Defensive coordinator Dean Pees said Friday that the outside concerns about the Ravens' cornerback depth aren't unfounded. The team feels the same way. “I don't think there's been more made of it,” Pees said. “I think there is [real concern]. There's some depth, there's competition, but we've got to come out of this preseason [and] somebody has got to rise up.” Pees said he has no doubts about fourth-year cornerback Jimmy Smith, but that's the only given as the team enters the second week of camp.

The Orioles came into the American League Division Series knowing they couldn't match the Detroit Tigers ace for ace. No single Oriole could comfortably compare resumes with Detroit's Game 1 starter, Max Scherzer, the 2013 AL Cy Young Award winner. But as they have all season, the Orioles found a less traditional way to outduel flashier talent. Two first-time postseason performers, starter Chris Tillman and reliever Andrew Miller, combined to produce a better line than Scherzer before the Orioles blew the game open against the Tigers bullpen and won, 12-3.

Despite the absence of 12-time Pro Bowler Ray Lewis, the Ravens defense has been instrumental in helping the team win all four games that the inside linebacker has missed due to a turf toe injury on his right foot. That's not startling to the players tasked with maintaining the high level of play that unit has come to expect from every member. “It's hats off to the system, and it's hats off to guys who work hard and prepare the way they prepare,” free safety Ed Reed said.

Severna Park has dominated Class 4A boys cross country the last few years. The Falcons won the last two state championships by wide margins and easily beat most opponents during the season. That didn't happen during the Bull Run Invitational's Elite Division race Saturday at Hereford. No. 2 Dulaney has run well early this fall, and the Lions pushed No. 1 Severna Park, before the Falcons pulled out a seven-point victory. This race was likely a preview of what will be seen at the Class 4A state title meet on Nov. 8, also at Hereford, and both teams knew it. Eric Walz of Dulaney was the individual champion, taking first in 16 minutes, 5.5 seconds as the Lions put two runners in the top 10. But Severna Park used the depth that's made it so hard to beat over the last three seasons.

Do you remember this time of year last season? Maryland was playing teams such as Radford, Cornell, Florida Gulf Coast and Florida International - and squeaking by all of them. The Terps won each of those games, but only by single digits. I mentioned in my game story last night that this season's Terps seem to be better insulated from those sorts of efforts. Even when Maryland shoots poorly - and that will happen on a team with so many prominent freshmen and sophomores - the Terps can fall back on depth and size.

There is plenty to like about "small ball. " You try to use your players' quickness and moves to break down opponents. It's all built around spacing to allow your guys to do their things. But here's the thing about small ball. It can wear you down. That's why it hurt Maryland when Hawk Palsson decided to leave school to play professionally overseas. The Terps needed all the experience  they could muster, and Palsson -- who can scrap inside and shoot the 3 -- figured to be part of the rotation.

John Kaestner's two-goal outburst in No. 2 Johns Hopkins' 10-8 victory over Princeton was surprising in that the junior attackman had never scored a goal prior to Friday night. But as far as Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala is concerned, Kaestner - who made his first career start in place of freshman Wells Stanwick - was simply doing what he had been coached to do. “We've always tried to have a next-man-up mentality and tried to encourage everybody to work as hard as they can to be prepared for when their opportunity comes,” Pietramala said Monday morning.

Regardless of rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith's status for Sunday's contest at the Tennessee Titans, cornerback Chris Carr said he will treat and rehabilitate his injured left hamstring accordingly and without pressure to return quickly. “It doesn't put any extra pressure on me,” he said after the Ravens' 35-7 thrashing of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. “Like I said, we've got three or four or five guys that can go in there and start. The pressure's coming from myself. I want to go in there and contribute and play hard.

Despite boasting a defense headlined by junior close defensemen Tucker Durkin and Chris Lightner, sophomore long-stick midfielder Jack Reilly and junior goalkeeper Pierce Bassett, No. 9 Johns Hopkins isn't shy about tweaking that unit. The Blue Jays (9-2) have started freshman defenseman Robert Enright in each of their last two contests. Senior Gavin Crisafulli, who had started the previous nine contests, has come off the bench to rotate with Enright and play on the team's man-down unit.

CLEMSON, S.C. -- When the current basketball season began at the University of Maryland, Gary Williams was excited about his team's new-found flexibility and its new-found depth.The days of using five or six players, as Williams had to do for most of the past two seasons, seemed to be over. The Terrapins coach was going to be able to go three, four, maybe even five players into his bench."We can do some things that we haven't been able to do in the past," Williams said in preseason practice.

One of the top-rated members of Maryland's past recruiting class could see some playing time when the Terps play Syracuse on Saturday. Freshman wide receiver Juwann Winfree had some standout moments during preseason practice and has progressed to the point that he was listed on the two-deep when Maryland released its updated depth chart Monday. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Winfree, who was ranked as a four-star prospect, was named the Terps' offensive scout team player of the week last week.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday explained the decision to slot second-year safety Matt Elam in at the nickel cornerback slot in Thursday's 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, which he said allows the team to take advantage of its safety depth and added a run nickel package to its future plans. “We're able to do it because Matt Elam can do it,” Harbaugh said Monday. “He's done a great job of learning how to play in the slot, and that's not an easy thing to do, especially for a safety.

The top-ranked Severna Park boys were dominant in the 2013 cross country season, capped by a spectacular effort in the Class 4A state championship race at McDaniel College. In that race, the Falcons finished with 38 points, crushing second-place Dulaney (114) and everyone else. Ryan Forsyth won the race as Severna Park placed five runners in the top 14. Forsyth, a star fresh off Anne Arundel and East Regional titles, could have skipped the race and the stacked Falcons still would have won. The best teams often feature dominant runners, but not always.

Towson released its first depth chart of the preseason Friday, and there were a couple notable surprises. The first entails the free safety position. Junior Christian Carpenter, an Aberdeen native and graduate who was a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection last season, is second on the depth chart. Carpenter, who tied then-sophomore strong safety Donnell Lewis for the team lead in interceptions with four and ranked fourth in tackles with 98, has been leapfrogged by redshirt sophomore Jordan Mynatt.

"Watch your rods," I called. Almost instantly the two side lines went off."Fish on!" cried someone, and by the time fishermen got to the rods and started bringing the fish in, two rods in the stern rod-holders arched as chubby 2-pound bluefish tried to separate me from my lures.I eased my Catherine M into the deeper water off Love Point as the fishermen fought the fish to the fish box. We reset the lines and I headed the boat back toward the fish.One of the party came into the cabin and asked how I knew the fish were going to bite.
