(STATS) -- As the middle of the FCS regular season arrives, a whopping seven teams that were nationally ranked in the preseason are floundering under losing records.Brad Kaaya Womens Jersey .Its now, but probably never for most of them as far as gaining an FCS playoff bid.The most promising situation belongs to Northern Iowa (2-3, 1-1 Missouri Valley), which was ranked fifth in the preseason. The problem for the talented Panthers is it that four of their remaining six conference opponents are ranked in the Top 15 (Youngstown State, North Dakota State, Western Illinois and South Dakota State).But UNI played such a tough non-conference schedule and had a win over an FBS opponent (Iowa State) that even a 6-5 record may land it an at-large bid -- like Western Illinois last year.An at-large bid is unlikely for defending Patriot League champion and preseason No. 21 Colgate (1-4, 0-1), which is reeling with a three-game losing streak. It needs help to gain the leagues automatic bid again, the best bet in a seven-team league likely being a tie for the league title. But it cant be a two-way share with Lehigh, which won the head-to-head matchup.At this point, a winning record is probably the best scenario for William & Mary (2-4, 0-3 CAA), which was No. 9 in the preseason; Illinois State (2-4, 0-3 Missouri Valley), No. 10; Portland State (2-4, 1-2 Big Sky), No. 17; Northern Arizona (2-4, 1-2 Big Sky), No. 18; and Towson (1-4, 0-3 CAA), No. 24.High expectations bring a lot of pressure to teams. Sometimes too much.SECOND AND 10=Ten more observations from the FCS weekend:1.) The team of the week could probably be South Dakota for its 28-25 win over Northern Iowa in the Missouri Valley Conference, but lets go with Southeastern Louisiana, the 2013 and 14 Southland Conference champ, which beat last years champ McNeese 31-24. Incredibly, the Lions won the game with an 82-yard touchdown pass with eight seconds remaining. With the score tied 24-24 and the ball deep in its territory, it looked like Southeastern was ready to run out the clock and go into overtime. But Justin Alo threw a second-down pass along the sideline that just got by leaping McNeese cornerback Jermaine Antoine, who put his hands on the ball before it fell into Brandon Ackers hands in stride as he raced away.2.) Midway through the regular season, there may be some coaches facing the hot seat if their teams dont pick up their play, including Bruce Fowler of Furman (0-6), Dave Brock of Delaware (2-3), Frank Tavani of Lafayette (1-5), Ron Gould of UC Davis (1-5) and Harold Nichols of Presbyterian (1-4).3.) The better offenses in the FCS have to include Lehigh (4-2), which has averaged a shade under 50 points during its four-game winning streak, including a 45-31 dispatching of fading Patriot League champ Colgate. Quarterback Nick Shafnisky has his choices in power running back Dom Bragalone and seemingly unstoppable wide receivers Troy Pelletier and Gatlin Casey, who have both gone over 100 yards in three straight games. Last years senior class was the first to leave Lehigh without a league title in more than 20 years. This years senior class seeks a different end.4.) While Montana has risen to a higher level under second-year coach Bob Stitt, the story isnt as promising at Montana State, where first-year coach Jeff Choate is trying to prevent the Bobcats second straight losing season. They are 2-4 overall and 0-3 in the Big Sky following a 20-14 home loss to Northern Arizona. The loss of quarterback Dakota Prukop to a graduate transfer set the Bobcats back tremendously. If there is a positive, the defense has improved under coordinator Ty Gregorak, who joined Choates staff from Montana. The Bobcats rank first in the Big Sky Conference in scoring defense (20.4 ppg) and second in total defense (370.6 ypg) after ranking eight and 10th, respectively, a year ago.5.) Much of the focus in the MEAC centers on North Carolina A&T and star tailback Tarik Cohen, but North Carolina Central (4-2, 3-0) sits alone in first place, a half-game ahead of A&T and Morgan State. The Eagles, who have won a share of the title each of the past two seasons under coach Jerry Mack, beat Florida A&M 17-13 for their 11th straight win over a non-FBS opponent. The Eagles had an impressive 14 tackles for loss, including Reggie Hunter with 3 1/2. Their big game with rival A&T is at home on Nov. 19.6.) With Albany, Cornell and Tennessee State losing, there are only five remaining unbeaten teams, and all are nationally ranked: Chattanooga (6-0), The Citadel (5-0), Sam Houston State (5-0), North Dakota State (5-0) and Harvard (4-0). Conversely, there are six winless teams: Abilene Christian (0-6), Furman (0-6), Mississippi Valley State (0-6), Austin Peay (0-5), Delaware State (0-5) and Bethune-Cookman (0-4).7.) After allowing 20 rushing touchdowns last season, Youngstown