INDIANAPOLIS -- Miamis fearsome threesome has suddenly become a one-man show. Dwyane Wade Jersey . Its already cost the Heat one chance to reach the NBA Finals, and if they dont get things fixed by Monday, the vanishing act could leave the defending champs home sooner than anyone anticipated. Four-time MVP LeBron James scored 29 points, had seven rebounds and six assists, but Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade couldnt even match those numbers together Saturday night in Miamis 91-77 loss that left the Eastern Conference finals tied at 3-3. Wade finished with 10 points, two rebounds and one assist, while Bosh added five points, four rebounds and no assists for the Heat, who will host Game 7 on Monday. "My rhythm seems off, its been like that the whole series," Bosh said. "Now I have to go and find it. Ive got 48 hours to do that." Perhaps Boshs poor showing in this series is Miamis decision to leave Bosh on the perimeter to try and draw Roy Hibbert and David West out of the paint. For the most part, it hasnt worked. Hibbert had another double-double with 24 points and 11 rebounds, while David West added 11 points and 14 rebounds despite playing through an upper respiratory infection. Wades late-season fade has been considered a result of his injured right knee. The perennial All-Star and two-time NBA champ wouldnt bite on it. "I dont want to talk about the knee," he said. "I havent talked about it for the last two months and Im not about to start now." Instead, the leagues most dominant team will spend the next two days preparing for what most people believed inconceivable when this series began -- a one-game shot to save the season. Hibbert did everything but pull out the boxing gloves in Game 6, continually contesting Miamis shots to help Indiana stave off elimination. Paul George scored 28 points, had eight rebounds and five assists, and the Pacers held Miami to 36.1 per cent shooting as they booked a trip back to Miami for Game 7 on Monday night. "Myself and David, we throw ourselves in the fray, in the paint. We like to muck it up," Hibbert said. "Paul and myself, we wanted to make sure we got this for him as well. We didnt want this to be our last game." It wasnt. The Pacers have pushed James and his high-scoring, high-profile teammates to the brink of elimination by punching back, and Game 6 followed a familiar story line. The Pacers had a 53-33 rebounding advantage, outscored Miami 44-22 in the paint and limited Miamis shooters to 16 of 54, 29.6 per cent, from inside the arc. How have the Pacers done it? With Hibbert controlling the inside after adding MMA training to his off-season regiment. "Roy Hibbert is making extraordinary plays in the pocket, poise in the pocket we call it," coach Frank Vogel said. "Hes getting paint catches and just having great poise, great reads. Hes not plowing over guys. He had a charge in Game 5, but has been under control." It was everything an elimination game should be. The teams traded baskets and jabs, sometimes literally, and players ignored the bumps and bruises of yet another wrestling match that has made this tough-guy series compelling. Both teams attacked the basket, sometimes with problematic results. Indiana missed about five dunk attempts in the first half and a series of short jumpers, too, costing them precious points. The Heat struggled, meanwhile, starting the game just 3 of 22 from inside the 3-point line. Miamis Big Three -- James, Wade and Bosh -- went just 14 of 40. Excluding James, Miami managed only 16 baskets -- eight 3s and eight 2s. With Chris "Birdman" Andersen suspended for the game because of a shoving incident with Indiana forward Tyler Hansbrough on Thursday, the Heat couldnt keep up with Indianas big rebounders inside. Even Lance Stephenson, who was ineffective at Miami, finished with four points, 12 rebounds and four assists. Indianas loud crowd created a hostile atmosphere, too. Fans chanted "Heat Are Floppers!" sporadically throughout the second half, urging the Pacers to play harder, to defend better and to make another trip home. The only way to do that is to win Game 7 and avoid a second straight playoff elimination at the hands of the Heat. For Miami, the stakes were so high that when James was called for an offensive foul midway through the fourth quarter, he lost his cool. James protested by running from one end of the court to the other, drawing a technical foul, and when Miami assistant coach David Fizdale showed his support for the leagues four-time MVP, it drew another technical. George Hill answered by making free throws and Hibbert followed that with a layup, ending any chance of Miami making a late comeback. James said he was trying to avoid an ejection and would up spending the last 66 seconds sitting a few seats down from the Heat bench cheering on his teammates. "Explain it? You seen it. It was total domination by the Pacers in the third," James said when asked what happened to the leagues most dominant team on Saturday. "They made a lot of shots, we didnt get too many stops and we missed some very, very easy shots." It was a complete reversal from Game 5, when Miami took control by outscoring the Pacers 30-13 in the third. This time, against one of the leagues top offensive teams, the Pacers gave up only six points in the first eight minutes of the quarter, using a 14-2 run to turn a 40-39 halftime deficit into a 66-49 lead with 1:15 left in the quarter. Hibbert scored nine in the quarter. Miami did close to within 68-55 after three, but it was too big a deficit to overcome -- even with James running the show. The Heat rallied early in the fourth, taking advantage of Indianas 1 for 6 start from the field. When Mike Miller hit back-to-back 3s, the Pacers lead was down to 70-64 and when James scored on a layup with 5:54 to play, the Heat were within 72-68. But the run ended abruptly when George hit a 3, Miamis Joel Anthony was called for a loose ball foul on the offensive end and David West grabbed an offensive rebound and scored on a dunk to extend the lead to 77-68. Then came the technical flurry that finished it off. Notes: Miami matched its season-low point total (77), which also occurred against the Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Jan. 8. ... Miami finished the season 1-4 at Indiana, losing twice in the regular season and twice in the playoffs. ... After the game, Hibbert criticized the media for not recognizing the Pacers as a good team -- using a foul two-word expletive that will almost certainly draw a fine from the league. ...

"It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. LINCOLN, Neb. -- Tommy Armstrong Jr.s legs were so cramped up that when Nebraskas defense was on the field he would drink pickle juice, Gatorade, water and anything else he could find on the sideline. He even was given fluids intravenously early in the fourth quarter.It turned out he had one more run left in him.With legs that he said felt like Jello, Armstrong took off on a quarterback draw, made two tacklers miss and scored a 34-yard touchdown with 2:29 left Saturday, lifting Nebraska to a 35-32 victory over No. 22 Oregon.My legs hurt, he said, but they feel better when youre in the end zone.Armstrong wouldnt have been in position to score if he hadnt converted a fourth-and-9 with a pass to roommate Jordan Westerkamp two plays earlier.Nebraska (3-0) came back from a 20-7 deficit late in the second quarter to give second-year coach Mike Riley a long-awaited win over Oregon (2-1).

They rushed for 336 yards, with Kani Benoit leading them with 100 and Dakota Prukop with 97, but the offense suffers without Freeman and is further hurt by penalties. First-year defensive coordinator Brady Hoke also needs to come up with a way for his unit to stop the run.NEBRASKA: This was a feel-good win for Rileys program and the 350th consecutive sellout crowd at Memorial Stadium.

SAN DIEGO -- In their first game since clinching the NL West title, the Los Angeles Dodgers were no match for Padres rookie Hunter Renfroe. C.J. McCollum Jersey .The newcomer hit his first career grand slam and also had a three-run shot to drive in all of San Diegos runs Tuesday night in a 7-1 victory against the Dodgers.Los Angeles fell two games behind the NL East champion Washington Nationals for home-field advantage in their Division Series matchup.Renfroe, the MVP of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League, was called up last Wednesday. He hit a high, arcing, three-run homer to left field off Kenta Maeda with two outs in the first inning. Renfroes grand slam to straightaway center came on a full-count pitch from Louis Coleman with two outs in the eighth. The young outfielder has three homers in six games.Dodgers rookie manager Dave Roberts was on the Padres staff the last several years, so he knows about RenfroeHes got big power, Roberts said. We left some balls out over the plate and elevated to him, and do that with a power hitter and that can happen. He had a big day.Roberts didnt think there was any hangover from the Dodgers clinching the division crown at home on Sunday.I thought we were ready to go. We got behind the 8-ball with that three-run first inning, he said.After the first inning, Kenta was good. He was missing with his breaking ball and fastball a little and he left a breaking ball up to Renfroe. Outside of that, he got his strikeouts and soft contact. I told him I thought it was a positive outing.Maeda had faced the Padres three times earlier this year, but they have a lot of new players since his last start against San Diego on July 10.It wasnt miscommunication as much as it was facing these new hitters and I wasnt familiar with them, he said through a translator.Maeda (16-10), who beat the Padres 7-0 at Petco Park in his big league debut on April 6, had his start moved up one day so hell get another one before the playoffs begin.Paul Clemens (4-5) held the Dodgers to one run and three hits in five innings. He struck out two and walked one.Chase Utley homered for the Dodgers in the third, his 13th.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: 1B Adrian Gonzalez left the game with a sinus infection.

