Jamal Murray Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .Hardly pedaling, the overall leaders in the Tour de France spent most of Mondays third stage chatting to one another and riding at such a leisurely pace that they could have fit right in on a town bike path.It was a very relaxed day for us. We went slow. It was nice, said Sagan, who playfully bumped shoulders with some of the other riders just to keep things interesting. I was thinking one moment we were going to take the coffee like old time.The morning caffeine didnt kick in until the very end of the lengthy and mostly flat 223.5-kilometer (139-mile) leg from Granville to Angers.That was when Mark Cavendish showed off his sprinting experience by edging German rival Andre Greipel in a photo finish.Having also won Saturdays opening stage at Utah Beach, it was Cavendishs second victory in this Tour and 28th overall. The British rider with Team Dimension Data matched five-time Tour champion Bernard Hinault for second on the all-time list behind Eddy Merckx, who had a record 34 stage wins at the Tour.To even be mentioned in the same sentence as Bernard Hinault is something that I couldnt even have dreamed of, Cavendish said. But Im never going to compare myself to him.On a very slightly uphill finish, Cavendish kept pedaling to the line while Greipel, who was ahead, put his head down a bit too early.Neither rider knew who won immediately.Greipel started celebrating, raising his left finger to the sky, but then quickly took it down. Cavendish clenched his fist briefly and then just fiddled with his bike computer until the victory was confirmed -- then started hugging his teammates.I normally know when I win or I lose. When I crossed the line, I kind of knew I got it today, Cavendish said. But I was quite lucky to just get him.On the winners podium, Cavendish was greeted by the 61-year-old Hinault, now at his final Tour in an ambassador role.Bryan Coquard of France crossed third, while Sagan was fourth.I just made one mistake and it was a kind of reflex to go into the biggest gear, Greipel said. If I had kept it in the gear I had then I think I would have made it.Sagan, the world champion from Slovakia who took the yellow jersey on Sunday, remained eight seconds ahead of Julian Alaphilippe of France and 10 seconds in front of Alejandro Valverde of Spain in the overall standings.Defending champion Chris Froome moved up one spot to fourth, 14 seconds behind Sagan.Cavendish clocked nearly six hours as the Tour moved out of the Normandy region over a southeasterly route that concluded in Angers, in the Anjou region of the Loire valley.The stage began on the Normandy coast. Nicknamed the Monaco of the north, Granville was built on a rock and is known for its casino.Angers is twinned with Austin, Texas, the home of Lance Armstrong.Armindo Fonseca, a French rider with the Fortuneo-Vital Concept team, attacked at the opening flag and established a lead of more than 10 minutes at one point.For much of the stage, the peloton rode at 33 kph (20 mph) -- well below the predicted time table, which was based on an average speed of 39-43 kph (24-27 mph).It was a rest day for everyone, Sagan said. Just the last 20-30 kilometers were hard.Taking advantage of the pelotons pace, French rider Thomas Voeckler attacked midway through the stage and quickly bridged the gap to join Fonseca in the lead.The duo was caught by the main pack with eight kilometers (5 miles) to go.Stage 4 Tuesday is the races longest, a slightly more challenging 237.5 (148-mile) leg from Saumur to Limoges.If the stage is shorter well be faster, Sagan said. Tomorrow will be a long day.The first mountain stage comes in Stage 5 on Wednesday in the Massif Central.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: Gary Harris Nuggets Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. Allen Iverson Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the leagues broadcast and multimedia rights.>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

