On the second day of the ELeague major qualifier, an expected distance began to form between the top teams and everyone else in the Swiss format bracket. Blake Bortles Jersey . Heres how Day 2 played out.Renegades and Counter Logic Gaming started out the day with a game that few could have predicted. Renegades looked dominant early on, pushing to a 15-5 lead. From that point, CLG surged back as Renegades seemingly forgot that you need 16 rounds to win a map. CLG would go on a 14-1 run throughout the end of the second half and into overtime to take the map and leave both teams with a 1-1 record in the tournament.Next up was Ninjas in Pyjamas against HellRaisers, the first matchup of the day between undefeated teams. Despite the fact that they were effectively in a winners bracket, few people gave HellRaisers a shot in this one. Those people were undoubtedly feeling good about the prediction as NiP held 13-7 and 15-12 leads throughout the match. However, HellRaisers wouldnt give up and battled back to force an overtime and pick up a 19-17 win behind a stellar performance from Bence DeadFox B?r?cz.Immortals continued their strong run at the qualifier with another big win, this time over Vega Squadron. Despite being able to take out CLG on Day 1, Vega looked lost against more formidable competition. They only got four rounds on both the T- and CT- side, as Immortals used a massive 31/10 game from Lucas LUCAS1 Teles to coast to an easy 16-8 victory.Despite claiming a 2-0 record, GODSENT certainly didnt take any easy route to get a favorable standing this weekend. After beating G2 16-11 yesterday, they got off to a pretty slow start against Team Dignitas today. They fell into an early 1-8 hole in the first half before stabilizing in a big way the rest of the way. Their CT-side on Mirage was incredible as they locked Dignitas down, only giving up two rounds in the half. This time it was Andreas znajder Lindberg coming through with a 25/18 KD (kills/death ratio) to push his team to victory.The second-to-last game of the day turned into one of the biggest upsets we will likely see all weekend, with TyLoo taking down Cloud9. From the jump Cloud9 looked to be out of sync and were unable to do much against the Chinese squad early on. TyLoo took a 10-5 lead into the half before finishing to a 16-11 win. The North American hopefuls now have just one life to live, as one more loss will eliminate them.Mousesports and G2 Esports also bounced back after a couple tough losses on the first day of competition. Mousesports got their first win of the event over Team Spirit in a game that was practically given to them after Spirit failed to ban Dust 2, mousesports best map. The German squad made them pay with a 16-5 trouncing. G2s path to their first win was a bit tougher, as they had to overcome Team EnVyUs. Most of the game was close, with both teams jockeying for position throughout. G2 would use a late 7-1 run to finally put EnVyUs away and get a win. Team Spirit and EnVyUs now sit at 0-2 and are on their last life for the qualifying event.The day ended with the other North American team in OpTic Gaming dropping their second game to fall to 1-1 on the weekend. FaZe Clan got out to a strong 8-0 start on the T-side of Overpass, which ended up being far too much for OpTic to come back from. They did attempt a comeback, tying things up at 11 before FaZe picked up their play to take the map 16-11 and improve to 2-0.The action kicks off Saturday at 10:00 a.m. ET with G2 taking on Vega Squadron. Four teams are sitting at a 2-0 record and four teams are sitting at 0-2, which means we will be guaranteed to see two teams lock up a spot in the major and two teams lose their shot. If the first two days are any indication, there will be plenty of reasons to tune in. A.J. Bouye Jersey . Louis Blues absence from top spot in the TSN. Brad Nortman Jersey . Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- After losing three straight, the Nashville Predators got a balanced effort to get back on the winning track.Kevin Fiala and Viktor Arvidsson scored two goals each as five Predators players came through with their first points of the season to lead illness-depleted Nashville to a 5-1 victory over the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.Calle Jarnkrok also scored, P.K. Subban and Filip Forsberg each added two assistse, and Juuse Saros had 34 shots for his first NHL victory.It is part of Juuses growing process and how he is evolving through this organization, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. He has been off to a terrific start in (AHL) Milwaukee with three one-goal games and he has one-goal game here. He really bailed us out.Saros was one of the five players recalled from Milwaukee to fill in for several Predators players still suffering from food poisoning. The problem has been attributed by team officials to chicken soup as part of the pregame meal in Detroit on Friday night.We were much less sick for this game, Laviolette said. But they didnt get a chance to eat much. They couldnt keep anything down.Scott Wilson scored in the opening minute of the game for Pittsburgh. Marc-Andre Fleury gave up the five goals on 23 shots through the first two periods before being replaced by Mike Condon, who stopped all seven shots he faced in the third.We have to become a more difficult team to play against, Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said. It starts with our decision making but its beyond that at this point.We show signs when we have our game together and we are hard to play against and we show other signs where we dont make the right decisions.Arvidsson tied the score on the power play at 3:08 of the first period, and Fiala beat Fleury with a wrister to start a four-goal second with his first of the season at 2:26.I was happy for Kevin, Laviolette said. He has been working hard, but you arent seeing it on paper. He built a lot of confidence playing on one of our top lines. He was a big contributor.Jarnkroks wrister made it 3-1 just past midway through the period with his ffirst point of the season, and Fiala got his second goal about a minute later for his first career multi-goal game. Telvin Smith Jersey. Arvidssons second of the game and third of the season, into the top right corner of the net, capped the scoring with 36 second left in the second.It only took 52 seconds for Saros to give up his first goal in his second NHL start. Wilson skated in to beat Saros to his glove side with a wrist shot.I just tried to start the game all over again after that shot, Saros said. You cant keep thinking about those goals. You have to continue to keep playing.It was great to get my first NHL victory. It was an amazing thing. It was even better to get it against Pittsburgh since Fleury was one of my early idols. I have spent a lot of time watching his highlights.Saros credited his teammates with making his job a little easier by keeping the area in front of the net clear.I give a lot of credit to the guys in front of me particularly on rebounds, Saros said. They kept guys out of the front of the net so I could see the puck well. It was a lot of fun to play behind those guys.Pekka Rinne, Mike Fisher, Craig Smith and Colton Sissons were all sidelined dealing by the illness. Along with Saros, the others called up were forwards Frederick Gaudreau, Trevor Smith, Austin Watson and Harry Zolnierczyk.Game notes Nashvilles Yannick Weber and Saros each earned their first assists of the season. ... The five goals were the most allowed by Fleury in a game this season. ... Nashville placed Cody Bass on injured reserve with an upper-body injury. ... Nashville set a franchise record with the power-play goal, the ninth of the season in the first five games, beating the previous record of seven set in 2005-06 and 2002-03. ... Pittsburghs Matt Cullen, who played two seasons for the Predators, became the 59th player in NHL history to play in 1,300 games. ...

