WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Fran Tarkenton Jersey . -- When Purdue wide receivers coach Gerad Parker was promoted to interim head coach on Oct. 16, replacing fired Darrell Hazell, Parker promised more energy and faster starts.True to his word, Parker has the Boilermakers (3-6, 1-5 Big Ten) playing solid first halves heading into Saturdays home game against Northwestern (4-5, 3-3).Purdue led No. 21 Nebraska 14-10 at halftime, was tied with No. 12 Penn State 17-17 through 30 minutes and led Minnesota 28-23 after two quarters.But second halves have been nightmares under Parker, with the Cornhuskers (7-2), Nittany Lions (7-2) and Golden Gophers (7-2) outscoring the Boilermakers by a collective 83-10, each rallying to defeat Purdue.While turnovers have been a second-half issue, Parker says theres more to it than that. At minus 14 (23-9), the Boilermakers rank 126th among the 128 FBS teams in turnover margin.Some things are common, Parker said Tuesday in reference to Purdues second-half woes. The things you all see we see. No. 1 is turnovers. Also, your running game always is going to be a factor in the second half.Depth is going to be a factor in the second half. And I will never use this as an excuse, but these three most recent teams have only six combined losses. They are good football teams. Welcome to being a head coach. We also have not reacted well to sudden changes on defense.Sophomore quarterback David Blough, who leads the Big Ten in passing yards per game (304.1) and in total offense (303.7), shoulders part of the blame because he has been intercepted 13 times and opponents have recorded 18 sacks.Blough was intercepted on the second halfs first series in the 44-31 loss at Minnesota, setting up a Golden Gopher touchdown. He threw four first-half touchdown passes in Minneapolis, but the Boilermakers were outscored 21-3 during the final 30 minutes last Saturday.They were the same plays we made in the first half against the same coverages, Blough said. The turnover to start the third quarter was the same play DeAngelo Yancey took to the house in the first half. My throw was a little bit behind, and (the Minnesota defender) made a good play.I have to protect the ball when things go bad. Its frustrating. Minnesota gave us every single coverage in America in the second half, and they kept throwing wrenches in it. We have to battle and make our bad plays gains of 2 and 3 yards instead of minus 2 yards or turnovers.It does not help Blough that Purdue ranks 125th nationally in rushing offense (101.2 yards a game) and is 121st in rushing defense (248.3).The Boilermakers enter the Northwestern game 0-14 in November games since the 2012 season and are 3-27 in Big Ten competition beginning with the 2013 season.Game notes Parker said that when athletic director Mike Bobinski hires the next head coach, he hopes to remain on the staff. My family loves it here, and Ive loved working here, said Parker, who came to Purdue with Hazell for the 2013 season. All those are reasons to obviously want to move forward here if something happens. ... After missing three consecutive games with a concussion, standout DT Jake Replogle played the first half at Minnesota but did not play after halftime. Parker said Tuesday that while he hopes Replogle plays against Northwestern, the lineman remains day to day.---For more college football coverage: http://www.collegefootball.ap.org Trevor Siemian Jersey . Clarke was injured while practicing on the Doha Golf Club range after the pro-am on Tuesday. The Northern Irishman arrived at the course on Wednesday hoping to start, but after hitting a few balls on the practice putting green Clarke advised officials he was not fit to play.

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Dillon Brooks came up short with a chance to win the game in regulation. Given another shot, he wasnt going to miss.Brooks hit a long 3-pointer with 22 seconds left in overtime and scored 17 points, lifting No. 13 Oregon to a 69-65 victory over Tennessee at the Maui Invitational on Tuesday.I knew I had to redeem myself, Brooks said.Oregon (3-2) shot poorly in a loss to Georgetown in its Maui opener and continued to struggle on Day 2. The Ducks shot 34 percent, including 5 of 17 from 3-point range, and had 21 turnovers.But they have Brooks.The preseason All-American was limited eight points in 13 minutes in his return Monday night, leaving him frustrated. Ducks coach Dana Altman gave his star more playing time and Brooks delivered, hitting 4 of 9 shots and 7 of 10 free throws in 25 minutes.Brooks has been his best when the games on the line and came through when Oregon needed him in Maui -- after failing at the end of regulation.The junior guard missed an open shot in the late at the buzzer, but pulled up without hesitation in overtime. Brooks drained that shot from well behind the arc, then grabbed a defensive rebound after the Vols missed before being fouled.On the way to hitting 1 of 2 game-sealing free throws, Brooks high-fived ESPN announced Bill Walton and yelled: Come on Bill!I thought he was going to drive it, Altman said of Brooks game-winner. When he pulled it up, it was one of those no, no, great shot.Tennessee (1-3), which lost to No. 16 Wisconsin in its tournament opener, struggled against the Ducks constant defensive pressure.The Vols had 25 turnovers and shot 37 percent, though managed to keep the Ducks within reach. Shembari Philips hit two free throws with 30 seconds left in regulation, but Tennessee could not come up with the big shot it needed in overtime.Detrick Mostella led Tennessee with 22 points.I keep saying I really like our team, Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. We keep getting better and better each time out, certainly coming here and playing against the level of competition is proving that our guys can compete. Pat Elflein Jersey. And now weve got to learn to win gamesOregon had a disappointing tournament opener, digging a 17-point first-half hole before a furious second-half rally fell short.The Ducks slow-started the second game as well, missing their first six 3-pointers and 10 of 13 shots overall.Tennessee stumbled out of the gate in its opener as well and did it again in the Day 2 early game, opening 3 for 16 to keep Oregon in it.Both teams started hit a few shots and were tied at 32-all by halftime.It got worse for the Vols to start the second half.Sped up by Oregons pressure defense, they threw balls out of balls and missed shots from all over the court. Tennessee had nine turnovers in the opening 8 1/2 minutes and missed eight of its first nine shots to fall behind 45-42.Despite Tennessees struggles, the Ducks could not pull away. Oregon had its own issues with turnovers and missed shots, so was unable to push the lead past single digits.We didnt come out of the locker room with the kind of energy we needed, Barnes said. We fought back. We kept our poise even when wed been down.BIG PICTURETennessee has a ways to go on both on both ends of the floor if its going to be competitive once the SEC season starts.Oregon won ugly and is still trying to find its groove with Brooks back. Getting a game-winning shot by their best player could be the spark the Ducks need.MISSING VOLSThe Vols played without point guard Jordan Bone, who was limited to seven minutes in the opener due to a foot injury. Power forward Admiral Schofield also was out due to unspecified reasons.UP NEXTOregon will face the winner between UConn and Chaminade in Wednesdays fifth-place game.Tennessee faces UConn-Chaminade loser in the seventh-place game.