State has yet to surrender one this season in its 4-1 start, including Saturdays 20-6 defensive gem at Illinois State. Opponents are averaging under three yards per carry. Its a huge improvement for the Penguins, who have melted in November in recent years as theyve tried to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2006.8.) The ability to convert third downs is huge. Among the top 20 in third down conversion percentage, every team has a winning record except for UT Martin, which is .500 (3-3) with two of the losses against FBS opponents. The Ohio Valley Conference squad is one of six teams clicking over 50 percent, a group led by Harvard (58.2 percent) and including James Madison, Eastern Washington, San Diego and Lehigh.9.) One midseason ballot for national offensive player of the year: 1. Eastern Washington quarterback Gage Gubrud; 2. Fordham running back Chase Edmonds; 3. South Dakota State quarterback Taryn Christion; 4. Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp; and 5 (tie). James Madison running back Khalid Abdullah and Sam Houston State quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe.10.) One midseason ballot for national offensive player of the year: 1. Northern Iowa defensive end Karter Schult; 2. Saint Francis safety Lorenzo Jerome; 3. Villanova defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon; 4. Sam Houston State defensive end P.J. Hall; and 5 (tie).

Matchups from the Top 25 include Chattanooga at The Citadel, the top Southern Conference teams and defending co-champs; South Dakota State at top-ranked North Dakota State and Northern Iowa at Youngstown State in the Missouri Valley; Villanova at Richmond in CAA Football; and Central Arkansas at McNeese in the Southland.Also: Big Sky, Southern Utah at North Dakota and Cal Poly at Portland State; CAA, Albany at Maine and James Madison at New Hampshire (which may become a Top 25 game in this weeks STATS poll); Ivy, Columbia at Penn (Lions coach Al Bagnoli makes a return to Penn); and MEAC, North Carolina A&T at Bethune-Cookman (Thursday night).Other key matchups: Northeast, Bryant at Saint Francis; Ohio Valley, Eastern Kentucky at Tennessee State; Pioneer, San Diego at Drake; and SWAC, Southern at Jackson State. Jalen Reeves-Maybin Youth Jersey .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013.

After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. Oscar Valdez is one of boxings top rising stars. He won a vacant featherweight world title, and accomplished what most expected of the two-time Mexican Olympian, when he knocked out Matias Adrian Rueda in the second round on July 23.Certainly, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, who signed Valdez after the 2012 Olympics, expected him to win a world title. But as far as Arum is concerned, it was only the beginning of what he envisions will become a great career.Arum has promoted a whos who of superstars during his 50 years in the boxing business, including many prominent Mexican fighters, and he has helped build them into attractions and champions. He views Valdez -- an enormously talented fighter with a fan-friendly style, outgoing personality and bilingual skills -- as the next one.Were going to make him a huge star in Mexico and in the border cities in the United States, like Tucson, where he grew up, Phoenix and San Diego. We think theres a big, big upside for him, Arum said.With the 126-pound world title in hand, Valdez will make his first defense against mandatory challenger Hiroshige Osawa in one of four world title fights on Nov. 5 (Top Rank PPV, 9 p.m. ET) on the Manny Pacquiao-Jessie Vargas card at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.Being given a spot on Pacquiaos undercard is a big deal for any young fighter, and the 25-year-old Valdez knows it.It means a lot to me, Valdez said. I get excited when I fight on these big cards. Im very grateful to Bob Arum for putting me on a big show like this. Ive always heard the first title defense is the hardest. Ive heard this from ex-champions like Julio Cesar Chavez [Sr.]. The hard thing is not getting there and winning a title. The hard thing is maintaining your championship. I am motivated, but its even more motivation for me being on great cards like this.I grew up seeing Pacquiao fight. He was in so many great fights. And now I am on his card and I got something to show my people -- that Im on this big card. Everybody gets excited back home. Its nothing but motivation for me.Valdez (20-0, 18 KOs) does not know much about Osawa (30-3-4, 19 KOs) of Japan, who will be facing the first notable opponent of his career. Valdez, however, said that when he knew he would be facing Osawa, 31, he went to YouTube and watched some video of him.I didnt really know much about him so I started looking at him to see what kind of fighter he