EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Tobias Harris Jersey .J. -- Defense wins championships, and right now the New York Giants are convincing many that they might be the NFLs best.Forget that they are ranked in the middle of the league. In the past two games, Steve Spagnuolos group has limited division leaders Dallas and Detroit to a total of 13 points, and Sundays 17-6 win over the Lions on Sunday came in a game where top cornerback Janoris Jenkins left early in the second quarter with a back injury.Add in another Odell Beckham Jr. one-hand touchdown catch to delight replay fanatics and the Giants have inched closer to their first playoff berth since 2011, and maybe more, with a win that snapped the NFC North-leading Lions five-game winning streak.This is really exciting, I dont even know the word to use, linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. Its starting to be a beautiful thing. Thirteen points the last two weeks, we like where were at now.The win was the eighth in nine games for the Giants (10-4) and it gave them their best record through 14 games since 2008, when they opened 11-3.The formula was the one the team has followed in Ben McAdoos first season: Just enough offense and a tough stingy, pass-rushing defense that has now come up with big back-to-back efforts against two division leaders in Dallas (11-2) and Detroit (9-5), giving up 13 total points.Eli Manning (20 of 28 for 201 yards) threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard on a 75-yard opening drive and then iced the game with a 4-yard TD pass that Beckham caught with his left hand and then pranced into the end zone for a 11-point lead with 5:20 to play.Norm, veteran receiver Victor Cruz said of Beckhams one-hander, which still paled in comparison to the fully extended TD catch against Dallas in his rookie year. The norm. I wasnt even surprised.Beckham said catches like that just kind of happens for him.You practice it and practice it, he said. Thats why you practice right hand layups and left hand layups. Its just kind of, I dont know.Beckham, who had six catches for 64 yards, almost wasnt done. He reversed field about three times on a 63-yard punt return that brought the remaining fans to their seats less than a minute later. The electrifying return was nullified by an illegal block, but was simply a thrill to watch.The Lions, who had rallied in the fourth quarter to win eight of their nine games, never came close to a comeback in this one as the Giants made them play on a long field all day.Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford didnt show any major issues playing with an injured middle finger on his throwing hand. He finished 24 of 39 for 274 yards and an interception , finding Golden Tate eight times for 122 yards.Theyre a good team, Stafford said. Their secondary is probably the best weve played all year. Theyve got a really good defensive line. We knew it was going to be a challenge going into the day. We just didnt make enough plays.The biggest play for the Lions was a 67-yard throw from Stafford to Tate that gave the Lions first-and-10 at the Giants 11, trailing 7-3 in the second quarter. On first down, Zach Zenner fumbled at the end of a 7-yard run after being hit by Leon Hall and Olivier Vernon recovered in the end zone.Obviously, we lost the turnover battle, lost the rushing battle. Its tough to win on the road when you do that, Stafford said. Weve got to look in the mirror and correct what we did wrong today.Matt Prater accounted for the Lions points with field goals of 48 yards in the second quarter and 33 in the third. The second cut the deficit to 10-6 -- New York had gotten a 47-yard field goal from Robbie Gould late in the second quarter.However, the Lions never got closer as New York limited Detroit to 5 of 14 on third down and 324 yards.CANT STOP ODELL: Beckham had six catches for 64 yards. He has 85 catches for 1,173 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, and is the first player in NFL history to get at least 80 catches and 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons.WINGY: Less than a week after being named the NFC special teams player of the week, Brad Wing of the Giants had a punt partially blocked by Brandon Copeland for an 18-yard net. The Lions got the ball at their own 43, but failed to convert. Wing had two punts downed inside the 5 in the second half.OVERLOOKED BIG PLAYS: Rookie cornerback Eli Apple made one of the biggest plays for the Giants, recovering from 5 yards back to break up a deep pass to Tate in the end zone early in the second quarter.I didnt think I was going to get there, but the ball hung up a little and I got my fingertip on it, said Apple, who had seven tackles. Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, who also had seven tackles, also made up yards to catch Tate on his 67-yard reception.INJURIES: Detroit starting CB Darius Slay left in the second quarter after aggravating a hamstring injury. Leading rusher Theo Riddick missed his second straight game with a wrist injury.For New York, Jenkins also left in the second quarter with a back injury and did not return. Backup QB Ryan Nassib was inactive because of a recurring elbow injury.

