    In the middle of last weekend’s Keeping Score blog entry by Gregg Drinnan, I found the following tidbit: “When the Kamloops Blazers gave goaltender Bolton Pouliot to the Portland Winterhawks the other day — call it an early Christmas present — it brought back memories of Jan. 19, 1983. That was the day the WHL’s Seattle Breakers traded forward Tom Martin to the Victoria Cougars for a used bus.” To say that my knowledge of the comings and goings in the Western Hockey League is an eighth of an inch deep would be most generous; clearly, the memories he refers to here did not…

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:18 am
    The Percy Harvin trade from Seattle to the Jets generated a lot of commentary late last week, as it should have. The swap has the potential to generate waves in a variety of dimensions. The Jets’ organization is not particularly stable about now. Rumors and intrigues swirl around the head coach and the GM; the team is 1-6 and its “quarterback situation” is not exactly in a tranquil place. With no direct knowledge of Percy Harvin, let me just say that press reports indicate he might not be the easiest person to get along with. If he helps the Jets win a few games, he will be seen as a…

    Michael Vick will be forever judged as a man full of mistakes. A star-studded NFL player who made wrong choices along his career path. Michael Vick’s latest mistake might be the biggest one of his professional career. After five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Vick had his choice between the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  At 34 years old, none of the teams saw him as a starter. Plus, his history of injuries have prevented him from playing more than 13 games in a single season.  Instead of a starter, teams were looking for depth and…

So might, as well get in on it, but my rankings will be different. They won’t be judged on stats alone but more on there impact on the game.

    The Seattle Seahawks might not be the most talented team in the NFL on paper, but then again, they weren’t last season either. When the Seahawks won the Super Bowl, they were different. Not different players, but different characteristics that propelled the team to the championship. The Seattle Seahawks are struggling with success and lack the underdog edge which motivated them to victory a year ago. It’s obvious, not just because of a loss at home to the Dallas Cowboys, but by the style they play the game. The Super Bowl champs played with a chip on their shoulder; that added…

    There’s a reason people have an attachment to older stadiums from their youth. They can be the anchor for many living memories, and standing next to those same stone pillars or painted seats can take one back to an earlier time. In a world where things are constantly changing, where the next version of the iPhone is out months later, where the corner store changes hands many times over, or a new business development pops up seemingly overnight in an empty field, well, having that constant can be comforting.

    When do you take a chance on Robert Griffin III? I know that the last two years have been tough, and just a month ago some people were talking like he might never be the starting quarterback again in Washington. On Sunday, though, Kirk Cousins was benched in favor of Colt McCoy. Colt McCoy will likely start this week (and would be a low end one week starting option given the Cowboys’ defense has been pretty good). After that? It’s possible that Griffin could be back as early as this week, with news that he will return to practice. More likely, the team will play it cautiously,…

  • While You Were Worrying About Her Face: Renée Zellweger Is Starring In A Faith-Based Film From The Author Of ‘Heaven Is For Real’

    Vince Mancini
    21 Oct 2014 | 4:45 pm
    Getty Image While the media narrative has already shifted from this morning’s “Whoa, Renée Zellweger looks different!” into full “What we talk about when we talk about Renée Zellweger’s face” thinkpiece mode, I thought we could take a step back to remember why we she’s in the public eye again in the first place. Namely, because she has some movies coming out. As Josh Kurp reported this morning, Zellweger will star opposite Keanu Reeves and Jim in The Whole Truth. But that’s not all! According to Deadline, Zellweger has also signed on for…
  • IKEA Singapore’s New Halloween Commercial Is A Spooky Tribute To ‘The Shining’

    21 Oct 2014 | 4:30 pm
    This new commercial from IKEA Singapore pays homage to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining with a “Danny Lloyd”-type kid peddling through a dimly lit, deserted store. In addition to being just in time for Halloween, the clip was made to help promote the company’s extended hours. “Late night shopping may never be the same again”, the video’s accompanying description notes. That’s clever advertising and all, but now I feel as though this spooky ad will kinda make me look at IKEA shopping in general  — day or night — in a whole new way. ::Shudders::…
  • Watch These ‘Potty-Mouthed Princesses’ Shout F-Bombs To Fight Discrimination

    FCKH8 If you’re the kind of person who loves it when little kids curse, this might be your favorite video of the year. But if you’re also the kind of person who loves when precocious children act silly for a very serious topic, then the Internet’s not going to get much better than this. The folks at FCKH8, which is hip youth speak for Hatred is Icky, gathered some adorable young girls, dressed them up like princesses and then had them curse like sailors who were just recalled from shore leave after one hour. The cause? Ending discrimination against women in the workplace and beyond. A…
  • Follow-Up: ‘Exodus: Gods And Kings’ Running Time Is Quite Reasonable, Actually

    Vince Mancini

    Fox This morning I told you about a rumor emanating from IMDB, picked up on Reddit and CinemaBlend, that Exodus: Gods And Kings was going to clock in at three hours and 20 minutes long. It sounded a little fishy all along, and while I was waiting on Fox reps to respond at the time, I probably should’ve ignored it altogether, considering the source. In any case, the word I’m getting now is that while it’s probably not the final cut before the film hits December 12th, Exodus: Gods and Kings, starring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramses, currently runs 142…

    It looks like the Flash is stepping away from his usual rogue’s gallery in his third episode and confronting The Mist, a nemesis of Starman. Here’s a brief overview of where we are so far, and what might happen tonight. First, the plot. It turns out the Mist is your classic grudgeholder; he’s a criminal that hates the people who put him away, so he decides to constructively handle his problems with murder. On his burn list is, of course, Barry’s adoptive dad, so of course the Flash takes him on. Also of interest this episode for nerds will be this sentence in the plot…

  • Michael Sam Is Unemployed Again

    Christmas Ape
    21 Oct 2014 | 12:38 pm
    AP Michael Sam didn’t even get to last two months on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad before being released by the team on Tuesday. So far there’s no explanation for the move beyond the fact that the Cowboys have signed linebacker Troy Davis and defensive tackle Ken Bishop to the practice squad. Meanwhile, there was a piece published in The Advocate this morning talking about how the Cowboys and the first openly gay player on an NFL team were enjoying a lull in media coverage. So much for the that lull and so much for Sam’s time with the Cowboys. If it’s any…
  • KLEARINGHOUSE: Indefinite Ban From Halloween

