BOULDER, Colo. Puma Suede Classic Sort Hvid Sneakers 352634-03|Herre/Dame . -- Colorado quarterback Sefo Liufau attempted to somewhat downplay the significance of facing Washington State this weekend.Thats just difficult to do.Its just another game, Liufau said, that Id like to treat as a championship game.Because it really is that big.Very few predicted No. 12 Colorado and No. 20 Washington State would be leading their respective Pac-12 divisions this late into the season. The Buffaloes (8-2, 6-1 Pac-12, No. 10 CFP) were picked last in the South in a preseason poll and the Cougars (8-2, 7-0 Pac-12, No. 22 CFP ) tabbed to finish fourth in the North.And yet they meet Saturday with both in line to make the leagues title game.How many times in life do you get to do something that nobody thinks you can do? Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said. Its a pretty neat situation, I would say.No jitters, either. Not this crew. Not after turning around a downtrodden program and becoming bowl eligible for the first time since 2007.I dont get those (nerves) anymore because Im prepared enough and confident enough in my ability, Colorado safety Ryan Moeller said. Were practicing every week for a test. Youre studying every day, just like you would in school.So when it comes time to take the test, you see questions on the test and youre like, `I know that. Its easy, almost second nature. And thats how it is for us out there.Like Colorado, the transformation of the Cougars has been a captivating story. Theyre trying to win nine straight for the first time since 1930.To think, these two teams had a grand total of two conference wins -- both by the Cougars -- between them two years ago.Coug fans are always great, whether youre down or whether youre up, said quarterback Luke Falk, who was knocked out of the Colorado game last season in the third quarter after a hit. The vibe is just lively.Washington State coach Mike Leach has kept a partial eye on the rise of the Buffaloes. Hes been impressed, especially since this is basically the same squad that went 4-9 a season ago.They are playing harder and more cohesive, Leach said. They dont break out a bunch of bells and whistles and try to outsmart you. They are really sound.Here are things to know before Washington State and Colorado clash in a contest with huge conference implications:HEADS OR TAILS: The Buffaloes are 9-1 this season on the opening coin toss. Thats partly due to Liufau, who always picks tails when hes calling it.Tails never fails, Liufau said.On the flip side, Washington State has an intriguing coin-toss tale as well -- running back Jamal Morrow once appeared as a contestant on The Price is Right. Given that, Leach figured it would be good luck to have him out there for the coin toss. Morrow has been one of the captains for the last 19 games and the Cougars have gone 15-4. The team said Morrow is 7-1 calling the toss.KEEPING THEM HONEST: No longer is Washington State just a fling-it-all-over-the-field offense. The Cougars have a bona fide ground game thats scored 22 rushing TDs this season, which is the most since 1997.People have to play us balanced this year, because of the run threat, Falk said. Its really great this year to lean on that at times.MISSING WEAPON: There are reports that Cougars standout receiver River Cracraft tore his ACL against California last week and is done for the season. Leach wouldnt confirm anything, simply saying, we dont comment on any injuries. Hes a great player and still part of our team.Cracraft has caught 53 passes for 701 yards and five touchdowns this season.OFFENSIVE NUMBERS: Washington State averages 517.5 yards in total offense this season. Colorados defense allows just 308.4 yards per game.Statistically, theyre the best weve faced, Cougars receiver Gabe Marks said. Theyve got some athletes out there.LIUFAUS LEGACY: With one more passing TD, Liufau will tie Cody Hawkins (60, 2007-10) for most in a career at Colorado. Liufau has already set or tied 84 school marks.The guys rally around him, Falk said of Liufau. Hes part of turning the program around.---Associated Press Writer Nicholas K.

DENVER -- DeMar DeRozan is quick to point out that his stunning scoring spree to start the season is no one-man show.DeRozan had 30 points, including four in overtime, and the Toronto Raptors held off the Denver Nuggets for a 113-111 victory Friday night.It was the 10th time in 12 games this season that DeRozan, the NBAs leading scorer, has reached 30 points -- most of any player in the league.Ive had a lot of help, DeRozan said. People have looked for me within the offense. Tonight it was JV (center Jonas Valanciunas) setting screens for me. When the defense packed it in on him, he got me the ball for shots.DeRozan also gave credit to Terrence Ross, who hit a 3-pointer with 37.6 seconds left in the extra period to put Toronto up by two.Terrence has heart and he is more than capable of making a big shot, DeRozan said. You know when you have another threat like that out there who is going to play extremely hard on both ends, its great.Denvers Emmanuel Mudiay was short with a desperation heave from halfcourt at the final buzzer.Kyle Lowry added 18 points and 13 assists for the Raptors, who swept the two-game season series.Mudiay and Wilson Chandler each scored 25 points to lead the Nuggets, who have lost five of six. Denver also was plagued by turnovers, including two in overtime.Its the story of the game and the story of our short season, coach Michael Malone said. Emmanuel throws it out of bounds and Jameer (Nelson) steps out of bounds. Unfortunate timing for those turnovers.After trailing by five going into the fourth quarter, Toronto took an 87-86 lead on a 3-pointer by Ross with 7:57 left.No more than three points separated the teams during the remainder of regulation.DeRozan hit a jumper to put Toronto up 99-98, and Valanciunas added one of two free throws moments later. Nelson answerred with a 3 to put Denver back up by a point, but DeRozan hit a jumper with 15 seconds left as the Raptors regained the lead. Rihanna Puma DK. Chandler was fouled on a drive to the basket and made one of two free throws to tie it. DeRozans baseline jumper at the end of regulation went in and out, sending the game to overtime tied at 102.Behind a 38-point second quarter, their second-highest output in any period this season, the Nuggets took a 57-52 lead at halftime after trailing by as many as 12.Chandler fueled the outburst, scoring 12 points in the quarter.QUOTABLEWe fought to get to overtime but we had too many turnovers.

