    • To begin with an admission that will seem astounding to regular readers of this site: I was more stirred by the opening scene of M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, set in the Wankhede Stadium during the 2011 World Cup final, than I had been by the actual match five years earlier.The main reason for this is that my love affair with cricket ended a decade ago, occasioned partly by the ugly, fair-weather displays of nationalism-jingoism associated with the sport (one example being a crowd attacking MS Dhonis Ranchi house in 2007). As one of the very few people in the country who didnt much care when the real Dhoni hit that winning six on April 2, 2011, I was unprepared for my reaction - the adrenaline rush, the growing anticipation - when I watched Sushant Singh Rajput as Dhoni in the dressing room deciding to go in at No. 5, padding up and heading out into the deafening arena. Call it the power of a tense, tightly constructed scene that uses camerawork, space and sound effectively, or a sudden burst of nostalgia for a once-loved sport.In other words, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story begins on a rabble-rousing note. But after this World Cup scene (which Neeraj Pandeys film will, of course, return to at the end), the narrative backtracks to a quiet afternoon in July 1981 and Dhonis birth in a Ranchi hospital ward, while his father Paan Singh Dhoni (Anupam Kher), a hard-working lower-middle-class man, waits nervously outside. A series of well-constructed vignettes follows: Dhoni as a boy being coerced by a coach to give up football for cricket, and to take up wicketkeeping (though he prefers batting); the support of his friends as it becomes evident that he has special talent and drive; the misgivings of his father, who has sensibly conservative ideas about what constitutes a secure future; repeated frustrations followed by a job in the Railways and the possibility of becoming a bada aadmi (Ticket collector se badi cheez kya ho sakti hai? as Paan Singh puts it [What can be bigger than a ticket collector?]).Rajput portrayal of Dhoni starts from when he is 16, and these early scenes have a slightly off-kilter quality - as if the actors head has been digitally superimposed on a slim teen body - but that doesnt matter after a while, because this is a fine performance. Rajput captures not just Dhonis boyish exuberance and the enigmatic smile that stops just short of being cocky, but also something of the placid, Buddha-like inscrutability that emerges in moments of stress; a sense that he is calling on inner reserves only he knows about. This is a convincing portrait of a young man who can be impetuous but is also grounded enough to buy snacks for his friends as a sort of celebration after not being selected for a team - because he never wants to forget this day of failure.The films first half, with its depiction of the rhythms of small-town life, is a reminder that director Pandey has a feel for place and period (see his recreation of 1980s Delhi in the con-job film Special 26). There are many engaging little moments, such as an early encounter, in a Bihar-Punjab match, between Dhoni and future team-mate Yuvraj Singh (played here by Herri Tangri as a regal kid whose very presence leaves most people awestruck). The cricket scenes are shot with panache and wit, even when they centre on a deadpan hero. The stage also gradually shifts to show us officials in the sports higher echelons in Mumbai and Delhi pulling strings and deciding the fate of thousands of struggling youngsters around the country.In the second half, a tonal unevenness sets in, and to a degree this is understandable given the arc of Dhonis life. It seemed natural that the early scenes would have the texture of a gritty, understated small-town story about aspiration, the sort that Hindi cinema often does so well now (in another such film, Kai Po Che! (2013), Rajput played a character whose cricketing dreams dont pan out). But once Dhoni gets his chance in the Indian team, he rises to stardom fairly quickly, and as more glamorous locations take over - plush hotel rooms, advertising studios where he says cheesy lines while endorsing a range of products - the films look and pace alter as well; it becomes glossier, more languid.That in itself is not a problem, but around this time, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story also becomes looser, more random, and whimsical in its decisions about what to show and what to leave out (there isnt even a scene that shows the circumstances that led to Dhoni becoming captain) - and when this happens, one recalls that this is largely an authorised project, with the real-life Dhoni and his associates having been consulted and kept abreast of the script. There are two romantic interludes - the first involving a girl named Priyanka (Disha Patani), who dies in a car crash, then with the cricket-indifferent Sakshi (Kiara Advani), who goes on to become Dhonis wife - that feel much too generic given how the film has unfolded up to then. This section includes an exotic-location song sequence, superfluous flashback inserts, and embarrassingly forced attempts to generate pathos (wondering about their future together, Priyanka dolefully repeats the line Bahut time hai naa hamaaray paas? [We have plenty of time, dont we?] as if she were aware of her own impending fate). Briefly glimpsed in these scenes is the suggestion that a man who is assertive as batsman and captain might be defensive-passive when it comes to relationships, but the film doesnt take this idea anywhere. The two-woman trope is handled better here than in the recent, utterly lacklustre Mohammad Azharuddin biopic Azhar, but that isnt saying much. (The goofy climactic scene of that film had the wronged Azhar being vindicated when his two wives walk into the courtroom side by side to support him and provide the ultimate character certificate!)These sequences notwithstanding, the film builds unerringly towards that World Cup win, which is presented here as the culmination of a remarkable career (never mind that real-life sport doesnt usually provide such tidy or definitive endings - Dhoni did, after all, also captain India in their 2015 loss, but there isnt space here for such troughs). Ending with real footage of the post-match celebrations is a guaranteed way of having the audience out of their seats and applauding; as mentioned above, I was one of those viewers.In the final analysis, the film worked best when it did the small moment well. In one notable scene, a subdued Dhoni explains why he is so frustrated by his Railways job - not because he considers it below him (Kaam chhota nahin lagta [I dont think the work is small], he says) but because it doesnt allow him to give cricket enough time and attention. This nuanced scene comes as a refreshing counterpoint to a shoe-polish ad that the real Dhoni did a long time ago, where he turned to the camera and said, I decided not to be ordinary. I chose to shine. A good, smooth line for the product, but also one that seemed to condescendingly imply that people in some professions can be dismissed as ordinary and that real winners can simply choose to reach the top through hard work and perseverance.M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story is a bumpy film, very stimulating in its good parts, oddly inert at other times, but in its better moments - like that Kaam chhota nahin lagta scene - it ducks the grand, overarching narratives and gives us a ground-level story about a young man following a calling with the knowledge that things might not work out perfectly, but that he has to at least give it a shot, he cant die wondering. Thats a compelling tale in itself, and a more inspirational one in some ways than the one hinted at in the films more triumphal scenes - the ones about a blazing star who was so good and so determined that he was destined to reach the top no matter what, and who might well have had that World Cup-winning six inscribed on his horoscope.Have you watched M.S.

    • PORTLAND, Ore. -- With two goals in the first 11 minutes, the Galaxy stole a 2-1 victory in Portland.Robbie Keane and Gyasi Zardes each scored for Los Angeles to put an end to the Timbers nine-game undefeated streak before a national TV audience.Zarek Valentin scored for the Timbers, who were stung when they lost veteran defender Nat Borchers to what appeared to be a left ankle injury late in the first half. Borchers was a key piece to the Timbers team that won the MLS Cup last season.It was the Galaxys fourth straight victory in Major League Soccer play, and fifth overall. Los Angeles (9-3-8) is third in the Western Conference, while Portland (7-7-8) is in sixth.Neither team added to the score in the second half.We definitely wanted to come out aggressive and I thought we did that. We didnt know what the second half had in hand, but the sun came out, turf got hotter. But I thought the substitutions were phenomenal. The guys that came on were just great and amazing and it worked well for us, Zardes said.The Timbers were already without defender Liam Ridgewell, who has a strained right calf and will also miss the MLS All-Star Game against Arsenal next week in San Jose.The Galaxy were without defender Ashley Cole because of a sore hamstring, and midfielder Steven Gerrard, who has a leg injury.The Galaxy went ahead early with Keanes easy tap in off Giovani dos Santos cross in the seventh minute. It was Keanes seventh goal in 10 overall matches this season.Los Angeles extended the lead to 2-0 in the 11th minute on Zardes bouncing header.It took us a while to get going, and we didnt make the plays we needed, Portland goalkeeper Jake Gleeson said.The slow start was a letdown for the Timbers, who were coming off a big 3-1 victory over rival Seattle last Sunday. But Portland narrowed it to 2-1 before the end of the half with Zarek Valentins a hard shot from atop the box in the 41st minute. It was his first goal of the season.Give them credit, they pushed for the goal. I think our biggest mistake in the game was conceding a goal at the end of the first half. We could have been in position to, I wouldnt say sail through that game, but deal with it a little bit better in the second half, Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said.A few moments later Portland suffered a major blow when Borchers was injured. It did not appear that the veteran defender was hurt by contact.Borchers could not stand after he was treated on the field and had to be stretchered off. Arena appeared to wish him well as he was carried to the locker room.Portland coach Caleb Porter said after the game he had no update on Borchers condition.Portlands early struggles on defense and the loss of Borchers came as rumors swirled concerning the Timbers interest in former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor, who was at the match.Portlands Darlington Nagbe got a good chance with a clear shot in the 86th minute but the ball sailed just over the crossbar. The Timbers also got a free kick late but was unable to score.The last time the two teams met the Galaxy knocked the Timbers out of the U.S. Open Cup with a 1-0 victory at Providence Park in late June. Los Angeles has advanced to the semifinals of the competition, hosting FC Dallas at StubHub Center on Aug. 10.There was bad blood between the two teams stemming from a match earlier this year, during which Nigel de Jong tackled Nagbe.Nagbe, who has also been playing with the U.S. national team, sprained his ankle. De Jong was later given a three-game suspension by the league for the hit.The sellout crowd at Providence Park loudly booed de Jong when the lineups were announced before Saturdays match.It was the first soccer match for ESPNs SportsCenter On The Road.

