NASHVILLE, Tenn. Cheap Air Max 90 Womens . -- The Tennessee Titans, a franchise that has struggled in recent years, find themselves at a turning point at the very same moment the Cleveland Browns are hoping to find themselves.Both teams have new coaches coming off an offseason filled with change in the front office and on the roster. Yet the Titans (2-3) start a three-game homestand Sunday needing a victory for their first winning streak since the end of the 2013 season. The Browns (0-5) are trying to avoid their first six-game skid to open a season since losing the first seven in 1999 as an expansion team.The Titans insist they arent in position to believe theyre better than the Browns.I mean, weve won five games in the last two years, so I dont think were (at a) standpoint to look at a team and judge them by their records, cornerback Jason McCourty said.Titans coach Mike Mularkey, given the job permanently in January after taking over last November on an interim basis, has had one simple message coming off a 30-17 road win at Miami.Its not about home, two in a row, the fans, the Browns have beaten us twice, Mularkey said. Its about weve got to win this football game. Win this game.Browns coach Hue Jackson has been scraping together his roster, with injuries forcing him to start three different quarterbacks and play five overall, and 10 starters having missed time. Cleveland lost 33-13 to New England last week, and this is the Browns fourth road game of the season, with a visit to Cincinnati next.But the Browns have won five of the last seven against Tennessee.I wasnt part of that and this is a new team and a new year, Jackson said. I think well come in ready to play. Obviously, our guys are working hard. Were eager and hungry for the opportunity and grateful for the opportunity to come to Tennessee and play a game against a good football team.Here are some things to know about the Browns and Titans:MURRAY ON THE RUN: Tennessees DeMarco Murray looks like the running back who won the NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2014. He ranks second in the NFL with 461 yards rushing and has at least 114 yards or more in two of the past three games. He leads the NFL with 33 first downs and has five TDs combined rushing and receiving. The Titans rank second in the NFL in rushing per game, averaging 148.6 yards, with Marcus Mariota coming off his best game running -- 60 yards in Miami.KESSLER BACK AT QB: The Browns will start rookie quarterback Cody Kessler for a fourth straight game, even though the third-round draft pick out of Southern California hurt his chest last week in the first quarter. He was replaced by Charlie Whitehurst, who injured his knee in the fourth quarter and was released two days later.SACK FLOODGATES: Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo already has six sacks this season for the best start of his career, and now some of his line mates believe theyve finally broken through themselves. Tackle Jurrell Casey and linebacker Derrick Morgan got their first sacks of the season last week in Miami and joined Orakpo in finishing with two each. Tennessee is now tied for eighth in the NFL with 12 sacks.BROWNS LEFT SIDE: Protecting the quarterback could be an issue for Cleveland. Starting left guard Joel Bitonio sprained a foot last week and is out indefinitely, while Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas did not practice Wednesday because of a knee issue. Thomas has started all 149 games in his career and has not missed an offensive snapped since being drafted in 2007. His consecutive snaps streak of 9,262 is the longest active streak in the league.HORTON CONNECTION: Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton had that same job the past two seasons with Tennessee and left the Titans in January after interviewing for the head coaching job hours before Mularkey was hired . Mularkey made Dick LeBeau his defensive coordinator and also changed the offense. Mularkey says he knows how Horton approaches and calls a game. I dont know how much difference its going to make in the game, Mularkey said.---AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AP-NFLFollow Teresa M. Walker at www.twitter.com/teresamwalker Cheap Air Max 90 Grey . Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots.

Houston won 3-0 to advance to face New York in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Last in the game, Di Vaio and Romero got into a shoving match with several Houston players. Romero appeared to elbow and kick Houston defender Kofi Sarkodie.Forwards coach Steve Borthwick says England are excited about Sundays one-off Test with Wales at Twickenham, live on Sky Sports 3. The fixture replaces the traditional end-of-season non-cap international against the Barbarians and is being staged to assist the Rugby Football Union in compensating Aviva Premiership clubs for the disruption caused by last autumns World Cup.England will select their strongest available team for the last of three Twickenham matches in eight months against Warren Gatlands men, but are missing players from league finalists Saracens and Exeter, who meet at the same venue 24 hours earlier. The following day the Grand Slam winners head to Australia for a three-Test series against the Wallabies and Wales depart for New Zealand, before a season that effectively started in September 2014 because of the World Cup finally comes to a close.Borthwick insists England should expect to win on Sunday despite the unavailability of stars such as Billy Vunipola, Maro Itoje and Jack Nowell in front of what is expected to be a full house.From our perspective, this is a Test match. It feels like a huge and exciting Test match, the forwards coach said.At this point weve sold 78,000 tickets so its going to be a sell-out or very close to a sell-out.

Dan Cole is ready for a tough test against vWales Ideally Id be playing in the Premiership final, but Im not.

He has six more points than the closest rookie defenseman.Were pretty hot right now and its fun to be on a winning team. said Werenski, who was selected eighth overall in the 2015 NHL Draft.His first assist came when he forced a turnover in the neutral zone that led to Brandon Saads goal with 5:34 left in the first, putting Columbus up 2-0.Werenski also assisted on Gagners power-play goal 1:14 into the second for a 3-1 lead. The 19-year-old defenseman fired a slap shot from the blue line that Gagner deflected for his team-leading 13th goal.It seems like the puck is finding the back of the net, Werenski said. I just threw it to the net, hoping it got there. I couldnt really see anything and next thing I know guys are celebrating.Boone Jenner, Brandon Saad and Matt Calvert also scored for Columbus, which owns the NHLs best winning percentage at .750.

