MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota was looking for a quick start on Saturday against Indiana State. Cheap Colts Jerseys . Mitch Leidner and Drew Wolitarsky made sure thats exactly what the Gophers got.Leidner completed 20 of 30 passes for 295 yards and four touchdowns on Saturday as Minnesota rolled to 592 total yards in a 58-28 win over Indiana State.After struggling through the first quarter in a win against Oregon State, the Gophers (2-0) wanted to get points on the board against their FCS opponent. On Minnesotas opening drive, Leidner and Wolitarsky connected on passes of 21 and 14 yards on third-and-long plays. Then Leidner dropped a 20-yard rainbow into Wolitarskys hands in the corner of the end zone for Minnesotas first score.Wolitarsky caught eight passes for a career-high 125 yards and two touchdowns. The senior wide receiver has led Minnesota in receptions in both of its games this year, exploiting the connection he has with Leidner, Minnesotas senior quarterback.The way we practice, the way we stay after together throw routes -- most of that stuff is done in practice, so when a game comes it just becomes second nature, Wolitarsky said.Leidner made sure Minnesotas hot start continued all day. The Gophers scored five touchdowns and a field goal in seven first-half possessions and put points on the board in nine of the 10 drives Leidner led.I think its pretty big for us offensively because we had a bad taste in our mouth after last week, said Leidner, who only played three quarters on Saturday.Overall, Minnesotas offensive output was the sixth-most yards in school history and its most points in a game since 2006.Early in the game they did things right and we didnt do things well enough, Indiana State coach Mike Sanford said. `We got ourselves behind and the things kept snowpiling.Indiana State quarterback Isaac Harker threw three touchdown passes, all to wide receiver Robert Tonyan, and caught a 10-yard touchdown off a reverse option pass by wide receiver Bob Pugh.The Sycamores (1-1) are 0-16 all-time against teams in the current Big Ten.THE TAKEAWAYMINNESOTA: Junior running back Kobe McCrary made quite an impression in his first extended duty with the Gophers. McCrary, who led the nation with 22 touchdowns last year at Butler Community College, ran 17 times for 176 yards and two touchdowns. He slashed through the Sycamores defense for a 6-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. In the fourth quarter he added a 43-yard run and a 50-yard touchdown run on the same drive. McCrary is expected to challenge sophomores Rodney Smith and Shannon Brooks for snaps in the backfield. Its a good problem to have, the people well have at tailback, Minnesota coach Tracy Claeys said.INDIANA STATE: The Sycamores biggest gain of the day came in the first quarter when Clayton Smith caught a pass that was intended for Pugh. Minnesota defensive back Adekunle Ayinde deflected the pass, but Smith plucked it out of the air in stride and took it 58 yards to the Minnesota 20. The Sycamores ended that drive with a touchdown to tie the score 7-7.NOTABLESMINNESOTA: Leidner tied his career high with four touchdown passes. . The Gophers punted only once on the day and didnt commit a turnover. . Minnesotas 31 first downs were its most in a game in 12 years. .

Claeys said their status would be addressed day by day.INDIANA STATE: Tonyan finished with eight catches for 90 yards to go with his three touchdowns. . Sophomore linebacker Katrell Moss led the Sycamores with nine tackles.THE LAST WORDYou always say, to have a great season your seniors have to play well. . But Im greedy.

Each week during the 2016 college football season, I will offer up my selections and scores for the weekends biggest games and a handful of other key matchups.

Theyre now 7-2, and headed toward achieving that goal. Last week, they were without both top running backs in Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon, but they should have both back this week.