Nike Air Max 1 2020 . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. In a week in which there has been mild consternation in Australia about the state of the Galle surface, Angelo Mathews has made no apologies about what the visitors can expect at the SSC: It will turn again, he said - get used to it.With the islands ground curators directly employed by the board, Sri Lanka has long catered pitches to the teams needs. Against India last year, surfaces at the P Sara Oval and the SSC had seam and bounce, as it was hoped those qualities would enhance Sri Lankas chances of winning (as it happened, India won both matches).Against teams from further afield, and particularly Australia, tracks are made to spin, spin, spin.Australias cricketers have focused almost solely on their own performances. But it is clear that reports in the Australian press about pitch doctoring in Galle, have prompted indignation within the Sri Lankan team.We had to work really hard to win those two games, Mathews said. We played better cricket than them. Im hearing that the Aussies have not played good cricket, and the wickets were poor - I mean, come on, youve got to grow up. We play on the same wicket. Theyve got spinners and weve got spinners. Theyve fought really hard, but its just that our spinners have bowled extremely well. Our spinners have exploited the conditions and bowled better than them. Credit should go to the whole team, the way theyve worked extremely hard.Home-team advantage appears to be increasingly sought in Test cricket. Over the past two years, Sri Lanka has played on pitches in Christchurch and Hamilton that were so thickly layered in grass, they were almost indistinguishable from the remainder of the square. The pitch at Headingley, in May, had been another green top. And often forced to tour temperate climates in their early summer (thanks largely to economic considerations), Sri Lanka have also been made to play in the colder foreign venues, like Dunedin, Leeds and Chester-le-Street, to cite three examples from the past eight months.The SSC surface has lately ceased to be the wellspring of runs it has been in the past, and on the eve of the Test, appears at least as dry as the pitch at Galle. Sri Lanka have already confirmed their triple-spin attack - with allrounder Dhananjaya de Silvas offspin in support - will be set loose in the third Test as well.Its going to be a turner once again, Mathews said. SSC has traditionally been a very good, batting-friendly wicket. But in the last few games against South Africa and Pakistan, it did take a lot of turn. We hope that it will take a loot of turn again from day one, and we hope that it will be a spinners paradise.ddddddddddddn the batting front, the series win - and possibly some good catching - has bought openers Kaushal Silva and Dimuth Karunaratne another opportunity. Sri Lanka has recently become the most difficult country in the world to score runs as an opener, but Sri Lankas incumbent pair has nevertheless fallen short of the teams expectations. So far in this series, neither Silva nor Karunaratne has scored more than seven, in four innings apiece. Still, given their history of better performances overseas, Mathews said he and the selectors would grant them another chance.What the management and selectors think is that we can give opportunities to players who we believe can deliver, Mathews said. When it was tough in England, Kaushal fought really hard and showed his character. After two games, we dont want to throw a character like him away.Dimuth didnt score runs in England, but he had got a big hundred in New Zealand and he showed his character there as well. Hopefully, he can deliver and everyone will get through that rough patch.Dhananjaya de Silva had been one of the standout openers in first-class cricket this year, but as he is already settling in at No. 7, no other obvious opening candidates have presented themselves either. Mathews said the decision to retain Silva and Karunaratne had been made with a view to forthcoming foreign tours as well.If we have guys who have scored heavily outside the team, we can consider replacing the openers - but that has not happened, Mathews said. We have got to keep in mind that the South African series is coming in a few months time. We believe that this set of players can go to South Africa and do well. They are talented, and if they are given opportunities, they can come good.Mathews now has the opportunity to effect perhaps the most high-profile 3-0 whitewash for any Sri Lanka captain. They have three other 3-0 results, but those came against weaker Zimbabwe and Bangladesh teams, and a modest West Indies outfit propped up by mountains of Brian Lara runs. A whitewash against the worlds top-ranked team will likely be remembered fondly for years to come.We are extremely excited at the prospect, Mathews said. Weve trained harder than we had over the past two weeks, because we want to win it 3-0. Everyone is all geared up, and we havent taken the foot off the gas. ' ' '

The intent and ambition will have to be there.You need two or three tries to just be competitive against New Zealand and Ireland showed the way in Chicago, scoring five tries. Thats going to be the challenge and as coaches we embrace it. ' ' '

The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Albert Pujols finally agreed he should wait till next year. Pujols will miss the rest of the season to rest his injured left foot, the Los Angeles Angels announced Monday. The $240 million slugger gave up his hope to play again next month when the teams medical staff and front office advised him to avoid rushing back to the lineup late in the Angels dismal season. Pujols partially tore his left plantar fascia last month, and only recently got his foot out of a walking boot. While sitting out the past three weeks, Pujols repeatedly said he hoped to return at some point in September, even if the Angels remained hopelessly out of contention. He eventually acknowledged the plan made sense only as a salve to his pride. "Its not an easy decision, as competitive as I am," Pujols said at his locker before the Angels opened a series against Cleveland. "But I also understand that we (need) to look beyond the season." The three-time NL MVP hasnt played since July 26, when he partially tore his troublesome plantar fascia while running in Oakland. Pujols had been rehabilitating the injury with hopes of playing in September, but the struggling Angels inability to get into playoff contention made that plan increasingly pointless. Pujols, who has 492 career homers and 1,498 RBIs, consulted with owner Arte Moreno and general manager Jerry Dipoto before agreeing to shut himself down for the season. Moreno still owes Pujols $212 million over the next eight years in the third-biggest contract in major league history. "It was a decision of the organization, Arte and Jerry, because I dont make a decision here," said Pujols, who had career lows of 17 homers and 64 RBIs this year. "I put my uniform on and get ready to play. They said, This is whats best for the organization in the long run, and they came and brought it to me. And I just told them, Whatever you guys want to do, Im all for it. Its definitely hard, as I want to be out there, but I also understand that I cant be selfish and put myself out there." The injury has hindered Pujols all season, forcing the first baseman to be a designated hitter for 65 of his career-low 99 games. Pujols will finish with fewer than 30 homers for the first time in his remarkable 13-season career, alonng with career lows in batting average (.dddddddddddd58), on-base percentage (.330) and slugging percentage (.437). Pujols also had more than 150 hits in each of his first 12 seasons, ending the third-longest streak in modern history. Those numbers arent exactly encouraging for a player who will be 34 years old in January -- in fact, theyre a bit frightening. The Angels are determined to give Pujols every chance to get into ideal health for the spring. "The doctors think its the best course of action," manager Mike Scioscia said. "For Albert, everything would have to have been perfectly aligned for him to come back and play. I think by trying to get to that level, maybe there were some things that would have been at risk in setting the healing process back. I think that its a decision that everyone can be at peace with and get everyone ready for next year." Pujols has been diligent in his rehabilitation while still hoping to play this season. He even did 45 minutes of cardiovascular work Monday before announcing he was done for the year, and Scioscia is confident Pujols will be in top form by February when he reports to spring training in Tempe, Ariz. Its certain to be a long off-season for the Angels, all but certain to miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season despite their lavish payroll and sky-high expectations. Los Angeles has lost 23 of 34 heading into its series with the Indians, and most of Pujols teammates have been similarly disappointing. Josh Hamilton, who got a five-year deal worth $125 million from Moreno, began the week batting a career-worst .230 with 19 homers, 60 RBIs and career lows in slugging percentage (.425) and on-base percentage (.285). The Angels starting rotation has one of the majors highest ERAs, while their bullpen is one of the majors worst -- as is their team defence. With everything going wrong for the Angels this summer, Pujols decided to try to make things right in 2014. "Just look at it," Pujols said. "Unless in two weeks something happens and were only two or three games out ... is it worth it to come back and put yourself in a situation where you take that risk? Or just wait six or seven months and get yourself ready for spring training? Thats the decision we all came to." ' ' '

