ATHENS, Ga. Wholesale Clippers Jerseys . -- Kirby Smarts first season as Georgias head coach isnt going as planned.Visions of an SEC East title, a premier bowl game and a high national ranking were essentially ruined by last weekends stunning home loss to Vanderbilt.Fans might be getting restless, but Smart insists hes still confident in himself and his staff despite the Bulldogs (4-3) losing three of four.Welcome to the world we live in as coaches, Smart said Tuesday. Youve got to figure out what you can do best and better to get these kids a chance to be successful. I think that comes through a lot of things -- confidence, improvement, recruiting. Theres a lot of areas that were going to improve on. But am I questioning myself? No, not at all.Smart spent eight years as defensive coordinator at Alabama, where he helped the Crimson Tide win four national titles under head coach Nick Saban and was made the nations highest-paid assistant in 2013.Smart was hired by his alma mater last December, replacing Mark Richt and hoping to make the Bulldogs a consistent contender for the SEC East title.Its hardly been an easy ride.Georgia had a No. 9 ranking after winning the opener against North Carolina, but its been out of The Associated Press poll since losing to Tennessee on a last-second touchdown pass three weeks ago.With this job comes criticism. Im accepting of that, Smart said. Ive seen it. Ive seen it with good friends. Ive seen it with programs Ive been in. That doesnt scare me. What Im worried about is our team and our players developing and getting better. Thats the most important thing.Smart is using the first two days of this weeks bye to work on fundamentals. Theyre off until Oct. 29 against Florida.The offense lacks identity. Nick Chubb began the season as a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate but has five games under 100 yards rushing. He had just one below the mark in his first two years as the starting tailback.Freshman quarterback Jacon Eason isnt getting much time to throw. The Bulldogs have allowed 17 sacks, most in the Southeastern Conference.His protection was better against Vanderbilt as Eason threw for a career-best 346 yards. But Chubb and Sony Michel combined for just 68 yards rushing and neither touched the ball on a late fourth-and-one pitch that fell apart.The Bulldogs clearly must get Chubb, a bruising runner, more involved. He dominated in two games but otherwise hasnt been used enough.Im very pleased with how we run it some games, and then Im very upset where we couldnt some games, Smart said. Youve got to be diversified enough. Thats the truth in the SEC and in college football.Special teams play has been poor. Before Rodrigo Blankenship hit on all three attempts last Saturday, Georgia had gone 4 for 9 on field-goal attempts. Big blunders against Vanderbilt dropped the Bulldogs to a No. 120 ranking in kickoff coverage, 57th in kickoff return average and 60th in punt average. They also rank 70th punt return average.Smart is taking a closer look at what he can do to get it all fixed.I think Ive got to be just as much hands-on with everything, he said. I think the parts that Im hands-on the most would probably be the defense and special teams. The offense, I get to spend time there, but theres only so much time in the day.---Online:AP College Football coverage: http://collegefootball.ap.org/ Cheap Swingman Clippers Jerseys .

In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. http://www.cheapclippersjerseys.com/ .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee.England head coach Eddie Jones says his teams change in attitude sparked their Six Nations Grand Slam success just six months after their early World Cup exit. England put their home tournament failure behind them to seal the Grand Slam with a 31-21 win over France in Paris last weekend, their first in 13 years. Jones: No one safe for England Eddie Jones says no one from his Six Nations squad is guaranteed a starting place in Australia Speaking to Sky Sports, Jones said: It is a great achievement by the team and we are proud of the boys. All I have tried to do is change the environment, they are talented players and always have been and they will continue to get better. England secured the Grand Slam against France but Jones is adamant that the hard-work continues if England are to taste more success I think you have got to believe you can win and if thats arrogance, then we have got a lot of arrogance because we believe we can win and youve got to believe youu can be better. Cheap Clippers Jerseys. I dont think that was one of the things they thought about a lot. They definitely thought about wanting to be better but youve got to think about it every day and youve got to live it every day.Up next for England is a trip down under to take on Australia, where England have only won three Tests since their first visit in 1963, and former Wallabies coach Jones has his sights firmly on causing an upset. England secured the Grand Slam against France but Jones is adamant that the hard-work continues if England are to taste more success I think it is going to be great fun, said Jones. Bodyline rugby, thats what we are going to play.We are going to get stuck in to them.