Much of the focus is on Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott, but they have received better-than-expected contributions from?others.?Read more.Grade: A-minusNew York Giants:?The Giants have leaned heavily on their rookie class, including starting four of its members Sunday night against Dallas. Wide receiver Sterling Shepard has evolved into the teams No. 2 target.?Read more.San Diego Chargers:?Selected No. 3 overall, defensive end Joey Bosa was a surprise pick by the Chargers. He has 5.5 sacks in eight games and has been a key contributor to San Diegos stout run defense.?Read more.Grade: B-plusBaltimore Ravens:?The Ravens recent drafts havent lived up to the franchises gold standard. But the 2016 class is making an immediate impact and is a big reason why they are in the thick of the playoff race.?Read more.Chicago Bears:?The Bears season went off the rails weeks ago, but the organization can take solace in the rookie class. Six rookies have started games, and three have all but locked up starting jobs for 2017.?Read more.Denver Broncos:?All eight players in the Broncos draft class made the 53-man roster, and running back Devontae Booker, who is now the teams primary back, is leading the way.?Read more.Kansas City Chiefs:?The Chiefs rookie class has been better than expected, and second-round defensive lineman?Chris Jones and fifth-round wide receiver Tyreek Hill both have made a major impact.?Read more.New Orleans Saints:?The Saints appear to have hit on both of their 2016 second-rounders, and this class has the potential to become one of the strongest draft classes in the Sean Payton-Mickey Loomis era.?Read more.Oakland Raiders:?The Raiders had 14 rookies on their 53-man roster entering Game 13, including all seven draft picks. In fact, five of the seven picks have started at least two games.?Read more.Pittsburgh Steelers:?That early-1970s Steelers defensive lineup was harder to crack, but what corner Artie Burns, safety Sean Davis and defensive tackle Javon Hargrave are doing is still quite impressive.?Read more.Grade: BBuffalo Bills:?The Bills rookie class has been the NFLs toughest to evaluate because of injuries to first-round pick Shaq Lawson and second-round pick Reggie Ragland.?Read more.Detroit Lions:?Bob Quinns first draft class as Lions general manager featured a lot of linemen, a backup quarterback for the future and a long-snapper. But so far, it has been a pretty strong.?Read more.Indianapolis Colts:?The Colts went into the draft needing to improve their offensive line, and they picked four linemen. Two of them -- Ryan Kelly and Joe Haeg -- have been fixtures in the starting lineup.?Read more.Jacksonville Jaguars:?It looks as if theres at least one future Pro Bowler, potentially a double-digit sack guy, and at least two other starters among the Jaguars top four picks.?Read more.Miami Dolphins:?The Dolphins are in playoff contention, partially because of immediate production from their rookie class, including first-round pick Laremy Tunsil and third-round pick Kenyan Drake.?Read more.New England Patriots:?The Patriots didnt have a first-round pick, but third-rounder Joe Thuney was inserted into the starting lineup at left guard on Day 1 of?spring practices and hasnt moved off the spot.?Read more.Philadelphia Eagles:?Its no secret that the Eagles class will be defined by the career of Carson Wentz.

The wild card is quarterback Christian Hackenberg.?Read more.San Francisco 49ers:?The results have been mixed, with three members of the class looking like potential long-term starters, another flashing some upside and three already gone from the organization.?Read more.Tennessee Titans:?GM Jon Robinsons first draft class produced two starters, one regular contributor, one capable player stuck behind an excellent starter and one guy whos getting a late-season look.?Read more.Grade: C-plusAtlanta Falcons:?Three of the Falcons top four picks -- first-rounder Keanu Neal, second-rounder Deion Jones and fourth-rounder DeVondre Campbell -- are starters on defense.?Read more.Cincinnati Bengals:?While the Bengals rookies could prove to be valuable down the road, theyre mostly a cast of unknowns at this point. Thats nothing new for Cincinnati.?Read more.Grade: CHouston Texans:?Aside from glimpses of potential from the Texans first and last picks, the rookie class has not been a major contributor through 12 games.?Read more.Seattle Seahawks:?First-round pick Germain Ifedi has started 10 games at right guard and flashed the potential the team was excited about when it used the 31st overall pick on him in the spring.?Read more.Grade: C-minusCarolina Panthers:?The Panthers draft class was mostly about replacing Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman and upgrading the defense in general. Its still a work in progress.?Read more.Green Bay Packers:?Like usual, the Packers kept all seven of their draft picks coming out of training camp, and theyre all still on the roster. But their impact has been minimal.?Read more.Los Angeles Rams:?No. 1 pick Jared Goff spent the first 10 weeks of the season on the bench, but he seems to grow more comfortable every week. It?is difficult to assess him until he gets a bit more help, however.?Read more.Washington Redskins:?The early returns havent been good, save for a couple of bright spots, in part because of three injured players. In two years, the contributions from this class could be a lot more significant.?Read more.Grade: D-plusCleveland Browns:?The Browns drafted 14 players, and all of them made the roster coming out of training camp. None has had a sit-up-and-take-notice kind of season, however.?Read more.Grade: DArizona Cardinals:?This has been the most unproductive Cardinals rookie class of the Bruce Arians-Steve Keim tenure. None of the five still on the roster has been an active part of the offense or defense.

