Ehlinger’s 487 yards of total offense rank third in school history.

“Sam is a tough, tough kid,” Herman said. “He made a lot of freshman mistakes, but he overcomes them with toughness and tenacity.”

Herman still wouldn’t commit to Ehlinger has his regular No. 1.

“I’m not going to think about the decision of who is going to play quarterback next week until I watch the film and see how healthy Shane is,” Herman said.

Jack Johnson and Gabriel Carlsson leveled Schmaltz on the left side of the crease during the play. Schmaltz took a minute to get up, then skated slowly to the bench with help from trainer Mike Gapski.

Saad made it 2-0 at 6:04 with a power-play goal when he converted a rebound from a goalmouth scrum.

Chicago extended its lead to 4-1 after 40 minutes.

Set up by Saad, Toews one-timed in his first goal this season Cheap Dodgers Jerseys from the left circle at 10:14 of the second. The play was set up when Panik knocked Seth Jones off the puck behind the Columbus net.

Milano cut it to 3-1 31 seconds later when he poked in Nick Foligno’s feed that slid along the goal line behind Crawford.

But it has all fallen apart for Cal (3-3, 0-3) since then, and the 38-7 loss to Washington on Saturday, in which the Cal offense failed to score a point, was the low point.

“Obviously a really disappointing performance,” Cal first-year coach Justin Wilcox said. “We didn’t do anything on offense to give us a chance. We’re going to have to re-evaluate some things.”

The victories will come soon for Chase Elliott

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but that was in the All-Star Race 17 years ago. He starts 23rd on Sunday, but if fondness for a track means anything, Earnhardt may rally to the front.

Is it clear what playoff points really mean yet? Is racing Sunday afternoon at Charlotte a good idea? Is a winless driver on the cusp of a breakthrough? Will Chase Elliott have a Dover loss hangover? Our gang has at it.

Martin Truex Jr. is a pretty safe bet to make it through the NASCAR playoffs’ second round, but you never know. With Charlotte, Talladega and Kansas this round, our man breaks down the 12 drivers left vying for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup.

Most athletes have to experience the effects of losing one before they Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys can prepare themselves mentally to win one. I believe it exists for competitors in Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys all kinds of sports.

“We thought they’d come man-pressure,” Campbell said. “And they did.”

Wide left out of the four-receiver, shotgun formation, Lazard predicted from his film sessions that Thomas would be playing up on him and would try to hold him up at the line of scrimmage on the snap. Sure enough, Thomas did.

“I saw him twitch his feet, so I knew it was coming,” Lazard said of the jam. “I timed up the snap with his jump. And I was able to get outside leverage, because he was head up to outside.”

Lightning’s J.T. Brown gets death threats after protest

Tampa Bay Lightning forward J.T. Brown said Sunday he has received death threats on social media after raising his right fist during the national anthem Saturday night before his team’s game against the Florida Panthers.

“It is about police brutality, racial injustice, and inequality in this country. It is something that I as well as many others feel needs to be addressed. I love my country, but that doesn’t mean I cannot acknowledge that it is not perfect,” he wrote.

“I wanted to do something to show my support,” Brown told the Tampa Bay Times after the Lightning’s 5-4 loss to the Florida Panthers on Saturday. “There are some issues that we have to talk about. So, in my mind, just trying to bring a little more awareness, and any type of conversation that we can get started would be great. I know there’s going to be negative backlash. But, in my heart, I know I did what was right.”

The Lightning issued a statement later Saturday, saying, “The Tampa Bay Blue Jays Cheap Jerseys Lightning celebrate the moment before every game when we can unite as a community, paying Cheap NFL Jerseys USA homage to a flag that is representative of our nation and those who have sacrificed. At the same time, we respect our players and individual choices they may make on social and political issues.”

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the anthem in the preseason a year ago to make a statement about social inequality and police treatment of blacks in the United States. Since then, the protest has spread to other sports.

Brown, 27, is the son of former NFL running back Ted Brown, who played eight seasons for the Minnesota Vikings.

