A few years ago, the Big Ten asked its football coaches to vote on whether theyd favor moving to a nine-game conference schedule.Their answer was unanimous: No.We wanted to stay at eight [league games], Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. We liked that. We knew it. We understood it.Like it or not, ready or not, the league is embarking on a (sort of) new path this fall. The Big Ten will initiate its nine-game conference schedule in 2016, joining the Pac-12 and Big 12 among Power 5 leagues to do so. The SEC and ACC will continue to play eight-game conference schedules.The change is part of the Big Tens new scheduling mandate, which directs member schools to play at least one Power 5 nonconference opponent and no FCS teams in addition to those nine conference contests. The rationale for this model: improving strength-of-schedule ratings to impress the College Football Playoff selection committee and boosting attendance and interest.It is, I think, a sign of the times, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. Were looking to try and move forward and play more Power 5 conferences and within the Power 5 conferences.The increased number of high-stakes regular-season games does pose some risks when it comes to the Big Tens postseason chances, however.The additional losses that might come with more competitive schedules could dent a playoff contenders résumé. Perhaps its no coincidence that the Big 12 (in 2014) and the Pac-12 (in 2015) are the only two Power 5 leagues who have missed out on a playoff spot in the events first two seasons. Stanford coach David Shaw has been vocal about the inequality of some leagues going through a nine-game conference grind while others have stayed at eight.So the big question is, do committee members give extra weight to teams that play nine league games instead of eight?It depends on whom they schedule in nonconference games, said Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez, who has served on the playoff selection committee since its inception. One of the criteria were mandated with is strength of schedule. Thats important, and a conference championship game is important.So we have criteria that we look at it, but thats up to each individual conference. Thats not our job.Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany has acknowledged the possibility that a league playoff contender could get knocked out by the tougher schedules. But the league is willing to gamble that the strength-of-schedule component will be worth it.I would say the champion of our league probably will get in the playoff because of it, provided they can get through with only one loss, said Dantonio, whose Spartans made the playoff last year despite a conference loss. I think its going to give us more credible conference scheduling.The playoff isnt the only place where the nine-game schedule could impact the postseason. An extra week of conference action means a Saturday in which seven league teams are guaranteed to lose. In the past, Big Ten teams struggling to make a bowl could get to 6-6 by playing four soft nonconference games and finding two league victories. Thats what Indiana did last season in qualifying for its first bowl game since 2007.Now teams would need to beat at least three Big Ten opponents to claw their way into the postseason. And, as Fitzgerald points out, those extra losses and potential missed bowl games could lead to more coaches being fired.I dont know why we want to beat ourselves up one more time, Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson said. Its not going to be easy, but we embrace the challenge.The nine-game league schedule presents other wrinkles. The uneven number means that half the league will play five conference home games in a season, while the other seven teams get only four. The Big Ten will rotate that by division, with the East getting the five league home games in 2016. In some years, that could affect the balance of power.Some teams will have an inherent advantage with five home games, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. In the years that you have that extra away game, you just have to accept it as a little bit of an extra challenge.Every team aims to have seven total home games per season for budgetary reasons. That creates some tricky logistics in years when a team has only four conference home games and also still has the Power 5 opponent requirement. Several Big Ten athletic directors and coaches would actually prefer to play 10 conference games per year so the schedule would have more balance. The league investigated that idea but decided going to 10 games is a little too radical right now.Coaches and administrators may sweat some of the details, but as Alvarez said, the nine-game schedule will be great for our fans. It means fewer cupcake games and more recognizable conference opponents. After expanding to 14 teams, the Big Tens eight-game schedule created some gaping on-field absences between programs; for example, Wisconsin and Michigan will meet this year for the first time since 2010.Adding those kinds of matchups is important. As Delany has often said, Big Ten teams want to play against each other more, not less. (And TV executives apparently agree, as the conference just signed a record media rights deal.)I committed to play in the Big Ten because I know its quality football, Badgers linebacker Vince Biegel said. I wanted to go play in the Big House and those kinds of venues.I love playing against other Big Ten teams, Minnesota senior linebacker Jack Lynn said. Thats kind of our identity. Its more intense, and preparing for each team is a little more strenuous.The Big Ten has actually gone down this road once before, albeit briefly.The league moved to a nine-game conference schedule from 1981-84, though Ohio State and Iowa refused to play the extra conference game in 1981 and 1982. Illinois remains the only team to go 9-0 in regular-season league play, doing so during its 83 Rose Bowl season. After Ohio State won the Big Ten with a 7-2 conference record, the league ditched the nine-game plan.Athletic directors had some of the same issues then as they have today, especially with the five home games versus four, senior associate Big Ten commissioner Mark Rudner said.Of course, those were much different times, with no playoff, less intense media coverage, and little emphasis on any bowl postseason besides the Rose Bowl. How will the nine-game schedule work in this era?I look forward to seeing how it plays out, Fitzgerald said.So does everybody else. Craig Anderson Jersey .

If Sydney FC fans needed any further confirmation that Matt Jurman is as tough as they come, they got it on Saturday night.Not to be put off by a killer cut above his right eye which later required 10 stitches, a heavily bandaged Jurman got straight back into it against Adelaide United.He could never have predicted his first three touches on return to the Allianz Stadium pitch would all be headers, and all within the space of a minute.Each was toasted with a lively cheer from the Sky Blues faithful, a jaunty recognition of the hard-as-nails centre-backs bravery following a horrible head clash with Uniteds James Holland.I was like, `oh, fair enough Ill keep at it then, Jurman said.It was just a magnet to my head and I thought, `how many times is this going to happen tonight?Minutes earlier there had been concern after Jurman collided forcefully with Holland in an aerial challenge in the box during the goalless draw.As Holland went to ground, his Sydney counterpart spun away clutching at his eye and flicking blood away as it streamed down his face.The 26-year-old admitted initially freaking out a bit as the team doctor and physio rushhed out to stem the flow.ddddddddddddI thought I was going to score and then next minute I was looking at my hands and had blood everywhere, it was leaking out of my head, Jurman said.I didnt know how bad it was but to see blood coming out that quick, I thought it was quite bad.I started walking off and then realised the game wouldnt stop, so I stayed on and got treatment.But its nothing that hasnt happened before.In fact, it has happened to Jurman before.During Sydneys 2014-15 grand-final loss to Melbourne Victory, a flailing elbow from former Brisbane teammate Besart Berisha left him bandaged and needing stitches.That split was slightly lower and Jurman played much of the decider barely able to see out of one eye.It was the same stubborn will to play on that has him certain hell be fine for Wednesday nights FFA Cup final against Melbourne City.I told them I have to be ready so they better figure out something quick, he said.I think itll be fine - you stitch it up and hopefully it recovers pretty quick.

