Greg Bulger's connection to wrestling this winter was supposed to be minimal at best. All Bulger, who teaches at Howard High and coaches the boys lacrosse team there, was going to do originally was break out the mats and supervise the team's weightlifting until the new coach, Sean Alkire, could get to the high school from his teaching post at Bryant Woods Elementary. But before he knew it, Bulger's tie to wrestling became more than tangential. Through his son, Tyler, a sophomore on the squad, Bulger, who stayed on as Howard's assistant coach, has gotten back in touch with the sport he gave up on as a youth.

Soon after he was eliminated from "Big Break: Mexico," Chad Schulze found himself with another chance to claim the top spot on the Golf Channel's reality television show and win an exemption for a PGA Tour event. Schulze, 34, of Cockeysville, was offered the chance to participate in the 20th season of "Big Break" right after the show in Mexico concluded. This time, it would be in Puerto Rico. "It was the perfect scenario. I had nothing going on," Schulze said. Schulze's familiarity with "Big Break" allowed him to make a smooth transition between tournaments and adjust how he would approach this season.

University of Massachusetts President William M. Bulger refused yesterday to answer any questions from a congressional committee investigating the FBI's relationship with his fugitive brother, James "Whitey" Bulger, citing his constitutional right not to offer testimony that might be used to seek criminal charges against him. Ending a week of speculation whether he would honor a subpoena from the House Committee on Government Reform, Bulger, 68, sat...

I want to know how well John Harbaugh slept Wednesday night after hearing that Marc Bulger retired. I want to know how well Ozzie Newsome slept, too, knowing the Ravens' backup quarterback right now is Tyrod Taylor, the rookie out of Virginia Tech. This is no knock at Taylor, who seems like a nice kid and may very well end up being a legitimate NFL quarterback. But if you're a team with a real shot at the Super Bowl, do you really want a guy who was your sixth-round draft choice taking snaps if your starting quarterback goes down?

Who knew Marc Bulger was a hero-in-waiting? Or that Chad Pennington was ready to ace his first test in the NFL? Or that Tommy Maddox was able at last to cash in on his misspent potential? Backups all until October, those three quarterbacks offer the latest primer in how fickle NFL fate can be. Bulger, an obscure sixth-round draft pick in 2000, served up a controversy in St. Louis by leading the Rams back from oblivion. Pennington and Maddox, a pair of former first-round picks, sparked revivals for the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers with unexpected proficiency.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh gave his farewell speech to his players on Monday morning, closing out a very disappointing 2010 season. A season of high expectations and possible Super Bowl promise went unfilled. The Ravens could have been preparing for the AFC championship game here this weekend. Instead, they are forced to again look toward the future. Harbaugh is expected to meet with owner Steve Bisciotti within the next two days, and possibly discuss the future of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Maryland's football rebuilding project received a massive setback last night in front of a hostile West Virginia crowd that watched Amos Zereoue recharge his Heisman Trophy batteries and send the No. 19 Mountaineers on their way to a 42-20 victory.Zereoue bounced back from a less-than-thrilling performance two weeks ago in a season-opening loss to No. 1 Ohio State with some scintillating runs and softened the Maryland defense for a spectacular passing performance by junior quarterback Marc Bulger.

West Virginia quarterback Marc Bulger walked confidently up to the offensive line and prepared to take his first snap of the game. Just one problem: He lined up under the right guard.But the last laugh came at Maryland's expense as Bulger played mistake-free for the remainder of the game, completing 18 of 28 passes for 193 yards.Bulger continually confused the Maryland defense with deceptive play-action and showed his athleticism with his roll-out passing. He excelled on third-down conversions with six of nine passing for 70 yards.

"Black Mass: The Irish Mob, the FBI and a Devil's Deal," by Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill. Public Affairs. 369 pages. $26. Long ago, as I began my career with the U.S. Justice Department's Organized Crime and Racketeering Section, a veteran FBI agent explained to me the First Commandment in the war against the mob. "A confidential informant is like fire. Properly controlled, both can be useful. Uncontrolled, they will cause disaster." As I read "Black Mass," my mentor's wise advice came back to me with ringing clarity.

