to the minor leagues. In the 2010-2011 offseason, Encar from love520's blog

STILLWATER, Okla. Cheap Jonathan Villar Jersey . -- The officiating mistake was a doozy -- and it cannot be fixed. The play that followed was even more astonishing.One of the oddest endings imaginable left Oklahoma State stunned and Central Michigan celebrating.A misinterpreted rule extended the game when it should have been over and allowed the Chippewas to score a wild, winning touchdown on a Hail Mary and lateral -- yes, both! -- that covered half the field for a 30-27 upset of No. 22 Oklahoma State on Saturday.Oklahoma State (1-1) tried to kill the final four seconds of the game by throwing away the ball on fourth down, but the Cowboys were penalized for intentional grounding, which is a loss-of-down penalty. Rules state that the game cannot end on an accepted live-ball penalty, referee Tim ODey of the Mid-American Conference, CMUs league, said.He later admitted there is a situation in which the game can end on an infraction.Theres an exception to the rule that says if enforcement of the foul involves a loss of down, then that brings the game to an end, ODey told a pool reporter.ODey said after conferring with NCAA rules committee secretary Rogers Redding after the game, the crew determined the extension should not have happened.But the final result stood. Article 3b of the NCAA rulebook states: When the referee declares that the game is ended, the score is final.Despite the error, this will not change the outcome of the contest, Bill Carollo, the NCAAs coordinator of football officials, said in a statement released by the MAC.That did not satisfy Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder.We had conversations with everyone that could help us understand the situation and do something about the outcome. We were told the result is final and there is nothing we can do about it, Holder said in a statement. In my mind, it is incomprehensible that a misapplication of the rules after time has expired cant be corrected.Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a text to the AP: The game is final and errors can only be corrected during the course of the game. Very unfortunate.Corey Willis scored the winning touchdown after grabbing a lateral from Jesse Kroll at the Oklahoma State 12-yard line and fighting his way into the end zone.Oklahoma State (1-1) thought it had won when Mason Rudolph threw away the ball on fourth down as the clock expired. But it backfired after the officials conferred; they assessed an intentional grounding penalty and gave Central Michigan another play.Thats a tough one. Just so everyone knows, I was the one who called the passing play, said OSU coach Mike Gundy. To be honest with you, I never even thought of intentional grounding being called at that point in the game. As much time as we put into end-of-game situations, that never really crossed my mind. Unfortunately, thats a difficult way to learn a hard lesson.Cooper Rush lofted up a Hail Mary pass that hit Kroll just inside the 10. As Kroll was being taken down, he pitched it back to Willis, who cut across the field and barely managed to score while being dragged down.To be honest, I actually had a missed assignment on that. I wasnt supposed to be right there, but it all worked for the better, Willis said.Coach John Bonamego said: Its an improbable finish, but its a situation that we practiced and rehearsed. We were able to execute and pull out the win.Central Michigan fans might have been having flashbacks to the Bahamas Bowl from two seasons ago, when the Chips covered almost the length of the field on a long pass and lateral play to make it a one-point game with no time left against Western Kentucky. In that fabulous finish, Central Michigan went for 2 and the win and did not convert. This time around, the Chippewas were able to run off with the victory.SYMPATHY FROM THE DEVILSOklahoma State fans were livid, and they can now relate to Duke fans who watched their team lose a game on a multilateral kickoff return touchdown to Miami last season that the ACC later said should not have counted. Or maybe go back to 1990, when officials mistakenly gave Colorado five downs to score the game-winning touchdown against Missouri in the waning seconds.Central Michigan is unlikely to go on to win a national title the way those Buffaloes did, but it will still go down as one of the biggest wins in school history.THE TAKEAWAYCentral Michigan: Never quit on the Chippewas.Oklahoma State: The Cowboys will rightfully be upset by the bad call, but Gundy will be questioned for throwing on his final play.POLL IMPLICATIONSOklahoma State: How do AP voters deal with this? The Cowboys rightfully had the game won. They also allowed CMU to play them toe-to-toe at home when Oklahoma State was a big favorite. So maybe the Cowboys dont drop for the loss as much as for the underwhelming performance?Central Michigan: This is no way to get ranked.UP NEXTCentral Michigan: The Chippewas return home to face UNLV.Oklahoma State: The Cowboys play their third straight home game, hosting Pittsburgh. Cheap Jhoulys Chacin Jersey . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Wholesale Brewers Jerseys . 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. .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner.TORONTO - R.A. Dickey is still searching for the winning formula at Rogers Centre as he prepares to make his 13th home start of the season on Sunday. "I think I possess the tools to do it here," said Dickey. "I just might have to utilize some things that I seldom have to utilize on the road. I dont think it would cause me out of who I am. It just means I have to make an adjustment and this game is all about adjustments." As detailed below, Dickeys home and road splits are out of whack. HOME: 5.97 ERA, .842 opponents OPS, 18 home runs against. ROAD: 3.08 ERA, .666 opponents OPS, 7 home runs against. "In particular, in this park, for whatever reason, my elevated knuckleball seems to not have the movement that it does in other places," said Dickey. "Just lowering my sights, trying to get my knuckleball kind of to dance lower than I ordinarily would. So thats just release point. Thats a mechanical adjustment that shouldnt be very difficult to make but just being conscientious that I need to do that in this park." Dickey faced the Athletics in his second-to-last start at the Coliseum. In that game he threw six innings and allowed two runs, though neither was earned. He didnt get a decision in a game the Blue Jays eventually won 5-2 in 10 innings. REYES PLAYING THROUGH PAIN Jose Reyes has started each of the Blue Jays 39 games since his return from a severely sprained left ankle. "My ankle is still bothering me a little bit," said Reyes. "Its not quite there 100 per cent yet. Thats something that maybe I can get 100 per cent in the offseason with some rest. But for right now, Im able to play like that." Reyes says his left ankle is noticeably weaker than his right anklee. Cheap Paul Molitor Jersey. Its still sore and feels, at times, stiff. He says hes most affected moving to his left for ground balls and when hes forced to leap. While Reyes initially experienced pain rounding the bases, he says thats no longer an issue. LAWRIE WORKING WITH EDDIE Much has been made of Brett Lawries friendship with veteran and team leader Mark DeRosa but when it comes to hitting the 23-year-old picks the brain of Edwin Encarnacion. "Ive turned more my book towards, in that department, Eddie," said Lawrie. "I go with Edwin Encarnacion. We look at video together. We do our thing." Lawrie could do a whole lot worse than Encarnacion. Encarnacion, whos become one of the games elite power hitters, is on pace for a second consecutive season with 40-plus home runs and a better than .900 OPS. However, success didnt immediately find him. After three productive seasons with the Reds, Encarnacion was acquired by the Blue Jays, for Scott Rolen, at the trade deadline in 2009. The next season, he was designated for assignment and outrighted to the minor leagues. In the 2010-2011 offseason, Encarnacion was lost to the Athletics on waivers but when Oakland didnt tender him a contract, the Blue Jays brought him back. It was in 2011, after he was moved from third base to designated hitter/first base, that Encarnacions numbers spiked significantly. PEREZS SEASON IS OVER Reliever Juan Perez, 34, wont pitch again in 2013 and is questionable for next season after tearing the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow in Friday nights game against Oakland. Perez requires Tommy John surgery. In 19 appearances this season, all in relief, Perez posted a 3.69 ERA and averaged 9.64 strikeouts per nine innings. Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free ShippingJerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
