/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">PHOENIX -- Near the end of the 2015 season, Torey Lovullo took over as interim manager of the Boston Red Sox while John Farrell battled cancer. 

Cheap Dodgers Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .It was an experience, he said, that made him a little more prepared to be a full-time major league manager. But Lovullo promised to stay on as Red Sox bench coach for the 2016 season. He said he wanted to make sure John was OK before taking a managers job.The opportunity came when he was named Arizona Diamondbacks manager on Friday.The Diamondbacks introduced Lovullo, their third manager in four seasons, at a Chase Field news conference Monday. He has a familiar boss. Former Red Sox assistant general manager Mike Hazen was hired as Arizona general manager three weeks ago.For me, it really couldnt have worked out any better, Lovullo said. Coming from the organization that I came from, I learned a lot of special things from some really talented people. Certainly my connection with Mike was something I never wanted to lose.The moment Hazen was hired, Lovullo became the odds-on favorite to get the managers job. But Hazen insisted their relationship was not the overriding factor in the hiring.This was a process, Hazen said, a strong process, where we had a lot of strong candidates with different backgrounds, different levels of coaching experience, managerial experience. But ultimately Torey was the one who came out on top.Hazen and Lovullo replace Dave Stewart and Chip Hale, who were fired after the team went 69-93 last season.Im not going to get blinded by the fact the team won 69 games, Lovullo. `Im more excited about the type of players we have, the culture that were going to try to set here in the clubhouse and dugout.The 51-year-old new manager said the team has a nucleus of great players.I am very optimistic that we have the capabilities of doing something very special, he said. As I told one player on the phone, I want to be able to have us all tell a great story at the end of the 2017 season.Lovullo noted that the 2016 Diamondbacks were at or above league average in just about every offensive category.He had much less to say about the pitching. Arizona ranked last in the majors with a team ERA of 5.09.I havent done anything other than look at the numbers, Lovullo said.He called himself an active listener and planned to talk to more players soon.Im not sure what it was like here in the past, Lovullo said, but what theyre going to talk about and what theyre thinking about is going to matter to me.He brings an American League attitude to the NL West.Once I get a feel for our guys and our personnel, we will determine what type of team were going to be, Lovullo said. But I do like an offensive team, Im not going to lie.With the two hirings, the Diamondbacks are something of a Red Sox West.The Boston Red Sox are a special organization for a lot of reasons, Lovullo said. But all those key things we watched on a day-to-day basis there in Boston, yes we want to bring them here to Arizona, but we want to make them a little bit better.Lovullo played for UCLA, where he was a two-time Pac-10 player of the year. His father is television producer Sam Lovullo, whose shows include Hee Haw, which had a 20-year run. The son went a different direction.I think baseball chose me, he said. ... It really meant something special to me when I started to play and just had this incredible love for the game.Lovullo played parts of eight seasons in the majors.He spent nine seasons as a minor league manager before Farrell hired him as first base coach in Toronto. When Farrell went to Boston in an unusual trade, he took Lovullo with him as bench coach. Lovullo held the job for four seasons, including the World Series championship year of 2013. After Farrell was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, Lovullo led the Red Sox to a 28-20 record. With the disease in remission, Farrell returned last season with Lovullo by his side.Boston went 93-69 and won the AL East. That record is the exact opposite of the team Lovullo inherits in the desert. Cheap Dodgers Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .4 million title.

Job security has long been an oxymoron for coaches in this league, but even by that what-have-you-done-for-me-lately standard, this off-season has been a particularly volatile one. Twelve coaches have been fired since the season ended, including the coach of the year and five others who led teams to the playoffs. Setting franchise records for victories in a season gets you fired these days. Leading your team to the Western Conference finals gets you fired these days. One tough season coaching a roster full of dead-legged journeymen and still-learning rookies gets you fired these days. "Coaching has never been valued less and blamed more," said ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy, former coach of the Knicks and Rockets. "Failure gets you fired and success gets you fired." While the ground all around them has never been more unstable, the last two coaches standing this season have found the kind of level footing that has become increasingly rare. The San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat, tied 2-2 in the NBA Finals heading into Sunday nights Game 5, have become the models for stability and managed to rise above the chaotic fray engulfing much of the rest of the league. "I think its a terrible state for the profession right now," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "We see it differently, the San Antonio organization and the Miami Heat organization. (To have) true success in the NBA you must have consistency of culture. When you see that type of turnover over and over and over, its impossible to create any kind of sustainable consistent culture." The Nuggets, Clippers, Grizzlies, Bucks, Nets and Hawks all fired their coaches after playoff runs this season. The Bobcats fired Mike Dunlap after one season on the job, while Mike Brown made it all of five games into his second season with the Lakers before he was run out of town. Brooklyn owner Mikhail Prokhorov fired two coaches this season -- Avery Johnson less than a month after he was the Eastern Conference coach of the month and P.J. Carlesimo after the Nets lost to the Bulls in the playoffs. "Its disappointing that Lionel Hollins takes his team to the Western Conference finals and they are going to go in another direction," Hall of Famer and ESPN analyst Magic Johnson said last week about the situation in Memphis. "You cant get better than Lionel Hollins, and you cant get better with what you have; just a tremendous season. "Do I like whats going on today? No." Warren LeGarie represents some of the biggest names in the coaching business, including Hollins. He said he doesnt see a crisis brewing, but he does believe periods of upheaval like this "are going to become more common than not." "No matter what, youve got to keep your seat belts fastened because theres a lot of turbulence out there," LeGarie said. "I tell my guys to try to improve their relationship with the front office as much as possible and keep the lines of communication open. No one likes surprises." George Karl led the Nuggets to the playoffs in all eight of his seasons and earned coach of the year honours this year after helping a starless team set a franchise record with 57 victories. He told The Denver Post that he thought the decision to fire him was "very stupid," and Gregg Popovich wont argue with him. In his 117th season as coach of the Spurs, Popovich is the longest tenured coach in the league. Cheap MLB Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. . The manic approach that many NBA owners take to changing coaches, in his eyes, runs counter to the philosophies that made many of them successful in other pursuits. "As you think about it, it seems like it would apply no matter what your business is," Popovich said. "If you can have continuity, a good group, a team, so to speak, and all that that entails and keep it in a continuous manner so that it grows more or less upon itself, within itself and the knowledge and understanding continues to grow you have a pretty good understanding. You can deal with adversity and you cannot get too pumped up about success but just enjoy it and realize how fleeting it might be. "But the change, change, change, change, change thing doesnt really work. You can see that in a lot of organizations." Spoelstra has only been on the job five seasons, but that makes the baby-faced 42-year-old a relative grey beard in this business. He is the third-longest tenured coach in the league behind Popovich and Bostons Doc Rivers. It all starts at the top, with Spurs owner Peter Holt and Heat owner Micky Arison long considered two of the more level-headed owners in the league. Arison has worked with President Pat Riley since 1995, while Holt, GM R.C. Buford and Popovich have been the power trio in San Antonio since 1997. "The continuity I think breeds, it breeds trust, it breeds camaraderie, it breeds a feeling of responsibility that each member holds towards the other," Popovich said. "The ability to be excited for each others success, not to develop territory and walls, but to stay participatory. To be able to discuss, to argue and come out at the end on the same page with the same passion and the same goals." "And I think without continuity thats pretty impossible, because all the immediate tendencies of instant success starts to take over and that just breeds failure." The tranquility, and volatility, seems to trickle down to the players. Before coming to the Heat three years ago, Chris Bosh spent seven seasons in Toronto. He played for three different coaches and five different general managers in that time and only made the playoffs twice. "Ive been a part of organizations where the GMs and coaches have been like musical chairs," Bosh said. "Its hard to get stability. The players are in and out. Here its comforting to know you can work with the same people and get to know the same people." If there was any team that could be tempted to bow to public pressure it is the Heat. Playing under a white-hot spotlight ever since LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Bosh teamed up in the summer of 2010 has brought unparalleled scrutiny. Spoelstra was deemed by some not experienced enough to coach such a star-laden roster, and Bosh has heard calls for him to be traded for two years. The Heat ignored all of that and now find themselves in their third straight finals, two victories away from their second straight championship. "When people dont see success right away, they just want to fire everybody and trade everybody and move on from there," Bosh said. "It takes patience. I think a lot of people up top understand that. The coaching staff understands that. I think now were in a position to really be successful, hopefully, for a while." Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

