Lines courtesy of Westgate SuperBook as of Wednesday morning.No. 2 Florida State Seminoles (-2.5) at No. 10 Louisville CardinalsNoon, ABCThis will be the toughest road test of the year for Florida State. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has accounted for 13 touchdowns in just two games, but the Cardinals first two opponents, Charlotte and Syracuse, rank among the weakest on defense in the FBS. Cyber Monday Saints Jerseys . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom.

Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital. 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. All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has flatly refuted a Wallabies allegation he had a secret meeting with referee Romain Poite before the second Bledisloe Cup Test.The Australian Rugby Union filed an official complaint after Saturdays 29-9 defeat in Wellington, claiming Hansen and Frenchman Poite had met in contravention of World Rugby regulations.Hansen said on Sunday he never met with Poite but did catch up with assistant referee Jaco Peyper, who controlled last weeks first Test in Sydney, at the South Africans request to review several incidents from that match.Im a firm believer that were here to support the referees and help them. Its a difficult game to ref so why wouldnt you have the meeting? Hansen said.(But) we certainly didnt have one with Romain Poite.We dont meet the ref, havent done for about 18 to 24 months, because its just a waste of time.Under World Rugby rules, coaches are permitted to meet with referees before a match, but only if there are representatives from both teams present, or if one side is invited and declines the opportunity.Hansen said it was quite sad the allegation was made aand joked he was shattered by the implications. Womens Saints Jerseys. Upon arrival back in Sydney, coach Michael Cheika tried to play down the controversy as a footnote for the Wallabies.Its something we want to be heard on and I think for Australia weve got to get ourselves heard on and off the field as much as we can to try and get ourselves more organised, he said.Cheika also blasted Poite post-match for ignoring approaches from captain Stephen Moore to discuss in-game rulings, even claiming referees have preconceived ideas about Australian players.But Hansen - who noted Cheika didnt complain about the refereeing in last years World Cup quarter-final against Scotland, which was decided by a controversial late penalty - suggested that was their fault.I know he was upset the ref didnt talk to Stephen but if I was in their shoes Id be wanting to ask myself what is it were doing thats making him not want to talk to Stephen? Hansen said.The best captains in the world pick their moments.

LAS VEGAS -- Carmelo Anthony wants more than a better U. Cheap Panthers Jerseys .S. basketball team heading into the Olympics.He wants a better U.S.Anthony called for an end to gun violence, the killing of African-Americans and the targeting of police, and said his quest for that is bigger than his desire for what would be a record third gold medal.Its unfortunate, its sad, Anthony said Monday. You cant really put into words whats going on throughout the whole country, throughout the whole world. For us as a country, we have to stand united. We have to come together.The New York Knicks forward has spoken out more and more lately, challenging fellow athletes to do the same. He has taken his message to Instagram and the ESPYS, and if he wants another forum, there arent too many bigger spotlights than the Olympics.Will he take his message all the way to the medal podium?We always say that the timing could not have been any better for us as a country, having a chance to come together and being united, Anthony said, then go over there on the biggest stage you can possibly play on and have that voice and represent something that is bigger than us as players.The U.S. team may not wait for Rio. Details are still being finalized, but Anthony, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski have hinted at plans for some kind of community forum in conjunction with the league when the Americans head to Los Angeles following camp to play an exhibition game against China.I think it can be great. When we talk about united, thats what we keep talking about, forward Draymond Green said. Obviously we saw a lot of guys speak out about guys getting in front of this thing, and coming together right now with the opportunity to possibly win a gold medal and try to lead the charge with whats going on in the country. I think it could be really special.Anthony isnt just a celebrity posting politically correct messages on his social media accounts. He marched with protesters in his hometown of Baltimore last year following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody and took part with other NBA players in an ad campaign to stop gun violence.In recent weeks alone, there were black men killed by police in Louisiana and Minnesota, followed by attacks on officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Anthony was moved to write a lengthy Instagram post and later a plea for involvement in a piece for The Guardian, in which he talked about the opportunity his teammates have to make a stand during the Olympics.Im kind of a guy who likes speaking behind closed doors. I dont like taking credit, Anthony said. I really like talking to guys one-on-one. Any of my colleagues will tell you Ive had that voice. They always came to me for that type of advice. But now is an opportunity to get it out there. Its a very sensitive time for us.He wasnt planning on going to the ESPYS until a conversation with close friends and former Olympic teammates LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul, leading to their powerful opening to the awards show last week.What they did at the ESPYS was unbelievable, and we applaud these guys, Krzyzewski said.Those players were set for life financially two contracts ago, let alone what theyll sign for this summer and next. Some members of this Olympic team are still waiting on their big endorsement dollars, and speaking out about a cause can come with a cost.Even Michael Jordan was famously unwilling to take those stances as a player, but Anthony -- who endorses Jordans sneaker line -- wont hear that excuse anymore.At the end of the day, the tragedies thats happening, it affects people, Anthony said. Were athletes, but at the end of the day were human beings, so were affected by all of that. We have families that are in some of those cities.Twelve years ago, Anthony appeared in a video titled Stop Snitching in which alleged drug dealers talk about what happens to people who cooperate with the police.Anthony says he has since grown to understand the weight of his words and actions.I look back at those moments, I can fortunately enough, I can sit back and laugh at those situations because it made me grow up as a person and as a man, Anthony said. It made me grow up and realize ... I was an individual, how powerful my voice and presence is. It is something I didnt know at 19, 20, 21 years old. You just dont know those things. Youre going through life like nothing can affect you.As you get older, the plan is to grow and mature. For me, it was a matter of being knowledgeable and having the wisdom and understanding my situation of where Im at, being a professional athlete and what comes along with that.Anthony said that he doesnt have any solutions for the current problems and isnt sure anyone else does. But he feels he has helped spark conversation in recent weeks, and his teammates say they need to continue it.Thats our job, guard DeMar DeRozan said. A lot of people look up to us. Were an inspiration to a lot of people. So for us to share a positive light and try to make things better, as a collective group of guys, thats our duty to do that.Information from ESPNs Ian Begley and The Associated Press was used in this report.

St. Marys was off and running toward an impressive road win.Hermanson scored 16 points -- most of them from the perimeter -- and Landale scored most of his 15 off moves to the basket on Saturday. The outside-inside attack swept No. 17 St. Marys to a 61-57 victory over Dayton in the Gaels first road game.The Gaels (3-0) led the whole way, pulling ahead by 20 points midway through the second half and holding off a late Dayton rally. Until the closing minutes, they felt very relaxed.Coming out to the big start not only got the crowd out of it, but gave us confidence for the rest of the game, said Hermanson, who fouled out with 2:52 left. We started running our stuff and getting great shots and realizing we could almost get what we wanted. We were able to settle in once we had some success.Those last 3 minutes left them sweating one out.The Flyers (2-1) took advantage of the Gaels sloppiness -- 100 turnovers in the second half -- and went on a 14-1 run. Charles Cookes jumper cut it to 59-57 with 25 seconds left. Emmett Naar hit two free throws with 7.2 seconds left to clinch it.We knew the storm was coming, coach Randy Bennett said. We weathered most of it.Cooke scored 19 for the Flyers , who are 1-2 against Top 25 teams over the last two seasons.I told them Im not most disappointed with the loss, but with how we lost, coach Archie Miller said.

Landale and Hermanson scored all of St. Marys points as the Gaels pulled ahead 19-11. The Gaels led by as many as 14 in the half.I dont know that anybody has answers against them, Miller said.

The Flyers have won 36 of their last 40 home games.Heck of a win, Bennett said. We know what Dayton is. We had to play well, and we did until the last 3 minutes. Playing a Top 25 (caliber) team on their court, out of your region -- those are tough games to get.Dayton: The Flyers have been on the verge of entering the poll, but the home-court loss will put that on hold for now.BIG PICTURESt. Marys: The Gaels came into the game third in Division I in field-goal percentage at 58.5 percent and showed their patience on the road.

