ORCHARD PARK, N. John Riggins Redskins Jersey .Y. -- One week the Buffalo Bills offense is sputtering. The next its their defense.That leaves coach Rex Ryan having plenty of concerns he needs to address two weeks into his second season in Buffalo.Well, first off, obviously never expected this, Ryan said, opening his news conference following a 37-31 loss to the New York Jets on Thursday night. The Jets were a much better team than we were today, especially their offense against our defense. It looked like a mismatch.Ryans prized defense -- the one he vowed would be much improved over last year -- was porous.The Bills surrendered 493 yards offense, 28 first downs, allowed New York to convert eight of 13 third-down chances and forced just two punts -- the second with 10 seconds left. The only bright side was safety Nickell Robey-Coleman returning Jalin Marshalls fumble 36 yards for a touchdown to briefly put the Bills ahead 24-20.The Jets responded to score 17 consecutive points, capped by Matt Fortes third touchdown on a 12-yard run.Buffalo is 0-2 for the first time since 2010.And the loss to the Jets comes a week after the Bills offense managed just 160 yards in a 13-7 loss at Baltimore.The offense was much improved, with Tyrod Taylor going 18 of 30 for 297 yards and three touchdowns.Whats troubling is the Bills schedule doesnt get much easier. Buffalo hosts Arizona on Sept. 25, followed by a game at New England, where the Bills are 1-14 since 2001.Well right now it looks daunting against anybody, Ryan said. Weve got to get better, so weve got to look at the tape and realize it starts with us.Starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore had a particularly tough day as part of a defensive backfield that allowed Eric Decker to make six catches for 126 yards and Brandon Marshall six for 101.It wasnt one of my best days, Gilmore said. But Im not the person to put my head down. I know I have to step up and make those plays, so Ill do that.The Jets (1-1) snapped a five-game skid against Buffalo, which included a 22-17 season-ending loss in January that eliminated New York from the playoffs.New York also avoided its first 0-2 since 2007.FORTE ON THE RUNForte had 30 carries for 100 yards and matched a career-high and franchise record by becoming the 13th running back to score three touchdowns rushing. In two games, offseason free-agent addition has combined for 52 carries for 196 yards and added seven catches for 68 yards.I dont care, Forte said when told hes on pace for 450 touches. As long as we keep winning, I dont care if I have 1,000 touches.CATCHING ONEric Decker and Brandon Marshall re-established themselves as one of the NFLs top receiving tandems. Decker led New York with six catches for 126 yards and a touchdown, while Marshall had six catches for 101 yards. Marshall avoided a scare when he briefly left the game in the second quarter with what appeared to be a serious left knee injury.He missed only four plays spanning two series after having his knee examined.I thought it was over. I thought I was going to be fishing in my backyard in Florida, said Marshall , whose left knee twisted awkwardly beneath him when cornerback Stephon Gilmore pulled him down by his facemask.GOING DEEPWith an 84-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Goodwin and a 71-yard TD pass to Greg Salas , Taylor became Buffalos fifth quarterback to throw two touchdowns of 70-yards or longer in the same game. JP Losman was the last to do that in 2006.Goodwins touchdown was the longest by a Buffalo player in a home game.WATKINS WATCHBills receiver Sammy Watkins started despite experiencing soreness in his surgically repaired left foot this past week. He had two catches for 20 yards.FITZ-MAGICJets Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick went 24 of 34 for 374 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions. He bounced back after combining for four TDs and five interceptions -- including three in the season finale -- in two games against Buffalo, his former team, last year.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Sammy Baugh Womens Jersey . "I was fortunate to play many years at this level with a great organization and unbelievable teammates," said Hejduk in a statement. Sam Huff Jersey . Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. http://www.redskinsrookiestore.com/Redskins-Clinton-Portis-Jersey/ . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. NEW YORK -- Maybe you dont really need a fitness tracker.It might be tempting to get one, now that the weathers nice and youre spending more time outdoors. A Fitbit or an Apple Watch, for instance, could prove useful if youre new to exercise or looking to increase physical activity. They nudge you to keep moving throughout the day and track workouts like running and cycling. Many devices also measure heart rate and sleep.But if youre a procrastinator or have trouble staying motivated, a tracker can easily end up in a drawer. If youre already athletic or fairly stable in your routine, it might just tell you the same thing over and over again, which wont help much.I speak from experience, having worn as many as seven trackers simultaneously to test them out. So know what youre getting -- and what they dont do -- before you spend as much as a few hundred dollars on one.---COUNTING STEPSFitness trackers typically use arm swings to gauge how far youve walked or run and push you to reach, say, 10,000 steps a day. Many also track floors climbed and calories burned.They can keep you on track if youre new to physical activity -- if youre the type to go for a walk at 11 p.m. just to meet that daily goal. But a tracker wont do much if you keep telling yourself, tomorrow.Once you hit that goal consistently, you might be inclined to leave your tracker in a drawer . But if youre competitive, Fitbit and other companion phone apps will let you enlist peer pressure by joining groups that track, challenge and taunt each other to meet and exceed those arbitrary goals. Some devices, like the Apple Watch, will also step up your goals as you improve.Of course, this count isnt perfect. Trackers might give you bonus steps for doing the dishes or even, um, punching someone, as theyre measuring arm movements. A bike ride also wont reward you with steps, though some devices will credit you with calories burned.