The NCAA is sending out a questionnaire to cities interested in hosting college championship events that asks the prospective hosts to detail how they will protect athletes and fans from discrimination. Authentic Colts Jerseys .The questionnaire follows the NBAs decision Thursday to move the All-Star Game out of Charlotte, North Carolina, over the states House Bill 2, which limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.Prospective host cities must identify local anti-discrimination laws in the questionnaire.We are committed to providing a championship experience within an inclusive environment for student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans, Mark Lewis, NCAA executive vice president for championships and alliances, said in a statement. With the Board of Governors direction, we are taking steps to assure that anyone associated with an NCAA championship event will be treated with fairness and respect.For championships that are already booked through 2018 -- including mens basketball tournaments in 2017 in Greensboro, North Carolina, and 2018 in Charlotte -- the hosts must fill out the same questionnaire.?The NCAA board of governors will review the information for these events and determine if they will stay in those cities.The questionnaire also applies to facilities to ensure there are no anti-discrimination policies within the buildings.The completed forms for future events, which are due by Aug. 12, will be sent to the specific sport committees for evaluation.Information from ESPN senior writer Andy Katz contributed to this report.

Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed.AKRON, Ohio -- In the dark, head-to-head, 11 shots clear of the pack, from rooftops and in every other conceivable way, Tiger Woods has dominated at Firestone Country Club. He just says it makes him feel comfortable. "Ive done it all different ways, thats the thing," Woods said Wednesday, the day before beginning his run at an eighth win at the Bridgestone Invitational. "Some years Ive striped it and have really played well, and other years Ive hit it all over the lot and had to be creative. Ive chipped and putted and holed out. Its been such a mixed bag." Woods, coming off a disappointing British Open and steeling for the PGA Championship next week at Oak Hill, headlines a bumper crop of world-class players who are entered. The 73-player field includes 49 of the top 50 players in the world ranking, including this years major champions (Adam Scott, Justin Rose, Phil Mickelson), last years winner (Keegan Bradley) and European stars Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Lee Westwood. Yet, Woods always seems to grab the spotlight. Thats what happens when a player has won more than $9.5 million in just 14 appearances at a single venue. Woods first win, in what was then called the NEC Invitational, came in 1999 when he shot a third-round 62 to win in his third appearance, holding off Mickelson by a shot. A year later, Woods triumphal march to an 11-shot victory on the final day was delayed by inclement weather, with his final putt finding the bottom of the cup in almost total darkness. The strobe lights of photographers made it look like a scene from an old movie. The year after that, Woods overcame Jim Furyk in an epic, seven-hole, sudden-death playoff for his third win in a row at Firestone. After finishing fourth, tying for fourth and tying for second the next three years, Woods strung together wins in his next four appearances. The win in 2006 is remembered for a wayward 9-iron shot that hit on the cart path near the ninth hole and bounced onto the roof of the clubhouse, the ball being pocketed by a kitchen helper. Woods won by eight shots in 2007 and then missed the tournament the following year as he recovered from knee surgery. Even that didnt halt his string as he returned in 2009 and took advantage of Padraig Harringtons triple-bogey 8 on the 70th hole to win by four strokes. "This is one of those courses where, for me over the years, I just have felt very comfortable," Woods said. "I think my record has been pretty good since Ive turned pro here." But, as there always seems to be with Woods since hhis personal meltdown, there are nagging questions. Colts Youth Jerseys. After streaking to 14 major championship victories, he has failed to win in his last 17 tries. The latest disappointment came at Muirfield two weeks ago when he seemed in perfect spot to win but faded to a closing 74 and watched rival Mickelson come out of nowhere to swoop in and grab the claret jug. "I had a chance to win and didnt get it done on Sunday," Woods said. Others are plotting to not only win the Bridgestone but use it as a springboard to the years final major a week later. Mickelson, returning to action after the dramatic win at Muirfield, is geared up to continue his hot play. He won the Scottish Open the week before the British. Why not make it four in a row by sweeping through the Bridgestone and PGA? "Playing the week before (a major) personally helps me play my best and get my best golf out," he said. Rose won the U.S. Open at Merion, then turned around and had his high hopes dashed when he missed the cut in his homelands national championship. After time off, hes rejuvenated and ready for golfs version of the stretch run. "You cant rest on your laurels," he said. "After the U.S. Open I had time constraints and would miss the odd practice session. Your game soon lets you know about that. The last couple of weeks Ive had the chance to get back to normal, get back to doing all the right things." A player trying to salvage what has been a winless calendar year is Rory McIlroy, still No. 3 in the world rankings behind Woods and Mickelson. But hes encouraged by looking back at where he was just about a year ago. "I was really searching last year for answers," he said. "Ive come to the conclusion that I just need to go out there and play. I was focusing too much on mechanics and technique, and I just needed to go out there and see the shots and play them. Obviously, that seemed to work well." It worked so well that McIlroy had a top 10 at the Bridgestone and then turned around and captured the 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island. Bradley, who took advantage of Furyks double bogey on the 72nd hole to win last year, gets wired just coming to Firestone, an historic old layout that has hosted many memorable majors and regular tour events over the decades. "Because of the history of the golf course, you really can feel it," he said. "Its one of these courses where you can tell the tournament has got a little more of a buzz to it." This year, the buzz is especially loud.