The door to a berth in the Big Ten Championship Game is wide open for Penn State and what was unthinkable just weeks ago -- a shot at the four-team College Football Playoff -- is within reach. Jamize Olawale Jersey . The question now is: Can the injury-riddle Nittany Lions (8-2, 6-1 Big Ten) limp through it?No. 9 Penn State, ranked eighth in this weeks College Football Playoff poll, is expected to play without its top three offensive tackles when it travels to Piscataway, N.J., to play Rutgers (2-8, 0-7) on Saturday.Starting offensive tackle Andrew Nelson was lost for the season weeks ago and fellow starter Brendan Mahon is not expected back this week. Compounding the issue, it was announced Tuesday that Paris Palmer, who had moved into the starting lineup at tackle, is done for the season with a knee injury suffered early in last weeks 45-31 win at Indiana. Promising young guard Connor McGovern also could miss the game.Michigans shocking loss to Iowa last Saturday means the Wolverines, Nittany Lions and No. 2 Ohio State all enter the week with 6-1 records atop the Big Tens East Division. Penn State still needs Michigan, which hosts Indiana this week, to lose again while the Nittany Lions must win both of their games. That doesnt seem all that improbable when considering Penn States final two opponents -- the Nittany Lions host sputtering Michigan State (3-7, 1-6) next week -- while Michigan still has to play the Buckeyes in Columbus.Penn State still has to take care of business, however.Although Penn States final two opponents are a combined 1-13 in conference play, the offensive line injury woes could set back an offense that has taken off under first-year coordinator Joe Moorhead. It leaves Penn State with just one starting upperclassman -- center Brian Gaia -- and a bunch more questions for coach James Franklin. Does he go to veteran reserves Wendy Laurent and Derek Dowrey? Or does he burn a redshirt in order to fill the holes up front?Despite the injury woes on the line, the Nittany Lions still lead the Big Ten in plays of at least 20 yards, while also ranking tied for sixth nationally with 18 plays of 40-plus yards.Sophomore quarterback Trace McSorley ranks fourth in the Big Ten with 2,390 yards and leads the FBS in yards per completion (15.4). He has 27 completions of 30 or more yards. Also an excellent runner, McSorley has had both a rushing and passing touchdown in five of the last six games, and his 304 rushing yards are the most by a Nittany Lions quarterback since Michael Robinson had 806 in 2005.Sophomore Saquon Barkley leads the Big Ten with 1,119 rushing yards and has scored 13 touchdowns. He also leads the conference in all-purpose yards per game (142.1).Rutgers (2-8, 0-7) will be celebrating Senior Night and is coming off a 49-0 loss at Michigan State. The Scarlet Knights, who started the season 2-1 thanks to back-to-back home wins over Howard (52-14) and New Mexico (37-28), have lost seven straight, all in the Big Ten, by an aggregate score of 290-73. They have been shut out in three of those games and scored seven points in two others.This is a tough year, first-year coach Chris Ash said. Its been a tough year. Its a tough time. But the way the people show up to work every day, the way they believe in each other, trust in each other and go work for each other has been impressive to watch, and thats what Im most excited about as we continue to move forward.The Scarlet Knights are averaging just 17.5 points and 296.1 yards per game while allowing 38 points and 444.5 yards. Running back Robert Martin has been an offensive bright spot, rushing for 547 yards on 105 carries, while sophomore linebacker Trevor Morris leads the team with 84 tackles and 4.5 sacks. Art Shell Jersey . Zvonareva, who won the tournament in 2009 and 10, couldnt handle her opponents big groundstrokes in only her third event back after 17 months out with a shoulder injury.

