REGINA -- "Struggling" is an adjective that is not generally applied to the Montreal Alouettes, but there is no doubt the perennial powerhouse has fallen on hard times this CFL season. Shoes Discount Sale Online . The Alouettes are off to a 2-4 start, and now go on the road to face a Saskatchewan Roughrider team looking to avenge its first loss of the season. You can see all the action on TSN and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 4pm et/1pm pt. "It doesnt sit well with anybody," veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo told reporters Friday. "We are just not accustomed to being 2-4. Its very disturbing." Normally, this is the time of year when general manager Jim Popp would be touring NFL camps in search of import talent. Instead, he is on the sidelines as a replacement for fired head coach Dan Hawkins, trying to return the team to its former winning ways. "Its an evaluation as much as anything," said Popp, who considers himself a "transition" coach. "And it seems like its going in the right direction." Calvillo is convinced that the talent is there and he says the players have confidence in the coaching staff. "Its part of the cycle, part of football life," he said of the teams current woes, adding that he, personally, is determined to fight his way through it. "Im not a quitter." As scenarios go, Mosaic Stadium is not the ideal environment for a team that is sputtering as opposed to streaking. Popp knows that road games are a challenge at the best of times, and Ridervile in particular is "a very tough place" to play. The Roughriders announced a sellout crowd of 40,637 will take in Saturdays game. Calvillo has always loved competing in Saskatchewan, owing to the energized and energizing atmosphere created by the hometown fans. "At the same time," he said, "we have a job to do." For their part, the Roughriders are downplaying last weeks 42-27 loss to the Stampeders that ended their bid at a perfect season. "On defence, we could have done a lot more things, we know that," linebacker Craig Butler said. "This defence takes a lot of pride in everything we do. Well bounce back." Added defensive back Dwight Anderson: "This has been a great week in practice. Im looking forward to (Saturdays) game." Slotback Geroy Simon says he holds the Alouettes defence in high regard, particularly the teams secondary. "Theyre a veteran group and they play aggressively," he said. "I think weve just got to execute, thats all. We have to keep the ball out of (Calvillos) hands. We need to come up with first downs." Quarterback Darian Durant says the Roughriders are ready to move on from last weeks loss. "Definitely, the guys are a lot more motivated," he said. "(Last week) was a wake-up call for us and wake-up calls are good. We have to make sure we dont look behind us. We have to look ahead." By "looking ahead," Durant does not mean looking past the Alouettes. Indeed, he has been cautioning his teammates not to judge Montreal on its record. "We cant take them lightly," he said. "They have weapons all over the place." Although they have never been teammates, Durant has always admired Calvillo, for his ability to read defences and his penchant for building close relationships with his receivers. By observing Calvillo, he has also learned "how to be a pro." As recently as Friday, Saskatchewan head coach Corey Chamblin discussed with his players the importance of regaining that "winning attitude." He has dismissed the loss in Calgary as simply being one of those things. "It wasnt our night," he said.

Both sides of the deal have formally announced acquisitions: TFC introduced Jozy Altidore as a designated player on Friday, while their counterparts announced a three-and-a-half-year deal with Jermain Defoe. http://www.shoeswholesale.us/ . Alina Fodorova of Ukraine took third place. Broersen based her gold-medal performance on great high jumping, and finished with 4,830 points, while Theisen-Eaton, from Humboldt, Sask., set a national record of 4,768.BETHESDA, Md. -- Patrick Reed is not interested in talking about being top five in the world. He only cares about PGA Tour victory No. 4. Reed, who turned off some of his peers when he won at Doral and said he was among the top five players in the world, held it together Saturday at steamy Congressional for an even-par 71 to build a two-shot lead in the Quicken Loans National. As if Congressional wasnt difficult, the rest of the field now has to chase a guy who has won all three previous PGA Tour events when he had at least a share of the lead going into the final round. On a day when making pars often meant moving forward, Reed overcame three bogeys in a seven-hole stretch by playing the last five holes at 1 under for a two-shot margin over Seung-yul Noh, Freddie Jacobson and Marc Leishman. "You cant get ahead of yourself," Reed said. "If you think about having the lead or if you think about what youre going to do coming down 18, youre going to lose focus on the rest of the holes." Reed was at 6-under 207. The final round will have a player in the last group with a red shirt, only it wont be tournament host Tiger Woods, who missed the cut. Reed has been wearing a red shirt and black pants on Sunday to pattern himself after Woods. He also cited Woods when asked which player was his idol in being confident. Reed took that to a new level when he won at Doral and said he felt he was among the top five in the world. He currently is No. 29. "You cant play this game with lack of confidence," Reed said. "So just one of those things that, you know, were all trying to strive for the same thing, and some guys get there and thats all were trying to do." Dating to his first PGA Tour win at the Wyndham Championship last August, the only top 10s Reed has had have been victories. He attributes his sporadic play to his wife having their first child last month. Now, Reed says his life is becoming settled and his game is rounding into shape. Noh finished off his 5-under 66 -- the best score of the third round -- about the time the leaders went off. He was at 4-under 209, which looked better by the hour. Jacobson made four birdies in his opening eight holes to reach 8 under, only to take double bogey on the 11th hole and a sloppy bogey on the par-5 16th hole. He wound up with a 71. Leishman was still only one shot behind until he failed to get up-and-down for par on the 17th and fell to a 73. Wholesale Cheap Shoes China. "At the start of the day, we probably knew that anything under par was going to be a really good score," Leishman said. "I actually said to my caddie, It feels a bit like a U.S. Open because there were a few pins that you really didnt have a chance to get at. But I think thats good. Its a tough golf course. Its long. If youre not in the fairway, you have no chance." Reed was not in the fairway on two holes where he made birdie, and he managed to pull it off. In deep rough to the right of the fourth fairway, he was 169 yards away and decided to smash a 9-iron to clear the bunker instead of trying a soft 8-iron. It worked out perfectly. The ball bounded past the hole and up a slope, and slowly rolled back to within inches of the cup. "I thought there was about a 3 per cent chance I could cover that bunker, and I ended up being perfect," Reed said. "It was nice whenever I saw it roll up the hill and I saw it come back down because I thought, All right, we have about 5, 7 feet for birdie. Didnt know it was a couple inches, which was nice." Oliver Goss of Australia, the U.S. Amateur runner-up last year making his second pro start, was part of a four-way tie for the lead going into the third round. He was still in the mix until a three-putt from 10 feet for double bogey on No. 11. He had a 76, though he was still only five shots behind. Justin Rose was within two shots of the lead after a hot start, only to make bogey on the par-5 ninth and a double bogey on the 11th hole. He battled back with a pair of late birdies, only to drop another shot on the 18th for a 71. Even so, he was only three shots behind. This could be a perfect fit for a U.S. Open champion. None of the last 26 players who teed off broke 70. Rose took note of the rapidly changing colour of the greens, and his only fear was officials watering the greens overnight, which would make it easier for the early starters. "Id be a fan of them letting them go a little bit and making this a tough tournament and sort of having another U.S. Open," Rose said. "That would be my wish right now. But obviously, the course is firm. Wedges were releasing 10 yards by the end of the day. Its definitely a test. It was fun. I enjoy that type of golf." ' ' '