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Andre Drummond flexed his muscles, bowed his back and enforced his will on the Minnesota Timberwolves. Cheap Miami Marlins Jerseys .And the free-falling pups showed they wanted nothing to do with Detroits monster in the middle, raising alarm bells all over Minnesota.Drummond had 22 points and 22 rebounds for his second straight 20-20 game and the Pistons cruised to a 117-90 victory over the Timberwolves on Friday night.His energy was great, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. He was dominant. He was all over the boards.Marcus Morris had 15 points and seven rebounds and the Pistons had their way with Minnesotas struggling defense, hitting 14 of 29 3-pointers. Detroit came into the game second-to-last in the NBA averaging just 7.1 made 3s per game.Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points and Karl-Anthony Towns had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Wolves.Drummond had his third 20-20 game of the season and 10th since 2014-15, the most in the NBA during that span, and Detroit won for the fourth time on the road in the last five games after starting the season 1-8 away from home.I give my all every night, Drummond said. When the balls falling the right way like that, my energy kept going up more and more as the game went on because everything was kind of going the right way that night.Van Gundy has been harping on Drummond to give more consistent effort night-in and night-out, and he beamed that he has gotten three straight strong performances from his All-Star center.Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau is having even more difficulty squeezing energy out of his team and said he was very concerned that his message is not getting through to a team that is 6-17.Im going to keep coming. I dont go away, Thibodeau vowed. Im going to look at everything, re-examine. Somethings being missed. Its got to change.Detroit broke the game open in the third quarter, hitting six 3s during a 31-10 run that bled into the fourth and prompted boos from a sparse Target Center crowd.Reggie Jackson scored 16 points in his fourth game back from a left knee injury.REELING WOLVESMinnesota has lost seven of its last eight games and has not won at home since Nov. 17.We can accept making mistakes and dont make shots, said Ricky Rubio, who had 10 points. Playing with no heart, with no desire, its just awful. Right now, its just bad.Thibodeau said everything is on the table as he looks to fix things, including lineup changes.Something is not right, he said. We have to find the answer to that.LONG DISTANCEThe Wolves started out the season as the best 3-point shooting team in the NBA, an enormous improvement from recent seasons when they have languished near the bottom of the league. They have steadily regressed to the mean, however, and made just 3 of 16 3s on Friday night. They went through a stretch of 13 straight misses before Brandon Rush made one, his first since Nov. 1, in garbage time.HOMECOMINGPistons rookie Henry Ellenson is from Rice Lake, Wisconsin, a two-hour drive from Target Center. Ellenson said more than 150 people were making the trip for his first game in Minnesota. It was such an anticipated night that Rice Lake High School rescheduled its boys and girls basketball games so more people from the town could make it.The Rice Lake High School band also played during pregame warmups.The vocal contingent cheered Put in Henry! as the game got out of hand in the fourth, and cheered wildly when he finally entered with four minutes to play.TIP-INSPistons: F Jon Leuer, a native of Orono, also made a homecoming. He scored 17 points. ... Drummond air-balled a free throw in the first quarter.Timberwolves: F Adreian Payne was ejected in the fourth quarter for elbowing Morris. ... F Nemanja Bjelica missed the game with a sore right ankle. ... Gorgui Dieng had 13 points and seven rebounds.UP NEXTPistons: Detroit heads home to host Philadelphia on Sunday.Timberwolves: Minnesota stays home to host the Golden State Warriors, who will be playing the second night of a back-to-back, on Sunday.---This story has been corrected to show that Drummond has three 20-20 games this season, not five. Cheap Marlins Jerseys China .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. Jose Fernandez Jersey . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. http://www.cheapmarlinsjerseys.com/ . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. WASHINGTON -- A bill moving forward in Congress would block the IRS from taxing most medals or other prizes awarded to U.S. Olympians.The U.S. Olympic Committee awards cash prizes to Olympic medal winners: $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. Thats in addition to the cash value of the medals themselves: about $600 for gold and $300 for silver. Bronze medals have little intrinsic value.Because the money is considered earned income, it is taxed -- a practice some lawmakers refer to the victory tax.The Senate passed legislation to make the winnings tax-free just before the Summer Olympics. The House approved a similar bill on Thursday, 415-1, and the bill now goes back to the Senate.The House bill would allow Olympic taxes on high-profile athletes such as swimmer Michael Phelps who earn more than $1 million a year.For Phelps, the tax bill for his five golds and one silver won in Rio could be steep -- as much as $55,000. Gymnast Simone Biles faces a possible $43,000 tax bill for her haul of four golds and one bronze.Unlike Phelps or Biles, the vast majority of Olympic and Paralympic athletes will never sign an endorsement deal or get paid millions of dollars to compete. Cheap Marlins Jerseys Authentic. Theyre school teachers, full-time students, retail workers and more, said Rep. Robert Dold, R-Ill.When the athletes return home with a medal for Team USA, the IRS forces our Olympic and Paralympic champions to pay a penalty for their success. Our bipartisan bill ensures that these athletes can remain focused on fulfilling their Olympic and Paralympic dreams without the fear of getting a huge tax bill in the mail, Dold said.Olympic athletes should be worried about breaking world records -- not breaking the bank- when they earn a medal, said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. After a successful and hard-fought victory, its just not right for the U.S. to welcome these athletes home with a tax on that victory.USA Luge chief executive Jim Leahy said the federal tax places a hardship on athletes and unfairly taxes them for representing the U.S. and reaching the top of their sports.---Follow Matthew Daly: http://twitter.com/MatthewDalyWDC ' ' '

CLEVELAND -- Indians manager Terry Francona admitted his team didnt have much going through six innings Friday night. Nike Sneakers Korting .A four-run seventh quickly reversed that and resulted in a 5-3 win over the Oakland Athletics.We were quiet up until then, Francona said after the comeback win that helped Cleveland maintain a 4 1/2-game lead over Detroit in the AL Central.Abraham Almonte scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch as Cleveland erased a 3-1 deficit. Jason Kipnis bases-loaded single tied it, and Almonte scored from third on Ryan Dulls wild pitch one batter later.We started getting some traffic out there, Francona said. That can kind of change the game a little bit.Cody Anderson (2-4) pitched a scoreless seventh.Cody Allen worked out of ninth-inning trouble for his 20th save. He allowed a pair of one-out singles in the ninth, but struck out Jed Lowrie before Josh Reddick flied out to deep center.Reddick, who homered in the sixth, drove a pitch that Tyler Naquin caught on the warning track to end the game.I think Naquin was probably the only guy from Cleveland who knew that ball wasnt going to quite get out, Allen said. It was a little nerve-racking, but those things happen.Kendall Graveman (7-7) allowed four runs -- three earned -- in 6 1/3 innings and lost for the first time since May 19.Carlos Santana homered in the sixth for Cleveland.Shortstop Marcus Semiens error on Rajai Davis one-out grounder started the go-ahead rally.

Dulls wild pitch with Francisco Lindor batting scored Almonte and put Cleveland ahead. Lindors sacrifice fly made it 5-3.Oakland manager Bob Melvin praised Gravemans outing.He was cruising along, he gets the first guy out and Davis gets on, Melvin said. Naquin does a good piece of hitting and he elevates the first ball to Almonte. We want to turn Santana around and walk him and then make a good pitch to Kipnis, base hit, next thing you know, were in a little bit of trouble.The Indians had lost four of five and were 8-12 since winning a franchise-record 14 straight going into Friday.We scored late, Allen said. Championship teams, you see a lot of, they score late and their bullpen holds down leads.Khris Davis also homered in the sixth for Oakland.Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer allowed two earned runs in 5 1/3 innings.ROTATION SWITCHOakland LHP Rich Hill, the subject of trade rumors, was scratched from Sundays start because hes still bothered by a blister on the middle finger of his left hand.

