Late Ravens owner Art Modell might face an easier path to the Pro Football Hall of Fame if the museum follows through on tentative discussions of putting "contributors" in a different voting pool than players. Modell, who brought pro football back to Baltimore, made a list of 15 finalists for the 2013 class, the first time he had gotten that far in the voting since 2001. Modell's death last September at age 87 seemed to spur a reconsideration of his candidacy, which has always been divisive because he moved his franchise from Cleveland.

COLLEGE PARK -  Of all the questions Brionna Jones has answered this season, of all the bizarre and banal inquiries - Does she speak? Can she jump? Is she finally ready? - there is one interview her father, Michael, likes best. It was early March, and the freshman was back home at Aberdeen High. A girls basketball playoff game was over, and the host Eagles had lost. A local reporter and cameraman approached Jones. They wanted an interview with the Maryland women's basketball team's starting forward.

What can I do to help the environment? As a master's student in conservation biology and environmental policy, I get this question often from my (mostly) left-leaning, but financially focused, friends. They generally understand that the environment is important, but with long work hours and an overflow "green" products and tips in the media, there is confusion about what is effective or even useful. There is a simple way to help; one that does not require wearing hemp or even scrapping your car (although that would be nice)

The six-goal explosion by redshirt freshman midfielder Ben McCarty that powered Towson's 11-8 upset of No. 15 Drexel in Wednesday's Colonial Athletic Association tournament semifinal must have shocked the Dragons, who probably did not expect McCarty to match his season total in goals in one contest. Even McCarty's coach, Shawn Nadelen, said he did not envision that performance. “I can't say I anticipated that,” Nadelen said with a chuckle Thursday morning. “I'm excited for him to do that.

Dinosaurs in Arbutus? So says a history book being published about the southwest Baltimore County community, referring to discoveries of fossilized dinosaur bones in Arbutus in the 1990s that were estimated to be more than 100 million years old. The book, "Arbutus: A Historical Scrapbook," was started four years ago as a brochure to help real estate agents sell houses in the community, said Donna Cameron, who organized the project. Each bit of information gathered, however, made the 30 contributors more curious.

As a rookie last year, A.J. Green paced the Cincinnati Bengals in receptions (65), yards (1,057) and touchdowns (seven). The offense also got sizable contributions from wide receivers Jerome Simpson (50 catches for 725 yards and four touchdowns) and Andre Caldwell (37-317-three). But in the offseason, Cincinnati declined to retain Simpson and Caldwell. That leaves a crowd that includes Andrew Hawkins, Brandon Tate, Armon Binns and a pair of rookies to try to emerge as the team's No. 2 wideout.
