HOUSTON -- Grambling State running back Martez Carter had to remind himself of advice he frequently hears from Tigers coach Broderick Fobbs. Sergio Aguero Jersey .Coach always preaches that anytime you make a mistake, it happens for a reason, and you have to have a short-term memory, Carter said.Carter rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown and used a dominant second half to help Grambling State overcome a 17-point halftime deficit and Alcorn State 27-20 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference Championship on Saturday at NRG Stadium.Late in the fourth quarter, Carter was nearly in the end zone when an Alcorn State defender knocked the ball loose on the 2-yard line. Luckily for Carter and the Tigers, receiver Dominique Leake was in the perfect place to catch the fumble in midair and step into the end zone to tie the game at 20.Like coach says, every mistake happens for a reason.After a blocked extra-point attempt by Alcorn State, Carter used his short-term memory to put the fumble behind him and scamper into the end zone on a 31-yard touchdown run with less than four minutes remaining to give Grambling State (10-1) its first lead of the game.Grambling State cornerback Jameel Jackson intercepted a pass at midfield with three minutes left to secure the win.The game was a rematch of the 2015 SWAC title game, which Alcorn State won 49-21. The Tigers won their first SWAC championship since 2011 and 24th conference title in school history, the most in the conference.They put us in a bind and dominated us in the first half, but our kids continued to fight, Fobbs said. We scrambled and made some plays and got some key stops, defensively, and were able to come away with the victory.After dominating the SWAC in an undefeated run in the regular season, the Tigers found themselves in unfamiliar territory at halftime as they trailed 17-0.Once we came in the halftime locker room and saw how everybody had the same mindset, I wasnt worried at all, Grambling State quarterback Devante Kincade said. I was ready to get back on the field.Kincade threw for 237 yards and two touchdowns on 15 of 22 passing despite eight sacks.Alcorn State (5-6) got 126 yards rushing and a touchdown from DeLance Turner, who had 16 carries.We gave up big plays and those kinds of things hurt, Alcorn State head coach Fred McNair said. Its just the way it happened and thats the way that second half played out, unfortunately.McNair, who was promoted from quarterbacks coach in February after previous head coach Jay Hopson left for Southern Mississippi, guided his team past a rocky 1/3 start to return to the conference championship game. McNair is the brother of the late NFL quarterback and Alcorn State legend Steve McNair.Grambling State will face North Carolina A&T in the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl on Dec. 17 in Atlanta, the same opponent that beat Alcorn State in the same game 41-34 a year ago.THE TAKEAWAYGRAMBLING STATE: The Tigers dominated the SWAC in the regular season, winning by an average margin of 31.7 points but had to overcome a sluggish first-half start to finish the regular season undefeated in conference play.ALCORN STATE: The Braves dominated the first half and led by three scores at the break before losing momentum early in the third quarter and the lead in the fourth quarter.EMERGENCY KICKERAfter Grambling State kicker/punter Jonathan Wallace was injured on a punting play, he was unable to resume his duties as kicker. Fobbs turned to CB Abubakkar Conteh, who had never previously kicked for the Tigers and the team only recently found out played soccer in high school in Canada. With the exception of the blocked extra-point attempt on a bad snap, Conteh delivered, converting two extra points and handling kickoff duties.RUSHING TO CONCLUSIONSAlcorn State won in its two previous trips to the SWAC title game by dominating the ground game. The Braves more than doubled their opponents rushing yard totals in the previous two victories and were on their way to a similar feat on Saturday, leading the rushing total by a wide margin of 173-96 at the half. In the second half, however, Grambling State outgained Alcorn State 79-16, a key turnaround that ultimately flipped the game.PENALTIES GALOREMcNair acknowledged that committing 15 penalties for 134 yards was a major factor in Alcorn States loss of the early lead. Nine of those penalties for 82 yards were committed in the first half. Comparatively, Grambling State committed 10 penalties for 95 yards.UP NEXTGRAMBLING STATE: The Tigers will represent the SWAC in the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl on Dec. 17 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, taking on North Carolina A&T out of the Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference.ALCORN STATE: The Braves are expected to return most of their starters on offense in 2017, including QB Lenorris Footman and Turner, and graduate just three starters on defense.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. RIO DE JANEIRO -- After making his Olympics debut by running in the mens 400-meter prelims one week ago, LSU senior Fitzroy Dunkley added the title of Olympic Silver Medalist to his name when he ran third leg on Jamaicas 4x400-meter relay team that finished runner-up to the United States in Saturdays final at the Olympic Stadium.Dunkley split 44.82 seconds on the third leg as he teamed with Peter Matthews (45.5), Nathon Allen (44.0) and Javon Francis (43.78) to become LSU Track & Fields 13th Olympic medalist in history.Jamaica was running third behind the United States and Botswana when Dunkley took the baton from Allen at the second exchange, and he handed off to Francis firmly in medal contention in third position at the final exchange. Francis surged passed Botswanas Gaone Leaname Maotoanong on the homestretch and crossed the finish line in second place for the silver medal behind Team USAs winning 2:57.30 for gold.Bahamas, the reigning Olympic Gold Medalists from London four years ago, returned to the medal podium with a run of 2:58.49 to edge Belgiums 2:58.52 for the bronze, while Botswana slipped to fifth place in 2:59.06. Cuba trailed in sixth place with a time of 2:59.53, followed by Poland in seventh place at 3:00.50 and Brazil in eighth place at 3:03.28.Dunkleys silver-medal-winning performance in his first Olympic Games caps an outstanding senior season on the track as he also ran on LSUs 4x400-meter relay team that swept NCAA Indoor and NCAA Outdoor titles during the 2016 season. He was also the NCAA Outdoor Silver Medalist in the 400-meter dash as one of the nations elite quartermilers throughout the campaign.LSUs athletes have now won 17 medals all-time at the Olympic Games as Dunkley is the 13th different athlete to ascend the medal podium at the modern Olympics dating back too Glenn Slats Hardin in 1932. Javier Mascherano Jersey. ardin was a two-time Olympic medalist as the worlds leading 400-meter hurdler in the early 20th century as he secured a silver medal in Los Angeles in 1932 and gold medal in Berlin in 1936. It would be 52 years before another LSU Track & Field athlete would step onto the medal podium when Sheila Echols won a gold medal in the womens 4x100-meter relay in Seoul, South Korea in 1988. LSU also featured Olympic Gold Medalists in Barcelona in 1992 and Atlanta in 1996 as American Esther Jones and Canadian Glenroy Gilbert, respectively, both won 4x100-meter relay titles.The Athens Olympics in 2004 proved to be the programs most successful with five athletes winning six total medals. Derrick Brew and Kelly Willie both won gold medals as members of Team USAs winning 4x400 relay, while Brew also won bronze in the mens 400 meters. John Moffitt struck silver for the United States in the long jump, while Nadia Davy and Ronetta Smith won bronze for Jamaica in the womens 4x400 relay.Richard Thompson of Trinidad & Tobago has won more Olympic medals than any LSU Track & Field athlete in history as a three-time silver medalist, including runner-up finishes for the 100-meter dash and 4x100-meter relay in his debut in Beijing in 2008 followed by a defense of his countrys silver medal in the sprint relay in London in 2012.Samantha Henry-Robinson also won a silver medal for Jamaica in the womens 4x100-meter relay and Ade Alleyne-Forte won a bronze medal for Trinidad & Tobago in the mens 4x400-meter relay in London four years ago.

