MADISON, Wis. Nathan Peterman Bills Jersey . -- Bob Suter, a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic "Miracle On Ice" hockey team, has died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 57. Suters death was confirmed by a spokesman for USA Hockey. The Madison, Wisc., native won a gold medal representing the United States at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y., and is the father of NHL star defenceman Ryan Suter, who currently plays for the Minnesota Wild. "Its a tough day for our sport, having lost a great friend and ambassador of the game," USA Hockey said in a statement. "Bob Suter will always be remembered for his role as a member of the 1980 Miracle on Ice Team that captivated our country and whose impact is impossible to measure. "His legacy, however, is far beyond that as he dedicated his life to advancing hockey and helping young people achieve their dreams. Bobs positive impact on our sport will be felt for generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Suter family at this difficult time." U.S. Olympic teammate Mark Johnson, now womens hockey coach at Wisconsin, said everyone was stunned and shocked to hear the news. "Its a sad day for not only the community of Madison but the hockey community who knew Bob and all of the players who he touched and who he gave an opportunity to play hockey and climb up the ladder," Johnson said in a statement released by the Badgers. "Whether its high school, onto college or onto the professional ranks, he touched a lot of kids and gave them an opportunity." Toronto Maple Leafs star Phil Kessel and sister Amanda expressed their condolences on Twitter. "Today is a very sad day," Phil Kessel wrote. "I lost a great coach friend and mentor. He made me into the player I am today and I will forever be grateful. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Suter family today. I will miss you forever Bob Suter." Amanda wrote that she was "deeply saddened with the news of Bob Suters death. He was such a great guy and friend since I was a little girl. He will be greatly missed." Suter starred at the University of Wisconsin from 1977 to 1979 and has been a fixture in that area beyond his playing career. He opened a sporting goods store in Madison after retiring. "I was extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Bob Suter," Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said in a statement. "The Suter name is synonymous with Badger hockey. Bob did tremendous work in the Madison and UW community to grow the sport of hockey. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Suter family." A seventh-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings in the 1977 NHL draft and a seventh-rounder of the Birmingham Bulls in the 1977 WHA draft, he went on to play 86 games in the Central Hockey League. "Bob was the ultimate teammate," Wisconsin mens hockey coach and college teammate Mike Eaves said in a statement. "He could skate like the wind and was as hard of a competitor that I ever knew. He has passed much too young." Suters brother Gary played 1,145 NHL games with the Flames, Blackhawks and Sharks and was on Calgarys 1989 Stanley Cup team. The Minnesota Wild, who employed Bob Suter as a scout, also released a statement of condolences for his family. "Not only was Bob a great hockey ambassador, he was a terrific person off the ice who will be greatly missed by all of us," the team said. Ryan Suter represented the U.S. at the Sochi Olympics 34 years after his father won a gold medal in Lake Placid. Nathan Peterman Womens Jersey . A day after FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke said three stadiums would not be ready in time for the Dec. 31 deadline, Brazilian officials said they actually plan to deliver all six remaining venues after that date. They claim only three are delayed, with the other three being handed over after the expected date only because of problems accommodating the schedule of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who wants to be present for the ceremonies. Tre Davious White Womens Jersey .

