardinals 8-1 victory. But Holliday was available to come and hit late and he could possibly be ready tomorrow. We had good results back from Trevor (Rosenthal). Its going to be day-to-day with no DL, it looks like.

Two teams dealing with off-the-field problems will square off on Sunday in a key battle in the NFC East. Cheap Cam Fowler Jersey .The Philadelphia Eagles (4-3) travel to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., for a 1 p.m. kickoff against the New York Giants (4-3). Both squads will be looking to gain ground on the Dallas Cowboys (6-1) in the crowded East.The Eagles will be doing so without wide receiver/kick returner Josh Huff, who the team released Thusday after he was arrested on the Walt Whitman Bridge that connects South Philadelphia to New Jersey on Tuesday morning.According to the Delaware River Port Authority, Huff was stopped at approximately 11 a.m. heading to New Jersey for speeding. Huff had a gun, loaded magazine (which wasnt in the gun) and less than 50 grams of marijuana in his possession.He is also facing charges for DUI, speeding and, because the windows of his vehicle are tinted, obstructed view.Obviously Im disappointed, Eagles coach Doug Pederson told reporters on his weekly conference call Wednesday. Its not what you want on a players day off to see happen. He and I spoke about it privately.Its one of the things I talk about all the time with players. You just try to eliminate distractions and take care of your business outside of the building. He understands. Obviously, its out of our hands at this point. We just got to see where it goes.That incident follows a charge that linebacker Nigel Bradham had a loaded gun in his backpack at Miami International Airport during the Eagles bye week in October.The Eagles certainly would have benefitted from having the speedy Huff on the field. He possesses game-changing ability for an offense that lacks a big-play receiver. In last weeks overtime loss to Dallas, Huff reeled off a 53-yard kick return that set up an Eagles field goal. The return was the third in as many games of 50 yards or more for Philadelphia.Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz has completed 65.8 percent of his passes, but the majority of his passes are of the dink-and-dunk variety. He is only averaging 6.69 yards per pass, mostly due to poor pass protection. Wentz has been sacked 15 times.Defensive tackle Bennie Logan returned to the practice field in a limited capacity for the Eagles on Wednesday. Logan suffered a groin injury in the loss at Washington and has missed the past two contests. Fellow defensive tackle Taylor Hart was sidelined with an ankle injury.Pederson said guard Allen Barbre is week to week with a hamstring injury. Stefan Wisniewski will start at left guard if Barbre is unable to play, according to Pederson.The Eagles have lost three games on the road and are still in search of a division win.I think the emphasis is greater, for sure, Pederson said about the clash with the Giants. Teams that want to make the postseason, obviously have to handle their division. Right now, weve put ourselves in a little bit of a hole.So, yeah, the importance of winning this game is probably a must for us in the division.The Giants, coming off their bye week, will unveil their new kicker, Robbie Gould, to the home fans for the first time. Gould replaces Josh Brown, who was cut by the Giants last week after police documents revealed admissions of repeated domestic abuse against his wife.Gould was successful in his only field-goal attempt in a 17-10 win over the Rams in London two weeks.Giants general manager Jerry Reese refused to discuss the Brown situation with reporters this week, saying, Im not going to talk about Josh Brown. I dont think it makes sense for people to keep talking about that right now. I wish healing for him and his family and everybody involved.The Giants have yet to establish a significant running game halfway through the season, and they will find it tough sledding against an Eagles defense that give up 114 yards on the ground per game.New York is last in the NFL in rushing, averaging just 70 yards a game. Rashad Jennings leads the group with 142 yards. Look for rookie Paul Perkins to share the workload.The Eagles defense is third in the league in sacks, those sacks having come from 12 different players, including defensive end Brandon Graham and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, who share the team lead in sacks with 4.0 each.About one in three snaps they pressure, said Giants head coach Ben McAdoo of the Eagles. Theyre not a high-pressure team per se -- it depends on the situation. They do a nice job with their defensive line, creating the pressure, squeezing the edges and getting their front up the field. They rotate a lot of different guys that way.All 53 Giants players practiced this week. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) was one of seven players who was listed as limited in practice. Beckham told Giants.com that he is about 85 percent recovered from the injury, which he incurred in Week 6 against the Ravens. Beckham admitted that he was only at 65 percent healthy in the victory over the Rams before the bye. Cheap Kevin Bieksa Jersey . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. Cheap Jean-Sebastien Giguere Jersey . Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. http://www.wholesaleducksjerseys.com/ . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Rob Marberry made 10 of 13 shots for 22 points and he grabbed eight rebounds as Lipscomb beat Sewanee 96-53 on Friday for the Bisons 14th straight win in the series.Marberry, a sophomore transfer from Western Kentucky, had 16 points and six rebounds in the first half as Lipscomb led 42-22. The Bisons scored the first six points of the second half for a 26-point lead.Josh Williams added 14 points and six rebounds for Lipscomb, which returned four of five starters from last season. Michaeel Buckland had nine points and 10 rebounds as the Bisons outrebounded Sewanee 47-27. Cheap Ducks Jerseys. .Jorden Williams scored 13 points and Hunter Buescher added 12 for Sewanee. Bradley Pierson, the 22nd head coach in program history, coached his first game for the Tigers.Lipscomb limited Sewanee to just 16.7 percent shooting in the first half and the Tigers finished at 35.6 percent.

