St. Reggie Nelson Jersey . Louis, MO (Sports
Network) – Rick Majerus is currently in a California hospital undergoing
evaluation and treatment for an ongoing heart condition and will not coach the
Saint Louis mens basketball team next season. Jim Crews has been named interim
head coach as Majerus takes a leave of absence “Coach Majerus is not only a
colleague, but a dear friend, so this is a difficult time,” Crews said. “We are
fortunate to have a group of outstanding young men. This past year, they have
been a delight to work with, and our staff is excited to serve them. Hopefully,
our fans will rally behind this team and enjoy a great season.” Crews was an
assistant under Majerus last season and helped guide the Billikens to their
first NCAA Tournament since 2000. The team lost its second game in the tourney,
bringing Majerus record to 95-69 in his five years at SLU. “I appreciate what
Rick has done to return SLU mens basketball to national prominence,” SLU
president Lawrence Biondi, S.J. said. “I know that he would like to be here with
his players and coaches this season, and all of us at SLU will keep Rick in our
thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.” Geno Atkins Youth Jersey . —The Los Angeles

headline injury-marred UFC 149 in Calgary, but he is vowing to give disappointed
fans their moneys worth. Faber (26-5-0) will meet Renan Barao (30-1-0 with one
no contest) for the interim bantamweight title as UFC comes to Alberta for the
first time. The fight came about after champion Dominick Cruz was sidelined for
the year with a knee injury. Then injuries to other fighters prompted a venue
shift to the Saddledome from Las Vegas. “I dont feel pressure, because I know Im
going to deliver,” Faber said Thursday during a conference call. “Ive never had
a dull fight in my life. Ive watched Barao. Baraos the type of fighter that will
always have an exciting fight. Were going to go in there and try to think each
other out from the get-go.” Faber, a 33-year-old Isla Vista, Calif., native,
will get his first UFC title shot on a card that has been completely overhauled.
All of the originally-scheduled fights were scrapped because of injuries. Faber,
whose nickname is the California Kid, was slated to meet Barao last month in Las
Vegas, a site the American preferred. But looking back, he called the extra time
to prepare “a breath of fresh air.” While Faber has received most of the hype
surrounding the fight, Barao, a 25-year-old Brazilian, enters the bout on a
29-fight unbeaten streak. Barao also vowed to put on a good performance for
disgruntled fans. “I want to show them all that I have,” said the
Portuguese-speaking Barao through an interpreter. “I want to put on my best
fight, and I want to leave there victorious.” Fans have expressed their outrage
at the revised match schedule, which will have six Canadians on the undercard.
Following the changes to the event whhich quickly sold out, many fans—a
number of whom have spent thousands to travel to Calgary from Saskatchewan and
other locales—posted their tickets for sale on various websites. Anthony Munoz Jersey. Others vented their
frustrations on Twitter. UFC president Dana White said the injuries to the
original combatants forced unprecedented challenges for his organization. “This
is the craziest card of all time,” said White. But he contended that no
spectator will have cause for complaint by the time the show is over. “The
people who got stung in this thing were a lot of scalpers,” said White. “Thats
who got stung. I can tell you this right now, if youre a UFC fan and you bought
a ticket to Calgary, youre going to get exactly what youve paid for.” He said
the title fight has important future title implications while several hopefuls
are vying for a shot to become champion. The revised card is also a testament to
UFCs ability to deliver quality fights. “If this was a boxing card, this card
would have been postponed,” said White. “It would have been gone. We built
another card. This is not just about putting a fight together, but the fighters
coming up and taking these big fights.” Tom Wright, the former Canadian Football
League commissioner who serves as UFCs director of Canadian operations, said the
homegrown talent on display will also add to the excitement. Among the Canadian
fighters, relative newcomer James Head (8-2-0) of Mississauga, Ont., will take
on veteran Brian Ebersole (50-14-1) of La Porte, Ind. Despite the fans questions
about the revised cards quality, there is no doubt UFC will return to Calgary in
the future. “I can assure you: Well be back to Calgary,” said Wright. ’ ’ ’