is, Valdez said. He has a longer reach than me so we are sparring guys taller than me. He comes forward, doesnt go back, and he tries to knock out his opponent. But one thing I know about Japanese fighters is they have heart. Im not trying to think Im knocking this guy out in the first or second round. I will try not to be overconfident. Being smart is important.Arum has huge hopes for Valdez.We think we can make him a bigger star than [Erik] Morales or [Marco Antonio] Barrera, Arum said of the Mexican stars who waged an epic trilogy and had some of their greatest fights at featherrweight. Kenny Golladay Lions Jersey. Our goal is to make him like a successor to Morales and Barrera. We think he has the ability and personality, and he will have somewhat bigger crossover appeal because of the fact that he is fluent in English, where the other two werent.One of the most successful promotional jobs of Arums career in terms of a Mexican fighter was with Morales. Arum was involved in a few Barrera fights over the years, but he promoted Morales for most of his career, including all three fights with Barrera, and helped build Morales into one of the top fighters in boxing. Morales headlined several successful pay-per-view cards, won world titles in four weight divisions, and became a fan favorite. He will be eligible to appear on the International Boxing Hall of Fame ballot for the first time next fall and is a shoe-in to be elected.Arum wants to follow a similar path with Valdez, who was born in Mexico and spent most of his childhood living in Tucson, Arizona, which he considers a second home and where his mother still lives, before moving back to his familys hometown of Nogales, just over the border, where his father, grandmother and other family members live.Arum said he has talked with Tucson city officials and officials from Casino Del Sol, which is in Tucson and has hosted a number of boxing events, about hosting future Valdez fights at the casino and the citys convention center.We also hope to have Oscar fight in Mexico City and hope to have him fight in Tijuana [Morales hometown], Arum said. We know what we are doing. If hes as good as we think, he can fight three or four times a year, and we can build a business around this kid.Its all music to Valdezs ears. When told that Arum wants to handle the young fighters career as he handled Morales, Valdez was in awe, sounding somewhat stunned to hear it. The reason: Morales is Valdezs boxing idol.In fact, the first time Valdez went to Las Vegas to see a fight was as a 13-year-old in 2004. He went to see Morales unify junior lightweight titles in a decision win against Carlos Hernandez at the MGM Grand. In 2008, Valdez, then a top amateur, got a chance to meet Morales at a tournament and tell him that he was his favorite fighter.Now, all these years later, Valdez relishes that Arum is comparing them.My idol has always been Erik Morales, Valdez said. By doing half of what he did would mean a lot of to me. Its an honor that Bob would say a thing like that. He has been in this game for so long and knows his boxing, so it means I am doing something right. Ill do my part and work hard in the gym. I love boxing. And I know Bob Arum and Top Rank will do their job. One thing they know is that I want to be considered one of the best.I want to be known when they mention the great Mexican fighters. I want to be on that list with Chavez, Morales, Barrera and [Juan Manuel] Marquez. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

CHICAGO -- Nearly 13 years after he was traded away, Joe Nathan is back with the Giants. Cheap Hawks Jerseys .San Francisco promoted the 41-year-old right-hander from Double-A Richmond before Saturdays game against the Chicago Cubs.I want to prove to myself that I can still do it, said Nathan, who signed a minor league deal Aug. 19.Nathan was a sixth-round pick of the Giants in 1995 and began his career as a starter before moving to the bullpen. But after struggling in the 2003 playoffs, Nathan was dealt along with left-hander Francisco Liriano to Minnesota for catcher A.J. Pierzynski.It turned out to a one-sided deal, as Nathan became one of the top closers in the game with 377 saves and six All-Star selections with Minnesota, Texas and Detroit. But he has appeared in only four major league games the past two seasons after a second Tommy John surgery.Ultimate motivation is to win a ring and from there it was kind of nice to prove some people wrong, Nathan said. Once I had the injury, I dont think it was 5 minutes after we found out I was going to have surgery that people were already saying, `So youre retiring, right?Nathan picked jersey No. 74, having been born in 1974.Manager Bruce Bochy says the playoff contenders plan to use Nathan in the sixth and seventh innings.Whats impressive is what hes accomplished, but