LAS VEGAS -- No. Asics Nimbus 17 Herre . 6 Maryland cruised to a 4-0 start by averaging 102 points and winning by an average of 49 points against inferior opponents.No. 23 Arizona State was supposed to provide the first true yardstick. Only the Terrapins press quickly turned it into another eye-popping rout.Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 20 points and Maryland led by as many as 32 points in the first half in an 83-42 victory over Arizona State on Friday.Its early, but I love the competitiveness, Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. It was a big test for us early to see where were at. Its a great sign.Brionna Jones added 14 points and 10 rebounds and Brianna Fraser scored 11 points for the Terrapins (5-0). They shot 55 percent from the field and used a stifling defense to race to leads of 10-0, 24-4 and 38-6 in the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout.Were growing. I dont think were at our peak at all, Walker-Kimbrough said. But you can see that were coming together.The Terrapins hit 13 of their first 17 shots while their press forced Arizona State into a 1-of-17 start from the field with nine turnovers.I love our length, our athleticism, Frese said. Were able to throw a lot of different looks. Thats something weve really been able to build upon as a team. I thought we really made them have to work for everything.Kaila Charles had 10 points and seven rebounds and freshman Destiny Slocum scored 10 points for Maryland.Relli Richardson scored 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting for the Sun Devils (2-2), They shot 28 percent from the field in their second straight loss.Early in the second quarter, Arizona State coach Charli Turner Thorne had taken more timeouts (2) than her team had field goals (1). She later picked up a technical foul in the Sun Devils most lopsided defeat since falling to Stanford 82-35 on Jan. 8, 2011.Weve obviously got really young guard play. But our front line has not really started the season strong, Turner Thorne said. Those are our veterans and those are the ones that need to carry the day for us.Senior Sophie Brunner, who was held to four points, committed six of Arizona States 20 turnovers.BIG PICTUREArizona State: The loss to Marquette a week ago doesnt look as bad after the Golden Eagles then won Tuesday at No. 22 Oregon State. But this one-sided defeat was a wakeup call for a team that starts two freshmen guards.Maryland: The Terrapins entered with a Sagarin schedule strength of 342 out of 349 Division I teams. But Arizona State proved no match either ahead of December nonconference showdowns against No. 4 Louisville and No. 2 UConn.POLL IMPLICATIONS:Arizona State: The rout could mean a Top 25 exit for a program that was a No. 2 seed in last seasons NCAA Tournament.Maryland: Voters had a tough time judging the Terrapins after playing four low-major teams. Could this dominant victory give them a chance to leapfrog No. 5 Baylor?UPSET COACHTurner Thorne spent a fourth quarter timeout yelling and stomping the floor as her players circled her in silence.I havent been in this situation for many years. You just have to get better, Turner Thorne said. When your senior gets scored on and just jogs down the floor, what does that say? Thats just not a winning mentality. Thats not what we do.UP NEXTArizona State faces St. Johns on Saturday to conclude the two-game, fixed-matchup event at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa.Maryland plays Washington State on Saturday to conclude its first trip to Las Vegas since the 1978-79 season.

He missed time in spring training with sore ribs and spent more than a month on the disabled list earlier this season with a strained right triceps.That is an ongoing discussion. He did have a slow start to the season with the rib injury, Tomczyk said. That could be a factor.

MILWAUKEE - Tommy Milone was a force at the plate and on the mound. Nike Free Rn Motion Flyknit Black . Milone took advantage of a rare chance to bat in an interleague road game, going 2 for 4 with an RBI and two runs scored in helping the surging Oakland Athletics to a 10-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night. The two-hit game by Milone was the first for an Oakland pitcher since June 2009. "Its fun. Its something different that we get to do a few times a year," he said. As manager Bob Melvin pointed out that Milone homered in his first major league at-bat. "When he takes batting practice he looks like a hitter," Melvin said. "Seems like every at-bat hes had this year, even in spring training, was a good at-bat." Coco Crisp had a leadoff homer among his four hits for the As, who have won four consecutive games and 15 of 17 to move a season-high 11 over .500 at 35-24. Milones two hits were the first by an Oakland pitcher this season and just the second and third over the past three years. Athletics catcher John Jaso praised Milones poise at the plate. "He swings the bat well. He came through with runners on," Jaso said. "His highlight was in the batters box but he pitched well, too." Milone (6-5) allowed five hits, struck out four and didnt issue a walk in seven strong innings. He retired his first eight batters before pitcher Marco Estrada blooped a two-out single in the third. "Hes pitched pretty well for us. Hes a consistent guy who does basically the same thing most times out," Melvin said. "He wants to make sure he doesnt walk guys or put guys on base when one home run could get them back in the game in a hurry." Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said Milone showed fine control. "He had real good command on the fastball and a great changeup," Roenicke said. "He mixed in his curveball when he needed to." The long ball sparked the As to a quick 2-0 lead. Crisp, who reached base five times in six plate appearances, got them started with his 10th career leadoff homer. Brandon Moss belted a solo shot with one out in the second to end an 0-for-11 slump. Oakland broke it open in the fifth when it sent 11 batters to the plate. A double by Jed Lowrie drove in a run. Josh Donaldson knocked in another with a single off reliever Burke Badenhop, who entered after Estrada left with an injury. Josh Reddick followed with an RBI single. Milone helped his own cause with a base hit that scored a run for a 6-0 margin. John Jaso added a single, his second of the inning, to drive in two more and push the Oakland lead to eight runs. The As finished with seven hits in the fifth, their most in an inning this season. The Brewers put an end to the shutout bid in the fifth when Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer. Estrada (4-3) lasted four innings, giving up five runs and nine hits. He struck out three and walked one. He