What might have been overlooked is the Bison didnt need to just pound opponents into submission, they could have a new winning formula of dramatic finishes. The Bison completed a postseason of heart-stopping wins Saturday with an unprecedented fourth consecutive FCS national championship, rallying past Illinois State, 29-27, on quarterback Carson Wentzs 5-yard touchdown run with 37 seconds remaining as 20,918 watched in near disbelief at Toyota Stadium. What great resolve by our guys, first-year coach Chris Klieman said afterward. Thats a great football team that we were able to beat. A lot of respect for Coach (Brock) Spack and Illinois State. Theyve got an unbelievable program and great players. We just made one more play, really, because it was a game of making plays, and we were fortunate enough to make one more play, and our hats off to those guys. Wentz, a redshirt junior, had served an apprenticeship under quarterback Brock Jensen in the first three title seasons. In following Jensen as the championship games most outstanding player, Wentz finished with 324 total yards (237 passing, 87 rushing) and both a touchdown run and pass, and the Bison (15-1) gained more than just bragging rights from fellow Missouri Valley Football Conference co-champion Illinois State in the first national title game that matched two teams from the same FCS conference. It seemed only a punch in the face would end NDSUs historic run and Illinois State nearly had it when transfer quarterback Tre Roberson ran for a 58-yard touchdown with 1:38 remaining to give the Redbirds (13-2) a 27-23 lead. He had a similar scoring run late in a national semifinal at New Hampshire, and it was a knockout blow. But when a field goal wasnt going to be enough for NDSU, the Bison dug for more resilience from their championship DNA. Wentz completed three passes to freshman wide receiver RJ Urzendowski on the final drive, including a 33-yarder to the Illinois State 5 as Redbirds safety DraShane Glass slipped to the turf with 50 seconds left. Following an NDSU timeout, the 6-foot-6 Wentz took a snap out of the shotgun, followed his left tackle and banged off a defender while lumbering into the Illinois State end zone for the go-ahead touchdown. Yeah, we actually called two plays right away, Wentz said about the discussion during the timeout, and something that I love about Coach (Tim) Polasek (the offensive coordinator) is right when that timeout had been called, I came over and I got on the headset and we started talking about what play to call, and he definitely took my input there, and it was just -- a relationship like that is so nice and so special for the coach to have confidence in me to kind of almost choose what play -- at least voice my input. We called both plays there and we were going to get on the ball if I didnt get in and run the other play, so fortunately we got in the first one. Keller had converted 117 straight extra points to that moment, but this one was blocked to keep NDSUs lead at 29-27 and vulnerable to a field goal. But on Illinois States desperate final drive, a Roberson pass to tight end James OShaughnessy bounded into the hands of Bison senior linebacker Esley Thornton at his teams 45, and the interception with 8 seconds left basically ended the game and kept the dynasty going. With our guys, you never saw any doubt in their mind, Kliemann said. Zay Jones Jersey. You never saw panic in their eyes. Weve obviously been in this situation before, even in the playoffs, and our guys just know that, hey, its our time. When you have the success that weve had over the past four years now, guys just know how to win, and when you know how to win, you just always feel you have that chance if you can get that last possession. Incredibly, most members of the NDSU senior class finished their careers with more national titles than defeats as the Bison have gone a combined 58-3 over the last four years - the first three titles under former coach Craig Bohl. But Illinois State, fifth-seeded in the playoffs and making its first national championship game appearance, made the second-seeded Bison work to keep their historic run going. Ill try to put it into words the best I can, said senior linebacker Carlton Littlejohn. Its an amazing accomplishment. You never dream of coming to college and winning four straight national championships, only losing three games. Thats something you only dream about, something that happens in video games or something like that. But to experience it right now, its unbelievable. Illinois State led 7-3 after the first quarter and didnt go away after the Bison scored 17 unanswered points to grab a 20-7 advantage late in the third quarter. OShaughnessy, the Redbirds big-statured, big-play tight end, sandwiched 41-and 3-yard touchdown receptions from Roberson around Adam Kellers third field goal of the game, and the Redbirds found themselves down only 23-21 with 8:05 left to play. When they got the ball again, Roberson, who was at Indiana University while NDSU won its first three titles, ran the perfect delayed draw, as he often does, by faking a handoff to running back Marshaun Coprich, and racing near his teams sideline for his 58-yard touchdown. NDSU was penalized for a false start before the first play of its ensuing drive, but Wentz quickly provided the composure by completing two straight passes to Urzendowski. The Bison went 78 yards on six plays in 1 minute, 1 second, rallying the way they did in the fourth quarter against South Dakota State in the second round of the playoffs and then against Coastal Carolina in the quarterfinals. Different script but same championship result for NDSU much to Illinois States dismay. It was a tremendous football game played by two very good teams, Spack said, and I felt that - I just told our players after the game that you didnt lose the game, you just ran out of time, just one of those scenarios. NDSU built its 20-3 lead as Keller sandwiched two 41-yard field goals around Wentzs 6-yard touchdown pass to tight end Luke Albers. John Crockett then scored on a 7-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter. Wentz was 15-for-22 for 232 yards and rushed for 87 yards on 16 carries. Urzendowski finished with 100 yards on five receptions, while Crockett gained 74 yards on 22 carries, finishing a mere six yards below 2,000 for the season. Kellers 11-point, three-field goal game gave him FCS single-season records of 146 points and 29 field goals. Roberson was only 11-for-23 for 157 yards, but three passes went for touchdowns, including a 13-yarder to freshman wide receiver Jon-Marc Anderson to open the scoring in the first quarter. Coprich carried the ball 16 times for 106 yards to go over 100 yards for the 14th time in 15 games and finish the season with an FCS-high 2,274 yards. But while the Missouri Valley got the de facto conference championship game that it wanted, only North Dakota State left with an even bigger prize - a fourth straight national championship. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