For all the ways in which the image of a young Muslim woman proudly playing the national sport offers a modern, hopeful interpretation of liberté, égalité, fraternité and the future of France, there is also something ancient and familiar about Jessica Houra-dHommeauxs passion for soccer. Alize Johnson Jersey .Growing up in Angers, not quite 200 miles southwest of Paris, Houra-dHommeaux played for the same reasons as generations of French children, albeit most of them boys for many of those years. She watched her father play and coach. She watched an older brother play. She played because it was what she knew.So even if the larger culture in which she grew up was, at best, indifferent (and, at worst, openly resistant) to a young womans passion for a sport long dominated by men, her connection to the field not only endured but grew stronger. It remains the bond with her father even after his death. That he never saw her play for the national team doesnt matter.I want that he was proud of me, Houra-dHommeaux said in her second language. So its for that, I think, I still play football. Because I know that he was proud of me when I was [playing for a youth] national team. I do everything knowing hes proud of me now. Its my force, its my inspiration.In dozens of forms, each person with her own story, that explains how a generation of French players convinced a country to accept and embrace the womens game. It became impossible to ignore their passion because it was so familiar. It burrows down into a person and becomes part of them.They gave France the team people wanted to believe in. They made themselves matter to people. And now because they do, they need to give France a champion. That is part of the bargain.Which womens team has the most at stake in the Olympics? The obvious answer is host Brazil, and at least symbolically, its inarguable. To win gold in Rio de Janeiros Maracana, especially in light of missteps by the iconic mens national team in recent years, would be a powerful statement. But it would likely be of more symbolic utility than practical. The infrastructure to consistently develop and support the womens game isnt going to spring up overnight in Brazil.A gold medal, not an impossibility based on Australias World Cup showing, would change the paradigm in the country. Another win would only add to the power wielded for change by American players.But three years ahead of the 2019 FIFA Womens World Cup, France has an opportunity unique to the field. To win gold would in some ways be a small step for a team that played for bronze four years ago and is ranked third in the world at the moment. That small step could ensure the giant changes.Entering the 2011 World Cup, France had qualified just once previously for either that event or the Olympics. The French didnt advance out of the group stage in a European Championship until 2009, and even then, they were outscored in the tournament. The invisible line that ran through Western Europe, separating a successful sport in Germany and the Nordic countries from the soccer chauvinism of the rest of the continent, traced the northern border of France. It was why several French players posed nude before that 2011 tournament, their answer clear in asking what it would take for their country to pay attention.A lot can change in five years.According to UEFA statistics, France is now one of seven European nations with more than 60,000 registered female players (73,484 in 2014-15), the only such country south of that invisible line of cultural separation. With more than 1.8 million total registered players in France, the divide between genders remains a chasm, but the 2014-15 figure represented roughly a 25 percent increase on even two years prior. That mirrors the anecdotal experiences of those involved.When I begin, womens football is not so popular, Houra-dHommeaux recalled of the 1990s. The people when I told them I play football, they say What? You play football? Its weird. So it was not so easy at the beginning.Houra-dHommeaux is only 28, but she already spans multiple eras of womens soccer in France. When she began to play for the Paris Saint-Germain womens team and the French national team less than a decade ago, soccer was not her sole occupation. It could not be. She still worked more than 30 hours a week in a clerical job in the medical field, practicing and playing games around that schedule. But Qatar Sports Investment bought PSG in 2011 and, in addition to pouring millions into the mens team, invested the resources to make the womens team fully professional and one of Europes elite. Only then did Houra give up her job outside of soccer. (After seven seasons with PSG, Houra-dHommeaux moved to Lyon, Frances other giant of womens soccer.)Again, change happens slowly. Only a handful of clubs in the top division of French womens football are truly professional. There are perhaps dozens of female players who are able to make soccer a full-time career. Many of those stars are brought in from abroad to bolster the ranks of PSG or Lyon (given the salaries available in the National Womens Soccer League, that is not necessarily different than in this country). But the opportunity does exist, an evolution that happened in real time for a generation of players.It was hard for my life with my family, Houra-dHommeaux said of balancing two careers. Since I play just football, its easy because Im just focused on football. Im not tired at the end of my work day, and I can have a good time with my family. I think its important to have good time with your family if you want to be good at football because when you are happy outside of football, in your life, I think you are better and better on the pitch.The cause and effect of change in France is muddled, as it often is in reality. Coming on the heels of a disastrous and nationally embarrassing effort by the mens team in the 2010 World Cup, when French players boycotted a training session and then exited in the group stage, the run the womens team made to the semifinals of the 2011 World Cup in nearby Germany catapulted womens football into the spotlight. The womens team then made it to the semifinals of the 2012 Olympics, while the wounded mens team quietly bowed out of that years Euros.The timing was fortuitous. But when the French womens team seized its moments in 2011 and 2012, it marked the product of more than a decade of preparation, a concerted effort to raise the level of play. Girls were finally allowed to live and train alongside boys at the national training center, commonly known as Clairefontaine, a decade after it opened its doors. Among the early beneficiaries were many of the players on the 2011 or 2012 teams, players like Houra-dHommeaux, Camille Abily and Laura Georges.What happened in 2011 and 2012 -- the arrival of a golden generation that also included Louisa Necib, Wendie Renard, Elodie Thomis and so many more familiar names -- altered the map of womens soccer. It birthed a new power.Players are not afraid anymore to play against Germany, to play against the U.S., said?Georges,?the veteran defender who was forced to withdraw from the team shortly before the Olympics because of injury.?Before there was like a supremacy of the really big teams, and we were kind of scared. We could not even really play together, we were just playing long ball, we were not keeping the ball and playing around. We were kind of scared of the big teams. Now players are more comfortable playing against the big teams. We have more experience, more confidence.When France beat the United States 2-0 in February 2015, it marked the Americans first loss in the history of the series. But far from embarrassing, it served as an important component of the preparation for the Americans World Cup title that followed. Few teams pushed the United States the way France did.Its the trifecta, its mentality, technique and athleticism, U.S. coach Jill Ellis said of what makes a program elite. When I took over [the U.S. program], I said to our team that we have the beauty of having all three. Many countries dont have two out of three. France certainly has the athleticism and technique. People would question their mentality, just in terms of they havent won a big event yet, but I wouldnt knock them there. On any given day in our game, any of these top four teams can beat each other.But they have [technique and athleticism] locked down.What they dont have, as Ellis gently alluded to, is a trophy or medals from a major tournament to show for all the progress. France lost 3-1 to the United States in a 2011 World Cup semifinal and 2-1 to Japan in an Olympic semifinal a year later. France fell victim to a dubious format in the World Cup a year ago -- even as group stage winners, the French were forced into a quarterfinal against Germany. On a day when the French had the better of play but couldnt put away the game, the country nonetheless exited in a penalty shootout.The small sample size notwithstanding, France struggles in big games to finish what it starts.Technically, possession, I think we are pretty good, Abily said of the state of the program. Its our strength, but it needs now to be maybe better -- well, for sure -- in front of the goal. To be more killer, you know.Its great to keep the ball, to play well, but it misses something.That again reared its head this spring, when France, despite some notable absences due to injury, played generally appealing soccer without ever scoring a goal against England, Germany or the United States in the SheBelieves Cup.This problem to score has been the problem for France since the last eight to 10 years, coach Philippe Bergeroo lamented with a perfectly Gallic shrug of the shoulders after that event.At some point, fans will want results. The accessibility and relatability of players will lose its luster. Expectations, in this case, represent their own brand of equality.I think we have to win because [coming close] is almost boring for them, Abily said.That would be a missed opportunity of almost tragic proportions, not because wins and losses really matter that much but because of the potential influence the French team can have.France might be the most diverse team in the womens game, certainly among the handful of elite championship contenders. It is a reflection of a changing society, changing not without tension, not just because of gender but all the labels with which it is too easy to separate each other and isolate ourselves.The daughter of an Algerian immigrant, Houra-dHommeaux was taken aback by the attention she received for a professionally shot photo in which many assumed she wore a hijab -- It was just a capuche, she said, using the French word for hood. But in the same breath, she noted she was proud to represent her faith as a womens soccer player.You see on our national team, there are a lot of black girls or Arabic girls, Houra-dHommeaux said. I think soccer in France, its easier for everybody. ... Its easy to play football in France, and its good for all the people to see that we are white, we are black, we are Muslim, we are Catholic or something like that, but we can play football. Everybody can play football. And I like it for that.Having three years to use the momentum of a gold medal to continue to build the game, at both the youth and professional levels, would set up a potentially remarkable World Cup. To keep this particular team in the spotlight could resonate far beyond the field at a time when others try to divide and terrorize.If we can do it in sport, we can do it in life, Abily said of the diversity. Its important to think like this, especially after the terrorist attacks [in Paris in 2015]. Its very good to be like this now, even more than before. Keita Bates-Diop Jersey .R.