ST. Ed Davis Jersey . LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals will have to make do without All-Star second baseman Matt Carpenter for an extended period. Theyve struggled plenty even with Carpenter in the lineup.Carpenter was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday with a strained right oblique, and theres no set timetable for his return.Manager Mike Matheny said he delivered the sermon that this isnt a rehab that can be rushed. He recalled having the same injury as a player and disregarding medical advice, setting him back longer. The Cardinals were 3-5 and trying to avoid a four-game sweep by the Pirates in the finale of a nine-game homestand.Carps going to have to be careful with this, Matheny said. Its going to take those two weeks at the very minimum.Greg Garcia batted leadoff in place of Carpenter on Thursday and Kolten Wong was at second base. Wong was the starting second baseman at the beginning of the season, but Carpenter moved from third base to second base when Jhonny Peralta returned from thumb surgery.Jedd Gyorko, expected to compete for playing time at second base and shortstop before the season started, also figures to get plenty of work.The Cardinals are set at shortstop with rookie Aledmys Diaz, who replaced Carpenter as St. Louis lone representative on the All-Star team. Diaz was batting .319 with 12 homers and 44 RBI.The Cardinals purchased the contract of catcher Michael McKenry from Triple-A Memphis. Matheny said the 31-year-old McKenry, who was batting .341 with five homers and 20 RBI, was the best bat available. McKenry had a game-winning homer against Nashville on Tuesday night and has played for Colorado and Pittsburgh.Carpenter, named Tuesday to his third NL All-Star team, is the third St. Louis player in three days to go on the DL, joining Brandon Moss (ankle) and Brayan Pena (knee).Carpenter was among the league leaders in on-base percentage (.420) and slugging percentage (.568). He was batting .298 with a team-leading 25 doubles and 53 RBI to go with 14 homers.Matheny said he told Carpenter to take advantage of rest while he can, and then plan on riding it hard the rest of the way after this and put on the kind of finish hes had here at the start.The manager hoped the rest of the team would see Carpenters injury as a chance to contribute. Diaz got his break when Tommy Pham injured his oblique on opening day, combined with a hamstring injury to Ruben Tejada, and was among the top rookies with a .319 average, 12 homers and 44 RBI.Have a Moss go down? Opportunity. Have a Carpenter go down? Opportunity, Matheny said. What are you going to do with it? Brandon Roy Jersey . Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. Damian Lillard Jersey . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. . Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . If it looks like I am flying under the radar for this years Tour de France, that is fine with me.I can understand why thats the thought, especially looking at the calibre of favourites such as Britains defending and two-time champion Chris Froome, my old teammate on the Sky team and still a good friend; Colombian Nairo Quintana (Movistar), Spaniard Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) and even the Italian duo of Fabio Aru and Vincenzo Nibali (both Astana) are also strong contenders for the yellow jersey.Theyve all won grand tours, whether its the Giro dItalia, Tour de France or Vuelta a Espana, to illustrate their class.Me?Well, seventh overall on my grand tour debut, in the 2010 Giro, when I was not a team leader, is my best result; the only time I led a team for a three-week race, for Sky in last years Giro, I had to pull out due to crash injuries in a race that all in all was marred by problems.I have otherwise helped leaders win, such as Contador in the 2011 Giro [a win later stripped off Contador for doping in the 2010 Tour - ed], Briton Bradley Wiggins (Sky) in the 2012 Tour, and Froome in the 2013 and 2015 Tours de France. This years Tour will be my first with BMC, after leaving Sky, and my first as a leader ... or co-leader with American Tejay van Garderen.My goal? It is to be in contention for the podium. Why not? I believe I have the ability and form that includes four top-four finishes in World Tour stage races. Most important though is that I do the best I can possibly can without something outside of my control impacting it.Id be lying if I said there wasnt a bit of nervousness, but I have controlled everything I can to be ready. Im as in good condition as Ive ever been. Ive done the training and reconnaissance; Ive checked out nine of the 21 stages. I have had onlytwo hiccups. The first of those was the gastro that forced me out of the Tour de Romandie in May. Then I lost my podium place at the Criterium du Dauphiné on the last stage when Frenchman Romain Bardet (Ag2r) attacked on the left in the last 400 metres and Irishman Dan Martin (Etixx-QuickStep) went with him when I was on the right and caught in behind Froome and the Sky guys. Bardet and Martin moved up to second and third overall respectively, pushing me from second to fourth. But I still finished feeling very good about where I am for the Tour.Froome: A Mate But A Hard ReadI hear all the talk about how my Tour may be impacted by my friendship with Froomey.There was plenty of it during the Criterium du Dauphiné when people said I raced with him too much rather than against him. But the fact is, during the Tour the same may happen.We may face a situation where there is mutual gain to be shared by racing the same tactics.But that could happen with anybody. You still have to be one of the strongest to be up there in the overall race as I hope or plan to be so long as I can avoid incident or health issues.Even then, that does not mean I wont attack him. If I need to and can, I will.. C.J. McCollum Jersey. But being his mate doesnt mean I will be able to read his mind just like that. Even as a teammate, it was hard. He would say he is feeling good but you didnt know. It is difficult to read his body language. If others are having a bad day, you can tell; but Froomey is a hard book to read.Sure, at the Tour I will have to be a little guarded about what I chat to him about during quieter moments. But truth be known, the Tour is not the time to catch up with mates.Co-leading BMC With Tejay van GarderenAgain, a lot of people will be wondering how myself and van Garderen are going to go as co-leaders on BMC. But we have a good relationship. We have spoken and trained a lot together. We will just have to wait and see where we are placed by the third week.If we are both in the mix and strong, having two of us there should be a good thing.With Sky (Froome) and Movistar (Quintana) being so strong, it should not be BMCs responsibility to take the race on; but if we are both there after they do, it could help us.We like our team thats been selected, especially for the first week when it gets hectic in those early bunch finishes. We have riders like Switzerlands Micky Sch?r and German Marcus Burghardt to protect us from the washing-machine madness of it all. Another is American Brent Bookwalter, one of the most underrated riders who will also be good for the mountains -- where Frenchman Ama?l Moinard should shine. Think how Brent, Burgy, Micky and Ama?l all rode on the BMC team that helped Cadel Evans win the 2011 Tour, and you realise how much man and brain power is there to help Tejay and I. Add Italian Damiano Caruso for the climbs, and Aussie Rohan Dennis and Belgian Greg Van Avermaet, who will also get chances for stage wins, and we have every reason to be excited with our line-up.Nairo Quintana, Alberto Contador, Fabio Aru, Vincenzo NibaliSo, the other major contenders?I can understand why so much has been said of Quintana; I saw why first hand at the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya [that Quintana won]. He was so good. I just dont know how much better he can be other than that because he was flying.Its also been interesting to see Contador race so aggressively, but thats Alberto isnt it?However, I dont think you can gamble with your efforts that much in the Tour. You dont want to be in the red every day. So I think Alberto might have to ride a little more defensive. It doesnt make sense to attack when there are still three Sky guys and Movistar guys riding.I know there is a lot of talk about last years Vuelta winner, Aru; but his teammate Nibali, who won this years Giro, has also flown clean under the radar in Tour reckoning this year.Okay, he says he will be at the Tour to help Aru. But people forget Nibali won the Tour in 2014. He has now just won the Giro. He is coming in with no pressure. He will be dangerous.