“These are football players, for heaven’s sake,” Vince Dooley said. Between his playing days at Auburn and duties as coach and athletic director at Georgia, Dooley braved enemy hospitality Cheap Jerseys For Sale for nearly 55 seasons. “Are we trying to be tough or spoiled? All those years I traveled for games, if I’d walked into a visiting locker room and found a couch and Nike NFL Jerseys 2015 some ferns, honestly, I think I would have been way more insulted than I ever was with the bad stuff.”

Greeting one’s guests with “bad stuff,” such as cold showers, cramped quarters and funky smells, is as much a college football tradition as marching bands, mascots and pom-poms. Including, on occasion, mold spores that look like pom-poms.

Power Rankings Week 6: Oklahoma fails to deliver

A schedule largely devoid of marquee matchups made Week 6 all about taking care of business.

Those teams that did, especially on the road, were rewarded accordingly. Those teams that did not, especially at home, paid a severe price.

The top four looks a little different after Oklahoma’s stunning home loss to short-handed Iowa State. Georgia slides in after taking its road show from Knoxville to Nashville.

Washington State, TCU, Miami and Wisconsin also move up with profile-boosting victories. Oklahoma and Michigan, meanwhile, didn’t deliver on their home fields, and they sink in the rankings.

At this point in the year, teams should be impressing each week, either by which teams they beat or how they beat them. Résumés are building, as NC State attests. The rankings MLB Baseball Jerseys welcome some new blood with Michigan State, Stanford, Texas Tech and Navy.

Schoeppler declined comment when he was reached by ESPN last week. Miller Nike NFL Jerseys China didn’t return several phone calls from ESPN.

During negotiations to end Dawkins’ employment, the lawsuit said, IMA calculated that Dawkins owed the firm $61,700 for improper expenditures. IMA and Dawkins agreed that he would sign a promissory note to repay the money, and IMA agreed to release him from certain noncompetition clauses in his contract.

Dawkins signed the termination agreement on Feb. 24, 2015, but never signed the promissory note, which was one of IMA’s conditions for allowing him to join Miller’s firm, the lawsuit said.

Iowa State QB Jacob Park taking leave of absence due to unspecified ‘personal health issues’

Iowa State starting quarterback Jacob Park is taking a leave of absence for unspecified “personal health issues,” the team announced Friday night.

Park remains on the team but will be inactive beginning with Saturday’s game at No. 3 Oklahoma. The junior started Iowa State’s first four games, completing 61.7 percent of his passes for 1,181 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions.

Police told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the investigation is ongoing and detectives have not determined whether the alleged incidents are criminal.

Athletic director Chris May declined to comment when reached on Monday by ESPN, citing the federal student privacy law related to Title IX investigations.

Last week, Saint Louis University president Fred Pestello issued a statement, saying, “First, I want to say how deeply troubled I am by these allegations, which involve behavior that runs counter to our mission and values.

“SLU seeks to foster a safe and supportive atmosphere where students, faculty, clinicians, and staff can flourish in an inclusive environment that is free from harassment Basketball Jerseys and harm. Sexual assault, misconduct and harassment of any kind have no place at our University.”

Saint Louis opens its season Nov. 10 at home against Seattle.

Though Chayka is known as an analytics whiz, he is clearly comfortable speaking Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping hockey’s traditional language with assistant general manager Steve Sullivan. A high-scoring winger at the junior hockey level and OHL draft pick whose career ended because of a back injury, Chayka went on to co-found Stathletes, a hockey analytics company, in 2010 while earning a business degree. Stathletes’ goal was to use video analysis to create statistics that better help measure the ability and value of players — and to make those numbers more accessible. Thus, he doesn’t come across as a “stats geek” who can’t communicate with hockey lifers — the knee-jerk stereotype for younger execs who subscribe to analytics.

Iowa State’s Joel Lanning plays both ways against Sooners

Iowa State’s Joel Lanning played true iron man football in the Cyclones’ upset of Oklahoma on Saturday.

With starting quarterback Jacob Park having taken a leave of absence for “personal health issues,” Lanning rotated in at quarterback behind Kyle Kempt while also continuing to NFL Jerseys Paypal play linebacker.

