Milestone men Harry Taylor and Jack Riewoldt could be locked in an intriguing one-on-one battle during Sundays AFL clash at the MCG between Geelong and Richmond. Deacon Jones Jersey .This AFL season has featured no shortage of memorable milestones, headlined by Brent Harvey breaking the league games record in round 19.Adelaides Scott Thompson, St Kilda skipper Nick Riewoldt, North Melbourne forward Drew Petrie, Geelongs Jimmy Bartel and Hawthorn duo Shaun Burgoyne and Sam Mitchell have broken the 300-game barrier.Taylor and Riewoldt will `only be playing their 200th games on the weekend but could mark the occasion by playing on each other.Tom Lonergan has done a good job on Riewoldt in recent meetings but there is every chance Taylor will spend some time on the two-time Coleman medallist.Weve had some pretty good battles over the year. I havent played on him a great deal as of late, Taylor said.But hes just so dangerous and his movement is so silky.He always looks really balanced .. hes an outstanding player ... who is playing really good footy in a forward line that is probably not getting a lot of supply.Its his milestone game as well .. hes going to be a big focus for us because hes a really important player for them.Riewoldt has delivered plenty of highlight-reel fodder since being drafted by the Tigers in 2006.The Tasmanian has also hit the headlines for other reasons - for example in 2014 when comments about Richmonds gameplan didnt go down well with Tigers coach Damien Hardwick.We caught up with him this morning and removed his foot from his mouth and my foot from his arse, Hardwick said at the time.Riewoldt then jumped a construction fence, tried to hide behind a car and caught a train in an unsuccessful attempt to hide from TV cameras.But the 27-year-olds passion and love of the yellow and black has never been up for question.He loves his footy. Hes emotionally invested in this footy club and thats what we love about him, Hardwick said earlier this week.Hes a terrific player.Hes an incredible talent. A great football brain and were lucky to have him.Hes played 200 great games and we look forward to him playing a lot more in Richmond colours.The Tigers have lost their past 11 clashes with Geelong, with their most recent coming in round nine of the 2006 season.Geelong have been an outstanding outfit for a long period of time, Hardwick said.We give ourselves every chance, weve obviously got to be at our best.HARRY TAYLOR*199 games*Runner up in club best and fairest (2013)*All-Australian (2010, 2013)*Premiership player (2009, 2011)JACK RIEWOLDT*199 games*Club best and fairest (2010)*All-Australian (2010, 2015)*Coleman medallist (2010, 2012). Torry Holt Youth Jersey .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. Cory Littleton Jersey . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. http://www.footballramsshop.us/authentic-cooper-kupp-rams-jersey/ . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The last time No. 17 Florida State visited Syracuse, Dalvin Cook was third on the Seminoles depth chart and looking for an opportunity to prove himself.Two years later, Cook is on the precipice of becoming the Seminoles career rushing leader.The junior, who has 3,941 career yards, needs 19 yards on Saturday to break Warrick Dunns 20-year old mark. He is also 59 yards away from becoming just the sixth player in Atlantic Coast Conference history to reach 4,000 yards and would be the first to do it in three years.Former North Carolina State standout Ted Brown is the ACCs career rushing leader with 4,602 yards from 1975-78. He is also the quickest to reach 4,000 yards as he did it in his 38th game. Saturday will be Cooks 36th.Cook said he talked to Dunn before the Oct. 29 game against Clemson, but added there wasnt any discussion about the record. Cook reiterated earlier this week how much he has admired Dunn for what he has done on and off the field.When you have a guy like Warrick at the top of the list and see what he did with the program and as a human being, you have to humble yourself, Cook said. This is kind of like the first game of the season where I have to keep my emotions in check.Last Friday against Boston College , Cook appeared as if he was going to break Dunns record at home as he had 108 yards through three quarters. But with FSU (7-3, 4-3 ACC, No. 17 CFP) up 35-0 coach Jimbo Fisher rested his starters in the fourth.The Carrier Dome tough carries special significance for Cook.It was there in 2014 he had his first 100-yard game (122 yards on 23 carries) in a 38-20 win. That was the first of five 100-yard games for Cook that season as he became the first freshman in school history to rush for over 1,000 yards (1,008).It was kind of like a situation I got thrown into due to injuries. They had confidence in me and I took advantage of the opportunities, ran from there and kept building my momentum, Cook said. I had to grow up quick and make the plays.Last season he broke Dunns school single-season mark and finished with 1,691 yards. Cook didnt have a 100-yard rushing game this season until Sept. 24, when he had a careeer-best 267 yards at South Florida and has had six 100-yard games in his past seven. Greg Gaines Jersey. .With Florida State out of contention for a spot in the College Football Playoff, Cook has quietly put together what could be his best season. He is second among Power 5 running backs in rushing yards (1,242) and yards from scrimmage (1,642) while scoring 14 touchdowns.Hes probably one of or the fastest back that we have in the conference, Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. I thought he was really good, but I didnt know how fast he was until I saw the Clemson game, and I saw him run away from the Clemson secondary. We couldnt run away from their secondary people.Cooks biggest improvement has been catching the ball. He has two 100-yard receiving games this season, including in an Oct. 1 loss to North Carolina when he became the first FSU running back to have 100 yards rushing and receiving in the same game.I mean, hes always caught the ball well. But understanding how to run routes where leverages are and how to set holds. Now hes got certain things down and he keeps adding to his repertoire, Fisher said.Cooks college career is likely down to its final three games, including a bowl game. Syracuse (4-6, 1-5) is Florida States last ACC game this season followed by the Nov. 26 game at home vs. Florida.Cook said he wouldnt discuss his future until after the season. However, he has been keeping a close eye on Ezekiel Elliotts rookie season in Dallas and how that could improve his draft stock.The position (in the NFL) was on the downfall for a couple years but guys like Zeke, Melvin Gordon (Chargers) and Todd Gurley (Rams) are doing a good job of showing how you have to have a running back to be successful, Cook said.Zeke is really showing how the position is valued. He can go 80 yards with it running or catching out of the backfield and he can block well. Those are the types of guys you want to have.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Joe Reedy at www.twitter.com/joereedy ' ' '
