Gus Malzahn still remembers the 2006 season, his first in college football. Tyler Lockett Youth Jersey . He remembers the wow moment when he stood across the sideline from Steve Spurrier, one of his coaching heroes. Malzahn wore a visor that game, a look that began when he was a high school coach and continued until just recently, because he wanted to emulate Spurriers trademark look.That same season, Malzahn also matched wits with Pete Caroll, Les Miles and Urban Meyer.It was a dream come true for Malzahn. He had made the jump straight from coaching high school football to calling plays in the SEC as the?Arkansas?offensive coordinator. That type of jump was rare back then, and its almost unheard of today.However, by the end of the season, Malzahn was ready to move on. He left Arkansas, an SEC school in his home state to take the same position at Tulsa.Why? It wasnt a promotion. It wasnt even a lateral move. I think it was a deal of having common philosophy in our values and how we run a program and what we believed in, and it was great combination,?former Tulsa and current Arizona State coach Todd Graham said.Ten years later, Malzahn hasnt forgotten that season. Those experiences, both good and bad, helped make him the coach that he is today.To understand what happened in 2006, you have to first understand how Malzahn arrived in Fayetteville. Before taking the job, he was one of the winningest high school football coaches in the state of Arkansas. He won at every stop during his 14 years as a high school head coach -- Hughes, Shiloh Christian, Springdale -- and turned down college job offers after the 2003 and 2004 seasons. In 2005, his Springdale team went 14-0, outscored their opponents 664-118 and captured the Class 5A state championship.?At Arkansas, head coach Houston Nutt was coming off back-to-back losing seasons in 2004 and 2005. He had served as his own offensive coordinator his first eight seasons with the Razorbacks, but there was pressure to make a change. People inside the program, including athletic director Frank Broyles, wanted to bring Malzahn in to run the offense.[Broyles] said the thing that would be really good for this state right now would be to hire Gus Malzahn, Nutt said. I visited with Gus. I was impressed with him. I was impressed with some of the things he did in high school. I said OK, thats probably going to work.He also had five good players with him.Those five players, or the Springdale Five as they were called, played no small part in why Arkansas hired Malzahn. Nutt couldnt afford to let elite-level recruits leave the state, and they were planning to leave. Mitch Mustain, the 2005 Gatorade National Player of the Year, wanted to commit to either Notre Dame?or Texas. Ben Cleveland and Damian Williams both committed early to Florida, and Bartley Webb was already committed to the Fighting Irish.Malzahn changed all that. Mustain, Cleveland, Williams and fellow Springdale teammate Andrew Norman all signed with the Razorbacks in 2006 as a result of his hire. Only Webb stuck with his original commitment and signed with Notre Dame.The only reason we went to the University of Arkansas was because of Malzahn, Cleveland said.If the 2006 season was to be judged solely by results, then it wouldve been a smashing success for Malzahn and that entire Arkansas team. After losing the opener to USC, the Razorbacks won 10 straight games, won the SEC West and played in SEC championship game.No Arkansas team has made it to Atlanta since.But nobody realized what was going on behind the scenes. The arrival of Malzahn led to a division in the locker room between the Springdale group and other members of the team. There were unhappy players and unhappy parents, who complained about playing time, which often was not Malzahns call. It was not what he signed up for when he left high school football to take his shot in college.You were the God of Arkansas and now youre the offensive coordinator, Cleveland said. Thats a lot of pressure. And then on top of that, you brought in four of your kids that look up to you, trusted you and he has no control over it. It makes him look like a bad person.It was hard. You could see he was frustrated.On the field, it wasnt much better. Malzahn wanted to run his hurry-up, no-huddle offense on every drive, but Nutts style had always been to huddle and he wasnt willing to give up on that. So they did it both ways. At times, theyd go fast and run Malzahns tempo. Other times, theyd slow it down and huddle.We never really had an argument, Nutt said, because I would always say, Hey this is what we want. I know the ideas that you had. You want to be a little bit more up-tempo and you want to throw the ball. But here are your playmakers.Even though everybody might have had a different opinion on what was the best way to go about doing it, when we got to practice and we got to Saturday, everybody was extremely professional, added Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, a graduate assistant at Arkansas that year. There were never any blowups or anything like that. We all pulled in the same direction, and I think thats why we were able to win the West.After the bowl game, Malzahn resigned and left for Tulsa. Andrew Norman, one of his former players, followed him there. Both Mustain and Williams transferred to USC. The only Springdale player who remained at Arkansas was Cleveland.On Saturday, Malzahn will coach against the same Arkansas program that gave him his start in college football 10 years ago.It feels like a long time ago, Malzahn said recently. Maybe a couple years ago it didnt, but now it feels like a long time ago.Any time you do something new, you learn on the go. You learn a lot about college football. That first year, I learned a lot about myself. Any time you take the next step to the next level, youre confident but you have questions. Will this really work at this level? Well you dont know until you do it. You dont just tell nobody that.It did work. It might not have worked the way he wanted at Arkansas that first year, but it worked at Tulsa in 2007 and 2008 when his offenses put up more yards than any team in the country. It worked the first time at Auburn when he was offensive coordinator and played an integral role in the Tigers 2010 national championship. It worked at Arkansas State in 2012 when he won a conference championship his first year as a head coach.And its still working for Malzahn, now in his fourth year as Auburns head coach.When youre in this competitive league, one of the toughest leagues in America, its not easy, Nutt said. If you look now, hes not calling plays. That was what he was known for. So hes delegating responsibility, and hes trying to do the best he can.Handing the playcalling duties over to Lashlee was the latest proof that Malzahn has evolved as a coach. He better understands the rigors of recruiting and the daily grind it takes to do this job. Hes even letting his players wear wristbands and gloves, and letting them listen to music in the locker room. He never wouldve done that when he was coaching in high school.In a lot of ways, though, hes the same coach he was 10 years ago.To be honest with you, the thing about Coach that probably stands out the most is hes very consistent, Lashlee said. He is who he is. Hes business. Hes focused on pretty much the one thing that hes doing at the time. And hes a perfectionist. Thats the way he is and thats the way he kind of coaches, and it carries over to his players.He was that way in high school, and he never really changed when he went to college. I think thats probably one of the main reasons hes been successful. Hes stayed true to himself. Kam Chancellor Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Michael Bennett Womens Jersey .

