BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - When sophomore quarterback Keenan Reynolds had to leave Navy's game Saturday with concussion-like symptoms in the second quarter, the Midshipmen never recovered. Western Kentucky knocked Navy from of the ranks of the unbeaten, defeating the Midshipmen, 19-7, at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium. Reynolds had 23 yards rushing and 20 yards passing before he left the game after a hit by Hilltoppers linebacker Andrew Jackson. Navy (2-1) struggled on offense without him and didn't score after his 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

It's a good thing Bobby Petrino wasn't the captain of the Starship Enterprise. Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy would have been trampled as Petrino made his way to an escape pod the first time the Klingons attacked. Granted, the 3-10 Atlanta Falcons were fresh out of photon torpedoes and the deflector shields were just about gone, but isn't this rush for the door just a little embarrassing? Especially coming, as it did, after a Monday night whuppin' at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. And spare me the defense that he's taking a cut in pay in leaving the pros for the college job at Arkansas.

The Next Level is a weekly Recruiting Report feature that focuses on natives of Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Harford County and Howard County who appear on NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision rosters. Chris Eckard, a senior at the University of Maryland and Baltimore Sun sports department intern, is your author. At 5-10 and 255 pounds, Arkansas junior fullback Kiero Small (Cardinal Gibbons) has one purpose for the No. 3 Razorbacks: to bulldoze.

Did you know that every year at this time, in the San Francisco-area media, Barry Bonds is seen and heard pleading for organ and bone-marrow donors to help African-American children who are difficult transplant matches? Bet all the people letting bygones be bygones with Brian Roberts because of his charity work didn't know that. Here's some motivation for the Ravens: If they win their last two, starting today in Seattle, they'll become bowl-eligible. In a just world, Bobby Petrino would have to sit out from coaching for a year, same as a player who transferred before his commitment was up. Are you watching the bowl games?

That the NFL is a league of attrition might be the most certain thing that can be said about it. As an illustration, here's a list of some probable starting quarterbacks this weekend, all of whom inherited their jobs entirely or in part because of injuries. In some cases, we're three deep on the depth chart. In Carolina, Matt Moore, an undrafted rookie, could be the Panthers' fourth starting quarterback this season because Vinny Testaverde (himself hauled out of semi-retirement) has an Achilles' problem and Carolina has thrown up its hands with David Carr.

One of the repercussions of the New York Giants' win in the NFC championship game yesterday might be that it could delay the Ravens' effort to assemble their coaching staff. How so? Well, among the candidates that the Atlanta Falcons still want to interview for head coach is Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. But because this would be Spagnuolo's first interview with the Falcons, Atlanta can't speak to him until after the Super Bowl (teams can bring in coaches for second interviews during the current week)

Capper to poor decision Mike Bianchi Orlando Sentinel Isn't the Arkansas radio reporter who got fired for wearing a University of Florida cap into Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino's news conference actually better off? Now when somebody asks her where she works, she doesn't have to turn red and answer sheepishly, "Hog Sports Radio. " But I digress. How far should partisan broadcasters go to support their team? Well, if you are directly paid by the team (like college and NFL play-by-play broadcasters)
