CHICAGO -- Kris Bryant says he gets chills every time the fans at Wrigley Field shower him with MVP! chants. Djibril Sidibe Jersey France .The 24-year-old just doesnt show it -- a common trait among his young teammates. If anything can overwhelm these kid Cubbies, they havent faced it yet.Bryant was one of five players 24 or younger in the starting lineup for the Cubs during Game 6 of the NL Championship Series, and that group is showing maturity beyond its years. Keep this up, and they could give Chicago a party generations in the making.Bryant has already established himself as one of the games top power hitters. Javier Baez (23 years old) made one spectacular play after another in the infield while winning NLCS co-MVP. Addison Russell (22) is an All-Star shortstop with power and Gold Glove aspirations. Catcher Willson Contreras (24) and outfielder Albert Almora Jr. (22) are rookies getting at-bats with a heavy World Series favorite.And so the Cubs are seeking their first championship since 1908 fueled by players too young to remember the first time a Clinton vied for the U.S. presidency.Chicago beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS for its first pennant since 1945, and now faces the Cleveland Indians in the World Series with a chance to end the sports longest title drought.If Chicagos youngsters feel any jitters before Game 1 on Tuesday night in Cleveland, dont expect to see them.Our young players are playing like theyre 32-year-old veterans, 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta said. Its just fun to watch. I get to play one out of every five days, but to really see the way our guys go about taking care of business makes me really appreciate the guys Im able to play with.Bryant and the other burgeoning Cubs helped Chicago lead the majors with 103 wins in the regular season, and its been more of the same in October. After pulling out 14 victories in their final at-bat during the regular season, the Cubs did it twice against San Francisco in the NL Division Series, then rallied from a 2-1 series deficit to beat the Dodgers.Veterans like Jon Lester have done their part, but the younger players have had plenty of pivotal moments, too.None more so than Baez, a breakout star this postseason with his lightning-quick tags and preternatural decision making in the field.He shared NLCS MVP honors with Lester after leading the Cubs to their 17th pennant and is batting .342 this postseason. He hit a winning homer off Johnny Cueto in Game 1 of the NLDS against San Francisco, then had a go-ahead single in the series-clinching victory in Game 4. He had four doubles and five RBI in the NLCS, too.Baezs biggest moments, though, mostly came outside the batters box. He stole home during Chicagos win in Game 1 of the NLCS, turned a heads-up double play by letting a soft liner bounce in front of him with two on in Game 2, and made a fantastic barehanded scoop to rob Adrian Gonzalez of a hit in Game 5.Baez is doing all that after emerging as a super utility player for manager Joe Maddon this season. Baez cut down on his swing and hit .273 with 14 homers and 59 RBI in 142 games, and as important, he embraced a role shuffling between positions.This guy never faltered, Lester said. He accepted his role as being a bench player and kind of a platoon guy. Thats hard to do at 20 or whatever he is.Bryant is on the short list of NL MVP candidates after joining Rogers Hornsby (1929), Hack Wilson (1930) and Derrek Lee (2005) as the only players with the franchise to get at least 120 runs, 35 doubles, 39 homers and 100 RBI. Hes 13 for 39 with a homer and six RBI in the postseason.Russell is only starting to make an impact in October, busting a 1-for-24 slump by going 6 for 13 with two homers in the final three games of the NLCS. Contreras, meanwhile, hit his first career playoff homer against Clayton Kershaw in the series clincher.You should not change what youre doing regardless of the time of the year, Maddon said after Game 6. You want to come out in the middle of October and play the same game weve been playing all summer.The youngsters have given the Cubs a lot of good games so far. Four more, and as Maddon said, We can really have a party. Ousmane Dembele Jersey France . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. Thomas Lemar Jersey France .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. http://www.cheapfrancejerseyssoccer.com/?tag=corentin-tolisso-jersey-france . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said.PHILADELPHIA -- Jacoby Ellsbury stole five bases and took one more home with him. David Ortiz and Jonny Gomes homered and Ellsbury set a club record for stolen bases in a game as the Boston Red Sox routed the Philadelphia Phillies 9-2 on Thursday night. Afterward, the Phillies presented Ellsbury with a base to acknowledge his accomplishment. "Its pretty neat," Ellsbury said of the record. "As long as the Red Sox have been around . Its pretty special." "Single-handedly, he changed the game," Boston manager John Farrell said of Ellsbury. "When you have that kind of base-stealing threat, its a huge asset." Ellsbury added three hits and Jarrod Saltalamacchia had two doubles and three RBIs for the Red Sox, who enter this weekends series against their AL East rival New York Yankees having won 11 of 16 games. Ellsbury was on base five times, adding a walk and hit by pitch to the base hits. "Getting on base that many times, you want to take advantage and put pressure on the defence," he said. The Phillies didnt do much to prevent Ellsbury from advancing. "He was getting a walking lead and weve got to stop that," Philadelphia manager Charlie Manuel said. Manuel also spoke a familiar refrain afterward, lamenting Philadelphias lack of offence. The Phillies have scored three runs or fewer in 31 of their 54 games this season, dropping to 8-23 when doing so. "Its a battle for us to win games," Manuel said. "We havent blown many people out. In order for us to get a winning streak, we have to score more runs." Franklin Morales (1-0) allowed four hits in five innings with two strikeouts and two walks in his first appearance this season. Four relievers closed it out with four scoreless innings. "He kept the game under control," Farrell said of Morales. "That was a solid five innings of work." Said Morales, "I got the lead and knew I had to make my pitches. I felt great today." Delmon Young homered and Domonic Brown remained hot with a pair of hits for Philadelphia, which was trying to get back to .500 for the first time since April 14. Phillies rookie Jonathan Pettibone (3-1) surrendered four runs in a 28-pitch first inning. Cesar Hernandez, filling in for injured Chase Utley (oblique) at second base, also had two hits. But the Phillies managed a total of just six hits. "We swing at bad balls," Manuel said. Morales (back) came off the disabled list and got the nod when Jon Lesters start was bumped back a day to Friday to give ace Clay Buchholz, who had been sscheduled to start Fridays series opener at the Yankees, more time to recover from a shoulder injury that forced him to miss Mondays start. Raphael Varane Jersey France. . Buchholz could pitch in Sundays