California has not proven to a be a preferred getaway destination for the Montreal Canadiens in recent years, especially when they visit the Shark Tank.The Canadiens look to end a long winless streak in The Golden State and earn their first win at the SAP Center in more than 17 years when they face the San Jose Sharks on Friday night in a matchup of division leaders.Montreal, which sits atop the Atlantic, has gone 0-6-2 in Anaheim, Los Angeles and San Jose since topping the Ducks in a shootout on March 5, 2014. Also, after its last win on Nov. 23, 1999, Montreal is 0-7-2 in San Jose, having been outscored 37-17 and blanked three times.The Canadiens have allowed 11 power-play goals in 35 chances to the Sharks following their last northern California win.I guess its time for a change, defenseman Shea Weber told the Montreal Gazette.Over the first 15 games this season, the Canadiens were conjuring up images of dominant teams that would go on to lift the Stanley Cup 24 times.Montreal charged out to a 13-1-1 start, scoring at least three goals in all but two games. Five players -- Weber, Alex Galchenyuk, Alexander Radulov, Max Pacioretty, and Paul Byron -- combined for 23 goals and 40 assists, with Galchenyuk and Weber each scoring six goals. Byron, whos never had more than 11 in a season, chipped in with five.Over their last eight contests, the offense has dried up as Montreal has gone 3-4-1 and been held to two goals or less six times. The five players who powered the Habs offense early on have totaled 10 goals and 12 assists since their hot starts.The lack of offense was evident again Tuesday night when the Canadiens opened the California portion of their five-game road trip. Andrew Shaw helped Montreal avoid its second shutout of the season by scoring with two minutes to play in a 2-1 loss to the Ducks. It was also the Habs sixth straight game decided by one goal.We have to figure out a way to score, coach Michel Therrien told the Montreal Gazette. We had 40 shots ... and we had some quality scoring chances, but we couldnt put the puck in the net.San Jose (14-9-1) enters play with a three-point lead over Anaheim and the Edmonton Oilers in the Pacific, and returns home looking for its sixth win in seven games after defeating Los Angeles 4-1 on Wednesday behind two goals and an assist from Logan Couture.Couture has been red-hot over the last six games with five goals and two assists. Brent Burns also has seven points over that span, including three goals. Both players are tied for the team lead with nine goals while Burns and Joe Pavelski each have a team-best 21 points.Couture has scored 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in seven career games against the Canadiens. In four home games versus Montreal, Couture has two goals and five assists to help the Sharks go 4-0-0.Barring injury or anything unforeseen, the game will feature two of the NHLs top goalies in Montreals Carey Price and San Joses Martin Jones.Price, who stopped 36 shots against Anaheim, is expected to make his sixth straight start, and he told the Canadiens official website what the team needs to do to end their San Jose skid.If we have puck support and we keep moving out feet, we make it difficult on teams. Thats kind of our forte. We have to get back to that, he said.Price is 13-2-1 with a 1.68 goals-against average, .947 save percentage and two shutouts. Hes 0-3-1 over four career starts in San Jose with a GAA just under 4.Jones is 12-8-1 with a 2.04 GAA, with a .921 save percentage and he also has two shutouts in 2016-17. Hes faced Montreal four times in his career with San Jose and Los Angeles, recording a 3-1-0 record with a 2.25 GAA, .911 save percentage and one shutout.Hes always been comfortable. Hes always been calm. Hes elite. Hes a pretty experienced guy. Hes always been good, Burns said of Jones. Air Max 270 Homme .

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics returned home to a field still bearing markings from an NFL game played at the Coliseum 24 hours earlier and proceeded to get blitzed in their most lopsided loss of the season.That it came against the Red Sox shouldnt have surprised anyone. In four games versus Boston this season, manager Bob Melvins ballclub has allowed a minimum of 13 runs each time while being outscored 66-17.This was just the latest in a series of blowouts.David Ortiz singled twice and drove in three runs, David Price won his fifth consecutive start and the Red Sox routed the As 16-2 on Friday night.You know when you get behind in counts and get guys on base and you do it multiple innings, they end up making you pay, Melvin said. Theyre first in the league in runs, RBI, on-base percentage, everything. For a while we were in the game . then they did what they can do when you make some mistakes.Oakland committed two errors, but the big problem was pitching.As starter Andrew Triggs lasted one inning before leaving with a sore back. The three relievers who immediately followed combined to give up 14 runs over 6 1/3 innings.Its just frustrating to put the bullpen in that situation like that, Triggs said. Im hopeful it will be something that will get resolved pretty quickly.Stephen Vogt had an RBI double for the As. Oakland, which has lost eight straight to Boston, dropped a season-high 20 games under .500 (57-77).The As did all their scoring in the fourth. Billy Butler had a sacrifice fly and Vogt added an RBI double.Travis Shaw homered and had five RBI, Hanley Ramirez added three RBI and Xander Bogaerts doubled and scored three runs to help the Red Sox move within one game of first-place Toronto in the AL East. Boston (75-59) is three wins shy of matching last seasons total.Price (14-8) was mostly dominant while pitching seven solid innings against the overmatched As. The left-hander fanned five of the first seven he faced, gave up two runs and finished with seven strikeouts and three walks.HONORING BIG PAPIBefore the game, Ortiz -- wearing a blue Red Sox hoodie with his red cap on backward -- spent time shaking hands and taking pictures with employees and security guards at the Coliseum. The Boston slugger also paused to sign autographs for a handful of fans lined up near the tunnel behind home plate before making his way back to the clubhouse. Later, Melvin and team president Michael Crowley presented Ortiz with a three-liter bottle of Northern California wine.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: RHP Joe Kelly, LHP Robby Scott and INF Deven Marrero were added to the roster from Triple-A Pawtucket. C Ryan Hanigan came off the DL before the game.