---HEART BEATSMid-range and higher-end trackers offer heart-rate monitoring, but these arent medical devices approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.Measurements can vary wildly at times -- one I tried briefly recorded a deadly 243 beats per minute, and another a sub-normal 43 -- but most readings are close enough to give you a general sense of your workout intensity. A higher heart rate means your workout is tougher -- though heavy breathing and fatigue will also tell you that. Dwayne Haskins Redskins Jersey. ---FOR WORKOUTSThese devices are awful at translating steps to miles, and very few let you calibrate your tracker by checking it against a known distance. GPS in higher-end trackers help, but that drains the battery more quickly, so many long-distance runners might see their trackers die before theyre finished.Most GPS fitness trackers also arent as versatile as a GPS device fine-tuned for running, cycling, golfing or whatever your sport is. And while trackers are typically water resistant, few work for swimming.A tracker lacking sports-specific features can still be useful. You might run three miles with a GPS running watch and use the tracker to make sure youre not sitting the rest of the day.---HOWS YOUR SLEEP?Most trackers also monitor sleep, though Apple and Android smartwatches require third-party apps. If you toss and turn a lot, the tracker will mark you as a light sleeper. If you get up to use the bathroom, the tracker will note that, too.But is it useful? While a tracker might deem you a light sleeper, it cant guide you to better sleep. All it can do is recommend more sleep.---DO YOU HAVE A DESK JOB?Even if you meet step goals, prolonged sitting can be unhealthy, too. Many devices now have reminders to get up and walk around, though theyre useless if you keep ignoring the prompts. Sometimes they even nag you while youre in bed -- which is especially irritating if your tracker is also on your case about getting more sleep.---YOUR PHONEMany key features are already available on phones. The iPhone has Health built-in for counting steps, while you can get Google Fit for Android. You can also download Moves for either system. Beyond steps, GPS apps such as Strava will track running and cycling workouts.A tracker could still be a worthwhile investment for some people. The phone wont record sleep or remind you to take breaks, nor will it record steps when your phone sits on a desk. Microsofts Band 2 adds a UV sensor to warn you when you need sunscreen, while the Samsungs Gear Fit2 can track squats and other strength training.The key is whether youll use it. If you cant even motivate yourself with a phone, a tracker is just a waste of money.---Online:Guide to choosing the right tracker: http://apne.ws/2av5bms ' ' ' 
Villanovas epic national title victory over North Carolina in April seems like a lifetime ago. Greedy Williams Jersey . It camouflaged a pedestrian regular season. The hope and the expectation is that you wont have to wait until April to be hooked. The season is exactly 30 days away, so here are the things you absolutely must keep an eye on right from the opening tip:Villanovas Kris Jenkins will have miracle shot hangover Jenkins had the shot of a lifetime and an NCAA tournament memory that wont be forgotten for some time. But Jenkins will now be relied on to deliver more big moments, and the regular season simply doesnt carry the same adrenaline. Hard to imagine another comparable moment in his Nova career.Kentucky coach John Calipari still needs a returning player to be a star The Wildcats once again have a star-studded freshman class. The reliable and productive veterans are few. That means Isaiah Briscoe better be an elite player. Kentucky needs someone who has been in high-pressure games to reach its ultimate goal of a national title.Dukes Harry Giles knees will be the most discussed body part in college basketball Giles tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee in 2013. He had a knee scope this month and his return is unknown. The mystery will challenge NBA personnel, who said they will want their doctors to check him out before they can make an evaluation. Lets assume he returns at some point for the Blue Devils. Once he does, his left knee will be a constant conversation point right up until the night of the NBA draft.The ACC may be the strongest, but the Big Ten race will be the most intriguing Duke, Syracuse, Louisville, North Carolina and Virginia will compete for top-5 NCAA tournament seeds. And the league could get as many nine or 10 -- maybe 11? -- teams in the NCAAs. But Duke is the favorite. So give me the Big Ten race, because there Wisconsin, Michigan State, Indiana and Purdue should be competing down to the final weekend for the title in a razor-thin race.Wichita State will face its toughest season since becoming a regular in the NCAA tournament The Shockers have been the dominant team in the Missouri Valley. But you cannot ignore the impact of losing Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker. Gregg Marshall is an elite coach who maximizes talent, but he will face a hungry set of opponents in the Valley who are eager to take down the Shockers.Arizonas Allonzo Trier will be a national name by March The Arizona staff is convinced Trier will be the Pac-12 Player of the Year. He averaged nearly 15 points a game last season. With the top two scorers gone, Trier will have plenty of touches to stuff the stat sheet every game.The pro-Bob Knight loyalists will continue to shrink as Tom Creans Indiana thrives Knight loyalists need to get over themselves. Crean has coached the Indiana Hoosiers to a Big Ten title and multiple Sweet 16 appearances. This Indiana team has the size, depth and speed to again be in the second weekend of the NCAA tournament. If the point guard play materializes, then Hoosiers fans better deal with Crean creating a lasting legacy.The NCAA investigation into Louisville wont impact its season Louisville still hasnt been in front of the NCAA committee on infractions. The timetable to get a hearing and deal with a response and possible appeal means this likely wont ding the Cardinals this season. The worst-case scenario? A suspension for Rick Pitino under the coach control penalty. But that could even be a reach. Cant see a postseason ban after last seasons self-imposed one.NC State freshman guard Dennis Smith will be a part of the All-American discussion Smith is a special talent. A year ago, he tore his ACL, limiting the buzz that might follow him from high school to NC State. Hes healthy now, and Wolfpack coach Mark Gottfried has a star, a player who should be the best point guard in the ACC, and as a result, one of the best in the country.Bob Huggins will sweat less at West Virginia this