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- Manchester United winger Memphis Depay was left out of the Netherlands squad on Friday for a friendly against Greece followed by its first World Cup qualifier against Sweden. Markus Naslund Jersey .Veteran strikers Klaas-Jan Huntelaar of Schalke and Robin van Persie of Fenerbahce were also omitted from coach Danny Blinds 24-man squad, while a debut was given to 21-year-old PSV Eindhoven midfielder Jorrit Hendrix.Blind appeared to be opting for youth over experience in the qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but that policy did not help 22-year-old Depay, who has struggled for form since moving from PSV Eindhoven to Old Trafford last year.Its important for him to first focus fully on getting into the first team at Manchester United, Blind said. From there, he needs to play more and hopefully he will then put himself back in the picture.Tottenhams new striker, Vincent Janssen, will look to continue his impressive international form -- the former AZ Alkaar star has three goals in five matches since making his debut in March.The Netherlands, which failed to qualify for the European Championship, takes on Greece on Thursday in Eindhoven, and plays its first Group A qualifier against Sweden in Solna on Sept. 6.---Netherlands:Goalkeepers: Jasper Cillessen (Barcelona), Maarten Stekelenburg (Everton), Jeroen Zoet (PSV Eindhoven).Defenders: Patrick van Aanholt (Sunderland), Daley Blind (Manchester United), Jeffrey Bruma (Wolfsburg), Virgil van Dijk (Southampton), Kenny Tete (Ajax), Joel Veltman (Ajax), Ron Vlaar (AZ Alkmaar), Jetro Willems (PSV).Midfielders: Riechedly Bazoer (Ajax), Jorrit Hendrix (PSV), Davy Klaassen (Ajax), Davy Proepper (PSV), Wesley Sneijder (Galatasaray), Kevin Strootman (Roma), Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool).Forwards: Steven Berghuis (Feyenoord), Bas Dost (Wolfsburg), Vincent Janssen (Tottenham Hotspur), Luuk de Jong (PSV), Luciano Narsingh(PSV), Quincy Promes (Spartak Moscow).

Subscribe today!Detroit Red WingsOverall: 44 Title track: 15 Ownership: 9 Coaching: 82 Players: 52 Fan relations: 22 Affordability: 61 Stadium experience: 92 Bang for the buck: 71 Change from last year: -30Once deemed the gold standard for NHL franchises, the Red Wings dropped 30 spots in our fan ratings this year. Despite their 44th overall ranking, the teams ownership remains beloved by the Red Wing fans due in part to their relentless loyalty and drive to win. Theres hope that the teams shift from the Joe Louis Arena to Little Caesars Arena can help make the Red Wings one of hockeys top franchises again.Whats goodIf theres one thing that Detroit hockey has figured out, its the ownership earning fans trust and appreciation. Owner Mike Ilitch understands what it takes to be the best boss in all of sports. And for Ilitch, that means building a new stadium and rearranging staff and players to bring out the Red Wings fan in everyone. The Ilitch family exudes hometown pride and that shows in their efforts to make the fan experience central in the design of the arena and surrounding neighborhood, known as The District Detroit, according to the Red Wings public relations department. The Red Wings ownership maintains a top 10 ranking simply because it strives to continue to enhance the fan experience and foster a community in Detroit, even after experiencing some bumps in the road.Whats badThe Red Wings slipped into the 92nd ranking of stadium experience, but dont let that fool you. The anticipation of Litttle Caesars Arena, slated to be the Red Wings new home in 2017-18, can quickly make any fan forget about the third-oldest NHL arena killing their hockey vibes. Daniel Sedin Jersey. With innovation in mind, the $627.5 million home of the Red Wings will ease any lasting memories of the Joe Louis Arena for the fans. Just the conception of this new arena has already led to a record rate of season-ticket renewals for Detroit. This new arena has one goal in mind: the fans. Bringing fans as close to the action as possible and creating a blueprint that matches the steep incline and loud atmosphere of hockeys most intimidating arenas, says the PR spokesman.Whats newWhen it comes to the players ranking, the Red Wings took a huge blow, dropping from 16th to 52nd. The team won 41 games and ranked third in the Atlantic Division, but that wasnt enough for fans accustomed to titles. The coaching staff, too, cant seem to gain momentum with the fans after promoting AHLs Jeff Blashill last year. Down 25 spots, the Red Wings staff continues to try to gain back the trust from the fans. With the hopes of gearing up for a more prosperous season, Blashill and general manager Ken Holland announced earlier this month that Justin Abdelkader will join Henrik Zetterberg and alternate captain Niklas Kronwall as the official leadership team. Just like they await their new arena, the fans are eager to see what Detroit is made of this year.Next: Washington Capitals?| Full rankings China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

Spurrier had held a similar role at South Carolina, where he retired in October as head football coach.Spurrier, 71, was already scheduled to be honored during the Gators season opener this year when the football field will be renamed for him -- Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.My wife, Jerri, and I are extremely thrilled to be returning home to our alma mater, and to Gainesville where we met on campus over 50 years ago, Spurrier said. Im very appreciative to athletic director Jeremy Foley, head coach Jim McElwain and Phil Pharr of Gator Boosters for their role in making this happen.I also want to say thanks to the University of South Carolina for allowing me to be their coach from 2005 to 2015. Also a special thanks to all of the Gamecock players, coaches and fans that allowed our teams to set so many school records. I will now pull for South Carolina to win every game but one, just as I did when I pulled for Florida to win every game but one as the Gamecock coach. I will try my best to promote and assist in any way I can to help the Gators to continue to be one of the very best athletic programs in America. I admire what Coach McElwain and his staff accomplished last year. Im anxious to watch the Gator football team as they strive to be the best in the SEC and the nation in the years ahead.McElwain told ESPN.com earlier this month that Spurrier attended three of the Gators practices during the spring, and McElwain said it was a treat to talk football with the Head Ball Coach after those practices.I look forward to visiting with him on a lot of occasions and picking his brain on a number of issues, McElwain said. Its a credit to Jeremy to get him back home where he belongs. More than anything I look forward to actually talking to him and being aroundd him rather than just saying hello to his statue on my way to work every day. Cheap Pistons Jerseys For Sale. Spurrier was a Heisman Trophy quarterback for the Gators in 1966 and returned to his alma mater as head coach in 1990. He led Florida to its first SEC championship in football in 1991 and won six SEC titles in Gainesville, including a national title in 1996. He stepped away following the 2001 season and took the Washington Redskins head coaching job.The NFL didnt agree with Spurrier, and he returned to the college game in 2005 when he accepted the South Carolina head coaching job. Spurrier led the Gamecocks to unprecedented heights, including three straight 11-win seasons from 2011-13. He burned out toward the end and walked away during the middle of the 2015 season when South Carolina started 2-4. Spurrier said he, in effect, fired himself.We are grateful for the impact that coach Spurrier had on our football program and on our university, South Carolina athletic director Ray Tanner said in a statement. He has been a good friend to me and was a tremendous supporter of all of our programs during his tenure, which was the most successful era in school history. It was a pleasure to work with him and I enjoyed the many conversations we had over the years. We wish Coach and Jerri all the best as they return to their alma mater and the campus where they met over 50 years ago.Steve and Jerri Spurrier celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary down in Florida earlier this month.Its a great day for the Gator Nation to be able to welcome Coach Spurrier back home, Foley said. He has served as a tremendous ambassador to the university and the athletic department for 50-plus years and its only fitting that at this point in his career, he is back in Gainesville. Being a Gator has always meant so much to Coach Spurrier, but it means just as much to us have him come home.

