Falcons vs. Saints: Takeaways and irrational reactions to the loss DWAhem.Alcohol Atlanta Falcons T-Shirt , my only friend.Alcohol, there to the end. My family, my friends, they’ve left me again.Alcohol, alcohol, my only friend.Dave ChoateInjuries may very well cost the Falcons this season, but we’re not dead yet. I still believe the Falcons are talented enough to make the best of the rough hand they’ve been dealt, injury-wise, through the first three weeks of the season. It’s just getting harder and harder every week to thread that needle, what with the increasing number of ailments and the defense’s alarming decline minus their best players. What is clear is that the Falcons are going to have to lean heavily on their offense the rest of the way, and they’re going to need something mighty and heroic and heretofore unseen from what’s left of the defense to make it work. But they’re not dead yet. Kendall JacksonPLEASEStop pissing away Matt Ryan’s awesome performances.Cory Woodroof Atlanta will have to, once more Atlanta Falcons Hats , rely on high-power offense to win games. It’s almost kind of comical to think that, after 2017, Atlanta would once again have to resort to the good-old days of explosive offensive performances to win ball games because of a lagging defense. This time, it’s of no fault of the organization, of course. Injuries have ravaged a once-promising unit, and only a Hail Mary trade for FS Earl Thomas, the addition of a stalwart pass rusher via trade and the swift return of Deion Jones will stabilize the on-field output. You’re not even guaranteed one of those right now. If the offense ever falters, this team does not have the personnel to take down the league’s best teams. Even on a day where they score 37 points, the defense still let a loss slip through its fingers. It’s fair to be pessimistic for this team’s postseason outlook. Quite frankly, it might be wise. But stranger things have happened, and Atlanta is still, believe it or not Atlanta Falcons Hoodie , in a position to contend for a playoff spot if this offense keeps playing like this and if the defense can rally just enough to be mediocre. The schedule gets a bit easier after Pittsburg, too. Though, no game in the NFL is a given, nor is a season. 2018 has been unexpected in a myriad of ways. One wonders what other surprises await for the year.Carter Breazeale The offense will have to bail out the defense -- constantly. To echo Cory, this season now falls squarely onto the shoulders of the offense. I was optimistic that with the talented personnel that the Falcons possessed, the defense could blossom into a top-five unit in the league. Injuries have laid waste to that prediction, and the best we can aim for is a defensive unit that keeps games within reach. Matt Ryan and Steve Sarkisian seem to have finally developed a cohesion on offense, and there’s no better timing because if the Falcons want to remain competitive they’re going to have to score loads of points. TorgoYou can’t win if you can’t even walk.The 2016 team lost quite a few players to injury over the course of the season. But this team already has four starters - including two of last year’s Pro Bowlers - on injured reserve. I really do think the approach to preseason was a factor, in that the players didn’t have enough actual game reps to ramp up to full game endurance by the opener against the Eagles.As for this game, I first got the sinking feeling very early, when the Falcons threw a bomb and the officials missed an easy interference call. And when Will Lutz hit the upright but still got the three points, that told me that somehow Cheap Customized Atlanta Falcons Jerseys , some way, this would not be our day.So the Falcons are now 1-1 in the critical division games. It’s not over yet, as the offense is looking better every week. Also, every team plays four games against division winners from the prior season, and we already have two of those games out of the way. The defense needs to find some answers, but at least we have a pretty good defensive coaching staff in place to make that happen.So the season is far from over, but the team can’t withstand many more injuries on defense. Penalties for violations of the league’s new rules governing the use of the helmet dropped in the last two weeks of the preseason after the NFL clarified that inadvertent contact should not result in a flag.That trend continued in Thursday night’s opener. Officials were not at all shy about calling penalties as there were 26 accepted penalties and two calls that offset, but none of them were for a player lowering his helmet to initiate contact.It’s one game and the 15 to come on Sunday and Monday might bring a different result, but the change made in August may have alleviated some of the concern about how much the game would change because of the rule change.While the new helmet rule did not come up, a new part of the roughing the passer rule did get called. Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett was flagged for landing his body weight on Nick Foles after Foles delivered a pass in the first half.

Late in summer 2016 Womens Robert Alford Jersey , Joel Embiid was fuming. According to ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz, Embiid was stomping around the Sixers’ old practice facility, at one point chucking a basketball across the hardwood. He had a workout scheduled with a marquee college big man prospect, but it got cancelled at the last minute. Instead, he had to face off against a 37-year old Elton Brand who was on the last legs of his NBA career.”The night before, I’d been watching Shaq’s highlights, and I wanted the competition,” Embiid told Arnovitz. “I needed someone to go back at me.”It sounds like he needed a competitor like Jimmy Butler, but Butler was 750 miles away at the Chicago Bulls’ practice facility, busy exchanging profanities with Rajon Rondo over who got to defend Isaiah Canaan, the hottest scorer on the opposing scrimmage team. Everything you need to know about the Jimmy Butler dramaJimmy Butler wants out of Minnesota. This is how we got here.Winners and Losers from the 76ers-Wolves blockbusterJimmy Butler’s ‘vociferous’ return to Timberwolves practice, explainedThe 7 most savage moments from Jimmy Butler’s interview with Rachel NicholsThe Timberwolves let the Jimmy Butler mess happenJimmy Butler was ruining the Timberwolves’ season, and maybe their futureInside the state of the 76ers before the Jimmy Butler tradeTwo years since then, the number of people on the business end of a Butler profanity-laced rant has gone up, ranging from teammates in Chicago and Minnesota — who he chastised in private and in front of cameras — to the Wolves’ front office. When he first returned to practice after demanding a trade from Minnesota, Butler challenged Karl-Anthony Towns to post him up, schooled the starters, and turned to GM Scott Layden. “You fucking need me!” he screamed. “You can’t win without me!” Meanwhile, Embiid got paired with Ben Simmons, who sat out a season due to injury and then won Rookie of the Year. In 2017, the 76ers drafted Markelle Fultz at No. 1 by trading the No. 3 pick — who became superstar-in-waiting Jayson Tatum — to Boston, in hopes of rounding out a homegrown Big Three. A shoulder injury held Fultz out most of his rookie year and infamously prompted the destruction of his once-perfect jumper. Sam Hinkie, who led the Sixers into the Process era, was forced out, and Bryan Colangelo was ushered in. At least three burner Twitter accounts Womens Ryan Schraeder Jersey , an internal investigation, and an exhausting search for a replacement later, Colangelo was fired and Brand, now a front-office executive, was promoted to the big job.Butler and the 76ers both had to take their hits. On Saturday, they merged out of necessity. The Sixers traded Jerryd Bayless, a second-round pick, and two Process babies who had been handpicked by Hinkie — Robert Covington and Dario Saric — to the Timberwolves for Butler and sophomore Justin Patton. Despite their meticulous planning, the multiple draft picks, and reserved cap space, the Sixers still needed a third star, so they took a gamble on the 29-year-old Butler, who is a free agent at the end of the year. They didn’t trade for him to put the sputtering Process era to an end, but to refuel it. Built unconventionally around a 7-foot shooter in Embiid and two point guards who can’t shoot in Simmons and Fultz, the 76ers are prone to bouts of offensive malaise, compounded by envelope-pushing plays that too often end in multiple turnovers. They needed Butler, a nightly 20-point scorer and stabilizing on-court force. And Butler, whose reputation for being old school has teetered into infamy over the past few months, needs a team like the 76ers — modern and analytics-obsessed, but also defensively inclined — to drag him into a version of the 21st century that aligns with his values.Butler was consistently at odds with Towns and Andrew Wiggins, the young pillars of Minnesota’s rebuild. That’s why it came as a surprise when Embiid told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon he discussed his new potential teammate with them and “they thought we were definitely going to get along.” It makes more sense if you separate personality from persona.The kid from Tomball, Texas — who used to strut around Chicago in cowboy boots, blast Garth Brooks from the locker room, stan Taylor Swift, and imitate wrestling moves on his teammates — is more famous for his 5 a.m. workouts http://www.falconsfootballauthentics.com/julio-jones-jersey-authentic , locker room tirades, and throwback attitude. Meanwhile, Embiid, the NBA’s best tweeter and troll, is known as the class clown. But it’s easy to forget how serious Embiid is and how funny Butler can be. At their core, they’re both hard-boiled workers with a nose for mischief. There’s a reason why Butler is arguably the NBA’s most meme-worthy star, and why Embiid relishes roasting big men on the floor as much as he does online. Their jokes don’t offset their intensity. Instead, the jokes are an extension of that competitiveness. After getting blown out by the Raptors on the eve of Halloween, Embiid stewed in his own frustration. The Sixers’ new switch-happy defensive scheme was out of sorts. “I’m the guy behind, so if I call something, my teammates gotta respect it and they gotta honor it,” he told me that night. “We have a lot of communication problems. That’s the key to a great defense.”Later, he added, “I gotta communicate better. If our defense is not good, I feel like I’m not doing a great job so I gotta do a better job. I don’t ever allow someone to give up 129 points. That’s bad. I’m pissed about it.”The message was not dissimilar to what Butler has tried to get across in Minnesota: stern, public, focused on effort, disappointed in the gulf between who they are and who they could be. But Embiid has a less explosive (read: less profane) way of communicating, and he put himself on the list of people who needed to be held accountable.And unlike Minnesota, where Butler was supposed to imbue work ethic by osmosis to a franchise that hadn’t made the playoffs in more than a decade, Embiid isn’t alone.Bill Streicher-USA TODAY SportsWhen 76ers head coach Brett Brown took over in 2013, he deliberately hung posters all over the walls of the practice facility that read, “Philly hard, Philly real, Philly edge.” The goal was to constantly remind the team what it meant to be a 76er www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com , evoking memories of Allen Iverson stepping over Tyronn Lue in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, or Charles Barkley crashing against floorboards for loose balls. A few days prior to the Raptors game, after the 76ers dropped back-to-back road contests against the Bucks and Pistons, the coaching staff convened with the players, hoping to remind them who they were supposed to be. “They didn’t call out anyone as a person but they called us out as a team,” T.J. McConnell told me. “We all took it personal and decided it’s not good enough and that we need to be better.” In Butler, Embiid now has an aid and kindred spirit: a dogged, prideful defender who will call out perimeter switches and funnel opponents into his towering 7-foot frame. A core of Simmons, Butler, and Embiid could wreak havoc defensively for years. But Butler will have to adjust to Philly’s culture. Simmons and Embiid are not Towns and Wiggins, but they’re still young players: prone to inconsistency and still figuring out who they are on the court. When things momentarily go off the rails, Butler will have to be patient and measured, especially if Fultz — whose road to reclaiming his potential, let alone tapping into it, looks long — sticks around. And if Butler chides, he must do it behind closed doors. The microphone never helps him. Butler is a rare combination: an open book, easy to read, but hard to manipulate. His intensity does not flood onto the court and blur his decision-making ability. Instead, it is defined by Butler’s need to assuage his anxieties. When something is wrong, his first impulse has always been to consider what more he can do. More from Seerat SohiThe scripted chaos of Stephen CurryLeBron James knows that winning big will erase any early strugglesDanny Green is the key to making the Kawhi Leonard trade workAnthony Davis is leading a big man training revolutionOperation Keep Kawhi is already workingButler’s instincts turned him from a near-homeless 13-year-old to a JuCo standout to a first-round draft pick to an NBA All-Star, so you can see why he hangs onto them. But in the fragile ecosystem of a locker room, Butler’s aggression rarely translates positively to others.He has always known that, even if he hasn’t been able to help himself. When I profiled him at the 2016 All-Star game in February, he joked he had to stop telling the truth (i.e. criticizing his teammates) in the media, because it always got him in trouble. He led the NBA in minutes at the time Atlanta Falcons T-Shirt , and he liked presenting himself as an archaic heel, the foil to a league charging in the direction of rest and injury prevention. That didn’t lend much credibility to his insistence that he was sitting out games in Minnesota because his body needed it.But even back then, he admitted his own intensity wasn’t healthy. “I say that I don’t wanna sit down, I wanna play all those minutes, but I really be tired of playing like I’m Superman or something” Butler told me then. “They hit me with Kryptonite, then I hurt my knee.” He hurt his knee again last year, tearing his meniscus and missing almost two months. Butler’s mentality may run in opposition to the way analytics have transformed the game, but he isn’t ignorant to their benefits. The question is whether he can lean into those moments of rationality. The Sixers, a numbers-obsessed franchise that wants to hang their hats on being tougher, longer, and grittier than their opponents, could provide the happy medium that allows his aggression to thrive and his joints to heal. At the very least, they’ll field one of the most intense locker rooms in the league. Butler’s favorite pop star put it best: It’s gonna be forever, or it’s gonna go down in flames. This week in recruiting is a collection of thoughts and things of interest from me as a recruiting expert that either didn’t rise to the level of being their own story, or for which I did not have time to make into a story this week.Of interestThis week was notable for the commitments of two elite running backs. John Emery Jr., of Destrehan (La.), committed to LSU. He is a bona fide 5-star recruit. Emery was at one point committed to Georgia, but decommitted shortly after LSU beat Georgia by three scores in October. LSU now has commitments from the vast majority of the best players in the state.In turn, Georgia gained a commitment from Kenny McIntosh, of Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) University School. McIntosh is the brother of former Miami DT R.J. McIntosh (2014-17 at The U). And in addition to being a good runner, he is a legitimate threat in the passing game. Miami isn’t sure where it will turn.Other CommitmentsArkansas added a commitment from four-star New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr defensive back Devin Bush. DecommitmentsNo big ones this week. QuicklyMichigan has a big group of visitors in town.Some Ohio State players received recruiting ranking bumps.Here’s a look at what Tennessee is doing on the recruiting trail. Our Alabama site gives its recruiting predictions. Etc.Here are my top bets of the week. It’s been a very strong season for my gambling column.

