He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. Ben Stokes last three Test innings against India in 2014, yielded three ducks. He made amends for his earlier failures in England, by scoring his fourth ton, which guided his side to a sizable first-innings score of 537 in their first Test against India in Rajkot on Thursday.India took the new ball at the start of play on the second day in a bid to make early inroads, but the hosts were up against Moeen Ali, only a run away from his fourth Test ton and Stokes batting confidently on 19.It took Ali just three balls to reach the milestone as he dabbed as short ball from Mohammad Shami past point for a single. Ali then switched gears in an attempt to push the tempo and smashed Umesh Yadav for three fours from the second over of the day. Stokes joined in on the boundary frenzy and thumped two fours in the next two overs.Ali made a rare error in the 100th over the innings, when he left a straight delivery from Shami, which rattled the stumps. India hoped that his dismissal would prompt a collapse. But they were wrong as Jonny Bairstow joined forces with Stokes to steal the session from the hosts.The duo added 99 runs for the sixth wicket from 21.1 overs and scored at a brisk rate of 4.67. India compounded their own woes by dropping Stokes twice, Wriddhiman Saha, the wicket keeper, the culprit. Cameron Sutton Womens Jersey. Stokes took advantage of the dropped chances and ripped every bad ball apart. He took 11 runs off Ravindra Jadejas first over of the day, then repeatedly targeted R Ashwin the moment he dropped short. Stokes added a brutal 65 off 95 in the session.Stokes, in the post-lunch session, adopted a more cautious approach as he approached his ton. He took little over 12 overs to reach the milestone, which he did by muscling Jadeja through the cover-point region for four. It was Stokes first ton in India. His four centuries have come in four different continents - Africa, Asia, Europe and Australia.His innings, along with centuries from Joe Root and Ali, helped the tourists post a massive 537 in their innings, which is the highest total England has scored in India since 1985, when they had scored 652 for 7 in Chennai during the 1984-85 tour. This is also the first time since 2009 when three batsmen from a visiting team scored centuries in the same innings in India. In the 2009 Test, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene and Prasanna Jayawardene amassed tons at Motera in 2008-09. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
Mahmudullah was celebrating his sides four-run win over Chittagong Vikings, but the tension that was palpable when he was asked to defend six off the final over didnt wear off even after the post-match presentation. Petr Mrazek Red Wings Jersey Authentic . The Khulna Titans captain said that his primary target was to keep Mohammad Nabi off strike but ended up taking his wicket off the last ball.This was the second time Mahmudullah sealed a tense win off the last over. In their first game against Rajshahi Kings, Mahmudullah took three wickets. Here too, he had three scalps and conceded just one run to take his side to No. 2 in the points table.I dont know, it just happened, Mahmudullah said when asked about he managed to defend six runs all over again. My hands are still sweating. I just tried to keep [Mohammad] Nabi off strike, but the Chaturanga [de Silva] wicket was also important. I got a lot of confidence after giving away a single off the first ball and then getting that wicket with the next ball.I dont want to bowl in the death overs but had to do so because my main bowlers had their spells finished. I have been successful on two occasions now, but it can be different in the next game. But I am ready to take the chance again.But the emotion was contrasting in the Chittagong camp where captain Tamim Iqbal was livid. He didnt single out anyone but he questioned the batsmens mindset after they wilted in the final over.We will keep losing if we play this sort of cricket, he said. Maybe the batsmen doesnt have problem with skill but theres definitely something wrong in his head if he doesnt understand something after sending 20 messages. We dont deserve to play here if we have to do spoon feeding at this level. I dont want to say the name, but I am talking about the batsmen.He praised Mahmudullahs nerve for bowling a tight final over of a chase, but said that it was for Chittagongs to lose, and they did. The match Riyad bhai won them, can only happen once every ten games. But he must be doing something right, now that he has done it twice, he said. Credit goes to him because he bowled well but I think we are more to blame for losing this game. We had two set batsmen in the middle with just six runs to win. Niklas Kronwall Red Wings Jersey Authentic . Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs. Ted Lindsay Red Wings Jersey Authentic . PAUL, Minn. . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. This story appears in ESPN College Football 2016, on newsstands now. Order online today!Leonard Fournette?and?Myles Garrett?dont need to fend off any preseason challengers.But not everybody has the same job security as Fournette, LSUs star running back, and Texas A&Ms all-world pass-rusher, Garrett.Heres the biggest position battle for all 14 SEC teams, presented in order of projected finish.East DivisionTennessee Volunteers: Left tackle?Longtime starter Kyler Kerbyson is gone, and RT Chance Hall missed the spring with an injury, so Brett Kendrick shifted to his spot. That leaves redshirt freshman Drew Richmond to battle senior Dontavius Blair on the left. Richmond could be the future at this position, but hell have to adjust after moving from the right side.Georgia Bulldogs: Quarterback?Pick your poison, Georgia. Graduate transfer and returning starter Greyson Lambert struggled deep into SEC play, averaging just 164.3 pass yards per game. Junior Brice Ramsey, the early 2015 favorite, punted almost as much as he threw last season. True freshman Jacob Eason, the top-ranked prep QB in 2016, is clearly the future of the position but has yet to take a collegiate snap. Although Eason boasts the purest talent of the trio, the Bulldogs staff has said it wants to bring him along carefully. So many options ... so little clarity.Florida Gators: Quarterback?There will be pressure until a Gators QB finally proves he can consistently throw against SEC opponents. Former starter Treon Harris moved to receiver, then