The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim.Thierry Henry believes Leicester are the most effective team with the ball in the Premier League. Claudio Ranieris side are five points clear at the top of the table but have the third-lowest possession percentage in the league and, speaking on Sky Sports Now, Henry said their efficient approach explains their success.The key of the game is to make sure you dont concede when youre suffering because at times in matches you will suffer, Henry said. On the other side, when you have possession, can you make sure you score? Leicester are the masters of this at the moment. They have scored 47 goals and conceded 27, and people are still talking about a fairytale. This is not a dream, this is reality.If you look at the numbers, Leicester have the ball for around 40 per cent of the game compared to past champions around 55 per cent.So with 40 per cent they can still score 47 goals and Arsenal with 50 or 60 per cent have managed 39 goals. It is more than amazing that a team with less of the ball can manage this, so you have to give them even more credit.They might win the league, and they deserve it. I will put my hand up, I was one of the first to say I think they will collapse because my belief in the so-called big guns made me think they would not accept Leicester in front of them, but they are well in front.Leicester beat title rivals Man City despite having 34 per cent of the ball, and Henry believes a focus on possession can be misplaced. Henry backed Leicester to go all the way and win the Premier League title What bothers me with possession is when, after a game that youve lost 1-0 or 2-0, you bring me your possession stats, he continued. Fake 76ers Jerseys. What am I supposed to do with that? If you have 10 attempts to hit the post, but I do it in one, Im better than you.Possession counts for me when you batter a team 4-0 or 5-0 and you say, We had 66 per cent of the ball, 10 shots, 10 on target, and then I can say, Yes, that was a very good game.But possession never gives you points.

A last-gasp loss to West Coast looms as a costly lesson for AFL club Greater Western Sydney but its one they have learned from. NMD Replica .The Giants slipped to fifth on the ladder after Eagles ruckman Nic Naitanui snapped a match-winning goal in the final moments of Saturdays crunch clash in Sydney.The (14.13) 97 to (14.12) 96 result will deny the Giants a top-four finish and coveted double chance in the finals - unless one of the leading premiership contenders slip up in the final two rounds.Giants midfielder Tom Scully noted on Wednesday that it was important his side shift focus to Saturdays home game against Fremantle.Yet he detailed how GWS coach Leon Cameron helped the side analyse the frantic final minutes of the one-point loss.We were very disappointed ... theres a number of lessons that weve learned, Scully said.We reviewed them really strongly and honestly.You cant afford to make mistakes like that in big games.If were in as situation like that in the coming weeks I think well be much better prepared.Scully acknowledged there could be more thrillers to come soon, with the expansion clubs maiden finals campaign fast approaching.As you get towards finals and big games like that, theyre generally pretty close, the 25-year-old said.Its funny, we actually spoke about it (what to do in a close finish) not long ago.A couple of things in our control we could have done better.Everyone will probably look at the last stoppage in isolation but leading up to that there were probably multiple times when we could have influenced the game differently.We cant get that back now. Weve moved on.Scully held out hope the Giants could break back into the top four.Theres still two games to go, he said.Our focus is just purely on Fremantle this week and North Melbourne the following week.The other results are completely out of our control.Scully was confident complacency wouldnt be an issue against the 16th-placed Dockers.We know finals arent far away but we cant lose focus on our last two home-and-away games, he said.