If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Tony Bradley Jr. knows the opportunity awaiting him this fall at North Carolina.The freshman big man will suit up for a fast-paced offense that looks to get the ball inside. And the Tar Heels could use some help up front after losing a pair of big men -- including Associated Press first-team All-American Brice Johnson -- from an NCAA finalist.Im not trying to say Im coming in to score, Bradley said in an interview with The Associated Press. I dont know what to expect. Im just going to come in and work my hardest and see where it goes from there.The 6-foot-10, 235-pound McDonalds All-American from Bartow, Florida joins a team looking to replace Johnsons nightly double-doubles and at-the-rim finishes. With Johnson and reserve Joel James gone, the Tar Heels are left with two experienced big men in seniors Kennedy Meeks (6-10, 260) and Isaiah Hicks (6-9, 235).The other members of UNCs recruiting class -- scholarship guards Seventh Woods from Columbia, South Carolina and Brandon Robinson from Lithia Springs, Georgia, along with preferred walk-on Shea Rush of Kansas City, Missouri -- bolster a deep perimeter led by returning double-digit scorers Joel Berry II and Justin Jackson.That leaves Bradley in line for a potentially significant role, especially with Hicks having a history of foul trouble.Its just help keep up the production, Bradley said of his focus. Thats my goal.Terrence McGriff, Bradleys high school coach, describes Bradley as a big, wide body with good hands. He also said Bradleys passing and decision-making was good enough that he also used him as a halfcourt distributor from the top of the key.All those big guys Caroliina has had since Roy (Williams) has been there, he fits right in with the way they want to play perfectly, McGriff said. Dolphins Jerseys Online. Bradleys father, Tony Sr., said his sons drive to play college basketball took off after attending the McDonalds All-American Game as a youngster. He told his father he wanted to play in that game, then kept a program and T-shirt from the game as a reminder as he worked on his game and with a trainer to get stronger.The result: Bradley entered college as Scout.coms No. 26 national prospect.He kept working and I guess that motivated him, Tony Bradley Sr. said. When he got that call that he made McDonalds All-American, he pulled the program out and he pulled the shirt out. He said, `See Dad, my name will be on there. I said, `Its all about work. You worked to get it. You earned that.Rising junior Theo Pinson has seen the benefits of Bradleys work in pickup games since the freshman arrived on campus last month, adding that Bradley was unafraid to call for the ball inside.I think its very important that he gets confidence early, Pinson said.

The Brooklyn Nets are taking a flier on former No. Red Nike Tri Fusion Run . 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett.The team announced the signing Thursday evening. Terms werent disclosed, but sources confirmed that Bennett received a two-year contract worth the veterans minimum.We have been excited to watch Anthonys progress this summer with his national team, and look forward to the opportunity of having (head coach) Kenny [Atkinson] and his staff work with him to continue his development, Nets general manager Sean Marks said in a statement.The Nets worked out Bennett, who has gotten into much better shape, at a veteran minicamp early in the offseason and came away impressed.Bennett was a member of the Canadian national team that lost to France in the finals of the recent Olympic qualifying tournament in the Philippines. Bennett averaged 6.8 points and 5 rebounds in four games.Bennett, 23, taken with the top pick by Cleveland in 2013, has never lived up to his draft status. In parts of three seasons with the Cavaliers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto Raptors, he holds career averages of 4.2 points and 3.1 rebounds.But Brooklyn, which is coming off a 21-61 season and does not have total control over its own first-round pick until 2019, needs to find diamonds in the rough.The Nets are hoping that Atkinsons strong track record for developing players translates into helping Bennett turn around his career.The Nets also reached a one-year contract agreement with veteran guard Randy Foye, a source confirmed.Foye, 32, appeared in 81 games last season with the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder. The Vertical earlier reported the deal.Brooklyn now has 15 players under contract.After their offer sheets to restricted free agents Allen Crabbe and Tyler Johnson were matched by Portland and Miami, respectively, the Nets signed Greivis Vasquez, Luis Scola, Joe Harris, Bennett and Foye to short-term deals, maintaining salary-cap flexibility in the process. Grey Nike Tri Fusion Run . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak.