The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. HOUSTON -- In the never-ending search for early-season trends that might serve as an indicator of long-term behavior, the Houston Rockets followed their fifth loss of the season on Wednesday night with a victory over the Portland Trail Blazers one evening later to avoid suffering their first losing skid on the season.The Rockets (7-5), with a new coach and reconfigured roster, remain in search of consistency. Yet, their ability to rebound from setbacks offers optimism, particularly this week given the disappointment that resonated after their come-from-ahead loss against Oklahoma City. Houston led by as many as 11 points before falling 105-103.Were still fairly new as a team, said Rockets guard James Harden, who followed a season-worst 13-point performance against the Thunder with his third triple-double of the season against Portland. Were still trying to figure each other out. As long as we can bounce back and continue to get better, continue to grow and learn from our mistakes, well be all right.Through victory and defeat the Rockets, who host the Utah Jazz (7-6) on Saturday at Toyota Center, are working to establish their identity. They fancy themselves as a space-and-pace outfit yet they rank a modest 14th in the NBA in pace at 97.2 possessions per 48 minutes. They are fifth in offensive rating and are coming off back-to-back games where seven and six players reached double figures in scoring.With the return of guard Patrick Beverley, Houston aims to improve defensively. What theyve shown through a dozen games is a willingness to work at everything.Were going to make some mistakes and we still have some improving to do, Rockets coach Mike DAntonni said. Denzel Rice Jersey. As long as they come with that attitude every day and work at it and fix their mistakes, then good things will happen.Injuries continue to undermine the Jazz, who followed a successful five-game swing through the Eastern Conference with consecutive home losses. Utah went 4-1 before returning home and dropping games against the Memphis Grizzlies and Chicago Bulls, with the absences of guard George Hill (thumb) and forward Derrick Favors (knee) looming large.Weve had a lot of guys adjusting to injury, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. Theres a lot of that going on.I dont want to overreact to one player playing poorly or our team playing poorly. That doesnt get you where you want to go.Without Hill, who has missed six games, the Jazz can appear rudderless. Utah was emboldened by the return of forward Gordon Hayward to open their road trip but Hill provides a veteran touch orchestrating the offense that isnt easily replaced.Second-year guard Dante Exum has started the last four games in place of Hill and over the previous six games is averaging nine points and two assists while shooting just 40.8 percent. Prior to his injury, Hill was averaging 20.4 points and five assists.Incidentally, Utah ranks dead last in the NBA in pace at 90.6 possessions per 48. Hill is questionable for a return against the Rockets, but with or without him Utah must find the rhythm it established on the road only to lose it back in Salt Lake City.Were going to go on this two-game road trip and hopefully get the best of that, Exum said.

Team North America is the wild card of the World Cup of Hockey. Cheap Bengals Jerseys . It features the NHLs brightest young stars, led by Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Nathan MacKinnon, and plays with a breathtaking speed that gives us a glimpse of where the game is headed.This will be the fastest team in the tournament. Its not a stretch to say that there has never been a faster hockey team assembled, from top to bottom.But Team North America is also short on experience, light on physicality and still working on its chemistry. In short, it could win it all or get bounced early. Either way, this has become a must-watch team.How North America could winIt blows past everybody and teams cant keep up. There is so much speed in this lineup that the reigning All-Star Game fastest skater champion, Dylan Larkin, couldnt crack the lineup for its opening pretournament game.Team North Americas players are so quick in transition that they should have consistent odd-man rushes throughout the course of the game, and with guys such as?Johnny Gaudreau and Brandon Saad around to complement the high-end centers, theyll know how to finish.This team has already shown a propensity to absorb the teachings of coach Todd McLellan. Its strong puck support has led to a controlled game both when its leaving the defensive zone and entering the offensive zone. This young team could become more dangerous as the tournament progresses and its young players jell and gain confidence. After beating Team Europe by a combined score of 11-4 in two pretournament games, North Americas players truly believed they were just scratching the surface.The biggest concern six months ago for this group was goaltending -- and then Matt Murray went out and won a Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins, negating that issue.The defense doesnt have the depth of some of the other teams, but it has strong skaters throughout and a bona fide No. 1 in Aaron Ekblad, who will see a ton of playing time.How North America could loseIt hasnt been forced to defend for long stretches in the early going, and there are concerns that the kids dont play a mature, 200-foot game. Privately, the coaching staff was just fine with Team Europe pushing back in the second game because it provides an opportunity to show where the players need to improve defensively.This team could be susceptible to a bigger, stronger team cycling down low and maintaining puck possession, while wearing down the smaller, faster North Americans.The North American players also tended to pass too much in the pretournament games rather than take the shot and score on second and third efforts. Thats a byproduct of having so much skill and all kinds of confidence.We still dont know how this team will look against a bigger, physical team. As Gaudreau pointed out, you cant hit what you cant catch -- but a veteran team with an edge, like Team Finland, could pose problems for the kids.Like Team Canadas, the forward group is composed mostly of centers and there are still some questions about which of the centers are best suited to play on the wing. Theyre undergoing a learning process here -- but dont have a lot of time to figure it out, one of the disadvantages of being a new creation and a team that has never played together before.What to watch for: For McDavid & Co., the future is nowThe hockey world was robbed of a full rookie season from McDavid because of his injury. Now, on a best-on-best stage, we get to see just how good he really is. McLellan has shown a willingness to play McDavid and Eichel together, which is a cool byproduct of this team and this tournament. We might never get to see that combination again.McDavid, according to teammate Mark Scheifele, is even faster than he was his rookie season. Thats scary. The expectation is that hes going to be one of the two or three best players in the game down the road. When this tournament finishes, we might just conclude he already is.

