CONCORD, N. Air Jordan Retro 13 For Sale .C. -- There is that lasting image of Dick Trickle in the Winston 500 lighting up a cigarette while driving his stock car with his knees during a caution lap. He places the cigarette through a hole he carved in his helmet for a quick toke and exhales. The green flag hits and out the window goes the cigarette butt and back to racing goes Trickle. "Dick always had a cigarette lighter in his car," said fellow NASCAR driver Geoff Bodine. Trickle was a unique driver with a unique name who found cult-like status before his death Thursday. Trickle, whose larger-than-life personality and penchant for fun won him legions of fans despite a lack of success beyond the nations small tracks, died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said. He was 71. The Lincoln County Sheriffs Office said authorities received a call believed to be from Trickle, who said "there would be a dead body and it would be his." Authorities tried to call the number back, but no one answered. Trickles body was found near his pickup truck at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Boger City, N.C., about 40 miles northwest of Charlotte. Sheriffs Lieutenant Tim Johnson said foul play was not suspected. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Dick Trickle on his passing today," NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France said. "Dick was a legend in the short-track racing community, particularly in his home state of Wisconsin, and he was a true fan favourite. Personalities like Dick Trickle helped shape our sport. He will be missed." Trickle earned his reputation as a successful short track driver before joining the Winston Cup series and earning rookie of the year in 1989 at age 48. He competed in more than 300 Cup races. Although he never won a Cup race and won only two Busch Series races, Trickle earned cult status in the 1990s. Former ESPN anchor Keith Olbermann would regularly mention where Trickle finished after talking about each NASCAR race. It caught on and drew snickers from race fans around the country. Bodine said there was only one way to describe Trickle, a native of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. "Fun," Bodine said. "Just plain fun." Trickle was never one to be told how to live his life. "Its all just sad," Bodine said in a telephone interview. "We dont understand why he would do this. Hopefully we will all learn why he would do that. There was something that triggered him to take his own life. We are all really saddened by this in the racing community." NASCAR does not keep track of short-track records, but according to the (Milwaukee) Journal-Sentinel, Trickle won more than 1,000 short-track races throughout the country during his prime. He was a seven-time winner in the regional ARTGO Challenge Series in the late 1970s and mid 80s. Trickle also captured the ASA AC-Delco Challenge Series in back-to-back years in 1984-85 before turning to Cup racing. "Dick Trickle was one of the best race drivers of the 80s, no one knew how many races he won," said Humpy Wheeler, the former president of Charlotte Motor Speedway. "He was right there with Red Farmer and other short track drivers -- the wins kind of got so big that they blended into each other. He was a product of the rich Wisconsin soil, where they race eight races a week in the season, and he could win all of them." Wheeler said he asked Trickle to try NASCAR in the 1980s, but Trickle initially declined because he was so successful on the short track circuit. "He could not make enough money then as he could on those Midwest tracks, so he deferred," Wheeler recalled. "For a guy who really won at least 700 races, I could see why. In those days, unless you were a top Cup driver, you couldnt win enough money to overcompensate for that." Trickle eventually did move to NASCAR, settling into Iron Station, N.C., where he lived for more than 20 years. Bodine said Trickle was full of stories and popular because of it. "People everywhere knew his name," Bodine said. "Thats why they used his likeness in that movie Days of Thunder. He was such a character." The main character in that popular niche racing movie, played by Tom Cruise, was named Cole Trickle. Bodine said that a few years ago he had to back out of a celebrity cruise for patients who were on kidney dialysis. He asked Trickle to fill in. "He made such an impression on people on that ship that everyone wanted to know when Dick was coming back," Bodine said. "They loved him. They tell me he was the last man to leave most of the bars on the ship and I believe it." Bodine also recalled inviting Trickle to compete in one of his bobsled events in 2004 at Lake Placid, N.Y. He said Trickle went down the first time and crashed. After being cleared by doctors to continue, Trickle tried again and crashed in the same place. "They were doing interviews with him on TV and he was like, I dont know what happened, I did the exact same thing I did the first time," Bodine said. "And were all looking at him like, Hey Dick, maybe that was the problem." Jordan 13 China Wholesale . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Jordan 13 Cheap China . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. http://www.cheapairjordan13.com/ .