Ohio State fan with muscular dystrophy scores final touchdown of spring game

During Ohio State’s spring game, the Buckeyes defense let a very special fan score a touchdown on the last play of the game. In the final seconds of the fourth quarter, Jacob Jarvis, a teenage Buckeyes fan who has muscular dystrophy, scored Team Scarlet’s final touchdown of the game.

“If you’re a competitor, that’s the way you should feel, and I don’t mind saying it,” Landry said. “It’s time for a change. I have all the respect in the world for the Patriots, and I respect Tom Brady tremendously. But they’re not our big brother anymore.”

After splitting their series with New England in 2013, 2014 and 2015, Miami lost both games to the Pats last year, Adam Gase’s first season as Dolphins head coach.

“He’s flipped the switch with us,” Landry said of his coach. “New England’s won the division 14 of the last 16 years, something like that? It’s ridiculous. It’s a problem. We cannot let that happen anymore. What I’ve seen is, when we play that game, sometimes we focus on the Cheap Youth Baseball Jerseys guys on the other side of the line instead of just focusing on us. And I want to be part of that change. I China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale want to go into the games against New England expecting to win — that’s something we need to do.”

While MMQB softens Landry’s comments by writing, “there wasn’t a speck of disrespect or smack talk about the Patriots,” Brady, Belichick and Co. probably won’t interpret it that way. If the Patriots need any extra motivation when they face Miami in 2017, Landry has provided it.

Mike James injury: Bucs RB officially out for season

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Mike James is going to miss the remainder of the season with a broken left ankle, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. The news comes from head coach Greg Schiano, who just earned his first win of the season on Monday when the Buccaneers beat Cheap Long Sleeve Soccer Jerseys the Miami Dolphins and when James sustained the injury.

“The doctors and the trainers talked about just making sure that it’s stabilized,” Trestman said. “It wasn’t swollen after the game [on Sunday]. It was swollen certainly on Monday, and they just wanted to make sure it was stabilized. That’s really the only thing I know about it at this time. It is a hard cast.”
While a hard cast often signals a serious injury, the Bears may simply be taking a cautious approach in this case. The cast will promote quicker healing, as opposed to a walking boot that can be removed at the player’s discretion.

Trestman called Cutler “week-to-week,” and Cutler has already been ruled out for the game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Josh McCown will play once again in Cutler’s place.

Cutler suffered the injury during the loss to the Detroit Lions last week. He was pulled before the Bears’ final offensive possession, after his worsening mobility in the pocket became too significant to ignore. After the game, Trestman admitted that he left the quarterback in the game too Cheap Lions Jerseys long.

The Raiders and Guy Fieri: a match made in heaven

“That’s a slant-22 right with donkey sauce on two, on two and make sure that, unlike Guy’s bold flavors, you remain completely in bounds the whole time.”

The Raiders Twitter account initially sent out a tweet reading “We have @GuyFieri in the house! His food is incredible!” But that tweet was deleted. Perhaps they realized they can only lie to their fans so much.

OK, I get that for a lot of reasons, including Cheap Lebron Jerseys an offensive line that is underachieving right now and injuries still effecting the skill positions. The Cheap Liverpool Soccer Jerseys 49ers passing offense won’t look like it did in the first game against the Packers for quite a while. Harbaugh was calling running plays that don’t convert in several instances with his team facing third-and-short.

Where did this version of Harbaugh come from, and how can we get the other guy back? It doesn’t take a riverboat gambler to throw the ball on third-and-2 or go for it on fourth down at your opponent’s 2-yard line, it just takes a set of … courage:

The 49ers players squandered opportunities to win that game, like the fumble by Hunter and the interception at the end by Kaepernick. However, the game should have been all but decided at that point. Until Harbaugh gets his courage back that offense will continue to sputter and cost them games.

That would be one hell of an investigation if someone did accuse him of point shaving.

