There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. LOS ANGELES -- UCLA?coach?Jim Mora and Ohio State?coach Urban Meyer defended their assistants, who were alleged to have had knowledge of sexual abuse perpetrated by Jerry Sandusky at Penn State?in the 1980s and 90s in documents released this week.Tom Bradley, Moras defensive coordinator, and Greg Schiano, Meyers defensive coordinator, were both Penn State assistants under Joe Paterno during Sanduskys tenure. Both denied the allegations from a 2015 deposition by ex-Penn State assistant Mike McQueary that became public Tuesday. McQueary told Paterno he saw Sandusky rape a boy in a shower in 2001 and was a key witness in the Sandusky trial.I know this about Tom: He is a man of integrity, Mora told at Pac-12 media days Thursday. Hes been vetted by a number of different people as well as UCLA -- very, very thoroughly. It took us a long time to hire him because our university takes these things very seriously. So we went through the process of vetting his background and his stories and he made a statement and he stands by that statement and I stand by him. I feel comfortable with that.Bradley left Penn State in 2012 and worked a single season at West Virginia before being hired at UCLA before the 2015 season.Meyer told the Toledo Blade that he stands by Schiano, the former Rutgers?and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach who was hired by Ohio State this offseason.Theres no issue as far as I am concerned. I first heard about it several months ago and we had a long talk, Meyer told the Blade. Ive knoown Greg for 20-some years. Mason Rudolph Jersey. I have as much respect for Greg Schiano as I do any person -- not just any coach, any person. We had the chat and he told me everything that happened. He stands by his statement and we stand by his statement.According to the documents, McQueary said that Bradley was not shocked when told of the shower incident. Bradley said he knew of some things about Sandusky dating to the 1980s, McQueary testified.Bradleys representative Brett Senior issued a statement Tuesday afternoon.At no time did Tom Bradley ever witness any inappropriate behavior, it read. Nor did he have any knowledge of alleged incidents in the 80s and 90s. He has consistently testified as such. Any assertions to the contrary are false. When he became aware of the 2001 incident, it had already been reported to the University administration years earlier.McQueary also said that in the 90s, Schiano saw Sandusky in the shower with a boy.Schiano told ESPN on Tuesday: I never saw any abuse, nor had reason to suspect any abuse, during my time at Penn State.Mora said Thursday that hes not only standing up for his assistant coach.My first thought is always towards the victims, Mora said. It always has been as a father. Thats where my mind goes first. This has been drawn out a long time, and every time that a story resurfaces, Im sure that it creates more pain for the victims. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
