All-Time Team DL preview


It’s another long list of nominees for the Bills 50th Season All-Time Team as the defensive line begins the run of defensive candidates.

Three earned multiple AFL-All Star designations, five others earned Pro Bowl recognition, four made the Bills 25th Anniversary Team, three have their names on the Bills Wall of Fame and one will be enshrined in Canton this August.

Remember you can register to vote for the at Voting opens for defensive and head coaching candidates on Wednesday.

Only three defensive linemen can be chosen as the Wall of Fame Committee chose to go with Buffalo’s 3-4 defensive front that was popular in the 80’s and 90’s.

Keep in mind that your defensive line choices are not mandated to include two defensive ends and a nose tackle, but you can only choose three total.

Here’s a preview of some of the better men that held the line for Buffalo’s defense over the past 50 years.

A former second-round pick in 1963, Dunaway provFormer Barcelona midfielder Rafinha is delighted with his return to Celta Vigo.Around 3,000 fans gathered at Balaidos to welcome him back, and he’ll be hoping to make his debut once the international break concludes.”I feel at home here, I will be happy,” Rafinha declared to the crowd as he was presented.”I can make the best of myself.”After a long time, I need continuity.”ed to be the perfect complement to Tom Sestak in the middle of Buffalo’s vaunted AFL Championship defense.

Dunaway was a four-time AFL All-Star from 1965-1968 earning 1st team All-Pro honors in 1966. He also stands third all time in games played in a Bills uniform by a defensive tackle with 126, and holds the franchise record for most career fumble recoveries.

“Jimmy was a really strong guy,” said former Bills linebacker Harry Jacobs. “He was a big guy, bigger than Tom (Sestak). He was a solid mass in the middle.”

A full-time starter by his second season on a Super Bowl contending team, Hansen was a dependable anchor on the left end of Buffalo’s 3-4 front.

Second in franchise history in tackles and third in sacks, Hansen was an all-around threat that could even kick inside to tackle on passing downs.

Hansen’s most memorable play came on Oct. 5, 1997 when Hansen broke a 13-13 tie with two minutes remaining in the game by dropping Detroit’s Barry Sanders for a safety in his own end zone in what wound up being a Bills 22-13 victory.

Another left defensive end stalwart, McDole was part of Buffalo’s renowned AFL Championship defenses that held opponents without a rushing touchdown for 17 straight games.

Blessed with uncommon athleticism for a man his size (265 pounds), McDole was instrumental in the 23-0 AFL Championship shutout of the high-octane as defensive coordinator Joe Collier had McDole drop into coverage while linebackers Mike Stratton and John Tracey blitzed.

A two-time AFL All-Star and 1st team All-Pro in 1966, McDole was also named to the Bills 25th Anniversary Team.

“Ron McDole was probably the best defensive end to go to the other side of the field to makrcelona.Betis and Barcelona brought Emerson to Spain from Atletico Mineiro in a complicated deal which should eventually see the fullback join the Catalans.He told Mundo Deportivo: “I have in my head that I will go to Barça, that I will play to win e a tackle,” said former teammate Harry Jacobs.

The former second-round pick stepped into the starting lineup for Barcelona director Toni Freixa says Pep Guardiola could succeed in Serie A.The Manchester City manager has been linked with AC Milan and Juventus this season.And Freixa told TMW: “In my opinion Guardiola is the best coach of his era. “He is one of ththe Bills as a rookie and did not miss a game in almost eight seasons playing in 117 straight games before a Lisfranc foot injury sidelined him in 2008.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Schobel led the Bills in sacks his first seven seasons in the league and earned two Pro Bowl designations in 2006 and 2007.

Second in team annals in sacks (68) and forced fumbles (18), Schobel is one of the more productive pass rushers in franchise history.

Drafted out of college as a tight end, Sestak would go on to have one of the most prolific careers at defensive tackle in Bills history. An integral member of Buffalo’s AFL Championship defenses, Sestak was a dominant inside force.

A first team All-Pro three straight seasons and a four-time AFL All-Star, Sestak is also a member of the AFL All-Time Team and the AFL Hall of Fame. His name also graces the Bills Wall of Fame.

“He was just a super solid contributor on every play,” said Jacobs. “He came in as a tight end and who would ever think of a tight end becoming a defensive tackle. So solid, so strong and so able to make a difference in what was going on up front. Whenever he was called on he was able to get it done. He was just really good.”

One of the most dominant nose tackles of his era, Smerlas was a five-time Pro Bowl selection. An expert leverage player due to his wrestling background, Smerlas rarely gave up ground and was a consistent penetrator making numerous plays in the opponent’s backfield.