At last years National Womens Hockey League All-Star Game in Buffalo, commissioner Dani Rylan confidently predicted the fledgling league -- the first to pay players regular salaries -- had enough investor capital and sponsorship commitments to fully fund a second season in 2016-17.She was wrong.Citing cash flow problems and a drop-off in attendance, Rylan confirmed Friday that the league has asked players on its four teams to take significant salary cuts for the rest of the season. A person familiar with the leagues finances but not authorized to discuss them said the cuts are 50 percent, and follows two pay periods where direct deposits to some players arrived several days late.The leagues coaches, general managers and paid staff are not affected, Rylan said. Most of the leagues front-office employees are volunteers.Teams have a $270,000 salary cap with player salaries ranging from $10,000 to $25,000.We fell short on some projections, and we had to pivot and make a business decision, Rylan said on a conference call Friday. Unfortunately, we had to make this decision to save the season.Its a decision we did not take lightly. It came after trying everything we could from a business perspective to avoid it. Were doing everything we can to build the league, and sometimes that means taking a step back -- a step I have not wanted to take.The cuts, Rylan said, ensures the league will complete its 21-game regular season and the playoffs. (Teams have played between four and six games so far.) But the league did not consult with the NWHL Players Association.And the timing, more than a month into the season, angered many players.New York Riveters captain Ashley Johnston said the players had no inkling this was coming before Thursday night, when Rylan informed them by phone and email.To hear its something that needs to happen is a tough thing to hear, Johnston said on the same conference call as Rylan. Its kind of like going through different stages of mourning. Youre sad. Youre frustrated. All the things that you would expect.Said Rylan: The players reacted pretty emotionally. It was difficult news to receive. But many of them reached out to me directly, asking how they could help.Rylan offered one piece of encouraging news: Dunkin Donuts, the leagues first corporate sponsor, pledged an additional $50,000 to go directly to salaries.We believe in the league and we believe in the opportunity to give these women a chance to succeed, said Tom Manchester, the firms vice president of field marketing, in a telephone interview. As a sponsor, its not about dasher boards and signnage and traditional marketing elements. Cheap Wizards Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. We genuinely want these women to succeed in a sport where the men get paid a lot more money to play. We want these women to get an equal chance.The NWHL launched last season with great fanfare and expectations as the American answer to the Canadian Womens Hockey League, which paid bonuses but not salaries. U.S. national teams stars Hilary Knight, Meghan Duggan, Brianna Decker and others eagerly signed up even though NWHL founder Rylan remained secretive about the leagues financial underpinnings. Only three investors were ever publicly identified, the first being Joel Leonoff, a Canadian entrepreneur whose daughter Jaimie tended goal for the Connecticut Whale.Players said the league met every payroll. But there were rumblings about late payments to vendors and venues. Former chief marketing officer Mike Moran sued the league and Rylan for breach of contract to recover a $200,000 investment. Last February the league cut ties with George Spiers, another executive and investor. Three franchises switched arenas after last season, leaving only the Buffalo Beauts in their original home.This season is considered pivotal for anyone aspiring to play in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Twelve U.S. national team players are skating in the league, including Knight, Duggan, Decker, Kelli Stack and the former University of Minnesota star Amanda Kessel. The league also features 10 Canadians, one Austrian and one South Korean.NWHL contracts allow players to opt out for virtually any reason, though its not clear whether any will. At this point, most have no other place to play.CHWL commissioner Brenda Andress did not immediately respond to an email asking if NWHL players would be welcome in her league.This is the place where we all want to play, said Johnston, who is not on the national team. Were all invested in this league. We all want to see it succeed.It would be easy right now for everyone to pack up their bags and go home, but Im never one to really think that the easy thing is the right thing to do. Its going to be figuring out the next step, where we go as a team and a league as a family from here.Though Rylan believes the league will ultimately succeed, the pressing need for more sponsors and investors puts that in doubt.After yesterdays news, it would be pretty foolish of me to guarantee anything, she said. But we have every hope and expectation the league will be around for many years to come. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">It was well past midnight in Bristol, Tennessee. 