For the first time in more than 14 months, Tiger Woods will tee it up inside the ropes in a PGA Tour event at the Safeway Open. The 14-time major champion is coming off multiple back surgeries and will kick off the year in the 2016-17 PGA Tour season opener.So what are realistic expectations for Woods at the Silverado Resort and Spas North Course? And what will his game look like under the tournament spotlight?Our panel of experts debate those topics and more in a Tiger-focused edition of Monday Four-Ball.1. What are you most interested to see from Tiger this week?SportsCenter anchor Matt Barrie: Body language. Sounds funny, but for the past two years, we havent seen Tiger play without some sort of limp, grimace, tightness or confidence. Watching him swing, walk and react will give us a decent indication about where he his health-wise.SportsCenter anchor Jonathan Coachman: I really want to see where his game is at. Can he be competitive right away or will it take a while? I am selfish and I want him to shoot a 64 right away, but I know thats probably not realistic. I would be encouraged if we saw Tiger in control of his golf ball and if he was able to shape it both ways. I know he will be fine, but I want it to come back senior golf analyst Michael Collins:? Im anxious to see what he looks like at the end of his second tournament round. Round 1 will be on plenty of adrenaline. By Friday on his back nine, Tiger will be playing the game we can expect to see from him in the future. I also cant wait for his self-evaluation because you know hes going to come out with a new saying. Remember getting my glutes to activate? senior golf writer Bob Harig: Is he healthy? Can he swing freely, hit shots out of the rough, take an awkward stance in a bunker? And is he willing and able to practice after a round? All of these things go toward his overall senior golf writer Jason Sobel: The little things. Does he seem relaxed or stressed? Is he regularly stretching his back or does he look fully healthy? Will he try to work the ball both ways or will he have a singular go-to shot? A lot of little nuances that are better witnessed in person than on the TV broadcast.2. Why should we believe this comeback will be different?Barrie: He took his time coming back. The common thought about Tigers health is that hes rushed back numerous times, and it caused more harm than good. This time around, he waited until he felt right. If he is in fact healthy, and time was his best rehab, we could be in store for a fun storyline.Coachman: Because he took his time, did not get impatient and now is close to 100 percent. That is the biggest thing Tiger will need. He needs to go full speed in his swing and be confident in his short game. This year will be the reason he comes back better than ever. If anyone can climb back to the top, it is Mr. Woods.Collins:?We shouldnt. Tiger hasnt earned any trust from us when it comes to his health. I want more than anything for this comeback to last for two full seasons. Unfortunately, if he is in pain this week at the tournament, do any of you believe hes going to tell us? You must be thinking of Jason Day.Harig: Until we know for sure how healthy he is, Im not sure we should believe it will be different. But a good reason to believe it is the fact that he took more than a year away from the game this time. He didnt rush. He resisted the urge to play when he knew better. And lets be honest, there is no compelling reason to return now. He could have easily wwaited even longer. Jared Cook Jersey. He must feel he is ready to go.Sobel: Every comeback is different; every comeback has varying degrees of success and failure. I wouldnt base anything that happens this week -- or in future months -- on what hes done while returning from past injuries.3. What will you consider a successful week for Woods?Barrie: Making the cut. I have zero expectations for his name to be on the leaderboard. However, his body and swing needs to be tested for four days of tournament golf. Including the galleries, the mileage and mindset thats required for competitive golf.Coachman: For me, its making the cut. Lets be honest. Tiger is not immune to pressure and if he hasnt played in over a year, it will naturally take some time. Tiger will tell you success is a win, but I think he even knows deep down it will be so hard to win this tournament. So our answers would be completely different.Collins:?It would be a successful week for Tiger to get through 54 holes without any pain, discomfort, limping, gimping or wincing. I say 54 holes because that would include the Wednesday pro-am and the first two rounds. After being gone for more than a year, low expectations are warranted, even for Tiger Woods.Harig: Playing 36 holes pain free, being able to properly practice after the rounds, showing signs of making progress by doing the routine things properly, such as the short game. If Woods misses the cut, that is not necessarily failure. It is the manner in which it happens that will ultimately determine the success of the week.Sobel: He hits some decent shots, doesnt reinjure himself and looks like hes having some fun on the course. Anything else is gravy. I wont judge his success this week solely on the scores and final result.4. More likely, Tiger shoots 70 or 80 in his first competitive round in more than a year Thursday?Barrie: 80. While I think hell be around a 76, this first round for him is going to feel like a major. All eyes are going to be on the greatest golfer in the past 40 years for a tournament that otherwise wouldnt get a second look. He knows this is his last chance at greatness. And his first round will likely be filled with rust and nerves.Coachman: If these are my two choices, I will say 80. I dont think Tiger completely will have all aspects of his game. And if things go south, they could really go south without knowing how his back will hold up or stand up to competitive swings. But we will all be watching with so much anticipation. I am hoping he gets on a roll and starts shooting darts like we know he can. This comeback is so exciting because we dont know what to expect. And that will be incredibly entertaining.Collins:?70*. Tiger hasnt forgotten how to play golf, at least I hope not. I dont know that hell break par, but hell be closer to 70 than 80 in Round 1. I added the asterisk because all this speculation is on the premise that hes 100 percent healthy making this start.Harig: Given that choice, I think you have to say 80, although Im not convinced that is what he will shoot. Silverado is not necessarily a hard layout. It is barely 7,200 yards and plays to par-72. Nobody shot in the 80s at this event a year ago and there were two scores of 79. It would be a poor sign if Woods returned shooting that high.Sobel:?I get the sense itll be closer to 70 than 80. But I also think itll be closer to 80 than 60. Ill let you figure out that math. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