NEW YORK -- Tyler Brennan is training to be a pilot in the Air Force, yet this weekend hell be vying to be top gun at the National Drone Racing Championship.The 22-year-old Air Force lieutenant traveled from Colorado Springs, Colorado, to compete in the tournament, which is being held in New York City this weekend. Brennan is one of more than 100 pilots vying for a $50,000 prize.I found it on YouTube and I was hooked immediately, Brennan said of the sport, which is still finding a following. My first time, I was like, `I got it. I am hooked here and I crashed almost immediately . But that split second that you get has you hooked for life.Dozens of pilots gathered for a practice event Friday on Governors Island, a former military installation in New York Harbor.With spectators watching from a viewing stand, the pilots donned headsets that gave them a cockpit view as they remotely directed their drones -- most no larger than a paperback book -- through an obstacle course of gates and flags at speeds up to 60 mph.The competitors fly using first-person view headsets, which allow them to see as if they were inside the tiny drones, said Scot Refsland, the founder and chairman of Drone Sports Association, which is helping to put on the tournament.A small mesh net is the only thing separatingg the spectators from the action.dddddddddddd. Spectators stood on the side lines, their smartphones in hand, capturing video of the small crafts whizzing by. Participants needed to pass through qualifying competitions in order to race.The tournament, which is being broadcast on ESPN3, draws competitors of all ages.The youngest racer, 12-year-old Sorell Miller, of Boise, Idaho, will face off against dozens of other racers, including his father, Conrad.Brennan says he hopes the competition persuades people that they shouldnt be afraid of the craft, which tend to make news headlines only when someone is using one improperly.Nobody here will you see flying in airspace they arent supposed to be, flying near a wildfire or doing anything they arent supposed to do, he said. I hope this introduces drone racing and can show people that drones arent something that sits outside your window and spies on you -- not at all in any way, shape or form. This is a sport.After this, he said hes going to focus on preparing to fly much bigger machines.This is my real hurrah, Brennan said. After this, Im concentrating on flying for the Air Force and this will remain a side sport.

BOSTON -- Rick Porcello continued to dominate at Fenway Park, and fans had to settle for a Red Sox victory without an appearance by Alex Rodriguez.Porcello pitched eight solid innings, Matt Barnes cleaned up a mess created by closer Craig Kimbrel and Boston held on to beat the New York Yankees 5-3 on Tuesday night.Kimbrel walked in a run with the bases loaded in the ninth before handing off to Barnes, who struck out Mark Teixeira for his first save. Boston returned home after going 5-6 on a West Coast trip.It was a big win for us. It came off a long, tough road trip, Porcello said. So we started the homestand off the right way and its a good way to start the series.After falling behind early, the Red Sox scored three runs in the fifth to lead 5-2. Boston has won 10 of the last 14 meetings between the rivals. Dustin Pedroia had three RBI.Porcello (15-3) allowed two runs and struck out six. He improved to 11-0 in 12 starts at home this season.Luis Severino (1-7) allowed five runs and seven hits over 4 1/3 innings. It was his first start since being demoted to the minors in May.Rodriguez did not play after announcing that this weeks four games would be his last with the Yankees. Manager Joe Girardi said the plan is for Rodriguez to start the final game of the series on Thursday night. A-Rod will play his final game in pinstripes Friday night at home against Tampa Bay.With the Red Sox leading in the ninth, a We want A-Rod! chant briefly broke out among sellout crowd.Rodriguez made his major league debut for Seattle at Fenway in 1994.Things got tense for a moment in the seventh after Chase Headley was thrown out trying to stretch his double off the Green Monster into a triple. Benches cleared after Headley had words with Porcello, and the two briefly came face-to-face. Umpires quickly stepped in and were able to calm things.Porcello declined to say what the specific issue was about.It was one of those moments where I felt like I needed to say something and I did, he said. So its between me and him. He knows what I said, and Ill leave it at that.Headley also was mum about the incident.He said what he had to say and I responded, Headley said. Im competing, too, so I actually kind of enjoyed it, to be honest. We havent had one of those dustups with the Red Sox in a while. It got me going a little bit.The Red Sox played catch up until putting things together in the fifth.Andrew Benintendi nearly had his first career homer after hitting a shot next to the yellow line that separates the Green Monster and the wall in center. The umpires conferred briefly before signaling a home run. Benintendi rounded the bases and had a few minutes in the dugout before the call was overturned on a review and ruled a double.It still drove in Sandy Leon, who led off with a triple to the corner in right, and put Boston up 3-2.Benintendi scored on a double by Pedroia, and the second baseman came around to put Boston up 5-2 when David Ortiz hit a line drive off the Green Monster.BOBBLEHEAD CANCELEDThe Red Sox canceled an Ortiz bobblehead promotion when the figurine turned out to be racially insensitive, said team president Sam Kennedy. The bobblehead depicts Ortiz addressing fans at Fenway Park following the Boston Marathon bombings, but Kennedy says it didnt much resemble the retiring slugger and was not fit for distribution. The rejected bobblehead was made by BDA, Inc., and the company will also produce the replacements.We value our decades-long relationship with the Red Sox organization and its decision to postpone Tuesdays David Ortiz bobblehead giveaway, BDA said in a statement. Were currently working closely with the Red Sox to ensure the team and its fans receive a quality product.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: New York claimed LHP Tommy Layne off waivers and placed him on the active roster Tuesday, one week after the Red Sox designated him for assignment. Layne made his Yankees debut when he came out of the bullpen in the fifth and replaced Severino.Red Sox: Manager John Farrell said after the game that LF/C Blake Swihart will have surgery sometime in the coming days on his injured left ankle sprain. He is likely done for the season.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Nathan Eovaldi (9-8, 4.80) leads the club in wins despite losing his last two starts, allowing a pair of home runs in each.Red Sox: LHP Drew Pomeranz (0-2, 6.20 in AL) is still looking for his first win since coming to Boston in a trade with San Diego on July 14.