HILLSBORO, Ohio -- An Ohio high school Saturday blamed ignorance as it apologized for a banner displayed at a prep football game recalling the countrys brutal treatment of Native Americans.Several news organizations reported that some Greenfield-McClain High School cheerleaders held up the banner at a Friday night game against the Hillsboro High Indians.

Thousands died of starvation, illness or exposure.A horrific mistake was made, Greenfield-McClain High School said in a statement.

It pledgeed that the school would partner with local organizations to further educate students about atrocities faced by both the Native American and African-American cultures. Shaun Alexander Seahawks Jersey. he statement expressed deepest sympathy to those of Indian and African-American descent, and a sincere apology to the communities, families and students of Hillsboro, Greenfield and elsewhere.The statement said the school was investigating how this deplorable situation happened and will take appropriate action.Parents had told WHIO-TV in Dayton that an earlier apology posted on the schools Facebook page was deleted after parents began commenting and asking questions.Hillsboro won the game 43-40.

We have got the situation that he plays outside of England and we have got to sort that situation out.I think we are close to a resolution and there is no doubt he will be selected in an England squad in the next six months.The highly-rated Armitage has been playing in France but has been reportedly linked with a move to Wasps, which could see him back in international contention.Asked if a returning Armitage might be in his thoughts, Jones said: If he comes back and manages to get in the Wasps side, which will be difficult to do.If he gets fit and he wants to play for England, then we will consider him. He is certainly a talented player.

Cooper, who has played 58 Tests since 2008, was left out of the final two IRB World Series 7s tournaments in Paris and London later this month, the last major dress rehearsals ahead of the Games in Brazil which run from August 5-21.Friend said: We just havent had the opportunity to work with him as much as we would have liked over the past five months. Each day I have a group of 20-plus players working on different structures and patterns of play and I dont think we would have got the very best out of Quade had we just thrown him into a tournament with limited preparation - particularly for an event as momentous as the Olympics.Although we are still a few months out from the Games, I think it offers the fairest outcome for everyone by making the call now.Quade can channel his energies into Toulon while we can enter the next phase of our preparations for Rio knowing the direction we want to take.Although Cooper played in two sevens matches in Las Vegas and Vancouver, his Olympic chances were hampered by complications over his release from Toulon and a lack of playing time.

The second match of Indias upcoming ODI series against New Zealand is likely to be pushed back by a day. R.A. Dickey Braves Jersey . According to the original schedule released by the BCCI, the day-night match was to be played on October 19 at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. But it is now set to be played on October 20, with the BCCI having approved a request from the Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) to not have it clash with the North Indian festival of Karva Chauth.It is a big festival in Delhi, a senior BCCI official said. We realised having a day-night match during the festival might be disruptive.The selectors, meanwhile, will meet in Delhi on September 12 to choose Indias squad for the three-match Test series against New Zealand, which begins on September 22 at Green Park in Kanpur. The first Test is set to be Indias 500th Test match.New Zealands tour will begin with a three-day warm-up match against Mumbai from September 16 to 18. They will then play three Tests in Kanpur, Kolkata and Indore, and five ODIs in Dharamsala, Delhi, Mohali, Ranchi and Visakhapatnam. Greg Maddux Braves Jersey .

