It was an unusual weekend for Randy Edsall. The Maryland football coach and his wife, Eileen, were at Syracuse, the school where the couple met. She was being honored for her achievements as a basketball and volleyball player. The couple mingled with other honorees, including former Orange and NFL star receiver Art Monk. Edsall was a backup quarterback and played with Monk. But here's the thing: With Maryland playing Syracuse this Saturday, Edsall wasn't permitted under NCAA rules to watch warmups for Syracuse's game against Wake Forest.

Former Ravens offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden is considered a strong candidate to be part of the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. But before that, Ogden learned that he'll be enshrined into another Hall of Fame. The former UCLA star was one of 14 players to be selected for the College Hall of Fame. He'll be inducted in September. Ogden was a four-year starter at left tackle for the Bruins. In his final season at UCLA, Ogden was awarded the Outland Trophy, given to college football's top lineman, and named a unanimous first-team All-American.  He was then drafted by the Ravens with the fourth overall pick in the 1996 draft.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Until last night, Art Monk's Super Bowl contributions for the Washington Redskins were meager.In two previous Super Bowl appearances, the leading active receiver in the NFL had a modest two catches.Last night, though, Monk found a Super Bowl he could savor."To me, this is the third one and it's probably the best one for me because not only did we win, but I was able to play in it and have a pretty active role in it."The Redskins had participated in three Super Bowls while Monk was a member of the team.
