Clarke conveys Australia's nerves
Few can recall a nervier Michael Clarke press conference than the one he delivered in Brisbane on the eve of Australia's bid to wrest the Ashes back from England at home. Where usually he is polished, sunny and even given to the odd bout of verbosity, this time Clarke was clipped, terse and taciturn. Tense from the moment he walked into the Champions Room at the Gabba, Clarke's prickliness was so evident that his media minder could be heard offering the aside "be nice and positive" in the seconds after the tapes started rolling.
While it cannot be cheap jerseys known exactly why Clarke was so distracted, it was fair to surmise that the imminent start of this series provided good reason for introspection. Clarke, his team and Cricket Australia have reached a moment of enormous import not only to all of their careers, but to the game down under. For some weeks, the hosts have projected an image of stability, calm confidence and greater enjoyment under the mentoring of the newish coach Darren Lehmann. But now, with the curtain about to rise, Clarke's mien conveyed the nervousness that bubbles underneath.
Enough members of Clarke's team experienced the humiliation of a 3 1 defeat in the last home Ashes series in 2010 11 to know that failure is not an option. That result caused major upheaval in Australian cricket, hastening the exit of the captain Ricky Ponting, the coach Tim Nielsen, and the chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch. A second such loss on home shores would leave plenty of CA staff looking over their shoulders, not least the industrious team performance manager Pat Howard, anointed by the Argus review as the single point of accountability for the performance of the national side.
Clarke struck a curious note before the previous series also, stressing that Ashes results would not define his captaincy. These words were in contrast with those of his opposite number Alastair Cook, who acknowledged the seemingly obvious point that yes, he would be historically judged largely on the strength of his results against Australia. This time, Clarke's most expansive response suggested that he could not promise victory, and hoped Australian fans would understand this and remain supportive.
Numerous reasons do exist for Clarke and his team to enter this series with a "nice and positive" mindset. Under Lehmann's confident stewardship the dressing room ructions of India and England appear to have settled down, while time in the job has allowed the coach to identify and imbue belief in the players he has deemed worthy. The likes of Chris Rogers, Brad Haddin, Ryan Harris and even the debutant George Bailey have brought solid character and life experience to the team, balancing the brio of David Warner, the fearlessness of James Faulkner and the youthful enthusiasm of Nathan Lyon.
Craig McDermott, John Davison and Mike Young have been called in to bolster the pace, spin and catching departments, even if the latter's presence seemed to infringe on the role of the incumbent fielding coach Steve Rixon. The team doctor Peter Brukner has maintained his recent success in building up the fitness of Shane Watson, who now appears capable of bowling as well as batting. Former players have buzzed smilingly around the team, including Mark Taylor and Glenn McGrath, while recognition of Haddin's 50th Test has offered an individual motivator in addition to the team imperatives.
Plenty may be drawn also from the surrounds in which the Australians find themselves this week. They have not lost a Test match at the Gabba since falling foul of the West Indies in 1988, and not really looked like doing so for equally as long. So pronounced is the Gabba advantage that England regarded their second innings rearguard four summers ago as near enough to a victory, not only leaving Brisbane on level terms but also exhausting the hosts with two consecutive days in the field. In many ways it is the last fortress of the previous empire, the pacey pitch and early season spot in the schedule contributing to the downfall of many an underdone touring team.
England are underdone by their own precise reckoning, having lost more than two full days of preparatory playing hours and a good deal more training time to rain in Hobart, Sydney and Brisbane. They are also less sure of the final XI for Brisbane than at this point in 2010. Back then the tourists' nominated bowling attack had flown up to Queensland early. Now the identity of England's third seamer and wicketkeeper will only be known for sure at the toss. For an opening partner Alastair Cook will not have Andrew Strauss but Michael Carberry Joe Root's demotion is a victory for Australia's pacemen even before a ball is bowled.
So there was plenty of reason for Clarke to puff his chest out while speaking publicly about the series to come, thereby enhancing curiosity about why he did not. Perhaps the greatest clue for Clarke's trepidation may be derived from Australia's Test match record in 2013 played 10, won one, lost seven. It is no sort of foundation for a team, and another loss in Brisbane would shatter much of the rebuilding work that has preceded it. Asked about summoning the belief to win over five days for the first time since the New Year's Test against Sri Lanka in Sydney, Clarke replied: "I think the belief's there and hopefully we'll show that over the next five Test matches."