The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. The contrasting sights of Mark Cavendish brimming with joy after winning Saturdays first stage of the Tour de France and Alberto Contador finishing -- but heavily strapped and grimacing in pain -- reminded us how unpredictable the worlds biggest bike race can be.And here is the exciting bit: The drama and suspense in the 21-stage race has only just begun. With 20 stages ahead, how the 103rd edition of the Tour will unfold is anyones guess. But looking short term after Saturdays stage -- 188 kilometers from Mont Saint Michel to Utah Beach in Normandy -- what can be forecast is that Slovakian world champion Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) is well-positioned to take the yellow jersey, signifying the race leader, off Cavendish (Dimension Data).To win Saturdays crash-marred Tour opener -- in which Contador was the highest-profile victim when he fell heavily on his right shoulder, elbow, hip and knee with 78 kilometers to go -- Cavendish outsprinted German stage favourite Marcel Kittel (Etixx-Quick-Step) and Sagan. Many thought Cavendish would be in the fray, but few expected him to win the stage in the sprint that saw forecast tail winds slightly shift, despite another crash in the final meters. The win saw Cavendish claim the yellow jersey for the first time in his career, and he now has 27 stage wins -- one fewer than the all-time second-best mark of French legend Bernard Hinault.The main reason for doubting Cavendishs chances was the amount of work he has been doing on the velodrome in readiness for the Rio Olympics (Aug. 5-21). He has been selected for the Great Britain team to race in the omnium and be the fifth rider for the team pursuit. Cavendish shot that theory to pieces on Saturday, and going into Stage 2 -- 183 kilometers from Saint L? to Cherbourg-en-Cotentin -- he leads the Tour overall, with the time bonuses for his win having him four seconds ahead of Kittel in second and six seconds up on Sagan.However, Sagan is best-suited of the leading trio to gain more time and possibly take the yellow jersey in Sundays second stage since it is a lumpier stage and, most importantly, finishes uphill. Cavendish is realistic about his prospects, but will certainly not go down without a fight. Hopefully I can do this jersey some justice tomorrow, Cavendish said. I dont know. Its been a very long time since we had a very long straight finish [like in Stage 1]. What will happen tomorrow? I dont know well see. I might be dead tomorrow.Pressed on whether he felt that finally claiming the yellow jersey would add to the respect of his peers in the peloton, the Manx Missile said: Its easy to forget that this is my 10th Tour de France, you know. From the beginning I had the pressure to win. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra Black. You kind of dont know anything different. Since those days, ever since 2008, its been the end of me: Do you know what I mean? I guess its something to talk about. Theres some great people in cycling, as well as some people I dont get along with. I have some incredible friends the sport has given me.Alberto Contador: The Tour de France doesnt end hereMeanwhile, for Contador (Tinkoff), Saturdays start was one he will want to forget. The two-time Tour winner-- and one of the major favorites this year -- was one of a number of riders who crashed as the peloton exited a roundabout 110 kilometers into the stage. There was a lot of tension because we were fighting for positions at the front to avoid the wind, Contador said of the crash. We were paying attention, but I saw a central reservation too late and the front wheel went to the side. Its bad luck; Im screwed.The sight immediately raised fears of how badly the Spaniard had hurt his right shoulder because he fell on that side, dislocating his shoulder, during last years Giro dItalia. Quickly, Contador, who crashed out of the 2014 Tour on Stage 10 with a broken tibia, had five teammates drop back to help him rejoin the peloton as it pursued a leading breakaway.Once back in the peloton, he first had to replace his right shoe that was damaged in the fall, switching it for a new one from his team car. This left him temporarily pedaling in a sock. Contador, his jersey shredded, then sought attention from the Tours official medical car. The race doctor was soon heavily strapping Contadors shoulder while he held on to the car. Contador eventually finished the stage in 86th place, but at the same time as Cavendish. (Race laws say that if cyclist crashes inside the last 3 kilometers of the race, he doesnt lose time.)A Tour medical report later confirmed he had not sustained broken bones, but the abrasions to his shoulder, elbow, hip and knee will make for several painful days as he recovers. We know how cycling is, Contador said. Months of preparation and the first day youre on the ground. Ill try to pass the next few days the best I can to recover before the mountains.But in trademark fashion, the 33-year-old was defiant about the crash ending his Tour-winning ambitions. My shoulder hurts depending on my position, but the Tour de France doesnt end here, said the 2007 and 2009 Tour winner. I want to be optimistic. Im thinking of taking a maximum profit of the hours ahead of tomorrows uphill finish to recover.