departed with a left hamstring strain after giving up the run-scoring double to Lowrie in the fifth. The Brewers said Estrada is day to day. "To think that hes going to pitch again in five days, I dont know if he can do that," Roenicke said. The As tacked on two more runs in the seventh to close out the scoring. Weeks appeared to hit a solo homer off the top of the left-field wall with two outs in the seventh. Umpires initially signalled home run but after a review awarded Weeks a triple. He ended up stranded at third. Weeks entered the game hitting just .184 with three home runs. "It was nice to see him swinging it well. Hopefully that continues," Roenicke said. Hideki Okajima and Jesse Chavez combined to pitch two innings of scoreless relief for Oakland. NOTES: The Brewers made a flurry of roster moves before the game. They acquired 3B Juan Francisco from Atlanta for minor league pitcher Thomas Keeling. INF Scooter Gennett was recalled from Triple-A Nashville. INF Alex Gonzalez was released and pitcher Mike Fiers was optioned to Nashville. Gennett made his major league debut as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. ... The game marked the first meeting between the Brewers and As since a three-game series at Oakland in June 2002. It was the first meeting in Milwaukee since August 1997 when the Brewers were in the American League and played at County Stadium prior to their move to Miller Park. ... The Brewers had won 23 of their last 27 home games against the As. ... Estrada threw 86 pitches. Balenciaga Speed Trainer Red .

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks try to burst the Oilers bubble -- and put some air back in their own -- when they host Edmonton on Friday night.The Oilers (6-1-0) are off to their best start to a National Hockey League season since 1985-86, when they won their first five games, and are riding a four-game win streak. On the other hand, the Canucks (4-2-1), are reeling from three straight losses after starting the campaign with four consecutive victories -- a feat that they had not matched since 1992-93.Clearly the Oilers, with sophomore sensation Connor McDavid, 19, leading the way offensively and as captain, have developed a new attitude after missing the playoffs for 10 straight seasons.I think (players) are believing now in their game and, thus, feeling more confident about it, Oilers coach Todd McLellan told reporters in Edmonton this week. Its each individual showing up with his toolkit and being ready to work, and thats where the confidence comes from, where the swagger, the wins come from. They dont just happen by accident. If you keep doing that, your belief system goes up and you believe you can come from behind and play with leads, and that is what we are working toward.The Oilers displayed some of their new belief Tuesday night as they broke open a tight game in the third period and thumped the Washington Capitals -- a team expected to contend for the Stanley Cup again this season -- 5-1 in Edmonton. The strong start is a good omen because history has shown that games lost at the beginning of the regular season can spell a teams downfall at the end. Now, the Oilers want to continue riding the winning wave.We have a lot of work to do but this start is huge for us, said winger Benoit Pouliot, who is in his third season with the Oilers. The last couple of years, we havent had great starts, and its tough to climb back. Now we just have to keep this going.Meanwhile, the Canucks, who were blanked 3-0 at home Tuesday by Ottawa, are looking to end a habit of slow starts. Despite the success in their first four games, the Canucks are struggling because of a lack of scoring. Averaging two goals per game, they have constantly been forced to try and play catch-up.Accordingly, the Canucks do not want to fall behind too early against McDavid and the rest of the potentially explosive Oilers. Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens Sale. .Thats a team we have to play tight against, Vancouver captain Henrik Sedin said. We know the speed they have. When they are up, they are going to keep coming at you. Its very important to get the first goal against those guys. It could open up a lot of room for us.Ultimately, the game could prove to be a depth test for both clubs. Although McDavid is in early contention for a league scoring title with four goals and seven assists, Edmonton has also been able to count on the likes of fellow forwards Leon Draisaitl, Jordan Eberle, Milan Lucic, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Pouliot.But the Canucks are searching for offensive consistency as highly touted free-agent signing Loui Eriksson continues to struggle. Eriksson, who signed a six-year deal worth $36 million, has yet to score a goal while playing wing on the top line with Henrik and Daniel Sedin -- and elsewhere at times, although he has four assists.In addition, a number of holdovers have been slow off the mark, and Vancouver is starting to run into some injury woes with veteran winger Alex Burrows sidelined with an undisclosed lower-body issue and defenseman Chris Tanev out with an ankle problem.The Canucks promoted winger Mike Zalewski from their AHL farm team in Utica, N.Y., on Thursday. But Zalewski, who has only one assist in five games with Utica, is not slated to play against the Oilers.He figures as a bottom-six forward who can also kill penalties, but lacks the offensive firepower that the Canucks need.Second-year winger Jake Virtanen, 19, is someone who could provide a spark, but has been used sparingly. Virtanen expressed some frustration this week about his intermittent activity, but has done little to suggest that he deserves more playing time. Coach Willie Desjardins is opposed to using him on the fourth line -- the only place where he might fit regularly at this point -- and wants to put him in situations where he can produce.However, Virtanen might not have to wait long for more action if the Canucks fail to put air back in their bubble soon.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Nike Air Max Elite 2018 .J. -- Kevin De Bryune and Andre Schuerlle scored as Chelsea beat AC Milan 2-0 on Sunday to advance to the championship game of the International Champions Cup. Chelsea will face Real Madrid in the title match at Miami on Wednesday night. AC Milan will take on the Los Angeles Galaxy in the third-place game earlier the same night. De Bryune put Chelsea on the scoreboard in the 29th minute as he took a pass from Eden Hazard, hit the crossbar and then knocked the rebound across inside the left post. Schurlle secured the win in the second minute of stoppage time, taking a pass from Victor Mosses from the left side and sending the ball inside the right post.

