Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson has refused to blame a controversial call against his side by the NRL bunker for their 22-18 NRL loss to Parramatta on Friday night. Vapormax Schweiz Schuhe .With the game in the balance and his side attacking the Eels line in the dying seconds, Parramatta winger Clint Gutherson appeared to knock on as the Roosters put it through the hands.After the ball went to ground, Joseph Manu picked it up but was bundled into touch thanks to some desperate defence by Corey Norman.Replays suggested the ball had glanced off Guthersons fingertips in the lead up but the bunker ruled there was insufficient evidence to suggest Gutherson had made contact.The Eels were awarded possession at a crucial point in the game, denying Roosters one final set.Robinson has had frequent run-ins with the referees and officials this year and was fined $40,000 for his ANZAC Day spray and he last week blasted the bunker for awarding Josh Jackson a go-ahead try in their loss to Canterbury.However, Robinson bit his tongue in his post-match press conference after the loss against the Eels.I saw what I saw, Robinson said.Weve only got the one screen (in the coachs box). That was the decision, theyve got better vision than us. So well see what they say.Gutherson himself later denied he had made contact with the ball.I didnt touch that one. It was just good defence from Norms to get over there and stop it, Gutherson said.They had to get it right and it took them a while to get it right. But in the end thats what the bunkers there for.

Northamptonshire 142 for 4 (Newton 69*, Keogh 50) trail Leicestershire 519 (Pettini 117, Eckersley 107, Raine 64, Sanderson 6-58) by 377 runsScorecard Ned Eckersleys third consecutive first-class century saw Leicestershire take control at Wantage Road with a first-innings total of 519 before reducing Northamptonshire to 142 for 4 at the close on day two, trailing by 377.Eckersley became just the third man to make three centuries in successive matches for Leicestershire, following Ben Smith in 2001 and Charles Dempster before the war.He helped Leicestershire into a commanding position. They found two early wickets in the Northants reply before the home side recovered from 33 for 2 with pleasant fifties for Rob Keogh and Rob Newton. But when Keogh dragged a cut into his off stump to end a third-wicket stand of 91, and nightwatchman Azharullah was caught at short leg in the final over of the day, the visitors were firmly on top.Their position on the second day was set up by Eckersleys determined century. He steered his side through the second new ball on the first evening - surviving a tough dropped chance on 4 when pulling towards midwicket - and then cajoled the lower order to help his side post their highest total of the season.When the eighth wicket went down, Eckersley had 71 but he found a game partner in Ben Raine, who, aafter a skittish start, settled to make a seasons best 64. Nike Air Vapormax Schweiz. The pair added a record ninth-wicket stand for Leicestershire against Northants of 123 and Eckersley went through a hundred in 156 balls with 11 fours and a six.Raine eventually fell to Keoghs offspin and Eckersley was last man out trying to lift the same bowler over long-on, Leicestershire eventually bowled out after 144.2 overs.The visitors then struck in the fifth over of the Northants reply with David Murphy tamely chipping a back-foot drive to extra-cover and Alex Wakely edging Rob Sayers offspin to Niall OBrien. At that stage, it was a very poor day for the home side who again allowed Leicestershire to recover from morning pressure.Ben Sanderson took 3 for 19 in an opening eight-over burst to bring up a third five-for of the season and leave the visitors 356 for 8. First to go was Mark Pettini, adding just eight to his overnight 109, getting lifter that came off the shoulder of the bat to point. Clint McKay edged a back-foot drive behind the wicket and Sayer got a bottom edge into his stumps trying to leave three balls later.But Eckersley remained calm, Raine settled and Leicestershire went on to take control of the game.