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger doesnt expect his Sooners to reach last years Final Four-level status immediately with so many new faces.Thats why hes fine with the baby steps they took on Tuesday. Freshman Kristian Doolittle scored 17 points to help Oklahoma defeat Northern Colorado 87-66.The young Sooners have three new starters, and four freshmen played at least 10 minutes against the Bears.Theres not an unrealistic expectation from my perspective, Kruger said. Weve got a lot of work to do. We need a lot of reps. These games are all great for us. Every time these guys get on the floor and get a little more comfortable and identify their role in a game situation, its huge for us.Doolittle did his damage on 7-for-8 shooting and added five rebounds in just 18 minutes off the bench. He scored 11 points in the second half to help the Sooners pull away.Jordan Woodard had 14 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. He didnt know he was so close to a triple-double.I just got some rebounds, he said. I was just trying to be aggressive. Coach wanted everybody to stay in attack mode.Christian James added 14 points and seven rebounds for the Sooners (5-1), who shot 54 percent from the field.Jordan Davis had 15 points and seven assists, DJ Miles scored 11 points and Chaz Glotta added 10 points for Northern Colorado (2-5).Oklahoma led 40-34 at halftime behind seven points, six rebounds and four assists from Woodard. Northern Colorado scored the first five points of the second half to cut Oklahomas lead to 40-39, but the Sooners finally got things going. A technical foul against Northern Colorado coach Jeff Linder helped spark the Sooners to a 10-point lead with about nine minutes to play. Woodard sent the fans to the exits when he made a circus layup and was fouled to put the Sooners up 79-61 with about three minutes to go.The Sooners outrebounded Northern Colorado 26-16 in the second half, and the Bears commiitted 15 turnovers overall. Nike Vapormax Uomo. With their length and athleticism, they can make a few more mistakes than we can and kind of make up for it, Linder said.BIG PICTURENorthern Colorado: The Bears were battle tested with losses to traditionally strong programs Butler, Santa Clara, Arizona and Bucknell. They hung tough with the Sooners until the final minutes, and may be a handful for teams in the Big Sky Conference.These guys, for being such a young team, and a new coaching staff, they have not shown one ounce of fear, Linder said.Oklahoma: The Sooners struggled against a non-power five conference opponent for the second straight game -- they defeated Abilene Christian 72-64 last Friday.STAT LINESOklahoma center Khadeem Lattin had five blocks and three steals to go with 10 points. He spearheaded a defense that allowed just 36.6 percent shooting.He affected a lot of things on the defensive end, Kruger said.NEW STARTERMatt Freeman, a freshman from New Zealand, got his first start in Doolittles place. He didnt score and took just two shots in 13 minutes.Doolittle said not starting for the first time this season affected him.To say the least, but I didnt take it personally, he said. I have all the faith in the world in Matt to go out there and do a great job.UP NEXTNorthern Colorado hosts Northern New Mexico on Saturday.Oklahoma travels to No. 17 Wisconsin on Saturday. The Sooners will have their best chance to shake off their sluggish play and show they havent fallen off too much since Buddy Hield left for the NBA.Good challenge there, Kruger said. Kohl Center is a tough place to play. A top-ranked team -- we respect that. Weve got to go in there and value the ball and compete like crazy on the boards and defensively.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: .

Jamie Redknapp analysed Olivier Girouds late equaliser in Arsenals 1-1 draw at Man Utd, finding fault with Marcus Rashfords defensive contribution. Ed Davis Jersey . The French striker powered home an 89th-minute header to salvage a point for Arsene Wengers side on Saturday, cancelling out Juan Matas opener.Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain provided the assist having beaten Rashford down Arsenals right, and Redknapp was critical of the United forward after the game. Man Utd 1-1 Arsenal Im a big fan of Rashford, but I dont think he does well enough at all, the Sky Sports pundit said. When the manager entrusts you to come out and play on the left-hand side role, whether youre a forward or not, you have to do better.He gets beaten miles too easily.