He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss. http://www.nikevapormaxwholesale.com/air-max-97-silver-bullet-for-sale.html . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. MANHATTAN, Kan. -- The only thing consistent about Kansas State this season has been Bill Snyders postgame message.One that laments the Wildcats inconsistency.Their yin-and-yang was on display once more on Saturday in a 24-21 victory over Texas. Kansas State was dominant on both sides of the ball in the first half, then committed a series of mistakes in the second half that provided the Longhorns an opportunity to make it a game.We played fine in the first half, Snyder said grimly, and laid eggs in the second half.Indeed, the Wildcats (4-3, 2-2 Big 12) raced to a 21-7 lead at the break, and added a field goal in the third quarter to take control. But three turnovers, including one by Charles Jones at the goal line, allowed the Longhorns (3-4, 1-3) to get within 24-14 later in the quarter.The Longhorns couldnt overcome their own multitude of mistakes, though. Among them was a badly missed 35-yard field-goal attempt with just over four minutes remaining that would have made it 24-17.The Longhorns eventually got the ball back, but then squandered precious time with running plays before Shane Buechele hit Dorian Leonard from 6 yards out with 46 seconds left. Then they knocked the ensuing onside kick out of bounds, preventing them from having a chance to kick a tying field goal.Its tough when you lose a game and we had the opportunity to go win it, said Texas coach Charlie Strong, whose hot seat only got hotter with his third loss in four games. We needed big stops in the first half and we didnt make them. We were able to bounce back there in the second half -- its just that weve got to learn from it, got to move on. ... Weve just got to get ourselves back together.Jesse Ertz led the Wildcats with 171 yards passing and a touchdown and 78 yards rushing and two more scores. He also teamed with running backs Charles Jones, Justin Silmon and Alex Barnes to pile up 240 yards on the ground against a Texas defense that began loading up the box to stop them.The result was the Wildcats fifth straight home win over Texas. Air Max 97 Silver Bullet For Sale. I was kind of upset after last week, Kansas State linebacker Elijah Lee said of a lopsided loss to Oklahoma. Thats something you have to carry with you: The season isnt over. You have to take it game by game.Buechele finished with 222 yards and two scores passing, but a big chunk of that came on an 80-yard pass to Devin Duvernay in the second quarter. Otherwise, Buechele was sacked twice and corralled most of the day.DOnta Foreman, the nations second-leading rusher, carried 24 times for 124 yards. But he was repeatedly stuffed in key situations, a big reason why Texas was 3 of 11 on third down and 0 for 2 on fourth.Beats the tar out of a loss, Snyder said in summary, but its not so much the win as how. If we play and prepare well start to finish, wed be better. Thats why Im not jumping up and down right now.THE TAKEAWAYTEXAS: After eclipsing 500 yards total offense for the fourth time this season a week ago against Iowa State, the Longhorns struggled to move the ball. They managed a season-low 344 yards on Saturday.KANSAS STATE: The fumble by Jones at the goal line summed up the Wildcats inconsistency issues. The senior running back otherwise had a solid day but, as Snyder pointed out, Were all taught when were 5 years old to put two hands on the football.PENALTY PROBLEMSTexas was penalized 10 times for 72 yards, drawing four flags on the Wildcats scoring march to open the game. Kansas State countered with eight penalties for 75 yards. It made for a busy game for an officiating crew that also spent a whole lot of time reviewing plays.SEEING REDThe Wildcats had scored on 56 straight trips inside the red zone before Jones fumbled in the third quarter. The last time they failed to score was Oct. 17, 2015, in a shutout loss to the Sooners.UP NEXTTEXAS: Ninth-ranked Baylor visits Austin on Saturday.KANSAS STATE: A trip to Iowa State awaits Saturday.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Puma Suede Heart Satin Black .Va. -- Veteran receiver Hakeem Nicks is signing a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints on the eve of their first training camp practice, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.Nicks worked out for the Saints last season and again in May, but they initially opted to sign veteran receiver Vincent Brown, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis declined to confirm the signing. Nicks, though, posted the Saints logo on his Twitter feed.Nicks, 28, now replaces Brown as the oldest receiver on the Saints roster by far. After releasing veteran Marques Colston this offseason, New Orleans doesnt have another receiver older than 24.Because of that lack of experience, Nicks should have a decent shot at cracking the roster along with projected starters Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead and second-round draft pick Michael Thomas.Nicks (6-foot-1, 208 pounds) had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the New York Giants in 2010 and 2011 and helped them win a Super Bowl. The former first-round draft pick has a total of 5,081 receiving yards and 31 touchdowns in seven NFL seasons, but his career has stalled in recent years.Nicks spent one season in Indianapolis in 2014, then got cut by the Tennessee Titans last summer before returning to the Giants for the final six games of the 2015 season.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Gio Gonzalezs latest quality start wasnt enough for the Washington Nationals.Gonzalez got his fourth quality start in five games, but Matt Cain threw five hitless innings for his 100th career victory and the San Francisco Giants held Washington to three hits in a 3-1 win Sunday.Gonzalez (6-9) allowed two runs (one earned), six hits and two walks in six innings.Hes throwing strikes, not walking people and getting out of jams when he gets in them, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said.Gio should have fared better than that. His last two starts have been outstanding. We didnt give him much support.The Nationals gave him no support early on.Cain (3-6) struck out five and walked four on 93 pitches. He handed off to George Kontos, who allowed a leadoff single to Bryce Harper in the sixth. Anthony Rendon doubled in Harper two batters later.The Nationals committed two errors, and the winning run scored on Rendons throwing error in the fifth.Theyve been good all year long, Gonzalez said. Its a situation you turn the page and move forward. Just a couple bumps on the road.These guys are the best infield the league, the outfield, too. There are a lot of Gold Gloves out there.Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth inning for his 24th save. Casilla was among five Giants relievers who combined to allow one run on three hits over four innings.NL West-leading San Francisco has won two straight since losing 11 of 13 following the All-Star break.Cain became the sixth Giants pitcher to reach 100 wins since the franchise came to San Francisco in 1958. Juan Marichal (238), Gaylord Perry (134), Tim Lincecum (108), Kirk Rueter (105) and Mike McCormick (104) are the others.That hit me after the game was over, Cain said. I didnt think it was going to be that big of a deal but for it to take three years it feels good, it definitely feells good. Puma Slides Womens. Especially with the way it worked out today, we got to use everybody to be a part of it. It was definitely a win that we all needed very much.The Giants won despite troubles hitting with runners in scoring position that have dogged them throughout the second half.They were 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position Sunday and are batting .139 (19 for 137) in that department since the All-Star break.They were hitless in their first 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position Sunday until Angel Pagan singled in Denard Span from third with one out in the bottom of the seventh to give San Francisco a 3-1 lead.Left fielder Mac Williamson left with an injury in the sixth. He dropped Chris Heiseys flyball on the play but fired to third baseman Conor Gillaspie to force out Rendon. Williamson is day-to-day with a jammed shoulder, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.RESPECTING THE GAMEAfter getting hit in the arm by a 94-mph Casilla fastball leading off the ninth, Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman didnt take kindly to the resounding boos he got from Giants fans, implying that he was trying to sell home plate umpire Jim Joyce on the call. Bochy challenged the call, but it was upheld.I was fired up when I got hit. Thats not something I normally do, Zimmerman said. The one thing I never do is fake something like that.

NORMAN, Okla. Nike Air Max 97 España . -- With his best receiver sidelined, Baker Mayfield still boosted his Heisman Trophy resume.Mayfield passed for 288 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 7 Oklahoma defeated No. 11 Oklahoma State 38-20 on Saturday in a matchup that decided the Big 12 champion and likely guaranteed the Sooners a trip to the Sugar Bowl.Mayfield performed well throughout, despite finishing the game without Biletnikoff Award finalist Dede Westbrook. The speedster caught four passes for 111 yards before being knocked out of the game in the second quarter on a crushing hit by Oklahoma State safety Jordan Sterns. Mayfield threw two touchdown passes after Westbrook left the game, and the offense didnt miss a beat, finishing with 629 yards.He was just fantastic, he was just exactly what he needed to be, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said of Mayfield. He gave our guys chances to make plays, he handled the ball great himself, had a few key runs for us, threw the ball. The guys really, really talented. To be able to do what he did, theres not many guys who could do what he did today.Mayfield finished fourth in the Heisman balloting last year, but he didnt get an invitation to New York for the ceremony. He wants to go this year, and he wants Westbrook to get an invitation, too.After the game, Mayfield wore a pin from the school with both his and Westbrooks names on it. Mayfield crossed out his own name with a marker to make sure Westbrook wasnt forgotten.Dede is the best player in the country, Mayfield said. I still want to hold Dedes hand all the way to New York.Mayfield should be a Heisman front-runner heading into next season, too. He said after the game that he plans to return for his senior season.Coming back, be here for another year, he said. Opportunity for a three-peat (Big 12). The ultimate goal is why I came here -- to win a national title.Samaje Perine rambled for 239 yards on a career-high 37 carries and Joe Mixon caught a touchdown pass and busted a 79-yard touchdown run for the Sooners (10-2, 9-0 Big 12, No. 9 College Football Playoff).It was the second straight time the teams met in the regular-season finale to determine the conference champion. Oklahoma beat the Cowboys 58-23 last season.In this years showdown, Mason Rudolph completed just 11 of 25 passes for 186 yards for Oklahoma State (9-3, 7-2, No. 10 CFP). His top target for the season, James Washington, caught just two passes for 50 yards on eight targets.Just a rough day, Rudolph said. Ill take all the responsibility for the lack of production, especially in the second half. Obviously, it needed to be better.THE TAKEAWAYOKLAHOMA STATE: It was an especially bitter defeat for the Cowboys, who have become so close to turning the tide against their biggest rival. The Cowboys, who last won the Big 12 in 2011, fell to 2-10 against the Sooners under coach Mike Gundy. Even with Westbrook out and Perine being knocked out briefly after a helmet-to-helmet hit, the Cowboys couldnt keep the momentum.They made too many big plays, Sterns said. Thats a great football team with big playmakers.OKLAHOMA: The Sooners added a second straight win over a highly ranked opponent, but it likely wasnt enough to get them into the College Football playoff for the second straight year.Probably, realistically, more needed to happen last week to give ourselves a better opportunity, but thats past, Stoops said. Whatever theyre going to decide, theyll decide.POLL IMPLICATIONSOKLAHOMA STATE: Likely wont fall too far with a road loss against a Top 10 team , especially with so many other top teams playing each other.OKLAHOMA: Not much space to move up. The Sooners were already ahead of Colorado, which lost to Washington on Friday.UP NEXTOKLAHOMA STATE: Bowl game to be determined.OKLAHOMA: The Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2 unless the Sooners make the College Football Playoff.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/CliffBruntAP .