was suspended in the spring, so Luke Del Rio, who walked on last year, is the favorite. Still, Del Rio failed to establish himself in stints at Alabama and Oregon State, which leaves room for Purdue graduate transfer Austin Appleby and true freshmen Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask to enter the race.South Carolina Gamecocks: Quarterback?New OC Kurt Roper wants to run an up-tempo spread, so mobility under center will be critical. While a trio of QBs who logged starts in 2015 return (Perry Orth, Lorenzo Nunez, Connor Mitch), true freshman and 2016 ESPN 300 dual-threat Brandon McIlwain may be best suited to run Ropers O in the long run.Missouri Tigers: Offensive line?New faces, redshirts and backups abound. Down four starters with nearly 130 career starts, the O-line returns only a couple of semi-familiar names in Nate Crawford and Alec Abeln, who combined for 11 starts last season. Both tackles will start from scratch, while a couple of sophomores, OT Paul Adams and G Kevin Pendleton, got some work toward the end of the season and could man the right side.Kentucky Wildcats: Linebacker?The Wildcats lose six of their top seven tacklers from 2015, including, most critically, LB Josh Forrest. The unit was dealt an additional blow with the offseason dismissal of Jason Hatcher (marijuana trafficking), so Kentucky will depend on a pair of Big Ten transfers -- Courtney Love from Nebraska and DeNiro Laster from Minnesota -- to fill the hole in the defenses depleted middle.Vanderbilt Commodores: Safety?Derek Masons D relies heavily on its safeties ability to play both in the back end and in the box. With Andrew Williamson gone, junior Oren Burks needs help at the other spot. Theres depth (Ryan White, Emmanuel Smith and Arnold Tarpley return), and frosh Joejuaan Williams, Vandys lone 2016 ESPN 300 prep, enrolled early and will vie for playing time from Day 1. Danny DeKeyser Red Wings Jersey. West DivisionLSU Tigers: Quarterback?For the third time in as many years, Brandon Harris will compete for QB1. (He served as backup in 2014 before being named starter last season.) Harris, a junior, had a solid first half in 2015, playing to a 78.2 QBR through Week 7, only to throw three TDs and five picks in November. The dual-threat QB will face off against a dropback passer, Purdue transfer Danny Etling, to try to kick-start an aerial attack that ranked No. 105 in the FBS (180.4 yards per game).Alabama Crimson Tide: Quarterback?Count the Tide as yet another SEC team with a question mark at QB. Junior Cooper Bateman lost the starting job to Jake Coker last season, and this year, Bateman must fend off redshirt freshman Blake Barnett and sophomore David Cornwell for the gig. No matter which pro-style passer gets tabbed, hell be Lane Kiffins third straight first-time starter in Tuscaloosa.Ole Miss Rebels: Offensive line?All five starters who lined up in the trenches for the Rebels Sugar Bowl victory in January are gone. The arrival of five-star signee OT Gregory Little, the second-ranked prep in the 2016 ESPN 300, certainly helps, but potential starters Rod Taylor and Robert Conyers are the only Ole Miss veterans along the O-line (12 combined career starts). A handful of other linemen (Javon Patterson, Jordan Sims, Sean Rawlings) have some starting reps, but the front line is in major rebuilding mode.Texas A&M Aggies: Running back?The quarterback saga in College Station is compelling, and certainly critical, but finding Tra Carsons heir apparent at running back will also be vital this fall. Carson was the first 1,000-yard rusher in the Sumlin era, and though the Aggies have a host of backfield options, the units leading veteran is now junior James White, who ran for just 196 yards last season. Look for Oklahoma transfer Keith Ford and three other backs to push for touches.Mississippi State Bulldogs: Quarterback?Dak Prescott owns every Mississippi State career passing record, so good luck to his successor. In the spring, Mullen rotated four QBs with the first team, all of whom are promising, if inexperienced. Sophomore Nick Fitzgerald went 11-of-14 for 235 yards and three TDs in eight games last season. Damian Williams and Elijah Staley: 75 career attempts combined. Nick Tiano? Freshman. As Mullen said, this ones wide open.Auburn Tigers: Quarterback?Jeremy Johnson earned preseason Heisman chatter in 2015 -- then tossed six INTs in the Tigers first three games. Sean White took over and wasnt much better, throwing for one TD in seven outings. The two are in the mix for starter again, with juco transfer John Franklin III as a dual-threat option.Arkansas Razorbacks: Offensive line?Former starting quarterback Brandon Allens younger brother, Austin, will inherit the QB reins, but the question now is who will protect him. RT Dan Skipper and C Frank Ragnow return, but the Hogs are otherwise inexperienced. Among potential starters: redshirt freshman Colton Jackson and converted defensive lineman Hjalte Froholdt. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Simmons served a strong free kick into the box, which was batted down the MSU keeper. Second later, the Dores were back at it again offensively as OHalloran served an identical ball with the same result.The Commodores had an additional chance to take the lead as Simmons crossed the ball, to Grace Jackson. The freshman from Atlanta was unable to finish, as her diving header was saved by MSU keeper, Tanya de Souza.As the clock expired, the Bulldogs had two close opportunities to take the lead and the game, but were unable to finish in front of goal.Heading into sudden death overtime both squads were evenly matched on paper, tied with 14 shots, seven saves and three corners. Like the two halves prior, both the Commodores and Bulldogs had a slew of offensive opportunities, but were unable to finish throughout the first overtime periodLike MSU in the first period, Vanderbilt was on the offensive attack to begin the final ten minutes of OT right out of the gate. In the 100th minute, Eberts sent a shot wide, with Scarpa generating a shot on goal minutes later.After sprinting into the box, Eberts was ready and positioned in front of the Bulldog goal as OHalloran served the ball into the box to seal the victory.Vanderbilt returns home next week, hosting the Texas A&M Aggies Thursday at 7:00 pm for social media night. LSU heads to town for a 1:00 pm Sunday matinee. The Commodores will be celebrating International Day, and were bringing back Vanderbrunch! Jimmy Howard USA Jersey .