season Huggins will still wear his golf windbreakers and comfy clothes. But he is optimistic he has another team cut from the same West Virginia cloth. If youre looking for a team that could challenge Kansas, lean on West Virginia as your choice.Creightons Marcus Foster will make you care about him this season Remember Creighton? There was a natural speed bump in the program after Doug McDermott left. But the Bluejays may be ready to emerge again. Foster is the reason. He was a double-figure scorer at K-State, and he should be one again at Creighton, joining Maurice Watson Jr.?in one of the best backcourts in the Big East.Dukes Grayson Allen will be hard for critics to hate Allen deservedly got criticized for multiple tripping incidents last season. But its hard to argue against Allens productivity. He enters the season as one of the favorites to win the Wooden Award. If he can emerge as a go-to guy on a team with multiple lottery picks, it will be difficult to dismiss him because of any past chippy play.Shaka Smart will allow Texas fans to enjoy the winter before spring football The Longhorns football program has been in a constant state of chaos. The basketball program has a chance to be the steadier of the two. Smart has a young team, but one that should fit his up-tempo, hectic and harassing style. Entertaining should be the key word, not heard in the fall in Austin.Court storming will no longer be cool The Pac-12 finally got the message that court storming is more dangerous than hip. The league followed the SEC and will fine schools $25,000 for the first offense, $50,000 for the second and $100,000 for the third. Other leagues will likely follow. The court of play should still be reserved for those who actually play in the games.Wisconsins Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig will be the social conscience of the sport this season Hayes has made it clear that he wont shy away from speaking out on social justice issues. He is passionate about the subject and wont hold back when moved. Koenig has already been active in protecting native land against the Dakota pipeline project. Wisconsin coach Greg Gard fully supports their activism, and its not likely to halt anytime soon.North Carolinas mens basketball team wont suffer NCAA penalties Coach Roy Williams has been adamant that his program wont get hit from the NCAAs investigation into fraudulent classes at the university. There is no indication that Williams is wrong. Tar Heels critics will be hot, but the only lasting effect this crisis will likely have on the program will be a PR hit, not a slew of penalties.Lonzo Ball will save UCLA An NBA assistant general manager watched UCLA practice in the preseason and said Ball is a pass-first guard who is going to get Bryce Alford the ball when he needs to shoot it. He will apparently find the key players when theyre open. Do that, and Steve Alford will no longer be feeling outside heat.No one needs a good start more than Illinois John Groce Groces season was dreadful a year ago. And it wasnt just the sub-.500 record. There were three arrests and multiple injuries. The Illini have their deepest team since Groce arrived five years ago. If everything is calm, the Illini can resume being a player in the Big Ten. If chaos resumes, then the crisis for Groce will only get worse.Chatter about Jim Boeheim coaching at Syracuse beyond 2018 will be hot Boeheim announced in 2015 that he would retire after the 2017-18 season. Yet he has another team that could reach the Final Four. His recruiting is going exceedingly well. Hes healthy. And he now has a close friend as a boss in John Wildhack, the former ESPN executive and new Syracuse athletic director. Its hard not to see Boeheim continuing if the Orange continue to excel.Kansas will tie UCLAs record of 13 straight conference titles Oklahoma should have ended Kansas streak last season, but the Sooners couldnt close. While West Virginia will be formidable, the Jayhawks are too loaded with returnees such as Frank Mason and Devonte Graham, as well as studs such as Josh Jackson. Kansas 12 straight Big 12 titles is as impressive a regular-season streak as any recently in college basketball. And there is no reason to believe it wont continue.Dillon Brooks timetable to return to Oregon will be a dominating pre-conference topic Oregon can get to the Final Four with a healthy Brooks. If Brooks foot injury is a nagging issue, the Ducks may struggle in their quest to win the Pac-12. Regardless, his injury will be a constant topic in evaluating Oregons status as an elite team, let alone a title contender.The Maui Invitational will return as the tournament to watch in November Wisconsin could be a Final Four team. So, too, could Oregon and North Carolina. Georgetown is a sleeper in the Big East and UConn could win the American. Dont be surprised if in March, we look back and see five high seeds who played in Maui.Markelle Fultz will be this seasons Ben Simmons Ben Simmons was the top pick in the NBA draft. But LSU couldnt get in the NCAA tournament or even the NIT. Fultz has a chance to be the top pick in June, but the Huskies are still green. That could be a factor in whether Fultz gets the national stage of the NCAA tournament or is relegated to the NIT.Kevin Stallings will coach Pitt into the NCAA tournament in his first season Stallings tenure at Vanderbilt was erratic, but his teams were always well coached. Jamie Dixon bolted for his alma mater at TCU, but he left a roster led by Jamel Artis that has enough to get to the NCAA tournament.Melo Trimble will realize he made the right decision to go back to Maryland Trimble wasnt going to be a first-round pick. He may have made a few big shots last season, but that doesnt equate to being a first-round selection. He will need to prove he can lead a retooled Maryland team back to the NCAA tournament. Do that and hell see he made the right call by creating more of a résumé.Bruce Pearl will be relevant again Pearl has recruited well at Auburn. And he has a win over Kentucky. Hes not going to be quiet. Auburn may not be a serious player for the SEC title, but this could be the season Auburn makes enough noise to be a story in late February.Avery Johnson, Mike Dunleavy Sr. and Terry Porter will make more fired NBA coaches want to coach in college Johnson has created a buzz at Alabama. Dunleavy is super-charged to be at Tulane. Porter could make the Pilots more intriguing. College coaches are now quick to take the money in the NBA, but fired NBA coaches will see college as a legitimate option.Cals Ivan