    21 Oct 2014 | 9:03 am
    Via Reddit One dipshit thought it was a great idea to don a Ray Rice costume replete with an inflatable woman to drag around at a very early Halloween party. I’ve seen the costume posted elsewhere with a surprising amount of “What’s the big deal? Have a sense of humor!” type reactions. While I’m down to make fun of some dark things, part of it is the execution. And this costume definitely skews more toward celebrating what Rice did than condemning it. — Jay Gruden has expressed doubt over whether RGIII has proven that he’s a franchise quarterback.
  • Alex Smith Rankings: Everybody Sucks Edition!

    Johnny Sugar
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:08 am
    It’s a difficult time for Alex Smith Rankings, because almost none of our favorite middling quarterbacks have been so much as adequate lately. Pretty much all of the mainstays in this feature have had at least one crappy game in the past two weeks. Before we go in, a moment of silence for Kirk Cousins, who is you thought he was (and is certainly not worth a first-rounder from anybody). Worth noting, I had no intention of making the “moment of silence for the QB who got benched since the last column” a regular feature, but every time I do this, another guy loses his job, and…
  • Meast and Least for Week 7

    Christmas Ape
    21 Oct 2014 | 7:14 am
    Getty Image The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast of Week 7 is Sammy Watkins, who had his best day yet as a pro, catching nine passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner in the closing seconds, in the Bills’ 17-16 victory over the Vikings. While Buffalo has been eking out some crazy comeback wins in the last few weeks, their ceiling is only so high with the oddly clean shaven Kyle Orton under center. That Watkins is living up to his hype gives fans at least some hope for the future. Whether that’s a cruel thing to give Bills fans is another matter. Also…

    The New England Patriots will likely be without Chandler Jones for the foreseeable future.

The Orlando Sentinel's Josh Robbins broke the news, while Yahoo Sports' Marc J. Spears added details of the extension. Vucevic has earned the raise.

    You can already start to feel it. The vibes surrounding Rudy Gobert have been pumping with positivity since summer league back in July. They would soon carry over into the 2014 Basketball World Cup, where he posed as a difference-maker down the stretch in France's awesome upset over Spain.  And now we're seeing Gobert kick some butt in NBA preseason. He's averaging 9.6 rebounds and 1.5 blocks on 57.1 percent shooting in only 20.6 minutes. Prior to the Utah Jazz trading for him on draft night, Gobert's appeal as a prospect was tied strictly to his remarkable physical tools. Nobody really…

Meanwhile, the Heat managed to pick themselves up off the canvas after dropping their first four exhibition games, beating the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs on consecutive days.

  • Minor Moves: Mike Zagurski, Enrique Burgos

    Here are the day’s minor moves: Southpaw reliever Mike Zagurski has signed on with Nippon’s Hiroshima Carp, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports on Twitter. The 31-year-old had his way with Triple-A competition last year, posting a cumulative 2.08 ERA over 60 2/3 frames with 12.3 K/9 against 4.3 BB/9.

The contract includes incentives that could boost its value to $4MM, per Chris Cotillo of (via Twitter).

  • Free Agent Profile: Adam LaRoche

    Though he’s not technically a lock to hit the open market due to a $15MM mutual option ($2MM buyout), Adam LaRoche is a near certainty to be a free agent due to the rarity of such options being picked up by both sides of the agreement. The soon-to-be 35-year-old first baseman should represent one of the few steady power bats on the free agent market. Strengths/Pros Power is on the decline league-wide, but LaRoche remains a steady source of home runs from the left side of the dish. He’s averaged 26 homers per season over the past three years (the same number he totaled in 2014),…

The new findings "were against our expectations," said Donald Tashkin of the University of California at Los Angeles, a pulmonologist who has studied marijuana for 30 years.

    Jennifer Smith

    Sporting events can be extremely profitable for the right company or entrepreneur. Additionally, sporting events offer a worthwhile sponsorship opportunity to marketers who want to reap the benefits of being seen by attendees. Unfortunately, getting started won’t be easy – nor will it be cheap. After initial costs and plans are laid out, there’s even more to think about in terms of hosting, promotion, permits, zonings; and the list continues on. If you think you can handle all the dilemmas that may (and probably will) arise, you’re ready to host your own sporting event. Sporting…

    It’s rather interesting; when championships are spoken of, a great deal of people are actually speaking of surrounding social affairs.  The commentary centers upon commercials, foods, drinks, and places for getting our groove on. Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience.

  • Where Are The Ryder Cup Headlines This Year?

    Jennifer Smith
    8 Sep 2014 | 10:36 am
    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.

    The Anaheim Ducks are coming off one of the best seasons in team history with regards to regular season wins. They finished second in the league behind only Boston, who edged them out by one point. They ended up winning their first round matchup vs Dallas (4-2), but were eventually defeated in round two by the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  The key to the Ducks success is the incredible consistency throughout the lineup. At first glance, people just see the massive point totals coming from the Ducks’ Superstars – Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. What most people do not notice…

  • In Ohio State's Offensive Outburst, Jalin Marshall Emerging as Latest Playmaker

    Patrick Maks
    21 Oct 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Midway through Ohio State’s season, Jalin Marshall’s stat line — at least in and of itself —  isn't much to look at. It's pretty pedestrian. He’s caught six passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns and taken six punts back for 111 yards through six games. But they don’t tell the story of how Marshall —  a talented redshirt freshman H-back — is starting to emerge as a legitimate playmaker for an Ohio State offense that's bonkers good on offense right now. In a 56-17 destruction of Rutgers Saturday, Marshall had arguably his best game as a Buckeye. He caught three passes for…

    Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has made it known to all that quarterback J.T. Barrett is not the same type of player as the injured Braxton Miller. But when it was brought up Tuesday on the Big Ten coaches teleconference that Barrett has looked a little like Miller in his ability to escape pressure at times this year, Meyer didn't necessarily disagree. “He does a nice job pulling himself out of harm’s way and pulling himself out of — he’s saved our bacon a few times," Meyer said.