DETROIT -- A pair of struggling teams coming off one-goal losses meet Sunday when the Detroit Red Wings host the Calgary Flames at Joe Louis Arena. Mark Pysyk Jersey .The Red Wings (8-9-1) lost 1-0 to the Capitals in Washington on Friday night while the Flames (7-11-1) dropped a 3-2 decision to the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night in Calgary.Detroit is 2-7-1 in its past 10 games.I think its only human to get a little frustrated, Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg told www.mlive.com. I think its easy to get frustrated when youre doing good things, when you correct mistakes, youre playing better and you dont get points. But weve got to see the positive in it, too, and stay with it. Eventually we will get our wins.Detroit seemed to play well enough to win in its last two games, but has nothing to show for it.The Red Wings lost 4-3 to the Tampa Bay Lightning at Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday on Nikita Kucherovs goal with 1:10 left. On Friday, Washingtons Jay Beagle scored the only goal of the game with 5:11 to play.These are the ones you want to win, or least get to overtime and get a point and have a chance for the two, Zetterberg said after Friday nights game. Leaving here with nothing is hard but weve got to try to see the positive in what we did better than before and keep going from there.The 10-game slide coincides with the absence of left winger Thomas Vanek, who missed the past 11 games with a hip strain.He is expected to return to the lineup on Sunday.I think a lot of the guys will feel some of the weight come off their shoulders with him back in the lineup, goalie Jimmy Howard said. Hes really good around the net, hes really good at deflections, little re-directions.Before Vanek was injured, he led the team with four goals and eight points in seven games. Detroit was 3-7-1 without him, only averaged 1.64 goals per game, were shut out three times and only 5-for-40 on the power play.Hes a big player for us, Justin Abdelkader said. Obviously, he got off to that great start. It was tough to see him go down with injury. Hell come in and bring a veteran presence. Hes really strong on the puck and hes got a great shot.Center Darren Helm, one of Vaneks linemates, is out 6-to-8 weeks after suffering a dislocated shoulder against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.The Flames have injury issues of their own.Star forward Johnny Gaudreau will also miss 6-to-8 weeks because of a broken finger on his right hand suffered in the 1-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.A slash by Eric Staal caused the injury and Calgary said that Gaudreau was slashed 11 times in the game without a penalty call.There are tactics with good players, but when you chop a guy in the hand theres a rule that says you cant do that, Flames general manager Brad Treliving told the Calgary Herald. Were not naive -- do we whack guys, too? Probably. But the frustration comes when that turns into a player being out for an extended period of time. Derek MacKenzie Jersey . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. http://www.cheapfloridapanthersjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-denis-malgin-jersey .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. CHICAGO -- The soreness finally caught up to White Sox outfielder Melky Cabrera.The veteran switch hitter aggravated a right wrist injury during Chicagos 4-0 loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night and will miss a couple of days with a mild sprain.Cabrera originally hurt his wrist when he tried for a diving catch during a 13-2 loss at Cleveland on June 18. He tweaked it again on a swing in the series opener against the Twins and hit his wrist against the wall while going after Brian Doziers second homer of the game.Its difficult because I want to play, but the doctors said the best for me right now is just to take a rest for a couple of days because I have inflammation there, Cabrera said through a translator. But yeah, for me, I want to play. I dont like to be on the bench. I want to play because the team needs me and I need the team.Cabrera, who is batting .294 with eight homers and 39 RBI in 74 games, had an MRI on Wednesday. He signed a $42 million, three-year contract with Chicago in December 2014.Manager Robin Ventura said he doesnt think Cabrera will need a trip to the disableed list. Connor Brickley Jersey. Its tough, he wants to be in there, he wants to play, he wants to fight through it, Ventura said. But the training staff, the medical staff thinks its better that he sits for three or four days to have that heal.Avisail Garcia started in left against Minnesota on Wednesday night and went 1 for 3 with an RBI single in Chicagos 9-6 victory.While Cabrera could play the field and doesnt notice the injury when he hits from the right side, the White Sox had just two healthy position players on the bench. But they optioned reliever Matt Purke to Triple-A Charlotte after the win and could add another hitter in a corresponding move before the series finale.You dont like anytime you dont have Melky in there, Ventura said before Wednesdays game. Hes a switch hitter, middle of the lineup, it hurts to not have him in there.

Some of the sports stories The Associated Press is covering Wednesday. Alexander Mogilny Jersey . A full Sports Digest will be sent by about 3 p.m. All times EST:- For every Peyton Manning who survived a rough rookie year on his way to NFL stardom, theres a much longer list of players rushed onto the field too early or with not enough help before being discarded in the continuing search for the franchise quarterback. Not even being picked first or second overall is a guarantee, but the first 24 games of a career are a pretty good measure of future success -- or failure.- BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens understand how embarrassing it would be to lose to the winless Cleveland Browns on national television. They would rather focus on the benefits of a victory, which would thrust them into sole possession of first place in the AFC North.- The Cleveland Browns are winless, 0-9 for the first time in franchise history. They are ranked dead last at No. 32 in the AP Pro32. And now they must play on a short week at their hated rival, the Ravens -- who used to be the Browns before fleeing to Baltimore in 1996.- Nick Saban is on the verge of another milestone victory, another number that gives a glimpse at how dominant his teams have been at Alabama. A victory by the Crimson Tide against Mississippi State on Saturday in Tuscaloosa will be Sabans 40th when Alabama has been ranked No. 1, matching Bobby Bowden and Woody Hayes for the most by a coach.- While offensive stars like Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson more often than not command the lions share of the ACC limelight on game day, there are plenty of stars on the other side of the ball who have helped elevate the conference to new heights.- There is no Heisman hype for the Big 12 Conference, even with some impressive performances this season from players like Oklahoma receiver Dede Westbrook and Texas running back DOnta Foreman. Still, the Big 12 isnt likely to have a player in New York next month for the Heisman Trophy ceremony. Maybe next year.- COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&Ms Trevor Knight is the highest profile graduate transfer in the Southeastern Conference this season, jumping in to fill a major void at quarterback for the 10th-ranked Aggies. However, teams across the league are sprinkled with players who moved into the SEC as graduate students after careers at other schools.- PHOENIX -- On the last full day of the annual general managers meeting, Major League Baseball goes over possible rules changes.- MIAMI -- Dwyane Wade will play Thursday in Miami for the 525th time, and for the first time in some other teams uniform. When the Chicago Bulls visit the Heat, itll be a homecoming for the three-time NBA champion.- COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Some of Americas best soccer players returned this week to central Ohio, where a 20,000-seat stadium named for its insurance company sponsor is considered a spiritual home of the mens national team.- East Kilbrides players are the talk of Scottish soccer and beyond thanks to a 27-match winning run that has the tiny community-led club from the outskirts of Glasgow dreaming big.

