I'm past help, but thank you," he tells Matthew) announces that he plans to name the baby Sybil. "I want to remember her mother whenever I look at her.

In Morgan State's final game of a disappointing 2005 season, the Bears were passed and run over by an offense like a diesel truck - the license plate read "SCSU."

"At this juncture, you're not really playing for anything other than pride and respect," Morgan State coach Donald Hill-Eley said.