BARCELONA, Spain -- A Madrid court dismissed a case into alleged irregularities regarding the transfer of Brazil striker Neymar to Spanish club Barcelona.On Friday, National Court judge Jose de la Mata shelved the complaint brought against Neymar, his father, and Barcelona by Brazilian investment group DIS.DIS was entitled to 40 percent of Neymars transfer from Brazilian club Santos in 2013, but it claimed it received a smaller compensation than it should have because part of the transfer fee was concealed.Neymar and his father, who acts as his agent, and Barcelonas current president and predecessor all denied any wrongdoing when they appeared in court in February.In June, Barcelona paid a fine of 5.5 million euros ($6.2 million) to settle a separate case brought against the club by Spains tax authorities. In that agreement, the club acknowledged it made an error in the fiscal planning of the players transfer.On signing Neymar in 2013, Barcelona said the price of his transfer was 57.1 million euros ($74 million). Of the initial transfer fee, Brazilian club Santos received 17.1 million euros ($23 million) while Neymars father, who also goes by Neymar, earned 40 million euros ($55 million).The actuall cost of Neymars transfer, including a player bonus and the clubs complementary payment of 13. Custom Nuggets Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. 55 million euros ($18.6 million) to Spains tax office, means it likely exceeds the record 100 million euros spent by Real Madrid to acquire Gareth Bale.Last week, Barcelona announced Neymar agreed to a contract extension that will keep him at the Spanish champions through 2021.In his three seasons, the 24-year-old Neymar has 85 goals in 141 games, forming a potent strike trio with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.Hes helped the team win two Spanish leagues, two Copa del Reys, the Champions League, the European Super Cup, the Spanish Super Cup, and the Club World Cup.This week, a separate court based in Barcelona found Messi and his father guilty of defrauding the state of 4.1 million euros ($4.6 million) in unpaid taxes from earnings of image rights.They were sentenced to 21 months in prison, but neither man is expected to go to jail because in Spain sentences of less than two years for first offences are usually suspended. Messi and his father have appealed the ruling. 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">Andy Murray has enjoyed a brilliant 2016, adding the world number one ranking to his second Wimbledon and Olympic titles. 

