New Jordans 2017 will be releasing an all-new Air Jordan 11 Low for Easter 2018. For this release, the low-top Air Jordan 11 will come dressed in a White, Emerald Rise and Black color scheme. The sneaker is basically covered with an emerald green iridescent patent leather to give off that Easter vibe, while white leather, black accents throughout and an iridescent translucent outsole completes the theme altogether.
New Jordans 2016, This colorway sports a white upper, but unlike traditional 11s this pair replaces the ballistic mesh with a white tumbled leather. Another notable detail of this pair is the iridescent treatment on the patent leather portion of the upper. Highlighted with an Emerald Green iridescent patent leather to give off that Easter vibe. Additional details includes a White upper, Black detailing atop an iridescent translucent outsole.
New Air Jordan Shoes, The Air Jordan 11 originally released in 1996 and is famous for its patent leather upper. The shoes were designed by Tinker Hatfield and Michael Jordan himself calls it his favorite Air Jordan sneaker. The crisp design of the AJ 11 stunned everyone, but lacked quality with the clear rubber soles easily yellowed and patent leather was deranged quickly. Nonetheless, the AJ 11 still remains a top sneaker adored by sneakerheads and sell out retro versions instantly.

The biggest appeal and criticism professional players had since Overwatchs closed beta was that teams were able to stack duplicate heroes onto the same team. Oscar Jersey . The no hero limit was what defined the Overwatch meta for seven months straight, bringing in the Double Orb composition which utilized two Zenyattas and Double Winstons. Other than that, it was standard for two Lucios to be run on King of the Hill maps and two Reinhardts on payload maps.With a lot more time put into weekly tournaments at Gosugamers, it became clear that certain rules had to be implemented when looking toward the longevity of the competitive scene. Hero diversity was incredibly low and the meta was stagnant.Eventually, Gosugamers listened to the criticisms of several professional players, who recommended that tournaments ban all two-capture point maps, implement the True Stopwatch rule, and follow the one hero limit. From that point on, the value of the new system shone but it also revealed potential problems that left people asking for a return to the former rule set. While there will always be dissenters, the one hero limit is the clear-cut choice for moving forward in the Overwatch scene.The early benefits of the wild, wild westFor several months, the competitive scene in Overwatch thrived without restrictions, bringing games of great entertainment value. When Gosugamers started the trend of limiting each competing team under the one hero limit, team composition diversity went down. Team comps on almost all maps became staple and solved. If you looked at certain choke points, the best defenders boiled down to having both a Symmetra and a Junkrat. Under the one hero limit, that became a very difficult fight to traverse.The solution to these types of compositions was to employ non-conventional strategies such as Double Winston. Using a Double Winston in this situation means that both tanks can jump over the long stretch or a wall of the choke-point and immediately single out both the Junkrat and Symmetra while dropping portable shields to run through with the payload.The reason there wasnt immediately a lot of innovation room under the one hero limit is because there simply arent enough heroes yet. With 22 characters, teams are only choosing around 28 percent of the pool. But with Mercy, Lucio, Reinhardt, and McCree being picked more than 70-80 percent of the time after the one hero limit was first introduced, there was little room to employ other creative hero solutions to existing comps.The biggest reason to keep the possibility open for stacking heroes lies in the strengths of certain heroes. Heroes like Tracer, Reinhardt, and Lucio are extremely potent in what their kit aims to do. But having two of them on the same team doesnt just double its effectiveness, it multiplies it. Double Lucio is mandatory on King of the Hill maps for stacking healing auras. Double Reinhardt means they can trade off shield uptime or provide a bigger cover for their double Widowmakers and Bastion.After a few weeks of the one hero limit being implemented, Tracer was being picked roughly 30-40 percent of the time. However, ESL joined the Overwatch scene and lifted the one hero limit format for their tournament. As a result, Tracer was used in pairs on both teams almost every single King of the Hill map.Almost inevitably, Tracer fell back down to a sub-25 percent usage rate when tournament formats returned to the one hero limit.Unique heroes are the futureThe one hero limit needs some working out for the future of the scene but there is a lot of evidence that points to this rule as the standard for all future Overwatch tournaments. Over the course of several weeks and hundreds of games, there is one undeniable truth about the one hero limit: it has raised hero diversity. Compositions are now not being forced to use two of the same heroes, specifically Lucio, McCree, and Reinhardt.There are a lot of map-specific heroes being picked now such as Junkrat and Symmetra. Dont get the wrong idea though, Symmetra is still a very unpopular hero but she has a very specific niche on very specific maps. Another surprising example was Zaryas sudden boost in popularity when playing on offense. Not being able to stack Winstons in a composition meant Zarya could be played, providing a shield for in-your-face offensive heroes like Reaper.While the theory that the one hero limit would kill a lot of the creativity of stacking comps, pros would soon realize the domino effect the limit