    导出博客文章West Coast AFL coach Adam Simpson says his decision to hand Shannon Hurn the
    captaincy two years ago was a no brainer that has reaped big rewards.Hurn will
    notch his 200th game when he lines up in Thursday nights elimination final
    against the Western Bulldogs at Domain Stadium.The 29-year-old was appointed
    skipper at the end of 2014 when Darren Glass retired and West Coast have since
    transformed themselves back into a premiership contender.The Eagles reached the
    grand final in Hurns first year at the helm and while they could only manage
    sixth place this year, they enter the finals in the hottest of form after
    beating GWS, Hawthorn and Adelaide in consecutive weeks.Hurn has been a strong
    contributor and Simpson says the South Australian was the perfect choice as
    captain when the job came up two years ago.Well, he campaigned pretty hard in
    that pre-season in 2014, he joked on Monday.Its player vote as well as the
    coaches input.It was a bit of a no brainer in the end. The votes were pretty
    clear.To take over from someone like Darren Glass is a big void to fill. His
    leadership has been really important for our club.Hurn was quick to play down
    the significance of his milestone, saying West Coasts finals series was at the
    forefront of his thinking.But he said he was proud to join current and former
    teammates like Matt Priddis, Dean Cox, Glass, Daniel Kerr and Quinten Lynch in
    West Coasts 200 club. Custom

    . 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.

    the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his
    second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later.

    -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a
    torn tendon in his right hand. COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Its up to Barry Odom to put a
    halt to the negativity surrounding Missouri. The new coach certainly seems
    confident he can get the program back on its feet.Well, its going to be really
    hard to get me down, Odom said after the first day of fall workouts. I think
    weve got a chance to win championships here.The news has been all dismal, on and
    off the field, the last several months.The Tigers slid to 5-7 last year,
    including 1-7 to share the cellar in the SEC East, in Gary Pinkels final season
    before resigning to battle cancer. Two productive defensive linemen were
    dismissed before drills began, and thats not to mention carry over from campus
    upheaval.Protests last fall led to the team threatening to boycott a game if
    changes werent made in the administration. Pinkel and then-athletic director
    Mack Rhoades backed the players.Now theres a new coach and AD, too, with Jim
    Sterk appointed this week.Were not a campus of turmoil, Sterk said.The
    39-year-old Odom was defensive coordinator last year for a unit ranked ninth in
    the nation, allowing 302 yards per game, after resume-building the previous
    three seasons as defensive coordinator at Memphis. That earned the nod to
    replace Pinkel, who won consecutive SEC East titles in 2013-14 and is the school
    career wins leader with 118.Missouri will need to keep scores down again given
    concerns on the other side of the ball. The offense produced just 13.6 points
    per game, has no returning starters on the line and lacks proven producers at
    the skill positions, raising the challenge for new offensive coordinator Josh
    Heupel.Sophomore quarterback Drew Lock was highly touted out of high school but
    threw just four touchdown passes after taking over last fall.I told our guys
    weve got to live up to our expectations, not so much to media or conference or
    any of those things, defensive coordinator Demontie Cross said. We know what
    were cappable of.ddddddddddddKEY GAMESThe toughest stretch could be early in
    conference play with LSU (Oct. 1) and Florida (Oct. 15) both on the road. Both
    schools are projected to finish second in their respective divisions. Itll help
    a bit to have a week off between games.PREDICTIONA 7-5 finish is doable if the
    offense can produce just a little more and Missouri avoids stumbles but it very
    easily could be 5-7 again.BIG HITSDefensive line depth was a strength and itll
    be tested after the dismissal of Walter Brady Jr. for violation of team rules
    and Harold Brantley due to academics. Brady tied for the team lead with seven
    sacks.I cant wait for the year to show everybody, tackle Rickey Hatley said. The
    whole D-line is going to be real good.Junior end Charles Harris was a standout
    with seven sacks last season and senior linebacker Michael Scherer is an
    experienced hand. Dont forget sophomore tackle Terry Beckner, one of Missouris
    most heralded recruits in years and looking strong coming off knee
    surgery.Missouri must replace production of departed linebacker Kentrell
    Brothers, a second-team SEC pick.CAPTAINS WAITPinkel generally named captains on
    the first day of practice following team vote. Odom is waiting to see who steps
    up.Things change from the first day of camp before you get to Sept. 3, so Im
    challenging our team, Odom said.SEASON OPENERThe Tigers begin Sept. 3 at West
    Virginia, a much more challenging foe than in recent seasons. Skyler Howard set
    a Cactus Bowl record with 532 yards passing in a 43-42 victory over Arizona
    State. The Mountaineers were 8-5 last year and are predicted to finish seventh
    in the Big 12. Theyre inexperienced at linebacker and the secondary with just
    one starter back.---AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org '
