FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Police in Massachusetts are seeking the publics help in identifying a man who they say stole a helmet autographed by the Super Bowl XLIX champion New England Patriots from a bar near Gillette Stadium.The theft occurred Aug. 11 at Skipjacks in Foxborough. Surveillance video from the restaurant shows a man in a Tom Brady jersey climb over the bar, take the helmet and wrap it in his jersey before walking out.Police say the man also left without paying his bill.Skipjacks general manager says the thief called the next day to confess and said he would ship the helmet back to the bar. But the helmet still hasnt been returned.Police say the bartender remembers the culprits license. Hes reportedly from the Wilmington area. Warrington coach Tony Smith believes the short-term loss of utility back Stefan Ratchford will be a bigger blow than the departure of Chris Sandow. Sandow has walked out on the club despite having 12 months left on his contract while Ratchford sustained a serious knee injury while training with England in the recent Four Nations Series. Sky Sports Black Friday sale Hey! Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price! He was about to do some stretching and squatted down to get ready when his knee locked, Smith said. It was all a bit of a shock because when he went in to see the consultant he was under the impression it was only going to be a bit of floating bone but it was worse than that. So he went in thinking it was going to be a couple of weeks operation and came out with a four-month operation. Scrum-half Chris Sandow has elected to cut short his contract with Warrington Id say hell miss at least the first four games and thats more of a blow than Chrissy. I was a bit shatttered when I heard about that one.dddddddddddd. That has more impact on us.Regarding Sandows decision to stay in Australia rather than return to the Wolves, Smith was phlegmatic about the whole affair.He said: I cant say Im heartbroken or even surprised or disappointed, the only disappointment is that it was a little bit late in our off season before he told his manager. Warrington head coach Tony Smith salutes the supporters after their Challenge Cup semi-final win over Wakefield Ive no idea what he will do, he might be taking up a boxing career, who knows? Chrissy wouldnt have planned his next move, he just does things off the top of his head.Im pretty confident well come up with a suitable replacement.Meanwhile, Smith has confirmed that loose forward Ben Harrison is not part of his plans for the 2017 season.Hell go out on a year-long loan, the coach said. Hes working through that at the moment.Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price. Hurry, offer ends December 4!

CINCINNATI -- Bengals first-round pick William Jackson III will miss time as he rehabs a torn pectoral muscle, a source confirmed to ESPNs Adam Schefter on Tuesday. It appears his rookie season could be in jeopardy.The cornerback, selected 24th overall this spring, was hurt late in Cincinnatis practice Monday afternoon, and he wasnt present at Paul Brown Stadium on Tuesday. A source also told ESPN that the team may look to get a second opinion on the injury.While the injury will certainly delay Jacksons growth into the Bengals system, it shouldnt have a major effect on the teams plans at the cornerback position this season. Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick?were already slated to start the season at the boundary corner positions, and third-year corner Darqueze Dennard has been expected to take the majority of reps at the slot corner position in nickel defenses.Dennard (ankle) was also hurt Monday, but defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said he didnt anticipate that injury keeping Dennard out of training camp for long.Jackson was drafted in the first round in hopes of helping the Bengals bolster their long-term secondary depth. Although Jones was signed to a three-year extension this March, he is coming up on his 33rd birthday next month. Kirkpatrick could hit free agency after this season if the Bengals dont agree to a new contract sooner.At Houston, Jackson led all college defensive players with 28 defended passes in 2015. He also had five interceptions last year, including two in a 10-tackle effort in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl win over Florida State.If Jackson is out for a significant amount of time, the Bengals could return to the idea of re-signing free agent corner Leon Hall.The 31-year-old was a Bengals first-rounder in 2007. Cincinnati let him hit free agency this offseason after he counted $9.6 million against the Bengals cap last season. A pair of Achilles injuries in 2011 and 2014 slowed Hall in recent seasons. Still, his possible return would give the Bengals a veteran on the back end of the cornerback depth chart who already knows their system and staff. OGDEN, Utah -- Brady May scored on a 2-yard run, the sophomore fullbacks first career carry, in the fourth quarter to give Weber State a 22-15 victory over Cal Poly on Saturday.Mays touchdown completed a 13-play, 58-yard drive and kept alive the Wildcats hopes for an at-large bid into the FCS playoffs.On their final drive, the Mustangs (6-4, 4-3 Big Sky) reached the Weber State 31-yard line before a fourth-down pass went incomplete.Jadrian Clark threw first-quarter touchdown passes of 18 yards to Anddrew Vollert and 16 yards to Drew Batchelor, and Taylor Hentze added a 33-yard field goal to give Weber State (6-4, 5-2) a 15-0 lead in the second quarter.dddddddddddd.Joe Protheroe scored on a 1-yard run in the final minute of the first half and DJ Peluso on a 19-yard run in the third quarter with his conversion run tying the game.Clark was 23-of-32 passing for 186 yards. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