ARLINGTON, Texas --?Dallas Cowboys?owner Jerry Jones has acknowledged speaking with the NFLs special counsel for domestic violence investigations, and rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott said he was interviewed by the league this season about an abuse claim made against him.Elliott said after Sunday nights 29-23 overtime victory over the Philadelphia Eagles that he was interviewed once by NFL investigators about six weeks ago. He characterized there being an ongoing investigation but said he didnt really know what was going on.Prosecutors in Ohio declined to press charges over the summer in a domestic violence case involving the fourth overall draft pick.All I can do is not worry about it, focus on this team and do whatever I can do to help these guys get wins, Elliott told The Associated Press after running 22 times for 96 yards and catching four passes for 52 yards against the Eagles.CBS Sports reported earlier Sunday, citing multiple unnamed sources, that Jones raised the topic of the investigation during league meetings in Houston about two weeks ago with Lisa Friel, a former New York prosecutor serving as special counsel. That report said they were within earshot of other league and team executives.Jones said after Sunday nights game that the two had a good discussion. He said the conversation might have gotten loud but said it was a situation where he had to talk over the music.Asked if the interaction was contentious, Jones responded with a laugh, Well, I dont know about that, but certainly, the volume of it had a lot to do with noise in there.In September, when Ohio officials decided not to file criminal chaarges, the Columbus city attorneys office cited conflicting and inconsistent information in evidence. White Nike Tri Fusion Run. A police report said Elliott, who played at Ohio State, denied allegations that he assaulted his girlfriend in July, causing bruises and abrasions.Three witnesses told police they didnt see Elliott assault the 20-year-old woman. Elliott said the woman got the bruises and abrasions in a bar fight.Asked if the Elliott investigation would have closure soon, Jones replied, I dont know that the NFL has a closure, has a situation where theyve cut it close, which could be a frailty of the system.He continued: As you know, in law, one of the things in the Constitution is that not only are you innocent before proven guilty, you get quick addressing and then you dont get it drawn out. It has certain time frames and has a lot of economic limitations. So we have to, in my mind, just make sure that we inject that in ... [what] we do in the NFL.Jones went on to say that because many issues within the league are so public, it complicates how they are ultimately handled and addressed.?Thats one of the challenges we have in dealing with these sensitive social issues, he said. Make no mistake about it, the NFL does not want to -- I guess I have to do my disclaimer, but obviously were not for bullying and were certainly, certainly, certainly not for the issue of domestic violence. That area there is one were having to get our hands around.ESPN staff writer Todd Archer contributed to this report.

Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Within a span of several days, members of the 2016 U.S. Olympic rugby team flew from Florida to their training center outside San Diego, then quickly flew on to Houston. They spent the night there before taking a red-eye down to Rio, where they arrived last week.A long journey, right? Yeah, well, it was considerably easier than the 1924 U.S. rugby teams odyssey to the Olympics in Paris 92 years ago.For one thing, the 1924 team had to raise its own funds for transportation to Europe and lodging in Paris because the U.S. Olympic Committee wouldnt pay. Then the team had to take a six-day, cross-country train ride from California to New York, which was followed by a nine-day cruise across the Atlantic Ocean. Once there, the players received so much hostility that they had to battle their way off the ship when it docked in France. They were jeered during and after their games and also had their money and possessions stolen from the locker room.And yet, they won the gold medal, defending the Olympic title they had won in 1920.Yes, the United States won Olympic golds in a sport that was barely played in America then -- or now -- which makes the Americans the defending gold medalists as rugby returns to the Olympics for the first time since the 1924 Miracle at Paris.Americas victory in rugby football at the VIII Olympiad represents what is probably the most surprising of all victories, secured in the face of severe handicaps and almost unsurmountable obstacles, 1924 U.S. rugby team manager Sam Goodman wrote afterward in a report to the U.S. Olympic Committee. This years victory is another object lesson to the world of the American youths athletic adaptability.And 92 years later, the 2016 U.S. team can draw inspiration from its forebears.It was guys coming together and given no chance at all, said 2016 U.S. rugby player Madison Hughes. They toured England before the Olympics. They were told, The French are going to kill you. But they came out against all odds, because rugby wasnt a huge sport in the U.S. There were a lot of guys who hadnt played a lot of rugby -- some hadnt played it at all -- and some playing other sports in the Olympics.It was just guys coming together and representing their country with pride and doing everything they could to bring home gold.Like now, rugby was not