Has some of the shine come off of Ronald Koemans start as Everton manager?The Dutchman was pushing all the right buttons early in the season, but now faces a challenge to get his side back to their winning ways. Caleb Sturgis Jersey . His next opportunity to do so comes Sunday when the Toffees welcome West Ham United to Goodison Park.After starting the campaign unbeaten in their first five matches, the wheels have fallen off a bit on the blue half of Merseyside with the club winless in four straight. Everton (4-3-2) havent claimed a full three points since a 3-1 win over promoted side Middlesbrough back on Sept. 17.The Toffees enter the weekend sixth in the table with 15 points.Its not about our last five games, its not about the first six, its not about winning or losing, its an overview of what has happened and that we want to change, Koeman added. Of course, we know if you dont win in the Premier League then every time you play you come closer to a must-win game.I think we need to turn it around but it happens in football. Im prepared to get in tough times and also prepared for how we started the season, because thats football.Last weeks 2-1 defeat at the hands of Burnley materialised in the worst possible fashion. After the hosts opened the scoring in the 39th minute at Turf Moor, Yannick Bolasie equalised in the 58th. Everton dominated play most of the second half, but Scott Arfield fired home the stoppage-time winner, thus sending Koemans boys home shockingly disappointed.Koeman, though, believed the final score was an unfair reflection of the game.I mentioned to the players that we had a good start, he said. Maybe we dropped a little bit too much in the last 20 minutes of the first half, but it was an unlucky goal to concede.We had a good reaction in the second half. It was with much more intensity, we created more and were more dangerous. We scored a good goal and you expect to win the game, but then what happened in the last minute was hard to take. It was unfair with what happened on the pitch.Despite the recent dip in form, striker Romelu Lukaku continues to be a bright spot. Entering this weekends action, the Belgian international has netted six goals -- second only to Chelseas Diego Costa.On the injury front, left-back Leighton Baines and midfielder James McCarthy have been ruled out. Baines has missed the last five matches with a hamstring issue while McCarthy has picked up a similar problem.After starting the season with five defeats in their first six Premier League fixtures, West Ham United (3-1-5) have done well to bounce back a bit. Theyve found themselves unbeaten in three straight, including consecutive 1-0 wins over Crystal Palace and Sunderland each of the past two weeks.Winston Red netted the stoppage-time winner against Sunderland last weekend, and the Hammers were able to continue their form in midweek with an impressive 2-1 win over Chelsea in the EFL Cup. Theyll face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the quarterfinals next month.Goalkeeper Darren Randolph believes West Ham proved they are a match for anyone.We never seem to get the easy route in cup competitions, but its another trip to Old Trafford, where we went last season and put in some good performances, Randolph said.It was a good display for the whole game. Obviously to beat Chelsea as well was great. Everyone who came in did their jobs and it was a good win, and a good game for the neutral as well. Everybodys happy.The Hammers will need all hands on deck if they are to take points away from Goodison. West Ham manager Slaven Bilic believes he should have a full squad.Its a big game, Bilic said. We played a very demanding game physically and psychologically on (against Chelsea) and we have a few knocks and all that. Hayes Pullard Jersey . Hamelin, who triumphed in the 500 on Saturday, edged out Victor An of Russia by 0.021 seconds to maintain his lead in the World Cup standings. Russias Vladimir Grigorev was third. In the relay, Canada took control six laps from the finish line to beat Russia and the Netherlands. Philip Rivers Jersey . 9. Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. . R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles confronts the National Leagues most potent offense without the major leagues best pitcher Friday night when the Dodgers begin a three-game series at home against the Colorado Rockies.Left-hander Clayton Kershaw, scheduled to start Friday, instead went on the disabled list with a herniated disk. Kershaw, who lost his last start Sunday in Pittsburgh, complained of back stiffness after the game. The Dodgers on Wednesday flew him back to Los Angeles, where he received an epidural Thursday after consulting with a back specialist.Kershaw was making a serious case for his fourth Cy Young Award in six years. Kershaw led the majors with a 1.79 ERA, ranked second with 145 strikeouts, allowed opponents to bat .185 against him and conceded only six home runs and nine walks in 121 innings.To lose Clayton for any length of time is a big blow, but I think our guys have made a point that were going to move forward and were going to go out there and keep winning baseball games, manager Dave Roberts said. We did that (Thursday, an 8-1 victory in Milwaukee) and thats our goal tomorrow.The Dodgers filled Kershaws spot in the rotation by acquiring right-hander Bud Norris from the Atlanta Braves for two minor leaguers in a five-player trade Thursday. He will start Friday night. Norris is 3-7 with a 4.22 ERA this season but in his past 29 1/3 innings, the eight-year veteran amassed 29 strikeouts while conceding only seven runs and eight walks.Obviously, where were at with starting pitching and Buds been pitching well -- I had him in San Diego for a bit -- hes really thrown well, Roberts said. For them to give us a guy that can go deep into a game, can eat innings and get guys out, was huge. Were excited about it.Said Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal: Obviously, it takes a toll when you lose your No. 1 guy, especially a guy like Kershaw whos a presence not only in the clubhouse, but out on the field I felt like Bud Norris did a pretty good job against us this year when he pitched against us.I feel like he can be another addition, not only as a starter, but maybe once we get all the guys back, he can help us out in the pen, too. I feel like hes going to fit really good in this staff and on this team. But, its always hard to lose your No. 1 guy.Kershaaw or no Kershaw, Los Angeles must defuse the Rockies volatile offense. Jahleel Addae Jersey. Colorado leads the National League with a .276 team batting average, a .469 on-base percentage, 418 runs and 402 RBI. The Rockies also hold third in the NL with 104 home runs.Those exploits helped move Colorado within four games of the New York Mets, who hold the second wild-card spot, and within 5 1/2 of the second-place Dodgers in the National League West.Right fielder Carlos Gonzalez, who leads the Rockies with a .329 average, views the six-game road trip starting Friday night as pivotal in narrowing the distance between themselves and both the Dodgers and the first-place San Francisco Giants.This road trip is going to be huge for us, Gonzalez said. Were going to play the two teams ahead of us. Weve got to gain ground, and we all understand that were going to be facing some tough pitchers. Weve just got to continue to put some runs on the board, and expect better outings from the pitchers to give us an opportunity to win.Gonzalez ranks fourth in the National League in batting average, with second baseman DJ LeMahieu three points behind him in fifth place, and third with 98 hits. Third baseman Nolan Arenado has driven in a league-leading 65 runs while hitting 21 home runs.Rookie shortstop Trevor Story provides stability after the Rockies traded All-Star Troy Tulowitzki to Toronto last year. Storys 19 homers and 50 RBI lead all major league rookies.Story and LeMahieu missed two of the past three games because of a bruised right finger and a bruised left knee, respectively. After Thursdays off day, both are expected to be in the Rockies lineup Friday night.The Dodgers also have serious injury problems outside of Kershaw, whose absence further depletes a staff that has five other starting pitchers on the disabled list. An inflamed left rib cage put utilityman Enrique Hernandez on the disabled list Thursday. Outfielder Joc Pederson, an All-Star last year, could join them after injuring the AC joint in his right shoulder by crashing into the outfield wall at Milwaukees Miller Park on Tuesday. Pedersons 13 home runs rank second on the club.

