He also hadn't commented on the hiring of Gruden as his eighth head coach.

Ricky Dobbs paused for a moment. The former Navy quarterback was trying to explain what it meant to play against rival Army during his time at the Annapolis school. But he needed a few seconds to organize his thoughts. “Its just special,” Dobbs finally said in a telephone call Wednesday. “It's hard to put into words, but we have so much respect for our military academy brothers. But we want to beat them bad, too. There's a ton of pride on the field when Navy plays Army.” After Dobbs graduated in 2011, he never expected to compete in the historic rivalry again.

About 10 quarterbacks ago, the Ravens handed the job to Stoney Case. He was tall and good-looking, with a slew of college records -- a poster boy for the young franchise. That was in 1999. Case won his first start, against Cleveland - a game that gave Brian Billick his first victory as Ravens head coach. The next week, the Ravens won again as Case threw a 54-yard touchdown pass to defeat Atlanta in overtime. But two defeats followed, including a humbling loss to Kansas City on national TV in which Case threw for a couple of touchdowns - to the other team.

Some day, the Lundy cousins will put football aside. Towson running back Mikal Lundy is said to have what it takes to be a preacher. Najee Lundy, a defensive back at Kent State, might become a businessman. Virginia tailback Wali Lundy is known for his rap-inspired rhymes. "Maybe something will come out of that, too," said their grandmother, Etta Davis, of Wali's scribblings. Former Connecticut linebacker Jamal Lundy has started to make the transition, counseling youths in the family's home state of New Jersey.