series finale against the Yankees, though the Red Sox havent announced a starter for that game. Pettibone (3-1) hadnt given up more than three earned runs in his first seven career starts, but left after giving up six hits, striking out five and walking four in five innings. Saltalamacchias two-run double to was the big blow in the first for Boston, which got RBIs from Dustin Pedroia and Mike Carp in the opening frame. "I wasnt being aggressive early on, I wasnt finishing the batters," Pettibone said. "The plan was to pound the lefties inside. I kind of fell behind and that didnt help." After the Phillies got a pair of runs back on Youngs opposite-field, two-run homer to right in the bottom of the first, Morales kept the Phillies scoreless for the next four. "After the first inning he settled in and was making his pitches," Manuel said. Boston tacked on a run in the sixth when Gomes, pinch-hitting for Morales, hit a solo homer to left-centre off Phillies left-handed reliever Jeremy Horst to put Boston ahead 5-2. Horst hit Bostons next batter, Ellsbury, prompting home-plate umpire Bill Miller to warn both teams. And Boston took a 6-2 lead in the seventh when Ortiz led off the inning with a majestic homer to right field. Manager John Farrell lifted Ortiz, who was making his first start at first base this season, in the middle of the seventh. Despite Millers warning, Philadelphia reliever Michael Stutes and Boston reliever Mortensen each hit a batter after the caution but werent ejected. Notes: Manuel didnt play slugger Ryan Howard, who has been battling a sore knee, against the left-handed Morales. . Morales was 3-4 with a 3.77 ERA in 37 games with Boston last season. . Youngs homer was just the third in the last 33 Phillies homers that was not a solo shot. . Ellsburys previous career high of four stolen bases came on August 9, 2010 at the Yankees. . Browns homer streak ended at three games, but he has 14 hits in his last 38 at-bats after going 2-for-4. . Boston heads to New York on Friday for a showdown with their AL East rival Yankees at 7:05 p.m. Lester (6-1, 3.34) is scheduled to face New York lefty CC Sabathia (4-4, 3.96) in the first of a three-game series. . The Phillies host Milwaukee for the first of three games at 7:05 Friday night when Philadelphia left-hander Cole Hamels (1-8, 4.43) is scheduled to face Brewers righty Yovani Gallardo (3-5, 4.79).

Match factsSeptember 23, 2016 Start time 8pm local (1600GMT)Big PicturePakistans stellar run in Test cricket culminated with their rise to No. Raul Jimenez Jersey Mexico .1 in the ICCs rankings for the first time . In limited-overs cricket, however, they are way behind the pack: ninth in ODIs and seventh in T20Is. Their outdated style, based on a safety-first approach, has largely been responsible for their sharp nosedive.West Indies are behind the pack in Test cricket, but their attack-first approach in limited-overs cricket, especially in T20Is, has made them the heartthrobs of the shortest format. It resurfaced when they secured their second World T20 earlier this year in India.Their MVPs - Andre Russell and Chris Gayle - arent in either squad, but they still have the luxury of depth. Opener Evin Lewis shellacked a 48-ball ton against India in Lauderhill last month, the sixth fastest in T20Is. The uncapped players - Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran, who hit 143 out of West Indies Under-19s 208 at this venue two years ago at the World Cup - overcame a top-order flutter in the warm-up game against Emirates Cricket Board XI on Tuesday. Fast bowler Kesrick Williams, who bowled a sensational triple-wicket maiden in the CPL, is also in the mix.Pakistan dont have enough firepower, but Sarfraz Ahmeds calmness in a team filled with mercurial batsmen stands out. They also welcome back their highest run-getter in T20Is - Umar Akmal (1689 runs at a strike rate of 122.92). They showed some late sparks on the trip to the UK, but it remains to be seen if they can they convert it into a proper white-ball revival.Form guide(last five completed matches, most recent first)Pakistan WLLLW West Indies WWWLWIn the spotlightFormer Pakistan coach Waqar Younis was all for Umar regaining his berth in the national side following the World T20 if he showed domestic form. Umar has done just that, finishing as the leading run-getter in the National T20 Cup with 363 runs, including 34 in an over off Yasir Arafat, at an average and strike rate of 72.60 and 183.33. His cousin, Babar Azam, who was among those to receive glowing appraisals from coach Mickey Arthur after the England tour, seems a good investment.Finisher with bat, finisher with the ball. Excellent situational awareness. Dwayne Bravo is probably the most sought-after T20 player. Pakistan will have to be wary of the big dipping offcutter on sluggish surfaces the sides are likely to encounter in this series.Teams newsThe returning Umar is a near-certainty in the XI, which means Mohammad Rizwan, who had played as a specialist batsman in the one-off T20 at Old Trafford, is likely to miss out. Left-arm spinning allrounder Mohammad Nawaz, who claimed 4 for 26 to seal Karachi Blues tense National T20 Cup win, might push Hasan Ali and Saad Nasim out of the team.Pakistan (probable): 1 Sharjeel Khan, 2 Khalid Latif, 3 Babar Azam, 4 Umar Akmal, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Imad Wasim, 8 Wahab Riaz, 9 Hasan Ali/Mohammad Nawaz/Saad Nasim, 10 Sohail Tanvir, 11 Mohammad AmirPooran will jostle with Powell for a middle-order slot thrown open by the absence of Lendl Simmons, who is out because of medial reasons. The other uncapped player in the squad- Williams - did not bowl or bat in the warm-up match. This suggests there will be a shootout between Jerome Taylor and Jason Holder for the seam bowling berth.West Indies (probable): 1 Johnson Charles, 2 Evin Lewis, 3 Marlon Samuels, 4 Andre Fletcher(wk), 5 Rovman Powell/Nicholas Pooran, 6 Kieron Pollard, 7 Carlos Brathwaite(capt), 8 Dwayne Bravo, 9 Sunil Narine, 10 Samuel Badree, 11 Jerome Taylor/Jason HolderPitch and conditionsPowell had said that the surface for the practice game was dry and slow. A similar surface is expected for the first T20I. Friday is expected to be a sunny day with the temperature nudging towards 40 degrees. However, It is likely to drop to 33 degrees at night.Stats and triviaSohail Tavir needs three wickets to become the fourth Pakistan bowler, after Shahid Afridi, Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal, to reach 50 wickets in T20IsBravo is the second-highest wicket-taker in T20s this year with 63 scalps in 54 matches. Russell tops the list with 68 wickets in 51 matchesPakistan have lost seven out of 12 T20Is in 2016. West Indies, meanwhile, have lost only one of eight T20Is this year.QuotesEven though Pakistan has not been playing international cricket in our country we have played very good sides and beaten them in their home conditions.Pakistan batsman Shoaib MalikI always thought I will play for West Indies when I was 21. I am 20 at the moment. While I was a youngster, I watched these guys win two World Cups… Just trying to take the opportunity and make the full use of it.