NICEVILLE, Fla. Air Max 98 For Sale . -- Rodney Bullock scored 18 points and Emmitt Holt added 16 to lead Providence to a come-from-behind 60-51 victory over Memphis on Friday night in the semifinals of the Emerald Coast Classic.The Friars (4-1) play No. 7 Virginia, a 74-41 winner over Iowa, on Saturday in the title game after the two losing teams square off for third place.Providence coach Ed Cooley was magnanimous in victory, recalling that his Memphis counterpart, Tubby Smith, has been a longtime mentor.Smith is in his first year at Memphis.That team is going to be a very good basketball team, Cooley said of Memphis. We were just fortunate to get a couple breaks here and there.Memphis (4-1) went ahead by 12 points, the Tigers biggest lead of the game, with little more than four minutes left in the first half, led by Dedric Lawsons nine points. Lawson finished the game with 19 to lead all scorers.Neither team could get much going offensively in the second half, but Providence eventually took its first lead midway through the period, 37-36, on a dunk by Kalif Young. The Friars expanded their advantage to 49-41 but Memphis twice closed the gap to four points before Providence shut the door with a game-ending 7-2 run.BIG PICTUREMemphis: The Tigers opened the season undefeated against a relatively soft schedule, but they took a step back with the loss to Providence. Things will continue to stay tough in the Emerald Coasts consolation game. The upcoming slate includes 5-1 Mississippi and 4-1 Oklahoma but no other currently ranked teams before the Tigers settle into American Athletic Conference play.Providence: With only a five-point loss to Ohio State to mar their record, the Friars scored their most impressive win so far by beating previously undefeated Memphis, and they will get another big challenge on Saturday. It will be their best chance at gaining national attention before embarking on their always challenging Big East schedule.UP NEXTMemphis: The Tigers face Iowa in the tournaments consolation game at Northwest Florida State College.Providence: The Friars meet Virginia on Saturday for the tournament championship.

Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. http://www.airmax98forsale.com/ . "No difference at all," chirped U.S. roommate and linemate James van Riemsdyk. "Its still the same cranky Phil. VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- It was one of those sequences where everyone in the building could feel a goal coming.With the Vancouver Canucks trailing 1-0 late in the third period Saturday night, Henrik and Daniel Sedin, along with new linemate Loui Eriksson, played keepaway in the Calgary zone for the majority of a two-minute shift, searching for the tying goal against the weary Flames.(The Sedins) have that ability. Theyre big-game players, and they sense it, Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins said. Their whole careers been that way.They know they have the other team on the ropes and they go after it.Henrik Sedin finally found an opening when he fed the puck between his legs to Eriksson, whose deflected pass in front was batted home by Daniel Sedin with 3:51 left in regulation. Brandon Sutter then capped the night with the only goal of the shootout as Vancouver beat Calgary 2-1.It felt really good at the time, Daniel Sedin said of the shift that saw the Canucks finally break through. They were tired. They were just standing still. It was nice to see it go in.Sutter beat Calgary goalie Chad Johnson through the five-hole on the winner in the fourth round of the shootout after Ryan Miller, who made 25 saves through overtime, stopped all four attempts by the Flames at the other end.We just stuck with it, Sutter said. We bounced back well and that shift that Danny, Hank and Loui put in for two minutes was pretty impressive.Troy Brouwer was credited with the games first goal in the opening period after Eriksson, who was making his Vancouver debut, put the puck into his own net on a delayed penalty. Johnson made 30 stops in his first start for Calgary which remained winless through three games (0-2-1).Calgary opened the scoring at 9:14 of the first after Miller went to the Vancouver bench for an extra attacker with Brouwer about to be penalized for holding. Eriksson circled away from the Flames blue line before throwing a pass towards his own zone from near centre in hopes of finding a teammate.The only problem was the Canucks were in the middle of a lline change, and defenceman Erik Gudbranson couldnt get back in time before the puck slid across the goal line in front of a stunned Rogers Arena crowd. Nike Air Max 98 Og Buy. Ive never seen anything like that, Brouwer said. It was a bizarre sequence. I have never scored a goal and gone to the box at the same time.The goal was originally credited to Brett Kulak -- which would have been the first of the rookie defensemans NHL career -- but was later given to Brouwer, who now has two on the year.I dont think Ive ever scored a goal where I didnt touch the puck, Brouwer said.In another twist, the goal also went into the stat line as an empty netter because Miller was already off the ice.Its a weird way to catalog it, said Miller. Didnt let one in and dont get the shutout, but to get a win on opening night and help get us started in the right direction, I would have taken anything.For his part, Eriksson said he didnt even realize Miller had left his crease.As soon as I put it up there I saw it was an empty net and I was like: `What is going on here, Eriksson said. It slowly just glided in there. That was a tough one, but we won the game. Thats the important thing.The Flames and Canucks are both coming off disappointing 2015-16 campaigns that saw them miss the playoffs after making the postseason the previous year.But while Calgary is expected to rebound, Vancouver has been picked by many experts to finish at the bottom of the standings.We stuck with our game plan and didnt panic, Daniel Sedin said. I thought overall we played a decent game.Game notes The Canucks were the last of the NHLs 30 teams to open the regular season, while the Flames opened with losses to Edmonton in a home-and-home set. ... Calgary gave up 12 goals in the two losses to Edmonton after allowing a league-high 260 last season.UP NEXTFlames: At Buffalo on Tuesday night.Canucks: Host Carolina on Sunday night in the second game of their season-opening four-game homestand.