The players spoke Jan. 13 during a Major League Baseball Players Association conference call after Rodriguez sued the union and Major League Baseball to overturn an arbitrators decision suspending him for the 2014 season and post-season.

PETERSBURG, Fla. Nineteenth century English writer Charles Caleb Colton once said, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In the pro wrestling game -- or, if you prefer, sports entertainment industry -- plenty of opportunities exist to pay homage to those who came before you.Co-opting a specific move or historical sequence from a classic match is generally a surefire way to get a reaction from fans, but generally speaking, theres usually a gap in time thats measured in years before you have any real value in a tribute -- but dont tell that to The Miz and Dolph Ziggler.On Sunday, as part of the WWEs Backlash pay-per-view, the duo squared off for The Mizs Intercontinental championship. Soon after the bell rang, Miz got a full head of steam and charged at Ziggler, who hit a double-leg takedown, a series of punches and then locked in a rear-naked choke.If that sounds familiar, its the exact way that CM Punks MMA debut?against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 went down. Punk charged forward and met the same fate as The Miz did -- only Punk didnt have the luxury of being able to grab the ropes or roll out of the ring to escape.While it would be easy to look at The Miz and Dolph Ziggler using their stage to mock CM Punk, it might not be as simple and straightforward as that. Both guys are big Cleveland sports fans and Ohio natives, so making their callback to a big event inn Cleveland makes sense in and of itself. Jake McCabe Jersey. And with the level of notoriety that UFC fight received, it could just as easily have been a tribute. Not much was made of the sequence on commentary, although JBL did potentially make a roundabout reference to Punk when commenting on Zigglers future.I asked him last week, if you dont win this match, whats gonna happen? said JBL, as The Miz ran toward Ziggler to begin the sequence. He said, Im going to have to re-evaluate. I said, What, youre going to quit? He said No, re-evaluate. Im not sure what that means. Doesnt sound good.Its worth noting that Punk utilized several historic spots from MMA fights and integrated them into his own wrestling matches and move sets, including several showdowns with Daniel Bryan. Punk often utilized wrestling history as well; he adopted the Macho Man Randy Savages flying elbow (and even donned a pair of Savage-styled trunks as a tribute after his passing), and took a large portion of his move set from Japanese-style wrestling.In the case of someone who often utilized real life and history to augment his matches during his days in the wrestling ring, it only seems fair that his own UFC career would become a source of inspiration, too.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- Formula One rivals Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg cant even shake hands. Andrew Cogliano Jersey .The Mercedes pair showed their competitive spirit Thursday by ignoring a request from photographers to stand up and shake hands before their pre-race news conference ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand PrixInstead, both sank their hands into their pockets before sitting down to answer questions.With Hamiltons title on the line -- and Rosbergs first beckoning -- neither wants to give any ground heading into Sundays race.Rosberg has a 12-point lead and is favored to clinch the title, needing only a third-place finish if Hamilton wins.Thats not going to make me go faster, to have such thoughts about something that might or might not happen, said Rosberg, runner-up to Hamilton for the past two seasons. This is the third time the championship has gone to the wire. So Im more relaxed.Asked how he will approach the decider, Rosberg wasnt shy.Im going to go for the race and win and do what it takes to get that, he said, adding within the limits of whats acceptable.Mutual respect between the drivers remains, however, stemming from their days as teenagers racing karts against each other.The thing we still have from back then is the base respect and that will never go. That has helped us through the years, Rosberg said. Its generally (a) neutral (relationship now), but of course its a difficult environment.However, three years of challenging each other for the title against has largely eroded the carefree relationship they used to have.We had a lot in common. We both liked pizza and eating boxes of Kellogs Frosties (cereal), Hamilton said Thursday. Stepping away from being our competitive selves, Im proud of how hes driven, particularly this year. Generally, its been a pleasure to have him as a teammate.Even if Hamilton wins his 10th race of the season on Sunday, it may not be enough to bring a fourth F1 title that would draw him level with French great Alain Prost and German driver Sebastian Vettel.(When I was) 43 points behind, I thought it was impossible, Hamilton said. Somehow I turned it round. (Then) I was 33 points behind and have almost turned it around.Hamiltons season has been hit by mechanical issues and engine failure -- unthinkable during pre-season testing when both Mercedes were hugely reliable.That still seems to grate with him.When I look back on the season if theres anything to be negative about would be cars failing in certain places, Hamilton said. (With the same engine) as the car that wouldnt stop during testing.Prior to the start of the season, Mercedes swapped several mechanics around from each side of the garage. Some of Rosbergs went to work with Hamilton and vice-versa, in a bid to end the divide that had been growing over the previous two seasons.The issue of the mechanics swap was put to Rosberg at Thursdays news conference, but before he could answer, Hamilton interjected: What was the explanation given to you?Hamilton then pledged to reveal more in the future.Youll have to buy my book ... down the line ... in 10 years time when I tell you exactly what happened, the British driver said. It will be an interesting read. Wholesale Ducks Jerseys . The phone hearing is scheduled for 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt.