And then there were none. Even though both teams did their best to give their respective games away late, the Jaguars and the Buccaneers got off the schneid this week nothing their first win of this season. I would hate to be in the meeting rooms of the Titans and the Dolphins this week.

Cheap Jerseys America

A sack at midfield by the Washington Redskins ended a last-minute comeback attempt by the Chicago Bears, preserving a 45-41 win in a thrilling back-and-forth contest.

With time running out and up by four points, the Redskins Cheap NFL Jerseys were able to get to quarterback Josh McCown — who was filling in for an injured Jay Cutler — on the game’s final play.

McCown took over after Cutler left the game with a groin injury in the second quarter.

Colin Kaepernick carried the ball for 10+ times for the first time of the 2013 season and it resulted in a convincing win. His ability to run in open space helped mitigate Frank Gore’s struggles on a day where San Francisco’s running back was a great short-yardage option, but averaged just 2.9 yards per carry.

Tennessee showed its absolute best on offense and still fell short by two touchdowns. This team is able to gain yards, as seen by its 368 yards on Sunday, but the Titans struggle to convert in key situations. The offense converted 36 percent of third downs, and its deficiency was clear — they can’t run the football in short situations. Chris Johnson isn’t a between-the-tackles runner, and Shonn Greene was unable to offer anything. Getting a power back is the key for Tennessee to take Cheap Mountain Bike Jerseys the next step, and avoiding bad turnovers like Darius Reynaud’s fumble will help too.

Box scores can trip you up sometimes. Such is the case when looking at Mike Glennon’s game on Sunday. Superficially he played extremely well, passing for 256 yards and two touchdowns — posting a rating of 90.7. Scratch the surface and there are some worrying trends Glennon will need to correct, namely an inability to consistently throw deep. On Sunday he finished with 5.8 yards per pass attempt, which is extremely low. By comparison Matt Ryan finished at 10.5 yards, meaning it took him 18 less pass attempts to throw for more yards.

Watch Online: Monday Night Football can be watched using Watch ESPN, provided you are subscribed to a compliant cable provider. Verizon subscribers can watch games live with the NFL Mobile app (subscription required). NFL Game Pass offers live online broadcasts to users outside the USA.

More on the matchup: The Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants last Cheap NCAA Jerseys met in 2010, when Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw combined for over 200 rushing yards as the Giants cruised to a 21-3 victory. Adrian Peterson was held to just 26 yards in the loss, something that will likely change on Monday. Josh Freeman is the wild card for the Vikings, as his ability to stretch is the field is something Minnesota has lacked with Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel at quarterback. Freeman’s downfield passing paired with Peterson could change the outlook of Monday night’s game.

All week, this was the Manning vs. Luck title fight. Naturally, veteran defensive end Robert Mathis may have been the game’s most important player. The 11-year veteran sacked his old quarterback in the second quarter and forced a fumble that resulted in a safety. The Colts scored on the next drive, and didn’t trail for the rest of the game.

After the game when asked about sacking Manning, Mathis just smiled and said, “it felt good.”

Mathis turned 32 this spring. His two sacks on Sunday night give him 11.5 for the season, tying a career best for sacks in a season. He’s on pace to break Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record. His sack/fumble was the 39th of his career, tying Jason Taylor’s NFL record. He has 43 forced fumbles Cheap MLB Jerseys From China since 2003, the most of any player. Mathis has a good argument to be the Defensive Player of the Year.

All those players Jim Irsay said the Colts couldn’t afford during the Manning/Bill Polian era are putting them in contention in the second year of the Andrew Luck era.

Here is a wrestler shooting fireworks off his own body on top of a car

If you saw WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic last year, you’ve seen Kota Ibushi showcase his in-ring skills. Or maybe you’ve seen him in New Japan Pro Wrestling before that.

But Ibushi has an absurd side that casual wrestling fans haven’t seen much of. He has wrestled a blow up doll and barely won. Ibushi has also channeled his inner BMX rider in a match and launched himself at his opponent.