BRUSSELS -- With the Van Damme Memorial celebrating its 40th year, Olympic champion Almaz Ayana will be looking to get the party going with a world record in the 5,000 meters. Miguel Sano Jersey .The meet is named after Belgian middle distance runner Ivo Van Damme, who died at age 22 a few months after winning two silver medals at the 1976 Montreal Games. Since then, it has become one of the most popular and best attended events on the athletics calendar with huge crowds and a spate of world records.Sebastian Coe, now the president of the IAAF, set the first world record at the famed track in 1981 with a blistering run over the mile. Ayana will be looking to add one more on Friday.Besides the Ethiopian runners world-record quest, the expected capacity crowd of 50,000 at the King Baudouin Stadium is set to give one of the loudest cheers when the Belgian womens 4x100 relay team receives the 2008 Olympic gold medals after Russia was stripped of the title this year for doping.On the opening morning of the Olympic track program last month in Rio de Janeiro, Ayana set one of the most stunning world records in decades when she shaved almost half a minute off the quarter-century-old 10,000 mark of Chinese runner Wang Junxia. Her stamina was unmatched and, at the time, it looked like she would shatter the 5,000 mark with equal ease during the final weekend of the Rio Games.Ayana left the pack standing after one third of that race, but over the last kilometer, when no one expected it, she slumped as fatigue caught up with her and she had to fight hard to take bronze.On Friday, she will need to push hard to make her last 5,000 of the season count. She is chasing the eight-year-old mark of 14 minutes, 11.15 seconds, held by Ethiopian great Tirunesh Dibaba. She already came close with the second best mark of all time in Rome in June, but a bad alignment of pacesetters did her in.After Rio, she went to rest and recover, meet organizer Wilfried Meert said. She will go for the record one more time. Its Dibabas record. It is not an easy one.Ambitiously, the Van Damme organizers are even looking for a second world record in the mens steeplechase, with Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto going for the record of 7:53.63, which Saif Saaeed Shaheen set at the King Baudouin Stadium a dozen years ago.At 21, Kipruto has the impetuousness of youth, but considering he has never broken the 8 minute mark, it will be a tall order. On several of his biggest wins and best times, though, he did not run full-out to the tape. He will on Friday.There are no easy record attempts, Meert said.One thing speaks in favor of all potential record breakers -- the weather. Often so fickle in Belgium, its expected to be balmy and dry for ideal running conditions.---Follow Raf Casert on Twitter at Byung-Ho Park Jersey .

Its the obvious question that most AFL fans are asking now Adelaide have emerged as a genuine premiership threat.How good would the Crows be if Patrick Dangerfield had stayed?Or, to put it another way, how well are they going without him?The former Crow has taken his game to new heights in 2016, standing alone as Brownlow Medal favourite at odds not dissimilar to the ones enjoyed by winner Nat Fyfe last year.Its impossible to say the Crows wouldnt be a better side without the 26-year-old in it, but its not a question anyone at West Lakes is keen to entertain.Weve moved into a different space now, coach Don Pyke said.Weve got guys who have come in and relished the opportunity thats been presented.To be honest, theyre playing their role and playing it really well. We look forward.Pyke is hoping that his team without their former champion can grow into a champion team, and on the evidence of the past two months, theyre well on the way.The Crows are the leagues form side after notcching seven-straight victories including three over finals-bound sides. Brian Dozier Jersey. .There was scarcely a poor performance on the field; even the teams lowest ball-getters played a role.Charlie Cameron and Mitch McGovern only had nine touches each but Cameron had seven tackles and McGovern kicked a classy snap when the contest was hot.McGovern could be the man most to benefit from Dangerfields departure, debuting in round one and playing every match this season.He hasnt stopped to consider the alternate reality where Dangerfield might have made a different choice.We dont think about it at all, he said.It was a big talking point last year but to the credit of the boys, weve filled the spot really well and you can see the benefits on the scoreboard.We had 10 individual goalkickers (against Carlton).We know were a good attacking side ... we all chip in. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

