Morgan State football coach Lee Hull has been seeing a little bit too much yellow for his liking. The Bears (2-2, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) nipped league rival Howard, 38-35, on Saturday, but not without drawing 10 penalties costing them 104 yards. It marked the third time this season that Morgan State incurred more penalties than its opponent. The team is averaging 8.5 penalties per game for an average loss of 77.5 yards. “I'm real concerned because that shows a lack of focus and a lack of discipline,” Hull said this week.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland safety Denzel Conyers is ineligible to play this year. Conyers signed with the Terps after attending Butte College, a junior college in California. But the junior apparently did not have a 2.5 GPA at Butte, which is why he is ineligible. Maryland appealed the ruling on the basis that Conyers was a full qualifier when he signed with Florida International in 2012 and took classes this summer at Maryland to get the credits he needed. However, the Terps' appeal was denied.

Congratulations to Steve Almond for speaking the culturally unspeakable by suggesting that we should question the fundamental nature of the game of football ( "Fans are part of the football problem," Sept. 24). In high school in the '60s, I played and enjoyed the game at an all-boys school where the varsity players were explicitly touted as "men of character" because they showed how "tough" they were. I kept my resentment of that to myself at the time but since I have come to see that my enjoyment and subsequent chagrin stemmed from the realization that football really brought out the worst in me - the adrenaline rush of permissible aggressive violence in front of a crowd.

Perry Hall handed Franklin a 14-point loss when the football teams met last season. The Indians remembered that defeat and earned some revenge Friday night. Darius Hinton ran for 197 yards and two touchdowns and caught another score as No. 11 Franklin scored 38 first-half points en route to a 58-21 victory over No. 6 Perry Hall in a Baltimore County Division II game. Quarterback Jacquez Adams also threw for three touchdowns for the Indians. The Gators won 21-7 over Franklin last season, and after that the Indians won 10 in a row and posted the Class 3A state championship.

Anthony Pino threw two touchdown passes in the final five minutes of the game to force overtime and visiting St. Paul's football tied Landon, 35-35, in a Friday game called because of darkness. The Bears (3-1-1) jumped out to a 13-0 lead and the Crusaders (2-1-1) played catch-up most of the game. Pino spearheaded the comeback with a 1-yard touchdown run followed by touchdown passes of 21 and 33-yards to Tyler Rockhill all in the fourth quarter. Pino went 28-for-44 for 332 yards.

When Towson welcomes Maine to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday night for the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both sides, the matchup will pit two of the three teams in last year's race for the conference title. But both programs are shades of what they were in 2013. The Tigers (2-2), who advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game, absorbed a stunning 31-27 loss to Central Connecticut State in their season opener and recently won back-to-back games ito climb back to .500.

While football remains far and away our country's most popular sport, in the past few years it has also become our most fraught, thanks to a steady drumbeat of stories underscoring its moral and physical hazards. The headlines dominating the news for the past few weeks have outlined cases of domestic violence by players against their girlfriends (the Ravens' Ray Rice among them) and children, and the acknowledgment by the NFL that one in three players is likely to suffer brain trauma.

When Morgan State tangles with Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State on Saturday, the Bears will see a familiar face - on the opponent's sideline. Donald Hill-Eley was Morgan State's head coach for 12 years, compiling a 59-76 record. His contract was not renewed at the end of the 2013 season, and Hill-Eley was replaced by Lee Hull, the former wide receivers coach at Maryland. Hill-Eley did not have to wait long for employment as Spartans head coach Pete Adrian hired Hill-Eley in March as the team's offensive coordinator.

A raucous tailgate last weekend in which students were dancing on the roofs of cars and were "hostile" and "uncooperative" prompted Towson University officials to consider banning student tailgating at football games the rest of the season. Though officials ultimately decided Wednesday to reject such a ban, they will discuss with student leaders over the next several days potential changes to the college's tailgating policy and its enforcement prior to football games at Johnny Unitas Stadium.