The fall of Michigan State could end up being the most dramatic in Big Ten football since the Gerald Ford-led Michigan Wolverines went from first to worst 82 years ago. Nick Bonino Jersey .The Spartans won the conference championship last season for the second time in three years and appeared in the College Football Playoff. Final record: 12-2, including 7-1 in Big Ten games.This year theyre 2-7 and 0-6 in the conference. With East Division contenders Ohio State and Penn State the finishing opponents, Michigan States best and perhaps last chance at a Big Ten victory comes Saturday when Rutgers, also winless in the Big Ten, visits Spartan Stadium.Its amazing when you really take it into context where were at right now compared to where we were at last year, coach Mark Dantonio said. But thats reality. Reality sets in on you.The most stunning drop-off by a defending champion occurred in 1934 with coach Harry Kipkes Michigan team.The Wolverines won the 1932 and 33 national titles under the Dickinson System, a widely respected formula for crowning champions in that era. Those teams combined to go 15-0-1, outscore opponents 254-30 and record 11 shutouts.A spate of injuries hit in 1934, and the two-time defending conference champion went 1-7 overall and 0-6 in the Big Ten. The Wolverines were outscored 143-21 and shut out five times.In `32 and `33, we were undefeated, and then in `34 we had a tough, tough year, Ford, the team most valuable player who became the 38th U.S. president, told the Michigan Daily in 1994. In those years, our offense was called `a punt, a pass, and a prayer. We had an outstanding passer, Bill Renner, who broke an ankle before the season started. Our punter, John Regeczi, was the greatest college punter I ever saw and he ruined his knee. All we had left was the prayer.The 2016 Spartans, like the 34 Wolverines, have been hard-hit by injuries. Theyve played three quarterbacks and have had different starting lineups on offense and defense every game. Their famously strong defense is giving up 30 points a game and ranks last in the Big Ten in red-zone defense and sacks.We had very high goals coming into this season. I do not think our goals should have been less than they are. I just dont, Dantonio said. You cant go to a College Football Playoff, win the Big Ten the last two out of three years, sit there and say, `Gee, guys, I hope we go 7-5. You cant do that.Right now, 7-5 would look pretty good.A look at some other notable falls for returning Big Ten champions:1943 Ohio State: The Buckeyes went 9-1 and won their first national title in 1942 under coach Paul Brown. World War II hit the roster hard the next season and the so-called Baby Bucks were able to return only five players and one starter from the championship team. They were overmatched against most opponents and finished 3-5 and seventh in the Big Ten at 1-4.1954 Michigan State: The Spartans lost star running back Leroy Bolden to injury early in the season and were on the wrong end of a bunch of close games while finishing 3-6 and tying for eighth at 1-5. The year before, in their first football season in the Big Ten, they won nine of 10 games.1967 Michigan State: Coming off an undefeated season that included the famous 10-10 tie with Notre Dame, Michigan State went 3-7 overall and dropped to seventh place at 3-4. A 37-7 loss to Houston in late September, the most lopsided in 20 years, marked the start of a downturn in Duffy Daughertys program.1999 Ohio State: John Coopers Buckeyes slipped to 6-6 and tied for eighth at 3-5, losing their last three games and failing to go to a bowl for the first time since 1988. The 1998 team was ranked No. 1 much of the season, shared the conference title with Wisconsin and Ohio State and would have been in position to play in the BCS title game had it not been for a late loss to Michigan State.2002 Illinois: The Illini went 5-7 overall and tied for fifth at 4-4 as Ron Turner couldnt settle on a quarterback, the defense struggled and chemistry issues surfaced. The year before they had gone 10-2 and 7-1 and played in the Sugar Bowl. (The Rose Bowl was the national championship game for the 2001 season.)---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org Filip Forsberg Jersey .com) - Richie Incognito has reportedly been admitted to a psychiatric care unit in Arizona.