LUCIE, Fla. http://www.cheapducksjerseyschina.com/hampus-lindholm-jersey/ . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records.Leicester Tigers Director of Rugby Richard Cockerill has praised the impact Claudio Ranieris Foxes have had on the city after winning the clubs first top-flight trophy in its 132-year history. It was party-central in Leicester on Monday night as Leicester City were named Premier League champions and local lad Mark Selby won his second world snooker championship.On top of that, Leicester Riders won the British Basketball League title last month, and even Leicestershires cricketers - the whipping boys of the county game for the last few years - are flying high in Division Two.  Cockerill - whose Tigers have reached the Aviva Premiership play-offs - has been impressed by the Foxes all season, crediting the spirit among the squad for their historic Premier League title victory and he thinks it has been a great sporting year for the whole city of Leicester.Unbelievable. A fantastic start to the season, everybody thought they would drop off and theyve kept going to the big teams and beating them and they have a fantastic away record, Cockerill told Sky Sports News HQ.You go and watch them play and you can see the spirit and the energy and the commitment for each other. The supporters have been outstanding. My two daughters have to go to school dressed in blue, so that was an interesting discussion around the breakfast table. Leicester boss Richard Cockerill is thrilled with Leicester Citys success Its been fantastic for the city - the buzz around the place with the football is just unbelievable.The former England international believes Ranieris side have demonstrated the spirit of the city with their performances throughout the season and says they have put Leicester on the map. You only come herre to play sport or visit the Cathedral, so its fantastic for the city and we wont have to explain where Leicester is any more because the world knows where it is now, he added. Josh Manson Jersey. From the football perspective theres not many local lads in that side but clearly theyve bought in to what the citys about the supporters have got behind it.City were unable to win the league at Old Trafford on Sunday when they drew 1-1 with Manchester United, but became champions on Monday night after Tottenham were held to a 2-2 draw by Chelsea.In some ways I was sort of hoping theyd have to win against Everton at the weekend and have the grand finale at home but they can now have that celebration all together, said Cockerill. Leicester City players celebrate winning the Premier League title during a training session at their Belvoir Drive training ground I think it just shows that sport is special and its not just money that buys success. It helps, but I think that the romance of a team that can come from where they have come from - their starting team cost £23m - compared to Man Citys which is £280m or something.I think we are under a bit of pressure to deliver now as well so if we can do the same with the Premiership thatll be nice and maybe wed follow them round in an open top bus rather than be at the front.Leicester host Everton this Saturday where they will play for the first time as Premier League Champions, live on Sky Sports 1.

PARIS -- Le Monde newspaper said it obtained documents showing that a former IAAF official received two payments totaling about $3. Thomas Steen Jersey .5 million from Qatari investors before the vote for the 2017 athletics world championships.The newspaper claimed Friday that two payments from Oryx Qatar Sports Investments (QSI), an investment fund linked to the Qatari government, were made to Pamodzi Sports Marketing in October and November 2011, days before the vote.Pamodzi is held by Papa Massata Diack, a former marketing consultant at the IAAF who has been banned for allegations of extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Russian marathon runner to avoid a doping ban before the 2012 Olympics.Qatar eventually lost out to London but was later awarded the 2019 worlds.Papa Massata Diack is the son of former IAAF president Lamine Diack. Interpol has issued a global notice for his arrest in connection with a separate French corruption investigation that also implicates his father.According to Le Monde, which claims the documents were gathered by U.S tax authorities, a bank transfer of nearly $3 million was made to Pamodzi on Oct. 13, 2011, with another nearing $500,000 sent on Nov. 7, four days before London won the vote.In an email to The Associated Press, the IAAF declined to comment since the case is currently being investigated.Papa Massata Diack is also at the center of a French investigation into possible corruption in the bidding for the 2016 and 2020 Olympics. Christian Dvorak Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back.

Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska overpowered Fresno State in the second half and won its opener in the easy fashion that was expected.The lasting memory of Saturday nights 43-10 win will be how everyone inside Memorial Stadium came together to remember the Cornhuskers fallen punter, Sam Foltz, who died in a July car crash.The Huskers draped Foltzs No. 27 jersey at the end of their bench, and after they went three-and-out on their first possession, they lined up with 10 players and no punter.The crowd stood and responded with loud cheers and applause as the play clock wound down, with Fresno States players joining them in the salute. When Nebraska was flagged for delay of game after the play clock expired, Fresno State declined the penalty.It was an incredible feeling, knowing how much he meant to the team and the community and all the fans out there, quarterback Tommy Armstrong said. It touched my heart a bit, just looking out there.Fresno State coach Tim DeRuyter was told beforehand that the Huskers would line up without a punter, and he said there was no question that the penalty would be declined.If we cant teach our guys something classy like that, whats college for? he said.Armstrong Jr. ran for two touchdowns and threw a perfect deep ball to Alonzo Moore for another as Nebraska took control of the game and gave Mike Riley his 100th win as a college coach.The Huskers pounded away at the Bulldogs with runs on 51 of their 64 plays, and Devine Ozigbo ran for a career-high 103 yards and two touchdowns. The biggest of Armstrongs few passes came two plays after Kieron Williams first career interception, when Moore beat his man to catch in stride a 57-yard TD early in the fourth quarter.When we run it that well, we open up a lot for the receivers, Armstrong said. When we get a chance to throw it, we have to complete them.Fresno States Chason Virgil, who missed the last nine games in 2015 with a broken clavicle, completed his first five passes and 11 of his first 14. The Bulldogs got a scare when he banged up his left shoulder late in the first half after being driven out of bounds by linebacker Luke Gifford, who was ejected for targeting.Virgil returned to starrt the third quarter but didnt get much done the rest of the night against a Nebraska defense that got better as the game went on. Jordan Martinook Jersey. I thought our guys went toe-to-toe with them for a pretty good bit, and then they broke our will in the fourth quarter, DeRuyter said.THE TAKEAWAYFresno State: The Bulldogs, coming off a 3-9 season, hung with Nebraska for a half and should be improved if they can keep Virgil healthy for new offensive coordinator Eric Kiesau. They capitalized on Robert Stanleys blocked punt and a couple Nebraska penalties, and that allowed them to keep it close until the third quarter. First-year defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward can take consolation in that its unlikely his unit will go against another opponent that runs the ball as well as Nebraska.Nebraska: The game plan was perfect against an opponent that ranked 117th against the run last year, and once Armstrong and the Huskers got going in the second half, they were nearly unstoppable. Nebraska, which finished with 292 yards on the ground, ran on 20 of its first 21 plays, and Riley made good on his plan to get Armstrong more carries.Ozigbo and Terrell Newby formed a strong 1-2 combination, and freshman Tre Bryant showed up well when he got his chances late in the game. All that was pleasing to Riley. What upset him were three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in addition to an ejection for targeting for a third straight game.There was some good football, when you rush for that many yards, but I have mixed emotions about this game, Riley said. Lots of things have to change.UP NEXT:Fresno State: The Bulldogs go from playing in one of the cathedrals of college football to hosting Sacramento State. DeRuyters Fresno teams have beaten Football Championship Subdivision opponents by an average of 26 points.Nebraska: The Huskers host Wyoming, coached by former Nebraska assistant Craig Bohl. This is no gimme. The last time the teams met, in 2013 in Lincoln, the Cowboys scored a couple late touchdowns and put a scare into the Huskers before losing 37-34.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Now more than ever, Carolina Panthers players are being forced to confront the omnipresent dangers of repeated hits to the head amid a rash of concussions to key players.Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly was carted off the field with a head injury last Thursday night, a disturbing sight as the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year stared blankly ahead as he wept uncontrollably while heading to the locker room. It was a scary moment some teammates -- as well players across the league -- likely wont soon forget.Left tackle Michael Oher still hasnt returned to practice nearly two months after sustaining a concussion. Even reigning league MVP Cam Newton, with his seemingly invincible 6-foot-5, 245-pound muscular physique, missed a game with a concussion and later talked about his concern over long-term effects.In all, seven Carolina players have found their way into the leagues concussion protocol since the start of the preseason.When you see it, it always comes across your mind that it could be you one day, Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short said.Short acknowledged the violent nature of some hits is a scary to watch.Its like a car crash, Short said. You never know what the outcome may be. You hope for the best and pray that those guys come back.Kuechly did not practice Monday and Panthers coach Ron Rivera offered no update on his status, just reiterating he remains in the NFLs concussion protocol. He said there is no timetable for Kuechlys return.Still, the Panthers (4-6) must forge on and play six more games without their top defensive player beginning Sunday at Oakland.One of those trying to move on is safety Colin Jones.He missed Carolinas 23-20 win Thursday night over New Orleans with a concussion -- the second of his career.We are trained since we are young to fight through anything... but with a head injury its just a different situation because 70 percent isnt good enough, Jones said. Because if there are any side effects at all then you can just really hurt yourself down the roaad if you come back too quick. Wholesale Blue Jackets Jerseys. But Jones said when he does get back on the field it wont change the way he plays.Hes not alone.Cornerback Leonard Johnson said Monday he was taken the hospital after the Saints game when he had trouble breathing after taking a cleat to his sternum. He said you cant go into a game thinking about not getting hurt.I dont think it changes the way you play, it just brings more awareness to the game from a physicality standpoint, Johnson said of concussions. Once you roll the ball out there you forget all about the injuries and the possibility that (a concussion) can happen. When people focus more on those things they play timid and thats when injuries do happen.Kuechly missed 34 days and three games last season with a concussion.Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott said A.J. Klein, another player who missed Thursday nights game with a concussion, would start if Kuechly cant play. Klein returned to practice Monday, but he also remains in the concussion protocol. Third-string linebacker David Mayo would make his first NFL start if Kuechly and Klein cant start.McDermott said while he has plenty of confidence in Kleins ability, losing Kuechly would be difficult because hes the glue on defense that connects the defensive front end to the secondary.Lets face it, you are never going to be able to replace a player of Lukes caliber, McDermott said. I wouldnt expect anybody in this locker room to do that. You want those guys to do what they do, do what they did in college and up to this point, and we will be fine.Panthers safety Coleman said he believes Kuechly is in good hands with the teams medical staff.Ultimately, all I care about is Luke the person, not Luke the player, Coleman said. I want him to be as healthy as he can be, not just playing for us, but later in life.---AP NFL website: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Cheap NFL Hoodies Black China NFL Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2019 ' ' ' 
