The Mid-American Conference has adopted four proposals developed by student-athletes to regulate time demands on those participating in college sports, including a mandatory two weeks off after the season.The MAC announced Thursday that its council of presidents voted unanimously to adopt the proposals approved by athletic directors. The proposals originated from a report drafted by the conferences student-advisory committee.In July, the Power Five conferences put forth several concepts to reduce the demands on athletes. The concepts will form a proposal for NCAA legislation that the autonomy conferences plan to vote on in January.The MAC decided not to wait. MAC schools can implement the proposals immediately, but they are mandatory for the 2017-18 school year.This will be a topic of conversation in January, MAC commissioner Jon Steinbrecher said. If we knew what we wanted to do, why not go ahead and do it? It was the right thing to do.A lot of this is going to be a work in progress in how we track it and how we manage the issues that arise. Well manage the self-reporting. Were one of two conferences with an infractions committee. Well report things on a semester-by-semester basis and look for trends.Along with the two-week break after the championship part of the season ends, athletes will be required to have a week off with no athletics obligations at the beginning of each semester.Athletics obligations will be prohibited for at least eight hours after returning to campus from away-from-home travel.Its the right thing to do, Steinbrecher said. It will take a lot of work to make sure its implemented approximately. ... As you sit there and look at it, it makes a world of sense physically and mentally. But certain times of year, you may have 5-6 teams going and 1-2 facilities. How do you move all those parts around? It takes a little forward thinking.Also, practice schedules will be required to be shared with student-athletes weekly. If changes are required, they must be known by student-athletes 24 hours prior to the scheduled practice time.They have a passion for their sport. Its not like theyre looking to take seasons off, Steinbrecher said. The flip side is they also want a full college experience. Thats the tension youre probably balancing as you work through some of these things. The participation in the sport brings phenomenal opportunities. This is a starting point and its not the end point. The next evolution gets into sport-specific requirements.ESPNs Adam Rittenberg and The Associated Press contributed to this report. David Pastrnak Jersey . Nigeria beat surprise package Ethiopia 2-0 in the second leg of their playoff for a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory. Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium. Phil Esposito Jersey . Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. http://www.cheapbruinsjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-adam-oates-jersey . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends. Bobby Orr Jersey . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. Paul Postma Jersey .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. HOUSTON -- This might be the last best chance for the man with the West Virginia drawl who speaks fluent Italian.Houston Rockets coach Mike DAntoni, who turned 65 in May and is best known for his Seven Seconds or Less teams in Phoenix, says he has reached an age where time can start running out.While seemingly everybody else is using a variation of DAntonis up-tempo offense to chase NBA titles, he feels its his turn this season.Anyone who has watched an NBA game recently knows the offensive recipe -- find a point guard to push the tempo and plop a power forward at the 3-point line rather than in the post. DAntonis system utilizes pace and space, filling the court with shooters rather than worrying about standard definitions of positions. ?Some were critical of the game-changing offense when it debuted back in 2004. Now its all the rage.It gets buckets, James Harden said.Ive stole from it, first-year Memphis coach David Fizdale said. Hes the modern-day godfather of pace. Pace and space.DAntoni once had two-time MVP Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire, Shawn Marion and Leandro Barbosa running his dizzying schemes in the desert. Now he has Harden playing the role of Nash with Ryan Anderson, Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza as the shooters.But the dream remains the same: win that elusive NBA title. DAntoni feels the Rockets team that opens the season against the Lakers on Wednesday night in Los Angeles is the most talented group he has had in years.Without a doubt, not even close, DAntoni said. Not even close.The path to a title is made even tougher because his own offensive principles are being used by several contenders.Golden State is the heavy favorite in the West after two straight trips to the NBA Finals, but San Antonio, the L.A. Clippers, Memphis and Portland all have teams expected to stand in the way of the Rockets, who made the playoffs last season as the Wests No. 8 seed. Even younger teams such as Utah and Minnesota could push for middle-class status in the crowded Western Conference race.And who knows what New Orleans might be capable of doing with one of DAntonis assistant coaches, Alvin Gentry, using portions of the offense with a healthy Anthony Davis?Houston is coming off a disappointing 41-win season in which owner Leslie Alexander made what turned out to be a short-term coaching change early on before settling on DAntoni this offseason. Seven Seconds or Less had left an impression on Alexander.We wanted to play this way for years, Alexander said.Part of this way is using big men as shooters, something teams such as the Warriors, Clippers, Pelicans and Grizzlies are doing. In the East, Knicks second-year big man Kristaps Porzingis doesnt hesitate to take outside shots.There were guys before him in the history of the game that played at a really high speed, Fizdale said. He really brought back small ball, space and pace, organized chaos. He brought that to the forefront, and a lot of teams are really picking from his system to implement into theirs.I have a lot of respect for Coach DAntoni -- just one of the class acts of this league,, willing to share, and hes had an impact in this league in a big way.dddddddddddd I hate that I got to play against him.In the preseason, Houston led the league with 118.6 points per game and a 111.1 offensive rating.Coaches do what they believe in and teach what they can teach, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. We run motion because thats all I feel comfortable teaching, and [DAntoni] is doing that and Golden State is doing what they do and Orlando is doing what they do, and everybody. We all borrow a little bit from each other -- its kind of a copycat sort of deal. Teams are big teams [or] are small teams [or] are running teams [or] are holding the ball. It goes in phases.Mike has been very consistent. He likes that pace and his teams do a great job of running it; [its] hard to handle.The roster put together in Houston this season doesnt appear to have the issues his most recent teams had after he was fired in Phoenix, where he enjoyed a four-year stretch that included two 60-plus-win seasons, two 50-plus-win seasons and two Western Conference finals appearances.Do I think he got credit for what he did? No, said Dan DAntoni, Mikes older brother and the head coach at Marshall. Thats me personally -- thats not coming from him, thats me.The post-Suns years have been tough on Mike DAntoni. In four seasons as coach of the New York Knicks, he made only one playoff appearance and couldnt get Carmelo Anthony to fully buy into the up-tempo offense. DAntoni was able, however, to create a stir with the unexpected rise of Jeremy Lin. During an 11-game stretch in February 2012, Lin stunned the league and thrilled fans by averaging 23.9 points and 9.2 assists.But DAntoni stepped down from the Knicks job in March 2012 as he was headed to a third losing season in four years.He followed that up with two years at the Lakers helm, teaming up with a still-feisty Kobe Bryant and reuniting with an older Nash. The Lakers also added Dwight Howard in what appeared to be a powerful team on paper. But Howard endured health problems and didnt mesh with Bryant, who tore his Achilles at the end of the 2012-13 season and played just six games in 2013-14. Nash missed 99 games in two seasons.DAntoni won 40 games in his first season with the Lakers before a 27-win 2013-14 season ended his tenure.Taking the reins in Houston presents another chance for the game-changing coach, this time with a healthy star, Harden, who is in his prime. And while the clock might be ticking, DAntoni also knows thats life in the NBA.Every coach is the same, DAntoni said. You can be in a big market or a little market; you put a lot of pressure on yourself and the franchise and everything. You want to do well for the fans, the players. Ive got a lot of players who want to have career years. The pressure is always there -- thats just part of coaching.Its what you deal with and it gets you out of bed in the morning, it gets you going. Its fun, the battle to compete.