The outfields at Kingsmead and Queens Park Oval have been rated poor by the ICC match referees who oversaw the washed out Tests between South Africa and New Zealand in Durban, and West Indies and India in Trinidad. NFL Jerseys China .The ICC said the officials - Andy Pycroft in Durban and Ranjan Madugalle in Trinidad - had expressed concerns in accordance with clause three of the Pitch and Outfield Monitoring Process. The match referees reports have been forwarded to the concerned home boards, the WICB and Cricket South Africa, which now have 14 days to respond. CSAs response, the ICC said, will be reviewed by ICC general manager, cricket, Geoff Allardice, while match referee David Boon will assess the WICBs reply.Then, as per the rules, the grounds will either receive a warning or a fine not exceeding USD 15,000, along with a directive for appropriate corrective action. A repeat offence over the next five years would draw a fine not exceeding USD 30,000.In all, 11 sessions out of 15 were lost to a wet and soft outfield at Kingsmead, while in Port of Spain West Indies and India were able to play only one session across five days.It was the first Test played in Trinidad in August, which is the wet season there, and rain had hampered preparations in the days leading up to the match but during the game itself there was largely sunshine. However, with there not being enough covers at the ground to protect the bowlers run-ups or the outfield, and no super sopper available either, the outfield did not recover enough to allow play. The draw meant that India, who needed to win the Test to retain their No. 1 Test ranking, lost the top spot to Pakistan. The Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board had already said it would investigate the reasons behind the washout.The Durban Test was also scheduled in what is traditionally the off season in South Africa, during the winter. Rain forced the players off the field around lunch on day two, and the big damage was done to the outfield that night, when the ground took 65mm of water. Here, too, the covers did not protect large parts of the field, and the super sopper was made to stop operating for fear it would do further damage to the soft patches that persisted into day five despite no more rain falling.There were concerns over the Kingsmead outfield being underprepared even before the match began, as it had been relaid in June following complaints from South Africa and New Zealand that the surface was too hard during the limited-overs games played there last year. Similar comments were levelled at Centurion, the venue of the upcoming second Test, but the SuperSport Park outfield was relaid in April once the season ended; work could not get underway at Kingsmead till the Comrades Marathon - for which it is the ending point - was completed on May 29. Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. http://www.cheapnfljerseysonlinechina.com/ . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. The fourth edition of the College Football Playoff rankings will be revealed Tuesday night (7 ET, ESPN), and there are, at most, two more opportunities for contenders to impress the 12 members of the selection committee.On Dec. 4, the committee will release its final rankings, with the top four teams meeting in the College Football Playoff semifinals at the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on Dec. 31.There wasnt a lot of drama in Week 12, as 10 of the committees top 11 teams won, but there could be some movement, especially outside of the top four. Heres a look at the top questions facing the committee this week:1. How high can three-loss USC rise? If Colorado loses to Utah on Saturday, USC will win the Pac-12 South division and play for the conference title. If the Trojans win, would the committee consider a three-loss team that looks completely different from how it looked in September, when it lost to Alabama, Stanford and Utah -- three ranked opponents that they played either on the road or at a neutral site? Right now, USC sits at No. 13, so it has a lot of ground to make up, but with Louisville and Utah both losing, it should get at least a little boost this week. USC has improved drastically under quarterback Sam Darnold. According to ESPN Stats & Information, since the start of October, USC has the highest average game score in the country (87 out of 100). Game score accounts for quality of the opponent, location of the game, the final result and how well a team controlled the game. The Trojans have certainly impressed the five former coaches on the committee. As committee chair Kirby Hocutt said, Honestly, when you talk to the coaches that are in the selection committee room, I dont think any of them if they were coaching today would want to