Rabb will show its OK to turn down an NBA first-round spot Rabb will miss Jaylen Brown as a sidekick. But Rabb should thrive as the focal point. The talent in the Pac-12 will be on display on a nightly basis with competition fierce for Player of the Year honors. Rabb will prove that coming back does not always hurt a players draft status.UNLV wont regret not getting its first head-coaching choice Marvin Menzies wasnt supposed to be the head coach. Mick Cronin could have had the job. Chris Beard did have the gig. But Menzies was the fall-back choice, and with an impressive recruiting haul, led by Troy Baxter Jr., the Rebels should be a factor sooner than expected.Michigan State will be the toughest team to project The Spartans could be a Final Four team or an early flameout. The reason for the unknown? Health. The Spartans are already banged up. If they can get healthy, weather a brutal early schedule and get to Tom Izzo time (March), the Spartans will be in the thick of the Big Ten and national title race. Austin Seibert Jersey . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. Baker Mayfield Youth Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. http://www.footballbrownsnflprostore.com/Youth-Bernie-Kosar-Elite-Jersey/ . Robinson finished with 17 points, all but two in the second half, and Lawson had 14 after halftime and finished with a game-high 11 assists as the Nuggets handed Dallas its first home loss in eight games this season. J.J. Hickson led Denver with 22, and Kenneth Faried added 10 points and 10 rebounds. Chiefs have overcome a 17-point deficit to win twice this season. The rest of the NFL has done it a total of twice. ' ' '

Thankfully they did a great job without me. It just shows how good we are as a unit and today I just wanted to be really aggressive and that was pretty much it.He kept hitting from 3-point range to keep the Mustangs at bay. The closest they got in the second half was 13 points when they hit two 3s to open the second half.Coach has been giving me the green light to not worry about the missed shots, Walton said. I miss a couple, I kind of shake it off. I feel like my guys had confidence in me as well, so that does wonders for my confidence as well.Walton, who had seven 3s total in the first three games, was 4 of 6 from 3 in the first half as Michigan took control right away and went on to a 44-25 halftime lead.Zak Irvin, the tournament MVP, added 16 points for the Wolverines (4-0), while Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman had 12.The last loss we had to them, we basically got punked throughout the whole game and we knew we werent going to let that happen this game, Irvin said of the 24-point loss. We came out with a chip on our shoulder. Derrick really started it off on the offensive end but also collectively on the defensive end.

Are you a sports fan?Its an innocuous question, one that usually prompts a benign response. For author and comedian Sara Benincasa, considering the roots of her admittedly limited fandom brought on tears.Id invited Benincasa on my Thats What She Said podcast after reading her hilarious, viral piece Why Am I So Fat? Her interest in sports was immaterial to the invite, but I was curious -- even more so when the topic churned up such emotion.I was raised on sports metaphors; you know? she said. For somebody who doesnt follow sports that closely I feel weirdly comfortable in a sports-related environment. My dad was a Yankees fan, which was a great thing to be when I was growing up. And he was a Jets fan, which has never been a great thing to be, except maybe in 1969.Ill cry if I talk about my dad, she continued, doing that sort of half-laughing, half-crying thing a person does when theyre surprised by their own emotions. I talk to my friend Peggy OLeary, who will laugh at this, because she comes from an Eagles family. And we talk about the value of losing and, like, growing up with loss. It teaches you something that sports is about. Sorry Im crying! Oh my God!Yeah, why are you crying? I asked.Im also laughing, like a hysterical person, said Benincasa. I think its about my dad. I love my dad a lot.Is he still with us?He is! Hes super not dead! I think I just appreciate the value of somebody loving losers. Just knowing theyre going to break your heart. Theyre always going to break your heart. Its always going to happen...And he still does it.It turns out, even if youre not really a sports fan -- even if you give zero you-know-whats -- the Jets can still make you cry.They just did it again on Sunday. AA one-point loss to the Bengals accomplished via a missed extra point, a late interception and a surrendered field goal with seconds to play -- so Jets. Marcus Davenport Youth Jersey. The New Jersey-based team with the New York name once again flexed its masochistic muscle, reminding fans that the Jets can make even a Week 1 loss hurt like hell.For Benincasa, choosing to suffer that inevitable Jets heartbreak over and over is so endearing it elicits tears. Those of us with closets full of numbered clothes and vacations planned around away games understand how mood-altering a teams effort can be, and our friends and family feel it, too. It can be difficult to get inside someone elses appreciation for a great movie, song or piece of art, but somehow it seems we can feel their anguish or joy after an important game.Sports are a powerful mess of civic pride, childhood memories, nostalgia and hero worship. For some families, game day means a rare safe space to share. Political differences are put aside, arguments are shelved and the TV remote briefly loses its status as a catalyst for a wrestling match.Families bond over matching jerseys, the creation of a new tailgate snack or the backstory of a popular player. Parents teach their kids which team to root for, how to throw a spiral, what a rub route looks like and how to balance a helmet full of a nachos and a giant soda while walking up a steep flight of 400-level stairs.A bond is formed, even for folks who share sports from the periphery, like Benincasa. For her, football means getting to see her fathers heart through his love for the Jets. ' ' '

He stayed in the Twin Cities during the teams recent three-game road trip to rehab his injury and was able to practice fully on Friday.Getting Rubio back will be key for the Timberwolves, who are off to a disappointing 2-5 start. Rookie Kris Dunn started in his place and second-year player Tyus Jones served as the primary backup. Nike Pegasus 34 Precio . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars.

