COLUMBIA, S. Wholesale Air Max 97 .C. -- Tennessee coach Butch Jones promised his team and his coaches would own their latest loss to South Carolina.That might be as difficult a task as trying to end the suddenly spiraling Vols three-game losing streak.Jones ticked off a grocery list of mistakes -- missed tackles, too many penalties, three turnovers -- that led to the Gamecocks stunning 24-21 victory over No. 18 Tennessee on Saturday night.Leadership needs to step up on this football team, Jones said. It starts with myself and the coaches, but its everybody. Everybodys going to own it, everybodys responsible. We cant let this one loss define who we are.Jake Bentley threw for two touchdowns, Rico Dowdle ran for 127 yards and another score to hand No. 18 Tennessee its third straight loss.The Gamecocks (4-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) had struggled on offense much of the season and were expected to be a comfortable bounce-back win for the powerhouse Vols (5-3, 2-3) after consecutive defeats to No. 9 Texas A&M and No. 1 Alabama.Instead, South Carolinas defense bottled up the Vols most of the game, holding them under 300 yards of offense for just the second time this year. Joshua Dobbs had two passes intercepted by Jamarcus King and was tagged with a third turnover on a mishandled handoff.It just goes back to having everybody locked in Dobbs said about correcting the errors.Tennessee got a final chance with 35 seconds left and drove to the South Carolina 41. But Aaron Medleys desperation, 58 yard field goal attempt was well short on the final play.This is a spark, South Carolina linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams said. This is the start of something for the next couple of games and next year.First-year coach Will Muschamp improved to 5-0 all-time against Tennessee, the first four victories coming during his time at Florida.Bentley was again on target in his second college start at quarterback. He threw for 167 yards and completed 15 of 20 passes, including a 17-yard TD throw to Bryan Edwards and a 35-yard scoring toss to K.C. Crosby in the final period to put South Carolina up 24-14.Tennessee could not dig itself out of that hole and ended a three-game win streak against South Carolina.For Muschamp, it was validation his program is trending upward.He told his players that if they continued to invest in the team, good things will happen.We know what good looks like and were going to get there, Muschamp said.THE TAKEAWAYTennessee: The Vols third straight SEC loss may have been the most devastating of all as they fall two games behind Eastern Division leader Florida with three league games left. Tennessee will have to root for these same Gamecocks in two weeks when they head to The Swamp to face the Gators.South Carolina: No question this is Muschamps biggest victory at South Carolina, and suddenly puts the Gamecocks in line for a bowl game with struggling Missouri and FCS opponent Western Carolina ahead in November.POLL IMPLICATIONSCount on Tennessee falling from the rankings when it comes out. Its one thing to lose to top-10 opponents, its another to lose to a team that entered last in SEC scoring offense.EJECTED GAMECOCKSSouth Carolina lost starting cornerback Chris Lammons and starting safety D.J. Smith to ejections, both for transgressions with Tennessee receiver Jauan Jennings . Lammons threw two punches at Jennings after the two tied up in the opening quarter and he was thrown out for unsportsmanlike conduct. Smith was called for targeting on a hit of Jennings.Lammons Tweeted later his actions were selfish and he apologized to fans, teammates and coaches.BIG RETURNTennessees most explosive play was a 100-yard kickoff return by Evan Berry that cut a 10-point deficit to 17-14 in the third quarter.UP NEXTTennessee steps out of conference to play FCS opponent Tennessee Tech at home next Saturday.South Carolina closes out five straight games at home against Missouri next Saturday. Nike Air Max 2018 Discount . The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive.

He was dismissed by the team last March after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record. http://www.airmaxchina.com/ . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. The U.S. Supreme Court will not hear the NCAAs appeal of the Ed OBannon case, leaving in place lower court rulings that found amateurism rules for big-time college sports violated federal antitrust law but prohibited payments to student-athletes.The justices on Monday rejected the appeal in a class-action lawsuit originally filed by OBannon, a former UCLA basketball star, and later joined by other athletes. The court also rejected OBannons separate appeal that called on the justices to reinstate a plan for schools to pay football and basketball players for the uses of their names, images and likenesses.It means the status quo has been preserved for a while longer, antitrust attorney Robert Boland said.The effect of the high court action is to leave the NCAA vulnerable to more legal challenges that are working their way through the courts, but it also gives the association time to make changes to blunt those possible threats.While we are disappointed with this decision not to review this case, we remain pleased that the 9th Circuit agreed with us that amateurism is an essential component of college sports and that NCAA members should not be forced by the courts to provide benefits untethered to education, including providing any payments beyond the full cost of attendance, NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy said in a statement.In 2014, a U.S. district judge decided the NCAAs use of names, images and likenesses of college athletes without compensation violated antitrust law. Judge Claudia Wilken ruled schools could -- but were not required to -- pay football and mens basketball players up to $5,000 per year. The money would go into a trust and be available to the athletes after leaving college. Wilken also ruled schools could increase the value of the athletic scholarship to meet the federal cost of attendance figure for each institution.The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year overturned Wilkens ruling on the payments of $5,000 but upheld the antitrust violation.While we would have liked the Supreme Courts review, we remain pleased with our trial victory and the 9th Circuits decision upholding the finding that the NCAA violated the antitrust laws and affirming a permanent injunction to remedy that violation, which enables NCAA member schools to offer college aathletes significant additional funds toward the cost of attendance, Michael Hausfeld, lead attorney in the OBannon case, said in a statement. Sale Air Max 2018. The NCAA already has addressed one aspect of Wilkens ruling by increasing the amount of aid schools may provide athletes. In 2015, the NCAA passed legislation allowing schools to increase the value of an athletic scholarship to include each institutions federally regulated cost of attendance figures. The cost of attendance includes estimated values for things such as travel between campus and home, and clothing and food.Two cases currently in lower courts present potential threats to the NCAAs amateurism model and its desire to restrict compensation to athletes in ways that would be more akin to an employer-employee relationship.A case led by antitrust lawyer Jeffrey Kessler and originally filed by former Clemson football player Martin Jenkins and another claim first filed by former West Virginia player Shawne Alston but now consolidated with other cases challenge the NCAAs right to cap compensation for athletes at the value of a scholarship.The Alston case also seeks damages for athletes who played college sports before the scholarship was increased to include cost of attendance.I think those cases will probably more determine this issue, but it really has thrown it back into a murky place where we know that amateurism per se as practiced by the NCAA is not protected under the rule of reasoned analysis, antitrust attorney Robert Boland said. On the other hand, what precisely does that mean to student-athletes in this generation and going forward? Highly unclear.These other cases, though, are nowhere near a resolution and time is on the NCAAs side.To some degree you could say thats a strategy for the NCAA and in the interests that are in charge of college sports, said Boland, who is director of the masters of sports administration program at Ohio University. That they maintain the status quo despite litigation is both a practical reality, but also an opportunity for them to begin to reform in a way thats effective. To begin to make some changes that would kind of diffuse the future lawsuits that are coming.