Falcons snap counts for the win against the Panthers This week’s snap counts don’t reveal any deep http://www.authenticsatlantafalcons.com/cheap-jake-matthews-jersey , earth-shaking insights into how the Falcons performed or their future plans for players, but there are still some key takeaways to share. Let’s get to it. OffenseJake Matthews: 63Alex Mack: 63Brandon Fusco: 63Ryan Schraeder: 63Matt Ryan: 62Austin Hooper: 53Wes Schweitzer: 51Mohamed Sanu: 48Julio Jones: 48Tevin Coleman: 41Calvin Ridley: 35Logan Paulsen: 29Ito Smith: 18Justin Hardy: 14Ricky Ortiz: 12Andy Levitre: 12Marvin Hall: 9Eric Saubert: 8Matt Schaub: 1The big note here is that Wes Schweitzer essentially played all but a dozen snaps at left guard and did a great job of it. Throughout his young career, we’ve heard analysts say that he should be a right guard, and that may very well be where he settles. If Levitre has to miss time and he keeps playing like this in relief, though, it may be that he’ll be pushing for Levitre’s likely-vacated job a year from now. Baby steps, though.As expected, Tevin Coleman dominated snaps, playing about two-thirds of them against roughly a third for Ito Smith. Brian Hill didn’t get a snap on offense, and if Smith looks this good on a weekly basis, that isn’t going to change.Also noteworthy was that Logan Paulsen got so many snaps, especially compared to Eric Saubert. The Falcons wanted to run and Paulsen’s a capable blocker, so that addition made a ton of sense. I think the results speak for themselves.Marvin Hall showed his value to this offense on his very limited snaps, pulling down a nice 30 yard reception. Hall’s never going to be a major factor on offense, but his deep speed and solid hands make him a situationally useful player, and the Falcons will find ways to use him. Matt Schaub should not get another snap for the rest of the year, please and thank you. DefenseRobert Alford: 67Desmond Trufant: 67Ricardo Allen: 67De’Vondre Campbell: 67Brian Poole: 59Duke Riley: 58Grady Jarrett: 55Jordan Richards: 53Vic Beasley: 53Terrell McClain: 37Takkarist McKinley: 36Brooks Reed: 32Deadrin Senat: 25Jack Crawford: 23Foye Oluokun: 15Damontae Kazee: 14Derrick Shelby: 6Blidi Wreh-Wilson: 2Keith Tandy: 1It sounds like Damontae Kazee might not be suspended, in which case Jordan Richards’ snap count a week from now ought to be a lot lower. The Falcons had to like some of what they saw from him in run support, but he was an expected liability in coverage, and both Kazee and Keith Tandy (who saw just one snap) are probably better bets in that regard. The Falcons seem hellbent on finding a role for Richards, but I really don’t want to have this team relying on him to cover quality tight ends and make open field tackles until he’s more comfortable.It’s noteworthy that Takkarist McKinley played so little compared to Vic Beasley despite showing better results in his snaps. That would seem to lend credence to the idea that he’s either hurt, was having a conditioning issue, or somehow ran afoul of the coaching staff the way Duke Riley did before that final Panthers drive. Whatever the reason, I hope to see more snaps for Takk on a weekly basis, as he’s one of the team’s true impact defenders up front.You’ll likely see Foye Oluokun’s snap count go up this week. He filled in for Duke Riley on the game’s final drive, an ominous sign for the second-year linebacker, and is a player the Falcons seem keen to find a role for.Otherwise Black Terrell McClain Jersey , few surprises here. The Falcons are going to continue to lean heavily on their secondary and the always underrated De’Vondre Campbell as they weather the loss of Keanu Neal and Deion Jones. If they’re down Derrick Shelby, as well, you can expect Steven Means to be active next weekend. Special TeamsJustin Bethel: 22Kemal Ishmael: 19Eric Saubert: 18Marvin Hall: 18Keith Tandy: 18Corey Nelson: 18Foye Oluokun: 18Jordan Richards: 15Matt Bosher: 15Blidi Wreh-Wilson: 14Robert Alford: 10Logan Paulsen: 10Justin Hardy: 9Josh Harris: 9The Falcons wasted no time at all throwing Keith Tandy and Corey Nelson into the special teams fire. While the results were a little uneven against the Panthers, the Falcons have a strong core group to lean on, and somehow Robert Alford out-snaps every other player every week between defense and special teams. That dude is tough.It’s worth noting that the Falcons barely gave any special teams work to Duke Riley this week as he acclimated to a starting role, while Foye Oluokun got plenty of run for the second straight week. Otherwise, these are names you expect. When Florida State visits Notre Dame in South Bend on Saturday night, the Fighting Irish will bust out green jerseys, something they’ve done periodically for decades. The color scheme ND chose was, uh, interesting: It might be a little surprising to consider a game against a 4-5 Florida State to be a special game worthy of special gear, but the Irish are treating it as a Senior Night reward for a team that’s 9-0. Plus, when you’re on course for a Playoff bid, any game is a big game. And FSU and Notre Dame have some deep championship history together.The exact debut for Notre Dame in green jerseys is unknown, but the Irish started wearing them on occasion in the 1920s. Former Irish coach Knute Rockne was first with the idea for his players to put on the shamrock-colored threads, mostly for contrasting purposes, school historians say: The Fighting Irish won that game against Navy, and the green jerseys worked against Navy the next year, 1928, too. The greens came out at various times under different coaches over the years, but not too regularly until Frank Leahy took over in 1942. 1947 Heisman winner Johnny Lujack wore a green jersey when he was on the cover of Life magazine. Leahy’s teams used the green jerseys more often than not during his tenure, and that continued through the Terry Brennan years, which ended in 1958. EbayThe next two coaches, Joe Kuharich and Hugh Devore, only used them sparingly, per the school. In the 1970s, Notre Dame started using the green jerseys to surprise USC.The school’s account of a 1977 game in South Bend: Dan Devine was the Irish’s coach at that point. He had Notre Dame wear green for 44 straight games at one point Black Brandon Fusco Jersey , up to his last game in 1980. Devine’s Irish were 32-9-1 in green.In 1985, Notre Dame pulled a halftime switch, going from blue jerseys to green at halftime in a game against USC.The Irish were already up 27-0, but coach Gerry Faust had to keep his word: “The rule doesn’t specifically say you cannot do this,” Big 12 referee Mike Defee told SB Nation, years later, when asked whether a team these days could do this. “It says players shall wear colors of contrasting color.”Since the ‘80s, the green jerseys have settled in as just an occasional thing.They’re usually reserved for bigger games.“The 1992 Sugar Bowl against Florida sticks out quite a bit,” One Foot Down’s Joshua Vowles told me. “Jerome Bettis ran wild in the white version with green numbers. So dope. Rick Mirer and Bettis doing the Gator chomp is pretty much my favorite picture ever.” They wore them again for the ‘95 Fiesta Bowl, losing to Colorado 41-24. Bob Davie’s 1999 Gator Bowl team lost to Georgia Tech wearing them, and ND lost to Boston College in 2002 in them under Ty Willingham. Thanks to outcomes of certain games while wearing them, some ND fans have unpleasant memories of the jerseys. That BC game “was the classic example of when not to wear them,” OFD’s Vowles said of his most memorable green jersey game memories. “And ND lost. This is why Irish fans cringe at the thought of wearing the green.” More recently, Charlie Weis’ teams went 1-2 in green, losing twice to USC and beating Army: Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesOne of those USC losses was the “Bush Push” game, in which Reggie Bush literally pushed Matt Leinart into the end zone for the winning TD with seconds left: Brian Kelly’s Notre Dame teams are 3-0 in green jerseys. The last time was in 2015, when the Irish beat Boston College at Fenway Park, 19-6. The unis from that game were newer looking, and they look a bit similar to the ones ND will wear against the Noles. Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesThe green is a cool tradition that’s been part of ND’s history for years.Per The Glaze Page’s ND uniform history, ND has worn green jerseys at one point or another in 45 different years, dating back to the 1920s. “To me, the green jerseys are actually really cool and give the team a retro Joe Montana vibe,” lifelong ND fan Jessica Smetana of Sports Illustrated said. But the jersey color is secondary to the results. “I truly do not care, as long as they win.”

