When former Gilman star Cyrus Jones Jr. finished sorting through his 40-plus football scholarships following his senior season, he concluded Alabama was the right place for him. This time of year, the big game in front of him, is why. "One of the main reasons I wanted to come to Alabama was to have a chance to play at the highest level and compete for a national championship every year," said Jones, who has made an impact in his freshman season...

Irish bring some magic Jeff Otterbein Hartford Courant Notre Dame will win the BCS championship. On paper the Irish should not. They don't even play in the SEC. But there is something magical about what Brian Kelly is doing in South Bend. Yes, they've had the luck of the Irish this season, but they're good, too. They have the defense. The offense has gotten better as the season has progressed. They seem to have the right chemistry. Fans either love or hate Notre Dame, but something about college football seems better when the Irish are in the title hunt.

When Alabama Shakes take the Virgin Mobile FreeFest stage on Saturday, the quartet - all from Athens, Alabama - will likely play its biggest hit, "Hold On," within the first few songs. This is a deliberate move, and also a sort of challenge to the audience: With our most popular song out of the way early on, will you stick around? "'Hold On' is still the one," said guitarist Heath Fogg. "The iPhones come out when we play that one. We play it first, second [or] third. We get it over with.

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.

A pair of SEC rivals took the top two spots in USA Today's preseason college football coaches poll, which was released today. LSU is No. 1 with 18 first-place votes, while Alabama check in at No. 2. The Crimson Tide earned 20 first-place votes - the most of any team. It's the first time since 1991 that the first-place team did not receive the most first-place votes. The last time was in 1999 with Florida State and Tennessee. The Seminoles went on to win the national championship.

Throughout his illustrious three-sport high school career - and particularly in his senior year - Gilman's Cyrus Jones Jr. had a knack for owning big moments. For Jones, who will play football for reigning national champion Alabama, there was the two-point run in overtime to win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship against Calvert Hall, the hoop that made him Gilman's all-time leading scorer in basketball and sprinting to two more league titles in track this spring.

Finding an outside linebacker wasn't necessarily viewed as the Ravens' top priority heading into this week's draft, but when they got set to make the 35 th overall selection Friday, they couldn't resist adding another potential impact defensive player and a pass-rushing complement to Terrell Suggs. Temporarily ignoring their needs on the offensive line, the Ravens made linebacker Courtney Upshaw, a defensive standout on an Alabama team that won the national championship last season, their first selection of the 2012 draft.

Update 9:48 p.m.: With the Jets picking North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples, it creates more of an opportunity for the Ravens to land either Alabama linebackers Courtney Upshaw or Dont'a Hightower. The Ravens also like South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram, who had 10 sacks in 2011. Ingram could also play outside linebacker.    Update 9:28 p.m.: Like most teams and fans around the NFL, the Ravens couldn't predict the amount of trades in the top 10 picks, but they at least have been able to match up the teams with the players they chose.