NEW YORK -- NBC said its Olympic audience reached parity with the London Games for the first time on the third night of competition. Adam Butler Jersey . But theres an asterisk involved in the claim.The network said that its total audience delivery was 31.5 million for the Olympics on Monday night in prime time, compared to the virtually identical 31.6 million who watched on the corresponding night in London in 2012.The total audience delivery figure is a statistic NBC hurriedly invented when it saw sharp declines in its traditional ratings for the first couple of nights of the Rio de Janeiro Games. The Nielsen company said the television audience on NBC on Monday was 28.9 million -- strong, but short of London levels.But NBC is adding the viewership for prime-time telecasts on cables NBCSN (1.6 million) and Bravo (720,000) and people who streamed video online (about 300,000) to boost the number to 31.5 million -- its total audience delivery.NBC says the comparison is valid because even though the cable viewers werent watching the same thing as people tuned in to NBC, they were still watching the Olympics. Theres no comparable number from 2012, because the company didnt allow its cable affiliates and website to compete with the prime-time NBC telecast four years ago.One of the indicators of changing viewer habits, especially with these Olympics, is that our digital consumption has more than tripled from London in each of the first three days of full competition, NBC Sports Group chairman Mark Lazarus said. Weve also been pleasantly surprised that our multi-platform strategy is paying big dividends.The new calculation is about more than bragging rights. NBC will use total audience delivery to convince advertisers that theyre reaching more viewers than the traditional Nielsen figures indicate. Shaq Mason Jersey .

URDAX, Spain -- Valerio Conti successfully broke away Friday to win the Spanish Vueltas long 13th stage, while Nairo Quintana kept his overall lead. Custom Indiana Pacers Jerseys .Conti, riding for Lampre-Merida, separated from a small group of escapees and rode alone to finish the hilly 213.4-kilometer (132.6-mile) route in 5 hours, 29 minutes, 4 seconds.It was the 23-year-old Italians first win at a grand tour.Danilo Wyss was second -- almost a minute behind -- followed by Sergey Lagutin.The stage, which was the longest of this years edition of the race, started in Bilbao and ended in Urdax after a brief dip into France.Led by Quintanas Movistar, the peleton took the stage at a leisurely pace and crossed the finish line more than half an hour after Conti.For a second straight day, Quintana and nearest challenger Chris Froome refrained from attacking one another with the tough, and potentially decisive, high mountains looming.Quintana has a 54-second advantage over second-placed Froome heading into Saturdays daunting 196-kilometer (121.7-mile) course that traverses the French Pyrenees.Race organizers say the 14th stage, which includes three category-one ascents before a summit finish at the special-category Col dAubisque, is one of the most demanding stages in the history of the Vuelta.The three-week race ends in Madrid on Sept. 11. Bojan Bogdanovic Jersey . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. T. J. Leaf Jersey . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. http://www.officialpacersprostore.com/kids-cory-joseph-pacers-jersey/ . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. Im moneyballing, says Trent Woodhill. Find your way to any new-age cricket thinker - and Woodhill is as new-age as cricket will tolerate - and they will, at one stage or another, mention the title of Michael Lewis book on baseball sabermetrics. Its like crickets new thinkers are in a book club together, and they only ever discuss one book. If international coaches toy with the ideas behind Moneyball, it is the domestic T20 teams who truly obsess over them.Woodhill is by trade a batting and assistant coach. He must be pretty good, as his two personal clients are Steve Smith and David Warner. But his methods, and increasingly his willingness to talk openly about his complete disregard for crickets norms and its hierarchy of former Test players turned coaches (Woodhill never played first-class cricket, the cheeky monkey) mean that he isnt Cricket Australias (CA) batting coach, but Melbourne Stars. But its his job as Stars list manager that is most interesting.Moneyballs hero is Billy Beane, a man on the inside who thinks the entire system is wrong, and when faced with a choice, takes a new way over perceived baseball wisdom. Beane is a not a current player or a coach, as heroes often are in most sports narratives. He is the general manager, the man in charge of the list and day-to-day operations. To most athletes that might seem a pretty uncool role, but for people like Woodhill, Beane is about as cool as it gets. Woodhill is a devoted sports nerd, and when he gets excited, he might talk about Martin Guptills ball-striking or AB de Villiers hands, but he also gets just as excited about guys like Theo Epstein, the backroom genius who broke the Chicago Cubs title-drought, and even ESPN baseball writer Keith Law.Woodhill is not your typical Australian cricket coach. He is not a proselytiser of the baggy green, he never mentions it in our conversation, nor does he talk about Steve Waughs mental toughness. Recently he spoke out against sledging, and he doesnt bring up the glory days of Australian cricket every seven minutes. Instead, Woodhill quotes, verbatim, from the Big Short - another Michael Lewis book turned movie:Its time to call bullshit.Bullshit on what?Everything.Woodhill is calling bullshit on how cricket is played, coached and talked about. He isnt here to listen to former pros tell us how cricket has always been; he doesnt care about your Test record from 1974; he thinks most cricket coaches are living off their playing careers without helping much at all, and he believes crickets current stats are holding cricket back. His way of putting together the best list for Stars is to use science and hard facts in and around crickets steaming pile of opinion. If youve been out of the game for six years, you have no idea what is going on in the modern game.In a sport that still has a weird relationship with coaches and seems to actively distrust high-performance managers, Woodhills job will elicit punchlines from the moustachioed set. But in franchise cricket, someone needs to put the list together. The coaches swan from gig to gig, the captains often the same; each team has a GM or CEO, but often they are more in charge of running the franchise, not list curation.Woodhills job out of season is to assemble Stars the best 18 players he can find. Some of it is old school: he haggles with managers, talks to players about opportunities, but he is also looking beyond the perceived wisdom on a player, looking for the truth. He wants to know more about them than anyone else, so that when he makes a decision it isnt based on a recommendation, or on how they look, but on as many facts