World Cup-winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolaris first task in trying to take Guangzhou Evergrande to a third Asian (AFC) Champions League will be to face a team coached by a 28-year-old woman. Nike Air Max 90 Outlet .The draw has pitted the Chinese powerhouse against Hong Kong club Eastern F.C., whose coach, Chan Yuen-ting, became the first woman to lead a mens team to a title in a professional top-flight league when Eastern won the 2016 Hong Kong Premier League.On Feb. 22, Eastern will play its first-ever game in the AFC Champions League against Guangzhou in the southern Chinese city, just 75 miles (120 kilometers) away from Hong Kong, in front of more than 40,000 fans.The Asian Champions League is a valuable opportunity for us to learn from opponents like Guangzhou and improve ourselves, Chan told the Associated Press.Scolari, who led Brazil to the 2002 World Cup and Portugal to the final of the 2004 European Championships, is the most-famous and -decorated male coach that a female has ever matched wits against.I am happy to meet Scolari, said Chan.This is my great honor to play against his team. He has good experience and is very intelligent.Guangzhou has won the past six Chinese Super League titles and the 2013 and 2015 Asian championships. The ambitious club contributes numerous players to the Chinese national team rosters and is home to Brazilian internationals Paulinho and Ricardo Goulart, as well as Colombian star Jackson Martinez, signed from Atletico Madrid in February for around $44 million.We know how strong Guangzhou is, added Chan. We will try very hard to show our quality. From the beginning, we expected this. Every game will be very tough for us. We just need to improve and prepare for the games as well as we can.Moya Dodd, vice president of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), is a former womens player for Australia and an advocate of the womens game. She believes that it is the former boss of English Premier League giant Chelsea who has the most to lose.Gender aside, this is a game between one of club footballs rising powers and a team that is less resourced and less fancied, said Dodd. On the coaches bench you have a rising star taking on one of footballs old masters -- a World Cup winner, no less. Its a great story for the fans, and all the pressure will be on Scolari.Mark Sutcliffe, the CEO of the Hong Kong Football Association, welcomes Chans exploits and wishes her well against one of the most famous coaches in the game.A match of this significance should really attract the fans and create huge excitement, said Sutcliffe. Its an amazing story, one that you couldnt make up. Perhaps Hollywood would be interested?There is some hope for Eastern. In the second round of qualification for the 2018 World Cup, Hong Kong met China on two occasions. Both games ended 0-0. Sutcliffe believes there could be a pattern.Its actually a very daunting challenge. In terms of scale, resources and quality, you cant compare the two sides, said Sutcliffe. You would have to say that the odds are really stacked against Eastern. Having said that, this is football, and anything can happen.China does not have the famous foreign stars at Guangzhous call, and any result for Eastern would make more international headlines for Chan, who was named the AFC Female Coach of the Year in November.I have received some awards and attention from the world, said Chan. However, it is not important what people say. I just want to stay humble and work hard and learn to be a good coach for my club.It is a big game for Hong Kong soccer too, which has seen the former British colony awarded an automatic spot in the Asian Champions League. Chans increasing fame can only be a positive for the sport.Ms. Chan has a huge following here in Hong Kong, said Sutcliffe. She is an inspiring figure for those of us involved in football, and the accolades keep pouring in. She seems to be taking it all in her stride and remains humble and grounded.It is not just Hong Kong that would benefit from some giant-killing in February. For Dodd, this is an opportunity for a female coach to, perhaps, breakthrough what she calls the grass ceiling.The closer you get to the field, the harder it is for a woman, said Dodd. Its a positive sign that growing up in the womens game can provide the experience and learning to launch a coaching career in any part of the game -- including the Champions League.Chan just wants to get on with it.I hope that my football story will encourage women coaches to go for their dream, but I believe that I am not representing anyone. I just need to do my job. Nike Air Max Womens Online .