IRVING, Texas -- Sarah Thomas was never hit by the pressure of being the first woman to be a full-time NFL game official until after her first season on the job. Mats Hummels Jersey Germany .It wasnt until this past offseason that Thomas pondered what really happened after accomplishing her goal, which was to work full-time at footballs highest level and not necessarily be a trailblazer in doing so.When I first started all this last year, I said I dont feel the pressure of it or anything like that, and I dont feel as if I did during the season, she said. But once I reflected back, I knew that there was a lot of pressure. ... When I reflected back on it, I thought if something major had happened with being a first, not that I recognize myself as that, but just being a first, that it could have gone one of two ways. So Im glad that it was a very smooth, under-the-radar, first year.Thomas is now preparing for her second season as a side judge. While still the only woman on the field in the NFL, she considers it a compliment that there is much less fanfare this time around.Dean Blandino, the NFLs vice president of officiating, agrees and said Thomas had the same bumps as any first-year official.It was obviously big news last year, but she handled everything so well, and she had such a poise and grace about herself, Blandino said this month at the NFLs annual officiating clinic. Its a challenge for any first-year official. For a first-year official to also be the first female official, there were a lot of other challenges that came with that and she handled everything really well, and had a good season.All nine first-time officials from last season are back this season, and there are three rookies among the 124 officials hired for 2016.When Pittsburghs LeVeon Bell scored on a wildcat run as time expired for a victory at San Diego to wrap up Week 5 last season, Thomas was the line judge who signaled the touchdown. Bell initially appeared to be stopped, but pushed forward and reached the ball across the goal line just before his knee hit the ground. A replay review confirmed the call was right.Imagine the uproar on social media and the general reaction had the NFLs first female official blown that call. Most fans never even realized she was there.We just want to be officials, we want to go unseen, Thomas said in general, and not about that particular play. Youve heard it for years and years and years, and it is the truth. If you dont notice the officials then weve done a great job, and thats what set out to do.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said during the first NFL Womens Summit in San Francisco, which was part of Super Bowl 50, that Thomas in her first season did a fantastic job, and were very proud of her.Thomas, the mother of three children, was part of the NFLs officiating development program in 2013 and 2014 and had worked at minicamps, training camps and exhibition games before getting hired full-time last year. She had officiated for Conference USA since 2007, with assignments including bowl game and two league championship games.I never set out to be the first, but when I did speak or I was encouraged with womens groups, its good to hear them ask questions how did you approach it, and for me to be able to say the National Football League had the utmost respect for me as they did any other official, she said.Last March, Thomas hometown of Pascagoula, Mississippi, renamed its recreational gym in honor of the former high school basketball and softball standout who was also given a key to the city.Blandino said there are more women in the development program.Were seeing more women officiating football in general, and I think were going to see them continue to develop, Blandino said. At some point, were going to see another female official in the NFL. ... Women are officiating and thats part of our program, and I think its really moving in the right direction.---Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---This story has been corrected to children instead of boys in 12th paragraph. Manuel Neuer Jersey Germany . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Marvin Plattenhardt Jersey Germany .