From Arnold Palmers dominance to the doomed Tiger-Phil pairing to Team Europes recent string of titles, we look back at the Ryder Cups rich history:1963: United States wins 23-9East Lake Golf Club: Arnold Palmer served as playing captain, in the last time that would happen in a Ryder Cup. Blank Jersey . This one was at Bobby Jones home course in Atlanta. Although Jack Nicklaus had won his third major title earlier in the year, he was not eligible for the Ryder Cup because of membership rules then in place by the PGA of America. The Americans didnt lose a match in any of the afternoon sessions. Palmer went 4-2 as a player, while the team was led by Billy Casper (4-0-1) and Dow Finsterwald (4-1-1). Tony Lema was also 3-0-2. -- Bob Harig1967: United States wins 23? to 8?Champions Golf Club: Ben Hogan captained the U.S. side for a third time, and the Americans won easily in Houston. Perhaps the biggest news to come out of the event was Hogans benching Palmer in the morning matches on the second day because he was annoyed that Palmer had taken several members of the GB&I team for a ride on his plane. Palmer, who flew his plane directly over the course and scared a few of his passengers in the process, was reprimanded by the Federal Aviation Administration for the stunt. It didnt hurt his golf, though, as Palmer went 5-0 in his other matches. -- Harig1969: United States 16, GB&I 16Royal Birkdale Golf Club: The famous Concession at Royal Birkdale in Southport, England, saw the entire match come down to the 18th hole singles on Sunday, with both teams at 15? points. The entire match hung in the balance, as Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin -- Nicklaus had won seven majors to that point, Jacklin had won The Open earlier that year -- were tied after Jacklin won the 17th hole.When both players reached the green of the 18th hole in regulation, it came down to putting. Jacklin went first and left his birdie effort approximately 2 feet from the hole. Nicklaus was closer, with a chance to win it outright, but ran his past some 4? feet. There was a chance to lose right there, but Nicklaus made the putt, then picked up Jacklins marker. He later said he didnt think it was in the spirit of the competition to make the Englishman have to hole the putt. It was the first time the Ryder Cup ever ended in a tie. -- Harig1973: United States wins 19-13Muirfield: For the first time, the Ryder Cup went to Scotland, which was somewhat remarkable in that the competition was confined to Great Britain and Ireland. Jack Burke Jr. got a second crack at the captaincy after presiding over a rare U.S. defeat in 1957. This was a close Ryder Cup, as the two sides were tied at 8 after two days. But on the strength of an 11-5 singles advantage, the U.S. pulled away to an easy victory. Nicklaus led the Americans with 4? points, with Billy Casper getting 4. -- Harig1979: United States wins 17-11The Greenbrier: For the first time, continental Europe joined Great Britain and Ireland to form a European team. It didnt matter much at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. Even without Tom Watson, who left on the eve of the matches to be home for the birth of his daughter, and with Europe having a newcomer who would help change the Ryder Cup in Spains Seve Ballesteros, the Americans were in control. The format was changed to the current system that sees eight matches on Friday, eight matches on Saturday and 12 singles on Sunday. Larry Nelson, playing in his first Ryder Cup, went 5-0, the last American to sweep all of his matches. -- Harig1981: United States wins 18?-9?Walton Heath Golf Club: It had become a typical sight: the American team celebrating after winning the Ryder Cup. This time it came at Walton Heath in Surrey, England, and the outcome was the same as it had been for the past 12 Ryder Cups, with a thrashing of Team Europe. Four players -- Tom Kite, Larry Nelson, Nicklaus and Lee Trevino -- didnt lose a match all week for U.S. captain Dave Marr. -- Kevin Maguire1983: Americans win yet again 14?-13?PGA National Golf Club: Lanny Wadkins and Team USA kept their win streak alive in the biennial matches, but only by the slightest of margins. The 33-year-old Wadkins approach shot on the final hole of his singles match against Jose Maria Canizares stopped a foot from the hole, which gave the American a half-point, and that was enough to secure a 14? to 13? win. -- Maguire1985: Team Europe beats U.S. 16?-11?The Belfry: For decades, the European Ryder Cup team couldnt beat the Americans. That changed in 1985, when captain Tony Jacklin celebrated the first non-U.S. victory since 1957. Only one player had a losing record for Team Europe, while seven Americans finished under .500 for the week in Sutton Coldfield, England.?-- Maguire?1987: Europeans beat Team USA 15-13Muirfield Village Golf Club: The Ryder Cup matches started in 1927, but not until 60 years later did Team Europe win on American soil. That victory came with Jacklin, left, leading the squad as captain and Ballesteros as its top man inside the ropes. The Spaniard went 4-1-0 in five matches as the Europeans beat Team USA in Dublin, Ohio. Not only did the Europeans win, but they did so against U.S. captain Jack Nicklaus on the course the Golden Bear designed and where he held his yearly PGA Tour event, the Memorial Tournament. -- Maguire1991: United States wins 14?