itself as a family. A family has points of tension. I certainly understand the angst and frustration. I have my own level of ang Antworten

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey says the LSU-Florida game, which was postponed indefinitely because of Hurricane Matthew, needs to be played.On the phone with CBS broadcasters during the Tennessee-Texas A&M game Saturday, Sankey said LSU and Florida need to work together to reschedule their game.Well, the game needs to be played, Sankey said. And we need to work together to find a way to do that. This conference often describes itself as a family. A family has points of tension. I certainly understand the angst and frustration. I have my own level of angst. But we need to find a way to come together to play a football game and find the best way to do that.Sankey and Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley have been criticized for failing to find a way to play the game, which was originally scheduled for noon Saturday in Gainesville.With the storm forecast to move up the Florida coastline, the teams and the conference discussed potential options Wednesday and then pushed the decision to Thursday. The Tigers offered to host the game in Baton Rouge, but Florida declined because Foley said it was too difficult to put that kind of trip together in a day and a half. Foley insisted that until Wednesday night, his staff believed the game could be played Saturday with a later start time. The schools and the SEC had initially agreed to move the game to 4 p.m.The SEC finally postponed the game Thursday afternoon, and both sides seemed aggravated with how everything played out.Critics said Foley intentionally delayed the decision because the banged-up Gators needed a bye week and thought Sankey should have moved the game to Baton Rouge on Wednesday. They cited how last years LSU-South Carolina game was moved to Tiger Stadium because of flooding in the Columbia area. They also pointed to two other Saturday games -- Florida State at Miami and Georgia at South Carolina -- that remained scheduled despite potential problems from the hurricane.We have to remember that security concerns are very different than they were a year ago, Sankey said. We didnt know how players families would be impacted. The university closed earlier than thought and will remain closed for the day, Sunday, not `til Monday morning as they continue to evaluate. And then you have a bunch of evacuees who were moving into the Gainesville area. A number of those things are different than what we saw in Georgia-South Carolina, where theres bus travel involved, we could secure space for the team to stay without displacing evacuees, emergency personnel were still available to staff the game. You have to understand that.Sankey said there are a number of options being considered to reschedule the game.One of those is Nov. 19. The Tigers (3-2, 2-1 SEC) and the 18th-ranked Gators (4-1, 2-1) each play nonconference games at home that Saturday and would need to buy out those opponents, South Alabama for LSU and Presbyterian for Florida. The Tigers would be on the hook for $1.5 million to South Alabama, and the Gators would have to pay $500,000 to Presbyterian of the Football Championship Subdivision.Doing that would mean the Tigers would lose a home game (and the $3 million it generates) and end the regular season with three consecutive road games -- against Arkansas (Nov. 12), Florida (Nov. 19) and Texas A&M (Nov. 24). Three conference road games in a 13-day span are far from ideal for anyone.There are a number of people who have thrown options, Sankey said. We want to make sure we evaluate everything, but wed like to move this along as efficiently as possible. But Ill be careful not to put a place in time where we can provide a definitive answer because there are a number of issues that have to be considered. But my desire is to see us play that game.Other SEC teams want -- and maybe need -- the game to be played. If not, it could affect both division races down the stretch.We need to come together, Sankey said. Thats the reality. We need to come together. I am in a position to lead that effort, but we all have responsibility because this affects the entire conference.---AP college football website: Noah Syndergaard Jersey .

Jacob deGrom Jersey . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action.TORONTO - There he stood, possibly days away from a return to the bus trips and not-quite-five-star-hotel lifestyle of minor league baseball, to address the media after his latest incident of unlikely heroism. Munenori Kawasaki had hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning to pull his Blue Jays even with the Orioles, paving the way for Rajai Davis walk off single that would come two innings later. Toronto had won its ninth in a row, by a score of 7-6, and had gotten to .500 for the first time all season. Kawasakis fingerprints were all over the victory. With interpreter Yashushi Kikuchi of Kyodo News by his side, Kawasaki chose not to lean on his native tongue. He wished to describe in broken English his big hit and the subsequent crowd reaction. "Very happy and appreciate, thank you appreciate," said Kawasaki. "Yeah. Thank you, appreciate." It was Kawasakis first career home run in his 118th major league game. It came just days after an in jest debate on TSN 1050s "Macko & Cauz" show about a legitimate question: Did Kawasaki possess the ability to hit a home run in a major league park? The answer this writer gave was "no." This writer was wrong. Not only could Kawasaki drive a ball 380 feet, his knack for timing couldnt be ignored. "I would say that its no surprise but that home run was a surprise Ive got to say," said starter R.A. Dickey, who was taken off the hook by Kawasakis dinger. "The legend grows, you know. The Kawasaki legend grows and rightfully so." Who knows how Blue Jays fans will remember the summer of 2013. That chapter of this once depressing, suddenly thrilling yet perfectly even ride (see the record of 36-36) hasnt been written. What was made clear by the "Kawasaki" chants from 35,472 fans at Rogers Centre, the chants which darn near shook the building, is that the spring of 2013 belonged to Kawasaki. Edwin Encarnacions all-star caliber first half of 20 home runs and 59 RBI hasnt captured the imagination quite like Kawasaki, nor has Caseey Janssens leadership of a dominant bullpen or Adam Linds offensive brilliance.dddddddddddd Why is it that Munenori Kawasaki captivates? First, Kawasaki represents an idealism which often isnt reality. He exudes true joy. He is playful in a sport thats big business. His teammates are drawn to him. An example youve seen repeatedly: Kawasaki makes a put out and then turns to face Melky Cabrera in left field. The two bow to each other. Its how two men, one of whom speaks Japanese, the other of whom speaks Spanish and neither of whom speaks English well, communicate. Kawasaki draws out a side of Cabrera, a likable type but naturally shy, fans wouldnt otherwise see. Second, during his time in Toronto Kawasaki has maximized his talent. Hell never have the power of Jose Bautista; his throwing arm wont be mistaken for Jose Reyes. Think back to the April days immediately after Reyes got hurt. Alex Anthopoulos, a general manager notorious for keeping his cards close to his vest, was openly musing about the need to make a trade for a defensive shortstop. Little did he know Kawasaki would more than ably fill the role; a trade never was made. Even the statistics come up Kawasaki. Coming in to Friday night, having appeared in 56 games, he had a Wins Above Replacement (WAR) rating of 1.1. Hes the replacement whos played above replacement level. With Reyes due to return to the Blue Jays lineup no later than Monday in Tampa Bay, Kawasakis fate hangs in the balance. The natural move would be to activate Reyes and option Kawasaki to Triple-A Buffalo. He can be recalled, after all. But manager John Gibbons wont commit one way or the other. Maybe the underdog has given the brass something to chew on. "Hes added a lot, off the field," said Gibbons. "The teammates love him, the fans love him. You cant help it. You know, hes contributed big time on the field with some key hits here and there, good fundamental baseball." One things for sure, if Kawasaki goes, the Orioles wont mind. He seems to have their number.