According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. Have England - or anyone else - ever had a bigger lead than the 391 they had against Pakistan, and not enforced the follow-on?! asked Jared Kingsford from Australia England have declined to enforce the follow-on on two occasions with a bigger lead than the 391 they had at Old Trafford last week. In Kingston in 1929-30 they led West Indies by 563, but still didnt make them bat again, instead setting a target of 836. This was a timeless Test, so there was some logic behind the England captain Freddie Calthorpes apparently inhumane decision - although he still didnt win, as West Indies had reached 408 for 5 when the match was left drawn after nine days as the England team had to catch the boat home. In another timeless Test, in Brisbane in 1928-29, England batted again despite a lead of 399 - and went on to win by a record 675 runs. The other two instances of a team not enforcing the follow-on despite a lead higher than 391 were both by Australia against England in recent years: in Brisbane in 2006-07 they led by 445 but batted again, while in Adelaide in 2013-14 they went in again despite being 398 in front on first innings. Australia won both Tests comfortably.Is R Ashwin the first Indian to score a hundred and take seven wickets in an innings in a Test? asked Sunitha Shetty from Bangladesh With 113 and 7 for 83 against West Indies in Antigua last week, R Ashwin was indeed the first Indian - and only the third man from any country - to ally a seven-for to a century in the same Test. Ian Botham actually did it twice: he made 108 and took 8 for 34 against Pakistan at Lords in 1978, then in the Golden Jubilee Test against India in Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1979-80 he claimed 7 for 48 (and 6 for 58) to add to an innings of 114. The only other instance was by the old Australian allrounder Jack Gregory, with 100 and 7 for 69 against England in Melbourne in 1920-21. There have been several further instances of a bowler scoring a century and taking five wickets in an innings: Ashwin had done this before, against West Indies in Mumbai in 2011-12, and followed Vinoo Mankad (against England at Lords in 1952) and Polly Umrigar (v West Indies in Port-of-Spain in 1961-62) in achieving the feat for India.All ten Pakistan wickets in the first innings at Old Trafford were out caught. How often has this happened in Tests? asked Chris Goodwin from Italy This isnt terribly rare: as this list shows, there had been 68 previous occasions when all ten batsmen in a Test innings were caught. The first time it happened was in Australias second innings against England in Melbourne in 1903-04. The record number of catches in a single Test (both sides) is 33, by Australia (18) and India (15) in Perth in 1991-92. Has anyone been stumped in both innings of a Test?? asked James Bourne from England There have now been 19 instances of a batsman being stumped in both innings of a Test match. Goedkope Nike Sneakers Dames. The most recent case was Kemar Roach of West Indies, stumped twice by Kusal Perera off Rangana Herath in Galle in October 2015. The one before that saw Zimbabwes Chris Mpofu collect a pair, also against Sri Lanka, in Harare in 2005. Those last two were at least tailenders: rather surprisingly, there have been two opening batsmen who were stumped in both innings as well! They were Englands Tom Hayward (against South Africa at Headingley in 1907) and Bert Sutcliffe of New Zealand (against West Indies in Christchurch in 1955-56).Who has scored the most centuries in Tests away from home? asked Mubbashir Hassan from Pakistan Not surprisingly perhaps, the leader here is Test crickets overall leading run (and century) scorer, Sachin Tendulkar, who made 29 of his 51 Test hundreds outside India. Next come Rahul Dravid with 21, Jacques Kallis with 20, and Sunil Gavaskar with 18. Of current players Alastair Cook has scored 15 hundreds away from home, and Younis Khan 14 (this counts the UAE as home territory for Pakistan). Don Bradman made 11 centuries in just 19 overseas Tests, all of them in England, putting him ahead on percentage (just to compare, Tendulkar played 106 overseas Tests and Dravid 94). Given a qualification of 20 innings, Bradman averaged 102.84 in away Tests; Ken Barrington comes next with 69.18, then Wally Hammond with 66.32. After the first Test in Sri Lanka, Steve Smith averaged 59.78.Yasir Shah conceded 266 runs in the second Test at Old Trafford. Was this any kind of record? asked Stewart Allan from EnglandYasir Shah comes in well down this particular table, the 266 runs he conceded at Old Trafford putting him equal 24th overall on a list headed by another legspinner, the West Indian Tommy Scott, who finished with match figures of 9 for 374 (5 for 266 and 4 for 108) against England in a timeless Test in Kingston in 1929-30. Only two Pakistanis have conceded more runs than Yasirs 266 - Saqlain Mushtaq took 5 for 286 against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 1996-97, while Haseeb Ahsan, another offspinner, claimed 3 for 275 against West Indies in Georgetown in 1957-58. Only two bowlers have conceded more runs while taking only one wicket: slow left-armer Chuck Fleetwood-Smith took 1 for 298 (the record for one innings) as England ran up 903 for 7 against Australia at The Oval in 1938, while Indias Rajesh Chauhan finished with 1 for 276 in Colombo in 1997-98, as Sri Lanka broke that 1938 Test record by scoring 952 for 6.Send in your questions using our feedback form.