he still has such passion for the game that here he is pitching at Double-A, Bochy said. And now here he is, back with the Giants.Nathan appeared in three games with the Cubs earlier this season, but was then released Aug. 6 amid a roster crunch.He had one really good game up in Milwaukee (on July 24) where we got a couple guys on and he struck out the side, Chicago manager Joe Maddon said. His pitches got up to the low 90s (mph) with some really good break. It was just a lack of opportunity with us. . Im really happy that hes there.The Giants opened a spot on the 40-man roster for Nathan by recalling right-hander Ray Black from Double-A Richmond and putting him on the 60-day disabled list. Cheap Hawks Jerseys Authentic . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead.Cheap Swingman Hawks Jerseys . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida defensive coordinator Geoff Collins has a chance to join elite company in college football this season.Collins was given a $300,000 raise this year and has a chance to make $1 million annually.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Custom Chelsea Jersey UK . -- It hasnt exactly been the kind of week-in-a-bubble Alabama coach Nick Saban would want before a Southeastern Conference game.The top-ranked Crimson Tide has dealt with injury questions, a star players arrest and backup quarterback Blake Barnett leaving the team leading up to Saturday nights game with Kentucky.Alabama (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) remained a heavy favorite over the Wildcats (2-2, 1-1), who have won two straight since a rough start but lost on all nine previous trips to Bryant-Denny Stadium.Leading rusher Damien Harris, a Kentucky native who was heavily recruited by the Wildcats, has been nursing a sprained right ankle while receivers ArDarius Stewart and Robert Foster sat out the Kent State game with knee injuries.Coach Nick Saban announced Thursday that Barnett had left the program and withdrawn from school. That followed linebacker Tim Williams early Thursday morning arrest on a misdemeanor charge of carrying a pistol without a permit.Saban said afterward that he would review the information before settling on any punishment.The test coming off what he called Alabamas most complete performance -- a 48-0 win over Kent State -- is to not let the off-the-field issues affect the performance.We played with a little better consistency throughout and well certainly need it against an SEC opponent that has really played well the last two weeks, Saban said. It will be very challenging for us.Kentucky has presumably built confidence with wins over New Mexico State and South Carolina. The Wildcats havent beaten a ranked SEC team on the road since a 39-36 victory over No. 21 LSU in 1998.This will be a huge test for a team with only 11 seniors on the roster, the fewest in the nation.Im confident well continue to push forward, Wildcats coach Mark Stoops said. I think our players are growing and it is what it is as far as our experience and what we have, especially defensively. They learn every time they take the field and every time we practice and well continue to do that.Here are some things to watch in the Kentucky-Alabama game:INJURY REPORT: Saban said Harris and Foster had both practiced by mid-week and Stewart had done some running.I cant really tell you who could or who couldnt play, Saban said after Wednesdays practice. I think these will all be sort of right-before-the-game decisions relative to whether these guys will be ready to go or not.WILLIAMS STATUS: If Williams is held out for all or part of the game, it leaves the Tide without one of the teams top pass rushers. He had 10.5 sacks last season off the bench and 1.5 through four games.WHOS NO. 2? Without Barnett, who started the opener against Southern California, either David Cornwell or Cooper Bateman is left to be `Bamas No. 2 quarterback. Bateman started the game against Mississippi last season while Cornwell hasnt played.JORDAN RULES: Sophomore linebacker Jordan Jones has been the constant on a Kentucky defense that had allowed 500 yards in each of its first three games before holding South Carolina to 268 in last weeks victory. Jones leads the SEC in tackles per game at 10.8 and his 43 stops rank ninth nationally. His tackle total through four games is the most since Danny Trevathan had 46 in 2011.BOOM AND BENNY SHOW: Kentuckys backfield tandem of junior Stanley Boom Williams and freshman Benny Snell Jr. try to continue their strong play against the SECs top run defense. Theyve combined for 513 yards rushing and six TDs the past two games. Williams ranks third in the conference at 116.0 yards per contest. Snell is tied for the SEC lead in rushing TDs with five, the most by a freshman through four games in school history.---AP Sports Writer Gary B.