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHLs worst team. Baseballs history lends itself to great debates. We ask three of our baseball experts three tough questions: Who would you rather have, an all-time ace or an all-time center fielder? Which ace would you take to win one game? Which center fielder would you love to have as captain of your outfield for a decade??Doug Glanville, Tim Kurkjian and Jayson Stark take a swing at these questions.1. Would you rather have an all-time ace or an all-time center fielder?Doug Glanville, ESPN baseball analyst:?I would take the center fielder. It boils down to how we split hairs for MVP. Once in a while a pitcher wins one, but the weight leans heavily for the guy that is out there every single day. I am also considering his glove work where every play in the outfield is his responsibility. Hes the center of the action. I played some center field in my heyday and it was always nice when pitchers would tell you how valuable your defense was to the team. So, imagine when you had their back defensively and hit a little. Its a very important position.Tim Kurkjian,?ESPN.com senior writer:?I would take a star center fielder over an ace pitcher mainly because the center fielder plays every inning of every game, the ace only pitches every fifth day, or 100 years ago, every third day. The ace can dominate a game, a great center fielder can will multiple games in a week with his offense and his defense.Jayson Stark, ESPN.com senior writer:?Give me the center fielder. Absolutely. Now maybe, if it were Game 7 of the World Series, Id take the ace. But over the long haul? This is easy. Look at that list of center fielders. Five of our top 15 players of all time were center fielders. And every one of them -- Mays, Mantle, Cobb, Griffey and DiMaggio -- was a franchise changer. So is Mike Trout. So was Tris Speaker. These are 10-win players in a regular old season, more in a special season. Mays had eight seasons with a 9.0 WAR or better. Only one man in history had more: Babe Ruth. Sign me up for that!2. If you had to pick one ace to win one game, who would it be?Glanville: Give me Sandy Koufax. You could send the bullpen home. Carry one pitcher (Koufax) on your roster and load up on position players. He won the MVP twice in World Series play. He pitched through arthritis and still finished his career with three out of four seasons with more than 300 innings. I am not even sure which Koufax I would sic on my opponent. The Cy Young/MVP of 1963 with 40 starts and 11 shutouts and a 5.28 K/BB ratio? Or the 1965 27-complete game surgeon who blew away 382 hitters on 5.8 hits per 9 innings? No wait, the aging 30-year-old 1.73 ERA in 1966 who racked up another 27 complete games in 41 starts. (Hmmm, maybe not him -- he was only second in MVP voting.) And if you are asking. He had a 0.38 ERA in 24.1 innings of the 1965 World Series. He did it when it counted, too.Kurkjian: If I had to take one ace, Id take Pedro Martinez. In his prime, even if it was only for five years, a case could be made that he had the greatest fastball in the game, the greatest curveball and the greatest change-up. I cant remember any other pitcher in the games history that could make a claim to have the games three best pitches at any given time. The greatest game Ive ever seen pitched was Pedro against the Yankees in 1999, a one-hitter with 17 strikeouts at Yankee Stadium -- thhe most times the Yankees had ever struck out in a nine-inning game. Wholesale Jordan Retro 13. Pedro was so dominating that Yankee fans were cheering him on.Stark:?Bob Gibson. How much fun would it be to point that dude toward the mound in a must-win game? How good would you feel about checking out the look on Gibsons face and thinking the other team would be terrified just by the sight of him? Did you know hes the only pitcher in history with six postseason starts with a game score of at least 80 (and nobody else has more than four)? Did you know thats as many postseason starts that good as John Smoltz, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine combined? Did you know Gibson went 7-2, with a 1.89 ERA, in nine postseason starts and averaged nine innings a start? Did you know his 17-punchout game against the Tigers in the 1968 World Series is still the biggest strikeout game in postseason history, nearly 50 years later? Bob Gibson is/was the man. Top that one!3. If you had to pick on center fielder to anchor your D for a decade, who would it be?Glanville: I have to go with Willie Mays. The guy was a eight-tool player. Like Trout he had invisibility and teleportation. But Mays also had dazzleation. His offensive numbers put him in the top of the top all-time. The number of All-Star appearances made him one of the brightest in the constellation. If he melted all of his Gold Glove awards, he could start a new country with his face on the currency. His numbers are amazing: .302 lifetime average, 660 HRs, 338 SBs, 3,283 hits, .941 OPS. And he took a year off for military service in 1953. Forget anchoring my D for a decade, I would have taken two decades of Mays.Kurkjian: Willie Mays would be my defensive center fielder over a 10-year period, in an extremely close call over Andruw Jones. Mays speed and range were tremendous, his arm was well above average and he played the game defensively with grace and flair. That basket catch fascinated me as a kid. Ive always wondered why no one else ever tried it. Maybe because only the best of the best could do that.Stark:?Paul Blair. Id love to say Willie Mays, just because, well, hes Willie Mays. Im tempted to say Andruw Jones, just because, in his heyday, he was the best I ever saw with my own eyeballs. But people who watched Paul Blair play for those stupendous teams in Baltimore in the 1960s and 70s will tell you he was the greatest defender they ever saw roam center field. He played the shallowest. He anticipated the best. He went back on the ball better than anyone. He made big plays and huge catches for teams that won between 90 and 109 games pretty much every year for more than a decade.I dont have the metrics to prove it, because the fielding data from that age just isnt precise enough. I only know he won eight Gold Gloves, he led all AL outfielders in defensive win shares seven times and baseball-reference.com tells us he ranks second among all outfielders in history (behind Jones) in defensive wins above replacement. So maybe Mays was better. Maybe Jones was better. Maybe Kevin Kiermaier is better for all I know. But if Im running Paul Blair out there for the next decade, I know balls are going to get caught. And you know what else I know? My team is going to win.