Western Storm 140 for 2 (Taylor 78*) beat Southern Vipers 137 for 3 (Bates 57*) by eight wicketsScorecard International captains Stafanie Taylor and Heather Knight moved Western Storm a significant step closer to Finals Day in the Kia Super League at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. Chasing 138 to win, the pair added 65 for the second wicket as the Storm won by eight wickets with 13 balls to spare.West Indies allrounder Taylor was once again the player of the match, with an unbeaten 78 off 51 balls. It is now three wins in four matches for these two sides, who qualified for the inaugural Finals Day on August 21 after Lancashire Thunders defeat to Yorkshire Diamonds later in the day.Batting first, the Vipers, who came into the game on the back of three successive victories, made a decent start courtesy of former England captain Charlotte Edwards and New Zealand skipper Suzie Bates. Each was dropped, on on 7 and 8 respectively, but they took advantage of some slipshod fielding from a Storm side led by England captain Knight.The pair reached 50 in the ninth over and carried on regardless as the Storm struggled to find an answer. It took Bates almost 10 overs to hit her first four, but when she did, off the bowling of Jodie Dibble, she struck two in as many balls.Edwards, who had ridden her luck, eventually picked out Anya Shrubshole, off the bowling of Knight, for 30, at 73 for 1, and though Bates continued to attack, the wicket certainly put a check on the Vipers progress. However, once Kiwi Sara McGlashan settled, the visitors added 37 for the second wicket, in exactly five overs. NMD On Sale. Bates struck a six over midwicket, having brought up her half-century with a sixth boundary four, and the pair took the total to 110 in the 16th over when Bates was trapped lbw by Knight, for 57 off 50 balls. McGlashan fell to Georgia Hennesseys medium pace at 126 for 3, thanks to a decent catch by Dibble at long leg, and one or two lusty blows later, the Vipers wound up their innings on 137 for 3.The Storm lost opener Rachel Priest, caught by Bates off the bowling of Tash Farrant for 0, at 10 for 1, but in Taylor and Knight, had two international players capable of winning any game.Taylor had done exactly that against Surrey Stars in Bristol earlier in the week, and the West Indies captain looked in decent touch again. Quick to punish anything short or full, the pair reached their 50 partnership in the 10th over with Taylor hitting Fi Morris for successive straight boundaries before being dropped at cover by Arran Brindle on 41.Knight chipped Morris to Edwards at midwicket at 75 for 2, off the final ball of the 12th over, but with Taylor passing 50 off 36 balls and still going strong, the game was always within the Storms grasp.Taylor and Fran Wilson pulled out every shot in the book in an attempt to stay up with the rate and won the day off the penultimate ball of the 18th over with Taylor unbeaten on 78 and Wilson 24 not out.

CHARLOTTE, N. Fake Air Jordan 1 .C. -- Steve Clifford said he isnt one to back down from challenges. That might make him a good fit for Charlotte. The Bobcats are a long way from being a legitimate NBA playoff contender. The team introduced Clifford as their new head coach at a press conference Wednesday. Clifford becomes the Bobcats sixth different coach since the 2006-07 season and inherits a team that went a combined 28-120 over the past two seasons, by far the worst record in the NBA. "Steve has worked quite a few years in this league and we feel very positive with that with our young competitive core that he is the right fit for us," said Rod Higgins, Bobcats president of basketball operations. Clifford said after meeting with Higgins and general manager Rich Cho last week he feels confident they share the same vision for the Bobcats. "When I met with them I left here thinking that the three of us could work very effectively together," Clifford said. His core players includes no big-time NBA stars, but rather young and developing players like four-year NBA veteran Gerald Henderson, second-year veterans Kemba Walker and Bismack Biyombo and last years rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. That may have scared some coaches away, but not Clifford. He called that foursome "above average competitors," and said thats exactly what he wants from his players. "I think every coach in basketball has his own priorities in terms of judging players, but for me it starts with competitiveness and then skill level, in particular shooting," Clifford said. "Coach (Bill) Parcells once said he wanted guys who are competitive on their own without the aid of coaches and in this league when youre playing four and five nights a week there arent many times you can address the group and have some magic word to get them to play hard. "You either have the right kind of guys or you dont. When you have young guys who are naturally competitive you have the opportunity to build the kind of culture that you want." Clifford said there will be an emphasis on improving the teams defence, pointing out that the top six teams in overall defence this season all reached the quarterfinals of the NBA playoffs. "Any good coach has a clear and definitive vision of how they want their team to play and practice -- and I have that," Clifford said. "I have seen what the right amount of work and the right amount of communication can do for a team.... Yes, I am inexperienced (as a head coach), but Im confident and I know how I want to do it." Clifford comes to Charlotte after spending last season as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Lakers. Prior to that he spent five seasons (2007-12) working as an assistant under Stan Van Gundy in Orlando. He was also as an assistant coach under Jeff Van Gundy with the Houston Rockets for four years and was an assistant with the New York Knicks for three seasons. This is his first NBA head coaching job. Jeff Van Gundy, who now works as a NBA television analyst, believes Clifford is up to the task of building the Bobcats into a competitive team. The Bobcats have only been the playoffs once and have never won a post-season game. "Steve is the type of guy who can coach young teams that are rebuilding, teams on the verge of the playoffs and experienced teams, I really believe that," Jeff Van Gundy said. "I think he has great people skills and hes a quality basketball coach." The Bobcats made the move to hire Clifford one day before he was slated for a second interview with the Milwaukee Bucks for their coaching vacancy. Clifford replaces Mike Dunlap, who was fired after just one season. "Anytime you make the tough decision to change you want, if at all possible, to address some of the things that you didnt get from your prior" coach, Higgins said. "We felt very good with making the change with Steve to adhere to some of the issues we might have had here, whether its on the court, in the locker room or trying to compete every night. ... I think were getting close to becoming a very good team." Wholesale Air Jordan 1 . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition.