The wholesale nfl jerseys next captain question is a good one. Bailey is a proven leader but he'd have to score runs to justify his position. Another future captain candidate is Steve Smith but I think it's too early for him to step up.
If Clarke does fail to win a match this series (which for the record I don't think will happen) we may see Clarke step down as captain, Bailey be promoted (assuming that he's scoring runs) and Steve Smith as Vice Captain with the view of him being captain when Bailey retires or looses form.
I reasonably confident that it won't come to that.
Humility and understatement on the eve of the Test is highly appropriate given the recent history of these teams, phony wars are over and Clarke has nothing to be cocky about with the public. Recall his speech after the last series, he's understandably worn at answering for defeat, forseeing this possibility is pragmatic not negative or lacking in confidence, Eng are rightly favorites and can ride the wave home with a win in Brisbane whilst an Aust win can be viewed with only cautious relief and mild optimism, only a fool would talk big as Clarke supposedly should have.
If Michael Clarke again fails to win a single test match in an Ashes series (or do even worse than Australia did last time), his capaincy would definately be called into question. Alot has been written about his relationships with former players and their reluctance to prolong their stay in the national side, I for one was surprised to see Bailey even picked considering the previous between the two. If Australia lose the 1st test (surely the Gabba road and the rain would play some part in the preceedings) then the writing will most definately be on the wall. The Question is, who would be the next captain after Clarke?
Australian cricket seems to have arrived at a point where England were five years ago. The young players are learning the game as twenty twenty players rather than five day players, the batters are cameo batsmen and the bowlers are used to bowling five overs rather cheap nfl jerseys than twenty. The only reliable batsmen seem to be those who have learnt their art playing in the County Championship and are veterans compared with earlier Australian teams. If the ECB stopped Australian players from playing in the County Championship it would finish Australia as a Test Playing Country and they would become like the current West Indies team.
Clarke, normally so relaxed in front of the cameras, is obviously worried about something. Are he DL absolutely sure of the team? Is his back back? Is there dissent in the ranks? Is it all a stunt ( what would be gained by this tentative performance then nothing!). For Oz to reclaim the Ashes there needs to be an air of security confidence emanating from the skip on the eve of battle. I want a good tussle with lots of memorable cricket yes, I want England to win but with Oz playing their best cricket, with both sides at full strength, because that produces cricket worthy of the Ashes.
Assistant editor Daniel Brettig had been a journalist for eight years when he joined ESPNcricinfo, but his fascination with cricket dates back to the early 1990s, when his dad helped him sneak into the family lounge room to watch the end of day night World Series matches well past bedtime. Unapologetically passionate about indie music and the South Australian wholesale jerseys Redbacks, Daniel's chief cricketing achievement was to dismiss cheap nfl jerseys Wisden Almanack editor Lawrence Booth in the 2010 Ashes press match in Perth a rare Australian victory that summer.

Panthers grind way to regional final
CANTON: When in doubt, go old school.
That has been the Jim France philosophy for most of his 42 years as coach at Manchester and the Panthers worked it to perfection again on Saturday in Andrew Luck Super Bowl 49 Jersey a 35 7 victory over Fairless in a Division V regional semifinal game at a sold out Canton Central Catholic Stadium.
After taking a 14 0 lead midway through the second quarter the Panthers went no frills. They lined up and churned out yardage like an earth mover paving the way for a new development. Full house backfield. No one in motion. Passes only when necessary. Nothing fancy, just old fashioned grind it out, stop us if you can football. All that was missing? Leather helmets.
I old so I have to do old school stuff, said France, 70. our kids are blue collar, they physical, they want to win and don like to lose. found out the hard way.
was Manchester football, said senior Bobby Bowen, who had two of Manchester three interceptions.
the way we like to play, said running back Mason Hayes, one of many stars in the Panthers galaxy. Hayes, a 6 2, 220 pound junior, carried the ball 24 times for 92 yards and three touchdowns as Manchester rolled up 209 yards on the ground.