Cheap Red Sox Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . The confetti was still falling, the fireworks were still popping, ears were still ringing, and the postgame traffic was only beginning the first leg of its long, snaking journey into the Smoky Mountains night.Im sure Marcus Smith, president and chief operating officer of Speedway Motorsports Inc. (the owner of Bristol Motor Speedway), was soaking in the moment. The Battle at Bristol between Tennessee and Virginia Tech by all measures had been a successful venture. The game had delivered on its promise to attract the largest crowd in college football history, drawing 156,990. Im sure Smith was quietly reflecting on how, a full two decades after his father, NASCAR Hall of Fame member Bruton Smith, had first reached out to the two schools with the idea (not to mention $1 million checks), the dream of the game had finally been realized. Im sure it was a great moment that Marcus was having, fully immersed in the magical glow of the here and now.But hey, he was just standing there and Ive known the dude forever, so I asked the question anyway. Is there going to be a Battle at Bristol 2?Well see, Smith, 43, said with a smile. Theres a lot of debriefing to do with a lot of people. But I certainly do think theres interest.Theres no doubt about that. Zigzagging between in-game and postgame chats with everyone from ESPN executives to ACC/SEC reps to the family behind the games title sponsor, the Haslams, there was not a frown to be found. I think this was the perfect storm, said Big Jim, company founder and an offensive lineman on Tennessees 1951 national title team coached by Robert Neyland. These two teams from these two states at this place, thats hard to beat.Yes, it is. And that might be the problem.While Butch Jones stood alongside the games fittingly over-the-top trophy, he said, This experience ... itll never be replicated. Itll never be duplicated.A few minutes later, the Tennessee coach clarified his comments. Jones said he was speaking of the thrill of what he believed would be deemed an inaugural event. The trick will be recreating that inaugural thrill.It was always going to be these two teams, said just-retired Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer. He beamed while sitting on a golf cart shortly after being recognized to the thunderous applause of Hokies fans. When the schools were first approached by the racetrack, Beamer, a NASCAR fan, was immediately on board. But Tennessee required more convincing. Theres no better way to get this area energized than these two teams, Beamer said. So, do you make this an annual rivalry? You certainly could. But I also bet other schools watching this tonight are probably thinking, man, wed like to get in on that.But who else would be as perfect as the marquee programs of the two states that literally split the host town of Bristol in half? Would Alabama fans travel to Thunder Valley, USA, for a game against, say, Clemson? Would Ohio State loyalists come south to see the Buckeyes take on, perhaps, Georgia?A big chunk of those visitors are gonna need to camp out. With Vols and Hokies fans, all of the above was a given.The Battle certainly wasnt without its issues. The crush to cram all of those people through the racetracks gates was downright scary at times. But NASCAR crowds typically arrive in more of a daylong stream, not a football-style The gates are now open! type of rush. Before Saturday nights game was over, track employees were already kicking around ideas on how to relieve that pressure. The complaints about sightlines and the distance from the field seemed largely reserved to those at the game in a working capacity. Media members and broadcast crews found it challenging to follow the football from such a distance.But Speedway Motorsports Inc. has plenty of experience when it comes to dealing with such issues. Over the past quarter-century, it has opened new racetracks, all larger than Bristol, and added new events to those facilities. Some of those inaugural events were flawless. Others were indisputable disasters. Those disasters were all quickly smoothed over. I know. I lived through a couple of them, before and after.The Battle at Bristol was nowhere near a disaster. It was a smash. Just ask the people who were on the field, even the ones who lost. I think the event in its entirety was fantastic, said Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente. For what its worth, I thought it was a beautiful setting and beautiful arena to play in.Thats worth a lot. As will be the inevitable discussions about what comes next.Theres a lot of talk to come about the future, Marcus Smith said before heading out of the infield. But weve got a lot more to do here tonight first.Bristol is also good at trolling.??Michigan rightfully tweet-bragged about its attendance Saturday at The Big House, drawing 109,295, its 267th game with 100,000-plus attendees. Then the Battle at Bristol account replied, Thats cute a few hours before it announced a crowd of 156,990. The single-game record that was broken by the racetrack was 115,109, set at Michigan vs. Notre Dame in 2003.This weeks version of The SEC is dying! The Big 12 went 0-2 vs. the MAC over the weekend. In the first two weeks of the season, the Big 12 has been handed Power 5 losses by Stanford, Arkansas, Arizona State and Houston. Wait ... sorry, Houston isnt a Power 5 team yet. Thatll change when they join the Big 12.Ridonculous Stats Department, Part 1. Running back Kalen Ballage of Arizona State scored eight touchdowns against Texas Tech, seven on the ground and one receiving, tying the 26-year-old NCAA record held by Howard Griffith of Illinois. However, Griffiths big day came against FCS (then I-AA) opponent Southern Illinois. Ballange also tied Griffith and five other players for the most points scored in a single game with 48. But again, he was the first FBS player to do it against an FBS opponent. The other players on the list were all from Division II and III programs.Ridonculous Stats Department, Part Deux. Even with an extra day to process the Friday night performance of Louisville QB Lamar Jackson vs. Syracuse -- 610 yards of offense and the first FBS player with at least 400 yards passing and 175 rushing in one game -- I still cant wrap my mind around it.Ridonculous Stats Department, one more time. If youve read Flipping The Field all year (and thanks if you have), then you know I have a bit of a San Diego State fixation. Last week, we told you to keep an eye on the Aztecs home game against Cal. It didnt disappoint. SDSU won a wild one, 45-40, to extend the nations second-longest winning streak to a dozen games. Weve also told you to keep an eye on running back?Donnel Pumphrey. He also didnt disappoint, rushing for a 2016 FBS-best 281 yards, moving him past?Marshall Faulk to become the schools all-time leading rusher ... and they still have 10 regular-season games to go! Speaking of teams on a roll ...Were going streaking! If you were surprised that Florida whipped Kentucky, then you dont know a ton about SEC football history. The number wizards at ESPN Stats & Info tell me that the 45-7 win was the Gators 30th consecutive triumph over the Wildcats, the fourth-longest streak in an uninterrupted series in FBS history. The record is Notre Dames 43-year dominance over Navy, a streak that ended in 2006. Ohio States 48-3 mugging of Tulsa marked the Buckeyes fourth consecutive 40-point performance, the fourth time the team has put together such a streak under Urban Meyer. All other coaches in the history of the program have managed only three such streaks ever, one each under John Cooper, Earl Bruce and Woody Hayes. Meanwhile, Michigans 114 points is the most for the program through two games since 1914. The team record was set in 1892, when the Wolverines scored 142 points in back-to-back games with the Michigan Athletic Association club team from Detroit. Not surprisingly, the Michigan A.A. did not book a rematch in 1893.Get in the car, Frank ... Auburn never punted during its 51-14 win over Arkansas State, the first time the Tigers attempted zero punts in a game since 2005. Last weekend, Cheney University, a D-II school in Pennsylvania, snapped a 43-game losing streak by defeating Lincoln University in overtime. Alas, their winning streak was much shorter. On Saturday, they lost 79-3 to California University of Pennsylvania.Why the long face? Because its his game face.

Conners comeback story, back from injuries and cancer, has inspired a wave of national attention. But the buzz within the Keystone State all week was produced via a perceived slight from Penn State, which seemed to not be super enthusiastic about the revived rivalry with Pitt after 16 years off. After a dramatic, back-and-forth showdown, Penn States furious fourth quarter came up short and the Panthers won 42-39, the most points ever scored by Pitt in their 97 meetings. Conner arrived to the media room not alone but surrounded by teammates hed insisted come with him, including the offensive linemen who paved the way for his 117-yard, two-TD afternoon.

Games like that one. The weekend was packed with rivalries that might not register like an Ohio State-Michigan nationally, but are regional bonfires. Im speaking of Iowa-Iowa State, which wasnt a great game, but also Pitt-Penn State (great game), Boston College-UMass, Middle Tennessee-Vandy, New Mexico-New Mexico State (great game), Wazzu-Boise State (great game) and the most underrated rivalry in college football, BYU-Utah (great game).