Jourdan Lewis Cowboys Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . We look back on his year... Britains three-time Grand Slam champion has gone from strength to strength in 2016 and having set himself the target of becoming world No 1 in 2017, he achieved the feat early courtesy of his progress and Novak Djokovics quarter-final defeat at the Paris Masters.A sparkling run of form since winning the Rome Masters in May - his first title of the year - has seen the Scot record suffer just four defeats in the intervening months, as well as landing seven titles and a couple of runners-up finishes. Murray has also recorded a seasons best tally of victories, his Paris win over Tomas Berdych taking him to 72 for the season, bettering the 71 he achieved in 2015.As well as becoming a father, the high points on the court have been a second Wimbledon title and a second Olympic gold medal, but Murrays story is a long one that started in the tortuous winter months of his training camp in Miami and yielded an Australian Open final...More Aussie anguish Murray was left reflecting on another defeat to Djokovic in the first major of the year With his wife, Kim, expecting the arrival of the couples first child, Murrays mind was sure to be elsewhere. A renowned family man having spent his winter training in South Florida, he went to the Aussie Open with no pre-tournament practice other than an exhibition but reached a fifth final in Australia.He had dropped two sets on route to the semi-final, where he faced Milos Raonic, and, but for injury, the Canadian may have turned a 2-1 advantage into victory. Murray rallied to set up another Grand Slam showdown with Djokovic.The Serb claimed a fifth crown in Melbourne - four of them with victory over Murray - and a tearful Murray was left to reflect on an encouraging start, a flight home and the prospect of becoming a father.In his speech, he said: And to my wife Kim, Im sure shes going to be watching back home just now. Youve been a legend the last few weeks. Thank you for your support and Ill be on the next flight home.Slow start Murray suffered a frustrating defeat to Federico Delbonis at Indian Wells As expected, Murray took an extended break to enjoy the birth of his daughter, Sophia, and he resurfaced to win his two singles rubbers in Great Britains Davis Cup match against Japan after a month off.The following week, he headed to America for the traditional start to the Masters 1000 Series, with back-to-back tournaments in California and Florida.Indian Wells has been a friend to Murray with just one final to his name, but a shock third-round exit to world No 53 Federico Delbonis was not on the cards - and neither was a loss to Grigor Dimitrov at the same stage in Miami, a tournament Murray has won twice before.Murray then began to show signs of form with a strong start to his clay-court season, reaching the semi-final in Monte Carlo before a defeat to Rafael Nadal, who went on to claim his ninth title at the tournament.The Scot made amends in Madrid a few weeks later, beating Nadal in the last four before a three-set defeat to Djokovic in the final.Mauresmo split Murray and Amelie Mauresmos two-year partnership ended after the Madrid Masters in May Defeat on the Spanish dirt saw Murray lose his world No 2 ranking and the news soon followed that he was to split with coach Amelie Mauresmo after almost two years.Although Mauresmo went on to make some comments about Murrays on-court behaviour, the Scot had only positive things to say: Shes been a calming influence in the team and we will all miss having her around.Ill take some time to consider the next steps and how we progress from here, but Id like to thank her for everything she has done. Shes been an invaluable member of the team.Murray headed off to the Rome Masters the following week without a coach and it was there the golden run was to begin. He eased to another final showdown with Djokovic without dropping a set.A magnificent match saw Murray claim his first title in the Italian capital with a 6-3 6-3 win over the world No 1 and he would head to Roland Garros and the French Open boosted by a notable win against Djokovic. Murray beat Novak Djokovic to claim the Rome Masters title in May After three semi-final appearances in Paris, Murray went on to make a first final, but standing in his way again would be Djokovic. Murray, inspired by his Rome efforts, took the first set.However, with Djokovic aiming for a career Grand Slam, Murray was to slump to another defeat to the Serb who claimed his 12th major title and would hold all four major titles at the same time.A familiar face Ivan Lendls return to the Murray camp was confirmed ahead of the Aegon Championships at Queens in June With the grass court season in sight and an impressive clay-court season behind him, Murray was to turn to a familiar face before the Aegon Championships at Queens Club.Ivan Lendl returned to the Murray camp. The man who had been in the box when Murray claimed his first and second Grand Slam titles as well as Olympic gold would take up a familiar role alongside Murray for the Grand Slams and training blocks. Murray responded with a second title of the year The result was instant as Murray claimed his sixth title at Queens, recovering from a set down to beat Milos Raonic in the final. He headed to Wimbledon with hopes high of a third Grand Slam title.Grand Slam glory Murray celebrates his second Wimbledon title on Centre Court Straight-sets wins over fellow Brit Liam Broady, Yen Hsun Lu and John Millman at Wimbledon set up a last-16 clash with the enigmatic Nick Kyrgios. The Aussie was dispatched in three uncomplicated sets and an untroubled Murray was into the last eight again, while Djokovics troubles were to begin with a third-round defeat to Sam Querrey.Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was the opponent, and when Murray eased into a two-set lead, Britain relaxed. However, Tsonga was inspired and reeled off the next two sets to force a fifth, but Murray kept his cool and got the job done.A routine win over Tomas Berdych followed and Milos Raonic lay in wait as Murray made an 11th Grand Slam final but for the first time would face an opponent that was not Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic.The result was emphatic as Murray claimed Grand Slam title No 3 with a 6-4 7-6 7-6 victory.Golden summer Murray enjoyed a well-deserved summer off with the break seemingly invigorating the 29-year-old, who rather than slowing down, picked up the pace for what would become the run of his career.As a fan of team sports, he made no secret of his desire for more Olympic success and having claimed the Olympic mens singles gold medal on Wimbledons Centre Court at London 2012, he headed to Rio de Janeiro 2016 in spectacular form (one defeat in 24 matches) and confident of a second title. Murray carried the GB flag at the Olympic opening ceremony The Games got off to the perfect start when he was selected to be the flag bearer for Team GB at the opening ceremony, and he went on to defend the gold medalViktor Troicki, Juan Monaco, Fabio Fognini, Steve Johnson and Kei Nishikori were all dispatched as part of Murrays brilliant run to the final. There, he ran into Juan Martin del Potro, who had beaten world No 1 Djokovic in the first round.The Argentine proved a tough nut to crack before Murray eventually prevailed in a near four-hour four-set marathon 7-5 4-6 6-2 7-5. Murray and Juan Martin del Potro played out a memorable Olympic final Targeting Novak Murray celebrates his China Open title With a third Grand Slam in the bag and a second Olympic gold around his neck, Murray re-evaluated his goals and set his sights on the seemingly impossible task of overhauling Djokovic at the top of the rankings.Amazingly, after his draining success in Rio de Janeiro, he was back in action the following week at the Cincinnati Masters, where he progressed to the final without dropping a set before losing to Marin Cilic in the final.Murray returned to Grand Slam action in New York but he suffered another early exit. His quarter-final defeat to Nishikori meant he had not gone beyond the last eight at Flushing Meadows since his 2012 Grand Slam breakthrough. Murrays major season ended with US Open quarter-final defeat to Kei Nishikori After Great Britains Davis Cup defeat to Argentina, which included a loss as Del Potro gained his revenge, back-to-back titles in Asia took Murray to within striking distance of Djokovic, whose second half of the season did not match the heights of the first. Highlights of Bautista Agut v Murray in the Shanghai Masters final in October Murrays Shanghai victory took him to six titles in a year for the first time since 2009, and he added number seven in Vienna with a dominant display to head to the Paris Masters on the back of three successive tournament victories and within striking distance of Djokovic.When the Serb crashed to a straight-sets defeat to Marin Cilic in the last eight, Murray followed up with victory over Berdych before claiming top spot when Raonic withdrew from their semi-final.His form over the second half of the season has strengthened claims that Murray is now the best player in the world - and he has the ranking to prove it. The new challenge is whether can he end the year in that position and achieve the longevity that has made his rivals legends in the game.