This content contains mentions of sexual assault, bullying/online harassment and suicide. John Riggins Jersey .From the Baylor University sexual assault case to President Obamas Its On Us?initiative to end sexual assault on college campuses, the topic is often recognized as a collegiate issue. However, Audrie & Daisy, a new documentary from the filmmaker team of Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (The Island President, The Rape of Europa), shines a spotlight on the experiences of teenagers coming of age in a time of social media and bullying.We tackle a lot of really hard material in our documentaries, Cohen said via phone. Ive been commiserating about how this film has been the hardest one to make. Its so deeply personal, and tough to watch.Audrie & Daisy -- which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival -- tells the stories of Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman, two teenagers from different communities in different states who were each sexually assaulted, then became fodder for gossip and bullying within their school communities. The torment was so intense that the then-15-year-old Pott, who lived in Saratoga, California, committed suicide eight days after her assault.Coleman, now 19, endured her own struggles as she fought for justice. People within her community did not believe her allegations. She was ostracized at school, and her familys house was burned down.The common thread for Coleman and Pott was that the current climate of teen usage of social media compounded the trauma of their assaults.Its a lawless society, Cohen said of the experiences of teens online. Kids are using social media and not really interacting with their parents about how theyre using it.Coleman had intended to put that January 2012 night behind her. Her family moved out of Maryville, Missouri, and back to Albany, Missouri, where they lived prior to the death of Colemans father in a car accident in 2009. She had closed that chapter in her life.After my case had gone viral, I didnt want to do a whole lot of speaking, and when Bonni and Jon came forward to me with the idea for the documentary, I was still a little partial [to not wanting to speak], Coleman said by phone.It was learning about Pott and other pending cases that inspired her to reopen this part of her life and share her story.I decided to speak out on their behalf, Coleman said.High school culture is heavily influenced by sports, especially in Maryville. At one point in the documentary, Daisys brother laments his own isolation as something hed never experienced before, explicitly because he did play football and baseball.Sports can have an excellent influence or they can have a really negative influence, depending on the vibe of the team and the vibe of the coach, Shenk said. We think sports have a giant role to play in the solution to this.Charlie Coleman, Daisys brother, started coaching high school baseball after his sisters experience. The documentary shows him teaching his students the importance of respecting?women above all. An avid supporter of the cause, he threw out the first pitch at a San Francisco Giants game for the teams Strike Out Violence Day.It isnt until the end of the documentary, however, that it is revealed that Daisy Coleman is an athlete herself.Coleman started wrestling when she was eight years old. Her achievements earned her an athletic scholarship to Missouri Valley College. The sport has been a big part of her life, but following her assault that relationship became complicated.Through elementary, middle and high school, they didnt have a womens division for wrestling, so I was wrestling all boys, Coleman said. After my assault, it was kind of hard for me to get back into it, but it also helped me develop stronger relationships with men.Coleman didnt start wrestling again until her family returned to Albany. The coaches wouldnt allow me to wrestle in Maryville, she said. By the time she hit the mats again, it had been a year since she endured the sexual assault -- she ended up feeling largely comforted and supported.[My teammates] were like brothers and friends to me, she said.Moving forward, Coleman hopes to become a tattoo artist. Shes always enjoyed art, but she thought being a painter or a graphic artist was a little bit too boring for her.Its really empowering to know that people trust you that much [enough to give them a tattoo], she said.Coleman continues to work for justice for young survivors. She volunteers with the organization Promoting Awareness for Victim Empowerment (PAVE), which empowers students, parents and civic leaders to end sexual violence with prevention education and promoting respect of oneself and each other. Through PAVE, she speaks with students and educating others on sexual violence.Its good to know that Im actually helping other people who went through something similar to me, Coleman said.Audrie & Daisy premieres on Netflix on Sept. 23. Redskins Jerseys China Cheap . The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive. Cheap Redskins Jerseys . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler. .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. Within the first few minutes of Issa Raes new scripted comedy Insecure,?which premieres Sunday on HBO, shes boldly confronted by assumed societal expectations placed on the modern woman. Which are: You should be married with children, settled in your career and of course, have it all figured out before turning 30 years old.Her character, also named Issa, is 29 and doesnt have it all figured out. She lives in Los Angeles with her loafer boyfriend Lawrence (Jay Ellis), and works at We Got Yall, an education nonprofit that does academic outreach for inner-city youth. And is unfulfilled in general.In the opening scene, the children of We Got Yall instantly recognize her insecurities the moment she steps into the classroom, and force her to face them. One-by-one, they shout out: Why do you talk like a white girl? Whats up with your hair? Why arent you married? And the most biting