PITTSFORD, N. Victor Hedman Jersey .Y. -- Bills coach Doug Marrone grew frustrated after facing a second consecutive day of questions regarding defensive end Mario Williams absence from practice due to a sore foot. After saying Williams was still having his foot evaluated on Tuesday, Marrone lost his patience after being asked a fifth and final question about the player during a 12 1/2 minute post-practice briefing with the media. The first-year coach cut off a reporter to announce he wont answer any more questions regarding Williams until he receives a medical report from team doctors. "For me to speculate, I never speculate until I hear from the medical staff," Marrone said. "And I get frustrated, honestly, when it gets to a point where I feel like Ive tried to explain myself in how I handle injuries, OK? Ive answered the questions, and you keep coming at me, all right?" Marrone has been short on specifics since Williams complained of a sore foot and was held out of the teams training camp-opening practice on Sunday. Marrone said hes not spoken to anyone, including Williams, regarding the players status. The coach has yet to say which foot Williams hurt, and how or when the injury occurred. He has also not specified where Williams is being evaluated, except to say hes not present at the teams camp facility in suburban Rochester. Williams has not been spotted since the end of practice Sunday, when he declined comment and referred all questions about his injury to Marrone. The Bills made a big splash in free agency in March 2012, by signing Williams to a six-year, $100 million contract. Williams, however, had an inconsistent season, and was bothered by an injured left wrist, which he had surgically repaired during the teams bye week off in late October. He finished the season with a team-leading 10 1/2 sacks -- seven of them coming after he had the operation. Alex Killorn Jersey .com) - Following a late-game loss to the reigning NBA champs, the Toronto Raptors will look to sustain their recent high-level play as they travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers. Martin St. Louis Jersey .

Game 7, 2016 NBA Finals: Kyrie Irving with a game winner. Timo Werner Jersey . Reigning two-time MVP Stephen Curry against four-time MVP LeBron James. Clevelands curse vs. the Golden Boys of 73 wins. At one point 44.5 million people were watching LeBron vs. Steph, and the game had an average TV rating of 15.7, the highest-rated NBA game since Michael Jordans final championship dagger against the Jazz in 1998. The intrigue, storylines, and brands of the teams and players were just as captivating as the game itself. It was must-see TV.April 5, 2010, NCAA title game: Gordon Hayward comes within inches of giving Butler a national championship instead of Duke. The stars? Gordon Hayward and Shelvin Mack vs. Jon Scheyer and Kyle Singler. Over 48 million people tuned in to at least part of a game featuring the school from Indiana, with less than 5,000 students enrolled full time, yet their final game in the 2010 season against Duke drew a 15.0 average TV rating. At the time, this was a better rating than any NBA game since 2002, and not much worse than college footballs 2010 BCS National Championship between Alabama and Texas (17.2 rating).Wait, what? How does a college sporting event featuring two teams with combined undergraduate enrollment under 11,000 outperform any game of its professional counterpart for the previous seven years? How did only 2 percent more households that same year watch the football equivalent featuring Texas and Alabama?Fall may have just begun, but for college basketball fans, March cant come soon enough. Football may be Americas game, and baseball is Americas pastime. What is college basketball? I like to call it the proud owner of the title Americas Tournament. While more people in the U.S. would rather watch football than basketball on a Thursday night, when the calendar turns to March, that gap nearly vanishes.Fans love the Cinderella, at least one of which appears in the NCAA tournament seemingly every year. George Mason, Butler, VCU and Wichita State -- all are from smaller conferences and made it to the Final Four with an 8-seed or higher in the last 11 years. No other major college or professional sport can consistently produce teams that make the unexpected happen as often as the NCAA tournament. Why?I conjecture it has to do with three main reasons:? The size of the field? Single elimination? Mis-seedingField of 68The first couple years of the College Football Playoff have been a great success. The regular season is under increased scrutiny, and youre guaranteed to get four very good teams in the playoff even if not everyone agrees they are definitely the four best. First, lets settle the obvious. The teams that make the field of 68 arent the best 68 teams in the sport. Unlike football, there is intrigue that all 351 Division I teams players control their own destiny to the national championship. Some teams way outside the best 68 in the country make the tournament. Some may argue this makes the NCAA tournament watered-down, but that couldnt be further from the truth.Although 68 teams make the tournament, in a given year generally 40-45 of those make the NCAA tournament as an at-large, which is the top 11-13 percent of all teams (19 percent of all teams make the tournament including the automatic qualifiers). This actually creates a more even playing field. Compare that to the NBA and NHL (the top 53 percent of teams make the playoffs), MLB (top 33 percent) and NFL (top 37.5 percent). If the top 40 percent of teams were in the NCAA tournament in 2016, according to ESPNs Basketball Power Index (BPI), that would have put High Point and Northeastern, teams few casual fans are familiar with, among the final teams in the field.The 2010-11 VCU Rams were an 11th-seeded at-large team and thus were considered among the top 45 teams in the country, according to the selection committee. This means they were among the top 13 percent of all the teams in the country. For a financial comparison, what kind of salary would put someone in the top 13 percent? According to the U.S. Census in 2014, the top 13 percent of household incomes in the United States were at $145,000 per year or more. Is the NCAA tournament watered-down? Its as watered-down as a country club that requires a household income of at least $145,000 to join. There may be some weaker competition in the highest seeds of the NCAA tournament bracket, but mostly it is a tournament for the basketball-rich.]Survive and advanceLets consider a few examples that may demonstrate how survive-or-go-home games increase the chances of weaker teams winning, and by extension the excitement of the tournament.Team A has a 61 percent chance to beat Team B on a neutral court. Suppose both teams get a 4 percent bump for playing at home. In a seven-game series, with Team A having home-court advantage, the probability is that Team A has a 74 percent to win the series. In a win-or-go-home, single-game elimination on a neutral court, Team A will advance only 61 percent of the time. The NCAA tournament gives weaker teams a much better chance at advancing than the NBA playoffs. Lets say teams seeded No. 13 or higher have, on average, a 7 percent chance to win a round-of-64 game. Whats the chance that at least one of them will win? The answer is 72 percent. Going back to 2002, only twice in 15 years has no team seeded 13 or higher advanced to the round of 32.Contrast this with the opening-round series in the NBA, which feature a best-of-seven format. In the past five seasons, only one team out of 20 (5 percent) among the bottom quarter of playoff teams (seeds 7 or 8) advanced past the first round (the Philadelphia 76ers upended the Chicago Bulls in 2012). In the NCAA tournament, 12 teams out of 80 (15 percent) in the bottom quarter of tourney teams (seeds 13-16) advanced out of the first round. This, of course, is a limited sample, but it demonstrates the added uncertainty and therefore excitement a single-game, win-or-go-home scenario creates.Maybe winning one game doesnt make team a Cinderella, but winning two or more does. In 2016, BPI expected an average of 2.3 teams seeded 9-16 to make the Sweet 16. In the NCAA tournament, unlike college football, it is not a question of if a small school can win on a big stage -- it is a question of, which one?Committees human errorMost of the buzz regarding the field of 68 is about who the favorite is and who got left out, but the bigger question is, Who got mis-seeded? The committee doesnt mis-seed as much when analyzing a teams resume as it does when analyzing a teams actual strength. A team may have a weak resume due to bad luck in a few games and still be one of the stronger teams in the country. BPI accounts for strength, and very often a team is much stronger than it appears.Take, for example, Mr. Davidson 2008, Stephen Curry. His team was awarded a No. 10 seed, presumably because it was in a weaker conference and glaringly had seven nonconference losses. The context of those seven, how close the games were, and where the games were played are crucial context to evaluate how good a team is. Three of those losses were to UNC, Duke and UCLA, all very good teams that season, and another was to ACC school NC State. BPI saw that the Wildcats were the 15th-best team in the nation heading into the tournament that year, a far cry from the 10th-seeded lens most people saw them through. While the 15th-best team isnt expected to be in the Elite Eight, it shouldnt be a surprise when they are.Combine having a relatively small percentage of the top teams making the tournament, the randomness that occurs from having only one game to play each round, and the perceived strength of the team sometimes being much different than reality, and you get a lot of excitement and a lot of madness. Will there be a Cinderella in the tournament? A double-digit seed in the Final Four? A small school making a name for itself? Its happened before and it will surely happen again. When? Odds-on favorite is six months from now. Leroy Sane Jersey .