The names keep flying off this board as new prospects are seemingly called up on an almost daily basis these days. Tim Horton Jersey . In trying to keep up with who has come, and who may be coming, lets put aside the pleasantries and get down to business.Our focus along the Houston Astros infield has been on Alex Bregman in recent weeks, but A.J. Reed beat him to the punch. Reed has appeared on our list before, and he was Keith Laws minor league player of the year for 2015; that said, the slugger had struggled upon promotion to Triple-A until recently. He hit .266/.345/.509 with 11 home runs overall, but he was hitting .282 with 14 extra-base hits (five home runs) in June before his promotion.Reed is a big dude, and there have been questions about his bat speed in the past. There will be some swings and misses, but loud contact in between. Most importantly, he should have the opportunity to work through any issues. His spring competition, Tyler White, failed in his first go-round with the Astros, and Jon Singleton is making millions to play poorly in Fresno. Reed has the most upside and should be afforded some extra leash.Brandon Nimmo also made his major-league debut during the weekend, taking over for the recently demoted Michael Conforto. The 13th overall pick in 2011 has taken the scenic route to the majors, stopping at six different levels en route to the ultimate one. Nimmo is a well-balanced prospect without a true carrying tool; instead, he does a bit of everything at an average or slightly above rate.I am a bit lower on Nimmo than others, and higher on Conforto despite this years struggles. There will be room for both of them one day in the Mets outfield, but for now I would still take the latter over the former despite their current roster positioning. As for Nimmo or Reed, Ill take the risk with Reed, who may be up-and-down with production but has a clearer path to playing time.Who will be next?1. Tyler Glasnow RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates Last weeks rank: 3 Impact categories: W, K Current level: Triple-A Womens Maple Leafs Jerseys . Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. Nikita Zaitsev Jersey . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. http://www.cheapmapleleafsjerseyschina.c...gilmour-jersey/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Thanasi Kokkinakis grand slam season is officially a write off, after the tennis star was ruled out of the U.S. Open.The 20-year-old pulled a pectoral muscle in training, and will now miss the final major tournament of the year which starts on August 29.The injury could also place him in doubt for next months Davis Cup tie against Slovakia in Sydney.Kokkinakis injury is not believed to be related to the shoulder blow which ruled him out of the first three majors of the season.The South Australian has played just one competitive match on the tour this year, going down in straight sets via two ttie breakers in this months Olympics to Portugals Gastao Elias. Auston Matthews Jersey. He was hitting some high forehands and he kind of felt it just a little bit, his manager, Rick Montz, told Fairfax Media.Its worse than a strain, so its going to take a couple of weeks, probably, of not hitting, for that to heal.Kokkinakis has since slipped to No. 841 on the rankings as a result of the of the ongoing injuries, down from his 69th place ranking he held at this point last year.

ORLANDO, Fla. Neal Broten Jersey . -- K.J. Walton scored 20 points and Frankie Hughes added 14 points as Missouri rallied to beat Tulane 67-62 at the Tire Pros Invitational.Kevin Puryear scored 11 points for the Tigers (2-2), who claimed seventh-place in the tournament.Im glad for our team that we finally experienced some success at this tournament, Missouri coach Kim Anderson said. I think maybe we had a little doubt in our minds today and the only way I know to cure that is to play with effort and intensity. We challenged them to do that and they responded.Tulane (1-4) got 18 points from Cameron Reynolds and 10 apiece from Malik Morgan and Kaiin Harris, but lost for the third straight time.This was a tale of two halves for us, Tulane coach Mike Dunleavy said. I thought we did a really nice job with their dribble penetration in the first half. Then they just took it to us in the second half, got to the free throw line a bunch and scored 40 points in the paint on us. Its hard to survive that number.Puryear and Walton, who had two points each in the first half, woke up a stagnant Missouri offense at the start of the second half. They combined for 27 points after halftime.Puryear scored nine of his teams first 11 points of the second half with some strong post-up moves to cut the 10-point halftime deficit to just 36-33 with 15:50 left. A few minutes later, Walton came off the bench and scored 11 points in a 15-3 run to give Missouri a 51-46 lead.BIG PICTUREMissouri desperately needed this win. The Tigers looked uninspired in the first half, but showed a lot of fight and energy in the final 20 minutes. Tulane was just as desperate, but expectations for the Green Wave arent nearly as high as they are for the Tigers. Tulane led most of the game and had an opportunity to steal a win at the end.AT THE LINEMissouri didnt shoot a free throw in the first half, but went 13 of 16 in the second half.Us not shooting a free throw in the first half is not a criticism of the officials, we just werent taking the ball strong to the basket, Anderson said. We didnt abandon the perimeter game in the second half, but we wanted to get the ball to the basket as much as possible and it showed.WRONG DIRECTIONMissouri allowed opponents to shoot progressively better in each of its first three games before halting the run against Tulane. The Tigers limited Tulane to 33.3 percent for the game, after allowing Davidson to shoot 44.4 percent in its last game.UNFAMILIAR TERRITORYTulanes 32-22 halftime lead was the first time the Green Wave has led at the half in three games in the tournament. The advantage didnt last.UP NEXTTulane travels to Georgia Tech Saturday.Missouri will host Northwestern State Saturday. John Klingberg Jersey . Once again, DeLaet finished tied for second at a PGA Tour stop on the weekend, this time at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The pride of Weyburn, Sask. Gump Worsley Jersey . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork.