SEATTLE -- Chris Hansen is not going away in his pursuit of bringing the NBA back to Seattle. Adidas Swift Run Womens . Hansen released a statement on his SonicsArena.com website on Monday afternoon, congratulating Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson on his efforts to keep the Kings in California, while also vowing to keep up his pursuit of getting the NBA back to Seattle. "Even as we are disappointed with the developments related to our efforts to purchase the Kings, we would just like to reiterate our dedication to bringing the NBA back to Seattle," Hansen wrote. "We will continue to press forward with our arena plans with the same commitment and effort we have over the last two years, and look forward to working with the City (of Seattle) and (King) County to see the project through the hurdles that remain. Likewise, we plan to continue to work with the league regarding opportunities that may arise to return an NBA franchise to our City." Hansens statement came less than a week after his attempts to purchase the Kings and move them to Seattle were denied by the NBA Board of Governors in Dallas. The leagues owners voted 22-8 to deny the move of the franchise to Seattle and the Maloof family struck a deal with lead Sacramento investor Vivek Ranadive a day later to sell the Kings and keep them in Sacramento by selling a 65 per cent controlling interest at a total franchise valuation of $535 million. Hansens group -- that includes Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer -- had offered a purchase price based on a $625 million franchise valuation and a relocation fee of $115 million. "Given what our community went through in 2008, if there is any silver lining in this for Seattle it is seeing Sacramentos dedicated fan base successfully rally to keep the Kings," Hansen wrote. "This was never about Seattle fans versus Sacramento fans, and it goes unsaid that there is a mutual respect given the circumstances we have both been through." Fans of the league and supporters of Hansens efforts believed this was the best opportunity to bring the NBA back. Political and public support was at its peak since the messy departure of the Sonics for Oklahoma City following the 2008 season. Hansen made a point in his statement of thanking the political leaders that have stood behind his arena efforts and his pursuit of the Kings and thanked fans for displaying their desire to see the NBA return. From the start of the process, Hansen has pledged patience and reiterated that need. "When we began our efforts in 2011, we went into it knowing that above all else it would take patience," he wrote. Yeezy Desert Rat 500 For Sale .

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Some of Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis most enduring lessons didnt come on a football field, but rather on a tractor while growing up in Dillon, South Carolina. Portugal Rui Patricio World Cup Jersey .His parents, Robert Jr. and Becky Jane Chavis, were Cherokee sharecroppers, and Chavis -- one of 10 children in the family -- learned at an early age the importance of earning his keep and doing things the right way. The family squeezed into a small house on the landowners property before Chavis father saved enough money to buy his own home. They mostly grew tobacco, but there were also other crops to be planted out of season.I can still remember my dad saying when wed be planting whatever we were planting at that time that if one little spot was crooked, that he was going to wear my rear end out, Chavis recalled fondly. To him, it wasnt just planting the rows. They had to be straight, or it wasnt good enough.Just as important in the elder Chavis eyes was the premise that the only job that mattered was the one you were doing right then.He was a farmer and not the most educated man, but he taught me a lot, how to fish and how to hunt. The most important thing he taught me, though, was how to work, Chavis said. The best job is the one youve got, and youve got to take the right kind of pride in that job to make it that way.If youre always looking around, then youre not doing what you need to do to do your job right.In a world where coaches chase jobs the way most neighborhood dogs chase the ice cream truck, Chavis is the refreshing exception. He has been the quintessential grinder, coaching at just three schools since he returned to his alma mater, Tennessee, in 1989 as a defensive line coach.Its not like he hasnt had chances to move around, either. He has turned down job interviews for head coaching gigs as well as NFL opportunities in the past. And, had it not been for his distrust of the LSU administration and his suspicion that Les Miles would eventually be forced out, Chavis probably never would have left LSU.Coach Miles is a good man and good coach. He was never the reason I left there, Chavis said.So here he is at Texas A&M, a year and a half into one of his greatest challenges yet -- resurrecting an Aggie defense that was beaten down, beaten up and floundering near the bottom of the SEC in most defensive categories when Chavis arrived prior to the 2015 season.We always felt like we had the talent, but that something was missing, Texas A&M junior safety Armani Watts said. Coach Chavis was that missing piece, the way he came in here and made us believe. We took on his personality on defense, that were going to be the ones to set the tone.Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin had already decided a few things needed to change in Aggieland if they were going to survive in the SECs rugged Western Division. He knew bringing in Chavis, known as Chief to most around the college football world, would go a long way toward making Texas A&M a tougher, more physical football team -- and not just on defense. Plus, Sumlin had grown weary of competing against Chavis, especially seeing the way he shut down Johnny Manziel and the Aggies for two straight seasons in 2012 and 2013. During Manziels Heisman-winning 2012 season, the Tigers picked him off three times and held him to 27 rushing yards in a 24-19 LSU win.Weve always had confidence offensively, the way weve done things, Sumlin said. Our defense was something that needed to not only change schematically, but to get some confidence and some pride. What (Chavis) has brought is an attitude that really started with our defensive players, giving them a reference point, or a standard rather, of what the defense should look like, and what the expectations are defensively, and hes held them to that standard.The No. 6 Aggies face their biggest test of the season Saturday at No. 1 Alabama, which has won three straight in the series (averaging 49.6 points in those three games) since losing in the Aggies debut SEC season in 2012.There are telltale signs Chavis has Texas A&Ms defense on the right track