CORAL GABLES, Fla. Blues Jerseys For Sale . -- The numbers sound superb. Miami gave up a mere 22 yards rushing in its opening game of the season, scored 10 touchdowns, set a school record with 42 points in a quarter, picked off two passes, blocked a punt and allowed only three points.So how should they react when watching the film?Horrified, Hurricanes defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said.He was serious. Even with many things going right, Miami still has plenty of work to do.What Miami dealt with after beating Florida A&M 70-3 likely wasnt any different than what Ohio State, Louisville, Michigan and Oklahoma State faced after they won openers by an average score of 68-9. Great-looking Week 1 scoreboards arent a cause for massive celebration, and not even the third-largest margin of victory in program history could dupe the Hurricanes into believing otherwise.I think most of our guys, the more mature guys anyway, understand when they make a mistake, Miami coach Mark Richt said Sunday, a day after his debut coaching his alma mater. They know we can get better.There was much to like. Miami had three running backs all eclipse 100 yards, Brad Kaaya passed for four touchdowns while barely breaking a sweat, the teams 13 pass completions went to nine receivers, nine players scored touchdowns and 29 Hurricanes found their way onto the defensive stat sheet.And a return to the AP Top 25 -- the next poll comes out Tuesday -- seems quite possible.Only eight current Miami players have appeared in a game for a ranked Hurricanes team. Kaaya isnt one of them; he was a high school senior when Miami was last part of the Top 25.If they rank us outside the Top 25, if they rank us top 25, 24, it doesnt matter, Kaaya said. I think weve got guys who are still hungry and are still going to keep going. This is a good win, a good team win, Coach Richts first win, but in the grand scheme of things we have a lot bigger fish to fry. You guys all know that. Weve got to win the big games, to be honest.Even with an easy win, Miami couldnt escape unscathed.The Hurricanes announced Sunday night that redshirt freshman linebacker Jamie Gordinier will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, another blow to a defense with major depth problems. Miami lost its three leading tacklers from last season after an investigation into their access to rented luxury cars, and started three true freshmen at linebacker on Saturday.Hence, thats why Diaz wants the players who remain to be horrified. He says problems on film can be good things -- since they promote more learning.Theres going to be a lot of things that we dont like, Diaz said. But now you finally have something to fix. You can tell them every day in practice -- theyre like `I hear you coach, I hear you -- and then they see it in a game and theyre like `Oh, yeah, we left that guy wide open. You make game corrections. Good football teams usually make a big jump from Week 1 to Week 2.The way to do that, he said, is to not overreact to how good a 70-3 win looks on paper.Its imperative that we come back with a mentality that we have got to improve off this performance next week, Diaz said.And if any further reminders are needed, their next opponent -- Florida Atlantic, which visits this Saturday -- gave Miami quite a few problems in the first half of their meeting on the Owls home field a year ago.Just because the first game ended up with that score, that cant help you relax, Miami receiver Braxton Berrios said. That should feed you. That should really drive you a little bit more. Thats what we can do. Green Blues Jerseys . Malkin got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. White Blues Jerseys . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. . 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. Indias only individual Olympic gold medallist Abhinav Bindra, missed out on a medal by the narrowest of margins in the 10m air rifle final, finishing fourth in a tight shootout at the Olympic Shooting Centre with a score of 163.8.The gold medal went to Nicolo Campriani (206.1) of Italy, Ukraines Serhiy Kulish bagged silver with a score of 204.6, while Vladimir Maslennikov of Russia scored 184.2 to win bronze..This is the last time Bindra will be seen in a shooting competition as he has announced his retirement after Rio and leaves the sport as Indias most decorated shooter and premier Olympic sportsman.It was an excruciatingly nerve-wracking final with the hall packed to capacity. Bindra walked in slightly awkwardly and took his place on Lane C. The announcer at the venue was quite vociferous but for Bindra and the rest of the shooters in the field, it was almost as if he didnt exist. Bindra was steady but unspectacular in his first series of six shots that included two scores of 9.7.Once the field started to whittle down after the eighth shot, Bindra, the only previous gold medalist in this event among the eight competitors suddenly found his mongrel. He reeled off an impressive sequence of high tens as the arena started to throb with expectation. Each shot was met by a vociferous cheers from the Indians in the hall as even hardened journalists whove seen it all before started to entangle themselves in the moment. Bindra, impassively as always, continued to move up the field and was in medal contention as shooters started to drop off. Four fell by the wayside, leaving only four.A 9.7 on his 15th shot and 10.2 on his 16th tied Bindra with Serhiy Kulish of Ukraine. The now or never moment was here, all that training all the toil all the effort down to one shot to be an Olympic medalist, whats more Indias first medal at the Olympics. Bindra shot a 10, but his rival responded with a 10.5. The dream was over. Bindra walked back, measured and collected as ever, though a collective gasp of despair engulfed the arena. He would finish his career as an Olympic gold medalist but also as a man who came so near yet so faar. Cheap Blues Jerseys. An official walking past this writer exclaimed We are having such bad luck, missing out by such small margins.That in essence is the whole point of this brutal, unforgiving sport. Fine margins between joy and agony. Bindra is only 33 but walks into the sunset perhaps with a tinge of agony of what might have been in Rio de Janeiro, where he arrived as a self-proclaimed hobby shooter and al