      DETROIT -- Dave Dombrowski will see the results of his work when Saturday nights game between Boston and Detroit begins.Not his efforts on behalf of the Red Sox, where he is the chief executive, but his work of last July when he was still president, CEO and general manger of the Tigers.Dombrowski made three non-waiver deadline deals for Detroit near the end of last July that netted the Tigers three young starting pitchers -- Matt Boyd, Michael Fulmer and Daniel Norris.Boyd started for the Tigers against the Red Sox on Thursday, Fulmer was the starter Friday night and Norris was slated to be on the mound at the beginning of Saturdays contest.Detroit fired Dombrowski scant days after the deadline passed, but before the season ended Boston had scooped him up to run their organization.The Tigers began the season with none of the three starters Dombrowski acquired on their major league roster.Fulmer was kept in the minors to learn a changeup, but was brought up early because of an injury to another starter. He settled in after a handful of starts and has been with the team since. Boyd has been up and down a couple times this year but now appears to be up to stay.Norris had a so-so spring, got hurt, and has fought through a couple more injuries before recently rejoining the rotation.Theyve done well, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said.Some of the young guys have done well. Fulmer was doing well already, Boyd has pitched well, Norris has pitched well.Weve still got time to go. Just because theyve done it so far doesnt mean its over. They just have to continue to do it.Norris (1-1, 3.47 ERA) makes his sixth start and seventh appearance of the season and will be looking to beat Boston for the first time in his short career.Norris, who has a nice mix of pitches but off-and-on control, is 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA against the Red Sox. He has pitched against them twice with one start, which was Aug. 7, 2015 when he allowed five runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings.Boston sends left-hander Drew Pomeranz (9-9, 2.99 ERA; 1-2, 4.59 with Boston) to face Detroit, the second time he has pitched against the Tigers this season.Pomeranz was making his second start with the Red Sox after being acquired in a trade with San Diego when he pitched against the Tigers on July 25. Detroit only got four hits and two runs in six innings off him but he still wound up as the losing pitcher.Pomeranz got his first win for Boston in his last start, allowing two runs on five hits at Cleveland over 7 2/3 innings.The Red Sox saw their bullpen give up a 3-1 lead in the eighth inning in losing Thursdays game to the Tigers 4-3.Weve had a number of guys with very some good performances, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Weve had some inconsistencies.When youre in those games in which you feel like youre anywhere from three to six outs away from closing down, when those get away those can be a little bit more frustrating.

      Kent 184 for 3 (Northeast 66*, Billings 55) beat Sussex 182 for 8 (Finch 54, Coles 4-39) by seven wicketsScorecard Kent progressed to the quarter-finals of the Royal London Cup after they beat an inexperienced Sussex side by seven wickets at Hove. A stand of 103 in 112 balls for the third wicket between Sam Billings and Sam Northeast provided the platform for Kents comfortable victory in a match reduced to 43 overs because of rain.Sussex looked well short of a competitive total when they were restricted to 182 for 8. Their innings revolved around two partnerships, one of 68 in 16 overs for the fourth wicket between Harry Finch and Craig Cachopa and another of 50 for the fifth wicket between Finch and Fynn Hudson-Prentice.Sussex, who were already out of the competition, experimented with a young line-up, with Hudson-Prentice (20), Christian Davis (23) and Abidine Sakande (21) all coming into the side. Sakande was making his List A debut, while Hudson-Prentice and Davis had played just five previous matches between them at this level.Almost immediately, Sussex were floundering at 5 for 3 in the fifth over. Matt Coles, generating plenty of pace and bounce from the Cromwell Road end, dismissed both openers in his first two overs. First Luke Wright, surprised by the bounce, edged behind to Billings, who took the ball one-handed high to his right. In his next over Coles shaped one across the left-handed Wells and Billings again took the catch.Davis was then athletically caught by Alex Blake at midwicket off Mitchell Claydon for a duck. But Finch and Cachopa, both cutting well against the shorter delivery, revived the innings until the unlucky Cachopa had his off stump knocked back by one that kept low from Darren Stevens.Finch went on to make 54 from 88 balls and Hudson-Prentice scored a stylish 48 off 54 deliveries but there wasnt much more batting from Sussex as the impressive Coles finished with 4 for 39.When Kent batted they lost Daniel Bell-Drummond, who was bowled by Ollie Robinson for 14, and Joe Denly, who was given out caught behind off Sakande for 24 after a long consultation between the umpires.But Northeast, with an unbeaten 66 from 77 deliveries, with five fours and a straight six off Danny Briggs, and Billings, who hit eight fours in a fluent 55, made sure there would no slip-up. When Billings was bowled by Davis they required just another 29 runs and they got home with 12.1 overs to spare. Air Force 1 Alte Bianche Outlet . 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday.

      Update: According to an ELeague spokesperson, The decision to replace Luminosity and SK Gaming was solely based on the violation of league rules and the agreements in place with all competing teams that were established prior to our first season.Original story continues below.Turner Sports and WME|IMGs ELeague announced Wednesday both SK Gaming and Luminosity were removed from Season One due to making roster changes that do not comply with ELeague rules. However, according to sources close to both teams and the league, ELeague was originally only going to sanction Luminosity, and award its playoff spot to its players, who now compete under the SK Gaming banner.This was prevented by a petition with signatures from the owners of seven participating organizations: Cloud9, Counter Logic Gaming, Echo Fox, NRG Esports, OpTic Gaming, Team Liquid, and Team SoloMid. The petition, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN, says that each team in good conscience, may not be able to compete if ELeague were to kick out Luminosity, yet leave the spot to the players, as it violates ELeague tournament entry agreement signed by each team participating in the league and the ELeague rules. Those agreements state that the spots in ELeague are owned and operated by the teams, not the players on the team.The petition was addressed to Turner Sports president Lenny Daniels, WME|IMG SVP and associate general counsel John Cooper, and ELeague commissioner Min-Sik Ko.The petition also outlines four different incidents, including the transfer of players from the Luminosity Gaming organization to SK Gaming, a tweet by Ko from May 30, and an allegation that ELeague was going to sanction only the Luminosity organization originally. Later in the petition, it alleges an inherent conflict of interest within the ELeague leadership, citing Ko as a former employee of SK Gaming and what the petition calls a well-known SK loyalist.Giving Luminositys spot to SK Gaming would have given SK a second chance in ELeague, as its original Danish team was eliminated in week three nearly a month ago. Since the Brazilian players who formerly competed under the Luminosity brand were still competing, SK would have simply taken over from that point.The petition goes on to suggest that ELeague can disqualify both parties and teams from the league for breaking the agreed-upon rules -- an action that was taken earlier Wednesday -- but that giving the spot to SK would greatly prejudice the interest of the teams on the petition.The original dispute between SK Gaming and Luminosity began in March after the Brazilian players, coach, and manager under the Luminosity banner at that time -- the likes of Gabriel FalleN Toledo, Fernando fer Alvarenga, Marcelo coldzera David, Lincoln fnx Lau, Epitacio TACO Pessoa, Wilton zews Prado, and Ricardo dead Sinigaglia -- signed forward contracts with SK Gaming to begin on July 1. In December 2015, however, the same parties signed a letter of intent with Luminosity to compete under its banner for an additional two years, meaning it would play under Luminosity until June 2018.In May, ESPN reported on the situation, with Luminosity Gaming owner Steve Maida accusing SK Gaming owner Alex Müller of poaching and tortious interference, as well as the players involved telling ESPN that they wanted to remain with the Luminosity organization. Via veteran Counter-Strike analyst Duncan Thorin Shields, SK Gaming said that it found the letters of intent to be invalid after consulting with legal counsel.On June 24, Luminosity and SK Gaming settled their differences and came to an agreement for the players to move to the SK Gaming banner. Their first competition under the SK banner is currently taking place at ESL One Cologne 2016 at Laxness Arena in Cologne, Germany.Although the dispute has been settled, the Brazilian players involved expressed outrage on Twitter, with TACO alleging that his team was not notified of the ruling before it was publicly announced. Other parts of the Counter-Strike community, including other players, well-known analysts, and journalists, have also been outspoken against the ruling.LOL was great to know that we are out of @EL via Twitter.