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">MINNEAPOLIS -- The entire Minnesota football team said Thursday that it is boycotting all football activities, which could include its bowl game, until it gets satisfactory answers from the university about the suspension of 10 players. 

Malik Hooker Youth Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .The school suspended the players Tuesday after an internal investigation into a sexual assault case. Police declined to arrest or charge any of the players, but the school suspended them based on its own standards for conduct.The teams players said they havent ruled out skipping the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 against Washington State in San Diego. They asked the bowls committee to be patient while they work through the situation.The boycott will remain in effect until due process is followed and the suspensions for all 10 players are lifted, senior receiver Drew Wolitarsky said, reading from a prepared statement while flanked by all of his teammates. We further request that (President Eric) Kaler and (athletic director Mark) Coyle (apologize) and demand that these leaders are held accountable for their actions. This decision for the players to take this stance is not easy, but important to preserve the integrity of the program and ourselves.The university announced the suspensions Tuesday night without disclosing why. The incident at an off-campus apartment in September led to three-game suspensions of four of the players earlier this season. Another six were added to that list this week after the internal investigation for reasons that remain unclear.A joint statement issued by Kaler and Coyle on Thursday night said the schools decision was based on facts and is reflective of the universitys values.We understand that a lot of confusion and frustration exists as a result of this weeks suspension of ten Gopher football players from all team activities, the statement read. The reality is that not everyone can have all of the facts, and unfortunately the university cannot share more information due to federal laws regarding student privacy.Kaler and Coyle said they want to continue an open dialogue with our players.Ray Buford Sr., the father of defensive back Ray Buford Jr., said the new suspensions resulted from an investigation by the universitys Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action that was separate from earlier investigations into the alleged assault in the early hours of Sept. 3.Buford Jr., KiAnte Hardin, Dior Johnson and Tamarion Johnson were suspended for three games when their names came up in the police investigation. The players were not arrested, prosecutors decided not to press charges and the players returned to the team. The restraining order was lifted after a settlement on Nov. 2.The other six players are defensive backs Antonio Shenault and Antoine Winfield Jr., running backs Carlton Djam and Kobe McCrary, and quarterbacks Seth Green and Mark Williams. Hardin and Winfield are starters and Buford and Shenault are key reserves.The school has recommended expulsion for Buford, Hardin, Dior Johnson, Tamarion Johnson and Djam and one-year suspensions for the other five players.According to police records released Wednesday, the woman told police she was drunk when she was sexually assaulted in Djams apartment by several men, including some of the suspended players. She said her sexual contact with two men may have been consensual, but her contact with four of them was not. Several players told police it was consensual.The players boycotted practice Thursday, one day after meeting with Coyle. Then they all lined up in the teams indoor practice facility, wearing their maroon jerseys with gold numbers and vowing to stay united.When we had questions for him, he basically told us that he didnt have answers, Wolitarsky said. So that led us basically to believe that this is kind of unjust and he has the power to reverse this and he wont.In recent seasons, big-time college football teams have been much more aggressive about exercising their collective right to protest by threatening not to play when they are dissatisfied with issues they confront on campus.Just last season, more than 30 members of the Missouri football joined campus protests and threatened to boycott team activities unless school president Tim Wolfe resigned after his handling of several racially charged incidents on campus. The coaching staff and entire team threw support behind the boycott -- which could have threatened a game against BYU -- but the Tigers ended up never even missing a practice when Wolfe stepped down two days later.When asked if the Golden Gophers would boycott their bowl game, Wolitarsky said they would take it day by day.The thing of it is, all these kids reputations are destroyed, quarterback Mitch Leidner said. Their names are destroyed. Its extremely difficult to get back and its very unfair for them and thats why were sticking together through this thing.There has been some confusion about whether Gophers coach Tracy Claeys backed the decision to suspend the players or not. Coyle and Kaler said he was consulted, but the players said Thursday night they did not believe their coach had a say in the matter.Have never been more proud of our kids, Claeys tweeted. I respect their rights (and) support their effort to make a better world!Former Minnesota Vikings star cornerback Antoine Winfield Sr. said his son did nothing wrong and blistered university leadership for what he said was a lack of communication.If the president and athletic director keep their jobs, my son, Antoine Winfield Jr., will not attend the University of Minnesota, Winfield Sr. said.When asked if he was concerned about the threat of the university pulling their scholarships in reaction to this show of force, Wolitarsky struck a defiant tone.Were in this together, he said. What, are they going to pull 120 guys off the team? I mean, theyre not going to have a team if thats the case.Holiday Bowl executive director Mark Neville said they were monitoring it closely. A request for comment from the Big Ten was not immediately returned.Washington State sold out its 7,000-ticket allotment in less than two days and has already requested more.Getting a team to fill the bowl spot on short notice would be difficult, if not impossible. But the next team in line to receive a bid is Northern Illinois, which finished 5-7 but has the highest Academic Progress Rate among teams with that record.---AP College Football Writer Ralph D.