So, what if the NHL walks away from the Olympics for the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea?USA Hockey and Hockey Canada officials are making contingency plans, combing European rosters for players who might be able to don their nations jerseys and throw down for gold.Youll see some of Team Canadas thinking on display with its entry in the Spengler Cup later this month, which will mostly feature Canadians who are playing in Switzerland. Earlier this fall, GM Sean Burke took Canadians from the Kontinental Hockey League, and Swedish, German and Finnish leagues to the Deutschland Cup tournament.The U.S. situation is a little more fluid.Fewer Americans play in elite leagues in Europe compared to Canadians, and the U.S. doesnt take part in the Spengler Cup and only plays in the Deutschland Cup on odd-numbered years, which makes deciphering a potential roster a little more difficult.Sources familiar with contingency plans told ESPN.com that top American college players could also factor into the discussion, but they would have to commit to remaining in college next season and be given leave to join Team USA during the Olympics.As for American Hockey League players, commissioner Dave Andrews said its still uncertain what kind of access Olympic nations might have to AHL players, but he suspects decisions would be made on a team-by-team basis.That said, given the competitive nature of the NHL, its difficult to imagine top-end AHL players being allowed to leave their teams for three weeks if parent clubs in the NHL thought they might need to call them up.Youll see that we included Mason Raymond and Mike Richards on our Canadian roster, but a year from now is it possible that?Shane Doan and?Jarome Iginla might be playing in their final NHL seasons, could stay in shape and could form a leadership core of a Canadian team? The same thing could occur for potential Team USA captain?Brian Gionta?and?two-time Olympian goalie?Ryan Miller.For fun, lets see what non-NHL rosters would look like for Canada and the U.S. as of today.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Boise State expected its receivers to have a big day against New Mexico, and they did.Brett Rypien threw five touchdown passes -- three to Cedrick Wilson and two to Thomas Sperbeck -- and No. 19 Boise State overwhelmed New Mexico 49-21 on Friday night.We expected a lot of cover zero, man, so we knew if we had the time to throw, we would get open, he said. It getting a lot easier for us to see the coverages and whats coming and the blitzes. And I think our o-line did a great job picking it up.The Broncos (5-0, 2-0 Mountain West) scored touchdowns on seven consecutive possessions. New Mexico (2-3, 1-1) scored on its second possession, and didnt reach the end zone again until the midway through the fourth quarter.Rypien was 21 of 28 for 391 yards. Sperbeck had nine receptions for 198 yards and Wilson had nine catches for 167 yards.Rypien said it was gratifying to have the two receivers complementing each other.We got into a rhythm, Rypien said. The game plan called for us to make plays. The first four games we relied on Jeremy (McNichols), but we had to step up and we did.In the last two seasons, Sperbeck has totaled 29 catches and 479 yards receiving against New Mexico. His performance last season wasnt enough to prevent the Lobos upset, but it was a conference record for yards.The unexpected loss last season wasnt much of a motivating factor, but it did make the victory feel a little sweeter, according to Sperbeck.It is a little bit of factor, he said. It does feel good to get a win against anybody, obviously. But it feels little better since they beat us last year, but you cant think too much into that. I think we did a great of preparation all week and it showed (Friday).It helped that Boise State was stifling New Mexico early.When the defense stands its ground like it did (Friday), it takes lot of pressure off the offense, Sperbeck said. It allows us to operate more smoothly. Theres not as much pressure to move the ball down the field. We can take the shots we want.THE TAKEAWAYS:Although Boise State downplayed last years loss to the Lobos was any kind of motivation, the Broncos certainly played like they meant to put New Mexico in its place.A lot of guys didnt really like how the Lobos celebrated last year so I think it was kind of a chip on our shoulder for last year, Wilson said. We played pretty hard.This was the first game this season that New Mexico did not have a double-digit lead at some point in the game.The Lobos came into the game having allowed nine scoring plays of 40 or more yards and Boise State added two more to that total.UP NEXTBoise State: Hosts Colorado State on Oct. 15. The Broncos have readily handled the Rams in all five meetings since joining the conference. The closest game was 42-30 in 2013. Coming up, Boise State faces BYU at home Oct. 20 in a nationally televised game that could be the Broncos best chance to make a lasting impression against a name opponent -- at least until the regular-season finale Nov. 25 against Air Force.New Mexico: The Lobos travel to Dallas to face Air Force in the Cotton Bowl. For New Mexico, a loss to the Falcons would effectively end its chances at winning the Mountain Division.KEY NUMBERSBoise State had 391 yards passing, 