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Joe Williams got the call Monday. Would he consider coming back to the Utes?It was a quick yes, the running back said.With just a week of practice, Williams came out of retirement and ran for 179 yards and a touchdown for No. 21 Utah on Saturday in a rain-soaked 19-14 victory over Oregon State.The senior who left the team following the second game of the season finished with 34 carries and the Utes (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) became bowl eligible with the victory.Its like riding a bike, he smiled.Trailing 12-7, Oregon State (2-4, 1-2) got as close as the Utah 9 with 8:25 left in the game, but couldnt score and Garrett Owens 27-yard field goal attempt went wide left.After quarterback Troy Williams ran for an 8-yard touchdown to extend Utahs lead, the Beavers scored on Marcus McMaryions 14-yard pass to Hunter Jarmon for the final margin.

Junior Jordan Howard made his debut at running back following Shynes injury, but he was able to play against Oregon State, presumably because of injury. Junior Troy McCormick and freshman Zack Moss were also unavailable.In addition to pulling Joe Williams out of retirement, the Utes switched wide receiver Cory Butler-Boyd to running back this week.It was great to have him back, it was a huge blessing for us, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said about Williams.

Ive?waited my whole life for a Chicago Cubs World Series win. Stitched College Jerseys . (Lets be honest, with the exception of a few Guinness World Record holders, who hasnt?)?Ive?dreamed about what it would be like to see them win it all.?On Monday, the team made a move that brings a championship that much closer to the north side of Chicago, sending four players, including top prospect Gleyber Torres, to the Yankees in exchange for closer Aroldis Chapman.Chapman is a superstar who fills an immediate need for the first-place Cubs, who are ranked 14th in baseball in bullpen ERA (3.83) and 22nd in save percentage (65.5 percent) this season. He could very well?be the final piece needed to end the longest championship drought in major pro sports history. You can understand why so many Cubs fans rejoiced at the news.But not all of Chicago was celebrating. Many, like me, dreaded the deal going through. Yes, Chapman is the man with the 105 mph fastball. Hes also the man who missed the first 30 games of the season after being suspended under MLBs domestic violence policy. Hes the man who denied choking his girlfriend in October, but did admit to shooting eight bullets into his garage while the mother of his child hid in the bushes, terrified.No charges were?filed?against Chapman -- the?Davie (Florida) Police Department cited?conflicting stories and a lack of cooperation from witnesses -- but MLB investigated, too,?and?commissioner?Rob Manfred?found?Chapmans behavior to be inappropriate under the negotiated policy, particularly his use of a firearm and the impact of that behavior on his partner.After serving his suspension, Chapman described the night with the gun and the 911 call and the alleged choking as nothing serious. I didnt do anything, he said. People are thinking that its something serious; I have not put my hands on anyone, didnt put anyone in danger. Since I didnt do anything like that, Im not thinking about it. If I didnt do anything, why should I think about it? That is in the past.An alleged assault, a terrified loved one and a confirmed eight bullets shot in a garage, one of which flew through a window into an open field. Not serious? Not dangerous? Its a troubling denial of culpability.Now, just nine months after the incident in question, and two months after Chapmans flippant remarks, a new fan base is being asked to embrace him, to give him a second chance.Some fans may never be comfortable with an athlete accused or convicted of abuse being afforded the privilege of representing a team and a city in professional?sports, but?many would accept giving an athlete a second chance if they felt certain that something had been learned and changes had been made. Not all athletes are going to be good guys,?but people shouldnt have to feel guilty about their fandom as an accepted cost of doing business.Ive written before about?why many domestic violence experts believe one -and -done isnt the best policy, and I agree. Players like?Chapman should not be banned from the league forever, but discipline is necessary, and it must not be for the sake of PR. It must be meted out with the end goal of changing behavior.Those experts say the most important factor in avoiding recidivism is the offenders willingness to acknowledge guilt and take accountability for his or her actions. Baseball is on the right track, putting in place a domestic violence policy that includes education and prevention programs. The next step would be to ensure that these elements of the policy are made clear to fans, so?theyre able to see that real efforts are being made to stop the cycle of violence.For now, Chicago fans will get no real assurance that Chapman has learned or changed, other than a brief statement released?on Monday.?After acknowledging Octobers incident in a statement saying, I?regret that I did not exercise better judgment and for that I am truly sorry, Chapman declared, Out of respect for my family, I will not comment any further on this matter.?Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts?said, My?family, this team and Major League?Baseball take?the issue of domestic violence very seriously.Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein went one step further in acknowledging what comes next for Chapman. [Acquiring Chapman] doesnt mean were turning our back on the importance of character at all, Epstein told the media on Monday. I think because weve emphasized character and building this core that we have, we have a tremendously strong clubhouse culture. We have great character down there. We think that it will help Aroldis as he moves forward.So troubled Cubs fans are left hoping Epstein is right, hoping that Chapman arrives a changed man and thrives in the Chicago clubhouse. Well get no further comment on the matter from Chapman, himself. Just blazing fastballs. Fastballs that will assuredly help the team I love. Fastballs that could be the difference come October.Whenever I picture what it will be like when the Cubs win it all, I see a mass of humans of all shapes and sizes and ages hugging in the Wrigley Field bleachers and grandstands. I see fans crying over Ronnie and Ernie, grandpas and grandmas and everyone else who didnt make it quite long enough. I see bleacher bums and ball hawks refusing to leave the park or the bar or the street until the last song has been sung, the last champagne bottle popped, the last memory made.When the Chapman deal was finalized, my daydreaming got an edit. Now, I have to picture Chapman pitching the final out of the World Series. The guys Ive come to love -- Rizzo, Bryant, Fowler, Ross, Arrieta -- piling on Chapman on the mound. Chapman on the front page of every newspaper in the country. Chapman, the lasting image of the victory. Chapman, the hero.Its not the picture I always dreamed of. Cheap College Jerseys China .ca!