DETROIT -- While the Detroit Tigers continue their playoff push, the defending World Series champion Kansas City Royals find themselves battling to finish above . Cheap Orioles Jerseys China .500.Kansas City reminded Detroit and everybody else on Saturday that the Royals are, after all, the defending World Series champions. They scored five times in the ninth inning to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 7-4 win that brought them back above break-even at 78-77.For me, its extremely important, Royals manager Ned Yost said Saturday about moving above .500. This group has made history the last couple years and we still have a chance to do it.If we finish over .500, it will be the fourth consecutive year that weve had a winning record and thats only been done one other time in this organization.So we need to do everything we can do to achieve that because we feel next year, getting Moose (Mike Moustakas) back, getting (Lorenzo) Cain back, getting some big pieces back in our lineup, that were going to have an opportunity to be the first club in the history of the Royals to go five winning seasons.Its been a struggle here for us lately, but thats a huge goal for us.Detroit, which finished last in the American League Central a year ago after four straight division titles, is unlikely to overtake first-place Cleveland but expects to be in the thick of the battle for one of the two wild-card spots. The Tigers trail Baltimore by one-half game for the second spot.We just need to play well to get to whatevers next, quite frankly, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Then anything can happen.Ausmus recalled his time as a catcher with the Houston Astros a decade ago.In 2006, the Cardinals were playing like crap the last two weeks of the season, he said. They won the World Series.They lost like nine out of 11. We swept them four straight games in Houston and they went in a tailspin.The Astros trailed the Cardinals by 8 1/2 games with 13 left but rallied to within a half-game with three games remaining. St. Louis hung on to win the division.Detroit will send a third straight young starter out Sunday to face Kansas City. Left-hander Matt Boyd (6-4, 4.16 ERA) is coming off a career best eight-inning start at Minnesota in which he allowed just one run and three hits with seven strikeouts.This will be Boyds second start against the Royals this season. He was beaten in his other start, allowing seven runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings. Boyd has started five times against Kansas City in his two seasons with Detroit, going 1-2 with a 7.43 ERA.Right-hander Edinson Volquez (10-11, 5.25) is on record as saying he would like to return to Kansas City next year. His contract is a mutual option situation.Volquez is 2-0 with a 4.05 ERA in three starts against the Tigers this season and is 3-4 with a 5.46 ERA in 10 career starts against Detroit. Cheap Orioles Jerseys Authentic . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. Cheap MLB Jerseys .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. You tell me whats weirder: that the second-, third- and fourth-ranked teams could lose on the same Saturday for the first time since 1985, or that the effect on the rankings of something so eclipselike in its rarity could be so negligible. Clemson, Michigan and Washington arent going to fall out of playoff contention. In fact, they arent going to fall far at all. Thats a tribute to the credibility they built in the first 10 weeks of the season, a commentary on all the two- and three-loss teams immediately behind them and on the oddity of this weird but entertaining 2016 season.1. To recap, No. 5 Ohio State may be the best team in the Big Ten and not make the conference championship game, and No. 20 USC may be the best team in the Pac-12 and not make its conference championship game. Watch where the Trojans land in the College Football Playoff rankings, and remember that if the Pac-12 champ goes to the playoff, the Rose Bowl gets to choose the Pac-12 team it desires. And either Clemson or Louisville is the best team in the ACC, and one of them wont make that leagues championship game. Can you remind me again why the Big 12 thinks a championship game will solve all its problems?2. Pitt began the season as a dark horse in the ACC Coastal and, thanks to an unexpectedly leaky defense, never brightened up. The Panthers defense has been uncharacteristically leaky -- for a Pat Narduzzi-coached team -- and thats why Pitt has lost four games. But when the Panthers have made stops, they have won big games. Is there another 6-4 team that has wins over two top-10 teams (No. 10 Penn State and No. 2 Clemson)? That should be a source of pride for Pitt. Or a source of what might have been.3. Two consecutive late-game plays in Iowas 14-13 upset of Michigan raised eyebrows. The first came with the Wolverines having a third-and-8 at their 18, with 1 minute, 43 seconds to play and Iowa down to its last timeout. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh eschewed running the ball and forcing the Hawkeyes to use their last timeout. He went for the first down that would have clinched the game. Of course he did. Hes Jim Harbaugh. Michigan quarterback?Wilton Speight, hurried by the rush of Parker Hesse, threw an incomplete pass. Iowa saved its timeout.4. And then came the punt, a low line drive that Desmond King fielded at the Iowa 41 and returned 8 yards.. Cheap Orioles Jerseys. Michigan linebacker?Mike McCrays?right hand raked across Kings helmet, swiveling the returners head. McCray was called for a face mask penalty, although he didnt grab it, and Iowa started that final possession all the way at the Michigan 36. Wolverine fans are not happy with the call. But in not grabbing the face mask, McCray did slap King upside the head. Either way, its a personal foul, right?5. When the barroom debate gets to best marriage of coach and program, it would be easy to pick Saban-Bama, Meyer-Ohio State, Harbaugh-Michigan or Swinney-Clemson. But if you get to the final four and Mike Leach and Washington State arent in there, you better be prepared to defend your argument. Leach thrives as a maverick, and theres no more mavericky Power 5 program than the Cougars out there on the Palouse. Washington State, after an 0-2 start that included a loss to FCS Eastern Washington, has won eight straight in the same season for the first time since 1930. The Cougars went to the Rose Bowl that year.6. The FPI says that the winner of No. 11 Oklahomas visit to No. 16 West Virginia on Saturday night will be the favorite to win the Big 12. Whither the Mountaineers and the playoff? They tried with their nonconference schedule, which included Missouri and BYU, only to be let down. West Virginia could be one of only six one-loss Power 5 teams. But there is room for only three in the playoff, after Alabama, and there may not be even that. No. 7 Wisconsin and No. 10 Penn State, each with two losses, could play for the Big Ten title and get a playoff bid ahead of West Virginia.7. It is difficult to imagine a scenario that would deny Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson the Heisman Trophy. If we are going to question his efficacy Saturday, when he accounted for only 298 total yards and one passing touchdown, then we are measuring Jackson not against other players, but against his own otherworldly performance in the first nine games of the season. Thats not fair to Jackson. He has been far and away the best player in the FBS for 10 games. To my mind, its the biggest runaway in the Heisman since Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith got about 90 percent of the first-place vote a decade ago.

CHARLOTTE, N. Air Max 97 CR7 Black .C. -- The Minnesota Vikings keep finding ways to overcome injuries -and keep finding ways to win football games.Sam Bradford threw a touchdown pass to Kyle Rudolph, Marcus Sherels returned a punt for a score and the Vikings snapped the Carolina Panthers 14-game home winning streak 22-10 on Sunday.The Vikings put the clamps on Cam Newton, intercepting the leagues reigning MVP three times and getting eight sacks, one of those resulting in a safety by Danielle Hunter. The eight sacks were the second-most ever against Newton.We have a great team -- the best team I have been a part of, said Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who had three sacks. We come from every area on the field and we get sacks.Said Newton: They were dictating to us after they got the momentum.The Vikings improved 3-0 despite losing running back Adrian Peterson and offensive tackle Matt Kalil to injuries last week. They lost starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the preseason.The Panthers were averaging 42 points per game in their last three home games, but could do little after bolting to a 10-0 lead. The Vikings held Carolina wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess without a catch.For him not to have any touches is baffling, Newton said of Benjamin. We have to find ways to get him the ball.Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said the Vikings focus was on shutting down Benjamin.We just knew where Benjamin was the whole time, Munnerlyn said. Funchess, we werent worried about him. It was Kelvin Benjamin. Me personally, I think No. 17 (Funchess) is not that good, so we werent really worried about him.Benjamin said the Vikings pressure on Newton helped take him out of the game.Bradford improved to 2-0 as the Vikings starter, completing 18 of 28 passes for 171 yards. With Peterson injured, Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon combined for 70 yards rushing on 22 carries.

We got out and we answered the questions, Rivera said. What happened here was very tragic, and what we were hoping to do was be able to come out and put that aside. We just didnt play very well. I am not looking for excuses.BY THE NUMBERS:Vikings: Asiata got the start at running back but McKinnon was more productive back with 45 yards on 16 carries.Panthers: Cameron Artis-Payne started over Fozzy Whittaker with Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) out of the lineup and ran for 47 yards on 12 carries.

PETERSBURG, Fla. . PETERSBURG, Fla.A massively frustrated Fernando Alonso believes McLaren would have secured the first Q3 appearance of their Honda reunion had Q2 run its normal course. Alonso was heard expressing his annoyance over the radio when he was informed he would not have time for his second flying lap, after a red flag had been thrown for Nico Hulkenbergs flying wheel.Argh, argh, argh, the Spaniard groaned as he made his way back to the pits in 12th place, having missed the chance to set a time on new supersoft tyres. Massively frustrated today, Alonso later told Sky Sports F1. I think the car has the potential to be in Q3. Both McLarens were competitive.We didnt use the new tyres, we didnt use the full engine power, just waiting for that lap to be in Q3 and we didnt even open the lap, so that was frustrating. Nico Hulkenbergs Chinese qualifying comes to an abrupt end after the front left tyre of his Force India comes off and hits the safety barriers. But despite the frustration, Alonso admitted there were positives from the day too given that even Q2 appearances were a rarity for McLaren during their troubled first yeaar back with Honda in 2015. Air Vapormax 97 Japan For Sale.

Alonso, who has said he will manage the pain that remains following the rib injury he sustained in his massive Melbourne accident, is optimistic he will be able to open his account on Sunday.Points are the target - how high is impossible to know, he said.

