JACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys 2019 , Fla. (AP) — says the Jacksonville Jaguars and free-agent linebacker Jake Ryan have agreed to terms on a contract.The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Sunday because the deal had not been finalized. The person says the deal is contingent on Ryan passing a physical.The 27-year-old Ryan missed all of last season after tearing the ACL in his right knee during training camp.A fourth-round draft pick by Green Bay in 2015, Ryan started 27 games for the Packers during his first three seasons. The former Michigan standout recorded 213 tackles, three pass breakups, one forced fumble and a sack in 43 games with Green Bay. He also was a core special teams player.The Jaguars have little experienced depth behind starting linebackers Myles Jack and Telvin Smith, and Ryan could end up being an upgrade over backups Donald Payne and/or Blair Brown.His pending arrival also could allow Jack the flexibility to move back outside. Jack replaced retired Paul Posluszny in the middle last year, but made more plays as an outside linebacker in 2017. The Jacksonville Jaguars cleared $30 million in salary cap space by cutting five veterans Friday, including former Pro Bowl defenders Malik Jackson and safety Tashaun Gipson.The team also released offensive lineman Jermey Parnell, running back Carlos Hyde and long-snapper Carson Tinker.The Jaguars are expected to use the much-needed cap room to sign a quarterback in free agency next week, possibly Nick Foles.Philadelphia opted not to use the franchise tag on Foles, allowing him to hit the open market. He could get a deal worth more than $20 million annually.Foles led the Eagles to four playoff victories over the last two seasons Josh Allen Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , including the franchise’s first NFL title since 1960. He earned 2018 Super Bowl MVP honors and emerged as the league’s top quarterback commodity.Jacksonville did not part ways with quarterback Blake Bortles, but might do so next week. Cutting Bortles would create another $4.5 million in salary cap space.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars expect DE Yannick Ngakoue’s holdout to be short-livedJaguars rookie safety Zedrick Woods submits retirement paperworkJalen Ramsey says Jaguars don’t plan to give him contract extension this seasonJaguars sign former UCF running back Taj McGowan for added depthJaguars QB Nick Foles to miss OTAs for undisclosed ‘personal reason’The Jags saved $11 million by releasing Jackson, a defensive tackle who was due to count $15 million against the cap. They saved $7.45 million by cutting Gipson, a safety who was due to count $9.05 million against the cap. They saved $6 million on Parnell, $4.7 million on Hyde and $860,000 on Tinker.Jacksonville, however, will have $5.6 million counted against the salary cap from the Jackson and Gipson deals.Jackson and Gipson were productive in Jacksonville, playing in all 48 games during their three seasons.Jackson won a Super Bowl with Denver in 2016 and then signed a six-year, $85.5 million contract with the Jags. The deal included $42 million guaranteed Marcell Dareus Jerseys Stitched , the richest in franchise history.He notched 105 tackles, 18 sacks, eight pass breakups and four forced fumbles. He came off the bench late last season, a clear indication his future with the franchise was in jeopardy.Gipson signed a five-year, $36 million deal that included $12 million guaranteed. He had 159 tackles, 16 pass breakups and six interceptions in three seasons in Jacksonville.Both players should draw plenty of interest in free agency. Jackson is 29 years old and hasn’t missed a game since his rookie year in 2012. Gipson is 28 and hasn’t missed a game since October 2015.The 32-year-old Parnell was entering the final year of his contract and was due a $1 million roster bonus on March 17.Parnell missed three games because of injuries in each of the last two seasons, and the Jaguars believe they can get equal or better production for less money. And that’s necessary for a team with little cap space and plenty of holes to fill.Parnell started 57 games over four seasons after signing a five-year, $32 million contract in 2015. The deal included $15.5 million guaranteed.Tinker missed 27 of 32 games the last two years because of knee injuries, prompting the team to re-sign veteran snapper Matt Overton.Hyde was a disappointment in Jacksonville, which acquired him from Cleveland last October in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick. The Jaguars had hoped he would fill in for injured starter Leonard Fournette Youth Marcell Dareus Jerseys , but Hyde managed just 189 yards in eight games.Fournette, Thomas Rawls and second-year pro David Williams are the only running backs remaining on Jacksonville’s roster.The Jags likely will address the position in free agency or the draft, or maybe both.The 28-year-old Hyde should not have a problem finding a home elsewhere. He has 3,300 yards rushing and 26 touchdowns.He signed a three-year, $15.25 million contract with the Browns last March. He became expendable in Cleveland when rookie Nick Chubb started looking like a second-round steal.Hyde was due a $1 million roster bonus on March 15, the same day that $2 million of his base salary would have become guaranteed.

KANSAS CITY Rashad Fenton Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are already planning their future around signing quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a long-term contract, even though the NFL MVP won’t be eligible to sign an extension until after next season.Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said during a wide-ranging interview Thursday that some of the financial decisions made dating back to last offseason were done with Mahomes in mind, such as the way the franchise structured contracts and how they approached free agency and the draft.“We were prepared for Pat to have success and be a franchise quarterback,” Veach said, “so this process of structuring ourselves for the next three, four, five years started about a year ago.”In the ensuing 12 months, the Chiefs traded incumbent quarterback Alex Smith to Washington and handed the job to Mahomes, who threw for more than 5,000 yards along with 50 touchdown passes while leading the club to its third straight AFC West title and the conference championship game.The Chiefs lost in overtime to the Patriots Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019 , a defeat made even more frustrating by the fact that Kansas City lost the coin flip and Mahomes never had a chance with the ball in the extra session.Off the field, Mahomes has become one of the NFL’s biggest stars.With his moppy Mohawk, earnest attitude and game-changing ability, Mahomes became must-watch TV by the end of the season. He had the eighth-best selling jersey in the NFL, has been courted by a wave of sponsors and has led Las Vegas odds-makers to peg the Chiefs as Super Bowl favorites next season.Some suggest Mahomes could ultimately sign the first $200 million contract in NFL history when he is eligible for an extension after next season.“Even last year, we were putting a plan together,” Veach said. “I think we have a good plan, and everything we do structure-wise will allow for necessary room moving forward.”Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers set the market with a four-year, $134 million extension last offseason, while Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan signed a five-year Infant Rashad Fenton Jersey , $150 million deal. Rodgers has the average highest salary while Ryan had the highest signing guarantee of $94.5 million.Whatever it takes, Veach is intent on making sure the Chiefs have flexibility to do it.“Obviously, there’s tremendous talent, and we had seen, obviously, a chance to see a lot of his work in college, and we saw all last year,” Veach said. “You knew it was inevitable it was coming. But what surprised me was the ease at which he did it. Even great players when they’re young, you anticipate a wall at some point after seven, eight weeks Rashad Fenton Jersey nfl draft , but there was never really a time.”BASKETBALL CAUTIONVideo of Mahomes making a slick spin move during a pickup basketball game went viral this week, and Veach said he’s already spoken to his quarterback about being careful off the field.“It was obviously a light-hearted discussion,” he said. “The problem with Pat is he does everything 100 mph and so dang competitive. I was like, ‘Hey, man, you’re breaking a lot of ankles out there. Don’t break your own.’ And he was like, ‘No, no, we got that.'”STAR SAFETYEric Berry hardly played last season because of a mysterious heel injury, though he was on the field for the AFC title game. Veach said the highly paid safety would discuss with doctors and the training staff whether to have surgery this offseason.“There’s so much medical information they are working through Rashad Fenton Jersey Womens ,” he said. “They’re going through all the postseason evals and exams and then sit down and put together a plan.”THE LINEBACKERSThe Chiefs are expected to switch from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, and that could cause big personnel decisions. Veteran linebacker Justin Houston has the Chiefs’ biggest salary cap number at $21.1 million next season, while top pass rusher Dee Ford could be a candidate for the franchise tag as he hits free agency.“We are running a different scheme now and we started the process Monday of going through the roster, giving you a pure feel of strengths, weaknesses, where we can get better,” Veach said. “Dee is a player that has done so much for us. We’re excited about bringing him back.”OTHER CONTRACTSDefensive tackle Chris Jones and wide receiver Tyreek Hill are eligible for contract extensions this offseason, and Veach said those discussions could begin at the NFL combine.“We’ll have a lot of dialogue with their agents,” he said. “We want them to be here. I’m sure they want to be here and we want to keep this rolling.”HUNT’S FUTUREVeach danced around the question of whether the Chiefs would ever sign running back Kareem Hunt, whom they cut midway through the season after video surfaced of him kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel. Hunt remains on the commissioner’s exempt list Rashad Fenton Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , but other teams have expressed an interest in the former NFL rushing champion.“Our focus and our hopes with Kareem is he’s able to take the steps necessary to get his life in order, and do the right things,” Veach said. “Everything else after that is not as important.” The latestHow Patrick Mahomes remains humble | Yahoo!