would cause. When being forced to use a specific hero, another hero will rise in popularity to either counter it or to synergize with it. Zaryas popularity on offense brought out a resurgence of Pharah. Widowmaker and McCrees nerf helped bring out a resurgence of Soldier 76 and Roadhog.McCrees nerf also brought about a surprising combo used on some payload maps that utilized either Soldier 76 and Roadhog. This itself demonstrates a sort of self-solving problem when it comes to metas in competitive esports. This effect has long been demonstrated in League of Legends, where one champions rise or fall directly affects another champions popularity.Blizzard cant always justify a nerf to a hero just because two of them on the same composition can break the meta. It didnt do that before and it would cripple a hero individually when their only power imbalance is brought about with the no hero limit. McCree was used in pairs all the time, but even on his own he was the king of DPS (damage per second) with the hardest counter to Tracer and Pharah. This allows Blizzard to safely and healthily buff and nerf heroes without the risk of letting two to four of the same hero overtake the meta.Over the horizonWhile Gosugamers weekly tournaments in North America and Europe set the precedent for the one hero limit, Blizzard has since endorsed the rule in competitive play by implementing the same rules in-game for competitive mode. Its safe to assume BlizzCon will likely enforce this trend and show a ripple effect across the rest of the competitive plane.In the youth of the OW competitive scene, there were a lot of downsides to having the one hero limit. Gone are the days of seeing the D.Va spam defense, and the Crossfire Defense in Watchpoint: Gibraltar can only be executed in Free Play now. There is so much innovation to be explored under the one hero limit and the only thing holding it back is the lack of a bigger hero pool. Being able to stack heroes is fun and creative but its important to administer restrictions so the competitive scene doesnt spiral out of control. Luiz Gustavo Jersey . Rousey will put her perfect 8-0 record and hardware on the line against another undefeated fighter, 7-0 Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada on February 22nd. Elias Jersey . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. http://www.officialbrazilstore.com/world-cup-ganso-football-jersey/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.Arsenals new midfield signing Granit Xhaka has described his move to the Emirates as a dream come true.

Right-hander Andrew Cashner is going home for a spot in the Texas Rangers rotation. Grant Fuhr Jersey .A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Friday that the free agent pitcher and the team had reached an agreement on a $10 million, one-year deal. That person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was pending a physical and wasnt finalized, and the AL West champions had not made an official announcement.Cashner, a Texas native who was a first-round draft pick out of TCU in 2008, finished last season with the Miami Marlins after the San Diego Padres traded him July 29. He was 5-11 with a 5.25 ERA in 28 games last season.Texas had inquired about Cashner before the non-waiver trading deadline last summer, and had previously been interested in him.The 30-year-old Cashner will join a Rangers rotation thats led by aces Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish, and includes Martin Perez.After a standout career at TCU, about 20 miles from the Rangers ballpark, Cashner was drafted 19th overall by the Cubs in 2008. He made his major league debut two years later with 53 appearances for Chicago. The Cubs traded him to San Diego after the 2011 season, in the deal that sent first baseman Anthony Rizzo to Chicago, and Cashner eventually became a starter for the Padres.Cashner has a 31-53 record with a 3.89 ERA in 202 career games. He has started 103 of his last 104 games since making five relief appearances for San Diego the first month of the 2013 season.Texas earlier this month declined its $11 million option for left-handed starter Derek Holland, instead electing a $1.5 million buyout and making him a free agent. The 30-year-old Holland was part of Texas only two World Series teams in 2010 and 2011, but missed significant time because of injuries the past three seasons.Game notes The Rangers received RHP Tyler Wagner on waiver claim from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. Billy Butler Jersey . -- Charges were dismissed Friday against a former Tennessee high school basketball coach who was accused of failing to report child sexual abuse after a freshman player was assaulted by older teammates.Hamilton County Criminal Court Judge Don Poole ruled that the law Andre Montgomery of Ooltewah High School was accused of violating did not apply in this case. Montgomery was indicted in May on four counts of failing to report child sexual abuse.Poole said when a victim is 13-17 years old, the Tennessee statute that prosecutors relied on applies only to cases in which the attacker is a parent or someone else who lives in the same household as the victim.Now, that doesnt mean that there wouldnt be a moral requirement to report that. That doesnt mean there might not be a job or employment requirement to report that, Poole said. But does this statute create a legal requirement on this defendant or anyone else to report it? I think the answer is no.Melydia Clewell, a spokeswoman for the Hamilton County District Attorneys Office, said prosecutors would ask the Attorney Generals office to review the decision for potential appeal. Prosecutors have 30 days from the ruling to file an appeal.Judge Poole applied the law, said Curtis Bowe, Montgomerys lawyer. He read the law, understood it. If there are