Brook was taken to hospital after for a suspected broken eye socket.Eubank Jr tweeted after the fight: If you want a fight with a real British Middleweight...come get some. My corner dont own towels.Warren also said Eubank Jr, along with his father and former world champion Eubank Sr, damaged their reputations by calling for the fight against Golovkin only to then refuse to sign for the fight.This fella Eubank only talks about what he wants and the things he said about [Brooks trainer] Dominic Ingle are disgraceful, Warren said.

    ST. Mike Ribeiro Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jarred Cosart had difficulty getting to sleep, so he spent much of the night before his major league debut online and learned he was about to face the hottest team in baseball. Turns out he had little reason to be restless. The 23-year-old Cosart took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and the Houston Astros beat AL Cy Young Award winner David Price 2-1 on Friday night to end the Tampa Bay Rays season-best, eight-game winning streak. "I try to stay off the Internet the day before, but I couldnt sleep last night," he said. "So I was messing around, I looked at the Rays website, I see: Streaking Rays, Price pitching, all that good stuff. "Its a natural instinct. Youre like, OK, theyre good." Cosart (1-0) limited the Rays, who have won 10 of 12 during a 14-game stretch against the American Leagues three worst teams, to a pair of walks before All-Star Ben Zobrist singled with one out in the seventh. Evan Longoria grounded into a double play to end the inning. Cosart also yielded a single to James Loney in the eighth and was removed after walking pinch-hitter Kelly Johnson leading off the ninth. Cosart threw 96 pitches, 54 for strikes. Cosart was he was "very nervous" before facing Price, who reached out to him on Twitter early Friday. "He tweeted at me this morning and said good luck, and most of all have fun," Cosart said. "I look up to him. Hes one of the best pitchers in the game. "That was my thing, not to go out there and try to be David Price or beat David Price. Hes a Cy Young winner, All-Star, all that stuff. I knew if I did that Id probably overthrow. I just wanted to go out there and be myself, pitch down in the zone." Carlos Corporans two-run, first-inning single provided all the support Cosart needed to beat Price (3-5), who allowed eight hits and struck out three in a complete-game performance. Four of the five Rays who reached base against Cosart were erased by double plays. Jose Veras gave up an unearned run on Luke Scotts two-out RBI single in the ninth, but struck out Longoria with the potential tying run on third base to notch his 18th save. "You watched him in spring training. The times he went out you could tell this is a special arm," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "What I like about tonight was the level of composure he displayed. "I just thought he did a great job of managing his emotions and really honing in on exactly how he wanted to pitch guys." It was the second straight day that a rookie right-hander made his big league debut against a reigning Cy Young winner. Clevelands Danny Salazar took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of the Indians 4-2 victory over R.A. Dickey and the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday. Cosart was equally impressive after being promoted earlier Friday from Triple A Oklahoma City, where he went 7-4 with a 3.29 ERA in 18 appearances, including 17 starts. He began the night by retiring nine in a row before walking Desmond Jennings to lead off the fourth. Wil Myers drew a one-out walk in the fifth, but was erased when Matt Joyce grounded into an inning-ending double play. Zobrist hit a one-hopper past diving second baseman Jose Altuve for Tampa Bays first hit. Loney singled leading off the eighth, but Houston turned its third double play to thwart the prospect of a comeback. Porter was reluctant to compare Cosarts debut with those of other young pitchers who have made an early splash. "I think a lot of times when you have guys come up who are top prospects, one of the worst things you can do is start throwing out comparables," Porter said. "Jarred Cosart will establish who Jarred Cosart is, and I want to give him an opportunity to do that. I think he has the stuff to be an elite pitcher in this league, and over time he will answer all those questions." Despite a rough first inning, Price was solid in his third start since rejoining the Rays from a 47-day stay on the disabled list with a triceps strain. He beat the Astros 8-0 at Minute Maid Park in his return on July 2, then held the Chicago White Sox to one run in a complete game victory last Sunday. The Astros loaded the bases in the first on singles by Jake Elmore, Chris Carter and J.D. Martinez. Corporans single to centre produced a 2-0 lead. Houston scattered four hits over the final eight innings, but only had one runner -- Matt Dominguez, who doubled leading off the fifth -- get past first base. "That first inning, that puts us in a hole. Thats probably part of the reason Cosart had so much success," Price said. "I gave him two runs before he made a pitch, and I know the difference in having runs, especially if you can get them in the first before you go out there." NOTES: With the All-Star break beginning Monday, Cosart will return to Triple-A Oklahoma City "so he can stay in turn and then hopefully rejoin" the Astros at some point this year," Porter said. ... Astros OF Justin Maxwell, on the seven-day concussion disabled list, will be activated on Saturday to replace Cosart on the roster. ... Before this week, only two pitchers had made their big league debuts against a reigning Cy Young Award winner since 2000 -- Edwin Jackson for the Dodgers against Randy Johnson in 2003, and John Danks for the White Sox against Johan Santana in 2007. ... The Rays went 24-20 while Price was on the DL. They are 10-2 since his return. ... After Tampa Bay pitchers struck out 32 in the final two games of a four-game sweep on Minnesota, Price fanned three on Friday. The franchise record for a three-game span is 42. Craig Smith Predators Jersey . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. Mattias Ekholm Jersey . The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose.http://www.predatorshockeypro.com/authentic-ryan-johansen-predators-jersey/ .