Darren Helm scored on Detroits sixth attempt in the shootout and then Jonas Gustavsson stopped Andrew Shaws shot, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. http://www.siyaguna.com/nike-shox-nz.html . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury.VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Whitecaps will be without their top central defender Saturday when they host the New England Revolution. Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie said Tuesday he does not expect Andy OBrien to play. OBrien suffered a hamstring injury in a weekend loss at Seattle, and remains out indefinitely. His absence leaves the Whitecaps with a shortage at central defender due to injuries. Captain Jay DeMerit (ruptured Achilles) is out indefinitely while Brad Rusin (calf) is at least two weeks away from returning, and Carlyle Mitchell, recalled from lower-tier Edmonton, is recuperating from an ankle injury. "Its just the timing," Rennie of the impact of the injuries. "Its unfortunate that theyre all hurt at the same time. Ive never really seen that. In recent times, there was one or two players in similar positions. "But to lose four is tough. Its hard to deal with." OBriens injury resulted two days after the Whitecaps traded versatile veteran Alain Rochat, who has experience playing central defender, to D.C. United for a pair of draft picks. Rennie said an MRI showed that OBriens injury "doesnt seem too major," but there is no timeline for his return. Mitchell, who described himself as 75- to 80-per-cent fit, is the most likely candidate to replace OBrien. "His ankle seems to be getting stronger, so thats an encouraging thing for us," said Rennie. "Obviously, weve got a lot of players out at that particular position. So there could be an opportunity for him. Hopefully, hell come through this week well, and hell be ready to go." Mitchell, a 25-year-old Trinidad and Tobago native who has represented his country internationally, played at total of five games for Vancouver in 2011 and 2012, but was loaned to Edmonton at the start of the season in order to get more playing time. He expressed a willingness to play hurt, if necessary. The Whitecaps (4-5-4) sit seventh inn the Western Conference while the Revolution, 5-4-5 before Wednesdays home game against New York, are also below the playoff bar in the East. Nike Cortez Ultra Moire Negro/Blanco. "Its a big challenge stepping in this weekend," Mitchell said. "But its all about three points (for a win), and Ill do anything to get three points, so the injury doesnt matter now." But the Whitecaps will be hard-pressed to replace OBriens experience, leadership and calm, steady play. He has quarterbacked the back line, barking out instructions to teammates to get in the proper position while playing every game this season and starting all but one. Mitchell is expected to play alongside an unfamiliar partner in fellow central defender Johnny Leveron, a Honduran international who has recently established a place in the lineup as a result of Rusins injuries. Rusin suffered a concussion before hurting his calf. Rennie said Mitchell, whom Edmonton coach Colin Miller has described as his best player, can also be vocal if called upon. But, Rennie added, it will be necessary for players in all positions to communicate effectively without OBrien directing the play. The Whitecaps were leading the Sounders 2-1 in the second half before more than 53,000 fans at CenturyLink Field when OBriens injury turned the tables in favour of the home side. His replacement, Greg Klazura, committed a foul as a result of sloppy tackling in the Vancouver box, enabling Seattle to tie the game 2-2 on a penalty-kick. And another defensive breakdown by Leveron and Klazura led to Seattles winning goal from short range. Vancouver striker Kenny Miller said OBriens injury spells a "huge loss," because he has been a "real presence" thanks to his experience and defensive qualities. Somebody will have to step up to fill the void, and Mitchell has a chance to claim a permanent position. "Its about somebody coming in with a charge," said Miller. ' ' ' 
Like Public Enemys It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, Brendon McCullums new book Declared is a ferocious follow-up, with many and varied foes in the firing line. Allen Iverson Grizzlies Jersey . (It is only a sequel of sorts, of course, following on from Dylan Cleavers short-format focused Brendon McCullum: Inside Twenty20, published in 2011.)Unfortunately, unlike Public Enemys effort, Declared is no masterpiece. Theres a dearth of dressing-room details, an unexpectedly high quotient of bile, and too many de facto match reports (Trent comes back to do his stuff - he takes another four wickets to make 10 for the match - and the game is ours).But I guess it was all part of the plan. The inside cover threatens: …as the light fades on his astonishing career, Brendon McCullum has unleashed one final time. The picture on the jacket is one of a half-silhouetted, unsmiling McCullum.The timing of the books release, in the midst of a torrid India v New Zealand series, was also eyebrow-raising. It felt opportunistic - with Mike Hesson, Ross Taylor and new captain Kane Williamson in a colossal battle for the one-day series, and needing a McCullum tome sideshow like they might a frontal lobotomy.I expected to be taken behind the scenes for a warts-cigarettes-and-all look at one of our most successful teams. I wanted back stories and observations and anecdotes and idiosyncrasies of a New Zealand team that we fell back in love with. There are glimpses of great yarns but they are scarce - one of the best comes early on when McCullum talks about borrowing his Dads company car, aged 14: So the light turns green and I plant hoof...There seemed to be so much to celebrate about his phenomenal career, so many memorable moments. McCullum won most people over with his efforts in playing a bazillion consecutive matches for New Zealand, leading the team into the World Cup final in a glory run of epic proportions, transcending even Martin Crowe en route to scoring the countrys inaugural Test triple-century, and outblasting the Master Blaster with the fastest Test hundred in history.But best of all, he played the lead role in transforming a team of underperforming prima donnas into a team with character, guts and humility. All these glorious episodes are in Declared, but the passages that are most prominent are about legal battles or backroom antagonism. McCullum is a man of the people - he is revered by most. He didnt need to write a book to get the public onside by explaining the details of the respective