The major mechanics of the set have already been revealed, now we look at the last minute releases, more cards that fill holes in various archetypes in Constructed or Arena, rather than meta-defining cards.We start out with Hobart Grapplehammer, a card that Im glad can only be a one-of, given that its a legendary. A two-mana 2/2 needs to have a good effect to see any play outside of Arena, but I think this is a good one in decks that use a lot of weapons (if you dont, you obviously wouldnt use Hobart). When you get this card off on turn two -- sometimes you dont have a Fiery Win Axe in your hand -- youre making those two weapons into 4/2s, starting your Gorehowl with 8 attack, or making a 4/4 Fools Bane. A dead card late in the game, but most low-mana cards are, even some terrific ones like Zombie Chow. Main downside for Hobart is that hes not as good in Pirate decks, which will play a lot of Rusty Hooks and the Aggro Pirate Warrior may just be a better deck (its looking good so far) than a low-curve midrange that would get the most from Hobart. But hell be around until 2018.Priest got most of the Dragon love in this expansion, but Wrathion fits into Dragon decks of any class as a source of high-potential card draw. Even if you draw just one card, the worst-case scenario for this card, assuming a drawn card is worth 1.5 mana, a 4.5-mana, 4/5 with taunt is hardly a disaster. Draw two or three or even more cards and this card is a value god. And since youre playing it at six mana, you should be able to play most cards you play fairly quickly.Genzo, the Shark fits the role of Jeeves, which got you up to three cards at the end of your turn (and your opponent after their turn). Though with a better statline at 5/4, the conditions make this a much worse card. You could play Jeeves in a situation in which you would definitely get three cards. You could choose to play Jeeves in a situation in which your opponent never got the card draw. But you cant do that with Genzo. If you get cards, so does your opponent, and while you can run a specific, aggressive deck that needs your cards refilled, odds are youll also give your opponent the answer they need. Too often, this is just nothing more than a volatile generic 5/4, which isnt good enough.Naga Corsair is essentially a slightly worse Captain Greenskin (he gives you +1 durability as well) thats slightly less expensive (Greenskin is a five-mana card). While thats typically not-so-good, Aggro Pirate Warrior actually has enough tools these days to be a quality deck, at least until people cut some of the greed out of the new Gadgetzan archetypes to deal better with aggressive decks like that. Its a fine choice though right now.Like Naga Corsair, Public Defender needs a particular deck archetype to exist and be playable. Bolster Warrior kind of hangs just on the edge of competitiveness, but with so many good Warrior decks, its hard to see this card deserving much play. If you wanted a two-mana 0/7 that really stalls the game, you should be playing Doomsayer.Ancient of Blossoms has an interesting statline, the first card ever printed with a 3/8 line. But even with the taunt, its not as hardy as the Sunwalker for the same cost, the divine shield and additional health making the Sunwalker a more active simple stalling card. Arena only.Defias Cleaner gives a Silence, but its a conditional one that seems primarily targeted to dealing with Sylvanas Windrunner, a 5/5 with the Deathrattle of taking one of your minions. Thats a little too niche a use, 5/7 isnt a good statline for a six-mana card that doesnt do much otherwise, and if you want a silence minion, youll prefer Spellbreaker to this. Toshley was a 5/6 that gave you two spare parts, which had wider utility, but that card was barely on the edge of the meta. Maybe if we get a Ninja expansion and this gets some kind of Ninja synergy (ninergy?) this might see play outside Arena.Smugglers Crate wants to have a home in an aggressive, beast-focused handbuff hunter. While that deck is possible thanks to very powerful cards like Dispatch Kodo and Rat Pack, giving a random beast +2/+2 just isnt good enough. While one-mana cards are rarely good late game (there are a few exceptions) this one is just a dead draw far too often for a meh effect. Just not good enough for Hunter handbuff.Alleycat on the other hand, at least puts two tokens on the board that can either take out a two-mana 3/2 together, or go face. Sure, a Mage or Druid can ping these out with the hero power, but would you really be upset if they spent two mana to take out