ANN ARBOR, Mich. Matt Duchene Jersey . -- Michigan is proud of its 928 victories, the most in major college football, and a Big Ten-best 42 conference titles.The Wolverines, though, have not won a Big Ten championship in 12 years -- their longest stretch without one since falling short between 1950 and 1964 titles.We dont really talk about the drought too much, defensive end Chris Wormley said. We just talk about trying to win a Big Ten championship and a national championship and thinking big about what we want to accomplish this season.In the Big Ten opener for both teams, No. 4 Michigan (3-0) will host Penn State (2-1) on Saturday.The Wolverines need to win their first of nine conference games to move a step closer to their goal. Theyre expected to win by nearly three touchdowns after taking the first three games easily against Colorado, Central Florida and Hawaii.Here are some things to watch when the Nittany Lions visit the Big House:DELAYED DEBUT: Jourdan Lewis, one of Michigans top players, is expected to start at cornerback after missing the first three games with an undisclosed injury. The Wolverines will welcome the second-team All-American back to the lineup to help cut down on big plays. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh praised Lewis for the way he has dealt with the nagging injury.The guy has been a stud, a real stud in everything hes done, he said.LACKING LINEBACKERS: Penn State has lost three starting linebackers to injury, including Nyeem Wartman-White, who hurt his right knee against Temple and has a second straight season-ending injury. Brandon Smith, a walk-on, has made the most of his opportunity to play. Nittany Lions coach James Franklin said White played 57 snaps last week after playing just three in his career.Hes a great example of you never know in life when opportunity is going to knock professionally, personally, Franklin said.The inexperienced linebackers will face quite a test, trying to defend tight end Jake Butt.PIVOTAL PLAYS: Michigan has had success getting offenses off the field, letting opponents convert just 4 of 38 third downs, the best success rate in the FBS. The Nittany Lions, meanwhile, have converted a Big Ten-low 27 percent of their third downs on offense. Franklin said what happens before third down is the key factor.First and second down kind of tells the story for both teams, Franklin said. Tells the story for their defense. Tells the story for our offense.BALL SECURITY: Nittany Lions quarterback Trace McSorley has shown some promise in his first three starts, but has lost three fumbles and thrown two interceptions.Weve had multiple turnovers in each game and its something we need to cut out, McSorley said.GUESSING GAME: Harbaugh chose to start quarterback Wilton Speight ahead of John OKorn and Shane Morris, but he has played both backups in part to give opponents one more player to prepare for.Its a good thing to let your opponent know that a lot of things are options, Harbaugh said.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org-----This version corrects to identify a Penn State linebacker as Brandon Smith. Dion Phaneuf Jersey .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. Jean-Gabriel Pageau Jersey . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. http:///...zza-senators-jersey/ JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The laser machines that have been tracing shots at PGA Tour events for more than a decade were getting old and needed to be replaced. That led tour officials to ask if there was a better method to collect data.The answer was found in sophisticated video cameras.It started with small cameras attached to poles on the sides of three greens at PGA Tour events during a testing phase toward the end of last season. As 2016 ends this week, cameras are being used on six greens at Sea Island for the RSM Classic.It would be easy to buy new lasers, said Steve Evans, the tours senior vice president of information systems. But would there be another way to collect data? And could we be collecting more than were collecting? What about using video cameras to translate what comes through video into data?ShotLink involves mapping golf courses and using lasers to show where each shot lands. That information generally allows for distance (how far off the tee, how close to the hole) and direction (fairway, rough, bunkers, greens).The cameras bring motion into play, particularly with putting. It will allow for statistics on the percentage of putts that break left-to-right or right-to-left, whether the putt is downhill or uphill.From a data perspective, we can learn if uphill is harder or downhill is easier, Evans said.Evans said the cameras also can correct flaws with projected putting paths because it eliminates the assumption on how hard the ball must be struck.With this system, lets say its a 30-foot putt. Well know a foot off the putter how fast the ball is moving, Evans said. Its gives us a much more accurate