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury.CARSON, Calif. -- Robbie Keane scored three goals and the Los Angeles Galaxy rallied to beat Western Conference-leading Real Salt Lake 4-2 on Saturday night. Keane scored in the 56th, 67th and 86th minutes to help the Galaxy (11-9-4) pull four points behind Salt Lake and tighten an eight-team battle for five West playoff berths. The top seven teams are separated by eight points, with San Jose another three points back. Omar Gonzalez, who signed a designated player contract this week, also scored for Los Angeles. The Galaxy could had two more -- but those were stopped on the goal line, first by Chris Wingert on Landon Donovan two minutes after Keanes first goal and by Kenny Mansally on Todd Dunivant near the end. "We played well the whole 90 (minutes)," said Donovan, whose corner kick Gonzalez headed home in the 75th minute for a 3-1 lead. "We probably deserved a 4- or 5-0 game, but real happy wiith how we performed. Mike Fisher Jersey. quot; Panamanian goalkeeper Jaime Penedo made his MLS debut for the Galaxy, making a fine save on Alvaro Saborios shot to the upper-right corner three minutes into the second half. Joao Plata gave Real Salt Lake (12-8-5) a lead in the 53rd minute, finishing from a wonderful touch by Ned Grabavoy. Keane scored from a long pass by Juninho to tie it, then volleyed Los Angeles ahead off a cross by Sean Franklin 11 minutes later. Keane got his 10th goal to complete his hat trick in the 86th, lifting the ball over rushing goalkeeper Nick Rimando. "What can I say," Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis said. "I think (Los Angeles is) extremely effective in what they do, and if theyre on their game, sometimes youre just gonna have to say theyre the better team, and I think thats what we have to say tonight." Robbie Findley scored in the 90th for Salt Lake. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

    In order to help you set your lineups and avoid starting a player who doesnt take the field, we will be posting fantasy-relevant updates and analysis here as NFL teams release their Sunday inactive lists prior to kickoff. Mateo Kovacic Jersey . Any rankings cited in this column come from our ESPN Fantasy staff ranks.Refresh often for the latest information.Ruled out before SundayTE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring), QB Tony Romo (back), RB Kenneth Dixon (knee), TE Tyler Eifert (ankle), RB Jay Ajayi (non-injury), Kendall Wright (hamstring), WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder)Top players were watchingEarly games, 1 p.m. ET (nine scheduled)WR Kevin White (hamstring, questionable): active RB Chris Ivory (calf, questionable): inactive RB Jamaal Charles (knee, doubtful): inactive RB Javorius Allen (healthy scratch): inactive RB C.J. Spiller (healthy scratch): inactive WR Michael Thomas (Saints) (ankle, questionable): active WR Charles Johnson (quadricep, questionable): active RB Jerick McKinnon (foot, questionable): active WR Jeff Janis (hand, questionable): active RB Jonathan Williams (ribs, questionable): inactive TE Dennis Pitta (finger, questionable): active TE Maxx Williams (knee, questionable): active LB David Harris (shoulder, questionable): activeLate games, 4:05 and 4:25 p.m. ET (three scheduled)WR DeVante Parker (hamstring, questionable): inactive TE Jimmy Graham (knee, questionable): active TE Eric Ebron (ankle, questionable): active WR Golden Tate (ankle, questionable): activeSunday night game, 8:30 p.m. ETWR Chris Hogan (shoulder, questionable): active WR Malcolm Mitchell (elbow, questionable): activeUpdates/analysis (most recent first)Miami running backs (2:30 PM): Not only is Jay Ajayi not playing for Miami today, but reserve RB Isaiah Pead will sit out for todays contest against Seattle. That leaves Arian Foster, Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake as the healthy options for the Fins at the running back position. Foster is obviously the one to focus on for fantasy.DeVante Parker (12:00 PM): While the official inactives have yet to be released for the afternoon contest between the Dolphins and Seahawks, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post is reporting that DeVante Parker will miss out for Miami. This boosts the fantasy value of Kenny Stills as well as providing a higher target share for Jarvis Landry, although the matchup is obviously less than ideal.C.J. Spiller (11:49 AM): Mark Ingram will put the New Orleans running game on his back this week, as C.J. Spiller is a surprise inactive for the Saints. ESPN NFL Nation reporter Mike Triplett says the team was high on Spiller based on his preseason work and comments from coaches, but apparently it wasnt enough to earn a spot on the active roster for Week 1.Javorius Allen (11:30 AM): The Ravens are going with two running backs today, Justin Forsett and Terrance West, as Allen joins Kenneth Dixon on the inactives list. This is a nice boost to the two remaining Baltimore backs, who should see all of the passing work out of the backfield and have more secure carries.Chris Ivory (11:29 AM): Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports that Ivory will be inactive for todays game against the Packers. This boosts T.J. Yeldons value considerably, as hell be the lead back for the Jaguars and retains his role as the top pass-catching option out of the backfield.Kevin White (9:07 AM): The long-awaited regular season debut of Kevin White should happen today, as our Jeff Dickerson reports that the 2015 first-round pick will get the start against the Texans today, barring a setback. The Texans have a solid defense and there are questions as to how well the Bears offense will perform this season, but someone will have to catch passes from Jay Cutler this season and White has tons of potential. Eric Karabell ranked White the highest for Week 1 among our staff rankers, placing him 35th among wideouts. Hes a flex or deeper league option for this week.Jamaal Charles (8:55 AM): After being listed as doubtful, its no surprise to learn that Jamaal Charles will not play today, per ESPNs Adam Schefter. Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West should see most of the running back touches for the Chiefs in a fantastic matchup against San Diego, but its Ware who is most likely to get valuable red-zone work and is a solid play in all fantasy formats.Rob Gronkowski (Friday): Despite being initially listed as questionable, Gronkowski did not make the trip to Arizona and will not play, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN. The Patriots added Martellus Bennett this offseason to complement Gronk, but Bennett will be the star of the show at tight end for New England in their Sunday evening opener.Official Sunday inactives should begin coming in at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET for the early set of games, 2:30 p.m. ET for the later set and 7:00 p.m. ET for the Sunday night contest. Ruben Yanez Real Madrid Jersey . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year. "We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. Kiko Casilla Jersey . Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April. American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. http://www.realmadridcfstore.com/Women-Luka-Modric-Real-Madrid-Jersey/ . Pert has formerly spent time as an assistant coach with Cardiff City, Coventry City, and Bahrain mens national team. "Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Its almost a sure thing that Coastal Carolina running back DeAngelo Hop Henderson will find the end zone.The Chants fifth-year senior holds the NCAA Division I mark for consecutive games with a touchdown, currently 29 games and counting. Henderson ran past the old mark of 27 set by Virginia Tech runner Lee Suggs from 2000 through 2002 with his 17-yard burst in the opening quarter of Coastals 49-10 victory over Florida A&M on Sept. 10. Henderson extended things last Saturday with his 4-yard TD run in the third quarter of a 27-26 loss at Jacksonville State.I didnt even know much about it until the guys started talking about last year, Henderson said.Thats when Henderson topped the Football Championship Series mark of 20 previously held by Monmouth running back David Sinisi in the 2006 and 2007 seasons. Henderson looked at scoring touchdowns as his job on the field, but acknowledges hes enjoyed his run to the record.Its real cool, Henderson said.Hell try to keep the streak going Saturday against Furman.Coastal Carolina coach Joe Moglia, hired before Hendersons redshirt season in 2012, said Henderson has been accountable and reliable from the moment they met. So it was a no brainer, Moglia said, trusting him with the ball around the goal line when Coastal needed points.Hes a hard worker, Moglia said. It was easy to have confidence in him.Henderson, nicknamed Hop in high school because he appears to hop when changing directions on cuts, grew up dreaming of big time football while starring for Summerville High. He was a finalist for South Carolinas Mr. Football award in 2010, an honor eventually won by Houston Texans first-overall NFL draft pick Jadeveon Clowney.Henderson had thought he would join Clowney, who played college ball at South Carolina, at a Southeastern Conference or Atlantic Coast Conference school. But at 5-foot-8, Hendersson was considered too small to make it at a Power Five program and signed with the Chanticleers. Dani Carvajal Jersey. enderson spent his first season off the field strengthening his academics, then red-shirted in 2012 because Coastal Carolina had a glut of running backs including FCS All-American Lorenzo Taliaferro.When Henderson did play, he wasted little time having an impact. His first college touchdown came in his fourth game of 2013, a 2-yard run in a blowout win over Hampton.Hendersons streak started the next season as he took over as a starter from Taliaferro with a 5-yard scoring run against Citadel. Henderson help lead the Chants into the FCS playoffs where they lost in the semifinals to eventual champion North Dakota State.Henderson broke the FCS consecutive games with a TD mark at Monmouth last season with Sinisi in attendance. This has been a very special time for me, Henderson said.Hes got more ahead. Should Henderson keep the touchdown streak going this season -- Coastal is transitioning between its FCS past and the Football Bowl Subdivision after joining the Sun Belt Conference last July -- he will tie the all division mark of 38 held by Chadron States Danny Woodhead.Henderson, who graduated after his junior season, considered leaving college this spring and got what he said was good feedback from the NFL draft advisory board. But Henderson said he wanted to finish his college journey the right way.If he matches Woodheads mark, great, Henderson said. His goal remains the same each game -- do what he can to help Coastal Carolina succeed.The streak has never been on my mind, Henderson said. Its nothing I think about. I just want to play as well as I can.---Online: AP College Football website www.collegefootball.ap.orgCheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

    News of Jon Jones being off UFC 200, spoiling a rematch with Daniel Cormier, resonated with people inside and outside of the fighting world. Marc Gasol Jersey .Also chiming in was Conor McGregors coach John Kavanagh, who used Jones being pulled as an opportunity to gripe about McGregors absence from the card. Tony Allen Grizzlies Jersey . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. Jarell Martin 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. http://www.grizzliesbasketballpro.com/ . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No.Gary Christian looks back at last week’s Northern Trust Open, picks out his West Coast swing highlights and predicts a big few weeks ahead for Rory McIlroy. It has been a spectacular West Coast swing, certainly living up to the billing with some great comeback stories and impressive rounds on some outstanding courses.Riviera is one of the top five courses on the PGA Tour and is one where you really need to have played it a handful of times to really get a good handle on it. Its just a very, very good golf course and you cant really spray it all over the place. Bubba Watson moved back to world No 4 with victory Bubba Watson had one of those weeks at the Northern Trust Open where his driving was straight, so that 320-yard average is a very dangerous weapon when youre hitting it like that.Its a pretty long course for a normal length hitter with a lot of 460-yard holes and a lot of difficult shots indeed, so to be going in with a nine-iron when the rest of the field is going in with the six gives you a big advantage.With as much golf as he has played at the quality he has performed, Jordan Spieth was always going to have tournament where he was just off. From his driver to his putter, everything just wasnt right and around a course with the quality of Riviera, theres always the potential of shooting something unexpected. McIlroy finished nine strokes adrift of Bubba Watson at Riviera We can say the same for Rory McIlroy in the final round, particularly with the putting which is obviously quite a concern. If theres a weakness in his game then its the consistency in his putting and its a little frustrating for him to get in a position and not close out the deal.As one of the worlds top three players you would have expected him to, but I think a lot it was just down to rustiness. Hes now starting to get ready for Augusta and starting to have a more regular playing schedule, so Im sure well see him do a lot better the next time hes in that position and probably win the tournament.When you start back in a different continent on a different tour it takes a little while to get everything fine-tuned for that last round, so I think thats all part of Rorys poor finish and I think hes going to be just fine. Hes familiar with all of those courses hes playing (on the Florida Swing) and I expect to see something special from McIlroy. Gary Christian Special performanceI sure weve already seen the round of the year in Brandt Snedeker at the Farmers Insurance Open. I cant see anything approaching that. For him to score that low in those conditions on that course was incredible.It was basically an unplayable golf course. When the best players in the world were in action and the average score was almost 80, it just goes to show there was something a little bit special about that 69.On possibly the hardest course on the PGA Tour where the rough was a thick as it was and the green as quick as they were, just keeping it