Theres a lot of things he did behind the scenes

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31 Buy . -- Alabamas potent tailback tandem Trent Richardson and Eddie Lacy took turns sprinting toward the end zone. North Texas never got there at all. Richardson and Lacy each had a pair of long touchdown runs and career rushing highs of 160-plus yards to make a little backfield history, and No. 2 Alabamas defence smothered the Mean Green in a 41-0 victory Saturday night. The Crimson Tide (3-0) had never had two backs run for even 150 yards in the same game. Richardson and Lacy covered the yardage in big chunks. "To break free in Bryant-Denny is always a good feeling," Richardson said. To do it a couple of times is even better. "Thats one of the best feelings as a running back to know you dont have to worry about nobody touching you or hitting you," Lacy said. "The offensive line did everything they were supposed to do, the wide receivers blocked downfield. Getting the touchdowns is one of the best feelings ever." Richardson scored three times -- including a 58-yarder and a career-long 71-yarder -- and had most of his 167 yards on the two long ones to help Alabama race into its showdown with No. 14 Arkansas. He had 24 yards at halftime against the Mean Green (0-3) and the nations 117th-rated defence. Lacy scored on runs of 43 and 67 yards and gained 161 yards. Alabamas defence recorded its first shutout since a 45-0 victory over Chattanooga on Nov. 21, 2009, thanks to a blocked field goal by Robert Lester and a goal line stand in the final minutes. The Tide racked up 347 yards rushing and outgained North Texas 586-91. First-year North Texas coach Dan McCarney, who spent three seasons at Florida vying for league titles against Alabama, thinks his new team faced another contender. "We obviously know what a national championship team looks like by coaching on one at Florida and playing one tonight," McCarney said. "I think they have the pieces in place to go and compete for a title this season. Theyre just fast, relentless and physical playmakers. They suffocated our offensive line. Every time we looked to build some momentum, they continued to dominate our front." Despite the big runs, Alabamas physical, aggressive defence set the tone against a team that is now 1-42 against ranked opponents and is off to its fourth 0-3 start in five years. North Texas had 25 yards and one first down in the opening half and only crossed midfield twice. Leading rusher Lance Dunbar gained 16 yards on 17 carries. Tide quarterback AJ McCarron, meanwhile, completed 15 of 21 passes for 190 yards before giving way to backup Philip Sims in the fourth quarter -- and part of the second. The running backs didnt steal the show until the second half. Richardson ran his season total to eight touchdowns while he and Lacy together averaged 16.4 yards on 20 carries. The game went from dominating to downright ugly in a 15-minute span, starting with Richardsons 58-yarder down the left sideline in the third quarter. Lacy then burst untouched through the line on the only play of a drive early in the fourth to reach the final margin. Despite the lopsided score and wire-to-wire domination, there was plenty for Tide coach Nick Saban to find fault with ahead of the Tides biggest test so far against fellow Southeastern Conference Western contender Arkansas. Alabamas offence dominated between the 20s but stalled several times in the red zone. The Tide had to settle for two field goals by Jeremy Shelley plus two missed attempts. North Texas also racked up four sacks and recovered fumbles by both Tide quarterbacks. All that only made a cosmetic difference on the scoreboard and gave coach Nick Saban some teaching points after a third straight easy win. "The big message here is every time you dont pay attention to detail, every time you dont do the little things right, the consequences can be, you know, bad," Saban said. Just not particularly costly against a 45-point underdog. The Tide scored on its first four possessions with McCarron picking apart a defence that allowed 563 passing yards to Houston last week. The defence, on the other hand, dominated throughout. The shutout stood after North Texas opted to go for a touchdown in the final minutes instead of kicking a short field goal. Backup quarterback Andrew McNultys fourth-down pass from the 3 sailed incomplete. Alabama outgained the Mean Green 282-25 in the first half. Lacy scored on his 43-yarder run, and Richardson scored on a comparably mundane 4-yarder. Alabama has scored at least 17 first-half points in seven straight games. Alabama wide receiver Darius Hanks made his season debut after sitting out the first two games under the NCAAs redshirt rule. He had two catches for 20 yards. Nike Air Huarache Cheap Uk .

The Jays officially parted way with Arencibia on Monday by declining to tender a contract offer to the fourth-year catcher. The move came after Anthopoulos signed Navarro to a two-year, US$8-million deal. "Dioner had a wonderful year last year in 240 at bats, and we think that theres some upside there, especially considering his age," the Blue Jays GM said on a conference call Tuesday. "We just think its a nice fit, and obviously well find out." Arencibia struggled through the worst season of career in 2013, with a .194 batting average, 21 home runs and 55 RBIs. The 27-year-old fan favourite, who began his Blue Jays career with so much promise -- homering on his first major-league pitch in 2010 -- struck out 148 times this past season, 15th most in Major League Baseball. Anthopoulos said he has no idea why Arencibia regressed so much last season. "I wish I did. I do think hes going to bounce back," Anthopoulos said. "He was a little banged up, and one thing about J.P., hes a very durable guy, very tough, plays through a lot of injuries. There was a time we almost put him on the (disabled list), he wanted to keep playing, he battled through it and grinded through it, and Ive seen him play with a broken hand and things like that. "But I really dont know, certainly we didnt expect him to have that type of year. .. Obviously hes very proud and has extreme pride in his job, and I think it may have just worn on him." Still, Anthopoulos said the decision to replace Arencibia wasnt made until the "last few weeks or so." The 29-year-old Navarro, a 10-year veteran from Venezuela, has served mostly as a backup but was an all-star with Tampa Bay in 2008. He hit .300 with a career-high 13 home runs in 89 games for the Chicago Cubs last season. He also had 34 runs batted in. "Navarro was someone who has pretty good contact rate, low strikeouts, prretty good on base skills, been able to take a walk and work the count," Anthopoulos said. Cheap Nike Air Huarache Triple Black. "From a game-calling standpoint, the work that we did on him, everyone really raved about his game-calling, and how guys love throwing to him." Anthopoulos said Navarro -- whos also played for the New York Yankees, Los Angeles, Cincinnati and the Chicago Cubs -- is keen to get return to a starting role in the majors. "The fact that Dioner has played over a hundred games three times in his career, has been an all-star and is only 29, that certainly factored into the decision," he said. "Dioner is very motivated and very hungry to get back to being that everyday guy, he just hasnt had an opportunity to be the everyday guy since he left the Rays." The GM said he called Arencibia on Sunday night to let him know his plans. Through his struggles on the field, the catcher became a lightning rod for criticism this past season when the Jays were failing to live up to lofty pre-season expectations. The catcher lashed out on Twitter at Sportsnet analysts Dirk Hayhurst and Gregg Zaun over their negative comments. He then deleted his Twitter account, posting in a final three-part tweet to his some 145,000 followers: "Its unfortunate to see how words are twisted to make false stories. "I give way too much of myself to have others try and make me out to (be) something/someone Im not." "I will no longer be on twitter," he said. "Thanks to all the fans who support and praying for the others that hate. God bless." Anthopoulos said in the "grand scheme of things," the fact Arencibia vented his frustration on Twitter wasnt a big deal, and said there were never any off-field issues with the former Jays catcher. "I think he was probably one of our best guys in the community, always was available, always was a great supporter of the ball club, any time we had a need in the off-season," Anthopoulos said. "Theres a lot of things he did behind the scenes that no-one saw so to me he was outstanding." wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap soccer jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china ' ' '