For Serie A’s 20 clubs, the finish line is in sight. The two representing the city of Milan, however, might be starting to wonder what race they have even Bucks Womens Jersey been running. They had presumed for many months to be part of that elite group chasing after a Champions League berth. Instead, at the end of this gruelling marathon, they find themselves contesting a prize that hardly seems worth winning.Sixth place is just about all that Inter or Milan can aspire to, after a weekend in which they each hit new depths of calamity. Their prize (barring an implausible collapse from Coppa Italia finalists Lazio, which would offer fresh opportunities to climb higher in any case) would be a spot in the Europa League’s third qualifying round.To frame that another way: the winners of this race can look forward to having their holidays shortened for a season that begins in July. Might players prefer to lose now than endure such a dubious reward? It is a scandalous suggestion, but one that found its way into several Monday papers as reporters strived to comprehend Inter’s 5-4 defeat at Fiorentina, and Milan’s 2-1 loss at home to Empoli.The former result might not seem so shocking at a glance. Fiorentina, despite indifferent http://www.officialbuckstore.com/Chris_Copeland_Jersey form, have still only lost one league game this season at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. And yet it was the manner of this defeat, rather than the fact of it, that left Inter’s supporters bewildered.With an hour gone, they were 2-1 up and pulling out the party tricks. By the 79th, they trailed 5-2. Fiorentina deserve credit for the way they shifted through the gears – Borja Valero and Matías Vecino exploiting the gaps between Inter’s midfield lines and Khouma Babacar taking the first of his two goals especially coolly. All, though, were enabled by opponents whose defensive inattentiveness has become an institutional trait.Stefano Pioli will carry the can for this collapse, and was reported by some outlets to have attempted to resign afterward. Inter have taken only two points from their past five games, and he looked every bit the defeated man as he reflected that they had “stopped being a team”.He will be replaced in the summer, but Inter’s capacity for capitulation has now transcended a multitude of different managers, players and ownership groups in the past half-decade. Even the shortest attention spans cannot have forgotten how this club sat top at Christmas last season under Roberto Mancini, yet finished Arron Afflalo Womens Jersey 13 points off a Champions League place.What will it take to fix this team? The Chinese owners hope substantial investment in a new manager and squad upgrades will do the trick. And certainly if they were to land one of their two mooted top targets – Diego Simeone or Antonio Conte – that would represent a major coup. But the fact remains that this squad ought to be capable of so much more already.Only Juventus, in Serie A, can boast markedly superior talent. On Saturday, Inter started with Mauro Icardi up front, supported by Ivan Perisic, João Mário and Antonio Candreva. The former has scored 24 league goals this season, including a hat-trick here, while the latter trio are all top-tier internationals.In central midfield were Geoffrey Kondogbia – now oft-derided but perceived as one of Europe’s hottest prospects when he signed from Monaco two years ago – and the similarly potent Roberto Gagliardini. Ever Banega was an unused sub.Even in defence, the weakest point of this team, Inter were able to field Gary Medel and Miranda – capped 96 and 39 times by Chile and Brazil, respectively. That partnership lacks pace, a truth ruthlessly exposed at times by Fiorentina, but they are also backed up by one of Serie A’s better goalkeepers in Samir Handanovic – who even saved a penalty this weekend.It is a different story at Milan, who remain two points ahead of Inter despite thinner resources. Injuries have deprived them of Giacomo Bonaventura and Riccardo Montolivo in midfield, but defeat by Empoli highlighted the mediocrity of their replacements. José Sosa, Matías Fernández and http://www.officialbasketballkingstore.com/Ben_Mclemore_Jersey Mario Pasalic were outshone almost single-handedly by the visitors’ No10, Omar El Kaddouri, a player who could not buy a start during his past season and a half at Napoli.Too often, the Rossoneri have relied on the ruthlessness of Carlos Bacca up front to win them games without playing all that well. Vincenzo Montella’s decision to rest him against Empoli backfired, with Milan mustering 28 shots but only once beating Lukasz Skorupski.transfer market. Quite what their financial potential looks like In any case, both Milan and Inter could take a lesson from the teams immediately above them. Atalanta lost 7-1 to the Nerazzurri in March, but that is the only defeat they have suffered in 13 games. They beat Bologna 3-2 this weekend, strengthening their grip on fifth – and with it, automatic Europa League qualification – despite having a wage budget less than one-quarter the size of Inter’s.Even Lazio, one point ahead in fourth after their 6-2 rout of Palermo, have been operating on far more modest resources than either of the Milan sides. Money, it turns out, is not the only necessary building block for success.Perhaps there is some element of motivation at play. Atalanta, at least, are genuinely enthused by the Dennis Schroder Womens Jersey prospect of Europa League qualification, unsurprisingly for a club whose last foray into continental competition came in the now defunct Anglo-Italian Cup.The Milanese malaise, though, runs deeper than this. They might be underwhelmed by the prize they see on offer this May. But if they have failed to put themselves in contention for greater rewards, it is only because they were tripping over themselves long before the finish line came into view. Mattia De Sciglio’s flirtations with Juventus have long cost him the affections of a section of Milan’s fanbase, and he was jeered throughout a poor performance against Empoli. Far more troubling, though, was what went on as he tried to leave San Siro afterwards. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, his car was set upon by an angry fan, leading first his father and then mother to exit the vehicle in an attempt to calm this individual. Instead, the situation is reported to have escalated, with De Sciglio’s mother receiving a shove and a bottle of beer being thrown against the car. The situation was broken up by onlookers but police were required to get the player and his family back into the stadium garage as others arrived and threatened to escalate the situation.