Last night’s prime-time game against the Lions was supposed to be the 2018 version of “on to Cincinnati.” And now the Patriots are on to Miami.For the second straight Sunday Detroit Lions Womens T-Shirt , the Patriots have lost by 10 or more points. It’s the first time the Patriots have had back-to-back losses of that magnitude since 2002.“I don’t really care anything about any other year, or any other team, or any other month or anything else,” coach Bill Belichick told reporters on Monday regarding the question of putting a loss behind him. “We’ve just got to take a look at the situation we’re in right now and figure out how to improve it. That’s what we’ll try to do.”They have their work cut out for them. The Dolphins come to Gillette Stadium on Sunday, looking for their first win there since the Wildcat game of 2008. A loss by the home team also would result in the first Patriots three-game losing streak since a 3-0 start in 2002 became 3-4.“I feel pretty sure that everybody that participated in the game — player or coach — feels like they could’ve done a better job,” Belichick said regarding Sunday night’s loss to the Lions and former New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. “I certainly feel that way. I know every member of the coaching staff feels that way. I talked to quite a few of the players after the game and they all feel that way, too. We just have to go back to work and find a way to all do a better job than that.”It may be much easier said that done. The Patriots simply don’t seem to have the talent that they need to compete with quality opponents Detroit Lions Hats , which means that scheme and effort and other things related to knowing what needs to be done won’t matter if they simply can’t physically do it.Tuesday open thread: Grade the Robert Ayers signing A month ago, the Detroit Lions added Ricky Jean Francois to the team just before they opened for training camp. At the time, the move was considered fairly minor. While the Lions certainly needed help at defensive tackle, Francois was a guy that has played for several different teams over the past few years, and was considered on the decline at 31 years old.But Francois has looked five years younger in camp. He quickly assumed a starting role with the team, and has been one of the best players throughout the preseason. Throw in his desire to teach Matt Patricia’s defensive scheme to his peers, and Francois has turned out to be one of the most important additions the team has made this offseason.But on Monday Detroit Lions Womens Hoodie , the Lions made another potentially big move. They added another veteran defensive lineman in Robert Ayers, and boy do they need the help. Having amassed just one sack in the preseason, it was abundantly clear that the Lions’ pass rush was in dire need of some change.So today’s Question of the Day is:What grade do you give the Robert Ayers signing?My answer: While it’s tough to give this addition a grade without knowing the exact contract terms—all we know is that it is a one-year deal per ESPN’s Adam Schefter—I’m going to give this move a B+ based on the talent of the soon-to-be 33 year old. Ayers’ statistics have been underwhelming for the past couple years. In his past 24 games, he only has 8.5 sacks.But by all means, those stats are fairly misleading. Ayers has been one of the most consistent pass rushers over the past two years, consistently helping the Buccaneers bring pressure from the edge. Just take it from Pro Football Focus’ Brett Whitefield:Admittedly, Ayers has had the benefit of playing alongside the likes of Gerald McCoy in Tampa and Jonathan Hankins and Jason Pierre Paul in New York—players much better than the teammates he’ll have in Detroit—but Ayers has proven he can bring the heat on his own Womens Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys , too.At this point in time, I’m not expecting Ayers to suddenly turn the Lions’ pass rush into a strength or anything that drastic, but it’s a clear upgrade of what the Lions had at defensive end, and that’s not very easy to come by at this point in the offseason. Your turn.

The New England Patriots travel to Buffalo for Monday night for a primetime showdown against the Buffalo Bills. Brady enters Monday night’s game with a 28-3 career record against the Bills according to Pro Football Reference Youth Darius Slay Jr Jersey , with a touchdown to interception ration of 68:22. The Patriots started the season 1-2, including a primetime pummeling at the hands of the Lions, but have since turned it around to enter this game at 5-2. They look to extend their hot streak and it shouldn’t be a challenge given the current situation of the Bills. The defense has been stellar under head coach Sean McDermott, but the offense continues to search for answers. Bills first-round pick Josh Allen has both struggled and dealt with injuries. In his absence Womens Michael Roberts Jersey , backup Nathan Peterman has been as incompetent as everyone assumed he was after his 5-interception first half in his lone start from last season. That has forced the team to resort to journeyman and longtime backup quarterback Derek Anderson, who looks to give the Bills offense some semblance of direction and leadership to salvage their season. Do the Bills have a chance? How many points will the Pats offense put up against a tough Bills defense? Will said defense be enough to keep Buffalo afloat? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.Jamal Agnew injury update: Detroit Lions preparing for long-term injury It appears the fears of a long-term injury to Detroit Lions punt returner Jamal Agnew were not hasty. On Tuesday, special teams coordinator Joe Marciano told reporters that the team was in the beginning stages of preparing a long-term replacement for Agnew as the team’s punt returner: Agnew was injured in the final quarter of Sunday’s game against the Packers when his knee bent awkwardly while tumbling towards the end zone. He was carted off after getting some help off the field. Former NFL doctor David J. Chao believes the video of the injury suggests he may have suffered a torn ACL, but the video Youth Marvin Jones Jr Jersey , he admits, is inconclusive. It’s interesting that Marciano suggests Agnew’s replacement will be an internal choice. The Lions could turn to Golden Tate on punt returns, as the veteran receiver has averaged 10.7 yards per return on 90 career punt returns. The Lions could also use Brandon Powell or Ameer Abdullah on returns. Abdullah was active for the first time this past Sunday and quickly assumed kick returning duties from Agnew. He has yet to log a punt return in his NFL career, however. You’d have to go back to his sophomore year at Nebraska to find his last punt return—way back in 2012. But the Lions won’t need to just replace Agnew on special teams. The All Pro punt returner was just starting to emerge as an option for the Lions’ nickel cornerback spot. Agnew played in at least 10 defensive snaps in all five games this year Womens Taylor Decker Jersey , including 44 against the Patriots. With injuries mounting up in the secondary—Teez Tabor left Sunday’s game, while Quandre Diggs played with a cast, and Tavon Wilson missed the game entirely—don’t be surprised to see the Lions make an addition to the back end of the roster.

BOSTON (AP) Bruins forward Brad Marchand has used the past few days since his team was eliminated in the second round in five games by the Tampa Bay Lightning to reflect on his role in the loss.Marchand drew national attention and a reprimand from the NHL after he was caught licking the face of Lightning forward Ryan Callahan during a confrontation in the Lightning’s 4-3 overtime Game 4 win that pushed the Bruins to the brink of elimination.For Marchand Adidas Adam Clendening Jersey , who scored 34 goals during the regular season and represented the Bruins at the All-Star Game, the licking incident added to his list of infractions. He has been suspended by the NHL six times and fined three.Now Marchand is thinking about cleaning up his act.”After having a couple days kind of looking back on the year and seeing what’s happened the last few days I guess, with all the media and everything, I think the biggest thing for me now is to really take a pretty hard look in the mirror and realize the actions, some of the things that I’m doing, have much bigger consequences,” Marchand said during the Bruins’ breakup day at the Warrior Ice Arena on Wednesday.”Especially the last thing I ever want to do is kind of bring the embarrassment on my teammates and the organization that it did. I have to be a lot better. I know I’ve said that in the past, but I think that that’s got to be the thing that I really work on the most.”I think I’ve gotten my game into a pretty decent spot, but I got some character things and things that I’ve done that clearly need some fixing.”The Bruins may not have to change much despite coming up short in their quest for their first Stanley Cup since 2011. They won 50 games for the 10th time in franchise history and finished second in the Eastern Conference, one point behind Tampa Bay.They went 14-0-4 from Dec. 16 to Jan. 25, which was their longest point streak since they went 18 games (13 wins Adidas Riley Nash Jersey , five ties) without a loss from Dec. 28, 1968 to Feb. 5, 1969 and tied for the second-longest point streak in team history.One year after losing in the first round of the playoffs to the Ottawa Senators, the Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games in the first round and advanced to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2014.They accomplished this while losing 304 regular-season man games to injury and integrating five rookies to the lineup.”We started with some injuries as you saw. … But then we got most of our guys back and we started playing with a full lineup and it showed on the ice. We were slowly and surely climbing the standings,” Bruins captain Zdeno Chara said.”We faced some challenges about three-fourths into season again with some injuries, still we had guys filling the gaps and the roles and we kept finding ways to win games. So that’s very positive about this team and resiliency and never-give-up attitude.”Many Bruins players were still coming to terms with being eliminated.Several others, including Patrice Bergeron (groin), David Backes (concussion), Torey Krug (fractured ankle) and Marchand (groin), were dealing with injuries as often happens with Cup contending teams this far into the playoffs.But to a man they were confident that there are better things ahead for the Bruins, who have seven unrestricted free agents among the 26 players that finished the season on their roster.”I think the thing that we’re excited about next year is we have a lot of the team returning Adidas Anthony Duclair Jersey , which is huge. It was a big learning experience for the young guys that came in,” Marchand said.”A lot of highs and lows so it should be a learning experience for them, and same with us (the veterans), we can always draw a lot from each and every year. … So hopefully we can all bring the benefits from this season into next year and be even better.”— BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Flames rookie goalie David Rittich cared little about missing out on his first career shutout bid with 18 seconds left.The first 25 shots he stopped mattered more – and Calgary snapping a four-game skid to gain ground in a tightly contested Western Conference playoff race with a 5-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night.”How we get the two points, that’s more important right now,” said Rittich, who bounced back after a six-game stretch during which he went 1-4-1 and allowed 24 goals.”Yeah, it’s big for me right now,” he added. ”I had a couple, I’m not sure if it was bad Adidas Martin Hanzal Jersey , but the scores were terrible. Yeah, it’s a nice comeback.”Rittich’s only blemish was allowing Casey Nelson’s goal in the closing moments.Otherwise, Sam Bennett, Mark Jankowski and Mark Giordano each had a goal and an assist, while Sean Monahan and Dougie Hamilton also scored for Calgary.Coming off a 4-3 overtime loss at Pittsburgh on Monday, the Flames improved to 1-3-1 in their past five. With 76 points, Calgary jumped into 10th place, a point ahead of idle St. Louis, and within one of Los Angeles and Colorado.The Flames won at Buffalo for just the second time in 14 trips (2-8-3 and a tie), and first time in regulation since a 3-1 win on March 15, 1996.The way Calgary dominated a game it outshot Buffalo 41-26 had coach Glen Gulutzan believing the Flames might be heating up just in time to mount a late-season playoff push.”You need traction Adidas Blake Comeau Jersey ,” he said.”Our team, when they get confident, they can get on a real good run. We’ve done it before,” Gulutzan added. ”Every little step is a big step for us.”The Flames took control in an opening period in which they outshot Buffalo 17-6.Bennett scored 5:35 in after a Sabres breakdown in front of their own net. Bennett drove to the net to collect a loose puck and snapped it over goalie Chad Johnson, who was flat on his back.Three minutes later, Bennett set up Jankowski’s goal by driving up the left wing and entering the Sabres zone. He fed a pass into the middle, where Jankowski used Nelson as a screen and snapped a 40-footer that sneaked in under Johnson’s left arm.Calgary didn’t let up during a three-goal second period.Giordano and Monahan scored 61 seconds apart to put Calgary up 4-0 with 13:59 left and chase Johnson, who finished with 18 saves.Hamilton then beat Robin Lehner with a shot inside the right post for a power-play goal with 1:21 left in the period.Buffalo squandered a chance to win three straight at home for the first time since a 4-0 run in January 2017, and came out inexplicably flat two days after a 5-3 win over Toronto.”It’s difficult to swallow,” coach Phil Housley said, by saying the Sabres failed to match the Flames intensity.”We talked about their desperation. You know Adidas Erik Condra Jersey , they’re saying these are their playoff lives, these next two games on the road,” Housley said. ”And I don’t think we respected that.”Rittich was hardly tested, though his best save came three minutes into second period, when he got his left shoulder up to stop Jason Pominville’s one-timer form the left circle during a Sabres power play.NOTES: The Sabres called up C Danny O’Regan from AHL Rochester to fill in after Kyle Criscuolo sustained upper-body injury in a 5-3 win against Toronto on Monday. O’Regan was acquired in the trade that sent Evander Kane to San Jose last week. … Flames LW Johnny Gaudreau had two assists in playing his 300th career game. … Gaudreau’s 56 assists this season are the most by a Flames player since Alex Tanguay had 59 in 2006-07. … The Flames once went 0-11 and a tie in 12 straight trips to Buffalo from March 11, 1979, when they were still in Atlanta, to Nov. 10, 1985.UP NEXTFlames: Close three-game road trip at Ottawa Senators on Friday.Sabres: At Ottawa on Thursday.—

