The same week Tennessee State cracked the STATS FCS Top 25, its biggest challenge of the season awaits. Jean Segura Diamondbacks Jersey .Sitting 25th in the poll, the Tigers make the three-mile trip to face Vanderbilt on Saturday.Theyll throw a lot more bodies at us than well be able to throw at them, Tennessee State coach Rod Reed said in regards to the SEC squads advantage in terms of depth and scholarship numbers. Weve been finding a way, and were going to get in there and were going to compete and keep it close and see what happens in the fourth quarter.The Tigers last started 6-1 in 2013, and were a missed field goal away at Eastern Illinois on Oct. 8 from perhaps being undefeated heading into this contest. Despite losing starting quarterback OShay Ackerman-Carter to a season-ending knee injury in the third game, Tennessee State ranks 18th in the FCS averaging 36.3 points and among the leaders with a turnover margin of plus-1.67.Senior backup quarterback Ronald Butler has thrown for 707 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed for three scores over the last three games.Weve done it really short-handedly, Reed said. Butler has done a very admirable job of running this football team. Were still short-handed a little bit, but our guys keep finding ways to win and thats what I like about this football team.Reed, however, is smart enough to know the task thats at hand against a FBS program -- even one thats 3-4. The Commodores are 1/3 in the SEC, but have allowed 62 points in those games and are coming off a 17-16 win at Georgia last weekend.Im just hoping they are still partying and celebrating that win, Reed joked.Vanderbilt has failed to score more than 17 points in all but two games this season, but Tennessee State has yielded an average of 28.6 since opening with a 44-0 rout of Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The Tigers are also likely to again be without talented defensive lineman Ebenezer Ogundeko, who began his college career at Clemson.That doesnt bode well for a defense thats allowed 455 rushing yards in the last two games. Theyll need to buckle down in order to stop Vanderbilts Ralph Webb, who posted back-to-back rushing games of at least 100 yards before being held to 48 on 19 carries against Georgia. Webb needs 350 yards to break Zac Stacys school record of 3,143.Though Tennessee State has its defensive issues, it ranks among the national leaders in both subdivisions with 12 interceptions. Senior cornerback and Michigan State transfer Ezra Robinson was named the Ohio Valley Conferences defensive player of the week after recording two of his four interceptions -- one returned 93 yards for a touchdown -- in last weekends 35-28 win over Eastern Kentucky.These guys fully understand what TSU brings to the table, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. Rod Reed has done a good job assembling talent. Defensively, theyve got guys on that side of the ball that make plays. We actually respect everybody. We prepare the same way for everybody we play.The Tigers fell 38-9 in their only other meeting with Vanderbilt in 2006. Tyler Clippard Diamondbacks Jersey . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Shelby Miller Jersey . Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. . LOUIS -- St. ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Calvin Johnsons retirement leaves a huge void for the Detroit Lions.Detroit will face defenses for the first time in a decade without one of its players drawing double coverage on almost every snap.Johnson walked away from the Lions and the league in March, announcing his retirement at the age of 30. The move rekindled memories of Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders cutting his career short with the same franchise.As great as Johnson was though, the Lions were not very successful even with the spectacular wide receiver in the lineup. They were 7-9 last season, finishing below .500 for the seventh time in his nine-year career.If Detroit cant protect quarterback Matthew Stafford better and fails to run the ball effectively, whether Johnson suited up for another season will likely be a moot point.Stafford has been sacked 89 times the past two years, ranking among NFL leaders. The Lions averaged a league-low 83.4 yards rushing per game last season.That is on us, guard Larry Warford said. We learned a lot from that and weve got to share that knowledge with the new guys.Detroits rookie general manager Bob Quinn, who worked his way up in the New England Patriots front office, tried to address a glaring need by drafting offensive tackle Taylor Decker in the first round, center Graham Glasgow in the third and guard Joe Dahl in the fifth round.All three of them are great players and I could see each of them playing key roles for us this year, Warford said.Here are some other things to watch as the Lions enter training camp:THE REPLACEMENTS: Detroit signed wide receiver Marvin Jones to a five-year, $40 million contract just days after Johnson announced his retirement. Jones will be the teams No. 2 option in the passing game behind Golden Tate. Jones set career highs with 65 receptions and 816 yards receiving last year in his third season with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Lions also hope one of the veterans they signed -- Jeremy Kerley, Andre Roberts and Andre Caldwell -- can become their No. 3 receiver. Detroit will also count on a pair of younger players, Corey Fuller and TJ Jones, becoming relatively prominent players after having limited roles.NEW BOSS IN TOWN: Quinnn has subtly reshaped Detroits roster, making a commitment to bolstering both lines and choosing not to make too big of a splash in free agency. Jean Segura Jersey. Team owner Martha Firestone Ford shook up the franchise last season, firing a pair of longtime executives, team president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew. She gave Quinn his first chance to lead an NFL front office, banking on him bringing some of what he learned from one of the leagues top teams to the Motor City. Quinn was the Patriots director of pro scouting for the previous four seasons after serving as assistant director of pro personnel for two years in his 16-year career with the franchise.COACHING CONTINUITY: Quinn could have fired Jim Caldwell and hired a new coach and staff, but allowed him to return with an 18-14 mark in two seasons with one loss in the playoffs. The Lions also retained offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, who replaced the fired Joe Lombardi midway through last season, and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, a head coaching candidate after last season. That makes things operate a little bit more smoothly, Caldwell said.HOT HAND: Stafford, drafted No. 1 overall by Detroit in 2009, is coming off the best stretch of his career. He threw 19 TDs and just two interceptions over the last eight games, six of which Detroit won after a 1-7 start. If wed have had a couple more games, I think wed have kept it heading even farther in the right direction, Cooter said. But hopefully, were going to pick up right where we left off.LEANING ON LEVY: The Lions are welcoming back linebacker DeAndre Levy, one of their top players when healthy. He played only one game last season, shortly after signing a four-year extension, because of a hip injury that led to season-ending surgery. Levy was a second-team, All-Pro player in 2014 thanks a mix of physical ability and a mental edge. Levy takes off so fast on his reads, Caldwell said. Jim Bob asked the question, `Does he know what plays coming? ...
