These are the tough weeks for Alabama -- in a manner of speaking.Coming off a thrilling 48-43 comeback win over Ole Miss, Alabamas players must refocus and avoid any type of letdown on Saturday when the Crimson Tide host Kent State at noon ET at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.Its human nature to let off the gas against lesser opponents, but Alabama coach Nick Saban doesnt want to allow that to happen.Saban doesnt want top-ranked Alabama to fall victim to some of the pitfalls that trap other ranked teams in these types of games.The Mid-American Conference is sort of known for being able to come up against really good teams and come up with some wins, Saban said, citing arguably last weeks biggest upset and Central Michigans upset of Oklahoma State the week before as examples of what can happen to teams when they dont focus.Obviously, North Dakota State beating Iowa, which is a ranked team, this happens every week, and it happens because the teams that they are playing dont have the proper respect.They dont prepare correctly. They dont play very well and the other team has players, too, that are very capable. They need to be respected, and we need to focus on what we need to do to get better as a team and play to our standard, and that certainly is going to be the message for this week.Kent State comes into the game off a 27-7 victory over Monmouth, its first win after losses to Penn State 33-13 and North Carolina A&T 39-36 in four overtimes the first two weeks.The Flashes have struggled on offense, producing only 897 yards rushing and passing in their three outings for an average of less than 300 yards a game. But they also have held their opponents to an average of just 320 yards a game in total offense.Coach Paul Haynes says his players wont be intimidated as they prepare to meet the nations No. 1 team.We are just going to work on our execution, said Haynes. Weve been to places like Ohio State and LSU, so well be all right.What Saban wants to avoid is a duplication of the effort of both his players and coaching staff in the second week of the season when the Tide beat Western Kentucky 38-10. Saban went as far as to say that he was embarrassed at how the team played in that game.Alabamas leadership group is being more vocal this week in hopes of keeping everyone locked in and focused as to not disappoint Saban and the fans.There are no downshifts, Crimson Tide linebacker Ryan Anderson said. Were going to practice this week like were preparing for the national championship. Thats the only way were going to get better as a team.You cant downshift and then pick it back up. You just cant do it.Saban expressed some unhappiness with the way the Tide finished its win over Ole Miss. After outscoring the Rebels 45-6 over one stretch to take a 48-30 lead, the Tide gave up two quick scores to let the Rebels back within five points.All these things catch up with you if you dont fix them, correct them, focus on every play and get things executed properly, that leads to a lot of problems, he said. You dont ever want to beat yourself, and when you do things like that you give yourself an opportunity to beat yourself.Its one thing to get beat physically -- you cant cover them, you cant block them upfront -- thats different and that may happen someday. All this other stuff, you beat yourself, and that is what we have to get fixed.The game against Kent State does have one distinctive aspect to it. Kent State is Sabans alma mater, and the coach recalled a conversation with his wife about that angle.I was telling Terry this morning, I watch these games and these tapes and look out on the field and I played there, Saban said. And I cant remember too many games that I played in there.I guess Im getting old.Saban is 2-0 against his alma mater. In addition to the 48-7 win over Kent State his Alabama team recorded in 2011, Saban also owns a 28-14 win over Kent State in 1990 when he was at Toledo.

LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. http://www.sanfranciscogiantsjerseyscheap.com/?tag=gregor-blanco-jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006.

ATLANTA -- Jason Days PGA Tour season officially ended two days earlier than expected, when he withdrew from the Tour Championship due to a lingering back injury midway through the second round on Friday afternoon.The injury is a strained ligament in his lower right back with a muscle spasm. He withdrew as a precautionary measure, read a statement from Days management team.It is the same back injury that forced Day, the worlds No. 1-ranked player, to withdraw from the BMW Championship two weeks ago.I put the tee in the ground at the BMW Championship, and my back went out, Day explained earlier this week. Last time it went out, I changed a diaper. So its nothing where I go and physically make a move at it during a swing and my back goes out. It literally is from the smallest things -- picking up a pillow, picking up something off the ground, or just moving the wrong way.Day was playing the eighth hole at East Lake Golf Club when he withdrew on Friday. After hitting his drive into the water, he took a drop, tthen hit driver off the deck before calling for medical attention and leaving the course.ddddddddddddAs the fourth-ranked player in the FedEx Cup, Day could have earned the season-long title and $10 million first-place prize with a victory this week. He will remain the games top-ranked player, no matter what, despite second-ranked Dustin Johnson?being in contention heading into the weekend rounds.If theres a silver lining to Days timing, its that he wasnt expected to tee it up competitively again for at least two months. The next two events on his schedule are believed to be the Australian Open (Nov. 17-20), followed by the World Cup of Golf (Nov. 24-27), both in his native Australia.His 2016-17 season officially concludes with victories at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-Dell Match Play and The Players Championship. He finished in the top-10 in 10 of his 20 PGA Tour starts.