And with the 252nd overall selection, the reigning world champions decided to invest in a cornerback.#252: Ken WebsterPosition: CornerbackSchool: MississippiSize: 5109, 203 lbsQuick-hit analysis: A solid tackler with plenty of developmental upside, Ken Webster will likely challenge fellow former seventh-round draft pick Keion Crossen for a role as a special teamer and depth cornerback — and possibly a spot on the 53-man roster or practice squad. The world champions also reign supreme when it comes to roster quality heading into 2019." Patriots First ReadPatriots’ roster ranked as the best in the NFL right nowNew,33commentsThe world champions also reign supreme when it comes to roster quality heading into 2019.EDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Patriots’ roster ranked as the best in the NFL right nowTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmail“Let the hate flow through you.”Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty ImagesFor the second straight offseason, the New England Patriots lost some considerable talent. Rob Gronkowski decided to retire, while core players such as Trey Flowers and Trent Brown left via free agency. But despite seeing three blue-chip players depart over the last few months, the Patriots still have the best roster in football — at least if advanced analytics website Pro Football Focus is to be believed.PFF took a close look at all 32 NFL rosters for an ESPN In$ider story, and New England’s came out on top as the most talented. Along the way Youth Kevin Faulk Jerseys , the analytics team broke down the Patriots’ projected starters on offense and defense in categories based on its grading system from 2018 — from ‘elite’ (90.0+) to ‘good/high quality’ (80.0-89.9) to ‘average’ (70.0-79.9) to below average (0.0-69.9; also for rookies and marginally active players).As can be seen, the Patriots feature some players in all of the categories:Broken down like this, PFF’s grades reflect the Patriots’ way of roster construction: Bill Belichick and company are trying to build a strong middle class and a deep overall team. As can be seen above, the 2018 and 2019 versions appear to fit this mold as well considering that eleven of twenty-four players listed fall in the ‘average’ category — one that sounds pretty pedestrian but actually represents solid contributions across the board.And while the grades should not be seen as the end-point when it comes to assessing a player’s quality — they are merely one piece of the puzzle alongside more traditional statistics and film study — they do give us a good overview over the Patriots’ overall depth and the club’s strengths and weaknesses. PFF also took a specific look at those as part of its evaluation of the league’s rosters.The biggest strength, unsurprisingly, is the quarterback position: “Perhaps the greatest quarterback to play the position continues to produce at an elite level, as Tom Brady led his team to another Super Bowl victory a season ago. The defending champs will lean on their quarterback who, even at 41 years old, showed off all the throws in 2018 and finished with an elite PFF grade (90.7) for the fourth straight season. His game might have changed over the years, but his ability remains high-end.”Seeing Brady listed as the Patriots’ biggest strength was to be expected. After all Kevin Faulk Jerseys Stitched , the soon-to-be 42-year-old is still among the NFL’s elite passers and capable of performing at a high level no matter the situation or the offensive approach New England uses. Just last year, for example, the team relied more on its ground game but still had a generally potent aerial attack whenever the future Hall of Famer dropped back to pass.PFF also went on to define the Patriots’ biggest weakness, and it is not a tight end position that lost Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister this offseason. Instead, the choice was New England’s pass rush — one that will have to make up for the departures of the aforementioned Trey Flowers and veteran Adrian Clayborn in 2019.“The Patriots have long lacked a true pass-rushing threat along the edge. Coupled with the loss of Trey Flowers and Adrian Clayborn this offseason, this unit once again sticks out,” writes PFF. “Outside of Flowers and Clayborn, no Patriots edge defender had more than 30 QB pressures a season ago, as the returning unit brings back only nine sacks Youth Andre Tippett Jerseys , 12 QB hits and 42 QB hurries on a combined 697 pass rushes.”Moving forward, New England will rely on its young and recently acquired talent to generate pressure — from returning players such as Deatrich Wise Jr, John Simon and Derek Rivers to offseason additions Michael Bennett and Chase Winovich. The Patriots’ versatile linebacker group and the defensive scheme will also play their part, of course, as was on perfect display during the team’s victory in Super Bowl 53.And as was the case back in February, the Patriots again reign supreme. if only when it comes to roster quality. Of course, the most important thing is to once more turn this quality into on-field success — an ability New England has shown time and again in the past.

McNeil has a violent first punch that throws defenders off. Also has good footwork which increases his range. Has a huge frame at 6’6” which allowed him to bully at the college level. Considerable starting experience and durability with 46 starts over four years for the Cardinals.WeaknessesVery average athletically, McNeil struggles getting to the second level in run blocking. In pulling situations he also seems to lack strength and fundamentals to lock onto blocks and push the line effectively. Will need to add muscle to compete in the NFL. VerdictHe ent back for his senior year to ‘perfect his craft’ but it may have actually negatively impacted his draft stock. Nonetheless, he has plenty of experience at both tackle and guard, and that makes him an attractive depth option or possibly someone to stash on the practice squad for a year. His build is stellar, just needs to add some muscle to it. Fit with RaidersWith an open competition for the left guard spot, there’s a chance that McNeil impresses in the offseason and preseason and earns the role. He is a long shot to make the roster George Blanda Jersey , but he is used to it. Like rookie running back Josh Jacobs, McNeil is no stranger to adversity, living on the streets while in high school. His passion and desire may be the intangible that allow him to carve out an NFL career. Having ample competition brings out the best in some and the worst in others.Here is is at right guard vs Alabama The Raiders spent the fourth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Clelin Ferrell. Meet the Raiders new player here."Clelin Ferrell, ED, ClemsonMeasurables6’4”, 264 lbsArm length: 34 1/8 inches40-yard dash: N/A*Bench Press: 25 repsNote: Did not run or jump due to toe injuryStats2018: 55 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks2017: 66 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks2016: 44 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss Jim Plunkett Jersey , 6 sacks, 2015: 1 tackle (Red-shirted due to injury)Awards2018: Ted Hendricks Award Winner2018: Bednarik Award Semifinalist2018: All-America First Team2018: All-ACC First Team2018: ACC Defensive Player of the Year2017: Ted Hendricks Award Finalist2017: All-America First Team2017: All-ACC First Team2016: Defensive MVP of Fiesta BowlStrengthsClelin Ferrell has the ideal size and length to be a solid defensive end at the next level. His long arms gives him extra ability to reach the offensive tackle first, and win the hands battle.Smart player, understands how to set up blockers for counter moves, is not one-dimensional in that aspect. Solid strength, makes up for a lack of burst speed. High motor, unrelenting on every play which makes him a force in the run game as well.WeaknessesAs mentioned, lack of burst speed, won’t beat anyone with his quickness. Doesn’t have the ‘bend’ that many look for in edge rushers. Not the greatest open-field tackler, but likely won’t find himself in a ton of those positions.VerdictFerrell is one of the elite edge rusher prospects in this class. His size and strength is his calling card. In combination with his motor, Ferrell is solid both as a run stopper as well as a pass rusher. Has the ability to be a three-down player due to that versatility. Intelligent in his use of pass rushing moves Charles Woodson Jersey , he understands how to get the most of his long arms and hand usage. Should become a starter right away at the next level. A winner at the collegiate level, Ferrell is a natural leader and competitor and will be a nice addition to any locker room.Pro ComparisonVinny Curry or Olivier VernonFit With RaidersClelin Ferrell is the Yin to Arden Key’s Yang. While Key uses his speed rush to get to the quarterback and is a bit of a liability in run defense, Ferrell is nearly the complete opposite. The two of them together could create quite a dynamic duo, and everyone who knows anything about football understands the Raiders have a huge need at edge rusher. While drafting Ferrell at 4th overall could be a reach, he could be an option for the Raiders in a trade back scenario as site editor Levi Damien’s mock draft. Likewise for a trade up from the lower part of the first round. Also, some mock drafts have seen Ferrell fall into the 20’s where the Raiders could select him at 24th. It is more likely that Ferrell goes in the top 20, so a trade back from 4th or a trade up from 24th or 27th (both entirely possible) would be the most sensible way for Oakland to grab Ferrell.