WACO, Texas -- Natalie Chou is growing more comfortable, and thats a welcome development for No. 3 Baylor.The freshman went 5 for 6 from 3-point range and finished with 15 points on Tuesday night, helping the Lady Bears to a 90-24 victory against Texas State.All it comes down to is confidence, Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. Even if she wouldve missed those shots, keep shooting it. The first part of the nonconference schedule she wouldnt even look at the basket. I can go get another player to do that. I brought her here to shoot the ball.The Lady Bears (10-1) shot 53 percent from the field and had six players score in double figures.

The good news is they dont face anyone the caliber of the Lady Bears for the rest of the regular season.Baylor: After an 88-66 victory at No. 24 Tennessee on Sunday, the Lady Bears used this game as an opportunity to get everybody playing time.

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">Hitting millionaires with fines that barely make a dent in their wallets doesnt measure up to the dents those players are making in opponents. 

Jayson Tatum Womens Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .Ejections and suspensions might be far more effective in the NFL.Already this season, weve seen enough egregious hits and subsequent fines to raise this question: Just how much are tacklers becoming more cautious when it comes to potentially questionable hits? The answer just might be: not at all.Its all about teaching it at a young age and kind of drilling it into guys, says Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall, a 13-year veteran. A lot of older guys who are there trying to kind of change the game as we go -- theyve been in it for so long, its hard to adjust.They can do whatever they want to do. I dont know whatll work. Taking a guys money hurts. Making him not play hurts. And it still doesnt stop it. We had a guy here a couple of years ago, Brandon Meriweather, who ended up getting suspended for a couple hits and he still attacked receivers the same way.Meriweather was in a vast minority, a headhunting safety. With its player safety initiatives and ramped-up penalties for illegal hits, the league and the players union have made headway.Still, when Broncos safety Darian Stewart has been in two games this month and gotten fined more than $27,000 for hits on quarterbacks, it takes the conversation in the direction of ejections and suspensions.In the past eight seasons, there have been 60 players expelled from games. Many of those have come for fighting. Others include contact with officials or ripping off an opponents helmet.But when Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. speared Panthers cornerback Josh Norman last December -- Beckhams third major penalty of the game -- there was no ejection.At least Beckham was suspended for his next game, and he felt like a turncoat. Maybe thats the best way to deliver a stronger message.I think its easy to get caught up in, `Oh, man, did you see three guys got hurt this week? Nothings working, says Bengals tackle Eric Winston, president of the NFLPA. And then you go four more weeks and nothing happens and no one says anything.Winston advises to accumulate data from an entire season before making any conclusions. But he also recognizes the need to monitor closely and punish the bad hits.Obviously were all trying to win, to make a living, he adds, but at the same time, we cant take those shots that are going to try to end someones career and someones season. While I dont always agree with the penalties, I do agree with the thought of, OK, weve got to change the way were playing.Stewart reasons that backing off as a defender is a recipe for getting hurt, too. He insists that youre not out there trying to head-hunt anybody.I look at it like this: Youve got to go full speed because any hesitation, youre liable to get hurt. Ill be damned if Ill get run over by a quarterback. So Im going to take my chance, but at the same time, just be smart.The smart route for the NFL appears obvious: heavier discipline for egregious incidents. Particularly for repeat offenders.If that means ejections and suspensions, so be it.Though the arguments brought by players against such sanctions are vociferous.You start ejecting people, you might as well turn the NFL into flag football, says Jets safety and special teams ace Rontez Miles. I mean, theres got to be some sort of contact. Ejecting people, that might be too much. Maybe after a second offense or something, or two or three times. But the first time? Youve got to let us play.Winston also notes the size of NFL rosters works against going the college route, where ejections are more common.While a lot of people have said, `Oh, thats the way theyve got to go, they have a lot of different roster rules in college, he says. Its a different game in a lot of ways. You just dont have extra safeties to throw in like a 90-man roster.Winston believes with enlightened coaching, there can be a trickle-down effect that makes the game safer on all levels. Players such as Miami receiver Jarvis Landry and Falcons QB Matt Schaub say it is a declining problem.Miles worries that ramped-up penalties will have unintended consequences.I dont think that would help because now youre taking us out of our natural habitats, Miles says. Its something that comes natural to us. We understand the rules and guys are trying (our) best to avoid those kinds of hits. At the same time, youve got 22 guys on the field, all grown men going full speed, sometimes hits like that are going to happen. That doesnt mean its intentional.It also doesnt mean it is underserving of an ejection or suspension.---AP Pro Football Writers Arnie Stapleton, Teresa M.