as possible.The problem is, for all the obsession cricket has with numbers, we havent yet moved on to a data obsession. Opta, perhaps the first big player in cricket data, still has a person at the ground mapping out where each ball was fielded, where it pitched, and if the batsman was in control of the shot. They dont map field positions, or how quickly fielders move to the ball, and at the moment they dont have their own cameras at grounds. Quite often the data that Opta gets ends up on apps and websites and not with the teams themselves. There are other providers such as Cricviz. But even then we are at the very beginning. Data just isnt something that cricket has invested in greatly yet.Where this plays out is when, for example, Woodhill wants to know if a bowler is good at the death and he doesnt want to rely on opinions that may be coloured by memory. Lets say he wanted to sign Sean Abbott. The conventional view might be that he isnt good at death bowling because Travis Head went all 4, 6, 4, 6, 6 and 1 in an over against him. But the fact of Abbotts death bowling isnt in one bad over or one good over; and its not always just in conventional death-bowling stats. Abbott may go at 8.5 over in those overs, but he might also concede 30% of those runs from edges, and there might be dropped catches and fumbles; or his fielders might not be as strong as those of other teams; perhaps he bowls on a smaller ground than others; or he has bowled more against bigger hitters. Woodhill moves to the best stats and data cricket has and then makes his judgement. He may not have all the facts he wants, but hes as far away from lazy misconceptions as he can get.When Woodhill talks facts, he isnt doing it in some post-truth 2016 way; hes actively trying to find out what is real and how to use it. Other teams have some of the same data, others perhaps have even more, but often those teams are run by people who still believe the old ways are the only ways. Or that they could deliver more in a team environment that backed their talent. They are also looking for a different kind of player, what Woodhill calls a three-tool player, which was something that the pioneering Bob Woolmer always liked. Someone who can help win them the game with batting, bowling or fielding.The bigger part of what Stars are doing is looking at cricket in a more forensic way. When John Hastings went down injured, they werent just interested in replacing him as a bowler who batted a bit; they delved deeper than the allrounder tag. While Hastings is known as a big hitter, for Stars he only got two hits last year, and only one of them came off. In his entire career for the team, he has batted in about half their matches, never scored more than 22, and has scored, in total, 139 runs. Hastings is for them a specialist death bowler. While cricket might see him as an allrounder, or rate his batting, says Woodhill, we have to deal with what he did for us, and replace it.Every time they need to fill a place they need to look at it in far more detail than looking at batsmen, bowlers, wicketkeepers and allrounders. How many six-hitters? How many strike-rotaters? How many slow-pitch tamers? How many new-ball seam bowlers? How many new-ball spinners? How many death bowlers? How various should the bowling options be? How many different wicketkeeping options? How many batsmen who are specialists against spin, or pace? How many boundary riders? How many players who spin it away from a right-hand batsman? How many batsmen who spin it away from a left-hand batsman?And these are just playing types, excluding the different personalities to consider. Players who have experience in multiple locations. Players with previous captaincy experience to help bulk out your strategic thinking. You might want a few leaders, or you might want a group where the leaders evolve naturally. You might want a diverse group of people, as diverse groups of people are better at problem-solving, or you might want a similar group of people, as they tend to work more smoothly. And all this before your team owner or chairman comes in and says, We need to you to sign a big name for marketing this year.Its a tough job to put a quality list together. And that means the gut in cricket selection will become more of a science. Many international sides still pick potential over performance. Franchise cricket is doing that less and less. That means picking older players, for whom teams can look at a data profile beforehand and know what they should expect.While the old-school baseball front office no longer exists, many cricket teams have barely started flirting with new ways of looking at the sport. It is often the T20 franchises that are doing the most adventurous work, because as a new franchise you need to win to guarantee your survival. New franchises, even the ones run by cricket boards, cant float for decades on legacy money and nationalist supporters. They are fighting for the best players, the best coaches, and all of crickets new fans. That means instant results, and teams will take them any way they can get them.While the Australian team will talk of picking Matt Renshaw and blooding him for the future, despite the fact he might not be seen as the best player now, in franchise teams they need the best here and now. Rob Quiney, who has been paassed over by Victoria this year as they try new players, is a perfect fit for a franchise. Darren Collison Jersey. . They have data on what he can do, they know he is a seasoned pro who has played cricket overseas, and they have decided he will fit well into their side. T20 was first seen as a young mans game, but quickly it has become a game for older, more experienced cricketers whom traditional cricket often moves on from. Its also a common theme of sabermetrics: a young player simply doesnt have the data to mine; they are unknown where the old players have history.But it isnt all milk and honey for those older players. Franchise cricket cant afford to live on reputation. They need to win, so giving a player a romantic ride at the end wont happen. The players have to adapt to stay relevant. Often that is perfecting a shot they have never mastered, or learning a new delivery. Sometimes its by adding a new skill altogether. A 37-year-old former international who bowled offspin in his youth, but didnt need it at international level, might need it again if he wishes to cash in on the last few years of his career. His offspin might only be useful on three pitches a season, against certain types of left-handers who struggle to score quickly against spin, but even if he only bowls six overs, that adds to his versatility and makes him more desirable to a franchise. Six overs of mediocre offspin to a list manager can be the advantage that wins a game.Every list in the BBL has to produce a squad of 18 that has enough variation in batting and bowling, for the entire series. Because once the 18 names are signed, there can be no trades, and unless there is an injury, no replacements. So, unlike American sports, where you can add a player