CHARLOTTE, N. Cheap Chicago Cubs Jerseys .C. -- NASCARs top series will be called the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series beginning next year.The change of name from the Sprint Cup Series comes with Monster Energys new deal to be the title sponsor of NASCARs top division.The new name was released Monday along with a new official brand identity that replaces the bar mark used by the sanctioning body since 1976. The new logo has been in development since early 2016 as NASCAR sought to refresh its brand. It was designed to pay tribute to the storied history of NASCAR, incorporating elements of all four previous marks since the companys inaugural season of 1948.---More AP auto racing: www.racing.ap.org Cheap Baltimore Orioles Jerseys . Listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et. The Raptors traded Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings on Monday, in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. Cheap Texas Rangers Jerseys . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. http://www.cheapmlbjerseysoutlet.com/?tag=cheap-san-diego-padres-jerseys . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year. "We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. The first half of the 2016 college football featured the emergence of a new star quarterback, the re-emergence of an old Pac-12 power and the end of an era at LSU.Texas is back! Nope.Houston to the playoff! Nah.Tom Herman to LSU? Tom Herman to Texas? Tom Herman to the Chicago Bears? This, unfortunately, has only just begun.With seven weeks of the season in the books, we assess the best and the worst of the first half.---MOST SURPRISING UNDEFEATED TEAMNo. 6 Texas A&MThe Aggies were unranked and appeared to be an unsettled program to start the season. Assistant coaches made offseason headlines for the wrong reasons . The five-star quarterbacks had fled and were replaced by former inconsistent Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight. There is no more hot-seat talk about coach Kevin Sumlin as the Aggies head to No. 1 Alabama for a game that could decide the SEC West on Saturday. There is still potential for things to go sideways for Sumlin and the Aggies, but so far A&M has replaced the swag with substance.---MOST DISAPPOINTING TEAMNotre DameThere are some serious candidates here. Oregon, but the Ducks were showing signs for crashing coming into 2016. Michigan State, but the Spartans were probably due for a reset season. Notre Dame, however, is a big hot mess . Seven games in and coach Brian Kelly has fired his defensive coordinator and created an unnecessary quarterback controversy. Even allowing the Fighting Irish some leeway for over inflated expectations, 2-5 and scrambling to get bowl eligible is unacceptable.---BEST COACHING JOB-HEAD COACHNick Saban, Alabama, and Urban Meyer, Ohio State.We often reward the coaches who exceed expectations and do the most with the least. Thats all well and good, but sustained excellence is really where its at. No. 1 Alabama won the national championship last year and is better this season with a freshman quarterback . No. 2 Ohio State lost one of the great NFL draft classes from one school of all time and the Buckeyes have not missed a beat.---BEST COACHING JOB-COORDINATORJustin Wilcox, defensive coordinator, Wisconsin.Could go back to Alabama for Lane Kiffin or Ohio State for Greg Schiano, but Wilcox is the pick as he re-establishes himself as one of the better defensive coordinators in the country. He took over a well-stocked group after Dave Aranda left for LSU, but the 10th-ranked Badgers are as feisty as ever.---BEST TURNAROUNDColoradoIt has been a long hard road back to relevance for the Buffaloes, but Mike MacIntyre has Boulder interested in its college football team again. CU has not won more than six games since 2004 and had just two Pac-12 victories in MacIntyres first three seasons. Now the Buffs (5-2) are a win away from bowl eligibility and 3-1 in conference with a legit chance to take the Pac-12 South. Props also to defensive coordinator and former USF coach Jim Leavitt for the most improved part of the team.---BREAKOUT PLAYER-OFFENSE (not named Lamar Jackson)Dede Westbrook, WR, OklahomaLots of good candidates here among receeivers, most notably Cals Chad Hansen and Syracuses Amba Etta-Tawo. Cheap Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys. Westbrook was the Big 12s offensive newcomer of the year last year so its not as if he is coming out of nowhere. His recent surge (26 catches for 574 yards), though, has him playing like an All-American and he has already surpassed last years numbers for receptions and yards.---BREAKOUR PLAYER-DEFENSEJoe Mathis, LB, WashingtonMathis has gone from solid player to an absolute force for the fifth-ranked Huskies in his senior season. He has already topped his career total for sacks with five and nearly doubled his career tackles for loss with 7.5 this season. Oregon coaches could still be searching game tape for play in which the Ducks handled Mathis.---BEST GAMEClemson 42, Louisville 36.Two great quarterbacks doing spectacular things. Talented players everywhere. Huge swings in emotion and momentum. Comebacks on both sides and clutch performances . All played in one of the best venues in college football. And it came down to 1 yard. Sure it was sloppy at times, but so much fun.---WORST GAMEMichigan 78, Rutgers 0Maybe the most noncompetitive conference game in the last 25 years of college football.---WORST OFFICIATINGThe officials who worked the Central Michigan-Oklahoma State.It is one thing to blow a judgment call. It is quite another to badly misinterpret a rule and that have that mistake cost a team a game. Both the MAC officials on the field and Big 12 replay officials earned suspensions.---WORST FIRINGLes Miles, LSULSU athletic director Joe Alleva wanted Miles out last season, but botched it and allowed Miles to gain a groundswell of support. So at first chance this season, after an ugly loss at Auburn dropped the Tigers to 2-2, Alleva canned Miles before the coach could go out and save himself again. It was time for a change in Baton Rouge. And if handled properly it could have been done 10 months earlier.---HOT-SEAT COACHESCooling contractsMark Stoops, Kentucky. Has a $12 million buyout. With assistants, firing him could cost more than $17 million .Steve Addazio, Boston College. Received an extension in 2014 that runs through 2020.WarmPaul Johnson, Georgia Tech; Mark Helfrich, Oregon; Gus Malzahn, AuburnWarmerCharlie Strong, TexasToastyDavid Bailiff, RiceCookedTim DeRuyter, Fresno State---HOT COACHES-GROUP OF FIVE (not named Tom Herman)Jeff Brohm, Western KentuckyP.J.
