Numbers no longer weigh on Anquan Boldin's mind. That's why the ninth-year veteran didn't make too much of his first 100-receiving yard day of the season in the Ravens' 29-14 victory over the Houston Texans at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday. "I think, for me, I'm past stats," Boldin said. "My whole career has been built around that [not caring about stats]. I'm just to the point now where I want to win a championship. Whatever that takes, I'm going to do it. " Nonetheless, Boldin's eight-catch, 132-yard performance was a welcome sight for a receiving corps that played without fellow starter Lee Evans for the third consecutive game.

From Inside Lacrosse | April 10, 2014
This time a week ago, Cornell was the lone undefeated team in Division I and was No. 2 in the nation. Consecutive 14-9 losses at home to Harvard and Syracuse have altered its national standing dramatically, but coach Matt Kerwick and his players say the team's psyche remains undamaged. "I'm not concerned," Kerwick said. "We have great leadership in that locker room. Two games don't determine a season. We're not worried about that at all. Confidence is a very important part of lacrosse, probably more so than any sport I've been around, and we have to make sure we continue to stay confident because we have all the faith in the world in this team and I don't second-guess it at all. " "Our ticket's the Ivy League," defenseman Tom Freshour said after Tuesday's loss to the Orange.

Anybody who has spent any time around teenagers develops a kind of sixth sense for when they are hearing those teens lie. The elaborate explanation. The breezy dismissal. The dramatic outrage. When teens tell you it isn't a big deal, it usually is. When they tell you it is OK with the adults in charge, it usually isn't. When they tell you everything is fine, it is time to start worrying. That special sense that I am being lied to is in full bloom again, but this time it isn't my teenagers trying to get away with something.

After every playoff loss during his 17-year career, I always watched Ravens Pro Bowl linebacker Ray Lewis run straight from the field to the locker room. You always felt bad for him because during that time you wondered how many rings Lewis would have won if the Ravens ever had a good quarterback and a legitimate, balanced offense. Lewis didn't have a great season this year, but it was cool watching him celebrate in New Orleans after the offense put up big numbers Sunday night. It didn't even out all those other years, but it made his farewell that much better because Lewis didn't have to carry the load.

This is the most deceiving part of the baseball season. Fluctuation is the name of the game, as the weak often appear strong and the potent are temporarily invisible.The big numbers are at their biggest and the small numbers at their smallest -- and without a tally sheet, you don't know which individuals, or teams, match up with which set of statistics.Are the Oakland Athletics really the best-hitting team in the American League, as the latest weekly totals tell us? Or does it have something to do with the fact that they've played the Minnesota Twins in seven of their first 12 games?

SANTIAGO, Chile -- How are things in Chile? Depends on whom you ask. Just like back home.The answers I hear traveling through this beautiful and energetic country sound like an eerie echo of the current political debate in the United States.Big people who care about big numbers, like gross national product and government reserves, say things are in very good shape, the best in South America. But little people (and now their wives and children) are running in place, just trying to keep up or keep what they have.

The box score for Maryland's opening-game loss to Kentucky contained one gaudy, improbable number - 28. "I've never seen anything like it," Wildcats coach John Calipari said of the 28 offensive rebounds - 19 in the first half - the Terps collected in losing, 72-69, at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Maryland (0-1) - which hosts Morehead State (1-0) on Monday night - shot 33 percent in the Kentucky game Friday night and were just 3-for-19 on 3-pointers. "Our shot selection was poor," coach Mark Turgeon said.

The final presidential debate drew a TV audience of 59.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media. That's down from the 67.2 million and 65.6 million for the first and second debates, respectively. But it still shows huge interest -- particularly when you consider that the debate was up against a game seven in the National League Championshop series and"Monday Night Football," each of which together drew more than 18 million viewers. That old dinosaur, the medium of television, is still drawing a few viewers, hey?

If you wanted to see genuine emotion, not the phony stuff that so often comes from sports these days, you needed to see Greivis Vasquez's face light up when they honored him here Sunday. The Maryland Terrapins did this one up right, folks. Right before their sloppy 87-80 win over North Carolina State, they hung a banner with his No. 21 from the rafters at Comcast Center, making him only the 16th player in Maryland history accorded that tribute. They put together a wonderful highlight reel of the former Terps great's career that played on the scoreboard, narrated in the stentorian voice of veteran announcer Johnny Holliday.

I've always liked Kyle Boller. Really. I'm a big fan. I kid because I love. And I knew he could produce if people would just get off his back. Or to be more exact, if he'd stay off his own. Funny how many passes you can complete when you're standing up. The guy threw for 253 yards and three touchdowns, and now it's fair to wonder if he had some sort of breakthrough, or if Green Bay is just that bad. Boller got lucky on the TD pass to Randy Hymes, who...

Baltimore's Sudanese community is shrinking week by week, as scores of people have begun making plans to return to their African homeland. Their hurry is understandable — they have fewer than four months to build a new nation. Michael Lupai, president of the Southern Sudanese Community of Washington, a refugee support group, said that at its height, the local community of Sudanese immigrants numbered about 300. In the past few months, he said, that number has shrunk to 185 and is dwindling rapidly.

Cam Newton, QB, Auburn Buzz: With the Heisman Trophy his to lose, Newton put on a clinic in the SEC championship game, racking up 407 total yards and six touchdowns in Auburn's 56-17 victory over South Carolina. The victory assures the Tigers of a trip to Glendale, Ariz., and a matchup with Oregon for the BCS title. A finalist for the Davey O'Brien, Maxwell, Manning and Walter Camp awards, Newton could continue to add more hardware to his trophy case in the coming month.