IRVINE, Calif. -- And yet another lesson to be learned when your nearly every move and sentence is being recorded for public consumption.Mom is watching.Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher learned that after the first episode of the HBO Hard Knocks documentary series aired Tuesday night, capturing him using some R-rated language. The next day, a phone call came.I got one of these yesterday, Jeffrey! Fisher said Thursday. This is from Mom. So I said, Sorry, Mom. Thats our world. Ill try to do better.When I hear Jeffrey! Its uh-oh. Something went wrong.The segment in question captured Fisher addressing the Rams in a morning meeting before the second day of practice. In the opening practice, star receiver Tavon Austin had been carted off when he cramped up after eating only two bananas at lunch. Then he cut receiver Deon Long for having a female guest in his room.Little things are important, you follow me? Fisher said. I am not f---ing going 7-9 or 8-8 or 9-7, OK? Or 10-6 for that matter. This team is too talented. I am not going to settle for that, OK? I know what I am doing. We had some 7-9 bulls--- this morning. Now, Deons gone. That is 7-9 bulls---. We dont need it.The Rams went 7-9 last season. Some wondered just how far he would continue his countdown, how high his expectations for this team.Part of the whole process is inviting them in to the meeting rooms, Fisher said Thursday. But there are spontaneous things that come up, that, as coaches, you have to go and address. So I addressed something that took place in the morning and wanted to get my point across. People can read into whatever they want. But that was me talking to the team as if the cameras werent there. I was OK with what I said.I stopped at that point. I could have gone on.

Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute.

A triumphant Olympics for the U.S. team -- especially all those golden female athletes -- has come with some nasty aftershocks, raising more potential questions about gender inequality.Lets start with Hope Solo, who was suspended for six months and effectively kicked off the national womens soccer team for some sore-loser comments in the wake of an excruciating defeat.Still to come, presumably: Ryan Lochte, a 12-time Olympic medalist who awaits his fate for making up a fanciful tale about an armed holdup during a night of drunken revelry not long after the swimming competition ended.If Lochtes punishment from USA Swimming or the U.S. Olympic Committee for a much-worse transgression isnt at least as harsh as the one Solo received, it would logically seem to follow that the old boys club has won out again.Or does it?Since the two cases are hardly apples to apples, lets use them more as a jumping-off point for a serious discussion about sexism in sports. The timing couldnt be better, coming on the heels of female athletes claiming 61 of the 121 U.S. medals in Rio -- including 27 of 46 golds.These kinds of cases are really important, said Ellen Staurowsky, a professor of sports management at Drexel University, who plans to talk about both Solo and Lochte in her upcoming classes. Working with future leaders who are going to move into the industry, they need to be contemplating what the moral issues are and they need to be developing a sense of their own moral compass.Solos punishment likely ends her long tenure with the national team. After a shootout loss to Sweden and no medal for the mighty American womens team, the goalkeeper lashed out at the winners, calling them a bunch of cowards for their defensive style of play.It was a silly, ridiculous statement, of course, but many male athletes have said far more outrageous things while feeling the sting of defeat.Further complicating matters, this was not a one-off for Solo, whos had plenty of run-ins with teammates and coaches over the years, not to mention a still-pending domestic assault case and a monthlong suspension last year for being in a team van when her husband was arrested on drunken-driving charges.Which brings us to Lochte, the new poster child for white male entitlement and ugly American behavior.After getting hammered with three of his teammates, there was an ill-fated stop at a gas station to relieve themselves. What happened next remains a point of contention, but no one can deny that Lochte initially concocted a version of events totally out of touch with reality: robbers posing as police, he said, pulled over the swimmers taxi, pointed a gun right at brave Ryans head, and robbed him of his wallet and money.Actually, Lochte and his teammates sparked the whole affair by urinating outside the station, followed by Lochte, accoording to two of his teammates, ripping down a sign like some out-of-control frat boy.dddddddddddd Armed security guards confronted the swimmers and made them pay for the damage, which Brazilian authorities say -- and the Americans deny -- also included the trashing of a locked restroom. In addition, there are differing accounts of whether the guards pointed guns at the swimmers, which would seem far out of line with the offense.No matter. It was Lochtes lies that turned this into an international incident, and prompted both USA Swimming and the USOC to say theyre considering possible sanctions. He already was dropped by four major sponsors, though he has since been picked up by another company and reportedly landed a gig on Dancing With The Stars. (Solo already did a stint on the show, it should be noted.)Amy Randel, a professor in the sports business program at San Diego State University, said Friday that Solos previous misconduct skews a direct comparison with Lochte, whose only known misstep before Rio was that horrific, short-lived reality TV show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?There is research that shows that women who violate stereotyped behavioral norms face negative consequences for that behavior, while men are given a wider berth for their behaviors, Randel wrote in an email. But it is difficult to use that lens to interpret these two cases since there is more involved here than just these athletes behavior at the 2016 Olympics.Even so, these cases are at least a worthy conduit to keep us all firmly focused on gender equality, a debate I found myself in the midst of at these Olympics.A newspaper headline over one of my swimming stories created a bit of a kerfuffle on social media, drawing criticism from those who said it was yet another example of how the accomplishments of female athletes always take a backseat to their male counterparts.Two weeks later, I still think Michael Phelps settling for a silver medal deserved top billing over Katie Ledecky winning gold in world-record time -- he is, after all, a 23-time gold medalist -- but I can now understand why so many folks took it personally (even when I pointed out that AP didnt write the headline, and did write an entirely separate story focusing on Ledeckys amazing Olympic performance).This issue is far more important than two imperfect athletes or social media trolls.Its about ensuring the fair treatment of all those marvelous female athletes.After wowing us in Rio, they deserve nothing less.---Paul Newberry is a national writer for The Associated Press.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Andre Drummond hopes some advanced technology can help him with his free throws.The Detroit center has been using virtual reality in an effort to improve his performance at the line. Drummond has made 38 percent of his free throws for his career, and its an issue thats sometimes caused coach Stan Van Gundy to take him out down the stretch in games.Andres been very open to trying to find everything possible to help him improve at the free throw line, and he has wanted to do that, Van Gundy said. Hes been willing to do as much as he possibly can.That includes turning to virtual reality, which Drummond said allows him to visualize himself making free throw after free throw.They recorded me shooting a ton of free throws, and obviously recorded the makes, and watching over and over again and just training my brain, he said.The exercise underscores the degree to which the Pistons feel Drummonds struggles are mental and not physical.When I tried it I ended up really liking it and stuck with it throughout the summer and I saw the progress, Drummond said. Its more of a mental thing, and with the VR, its more of a reinforcement, kind of training your mind to think positively all the time -- even though youre not going to make every shot, but you still have that thought process that youre making shots.The Pistons returned to the playoffs last season for the first time since 2009, but they were swept in the first round by Cleveland. Drummond is a big part of a young lineup with the potential for a lot of improvement -- and theres certainly room for growth when he goes to the line.He didnt say how much hes improved this offseason, since his success rate in practice doesnt ultimately matter. He also indicated he doesnt have a specific idea of a percentage he should shoot this season.I think thats where I messed up last year, was setting a goal in my head, he said. I think for me, its just not worrying about makes or misses, just really shooting the same shot over and over again.Game notes F Marcus Morris said there has been discussion within the team about taking a stand on social issues in light of Colin Kaepernicks national anthem protest. Where Im from, just because of how its always been, you just learn not to really trust the police, Morris said.