BOSTON -- Justin Verlander gave the Detroit Tigers a quality start Monday night, and they capitalized. Cheap Nike Air Max 270 China . They could use more of that in a tightening AL Central race.Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning, Verlander pitched six solid innings and the Tigers beat the Red Sox 4-2 to spoil Drew Pomeranzs second start with Boston.Victor Martinez and James McCann also drove in runs for the Tigers. Detroit pulled within 5 1/2 games of idle AL Central-leading Cleveland.I think its start by start, Verlander said. You tend to string starts together, occasionally. Im not thinking about the last one that happened, just thinking about the next one.Verlander (10-6) allowed one run and five hits and struck out five to pick up the victory. He is 3-0 in his last five starts.Francisco Rodriguez earned his 28th save.Pomeranz (8-8), recently acquired from the San Diego Padres, gave up four hits and struck out seven in six innings. Both of the runs he allowed came via Iglesias homer.Boston, which had scored 46 runs in its last six outings, failed to homer Monday. That ended a streak of 15 straight games with at least one.Pomeranz entered Mondays start looking to bounce back from his dismal Boston debut last week against San Francisco, in which he gave up five runs in just three innings.He was cruising through five innings Monday, allowing just two hits. That changed in the sixth when Iglesias crushed Pomeranzs fastball high over the Green Monster in left for a two-run homer to put the Tigers up 2-1.It was the first career homer in Fenway for Iglesias, who started his career in Boston before being traded to Detroit in 2013.When I was here I never had the opportunity to do that so I was really happy to do that against them, he said.Iglesias scored his second run of the game in the eighth, trotting across home plate on Martinezs single off reliever Clay Buchholz to make it 4-1.I had a good curveball tonight. I was locating my fastball a lot better, Pomeranz said. I was in a lot better counts all night. I really made one bad pitch.Boston loaded the bases on three straight singles off Justin Wilson to begin its half of the eighth. A single by Sandy Leon pulled the Red Sox within 4-2, but Wilson settled down to get an out and Rodriguez came on to help end the rally.Bostons hitters had several long at-bats against Verlander, pushing his pitch count above 40 through just two innings. In the second, Travis Shaw lined a double into the right-field corner, scoring Jackie Bradley Jr.TRAINERS ROOMTigers: RHP Jordan Zimmermann, who has been sidelined since July 1 with a right neck strain, began a rehab assignment in Triple-A Toledo on Sunday night.Red Sox: CF Mookie Betts returned to the lineup Monday after missing a pair of games with right knee soreness. ... Manager John Farrell said RHP Craig Kimbrel (left knee surgery) is progressing and looked good in a short bullpen session. He could make a rehab start this weekend.KEEPING OPTIONS OPENRed Sox management is keeping its ears open to trade offers, but president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said its not something he believes must happen to make a postseason push. He thinks the bullpen, which has been battered by injuries, will bounce back when Junichi Tazawa and Kimbrel are back to full strength. I think were in position where were open-minded, but not a necessity, Dombrowski said.RETURN TRIPTigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia made his first return to Fenway Park since he left in free agency in 2013 to join the Miami Marlins. The Red Sox honored him with a video tribute after the second inning. I feel like Boston gave me my second chance, he said. I was in Texas, sitting in Triple-A and they traded for me, gave me an opportunity to play here -- kind of resurge, resurrect my career.UP NEXTTigers: RHP Mike Pelfrey (3-9, 4.78 ERA) is coming off a victory at Chicago last week, in which he allowed the White Sox just one run in 5 1/3 innings. Pelfrey hasnt allowed a home run his last eight road starts, spanning 45 1/3 innings.Red Sox: RHP Steven Wright (12-5, 2.67) has won his last four starts.

Five of the main card fighters (Shogun, Sonnen, Overeem, Browne and Faber) have all headlined UFC events in the past. Some pivotal matchups take place Saturday but the biggest matchup on TSN.ca is the return of Jordan Cieciwa who goes head-to-head with me this week with his picks. As always you can follow me (@LynchOnSports) or Jordan (@FitCityJordan) if you agree or disagree, also feel free to leave your opinions in the comment section below. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Chael Sonnen Lynch: In a fight that was rumored to save the UFC 161 card in Winnipeg, Shogun and Sonnen finally lock horns in a matchup where both fighters are looking for contender status in the 205-pound division. If Shogun had any hopes of a rematch with Jon Jones that was all shattered in his last fight as he endured a one sided beat down to current number one contender Alexander Gustafsson at UFC on FOX 5. The biggest knock on the Brazilian throughout his entire career is his conditioning, and that was evident against the Swede who looked faster and landed more shots than the former UFC light heavyweight champion. “The American Gangster” meanwhile competes in his first non-title bout since January of 2012, and aims to bounce back from his current two-fight losing streak. Conditioning has never been an issue with Sonnen, who took former middleweight champion Anderson Silva into deep waters during their first encounter and nearly won the fight. On paper the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt has all the talent in the world to defeat the former NCAA Division I wrestler, but depending on what type of shape he comes in for this fight, will determine the outcome. This is a tough fight to call as its possible Rua lands a fight ending submission on the 36-year old (who has been tapped out eight times in his career) however its also possible the Sonnen effectively secures takedowns and grinds out a decision. Overall this fight comes down to who wants it more and I believe “The Peoples Champ” is hungrier than his 31-year old foe. Sonnen via unanimous decision JC: Well the fight is finally here. I really thought this was going to happen for UFC 161, and it would have really added to the card in Winnipeg. It didnt. Now the problem remains, who shows up to this fight?  Obviously, its Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Chael Sonnen, but which Rua will we see on Saturday night?  Are we talking the "Shogun" from his Pride days, or the "Shogun" that fought Gustafsson?  At 31, Rua is still in his prime and there is no reason for him to do anything other than show up in shape and leg kick a slower, one dimensional Sonnen. Sonnen can wrestle, and he can throw strikes, but they arent pretty. Truth be told, this fight in my opinion is Ruas to lose. He can beat himself on this.  There are no better athletes than wrestlers. Sonnen will control Rua if he lets him.  Can "Shogun" keep the distance, and out strike Sonnen.  Well see, and this will be a very long drawn out fight.  Its going to look a lot like Rory MacDonald vs. Jake Ellenberger. Im hoping we see a proud Brazilian come out to knock out a loud mouth American. Rua via unanimous decision Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne Lynch: On paper this fight has all the potential of a “Knockout of the Night” fight as former Strikeforce champion Overeem squares off with 67 juggernaut Browne. The former K-1 Grand Prix Champion was embarrassed in his last fight, having been knocked out by considerable underdog Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 156. That loss immediately shattered any talk of fighting for the UFC heavyweight title and questioned the Dutch fighters use of PEDs during his career outside the UFC. “The Reem” hopes an impressive performance against the Hawaiian will prove his doubters wrong. Browne meanwhile looks to build off his impressive victory over Gabriel Gonzaga back at the TUF 17 Finale and aims for his 11th career knockout; however that might be easier said than done. The former DREAM champion is clearly the better striker having looked impressive during his tenure in K-1 kickboxing. The other factor to consider is the Dutchman has fought 49 times compared to the Jackson/Winklejohn students 15 fights. While Overeem was knocked out in his last fight, much of that had to do with his cockiness and leaving his hands down in the third round. Look for the Blackzillian fighter to be more composed and use his muay-thai to neutralize any of the knockout power Browne possesses. With whats at stake for Overeem, I see him executing a smart game plan of picking his shots and playing it safe, on route to a unanimous decision victory. Overeem via unanimous decision JC: I dont know where I stand on Alistair Overeem. Hes the scape goat for a very troubled UFC, as far as the drug allegations go. He didnt go the TRT route like a bunch of American wrestlers or Vitor Belfort. He got busted, same as Barry Bonds, in the prime of his career in a sport where no one seems innocent. If you look at Overeems career, its beyond impressive. Hes been fighting as an MMA professional since 1999, since he was 18.  His striking is world class, and he can wrestle enough to take dominant positions to throw strikes.  That all said, he looked like a rookie in his last fight against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.  You have a Dream Champion, K-1 Champion, and a threat in every fight he has been in, fighting a relative newcomer.  My money is on the new comer Browne.  "The Reem" is still going to be under the microscope for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) and I hate to say it that seems to be the secret to most of his wins. Browne has the best corner in the game, and even though I dont like the Jackson/Winklejohn camp, they produce guys who win.  All Browne has to do is be aggressive, fight smart, and control this fight. Hell catch Alistair just like Gonzaga did. Browne via 2nd round TKO Urijah Faber vs. Yuri Alcantara Lynch: Two of the top fighters in the bantamweight division clash as former WEC featherweight champion Faber meets submission ace Alcantara. “The California Kid” has taken his fight game to another level since adding striking coach Duane “Bang” Ludwig to his team, finishing his last two opponents in impressive fashion. A matchup with the Brazilian Alcantara is just another stepping stone on the path to earning a rematch with current 135-pound champ Renan Barao. While Alcantara poses a threat on the ground, this is Fabers fight to lose as he has a lot more tools in his arsenal to impose on his opponent. The step up in commpetition and the fact hes facing an opponent who outside of title fights is currently 7-0, doesnt bode well for the Brazilian. Nike Air Max 270 React Cheap. We should see Faber outwrestle the 33-year old and pick his shots at will, but not likely finish his opponent on the ground as he is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. Faber via unanimous decision JC: Im going to tape this fight and watch it in slow motion so I can actually see the guys striking. I love the Bantamweights, and hearing that Faber is adding striking into this camp in a big way has me excited to see a great match up.  Faber has always relied on his wrestling, as the whole Alpha Male team has. A win in this fight will have Faber back in the hunt for the title. Fabers wrestling and now improved striking means his only hole is the submission game.  Having been on the ground with better submission guys than Alcantara, I dont see Faber giving up an easy submission here. Im hoping to see the Faber of three or four years ago. The fearless fighter who throws crazy angle shots, spinning elbows of the cage and tries to win in explosive fashion. Faber via unanimous decision Matt Brown vs. Mike Pyle Lynch: Bet you didnt know that both Brown and Pyle combined have a winning streak of nine-straight fights inside the UFCs 170-pound weight class. Well now you do, and it should also be noted that these are two of the most underrated fighters in the UFCs welterweight division. Back in 2011 “The Immortal” was on the verge of unemployment with the UFC having lost four of his last five fights. Since then hes been on a roll, dispatching the likes of Stephen Thompson, Mike Swick and most recently Canadian prospect Jordan Mein. The Achilles heel throughout the Ohio natives career has been his ground skills, with nine of his eleven losses coming by way of submission. Because of an injury to Thiago Alves, his replacement Pyle poses an interesting threat because16 of his 25 wins has come by way of submission. In his last fight “Quicksand” narrowly squeaked out a decision over Rick Story, in a bout which he almost lost due to overwhelming strikes in the first round. Brown hits a lot harder than Story and has more tools in his arsenal to finish this fight. The TUF 7 alum should be able to avoid the mat, keep this fight standing and earn his 11th career knockout for what should be the ‘Fight of the Night Brown via second round knockout JC: GSP, Hendricks, MacDonald... Brown and Pyle? Yes folks, these boys are in that welterweight division and no one talks about them.  They dont like to lose.  Pyle is 7-1 in his last 8, his loss was to Rory MacDonald. Brown is 6-1 in his last 7.  He had a bit of a rough go in 2010 with 3 straight losses, but like any great fighter, went back to the lab and perfected his craft. Now both of these underrated fighters are poised to make a run to the top 5 and maybe a title shot.  My pick is Pyle doing everything right, getting this fight to the mat, and showing the only weakness Matt Brown seems to have, getting submitted.  Brown has a tenancy to make major mistakes on the ground and leave the cage early due to chokes. Pyle via second round submission (Guillotine) Uriah Hall vs. John Howard Lynch: TUF 17 Middleweight Tournament runner up Hall aims for his first UFC victory Saturday night when he is paired with hometown favorite Howard. With all the hype building from his spinning hook kick knockout of Adam Cella on his season of the Ultimate Fighter, Hall struggled at the TUF 17 finale, losing a split decision to eventual winner Kelvin Gastelum. One area that was greatly exposed in that loss was Halls mental struggles and his inability to stop a takedown. In matching up with a seasoned veteran like “Doomsday”, Hall will need those issues to be resolved. The 30-year old Howard meanwhile makes his return to the UFC for the first time since June 2011 and hopes to find success as a middleweight, as he previously competed inside the octagon in the 170lb division. However because of the short notice of taking this fight (replacing Josh Samman) and the fact that Hall has a three inch height and eight inch reach advantage, the edge has to go to Hall. With Howard being stopped just three times in his career, its doubtful Hall will be able to finish him, instead I think we see him play it safe, pick his shots and earn a unanimous decision victory. Hall via unanimous decision JC: Im going to assume that Uriah Hall is a hard working athlete, that he is smart and that he has a team around him who will take him back to basics and teach him how to sprawl. Hall needs to win big fights, and do it with improving his takedown defense. This fight will be interesting as its a short notice replacement fight.  Those always throw wrenches into the game plan. Hall will be ready, the jitters of the big show should be out, and my hope is he has fixed the major problem in his game. If he can stay in control with his height and reach advantage and defend the takedown, he should safely take this to the full 3 rounds. Hall via unanimous decision Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Johnson Lynch: Boston native Lauzon makes his return to the octagon after his grueling loss to Jim Miller back in December to face TUF 12 runner up Johnson. Both are coming off losses and are well rounded, so fans should expect an exciting all-out war. Lauzon has a clear advantage on the ground and should be able to submit Johnson rather easily should he be able to take this fight to the mat. The Blackzillian member has six submission losses and most likely it will be seven after Saturday night. Lauzon via second round submission. JC: Michael Johnson is making the trek from Florida where the Blackzillians train to Boston, my hope is that he has fixed his submission loss ways. Thats actually not true, I really like Joe Lauzon and want to see him win this with a submission.  Lauzon needs this win to jump back up in to the top 10 of the 155-pound division.  He has the toughness; he just hasnt won the big fights.  Lauzon with some consistency, is one of the best fighters at 155. He can dominate this one on the mat, the question is, does he get it there or does he get frustrated and let Johnson keep this one standing. We all know Lauzon can take a beating but the problem is thats just the "tough way" to lose a decision. Lauzon via unanimous decision Undercard Picks Lynch: McDonald, McGregor, Brown, Brandao, Miller, St-Preux, NijemJC: Pickett, McGregor, Brown, Brandao, Miller, Donovan, Nijem Also be sure to tune into the “Weigh-In” on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg every Saturday as Jordan and I go toe to toe in discussing the hottest topics in Mixed Martial Arts.