statement of all: Aint nobody checking for bitter ass black women anymore.Her character quips back black women arent bitter. We are just tired of settling for less -- meaning settling for lesser education, jobs and/or relationships.Rae, a 31-year-old Stanford grad, and the shows co-creator, executive producer and protagonist, refuses to settle. [As black women], we dont get to be completely human with flaws and boring moments [on television]. We dont get to sit in the minutiae of just being black. Its always high stakes and we dont really get to see a real slice of life. Thats something that was important for me to depict, said Rae. I dont have constant drama. My issues ... on a scale, are very minor.But, just because the show is loosely based on Raes day-to-day interactions, doesnt mean they are only relatable to a specific audience. I am completely open and honest about my life and being a black woman [in the series]. But, the show is not the voice of all black women. Its about my very specific experience, but has elements that are relatable for all.?Having cut her teeth as the star and creator of the Awkward Black Girl?web-series (debuted in 2011 and wrapped in 2013), Rae is accustomed to creating authentiic stories that are crafted on her own terms. Redskins Jerseys Authentic China. However, Insecure, a full Hollywood production, is more polished, without being watered down.Co-created with Larry Wilmore of the now defunct Comedy Central news-talk program The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore -- Insecure feels genuine, yet digestible for a mass audience. And Rae thinks the diversity of her writers room has something to do with that. Our writers room looks like this country. We have young people and old people. People from the LGBTQ community. Theres black, white and Latino people. It was important for me to have that diversity on the team. It should be relatable to all people, she noted.?As a coming-of-age tale for metropolitan professional women, Insecure can be lazily compared to Lena Dunhams Girls.?But, according to Rae, the two series have very difference voices. I dont see the comparison. We have a different perspective. I love [Lenas] take, but our show is more grown-up. Lena and I are just both young women with shows on HBO, Rae added.However, as accomplished as Rae is, she still battles her own set of insecurities. And of course, shes afraid of the show being misunderstood, or worse ... failing. I want people to embrace the show. I dont want people to think that its risky to take on a show that focuses on women, or even black women. I have to campaign for others to have opportunities in future, she said.A line from LA-based rapper Kendrick Lamar s 2015 song Alright rings out in the shows introduction. The lyrics: All my life I has to fight ... Hard times like yah ... But if God got us then we gon be alright, which seems fitting. Issa Rae is going to be alright.Shes bringing quality content to a mass audience that just happens to feature black women in lead roles. There no social justice spin, no soap box statements, its just a funny and smart-as-hell show, thats relatable for all.Ericka N. Goodman-Hughey is a senior editor at espnW.

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings returned to their hard forechecking ways and got a needed win. Air Max 720 Nere .Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking short-handed goal midway through the second period and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2.Derek Forbort and Tyler Toffoli each had a goal and an assist and Devin Setoguchi and also scored for Los Angeles. Peter Budaj made 26 saves.After going winless in their last four games on the road, the Kings returned to Staples Center and found the key piece of their game that had eluded them on the road.For us, its the read, shutting down and getting in on the forecheck, Setoguchi said. When we forecheck well, thats usually when we create our opportunities.Darnell Nurse and Oscar Klefbom scored for the Oilers, who have now lost five straight games to fall to 2-7-1 since starting 7-1-0. Jonas Gustavsson made 21 saves.Oilers coach Todd McLellan said Carters short-handed goal hurt the most but Edmonton was ultimately doomed by another slow start.It seems to vary from night to night positionally, McLellan said. Whether its a D-man with a turnover, the forwards coughing something up and not getting in position at the right time. Its certainly something were aware of, were concerned with and trying to fix.Trailing 2-0 after the first period, the Oilers scored twice in the second to tie it before Carter scored at 9:06 of the middle period.Nurse made it 2-1 with a shot off the crossbar 3:44 into the second. A little under five minutes later, Klefbom tied it when he caught a pass in the slot and lifted an impressive backhand shot off the crossbar and behind Budaj.But just 34 seconds later, Carter won a faceoff and Toffoli led a 2-on-1 rush that resulted in Carters game-winner.We didnt get the save, but there were other mistakes on it, McLellan said. I thought it sucked the life out of us for a little bit.Setoguchi scored off a rebound with 6:45 left to play to make it 4-2, his third goal this season and third since the 2013-14.I didnt think we were that good in the first couple of periods, Setoguchi said. Then, in the third we had a couple good shifts back-to-back and we were able to score on one.Forbort scored his first goal of the season to put the Kings on the board 5:09 into the game. Toffoli then gave Los Angeles a 2-0 lead a few minutes later when he tapped in a centering pass from Carter.There was a bunch of traffic down there, (Kyle) Clifford made a good play and I was lucky it went in, Forbort said. Game notes Kings C Anze Kopitar remained out for the third straight game with an upper-body injury. . Kings D Matt Greene was a healthy scratch. . Oilers D Dillon Simpson and C Anton Lander was a healthy scratch. . Forbort had his second multipoint game of the season and his career. . Carter had his team-high fourth multipoint game. .