Are Football Federation Australias two major concessions to Melbourne City enough to get out the mega-rich A-League clubs chequebook to sign Tim Cahill?The introduction of a new guest player role has been tailor made for the veteran Socceroo, and FFA chief executive David Gallop admitted as much on Wednesday. Dorian Johnson Cardinas Jersey .Im not calling it the Tim Cahill rule but I can understand if others might, he said.Cahill, 36, has been the most marketable Socceroo - and perhaps Australian sportsman full stop - for the best part of a decade.Since he left English Premier League club Everton four years ago, it has been a bone of contention that he chose to continue his career in the US and China over the A-League.Recognising this transfer window may be their last shot to see Cahill play in the league, FFA is pulling out all the stops.We all know there are discussions going on with Tim Cahill, he said.Were looking at a range of measures to make it attractive to him.The rules are now in place to accommodate that and its something were very keen to see.People love seeing big stars and certainly Tim would be a huge star in the A-League.Gallop praised the other nine A-League clubs for allowing the rule change, saying it showed maturity and an understanding everyone would benefit from the move.City, which began pre-season training this week, have declined to comment on their interest in Cahill.Along with the guest player concession approved this week, FFA have also allowed Melbourne City to rebrand their playing strips to match the blue of parent club Manchester City.A differentiation has been made between Sydney FCs Sky Blue and Citys City Blue, which has been mocked heartily on social media.The difference might not show up on a colour swab, but Gallop explained it was about branding.City have made it clear that Sky Blue is not an expression that theyre interested in. City Blue is, he said.Its a smart move for the A-League ... the global identity of Manchester City perhaps wasnt being fully utilised.Gallop also said he expected to appoint a new A-League chief to replace departed executive Damien de Bohun shortly.Were deep into the process and weve got a small number of people still in the running, he said. T.

HONG KONG -- Australias Sam Brazel birdied the 18th hole to narrowly edge Rafa Cabrera Bello to capture the Hong Kong Open on Sunday, his first title on the European Tour.Ranked 480th in the world, Brazel plays on the Asian Tour and had never had a top-10 European Tour finish before. The win gives him automatic entry into European Tour events for the next two years.Id love to come over to Europe. It would be a great privilege, an emotional Brazel said. It feels amazing. Im speechless. What a win. I feel very privileged to be playing here first of all and then ecstatic to win. As far as where this takes me obviously, I might be playing a few more events in Europe next year and well see where that takes me.Brazel and Cabrera Bello started the round level at 11 under, but the Australian sank three consecutive birdies on the back nine to take the lead, and then made his birdie putt on the final hole to nudge the Spaniard for the title.Rafa is a great fellow to play with. Plays very nicely. Got a great golf game I think he got unlucky a couple of times. I didnt rreally feel like it was a battle between the two of us. Taylor Moton Panthers Jersey. I was just trying to have fun, I was trying to enjoy moment and enjoy the experience of it all, Bazel said of his playing partner.Brazel shot a 68 for an overall total of 13-under 267, while Cabrera Bello, who had a double bogey on the par-3 8th hole, shot a 69 and finished a stroke back.Its just a little disappointing today. I managed to start good again but then struggle half way through the front nine. Battled back really hard again, same as yesterday but then Sam just played a fantastic 18th hole, said Cabrera Bello.Andrew Dodt of Australia shot a final-round 66 to tie for third with Tommy Fleetwood of England (68), two shots off the leader.David Lipsky of the United States carded a 68 to finish in fourth place at 10 under for the tournament.Defending champion and Rio Olympic Golf medalist Justin Rose tied for 36th spot with a final round 69 for a 278 overall. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