368 of those coming in the first half.We could have had more if we cut them loose, said Broncos coach Bryan Harsin. This show could have gone on all night.New Mexico became the first team this season to top the century mark rushing against the Broncos, totaling 382. Lobos quarterback Lamar Jordan became the first player to rush for 100 yards against Boise State, finishing with 139, but he completed just four passes for 39 yards.INJURY REPORTBoise State suffered no injures of note.New Mexico played the game without leading rusher Teryion Gipson, who injured his hamstring last week against San Jose State. Cornerback Isaiah Brown was lost to a foot injury in the first half. He was replaced by true freshman Elijah Lilly, who Lobos coaches had hoped to redshirt.LAST WORDI tried to just block it out as much as I could and focus on the game, Rypien said, speaking of losing his grandmother Terry Rypien this week. Now I can go home and focus on family stuff that I need to focus on. It was hard the first part of the week, but having the team around me and the coaches around me made it lot better. NEW YORK -- Karolina Pliskova came into the US Open with the dubious distinction of being the only woman currently ranked in the top 20 never to make a Grand Slam round of 16.She has now blown past that milestone, routing 18-year-old Ana Konjuh 6-2, 6-2 in just 57 minutes Wednesday to reach the semifinals.To be honest, I dont care at what time it came. Im just happy that its now and that it came, the 24-year-old Czech said of finally making a deep run at her 18th career major. There are people saying that I could be there earlier, but right now I feel great and I feel its the right time for having the results like this.She lost just one point on her serve in the first set Wednesday and never faced a break point.I was surprised and I was still waiting even in the first set; even in the second set I was still waiting -- [thinking] some complications going to come, Pliskova said. But, well, Im not going to complain.Pliskova broke Konjuhs serve in the matchs opening game, forcing the 92nd-ranked teenager to play from behind right from the start.Her serve is just too good, Konjuh said. Today on the court, she found her rhythm and took the opportunities that I gave her.The 6-foot-1 Pliskovva has the most aces on the womens tour this season, though that wasnt how she dominated Wednesday.dddddddddddd Konjuh, also a big server, had more aces in the match, in fact (4-3). But she got only half of her first serves in and was broken four times, with four double-faults and 27 unforced errors.Pliskova, who rallied to beat sixth-seeded Venus Williams in three sets Monday, has now won 10 straight matches, riding the momentum of a breakthrough title at Cincinnati. She defeated second-ranked Angelique Kerber in the final there.Konjuh can take plenty of momentum away from Flushing Meadows, too. After what had been a disappointing, injury-plagued season, her ranking is projected to soar to a career-best No. 51. She hadnt been past the third round at a major before this tournament and upset fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska on Monday for her first win against a top-10 opponent.The 10th-seeded Pliskova will on Thursday face No. 1 Serena Williams, who beat?No. 5 Simona Halep 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.Unfortunately, Im in the part of the draw with Serena, Pliskova said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

The Atlanta Falcons?announced Tuesday they have?released veteran receiver Devin Hester, the most accomplished return man in NFL history.Hester, 33, told ESPN in a text message that he wants to continue playing but declined to discuss his release or any potential landing spots.Hester missed the first 11 games of the 2015 season as a result of a toe injury, for which he had surgery in January.?He did not participate in any offseason activities while recovering.He passed his physical, Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said of Hester. It was a football decision for us in the very end. Again, not to be evasive about it, we wish him all the luck. And we think its best for the organization for us to move forward.Falcons coach Dan Quinn said veteran Eric Weems is capable of handling both the kickoff and punt return duties with Hester gone. Justin Hardy, Nick Williams?and rookie Devin Fuller are also in the punt return mix, while running back Tevin Coleman, Fuller and Hardy will be involved in the kickoff returns.Hester, a former second-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears, holds the NFL record for return touchdownss (20), a record he set with the Falcons against the?Tampa Bay Buccaneers?during the 2014 season. Stephan El Shaarawy Jersey. Hester made the Pro Bowl that year with the Falcons.Hester, a four-time Pro Bowl selection overall, also holds the NFL record for punt return touchdowns (14).He is the second high-profile player the Falcons have released going into the 2016 season. They also released Roddy White, the franchises all-time leading receiver, in March.Hester suffered a turf toe injury after the third preseason game at Miami last season and was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return, but his inability to push off and cut made him functionally ineffective through the final five games of the season. Hester returned nine kickoffs for 235 yards with a long of 35 yards. He returned eight punts for 34 yards with a long of 11.He wasnt used on offense last season.Hester was due to make $3 million in 2016 with cap figure of $3,833,334.

