Football coaches are fond of saying that it takes all three phases of a team - offense, defense and special teams - to be successful. The offense and defense did their part in No. 7 seed Towson's convincing 48-28 victory over visiting Fordham on Saturday in a NCAA Division I Football Championship second-round game, but the same could not be said of the special teams. That unit committed back-to-back-to-back gaffes in the second quarter, and two were costly: The Rams (12-2) turned them into touchdowns to roar back from a 21-7 deficit.

Once again, Loyola College fought gamely against a superior opponent, this time coming back from 22 points down in the second half to make it close.... TC But, once again, the result was the same, as Loyola lost to Fordham, 73-70, last night in a non-conference game before 1,073 at Reitz Arena.With three seconds left, Loyola -- which had its best three-point shooting night of the season, 8-for-20 -- could have tied it on a three-point attempt from 24 feet by Mike Malone.The shot bounded off the rim and a scramble for the ball ensued as the final seconds ticked off.It was the eighth straight loss for Loyola, which is 2-21.

Like a lot of teams that have faced No. 7 seed Towson this year, Fordham figured that the best place to hold down the high-scoring Tigers offense would be at the line of scrimmage. That was probably the right approach, but it didn't matter. While the Rams focused on the run, Towson quarterback Peter Athens picked the secondary apart with a terrific performance in a 48-28 win, completing 13 of 15 passes for 301 yards and a career-high three touchdowns as the Tigers scored touchdowns on seven of their first eight possessions.

For the first time since David Robinson towered above the Colonial Athletic Association in 1987, Navy's basketball team is positioned to win a regular-season conference title.All the Midshipmen have to do is their favorite thing: Beat Army.They ensured that situation yesterday by blowing away Fordham in the second half at Alumni Hall en route to a 73-42 victory that prevented the Rams from clinching the Patriot League crown.If Navy (13-12, 8-5) wins at Army tomorrow night in the makeup of a game snowed out Jan. 8, it would secure the top seed for the conference tournament, which begins Friday at Annapolis.

Marah Strickland didn't have any idea she was sick. She played two years at St. John's Catholic Prep in Frederick, two years at Towson Catholic, two seasons at Maryland and one season at South Carolina, and it's possible she was symptomatic the entire time. She just didn't know. A little more than two years ago, she finally found out. Doctors diagnosed Strickland with hypothyroidism before the 2011-12 season, and they told her it was something she might have had for a long time.

As the backup to junior Terrance West, he of highlight reel runs, Towson freshman running back Darius Victor has the unenviable task of getting his blood flowing in pre-game warmups before dialing it back down and waiting on the sideline for his turn. But Victor said he does not mind entering a game cold. "Coach [Reno] Ferri [who coaches the running backs] always has me ready to go on the sideline,” Victor said. “Every session, he's like, 'You warmed up? You warmed up?' So that's not a problem.

The fact that Towson running back Terrance West leads the Football Championship Subdivision in rushing yards and touchdowns is no accident. One of three finalists for the Walter Payton Award, given to the top player in the FCS, the junior is blessed with a unique blend of power, vision and speed. He is also blessed with a massive offensive line that opens holes that concrete mixers could plow through. "Those guys are awesome," West (Northwestern) said of the front five. "They got better each and every game and each and every year that I've been here.

Towson has faced some of the top offenses in the Football Championship Subdivision and slowed high-powered opponents like Delaware, New Hampshire and Richmond en route to victories. But Saturday's second-round game of the NCAA tournament at Johnny Unitas Stadium may bring a different challenge.

A day after achieving the program's 10-win season since 1983, the Towson football team found another reward with the No. 7 seed and a first-round bye in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoffs Sunday morning. The Tigers (10-2) will not play at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson until Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. They will await the winner of Saturday's first-round game between Sacred Heart (10-2) and Fordham (11-1). Coach Rob Ambrose said he felt confident that if Towson could defeat Colonial Athletic Association rival James Madison on Saturday -- as the team did with a 28-17 victory -- the NCAA selection committee would reward the Tigers.

In an examination of how strong teachers unions are across the nation, Maryland ranked 23rd, which is considered "average" when stacked against 50 states and Washington, D.C.,  but the state's bargaining units apparently have a strong "perceived influence. " In a report recently released by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, a conservative education policy think-tank, researchers conducted a state-by-state analysis of teacher union activity across the country. In state-specific profiles, the authors of the report looked at the following indicators: resources and membership, political involvement, scope of bargaining, and state policies, and perceived influence.