When asked about a couple of visible, intense sideline arguments with offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin during the Tides 38-10 win over Western Kentucky, Saban replied, Those were no arguments. Those were ass-chewings.Yeah, its early in the season, but ... The competition for best helmets of 2016 might already be over, even during a weekend when TCU went with a sweet, chrome purple and Arizona State trotted out a gorgeous, full-forked design. But Air Force showed some bite that cant be beaten. During their 48-14 trouncing of Georgia State, the Falcons celebrated their very own version of Shark Week, wearing lids emblazoned with the legendary shark tooth design made famous by the Flying Tigers squadron of World War II and more recently A-10 Warthog tank busters.?Speaking of the academies ... Its the first time since 1996 that all three service academies have started 2-0. Navy honored injured QB Tago Smith by wearing No. 2s and reached 2-0 with a win over UConn. But heres the shocker: Navy and Air Force are joined in the undefeated department by the longtime distant third service academy team. Army has already matched last seasons win total by knocking off Temple and Rice. Both of those teams are Owls. Is it too late to schedule FAU, Kennesaw State and Bryn Mawr?Weston Steelhammer Name of the Week: Speaking of competitions that were over before theyd even started, the greatest name in college football belongs to Steelhammer, Air Forces hard-hitting safety. In honor of him, were going to scour the rosters of the 128 FBS teams and find other monikers worthy of mention. First, well call this our Almost Famous guy. Thatd be Dom Maggio,?a?punter at Wake Forest. He isnt quite a DiMaggio or Dom DiMaggio, but is a little bit of both. During Saturdays Tobacco Road win over Duke, Maggio booted it seven times for an average of 46.4 yards per punt.That time we all outrushed UMass: Last week, some Minutemen fans sent me nasty correspondence after I included them in the Bottom 10, despite a valiant effort in The Swamp. This week in the Battle of the Bay State, UMass rushed for minus-23 yards and lost 26-7.Frank Reich Backup QB Of The Week Award: Ellis Knudson, Towson. The Tigers of the FCS Colonial Athletic Association started their home opener vs. St. Francis by promptly giving up an 89-yard defensive touchdown. Then their starting QB, Oregon transfer Morgan Mahalak, was knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury. With seconds remaining in the first half, St. Francis was up 28-10. No problem. Backup QB Knudson trotted onto Johnny Unitas Field and threw for 301 yards, including a 43-yard TD pass to wideout Christian Summers that broke a tie in the closing minutes and iced the 35-28 win. Summers finished with 232 yards receiving. Knudson finished a Towson hero.Comeback of the Week Award, also named for Frank Reich: Same!The Guy You Should Know About, But Probably Dont: Cooper Rush, QB, Central Michigan.?Rush shows moments of legit talent with moments of brilliance, and his stats Saturday were going to be off the charts no matter how badly the refs officiated. His final line vs. Oklahoma State: 30-of-42, 361 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT. Rushs No. 1 target was tight end Tyler Conklin, who had seven catches for 96 yards and a pair of TDs, including one of the sickest one-handed grabs youll ever see. In 2015, he had six catches for 95 yards the entire season. And in the most awesomely #MACtion thing youll read today, Conklin is a transfer athlete from Division II Northwood University, where he played ... basketball.The Team You Should Know About, But Probably Dont: East Carolina. There were many in Greenville feeling crushed when the Pirates were the first team revealed as being cut from the Big 12s expansion shopping list. But honestly, the Bucs have always done their best work as an underdog. On Saturday, they defeated NC State in one of the rawest rivalries that most of the nation doesnt know a whole lot about. (Trust me on this. I grew up around this. Some of the most impressively awful fights Ive ever seen were as a kid trying to get out of the Carter-Finley Stadium parking lot after an ECU-NCSU game.) ECU fans live for knocking off Power 5 schools -- particularly ACC schools. Everything that has been said about Pitt-Penn State when it comes to the dramatically changing fortunes of the coaches applies every bit to ECU-NCSU. Since Dave Doeren took over at NC State in 2013, the Pack have won only six ACC games. Over that same span, East Carolina has also won games against six ACC schools ... and ECU is an AAC school. Im thinking that stat might come up during lunch at barbecue joints all over eastern North Carolina this week. Oh, by the way, ECU is also now 2-0 and will continue its Ignored Stepchild Grudge Match Tour with a trip to South Carolina next week and Virginia Tech for Week 4.The Game You Should Be Psyched For But Probably Arent: North Dakota State at Iowa?(Saturday, noon ET, ESPN2): The Week 3 slate is l-l-l-loaded. I visited Norman, Oklahoma, back in August, and everyone was already buzzing about the Houston game to the point that an athletic administrator said to me, Damn, I dont even know if people realize we have Ohio State coming in here three weeks in! Talking to College GameDay producers, they said there has rarely been a week with so much debate about where to do the show because there were so many juicy options. Ultimately, the overwhelming showings by Louisville and Florida State were too much to ignore. Youd also be wise not to ignore the goings-on in Iowa City, when the FCS juggernaut Bison will have a chance to knock off not only a ranked FBS team, but a squad that came within a point of making the 2015 College Football Playoff. If youve ever been to Fargo or simply know someone with ties to the NDSU program, then you know this is just the kind of day that place lives for.Extra Point: On a personal level, the Battle at Bristol experience kind of felt like a game Id been training for my entire adult life. For those of you who dont know, I also cover motorsports for ESPN and have for 20-plus years now. Over that time, Ive not met many people -- and certainly no superstars -- as genuine as Dale Earnhardt Jr. The Bristol Motor Speedway has always been one of his best racetracks and is also one of the places where his father crystalized his Intimidator persona. Unfortunately, Dale Jr. hasnt been behind the wheel since mid-summer and wont return for the remainder of the 2016 NASCAR season because of ongoing concussion-like symptoms. Just one week ago, he held his first public news conference, sitting with his boss, Rick Hendrick, and his doctor to update his condition. During that Q&A, he was very honest about the depression and frustration involved with being out of his car and with the ongoing processes of healing. Earnhardt and his doctor both talked about how important it was to his recovery to get out of the house and into public and do things that challenge his mind. Well, it doesnt get more out into the public or more challenging than taking the College GameDay stage and making your Saturday picks in front of thousands of screaming fans and millions of television viewers. So earlier in the week, he called me to go over his choices. Some were based on facts, and others were based on family (his fiancée is a former Kentucky cheerleader, so he couldnt pick Tennessee over Virginia Tech). But the best part was seeing the smile on his face before, during and after the trip to Tennessee to sit with Rece, Desmond, Coach and Herbie. I could tell it was providing Dale with a much-needed boost to both his mind and spirit. Thats a great thing. Hes one of the good guys. Cheap Red Sox Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. Cheap MLB Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The noise Josh Hamiltons bat made when it connected with Edward Mujicas changeup was music to his ears, and those of his Los Angeles Angels teammates. Hamilton hit a tying two-run homer in Los Angeles three-run ninth inning, and the Angels rallied for a 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. "It was just a good feeling to hear that sound come off your bat," Hamilton said. "... It couldnt happen on a better day for the crowd on the Fourth of July. They got a little more fireworks and a little more bang for their buck than they thought they were going to get. It was cool. "Anytime you can contribute like that, especially in the late innings and have a comeback like that, its a pretty special feeling." Mark Trumbo belted his 19th homer and Mike Trout had two RBIs for Los Angeles, which took two of three in the series. Scott Downs (2-2) got three outs for the victory. "Whether we won that game or not, this team never gives up," Albert Pujols said. "I mean, weve got 12 or 13 position players that really compete every day. Our bullpen threw the ball well to keep us in the game." St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright, the NL pitcher of the month for June, took a 5-3 lead into the ninth before giving up a leadoff single by Pujols, who was 1 for 11 in his first series against his former team. Manager Mike Matheny then brought in Mujica, who had converted 21 of 21 save opportunities this season. But Hamilton drove the right-handers second pitch into the centre field trees for his 11th homer, extending his hitting streak to nine games and raising his average to .226. "Players Ive talked to about him said hes not afraid to throw his split five or six times in a row because thats his go-to pitch. So hes going to stick to what has been working for him," Hamilton said. "I didnt try to do too much with it. I didnt try to yank it or anything like that -- just hit it back up the middle." Howie Kendrick and Trumbo followed with singles, and Mujica (0-1) retired his next two batters before Erick Aybar drove in the winning run with an opposite-field single to left. Aybar had three hits and scored a run for Los Angeles. Mujica acknowledged that he shook off batterymate Yadier Molina on the ill-fated pitches to Hamilton and Aybar. "I made two big mistakes. I didnt follow Yadier on a couple of pitches, and that was the ball game," Mujica said. "He called for a fastball on Hamilton and I threw the changeup. On Aybar, he called for a fastball again and I decided to throw my changeup. I threw a couple good changeups and got two popups so I figured Id go with my best pitch." Wainwright, the only Carddinals pitcher averaging at least seven innings per start, defended Mathenys decision to take him out after 104 pitches. Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. His season high is 120, on May 11 in a two-hit shutout against Colorado. "Weve always liked that situation. Hes the right guy in that situation," Wainwright said of Mujica. "Hes been great all year. Thats what happens when you let a leadoff guy on in the last inning. Thats on me, right there. I have to go out and get that guy out." Angels starter Joe Blanton gave up five runs, four earned, and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings. The right-hander, who signed a $15 million, two-year contract with Los Angeles over the winter, is 0-4 with a 5.17 ERA in nine starts this season at Anaheim Stadium. Blanton averaged 13 pitches through the first three innings while retiring nine of his first 10 batters. But just three batters into the fourth, the Cardinals pulled ahead 3-2 on a single by Carlos Beltran, a walk to Matt Holliday and Allen Craigs homer. Craig leads the majors with a .469 average with runners in scoring position. It was the seventh straight start in which Blanton gave up a home run. The Angels tied it in the bottom of the fourth on Trumbos drive to centre. But the Cardinals got the run back in the fifth on Matt Carpenters sacrifice fly, and then made it 5-3 in the sixth on a two-out RBI single by Daniel Descalso that chased Blanton, who has given up a major league-worst 135 hits. The Angels opened the scoring in the third on a two-out, two-run single by Trout, after Wainwright gave up singles to Alberto Callaspo and Aybar, and J.B. Shuck advanced them with a sacrifice bunt. NOTES: Hamilton, the only player in the Angels starting lineup who had faced Wainwright previously, was 0 for 2 against him after coming in 3 for 7. ... St. Louis Jon Jay played his 227th consecutive game in centre field without an error, breaking Curt Floods franchise record for any outfield position. ... Holliday was back in the Cardinals lineup as the designated hitter, going 0 for 3 with two strikeouts and a walk after missing two games because of a pinched nerve in his neck. ... Trout leads the Angels with 55 RBIs, just two fewer than he had through his first 84 games last season, when he finished with 83 and was named AL rookie of the year after spending the first month of the season at Triple-A. ... RHP Lance Lynns next start for the Cardinals will be Sunday at home against the Miami Marlins. He has two chances left to become the sixth pitcher in Cardinals history to post at least 11 wins before the All-Star break in consecutive seasons, and the first since Joaquin Andujar (1984-85). The others were Dizzy Dean, Bob Gibson, Mort Cooper and Gerry Staley. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">BALTIMORE -- All that has transpired for the Baltimore Ravens this month has put them in position for, as safety Eric Weddle put it, A December to Remember. 

