Torrey Smith learned a valuable lesson in his rookie season that is serving him well. The Ravens' second-round pick out of the University of Maryland in 2011, Smith struggled badly in his first NFL training camp and then was held without a catch in the first two regular-season games. The chatter had already started that he was the latest in a long line of wide receivers drafted by the Ravens who would never fulfill their potential. Smith quieted such talk with a three-touchdown, 152-yard receiving performance in Week Three against the St. Louis Rams.

The final score of Stevenson's 31-10 loss to Middle Atlantic Conference rival Lycoming on Saturday might suggest a rout. But coach Ed Hottle said the Mustangs had a chance to flip the score in their favor. “I would say it was a missed opportunity,” he said Wednesday morning. “I don't want to take anything away from them. They're a very good football team. We would've had to play really well to get a 'W' there. But again, I think the opportunity was there.” Hottle was referring to an advantageous first quarter that practically begged Stevenson (4-1 overall and 3-1 in the league)

It isn't often that the Ravens and Steelers head into one of their divisional showdowns with a combined record that is well under .500 (4-7), but that doesn't alter the importance of Sunday's game at Heinz Field. In fact, you could make the case that this week's episode of “Survivor: AFC North” might be more important than the usual dogfight for the division lead. There certainly is a lot at stake for two teams that - so far - have had trouble getting out of their own way. “I don't think records are as important in this game from an intensity standpoint,"said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin during Wednesday's conference call with the Ravens media.

Maryland sophomore forward Jake Layman scored a team-high 25 points as the Terps closed out their foreign tour with an 88-77 win over the Grand Bahamas All-Stars this afternoon. Layman, who averaged 21.3 points during the Terps' three-game, undefeated exhibition tour of the Bahamas, went 5-for-8 from 3-point range in Friday's win at the Sir Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium in Nassau. Junior guard Nick Faust (City) was Maryland's second-leading scorer with 20 points, while sophomore point guard Seth Allen added 15 points.

In the past month, Johns Hopkins has routed Randolph-Macon (42-3 on Sept. 6) and Moravian (33-14 on Saturday). But the Blue Jays also had a 27-20 win over Centennial Conference opponent Susquehanna on Sept. 13 that was closer than expected. So which game is an accurate indicator of the Blue Jays' potential? Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff isn't sure. “I still think we're a work in progress,” he said Wednesday morning. “If we play a clean game with no turnovers and minimize big plays defensively, we can play with most people and certainly in our conference.

Maryland was so frequently overmatched last season that it didn't play many games that could fairly be called "big. " That's one reason the Terrapins (2-0) are particularly excited to play at West Virginia (2-0) on Saturday — it feels as if the outcome will have a bearing on the rest of the season. "This is a very big game for us, playing the 21st-ranked team in the country," Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said Tuesday. "The more we win, the bigger the games get. " It's the first time this season the Terps will play a nationally ranked team.

When he was growing up, A.J. Francis idolized The Rock, Charles Barkley and Reggie White, and he possesses elements of each - the girth, the candor, the ability to menace a quarterback. The chatty, playful fifth-year senior, who is expected to be an anchor on Maryland's defensive line, has a big body and a big personality that makes him a natural - if somewhat unorthodox - leader of a team with an unusual number of first-year players in important roles. He has written rap songs and poetry, loves to tweet, and is a natural performer and comedian - all of which makes him a media favorite and also a curiosity in a sport that can seem regimented.

TORONTO -- It was a night for little people. Do we have enough fingers to count the ways?A night when Jack Morris, a pitcher making $5 million this year, lost to Alan Mills, a pitcher making only $4,863,000 less.A night when Todd Frohwirth struck out Joe Carter and Dave Winfield back-to-back with two runners on base -- using just six pitches.A night when Bill Ripken drove in the biggest run with what Morris called "a perfectly placed wedge shot."Little people, little hits.A night when Mark Parent, most recently of the Rochester Red Wings, drove in the second run with a bases-loaded walk.

PITTSBURGH -- Obviously, they don't call him "Big Game Hunter" for nothing.During the regular season, not much about Dale Hunter is written because what he does is not headline material. He mucks. He digs. He gets under the skin of the opposing team's big men.When you want to find Hunter, you usually look for the players in the corner digging for the puck, or into the crowd that's involved in a pushing and shoving match.Or you look deep into the pile of bodies in front of the goal. Somewhere near the bottom you will find Hunter still trying to get position.