It also marks the first day commissioner Roger Goodell may grant his request to be reinstated. Smith applied for reinstatement to the NFL last month.In a YouTube video posted Wednesday, the Oakland Raiders linebacker discussed how he has kept a positive attitude during his banishment. In the interview conducted by ElefitTV, Smith was asked what advice he would give others who are facing adversity.Im going to speak for myself, because Im in that situation, Smith said. I wont take no for an answer. I wont be defeated.You have to understand that its your life. You cant let anybody control it no matter what they try to do to you. Most importantly, God put you here for a reason, so make the best out of your life and your situation and be a blessing to somebody else and show the world what youre worth.Jack Del Rio said earlier this month that he wanted Smith to focus on himself first before the Raiders coach would consider how he might fit with the defense if he is reinstated.Lets [help] this young man get his life in order first, Del Rio said. And then if he can do that, then we can talk about football.Smith reportedly entered a treatment program in the summer days after a Periscope video surfaced that purportedly shows an unidentified man and woman talking about a hand-rolled cigarette. Smith has denied it was him in the video.Smith spent time in rehab in 2013 and served a nine-game suspension in 2014. He was cut by the San Francisco 49ers during training camp in 2015 after his fifth arrest since coming into the league.The Raiders re-signed Smith to a two-year contract in April.

CHICAGO -- Penn State coach James Franklin sees an improved team in Happy Valley -- and a program that cant escape the shadow cast by the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.Franklin made some pointed comments about negative recruiting against the Nittany Lions, saying there are issues that need to be addressed possibly at the conference level.I think theres a fine line to that, he said at Big Ten Media Days on Monday. I think some things need to be addressed. I do think theres a line you do not cross. But I guess in some ways thats the nature of the beast. I think some people are going to look for weaknesses and try to take advantage of those. But to me, there is a line that you do not cross. Well see how that whole thing plays out. There is a time and a place for everything.Franklins comments came in the wake of recently disclosed allegations from men who have accused Sandusky of sexual abuse that raised fresh questions about what his fellow Penn State assistant coaches might have seen or known before his November 2011 arrest -- and why they have largely kept quiet. The allegations have also raised questions about just how far back late coach Joe Paterno became aware of the situation.Negative recruiting happens all over the country. Everyone is dealing with it, Franklin said.But other programs arent dealing with a situation like this one. Franklin said Nittany Lions coaches probably have to answer more tough questions than any other staff, particularly on the recruiting trail.When reports surface, he said he calls recruits as well as their families and coaches to answer questions they might have about the direction of the program.And he made a point to say Monday that it is headed in the right direction. Now that they are free of sanctions and back to the full 85 scholarships, Franklin insisted the Nittany Lions are ready to make a jump after going 7-6 and making bowl games each of his first two seasons.Theres very few programs that would have been able to come through what weve come through with the tyype of success that weve had, two bowl games in a row, he said. Jarrad Davis Youth Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. .

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">(Sports Network) - The Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays will close out a four-game weekend series on Sunday afternoon at the Rogers Centre. 