GLENDALE, Ariz. Wholesale Adidas NMD . -- When Larry Fitzgerald finally decides to hang up the cleats for good, one thing he will not miss is training camp.Training camp stinks when youre bad, training camp stinks when youre good, he said before the Cardinals went through their first practice in full pads on Sunday. Its training camp, man.This is the 13th camp for the wide receiver with career statistics that rank among the best who have played the game. Its a necessary exercise in monotony, he said.Will it be his last?I have no idea, he said. I dont even know what Im having for dinner tonight.Fitzgerald, who turns 33 on Aug. 31, is in the final season of a two-year, $22 million deal. The Cardinals are the only team he has known since they drafted him No. 3 overall in 2004.And he returns to a team loaded with talent. Every player who gained a yard or scored a point for one of the most potent offenses in the NFL last season is back.To be able to bring back that kind of power to a team thats already really good, it really is unheard of, Fitzgerald said. But were back to the basics now. We have to learn how to make sure we dont make the same mistakes we made last year, get off to a fast start. Thats the most important thing for us right now on the third day of training camp.Fitzgerald had one of his best seasons in 2015, catching 109 passes to break the franchise record he set a decade earlier. His 1,215 yards receiving marked the seventh time he passed 1,000 yards in a season.Now his career goals have dwindled to one.I just want to win a championship, he said. Thats it.The Cardinals are a lot better known to football fans after the acclaimed All or Nothing video series on Amazon.com chronicled the teams march to a 13-3 season, dramatic playoff victory over Green Bay and crushing loss at Carolina in the NFC championship game.Fitzgerald said the series, produced by NFL Films, gave everybody the view that we always see.Weve got a great group in this locker room, he said. Everybodys really approachable and close. Theres no egos in here. We all want to work. Its not above anybody to do whatever is asked of us.Thats hard to put together a team like that thats committed to that mentality for a whole season. Its a privilege to be on this squad and I think everybody who watched it got the same sense.Now the Cardinals have to start from scratch again.Theres a lot of optimism, Fitzgerald said. You look at the team and what weve been able to put together this offseason and what we have returning from last years team, its a lot of excitement. I think we all understand that we have the ability to be a force to be reckoned with throughout the course of the year.Obviously the health of our team has a big part to do with that, but what we have and the pieces we have are pretty special.Fitzgerald had his usual world travels this offseason, to France, England and Africa this time.He also lost two of the most important men in his life.His friend and former coach Dennis Green died of a heart attack. His agent Eugene Parker succumbed to kidney cancer.Fitzgerald was a ball boy for the Green-coached Minnesota Vikings. And Green was the Cardinals coach when the team drafted him.Those two men were tremendous mentors for me, Fitzgerald said. Coach Green gave me both of the jobs Ive ever had in my life. All the ups and downs Ive gone through in my career, hes always been there for me. Same with my agent Eugene Parker. I met him when I was 19 years old. We grew together through the years.So its really tough losing two people that I hold in the highest regard.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Clearacne Adidas NMD 2018 . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time.

PETERSBURG, Fla. ESPN looks at the main talking points from a Mexican Grand Prix which exploded into life -- and controversy -- in the closing laps.?Shock: Hearing Sebastian Vettel having an absolute meltdown on the radio in the closing stages as he sat behind Max Verstappen, who he felt should have given up the position after running wide in their fight for third. Vettel eventually was promoted to third after Verstatppen incurred a five-second penalty.But most shocking was Vettels expletive-laden radio messages, especially those aimed at race director Charlie Whiting as he crossed the line. Expect the Vettel-Verstappen feud from earlier in the season to reignite in the coming days.Shocker: The stewards not looking into multiple incidents during the race. Lewis Hamilton ran wide at Turn 1 at the start, as did Nico Rosberg while holding off Nico Rosberg, something which Max Verstappen was penalised for late on. Daniel Ricciardo questioned the lack of punishment for Hamilton immediately after the race and its a valid question and another great example of inconsistency from the men dishing out the penalties. Its easy to understand why Vettel was so upset at the end.?Overtake of the race: Kimi Raikkonen rolled back the years for his pass around the outside of Nico Hulkenberg at Turn 4, which sent the Force India driver into a spin. Honourable mention for Kevin Magnussen on Jenson Button at Turn 1 and 2 early in the race.?Defend of the race: Jolyon Palmer is a man raccing for his F1 future at the moment and turned in a great bit of defensive driving on Fernando Alonso late in the race. Cheap Adidas NMD China. He eventually lost the battle for 13th but it showed the Englishman is going to go down fighting.Fastest lap: Daniel Ricciardos late switch to soft tyres saw him close right up on the battle for third position. A ballsy lunge down the inside of Vettel on the penultimate lap nearly ended in tears, but he ended fourth anyway following Verstappens late penalty.Driver of the Day: Hamilton turned in a comfortable win and the race was his as soon as he got into Turn 1 (grass and all) ahead. This one has to be split between a few drivers. Vettel should have earned this one for turning in a great drive from a poor grid position for third, though his radio demeanour left a lot to be desired. He later lost the position in the stewards room.?That means this award is shared: Nico Hulkenberg for a great drive to seventh, which he kept despite that late spin, having done a miraculous job to qualify fifth on Sunday. Also getting the nod is Marcus Ericsson, who lost a front wing in the carnage at the start, deserved a point for after a mammoth 69-lap stint on mediums saw him finish 11th.?EDIT: This story has been amended to reflect Vettels post-race time penalty, which dropped him from third to fifth.?

ST. Black Air VaporMax 2018 . LOUIS -- To hear Kendrys Morales tell it, luck is finally on his side.But the Kansas City Royals designated hitter/outfielder has been more than just lucky the past week.Morales homered and recorded his sixth straight multi-hit game on Thursday to lead the Royals to a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.Kansas City won for the fourth time in five games and took the two-city, four-game series three games to one.Things are falling for me, Morales said.Indeed.Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta homered for the Cardinals who have lost their last seven home games -- their longest losing streak since Aug. 2-15, 1983.Wade Davis recorded his 19th save in 21 opportunities.Morales, a designated hitter playing right field for the second straight night, doubled in the sixth inning off Mike Leake (5-6) to push the lead to 3-1.