despite the Aggies giving up 684 yards, the most in school history, two weeks ago to Tennessee in a 45-38 double-overtime win. They are tied for second nationally in forced turnovers (17), third in tackles for loss (58), fourth in red zone defense (11 touchdowns in 26 red zone attempts), 13th in sacks (20), 22nd in scoring defense (19.2 points per game) and 28th in third-down defense (.340).With its back to the goal line, Texas A&M has been excellent. The Aggies played 18 snaps of defense inside their own 10 against Arkansas and gave up just 17 points in those 18 plays. Theyve allowed just 13 touchdowns in six games, and five came against Tennessee. But even against the Vols, the Aggies came up with seven turnovers, including Watts interception in the second overtime to seal the win.Even with defenses playing more plays than ever now because of all the teams utilizing tempo on offense, Chavis admittedly is still old school. One of his more legendary qualities is his stubbornness, and hes simply not ready to change his standards.If an offense scores more than 17 points or gains more than 300 yards against one of his defenses, Chavis is still going to be ornery, even in a win.Maybe Im not living in reality, but Im not going to change, Chavis said. Offenses have changed so much and are scoring so much. Its definitely a different feel, but then you look at the film, see things you can correct and feel a little bit better about it. I dont know if what constitutes good defense has changed or not. I just know that youre not going to win a championship unless you can stop people. Name me a team that wasnt good on defense that has won a championship. You cant.Indeed, only once since the start of the BCS era in 1998 has a team won a national championship and finished outside the top 30 nationally in scoring defense. The lone exception was Auburn in 2010. The Tigers finished 53rd that season in scoring defense, allowing an average of 24.1 points per game, but also had a guy named Cam Newton at quarterback.Perhaps the statistic that best puts into perspective what Chavis has meant to Texas A&M is how seldom it has given up 30 or more points on his watch. That was once a given in Aggieland, where winning a shootout was about the only way to win against a quality team. The Aggies yielded 30-plus points in half of their games (13 of 26) in the 2013 and 2014 seasons before Chavis arrived.But in Chavis first 19 games, it has happened only twice, and one doesnt really count because quarterback Kyle Allen threw three pick-sixes last season in a 41-23 loss to Alabama. The only other time came two weeks ago against Tennessee.We havent arrived, but were further along, Chavis said. The numbers may not be as good as last year. Im not sure, but I can tell you our players are more confident in what were doing, and they really, really want to be good. They care about each other, and theyre all buying into what were doing and the philosophy of this team.One of the assurances Chavis got from Sumlin before taking the job was that the Aggies would practice in such a way that would allow the defense to develop and keep an edge. Privately, just about all defensive coordinators curse the spread/tempo offense because of the lack of physicality in practices.?That has really bled over into what we want to do, Sumlin said. Weve changed a little bit philosophically offensively, obviously, to practice into that style and try to create a more physical football team. It started on defense. What weve tried to do across the board is continue that aggressive style and physical style, and I think its permeated throughout the football team.Whether he likes it or not, Chavis $1.6 million annual salary makes him a rock star among defensive coordinators. Of course, that doesnt mean Chavis has to act the part. Hes not big on publicity and has never been one of those coordinators constantly angling for a head coaching job.I guess I always cared more about winning than I did about being a head coach, Chavis said.When he was at Tennessee, he interviewed for the Middle Tennessee State head coaching job and turned down an opportunity to interview for the Army head job. He also briefly took a job on Dom Capers staff with the NFLs Houston Texans but changed his mind the next day. During his time at Tennessee and LSU, he had inquiries from everybody from Georgia to South Carolina to Texas about their open defensive coordinator positions. And when Miles hired Chavis prior to the 2009 season at LSU, the Mad Hatter had to beat Dabo Swinney and Clemson to the punch.When you start talking about the two best defensive coordinators in college football over the last 20 years, there are only two names -- Bud Foster and John Chavis, said Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, who grew up with Chavis and also played football with him at Tennessee. Sometimes guys are hot for a while and then sort of fizzle out, but not Chief. His consistency is remarkable, and its why so many of the top programs have come after him.The scars from being ousted at his alma mater when Phillip?Fulmer and his staff were fired following the 2008 season are still there, but it doesnt define his tenure in Knoxville.It took a little while to get over that. It really did, said Chavis, whose defense that final season at Tennessee was ranked No. 1 in the SEC and No. 3 nationally. But if you dont heal, then youre going to die. The memories I have at Tennessee arent defined by what happened that last season by any stretch of the imagination. We accomplished a lot of things, and a lot of young men who came through that program are young men I still love and care about.But with eight years to look back on it, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I was never going to leave Tennessee and had gotten too comfortable there.Chavis, who turned 60 earlier this month, is bearing down on his 40th year in coaching. Hes plenty comfortable in College Station, and any time the subject of how much longer he wants to coach is brought up, Chavis references something one of his favorite players once shared with him.Al Wilson, the heart and soul of the Vols 1998 national championship team, said, Chief, youll never know what you did for me. I never thought I could be that good. You made me believe that I could be that good, Chavis recalled.Wilson went on to become a Pro Bowl linebacker with the Denver Broncos, and his words have stuck with Chavis.Its the best compliment Ive ever had, Chavis said. It was humbling to hear him say that and to know that you had that kind of influence on a young man. As long as I can keep having that same kind of influence on the young men here at Texas A&M, Ill keep doing what Im doing.And rest assured that hell do it his way, the right way, and that all of the rows will be straight. Portugal Beto World Cup Jersey .