played by many people in the U.S. in the 1920s. The sport had grown somewhat in popularity earlier in the century, when deaths and injuries caused considerable concern over American football. But when football came roaring back, colleges dropped rugby during the 1910s. The U.S. sent a team in 1920 only because the California Rugby Union pushed hard for it.California was the place where rugby had peaked in popularity, and almost every player on the 1920 and 1924 U.S. Olympic teams lived there. Even so, there were a few team members who had never even played the game until a few months before the Games started.Regardless of whether they had rugby experience, the U.S. players could boast of great athleticism. In addition to playing rugby on the 1920 team, Dink Templeton finished fourth in the long jump. Teammate Morris Kirksey also competed in the 100-meter race, finishing second to Charley Paddock. Kirkseys speed was an asset that made up for his lack of rugby knowledge.Among the most prominent American rugby players of the era was Colby Babe Slater, who played rugby in high school, was a multisport star at UC Davis, was on the 1920 U.S. team and captain of the 1924 squad (his brother Norman was on the 1924 team as well). Slater also served in World War I in the medical corps, risking death while experiencing some of the most horrific sights imaginable in Belgium --- then returning there for the 1920 Olympics in Antwerp.Another top U.S. player was Rudy Scholz, who also played on both gold medal teams. He loved rugby so much that he would continue playing it all the way into his 80s. He and Babe Slater are the focus of Mark Ryans excellent book on those teams, For the Glory, where Hughes learned much about what the teams endured.While the U.S. did not have a lot of rugby experience, at least it didnt face a lot of opposition. Because of disagreements over requirements, scheduling and expenses, just two countries competed in 1920.The Americans opponent in the one-game event was France, the overwhelming favorite. But playing in wet and sloppy conditions, the U.S. upset the French 8-0 to win gold. And set up the incredible 1924 adventure.Out of a desire to gain revenge, the French Olympic committee sent a request to the California Rugby Union that it compete in the 1924 Games.As U.S. player Norman Cleaveland told Mark Jenkins for a 1989 story in American Heritage magazine: They were looking for a punching bag. We were told to go to Paris and take our beatings like gentlemen.It was even more unclear whether the U.S. would compete in 1924 than it had been in 1920. An additional four years had passed since colleges had dropped rugby, leaving even fewer experienced players available.This invitation was considered from all angles, U.S. coach Charlie Austin wrote in his report to the USOC. As rugby was a dead issue with us, as we had ceased to play it as a popular sport in 1914, we did not know whether we could gather a team which would do credit to the United States.Eventually, the California club and the USOC chose to accept the invitation, though, as Goodman wrote, it had to overcome many obstacles such as lack of organization, equipment, finances, players, and the necessary facilities.Although the Olympics were to open in July, the rugby games were held in May. The U.S. team took a train across the country and sailed to England aboard a ship in April. After arriving in England, it played three helpful games against very welcoming British teams before heading across the Channel to France.Thats where the obstacles got worse. When the ship docked, French officials were not willing to let the Americans disembark because of issues with their visas.The trip next morning from Folkstone, England, to Boulogne, France, was extremely rough and we were in no mood for the unpleasant reception we received at the hands of the officials of the country who was supposedly entertaining the worlds athletes, Goodman wrote. There was no one to meet us; our baggage was seized and for a time we were not even allowed to land on Frenchh soil, simply because the French Olympic Committee had not taken care of our visas. Nike Air VaporMax Uomo. There were reports that the U.S. rugby team formed a scrum to force its way off the ship and past French security. Cleaveland told Olympic historian John Lucas, a Penn State professor, for a paper in 1986: We started a near riot, crashed the fence and made our way to Paris through hellish rain.Bob Latham, the current chairman of U.S. rugby, has heard many tales about the docking. They were absolutely being turned back, he said. Even when they hit land, they were outrunning the authorities.All of which led some in the French newspapers to refer to the U.S. players as streetfighters and saloon brawlers. Goodman also wrote that the U.S. team was forced to train on a miserable field near their hotel until they were finally allowed into Colombes Stadium, where the Olympics were to be held. According to Ryan, some in the French media even denied that the U.S. had won the 1920 gold medal in rugby.Without going into details about our stay in the French capital, Goodman wrote, it is only necessary to remark that we were accorded anything but hospitable treatment; in fact, many times we were treated with open hostility.Why such hostility at an Olympics, especially after the U.S. had played a decisive role in beating the Germans and Austrians in World War I when it joined France and the Allies in 1917? For one thing, Ryan writes, the French were upset by U.S. president