-13?Kiawah Island Golf Resort: All Bernhard Langer needed to do was make this 6-foot putt, and Europe would retain the Ryder Cup. The look on his face says it all, as he missed and halved his match with Hale Irwin. That gave the United States a slim victory in what became known as The War by the Shore at Kiawah Islands Ocean Course in South Carolina. -- Maguire1993: Team USA 15, Team Europe 13The Belfry: Led by captain Tom Watson, the U.S. won this closely contested battle in a match that came down to singles matches late Sunday afternoon. Davis Love III defeated Costantino Rocca to parlay a one-point deficit entering the final session into a clinching victory. That was the last time the American side won a Ryder Cup on European soil. -- Jason Sobel?1995: Team Europe wins 14?-13?Oak Hill Country Club: The second Team Europe title on U.S. turf was its first come-from-behind victory on a Sunday afternoon. Bernard Gallachers team trailed by two points going into the last session but rallied for a win. Among the singles winners for Europe were highly ranked Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie, but it was the least-heralded team member, rookie Philip Walton, who secured the clinching point against Jay Haas. -- Sobel1999: Team USA takes back title 14?-13?The Country Club (Brookline, Massachusetts): With his team trailing 10-6 on Saturday evening, and no team having ever come back from a deficit that large, U.S. captain Ben Crenshaw wagged his finger to the assembled press corps and foreshadowed the next day by claiming, Ive got a good feeling about this. His feeling was proven right Sunday, as the U.S. team put together the greatest comeback to that point in Ryder Cup history. The most memorable moment was a 45-foot birdie putt by Justin Leonard on the 17th hole, which clinched the victory when Jose Maria Olazabal missed his putt to halve the hole. -- Sobel2002: Team Europe wins 15?-12?The Belfry: Postponed one year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, this edition of the Ryder Cup held a somber undertone for much of the festivities. In the first Ryder Cup that included Tiger Woods (who went 2-2-1 for the week), it was Phil Mickelsons singles loss against Phillip Price that swung momentum in the Europeans favor. They won 15?-12?, the teams largest margin of victory since 1985. -- Sobel2004: Team Europe wins again 18?-9?Oakland Hills Country Club (Bloomfield Township, Michigan): A dozen years later, were still talking about U.S. captain Hal Suttons ill-fated decision to pair Woods and Mickelson for two matches on Friday -- matches they would lose. Momentum never swung toward the U.S. side, as European captain Bernhard Langer instructed his players to charm the opposing crowd and largely take them out of play. The 18?-9? differential was the largest for the European side and largest overall since 1981. -- Sobel2006: Europe 18?, USA 9?The K Club: Europe cruised to victory in Ireland, claiming all five sessions, but the focus was on captains pick Darren Clarke,?whose wife, Heather, had died from cancer just two months before. The reception he got on the first tee and the tears that flowed in victory stood out for their depth of emotion. There were also two aces, from Scott Verplank -- the first by an American in the competitions history -- and Paul Casey. -- Leo Spall2008: USA 16?, Europe 11?Valhalla Golf Club: Anthony Kims opening 5-and-4 defeat of Sergio Garcia led the way as Paul Azingers side turned the tables. Team USAs six rookies played their part too, as they made a Ryder Cup statement and the mood was encapsulated by the celebrations of a great victory. Kim, Hunter Mahan and Boo Weekley flew down the clubhouse stairs carrying champagne to meet the crowd. -- Spall2010: Europe 14?, USA 13?Celtic Manor Resort: The rain that weekend in South East Wales would be hard to forget, and it pushed the competition into Monday. On the fourth day, Graeme McDowell went head-to-head with Hunter Mahan in a gladiatorial contest in the last of the singles matches -- the decider. The Europeans 15-foot birdie on the 16th put his team 2-up, and on the next hole, it was all over.?-- Spall2012: Europe 14?, USA 13?Medinah Country Club: It started out as the Ballesteros Ryder Cup, with Europes players wearing the image of the late legend on their sleeves, and it ended up being remembered as the competitions miracle or meltdown, depending which side you supported. Europe trailed 10-6 on Saturday night, but Ian Poulters memorable Saturday afternoon showing in the fourball gave the team momentum, and the first five matches on Sunday were theirs. If Poulter turned the tide, Rory McIlroy also made a name for himself -- as the guy who nearly missed his tee time because he thought he was in a different time zone.?-- Spall2014: Europe 16?, USA 11?Gleneagles: Jamie Donaldson, Sir Alex Ferguson and Mickelson stole the show here for three different reasons. Europes Donaldson, a late qualifier for the team, sealed the contest with an awesome wedge approach shot to within 18 inches of the 15th?hole, and Keegan Bradley conceded. Before that, Ferguson, then the Manchester United manager, had stolen some of the limelight with a motivational talk for Paul McGinleys side. Afterward, Mickelson hit the headlines for his frank views on Tom Watsons captaincy. -- Spall Custom Borussia Dortmund Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Marius Wolf Jersey . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. . Breaking three of his own world records on his way to winning in Paris, Chan silenced the critics and left the audiences standing in appreciation and awe. Ospreys picked up their first Anglo-Welsh Cup win of the season after thrashing 14-man Cardiff Blues 31-7 at the BT Sport Arms Park.Blues prop Anton Peikrishvili was shown a red card following an altercation in the second half which turned the game on its head.Tries from Rhodri Davies, Brendon Leonard, Tom OFlaherty (two) and Dan Evans ensured Ospreys bonus-point victory over their Welsh rivals. Both teams fielded relatively young sides for the Anglo-Welsh Cup clash, many of whom experienced their first real taste of regional rugby.?Newport Gwent Dragons secured derby bragging rights with a 36-21 victory against the Scarrlets in the Anglo-Welsh Cup at Rodney Parade. Jeremy Toljan Jersey. Tries by centre Sam Beard (2), lock Nick Crosswell, full-back Carl Meyer and flanker Harrison Keddie secured a bonus point success for the home side. The Scarlets led 16-10 at half-time but the match turned on a red card for flanker Jack Condy after an off-the-ball incident five minutes after the restart.The west Wales side scored tries through hooker Dafydd Hughes and wing Corey Baldwin but were always up against it when reduced to 14.

Matthew Boyd wishes nothing but the best for his old mate Adam Cooney, but those sentiments will be put on hold on Sunday when the Western Bulldogs take on Essendon. .The Etihad Stadium clash will be the last of Cooneys career, and also that of former Geelong premiership player Mathew Stokes, with the decorated pair retiring after 250 and 200 AFL games respectively.Boyd, who played alongside Cooney for more than a decade before he switched to the Bombers at the end of 2014, is not alone in his feelings for the retiring Brownlow medallist.Weve got a healthy respect for Coons and what hes been able to achieve in his career, Boyd told AAP.He had a huge impact as a Bulldog, winning a Brownlow and playing a lot of finals for us ... he was a great player for us for a long time.But obviously, were going to try and spoil his party somewhat.The seventh-placed Dogs need a win to maintain their push for a top-four finish, while the Bombers, one game adrift of last spot on the ladder, are playing for pride only.With just two games until the finals, Dogs coach Luke Beveridge pulled a selection surprise when he dropped out-of-form full forward Jake Stringer.Toby McLean and Roarke Smith were brought back into the side that squeezed past Collingwood last week, while Matt Suckling is out with an achilles issue.Injuries to key players has been an unfortunate, recurring theme this year for the Bulldogs.Weve been able to play a lot of players, not only because of our injuries, but also because of the form our younger blokes have shown in the VFL, Boyd said.So were still learning and trying to hone areas of our game to get better, but the great thing is that weve been able to win games along the way (despite that injury toll).Weve been able to win close games as well and I think that builds confidence and belief within the group.The Bombers brought in Darcy Parish, Kyle Langford and Mark Jamar as they looked to record their third win of the season. . For the Wild it was their first win of the season and they now have a record of 1-1-2 while the Jets fall to 2-2. Jets start a six game home stand Friday with another divisional game, home to the Dallas Stars. . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. . Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., team took control of the game early. Tom Coughlin will be joining the NFLs football operations staff, a person with knowledge of the agreement tells The Associated Press.The two-time Super Bowl-winning coach will work closely with Troy Vincent and with the NFLs game-related committees in an advisory role.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL has not yet announced the hiring.Coughlin won 170 games in his 20 years as an NFL head coach, including the 2007 and 2011 league championships when the Giants beat the Patriots in Super Bowls. He alsso was the original coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and got them into the playoffs in 1996, their second season. He left the Giants after they went 6-10 in 2015, their fourth straight season out of the playoffs.Considered an offensive mastermind, Coughlin sought several coaching jobs last offseason, but didnt take any.---AP NFL website: and Disocunt Football JerseysWholesale Jerseys ChinaChina NFL Jerseys WhiteCheap Authentic JerseysYouth NFL Jerseys WholesaleCamo China NFL JerseysCheap JerseysDiscount JerseysChina NFL HoodiesCheap NFL Jerseys CamoCheap NFL Jerseys OutletNike NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Stitched JerseysWholesale Jerseys 2019Youth NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron expects nerves, but is adamant his young side wont be unnerved when they seek to secure a spot in the AFL grand final. Melvin Gordon Jersey .There are a handful of issues that will decide Saturdays preliminary final between GWS and Western Bulldogs at Spotless Stadium.How will the Giants fare without Steve Johnson and can the Bulldogs cover Matt Suckling?Will GWS be impacted negatively by the fact theyve played one game in