The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. BRADENTON, Fla. -- His life in golf has seen him hailed as a hero in Great Britain for winning two major championships, a grieving widower in the midst of a game-changing run as Ryder Cup captain, the subject of tabloid fodder, a competitor again as a senior golfer and now an elder statesman who has settled into a quiet community on the west coast of Florida.Tony Jacklin, 72, lives off the 14th fairway at Bradenton Golf Club, where his golf is sporadic these days although the charging electric golf cart in his garage says hes never too far away from the game that made him famous.Near the golf clubs is a makeshift studio where Jacklin has taken to a hobby he very much enjoys, one that sees him painstakingly trace images of subjects he draws, most from the world of golf. Included in his collection, for example, is a picture of Davis Love III and Darren Clarke, the captains of the respective Ryder Cup teams this week at Hazeltine National in Minnesota -- where, incidentally, Jacklin won the 1970 U.S. Open.Such artwork takes planning and precision, not to mention tinkering and time. Not that such qualities suddenly came to Jacklin later in life. They served him well all those years ago when he helped change the Ryder Cup from a sleepy affair dominated by the United States, barely a blip on golfs radar, to one of the biggest events in sports.Since Jacklins first captaincy in 1983, Europe has gone 10-5-1, turning what had been an annual American romp into a fierce competition that often comes down to the final day, the final match, the final hole. Jacklin led Europe on four occasions, going 2-1-1, winning for the first time in 28 years, winning for the first time on American soil, and forging a tie in his last attempt -- which meant Europe kept the Cup and Jacklin again walked away triumphant.It has been an amazing run that continues now as Europe seeks a fourth straight victory in the competition, something that would not have been fathomable in Jacklins time as a player.Theres a coming together when it comes to the Ryder Cup, Jacklin said recently at his Florida home. Its extraordinary the team unity that gets created. I suppose the irony is they all strive to play in America and get on the American (PGA) Tour where everything is so great, where you have this standard of excellence across the board.Its everyones target to play where the best are, and America it is. Its that excellence in some ways that spurred me and someone like Seve [Ballesteros]. We had been poor, and the singular thing that runs through you is just because theyve got everything, it doesnt mean to say they are the best.Given the proper and level playing field, it doesnt matter where youre from. America doesnt have a stranglehold on ambition.With all that in mind, it is not a stretch to say that Tony Jacklin saved the Ryder Cup.Great Britains golf heroJacklin was born in the English town of Scunthorpe and one of the lasting memories of his youth was attending the 1957 Ryder Cup at Lindrick Golf Club, where the Great Britain & Ireland team defeated the United States, 7? to 4?, the first U.S. defeat since 1933.Getting to see the great golfers of the day in an era of no televised golf was a big deal to Jacklin, who five years later at age 18 turned professional and set about his own golf journey.For a time, that meant working in the pro shop, and one of Jacklins first jobs was at Potters Bar Golf Club near London. It is where he met a man named Marshall Bellow who would become a lifetime friend and happened to be Jacklins host when he was first offered the Ryder Cup captaincy nearly two decades later.I went into the pro shop when I first became a member and I had a conversation with this lad, Bellow, now 81, recalled. It was Tony Jacklin; that is how I first met him. He was a kid in the shop, a lot of personality, full of himself. There was something special about him. You couldnt help but like him. No one ever taught him how to make a speech or to be a leader. He just had it in him. He did it all by himself.Jacklin would become the rare foreign golfer to play events on what is now known as the PGA Tour. Not since the 1940s had British golfers come to America with the purpose of making it here, but Jacklin wanted to play against the best. It is how he became friendly with the likes of Jack Nicklaus and other American stars. He felt welcomed by them.Playing full time in America, Jacklin won twice at PGA Tour stops in Jacksonville, Florida, and the 1970 U.S. Open at Hazeltine National -- the only victory by a European player at the tournament between 1929 and 2009. He also won the 1969 Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes -- where he became the first British player to win the tournament in 18 years. He was awarded the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E) by Queen Elizabeth II in 1970. (And the C.B.E., Commander of the British Empire, in 1990.)Jacklin won 27 times as a professional, including eight times on the European Tour, which wasnt formed until 1972. Along the way, he played in 48 major championships, posting 17 top-25 finishes. And he played the Ryder Cup seven times, never on a winning team but still posting a very respectable individual record of 13-14-8 from 1967 through 1979.His major titles made him a revered figure at home and he enjoyed the spoils of success, building a mansion in the Cotswolds and driving a Rolls-Royce. Super agent Mark McCormack of International Management Group provided plenty of opportunities off the course, and Great Britain latched onto its latest sports icon.He was a hero in those days, Bellow said. He was a very fine young man, just special. There was just something about him. He was a celebrity who went from being ordinary to being The Open champion in a country craving and desperate for an Open champion. All of a sudden his life changed and at times it was hard to cope with.He was an enthusiastic golfer who had a great week and now his face is all over the world. Hes playing in America. Hes buying houses. Its a classic story of a local bloke who comes from nowhere.At his second Ryder Cup as a player, Jacklin went 4-0-2 in 1969, when the match ended in a 16-16 tie. Two of those four victories were against Nicklaus, including the first Sunday singles encounter that preceded the famous Concession. It was the first time Jacklins side had not lost since 1957.Facing a 2-footer for par on the 18th green -- after Nicklaus had made a par putt from 4? feet -- to tie both their match and the Ryder Cup, Jacklin saw Nicklaus reach over, pick up the coin that was marking the British golfers ball, and concede the putt. The gesture meant the Nicklaus-Jacklin match was tied, as was the overall Ryder Cup match, meaning the United States retained the Cup.God only knows what he must have been thinking, Jacklin said. All of a sudden, hes got a 4?-footer to make (after running a birdie putt past the hole), and if he misses, his team loses the match. And then, in a split second he holes the putt and hes picking his ball out of the hole, and he picks my marker up at the same time. So hes run it all through his mind. He must have. But it was a spontaneous gesture.Nicklaus knew what a revered figure Jacklin was in his homeland (the event was played at Royal Birkdale in England) and said he expected Jacklin would make the putt -- but didnt want to take the chance that he might miss it.I didnt think it was in the spirit of the game to make him have a chance to miss a 2-footer to lose the matches in front of his fans, Nicklaus said.The act of sportsmanship is still cited as one of the games great moments -- not that everyone agreed with it. U.S. captain Sam Snead was said to be furious, and other members of the U.S. team grumbled that they were there to win and not be good sports.But it would be the only time in most of those U.S. players careers where the U.S. Ryder Cup effort was ever remotely in doubt. Jacklin would play in the Ryder Cup five more times, never sniffing a team victory.For a successful competitor such as Jacklin, it was frustrating. And he continued to get the sense that there was no plan, no will to try and change the outcome. And when he was left off the team in 1981 by captain John Jacobs, Jacklin vowed to put the Ryder Cup out of his memory. He was so angry, he wanted no part of the Ryder Cup or the people running it.They just must have thought all they had to do was keep turning up, Jacklin said. Thats the most important thing, Lets turn up. I had been on the receiving end of a few thrashings. Theres no pride for me in just turning up. At that point, I was pretty much done with the Ryder Cup. I was upset with the way I had been treated.The Concorde and cashmereIn May 1983, Jacklin, who was about to turn 38, saw his career winding down. He had putting problems, and he wasnt performing up to his standards. He has often said he never quite got over Lee Trevino chipping in on the 71st hole at Muirfield in 1972, where Jacklin felt he had an excellent chance at a second Claret