issues with the law, its in the hands of the Legislature to fix.The case stemmed from a Dec. 22 incident in a Gatlinburg cabin while Ooltewahs team was participating in a holiday tournament. Montgomery was Ooltewahs coach at the time.Police in Gatlinburg, which is in Sevier County, said a freshman required emergency surgery after being assaulted with a pool cue by teammates in an apparent hazing incident. Authorities in Hamilton County, where Ooltewah is located, said four freshman players were assaulted during the trip.One player was convicted in juvenile court of aggravated rape and aggravated assault in August. Two other players were convicted as juveniles only of aggravated assault.Poole described the assault as horrendous and horrific even as he cleared Montgomery on the charge of failing to report the situation to Hamilton County authorities. He added that it appears to me the statutes in question possibly are not properly worded and maybe dont come across as the Legislature intended.Hamilton County officials charged Montgomery, assistant coach Karl Williams and athletic director Allard Nayadley in January with failure to report child sexual abuse.Prosecutors dropped the charges against Williams in May. Nayadley entered a pre-trial diversion program in May with the agreement that the charges could be removed from his record if he complies with terms of that program, which include performing community service and taking a class on mandatory reporting.All three officials, as well as the Hamilton County Board of Education, have been sued by the victims family. The lawsuit says school officials knew Ooltewah athletes were being abused and did nothing about it. Catfish Hunter Jersey . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. Rollie Fingers Jersey . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. http://www.authenticmlbshopathletics.com/authentic-tony-phillips-athletics-jersey/ . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. BOSTON -- Rick Porcellos unbeaten home season ended because of a hanging second-inning slider.Mark Trumbo hit his major league-leading 42nd home run, Kevin Gausman narrowly outpitched Porcello over eight innings and the Baltimore Orioles pulled within a game of AL East-leading Boston with a 1-0 win over the Red Sox.Baltimore took two of three in the series, but as disappointed as he was, Porcello took solace in Bostons AL East lead.We lost and its a big game. Theres no satisfaction in that, Porcello said. This was big game for us. We were hoping to take the series from them, but that being said, weve still got a one-game lead and we get them for four at their place.The Orioles are headed back home and will host the Red Sox next week for four games that could push one team ahead to stay. Then again, the AL East looks like a four-horse race heading into the final weeks.Baltimore moved one game ahead of slumping Toronto for the top AL wild card after the Blue Jays lost at home to Tampa Bay 8-1 earlier Wednesday. And then there are the Yankees, hanging around four games back of Boston. New York begins a four-game series at Fenway Park on Thursday night.A lot of big baseball to be played and were still in a good position, Porcello said. Its going to be a lot of fun. This is what you train for. This is what you play for -- to play meaningful baseball in September and hopefully into October.Gausman (8-10) and Porcello (20-4) had nearly identical line scores over eight innings, each striking out six and allowing just four hits, except Porcello allowed Trumbos leadoff shot in the second inning.Porcello was 13-0 in home starts with one no decisiion entering the game. Stephen Vogt Jersey. We have to score something to help him out, said right fielder Mookie Betts, one of just four Boston players to get a hit. If we score one or two we can get a win but we didnt do that today. He did his job.GREAT GOUSMANThis was Gausmans fourth scoreless outing in his past five starts and matched the longest start of his career. He threw 120 pitches and lowered his ERA to 3.43.He was just throwing all his pitches for strikes and keeping us off balance, Betts said.OUCHBoston had a scare later in the second when J.J. Hardy hit a hard grounder up the middle and the ball bounced off Porcellos calf to third baseman Travis Shaw. Hardy ran out the single while Porcello limped around the mound. The game was delayed briefly to allow Porcello a few warm-ups before continuing.It got me in a good spot. If it got me in the shin it might have been a little bit tougher, Porcello said.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: RHP Steven Wright (right shoulder strain) is expected to start throwing next week in Fort Myers, Florida. Manager John Farrell said the knuckleballer will need to gradually regain some arm strength and his return during the regular season is uncertain. I dont want to rule it out, but at this point its going to become a little bit more challenging with each passing day, Farrell said.UP NEXTRed Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (2-7, 4.70) gets the start Thursday as Boston opens a four-game series against the New York Yankees. RHP Masahiro Tanaka (13-4, 3.04) is up in the visiting Yankees rotation.

