SEATTLE -- Jake Browning has thrown for 581 yards and eight touchdowns in Washingtons first two games.Though Browning as yet to play in a fourth quarter in No. 8 Washingtons victories against lesser opponents Rutgers and Idaho, coach Chris Petersen believes he has even more to offer with a little more refinement.Browning matched Washingtons school record with five touchdown passes -- two each to Dante Pettis and John Ross -- and finished with 294 yards in the No. 8 Huskies 59-14 romp over Idaho on Saturday.Browning has helped Washington (2-0) to its highest ranking since 2001.Hes done a real nice job, head coach Chris Petersen said of Browning. Hes completing a lot of passes. Hes keeping his eyes downfield. Hes buying time, all those things that good quarterbacks do.After throwing for 287 yards and three touchdowns last week against Rutgers, Browning was nearly flawless against Idaho. He completed 23 of 28 passes for 294 yards and deferred to backup K.J. Carta-Samuels after the opening drive of the third quarter following his fifth touchdown pass of the day, an 8-yard strike to Ross that gave Washington a 42-0 lead.While the production has been stellar, its the process that will yield the consistency needed when conference play begins. Thats where Petersen feels there is still room to grow.I think the thing that is interesting is I still think there is some things were cleaning up with him, Petersen said. When you go back, what I really want to look at is did he need to escape? Did he have things he could have got the ball out? I know on one early on -- I think he threw a touchdown -- I think he didnt need to make it so spectacular.Against Idaho, it was still more than enough.Following a fumble on the opening kickoff by Lloyd Hightower that was recovered by Washington, Browning threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Pettis on his first attempt of the game. He completed 13 consecutive passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns in the second quarter as the Huskies built a 35-0 halftime advantage.We didnt really do anything crazy, Browning said. Just go in, run our stuff and execute well.Browning joined Keith Price (2012), Jake Locker (2010) and Chris Rowland (1973) as the only Huskies to throw five touchdown passes in a game.The Vandals (1-1) kept it in reach in the first quarter. Kaden Elliss forced a fumble on a sack of Browning to give Idaho the ball in Washington territory. But after driving into the red zone, Jacob Sannon fumbled at the 1 after a hit from Jojo McIntosh, and Azeem Victor recovered to keep Idaho out of the end zone.We got whooped, Idaho coach Paul Petrino said. We got whooped but I thought our guys stayed fighting in the second half.Washington scored 35 straight points afterward before the Vandals finally got on the board with a 20-yard pass from Matt Linehan to Trent Cowan in the third quarter.THE TAKEAWAYIdaho: Idaho lost its road opener against Pac-12 foe USC 59-9 in 2015. The Vandals foray against Pac-12 opposition wasnt much better. The Vandals forced just six incompletions in 33 pass attempts by Washington. Theyll face an even more pass-happy opponent in Washington State next week.Washington: The Huskies defense and passing attack are every bit that of a Top 10 team. However, the rushing attack has struggled in the first two weeks. Myles Gaskin has rushed for just 124 yards through two games after being thought of as a fringe Heisman Trophy candidate before the season.UP NEXTIdaho: The Vandals will face a second straight Pac-12 foe in Washington State. They will make the short eight-mile trip to Martin Stadium for their first meeting in three years.Washington: The Huskies host FCS Portland State in their final test before the start of Pac-12 play.POLL IMPLICATIONSWashington will remain in the Top 10 this week after the convincing victory and is likely to stay there into the start of Pac-12 play with another non-conference warmup against FCS Portland State next week.LAST WORDThey felt like it, Petrino said about Washingtons No. 8 ranking. The hitting, hearing the hitting, defensively they definitely felt like it. Offensively, their speed is like it. So I wouldnt be surprised if theyre there at the end of the year, thats for sure.