Renault has turned its focus to its 2017 car but is in no rush to confirm which drivers will be at the helm for that campaign.Rookie Palmer is still searching for his first F1 points and thinks Budapest could be a perfect place to end that wait.When asked if the Hungarian Grand Prix was an opportunity to prove he is worthy of another year, he said: Theres always a good opportunity. Every weekend is a good opportunity. I would say the summer break is when people start to think about next year more and for us I dont expect there is going to be any decision here until much later in the season.But of course every weekend I want to show what I can do. I think this track... hopefully it can be an opportunity for us to find ourselves in a good position. The last couple of years there has been incidents and chances for cars that shouldnt necessarily on pace be in the top 10. Im just trying to impress at every race to be honest.

The team was only bought seven months ago so I think were still trying to understand where we are at completely and I dont see why the need for a decision on drivers so early really. Ive got another load of races to play out and to show what I can do, Im sure its going to be much later on in the season.Palmer thinks he has already demonstrated his ability to the team.I want to be driving for Renault next year. Unless all the other drives are confirmed then there could be opportunities elsewhere but Im fully focused on driving for Renault first and foremost.Im here now and they are the team that can see clearly what Im doing through a weekend and can see all of the potential that Ive got, so I think they can understand what I can do in the future which is really the aim. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

Canadian law professor Richard McClarens report supported allegations made by Grigory Rodchenkov, the former director of the WADA-accredited lab in Moscow. Rodchenkov fled Russia and detailed the scam for The New York Times in May.Because of the report, WADA recommended banning all Russian athletes from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.BASEBALLHOUSTON -- A federal judge sentenced the former scouting director of the St. Louis Cardinals to nearly four years in prison for hacking the Houston Astros player personnel database and email system in an unusual case of high-tech cheating involving two Major League Baseball clubs.Christopher Correa had pleaded guilty in January to five counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer from 2013 to at least 2014, the same year he was promoted to director of baseball development in St. Louis.