Second only to Bruce Smith in games played in a Buffalo uniform by a defensive lineman with 162, Smerlas’ most memorable play was when he blocked a game-winning Pat Leahy field goal attempt to force overtime and help clinch the AFC East title for the Bills in 1988.

Smerlas is a member of the Bills Wall of Fame and was also named to the Bills 25th Anniversary Team.

“Fred was a wrestler, unbelievable leverage, couldn’t knock him off his feet,” said Hall of Fame guard and former teammate Joe DeLamielleure. “Great pass rusher from the inside. He should be a Hall of Famer in my opinion. He made five Pro Bowls. There is no nose guard in the Hall of Fame, pure nose guard. Him and Joe Klecko should be in the Hall of Fame.”

The NFL and franchise’s all-time sack leader, Bruce Smith was one of the most feared pass rushers in league history.

Manning the right defensive end position for 15 seasons, the former number one overall pick had 12 seasons of double digit sacks in his 15 years as a Bill.

An 11-time Pro Bowler, Smith was also named 1st team All-Pro eight times. A member of the Bills Wall of Fame, Smith will be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame this August.

The prototype nose tackle of his era, Washington was an immovable object in Buffalo’s 3-4 defensive front.

One of the main cogs in Buffalo’s number one ranked defense in 1999, Washington was one of the league’s most dominant run defenders. Buffalo ranked fifth, fourth and sixth in the league against the run his last three seasons with the Bills (1998-2000).

Selected to three Pro Bowls in his time with Buffalo, Washington recorded a career-high 130 tackles in 1996. 

Williams was one of Buffalo’s primary pass rushers in the late 70’s and early 80’s. The former third-round pick earned Pro Bowl honors in 1982.

Williams is also one of only five defensive linemen in Bills history to record a double digit sack season when he had 10 in 1983. He is also a member of the Bills 25th Anniversary team.

His most memorable play came in Dec. 13, 1981 when Williams sacked Matt Cavanaugh in the end zone for a safety in a Bills 19-10 win over New England.

“He was a great leader and great player,” said DeLamielleure. “He had extremely long arms. He was like a poor man’s Elvin Bethea, and he was a Hall of Famer. Just a step below that.”

A self made player, Williams went from undrafted rookie free agent to dominant defensive tackle as the Texas A&M product became a fixture on the defensive interior for the Bills in the new century.

Williams was an integral part of Buffalo’s number two ranked defense in 2004.

One of his more memorable plays was his 20-yard interception return for a touchdown in a Dec. 5, 2004 game at Miami to seal a 42-32 win over the Dolphins with 1:55 left in the game.

Florida State vs. Miami score: No. 17 Hurricanes complete largest comeback ever over rival Seminoles


Miami remains undefeated in conference play and in the driver’s seat of the ACC Coastal Division after holding off best effort of the season and storming back from a double-digit halftime deficit in a 28-27 rivalry win. After giving up seven straight to the Seminoles, Miami now has its own two-game run in the series behind Mark Richt, following up last year’s late-game heroics with 21 unanswered points to close the game after trailing by 20 in the third quarter. 

“Defense, turnovers and taking advantage of it offensively,” Mark Richt said to ESPN when asked how Miami was able to the turn the game in the second half. “Florida State came in here and took control of this game, and we found a way to fight back. A lot of credit goes to those guys, but somehow we gutted it out. It started with a turnover, and that beautiful turnover chain.”

Miami’s defensive line finally showed the edge that many expected to see throughout the game in the second half as Gerald Willis, and the rest of that group started to dominate in one-on-one battles and disrupt Florida State’s offensive flow. As things started to sputter for the Seminoles, redshirt freshman got into rhythm and threw three of his four touchdown passes in the final 20 minutes of the game. 

Here, now, are three things to know about the game and what it means for both teams

Through most of the first half half and about half of the third quarter, Miami’s offense struggled mightily and Perry looked rattled. The home crowd voiced its displeasure with what appeared to be a conservative approach from a play-calling perspective, and when Perry was challenged to move the ball the down the field through the air, he often missed receivers (though, while he completed less than half of his passes, there were no turnovers). But even as Perry and the offense struggled, Richt never decided to go back to at quarterback. The gameplan was set up to make things easy on the redshirt freshman, and riding with Perry allowed him to play through the mistakes and then step up with the clutch plays that helped seal the comeback win down the stretch. 

The value of that Miami defense can never be overstated, and it got a huge boost with back in the lineup to solidify the back end of a unit that has been outstanding up front. Johnson led all Miami defenders with 10 tackles — seven solo — and seemed to be in the right spot at the right time all afternoon. The Hurricanes were able to break out the turnover chain twice but it was also the third down stops along the way that won the game for the Hurricanes. 