Its that time in the football season when fans ask, Whatever happened to...?Whether because of injury, getting keyed on or avoided by the opponent, or just plain bad luck, some Big Ten players havent been able to build on or repeat the big seasons they had in 2015.Heres a look at some of them:OFFENSE- Illinois RB KeShawn Vaughn rushed for a team-high 723 yards with six touchdowns and was projected to be the featured back this season. He lost his job in the fourth game. Since then hes had a total of 11 carries while Reggie Corbin and Kendrick Foster have gotten most of the work.- Illinois QB Wes Lunt started all 12 games last season and threw for 250 yards five times, and he looked like a lock to do the same under first-year coach Lovie Smith. He hurt his back against Purdue on Oct. 8 and hasnt played since, though he practiced in full pads this week.- Indiana WR Simmie Cobbs was suspended for the opener and sustained a season-ending ankle injury on the first play of the second game. Last year, he caught just under five balls a game and was the Big Tens third-leading receiver with 80 yards a game.- Nebraska WR Jordan Westerkamps numbers were running well behind last season even before a back injury kept him out of the last two games: 13 catches through five games compared with 27 in 2015.- Rutgers QB Chris Laviano started 18 straight games before getting benched in the second half against Illinois two weeks ago. He completed only 48 percent of his passes in seven games. Giovanni Rescigno got the start in the narrow loss at Minnesota last week, and coach Chris Ash indicated Rescigno will be the guy the rest of the way.DEFENSE- Iowa CB Desmond King won the Jim Thorpe Award last year with eight interceptions. Hes still the Big Tens best cover man. QBs, smartly, are staying away from him. Hes intercepted just one pass and ran it back for a touchdown.- Michigan State DL Malik McDowell has been banged up, missed half a game for a targeting penalty and has moved from tackle to end. It took until the seventh game for him to record his first sack.- Minnesota LB Cody Poock was second on the team with 99 tackles in 2015. Hes missed two games this because of injuries but still has only 18 tackles, seven coming in one game.- Ohio State MLB Raekwon McMillan was by far his teams top tackler last season, with nine per game. His average has dropped to six, but thats largely because opponents arent running up the middle as much.- Purdue LB Andy James Garcia has just nine tackles in six games after ranking third on the team with 63. Garcias role decreased because the Boilermarkers played a lot of nickel defense the first five games. But even now that the defense is playing more 4-3, Garcia has been the odd man out.SPECIAL TEAMS- Indiana K Griffin Oakes was Big Ten kicker of the year after making 24 of 29 field goals, including 6 of 8 from 40 yards or longer. He opened this season with misses on 4 of his first 9 attempts. Hes made 5 of his last 6, though, with the miss coming from 53 yards.- Maryland KR/PR William Likely, one of the nations most electrifying players in 2015, is out for the season after tearing his ACL two weeks ago. His production had been nowhere near as prodigious. His punt return average was just 3.3 yards; last year it was 18.2 with two touchdowns. As a kick returner, he had been mostly held in check aside from a 64-yarder.---More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Blue Tint Pas Cher.

