NASHVILLE -- Chris Johnson is often asked how many yards he thinks he can rush for any season, and the player nicknamed CJ2K always responds with the same answer: 2,000. Joaquin Benoit Jersey . But Johnson said he is rarely asked about his team goals and gets tabbed as a selfish player for mentioning his personal goal. Still, he believes he can run for 2,000 yards again and help the Titans make the playoffs. His ultimate goal is helping Tennessee win a Super Bowl. "Every year I want to rush for 2,00 yards, and I feel like if we are doing what is right and we making plays on Sunday and if I get to that yardage, I feel like we can be a playoff team and hopefully win the Super Bowl," Johnson said. Johnson said he knows people need something to talk about, but hes surprised how much attention he gets every time he mentions his annual goal to become the first man to run for 2,000 yards in a season twice. But he said hes not going to talk about team goals when asked specifically about his personal plans. Those team goals are why the running back entering his sixth NFL season has been a regular in the Titans off-season program this year, getting to know all the new players Tennessee brought in to help this franchise rebound from a 6-10 season. Its been three seasons since Johnson ran for 2,006 yards and became the sixth man in NFL history to reach that mark. Its been even longer since the Titans last made the playoffs. "Oh, its been forever," Johnson said. "It seems like Ive never even been to the playoffs. So its a situation that I really want to get back there." The Titans want Johnson to have a big year too because that likely means they have done just that too. "Theres no doubt he needs to have a big year," Titans coach Mike Munchak said. "Were planning on him having a big year because obviously that means things are going well for us." The three-time Pro Bowl running back seems very happy with the changes both in the offence and the help the Titans got him this off-season. Munchak officially named Dowell Loggains as the offensive co-ordinator, and Johnson sees evidence in the playbook of turning back to a run-heavy offence after a heavy focus on passing the past two seasons under former co-ordinator Chris Palmer. The Titans also revamped the interior of the offensive line with their first free agent signee in left guard Andy Levitre and their first draft selection in right guard Chance Warmack. They signed veteran Shonn Greene to offer up the change of pace back this team hasnt had since LenDale White in 2008 and 2009. Johnson pointed out White scored plenty of touchdowns in 2008, and that was the year Tennesssee went 13-3. Johnson said hes also able to share with Loggains what plays hes most comfortable with, and he appreciates new running backs coach Sylvester Crooms ability to have more input into the offence with both Munchak and Loggains. Greene ran for 1,000 yards in each of the past two seasons with the Jets, and hes 26 pounds heavier than Johnson. He said Thursday that hes not worried at all about how much playing time hell get this season. He also thinks targeting 2,000 yards rushing is a good goal for Johnson to have. "I think hes capable of doing it, and I think everyone in this team is going to strive to help him get that done," Greene said. The Titans do want more from Johnson. Hes been working on catching passes to help the Titans move him around more while getting him out away the line of scrimmage with room to run. Johnson caught 50 passes for 503 yards in 2009, and he caught a career-best 57 receptions in 2011. But he had only 36 for 232 yards last season. Munchak said Johnson also is a key part of their pass protection despite his size at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds. The running back knows where to be and how to buy that extra time for the quarterback. "Can we win week in, week out without him putting up numbers and doing well?" Munchak said. "Probably not." Johnson also knows criticism comes with playing running back in the NFL. "If I dont rush for 1,000 yards, then I lost a step. Im not the same guy," Johnson said. "But when I want to run for 2,000 yards, Im being selfish. Just got to take it." Notes: The Titans wrap up their organized team activities this week and hold a three-day minicamp next week to conclude their off-season. Munchak said some players like Levitre and RT David Stewart may be limited to individual drills. Munchak said the goal is to have players with any injuries healed up and ready for training camp. Bryce Harper Jersey .

BRISTOL, Conn. Wei-Yin Chen Jersey . -- During his visit Tuesday to ESPNs campus, Alabama coach Nick Saban happened to see Las Vegas odds that again had his Crimson Tide the favorite to win the national title.But Saban said he disagreed with the sportsbooks. He said the favorite should be Clemson, which pushed the Tide in the January championship game. The primary reason: The Tigers return Deshaun Watson.Saban called the junior quarterback the best player in college football since Cam Newton, who won the Heisman Trophy and a national title at Auburn in 2010.Watson accounted for 5,214 total yards and 47 touchdowns a season ago, finishing third in the Heisman race behind Alabama running back?Derrick Henry?and Stanford running?back Christian McCaffrey.Watson and McCaffrey, along with LSU running back Leonard Fournette, are the early favorites for the Heisman award in 2016.Meanwhile, at this point, Saban isnt sure who his quarterback will be in the fall. It will be the third consecutive season that Alabama will have a new starting quarterback.It will be Watsons third year as the starter for Clemson.I dont care who we start at quarterback, Saban said. He aint going to be that good.Saban said he entered the title game thinking that Watson was a skilled runner with a powerful arm. But his accuracy impressed the veteran coach.He could get the ball into spaces about like this, Saban said, holding his hands about a foot apart. He added that he didnt see any real holes in Watsons game.During the thrilling 45-40 Alabama win in the championship game, Watson threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns against the Tide, and he added another 73 rushing yards.Watson, who is set to graduate in December, has indicated he will turn pro after this season. Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. has Watson at No. 4 on his Big Board and the No. 1 quarterback. Womens Marlins Jerseys . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time.