He went 12 for 16 in the series and started in the outfield for the first time since 2008.Since going 1 for 15 in a four-game set with Cleveland on June 2-5, Morales has been on fire. He was hitting .191 on June 5, but has gone 32 of 69 since to push his average to .262.I felt like before, I was making good contact, Morales said.

Hes been getting great at-bats.Morales is 25 of 53 (.472) lifetime against the Cardinals with five homers and 13 RBI. His 456-foot drive in the eighth inning off Tyler Lyons ties him for the longest home run by a visiting player at Busch Stadium III, which opened in 2006.Kansas City reliever Dillon Gee (3-2) picked up the win allowing one run in two innings.Moss ripped his 17th homer of the season off Royals starter Chris Young, who gave up one run and one hit over four innings, but walked six.The drive, which went 477 feet according to the Cardinals, is the longest in the history of Busch Stadium. It is the second-longest this season behind Giancarlo Stantons 490-foot blast for Miami on May 6, in a 6-4 win over Philadelphia.I hit it hard, Moss said. I know Im strong and I know how far I can hit it when I get a hold of one.Leake gave up three runs, two earned, in seven innings. He struck out four and walked one.There were a couple of pitches Id like to take back, Leake said.Kansas City pushed across an unearned run in the first before Jarrod Dyson doubled in Alcides Escobar in the second.Gees victory gives the Royals bullpen a 16-5 (.762) mark, the highest percentage in the majors. His lone mistake came to Peralta in the sixth inning.Im just glad I was able to do the job, Gee said. I felt good.Matheny was ejected in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Mike Everitt. It was Mathenys first ejection of the season and 12th in four-plus season as a manager.GOLD GLOVE MORALESMorales last appearance in the field before Wednesday came on Sept. 27, 2008, while with the Angels.He handled all four chances on Wednesday and one on Thursday.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: RHP Kris Medlen gave up five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings of a rehab start for Triple-A Omaha on Thursday against Memphis.

Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Todd Gurley seemed all set to become one of the NFLs most prominent running backs when he moved west with the Los Angeles Rams.So far, his numbers arent looking good under the Hollywood spotlight.Gurley is halfway through an unimpressive season on an offense apparently incapable of getting him room to run. While his coaches praise his work ethic and mental approach, Gurley acknowledges hes simply trying not to get frustrated.Just got to stay consistent, Gurley said Friday before the Rams flew to New York. Just stay patient.Gurley is 18th in the NFL with 451 yards rushing, but his 3.1 yards per carry are the worst among the NFLs top 45 ball carriers. He hasnt broken a run longer than 33 yards all season, and his carries are declining to just 41 over the past three games.With little respect for the Rams passing game, defenses have loaded up to stop Gurley all season long -- and its working. He hasnt topped 85 yards in any game this year, and he has scored just three touchdowns.The Rams (3-5) have lost four straight as they head out to face the Jets (3-6), who have one of the NFLs best run defenses. Gurleys wait to get rolling could easily last another week, but the Rams cant afford to wait much longer for results from the leagues 31st-ranked offense.The biggest challenge for us offensively is running the football, coach Jeff Fisher said. Todd is not getting enough carries. Our passing numbers are skewed. ... His touches and his numbers need to increase significantly. Thats what we discussed, and what were working on right now.But when Gurley gets those touches, he hasnt been able to do much with them, which leads to an offense that fell behind and required Case Keenum to throw 99 passes over the last two games.The Rams are desperate for any consistency in their offense, but offensive coordinator Rob Boras realizes a steady running game would make it easier for Gurley to find the rhythm he has lacked all season. Gurley and Los Angeles offensive line simply cant execute it against those run-focused defenses.For any runner, and especially a guy like Todd ... the more carries they get, the more that theyre going to settle in, Boras said. Grey Youth Air VaporMax. Not only as a runner, but as the blockers, the O-line, the tight ends. Part of that is staying on the field and sustaining some drives and eliminating three-and-outs. Thats obviously what were trying to get done.Gurley and the running game seemed to be the Rams greatest offensive strength heading into this homecoming season. The Georgia product romped to 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, impressing the entire NFL with his speed and tenacity. The 10th overall pick in the 2015 draft was the Offensive Rookie of the Year despite starting just 12 games, making up for it by averaging 4.8 yards per carry.But Gurleys production hit another trough last weekend when he got 48 yards on a season-low 12 carries against Carolina. He even watched the final drive from the sideline in favor of Benny Cunningham, the Rams favored back in two-minute drill situations.The struggles have prompted Gurley to go back to the elemental foundations of his position. While his coaches havent criticized his performance, Gurley clearly has been discussing the importance of patience when hitting holes or reading blockers.Even when the hole is not there, (whats important is) still being able to just read it the same, and dont try to do nothing outside of the play, Gurley said. Just making sure youre on the same track as everybody else, because once you start to predetermine stuff, thats when you know youre not on the same page as your linemen. You try to bounce it outside. You get holding calls. You just want to stay consistent.Gurley missed two practices this week with a thigh injury, but returned at full strength Friday. He plans to play in New York, and his body feels much better than it did last season, when he missed training camp while recovering from knee surgery.You just have to stay patient, stick to the plan, keep going out there and work hard, Gurley said. Just hope that things open up, and Im pretty sure they will.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL 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 ' ' '