But yo, Ibushi is playing with fireworks on top of a car now. Not only that, but he’s bold enough to direct them towards himself and then jump off the car for a moonsault.

You should never try wrestling moves at home, but never in a million years should you try doing what Ibushi just did. This is awesome (please don’t do this).

Had the Wildcats defeated West Virginia in Friday’s Big 12 Tournament semifinals, they probably wouldn’t be on this list. As it stands now they are, and their dreadful non-conference schedule might not give them much hope in the Committee room. The Wildcats’ best non-Big 12 performance came in a loss to Maryland in Brooklyn, while their best actual win, over Colorado State in Denver, pales in comparison. January’s SEC/Big 12 Challenge didn’t help matters — K-State lost its game at Tennessee by 12.

Three Top-25 wins, with two over Baylor coming away from Manhattan, might be enough. But K-State’s inability to schedule decent games in November and December look likely to be its undoing.

Saturday’s loss to Arkansas in the SEC Tournament semifinals means the Commodores are likely to be the NCAA tournament’s first-ever 15-loss at-large entrant. Rhode Island’s win in Sunday afternoon’s Atlantic 10 final means Vanderbilt might be headed to Dayton for the second consecutive March.1

Would Romo want to walk into that rebuilding effort? Doubtful.

Just like the Bears, the 49ers can afford Romo. But just like the Bears, the 49ers are far from being a winner.

Colin Kaepernick didn’t even play too poorly for San Francisco and it wasn’t nearly enough to make up for the NFL’s worst defense and an offense that was severely lacking in weapons to work with.

Would Romo want to walk into that rebuilding effort? Doubtful.

Seconds before the final buzzer had even sounded in Miami, Nowitzki is running off the floor. His 10 fourth-quarter points had made sure Dallas was crowned 2011 champion, but before the trophy is presented, Nowitzki needs a moment. He isn’t going to let the world see him cry.

A Mavericks public relations official follows him into the locker room. We have to go, he tells Nowitzki, knowing the television cameras could only wait so long. You have to receive the Finals MVP trophy, he continued.

“Give it to somebody else,” Nowitzki remembers replying.

By 2005, a 26-year-old Nowitzki had already tallied 11,106 career points. That season brought his epochal game-tying layup in Game 7 against the Spurs, as well as heartbreak in the 2006 finals. But it starts on a lighter note that preseason, when Knicks rookie David Lee is convinced he needed to show something against the established Nowitzki.

“David Lee just thought it was the most important thing to guard Dirk, and Dirk just torched him,” Cuban says.

Nowitzki’s reaction, in Cuban’s recollection, is, “Who the fuck is David Lee Roth, and what’s he doing here?”

For what it’s worth, Lee remembered this game well but says that Cuban has embellished it a bit — in classic Cuban fashion.2

NHL Mad On-Line: Josh Ho-Sang deserves respect for wearing Mario Lemieux’s number

Welcome to SB Nation NHL’s new “Mad On-Line” series, where we find something trivial the hockey world is mad about and tell you whether you should be, too. Usually the answer is no. Spoiler alert.

Josh Ho-Sang was controversial before his NHL career even began. At one point in the Arizona State game, he tried a nifty but ill-advised behind the back pass to save the ball underneath his own basket, and it led to a pair of Sun Devil free throws. Seconds later, he stood with his foot over the lane line, daring an official to call a lane violation.

He gets away with these things because he’s Lonzo Ball, the best player on one of the best teams in the country. You may have seen him pulling up from 30 feet to hit a dagger three-pointer, or flying high for alley-oops once not thought to be possible.

He was widely considered one of the best players in the 2014 NHL entry draft. And yet, 27 teams passed on him before the New York Islanders took him at 28th overall. Why?

Because he’s flashy … to the point that his maturity came into question. The NHL’s culture is sort of archaic. The NBA and NFL are wildly popular because they embrace the personalities of their star players. Hockey people boast about it being the ultimate team sport. Which might be true. But that doesn’t sell tickets.