play that Southern California team right now.2. How will Wilton Speights injury affect Michigan? Saturdays game against Indiana was the first time the committee had a chance to evaluate Michigan with backup quarterback John OKorn, and while UM got the 20-10 win, it wasnt pretty. It was Michigans weakest passing performance in 15 years, as OKorn was 7-of-16 for 59 yards, the fewest yards passing for Michigan since 2001. Michigan ran the ball well, as DeVeon Smith had a career-high 158 yards, but the offense was one-dimensional and lacked the creativity it displayed with Speight. Because of that, its possible Michigan drops in this weeks rankings. The bigger issue will be Saturday in Columbus, where it will take more than a strong running game to beat the Buckeyes. If Michigan wins, it will clinch the Big Ten East division.3. How does Oklahoma stack up against the two-loss Big Ten teams? The Sooners earned their first win against a ranked opponent, and it came agaiinst West Virginia in Morgantown, a tough place to play. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Authentic. They also have two decent losses: to Houston, which could be ranked this week after beating Louisville, and Ohio State. The question is whether that win at West Virginia will be enough to bump OU ahead of Wisconsin this week. If it does, that would mean its time to take OUs playoff hopes more seriously, because then the committee might take a two-loss OU ahead of a two-loss Wisconsin if they were their respective conferences champions. As long as Wisconsin and Washington are both ranked ahead of the Sooners, though, Oklahoma remains on the outside looking in and will need the Huskies to lose.4. Whats Oklahoma States record again? Mike Gundy thinks he has 10 wins. His official record -- the one the committee is using -- has his team at 9-2. In spite of Gundys protests, the Cowboys controversial loss to Central Michigan stands, and Hocutt has repeated that for two weeks now. We treat it as a loss, he said, However, the selection committee is aware of what transpired in that football game. Thats not the Cowboys problem. The bigger issue is a weak strength of schedule that includes a loss to Baylor and a one-point win against Texas Tech at home. Right now, the committee thinks there are four two-loss teams better than the Cowboys, and they all won in Week 12. A win at 5-5 TCU is unlikely to sway the committees perspective on Oklahoma State.5. Where does the Group of 5 race stand? The highest-ranked champion from a Group of 5 conference is guaranteed a spot in a New Years Six bowl, and this year it would be the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. Last week, one-loss Boise State was ranked one spot ahead of undefeated Western Michigan, a decision that went back and forth in our room, according to Hocutt. In the end, No. 20 Boise States win over Washington State carried more value than any opponent No. 21 WMU had beaten. Will that philosophy still stand now that Washington State lost? The committee also will consider the impact Wyomings last-second win against San Diego State had this week on a two-point attempt that failed. If the Cowboys had lost, Boise would have been in control of the division and favored to win the Mountain West. So now what? According to ESPNs Football Power Index, Western Michigan is the only Group of 5 team currently ranked by The Associated Press that is even favored to win its conference (71 percent chance to win the MAC). Boise State (25 percent), Navy (35 percent), South Florida (5 percent) and Troy (20 percent) are all long shots, according to FPI. Houston has already been eliminated from its conference title chase.

NEW YORK -- Mark Teixeira and the New York Yankees hardly needed another firsthand look to know how nasty Andrew Miller is on opposing hitters. Cheap Saucony Shoes NZ .Thats exactly what they got, though.Corey Kluber put Clevelands rotation back on track, Miller earned a save against the team that traded him last weekend and the Indians beat the Yankees 5-2 on Saturday.Hes got great stuff, theres no doubt about that. I wish him nothing but the best, Teixeira said. We were facing two of the best pitchers in baseball.Mike Napoli, Jason Kipnis and Rajai Davis homered to help the AL Central leaders recover from an early two-run deficit.Kluber (11-8) fired eight innings of five-hit ball, beating CC Sabathia (6-9) in a matchup of pitchers who won the AL Cy Young Award with Cleveland.Miller closed with a one-hit ninth for his first save with the Indians. And lo and behold, it came at the expense of his old pals in pinstripes.Tough seeing him in another uniform. Hes one of my all-time favorite teammates, Brett Gardner said. The fastball looks like about 105 (mph) and the slider that you think is