Opener KL Rahul has been added to Indias squad for the second Test against England, to be played in Visakhapatnam from Thursday onwards. Cheap Air Max 97 Mens . Rahul had injured his right hamstring while batting against New Zealand in Kanpur last month. The team management was satisfied with his fitness after he turned out for his Ranji side Karnataka and scored 76 and 106 against Rajasthan. Under Anil Kumble, it has become a norm for an injured player to play a first-class game before he is selected in the Test side.That Rahul was playing his Ranji match in Vizianagaram, only about 65 km from Vizag, allowed Rahul to join the squad on Tuesday, which is when India began to train for the Test. The promptness with which India have got Rahul back in the squad - the Ranji match in Vizianagaram ends on Wednesday - could mean Gautam Gambhir will be dropped after he scored 29 and 0 in Rajkot. Gambhir made a Test comeback after two years because of injuries to both Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan. He continued to be a part of the squad, which now had 16 players.Kumble all but confirmed Rahul was set to open with M Vijay in the Test. Yes, Rahul is available for selection and you would want Rahul to be in the starting line-up, thats the reason he has been included, Kumble said.He has recovered now, and as per the protocol we wanted him to go and play a first-class match. Since the match was happening very close to Vizag, its good to have him in the squad.Rahul brought with him the confidence of a quick first-class hundred. Im feeling really good, Rahul was quoted as saying by Sportstar Live. You can spend time in the gym, but you never know if your body is fully healed until you play a few games. This game has helped me gain confidence.How important Rahul is for India is clear from how MSK Prasad, the chairman of selectors, was present to monitor his progress. An NCA physio also travelled with Rahul to help in his recovery. To be honest, I did not know that he [Prasad] was here, Rahul said. I dont have to prove anything to anybody. I just focussed on my game, getting fit and getting rid of any niggles.The NCA physio is here to make sure that Im moving well. If the need arises, I can take his help. We want to be 100% sure that Im fit when I come back. It doesnt make sense for me to come back into the team and then get injured again.

The biggest event of the Call of Duty competitive season, Call of Duty XP, is nearly upon us. Juuse Saros Jersey . Starting September 1, 32 teams from across the globe will compete for a chunk of the record-breaking $2 million prize pool, as well as the right to be named Call of Duty World Champions.In order to win the coveted prizes, teams must first survive a best-of-five, round-robin gauntlet against their respective group opponents, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the double-elimination knockout portion of the bracket.After going over who will advance out of Groups A-D, lets break down who will make it out of Groups E-H.Group ETeams: FaZe Clan, Team eLevate, Most Wanted, Giants GamingAdvancing: FaZe Clan and Team eLevateFor all the success FaZe Clan had in last years Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, it certainly hasnt translated to the newest iteration of the game. The unit led by James Clayster Eubanks hasnt been able to crack the upper echelon of the North American scene, despite playing together all year. Fourth-place finishes at both MLG Anaheim and MLG Orlando have helped ease unrest among fans, but its fair to wonder whether another disappointing finish, this time at Call of Duty XP, could destabilize the team entirely. FaZe Clan should easily advance to the knockout portion of the event, and likely should be playing deep into the weekend, considering the level of talent on the roster. But unlike last year, FaZe Clan enters the big event in a muddled situation, and could be one poor performance away from roster upheaval.While Team eLevate failed to make the Stage 2 playoffs, their second-place finish during MLG Anaheim and top-three finish at MLG Orlando has seemingly elevated them into North Americas elite. Considering eLevate sports three players who competed in the Call of Duty World Championship finals last year, namely Ulysses Aqua Silva, Brice Faccento Faccento and Jared Nagafen Harrell, another run at the finals wouldnt come as a surprise to anyone. Considering the teams success in recent LAN tournaments, eLevate, who earned its spot through online qualifiers, could be a dark horse candidate at CoD XP.Group FTeams: Team Infused, Team Kaliber, Lethal Gaming, Tainted MindsAdvancing: Team Infused and Team KaliberAs one of the top teams in the European region, Infused should be handle its opposition in Group F fairly easily. Despite a ninth-12th place finish at MLG Orlando, Infused have seemingly always fared well during the group stage portion of events, posting a combined 6-0 record during the aforementioned MLG Orlando and MLG Anaheim group stage. Its been the lackluster play during elimination rounds that has doomed Infused, a problem that has reared its ugly head on many occasions this season. While a team like Tainted Minds or Team Kaliber could give Infused all they can handle, it would be shock to see one of the top European teams in the world fail to advance to the knockout portion of Call of Duty XP.Speaking of Team Kaliber, the group led by Dylan Theory McGee suffered through a rather pedestrian second half of the season, as the team was relegated from the CWL after Stage 1. Team Kaliber brought onboard Coleman ColeChan Chancey and Nicholas Happy Suda to bolster the roster at MLG Orlando, to mixed results. Placed in arguably one of the most difficult groups of the tournament, Kaliber didnt take a game off either Luminosity Gaming or OpTic Gaming, but performed admirably during both series. If Kaliber can put together that same type of play during CoD XP, they might be able to stave off Tainted Minds, one of the top-tier teams from the Australia/New Zealand region.Group GTeams: Team EnVyUs, Team Orbit ANZ, Cloud9, Team VitalityAdvancing: Team EnVyUs and Cloud9As one of the best teams in all of Call of Duty, Team EnVyUs should need no introduction. Some may have questioned the teams first place finish in the Stage 2 playoffs because they didnt have to face off against some of North Americas top teams; however, they also proved themselves at MLG Orlando with another deep run. While EnVyUs lost to OpTic Gaming in the finals, they did reset the bracket before falling to them in the second and final series of the tournament. Led by 2015 World Champion Jordan Jkap Kaplan, EnVyUs will look for a shot at redemption and likely should be considered a contender to win the entire event.Cloud9, on the other hand, will need to fight in order to make it out of Group G. Led by former Team EnVyUs slayer Patrick ACHES Price, the new-look Cloud9 roster advanced into CoD XP on the heels of a solid run through the North American online qualifiers. While the team is jam-packed with capable CWL pros, like Adam Assault Garcia and Andres Lacefield Lacefield, the rag-tag group of players hasnt had much time to practice with one another, leaving them vulnerable to an upset. If the team can gel, they should be able to surpass a talented Team Orbit ANZ en route to the knockout stages.Group HTeams: OpTic Gaming, compLexity Gaming, PNDA Gaming, Team LDLCAdvancing: OpTic Gaming and compLexity GamingOpTic Gaming enter Call of Duty XP as the prohibitive favorites to win the entire event, as the teams reign throughout Call of Duty: Black Ops III has been nothing short of dominant. An opening round loss to Luminosity Gaming in the Stage 2 playoffs only seemed to reenergize the squad, as OpTic Gaming went on to win MLG Orlando, losing just one series the entire tournament. However, any talk about winning CoD XP must first be prefaced with the fact that OpTic Gaming have never won the World Championship before, finishing in third-place in 2013 and 2014, and a disappointing seventh place finish in 2015. While the Green Wall should be contenders heading into the weekend, history has shown us that anything can happen when it comes to OpTic Gaming at the World Championship.As another team to reconfigure its roster prior to the North American online qualifiers, compLexity Gaming enter CoD XP with an interesting roster comprised of Colt Havok McLendon, Devin Llama Tran, Mike Swarley and the mercurial Christopher Parasite Duarte. While the focus will be, deservedly so, on Parasite, who announced his retirement late in July only to come back to play one week later at MLG Orlando, the real player to watch out for may very well be Havok. The versatile Havok posted a 1.12 KD during Stage 2 with Cloud9, tying for fifth overall in the North American region, and provides option value for compLexity because he is capable of slaying or sniping. If the team can gel and fight through the inevitable stress and frustrations that come with participating in the biggest Call of Duty event of the year, compLexity Gaming should find themselves competing in the knockout stages of the event.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Bubba Watson overcame a bizarre putting mistake during the third-round of the Olympic Golf Course, stubbing a putt on the 14th hole when he was distracted by what he thought was a bug behind his ball.In fact, it was mud that had fallen from the back of his putter as Watson took his backstroke; he tried to stop, recoiled, and ended up hitting the putt about 6 feet. He was originally 35 feet from the hole.It was hilarious, said Watson, who ended up 3-putting the par-3 green for a bogey. What can you do? It was one of those freak things. You have to laugh it off and keep going. Thatll be talked about ffor years. Viktor Arvidsson Jersey. Watson said when he took his stroke, the mud fell off and it scared me. I tried to stop.That bogey derailed a strong round that saw him get within a few strokes of the lead. He followed with a bogey at the 15th as well, then saved a solid par at the 16th after leaving himself an 8-footer. Watson then made birdie at the 17th and finished with a 4-under-par 67, getting into the top 5.Through 54 holes, Watson is tied for fourth, but 6 strokes back of leader Justin Rose.