PETERSBURG, Fla. EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregons Dana Altman did a fine imitation of a hockey coach when he least expected it.Ahead early in what he considered a developmental game, Altman went with five-man shift changes to spread the minutes among his Ducks, and it worked with 10 players getting between 18 and 22.Preseason All-America Dillon Brooks scored 21 points and Roman Sorkin had a career-high 15 as No. 23 Oregon rolled to a 93-54 victory over Western Oregon on Wednesday night.Brooks, still working his way back from offseason foot surgery, and Sorkin contributed most to the Ducks 50 points off the bench.Its kind of the way it worked out, Altman said. When we got the early lead, I decided to play everybody equal minutes, so it really wasnt my plan going in.Chris Boucher added 14 points and eight rebounds for the Ducks (6-2), who won their fourth straight game and 29th in a row at home. Tyler Dorsey had 12 points.Oregon made nine of its first 12 shots to go up by 14 points early and toyed with the Division II Wolves (4-4) the rest of the first half, shooting 16 of 26 to carry a 48-20 lead into the break.The Ducks scored the first seven points of the second half to cap an 18-0 run and pushed their lead to a high of 51 with 5 minutes to play.Sorkin, who hadnt played in the last four games, had three of Oregons eight 3-pointers and missed only one of his six shots. The 6-foot-10 junior from Israel has played sparingly for the Ducks, averaging just 5.3 minutes in 30 career games, but he made up for lost time Wednesday night.Every time I step on the court I feel like I can make the open shot, he said, so I just let the game come to me.Oregon had a 52-27 edge in rebounds. Jordan Bell led with 12 and Kavell Bigby-Williams had 10.Kavell obviously can help us on the boards, a place where we need help, Altman said, so I thought there were some positives.Brian Berg led Western Oregon with 17 points and had five 3-pointers.BIG PICTUUREWestern Oregon: The Wolves, who won a school-record 31 games en route to the 2016 Division II Final Four, already have as many losses as they did all last season. Austin Watson Jersey. The defending Great Northwest Athletic Conference champions were picked for sixth place this year.Oregon: The soft portion of the Ducks schedule will allow Altman to continue tinkering with his starting lineup, which included the 6-10 Bigby-Williams for the first time Wednesday night. Altman had three of last years starters -- Brooks, Bell and Casey Benson -- among the five coming off the bench at the first media timeout.POLL IMPLICATIONSHome cooking and five unranked opponents to finish its nonconference schedule should give Oregon some rankings bounce heading into its opening Pac-12 games in late December against No. 11 UCLA and USC, also in Eugene.STAT OF THE NIGHT: The Ducks attempted 11 free throws, making nine, before the Wolves, who were whistled for 15 fouls in the first half, tried their first. Oregon finished 23 of 28 from the line, and Western Oregon was 3 of 4, thanks to a 25-7 foul differential.HE SAID IT: Altman saw some body language from his players that he didnt like during the rout. Theyre worried more about missing shots than they are about execution and toughness on defense and rebounding, he said. Weve got to get those thoughts out of their heads. They quit playing when they miss a shot and starting feeling sorry for themselves.UP NEXTWestern Oregon travels to Montana State Billings on Monday night to resume GNAC play. The Wolves beat Concordia (Ore.) 80-70 on Tuesday.Oregon plays the third of five straight home games when it hosts Savannah State on Saturday. The Ducks have all seven of their December games in the state of Oregon, including one against UNLV in Portland on Dec. 17.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Floridas visit to LSU this weekend -- for what was supposed to be a Gators home game -- is the result of an acrimonious stalemate last month over what to do about an impending natural disaster.Southeastern Conference officials hope to avoid having the rescheduling or relocation of future league games handled the way LSU and Florida did it during Hurricane Matthew -- not just because of the logistical headaches and divisiveness it caused, but also because it has become an unwanted story line in the SEC East Division title race.No. 21 Florida, which needs a victory to clinch the East, was supposed to host LSU Oct. 8 . Instead, the Gators must now travel to Death Valley for 16th-ranked LSUs Senior Day.SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said Wednesday that discussions are expected to begin during the next conference athletic directors meetings in December about how to refine the process of rescheduling games that need to be delayed or moved, with the aim of producing recommendations which will be forwarded to university presidents for approval. Currently the conference commissioner lacks authority to unilaterally make a scheduling change. League rules dictate that rescheduling must be agreed upon by both schools, forcing Sankey to serve as a mediator.The presidents have made clear to me their intention to address our regulations and bylaws in order to establish a clear path to a decision-making process that gives the commissioners office authority to resolve scheduling issues in a fair and timely manner, Sankey said in an email to The Associated Press. We will use the Hurricane Matthew experience to analyze our processes and to provide clarity to our regulations and bylaws in order to address future interruptions that may be caused by weather or other circumstances.Florida only agreed to play at Tiger Stadium after Sankey made a determination that was within his authority -- to disqualify from SEC championship contention any school that fails to play the eight league games called for by conference rules and regulations. That made it clear that the Gators would be disqualified if the game wasnt rescheduled somewhere, essentially forcing outgoing Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley to give in to LSU athletic director Joe Allevas demand that LSU retain a home game on Nov. 19, when a visit by South Alabama was originally scheduled.Both teams bought out the non-conference teams they were preeviously slated to host this Saturday, clearing the way for Floridas visit to Death Valley. Daniel Sedin Jersey. Gators cornerback Jalen Tabor conceded itll be a little tougher to beat LSU on the road.We love playing in the Swamp, but weve got to go over there, one of the toughest places to play in all of college football, Tabor said. Its going to be a tough challenge.While the Gators are unbeaten at home, theyre 1-2 in other SEC stadiums. And if they lose Saturday, that opens the door for Tennessee to emerge as East champs if the Volunteers win their remaining league games.The Gators arent getting much sympathy from the Tigers or Volunteers, either.I was excited. Its an opportunity for us, Tennessee defensive end LaTroy Lewis said, adding that it definitely caught his attention when Florida was forced to play in Tiger Stadium.As a competitor, I couldnt ignore it, he said.When asked if he empathized with the challenge Florida coach Jim McElwain faces in having to prepare his team for an additional road game in order to win a division title, LSU coach Ed Orgeron responded, No, and then grinned while several around him chuckled at his blunt honesty.For now, McElwain isnt complaining. It wouldnt help if he did -- not this season, anyway.Top college football programs understand it really doesnt matter about who or when or where, McElwain said Wednesday. Its really all about the now, no matter what.Yet, while McElwain withholds criticism of the way rescheduling and relocation was handled during and after Matthew, he said he sees the wisdom in trying to refine policies and contingencies in the event of future postponements.Smarter people will put something together, figure out something that makes it right, McElwain said. Its amazing when some things that you dont ever really kind of think of come up that are totally out of your control. Im not talking this situation, Im talking in general, that we better maybe do something about this should it ever come up again.But theyll do it right. Ive got total trust in the SEC, McElwain added. Its a quality organization led by a guy that knows what the heck hes doing.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org---AP Sports Writers Mark Long in Gainesville, Florida, and Steve Megargee in Knoxville, Tennessee, contributed to this report.

Stuart Binnys ninth first-class century - a 158-ball 156 - gave Karnataka an opportunity to push for full points after they took a 245-run lead over Assam at the Bandra Kurla Complex ground in Mumbai. Assam went to stumps on 48 for 1, with Gokul Sharma, the captain, and Rahul Hazarika at the crease.Assam made early inroads to pick up three quick wickets, including those of overnight centurions Robin Uthappa (128) and Karun Nair (145), whose third-wicket stand was worth 265. Assam were left frustrated, however, as Binny forged two century stands - 131 for the seventh wicket with Shreyas Gopal and 105 for the sixth wicket with CM Gautam (73) - to help post 570.