    When Ohio State at Penn State opened up at Ohio State (-11.5), I chortled. I undestand the Vegas Death Machine is well-oiled and merciless, and I'm just an average college football fan, but that line seemed like free money. Even though it's been bet up to Ohio State (-13.5), I still would have a hard time betting against the Buckeyes (assuming I owned money with which to bet in the first place). And while Beaver Stadium will certainly be a huge home field advantage for Penn State (and the most hostile environment in which redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett has played), Penn State boasts a…
  • Breaking Down: Ohio State vs. Rutgers Film

    Ross Fulton
    21 Oct 2014 | 10:15 am
    Ohio State utilized its mid-range play action game and improving pass defense to jump out to an early lead and soundly defeat Rutgers. The Buckeyes exploited a Scarlet Knights defense focused on the inside run game not only with the aforementioned play-action, but also by re-equating numbers with JT Barrett as a runner. And while the OSU defense was at time susceptible to misdirection, it successfully limited Rutgers' passing game, allowing the Buckeyes to quickly build a lead and coast to victory. Accounting for the Quarterback The Scarlet Knights generally aligned in their standard 4-3…
  • The Rise of Zeke: Elliott Turning Into Complete Marquee Running Back

    The Big Ten is blessed with a wealth of talent at the running back position, including Heisman Trophy candidates Ameer Abdullah and Melvin Gordon, along with other outstanding players like Tevin Coleman and Jeremy Langford. While those four grab most of the headlines among the B1G’s tailbacks, Ohio State sophomore Ezekiel Elliott is quietly becoming one of the most complete backs in the conference. And he seems to get better with every game. In the season’s first two games, the product of John Burroughs High School in St. Louis rushed 20 total times for 76 yards, scoring one touchdown…

Essentially, if you purchase a ticket at the “UWin” price for the first non-conference men’s basketball game, you get a free ticket to the next home game, and you can continue to get free tickets to each subsequent non-conference game as long as Rutgers wins. Historically, Rutgers men’s basketball has not been a very competitive program, so this is an interesting way to drive interest in these early…

    Here goes nothing. I'm not predicting who wins shootouts or not, so this is regulation points only. Add in six points to every team if you want to give them all an average number of shootout wins. Since coaching and goalie changes are typically the biggest wild cards (i.e. Bishop/Cooper in Tampa and Roy in Colorado last year) when it comes to predictions, figured I'd note those as well. And

    Living in a materialistic world, it’s not uncommon to hear people joke that happiness is when you are rich. That would make sense, right? Especially if you consider that some people buy things to make themselves happy and in order to buy things you need money. So lots of money = lots of happiness. If that theory is correct, how come there are so many rich people who are unhappy? Sure, money can allow us to buy many things and even win friends and pay for surgery to make us look younger on the outside, but it doesn’t buy good health which is a key element of an optimal lifestyle.

While I think the Utes have a shot at every game left on their schedule, I think they matchup particularly well in this game. The defense will put pressure on Kessler and stifle the Trojan run game and the offense has the tools to put up more yards than they have against any Power 5 team so far this year. With the way Boston College ran on USC, I’d like to see Travis Wilson get the zone read and Booker into action early and often with some guest appearances from…

If not corrected drops can lead to removal from the depth chart and a seat on the bench.

    Grant Bagby
    18 Oct 2014 | 8:50 am
    Written by: Zak Hicken. Follow him on Twitter: @zakhicken There is a recurring theme being repeated that BYU’s 2014 season is lost and there is nothing to play for after they lost their two recent games to Utah State and UCF. But is that really the case? We as fans got something that we don’t normally experience which is a 4-0 start through what was considered the toughest stretch of the schedule, including blowout a win at Texas. After that, talk of an undefeated season and potential NY6 bowl berth took off at full speed. Unfortunately, those hopes came crashing down in dramatic fashion…

    21 Oct 2014 | 4:38 pm
    That seems like a bit much. We're used to conferences fining coaches and athletic directors for criticizing officiating, and just this season, Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard got the biggest fine in Big 12 history for his rant. But now the Big 12 has taken its control over officiating comments a step further, fining ... an SID? In accordance with the Big 12 Conference Principles and Standards of Sportsmanship, the Conference has issued a public reprimand of Baylor University Associate Athletic Director Heath Nielsen for Twitter comments made during Saturday's football game…
  • Magic, Nikola Vucevic agree on 4-year, $54 million extension

    Ricky O'Donnell
    21 Oct 2014 | 4:23 pm
    The No. 16 pick in the 2012 draft is getting paid. Nikola Vucevic agreed to a four-year, $54 million contract extension with the Orlando Magic, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Vucevic, who turns 24 years old later this week, averaged 14.2 points and 11 rebounds per game last season for Orlando. Vucevic was acquired from the Philadelphia 76ers as part of a four-team trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers in Aug. 2012. Vucevic became Howard's de-facto replacement with the Magic, and has turned into a reliable inside scorer. He's shot better than 50 percent from the…

    Nice guys. Sunderland were absolutely throttled by Southampton on Saturday. The 8-0 loss was an embarrassment, but at least the players got paid to be part of it. The fans paid to travel south and for tickets to watch their team get beat down. That's just brutal, but the players are going to help them out. The Sunderland players have committed more than £60,000 to reimburse the fans who went to the match. Anyone who went and paid the £24 for a ticket can get that money back, courtesy of the players. Goalkeeper Vito Mannone, who had to pick the ball out of his own net eight…

Whether you’re sweating it out in Alabama’s lingering summer weather or bundling up in Michigan’s early fall, tailgating is a great way to connect with old and new friends while showing off your school spirit. But no game would be complete without some killer accessories, so gather around the gridiron in style with this must-have tailgating gear. A ridiculous hat Nothing says “school…

