ATHENS, Ga. Wholesale Shoes China . -- Georgias upset of then-No. 8 Auburn gave fans and recruits a much-needed glimpse of where first-year coach Kirby Smart hopes to take the program.It also made some upperclassmen wish they could stick around for that future.As he relished Saturdays win with teammate Chuks Amaechi, junior linebacker Lorenzo Carter said he wished he could be a recruit who was starting his career under Smart.We were walking to my car and we were just talking about how ... I wish I were a recruit for this game, Carter said Monday. It was an amazing atmosphere. It just showed the path for the University of Georgia and the program, where Kirby wants to take us.The 13-7 win over Auburn gave Smart the signature game he needed from his otherwise lackluster debut season. It also kept alive the chance for a strong finish for Georgia (6-4, 4-4 Southeastern Conference), which will look for its third straight win when it plays Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.Smart was animated in his jubilant postgame celebration, giving high-fives and hugs to players and reaching up to slap hands with fans as he exited the field. He was back in his restrained game-week mode on Monday.I certainly felt there was good energy in the building, good energy after the game, whether it be in the locker room or with those guys, Smart said, adding his time with recruits was certainly positive even though none immediately promised to sign with Georgia.Senior defensive back Maurice Smith, who returned an interception for Georgias only touchdown, said it was important for current and future players to see the Bulldogs show they can beat a top 10 team.I think it will be a great accomplishment and also a confidence-builder for the team and the coaching staff, just to let us know were still able to contend and compete with the best, Smith said.Georgia has back-to-back wins over Kentucky and Auburn after losing four of five games, including a devastating home loss to Vanderbilt.Weve shown a lot of resiliency and also just a lot of strength, going through the challenges that weve faced, injuries and also being down in games, Smith said. We have showed a lot of perseverance.Smith is a graduate transfer from Alabama, where Smart was the defensive coordinator. He said he has been surprised to see Smart more relaxed despite having more responsibility.I think hes a lot more loose right now, more free, Smith said. Hes the head coach, so you would think that would give more pressure to him, but I think he has taken it the best way he can. Hes showing that as a head coach he really enjoys his job and Im very happy for him.Game notes Smart said he hopes OG Isaiah Wynn, who left the game with a sprained knee, and LB Natrez Patrick, who was held out with a shoulder injury, can return this week. Another starter, DT DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle (ankle) also may return this week. ... Georgia disclosed before Saturdays game that punter Marshall Long suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice, leaving Brice Ramsey as the starter. Ramsey also is the third-string quarterback. Long is the only Georgia player to suffer a season-ending injury.---More AP college football: Clearance Nike Shoes China . Here are his mid-season NBA awards.  MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. Cheap Shoes Outlet . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. .com) - The red-hot Los Angeles Kings will try to extend their winning streak to a season-high seven games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for Sundays clash at Rexall Place. EUGENE, Ore. -- One one-hundredth of a second.After receiving a kidney transplant last September and going through a second kidney surgery in October, after going through months of recovery, training and daily medication, Aries Merritt missed making the U.S. Olympic team Saturday by just one one-hundredth of a second.Racing in the 110-meter hurdles final at the U.S. Olympics trials, Merritt thought he crossed the line in second or third place. But after an agonizing delay, his place was shown as fourth with a time of 13.22, just behind third-place finisher Jeff Porter (13.21).Merritt was obviously disappointed, but he said he had come to grips with it. After all, he has a gold medal in the event from the 2012 Olympics and is still competing against the worlds best despite once thinking he could never run again because of his failing kidneys. Not making the Olympics is far better than being hooked to a dialysis machine for the rest of your life.Nothing can be worse than being told you can never run again, even if you come up a little short here, he said. Ive been to the Olympics, I won the Olympics. Ive broken the world record. So, I mean, someone else can have a turn.Even though Merritt will not compete in Rio, he should still be an inspiration to everyone. While you watch Michael Phelps, Simone Biles and Usain Bolt this August, also keep Merritt and what he overcame prominently in mind.After winning gold in 2012, his kidneys began to fail in 2013. Even with his kidney function no higher than 15 percent, he finished third at the world championships in Beijing late last August. He then underwent a transplant just days later in Arizona, receiving a kidney from his older sister, LaToya Hubbard.And he was only one one-hundredth of a second from making the Olympics again the following summer.It hasnt even been a year since the transplant, only 10 months, Hubbard said. For him to put his heart on the line and just miss at the team, I dont look at it as a failure or coming up short. Hes still on top. Hes still an Olympic gold medalist and still the world-record holder. He may not be able to defend that title, but nobody can take away what he did.No, nobody can take that away. But what should they take away from what he has done and overcome?People should just know that no matter what youre going through in life, if you keep your mind focused on something you want to accomplish, anything is possible, Merritt said. Discount Shoes China. At world championships last year in Beijing, I had roughly no kidney function -- under 15 percent -- and I was still able to do amazing things.This time was a little different because I was compromised by the surgery. Me being sliced open, and my muscles shifted and putting a new organ in and me getting adjusted to the meds, its a lot to comprehend. People dont understand the severity of what Ive been through. Despite the fact Im still out here doing the best I can.Merritts kidney doctor, Les Thomas, says that not only should people look to the hurdler for inspiration -- a way to say no matter how dark it may be, there is always a brighter spot -- they should look to his sister as a hero, as well. She demonstrated extraordinary altruism, giving him a kidney.Thomas also says people should take this story as a reason to consider organ donations. Donating a kidney is not that risky -- you only need one -- but the waiting list can be many years for a transplant.They may not have anyone in their lives who can give them a kidney and they will wait and wait and wait because there is a huge demand for kidney transplants, Thomas said. And sometimes they will pass away with no kidney ever coming to them. ... If [more people donated], we would have a lot less people on the waiting list and less people would die.Hubbard, who gave birth to her daughter the previous year, said she never worried about any risk in giving up her kidney. She simply asked her brother for the phone number of the Mayo Clinic so she could schedule a time.Let me go through this process and get on a table and help my brother out, she said. He had something in his body that was dying and I have something that was living.She gave it to him. And because she did, Merritt is alive and healthy and competing. And inspiring.This is still just a beginning, Hubbard said. We still have the 2020 Olympics ahead and two world championships. I think this is eye-opening for kids and others. ...Always extend a hand and pay it forward. ' ' '