ST. Max Jones Ducks Jersey Authentic . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The latest memorable night for David Ortiz ended badly for the Boston Red Sox.Ortiz became the oldest player ever to hit 30 homers in a season, but the Tampa Bay Rays came back from a three-run deficit to beat Boston 4-3 in 11 innings on Wednesday night and prevent the Red Sox from taking sole possession of first place in the American League East.Its hard to lose a game like that at this time, Ortiz said. You expect to win that kind of game, especially the stage that we are in now. Luke Maile doubled with two out in the 11th and scored from second base after Red Sox pitcher Heath Hembree (4-1) dropped a throw to first on Kevin Kiermaiers grounder. Hembrees throw to the plate beat Maile, but catcher Sandy Leon dropped the ball as Maile slid across with the winning run.Thats kind of a routine 3-to-1 play, Boston manager John Farrell said. Unfortunately, it comes at a time where youve got two outs and the guy is on the move, and it ends up being the difference in this one.Brad Boxberger (2-0) got the win after one inning of relief.Its fun anytime you can walk off in front of your fans and have a celebration out there on the field. We dont get to do that very much, Kiermaier said. Its a win. Well take it.Boston has won 10 of its past 13 games and remains tied in first with Toronto after the?Blue Jays lost 8-2 to the Los Angeles Angels.Bidding to become the majors first 18-game winner, Bostons?Rick Porcello allowed Evan Longorias tying homer in the eighth before leaving with 7? innings pitched. It was Longorias 30th homer.Red Sox rookie Andrew Benintendi left the game in the seventh with a left knee sprain after being tagged out by shortstop Matt Duffy on a double play.Its stiff. I can put a little bit of weight [on it], not trying to push it or overdo it, Benintendi said. Come back tomorrow and see how it feels. It was bad baserunning. It shouldnt happen.The 40-year-old Ortiz hit the first pitch he saw from starter Matt Andriese in the first inning for a two-run homer. Ortiz is the only player with 30 homers and 100 RBIs in each of the past four seasons, and he is the first Red Sox player to drive in 100 runs 10 times.We need that, we need offense, Ortiz said. Weve had a good offense this year, and thats whats keeping us alive, so hopefully it continues.Ortiz has 533 home runs, one shy of Jimmie Foxx for 18th on the career list. Ortiz plans to retire at the end of the season.Porcello pitched seven or more innings for a career-high sixth straight start. His 123 pitches were a career high. The right-hander gave up three runs and nine hits while striking out eight, failing to win for only the second time in 11 starts since June 23.Mookie Betts drove in Bostons third run with a third-inning single, one of two hits in his 54th multihit game of the season.RED SOXS ROTATING ROTATIONFarrell said knuckleballer Steven Wright (strained right shoulder) will be reinstated from the 15-day disabled list to start on Friday night against Kansas City. LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (left hamstring) will have a bullpen session on Thursday, which will help determine where he will be inserted into the rotation. Also to be determined is the role of RHP Clay Buchholz, who was moved out of the bullpen on Aug. 13 and made three solid starts. Once we get through [Thursday], well have more clarity, Farrell said.SIX-MAN ROTATION LIKELY FOR RAYSWith Alex Cobb and/or Chase Whitley coming back from injuries and rookie Blake Snell facing limits on his innings, the Rays are considering a six-man rotation down the stretch, and even that would mean removing a current starter from the mix.I think thats probably a good option, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. Were not going to draw straws and say one guys out of the rotation, but were going to have to find a way to get everybody their innings.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: 3B Pablo Sandoval, expected to be ready for spring training next year after having left shoulder surgery in May, has resumed working out at third base. ... RHP Carson Smith (Tommy John surgery) will start throwing in 3? weeks.Rays: RHP Cobb (Tommy John surgery) will make his final rehab start on Saturday for Triple-A Durham and hopes to have his first major league appearance in almost two years during a Sept. 2-4 series against Toronto.UP NEXTLHP Drew Pomeranz will make his eighth start for the Red Sox on Thursday against Rays RHP Jake Odorizzi, who is 5-0 with a 1.64 ERA in six starts since the All-Star break. Kevin Bieksa Ducks Jersey Authentic . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. Simon Despres Ducks Jersey . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Get used to seeing wide receivers in the backfield for the Green Bay Packers, at least while they wait for their injured running backs to return.The Packers already used the look at times as a wrinkle with Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery. They leaned on the scheme heavily in the 26-10 win on Thursday night over the Chicago Bears.It could be an offensive staple when the Packers next play on Oct. 30 against Atlanta.You try to create opportunities and have a vision and build a plan based off of your availability of your players week in and week out, coach Mike McCarthy said Friday.Montgomery and Cobb are versatile pass catchers. They were willing to take on extra responsibilities, with Green Bays offense having a productive night in its first game without injured running back Eddie Lacy. Montgomery took most of the Packers 81 snaps, a season high, at running back.I didnt have that many plays in the backfield since, like, eighth grade, I think, Montgomery said with a laugh after the game. But it was a lot of fun, though.Montgomery had nine carries for a team-high 60 yards, highlighted by a 30-yard run early in the third quarter that started a 13-play, 85-yard touchdown drive to regain the lead at 13-10.Montgomery also tied a career-high with 10 catches for 66 yards, joining Davante Adams and Cobb in double figures for receptions as Aaron Rodgers set a single-game franchise record with 39 completions.As the play-caller, McCarthy took responsibility for nott giving Cobb a carry out of the backfield in the loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Rickard Rakell Ducks Jersey. McCarthy said the plan was to have Cobb get four or five carries in that game.On Thursday, Cobb ranked second on the team with five carries for 21 yards. He also tied a career high with 11 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown as Rodgers relied on quick, short passing.Guys were really stepping up and filling positions where we just didnt have anybody left, offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga said. They were making big plays.Lacy is on injured reserve and must sit out at least eight weeks because of an ankle injury. James Starks is sidelined indefinitely after knee surgery last weekend.That left the Packers with two newcomers at running back Thursday: undrafted rookie Don Jackson and fourth-year pro Knile Davis, who was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs this week.Jackson had only two carries for 6 yards before leaving with a hand injury in the second quarter. His status for the Falcons game is uncertain. Davis, who had a kickoff return, didnt enter the game on offense until the second half and had only two carries for a yard.If hes needed as a running back again, Montgomery will be ready.Im a football player, and as a football player, I can do anything thats asked of me, he said.---AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