The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. http://www.soccerbrazilonline.com/Renato-Augusto-Copa-America-Jersey/ . But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. LOS ANGELES -- Scott Van Slyke became the fourth Dodgers player to match Matt Kemps season total for home runs since the two-time All-Star slugger hit his first of the year April 24 in New York. Thats still the only one Kemp has after 137 at-bats. Kemp had two singles for Los Angeles on Sunday in a 5-3 victory over the Miami Marlins, giving him 1,000 career hits and extending his hitting streak to 11 games. But manager Don Mattingly insists its only a matter of time before the homers come in bunches for Kemp, who hit a career-high 39 in 2011. "I feel like hes still going to hit his homers," Mattingly said. "Theyre going to come, but when youre forcing them, they dont seem to come. Thats the one thing I dont want him to do -- try to force home runs. When hes having good swings and starts to get his hits, the power is right there with it." Dodgers starter Chris Capuano (1-2) allowed a run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings with seven strikeouts and one walk. Last Monday, in his second start of the season and first off the disabled list, the left-hander gave up six runs over four innings against Arizona and threw a mini-tantrum in the dugout after being taken out. "Its been a bit of a nightmare the past week. Its nice to wake up from it," Capuano said. "I was trying to watch some of the good games I had last year, look at what I did to be successful and try to stick with my strengths instead of worrying about getting to the hitters weaknesses. I think its a good approach with any lineup, not trying to get too caught up in a hitters weaknesses. I had a pretty good changeup working today. And with the humidity and the moisture, I had that pitch working." Capuano started against the Marlins for the first time since last Aug. 12, when he threw eight innings of two-hit ball in a 5-0 win at Miami. "The last time I remember him being a little more fastball-friendly, to be honest. Today he just kind of off-speeded us to death and did a good job mixing his pitches," said Marlins centre fielder Justin Ruggiano, who homered off Capuano in the sixth. "We swung at a lot of pitches we shouldnt have been swinging at, so that shows you that they were pretty good off-speed pitches. But weve got to take some of the blame for that, too, because weve got to get the ball up on him." Brandon League finished in a non-save situation, giving up a two-run double by Adeiny Hechavarria with two outs in the ninth after allowing a game-deciding home run in each of his previous two appearances. The Dodgers, who ended an eight-game slide Saturday night with a 7-1 victory, took two of three in the series. This is the first time theyve won consecutiive games against the same team since April 10-11 at San Diego. Alex Sandro Brazil Jersey. . Los Angeles remains last in the NL West with a 15-21 record and trails division-leading San Francisco by seven games. "Well, thats two," Mattingly said. "Once youve lost eight in a row, it doesnt sound like much to win a series. But its a start. Thats the way it feels." Van Slyke, recalled from Triple-A on Friday, opened the scoring against rookie Tom Koehler (0-1) with his third big league homer leading off the second. "That home run was off a guy Id actually faced a lot the last two to three years (in the minors)," Koehler said. "He kind of sped up his bat with a cutter right there and he did a good job of staying on it. But the first runs not the one that kills you, so the key there is basically making sure thats the only one. And that team, with all the veterans they have, if you let them start building momentum, they can put up a crooked number real quick." Koehler threw 79 pitches over five innings in his second big league start and first this season, allowing two runs and seven hits. The 26-year-old right-hander was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on April 19 and made six relief appearances before replacing a struggling Wade LeBlanc in the rotation. Koehler faced a lineup loaded with left-handed hitters except for Kemp, Van Slyke and Tim Federowicz, who were a combined 4 for 7 against him. During his stint in the bullpen, righties were 1 for 23. "I dont feel much different than if I would have been starting consistently. So I guess thats a good sign, and now I can build off it," Koehler said. After Nick Puntos sacrifice fly gave Los Angeles a 2-0 lead in the fourth, Ruggiano got the Marlins on the board in the sixth with his seventh homer -- all on the road. The Dodgers extended the margin to 5-1 during a three-run seventh, as Mike Dunn gave up RBI singles to Van Slyke and Carl Crawford and a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Andre Ethier that followed an intentional walk to Kemp. The first two runs in the inning were charged to Jon Rauch. NOTES: Miami RF Marcell Ozuna turned Kemps first-inning fly ball into a double play with a perfect, one-hop throw to third to get Crawford after he tagged up. ... Marlins reserve OF Austin Kearns, who has eight hits in 14 career at-bats against Capuano, was moved from the bereavement list to the restricted list. He will be spending more time with his mother, who had a heart attack on May 5. ... Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez, who is 14 for 28 with runners in scoring position, got the day off because of persistent discomfort in his neck, which affects him in the field but not at the plate. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Arsenals Hector Bellerin is out for four weeks with an ankle injury, Arsene Wenger has revealed. Sergio Aguero Manchester City Jersey . The Gunners boss said a strong tackle from Tottenhams Danny Rose was responsible for ligament damage which will sideline the right-back for an important run of games, starting at Manchester United on Saturday.Alexis Sanchez will need assessing ahead of Old Trafford after a hamstring problem kept him out of one of two Chile World Cup qualifiers during the international break. And there is still no date set for the return of Santi Cazorla, who is yet to take part in training a month after suffering a recurrence of his Achilles trouble.Hector is out for four weeks, Wenger said at his press conference on Thursday. He got injured in the last 10 seconds against Tottenham in a very strong tackle from Rose. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd-Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price Wenger had urged Chile not to play Sanchez against Uruguay this week after he sat out their goalless draw with Colombia, but in the end the Arsenal forward started and scored twice before he was substituted in the 84th minute. Why Arsenal will miss Bellerin We examine Hector Bellerins importance to Arsenal after his injury blow. He texted us that hes in good shape, said Wenger, who stopped short of criticising Chiles decision. We have to wait and see tomorrow morning to see if he can be involved in the squad. Alexis Sanchez will be assessed on Friday ahead of the trip to Manchester United What I will consider is the risk of injury because he played recovering from a hamstring injury. It depends a lot on the honesty of the player.Bellerin, meanwhile, will miss the Champions League game with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday and must now be considered a doubt for the Premier League trip to Manchester City on December 18. Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchezs fitness will be assessed 24 hours before their game at Manchester United, according to manager Arsene Wenger Mathieu Debuchy has been out of the picture all season so Carl Jenkinson, who last month made his first Arsenal appearance since May 2014, is in line for a run in the side.Cazorlas absence is also a concern, and Arsenal have failed to win two of their three league games since the Spain midfielder was injured.Wenger said: Cazorla is still out.

Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans.  The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- The 2013 high school senior class was one of the most talented in recent womens basketball history.It had a plethora of talented guards and post players led by Diamond DeShields, Kaela Davis and Taya Reimer. So far, though, the biggest mark the group has left at the collegiate level is the high transfer rate among its top stars.Six of the top 10 players from that high school class have switched colleges from where they began. DeShields was the test case, leaving North Carolina after a stellar freshman year and heading to Tennessee. Soon after, other top players started transferring.No. 2 Kaela Davis went from Georgia Tech to South Carolina. Fourth-ranked Taya Reimer left Notre Dame to head to Michigan State. Lexie Brown left Maryland for Duke after guiding the Terrapins to the Final Four in her first two years at the school.At the end of the day its all about people being happy, said DeShields, who left North Carolina after a stellar freshman year. Were all friends and a lot of them were texting me after I left to see what it was like.Brown, DeShields and Davis all grew up in Atlanta a few miles apart, playing on the same AAU team. Brown and Davis faced off last Sunday when South Carolina visited Duke. Browns team got the better end of the matchup, handing the Gamecocks their first loss of the season.I think its weird, a lot of the transfers have been players who played a lot or were the focal point of the team or the face of the team, Brown said. Sometimes you forget theres more to being a college athlete than the sport that you play. At the end of the day its about your happiness. I know some of those girls and they werent happy and it might not have even been the basketball situation.All the players had different reasons for leaving their first college choice. Many of them committed early to college, some, like Brown, before the end of their sophomore year of high school. Others like Stephanie Mavunga, Gray and Jessica Washington left North Carolina over fears of impending NCAA sanctions to the school.We all had our dream schools when we were 15 or 16, Brown said. Now at 20 and 21 were at a different school then we would have imagined.Individually many of the players have done well so far at their new schools, putting up strong numbers. It will be seen if they can lead their new programs to conference or NCAA titles. Davis, who was an all-conference guard at Georgia Tech, has flourished so far in her first year at South Carolina. She said when she left Georgia Tech that she wanted to win at the highest level and compete for a national championship. Shes providedd an outside shooting threat to compliment the Gamecocks strong interior game. Bacary Sagna Jersey. South Carolina coach Dawn Staley also took in seventh-ranked Allisha Gray from North Carolina.You definitely do your homework and talk to the kids and see why they left, Staley said. In the old days you would get transfers who just werent happy with playing time or such. Now its gotten a lot different.Ohio State has also become an oasis for transfers. Kevin McGuffs 12th-ranked team has benefited from the addition of three transfers this season in Mavunga (North Carolina), Sierra Calhoun (Duke) and Linnae Harper (Kentucky).I think were going to keep seeing it, McGuff said. Its just hard. I think were in a generation when expectations arent met quickly, then kids move on to the next thing. I dont think thats going away anytime soon.The numbers support the Ohio State coachs thoughts. In 2013-14, 9.2 percent of womens basketball players transferred according to the NCAA. Thats up from 6.8 percent a decade ago.Now, with social media, there is instant access to everything. You have all these fans like why arent you playing at so and so, Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. Fifteen years ago the kids didnt have all that extra pressure for them. Now its a lot easier to take the easy way out.Walz and other coaches have said theres not too much that schools can do to change this. All they can keep doing is be honest with kids when they are recruiting them.You cant change who you are or who your program is, Walz said.When schools try to block a transfer it hasnt gone well. In one high profile case, Kansas State didnt want to let star guard Leticia Romero transfer a few years ago when the coaching staff was let go at the end of the 2014 season, claiming tampering. In the end, they relented and let her transfer to Florida State.While no class may ever match the 2013 high school senior one as far as the high profile transfers, the numbers arent going to change any time soon.The culture has changed now, Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie said. Now, you get to sit out a year, lift weights and then get two more years to play. You dont have to deal with difficulty if you dont want to. The word transfer is no longer a bad word. It used to be your family would say `youre committed, youre going to stick it out. That doesnt happen as much anymore.---AP Sports Writer Pete Iacobelli in Columbia, South Carolina contributed to this story.---Follow Doug on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dougfeinberg Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