Even if it taurce.The Mirror says United have been linked to Lille winger Nicolas Pepe and Sporting Lisbon’s free-scoring midfielder Bruno Fernandes in recent weeks.Both are rated in the £70million-plus bracket by their clubs.But Old Trafford bosses have NOT madkes the rest of the season for Perry to really settle in as the starting quarterback, Richt can have confidence that his defense is strong enough to lead the way in the rest of its games. A more conservative offensive approach might be frustrating for fans who see the talent at wide receiver, but limiting mistakes is a perfectly fine way to play winning football when you’ve got the best defense in the ACC. 

There is no moral victory here for Florida State. The offensive line that has struggled throughout the season ultimately takes a portion of the blame for the blown lead, as Miami’s defens a new deal.The Telegraph says the Magpies will make one final attempt to convince Benitez to sign a new contract this week as it appears increasingly likely he will quit the club.Benitez’s contract will expire on June 30 and he is expected to announive line was unblockable late in the game. There is plenty good to take away from thisearing Barcelona players do want want his signing.Sport says the Frenchman is upset with the heavyweights for vetoing his signing, which could radically change his plans after he revealed he would leave Atletico Madrid. Now, Griezmann is in no man’s game, like the special teams contributions of Charles Matthews and the Seminoles defense doing a good job of applying pressure on the quarterback, but this was a much-needed win not only for rivalry/morale purposes, but even on the base level of securing bowl eligibility. 

Last season, it took a rescheduled ULM game to get Florida State into a bowl, and that Independence Bowl may have been a letdown from preseason expectations, but it continued a decades-long streak that is now in jeopardy in 2018. Florida State, at 3-3, still has four ranked teams — , , and — left on its schedule. A win here against the Hurricanes allowed for losses in all of those games and still making a bowl if they could beat and . Now, FSU has to beat Wake Forest, Boston College and one of those four ranked teams in order to continue its season into December.

Kansas State suspends band director for Kansas game, will pay $5K fine


announced self-imposed sanctions for the school and its marching band as a result of the controversial halftime show performance on Saturday. 

The set, according to the marching band’s Facebook page, included a special Star Trek reference with the “Starship Enterprise” flying into the mouth of a Kansas Jayhawk. The final result on the field, however, made it too easy to mistake the design for an inappropriate takedown of K-State’s in-state rival.  

The school apologized on Saturday and on Tuesday announced formal sanctions for the marching band moving forward.

“After Saturday’s gah their 2-2 draw at Champions League opponents Atletico Madrid.After the Bianconeri were 2-0 up with Juan Cuadrado and Blaise Matuidi goals, Atleti fought back with two headers from set plays courtesy of Stefan Savic and Hector Herrera.Bonucci said, me, the administration formally their way back.Pogba, 26, has had the cast taken off his right ankle after surgery and McTominay, 23, has had his knewcastle United is now close.The Daily Mail says representatives of a half-brother of Manchester City’s owner Sheik Mansour claimed on Sunday night that he is on the brink of sealing an extraordinary £350m takeover of Newcastle United.The closest wore brace removed. The Scotland international also posted a video of himself at the weekend walking without crutches.United have a 16-apologized to the chancellor and athletic director at the University of Kansas, which was the mascot depicted by the band,” the statement read. “K-State students previously signed a sportsmanship pledge as a way to increase the awareness of good sportsmanship.”

The penalties imposed by Kansas State: 

1. A self-imposed $5,000 fine to be paid to the Big 12 for violation of league sportsmanship policy

2. A single-game suspension for the university director of bands. The suspension will take place for the game against Kansas on Nov. 28. 

3. Prior approval for all content in the band’s halftime shows by representatives of the Office of Student Life and the Athletic Department. 

Given Kansas was the target in this potentially-inappropriate-but-definitely-misguided jab from the band, it makes sense to suspend the director for that game. As for the fine and approval checks moving forward, it stinks that K-State’s band won’t be able to surprise the school as easily with clever presentations but that can be chalked up to a privilege lost with Saturday’s misstep.

SI alleges cash payments from coaches, boosters at Oklahoma State


Sports Illustrated’s 10-month project investigating the rise of football will be rolled out over the next two weeks, alleging numerous NCAA violations and commenting on the culture of the Cowboys program under Les Miles and Mike Gundy from 2001-11.

The first installment — “The Money” — . Thonuses have hit morale inside the Manchester United squad.The Sun says Sanchez, on an eye-watering £505,000 a week, picks up a staggering £75,000 per goal, with an extra £25,000 each assist.And World Cup winner Pogba is paid £50,000 for every goae most notable allegations in the first part of the series included the three ways Oklahoma State funneled money to players.

According to Sports Illustrated, this happened three ways.