Each of the top six batsmen got starts, with opener Manendar Singhs 63 the top score. Resuming on the third day from 76 for 2, they lost Ashok Menaria, the captain, for 42 to expose the middle order.

My Wish: Aberg remembers surprising his best friend Katie at Seattle Mariners gameBy: Bryce AbergKATIE AND I spent a lot of time playing together. Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Canada . The earliest memories I have of Katie were playing at her house while my mom got her hair styled by Katies mom. Around age 7, I ended up playing baseball with her dad as my coach. Of course, Katie was on the team as well, and Coach Frank treated her the same way he treated everyone else. She was always the most energetic ballplayer, but she could be intense on occasion; I wouldnt be the first to call her a firecracker. However, regardless of the outcome of a days ballgame, she was always happy to be with her friends -- the team.I first learned there was something wrong with Katie when my mom told me she had collapsed and was in the hospital. I was barely 12 at the time. We learned later that she had a rare form of brain cancer. I talked to Katie on the phone, and it was clear she only saw chemotherapy treatment as a bump in the road. She was a confident girl, even in the face of adversity.Katies wish was to bring her old team -- some of her closest friends -- back?together to watch a Seattle Mariners baseball game. The wish was simple, and for Katie it was perfect because it combined the two things she loved: her friends and baseball. I was ecstatic when I learned I was going to see all of my friends again, but moreover, I would get to see Katie. Everything else was just icing on the cake.On Katies wish day, my former teammates gathered in the outfield at Safeco Field. They were told I would not be able to attend because I had moved to Franklin, Tennessee, the same year Katie and her family moved to eastern Oregon. Except on that day, I was actually standing behind the center-field wall. As the announcer told my friends there was a surprise waiting for them, the wall opened and I ran to Katie. The most memorable part of the entire day came as Katie and I were hugging. She couldnt believe that I was actually in front of her, which prompted me to repeatedly tell her, Im here! Im here!The rest of the day is summed up in the original video segment of her Wish. The next day, however, would be the last time I saw her as we played catch near her hotel. True to our nature, we got into a small competition of who can throw harder while tossing the ball around. It makes me happy that my last moments with her were baseball-related.My mother told me of Katies death when she picked me up from school in the car almost a year later. The reality of her death didnt settle in until a couple of weeks later while I was lying in bed and finally came to terms that my best friend had passed. Those who have felt a similar pain know that realization is not fun.I used to only be able to look at Katies Wish from a childs perspective. It used to be difficult for me to understand the importance of Katies Make-A-Wish experience in the context of everything else going on in her life at the time. As Ive grown older, Ive realized that being able to forget about illness for a day to just have fun is a priceless experience for a child and their family.Katie, you will always be my best friend.My Wish: LeBron JamesBy: Thiago DEliaFOR AS LONG as I can remember, I have loved the game of basketball. It has been a therapeutic tool for every difficult situation Ive encountered. Basketball was light on a dark day and a friend when I felt lonely.My freshman year of high school, I made the school basketball team. I practiced for hours every day to improve my skills. One day while playing, I was accidentally hit by a teammate. Thinking that I might have pulled my groin, I kept on playing. The pain increased until I realized something was not right. I decided to tell my mother.She took me to the local emergency room, where the doctor discovered two tumors on an ultrasound. Within a few days, I had a cancer diagnosis. I will never forget the day I was told I had this awful disease.Soon after my diagnosis, I started a journey I never thought possible. It included surgery and chemotherapy. Chemotherapy made me feel as if I were not myself. I could not do any of the things that were natural daily activities. I couldnt walk, run, eat or get out of bed without assistance.That was the lowest point of my life, physically and mentally. I would think to myself, You just have to make it through today. Just worry about today. I feared that I wouldnt wake up to see a new day. I felt as if I were dying.Two Make-A-Wish Georgia volunteers came to my house to talk to me. I shared my story and my passion for basketball. I shared my love for the Miami Heat and my favorite player, LeBron James.I had my mind set on only one wish: to meet LeBron James and the Miami Heat. It was a long shot, but that was my only dream and true wish. Make-A-Wish Georgia contacted us often to assure us that they were doing everything possible to grant my seemingly impossible request.After patiently waiting, the day finally arrived. As I entered my house, I was surprised to find an ESPN TV crew. Two Miami Heat dancers greeted me at the door and handed me a CD. I put the disc into the player and was amazed to see LeBron James inviting my family to fly to Miami. My excitement could not be contained.My family and I flew to Miami. At the American Airlines Arena, I toured the locker rooms and training facility. We watched live practice. I had to pinch myself as I watched LeBron shooting baskets a few feet from me.After practice, head coach Erik Spoelstra called my name. I ran to the team huddle and met the players. Then LeBron invited me for some one-on-one playing time. For more than an hour, my favorite sports figure and I played basketball together.We talked about my high school and my basketball team. I asked him questions and threw alley-oops to him, and we had a 3-point contest. Later, LeBron presented me with several gifts to remember our time together.The next day, I was courtside watching a game next to the Miami Heat bench and cheering my team on. I was able to greet the players as they left and returned to the bench throughout the game.As if everything I had experienced were not enough, LeBron came over and presented me with his game shoes and autographed them for me after the game.A few weeks later, the Heat won the NBA championship and invited me to join them for their celebration. This was the wish that kept on giving. I will never forget that weekend. Not only was it an amazing experience to play my favorite game with the NBA Champions, but also it was closure from the most horrible time of my life.During my treatment, I constantly asked my mother, Why me? Why did I get cancer? After that incredible weekend in Miami, I found myself asking, Why me? What did I do to deserve such an amazing gift?Make-A-Wish Georgia truly changed my life. I am and will forever be grateful for the way they transformed my lifes worst experience and turned it around to become one of my most cherished memories.My Wish: Alex OvechkinBy: Sam JacobsonGOING INTO my freshman year in high school, my biggest worries were homework and hockey practice. Pretty much the same as every other 15-year-old. That would change rather quickly. When I went to the doctor for a check-up because of a bad cough, I left with news that I couldnt have possibly imagined. I was diagnosed with cancer -- non-Hodgkin lymphoma -- and had no idea what was ahead.A few months after I began what would become two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy, I was approached by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. ?Several ideas went through my head, but my wish ended up being a pretty easy decision. I had no doubt that if I could do one thing it would be to skate with my favorite hockey player, Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals. Months passed before we got the news that my wish had been granted, and it was absolutely worth the wait.During one of my hockey games, after the seniors were introduced, they played an audio recording of Ovechkin inviting my family and me to visit the Capitals in Washington, D.C. We flew out two days later. The next few days would result in some of the best memories I