Cheap Geron Christian Jersey . -- Molly Hannis went to bed Monday night with a singular goal in mind: parlaying her top seed in the 100-meter breaststroke into a slot on the U.S. Olympic team.She woke up to news that broadened her vision.Like so many athletes with University of Tennessee pedigrees, Hannis revered mold-breaking basketball coaching icon Pat Summitt, whose death at age 64 was announced Tuesday morning.Hannis and her teammates at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials in Omaha were the only Vols in competition anywhere in the country on Tuesday. There were about 30 athletes from the college program and the post-graduate Tennessee Aquatics club. The Tennessee contingent caucused and decided to wear orange to distinguish themselves from the crowd. They snipped lengths of purple ribbon, the color adopted by Alzheimers disease awareness advocates, to wear around their wrists.As for the 24-year-old Hannis, I just wanted to honor her with my race, she said.Hannis fell just short of booking a trip to the Rio de Janeiro Games, finishing third with a time of 1:06.65 behind Indiana Universitys Lilly King (1:05.20) and SwimMAC Carolinas Katie Meili (1:06.07). Hannis will have another Olympic shot, in the 200-meter breaststroke, later this week.Not quite what I wanted, Hannis said of her effort on Tuesday night. I learned a lot, though, through all the races. I think I just got a little bit frantic at the end.Summit touched the lives of thousands of people, changed Tennessee athletics, changed womens sports in general, said Hannis, who met Summitt at a football game in 2012, the same year the legend officially stepped down from her head-coaching position after publicly revealing she had early onset dementia, Alzheimers type.Its been a very emotional day, Hannis said. I cant say it any other way other than that she was a truly extraordinary woman and Im glad I got to know [Summitt] what little I did.Christine Magnuson, the 2008 100-meter butterfly silver medalist, was Tennessees last U.S. Olympic swimmer.Swimming and diving coach Matt Kredich, hired to head the Tennessee womens team in 2005, said Summitt had a profound influence on him and his colleagues.She coached the coaches, he said, adding that Summitt regularly invited them to her home for dinner and offered to talk to recruits during their campus visits.I felt like I wanted to write down and remember and live everything she said, said Kredich, who has led both the mens and womens swimming and diving program since 2012. She carried so much gravity.During Kredichs first year as the womens coach, he faced a thorny disciplinary issue, when some of his swimmers were cited for underage drinking. Summitt asked to speak with them.She said, The people who came before you set a standard, and its not your right to diminish that standard, Kredich recalled. I swear she stared right through every person in that room. Cheap Redskins Jerseys . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. Womens Redskins Jerseys . Galatasaray said in a statement on its website Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4. http://www.cheapredskinsjerseyselite.com/ . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars. MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota football coach Tracy Claeys doubled down Sunday on his support for players who boycotted practices and threatened to skip a bowl game if 10 teammates suspended after a sexual assault investigation werent reinstated.Speaking publicly for the first time since a standoff between 110 Golden Gophers football players and the administration, Claeys said he understands the players frustration with a Title IX investigation that they felt was inherently unfair to teammates who were accused of assaulting a woman at an off-campus dorm in September.As kids, they have no problems being held to a higher standard than the university requires and should require, Claeys said after Minnesotas practice. This is all about the due process.Claeys also clarified a comment he made on WCCO radio on Sunday morning when he said he was risking his job by supporting the players. The coach said he was just advising his players of possible ramifications during a team meeting on Thursday, before the team made the announcement to boycott.I was a sounding board for them and it was their decision, Claeys said. I made sure to make sure that they knew what the possible fallouts could be and we went through all those things. ... I was there to make sure that they were doing it for the right reasons and they knew what the consequences could be.The boycott ended Saturday when the team backed down and said they would play in the Dec. 27 Holiday Bowl against Washington State in San Diego, even though officials declined to reinstate their suspended teammates. The players agreed after getting assurances that those accused will get a fair hearing next month.After the entire team announced the boycott Thursday, Claeys publicly backed his players.Have never been more proud of our kids, Claeys tweeted at the time. I respect their rights (and) support their effort to make a better world!Claeys said Sunday he wished he would have chosen his words more carefully in the tweet, but said he did not regret sending it.If you just show support for the players behind closed doors, youre going to have a group of them that dont believe you, he said. I needed to do that in a public way and I tried to do it as short as possible. ... It was all about me supporting their actions to try to improve the due process. Not just on this campus but other campuses.Claeys said his players were not condoning sexual assault or harassment in any way. But they believed their suspended teammates were denied due process.Officials announced the suspensions TTuesday after an internal investigation determined the 10 players violated school conduct codes in an encounter involving a woman and several players on Sept. Cheap Shaun Dion Hamilton Jersey. 2.According to the police report, the woman told police she had consensual sex with two men that night, but that she did not consent to sexual contact with other men who were present, including players. According to universitys more detailed internal report, she told university investigators that she believed 10 to 20 men had sex with her that night, though she wasnt sure because she had memory gaps from drinking. Prosecutors declined to press charges, saying there was insufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, but the university uses a lower bar in student discipline cases.Linebacker Nick Rallis told WCCO the players believe the boycott succeeded, even though nobody was reinstated, because they believe it will ensure that athletes at Minnesota and other colleges who are accused of misconduct in the future get fair hearings.The Title IX investigative process has become a hotly-debated topic on campuses around the country. Opponents argue that school investigators are often not professionals and do not have subpoena power or the ability to put a witness under oath.Proponents say the problem of sexual assault on college campuses is too important, especially after the Department of Education threatened to pull federal aid for public schools if they did not increase their efforts to address the problem.Minnesota President Eric Kaler said Saturday that he understood that Claeys position.Coaches are in a challenging position, Kaler said. They need to support their players. They need to motivate their players. At the same time, they need to be responsible for their actions, and there are times in which those two demands put coaches in very difficult positions.And I think some of our coaches around this issue were in that very difficult position and well talk about that with them and try to improve both their understanding and our understanding.Claeys said he has spoken with athletic director Mark Coyle several times since Thursday and is not concerned about his job at the moment.I understand why (the suspensions) were made, Claeys said. But as for the players, the due process part was the part I did agree with on the players.---Associated Press Writer Steve Karnowski contributed to this report.