RIO DE JANEIRO -- Nijat Rahimov of Kazakhstan was a surprise gold medalist in weightlifting on Wednesday, but immediately faced questions over doping. Cheap Packers Hoodies Store .Rahimov, who only returned from a doping ban last year, and the rest of Kazakhstans team had almost been excluded from the Rio Olympics entirely after repeated failures in retests of doping samples from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. The country stands to lose five gold medals from those games.Kazakhstan was allowed to compete because those doping cases were not fully processed in time for the games, the International Weightlifting Federation has said.In a sport in crisis over doping, Rahimovs world record-breaking performance in the 77-kilogram class Wednesday is unlikely to silence the critics, not least bronze medalist Mohamed Mahmoud of Egypt, who said he found Rahimovs dramatic improvement since his ban suspicious.Rahimov was banned for two years in 2013 after failing a test while competing for Azerbaijan, another country with longstanding doping problems. Rahimov was one of 18 Azerbaijanis busted that year. Rahimov was born in Azerbaijan and recently moved to Kazakhstan to compete on its weightlifting team.Chinas Lyu Xiaojun had been the favorite to retain the gold he won in 2012 and began to celebrate prematurely after his final lift, stripping to the waist in front of the crowd. But Rahimov had other plans, audaciously moving up 12 kilograms for his next attempt at the clean and jerk to 214kg, breaking a 15-year-old world record.That gave him a total of 379kg from the two phases of the competition, level with Lyu but enough for Rahimov to take gold because he had weighed in lower.He celebrated by crouching into a pose of prayer before being tackled in a bearhug by his coach, while Lyu gave a wry smile for the cameras.Rahimov repeatedly dodged questions about his doping past after the win, crediting religion and a tough training schedule for his success.When normal people were asleep, we were training. When the snow was deep -- you know how it is in Kazakhstan -- we went out for training at 11 or 12 (at night), he said. He added he had treated Kazakhstans possible ban from Rio Olympic weightlifting as a rumor and was not distracted from training.Bronze went to Egyptian Mohamed Mahmoud on 361. Mahmoud said the talk of drugs could not be avoided in light of Rahimovs win.Maybe after some doping controls, some things will change, Mahmoud said. While improvements like Rahimovs can be the result of good training and nutrition, Mahmoud said, in a very short time it cannot happen like that.Wednesdays doping controversy came as weightlifting already faced a storm of doping scandals.On Tuesday, Taiwanese gold medal contender Lin Tzu-Chi was withdrawn from competition hours before her event for what her team called abnormalities in a drug test, and the Polish weightlifting federations head has resigned after what he said were two more failed tests, one of a lifter who was due to compete in Rio.Earlier Wednesday, Chinas Xiang Yanmei took gold in the womens 69-kilogram class despite having taken a blow to the head when she dropped the bar halfway through the competition.Xiang briefly appeared dazed and admitted to some pain but was fully alert as she closed out Chinas fourth weightlifting gold of the Rio Olympics with 116kg in the snatch and 145 in the clean and jerk for a total of 261.I got hurt a little bit and I feel hurt when I nod my head, she said. I didnt think about it when lifting weights. Xiang said she had not seen a doctor.She added Olympic gold to the world titles she won in 2013 and 2015, and continued a resurgence for Chinas lifters in Rio following a slow start.The silver medal went to Kazakhstans Zhazira Zhapparkul with a 259 total, while Egypts Sara Ahmed won bronze with 255 kilos, becoming the first woman from an Arab country to win an Olympic weightlifting medal. Jaire Alexander Hoodie . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead.

The Wanderers new chief executive, in control after the Sports Shield consortium finally took control from Eddie Davies in midweek, saw Liam Trotter put the Trotters ahead midway through the first half.But after the break Jordan Hugills headed equaliser and Vermijl, nine minutes after joining the action, completed a second-half comeback for Simon Graysons side. Certainly, since the drabbest of goalless draws at Deepdale last October, the fortunes of the Lancashire neighbours have taken contrasting routes. Wanderers have won only three Championship games since then while North Ends rise up the table has been powered by 10 victories.A run of three games without victory prior to this match had probably done for Prestons play-off chances but they kicked off 23 points better off than rivals heading for League One.Preston were almost in front after just 15 seconds with a Calum Woods effort from Adam Reachs cross.

TORONTO -- Another near-perfect performance from Ricky Ray ensured the Toronto Argonauts impressive start to the CFL season stayed on course. Kyle Brodziak Jersey . The veteran quarterback threw three touchdowns and tied a club record for consecutive completions Sunday as the red-hot Argonauts won their fourth straight, 36-33 over the Edmonton Eskimos. Ray, who finished the night 30-of-35 for 413 yards, including TD passes to Jason Barnes, John Chiles and Chad Owens against his former team, says his comfort level is a big reason why the numbers have been so staggering. "It feels like youre just seeing everything and trusting everything," said Ray, who has thrown for 851 yards and eight touchdowns in Torontos last three victories. "Theres no second guessing or double clutching or worrying about anything. Youre just seeing it and throwing it. Thats a good feeling." Rays 17 straight completions in the first half tied the Argonauts club record set by Mike Rae in 1975 in a game against the Montreal Alouettes. "When you look at each play individually you feel like you should be able to complete every one," Ray added. "Were just in a good stretch right now. Theres going to be some games where Im not going to complete this many passes." Ray came over to Toronto in a lopsided trade with Edmonton prior to last season and was instrumental in helping the Argonauts with the 100th Grey Cup on home turf at Rogers Centre. "Ive always thought Ricky was one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the league," Toronto head coach Scott Milanovich said. "Hes in a system that fits him now with playmakers at receiver and at tailback and now hes a year into it. "At this point hes just hot. Hes always going to be good but at this point hes just red-hot and things are taking off for him." Despite the victory, Milanovich was not happy with his teams performance in the fourth quarter as the Eskimos cut the Toronto lead late. "Those guys are not satisfied and clearly we are not happy but Ill never apologize for a win," he said. "They played well. We give them credit but we had a chance to put that thing away and we didnt do it." Backup quarterback Zach Collaros also threw a TD for Toronto (5-2), which is on its longest winning streak since 2007 and leads the East Division by four points over the second place Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Eskimos (1-6), meanwhile, sit last in the West and have lost their last three games by a combined nine points. "The loss is very disappointing. Devastating actually," Edmonton head coach Kavis Reed said. "Its a lot about details. A lot of things were not doing well ... Im not doing well. "I have to look at myself in the mirror as to how things have turned out." Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly was 35-of-46 for 511 yards and three touchdowns as the Eskimos lost their fifth consecutive game. "People can talk about the numbers but they should have been higher," Reilly said. "I missed a couple of throws. Drives stalled. We didnt play the entire four quarters." Grant Shaw added four field goals for Edmonton, which was without injured star linebacker and reigning CFL defensive player of the year J.C. Sherritt. "If I throw for 100 yards and win Im happy," Reilly said. "It doesnt matter how much it is if we lose." Leading 17-16 at the half, Toronto stopped Edmonton on its first drive of the third quarter and stretched its advantage to eight when Ray hit a wide open Chiles with a 31-yard touchdown pass. "Its crazy. (Rays) accuracy is just amazing," said Chiles, who finished with five catches for 135 yards. "The way hes spreading the ball and getting it to all the different receivers, I think hes doing a great job." Edmonton conceded a safety for a 26-16 Argonauts lead with just under five minutes to go in the quarter and Toronto followed that up with an efficient four-play, 64-yard drive that was capped off by a six-yard TD pass from Ray to Owens that made the score 33-16. Shaw missed a 28-yard field goal for a single point with just over ten minutes to go in the fourth before Reilly connected with Shamawd Chambers on a 22-yard touchdown pass with about five minutes left on the clock to make it 33-23. After Edmontons two-point conversion failed, the Eskimos got the ball back and Shaw kicked a 30-yard field goal to cut Torontos lead to seven with two minutes to play. The Argonauts took the ball on their 35 and Ray found Chiles on a 49-yard pass play to set up Noel Prefontaines 26-yard field goal, his second of the night, that effectively killed off Edmontons hopes. Reilly then hooked up with Fred Stamps, who finished with six catches for 172 yards, with one second left on the clock. Trailing the Eskimos 9-7 in the second quarter, Ray hit Barnes on an eight-yard touchdown pass. Edmonton retook the lead at 16-14 with an impressive six-play, 105-yard drive that spanned just 1:58 and included completions by Reilly of 38 and 45 yards to Stamps and culminated in a five-yard strike to Cary Koch. The see-saw quarter swung back in favour of the Argonauts with a 20-yard late field goal by Prefontaine to make the score 17-16 at the half. Toronto could have had more but Ray missed a wide open Dontrelle Inman in the end zone to snap his consecutive completions streak at 17. Toronto took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on third-down gamble when Collaros, who often enters the game on short yardage plays, faked a pitch before dumping the ball off to Alexander Robinson. He rumbled 45 yards for his second touchdown of the season. Edmonton got the score to 7-6 on a pair of Shaw field goals from 16 and 38 yards before the Eskimos kicker gave his team a two-point edge with his third boot of the night, this time from 40 yards early in the second quarter. Notes: Owens finished with nine catches for 102 yards. ... Edmonton won both regular season meetings between the teams last season. The Argonauts beat the Eskimos in the East semifinal. ...

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Alabama volleyball needed just three sets to dispatch South Carolina Friday night at the Carolina Volleyball Center, sweeping the Gamecocks by set scores of 28-26, 25-19 and 25-22.Alabama (18-11, 7-9 SEC) has now won six-straight matches over South Carolina (18-9, 6-9 SEC), stretching back to the 2013 season. The two teams went to extra points in the first set as Alabama came back to take the lead in the late stages of the frame before winning a comparatively decisive second set, 25-19. A late push by the Gamecocks in set three added some drama in the final points but Alabama ultimately persevered to win 25-22.Krystal Rivers led all players with 19 kills, her second-highest total in a three-set match this season, which puts her just seven shy of tying the Alabama career kills record with two matches remaining in the regular season. Rivers also earned four of the teams seven service aces, tying a season-high. Shannon Mikesky and Alexa Tomlak split setting duties, earning 18 and 12, respectively, while Abolanle Onipede went error-free with a .385 hitting percentage, her second-highest total in SEC play.The Gamecocks scored the first two points of the opening set and maintained a relatively slim lead until scoring three-straight points to slightly extend its lead to 14-10. South Carolina led by five at Alabamas first timeout, 16-11, but a late 3-1 run by the Tide cut the deficit to three points, 21-18, as South Carolina was forced to take a timeout following a block on the right side by Leah Lawrence and Rivers. Alabama continued to fight back and eventually tie the set at 23-23 on a kill up the middle by Hayley McSparin as South Carolina burned its final timeout. A Gamecock block on the next point gave the home team set point, 24-23, and the Tide took its final timeout before a USC attack error tied it back at 24-24. Joe Mullen Jersey.

Alabama responded with four-straight points, including a pair of aces by Rivers, to lead 13-11 and force the Gamecocks to take its first timeout. Leading by two later, 17-15, a kill by Lawrence made it a three-point game as South Carolina took its second timeout. Leading 18-16 two points later, Alabama closed out the set on a 7-3 run to win, 25-19, and take a 2-0 match lead.Alabama got off to a hot start in set three, scoring four unanswered points to start the frame and pulling ahead 7-1 before South Carolina was forced to burn an early timeout. The Tide led by five at the halfway mark, 13-8, and a 3-1 run extended the lead to seven points at the Gamecocks second timeout, 16-9. South Carolina started to trim the deficit with a 4-2 run and Alabama looked to slow the momentum with its first timeout of the set, leading 18-13. Alabama reached match point at 24-20 but South Carolina kept the match alive with back-to-back points as the Tide regrouped with a timeout leading 24-22. Rivers finished the match on the next point with her team-leading 19th kill of the night to give Alabama the 25-22 win and the three-set match victory.Next up, Alabama plays its final home match of the season on Wednesday, Nov. 23 against Ole Miss (15-13, 4-11 SEC).