going to hit you ends up being a strike. Hes as tough as they get.The lanky left-hander, acquired Sunday in a blockbuster deal, entered to a warm ovation at Yankee Stadium and promptly gave up Gardners leadoff single. Jacoby Ellsbury and Teixeira struck out on checked swings before Brian McCann grounded out to end it.It kind of took me back to my Boston days of facing that section of the lineup and pitching a lot here, Miller said. Im glad I got the job done.Miller said opposing the Yankees was no fun at all and just a huge distraction, honestly.Its a lot easier just to focus on executing pitches when theres no relationship or anything like that, he said, sounding relieved. This last weeks been pretty hectic and, like I said, happy I survived and found a way.Millers previous nine saves this year came with New York.Its strange to see him in a different uniform, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. He was just here.New York rookie Gary Sanchez lined an RBI double off Kluber with two outs in the second and scored on a wild pitch.Kluber settled in from there and struck out the 3-4-5-6 hitters in the third and fourth. The Yankees also ran themselves out of two chances in the middle innings -- including an embarrassing blunder by Gardner, who went tearing around second base on Ellsburys fly to medium right field and was easily doubled off first.I just thought it was going to fall, Gardner said. Obviously, it was a bad read by me. One of those things where I got a little bit greedy and paid the price for it.Clevelands talented rotation, so effective all season, came in 0-4 with a 15.58 ERA this month. The team was outscored 50-32 overall in losing four of its previous five games.Kluber struck out eight, walked one and threw 100 pitches in improving to 3-0 with a 1.46 ERA in his last five starts.He really knows how to pitch, Girardi said.Kipnis connected leading off the fourth for Clevelands first hit and is batting .478 (11 for 23) with four homers against the Yankees this year. Napoli broke a 2-all tie with an opposite-field solo shot in the sixth.Sabathia was charged with three runs in 5 2/3 innings, dropping to 1-5 with a 6.62 ERA in his last nine starts.His command was a little off today, but he still gave us a pretty good shot to win, Girardi said.EARLY RETURNSJustus Sheffield struck out 11 of the 21 hitters he faced Friday night for Class A Tampa in his first outing since joining the Yankees organization. The left-hander pitched six innings of two-hit ball and retired his final 12 batters in a 7-1 win over Daytona. Sheffield was one of the touted prospects New York received in the trade that sent Miller to Cleveland.CATCHING ONSanchez, impressive since he was called up from the minors Wednesday, made his second straight start behind the plate and showed off his strong arm again when he pounced on a pitch in the dirt and threw out Brandon Guyer at second trying to advance. As Ive said, hes here to play, Girardi said before the game. Were treating him just like any other catcher.Girardi said he told McCann he should take grounders at first base to stay prepared and give the Yankees options. Hes done it before and hes pretty comfortable over there, the manager said, adding that McCann will probably be the DH all weekend and then catch some next week in Boston.BULLPEN SHUFFLENew York called up LHP Chasen Shreve from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and sent down RHP Johnny Barbato. Shreve struck out two in 1 1/3 scoreless innings.UP NEXTIndians RHP Carlos Carrasco (7-5, 3.12 ERA) starts the series finale Sunday against RHP Masahiro Tanaka (7-4, 3.46), who was hit hard Tuesday by the Mets. Tanaka is 0-2 with a 5.71 ERA in three career starts against Cleveland. Cheap Shoes NZ Outlet . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot.

Darren Weir has scrapped Villers Stakes plans for Rageese, but Victorias premier trainer is still likely to be represented in Sydney racings summer feature. Asics Schweiz Schuhe .Weir said seven-year-old gelding Kenjorwood would probably head to Sydney for Saturdays $250,000 Group Two 1600m race at Randwick after his last-start second over the same distance in an open handicap on the Pakenham Cup program.The Villiers had been the plan for stablemate Rageese until he finished unplaced in the Festival Stakes in Sydney last Saturday week.I was going to take Rageese but hes in the paddock, Weir said.Kenjorwood will be entered for sure and its probably a good race for him, really.Hes fourth up now. First-up he just needed the run and his next two starts have been really good.Hes a tough horse on the speed.Kenjorwood has won over the Randwick mile in his only Sydney appearance in an open handicap on heavy ground in July last year when trained by Peter Moody.

