Mond was 19 of 29 for 237 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

He also ran for a touchdown and lost a fumble.

“There’s no moral victory in this deal,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. “When you play that hard and you play that long nobody’s happy.”

Hurts threw for 123 yards and ran for 56.

“Are we happy? Are we pleased? No,” he said. “But we are happy that we can walk out of here with a win.”

Mond connected with Damion Ratley on a 32-yard pass on fourth-and-9 to get the Aggies to the 3 late in the third quarter. They were facing another fourth down later in the possession when Mond evaded one sack and got the ball off just as he was hit, finding Christian Kirk for a 2-yard touchdown pass to get the Aggies to 24-10. Kirk grabbed the ball just before his knee hit the ground.

When it mattered most, the poise of Kempt, a walk-on computer science major who was a high school valedictorian, came through.

Once Oklahoma scored to tie the game 31-31 with 7:18 to play, the Cyclones believed the ensuing drive would be their chance to win. After an unsportsmanlike penalty on Oklahoma helped ignite the drive, Kempt coolly hit Marchie Murdock for a first down into Sooners territory. After Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys four consecutive runs, the Cyclones faced third-and-7 from the Oklahoma 25 with just over two minutes left.

“We knew we were in field goal range,” Campbell said. “We didn’t Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Site want to take a sack. And yet we wanted to get Allen in the best matchup we could.”

Best GameDay signs: Trolling as easy as A-B-C

The stage is set in Fort Worth, Texas, for Lee Corso’s 300th headgear pick. The home team, TCU, is undefeated when Corso has donned the SuperFrog disguise. He’s also 2-0 when picking against the team visiting Fort Worth today: West Virginia. The last time Lee picked TCU was when the Horned Frogs won 31-30 at West Virginia in 2014. That was headgear pick No. 250. With that in mind, here are the best signs from the fans in attendance.

In 1988, Brooks gathered the Ducks for a pregame speech that he hoped would be the final bit of motivation needed to get the perennial also-ran program in gear toward a better future. As Brooks felt his best Knute Rockne words flow from his lips, something else started NHL Hockey Jerseys flowing into the room at the team’s feet. It was raw sewage coming back up through the toilets. Three Wholesale Jerseys seasons later, Oregon christened a new locker room for the home team.

So what happened to the bowels?

“That became the visitor’s locker room,” Belotti replied, without an ounce of regret.

Flipping facilities to send a message works both ways. Texas received a ton of offseason attention when its lavish home locker room at Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium was unveiled, with 43-inch flat screens over each locker. The Longhorns’ extreme makeover cost a reported $10 million, the 126 lockers running $8,700 each. However, when new head coach Tom Herman found himself unimpressed with the efforts of his team during preseason practice, he conjured up the most brutal of punishments.

He made his team use the visitor’s locker room.

Kareem Hunt is really good at football.

Only the stopwatch said he wasn’t a burner. Hunt ran a 4.62 in the 40-yard dash at the combine. More than a few scouts neglected the fact that he runs a 4.42 on game days.

“It’s not track,” Candle said. “It’s football.”

Both of his previous coaches described Hunt as a humble young man with a clear generosity of spirit. Reid added to that narrative after winning his fourth consecutive game, talking about his rookie “keeping a level head about him.” At his locker, Hunt spoke of team-centric goals and credited an offensive line that lost a starter, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, to an early knee injury. He also was effusive in his praise of his quarterback.

The Falcons lost both receivers Julio Jones (hip flexor) and Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) in the loss to the Bills.

The Vikings fear rookie running back Dalvin Cook tore the ACL in his Cheap Jerseys Sites left knee following a non-contact injury in a 14-7 loss to the Lions. Cook will have an MRI on Monday, but is done for the season.

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota left Sunday’s loss with a hamstring injury and will have an MRI on Monday.

Panthers safety Kurt Coleman sprained his knee against the Patriots and Cheap Jerseys Throwback will have an MRI on Monday.

FPI’s message to the ESPN Power Rankings panel is straight out of the Aaron Rodgers playbook: R-E-L-A-X.

Although there are plenty of teams the two systems agree on, when they differ, it is by and large because the voters are making much more aggressive moves off of this season’s action than FPI is comfortable with.

Allen intrigues me because of the volume of usage he received in a game that was being thoroughly handled by his team.

“You just enjoy the journey,” said Witten, who began his 15th season by breaking Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin’s club record of 11,904 yards. “I’m just trying to devour where I am at this moment. It’s a great time in my life.”

Elliott, last year’s NFL rushing leader, had a rugged 104 yards on the ground and another 36 receiving in a game that he knew he would get to play regardless of a federal judge’s ruling in his bid to have the NFL’s punishment overturned.