HARTFORD, Conn. Cheap Nike Air Max 98 . -- The expulsion of two college athletes on sexual misconduct grounds highlights a little-known facet of the latitude schools are given when investigating such cases: They can mete out punishment even in the absence of a complaint from the alleged victim.Former Yale University basketball captain Jack Montague and former Colorado State-Pueblo football player and wrestler Grant Neal both filed federal lawsuits this year over their expulsions, alleging their schools mishandled information that originated with someone other than the alleged victim.There is no real complainant, said attorney Andrew Miltenberg, who represents Neal and has been the lawyer for about 100 men accused of sexual assaults on campuses. There is no victim making the charge. There is the school acting on some sort of hearsay or information.Neal was suspended after a woman reported to school authorities that her friend had been assaulted. According to the lawsuit, both Neal and the alleged victim said the sex was consensual, but the woman said she stopped the encounter at one point because Neal wasnt wearing a condom and then resumed it after he put one on.Montague was expelled after a friend of the woman involved in his case went to a school official who ensures Yales compliance with Title IX, the federal law designed to prevent sexual discrimination in education.The lawsuit alleges the Title IX officer brought the complaint more than a year after the incident and despite being told the woman did not believe Montague heard her when she tried to end their sexual encounter. The victim eventually cooperated only after the Title IX officer informed her that Montague had previously received counseling after an incident involving another woman, according to the lawsuit.The lawsuit alleges the school didnt tell her that case involved him shoving a paper plate down someones shirt following a drunken argument outside a pizza parlor.Both athletes say the sexual encounters were entirely consensual, and neither was ever charged with a crime. But in both cases, the schools acted after finding that a preponderance of the evidence indicated sexual misconduct more likely took place than didnt.Thats a much lower standard than the beyond a reasonable doubt standard of the criminal justice system.Schools have been using the preponderance standard since receiving a Dear Colleague letter in 2001 from the Department of Educations Office for Civil Rights, outlining how they should handle sexual misconduct allegations. It warned that schools that fail to promptly investigate allegations of sexual assault and harassment, even if the accuser does not make a complaint to the institution, can face a loss of federal money.Miltenberg, Neals attorney, said that raises questions about whether schools are trying to conduct fair investigations or making examples out of high-profile defendants to appease the Office for Civil Rights.Even at the schools with the greatest of endowments, like a Yale, the threat of taking away federal funding is significant, he said.KC Johnson, a professor at Brooklyn College who has written extensively on how schools handle sexual assault allegations, said the threat of an OCR investigation into a university also is powerful motivation for the institutions to be aggressive and err on the side of punishing the accused.Schools are not capable of dealing with situations like this very well, he said. Its hard to fairly be a prosecutor, an investigator and a juror simultaneously.He said thats why schools including Yale have a policy of having its Title IX officer bring cases in the absence of a victim complaint only in extraordinary circumstances, such as when there is an acute risk to the community. He said its not clear that either of these cases meet that threshold.Beth Hamilton, the director of prevention and programs at the Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence, defends the preponderance standard as appropriate in a college setting.Schools dont have the forensic tools and other resources necessary to conduct a police-style investigation of every report and cant force people to testify, she said.Discipline from a school is often appropriate, she said, whether the conduct rises to the level of a crime or not.The worst that a university can do is expel a student from their institution, she said. The criminal justice process should have a higher standard, because the worst thing that can happen is you can incarcerate somebody.But Johnson points out that being expelled could cost Montague millions of dollars over the course of his life, prevent him from getting a job and leave him labeled for life as a rapist.Yale called its investigation of the Montague case, and its process for investigating allegations, thorough and fair.Only about one out of 10 cases has ended in expulsion, and the decision to expel a student has been made only after the most careful consideration, based on the facts and, when appropriate, disciplinary history, the school said in a statement.Cora Zaletel, a spokeswoman for Colorado State-Pueblo, said the school would not comment because of the litigation.Its unusual for a victim to not want to participate in the process, or even to not understand that what happened to them was misconduct, said Viktoria Kristiansson, a former prosecutor who now works as a consultant for AEquitas, a group that advises schools and prosecutors on cases involving violence against women.She would not comment on the specifics of the Yale and Pueblo cases. But, she said, schools dont have any choice but to investigate and act on allegations, no matter their genesis.The reason we have these various options for reporting is because the goal of having these systems in place is to keep communities safe, she said. Whether these reports are coming from the victims themselves or society, we should hope that these are always going to be looked into. Nike Air Max 98 Og Buy .