Russ Brandon abruptly resigned his dual role as president of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills and NHL’s Buffalo Sabres after being confronted by the teams’ owners regarding an alleged inappropriate relationship with a female employee Chicago Bears Jerseys Womens , two people with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press.

The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because it is an internal matter, and owners Terry and Kim Pegula did not provide a reason for accepting Brandon’s resignation in a statement they released Tuesday.

The relationship in question first became apparent to a number of team employees during the Sabres’ visit to New York for a game against the Rangers on Jan. 18, the people said. The trip included the team hosting a fan event at a bar the day before the game.

Kim Pegula will take over Brandon’s roles overseeing the Bills, Sabres and Pegula Sports Entertainment, the company which controls the owners’ numerous holdings.

In a text to The AP, Brandon said he has contemplated stepping down from the job for some time, and felt the timing was right after the conclusion of the NFL draft.

”My goal when the Pegulas purchased the franchise was to reach 20 years with the Bills Adrian Clayborn Jersey Patriots , in which I achieved this past November,” Brandon wrote.

”As grateful as I am for the amazing experience and the incredible people I’ve had the privilege to work with the past two decades, I am just as anxious for the professional opportunities that lie ahead,” he added.

Brandon did not respond to follow-up questions regarding his relationship.

Brandon’s departure comes after the Bills made a big splash in the first round of the draft by trading up to select both Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen with the seventh pick, and Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds with the 16th pick. The new additions join a Bills team that went 9-7 and ended a 17-year playoff drought last season.

On Saturday, the last-place Sabres earned a boost by winning the NHL draft lottery and the right to the No. 1 pick for the third time in franchise history.

”We have a tremendous amount of confidence in the strong leadership team we have built within each of these entities over the last several years,” the statement from the Pegulas read.

”We are excited about the direction of our teams Youth Martavis Bryant Jersey , especially after this past weekend’s NFL draft and NHL lottery results. Our focus remains on building championship teams on and off the field for our fans and community.”

Brandon most recently served as the Bills’ managing partner, was the Sabres alternate on the NHL’s board of governors and a member of the NFL’s business ventures committee.

The timing of Brandon’s exit comes at a time he was supposed to oversee the Bills’ next big venture in determining their future home. Brandon was expected to lead the team’s stadium search committee in deciding whether the Bills should continue playing at their current home or develop a new facility in downtown Buffalo.

He served in various roles with the Bills, involving both marketing and football decisions during a two-year stint as general manager from 2008-09.

He also took the lead in negotiating the Bills’ most recent lease five years ago, which played a critical role in securing the franchise’s long-term future in Buffalo especially following Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson’s death in March 2014.

The lease included a strict non-relocation clause that included a $400 million penalty the team would be forced to pay if it considered moving before 2020.

Brandon also oversaw the Bills’ eventual sale to the Pegulas, who completed their $1.4 billion purchase of the franchise in October 2014.

The Pegulas retained Brandon and elevated him to the role of managing partner. The Pegulas thought so highly of Brandon, the Sabres were added to his responsibilities after the team reached a mutual agreement to part ways with Ted Black in July 2015.

Brandon’s resignation continues a large turnover of Bills executives who served under Wilson. Bruce Popko is the senior holdover and now becomes the top executive as chief operating officer of Buffalo-based Pegula Sports and Entertainment, which oversees the Pegulas’ numerous holdings.

Brandon grew up in nearby Syracuse Customized Atlanta Falcons Jerseys , New York, and began making his mark in Buffalo shortly after being hired by the Bills in 1997 to serve as the team’s business development and marketing director.

He began by spearheading a campaign to transform them into a regional team by expanding the franchise’s fan base to offset Buffalo’s dropping population base.

That process began in 2000, when the team shifted training camp to Brandon’s alma mater, St. John Fisher College in suburban Rochester, to capitalize on the community’s corporate and larger population base.

Later, the Bills boosted their presence across southern Ontario by negotiating a deal to begin playing annual regular-season games in Toronto starting in 2008. The ”Bills In Toronto” series lasted through 2013 before the deal was placed on hold the following year and then terminated by the Pegulas.

Toronto-based media giant, Rogers Communications Youth Baltimore Ravens Hats , paid the Bills $78 million to essentially lease eight games (five regular season and three preseason) during the initial five-year agreement. The price was almost double what the Bills were projected to generate if those games were played at their home facility.

The series also spurred a large bump in season-ticket purchases from across the border. By 2015, the Bills estimated southern Ontario fans accounted for about 18 percent of their season-ticke.

The Sabres’ top prospect Buccaneers Elite Jerseys , center Casey Mittelstadt, is leaving Minnesota following his freshman season after agreeing to a three-year, entry-level contract with Buffalo on Monday.

Mittelstadt is scheduled to join the Sabres on Tuesday, and general manger Jason Botterill said he expects the player to make his NHL debut Thursday Youth Kemoko Turay Jersey , when Buffalo hosts the Detroit Red Wings.

With Buffalo out of playoff contention, Botterill also told reporters before Buffalo’s game at Toronto on Monday that he hoped Mittlestadt would consider representing the United States at the world hockey championships in Denmark in May.

The agreement with the Sabres was reached a little over a week after Minnesota’s season ended by failing to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. The Golden Gophers are also undergoing a change after coach Don Lucia announced he is stepping down following 19 seasons.

The 19-year-old Mittelstadt was selected by the Sabres with the No. 8 pick in the 2017 draft.

Mittelstadt had 11 goals and 19 assists in 34 games and was named to the Big Ten all-freshmen team this year.

He has already made a splash in Buffalo after creating several highlight-reel plays in representing the bronze-medal-winning United States team at the World Junior hockey championship, which was held in the city three months ago.

From Eden Prairie, Minnesota Youth Jason McCourty Jersey , Mittelstadt was named the 10-nation tournament’s MVP after finishing tied for first in scoring with 11 points (four goals, seven assists).

Botterill was impressed by how Mittelstadt excelled at the world juniors.

”With it being here in Buffalo, there was that added pressure,” Botterill told The Associated Press in January. ”And I think you saw a player who instead of succumbing to the pressure Youth Green Bay Packers Jerseys , actually thriving in that type of environment.”

Mittelstadt’s most memorable goal came in a in a 3-2 preliminary-round loss to Slovakia.

With the U.S. trailing 2-1, Mittelstadt stripped the puck from Marian Studenic at the Slovakia blue line and circled back into the zone. Mittelstadt kicked the puck between his legs to avoid a check by defender Michal Ivan and didn’t break stride in cutting across the top of the crease and avoiding goalie Roman Durny. He swept a shot into the open left side with 3:11 remaining.

Mittelstadt joins a Sabres team that has already extended its franchise-worst playoff drought to seven years, and in jeopardy of finishing last in the overall standings for the third time in five seasons.

The Sabres have six games left after playing Toronto, and they are not allowed to demote Mittelstadt to the minors this spring.

Mittelstadt will use up the first year of his contract this season. However Youth Byron Maxwell Jersey , he would not be eligible to be exposed for selection in an expansion draft in 2020, should the NHL approve Seattle’s bid to join the league for the 2020-21 season.

Mittelstadt’s addition comes a day after defenseman Will Borgen elected to skip his senior season at St. Cloud State to sign a three-year contract with the Sabres.