anywhere near 76 or 77 would have been an achievement. Brandt Snedeker was the only player to shoot under par during the final round We know how brutally hard it can be playing links courses in Britain with the wind coming up, so I think Greg Owen described conditions in California quite nicely before the final round as having the potential for carnage.Snedekers achievements were amazing, but it was impressive to watch KJ Choi and Jimmy Walker try to chase him down. It was good to see they still had difficult conditions on the Monday and at least had a chance down the last few holes.Fowlers frustrationYou can frame the Phoenix Open as a tournament Rickie Fowler threw away, but you can also frame it as one where he holed countless putts to stay in contention. It just happens that Hideki Matsuyama was equal to him and hit more good shots, as Rickie hit one poor one to miss out. Fowler is a four-time winner over the past 12 months Fowler was clearly crushed in the press conference afterwards, as hes now in that position in golf where if he gets into a play-offf then he expects to win. Mike Bibby Jersey. He expects to be a better player than the guy hes going to be playing against, but it wasnt a shock that Matsuyama was able to hold him off.Weve got to realise that Matsuyama is one of those players that has the total game, so we shouldnt be surprised to see him bouncing around the worlds top five or six in two or three years time.He may have kept hitting the shots he wanted to and almost always pulled them off, but Fowler will certainly be kicking himself for finding the lake at 17. Saying that, hell also look back at the quality of drives at the 18th and feel his game is going from strength to strength. Butch Harmon takes Tim Barter through the changes hes made to Rickie Fowlers game, which Harmon believes will make him a great. It seems like his focus, driving and long game all get better when the pressure is on. Rickie used to have the tendency to spray a little bit with his driver under pressure, but thats now gone. His driving is now an incredible weapon.Maybe his next thing to work on is how he can hold and extend a lead, much like he did in Abu Dhabi. We saw his ability to chase down leads last year and come from behind, but we need to see him control things from the start a few more times. Some people make it look easy like Spieth and McIlroy, but there are very few who can do that on a consistent basis.Blast from the pastFor me, the West Coast Swing highlight was Vaughn Taylors victory at Pebble Beach. The feel-good factor of the whole story was just tremendous. Vaughn Taylor secured his first victory since 2005 Taylor had such a solid career, playing in the Ryder Cup and being a multiple PGA Tour winner, but saw his career go off the rails and was barely getting in to Web.com Tour events. Thats the great thing though when youre a PGA Tour player; even if you havent made a cut for years youre still good enough for it to be your week.He pulled it all together brilliantly and more than anything handled the emotions and the chance to win a tournament. As someone who would certainly be considered a journeyman, the feeling of watching a player like him take on the big boys and prevail was very much a heart-warming story.Exciting times aheadMcIlroy now has a busy schedule, but hes full of energy and more importantly needs to get a win under his belt. Regaining the that he has the ability to close out a win is important to him, so obviously the more tournaments hes in the better the chance of him doing that. McIlroy is looking for his first win of 2016 At least there isnt a huge amount of travel with it all being based in Florida, so there are no worries about jet-lag and he can just turn up on the Tuesday night and play in the following days Pro-Am. Hes familiar with all of the courses he will be playing and I expect to see something special from McIlroy.I think people, especially in the second half of last year, were talking about Jason Day, while the first part of 2015 was all about Jordan Spieth. With McIlroys injury and him not winning as much as he would like, I think theres a little part of him that will want to prove theres a stubborn fella from Northern Ireland who is still quite good as well.When Rory gets the bit between his teeth and is a man on a mission, well see some very impressive stuff from him.

    There is a glimmer of hope for both Sunderland and Hull City in their battle to avoid relegation. Mitchell Trubisky Womens Jersey .The struggling sides meet at the Stadium of Light on Saturday in a match that already feels like it could be pivotal in deciding the make-up of the Premier Leagues bottom three come May.But there is reason for optimism at both clubs.Hull (3-1-7) ended a run of eight games without a league win when they eked out a 2-1 victory over Southampton in their final match before the recent international break.Sunderland (1-2-8), meanwhile, recorded their first win of a tricky campaign to-date under new manager David Moyes in their last outing, beating Bournemouth 2-1 on Nov. 5.However, despite those results, both clubs remain in the relegation zone, and Hull defender Curtis Davies admits that these sides are yet to reach a turning point.Sunderland had a great win against Bournemouth before the break and we know that theyll have rolled their sleeves up and be up for a fight, Davies said. Theyll probably see the game on Saturday as a chance to get kick-started, but we dont want to be their catalyst for that. We want to be the ones who kick on and push ourselves on in the table.Were ready for a big period in the season. We know we let ourselves down during the run of games after the last break up to the Southampton fixture. We have to take the momentum and confidence from that win forward with us now.Sunderland will also be looking to pick up some momentum after a less than ideal life to start under the management of much-maligned Moyes.The Scot has struggled to gel a cohesive unit at Sunderland, but he introduced one or two intriguing young prospects. One of whom -- American Lynden Gooch -- has spoken of his admiration for the coachs style.Results havent gone the way wed hoped, but the manager has put a lot of belief into us and we still feel that, little by little, were improving, gradually moving in the right direction, Gooch said.The manager wants us to keep the ball, pass it and play good football and thats my game. Thats how Ive been taught to play all the way through the academy and its helping me now. I feel that, under David Moyes, I can keep progressing.Gooch may be in contention to start against Hull, particularly given the clubs fitness concerns over Jack Rodwell, Jan Kirchhoff and Lee Cattermole. Fabio Borini, Paddy McNair and Victor Anichebe are also injury doubts for Saturdays game.Hull are missing Andy Robertson, Alex Bruce and long-term absentees Will Keane and Moses Odubajo, while striker Abel Hernandez remains a couple of weeks away from a return. Eddie Jackson Womens Jersey .

Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews. Jonathan Drouin also scored and had three assists while Zachary Fucale made 17 saves for the Mooseheads (16-8-0), who led 6-1 after two periods. Goalkeeper Hope Solo says she believes the U.S. Soccer Federation gave her a six-month suspension and terminated her contract as retaliation for her stance on equal pay.Solos remarks, made last week after she was notified of her suspension, were aired for the first time Friday in the final episode of the documentary series Keeping Score. The series follows Solo and fellow U.S. womens national team players Megan Rapinoe and Crystal Dunn before, during and after the Rio Olympics.?I feel like Im being pushed out, because it cant be based off performance, my health, she says in the episode. It cant be based off anything but they dont like me ... because they know Ive been fighting so hard for equal pay.Theyre going to use my comments as an excuse to get rid of me forever so that they dont have to deal with such a strong voice and opposition to field conditions and playing conditions and pay. I think Im just a thorn in their side, and its time for them to cut their losses.Solo was suspended Aug. 24 for what U.S. Soccer called conduct that is counter to the organizations principless, after she made critical remarks about the Sweden team following a U. Adam Shaheen Jersey. .S. loss at the Rio Olympics. Among her comments, Solo called the Sweden team a bunch of cowards.U.S. Soccer said the suspension also took into consideration past incidents involving Solo.Solo was among five members of the USWNT that filed a wage-discrimination action against U.S. Soccer in April. Among its claims, the filing said the womens team was being paid about a quarter of what the men earn despite generating nearly $20 million more revenue last year.Rapinoe, who also appears in the documentarys final episode, said she believes Solos suspension might be legal strategy by U.S. Soccer.As a member of the team and of the CBA group and of the PA [players association], Im pretty unhappy with a sort of arbitrary six-month suspension for calling someone a coward, Rapinoe says in the final episode. I think that theres probably some legal strategy going on with it all. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

    BARCELONA, Spain -- Pep Guardiola, the managerial mastermind who led Barcelona to 14 of 19 possible titles in four seasons, is returning to Camp Nou. NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap .This time he will be at the helm of Manchester City as he faces his boyhood club in the Champions League on Wednesday.But how does the best of the teams Guardiola coached from 2008-2012 stack up against the current Barcelona side?Here is a comparison of Barcelonas current players with those led by Guardiola in 2008-09, the team that started the clubs winning era by becoming the first Spanish club to win the Champions League, Spanish league and Copa del Rey in the same season.Barcelona repeated that rare feat of winning the treble of titles two seasons ago under present coach Luis Enrique.---FORWARDSMessi/Etoo/Henry (2008-09) vs. Messi/Suarez/Neymar (now)A budding star at 21 years old, Lionel Messi fully blossomed under Guardiola.The Argentina star won his first of a record five Ballon dOr awards in 2009, after having scored important goals such as his double in a historic 6-2 win at Real Madrid and the second goal in a 2-0 win to beat Manchester United in the Champions League final.Guardiola got one more superb season from striker Samuel Etoo, and squeezed out some of the last vintage goals that Thierry Henry had to offer.Hard to top that, right?Just look at Messis present partners in attack.With Messi moving away from a pure scorer to becoming both scorer and playmaker, Luis Suarez and Neymar have proven to be perfect fits up front. Suarez is the voracious goal-taker that Messi needed to focus on orchestrating, while Neymars dribbling skills and speed are almost unstoppable. The trio broke scoring records in each of the last two seasons.ADVANTAGE: Luis Enriques current attack.---MIDFIELDXavi/Toure/Iniesta (2008-09) vs. Rakitic/Busquets/Iniesta (now)Both teams enjoy the devilry of Andres Iniesta, but the 2008-09 side had both Yaya Toure and an upstart Sergio Busquets sharing time in front of the defense, as opposed to the current teams reliance on Busquets as a holding midfielder.The major difference, however, is the downgrade from Xavi Hernandez to Ivan Rakitic.Rakitic is more athletic and a better tackler than Xavi, but that cannot trump Xavis vision, poise and control of the match. The World Cup winner was Guardiolas on-pitch general of a possession-based passing attack that bewildered opponents.In other words, its a no-brainer.ADVANTAGE: Guardiolas 2008-09 midfield.---DEFENSEDani Alves/Puyol/Pique/Abidal (2008-09) vs. Roberto/Pique/Mascherano/Alba (now)Always at the service of Messi, Xavi and Iniesta, Barcelonas defense under Guardiola was easy to overlook.But that 2008-09 team enjoyed Dani Alves and Eric Adibal in their prime, a fully fit Carles Puyol before he was diminished by injuries, and a Gerard Pique hungry to come into his own.Pique now anchors a back line that is under transition.Jordi Alba offers blistering pace on the left flank, but its other two positions are in flux.Sergi Roberto, a converted midfielder, has impressed as Dani Alves replacement so far, while the other central defender position is in dispute between an aging Javier Mascherano and newcomer Samuel Umtiti.ADVANTAGE: Guardiolas 2008-09 defense.---GOALKEEPER: Valdes (2008-09) vs. Ter Stegen (now)Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has just inherited the full-time goalkeeping responsibilities from Claudio Bravo. Despite his passing skills and ability to make spectacular saves, the German needs to improve his decision making to reach the level of Victor Valdes from 2008-09.ADVANTAGE: Guardiolas 2008-09 goalkeeper.---CONCLUSION:Even though this Barcelona side should be favored over City, it has a way to go to equal the overall excellence of Guardiolas first Barcelona squad. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China .