have ever had. We got to hang out with Ovie and the team for three days. We got to go to two games and watch him score the overtime winner in the second. But that wasnt even the best part. We went to their practice facility to meet the entire team and coaching staff. After they finished practice, we went into the locker room where they had a locker set up just for me with brand new gear. Then my brother and I skated with Ovechkin and a few other players for almost an hour. That was probably the coolest hour of my life.Make-A-Wish, in my opinion, is one of the greatest organizations in the world because it gives kids like me a total vacation from whatever they are currently going through. My family and I are forever grateful because they gave us hope and joy, not only for those few days but for the rest of my treatment.I have now been done with my treatment for a little more than three years and am a perfectly healthy 20-year-old kid. I am still a huge Capitals fan and watch just about every game. Right now I am working in the golf business. I have also done a lot of volunteer work with Make-A-Wish Idaho, from speaking engagements to helping prepare for fundraising events.My Wish: Dale Earnhardt Jr.By: Jeffrey BuzzellAT THE TIME of my wish, I was experiencing the effects from a kidney disease known as Alport syndrome, a genetic disease that targets the kidneys and slowly wears away their functionality. Being diagnosed at the age of 8, a little over 13 years ago now, I could not have guessed how such a disease would have such a lifelong impact. By age 15, I started to experience the more severe effects of Alport syndrome such as energy loss, weight loss, my energy level was declining, I was losing weight, and had hearing difficulties. Normal daily routines like school and sports activities started to become a challenge, I had a hard time performing in school and sports due to my lack of hearing, energy, and attentiveness.I first learned about the Make-A-Wish Foundation through my doctors. During my meetings with the wish granters, Stephanie and Joe, I was told, You can do anything you want, seriously, anything. After what seemed like forever, I finally decided what I wanted: to watch a NASCAR race from the pits with the hopes of meeting my favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr.My wish started in May 2010 with a visit to a local go-kart track. Here I am supposedly watching a safety video for the go-karts when out of nowhere Dale Earnhardt Jr. appears on the screen, inviting me to North Carolina to race go-karts and watch the All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. I was so excited that the video actually had to play twice before I grasped the reality of what had just happened.The day came for me to meet Dale, and what I thought was going to be a simple meet and greet turned into something unimaginable. We arrived on Dales property where I was greeted with open arms by a guy I had seen only on TV. After a tour, it was finally time -- time to race those go-karts. Following my sweeping victory (or maybe it was a photo finish), I was crowned the winner. At this point, I thought my wish was officially granted and had come to an end. Not even close.The next thing I know, I am on my way to Dales race shop. But Im not riding in our car, oh no, Im riding with Dale in his car. After a quick tour of the shop and some pizza for lunch, Dale invites me to be part of his pit crew and watch the All-Star race from atop the pitbox. Race day arrives and I am given a tour of the track by the Charlotte Motor Speedway president and Dales crew chief. After meeting racing legends Richard Petty and Jimmy Johnson, it was time to walk on stage with Dale. Walking out from behind that curtain and seeing hundreds of thousands of lights was hands down the most memorable time of my life.Six months after my amazing experience with Make-A-Wish, I was told my kidneys could no longer function on their own and I would need to start dialysis treatments. I spent the next four months going to dialysis and countless doctor visits, but not once did I ever forget about my wish and all the amazing messages I received from people around the world who saw me on the My Wish series on ESPN. On Feb. 22, 2011, I received a kidney transplant from my older sister Jen, and on this day, my worries were over.Today, I am a student at Husson University, where I am finishing my fourth year as a Business Management major. I continue to be involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and sharing my story. Although I will forever live with Alport syndrome, I am enjoying life to the fullest and focusing on my future.My Wish: University of Michigan recruiting tripBy: Stephen LoszewskiMY WISH was to take a football recruiting trip to the University of Michigan. I had always grown up watching the Michigan Wolverines compete in football, baseball, softball, soccer and hockey -- but football was my passion. At the time, I was still undergoing remission treatment for leukemia and dealing with a spinal leak -- the result of years of injections in the base of my spine. But I had been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so I sucked it up and got on the plane to Ann Arbor. The experience was surreal, and I am forever in debt to the Make-A-Wish organization and the University of Michigan.My family stayed in the hotel, where the football team stays the night before a game. The day of the wish, we were given a tour of the campus, which included the admissions building, the athletic department, the training facility and the Big House. I met the entire coaching staff, most of the football team, reviewed film with defensive coach Greg Mattison, played catch with QB Devin Gardner and talked Michigan football with then-head coach Brady Hoke.The real impact of my wish was that it took me out of my sickly mindset for a while. I had spent years in the same place, following the same routine: get up, go to school, try not to get sick, go home, repeat (with occasional visits to the hospital). To be sent to my dream university was one thing, but ultimately, it pulled me out of my unhealthy rut and allowed me the chance to be pleasantly distracted. It reminded me that there was more to the world than just my routine of needles and pills; and that is whats great about this program. Fortunately for me, I was diagnosed with leukemia when I was 15. I cant imagine being diagnosed as a child. For some of those children, this disease is all they know. Make-A-Wish gives them a chance to see that there is more to the world than hospital rooms.After I was cured in July of 2014, I chose to take some time off from academics to enjoy being healthy again. Currently, I am at the University of Central Missouri pursuing a bachelors degree in education with a minor in economics, working two jobs and getting ready to move into my own apartment. But Ive managed to create a balanced schedule that includes both work and a social life.My Wish: Manager for a day with the Minnesota TwinsBy: Michael AcostaAT THE TIME of my wish, I was ten months cancer-free. My wish was to be the manager for a day with the Minnesota Twins. I have been a Twins fan for as long as I can remember and also a big Ron Gardenhire fan. I can tell anyone anything they want to know about the team.When I got to Target Field on the day of my wish, I was taken to Gardenhires office, where a personalized jersey and jacket awaited me. After Gardenhire arrived, we talked strategy about the game and then headed out to the field to meet the players, observe and take part in batting and fielding practice. I then got a tour of the clubhouse and received autographed bats from Jim Thome, Justin Morneau and Drew Butera. I took part in a live news conference with local media, threw out the first pitch and enjoyed the game from a suite with my family.The most memorable part of my wish was the news conference. Answering questions with Gardenhire about the game and joking around with the media really made me feel as if I was part of the team.The Make-A-Wish experience was very special. It allowed me to forget about my cancer diagnosis, surgeries and treatments. I know it has done the same for countless other children as well.My wish with the Twins also helped me pick a career path. The opportunity to spend the day with the team inspired me to pursue a career in sports broadcasting. I just graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a bachelors degree in mass communications, with a radio/TV focus.I am currently a media relations intern for the Great Southwest Collegiate League, in which I do a little bit of everything, including website updates, scoreboard and press releases after the games. I also volunteer and serve as a mentor for Cook Childrens Hospital helping cancer patients cope with their illness, and am still involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee has shown a knack for delivering comebacks, but thats a trait the 15th-ranked Volunteers would rather not have to utilize every week.After erasing double-digit deficits in each of its first two games, Tennessee (2-0) wants to avoid stumbling out of the gates again Saturday when it hosts Ohio (1-1).We have to start faster, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said.Tennessee opened the season by beating Appalachian State 20-13 in overtime after trailing 13-3 at halftime. The Vols didnt take their first lead in that game until the overtime session.One week later, Tennessee was outscored 14-0 and outgained 204-28 by Virginia Tech in the first quarter before the Vols turned things around and rolled to a 45-24 victory .I dont like the slow starts, but I like what happens after the slow starts, Jones said. What you see is a football team that doesnt blink, a football team that keeps playing. But as we grow further and further into the season, we have to start much faster. Its that intensity, starting off with that mentality.Ohio (1-1) doesnt have this problem.The Bobcats have outscored teams 21-0 in the first quarter and scored the games first 25 points last week in a 37-21 victory at Kansas . They must avoid falling behind early Saturday to stay competitive against Tennessee, a 27-point favorite.You look at Tennessee, and theyre athletic all the way across the board, and that includes special teams, Ohio coach Frank Solich said. Youve got to have to really work at getting points on the board. If we can find a way to do that early, it certainly would give us encouragement.Tennessee isnt the only Southeastern Conference program dealing with this issue. No. 16 Georgia and No. 24 Arkansas are among several undefeated teams that came from behind to win each of the last two weeks.But Tennessee is the only 2-0 team at the Football Bowl Suubdivision level that has trailed by at least 10 points in both its games. Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary On Feet. The trend is surprising for a team that faced only one double-digit deficit last season. The Vols also won that game, as they rallied to beat Georgia 38-31 after trailing 24-3.Tennessee knows all too well that no lead is insurmountable, no matter whos in front. Tennessee led in all four of its losses last season and was up by at least 13 points in three of them.The games never over till the end, quarterback Joshua Dobbs said. We were on the other side of it many times last year when the other team came back and beat us when we were up two scores. College footballs a crazy game.Even so, the Vols realize they can make things much easier on themselves if they play better early on.Jones has wondered whether his players are trying to be too perfect at the start of games and noted that sometimes the mind can tie the feet up.Im not really sure whats caused the slow start, but I think weve just got to keep on working each week and getting better, defensive end Derek Barnett said. Its early in the season. Its a long season. ... Weve got a lot of work to do.Jones is concerned that the noon kickoff Saturday could make Tennessee particularly vulnerable to a slow start. He has discussed having more morning meetings this week to make sure his players are ready for the early start time.He also has considered altering the way he structures his practices, perhaps having more team periods earlier in each session to see if it helps his players perform better early in Saturdays game.We know Ohio is a great starting-fast football team, Jones said. They start fast, so well have to start fast.---Online: AP College Football website www.collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap Authentic Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys 2019 ' ' '

CLEVELAND -- C. Air Max 90 Ez Homme .J. Wilson might not have been at his best, though he was good enough for the Los Angeles Angels to gain another victory. Wilson pitched 5 1-3 innings and won his fourth consecutive decision as the Angels beat Cleveland 7-2 on Saturday night, sending the Indians to their sixth straight loss. Asked to describe his outing, in which he allowed two runs despite giving up seven hits, walking four and hitting a batter, Wilson used the word "arduous." Angels manager Mike Scioscia agreed with his pitcher. "It was a tough night for C.J.," he said. "Grind is the right word, but he got some key outs with guys in scoring position. They had baserunners the whole night, it seemed. He had to work really hard." Wilson (12-6) recorded his eighth win in his last 11 decisions. The left-hander hasnt lost since July 5. Ubaldo Jimenez (8-7) allowed three runs in 6 1-3 innings for the reeling Indians, who committed a season-high four errors and trail Detroit by eight games in the American League Central. Cleveland began its seven-game homestand three games out of first, but was swept in four games by the Tigers and has dropped the first two to the Angels, who came into town with a four-game losing streak. "This is a game where how you handle frustration goes so far in how your season is defined, and were going to find out," Indians manager Terry Francona said. Mike Trout drew an eighth-inning walk and has reached base in 40 consecutive games. The Angels didnt exactly knock the cover off the ball. Three of their runs scored on sacrifice flies, two others came on an RBI fielders choice and another scored on a throwing error. "In a game where we didnt really drive the ball, we did a really good job of situational hitting," Scioscia said. "Every chance we had to either get a runner over or score him, we pretty much did so." The Angels, who scored five times in the first inning in Fridays win, saw that momentum carry over. Sacrifice flies by J.B. Shuck and Kole Calhoun broke a 1-all tie in a rally that was aided by Jimenezs throwing error. After Chris Iannetta drew a leadoff walk, Grant Green bunted to the left of the mound. Instead of letting third baseman Mike Aviles make the play, Jimenez fielded the ball and uncorked a wild heave that was several feet over the head of first baseman Nick Swisher. The ball landed on the track well beyond the bag and bounced into the stands, allowing the runners to take second and third. Schucks fly ball scored Iannetta and moved Green to third before Calhouns fly made it 3-1. Michael Bourns RBI single in the sixth cut the lead to one, but the Indians defence imploded in the eighth. Errors by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and second baseman Jason Kipnis, and a wild pitch by Bryan Shaw helped the Angels score four times. Shuck hit a sacrifice fly for his second RBI of the game, while Chris Nelson drove in a run with a single. Erik Aybar added an RBI fielders choice and another run scored on Kipnis wild throw home. Trout was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts and had an RBI fielders choice in the third. Wilson dodged trouble often enough before finally being chased in the sixth. Singles by Yan Gomes and Drew Stubbs put runners at first and second with one out. Bourns single scored Gomes, moved Stubbs to third and ended the night for Wilson, who threw 117 pitches. "I felt I pitched pretty well," Wilson said. "It was a battle to get ahead of guys. Theres no other way to characterize it." Michael Kohn retired Swisher on a popup and Buddy Boshers, making his major league debut, struck out Kipnis. Wilson is 3-1 with a 1.95 ERA in five outings against Cleveland since 2010. Hes also held opponents to two homers over his last 12 outings. Stubbs infield hit scored a run for the Indians in the second. Trout hit into a fielders choice with the bases loaded in the third, tying the game. Iannetta reached base four times on a single and three walks. Ernesto Frieri, who has been removed from the closers role, pitched the ninth. He came into the game having allowed 12 earned runs over 4 2-3 innings in his last seven appearances.