Ray Allen announced his retirement from the NBA on Tuesday, writing that he is completely at peace with himself after a record-setting 18-year career during which he established himself as one of the best shooters in basketball history. Donnel Pumphrey Womens Jersey .Allen, 41, has not played in the NBA since the 2013-14 season, when he was with the Heat. He had been linked with multiple teams over the last two years and recently considered making a comeback with the Warriors and Cavaliers, league sources told ESPN.As part of a letter to my younger self posted Tuesday on The Players Tribune, Allen wrote, I write this to you today as a 41-year-old man who is retiring from the game.Allen was a 10-time All-Star over a career spent with four teams -- the Heat, Celtics, SuperSonics and Bucks. He won two NBA championships -- one with Boston in 2008, the other with Miami in 2013 -- and is the leagues all-time leader with 2,973 career 3-pointers made, 413 more than anyone else to date.In his post, Allen praised former teammates LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.The men who you are going to win championships with are all going to be very different people, he wrote. What makes them champions is the boring old habits that nobody sees. They compete to see who can be the first to get to the gym and the last to leave.Allen averaged 18.9 points per game in 1,300 regular-season contests and shot 89.4 percent from the free-throw line, the seventh-best percentage in league history.When you start getting some national attention in high school, youll hear things like, Rays jump shot is God-given, Allen wrote. Listen: God doesnt care whether you make your next jump shot.God will give you a lot of things in life, but hes not going to give you your jump shot. Only hard work will do that.Allen is the last member of the Celtics famed Big Three to announce retirement plans this year.Garnett, 40, retired on Sept. 23 after a 21-year NBA career. Pierce, 39, announced three days later that he would retire after playing this season with the L.A. Clippers.Celtics general manager Danny Ainge issued a statement, saying: As one of the greatest shooting guards in the history of basketball, Ray Allen defined the word professionalism. Ray was born with special talent, but it was his leadership, tireless preparation, and infectious work ethic that made him a great teammate and champion. We would not have won the 2008 title without him.Teammates and coaches raved about Allens famed work ethic and commitment to fitness -- which now takes a different form, after he and his wife, Shannon, recently opened an organic fast-casual restaurant in Miami. Allen was almost always on the floor for a workout three hours before games, shooting on some occasions before the arena lights were even turned on.Wade said Tuesday that Allen inspired him.I learned so much from Ray towards the end of his career, how he took care of his body, longevity and what it takes mentally and physically, he said. [He had] a Hall of Fame career, man.He added: He pushed us to do things differently. He pushed us to take our bodies a different way. He talked to us about eating a different way and all kinds of stuff, man. So Ray was obviously an unbelievable basketball player but I think a lot of us are going to remember the person and what he meant to our team.Allen had the record for 3-pointers in a season for seven years, his mark of 269 standing until Stephen Curry made 272 in 2012-13 -- a record Curry has topped twice.Allens record of 2,973 3-pointers made in regular-season games doesnt even count the one that was his most unforgettable.His 3-pointer from the right corner with 5.2 seconds left in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals for Miami sent the Heat to overtime against the Spurs in a win-or-else game, and helped them go on to win the title in seven games. Chris Bosh got an offensive rebound and passed to Allen, who was backtracking toward the corner.Allen, without even needing to look down to ensure that he was behind the line, elevated over Tony Parker and connected to tie the game -- even as arena workers kneeled around the court, holding the rope that they presumed they would soon be called upon to cordon things off for the Spurs championship celebration.On his way back to the bench to prepare for overtime, Allen gestured to those workers, shouting to put the rope away.It was just perfect, Wade said. No one else could hit that shot on our team but Ray, the way that it happened. Its crazy because he practiced it all the time. Ray has a drill where he sits on his butt, and he gets up and he backpedals back to the the 3-[point line] and he makes it. Thats one of the drills he does in the morning. So you look at that, you look at how he had to backpedal back to the 3-point line and get it off with defenders all on him. He practiced that over and over. I know coaches say all the time but remember that whole practice makes perfect [motto]? That was a moment where practice really makes perfect and we got a championship because of it.Allen, who played for UConn from 1993 to 1996, also starred in the 1998 Spike Lee film He Got Game, portraying Jesus Shuttlesworth, a top-ranked basketball prospect whose father (played by Denzel Washington) is in prison for killing his wife.Basketball will take you far away from that school yard, Allen wrote. You will become far more than just a basketball player. Youll get to act in movies. Youll travel the world. You will become a husband, and the father of five amazing children.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Donnel Pumphrey Eagles Jersey .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Mack Hollins Jersey .