almost a month?But in terms of the mettle of GWSs inexperienced charges, most of which are in the midst of their maiden finals campaign, Cameron feels theyve already given an answer.The Giants could hardly have handled the clubs finals debut better, comfortably accounting for Sydney in a qualifying final.Cameron is confident his team wont be overawed by the carrot of a grand final berth as the leagues latest rivalry heats up.When they go to bed tonight there will be a few nerves, Cameron said on Friday.Theyll wake up tomorrow morning and no doubt there will be some nerves. Theyve just got to understand they cant play the game in their heads three or four times before they get to the ground.Were confident they showed that two weeks ago against the Swans in their first final.Theyre confident kids. Sorry, I shouldnt say kids because theyve grown up now.The Giants have showed many times throughout their fifth season in the competition they wont be pushed around.There have been numerous club firsts and coming-of-age wins this year but the Giants crave the premiership that will show theyve truly arrived.We know were a young club in its infant stage, were starting to grow up, Cameron said.This is really what you want ... were really confident. Theyre really confident, so its going to be a great spectacle.Cameron, GWS co-captain Callan Ward and midfielder Ryan Griffen all started their careers at Whitten Oval, making for a clear narrative any time the sides clashed.But the burgeoning rivalry has come to life this week. They are two youthful teams in a hurry and it wouldnt surprise if they regularly meet during September in the next few years.Well butt heads tomorrow. Both sides will crack in, run really hard and play an exciting brand of footy when the opposition allows them to, Cameron said.Theyve got a really good list in terms of depth, so have we. We won the NEAFL grand final. The Bulldogs reserves are in the grand final.Theres some good history, good rivalry building between these two young sides. It looks like its going to be around for the next five or 10 years.Rhys Palmer comes into the side following Johnsons one-game ban, with Cameron calling on all 22 players to supply the spark usually provided by the former Geelong star. Hes obviously a very, very good player. You cant replace like for like, Cameron said.Collectively we expect to lose nothing. We dont need any one person to stand up and say I have to be exceptional.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Western Michigans Row The Boat mantra gets a national stage this weekend.P.J. Fleck and the No. 14 Broncos (10-0, 6-0 Mid-American) hope to continue their historic season Saturday at home against Buffalo (2-8, 1-5).The Broncos, one of two unbeatens remaining in the Football Bowl Subdivision along with top-ranked Alabama, are even hosting ESPNs College GameDay, just the second time the popular program has visited a MAC campus and the first time since 2003, when Northern Illinois visited Bowling Green.I remember the `GameDay atmosphere, how crazy it was, how packed the stadium was, said Fleck, a receiver at Northern Illinois that year. Were very honored to represent the Mid-American Conference and showing them, and the whole country, what `Row the Boat is all about.Fleck, who took over at Western Michigan in 2013 and finished 1-11 that season, uses the phrase to promote self-sacrifice for the betterment of the team.Once you find your purpose, it really changes your entire life, Fleck said. My purpose is to serve and give. When you find that purpose, it really provides energy every single day.Here are some other things to watch as the five-touchdown favorite Broncos try to stay unbeaten:PLAYOFF IMPLICATIONSThe Broncos, ranked No. 21 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings , are looking to stay in contention for a BCS bowl bid and extend their overall win streak to 13, dating to last season. Western Michigan, which had never won 10 games in a season before, needs to win its final two regular-season games and the MAC championship to havve a chance at a major bowl. Kellen Winslow Jersey. HIGH PRAISEDespite Buffalos record this season, Fleck believes the future is bright for coach Lance Leipold and his Bulls, who have lost two straight. Buffalo finished 5-7 last season.Lance Leipold is one of the best coaches in the country, based on his track record, and they play so hard for him, Fleck said. Were going to expect nothing different. Were going to get their A-plus game, we know that.LOPSIDED STATSWestern Michigan, led by senior quarterback Zach Terrell, senior receiver Corey Davis and junior running back Jarvion Franklin, has the MACs best scoring offense at 44.4 points per game, while Buffalo is last at 17.9. The Broncos also have the top scoring defense at 19.5 points per game, while the Bulls are 10th at 32.3.Our margin of error is very small right now and we have to find a way to overcome that, Leipold said. Our team is still going through growing pains, but Im very proud of the way we compete. We have the biggest challenge of the year this Saturday.NO LETDOWNFleck doesnt expect his players to overlook Buffalo with a huge matchup looming Nov. 25 against Toledo (8-2, 5-1).Were going to get everybodys A-plus game, Fleck said. When you play your B-minus game or C-plus game, and somebody plays their A-plus game, its going to be a dogfight.