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a long-shot appeal from the Washington Redskins challenging a law that bars offensive trademarks, although the justices could still resolve the same issue in another pending case.The court turned away the teams unusual request to have its case heard before a federal appeals court in Richmond, Virginia, weighs in. The Redskins are appealing the governments decision to cancel its trademarks over concerns the nickname disparages Native Americans.Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie said the team would not comment.In a separate case, the justices will decide whether the trademark law violates the First Amendment. That case involves The Slants, an Asian-American rock band that was denied a trademark on the ground that its name disparages Asians.A federal appeals court sided with the band. The Redskins wanted both cases heard together.Both the team and the band argue that it is unconstitutional for the government to reject trademark rights for offenssive speech. Air Max 90 Uomo Scontate. Band member Simon Tam has said he wanted to transform a derisive term about the shape of Asian eyes into a statement of ethnic and cultural pride. The Redskins have similarly claimed their name honors Native Americans, but the team has faced years of legal challenges from Indian groups that say the name is racist.Despite a lot of attention to the nickname and public pressure to change it, Redskins owner Dan Snyder has said he never would agree to a switch.Even without trademark protection, the Redskins can continue using their nickname. But the team could lose money by being unable to block the sale of counterfeit merchandise by suing competitors that infringe on the trademark.The team registered six trademarks including the name from 1967 to 1990.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' ' 
No. Charles Kanoff Jersey . 21 Oklahoma State will be looking to extend several streaks when the Cowboys host Southeastern Louisiana Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium.For a start, the Cowboys have won 20 consecutive home openers and have never lost to an FCS opponent in 10 opportunities under coach Mike Gundy.They have won seven of their last eight season openers and 46 of its last 51 over unranked opponents.And though this is their first meeting with the Lions (Fox Sports Network, 3:30 p.m. ET), they are 4-0 against teams from the Southland Conference.With 18 starters returning from a 10-3 team, the Cowboys are looking to make a run for the Big 12 title that eluded them when they lost their last two games of the regular season, including the finale to rival Oklahoma, to finish 7-2. The Sooners wound up 8-1 in the conference and advanced to the college football playoffs.With quarterback Mason Rudolph, a deep stable of running backs, and two of their top three receivers returning to operate behind an offensive line that welcomes back five starters, the Cowboys should once again have an explosive offense.Rudolph passed for 3,770 yards in completing 62.3 percent of his attempts last year. Wide receivers James Washington and Marcel Ateman combined for 98 receptions for 1,853 yard and 15 touchdowns. Ateman, however, likely wont be available under October after having foot surgery in late July.The Cowboys used a running-back-by-committee approach last year and have added some new weapons in freshman Justice Hill, rated the top running back prospect in Oklahoma, and Barry Sanders Jr. Yes, he is the son of the schools Heisman Trophy winner and transferred from Stanford for his senior season.Sanders rushed for 315 yards for the Cardinal last season, which would have put him third on the Cowboys last season behind returnee Chris Carson (517) and J.W. Walsh (359), who has exhausted his eligibility.We should be improved, Gundy said of the running backs. Theyre a year stronger, a year more experienced, a year more matured.Weve got a couple of new running backs too. We certainly need to find a way to improve in that area. Wed like to average four yards per carry. Weve got a ways to go, but were certainly further ahead than we were last season.Sanders also could be a factor in the return game.So far hes done really well, Gundy said.

The Mercedes driver secured pole position after topping all three parts of qualifying in Melbourne. Hamilton finished the session nearly four tenths clear of team-mate Nico Rosberg and over eight tenths clear of Sebastian Vettel in third.To underline the pace of the world champion, Hamilton was 2.5 seconds quicker than his pole lap of 12 months ago. They were some sexy laps, they just felt so good, flowing and no real mistakes and that really is all you can hope for as a driver is to always improve, said Hamilton.I enjoyed driving the car in qualifying today, I got the set up just right. Qualifying report Lewis Hamilton dominates in Australia to take pole The pole position was the 50th of Hamiltons F1 career, but it was overshadowed by heavy criticism of the new qualifying format which saw the result settled with over four minutes of the session remaining.I miss the old days when they went out and just run and run and run. Senna would come in, sit there and then have to go and do another lap, that was cool, Hamilton told Sky Sports F1.One lap is neat, but that was not so exciting for the fans to watch as everyone was sat in the garages. But all my engineers said that would be the case, they say they told the FIA and FOM that that would be the case and they ignored them.