Woodrow Wilsons Fourteen Points after the war, which included softer punishment for the Germans.Plus, the French rugby fans wanted to get the gold medal back.There was slightly more rugby competition in 1924 than 1920: Romania joined to make it a three-nation contest.The U.S. again wasnt considered much of a threat, but at least America was better than Romania. In perhaps the worst Olympic performance that ever earned a bronze medal, Romania went 0-2, losing 61-3 to France and 37-0 to the U.S. That set up a rematch of the 1920 gold-medal game.Although it lacked some rugby experience, the U.S. team made up for it with its size and tackling ability when the game was more physical.From contemporary reports, it was the physicality of the Americans, Latham said. We may not have had much rugby skills, but we knew how to tackle. That these guys were able to lay things on the line and play a very physical game is what carried them through it all.The U.S. was jeered in the championship match against the heavily favored home team. Nonetheless, the Americans tackling approach helped them take a 3-0 halftime lead and knock star French player Adolphe Jaureguy out of the game, along with another player. Those injuries helped the U.S. dominate the second half and beat France 17-3.The French fans were not happy. They booed the Americans so heavily (with some fans throwing bottles) that the team had to be escorted out of the stadium by police, and a few U.S. fans were even assaulted in the stands and had to be hospitalized.Thank goodness for the 9-foot-high fence between us and the slaughter-minded fans, Cleaveland told Lucas.Men like Babe Slater and Scholz were disgusted by what they saw, Ryan writes in his book: Like so many others, they had been willing to risk their lives in the First World War to restore Frances freedom. ... Such a display of hatred from a supposed ally was beyond their understanding.As unpleasant as that match was, conditions improved afterward when the U.S. team traveled through France playing exhibitions. They won over the players and the French rugby people, Latham said. They extended their tour and were actually respected.They should also be remembered.Our victory in 1924 made the hockey win against the Soviets look like an everyday occurrence, U.S. player Charlie Doe told Jenkins. If we had that kind of coverage, rugby might be the great American pastime today.Rugby was dropped from the Olympics after 1924 and would not return until more than nine decades had passed and all the gold medalists had died.In large part, this was due to the departure of Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympics. He loved rugby and was a force behind its place in the Games. He left as IOC president following the 1924 Games, and his replacement, Count Henri de Baillet-Latour, did not favor team sports in the Olympics. Thus, rugby did not survive.Coubertin certainly championed getting rugby into the Olympics. ... So losing him as a champion of it, I think, certainly hurt, Latham said. Not only how he exerted influence in Olympic circles, but how much he wanted to exert after France lost gold-medal matches in 1920 and 1924.Few people today know about the 1920 and 1924 U.S. teams, though UC Davis has presented an award named after Babe Slater to the schools top male athlete since 1965. The university also is making sure to highlight his achievements this summer -- not that Slater pumped his accomplishments much.He never overly talked about it, said Dick McCapes, his son-in-law. I was aware that there were Olympic diplomas and medals in his office, but I never fully appreciated his accomplishments until much later in life. If you asked, he would talk about it but would answer briefly. He was focused on the present.Slater would be focused on the Rio Games, because rugby is finally back, albeit in the rugby sevens form. There will be a dozen teams competing, including New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Fiji and Great Britain but not Romania, which will make winning gold again considerably more difficult.The players now are much better, and there are more opponents to play, Latham said. The competition is stronger, more athletes are coming to the sport as the sport of first choice. More people are in their prime physical years. They have rugby instinct. Just the opportunity to play and the coaching has become much more organized and sophisticated. And more mainstream.While the competition will be tougher, the U.S. players are better. So they could win gold, just as the 1924 team did. And at least they didnt have to pay their own way to Rio or fight their way off the plane when they got here.The first thing [this team] should take from 1924 is thats our gold medal to defend, Latham said. We dont want to lose that. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