A bonus system, managed by assistant coachesDirect payments from boostersNo-show jobs or sham jobs arranged by coaches and boosters.

Former coach Les Miles and current Cowboys coach Mike Gundy are not linked directly to any payments documented by SI’s reporting. However, the report haers early in the transfer window.The Clarets are hoping to add to the signings of Jay Rodriguez and Erik Pieters.But Dyche says he will have to remain patient until the window closes on August 8.”This window’s been the same as what they always are,” s multiple players discussing, on the record, violations committed by former Cowboys assistants Joe DeForest and Larry Porter.

DeForest, now the associate head coach at West Virginia, and Porter, now the running backs coach at Texas, both issued statements to SI vehemently denying the allegations.

In separate interviews, eight former Oklahoma State players told SI they received cash payments while playing for the Cowboys, naming 29 other teammates in those interviews who did the same.

While several boosters, including the athletic museum curator and a local FCA director, arranged for jobs to overpay players for chores or speaking arrangements, T. Boone Pickens, the most prominent booster in the school’s history, was not implicated in any improprieties by SI’s report.

Arguably the most damning excerpt for Joe DeForest came from former defensive tackle Brad Girtman. Girtman told SI that he was “getting paid on the low end” compared to his teammates — who “got monster payments.” 

For Girtman, quarterback hurries were worth $50, a tackle between $75 to $100 and a sack from $200 to $250. Echoing his teammates’ claim, Girtman says the rates were told to him by assistant Joe DeForest, who ran the special teams and secondary under coach Les Miles from 2001 to ’04, and was the associate head coach, special teams coordinator and safeties coach under current coach Mike Gundy from 2005 to ’11. When players met with their position coaches after games, according to Girtman, DeForest would go from group to group and discuss with the players what they had done. “Your stats definitely dictated how much you were getting,” Girtman says.

It should be noted that current coach Mike Gundy kicked Girtman off the team in 2005, his first season as head coach, for a violation of team rules. 

Oklahoma State . At the time, the story had not been posted but the Cowboys’ AD was aware of the allegations made by Sports Illustrated. 

“We’re all committed to playing by the rules and doing things the right way, and for people to say that is not what’s happening is very disturbing,” Holder said. “Our goal is to separate fact from fiction, and then we can start dealing with it. We’vem are ready to submit a £17m bid for Gabigol.The 23-year-old is currently on loan at Flamengo and the Brazilian side have claimed a deal was in place to sign him permanently. But Inter insist that is not the case and want to sell ‘Gabigol’ to the hi already notified the NCAA, and they’re going to assign an investigator to this. We’ll reach out and get someone to stand with that investigator and go through the facts. And at the end of the day, we’ll come to some conclusions, and we’ll deal with those. We’ll prop ourselves back up, polish up that OSU brand and move on down the road.

“I apologize to all of the athletic directors in the conference for what’s about to happen, what’s about to be said about a member institution. That reflects on everyone, all of our brothers and peers. I’ve reached out, but couldn’t call all of our supporters. I’d like to call every single season ticket holder we’ve got. We’re about to sell a record number of season tickets. We have a responsibility to those people. They’re going to suffer from this as well. My message was ‘You’re not going to like what you hear. It’s going to be a rough few days, but our hope is that you may not be proud about what’s being said about you, but we hope to make you proud of the way that we deal with it and how we stood up, didn’t make any excuses and didn’t try to cover anything up.”

PHOTO: Rich Rodriguez approves of Tommy Bahama shirts


There’s been a lot of ways to tell Rich Rodriguez is simply more comfortable at than he ever was at Michigger Jose Mourinho has used another unique analogy to explain his situation at the club.Mourinho has been routinely asked by journalists about the issues that are preventing him from taking the team to the next level.And he has president Florentino Perez to warn him off Kylian Mbappe.Perez has spied a chance to bring forward plans to ferry Mbappe to Madrid this summer amid talk of the player being frustrated with locker room politics inside PSG.Mbappe’s outburst at last weenow spoken about how hean: the smiles, the , the seventh-ranked FBS offense, . 

But via , here’s the most compelling evidence yet:  

Yes, that’s a display from what appears to be a University of Arizona bookstore that proudly proclaims that the “RichRod APPROVED” Tommy Biksen.Sport says Real Madrid have cooled their interest in the 27-year-old after the two clubs realised that their valuations of the player are poles apart.Tottenham are not willing to sell the playmaker for anything less than £105million, but Madriahama shirt in question is “the only college specific Tommy Bahama shirt in the United States!”

Now, try to imagine Nick Saban or Will Muschamp in a Tommy Bahama shirt (404 Error Mental File Not Found, right?) and you’ll have the cultural difference between the SEC and the Pac-12 in a nutshell, right?