Wellington coach Ernie Merrick is refusing to get carried away with their first set of back-to-back wins in over a year, and challenged his team to make it three next week.A five-star performance from Roy Krishna inspired the Phoenix to a dominant 2-0 win over Central Coast on Saturday to claim successive victories for the first time since October 2015.Merrick was full of praise for Krishna, who netted his fourth goal in three games, but was just as ecstatic with players deputising for five regulars away on international duty.Now Merrick has urged his men to keep gathering momentum in the A-League, although theyll have to do it against a Melbourne Victory side that fired six past them three weeks ago.I thought that was a very important game for us to win. I thought it was a terrific occasion, Remembrance Day, and coming over here to Canberra, Merrick said.But I feel as though we need to go on a run of more than two, so weve got to keep it in perspective. Asics Schweiz Schuhe China. .To have so many inexperienced players come into a team at once, I knew wed prepared for it pre-season, but its still a lot of pressure away from home.Merrick admitted that without his troupe of All Whites, he had planned to maximise Krishnas speed against the Mariners defence at GIO Stadium.Roy was on fire up front and his pace is incredible.We knew that, so we set up for a counter-attacking game. Our defence though, that was where the real inexperience was, he said.So with an experienced line-up at the back, we had to make sure we were very compact and we relied on fast-breaking play and I thought Roy, Hamish (Watson) and Roly (Bonevacia) were first class there.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- The Court of Arbitration for Sport aims to give verdicts within weeks after three track officials challenged IAAF life bans in a Russian doping and bribery scandal. Wholesale Shoes NZ .Hearings for Papa Massata Diack of Senegal and two Russians -- former IAAF treasurer Valentin Balakhnichev and coach Alexei Melnikov -- were held from Monday to Thursday.CAS says none of the three came to Switzerland, with proceedings conducted by video conference.Diack, the son of former IAAF president Lamine Diack, is subject to an Interpol request for his arrest. French investigators want to question him in a case that also implicates his father.The IAAFs ethics panel imposed life bans in January over an alleged conspiracy to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars from Russian marathon runner Liliya Shobukhova to avoid a doping ban.

LAS VEGAS -- Sergey Kovalev was knocking out everyone put in front of him when his handlers went to HBO a few years back asking for a coveted spot on one of the networks boxing shows.Not so fast, the network said.You got two problems with this guy, promoter Kathy Duva remembers an HBO executive saying. One, hes a light heavyweight. Two, hes a Russian.Two problems, indeed. The combination isnt particularly attractive to boxing fans, or the network that buys many of the biggest fights.But on Saturday, it doesnt matter that Kovalev is a champion at light heavyweight, a division that historically has gotten little respect. Not when hes got unbeaten Andre Ward in front of him in a classic slugger vs. boxer matchup that is perhaps the most anticipated fight of the year.And the Russian part? Well, it helps that Kovalev now lives most of the year in Los Angeles and has quickly picked up the English language.I learned English only with reporters, he said this week, displaying a gift for gab in his new language with a small group of boxing scribes.Seven years after coming to the United States to seek fame and fortune, Kovalev is on the brink of both. A devastating puncher who has not lost in 31 fights, he will try to do what no one has done in 20 years -- win a fight against Ward, the last American man to win boxing gold in the Olympics.If the fight isnt compelling enough, Kovalevs story should be enough for some to pony up the $64.95 to watch it at home. His Russian fans will get the fight free, with the nations Channel 1 lined up to broadcast the bout live in his home country.America gave me opportunity. Its two great countries for me, Kovalev said. I love both countries, which is why I have two houses, in Russia and America.Kovalev comes from a fighting family, though he is the only one to actually put on gloves and do it in the ring. His mother, he says, used to beat up people as a child in Chelyabinsk, a factory town, where she works in a liquid metals plant.My mother fought a lot of times on the street growing up, even with boys, he said. She grew up in poor area.Kovalev grew up poor, too, with the family of five living in two rooms of a three-room apartment they shared with an unrelated elderly woman. He fought in the amateurs, though he neever got a shot at making the Russian Olympic boxing team, before deciding to come to the U. Cheap Nike SB NZ Free Shipping.

Kovalev stopped Simakov in the seventh round of the December 2011 fight, and Simakov fell into a coma and later died.The death devastated Kovalev, and it might have unraveled his career like it has other fighters who have killed men in the ring.