Indias Shiv Chowrasia, who has finished runner-up in this tournament twice, was in second place after a 66. NEW YORK -- New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson called it bad optics that Yoenis Cespedes played a round of golf hours before landing on the disabled list with a lingering right quadriceps injury.On Thursday, Alderson added that he has come to a mutual agreement with Cespedes representatives that the outfielder will refrain from golfing, at least for the time period when it could be viewed negatively by the public.Ive had conversations with his people, but not directly with Yoenis, Alderson said. But that message will get to him, at least circuitously, and probably directly.... I think everybody is taking it seriously. I think Yoenis takes it seriously. But Yoenis has his own personal life that sometimes is larger than life. Weve seen that from the beginning of spring training.Cespedes injured the quadriceps on July 8, and he has been in and out of the lineup for the past month. He finally landed on the DL after a 9-5 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday, when manager Terry Collins spotted Cespedes grimacing on a swing during his final at-bat. The outfielder said he could not continue.Alderson did not have an estimate for the length of Cespedes absence, but the GM hoped it would be limited to two weeks. Alderson said an MRI taken of Cespedes quadriceps Thursday showed no worsening of the injury from when it was originally diagnosed.In retrospect, Alderson acknowledged the Mets should have placed Cespedes on the DL when the injury originally occurred. Cespedes skipped the All-Star Game and appeared in only 14 games since originally straining the muscle. He hit .227 with one homer and seven RBIs in 44 at-bats during that stretch.It has been a trying month or so with Yoenis and the injury, Alderson said. And, in retrospect, its probable that we should have just put him on the DL at the beginning of this episode, which is generally true with most injuries, unfortunately. ... On the other hand, he wanted to trry to play through it. College Jerseys For Sale. We certainly had every interest in seeing him do that.Alderson said team doctors cannot confirm that golf made the injury worse, but the GM acknowledged it comes off looking poor. At least one Mets employee was disappointed that former major leaguer Kevin Millar tweeted a photo of his round of golf on Wednesday with Cespedes, which put it on the medias radar.In reality, Cespedes may have played golf 10 times in the past couple of weeks, a team official said.The golf is bad optics, Alderson said. Lets just start there. Our doctors have told us that probably had no impact on the injury -- positive or negative. But lets face it: You play golf during the day and then go out injured in the evening, its a bad visual. I think he recognizes that at this point. So well go from there.Cespedes landing on the DL is a serious blow to the Mets, who entered Thursday a season-high 8? games behind the Washington Nationals in the National League East. Jay Bruce just made his Mets debut on Tuesday after being acquired from the Cincinnati Reds. Cespedes and Bruce appeared in the starting lineup only once together before Cespedes required the DL trip.With Brandon Nimmo promoted to replace Cespedes, the Mets now have five lefty-hitting outfielders, which Alderson acknowledged is not ideal. In addition to Cespedes, righty-hitting outfielders Juan Lagares (thumb surgery) and Justin Ruggiano (hamstring strain) are on the DL.The Mets considered calling up T.J. Rivera, but he is primarily an infielder, so team officials passed. Mets brass also was concerned about Travis Taijerons high strikeout rate with Triple-A Las Vegas (131 Ks in 364 at-bats).Were going to have to grin and bear it for the moment, Alderson said. We are a little heavily populated with left-handed hitters.