(STATS) -- Talk surrounding the FCS playoffs this weekend will center around whos in and whos out of the 24-team field. Bills Jerseys Online .When the seeded teams with first-round byes begin play in two weeks, the excitement figures to center around the biggest possible change to the field -- fresher matchups rather than the same ol, same ol.While the NCAA Division I FCS selection committee will make the pairings regional when possible, beginning this year, conferences with four or more competing teams will be split over both sides of the bracket.In each of the first three playoffs since they were expanded to 24 in 2013, there has been at least two conferences with four or more qualifiers. This year, the Big Sky, CAA Football, Missouri Valley and Southern conferences are all strong candidates to reach that number.Hopefully what it means, Brian Hutchinson, chair of the selection committee, said Wednesday, is that its more exciting to our fans that theyre not watching the same game theyve already seen before, at least something similar to what theyve seen before, that theyre going to see really good quality opponents, and playing in different places than theyve played. If thats what that means and it generates a little bit more excitement about the championship, then I think thats probably a very, very good thing.The change in policy occurred following conference unrest over last years field, which included all five qualifiers from the Missouri Valley Football Conference being placed in one half of the bracket through regionalization, which can minimize travel and expenses.The playoffs consist of 10 conference champions which receive automatic bids and 14 at-large selections. There are eight first-round games on Nov. 26, with the winners advancing to meet the seeded teams in the second round. The championship game will be held Jan. 7 in Frisco, Texas.Six of last years eight second-round games had been played during the regular season -- three were between teams from the same conference. That is less likely to happen this year.I do think its very possible that we have an opportunity for a little bit less regionalization this year than weve had in previous years, Hutchinson said. One, because of who the teams are that are vying for the championship and, two, because we have a little more flexibility in our bracketing principles to ensure that we avoid some common seasonal matchups. Its not something weve talked about specifically yet, but in sort of reading the tea leaves, I think thats where we are.The other big change for the committee has been the release of Top 10 rankings each of the last three weeks, intended to create interest in the playoffs and basically a preview to what teams could earn seeds.Hutchinson says the margin between the top six ranked teams has been razor-thin and is part of the reason that, as all six have continued to win games, Sam Houston State dropped from No. 2 to No. 5 in the second ranking, Jacksonville State dropped from No. 1 to No. 3 in the third and final ranking, and North Dakota State rose from No. 4 to No. 1 over the final two rankings.Its not that significant if you know how closely ranked they were in terms of just the way our point system works, Hutchinson said.Hutchinson, who is the Morehead State athletic director, said the biggest factors when evaluating a team for the field are overall record, results against Division I opponents, record against other conferences that have automatic qualifiers, head-to-head results against other potential qualifiers, common opponents records and the Simple Rating System, which quantifies the strength of a teams schedule.---=FCS CO-GAME OF THE WEEK=The Matchup: No. 9 North Carolina A&T (9-1, 7-0 MEAC) at No. 24 North Carolina Central (8-2, 7-0)Kickoff: 2 p.m. ET at OKelly-Riddick Stadium (10,000) in Durham, North CarolinaTelevision: ESPN2Series: North Carolina A&T leads 49-33-5 (last meeting: North Carolina Central won 21-16 in Greensboro on Nov. 21, 2015)The Skinny: Its winner-take-all -- the outright MEAC championship and Celebration Bowl bid. The losing team can be considered for an at-large bid to the FCS playoffs. N.C. A&T coach Rod Broadway was N.C. Centrals coach from 2003-06. The visiting Aggies have won all of their MEAC games by an average of nearly 24 points. All-American RB Tarik Cohen (1,769 all-purpose yards, 18 TDs) has gone over 100 rushing yards in each of his three games against the Eagles, gaining 203 yards and two TDs in a 2014 loss. N.C. Central QB Malcolm Bell, who has thrown for the most yards (2,007) and touchdowns (15) in the MEAC, will attack an Aggies defense that ranks last in pass defense. DEs Antiono Brown (7) and Henry-Ajudua (6.5) rank third and fourth, respectively, in the MEAC in sacks.Prediction: Hovering over the Aggies during a glorious three-year run are losses to N.C. Central to end the last two regular seasons. N.C. A&T, 28-21.---=FCS CO-GAME OF THE WEEK=The Matchup: No. 11 Central Arkansas (9-1, 8-0 Southland) at No. 1 Sam Houston State (10-0, 8-0)Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET at Bowers Stadium (12,975) in Huntsville, TexasTelevision: ESPN3Series: Tied 5-5 (last meeting: Sam Houston State won 42-13 in Conway, Arkansas, on Nov. 21, 2015)The Skinny: The Southland Conference championship and outright bid to the FCS playoffs are at stake. The loser is at risk of falling from a first-round bye. UCA, the nations best at defending the run, has limited opponents to 26 minutes of ball control and is the only FCS team to rank in the national top 10 in total defense (300.7 ypg) and scoring defense (16.8 ppg). Top WRs Jatavious Wilson and Tremon Smith (52 receptions each) also are threats on kickoff and punt returns, respectively. It took until last Saturdays 10th game of the season for Sam Houston to fall behind an opponent. The Bearkats have the No. 2 passing offense in the FCS and QB Jeremiah Briscoe has thrown for 45 TDs (three shy of the Southland single-season record), but their team runs the ball over 46 percent of the time, led by Remus Bulmer and Corey Avery (combined 1,430 yards and 15 TDs).Prediction: The Bearkats surely wont be playing with the usual early lead, so its time to answer the challenge.