The Chiefs were already trailing 7-0, but escaped without any damage after a Tom Brady touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski was overturned after a replay review revealed the ball hit the ground. The Patriots were then stopped on fourth-and-1 and the Chiefs offense took over at its own 10-yard line.

The Patriots made it look easy on their opening drive, going 73 yards in nine plays for a drive that took just 2:52 and ended with Mike Gillislee’s 2-yard touchdown run. After the Hunt fumble, it appeared the Patriots would easily cover the nine-point spread as favorites. But the Chiefs would not go away.

After New England built a 17-7 lead, Hunt’s 3-yard touchdown reception from Alex Smith with 17 seconds remaining in the first half capped a 12-play, 92-yard drive and gave the Chiefs Cheap Hockey Team Jerseys some momentum Cheap Hockey Jerseys Custom heading into halftime.

Tarik Cohen and Kerwynn Williams also fit the bill of being available in more than 80 percent of ESPN.com leagues, but I don’t think either of them actually need to be recommended for you to consider them.

Adam Silver: Seattle on the ‘short list’ of NBA expansion cities

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in an interview with C.J. McCollum — yes, that C.J. McCollum — that he’s considering the idea of an expansion at some point in the near future. And on the list of cities being highlighted as potential homes to NBA franchises, Seattle is near the top.

“I think it’s just a question of when the right time is to seriously start thinking about expansion,” Silver said in an interview on The Player’s Tribune. “Think about the state we’re in the league right now where [it is] amazing to me that, coming off of these Finals, you have some fans saying, ‘There’s only one good team in the league.’

Jones will work in tandem with McDonough, who helped position the Suns for a promising future with a young core of Devin Booker, Josh Jackson, Marquese Chriss, and Dragan Bender. The Suns Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal also have experienced, quality trade assets that do not fit their timeline in Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight.

Jones will look to help steer Phoenix to its first playoff Cheap New Zealand Warriors Jerseys appearance this decade, or since the Steve Nash era. His reputation around the league also projects to help the Suns in free agency moving forward.

It would have been only fitting for him to watch two of the best AAU has to offer square up on a basketball court.

Ball scored 31 points, shining through a night of questionable shot selection, including multiple failed shot attempts from near the halfcourt line. Williamson scored 28 points, darting out in transition to finish in coast-to-coast manner time and time again. In the end, Williamson’s SC Supreme AAU squad took down Big Baller Brand, 104-92, his head coach calling the shots from the sidelines with a cold-cocked toddler fast asleep in his arms.

Orioles invited Luke Terry, a 14-year-old catcher with one arm, for a very cool first pitch

Last month, the internet was tittering about 14-year-old Luke Terry because of this video:

And because only good things happen when the internet finds something, the Orioles invited Terry to Camden Yards to hang out with some players before the game and catch the first pitch from Hall of Famer Jim Palmer.

The idea came from Orioles bench coach John Russell, who saw Terry’s video floating around the internet and got him in. Kudos to Russell for the idea, and Kudos to Terry, who remains a complete and total badass.

Miguel Sano was tempting, and he originally had the spot, but I realized that I was in the grips of Prospect Bias, in which a player’s Baseball America ranking is faintly visible above his head at all times, like a halo. Sano was the blue-chipper, and Ramirez had an unremarkable minor-league career and a slow start in the majors. So my natural inclination is to err toward Sano.

But we’re almost 1,000 plate appearances into the idea that Ramirez is special, and he’s clearly having the best statistical year. So I’ll buy into the idea that his ample tools and big numbers make him the most exciting third baseman in the league for now.

These are the three leaders in WAR according to Baseball-Reference, and they’re Jerseys Wholesale the three outfielders I want to watch more than any other, so this works out. Please Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal do not use midseason WAR to make any decisions yourself. I’m a trained professional.

The Browns’ scheme and supporting cast is built better for a mobile passer than it is for a big statue.

EA Sports recently released the first gameplay trailer for “Madden NFL 18,” which includes a quick look at new features like Target Passing, Play Styles, and WR/DB Interactions.

“Madden NFL 18” also introduces the series’ first ever story mode, featuring actors that include Mahershala Ali and Scott Porter, plus appearances from licensed colleges Texas and Oregon.

The game will release August 22 for those who buy the $80 “G.O.A.T” edition; August 25 for the standard edition. Those with an EA Access subscription on Xbox One will be able to start playing a 10-hour trial of the game August 17.

The Browns’ scheme and supporting cast is built better for a mobile passer than it is for a big statue. Osweiler also has struggled with standing too long in the pocket and not getting the ball out quickly, which doesn’t mesh with Jackson’s QB requirements.