Jourdan Lewis Womens Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . Baltimore captured its second straight win in the series on Saturday, holding on for a 6-5 victory. It got things started off quickly in the bottom of the first inning by putting up three runs and led rest of the way. Adam Jones and Danny Valencia each homered for the second straight game. J.J. Hardy had two hits and two RBI, and Chris Davis knocked in another run to add to an RBI total that ranks second in the majors (46). "I just see the ball good here," said Jones, who now has 11 career homers at Rogers Centre. "I dont think its anything in particular. Its just baseball." The Orioles 68 home runs are the most in majors, with nine of those long balls coming in the first three games of this series. Freddy Garcia (1-2) earned his first win in an Orioles uniform, surrendering nine hits and two earned runs in five innings. Jim Johnson pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 15th save. For the Blue Jays, R.A. Dickeys (4-6) disappointing season continued. He lasted 6 2/3 innings, but he was roughed up for nine hits and six runs, raising his ERA to 4.85 in the process. "The journey is always ongoing but I certainly havent felt like I did last year," Dickey said. "Theres some concrete reasons for that and theres some reasons I need to iron out in the bullpen between outings." Adam Lind and Jose Bautista each collected three hits for the home team, while Emilio Bonifacio belted his second home run of the year. On Sunday, the Orioles will call on Miguel Gonzalez, who is 2-2 with a 4.25 ERA. He most recently had his strongest outing of the season, allowing five hits, no walks and two earned runs while striking out five in seven innings of work in a no-decision against the Yankees on May 21. Despite his modest numbers, Gonzalez has been a consistently reliable cog in the Orioles rotation. The right-hander has pitched into sixth inning in all seven starts and has yet to allow more than four earned runs in any outing. Gonzalez earned one of his two wins against the Blue Jays back on April 23, yielding five hits and three earned runs over six innings. Toronto will counter with Chad Jenkins, who was recalled in early May but has made just one appearance since. He made it count however, earning a win against the Red Sox on May 12, allowing two earned runs over five innings. Jenkins began the season on the DL in the minors and made just one start at Double-A New Hampshire before his call to the big club. The 2009 first-round pick made 13 appearances for the Blue Jays in 2012, going 1-3 with a 4.50 ERA. Baltimore took two of three from the Jays earlier in the year. Chidobe Awuzie Cowboys Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

I felt like I could hit the ball wherever I liked. It was one of those days where it was like, God, Im invincible today.What victory celebrations did you enjoy the most? Itd have to be after the Ashes in 2005. When else? Winning that series was such an amazing achievement and everything that followed was just great. Going round London, and meeting the Queen was incredible. It was one of those things where you just have to sit back, take it in and enjoy it.Who is the best coach you have played under?Duncan Fletcher was very good for me. He developed my game and always backed me. I always felt I had his support. The pair of us seem to connect well.What is the quickest spell you have ever faced?Brett Lee at Perth in the 2002 Ashes was rapid. It didnt help that I was playing particularly average at the time but one spell was so quick that it felt like he was bowling at the speed of light.

He always had to have the cups in a certain place. The toilet seat had to be in a particular position too. Us cricketers are a superstitious bunch and he was worse than anyone.Who is the biggest practical joker?Anthony McGrath. I played with him a few times for England and hes hilarious.

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">From watching football games at old Archbold Stadium to being on campus when the Carrier Dome opened, John Wildhacks affection for Syracuse University has only grown over the years. 

Chris Godwin Buccaneers Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .Thirty-six years after he graduated, Wildhack returned to his alma mater on Tuesday as its new athletic director and needed only four words to describe his state of mind.It feels so right, Wildhack said at an introductory news conference.Sporting an orange-and-blue-striped tie, Wildhack was introduced to a nearly full auditorium in the universitys football wing by Chancellor Kent Syverud, who chaired a search committee that included new football coach Dino Babers. A Buffalo native, Wildhack ends a 36-year tenure at ESPN, where he had risen to executive vice president for programming and production. He joined the cable sports network after graduating from Syracuse in 1980.Wildhack assumes a position vacated in early May by Mark Coyle, who came to Syracuse from Boise State but left after less than a year. Coyle bolted for the same position at the University of Minnesota.Syracuse likely wont have to worry about stability now. Wildhacks sister and brother also are Syracuse graduates, and his sister-in-law is a doctoral candidate at Syracuse. All were present Tuesday, along with Wildhacks wife, Amy, and their two young sons, Tommy and James. The couples oldest son, M.J., was back home working and unable to attend.Wildhack said his first priority would be to get to know his staff, both professionally and personally. And he had kind words for Babers, who was hired in December to replace Scott Shafer.I like the fact hes got a defined system thats had success, Wildhack said. I like Dinos style. He wants to be as fast as any team in the country. Weve got a great venue for that. Were the only domed stadium in a Power 5 conference. Theres a lot to like.Shafer was fired by Coyle last November after going 14-23 overall and 7-18 in the Atlantic Coast Conference in three seasons that saw attendance decline for home games in the Carrier Dome.Its important for us to market all the positives that we have, Wildhack said. We want to build a program that is going to have sustained success, so its got to be built the right way.Despite footballs troubles, Wildhack takes over athletics at a good time. The 2015-16 academic year was the most successful in the history of Syracuse athletics. The year included national titles in field hockey and cross country, a national runner-up finish in womens basketball, and trips to the Final Four in mens basketball, mens lacrosse, and mens soccer.Theres a lot in place here. That is exciting, Wildhack said. Theres been terrific success overall. How do we, as a staff, build that?Plans for a significant renovation of the Carrier Dome also are underway, and Wildhack is optimistic of the impact that will have.Its an iconic venue in all of America. Theres great equity in that, he said. Well go through the renovation. Itll be transformational.In March 2015, the NCAA levied sanctions on the athletic department after an eight-year investigation, citing in particular academic violations committed by football (under former coaches Paul Pasqualoni and Greg Robinson) and mens basketball (under Jim Boeheim).The university has since reorganized reporting lines for some areas within athletics to improve oversight, and Wildhack said that would remain paramount on his watch.Our department will be defined by integrity, he said.

