Ken Griffey Jr. has a different game to watch during the World Series.The newly inducted member of the Baseball Hall of Fame can certainly be forgiven for having his attention elsewhere Saturday night. His son is a starting receiver for the Arizona Wildcats.Juniors son Trey isnt the only Pac-12 receiver whose dad played Major League Baseball. And there are three starting quarterbacks in the Big 12 Conference who are the sons of former MLB players.While the World Series is being played, here are some MLB connections to college football:- SHANE BUECHELE, Texas, freshman quarterback.Son of STEVE BUECHELE, who played for three teams over 11 MLB seasons (1985-95).Shane is the only true freshman quarterback ever to start the first two games of a season for the Longhorns. When he made his college debut Sept. 4 against Notre Dame, his dad, the bench coach for the Texas Rangers, was excused from a game to be there.Steve, a third baseman who roomed with John Elway at Stanford, played 889 of his 1,334 MLB games with the Rangers (1985-91 and 1995). He got traded to Pittsburgh in 1991 and played in the NLCS that fall with the Pirates. He also played four years for the Cubs.- TREY GRIFFEY, Arizona, senior wide receiver.Son of KEN GRIFFEY JR., who played for three teams over 22 MLB seasons (1989-2010).Instead of highlight catches in the outfield, Trey has 17 receptions for 305 yards and a touchdown this season. His 17.9 yards per catch leads the Wildcats.Junior, inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier this year, was a 13-time All-Star center fielder who won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves (1990-99). He hit 630 home runs in his career, including a game in September 1990 when he and his father hit back-to-back homers while playing together for Seattle.- KENNY HILL, TCU, junior quarterback.Son of KEN HILL, who played for seven teams over 14 MLB seasons (1988-2001).The younger Hill succeeded Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and had a single-game school record 511 yards passing in his first start. He later transferred to TCU, where after having to sit out last season he is now second in the Big 12 with 357 total yards a game.Ken Hill was a National League All-Star in 1994 with the Montreal Expos, when the right-handed pitcher had 16 wins in the strike-shortened season the year his son was born. Hill pitched in the 1995 World Series for the Cleveland Indians, then threw seven complete games for the Rangers the next season when they won their first AL West title.- TORII HUNTER JR., Notre Dame, senior wide receiver.Son of TORII HUNTER, who played for three teams over 19 MLB seasons (1997-2015).Hunter, who has also played baseball at Notre Dame, has 25 catches for 360 yards and a touchdown in six games this season for the Fighting Irish. A team captain, he missed a game after a concussion suffered on a helmet-to-helmet hit during the season opener at Texas.The elder Hunter, who retired from baseball only a year ago, was a five-time All-Star outfielder who won nine Gold Gloves. He went to the playoffs eight times with three teams (Minnesota Twins, Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers). He was a .277 career hitter and had 353 homers.- PATRICK MAHOMES, Texas Tech, junior quarterback.Son of PAT MAHOMES, who played for six teams over 11 MLB seasons (1992-97, 1999-2003).Mahomes was an eye-popping 52-of-88 passing in his last game against No. 16 Oklahoma, matching the FBS record with 734 yards passing and breaking the total offense mark with 819. He is the national leader with 473 yards passing a game, nearly 100 more than the next-closest player. He gave up baseball last spring to concentrate solely on football.Right-hander Pat Mahomes was 42-39 with a 5.47 ERA in 308 career games (63 starts) for the Twins, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Rangers, Cubs and Pirates. He was part of the 1999 NL playoffs with the Mets.- DANTE PETTIS, Washington, junior wide receiver/punt returner.Son of GARY PETTIS, who played for four teams over 11 MLB seasons (1982-92).Dante shares Washingtons career record with four punt returns for touchdowns. He has 27 catches for 457 yards this season for the fourth-ranked and undefeated Huskies, and his eight receiving touchdowns are tied for second in the Pac 12.Gary, now the third base coach for the Houston Astros, was a five-time Gold Glove outfielder with 354 career stolen bases.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Manuel Locatelli Jersey . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. AC Milan Jerseys . The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield.

There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me.

"Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. Every year it seems a different quarterback sets the silly goal of completing 70 percent of his passes. Eli Manning took the challenge two years ago, but completed only 63.1 percent, a career high. In 2015, Minnesotas Teddy Bridgewater talked up the milestone, but ended at 65.3 percent.The reality is that a quarterback can dink and dunk his way to a high completion percentage, which is why we at Football Outsiders wanted to find a better way of quantifying accuracy and completion percentage.The core idea is passing plus-minus, which estimates how many passes a quarterback completed compared to what an average quarterback would have completed, given the location of those passes. It does not consider passes listed as thrown away, tipped at line or quarterback hit in motion. Player performance is compared to a historical baseline of how often a pass is completed based on the pass distance, the yards needed for a first down, and whether it is on the left, middle or right side of the field.Because we care only about whether or not the pass was completed with this stat, dropped passes can be accounted for favorably for the qquarterback.dddddddddddd Once we have the drop-adjusted plus-minus total, it can be divided by the number of passes to get an adjusted rate we denote as C%+.A quarterbacks C%+ is how many percentage points better than average he was at completing passes. Here is a look at the 10 most accurate quarterbacks from the 2015 regular season.1. Russell Wilson, Seattle SeahawksC%+: 7.3 percentWilson finished the season on a tear, throwing for 24 touchdowns and just one interception in his final seven games. His passing DVOA during that stretch was 60.8 percent, which over a full year would be the highest season in our database dating back to 1989 (Peyton Manning finished 2004 at 58.9 percent). Always a good vertical passer, Wilson (8.11) is the only quarterback to average more than 8.0 yards per attempt since he joined the NFL in 2012 (including playoffs). Wilsons career C%+ of 6.6 percent is the third highest in the NFL since 2006 behind only Kurt Warner (6.9 percent) and Drew Brees (6.8 percent).