HOUSTON -- Gary Sanchez has quickly supplanted seven-time All-Star Brian McCann as the New York Yankees top catcher.The 23-year-old hit his fifth home run since he was brought up on Aug. 3, his fourth in four games, during the Yankees 7-4 loss to Toronto on Wednesday.Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner, speaking at the owners meetings in Houston, said general manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi will decide the future of McCann, who is signed through 2018.It was always the case that Sanchez at some point was going to come up and hopefully come up to stay, Steinbrenner said. So well cross that bridge in the offseason when we come to it. But McCanns a great player, too, so well just have to figure that out.Carlos Beltran was traded to Texas and Alex Rodriguez was released as part of the Yankees recent youth movement, and McCann is the latest veteran to lose playing time.Sanchez, who made a one-game call-up as a designated hitter in May, has started seven of 14 games behind the plate since he rejoined the Yankees this month and has been the DH for six more. McCann has caught just twice since then and been the DH seven times, while backup catcher Austin Romine has been behind the plate five times.McCann called Sanchez one of the better, if not the best, young catchers since Ive been in the big leagues. He understands what Girardi is doing with Sanchez, whose defense improved considerably this year while at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.He told us its the time when hes going to play and play a lot, McCann said. Listen, hes a future All-Star, year in and year out. There are not many guys walking around with that talent. Its going to be nice seeing him grow into that player.Thus ffar with the Yankees, Sanchez is hitting .dddddddddddd360 with 11 RBI in 53 plate appearances, bringing energy to the lineup along with right fielder Aaron Judge and first baseman Tyler Austin, who homered back-to-back in their big league debuts Saturday.McCann is batting .231 this season with 15 homers and 45 RBI. He was born in Athens, Georgia, went to high school in Duluth and could be sought by the Atlanta Braves, who drafted him in 2002. He made all his All-Star appearances with Atlanta, then left after the 2013 season to sign an $85 million, five-year deal with the Yankees.McCann wouldnt discuss the future, saying Im not going to get into all that.His contract includes salaries of $17 million in each of the next two seasons and a $15 million club option for 2019 with no buyout. The option would become guaranteed if McCann has 1,000 plate appearances combined in 2017-18 and makes 90 starts at catcher in 2018 and is not on the disabled list at the end of the season. If the option becomes guaranteed, McCann can void it.Sanchez was bumped up to the cleanup spot for the first time Wednesday, with Judge right behind him.It says that theyve handled whatever weve given them so far, Girardi said. Obviously, these are two young men that have the ability to be very productive. Some guys out of the lineup today, we moved them up against the lefty, let them go get it. Obviously, your hope is over time they can become middle-of-the-order hitters.---AP Baseball Writer Mike Fitzpatrick and AP freelance writer Doug Gould contributed to this report from New York.

      The Edmonton Oilers have gone 10 seasons without a playoff appearance, employed seven head coaches, won the draft lottery four times and lost 488 of 704 games.Yet the only number that matters now is 97.Thats the number on the sweater of generational talent Connor McDavid, whos going into his second NHL season and leading the Oilers into a new era in their new arena. Edmonton will play the first regular-season game at sparkling Rogers Place against the rival Calgary Flames on Oct. 12, raising the curtain on a fresh start for an organization in need of one.Rogers Place isnt the arena McDavid built, though it should be the scene for the 19-year-olds rapid ascent as one of hockeys brightest stars.He kind of adds another level of excitement, center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said. Its pretty cool with the new building and everything. Its all kind of coming together at the right time, so now weve just got to go out there and perform, obviously. Its exciting the direction that were heading. Connor is going to be a big part of that. Its going to be fun.Winning the 2015 draft lottery to get McDavid set into motion big changes for the Oilers organization, including the hiring of Peter Chiarelli as general manager. This offseason, Chiarelli signed big power forward Milan Lucic, traded Taylor Hall for defenseman Adam Larsson and drafted Finnish winger Jesse Puljujarvi to complement McDavid, Nugent-Hopkins, winger Jordan Eberle, center Leon Draisaitl and defenseman Darnell Nurse -- all first-round picks.A broken collarbone limited McDavid to 45 games in his rookie season, though he still incredibly put up 48 points and was a finalist for the Calder Trophy. He may have a big, new linemate in the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Lucic, who signed a $42 million, seven-year deal to score goals, dish out assists and hits, and serve as something of McDavids bodyguard for some of his prime seasons.The first thing that stands out about him is just how big he is, McDavid said of Lucic. I didnt know he was that big. Hes a great skater and can really shoot the puck. I think hes definitely going to be a great asset for us.Pencil Lucic in on McDavids left wing and put it in ink that the pride of Newmarket, Ontario, will be the youngest captain in NHL history at 19 years, 273 days old when he wears the C for the first time.Here are some other things to watch with the Oilers this season:LIGHTS, CAM, TALBOTGoaltender Cam Talbot enters the first season of his $12.5 million, three-year deal needing to prove he deserves to be a franchise goaltender. After a rough start last season, the former New York Rangers backup had a 2.37 goals-against average and .922 save percentage in his final 40 games. Edmonton would like Talbot to put up those kinds of performances behind a work-in-progress defense and steal some games along the way.THE BIG GERMANLeon Draisaitl could be a matchup nightmare for opponents as the third-line center behind McDavid and Nugent-Hopkins. Stanley Cup-caliber teams are built down the middle and on the back end, and the Oilers are well on their way if the slick, big 20-year-old German continues to adjust to the NHL.MCLELLAN MAGICThe Todd McLellan-coached, star-studded 23-and-under Team North America dazzled at the World Cup with the kind of fast, exciting hockey that had fans drooling about the future of the sport. He has McDavid and Nugent-Hopkins in Edmonton, too, but knows he cant play that kind of up-and-down, blistering pace for 82 NHL games.Well continue to coach with the same concepts, McLellan said. The team that we have in Edmonton is a really good team but not at the same talent level, and thats natural.DEFENSE UNDER CONSTRUCTIONChiarelli has worked to remake the Oilers blue line by acquiring Larsson and signing Andrej Sekera in the summer of 2015, but its still not at a playoff level. The development of Nurse and 23-year-old Oscar Klebom is essential to that, and it could take another offseason of moves.REPLACING HALLGetting Larsson from the New Jersey Devils cost Edmonton its leading scorer in Hall, who had 26 goals and 65 points last season. The Oilers may be better in the long run after dealing Hall, but theyll have to make up for his production somewhere. Hint: Keep McDavid healthy.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno Stitched Hurricanes Jerseys .