EnglandFive played and five won - you cannot ask for more than that, can you? The 2016 Six Nations may not have been a classic and I think all the teams were suffering from a bit of a World Cup hangover. But that does not take away from Englands Grand Slam efforts. Will Greenwood discusses Englands first Six Nations Grand Slam in 13 years With a few tweaks here and there, Eddie Jones has turned Englands fortunes around. They have a very competitive scrum and their lineout was superb.We saw Maro Itoje come to the fore and had glimpses of the future with Elliot Daly, too. George Kruis was superb as well and I think Dylan Hartley was an excellent captain.England head to Australia in the summer with a spring in their step. It wont be easy but with a few more tweaks here and there, England could well surprise the Wallabies.Wales Wales must play more attacking rugby in New Zealand, says Dewi Wales really need to adapt their game plan. I know they have been talking a lot about it but it just has not happened for them.I think it is a real shame that they have played in such a one-dimensional way given the quality of backs they have. My old nemesis Robert Jones says that something has to change because they are wasting so much talent out in the backs. Wales are off to New Zealand and if they go there with their Six Nations attitude they will be stopped and squashed. Dewi Morris Whether that is changing Rhys Priestland for Dan Biggar to play a more attacking game rather than a kicking game remains to be seen.Wales are off to New Zealand and if they go there with their Six Nations attitude they will be stopped and squashed. They are going to have to play some more exciting rugby.Wales have plenty of capabilities and they have the firepower but they just cant seem to bring it all together.Ireland CJ Stander has made an impressive start to his international career Ireland showed against Scotland what a good structure they have and what a good attacking side they are. They have had a few blips but Joe Schmidt is a very, very good coach and I still think he can get a lot more out of Ireland.We have seen some excellent players come to the fore like Jack McGrath and CJ Stander, who I thought was superb this tournament. The more they play the better they will grow.Ireland have a long injury list including Peter OMahony, Sean OBrien and Iain Henderson. Once they return there will be the depth and potential to grow this team.Scotland Stuart Hogg is world cllass, says Dewi They have individual talent but there is a real lack of collective togetherness. Nike Air Max 1 Mujer. They seem to be able to win more than their fair share of the ball but cant seem to make it count.Scotland showed some really great aspects to their game - they have a tremendous back row and I thought John Hardie really stuck his hand up.The Gray brothers were outstanding too and Stuart Hogg is one of those players who you just love to watch with ball in hand. There is not that many world class players in the northern hemisphere but Hogg is one of them. Six Nations review Englands Grand Slam success only the start, says Stuart Barnes Scotland also have two very good props in WP Nel and Alasdair Dickinson. They are off to Japan in the summer and I think that is a good tour for them to build some confidence. This is a squad that needs to get more time under their belt.Vern Cotter is an excellent coach and the more time he spends with them the better they will get.France Guy Noves has endured a difficult start to his reign as France head coach There is so much talent in France but they are in pieces at the moment. They played more rugby in the first half against England than they did all tournament.I love the Top 14 but it is killing French rugby. The clubs have more power than the federation and the players are getting flogged. You cant start a season in mid-August and finish it in mid-June and try to get your international players ready for Test matches.Asking if Guy Noves is the right or wrong man for the job is immaterial because no matter who takes over, the problem is the same - their hands are tied. A number of France internationals will be unavailable for their June tour of Argentina due to club commitments France need the clubs to give their international players time off and time together so that they can properly prepare for the Six Nations and tours.This seasons Top 14 final is on June 24 - France will already be on tour in Argentina with the first Test being played on June 18 and the second on June 25. Its a complete mess!Everyone loves to stick the knife into Rob Andrew but he was the main instigator in getting the RFU and the Premiership clubs to sit down and settle the dispute between club and country. England now have more time than ever with their players and you can see the result of that.Italy Sergio Parisse was again outstanding for Italy during a dire Six Nations campaign If Conor OShea is taking over then he has a heck of a job to do. I think if one person can do it then it is him. This campaign has been really difficult for them and they have suffered from a lot of injuries which has certainly hindered them.There has been a lot of talk about Italy deserving their place in the Six Nations, especially with the likes of Georgia and Romania improving on a yearly basis and desperate for a regular shot at the big boys.I think Italy need an injection of new coaching ideas and some new talent - they certainly do have some wonderful players but they lack depth.Sergio Parisse once again has been wonderful for them but how long can he keep going? I think the next few years will be crucial for their development.Do you agree with Dewi? Have your say by giving us your comments below if viewing on skysports.com.

