CHASKA, Minn. -- For three straight days and five exhausting matches, Rory McIlroy didnt just fight against the 12 Americans who were determined to end years of Ryder Cup futility. He also went toe-to-toe with the screaming, rowdy crowd that gave previously serene Hazeltine the feel of a blood-thirsty football stadium.Pumping his fist after every long putt and defiantly staring down heckler after heckler, McIlroy did everything he could to try to lead Europe to a record fourth straight victory in the biennial showdown. It all caught up to him on the back nine on Sunday. And when he faded in a fiery tussle with Patrick Reed, any chance Europe had of another improbable rally all but ended as well.I just ran out of steam on the back nine, McIlroy said after Europe lost 17-11 to the United States. Not physically, but mentally just a little. I was trying to summon up energy. I was trying to do everything I could. ... It just wasnt meant to be.Europe entered the day with a three-point deficit against an American team that finally appeared to have its act together after so much dysfunction and disorganization over the last decade. That made the hill to climb just as daunting as their Miracle at Medinah in 2012, when they overcame a 10-6 deficit on Sunday to stun the U.S.European captain Darren Clarke front-loaded his lineup, hoping McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Thomas Pieters and Justin Rose could put some European blue on the board early and turn up the heat on the desperate Americans.There was hope early as McIlroy was 5 under through eight holes. He and the equally emotional Reed threw decorum out the window, exchanging wild celebrations every chance they had.It reached a fever pitch on No. 8, when McIlroy holed a 60-foot putt for fourth straight birdie, let out a guttural howl and held his hand to his ear while yelling to the gallery, I cant hear you!Reed followed with a 35-footer of his own to keep the match all square, and the Texan wagged his finger at McIlroy as the two walked off the green toward the ninth hole. McIlroy managed just one birdie -- and had three bogeys -- from that point on, and Reed outlasted him for a 1-up victory that set the tone for the rest of the day.Europe won only four of the 12 matches, giving the U.S. its largest margin of victory since 1981. But McIlroy and Co. hardly felt like they got steamrolled. In a rollicking postgame press conference filled with jokes and laughter, they promised to return emboldened in 2018.After all, the Europeans didnt play poorly. They just didnt play quite as well as the United States.Sergio Garcia was 9 under on Sunday in an exceptional performance. But 46-year-old Phil Mickelson matched him shot for shot, posting 10 birdies to halve the match.Lee Westwood, one of Europes most accomplished Ryder Cup players, went 0-3 for the weekend, but was 2 up with three holes to play on Sunday. Then Ryan Moore eagled 16, birdied 17 and sunk his par putt on 18 to surge to victory.I love the Ryder Cup, Garcia said. Theres nothing like it. I loved every minute of it. Even all the bombs that Phil was making on me. But you know, it was another great week. And so many great things that I will never forget.There seemed to be little concern in the room that the Americans, with their vaunted task force that was formed after Europes rout at Gleneagles in 2014, had finally found the secret formula for Ryder Cup success.Europe took six rookies to Hazeltine. Outside of a superb performance from Pieters, who went 4-1-0 for the best debut performance in European history, the newcomers struggled.They feel like they will be better for it in France, where they will be show up in an entirely unfamiliar position as Ryder Cup losers. But unlike the vanquished Americans in Scotland, the Europeans feel no need to form a task force, lobby for more input from their players or do any soul searching.They shrugged their shoulders, had a laugh and will get ready for next one.It is disappointing, McIlroy said. I wish we could have the feeling that we had in Gleneagles two years ago. But it will make it that much better when we have that feeling again in Paris. Cheap Air Force Ones For Sale . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. Cheap Air Force 1 Ireland . The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. http://www.airforce1ireland.com/ . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. Air Force 1 Ireland Sale . The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. Air Force 1 Ireland Cheap . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. ATHENS, Ga. -- Jauan Jennings hauled in a 43-yard Hail Mary from Joshua Dobbs on the final play, giving No. 11 Tennessee a stunning 34-31 victory over No. 25 Georgia after the Bulldogs appeared to win the game on a long TD pass of their own with 10 seconds remaining Saturday.The Vols (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) rallied from a double-digit deficit for the fourth time in five games, but this was their most improbable comeback yet. The SEC East rivals packed a whole games worth of action into the closing minutes as Tennessee went ahead for the first time all afternoon by recovering a fumble by Georgia (3-2, 1-2) in the end zone with 2:56 to go.Then, after the Bulldogs threw an interception but got the ball back one more time, Jacob Eason tossed a 47-yard touchdown pass to fellow freshman Riley Ridley. With the Sanford Stadium crowd in a frenzy, Tennessee took the kickoff into position to take one shot at the end zone.Dobbs hurled a towering pass that the 6-foot-3 Jennings didnt really have that much trouble bringing down . He leaped above the scrum to make the catch, and then landed on his back for the score that sent the Tennessee bench charging on the field to celebrate.I just know to go get it, Jennings said. I just grabbed the ball and brought it in.Georgia built a 17-0 lead in the first half but was clinging to a 24-21 edge when it got the ball deep in its own territory late in the fourth quarter.Risking a pass from his own end zone, Eason tried to pull the ball down and was crushed by two Tennessee defenders, Derek Barnett and Cortez McDowell. The ball came loose and Corey Vereen fell on it for a touchdown.Turns out, these teams were just getting warmed up.Eason had another turnover, this one an interception by Malik Foreman. But Georgia used a couple of its timeouts, held defensively and got the ball back again. This time, the young quarterback came through, quickly driving the Bulldogs past midfield. After their final timeout, Eason found Ridley streaking behind two defenders down the left sideline, delivering a pass that the young receiver took in stride, seemingly giving Georgia an improbable winn.ddddddddddddNot so fast.An excessive celebration penalty forced the Bulldogs to kick off from their own 20, and Evan Berrys 20-yard return got the Vols in range to throw one up. When Jennings brought it down, Tennessee coach Butch Davis sank to his knees, overcome with emotion, while Vols running back Alvin Kamara sprawled out on his back, seemingly in disbelief.It was a crazy play, stuff you dream about, Dobbs said.THE TAKEAWAYTennessee: The Vols have shown remarkable resilience while gaining a commanding position in the SEC East. They keep getting off to sluggish starts, but keep finding ways to win. Now, they have victories over both Florida and Georgia, likely to be their two leading challengers in the division race. That not only puts Tennessee ahead in the standings, but provides a tiebreaker edge that could come in handy by the end of the season.Georgia: The Bulldogs have now lost two in a row in the SEC, a huge blow to their hopes of contending for a division championship in Kirby Smarts first season as coach. It will be interesting to see how they bounce back from such a devastating loss.POLL IMPLICATIONSTennessee could move back into the Top 10, while Georgia is sure to tumble out of the rankings for the first time this season when The Associated Press poll comes out Sunday. The Bulldogs barely hung on to the final spot after their big loss at Ole Miss.UP NEXTTennessee: The Vols are facing their third straight game against a ranked opponent, and another tough one on the road, when they travel to College Station to take on No. 9 Texas A&M (5-0). It doesnt get any easier after that, either. No. 1 Alabama visits Neyland Stadium on Oct. 15, finishing off the toughest part of Tennessees schedule.Georgia: The Bulldogs hit the road to face another SEC East rival, South Carolina.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