PARIS -- France is facing Iceland in a European Championship quarterfinal on Sunday. Fake Nike Jerseys . Here are five France players to watch:---HUGO LLORISFrances tournament would have been even more of a challenge were it not for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.He was ready from the off, making an alert save to deny Romania forward Bogdan Stancu from point-blank range in the fourth minute of Frances Euro 2016 opener.In the group stage, the Tottenham goalkeeper kept clean sheets against Albania and Switzerland, and then put in a commanding performance against Ireland in the round of 16.With Ireland 1-0 up and France under pressure, Lloris made a great save low to his left to keep out striker Daryl Murphys curling shot. And early in the second half he clawed away James McLeans fizzing cross from the left before it reached Shane Long at the back post.---SAMUEL UMTITIYoung Lyon center half Samuel Umtiti has no international experience.So, what a time to be making your France debut -- in the quarterfinals of a European Championship.With Adil Rami suspended, Umtiti is likely to be picked ahead of Manchester Citys Eliaquim Mangala, who has looked out of form in training.Umtiti is not as strong as either Mangala or Rami, but has pace and positional sense -- and he is a better passer from the back.One unanswered question. How will the 22-year-old Umtiti, who had a poor Champions League campaign this season, cope with the pressure?---PAUL POGBAFrance is still waiting for a commanding performance from its midfield star Paul Pogba.Considered among the most sought after players in football, he is constantly linked with a move away from Juventus, where he has won four straight Italian titles.But while the 22-year-old Pogba often lights up the Italian league, he rarely does the same for France. Aside from a dynamic first-half performance against Switzerland, where he twice hit the crossbar with shots from distance, he has been a disappointment at Euro 2016.Backing up Pogba is teammate Patrice Evra, who says hell be there for us when we really need him.French fans hope Evras right.---ANTOINE GRIEZMANNForward Antoine Griezmann has shaken off a lethargic start to become the spearhead of Frances attack.Griezmann looked sloppy in the opening game against Romania, squandering two golden chances to score.Coach Didier Deschamps then dropped him for the next game against Albania.If that was a wake-up call for the highly-rated Atletico Madrid forward, then it worked.Griezmann came off the bench to break the deadlock against Albania with a sharp 90th-minute header, and then scored twice in quick succession against Ireland last weekend to overturn a 1-0 halftime deficit.He seems to be timing it right for France.---OLIVIER GIROUDReplacing Real Madrid star Karim Benzema as Frances center forward was never going to be easy for Olivier Giroud.But, Giroud is slowing winning fans over -- though not for his goal scoring feats. Although Giroud headed France in front in the opening game against Romania, he has squandered golden chances since then.He impressed in the round of 16 come-from-behind victory against Ireland. His excellent headed lay-off set up Griezmann for the winning goal. He also put Griezmann clean through late on with a cushioned pass only for Griezmann to miss a great chance for a hat trick.The 29-year-old Giroud may never blossom into a lethal finisher, but he is unselfish and contributes through his astute link play.

Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed.After our Top 10 offensive draft picks , we thought it was high time to do the top defensive draft picks. So heres Alex Ferguson on who the selectors should get defensively… Top offensive players View From America... Myles Jack (OL, UCLA) Myles Jack [right] in defensive mode Myles Jack was such a terrific athlete that he also played running back for the Bruins when they really needed one, and was pretty successful. Unfortunately, a knee injury this year caused question marks about his future. But if Jack stays healthy, hes going to be a bona fide NFL hit. Joey Bosa (DE, Ohio State) Joey Bosa shines in the snow Described by college football expert Sean Fitz as a future first round pick, Bosa didnt do anything to make people think differently in his final year. Hes the sort of guy who can control offensive lines at the line of scrimmage - although there are questions about how well he turns a corner to get at a quarterback. Still, hes a fine tackler (five sacks, 51 tackles) and was highly thought-of by the college football gods (two All-American selections).Jalen Ramsey (S, Florida State) Jalen Ramsey [right] dives through the air to make a tackle When I first saw Ramsey play in college I thought that he was a future star, and things havent changed since - apart from his production fell a little bit this year as the ball was thrown away from him towards his other secondary colleagues. Hes 60, and has incredible jumping skills. Cant wait for him against the Odell Beckhams of the NFL.Vernon Hargreaves (CB, Florida) Vernon Hargreaves #1 defends a pass Like Ramsey, he didnt see a lot of offences go anywhere near him in his final year - but when they did, it was generally a schoolboy error (he had four INTs and earned an All-American spot).Reggie Ragland (IL, Alabama) Reggie Ragland #19 knocks an opponents helmet off Ragland was the linchpin of Alabamas National Championship victory, and he was a brilliant tackler (102 tackles) and could also get to the quarterback (2.5 saccks). Fake Jerseys Online. He could also put the pass away (seven passes defended) and was a huge leader on an Alabama team full of leaders. Some teams will be begging Ragland to drop further.Shaq Lawson (DE, Clemson) Shaq Lawson #90 attempts a sack When Lawson was missing for Clemson, you knew it. That was how good Lawson was. Armed with great brights, a 63, 270lbs frame and he led the NCAA in tackles for loss. So he was pretty good at getting through offensive lines, then.DeForest Buckner (DE, Oregon) DeForest Buckner #44 battles two opponents Buckner shone on one of the worst defences in college football (117th out of 128) which gave up 62, 55, and 47 points in just three games. It was that awful defence because the 67, big-handed Buckner was double-teamed all the way through the season and still managed 80 tackles. His biggest game was when it mattered in the showdown with Stanford when he had 10 tackles and a sack in a freakish performance.Sheldon Rankins (DT, Louisville) Sheldon Rankins makes a tackle Called an interior disruptor by the US media, Rankins biggest game was against the ACCs best team - Clemson, in which he had eight tackles and a sack. He had five tackles and a sack in the bowl game against one of the next best teams in Texas A&M, too.Eli Apple (CB, Ohio State) Eli Apple dives in for a tackle Another of the very talented players coming from Ohio State, Apple was another cornerback who found himself thrown away from - grabbing just one interception and 33 tackles all season while the year before he had three and 53. Hes a physical defender that might need some coaching-up before hes the real thing. But hes still very good.Robert Nkemdiche (DE, Ole Miss) Robert Nkemdiche grabs onto his man Nkemdiche is an intelligent ballplayer whos going to destroy offensive lines when he gets to the NFL. Arguably, hes better than Joey Bosa, but questions over his character issues mean that he gets a 5 on talent but a 5 on the Worry Factor, too.  Also See: How to watch the NFL Draft Sky Sports Digital mock draft NFL Draft: Beginners guide WATCH: Dreaming of the NFL ' ' '