    The fall semester is just a few short weeks away, and that can only mean one thing: the beginning of college football season. And for a handful of University of Iowa students, the thrill of cheering on their team isn’t the only thing they’ll have to look forward to. The school recently announced that five current students who purchase season tickets by this coming Friday, August 1, will win free tuition for the upcoming academic year. Students received an e-mail from the school this past Monday informing them that 11 prizes will be awarded to randomly selected students who…
  • Securing a Sports Internship

    19 May 2014 | 5:00 pm
    From my extensive experience and expertise, I can tell you for a fact that sports internships are among the hardest to garner. The bottom line is that they are extremely popular. Like the entertainment industry, people very much want to break into the sports field, and as is found with most industries nowadays, internships have become the route people now need to take to get their foot in the proverbial door. So how do you stand out and get yourself noticed? Be more interested than interesting My advice is to be more interested than interesting. What does that mean? It means to delve deep and…

    CoachUp Private Basketball Coaches Share Their Insight Into the Qualities All Great Players Must Have. Becoming a great basketball player is so much more than just refining the skills that are on display on the court. While a combination of hard work, practice and natural talent does go a long way in helping to develop a player, true greatness in basketball is achieved through developing the “intangibles” as well— those traits that aren’t easily identifiable, but are the most important for reaching success in the sport. Here’s what ten CoachUp coaches have listed as their one…
  • How Big of a Problem Are Youth Sports Injuries?

    Jackie Bledsoe
    9 Oct 2014 | 7:24 am
    I recently learned that a player on the youth basketball team I coach sustained a concussion when he was a few years younger (non-sports related). While he is fine now, has been checked out by the doctors, and is cleared to play, it concerned me. My mind immediately flashed back to play in our spring league, when it seemed like we had a number of kids repeatedly fall, bump their heads, take a blow to the face, or even have a busted nose. One of which was my son who fell on his eye and almost immediately had a golf ball size knot on his eyebrow. I kept trying to remember if this particular…
  • 6 Unrealistic Expectations Sports Parents Place on Young Athletes

    Janis Meredith
    8 Oct 2014 | 5:09 am
    One of the biggest reasons for conflict in relationships is unmet expectations. And in youth sports, it is no different. Parents expect things from their kids who play sports— things that the child may not be ready or able to deliver. We should be hoping for the best for our kids. We should express our belief in them. We should voice a positive outlook. However, sometimes all that hoping and expressing belief and voicing optimism morphs into high expectations that are unrealistic. And it is then that frustration arises between parent and athlete. Are any of these unrealistic expectations…

    Things are starting to take shape in the NFL, as Dallas' defeat of Seattle substantiated that the Cowboys are the real deal, at least to this point in the season. In a division that was thought to be one of the weakest before the first game was played, we now find two NFC East teams at the top of the NFC, with Philadelphia joining Dallas at 5 - 1. In the other conference, San Diego has emerged as a contender to Denver as the class of the AFC. As for the rest of the league, with the exception of Washington, Jacksonville, Oakland and Tampa Bay, everyone else is fighting to emerge from the…

    Mississippi State vaulted Florida State to move into the top position in the polls, but the Bulldogs still have a daunting schedule the rest of the way, with games at Kentucky, followed by Arkansas, Alabama and Ole Miss the rest of the way. If they get through that gauntlet, then they’ll be facing an SEC East foe in the conference championship game. It will most likely be a jumbled mess by the time the playoff committee meets in early December to name their final four teams.I’ve been doing a lot of work in preparation for the release of my second book in the PK Frazier series, “Roughing…

    Not as much turmoil at the top as last week. With number 2 playing number 3, someone in the top five had to lose. I feel good about the Oregon, USC, Georgia and Baylor picks when it was fashionable this week to go the other direction. Mississippi State is certainly in the driver's seat, but games against Arkansas, Alabama and Ole Miss still loom large for the Bulldogs. We're barely at halfway in the season and there are only five Power 5 unbeatens, and two of those have to lose since in addition to the battle for Mississippi to close the regular season, Florida State hosts Notre Dame this…

    We're now down to 11 from 18 teams that are either .500 or one game above or below that number. The good teams are starting to separate themselves from the mediocre ones. Jacksonville and Oakland still don't have a win, and since they don't play, there is still a chance for both to put up a goose egg for the season.

    Brad DeHaven
    2 Oct 2014 | 11:02 pm
    Some heads definitely turned when ESPN chose to broadcast a High School football game this fall on it’s primary channel (not ESPN 2 or 3).  The game showcased two of the top teams in the country, Saint John Bosco (Bellflower, CA) vs Bishops Gorman (Las Vegas, NV). There is no doubt that High School football is becoming more competitive and exciting to watch.  The skill level of many High School athletes is increasing as more private coaching and access to online training are readily available. In 2011, a TV series titled,  ’4th and Forever’ showcased Long Beach Poly…

  • Receiver Skills Are Many, Getting Off The Jam is One

    Brad DeHaven

    Playing the position of receiver requires skills such as good hand-eye coordination, great balance, explosive lower body strength, good agility, and great athleticism just to name a few. One of the most important fundamentals that will help take any receiver to another level is the ability to get off the line of scrimmage against a man defender. Here’s a link to 22 minute teaching video for receivers to get off of press coverage.  At the youth or high school level you don’t often encounter man coverage, however, learning how to get off the line of scrimmage versus a man defender is a…

    The college football season is already more than halfway over. There are plenty of exciting games left on the schedule, but the season certainly seems to be flying by. At this point in the season, it’s important to pay attention to injuries and roster changes because coaches with no bowl prospects or a long road to go for a bowl game may start to look towards the future. Be aware of those so you can adjust your numbers accordingly. ACC Virginia Tech’s injury problems just keep coming.