    For almost as long as she can remember, Callie duPerier Apffel was bouncing from rodeo to rodeo across the U. Zach Collins Swingman Jersey .S. and Canada, chasing a dream. DuPerier Apffel, 23, grew up on trail horses and began barrel racing when she was 13. For her, riding and racing fit like boots and jeans -- despite the fact shes allergic to both horses and hay and has to take medication because of it.I probably went to thousands of races as kid, she says. I cant even count how many times Ive gone to a barrel race or how many times Ive ridden around barrels.From the moment she was introduced, she was hooked. I love horses, so being able to do that on your horse, I thought it was really cool, she says. The adrenaline rush she felt was more intense than from any other sport.Racers go as fast as possible in a cloverleaf pattern through three barrels -- trying hard not to knock over a barrel (a five-second penalty). Races usually last between 13 and 20 seconds.DuPerier Apffel started a few years later than most girls but learned quickly. As a high school senior she won the Womens Professional Rodeo Association junior world title. After three years in college, she set her sights on one goal: to win the National Finals Rodeo world title.Trip duPerier has traveled the country with his daughter, helped her strategize before races and bought her the horses -- a wide variety -- that helped teach her to ride. He says Callie is humble and calm -- but shes also extremely competitive and athletic. She dont look it on the outside, but she and me both, we do not like to lose, he says, laughing.He recalls how she played volleyball, basketball, ran track and was a cheerleader at little Medina High School outside San Antonio. He says in one hurdles race, she fell down on the second-to-last hurdle, but got back up and won. At one point, when she injured her knee and couldnt run, she entered the shot put -- and made the state championship. She went out for basketball for the first time as a senior, scored a bunch of points and even pulled off a reverse layup without ever having practiced the shot.Everybody was saying, Where did she come up with that? Trip says.At the same time, she was competing in high school rodeo. With her dad in her corner, many weekends were a blur. There would be times when he would pick me up from school or pick me up from a volleyball tournament and Id sleep the whole way to the rodeo, and then hed wake me up and Id hop on and run.She was torn between playing college volleyball and going on the rodeo circuit after high school, but decided to play volleyball at Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas. The 5-foot-10 outside hitter did well -- she ranks No. 3 on the schools list for most points in a season -- but suffered a shoulder injury that prompted her to leave college and pursue rodeo after three seasons.Her quest became to qualify for National Finals Rodeo and win the world title. To do that, shed have to crisscross the country, entering rodeos here, there and everywhere to earn enough money to be among the top 15 earners invited to the annual NFR event in Las Vegas.Its a tough and expensive task, but Callie and Trip were committed to it. It meant long drives and plane rides, sometimes trailering two horses at a time (they hired a driver) so theyd have horses at different venues at the same time, and the support of shoers, veterinarians, other riders and the whole duPerier family. Callie might have to be in Oakdale, Utah, one night and St. Paul, Oregon, the next. A victory could be worth a few hundred dollars or several thousand. It was a marathon.Wed be like in Tupelo, Mississippi, and in 16 hours youve got to be at the southern tip of Florida, and youre driving 75, 80 the whole way and you step out of your trailer, you saddle your horse and theyre calling your name, Trip recalls.Her first full season of 2014 she competed in 85 events and finished 25th in earnings. But she was No. 3 among Womens Pro Rodeo Association rookies. In 2015, she entered 100 events and was No. 1 in money earned -- and qualified for Vegas.Going into the 10-round, three-day NFR competition, Callie and Trip had a plan: be consistent, dont hit barrels and keep advancing and winning money. She decided to focus on each race without thinking about cumulative times or earnings. I was like, Yeah, I can make 10 clean runs on [my horse] Dillon. And thank goodness it happened, she says.At the end of 10 runs, her aggregate time was 140.41 seconds, .34 less than the next rider. That gave her the average title for that competition and $67,269 in prize money, which vaulted her to the top of the season money list at $303,846. She had become world champion.I got to do a victory lap because I had won the average, but I had no idea that I had won the world, she says. So I did my victory lap and was waving and got off and they were talking to me and telling me congratulations, and I still thought Id just won the average. Then when I was about to do an interview, they said something about winning the world, and I was like, Wait, I won? ... I started crying and said, I have to tell my dad. Being a numbers guy, Trip already knew, even if she didnt. He also knew that the long run to a championship was both satisfying and expensive. I bet it cost us about 150 [thousand dollars] to make 300, he says.After winning that title last year, duPerier Apffel decided 2016 would be the perfect time to rein in the pro career. She had a wedding to plan in May and moved to Galveston, Texas, where her husband, Kaleb, operates a lumber yard. Instead of spending months on the road and galloping around barrels, shes organizing and decorating their home and hunting and fishing with Kaleb. For once, she has free time.She has competed in several events of the new Elite Rodeo Athletes (ERA) League of Rodeo Champions, even winning the first one in Oregon in April and taking second at the next stop in Idaho. Yet she admits shes not all-in the way she has been in the past. She has other priorities, like staying close to home and maybe starting a family. She has no desire to live out of a suitcase anymore. But its hard to keep a world champion barrel racer out of the saddle.When shes asked if rodeo -- perhaps on a smaller scale -- might always be a part of her life, she says yes. I dont plan on fully quitting, because its fun, she says. I love it. I like the rush of riding. Zach Collins Authentic Jersey .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed. Zach Collins Jersey . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.http://www.blazersteamofficial.com/Zach-Collins-Blazers-Jersey/ . -- Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No. LEXINGTON, Va. -- Julian Eleby scored 18 points, QJ Peterson added 17 and VMI beat Division III Southern Virginia 78-47 on Tuesday night.Eleby and Peterson hit four 3-pointers apiece and Peterson moved past Ramon Williams into ninth on VMIs career scoring list.Eleby hit three 3s and scored 11 points during an 18-2 run that made it 30-16 with 3:57 left in the first half and the Keydets (1-1) led by double figures the rest of the way.