Ben Stokes has been left out of the squad for the third Test against Pakistan after MRI scans confirmed a torn calf muscle. England have opted not to replace him for Edgbaston, sticking with the 13 other players named for the Old Trafford Test, with Jake Ball, Steven Finn and Adil Rashid the candidates to come into the XI.Confirmation of a calf tear almost certainly rules Stokes out of the rest of the Test series, although England have indicated he will be reviewed by the medical team in Birmingham on Monday. With back-to-back Tests coming up, it is little more than two weeks until the final match at The Oval, starting on August 11.England levelled the series with a 330-run win at Old Trafford, in which Stokes scored 34 batting at No. 7 and took 2 for 39 in Pakistans first innings. He pulled up holding his right calf during his sixth over in Pakistans second innings and left the field immediately. He had only just returned to the side after missing three Tests with an injury to his left knee.The knee problem, which required minor surgery to fix a cartilage tear, meant Stokes played no part in the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka and he could now be out for the rest of the summer. England play five ODIs and a T20 international against Pakistan between August 24 and September 7.England have become used to shuffling their order this summer and Stokes absence is likely to see Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes all move up a place. Ball, who made his debut against Pakistan at Lords, or Finn, who took eight wickets on his comeback at Edgbaston last year, would provide a fourth seam-bowling option, while Rashid could play his first home Test if the pitch looks likely to turn.The policy of sticking with the same group of players seems likely to hand James Vince another chance. Vince is currently averaging 18.57 after five Tests, with a high score of 42, and has yet to prove himself in Englands new-look middle-order.Englands dominant performance at Old Trafford was based around a century from Alastair Cook and Joe Roots career-best 254 at No. 3, but, despite the margin of victory, some issues remain. Gary Ballances return to Test cricket has resulted in scores of 6, 43 and 23, while Alex Hales has struggled against Pakistans new-ball bowlers. Moeen Alis all-round contribution has also come under scrutiny, although he picked up five wickets in the second Test, his best returns since being named Man of the Match in Englands win in Durban before Christmas.

The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. NEW YORK -- On a dreary, rainy Manhattan night, a huge, happy roar arose in a crowd of chess fans from around the world.Two-time world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, had just reached for a final, victorious move on Wednesday that crowned him a champ for the third time.He had beaten Russian grandmaster Sergey Karjakin with bold, aggressive moves in a series of tie-breakers capping three weeks of the World Chess Championship that until Wednesday was tied after 12 games.The setting was in a refurbished New York City building overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge that was once the citys fish market.On this night, it became a glittering gathering of hundreds of fans -- adults and children -- from Norway, Russia, the United States and elsewhere. They were riveted as the two grandmasters leaned over in the tense game, barely moving, in total silence and deep in thought.The fans paid $100 to enter, feasting on snacks and drinks as they kept their eyes glued to flat-screens that beamed close-ups of the chessboard in an inner chamber. A panel of soundproof glass shielded the players from onlookers, who could see in but whom the players could not see.Hungarian grandmaster Judit Polgar said the four lightning-quick games played on Wednesday were like Russian roulette.Today, the faster games are a great show even for people who dont know the game, said Polgar, considered the greatest female player ever.On Wednesday, the required mental strategies also played out on chessboards scattered around the spectator lounge. People hovered over them, trying out various combinations of pieces, mirroring the masters.Magnus is my hero because he takes risks, hes really exciting, said Pipppa Millstone, a Manhattan 9-year-old who came to watch the tournament for her fourth time.ddddddddddddThe game is pretty even now, but I feel like Magnus is going to start attacking really soon, she said in the middle of the third of four so-called rapid games, each about a half hour long each, played as tie-breakers on Wednesday.Carlsen and Karjakin reached a draw in two, and the Norwegian won two for the championship.At crucial moments, spectators hushed, waiting to see what the next move would be. At times, one whispered, no, no when Karjakins choice seemed halting, or on the defensive.Even the winner missed a chance in one game, drawing groans and a few happy shrieks, depending on loyalties.Organizers said about 6 million people around the world followed the tie-breaking games, sort of like sudden death play in football.Most fans were in homes and clubs across the globe. Some spent $15 for a Pay-Per-View live transmission, others to watch via high-tech goggles in 3D virtual reality or by tracking moves on various free websites.The prize was $1.1 million divided between the two players, with the winner getting 60 percent.The New York championship did not escape the shadow of East-West rivalry reaching back to the Cold War days when American Bobby Fischer beat Russian Boris Spassky in 1972.This time, a key figure in chess was absent in New York: Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, a Russian businessman and longtime president of the governing World Chess Federation who was accused by the U.S. government of collaborating with the Syrian regime.