Jug and a third major title in four years.Tied on the par-5 17th, Trevino appeared on his way to a bogey or worse, having hit his fourth shot over the green. Trevino seemed to have given up, taking little time to assess his fifth shot, all but slapping at the ball -- and it somehow went in for a par. Stunned, Jacklin 3-putted for bogey and never seriously contended in a major again.A year later, he retreated from America, the rigors of travel taking their toll. He and his first wife, Vivien, had three kids, and traveling back and forth became disillusioning.It was while preparing for a European Tour event in the spring of 1983 at Sand Moor Golf Club near Leeds that he was approached on the driving range by Colin Snape, the secretary of the British PGA, and Ken Schofield, the executive director of the European Tour.Knowing full well where Jacklin stood on the matter of the Ryder Cup, they nonetheless after considerable debate asked him to be the captain later that year against the United States in, of all places, Nicklaus backyard; the Golden Bear would captain the U.S. team for the first time in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida -- just a few miles from his home.You could have knocked me down with a feather, Jacklin said.He was still seething about the way he was treated in 1981. Jacklin had been 13th in the European Tours Order of Merit and in need of a pick for the 12-man team. Jacobs instead selected Englishman Mark James (who would captain the 1999 European squad at Brookline) over Jacklin.Jacklin thought it outrageous that James be included over him; James and teammate Ken Brown had acted so poorly during the 1979 Ryder Cup that both were later fined, with Brown suspended a year from the tour.James behaved abominably at the 79 matches, which was the first European match, Jacklin said. He was disruptive. He let the whole side down. Even the Americans knew something was going down and it was a major factor. Doing childish things, being bloody-minded about the whole thing. It tore down any team spirit.Having had my experiences in America and having won my major championships, I realized we werent approaching it in a very professional manner. I knew the American way by then ... the professionalism that America brought to the table when it came to the matches. All that said, the James-Brown thing, the unprofessional way we were approaching it, there was no way we were ever going to win it.Not only was Jacklin left off the team, but so, too, was Spains Seve Ballesteros, Europes emerging star who had won The Open in 1979 and the Masters in 1980. In his first Ryder Cup in 1979, Ballesteros won only one match, but it was clear his talents would be necessary to have any chance going forward.The European Tour and British PGA had banned Ballesteros from the Ryder Cup because of his demands for appearance fees at various tournaments. (The irony is the European Tour has for years looked the other way at a practice that continues today.)I was also angry at the way Seve had been treated because he was a very proud guy, Jacklin said. Arguably the best player in the world. And they banned him from playing because his manager was asking for appearance fees. ... But they never sat Seve down and said, How can we accommodate each other? What can we do? That never happened. They just sat there and were dictating.Also notable was the late date. Ryder Cup captains today are typically named at least 18 months in advance, sometimes longer. It was nearly June and the Ryder Cup was only four months away. Europe didnt have a captain and didnt have its best player.There had been delays in coming to a decision following the heavy defeat at Walton Heath in 1981, Schofield said. Some of the committee had wanted to stick with the practice of a ceremonial type captain as a form of thank you for past service. Whereas the young committee members -- led by Bernhard Langer -- wanted the best possible captain who would still be in touch with the players.So after a number of adjourned meetings, the younger guys won the day, and Tony was the nomination. I approached him knowing he may have to be won over.That is a nice way of saying it. Jacklin was so shocked he couldnt give an answer. He retreated to Bellows home to ponder a decision he never dreamed he would face.It was the furthest thing that I ever should be approached about it, he said. I had fallen out with them. And I decided to go on my own way. Having done that and had a few hours, I thought it might be an opportunity to put things the way I think they ought to be. When it came to the meeting, I basically didnt care whether I did it or not. And if they had said no to any of it, I would have walked. I would have turned around and left.Jacklin demanded three captains picks (he would eventually get this, but due to the late time of his choosing in 1983, the European Tour took 12 players straight off the money list.) He wanted a team room, something never before used at a Ryder Cup. He was adamant that the team have first-class travel to America via the Concorde and top-notch accommodations. And he insisted on the finest clothing -- shoes, golf bags, pants, shirts, rain suits, everything.It had particularly galled Jacklin that in Ryder Cups in which hed played, the team never had proper footwear. I remember him distinctly talking about plastic shoes, his friend Bellow said.I said I want carte blanche to address these things, Jacklin said of the meeting he had with Schofield, Snape and others on a committee charged with pursuing a captain. They kept saying OK. Went through the list. Whatever you want. And I said on that basis, Ill do it.Waiting outside the room to hear the outcome was Lord Derby, a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and also the president of the British PGA. He was relieved Jacklin had agreed to take the job.I went to him and said, What about Seve? Jacklin said.Now that youve accepted the captaincy, Derby said, Hes your problem.Getting Ballesteros on boardIn 1983, the Ryder Cup was nowhere near the spectacle it has become today. It had little impact beyond the players, especially in the United States. The Americans considered it an honor to make the team, and expected a routine victory. In 1977 for example, despite being eligible, Tom Weiskopf skipped the Ryder Cup to go on an Alaskan bear hunting trip.Even after continental Europe teamed up with Great Britain & Ireland in 1979 -- an idea hatched by Nicklaus to make the Ryder Cup more competitive -- the results didnt change. And over the years, the event struggled to survive financially, typically scrambling to find sponsorship money.Television rights fees, just one of many huge revenue streams today, were virtually nonexistent, with limited exposure in Britain. For the first time in 1983, the Ryder Cup was televised in the U.S. -- for two hours on tape delay by ABC on Sunday. The Ryder Cup was still far from solid financial footing.It was against that backdrop that Jacklin asked for and received the best of everything. I had no bloody idea how they were going to pay for it, he said.Scotlands Bernard Gallacher was among those on the committee who helped push for Jacklin. He played on Jacklins first team in 1983 and then served as a vice captain for three Ryder Cups before succeeding Jacklin for his own run as captain.We needed a special person to go up against the mighty Jack Nicklaus, especially in America, Gallacher said. Because of his exceptional playing record, past Open and U.S. Open champion, Tony was the most respected figure in UK sport, far less golf.The decisive factor was persuading Seve to get behind Tonys strategy, behind the project. Tony developed a close, personal relationship with Seve that endured to the end.Convincing Ballesteros had not been an easy task. For all his greatness, Ballesteros was stubborn. His pride often overshadowed good sense. Not only had he feuded with the European Tour, but then-PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman as well. Ballesteros felt he should be able to pick and choose his tournaments; Beman stuck to tour regulations, which required him to play a minimum number of events.But the fact he had been kept off the Ryder Cup team wounded Ballesteros. Like Jacklin, he had built up a good bit of distaste for the entire event, and had all but written it off in the future. And that was Jacklins challenge. He immediately sought a meeting, and Jacklin said it occurred the following week at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Southport, England -- in the town where The Open would be played that summer at Royal Birkdale and where the 69 Ryder Cup had been played.He spent the first half hour venting, Jacklin said. Saying this that and the other. I said, Youre preaching to the converted. He was a very proud guy and he was angry. Felt he had been slighted. I said, Were not going to be in the back of the bus anymore. Theyve promised me the best of everything.I told him I cant do it without you. Youre the best player in the world as far as Im concerned. Youre passionate about what you do. Im passionate about the fact that I think we can beat the Americans. I cant possibly do it without you.. Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys. . We can make a concerted effort to meet up on equal terms with the Americans.Once we finished the whole thing, Seve said, OK, I help you. That was the start.Indeed, it was the beginning of a run that few saw coming. In the four Ryder Cups that Jacklin captained for Europe, Ballesteros never lost more than one match in any of them. He played all five matches each time and went 12-4-4.In 1987, Jacklin paired Ballesteros with a 21-year-old rookie from Spain, Jose Maria Olazabal, a partnership that proved to be the best in Ryder Cup history. They went 11-2-2 together, playing every team match through 1991 and three more in 1993.Ballesteros would go 20-12-5 in his eight Ryder Cup appearances, with two victories and a tie under Jacklin and another win in 1995, his last Ryder Cup. Ballesteros, who died in 2011 after a long battle with cancer, also captained the European side to victory in 1997.Changes in attitudeThe Concorde was a British-French supersonic jet that traveled at twice the speed of sound with seating for more than 100 people. It was luxury in the sky, and the fact that a plane could go from London to New York in approximately three hours made it the journey of envy. (The plane and service was discontinued in 2003.)The U.S. Ryder Cup team had used the Concorde in 1981 while their European counterparts had typically come across the Atlantic on British Airways, in the back of bus, as Jacklin said. His concerns about paying for it were alleviated when the European Tour and British PGA sold seats on the plane at a premium to supporters who wanted to travel to America and watch the matches.The new captain had gone to Florida shortly after securing Ballesteros participation to find a suitable hotel as well as meeting space at PGA National that is now commonly referred to as the team room.Wed never had one, Jacklin said. Wed huddle in the locker room or have these cramped meetings and then everyone would disperse that night. I wanted that to be where the players could come all the time. They could eat and drink and relax. They could talk. We could talk strategy. That would be our place to jell.A clothing company was secured to provide appropriate uniforms, including pants, shirts, sweaters, rain gear -- and shoes. And nice golf bags were part of the package, too.Back then it was the good old British PGA who were in control of it, and Tony said, This has got to change. Youve got to treat the guys the same, said Nick Faldo, who would succeed Jacklin as Britains best golfer, going on to win six major championships; Faldo played in his first Ryder Cup in 1977. If we go there with plastic golf bags, which we did moons ago, and part of our wardrobe was a raincoat, I mean ... goodness me. We didnt feel like golfers.And we got walloped all the time. And finally after 1983 when we showed how close we could get ... youve got to stand up on the first tee and not afford feeling a couple down to your opponents. He upped the standards.Said Langer: Tony was a very good leader. He had some great ideas. He was a player himself and played under different captains. He saw what they did and didnt do. He started paving a road that wasnt paved before.Faldo was joined on that 83 team by Ballesteros, Langer, Ian Woosnam and Sandy Lyle, players that would all go on to win major championships. Another member of that team was rookie Paul Way, who was only 20 years old at the time.Way epitomized what Jacklin was able to do as a captain, meshing his youth with the savvy and skill of Ballesteros. They played all four team matches together, going 2-1-1. Way then beat Curtis Strange in singles.Tony gave us belief, really, said Way, now 53, living in England and playing occasionally on the European Senior Tour. And Seve was fantastic. It was incredible to be paired with him for four matches. He was like a second captain. Tony talked him into coming back after being left out and obviously was an integral part of the success of it, really. He loved it. He loved beating the Americans. Obviously winning at The Belfry in 85 was fantastic, but this set the ball rolling.For the first time in years, the Ryder Cup was tense. It was 8-8 after two days in 1983, with singles left to decide it. Ballesteros hit a miraculous shot from a fairway bunker on the 18th hole -- with a 5-wood -- to earn a tie with Fuzzy Zoeller. Faldo, Langer and Way won their matches, and only when American Lanny Wadkins knocked his wedge shot to within inches on the 18th hole to earn a tie with Jose Maria Canizares did the Americans secure the victory.The 14? to 13? win was the closest Ryder Cup outcome since the celebrated tie in 1969.We had lost by a single point and were devastated, Jacklin said. But Seve recognized we shouldnt be so sad. He said, This is a victory for us. It was the best wed ever done in America by miles. Of course it still hurt. But he was right. We took a giant step that year. Instead of the bravado Id experienced in the 60s and 70s, this manifested itself in confidence. Thats a hell of a lot different than bravado. It was a huge disappointment, but at least it was a match.In hindsight, going over the list of things wed done to change, I didnt see anything wrong with the way wed done it. Wed just gotten beat, plain and simple. Everything was great about the week.Victory, finallyDespite the euphoria surrounding the close call in 1983, the fact remained that the European/GB&I team had not won since 1957, which Jacklin attended.It was such an inspiring thing for me, seeing these great players, he said.And it wasnt lost on Jacklin that after 28 years he could be the one to deliver that elusive victory at The Belfry, a resort just outside of Birmingham, England that had three courses and would become the model for future Ryder Cup venues -- a place that was willing to pay dearly for the right to host the event and thereby gain exposure.When we arrived at The Belfry in 85, the nucleus of the team was more or less the same, Jacklin said. And there was a sense of expectation in front of a home crowd because of what wed achieved in 83 despite being beat in the end. That confidence as opposed to bravado was there. That was the thing that would change the outcome.The U.S. was still a prohibitive favorite, captained by Trevino -- Jacklins nemesis at the 72 Open. A year prior, Trevino had won the PGA Championship for his sixth major title. As a player, he had competed in six Ryder Cups, never playing on a losing team, the only close call coming during that 1969 tie.Like many of his predecessors, Trevino operated under the mantra that he could simply send his guys out to play. No sense in fretting over pairings and the like. Put players together who wanted to be together and let them go. Eleven of his 12 players were once or future major championship winners.It was also common to save the best players for last. In 1969, for example, it was no coincidence that Jacklin faced Nicklaus twice on the final day, when there were two eight-player singles sessions. Although the captains submit their lineups not knowing the order and pairings of the other team, it was pretty much understood that the strength would be at the end.Im thinking, What the hell is the point of that? Jacklin said. Lets start shifting things about a bit to get some momentum. The most important thing is to get ahead. From that first one in 83, I started to do that. Sometimes put the power at the front. Sometimes in the middle. Sometimes leave an anchor man.And I leaned so hard on the major winners. I told them I was going to do that. Anybody with the mental fortitude to be able to win a major had more going for him than just a tournament winner. I saw that was part of his role.Jacklin also had no problem leaving players on the bench. In 83, rookie Gordon Brand Jr. played only in singles. Lyle played only two matches. In 85, sensing that Faldos game was off, Jacklin made the decision to play him only once before singles.The 85 match was close heading to Sunday, when the Europeans won 7? of 12 points in singles and cruised to a 16? to 11? victory -- relief and joy the overriding emotions.Winning was euphoric, he said. It was a stepping stone from 83. We took that confidence we gained there and turned that into a home victory.It would be the last Ryder Cup not televised in the United States.Winning on the roadThere was no point in messing with success. Jacklin was named captain for the 1987 Ryder Cup, and he would again go up against Nicklaus on another of his home turfs -- Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.Not only was the course near Nicklaus hometown of Columbus, it was a true home game for the Americans, who were used to playing Muirfield Village during the annual Memorial Tournament that the Golden Bear had launched in 1976.But by now, however, the European team was turning into a powerhouse. Ballesteros, Langer, Faldo, Woosnam and Lyle had emerged as Europes