Toler watched all that, smiling, and later stood outside the teams bus saying she was so happy I dont know what to do now.Ive watched this team struggle and get to where it is, said Toler, who has been in her role since 2000. I can honestly say Ive never been so proud in my life of a group of players.It was, of course, a very different story down a long hallway to the Minnesota locker room, where the Lynx quietly answered questions about a painful loss. And coach Cheryl Reeve not so quietly called out the officials for mistakes made in Games 4 and 5 -- formally acknowledged by the league the day after both games -- while also trying to properly credit the Sparks.Thus concluded a season that showcased the talent of the league, some of the issues it faces, the social consciousness of players, a new playoff system that for the most part was well-received, a first-year president trying to establish her authority, and some poignant goodbyes from beloved players.MVP and a title, tooWhat a big year for Ogwumike. She was the leagues MVP, won the WNBA championship, and moved up from vice president to president of the players union executive council.Ogwumike, 26, is just entering her professional peak years. Her efficiency was epic in 2016 -- shooting 66.5 percent from the field in the regular season, 62.5 in the playoffs -- and she and the Sparks have a lot to look forward to.Consider this, too, in regard to the leagues talent. From 2000-07, all eight MVP awards were won by three players: Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoopes and Lauren Jackson. In the nine seasons since, eight different players have won the honor. Ogwumikes teammate, Candace Parker, is the only person to win twice during that stretch.Neither Parker nor Ogwumike were on the U.S. Olympic team in Rio de Janeiro. The fact that Parker, a two-time Olympian, wasnt selected stirred some controversy. But Ogwumike also was a difficult omission -- explainable only because the Americans are so rich in talent, they can leave home two players whod be the best on any other team -- yet still win gold.Parker being left off the all-WNBA first and second teams reflected a similar logjam of great post players, but also the leagues misguided insistence on trying to have a set number of guards, centers and forwards on the teams -- rather than just the 10 best players, regardless of position.In the end, Parker was the one posing with the WNBA championship trophy and the WNBA Finals MVP award. So its fair to say she stated her case and then some.This season was a big step in Ogwumikes evolution as a superstar on court, but also in terms of her presence in league leadership. Same with her sister, Connecticut Sun forward Chiney Ogwumike, who is now vice president of the executive council.Its always easy to have something to say, but not do anything about it, Nneka said of concerns that players have. I think getting involved is whats necessary. But not just those who are elected. The voices that also matter are ones that arent holding any office.I hope Im good at communicating to people in a way that they can really hear things. And I think the group that we have can reach out to a lot of different people.The new guard follows the old guardThat Ogwumikes high-level involvement in the union comes when both are in their mid-20s is important, because the league saw the departure of players who have been carrying the leadership torch a long time.Indianas Tamika Catchings, who had been president since 2004, and council member Swin Cash of New York were among the big-name players who retired this year. As did Australias Penny Taylor (Phoenix) and Lauren Jackson (Seattle), although the latter had not played in the WNBA since 2012.DeLisha Milton-Jones, who finished her career in 2015 as the all-time leader in WNBA games played (499), hoped to have a chance to compete in 2016. But it didnt happen, so she officially retired, too.There were also key hellos, including to rookie of the year Breanna Stewart of Seattle. She hit the ground running and never stopped, following her four NCAA titles at UConn with an immediate impact on the WNBA.Stewart made it pretty clear theres an MVP award (or more) in her future. Stewart also helped Seattle get back into the postseason after a two-year absence, but the Storms stay was brief. Such is a reality of the new playoff format.Addinng in one-and-doneThe postseason changes seemed to go over well for the most part -- especially the move to do away with conference affiliation and seed the top eight teams by record. Mike Gartner Jersey. Less popular, though, were the single-elimination games in the first two rounds. Some loved the NCAA tournament-like drama of that, but others felt like it was too brief. For instance, on the first night of the postseason, both Stewart and the Storm and Catchings and the Fever were eliminated. The playoffs then lasted another month.I do think the best two teams got into the Finals, which is the goal, Sparks coach Brian Agler said. The one-and-dones are difficult, because in pro sports youre used to playing more games and have a little more room for error. But I think that was done more for TV purposes.If I was going to make one change, it would be Round 2: When the third and fourth seeds play, have it be best-of-three.Agler said it seemed unfortunate that this years No. 3 seed, New York, ended up with single-elimination game against a No. 8 seed like Phoenix. The Mercury were up and down all year. But when they were up, they definitely didnt play like the lowest seed in the field. They knocked off No. 5 Indiana and New York before being swept in the semifinals by Minnesota.The semifinals were changed to a best-of-five series, and the top two seeds automatically advanced to that round. Agler liked that because, he said, allowing the Nos. 1 and 2 teams time to rest and recover was a fair reward for their regular-season success.The down side that some see, though, is that the top teams are out of the spotlight for the first week and a half of the playoffs.It was probably a little too long, but we figured it out, Reeve said of Minnesotas 10 days between games. I do like longer series, so I liked that they expanded the semifinals.Evaluation and a look aheadThe league had some controversy. Many players supported the Black Lives Matter movement and made protests during the national anthem. At one point, several players were fined for not wearing official warm-ups -- opting for all-black shirts instead -- though the fines were later rescinded.Lisa Borders, who took over as WNBA president this season from Laurel Richie, walked a tricky line between supporting the players right to free expression but also trying to establish an authority in regard to things such as uniforms -- which is something, because of sponsorship deals, professional sports teams take seriously.Unlike Richie, who was entirely new not just to the WNBA but womens basketball, Borders had a connection to the league through her support of the Atlanta franchise. Borders communications with the media about the league werent necessarily that different, though, than Richies were.Borders stayed on point with celebrating the leagues 20th anniversary and maintaining an optimistic overall message. She lauded the offensive uptick, in particular, as the league scoring average of 81.9 was the highest ever, as was the average team field goal percentage of 44.1.So fundamentally, the game is stronger than its ever been, Borders said.However, the issue of two officiating mistakes in the WNBA Finals -- a missed backcourt violation in Game 4 and a missed shot-clock violation in Game 5 -- pointed out an issue that tends to be discussed a lot by players, coaches and fans: the consistency and quality of officiating.This isnt occurring in a vacuum: The increased scrutiny on officiating has been across the board in all sports. But especially with late-game miscues in the two biggest contests of the year, the WNBA has to try to address why these things happened and how best to prevent them going forward.Borders also will have a change among her inner circle as Renee Brown, who has been with the WNBA since its inception, is stepping down as chief of basketball operations and player relations. Perhaps her replacement will be quickly tackling the officiating issues.Overall, the 2016 season will most be remembered for how it ended: With a thrilling WNBA Finals in which the leagues top two teams alternated victories. That showed just how competitive a matchup it was.The Lynx had their best regular-season record, 28-6, and were trying to win their fourth championship. That would have tied the now-defunct Houston Comets. Instead, the Sparks got their third, tying them with Minnesota and Phoenix -- which were the two teams most people had picked to win the title before the season started.But it went to the Sparks, who did it the hard way -- winning twice on Minnesotas home court.This league means everything to me, Toler said. And this was an epic Finals, especially [the last game]. I guarantee this will be a game Ill be talking about 20 years from now. I think we all will.