ST. Ichiro Suzuki Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- If Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer needs some kind of spark to get out of the long, difficult slump that has been his 2016 season, perhaps the Minnesota Twins will do the trick.Archer is 5-15, leading the majors in losses, with just one win in his last 10 starts and his team 2-8 in those games. Baseball hasnt had a 20-game loser since Detroits Mike Maroth in 2003, and if Archer is to keep pitching and avoid such infamy, something has to change.For his career, Minnesota has been that kind of cure-all -- hes 4-1 all-time against the Twins, with a sterling 1.78 ERA in his five starts. He actually lost in his last outing against Minnesota, but struck out 12 in doing so nearly a year ago in August.And if the Rays, too, are to reverse their struggles, theyll need Archer to last longer than Fridays starter, Blake Snell, who got to 97 pitches in just 5 1/3 innings, putting a 2-1 lead in the hands of the Tampa Bay bullpen.It didnt go well, as relievers Erasmo Ramirez and Ryan Garton combined to give up five runs and six hits in their 3 2/3 innings, while the Twins bullpen calmly threw 2.2 innings of one-hit, scoreless relief.(Ramirez) has been throwing the ball pretty good for us, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. Today, you go back and look at those pitches and Im guessing they were probably hit where they were supposed to be hit, (given) the location.Those pitches included a two-run home run to Eddie Rosario and a solo shot from Miguel Sano. And just as the Twins have been good for Archer in the past, the Rays could benefit from facing a young, unproven arm in Minnesota starter Jose Berrios, who is carrying an 8.57 ERA with a 2-1 record.Berrios had good numbers at Triple-A Rochester, carrying a 2.71 ERA in 13 starts, and Saturday will be his second start since being recalled. He took the win in his last start, giving up three runs on five hits in six innings for a quality start, retiring 15 straight at one point.Minnesota kept the Rays from causing any real trouble in Fridays opening win, holding them to a 1-for-7 night with runners in scoring position. Starter Ervin Santana gave up three hits in the first five at-bats, then settled down to retired 10 straight and last into the seventh inning. Their bats, meanwhile, came through with four hits with runners in scoring position, allowing them to break open a game that was a pitchers duel entering the seventh inning.A nice overall win for us, manager Paul Molitor said. We had to keep fighting. We fought our way back in the game and the bullpen was solid. Andre Dawson Jersey . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. Custom Miami Marlins Jerseys . Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the 24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he ultimately lands on a move. http://www.authenticbaseshopmarlins.com/Jose-Fernandez-Jersey/ . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. (STATS) -- As FCS juggernaut North Dakota State continues to find a way to beat nearly every team and challenge that stands in its way, another national title probably seems like a foregone conclusion.But the challenge will get tougher. Theres great pressure when the feeling of a national title or bust is hanging in the air.In last weeks STATS national rankings, the top-ranked Bison have defeated nine of the next 11 teams since the start of the 2014 season, and the only reason Chattanooga and James Madison probably arent included on the Bison hit list is that they hadnt played them. The Bison are an absurd 74-5 since beginning their run of five straight national championship seasons in 2011.Tomorrow isnt promised. Remember that this time last year, nobody suspected a home loss would occur against South Dakota or that a potentially crippling injury like the one suffered by then-quarterback Carson Wentz would threaten the season as well. A lot can go wrong just as so much goes right.The Bison play in the strongest FCS conference -- the Missouri Valley -- and their rivals know how to play them better than Charleston Southern, Eastern Washington and Iowa. That may be overlooked after a murderers row of a nonconference schedule, but coach Chris Kliemans team faces a number of physical, tough games ahead.Northern Iowa woke up today believing it will beat the Bison next month. Western Illinois must think it has a shot. Illinois State, well, the Redbirds are two-time defending conference co-champs as well and are up next on Oct. 1.Over the long regular season, NDSU appears to be the best team again. But the FCS playoffs dont provide a second chance and the Bison can be beaten in a one-game situation. An opposing team just has to find the right day against the greatest dynasty in FCS history.---=SECOND AND 10=Ten more observations from the FCS weekend:1.) After having FCS co-games of the week, co-teams of the week make sense. What Stony Brook did to No. 2 Richmond -- posting a 42-14 win -- was even more surprising than No. 1 North Dakota States 23-21 upset at No. 13 Iowa. Offense has been at a premium at Stony Brook, but quarterback Joe Carbone, running back Stacey Bedell and wide receiver Ray Bolen provided excellent balance. NDSU was the more physical team than the Hawkeyes -- posting a 239-34 advantage in rushing yards -- to push its amazing FBS win streak to six.2.) With Richmonds loss, Sam Houston State appears poised to move up one spot to No. 2 following a 44-31 road victory over Lamar in the Southland Conference. But consider Jacksonville State, which was fourth last week, thrashed Sam Houston 62-10 in last years national semifinals. And Eastern Washington, which was too low at No. 8 last week, has wins over Washington State and Northern Iowa and only an overtime loss to North Dakota State. Clearly, the debate over No. 2 is strong.3.) Terrific decision by the Eastern Washington coaches in the Big Sky teams 34-30 win against No. 10 Northern Iowa. Sophomore Gage Gubrud was all-world in the Eagles first two games (60 of 80, 924 yards, nine touchdowns), but he simply didnt have it during the home opener and they went to Reilly Hennessey in the second half. The redshirt sophomore completed 21 of 29 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner on a fake field goal in the final minute.4.) Ivy League teams opened their season to a rousing 5-3 start. Dartmouth rallied to a 22-21 win over No. 22 New