Big Five. Olazabal came along to add more strength. Over their careers, they would combine to win 18 major championships.Tony was smart enough to ride them, said Strange, who played on all four U.S. teams that went up against the European teams captained by Jacklin. He had five of the best players in the world. They came around at the right time, pretty much the same age. And he would ride his top guys.In 1987, Ballesteros went 4-1, Langer 3-1-1, Faldo 3-1-1, Woosnam 3-1-1 and Lyle 3-1-1. Olazabal, a rookie, was 3-2. The Europeans forged a whopping 10? to 5? lead after two days, then fought off an American singles rally to win, 15-13.We rolled up at Muirfield on the Concorde, which was pretty darned impressive, and then we came wandering down the stairs in cashmere jackets, and it created an atmosphere, Faldo said. Tony kept everybody together. He wanted the whole team to get together. Rather than saying, well, Ill disappear and eat in a restaurant and see you guys tomorrow, everybody ate together. We all stayed in the houses down the first hole at Muirfield Village and he created that [feeling] you really do feel as one.Afterward, Jacklin insisted the entire team show up at a local hotel where European supporters had gathered for a celebration. The idea was to go visit with them for a few minutes, express gratitude for coming, and then get back to Muirfield Village to resume their own private party.The team walked in with the Ryder Cup and was given a standing ovation. The supposed short visit lasted hours as the players and fans reveled in the accomplishment of winning for the first time in America. Jacklin recalled Ballesteros saying he was happy to stay with all the people. It was as good as it gets, he said.Personal tragedyHaving played his major role in turning the Ryder Cup from a drama-less U.S rout into a riveting contest, Jacklin considered what to do next. He pretty much had an open invitation to captain the Europeans for as long as he wanted, but wondered if that was a good idea.I was reluctant to do it, Jacklin said. There was nowhere else to go. He had won at home. He had won on the road. He had won for the first time in 28 years, then defeated Nicklaus team on the course the Golden Bear designed. He had set the model for future Ryder Cups.Why fool with fate, smudge the record?Jacklin ultimately was convinced to do it again with a return to The Belfry in 1989. But before that would occur, he suffered through his own personal turmoil.The Jacklins had moved to Spain in 1983 -- Tony had taken a job as director of golf at San Roque Club near Sotogrande. Jacklins wife Vivien, who was 44, was running errands one day in late April, 1988. Earlier she had complained of a headache, but there had been no other signs of distress. While driving, Vivien suffered a brain hemorrhage that killed her instantly. Her car swerved off the road, where she was later found by Jacklins friend, Dave Thomas.There was no sign of this, said Bellow, Jacklins long-time friend. It was a terrible, terrible shock. I remember the funeral; (actor) Sean Connery organized everything. And of course Tony was totally distraught.Vivien was buried on May 1, just seven months after that great triumph at Muirfield Village. The celebration and all that glory seemed so distant. Suddenly, Jacklin was alone. Two close friends of his had also died that year. Thomas, who had helped him get a club pro job in Spain, became estranged from him due to a business deal gone bad.It was such a dark time that Jacklin said he contemplated suicide.A short time after Viviens death, Jacklin met a woman less than half his age, resulting in an affair that made its way to the British tabloids. The woman, Donna Methven, sold her story to Londons Sun, and the resulting backlash was devastating. Jacklin said much of what was in the story was not true, but the damage was done.He had lost this fantastic girl who had been his life partner, Bellow said of Viviens death. He was in a bad period. And [the tabloids] couldnt wait to pounce.But not long after the tabloid woes began to wane, Jacklin was visiting a neighbor and met Astrid Waagen, a Norwegian who had two children with her former husband Alan Kendall, a guitarist with the Bee Gees.Only a few months later they were married. Their son, Sean -- named after Connery -- now 25, plays on the European Challenge Tour.I knew nothing about him when I met him, said Astrid Jacklin, who now helps manage his business affairs. I asked him what his business was and he told me he was a golfer. I said, I know, but what is your business? I knew he played golf, but I didnt know you could make money playing it.Jacklin wasnt making much money playing then, his income derived from the club job as well as corporate opportunities surrounding his Ryder Cup captaincy. Aside from the £2,000 he and the other players were given as expense money for the Ryder Cup, he was not paid a salary for performing those duties.Astrid was with him when he captained the team for the final time in 1989, another tense match that ended in a 14-14 tie, meaning Europe would retain the Cup.It was time obviously after that to go, Jacklin said. I honestly thought it would have been self-indulgent to keep on doing it. As it grew in stature, things became a bit more difficult. But it was a fantastic journey.... If youd have asked me back then I wouldnt have thought the outcome would be the way its been over these years.The legacyBefore Jacklin became European captain, the U.S. led the series 20-3-1. Starting with the 1983 Ryder Cup, Europe has gone 10-5-1, including Jacklins 2-1-1 record; Europe has gone 8-2 over the past 10. The U.S. has lost three straight for the second time in seven Ryder Cups. The Americans havent won in Europe since 1993.In the aftermath of the last defeat at Gleneagles, the U.S. instituted a controversial Task Force to assess its woes and come up with a new plan of attack. All it needed to do was look at Jacklins model, which was basically all about studying the various players, matching games and personalities, making sure everyone was comfortable, and forging continuity from one Ryder Cup to the next.It seems obvious now, but Europe was stuck on losing before it went outside the box and chose Jacklin.Put quite simply, it was probably the most important decision made by the Europeans in terms of helping turn around a losing record in the matches, said Schofield, the former European Tour chief executive.Tony was the right captain at the right time. He brought Seve on board and molded a winning formula and team. His template stands today.Jacklin would serve under his former assistant Gallacher in 1991s War By The Shore won by the United States. And then Jacklin would start to think about his own golf game again.He moved to Florida in 1993 to start preparing for what is now known as the PGA Tour Champions for 50-and-older golfers. He played mini-tours around the Palm Beach area and represented PGA National -- where he had captained his first Ryder Cup -- to hone his game. After turning 50, he won in his fourth start. He played 109 events over four years, winning twice and posting 12 top-10s, earning some $1.1 million.But Jacklin tired of the travel. He got into golf course design -- he and Nicklaus collaborated on The Concession course and development in Bradenton, and for a time he represented the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia before settling in Bradenton 16 years ago. Today he makes corporate appearances, plays a little golf and works on those drawings.Tony was an icon, Nicklaus said. He was a major champion, having won the British Open and the U.S Open and he played in several Ryder Cups. Tony was a hero throughout the U.K. and all the Ryder Cup players of that era looked up to him. He was their star. And he was very enthusiastic and passionate about the Ryder Cup.That passion still exists today. Jacklin lives full time in America where dreams come true, he said. But he understandably still bleeds for Europe. He and Astrid will be at Hazeltine this week as guests of the European Tour, and if they look upon the landscape where Jacklin long ago captured the U.S. Open, theyll see vast grandstands, huge hospitality venues and thousands upon thousands of spectators.If he were so inclined, Jacklin could claim his fair share of credit for all the opulence. Before him, the Ryder Cup struggled to be relevant. Now it rivals the Masters for the biggest event in golf.But for Jacklin, it was really all about pride. About excelling when given an equal opportunity. About molding superstar individuals into a team. About standing up to the vast nation he loved, but one he dearly wanted to beat.A tour of his home eventually leads to the room filled with golf memorabilia, the numerous drawings created by Jacklin as well as various photos and paintings.One stands out: a large portrait mounted over the fireplace, Jacklin wearing the yellow sweater vest he had on that day at The Belfry in 1989 when Europe celebrated again.And there is Jacklin hugging the Ryder Cup -- as if he owns it.