They are a front-running team, McKelvin said. If you go out there and make some stops, they eventually are going to be dying down.Falcons free safety Ricardo Allen echoed Quinns thoughts that the Falcons dont dwell on opinions outside their building in comments to ESPNs Vaughn McClure.Everybodys got thheir opinion, man.dddddddddddd Theres always going to be someone who comes out and says something to try and challenge another team, Allen told ESPN. We dont worry about people on the outside. We dont worry about nobody else. We just worry about ourselves. We worry about who we are as a team because we know who we are. And we know when were playing really good ball, were one of the best around.We stay in our locker room. We dont worry about when anybody else talks about us. We dont even bring that stuff up. I didnt even hear about [McKelvins comments], so I dont even really care about that stuff. You can talk all you want to. Have fun with that. I aint with the talking. I play ball. I just want to play ball, man.The NFC South-leading Falcons (6-4) have a bye this week. ' ' '

      Dean Cosker, the left-arm spinner who was the last remaining active player of Glamorgans 1997 County Championship winning side, has announced his retirement after a 21-year career.Cosker made his Glamorgan debut in 1996 and then took 20 wickets in the trophy-winning campaign the following season. He reached as far as England A level in the late 1990s and remained a consistent performer, highlighted by the fact that his best first-class season came in 2010 when he claimed 51 wickets at 22.11, but he had not played a Championship match this season.He was also immensely valuable in white-ball cricket, enjoying his best T20 season in 2015 when he took 17 wickets. Overall in first-class cricket in finished with 597 wickets, 260 in List A and 100 in T20.Alongside his bowling he was renowned as an outstanding fielder, so much so that he was used by England as a substitute during the 2015 Ashes Test in Cardiff.I feel very humbled and privileged to have had the opportunity to represent Glamorgan over the past 21 years, said Cosker. I would like to thank all the coaches, players and particularly my family that have made this possible and who have continuously supported my career throughout.I have been very lucky to rub shoulders with some of the games finest players and characters, and both on the field and in the changing room I have been able to share some fantastic times that will stay with me as great memories for years to come.I have loved my time at Glamorgan and feel proud to say this was the only county I ever wanted to play for. Leaving the spin bowling department at Glamorgan in an exciting place has always been important to me and, with positive young spin bowlers at the club coming to the fore, I believe this is the case. I am really excited about the next chapter in my life and the challenges that it will bring.Hugh Morris, the Glamorgan chief executive, who was also part of the 1997 Championship-winning side, said: Dean has enjoyed a terrific career with Glamorgan and has been a great ambassador for the Club both on and off the field for more than 20 years.It was a pleasure to play with Dean at the beginning of his career and it has been great working with him over the last few years as a professional cricketer.

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Chargers players and coaches say they arent distracted by increasing chatter that the team will relocate to Los Angeles.Ron Rivera wonders otherwise.Rivera, the coach of the Carolina Panthers, knows all about the Chargers long, bruising stadium saga because he was on San Diegos staff from 2007-10.During a conference call with San Diego reporters Wednesday, Rivera was asked about some of the problems encountered this year by the Chargers (5-7), who visit the defending NFC champion Panthers (4-8) on Sunday.Rivera mentioned injuries, and then segued into the possible relocation.Some other things that have hurt them, too, has been ... I dont want to call it a distraction, but wanting to get a new stadium, Rivera said. I know Mr. Spanos would love to be able to keep that team there -and again, that comes up every year and quite honestly it weighs a little bit on the players -- at least I believe it does, from my opinion.But at the end of the day, whatevers going to happen is going to happen for the organization. I really do believe its a tremendous organization. I think the Spanos family has done a great job there.On Nov. 8, San Diego voters overwhelmingly defeated the Chargers ballot measure asking for $1.15 billion in hotel occupancy taxes to help pay for a $1.8 billion downtown stadium and convention center annex to replace aging Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley.The next day, team chairman Dean Spanos said he wouldnt make any announcements about the teams future until after the season.Since then, there have been numerous reports, based on anonymous sources, that the Chargers feel they have no option but to move to Los Angeles, where they would join the Rams in a stadium in Inglewood scheduled to open in 2019.The Chargers must decide by Jan. 15 if theyll exercise their option to move to L.A. or give it one more try in San Diego.The Chargers and their fans went through this last year, when Spanos partnered with the rival Oakland Raiders on a plan to build a stadium in the LA suburb of Carson. When the Chargers hosted the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 20, many fans felt it was the teams final game in San Diego, its home since 1961.But a month later, NFL owners overwhelmingly rejected the Chargers-Raiders plan in favor of the Rams Inglewood plan. However, owners gave Spanos the option to relocate. If Spaanos doesnt take that option, it will then go to the Raiders, unless they commit to Las Vegas.ddddddddddddQuarterback Philip Rivers, a father of eight, would certainly be affected by the Chargers moving.Still, he says the increasing talk about moving isnt a distraction.No. I dont think anybodys thinking about that in the fourth quarter. You dont just start thinking about it, Rivers said. Shoot, I dont give much thought to things I dont know enough about.Asked about hearing relocation talk for a second straight season, Rivers said: Again, I dont like to downplay the situation, but I think its been exhausted to what I can add to it or say about it. If it were to happen or doesnt happen, then thered be something. Every day, I dont look to see if theres a new report. I doubt that theres one guy in there talking about it right now, would be my guess.Some reports have said the Chargers could play the next two years at the StubHub! Center in Carson. That would seem a bit preposterous, since it seats only 27,000.Rivers has been to the StubHub! Center, when his younger brother, Stephen, practiced there for an all-star game.Its a neat little stadium, Philip Rivers said.And the Chargers playing there?Itll be a story if it ever gets to that, Rivers said.USA Today reported Tuesday that the Chargers have been talking with the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, home of the Southern California Trojans and, temporarily, the Rams. However, the Coliseum Commissions lease with USC, which runs the stadium, allows only one NFL team to play there temporarily. The commissions next regularly scheduled meeting is Jan. 26, 11 days after the Chargers must decide whether theyre moving.The Chargers attempt to move last year has turned off many fans. That, coupled with another down year, has dropped home attendance to an average of average of 55,488, worst in the NFL, at 70,000-seat Qualcomm Stadium.The Chargers last home game this season is Jan. 1 against Kansas City. They have been all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons.---Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at http://twitter.com/berniewilson---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '

      Brownlow medallist Nat Fyfe will consider free agency as his AFL contract with Fremantle expires next season.The Dockers have struggled in the absence of an injured Fyfe this season to slip to 16th on the ladder after playing in last years grand final.Fyfe wants to see a plan for an improvement at the club before he commits his future there.Free agency is that players have a say in their careers and it would be remiss of me not to look at every possible option, Fyfe told Seven News.But if I see a strong future at Fremantle then thats where I will be playing my footy.The 24-year-old has started light running after having pins removed from his lower leg last after he broke it in Fremantles round-five loss to Carlton in April.He is hoping to return to full training this week, however doubts will continue to linger over his long-term fitness given he has already undergone 14 surgeries throughout his career.

Custom Packers Super Bowl Jerseys . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. SAN FRANCISCO -- Donning fresh postseason victory gear, the Chicago Cubs gathered on the mound and posed for a group photo. They jumped up and down, saluted the fans cheering Cub-bies! behind the visiting dugout and then took the party inside.Step one in their October quest? Check.Yet every one of manager Joe Maddons men recognizes the task ahead. The club with baseballs best regular-season record at 103-58 is being counted on to end a 108-year championship drought and all the pent-up frustration in the Windy City.Chicago is headed back to the NL Championship Series for a second straight year, eager to erase the memory of a four-game sweep to the New York Mets a season ago. Once Matt Moores stellar night was complete for San Francisco, the Cubs rallied with a four-run ninth in a 6-5 victory Tuesday that eliminated the Giants in Game 4 of their NL Division Series.The same Giants who had won the World Series in every even year this decade -- 2010, 12 and 14 -- and had succeeded in 10 straight postseason games when facing elimination.This is a special group, Maddon said. Its pretty easy when you want to have kids act like kids. Listen, but you see them on the field, they play. We play hard. I think we play it right.Blue-clad loyalists stuck around the ballpark long after the final out, cheering and singing for the team favored to win the World Series from the start. The fans waited about an hour before finally heading for the exits.Now, the Cubs go home to wait out Thursdays Game 5 of the Dodgers-Nationals series and have a couple of days to rest their legs before Saturdays NLCS opener.Maddon will likely hand the ball to veteran left-hander Jon Lester in Game 1 at Wrigley Field because he wasnt needed in a potential Game 5.Chicago hasnt been to the World Series since 1945, the year Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis suppposedly placed his hex on North Siders.ddddddddddddo pressure, certainly not with this group that declines to feed the superstition chatter. No goat fear here, not with a roster packing the talent and the pluck to navigate the nerviest late-game situation.Nobody really cares in there about a curse or a goat or anything else, Lester said. If we make a mistake, were not going to blame it on a curse or anything else like that. Were going to blame it on ourselves and be accountable for it and move on to the next play or the next moment.We got too many young guys in there that dont even know what that stuff is, he added. So, its almost better to play naive and just go out and worry about us, worry about the Cubs and not anything else in the past or, like I said, any animals.In the ninth, Javier Baez hit a go-ahead single after pinch hitter Willson Contreras tied it with a two-run single. Flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman closed it out, rebounding after his blown save Monday cost Chicago in a 13-inning 6-5 loss.Since day one, we came to play hard, Baez said.Maddon and many others have spoken of the Cubs commitment to playing all 27 outs. That resolve has become a defining characteristic for the players hoping to show Wrigleyville a party for the ages.This is big. This is really big. Anytime you do that with a group, it just does a lot for that particular groups confidence, said outfielder Ben Zobrist, who won a title with Kansas City last year. Every group has to kind of find that identity. We did it during the season, but you still have to find that identity in the postseason as well.It proved to be true that thats the kind of team we have. Tonight we were able to put a good comeback together. ' ' '