SAINT PAUL, Minn. Tremon Smith Jersey . -- As 50th anniversary celebrations go, the one underway among the Los Angeles Kings has been a notable bust thus far.The Kings, who were one-sixth of the NHLs notable expansion in 1967, are celebrating a half-century on the ice this season. That celebration has included two losses in the first two games, and the loss of their star goaltender indefinitely.The Kings (0-2-0) head off on their first multi-game road trip of the season looking not only for wins, but for answers about who may step up to fill the defensive void left when goalie Jonathan Quick went down in the opening period of their first game of the season. Hes expected to miss weeks, if not months, due to an ailment in the groin area, and has given way to the tandem of Jeff Zatkoff and Peter Budaj in the Los Angeles crease.One of those two will look to stymie the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday when the Kings visit the Twin Cities. Los Angeles also be looking for goal support from an offense that has scored three times in the first two games.Kings coach Darryl Sutter faces that challenge along with trying to get his team into a rhythm of practices and games early in a new season as they venture outside California for the first time.After a day off, which is obviously required now, youre trying to get the flow, Sutter told LA Kings Insider. You get to know your players in terms of how they are after a day off. Some guys, even though they need the rest, theyre not as sharp the next day. Some days just go right through it.On the opposing bench, Sutter will see a familiar face from Southern California on Tuesday. Bruce Boudreau will be coaching his third game for the Wild, after coming to Minnesota in the off-season when the Anaheim Ducks dismissed him. He had spent four full seasons in Orange County and won the Pacific Division in each of them.Minnesota (1-1-0) looked lifeless in its season opener, falling 3-2 in St. Louis. When the Wild fell behind Winnipeg 2-0 after 20 minutes in their home opener, Boudreau offered some harsh words in the locker room.His team responded with four unanswered goals and its first win. It was a milestone for the new coach, who is instilling his style of play on a team thats nearly identical to the one which lost to Dallas in the opening round of the playoffs last spring.Theyre getting it, Boudreau said. Hockeys not brain surgery. ... Play the game.Tuesdays game will mark the return of Devin Setoguchi to Minnesota. The Kings right winger played 117 games for the Wild between 2011 and 2013 after coming over from San Jose in a controversial trade that sent All-Star defenseman Brent Burns to the Sharks.After spending last season in Europe, Setoguchi is back in the NHL with Los Angeles but has yet to record a point in the first two games. Demarcus Robinson Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. Damien Williams Jersey .

Real Madrid needed a late goal by substitute Jese Rodriguez to earn a 3-2 victory at Valencia to stay in third place and three points behind its title rivals. NEW YORK -- There was a near consensus about Baylors hiring of Matt Rhule from administrators, coaches and agents gathered for the annual National Football Foundation Hall of Fame dinner.Great hire for Baylor. Strange choice for Rhule.Born in New York, Rhule went to high school and college in State College, Pennsylvania, and spent the majority of his career in the Northeast, including the past four seasons as Temples coach. Theres nothing about his persoonality or his playing style that screams Texas, which makes Baylor an interesting job for him.

Brazils Daniel Dias, the Michael Phelps of the Paralympics, has claimed his 24th medal in the pool to become the most decorated male swimmer in the Games history. Kevin Toliver II Jersey .The 28-year-old is a national hero and a thunderous roar went up from the home crowd in Rio as he secured his fourth gold of the Games in the mens S5 100m freestyle.Brazils most successful Paralympic athlete won by more than a body length to bag a hat-trick of titles, having already won in London and Beijing.Minutes later Dias backed up as part of a bronze medal-winning Brazilian 400m medley relay to take his place in the history books.The feat eclipsed Australian Matthew Cowdreys record but is still way off the astonishing 55 medals for the now retired US swimmer Trischa Zorn.Surrounded by thousands of fans chanting Brazil on Saturday (Sunday AEST), Dias said hed never heard a louder crowd.The whole place was vibrating, he said.They were the best days of my life. My family, my kids, my parents, my wife all here and this whole crowd - it was unforgettable.Born in Sao Paulo state without hands and only one foot, the poster boy of the Brazilian Paralympics has had an incredible campaign.Dias celebratory laps around the pool deck have been a carbon copy of American legend Phelps last month, down to the over-the-railing kiss of his son.The most successful athlete in Olympic history, Phelps finished his career in Rio with 23 gold medals and 28 overall.Dias said hes honoured to be compared to his hero, but isnt done writing his own name in history.He is a great athlete.