Cheap Mens Air Max 90 . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. http://www.airmax2018black.us/ . Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night.Jordan Spieth enjoyed a short spell at the top of the leaderboard at the AT&T Byron Nelson before Ben Crane stood out from the crowd among the late starters to eke out a one-shot lead going into the weekend. World No 2 Spieth, who has a surprisingly poor record in his home state since finishing in a tie for 16th here as a 16-year-old, fired a five-under 65 to join Brooks Koepka and Bud Cauley in a share of the lead after the morning starters had completed their rounds.When the late starters got going, overnight leader Sergio Garcia signed for a 66 to join them at 11 under, but it was Crane who starred with eight birdies in his round of 63 moving him to 12 under after two rounds. On Thursday, Crane had completed his first bogey-free round in 36 attempts to join a nine-way tie for eighth, and although he did drop a shot on the eighth second time around, he could have few complaints about how they day ended. Ben Crane leads going into the third round in Texas As he did in the opening round, Spieth again dropped a shot on the par-three 13th, but otherwise had six birdies to keep himself firmly in contention.I took advantage of the easier holes, a couple of the long holes, I found both par fives in two and two-putted for birdies, the 22-year-old said on the PGA Tour website. Spieth is right in contention in his home state - one off the pace Just very limited mistakes. Cheap Air Max Black. Ive three-putted the 13th twice now but really those are the only mistakes Ive made this week.Garcia, like Crane, began his round in the afternoon but could not match his opening-day efforts, carding four birdies in an error-free round of 66 that left him in the tie for second place.The suspension of play early on Thursday evening left a handful of players to complete their rounds on Friday morning, and Danny Lee and Johnson Wagner used the opportunity to join Garcia at the top of the leaderboard as they matched his round of 63.However, they fell away in their second rounds with Lee dropped into a tie for eighth with a 69 and Wagner managing only an even-par 70 after three bogeys in four holes on the front nine. Sergio Garcia is in a four-way tie for second place after a 66 The round of the day belonged to DA Points, who had six birdies and a bogey on the front nine to make the turn at five- under, and he was threatening the course record of 60 after three straight birdies from the 11th to the 13th.However, he played the final five holes for par to settle for a 62 which vaulted him up into a share of 16th place at seven under.Watch all the excitement of the AT&T Byron Nelson throughout the weekend live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf  Also See: AT&T Byron Nelson leaders Garcia makes bright start First round highlights Spieth: Hard work paying off Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

jordans 2018 reported on a special custom Nike Kyrie 3 that had emerged on social media courtesy of Sneaker Room. Now, one of the designers of that shoe, @beensmove on Instagram, has taken to social media to explain some of its backstory. The custom Kyrie 3 was inspired not only by Kyrie’s mother who had passed from illness but also the designer’s grandmother, who herself passed from breast cancer when he was just 14. Her name was Rose, thus explaining the large gold and red roses displayed on the uppers of both shoes. The colorway also serves as a thanks to moms, grandmothers and motherly women everywhere for their strength and support. The Celtics’ star point guard wore the touching tribute last night in Brooklyn in his return to the court from a facial fracture – a fitting display of resilience considering the inspiration behind his choice of footwear.
Nike Air Jordan 2017 is back this summer, and that means some new exclusive footwear was just spotted at the event. The elite-level youth basketball camp held in an old airport hangar in Southern California was host to many of the nation’s top high school players and a select group of college athletes, and the luck attendees all left with a very special pair of the LeBron 14, KD 10, or PG1 in a PE colorway designed just for the Academy. To go along with the airport hangar and bootcamp-style theme of the event, each shoe features a military-inspired look with added details and logos for the Nike Basketball Academy.looks like all three shoes will remain exclusive to the players at the event.

LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. http://www.csidusa.com/ .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. NEW YORK -- It was late in this US Open semifinal match, and once again, the lopsided nature of Serena Williams résumé versus her opponents didnt matter. Same as it didnt save Williams in four of her past five Grand Slam losses before this. This time, Williams tormentor wasnt her Australian Open conqueror Angelique Kerber, or Spanish upstart Garbine Muguruza, who surprised her in this years French Open final. It wasnt even a wily veteran like Roberta Vinci, who derailed Williams run at a calendar-year Grand Slam on this same court a year ago with arguably the most monumental upset in tennis history.Thursday night on the floor of Arthur Ashe Stadium, the new predicament Williams found herself in was a win-or-go-home tiebreaker against 24-year-old Karolina Pliskova, a 10th-seeded but largely unproven Czech. Williams was faced with the unenviable chore of trying to survive against the most prolific ace machine on tour. This while playing with an aching left knee -- a new ailment that only a few insiders knew that she had until after the match, which ended ingloriously for her with a double fault that sealed Pliskovas stunning 6-2, 7-6 (5) win.Just like that, all the history Williams was chasing -- a tie with Chris Evert for the record of seven US Open titles, a chance to break her tie with Steffi Graf at 22 majors, most in the Open era -- was put off for another day. When Williams wakes up Monday morning, she also officially wont be ranked No. 1 (Kerber will) leaving Williams forever moored in a tie with Graf for most consecutive weeks in the top spot, with 186.Im not talking about No. 1, thank you, Williams said during an occasionally terse news conference in which she allowed that her knee mightve contributed to the loss. Williams, though, hotly disputed fatigue from her three-set win over Simona Halep a day earlier was a factor.For Williams, who turns 35 on Sept. 26, the defeat nonetheless continued a troubling trend. By any measure -- the statistics, the anecdotal evidence, the way she has dominated tennis for two decades now -- Williams is the greatest player in tennis history, bar none. Theres no need to confine the praise to only the womens side of the sport.Including last months Rio Olympics, where Williams was sent crashing out in the third round by Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, what has been astonishing isnt just who Williams has lost to in the biggest moments the past year -- its how she has been losing. Even when her body hasnt betrayed her, as it did in the past month, nerves seem to haunt her. Her confidence seems more brittle than youd expect, given all that she has done. Errors come in bunches. Opponents are rushing in to capitalize.Williams has now lost four of her past five major tournaments to players that she had a combined career record of 18-2 against before she lost to them.Players still deeply respect Williams. But other than her win against Kerber for the Wimbledon title, Williams just doesnt project the same self-assurance or strike the same off-the-charts fear into her opponents that she used to. Cheap Nike Shox. And Muguruza had no problem saying that out loud after her French Open title win, telling reporters that players are seeing that Williams is more beatable now.Of course, Muguruza hasnt personally been able to build on her breakthrough win. She has fallen into the same struggles that Kerber admittedly did after she won her first Slam title. But still other players have performed like they agree with the Spaniard -- playing Williams doesnt spark the same feeling of inevitability it used to. Other players just seem to see a little daylight now against Williams, where before, they saw little to none.Romanias Halep said as much, too, after very nearly beating Williams in their three-set dogfight on Wednesday night. Afterward, she rued her failure to break Williams in the first game of the final set, saying if shed done that then, the ending wouldve been a different story.Pliskova played like one of the new believers, too. Williams is generally thought to have the greatest serve in the history of the game, but Pliskovas serve and return games were both better than Serenas on Thursday night.And the thing is, Pliskova had never even been past the third round of a Grand Slam tournament until this giant-killing 11-match summer winning streak shes on, which also included a win over Serenas sister, Venus, earlier in this tournament. With the victory, Pliskova became only the fourth player to beat both William sisters at the same Slam, joining Martina Hingis, Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin.I said I dont believe it -- but actually, I do believe [I won], Pliskova said. I always knew I had a chance to beat anyone if Im playing my game.For Serena, who is used to doing the dictating, it was a frustrating night. But she refused to go as far as her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, did and blame this loss on her knee injury. (Mouratoglou said she suffered it against Halep on Wednesday, but Williams said she suffered a few rounds earlier.) The most Williams would allow was being hampered by the knee caused her focus to waver.I was making errors that I never make. So many simple, simple shots that I couldve easily made, she said.Williams has been so extraordinary for so long, any wobble in her play seems like a seismic event. But she has now had four such upsets in her past five Slams. She isnt just blowing these matches; her rivals are going out and taking them.Williams has dug herself out of too many trenches before in her majestic 22-year career to rush to any big conclusions that this is the beginning of her end as the games greatest player. But it has been happening for a year now.And its only natural to wonder.