The Detroit Lions will head down to Miami this week to face a Dolphins team with some familiar faces. Akeem Spence Nevin Lawson Jersey , whom the Lions traded away earlier this offseason, will be down there waiting, as will be reserve interior offensive lineman Wesley Johnson. But perhaps the biggest former Lions player on the Dolphins now is center Travis Swanson. A four-year starter with the Lions, Swanson was not retained by the Lions this offseason, and after a stint with the Jets, the Dolphins swooped him up in September as a backup. However, Miami’s starting center Daniel Kilgore left Week 4’s game against the Patriots with an injury and the starting job has been Swanson’s ever since. In the two-and-a-half games Swanson has played at center, he’s done pretty darn well:Swanson had an up-and-down career in Detroit, but he was never considered a horrible player, so it doesn’t come as much surprise that he’s doing well in Miami. Detroit will have an up-and-close look at him on Sunday, as Kilgore was placed on IR earlier this month.Dave Birkett revisited the question about franchise tagging Ezekiel Ansah. Obviously the move looks bad in retrospect, but Birkett looks at the other seven players franchised this year to see if the Lions are alone in their lack of production so far. Check out the top 10 plays from the Lions defense over the first five games of the season: Another day, another article suggesting the Lions should trade one of their players away. This time Cheap Kerryon Johnson Jersey , Bleacher Report’s Maurice Moton thinks Detroit should consider trading away Ameer Abdullah. Bad news for the Minnesota Vikings. Their first-round pick, cornerback Mike Hughes, tore his ACL in Sunday’s game and will be placed on IR: Hughes had two starts, one fumble recovery and one interception—a pick-six—in six games played. Too early for the draft? The Athletic’s Chris Burke put together at top 40 prospects big board for the Lions as it pertains to the 2019 NFL Draft (subscription required). Turns out adding LeGarrette Blount, using a first-round pick on an offensive lineman, and changing your offensive line coach may actually do some good:Green Bay Packers could be missing top 3 receivers vs. Lions Aaron Rodgers is the kind of quarterback that can be dangerous with just about any weapon at his disposal. He’s made careers out of guys like Jared Abbrederis, Jarrett Boykin and James Jones. But this week against the Detroit Lions, it may an even bigger challenge for Rodgers. At Thursday’s practice, Rodgers was missing his top three receivers. Green Bay has already been practicing without Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison. Cobb suffered a hamstring injury in prior to last week’s game against the Bills, and Allison has been in concussion protocol after suffering a brain injury last week. But during Wednesday’s practice, their No. 1 receiver, Davante Adams, suffered a calf injury and couldn’t finish the session T.J. Lang Jersey , according to head coach Mike McCarthy. He didn’t practice Thursday.That leaves Green Bay’s receiving corps completely decimated. Their top three receivers? All rookies: fourth-rounder J’Mon Moore, fifth-rounder Marquez Valdes-Scantling and sixth-rounder Equanimeous St. Brown. Together, the three have combined for a total of two catches for 41 yards—all of which came from Valdes-Scantling. To make matters even worse, tight end Jimmy Graham missed Wednesday’s practice. He did return on Thursday, but the Packers tight end has been dealing with a knee injury for a couple weeks now. Last week, hobbled by the knee injury, Graham managed just three catches for 21 yards and a score. Interestingly enough, Rodgers may be facing off against a beaten up secondary. Cornerback Quandre Diggs has been sporting a cast on his left hand at practice all week, Nevin Lawson was not at Thursday’s practice, and Tavon Wilson couldn’t finish last week’s game with a back injury.We’ve seen Rodgers work his devil magic before, and he’ll likely have to do it again if Green Bay wants to stay above .500.