for a two-week stint at a whim, or trade when your team has deficiencies mid-season, the BBL is a static, closed league.If your team finds itself struggling against fast bowling coming up to a week where three of your opposition have the best fast-bowling attacks, instead of hiring a fast-bowling specialist for the week, like an American sport might, you will just have to wing it with your available list. Likewise, if after three weeks of the tournament, Perth Scorchers think they have too much batting and not enough bowling, and Hobart Hurricanes think the opposite, they cant make a trade to rectify that. And that is one of the ways that the Big Bash is still not fully formed.There are also no long-term contracts, perhaps in part because the players are still yet to sign what they hope will be a very lucrative new MOU. Perhaps more importantly there are no drafts or auctions. The original BBL teams were made up primarily of players from that state, and even now its first in, first served, and once served, you cant do a damn thing.Woodhill calls bullshit on this, and you can see why. He is trying to build the best list for his captain and coach to work with each week, and once the 18th contract is signed, he has no control. How does that ensure the best 88 players in the country are in action each game? How does that ensure that teams that had a bad start can fill holes in their rosters that might be caused by injuries, or national selections that are out of their hands? That makes it harder to Moneyball, or even use an old-school approach to list management.But perhaps the biggest hole in Woodhills plan isnt the access to open player markets but to the data. Baseball and basketballs evolution has come from sabermetrics, big data, and analysts taking over. Woodhill is not a data analyst; hes a batting coach. While he craves more data to factor in, cricket has barely touched the surface. What all forms of cricket need, perhaps none more than T20, is a wins-above-replacement stat, so we know good a player is compared to a standard replacement player for that position; or a plus/minus runs stat that allows us to know what real effect a player has on the game.For every player that Woodhill picks, or wants to pick, what he desperately wants to know is what impact they have on games. He can ignore batting averages and cling on to strike rates, but he needs far more than that. He needs balls per boundary, per types of bowler, perhaps per types of pitch, and whether their runs come in overs 1-6, 7-10, 11-15 or 16-20. He needs to know what teams win T20 matches on different kinds of pitches. Is the number of times contact is made with the ball more important? Or who plays fewer dot balls? Or the number of singles/boundaries? Should every batsman be a boundary-hitting monster, or should you be picking batsmen based on their ability to rotate strike? Woodhill says, All I want from some batsmen is to run twos so he can get the big hitter back on strike.A player like Sachin Baby may look out of place in a batting line-up like Royal Challengers Bangalore, but if his job is to ensure that Chris Gayle, Shane Watson, Travis Head, de Villiers and Virat Kohli face more balls, his value is greater than his runs. When Kohli smashed Australia in the World T20 this year, MS Dhoni wanted credit for all the twos he helped steal to add to Kohlis total and keep him on strike. At the moment, cricket is still trying to work out how many extra runs non-striking batsmen are worth, meaning that Woodhill is guessing, rather than knowing.And it isnt all we dont know.Which player in the Big Bash runs the quickest three? Which bowler has the most successful slower ball? Who has the fastest hand speed? Which player fumbles the least? Which fast bowler saves the most runs in the field? What is the catch/drop percentage of each player? Which players only hit boundaries when the ball is new? How many balls at the start of an innings does each player need to hit their first boundary? A lot of these are simple things that American sports, and even domestic sports like Australian Rules and Rugby League would have access to.And thats before you get to fun stuff like the probability of a player playing a good shot compared to a bad one. What kind of things can we learn about a batsman or captain using spatio-temporal pattern recognition? These are things that draft camps might tell you, that you would ideally want to learn before picking players, that cricket is still trying to find answers to. Woodhill doesnt have all the answers. Some he wishes he does, others he wishes he had the staff to prepare answers for him. CA still dont have a great big analytic lab. Most of crickets data comes from a few companies that have limited funding, and without open-sourcing of data, cricket cant have the big leap forward that baseball and basketball have had. MIT have the Sloan Sports Conference to move sports forward using science. Something like that would massively help cricket, but since the sport wont pay for its umpiring technology system, were a way off a yearly cricket science conference. For now, Woodhill relies on the tiny bits of data he gets and hopes that he finds things that other teams arent yet looking for.Without access to MIT scientists, Woodhill improvised by crowdsourcing via social media. He uses the new cricket media, from professional writers to amateur tweeters, to question his beliefs. Without a front office to bounce ideas off, he might do that with a random tweeter, or he might read a blog by someone that makes him rethink a belief he had. For his way to work, he needs not only to call bullshit on the old ways, but also on new ways of doing it that may just be wrong.Being that so many people in cricket are claiming to be moneyballing, and so many teams arent very good, it is easy for many critics to laugh at how often the term comes up. Most critics just think its all nonsense. There are bound to be missteps when you are mainly trying to use another sports evolution to force your own. Not every team has the intelligence of Andy Flower and Nathan Leamon. The two teams Woodhill works for, Bangalore and Stars, both came second last season. And his list for Stars was so good, they signed the same list again this year. And it is that list that has them as favourites for this years tournament.Right now crickets moneyballing is more Mick Lewis than Michael Lewis. Woodhill is one of a very small crew of list managers in Australia, and world cricket. He is just an amateur, playing with the beginnings of a professional structure, and he knows it. He has no idea if what he is doing is correct, but he is using the best current thinking to make his decisions. Which is at least a step towards a new age.Whether Woodhills methods will be proved right or wrong we dont know, but what he is doing has been working, and the more it works, the more list managers, hands-on general managers and data well see in cricket. The lazy ex-players might call bullshit on the new ways, but that is their opinion. Woodhills more interested in facts.