MILWAUKEE -- Gordon Beckhams fly ball in the 12th inning Monday night was deep enough in center field to make for an easy scorers decision.Matt Kemp scored from third after Keon Broxton dropped Beckhams fly, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3.Man, he put a good swing on that ball, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said. He knocked the heck out of it. It was almost a great catch in center field. He did exactly what he needed to do, get the ball in the air right there.With the bases loaded and nobody out, Beckham ripped Carlos Torres pitch to the warning track, and Broxton dropped it. An error was given to Broxton, but Beckham was awarded a sacrifice fly and an RBI.I faced him the last at-bat and hit a ball decent, Beckham said. I just tried to duplicate that. I got a pitch over the plate and was able to get it done.Kemp drew a walk off Torres (2-2) to start the 12th and went to third on a ground-rule double to right-center by Nick Markakis. An intentional walk to Adonis Garcia loaded the bases.Brewers reliever Blaine Boyer came on to work out of the bases-loaded jam with no further damage.Brandon Cunniff (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings to earn his first win. Jim Johnson stranded the tying run at second base for his ninth save. Relievers Jose Ramirez, Mauricio Cabrera, Cunniff and Johnson combined for six scoreless innings.Ramirez was dialed in, Snitker said. So was Brandon. They all were good. They have been. They have been handing the ball off to each other and picking each other up for awhile now.Rookie Rob Whalen made his second start this season and pitched six innings of three-run ball, allowing five hits and a walk while striking out seven. Whalen got the win in his major league debut on Aug. 3 despite allowing four runs in five innings against the Pirates.I pitched with a lot more confidence, Whalen said. I wasnt as nervous or jittery. I was just trying to be as relaxed as possible.Zach Davies allowed three runs and eight hits over seven innings. The right-hander gave up homers to Markakis and A.J. Pierzynski.The 0-2 (pitch) to Markakis wasnt high enough or in enough for 0-2, Davies said. It was a good pitch but not for that count. The one to Pierzynski was a good pitch but hes a strong enough guy that if he sits on it, its out. Frustrated a little bit with my outing but at the same time, I can take some positives from it.Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado tied it 3-3 with a two-run homer in the fifth inning.I was a little ticked off about that, Whalen said. I made a decent pitch. A lot of times that sinker gets hit into the ground there, but these are big league hitters. I got too much of the plate and he put a charge on it.STILL STREAKINGBraves CF Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to a career-best 19 games with a two-out single off Davies in the fifth. SS Erick Aybar pushed his hitting streak to 13 games with a single off Corey Knebel in the eighth.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: RHP Chris Withrow went on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. He was sent back to Atlanta for further examination.Brewers: RHP Junior Guerra was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. RHP Wily Peralta was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Guerras scheduled start Tuesday. ... OF Domingo Santana went 0 for 4 in his first game of a rehab assignment with Class A Wisconsin.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Tyrell Jenkins (1-2, 4.33 ERA) will make his sixth career start when he faces the Brewers on Tuesday. The rookie has allowed just one earned run over 12 innings in his last two starts.Brewers: Peralta (4-7, 6.68 ERA) will be making his first start in the majors since June 11. Milwaukees opening day starter had just two quality starts in 13 outings before being sent to Triple-A. VILLANOVA, Pa. -- Ryan Arcidiacono strode into the Pavilion with a national championship trophy raised high over his head and a bold decree for the Villanova fans stuffing the gym.Were going to go back-to-back, Arcidiacono told the roaring students. Im putting the pressure on right now.Pressure?The Wildcats are addicted to pressure and ready for a repeat -- but first it was time to party and celebrate the 2016 national championship.Lets get ready to rock this house, coach Jay Wright bellowed to the crowd.The Wildcats unveiled the national championship banner and received their rings Friday night at a students-only ceremony that saw the team dancing and dunking, and even featured a little jig from 81-year-old former coach Rollie Massimino.Wright seemed to have a catch in his voice when he presented Massimino with a national championship ring. Massimino, who led the Wildcats to the `85 title, hired Wright as an assistant in 1987 and the two have been tight for 30 years.The Wildcats even raised a new and modern 1985 championship banner to match the one in the rafters for 2016.Arcidiacono, cut last week by the San Antonio Spurs, received one of the loudest ovations from the 5,000-plus fans who? lined up hours before the doors opened for the campus ceremony. Arcidiacono made the pass to Kris Jenkins for the biggest shot in program history -- his buzzer-beating 3-pointer in a 77-74 win over North Carolina in the national championship game.The Wildcats marched out in two single-file lines with heads bowed and a hand on a teammates shoulder. Villanova senior forward Darryl Reynolds told the fans all of ouur lives matter to start the ceremony.ddddddddddddJosh Hart, the Big East preseason player of the year, took the mic and yelled, Whose house it?!Our house! fans screamed back.You all show some love for my brother Kris Jenkins, Hart said.Jenkins received a massive ovation when he walked out for the celebration. Massimino shuffled his feet for a short dance when he was introduced to the crowd by ESPN announcer Seth Greenberg.Wright