No. Cheap Nashville Predators Jerseys . 13 Western Michigan and No. 20 Navy could put a bunch of bowls on hold, depending on what the College Football Playoff selection committee thinks of their performances this weekend.If Navy is in position to earn a spot in a major bowl game when the rankings and semifinal pairings are set Sunday, the 12-person committee will wait a week for Navy to play Army to make a final call on where the Midshipmen should be ranked.Navy (9-2) is 19th in the latest playoff rankings, two spots behind unbeaten Western Michigan heading into the Midshipmens matchup with Temple in the American Athletic Conference championship game Saturday. The Broncos (13-0) beat Ohio 29-23 in the Mid-American championship game Friday night in Detroit.The highest ranked team from the so-called Group of Five -- American, MAC, Mountain West, Conference USA and Sun Belt -- gets an automatic bid to a New Years Six bowl. This season that means the Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas, on Jan. 2.Selection committee chairman Kirby Hocutt said this week that the committee has had a conference call scheduled for Dec. 10 since the summer, just in case this issue came up.If Navy was to pass Western Michigan, it is all but certain the committee would wait to make sure the Midshipmen beat Army (6-5) before it set a Cotton Bowl matchup.If Navy remains behind WMU come Sunday, it will be up to the committee to determine if it needs to see the Army result.The committee is not limited by any specific number, distance behind or ahead. The committee only has to evaluate whether the Army game could affect Navys selection, said Bill Hancock, the executive director of the College Football Playoff. The problem with numerical metrics with something like this is two spots behind could be as close as four spots behind depending on how the committee views that cluster of teams together.Waiting a week to determine whether Western Michigan, Navy or some other team plays in the Cotton Bowl is an inconvenience for organizers of that game, but the bigger issue is the possible trickle-down effect to other bowls.Wright Waters, executive director of the Football Bowl Association, said Thursday that 10 to 14 bowls could be impacted by the delay in setting the Cotton Bowl matchup.The problem is not the number, its the number on that first weekend, Waters said.The first day of the bowl season is Dec. 17. There are six games, all involving Group of Five teams. Delaying setting those matchups until Dec. 11, when teams would have to be at a bowl site three days later, would create a logistical nightmare.The Navy issue is not the only one facing bowl organizers as they try to fill 80 spots for 40 games. Several conferences, including the Pac-12, Big 12 and Big Ten, do not have enough bowl-eligible teams to fill all their contracted spots. There will be at least a couple of 5-7 teams competing in bowl games this season. North Texas and Mississippi State are in line to get bowl bids with sub-.500 records because of their Academic Progress Rate scores, but they will have to wait until all the teams that qualified with six victories are accommodated. Army, an independent, is also in the mix, no matter how it does against Navy.Whats occurring this year is not necessarily different than what occurs every year at this time, MAC Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher said. You have different parties exploring different scenarios.If Navy does not end up in the Cotton Bowl, it is contracted to play in the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Texas, on Dec. 23. If Navy goes to the Cotton, the American would not have enough bowl-eligible teams to fill all its spots, which is how the Cure Bowl in Orlando, Florida, on Dec. 17 could be affected by all this.Swapping out Western Michigan for Navy in the Armed Forces Bowl might be part of a solution. There is also a spot the Big Ten cannot fill in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Dec. 27 that would be a good fit for Western Michigan if it falls out of the New Years Six.ESPN owns and operates 11 bowls, all of which involve Group of Five schools, and it will be involved in putting the postseason puzzle together, too.There are a few twists that could be a little more complex, American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco said, but for the most part its not going to involve the whole system.---Follow Ralph D.

Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys. With Taylor almost certain to start against the Panthers, and coach Neil Henry saying Roberts and the 21-year-old are his preferred halves pairing, Hayne is poised to move to fullback.The dual Dally M medallists likely shift means current No.1 David Mead will either have to be dropped or move to the wing in place of Anthony Don.Douglas said Henry had given no indication of what his selection will be.He keeps his cards close to his chest, Neil, Douglas said.Hell come up with a plan. Its a good thing to have when youve got all guys fighting for positions. Jarryds going to be there in the 17 or 13 and its only going to benefit us. ' ' '