      INDIANAPOLIS -- Scott Tolzien and Stephen Morris see every play as an opportunity.So when they trot out Thursday night at Cincinnati, the Indianapolis Colts backup quarterbacks know this game matters.Youre always trying to be sharp, Tolzien said. The way I look at it, its another opportunity to go play in a football game.On this team, those chances usually have been rare.From 1998 through 2010, Peyton Manning started every meaningful game the Colts played. Then after drafting Andrew Luck with the top overall pick in 2012, Indy plugged the rookie into the starting lineup and he started every meaningful game for the next three-plus seasons.Fortunately for the Colts, when Luck went down last season, they had a capable backup in 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck.But when Hasselbeck announced his retirement during the offseason, it didnt take the Colts long to sign Tolzien. He spent the previous three seasons backing up Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, and they still had Morris, a developmental quarterback who finished last season on the Colts roster.Now, with the preseason winding down, the Colts will likely follow their traditional tack by giving most of their starters an extra night off to get healthy for the regular-season opener, Sept. 11 against Detroit.With so many injuries already, who can blame them?Besides, Tolzien and Morris cherish getting some extra work.Its being consistent, making plays, getting the ball out quicker, being decisive with my feet, Morris said, rattling off this weeks goals. You have to make sure youre in the books and preaching the right things.This time, though, the two quarterbacks could be vying for one open spot.Tolzien is listed at No. 2 on Indys depth chart with Morris on the No. 3 line.While coach Chuck Pagano has repeatedly brushed aside any discussion of a challenge to Tolzien, Morris has shown promise in his limited playing time and in a normal season might get one of the precious 53 roster spots.Its not so clear now.With the possibility of 10 or more injured players taking spots on the 53-man active roster, Pagano acknowledged Monday that trimming the roster from 75 to 53 might be tricky. Things could get even more complicated when they fill out the 10-player practice squad because the Colts may need all 10 active for Week 1.Morris said Tuesday he has no idea if the Colts plan to keep two or three quarterbacks, though they have usually had only two during the Manning and Luck eras.Either way, Morris is eager to give it his best shot.Its exciting, he said. Its a great opportunity to put something good on film. Any time youre on the field, you want to put good film on.Tolzien also can use the work.A year ago, he threw only one pass -- a 4-yard completion at Arizona in Week 16. The only other regular-season action for the six-year veteran came in 2013, when Rodgers was injured. He played in three games that season, started two and finished 55 of 90 for 717 yards with one touchdown and five interceptions.Hell probably make his second preseason start Thursday and he wants to make the most of it.It is crunch time, but were going to play to win, he said. You play your best when youre prepared and youre comfortable.Game notes Indianapolis got under the 75-player limit Tuesday by waiving linebacker Anthony Sarao and cornerback Darius White and putting safety Dezmen Southward on injured reserve. ... Indy then re-signed safety Alden Darby, who was released Sunday. ... Left tackle Anthony Castonzo did not practice Tuesday because of a strained triceps. Pagano said he expected Castonzo to return to practice Wednesday. Tight end Dwayne Allen also sat out for the second straight day with a sore hip. ...

      Golf will be making a comeback to the Olympic fold after a gap of 112 years, and India are well-represented, especially in the mens section of the competition. Tournament qualification rules limited a maximum of four entrants per nation among the top 15 in the world rankings, and only two more per country from the rest (provided none of them were in the top 15), and this meant both world number 62 Anirban Lahiri and world number 211 SSP Chawrasia were virtually assured of spots in Rio even before some of the top golfers started pulling out of the event. Lahiri brings experience of having won a silver in the team event of the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, while for Chawrasia, this will be his first time representing India, though he did play for the Asian team alongside Lahiri in the EurAsia Cup earlier this year under the leadership of Jeev Milkha Singh.Aditi Ashok is the only woman to have made the cut to the top 60, and the 18-year-old is in her early days as a pro on the ladies tour.

Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. Wisconsin faces an early elimination game against No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.The No. 8 Badgers are rested after a bye week and, after a seven-point loss to Michigan, Wisconsin could be scratched off the contender list for the College Football Playoff at midseason with a second defeat.Ohio State has become so accustomed to success that a 21-point win for the Buckeyes can be framed as only a moderate success.Such was the case after second-ranked Ohio States 38-17 win over Indiana on Saturday in Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes were good, but not as good as they had been in their first four games of the season.The Buckeyes will file away the victory and move on to a more formidable challenge on Saturday (8 p.m., ABC) in a Big Ten showdown at No. 8 Wisconsin, which had a bye last week after losing for the first time this season the previous week at No. 4 Michigan in a hard-fought 14-7 decision.The Hoosiers came ready to play and challenged the Buckeyes for much of the afternoon, but in the end they couldnt match Ohio States superior talent.For the first time this season, Ohio State didnt move the ball as efficiently as it had done against the likes of Oklahoma and Rutgers. Quarterback J.T. Barrett was limited to 93 yards passing, completing just 9 of 21 throws, and was forced to run 26 times for 137 yards to help the offense get some traction against Indiana.The Buckeyes game plan was to hit some deep balls to loosen up the Hoosiers defense, but Barrett either misfired, receivers ran bad routes or the coverage blanketed his wideouts, forcing his excessive number of runs. He also faced some pressure from the Indiana pass rush that the offensive line at times found difficult to contain.Were going to go to the drawing board and clean it up next week, Ohio State freshman running back Mike Weber said. Eliminate (mistakes) and get bigger wins.Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, though, isnt going to worry too much about Barrett taking off with the ball considering his dynamic playmaking ability thats reminiscent of Braxton Miller a few years ago.Ill tell you, its part of playing quarterback in this offense. Youre one of the best players in the country, were going to play you and use you and do what you do well, Meyer said. Were aware of (the number of rushes) and have to be somewhat intelligent about how we do it, but go win the game.Meanwhile, the defense continues to play at a high level. Ohio State forced two turnovers, including safety Malik Hookers fourth interception of the season, and made some key stops. The biggest was a stop inside the 5-yard line in the second half with Indiana threatening to make it a seven-point game.The Buckeyes realize they have to pplay better this week than they did against Indiana.ddddddddddddOutstanding. The typical Wisconsin, Meyer said. I think it goes back to (former) Coach (Barry) Alvarez and what hes built up there. I think Coach (Paul) Chryst ... I can push play and see its one of the best coached teams in the United States of America. Very good players. They have their niche.Playing at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison is never easy. The fans are hostile and Wisconsin will be gunning to knock off Ohio State, which lost there as recently as 2010.Wisconsin is in the midst of the rigorous part of its Big Ten schedule. Coming off a bye week after the tough loss at Michigan and facing the prime-time matchup with Ohio State on Saturday, the Badgers travel to Iowa the following week and then return home to face Nebraska.I think were all excited (to face Ohio State at night), Wisconsin redshirt freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook said. Its going to be an awesome atmosphere here at night in front of our fans. I cant wait to play.Hornibrook, a first-year starter, will have his work cut out for him against the Ohio State defense, which is ranked in the top 10 statistically in every major category. He had trouble against Michigan, completing just 9 of 25 passes for 88 yards and threw three interceptions.This will be another new challenge, a new experience for him, Chryst said. But Im very confident that hell be himself and thats a good thing.Wisconsin is known for its smash-mouth style featuring outstanding running backs in recent years such as Montee Ball and Melvin Gordon. But the Badgers are eighth in the Big Ten in rushing at 161.6 yards per game and the Buckeyes are No. 2 in the conference defending the run, which means Wisconsin could have trouble establishing a ground game.It is a good scheme, sound, Chryst said of Ohio States defense. And theyve got guys that play it well. And I think they are playing with confidence.Defensively, the Badgers get after opponents. In the loss to Michigan, their defense neutralized a Wolverines offense that piled up 77 points against Rutgers last week. Wisconsin held Michigan to one touchdown until the fourth quarter when the Wolverines scored the winning points.Theyre outstanding. Theyre what theyve been, Meyer said. Its amazing that theyve had coach transition. Theyve changed defensive coordinators and its a very similar defense. Its Wisconsins defense. I like that. I like the fact that we change coordinators on offense, its Ohio States offense, so Wisconsin youve got to give the leadership a lot of credit. One of the best teams in America. ' ' '

      LOS ANGELES -- Jef Billings, a renowned costume designer who directed some of figure skatings biggest names with Stars on Ice, has died. He was 71.He died at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday, said Stars on Ice. Close friend and assistant Regina Winters said he died of natural causes.Billings was with the skating show since its inception.