A fist-fight ensued as they exchanged multiple punches - Lopez with his boxing gloves still on and Rivera bare-fisted -- and created a near-riot in the ring and at ringside as fans began throwing things into the ring as they fought.Order was eventually restored and Lopez (35-5, 32 KOs), who had come out of a 25-month retirement for the fight, and Vazquez (24-7-1, 19 KOs), who announced his retirement following the fight, put their long-simmering differences aside as they hugged in the ring and showed respect to each other in the post-fight interview.But the commission, which went to the television production truck immediately after the fight to secure a video of the incident, was not about to overlook the ugly post-fight fight. They were given nominal fines -- $1,000 for Lopez and $500 for Rivera -- but they face suspensions at a later date following a commission hearing. Derek Barnett Jersey. Rivera has yet to talk publicly about the incident but Lopez offered his apologies.The commission knows me very well, Lopez said in a statement given to ESPN. I have made mistakes in the past but I would not characterize me as a person of unsportsmanlike conduct. On the contrary, I have always defended the values that boxing represents, and I am very active in the community teaching and motivating children with those same principles. Having said that, I sincerely apologize to the commission, to Vazquezs trainer and to all the fans for my conduct.According to a Lopez representative, Lopez also sent the commission and Rivera a letter of apology.Lopez has been in trouble with the Puerto Rican commission before. After he lost his featherweight world title by upset eighth-round knockout to Orlando Salido in April 2011, they met in a rematch in March 2012. Once again, Lopez got knocked out, this time in the 10th round. During his post-fight interview on Showtime, Lopez claimed that referee Roberto Ramirez Sr., a very experienced championship official, had a gambling problem, clearly suggesting that the reason Ramirez stopped the fight was because he had action on the bout, which Ramirez vehemently denied.Lopez later apologized for his comments, but the Puerto Rican commission meted out a harsh one-year suspension, fined him $10,000 and ordered him to perform 100 hours of community service. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Can an old dog learn new tricks? Sure. Can an old dog continue to refine his game and hone his skills? Sure, and Austin and all the Tiger-Cats fans are counting on that. Burris turned back the clock last season, playing with a serious chip on his shoulder trying to prove to the entire country that he still had what it took to be an elite QB in CFL. All he did was complete 65% of his passes, throwing for 5,367 yards and 43 touchdowns to only 18 interceptions. Oh yeah, he churned out his best ever QB efficiency rating of his career at 104.4 too. Austin, a stickler for mechanics, should be a great fit with the talented Burris. Austin will look to improve on Hanks career numbers, harping on fundamentals and ball security. Top priority is most likely trying to trim back on the 18 interceptions and the 11 fumbles Hank put on the ground. This should be an incredible pairing to watch all season and I for one hope Henry can stay healthy because the entire roster of QBs behind him have never thrown a pass in a CFL regular season game. The only two guys to have any idea of what this game is all about are Dan LeFevour, who was the third man last season, and Jeremiah Masoli, who was on Edmontonss practice squad last season. I can guarantee Brian Bhohm and Chris Amrhein are working overtime trying to grasp the nuances of this game and fight for quality reps, which are tough to come by in such a short training camp. Nike Air Max 2017 Herre . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Nike Air Max Thea Udsalg .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- On the eve of his last game in charge of the national team, U.S. mens basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski praised local organizers for the conditions provided to his players at the Rio Olympics.We have loved being in Rio, Krzyzewski said Saturday. We knew it was going to be good. First of all, youre in the Olympics. There was such negative publicity about Rio before the Olympics started, but its been just the opposite. The people of Rio could not have been better.Weve been treated in just amazing fashion, and the care, the security, the friendliness, just the hospitality of the Brazilian people, have been spectacular. I hope we win, but Ill tell you what, well go away with a great feeling about Rio. Weve loved being here, we could not have been treated better.The Americans face Serbia on Sunday afternoon at Carioca Arena 1 in a rematch of the 2014 FIBA World Cup final in Spain that Team USA won in a 129-92 runaway.Yet its also a rematch of the Group A game these teams staged Aug. 12, when the Serbs came within a Bogdan Bogdanovic 3-pointer from the wing away from forcing overtime in a 94-91 thriller.Krzyzewski has won 75 games in a row as Team USA coach, including exhibitions, since a defeat to Greece in the semifinals of the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Japan in his first major tournament in the post. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is succeeding Krzyzewski after the Olympics.Serbia came within a whisker of beating us in our pool play, so we absolutely respect them, Krzyzewski said. We know how good they are.Serbia is led by crafty guarrd Milos Teodosic -- one of Krzyzewskis favorite players -- and its lone current NBA player in?Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic. Nike Air Max Thea Grå. . The Serbs finished fourth in Group A, losing to France and Australia as well as Team USA, but they avenged the Australia defeat at the perfect time, routing the Aussies in Fridays semifinals.Team USA elected not to practice Saturday, opting instead to focus on film work and a walkthrough on the docked cruise ship USA Basketball has used as a home base during these Olympics. The Americans moved to 7-0 with a six-point win over Spain in the semis.Youre familiar at least a little bit with them, Krzyzewski said of having faced Serbia previously. [But] I think its an advantage for both teams.I think in a limited amount of preparation time the fact that we have faced one another helps both teams. And then what adjustments you make from that [first] game. We need to make a few adjustments because they almost beat us.Asked specifically about adjustments, Krzyzewski said: Just maintaining our poise. Weve had at times a problem with how the game is administered, and so we need to keep our focus on the play and not anything else.And how we defend them. [Serbia] scored 91 points against us. So I think it starts with that. Hopefully we can play our best game. Were looking for a gold-medal performance. Weve had effort and weve had really good performances, but we would hope this one will be our best game. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
Israel Idonije has Sept. Mack Hollins Youth Jersey . 