go back to 1990, when officials mistakenly gave Colorado

LONDON -- Andy Murray had already grabbed the headlines by winning his second Wimbledon title, but Heather Watson was determined to play her part. Daniel Royer Jersey .Walking out onto Centre Court after the Scot beat Milos Raonic, Watson and partner Henri Kontinen won the mixed doubles final, beating Colombias Robert Farah and Anna-Lena Groenefeld 7-6, (5), 6-4.It was Watsons first Grand Slam title, and the perfect way to bounce back from the misery of her first-round exit in the singles, ensuring Britain finished the Wimbledon fortnight with champions in five separate events for the first time.I was following the whole of Andys match, she told a news conference. I thought hed win today. He played brilliant. He did everything right. I was watching in the changing rooms when he won.Its just so nice to see him do well here and win. Then to get the two Brits, or three, four win today, is great.It has been a fantastic championships for Britain, with Gordon Reid winning the first singles wheelchair final here on Sunday, having won the doubles with fellow Briton Alfie Hewett on Saturday.Jordanne Whiley, from Birmingham, also won the ladies wheelchair doubles final on Sunday with Japanese partner Yui Kamiji and it was the relatively recent introduction of wheelchair events which brought about Britains landmark.Ill remember this forever, added Watson. Its been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to be a Grand Slam champion. I would take anything, singles, doubles, mixed doubles. Yeah, Ive got one of those now. I mean, Im just really happy.With her victory, Watson became the first woman to win the mixed doubles title since Jo Durie in 1987 -- another good stat the 24-year-old said.Who would have thought were here as champions, Watson added. For me, after such a horrible first-round loss. I made it to the last day of Wimbledon, which has been always one of my goals to reach just the second week of a slam.Couldnt have chosen anybody better than with Henri. He made our time on court so fun. Off the court as well, like warming up together. It was just fun and easy. Yeah, Im just so freaking happy.Some people say its fun, but dont really have fun. We did. We didnt think about winning. We just wanted to go out there and just enjoy our time and just try and play well. Now were Wimbledon champions.Kontinen joked they would retire from mixed when asked if the partnership would continue. Their feat was made even more impressive given they had never played together before this week.Watson was introduced to Kontinen through the Finns British coach,?Chris Eaton, and they signed up for the larger Wimbledon draw after missing the cut at the smaller French Open draw due to Watsons ranking.They may have been the last match on Centre Court but Watson was ready for the champions dinner.That was my preparation for the match, she said. I was picking out my dress in the changing rooms. Im all sorted. Ill be there. Roy Miller Red Bulls Jersey . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Custom New York Red Bulls Jerseys . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. STILLWATER, Okla. -- The officiating mistake was a doozy -- and it cannot be fixed. The play that followed was even more astonishing.One of the oddest endings imaginable left Oklahoma State stunned and Central Michigan celebrating.A misinterpreted rule extended the game when it should have been over and allowed the Chippewas to score a wild, winning touchdown on a Hail Mary and lateral -- yes, both! -- that covered half the field for a 30-27 upset of No. 22 Oklahoma State on Saturday.Oklahoma State (1-1) tried to kill the final four seconds of the game by throwing away the ball on fourth down, but the Cowboys were penalized for intentional grounding, which is a loss-of-down penalty. Rules state that the game cannot end on an accepted live-ball penalty, referee Tim ODey of the Mid-American Conference, CMUs league, said.He later admitted there is a situation in which the game can end on an infraction.Theres an exception to the rule that says if enforcement of the foul involves a loss of down, then that brings the game to an end, ODey told a pool reporter.ODey said after conferring with NCAA rules committee secretary Rogers Redding after the game, the crew determined the extension should not have happened.But the final result stood. Article 3b of the NCAA rulebook states: When the referee declares that the game is ended, the score is final.Despite the error, this will not change the outcome of the contest, Bill Carollo, the NCAAs coordinator of football officials, said in a statement released by the MAC.That did not satisfy Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder.We had conversations with everyone that could help us understand the situation and do something about the outcome. We were told the result is final and there is nothing we can do about it, Holder said in a statement. In my mind, it is incomprehensible that a misapplication of the rules after time has expired cant be corrected.Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a text to the AP: The game is final and errors can only be corrected during the course of the game. Very unfortunate.Corey Willis scored the winning touchdown after grabbing a lateral from Jesse Kroll at the Oklahoma State 12-yard line and fighting his way into the end zone.Oklahoma State (1-1) thought it had won when Mason Rudolph threw away the ball on fourth down as the clock expired. But it backfired after the officials conferred; they assessed an intentional grounding penalty and gave Central Michigan another play.Thats a tough one. Just so everyone knows, I was the one who called the passing play,, said OSU coach Mike Gundy. Felipe Jersey. To be honest with you, I never even thought of intentional grounding being called at that point in the game. As much time as we put into end-of-game situations, that never really crossed my mind. Unfortunately, thats a difficult way to learn a hard lesson.Cooper Rush lofted up a Hail Mary pass that hit Kroll just inside the 10. As Kroll was being taken down, he pitched it back to Willis, who cut across the field and barely managed to score while being dragged down.To be honest, I actually had a missed assignment on that. I wasnt supposed to be right there, but it all worked for the better, Willis said.Coach John Bonamego said: Its an improbable finish, but its a situation that we practiced and rehearsed. We were able to execute and pull out the win.Central Michigan fans might have been having flashbacks to the Bahamas Bowl from two seasons ago, when the Chips covered almost the length of the field on a long pass and lateral play to make it a one-point game with no time left against Western Kentucky. In that fabulous finish, Central Michigan went for 2 and the win and did not convert. This time around, the Chippewas were able to run off with the victory.SYMPATHY FROM THE DEVILSOklahoma State fans were livid, and they can now relate to Duke fans who watched their team lose a game on a multilateral kickoff return touchdown to Miami last season that the ACC later said should not have counted. Or maybe go back to 1990, when officials mistakenly gave Colorado five downs to score the game-winning touchdown against Missouri in the waning seconds.Central Michigan is unlikely to go on to win a national title the way those Buffaloes did, but it will still go down as one of the biggest wins in school history.THE TAKEAWAYCentral Michigan: Never quit on the Chippewas.Oklahoma State: The Cowboys will rightfully be upset by the bad call, but Gundy will be questioned for throwing on his final play.POLL IMPLICATIONSOklahoma State: How do AP voters deal with this? The Cowboys rightfully had the game won. They also allowed CMU to play them toe-to-toe at home when Oklahoma State was a big favorite. So maybe the Cowboys dont drop for the loss as much as for the underwhelming performance?Central Michigan: This is no way to get ranked.UP NEXTCentral Michigan: The Chippewas return home to face UNLV.Oklahoma State: The Cowboys play their third straight home game, hosting Pittsburgh.