When the NFL lockout ends, one of the Ravens' higher offseason priorities will be retaining backup quarterback Marc Bulger, who last season only got off the bench to stretch his now 34-year-old legs and get cups of Gatorade. The Ravens want a veteran behind Joe Flacco on the depth chart, and keeping Bulger is ideal. But does Bulger want to be a backup quarterback, or is he itching to be a starter again? That’s one of the many things that has been speculated upon this offseason as we wait for actual moves to converse about.

It's no secret that Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has a high opinion of himself. To his credit, he does consistently produce the best ratings in cable news.  But last night, O'Reilly stepped up claims of his own importance to new levels: He took credit for the capture of the FBI's most wanted American, former Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger.  "This is amazing that 'The Factor' could lead to the capture of a serial killer, Whitey Bulger," O'Reilly...

Ravens quarterback Marc Bulger will become a free agent whenever players are allowed to become free agents again. The former Pro Bowler should attract interest from teams who need a steady stop-gap starter under center until a young quarterback is ready to toss aside the clipboard and take the reins. Sports Illustrated's Don Banks recently talked to Bulger's agent, Tom Condon, about the 33-year-old's future, and Condon indicated that Bulger is still weighing his options for 2011 . "It's thought he could be a starting option this season for teams such as Arizona and possibly Tennessee," Banks wrote.

The checklist of teams Marc Bulger expected to hear from last spring as a new free agent included all the usual suspects, but it did not include the Ravens. No need, no vacancy in Baltimore, Bulger assumed. But when the Ravens called the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback with the St. Louis Rams in May, he was -- in order -- surprised, intrigued, then sold. "They called out of the blue," said Bulger, whose nine-year run in St. Louis ended in May when he was released. "I was just going through the Rolodex in my head of teams who would be calling and who wouldn't.

BOSTON - For 18 years, Denise Castucci waited tables at the Daily Catch restaurant on the south side of town and often served an affable, if swaggering, FBI agent named John Connolly. They became friends and spoke often. But Connolly never let on that he knew what had really happened to Castucci's father, Richard, who was shot and killed, rolled up in a sleeping bag and stuffed in the trunk of his Cadillac in 1976. In fact, authorities allege, the agent played a significant role in the death.

WASHINGTON - For more than 40 years, William Bulger changed the subject when his brother's name was raised. That silence was broken yesterday when Bulger, president of the University of Massachusetts, testified before angry members of Congress about James "Whitey" Bulger, a Boston crime lord who disappeared in 1995 just as he was about to be indicted on murder, racketeering and extortion charges. William Bulger, the former president of the Massachusetts Senate and one of the most powerful political figures in the Northeast, denied knowing his brother's whereabouts, or having information that could help authorities find him. After invoking the Fifth Amendment and refusing to answer questions at a hearing in December, Bulger agreed to testify yesterday only under a grant of immunity.

— Maybe in two weeks, we'll finally get to see the real Ravens offense. Hopefully, it wasn't on display Saturday night against the Washington Redskins, because the Ravens were out of sync and erratic. They were unpredictable, but not in a good way. When they should have been going downfield more on third-down situations, they ran short, clearing-out patterns. Quarterback Joe Flacco had problems delivering the ball early and didn't appear to have timing with his receivers because he was getting pressured a lot. There has been a lot of hype about this offense with the additions of receivers Anquan Boldin and Donte' Stallworth during the offseason, but there wasn't much explosion Saturday night.

Backup quarterback Marc Bulger refuted an ESPN broadcast crew's characterization of his emotional and mental state before the Ravens' 17-12 victory over the Carolina Panthers in the preseason opener for both teams on Thursday night. According to Pro Football Talk, play-by-play guy Mike Tirico of the ESPN Monday Night Football broadcast team called Bulger a "defeated guy" after enduring a 5-30 record as a starter with the St. Louis Rams. Color analyst and former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski described a meeting with Bulger.