Rory McIlroy believes he needs to improve his mental approach despite a strong finish to a frustrating week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Air Max 270 Black Wholesale . The four-time major champion went in to the final round 16 shots adrift of Jason Day after a disappointing week at Bay Hill, but carded two eagles and five birdies to close with an encouraging seven-under 65.McIlroy was never in contention for a first win of the season after Fridays second-round 67 was sandwiched between two 75s, while a double-bogey at the 14th during the final round was his sixth of the week and his most ever in a PGA Tour event.  The world No 3 has carded more double-bogeys this week than any other tournament in his PGA Tour career I cant keep beating myself up mentally, McIlroy told Sky Sports. Thats something that Ive done this week for hitting bad shots and making mistakes. If I can be just a bit better mentally then hopefully thatll be the key for me.Even today I threw in a double-bogey, which has been the story of not just my week, but my season so far. I just need to eradicate the mistakes.If I can get rid of those mistakes and play some of the golf that I have been playing, then theres no reason why I cant go on and content a lot of weeks this year.McIlroy followed a long-range birdie at the second with back-to-back gains from the fourth, before chipping in to eagle the sixth and picking up another stroke at the ninth. McIlroy carded two eagles during his final round After reaching the turn in 30, McIlroy struggled to make further movement up the leaderboard and ran up a double-bogey at the short 14th.However, the world No 3 recovered well to post a second eagle at the par-5 sixth before finishing his week by draining a long-range birdie from almost 60 feet.Bryson [DeChambeau] and myself both got off to a great start, McIlroy said. I think we fed off one another early on and we were just trying to keep it going.I hit a little bit of a lull at the start of the back nine when I was really trying to push on and make a few more birdies but made up for that with my finish on the last three holes. Rory McIlroy sinks a monster birdie putt to end his final round at Bay Hill on 65 Its a nice way to round off the week. I was really disappointed coming off the course yesterday after feeling like my game was in really good shape coming here.Weve seen glimpses of that this week with a 67 which could have been a lot better on Friday and then a 65 today.McIlroy is back in action next week when he attempts to defend his WGC Dell Match Play title, in what will be his final appearance before next months Masters.Its all about Augusta, the 26-year-old added. Next week is a bit of a weird week for my final competitive week going into Augusta, but it will be great to get some matches under my belt.Match play is like being in contention on a weekend from the very first hole so I think thats going to be a great thing for me to see if I can play this sort of golf under pressure when I need to.I am excited for next week but obviously looking ahead, Im very excited for Augusta.

DARTMOUTH, Nova Scotia -- Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby admitted he went to bed too early the last time he celebrated a Stanley Cup victory in his hometown of Cole Harbour in 2009. Custom Juventus Jerseys .He wont make the same mistake twice when he brings the Cup home again on July 15-16.I was pretty happy with what I did in those few days [in 2009], to be honest with you. I couldnt believe I squeezed that much in two days, Crosby said with a smile. I didnt know there was enough time to get that much in. If anything, I went to bed pretty early the first night because I got the Cup early and had a really early morning, starting out the next day, and I told myself Im not going to go to bed that early next time. Im going to find a way to get through those two days with as little sleep as possible. Im going to enjoy it.Going back to 09, we thought it was going to be an annual thing, so this time I appreciate it a little more and Ill make sure I spend every second I possibly can with it.Bringing the Cup back here to celebrate with the community that helped mold him into a two-time Stanley Cup champion and Conn Smythe winner was a no-brainer.It just feels right, Crosby said.Hes spending the first part of his week running his second annual hockey camp. There are 160 kids from all around the world attending the camp, and Crosbys hands-on when it comes to all activities, both on and off the ice, Monday through Friday. It will conclude with a Stanley Cup parade.Weve got a lot of things planned, Crosby said with a smile. I dont know if I want to necessarily going into details, but we have a lot of things planned. The biggest thing is you want to enjoy it, it goes by quick. You try to get it to as many people as possible, let as many people enjoy it because, for me, thats one of the best parts just seeing the reaction on peoples faces. A lot of times people who dont necessarily expect to see it and sometimes thats the best part of it. Itll be a busy schedule, but theres lots on it.Crosby acknowledged the parade will be a bit shorter than it was in 2009, but other than that, he expects it to be similar.Im hoping its a great turnout, he said. I know last time it was. I know people are excited from the people Ive talked to, so its pretty special to be bringing it all the way through here and down to the rink. Its really nice and Im expecting it to be a lot of fun.The parade kicks off at 10:30 a.m., but locals begin to camp out as early as 6 a.m. to get a glimpse of their hometown boy with the Stanley Cup.The Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks in six games to hoist hockeys sacred chalice on June 12. It was the second title for Crosby and his third trip (2008) to the finals.You appreciate it more, Crosby said. Having gone seasons where you fall up short, and there are high expectations, this year is kind of different season, the way it went -- a story of two teams, really. Having gone through those things in the past, I probably appreciate it more.Along with running his hockey camp, preparing for a two-day celebration, Crosby also said he started working out again in preparation for the 2016-17 season this week.Its a pretty short summer, and thats the challenge for going deep into the playoffs, Crosby said. Youve got to find a way to manage the work and rest at the same time. With the World Cup being right around the corner, itll be a busy summer, but I feel like a big part of why I come home is you get that feel of being relaxed even though youre training and youre around friends and family, you get away from things a little bit, and thats definitely important.As far as a return trip to the Stanley Cup finals in 2017, Crosby hopes thats the case, but he also understands how difficult it is to reach that point of the season, let alone win back-to-back championships. In fact, the Detroit Red Wings were the last team to accomplish the feat in 1996-97 and 1997-98.Yeah, Id love to be back, he said. Its not too easy. You dont see too many teams do it. We were able to [return in back-to-back seasons] in 08-09 and its really a tough road, especially when youre talking about World Cup right around the corner and a lot of hockey to be played. Its going to be a challenge, but you do understand its tough to get there and its something you try to take in as much as you can when you win it.

When I feel healthy and ready to go, Ill feel ready to go. ... Ive gone through this before; my body will tell me best how Ill feel.Roethlisberger was limited in practice Wednesday as he battles back from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Oct. 17, and he hopes to play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.He ran with the first-team unit and dropped back to throw several times.Roethlisberger, 34, missed four games with a sprained MCL last year. He said that controlling the knee swelling will be important this week, as well as being able to feel comfortable out there, protect myself.He lookeed like himself.

GB sprinter Dina Asher-Smith hopes her poor show at the Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix is the wake-up call needed for this years Olympics in Rio. Fake Balenciaga 2020 . The 20-year-old Londoner has high hopes as she prepares for this summers Games but was downcast after finishing sixth in a womens 60 metres final won by world 200m champion Dafne Schippers in 7.10 seconds.Asher-Smith, who could only clock 7.25 secs - eight hundredths of a second slower than her heat time, said: It was not good. In fact it was really bad. I dont like not performing to the best of my ability. I dont know where it went wrong so Ill talk to my coach.