Update: According to an ELeague spokesperson, The decision to replace Luminosity and SK Gaming was solely based on the violation of league rules and the agreements in place with all competing teams that were established prior to our first season.Original story continues below.Turner Sports and WME|IMGs ELeague announced Wednesday both SK Gaming and Luminosity were removed from Season One due to making roster changes that do not comply with ELeague rules. However, according to sources close to both teams and the league, ELeague was originally only going to sanction Luminosity, and award its playoff spot to its players, who now compete under the SK Gaming banner.This was prevented by a petition with signatures from the owners of seven participating organizations: Cloud9, Counter Logic Gaming, Echo Fox, NRG Esports, OpTic Gaming, Team Liquid, and Team SoloMid. The petition, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN, says that each team in good conscience, may not be able to compete if ELeague were to kick out Luminosity, yet leave the spot to the players, as it violates ELeague tournament entry agreement signed by each team participating in the league and the ELeague rules. Those agreements state that the spots in ELeague are owned and operated by the teams, not the players on the team.The petition was addressed to Turner Sports president Lenny Daniels, WME|IMG SVP and associate general counsel John Cooper, and ELeague commissioner Min-Sik Ko.The petition also outlines four different incidents, including the transfer of players from the Luminosity Gaming organization to SK Gaming, a tweet by Ko from May 30, and an allegation that ELeague was going to sanction only the Luminosity organization originally. Later in the petition, it alleges an inherent conflict of interest within the ELeague leadership, citing Ko as a former employee of SK Gaming and what the petition calls a well-known SK loyalist.Giving Luminositys spot to SK Gaming would have given SK a second chance in ELeague, as its original Danish team was eliminated in week three nearly a month ago. Since the Brazilian players who formerly competed under the Luminosity brand were still competing, SK would have simply taken over from that point.The petition goes on to suggest that ELeague can disqualify both parties and teams from the league forr breaking the agreed-upon rules -- an action that was taken earlier Wednesday -- but that giving the spot to SK would greatly prejudice the interest of the teams on the petition. Zach Collins Jersey. The original dispute between SK Gaming and Luminosity began in March after the Brazilian players, coach, and manager under the Luminosity banner at that time -- the likes of Gabriel FalleN Toledo, Fernando fer Alvarenga, Marcelo coldzera David, Lincoln fnx Lau, Epitacio TACO Pessoa, Wilton zews Prado, and Ricardo dead Sinigaglia -- signed forward contracts with SK Gaming to begin on July 1. In December 2015, however, the same parties signed a letter of intent with Luminosity to compete under its banner for an additional two years, meaning it would play under Luminosity until June 2018.In May, ESPN reported on the situation, with Luminosity Gaming owner Steve Maida accusing SK Gaming owner Alex Müller of poaching and tortious interference, as well as the players involved telling ESPN that they wanted to remain with the Luminosity organization. Via veteran Counter-Strike analyst Duncan Thorin Shields, SK Gaming said that it found the letters of intent to be invalid after consulting with legal counsel.On June 24, Luminosity and SK Gaming settled their differences and came to an agreement for the players to move to the SK Gaming banner. Their first competition under the SK banner is currently taking place at ESL One Cologne 2016 at Laxness Arena in Cologne, Germany.Although the dispute has been settled, the Brazilian players involved expressed outrage on Twitter, with TACO alleging that his team was not notified of the ruling before it was publicly announced. Other parts of the Counter-Strike community, including other players, well-known analysts, and journalists, have also been outspoken against the ruling.LOL was great to know that we are out of @EL via Twitter. Thanks @minsikko- Epitacio (@LG_TACO) July 6, 2016Cloud9, Echo Fox, Luminosity Gaming, NRG Esports, Team Liquid, and Team SoloMid declined to comment on this report. Min-Sik Ko, ELeague, and SK Gaming did not respond to a request for comment. OpTic Gaming and Counter Logic Gaming were unable to be reached for comment.