Hampshire, ending a streak of 13 straight losses and 20 games without a win (18 losses, two ties) against its intrastate rival. Harvard routed Rhode Island 51-21 and two of the three 2015 champs won, with Penn lacking defensive answers in a 49-28 loss to Lehigh. Giancarlo Stanton Jersey. Brown, Princeton and Cornell also earned victories.5.) Taking the Ivy League out of the equation, 14 teams are unbeaten through two or three games. Six of them -- Albany (CAA), East Tennessee State (Southern), Georgetown (Patriot), Missouri State (Missouri Valley), Tennessee State (Ohio Valley) and Wagner (Northeast) -- are coming off losing seasons.6.) Speaking of East Tennessee State, the Buccaneers averaged 7,128 at home games when they returned to football last year after a 12-year hiatus, so drawing a school-record 13,863 to Bristol Motor Speedway for the Western Carolina matchup was significant. Even better for the Bucs (2-0), they gained a 34-31 Southern Conference win. Coach Carl Torbush continued to watch the maturation of sophomore QB Austin Herink, who threw for three touchdowns.7.) An FCS team has scored at least 80 points in each of the first three full weeks of the season. James Madison beat Morehead State 80-7, Fordham ripped Division II Elizabeth City State 83-21 and UT Martin became the latest in destroying NAIA Bacone 84-6 even though the second half was shortened to two 10-minute quarters. Last year, the FCS season high was Southern Illinois 73 points against Missouri State.8.) Eight FCS teams have beaten FBS programs, but South Carolina State isnt one of them despite having three attempts this season. Coach Buddy Poughs MEAC power was shut out by UCF and Clemson and fell to Louisiana Tech by a combined 150-24. Everybody has dreams of an upset, but financially strapped athletic programs, especially those from the historically black schools, are usually only scheduling losses.9.) As good as Saturdays action was in the FCS, dont overlook that the week opened Thursday night with Arkansas-Pine Bluff stunning Alcorn State 45-43 in two overtimes. UAPB went 2-9 overall and 1-8 in the SWAC last season and was coming off a loss to Division II Panhandle State, but two-time defending conference champ Alcorn State got caught overlooking the Golden Lions. The Braves surrendered less than 92 passing yards per game last year, yet Brandon Duncan riddled them for an FCS-season high 505 yards as well as four touchdowns. In the second OT, he had a game-tying 25-yard TD to Willie Young and then connected with John Hawkins for a winning two-point conversion.10.) The ultimate weapon in the FCS might be one of the smallest. Southern fifth-year senior Willie Quinn was at it again in a 64-6 trouncing of Alabama State, totaling 290 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns, including a 73-yard punt return which gave him 10 TD returns in his career. Oh yes, the 5-foot-5 dynamo, the FCS leader in all-purpose yards, also threw a 30-yard touchdown.---=A LOOK AHEAD=Conference games begin to dominate the FCS schedule next weekend, although only four of the 10 teams in Missouri Valley Conference are in action.The Big Sky schedule gets rolling with marquee games: Eastern Washington at Northern Arizona, Montana at Cal Poly and Portland State at defending champion Southern Utah.Dayton visits San Diego in a matchup of the last years Pioneer Football League co-champs, while Alcorn State faces a must-win at Grambling State in a rematch of the 2015 SWAC Championship Game. Also, Samford is at Chattanooga in a key Southern Conference game and Harvard puts a 15-game road winning streak on the line at Ivy League rival Brown.The nonconference headliners are Jacksonville State at Liberty and Colgate at Richmond. Also, as FCS-FBS matchups continue to dwindle, Western Illinois heads to Northern Illinois and Central Arkansas visits Arkansas State.

CHANDLER, Okla. Alex Rodriguez Jersey . -- James Jimbo Elrod, an All-American defensive end who played on Oklahomas 1974 and 1975 national championship teams, died in a car wreck Monday, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said. He was 62.The single-vehicle crash happened at about 3:45 a.m. on Interstate 44 near Chandler, about 60 miles southwest of Tulsa. The patrol said Elrod was killed after his 2015 Lexus struck a guardrail, ejecting him through the vehicles sun roof. A preliminary report says Elrod was not wearing a seatbelt and that a passenger was taken to an Oklahoma City hospital in serious condition. According to the school, the passenger was his wife, Diana.This is a very sad day for the OU football family, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. Jimbo was an All-American player and person, a great friend of our program who loved his Sooners. He was a true joy to be around, and we will miss him dearly. We wish Diana the absolute best in her recovery and are praying for Jimbos entire family on this extremely difficult day.Elrod was also a member of Oklahomas 1974 national champion wrestling team.Great wrestler and a great football player, said Barry Switzer, who coached those championship football teams. Wrestling is what made Jimbo such a great football player. It gave him great upper-body strength and quickness. He could really run. He was a tenacious player and a competitor. He was really good and he was a member of a great group at Oklahoma.Elrod played three years in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs and one with the Houston Oilers.In his younger days, he left quite an impression when he walked into the room.Jimbo has always been an 18-year-old guy to me because thats what he was when I signed him, Switzer said. He always had movie-star looks and a lot of hair. I was always jealous of his hair. Everybody was.Its the second fatal crash this year in Oklahoma involving a football standout.