There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Its time to find out how Joe Flacco will respond to taking a hit on his surgically repaired left knee.Flacco will start at quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night against the Detroit Lions, his first game action since tearing his ACL and MCL nine months ago in a game against the St. Louis Rams.The injury ended Flaccos run of 137 straight starts. Following surgery and intensive rehabilitation, he returned to the practice field on the first day of training camp.Wearing a protective brace on his knee and a red jersey that serves as a do-not-touch warning to his teammates, Flacco has fared well this summer.But he hasnt taken a blow to the knee. How he holds up in the pocket against Detroit is far more significant than completion percentage or touchdown throws.I dont need to get hit, no, Flacco said Thursday. But if I do, its not a bad thing either. Hopefully, its the same as its always been.Flacco is the franchise career leader in yards passing (28,3220, touchdown throws (162) and 300-yard games (26). He was also the Super Bowl MVP in 2012.His value to the Ravens is immeasurable. So someone asked coach John Harbaugh if he was confident Flacco could absorb a shot to the knee on Saturday.If I wasnt, he wouldnt be out there, Harbaugh said.But the coach acknowledged, Football is always risky for everybody. Thats just the way it works. You have to weigh the benefits with the risk.That point is, the Ravens dont want to wait until the Sept. 11 regular season opener against Buffalo to get a read on the status of their most important player. Matt Read Jersey. Joes the quarterback. Hes not going to break, Harbaugh said. Hes going to play and were planning on him playing really well, just like he has in practice. But it will be his first game action in a long time. Im sure thats going to be a factor, but Id rather have it in this game than two weeks from now against the Bills.Flacco agreed.I really dont feel like I need to play in (preseason) games to get ready to play Game One, but I want to put myself through that whole process, he said. I just think Ill be better for it. Thats the reason for the whole thing.Flacco said watching the Ravens first two preseason games from the sideline was tough. He probably could have played, but what was the point?None of the starters will participate in the exhibition finale in New Orleans on Sept. 1, so this game will serve as Flaccos only tuneup for his ninth NFL season.Thats really what Im looking forward to, just getting back out there in live action, he said. Being in a real huddle and just seeing everybodys eyes and how excited they are to be out there.Its likely no one in that huddle will be more pumped as the guy calling the plays.Im looking forward to getting out there, Flacco said. Im excited about it. Its been a while obviously. I had to go through a little bit to get here to this point where I can go back out there and play with my guys.---AP NFL website: and China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Wholesale Pistons Jerseys . -- Gary Kubiak bristled at the suggestion he might still be worn down after a week away from football.No, do I look weak? the Denver Broncos coach said.Well, truthfully, his voice was a little bit faint.Thats probably because Ive been hollering a lot this morning, Kubiak said. But, no, I feel good. And I feel really good just getting out here and getting going again.Kubiak, 55, returned to work Monday, a week after his doctor ordered him to take time off after he suffered a complex migraine and was hospitalized overnight following Denvers loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 9.Kubiak certainly had plenty to howl about.During his absence, the Broncos, led by special teams coach Joe DeCamillis, were beaten 21-13 by the San Diego Chargers, who snapped their 10-game losing streak in the AFC West and Denvers NFL record 15-game divisional road winning streak.The loss followed a familiar script: slow start, poor play up front, conservative calls.It was good just being able to have our leader back, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. He kind of lights a fire under everybody, get everybody going, coaches, players, everybody. So, its good to have that accountability back in the room.He just kept it straightforward with us, told us what we needed to do. We need to get it going in the right direction. I mean, thats what you need to hear from your coach, especially after you lost two games like that, Harris said. He just pretty much told us the last two games just pretty much looked the exact same, so we need to change what we do.The Broncos (4-2) host Houston (4-2) on Monday night in Denvers first game against former longtime backup QB Brock Osweiler and Kubiaks first game against his former team.Kubiak was coach of the Texans in 2013 when he had his first health scare, suffering a mini-stroke during halftime of a game against the Colts. He missed 10 days then and returned, to the coaching box at first.Hes expected to be on the sideline Monday night.Kubiak said his doctors in Denver and Houston have compared notes but he doesnt believe the two medical incidents are related. He said his latest health scare was basically a warning sign that he needs to get more sleep.I feel really good, Kubiak said. I got too much rest, unfortunately. I didnt want it. But I got it. I feel very good. ... All my tests came back great. So, its good to be back to work. I really missed a few days there. It was really tough to watch, so Im glad to be back.Kubiak watched the Broncos latest loss with his son, Klein, a Broncos scout, from his home in Denver.Its tough. Weve got to play better, Kubiak said. I told the players today, the last two games for us looked a lot alike, unfortunately.Game notes Kubiak said rookie RB Devontae Booker is getting more adept at blitz pickup and I think he deserves more opportunities to handle the football, especially after gaining 46 yards on five carries against the Chargers. ... The Broncos claimed OL Billy Turner off waivers from the Ravens. To make room, they waived OL Darrion Weems. ...

The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. . Louis Blues absence from top spot in the TSN. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Royals followed up an improbable comeback with an even more unlikely win. Their rally against the White Sox on Sunday began in the fifth inning, when substitute catcher George Kottaras and light-hitting outfielder Jarrod Dyson cracked the first back-to-back homers for the offensively challenged Royals all season. The win happened after the White Sox had pulled back ahead, and included a couple timely hits against their ace reliever and a pair of errors that resulted in a three-run eighth inning. The result was a 7-6 victory that allowed the Royals to avoid a three-game sweep. "It was huge. I mean, we were on a four-game skid," said the Royals David Lough, who scored one of tying run. "For us to pull out that victory later in the game shows our resiliency." The White Sox had pulled ahead on a two-run double by Gordon Beckham in the seventh inning, and then brought in Jesse Crain for the eighth. He hadnt allowed a run in 29 straight innings, but gave up consecutive singles to Mike Moustakas and Lough to start the inning. Crain (2-2) committed the first error when he couldnt field a sacrifice bunt by Elliot Johnson, loading the bases with nobody out. Crain managed to strike out Kottaras and Dyson to breathe easier, but then walked Alex Gordon to get Kansas City within a run. The more costly error came moments later, when Alcides Escobar slapped a grounder toward shortstop that Alexei Ramirez allowed into left field to bring in the go-ahead runs. "We have a habit of coming from behind to win baseball games and today was more of the same," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Any win like that, especially this time of the year, is huge." Luke Hochevar (1-1) struck out two in a scoreless innings of relief for Kansas City, while Greg Holland pitched a perfect ninth for his 16th save in 18 chances. "Its big anytime you get a win and especially coming from behind," Hochever said. "Thats always a big pick-me-up for the club." Adam Dunn homered and drove in four runs to lead the White Sox, who were trying for their first road sweep since last September. "Its a tough way to lose a game," Crain said. "We had a chance to sweep the series, which we needed. We just have to look forward to the next game." Royals starter James Shields and White Sox counterpart Dylan Axelrod both endured rough afternoons, though they surely saw an exciting show once they left the game. Shields threw six straight ballls to start the game and things never got a whole lot better, his leadoff walk to Alejandro De Aza and a single later in the first inning turning into two quick runs when Dunn rapped a single off the glove of Eric Hosmer at first base. Khyri Thomas Jersey. . The Royals ace then plunked Alex Rios in the back in the third inning, and Dunn made Shields pay again for his erratic ways with his no-doubt, two-run shot to centre field. It was the 20th homer for the hot-hitting Dunn, who trails only the Orioles Chris Davis and Blue Jays Edwin Encarnacion for the most in the American League. Shields wound up putting the leadoff batter on base in four of his five innings, and needed 97 pitches just to last that long. He departed without finishing six innings for the first time since last July 15 against Boston, a span of 30 consecutive starts. The former All-Star hasnt won in his last 10 outings. "I guess I have to start another 29-game streak now," he said. "Ive been pitching my butt off all season. I dont really care (about wins) as long as we win the game." The Royals started moving in that direction in the bottom of the third inning on Gordons RBI single, and then pulled even against Axelrod during a three-run fifth inning. The first two came on their back-to-back home runs -- the 26th career homer for Kottaras, who was giving Salvador Perez the day off behind the plate, and just the third career shot for Dyson, who was making his first start since returning from the disabled list on Saturday. "I put the barrel on the ball and it took off," Dyson said. Escobar kept the rally alive with a double, and Billy Butlers two-out single through the left side of the infield tied the game 4-all and knocked Axelrod from the game. Beckhams double off Kelvin Herrera in the seventh inning pushed the White Sox back in front, but a bullpen -- and a reliever -- that has been stingy all month finally let them down. "Hes semi-human," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "You know eventually theres going to be a time or two when hes going to give up a run or two. Its just tough that its today." NOTES: Kottaras threw out two runners on pitch outs. ... The Royals claimed RHP Maikel Cleto off waivers from St. Louis and assigned him to Triple-A Omaha. They designated OF Quintin Berry for assignment. ... The Royals are off before hosting the Braves for the first time in interleague play on Tuesday. The White Sox also are off before starting a series against the Mets.

