Ravens lineman Jonathan Ogden made a name for himself in the NFL at guard last season, but now it's time for the second-year player to re-establish credibility at his old familiar spot of tackle. With the Ravens trading veteran left tackle Tony Jones to the Denver Broncos in February, Ogden has moved from left guard to left tackle, the position where he won the Outland Trophy as the nation's top offensive lineman when he was a senior at UCLA. Ogden , 6 feet 8 and 318 pounds, earned all-rookie honors last season.

WTMD-FM, Towson University's radio station, is moving to downtown Towson. The change, talked about last fall, was formalized Tuesday when university officials signed a lease for an 8,000-square-foot space at Towson City Center, general manager Stephen Yasko said. The station's new home is a result of WTMD's growth since it changed formats a decade ago, and the university's own drive to carve out a niche in the downtown corridor. Along with the station, four centers belonging to the College of Health Professions signed leases at the mixed-use complex in January.

Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson played Tipitina's last week. The streetcars are running on Canal Street and the bars in the French Quarter have gotten the green light to remain open all night. Dave Dickerson would love to say that things are returning to normal in New Orleans, but he's still learning his way around town. Tulane's rookie coach will run his first practice on campus tomorrow. It's unusual to hold an 8 p.m. workout on Christmas Eve, but nothing has been status quo for the Green Wave and its city since Hurricane Katrina hit a week before Labor Day. "We have two freshmen players and they've never attended a class on campus," said Dickerson, who spent 12 seasons at Maryland as a player and assistant coach before taking on what already figured to be a daunting rebuilding job. "Those two kids and the four guys on the coaching staff have never practiced in Fogelman Arena or had a game there.

No mortal soul ever accused Mr. Jack Sherrill of being unknowledgeable. Plus, there are indications Jackie's knowledge extends beyond his unquestioned ability to organize a winning college football program.One recollection is a dinner conversation turning toward a recent airliner crash. The cause had been listed as "wind shear.""That's a new one on me," said ole buster here."New? Certainly it's not new!" Sherrill said, just a bit scornfully. The coach was a licensed pilot who did much of his own flying on Texas A&M recruiting trips.

By all accounts, Mark Turgeon is a skilled recruiter, a demanding coach and a valued leader. Four NCAA tournament appearances in four years at Texas A&M — football country — endorse that profile of Maryland's new basketball coach. But can Turgeon do at Maryland what he did in Texas? Can he win in the Atlantic Coast Conference like he won in the Big 12? Can he make Maryland a perennial NCAA team the way the Terps were under Gary Williams? A handful of experts and people who know him say he can and will.

Howard Community College's television station has received two regional Emmy nominations for pieces that combine creative vision with cutting-edge technology. The nominated public service announcement and station identification spots were made using "green-screen" technology to incorporate computerized backgrounds, animation and graphics. The addition of that capability a couple of years ago has widely expanded the station's ability to produce slick-looking advertisements, announcements and original programs, said Margaret Kahlor, director of media arts, the TV studio and HCC-TV.

Bel Air's radio station, 91.1 WHFC-FM, operates out of four rooms in the west wing of Joppa Hall at Harford Community College. Its on-air hosts, almost all volunteers, broadcast from an 80-square-foot studio, next to two like-size rooms - one for interviews and another for production. A storage room converted into the station manager's office is a few steps away down a short hall. Licensed and owned by the college, Harford Community Radio might be a small operation by some standards, but it's not short on ambition or goals.