LAS VEGAS --?Daniel Cormier will remain on Saturdays UFC 200 card and fight former middleweight champion Anderson Silva in a three-round, nontitle light heavyweight fight.UFC president Dana White confirmed the news to ESPN on Thursday evening. Cormier, the light heavyweight champion, was originally scheduled to fight Jon Jones at UFC 200, but that fight fell through Wednesday, when Jones was informed of a potential anti-doping violation.Silva, 41, has fought three times at 205 pounds, defeating James Irvin in July 2008, Forrest Griffin in August 2009 and Stephan Bonnar in October 2012, all by first-round knockout.Asked if the Cormier-Silva matchup makes up for the loss of Jones, White said he believes it does.I think its an interesting, fun fight, White said at a postfight news conference for Thursdays UFC Fight Night. Anderson Silva is undefeated at 205, and not just undefeated, but devastatingly undefeated. Every time hes moved up to 205, hes looked better than he did at 185.The new booking comes just one day before official weigh-ins for UFC 200. The fight will be three rounds, White said, because Silva is fighting on two days notice.Anderson is giving Daniel the opportunity to fight, to make money and to perform on UFC 200, White said. So if Anderson wants three rounds, if Anderson wants two rounds, hell get it.Silva does require final medical clearance by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, but UFC expects Silva to be cleared.Silva (33-7) hasnt fought since he suffered a decision loss to Michael Bisping inn February. Jose Fernandez Jersey. He was scheduled to fight Uriah Hall at UFC 198 in May but was forced to pull out the week of the fight when he experienced abdominal pain. He was taken to a hospital and underwent surgery to remove his gall bladder later in the week.Although that was less than two months ago, Silva said his desire to help UFC in a time of need prompted him to ask for the fight.I havent trained in a few months, but I think Im in good condition to go in there and put on a good fight, a smiling Silva said through a translator.Silva is winless since the Bonnar fight. He defeated Nick Diaz at UFC 183 in January 2015, but that result was overturned when Silva failed multiple drug tests for steroids. Arguably the greatest fighter of all time, Silva holds the UFC record for consecutive title defenses with 10.According to White, three options were considered to fight Cormier: Silva, Gegard Mousasi and Dan Henderson. Mousasi is already scheduled to fight on the card, and White said the promotion has other plans for Henderson.Additionally, a female bantamweight title fight between Miesha Tate and Amanda Nunes has been elevated to the UFC 200 main event. White told ESPN that, after further consideration, the promotion thought Tate deserved the headlining role. A heavyweight fight between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt will serve as co-headliner.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Cheap Authentic Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys From China ' ' '

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles have veered in different directions after starting the season with three straight wins. Asics Gel Lyte v For Sale .Employing a first-year coach and a rookie quarterback, Philadelphia couldnt sustain its early success.Carson Wentz threw five touchdown passes and no interceptions in helping the Eagles open with victories over Cleveland, Chicago and Pittsburgh.He has since been picked off 12 times, with only eight TD passes. Thats just one reason why Philadelphia (5-8) has lost six of seven, including four in a row.Self-inflicted wounds and self-inflicted penalties have (prevented) us from maybe winning a few more games, coach Doug Pederson said.The Ravens followed their 3-0 start with four straight defeats, but have rebounded to remain in the thick of the playoff chase. Baltimore (7-6) will win the AFC North if it defeats Philadelphia on Sunday, Pittsburgh on Christmas Day and Cincinnati in the finale.The Steelers game doesnt happen unless we win this game, Ravens safety Eric Weddle said. The Steelers game is on the backburner right now. Its all about Philly.Baltimore is on the rebound after losing at New England 30-23 on Monday night. The Ravens fell into a 23-3 hole before getting back into the game by taking advantage of two turnovers by the Patriots, but the overall performance of the team was disappointing following three wins in four weeks.Obviously, we werent good enough to beat the Patriots, Weddle said. Thats really what the reality comes down to, but that doesnt mean that our ultimate goal to win the division and get in the playoffs isnt attainable.Some things to know about the first meeting between Baltimore and Philadelphia since 2012:FIRING AWAY: Wentz is 74 passes away from breaking Donovan McNabbs team record for attempts in one season.Despite Pedersons desire to call a balanced game, he has relied more on the pass. Wentz has thrown 44.7 passes per game over the last seven after averaging 30.8 in the first six.I think its putting him in a tough situation, Pederson said. I would love to be able to manage it and lean on that offensive line more with the run game. Obviously, were going against a tough run defense this week, and yet we still have to be patient with that to help our quarterback.NEED TO RUN: Like the Eagles, the Ravens have all but abandoned the run recently.Joe Flacco threw 52 passes against the Patriots, while the running game generated only 42 yards on 14 attempts.There is no doubt we are going to have to run the ball, Flacco said. We have to be able to hand the ball off and get yardage out of it because then it is going to get the play-action game going a little bit more and make it that much better.Baltimore owns the 28th-ranked rushing attack. Terrance West has the teams lone 100-yard game, against Oakland in Week 4.NO SACK ATTACK: The Eagles have only eight sacks in the last seven games after getting 20 in the first six games.Philadelphia has proven pass rushers with big contracts putting no pressure on quarterbacks. Fletcher Cox leads the way with 5 1/2 sacks, but he went eight straight games without one. Brandon Graham has two in the last 10 games and Vinny Curry has 1 1/2.Youve got to be careful with judging it only on sacks, but sacks do affect the game, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. Not only do you stop drives and get them for lost-yardage plays, but there is a high incidence of quarterbacks either getting tipped balls or throwing when theyre getting hit and youre getting interceptions or fumbles. Those are the plays that weve been missing.SMITH NEEDED: The Ravens could be without standout cornerback Jimmy Smith, who sprained an ankle against the Patriots.With Smith out, Tom Brady torched Baltimore for 406 yards and three touchdowns.Were not worried about who is going to play or who is not going to play, Weddle insisted. Well play with the guys we have out there.If Smith cant go, that will put additional pressure on rookie cornerback Tavon Young, who knocked away two passes and had four solo tackles against New England.Its really important that Tavon is focused and ready to go, coach John Harbaugh said.HAPPY RETURNS: Michael Campanaro will likely return kicks for the Ravens, who cut veteran Devin Hester on Tuesday.Activated from the practice squad Wednesday, Campanaro has five career punt returns for an average of 13.2 yards and is averaging 26.3 yards on three career kickoff returns.Lardarius Webb is also an option for returning punts, though hes the starting safety.---AP Sports Writer Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia contributed.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Buy Onitsuka Tiger . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. Onitsuka Tiger Online .In my heart and mind Im competing for India, luge competitor Shiva Keshavan told The Associated Press in an email interview.

MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Dakota Bruggeman threw two touchdowns as Division II Alderson-Broaddus beat Robert Morris 14-7 in a season opener on Thursday night.Bruggeman was 12 of 24 for 129 yards passing for the Battlers. Scoring throws went to Edwin Velasquez and Brandon Jones, who also had 116 yards rushing. Amaan Bridgett ran for 60 yards.Dante Satcher scored on a 99-yard return of the opening kickoff to give the Colonials an early 7-0 lead.Bruggeman threw a 12-yard touchdown to Velasquez to even the score with 6:34 to goo in the first quarter. Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8 Mens. The Battlers Brooks Arthur intercepted a Luke Brumbaugh pass and three plays later Bruggeman connected with Jones from 17 yards to make it 14-7 with seven seconds left in the quarter.Neither team scored in the remaining three quarters.Freshman Andrew Romanchak played most of the game for Robert Morris and finished with 121 yards passing and one interception. Cheap Authentic Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys From China ' ' '

Carmelo Anthony plans to organize a meeting with community leaders, athletes and politicians that will take place Monday in Los Angeles to discuss issues surrounding the recent shootings by and against police officers across the country. Nike Shox r4 Mens .Anthony said he plans to keep the meeting closed to the media so that those involved feel comfortable speaking honestly.You have to keep the conversation going and dialogue going, Anthony said Thursday at a Team USA workout in Las Vegas.?If you dont, then you just become another tragedy that happens that everybody forgot about.Earlier this month, Anthony called on athletes to use their platforms to speak out on social issues in the wake of the shooting deaths of two African-American men and five Dallas police officers. He also addressed the issue with close friends LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul in a speech at the ESPYS.We want to get youth. We want to get kids. We want to get adults. We want to get officers. We want to get teachers, Anthony said. We want to get community leaders, athletes, everybody, having this conversation and talking on both sides, hearing each other out. Its part of continuing what I started off.The problem is, people dont have answers. I think everybody is searching for answers. People are searching for what to do and how to do it. Were not going to find answers overnight. Its not going to happen.?Anthonys advice to the participants?Be open-minded from both sides and all fronts, whether youre a police officer, a mailman, trashman, homeless, whoever you are. I just think its about being aware and open-minded, he said.Anthony has acknowledged he doesnt have answers to the issues surrounding policing and race relations in the country.But he hopes that events such as the scheduled discussion in Los Angeles can keep the conversation going.What Im doing now is trying to lay the foundation down and just trying to take advantage of this platform that we have, he said. Hopefully everybody in their own individual rights branch out and start doing things on their own.He also reiterated that he isnt concerned over any negative reaction he may encounter for speaking out on a volatile issue.I dont think nobody can tell me that at this point, he said when asked if anyone has told him not to organize the meeting. I wont listen to anybody that tells me I shouldnt do this or shouldnt do that.Information from ESPNs Ramona Shelburne was used in this report. Nike Shox Nz .

BOULDER, Colo. -- It is tempting to paint a portrait of No. 10 Colorado as everything we love about sports. A team that no one has taken seriously for a decade has clinched a tie for the Pac-12 South title and can nail down a place in the league championship game by defeating No. 12 Utah next week. The Buffaloes won their fifth consecutive game, dominating No. 22 Washington State in the second half on their way to a 38-24 victory.They are a team without stars, yet they are 9-2 (7-1 Pac-12). NFL scouts come to Buffalo practices and check to make sure they are on the right campus. This is the team that leads the Pac-12 South? Really?Colorado is a testament to hard work and belief and love amongst teammates and all those qualities that makes us escape to college football. But the Buffaloes demonstrated at Folsom Field on Saturday that they check all the fairy tale boxes and they are a seasoned, efficient team.In an era when stars leave for the NFL after three seasons, and graduates with eligibility shop for better opportunities, coach Mike MacIntyre has built a program of veterans who have stuck together through a lot of thin, hoping someday for some thick.The thick arrived Saturday at Folsom Field, with Colorados first victory over a ranked team in seven years. The Buffaloes?did it before 48,658 fans roaring as they did a quarter-century ago, when Colorado perennially stood prominently in the national picture.Its a lot different than our freshman year, said senior quarterback Sefo Liufau, the spiritual and offensive leader of this team, in order of importance.There hasnt been a lot to root for lately. Senior corner Chidobe Awuzie, whose seven tackles led the Buffs against the Cougars, meant it as praise for the fans when he recalled how great it was his sophomore year, when they stayed for the whole game when they lost in double overtime.The only time any Colorado fans left their seats Saturday was to run onto the field after the game. They had a lot to celebrate.Colorado gained 603 yards of total offense. Liufau threw for 345 yards and rushed 23 times for 108 yards and three touchdowns, despite playing with a painful left hip pointer that he suffered last week at Arizona. The injury forced him off the field this game for three plays in the fourth quarter.Tailback Phillip Lindsay, who runs as if a DNA test would reveal a strain of Tasmanian Devil, rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns on a career-high 31 carries. He scored the final, game-clinching touchdown with 4:18 to play from 11 yards out. Lindsay, listed at 5-foot-8 and 190, collided with Cougars safety Charleston White, who has Lindsay by 4 inches and 13 pounds. Lindsay, legs churning, moved White out of the way and pistoned into the end zone.The Buffs won the turnover battle, two to one, and they won third downs. Washington State, which came into the game converting more than half its tthird downs (50. Nike Shox Clearance. 