otball Playoff spot. The sec

Postautor: lw789 » 13 sty 2019, 01:19

The 2014 Rose Bowl features two almost opposite teams with one thing in common; a College Football Playoff spot. The second-seeded Oregon Ducks have arguably put together more convincing wins than any other team in college football this season. However, their record features an obvious blemish in the form of an upset loss to unranked Arizona in early October. The third-ranked Florida State Seminoles have put together narrow victories over teams critics believe they should have blown out. Though unconvincingly, the Seminoles put together their second straight undefeated season to earn a Rose Bowl berth. The two will meet for the first time this season on New Year’s Day with a trip to the National Championship game. The opposite natures of the two extend further to their star quarterbacks, both on and off the field. Florida State’s Jameis Winston, the 2013 Heisman trophy winner, has been marred in off-field controversies, including a police investigation and one-game suspension for a vulgar comment on campus. Winston also struggled in many games throughout the season, but made a habit of leading game-winning touchdown drives. His three-touchdown game against Georgia Tech snapped a six-game stretch with at least one interception – including three games with two or more picks. Oregon’s Marcus Mariota has avoided any involvement in off-field distraction for the Ducks and has played mistake-free football throughout the season. As Oregon’s offence consistently put up big offensive numbers, Mariota took centre stage. The 2014 Heisman winner threw just two interceptions on the season – one against UCLA and one against Stanford –but made up for each of those with at least four touchdowns in both games. Mariota’s impressive play allowed the Ducks to bounce back to the second ranking after falling in the AP rankings to 12th after their loss to Arizona. Winston and Florida State opened the season as the top-ranked team in college football, the natural selection coming off their National Championship. However, despite never dropping a game, the Seminoles slid back in the rankings, to the extent their CFP spot was still considered in jeopardy even after their ACC Championship win. Dating back to 2012, Florida State has won 29-straight games. Though they failed to dominate opponents this year in the fashion they did in 2013, no team in two years has been able to solve the Seminoles. Jameis Winston has also never been defeated in his career. Though the Oregon defence was often playing with the lead, their defensive statistics indicate Winston could have success against the Ducks. Florida State’s passing attack ranked 14th in college football with just shy of 300 yards per game, while Oregon’s pass defence allowed 259 yards per game, ranking as the unit 95th in the FBS. However, the Ducks defence allowed just 22.5 points per game to rank 29th in that category, one spot ahead of the Seminoles. With the defensive statistics proving inconclusive of who holds an advantage, the Mariota vs. Winston storyline moves further to the forefront. The two potential first-round NFL draft picks and former Heisman winners have been compared throughout the season. Now, they will meet for the first time in their careers. Oregon will likely prove to be the biggest test for Florida State since their 29-game streak began. The Ducks have won games soundly throughout the season and haven’t needed ‘miracles’ to do so, unlike Florida State’s 2013 bowl competitor in Auburn. Oregon is listed as a nine-point favourite to advance to the National Championship game, but if Florida State can keep the game close, the Seminoles may have one more last-minute victory in them. Logic says to the lean towards a Ducks victory, but there is a reason Florida State has never lost with Winston at the helm. Eye on Sunday QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon Mariota is widely viewed as the favourite to be selected first overall in the 2014 NFL Draft and has a chance to secure his position as the top pick with a strong run to the National Championship. Mariota is expected to emerge as the NFL’s next dual-threat quarterback and could put his legs on display against Florida State’s oversized defensive line. Throughout his three-year Oregon career, Mariota’s Ducks have held a top-two ranking only to fall down the stretch. Now finally given his chance in a playoff atmosphere, Mariota can truly prove his worth. QB Jameis Winston Winston ranks behind Mariota on most draft boards, but he can make his case for the first-overall pick in a head-to-head matchup. Though his scouting report is filled with red flags, the redshirt sophomore arguably has more talent than his cross-country rival and a stronger résumé, which he can strengthen with another national championship berth.

The Professional Referee Organization, which manages game officials for the U.S. Soccer Federation and MLS, notified the Professional Soccer Referee Association of the lockout and said replacement officials will be used.The biggest gun among unrestricted free agents was dealt just as the deadline approached, but the ultimate price sure appears to be a relative bargain. Numbers Game looks into the Canadiens securing the services of Thomas Vanek in a trade with the New York Islanders. The Canadiens Get: LW Thomas Vanek and a conditional fifth-round pick. Vanek, 30, was considered the prize of the pending unrestricted free agent class as the deadline approached. Hes scored 271 goals in 645 games since coming into the league in 2005-2006. Since his second year in the league, Vanek ranks fourth with 246 goals and hes done it with all sorts of different linemates between his time in Buffalo and, for much of this season, with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo on the top line for the New York Islanders. Vanek isnt a great possession player, some years better than others, but is so skilled and plays in an offensive role that his on-ice shooting percentage is among the best in the league over the past five seasons. In Montreal, Vanek should give the Canadiens offence a jolt, as Max Pacioretty, with 29 goals, is the only Hab with more than Vaneks 21 goals this season. Adding Vanek will give the Canadiens offence more depth and its conceivable that a finisher like Vanek can continue to produce while also elevating the production of his new linemates. A spot alongside Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk might be a decent fit to start. An unrestricted free agent in the summer, Vanek brings a cap hit of more than $7.1-million. There have been several rumours this season about Vaneks desire to end up in Minnesota, and that may be where he goes as a free agent, but Vanek also acknowledged that a winning team sure helps in the decision-making process. If Vanek can play a significant role in the Canadiens playoff push, then perhaps Montreal will be a destination that he considers as a long-term home, but that expectation had better come with the understanding that Vanek is going to command a massive contract as an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Islanders Get: RW Sebastian Collberg and a conditional second-round pick.dddddddddddd Collberg just turned 20 a couple of weeks ago and was a second-round pick in 2012. Hes a skilled forward with good speed who has 18 points in 75 Swedish Elite League games over the past two seasons with Frolunda HC. Hes put up a dozen points in 13 games at the past two World Junior Hockey Championships. Its hard to project a young forward getting limited ice time in Sweden to a big role right away in the NHL, so Collberg probably needs time in the AHL, which ought to be fine for the Islanders, who have quite a few young forwards coming through the pipeline. One of those young forwards, Anders Lee, the 23-year-old rookie pro out of Notre Dame, could see quite a bit of action in a scoring role down the stretch. Lee has four goals and six points in six NHL games (this year and last) and, with Vanek gone, there is room for Lee to show that he should be a part of the plans for next seasons team. The conditional picks are based on whether or not the Canadiens make the playoffs. If they hold their current playoff spot, then the Canadiens swap their second-rounder for the Islanders fifth-round pick. If the Canadiens fall out and miss the playoffs, then the deal will just be Collberg for the rental of Vanek. All told, the price doesnt seem to be nearly enough a return for the Islanders, who were out of the race early enough that everyone knew they were going to deal Vanek, but somehow appeared to overplay their hand because even if Collberg is a good prospect, that doesnt seem to match the price paid for lesser players. As a result of that incongruous fit between the Islanders asking price and what the market was ultimately willing to pay, it sure appears to have provided an opening for Montreal GM Marc Bergevin to take advantage and upgrade his team at a very reasonable price.
