GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- When Florida coach Jim McElwain got to his desk Sunday, there was a folder sitting on top labeled Presbyterian. One peek inside revealed a significant mistake.I was like, `Wait a minute. Somethings wrong here, McElwain said Monday. I dont have disrespect for them, but this didnt look like Presbyterian.Nope, it was No. 16 LSU.Different jerseys. Different numbers. Much different talent.Hurricane Matthew, which forced Florida to reschedule a home game against the Tigers and cancel a home game against lower-division Presbyterian, could end up costing the 21st-ranked Gators a trip to the Southeastern Conference title game. Theres little doubt McElwains banged-up team would have been better off playing LSU last month -- in Gainesville.Now, Tigers star running back Leonard Fournette is healthy , Florida is down seven starters -- including their top three tacklers -- and the game is being played in Baton Rouge.To me, you want to go play somebody at their best, McElwain said. I dont ever look for a win to have an asterisk on it, does that make sense?It might make sense. But its surely not ideal for Florida (7-2, 5-2 SEC), which likely needs a victory Saturday to clinch the Eastern Division. The Gators could still wrap up a spot in the title game with a loss to the Tigers, but they would need Tennessee to lose to Missouri or Vanderbilt.And Florida will be without at least seven starters Saturday, including quarterback Luke Del Rio (shoulder).You can sit and cry about it or do whatever or you can just move on, McElwain said. Thats what weve got to do. You know what, it is what it is. Were going there to play and thats the way it is.McElwain also ruled out center Cam Dillard (knee), left tackle David Sharpe (foot), defensive end Bryan Cox Jr. (ankle), safety Marcus Maye (arm) and linebackers Alex Anzalone (arm) and Jarrad Davis (ankle). Two others, guard/center Tyler Jordan (ankle) and defensive end CeCe Jefferson (ankle), are questionable to play.Theyre struggling with injuries, so its going to be 10 times harder now, LSU defensive end Arden Key said. Either way it goes, if they played here or there, it was going to be hard for them to get the W. I dont feel like they were going to get the win when we play then or now.Florida and LSU (6-3, 4-2) were initially scheduled to play Oct. 8 at Florida Field. When the threat of the Category 4 hurricane forced the SEC to postpone the game, LSU took a hard stance on not giving up a home game to reschedule.The Tigers said Florida wanted to postpone it because Del Rio was coming off a sprained knee and two defensive linemen looked like they wouldnt play. Now, the Gators would love to have that short of an injury report.That part bothered me a little bit, Florida safety Nick Washington said. They think we had a choice of avoiding this game when theres a hurricane. Not just me but a lot of my teammates, a lot of us had family in places where the hurricane was hitting. It kind of bothered us a little bit, but we had to let it go.What was supposed to be a relatively relaxing week and a game against a seemingly overmatched opponent from the Football Championship Subdivision has become an all-or-nothing affair against one of the hottest teams in the country and in the one the nations least-hospitable stadiums.The Tigers have won four of five games, the only loss a 10-0 setback against top-ranked Alabama, have Fournette at full speed and have allowed the fewest touchdowns (10) in the nation.Florida, meanwhile, continues to struggle offensively and will have to shuffle guys up front again since it will be without at least two linemen. Its a scenario the Gators surely would be able to handle if the matchup -- or the folder on McElwains desk -- really was Presbyterian.Its the biggest game of the year because its the next one, quarterback Austin Appleby said. With that said, we know whats at stake. We want to go back to Atlanta. Thats why you come to Florida. You want to play for championships. Weve got everything that we want right in front of us.---AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in Baton Rouge contributed to this report.---More AP college football: Adidas Scott Hartnell Jersey .

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Adidas Sam Gagner Jersey .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. WASHINGTON -- It is one of baseballs enduring mysteries in recent years and will be front-and-center in Game 1 of the NL Division Series between the Dodgers and Nationals that begins Friday:Why is LA lefty Clayton Kershaw so downright masterful during the regular season and so decidedly mediocre during the playoffs?While a player such as Washington slugger Bryce Harper talks about thriving when the stage is biggest, the lights brightest, the TV audience broadest, Kershaw seems to spend early October dealing with questions about happens to him at this time of year. He goes from being a three-time Cy Young Award winner (with a pair of other top-three finishes in voting) who wins two out of every three decisions (126-60 career record) and owns a 2.37 ERA to just a guy: 2-6, 4.59 ERA.The bad ones stand out more, he said Thursday, for sure.He offered one possible explanation for the disparity, and a hopeful-sounding view of why things could be different this time around, beginning when he faces Max Scherzer and the rest of the NL East champions.In years gone by, Kershaw said, he thought he was supposed to carry the Dodgers.But he missed more than two months with a back injury in 2016 and thought it took some time to get completely comfortable when he returned for five starts in September.In the past, Ive definitely felt that pressure more. But this years been a little bit different for me, just as far as having to watch on the sidelines. ... Its really kind of hit home for me a little bit, as Ive come back, that I can definitely be a part of this and definitely help and definitely be a factor in winning, Kershaw said. But I dont have to be THE factor.Another difference: He recently picked up somewhat of a sidearm delivery for the occasional 95 mph fastball, something he got from Game 2 starter Rich Hill.Neither Dodgers rookie manager Dave Roberts nor Kershaw himself has spent time going over video of past playoff performances to try to glean anything that could be improved or changed for this series.I dont read too much into it and havent looked back on it. I dont think it has any bearing on this postseason, the start tomorrow, Roberts said. And I really dont think Clayton cares, either.Setting aside Kershaws particular case, for the moment, there are those players, to be sure, who are able to elevate themsellves when the stakes and scrutiny are the greatest.ddddddddddddarper, who slugged .882 with three homers in Washingtons 2014 NLDS loss to San Francisco, describes himself as someone who enjoys playing in front of millions of people and adds: My heart doesnt really race or anything like that. Im super calm. I feel great at the plate. I feel great in the outfield. Just feels like home.Nationals left fielder Jayson Werth, who won a World Series title with Philadelphia in 2008, spoke about Phillies teammate Jimmy Rollins as an example of someone who performed best when the TV cameras turned on.The red lights on and, all of a sudden, he turns into a superhero. Thats more personality than DNA, I think, Werth said. Some guys can do it. Some guys are the opposite. They play better during the season, when no ones watching.Some other story lines to watch in the NLDS between the Dodgers and Nationals:ROOKIE STARS: This series features two outstanding rookies who might be the teams most dynamic offensive players, Dodgers SS Corey Seager (.308 average, 26 HRs) and Nationals CF Trea Turner (.342, 13 HRs, 33 SBs in 73 games). Hes going to help us out tremendously the next couple of weeks, Harper said about Turner.HOME VS. ROAD: The Dodgers went 53-28 at home and only 38-43 on the road in 2016; if the best-of-five NLDS goes the distance, Game 5 will be at Nationals Park. You know what? Roberts said. I dont think therell be carryover.CLOSE CLOSERS: Each club features a top regular-season closer -- Washingtons Mark Melancon converted 47 of 51 save chances this year; LAs Kenley Jansen went 47 for 53. One difference: Melancon was asked to earn a save of more than three outs only twice all season, while Jansen did it five times, and Roberts said hed have no qualms about asking for that repeatedly in the series.HISTORY-MAKING MANAGERS: This is the first postseason matchup in MLB history involving two black managers. It gives us some pride, in being African-American, to show people that not only can we do the job, but we can do the job better than most, Washingtons Dusty Baker said.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno contributed.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at [] Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