Taylor and Cairns fiascos. Both are given extensive coverage, blow by bitter blow, in the book and are mentioned before page 30.Dont misunderstand me, I love that McCullum was prepared to put his thoughts down on the page - hallelujah to the end of platitudes and boringness in New Zealand cricket books. But I was taken aback at the proportion of anger and splenetic frustration in the 272 pages.The motivation for the book appears to be putting the story straight on a few fronts, and although some of the targets are predictable (such as John Parker, Chris Cairns and Glenn Turner) there are subtle and spiky barbs reserved for others too, including Stephen Fleming, Dave Currie, Ross Taylor, John Wright, Daniel Vettori, Kerry Schwalger, Martin Guptill, Mark Greatbatch, and Nigel Llong.McCullum reserves a special focus for the many scathing words penned about him by Fairfax newspaper columnist Mark Reason. I think McCullums riposte about Reason writing from an elevated position, looking down on the rest of us, or maybe just me is a mistake - his target is an agent provocateur and being enticed into a back and forth is a hopeless cause.Predictably, Reason has already returned fire: Dont you think your readers might have been more interested in the beauty of Virat Kohlis game, why Steve Smith constantly fidgets with his box and if Mitchell Johnson ever terrified you?Declared is an easy read, and there is plenty of protein to digest here. But part of me felt sad at the end of it.Maybe it was the kind of manuscript that needed to be left on the shelf for a while, so the trials and tribulations were less raw. I suspect a longer period of reflection could have enabled a more measured assessment of his career. The result may have been less headline-grabbing but allowed more of McCullums love of the game, his cricket philosophies, his wry or kneejerk observations, and pride in his teams collective achievements to shine through.Or perhaps he could have just left the superb words of his Cowdrey Lecture untouched as the final, kinder words on his stellar career: I have retired from first-class and international cricket without memories of aggregates, runs, wickets, catches or matches won. Rather, I treasure the memories of playing with and against so many wonderful people - as my father did before me.Declared by Brendon McCullum with Greg McGee Upstart Press, 2016 NZ$49.99 Lorenzen Wright Grizzlies Jersey . 1 position.

In a year that already has proved to be massive for the UFC, with one major card after another, UFC 205 on Nov. Eric Gordon Jersey . 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York looks to be the biggest and most important of them all. In honor of such a marquee event, ESPN.com is providing dedicated previews to all 13 bouts on the card, breaking down whats at stake and projecting who will win, along with quotes and statistics for each fighter.Womens bantamweights: Liz Carmouche (10-5) vs. Katlyn Chookagian (8-0)Odds as of Nov. 2: Carmouche +165; Chookagian -190Whats at stake?Carmouche ready to end unwanted layoffAfter her last fight in April 2015, Carmouche asked the UFC for a short break to get some personal affairs in order. The problem was, once she was ready to start up again, the promotion evidently wasnt on the same page.Feels like Ive been asking to fight for a full year now, Carmouche said. I honestly dont know what happened. I thought maybe Id made someone mad and got blacklisted. The only thing I can imagine is discussions for the purchase of the UFC put things on hold -- but if booking me to a huge card in New York was their way of saying, Sorry this took so long, Ill take it.Carmouche, 32, did participate in an Eddie Bravo Invitational grappling match in September, which was broadcast on UFC Fight Pass. Even with the time off, Carmouche wouldnt be far away from title contention if she were to get past the undefeated Chookagian.I believe I built momentum competing in jiu-jitsu, showcasing all the skill sets I have, Carmouche said. Winning this fight just progresses that momentum and gets me back in title contention.Chookagian: I think I represent the newer generationWhen UFC 205 was first announced, the 27-year-old Chookagian immediately pulled up the UFCs female roster and liked what she saw.The promotion is not flush with female talent based out of New York. Chookagian, a Philadelphia native who now fights out of New Jersey, figured she had a shot to make the card.Im pretty lucky to be on this card, considering this is only my second UFC fight, Chookagian said. But I also had a feeling Id be on the card. Im pretty much the only girl signed in either division who is from the East Coast, New York area. I was holding on to that, thinking maybe it would get me on here.In addition to her locale, Chookagian is also one of the better prospects in female MMA. She started taekwondo when she was 4, and got into karate a few years later. By the time she was 15, she had already won an amateur Golden Gloves boxing tournament. She trains her striking under standup coach Mark Henry, who will be in the corners of Eddie Alvarez and Frankie Edgar on Nov. 12.Currently, I think the womens side of the sport is where the men were a few years ago, Chookagian said. I feel like most of the women are only dominant in one area of MMA. Thats why youve seen, in the bantamweight division, there has been a different champion every fight lately. A lot of that has to do with matchups.I think I represent the newer generation. I have equal experience in different areas of fighting.Statistical comparisonCarmouche: 10-5 record (2-3 in UFC); past three fights have gone to decision (1-2 record)Carmouche: 11 takedowns landed in past four fightsChookagian: 8-0 record (1-0 in UFC); five of eight wins by decisionChookagian: Defended three of four takedowns in UFC debut (UD3 over Lauren Murphy)BreakdownThis bout sets up as a potential passing of the torch for contender status within the division -- unless its just too early for Chookagian.Carmouche will battle a size disadvantage, which could make things especially difficult as grappling is her clearest path to victory. Chookagian is a mobile, high-paced striker with a jab that is pretty efficient at maintaining the distance she wants.What Carmouche lacks in size at this weight, she makes up for in strength. Chookagian also doesnt carry a lot of knockout power, which means theres a solid chance Carmouche will get a full 15 minutes to work her takedowns. If you look over Carmouches record, her toughest foes mostly have been bigger grapplers. Chookagian is definitely bigger, but her grappling is less proven.PREDICTION: Chookagian by decision.

