If you drive downtown on the Jones Falls Expressway, you might have noticed a new billboard just south of Orleans Street featuring a blurry image of George Washington and the word “DRUNK” in big bold letters. No, it's not a leftover attack ad from the 1789 presidential campaign. It's a promotion for the second season of “Drunk History,” the off-kilter Comedy Central hit created by Lutherville native Derek Waters. Season 2 of the woozy walk through our national past starts Tuesday night at 10 and includes an episode on July 22 set in and featuring three stories from 19th-century Baltimore - one each with Edgar Allan Poe, Francis Scott Key and Abraham Lincoln.

Mike Farrell, the national recruiting director for Rivals.com, believes that Maryland has a chance to bring four-star recruit Kai Locksley to College Park in 2015. But Farrell said the negatives might outweigh the positives in terms of the way Terps coach Randy Edsall is trying to build his program and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, Kai's father, does his job. The younger Locksley recently listed Maryland among the six schools he's considering. That list likely grew by one when Kai Locksley received an offer from Alabama on a visit this week to Tuscaloosa.

Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram will miss Alabama's opener Saturday against San Jose State after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday morning. Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said the junior running back hurt his left knee in practice Monday.

Saban said Ingram will be monitored carefully on a week-to-week basis.

EVERY STATE in the union is facing difficult, if not disastrous, financial problems. But one of them, Alabama, has chosen to use the emergency as an opportunity. Other states, including Maryland, should pay close attention. Alabama Republican Gov. Bob Riley, at least as conservative as Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., has done more than raise income and property taxes. He's reformed a blatantly unfair system, relieving the poor of an unfair burden and assessing wealthy interests their fair share of the burden.

LSU and Alabama remained on top of the Bowl Championship Series standings as they eye their showdown in two weeks, while Oklahoma and Wisconsin paid heavily for their first losses of the season. The Tigers and Crimson Tide, both 8-0 and each with a week off to prepare for their Nov. 5 meeting in Tuscaloosa, Ala., continued to sit 1-2 in Sunday's standings with BCS averages of .9702 and .9627, respectively. Losses by the Sooners and Badgers, though, scrambled the standings and created opportunities for others.

Alabama has depth Jeff Barker Baltimore Sun College football seasons are marathons, not sprints. Teams begin the year in their shiny best, but by the end they can appear frayed. That's where depth comes in. As good as USC is — and its talent is gaudy on offense — the Trojans still are subject to scholarship restrictions. The toll may not be evident immediately, but it could be by the time the Trojans host Oregon on Nov. 3. Remember that USC's defensive line already has been thinned by departures and injury.

The Ravens have signed first-round pick C.J. Mosley , finalizing a four-year deal with the inside linebacker worth $8.787 million on Tuesday. The deal includes a standard fifth-year option and a $4.711 million signing bonus. With Mosley's deal done, that leaves third-round pick Terrence Brooks, a safety out of Florida State, as the team's only unsigned draft pick. Mosley -- one of the top inside linebackers in the draft and aplayer the Ravens were pleased to see still on the board at No. 17 -- is expected to challenge second-year player Arthur Brown for the starting weak-side linebacker role alongside Daryl Smith.

The Ravens knew they had bigger needs, but when their phones stopped ringing and they prepared to make a selection in Thursday night's first round of the NFL draft, they leaned on the same philosophy that has worked so well for them in the past. They took the top player remaining on their draft board. Eschewing bigger needs at offensive tackle and safety and opportunities to move back in the first round for additional picks, the Ravens used the 17 th overall selection to nab Alabama's C.J. Mosley, the top-ranked inside linebacker in the draft.

Baltimore Sun reporters, editors and columnists each give an opinion on whom the Ravens should select with the No. 17 overall pick in Thursday night's first round of the NFL draft. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter LB C.J. Mosley, Alabama: He may be long gone by the time the Ravens are on the clock, but if he's available, I'd have a hard time resisting an instinctive and fast linebacker with an impeccable work ethic and great leadership skills. The Ravens have bigger needs mind you but something about Mosley tells me he'll be an impact player on Day 1. And if anybody knows the value of an impact middle linebacker, it is the Ravens.

Middle linebacker  Rolando McClain  has said on his Twitter page that he plans on coming back and playing in the 2014 season. The  Ravens  still hold his contractual rights, but it doesn't sound like they are sweating McClain's decision. John Harbaugh said Tuesday that he hasn't spoken to the former University of Alabama standout, who retired nearly a month after he signed with the Ravens last April, and the Ravens coach is unsure whether the 24-year-old plans to play or not.   “I have not had discussions with Rolando personally.

INDIANAPOLIS - Standing behind the blocking drills during last month's Senior Bowl, Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith watched Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin closely as he manhandled pass rushers. Whether it was because Martin was the only lineman to consistently handle Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald or because he stonewalled Stanford defensive end Trent Murphy and Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, Martin forged a lasting impression. "I think Zack Martin did an outstanding job," Smith said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine.

Ken Niumatalolo's postgame news conference after his Navy football team's 42-14 win over South Alabama at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium began innocuously enough Saturday night. “First of all, very, very happy for our seniors,” the coach started. “For them to be able to finish out here their senior year and go undefeated at home, to become bowl-eligible, just super happy for those guys.” At that point, Niumatalolo stopped talking. For about 30 seconds, he wiped his eyes, sniffed his nose and cleared his throat before continuing.

The senior slotback had seven carries for a career-high 127 yards and one touchdown to propel the Midshipmen to a 42-14 rout before an announced 33,086 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Navy scored 32 unanswered points over the final three quarters as a defense missing three starters shut out South Alabama for nearly 40 minutes.