TORONTO -- Ubaldo Jimenez is rounding into form at the right time for the Baltimore Orioles. Malik Hooker Jersey .Jimenez and two relievers combined on a three-hitter and the Orioles beat the Blue Jays 4-0 on Thursday night, moving into a tie with Toronto in the AL wild card race with three games remaining.(Jimenez) was in command pretty much all night, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said. In a big game like that, he really kept his emotions under control like I knew he would. He threw the ball great.When he last started at Toronto on June 12, Jimenez allowed five runs and six hits in 1/3 of an inning, the shortest start of his career.Whatever happened to me in the past, I dont even think about that, Jimenez said. If you get stuck in the past, youre not going to be able to move on. Whether its good or bad, you have to find a way to look forward.The right-hander made his return a triumphant one, carving up the Blue Jays for 6 2/3 innings. The only hit he allowed was Ezequiel Carreras single to begin the first. Josh Donaldson followed with a walk but Jimenez retired the next six batters in order.Boy, he was solid, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. It was big to get a positive feeling early on.

TEMPE, Ariz. David Peralta Jersey . -- The Arizona Cardinals have signed long-snapper Aaron Brewer, punter Ryan Quigley and linebacker Joplo Bartu.Brewer replaces rookie Kameron Canady, who was released by the club Tuesday. Brewer was the long snapper of the Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos the past four seasons. He spent the preseason with the Chicago Bears before being released in the teams final roster cuts.Quigley is needed because punter Drew Butler is out with an ankle injury. Quigley punted for the New York Jets the past three seasons. He was cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars on June 16.Bartu played inside linebacker in 41 career games, 26 as a starter, in three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Gunners went ahead through Aaron Ramseys 39th-minute strike but Spurs turned the tables after Francis Coquelins 55th-minute red card thanks to quickfire goals from Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane.Alexis Sanchez scored with 14 minutes left to salvage a point for Arsenal as Tottenham spurned the chance to pull level on points with leaders Leicester City. However, Pochettino denied suggestions his young team lacked the maturity to close out the game when leading 2-1 with 15 minutes remaining.Its true it was a missed opportunity and the way that we played I believe we deserved more, said Pochettino.It was a good game, we showed improvements, and Im very pleased with the players and how they played the game.I think we deserved more. I feel a little bit disappointed and frustrated because we were unlucky with the way we conceded the goal. With 11 against 10 we needed to keep the score the same.The match had been described as the most important north London derby in 25 years and Pochettino felt Tottenham coped with the occasion despite failing to retain their 2-1 advantage. Tottenham defend an Alexis Sanchez free-kick Its not about maturity, its not about character, he said. I can give a lot of examples of big clubs with older players who concede goals in the last minutes of games.Today, you have to admit the opponent can create good chances, and we were unlucky, but its not about maturity. Brad Boxberger Jersey. Sometimes when you play against 10 men sometimes its more difficult than when you play against 11.Today, if we focus on the result we can feel disappointed we didnt win, but we should feel very proud of our players.  Harry Kane celebrates with Kyle Walker after scoring Tottenhams second goal Pochettino still expects plenty more twists and turns in the title race in the closing weeks of the season.I think that there are a lot of games ahead - nine games and lots of points, he said.Its true we missed a big opportunity but Arsenal are a very good team with very good players and they can create lots of chances. We need to be positive. We are a young team, and we need to be happy. Coquelin was sent off for two bookable offences and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger felt Tottenhams Eric Dier should also have received a second yellow card from referee Michael Oliver for pulling back Olivier Giroud.I think that the sending off didnt affect the result, said Pochettino. Maybe Dier could have had a second yellow, yes, but its always down to the decision of the referee - they are the boss.Pochettino confirmed Danny Rose came off with cramp in his calf and that he will be assessed on Sunday, although does not expect him to miss Tottenhams Europa League trip to Borussia Dortmund on Thursday.