climbed the ladder used to cut the nets in Houston and tossed T-shirts to the crowd.It hits you in different phases, Wright said. Its been over for me. But you kind of relive it again tonight.Wildcat fans hurled blue and white streamers on the court after the first basket of a scrimmage and Wright called the play-by-play action from the bench. He made the losing blue team that included Hart and starting guard Jalen Brunson get down for 10 push-ups because they lost.Then rapper Wiz Khalifa got the joint jumping.The Wildcats always close their Hoops Mania night with one of the biggest stars in hip-hop. Drake, 50 Cent and Nicki Minaj have all performed before at Hoops Mania. The tradition continued with Khalifa as students stormed the court for the best standing-room-only spot to watch him perform.But the Wildcats went old school for the banner celebration, blasting Kool and the Gangs Celebration as the players danced on the court.That was a great celebration of last year, Wright said, and we want you guys to keep partying as long as you want to. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

WASHINGTON -- The final buzzer sounded, and Marylands players stormed the court to celebrate an improbable win over neighboring Georgetown.It didnt matter that it was only the second game of the season, or that neither team was ranked. The Terrapins had just erased a nine-point deficit over the span of 2 1/2 minutes, and it was time to revel in the moment.We just kept fighting, said Maryland guard Melo Trimble, who capped a 22-point performance by sinking two free throws with 7.6 seconds remaining in a 76-75 victory Tuesday night.Georgetown led 68-59 with 2:21 to go before the Terrapins used a game-ending 17-7 run.We beat a great team tonight, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. Except for fouling, we really guarded well.Maryland (2-0) limited the Hoyas (1-1) to 16 field goals but was outscored 37-17 at the foul line. The Terps won despite going 7 for 27 from beyond the arc and being whistled for 32 fouls.It was 75-72 when Trimble scored on a drive to get Maryland within a point. Tre Campbell then stepped out of bounds for the Hoyas after being pressured in the back court.This is how crazy basketball is: Im yelling foul at the top of my lungs, and he steps out of bounds, Turgeon said. We were very fortunate tonight.Trimble was subsequently fouled while receiving the long inbound pass, made both foul shots, and Terps freshman Kevin Huerter blocked a driving shot by Jagan Mosely just before the final buzzer.While the Terrapins celebrated, the Hoyas somberly trudged off the court.We have to grow. We have to get better. We have to learn from our mistakes, coach John Thompson III said. Just too many mental errors down at the end.L.J. Peak scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half for Georgetown and Rodney Pryor added 14.THE RIVALRY RENEWEDMaryland beat the Hoyas 75-71 last season and, with this victory, leads the series 38-27. This marked the first time Georgetown hosted Maryland since the 1993-94 season, even though the schools are only 20 miles apart.FAB FRESHMENMaryland received a huge contribution from its first-year players. In addition to getting a huge defensive play from Huerter, the Terps got 17 points from Justin Jackson and 11 from Anthony Cowan, including four free throws in the final 19 seconds.MELO SHINESTrimble scored 22 points in Marylands opener, an unimpressive 62-56 win over American that dropped the Terrapins out of the top 25.Maryland needed every one of his 22 points against Georgetown.Hes an outstanding player, Thompson said. He did what good players do -- he made plays.BIG PICTUREMaryland: The Terps showed vast improvement from their disappointing showing against American, providing evidence that this freshman-laden team will get better as the season progresses.Georgetown: The Hoyas received an ideal tune-up for the rigorous, physical play that lies ahead in the Big East. Georgetowns 37 for 42 showing at the foul line showed it knows how to take advantage of an overly aggressive defense. They do, however, need work at closing games.UP NEXTMaryland resumes play Thursday night at home against St. Marys (Md.) College, a Division III school that competes in the Capital Athletic Conference.Georgetown faces visiting Arkansas State on Thursday night at McDonough Arena, the teams on-campus facility. Herbie Blash will step down as the FIAs deputy race director at the end of the current season after two decades in the role.Blashs tenure in F1 started in 1965, working with privateer Lotus entrant Rob Walker, before becoming race engineer to Jochen Rindt three years later. He was team manager at Brabham between 1972 and 1988.After spells as sporting director at Brabham and Yamaha, Blash became FIA deputy race director, a role he has held ever since. At the end of the season he will replaced by Laurent Mekies, who joined the FIA as safety director in 2014.FIA president Jean Todt paid tribute to Blash, saying: I would personally like to thank Herbie for all of his hard work for the FIA over the past 21 years, and especially for his contribution in maintaining Formula Ones place at the pinnacle of motor sport. Along with [race director] Charlie [Whiting], Herbie has been instrumental in the seamless running of grand prix races for over two decades, and we are pleased that he will continue to work with the FIA in future.Replacing someone with Herbies immense experience was never going to be easy. However,, we are fortunate to be able to appoint Laurent Mekies to this position.dddddddddddd Laurent brings a wealth of Formula