MIAMI -- FIU knows what it has at quarterback. Wholesale Cheap Jordans From China . Indiana is about to get a much better feel for its starter.The well-traveled Richard Lagow -- once a UConn signee, then a walk-on at Oklahoma State, then a junior-college player in Texas for the last two seasons -- makes his Indiana debut on Thursday night, when the Hoosiers visit FIU in the season-opener for both teams.Lagow gets the keys to an offense that has eight starters back from a year ago, when the Hoosiers set school records for points, yards, passing yards, passing first downs, total first downs and total plays.Im curious to see how he reacts in a game, said Indiana coach Kevin Wilson, whose team beat FIU 36-22 last year. I know hes been great in practice.In his two junior-college seasons, Lagow threw for 4,506 yards with 38 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. The decision that he would start wasnt revealed until last week, but Wilson knew far earlier.We actually evolved to that about after the seventh practice, Wilson said. So hes kind of been the guy. Hes handled it well. Looking forward to seeing him.FIU quarterback Alex McGough is already entrenched in his job, and did some record-book rewriting of his own a year ago. McGough set school marks with 420 pass attempts, 269 completions and 21 touchdowns in 2015.Indianas a very good football team, FIU coach Ron Turner said. They return a lot of the guys from last years team that went to a bowl game. Theyve got a lot of confidence. Theyve got their entire offensive line back. Theyve got guys back off a good football team, so its going to be a challenge.---Heres some of what to know going into Thursday night:WELCOME BACK: It only took Indiana 50 years to return to the Sunshine State. The Hoosiers last played a game in Florida on Oct. 21, 1966, losing to Miami 14-7 at the now-demolished Orange Bowl. Before meeting FIU last year the most recent instance of the Hoosiers facing a team from the state was in the 1986 All-American Bowl against Florida State.B1G PROBLEMS: This is the 10th time FIU has faced a team that currently calls the Big Ten home, and the Panthers are still looking for their first win in those matchups. Theres been some close calls -- one-score games against Maryland in 2006 and Rutgers in 2009 and 2010 (though neither school was a Big Ten member at the time) -- but the average score of those nine games has been 34-12.LOTS OF YARDS: Indiana was one of 15 FBS teams to average more than 500 yards of offense per game last season. The Hoosiers were also one of 10 teams to, on average, allow more than 500 yards per game. Only two other schools were on that rather unique list: Texas Tech (which put up the second-most yards per game in the nation, while also giving up the second-most yards per game) and Tulsa.FIU AT HOME: The Panthers won more games at home last season than the year before, notable because they had just five games at home in 2015 compared to eight in 2014. FIUs 4-1 home mark last year was its first winning record on its home field since going 4-2 in 2011.TWO OF FOUR: Indiana and FIU are in the second year of four consecutive seasons of facing off. The Hoosiers and Panthers have deals to meet again in 2017 and 2018, first in Bloomington next year and then back in Miami on Sept. 1, 2018. Wholesale Retro Jordans China . 9.

ALAMEDA, Calif. Air Max 97 Wholesale . -- Raiders left guard Kelechi Osemele has a few physical reminders of his time in Baltimore, most notably the Super Bowl ring he won as a rookie in 2012 that sits in a safe that his mother watches over.Mentally, the veteran offensive lineman cant shake the memories of a bitter offseason split after four highly productive years with the Ravens that ultimately led to his arrival in Oakland, where hes become the anchor of one of the top lines in the NFL.Heading back to M&T Stadium for the first time since then in a critical game for both teams, Osemele admits it will be an unusual experience.Its definitely going to be an emotional day, Osemele said. Guys that were your teammate, youre going to be competing against for the first time ever. Thats going to be a different twist. Its definitely going to be a passionate day for me . a lot of mixed feelings going on at that time in that stadium.The 60th overall pick in 2012, Osemele started 51 games at three different positions during his four years with the Ravens while earning a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most menacing and tenacious blockers in the league.Because of his resume and age, Osemele expected to stay a long time in Baltimore before negotiations on a contract extension broke down.The Ravens reportedly offered Osemele a deal that would have made him the second-highest paid player on the team. According to Osemele, however, the offer wasnt even close to what the market was for a player of his caliber.Osemele quickly got over it after signing a five-year, $58.5 million contract with the Raiders. Yet the memory of leaving the only NFL team he had played with still resonates, much like the devastating blocks delivered on opposing linebackers by the 6-foot-5-inch, 330-pound Osemele.The numbers just didnt come anywhere close, Osemele said. It hurts your feelings a little bit because you spent the last four years there. There have been a lot of ups and downs, winning the Super Bowl there, and to kind of find out thats probably not where youre going to end up can be a little emotional.Osemele has resisted the urge to reach out to his friends on the Ravens roster this week as he tries to keep his feelings in check.I havent really talked individually with those guys about what theyre doing differently, not that they would tell me, but they definitely look like their old selves, Osemele said. Theyre a physical team. Thats a lot of where my playing demeanor came from, that build-a-bully mentality . so thats what were going to get.Oaklands offensive line has had a definite impact on the teams early success.Quarterback Derek Carr has barely been touched so far while directing the NFLs second-ranked offense. In three games, Carr has been sacked just twice, and one of them came on a scramble out of bounds. The two sacks allowed by Oaklands offensive line are tied for the fewest in the NFL with San Francisco and the New York Jets.The Raiders are also moving the ball on the ground effectively with the leagues No. 2 rushing attack while averaging 148.3 yards a game.Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Osemele is a reflection of Oaklands offense line as a whole.I dont think any of our guys are nice, Musgrave said Thursday. They may be polite and theyre professional but across the board our guys are physical. Theyre like Kelechi. Kelechi fits right in with those guys, nasty.Thats something Osemeles former teammates in Baltimore remember well.Hes just one of those nasty offensive linemen, Ravens running back Justin Forsett said. He tries to dominate every play. Youre going to see guys getting pancaked and hes standing over them. Hes kind of that mouthpiece out there, that headhunter that you want on the offensive line.Game notes Starting right tackle Menelik Watson missed his second straight practice with a calf injury. Rookie Vadal Alexander has been working with the first-team offense in Watsons absence. . Backup strong safety Nate Allen (quad) was held out of practice after being limited a day earlier while reserve offensive lineman Austin Howard (ankle) sat out as well.