(STATS) -- With the three top-scoring teams in the subdivision still alive, there figures to be plenty of points in the FCS playoffs this weekend. Glenn Anderson Jersey .At Stambaugh Stadium, there should be plenty of punts.Two of the nations best defenses will have a lot to say about which of the subdivisions unseeded Cinderellas books a spot in the semifinals as Wofford visits Youngstown State on Saturday.Sam Houston State, James Madison and Eastern Washington should keep scoreboards busy in the FCS quarterfinals, with the over/under for Friday nights Bearkats-Dukes showdown set at 84 1/2 in a matchup between the nations two highest-scoring teams.Thats a cool 51 points more than Vegas expects in Youngstown, where two teams that werent supposed to get this far will try to become the FCS final fours unlikeliest party crasher. Nineteenth-ranked Wofford (10-3) is third in the subdivision in scoring defense at 16.1 points per game, while the No. 13 Penguins (10-3) are just a tick behind at 17.7.The Terriers have allowed a total of 17 in their last three games -- none in the final 52 minutes of their 17-3 round of 16 win at The Citadel and none in their past five fourth quarters.I dont care if its 3-0 or 40-39, Youngstown State coach Bo Pelini said. A wins a win. Theyre hard to come by.They didnt used to be in Youngstown, where the Penguins were the subdivisions most dominant program in the 1990s, but this playoff trip is the programs first since 2006. YSU made it to the semifinals that season and is on the cusp of getting back there after shocking third-seeded Jacksonville State 40-24 last weekend.For as good as theyve been defensively, the Penguins offense has woken up in recent weeks. They threw for a season-high 315 yards against the Gamecocks but still managed to run it in three times, giving Youngstown State a remarkable 15 rushing touchdowns -- along with 47.6 points and 566 yards per game -- over the past three weeks. Quarterback Hunter Wells has come alive after taking over at midseason, averaging 12.87 yards per attempt on 45 throws during this outburst.So whos to say a visit from Wofford will ultimately turn into a grinder in the trenches?I always tell our guys, you dont have a crystal ball, Pelini said. You dont know what its gonna take week to week or how its gonna go.Its still probably safe to say Wofford would prefer a low-possession contest that hinges on getting some defensive stops late. In the last four of their six straight wins, the Terriers have allowed just 5.44 yards per pass attempt with eight interceptions, yielded one touchdown on the ground and stopped 68 percent of their opponents third-down attempts.Wofford was sixth in the FCS with 2.9 yards per carry allowed on the ground. Take away Ole Miss and the three games against fellow triple-option offenses, and the Terriers surrender 1.7 yards per tote.Everybody plays for one another, defensive lineman Tyler Vaughn said. Its 11 hats to the ball every time, and we ride together. Thats been our mentality all season.Even in the summer, everybody knew what the situation was. We wanted to be a great defense and we wanted to dictate games and make it known that we were trying to be the best defense in the country.Coach Mike Ayers team may need its defense to be great again, particularly with the uncertainty under center reaching a critical level. Junior quarterback Brandon Goodson, who began the season third on the depth chart, left against The Citadel with an ankle injury, leaving fifth-string true freshman Joseph Newman to take his place.Newman ran 36 yards for the tiebreaking touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Goodson is considered questionable, and if he cant go and Newman gets hurt, running back Nick Colvin is the next signal caller up.Were used to different quarterbacks coming in, offensive lineman Dequan Miller said. Last year, we rotated three guys and then this year we had two guys go down. It was just the next man up. When you come into the game, you play ball.Pelini seems as unfazed with who to expect to be taking snaps as his opponent is.Theyre gonna run their offense, and were preparing for their offense, he said. Whoevers under center is under center.Both Youngstown State and Wofford are unsurprisingly among the FCS leaders in time of possession, and YSUs third-down percentage (46.9) is 12th in the subdivision. Without facing much in the way of the triple option during the regular season, Pelini has had to instill one mantra into his players this week: discipline.For star defensive linemen Avery Moss and Derek Rivers along with the rest of a Penguins defense thats used to getting after the quarterback -- their 44 sacks lead the FBS -- that aggressive mentality will take a back seat for at least this week.Everybodys gotta handle their responsibilities and have their eyes in the right places, Pelini said. You need 11 guys to fit it right and to do their part. ... And youve gotta be physical, because theyre a physical team.The winner faces either Richmond or No. 2 seed Eastern Washington in next weeks semifinals.

ATLANTA -- Coach Mark Fox is counting on a win that looked ugly on the court to eventually sparkle on Georgias resume.Yante Maten overcame a slow start to score 16 points and Georgia rolled to a 60-43 win over Georgia Tech on Tuesday night.Georgia Tech is rebuilding under first-year coach Josh Pastner and is expected to finish close to the bottom of the Atlantic Coast Conference standings. Even so, Fox insisted it was an important game for his Bulldogs, and not just because of the state rivalry.For us, an ACC game on the road will look good on our resume, Fox said. It was a big game for us.It was the Bulldogs first win at Georgia Tech since 2010 and their second straight win in the rivalry following four straight for Georgia Tech.J.J. Frazier scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half of what he said was a great team win for the Bulldogs.For me, its just a special moment, Frazier said. To get our first road win at Tech sure feels good.Georgia (8-3) kept its lead in double figures most of the second half. With less than 3 minutes remaining, Georgia fans in the sellout crowd began barking and chanting UGA!Maten had 11 second-half points, giving him 26 consecutive games in double figures.Georgia Tech (6-4) took its only lead at 8-7.Fraziers floater started a 9-0 Georgia run and he sank a 3-pointer to open the second half.Pastner said the Yellow Jackets couldnt overcome the cold shooting of Quinton Stephens, who was scoreless while missing each of his nine shots from the field, and Tadric Jackson, who was held to five points, about seven below his average.Its hard for us when Tadric and Quentin are a combined 2 for 14, Pastner said.Ben Lammers led the Yellow Jackets with 10 points, well below his average of 15.3. Josh Okogie had eight points and eight rebounds.BIG PICTUREGeorgia: The Bullldogs led 27-18 at halftime despite having only a combined nine points from Maten and Frazier. Martin St. Louis Jersey. . The first-half struggles revealed the need for the Bulldogs to develop complementary scoring. Derek Ogbeide had 11 points, including 10 in the first half, but he had little scoring help in the opening 20 minutes.Georgia Tech: The Yellow Jackets made only 1 of 10 3-pointers and shot only 34.6 percent (18 of 52) overall. It was Georgia Techs second loss to a Southeastern Conference team, following an 81-58 loss at Tennessee on Dec. 3.SECOND-CHANCE POINTS ARE KEYGeorgia outscored Georgia Tech 19-2 on second-chance points while holding a 13-5 advantage on offensive rebounds.They kicked our butt on the offensive glass, no question about that, Pastner said.FOOTBALL REWINDOne of the biggest cheers from the home fans came during a second-half break when highlights of Georgia Techs 28-27 football win on Nov. 26 were shown on the video board.SELLOUTThe attendance was 8,600 for Georgia Techs first home sellout of the season -- possibly contributing to the Yellow Jackets poor start.I think anytime theres a sellout crowd for a game like this, youre going to have a little bit of jitters, Lammers said. We just need to settle down quicker.Pastner said the atmosphere is what he hopes will become more common for home games -- minus the Georgia fans.UP NEXTAfter making a 90-minute drive to Atlanta, Georgia will make an unusual trip to southeast Michigan to play Oakland University on Friday.Georgia Tech will play its third straight home game when it plays Wofford on Thursday night.---More AP college basketball: and China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
