For the Chicago Cubs , the last few days have felt like Christmas in July.

The team has won five games in a row and will try to stretch it to six on Wednesday afternoon in a Fourth of July matinee.

“Everything is believable,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters when asked about his team’s recent hot streak. “We believe in everything right now. Santa Claus is absolutely true.

“When you get to that point and you get that kind of confidence, you don’t want to do anything to nick it.”

Chicago (48-35) has climbed 13 games above .500 to match its high-water mark. The Cubs have a chance to set a new high when they host the Detroit Tigers (38-49) in the finale of a two-game series at Wrigley Field.

All of the Cubs’ five wins during the streak have been in come-from-behind fashion.

“One of our concepts is to score first,” Maddon said. “One of our concepts is to win the inning. But I think this is maybe the residue of our starting pitching not being what it probably is. We’ve given up more runs early from our starters that we didn’t anticipate happening.

“But it’s a tightly knit group. They’re there to pick everybody else up. So, OK, they’ve scored a couple runs. There’s no quit. The chatter in the dugout is great, all that stuff is outstanding. I just think that the come-from-behind component right now is based on our starters not pitching to their capabilities yet.”

That said Kendall Sheffield Jersey , the Cubs will look for a solid start from left-hander Jose Quintana (6-6, 4.31 ERA) in his 17th start of the season. The 29-year-old has allowed three earned runs or fewer in nine of his past 12 starts.

In 18 career starts against the Tigers, Quintana is 5-5 with a 4.37 ERA. The Colombia native has walked 26 and struck out 82 in 111 1/3 innings.

The Tigers will counter with veteran left-hander Francisco Liriano (3-4, 3.99 ERA), who is scheduled to make his 13th start of the season. The burly southpaw carries a career record of 105-103 with a 4.14 ERA in 335 career games.

More than a few teams could be scouting the 34-year-old Liriano as the trade deadline approaches. He is coming off a quality start against the Toronto Blue Jays but has not logged a victory since April 17 against the Baltimore Orioles.

In 14 career starts against the Cubs, Liriano is 5-4 with a 3.27 ERA. He most recently faced the club in 2016, when he posted an 0-2 record with a 7.63 ERA in three starts with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto Blue Jays.

The Tigers could turn to a six-man rotation in the next couple weeks , which is fine with Liriano.

“I think that would work,” Liriano said recently to “It wouldn’t bother me at all. I don’t know about any other guys. (Blaine) Hardy has been doing a great job, so it’s hard to put him in the bullpen with the way he’s throwing the ball right now. I think that’s a great idea.”

Injured Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant (shoulder) is not expected to play Wednesday. He is hitting .280 with nine home runs and 36 RBIs in 66 games this season.

College football today is a big game, big dollar, bigger pressure affair. It's a pretty huge deal in most corners of the country with people everywhere counting down the days from spring practices until the games get real. Most every school has a devout and loyal fanbase who froth at the mouths when their teams take to the field. These fans live and die with their teams each and every week knowing that one bad day, a simple slip up, or just not having it that week can cost them a shot at glory. Unlike in the pros Qadree Ollison Jersey , one bad game, one measly little loss can effectively end your season.It's little wonder then that in the pressure cooker that is college football, sometimes the egos and personalities are inflated to epic proportions. Sometimes it's the prime-time players, the athletes who are simply biding their time before making the inevitable jump to – they hope – gridiron glory in the NFL who get a little too full of themselves. They make bad decisions, do stupid things, and act every bit the prima donna you just know they'll be at the next level. Other times though, it's the coaches Rashan Gary Jersey , the men in charge of these powerhouse programs that relish their time in the spotlight perhaps a little too much. Some of these coaches seem to love the attention, adoration, and can't seem to get enough of it.With all of the praise, adulation, celebrity, and God-like treatment, it's little wonder that they may get a little too big for their britches. After all Hakeem Butler Jersey , you can only be told you're the best thing ever so many times before you start believing it!But their behavior and their personalities sometimes get a little out of control and a lot boorish. College football is a big business, but it is after all, just a game. While this is by no means a comprehensive list, here are just 10 of the biggest jerks in college football today...