Brian Sutter Blues Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .The Ravens followed a winless October with a 3-1 November, capped by a 19-14 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.Baltimore (6-5) climbed back into a tie with Pittsburgh atop the AFC North with five games to go.We have to win every game, we feel, this last stretch, Weddle said.The Bengals (3-7-1) feel the same way. The difference is, that might not be good enough to get them into the postseason for the sixth consecutive year.We have been able to control it ourselves. Now we need help, coach Marvin Lewis said.After spending five straight Decembers fighting for playoff position, Cincinnati is now in a situation where one more loss may end its postseason hopes.It starts to wear on you, cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. Im a winner. Ive never been in this situation. But at the end of the day, when youre a competitor you keep competing, especially when your back is against the wall.Some things we learned about the Ravens and Bengals on SundayERFECT AND IMPERFECT: Ravens kicker Justin Tucker has been perfect in 11 games this year. After connecting from 52, 57 , 54 and 36 yards, Tucker is 27 for 27 and has made all 15 of his conversion attempts.It was the 11th time Tucker has kicked at least four field goals in a game. Baltimore is 10-1 when that happens.To be on this kind of roll is good, but it doesnt end today, Tucker said. Hopefully this is something that would help carry our team all the way to the playoffs.Tuckers counterpart Sunday, Cincinnatis Mike Nugent, missed his third straight extra point try (over two games) and has misfired on four of 23 conversion attempts this year.TIPPING HIS HAND: A handful of Andy Daltons 22 incompletions came when Ravens defenders tipped his passes at the line of scrimmage, sending spirals everywhere but toward their intended targets.Since Dalton stands 6-foot-2, it seemed like a concerted effort by the Baltimore defense to simply reach for the ball instead of applying an all-out rush.Id have to watch (film), but my guess is they werent rushing as much, just putting their hands up, Dalton said.Dalton was sacked three times and lost two fumbles. In his defense, he played without injured wide receiver A.J. Green and running back Giovani Bernard and was backed by a running game that could muster only 64 yards on 20 attempts.ELVIS IN THE BUILDING: The return of Elvis Dumervil was a big factor in Baltimores strong defensive effort.Playing in his third game of the season and for the first time in five weeks, the Ravens sack specialist stripped Dalton of the ball with just over a minute left to seal the victory.It was a great start, Dumervil said. Im still a little rusty, but Im fine-tuning things and hopefully I can be peaking at the right time.The road back from foot surgery has been difficult for the five-time Pro Bowl linebacker. Dumervil missed the first three games of the season before seeing action in back-to-back games in early October. That was it until Sunday.For him to play so well is satisfying for him, Im sure, coach John Harbaugh said, but its really satisfying for me and everyone else.MISSING MAN FORMATION: With Bernard (ACL) out for the season and Green (hamstring) sidelined, the Bengals offense looked elsewhere for production. Halfback Rex Burkhead averaged 5.8 yards on each of his five carries against the NFLs top rushing defense, and wide receiver Tyler Boyd made five catches for 62 yards.It felt good to get out there, get your hand on the ball and get some touches, Burkhead said. I feel like I could have played better. Im never satisfied. I always look for ways to improve.KOCHS BIG DAY: Tucker wasnt the only special teams star for the Ravens. Punter Sam Koch averaged 44.4 yards per kick and dropped four of his five punts inside the 20.He also ran the clock out on the final play, prancing around in the end zone while his teammates literally held off the Cincinnati rush.Koch eventually ran out of the end zone for a safety. There were multiple Ravens holding on the play -- intentionally -- because a game can end on a play that features an offensive infraction.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL. Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