7 percent), moved the chains on only 4 of 15 attempts.The momentum of the game turned early in the fourth quarter, with Colorado leading 28-24. Washington State faced a fourth-and-4 at the Colorado 18, and coach Mike Leach left his inconsistent kicker, Erik Powell, on the sideline. Earlier in the game, Leach tried to convert a fourth-and-7 from the Colorado 26 and failed.This time, quarterback Luke Falk had time to throw but liked nothing downfield. He dumped the ball off to Kyle Sweet, near the line of scrimmage. Safety Nick Fisher never left Sweet get near the first-down marker, taking him down well behind the 15-yard-line.One of them, I probably shouldve kicked a field goal, Leach said, but in the end it really wouldnt have mattered.Heres what makes Fishers play so special: he is a sophomore second-teamer, forced into action because starter Afolabi Laguda was ejected on a targeting foul in the first quarter and Lagudas replacement,?Ryan Moeller, suffered a concussion shortly after. Fisher finished with six tackles -- four on third down and one on fourth -- and a pass breakup against one of the most prolific passing offenses in the nation.I play special teams, Fisher said. Coach always talks about starring in your role. Tonight, my team needed me to step up. I tried to do that for them. I love my teammates. I want to win. Im playing for 9-2. Im playing for Sefo, this guy right here. Theres just so much love in that locker room. You dont want to let anyone down.Fisher stepped up, as did a walk-on defensive back named Lucas Cooper, who stepped in on special teams for Mueller, and on and on. This team may not have a lot of stars, but on Saturday they starred in their roles.Theres something else MacIntyre has been saying lately: We do not blink. And that means you keep looking and you keep fighting and you keep swinging. You dont worry about anything else.He first brought up the Buffs refusal to blink four weeks ago after an ugly 10-5 win at Stanford. The Buffs almost skipped off the field that day, bathing in the delight of being bowl-eligible for the first time since 2007.You may not recall that Independence Bowl, in which the 6-6 Buffs lost to 6-6 Alabama. Talk about going in different directions: in the next eight seasons, Alabama won four national championships and 101 games; Colorado won 27.No one is saying that Colorado is ready to play No. 1 Alabama again. But becoming bowl-eligible seems like such an afterthought. The Buffs are on the doorstep of playing the winner of the Apple Cup for the Pac-12 championship. If you are looking for a team that will remind you why you love sports, you may end up cheering for Ralphie the Buffalo to run.These days, Colorado is more than a cool mascot. Cheap Authentic Jerseys Discount NFL JerseysStitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys From China ' ' '

Brian Vitori, the Zimbabwe left-arm pacer, could make a return to competitive cricket this Friday after six months on the sidelines. Cheap Nationals Jerseys . Vitori, who was suspended for an illegal bowling action in February, and was retested and cleared last month, has been included in Zimbabwe As 16-man squad to play South Africa A in a first-class match in Bulawayo. He could lead the attack alongside Shingi Masakadza. Vitori will likely be competing for a place with Victor Nyauchi, who took three wickets in the Harare game that concluded on Tuesday, or Njabulo Ncube, who is one of two Bulawayo-based players that have been included in the squad. Sean Williams is the other, and will add both batting and bowling depth to the squad, as Zimbabwe prepare for their two-Test series against New Zealand, which will be played at the Queens Sports Club later this month.Zimbabwe made six changes to the group that played in Harare, mostly with a view to add international experience to their squad. Williams is joined by batsmen Craig Ervine and Tarisai Musakanda, legspinner Natsai Mshangwe, and seamers Njabulo Ncube and Vitori. John Nyumbu, Gerald Alisini and Richard Muzhange missed out.Vitori has not played any cricket since Zimbabwes domestic T20 competition in February, a month after he was cited for a suspect bowling action in a match against Bangladesh in Khulna. Vitori underwent testing in Chennai and the results revealed all of his deliveries exceeded the 15-degree limit. He was retested in Pretoria in June and cleared. He remains one of Zimbabwes most promising prospects, but his career has been blighted by injuries, including a stress fracture, and lengthy gaps in game time. However, with Zimbabwes talent pool searching for depth, he may provide some answers ahead of a busier than usual home summer.Zimbabwe are scheduled to play two Tests against New Zealand and the same number against Sri Lanka later in the year. Daniel Murphy Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Wholesale Nationals Jerseys Free Shipping .