"We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said.Bradford Bulls have been placed into administration, according to chairman Marc Green. Last month, officials at HM Revenue and Customs asked for the Championship side to be wound up at a hearing in a Bankruptcy & Companies Court in London.At the hearing, tax officials claimed they were owed around £350,000 by the club but Bulls disputed the amount saying the debt was nearer £133,000. Registrar Nicholas Briggs said he would review the case on November 14 after a lawyer representing the club said money would be paid. However, no agreement could be met and the club, playing in the second tier of professional rugby league for the first time in 41 years, will now enter administration for the third time in four years.In a statement, Green said: I have been talking to a number of serious investors and purely the pressure from HMRC has forced the club to be put into this position to save its future.There is a dispute between ourselves and HMRC which we have been working hard to resolve since the winding up petition was issued and despite two adjournments from the courts to resolve this matter we have been unable to do so.

I believe the future of Bradford Bulls is still strong.An RFL spokesperson said: We have been communicating closely with Bradford Bulls and we are aware of the decision to place the club into administration.It is undoubtedly a painful and uncertain time for supporters, players and employees. In these circumstances the RFL will always seek to support a club in difficulty for the sake of those directly affected and also on behalf of the chairmen and boards of well-managed clubs who deserve stability.Any decision regarding membership of the RFL and possible sporting sanctions will be made in due course and are at the discretion of the RFL board.

Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. NEW YORK -- The former head of the Costa Rican soccer federation pleaded guilty on Friday to conspiracy and other charges accusing him of accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to award lucrative marketing contracts.Eduardo Li became the latest soccer official to plead guilty in a scandal thats shaken FIFA, the sports governing body. Its believed several of the officials are cooperating in the sprawling U.S. investigation.Appearing in federal court in Brooklyn, the 57-year-old Li detailed through a Spanish interpreter several schemes in which he pocketed a fortune in under-the-table payments between 2007 and 2015 in exchange for using his authority to influence soccer-related business deals.In one deal, Li said he was offered $500,000 to award marketing rights for qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup, scheduled to be held in Qatar.

BCCI president Anurag Thakur today slammed former selection committee chief Sandeep Patil, saying it was unethical on his part to reveal certain confidential details about Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and others after his tenure ended earlier this month. Air Max 98 For Sale .Thakur stopped short of saying that action will be taken against Patil but said right people in the BCCI will speak to him soon over the issue which has created a major controversy.Patil, a former international cricketer, recently disclosed that the selection panel would have dropped Sachin Tendulkar before he eventually quit international cricket and that it had also considered removing MS Dhoni from ODI captaincy ahead of the 2015 World Cup.Let me make it very clear. Sandeep, being a former chairman, should not have made these comments. When he was the chairman, he replied differently to the same questions. But after that [his tenure], it was different. It was totally unethical of him to do that, Thakur told PTI.One should refrain from making such unethical and unwanted comments in this area [selection matters]. It is because he has been trusted to become the chairman, because he has played enough cricket. There were four more selectors with him; they did not say anything. He should have avoided that, the BCCI president said.Asked whether any action was being contemplated by the BCCI against Patil over the breach of confidentiality, he said, The right people in the BCCI will speak to him soon.Thakur went to the extent of saying such a breach of confidentiality would make it difficult for any of future employers of Patil to trust him.Any organisation, if they hire him, will think ten times that after leaving the organisation, he will speak about the organisation, Thakur said.Patils four-year tenure ended when the panel announced the 15-man squad for the ongoing Test series against New Zealand.