DURHAM, N.C. -- Wake Forest and Duke have been getting it done on defense.The instate Atlantic Coast Conference rivals meet Saturday in their league opener, and both have defenses that have been overshadowed by offenses that were at opposite ends of the spectrum during their openers.Neither team allowed a touchdown in opening-game victories, with Wake Forest beating Tulane 7-3 and Duke taking care of North Carolina Central 49-6.The challenge is twofold, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said. Weve got to get better (on offense) from Week 1, and weve got a challenging group to do it against.The Demon Deacons (1-0) were strong on defense , allowing Tulane a field goal on its opening drive and nothing else. The 280 total yards they gave up was misleading because they didnt get much relief from an offense that struggled to stay on the field -- especially in the second half, when the offense ran just 26 plays and gained three first downs.Duke (1-0) put up even better numbers against a Championship Subdivision opponent. The Blue Devils gave up just 112 total yards -- the fewest ever surrendered by a David Cutcliffe-coached team -- and both field goals by the Eagles came after Duke turnovers. Central didnt have a drive longer than six plays or 21 yards.But that was against a low-level opponent. The stakes go way up this week, because this earlier-than-usual result will show up in the league standings.You learn quickly the lesson of intensity, Cutcliffe said, so were anxious to see if we practice and play with an ACC intensity.---Some things to know about the Wake Forest-Duke rivalry:- QB CONCERNS: Clawson is sticking with his two-quarterback system , starting junior John Wolford but bringing in sopphomore Kendall Hinton. Vince Dunn Blues Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Neither one was particularly sharp in the opener, with Wolford throwing for 79 yards and Hinton rushing for a team-best 24 yards with the games only touchdown. He says their numbers would have been better had the Demon Deacons receivers pulled in some catchable balls against Tulane, adding that the bottom line is, we didnt make those plays and as a result, we were not as productive on offense as we need to be.- KEEP UP WITH JONES: Duke QB Daniel Jones is coming off one of the best debuts in Duke history. He threw for 189 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another score while amassing a passer rating of 216.51 -- a school single-game record for freshmen.- STREAKY SERIES: Its been Dukes turn to dominate this Tobacco Road rivalry. The Blue Devils have won four straight in the series, including last years 27-21 decision in Winston-Salem, after the Demon Deacons reeled off 12 wins in a row from 2000-11.- CAM CAN, CANT HE? Wake Forest needs to get its best player the ball more often. TE Cam Serigne managed just three catches for 15 yards against Tulane. Serigne entered the season with 100 catches during the past two years, leading the team with 54 in 2014. Maybe facing Duke will help -- he has 11 career receptions and two touchdowns against the Blue Devils, and his only 100-yard game -- a five-catch, 135-yard effort -- came in last years meeting.---Follow Joedy McCreary at http://twitter.com/joedyap.

Not even being picked first or second overall is a guarantee, but the first 24 games of a career are a pretty good measure of future success -- or failure.- BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens understand how embarrassing it would be to lose to the winless Cleveland Browns on national television. They would rather focus on the benefits of a victory, which would thrust them into sole possession of first place in the AFC North.- The Cleveland Browns are winless, 0-9 for the first time in franchise history. They are ranked dead last at No. 32 in the AP Pro32. And now they must play on a short week at their hated rival, the Ravens -- who used to be the Browns before fleeing to Baltimore in 1996.- Nick Saban is on the verge of another milestone victory, another number that gives a glimpse at how dominant his teams have been at Alabama. A victory by the Crimson Tide against Mississippi State on Saturday in Tuscaloosa will be Sabans 40th when Alabama has been ranked No. 1, matching Bobby Bowden and Woody Hayes for the most by a coach.- While offensive stars like Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson more often than not command the lions share of the ACC limelight on game day, there are plenty of stars on the other side of the ball who have helped elevate the conference to new heights.- There is no Heisman hype for the Big 12 Conference, even with some impressive performances this season from players like Oklahoma receiver Dede Westbrook and Texas running back DOnta Foreman. Still, the Big 12 isnt likely to have a player in New York next month for the Heisman Trophy ceremony. Maybe next year.- COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&Ms Trevor Knight is the highest profile graduate transfer in the Southeastern Conference this season, jumping in to fill a major void at quarterback for the 10th-ranked Aggies. However, teams across the league are sprinkled with players who moved into the SEC as graduate students after careers at other schools.- PHOENIX -- On the last full day of the annual general managers meeting, Major League Baseball goes over possible rules changes.- MIAMI -- Dwyane Wade will play Thursday in Miami for the 525th time, and for the first time in some other teams uniform. When the Chicago Bulls visit the Heat, itll be a homecoming for the three-time NBA champion.- COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Some of Americas best soccer players returned this week to central Ohio, where a 20,000-seat stadium named for its insurance company sponsor is considered a spiritual home of the mens national team.- East Kilbrides players are the talk of Scottish soccer and beyond thanks to a 27-match winning run that has the tiny community-led club from the outskirts of Glasgow dreaming big. Soccer Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

The update is set to be the teams final upgrade of the season, after it received the latest-spec Ferrari power unit at Monza.Gutierrez hopes Haas will be able to maximise the benefits of the upgrade around the Marina Bay Street Circuit.We have some new aerodynamic parts at the back of the car, some at the front, which still need to be evaluated but mainly the most important one is the one at the rear, Gutierrez said. The target is to attack the weaknesses of the car, mainly at the end of braking and turning the corner, so if the things work as expected as they should, it will give us more confidence to extract much more from the car. Its a really good thing to have.We have the upgraded engine from Monza, the team is pushing hard on those areas to really improve the weaknesses annd I think if everything works as expected it should give us a reasonable step. Cheap Soccer Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. utierrez has recorded four 11th place finishes but is yet to score a point in 2016, compared to the 28 scored by teammate Romain Grosjean which have propelled Haas up to eighth in the constructors standings in its debut campaign.