You freshman grow up! Sophomores too! Weve got to quit being little kids! Mike Krzyzewski has seen enough. Pirates Jerseys Outlet . His team, the favorite to take the national championship, with a freshman class that includes four of the nations top 16 recruits, is setting weak screens and missing block-outs. Worse, the players are failing to talk to one another, as deadly a sin as youll find in the Gospel of K. So at a practice one month before the season, Krzyzewski calls his players the only thing that seems appropriate: little kids.It is also the one label that doesnt apply. Because while the Blue Devils have an abundance of young talent, there is nothing little about them.As his players watch, Krzyzewski orders 6-foot-10 sophomore Chase Jeter to flip his jersey from white to blue and motions for 6-10 freshman Javin DeLaurier to take Jeters place with the starters. When 6-11 freshman Marques Bolden fails to prevent an offensive rebound, he joins Jeter in blue while 6-7 Jack White slides to the first unit. Amile Jefferson, Dukes 6-9 senior captain, barks at his teammates to show some fire. And looking on from a folding chair, his left knee elevated and wrapped, healing from an arthroscopic procedure, is the nations top recruit, 6-10 freshman Harry Giles.In fact, according to ESPN Stats & Information, the Blue Devils have never fielded such a giant squad: Nine of Dukes players are 6-8 or taller. Few teams in the last 10 years have had that blend of size, depth, experience and NBA first-round talent, an ACC assistant says. Adds an NBA executive who attended Dukes pro day in late October: Its kind of crazy. Ive rarely seen this much size and talent on one college team.Question is, what will Coach K do with all of it?DUKE BASKETBALL IS known for many things. Size and depth are not two of them.Two years ago, Duke won the national championship with only eight scholarship players. The 2015-16 squad often rotated just six men. Meanwhile, last decade, the Blue Devils went through a stretch in which they missed on the majority of the big men they recruited. Brandan Wright, Blake Griffin, Patrick Patterson, Greg Monroe-they all spurned Duke for other programs. For a time, Duke played and even excelled with four-guard lineups and NBA wings masquerading as centers-think Kyle Singler and Lance Thomas.So when associate head coach Jeff Capel returned to his alma mater in 2011, he discovered a recruiting landscape rife with negative stereotypes about how Duke handled bigs. Rival coaches would tell prospects that Duke catered to guards, that big men would spend four years setting screens. Scare tactics, Capel says.Krzyzewski needed an example he could reference in real time, and in 2012-13, 6-11 Mason Plumlee became that guy, averaging 17.1 points and 9.9 rebounds and earning the Pete Newell Award as the nations best big man.Then came 6-11 Jahlil Okafor, who fundamentally changed the conversation. When Duke landed him before the 2014-15 season, Krzyzewski built an attack centered on Okafors array of low-post moves and preternatural ability to pass out of double-teams. The result was the nations third-most efficient offense, according to kenpom.com, a national championship and a new message for hyped prospects: Duke was back in business for bigs.Jah being here really set the tone for all the bigs that, like me, are coming through, says Bolden, a McDonalds All-American. We saw how much they played through him.Among the current freshmen, Giles was the big prize. Duke landed him last November, and the North Carolina native and his close friend Jayson Tatum (himself 6-8) gave Coach K the top two players in the class of 2016. But Duke wasnt satisfied and kept chasing Bolden; the Blue Devils saw him as a true back-to-the-basket center with soft hands and advanced footwork.The massive Texan-Bolden weighs 250 pounds and has a 7-6 wingspan-took his time deciding. He was fully aware of the size of Dukes roster and could have stepped into a 30-minute, 15-shot role virtually anywhere else. But as the rest of the top recruits came off the board and the calendar turned to May, he opted to join Krzyzewskis army of giants.He saw a need, that theres no one like him in our program, Capel says. And the recruiting class that we already had signed, the guys we had coming back, I think he wanted to be a part of something like that.Adds Bolden: I didnt want to shy away from any competition. Anything worth having isnt easy.WHICH BRINGS US to Coach Ks dilemma: When the injured Giles, Bolden and Tatum return to the lineup, he will have more bigs than he can possibly use-and a penchant for small ball.Duke is just as stacked on the perimeter. Grayson Allen is the preseason ACC player of the year. Tatum should be a top-five pick in next Junes NBA draft. Shooting guard Luke Kennard could be a 2,000-point scorer if he plays four years at Duke. Freshman Frank Jackson, yet another McDonalds All-American, is the closest thing Duke has to a point guard. And senior Matt Jones started on the 2014-15 national championship team. Krzyzewski says Allen has got to play 30-something minutes a game. Even before Bolden got hurt, Coach K had already planned to use Tatum at the 4 spot in spurts. That would leave fewer than 80 total available minutes for Dukes bigs, a hefty portion of which will belong to Jefferson-the teams vocal leader-and a healthy Giles. Do the math and its clear several players will be left out of the rotation entirely.But Krzyzewski isnt worried about keeping people happy. He proves that at the lackluster Friday practice. Ill play five guys! he shouts as his players look on, hands on hips. Im not gonna do the thing where everybody gets playing time. His message evokes memories of Kentuckys team from two years ago. It too was loaded with size and talent, and coach John Calipari famously implemented a platoon system in the first part of the season, winning the first 38 games before losing to Wisconsin in the Final Four. That group is the best proxy for this Duke squad, but Krzyzewski isnt Calipari and wont spread minutes evenly.Now more than ever that type of crunch for playing time can lead to attrition in college basketball. And if history is any guide, Duke wont begrudge anyone who departs: Since 2012 alone, the Blue Devils have lost six players. Some guys stick it out. Some guys, if its not happening for them right away, they leave, Capel says. A kid has to make a choice of what he thinks he should do.But if a big man chooses to stay, his resilience might be rewarded. Look at Jeter. He was the nations No. 11 recruit coming out of high school but played less than eight minutes per game as a freshman last season. As Krzyzewski added more and more stars to this freshman class, no one could have blamed the 6-10 Jeter for bolting. Instead, he went to work. And with Giles recovering from his scoped knee and Bolden suffering a lower leg injury in November, Jeter opened the season as Dukes top center. These guys are my teammates, he says, but we have to be willing to go between the lines every day and fight for a spot.Duke has already seen how capricious a basketball season can be. It lost Tatum for two weeks during the preseason after he sprained his foot. Just as he was coming back, Bolden went down. Giles hasnt played in a year, though hes getting closer. Other issues will doubtlessly emerge, and yet Dukes depth puts it in a unique position to absorb them.Krzyzewski will tinker with that depth, especially early, studying it to see which combinations work and might be effective come conference play, which prospects he can mold into cornerstones. Whether the lineup is big or small, Duke will press full-court more than it has in recent years since fatigue shouldnt be an issue, and it has the length to play a stifling zone. Coach K, in other words, might prefer a style of play, but hes not inflexible. We could put some interesting lineups out on the court, and one of the cool things about Coach is hes open to it, Capel says. Hell try things.And hell push. The day before that lackluster practice in Cameron, the Blue Devils went at each other in high-intensity drills and furious games of five-on-five for nearly three hours. Krzyzewski says there was more contact that one afternoon than in a months worth of practices last year, when he simply tried to nurse his depleted squad through the season. Now he can challenge his players.Luke is busting your ass! Krzyzewski shouts after Allen recklessly throws himself into a defender, looking for a foul. He watches Jeter dunk off a pick-and-roll and Bolden respond with a nifty drop step. Theres no need to hold back this year, not with so many players ready to take the job of a teammate who falters. Not with such big expectations. Starling Marte Jersey .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. Gregory Polanco Jersey .