The Panthers (10 2) advance to next weekend regional finals for the seventh time in school history and will play Columbiana Crestview at a site to be determined today.
Manchester took a 14 0 lead and never looked back.
While the offense operated efficiently behind junior quarterback Pavin Parks (6 of 11, 56 yards, one touchdown, no interceptions), the defense T.Y. Hilton Super Bowl 49 Jersey threw a net around the Falcons and never let standout T.Y. Hilton Super Bowl Jersey quarterback Hunter Wells and his band of receivers get any momentum. The Panthers intercepted three passes and held Fairless (8 4) to 197 yards. Wells, who entered the game having thrown for 3,395 yards and 32 touchdowns, completed 14 of 35 passes for 166 yards but failed to find the end zone.
Jacob Hanzel and Sterling Jackson, the only two down linemen on Manchester defense, and others such as Jesse Winter, Austin Wright, Aaron Hoxworth and Drew Baisel made significant contributions.
The Panthers, in the playoffs for the 21st time under France, came up with three interceptions and were the recipients of a bad snap that resulted in a 24 yard loss. They were able to score after two of the errors but the other two enabled them to keep the ball out of Wells hands.
Fairless, making its second consecutive playoff appearance under second year coach Don Wilson, did not score until Wells hooked up with Austin Weyandt for a 2 yard score with 3:32 left in the third quarter.
Dakota Craig made the first interception, picking off Wells fourth attempt of the game with Manchester already http://www.coltsofficialnflprostore.com/PAT_MCAFEE_SUPER_BOWL_JERSEY.html ahead 7 0, thanks to coltsofficialnflprostore.com/VONTAE_DAVIS_SUPER_BOWL_JERSEY.html a picture perfect 12 play opening drive that covered 62 yards and ate up most of the first quarter.
Hayes capped the drive by bulling the final two yards after Andrew Luck Super Bowl XLIX Jersey Parks completed 3 of 3 passes for 23 yards.
Manchester forced a punt midway through the second quarter and took over on downs at the Fairless 24 when the snap from center sailed through the hands of punter Cody Sword. Hayes scored his second touchdown four plays later on a run of 4 yards.

Seahawks the best bet pick in Week 8
While the Panthers (3 3) are getting solid Wholesale Snapbacks Hats performances from quarterback Cam Newton and receiver Steve Smith on offense, tackling machine Luke Kuechly at linebacker, and safety Mike Mitchell, they're also plus 5 in turnover margin.
So why not look up in the standings at a potential wild card chi flat irons spot, especially facing the most dysfunctional team in the league this year, the Bucs?
"I can't stress enough how proper preparation can increase the confidence come game time," Newton said, speaking for himself as well as the team. "When you come to the line and you know that you've been coached up to expect a certain look and then you get that look you don't panic."
Panic City might be another name for Tampa, where rookie Mike Glennon makes his fourth start since incumbent quarterback Josh Freeman was exiled. Halfback Doug Martin hurt his shoulder in Sunday's loss.
"I just take the next task at hand," coach Greg Schiano said. "I can tell you, on a short week like this, you don't get a lot of sleep. You try to get everything done. You try to make it as good a plan, yet not very complicated, because you don't have a lot of time to practice.
"It really has to be between Cheap Snapbacks the ears, get yourself, physically, feeling as well as you can as a football team, and we've chi flat iron website got to go out and execute against a team that, right now, is pretty hot."

Team investigates Quanell X
HOUSTON a media magnet who has spoken out against racism, injustice and police brutality for more than a decade. But the KHOU 11 News I Team has discovered that sometimes the help of Quanell X comes with a price price paid by the very people who need him and, in some cases, who end up feeling cheated.
Sandra Laday is one of them.
It was May 2009. Her son Kevin Laday had just died in the custody of the Lumberton police, a town just outside of Beaumont. Sandra Laday felt the circumstances were murky and unclear.
Needing answers, she got hold of the man known as a guardian of the black community.
But she also got a surprise X told her she would have to pay him cash and fast.
would cost me about $2,500 or $3,500, Laday said. like he wanted it the next day and wanted me to wire it to him. said she was told the fee was for Cheap Jerseys a private investigator. But living on a fixed income, she said she told Quanell cheap evening dresses X there was no way she could scrape up that kind of money.
he said, come down, but you need $600, Laday said.