CLEVELAND -- LeBron James moved up the basketball ranks again Friday, passing Elvin Hayes for ninth on the all-time scoring list, but it was the play of Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving that he had something to say about. Gump Worsley Stars Jersey .Theyve been playing probably the best basketball of their careers thus far, James said after the Cleveland Cavaliers 114-84 win over the Miami Heat.Love posted 28 points and 15 rebounds against the Heat, upping his season averages to 21.7 points on 45.6 percent shooting (41.9 percent from 3) and 10.5 rebounds. All of those numbers are up from his previous two seasons with Cleveland.Hes the Kevin Love of old, and this is everything we expected out of him, James said. Thats what we want out of him. But theres no added pressure for him. Hes going out and just playing his game right now. Hes shooting the ball extremely well. Hes rebounding at a high clip, and hes at a point where hes just comfortable with everything, and its great to have him.In his last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Love averaged 26.1 points on 45.7 percent shooting (37.6 percent from 3) and 12.5 rebounds, but that Wolves team finished just 40-42. The Cavs are 16-5 after Fridays win, giving them the third-best record in the NBA.I think just the difference is that were winning, Love said when told of James compliment. I think Ive played a very high level of basketball before. I dont know if better than right now, but I know Ive played at a very, very high level -- even at points through the last two years. Its not like I forgot how to play. I just think I just feel comfortable with this team. (Coach) Ty Lue has me in a lot of great spots, and Im just playing with a lot of confidence. But the difference is, back 4-5 years ago, we werent finishing out games, making it to the playoffs, that sort of thing. So I think the fact that were winning games, and Ky is playing at such a high level, Bron is playing at such a high level, that its making everybody -- all 15 of these guys and the coaching staff -- look good.Irving had 23 points and three assists against the Heat, slightly lower than his season averages of 24.6 points and 4.8 assists coming into the night. His scoring average and efficiency (48.7 percent from the floor and 42.4 percent from 3) are career highs.I just think every year you get more and more comfortable with the system, James said. You get more and more comfortable with the play, and we all get more and more comfortable with our role. And it all started from the beginning with Kyrie and Kev just feeling like they wanted to be much better, they wanted to bring a little bit more to the team. Not just scoring, but more just leadership. And theyve both done that.Irving said James assessment was obvious.I mean, it kind of goes without saying, Irving said. Coming off a year like we had last year ... it was a load for our confidence. Coming into this season, we knew what to expect. The trust factor is there. There are really no more questions in terms of what level we have to play at in order to be great every single night. We dont have the kind of the miscues and the unknowns. The questions are answered, and were just straight up with one another, earnest all the time, and if theres a problem we fix it right away. Its a tell-tale sign of a maturing, great basketball team.A tell-tale sign of James individual greatness was the fast-break layup he scored with 6:57 remaining in the fourth quarter, giving him 27 points for the game and 27,315 for his career to move past Hayes.Among the scorers in the top 10 list, Hayes is perhaps the least heralded, despite being a 12-time All-Star over 16 seasons that included a championship in Washington. While others such as James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant are known to basketball fans by a first-name basis, Hayes has faded into relative obscurity since retiring in 1984.I dont know much, man, Irving said when asked about Hayes. I know he scored a lot of points, though. I mean, 27,000, thats still 27,000. Thats a lot of points.James, now 95 points away from passing Moses Malone for No. 8 on the all-time scoring list, said he is honored by the company hes keeping.I read up on him, James said of Hayes. I know the history of the game. Obviously, I havent gotten an opportunity to see him much. But I know how dominant he was in his era when he played the game. So anytime Im mentioned with any of the greats, and hes one of them, its very surreal and very humbling. Johnny Oduya Jersey .