    Meet your College Football Playoff wrecking crew. Adidas Robyn Regehr Jersey .These are the most talented teams that have fallen out of the playoff picture but still have the potential to ruin it for somebody else. Some have only one loss, most have two.Beware of all of them.The season isnt done yet, and neither are these teams:LSU (3-2) Spoiler alert: Nov. 5 vs. Alabama; Nov. 24 vs. Texas A&MStating the case: The Tigers have a newfound energy under interim coach Ed Orgeron, and it was evident in their 42-7 drubbing of Missouri. LSUs abundance of talent was on full display, even with Leonard Fournette sidelined with an ankle injury, as?Derrius Guices ability to break long runs electrified the crowd. Quarterback Danny Etling didnt turn the ball over, and that will be key for any upsets to happen in November. In spite of losses to Wisconsin and Auburn, LSU isnt out of the SEC race just yet. The more likely scenario, though, is tripping up one of the top two teams in November.FPI says: Alabama (59.4 percent chance of beating LSU) and Texas A&M (62.6 percent) are the only opponents remaining on the schedule that FPI does NOT favor the Tigers against.Oklahoma (2-2) Spoiler games: Nov. 12 vs. Baylor; Nov. 19 at West VirginiaStating the case: The Sooners can still win the Big 12. Repeat: OU can still win the Big 12. Losses to Houston and Ohio State were devastating to its playoff hopes, but Oklahoma still has a shot at the leagues two remaining undefeated teams. The win at TCU was monumental in terms of giving OU something to keep playing for. As long as they limit the turnovers and stay healthy, the Sooners have the ground game to either make a run of their own, or knock Baylor and WVU off their paths.FPI says: The Sooners are favored in each of their remaining games, with a 74.4 percent chance to beat Baylor, and 62.9 percent chance to win in Morgantown.Florida State (3-2) Spoiler games: Oct. 8 vs. Miami; Oct. 29 vs. ClemsonStating the case: The Noles look like theyve come unraveled, but nothing brings out the best in a team like an old-school, in-state rivalry. Under first-year coach Mark Richt, Miami has a legitimate shot at the ACCs Coastal Division, but its game against the Noles is the first in a key stretch that includes Coastal opponents UNC and Virginia Tech. Florida State also has a chance to ruin Clemsons quest for another undefeated season. Clemson will still win the Atlantic Division with a loss in Tallahassee, as long as it wins out, but a blemish on the record could impact Louisvilles hopes at sneaking in the committees top four.FPI says: The Noles are favored to win each of their remaining games, but its tight, with a 55.2 percent chance to beat Miami (essentially a toss-up) and a 51.6 percent chance to beat Clemson (even closer).Ole Miss (3-2)Spoiler games: Oct. 15 at Arkansas; Nov. 12 at Texas A&MStating the case: Ole Miss has looked better in defeat than some undefeated teams have looked in their wins. This is an interesting triangle of teams because anything can still happen in the SEC West. Arkansas lost to A&M, so it needs the Aggies to lose twice, but Ole Miss is good enough to help out, and the Aggies also still have to play Tennessee and Alabama. Ole Miss lost to Alabama, which will be tough to overcome, but the Rebels have a bye week to prepare for their trip to Arkansas. They also play Georgia Southern before heading to Texas A&M.FPI says: The Aggies are favored to beat Ole Miss, but FPI is giving the Rebels a 74.8 percent chance of winning at Arkansas.Louisville (4-1)Spoiler game: Nov. 17 at HoustonStating the case: The Cardinals need Clemson to lose twice to get back into the ACCs Atlantic Division race (an unlikely scenario), but they can still ruin a perfect season and shot at the top four for Houston. The Cougars have no margin for error because of their conference strength of schedule and need another win against a Power 5 opponent in addition to beating Oklahoma to impress the selection committee.FPI says: The Cardinals are favored in each of their remaining games, including a 69.3 percent chance of winning at Houston.Notre Dame (2-3)Spoiler games: Oct. 15 vs. Stanford; Oct. 29 vs. MiamiStating the case: The Irish ended a two-game losing streak on Saturday with a win at Syracuse, they have made defensive changes and have a quarterback in DeShone Kizer whos good enough to win enough games to qualify for at least a bowl game. Along the way, Notre Dame has a chance to stick a fork in Stanford for good and to humble Miami heading into November.FPI says: Both Stanford and Miami are projected to beat the Irish. Adidas Tyler Toffoli Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Adidas Marcel Dionne Jersey . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No.http://www.kingshockeypro.com/adidas+drew+doughty+kings+jersey . -- Ryan Getzlaf grabbed the three pucks wrapped in tape and held them up to his chest in the Anaheim Ducks dressing room for a celebration nine seasons in the making.

    SANDY, Utah -- A year from now, the mountains that loom beyond the eastern rim of Rio Tinto Stadium will look?the same as they do now.http://www.hockeyleafsnhl.com/authentic-bobby-baun-maple-leafs-jersey/ .The U.S. womens national team? Not so much.Close your eyes for even a second, and Allie Long is a defender.Take too long coming back from a halftime hot chocolate run and, what do you know, Lynn Williams has appeared in her first game and scored her first goal for the national team.If Wednesdays game against Switzerland was supposed to be a demonstration of change, it didnt disappoint. The 4-0 win wasnt conclusive in any particular respect. But it was definitely different and thus interesting.And frankly, fun.I think its great for the environment with the national team, said Morgan Brian, who in two years has gone from World Cup rookie to wise, old sage. It makes it way more competitive, like Jills been saying. Its only going to push us to get that much better for the next three years.If U.S. coach Jill Ellis wants competition as the cycle begins for the 2019 World Cup and 2020 Olympics, Williams and Andi Sullivan highlighted the best-case scenario of what that looks like. Five players debuted for the United States in front of 14,336 fans Wednesday. None fell on their faces. Williams excelled; she scored the games first goal just 49 seconds after entering as a substitute to begin the second half. And Sullivan succeeded in the middle?of good play.I thought they were fantastic, Ellis said. As much as they were allowed to express themselves, they also fit within the system. I was very impressed. Andis poise, her passing -- I think shes mature beyond her years, in terms of her first time in, and she looked like shes been doing it for a while. Lynn, obviously a great finish. Her work rate, penetration, back to pressure -- shes pretty multi-dimensional.Just over a week ago, Williams capped a breakthrough professional season with the Western New York Flash by scoring a late equalizer in the dying seconds of overtime in the NWSL final. She and the Flash went on to claim the title in penalty kicks in Houston, and then after a quick stop back in Buffalo, she was off to Utah. On Wednesday, she?raced in on goal in the opening minute of the half. Williams slotted the ball into the net; she was?calm enough to take one final touch that opened up the shooting angle to go back across the goalkeeper.When they first told us we were going in, some nerves come over your body, Williams said. But Carli [Lloyd] came up to me and said, Just connect your first pass and go from there. And then Sam [Mewis] came up to me and said, Lynn, you dont have to be anything that youre not.Technically, Williams first pass came after her first goal, but the message