Let us know which side youre on for UFC 167 use the hashtag #TeamLynch or #TeamJC on Twitter.ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Detroit slugger Miguel Cabreras 10th inning at-bat against Tampa Bay closer Fernando Rodney overshadowed the Rays comeback victory. Yunel Escobar had an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Rays rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Tigers on Saturday night. But most of the attention after the game centred on Cabrera yelling at the Tampa Bay dugout after he struck out against Rodney. The Rays right-hander threw an in-tight and up pitch to back Cabrera off the plate during the at-bat. "I dont know what hes saying," Rodney said. "Im trying to do my job. You have to pitch inside sometimes. You have to pitch inside, outside, everywhere. You dont want to hit nobody because the game is on the line. "Thats what I got on my mind, try to move (him) a little bit because the guy is a dangerous hitter." Cabrera declined to comment about the confrontation, but Tigers manager Jim Leyland talked about it in a strong way. "I dont care about throwing inside, but I dont like it up there, and we will not tolerate that," Leyland said. "Im not accusing anybody of anything but we wont tolerate that. If youre going to just rare back and throw it, you cant throw it there. Thatll cause a lot of problems for people. Thats not a good idea. Thats not acceptable. "We lost a tough game. They earned the win, they got the win, and OK, more power to them, but throwing in that area is not acceptable, and somebody pays the price for that throughout baseball. Thats just the way baseball is. Thats not free. Theres no free lunch. That wont be tolerated. You can take that to the bank" Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said he had no idea why Cabrera was upset. "Youd have to ask him why," Maddon said. "I was kind of surprised, actually." Rodney (3-2) threw two scoreless innings for the win Cabrera went 1 for 4 with a walk, but his major league-leading batting average dropped two points to .375. He has a 14-game hitting streak. James Loney had a one-out single in the 10th off Bruce Rondon (0-1). Pinch-runner Sam Fuld went to second on Wil Myers single, and after Luke Scott struck out, both runners advaanced on a wild pitch. Kevin Long Jersey. Escobar won it for the Rays with a line drive that sailed over the head of centre fielder Austin Jackson. "Im very happy that I was able to help the team win," Escobar said through an interpreter. Scott tied it at 3 on a solo homer with one out in the eighth off Tigers starter Justin Verlander, who allowed three runs, nine hits and four walks during a season-high eight innings. Verlander is winless in his last four starts. "This is the game weve talked about that we have to start winning, and we won it tonight against a really good team," Maddon said. Rays slugger Evan Longoria was out of the starting lineup for the first time this season due to a sore right foot. The third baseman, who left Friday nights game, is also expected to sit out on Sunday against the Tigers. Jackson hit an opposite-field solo homer to right, and Jhonny Peralta had a two-run single off Chris Archer that put the Tigers ahead 3-0 in the third. Archer gave up three runs, five hits, three walks and had three strikeouts in five innings. Loney had an RBI single during the fifth to get the Rays within 3-2. Verlander avoided further damage by getting a double-play grounder from rookie Myers with two on and one out. Loney grounded into a double play with runners on the corners and one out in the seventh. Myers flied out with two runners on to end the first. Tampa Bays Desmond Jennings tripled and scored on Ben Zobrists grounder in the third. Jennings, playing in centre, was charged with an error in the eighth, which snapped a streak of 262 games in the outfield without a miscue. NOTES: Detroit RHP Anibal Sanchez (right shoulder strain) will pitch Monday in Florida for either Class A Lakeland or the rookie level Gulf Coast League Tigers. ... Loney extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single in the first. ... The Rays recalled INF Ryan Roberts from Triple-A Durham and optioned RHP Alex Colome to the International League club. ... Home plate umpire Dan Iassogna remained in the game after he appeared to get hit near the right wrist by a pitch from Rodney in the ninth that partially deflected off C Jose Molinas glove.

NEW YORK -- Western Michigan quarterback Zach Terrell is the winner of the William V. Davante Adams Jersey . Campbell Trophy, which goes to college footballs top scholar-athlete.Terrell was presented with the so-called academic Heisman on Tuesday night at the National Football Foundations Hall of Fame banquet. He was one of 12 finalists from all levels of college football. Each finalist receives an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship. Terrell receives an additional $7,000 in scholarship money.A three-year captain, Terrell is currently working an MBA after graduating in 3 1/2 years from Western Michigan.This season he has thrown for 3,376 yards and 32 touchdowns while leading the 12th-ranked Broncos (13-0) to the best season in school history and a bid to the Cotton Bowl to face No. 8 Wisconsin.---The other finalists were:-Taysom Hill, quarterback BYU-Chris Beaschler, linebacker, Dayton-Tim Crawley, wide receiver, San Jose State-DeVon Edwards, safety, Duke-Brooks Ellis, linebacker, Arkansas-Carter Hanson, linebacker, Saint Johns (Minn.)-Ryan Janvion, safety, Wake Forest-Zay Jones, wide receiver, East Carolina-Cooper Rush, quarterback, Central Michigan-Karter Schult, defensive lineman, Northern Iowa-Tyler Sullivan, quarterback, Delta State Jason Spriggs Jersey . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. David Bakhtiari Jersey . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. http://www.authenticfootballshoppackers.com/Black-Friday-Martellus-Bennett-Jersey/ .