TORONTO -- When the Toronto Raptors first gathered for training camp, Dwane Casey knew his players wanted to talk about more than basketball.Racial tension was simmering in the United States. Images of police brutality had gone viral. National anthem protests were spreading.The coach was moved by what his players said.Terrence Ross, who everyone thought was really quiet, had some very thoughtful and impactful statements and thoughts on the whole issue that you would never think, Casey said. I was really proud of the way our players had opinions and had thought them out, very respectful yet thought-provoking statements that they made.If athletes, with their legions of fans, are in a unique position to speak up, Casey is all for it.The 59-year-old coach was raised by his grandparents in Morganfield, Kentucky. The town was largely segregated until an effort at integration, when he was in fourth grade, forced him to ride a bus across town to school. He went on to become one of the first black players at the University of Kentucky.Ive lived it, I know it, I know how (the players) are feeling, what they're going through, what they're seeing, Casey told The Canadian Press after a recent practice. Ive told them, `Hey Ive been through segregation. Ive changed schools where Ive had to fight, and the National Guard was brought in. Ive used hand-me-down books in school. Ive seen police brutality. Ive seen the Ku Klux Klan riding through my town of Morganfield. Ive seen the segregated bathrooms.The Raptors played the first game of the NBAs preseason in Vancouver, British Columbia, and became the first team in the league to protest during the anthem. They stood with linked arms and have done so in every game since. They open the season at home Wednesday night against Detroit Pistons.Not everyone was a fan of the gesture.Some people got upset because they thought it was disrespecting the police, Casey said. But, believe me, its no disrespect to the police force. As a matter of fact, (guard) Delon Wrights mother is a police officer, and we were very cognizant of that and respectful of that.Its just to continue the conversation. I would argue those incidents needed to be talked about, and what better way for society to understand it than through sports?About three-quarters of NBA players are black. The league is considered the most progressive of North American pro sports. The league moved the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte to New Orleans over a North Carolina bathroom law that discriminated against transgender people.Commissioner Adam Silver said last week he hopes players continue to stand for the national anthem, but said there may be no organization in our society better positioned than the NBA to make an impact.NBA players have waded into the U.S. presidential race. LeBron James endorsed Hillary Clinton in an op-ed piece in the Akron Beacon Journal and Business Insider, referencing the violence, of every kind, the African-American community is experiencing in our streets and seeing on our TVs.Baron Davis wrote a column for the Players Tribune last week called Do Something, encouraging players to vote.I tell my players `Get your absentee ballots, and vote, Casey said. I remember my grandparents talking about when African-Americans couldn't vote. Or they tried to make it hard for them to vote.So that is a privilege a lot of people fought for, you went to jail for. Everyone should vote. that's your way of showing power as an individual. We can protest, but the only way you fight stuff like that is through voting. Using your right to vote. Nike Air Vapormax KPU .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Nike Vapormax Noir . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. http://www.sitechaussuresnikepascher.fr/nike-air-max-2018-elite/air-max-2018-elite-homme.html . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour.

Nike Air Max 97 Pas Cher . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Pas Cher .

