Lovie Smith is back in school again. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale .The new coach at Illinois, after nearly 20 years in the NFL, has been enjoying the unique environment this week with the season opener against Murray State on Saturday fast approaching.With the students being here, yes, there is a lot of excitement, Smith said. Yes, Ive seen it. Ive heard it. Theyre vocal in their support of our football team, and theres no more exciting place to be than on a college campus game day.Two other newbies will formally take over their teams on Saturday, too, with coach Chris Ash taking Rutgers across three time zones to play at Washington on Saturday and D.J. Durkins Maryland squad hosting Howard.Also of note from around the Big Ten, from the coaches conference call with reporters on Tuesday:QUIET ABOUT THE QUARTERBACKMichigan coach Jim Harbaugh once again declined to identify his starting quarterback for the opener on Saturday against Hawaii. It is expected to be either Wilton Speight or John OKorn.The quarterbacks know, and the team knows, Harbaugh said, and the team knows and were not doing that for public consumption.By contrast, rival Michigan State awarded Tyler OConnor the job last week and made the news public. Coach Mark Dantonio held a competition during camp, rotating turns with the first team, but OConnor was considered the front-runner after filling in for Connor Cook last November.I wanted to give everyone opportunities of feeling the pressure of being a starting quarterback, Dantonio said.BUCKEYES, IN THE BACKOhio State has decided to list sophomores Marshon Lattimore and Denzel Ward as co-starters at cornerback for the opener against Bowling Green on Saturday, opposite junior Gareon Conley. Coach Urban Meyer said all three of them will play regularly.KICKING ITAfter losing 21 seniors from the Big Ten West Division champion team that reached the Rose Bowl, Iowa will naturally have more underclassmen on the field this season. One of them will be place kicker Keith Duncan, a walk-on freshman from North Carolina. Coach Kirk Ferentz confirmed Tuesday he has won the job for now.We may continue this evaluation into September, but thus far hes been the most consistent, Ferentz said.Another true freshman on the verge of a significant role is tight end Noah Fant, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound native of Omaha, Nebraska, who has worked his way into the mix in light of senior departures and incumbent injuries. Ferentz said the coaches are leaning against giving Fant a redshirt.Probably like most of our freshmen, we might take it up until game time or even over the next couple weeks to make a decision, Ferentz said, but I think theres a good chance hell be on the field this weekend and beyond.ALOHA, AGAIN?Harbaugh, whose 1986 Wolverines team won 27-10 at Hawaii to finish the regular season when he was the quarterback, said hed definitely consider a return visit to the island state for his program in the future. Michigan also traveled across the Pacific Ocean in 1998, when a quarterback named Tom Brady led the Wolverines to a 48-17 victory over the Rainbow Warriors.HARDIN HEALTHYMinnesota will have cornerback KiAnte Hardin available on Thursday night against Oregon State, coach Tracy Claeys said. Hardin, a sophomore, has missed some time due to an unspecified injury and was not listed on the official depth chart for the Beavers game. Hardin has been competing with redshirt freshman Ray Buford at the spot opposite senior Jalen Myrick, with both starters from last year currently with NFL teams: Eric Murray and Briean Boddy-Calhoun.Tight end Brandon Lingen (shoulder) and running back Shannon Brooks (foot) are two key players who could be on the sideline for the opener, however. China NHL Jerseys .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. Cheap Hockey Jerseys China . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. http://www.cheapjerseyschinanhl.com/ . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- Its been nearly 90 years since Haiti earned a medal at the Olympic Games. But swimmer Frantz Mike Itelord Dorsainvil is aiming to break that dry spell.The lanky 25-year-old swimmer who only began to swim competitively six years ago is arguably the most unlikely Olympian on Haitis small team. But he doesnt lack for confidence.I will be giving all my effort to make sure I bring back a medal for my homeland, Dorsainvil said after a recent day of training.The swimmer, who has never lived abroad -- unlike many athletes who typically represent the impoverished Caribbean country -- trains in an 18-meter long pool. An Olympic-sized pool is 50 meters.I have to do six laps just to make 100 meters. I go back and forth, back and forth, he laughed during a phone interview from the pool in Carrefour on the outskirts of the capital Port-au-Prince. Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic. Swimming barely exists as a sport in Haiti, where there are few pools. Many Haitians, even some who fish for a living, never learn how to swim.Dorsainvil is hoping to change all that.He says hes hopeful that the sport will take off in his Caribbean homeland if he and his teammate, 19-year-old Haitian-American Naomy GrandPierre, are able to win a medal. GrandPierre is a student at the University of Chicago and will be Haitis first Olympic female swimmer.I hope we can help make swimming popular here. Its disappointing that so many Haitian people are not able to swim, Dorsainvil said.
