rs. Rohit, who came at No. 6, and wicketkeepe
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Establishing consistency is at the core of the new-look Purdue football program under enthusiastic interim coach Gerad Parker.An inability to play with any consistency led to athletic director Mike Bobinskis decision on Oct. 16 to fire fourth-year head coach Darrell Hazell, who was 9-33, and replace him with 35-year-old Parker, who has a riverboat gamblers approach to facing No. 24 Penn State on Saturday in Ross-Ade Stadium.The Boilermakers (3-4, 1/3 Big Ten) played with energy and passion last Saturday in a 27-14 loss at No. 7 Nebraska, leading the Cornhuskers 14-10 at halftime. They will need to do it again against red-hot Penn State (5-2, 3-1), which upset then-No. 2 Ohio State 24-21 last weekend.Parker is eager to show fans and the rest of the Big Ten that Purdue is capable of back-to-back efforts that feature consistent play.I told somebody the other day that (football) is a very emotional game, and guys and teams that play at a high level are able to find that emotion each and every week, said Parker, who is also Purdues receivers coach. Thats something that weve got to understand here and do better here to get where we need to go. We did expend a lot of energy at Nebraska, and so did Penn State (against Ohio State). We will find a way. Thats my job.It wont be easy for a Purdue team that has not won consecutive games since November 2012, when Danny Hope was coach.This season, Purdue was beaten by 18 points by Cincinnati, by 43 points by Maryland and by 14 points by Iowa in games following its three victories.Purdue quarterback David Blough said Parker is making it clear that a poor performance following a good effort no longer will be tolerated.He tells us to just let it ride, which is the best way to put it, Blough said. He is one heck of a dude. I think anybody on this team would take a bullet for him. Adversity can pull the coward out of you or show the man that is inside. Something like this can make you bitter, or it can make you better. A lot of guys have chosen to make themselves better.Linebacker JaWhaun Bentley anticipates an even better effort against Penn State.Its no secret that there was a lot that went on last week, Bentley said. We definitely were into it and ready to play at Nebraska. We have to continue to lay it on the line. There is no such thing as a moral victory. I am not a believer in that.Our practices are a lot faster now, and our technique is better, too. Were not going to decrease it. We are going to increase it. Were looking to come out and win.Game notes Parker said Tuesday that senior defensive tackle Jake Replogle, who has missed two consecutive games because of headaches, likely will return against Penn State. ... While the Nittany Lions are 0-2 on the road, Purdue has lost seven in a row to Penn State by an average margin of 13.6 points. The Boilermakers most recent victory in this series was 20-13 in 2004 in State College, Pa., when former NFL quarterback Kyle Orton was the Purdue QB. Brandon Morrow Jersey . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff.

"Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. Brandon McCarthy Jersey . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Adrian Gonzalez Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . Indians 258 for 6 (Rohit 54*, Dhawan 51, Rahul 50) v West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI ScorecardRohit Sharma and openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul started the six-week long tour of the West Indies with fifties against West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI in Basseterre, as the Indians accumulated 258 runs in 93 overs. After captain Virat Kohli chose to bat, Dhawan and Rahul got the Indians off to a strong start with a 93-run stand in 27 overs.Dhawan retired out after his 51, an innings that featured seven fours. Like his opening partner, Rahul, too, retired out shortly after reaching his half-century, at the end of the 35th over.Kohli, however, could not build on his slow start and was caught behind for a 40-ball 14 off left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican, after adding 26 runs for the third wicket with Cheteshwar Pujara. Warrican struck again a few overs later when he bowled Ajinkya Rahane for 5.I think I bowled very well knowing that St Kitts [pitch] suits batting and India was off to a good start as well so to come andd pull back [the scoring] and bowl economically and get two wickets was very important for the team, Warrican said after stumps.dddddddddddd [I was] being patient and consistent, knowing that you couldnt blast out anyone on this wicket. So the key was to be patient and disciplined and just stick to the basics and thats what I did. It was just like any other game against an international team, the batting is always strong so my aim was just to bowl wicket to wicket and be consistent, allow them to make the mistakes and thats what I did.Pujara, the third Indian to retire out, made a patient 34 off 102 balls including five fours. Rohit, who came at No. 6, and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha then combined for a 47-run sixth-wicket stand off 97 balls that took the Indians past 200.After Saha was dismissed for 22, Rohit found able support from Amit Mishra, as they remained unbeaten on 54 and 18 respectively.