LONDON -- Jumping two weight classes to challenge Gennady Golovkin, Kell Brooks ambitious challenge wasnt given much hope. Cheap Spurs Jerseys .Despite that leap, a valiant Brook made it far tougher for the world middleweight champion than anticipated as they traded punches for four rounds in a thrilling, open contest Saturday night in London.But Brooks vision was affected after his right eye socket was broken in the second round and the previously unbeaten welterweight champion began to fade. After the formidable Golovkin unloaded a rapid succession of powerful punches in the fifth round, the Brooks corner threw in the towel.The last round he couldnt breathe or move, Golovkin said.The 30-year-old Brook was taken to a hospital from O2 Arena in London for his eye to be assessed.I am gutted because there was much, much more to come from me, Brook said before leaving the ring. I was just getting started but I was seeing five of them out there, I think I have bust an eye socket.The 34-year-old Golovkin was full of praise for Brook but never felt his WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight belts were under threat.I know my style, I respect him, hes good but not so strong, Brook said. He just touched but I didnt feel his power. So many punches but I didnt feel them.The Kazakh improved his record to 36-0 and is now targeting a unification fight with Billy Joe Saunders to claim the minor WBO title.Im open for everybody, Golovkin said.Brook succumbed to the first defeat of his professional career in his 37th fight after being one of the few fighters willing to take on the fearsome Golovkin. After initially looking unsteady and anxious, Brook grew in confidence landing left hooks on Golovkin and unsettling him with three-punch combinations in the second round.I expected him to be a bigger puncher, Brook said. In the second round he broke my eye socket but I was tricking him, I was frustrating him. I was starting to settle into it but when you see three, four, five of them its difficult.I hurt him. When youre in the fight you can see, his legs buckled a little .... I would fight him again, with a good eye.Brooks trainer, Dominic Ingle, was jeered by the capacity arena crowd after throwing in the towel. But the swelling on a cut by Brooks right eye showed he couldnt continue. He was tiring as a resilient Golovkin was showing he could not be worn down.You cant be fighting a guy like Golovkin when you cant even focus on the guy, promote Eddie Hearn said, referring to Brooks eye injury.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum took a bit of a gamble when he struck out on his own to put on the Manny Pacquiao-Jessie Vargas pay-per-view card Nov. Wholesale Lions Jerseys . 5 without the support of HBO, Pacquiaos longtime broadcaster, which declined to be involved because of its commitment to Saturdays Sergey Kovalev-Andre Ward light heavyweight title bout.The network did not want to put on two HBO PPV events in the same month, but Arum said he had little choice but go on Nov. 5 to work around Pacquiaos time off from his responsibilities as a senator in the Philippines, a post he was elected to in May.This week, Arum told ESPN that his decision to have Top Rank produce and distribute the event on its own was successful. The Pacquiao-Vargas fight sold around 300,000, probably a little more pay-per-view buys, he said.It did about the same as Pacquiao-[Timothy] Bradley, Arum said of the third fight between the rivals that took place in April and was produced and distributed by HBO.So if it did about the same as that fight, why do I need HBO to be involved? Why do I have to pay them a percentage when we can do the same thing on our own?In the immediate aftermath of Pacquiao-Bradley III, Arum said the fight generated between 400,000 and 500,000 buys, but it will be closer to 400,000 than 500,000. Arum deemed the Pacquiao-Bradley III number disappointing, and it wound up doing considerably less.Arum said he did not have precise numbers yet for the Pacquiao-Vargas pay-per-view sales because one thing we cant do is get a handle on all the numbers as quickly as HBO can. They have that down pat, but well learn. That said, the numbers are still coming in and were pleased. We had a good show, we put on some entertaining fights, and we made money, the fighters made money, so thats good.During the lead-up to the fight, which took place at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Arum said they needed to do about 180,000 pay-per-view buys to break even.Although Vargas was not a well-known opponent and nobody expected Pacquiao to generate the seven-figure pay-per-view sales he did during his heyday a few years ago, Arum said he thought one reason the fight would wind up doing about 300,000 sales is because consumers knew that without HBOs involvement that there would be no delayed broadcast on the network a week later. Arum also said he was aware that because fans can easily find live streams on social media, it likely robbed the event of hundreds of thousands of buys.Its always been a problem, but its gotten worse, Arum said. Its stealing, and its not just a Pacquiao fight. Its Canelo [Alvarez] fights. Its UFC pay-per-views. We have our attorneys working on things.Pacquiao came out of a brief retirement after the third Bradley fight and the Senate election to easily outpoint Vargas to regain the welterweight belt he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in their May 2015 blockbuster that broke all boxing box-office records, including a record 4.6 million pay-per-view buys for the joint HBO/Showtime event.

CLEMSON, S. Arron Afflalo Jersey .C. -- Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson wont lose focus now that the fourth-ranked Tigers have achieved their goal of reaching the Atlantic Coast Conference title game. Hes aware any misstep the next two weeks could cost them a national championship.Clemson (10-1; No. 4 College Football Playoff) clinched its spot in the league title game in Orlando, Florida on Dec. 3 with a 35-13 win at Wake Forest last Saturday. The next step toward the national crown comes this weekend against revived rival South Carolina (6-5), which has already doubled its win total from last season with first-year coach Will Muschamp.Watson is primed for the final, playoff pushLast week, we were focusing on our second goal, that was to win the Atlantic Division, Watson said Monday. Our third goal is winning a state championship. Well just take to it this week, take it one day at a time, dont rush it and let everything take care of itself.Once the ACC championship comes, well take care of that, Watson said.That strategy means focusing on South Carolina, which shouldnt be too hard. A scrappy Gamecocks team in 2015 gave undefeated, No. 1-ranked Clemson all it could handle in 37-32 Tigers win.Tailback Wayne Gallman the Tigers cant let things come down to the wire this time, not with the playoffs at stake.We cant let go of what were trying to finish, he said.Watson, the junior Heisman Trophy contender, has faced South Carolinas experienced defense before, but is wary about the tweaks Muschamp has brought to the group.Those guys are going to have pride in what they do and prepare very well, Watson said. Muschamp is a great guy, great coach and theyre going to be very confident coming in here. They should be.The Tigers will be pretty confident, too, given Watsons history against the Gamecocks.As a freshman in 2014 he played with a torn ACL in his left knee, yet threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more in 35-17 victory that ended South Carolinas unprecedented five-game win streak in the rivalry. Last year, Watson ran for three scores and passed for a fourth in the Tigers win.Watson would like to finish things out with a win.Two weeks ago, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Watson was among several offensive playmakers headed to the NFL after this season. Watson has been coy about the pro talk, wanting to concentrate on his college career instead of where hell be next year.Ill just pray about it and well figure it out later on, he said.Muschamp said Watson is a great player, among the best in college football.Hes a guy thats up for the Heisman, and if they give it to him, theyre not making a mistake, Muschamp said. Hes really good. So hes a guy that weve got a lot of respect for.Clemson defensive end Christian Wilkins suspected the team would come out flat two weeks back at its lone stumble, a 43-42 home loss to Pitt . Wilkins sensed the energy was down the night before, something he felt returned before the Wake Forest win.We got exposed, Wilkins said. This week, were a bit more focused and getting the results we want.Swinney said his guys have been locked in all season long and doesnt expect that to change now. Checking off last weeks divisional goal -- the Tigers shared the division with No. 11 Louisville, but advanced to the title game because of their 42-36 win over the Cardinals last month -- has the Tigers hungry for more.Weve got opportunities these next couple of weeks to hit a couple of more goals, Swinney said.If the Tigers hit those benchmarks, they know theres a strong chance theyll land in the playoffs a second straight season.---More AP college football: Terrence Ross Jersey . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Danell Leyva wasnt even supposed to be competing in the Rio Games. Cheap Lions Jerseys Online .A dog bite to his leg slowed his preparations this spring and he was relegated to alternate status when the U.S. mens Olympic gymnastics team was announced in late June. He wasnt added to the five-man squad until John Orozco injured his left knee a month ago.On Tuesday, Leyva made the most of his second chance, winning silver medals in both the parallel and high bars.Nobody has a perfect day, but I feel like this was as close to perfect as I could possibly have done, he said. Im incredibly happy.Leyva was thrilled to have navigated through his many obstacles to win two medals. However, there was one person that was probably just a bit more jazzed about his triumph.His stepfather and coach Yin Alvarez ran around jumping and screaming -- basically freaking out -- after both of his performances.No matter what I do Yin is always more excited, Leyva said.Alvarez maintained that energy long after the final medal ceremony. He bounded through the mixed zone high-fiving people and sporting a huge grin.I always say any medal, any color is good, Alvarez said. So two silver medals in one competition in the same day is amazing.Leyva, who won a bronze medal in the all-around competition in London, went first on the parallel bars on Tuesday. He pulled off a nearly flawless routine, and when he stuck the landing without so much as a hop he knew hed be on the medal stand. He was even more confident after seeing his score of 15.900. But that didnt make the long wait for the final results any easier.It was a little stressful waiting for all the scores, he said.He wasnt able to let up and fully soak in the moment after he won his first medal with only about an hour until hed take on the high bars. He even issued a silent warning the apparatus as he was receiving his first medal of the day.Even when I was on the podium I was looking over at the high bar and I was like: `Im going to get you now, boy, he said.Leyva fell on high bar during the team competition a week ago as the Americans finished a disappointing fifth. Even though they were too far back for his late fall to have mattered much in the standings, Leyva was hard on himself about the miscue and was relieved to stick his routine in the event finals.This was absolutely redemption, not only for me but for the team as well, he said.He went last on the high bars, and his score of 15.500 knocked teammate Sam Mikulak out of a bronze medal and into fourth place. Leyvas big day gave the Americans three medals in mens gymnastics after Alex Naddour won bronze in the pommel horse.Leyvas work not only allowed him to bounce back after his tough day in team competition, it was validation for the 24-year-old.Things didnt happen the way I expected, and it was unfortunate the way I was named onto this team, he said. But thats what this medal is for -- to show that I deserved to be on that team just as much as John did. And this is for him just as much as its for me. Youth DaShawn Hand Jersey . Louis Cardinals.