PETERSBURG, Alaska -- It wasnt a record breaker, but it was still a helluva halibut. Adidas Gazelle Leather Crystal Blanche/Cream Blanche .Petersburg radio station KFSK reports (http://bit.ly/2b8JfBE) that fishermen Brian Mattson and Doug Corl hauled in the catch of a lifetime Sunday with a 396-pound halibut in southeast Alaska.

BROOKLYN, Mich. Wade Boggs Jersey . -- Chris Buescher remained in position to reach the Chase for the Sprint Cup.Barely.Buescher felt fortunate to finish 35th on Sunday in the NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway after dealing with engine problems, and he managed to stay in 30th place in the Cup standings. As long as he stays in the top 30, hell be in the Chase thanks to his victory at Pocono earlier this month.Buescher leads David Ragan by seven points for the No. 30 spot.It definitely could have been a lot worse, Buescher said. If we would have had a DNF we would have lost another five points and been right on the bubble. Unfortunately, we were too many laps down to make up anything. The way the race played out there were no wave-around opportunities, hardly any lucky dogs with those little cautions. It was kind of a wild day.Buescher needs to stay in the top 30 for two more races. Then the Chase begins. He was 13 points ahead of Ragan before this race.Buescher started 21st at Michigan, but just four laps into Sundays race, he radioed his team of potential engine problems. By the 20th lap, he was sitting in last place.His crew repeatedly opened the hood of his car and replaced spark plugs.I know it isnt fun opening a hood of a race car that is as hot as it is and trying to work on it, he said. Kudos to my guys for keeping their heads down and working at it and getting it fixed. Usually when you have engine trouble you are along for the ride. It ended up being something a little bit more simple than I guess we originally figured. Mitch Moreland Jersey .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. Brock Holt Jersey .

With the new season just a day away, Sky Sports Speedway expert Nigel Pearson analyses the winter business in the Elite League and looks at what the season has in store for all eight clubs. Ferguson Jenkins Jersey . Belle Vue Aces are a very solid looking side and they are in my top four straight away, they are play-off material no doubt about that. They will take a few weeks to settle in, there will be no home track advantage in the short term with the new stadium, which is a huge bonus for British speedway for a famous club like Belle Vue to finally have a new stadium after all of these years talking about it, its a fantastic achievement. On the track I like the look of their team. Theyve got a good spearhead in Matej Zagar who is naturally a world class rider. He was one of the last riders to be announced so I had my worries that Zagar wouldnt be back at Belle Vue, only as he was one of the last to be announced and Im delighted he is back. Scotty (Nicholls) is a very solid reliable scorer, he will get you points wherever you go. Theres the Worrall boys (Steve and Richie), Ive worked with Steve myself, hes a class act. For me, Max Fricke is one of the most young talented riders in the Elite League and if he keeps his nose clean and steers clear of injury I see no reason why he cant become a Grand Prix rider in the future. I like the look of the side, top four material and possibly grand final material. Belle Vues new home: The National Speedway Stadium Coventry Bees have got what it takes to be pushing for a play-off spot. I admire Jason Garrity for going up a level into the main body of the team. His time has come and hes a fantastic rider to watch. If you know he is coming to your local track, youre thinking yeah Ill pay money to watch that, hes terrific to watch. Chris Harris is a solid campaigner and Ive got huge respect that he keeps proving the critics wrong by qualifying for the Grand Prix year after year and hes a huge favourite at Coventry and will score plenty of points. Theres a big uncertainty over the new Polish rider Kacper Woryna but they have the potential to challenge for a play-off place and they need (Krzysztof) Kasprzak to fire. He is a great enigma of the sport, if he does not fire they wont win the league title, if he does they might have a shout. Jason Garrity makes the step up from reserve For the Kings Lynn Stars, I think Robert Lambert will make the step up again, hes a naturally talented speedway rider and Im delighted to see him riding in the Elite League and also for Great Britain in the World Cup. Hes a great talent and we should celebrate that talent as a nation without putting too much pressure on him, hes a key member of the team. (Troy) Batchelor on his day is a class rider. On the Grand Prix stage those days did not happen often enough  but I saw him in Copenhagen in the last Parken Grand Prix and he went through the card, winning six races and just missing out in the final, thats what he is capable of doing. Hes going back to his roots in many ways by going back to Kings Lynn; he knows the track, the club and the people there. (Niels-Kristian) Iversen you know what you are going to get from him in the first six weeks of the season.If Batchelor is 100% fit when he comes back and ready to go I expect him to slot in and maybe where youll get a ten point score from Iversen, Batchelor on his day is capable of an eight or a nine. I know Keith Chapman has had concerns about his team building but hes done a pretty good job and Kings Lynn will be tough to beat around the Adrian Flux Arena and I like the balance of the side. It was a surprise when they went for the German rider (Kai) Huckenbeck, because I thought when Bjarne Pedersen left Lakeside in controversial circumstances that perhaps Kings Lynn would make a move for him but obviously theyd gone so far down the line with Huckenbeck  and have signed him. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to British speedway.They will be tough to beat around their own track, a lot will depend on how (Rory) Schlein comes back from his serious back injury, a very brave move to come back into the sport and a lot will depend on how Batchelor comes back from his injury and how the German slots in, so theres a few unknowns where they are concerned. Robert Lambert produced one of the rides of 2015 for Kings Lynn Lakeside Hammers could have their End of Season awards night in April last year because their season was over, so a much better start is needed this season. Obviously I have spoken to Kelvin (Tatum) a lot about Lakeside and I know he is looking forward to working in the background with riders and the Hagon Shocks Academy, working with the youngsters.Robert Mear returns to the sport and Ive seen him claim some major scalps around Lakeside and he has still taken occasional laps on a bike even though he has sat out the sport. I know Martin Hagon has supplied him with machines to make his comeback, so I see no reason why he cant do well around Purfleet. Lewis Bridger also returns to the sport and I dont know how that one will work out. Hes a naturally talented rider and hes good to watch especially around a track like Lakeside. Jon Cook has followed him since he started at Weymouth and Eastbourne and has been there working with him and if anyone can make Bridger tick it will be Jon Cook and Kelvin Tatum.Kelvin insisted on meeting Bridger and virtually giving him a job interview before recruiting him into the side as they wanted to be absolutely certain and he came through with flying colours. If Bridger gets it right and Mear comes back well you know AJ (Andreas Jonsson) will score you points at the top end and riders like Edward Kennett will breeze around Lakeside. If they can go through the card at home and have 14 unbeaten home meetings, theyll be in the play-offs, their away form is their Achilles heel. Lewis Bridger returns to speedway for the Hammers Leicester Lions losing Jason Doyle for 2016 was a blow and its a major concern at Leicester that riders do not last a season, Mikkel Michelsen and Bjarne Pedersen to name but two and the Saturday race night has not helped them. I know for a fact that Krzysztof Kasprzak could have ended up with Leicester if they were not a Saturday night track, there are riders that will not go there as it is a Saturday evening , thats their decision and it is their business. Theyve built a side to try and win home meetings, that is clear, and they will hope to get a surprise or two on the road.Theyve made alterations to the track, its disappointing they didnt get the shape of the track right from a blank piece of paper. How they did not get that right from the start, goodness only knows and they are altering it already within a few years of opening. Hopefully it will have the desired effect and we will see some good speedway and the fans will back their team in big numbers but I dont expect them to be challenging for the play-offs, but it would be nice to see them spring a surprise or two and maybe be the spoilers of the Elite League. Patrick Hougaard returns to Leicester Lions Poole Pirates have been very clever in the way they have built their team. Krzyzstof Buczkowski was a signing that caused a lot of controversy and came under the microscope from a lot of other jealous clubs who did not like it and challenged it. Matt Ford did his homework and Neil Middleditch did his homework. He has come into their team and was available to every other club but Poole spotted that he was not included on the heat leader list, which was an oversight from other clubs, as he should have been but wasnt. Poole signed him knowing they could sign (Chris) Holder, (Davey) Watt and (Hans) Andersen as heat leaders as Buczkowski was left off the list. Im a bit disappointed to still see Kyle Newman as a draft rider because hes proved he has the ability to mix it with the top five, but now that these riders are to receive averages Im sure well see him move out of the reserve berth quickly in any case.With Jason Garrity having moved up, Kyle is the top reserve in the league so its incredible that hes only ranked sixth on the draft list, based on Premier League performances, enabling Poole to also sign a strong second reserve in Adam Ellis. So that is two mistakes from the promoters, Poole have taken full advantage and who can blame them? For me, this makes them untouchable around Wimborne Road, they are definite play-off material and people wont like me saying this but they have a standout team that will take some stopping for a fourth title on the trot.They are my tip for the title. I will also add they made a big play straight off for Hans Andersen and if he can get back to his best then youve got him, Watt and Holder and for me youre looking at number one riders there, theres class in every position. Hans Andersen was the first name signed up for the Pirates As for Swindon Robins, I was very impressed at how quickly they snapped up Rohan Tungate after Dakota North unfortunately made himself unavailable due to his fathers health issues. Tungate has been a vital part of Pooles success in the Elite League in the past. They are going to rely heavily on the Aussie team spirit factor and if they can do that and click as a unit then theyll take some stopping around the Abbey.In terms of away from home only time will tell. (Jason) Doyle is a good number one, he is fifth in the world, hes come of age and has been a late developer if you like but he is one of the best riders in the world now and its good for them to have him back. Thats a good spearhead, they lost Leigh Adams as a spearhead and obviously had Darcy Ward there for ten meetings last year and he did a phenomenal job there for Swindon and I know that Alun Rossiter has said its been an honour and a privilege to have Darcy wear the Swindon colours, albeit for a short period of time.Swindon thrive on an out and out number one and theyve got that in Doyle now. Nick Morris can still step up a level or two in my opinion, hes got great potential and Justin Sedgmen is back at a club he knows, its a big year for him and it will be interesting to see how he does. If they all click theres no reason why they cant be there or there abouts, Im not saying they will be definite top four but theyll be knocking on the door. Jason Doyle made the winter switch to Swindon There was a general acceptance that there needed to be a new look Wolverhampton Wolves this year. Freddie Lindgren on his average and status on the heat leader list was too good to turn down. It was a ridiculous average for a rider like him. On his day he is a fantastic rider its just his day did not come often enough  last year . I like Sam Masters, he was a wildcard at the Melbourne GP last year and did well and will freshen the place up.Joonas Kylmakorpi is big friends with Lindgren, they live in the same area of Andorra and spent a lot of the winter training together, so theres a good cohesion there between those two. Jacob Thorssell has got big potential and its a big year for him, if hes going to make it as a world class rider, this is the year he has to make the breakthrough.Mikkel Bech on his day around Monmore Green is unstoppable, hes got a great record there as a Lakeside rider and I think hell be happy there. Pretty much like Lakeside if Wolverhampton can go unbeaten in all their home meetings  then they have a chance of reaching  the play-offs but I dont think theyve got enough to challenge for the league title.