Sammy Watkins, Los Angeles Rams, illness, 4:05 p.m. ET: Nothing to see here. Watkins missed practice Wednesday with an illness, but fully practiced Thursday and Friday. Off the pregame Wholesale NHL Jerseys injury report, Watkins is expected to play against the Seahawks.

He has elevated himself to a weekly QB2 option in two-quarterback leagues and in fact a borderline QB1, thanks in large part to significant improvements this season in terms of yards per attempt (7.7, up from 6.2 during his rookie season) and interception rate (1.7 percent, down from 2.3).

On Friday, the team did not hold a formal practice, but Montgomery was again listed as a limited participant. His doubtful tag is not surprising given the leap from very limited practice participation to full competition, especially when dealing with an injury as painful as rib fractures. Expect Montgomery to sit this week out. Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones will likely each see work in his place.

“It’s an evaluation game. I thought the way [Tocchet] used his bench was really effective for trying to understand players in different positions,” Chayka said. “I think 5-on-5, we outplayed them. Obviously, we took some penalties. We know they’re trying to crack down on slashing, and we just can’t do it, so we cleaned that up, and some of that is just a learning thing where it’s new to slashing rules. We learned from our mistakes. I think our young guys will, and we’ll just keep evolving, so I was happy.”

Bears vs. Packers: Viewers hit with loud profanities in field-mic snafu

To the person in charge of the five- (or seven- or whatever-) second delay on the NFL Network/CBS “Thursday Night Football” broadcasts: You missed one. Make that two. Badly.

The network’s field microphones picked up a double profanity that someone off camera yelled after a Bears penalty Thursday night. Somehow, those words made air.

Just heard two swear words, beginning with F and S, as clear as day on the NFL broadcast. Came after a bad Bears penalty.

Cooper’s Landing: “So after this past weekend with the NFL Cooper’s will be joining Borio’s and NOT airing the NFL games enough is enough its time for these million dollar snowfakes Cheap Jerseys Stitched to stop disrespecting the Men-Women-Dogs that signed a blank check for them to act like this Hopefully things will change”

Palmetto : “Palmetto Restaurant and Ale House will not be showing NFL games Cheap Jerseys UK until the NFL rids itself of protest by their employees during the presentation of colors and the national anthem.”

Sarita’s Grill : “Sarita’s has decided not to broadcast any future NFL games or the NFL Network. We respect everyone’s right to freedom of speech; however, we do not support anyone that disrespects our Flag, our Country and the people who have fought and/or died for the freedoms that we have.”

WOW Cafe & Wingery : “I apologize to all of our guests but we will not be viewing the Saints game today in house. Some of our local players chose to sit during the National Anthem, which will not be supported or praised at WOW.”

Patriots’ defensive woes can take their toll on Tom Brady, too

The Patriots’ defense is terrible, and it’s the sole reason they are 2-2 and tied with the Jets in the AFC East with two home losses after Sunday’s shocking 33-30 loss to Carolina. Tom Brady might be the only reason the reigning Super Bowl champions aren’t winless.

Because the NFL is all about complementary football, one major weakness at some point will take its toll on an unquestioned strength.

With so much talk about “Can you believe how well Brady is still playing at 40?”, it’s time to remember that, well, he’s still 40. No QB, even the G.O.A.T., can be expected to lead Cheap Jerseys Online big comeback after big comeback.

While speaking with the media on Wednesday, Newton referred to Kaepernick Cheap Jerseys MLB With Free Shipping as a “legend.”

“We cannot forget the fact that sports as a whole brings people together,” Newton said Sunday. “For the two hours, three hours, whenever a time that a sporting event is on or your team is playing, we know that a lot of people from different shapes, colors, creeds, ethnicities and cultures come together. At that moment, they’re rooting for the same thing.

“We try to unify people with that, and that’s all it is. Unity is something that’s going to cure a bad mentality in this country, and I feel as if we all stick together, if we all come together and listen, hear, speak, we can better help the situation. Because, a lot of situations that are going on right now in our country are trying to cause division. We get nowhere divided.