For Maryland, Saturday's home game against Ohio State is big, a chance to knock off one of the power teams in the Big Ten and an opportunity for the Terps to establish themselves even more as a viable threat in their new conference. Ohio State, though, is used to being the favorite -- with less prestigious teams looking to knock the Buckeyes off. “We're going to go there, and we're going to welcome them to the Big Ten,” Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman told reporters after the Buckeyes' practice Wednesday . “We're going to go on the road, and it's going to be a big game, and we're going to show them what Big Ten football is, and hopefully it'll come out in our favor.” This is Maryland's first conference home game as a member of the Big Ten. It comes against a perennial national championship contender and a team with arguably the richest history in the Big Ten. “They're saying it's one of the biggest games in Maryland history,” Heuerman said.

On Saturday, Maryland will take the field with Ohio State, one of the power teams in the Big Ten Conference and one of the favorites to win the East Division. The Terps believe they have the talent to beat teams like the Buckeyes. This is their chance to prove it. A win also would put Maryland at 2-0 in conference play with likely only one team more talented than Ohio State remaining on the Terps' schedule. This is a big opportunity for Maryland and a big game for a number of reasons.

Perry Hall handed Franklin a 14-point loss when the football teams met last season. The Indians remembered that defeat and earned some revenge Friday night. Darius Hinton ran for 197 yards and two touchdowns and caught another score as No. 11 Franklin scored 38 first-half points en route to a 58-21 victory over No. 6 Perry Hall in a Baltimore County Division II game. Quarterback Jacquez Adams also threw for three touchdowns for the Indians. The Gators won 21-7 over Franklin last season, and after that the Indians won 10 in a row and posted the Class 3A state championship.

Archbishop Curley football coach Sean Murphy jokes that he would rather coach Team Maryland in the Big 33 All-Star Classic two or three years from now. That way Murphy, named Maryland's head coach for the 58th Annual Big 33 Classic on June 13 at Hersheypark Stadium, wouldn't have so much to live up to. This summer, Maryland upset Pennsylvania, 31-24, in double overtime with River Hill coach Brian Van Deusen leading the state to only its third...

Johns Hopkins and Loyola have put their annual men's lacrosse rivalry on hold for the 2015 season. Unable to find a Saturday date suitable for both sides, the Charles Street rivals agreed to take a break next season and resume their annual series in February 2016 at Ridley Athletic Complex. With the Blue Jays moving to the Big Ten for 2015 and the Greyhounds playing in the Patriot League this past spring, Loyola coach Charley Toomey said he and Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala were intent on keeping the game on a Saturday rather than participating in a midweek contest during their conference schedules.

Tuesday's drawing in the $50 million, multistate Big Game lottery produced a $150,000 winner in Maryland who has not claimed the prize. The Giant Food store at 13600 Laurel-Bowie Road sold the winning ticket, a "Quick Pick" random selection. The winning numbers were 07, 08, 13, 35, 50 and the "Big Money Ball," 28. The $150,000 ticket-holder had five of the six numbers correct. No one had all six winning numbers, so the jackpot for tomorrow rises to $59 million. The lottery claim center is in Reisterstown Road Plaza in Baltimore.

Welcome to the Big Ten, Maryland. It's going to be a long road to acceptance. The Chicago-based blog Sherman Ave assigned each Big Ten school a corresponding Game of Thrones character last week. Many of their assignments were spot on - Northwestern as the smart, if not physically unimposing Tyrion Lannister; Michigan as the talented, slightly arrogant superpower Jamie Lannister; and Ohio State as the loathsome top dog Joffrey. But scroll to the bottom and you'll see new members Maryland and Rutgers, who join the league on July 1. They weren't exactly deemed worthy of Game of Thrones characters.

Saturday's showdown between No. 2 Stevenson and No. 3 Salisbury is a prime opportunity for both sides. For the Mustangs (13-1), a win would extend their winning streak to 13 games and reaffirm their status as the reigning Division III national champion. For the Sea Gulls (15-1), a victory would serve as a vivid reminder that the program that has captured 10 NCAA championships is getting closer to adding No. 11 to the trophy case. For both teams, a victory would likely mean the top seed in the South Region of the NCAA tournament.