The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers are 1-3, their MVP quarterback has a concussion and their young secondary just allowed Matt Ryan to throw for 503 yards and four touchdowns.Yep, the NFCs best team last season is reeling.The Panthers are 1/3 for the fourth time in six seasons under coach Ron Rivera, but the two-time NFL Coach of the Year said this one feels different.I think we should be better than we are, Rivera said Monday.Carolina has won three straight NFC South titles, but is two games behind the Atlanta Falcons (3-1) one quarter of the way through the season.And now theres a chance they could be without Cam Newton for a while.Newton left Sundays 48-33 loss to the Falcons in the fourth quarter with a concussion and did not return. Rivera said Newtons status for next Monday nights home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is uncertain. The Panthers visit the New Orleans Saints in another division matchup in Week 6 before a bye week.Derek Anderson, who threw two TD passes and two interceptions against the Falcons, would start if Newton isnt cleared from the concussion protocol. Anderson was 2-0 as a starter for Carolina in 2014 with both wins coming against Tampa Bay.Rivera last spoke to Newton after the game at the Georgia Dome and said the quarterback told him, Im fine.But the coach said he hadnt spoken to Newton on Monday and that I have no idea what has come out of the meeting with the doctors.The Panthers return to practice Wednesday.Newton inexplicably slowed down nearing the goal line on a 2-point conversion run on Sunday and took a legal hit from linebacker Deion Jones.Rivera, a former NFL linebacker with the Chicago Bears, seemed to have no problem with the hit, saying If I was playing Id have taken the shot.Even before the injury, Newton wasnt playing particularly smart.He was flagged for a taunting penalty in the first quarter and finished 14 of 25 for 165 yards and a touchdown with a few overthrows.Newton has eight combined touchdowns and six turnovers so far this season. At this point last season, Newton had nine combined TDs and three turnovers -- and the Panthers were on their way to a 14-0 start and a trip tto the Super Bowl. Air Max 98 Outlet. His QB rating (80.2) is at a career low and hes only completing 57.9 percent of his passes.The offensive line, which was missing left tackle Michael Oher (concussion) on Sunday, has allowed 13 sacks against Newton, considered to be one of the more mobile quarterbacks in the league.Rivera said the team needs to learn how to better utilize the options they have on offense.Theres plenty of blame to go around though.Carolinas starting defensive ends Charles Johnson and Kony Ealy have yet to get a sack, and its young secondary allowed Julio Jones to pile up 300 yards receiving -- the fourth-most in the Super Bowl era.The Panthers removed the $13.9 million franchise tag from All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman in the offseason and turned to three rookies to help replace him, including starter James Bradberry. That appears to be a huge mistake for a team well under the NFL salary cap.Bradberry was outmatched when lined up against Jones, allowing three completions for 51 yards on Atlantas first possession before leaving for about two quarters with a toe injury.When asked about the Panthers problems in the secondary on the Dan LeBatard Show, Norman responded, You get what you pay for.Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, whose defense had finished in the top 10 in the league the past four seasons, said he expected some growing pains from his young secondary.I would be naive to think that wouldnt have been the case, McDermott said. ... Theres a lot of communication that goes on there, but that is the challenge that goes on as a coach.Still, the Panthers arent used to giving up 597 yards in a game.When asked if he thinks Norman might have made a difference, McDermott said. I havent thought about Josh on our defense since the minute he left. That is how you have to do your job. We have new players in those positions and I have a tremendous amount of confidence in those players and I expect them to do the job at a high level.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Authentic Nike Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Tennessee Titans Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Washington Redskins Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Denver Broncos Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Green Bay Packers Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike New England Patriots Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Oakland Raiders Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Seattle Seahawks Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Carolina Panthers Jerseys Cheap Authentic Nike Cleveland Browns Jerseys Cheap Cheap Throwback Baseball Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Atlanta Braves Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Baltimore Orioles Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Boston Red Sox Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Chicago Cubs Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Chicago White Sox Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Cincinnati Reds Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Cleveland Indians Jerseys ' ' '

