Isn't it on them to groom replacements and fill holes left by an NFL Draft while missing a minimal beat? You say those guys, and you mention the heart and soul of OU the last few years.

It's the same on offense , where the gaping holes weren't as notable but pieces are still missing from past year.
A&M's front seven defensively was more physical than they have been the past two years here. But the Razorbacks were so focused on containing the passing game that they disregarded the rushing attack. They constantly hit Arkansas' quarterback despite him officially getting sacked but once. As a result, this offense has been able to move the chains any way they please and they've managed to put points on the board, one way or another, in every game.
With so much focus on guys like Odell Beckham Jr. and Antonio Brown, playmakers like Jarvis Landry get lost in the shuffle of a bad Miami team. And kudos to them.

But Gase and Miami were saved in large part because of the inaccurate kicking of Parkey, in a game that started on a somber note when a moment of silence was held for Jose Fernandez - ...

He uses well his left foot - a bit too much in my taste. "You have to adapt and we are in a job where we have to show we are able to put our effort in everywhere and compete". We know he is a top-quality player, but he needs to play.

Neville is curious about how " the Pogba- Herrera midfield pair if played together, deliver in the big games and better oppositions ".

Or maybe he thought he was still playing. The 14-time major champ - serving as a vice captain for the Ryder Cup this week - apparently lined up in the back row as the players took their place for the team picture. Spieth recalled the tension of the USA losing his 2014 debut at Gleneagles. It boasts a superior team in both experience and Official World Golf Ranking and is playing on home soil where it has something to prove after getting embarrassed on the final day in 2012 at Medinah.

Having beaten Real on the last three occasions they had hosted them, Dortmund were looking to extend their run against the holders, who welcomed back goalkeeper Keylor Navas, but were missing the influential ...
Because I am here to protect him and not to put him in hard situations I have to analyse whether the best thing for him is to start the game if he is not totally ready for it. Why Rashford is playing so well? "He has recovered and he is ready for tomorrow". Both are verging full fitness and will give Mourinho's side a massive boost as vital players on the team.
United midfielder Jesse Lingard stood up for under-pressure Rooney, saying: "He's been a leader for the team, especially when the captain's not playing". He confirmed Luke Shaw missed training today with the rest of the team because he was ill.

Anyone old enough to remember the replacement players from the 1987 strike knows how terrible those kickers and punters were for the three weeks they had to play. "But the key is to win the game".

Spurs were without Harry Kane , Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Moussa Sissoko in Russian Federation but still snatched a 1-0 win thanks to Heung-min Son's late victor. "Now you can see all the players are key", Pochettino said. "Dier and Dembélé are OK but we don't want to take a risk", Pochettino said.

Dantonio's team has made a habit of winning ugly games. "I think everyone's ready to go", Dantonio said on his pregame radio show on WJR 760-AM.

Things went well for the Irish early on, getting a touchdown in their second possession of the game but things took a drastic turn after that.