projection on where it will end.With the cameras installed only at the green, there are some limitations. The cameras can pick up the golf ball only as it approaches the green. Evans said if it proves worthwhile, cameras could be installed from the tees and along the fairways.By tracking a ball in motion instead of where it comes to a rest, statistics would be available showing how much a ball rolls once its on the green. That would relate to the trajectory of the ball in its approach.Evans said digital and broadcast media are likely to get the most of the information, along with publications that go heavy on analytics. It figures to be useful for players, too, allowing them to spot tendencies in their games.All that feedback and analysis on the golf course is nice to have, Rickie Fowler said. We look at statistics and stuff a lot more. Joe (Skovron), my caddie, does it for feedback on areas that we may have been working on to see the improvement and then what areas need improvement. Some guys use it more than others.The tour hopes to have it in place in the first part of 2017, at which point Evans said it will work with broadcast partners and how to make the best use of the data.---WILLET & WESTWOOD: Masters champion Danny Willett decided not to play the World Cup next week in Australia to keep his back from acting up.That decision also knocked out his partner, Lee Westwood.Willett was able to pick his partner as the highest-ranked player from England. When he withdrew, the spot first was offered to Justin Rose (he declined as he rests his back) and then to Chris Wood, who accepted. Wood was able to take his own partner, and he went with Andy Sullivan.Willett said he thinks Westwood stilll should have been able to go. Tom Pyatt Jersey. .When the guys have booked their flights and done their things, I think its potentially not quite right just because one guy pulls out that it means the other guy has to kind of withdraw without having a say in it, Willett said Tuesday. I think you then just go down the list and see which guy potentially then wants to play. With such short notice, I dont see why they have kind of completely switched it around and made it two brand-new guys.Willett said he has apologized to Westwood. They belong to the same management group.Westy has been pretty good about it and stuff like that, he said. So yeah, it was a shame, really, how it ended because we were both looking forward to going down there and pairing up.---OGILVYS PRAISE: Jordan Spieth is playing the Australian Open this week and is in the same group as Geoff Ogilvy and U.S. Amateur champion Curtis Luck.Ogilvy loves the draw, mainly because of Spieth.More than anyone, he seems to always sign for one or two (shots) less than you think he should have, Ogilvy said. Thats always the sign of a great player. Tiger was like that. He always seemed to sign for five less than he should have. Jordan is one of those guys who gets the best out of his round almost every time you play with him.---FATHER AND SON: Jack Nicklaus has been playing the PNC Father-Son Challenge so long that his son is older than seven major champions in the field.Nicklaus and his oldest son, 55-year-old Jackie, will be among 20 teams on Dec. 10-11 at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida. Its the one tournament Nicklaus wont miss. He is playing for the 15th time and calls it one of the most anticipated events of the year for me.I was looking at the incredible field they have assembled again this year, and I see several fathers you are actually younger than my son, Nicklaus said. At a combined age of 130 years, is it too late for us to ask for shots?Among the newcomers is John Daly, who will be playing with his 13-year-old son who goes by Little John.---DIVOTS: Two players are not defending their titles this week. Padraig Harrington (Indonesia Open) qualified for the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. Matt Jones (Australian Open), who lost his full PGA Tour card last year, is playing the RSM Classic at Sea Island. ... Paul Levy was elected president of the PGA of America last week during the 100th annual meeting in New York. Levy is president of club operations and development for Sunrise Company and the CEO and general manager of Toscana Country Club in the California desert. He had served as vice president and secretary over the previous four years. ... Luke List has broken par in 15 of his 16 rounds in the new PGA Tour season. His worst finish is a tie for 26th, and he had a runner-up in Mississippi. ... Kevin Chappell, who had a Nike equipment deal, has PXG irons and wedges in his bag this week at Sea Island.---STAT OF THE WEEK: The European Tour will have a one-week break before starting its new season.---FINAL WORD: Ive still won twice and finished second in a major. If thats a valley, then its going to be a lot of fun when we get back up to a peak. -- Jordan Spieth on his 2016 season. Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