But what happened, said Laday, was something she didn want or cheap prom dresses online need 30 minute protest rally of a full blown investigation into her son death.
shouldn have contacted him because it didn do me any good, Laday said. feel like I been taken advantage of. mother, Hilda Pete, said she got a whole lot less after paying a whole lot more.
going to get your money and don do nothing for you, Pete said. a con artist.
Pete son, Joe Nathan Sanders, was convicted of capital murder in 2007. Believing he was innocent, Pete approached Quanell X for help and said he also soon brought up money.
Pete said at first he asked for $3,500 to investigate her son case, but eventually needed more. In all, Pete claims she paid the activist some $9,000 for his help.
The problem? First, she said Quanell X became very hard to reach, and wouldn return phone calls and e mails. Then, Pete said she received little documentation such as investigative reports, invoices or statements, verifying work was, in fact, being done on her son case.
For example, Pete said Quanell X charged her $850 for a trial transcript she said she never received to this day.
the transcript? Pete said.
The I Team has found no evidence that Quanell X or his private investigators ever requested a copy. Records from the Texas First Court of Appeals show that the only transcript ordered went to the Innocence Project. It an outside legal team that investigates convictions and has no affiliation with the activist or Sanders appellate attorney. The court reporter who actually created the transcript also confirmed no other copies were requested.
Finally, court records also show the transcript provided to the Innocence Project cost $81.50 ten times less than the $850 Pete said Quanell X charged.
It is now four years after she first started paying, and Pete said she has no idea if her money ever helped her son or where it went.
am I getting out of this? What is the money for? Pete said. has to be brought out that he hurting lots of people. fact, the I Team has spoken with a half dozen other people who claim they too either paid Quanell X and got little in return, or when they couldn pay, Quanell X turned them away.
The I Team spoke with several African American community activists from across the nation, and covering the range of the political spectrum. They all shared the viewpoint of Lecia Brooks.
don call him an activist, Brooks said. call him an entrepreneur. 56, has a long record as a well regarded community activist and as a historian of activism. Growing up in Oakland, California, she said she remembers how activists, such as the NFL Jerseys Wholesale original Black Panthers, created free clinics and services for her neighborhood and others. Brooks herself began working at the National Conference for Community and Justice, helping the disadvantaged and teaching tolerance seminars. She now runs the Civil Rights Memorial at the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that has fought hate and racism for decades.
Why does she call Quanell X an entrepreneur? Brooks said an activist generally does not fund a cause from the very people who need his help, but rather from donors and grants. Otherwise, Brooks said, making someone pay a significant fee for a service is simply a business transaction and not activism.
a community leader during the press conference and you an entrepreneur when someone comes to you for help she said. very unfortunate. we had some questions for Quanell X.
I Team: of the people we spoken with say you appeared to be more about the money, rather than their plight.
Quanell X: that not the case. many people have you turned down because they can pay? X: be honest with you, I not sure.
Quanell X: not sure about that. you have done so.
Quanell X: have turned some away, yes. can pay, you won play? X: there no such thing as can pay, we won play because we been playing for so long without any financial interest given to us in many cases. fact, Quanell X drafted five pages of cases he said he handled for no compensation. They include helping individuals, or aiding in a communal injustice. Additionally, at a restaurant in the Third Ward of Houston, Minister Robert Muhammad gathered a group of people who said Quanell X provided something vital to them without charging a dime.

Italian lemon varieties show up at Southern California farmers markets

Femminello lemons, displaying the ample form for which they are named, (David Karp )
Lemons are most in demand in summer, for making lemonade, serving with cocktails and squeezing on fish. There's a little bit of a disconnect with production, which is concentrated, from different growing areas, in the fall to spring months; but there's still plenty of supply throughout the summer from coastal districts. Most commercial production is of the standard Eureka and Lisbon varieties, but in the last decade a few farmers market and specialty growers have planted Italian varieties, famed for their romantic history and intensely aromatic rinds.