Bill Daly says the NHL has learned about not marketing individual rivalry since Sid/Ovi: “Our sport is the ultimate team sport.”、

The city of Los Angeles loves a winner, and the legendary Pauley Pavilion — notoriously tough to fill when the home team is struggling — has been hopping since December.

The Bruins are averaging more than 10,000 fans a game at home, and the fact that they lead the conference in road attendance is evidence that their brand is just as strong as it used to be.

To watch a UCLA game now is to watch any UCLA game ever. The Bruins play in the same arena, in the same neighborhood, wearing the same uniforms they have since the 1960s.2

That’s an explosive recipe for megadeals that will have agents and players smiling wide.

The most common question I heard in Indianapolis from executives: What will teams do with all of this cap space?

One theory: All of the cap space will encourage more trading. There aren’t great free agents available, but teams should have more salary flexibility to take on big contracts in trades, or deal for players wanting new contracts.

According to OvertheCap.com, 12 teams have more than $40 million in cap space. Even after applying franchise tags, just nine teams have less than $20 million to spend. In short: the salary cap shouldn’t get in the way of teams accomplishing their goals this offseason. This is a dramatic change from where the league was just a few years ago. But will teams be willing to rewrite the pay scales on these players?

There are fewer quality players about to hit free agency than ever before because teams have done a better job re-signing their own talent. All this cap space with so few top-level players available will test the discipline of general managers. That’s an explosive recipe for megadeals that will have agents and players smiling wide.

But 99 percent of the defenders Shaheen faced at the college level won’t spend time in a NFL training camp. So scouts were eager to see him in the context of this tight-end group, which is one of the most athletic and talented crops of tight ends the combine has ever seen.

And Shaheen worked out like he belonged.

At 278 pounds, the Ashland product ran a 4.79 40-yard dash with impressive results in the vertical (32.5 inches) and broad jump (10-foot-2).

And even more impressive, Shaheen was clean and efficient during the positional drills, especially the gauntlet, where he snatched the football and stayed controlled down the line.

Already considered a top-100 draft pick, Shaheen only helped himself in the eyes of NFL teams and it shouldn’t surprise anyone if he finds his way into the top 50 picks.2

Lane Kiffin reportedly hiring his father, Monte, after their USC split

Lane Kiffin has been at his new FAU job for a new months now, and his staff has come together, featuring offensive coordinator Kendall Briles, the son of fired Baylor head coach Art Briles, and his brother Chris as defensive coordinator, who was a longtime defensive assistant at Ole Miss with Hugh Freeze.

Now, it looks like Kiffin has added yet another family member to his staff, and it’s one that he’s worked with before. On Friday, ESPN reported that Monte Kiffin would be joining FAU’s staff, but what his job title will be is still unclear.

Kiffin’s exact role is not yet known. His hiring was first reported by Sporting News.

But it was March 15, 1994, and he had already picked up 25 league goals, as well as three in the cups. By this point he was just shy of 100 career goals for Southampton and Blackburn across all competitions, and was 41 goals into his eventual Premier League record of 260.

Now, at the age of 23 years, seven months and two days, Harry Kane has played across League One and the Championship, but mostly in the Premier League. He’s played and scored for Tottenham Hotspur, Leyton Orient, Leicester City, and Millwall, as well as failing to score for Norwich City. And thanks to his hat-trick against Stoke City last weekend, he’s scored 102 goals so far, including 66 in the Premier League.

We’ve dealt with Curry slumping this season, and it looked like he had broken out if it just fine over the past month. In fact, Kevin Durant helped facilitate Curry getting his magic back by taking on a slightly lesser role. But that was all last month — now, it seems, Curry and Thompson are stacking up bricks faster than any terrible cliche I could finish this sentence with.

So what’s our conclusion — that the Warriors are bad, overrated and should blow the team up to tank while there’s still time left to do so? Well, no, that’s not it. Let’s remember how talented Golden State actually is for a moment here.2