AMES, Iowa -- Like many downtrodden programs, Iowa State has often struggled to find enough defensive linemen who can make a big impact on the field. Cheap Saucony Shoes Ireland .The Cyclones might be in decent shape next year.Last week, Iowa State signed a pair of junior college linemen, Ray Lima and Matt Leo, and wide receiver Matt Eaton. The Cyclones were already set at receiver before the addition of Eaton, but Lima and Leo are expected to play immediately for a unit that looked pretty thin.Were not backing down from anyone in recruiting, coach Matt Campbell said. For us to get to where we need to go, the offensive and defensive lines are critical to us.Iowa States biggest defensive loss was tackle Demond Tucker, a two-time second-team All-Big 12 selection.Having Lima ready to replace Tucker would be a best-case scenario for the Cyclones. Lima was rated among the best junior college defensive tackles available by some recruiting publications despite redshirting last season. In 2015, Lima has 21.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks for El Camino Community College in California.Lima, who also drew interest from Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, TCU and California, will likely be more of a run stopper at Iowa State.Ray has got everything you want in an interior defensive lineman. Hes got elite twitch. Hes got really good length, Campbell said. Hes got every factor in terms of leadership.The Cyclones lose another lineman that earned second-team All-Big 12 honors in end Jhaustin Thomas.Leo might be more of a project than Lima, but he appears to have a ton of potential.Leo grew up in Australia, where he played professional rugby briefly before moving to the U.S. to take up football. Leo showed enough as a sophomore for Arizona Western last season to earn top-50 junior college rankings by ESPN and 247 Sports -- and he picked the Cyclones over Oklahoma and other big-name schools.You just see his film, and each game gets better and better and better, Campbell said. Hes got really good technique. He plays with relentless effort.Eaton started at Temple before getting injured and receiving a medical redshirt. He left the Owls after barely seeing the field in 2015, but last season at Pearl River Community College in Mississippi he caught 37 passes for 392 yards.Eaton will have to work hard to see playing time though. Big 12 first-team receiver Allen Lazard and Trever Ryen are returning for their senior seasons, and youngsters Deshaunte Thomas, Carson Epps and Hakeem Butler all showed plenty of promise in 2015.To be able to hit on all three guys was incredible, Campbell said.---More college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap Saucony Shoes Ireland Free Shipping . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web.

SEATTLE -- Before the season began, Washington coach Chris Petersen was emphatic that despite any early hype, his teams place in the national landscape shouldnt be judged until at least after the sixth game. Old Skool Canada China .So here we are, six weeks into the season, with the Huskies undefeated and seemingly on a path for a spot in the College Football Playoff should they keep winning.Is Washington worthy of being the No. 5 team in the country as it enters its bye this week?Before the season, we hadnt done anything. We hadnt played anybody for this year or anything. Thats the stuff thats like, I didnt get that at all, Petersen said Monday. Since then and these six games, our guys have played well. Theyve played hard and theyve executed at a good level. For people to say that this is a good team, thats completely legit up to this point for sure. Now rankings and all that, you know how much theyre going to change from right now to six weeks from now. We kind of all know that. Thats why its like, `Stay the course, one game at a time.The past six weeks have vaulted Washington (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) from a preseason conference contender to a legitimate part of the playoff discussion. If Washingtons 44-6 dismantling of Stanford didnt prove the Huskies legitimacy, then the 70-21 beating placed on Oregon last Saturday certainly did.The victory over the Ducks seemed to represent a cumulative release of 12 years of frustration built up over 12 straight losses to Oregon. The 70 points were the most scored by Washington since 1945 and the second-most ever allowed by the Ducks.And it only added to the spotlight the Huskies will be in from here on out.This is just one half of the season, Petersen said. Got a really good start, and now theres no hiding from anybody. Well see if we can continue to play good football.The Huskies start has been so impressive that the fact they are bowl eligible is a complete afterthought just a year after Washington had to win its final two games to qualify for a bowl. Its also created buzz about quarterback Jake Browning as a Heisman Trophy contender.Considering Browning did not play in the fourth quarter in either of the Huskies first two games against Rutgers and Idaho, the sophomore quarterback leads the country with 23 touchdown passes -- one more than Californias Davis Webb -- and a 204.9 pass efficiency rating. A year ago, Browning threw only 16 TD passes for the season with 10 of those coming in the final six games.Browning accounted for eight total touchdowns in the win over Oregon -- six passing and two rushing -- to tie the Pac-12 record for most total touchdowns in a game. Hes on pace to topple Keith Prices school record of 33 TD passes in a season.Petersen believes its too early for any Heisman discussion regarding Browning.You guys already know Im going to say that. I just think that, Petersen said. I think theres so much football left to be played for all this different stuff. I think the good thing is our team is playing well and hes playing well without question. So those are good problems to have. Discount Old Skool Canada . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday.