West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI 180 and 26 for 1 (Ashwin 1-14) trail Indians 364 (Rahul 64, Jadeja 56, Kohli 51, Cornwall 5-118) by 158 runsScorecardWhile KL Rahul struck his second consecutive half-century of the tour, captain Virat Kohli and allrounder Ravindra Jadeja also struck form with fifties on the second day of the warm-up match against West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI in Basseterre. Rowland Office Jersey . All of Indias batsmen except Shikhar Dhawan, who made a fifty in the first match, scored in double digits as the visitors made 364 to lead the hosts by 184 in the first innings. They looked set to score more when Rahul and Kohli were batting but offspinner Rahkeem Cornwalls five-for restricted them.Resuming the second day at 93 for 3, the Indians were led by Rahul who marched from his overnight 30 to score 64 before retiring out. Rahul and Kohli put on a partnership of 88 for the fourth wicket as Kohli scored 51. But the captain was dismissed soon after Rahul retired, lbw to Cornwall, who had also dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara the night before.That was the purpose of coming here early to get used to the wickets and conditions and Im really happy with the way Ive batted in the last two innings, Rahul said after the days play. The wickets here have been hard, the weather is hot and humid so its not very easy to go out there and get runs but [Ill] try to use these two innings and the time before the Tests to prepare well for the Test series. So Im really happy with the way Im prepared.Out here it was a little slow and the outfields heavy and the ball is getting really soft after 20-30 overs, so getting runs is kind of hard.Ajinkya Rahane then led the visitors past 250 as Stuart Binny was caught behind for 16 off Cornwall. Rahane too fell to the same bowler for 32. The Indians were 254 for 7 and Wridhhiman Sahas run-out made it 298 for 8. The innings was revived by Jadeja, who came in at No. 9, as he scored 56 off 61 with eight fours. He first put on 44 with Saha and then 47 with R Ashwin, who scored a patient 26 off 61. Jadeja was eventually caught and bowled by Cornwall, who finished with 5 for 118.The pitch is offering a little bit so you have to be consistent with your lines, Cornwall said. No nerves whatsoever [against a strong batting line-up], I back my skills to do what I have to do and at the end of the day were playing a game of cricket, so they have to bat and I have to put the balls in the right areas.It is very special, they are top quality batsmen, you have to do your best against them. This will take me a long way. Once you perform against the best, it will always urge you to perform better. This game taught me a lot - I think patience and the way some of these guys carry themselves. It kept me to go and improve on my game.The hosts batted for eight overs before stumps and lost opener Leon Johnson, caught and bowled by Ashwin, for 17 in the last over of the day. They were 26 for 1 at the end of the day and trailed by 158 runs. Jim Bouton Jersey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Chris Martin Braves Jersey .

SALT LAKE CITY -- The goal for No. Cheap Nike Shoes From China . 11 Utah was clear this season -- win the Pac-12 South Division. The Utes have trended upward since joining the league in 2011, but have yet to play in the championship game.Their hopes of doing so this season ended Saturday.Justin Herbert hit Darren Carrington for a 17-yard touchdown pass with two seconds remaining to give Oregon a 30-28 upset victory over the Utes.A chance to win the South, thats the next step for our program, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. We won nine games two years ago, 10 games last year. Were winning games. Weve won more games in the Pac-12 than any team in the Pac-12 over the last three years. But the next hurdle, the next step is to win a South title. Thats what we need to do.Herbert led the Ducks (4-7, 2-6 Pac-12), who have struggled all season and suffered several lopsided losses, on a 10-play, 75-yard drive in just over two minutes, capping it with the TD pass to Carrington. Carrington was initially called out of bounds but that call was reversed after a replay showed he got a foot down in bounds.Oh man! Carrington said. Big-time players make big-time plays and it was definitely time to make a big-time play so I just had to come through in the clutch for my boys. I just turned and saw the ball in the air and went and got it. I had no idea the ball was coming until it was up in the air.The Utes (8-3, 5-3, No. 12 CFP) blitzed on the final play and left man-to-man coverage on the outside.Disappointing to say the least, Whittingham said. (Oregon) made the plays when they had to be made. We were not able to make those plays. Second half, couldnt get a stop on defense when we needed to. Couldnt put a dagger in their heart when we could have on offense.The Utes had taken a 28-24 lead with 2:18 remaining off a Troy Williams 30-yard touchdown pass but the Ducks then began their comeback drive.Ive got some of the best receivers in the country out there, so I trust them to make catches like that, said Herbert, who finished the game with 324 yards passing and three TDs. He also scored on a one-yard run in the fourth quarter.Royce Freeman led the Ducks ground game with 129 yards. He also scored on a one-yard pass from Herbert early in the fourth.Carrington had a quiet day until the game-winning catch, finishing with 37 yards on five receptions.Joe Williams rushed for 149 yards and a touchdown for Utah. The normally stout Utes defense gave up 575 yards of offense to Oregon.That was a long, long, long, long review, Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said about the final play. There would have been a lot of questions if that wasnt ruled a touchdown. Our guys drove on an excellent defense in the fourth quarter in their stadium, down, but stared it right the face.POLL IMPLICATIONSUTAH: The Utes will fall from No. 11 after the loss to an Oregon team that is still three games shy of .500 and wont reach it this year. The Utes, however, should stay in the Top 25.OREGON: Will remain on the outside looking in.THE TAKEAWAYOREGON: The Ducks are still simply running out the clock. Even with a win against Oregon State in the season finale, Oregon would fall shy of the six normally needed to be bowl eligible. This would be the first time since 2004 that Oregon missed a bowl game.UTAH: The Utes lost control of their own destiny. After the Oregon loss, Utah needed Colorado to lose to Washington State to remain in the hunt for the Pac-12 South Division. Colorado won 38-24 on Saturday. The race is now down to Colorado and USC, which beat the Buffaloes 21-17 in October to earn the tiebreaker.SACK KINGUtah defensive end Hunter Dimick set the schools career sack record in the first quarter with a sack of Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert. He wasnt done there, picking up sack No. 2 later on the same drive. He finished the day with two sacks after entering the day tied for the nation high with 12. The record is now set at 29 and Dimick has 14 this season.EJECTEDOregon starting receiver Charles Nelson was ejected midway through the second quarter after being called for targeting. Nelson peeled back for a block on Justin Thomas as Herbert ran around the right end. Nelsons shoulder pads mostly hit Thomas in the chest, but there was some contact between his helmet and Thomas facemask. Nelson entered the game with a team-high 47 receptions and 501 receiving yards.UP NEXTOREGON: The Ducks wrap up the season against in-state rival Oregon State in the Civil War.UTAH: The Utes travel to face No. 12 Colorado next Saturday.---For more college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Cheap Nike Shoes For Sale .

LONDON -- Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says the heavy offseason spending by some of his teams rivals for the Premier League title is a sign of desperation. Soccer Jerseys 2020 .Manchester City and Manchester United have spent around $200 million each on new players, with Paul Pogba completing his return to Old Trafford this week for a world-record fee of $116 million. Tottenhams only signings have been Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen for a combined $40 million.Pochettino says when you spend a lot of money, its because you are worried about your squad and desperate to improve it. Im very happy with my players and because of that Im very quiet and relaxed. I trust my squad 100 percent.Tottenham finished in third place last season, ahead of City and United. Jermaine Marrow Jersey . The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the teams home loss to Memphis on Thursday night. Nike NCAA Jerseys 2020 .com) - Richie Incognito has reportedly been admitted to a psychiatric care unit in Arizona. https://www.cheapmlbjerseysjustwholesale.com/ .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. Aroldis Chapman may finally have some competition for the title of baseballs hardest-throwing pitcher.Of course, the Cuban left-hander raised the bar even higher over the past week.Chapman reached 105.1 mph on July 18, matching the fastest pitch since Major League Baseball started tracking speeds in 2008. Chapman -- whose stint with the New York Yankees ended Monday when he was traded to the Chicago Cubs -- threw 13 pitches of at least 104 mph from last Monday through Saturday. Nobody in baseball had reached that mark all season until then.Chapmans fastball has been in a class by itself -- to the point that MLB.com has a Chapman Filter on its Statcast leaderboard in case fans want to view the list of fastest pitches without him included. For the rest of this season, however, he might have some company. Mauricio Cabrera, a 22-year-old right-hander who made his major league debut for the Atlanta Braves in late June, reached 103.8 mph on July 18 against Cincinnati.The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Cabrera is 1-0 with a 2.19 ERA in 12 appearances, although all that power has led to only seven strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings. Through Sunday, Cabreras four-seam fastball averaged 100.7 mph, which was actually ahead of Chapmans average four-seamer of 100.5.MLB rolled out its Statcast system last year, and fans can look up leaderboards for pitch speeds and other interesting categories. The longest home run of the season belongs to Nomar Mazara of Texas (491 feet on May 25), and the highest exit velocity was 123.9 mph off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton on June 9.That figure didnt come on one of Stantons prodigious homers, by the way. It came on a double-play grounder.Seattles Nelson Cruz has the highest average exit velocity at 95.8 mph, and Philadelphia catcher Cameron Rupp is seecond at 95. Jordan Roland Jersey. 1. Rupps slugging percentage has jumped from .374 in 2015 to .487 this year.Here are a few other developments from around baseball:BUY OR SELL?The Aug. 1 deadline for trades without waivers is now a week away, and several teams are occupying that shaky middle ground where its hard to say how aggressive theyll be. Through Sunday, the Tigers, Yankees, Mariners, Royals and White Sox were all between four and 6 1/2 games of a wild card in the American League.In the NL, the situation seems a bit more clear cut, with almost every team either firmly in the hunt for a playoff spot or way behind. The only exception is probably Colorado, which is six games behind a wild card, but the Rockies have a ways to go before establishing themselves as contenders. Theyve gone 7-3 since the All-Star break against a schedule that included seven games against Atlanta and three against Tampa Bay.FANTASY FOCUSThe trade deadline often leads to significant upheaval among closer jobs as relievers get dealt. With Chapman traded, for example, look for save opportunities to start falling Andrew Millers way again in New York. (Thats assuming Miller isnt also dealt.)LINE OF THE WEEKHanley Ramirez homered three times for Boston in an 11-7 victory over San Francisco on Wednesday night. He actually had three home runs by the sixth inning but grounded out to the pitcher in the eighth.Ramirez has 13 homers on the season after going deep Saturday and Sunday. Hes also played in 90 of Bostons 96 games -- a significant fact since Ramirez hasnt played more than 128 games in a season since 2012.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister ' ' '

He went 12 for 16 in the series and started in the outfield for the first time since 2008.Since going 1 for 15 in a four-game set with Cleveland on June 2-5, Morales has been on fire. He was hitting .191 on June 5, but has gone 32 of 69 since to push his average to .262.I felt like before, I was making good contact, Morales said.