29 and Nov. 10 circled on his calendar. Those are the days the Detroit Lions will face their arch rivals, the Chicago Bears, this season. After spending nine years in the Windy City, the Canadian defensive lineman will don the Lions colours this season after signing a one-year deal in Motown as a free agent. The six-foot-six, 271-pound Idonije, a native of Nigeria who grew up in Brandon, Man., has no axe to grind against his former team. "Every week you prepare to play a different team, thats football," Idonije said during a telephone interview this week. "I know its a business and its all part of it. "Chicago has a new regime there and wanted its own people and I understand that. Now, Im just looking forward to suiting up and getting after it on the field twice a year when we play the Bears. I feel the same way when I play the Cleveland Browns because I was with them my first year and I always make sure they remember I was once a Brown." The articulate Idonije originally signed with Cleveland in 2003 as an undrafted free agent following his college career at Brandon. He began the season on the Browns practice roster but was waived before joining Chicagos practice roster later that year. Idonije spent nine seasons with the Bears, registering 28.5 career sacks and 272 tackles over 134 career games. He had a career-best 7.5 sacks last year and new GM Phil Emery -- who hired former CFL head coach Marc Trestman this off-season -- wanted Idonije back but at substantially less than the US$2.5 million the 32-year-old defensive lineman earned in 2012. Idonije had met with both Tennessee and San Francisco this off-season before reaching an agreement with Detroit. Contract details werent divulged but Idonije will reportedly receive $1.005 million with the Lions -- the $940,000 veteran minimum along with a $65,000 signing bonus. Idonije gives the Lions plenty of flexibility on its defensive line as he played both tackle and end effectively in Chicago. The expectation is Idonije will see more time on the outside with Detroit given that Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley have established themselves as starters at tackle. The addition of Idonije would also give the Lions the luxury of bringing defensive lineman Ziggy Ansah, the fifth overall selection in this years NFL draft, along slowly. Although he signed a one-year contract, Idonije says he has plenty of good football left. "I think I have two, three great years still in me," he said. "My first six years I didnt really play a lot and I think that helped save my body. "The last three years Ive been able to play at a high level and Im looking forward to doing what I can to help the Detroit Lions win a championship." Idonije played in Super bowl XLI when Chicago squared off against Indianapolis in the rain at Miami but it was the Colts who hoisted the Lombardi Trophy afterwards following a 29-17 victory. While Idonije will have to adjust to a new team and city, there will be a sense of familiarity for him in Detroit. The Lions, like the Bears, are part of the NFC North (Green Bay and Minnesota are the other division rivals) which means theyll play six games against teams Idonije has faced often over his NFL career. "Detroit just seemed like the best fit for me," he said. "When you look at the guys Ill be lining up with (on the defensive line) and all the weapons they have on offence, it was a great opportunity. "Its tough leaving Chicago after being there so long . . . but again you have to look at this as a business. When you do, it becomes easier to make that adjustment and focus on the next step." Idonije certainly stayed busy while his football future sorted itself out this off-season. He operates Blessed Communion -- a company that manufactures communion products -- as well as his charity, the Israel Idonije Foundation, both in Chicago. And earlier this year Idonije unveiled "The Protectors," his debut comic book series roughly three years after he created Altheta Comics, a publishing company. "Its something I started working on in 2007 at training camp," Idonije said. "Its a story about athletes who must save the world from an evil force looking to enslave all of humanity." Idonije comes by his love of comics honestly, saying he became a big fan of them as a youth. His first exposure was with a Green Lantern series and he became hooked immediately. But dont expect Idonije to feature himself in The Protectors. "No, not at all," he said. "I just think were telling a great story and Ive got a few more Id like to see unfold in the future." Donnel Pumphrey Eagles Jersey .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. Donnel Pumphrey - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. ANGERS, France -- A gastronomical, sporting and cultural glance at Stage 3 of the Tour de France on Monday:Region: Anjou. After two days in Normandy, the peloton left Granville and headed south toward the Anjou region in the Loire valley. Angers was the capital of Anjou province and the seat of the Plantagenets, who provided some famous monarchs like Richard the Lionheart and Henry V.Baguette and butter: Mark Cavendish showed off his sprinting experience by edging German rival Andre Greipel in a photo finish to win Stage 3. World champion Peter Sagan held on to the race leaders yellow jersey he claimed a day earlier. Having also won Saturdays opening stage at Utah Beach, it was Cavendishs second victory in this Tour.Plat du jour: A plate of galipettes, the large local mushrooms that can be eaten in a very simple way stirred in garlic. Top them with foie gras for an even better culinary experience.Culture: Granvilles most famous son was French designer Christian Dior, the founder of the world-famous fashion house. The Christian Dior Museum in Granville honors his memory with permanent collections and temporary exhibits throughout the year.Vin du jour: Anjou wines have become more and more popular over the past ten years. They come in every color: white, red and rose. If you have to pick just one, go for the Savennieres. Made of Chenin Blanc grapes grown on schist soil, this white wine has gold reflections, complex aromas with scents of pear and offers mineral qualities once in the mouth. Derek Barnett Womens Jersey. History: Some bad memories might have crossed the mind of three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond when the peloton went past the little town of Les Loges-Marchis. The American rider ended his Tour career there during the sixth stage of the 1994 Tour, dropping out of the race due to exhaustion.Stat of the Day: 28. The numbers of stage wins by Mark Cavendish, who matched five-time Tour champion Bernard Hinault for second on the all-time list. Eddy Merckx has a record 34 stage wins at the Tour.Quote of the Day: I was thinking one moment we were going to take the coffee like old time. Peter Sagan, reflecting on the slow pace of the peloton.Dessert: The Angers plum pate is a local pie made with small, green plums called Reines-Claudes, with pastry on top.

Its only available from mid-July until mid-September.Next order: At 237.5 kilometers (148 miles), Tuesdays fourth stage is the longest of this years Tour.

te him but he is doing much, FCS Playoffs First RoundThe Matchup -- Charleston Southern (7-3) at Wofford (8-3)Kickoff -2 p. Demarcus Walker Broncos Jersey .m. ET Saturday at Gibbs Stadium (13,000) in Spartanburg, South CarolinaCoverage -- ESPN3Series -- Wofford leads 13-0Players to Watch -- Charleston Southern: RB Mike Holloway (860 yards, 9 TDs, 8.8 ypc), RB/RS Darius Hammond (1,200 all-purpose yards), DE Anthony Ellis (13.5 TFL, 7 sacks); Wofford: FB Lorenzo Long (1,194 yards, 14 TDs), ILB Datavious Wilson (74 tackles, 2 sacks), SS Jaleel Green (49 tackles, 5 INTs)The Skinny -- These two South Carolina schools havent met since 2010, when Wofford improved to 13-0 in the series. Both offenses are predicated on the option run game and both defenses are strong against the run. Charleston Southern has overcome a season of quarterback injuries and the distraction of player and coach suspensions to win the Big South Conferences automatic playoff bid. QB Shane Bucenell, originally fourth on the depth chart, has played with more poise in recent games. Holloway is the breakaway threat, but Hammond regained his running form against Kennesaw State (153 yards, two TDs) last Saturday. Leading tackler Solomon Brown, a linebacker, surely will get a lot of action in the middle of the defense. Woffords offense averages 295.8 rushing yards per game and features Long, who has rushed for at least 100 yards eight times this season. Quarterback Brandon Goodson doesnt pose much of a passing threat as the Terriers have completed only 58 passes. Despite playing in a run-oriented Southern Conference, the Terriers have surrendered only 68.6 rushing yards per game -- ranking No. 2 in the FCS. Coach Mike Ayers, in his 29th season guiding Wofford, has an impressive 28 seniors on his roster.Up Next -- The winner plays at No. 6 seed The Citadel (10-1) in the second round Dec. 3.Prediction -- Charleston Southern has played at North Dakota State, Florida State, Coastal Carolina and Liberty this season, so the Buccaneers arent fazed by another tough road assignment. Charleston Southern 24-21. Demarcus Walker Youth Jersey . - Chris Tierney snapped a tie with a power-play goal late in the third period as the London Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Erie Otters 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday.Demarcus Walker Womens Jersey .