1. Cheap Eagles Super Bowl Jerseys . Quick transformationIt is amazing to think we are discussing the Zurich Classic of New Orleans some five months before it is to be played. A tournament contested in the dead zone a few weeks after the Masters is suddenly a hot topic -- and for good reason. The tournament went outside the box and announced a team format starting in 2017, and already there is buzz and interest.Jason Day and Rickie Fowler will be among the 80 teams, as will Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose and silver medalist Henrik Stenson. Many other intriguing pairings are sure to follow, and its all because of a unique idea that is really not all that unique.There have been team events in the offseason for years, but mostly the unofficial variety. Not since the Walt Disney World Classic in the early 1980s has there been a PGA Tour tournament for teams that counts; prize money, FedEx points, World Ranking points are all in play.There is no Masters invitation because the winners will not receive a full point allocation of FedEx Cup points -- the winners will share first- and second-place points, so 400 apiece instead of 500 for the winner. Still, 400 points puts you well on your way to qualifying for the FedEx Cup playoffs, and those who make it to the Tour Championship qualify for the Masters.2. Added benefitWhat really makes the format change a hit is the implementation of the foursomes format, one that comes around only at the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup but will now be in play during the first and third rounds of a PGA Tour event. Best ball will be the second- and fourth-round format.Playing alternate shot can be uncomfortable, as players rarely ever practice or play it. And at the Ryder Cup, a bad hole is just that -- one hole. In stroke play, things could get ugly, making this all the more interesting. Best ball allows for some mistakes and also the ability to get on a roll.Such format changes cant be in play every week, otherwise the concept would not be unique. But the PGA Tour should strive to have a smattering of different events like this, especially at times of the year when golf is not going to get much attention.3. Wish listTiger Woods playing with anyone in this tournament would be seismic, but how about with Phil Mickelson as a partner? Put the memories of the 2004 Ryder Cup to bed and have at it. Just to be sure, use Phils Callaway golf ball during the alternate-shot portion.4. The Race to DubaiThe PGA Tours FedEx Cup playoffs have a lot of detractors -- and for good reason. The format is often cumbersome and difficult to follow, but the bottom line is that every player who makes it to the Tour Championship in Atlanta has a chance to win the overall trophy. It is tepidly modeled after U.S. team playoff structures.Whenever the argument is broached that the overall FedEx champion is not necessarily the true season champion -- this year comes to mind, as Rory McIlroy did not have as good of a year as Dustin Johnson -- all you need to do is default to the European Tours system.The Race to Dubai goes to a points system for its last three events known as the Final Series, but in essence its all about whoever wins the most money throughout the year. Only Henrik Stenson, Danny Willett and Alexander Noren have a realistic shot at the overall title, with McIlroy having a chance. McIlroy didnt even play the first two Final Series events in Turkey and South Africa.Perhaps that is why the Final Series is being scrapped in 2017 and replaced with the Rolex Series, seven events that are likely to increase in future years, all with a minimum $7 million purse. Included are the final three events, and there will still be a bonus pool for the top finishers in the Race to Dubai.McIlroy would need to win this weeks DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and Stenson finish worse than 45th in the 60-player field in order for McIlroy to capture the overall title; Noren can finish as low as second, with Stenson finishing outside the top eight and Willett outside of the top two.Willett can finish as low as fourth and claim the overall title provided Stenson is outside the top 30. Willett would capture the crown if he wins the tournament. Stenson also won the Race to Dubai in 2013, the year he claimed the FedEx title as well.5. Honoring our veteransBilly Hurley was among the many to call for remembering our veterans, and it is all the more appropriate as he is a former Naval officer. Hurley won the Quicken Loans National earlier this year, a tournament that has heavy military involvement.6. PGA Championship on the move?The crammed PGA Tour schedule in 2016 due to the Olympics begged for an overhaul of the schedule, one that did not occur. Instead, the only concession made was the PGA Championship moving up two weeks, making for just 11 days between the end of The Open and the PGA.That is unlikely to happen when the Olympics return to the schedule in 2020, and PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua is open to the idea of moving the PGA Championship to another time of year -- and maybe permanently.We are huge proponents of the Olympics, Bevacqua told Golf Channel last week at the PGAs annual meetings. We are all about the Olympics, but we also have to protect the PGA Championship, and we cant just bounce the PGA Championship around every four years. To truly make it work, to make it succeed and to make sure golf is in the Olympics for the next century, the whole schedule needs to be adjusted.This is nothing that hasnt been suggested all along, but Bevacqua appears intent on a shakeup that would put pressure on the PGA Tour to make some adjustments. Bevacqua told Golf Channel he would not be opposed to moving the PGA to May in 2020. If such a