call, I was really taken back, Boras said.Fielder wa Antworten

NORMAN, Okla. -- Quarterback Baker Mayfield and wide receiver Dede Westbrook have garnered most of the attention for No. 7 Oklahoma this season, yet the offensive line and the running game carried the load in the 56-28 win at West Virginia that gives the Sooners a chance to clinch the conference title outright with a win over Oklahoma State on Dec. 3.The Sooners rushed for 313 yards in cold, wet weather and controlled the clock for nearly 40 minutes against the Mountaineers. Left tackle Orlando Brown, left guard Ben Powers, center Erick Wren, right guard Dru Samia and right tackle Bobby Evans were the starters, and reserve lineman Jonathan Alvarez and fullback Dimitri Flowers were singled out by coach Bob Stoops as having played well.Stoops said the offensive line, including Flowers, was a collective offensive MVP against the Mountaineers. He said West Virginia threw a lot of looks at the offensive line, but his unit consistently made the right blocks.Those guys did a great job sifting it out, Stoops said. They (West Virginia) have their plays where its one yard, two yard, catch you in the backfield a time or two, but overall, they (the line) really worked through it really well.Oklahoma (9-2, 8-0 Big 12) has dominated on the ground for much of the season. The Sooners average 228.1 yards rushing per game, a total that would be the schools second-best total since 1991 if it holds up. In conference play, those rushing numbers jump to a league-best 246.8 yards per game. The ground game has balanced the passing game, which ranks first in efficiency and second in yards per game in Big 12 play.Brown is the star of the unit. His father, Orlando Sr., played in the NFL for the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens. The younger Brown, a 6-foot-8, 340-pound sophomore, projects to be an early-round pick when he comes out.Orlando, every week has had a winning grade if not a great grade, and physical, great protecting, Stoops said. Hes doing all the things you want him to do. But you know, what I appreciate about him more than anything is his intensity and leadership.Then, of course, there are the two running backs. Joe Mixon has rushed for 1,084 yards in 10 games and averages 6.9 yards per carry. Samaje Perine has pounded out 735 yards in eight games and has 10 rushing touchdowns.Against West Virginia, Perine ran for 160 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries and Mixon added 147 yards and a score on 24 attempts.Youve got to give Samaje and Joe some great credit, Stoops said. There are some guys that come up to get them, and they can run through a tackle, stiff arm a guy, slide away from a guy. They get a lot of yards after theyre hit as well.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/CliffBruntAP .---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .Christian McCaffrey Womens Jersey .

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.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Prince Fielder wiped away tears, pointed to his two sons sitting next to him and talked about being in big league clubhouses since he was their age.Still wearing a neck brace 12 days after a second cervical fusion, the burly 32-year-old Fielder wept Wednesday as he said health issues were forcing him to end his 12-season career.To not be able to play, its going to be tough, said Fielder, once one of the most durable players in the majors.His sons -- one who turns 12 next week and the other 10 -- sat with him at the podium, mostly with their heads down and also shedding tears. They have been regulars at the ballpark with their dad, much like he often was with his father, Cecil, a slugger who played 13 seasons for five teams.The kids actually love baseball more than Prince. It was a sad moment, teammate Elvis Andrus said. You rarely see him like that.All of Fielders teammates, along with Rangers coaches and staff, filled the interview room to support him.When the Rangers acquired him in November 2013 for second baseman Ian Kinsler, the first baseman had played at least 157 games every year since 2006, and appeared in 809 of 810 possible games the five seasons But Fielder was limited to 289 games in Texas because of two neck surgeries in just more than two years.Even though I know I struggled personally this year, this was actually the most fun Ive ever had and the best Ive ever felt mentally about baseball, Fielder said. Thats the only thing that really hurts about not being able to play is that my brain was really good, with my body, just, you know, it just gave out.Fielder will finish his career with 319 career homers, the same number that his father had playing one more season but 141 fewer games. The only other father-son duo with more than 300 homers each is Bobby and Barry Bonds.After being limited to 42 games in his Rangers debut in 2014, Fielder talked about how much he missed baseball and returned last season with a revived passion for the game.Primarily a designated hitter in 2015, Fielder hit .305 with 23 homers and 98 RBI in 158 games, though midway through the season again started feeling symptoms related to neck issues. He then struggled throughout this year, hitting a career-low .dddddddddddd.212 with eight homers and 44 RBI in 89 games until finally getting an exam three weeks ago while the team was in Los Angeles.Scott Boras, Fielders agent, said they figured it was just a precautionary exam and that maybe he would spend some time on the disabled list, but nothing like this.An MRI showed a herniation between Fielders C4 and C5 disks, just above where he first had surgery in May 2014. Doctors were already recommending that he quit playing before the second surgery July 29.To just suddenly have the lights turned out like that ... were pretty steadied and pretty prepared, but to get that phone call, I was really taken back, Boras said.Fielder was only two years into a $214 million, nine-year contract when he got to Texas. That guaranteed deal goes through 2020, for $24 million each season.While no longer playing, Fielder didnt formally retire, meaning the Rangers would have him on the 60-day disabled list during the regular season but would have to add him to their 40-man roster each offseason until the end of the contract.The Tigers owe Texas $6 million a year as part of their 2013 deal. The Rangers are responsible for the remaining $18 million, though about half of their liability could be covered by disability insurance.Over 1,611 major league games with the Brewers (2005-11), Tigers (2012-13) and Rangers (2014-16), Fielder was a six-time All-Star who hit .283 with 1,028 RBI.When the game is taken away from you like that, I dont think that its easy to handle, 37-year-old Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre said. Its easier when you yourself say, `You know what, I had enough. Im going to go home and be with my family. But when you go home because you cant do it anymore, thats different.Fielder said that when he gets the brace off -- This is killing me, this is terrible, he said -- he will be back with the AL West leaders.Theyve got work to do, Ive got some cheerleading to do, Fielder said. And hopefully win the World Series and pop the champagne.---AP Sports Writer Schuyler Dixon contributed to this report. ' ' '