Queensland coach Kevin Walters has resisted the urge to stake an early claim for Kalyn Pongas allegiances, overlooking the NRL prodigy for the 2017 Emerging Maroons squad. Carter Rowney Jersey .Walters officially lifted a 12 month Origin ban on seven of the eight players who broke curfew at Januarys camp when he unveiled his 20-strong squad on Friday.But Ponga was a glaring omission.Ponga, 18, is one of the NRLs hottest properties after signing a lucrative four-year deal with Newcastle from 2018 despite playing just two first grade games.It had been set to intensify the international tug of war over Ponga.The Perth-born teenager is eligible to play for Australia and New Zealand thanks to his Kiwi dad but is yet to make up his mind.Walters admitted he was unsure if Ponga was eligible to be picked for Queensland.But Walters claimed he would have overlooked Ponga for his Emerging Maroons squad regardless.I am not sure where we are at, Walters said of Pongas allegiances.Regardless of where hes at, hes not going to be selected in this Emerging team.We have got some great young talent coming through like Cameron Munster, Anthony Milford, Ben Hunt, Valentine Holmes.At the moment these guys are a fair way in front of him as far as football goes.Ponga may be the highest paid teenager in league history but Walters all but played down the hype swirling around the youngster on Friday.He has only had two games of first grade, he said.He needs to play bit more first grade before we have a look at him for these camps. Hes not quite ready.Walters welcomed back Holmes, Milford, Munster, Hunt, Edrick Lee, Dylan Napa and Jarrod Wallace to the squad despite this years controversy.The seven players plus Penriths Chris Grevsmuhl all copped 12 month Origin bans for breaking curfew at the camp.Grevsmuhl was not considered for the next camp after leaving the NRL last month to deal with personal issues.Walters was convinced Januarys controversy would be a one off and ruled out curfews or booze bans for the next camp in late January.I think they are men enough now to know what is required of them at these camps, he said.Walters said the seven players had shown they had learned their lesson.I think they showed with their football on the field (they had learned lesson), he said.We are going to need these guys to stand up in the next couple of years. For that to happen they have to mature as individuals and I am sure they have.The squad featured four new faces - Cowboys backrower Coen Hess, Melbournes Felise Kaufusi, Gold Coast half Ashley Taylor and Storms Christian Welch.

                                      WASHINGTON, Pa. Mike Ditka Bears Jersey . -- Two former football players for a state university in western Pennsylvania have been sentenced to probation in an off-campus beating nearly two years ago.DAndre Dunkley, 20, of Philadelphia, and Shelby Wilkerson, 22, of Harrisburg, each pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor simple assault charge and were sentenced to 18 months probation, according to an order dated July 1. Other charges, including aggravated assault and conspiracy, were dropped.We had always thought these were the less culpable defendants, which is why we offered the plea agreement, Assistant District Attorney Leslie Ridge said.The two were among six California University of Pennsylvania players charged following an October 2014 beating outside a restaurant that left Lewis Campbell, 30, in intensive care with severe brain trauma. Witnesses reported hearing the players yelling Football strong! as they fled to a car. Campbell spent eight days in Allegheny General Hospital but has since recovered.Corey Ford, 24, pleaded no contest to aggravated assault last month and was given credit for time served in Washington County jail since November 2014. Ridge said Campbell wasnt present for the latest hearing but had agreed with the deal offered to Ford, saying he wanted to move on with his life.Charges against James Williamson, 22, of Parkville, Maryland, were dismissed after witnesses and surveillance video indicated he hadnt participated in the attack. He filed a lawsuit a year ago against the police department and prosecutor, alleging that they hadnt had probable cause to charge him and violated his civil rights.Cases against Jonathan Barlow, 22, of Pittsburgh, and Rodney Gillin, 21, of Reading, still are pending with plea hearings scheduled July 28.