Also in Italy where often everyone has to wear a hair net or swim cap in the swimming pool. Unusual destinations and…

    With several races coming up, I thought I would share my thoughts on the benefits of having people there to support you at a race.  One of the things that makes big races fun is the vast amount of spectators.  The masses of people bring huge amounts of energy to a course. I definitely loved the spectators this year at Boston, they were excited and they were loud.  However, if I had to pick a marathon I have done that I would say had my favorite crowd, I would pick Chicago without a doubt.  There was literally not a moment on the course when there weren’t rows and rows of people. …

    The Ohio State Buckeyes moved higher to number 12 in the coaches poll after routing Rutgers Saturday in the Ohio Stadium. The poll released Sunday is disappointing to Buckeye fans who are looking to move into one of the top spots before the season comes to an end. Rutgers wasn’t much of a challenge for OSU who finished the game with an impressive 56 points only allowing the Scarlet Knights to score 17. The BCS no longer includes the Coaches poll in calculating who plays for the National Title at the end of the year so it is irrelevant for the most part.

  • Ohio State Buckeyes Beat the Kent State Golden Flashes 66-0

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:42 am
    Kent State Golden Flashes athletic logo (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The Buckeye players have an ardent fan base. They are probably one of the most recognized teams in all the country. Buckeyes are also still considered one of the contenders for the top spot in the game despite their loss to Virginia Tech last week. The Kent state Golden Flashes on the other had, have had a pretty good run in the past but don’t play the level of competition or recruit the level of player that the Buckeyes do. Last week the Flashes went head to head with OSU in a nail biting game for about 10 minutes. This was…

Our bodies are our gardens to which our wills are gardeners. – William Shakespeare, Othello We generally think of gymnastics as a sport in which the athlete’s body is their primary instrument. Each time Amelia “Millie” Andrilenas, a junior at Juniata High School in Washington, takes to the gymnastic floor she demonstrates that success in the sport comes from the fusion of her soul and her body to display the beauty of the physical form in motion.

    By Better Nutrition Greens aren’t just good for your health—they’re great. Green drinks, particularly, contain a healthy mix of nutrient-filled algae and grasses that offer detoxifying and alkalizing amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants. Greens are among my very favorite foods. Steamed, sautéed, raw—it doesn’t matter. Load up my plate and I’m happy. In fact, I’d eat them even if they weren’t so healthy! But I know that there are a lot of people who simply can’t stand the thought of eating kale, spinach, or broccoli. Here’s what…
  • Dream Big…Always: Tommy Paul Focuses On His Dreams

    High School Illustrated

    To most of us, the net on a tennis court divides the physical space between the opponents; the place where they move and play, a boundary to define whether a ball is in or out. For Tommy Paul, one of the nation’s top teen tennis players, the net demarcates the psychic space of strategy, mental toughness, and a place where his dreams are fulfilled. “He has always liked to compete, and he hates to lose,” explained Tommy’s mother, Jill MacMillan. She continued that “Tommy is pretty good at dissecting his opponents and constructing points.” These words are from…

    Jim Spier has been a fan of track and field since he was a high school student in the late 1950s. When he attended track and field events as an adult he got interested in the Junior events (under 20) and noticed that the Junior teams did not represent the makeup of the top high school track and field athletes in the nation. Together with his friend, Mike Byrnes, they did some digging, asking questions and studying the process. What Jim and Mike learned is that many young high school athletes could not advance to higher level sanctioned events. On their own, they launched an effort in the mid…
  • Strength Training: Well Balanced Training Is Key To Success

    High School Illustrated
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Strength training is a vital part of a balanced exercise routine that includes aerobic activity and flexibility exercises. Regular aerobic exercise, such as running or using a stationary bike, makes your muscles use oxygen more efficiently and strengthens your heart and lungs. When you strength train with weights, you’re using your muscles to work against the extra pounds (this concept is called resistance). This strengthens and increases the amount of muscle mass in your body by making your muscles work harder than they’re used to. Most people who work out with weights typically…

  • Burning questions facing Big Ten teams (Part 1)

    Dylan Burkhardt
    21 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    Big Ten players and coaches took to Chicago last week to face the media for the first time this season and answer questions about expectations, offseason development and more. With the start of the season less than a month away, we ran through the conference to look at one major question facing all 14 teams.  Iowa: Can the Hawkeyes bounce back from last year’s disappointing finish without Devyn Marble? In mid-February, Fran McCaffery appeared to be on the verge of his big breakthrough in Iowa City. The Hawkeyes were 19-6 and looked like a team headed for a top-5 NCAA tournament…

    Dustin Johnston The moment was emblematic of Michigan’s run to the Big Ten title last season. With the seconds ticking down in the first half of the Wolverines’ game against Michigan State on February 23rd, Caris LeVert caught a pass and immediately elevated for a three from his sweet spot, the left corner. As the ball arced toward the hoop, the guard turned and began sprinting back to the locker room. He didn’t need to keep watching to know the shot was going to drop. LeVert finished with 23 points that afternoon as part of a breakout sophomore campaign that saw his transformation into…

    With the start of college basketball around the corner, we’re breaking down Michigan’s roster player-by-player. Previously: Spike Albrecht. (Photo: Dustin Johnston) Zak Irvin was Michigan’s sixth man last season, but he never had trouble making himself noticed on the floor. When Irvin checked into the game he was ready to do one thing: shoot, and then shoot some more. Irvin shot the ball on 25.9% of Michigan’s offensive possessions while he was on the court. That’s more than Nik Stauskas, Caris LeVert or Glenn Robinson III, the focal points of last year’s offense. If…

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:22 am
    Dustin Johnston ROSEMONT, Ill. — If you like offense, you’ve enjoyed watching Michigan lately. The last two seasons, the Wolverines have led the nation in adjusted offensive efficiency, operating at such a high pace in 2013-14 that they finished with the best recorded mark in Ken Pomeroy’s history. Michigan returns plenty of talent from last year, including preseason All-Big Ten team member Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, and Zak Irvin. Plus, the Wolverines should see immediate offensive contributions from 4-star forward Kameron Chatman. All told, John Beilein has said this may be his…

    Dustin Johnston ROSEMONT, Ill. — John Beilein, Caris LeVert, and Spike Albrecht were all in attendance to represent Michigan at Big Ten Media Day on Thursday morning. They were among the most popular groups at the event, fielding questions from reporters throughout the hour of availability. Though Wisconsin is the unanimous favorite to win the conference, coaches and players alike asserted that several other teams, including the Wolverines, could compete for the Big Ten title. And given Michigan’s penchant to reload rather than rebuild under Beilein, the attention Thursday wasn’t much…

    The Detroit Hustle -- Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and sometimes Pistons musings

  • I want to believe: finding the meaning in the Lions’ inexplicable win over the Saints

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Jim Caldwell stepped to the podium as he does every week. He knew he had to talk first, that he needed an opening statement, a couple of words to summarize the game. He couldn’t find any. “Alright. Games in this league are…” Caldwell shook his head. “…are, uh, are crazy.” When it was 23-10 I was sitting with a friend who had grown up a Lions fan but had moved out of state. He still paid attention, but became apathetic to actually watching the games. “At a certain point they have to show me something,” he told me. This game was not that.