Courtney Lawes intends to celebrate his 50th England cap on Saturday by roaming Twickenham in search of South Africas biggest players as targets for his trademark hits. Hydro Flask 16 Oz Wide Mouth .The second row will take satisfaction from the milestone occasion knowing that injury has meant it will have been achieved the hard way, having made his debut in 2009.Several YouTube highlights reels pay tribute to Lawes bone-jarring tackles and the 27-year-old -- who describes his outlook to the game as still carefree -- insists it is the weapon in his armoury that gives him greatest satisfaction.I pride myself on being physical. Its not for myself and its certainly not for my shoulders, its for the team and giving energy to the boys, said Lawes, who will be calling the line-out against South Africa.Im not too fussed about who I hit, where I hit or how hard it is as long as Im doing my job.I prefer to stop the big guys rather than wiping out smaller ones. I do that frequently for Northampton, but when its on big guys the impact doesnt look anywhere near as bad because they are the same weight.Just as long as Im not missing tackles and Im doing my part for the team Im happy.When asked if he relished facing the Springboks because of the chance to tackle some of the sports biggest players, Lawes replied: Yes, definitely.But the laws of the game are changing and I dont want to put my team in any stress from getting cards so obviously the hits have taken a plunge from that.Of course we have strategies around the pack to deal with their physicality and hopefully we will put that into effect.We have spoken about how physical they are and how their mindset changes when they come to England and we will have to deal with that.Lawes duel with Springbok giant Eben Etzebeth is one of the most eagerly-awaited collisions on Saturday.Etzebeth is a big guy and he runs hard and straight. Its about technique, your height in the tackle and things like that, Lawes said.Im not going to fly into him and try and smoke him, but I can certainly put him down and make the next guys job a bit easier on my team.Lawes has profited from injuries to first-choice lock pairing Maro Itoje and George Kruis, but his 50th cap may have been delayed had he not recovered from the knee injury that forced his late withdrawal from two Northampton matches last month.I did it about a month ago and carried on playing. The problem with that is that it kept blowing up and I had to get the swelling down for the next game, Lawes said.It got to the point where I couldnt get it down so I just needed some time to rest and then crack on with playing. But Ive trained fully and its fine. Cheap Hydro Flask 24 oz Standard Mouth Mint Water Bottle . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN. Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Paytons New Orleans staff since 2007. Louisvilles Lamar Jackson confounded the Syracuse defense in just about every way. Quinton Flowers is ready to keep the ball rolling against the Orange.Flowers leads South Florida (2-0) into the Carrier Dome on Saturday afternoon, a week after Jackson led the No. 10 Cardinals to a 62-28 victory indoors. The Orange (1-1) allowed a school-record 845 yards as Jackson scored four times on runs and threw for another in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.It was a tough loss, said Orange wideout Amba Etta-Tawo, who has 20 catches for 313 yards in two games. It was embarrassing. It hurt our pride a little bit, but were not going to tuck our tails between our legs and run away and try to hide because we lost one game.It doesnt matter that they scored 60 or that they scored one more point than us. A loss is a loss, Etta-Tawo said. We just have to shake it off, just like you have to shake off a win. Its not being rattled. Its just getting ready for Saturday.And for what Flowers, another dual-threat quarterback, brings to the field. He accounted for 403 of his teams 658 yards of total offense and was named American Athletic Conference offensive player of the week after a four-touchdown performance in a 48-17 win over Northern Illinois.Sound familiar?I think we saw what it looks like, first-year Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. We got the concentrated dose. Now, well get a version of that.The Bulls, who are chasing their first 3-0 start since 2011, are 4-0 in the Carrier Dome, those victories coming when both teams were in the Big East.Other things to know when South Florida plays Syracuse on Saturday:BETTER GET READY: Syracuse has averaged 87 snaps in its first two games with Babers new up-tempo attack, and its generated an average of 484 yards. Though Louisville won handily, the Orange aattack was stopped four times by injuries to Louisville players, which came when Syracuse was driving and elicited choruses of boos from the hometown fans who figured a dose of fakery was involved. Cheap White Hydro Flask 24 oz Standard Mouth Water Bottle. .We just have to make sure were sound when it comes to technique and fundamentals, USF coach Willie Taggart said. Our guys have to get the call and be able to line up. I think with this up-tempo stuff, thats where you get in trouble is when your guys dont line up.MIRROR IMAGE: USFs Gulf Coast offense also is fast and ranks 10th nationally in scoring at 50.2 points per game, the Bulls best start ever. USF is averaging 551 yards per game and has had eight TD drives of two minutes or less. The Bulls longest touchdown drive this season is 3:56.We just get better and better, said senior Darius Tice, who rushed for a career-high 120 yards last week.MACK ATTACK BACK: South Florida tailback Marlon Mack returns after missing the previous game while going through a concussion protocol. He suffered a tough hit against Towson in the season opener. Mack needs 251 yards to match USFs career rushing record of 2,731 yards, set by Andre Hall in 2005.DYNAMIC ORANGE DUO: Etta-Tawo, a redshirt senior, and junior wideout Ervin Philips each has 20 receptions. That tops the ACC and is tied for third nationally. Syracuse is the only school with two receivers in the top 10.DANGEROUS DUNGEY: Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey leads the ACC and ranks eighth nationally in completions per game (29.5).

Football Federation Australia has punished yet another A-League manager for speaking out against referees, fining Western Sydney coach Tony Popovic $3000. Mens Black John Elliott x Nike Vandal High AH8518-001 .FFA found Popovic guilty of breaching the bodys National Code of Conduct after he took aim at referee Jarred Gillett over a missed penalty in his sides round-six 3-0 loss to Melbourne Victory.Gillett decided against awarding a penalty to the Wanderers when Jason Geria crudely tackled Jumpei Kasakumi in the box.Replays showed the young fullback missed the ball and fouled the Japanese attacker, an error A-League boss Greg ORourke named on Monday as one of 11 recorded from this seasons opening six rounds.If thats not a penalty, they should book him for diving, Popovic said post-match on Fox Sports.The Wanderers boss also made pointed reference to the clubs record with Gillett in the middle - just one win in 11 games - suggesting maybe its just a coincidence.ORourke reiterated it was vital all players and coaches consider their words carefully when offering their thoughts.Any comments direct or implied that reflect on the integrity of a referee