half of a one-mana card? Slightly more utility than Fiery Bat and will see play in Hunter. Plus, the internet loves cats.Hunters, even a deck built around the concept, can only fit so many secrets in before the deck collapses. How does a Hunter fill in Hidden Cache? Freezing Trap, Explosive Trap, Bear Trap, Snake Trap, and Cat Trick all are more impactful to the typical Hunter win condition, so which ones would you cut for Hidden Cache? Im not sure this card would even see play if it gave +3/+3 instead of +2/+2.Weasel Tunneler isnt a good card, but its a lot of fun for a very important reason. One of the things that Blizzard has generally shied away from is cards that actually mess up your opponents deck. Sure, you could place a Mine from an Iron Juggernaut or Ambushes from Beneath the Grounds, or give them an Excavated Evil that they may not have much use for. But in the case of the first two, they still drew a card anyway and Excavated Evil has some serious board uses, so you couldnt really cause serious disruption to your opponents plans other than an annoyance. Here, you give them a card that theyll actually hate to draw. We need more cards like this. This card isnt powerful enough to see play on its own, but I hope Blizzard prints more cards like these, which represent counterplay in a way few other cards can.Here we see Blizzards continual struggle to make Freeze synergy a thing, something we mostly only see in Freeze Mage, which can use combinations like Frost Nova/Doomsayer and Ice Bolt/Ice Lance to clear the board and burst down the opponent, respectively. Outside of that, there just havent been enough Freeze mechanics and they just havent been good enough to get much traction. Freezing Potion and Cryomancer dont change that.Freezing a single target is a niche kind of effect that you like to Discover more than you actually want to choose to put it in your deck and draw it. Even at zero mana, I cant see this being included in even a Reno-type Freeze Mage and even then its up-for-debate whether it can make that cut. The Cryomancer just isnt good enough when you get that Freeze Mage. Cards like that you want a really good dream scenario and +2/+2 isnt one of them.Greater Arcane Missiles is nine damage for seven mana, but really awkward damage. Generally speaking, when youre doing this much damage, you want to be doing it for a purpose and the random nature of this card makes it difficult to work as a board clear. And with the random damage going off in chunks of three, youll just end up wasting damage on token-filled boards by doing three damage to minions with just one or two health remaining. Yeah, you can set up a clear board and do nine damage to the face, but if a mage can set that up, theyve probably already won.There are a lot of tools to make a Demon Renolock-type deck, but Crystalweaver really wants a low-mana curved Demon deck, maybe a Demon Zoo to get maximum value. You can picture a dream in which you have a Flame Imp, a Malchezaars Imp, a Voidwalker, and an Imp Gang Boss on the board. Or a huge Forbidden Ritual. In those cases, you can see Crystalweaver being an insane Demon-based Power of the Wild. But as any Zoo player can tell you, if you already have all these things on the board unanswered, youre going to win anyway. So in a lot of cases it becomes a win-more card, but its an OK one thats worth exploring, at least. A solid Arena card, however.Kabal Trafficker probably comes too late and without enough instant board effect to really be playable in a Zoo deck, so youd have to look more at late-game Renolock-type decks. Is a random Demon really good enough to play a 6/6 with no immediate impact in Renolock? Id say no, the Warlock can already draw cards at will and a Renolock will typically not be top decking. A better card than Sense Demons, which draws two Demons from your deck one-time for three mana, but pretty much anything in the games better than Sense Demons.The problem with Krul the Unshackled is that you need a lot of Demons in your Renolock to make this card good. A typical Renolock is going to have a lot more than just Demons, so to make this card shine, youll have to remove many of the cards that make Renolock work and replace them with lesser Demons. Sure, you can drop your big Demons in a crazy turn, but why werent you playing them already? At best, this card is for Wild, when you get a few more demons like MalGanis that actually matter.This article is part of a series analyzing the cards in the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Hearthstone expansion.

Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. Sports Jerseys From China . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. https://www.discountsportsjerseyscheap.com/ . The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. Nick Saban likes to tell all his four- and five-star recruits that if Alabama succeeds, all the individual accolades they crave will come with it.Good call. Last season, no players from a team that did not make a bowl game made the AP All-America first team. There was one each from a non-bowl team on the second and third teams.Of course, there are some excellent players on losing teams, such as New Mexico State running back Larry Rose III. The 185-pound junior was a third-team All-American and ran for 1,651 yards and 14 touchdowns for a team that won three games.Here are some of the best players in college football playing for teams that did not reach the postseason last year. And it doesnt look particularly promising for those teams to get there this season, either.Chidobe Awuzie, CB, ColoradoDid you know the Buffaloes had one of the better pass defenses in the Pac-12 last year? Yes, really. Awuzie switches between cornerback and nickel and became the first CU defensive back to lead the team in tackles for loss (13). The senior is a legitimate NFL prospect.Quin Blanding, S, VirginiaOne of the best safeties in the country, Blanding ranked second in the Atlantic Coast Conference with 115 tackles last season. New coach Bronco Mendenhall plays the type of aggressive defense that could set up the 215-pound Blanding to spend a lot of time in opponents backfields. If Mendenhall had a few more like Blanding, this rebuild would go much faster.Charles Harris, DE, MissouriThe latest in a recent string of excellent pass rushers for Missouri. The junior had 11.5 tackles for loss, including seven sacks, and 10 quarterback hurries. Harris led aa solid defense last season, though Missouris offense was anemic. Fake Sports Jerseys. Could be more of the same this year.Brian Hill, RB, WyomingThe Mountain Wests leading rusher at 135.9 yards per game. The Cowboys are still looking for a turnaround under third-year coach Craig Bohl, who led North Dakota State to three straight FCS national titles before coming to Laramie. Wyoming will lean heavily on the 219-pound Hill to break a four-year bowl drought.William Likely, CB, MarylandThe senior is a solid corner and one of the best return men in the nation. Likely averaged 17.7 yards per punt return last season and led the nation with 1,197 total return yards. He also played some offense late last season and new Maryland coach DJ Durkin has said he expects to use the senior in all three phases of the game.Mike Warren, RB, Iowa StateWarren should be right at home in new coach Matt Campbells spread offense. Campbells Toledo teams ranked either first or second in the Mid-American Conference in rushing the last three seasons. Warren ran for 1,339 yards as a redshirt freshman last season, tops in the nation among freshman. The Cyclones will need a few upsets and some big performances by Warren to get bowl eligible.EXTRA POINTSix more players set to star on teams that could struggle to make the postseason: Boom Williams, RB, Kentucky; Jake Replogle, DL, Purdue; Fish Smithson, S, Kansas; Matt Milano, LB, Boston College; Matt Davis, QB, SMU; Devonte Boyd, WR, UNLV.---Follow Ralph D.

BERKELEY, Calif. Air Max Plus Cheap . -- Davis Webb punctuated his one-year career at California with a pair of touchdown passes, a milestone achievement shared by only one other quarterback in school history and a legacy of work ethic that coach Sonny Dykes couldnt stop gushing over.Barring a surprise invitation to the postseason for his Golden Bears teammates, Webbs next pass will be thrown at the Senior Bowl before he tries to make the leap to the NFL.Webb became the second quarterback in school history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season, Matt Anderson tied a team record with five field goals and California beat UCLA 36-10 at Memorial Stadium on Saturday.Thats probably the most talented defense in the Pac-12, top to bottom, Webb said of the Bruins. We basically dominated the entire game in moving the ball.Webb completed 32 of 48 attempts for 301 yards in his final game with the Golden Bears. He threw touchdown passes of 7 and 2 yards, giving Webb 37 this season.A graduate transfer who played three seasons at Texas Tech, Webb finished his one-year career at California with 4,295 yards -- second only to Jared Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in this years NFL draft who threw for 4,719 yards in 2015.His impact will be felt in our program for a long time just because of his work ethic and dedication, Dykes said. Hes a great example for the rest of our players, especially our quarterbacks, about the time that it takes to be a great quarterback at this level. Hes got a really bright future in front of him and I cant wait to watch him play on Sundays.Wide receiver Chad Hansen, who caught 11 touchdown passes this season, said Webb set the tone for this season last summer.I knew that he was going to be a really good quarterback, Hansen said. Obviously he has talent but the stuff he did off the field really helped him.Anderson converted field goal from 43, 25, 44, 24 and 19 yards to set the Bears modern day scoring