I figured I might as well share it with you. • The Red Wings inquired about acquiring Buffalo defenseman Tyler Myers, according to TSN’s Elliotte Friedman. The Sabres wanted Anthony Mantha. Detroit said no. Talks fizzled after that. TSN’s Darren Dreger told a Toronto radio station that he expects Myers to be moved, but maybe not any time soon. TSN’s Bob McKenzie also said that Detroit was one of many asking…
  • The Book On: Gustav Nyquist, the worst shootouter in Red Wings history

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Gustav Nyquist is the absolute worst, and he’s extending his lead. Despite being one of the Red Wings’ most skilled players this side of Pavel Datsyuk, Nyquist’s shootout numbers are the lowest ever seen in a Red Wings uniform. Before Nyquist came along, no Red Wing had more than four shootout attempts without a goal. Nyquist is 0-for-6 after missing the net against Boston on Wednesday. Among those who have better shootout numbers than Nyquist: Tomas Holmstrom (1-for-4), Niklas Kronwall (1-for-2), Patrick Eaves (2-for-6) and Drew Miller (1-for-2). Nobody really needs the…

It had to be the culmination of his professional career.

Those soldiers had to keep occupied on the island just off the coast of the North Fork, so they took to open land and played sports.

DJax had just beaten the Titans’ secondary moments earlier, but the long reception was negated by a hands-to-the-face penalty against C Kory Lichtensteiger — one of several big plays negated in this game by stupid penalties on the Skins. Not long after the penalty, though, Jackson again beat the Titans secondary and McCourty had to reach out and grab…

Unfortunately, a 2012 study in the journal “Pediatrics” found that many children and teens consume too much salt or sodium which increases their risk of having high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a range of heart diseases. Young people should consume no more than 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily. In fact, less is better.

Siegel Center serves as home to Virginia’s top basketball camp. An added bonus: the shoe fashion show that takes place on the court. Take a look at a few footwear favorites: Will defenders see you coming if you’re camouflaged? Real basketball camp ballers wear violet—with matching socks, of course. The only thing better than awesome shoes is VCU-autographed awesome shoes. Orange is the new black? A splash of lime always goes well with turquoise. If you…

    Photo by Kiersten Koenig By Otesa Miles The school cafeteria serves as a social hub for many students. It’s also a place where young people have the opportunity to make some independent food decisions. Whether campers take lunch in a box or grab a hot tray at school, lunch is a good time to remember all of the healthy food tips gleaned during Shaka Smart Basketball Camps. Here are a few ways to guarantee a healthy lunch: Load up on leaves. Those green, leafy veggies pack in a ton of important vitamins and minerals.

    What Type of Person Are You Becoming? –   One day when I was playing with my son in his room, I noticed these interesting soft spots, almost dimples, in his wall. I thought there might be a leak somewhere, so I called a plumber. He confirmed that there wasn’t a leak, but I had subterranean termites eating the drywall. If I filled in the dimples and painted over them without calling an exterminator, it would look fine for a while, but I would have wasted my time… Continue Reading On » DANGERS OF HAZING: How to Finally Put an End to This…

  • Review Of Nightforce NXS 5.5-22×50

    19 Oct 2014 | 1:16 am
    This is a big question: which optics should you choose for your long range weapons? The first thing that you do on picking up a rifle scope is to look through the reticle and put it on target. While we are discussing about the long range shooting, it is important to note that these involve shooting targets at unknown distances and even while on the move. This kind of shooting is found in both military and sports. Whatever the field of application, the most important requirement for this type of shooting is the rifle scope. Nightforce offers a plethora of rifle scopes for the users: Benchmark,…
  • Kimber .22LR Bolt Action Rifle – A Review

    19 Oct 2014 | 12:46 am
    The most essential quality in the hunting rifle is that it should be reliable and suitable for the owner. Thus, a prospective buyer should make a list of possible models and then visit his or her local gun shop and try each. Keep the rifle on your shoulder, operate the action, switch the safety on and off, dry fire the rifle. Then buy the one that fits best. Stock fit and ergonomics are important, so if a recommended rifle does not fit you, do not buy it. Even the best rifles in the market, like, the Kimber hunting rifles, should be tested prior to purchase. Although a number of hunting…

Still, the weekend’s football is never as interesting without a few bets and I’ve been trawling through the statistics once more in my quest to unearth some value football tips.