RALEIGH, N. Mookie Betts Jersey .C. -- A scheduled game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Detroit Red Wings was postponed Monday night because of unplayable ice.A Freon leak in the cooling system at PNC Arena was discovered earlier in the day. The issue was fixed, but not in time to restart the game. NHL rules state a game cannot start less than 22 hours before a teams next scheduled contest, and the Red Wings are set to play at Tampa Bay at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday night.Carolina announced a delay on Twitter about 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of 7 p.m., then publicized the postponement around 8:45 p.m.Hurricanes President Don Waddell said a makeup date would probably be decided on Tuesday or Wednesday.Ive seen games cancelled for ice storms and weather, but this is the first one Ive seen because of a seal in the compressors, Carolina general manager Ron Francis said. I dont remember an issue similar to this. Its certainly frustrating.Waddell said the problem was indicated by a computer at about 6 p.m.We had to fix the part that broke and then bring the gas in to fix the Freon, Waddell said. The problem was that the ice temperature got up to about 30 degrees, so once we started chilling it, it was dropping, but at the rate it was dropping, we could not have been comfortable with it until about 9:45. And the safety of the players obviously is first and foremost.Waddell said the normal ice temperature at the start of a game is 18 degrees, but the temperature when the game was postponed was 24.Ive never been a part of something like this, Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. But the No. 1 concern has to be the safety of the players and the referees. It was determined we could not get the ice conditions to where they needed to be in time since were playing tomorrow as well.Added Detroit captain Henrik Zetterberg: Its just one of those things. Well get into Tampa a little earlier and there will be a morning skate instead of the optional. Thats the only difference (for Tuesday).The Hurricanes wrote on their Twitter account that they will post ticket and parking refund information on the team website.It was the first time a hockey game at the arena -- which opened for the 1999-2000 season -- was postponed because of technical issues.Three NHL games were postponed in January because of a massive snowstorm. The Washington Capitals postponed games against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks, while the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders also held off on a game in Brooklyn.Game notes Carolina is scheduled to practice at PNC Arena on Wednesday at 11 a.m. ... The Hurricanes have gotten points in nine straight home games (8-0-1). ... Detroit won its first meeting of the season with Carolina 4-2 at home on Oct. 25. ... Carolina won the three-game series with the Red Wings last season, winning twice on the road and losing at home.UP NEXTRed Wings: Visit Tampa Bay on Tuesday night in what will be the opener of a two-game trip.Hurricanes: Visit Buffalo on Thursday night before returning home on Friday against Boston.

Legendary broadcaster Vin Scully, who called his final Los Angeles Dodgers game on Oct. Glen Perkins Jersey . 2 after 67 years in the booth, was at the White House on Tuesday to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama.Scully, who turns 89 next week, was one of 21 individuals to earn the nations highest civilian honor, bestowed upon those who make significant cultural contributions to the United States or international contributions in the areas of culture or world peace.Scully, a 1982 National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, arrived in Washington on Monday morning with his wife, Sandra, before sharing a moment with White House press secretary and Dodgers fan Josh Earnest, who last week called Scully to inform him of the award.Among those receiving the Medal of Freedom alongside Scully were NBA greats Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, as well as musician Bruce Springsteen. Some of the other honorees included Ellen DeGeneres, Robert De Niro, Bill and Melinda Gates, Lorne Michaels and Tom Hanks.President Obama spoke for nearly an hour while citing each individual, and introduced Scully by calling him one of baseballs signature sounds. The Commander in Chief jokingly said he considered having Scully announce each recipient instead of him.The ceremony concluded with Obama inviting each individual up to the podium so that he could place the actual Medal of Freedom around their necks while an official narrator offered further words of praise. Scully appeared emotional as he shook Obamas hand and bowed his head while returning to his seat.Scully joined the Dodgers in 1950, when the team was still based in Brooklyn. Known for his calm delivery and storytelling capabilities, Scullys famous pregame catchphrase was, Its time for Dodger baseball!-- Nick Ostiller Harmon Killebrew Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Ervin Santana Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. http://www.twinsrookiestore.com/Twins-Kennys-Vargas-Kids-Jersey/ . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. HOUSTON -- The Houston Dynamo scored for the first time in a month and won for the first time in nearly two months Saturday, lifting a weight off their collective shoulders. Ricardo Clark scored in the 59th minute and the Houston Dynamo snapped a seven-game winless streak with a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night. "We know whats been going on," Houston coach Dominic Kinnear said. "We have been peppered with questions over the last couple weeks about not winning. This is a proud group, and we get a little annoyed by it. ... Any time you win -- whether it is a great win or the teams played poorly and you get a little lucky -- you walk off the field with a little enjoyment out of it." Houston (7-6-5) had not won since beating D.C. United 4-0 on May 8. "Its nice to get one," said Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall, who finished with three saves. "Sometimes it is not pretty in the end. I dont think we finished the game great. You look at it, its three points and we havent had that in a while. We walk away with smiles on our faces." Clark also put an end to Houstons franchise record 388-minute scoreless streak when he headed in Jermaine Taylors cross from the left sideline from 8 yards out. Clark said Taylors service on the goal was right where he needed it to be, and he was trying to make the most of it. "Its three points," Clark said. "At the end of the day, tthat is all we wanted. Anibal Sanchez Jersey. We could have finished a couple more chances."Houston had not scored since Warren Creavalles goal at Columbus on June 1. The Dynamos previous record scoreless streak was 273 minutes in May 2007. "It just gives us our confidence and gets us back to our winning ways," Houston forward Giles Barnes said. "It gets us back up the table and puts pressure on everyone on top of us. Obviously, when you start scoring and obviously we had more chances, so the mood was a lot different." Philadelphia (7-6-6) had its five-game unbeaten streak snapped, dropping its first game since losing 5-3 at Montreal on May 25. "Youre going to win some, and youre going to lose some, especially when you try to play in these kind of conditions, third game in eight days, its just tough," Philadelphia coach John Hackworth said. "So, thought our team put out a fantastic effort, just wasnt there tonight." Philadelphias best chance came before halftime when Hall stopped Aaron Wheelers shot from the left box and Conor Caseys rebound attempt went high. Casey said the Union did not establish what they wanted to do, and in the end, they didnt do enough to get a result. "Today just wasnt a very good day in general, but I think the past month weve played pretty consistent," Casey said. "So, just get back to what we were doing and take it from there."