Osweiler is pretty much there to push the youngsters in presence only. He’s more down with Kevin Hogan, who’s in this competition in name only. This is Kessler vs. Kizer, and the second-year man from USC can officially start to worry about the trajectory of the competition.

Kessler has shown only limited improvement in arm strength, still his biggest weaknesses. He can handle dinking, dunking and checking down, and he can remain efficient with his shorter throws, the way former Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn did. But the Browns need to make use of youthful field-stretchers Corey Coleman and David Njoku, and Kessler is deficient in pushing the ball downfield. Further hurting Super Cheap Jerseys Fans Kessler vs. both the 6-4 Kizer and Osweiler is his lack of ideal size, something he can’t UK Cheap Jerseys change.

Colin Kaepernick to end national anthem protest, report says

Colin Kaepernick will abandon his controversial national anthem protest next season, ESPN reported Thursday, citing unidentified sources.

Kaepernick, who will opt out of his contract with the 49ers, believes his message about social inequality has been acknowledged, the sources told ESPN, adding that continuing to kneel during the national Cheap Quality NFL Jerseys anthem could detract from the positive change that he believes has been created.

He has played the past three seasons with the Broncos, during which time he has been hampered by back problems but also won a ring in Super Bowl 50.

According to the Star-Telegram, Ware’s health, durability and age leave questions about whether he would fit in coordinator Rod Marinelli’s defense that doesn’t typically “make allowances for specialists,” although the Cowboys certainly could use a difference-making pass-rusher. Dallas had 36 sacks in 2016, 13th in the NFL.

He had 11 1/2 sacks over the past two seasons in Denver, including four as a part-time player in 2016. A ruptured disc forced him to miss six games last season, which he ended on injured reserve.

Ware says he is healthy now after undergoing back surgery and believes he is ready to Cheap Quality Soccer Jerseys finish his career with a flourish, the Star-Telegram’s source said.

NFL free agency: Kalil brothers expected to reunite in Carolina

The Carolina Panthers are expected to sign Matt Kalil as their starting left tackle, ESPN reports. The former Minnesota Viking would be joining his brother, center Ryan Kalil, on the Panthers offensive line.

The contract is a five-year deal worth $55 million and $25 million guaranteed, according to USA Today.

Carolina’s need for a new left tackle to help protect star quarterback Cam Newton was clear — Michael Oher started in the position in Week 1 last season but has been in concussion protocol since Week 3. Once he’s cleared, Oher may be slotted at right tackle.

The series, from executive producer Michael Strahan, “pairs ex-athletes in serious financial distress with money-savvy mentors who can help them get back on their feet,” says a news release, tweeted by Politico’s Alex Weprin.

“It’s a story we hear all too often,” the release says. “A pro athlete heads into retirement, only to find themselves in financial free-fall. With no more games to play or paychecks to cash, the future can often look bleak to those athletes struggling to adjust and adapt. But help may be on the way.”

Say what you will about Rodriguez, but he’s had no trouble Cheap Mitchell And Ness Jerseys adjusting and adapting in retirement — because the paychecks keep coming.

After spending most of his adult life in front of cameras as an All-Star player and media target, the photogenic Rodriguez, 41, has shown no apparent desire to flee them in retirement. “Back in the Game” comes on the heels of Rodriguez’s widely praised run as an analyst during Fox’s coverage of the 2016 MLB postseason.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is taking the NBA to new heights

Giannis Antetokounmpo brought the NBA Jam video game to life in the 2016-17 season and leaped and dunked his way into the everyday talks of the league’s biggest and brightest in ways nobody saw coming.

Nothing about him makes sense, and flashes of his athleticism evoked external screams even when the play didn’t end in a score. The second he put his head down toward the rim, it was time to run to Twitter for the highlights. Even in blowouts, he made it tough to turn the television off.

He’s one of the league’s best scorers. But he’s also Detroit Lions Cheap Jerseys human. He’s a father, a son, a husband, and a brother. During this unfortunate stretch in his life, Thomas has somehow managed to balance it all.

At a time when many would have crumbled, Thomas has excelled. Boston’s rattled off five straight victories and has started its second-round series with a convincing win over a tough Wizards opponent.

The 5’9 guard destroyed the Washington Wizards on Sunday, scoring 33 points on 11-of-23 shooting to lead Boston to a 123-111 Game 1 win of its second-round playoff series. He shot 5-of-11 from downtown, snapping an abysmal first-round stretch of 3-of-26 three-point shooting.

Thomas did it under surreal circumstances, having lost his younger sister in a car accident just a day before the playoffs began and attending her funeral the day before the second round. The All-Star guard even lost his front tooth for good measure.

“Basketball, when I’m on the court it just keeps me going,” Thomas said in his postgame interview with Doris Burke. “I do everything for my sister now, and that’s all I can do.”