change occurs, there would be inevitable conjecture that it could be permanent. To make that happen, the tour would need to move the Players Championship back to March, where it had been played until a switch in 2007.All of this would allow for some space between The Open and the FedEx Cup playoffs, which in theory could be moved up to avoid football.It means plenty to sort through for new commissioner Jay Monahan, who has numerous aspects to consider here, television interests and sponsorship of the FedEx Cup chief among them.7. Spieth Down UnderFollowing a full six weeks away from golf after the Ryder Cup, Jordan Spieth is back at it again this week for the Australian Open, a tournament he won two years ago and was viewed as a springboard to his five-victory 2015 season that included two major championships.Unlike the past two years, the Australian Open is not the week prior to the Hero World Challenge, so Spieth will have the added benefit of a weeks rest between starts. Last year following the Presidents Cup in Korea, he went back and forth between the United States to China for the HSBC, to Sydney for the Australian Open and then to the Hero in the Bahamas. After that, it was off to Hawaii for the Tournament of Champions and then Abu Dhabi and Singapore.This time, it appears Spieth is going with the less-is-more approach. He skipped the HSBC, and so far there are no plans for an overseas trip early in the new year.As he told the media in Australia, he still believes his two-victory 2016 season was not as bad as it has often been portrayed.Everyone goes through peaks and valleys, he said. Ive still won twice and finished second in a major. If thats a valley, then its going to be a lot of fun when we get up to a peak. No offense, but you guys [media] have made me feel like its a valley.8. Open qualifyingThe Australian Open is the first of 15 tournaments that will serve as qualifiers for The Open at Royal Birkdale, up from 13. The top three finishers among the top 10 in the tournament who are not already qualified will earn a spot in The Open field. The new additions to the roster of qualifiers are the Singapore Open in January and the Ho Tram Players Championship in Vietnam in April. In total, there will be qualifying events in 10 countries with a total of 44 spots in a field of 156 at stake.On the PGA Tour, the Quicken Loans National and the Greenbrier Classic will each have four spots, with a final spot at the John Deere Classic, which concludes the Sunday prior to The Open.9. Hail, BernhardBernhard Langer didnt win the season-ending event on the Champions Tour, but he captured just about everything else, including the Charles Schwab Cup. In 21 starts, Langer had four victories, 18 top-10s and no finish worse than a tie for 13th. At age 58 (hes now 59), he contended at the Masters. Eagles Super Bowl Jerseys From China .

The answer to how ready India are to host a day-night Test will likely be found over the next few weeks as the Duleep Trophy, the tournament that opens Indias domestic season, will be played under lights. Jordan 11 Win Like 82 For Sale . The pink ball will be used for the first time in Indian first-class cricket during the tournament. Earlier this year the Cricket Association of Bengal hosted Indias maiden pink-ball match - the final of the Division 1 tournament, between Mohun Bagan and Bhowanipore. The balls were supplied by Kookaburra, the Australian cricket-goods manufacturer, who have been carrying out extensive research into making changes to the ball to ensure its suitability for Indian conditions. Brett Elliot, Kookaburras managing director, explains the challenges involved in making a ball that will aid pace and spin in Indian conditions.What was the feedback you received after the Kolkata match? The feedback was very positive. The players were happy with the balls and their performance. They felt the ball swung earlier on and didnt do much later on. That is reflective of what we also experienced with the pink ball. But the wear of the ball was very good. The players also felt the visibility of the ball was very good. This always will be a process of continual improvement. The process when you take the feedback of players and experts. You look at it and review it, and you continually try and refine the product at each stage.Going into the match at Eden Gardens, what were the things you were certain about? The biggest challenge is the variation of pitch and playing conditions around the world. And not just from one country to the next, but even so much as one ground to the next. Increasingly we are seeing that the preparation of pitches is becoming much more scientific and therefore we are in situations where the ball might perform perfectly in one set of conditions, and then we go to a ground where a pitch has been prepared where any grass and moisture has been removed. In such conditions, a coloured ball will always suffer more than a red ball.Therefore our biggest challenge is to overcome the variations in conditions. We can improve the wear-resistance characteristics of the coloured ball. But when you play on a less abrasive wicket, the ball does not wear enough. So our goal is trying to get that right balance when the ball deteriorates at the stages, the levels and the pace at which it should, and then trying to find the balance across all the varying pitch conditions.It is not just about the ball. The wicket can be completely dry but the square around the pitch could be really abrasive, and the players could think of throwing into the square to scuff the ball - that would be another factor that comes into play. So we have to understand what are the playing conditions that need to be created as a whole to ensure we get a fair and balanced match.Why did you insist that grass be left on