Judging by the first 32 minutes of each of their first round games Wednesday in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, it seemed No. Dion Dawkins Jersey . 24 Michigan State and No. 20 Baylor were destined for a second-day matchup in the consolation bracket and not the semifinals.Baylor was mired in a tie with 8:38 remaining against VCU, while Michigan State led St. Johns only 55-53 with 8:22 left.But the Bears and Spartans showed why they are ranked and two of the tournament-title contenders from that point on, taking over to win going away and setting up what was the expected semifinal matchup going into the tournament.There wont be much time for either team to recover at Thursdays semifinal begins at noon ET.I thought in the first half when we were turning the ball over and they were doing a great job taking us out on offense, especially the last 10 minutes of the game of the first half, we were able to come in the locker room and players showed great leadership and poise to be able to regroup and only have five turnovers in the second half, Baylor coach Scott Drew said. I thought that was outstanding, especially with the pressure they put on.As was the case for the Bears in their first four games, they were led Wednesday by the three-headed monster of junior forward Johnathan Motley (19 points), junior guard Manu Lecomte (16 points) and junior guard Al Freeman (15 points).Lecomte and Motley average more than 16 points, while Freeman averages better than 14.Michigan State (3-2) won its last three games after losing to No. 8 Arizona and top-ranked Kentucky, in the process throwing a talented freshman class into the fire.Freshman Miles Bridges is the teams leading scorer at more than 17 points per game and rebounder at better than 10 and freshman big man Nick Ward had nine points and 11 rebounds against St. Johns, while point guard Cassius Winston and guard Josh Langford have also seen significant minutes.Senior guard Eron Harris started to come on over the past two games, scoring 31 points against Florida Gulf Coast on Sunday and adding 14 points and seven rebounds against St. Johns.While the Bears tipped off at 2:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, the preparation time is even worse for the Spartans, whose game didnt end until after 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday.Its disappointing, if you want the truth, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said of the short turnaround during his postgame show on the Spartan Sports Network. Its almost insane. Its not right. I dont want to rip anybody here, but Im concerned. Especially when the other team had four or five more hours to prepare for us. But it is what it is and we will go play the game. Micah Hyde Jersey . They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name.

Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Red, white and blase for one quarter, the U.S. Olympic mens basketball team woke up and won with ease.Shaking off a sluggish, sloppy start and maybe some Brazilian boredom, the Americans regrouped in the second quarter and romped over Venezuela 113-69 on Monday, taking another step toward a possible third straight gold medal.Kevin Durant scored 16 points and Carmelo Anthony 14 for the U.S. squad, which may have grown a touch overconfident following a 57-point blowout of China in its tournament opener.The Americans were tied after one quarter, but turned up their defensive intensity, outscored Venezuela 30-8 in the second period and improved to 82-1 under coach Mike Krzyzewski.The game of basketball, everythings not going to be easy, Durant said. We know that, even with this great team.It was similar to the meeting between the teams in Chicago on July 29, when the U.S. shot poorly and still won by 35 on its pre-Rio exhibition tour. Maybe this was a reminder that no team can be taken lightly -- and there is little margin for error -- once the Olympic flame is ignited.The Americans continue pool play on Wednesday against unbeaten Australia. The Aussies, featuring five NBA players, four of them league champions, improved to 2-0 on Monday with an impressive 95-80 win over Serbia. Australia has never won an Olympic medal in mens basketball.Anthony, the four-time Olympian and two-time gold medalist playing in his record 25th game for the United States, provided a much-needed spark in the second quarter.I think once we settled down, made our adjustments to the way they were calling the game, the way that Venezuela wanted to play the game, that second quarter we picked it up defensively and turned it around, Anthony said.With the Americans leading just 28-22 and looking anything but golden, Anthony came across the lane and stripped the ball away from Venezuelan center Gregory Echenique and passed it to?Kyrie IIrving. Taiwan Jones Jersey. Anthony then trailed Irving up the floor, accepted a feed on the wing and knocked down a 3-pointer that lifted some of the pressure -- and fog -- off Team USA.Anthony moved past Michael Jordan?on the U.S. career scoring list and now trails only LeBron James and David Robinson.Paul George scored 20 and Jimmy Butler 17 -- most of them coming in extended garbage time -- in the first Olympic matchup between the nations.Venezuelas John Cox, a cousin of American superstar Kobe Bryant, scored 19 and Echenique 18.Although this may not be the best made-in-America team as James, Stephen Curry and others chose to skip the Rio Games, the U.S. squad that came to Brazil appears to be in a class by itself. There will likely be tougher games ahead, but they havent had one yet.Venezuela, which doesnt have an NBA player on its roster, didnt figure to be a threat but the FIBA Americas champion wasnt intimidated by the U.S. roster of household names.With their fans doing all they could to push the heavy underdogs, Venezuelas players outworked the Americans in the first quarter, which ended 18-all and the U.S. with six turnovers.It was a different story in the second, when the Americans reeled off 13 straight points in one stretch to take control.Staying on a 196-cabin luxury cruise ship anchored off Rios coast, the U.S. team has settled in following a few choppy early days in Brazil.Taking the floor in all-white warm-ups as Jay-Zs Public Service Announcement blared inside the Carioca Arena, the U.S. team looked both relaxed and ready.DeAndre Jordan showed off some dance moves during layup drills as Brazilian fans, many of them wearing NBA jerseys, snapped photos of the American stars.Late in the game, after George crushed a dunk to put the U.S. up by 43, Jordan boogied again on the sideline.