Most of the lemons used in the United States until the 1890s were imported from Italy, and before then it was controversial whether California would ever develop www.packersauthenticofficialshop.com/JORDY_NELSON_SUPER_BOWL_JERSEY.html the varieties and expertise that would allow it to supply the domestic market. Planting the Eureka and Lisbon lemons, local growers eventually succeeded in a big way, so that today about 60,000 acres are grown in California and Arizona, and imports of fresh Italian lemons are rare.
Italian lemons still have a mystique, however, dating to the Roman era, when they were depicted on Pompeian frescoes.
The primary lemon growing areas in Italy are Sicily, particularly the eastern coast around Messina and Syracuse, and the Sorrento and Amalfi coasts, near Naples. The Femminello group of varieties, named for their protruding nipples and ample form, account for the majority of production. There are half www.packersauthenticofficialshop.com/EDDIE_LACY_SUPER_BOWL_JERSEY.html a dozen selections that have their own particular characteristics but share a similar aromatic profile, although there are subtle differences in fragrance and flavor.
For reasons that remain unclear, Femminello lemon trees were not imported or did not become established in the early days of California citriculture. Two varieties, the original Femminello Ovale and a disease resistant selection called Femminello Santa Teresa, were brought in about 50 years ago but did not become widely available to farmers. Only in the last decade did four or five growers put in small plantings of Italian lemons after encountering them on tours of the variety collection at the Willits Newcomb nursery in Arvin.
One of those was Lance Walheim of California Citrus Specialties, who with his partner, Mike Foskett, planted several hundred trees of Italian lemons. He became so intrigued that he visited the Sorrento lemon district, where he found that it was hard to unravel the influence of the varieties, climate, ripeness and growing practices on fruit quality.
"On the Sorrento coast they say the climate and rich, deep volcanic soil contribute to the flavor of the lemons," he said. "Also, the aromatic oils are strongest when the lemons are turning from green Clay Matthews Super Bowl Jersey to yellow, and that's when they make limoncello."
Steve Smith of Mud Creek Ranch, who is so passionate about unusual crops that his organic farm in Santa Paula is a virtual one family agricultural experiment station, planted about 100 trees of Italian lemons. His wife, Robin, just started bringing the most recent picking to the Hollywood and Beverly Hills markets on Sundays, and Santa Monica on Wednesdays, where they're popular with chefs, she says.
William and Linda Zaiser of Rancho del Sol planted 168 trees, about 2 acres, of Femminello Santa Teresa in Jamul, 15 miles east of San Diego.
"They're beautiful, vigorous trees, the fruits have very few seeds and their aromatics are absolutely different Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl 49 Jersey from normal lemons," says Bill Zaiser.
Their Femminellos, available year round, are sold by variety at Jimbo's markets in San Diego County and by mail order, $30 for 10 pounds, including shipping. Linda Zaiser will be offering limoncello classes and a tasting party at the farm ($40, call  669 1145 for an appointment); she also will do a demonstration at the Little Italy farmers market in San Diego on Saturday, June 18. This year the crop has been Clay Matthews Super Bowl XLIX Jersey delayed by cool spring weather, but in the last week Helle and Eric Todd of Forcefield Farm, from Santa Paula, started bringing dry farmed Blenheims with fantastically rich, concentrated flavor to the Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica markets.
Apricot aficionados particularly prize dry farmed Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl Jersey fruits, which are smaller but more intense in flavor than crops from irrigated orchards. There's something about the stony, reflective soil at the Todds' farm that takes this process to the ultimate, imparting a minerally tang and firm but melting texture to the fruits. The most beautiful and delicious specimens have a reddish speckling that indicates that they have enjoyed a sun exposed position on the tree. Some fruits may display cosmetic imperfections, such as sunburn, "cat scratches" and bird pecks, but if there is a more exquisite apricot available in these parts, I know it not.

UVa defense could be heading for historically bad numbers
Presently, the Cavaliers defense has surrendered 338 points in 10 games, which unless they can tighten things up, potentially could be the worst in that category since 1975 when UVa went 1 10 in Sonny Randle's final season. That year, the Cavaliers gave up 428 points (38.9 ppg), the most in post World War II UVa football.
The '75 Wahoo defense gave up 58 touchdowns, also a post WWII era record. The present UVa defense has given up 44 (and, yes, we know the '75 team played 11 games compared to present day's 12).