So it would be a bit early for us to pull the trigger, Mundy said on Monday.Its not ideal. But were all human, we all make mistakes.

Im fully confident we have the resources, people and structures in place to get back to that really quickly.Mundy revealed he had voted for Fyfe to be captain in a previous player vote.But Mundy is keen to retain the role for at least one more year, saying he had learnt valuable lessons from 2016.The 31-year-old is fully fit after undergoing minor ankle surgery during the off-season.

The College Football Playoff selection committee doesnt meet for three more weeks, and heres why: It takes at least two months for conference races to sort themselves out and for the best teams in the country to separate from the rest of pack. Jamal Murray Jersey .Were almost halfway through the season and have a much better idea of which teams to take seriously -- and which to eliminate. Heres a look at the major lessons learned in Week 6:Houston is out The Cougars playoff hopes ended with their loss to Navy, and now they need help just to win the American Athletic West division. It was the game that changed the playoff picture the most; Houston was an X-factor with the potential to knock a second Power 5 conference out of the top four. Houstons chances at another New Years Six bowl are also in critical condition because it would have to win the AAC to have a chance at becoming the highest-ranked Group of 5 champion in the selection committees final top 25. The Cougars need Navy to lose twice in order to get back into the conference race.Tennessee is in a must-win situation against Alabama The Vols nine lives have officially expired. After losing to Texas A&M, Tennessee needs to beat Alabama next week, or it will open the door for Florida to possibly win the East. If the Vols have two losses and the Gators win out, Florida will win the East, which makes rescheduling the game against LSU of the utmost importance to the conference race. On the flip side, if Tennessee loses against Alabama and Florida loses at Arkansas on Nov. 5, the Vols (should they win their other remaining games) would still win the East because Tennessee would win the head-to-head tiebreaker. In order to stay in the drivers seat, though, Tennessee has no more margin for error.Its Washington and everyone else in the Pac-12 The Huskies have dismantled Stanford. Theyve plucked the Ducks. They have now officially manhandled the two programs that have combined to win the league in each of the past seven years. With its win over Oregon on Saturday, Washington snapped a 12-game losing streak to the Ducks and left no doubt it is the Pac-12s new contender for the College Football Playoff.Alabama is one step closer to surviving its season-defining stretch Alabamas win at Ole Miss was critical, but its win at Arkansas was where Bamas national title hunt really begins. It was the first of three straight games the Tide will play against ranked opponents, including Tennessee and Texas A&M. It was also the first of three road trips in a four-game span, including at LSU on Nov. 5. The Tides win against the Hogs was arguably the most impressive of Week 6, but its not going to get any easier.Ohio State and Michigan really need to play each other, not Rutgers The Big Ten heavyweights combined to outscore Rutgers 136-0 over the past two weeks. Thats not a typo. The CFP selection committee compares common opponents without incenting margin of victory, but the margin in this one stretches from Ann Arbor to Piscataway and is impossible to ignore. The committee will need the head-to-head result between Ohio State and Michigan to determine the Big Ten representative.Florida State still owns Miami The Canes made one of the best hires of the offseason when they brought in Mark Richt, but their seventh straight loss to Florida State -- as close as it was -- showed the Canes arent ready to close the gap with their rival. Much of that can be attributed to the Noles defense, which had been relentlessly criticized this season. Miami entered the game averaging 235 yards rushing; Florida State held the Hurricanes to 62 and had back-to-back sacks of Brad Kaaya in the fourth quarter. Miami snuck into the AP top 10 after beating Georgia Tech last week but came up short against its first ranked opponent of the season.Dont turn out the lights on Oklahoma just yet Its a long shot, yes, and Houstons loss to Navy certainly didnt help the Sooners résumé, but Oklahoma can still win out and win the Big 12. It would certainly need help -- another conference champion would have to flop along the way -- and it has to look like a top-four team by the end of November, dominating each opponent. The fact that the Sooners have two losses and no league title game to help compensate is going to be extremely difficult to overcome, but if they beat ranked opponents in Baylor and West Virginia, and Ohio State continues to dominate and win the Big Ten, theres simply no telling how the committee might view OU. Carmelo Anthony Jersey . Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team. Malik Beasley Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. . Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before. LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraskas fourth-quarter dominance showed up again Saturday. This time it was Terrell Newby leading the way.The senior ran for 113 of his 140 yards and scored two touchdowns in the last 15 minutes, just in time for the 15th-ranked Cornhuskers to turn back Illinois upset bid and win 31-16.Newby touched the ball on 18 of Nebraskas last 21 plays from scrimmage and the Cornhuskers (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) won going away after being down 16-10. They also avenged a 14-13 loss last year in Champaign.Newby, I thought, was a real man today, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said.Newby didnt have much choice. Fellow running back Devine Ozigbo went out of the game late in the third quarter with an ankle injury, and backup Mikale Wilbon was banged up.I knew I had to kind of carry the load from then on, Newby said. I accepted it and wanted to do everything in my power to get the victory.Newbys two TDs came as Nebraska scored 21 straight points to overcome a 16-10 deficit. The Huskers have outscored their five opponents 78-6 in the fourth quarter.Illinois (1-3, 0-1) got off only 10 offensive plays after taking its six-point lead with 7:40 left in the third quarter. The Illini have lost 14 straight and 23 of 24 against Top 25 opponents.We got better today. We still have a loss but I think we made improvements, Illinois coach Lovie Smith said. We hung in there throughout, had a lead for most of the game, but its about finishing. We didnt do that.Nebraska, favored by three touchdowns, turned over the ball on back-to-back possessions while falling behind. The Illini had to settle for field goals after each takeaway, allowing the Huskers to stay close.The Huskers went 18 plays in 10:42 to take a one-point lead early in the fourth. Nebraska kept the drive alive because of two huge penalties on the Illini. Chunky Clements had Tommy Armstrong Jr. stopped for a loss on a third-and-12, but he was called for a horse-collar tackle, and Darius Mosley was flagged for pass interference on a fourth-and-4.The biggest play, though, was when Newby picked up a first ddown by inches on a fourth-and-1 at the Illinois 4. Alex English Jersey. The spot stood after a video review.Its a game of inches, Newby said. I tried to do everything I could to stretch the ball out. Im glad it went our way.Newby went into the end zone from the 3 on the next play, and he finished the scoring with a 63-yard burst.Reggie Corbin led the Illini with 72 yards on nine carries, and Kendrick Foster scored their only touchdown on a 31-yard run. Wes Lunt was 13 for 22 for 133 yards.Definitely no moral victories, Lunt said, but were so close to breaking through. Were leading all the way up to the fourth and battled through adversity all game. But at the end, they made a few plays and won the game.THE TAKEAWAYILLINOIS: The Illini, who have lost three in a row since winning their opener, gave Nebraska all it could handle. The offense couldnt get going again once the Huskers took the lead, and the defense was on the field way too long.NEBRASKA: The Huskers should feel good about getting out of this one with a win considering all their injuries. Jordan Westerkamp was taken to a hospital to be evaluated after he appeared to take a knee to the back while getting tackled. Tight end Cethan Carter injured his elbow early in the game.Looking at our team and watching that thing take place, it appears to be a real good time for a bye week, Riley said.POLL IMPLICATIONSNebraska has a chance to move up, but the Huskers arent ready to break into the top 10 for the first time since 2011.LAST WORDWell, did you all stay around for the fourth quarter? That didnt look like much up until then. -- Riley.UP NEXTILLINOIS: The Illini return home to face Purdue, which they beat 48-14 last season.NEBRASKA: The Huskers have an open date next week before visiting Indiana on Oct. 15. It will be the Huskers first game against Indiana since they became Big Ten members in 2011.---Online:AP college football website: Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '

The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. LOUISVILLE, Ken. -- Its out of the frying pan and into the fire for No. 14 Louisville.Just days after taking on a challenging slate in one of the toughest in-season tournaments in the country at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas, the Cardinals (5-1) return to the KFC Yum! Center Wednesday night for a showdown vs. No. 15 Purdue during the annual ACC-Big Ten Challenge.Louisville coach Rick Pitino knows the Boilermakers (5-1) will be a tall test for his team.We are going to play two teams from the Big Ten and I think Purdue is one of the favorites to win it, Pitino said. They have a veteran team and they have tremendous size. ... They also shoot it really well from the one, two and three spots. They have a good inside attack and a good outside attack, and they have always been a good man-to-man defensive team.Purdues front line includes 7-foot-2, 290-pound center Isaac Haas, 6-9 Caleb Swanigan and 6-8 Vincent Edwards. Pitino said Purdues strength is more than just height.We have a couple of 7-footers as well, but Anas (Mahmoud) is 7-foot, 220. Haas is 7-foot-2, 290, Pitino explained. Thats a big difference. And Swanigan, hes 6-9 and 260 and uses his size well. We are likely going to have to play (7-1, 245-pound reserve) Matz (Stockman) more to counter their size.Purdue started the season with a 109-65 win over McNeese State before taking on Top 5 Villanova in a 79-76 loss that went down to the final possession. The Boilermakers have rebounded with wins over Georgia State, Utah State, Auburn and NJIT.Purdue coach Matt Painter said hes looking forward to the challenge at Louisville.Their overall length and athleticism is what stands out, Painter said. Theres times when you have to swallow your pride when they have two or three people on the basketball. Ive been shocked ... at the times people keep trying to challenge them when they swarm the basketball, and been impressed with their ability to defend and their ability to use their length -- not just at the rim, but contesting shots.Louisville started the season with three straight blowout wins over Evansville, William & Mary and Long Beach State, before heading to thhe Bahamas for the Battle 4 Atlantis. Wholesale Kings Jerseys. . After beating Old Dominion 68-62 in overtime to start the tournament, Louisville beat Wichita State 62-52 and had a 22-point lead on No. 9 Baylor before falling 66-63 in the title game.This is the first team I have had in a while where the players dislike losing as much as the coaches do, Pitino said. They were very disappointed in losing to Baylor...but they got back to work this week.Swarming defenses like Louisvilles have been an issue for Purdue in the past. Villanova certainly used pressure defense to frustrate the Boilermakers, and Purdue fell victim to the University of Arkansas -- Little Rock in the NCAA Tournament last season due, in large part, to not handling UALRs full-court pressure.To combat that issue, Painter has been getting grad assistants involved wearing white shirts in practice. Those extra defenders are immune from fouls and are tasked with making life difficult for ball-handlers.We cant have the (turnover) numbers we have and expect to beat good people -- we just cant, Painter said. I like our matchup against anyone if we give ourselves a chance. If were constantly in transition because we try to take on two or three guys and are turning it over, I dont like that matchup. I dont like our matchup against anybody in transition.The Boilermakers are learning.If you show youre going to struggle with it and be careless with the ball, youre going to get pressed, point guard P.J. Thompson said. But the first few times they press you, if you really show them youre good and its not going to bother us and you get the ball in the frontcourt, it lays off a little bit.Painter said scheduling games against teams like Louisville or Villanova isnt easy, but they will provide long-term benefits for his team.Its hard to schedule games of this nature, Painter said. Everyones going to play in the Big 10-ACC Challenge, the Crossroads Classic, things of that nature. Not everyone wants to play on the road, even if you do a home and home.

BUFFALO, N. Norman Powell Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane is out indefinitely after cracking three ribs in Thursdays season opener.Coach Dan Bylsma said Kane will miss weeks, the latest misfortune for a Sabres team that is already without top-line center Jack Eichel, who will miss several weeks after being diagnosed with a high ankle sprain Wednesday.Kane was hurt when he crashed into the end boards during the second period of Buffalos 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. He was taken to the hospital after the game and released Thursday night, Kane said.While racing Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin for a loose puck up the left wing in the Montreal zone. Kane reached for the puck when the two bumped. Kane lost his balance, fell and slid with his left elbow slamming into the boards. Kane doubled over in pain as he was escorted off the ice.Kane posted on his Twitter page Friday, Thanks to everyone for their well wishes.Kane had 20 goals and had 15 assists last season for the Sabres after being acquired in a trade with Winnipeg. He missed 17 games with a knee injury.Kane had a tumultuous offseason in Buffalo. The 25-year-old player faces four counts of noncriminal harassment, one count of disorderly conduct and a count of misdemeanor trespass from a fight at a downtown bar in June. He is accused of grabbing three women by the hair and neck in separate encounters inside the bar and returning to the bar after being forcibly removed by a bouncer. He pleaded not guilty to all charges in August and is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 31.The Sabres struggled before and after Kanes injury in the opener. They were not only without Eichel but also forward Kyle Okposo (bruised knee) and defenseman Dmitry Kulikov (back), two offseason acquisitions expected to play significant roles this season.Okposo and Kulikov both practiced Friday and will likely return during Buffalos upcoming four-game road trip, which starts Sunday at Edmonton.Eichel said Friday he does not want to rush his return. The second-year star spoke following practice, using a scooter to move around the locker room with his left foot in a stabilizing boot.High ankle sprains are tricky injuries, Eichel said. You just want to let everything heal and just go about the whole process the right way and take it day by day and listen to the trainers, listen to the doctors. Really, its a lot about patience and sticking to your game plan.He will wear the stabilizing boot for about 10 days and then have his ankle evaluated.Patience is important for this, he said. Its a long season, you dont want to rush back and then see yourself out again.The injury occurred with less than 10 minutes remaining in Wednesdays practice when he became entangled with a defenseman and his leg buckled.Its a bad bounce, but hockeys a physical game and injuries are part of it, he said. So more than anything its how you handle it and how you return.Eichel was selected with the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft. He is coming off a solid rookie season in which he had 24 goals and 32 assists in 81 games last year. Eichel played one year at Boston University and became the second freshman to win college hockeys top honor, the Hobey Baker Award. Discount Raptors Jerseys . Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs. C.J. Miles Jersey . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. Dan Hawkins. To tell you the truth I dont know much about him, other than his experiences in NCAA football at Colorado State and Boise State. But this much I do know: he is about as complete an opposite of Marc Trestman as there could be. Marc was stoic, reserved and always under control - especially in terms of self-control. He did a masterful job of learning CFL football with humility and grace and taking that learning experience and producing great on-field results. Give Jim Popp credit for picking the right coach at the right time. It was sometimes difficult to have an engaging conversation with Trestman as he viewed the media as an adversary more so than an asset. Hawkins, the Alouettes new coach, is a quote machine . He is definitely in it to win but you sense he wants to have a good time doing it as well. My favorite Hawkins quote so far: "blessed are the flexible as they will never be bent out of shape." That was followed up with "own your own existence." And about his coaching approach: "always chasing greatness with excellence and class." Hawkins will be fun to work with and be around. Will he win? Im not sure. Coaches with no Canadian experience dont have a good track record but until we see him working on the sidelines, there is no sense in judging him. I will say this about the transition from Trestman to Hawkins: if the latter could learn one thing from the foormer it would be the priority Trestmen put on protecting the quarterback and getting to the quarterback. Jakob Poeltl Jersey. It was a major emphasis and consistency of the "Trestman era" and in a passing league, a must for success. Last years Alouettes team was missing something and Im not sure what it was. You can rationalize they were one dropped pass in the end zone away from another Grey Cup appearance, but there was a collective burning desire absent last year. Maybe it was just me but something invisible, not tangible, seemed to be missing. On offence they were the best red zone team in the league, scoring 63 percent of the time, and the best at protecting the quarterback with only 30 sacks allowed. But on the other side of the ball Montreal was dead last in red zone defence, allowing points 67 percent of the time, and on special teams dead last in both punt return yardage and coverage on opposition punts. All that said, the reality is as long as Anthony Calvillo is healthy, Montreal is going to win games. I dont know if it is more difficult to take over a winning program or a losing one. With a losing team the expectations are not immediate but with a winning team, you generally have good-to-great players to work with. Either way the "Hawkins experiment" is on lead by Popp. His last experiment led to two Grey Cups for Montreal; this one could be equally interesting.