Cheap Nike Air Max Clearance .Everybody but him.Messi is neither confirming nor denying a report in sports newspaper Marca that the player has told Barcelona that he does not intend to renew his contract.The players representatives said Monday that Messi would not be making any comments related to the story.Marca claimed that Messi told the club about his alleged decision in July, not long after he and his father were convicted of defrauding Spanish tax authorities -- something that Marca said played a major role in the players decision-making process. Messi and his father have denied any wrongdoing and said they would appeal.Barcelona did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Some publications in Barcelona challenged the story by the Madrid-based Marca. The daily denied that its report came in retaliation for Messi not showing up at a recent awards ceremony organized by the newspaper.The 29-year-old Messi arrived at Barcelona as a teenager from Argentina, and has never publicly talked about being unhappy at the club.The five-time player of the year has become the face of the Catalan club and has four Champions League titles and eight Spanish league triumphs.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- The Latest from the IOC meeting on Russias participation at the Rio Games (all times local):00:55 a.m.International Olympic Committee vice president John Coates says the IOCs decision not to ban all Russian athletes from the Rio Games reflected the need to be fair to athletes who hadnt turned to doping.Coates spent three days advising the IOC on the legal aspects of any decision relating to Russian sanctions for the games in Rio de Janeiro and explained the rationale in a statement released by the Australian Olympic Committee.We were mindful of the need for justice for clean athletes, said Coates, who is president of the Australian committee. We did not want to penalize athletes who are clean with a collective ban and, therefore, keeping them out of the games.The AOC endorsed the decision not to apply a blanket ban on all Russian athletes, with team leader Kitty Chiller saying The IOC has set down a very strict criteria and the Russians still need to clear the high hurdles to be able to participate in Rio.Chiller said she was advising Australian Olympians not to be concerned about the decision.I will be urging them to concentrate on their own performances, and wipe Russia from their mindset, she said.---00:45 a.m.The World Anti-Doping Agency is concerned that Russian whistleblower Yulia Stepanova wont be allowed to compete in Rio de Janeiro after courageously exposing the single biggest doping scandal of all time.Evidence of widespread doping in Russian track and field was provided by 800-meter runner Stepanova, who hoped to compete in Rio as an independent athlete.The IOC, however, ruled Sunday that her past doping ban means she cannot race at the Olympics next month.WADA director general Olivier Niggli says the organization is very concerned by the message that this sends whistleblowers for the future.---00:40 a.m.The World Anti-Doping Agency is disappointed that Olympics leaders have rejected their plea to ban Russia from the Rio Games.WADAs investigators had found further evidence that dope-testing in Russia has been manipulated by official bodies.But the International Olympic Committee decided against a blanket ban on Russians competing in the Rio Games next month, allowing each sport to decide on participation.WADA President Craig Reedie says the organization is disappointed that the IOC did not heed WADAs executive committee recommendations after investigators exposed, beyond a reasonable doubt, a state-run doping program in Russia that seriously undermines the principles of clean sport.---10:50 p.m.The umbrella organization representing national anti-doping agencies is disappointed that Olympic leaders did not ban Russia completely from the Rio de Janeiro Games.The International Olympic Committee has instead left it to individual sports to decide whether they want to exclude Russians from next months event.Joseph de Pencier, chief executive of the 59-member Institute of National Anti-Doping Organisations, says the IOC failed to confront forcefully the findings of evidence of state-sponsored doping in Russia corrupting the Russian sport system.Pencier has also rebuked the IOC for not finding a way to allow doping whistleblower Yuliya Stepanova who has been treated disgracefully by Russia to compete in Rio.The IOC rejected an application by the 800-meter runner who helped to expose the doping scandal to compete under a neutral flag at the games because she has been previously banned for doping.Pencier says it is a sad day for clean sport.---10:45 p.m.Russia looks set to send a five-rider team to equestrian events at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.International Equestrian Federation President Ingmar De Vos says there is no indication of any organized doping malpractices within the Russian equestrian delegation.Russia has qualified three rider and horse pairings in eventing, for team and individual competitions in Rio, and two pairings in dressage.No Russian equestrian cases were noted last Monday in a World Anti-Doping Agency inquiry report which suggested hundreds of covered-up positive tests were made to disappear in a state-backed doping program from 2011 to 2015.On Sunday, the IOC executive board asked Olympic sports federations to analyze the doping record of each athlete qualified to compete in Rio before their entry can be approved.De Vos says in a statement as long as there is no indication against any specific athlete I see absolutely no reason why the Russian equestrian athletes should not compete at Rio.---10:15 p.m.World marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe has accused Olympic leaders of weakness in the fight against doping and not doing enough to protect clean athletes.Radcliffe says it is unfair of the International Olympic Committee to leave it to individual sports to decide whether or not Russians should be allowed to compete in Rio de Janeiro.A truly strong message for clean sport would have been to ban all those who have been caught cheating, Radcliffe said in a statement posted on Twitter. In short, it does not send the clear message it could have done that doping and cheating in all Olympic sport will never be tolerated.The Briton called the Olympic bodys ruling a sad day for clean sport. A decision the shows that the IOCs primary concern is not to protect the clean athletes.The IOC is banning any Russian who has previously served a doping ban from Rio next month.But Radcliffe said this cannot fairly be only Russian athletes.---10:10 p.m.The leader of New Zealands anti-doping movement says the IOCs decision not to impose a total ban on Russian athletes at the Rio Games shows a lack of will to back the core principles of their organization with hard decisions.Graeme Steel also said placing international federations in charge of deciding which athletes can participate in Rio puts them in a conflicted position, because declaring them ineligible would infer that their own anti-doping programs arent up to par.He said the federations have neither the time nor the resources to make those decisions in a consistent way.---9:45 p.m.The head of cyclings ruling body, Brian Cookson, welcomed the IOCs decision to reject a blanket ban on the Russian team.Speaking with Sky TV, Cookson said the UCI will continue to look at the situation, case by case, before deciding which athletes can compete in Rio.I think well have to continue our detailed analysis of the situation, Cookson said. Which Russian rider has been selected for the Rio Olympics, who is in the registered testing pool, the biological passport, and so on. Frankly, I think I favor an individual approach rather than a blanket ban. I think that Russians cyclists are tested just as frequently as other nationalities.While rejecting a blanket ban on the Russian team, the IOC said Russia cannot send any athletes who have been sanctioned for doping, even if the sanction had been served.That decision is likely to rule out Ilnur Zakarin, who won a stage during the Tour de France which ended Sunday, and who served a two-year ban after testing positive for the anabolic steroid methandienone in 2009.---8:45 p.m.The International Judo Federation, whose honorary president is Russias President Vladimir Putin, has detailed its anti-doping testing before the Rio de Janeiro Games.The IJF says in a statement that it has already tested 84 percent of the 389 athletes from 136 countries who are qualified to compete in Rio.It made no mention of 11 places Russian judokas have in the lineup.The IOC on Sunday agreed detailed eligibility criteria for all Russian athletes that each Olympic sports governing body must oversee less than two weeks before the opening ceremony.Any Russian athlete or sports federation implicated in an ongoing World Anti-Doping Agency inquiry into state-orchestrated doping must be refused entry, the IOC said.The WADA report said eight positive tests in Russian judo were made to disappear in the state doping program since 2011.The IJFs links to Russia include a close ally of Putin, Arkady Rotenberg, sitting on its executive committee.---7:45 p.m.The International Tennis Federation says it expects Russias eight-player Olympic tennis team to compete at the games in Rio de Janeiro.The ITFs announcement came after the International Olympic Committee allowed individual sports to decide whether to allow Russians at the games. The IOC said it was imposing tough eligibility conditions, including proof of reliable anti-doping testing.The federation says the eight Russian tennis players who have been nominated to compete in Rio have been subject to a rigorous anti-doping testing programme outside Russia.It added that the ITF believes that this is sufficient for the eight Russian tennis players to meet the relevant requirement of todays decision of the IOC executive board.But the ITF added it will seek confirmation from the World Anti-Doping Agency that none of those players or the Russian Tennis Federation were implicated in the McLaren reeport. Cheap Wholesale Air Max Shoes. The report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren accused Russia of running a state-sponsored doping and cover-up program.---7:20 p.m.The body representing the 204 national Olympic committees has welcomed the IOCs decision not to impose a blanket ban on Russians from the Rio de Janeiro Games.The International Olympic Committees executive board decided to let individual sports federations decide which Russians should be eligible, following allegations of state-sponsored cheating by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren.Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah of Kuwait, president of the Association of National Olympic Committees, says the allegations made in the McLaren report were shocking and directly threaten the integrity of sport.But Sheikh Ahmad believes banning the entire Russian team would have unfairly punished many clean athletes.He endorsed the IOCs decision to give international federations responsibility to ensure clean competitions in their sports at Rio 2016.---7:05 p.m.Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva has welcomed the International Olympic Committees decision to bar a renowned Russian doping whistleblower from competing at the games.The IOC said 800-meter Yulia Stepanova, who along with her husband provided evidence of widespread doping in Russian track and field, could not race in Rio because she once served a doping ban.Isinbayeva, who herself has been prevented from going to Rio as part of a blanket ban on the Russian track team, tells Russias R-Sport agency that at least one wise decision on track and field has been taken in Stepanovas case.Isinbayeva also called for Stepanova to be banned for life.Stepanova and her husband left Russia in 2014 citing fears for their safety and have been branded traitors by many Russian fans and officials.---6:45 p.m.Before the IOC made its ruling, Russias top Olympic official had warned the International Olympic Committee that its members would be bowing to geopolitical pressure if they banned Russia from next months games in Rio de Janeiro.In the text of Russian Olympic Committee president Alexander Zhukovs speech to the board, he compares a blanket ban on all Russian athletes to catching a criminal and then placing his family, friends and acquaintances behind bars just because they knew the criminal or they live in the same town.Calls to ban the entire Russian team went beyond the bounds of sport, Zhukov said, adding I call on you not to become hostages of geopolitical pressure.---6:10 p.m.Russian Olympic Committee head Alexander Zhukov says it will not appeal against an IOC rule to bar Russian athletes who previously served doping bans from competing at the Rio de Janeiro Games.Zhukov, who attended Sundays telephone conference of the IOC executive board, says he does not agree with the rule agreed just 12 days before the opening ceremony.Still, he says we dont have time enough to do such a thing like appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.A previous CAS verdict suggests the IOC rule could be overturned.In 2011, a CAS panel declared invalid the IOCs so-called Osaka Rule, which sought to bar athletes from the next Olympic Games if they served a ban for doping of at least six months.Zhukov does not rule out any Russian athlete filing an urgent appeal as an individual because all of them can go to CAS.---6:05 p.m.Russia is likely to be without some of its top athletes at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro thanks to an International Olympic Committee rule prohibiting former dopers from competing.While rejecting a blanket ban on the Russian team, the IOC said Russia cannot send any athlete who has ever been sanctioned for doping, even if he or she has served the sanction.That appears to rule out swimmer Yulia Efimova, the world champion in the 100-meter breaststroke, 2012 Olympic silver medal-winning weightlifter Tatyana Kashirina and two-time Olympic bronze medal-winning cyclist Olga Zabelinskaya.All three have previously served a doping ban.---5:45 p.m.The leader of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says the IOC refused to take decisive leadership by stopping short of a complete Russian ban at the Olympics.Travis Tygart says the decision and the confusing mess left in its wake is a significant blow to the rights of clean athletes.Tygart also called the decision to refuse Yulia Stepanova entry into the games incomprehensible -- and a move that will undoubtedly deter whistleblowers in the future from coming forward.---5:20 p.m.IOC President Thomas Bach has defended the decision not to ban all Russians from the Olympics by insisting clean athletes should not be punished.Bach says an athlete should not suffer and should not be sanctioned for a system in which he was not implicated.The International Olympic Committee is leaving it up to international sports federations to decide which Russian athletes can compete in Rio de Janeiro next month.Bach accepted that the decision might not please everybody.But speaking on a media call, Bach added that this is not about expectations -- this is about doing justice to clean athletes all over the world.---5 p.m.The Russian Sports Minister says that the majority of Russias team complies with International Olympic Committee criteria on doping and will be able to compete in Rio.The IOC set extra criteria for Russian athletes when ruling out a complete ban. Athletes who have previously served doping bans will not be eligible, while international federations will also analyze an athletes testing history.Vitaly Mutko says the criteria are very tough, but thats a kind of challenge for our team... Im sure the majority of our team will comply.Around 80 percent of the Russian team regularly undergoes international testing of the kind specified in the IOC criteria, he adds.Mutko says he accepts the criteria but adds it is not fair that former dopers from other countries can compete.---3:55 p.m.The IOC has decided against a complete ban on Russian athletes from the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.The International Olympic Committee says it is leaving it up to global federations to decide which Russian athletes to accept in their sports.The IOC says it will deny entry of Russian athletes who do not meet the requirements set out for the federations.The IOC says the federations have the authority, under their own rules, to exclude Russian teams as a whole from their sports.--2:20 p.m.Several Russian TV networks are joined by news crews for broadcasters from around the globe awaiting the IOC decision.Around 25 media are gathered at the front door of the IOCs temporary premises in Lausanne, about 400 meters from the Olympic Museum.Most are focused on finding shade from the 25-degree (77 Fahrenheit) sunshine as the IOCs president, Thomas Bach, leads a conference call of his executive board. It will consider a ban on Russian athletes from the Rio de Janeiro Games that open in 12 days time.Bach is not expected to meet with reporters after the meeting.Russian broadcasters expect IOC member Alexander Zhukov to emerge to update TV crews.Reporters from Brazilian, Chinese and Japanese broadcasters are among the group.---12:59 p.m.Russia is waiting to find out whether its entire team will be excluded from next months Olympics over the countrys doping scandal.Russia has already been handed a doping punishment when its track and field team lost an appeal against a ban on Thursday.Earlier interim IOC measures announced Tuesday included urging winter sports federations to move their competitions out of Russia this season, in response to allegations that Russian state officials hid hundreds of failed drug tests over several years and swapped samples from doped athletes for clean ones during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.Russia has admitted some doping violations by its athletes and coaches, but still denies that the government was involved. State media has painted the issue as a U.S.-led political vendetta.---12:37 p.m.Olympic leaders are meeting to consider whether to impose a total ban on Russian athletes from the Rio de Janeiro Games because of state-sponsored doping.The International Olympic Committees ruling executive board is meeting Sunday via teleconference to decide on sanctions following new allegations of a government-backed doping program involving Russian athletes in summer and winter sports.Russias track and field athletes have already been banned by the IAAF, the sports governing body, a decision that was upheld Thursday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.The World Anti-Doping agency and other anti-doping bodies have recommended a ban on Russias entire team.The IOC has said it would seek a balance between collective punishment and individual justice.Short of a complete ban, the IOC could let individual sports federations decide whether to allow Russian athletes in their events. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

I can do all of the running so I think that will definitely help.Despite the nagging issue, Daniel still managed 24 of a possible 26 games in a breakout season in which he finished second to Sydneys Callum Mills in the AFLs Rising Star award.The 20-year-old spent a large portion of his off-season in home town Adelaide where the historic grand final win over Sydney was a hot topic of discussion with family and friends.But he says the enormity of winning the clubs second premiership flag after a 62-year wait only really hit home when he returned this week to Whitten Oval.I dont think I really thought about it too much until we got back into the swing of things, he said.It feels like its almost coming to life more now that were back together for pre-season.As much as well get flogged by the coaches, (the premiership win) definitely makes pre-season a lot more enjoyable.The first-to-fourth-year Bulldogs will be joined by the rest of the squad next week but, even at this early stage, Daniel can already sense one grand final win wont be enough to satisfy the group.Were going to work as hard, if not harder, than we did last year, he said.We dont know what the future holds but well be working as hard as we possibly can to achieve that again.Theres no better feeling than holding that cup up ... it was amazing.

He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat.Mercedes could face their closest qualifying battle of the season so far at the Spanish GP on Saturday after Ferrari closed the gap around Barcelona in final practice. Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton kept Mercedes first and second on the timesheet, but Sebastian Vettel raised the prospect of a closer fight for the front row by lapping just 0.147 seconds adrift of the world champions pace.Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne had ramped up the scrutiny on his already under-pressure team before the weekend by saying he wants them to start winning in Spain and Vettels P3 pace suggests F1s top two teams may be more equally matched this weekend. For the second successive session, Rosberg set the pace - and may have gone quicker than his 1:23.078 had he not been forced to abort his second soft-tyre run when a sensor problem struck on his W07.Despite completing his second run, Hamilton was unable to topple his team-mate again - despite setting quicker times in the first two sectors of the lap.Vote: Which team has the best driver line-up?In fact, Vettel ended the session with the fastest times in sectors one and two, with Rosbergs sector three pace - where the Mercedes was half a second quicker than the Ferrari - making the difference. Revitalised Red Bull were half a second further adrift and, for the first time since his arrival at the senior team, Max Verstappen outpaced Daniel Ricciardo.The Dutchman went a tenth quicker to take fourth, with Ricciardo losing time with a wide moment at Turn Nine. Kimi Raikkonen was only sixth in the second Ferrari, ahead of Williams Valtteri Bottas.After concentrating on a heavier-fuel programme on his first day back at Toro Rosso, Daniil Kvyat was their lead runner in P3 for the first time, finishing a promising ninth for the Red Bull junior team.Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso suggested McLaren could have their best shot at a long-awaited Q3 breakthrough by finishing 10th, with the Spaniard not carrying the intricate front wing which the team tested on Friday. Jenson Button briefly ran the new part again in final practice, before it was taken off again. The Briton, who endured a difficult opening day, finished down in 15th.

