COLLEGE FOOTBALLAUSTIN, Texas -- Texas says nothing has been decided on football coach Charlie Strong. Cheap Custom Cavaliers Jersey .Longhorns athletic director Mike Perrin, in the face of swirling reports that school officials had decided to fire Strong at the end of a third bad season, dismissed them as rumors and said the coach would be evaluated after playing TCU on Friday.Perrin, who has been publicly supportive of Strong all season, didnt say Strong would return.There are a number of rumors out there about the status of Coach Strong. Ive said it all along, we will evaluate the body of work after the regular season. We have a game to get ready for against TCU on Friday, and I hope our fans will come out and support our team. Well discuss where things stand after that, Perrin said.That sets up an awkward Monday for Strong when he addresses reporters on the Big 12 coaches conference call, and then later at his weekly campus news conference, which is televised by the Longhorn Network.UNDATED -- The Big Ten placed three teams in the top five of The Associated Press college football poll for the first time in 56 years, setting up a No. 2 vs. No. 3 matchup for Ohio State and Michigan.Alabama was a unanimous No. 1 in the poll released Sunday. The Buckeyes were No. 2 and Wolverines No. 3. They meet in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday in a game with Big Ten and national championship implications.Clemson is No. 4, and No. 5 Wisconsin gives the Big Ten three of the first five for the first time since Nov. 7, 1960, when Minnesota was No. 1, Ohio State was No. 3 and Iowa was No. 5.Louisville dropped eight spots to No. 11 after getting trounced by Houston, which jumped in at No. 18.AUTO RACINGHOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Jimmie Johnson tied Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt with a record seven NASCAR championships when the hard-luck breaks of racing turned Sundays title-deciding finale into his crowning moment.Johnson probably had the worst car of the four championship contenders at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but a strange sequence of events opened the track for him to take the title over Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and defending champion Kyle Busch.Edwards was in position to win until a caution with 10 laps remaining set up a wild sequence that ruined his title hopes. Edwards tried to block Logano on the restart, wound up wrecked, and it was Johnson who drove through the wreckage to take the championship lead.Johnson had to withstand two more restarts, including one in overtime, to score his first career victory at Homestead in the most monumental race of his career.PRO FOOTBALLNFL kickers missed like never before Sunday, setting a record with 12 failed extra point attempts.Kickers missed left and right, had kicks blocked and hit the uprights. Kickers missed in the wind and indoors. With several games left, kickers already had the most misses in one week since the NFL merger.The NFL moved extra-point attempts back before last season because the kicks had become routine, and professionals almost never missed. The 18-yard attempt became a 35-yarder. In Week 13 of last season, kickers missed eight. That mark was eclipsed by mid-afternoon Sunday.OLYMPICSGLASGOW, Scotland -- Russian sport is a long way from convincing the world that it has cleaned up its act, the World Anti-Doping Agency declared Sunday, pointing to the states failure to accept it was behind a doping program, its continued obstruction of testing, and a series of cyberattacks.Russia is seeking readmission to WADA a year after being declared non-compliant with the doping code, following the publication of a report detailing widespread cheating in track and field.Fresh evidence of state-backed doping cover-ups was revealed by investigators ahead of the Rio de Janeiro Games, although WADAs recommendation of a blanket ban on Russias Olympic team was rejected by the IOC.Russias integrity is set to be challenged again when Canadian law professor Richard McLarens final doping report is published on Dec. 9, with the focus on winter sports.WADA also said Sunday that a gene doping test will be used shortly by accredited laboratories. Custom Kyrie Irving Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Custom Cavaliers Jersey China . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. http://www.customcavaliersjersey.com/ . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. SAN JOSE, Calif. -- After ending their first road trip with a dud in Detroit, the San Jose Sharks have looked more like the team that won the Western Conference last season once they returned home.Joe Pavelski and Tommy Wingels scored 17 seconds apart and San Jose went on to beat the Nashville Predators 4-1 on Saturday night in a rematch of last seasons seven-game, second-round playoff series won by the Sharks.The Sharks responded from a 2/3 road trip capped by a 3-0 loss to the Red Wings by winning all three at home -- allowing just three goals in the process.That last game, I dont know if it was just a last game on the road trip type of game, but we werent very good, forward Logan Couture said. I figured when we got home wed play a little bit better.That didnt happen last season when San Jose had the leagues top road record but lost more regular season home games than any playoff team. The Sharks are changing that script early this season with four straight home wins at the start.I know weve struggled in this building for whatever reason, Wingels said. No excuses. Is it nice to have a different effort and a different result this year? Absolutely. Were going to build on it, and try to string five, six, or seven in a row.Joonas Donskoi also scored and Joe Thornton added an empty-netter as the Sharks picked up where they left off last spring from that all-home team series against the Predators. Martin Jones made 27 saves to help San Jose finish off the 3-0 homestand.James Neal scored the lone goal for the struggling Predators. Nashville has lost six of its last seven games and is winless in five road contests this season. Pekka Rinne made 23 saves.We just feel like were just not playing up to our potential right now, captain Mike Fisher said. We know were a better team. When youre not getting the results its frustrating.This game turned quickly early in the second period. Jones started it when he stopped Craig Smith on a breakaway after a defensive breakdown by teammate Melker Karlsson.The Sharks then qquickly drew the games first power play when Yannick Weber was called for cross checking. Kyrie Irving Jersey Large. San Jose took just 6 seconds to cash that in for a goal when Thornton won the faceoff. Brent Burns point shot went wide off the back boards, but Pavelski knocked the rebound into the crease and it deflected off Rinne and into the net.Before the fans were even done celebrating that goal, San Jose got another fortunate bounce when David Schlemkos shot hit teammate Michael Haley and went straight to Wingels, who knocked it into the open net for his first goal of the season.The Predators finally got on the board in the final minute of the second period when Neal deflected Ryan Ellis point shot past Jones but it wasnt enough.We have to find a way to come out in these games and score the first goal and get a lead and try to build on it as opposed to always trying to chase the game from behind and never having that comfort of being up a goal, coach Peter Laviolette said. I thought we fought in the third period. Its tough coming back from being down 3-0.San Jose struck first late in the opening period after a wild shift that started with Donskoi and Joel Ward failing to put the puck in even though was caught well out of the net trying to play the puck. But the Sharks kept the pressure on and Donskoi eventually slid a rebound under Rinnes pad for the opening goal.Game notes Nashville has allowed the first goal in seven of eight games this season. ... The Sharks had their first perfect homestand of at least three games since going 5-0 in December 2014. San Jose is 4-0 overall at home after winning just four of its first 14 at the Shark Tank last season. ... San Jose has killed 19 of 20 penalties over the past six games.UP NEXTPredators: Continue a five-game road trip Tuesday night at Colorado.Sharks: Head on the road to take on Arizona on Tuesday night for the first time this season.
