the league. The trip to Hawaii was booked before the coaches were hired, but Wisconsins Greg Gard and T Antworten

CLEVELAND -- There are rebuilding projects and then there are the Cleveland Browns, a floundering franchise currently on the wrong end of the NFLs food chain.Fixing the Browns is a daunting task, some might argue an impossible one. But Hue Jackson, who has gotten a second head-coaching gig after a five-year wait, believes hes just the man for the job.Ive bit off the apple, he said.Yeah, and its pretty rotten.The Browns havent been relevant in years. With just two winning seasons and one playoff appearance since 1999, theyve spent more time shuffling in front offices, coaches and starting quarterbacks -- theyre on No. 25 in 17 seasons -- than anything else and there is little reason to think the 2016 season will be any different.Dont tell that to Jackson, who went 8-8 with Oakland in 2011 and is convinced better days are ahead for the brown and orange.Jackson oozes optimism, even if he knows deep down that Clevelands return to respectability wont take place without hard work, patience and some luck. Hes accepted that Clevelands new front office of analytical thinkers must gut the framework of the Browns roster before any true development can occur.Jackson must now balance the progress he sees in young players with results on the scoreboard.Its hard, said the 50-year-old Jackson, who spent the past two seasons as Cincinnatis offensive coordinator. Its really hard and thats one thing that is new for me. Theres a certain result that you are expecting and youve seen and you want to accomplish all the time. But Ive learned that theres a process and Im in the process, the beginning stages of it, but I also know myself well enough to know that were going to win.When thats going to be, I dont know the answer to that, but I know were going to win.Clevelands success this season will hinge on whether quarterback Robert Griffin III can revive his career with the Browns following a freefall with Washington. With Jacksons urging after he worked out the 26-year-old QB, the Browns signed RG3 to a two-year, $15 million contract -- a low-risk, high-reward investment that could accelerate the Browns reconstruction or force the team to use a high draft pick next year on a quarterback.From his days with the Raiders, Jackson learned he cant do it alone. It takes a village to raise a team, and that no matter how hard he work, how he stays in his office pouring over a game plan or how many times he shows a rookie wide receiver how to run the proper route, things arent going to go according to plan.Youve got to have the wherewithal to deal with that, said Jackson, the Browns fifth coach since 2010. Some people can and some people cant. I understand that youre not going to win them all and youre not going to lose them all, but somewhere in the middle. But hopefully you win more than you lose.As they embark on whats expected to another rough season, here are five more things to watch with the Browns:DIFFERENT GRIFFIN: He showed flashes of his former speedy self in training camp, but Griffin is a far cry from the player whose scintillating skills electrified the league as a rookie in 2012. He can still throw the deep ball, but the Browns need Griffin to be accurate on those intermediate throws and pick up first downs when flushed from the pocket.GORDON WAITS: Perhaps the most perplexing player in football, wide receiver Josh Gordon will sit out the first four games serving his latest drug suspension. The former Pro Bowler has said all the right things about staying clean to this point, and now the Browns have to trust hell be true to his word until hes eligible.Gordon has been suspended for 27 of Clevelands last 32 games.MONEYBALL: The recent release of linebacker Paul Kruger (30) and trade of three-time Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee (31) crystallized the front offices intent to make the Browns younger while acquiring assets. Cleveland is stockpiling draft picks -- the team currently has two first- and second-round picks in 2017 -- to revamp its roster.YOUNG AND WRECKLESS: Rookie defensive linemen Emmanuel Ogbah and Carl Nassib will have prominent roles this season under coordinator Ray Horton, who loves to blitz and blitz some more. Nassib, who led the nation with 15 1/2 sacks last season at Penn State, had an impressive preseason.NO FAVORS: Clevelands schedule is brutal with five road games in the first seven weeks and no bye until Dec. 4. Making matters worse, one of those two home games is Tom Bradys return from his four-game Deflategate suspension and the Patriots QB just may take out some pent-up frustrations against Commissioner Roger Goodell against the Browns.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Brett Favre Jersey . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. Garrett Bradbury Womens Jersey . The International Olympic Committee released the official list of bid cities on Friday after the deadline for applications had passed. The candidates -- all previously announced in their own countries -- are: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; Lviv, Ukraine; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm. http://www.thevikingsshoponline.com/Youth-John-Randle-Vikings-Jersey/ . The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. Adrian Peterson Vikings Jersey . Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists. Chris Doleman Womens Jersey . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. The trip to Hawaii was booked before the coaches were hired, but Wisconsins Greg Gard and Tennessees Rick Barnes will accept the challenge that comes with playing in the Maui Invitational.Ninth-ranked Wisconsin (2-1) will meet Tennessee (1-1) in the opening game of the eight-team tournament on Monday afternoon.The Badgers will likely fall in the rankings after a 79-67 loss to Creighton last week, but they bounced back to defeat Chicago State 69-51 before heading to the islands.Vito Brown scored 12 points in the uneven showing. Brown and Ethan Happ were a combined 9-of-13 from the field while Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig and Zak Showalter shot 4-of-22.We will continue to work and the guys will get better, Gard said. We got a little experience and now we have something to draw back on. We will practice in Maui and we are better based on our experiences this season. What we look for is taking a step forward each day.After 14 seasons as an assistant at the school, Gard was named interim head coach last December when Bo Ryan retired in the middle of the season. The 45-year old led the Badgers to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament to earn the job on a full-time basis.Wisconsin is one of three ranked teams in the tournament along with fourth-ranked Oregon and No. 5 North Carolina.The Badgers are led by Koenig with 15.7 points per game Hayes averages 11.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game. Hayes is shooting 38.7 percent after shooting 36.8 percent last season while Kooenig is clicking at 42.dddddddddddd5 percent.Tennessee was upset 82-69 in its opener against Chattanooga before bouncing back to defeat Appalachian State 103-94 to start off Barnes second season at the school.Robert Hubbs III scored 16 points and six players reached double figures as the Volunteers scored 21 straight points in the first half and avoided their first 0-2 start since 1965-66.I thought we were much more aggressive offensively taking the shots that we want to take, Barnes said. I thought that part was good. We still made so many young mistakes that you cant make.Tennessee has a tough path as one of five unranked teams in Maui. If it beats Wisconsin, it could face No. 4 Oregon in the second round to possibly meet No. 5 North Carolina in the title game.Its always good to get your feet wet going and playing against teams like that, theyre all well coached and theyre all talented, so were looking forward to those games, Tennessee freshman guard Jordan Bone said.Bone is one of five players scoring in double figured with a team-high 14 points per game. Freshman guard Lamonte Turner and Hubbs III are each averaging 13.5 points per game.Freshman forward Grant Williams is at 10.5 points while sophomore forward Kyle Alexander is at 10.0.We have to get better on the defensive side. But I feel like we can score the ball really well, Bone said. ' ' '