holds.The play Williams made to set in motion the third goal -- after Tobin Heath doubled the lead -- was in some ways more impressive than the goal. Williams sent a sublime pass to Kelley OHara in the right corner, and OHara set up Christen Press for an emphatic finish.Its more difficult to put together the highlight package for Sullivan, but she was no less impressive. A college junior, she played the No. 6 position with confidence beyond her years.Early in the game, she turned her back at midfield and was knocked off the ball by a Swiss player. Sullivan looked at the referee as if expecting a whistle but got nothing. Far from rattled, she went about her work, connecting passes and putting the teammates in front of her in good spaces. Ellis has said repeatedly that she still doesnt know Sullivans best position, and indeed, she has excelled as a No. 8 for Stanford this season. But a longtime holding midfielder, she looked mighty comfortable there Wednesday.I think she, Lindsey [Horan] and I played pretty well together, Brian said. I think we found seams and played off of each other. She was very composed and calm on the ball.And yes, if youre doing the math at home, that adds up to three midfielders in the center of the field. The biggest surprise before the game wasnt the names in the lineup. More jarring was the way the U.S. women lined up, placing midfielder Allie Long between Becky Sauerbrunn and Emily Sonnett in the last line of a 3-5-2 formation. Given that Ellis just released one center back from contract (Whitney Engen) and says she is looking to add to the position, it might seem a curious move to play three of them together, especially when one isnt a center back by trade.I think in our attacking weve been kind of rotating to get to that shape, Ellis said, pointing most recently to the game against the Netherlands last month. I said, You know what, its time for us to kind of, honestly, experiment and try new things. What I like about Allie is she has a profile; shes good in the air, shes a very good communicator. And her passing gives us the ability to play those penetrating balls and keep possession and build.Playing somewhat shorthanded and rather listlessly, Switzerland didnt do much on the offensive end, but the U.S. women had a couple of dicey moments after miscues. Still, there was no denying the amount of buildup play the United States was able to accumulate.We only have three in the back, which gets a little scary sometimes, Brian said. But we have some of the best defenders in the world, so its a pretty great formation for us. It gives us a lot of numbers centrally to be able to combine and play a good brand of soccer, which I think we enjoyed tonight.The first test to replicate the energy comes Sunday against the same Swiss team in Minnesota.The coaching staff and the veteran players have been super proactive about getting us up to speed and including us in this team, which is really special, Sullivan said. To be able to bring in a bunch of new players and still put on a performance like we did tonight, I think that says a lot about the leadership of this team.What does it mean? Who knows. It was one game in October, a long time from any game that matters. But if any conclusion can be drawn, it is that this will be interesting.http://www.hockeyleafsnhl.com/authentic-morgan-rielly-maple-leafs-jersey/ .

Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. http://www.hockeyleafsnhl.com/authentic-tie-domi-maple-leafs-jersey/ . The Islanders dealt Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens after less than a year on Long Island. Meanwhile, the Oilers dealt long-time sniper Ales hemsky to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a third-rounder in 2015. MINNEAPOLIS -- The transition in head coaches at Minnesota from Jerry Kill to Tracy Claeys has been subtle, save for a contrast in personality and size.Claeys had one big target for change, though. The offensive line needed to be restored as a power. Road graders was the label he used to describe the type of players desired up front.Jonah Pirsig and the rest of the returners received the message after their 6-7 season a year ago.Offensive linemen have just really bought into the fact that we need to be bigger and we need to be stronger to kind of change the culture, the senior right tackle said, adding: Were only going to see good things from that.With junior college transfers Vincent Calhoun and Garrison Wright joining Pirsig in the starting five, the Gophers will be bigger. Obsessive work in the weight room over the winter and spring has drawn rave reviews, so the group is stronger. Will it be better?Theres no question that theyve made a lot of progress, Claeys said.In 2015, the Gophers were second-to-last in the Big Ten in scoring, third-to-last in yards and fourth-to-last in rushing. Claeys fired offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Matt Limegrover, picking Jay Johnson and Bart Miller as dual replacements. The five up front, of course, will go a long way toward senior quarterback Mitch Leidners success.I know theyve outworked everybody in the entire country, as far as that goes, Leidner said. They straight grind.Here are some other key angles to follow for the Gophers:LEIDNERS HELPERSWith Shannon Brooks hobbled by a foot injury, Rodney Smith will take the lead at running back following a promising freshman year for both of them. Senior Drew Wolitarsky is the only proven wide receiver. Tight end Brandon Lingen, named a captain as a junior, will likely be Leidners go-to guy.Its been an incredible thing to try to help lead this team in maybe some different capacities than I wouldve before, Lingen said.SECONDARY SCRUTINYSpeedster Jalen Myrick, who was second on the team laast season with three interceptions, will lead an inexperienced collection of cornerbacks with Briean Boddy-Calhoun and Eric Murray in NFL camps. http://www.hockeyleafsnhl.com/authentic-peter-holland-maple-leafs-jersey/. . Safety Damarius Travis has returned for a fifth year after a hamstring injury in the 2015 opener led to a medical redshirt. Myrick and Travis will be counted to maintain the secondary as a team strength.One bonus for the defensive backs is that Jay Sawvel, their fiery former position coach, has replaced Claeys as defensive coordinator.Hes not only yelling at us, Travis said. Hes yelling at everybody.SEASON OPENERThe Gophers host Oregon State Sept. 1, their now-annual Thursday night lid-lifter. After kicking off last season with a 23-17 loss to TCU, ranked then No. 2 in the nation, the Gophers ought to have a smoother start. The Beavers finished 2-10 last year, including 0-9 in Pac-12 play, and allowed an average of 37 points per game that ranked 113th out of 127 FBS teams.KEY GAMESThe Big Ten opener at Penn State on Oct. 1 will be a big test, as will the Nov. 12 trip to Nebraska. For the Gophers, though, rare are the games more important than border-state rivals Iowa (home, Oct. 8) and Wisconsin (road, Nov. 26). The Hawkeyes are the defending Big Ten West Division champions, and the Badgers have beaten Minnesota 12 straight years. The Gophers have lost 10 consecutive games at Wisconsin since winning there in 1994.PREDICTIONBy trading TCU for Oregon State on the nonconference slate and swapping East Division crossover opponents Michigan and Ohio State for Maryland and Rutgers, the Gophers are set up for a significant jump from their 5-7 regular-season finish that got them to a bowl game only because there werent enough eligible FBS teams to fill the spots. An 8-4 record with a 5-4 mark in the Big Ten, now on a nine-game schedule, is a safe bet for 2016. Nine or 10 wins wouldnt be unrealistic, either. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