    The Group H leaders meet the last placed team, as FC Porto welcome Athletic Club Bilbao in Champions League’s third match day. The Portuguese have four points out of two matches, while Bilbao have only one after a goalless draw against Shakhtar. The hosts look pretty solid at home and Bilbao does not look spurred for an upset considering their current form. Porto comes from a loss to Sporting in the third round of the Portuguese Cup, which only proved the point that dominating the possession percentage does not guarantee a win. The hosts won the first Champions League group game this season…

  • The Playoff Implications Of Every Game For Every NFL Team

    Mike Beuoy
    16 Oct 2014 | 9:33 am
    “Playoff Implications” is a phrase you usually don’t hear until the final weeks of the NFL regular season, but almost every regular season game has playoff implications. In the early going, however, it can be difficult to figure out just what those implications are, and how much is riding on each game.Most other major sports leagues play a greater number of regular season games, and thus the playoff picture in those sports evolves in a more incremental fashion. The pace can seem glacial at times for MLB, and inevitable and foregone when it comes to the NBA. But with just 16 regular…

    In 1994, I had only been watching the NFL for a couple of years. I lived in Hawaii, where the closest thing to a home team we had was the Pro Bowl — which pretty much made me a Dallas Cowboys fan. I griped when it seemed like the Miami Dolphins were on TV every week.But that changed on Nov. 27, when I watched the Dolphins come back from a 17-0 third-quarter deficit against the New York Jets, culminating with Dan Marino’s legendary “Clock, Clock, Clock” play with 30 seconds left that led to the game-winning touchdown. It made me a Dolphins fan for life.3 It blew my young…

    Jonah Keri
    13 Oct 2014 | 10:53 am
    Baseball is, fundamentally, a game of probabilities — measurable probabilities. We can estimate the likelihood that a player will get a hit based on all kinds of factors — whether he bats right- or left-handed, whether the pitcher is right- or left-handed, the size of the ballpark, the quality of the defense on the field, and many other variables. Hell, we can do even better than that. Using the prevailing run-scoring environment of any era, we can determine the average number of runs likely to score using any permutation of runners on base, and outs.All of this information has…
  • On Deck: A Sabermetric Broadcast

    Neil Paine
    10 Oct 2014 | 9:02 am
    Although sabermetrics has substantially reshaped baseball’s on-field product over the past few decades, its progress in the broadcast booth has been slower. It’s not hard to see why the two trends haven’t moved in lockstep: While teams adopted the analytics model out of the need to win games, the same market pressures didn’t apply to commentators. For teams, integrating sabermetrics meant they were more likely to win; for commentators, it meant they were more likely to confuse. But now a younger generation is steeped in analytics, and statistically minded fans obsessively check sites…
  • Skeptical Football: DeMarco Murray Is Way Better At Running Than Alex Henery Is At Kicking

    Benjamin Morris
    9 Oct 2014 | 12:35 pm
    Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is kinda killing it this year. Through five games, he’s leading the league in rushing by more than 200 yards18 — and he’s run for 100 or more yards in every game. He’s even getting MVP buzz, and with his help Dallas is 4-1, tied for the best record in football.Normally I don’t care much about running back stats. RBs have crazy seasons all the time, often signifying very little. This level of performance, for example, is pretty out of character for Murray and Dallas (which has been 8-8 in every year they’ve been together). Seasons like…

    The Kansas City Royals are returning to the World Series once again.  In reaching the playoffs for the first time since 1985, the Royals have found a way to stir up ghosts of October past. Using speed and pitching, as well as combining both of those aspects with a great defense, they have found ways to beat the Goliaths time and time again. The big hits from the favored Angels and Orioles may have been struck, but they were never allowed to find grass. And that is only if you managed to do it in the first 6 innings. With a dominant bullpen anchored by the big 3 in Wade…

Matt Ryan, never considered the strongest of quarterbacks, has had record-setting days against the Saints and the Buccaneers. The Dallas Cowboys, ordinarily the league standard for mediocrity, lead the NFC East due to the normally-fragile DeMarco Murray’s unexpectedly strong play and the…

    After seven matches, the Premier League’s table is beginning to take its usual shape.  Chelsea is at the top, followed by Manchester City, with Manchester United is not far behind at fourth.  The only odd member in the top four is surprisingly Southampton who sold more than £100 millions worth of talents in the last transfer window. I don’t think they will last long though and I do expect Arsenal to complete the top four come May next year.

  • Fixing Man Utd’s Problem Should Be Easy For Van Gaal

    26 Sep 2014 | 10:10 pm
    To me, former Manchester United player, Phil Neville, was foolish when he said that the Red Devils must spend £100m to be title contenders. Neville was obviously referring to the weakness in United’s backline that need to be addressed after thee 5-3 defeat at the hands of newly promoted, Leicester City. He told BBC Radio 5 Live: I think there’s another two transfer windows of similar amounts of money needed – maybe £100m – before they can even think about winning the title. There are still key positions in the team that need filling. I think the centre-back position is obviously…

    By selling Danny Welbeck to direct rival, Arsenal, Louis Van Gaal has certainly put his reputation on the line. Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wengner seem to think that the England striker is a quality player. Sir Alex even choose Welbeck ahead of Wayne Rooney during their Champion League match against Real Madrid a couple of years ago. Van Gaal however, has a different opinion about Welbeck. The Dutchman decided that Welbeck is not good enough for United and happy to let him go for just £16 million. Many fans don’t think it a wise idea. Just £16 million to a direct rival?

    2014 Heisman Power Rankings: It's a Two Horse RaceOct 21, 2014 We are a little over halfway through the college football season, and the true Heisman contenders have started to separate themselves from the rest of the group.

Shark fin soup has for many years been a luxury dish in many Asian countries, seen as something only the rich and famous ate, with many people now being able to afford this luxury it is becoming a common dish to have (still very expensive) and many restaurants serve it.

    Jimmy Case4. Jimmy CaseBlessed with one of the fiercest shots ever seen in this country, local hero Jimmy Case was part of the first Liverpool side to dominate European football. An academy product, Case made his debut for the Reds in 1973 at the tail end of Bill Shankly’s Liverpool dynasty. Little did he know what lay in store for the team under the stewardship of Shankly’s assistant, Bob Paisley. A winner of 4 league titles and an exceptional 3 European Cups, Case remarkably, was never named in an England squad. Playing at a similar time to Ron Harris, Case can be similarly stunned that…

Onnis amassed an incredible 299 goals in a 15 year career in France, playing for Stade Reims, Tours FC, SC Toulon and most notably AS Monaco between 1973 and 1980. His unbeaten haul in French football is made all the more impressive given (Monaco excluded) all his clubs were relegation candidates during his time with them. Even Monaco slipped into the second division in the 76/77 season. But 30 goals from their leading man propelled them back…

Bought for £800,000 from Norwich in 1987, he and partner Gary Pallister formed the rigid backbone of a United side that ended a 26 year wait for the league title. Ever dependable and unmovable, they soaked up enormous pressure, which allowed the likes of Cantona, Giggs, Scholes and Beckham to work their magic further up field.