WACO, Texas -- A Baylor football player arrested this week on a felony stalking charge was allowed to play in 2015 despite being accused of sexual assault and violating a no contact order with his accuser, ESPN reported Thursday.Rami Hammad was suspended from the Baylor football team on Monday after he was charged with stalking, harassing and assaulting a former girlfriend.ESPNs Outside the Lines reported Thursday that a different woman told Baylor officials in September 2015 that after going with Hammad to his apartment, he forced her to perform a sexual act. ESPN did not identify the woman.The woman told ESPN she did not go to police because she did not perceive the incident to be rape and worried about the repercussions of reporting a football player. Only after an acquaintance told her about a similar encounter with Hammad did she report it to Baylors Title IX office, which is supposed to enforce federal anti-gender discrimination guidelines.After Hammad confronted her about reporting him to Baylor officials, the woman requested and received on Sept. 30, 2015, a no contact order issued by Baylor that told Hammad to stay away from her, ESPN reported.Two days later, Hammad confronted her again on campus, yelling at her until two other male students approached. At that point she called Baylor police, but ultimately decided not to press charges.ESPN reported that it reviewed the no-contact order as well as emails the woman received from Baylor.When contacted by ESPN, Hammad referred questions to Waco criminal defense attorney Phil Martinez. Martinezs office said he is on vacation and he did not immediately respond from The Associated Press for comment.Baylor spokeswoman Tonya Lewis said she could not comment on specific cases.Every Title IX-related allegation is always investigated, but the process must be equitable and fair to both parties involved until there is a fair outcome in the investigation. Both the complainant and respondent have equal rights and aree allowed due process. Nike Air Max 98 Supreme For Sale. No-contact orders are equitable directives where both parties have responsibilities to avoid communication or contact with each other, Lewis said.Baylor separately faces three federal civil lawsuits by eight women who have accused the school of ignoring or being indifferent to their claims of sexual assault dating back to 2005.Baylor allowed Hammad to keep playing football despite the no-contact order, the call to police and the fact that just a month earlier, the university had hired the Pepper Hamilton law firm to investigate how the school handled sexual assault complaints.Pepper Hamilton released its findings in May, concluding that Baylor had mishandled sex assault complaints for years and had created a culture that the football program was above the rules.In response, Baylors board of regents demoted President and Chancellor Ken Starr and fired football coach Art Briles, but allowed all of Briles assistants to stay on staff.The woman in the Hammad incident told ESPN she declined to participate in Baylors judicial affairs trial in October because it would be too emotionally upsetting to be near him. She was allowed to have an investigator speak on her behalf.The woman said she heard nothing from Baylor until receiving a Nov. 12 email telling her to avoid contact with him, what exits to take from a science building, and that she must notify school officials 24 hours in advance if she needed access to any building where she did not have a scheduled class.The woman said Baylors Title IX office told her they would not disclose the results of Hammads judicial affairs trial.A Baylor spokeswoman said in an email to ESPN that any determination of a Title IX procedure is communicated to both parties and all parties have the right to appeal as well as access to case-related information and investigations.

CLEVELAND -- Major League Baseball said the umpires were wrong. Nike Air Max 97 Mens . The Athletics knew that all along. "We saw what we saw last night," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. One day after umpire Angel Hernandez and his crew failed to reverse an obvious game-tying home run by As infielder Adam Rosales in the ninth inning following a video review, MLB executive vice-president Joe Torre said an "improper call" was made in Wednesdays game between the Indians and Athletics. However, despite pointing out the critical error, Torre said the "judgment" call will stand. The Indians won 4-3, and went on to sweep the four-game series with a 9-2 victory over the As on Thursday. Melvin, who had been in contact with MLB officials since shortly after Wednesdays game, said he never thought the ruling would be overturned. "No, I didnt think there was any chance at that," he said, "because thered been calls before that have been missed and nothings happened because of it." Few, though, seemed as egregious as this error. The As were already down by six runs in the series finale when Torres statement was released. In it, the former Yankees manager made it clear the umpires had blown the call. "By rule, the decision to reverse a call by use of instant replay is at the sole discretion of the crew chief," Torre said. "In the opinion of Angel Hernandez, who was last nights crew chief, there was not clear and convincing evidence to overturn the decision on the field. It was a judgment call, and as such, it stands as final. "Home and away broadcast feeds are available for all uses of instant replay, and they were available to the crew last night. Given what we saw, we recognize that an improper call was made. Perfection is an impossible standard in any endeavour, but our goal is always to get the calls right. Earlier this morning, we began the process of speaking with the crew to thoroughly review all the circumstances surrounding last nights decision." Before MLBs ruling, Melvin said he still believed he witnessed a home run and nothing will ever change his mind. The stunning decision not to reverse the call was the talk of the sports world with everyone seeming to agree the As had been wronged. Retired Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones didnt mince words with his take on the umpires blown call. "What good is instant replay if u dont have umpires who interpret it correctly?" Jones wrote on Twitter. "Some course of action has to be taken w/ umps. Even worse than that, there were 2 other umpires looking at it with him. What the hell were they lookin at?? Musta been "get away day"! In New York, Mets manager Terry Collins said that human error is part of the game. "Once in a while were going to make a mistake. I will always defend that," he said. "Pretty soon this game is going to be played by robots and well all be watching it." With two outs, Rosales sent a drive to left that appeared to easily clear the 19-foot-high outfield wall and strike a metal railing. Melvin asked Hernandez and his crew to review the hit, and three umpires left the field to view replays in a designated area near their dressing room. After a lengthy delay, the umpires returned and instructed Rosales, who was set to sprint home, to stay at second, a decision that shocked him the As, the Indians, 14,000 fans in attendance at Progressive Field and people watching on television. Following Thursdays game, Rosales shrugged when he was told about Torres ruling. "Thats the final decision," he said. "I mean, theres nothing else you can do about it. Once it happened, it happened. Its over, that was yesterday. Just got to move on from it and continue forward." Bartolo Colon (3-2) was tagged for three homers in four innings by the Indians, who swept a four-game set from the As for the first time since 1999. "He didnt look awful," Melvin said. "The velocity was there, the balls he got in the middle of the plate they hit and they did it the whole series. So, sometimes the other team just beats you and today that was the case. We had a couple chances early on, and we didnt come through. "And every time they had an opportunity, they did." Melvin brought his lineup card to home plate before Thursdays game for his first face-to-face meeting with Hernandez and his crew since the disputed ruling. Melvin was cordial and returned to the dugout after having joked earlier he hoped he wouldnt get ejected. Did he say anything to the umps? "Nope," he said. "Just Hi. Thats fine by me." Randy Marsh, MLBs director of umpires, attended Thursdays game. Marsh did not comment specifically on the disputed play, but was sent to Cleveland to speak with the umpires and make sure the replay equipment was functioning properly. Marsh said everything appeared to be in order. For the As, their four days in Cleveland couldnt have gone much worse. Oakland came to town after winning two of three against the Yankees, but the majors top-scoring team managed just eight runs in four games against the Indians. "Theyre playing great, cant do anything wrong," Melvin said. "And were struggling. Thats what happened. What happened last night shouldnt affect today. They just beat us." NOTES: Josh Donaldson homered in the sixth inning for the As. ... Oakland continues its 10-game trip on Friday in Seattle with the opener of a three-game series. ... Melvin said Jarrod Parker (sore neck) will make his scheduled start on Saturday against the Mariners. ... Oakland pitchers have given up 22 homers in the past 12 games after allowing 20 over the first 24. .... The As are 6-14 since opening the season 12-4.