A lawyer for MLB, Matthew Menchel, confirmed Wednesday the league dropped its case against Biogenesis of America, its owner Anthony Bosch and several other individuals. The lawsuit had accused Biogenesis and Bosch of conspiring with players to violate their contracts by providing them with banned performance-enhancing substances. 51.5 - Ashwin to Latham Nineteen dot balls led to a wicket. Indias spinners bowled 31 overs on the second day and managed only two maidens. On day three, they bowled two maidens in the first four overs and the result was telling. Theres always a particular bit of advice floating around the field in Test matches - stitch the dots together - and that invariably leads to wickets.On a turning pitch, straight balls are as potent as the ones that turn Both Tom Latham and Ross Taylor played for the turn and got beaten by the one that went straight after pitching, and thats not the batsmens fault. When most balls are gripping the surface and turning, you tend to play outside or inside the line depending on the bowler. For example, you plant the front foot a little across for the bowlers who are taking the ball away from you, and go a lot straighter for the bowlers who are bringing the ball into you. Ideally you keep the bat in front of the pad to take care of the straighter ones, but that is not always possible and is especially tougher to do early on in your innings.73rd over - Yadav runs in but wheres the reverse swing? Two and a half days into the Test match, on a dry pitch in the subcontinent, and there had not been any reverse swing on show. After the first day, the consensus was that New Zealand failed to maintain the shine on the ball, which can be attributed to it being early days on the tour. For the ball to reverse swing, its imperative to keep the ball dry as well as shine one side. But that is a little difficult to do in hot and humid conditions, and New Zealands bowlers and fielders might have passed some moisture onto the ball unwittingly. But the same cant be true for Indias bowlers and fielders, for they are well versed with the conditions and its demands. The verdict thus far: the SG Test balls used in this Test have not produced any reverse swing.One will bring many The fundamental difference between sporting pitches in the subcontinent and elsewhere is that here its almost certain that one wicket will bring a few more, and Kanpur is no different. New Zealand were only 63 runs behind with five wickets in hand but the moment one wicket fell, the collapse started.Offspinners without silly point The ball had spun from the first session of the first day. As the match progressed, the rough became prominent and by the third session, you could see a puff of dust every time the ball pitched outside off for the right-hand batsmen. Considering this, you might have wondered why none of the captains opted to place a fielder close to the bat on the off side. Setting the field in a Test match is a part of the larger strategy: you plug certain holess and leave some unplugged intentionally to tempt the batsman. Black Friday Bills Jerseys. Thats exactly why there was not a fielder at silly point for offspinners; the idea was to encourage the batsman to go across in order to play the ball against spin, which in turn is likely to induce the inside edge. So far, though, no batsman has fallen for it.After tea - 11 balls, seven boundaries Session breaks are considered to be partnership breakers, as it is not only tougher for batsman to start afresh but the interval also allows bowlers to rest their shoulders. In this case, New Zealand were even better placed because KL Rahul fell at the stroke of tea. But instead of starting strongly, their spinners dished out a flurry of ordinary balls to which Indias batsmen responded positively. At least five of the seven boundaries they hit in eleven balls were either half-volleys, full tosses or rank long hops. Both Cheteshwar Pujara and M Vijay are too good to miss out on those. New Zealand were rapidly losing their grip on the match. 28th over - Guptill in action: quality v quantity New Zealand played one more spinner than India but were forced to go to Martin Guptill in the 28th over. Once the pitch slows down, the need for consistency with regards to speed and length increases manifold. The only option for variation you still have is with the lines. In the second innings, the New Zealand spinners have not been consistent enough to create pressure. On the other hand, Indias batsmen have been significantly more aggressive in punishing the loose balls and decisive with their foot movement.The leg trap is an art Towards the end of days play, Kane Williamson used Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi to bowl from over and around the stumps respectively, into the rough outside right-hand batsmens leg stump. While its a great idea to change the angles and pose different questions, the execution of the plan left a lot to be desired. Once you target the rough outside leg, you must force the batsman to play almost everything off the front foot and, also, bowl a foot or more outside leg stump. Sodhi did bowl a foot outside leg, but he was a little too short and that allowed the batsmen to negate the threat by playing off the back foot. While Santner bowled a lot fuller, he kept pitching in the undamaged area of the pitch; instead of targeting the rough outside leg, he bowled a lot straighter. Its unfair to blame them for this, though, for setting up a leg trap is an art that needs mastering; it can only happen if youve done it a lot of times in your career.