I dont think its only coming from myself. Of course I want to achieve this and I want to get them but its just the matter of having the right opportunities.Its pretty tough when people say and speak things, if you really consider taking away the races that I had all the problems in the car, the mechanical failures, things like that, and then you add all the races that I finished with the car complete, lets say -- in a good shape technically -- then thats what should be judged. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

Cheap Swingman Suns Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . Hamilton had been as low as fourth before his final flying lap at the end of Q3 after an error on his initial flier but produced the fastest lap ever recorded at the Bahrain International Circuit to pip Rosberg by less than a tenth of a second.That was a sexy lap! a jubilant Hamilton shouted as he crossed the line. Lewis just did a fantastic job, conceded Rosberg. My lap felt good, I actually thought I was on pole.Hamiltons pole position is the 51st of his career and was the undisputed highlight of a qualifying hour that otherwise fell flat with only one flying lap set in the final six minutes of Q2.It was a relief to finally put a lap together, Hamilton told Sky Sports F1. On the lap before I was down already to Nico and then l went wide and lost it, so I knew that l had to go out and get everything more on that final lap. Qualy Report: Hamiltons world class lap Lewis Hamilton denied Nico Rosberg at the last in Bahrain - but elimination rules flopped again It means a lot - it felt like my first pole. I nearly lost my voice [on the warm-down lap], it was like scoring a goal!Rosberg had been the faster Mercedes driver throughout practice and appeared set to claim his seventh pole position in the last eight Saturday outings.Its actually the only lap Ive put together all weekend, and it was the last one. I hope thats the first of many, added Hamilton.Throughout practice I was going round and it wasnt quite perfect and Nico would be a tenth ahead. So to finally put it together and knowing that l had to improve after going off on my first flying lap, so happy. Hamilton also divulged that he had set his Mercedes car up with race strategy in mind.I think thats maybe why Ive been struggling against Nico this weekend, he suggested.Both Mercedes cars were beaten off the line in Melbourne by Ferrari and Hamilton, who also claimed pole in Australia from Rosberg, has admitted that race starts remain an area of concern for the world champions.Its always important to get a good start. Its something weve been working on, but its only been a couple of weeks so whether or not weve made big improvements I highly doubt it, but hopefully it is better, he said.Rosberg, meanwhile, was left to rue his last-gasp defeat by such a narrow margin.I was 100 per cent sure l had pole so that was disappointing, the German admitted. But if there is one track where pole isnt important it is here in Bahrain and so much can happen. It will be an interesting race with a lot of opportunities.The Bahrain GP is live on Sky Sports F1 on Sunday.

SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. http://www.cheapsunsjerseys.com//>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . PETERSBURG, Fla. TORONTO -- After watching DeMar DeRozan drop more than 30 points on an opponent for the eighth time in nine games this season, Toronto coach Dwane Casey suggested that the game keeps slowing down for the NBAs leading scorer.DeRozan, who is averaging 34.0 points after scoring 33 in the Raptors 118-107 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday night, agreed.Yeah, I always find ways I can be better mentally, physically, skill-wise, he said following Torontos fourth straight win over New York. I always try to find something in the offseason and during the season as well.The outburst put DeRozan in an exclusive club. In the last 50 years, only Michael Jordan, World B. Free and Tiny Archibald have started a season registering 30-plus points in eight of the first nine games.In a see-saw game that saw 27 lead changes, DeRozan provided a reassuring presence for a team that started one rookie in Pascal Siakum and a second-year player in Norman Powell, who had 19 points.Point guard Kyle Lowry, who scored what turned out to be the winning points with 1:41 to play on a driving layup, pointed to DeRozans fourth-quarter, 4-point play.He was serenaded with chants of MVP! MVP! from the crowd as he put the game out of reach with 26.8 seconds to go.Were just going to keep riding that coattail, Lowry said. Were going to keep letting him do him. Were going to rally around him and keep helping him be great.Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points, while Kristaps Porzingis and Derrick Rose added 21 apiece. Rose, who seemed to be favoring his shoulder at points in the game, said it was just a stinger.Losing, it hurts, period, Rose said after the Knicks fell to 3-6. Ive never been a loser in my life and just got to figure ways out. Were closer, a lot closer and the effort that we had, we need to find that effort for the entire game.TIP-INSKnicks: New York is 0-2 in the back end of back-to-back games. It has 15 such games this season. . The Knicks havent won a season series against thhe Raptors since the 2010-11 season, and are 4-9 against them in their last 13 games. Cheap NBA Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">.

Former Raptor Muggsy Bogues was in attendance, throwing signed basketballs into the crowd. . Saturdays game marked the first of 16 Atlantic Division games for Toronto. The Raptors have not lost a season series with their division rivals since 2012-13.OLD IS NEW AGAINThe Raptors wore blue throwback jerseys in tribute to the Toronto Huskies of the old Basketball Association of America, which eventually became the NBA. The Huskies hosted the New York Knickerbockers on Nov. 1, 1946, at Torontos Maple Leaf Gardens in what the NBA regards as the first game in its history, won 68-66 by the Knicks. The Raptors will wear the Huskies blue uniforms and play on a specially designed Huskies court on six occasions this season, and now have a 5-3 record when wearing the throwback uniforms.THEY SAID ITPowell on guarding Anthony: Im a student of the game. I watch a lot of film, especially guys I look up to. Ive watched so much Carmelo Anthony in my day, played with him so much in (video game NBA) 2K. The Knicks were my favorite team.STRO SHOWToronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman watched the game from courtside, and threw a few signed mini basketballs into the crowd, launching a couple of the souvenirs all the way to the back of the lower bowl.UP NEXTKnicks: Host Dallas on Monday looking to snap a five-game losing streak against the Mavericks, who have won three straight at Madison Square Garden.Raptors: Visit Cleveland on Tuesday for the first time since last seasons Eastern Conference finals.

Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .Kumara, a well-built seamer from Kandy, claimed four more wickets as England could only manage 192 in their second innings. That completed match figures of 11 for 134, and left Sri Lanka needing only 94 for victory.They knocked them off for the loss of three wickets, two of them to Warwickshire seamer George Panayi, meaning they win the two-match series 1-0 after England enjoyed the better of a rain-affected draw in Cambridge last week.Englands last home four-day defeat had also come against Sri Lanka in Northampton in 2010, when a team including Joe Root and Jake Ball were beaten by 199 runs.They made a promising start on the third morning after resuming their second innings on 24 for 1, with Olly Westbury and George Hankins surviving a searching examination from Kumara and Jehan Daniel who both generated consistent and considerable in-swing to the right-handers.It was the introduction of spin which broke the stand as Hankins was lbw trying to sweep the slow-left-arm of Praveen Jayawickrama, ending a restrained innings of 20 from 70 balls from the Gloucestershire batsman.The next blow to England was self-inflicted as Westbury, the Worcestershire opener who made 196 in Cambridge and had compiled a patient 41 from 109 balls, was run out by a call for a quick single from George Bartlett.Next ball, Westburys Worcestershire team-mate Josh Dell became the first of two England batsmen to complete a pair, although he was unlucky to be brilliantly caught at silly point as he pushed forward to Jayawickrama.That left England on 89 for 4, still 10 runs behind. Bartlett, the Somerset batsman who also scored a century at Fenners, did his best to repair the damage by making 26, before edging a superb delivery from Kumara to third slip soon after lunch.Hampshires Josh McCoy completed Englands second pair when he was bowled by Kumara, but Surreys wicketkeeper Ollie Pope made a promising 23 from 31 balls until he was also trapped lbw by Jayawickrama.The Essex seamer Aaron Beard then joined Yorkshires Ed Barnes to put on 48 for the eighth wicket, the second highest stand of the innings. But Beard chipped a full toss from Sri Lankas captain Charith Asalanka to mid-off, and George Panayi edged the next ball to slip.Amar Virdi was the last man out, leaving Barnes unbeaten on 18. The Yorkshireman also claimed a wicket in Sri Lankas second innings, as Dilan Jayalath holed out to Bartlett on the square leg boundary, and Panayi briefly raised Englands hopes when he trapped Avishka Fernando lbw with his fourth ball.But Sri Lankas captain Charith Asalanka ensured there were no nerves in such a small chase by cracking 40 from 18 balls including two sixes, one of which soared over the signal box at Wantage Road and into the gardens of Clarke Road.England have the chance to hit back in a three-match Royal London One-Day Series which starts at Wormsley next Wednesday, and ends with a day-night game at the Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence on Tuesday week which will be televised live by Sky Sports.Cheap Timberwolves Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Wholesale Timberwolves Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

Then Edmond reached high to grab a throw in the end zone from NC States Ryan Finley, and Clemson escaped with its path to the ACC title game and the College Football Playoffs still all clear.It wasnt the prettiest game for Clemson, which gave up 397 yards and turned it over four times -- including Watsons first-ever pick six -- to the Wolfpack (4-2, 1-1).Clemson took a big hit early on when running back Wayne Gallman came out, looking woozy and out of it as he headed to the locker room. Gallman, the teams leading rusher, did not return.Receiver Hunter Renfrow, who had six catches in his first game since Sept. 10 because of a broken hand, was hurt in the fourth quarter and came out the rest of the way.NO. 1 ALABAMA 49, NO. 9 TENNESSEE 10KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Jalen Hurts and Bo Scarbrough each ran for over 100 yards and Alabama again got points from its defense and special teams.Alabama (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) has won 19 straight overall and 10 in a row in theannual series.

MANCHESTER, England -- Jose Mourinho is reeling from his heaviest loss in English soccer. Pep Guardiola has matched the longest winless run of his coaching career.Things are about to get worse for one of the managers when Manchester United and Manchester City meet Wednesday in the fourth round of the English League Cup. Its the second head-to-head already this season between two coaches who had an often-tempestuous rivalry in Spain.Of the four competitions United and City are involved in this season, the League Cup is the lowest priority for both managers, but the importance of a victory at Old Trafford has intensified because of their teams current form.United has won just one of its last six Premier League games and lost 4-0 at Chelsea on Sunday, a personal embarrassment for Mourinho at his former club. City is winless in its last five matches in all competitions, matching Guardiolas career low at Barcelona in 2009.For that reason, Mourinho and Guardiola may choose not to rotate their lineups as much as they might have wanted to.Young players have to be involved in the teams good moment, and you cannot forget now the last five games we didnt win, Guardiola said Tuesday. To help the young players, you have to be involved in a good environment, with people with experience.To put three, four, five young players in at the same time is not a good idea because we have to protect them.The blue half of Manchester has had local bragging rights since Sept. 10, when City beat United 2-1 at Old Trafford in a performance that earned widespread praise for a side in the middle of a club-record winning run of 10 games. That game also underlined that United was still a work in progress under Mourinho, as subsequent results have proved.We are really, really sad, Mourinho said. But this (current period) is not for kids, this is for men.There is possibly more pressure on Mourinho on Wednesday. While Citys displays havent been that bad during its winless streak, Mourinho will want a signature victory to disprove growing concerns that he may not be able to stop the slide at United since Alex Fergusons retirement in 2013.If Mourinho plays a sttrong team and loses a derby for the second time in under two months, he will face even more criticism.ddddddddddddHeres a look at some problem areas affecting the two teams, and where Mourinho and Guardiola might turn:---MANCHESTER UNITEDThere are issues for Mourinho throughout the team.Up front, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has regressed since opening the season with four goals in his first three games. He has scored just once in his last eight games in all competitions and may be left out to give Marcus Rashford a game as lone striker.Paul Pogba has stood out in only a few games since his arrival in August for a world-record fee of $116 million -- and not yet in a game of any real magnitude. Mourinho hasnt found the best position for the France international, who flourished on the left of a three-man central midfield for former team Juventus and has been tried in attacking and defensive midfield positions at United. Mourinho must decide if Pogba starts a fourth game in 10 days.Uniteds defense has now been hit by a suspected knee ligament injury to center back Eric Bailly, possibly the teams best defender this season. In a message to his club and country fans, the Ivory Coast international said on his Facebook page Tuesday: I hope to be able to play again for United and The Elephants before two months, God willing.Daley Blind and Chris Smalling may start at center back.---MANCHESTER CITYDefense is Guardiolas biggest area of concern after five winless games in which mistakes at the back have been ruthlessly punished by Celtic, Tottenham, Everton, Barcelona and Southampton.Guardiola has played three at the back in the last two league games, and may return to a four-man defense and play youngster Pablo Maffeo at right back. Another 19-year-old player, Aleix Garcia, is set to play in central midfield as Kevin De Bruyne is out with a calf injury.Sergio Aguero hasnt started two of Citys last three games, so may be one of the senior stars in the starting side. Otherwise, Kelechi Iheanacho will lead the attack. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