TOKYO -- Former champions Kei Nishikori and Tomas Berdych lost at the Japan Open on Wednesday. China Basketball Jerseys .Top-seeded Nishikori was forced to retire with a left glute problem in the first set of his second-round match against Joao Sousa.Third-seeded Berdych fell to Gilles Muller of Luxembourh 7-6 (7), 6-1 in the first round.Nishikori was 3-0 up when he received medical treatment on his left glute while lying face down on the court for several minutes.The 2012 and 2014 champ served two weak double faults in the next game, and appeared in pain when chasing the ball. He held serve, but lost the next three games before calling a halt while leading 4-3 in his first matchup with Sousa.Nishikori, ranked No. 5, saw a doctor after the match, and will have a scan on Thursday.Sousa moved on to face fifth-seeded David Goffin, after the Belgian beat Jiri Vesely 6-3, 7-5.Also, fourth-seeded Marin Cilic rallied to defeat Spanish baseliner Fernando Verdasco 4-6, 7-5, 7-5.Berdych captured his first ATP title of the season when he retained his Shenzhen Open crown in China on Sunday, but his first-round defeat in Tokyo dented his bid for the ATP Finals. He lies ninth in the race for the elite eight-man finals, which hes played for the last six years.A weary Berdych, the 2008 champ, squandered three break points in the sixth game then failed to convert a set-point in the first tiebreaker.After falling 3-0 behind in the second set, the Czech called for a trainer to treat a left glute complaint, and was unable to stop Muller, who fired 12 aces.At the beginning of the second set, my body gave me a bit of a sign Ive been playing a little too much tennis in the last couple of weeks, Berdych said.Muller, a two-time finalist this year, next faces Marcos Baghdatis.Berdych and Muller believed Maria Sharapova was lucky to have her two-year doping ban reduced to 15 months.Anyone who gives a positive test should get punished. Should they get a reduction? I dont think so, in general, Muller said. It shows other sportsmen that, at the end of the day, the punishment is not going to be that big.Berdych said players knew they had to be very careful about any medications.Every single time I have to take something, I check many times with many different people, he said.At the end, you are the player, you are the athlete, and you are the one whos going to be tested. I always check whatever I take because Im the one who will go for the (doping) control.Sharapova received a little more sympathy from Cilic, who has been through the same process as Sharapova. In 2013, he had a nine-month doping ban reduced to four months.I was not treated fairly at all, Cilic said. In my case the system wasnt wrong, the people were wrong. Thats behind me. It went to the CAS -- its quite fair whatever they say in most of their decisions. But its tough to comment on these things because every case is different and individual. Cheap Basketball Hoodies . The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Jerseys Basketball China . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. http://www.cheapjerseysnbaoutlet.com/ .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. The Memphis Grizzlies have wanted Chandler Parsons since the forward knocked down an NBA-record 10 3-pointers in a half against them in January 2014. Now, they finally have the outside shooter theyve tried -- and failed -- to land for so many years.The Grizzlies also have someone eager to lure more top talent to Tennessee.Being the first big-name free agent to come here, I think thats special, and I want to be a trendsetter here, Parsons said Friday. Im going to work extremely hard to be the best basketball player I can be. But ... next summer you best believe Im going to be with him (general manager Chris Wallace) recruiting more talent to Memphis.The Grizzlies have brought big names to town trying to add a shooting threat to center Marc Gasol, forward Zach Randolph, defensive whiz Tony Allen and point guard Mike Conley. But Tayshaun Prince, Mike Miller on his second stint with the Grizzlies, and most recently Vince Carter came to Memphis later in their careers.Parsons, introduced Friday at a news conference, is 27 and shot 41.4 percent beyond the arc last season. He also has averaged 14.3 points in his five seasons. He chose Memphis over Portland once free agency opened July 1, agreeing to a four-year, $94 million deal that was quickly followed by Conleys reaching agreement on a five-year deal worth $153 million as part of a nearly $250 million spending spree by the Grizzlies.This is the guy weve been seeking for a number of years, Wallace said. He fits the description for that perimeter star to a T that weve been searching so aggressively for so many years, and we think hes got even more improvement in his bag of tricks.Memphis needed the big moves after some challenges ovver the past few months. Basketball Jerseys China. Gasol needed surgery on his right foot in February, and Achilles tendinitis ended Conleys season in early March. Then the Grizzlies unexpectedly fired coach Dave Joerger on May 7 after only three seasons, and he quickly was hired by Sacramento.That opened up the job for David Fizdale, the former Miami Heat assistant who already had met Parsons years ago when coaching the NBAs rookie-sophomore game. Fizdale also hired J.B. Bickerstaff, an assistant in Houston, where Parsons played for three seasons, as his associate head coach, and Nick Van Exel, who worked in Dallas the past two seasons, as an assistant.I trust his coaching staff with my life, Parsons said.Parsons said he already knew about Memphis thanks to former Florida teammate Nick Calathes, and former Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee is one of his best friends. The combination made landing Parsons very easy when they met in Los Angeles, and he committed before Wallace and Fizdale left.He also gave Memphis a yes before Conley committed, but Parsons said they had been texting. Parsons says he is looking forward to playing with the point guard and for a team featuring what he believes is one of the best starting lineups in the NBA. Memphis has reached the playoffs six straight seasons, a streak second only to San Antonio (19) and Atlanta (9) in the league.Just looking at this core and what theyve established here over the years, like I said, I wanted to be a part of that, Parsons said. I think my game, my style of play fits perfectly with what theyre doing here. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