The schools new athletic director is just intent on doing his part to make sure they dont happen again.Rhoades was formally introduced by Baylor, a program reeling from allegations that it didnt properly handle sexual assault claims against some football players.His introduction came on the first day of Big 12 football media days, and a day before interim president David Garland and two Baylor regents make a presentation to the leagues board of directors and answer questions. That board, made up of league presidents and chancellors, could possibly levy sanctions against Baylor.GOLFTROON, Scotland -- Camilo Villegas of Colombia pulled out of the Olympics because he is trying to keep his job on the PGA Tour.Villegas had indicated for the last two weeks that he wanted to be in Rio for golfs return to the Olympics for the first time since 1904.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Toni Kroos late score ensured Real Madrid won its home opener over a feisty Celta Vigo 2-1 on Saturday, while Atletico Madrid stumbled in a second straight round of the Spanish league.Atletico was frustrated by a newly promoted side for the second time in a week after Diego Simeones bunch drew at Leganes 0-0. That followed its 1-1 stalemate with Alaves in its opener.Combined with Madrids two wins, Atletico trails its crosstown rival by four points from the start of what it hoped could be another three-team title race along with defending champion Barcelona.Atletico forward Antione Griezmann was scathing with his criticism of the teams start to the season.If we continue like this we will be fighting to avoid relegation, Griezmann said. We are angry. We have to get our act together because this is slipping away from us. We must work to get back to being ourselves.Kroos drilled a long-range shot along the turf and in off the post for the 81st-minute winner at the Santiago Bernabeu.Playing without the injured Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, Madrid took an hour to break through when Alvaro Morata scored a rebound from a save by goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez.Celta midfielder Fabian Orellana responded with an equalizer seven minutes later.We believed until the end and pulled it off, Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. We played a so-so match. Celta was a very good team.While Madrids Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, and Morata all hit the woodwork, Celta squandered dangerous moves that it continued to mount until the final whistle. The visitors only lacked the scoring touch that new Manchester City forward Manuel Nolito Agudo provided for the previous three seasons.We played one of our best matches at this stadium, Celta manager Eduardo Berizzo said. I liked our attitude. We were able to take the game to them. This is an example to others who face opponents that belong to another category.Elsewhere, Valencia slumped to a second consecutive loss after falling at Eibar 1-0, while Real Sociedad got on track by winnning at Osasuna 2-0. Rickey Henderson Jersey. Valencias latest defeat comes with the club close to selling Germany defender Shkodran Mustafi to Arsenal, and Barcelona negotiating to sign away striker Paco Alcacer. Neither player was on Valencias team at Eibar.Celtas five-man midfield led by Orellana caused Madrid unrelenting trouble.Theo Bongonda went the closest to scoring for Celta in the first half when he won possession, hurdled a tackle, and fired into the side netting of Kiko Casillas goal.Missing firepower up front, Zidane turned to Luka Modric for Madrids biggest threat. The Croatia midfielder tested Alvarez with long strikes, hitting the bar a half-hour in.To start the second half, Celta mounted three attacks in a row that lacked only a final, precise pass to put Casilla under pressure.Thats when Bale took a step forward, blasting a free kick that Alvarez pushed onto his bar before Morata put the hosts ahead.Modric cued the opening goal by intercepting a poor pass by Alvarez, who then blocked Marco Asensios weak effort. Morata was there to fire in the rebound for his first goal since returning from Juventus this summer.Celtas equalizer went through Pablo Hernandez, Daniel Wass and John Guidetti before Orellana beat Casilla from distance with a right-footed shot into the corner of the net.Kroos got the decisive strike, but Celta went close to grabbing a second goal in a back-and-forth exchange in the dying minutes.Zidane also said Colombia midfielder James Rodriguez, who has lost his starting role, will remain at the club despite rumors of his exit.A minute of silence was held before kickoff in memory of the earthquake victims in Italy.At Leganes, Atletico could go no closer than shots by Griezmann, Kevin Gameiro and Yannick Carraso saved by goalie Jon Serantes, whose Leganes remained unbeaten in its debut topflight campaign.Barcelona visits Athletic Bilbao on Sunday seeking a second league win. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

The English trio of Danny Willett, Chris Paisley and Chris Hanson sat just a single shot off the lead midway through the third round of the weather-affected Italian Open in Monza.Masters winner Willett is finalising his preparations for the Ryder Cup later this month and had just one bogey through 44 holes to sit at 13 under, one shot behind Frenchman Alexander Levy.Lengthy weather delays on days one and two, including thunderstorms and heavy rain, meant tournament organisers were playing catch-up and Willett, in the final group, will return on Sunday morning to complete his third round before the final circuit can get under way.Paisley and Hanson were playing alongside Willett, with local favourite Francesco Molinari also at 13 under having played 10 holes of his third round.While Paisley and Hanson decided to putt out on the ninth green, with the latter making an impressive birdie, Willett will have to hole his putt before taking on the back nine.It was tricky to read the greens, with the fading light its always tough to get the pace, he told I was rolling it pretty good, I just didnt quite get it going and shaved a few holes. So it was a bit frustrating.We neeed a real good day of weather tomorrow because there are a lot of guys with 27 holes, at least, left to play. Marcus Mariota Jersey.

