Ravens defensive end Ryan McBean broke his left ankle Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome, a league source confirmed. It's a fracture dislocation and it will require surgery, according to the source. McBean is scheduled to visit Dr. Robert Anderson on Monday for further examination. Anderson is the noted Charlotte, N.C. orthopedist who performed Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs' surgery to repair a partially torn Achilles tendon. He's regarded as the top doctor of choice for NFL players dealing with foot and ankle injuries.

The troubling NFL lockout didn't stop the league from releasing an all-too-familiar preseason schedule for the Ravens on Tuesday, which is highlighted by a national prime-time matchup against the Washington Redskins. The Ravens open their preseason with a trip to Philadelphia on the weekend of Aug. 11-15. This marks the 12th time that the Ravens and Eagles have met in the preseason. The Ravens' next game is their first preseason one against the Kansas City Chiefs. A rematch of last year's wild-card game -- which the Ravens won, 30-7 -- is scheduled for Aug. 18-22.

MINNEAPOLIS - Basketball was not meant to be viewed through binoculars, but that's the only way some far-flung fans will be able to follow the Final Four. College basketball's climactic weekend will be held in a dome for the fifth straight year, and the NCAA has no interest in taking it back to a smaller venue where the game feels more comfortable. There is too much interest - and ticket revenue at stake - so Duke and Maryland will tip it off tonight at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, the home of the NFL's Vikings and the Twins of Major League Baseball.

ATLANTA -- Even now, with only beams, cables and an outer shell to suggest its future majesty, the Georgia Dome already casts a striking impression on the Atlanta skyline.The hope among local officials here is that the nation's newest indoor playground will leave an equally indelible mark on the sporting world."We've got a lot of great plans for this place," said Khalil A. Johnson, general manager of the facility, located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, just across from the Omni arena and CNN Center.

I tried to pick the winner of tonight's big Ravens- Atlanta Falcons game and my fat little fingers seemed to hover over the keyboard forever. I thought about Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan's 17-1 home record versus Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco being the NFL's hottest passer (11 TDs and one interception) since Week 3. I thought about how strong the Atlanta pass rush has been (16 sacks) versus how balanced the Ravens offense is. I thought about how loud it gets in the Georgia Dome — think a Saturn V rocket at lift-off — versus the Ravens' love of playing in hostile environments Finally all 10 beefy fingers landed on the keyboard with a thud and I wrote: Ravens 24, Falcons 21. And you can take that to the bank.

As the Ravens prepare to play the Dolphins at home Sunday, here's a look at how the rest of their season breaks down, with the games divided into categories according to their level of difficulty for the Ravens. Most challenging • at Atlanta Falcons (5-2) Date: Nov. 11 (Week 10) The good: Even with the offseason addition of cornerback Dunta Robinson, the Falcons still rank near the bottom in pass defense. If the Ravens secondary can hold up, Joe Flacco has the opportunity to outshine Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, who was selected 15 spots ahead of him in the 2008 NFL draft.

ATLANTA-- --It was the end of two roads last night at the Georgia Dome - the dynasty and the coulda-been dynasty. Florida was too good, too deep, too much for Ohio State. And yes, back-to-back national championships in this day and age of college basketball constitutes a dynasty. Give it up for the Gators, then, because it has been awhile, 15 years, since a repeat happened, and it will be awhile before it happens again. But give it up, too, for the best center of his time. Greg Oden, at 19, became a man last night.

They arrived at the University of Florida three years ago amid little fanfare, most of them more noted for their athletic bloodlines than their basketball abilities. It all changed in last year's NCAA tournament. Becoming national champion can do that to a team. As the Gators begin defense of their title tonight in New Orleans against Jackson State as a No. 1 seed, their profile is as high as the pressure they face. Who doesn't know Joakim Noah, now famous for his fist pumps and ponytail, if not quite as world renowned as his father, Yannick, was when he won the 1983 French Open?

ATLANTA - Two years ago, University of Maryland athletic director Deborah Yow looked at football coach Ralph Friedgen and swore she saw a winner.

For the first time in 17 years, Maryland's football team earned a postseason victory, trouncing Tennessee 30-3 to win the Peach Bowl in front of 68,330 fans at the Georgia Dome.

ATLANTA - Just a stone's throw from the Georgia Dome, a man named Bubba stands next to his motor home, wearing an orange windbreaker. He has a can of beer in his hand and the Tennessee Volunteers on his mind. "You ever been to our stadium back in Knoxville?" asks Bubba, whose real name is Bobby Grindle. "You need to go. It is awesome. Once you get in there, 107,000 people, you'll understand. Now, that's football." Grindle would know. He's part of a select group of Tennessee fans who would follow the Volunteers anywhere.