CLEVELAND -- Hector Santiagos debut with the Twins did not go well on what was an otherwise successful series against the Indians.The left-hander gave up four runs over five innings in his first start with the team, allowing Cleveland to cruise to a 9-2 victory over Minnesota on Thursday.The Twins outscored the Indians 35-16 in winning the first three games of the series, but were unable to complete their first-ever four-game sweep in Cleveland, which leads the AL Central.Ill take three out of four anytime, especially against one of the best teams in the AL, said Minnesota second baseman Brian Dozier, who went 2 for 4 with his 22nd home run of the year. We were clicking on all cylinders here.When youve gone through a season like weve had, its tough, but I hope the younger guys gain a lot of confidence from the way we played.Doziers solo homer came off Indians starter Mike Clevinger and gave him longballs in three straight games. He also has a 13-game hitting streak and leads the majors with 15 home runs since June 19, including five in his last five contests.Brian is showing great pitch recognition and trust in his hands, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Hes had a real nice run for almost two months now.Santiago (10-5), who was acquired Monday in a four-player trade with the Angels, suffered his first loss since June 10. Carlos Santana hit a two-run shot and Jason Kipnis had a solo homer in ending his seven-game winning streak.It was good, I only made two bad pitches, Santiago said. Two cutters that stood in the middle of the plate, thats it.Joe Mauer had two hits, while Kurt Suzuki drove in Minnesotas other run with a single. Mauer batted .667 (12 for 18) with five doubles and six RBI in the series, but committed two costly baserunning mistakes in the finale.In the third, Mauer was ccaught off first on a lineout to center, ending the inning a split-second before Suzuki crossed home plate. Kendell Beckwith Womens Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Two innings later, Max Kepler punched a hit into the right field corner with Mauer on first. Kepler was about to slide into second when he realized that Mauer had stopped there, leading to Mauer being tagged out.Joe was involved in a few plays that hurt us, Molitor said. That second one wound up a long way from third base, so he could have put more pressure on the defense. You can always check up in a situation like that.Kepler went 1 for 4, completing the series 8 for 16 (.500) with eight runs, four homers and 10 RBI. He leads AL rookies in the latter two categories with 15 and 48, respectively.Twins first baseman Kennys Vargas was hitless in three at-bats, but received cheers after breaking his bat over his right thigh after an eighth-inning strikeout.HOT SEATTwins 3B Miguel Sano went 1 for 2, but is in a 4 for 28 slump (.143) and batting just .239 in his second season. He also has 15 errors. Molitor said Sanos work ethic needs improvement and wont rule out sending him to the minors. Weve had a lot of conversations this year, the manager said.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: 3B Trevor Plouffe (broken left rib) will be recalled Monday from his rehab assignment at Triple-A Rochester, barring an unexpected setback this weekend.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Ervin Santana opens a three-game series in Tampa Bay. He went six innings, allowing one earned run, in winning his last start July 31 against the White Sox.Indians: RHP Josh Tomlin, pitching on extended five days rest, takes the mound to begin a three-game set at the Yankees. He is 6-1 with a 2.75 ERA on the road.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 JerseysCheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