What do you need to know about last nights big stories? Joe McDonald gives us his take on the biggest and best. Yerry Mina Jersey . This is where we say, Morning, Joe.Give us more Florida: If the hockey gods have a sense of drama, they will make sure the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers finally play each other in the Stanley Cup playoffs this season. Fans would go crazy to see two Florida teams play and the players would dig into that rivalry as well. On Monday, the Panthers defeated the Lightning 3-1. Reilly Smith scored the winner in the waning minutes of regulation and goaltender Roberto Luongo finished with 34 saves to snap a personal four-game losing skid. These two teams will battle for Atlantic Division supremacy all season. The win by the Panthers (6-6-1) over the Lightning (7-5-1) should be exactly what they needed to push them in the right direction. The Panthers have been getting contributions from forward Vincent Trocheck, who has six goals and two assists for eight points in 13 games. Adding Jonathan Marchessault during the offseason was huge: the former Lightning forward is leading the Panthers with seven goals and six assists for 13 points in 13 games. But Florida needs more contributions throughout the lineup to set up this playoff matchup. Make it happen, hockey gods.Rask and roll: Theres no way anyone would have predicted Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask would be 7-1-0 with a 1.74 goals-against average and a .941 save percentage, along with two shutouts, to start the season. Monday night, he made 32 saves to help the Bruins to a 4-0 win against the Buffalo Sabres. Rask will have to be Bostons best player if the Bruins want to erase two seasons of misery and return to the Stanley Cup playoffs. Rask won the Vezina Trophy for the 2013-14 season; hes at his best when hes getting help from the defense in front of him, which hasnt been the case in the previous two seasons. And when you watch Rask this season, it almost appears as if he doesnt care in that hes just so calm and fundamentally sound that he makes it look easy. But burnout is a concern; he shouldnt play more than 60 games this season. Thats a problem for the Bruins, as backup Anton Khudobin is sidelined with an upper-body injury and the goaltending depth hasnt been sound behind Rask. He has been outstanding so far and he will need to continue to be consistent if the Bruins are to return to the postseason.Trouba trade coming: The Jacob Trouba standoff with the Winnipeg Jets has been resolved -- for now. At 6-foot-3, 202 pounds, Trouba is a big, tough, mobile and skilled defenseman. He has a huge shot and a nasty streak, a cornerstone as a right-handed blueliner. But staying away from the team will affect his standing in the dressing room with his teammates. Ryan OReilly and the Colorado Avalanche went through the same thing before he was traded to the Buffalo Sabres. Trouba, 22, signed a two-year contract with the Jets worth $2.5 million this season and $3.5 million next season. If he hadnt signed by Dec. 1, he would have been ineligible to play this season. While the ink dries on his new contract, lets say this: He will be traded this season. Sure, his talents fit well on Winnipegs blue line, but the damage has been done. He asked for a trade in September and now that he has a bridge deal, GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will get the most out of Trouba before the next contract. Xavi Hernandez Jersey .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. Gerard Pique Jersey . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. . Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . Romain Grosjean says he is unfazed by Ferraris decision to retain Kimi Raikkonen for another year and is instead focused on taking Haas to the podium places.Driving at Ferrari customer Haas, Grosjean was seen as a potential replacement for Raikkonen before Ferrari extended his contract for 2017 in the days before the British Grand Prix. The French driver has made little secret of the fact a future chance at Ferrari influenced his decision to join Haas last year.When asked if he was still in prime position for that in future drive given that hes at Haas, he replied: I dont know. I know that Ive got the Ferrari engine, I work with Ferrari engineers and they know how I work. I know Ive been on the podium a few times in my career which always helps to go to a big team. After that I hope I am but I dont know.Im very happy here. Yes, if theres a chance to go to Ferrari theres no way I would say no. Thats a team Ive loved since I was eight years old. I want to be a world champion and I think thats where you get a good shot at it, so well see.Grosjean thinks there is sense in Ferrari keeping an unaltered line-up with big changes set to come in 2017.Im sure theres a reason behind the decision. With the new regulations, big changes, you kiind of want to keep the same driver line-up. Ivan Rakitic Jersey. On the other hand I am pretty happy here. We are doing a great job and I really want to put Haas on the podium at one point. So theres some work to do to achieve that but who knows? Everything is possible.He was then asked if he felt it was just one more year he would have to wait for a Maranello move, replying: I dont know. You never know in racing. Your day may come or it may never. I want to win races, I want to be world champion. Thats why Im racing in Formula One. To do that you need the car and there isnt many teams that can give you the car to be world champion - maybe three or four on the grid.You need to be in a good time in a good place, sometimes it never happens and you may never have the chance. As I said, here is a great experience, I dont regret anything from changing teams and I really feel very good here. I think Ive got quite an important role in the team and for me in terms of experience and in terms of career its a great thing.Haas is yet to confirm whether it is keeping either Grosjean or teammate Esteban Gutierrez for 2017.