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is willing to meet with the NFL to discuss an alleged link to performance-enhancing drugs -- but only five days after a deadline the league has imposed while threatening him and three other players with indefinite suspensions. Asics Gel Hyper 33 Ladies Running Shoes .NFL Players Association attorney Heather McPhee sent a letter to the NFL on Thursday, accusing it of trying to bully and publicly shame Harrison without offering evidence beyond a brief mention in television interview last year that was recanted by the accuser.When it came down to it, (if) I got the suspension, the bigger outcome wasnt really worth it, Harrison said after the Steelers 17-0 home exhibition loss to Philadelphia on Thursday night. I wouldnt be on the team, it would hurt the team, it would hurt my teammates and coaches, so it was easier to do the interview.Green Bays Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers, and free-agent Mike Neal also were threatened with suspensions. It was not immediately known if a similar meeting was being proposed by the union.Im just glad the process is moving forward, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said after the Packers 20-12 home victory over Oakland on Thursday night. As already has been stated, as an organization, we support Clay and Julius. And were looking to get this resolved as soon as possible.The leagues deadline for cooperation from the four players is Aug. 25. McPhees letter says Harrison would meet with the NFL at 5 p.m. on Aug. 30 at the teams facility, and would only discuss the portion of the Al-Jazeera interview that mentioned the 14-year veteran.In the report, Charlie Sly, who worked as an intern at an anti-aging clinic, made claims of PED use against several athletes, including the four linebackers. Sly later recanted his claims.Is the NFL aware of any credible evidence -- other than the recanted remarks by one individual shown by Al-Jazeera -- that indicates that there is any validity to the remarks about Mr. Harrison? McPhee wrote to Adolpho Birch, the NFLs senior vice president for labor policy and league affairs.NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league has yet to respond to the letter.Retired quarterback Peyton Manning also was cited in the report, but the NFL cleared him after a separate investigation in which the former Indianapolis and Denver star granted interviews and provided all records sought by league investigators.Harrison is a longtime leader for the Steelers. Matthews and Peppers are key cogs in the Packers defense, and Neal spent the past six seasons with Green Bay.Harrison said he assumes the meeting will take place in Pittsburgh, but he said he wasnt sure about the date. Harrison added the team didnt approach him about his decision.Theyre asking me about PEDs, so ask away, Harrison said. You can ask me about PEDs. I never took a PED in my life and I never failed a drug test. Its simple. Whatever evidence they think they may have or reasoning for questioning is out of my control.Harrison said he wouldnt have a problem with filming the proceedings.Ive been prosecuted and persecuted publicly in the media by them for something I didnt do, so I dont see why we couldnt have the media there to do a live interview, Harrison said. They can ask me questions and I can answer them and yall can see whatever evidence they say theyve got or dont have.Harrison isnt sure what to expect from the interview.I answered all the questions that were in the Al-Jazeera that were in my affidavit, so I have no clue, Harrison said.The NFL first notified the four players Jan. 11 about the investigation into the Al-Jazeera report.Birchs memo to the union said suspensions would start the day after the Aug. 25 deadline, and would end at the discretion of Commissioner Roger Goodell once interviews had been completed.The four players have steadfastly refused to be interviewed without what they call credible evidence. Earlier this week, Harrison reiterated that he would be willing to meet at his house with Goodell.Affidavits were sent by the NFLPA on behalf of the players to substitute for the interviews, but Birch dismissed them as inadequate.Despite the NFLs embarrassing refusal to thoughtfully consider the fair question and viewpoint of a man who has performed his job in a public arena at the highest level for over fifteen years, Mr. Harrison has decided that he will act as the more professional entity in this situation, McPhee wrote before adding that Harrison would make himself available.Goodells power to punish players has been a contentious issue between the NFL and the union in recent years, highlighted by the Deflategate case against the Patriots that resulted in a four-game suspension of quarterback Tom Brady case and that of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who went to court to fight his suspension over allegations of child abuse.He can do whatever he wants, Harrison said about Goodell. Thats just the collective bargaining agreement that the players signed. Thats why the Steelers voted no.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Asics Gel Kayano 20 Womens Best Price .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win.