are unacceptable and will be acted upon in line with our code of conduct, ORourke said.Respect towards match officials is not a nice to have, it is a fundamental of our game required at every level.Popovic is the fourth manager to earn FFAs ire for outbursts less than a third of the way through a season making headlines for contentious refereeing decisions.Adelaide coach Guillermo Amor on Monday copped a one-game touchline ban and must now face a tribunal to decide whether his punishment is increased after he was sent to the stands during Fridays 3-1 loss to Glory.Perth coach Kenny Lowe (two-match ban) and Victory coach Kevin Muscat ($5000 fine) have also found themselves in hot water.It comes a day after ORourke mounted a fierce defence of the leagues adjudicators in response to a weekend embroiled in controversy that saw managers relationship with officials reach boiling point.ORourke declared the standard of officiating the best the competition has seen, using FFA statistics showing that up until round six there were 11 errors recorded - an improvement on previous years.He intends to open dialogue with clubs to re-set the expectations of frustrated coaches.Popovic has seven business days to appeal. Nike Zoom Generation Wheat For Sale .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. Nike Zoom Structure 18 Womens Australia ., for the next three years with the signings on Monday of Daryl Townsend and Michael Carter. http://www.airzoomaustralia.com/nike-zoom-training-zoom-fit-agility-women-s-volt-silver-684984-700.html . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. The AFL Players Association is open to negotiating the work-life balance of footballers but wont budge on mandated days off.The delicate relationship between a players club responsibilities and life outside football looms as a sleeper issue in ongoing pay negotiations between the league and players.Sydney veteran Ted Richards revealed this week players were eager to secure a second mid-season bye, and Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley put the issue of player schedules on the agenda this week.The Brownlow medalist is frustrated at restrictions that dont allow him to provide a fully immersive training and welfare program at his club.Buckley raised the matter at the annual coaches dinner, hosted by AFL supremo Gillon McLachlan on Tuesday night, and outlined his case publicly on Thursday.The main (issue) for me is clubs being able to control their own program ... we only get access to the guys for three-and-a-half days a week, he said.Were here to win games of footy, produce a really goood program and develop great competitors that are good people as well. Nike Zoom Hypercross TR - Mens Dark Steel Grey/Team Crimson/White/Black 684635-061. Its something well keep putting our hands up for and being trusted more from the (AFL) PA and the AFL.In response, AFLPA player relations boss Brett Murphy said he had empathy for Buckleys point of view, but drew a line under their day and a half off.We are always open to providing clubs with flexibility around scheduling where there is a need, he said.However, we also need to ensure that players have sufficient time away from their clubs to develop as people and provide balance to their lives.For that reason, players are entitled to a day and a half off each week.We think this is fair and reasonable, and strikes the right balance in ensuring players are adequately prepared to play.Negotiations continue between the AFL and AFLPA over the new collective bargaining agreement. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '

Penrith could receive a huge boost ahead of Fridays all-important NRL match against the Wests Tigers, with forward Chris Grevsmuhl a chance of returning from an elbow injury. Germany Niklas Sule World Cup Jersey .Grevsmuhl missed Sundays win over Newcastle after hurting his elbow against the Sydney Roosters the previous week, but trained on Wednesday afternoon with the team.His possible return would inject more starch to a Panthers side who need to win to consolidate their spot in the top eight with just two more regular-season games to follow.Prop Reagan Campbell-Gillard wasnt so confident of Grevsmuhl making it back in time, having only just returned from a similar injury after missing four games.Im not too sure on that one. This is the first training session back since Sunday. But whatever (coach Anthony Griffin) does, Im pretty sure the boys will do a job, he said.Campbell-Gillard who, before the elbow injury, hadnt missed a NRL game since making his debut last year in round one, admitted he was still unable to straighten his arm.Its fully healed but obviously trying to get it fully straightened by the physio work, doing everything right that I can do. It should be good, he said.Ive got it strapped. I feel a bit comfortable there being supported by some strapping tape. Again, Ive just got to keep doing my rehab and getting physio treatment.For the Tigers, who sit two points behind seventh-placed Penrith in tenth spot, another loss would all but end any hope of squeezing into the finals.Panthers veteran Peter Wallace labelled Friday nights game a must-win.Its a very important game, just on the basis of where we both are on the ladder. Its our biggest game of the season to date, he said.I wouldnt say theyre finals, but the intensitys getting a bit higher each week. You expect it to go up another level this week.Wallace said the team were still smarting from the 34-26 loss in round 17 to the Tigers.We were disappointed in our effort that night. Just the execution in attack was really off and, defensively, we were off too, he said.Obviously, its do-or-die for them and were in a bit of the same boat too. Were going to have to be at our best on Friday. Germany Toni Kroos World Cup Jersey . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games.

SAN FRANCISCO -- As the stragglers stumbled into the visitors clubhouse, some New York Mets players hollered and high-fived teammates as they passed through the door. Maillot De Foot Nabil Fekir . This was just the kind of celebration that had escaped them before. Eric Young Jr. scored on shortstop Brandon Crawfords fielding error with two outs in the 16th inning, and the Mets outlasted the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in a game that ended early Tuesday morning. The Mets already had played three games of at least 15 innings this season -- and lost each one. "Ive never heard of anything like this. Its unbelievable," manager Terry Collins said. "At least were used to it." Young singled with one out and stole second to start the final rally. After he advanced to third on Daniel Murphys groundout, lefty Javier Lopez entered and intentionally walked David Wright. Crawford couldnt handle pinch-hitter Anthony Reckers grounder, allowing Young to score and handing New York the victory. The game lasted 5 hours, 26 minutes. "Weve played in some long games and we havent always come out on the winning side," Recker said. "As soon as the 10th inning started, we were like, Are we really going to do this again?" It was the longest game in time and innings the Giants had played since losing 1-0 to the Arizona Diamondbacks in 18 innings on May 9, 2001. Marco Scutaro walked leading off the bottom of the 16th inning, and Buster Posey hit a one-out single for the first five-hit game of his career. But Bobby Parnell regrouped