Apologies to Dana Evans, who headlines Louisvilles No. Cheap Jordan 12 Real . 1 class heading into the NCAAs early signing period for womens basketball. Likewise to Duke, which is expected to welcome an outstanding 2017 recruiting class. And even to Delaware, which is expected to sign the tallest Top 100 recruit in 6-foot-5 Katherine Cain. But the most significant D in this years A-to-Z guide to signing week is drama.Heading into a week that normally features pens going to predictable places, four of the top five prospects in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100 and six of the top 10 remain undeclared.So while we wait to find out where No. 1 Megan Walker, No. 2 Evina Westbrook, No. 3 Rellah Boothe, No. 5 Sidney Cooks, No. 6 Chennedy Carter and No. 10 Michaela Onyenwere are mailing their letters, we present you with 26 of our own, A to Z:A: ACC. Starting with Louisville at No. 1, six of the top 20 recruiting classes heading into the early signing period are in the ACC. Following the Cardinals are Syracuse at No. 6, Duke (8), Miami (15), Georgia Tech (18) and Notre Dame (19). The Pac-12 and SEC are tied for second with five each in the top 20.B: Baylor. One of just two Big 12 teams ranked in the top 20, the Bears are following up an outstanding 2016 recruiting class with another gem in 2017. Coach Kim Mulkey has verbals from four players, including three in the top 100. Deauzya Richards, a 6-1 guard ranked 16th; Alexis Morris, a 5-6 point guard ranked 18th; and Cara Ursin, a 5-6 point guard ranked 64th, are expected to sign national letters of intent this week.C: Chasity Patterson. Texas has dibs on the lone player in the top five who has announced her destination. Chaz Patterson, a 5-6 point guard and the No. 4 prospect in the country, is simply electric. Shes got a quick release and long range. If that sounds like a dangerous combination, its because it is. As a junior at North Shore (Houston), Patterson averaged 24.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 5.2 steals per game.D: Since weve set up the drama up top, well slide Duke -- and dang! -- into this spot. As in Dang, what a class, Duke! The Blue Devils are expected to get four national letters of intent this week from four VIPs. The first is Jade Williams, a 6-4 forward, the No. 13 prospect in the class and a bronze medalist with Team USA in 2015. Next up is Mikayla Boykin, a 5-9 guard who could be ranked higher than 20th if not for two knee injuries. Then theres Madison Treece, a 6-3 post player who gets things done in the paint. Finally, theres Jayda Adams, a former teammate of UConn sophomore Katie Lou Samuelsons and the current sister of USC senior Jordan Adams. If youre looking for coach Joanne P. McCallie, shell be camped out by the mailbox.E: Evina Westbrook. Whos it going to be? The No. 2 prospect in the nation lists her finalists as Maryland, Notre Dame, Oregon State, USC and Tennessee. Westbrook is keeping us in suspense for the first day of the early signing period. She is scheduled to announce her decision Thursday. Heres what we know: The 6-foot guard from South Salem (Oregon) has a sweet shot and uncanny court awareness. Somebody is going to be celebrating come Thursday. Big time.F: Foreign flavor. And theres a lot. Starting with Chantel Horvat, a 6-1 guard from Australia and the No. 15 prospect in the class, who is headed to sunny UCLA. There are four other international players ranked among the top 50 prospects: Digna Strautmane (Syracuse), Julia Reisigerova (undeclared), Hailey Brown (Michigan) and Louise Forsyth (Gonzaga).G: Gamecocks. Coach Dawn Staleys Gamecocks are residing right near the top of all the preseason polls. Ditto for her 2017 recruiting class. Its all led by Elisia Grissett, a 6-1 wing ranked 24th in the nation. Trust us when we tell you that youre going to get to know the outgoing Grissett, who prefers to go by LeLe. Also headed the Gamecocks way are LaDazhia Williams, a 6-2 forward ranked 47th; Bianca Jackson, a 5-11 wing ranked 54th; and three-star guard Haley Troup.H: Huskies. Connecticut already gets an A for its 2017 class. But an A-plus is still a possibility because the Huskies are on the short list for No. 1 Megan Walker. With a class that already includes Mikayla Coombs, a 5-foot-10 guard ranked 14th; Lexi Gordon, a 5-11 wing ranked 29th; and Andra Espinoza-Hunter, a 5-10 guard ranked 37th; the addition of a No. 1 would be truly epic.I: Irish. Speaking of epic ... Notre Dame is the only team that is still in the running for both No. 1 Megan Walker and No. 2 Evina Westbrook. Coach Muffet McGraw already is expecting letters from No. 30 Danielle Patterson and No. 90 Mikayla Vaughn. If a couple of surprises make their way to her mailbox? Lets just say there would be a whole lot of jigging going on in South Bend.J: Jackrabbits. Were talking the Long Beach Poly Jackrabbits, who have a trio of Top 100 recruits who could seal envelopes this week. Ayanna Clark, ranked 17th, has given a verbal to USC. Danae Miller, ranked 87th, is expected to sign with UC Santa Barbara. Jasmine Jones, ranked 50th, remains undeclared. Long Beach Poly isnt the only high school team with multiple Top 100 players signing this week. St. Francis (Alpharetta, Georgia) has Maya Dodson penning a letter to Stanford and Kasiyahna Kushkituah writing to Tennessee. Also, Miami Country Day stars Channise Lewis (Illinois) and Kelsey Marshall (undeclared) could be doing some higher education communication this week as well.K: Konawaena. Yup, were taking you all the way to beautiful Hawaii. Why? Its where Celena Molina resides. Shes a 5-9 three-star guard who is expected to sign with Washington State this week. Her big sister, Chanelle Molina, did pretty much the exact same thing at the exact same time a year ago. And -- who knows? -- it could be same time, same place with baby sister Cherilyn Molina next year.L: Louisville. Leading. Lindsey. Loretta. And Dana? OK, so the L theme kind of falls apart there at the end. The point is, Jeff Walz has struck again. The Cardinals coach has the No. 1 recruiting class heading into the early signing period. Lindsey Duvall, a 5-9 guard and the No. 22 prospect, is a big part of that. As is Loretta Kakala, a 6-3 post player ranked 25th. And then theres Dana Evans, the 5-6 point guard and one of just four top-10 prospects who has declared.M: Megan Walker. Consider this our drum roll: Last years No. 1 prospect, Lauren Cox, is about to debut at Baylor. The year before that it was Katie Lou Samuelson signing with UConn. In 2014 Aja Wilson waited until the spring to sign with South Carolina. In 2013, it was Mercedes Russell signing with Tennessee. Where will this years top pick land? Her finalists are Connecticut, Notre Dame and Texas. The 6-1 guard and premier prospect in the class is scheduled to explain her decision Thursday at 6 p.m. on ESPNU.N: None. The wait-to-decide epidemic is not just affecting the top 10. Theres a whole of Nones in the College column in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100. In all, 18 players have yet to declare. For those who arent math majors, thats 18 percent of the class that has yet to announce a decision. Is that a trend we see? Hate to state the obvious (again), but only time will tell.O: Oregon State. Could it be the age of the Beavers? Oregon State made its debut trip to the Final Four a year ago and landed arguably the best recruiting class in school history soon thereafter. And the good news doesnt end there. Coach Scott Rueck has landed two Top 100 recruits -- No. 27 Taya Corosdale and No. 63 Aleah Goodman -- and is in the running for a third, in-state superstar Evina Westbrook.P: If it werent for three pesky letters -- ACC -- we could be talking about the best recruiting season out West. Stanford goes into the early signing period with the second-best class in the country. UCLA is ranked ninth, USC 11th, California 12th and Oregon State 13th. An honorable mention goes to Arizona, which falls just outside the top 20 but features an incredible five-player class.Q: Quentin Hillsman. This Q is on fire. Hillsman, who guided Syracuse to a runner-up finish a year ago, is expecting his mailbox to be full of good news this week. Digna Strautmane, a versatile and agile 6-foot-2 forward who is ranked 23rd, is expected to send a letter postmarked from Latvia. Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi, a three-star 6-2 forward, is sending hers from France. Approximately 3,000 miles closer to home, Amaya Finklea-Guity, a 6-4 post player who is ranked 42nd, also is expected to sign with Syracuse. Keeping the theme of Hillsmans global domination, Nikki Oppenheimer, a 5-9 point guard from Illinois who represented Puerto Rico over the summer at the FIBA Americas U18 championships, also is expected to sign with Orange ink.R: Really, really good Rellah Boothe. Shes the No. 3 prospect, a USA Basketball gold medalist, and shes undeclared. The 6-1 forward with jaw-dropping talent plans to choose Friday night. Its apparently down to Florida, LSU, Texas and Ohio State. Think a few folks are holding their breath? No need to answer that.S: Sidney Cooks. The No. 5 prospect in the country intends to announce her decision a bit later in the signing period. The 6-4 forward from Saint Joseph Academy (Kenosha, Wisconsin) apparently is thinking Big Ten or Pac-12. Her finalists are Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Wisconsin and UCLA.T: Tennessee class. Ta-da! A year after getting shut out in the early signing period, Tennessee is back among the best. A lot of that is thanks to in-state superstar Anastasia Hayes of Riverdale (Murfreesboro, Tennessee), who is expected to sign with the Lady Vols this week. Coach Holly Warlick also will be awaiting official word(s) from Kasiyahna Kushkituah, the No. 55 prospect who has verbally committed to the Lady Vols. No. 2 Evina Westbrook, No. 10 Michaela Onyenwere and No. 21 Rennia Davis?have Tennessee listed among their finalists.U: UCLA: Coach Cori Close landed the top class in the country in 2014. Could she pull off an encore? Shes got a chance. Her three-player class, featuring two players in the Top 100, already is ranked in the top 10. But when you consider that No. 5 Sidney Cooks and No. 10 Michaela Onyenwere are both considering the Bruins, well ...V: VanDerveer. How sweet it is for coach Tara VanDerveer and Stanford. The Cardinals four-player class includes three Top 100 recruits. Point guard Kiana Williams is ranked eighth. Wing Maya Dodson is ranked 11th. Wing Estella Moschkau is ranked 44th. Forward Alyssa Jerome is a three-star prospect. Even somebody who isnt a member of Nerd Nation can see that adds up to all kinds of impressive.W: Wheres Waldo? Make that, wheres the Big Ten? A year after Maryland landed the top class in the country, you wont find any Big Ten teams ranked in the top 20 recruiting classes heading into the week. Thats not to say there arent some big-time stars headed that way -- Canadian standout Hailey Brown is expected to sign with Michigan, Jaelynn Penn is headed to Indiana and Taylor Kissinger is staying put in Nebraska -- but no team has the depth required to make the top-20 cut. Of course, the ink is far from dry. Maryland is in the running for Evina Westbrook and Ohio State is a finalist for Rellah Boothe. Sidney Cooks could wind up at Purdue, Wisconsin or either one of the Michigans.X: X factor. And not just because were suffering from a shortage of the 24th letter. Cross our hearts. Dorie Harrison has the power to truly turn the tide at Kentucky, which suffered from a rash of departures a season ago. The 6-3 post player from Nashville, Tennessee, who has battled through injuries, has both the skill and the pedigree to shine in the SEC. Her sister, Isabelle Harrison, was a standout at Tennessee. Her brother, David Harrison, had a four-year career in the NBA.Y: Yellow Jackets. MaChelle Joseph is at it again at Georgia Tech. The winningest coach in Georgia Tech womens basketball history had a winning season on the recruiting trail, landing two Top 100 prospects -- No. 51 Kierra Fletcher, a 5-9 guard; and No. 56 Daijah Jefferson, a 6-2 forward.Z: Zags. Coach Lisa Fortier and Gonzaga are rubbing elbows with some bigwigs on the recruiting trail. The class, firmly among the top 20 in the country, includes two Top 100 prospects in 6-foot Canadian guard Louise Forsyth, who is ranked 48th, and 5-11 guard Jill Townsend, ranked 97th. Twin sisters Jenn Wirth and LeeAnne Wirth, three-star forwards, also are heading Gonzagas way. Cheap Jordan Retro 12 . Numbers Game examines the deal that sees Michael Del Zotto and Kevin Klein switch places. The Predators Get: D Michael Del Zotto. Jordan Retro 12 Low Cheap . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. http://www.cheapairjordan12.com/ . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. Tim Tebow is beginning his professional baseball career at 29 years old, so the New York Mets can exercise only so much patience in seeing what they have. Its a baseball judgment they claim theyll make internally, with no preconceived notions and minimal regard for public perception.I think this will run its natural course, general manager Sandy Alderson said on a conference call Thursday. Were mindful of the fact that Tim is starting this endeavor at age 29, and theres a certain amount of realism we have to accept. But were not really thinking about that. Were thinking about the beginning of journey and not the end. So heres where Tebows baseball journey begins, with an understanding that no one really knows where it might lead:? Sept. 18: Tebow will report to the Mets instructional league team in Port St. Lucie, Forida, where hell take part in three weeks of baseball activities with much younger prospects who are also in the incipient phase of professional ball.? Fall 2016: After that, the Mets have several options available. They can send Tebow to the Arizona Fall League, where Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and so many other elite prospects have played over the years. They can continue his development with a winter league team in Latin America, or keep him in Port St. Lucie in a more structured environment with an emphasis on individual instruction.? February 2017: Tebow will head to spring training, but the Mets have made no commitments to invite him to big-league camp.? April 2017: The big step will come when Tebow joins a minor-league affiliate and rides the buses, faces changeups and curveballs, and gets his first taste of handling the failure that scouts predict will be the ultimate test for him.Given the novel nature of Tebows pursuit, the Mets are making up the rules on the fly.There is no instruction manual on how to best slot an almost-30 Heisman Trophy owner into your minor league depth chart, so theyll have to determine how aggressively they want to push him through their system.They could start him off at, say, Columbia of the low-A South Atlantic League to help him acclimate to the daily grind and gain confidence. If they ggo this route and Tebow hits . Air Jordan Retro 12 Wholesale. 120 in Class A ball, he might be out of baseball by next summer.Given his age, they could also opt to throw him into the deep end of the pool against better competition and let him fend for himself. If the Mets send him to Double A and he holds his own in the upper levels of the minors, the idea of Tim Tebow one day putting on a major league uniform might no longer be just a fantasy.Its too early for the Mets to make that determination, but Alderson said the organization will try to strike a balance between giving Tebow a chance to succeed while simultaneously challenging him to get better - and given the urgency to set this path in motion, these conversations will have to start soon.Theres going to be a little bit of rust, Alderson said. Theres going to be a need for instruction and development. I understand this isnt a typical one-off where we evaluate the tools and make a judgment. We understand that he hasnt been around the game for a while. We understand that hes 29 years old. And we understand that hes a tremendous competitor and will be a role model for the players in our system.Tebow encountered some questions about his commitment level Thursday when Alderson revealed that he will be leaving the instructional league for a couple of days each week to continue his work as an SEC Network football analyst for ESPN. Tebow confronted the issue head on during the conference call.Its something Ive committed to do, Tebow said. For me, when I commit to do something, its my word. Its more than a contract, because its my integrity and its who I am.During the week, Ill be training as hard as I can. Like Mr. Alderson said, youve got to take a break every now and then. One day a week will give me a chance to rest up and get back at it the next day. I dont really view it as not taking this seriously. Then again, I dont have to listen to listen to what everybody else says. I just get to go and do what I said I was going to do. Im going to pursue this with everything I have. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

It was announced on Tuesday that Owens will take charge of the first qualifier for the 2019 World Cup, a match between Jamaica and St Vincent and the Grenadines, taking place in Kingstown.The match is a far cry from the last international the Welshman officiated, the World Cup final between the All Blacks and Wallabies in October last year, but there is no danger of complacency from Owens as he watches over the sides ranked 78th and 79th in the world. Ive got to go out there and be professional and just do my job, Owens told Sky Sports.It doesnt matter what Ive achieved by refereeing the World Cup final or anything else, at the end of the day the people out there will expect me to referee this game on Saturday the same as any final, and thats what I will do. I think its important that whatever you achieve, not just in rugby but in any sport - or anything in life really - its so important that you never forget where youve come from and how you started. Nigel Owens I will go out there and do my best and I will prepare for the game the same way I would any other. The most important game is always the next game, and my next game is this Saturday.Whether its a World Cup qualifier, an under 16s game, an amateur game or the World Cup final I still enjoy every moment of it. Theres less pressure on you reffing games that arent the World Cup final, but its a different type of pressure. Theres still the pressure to perform.With New Zealand only crowned champions of the world a little over four months ago, the race has already begun to take part in the 2019 World Cup in Japan, and though qualification is a lengthy process, Owens is an advocate of giving all countries a chance to take part in the showpiece.Its great that teams and countries like this are given an opportunity to participate in the tournament in four years time. Owens last international appointment was the World Cup final at Twickenham on 31 October 2015 Not just for the players who get to play for their country but for the kids and schools within the community who will be watching the game too.His advocacy for an all-inclusive sport stems from his love of the amateur game, reminding us nobody starts at the top.I think its important that whatever you achieve, not just in rugby but in any sport - or anything in life really - its so important that you never forget where youve comee from and how you started, said the 68-test veteran. Adidas Ultra Boost Cheap Sale. ts nice to get the opportunity to put something back into the grassroots, and this is my chance to do that.There are two important parts to rugby. Youve got the top end which is the shop window, which gets people interested in playing the game, but that top end of international rugby cant survive without grassroots and the amateur community game. Its where we all start. Owens, here pictured with Bryan Habana, says the top flight of rugby cant survive without support for the grassroots game Its the top end of the game that gets all the coverage and income, which all then filters back down to keep the grassroots going of course, but thats where we all start. We all start in our local communities and clubs.The 44-year-old grew up watching his favourite sport in rugby-mad Wales, and has made sure to commit some time with the Kingstown community during his trip to promote the growth of the game.Ive got a few things Im doing while Im out there for the match. Im doing a couple of talks and Im visiting schools and clubs to do some question-and-answer sessions.Hopefully that wont just encourage people to watch the game, but also for some of the kids to participate in the game, and maybe encourage one or two of the youngsters who feel theyre not quite cut out for rugby, for whatever reason, to take up refereeing. Tuilagi joins England squad Manu Tuilagi joins Englands Six Nations training squad With visits to schools and the small matter of officiating Saturdays match, if Owens has any reservations about the latest international trip his whistle has bought for him, its down to the lack of seaside activities in the itinerary.I should have planned this better, I should have gone out there two weeks before the game and I would have had a week on the beach to get some colour!Its not a very big island, so wherever Im staying Im sure its only a couple of minutes from the beach so Im sure I will have a few hours of relaxation.Im just getting ready now to go out and do a training session before I leave for the Caribbean, which is going to be outside in the cold and wet, so itll be good on Thursday or Friday to go out on the beach and do some training with the sun on my back!