Molinari -- the 2006 champion -- had five birdies and a bogey to excite the local crowd as he aims to become just the second Italian to win his national open twice.Englands Richard Bland was in the group at 12 under, a shot clear of Ryder Cup trio Andy Sullivan, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Rafa Cabrera Bello, and Scot Jamie McLeary who made a hole-in-one on the 10th with his first shot of the day. Cheap Jerseys 2020Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks seek sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division, and keep the injury-depleted Los Angeles Kings from securing a share of the top spot, when the cross-town rivals meet Sunday at the Honda Center.The Ducks, who have won five of their past seven games, took over first place Thursday night with a 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils. But the Edmonton Oilers moved into a tie for first by beating the Dallas Stars on the road Saturday night. So going into Sundays game, the Ducks and Oilers lead the Kings by two points.Enhancing the intensity of Sundays game is the fact that Anaheim won 12 of the previous 16 against Los Angeles, including a 4-0 rout at the Staples Center in the teams first meeting this season Nov. 1.Its probably one of the best rivalries Ive ever played in, Ducks center Ryan Kesler told Its always a fun game to play. Every game is hard-fought.Kesler figures to play a pivotal role. The 13-year veteran, who scored seven of his team-high eight goals this month, needs one more to establish a personal record for November. Regarded as one the NHLs best defensive forwards, Kesler also will be expected to stifle the Kings top two centers, Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter.His value gets increased if its a Kopitar or a Carter, Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said about Kesler to the Los Angeles Times. As a coach, you feel comfortable playing him against those players. In big games, Kes has a way to step up to the next level. He always seems to have a little bit more to give you.Like Anaheim, the Kings take a two-game winning streak into Sundays game. Unlike the Ducks, however, Los Angeles has been playing without key contributoors. Roger Maris Jersey.

Carter leads the team with seven goals and 14 points, including five goals and nine points in his past eight games.Jeff has carried the team on his back, Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter told after Saturdays 4-2 victory against New Jersey. Every time he was on the ice, he either had the puck or was making sure we were going to get the puck back. Hes shown a lot of leadership and has been a really, really good player for us.But the Kings biggest loss has been in the nets. Jonathan Quick, a finalist for last seasons Vezina Trophy, has not played since injuring his groin Oct. 12 in the season opener against the San Jose Sharks. Quicks backup, Jeff Zatkoff, missed 11 games because of his own groin injury.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays survived their first elimination game of the postseason on Tuesday by defeating the Cleveland Indians 5-1 in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. Fernandinho Jersey .Now they must try to do it again in Game 5 on Wednesday at Rogers Centre.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons has given the assignment to right-hander Marco Estrada, who took the loss in Game 1 despite pitching Torontos only complete game of the season -- a 2-0 loss to Corey Kluber.The Indians will go with left-handed rookie Ryan Merritt, who will be making his postseason debut after spending most of the season at Triple-A Columbus.The Blue Jays five runs Tuesday were more than they had scored in the three previous games combined (three). It helped when a home run by Josh Donaldson gave them a 1-0 lead in the third and an RBI flare single by Ezequiel Carrera in the fourth gave them a 2-0 lead.You know, I liked being able to get the lead there early on in the game, Donaldson said. We havent been able to get a lead in this series. And I felt like it was very important for us to get out to a lead. And even if it was one run, whatever. ... In the playoffs, these games arent going to come easy to win. Theyve played great defense. Theyve pitched well and had timely hits.The Indians were able to get through Tuesday without using their two best relievers, right-hander Cody Allen and left-hander Andrew Miller. Both played vital roles in the first three games of the series. They will be rested for Game 5.I think that helps, Indians manager Terry Francona said. Certainly when youre down one trying to keep it at one so we have a chance, but also recognizing that if Miller and Cody pitch, that would have been four out of five pretty high-stress, high-leverage innings.(I) decided to try to go a different route. Didnt work out as well as we wanted, but we do have those guys available with a day off behind it.Edwin Encarnacion added a two-run single and Kevin Pillar had a sacrifice fly.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons felt like his team approached the game like they normally would.Really, everything, almost like a normal day, Gibbons said. Obviously its not, but it was almost like a normal regular-season game. They were nice, loose and relaxed, well aware of the circumstances. They showed up today like they always do and played a good ballgame.Francona was down 3-0 in the 2004 ALCS when he was managing the Boston Red Sox. They became the first major-league team to come back from a 3-0 disadvantage, beating the New York Yankees in seven games. They then went on to win the World Series.Im proud of that, obviously, Francona said before the game Tuesday. That was a wonderful four days. I dont think the first three were that great. But it ended -- it was fun to live through that and to actually live. So I guess if people ask, I dont mind it, because like I said, I was proud of those guys. ... But this is a different time, a different team, very different circumstances.Merritt has pitched in four regular-season games, including one start, and is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA. In 24 starts at Columbus, he was 11-8 with a 3.70 ERA.If you told me at the start of the season I was going to be pitching in the ALCS, I wouldve thought you were crazy, Merritt said. Its awesome. Im glad its here.Estrada allowed two runs in eight innings in the 2-0 loss in Game 1 at Progressive Field. He allowed six hits and one walk and struck out six.In his regular-season start against Cleveland this season, he allowed three runs in five innings. In two career regular-season starts vs. Cleveland, he is 0-0 with a 3.75 ERA.Weve got to win, Estrada said. Thats basically it. Im going to go out and do what Ive basically done all year and not really think about it as an elimination game. Ill just think about it just as another game. My job is to try to go nine innings and give up zero runs. So it doesnt matter if its the last game of the season, the first game, you want to do that every time out. Willian Jersey .

Los Angeles didnt record its sixth win until Dec. 30, 2015, at Boston en route to a franchise-worst 17-65 campaign.Their improved play has been mainly the by-product of their up-tempo offense, a system Walton incorporated here after two seasons with the Golden State Warriors.

We had a schedule kind of planned out, but its pretty tentative. Weve mostly been playing it by ear.
