West Indies captain Jason Holder said increased patience with the ball and greater fight with the bat were the keys to his side's chances of an improved showing in the second Test against England at Headingley. West Indies' struggle in the format has been evident as they managed just two wins in the last 18 games while England enjoy six wins out of the last eight Tests at home.
Wisconsin led the nation in scoring defense in 2015 by allowing 13.7 points per game, and the Badgers ranked fourth previous year with 15.6 points per game. The one bit of bad news for Alabama? This is the second straight year that Alabama has been given the No. 1 ranking in the AP poll. There is more attention than usual on FSU's and Alabama's preseason poll position because the teams are meeting in a high-profile neutral-site game on Saturday, Sept.
Bell was asked by a social media user when he would return to the Steelers, Bell responded "9-1-17". Last season, Bell totaled 1,884 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns in just 12 games because of suspensions and injuries. The franchise tender offered Bell will guarantee him $12.1 million for the upcoming season. Bell hasn't yet reported to training camp as he's sought a long-term contract with the Steelers, but it appears as though his holdout is nearing an end.
Froome, three-time Vuelta victor Alberto Contador and Colombian Esteban Chaves finished in the same group, more than four minutes behind stage victor Alexey Lutsenko but ahead of their general classification rivals. After a commendable day out ahead, the two leaders were reeled in with 8km remaining - but not before Rubio put in a little dig to distance Rossetto (although the Frenchman managed to turn the tables before the pack closed in).
If you have your team, your squad, it will be easier for me to get a message across. No surprise that last season we saw success on the pitch as Rafa Benitez was backed in the transfer market last summer (and made a £40m profit) and success happened on the pitch, as Ashley took a back seat.
Even though Smith wasn't taken in the top 5 of the draft, many believe that he could be one of the most talented players in the draft class. Smith was not only projected to be rookie of the year, but was also named most athletic. While Kuzma's vote feels like the ultimate case of Summer League overreaction, we'll focus on the mere fact that Fultz - who was, once again, the overwhelming favorite atop most draft boards - continues to be viewed as a secondary talent.