Sydney ruckman Kurt Tippett and defender Callum Mills have been ruled out of the Swans AFL semifinal against Adelaide and are no certainty to play any further part in the clubs campaign if they advance beyond next weekend.Tippett suffered a non displaced hairline fracture to his jaw and Mills a grade one hamstring strain in Saturday nights qualifying loss to the GWS Giants.In pointers to their potential replacements, defender Jeremy Laidler and ruckman Toby Nankervis were withdrawn from the Swans side which contested Sundays NEAFL grand final.The seniors have got a game next week and its only smart to pull some of your best players out so they are ready for next week, Swans reserves coach Rhyce Shaw said after his teams four-point loss.Tippett, who was playing just his third match back after an eight-game layoff following hamstring surgery, will consult a specialist on Monday to determine the best course of action.Rising Star winner Mills, who had played 21 of 23 games this season, suffered the lowest grade of hamstring strain, offering him a little hope of him playing again if the Swans stay alive beyond next weekend.Another possible replacement for Mills, 21-year-old Zak Jones, suffered a blow to his chances of playing when he was stretchered off in the final quarter of Sundays game after suffering a head knock.The medical staff will look at him and weigh up what happens in the morning, but he seems OK, Shaw said.Sydney didnt really have the luxury of also withdrawing Jones from the NEAFL decider.He had only played one NEAFL game last week after missing the Swans final six home and away round matches with an ankle injury.Jonesy only played the one game previously and he probably needed the run, Shaw said.Im sure he would have been up for selection next week.Laidler was an emergency for Saturdays match and started the Swans first 12 games of the season, but hasnt featured in their past nine AFL fixtures.He would appear to have the advantage over Jones and veteran key position player Ted Richards, who might have made his final appearance for the club on Sunday, if he cant break back into the senior side before the end of the season.Richards, who is retiring at the end the season, hasnt played a senior game since round 17.Nankervis has played six senior games this year.

You know youre fighting this one person, its like your showdown, the most important thing in your whole life. Millions of people are watching.If it just happened right now, I would not be nervous.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts talk incessantly about protecting their biggest investment.Andrew Luck is still getting hit far too often.Five games into his fifth season, Luck already has been sacked a league-high 20 times, knocked down 41 other times and finds himself on a dubious franchise-record pace -- if he can stay healthy for 16 games.Weve got to be better, coach Chuck Pagano said Monday. You never want to give up sacks, obviously. Weve got to get it corrected. But there is improvement and there will continue to be improvement.Right now, its hard to see.The Bears (1-4) entered Sunday with six sacks in four weeks and nearly doubled that total with five sacks in the Colts 29-23 victory .At this rate, Luck will go down 64 times. If that happens, it would be the fourth-highest single-season total in league history behind only David Carr (76 in 2002 and 68 in 2005) and Randall Cunningham (72 in 1986).Indys franchise record for sacks allowed (62) came in 1997 with the totals split among three players -- Jim Harbaugh, Paul Justin and Kelly Holcomb.The real concerns emerged last season when Luck missed nine games with an assortment of injuries and the Colts needed five quarterbacks, including Luck to finish the season.Indy actually finished in the middle of the league with 37 sacks allowed, but the injuries were enough to send the offensive line overhaul into overdrive .Team owner Jim Irsay called it the top offseason priority. General manager Ryan Grigson used half of his eight draft picks on linemen. Pagano hired former Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin to fix the offensive line, and the expectation was that things would improve.So far, they havent and theres plenty of blame to spread around.Rookie right tackle Joe Haeg allowed three sacks Sunday. Second-year right guard Denzelle Good allowed two more. Luck bobbled two snaps from rookie center Ryan Kelly, and the previous week against Jacksonville, it was veteran left tackle Anthony Castonzo who struggled.The linemen arent exclusively to blame.Indys coaching staff has spent countless hours working on Lucks footwork, his ability to get rid of the ball quicker and throwing the ball away more frequently. But there are still times he holds the ball too long, and it has produced mixed results.Andrew created a lot of (the downfield throws) by extending plays and thats something obviously he can do, Pagano said.When things arent there initially, we count on him to do that and we count on the receivers. We made some huge, huge things happen on extended plays.The problem is he also goes down on some extended plays, and Luck isnt about to blame that on the guys trying to keep him upright.I thought our guys up front battled their butts off all day, Luck said Sunday. By no means was it perfect. By no means was I perfect. Shoot, I feel like the delay of the game at the end, you feel like youre trying to lose the game.So can the Colts find a fix this season?Pagano insists that they will continue looking to upgrade the roster, continue coaching those already in town and continue working to eliminate the ugly numbers and even uglier images of Luck taking all those hits.Its obviously a big concern for all of us, Pagano said. You never want to get your quarterback hit and sacked and all those types of things.Game notes Cornerback Darius Butler was diagnosed with his third injury this season -- a fractured finger that will require surgery. Pagano said they would put a plate in the hand and did not provide a timetable for Butlers return. Butler missed the season opener with an ankle injury and the second and the third and fourth games with a hamstring injury. ... Starting cornerback Patrick Robinson is listed as day to day with groin and knee injuries. ... Pagano said inside linebacker Josh McNary (stinger) might be able to play Sunday at Houston (3-2).---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Rishard Matthews Jersey .