"The Sabres called for permission and I appreciate that, Im flattered, Dudley told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN. EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Leo Musso returned a fumble 66 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter and No. 11 Wisconsin turned its early showdown with No. 8 Michigan State into a rout, beating the Spartans 30-6 on Saturday.Redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook threw for 195 yards and a touchdown in his first start for Wisconsin, outplaying fifth-year senior Tyler OConnor, his Michigan State counterpart. The Badgers (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) were the better team in the first half and outscored the Spartans 17-0 in the third quarter.Michigan State (2-1, 0-1) was down 13-6 early in the third and had the ball in Wisconsin territory when LJ Scotts fumble bounced to Musso in the secondary. OConnor was the only player with a decent shot at him on the return, and Musso spun past the quarterback and went all the way to the end zone.OConnor finished 18 of 38 for 224 yards with three interceptions.Corey Clement ran for two touchdowns for Wisconsin.NO. 7 STANFORD 22, UCLA 13PASADENA, Calif. -- J.J. Arcega-Whiteside caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Burns with 24 seconds left, and No. 7 Stanford rallied on its final drive for its ninth consecutive victory over UCLA.Christian McCaffrey rushed for 138 yards for the Cardinal (3-0, 2-0 Pac-12), who havent lost to their downstate rivals since 2008.After struggling on offense for 3 1/2 quarters at the Rose Bowl, Stanford put together a 70-yard winning drive capped by Burns fade to Arcega-Whiteside, who got one foot inbounds on an acrobatic play. Solomon Thomas then returned Josh Rosens fumble 42 yards for a touchdown on the games final play.Rosen passed for 248 yards for the Bruins (2-2, 0-1). UCLAs defense faltered late after severely limiting the Cardinal and McCaffrey, who had his 14th consecutive 100-yard rushing game, for most of the night at the Rose Bowl.NO. 1 ALABAMA 48, KENT STATE 0TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Jalen Hurts ran and threw for touchdowns and tailback sub Joshua Jacobs scored his first two career touchdowns for Alabama.The Crimson Tide (4-0) dominated coach Nick Sabans alma mater from the start while scoring on a kickoff return and even a short touchdown throw to freshman linebacker Mack Wilson. Starting tailback Damien Harris went down on the opening drive with a sprained right ankle and didn't return.Harris was hardly needed in this game, when No. 2 quarterback Blake Barnett played much of the way and the emerging freshman Jacobs ran for 97 yards. It amounted to a respite for the Tide against Kent State (1-3) after a bruising 48-43 comeback victory over No. 23 Mississippi.Hurts was 16 of 24 for 164 yards and ran for 54 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown dash on the opening drive. He found Wilson, who lines up at fullback in goal line situations, for a 1-yard third-quarter score that was supposed to go to tight end O.J. Howard.NO. 4 MICHIGAN 49, PENN STATE 10ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- DeVeon Smith led an overwhelming ground game with 107 yards rushing and a touchdown and Karan Higdon ran for two scores for Michigan in the Big Ten opener for both teams.The Wolverines (4-0) had six touchdowns on the ground and finished with 326 yards rushing. Wilton Speight threw one touchdown pass. Penn State (2-2) has lost three straight to the Wolverines.Jabrill Peppers gave the fans an early thrill by returning Penn States first punt to the 9, although a bench-interference penalty moved the ball to the Nittany Lions 24. Seven plays later, Khalid Hill dove in on 4th-and-goal from the 1. The Wolverines also scored touchdowns on their next two drives. Penn State finally got a couple stops, but the Wolverines took a 28-0 halftime lead on Higdons 2-yard run.NO. 6 HOUSTON 64, TEXAS STATE 3SAN MARCOS, Texas -- DEriq King caught a touchdown pass, threw one and returned a kickoff for another score in Houstons blowout victory.King, a freshman recruited to play quarterback, is playing at wide receiver while Greg Ward Jr. directs the offense. Ward passed for two touchdowns and ran for one before leaving the game after playing one series in the third quarter. He completed 20 of 26 passes for 289 yards.King made a mistake by calling for a fair catch on the Houston 5 during a first-quarter Texas State punt. He soon compensated for that, however, catching a short pass from Ward on a bubble screen and taking it in for a touchdown from 48 yards out. Earlly in the second quarter, King took a handoff from Ward and threw a high pass to the end zone that Steven Dunbar pulled in for a 15-yard touchdown.dddddddddddd.King began the second half by returning the kickoff 99 yards for another touchdown.Houston (4-0) gained 563 yards and limited Texas State (1-2) to 142.NO. 23 MISSISSIPPI 45, NO. 12 GEORGIA 14OXFORD, Miss. -- Chad Kelly threw for 282 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to help Mississippi break a 10-game losing streak in the series dating to 1996.The Rebels (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) dominated every phase, building a lead of 31-0 by halftime and 45-0 by midway through the third quarter.Georgia (3-1, 1-1) lost for the first time under new coach Kirby Smart and looked overmatched. To make matters worse, star running back Nick Chubb injured an ankle in the second quarter and didn't return.It was an impressive win for the Rebels, who finally built a big lead they didn't give away. Ole Miss led Florida State by 22 points and Alabama by 21 this season before losing both games.Kelly was 18 of 24 and had a 41-yard touchdown run through the middle of the defense.NO. 13 FLORIDA STATE 55, SOUTH FLORIDA 35TAMPA, Fla. -- Dalvin Cook rushed for a career-high 267 yards and two touchdowns and Florida State rebounded from the most lopsided loss in school history to beat South Florida.Cook scored on a 75-yard run on the Seminoles first play from scrimmage, an immediate response to USF starting the game with Quinton Flowers and Rodney Adams teaming on an 84-yard catch-and-run for a 7-0 lead. The 213-pound juniors rushing total on 28 carries topped his previous best of 266 yards against South Florida last year.Florida State (3-1) bounced back from being trounced 63-20 by Louisville, a road shellacking that dropped the Seminoles 11 spots in the AP Top 25 from No. 2. South Florida (3-1) is off to its fastest start since 2011, however the Bulls were no match for a talented bunch that began the season with expectations of contending for its second national title in four years.NO. 14 TENNESSEE 38, NO. 19 FLORIDA 28KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Joshua Dobbs accounted for five second-half touchdowns and Tennessee overcame a 21-point deficit to beat Florida and end an 11-game losing streak in the series.Tennessee (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) beat Florida (3-1, 1-1) for the first time since a 30-28 victory in 2004.

Dobbs also ran for 80 yards and a touchdown.AUBURN 18, NO. 18 LSU 13AUBURN, Ala. -- Daniel Carlson kicked six field goals and Auburn beat LSU after officials ruled Danny Etlings apparent last-gasp scoring pass came after time expired.Etling rolled to his right and found D.J. Shark on a 15-yard pass, setting off a celebration by LSU players. Officials ruled time expired before Etling took the snap.The celebration shifted to the Auburn sideline when officials announced the decisive ruling.It was an important win for Auburn (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) and coach Gus Malzahn, who faced increased criticism following losses to Top 25 opponents Clemson and Texas A&M.An illegal shift penalty against LSU (2-2, 1-1) left the Tigers with a fourth-down play from the 15 with 5 seconds remaining, setting up the final-play drama.LSU star running back Leonard Fournette had 16 carries for 101 yards.NO. 20 NEBRASKA 24, NORTHWESTERN 13EVANSTON, Ill. -- Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw for 246 yards and ran for a career-high 132 to lead Nebraska past Northwestern in the Big Ten opener for both teams.The Cornhuskers (4-0) remained unbeaten coming off a tight win over Oregon that vaulted them into the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time since December 2014.They lost two fumbles near the Northwestern goal line in the first half, but scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to stretch their lead from three to 11.The Wildcats (1-3) matched their loss total from last year when they went 10-3.
