especially the last couple weeks from miao1234's blog

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Lucas Vazquez Jersey . -- Tajh Boyd sent Sammy Watkins out wide to the right, and saw freshman Tim Harris sliding over in man-to-man coverage. Clemson faced a third-and-15 from its 4 yard-line, a situation that usually calls for a more conservative play call, but Boyd saw the home run potential of the matchup and went for it. Moments later, Watkins was easing into the end zone after a 96-yard touchdown catch that gave the ninth-ranked Tigers a 42-7 lead against Virginia, and Boyd and Watkins were done for the night in what became a 59-10 victory on Saturday. "When theyre out there," Boyd said of Watkins and fellow speedy receiver Martavius Bryant, "youve just got to throw your arm out, honestly, and theyll run and go get it." The Tigers did plenty of that in what Boyd and coach Dabo Swinney called their most complete performance of the season. It came two weeks after their worst, a 51-14 loss to No. 3 Florida State, and marked the start of a big finish, Boyd said. "November is when we want to play our best football," Boyd said. "Hopefully we put a stamp on it today and were just going to try to take off from here." The Hampton, Va., native played one half and one series, and became the Atlantic Coast Conferences career leader in touchdown-making with a 33-yard pass to Watkins to start the scoring for the Tigers (8-1, 6-1 ACC). It broke a tie at 112 TDs with North Carolina States Philip Rivers. Boyd later added TD throws of 10 yards to Roderick McDowell and the 96 yarder, the longest completion of his career, and the longest reception of Watkins career. Boyd also scored on a 1-yard run. "Tremendous performance by that young man," Swinney said. Virginia (2-7, 0-5) lost its sixth in a row and 15th in its last 19 tries. It also suffered its second 59-10 loss at home this season, having lost by the same score against No. 2 Oregon in the second week of the season. "We have no choice but to keep our confidence up," linebacker Henry Coley said after the Cavaliers were also eliminated from bowl contention for the second season in a row. "There are still three more games to play." Boyd finished 24 of 29 for 377 yards. Hes now been in on 116 career touchdowns, with 93 through the air and 23 running. Hes also 4-0 against teams from his home state, having won three prior meetings against Virginia Tech. Watkins caught eight passes for 169 yards and two scores. It was his sixth 100-yard game this season. The Tigers wasted little time asserting their dominance, taking the opening kickoff and driving 75 yards in six plays and taking just 1:27 off the clock. Boyd hit Watkins three times, the last for 33 yards. Virginia pulled even after an exchange of punts, Watford running it in from the 6 to cap a 54-yard drive, but the Tigers responded immediately with another 6-play, 75-yard march to C.J. Davidsons 2-yard run. Boyd hit Roderick McDowell for 27 yards on a third-and-4 play and hit Bryant for 37 yards on the next play. Anthony Harris sixth interception of the season ended a Tigers drive deep in Virginia territory, and Clemson punted twice and was stopped on fourth down on its next three possessions, but the Cavaliers could do nothing offensively. When Watford overthrew Darius Jennings late in the half and Jayron Kearse intercepted and returned it 37 yards to the Virginia 33, the Tigers began a late scoring frenzy. Boyds screen pass to McDowell made it 21-7, and when Kearse stripped the ball from Khalek Shepherd on the ensuing series, DeShawn Williams recovered at midfield. Five plays later, McDowell ran into the line on third-and-1, broke quickly into the clear and went 25 yards for a touchdown that made it 28-7. Boyd followed another three-and-out for Virginia by carving the defence up in a crisp eight-play, 86-yard drive. He was 6 for 6 on the drive for 84 yards, then ran it the final yard 0:13 before halftime. "Probably our best drive of the year," Boyd said, "just because we were just out there playing, not really thinking." Filipe Luis Atletico Madrid Jersey . The NBA began to issue punishments last season for flopping, the art of exaggerating contact to deceive referees into calling a foul, but only retroactively. If a player is determined to have flopped after a postgame review, he is given a warning for the first offence and a $5,000 fine for the second. Atletico Madrid Jersey . Zimmerman hit a 2-0 pitch off Mike Fiers (0-1) over the wall in left field to score Adam LaRoche for the Nationals fourth consecutive win. Tyler Clippard (5-2) pitched a scoreless 15th for the win. MILWAUKEE -- For Ryan Braun, winning an appeal of a 50-game suspension was only his first step toward redemption. Now the Milwaukee Brewers slugger is out to show fans that he can shake off what became a tumultuous off-season after a failed drug test that tarnished his reputation, and regain the form that made him the NLs MVP last season. Speaking Friday before the Brewers opener against the St. Louis Cardinals, Braun said hes looking forward to the chance to prove he can handle what transpired. "Of course," Braun said. "Its not so much about proving anybody wrong as it much as it is proving the people who all believed in me and supported me right. So Im definitely excited. Very motivated." Fans gave Braun a rousing ovation in pregame introductions and were even louder during his first few trips to the plate, cheering and chanting "M-V-P!" The support didnt necessarily help him at the plate, as Braun went 0 for 5 -- including a flyout to end the game -- and the Brewers lost 11-5. ""Braun hit a couple balls hard, so you dont discount that," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "He looks like his timing is pretty good. Theyve got guys that are going to hit the ball." After helping power the Brewers to the NL championship series and winning the leagues MVP award, Brauns achievements came under suspicion when ESPN reported that he failed a drug test with a high testosterone level. Braun went on to win his appeal and avoid a 50-game suspension. Then he made his case to the fans upon his arrival in spring training, saying that chain of custody issues with his urine sample cast doubt on the validity of the test. That didnt end the controversy; baseball officials were unhappy with the arbitrators decision, and a urine sample collector issued a statement saying he followed proper protocols and that there was no evidence of tampering. Braun also has hinted that theres more to the story than hes letting on, refusing to share those details. And Braun struggled for much of spring training. But with the regular season set to start, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke likes what he has seen and heard from Brauun.Toni Kroos Real Madrid Jersey. "Right now, hes in a really good place," Roenicke said. "First couple weeks of spring? A little difficult. Hes back to the guy he was, I saw last year. Hes very confident. He knows he had a tough off-season mentally, and I think hes in a place right now where his focus is on having another repeat year and even better -- which is hard to believe, but thats the way he talks. And its hard to say that he wouldnt." But Roenicke acknowledged that Braun is likely to face adversity from opposing fans when he goes on the road. "I think therell be challenges," Roenicke said. "I think its just not going to be comfortable going to some different places. But I dont think with his personality, I dont think thats going to affect the way that he goes about his job. It may not be quite as fun and relaxing as he usually is and when he goes to different cities and opposing (fans) that for whatever reason are going to get on him. What Ive seen, especially the last couple weeks, theres not any effects of what I thought ... could be there mentally with him. And so he really is in a good place now." Braun has the support of Brewers principal owner Mark Attanasio. "Ill be giving him a standing ovation," Attanasio said before the game. "I hope others will stand and cheer for him. Its obviously huge for our club. Ryan does so many things well. Obviously, we really didnt want to talk about it, but it would have been a big loss to have him out for 50 games." Now that hes able to play a full season, Braun thinks the Brewers can contend again. Even without Prince Fielder, who signed a free agent deal with Detroit in the off-season, Braun said this years team is the best he has been a part of. "As an opposing pitcher, when you look at a lineup and you see the name Prince Fielder, its intimidating," Braun said. "You know thats a guy that can hit a home run at any point, that alters the way you approach the hitters before him and the hitters after him. So you dont replace him with a single guy, but I think collectively, as a unit, were honestly better than we were last year." Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
