#1 a midseason coaching change re-ignited his play, Pittsburghs ca von corse178 03.04.2019 05:31

Gus Malzahn and Hugh Freeze have been friends for 25 years.They both began their careers as successful high school coaches who advanced through the ranks. Freeze got his first college head coaching job in 2011 at Arkansas State. After one year he got the job at Ole Miss.Who replaced Freeze at Arkansas State? That would be his friend, Gus Malzahn. Malzahn coached there for one year and then became the head coach at Auburn.Now Freeze and Malzahn are both in the SEC West and Saturday will square off for the fourth straight year. The past three meetings have been memorable:2013: Auburn 30, Ole Miss 22 Auburn jumped out to a 20-3 lead and held on to win. The Tigers went on to win the SEC title and play Florida State for the BCS national championship.2014: Auburn 35, Ole Miss 31 Auburn was ranked No. 3 and Ole Miss was No. 4. The game billed as a playoff elimination game and it did not disappoint. Trailing by four points, Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell was tackled at the Auburn one-yard line and fumbled the ball. Auburn recovered to preserve the win. It was a tough, emotional loss for Freeze as Treadwell suffered a season-ending leg injury. It was a sickening way to lose, said Freeze, who was consoled on the field by Malzahn after the game.2015: Ole Miss 27, Auburn 19 Ole Miss racked up 558 yards of total offense, including 381 yards passing from quarterback Chad Kelly to keep its hopes alive in the SEC West. Ole Miss finished 9-3 and went to the Sugar Bowl. Auburn went 6-6 and went to the Birmingham Bowl.Freeze and Malzahn have a standing golf game in Destin, Fla., every year for the SEC Spring meetings. Over the years their conversations have changed.Now that were in the same conference and the same division we dont talk much about football specifics, said Freeze. Its no fun playing friends but I still want to beat him and he wants to beat me.Here are some other key storylines for this Saturday in SEC football: Georgia (4-3, 2-3 SEC) and No. 14 Florida (5-1, 3-1) meet in their annual party down in Jacksonville.It will be Kirby Smarts first trip to Jacksonville as Georgias head coach. The Bulldogs have had a week off to recover from a disappointing 17-16 loss to Vanderbilt on Oct. 15 in Athens.Jacob Eason, Georgias freshman quarterback, will test his skill (and his courage) against the best defense he has ever seen. Florida is No. 2 in the nation in scoring defense (12.0 ppg), passing defense (132.8 ypg) and total defense (252.0 ypg). Kentucky (4-3, 3-2) kept its bowl hopes alive last Saturday with a 51-yard field goal on the last play of the game to beat Mississippi State 40-38. Now the Wildcats go on the road to play a Missouri team (2-5, 0-3) that is really struggling.Last Saturday Missouri scored 45 points, ran 104 plays and gained 629 yards and still lost to Middle Tennessee State 51-45.A victory would put the Wildcats within one win of going to a bowl, which was their stated goal before the beginning of the season. Kentucky finishes the season with Georgia, Tennessee, Austin Peay and Louisville. No. 18 Tennessee (5-2, 2-2) had a week off to heal up from its 49-10 loss to No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 15. Now the Volunteers must regroup as they travel to South Carolina (3-4, 1-4).Tennessees task is simply defined. The Volunteers, who have lost to Texas A&M and Alabama from the SEC West, still have a path to the SEC East championship and a trip to Atlanta. First, the Volunteers have to win their final four conference games with South Carolina, Kentucky (4-3), Missouri (2-5) and Vanderbilt (4-4).Then Tennessee must hope that Florida loses one of its final four SEC games with Georgia, at Arkansas, South Carolina and at LSU. If Tennessee finishes in a 6-2 tie with Florida, the Vols own the tiebreaker with a 38-28 win over the Gators on Sept. 24. Mississippi State had its heart ripped out at Kentucky last Saturday and has now lost three straight games. The last time the Bulldogs lost four straight was 2005.Mississippi State (2-5, 1-3) gets a break from conference action as it hosts Samford (6-1), an FCS team from Birmingham. Samfords only loss this season has come against Chattanooga, the No. 3 rated team in the FCS. Texas A&M (6-1, 4-1) led No. 1 Alabama 14-13 in the third quarter last Saturday but then the Crimson Tide scored 20 unanswered points to win 33-14. But the Aggies arent out of this thing yet. They only have three conference games left with Mississippi State (2-5), Ole Miss (3-4) and LSU (5-2). Win them and Texas A&M will have an outside shot at getting into the four-team playoff. Of course they could still win the SEC West if Alabama loses twice down the stretch.The No. 9 Aggies also take a break from conference play to host New Mexico State (2-5). Cheap Shoes Clearance . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. Discount Shoes Online . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. http://www.shoescheap.us/ . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. Cheap Shoes From China . The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period of the Kings 4-2 road win over Edmonton on Sunday. Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings goal during a scrum.

"Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. After a decade of dominating the NHL, Sidney Crosbys relatively mortal 2014-15 season -- wherein he only finished third in the scoring race, fifth in Hart trophy voting and his team was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs -- raised the question of whether his days as the games best player were coming to an end.Given his slow start to the 2015-16 season, it initially appeared that Crosbys torch was finally being passed. But after a midseason coaching change re-ignited his play, Pittsburghs captain quickly returned to his place as the sports most dangerous offensive weapon. At years end, he was named to the first All-Star team, finished runner-up for the Hart trophy, was seventh in Selke voting (his highest finish of his career) and won the Conn Smythe for leading the Penguins to their second Stanley Cup in the Crosby Era.ddddddddddddWhile last summers reports of his decline have obviously been proved premature, theres a steep road ahead for Crosby. He will be representing Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey against the best players in the world, then leading the cap-strapped Penguins in a tough race against their Metropolitan division rivals, the Washington Capitals, while fending off the rising success of younger talents like Edmontons Connor McDavid in his quest for a third league scoring title. Can he stay on top for one more season? ' ' '
