NORMAN, Okla. Andre Johnson Texans Jersey . -- Its one thing to have a bad game and have to discuss it with dad.Its another when your father was a three-time all-conference defensive lineman at Oklahoma, the very school whose defense you anchored -- or in Jordan Evans case, didnt anchor against Texas Tech. The Sooners gave up 854 yards in a 66-59 victory on Oct. 22, and Scott Evans wasnt happy about Jordans performance at inside linebacker.Father and son watched film together and it was a rough session.Probably one of the hardest things Ive had to do was just with my dad watching that, Jordan Evans said. It was time to reflect on who I was as a person on and off the field. I realized I was the one hurting the team, and I feel like when you can actually look at yourself in the mirror and know that, it makes it really easy to make a change.Evans took out his earrings and shaved off his tight braids, suggestions from dad. He focused more during practice.He also noticed that teammates such as defensive linemen Charles Walker and Matt Dimon , linebacker Tay Evans and running back Daniel Brooks are no longer playing for the Sooners, with medical reasons affecting each case. He realized he was wasting his privilege.My mentality of the game definitely changed out there, he said. Times ticking, you know. Youre not promised tomorrow in life, and youre also not promised another game. So youve got to play like its your last. Just kind of seeing some of the stuff thats happened to some of my teammates, seeing that Im blessed enough that I can keep going -- might as well make it worthwhile.The results have been stunning. Against Kansas, he had 10 tackles and returned an interception 33 yards for a touchdown. Against Baylor, he had nine tackles, two interceptions and two sacks, and was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week. Against West Virginia, he returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown. Hes ready for one more big home game on Senior Day, when the seventh-ranked Sooners play Oklahoma State for the Big 12 title on Saturday.Hes just preparing like a professional now, Oklahoma linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo said. Hes really out there making all the checks, putting everybody in the right spot. Hes stepped up. You all have seen all the sacks and interceptions, but theres way more that goes into that.Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops made it clear that Jordan Evans has been a good player for a long time, and he figured hed snap out of his struggles.In the end, hes definitely been highly productive in the last several weeks and whatever that game was, thats an aberration, Stoops said. That hasnt been how hes played for a long time here. Hes really been a spark for us here these last few weeks.Evans suffered a leg strain on the interception return against West Virginia that put the Sooners up 41-7 early in the third quarter, and the Sooners gave up 21 points without him in the 56-28 victory.Really hurt us when he left the game, Stoops said. With all the pieces weve had missing, hes really been kind of the glue. When he went down, it was tougher to manage we held it together in the fourth quarter toward the end.Evans practiced in a limited capacity on Monday and Tuesday and is expected to play in the Bedlam game against the rival Cowboys.We want to make sure were cautious with him, defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said. Hes played more football than anybody on our team. He understands the game plan and what Oklahoma State is all about. Weve just got to make sure were cautious with him and get him on the field.

Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. Kahale Warring Jersey . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Deandre-Hopkins-Jersey/ . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. SEATTLE -- The Apple Cup is rarely this significant.Sure, the rivalry has gone through plenty of years where either Washington or Washington State had a significant stake in the outcome. But rarely has there been so much riding on this game as there will be Friday when the No. 6 Huskies and the No. 23 Cougars meet for the 109th time.This is just the sixth time both teams are ranked entering their rivalry week. Its also the first time in 35 years that a shot at the Rose Bowl -- at minimum -- will be at stake for the winner.Its a lofty place for both programs and has fans on each side in agreement: this could be the biggest Apple Cup ever.These kids have been all in on like every game, so to say, OK, this ones like . I dont know. I just want them to prepare like they have and go over and compete like they have, which I know they will, Washington coach Chris Petersen said Monday. We know its like all this hard work kind of comes down to this. But its really hard for me to say, like, `OK, now were really all in on this. I just think theyve really been invested this whole year, every game, and I think thats what youve kind of seen. But itll be exciting.Its not as simple as it was 35 years ago when the then-No. 17 Huskies beat the No. 14 Cougars 23-10 in Seattle to claim the Pac-10 title and a spot in the Rose Bowl. The winner on Friday still must win the conference championship game over the Pac-12 South winner to assure themselves of at least a spot in Pasadena.That 1981 game was the third time both schools were ranked. The other games:- 2001: No. 16 Huskies 26, No. 9 Cougars 14- 1997: No. 11 Cougars 41, No. 17 Huskies 35 (win sent Washington SState to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1930 season)- 1972: No. Andre Johnson Jersey. 20 Cougars 27, No. 17 Huskies 10- 1936: No. 6 Huskies 40, No. 20 Cougars 0The past two weeks have taken a bit of luster off the meeting.Washingtons loss at home to Southern California and Washington States setback at Colorado diminished some of the significance.Washington State (8-3, 7-1 Pac-12) no longer has a path to the Rose Bowl via just a win over the Huskies; the Cougars only hope for a trip to Pasadena would come through winning the Pac-12 title game.Washington (10-1, 7-1) lost any wiggle room it had in the College Football Playoff rankings and must beat the Cougars and win the Pac-12 championship game to have a shot at being in the final four.I didnt think we played together particularly well, Leach said Monday of the loss to Colorado. (I) thought we should have played together better. I thought that was the case team-wide.The beginning of the week wasnt without distractions for the Huskies, who were dealing with the departure of reserve cornerback Darren Gardenhire on Monday. Gardenhire first posted on his Instagram page that he was transferring and Petersen later confirmed that Gardenhire is no longer with the program. Petersen said the decision was a bit of a surprise.Gardenhire appeared in 11 games and had 13 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery.Difference in philosophy is probably the best way to put it, Petersen said.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ;Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys CheapWholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys' ' '