      Baylor interim coach Jim Grobe said Monday that not only does he not know if former Bears player Shawn Oakman was in the teams locker room at Rice last Friday, he does not even know who Oakman is.The 6-foot-9 Oakman, who became the schools all-time sacks leader in 2015, was indicted in July by a grand jury on charges of second-degree felony sexual assault.I dont know who Shawn Oakman is. So I wouldnt be able to recognize him if he walked in the door right now, Grobe said when asked during his weekly news conference about whether Oakman was in the locker room. There were a lot of people around at the end of the game. There are always a lot of people around. But I had no issues. I didnt know he was there, or know who he is.Earlier, ESPN.com quoted a Baylor spokesman as saying that Oakman remained in the hallway entrance outside the locker room, but never went into the locker room. The same spokesman later clarified to ESPN.com that Oakman did in fact enter the locker room.At that same time, Baylor also issued a statement:Baylor did not invite Shawn Oakman onto the field or into the locker room. He made his way there after the game but did not address the team. As indicated earlier today, Coach Grobe did not recognize that Oakman was in the locker room area as Coach gave his post-game address. Oakman spoke personally with a few former teammates and left the stadium. Oakman is not permitted in Baylor-owned facilities nor in the locker room at future away games.Police in Waco arrested Oakman in April after a Baylor graduate student accused him of sexually assaulting her at his apartment on April 3. Under Texas law, second-degree felony sexual assault typically carries a sentence of two to 20 years in state prison and a fine up to $10,000.Hes a great guy, just in a bad situation, Baylor quarterback Seth Russell told the Dallas Morning News on Monday. Were not gonna hold anything against him. He was part of the team and hes still part of Baylor. Were going to love him as much as anybody else.Oakmans attorney has maintained that the sex in this case was consensual.Oakman, who was the preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year last summer, went undrafted in the spring after his arrest.Later in his news conference, Grobe -- who was hired by Baylor on May 30 -- was pressed again about not knowing who Oakman is.Ive heard that Shawn Oakman was at the game, he replied. But I dont know who Shawn Oakman is. If he walked in today, I wouldnt know that was Shawn Oakman.Baylor, ranked 16th in the AP poll, opens Big 12 play this weekend at home against Oklahoma State.ESPNs Heather Dinich contributed to this report.

An imperious Caitlin Bassett performance in the shooting circle has led the Diamonds to a 62-50 trouncing of the Silver Ferns in their Constellation Cup netball clash in Auckland.Bassett, 28, nailed 56 from 65 attempts on goal as a tight opening quarter gave way to Australian dominance in all thirds of the court.Surprised 53-51 at home by the Kiwis in Launceston, coach Lisa Alexander opted to pair the 193cm Bassett with the similarly tall Gretel Tippett in attack to loft balls into Bassetts path.The move paid dividends, with the Perth-based Bassett breaking her shooting record for most goals in a game.The Diamonds will look to wrap up the series in Invercargill on Thursday after taking a 2-1 lead and holding a strong points differential.There was little to separate the worlds best two netball sides in the first quarter, with both outfits looking sharp in the shooting circle.Silver Ferns shooter Bailey Mes nailed a perfect seven from seven, while Bassett notched 11 from 15 under veteran Anna Harrisons tight defensive pressure.The quarter closed at 13 goals apiece, with New Zealand looking lively after sluggish first-quarter performances in Sydney and Launceston.ddddddddddddHowever, the improved first-quarter showing was to prove a false dawn for the Silver Ferns as Australia came into their own.Bassett landed 13 from 14 as New Zealands rear-guard struggled to nullify her height and reach advantage, while Kiwi goal attack Te Paea Selby-Rickit hit eight from eight.But, it was the Diamonds who began to push ahead, earning a 29-25 halftime lead.Star attack Maria Tutaia was injected at the break for the Silver Ferns but could only watch on as Australias midcourt laid on goal after goal for Bassett.The Diamonds stretched their lead to 10 with four minutes of the quarter remaining, before going into the final stanza 46-38 ahead.The match took on a similar complexion in the final period, as the Silver Ferns struggled to peg back their rivals despite the influence of Tutaia, who netted 11 from 15 in her time on court.Bassett hit all 16 of her sides final-quarter goals to seal the match at 62-50.

      Nico Rosberg topped a wet/dry second practice session for the Austrian Grand Prix, beating teammate Lewis Hamilton by just 0.019s.The two Mercedes drivers set their times either side of a rainstorm midway through the session, with Rosberg clocking his on super-soft tyres on a bone-dry circuit, while Hamilton used ultra-softs on a track that was still damp off the racing line after the rain. Hamiltons lap was also set on his second flying lap on a fresh set of tyres after he aborted his first attempt after coming across a slow-moving Esteban Gutierrez at Turn 5.Rosberg attempted a quick lap on ultra-softs at the end of the session but after setting fastest first and second sectors dived into the pit, opting not to set a lap time. His best effort was still 0.6s shy of his best effort in the fully-dry morning session, suggesting none of the times offer a true representation of each drivers ultimate pace.Nico Hulkenberg set the third fastest time with a late attempt on the ultra-soft tyres, finishing the session 0.613s off Rosberg. Sebastian Vettel was marginally slower and fourth fastest, but spun off on a late attempt on ultra-soft tyres. The rear of the Ferrari snapped out under braking, pitching car into a 360 degree spin before it beached itself in the gravel.I dont know what happened there, Vettel said over the team raido. I lost completely the car when I hit the brakes.Daniel Ricciardo set the fifth fastest time ahead of Carlos Sainz, Max Verstappen, Kimi Raikkonen, who took a trip through the gravel at Turn 5 early in the session, Valtteri Bottas and Jenson Button in tenth. Sainz was the only driver in the top ten not to set a time on the ultra-soft tyres, using super-softs to secure sixth place, 0.746s off Rosbergs best lap.The heavy rain approached the circuit from the east, drenching Turns 8 and 9 first while the first sector remained bone dry. A number of drivers were caught out by the sudden downpour, with several spinning off at Turn 8 before recovering to the pit lane. At its peak, the rainstorm blew over parasols in the seating area of exclusive F1s Paddock Club, while mini waves of water blew down the pit straight.The weather brought a halt to proceedings for a good 20 minutes before the Red Bull drivers headed out on track on the intermediate tyres. But the rain that fell on the first sector had mostly dried up and only the final sector was wet enough for the tyre choice. A combination of sunshine and track running meant the circuit was dry enough for slicks in the final 20 minutes as steam continued to rise from the track off the racing line.Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa finished just outside the top ten despite attempts on ultra-soft tyres at the end of the session. Like Toro Rosso teammate Sainz, Daniil Kvyat did not set a time on the ultra-softs but finished 13th overall ahead of Sergio Perezs Force India in 14th.

      LONGVIEW, Texas -- Stressed voters can swing at Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at a driving range in Texas where photos of the presidential candidates are displayed as targets for speeding golf balls.Alpine Target Golf Center in Longview has hung the portraits on round hay bales since late October. The photos show the Democrat and Republican candidates for the White House with mouths wide open, as if ready to catch a ball.Its hard to tell if golf balls count as votes for or against the candidates, but rancher Craig McAlpine says the balls amassed around Clintons hay bale indicate more people have teed off in her direction.Mike Williams, the owner of the center about 115 miles southeast of Dallas, says its just a touch of fun in this stressful election.