This year's 'D' is giving up 33.8 per game, about five points below the '75 average, with two games to play against Miami and Virginia Tech. UVa is tied for 98th out of 123 FBS teams in scoring defense.
That '75 squad lost its last nine games and gave up 60 points or more in three of those nine losses. This year's defense has given up 59 twice to Top 10 teams Oregon and Clemson.
What has hurt Virginia the most, other than injuries to key personnel, is giving up big plays, by far the most of any team in the ACC.
Asked during Wednesday's ACC Coaches teleconference about whether it has been difficult keeping his committed recruiting class together, Virginia coach Mike London reaffirmed what he said in my column last Sunday.
"Thus far, everything's been very positive for us in terms of the young men who have said yes," London said. "they've said yes because they feel that they can be the difference and their talent is the type of talent that speaks to their opportunities to help this football team. That's been positiveit's been very positive even as we speak to 2015."
If Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson needs any motivation to get his Yellow Jackets up for tonight's game at Clemson, he can point to an opportunity to win the ACC's Coastal Division and play in the league championship for a second straight year.
Georgia replica christian louboutin shoes Tech did so in 2012 by default when Miami declared itself ineligible to play for the title (UNC was also ineligible due to NCAA sanctions).
"I think our guys will be motivated," Tech coach Paul Johnson said. "It's a rivalry game. It's a national game on ESPN. I think [Clemson] has a great team and that's a far bigger motivating factor."
Johnson did acknowledge that should Tech win tonight, his Jackets will be finished with ACC play with a 6 2 record and there's no other team in the Coastal with less than two losses, so should that hold up, the Jackets can do no worse than tie.
Virginia Tech is 4 2 (Maryland and UVa left to play), while Duke is 3 2 (Miami, Wake, UNC left), and Miami is 3 2 (Duke, UVa, and Pitt remaining).
The Hokies have beaten both Miami and Georgia Tech and lost to Duke.
Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst was put on the spot during Wednesday's teleconference when asked about video showing off his rhythm (and we use that term loosely) and dance moves that he exhibited in celebrating the Panthers' upset over Notre Dame last week.
"The locker rooms used to be sacred," Chryst said, joking attempting to change the subject.
"They're not anymore," a reporter responded.
"No, they're not, and shame on me for being so nave but we're taking care of measures to make sure that doesn't happen again," Chryst said of the security leak.
"Okay, now that I'm done picking you in all seriousness," the reporter said.
"I refuse to look at [the video] by the way," Chryst said. "My kids looked at it and said, 'Thanks a lot, Dad.'"
Perhaps he's the most underrated player in the ACC (not by coaches, but by fans and media). Boston College senior running back Andre Williams leads the nation in rushing yards per game (163.4) and total rushing yards (1,471).
Williams put up 295 rushing yards against New Mexico State last week. Perhaps Virginia should consider scheduling those guys.
The BC back has a chance to eclipse two ACC records held by legendary Virginia tailback Thomas Jones, who holds marks for the highest single season rushing average per game (163.5), and most yards rushing in a season (1,798), both established in 1999. There could be an asterisk attached though because Jones did it in 11 games.
Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said that even though QB Tanner Price threw six interceptions against Florida State last week, he plans to Wholesale NFL Jerseys stick with Price as the Deacons' starter. Six ACC teams are already bowl eligible and four more have an opportunity to become eligible this weekend: Boston College, Pitt, Syracuse and Maryland. While Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas has his detractors, particularly for his passing skills, the senior has moved to No. 1 on Tech's all time TD passes list with 50 and over the last two games, he has thrown for a combined 757 yards. By the way, Wake's Grobe said in last week's Scattershooting that it was the best FSU team he's seen in his 13 years in the league and after playing the Seminoles, he's further convinced: "I think from top to bottom, if you look at the offense and defense, this is the most solid Florida State team we've played in the 13 years I've played them." UVa coach Mike London said that while he will give backup QB Greyson Lambert more snaps with the first team, he's not interested in making wholesale changes with two games remaining, replica christian louboutin which sounds like to us that he's NFL Jerseys Free Shipping committed to starter David Watford the rest of the way.