SEATTLE -- The last time Seattle left-hander Wade LeBlanc started a game, teammate Felix Hernandez was on the disabled list, fellow left-hander Wade Miley was a part of the Mariners rotation, and the bullpen included Mike Montgomery, Joaquin Benoit and Nathan Karns.Things certainly have changed in Seattle over the past two weeks.Due to a flurry of moves leading up to the trade deadline, LeBlanc is back in the rotation and scheduled to start Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox. It will mark his first action since July 23, his first start since July 18 and only his third appearance since the All-Star break.Injuries to the rotation led to the Mariners dealing for LeBlanc in June. He was pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays Triple-A affiliate after spending the 2015 season in Japan, yet Seattle was so desperate that he was immediately added to the Mariners rotation -- only to become a welcome addition while throwing solid outings over his first two starts.The return of Hernandez left LeBlanc in limbo. However, recent deals that included starter Miley and part-time starter Montgomery left the Mariners pretty thin in terms of starters -- so LeBlanc (1-0, 4.26 ERA) is back in the rotation as of Tuesday.He is one of several journeymen who will get the call for the Mariners (52-52) as they finish off a lost season. First-year general manager Jerry Dipoto refuses to use those terms, and he doesnt see the recent moves as a selling-off of a team out of contention, but the transactions spoke volumes about where the Mariners are after leading the American League West for much of April and May.We had a lot of oars in the water, Dipoto said before the Mariners 2-1 loss to Boston on Monday, but obviously nothing else came to fruition after we finished the Miley-(Ariel) Miranda deal (on Sunday). It was not for lack off trying to be creative and trying to get some things done.dddddddddddd.The Red Sox (58-46) were only slightly more active as they pursue the AL East title. They are tied with Toronto, a game behind the Baltimore Orioles, after a dramatic win Monday. Another ninth-inning home run, this one by Mookie Betts, finished off another comeback victory.Youve got to play 27 outs to beat us, Betts said. Youre starting to see that more and more now.Boston added veteran southpaw Fernando Abad to its bullpen in a Monday trade, and the former Minnesota Twin should be in uniform and ready to make his Red Sox debut Tuesday. It could also be the major league debut for outfield prospect Andrew Benintendi, who was called up from Triple-A after Mondays win. Manager John Farrell said the left-handed-hitting Benintendi probably wont be in the lineup against southpaw LeBlanc on Tuesday but is likely to start Wednesday night.Hes ready, Farrell said. Were going to get a first-hand look very soon.Boston lefty David Price, who already beat the Mariners once this season, is scheduled to start Tuesday. Price (9-7, 4.26 ERA) allowed one run on six hits over eight innings during a 2-1 victory over Seattle on June 19. In six career starts against the Mariners, Price is 3-1 with a 2.25 ERA.LeBlancs only career appearance against the Red Sox came in 2011, when he gave up three runs in three innings during a no-decision for the San Diego Padres.Seattle might debut a new closer, as veteran Steve Cishek blew a save Sunday night and gave up the game-winning homer Monday. Manager Scott Servais said after Mondays loss that the Mariners would try to get Cishek in some better spots without the game on the line. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '

CHICAGO -- Detroit Tigers left-hander Matt Boyd will look to maintain his recent success when he takes the mound against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.Boyd, 25, has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his past nine starts. He is 5-0 with a 2.55 ERA since July 9, which has improved his season record to 5-2 with a 4.00 ERA.Boyds impressive second half of the season has mirrored that of Detroit (75-62). The Tigers remain tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the second American League wild-card playoff spot after their 5-3, 11-inning win against the White Sox on Monday afternoon.Detroit has won six of its past seven games and 11 of its past 14.I like where were at, Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander said. I like the grit that this team has late in the season. Really, this last week or so, (weve had) a never-say-die attitude. Weve won a bunch of games where we were down, some games that we were probably losing early on in the season.Nows the right time to get hot. This is what we work so hard for.Meanwhile, the reality of another disappointing season is setting in for Chicago (65-72). The White Sox dropped to 5-12 against Detroit after the Monday loss, and they have posted a dismal 13-32 record against opponents from the AL Central since May 23.I can tell you, top to bottom, no ones happy about it, White Sox left-hander Chris Sale said. It falls on us, mostly. You just have to look at yourself in the mirror and say, What have we got to do to change it?We have to find a way to be better nextt year.dddddddddddd Hold your head up high, but weve got to change something.One thing the White Sox hope to maintain is their good work against Boyd. The second-year pitcher has faced Chicago three times this year and has no decisions despite an ugly 6.39 ERA.Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is scheduled to return from the 15-day disabled list to start for Chicago. The 32-year-old veteran has been sidelined since Aug. 12 because of a strained right groin.Gonzalez is 2-6 with a 4.05 ERA in 19 games (18 starts) this season. During his career, Tigers hitters have battered him for 30 earned runs on 49 hits in 30 innings. He is 1-4 with a 9.00 ERA in eight games (six starts) against Detroit.Before his groin injury, Gonzalez was pitching well. He recorded seven consecutive quality starts from July 1 to Aug. 5 and posted a 2.76 ERA (14 earned runs in 45 2/3 innings) during that span.Gonzalez faces a difficult assignment against a Tigers team filled with hot hitters.Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with two home runs in the series opener to improve his batting average to .316 with 31 home runs and 87 RBI. Justin Upton is also hit, as he is batting .339 (19-for-56) with four doubles, eight home runs and 21 RBI in his past 15 games.Honestly, Ive been on time a lot more, Upton said. Ive been giving myself a better opportunity to see the ball and put good swings on it. Thats what Ive done. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '

Each week of the NFL campaign, we sift through the deeper options at each position with an eye toward identifying streaming fantasy commodities with valuable matchups to consider.Do you need replacement options for this heavy bye week? We have some choice names to consider for those seeking widely available options at each position.QuarterbackRyan Fitzpatrick, New York JetsAs bad as he played in the first half against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8, Fitzpatrick is the best option among quarterbacks who are owned in 20 percent or less of ESPN.com leagues. He draws a matchup against the Miami Dolphins, a team Fitzpatrick has excelled against recently. Last season, Fitzpatrick averaged 247.5 passing yards and 2.5 touchdowns per game against the Dolphins. Expecting Fitzpatrick to hit that mark again this week is completely reasonable, as the Dolphins have allowed 232 passing yards per game, despite playing two of their games against backup quarterbacks. -- K.D. Josh McCown, Cleveland BrownsIn his two starts this season, McCown has averaged 41 attempts for 300.5 yards per game with two touchdowns in each outing. The Cowboys, meanwhile, rate last in the NFL at pressuring opposing passers, as they are creating a hit, hurry or sack on just 20.3 percent of dropbacks. The Cowboys also dont blitz very often, with the fifth-lowest rate (18.2 percent of opposing dropbacks) in the league. As home underdogs against a Dallas offense that ranks second in the league in points per drive, we could again see McCown prove pass-happy with some potential for soft fantasy points into the second half. -- J.M.Running backTim Hightower, New Orleans SaintsAfter Mark Ingram was benched Sunday for a continued fumbling problem, recommending Hightower becomes a no-brainer. In relief of Ingram, Hightower ran for 102 yards against the Seattle Seahawks. On Sunday, Hightowers Saints face the San Francisco 49ers,?the only team in the NFL that permits more than 5 yards per carry. Its safe to project 10 or more carries for Hightower this week, and another fumble by Ingram could lead to a significantly expanded role. Remember that Hightower was a savior last season, when Ingram went down with an injury during the fantasy playoffs, so it should be obvious why you should grab him immediately. -- K.D.C.J. Prosise, Seattle SeahawksHyped throughout the summer as a potential fantasy sleeper, Prosise might just be waking up after missing much of the season with a broken hand suffered in Week 1. The Notre Dame product led Seattle with 80 yards receiving and 103 yards from scrimmage in Week 8. A gifted receiving talent, Prosise ranked third among draft-eligible tailbacks in yards per route run in college last season, per College Football Focus. While Christine Michael is expected to dominate early downs, we could see Prosise, who has significantly increased his snap rate in each of the past two games, play a sizable role in the short passing game, as Russell Wilson looks to evade a Buffalo front that ranks second in the league in pressuring opposing passers. Best served for streaming usage in PPR formats, Prosise is a widely available asset to consider during a challenging week at the position. -- J.M.Wide receiverBrian Quick, Los Angeles RamsA.J. Green, Mike Evans, Cole Beasley and