Meanwhile, there were huge victories for Sunderland and West Ham over fellow relegation rivals, leaving the battle to avoid the drop up for grabs with the bottom 11 teams separated by just six points. Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres scored second-half goals to seal a fourth straight victory for Chelsea, which climbed above Arsenal and Manchester City in the standings ahead of their games on Monday and Sunday respectively. FRANKFURT, Germany -- Robert Lewandowski began the season with a hat trick, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a brace. From round one, the two most prolific Bundesliga strikers have been seeking to outdo each other.They picked up right where they left off -- Lewandowski topped the Bundesliga last season with 30 goals and helped Bayern win an unprecedented fourth consecutive title. Aubameyang finished with 25 goals for Borussia Dortmund.They will square off again on Saturday, when Dortmund hosts Bayern in one of the highlight matches of the season that some are calling the Bundesliga classico, borrowing its name from the Real Madrid-Barcelona showdowns in Spain.Playing in Dortmund is the best game in the Bundesliga, Bayern forward Thomas Mueller said. Its the toughest match to win.Lewandowski and Aubameyang appear friendly, although they could not be more different, at least in looks. The clean-cut Lewandowski is all about understatement, while the flamboyant Aubameyang is clearly enjoying money and fame, with his clothes attracting as many headlines as his goals. They swap friendly messages on Twitter and embrace warmly before matches. On the pitch, they share the same hunger for goals.The two played together on the 2013-14 Dortmund squad and combined for 31 goals, before Lewandowski moved to Bayern. Since then, Lewandowski has scored four goals against his old team and is unbeaten in the league. In 204 Bundesliga matches, he has 128 goals.Aubameyang, one of the speediest forwards in the Bundesliga, has 65 goals in 105 matches.Before the international break, Aubameyang trumped Lewandowski by scoring four goals against Hamburg for a share of the league lead with 11 goals. Garett Bolles Broncos Jersey. . Lewandowski has seven.The huge performance came after Aubameyang had been suspended by his club for an unauthorized private trip to Milan before a Champions League match against Sporting. Aubameyang sat out that match and then returned in a big way, embracing with coach Thomas Tuchel after scoring.The match provides many story lines: the return of defender Mats Hummels to Dortmund for the first time since his move to Bayern; the first match of Mario Goetze against Bayern since his return to Dortmund after three unremarkable seasons in Munich; Bayerns Renato Sanches possibly playing against Raphael Guerreiro, his teammate from Portugals squad that won the European Championship in France this summer.Bayern drew its last match, against Hoffenheim, and has been caught on points by newcomer Leipzig.Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti is hoping to have winger Franck Ribery back from injury, while Tuchel can count again on forward Marco Reuss, who has been out since May with a groin injury.After signing eight new players and releasing five, Dortmund was always going to be in a transition season with a young squad. It can rely on Aubameyangs goals and has scored a league-high 25 but the defense has been inconsistent. Dortmund, however, is unbeaten in 26 home matches.A Bayern defeat would not only be a loss of prestige, but could also mean falling behind surging Leipzig, which has won five straight. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' 'much better, Francona said
CHICAGO -- A little rest and refocusing was just the remedy Josh Tomlin needed. Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys .Tomlin pitched five effective innings in his return to the Indians rotation, Coco Crisp hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning to break the game open and Cleveland defeated the Chicago White Sox 6-1 on Wednesday night to remain six games ahead of Detroit in the AL Central.Tomlin (12-8) allowed one run on four hits and walked none as he ended a personal five-game losing streak that led to the right-hander being demoted to the bullpen after his last start on Aug. 30.Since that last start, when Tomlin lasted just 1 2/3 innings against Minnesota, he pitched only one inning in relief. He came back recharged in this one, even if he was limited to 72 pitches by manager Terry Francona.He pitched really well, Francona said. When you have the rest like that theres a reason, but you also hope theres no rust.He threw so many strikes (50), was aggressive with his fastball in, threw his cutter off of it.Tomlin won for the first time since July 30, when he was 11-3 with a 3.43 ERA. In six starts in August, the righty had a 11.48 ERA.In this one though, Francona said Tomlin was back to being crisp.It never hurts to get the rest this time of year, Tomlin said. But youve still got to go out there and you have to execute pitches and still got to figure out what you were doing wrong.Hopefully I can build off that outing and just keep going.Jose Ramirez had two hits, including a triple that drove in two runs in a three-run third inning, and scored two runs. Brandon Guyer and Rajai Davis had two hits each.Crisp, who also doubled, went deep to left with none out in the sixth to chase Carlos Rodon (7-9) who allowed six runs to match his season high and lost for the first time since July 31. The lefty was 5-0 with a 1.85 ERA in his previous seven starts.It just didnt work out today, Rodon said. It wasnt my best, although I felt real good. Thats just a good ballclub.Crisps homer was his first with the Indians since rejoining them in a trade from Oakland on Aug. 31.Adam Eaton drove in the lone White Sox run with a triple in the third.NO WORRIESThe Indians had lost three of four as they entered Wednesdays game with a six game lead over Detroit in the AL Central. But Francona said neither he nor his team are feeling pressure as they try to wrap up the division.Once my stuff (pregame preparation) is in a bundle and Im ready to go, I have fun the rest of the day, Francona said. When you lose, it kind of hurts more, but thats because (the games) are so important. But Id rather have that than be 20 out and say we lost the game.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: Guyer (sore knee) started in right field after being struck by a pitch in the fourth inning of Tuesdays 8-1 loss, then leaving in the seventh. ... C Yan Gomes (shoulder) was the DH at Double-A Akron on Wednesday and is expected to come off the disabled list Friday, possibly in time to catch ace Corey Kluber when the Indians open a pivotal series against Detroit.White Sox: DH Justin Morneau (stiff neck) was out of the lineup for the second straight game. Jose Abreu was at DH with Todd Frazier switching from third to first base. . RHP Zach Putnam visited the teams clubhouse and said hes recovering really nicely from surgery on Aug. 5 to remove bone fragments from his right elbow. Following physical therapy, Putnam expects to resume throwing in December.UP NEXTRHP Mike Clevinger (2-2, 5.01) faces struggling RHP James Shields (3-10, 7.30) in the finale of the four-game series on Thursday afternoon. Shields is 0-5 with a 10.75 ERA in his last eight starts. Clevinger has reached the fifth inning only once in four starts since his recall on Aug. 4 from Triple-A Columbus, but Francona said Clevinger has been stretched out and expects the righty can go deeper in games. Kris Letang Penguins Jersey . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. Daniel Sprong Penguins Jersey . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. . Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March 16, 2013. TORONTO -- Trevor Bauer and his injured finger couldnt make it through the first inning Monday night. That means Corey Kluber is expected back on the mound for Cleveland a day earlier than planned.Bauer was removed from Game 3 of the AL Championship Series on Monday night after blood began dripping from his right pinkie. The right-hander had been pushed back two days to Game 3 because he cut the finger on a drone last week. He received stitches, but with two on and two out in the first inning against Toronto, there was already blood on his hand and coming out of his finger.Bauer shook his head in disappointment while being tended to on the mound, and he was replaced by Dan Otero after 21 pitches.Bauers early exit meant Kluber is expected to pitch Game 4 on short rest for Cleveland. Manager Terry Francona had said that was his plan if Bauers finger acted up.Francona said before Mondays game that rookie left-hander Ryan Merritt would start Game 4 if everything went OK with Bauer. Then the Indians would keep the rest of their pitchers on normal rest, with Bauer in line for a potential Game 7.But Francona also left open the possibility that Bauers finger wouldnt hold up.If something happens with Bauer and we have a little bit of a malfunction in his finger ... then we would bring Kluber baack (Tuesday), and then Merritt would pitch the next day, Francona said. Carl Hagelin Penguins Jersey. Then that would allow Kluber to pitch a Game 7 if need be.Kluber pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in Game 1 on Friday.Cleveland entered with a 2-0 series lead, but the Indians have been battling rotation injuries. Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar arent on the ALCS roster, and Bauers problem left Francona in another tough spot.Merritts major league resume consists of 11 innings in the regular season this year. He made one start, holding Kansas City to a run and three hits in five innings Sept. 30.Its awesome that they trust me, the 24-year-old Merritt said. Im just going to go out there and have fun, enjoy it, and try to give my team the best chance to win.Salazar, who is not on the ALCS roster because of forearm issues, threw to hitters on the field at the end of Clevelands workout Sunday.Were not ready to activate him but he is doing much, much better, Francona said. Like we said before, the first goal was to get him completely healthy, and then when that happens well see where and if it leads to him helping us in a game.---Follow Noah Trister at Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
Zach Terrell is enjoying the perks of being the quarterback of an undefeated college football team. Felix Potvin Maple Leafs Jersey .Terrell walked into a graduate-level class at Western Michigan and was greeted by a throng of supporters.Grown men and women gave me a standing ovation, he said. Not that Im deserving, but that was just like, Wow! Weve got vice presidents and people in major organizations clapping for a 22-year-old kid that has never worked a day in his life. That was pretty special.The 14th-ranked Broncos (10-0 overall, 6-0 Mid-American Conference), one of two remaining unbeaten FBS teams, will try to keep their fans happy when they host Buffalo (2-8, 1-5) on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, ESPNU). As an added treat, ESPNs College Gameday show will hold its broadcast at the Kalamazoo, Mich., campus, a rarity for a Mid-American Conference program.We dont take that lightly, Terrell said. Were proud to have them here. For us football players, its a dream come true. I know it was on my bucket list to go to a College Gameday. Well, College Gameday came to me.Terrell has entered the Heisman Trophy discussion with his 23-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and his 70.3 percent completion rate. But the Broncos needed to rely on their ground game in sloppy conditions in their 37-21 Election Night victory over Kent State.Jarvion Franklin carried 31 times for 134 yards and a touchdown, while Fabian Johnson rushed for 125 yards on 19 carries and another score as Western Michigan rallied from an early 14-0 deficit.The Broncos also have another quality running back in Jamauri Bogan, who missed the Kent State game with an injury but has 589 yards and seven touchdowns this season.Theyve got a lot of backs that are playing well, Buffalo coach Lance Leipold said. Each one has a little bit different in their game. Franklins a great package of speed and power, a bigger back. Bogan has excellent speed, and they make great decisions. They see something, its one cut and get up the field and make things happen.The Bulls are coming off a 35-24 loss to Miami of Ohio. Quarterback Tyree Jackson suffered a right leg injury in that game and Leipold said Jackson is questionable to play on Saturday. If he cant go, Grant Rohach will get the start.Leipold expects his team to be fired up, no matter who is behind the center.Were disappointed how things have gone to this point, he said. I think its an outstanding opportunity to play an undefeated team and all the things that are happening there. Its a monumental kind of task but one we should embrace. Its one that we need to embrace and soak up as much as we can as we try to put ourselves in that position.The Broncos finish their regular season against Toledo, the second-place team in the MAC West Division. But Terrell knows the Bulls could be dangerous if his team looks ahead to that showdown.We were in that position a few years ago, he said. They have nothing to lose. Theyre going to come out and give us everything theyve got. Tiger Williams Jersey . - Chris Tierney snapped a tie with a power-play goal late in the third period as the London Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Erie Otters 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday.Lanny McDonald Jersey .

The lawsuit and the motion filed Monday afternoon also allege the school wanted to make an example of the popular athlete.He has already suffered, and continues to suffer, irreparable injury -- his ability to complete his education and receive the degree he had all but earned prior to his expulsion hangs in the balance, and his employment prospects are dim, attorney Max Stern wrote in the new court filing.