Nagpur, December 2015. In a match that will be remembered for the havoc the spinners caused, South Africas fast bowlers were hurting India with reverse swing. Morne Morkel had swung one in to bowl Ajinkya Rahane, and swung one away to nick off Virat Kohli.At 116 for 5, in walked Wriddhiman Saha. He got off the mark on the fourth ball he faced, edging Morkel wide of gully. Then Kagiso Rabada, playing only his third Test match, replaced Morkel and showed his precocious gifts included an ability to manipulate the old-ball. He curled three balls away from Saha, all on a good length, and beat him three times in a row. Sahas bat was swishing at the ball, its angle far from perpendicular, and his front foot, skating rather than stepping forward, was catching up after the ball had passed.Saha would be beaten repeatedly by Rabada that afternoon, but at the end of it, aided partially by the fortune of missing rather than edging all those balls, he would become the only Indian batsman to play an innings lasting over 100 balls in the match. It wasnt news to anyone that Saha could fight for his runs. He had done it many times before, whether it was at the same ground on a Test debut made in strange circumstances five years previously, or in Adelaide, Sydney, Galle or Colombo. But there had always seemed something homespun, something not wholly secure about his technique.He seemed to have, all at once, a short front-foot stride, a tendency to try and compensate by reaching for the ball, a dominant bottom hand that caused his bat to trace unusual arcs while driving, and a tendency to play across his front pad. And here he was, playing another innings of grit and smarts making up for an iffy technique. He was playing for a team that was beginning to play five specialist bowlers at every opportunity, as the wicketkeeper-batsman bridging a short top-order and a long lower-order. His wicketkeeping was often a joy to watch, but was his batting good enough to hold down a long-term place in a side packed with bowlers?On Monday afternoon Saha walked in with India 126 for 5 and R Ashwin at the other end. At the start of the series, Ashwin had been promoted to No. 6, one place above Saha in the batting order. It was a statement of confidence in Ashwins batting, but it could also be read as a statement of mistrust in Sahas.None of that really mattered now. India were desperate for a partnership. Their scoring rate had dwindled considerably, but there was no quick-fix. Saha, at any rate, wasnt looking for one. He got off the mark on the fifth ball he faced, and waited until his 33rd ball to score his next runs. In that early phase of his innings, Jason Holder - against whom he scored no runs off 22 balls - did not bowl outside off stump as he has mostly done through this series but on and around it, his line a constant but his length never predictable, making Saha play as much as possible.There was one iffy leave that could have resulted in a wicket another day - the ball came in to hit his front pad, and ball-tracking suggested it may have hit off stump - but Saha was otherwise secure, the most impressive feature of his play the lateness - and closeness to his body - of his defensive play, particularly against the odd ball that jumped at him. Adidas Josh Anderson Jersey. Early on the second day, Saha produced a superlative example of this against Shannon Gabriel. The ball reared uncomfortably at him, but he seemed to have a little extra moment to adjust, get on top of the bounce and drop his bottom hand upon impact. It rolled away harmlessly into the leg side.By now, he had gone past fifty, and was in tune with the pace - slower than day one - and bounce, still generous, of the pitch. By now, he was in the third distinct phase of his innings.The first two phases had come on the first afternoon, fetching him 12 runs in his first 71 balls and 34 off his next 51, a bulk of them against the second new ball. His last two scoring shots before stumps had been boundaries, a flick and a straight drive off successive Holder deliveries. Now, at the start of day two, Saha was retrenching; he scored only 10 runs off the first 42 balls of the day, and India only 21 in their first 13 overs. West Indies, as they had done ever since the second Test at Sabina Park, were bowling with control, with discipline.They had an ally in the slowest outfield in a series of slow outfields. Ashwin, who had scored 48.79% of his Test runs in boundaries before this match, had only hit four fours in 227 balls. He was batting on 83, and Saha on 56. At that point came the first drinks break of the day, and perhaps India decided then that Saha would shift gears.Off only the second ball he faced after drinks, Saha steered a wide, full ball from Alzarri Joseph, a ball he may have left alone before the break, to the point boundary. A couple of overs later, he slog-swept Roston Chase over midwicket. Chase had bowled - and been allowed to bowl, by Indias situation - with no one on the square boundary on the leg side for most of his 24 overs till that point. The partnership had taken India out of trouble and perhaps to parity, and this shot seemed to signal a shift in the balance of play.Saha has made a number of attacking hundreds in the Ranji Trophy, but he hadnt, before this, had any real opportunity to showcase his range of shots in Test cricket. Now he had his chance. He became willing to whip balls off the stumps and into the leg side, even if it meant meeting them with a closed bat-face. One such whip, off Miguel Cummins, went over the fielder at square leg and ran away for four. Then came a pull, and a couple of drives through the off side, one along the ground, squarer off Gabriel, and the other in the air, straighter off Kraigg Brathwaites offspin.As Ashwin inched towards his hundred at the other end, Saha threatened to overtake him. At lunch, they were batting on 99 and 93 respectively.Ashwin got to the mark first, doing so for the fourth time in his career. Then it was Sahas turn, and this was his first time. He drove Chase against the turn, ran two, and paused, kneeling by the pitch, to undo his helmet strap, before rising to take it all in. He was 31 years and 291 days old, playing the 14th Test match of a six-and-a-half-year career mostly spent as an understudy to a wicketkeeping great. He was here now, this was his moment.