(STATS) -- As FCS juggernaut North Dakota State continues to find a way to beat nearly every team and challenge that stands in its way, another national title probably seems like a foregone conclusion.But the challenge will get tougher. Theres great pressure when the feeling of a national title or bust is hanging in the air.In last weeks STATS national rankings, the top-ranked Bison have defeated nine of the next 11 teams since the start of the 2014 season, and the only reason Chattanooga and James Madison probably arent included on the Bison hit list is that they hadnt played them. The Bison are an absurd 74-5 since beginning their run of five straight national championship seasons in 2011.Tomorrow isnt promised. Remember that this time last year, nobody suspected a home loss would occur against South Dakota or that a potentially crippling injury like the one suffered by then-quarterback Carson Wentz would threaten the season as well. A lot can go wrong just as so much goes right.The Bison play in the strongest FCS conference -- the Missouri Valley -- and their rivals know how to play them better than Charleston Southern, Eastern Washington and Iowa. That may be overlooked after a murderers row of a nonconference schedule, but coach Chris Kliemans team faces a number of physical, tough games ahead.Northern Iowa woke up today believing it will beat the Bison next month. Western Illinois must think it has a shot. Illinois State, well, the Redbirds are two-time defending conference co-champs as well and are up next on Oct. 1.Over the long regular season, NDSU appears to be the best team again. But the FCS playoffs dont provide a second chance and the Bison can be beaten in a one-game situation. An opposing team just has to find the right day against the greatest dynasty in FCS history.---=SECOND AND 10=Ten more observations from the FCS weekend:1.) After having FCS co-games of the week, co-teams of the week make sense. What Stony Brook did to No. 2 Richmond -- posting a 42-14 win -- was even more surprising than No. 1 North Dakota States 23-21 upset at No. 13 Iowa. Offense has been at a premium at Stony Brook, but quarterback Joe Carbone, running back Stacey Bedell and wide receiver Ray Bolen provided excellent balance. NDSU was the more physical team than the Hawkeyes -- posting a 239-34 advantage in rushing yards -- to push its amazing FBS win streak to six.2.) With Richmonds loss, Sam Houston State appears poised to move up one spot to No. 2 following a 44-31 road victory over Lamar in the Southland Conference. But consider Jacksonville State, which was fourth last week, thrashed Sam Houston 62-10 in last years national semifinals. And Eastern Washington, which was too low at No. 8 last week, has wins over Washington State and Northern Iowa and only an overtime loss to North Dakota State. Clearly, the debate over No. 2 is strong.3.) Terrific decision by the Eastern Washington coaches in the Big Sky teams 34-30 win against No. 10 Northern Iowa. Sophomore Gage Gubrud was all-world in the Eagles first two games (60 of 80, 924 yards, nine touchdowns), but he simply didnt have it during the home opener and they went to Reilly Hennessey in the second half. The redshirt sophomore completed 21 of 29 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner on a fake field goal in the final minute.4.) Ivy League teams opened their season to a rousing 5-3 start. Dartmouth rallied to a 22-21 win over No. 22 New Hampshire, ending a streak of 13 straight losses and 20 games without a win (18 losses, two ties) against its intrastate rival. Harvard routed Rhode Island 51-21 and two of the three 2015 champs won, with Penn lacking defensive answers in a 49-28 loss to Lehigh. Wholesale Retro Jordans Cheap. Brown, Princeton and Cornell also earned victories.5.) Taking the Ivy League out of the equation, 14 teams are unbeaten through two or three games. Six of them -- Albany (CAA), East Tennessee State (Southern), Georgetown (Patriot), Missouri State (Missouri Valley), Tennessee State (Ohio Valley) and Wagner (Northeast) -- are coming off losing seasons.6.) Speaking of East Tennessee State, the Buccaneers averaged 7,128 at home games when they returned to football last year after a 12-year hiatus, so drawing a school-record 13,863 to Bristol Motor Speedway for the Western Carolina matchup was significant. Even better for the Bucs (2-0), they gained a 34-31 Southern Conference win. Coach Carl Torbush continued to watch the maturation of sophomore QB Austin Herink, who threw for three touchdowns.7.) An FCS team has scored at least 80 points in each of the first three full weeks of the season. James Madison beat Morehead State 80-7, Fordham ripped Division II Elizabeth City State 83-21 and UT Martin became the latest in destroying NAIA Bacone 84-6 even though the second half was shortened to two 10-minute quarters. Last year, the FCS season high was Southern Illinois 73 points against Missouri State.8.) Eight FCS teams have beaten FBS programs, but South Carolina State isnt one of them despite having three attempts this season. Coach Buddy Poughs MEAC power was shut out by UCF and Clemson and fell to Louisiana Tech by a combined 150-24. Everybody has dreams of an upset, but financially strapped athletic programs, especially those from the historically black schools, are usually only scheduling losses.9.) As good as Saturdays action was in the FCS, dont overlook that the week opened Thursday night with Arkansas-Pine Bluff stunning Alcorn State 45-43 in two overtimes. UAPB went 2-9 overall and 1-8 in the SWAC last season and was coming off a loss to Division II Panhandle State, but two-time defending conference champ Alcorn State got caught overlooking the Golden Lions. The Braves surrendered less than 92 passing yards per game last year, yet Brandon Duncan riddled them for an FCS-season high 505 yards as well as four touchdowns. In the second OT, he had a game-tying 25-yard TD to Willie Young and then connected with John Hawkins for a winning two-point conversion.10.) The ultimate weapon in the FCS might be one of the smallest. Southern fifth-year senior Willie Quinn was at it again in a 64-6 trouncing of Alabama State, totaling 290 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns, including a 73-yard punt return which gave him 10 TD returns in his career. Oh yes, the 5-foot-5 dynamo, the FCS leader in all-purpose yards, also threw a 30-yard touchdown.---=A LOOK AHEAD=Conference games begin to dominate the FCS schedule next weekend, although only four of the 10 teams in Missouri Valley Conference are in action.The Big Sky schedule gets rolling with marquee games: Eastern Washington at Northern Arizona, Montana at Cal Poly and Portland State at defending champion Southern Utah.Dayton visits San Diego in a matchup of the last years Pioneer Football League co-champs, while Alcorn State faces a must-win at Grambling State in a rematch of the 2015 SWAC Championship Game. Also, Samford is at Chattanooga in a key Southern Conference game and Harvard puts a 15-game road winning streak on the line at Ivy League rival Brown.The nonconference headliners are Jacksonville State at Liberty and Colgate at Richmond. Also, as FCS-FBS matchups continue to dwindle, Western Illinois heads to Northern Illinois and Central Arkansas visits Arkansas State.