PHILADELPHIA -- Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is expected to miss up to three weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy on Saturday, forcing him to miss his scheduled start against the Philadelphia Flyers.His procedure went pretty well today, hes probably going to be out two to three weeks, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after Chicagos 3-1 loss. Thanks to our medical staff and the Flyers medical staff today, they did a great job of helping us out.Crawford, 31, led the Blackhawks to Stanley Cups in 2013 and 2015. Before Saturday he had started in 20 of the Blackhawks 25 games, going 12-6-2 with a 2.27 goals-against average, .927 save percentage and two shutouts, ranking second among NHL goalies in wins.With Crawford unavailable, the Blackhawks inserted backup Scott Darling as their starter against the Flyers and signed 23-year-old Eric Semorski to an amateur tryout contract.Darling allowed three goals on 30 shots in the loss. He fell to 4-1-1 and is expected to start most of Chicagos games leading up to Christmas.Its a huge loss, Darling said. Hes the best goalie in the league. He and Carey Price are in a category of their own. Hes been great every night and great for us all year. Hes also a great guy, one of the boyys. Asics Gel Kayano 20 Womens.

No time to put on a tie.Quenneville said he thought about putting Semorski into the game after the Flyers scored the goals in the second period.You almost saw it, the coach said with a smile.That, Semorski said, probably would have been a mistake.Semorski said that if the Flyers had scored into the empty net near the end of regulation Quenneville would have inserted him into the net for the final seconds.That would have been so cool, Semorski said. But I wouldnt change a thing. The experience was awesome.

MADRID, Spain -- Rafael Nadal reached his seventh consecutive final since returning from a knee injury by brushing aside wild card Pablo Andujar 6-0, 6-4 at the Madrid Open on Saturday. Robert Parish Jersey . Nadal had little trouble extending his winning streak in clay-court semifinals to 46 matches, polishing off his overmatched Spanish countryman after winning the first six games on the outdoor red clay. Nadal will now have a shot at his fifth title since coming back from a seven-month layoff healing his left knee. "I couldnt have asked for a better run of results," said Nadal, a two-time champion in the Spanish capital. "Five months ago I wouldnt have dreamed of this return. I want to thank all those who supported me through that time." He will play Stanislas Wawrinka after the 15th-ranked Swiss recovered late on to edge out Tomas Berdych, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova will play for both the No. 1 ranking and the womens title after each won her semifinal in straight sets. Nadal outclassed Andujar at the start. The clay-court experts surgical groundstrokes were usually enough to force Andujar to make errors -- and if not, Nadal knew when to go for a winner or approach the net to finish off the point. The worst moment for the 113th-ranked Andujar came when he ceded his third straight service game with a double fault. But in the second set Andujar shook off his jitters and had three break points for a 4-2 lead, only for Nadal to dig out of the hole and hold his serve. "I played a very, very good first set, playing aggressively," Nadal said. "Pablo played more aggressively in the second set and had a chance at a break, but luckily it got away from him." The top-ranked Williams will have a chance to win her 50th career title after beating Sara Errani of Italy 7-5, 6-2, while No. 2 Sharapova recorded her 500th career win at all levels after seeing off Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 6-3. Both Williams, the defending champion, and Sharapova arrive to their final in good form and with numbers to back up their bid for a title. Sharapova has won all 10 sets she has played at the tournament, while Williams boasts a 12-2 record against the Russian. "Of course its always tough against her," Sharapova said about Williams. "I havent had a win against her in a long time. But the great thing is that Im setting myself up in a position where I can try to change that around." After a skittish start, Williams rolled by Errani and broke her final service game in both sets. "I feel I played solid," Williams said. "In the second set more than in the first, I made a few less errors, which is something I needed to do." Williams said Sharapova would pose a different challenge from her previous opponents this week. "I feel this whole tournament I have only played clay-court opponents," said Williams. "All have been smaller than me. Tomorrow will be a different game, more power." On Sunday, Williams will play her first final on red clay since 2002. Last years trophy at the Caja Magica came on the experimental blue clay surface that was removed following players complaints it was too slippery. Sharapova said she was proud to have notched her 500th win. "That number is pretty significant," she said. "(And) no, (it) doesnt make me feel like a veteran." Berdych was on the brink of making his second straight final in Madrid after coming from behind to level with Wawrinka at a set apiece and then building a 4-2 lead in the third. But the Czech player squandered two break points at that stage and Wawrinka found a second wind to rally back. Wawrinka won the Portugal Open last Sunday. Red Auerbach Jersey . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Danny Ainge Jersey . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. (STATS) -- Theres still plenty on the line in the Missouri Valley Football Conference heading into the final weekend.While No. 4 North Dakota State is looking to extend its conference title streak, eighth-ranked South Dakota State and No. 15 Youngstown State have an opportunity to end their championship droughts Saturday. Northern Iowa, meanwhile, is in a must-win situation to reach the postseason and No. 23 Western Illinois hopes to add to its playoff resume.To have three teams essentially with one or two losses, I think is pretty impressive, NDSU coach Chris Klieman said of the title chase. It shows you the parity in the league and that every game -- even this week -- has a great impact on (the) postseason.Kliemans Bison (9-1, 6-1) are tied with South Dakota State (7-3, 6-1) atop the MVFC and can clinch at least a share of their sixth straight league crown with a win at South Dakota (4-6, 3-4). They captured outright titles in 2012 and 13 and also shared the 2011 crown with Northern Iowa and the 14 and 15 hardware with Illinois State.NDSU, which was rated No. 1 by the NCAA Division I FCS selection committee in the rankings that precede Sundays announcement of the 24-team playoff pairings, will try to avenge a loss to the Coyotes last season. South Dakota snapped the Bisons 26-game home winning streak with a 24-21 victory at the Fargodome on Oct. 17.NDSU should be feeling confident after Darrius Shepherds 84-yard punt return touchdown and Easton Sticks two first-quarter TD runs keyed its fourth straight win, 41-17 over Indiana State last weekend. It should help that King Frazier, who led the team in rushing before getting hurt, and Tre Dempsey, the clubs leader in interceptions, are expected to return from injuries.Were excited that the difficult schedule we have had and the adversity weve faced with injuries and stuff that weve put ourselves in a position at least to play for another conference championship, Klieman said.SDSU holds tiebreakers over NDSU and Youngstown State (7-3, 5-2), meaning the Jackrabbbits would receive the MVFCs automatic bid to the FCS playoffs should they end up even with NDSU or in a three-way tie with NDSU and YSU. Marcus Smart Jersey. Theyll try to take care of business on the road against desperate Northern Iowa (5-5, 4-3), which needs a victory to have a chance at the postseason. The Panthers, winners in their last two, have allowed just 15 points per game over their last four.Senior defensive end Karter Schult leads UNI with 67 tackles and 16 sacks. He was named MVFC defensive player of the week after finishing with three sacks in Saturdays 30-23 win over then-No. 19 Western Illinois (6-4, 3-4).Led by sophomore quarterback Taryn Christion, the Jackrabbits rank second in the league with 317 passing yards per game. They showcased a different side of their offense with a season-best 415 rushing yards in Saturdays 28-21 win over South Dakota.Now SDSU is hoping to utilize a balanced approach as it seeks at least a share of its first title since joining the MVFC in 2008.Their fans will show up and try to affect this game, Jackrabbits coach John Stiegelmeier said. This is a playoff game for them with a chance to maybe get into the playoffs and a chance for us to win a conference championship.Third-place Youngstown State needs a win at Missouri State (4-6, 2-5) and losses by NDSU and SDSU to claim a share of its first conference championship since 2006. The Penguins bounced back from a 24-3 loss at NDSU on Nov. 5 with a 21-14 win over Southern Illinois last weekend, while the Bears have dropped five of six following Saturdays 37-0 loss at Illinois State.YSU has won the past two meetings, including 47-7 at home last November.Its the next one on the schedule, Penguins coach Bo Pelini said. I havent really been a part of the whole playoff selection and how that works. Thats out of your control and you just have to go win the football game and whatever happens, happens.

The Kings won the franchises first Stanley Cup last spring, but find themselves down 2-0 in this best-of-seven series after dropping two straight in St. Louis. Los Angeles went 16-4 during the 2012 postseason and never trailed a series at any point. That run included a four-game sweep of the Blues in the conference semifinals.

If you havent changed over a period of time, thats a bad thing. I think me standing here is a testament to that. Most people might not see it that way.

He did not answer when asked if he went to rehab but promised he is much more willing to accept help.I have a great support staff here, more so than Ive ever felt before, Gordon said.

The change is going to be within, and we will support him through that.Gordon said nothing he could do at a podium would prove he is different. He said he simply has to do it in the community and with the team, on and off the field. His locker has been placed next to that of quarterback Robert Griffin III?in the teams newly renovated locker room.Hes the reason why I committed to Baylor in 2009, Gordon said. Thats one of my best friends. Its not a mistake that my locker is next to his. He looks out for me as part of my support staff Ive been mentioning. Guys I know I can lean on.