His 456-foot drive in the eighth inning off Tyler Lyons ties him for the longest home run by a visiting player at Busch Stadium III, which opened in 2006.Kansas City reliever Dillon Gee (3-2) picked up the win allowing one run in two innings.Moss ripped his 17th homer of the season off Royals starter Chris Young, who gave up one run and one hit over four innings, but walked six.The drive, which went 477 feet according to the Cardinals, is the longest in the history of Busch Stadium. It is the second-longest this season behind Giancarlo Stantons 490-foot blast for Miami on May 6, in a 6-4 win over Philadelphia.I hit it hard, Moss said. I know Im strong and I know how far I can hit it when I get a hold of one.Leake gave up three runs, two earned, in seven innings. He struck out four and walked one.There were a couple of pitches Id like to take back, Leake said.Kansas City pushed across an unearned run in the first before Jarrod Dyson doubled in Alcides Escobar in the second.Gees victory gives the Royals bullpen a 16-5 (.762) mark, the highest percentage in the majors. His lone mistake came to Peralta in the sixth inning.Im just glad I was able to do the job, Gee said. I felt good.Matheny was ejected in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Mike Everitt.

Representative forward Aidan Guerra faces an uncertain future at Sydney Roosters after being dumped from the Tricolours side for their NRL clash with North Queensland. Air Max 720 Scontate .Guerra played all three games in Queenslands State of Origin series triumph this year, but has been well down on form for the Roosters.The star back-rower admitted in camp for the Maroons that he feared being dropped after Origin I due to his disappointing NRL form.Guerra put in arguably his worst effort of the season in the Roosters round 22 loss to Penrith on Monday, a performance that forced the hand of coach Trent Robinson.The 28-year-old has been named as 18th man for Sundays match with the Cowboys.Mitchell Aubusson has been preferred in the back row, with Isaac Liu and Ryan Matterson named on the bench ahead of the one-time Kangaroos representative.Robinson has shown hes moving to shake up his squad ahead of next season, with just four games remaining in 2016.Kiwis prop Sam Moa is off contract and appears unlikely to be retained, and the 2013 premiership-winning coach has indicated its also unlikely Jackson Hastings will be under contract at Bondi next season.There have been suggestions Guerra, who is under contract through 2017, could be moved on as well.NSW star Boyd Cordner backed Robinsons decision to axe Guerra.The hardest thing about being coach is making those decisions, Cordner said on Wednesday.Everyone respects Robbo here at the club, so whatever his decision is we back him 100 per cent of the way.I am sure there is a reason behind it. We are just looking at finishing the season off on a high and getting some momentum heading into next year.Commentators blamed Guerra directly for three of the tries the Roosters allowed in their 38-18 loss to the Panthers.But Cordner said Guerra would be fighting to return to first grade.He is a professional, Im sure he will understand. It has been tough on the side losing games, Cordner said.He is a class act, he is an Origin player, he has played for his country. I am sure he will work hard to get back into the team. Air Max Shop Online Italia .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Scarpe Lebron James 2019 . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. http://www.airmaxshoponlineitalia.it/scontate-max-95-outlet.html . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- When designated hitter Kendrys Morales started the season slowly, Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost stuck with him.The patience paid off. Morales is hitting .342 with nine home runs and 25 RBI in his past 31 games.Yost said he is absolutely showing the same perseverance with Alex Gordon, who was hitting .200 after going 0-for-4 on Tuesday, striking out twice and failing to get the ball out of the infield.Gordon did not start Wednesday but did deliver a pinch double. After an off-day Thursday, which included the Royals visiting the White House, Gordon walked and tripled in his first two plate appearances in a 3-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night. It was Gordons first triple since Aug. 17, 2004 at Minnesota.Gordy is a guy that puts everything he has into his game, Yost said. You ask players every single day to come in and be prepared and just give your very best effort every day. As a manager, you take what comes with that, you know good or bad. All they can do is give their best effort. And he does that with the best of them.But he also gets a little frustrated with himself and it kind of compounds the problem a little bit. He wants to be productive. I could see him really starting to grind. When you break out, youre going to break out. Hes just too good of a player not to. He hasnt forgotten how to hit.Gordon, who was a free agent this past winter, signed a four-year, $72 million contract to stay with the club that drafted him second overall in 2005. That is the richest contract ever given a Royals player.He said the contract doesnt have anything to do with it, Yost said. Gordy is a guy; he wants to make sure that youre getting your end of the bargain. You know what Im saying. And hes just right now pressing and getting a little bit frustrated.Does Gordon appear to be standing more upright and diving at balls across the plate?Those are questions I cant answer, articulatory, Yost said. Dale (Sveum, hitting coach) can. Dale has got some ideas that can help him. But like a lot of good players that have had success, they can be a little bit stubborn. They dont blow with the wind, which makes them successful.They are not always trying to tweak and change and do stuff like that. Him and Dale they talk and are trying to figure out what can helpp him be more productive. Vapormax Outlet Italia. Gordon, who has struck out 72 times in 219 at-bats, did not strike out Wednesday on a night when Yu Darvish struck out 11 in six innings.You cant find a whole lot negative with Yus start tonight, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said.Keone Kela and rookie left-hander Jake Diekman each pitched a scoreless inning after Darvish was removed after 91 pitches. Kela gave up a career-worst four runs in one inning on Monday in a loss at the Angels. Diekman was pitching for the first time since July 5 at Boston and going on the disabled list with a lacerated left index finger.It was great to see Keone rebound from the outing in Anaheim, flooding the strike zone with a big fastball, Banister said. It was 97-98 mile per hour, a breaking ball and a double play ball, something he doesnt get a whole lot of.And then to have Jake Diekman and do what he did, to give us an opportunity there. Those two guys are going to play big for us down the stretch out of our bullpen.The two teams meet again Saturday night in the middle game of the weekend series. The Rangers lead over the Houston Astros has dwindled to 2 1/2 games in the AL West. With the victory and the Cleveland loss, the Royals picked up a game on the Indians but are still eight games back in the AL Central.Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura, who starts Saturday, walked a major league-leading 33 in his first nine starts, 6.10 per nine innings. In his past nine starts, however, Ventura has allowed just eight free passes in 52 2/3 innings, 1.37 per nine innings. That ratio ranks third lowest in the AL during that span.The Rangers will counter with All-Star left-hander Cole Hamels. This will be first time to appear in a regular-season game at Kauffman Stadium. He did throw a perfect inning there in the 2012 All-Star Game, retiring Billy Butler, Matt Wieters and Adam Jones. He worked a scoreless inning in this years All-Star game in San Diego.The Rangers are 14-5 in Hamels starts this season, including winning seven of his past eight. He struck out the first six Chicago Cubs he faced in his Sunday start, a 4-1 victory, allowing four hits and one unearned run in eight innings. ' ' '

Jason Roy stayed true to his positive instincts as England turned in the complete performance to qualify for Sundays World Twenty20 final, says Nasser Hussain. Ray Schalk White Sox Jersey . Opener Roy averaged just 12 in T20 cricket on Englands tour of South Africa this winter but hit back to smash a career-best 78 in a seven-wicket semi-final victory.England were absolutely brilliant throughout - it was the complete performance, said former England captain Hussain. I applaud the selectors for what theyve done with Jason Roy. After the tour that he had in South Africa, where his T20 stats were poor, past regimes would have dropped him out for James Vince.But they stuck with him and Roy has stayed true to himself and this new England and said Im not going to play for myself, Im going to play for the team in this carefree attitude and thats come through. That positive instinct shone through and he was absolutely outstanding. Kumar Sangakkara and Michael Atherton discuss Englands semi-final win over New Zealand and the performance of Jason Roy In the past we were fearful of picking players like Roy, Hales, Rashid for fear of upsetting our Test match boys - almost rewarding Test match performance with limited overs caps.The selectors have picked them now and the coaching staff and Eoin Morgan have given them licence to go out and express themselves.Theyve had some hurdles, losing in South Africa, and they didnt play particularly well against the West Indies but they are gaining momentum.A little over a year ago they were being blasted by Brendon McCullums New Zealand in the 50-over World Cup - they were given a lesson.Today they gave New Zealand a lesson. Thats how much theyve turned it around. Sometimes you fluke wins in T20, today they walloped them. Previously unbeaten New Zealand posted a below-target of 153-8 after scoring just 64-7 from the last 10 overs of their innings as Ben Stokes (3-26) and Chris Jordan made runs hard to come by.The bowling attack has improved with every game. England were all over the place with the new ball in South Africa and I think even they would admit they didnt bowl particularly well, said Hussain.Then you see how they were in the second 10 overs today; it wasnt just straight yorkers, there were also the wide yorkers to Munro.It was clever - theyd done their planning and realised that this lad sets himself. They got their plans right and put them into practice well.Jordan - probably one of the best death bowlers since Darren Gough and Andrew Flintoff - absolutely nailed his yorkers.Watch England in Sundays World Twenty20 Final live on Sky Sports 2 this Sunday from 1.30pm.

Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. Herb Score Jersey . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. https://www.cheapwhitesox.com/3704e-yolmer-sanchez-jersey-white-sox.html .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament.WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg won a duel with Cole Hamels, Bryce Harper aggravated a knee, and the Washington Nationals managed to score five runs in an inning for the first time this season. Still, it is not enough for Davey Johnson to start shaving. Sundays 6-1 win kept Washington above .500 and ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East. Strasburg (3-5), who has pitched better than his record indicates, struck out a season-high nine and walked one in eight innings. Philadelphia scored its only run in the eighth on Strasburgs first big league balk. Hes allowed three earned runs in his last four starts, lowering his ERA to 2.49 in a season when his offensive support has been so lacking that the Nationals manager vowed to put away his razor until it improves. "The last two starts are probably the best weve seen him since weve been here in the big leagues," Washingtons Ian Desmond said. "Obviously the punch-outs and all the stuff that came before are great, but hes starting to figure it out on another level. Hes a young guy growing up." Washington set a season high for runs in an inning in the seventh, breaking open a scoreless game by putting up five against Hamels (1-8) with the help of an infield hit and a couple of errors. The key moment was a broken-bat dribbler to third by Jhonatan Solano with the bases loaded. Michael Young charged the ball but made a low throw to home, and the ball scooted away as two runners scored. Steve Lombardozzi followed with a two-run double that chased Hamels. "A couple of weeks ago, they probably would have turned a double play on that swinging bunt by Solano somehow, someway," Desmond said. "Things are starting to unfold. Were starting to play the game better." But not enough for Johnson to shave. He said the facial hair is "getting close" to coming off, but pitcher Gio Gonzalez lobbied otherwise, tellling the manager: "Its not shaggy enough. Hugh Duffy White Sox Jersey. " Washington might have to play without Harper for a while after he banged his left knee three times, twice with headfirst slides in the first inning. He slid into second on an infield hit-and-error, then hit the dirt again with a steal of third. He was removed for pinch runner in the seventh. "Hell probably be down a few days," Johnson said. "I dont know if theres fluid on the knee or what, but he was certainly gimpy." Harper initially hurt the knee running into a Dodger Stadium wall on May 13. He quickly answered "no" when asked whether he expected to miss any playing time. "It probably wont get better until the off-season," he said. "Ive just got to deal with the pain." Hamels (1-8) had his latest no-support outing, striking out six and allowing only three hits through six innings. He has lost five straight starts, has had only 20 runs of support scored all season when hes been in the game and hasnt pitched with a lead since April 7. "Were having a hard time scoring for him and it definitely seems like things arent going his way right now," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "Its something hes got to just battle through. I dont know what to tell him except keep pitching, keep battling through and itll change." NOTES: Hamels and Strasburg accounted for half of the games hits through six innings. ... Phillies 1B Kevin Frandsen spiked his bat and was immediately ejected by plate umpire Mike Winters after getting called for a check-swing strike three in the fourth inning. Frandsens first at-bat was also memorable: He took a 95 mph fastball from Strasburg in the hand and chest while trying to bunt for a hit. ... The Phillies activated RHP Mike Adams (right back strain) from the 15-day DL and optioned RHP B.J. Rosenberg to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. ' ' '

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson hasnt made an official decision about his starting quarterback yet, but he seems to be closing in on one. Cheap Yeezy 350 v2 Static .After Robert Griffin III delivered a solid scrimmage performance for the second straight day during an afternoon, non-contact workout at Ohio Stadium, the depth chart appears to be taking shape. But Jackson isnt ready to make a definitive call quite yet.Oh, Im close, very close, Jackson said Saturday. Well know here pretty soon exactly what were doing. Im going to go back and talk to the people that I trust, that I spend a lot of time with making these kinds of decisions, and well move forward.As the Browns press on in training camp, the next step is preparing for Fridays preseason game at Green Bay. And after Griffin tossed a pair of touchdowns in the Horseshoe one night after delivering a handful of big plays in a more meaningful scrimmage, he appears to be on track to claim that starting job.On Saturday, he was the first quarterback on the field and again took the majority of the first-team reps.But like Jackson, Griffin was in no rush for the Browns to solidify his standing in his battle with Josh McCown.Its just about coming out every day and proving it, Griffin said. You know, we want to make sure that everybody earns their spot, earns their keep, and thats everybodys goal every time they step on the field. They want to put their best foot forward and show Coach what they can do, and he believes in all of us.Its a lot of fun every day to just go out and prove it.Griffin is building a strong case, even if the latest evidence in a relatively low-stakes visit to Ohio States campus will pale in comparison with the tests coming up in live settings against an actual opponent.So Jackson will continue to wait on reaching a verdict, at least for now.I think Ive said every day, everybody is seeing [Griffin] get better and better every day, Jackson said. Im not surprised. Were trying to create the right environment for him to be all he can be, and I think hes working extremely hard because this is something he really wants to do. Obviously, weve still got work to do, but I think hes done a great job thus far.There are still some ladders to climb, and were going to keep climbing. Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Supreme Black/Red .

PETERSBURG, Fla. Chances are youve heard of Spartan race, Tough Mudder or Warrior Dash -- and maybe youve even done one. Obstacle course races (OCR) have become all the rage the past few years. Just last year, an estimated 4.5 million Americans participated in one, according to SportsBusiness Journal.Whether obstacle-course races are your forte or youre toying with the idea of trying one for the first time, youll want to fuel up differently than you do for a typical race.We spoke with Bob Seebohar, MS, RD, CSSD, a sports dietitian, exercise physiologist and owner of eNRG Performance in Littleton, Colorado, about the ins and outs of OCR nutrition. Here are his tips for maintaining your energy from start to finish.Balance your prerace mealEveryone is different when it comes to fueling before a race. Some people can have solid foods and be fine, while others need only liquids so they dont upset their stomachs.Whether you choose to go with solids or something like a smoothie, you must have a good source of carbs, a slightly lower source of protein and an even lower source of fat, said Seebohar, who is also the nutrition coach for Clif Bar.Think 50 percent carbs, 30 percent protein and 20 percent fat.?You could have anything from oatmeal with protein powder and some nut butter to a smoothie (for those with a more sensitive stomach) thats fruit based, with unsweetened almond milk, coconut oil and protein powder, he said.Eat your normal food all weekAnything you eat, from the time it enters the body until it exits, takes about two to three days to pass, Seebohar said. That means if youre racing on a Saturday, something you ate on Wednesday or Thursday can wreak havoc on you on race day if you arent used to it.Dont do anything extremely different from your typical meal plan, like eating foods you never have before a race, says Seebohar said. If youre traveling, try your best to replicate your normal eating patterns. You may just have to up the amount and density of your portions. Mark McGwire Athletics Jersey. Plan for longer distancesWhether your race is 3 miles or 8 miles or 13-plus makes a big difference in your fueling plans. With a short race, a good breakfast and water are all youll need. But youll need more if youre on the course for several hours.For a longer race, after every two to two-and-a-half hours, you need to be thinking, OK, now I need more calories, Seebohar said.Because of the heart-rate spikes caused by obstacles, youll burn through more energy than you would in a steady race such as a half-marathon, so plan to consume 80-100 calories an hour.What to eat when youre midrace? I think gummies are great because theyre easily digestible and individual, Seebohar said. Unlike a gel, where you have to consume the whole pack at once and generally cut it with water because it has a higher carb concentration, gummies allow you to partition calories more approximately.Remember to hydrateEach race is different, but normally, you should be drinking enough so youre going to the bathroom every two to three hours, Seebohar said.Its extremely important that it becomes a part of the cognitive process a couple days before the race, he said. Ask yourself, Am I carrying my water bottle? and even the morning of, be sure youre drinking water.Replenish the nutrients you sweat outNot only is it important to remember your carbs, protein and fat, but you also need to be getting your full electrolyte panel: sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Its key to replenish these along the route as well.If you have a higher sweat rate, chances are youre probably losing more sodium, Seebohar said. Some races will have a water station with an electrolyte formula in the water, but otherwise, take an electrolyte capsule to help replenish what you lose in sweat and avoid cramping. ' ' '