WASHINGTON -- A month removed from a dreadful start to the season, the Washington Wizards just might becoming together under coach Scott Brooks. Joe Montana Jersey .It continued Friday night, as John Wall had 29 points and 11 assists while guiding a Wizards offense that committed a season-low five turnovers in a 122-108 victory over the Detroit Pistons.Bradley Beal added 25 points and Marcin Gortat had 12 to go with 14 rebounds, helping Washington score its most points of the season while winning for the fourth time in five games.I think were getting into a nice little rhythm that were understanding what we want to do as a basketball team on both ends, said Brooks, who replaced Randy Wittman after last season. Were still not where we want to be. But I see some progress, I see some belief in each other, and thats what its all about.After losing eight of 10 to start the season, the Wizards have gone 9-6 since to move within three games of .500 (11-14).Recently, Washington has at least 109 points in its last three wins. And against a Detroit team that entered Friday allowing the second-fewest points per game, Washington shot 57.1 percent (44 for 77) from the floor and 48 percent (12 of 25) from 3-point range.Were competing. Were into guys. Were making guys uncomfortable, Wall said. At first we were giving ups 3s, giving up layups and giving up transition points. I think (when) were a team thats more physical, we give ourselves a better chance to win.Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points to lead the Pistons. Andre Drummond added 13 points and 12 rebounds, but Detroit allowed its most points all season while seeing its streak of holding opponents under 100 halted at seven games.John Wall was great. Beal was great, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. We couldnt handle them at all. They were getting wherever they wanted on the floor making plays. Then the other guys shot the ball well two, but those two guys just destroyed us.The Wizards broke it open during an excellent second quarter, shooting 5 of 7 from 3-point range and taking a 13-point lead after a 21-8 run, part of a season high 38 points in a quarter.We know this is a team who loves to slow the game down a little bit, Beal said. But we didnt want to play their game. We wanted them to adjust to us.TIP-INSPistons: Began the game 1 of 8 from 3-point range ... Drummond picked up his second personal foul with 4:15 left in the first quarter. F/C Aron Baynes then replaced Drummond and accrued three personals before the end of the period.Wizards: Wall and Gortat each had their 14th double-doubles. ... F Markieff Morris returned after missing his only start of the season in Wednesdays win over Charlotte. ... Reserve F/C Jason Smith left in the second quarter with a strained right hamstring.BROTHER, BROTHERWizards F Markieff Morris blocked twin brother Marcus shot on the baseline midway through the third quarter, then reached out a right arm to lift him off the floor.He put it right in my face; I cant just not block the shot, Markieff said.In their fifth game as opponents since playing as teammates in Phoenix, Markieff finished with 11 points while Marcus had two.QUOTABLEThere were so many times during the timeout I didnt know which one was giving us fits. -- Brooks, on facing the Morris twins when he coached Oklahoma City.UP NEXT:Pistons: Complete their seventh back-to-back set at home on Saturday against Indiana.Wizards: Host the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday to close a three-game homestand. Steve Young Jersey .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. Deion Sanders Jersey . JOHNS, N. . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. He admits to letting his teammates down but it seems Steven Mays lengthy suspension earlier this year isnt being held against him.The Gold Coast defender copped a five-match AFL ban after a high bump on Brisbanes Stefan Martin during the round-three derby between the Queensland clubs.Mays subsequent absence from the team coincided with a run of defeats that cruelled any hope of an inaugural finals campaign for the Suns.If May was worried however that his actions damaged his standing at the club, those doubts were laid to rest last week when he was nominated as captain for Saturdays clash with Fremantle.The imposing defender led the Suns to an impressive victory over the Dockers and says any concern he had to prove himself to teammates were surely at an end.A lot of people were saying it was undisciplined or selfish what I did but obviously my teammatees and my coaches dont feel the same way because they wouldnt have appointed me captain on the weekend, May said. Ronnie Lott Jersey. Thats a positive I can take away from it.With captain Gary Ablett sidelined for the remainder of the year due to shoulder surgery, the Suns leadership is set to rotate between May and forward Tom Lynch until the end of the season.Some have even suggested Ablett should relinquish the club captaincy to focus on his physical fitness but May says if that happens he wont be actively pursuing the job fulltime.To be captain isnt one of my goals, he said.If something like that was to pop up and the team wanted or needed me to step up, I would definitely consider it but its not something Ive got pencilled in.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. Logan Thomas Jersey . -- Michigan is proud of its 928 victories, the most in major college football, and a Big Ten-best 42 conference titles.The Wolverines, though, have not won a Big Ten championship in 12 years -- their longest stretch without one since falling short between 1950 and 1964 titles.We dont really talk about the drought too much, defensive end Chris Wormley said. We just talk about trying to win a Big Ten championship and a national championship and thinking big about what we want to accomplish this season.In the Big Ten opener for both teams, No. 4 Michigan (3-0) will host Penn State (2-1) on Saturday.The Wolverines need to win their first of nine conference games to move a step closer to their goal. Theyre expected to win by nearly three touchdowns after taking the first three games easily against Colorado, Central Florida and Hawaii.Here are some things to watch when the Nittany Lions visit the Big House:DELAYED DEBUT: Jourdan Lewis, one of Michigans top players, is expected to start at cornerback after missing the first three games with an undisclosed injury. The Wolverines will welcome the second-team All-American back to the lineup to help cut down on big plays. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh praised Lewis for the way he has dealt with the nagging injury.The guy has been a stud, a real stud in everything hes done, he said.LACKING LINEBACKERS: Penn State has lost three starting linebackers to injury, including Nyeem Wartman-White, who hurt his right knee against Temple and has a second straight season-ending injury. Brandon Smith, a walk-on, has made the most of his opportunity to play. Nittany Lions coach James Franklin said White played 57 snaps last week after playing just three in his career.Hes a great example of you never know in life when opportunity is going to knock professionally, personally, Franklin said.The inexperienced linebackers will face quite a test, trying to defend tight end Jake Butt.PIVOTAL PLAYS: Michigan has had success getting offenses off the field, letting opponents convert just 4 of 38 third downs, the best success rate in the FBS. The Nittany Lions, meanwhile, have converted a Big Ten-low 27 percent of their third downs on offense. Franklin said what happens before third down is the key factor.First and second down kind of tells the story for both teams, Franklin said. Tells the story for their defense. Tells the story for our offense.BALL SECURITY: Nittany Lions quarterback Trace McSorley has shown some promise in his first three starts, but has lost three fumbles and thrown two interceptions.Weve had multiple turnovers in each game and its something we need to cut out, McSorley said.GUESSING GAME: Harbaugh chose to start quarterback Wilton Speight ahead of John OKorn and Shane Morris, but he has played both backups in part to give opponents one more player to prepare for.Its a good thing to let your opponent know that a lot of things are options, Harbaugh said.---AP college football website: version corrects to identify a Penn State linebacker as Brandon Smith. Malik Carney Jersey . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. Danny Amendola Jersey . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. . 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. DENVER -- On the roster, 36-year-old Mike Miller is listed as a shooting guard/small forward. His most essential position is mentor.Its an assignment Miller takes seriously on a young squad still learning how to consistently win.The Denver Nuggets boast a rookie sharpshooter (Jamal Murray), an array of up-and-comers (Emmanuel Mudiay, Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic) and a few veteran leaders hoping to blend it all together.Being a dinosaur in this league, and seeing everything that I have, Ive been a part of really talented teams that have won 23 games. Ive been a part of talented teams that have won championships, said Miller, who agreed to a two-year deal in July. Whats the difference? To me, its the culture and having that understanding in the locker room where you can hold guys accountable. Those are things you have to start developing.These days, the Nuggets are all about development. That begins with Mudiay, a 20-year-old point guard who steadily improved during the second half of last season. Theres also Jokic, a versatile big man who is loaded with confidence after a summer in which he helped Serbia to a silver medal at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. And its hard to overlook Nurkic, a bruising 7-footer who pairs nicely in the middle with Jokic.The reason so many of our young players grew last year is we allowed them to play through mistakes. It wasnt a situation where a guy made a mistake and looked over at the bench and was like, `Am I coming out? said coach Michael Malone, whose team finished 33-49 in his first season in Denver. Guys had the confidence to play through their mistakes.That approach certainly will apply to Murray, the seventh overall pick during the June draft. No doubt, Murray can shoot. No doubt, the Kentucky product will at times play like a rookie.All part of the process, Malone said.For a change, the Nuggets actually head into a season healthy. Wilson Chandler is back from a hip injury that sidelined him all last season and Danilo Gallinaaris ankle -- the one that forced an early end to his season -- is healed. Trey Flowers Jersey. Im well rested and ready to go, Gallinari said Monday.This city has grown on Gallinari, so much so that the Italian forward has a house in Denver. This roster has grown on him, too. So much so that hes voiced his desire to remain with the squad whenever trade rumors seem to surface.I think were close and getting closer, Gallinari said.Still, the Nuggets are a team without an alpha player -- a LeBron James or Steph Curry type that can take over in big moments.The way general manager Tim Connelly sees it, maybe that top-notch player is already on the roster, and just needs some time to mature. Possibly even Mudiay, the seventh overall pick in 2015.Im an alpha player. Ive been like that my whole life, Mudiay said. I dont plan to change that.Nor do the Nuggets want him to. Millers task is to help Mudiay & Co. elevate their games -- and think big.Our expectations and our goals have got to be playoffs, Miller said. I wouldnt say that if I didnt think it was realistic, because nothing good comes out of making unrealistic goals, especially for a young team.Keep winning and the fans should return, too. At times last season, the Pepsi Center looked half-empty.President Josh Kroenke understands. The Nuggets have to earn back respect after missing the postseason for a third straight year. This offseason, Kroenke made a big push to bring in Dwyane Wade, before Wade signed with Chicago.Fans are going to see a direction with a young roster that has a chance to be pretty good, Kroenke said.Game notes The Nuggets will retire Dikembe Mutombos No. 55 jersey in a ceremony on Oct. 29, even wearing the Rainbow Skyline throwback jerseys for the occasion. Mutombo was drafted fourth overall by Denver in 1991 and played for the Nuggets before leaving after the 1995-96 season.