  • Vikings’ Offensive Line Holding Back Bridgewater, McKinnon

    19 Oct 2014 | 3:24 pm
    The Vikings’ defense played admirably despite a last-second, game-winning touchdown pass from Kyle Orton, Sunday. They forced four turnovers, and the Vikings offense could only muster 16 points in the loss. Patrick Reusse of 1500 ESPN and the Star Tribune has been pretty clear that rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is to blame for the anemic offense. He even wrote that Bridgewater’s performance against Detroit, the NFL’s top-ranked defense, was identical to Christian Ponder’s performance against Green Bay, the NFL’s 19th-ranked defense.

    Coaches are underrated, underpaid and picking a coaching staff is hard. That’s what I’ve learned since attempting to dig into all the coaching candidates to fill positions on the 2015 Minnesota Twins coaching staff. Choosing a coaching staff is largely the manager’s job, but Terry Ryan will certainly play an active role in who the new manager hires, especially if the new manager is young and influential. Although recently it seems anyone Gardy wanted Terry allowed. Perhaps we’re seeing and feeling the effects of that now. The right collection of coaches makes all the…

For the first seven weeks of the season Sam was on the 10-man squad, but never made it to the final 53-man roster. This decision from the Cowboys opens a spot for linebacker Troy Davis, a second-year pro from Central Florida who worked out with the team on Monday. No official statement has been released on the reason why Sam has been waived. Stay tuned for more NFL updates! The post Dallas…

    DUNK360   Every chance that Kevin Durant has to practice on the road he takes it. As a member of one of the league’s most successful road teams, Durant has faced a fair share of opposing crowds. It’s going to be difficult for KD to watch his team battle on the court without him. While he recovers from his surgery, the reigning MVP will be laced up in his new KD7 “On the Road” sneakers. The KD7 On the Road features a blue, orange, silver and black color scheme that’s set off with a distinctive blue strap. This will be the eighth KD7 color-way to release since the…
  • Oscar Pistorius Sentenced To 5 Years In Prison

    21 Oct 2014 | 12:22 pm
    DUNK360 South African sprint runner Oscar Pistorius, 27, was sentenced to 5 years in prison for the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Under South African law Pistorius was found guilty for culpable homicide, which means Pistorious committed the murder unintentionally but still unlawfully. Sobbing in court while hoping to make the best contributions he can to the world, Oscar Pistorious seems to be mentally prepared to face the sentence. His family has also shown public support for him, his uncle Arnold Pistorius making public remarks to reporters “As an uncle, I hope…

    DUNK360 KD’s injury unexpectedly seems to be a “win-win” situation. Rather he’s on or off the court, the money doesn’t stop for the former MVP.  Although he will sitting court-side for some time, doesn’t mean he’s not working. The NBA superstar teamed up with the Neff Headwear for an exclusive underwear collection. Venturing into another aspect of apparel, this partnership is one of the first of its kind in the industry and will feature a unique collection to be worn on and off the court; designs selected by Durant himself. “I’m excited to work…

    The Kansas City Royals will take on the San Francisco Giants in the 2014 World Series. Hold up. Hold up. (not we dem boyz) The Royals are in the World Series? You better believe it. It’s been one of the more remarkable stories in MLB history. Nobody saw it coming and out of nowhere, the Royals have been on a miraculous run. They have won all eight of their playoff games. They haven’t lose a game since September 27th. That’s almost a month. They have breezed by the MLB-best Angels and the Orioles. They swept them both away after coming back from a 7-3 deficit to beat the…
  • NCAA Football Playoff Picture: Who’s In The Hunt?

    20 Oct 2014 | 11:55 am
    Eight weeks into the NCAA Football season, only four unbeaten teams remain, and three out of those four were hardly expected to be in the discussion for the inaugural College Football Playoff. The first set of rankings for the playoff will be announced on October 28.   Only Florida State (7-0, No. 2, AP), despite immense scrutiny regarding their star quarterback Jameis Winston, has managed to live up to the preseason hype, running the table thus far including three close calls (against Oklahoma State, Clemson and most recently, Notre Dame).   Two teams from the Magnolia…
  • Seahawks upset by Rams, in trouble at 3-3

    Six games into the season and the Seattle Seahawks are 3-3 and in third place in the NFC West. The defending Super Bowl champions have plenty of reason for concern after their 28-26 loss to the lowly Rams. In a very good division and a strong NFC, the Seahawks are no lock to get to the playoffs. If you look at the box score Sunday, you would think Seattle dominated in all facets of the game. Somehow, they ended up with a loss. Their defense didn’t play as well as they could have hoped. They trailed early and had to try and come back late. They missed a two-point conversion. They…
  • Jets land Percy, but move comes two weeks late

    With the Jets on the brink of being eliminated from the playoffs just seven games into the season, John Idzik woke up and made a trade. The 1-6 Jets traded a mid-round draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks to get wide receiver and kick/punt returner Percy Harvin. The problem is the move came two weeks too late. Credit Idzik and the Jets organization for getting the deal done. They badly needed another playmaker on offense and Harvin gives them some flexibility on offense and special teams. There’s no doubt the Super Bowl champion with the Seahawks can make plays that Marty…
  • NFL Week 7 picks

    18 Oct 2014 | 4:57 pm
    NFL Week 7 Vikings (2-4) @ Bills (3-3) This game could really come down to a flip of a coin. Teddy Bridgewater has been a bit inconsistent so far. I’ll go with the Bills because Kyle Orton has thrown for a lot of yards since taking over at QB, plus the Bills are at home. PICK: BILLS Falcons (2-4) @ Ravens (4-2) The Falcons just look awful this season. The Ravens have looked like a playoff team so far. This one won’t be close. PICK: RAVENS Browns (3-2) @ Jaguars (0-6) How about these Browns? They crushed the Steelers. Brian Hoyer has been sensational. Maybe they are the real deal,…