TORONTO -- The first time Samoa Joe won the NXT championship, it came in surprising fashion, as he defeated Finn Balor during an NXT Live Event in Lowell, Massachusetts, in April. Malik Jackson Jersey . His historic second title was just as shocking.?Joe ended Shinsuke Nakamuras unbeaten streak within WWE on Saturday and threw NXTs future for a loop when he regained the title by pinfall at 20 minutes, 12 seconds, in the main event of NXT Takeover:Toronto at the Air Canada Centre.The ring entrances provided everything you would need to know about how differently the two superstars go about their business. Joe swaggered to the ring with all the confidence in the world; then he watched on as Nakamura employed 10 different violinists to play his theme song.Once the introductions were made and the title was held to the sky, their similarities became quite clear, as well. Each men swung their fists and forearms with reckless abandon and accurately conveyed how much their characters despise each other within the storyline.The action spilled out into the crowd, with Joe taking the brunt of it. There was little space for either man to catch a breath in the early going, as every ounce of energy Joe and Nakamura had was poured into laying their opponent to waste. Joe grabbed his first significant edge for a few moments during this sequence, which included a step-up Enziguri kick in one corner and an STO in another.Samoa Joe worked the knee for some time and continued to wear down Nakamuras base (and primary weapon -- the Kinshasa) with a kneebar. It took Nakamura several minutes to escape, and all that rolling out of the ring earned him was a tope suicida to the face, as Joe dove through the middle rope to the outside.Joe recorded the first near-fall of the match, but as has been the case throughout his WWE run, damage only seemed to inspire Nakamura. With a few knees and a corner strike, Nakamura regained control, albeit briefly, because Joe seemed to have an answer for every sequence. He countered with a powerbomb, which led directly into a modified Boston Crab and then an STO.Neither man yielded an inch for most of the match, and it felt right for all these two men have put each other through in the buildup. Both of their finishing moves failed to connect, and even when Nakamura finally hit his Kinshasa, it only drew a two-count. Joe couldnt quite convert a sleeper hold into a Coquina Clutch choke.A cross-armed German suplex combo gave Joe another near-fall, but as soon as he got up from that sequence, Joe was clearly bleeding from the side of his nose. Nakamura seemingly all but knocked Joe out with a knee to the back of the head, which also sent him tumbling out of the ring. But it would be that ringside area that would ultimately be Nakamuras undoing.Joe eventually hit a low blow while the referees back was turned, followed by an STO onto the steel steps and a Muscle Buster in the ring to earn the pinfall, silencing the Toronto crowd.Nakamuras first loss changes things dramatically at the top of NXT. Instead of Joe being written off the brand and sent onto Raw or SmackDown -- as many expected -- a third showdown between Joe and Nakamura becomes inevitable. Nakamuras in-match antics arent quite as forgivable without the perfect record. And while many would hope that one (if not both superstars) will soon be on the main roster, Joes second title reign keeps the top rivalry on NXT white-hot for the near future.For full match recaps and ratings from NXT Takeover: Toronto, click here.