to strike out Pablo Sandoval and retire pinch-hitter Guillermo Quiroz on a grounder for his 16th save. Posey went 5 for 8, including a two-run homer and two doubles. San Francisco has lost 12 of 14 and is a season-high eight games below .500. The Giants went 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position and stranded 18 overall -- 13 in the last six innings. "Thats as frustrating a game as weve had," manager Bruce Bochy said. Tim Lincecum and Matt Harvey each threw seven innings of three-run ball before the bullpens shut down the opposition. Harvey said a blister on his right index finger has been bothering him his last two starts but he doesnt consider it an issue. "Im just glad we won," he said. Josh Edgin (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. George Kontos (2-2) allowed the one unearned run in 2 2-3 otherwise solid innings. It was the 18th major league game to go 14 innings or more this season, two shy of last years total, according to STATS. The Mets improved to 1-3 in games of at least 15 innings. The last team to play that many in one season was the 2004 Minnesota Twins, who went 2-2, according to STATS. By the time the final out was recorded at 12:42 a.m. local time, only a few thousand fans remained from an announced sellout crowd of 41,497. The ferry back to Oakland-Alameda had blown its departing horn at 11:30 p.m., and the final BART trains left about midnight. The Giants even held a 14th-inning stretch for those who stayed. So many seagulls started to hover above the stands that the scoreboard operator asked fans to clap to try and scare them away. Both teams had chances to end the game earlier. With runners on second and third in the 11th, Crawford made a diving stop on Marlon Byrds grounder at shortstop and recovered for a perfect throw from the outfield grass. In the 12th, Sandoval snagged Omar Quintanillas liner at third and threw to first to get Kirk Nieuwenhuis for a double play. The Giants blew a gift-wrapped opportunity when Posey doubled after his fly ball bounced off the glove of Murphy backpedaling from second while Byrd tried to make a sliding catch coming in from right. Sandoval was intentionally walked before Byrd caught Hunter Pences slicing liner and Crawford flied out. Brandon Belt, batting in the third spot for the first time in his career, was 0 for 8 with five strikeouts, including the final out of the 12th inning with two runners on base. Bochy said he expects to keep Belt in that spot Tuesday night. Cole Gillespie broke his bat grounding out in the 13th with runners on second and third, and Gregor Blanco grounded out with the bases loaded in the 15th. Poseys 13th homer put the Giants ahead 2-0 in the first. Byrd singled leading off the fifth for the first hit off Lincecum, and John Bucks double sliced San Franciscos lead to 2-1. Young tripled leading off the sixth, and Murphy followed with the tying single. Murphy advanced to third on Scutaros throwing error at second base and scored when Ike Davis grounded into a double play to give the Mets a 3-2 lead. Lincecum had a season-high 11 strikeouts in seven innings. He gave up three runs, six hits and one walk. It was the 33rd time Lincecum has had at least 10 strikeouts in a game and the first time this year. But the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner was nowhere to be found in the Giants clubhouse after the game. A team spokesman said he had already left to recover -- as did many of his teammates. Other than Posey, Harvey had his way with San Franciscos lineup until late. He allowed three runs and six hits, striking out six and walking one. Pence, who made a pair of diving catches in right field, tripled leading off the seventh. The ball hit the cement near the top of the right-field wall and ricocheted back onto the field. Umpires reviewed the play and ruled that the triple stood, though the decision turned out to be an afterthought. Crawford immediately singled home Pence for the tying run. "Theres frustration," Pence said. "We want to stay as positive as we can right now. Weve got to get it done. Weve got to keep pushing to find a way to turn it around." NOTES: Posey will get Tuesday nights game off after catching 16 innings, Bochy said. ... Mets LHP Jonathon Niese (shoulder inflammation) has been cleared to start throwing again. The team expects him back at some point this season. ... Mets RHP Shaun Marcum had his right hand examined by a specialist in St. Louis. With an off day Thursday, Harvey is slated to take Marcums spot in the rotation Saturday at Pittsburgh. ... Barry Zito (4-6, 4.44 ERA) starts for the Giants against Dillon Gee (6-7, 4.45) on Tuesday.

The stakes werent quite what Houston fans were dreaming of in September, but the Cougars still made a major statement with last weeks 36-10 drubbing of a Louisville team that came to campus ranked third in the country and openly talking about a spot in the four-team college football playoff.After silencing that talk with their dominant performance, the Cougars were left to ponder what-might-have been. If they had made it to last weekend undefeated, they, too, would have had playoff hopes on their minds. But losses to Navy and Southern Methodist means that the Cougars will be spending their January elsewhere.Still, what better way to offer a state of the program address than with a dominating performance on national television.Im proud of our guys, Houston coach Tom Herman said. Im proud of our seniors to be able to say that in their junior and senior year, they are 6-0 against top 25 teams, 3-0 against top 10 teams and 2-0 against top 3 teams.They are the most winning class in the history of this great university -- theres a lot to be proud of there.The 18th-ranked Cougars (9-2, 5-2 AAC) now wind up their regular season with a trip to Memphis to take on the Tigers (7-4, 4-3). Kickoff is at noon ET Friday at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis with ABC telecasting the action.This marks the final regular-season game for the seniors Herman has been so eager to praise. While some will get looks at the next level, its still a day likely to be fraught with emotion.I cant believe it, senior linebacker Steven Taylor said. These years go by so quick. I was a redshirt freshman. Ive been here five years and its unbelievable how time flies. Im excited. I cant wait to go out there and ball out with my boys. Were going to come hard and prepare hard as well.Going on the road puts the game in a different light for the Cougars. Both of their losses have come away from home. Navy won 46-40 and SMU pulled a real shocker with a 38-16 romp in Dallaas. Maillot Antoine Griezmann 2018. We havent played as well as we liked on the road at times, Herman said., We have got to take the things that we learned the last couple of weeks in our wins and make sure they translate over to road games as well.Memphis is coming off a big 34-7 win on the road over Cincinnati.To get that seventh win is big and now it sets up a big matchup for us with a great Houston team coming in, Tigers coach Mike Norvell said. Its going to be a lot of fun here in Memphis Friday.The game could become an offensive show. It will feature the AACs top two passers in Houstons Greg Ward and Riley Ferguson of Memphis.A senior, Ward has had to contend with nagging injuries since early in the season but still has completed 67.1 percent of his passes for 284.1 yards a game.