record with 111 points. That matched the school record set by Mark Jensen in 2002.California (3-6, 5-7) also snapped a four-game losing streak overall to keep its slim postseason hopes alive. If there are not enough six-win teams to fill out the bowl games, invitations are sent out to teams with five wins based on Academic Progress Rate.UCLA (2-7, 4-8) has no such hopes after ending its disappointing season with a thud in the Pac-12 finale. The Bruins lost for the sixth time in seven games and matched their worst record since 1999.THE TAKEAWAYUCLA: The loss was just the latest in a long series of disappointments for Mora and the Bruins, who face a huge uphill climb to turn the program around. UCLA never really recovered from losing quarterback Josh Rosen to injury. Moras job isnt likely to be in jeopardy but he has to shake things up in the offseason and might start by making some changes to his staff of assistants, particularly on the offensive side.In order for us to get back to where we want to be, we all have to resist the urge to look somewhere else for the problem and look at ourselves first, Mora said. If we can do that first, then we can come up with the solutions that are necessary to be a good football team again.California: The Bears actually played well defensively, although the Bruins gave them plenty of help. They also had good balance on offense with running back Khalfani Muhammad rushing for 116 yards on 29 carries. Hansen had another strong game (10-156) and now must consider whether to leave for the NFL or come back for his senior season, though in the postgame he sounded like hes intent on staying in college.OVER THE TOPCalifornias 330-pound fullback Malik Jackson scored on a 1-yard dive when he tried to leap over the pile and got the nose of the football across the goal line.It didnt surprise me because he is such a good athlete, Dykes said. Thats something weve had in our gameplan for a while and we havent had an opportunity to use it until tonight.UP NEXTCalifornia: The Bears will sit back and await word on whether or not theyll be going to a bowl game. Its a longshot at this point but its better than no shot at all.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org Air Max Plus Clearance .com) - Yankee Stadium is the home of the Bronx Bombers, but on Sunday afternoon it will open its gates to host the latest addition of the Hudson River Rivalry.

TORONTO -- LeBron James has played in the NBA Finals seven times and the Olympics three times, racking up experiences as a competitor like few ever have. Now he wants to round out his résumée as a spectator.James attended the Cleveland Indians 5-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the World Series this week and called it a bucket list night.What other sporting events would James like to see in person before his time is done?Ive been in the playoffs for 12 straight years, so the Kentucky Derby doesnt allow me as far as that, James said before Cleveland Cavaliers shootaround Friday.The 2016 Kentucky Derby was run May 7 while James and the Cavs were in Atlanta preparing to play Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals the next day, for instance.James also put trekking to Monaco to witness the F1 Grand Prix near the top of his to-do list.Its not like he hasnt collected coveted ticket stubs already, though. He flew to Arlington, Texas, for Ohio States 42-20 win over Oregon in the 2015 College Football Playoff championship at AT&T Stadium. Hes been to home football games for both the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium and the Ducks at Autzen Stadium, to boot.James issue has been finding the time. For Ohio States national championship, James just so happened to have a road game in Phoenix the next day so he was able to make the relatively short flight from Arizona to Texas and back.During the NBA lockout in 2011 he had plenty of free time, of course, and used it to attend an Alabbama-LSU football game in Tuscaloosa as well as a Premier League match between Liverpool and Manchester United in England. Air Max Plus Sale. With the NBA season stretching from early October until late June (at least for James, with his six-year streak of reaching the Finals intact), the rest of his wish list will have to wait.After I retire, James said. Those are some of my (goals): couple football stadiums, college football stadiums Id like to go to ... It has nothing to do about money and accessibility, its about my schedule.James later rattled off a handful of college stadiums that he wants to hit first: Notre Dame Stadium, Michigan Stadium (University of Michigan), Kyle Field (Texas A&M University), Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (University of Florida), Beaver Stadium (Penn State University), Neyland Stadium (University of Tennessee) and Doak Campbell Stadium (Florida State University). His top NFL targets are Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers) and Soldier Field (Chicago Bears).While James list is certainly ambitious, it has its limitations. For one, you wont see him tying a red bandana around his neck in Pamplona, Spain.Youre talking about (Dwyane) Wade? James shot back when asked if he wanted to run with the bulls, connecting the question to the Chicago Bulls. I was about to say, dont start that, man. No, Im not running with no damn bulls. Im not.