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. IndyCar fans have grown accustomed to a six- or seven-month offseason with little or no activity until Dale Coyne Racing announces its drivers a week or two before the first race of the new year.Not this time around. Since Simon Pagenaud wrapped up the 2016 IndyCar Series title at Sonoma Raceway on Sept. 18, he gained a new teammate at Penske Racing in the form of Josef Newgarden, Chip Ganassi Racing revealed it will switch camps from Chevrolet to Honda, with Tony Kanaan retained to remain in Ganassis No. 10 car for another season.Meanwhile, Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi decided to remain in IndyCars rather than jump back to Formula One, and A.J. Foyt Racing has all but confirmed that it will jump from Honda to Chevy.Heck, last-minute master Coyne even tabbed one of his future drivers months in advance, with former IndyCar champion Sebastien Bourdais set to rejoin. And lets not forget about the successful run James Hinchcliffe is having with partner Sharna Burgess on Dancing With The Stars ...The new IndyCar season doesnt start until March 12, but theres plenty to digest between now and then. Hes a breakdown of what we know so far:Newgarden to Penske: Barely a week into his Penske career, the 25-year-old has already tested for his new team at Road America and Gateway International Raceway, and hes settling in nicely. Some folks worry that having the IndyCar Series brightest young star join the sports most successful team is another case of the rich getting richer. But it took the highly rated Pagenaud a full year to become comfortable and take full advantage of the resources at his disposal, rewarding the patience of Roger Penske and team manager Tim Cindric.I talked to him [Newgarden], and he was pretty happy with the car over at St. Louis, Penske told ESPN.com. All in all its going pretty good.Penske rarely selects youth over experience, but with five full-time seasons already under his belt, Newgarden arrives at Penske as a young-but-seasoned veteran.I dont know if were trending younger, but hes a good guy and its great to have him on our team, Penske said. Overall its going to be a real strong team again next year.Ganassi to Honda: Roger Penske is a shareholder in Ilmor Engineering and the man who single-handedly brought Chevrolet back into Indy car racing. Chevrolet provides equal equipment to all of its teams, but even with all of Chip Ganassi Racings success (including 11 championships under CART or IndyCar sanction since 1996), any team is automatically going to be No. 2 in the Chevy pecking order behind Penske.CGR started the current chassis/and engine formula as a Honda team in 2012, winning a title with Scott Dixon in 2013, but switched to Chevrolet in 2014. Dixon stole another championship in 2015, but Chevrolets 2016 season was thoroughly dominated by Penske, with Penske taking 10 wins to Ganassis two.Even so, its somewhat shocking that Ganassi would switch back to Honda, given how poorly the Honda aero kit has fared over the last two years. But thats precisely the reason Honda needs Ganassi so badly, and with aero kit development frozen for 2017 until standardized boody parts are rolled out a year later, Honda has the budget to recruit the top-line team and drivers that it badly needs. Kevin King Jersey. The feeling exists that Andretti Autosport and the other Honda teams have underperformed over the last couple of years; having Ganassi back in the fold could validate that theory very quickly and should bring competitive balance between manufacturers back to the series.In a behind-the scenes switch, former Ganassi engineer Eric Bretzman has joined the Andretti team in a technical director role.With Honda picking up Ganassis four cars, an existing team will probably switch to Chevrolet, with the Foyt team the most likely. Team boss Larry Foyt all but verified the move, putting Honda favorite Takuma Satos future with the team in jeopardy.None of us are happy, Larry Foyt told Indycar.com. A.J.s not happy, Im not happy, the crews arent happy, the drivers arent happy and certainly [sponsor] ABC Supply is not happy. We know we can do a lot better than this.There will be some changes coming and no doubt well be headed a different direction next year.Kanaan, Rossi return: Once the Honda news broke, Kanaan, a favorite of fans and sponsor NTT Data, was quickly confirmed to return to Ganassis No. 10 car. He was immediately whisked off to St. Louis at short notice for Ganassis first Honda test at Gateway, nearly having to cancel a long-planned appearance with the Boys and Girls Club of Wayne County (Indiana) until Dixon stepped in to help charter a private plane for his teammate.Kanaan, the most experienced driver in the field, will be 42 when he embarks on his 20th season in Indy cars. Hes always a factor at Indianapolis, where the Honda aero package was particularly strong in 2016, making him an early favorite for next years 500.Meanwhile, with no competitive seats open in Formula One, last years surprise Indy winner Rossi has opted to return to IndyCars. Hell continue to drive the No. 98 Honda for Bryan Herta Autosport in association with Andretti Autosport. Drivers for the fourth cars run by Ganassi and Andretti have not yet been determined.Bourdais back to Coyne: Sebastien Bourdais ran with Dale Coyne Racing on a part-time basis when he returned to IndyCars in 2011 after a few years away racing F1 and sports cars. After three years with KV Racing, which produced four wins, Bourdais returns to a Coyne team that continues to get more competitive every year. Justin Wilson, Mike Conway and Carlos Huerta all won races for DCR, and four-time Champ Car series champion Bourdais could put together the teams most serious championship challenge since Wilson finished sixth in the 2013 IndyCar Series standings.Joining Bourdais will be Craig Hampson, his race engineer during his successful run at Newman-Haas Racing from 2003-07, along with Olivier Boisson, his more recent engineer at KV.Back in 2011, Dale was the one who gave me the opportunity to come back to IndyCar, and Im looking forward to a very exciting second stint with his team, stated Bourdais.

The 17-year old opener struck a match-winning 105 against Ireland Women to wrap up a 67-run victory in Malahide.Wolvaardts innings began with consecutive fours against Lewis in the fourth over. She had nine boundaries by the time she raised her fifty - off only 51 balls. Her 13th hit to the fence took her to 99 in the 37th over and a couple the next time she got on strike gave her a maiden ODI century.