PITTSBURGH -- Adam Wainwright is still in search of his best stuff. His bat made sure his best wasnt necessary.The St. Louis ace drove in three runs and survived five occasionally bumpy innings to pick up his first victory since mid-July as the Cardinals drummed the staggering Pittsburgh Pirates 12-6 on Monday.Wainwright hit an RBI-double off Chad Kuhl (3-3) in the second and added a two-run single in the fourth as the Cardinals held on to the second wild card spot in the National League by sending the Pirates to their seventh straight loss.We needed that win, Wainwright said. We need every win that we can get coming down the stretch. Any part that I can play in that is a treat for me, a privilege.Wainwright (10-8) allowed four runs and struck out five as his ERA rose to 4.61 while picking up his first victory since July 16. He hardly needed to be sharp as the Cardinals battered Pittsburghs beleaguered pitching staff. Jedd Gyorko and Matt Adams homered for St. Louis to extend the teams streak of games with at least one home run to a club-record 24.Andrew McCutchen and Adam Frazier hit home runs for the Pirates, who have been outscored 47-22 during their current slide.

We just have to keep going.St. Louis pounded out 14 hits -- eight for extra bases -- against five pitchers and wasted little time getting to Kuhl, who has been steady if not spectacular since joining the rotation full-time a month ago.Wainwrights double to the wall in center field put the Cardinals in front and Stephen Piscottys two-run double later in the inning gave Wainwright an early cushion, one he flirted with giving away. Pittsburgh touched him for two runs in the bottom of the inning but Wainwright avoided major damage.I hate giving up runs after wwe score, Wainwright said.dddddddddddd Thats driving me crazy.

The first two (innings) were stressful. To me, weve got a lead that we think our bullpen can hold.

      WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Derrick Rose said Monday he isnt worried about a rape trial set to start next week because he feels he didnt do anything wrong.Rose said he is instead focused on his first season with the New York Knicks. His first practice with the team will be Tuesday.My concern is just playing well this year, Rose said. I cant think about the case. I feel like Im innocent and I feel like I didnt do anything wrong, like I said, and I cant let that distract me with the year that I have ahead of me.A woman sued Rose last year in California, contending the former MVP and two of his friends raped her in August 2013 while she was incapacitated after a night of drinking. Rose and the others say they had consensual sex with her that night.The civil trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 4 -- barring any settlement -- the day the Knicks play their exhibition opener in Houston. Its unclear how much, if any, of the preseason he would have to miss if there is a trial.Im not worried about it, but if I do have to miss time, its a part of it, Rose said. Of course I dont want to be in this position, but it is what it is and Im going to let my lawyers and my team handle it.Rose added that he hadnt heard anything about a possibility of criminal charges being brought.The Knicks acquired Rose from Chicago in June. The point guard said he is healthy after a series of injuries, mostly to his knees, that have plagued him since his MVP season in 2011.Because of the injuries, Rose hasnt played in more than 66 games a season since he first tore his ACL in the 2012 playoffs. Rehab has forced him to report early or stay late after practices and games for much of the last few years, which he said was tiresome.But he was able to focus on basketball this summer while adding yoga to his workout routine, and Knicks who have been playing with him say Roses quickness has returned.Hes extremely focused right now, All-Star Carmelo Anthony said, adding that hes never played with a point guard with Roses explosiveness. Hes healthy, he has a different mindset. He has a clear mind and hes ready to go out there and try to help us with our goals.Rose was the biggest addition to a Knicks team that also signed his former Bulls teammate, Joakim Noah, and veteran guards Courtney Lee and Brandon Jennings. If he remains healthy, Rose can get the Knicks playing at a quicker pace and create easier baskets under new coach Jeff Hornacek, after their offense often stalled while playing the triangle under Derek Fisher and Kurt Rambis the last two years.Lee said Rose, who once hit a game-winning shot over him while Lee played for Houston, has looked confident during offseason workouts.He kind of reminded me of that MVP D-Rose, especially in some of the drills that we were doing, Lee said. He was able to get to his spots quick, explosiveness and knock down shots.Rose averaged 16.4 points in 66 games last season, and most of the games he missed were unrelated to his knees. The Chicago native has been focused on learning a new city and team, traveling with a group of Knicks players to practice in Puerto Rico at Anthonys invitation.Having to miss time in October would delay his ability to get comfortable. A settlement would prevent that, but Rose didnt discuss that possibility, praising his legal team for taking care of the details.Theyre handling everything and theyre giving me time to focus on what I need to focus on and thats just straight basketball, Rose said.---Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Briancmahoney Darren Sharper Jersey .

NEW YORK GIANTS (6-10)OPEN CAMP: July 27, East Rutherford, New JerseyLAST YEAR: After missing playoffs for fourth straight year, Tom Coughlin and team agreed to part ways. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was promoted to head coach and Steve Spagnuolo kept as defensive coordinator. QB Eli Manning and WR Odell Beckham Jr. give offense big-strike capability, but they need help. Front office bought Spagnuolo a defense in offseason, re-signing Jason Pierre-Paul and adding end Olivier Vernon, DT Damon Harrison, linebacker Keenan Robinson and cornerback Janoris Jenkins through free agency.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: DE Vernon, DT Harrison, CB Jenkins, LB Robinson, CB Eli Apple and WR Sterling Shepard.IMPORTANT LOSSES: CB Prince Amukamara, WR Rueben Randle, DE Robert Ayers, DT Markus Kuhn, S Brandon Meriweather, G Geoff Schwartz, LB Jon Beason.CAMP NEEDS: LT Ereck Flowers and offensive lline need to establish running game to make offense consistent.dddddddddddd Find receiver to play opposite Beckham. Defense needs to mesh all those new pieces, get JPP closer to what he was before fireworks accident in 2015 and find someone to cover players coming out of backfield.EXPECTATIONS: If all that money spent on defense pays off, Giants might have bought way back into playoffs. Much is expected of Apple and Shepard, Giants top two draft picks. Apple is expected to be at least nickel cornerback and Shepard has potential to be another playmaker at wide receiver.

      Restriction on TV advertisements Lodha Committee recommendation: That all existing television and broadcasting contracts for Test and one-day internationals be reworked with new terms that allow for ad breaks only during drinks, lunch and tea intervals. The recommendations also stated that a large portion of the TV screen display the game and only a small portion display sponsors logos or other advertisements.The BCCIs objection: The board argued that reworking or modifying existing broadcasting contracts would result in serious financial difficulties and heavy financial loss for the BCCI. It also stated the games telecast was not hampered by commercial exploitation of the event.Courts response: The Supreme Court left it to the BCCI to examine the matter of the quality of broadcast keeping in mind the committees reservations about television coverage and the omnipresence of commercial advertising. The BCCI was asked to take a considered decision with regard to the Committees recommendations and study the possibility of modification in existing contracts.Bringing BCCI under the RTI, and legalising betting Lodha Committee recommendation: The committee recommended that because the Supreme Court had stated that the BCCI discharged public functions, it needed to be brought under the Right to Information Act, 2005, thus giving the general public the right to ask for information about the boards functioning and activities.Courts response: The Supreme Court said while that the public did have a right to know details about the BCCIs functioning, it was for the law commission to examine the issue of including the BCCI under the Right to Information Act and pass on its recommendation to the government; only then could the the government move to legislate and bring the board under the RTI Act. Similarly, the court said the recommendation to legalising betting could only be implemented by an enactment of a law, which comes under the purview of first the law commission and then the government.Funding a players association Lodha Committee recommendation: That an independent players association be established to give players a voice to raise their concerns and have them discussed with the BCCI. The committee recommended that the BCCI handle the expenses involved in the creation and functioning of the association. It also stated that two representatives of the association, one male and one female, be nominated to the Apex Council - the proposed body that would replace the Working Committee, the BCCIs highest decision-making body.The BCCIs objection: While the BCCI didnt challenge the formation of a players association, it asked why the board should extend financial support to it. The BCCI also opposed the recommendation to provide representation to players association members in the Apex Council, contending that some of the cricketers had in the past held offices in state associations and in the BCCI by recourse to the democratic process.Courts response: The Supreme Court held that it wasnt an unacceptable idea for the BCCI to financially assist the players association, but the extent of support was left to the boards discretion. However, the court said it did not see why the players representatives should not be on the Apex Council, given the players association would represent a very significant and important segment of the stakeholders in the game.