Renault is confident it knows how to increase the power output of its V6 turbo engine as it aims to close the gap to rivals Ferrari and Mercedes.Since the introduction of the current engine regulations in 2014, Renault has lagged behind class-leaders Mercedes and has only shown real signs of catching up this year. A combustion upgrade at the Monaco Grand Prix saw the French manufacturer make a big step forward, but it is the consistent reliability of the power unit that engine technical director Remi Taffin says will lead to further steps in performance.Silverstone was the fourth race where we have used the new units [on both cars] and everything has worked well, he said. We have now got to the point where we are working on the smaller issues to improve the wider picture and give extra performance through driveability or additional power.Having a reliable annd generally driveable PU was one of our major targets this year and now that has been achieved we can work on the bigger picture, together with Enstone. Antti Niemi Stars Jersey. Were learning as a team all the time about operating the car and every lesson learnt helps for the future.While the works team continues to struggle for points, Taffin says Red Bulls success using TAG Heuer-branded Renault engines is proof of the step forward on the engine side.Its obviously encouraging to see that the power unit is now capable of fighting on track at the front and going for pole positions. It shows the work we have done has paid off but we know we still need to increase the power output and this is where our focus lies as we know how to achieve that. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

An under-strength Melbourne City have paid the price for their FFA Cup exertions, struggling to a 1-1 A-League draw in a fiery match with Brisbane. Chris Paul White Jersey .The Roar brought discipline and verve to Saturday nights contest and were good value for their lead when Jamie Maclaren netted on 38 minutes.A brain fade from Jade North allowed Nicolas Colazo to equalise early in the second half, setting in train a hectic finish to the match.The pre-game war of words between coaches John van t Schip and John Aloisi always threatened to boil over into the match, and it did on 54 minutes.As City hunted an equaliser, North was guilty of over-reacting to a spat with Bruno Fornaroli, falling to the ground clutching his head.Replays showed North dived, with the Uruguayan making minimal contact and nowhere near his face.City played on and hurt Brisbane when Colazo netted the equaliser by running onto Nick Fitzgeralds neat backheel.Such was the emotion on display that goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis was booked for excessive celebrations in front of the Roar bench.In an intense contest, referee Shaun Evans lost his bearings, with several head-scratching decisions or non-decisions that had City enraged.In the argy-bargy, there was no third goal, meaning Brisbane recorded a fourth-successive 1-1 draw.The Roar were unlucky not to beat City for the second time this season.Maclaren enjoyed silver service all night and, with a more lethal touch, would have been a hat-trick hero.The Socceroo missed chances on his left foot and head before finally finishing with his preferred right.Manny Muscat might be credited with the assist, as he cushioned Thomas Broichs cross into the path of Maclaren and allowed the striker to slot home at the near post.After Citys equaliser, Maclaren and teammates Tommy Oar and the lively Dimitri Petratos could also have found the net.City edged the shot count 17-16 but - forced into six changes from their FFA Cup final success just 72 hours earlier - were a shade short of their usual selves, failing to generate genuine chances.Van t Schip chose to assess the whole week in context - including an A-League win over Wellington as well as their trophy success in the past seven days - rather than just Saturday nights match.Im happy with the whole week ... at the beginning of the week if you had have said this would be the result, we would have taken it, he said.After a week like this we knew there was a lot of tension around this game.I have to give all the credit to the boys.Aloisi said he would talk to North about the incident, but his main frustration was missing the chance to win.Was it hard enough for him to go down, I dont think so, he said.Im most disappointed that we didnt get the three points. I thought we had enough chances.The result ended a run of six straight home wins for City over Brisbane and lengthens the Roars own unbeaten streak this campaign to seven matches. Chris Paul Authentic Jersey . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. Chris Paul Red Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No.http://www.authenticrocketsproshop.com/Chris-Paul-Jersey/ . But when it comes to determining if Raymond will find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well, that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. BARCELONA, Spain -- After missing out on the European Championship, forwards Victor Vitolo Machin and Andrea Belotti helped Spain and Italy move one step closer to World Cup qualification by leading their teams comfortable wins on Saturday.Vitolo was Spains most incisive player and put its 4-0 victory over Macedonia beyond doubt, while Belotti scored twice in Italys 4-0 victory at Liechtenstein.Spain and Italy have 10 points in Europes Group G, with the Spaniards ahead on goal difference. Macedonia and Liechtenstein have zero points.Israel moved into third place with nine points after winning 3-0 at 10-man Albania, which was left with six.SPAIN 4, MACEDONIA 0Spain coach Julen Lopetegui, who remained undefeated in five matches since taking over for Vicente del Bosque, had to make several changes to his first-choice squad due to a spate of injuries.Marc Bartra and Nacho Fernandez played in the center of the defense in place of Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos. Nacho Monreal was in for Jordi Alba at left back, Thiago Alcantara filled in for Andres Iniesta in midfield, and Morata started in strike for Diego Costa.But Lopetegui stuck with Vitolo on the right side of his attack, and the Sevilla forward didnt disappoint.Macedonias respectable start was ruined when Darko Velkovskis headed clearance landed in his own net in the 34th.Vitolo emerged as Spains leader in the second half, coming close tto setting up Morata and David Silva before he nodded in Silvas pass to double the lead in the 63rd. Chris Paul Jersey. Monreal added a volley the 84th for his first international goal before substitute Aritz Aduriz made it four goals a minute later after Vitolo let Silvas pass run through to the striker.LIECHTENSTEIN 0, ITALY 4Belotti put Italy ahead early after he headed in a corner kick by Alessio Romagnoli.Ciro Immobile struck Italys second in less than a minute, and Candreva made it 3-0 before Belotti netted his second just before halftime.Belotti has also scored eight times for Torino in Serie A this season.ALBANIA 0, ISRAEL 3Israel won the match that was played under tight security measures after media reports alleged a group of 15 persons arrested in Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia, planned an attack during the game.Albania was down a man and a goal from the 18th after Berat Djimsiti was sent off with a direct red card for fouling an Israel player with only the goalkeeper to beat.Eran Zahavi converted the penalty for Israel, which got a second goal from Dan Einbinder and a third from Eliran Atar late.Only the group winner automatically secures a spot for the World Cup in Russia. The second-place team must go through a playoff to make it to the 2018 tournament. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

When Iggi Pop was standing in retirement on a hill at Segenhoe Farm, the thought of him returning to the track to win more than $100,000 in stakes seemed distant.But thats the mark the veteran stayer has reached as he loads up again to contest the Listed ATC Cup (2000m) at Rosehill on Saturday.Trainer Peter Robl said the eight-year-old was six when he showed signs he could make a comeback.He bowed his tendon quite badly and he was retired, Robl said.It seemed as though he was destined to see out his days at owner Kevin Maloneys Segenhoe Farm after finishing ninth in the 2014 Metropolitan Handicap.Kevin said he looks good and hes running around so well bring him back and give him another try, Robl said.I think hes won over $100,000 since hes come back so hes a long way in front of a lot of horses Ill give him that much.His careers second act has produced two Listed placings in the Wagga and McKell cups.Iggi Pop picked up another cheque last start when he finished third in an open handicap over 1900m at Rosehill on NNovember 19. Jonathan Allen Redskins Jersey. He hasnt won for a long time but he keeps running his genuine honest races and its probably just a case of him winning one day when everything falls into place for him, Robl said.He gives 100 per cent but he probably just lacks that little bit of turn of foot now that hes a bit older.Iggi Pop has drawn barrier 13 of 14 for Saturday but has the advantage of in-form jockey Tim Clark who will ride him carrying the minimum 54kg.Robl also has Ninth Legion in the Group Three Festival Stakes and three-year-old filly Brulee in the ATC Membership Handicap (1200m).Brulee shoulders 60kg after a solid fourth in the Listed Lexus Hybrid Plate at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day.She has probably got too much weight for her to be winning but in saying that shes very genuine, Robl said.Robl is planning to step her back up to Listed company over 1400m in Brisbane later in the month. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
