    Even as a former player I sometimes forget how important football is to the players and how important winning is to all players, especially a championship. Cheap USA Soccer Jerseys . When you are at the stadium watching the individual introductions you cant help but notice the watery eyes of just about every player on both teams in the moments before they run on to the field to play in the Grey Cup. It is a moment. It is impossible to determine what is going through a mans mind that would make him cry in such an enjoyable event but there it was in perfect jumbotron colour - player after player almost losing control as their name is about to be introduced in front of 50,000 people in stadium and millions on TV. If anything, you would want the opposite to happen, to stay in control and be calm and focused. Yet 24 players could not hide their emotion and it was so evident how important the moment was to them in a most personal way. In an athletic world dominated by a desire for positive revenue streams it was the tears of pre-game that was the moment for me. Nobody can tell me that money was more important than winning the 2014 Grey Cup to those so directly involved. The eyes showed the truth. For Calgary, Bo Levi Mitchell took a step from good to great in this game and that was tangible. His calmness under stress was so evident all game and his physical skills were as well. Dave Dickenson as an offensive coordinator had a good day. How do you have a good day as an offensive coordinator? You see your plan unfold in front of you in a detailed way. By using Jon Cornish as a possibility and not as a reality it just seemed to be enough to open any - and at some moments - all opportunities down field. Dickenson was a great player, is a great coordinator and may have the opportunity to be a great head coach in the near future. His mentor John Hufnagel has trained and influenced him well. With the Ticats so many of their missed opportunities were taken away in many cases by their own actions. The penalty on the return by speedy B Brandon Banks had to be called. If it had not been called that official could lose his job and credibility. I detest football penalties and the poetic moment for Hamilton would have been something historic but the right thing happened, however painful. In the end it was a good Grey Cup that was sold out contrary to reports of the opposite. And in the end the best team did win, with a record 17 wins and only three losses. The Calgary Stampeders now get a Grey Cup ring, and they earned it. Cheap USA Soccer Jerseys 2018 . General Manager Sam Presti said the three-time All-Star had knee swelling that would not subside, and the procedure was intended to solve the problem. He said doctors determined that a loose stitch was to blame for the swelling, that Westbrooks lateral meniscus has healed properly and the procedure was successful. Cheap USA Soccer World Cup Jerseys . Hall joined Bengals teammates for a voluntary workout on Monday. Hes got his mobility back and is on schedule to be ready for the season. CINCINNATI - Bengals cornerback Leon Hall is happy with his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon and expects to be ready for the start of training camp in July. DAYTON, Ohio -- Dont get discouraged, coach Cuonzo Martin told his Volunteers during those long NCAA tournament timeouts. Instead, hang in there and figure a way to pull it out. They went about it a most improbable way. With forward Jarnell Stokes using his 280 pounds to dominate inside and a highly regarded defence finally locking in, Tennessee pulled off the first amazing comeback of the NCAA tournament. Stokes opened overtime with a three-point play that put Tennessee ahead to stay, and the Volunteers defence shut down Iowa in overtime for a 78-65 victory on Wednesday night, finishing off the First Four with an exclamation point. "I told our guys weve been through everything this season, keep your composure down the stretch," said Martin, who got his first NCAA tournament win in his third season at Tennessee. "Find ways to win the ball game." The Vols (22-12) head to Raleigh, N.C., where theyll play sixth-seeded Massachusetts on Friday in the Midwest Regional. They left Dayton with a lot of momentum -- six wins in their last seven games. "We did a tremendous job toward the end of fighting back," said Jordan McRae, who had 20 points. "We did a great job on our defence. For us to hold them like we did was a great job." Tennessee didnt lead until Antonio Bartons 3-pointer put the Vols up 59-57 with 3:05 left regulation. There were five lead changes before McRae missed a jumper missed at the buzzer, leaving it tied at 64. No surprise that Barton made the big shot. The senior transfer is the only Volunteer with any significant NCAA tournament experience, having appeared in three of them with Memphis. Stokes three-point play in overtime was the key moment in his 18-point, 13-rebound performance, putting the Volunteers ahead to stay. It was his 20th double-double this season, the most by a Volunteer since Bernard King had 22 of them in 1976-77. Tennessees highly regarded defence took it from there, holding Iowa (21-13) to one free throw the rest of the way. The Hawkeyes missed all eight of their shots from the field in overtime. "You go tthrough anything so often -- being in those games, being in those situations -- were a much better team the last eight games," Martin said. Cheap World Cup Jerseys 2018. "Guys stepped up and made plays." It was a tough ending to a long and stressful day for Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. He started the day in Iowa with his teenage son, Patrick, who had surgery to remove a thyroid tumour. His assistant coaches led the Hawkeyes through a meeting and their final practice, and McCaffery was back by game time. Martin and the Volunteers hugged him after the game and wished him well. "Their players hugged me and told me they were thinking of me," McCaffery said. "I was really impressed with their guys and the program Cuonzo has built there." Adam Woodbury had 16 points for Iowa, which got a subpar performance from its leading scorer. Roy Devyn Marble was only 3 of 15 from the field for seven points, matching his season low. "I dont think we ran out of gas," Woodbury said. "We made some key mistakes down the stretch and that hurt us." The ending will sting the Hawkeyes for a long time. They were struggling as they headed into their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2006, losing six of their previous seven games. Defence was the biggest problem, often letting them down in the second half. They opened the game in promising fashion, switching from man-to-man to zone to half-court traps. It worked. They got off to a 16-4 lead and were still ahead 29-26 at halftime. They kept swatting away the Volunteers runs until the last few minutes of regulation. Marbles basket tied it at 64, and he was guarding McCrae when he missed his fade-away shot at the buzzer sending it to overtime. Tennessee got an at-large bid by closing the season with a defensive flourish. The Volunteers won five straight before losing to No. 1 Florida 56-49 in the Southeastern Conference tournament. They gave up 61.1 points per game, second only to Florida in the SEC, and allowed an average of only 47.4 points in the last four games. In overtime, that defence decided it.