the Eden pitch? There were three pitches - one was left out from the World T20, one from the IPL. They were both without any grass cover, very dry, and were in a repaired state. We could not use them. The third pitch had about 3mm across it, not on all areas, but in some. Now I understand that is probably a lot of grass in India, and that is probably considered to be no grass in some other countries. Because we did not know how the ball would perform on a pitch without any grass, we did not want to subject the ball to the worst possible scenario [abrasive surface] and then risk it not working, or the ball deteriorating too quickly and then creating negativity towards the situation, which would have been unfair.We subsequently have conducted trials in different environments and tested the ball on different surfaces to refine the product accordingly. I believe the National Cricket Academy has done trials to see how the pink ball performs. The groundsmen are learning about how to prepare conditions that would induce a good, competitive game and encourage all facets of the game from pace to spin.It is well known now that the pink ball swings easily at the start of the match, compared to the SG Test ball that is used predominantly in Indian domestic cricket. But one factor that goes against the Kookaburra is that movement off the pitch or in the air reduces quickly after the first hour or so. How do you factor that into the making of the pink ball? We are looking at making changes to the ball that would make it a little bit more suitable for spin bowling, a little bit more suitable for seam bowling, and the seam holds up a little bit longer. That is not hard for us to do, but what we dont want to do is make a radical change, and then all of a sudden change the characteristics and expectations in a game. We have to do these changes gradually and subtly and through a consultation process with the games statekeholders.Spinners have never enjoyed even the red Kookaburra, since the seam sinks in quite quickly. What has Kookaburra done to make the ball more conducive to spin bowling? You can change the construction of the core so that it is more conducive to spin bowling, by weighting the core more heavily in the middle. It has an effect like an ice skater on the rink: when she spins with her arms wide, she spins slowly, and as she brings her arms in, she accelerates. All she has done is bring her weight in, which has enabled her to spin faster. Its the same principle that applies with the Kookaburra centre versus Dukes, where we can vary it.The ball can be given a little bit more purchase by having a slightly heavier thread, a modification we are trialling . This would do two things: it would help protect the thread and limit the deterioration of the leather, and potentially give spin bowlers more purchase. Did you actually use a thicker thread to stitch the ball for the Kolkata match? Yes, we did. We can increase the bulk of the seam very easily, and it is a very simple process.Will the same be used for Duleep Trophy? The BCCI has been happy with the same thread that was used on the ball in the inaugural day-night Test in Adelaide. These balls have been used in practice and will be used in the Duleep Trophy.Its a constant evolution, though. Weve worked on some future modification options to the ball in the last few weeks that we will be showing the BCCI during the series. It may be that in future pink-ball matches those tweaks, along with player feedback from the Duleep Trophy, combine to create a slightly modified and improved ball.What about the four coats of lacquer that you have applied on the ball for the Kolkata match? Following some research and development trials we did in India, we did strengthen the finishes on the ball. So that has reduced the rate of deterioration of the ball. Those finishes effectively grab hold of the leather, and slow down the rate at which the ball wears and the leather is exposed. When that happens, it picks up the dirt, dust and muck from the surrounding conditions. As a consequence you get the discoloration, and that is when the visibility is affected. But that deterioration is also part of the game. So we have been adjusting how strong those finishes are to ensure we get a very even and controlled rate of deterioration.But does that also mean the ball might never lose its lacquer? Is there a way around it? If at 80 overs the ball still looks new then that is not good. What we dont want, though, is after ten overs we dont want the ball looking like it has been used for 80 overs. It is about that balance. So it might be two coats where it is a little bit stronger, and then two coats where it is softer again. And therefore what we create are layers of coating that are able to deteriorate at varying speeds. That is what we are exploring in our trials. Jordan 11 Retro Space Jam - Grade School Shoes .

Youve got to stay with it, youve got to battle, youve got to compete.Carolina is 2-4 in shootouts this season.(Shootout wins) are pretty rare for me, so that felt pretty good, said Ward, who took the loss on Friday. Theres only one way to get over what happens in the shootouts. Today I felt more relaxed and calm than I did last night. I just told the boys I was due.Stempniak said he was happy just to get the shootout off on the right foot for his team.I guess theres some strategy whether you shoot first or second, Stempniak said. Weve tried everything, it seems like. If you get the first goal and then get the save it definitely puts some pressure on the other team. We got two goals and some big saves from Cam. Its great to get the second point.Joakim Nordstromm had a first-period goal for Carolina, and Evander Kane tied it late in the third. Cheap Mens Air Jordan Retro 11 Oreo Black/White For Sale.