Match factsThursday, October 20, 2016 Start time 1330 local (0800 GMT)Big pictureIn a normal Indian season, this ODI would have been played on Wednesday and not Thursday, but it has been postponed to accommodate the festival of Karva Chauth. This is festival season in India; the Kolkata Test was advanced to avoid a clash with Durga Puja and Diwali, one of the biggest pan-Indian festivals, takes place during the ODI series.For India, the festivities seem to have extended to the field - they have beaten New Zealand in all four matches of the tour, the Dharamsala ODI being the latest. But it is easier to recover from a loss in ODIs than it is in Tests, even a comprehensive one.One defeat doesnt make New Zealand, the World Cup runners-up, an ordinary team, nor will one win make Indias ODI issues go away but there are enough trends to bother one and please the other. Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor havent joined the festivities, whereas Virat Kohlis unbeaten fifty showed he had no trouble putting aside a nine-month gap between ODIs.Excluding Zimbabwe, New Zealand last beat an international side in March in the World T20. These are the kind of things that begin to stack up; never mind the difficult conditions they have played in or the injuries. India will want to stretch that streak to leave New Zealand needing to win every game to win this series.Form guideIndia WWWWW (last five completed matches, most recent first)New Zealand LWLWWIn the spotlightRoss Taylors miserable tour continued in Dharamsala where he got out first ball, poking at an outswinger. With 89 runs in seven innings, it will take a lot of mental strength from him to turn this tour around.This series is a great opportunity for Ajinkya Rahane to establish himself in the ODI XI beyond all doubt. KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan are injured, but when they are back, wasted starts such as the 33 in the first game can hurt his prospects.Team newsSuresh Raina has been ruled out of the second ODI too with viral fever, which should mean another chance for Kedar Jadhav. Hardik Pandya, after three wickets and the Man-of-the-Match award on debut, should get another go with the new ball.India (probable): 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Ajinkya Rahane, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Manish Pandey, 5 MS Dhoni (capt. & wk), 6 Kedar Jadhav, 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Axar Patel, 9 Amit Mishra, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Umesh YadavAfter resting for the first ODI, Matt Henry is ready to return to the XI. If it is a normal ODI pitch, Ish Sodhi should be the one making way for him.New Zealand (probable): 1 Tom Latham, 2 Martin Guptill, 3 Kane Williamson (capt.), 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Corey Anderson, 6 Luke Ronchi (wk), 7 James Neesham, 8 Mitchell Santner, 9 Doug Bracewell, 10 Matt Henry, 11 Tim SoutheePitch and conditionsThe Dharamsala pitch, which offered assistance to quicks early on, should be an aberration. With winter setting in, dew can be an issue so expect the side winning the toss to chase.Stats and triviaMS Dhoni is 61 short of becoming the fifth Indian to 9000 ODI runs.Luke Ronchi is third on the list of New Zealand wicketkeepers with most dismissals - 90Guptill needs another 144 runs to reach 5000 ODI runs. Only four New Zealand batsmen have done itQuotesEveryones determined to make amends, and there are areas to we can make adjustments in. Well be good and ready to go.Fast bowler Matt Henry knows New Zealand need to do much betterI love coming to this ground... Its a confidence booster. But were not banking on our records at Kotla.

College football national championships arent won in the first half of the season.Ask Baylor, Utah?and TCU, all of which were ranked in the top four after seven weeks of the 2015 season. Of course, none of them made the College Football Playoff, and eventual national champion Alabama was ranked No. 8 after seven games, before climbing to the top at seasons end.But the midpoint of the season at least gives us a chance to look back at what transpired during the first half. And there were plenty of thrilling finishes, compelling storylines and memorable plays and performances.Heres your chance to vote for the best in college football from the first half of the 2016 season:Offensive player of the yearSchlabach says?...?Lamar Jackson, LouisvilleThe sophomore has accounted for 30 touchdowns, which is more than 98 FBS teams have scored at this point. Enough said.Defensive player of the yearSchlabach says?...?Jabrill Peppers, MichiganPeppers has played so many positions for the Wolverines so far this season its getting hard to keep track. On defense, he has 38 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 2? sacks, six quarterback hurries and one forced fumble. Plus, hes averaging nearly 20 yards per carry on offense and is as dynamic as any kick returner in the country.Coach of the yearSchlabach says?...?Mike MacIntyre, ColoradoAfter winning a total of two Pac-12 games in MacIntyres first three seasons, the Buffaloes are 5-2 overall, 3-1 in the league, and in the thick of the Pac-12 South race.Best first-year coachSchlabach says?...?Justin Fuente, Virginia TechSure, the Hokies 34-17 loss at Syracuse last week took some luster off the first half of Fuentes first season at Virginia Tech. But the Hokies are 4-2 and upset then-No. 17 North Carolina 34-3 on the road and remain very much in the thick of a crowded ACC Coastal title race. Not bad for a guy who had the unenviable task of replacing legendary coach Frank Beamer.Biggest surprise teamSchlabach says?...West VirginiaWho else had the Mountaineers unbeaten through five games? Theyve yet to face the meat of the Big 12 schedule, but their 48-17 rout of Texas Tech on the road last week was an eye-opener. Theyre in the mix for a Big 12 title, and play No. 16 Oklahoma and No. 9 Baylor at home.Most disappointing teamSchlabach says?... Notre DameThe Fighting Irish are 2-5, their worst start since beginning 1-6 during a 3-9 campaign in 2007, and they just lost to Stanford, which didnt have star tailback Christian McCaffrey. Defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder was fired after four games, and quarterback DeShone Kizer now looks lost.Coach on the hot seatSchlabach says?... Charlie Strong, TexasBarring a complete turnaround down the stretch, the Longhorns will probably be looking for a new coach after the season. Strong has a 14-17 record in two-plus seasons in Austin, and he demoted defensive coordinator Vance Bedford earlier this month. It was the second time in as many years that he changed coordinators during the season.Coach on the riseSchlabach says?... Tom Herman, HoustonHerman is the hottest name in the coaching carousel right now, and he might have his pick among LSU, Texas (if it opens) and other openings at seasons end. The Big 12s decision to table expansion for now only increases the odds oof him leaving Houston.ddddddddddddComeback playerSchlabach says?... James Conner, PittsburghConner battled Hodgkins lymphoma during the offseason, while he worked his way back from the torn ACL that sidelined him for the 2015 season. He was declared cancer-free on May 23 and leads the Panthers with 531 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.Top freshman (offense)Schlabach says?... Jalen Hurts, AlabamaHurts, the first freshman to start at quarterback for Nick Saban, has led the No. 1 Crimson Tide to a 7-0 record. He has completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 1,385 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions, while rushing for 428 yards with eight scores.Top freshman (defense)Schlabach says?... Dexter Lawrence, ClemsonLawrence, a 6-foot-5, 340-pound defensive tackle, has helped defending ACC champion Clemson replace its top two pass-rushers from last season. He has 44 tackles, 4? tackles for loss, 2 sacks and 17 quarterback pressures in seven games.Heisman front-runnerSchlabach says?... Lamar JacksonJackson was a one-man highlight show in the first half of the season. He has already rushed for 15 touchdowns and thrown for 15 scores, and hes on pace to become only the fourth player in FBS history to finish a season with 20 touchdowns rushing and passing. Hes completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 1,806 yards and leads the No. 7 Cardinals with 832 rushing yards.Best finishSchlabach says?...?Tennessee 34, Georgia 31After the Volunteers rallied from a 17-point deficit to take a 28-24 lead with less than three minutes to play, Georgias Jacob Eason fired a 47-yard touchdown to Riley Ridley to put the Bulldogs in front 31-28 with 10 seconds left. But then Joshua Dobbs threw a 43-yard touchdown to Jauan Jennings on a Hail Mary pass on the final play, giving the Volunteers an improbable 34-31 victory on Oct. 1.Biggest upsetSchlabach says?...?Navy 46, Houston 40The Midshipmens stunning upset of the then-No. 6 Cougars on Oct. 8 might have cost Houston an AAC title and possibly a spot in the College Football Playoff. It was Navys first win over a top-10 opponent since upsetting then-No. 2 South Carolina in 1984, and ended its 0-18 drought against AP top-10 foes.Best playsSchlabach says?...?Lamar Jacksons touchdown run against Florida StateJackson had more than a few Heisman-esque moments in the first half of the season (like his leap over Syracuse cornerback Cordell Hudson), but his 47-yard touchdown run in a 63-20 rout of then-No. 2 Florida State was most memorable. It featured a nasty cut and electrifying spin move into the end zone. It even prompted Michael Vick to proclaim on Twitter that Jackson was five times better than he was at Virginia Tech.Worst playsSchlabach says?...?South Carolina State kick returner forgets to take a kneeDuring a season in which weve seen far too many players drop the ball before the goal line, South Carolina States Ahmaad Harris might have taken the prize in the Bulldogs 59-0 loss at Clemson. After a Tigers touchdown, Harris fielded the kickoff and flipped the ball to an official -- before taking a knee. Clemson recovered the fumble in the end zone for a touchdown.