LA CAVERNE DU PONT-DARC, France -- A gastronomical, sporting and cultural glance at Stage 13 of the Tour de France on Friday:Region: The 37. Nike Air Max Womens 2018 Online .5-kilometer (23-mile) individual time trial was contested in the Ardeche region from Bourg-Saint-Andeol to La Caverne du Pont-Darc. It featured a tricky seven-kilometer climb at the start and a hilly finish.Aperitif: Liqueur de Chataigne. A chestnut-flavored specialty from the Ardeche that can be served chilled on its own or mixed with white wine or Champagne.Baguette and butter: Amid reinforced security a day after the deadly attack in Nice, the Tour rolled on and defending champion Chris Froome extended his overall lead. Thousands of people lined the route to celebrate the Tour and pay homage to the dozens killed and injured by a truck which drove through beachfront crowds celebrating Bastille Day. Froome finished second to the Netherlands Tom Dumoulin in the time trial but ahead of all of his chief rivals.Plat du jour: Maouche is a slow-cooked specialty of the Ardeche that entails stuffing a pigs stomach with kale and dried prunes. Best served with a crique -- a flat cake made from grated potatoes (known as tartifle in the local Occitan dialect) that is fried in butter.Culture: Full of rivers, streams, and deep gorges, the Ardeche is an outdoorsmans paradise, perfect for canoe and kayak enthusiasts, rock climbers, and cyclists.Vin du jour: Condrieu whites from the northern Rhone Valley are treasured by wine amateurs across the world. Made with Viognier grapes cultivated on steep granite slopes, this delicate but intense wine features notes of plums, apricots, and ripe pears. Pairs perfectly with fish and poultry.History: The Decorated Cave of Pont dArc in the Ardeche contains drawings of mammoths, human footprints, and other art carved about 30,000 years ago. Among the oldest known human drawings, the paintings were unexpectedly discovered in 1994 by researcher Jean-Marie Chauvet.Stat of the Day: 600. The number of police officers posted along Fridays stage route, in response to the attack in Nice.Quote of the Day: Everyones thoughts are with those affected down in Nice and its difficult for us to be talking about the race. Overall leader Chris Froome.Dessert: Marron glace (candied chestnuts). The Ardeche department provides 50 percent of Frances chestnut production.Next order: Stage 14 on Saturday is a rolling but not overly challenging 208.5 (130-mile) leg following a northward route from Montelimar to Villars-les-Dombes Parc des Oiseaux in the Rhone-Alpes region.