BALTIMORE -- The Miami Dolphins were sleepwalking through another lackluster season when the unexpected happened: They grew up.After losing four of their first five games -- defeating only the miserable Cleveland Browns in overtime -- the Dolphins finally realized winning in the NFL requires commitment and responsibility.That, according to first-year coach Adam Gase, is why Miami (7-4) will bring a six-game winning streak into Sundays matchup with the Baltimore Ravens (6-5).Weve eliminated all of the type of nonsense that most of the teams around the NFL doesnt have during the week: guys being late, guys getting fined, having practices that really are not energetic and youre not getting things done the way you need to, Gase said. Weve really turned around as far as a maturity standpoint of our younger guys doing things right (and) our veterans doing a good job of showing these guys the right way to do things day in and day out.It took Gase to change a culture that had been prevalent way too long in South Florida.I think thats how it has been here for the last how many whatever years. Thats just what it was, Gase said.And now?He makes it fun for us to come to work, running back Jay Ajayi said of Gase. At the same time, he stresses a lot of accountability for us.In a move that backed up that assertion, Gase cut defensive tackle Leon Orr during practice Wednesday after the team learned of his arrest on marijuana charges.The Dolphins new attitude, along with strong performances by Ajayi and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, have turned the team into a contender.Like Miami, the Ravens have rebounded from a poor stretch. After losing four straight in October, Baltimore won three of four to climb into a first-place tie in the AFC North.We didnt make the mistakes that we made in some of those earlier games, coach John Harbaugh said. Were improving as a football team. Were starting to play good, complementary football. Each phase is playing to the strength of the other phase -- field position, offense and defense playing to each other.Some things to know about the Dolphins-Ravens matchup:HE GOT A BETTER JOB: Gase interviewed with Harbaugh in 2015 when the Ravens were looking for a new offensive coordinator to replace Gary Kubiak. The three-hour meeting took place in Harbaughs office and lasted uuntil 1 a. Khalil Mack Jersey. m.I was kind of getting pressured as far as making decisions on some other places, Gase recalled. The fact that he did that to at least give me an opportunity to come interview there was something Ill always be appreciative of.Harbaugh gave the job to Marc Trestman, who was fired in October.It would have been great to be able to bring (Gase) here, but I think we knew at the time that he was destined to be a head coach very soon, Harbaugh said.TOUCHDOWN DROUGHT: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta has returned this season from a second hip surgery and leads the team with 52 catches. But he has not yet reached the end zone.No, he has not. I have actually thought about it, said quarterback Joe Flacco, who threw seven TD passes to Pitta in 2012 before connecting with him for a score in the Super Bowl.Flacco says he cant press to get Pitta his first touchdown since 2013.There is only so much I can do and he can do, Flacco said. You cannot try to make those things happen; they just start happening.NOT DONE: A slow start this season by Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake prompted rumblings he was in decline at age 34, but he has a sack in each of the past six games.The streak has increased his season total to 8+ and his career total to 78+.Wake is the only NFL player with at least seven sacks each of the past seven years.I may pat myself on the back later on in the year, or after Im done playing, he said, but for now Im still striving for more.RUNNING QB: Tannehill is the first Dolphins quarterback to rush for more than 1,000 yards in his career. He has been especially effectively recently, with 69 yards on 11 carries in the past three games.Its a weapon for us, he said. It keeps the defense honest up front when they have to stay in their run lanes.Tannehill has never missed a start in his five NFL seasons. He took several hard hits last week carrying the ball and acknowledged he probably should have slid on a couple of plays.Obviously, you have to be smart and not put yourself in harms way too much, he said.---AP Sports Writer Steven Wine in Miami contributed.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL.

Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999. Rob Walter has quit his job as coach of the Titans in South Africa to move to New Zealand and coach the Otago Volts instead. Walter, who was also a conditioning coach with the South African national team previously, will begin his two-year term with the New Zealand domestic side in September. He will take over from Nathan King, who had also been a member of South Africas support staff between 2009 and 2012.Walter is the third person South African cricket has lost to New Zealand since June. Pete de Wet, chief executive officer of the Dolphins, is going to head Central Districts, and the South African national team logistics manager Riaan Muller took the same job with the New Zealand team.It was a very tough decision because I have had immense joy, Walter told ESPNcricinfo. I felt for my growth as a coach it would be good for me to experience coaching in a different environment. Like any coach, I aspire to coaching a national team and through conversations with various people I could see that in the short-term coaching the Proteas was not going to happen for me. By coaching in New Zealand maybe I can put myself in a better position to do that in the long-term. I cant say I am leaving for lack of opportunity becausse I got the Titans job early in my career. Swell Flaske Gratis Fragt. Jacques Faul, the Titans chief executive officer, paid glowing tribute to Walters work with the South African franchise. Rob pioneered a new spirit in the Titans cricketing family, he said. He has transformed the franchise in many ways. It was evident in the way the franchise batting improved the past two seasons, as our top- and middle-order produced 22 centuries in two seasons. We also improved our consistency in the bowling department.It is indeed a dark day for Titans cricket to lose a coach of Robs stature. We want to pay tribute to his enormous contribution. We wish him and his family well when they embark on a new chapter of his cricketing odyssey in Otago, New Zealand.Mike Coggan, Otago Crickets chief executive, welcomed Walters appointment. Were thrilled to secure the services of Rob for at least the next two years, Coggan said. Rob is highly respected and will certainly add a competitive edge and an entirely new learning environment for the Otago Volts group and our wider staff. His experience and desire is first class.