Quick are the only players in the NFL with at least 50 receiving yards in every game their teams have played since Week 3. The first three are owned in almost every league. Quicks ownership is less than 6 percent. Coming off their bye, Quicks Rams will host the Carolina Panthers, who, despite their reputation, rank dead last in receiving yardage permitted per game this season. Quick is a gift off the waiver wire; take advantage of it. -- K.D.Kendall Wright, Tennessee TitansI dont love the fact that Wright has played on just 38.1 percent of the teams offensive snaps in the five games hes played this season. However, I admire that Wright has led the team in target share over the past three weeks, with 22.2 percent of Marcus Mariotas attempts the past three games. In two of the past three, Wright has delivered at least 15 fantasy points in standard leagues and enjoyed a healthy rate of 13.1 air yards per target. With a budding rapport developing with Mariota and the San Diego secondary depleted by injury, Wright is a fine streaming candidate to consider in a game that has a healthy implied point total, per the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. -- J.M.Tight endVirgil Green, Denver BroncosAfter touting Houstons C.J. Fiedorowicz in Week 8, my recommendation pivots to the Broncos tight end. Green finally performed at a suitable level to be considered for fantasy purposes when he gained 55 yards on four catches against the San Diego Chargers. Because the Broncos draw the Raiders this week, its safe to expect plenty of receiving yards for all Broncos receivers -- including Green -- as Oakland has allowed the sixth-most receiving yards in the league. -- K.D.Austin Hooper, Atlanta FalconsJacob Tamme has been ruled out for Thursdays tilt with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that just ceded more than 500 passing yards to the Raiders in Week 8. Hooper is set to start for the leagues top offense; Atlanta leads the league in points per drive. Tamme has consumed 11.4 percent of Ryans attempts this season, while Hooper has accounted for 4 percent. With a real shot at consolidating this share and with the Bucs yielding 55.8 yards per game to tight ends, Hooper is an under-the-radar asset during a heavy bye at the position. -- J.M.D/STDallas CowboysDefensive teams facing the Browns have scored six or more points in seven of the nine games the Browns have played. The Cowboys defense has scored six or more points in three of the past four games. Together, those two facts make the Cowboys a suitable streaming option from the deepest part of the waiver wire. Dont overthink things -- play the best matchup available, and this is it. -- K.D.New York GiantsThe Eagles offense is proving particularly conservative of late; Carson Wentz is 33rd out of 34 qualifying passers, with just 4.65 yards per dropback since the start of Week 6. Meanwhile, the rookie has been sacked on 7.8 percent of his dropbacks with Lane Johnson over the past three games, sixth-highest in the league. The Giants, for their part, have produced pressure on 28.4 percent of opposing dropbacks, eighth in the NFL this season. Coming off their bye, this D/ST should be widely available in most fantasy formats, while a seemingly inviting division matchup is next. -- J.M.Individual defensive playersLinebackerMark Barron, Los Angeles RamsWe often see talented IDP players cut loose during the bye week, as most owners dont want to tie up their depth spots with defensive assets. Barron is floating in nearly 75 percent of ESPN leagues and is sixth among linebackers with 65.6 snaps per game. Such steady exposure supports a high floor for tackles each week. -- J.M.Defensive backKeanu Neal, Atlanta FalconsWith prolific explosion metrics -- the Florida product rates in the 96th percentile in the broad jump among positional prospects since 1999, per MockDraftable -- and a close physical comparison to Arizonas Deone Bucannon, Neal is a hard-hitting safety who ranks third among defensive backs in tackles per game this season. Since he assumed regular snaps in Week 4, Neal is second only to the Giants Landon Collins among defensive backs, with nine tackles per game. If Neal is already owned in your league, Tampas Bradley McDougald is available in more than 80 percent of ESPN leagues and is sixth in tackles per game among defensive backs over the past month. -- J.M.Defensive lineVic Beasley Jr., Atlanta FalconsBeasley leads the league in sacks?since Week 5, with 6.5 in his past four outings. With 17 tackles over this span, Beasley is a defensive lineman with a high fantasy floor. For another option, I still find Phillys Brandon Graham dramatically undervalued, as hes available in nearly 80 percent of ESPN leagues and leads all 4-3 defensive ends with 28 pressures, despite having already had his bye. -- J.M. Stitched China Jerseys.C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday. China Jerseys 2022. Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch.