Once again, the Vancouver Whitecaps did it the hard way. For the second time in five days, Martin Rennies team started slowly at home and had to dig deep to overturn an early deficit, but they finished the night by jumping into the Western Conference playoff places. This time it wasnt as big a mountain to climb. A few days earlier they were down 2-0 inside the opening 20 minutes against New England but on Wednesday there was just a one goal deficit. It was a worrying start for the Whitecaps against a Chivas USA side that arrived at BC Place winless in its last eight matches and sitting on the foot of the Western Conference. Tristan Bowens early strike gave Chivas the lead and in the opening quarter of the match, the visitors looked comfortable in possession and were dominating in midfield. The Whitecaps were unable to play through the middle of the pitch and took some time to put a "Plan B" into action. When Vancouver started to use the full width of the pitch and get the full backs to push further forward, they started to have much more success. The leadership of veterans Kenny Miller and Nigel Reo Coker was key to the transformation. At one stoppage in play when the Caps were trailing, both senior players took on the responsibility of making sure the message got through to their teammates about how they needed to change their approach. It is those leadership qualities and the drive and determination of two players who have played at the top level in Europe that helped lift the whole eleven. The goals didnt come immediately, but as the half progressed the Whitecaps grew into the game. Starting slow is something that must be addressed if this team is to make the playoffs this year. They have now conceded then first goal four games in a row. The good thing is, they are confident going forward right now, but its unlikely the goals will continue to flow at this pace. When the Whitecaps are playing well, getting the fullbacks forward is a key part of their success. It happened on Saturday with Jordan Harvey starting and finishing a move, and Harvey was again on hand to score the game-tying goal against Chivas in first half stoppage time. Its been quite a run for the left back of late. After scoring just two goals in his previous 133 career MLS appearances, he has now found the net three times in the last four games. A big impact for a player who couldnt get into the starting lineup during the first nine games of the season. Its also no coincidence that the Whitecaps recent run of goal-scoring has come at a time when Camilo has found his form. At the moment, hes likely playing as well as he ever has during his time in Vancouver. He now has eight league goals and 11 in all competitions this season. The three pronged attack with Camilo flanked by Miller and Russell Teibert continues to combine well and Teibert is revelling in his role, with two more assists against Chivas taking his total to six for the season. It will change the dynamic of the Caps attacking play when the 20-year-old from Niagara Falls is called up to Canadas Gold Cup squad, but the chance to represent his country is a much deserved reward for a player whose form has made him an integral part of the Whitecaps team. Vancouvers biggest concern remains the lack of a settled defence. There has been no MLS clean sheet since the opening day win over Toronto FC, but they are starting to get healthy at the back once again. Brad Rusin hopes to be available by the time the Caps return to action on Washington DC, and Andy OBrien also hopes to be able to play a part in at least two of the three games the Whitecaps have that week - Kansas City away and Seattle at home follow the trip to the US capital. Over the last few days, Vancouver needed to make home advantage count and they did. Back-to-back wins for the first time since the opening day of the season leaves them in a much more positive position in a crowded Western Conference playoff race. The seven goals scored in two home matches has provided plenty of entertainment for the home fans, and its certainly rarely dull watching the Whitecaps of late. Now the big question is whether they can be defensively sound on a consistent basis. That is likely to be the key in ensuring the Whitecaps stay firmly in the playoff race as the summer progresses.