Ancelotti says Ronaldo has recovered from a hamstring injury but "but he doesnt feel comfortable yet so we wont risk him." Madrid is third in the Spanish league, six points behind leader Barcelona, going into Saturdays game against Valladolid. Cheap Air Max 97 .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. http://www.airmax97silverforsale.com/ . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. DENVER -- Don Mattingly knows this wont be the last time he jogs out to right field to check on his rookie phenom. The Los Angeles Dodgers manager was cautioned well in advance that Yasiel Puig has one speed -- all out. Puigs simply going to run into things, including fences. Hanley Ramirez had four hits, including a solo homer in the ninth, to help the Dodgers hold off the Colorado Rockies 10-8 Wednesday night in a game Puig left early with a bruised left hip after his leaping catch in right field. "He just plays like that," Mattingly said. "They kind of warned us coming up he plays like that and hes going to get hurt." Puig reached up to rob Nolan Arenado of a hit in the fifth, only to smack his hip on a padded column below the scoreboard in right. Puig stayed down on the warning track for several minutes before jogging around the outfield and remaining in the game. The next inning, Puig drove in a run with a sacrifice fly before being taken out when the Dodgers made a double switch. Puig, who was just named the NL player of the month, finished 1 for 3 with a double. Team officials said a precautionary X-ray was negative and hes listed as day-to-day. "I think hell be able to play but well see," Mattingly said. Puig has been sensational since being called up on June 3, hitting .440 this season with eight homers. And when he fell to the dirt, Dodger fans held their breath. Matt Kemp quickly rushed over to check on him, along with Ramirez and Adrian Gonzalez. Mattingly also jogged out to the outfield to see how Puig was feeling. Earlier in the day, Puig won the National League player and rookie of the month awards. It was hardly even a contest after he hit .436 in June. His 44 hits were a Dodgers rookie record for a month. "Now, its getting to be where you kind of expect him to do something all the time," Mattingly said. Juan Uribe, Gonzalez and Kemp added homers for the Dodgers, who have won 10 of their last 11 games to climb back into the thick of the NL West race. Zack Greinke (6-2) struggled on the mound but still earned his third straight win. He gave up five runs in five innings and tied a career high with seven walks. "I felt I did as good as I could do today," Greinke said. "Its not very good, but thats how bad it was. We played well. Tough game but we pulled it out." Reliever Paco Rodriguez pitched 1 1-3 scorelesss innings to set up Kenley Jansen, who recorded the final four outs to pick up his eighth save in 11 chances. Buy Nike Air Max 97. Jansen got pinch-hitter Tyler Colvin to pop up to end the game in front of a sellout crowd waiting to see the fireworks. Tyler Chatwood (4-2) never found his grove, surrendering a season-high six runs, five earned, and 11 hits in five innings. Chatwood entered the game with a 2-0 mark at Coors Field, with a 3.14 ERA. "He didnt get away with much," manager Walt Weiss said of his starter. "I didnt think Chat threw that bad. I thought he threw the ball all right. "I think right now theyre a tough lineup to get through." With the Dodgers leading 8-7 heading into the ninth, Ramirez and Kemp hit homers to give them some breathing room. The Dodgers would need the insurance runs as Arenado had an RBI single to drive in Wilin Rosario after the catcher led off the ninth with a walk. Every starter in the Dodgers lineup had at least a hit, with Ramirez extending his hitting streak to 14 games on a single in the first. "Hanleys just a beast," Mattingly said. "He seems to be on a mission this year. He had a rough start to the year being hurt, but hes been focused all year." A day after Michael Cuddyer had his 27-game hitting streak snapped, the outfielder singled in his first at-bat and later drove in a run by drawing a bases-loaded walk. Carlos Gonzalez added a solo homer off Greinke in the first inning. The Rockies couldnt hold an early 4-1 lead against a hot-hitting Dodgers team that had 17 hits. "Every team goes through those good runs. Every team goes through a downward turn," said Cuddyer, who got a haircut with his long streak over. "The good ones go through the good runs a couple of times over the course of the season. Theyre on a good run right now, playing really well, hitting the ball really well." NOTES: After a rehab stint with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (strained left hamstring) could rejoin the team in San Francisco for the weekend series. ... Rockies OF Dexter Fowler (bruised right hand) is hoping he will be ready to go when hes eligible to come off the disabled list on July 11.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah resorts still want skiers and snowboarders to come enjoy their groomed slopes and high-speed lifts this season, but theyre also offering expanded options for people who want to get a taste of the backcountry without the risk of going alone. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 For Sale .New opportunities include a pair of new lifts at Powder Mountain Resort that open 5,000 acres of powder skiing through trees, and a new luxury cat-skiing operation at Whisper Ridge in northern Utah on 60,000 acres. Ski Utah is also widening its marketing of a long-running guided tour that takes in the back country near six resorts in one day.The appetite for exploring beyond the boundaries of resorts has been growing in recent years. An estimated 5.7 million skiers and snowboarders ventured into the backcountry in 2015-2016 -- up 34 percent from 2008-2009 ski season, according to research from SnowSports Industries America. A large chunk of those people went into the side country, areas connected to resorts that resemble backcountry.Utah ski resorts are hoping to repeat last years banner season in which they parlayed good early-winter snow and buzz created by Vail Resorts new mega-resort into a 10-year high for visitors. Several of the states 14 ski resorts are hoping to open in November to kick off season, though a lack of early season snow could make that difficult.Heres a look at whats new this year, including several of the new options for backcountry-like experiences.---POWDER MOUNTAIN: NEW LIFTS, NEW TERRAINPowder Mountain Resorts new lifts give skiers and snowboarders access to 10 new groomed runs on about 1,000 new acres. It also allows skiers to explore 600 new acres of rugged terrain in a bowl that before was only accessible by all-day guided snow cat operations. Skiers can get to the runs off the lifts, but must pay an additional $25 (or $20 for season pass-holders) to take a snow cat ride out of the bowl each time they ski down. Regular lift tickets cost $79 for adults.The terrain is ideal for beginner and intermediate skiers who want to practice powder and tree skiing, said J.P. Goulet, Powder Mountain spokesman.The lifts and 6 miles of new roads connect the existing resort to the site where Powder Mountains owners -- a group of young, wealthy entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders and artists who purchased the resort in 2013 -- are planning to build a New Age mountain town. Built around a vehicle-free main street, they tout the community as a rethink of the American mountain town with homes, pop-up stores, micro apartments, farm-to-table restaurants and yoga boot camps. Work has begun, but the project is expected to take several years.Powder Mountain, about 50 miles northeast of Salt Lake City, is also limiting day tickets to 2,000 per day so they can offer skiers and snowboarders uncrowded slopes.Deer Valley is the only other ski resort that has a set limit for daily skiers, though other resorts turn people away when parking lots get full, said Paul Marshall, spokesman for Ski Utah.---LUXURY CAT SKIINGFor skiers with plenty of money who are looking to get totally off the grid, Whisper Ridge Cat Skiing offers 60,000 acres of private terrain to carve through in the day and the option to spend nights at luxury yurts.The operation, located about 85 miles northeast of Salt Lake City, uses modified snow cats to carry skiers up and down the hills.Day rates are $450 per person in the early and late season and $495 during the heart of winter. Yurt lodging rates range from $725-$1,000 a night depending on the type of yurt and dates.It is not the first cat skiing operation in Utah. Park City Powder Cats has been around for years. It offers rates of $549-$569 per day, depending on the dates. Alta, Powder Mountain and Snowbird also are offering cat skiing packages.---ONE DAY, SIX RESORTSSki Utahs long running Interconnect Tour has a developed a loyal group of customers who come back, but officials are hoping to entice skiers who may be among those tempted to ski more in backcountry terrain, Marshall said.The guided tour, which costs $395 per person, takes skiers down backcountry routes near six different Utah resorts, starting at Deer Valley near Park City and finishing at Snowbird in the Little Cottonwood Canyon. The tour usually takes participants about 25 miles and down about 16,000 vertical feet.Guides carry rescue beacons and take other safety measures needed in the backcountry. Skiers must be 16 or older and must be advanced skiers. No snowboarders are allowed.It offers a taste of what the backcountry is about with the assistance of guides who know the terrain and area so well, Marshall said. Its a great way to kind of put your toes in the water.---This story has been corrected to show that the new Powder Mountain lifts open up 600 acres of new rugged terrain, not 5,000.