One experience, and has been responsible for driving the FIAs safety agenda since joining us.Combining his strong Formula One history and work as the FIAs Safety Director, I am confident that he will ensure that the FIAs flagship single-seater championship continues to set the benchmark for race management and safety -- a status that his predecessor, Herbie, can take great pride in helping to nurture.Charlie Whiting, who has worked as the FIAs race director since 1997, said: I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to Herbie for his years of tireless work for our sport. It has been a huge pleasure to be alongside him for almost two decades.Of course Herbie will be hard to replace but, with Laurents extensive experience in F1, Im sure he will be a worthy replacement, he will also be able to bring a new dimension of experience to our team of F1 officials. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Talks for a much-mooted fight between Amir Khan and Kell Brook are underway, says Eddie Hearn, though the promoter says there is still a very, very long way to go before an agreement is made.For the first time, however, Hearn is adamant there is a real desire from both fighters to finally secure a date.Matchrooms Hearn is exploring a possible fight between the two -- which would be Britains biggest outside of the heavyweight division -- for May 2017.After years of Brook aggressively pursuing his rival, Khan recently became the aggressor on Twitter when, in a post referring to the IBF welterweight champion, he wrote: Ready when you are.Hearn believes Brooks recent fight with Gennady Golovkin has grown his profile to the extent Khan is finally tempted to face him, but has also stressed that previous negotiations have progressed further than the present ones without actually succeeding.Khan recognises the size of the fight, hes up for the challenge, Hearn said.Kells value has increased considerably, and there seems to be a real desire from both sides to get it done, but weve been here before.Weve held talks before, but theres never been the calling out from Amir that there is now, so thats why I say there seems a real desire from both sides. Not just both sides but both fighters.Theres a very, very long way to go, but well work quietly behind closed doors to try to finally get a fight over the line that I believe has to happen.Its still early days. Weve been further down the road before in terms of negotiations than we are now, and I was confident then. Im hopeful rather than confident. But when both fighters are calling each other out, its always a good sign.One possible reason Khan, 30, could be tempted is the likelihood Brook will struggle to return to the 147 pound welterweight limit having challenged Golovkin at middleweight.In Khans past fight, against Canelo Alvarez, was also fought at middleweight. Like Brook, he was stopped, but unlike Brook he has no history of struggling to make 147 pounds.Hearn insists Brook, also 30, planned to return to welterweight regardless, perhaps to defend his title against Americas Errol Spence, and that both the fighter and those around him are confident he can still make weight.When we had our meeting a couple of weeks ago the plan was very much I dont want to vacate my title, therefore Im staying at welterweight, Hearn said.Hes spoken to a nutritionist, to his team, and we feel like he can make welterweight. Can he be as effective as at 154 pounds? We dont know, but he can make welterweight.This was all so he could fight Errol Spence, before the Khan fight looked possible.Khans a big name, has a high profile. There are other options for him as there are for Brook. MINNEAPOLIS -- After emergency surgery for a detached retina caused him to miss the first game of his NFL career Thursday night, Mike Zimmers health appears to be turning a corner for the better.Zimmer had another operation on the eye Friday, after a follow-up appointment Friday morning, but it appears he could return to work next week, according to a league source.Zimmer did not coach in the Vikings 17-15 loss against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night, one day after he had emergency surgery on his right eye -- his third operation in November on his eye.?His surgery might also prevent him from flying to the Vikings Dec. 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Zimmer had told NBC before Thursdays game that there was a contingency plan in place to drive him to Jacksonville if he wasnt ready to fly.If all goes well following Fridays surgery, though, Zimmer could return to the Vikings before the Jaguars game. Zimmer is scheduled to conduct his regular Wednesday news conference aafter the team returns to practice Tuesday, so it appears the team is planning for Zimmers return, barring any setbacks.ddddddddddddSpecial-teams coordinator Mike Priefer filled in for Zimmer on Thursday night, carrying out the plan put together by Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman. Afterward, Priefer said he would be honored to be the interim head coach for another game, but added, I hope Im not needed in that capacity.The Vikings have lost six of their past seven games after a 5-0 start and could fall two games behind the Detroit Lions in the NFC North if the Lions win at New Orleans on Sunday. A favorable finish to their schedule, though, gives the Vikings a chance of winning out and possibly making the playoffs with a 10-6 record. Their final four opponents -- Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Green Bay and Chicago -- have a combined record of 14-30. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