Malik Morgan added 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds, Cameron Reynolds chipped in 13 points, and Colin Slater had 12 for Tulane (1-1).Neither team ccould dominate in the first half.dddddddddddd Southeastern tied it at 55 when George Brock hit a jumper with 14:37 left in the final period.

George Groves opponent Eduard Gutknecht has undergone surgery after falling ill after their fight last night.Groves beat the 34-year-old super-middleweight by unanimous decision at Wembleys SSE Arena, following which Gutknecht was taken to hospital.Gutknecht is sedated and will continue to be monitored in the coming days, according to the British Boxing Board of Control.Gutknecht took significant punishment throughout the one-sided fight before Groves, 28, was declared a 119-109, 119-109 and 119-110 winner on the three judges scorecards to remain in contention for an expected fourth shot at a world title in 2017.Concerns almost immediately turned to Gutknecht, however, when reports of his condition emerged.He was already clearly losing the fight against the heavy-handed Groves when a cut opened up around his swollen left eye in the ninth round, further reducing his ability to defend himself.He impressed in surviving until the final bell despite Groves consistent aggression and did not appear distressed while the scorecards were announced.It was afterwards in his changing room when his condition declined, leading to him requiring medical attention and swiftly being taken away in an ambulance.According to the BBBofC, it was after that point that Gutknecht -- born in Kazakhstan but who fights out of Germany -- was operated on.At the same venue in March, English middleweight Nick Blackwell collapsed at the end of his stoppage defeat by Chris Eubank Jnr. He suffered bleeding on his skull and was treated at St Marys hospital in Paddington where he eventually recovered, despite having to retire.More recently in September, Scottish welterweight Mike Towell died just 25 hours after losing to Dale Evans in Glasgow. He had suffered severe bleeding and swelling to his brain.Speaking before Gutknecht was taken ill, Groves told Channel 5: I am very happy with how I fought, it went exactly to plan. I set a great tempo and busted him up badly. I am surprised he made it to the bell -- Gutknecht is a tough character.We want real, big, proper fights. There was no world title on the line, but we knew Gutknecht was going to give me a tough fight.After reports of Gutknechts condition emerged, Groves cancelled plans to discuss his performance at a post-fight press conference, considering it inappropriate.Victory is expected to earn him a shot at the vacant WBA super-middleweight title next year.

The Getting Over series, written by KC Joyner, aims to detail the unofficial psychological rules that have developed in the world of pro wrestling over the past 100 years.Rule No. 1:?Its all about the moneyRule No. 2:?Fans will hate a heel more if he can make them respect himRule No. 3: A babyface should be billed as a believable underdogAccording to Dave Meltzers superb book Tributes, in the early 1970s, the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) -- the premier pro wrestling organization in the United States at the time -- considered making Fritz Von Erich its world heavyweight champion.There are a lot of reasons this move could have worked. Von Erich was running an NWA-affiliated territory at the time, and he was known as a legitimately tough man. This would theoretically allow some piece of mind, as the Alliance knew its belt would be protected from any double crosses if he were champion. Von Erich had worked many years as a heel, so he was highly adept at calling matches, which allowed him to carry lesser talents he went up against and have great matches with other top names.In Tributes, Meltzer points out that the NWA could get around its rule of not having a gimmick wrestler as champion by having Von Erich drop his stage name and instead go by his real name of Jack Adkisson -- something he did for a time in the late 1960s in Texas.For all those positives, one of the issues in making Von Erich the champion is that he simply wouldnt be a believable enough underdog on his way to winning the title. When it comes to telling a compelling story in wrestling, you cant underestimate the importance of Rule No. 3.Why it worksDavid vs. Goliath. Rocky vs. Apollo Creed. Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader. All of these are incredibly popular stories in which a hero faced seemingly insurmountable odds and fought back and overcame the odds to achieve victory. All of them are tremendously popular because of how compelling a story the right kind of underdog can tell.Legendary manager Jim Cornette said promoter Jerry Jarrett taught him that this mindset is ingrained into people. Jarrett said that if a person sees a fight between a small guy and a big guy, his or her natural instinct is to pull for the smaller guy to win. We want to see the babyface in peril, but we want to see that person fight hard and overcome the villain in his or her way.Cant be too bigA crowd typically doesnt want to see Goliath beat up David.That definitely would have been the perception, based on a look at Von Erich and many of the wrestlers he would have faced in that era. He was billed at 6-foot-4 and 275 pounds. For comparisons sake, consider that the greatest world champions of Von Erichs era -- a group including Lou Thesz, Buddy Rogers, Dory Funk Jr. and Jack Brisco -- all ranged from 5-foot-11 to 6-foot-2 and between 216 and 240 pounds.This size worked because the NWA world champion had to travel around the globe to face all the local territory champions. Because those local champs could be babyfaces or heels, the world champion had to be able to work a match as a babyface or heel to counter whomever he was facing. He thus had to have a frame that would allow the crowd to believe either story, depending on who was facing whom.That would have been a big problem for Von Erich for reasons beyond his size, as he also spent years convincingly delivering his character in a menacing way and built a reputation as one of the biggest heels in the business.Gary Hart, who worked as a manager and booker for Von Erich, once likened Von Erich to famed tough guy Johnny Valentine, a bully heel known for his highly physical matches. Given all these factors, it would have been difficult for fans to imagine Von Erich as a babyface in peril, and therefore, it was a tough sell for fans to believe him in that kind of role as the holder of the NWA championship.Too small doesnt work, eitherDanny Hodge is arguably the greatest wrestler in NCAA history. Hodge was a three-time undefeated national champion who set the NCAA career record for pin percentage (78.3 percent), never allowed a single takedown against him in his career and has the amateur wrestling equivalent of the Heisman Trophy named after him. He was the first wrestler to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated, won AAU and Golden Gloves national boxing tournaments and had a grip so powerful that he could break apples with his bare hands -- a feat he could still pull off late into his 70s.Once Hodge made the transition to the pro wrestling ranks, given his fame and legitimate fighting skill, it would have been easy to sell him as a heavyweight wrestling champion, except for one problem. He was only 6 feet tall, and he weighed 185 pounds. Even though he would have likely won a large majority of shoot matches (legitimate fights) against bigger foes, the size differential made it too unbelievable a storyline to make him the champ.It was even difficult to put him into matches against the champ. Larry Matysik, a wrestling historian who once worked as NWA president Sam Muchnicks right-hand man, said Muchnick once considered having an NWA title match between Hodge and Jack Brisco (himself a former NCAA wrestling champion) but decided against it.The main reason for this decision was Muchnick couldnt find an in-ring story that these two could tell that would help either of them or the promotion as a whole. If Hodge won, it would make the bigger wrestlers look like they couldnt beat the smaller wrestlers. If Brisco won, it would be a matter of displaying the obvious advantage a larger wrestler has in that type of matchup. If the battle ended in a draw, neither Brisco nor Hodge would look better, and the crowd would be left dissatisfied with the result.Size is relativeYou can see a clear example of this issue in the modern WWE. The relative size of wrestlers in the company plays a bigger factor in Roman Reigns struggle to get as over as a babyface as the WWE would like him to.Reigns is billed at 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds. That makes him closer in billed size to The New Days Big E Langston (5-foot-11, 285 pounds) than to Seth Rollins (6-foot-1, 217) or Dean Ambrose (6-foot-4, 225), and it makes Reigns tower over AJ Styles (5-foot-10, 218). Add the size disparity to the body armor Reigns wears, and it becomes next to impossible to buy into the idea that he is a babyface in peril in many of his matches.As long as Reigns works in programs such as the one he is in now with a super heavyweight such as Rusev, its possible to buy him as a babyface. Put him in the ring against any of the borderline cruiserweights working at the upper-tier of the WWEs current roster, and the audience is going to react in a similar way to how theyve treated Reigns in the past.Theyre certainly not going to believe in him as an underdog hero. Theyre going to boo him like a heel. Wholesale Stars Jerseys.