The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. OAKLAND, Calif. -- A foot-long dark burn scar going from Mike Browns right quadriceps down his lower leg reminds him each day of his good fortune.There are also the dozen or so round burn blotches on his right arm, and a tiny spot on his lip that would go unnoticed except that the new Warriors assistant knows its there.The old coach of stars like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant during stints with the Cavaliers and Lakers endured quite a memorable couple of years out of the NBA spotlight. He worked informally for Gregg Popovich in San Antonio. He found a place in Albuquerque so he could regularly watch his oldest son, Elijah, play basketball for New Mexico. Then, Brown survived a frightening May kitchen fire at his Cleveland home with his younger son.He has moved forward and found himself in an ideal situation that might just lead to another opportunity to be a head coach down the line. He replaced former top assistant Luke Walton, now coaching the Lakers.NBA Coach of the Year with the Cavs in 2009, Brown realizes he landed in a great spot with Golden State, next to reigning Coach of the Year Steve Kerr and up close to MVP Stephen Curry and prized offseason acquisition Kevin Durant.Brown is thrilled to be talking basketball again, back to the daily routine of practice, meetings, film study and scouting opponents. He was fired in May 2014 by the Cavs after a second stint as coach.All of the scrutiny he faced there seems so minor now.One scary day in May, Brown was upstairs in his Cleveland home packing for a fun weekend away in Florida with a buddy when son Cameron screamed from the kitchen below that there was a fire. The 19-year-old was frying pecan dessert he had made before when the oil caught fire. Brown rushed down, stepped in to stop the flames and slipped on some oil. He found himself on the kitchen floor, his right side burning.It was May 27, Brown says. Ill never forget the day. Thats my youngest sons birthday.Brown was wearing shorts. Had he been in long pants, it would have been far worse. His right foot burned, too, the flames going right through a good pair of sneakers.They didnt call 911, driving to a hospital five minutes away. Brown walked into the emergency room and was immediately hit with two shots of morphine. He spent the night.You just react, Brown recalled of the terrifying ordeal. And then when its over you realize, `Boy, I cant believe that it happened. I could have died, my son could have. You think of stuff like that after its over and you just realize how precious your time is here. ... It was a crazy experience to say the least.Brown walked arounnd Warriors media day last month with a big grin and distinctively dressed in long basketball shorts with a suit jacket and tie, clearly comfortable and thriving in his new surroundings. Youth Rangers Jerseys. Its pretty hard not to with the vibe Golden State has going. After capturing the 2015 NBA championship, the Warriors set NBA records with a 24-0 start last season and a 73-win finish before losing to the Cavs in Game 7 of the Finals.Its very refreshing to see the true relationships everybody has, Brown said. From top down, its been refreshing, its been fun, its been a learning experience. You always want to be able to contribute something.And it is the defensive-minded Brown who recently proposed a new substitution pattern to Kerr with the idea of keeping two starters on the floor at all times -- meaning Curry, Durant and fellow All-Stars Draymond Green and Klay Thompson will get their much-needed breaks throughout the course of a 48-minute game.Mike is very detail-oriented. Hes brought me a lot of good stuff in terms of Xs and Os but also substitution patterns. Were really revamping our substitution look this year, said Kerr, who played in San Antonio at the end of his career while Brown was an assistant to Popovich. Mike was better in math than I was, so Mike is very methodical and sort of numbers-oriented. Hes been great in practice, hes fun to be around, so hes doing a great job.Brown spent part of the past year observing and offering input to Popovich in an unofficial capacity.He hopes to do something to repay Popovich someday for the opportunity.Pop is obviously a great coach but hes a great man. I cherish the relationship that I have with him, Brown said. This past year for me was fantastic because it gave me an opportunity to be involved in the game but to get close to my boys in the same breath. Whenever they werent playing or I wasnt visiting with them, I was with the Spurs. I was traveling with them, I was in their meetings, I was at all the practices. I didnt do any on-court coaching because I wasnt working but again hes open. He would ask me my opinion, I would sit in the coaches meetings, sit in the locker room before the games, halftime, the end of games. It was a great experience for me just being connected to the game again.With all Brown went through over the past year, he is enjoying every moment of his new gig.Now Im here in the Bay Area, Im a Warrior, Im hanging with Steve, the rest of the staff, Draymond, KD, he said. Its good. Cheap Authentic Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys From China ' ' '

ALAMEDA, Calif. Alex Rodriguez Jersey . -- Raiders running back Latavius Murray will miss his second consecutive game because of a toe injury, leaving rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard to split the majority of carries against Kansas City on Sunday.Murray has not practiced since Oaklands Week 4 win in Baltimore and has declined to discuss his injury with reporters. Murray wore a walking boot for a few days last week but has not been seen in it this week.The Raiders averaged 148.3 rushing yards through the first three weeks of the season but have not been as effective over the last two games. They had just 62 rushing yards against the Ravens and were held to 89 yards by the San Diego Chargers last week while Murray sat out.Murray will be a spectator again on Sunday when Oakland tries to maintain its hold on first place in the AFC West.We have that next-man-up mentality, Raiders fullback Jamize Olawale said Friday.