Dickey relinquished it in all of three pitches.Jacoby Ellsbury overcame a first-inning deficit with a two-run homer, then added an RBI single against the knuckleballer to lead the New York Yankees over the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 Monday.I had a lot of movement on it, Dickey said of his knuckler. Sometimes this games a matter of centimeters, you know, one that gets off the barrel, doesnt get off the barrel and its popped out to right field.Jose Bautista was thrown out twice on the basepaths for the AL East-leading Blue Jays (77-60), who remained one game ahead of Boston.Toronto had been 9-3 against the Yankees this year, winning seven of the prior eight matchups, and the Blue Jays needed only seven pitches to jump in front when Devon Travis doubled and Bautista singled, both on 0-2 counts.But Brett Gardner took a strike in the bottom half and singled, and Ellsbury drove a high knuckler over the right-field short porch for his seventh home run.Ellsbury added an RBI single in the third, and rookie Travis Austin hit his second double of the game in the fourth, a drive off the wall in left-center that drove in two runs for a 5-1 lead.I thought he was a little inconsistent with the knuckleball today, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.Dickey (9-14) gave up five runs and seven hits in four innings on a blustery afternoon, his second shortest start this season.

After third baseman Chase Headleys backhand catch snared Josh Donaldsons liner in the fifth, Bautista made the innings final out when he tried to go from first to third on a single to left by Edwin Encarnacion, the second of his three hits.BALKDickey was unhappy that first base umpire Mark Wegner called a balk against him in the third inning, allowing Ellsbury to advance.I think they interpreted it that I moved my leg before I started to go to first base, Dickey said.

MADISON, Wis. Cheap Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 . -- Vitto Brown hadnt even broken a sweat when Wisconsin coach Greg Gard pulled the forward and fellow starter Ethan Happ just more than a minute into Thursday nights game with Chicago State.But the move sent a message.Brown ending up scoring 12 points to lead No. 9 Wisconsin as the Badgers shook off some uneven play from their starters to beat the Cougars 69-51.Its always important to send a message with your leaders like us because they know if we mess up and can be taken out, the other guys will be held to the same standard, Brown said.Gard said he figured some of his starters would be sluggish two days after a 79-67 loss to No. 22 Creighton. But after seeing a couple of careless turnovers to start the game and a quick 8-0 deficit, he had enough.Gards move paid off. Khalil Iverson came off the bench to add 11 points, and freshman guard DMitrik Trice dished out seven assists in 23 minutes.