CHARLOTTE, N. Cody Allen Jersey .C. -- When Luke Kuechly was carted off the field with a concussion, the tears streaming down his face as he left, it appeared the Carolina Panthers might be ready for another collapse.Their defensive leader was gone and another big fourth-quarter lead was crumbling.Instead, the Panthers did just enough to hold on and beat the New Orleans Saints 23-20 on Thursday night in a game marred by injuries to key players.When Kuechly went down the lead was at 10, and players gathered around him as he was put on a cart near midfield. Carolina would give up another score, but hold on for itsr third win in four games.We rally behind that guy, defensive end Charles Johnson said about Kuechly. Hes our leader. When you see a leader go down like that, we just rally behind him. Im keeping Luke in my prayers.The Panthers, who surrendered a 17-point lead and lost to the Kansas City Chiefs last week, entered the fourth quarter with a 23-3 lead before injuries began to take their toll. Along with Kuechly, the Panthers lost two-time All-Pro center Ryan Kalil (shoulder), top pass rusher Mario Addison (foot) and cornerback Leonard Johnson (chest) to injuries. The Saints lost running back Mark Ingram to a head injury in the third quarter.It was the Grim Reaper walking around out there, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said.Saints quarterback Drew Brees seemed to seize the momentum.Brees, who had been held to 171 yards and no touchdowns in the first three quarters, rallied the Saints back to 23-20 with touchdown passes to Brandon Coleman and Coby Fleener.But an 18-yard reception by Kelvin Benjamin on a third-and-10 with 2:39 left in the game proved pivotal, taking enough time off the clock where Brees only had 14 seconds to work with on his final drive. He couldnt manage to get his team into field goal range.Newton finished 14 of 33 for 192 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown pass to Ted Ginn Jr. as the Panthers (4-6) pulled even with the Saints for third place in the NFC South.Our mantra is to Keep Pounding and it speaks volumes in situations like this, Newton said. I will take an ugly win over a pretty loss.Jonathan Stewart also ran for a touchdown and Graham Gano had three field goals.Carolinas next two games are on the West Coast -- at Oakland and Seattle.Hopefully, the time off will give us enough time to heal up for this long road trip, safety Kurt Coleman said. And also you wonder if it wasnt a Thursday game and it was a Sunday game, would there be these type of injuries? You never know. ... Im just going to pray for everybody. Not only our team but their team.BETTER DEFENSEBrees finished with 285 yards passing.That was a dramatic difference from the last time the two teams met on Oct. 16 when Brees threw for 465 yards and four touchdowns in a 41-38 win over the Panthers.They did exactly what we hoped and that was keep the ball it in front of them, Rivera said of his young secondary. You cant ask for the guys to do a better job.KICKING WOESSaints coach Sean Payton was upset after the game about the teams continuing struggles on special teams, including a blocked field goal that was returned 73 yards by Kuechly before the half to set up Ginns touchdown catch.Last week the Saints lost to Denver when a potential game-tying extra point was blocked and returned for a 2-point defensive conversion.Fundamentally weve got to be able to kick an extra point. ... Weve got to be able to, you know, kick a field goal thats a makeable one, Payton said. Weve just struggled in that area. It cost us at New York, it cost us last weekend (against) Denver and it cost us again tonight. And weve got to be smart enough in the game early to understand that the turnovers arent good.LOSE SOME, WIN SOMEMaybe Ginn is just too fast for officials.In the first quarter Ginn appeared to score on a 14-yard run, but officials reviewed the play and ruled his knee was down at the 1-yard line taking away a touchdown. Then, in the closing seconds of the second quarter, officials ruled Ginn was out of bounds on a pass from Cam Newton. But after instant replay officials overturned the ruling and gave Ginn a 40-yard touchdown catch.UNDER PRESSURENewton was under heavy pressure for most of the first half, taking a sack on third down that took his team out of field goal range -- the second time he has done that in as many weeks.A COOL BREESBrees eclipsed 3,000 yards passing for the 13th consecutive season, tying Peyton Manning for the second-longest streak in NFL history.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Jose Ramirez Jersey .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. NASSAU, Bahamas -- Derek Jeter needed something to fill his competitive void when he retired from baseball. The former?New York Yankees?shortstop chose golf, and just like everyone else, its been a challenge for him to master.Its frustrating, Jeter said Wednesday, after playing the pro-am with Rickie Fowler at the Hero World Challenge. Its probably the most frustrating thing Ive done, because the balls not moving, man. You should be able to hit it. I can hit it. It just doesnt go where I want it to go.So yeah, I guess Im addicted to improve. Thats the best way to put it.Jeter has had a busy week in the Bahamas, playing nine holes with Tiger Woods on Monday, going to a players dinner on Tuesday night at the home of Justin Rose?and then competing in the pro-am on Wednesday.Jeter never played golf in his 20 years with the Yankees, during which he compiled 3,465 hits. He said he had a charity golf tournament but would only hit one tee shot with each group or hit a few putts.Now that hes retired, he cant get enough. Jeter started playing only two years ago and already is ddown to a 10 handicap. Austin Jackson Jersey. Youre always playing rounds of golf, and everybody always tells you how good you are? Yeah, Jeter said. Come see these guys and really see how good players play.Woods said he could tell how much Jeter was into golf by the technical questions he was asking Monday when they were joined by Rose and Jeters former teammate Tino Martinez.Even though he has been hooked on golf for the past two years and has known Woods for nearly 20 years, Monday was the first time Jeter played with Woods.I could have played with him earlier, but why embarrass myself? Jeter said. Ive embarrassed myself a lot in my career, but never intentionally.The Yankees great wasnt buying into any baseball comparisons. He was asked if the difference between hitting a big tee shot and hitting a home run.Nobodys watching out here, he said.So its like hitting one out during batting practice?In between, he said. A spring training home run, maybe.