LOS ANGELES -- Freddy Galvis showed some rare power from the right side of the plate -- at the Dodgers expense.The Philadelphia shortstop hit a three-run home run in the seventh inning to help the Phillies beat Los Angeles 6-2 on Wednesday. The homer was his first right-handed since 2014.Wow, I cant even remember, Galvis said. It was like two years ago. Its happening right now on the right side. It feels good, man. Ive been working really hard in the cage trying to get my right hand back again. I know I can hit the ball in the gap and stuff, and I felt good today.Ryan Howard added a three-run, pinch double in the ninth.Los Angeles closer Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth, even with the Dodgers down 3-2, and loaded the bases. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Jansen told him before the game that he wanted to get some work in, no matter the situation. Howard hit the bases-clearing double to right for insurance runs in the victory that dropped the Dodgers a game behind first-place San Francisco in the NL West.The Phillies had little success against Dodgers starter Scott Kazmir (9-6). He struck out six and allowed four hits before leaving after 100 pitches with two runners on and no outs in the seventh inning.Left-hander Grant Dayton, after striking out the first batter he faced, gave up the Galvis homer into the left-field bullpen. Galvis has 11 home runs this season.Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson allowed one earned run and struck out seven in five innings. He left after 71 pitches with back tightness.I just felt a little tweak on the second pitch to (Chase) Utley (in the fifth), Hellickson said. It tightened up on me. I tried to talk (Phillies manager) Pete (Mackanin) into letting me go back out, but its probably a good thing he didnt let me. Ill probably be sore for a couple of days.Hellickson said hell be fine and isnt scheduled to undergo any tests on his back.Howard had his second consecutive double as a pinch hitter. He has a career batting average of .303 with the bases loaded.Is hes adjusting to his new role as a pinch hitter?I dont really know how to answer that to be honest with you. Im just playing, Howard said. Thats it. Its a game of ups and downs. You have downs. Eventually, youre going to have ups. Im trying to swing it well. Trying to stick with it, let it ride. Not put too much thought into anything.Galvis and Howard were able to tag the Dodgers bullpen for four runs. Galvis homered in consecutive games for just the second time in his career.I think the bullpen wasnt consistent, Galvis said about the Dodgers..dddddddddddd. They were throwing a lot of balls. They were walking a lot of guys, and they gave us a chance to win the game.Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager was hit in the right wrist by Elvis Araujos pitch in the sixth inning. He has a bruise and X-rays will be taken as a precautionary measure.Seager went down in pain and was attended to by a trainer, but stayed in the game. He doubled in his next at-bat, a shot to center in the eighth inning.Araujo (2-1) pitched one inning for the victory.The Dodgers scored in the first inning on Adrian Gonzalezs doubled to right, and cut it to 3-2 in the seventh on Rob Segedins RBI single.REDDICK UPDATEJosh Reddick is 5 for 32 with the Dodgers since being acquired from Oakland.Before the game, Roberts said about Reddicks slow offensive start: I have seen him as a very productive player for a long time. I think you can see the body language a little bit when you hit a ball hard, and it gets caught in left-center field or you square a ball up and the second baseman is there. Maybe a little bit of over-swinging, but hell be fine.QUOTE OF THE DAYRoberts on not calling a team meeting after ace Clayton Kershaw went down with a back injury.It was something that at that point in time, I felt we were trending in the right direction as a team. And, we have a lot of conversations individually and with certain groups or as a team about what it takes to win and be better every day. I thought the guys were understanding what me and the coaches were trying to talk about on a daily basis. I just trusted that and felt that I didnt need to call a team meeting to state the obvious.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: LHP Rich Hill (blister on finger) had his latest expected start pushed back again for precautionary measures.