OXFORD, Miss. Signed Nike NFL Jerseys . -- Giddy Potts scored 20 points and hit four 3-pointers to lead Middle Tennessee to a 77-62 victory over Mississippi on Wednesday night.?Middle Tennessee (7-1) hit 9 of 16 3-pointers as a team and shot 48 percent (29 of 60) from the floor in a game they dominated from the opening tip.The problem is that we have guys who, for whatever reason, freeze up out there, Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy said. Its my job to have an answer for that, and I dont.?Ole Miss (5-2) struggled out of the gate, starting 0-for-7 from the field and turning the ball over 14 times in the first half. Middle Tennessee built a 16-1 lead early and eventually led 48-19 at the break.Ive been in coaching a while, and thats about the best half you could have from the standpoint of hitting shots and making plays, Middle Tennessee head coach Kermit Davis said.?Ole Miss opened the second half on a 10-2 run and chipped away at the MT lead for most of the half, but never led. The Rebels managed only two second-half turnovers and finished 19-of-27 from the free throw line, but in the end could not overcome their deep first-half hole.Weve flirted with a loss like this a couple times already this season, Kennedy said. Its like I told our team: if you get pulled over and the cop doesnt give you a ticket, you get a mile down the road and you speed back up -- you dont learn your lesson. Well, we got our ticket tonight. And were going to be paying for this one for a while.Middle Tennessee made shots when it needed them and finished an efficient 10-of-12 from the free throw line, including several during a late Rebel push.I wouldnt say it was anything we did second half, Davis said. They just started making plays and gaining momentum. I think they kind of maybe ran out of gas there at the end.Potts was 7 of 9 from the field and 4 of 6 from beyond the arc for the Blue Raiders. Reggie Upshaw added 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting and 10 rebounds and JaCorey Williams chipped in 10.?Deandre Burnett led the Rebels with 15 points., while Cullen Neal added 13 points and Breein Tyree 11.?TURNOVER TROUBLESMiddle Tennessee scored 15 points off turnovers, capitalizing on Rebel mistakes.Our points-off-turnovers have been really good the last few games, Davis said. Our 1-3-1 is very active, very long. And we need that to be effective for us.? BIG PICTUREMiddle Tennessee adds a quality road win to its non-conference resume. The Blue Raiders were an NCAA Tournament team last year, upsetting Michigan State in the first round.This was a quality RPI game that no one was really talking about, Davis said. It could be a great win in that sense for us. Andys team definitely has a chance to be an NCAA tournament team.?

The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. NEW YORK -- After his team blew a four-point lead in the closing seconds, Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard provided simple instructions.Get the ball to Desi Rodriguez, and then get out of the way.Khadeen Carrington set up Rodriguez for a tiebreaking a layup with 11.6 seconds left and Seton Hall beat No. 16 South Carolina 67-64 in the Under Armour Reunion at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.The Pirates went ahead when Rodriguez took an inbound pass from Carrington and drove along the baseline for the basket.(Willard) told me to look for Desi coming off the baseline, Carrington said. He had the big guy on him. I knew he could take him. I gave it to him and I spaced out. I just let him go.Seton Hall led 64-60 after a foul shot by Rodriguez with 1:49 left, but the Gamecocks rallied and tied it on two free throws by Justin McKie with 34.3 seconds remaining.Willard said it was dead silent in the huddle when he called a timeout with 17 seconds remaining. That worked for him.Its not a democracy in timeouts, Willard said. Theres definitely a dictatorship. Sometimes they get to say things -- not with 10 seconds left after we just gave up a four-point lead. These guys do a good job listening for the most part. It was a pass to Desi and everybody get out of the way.After the layup, PJ Dozier missed a 3-pointer for the Gamecocks, and Myles Powell knocked down one free throw for Seton Hall (8-2).He almost gave me a heart attack, Carrington said of Doziers missed 3-pointer.The Pirates trailed by nine early in the second haalf before rallying. Nike NFL Jerseys Autographed. Carrington led Seton Hall with 21 points after missing his first five shots.Theyve got some tough, tough dudes that dont back down, Gamecocks coach Frank Martin said. They got a culture of winning that was kind of established last year with obviously the season they had and they just got us, plain and simple.Dozier scored 20 points for South Carolina (8-1), which shot 38.6 percent and was outscored 40-30 in the final 20 minutes.BIG PICTURESeton Hall: Free throws had proven difficult for Seton Hall at times. The Pirates entered Monday making 61 percent of their attempts but hit enough to stay within striking distance during the first half. A 15-of-25 showing in the second half nearly cost them.South Carolina: The Gamecocks held an opponent under 40 percent shooting for the seventh time in nine games, but their lack of consistent offense down the stretch was their undoing.POLL IMPLICATIONSSeton Hall: The unranked Pirates may get some consideration for the AP Top 25 next week thanks to a big win on a big stage.South Carolina: The Gamecocks moved up three spots to No. 16 earlier Monday, their highest ranking since ending 1997-98 at No. 14.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- With one last chance for a gold medal in what is probably her last Olympics, Vivian Cheruiyot turned to -- who else -- Usain Bolt for a pre-race pep talk. Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys .Guess what? It worked.The Kenyan said she shared a few words with Bolt before her 5,000-meter final at the Olympic Stadium on Friday. Then she ran down world champion and heavy favorite Almaz Ayana to win a long-awaited first Olympic title. She also set a new Games record.It was my fourth Olympic Games, and I had not got gold, the 32-year-old Cheruiyot said. Almaz can go fast. ... Today I said, I am going to follow her. I am not going to lose her.Ayana set a world record to win gold in the 10,000 meters a week ago and opened a big gap in Fridays 5K final. But the Ethiopian suddenly faded, and Cheruiyot and Kenyan teammate Hellen Obiri saw their chance.Cheruiyot surged, breezing past Ayana with around two laps to go to win in 14 minutes, 26.17 seconds, breaking an Olympic record that has stood for 16 years. Obiri followed home in second for silver, 3.60 seconds behind Cheruiyot for a Kenyan 1-2.Ayana, who was tipped to have a crack at the 5,000 world record in the final after missing it by just a second in June, slumped and held on grimly for third in 14:33.59.I saw her, I saw shes not running smoothly and also she was slow, Cheruiyot said. She was not going good and we were coming, and I said to Hellen, Lets go, lets go. We are going to get something.The victory gave Cheruiyot revenge for her second-place finish behind the Ethiopian in the 10,000 earlier in these Games and finally put her on the top of the podium at her fourth Olympics, and after a silver and a bronze at London 2012, and another silver a week ago.All three medalists crossed inside the former Olympic record of 14:40.79 set by Romanias Gabriela Szabo at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. Not surprisingly, the five top finishers were all from Kenya or Ethiopia.The 24-year-old Ayana, completely dominant in the 10,000, was expected to challenge Ethiopian compatriot Tirunesh Dibabas world record of 14:11.15 in the 5,000 final. Halfway through she had taken control after an early break by Japans Miyuki Uehara and opened a big gap on the chasers.But, on a warm night in Rio, Cheruiyot paced herself better, sinking Ayanas bid for a 5,000-10,000 double at her first Olympics.Nikki Hamblin, the runner whose act of sportsmanship alongside American Abbey DAgostino in the 5,000 meters heats warmed hearts at the Olympics, finished last in the final in 16:14.24 -- still a personal best for the New Zealander.I went out there and I tried to compete, I tried as hard as I could, Hamblin said. I hung on for a while and then the move came and I didnt have the legs.The two were involved in one of the feel-good moments of the games when they collided in their heat and both tumbled. DAgostino first helped Hamblin to her feet and encouraged her to finish the race. The American then realized she had sustained a bad knee injury. Hamblin returned the favor by helping her, and DAgostino finished the race while grimacing in pain with torn knee ligaments.Both runners were given a place in Fridays final because of the collision but DAgostino didnt run because of her knee injury.Hamblin said shed now relive the moment on TV.Probably have to go back and rewatch it and have a cry about it and relive the Olympic moment, she said.

Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said.PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Pirates closer Jason Grilli has no intention of sitting out the Pirates bid for their first post-season appearance in more than two decades. Grilli remains out indefinitely with a strained tendon in his right (throwing) arm, but said Monday "Im going to be ready before the seasons out, you can mark my word on that." The 36-year-old made the first All-Star team of his career earlier this month and has converted 30 of 31 save opportunities but experienced searing pain in his right forearm while trying to finish off a victory over the Washington Nationals last Monday. Grilli acknowledges hed been dealing with some discomfort in the arm for awhile and wasnt 100 perfect but doesnt see any benefit in wondering if he should have come out sooner. "Im not going to put myself in a position, could I have shut myself down earlier? Thats all in hindsight," he said. "I could have. But Im the type of guy that wants to get the ball every time. Thats the way Ive been my entire career." An MRI revealed no damage to his elbow, something Grilli called "the best possible scenario." Instead of surgery he will rest the arm for another week before being re-examined. Though there is no timetable for hhis return, the usual recovery period for a strained flexor is 1-2 months. Cheap NBA Jerseys China. Still, it hasnt exactly been fun for Grilli to play the cheerleader instead of the hammer at the back of one of the best bullpens in the majors. "Its hard to watch baseball going on without you," he said. "But Im here in this clubhouse and not on a surgery table." Mark Melancon, who made the All-Star team as a setup man, is filling in for Grilli and has converted both save chances since moving into the closers role as the Pirates try to chase down St. Louis in the NL Central race. The Cardinals have a 1.5-game lead heading into a five-game set in Pittsburgh that is the biggest series at PNC Park since it opened in 2001. Its a showdown Grilli has been pointing to for weeks. Hell spend it watching rather than playing as the Pirates try to take an important step toward escaping from the cloud of 20 consecutive losing seasons. Its a cloud hes done his best to part. Whenever his right arm tells him its ready to go, he believes there will still be important games to play. The Pirates and the Cardinals meet in St. Louis from Aug. 13-15 and again in Pittsburgh Aug. 30-Sept. 1. "My turn will come again," Grilli said. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