AMSTERDAM -- Yannick Carrasco scored a late equalizer and teammate Romelu Lukaku squandered two good chances as Belgium came from behind to draw 1-1 with the Netherlands in the 126th Low Countries derby on Wednesday.Ajax captain Davy Klaassen had given the Netherlands the lead from the penalty spot in the 38th minute as the neighbors played a friendly to prepare for their World Cup qualifiers on Sunday.Belgium had been looking forward to the return from a string of injuries of captain Vincent Kompany, but the Manchester City defender pulled out of the starting lineup just before kickoff as a precaution.The Netherlands was missing an injury-prone captain of its own, but Arjen Robben is fit and expected to play Sunday for his first international in a year when the Dutch take on Luxembourg in Group A.It was unclear whether Kompany would be back for Sundays game against Estonia in Brussels. Belgium hasnt missed Kompany yet in its Group H qualifying campaign, scoring 13 goals and conceding none as it won its first three matches.But his absence was felt as the Netherlands had the best of a scrappy first half, with Vincent Janssen twice getting in behind the Belgium defense -- only to run into goalkeeper Simon Mignolet both times.The two collisions took their toll on the unproductive Spurs striker and he was substituted in the 25th minute, pointing to his head as he left the pitch.The Netherlands finally broke through when a long ball by Georginio Wijnaldum found Jereemain Lens. Nike Air Max Womens 2018 Yellow. Jan Vertonghen, playing at the Amsterdam Arena for the first time since leaving Ajax for Spurs in 2012, grabbed Lens shirt to bring him down.Klaassen hammered the resulting penalty high into the roof of the net.Belgium started without a classic deep center forward, instead playing with a mobile front three of Eden Hazard, Dries Mertens and Carrasco. Their speed and positional switches caused problems for the Dutch defense, but they did not carve out any clear-cut chances before the break.We were well organized and didnt give much away, Netherlands captain Wesley Sneijder said. But we didnt create much, either.Belgium coach Roberto Martinez replaced Mertens with Lukaku in the 63rd and the powerful striker twice came close to levelling the scores 15 minutes later, first seeing a shot deflected wide and seconds later miscuing an effort from close range when he should have scored.Instead it was Carrasco who finally made Belgiums pressure pay, with his shot deflecting off defender Joel Veltman and looping over Maarten Stekelenburg in the Dutch goal in the 82nd minute.As Belgium poured forward looking for the winner, Lukako squandered another close-range chance and Stekelenburg saved well from Hazard to ensure the scores stayed level.The team played a good match, Carrasco said. The second half we were going for goal.

(STATS) -- Its been almost three years since Jacksonville State lost an Ohio Valley Conference game. Cheap Paul Pierce Jersey . It only seems that long since the Gamecocks actually faced a league opponent.Champing at the bit to finally begin OVC play, Jacksonville State looks for an 18th consecutive league victory Saturday against visiting Tennessee Tech.Its kind of strange to be (this late into October) and playing your first conference game, JSU coach John Grass said.In somewhat of a scheduling quirk, the Gamecocks (3-1) opened with four straight nonconference games then had their bye last week.I dont think its a disadvantage to us, Grass said. We needed a break.Grass, 16-0 within the OVC, believes his squad actually improved during the off week -- at least from a practice standpoint.The good thing about this team is that we seem to get better each week, he said. We had some great practices last week and we got better. It wasnt just a week of going through the motions.That can only mean more trouble for the others in the conference, who again are expected to chase the two-time defending champion Gamecocks. Ranked third in the STATS FCS Top 25, the reigning national runner-up last dropped a league game Nov. 16, 2013, at Eastern Illinois. Theyve also won 24 straight regular-season contests against non-FBS competition.JSU prepped for the OVC slate by playing then-No. 21 LSU strong for a little more than a quarter before falling 34-13, and took down a pair of talented FCS squads in Coastal Carolina -- currently ranked 17th -- and Liberty in their last two contests.Paced by star quarterback Eli Jenkins, the Gamecocks average 29.8 points and rank seventh nationally totaling 491.8 yards per contest. Jenkins, 29-0 against non-FBS schools in the regular season, has thrown for 950 yards and rushed for a team-leading 415 while totaling nine touchdowns.Hes completed 65.5 percent of his passes, thrown three TDs and ran for two in three games versus Tennessee Tech.Junior defensive end Darius Jackson has 15 tackles -- 7 1/2 for loss -- and five sacks to lead a Gamecocks defense that ranks fifth in the FCS at 280.5 yards per game.That likely does not bode well for the Golden Eagles (2-3, 2-1), who have dropped four straight in the series and been outscored 125-30 in the last three against JSU.We have our hands full, Tennessee Tech coach Marcus Satterfield said. (Were) trying to teach our kids, dont really worry about (the Gamecocks). If we worry about them well drive ourselves crazy.We just have to figure out how to go down there and not turn the ball over. Keep it close and see if we can make it a game in the fourth quarter.Satterfield has reason to be concerned considering his team has allowed an average of 36 points despite beating Eastern Kentucky 33-30 in overtime last week. The Golden Eagles also rank near the bottom of the FCS at 2.7 yards per carry.Were not effective in handing the ball off and gaining a yard right now, Satterfield said.Tech does have a solid offensive threat in senior quarterback Michael Birdsong, who went 27 of 42 for 327 yards and threw three of his nine touchdown passes last weekend.If he wasnt in the game, we would have got beat by about five touchdowns, Satterfield said of the former James Madison and Marshall signal caller.