No. Troy Tulowitzki Jersey . 14 Washington | No. 16 USC | Top 25No. 15: TCULast Season: 11-2?(7-2 Big 12)The Horned Frogs trail only Washington among my surprise teams in 2016. They lacked that tough Gary Patterson defense last season, allowing 398.4 yards per game after pacing the conference with just 340.3 allowed over the previous three years. Last years unit brings back eight starters, putting the defensive line, linebackers and secondary position groups all in my top 20. Though they lose QB Trevone Boykin, WR Josh Doctson and RB Aaron Green on offense, I do like the replacements. Kenny Hill, who transferred out of Texas A&M, where he threw for 2,649 yards in 2014, fits well with the offense, while Kyle Hicks figures to take over at running back after averaging 4.8 yards per carry last year. TCU is an underdog against only Oklahoma (+3), which it beat in 2014. If the Horned Frogs upset the Sooners again, they would have a clear path to the Big 12 title and a playoff berth, assuming they handle a depleted Baylor team in a toss-up game late in the year.TCUs chances to win each game 09.03 vs. South Dakota State: 94.6% 09.10 vs. Arkansas: 56.2% 09.17 vs. Iowa State: 88.3% 09.23 @ SMU: 85.4% 10.01 vs. Oklahoma: 19.6% 10.08 @ Kansas: 88.1% 10.22 @ West Virginia: 41.7% 10.29 vs. Texas Tech: 71.9% 11.05 @ Baylor: 36.8% 11.19 vs. Oklahoma State: 39.8% 11.25 @ Texas:?39.0% 12.03 vs. Kansas State: 80.7%Dont sleep on these Horned Frogs. Experienced defense, lots of offensive weapons, favorable schedule, supremely well-coached. All they need is the best version of Kenny Hill to lead the charge. If they can beat Oklahoma on Oct. 1, an 11-1 season and a playoff bid are attainable. -- Max OlsonThe pieces are in place on both sides of the ball for the Horned Frogs to challenge in the Big 12. One of those is transfer QB Hill, who will be consistent enough for TCU to finish 9-3. -- Jake TrotterNo. 14 Washington | No. 16 USC | Top 25 Devon Travis Jersey .Y. -- Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers had no intention of changing his hard-hitting style before taking part in a disciplinary hearing for his illegal check to New Jersey forward Dainius Zubrus head. Paul Molitor Jersey . PAUL, Minn. http://www.officialbluejaysgearshop.com/ . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.WASHINGTON - The Washington Nationals placed left-handed pitcher Ross Detwiler on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 4, on Sunday with a lower back strain. Detwiler, originally projected to start Mondays series opener at Philadelphia, is 2-7 with a 4.04 ERA in 13 starts. He experienced discomfort in his back when hhe threw his bullpen session Saturday.

Roger Federer returned to action with a 6-3 7-5 victory over Alexander Zverev at the Rome Masters but admits he does not know if he will play on Thursday. http://www.broncosrookiestore.com/Broncos-Carlos-Henderson-Jersey/ . Having missed out in Madrid last week with a back injury that he has suggested is still troubling him, Federer was on court for the first time since mid-April, having played just one event since the Australian Open following knee surgery.A meeting with one of the Tours brightest prospects in the shape of 19-year-old Zverev was always likely to prove a good test for the 17-time Grand Slam champion ahead of the French Open which starts later this month, and he admits he feared the worse I was expecting to lose in straight sets today, said Federer.That was the mind-set going in, so to win in straights is actually a really big surprise to me. I played cautious, and I only decided after the warm-up that I was actually going to play. Roger Federer won his second round match with Alexander Zverev in straight sets Im happy I was able to play a full match without any setbacks. Im coming off a brutal last few months, and Im just happy to be able to play normal tennis to some extent. So for me, its a big day and huge step in the right direction.Up next for Federer will be 13th seed Dominic Thiem, who beat Portugals Joao Sousa 6-3 6-2 although Federer hinted that he will make another late decision on his participation.I dont know how Im going to feel tomorrow. I hope so. Im literally going practice after practice. Every 15 minutes I speak to Ivan [Ljubicic] or Severin [Luthi] and say, what else can we do?Its baby steps right now. So to even think of tomorrow is already a big ask. Zverev battled back bravely in the second set despite before losing As far as his match with Zverev was concerned the 34-year was out of the traps impressively, looking strong on his serve and needing just one break of the Germans serve to claim the opening set.Zverev, coming off an impressive run to the semi-finals in Munich last week, fought back from another early break and, having failed to trouble the Federer serve early on, forced break points to level the second set at 4-4.It was to prove in vain though as Federer broke again for a crucial 6-5 lead which he turned into victory with his first and only match point.You can follow all the action from Rome throughout the week on Sky Sports through until Sundays final.
