Last year, it was a game approached by Navy and Tulane with great anticipation, pitting at the time two of four winless teams left in Division I-A football. But instead of Navy leaving New Orleans with its first win of the season, the team came out completely flat and fell to 0-9 following a 34-7 loss."It was a great opportunity to play in a great stadium [the Superdome] in a great town," recalled Navy defensive lineman David Shaw. "But instead it was probably one of the worst games of last year.

Visiting Tulane scored the last four points of the game and a desperation three 3-point shot at the buzzer by Jordan Brickman was off the mark as the Green Wave beat Navy, 57-55, on Tuesday. The loss dropped Navy to 2-3 overall, while Tulane, which had won its previous three games by an average of 25 points, improved to 4-0 overall. Navy led 55-53 with 4:24 to play on a jumper by Jordan Sugars in the lane, but the Mids failed to score the rest of the way, going 0-for-5 from the field with two turnovers.

Mobile, Ala.-- --The football player is older than he looks and younger than he feels. He bent down near the sideline and touched the turf at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. He pressed two fingers onto the spongy, plastic grass. So this is what home feels like? For the weekend, it was to be Tulane's home field, 150 miles from the school's water-stained campus. Every Saturday, the players step onto a different field. Last week it was Ladd-Peebles, where the Green Wave faced Marshall. Tomorrow, it'll be Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, where Tulane will play Navy.

Step inside the "breathe books" store in Hampden and owner Susan Weis will show you her Himalayan salt scrub, aromatic massage oils and tomes on meditation. Or you could sprawl out on the silky red cushions and take a class on how to communicate with angels and spirits. That's what she's selling. But more than anything, Weis is proud of what she's buying: "green" electricity. She and six other women business owners on 36th Street in the North Baltimore neighborhood recently signed a contract to pay about 10 percent more for their electricity, with the extra cash going to subsidize the wind power industry.

NEW ORLEANS -- Shawn Jones has seen how the other side lives. He spent his redshirt freshman season at the University of Miami. He practiced with the team that won a national championship. Then he came back home. To Tulane.He found perspective.He found the classroom.He found out how to lose, more than he ever imagined."It was all a big adjustment," Jones said recently. "A really big adjustment."Jones, now a fifth-year senior and one of Tulane's defensive captains, hopes that he will find something else this year.

NEW ORLEANS -- They're 0-8 and eager to reduce the number of winless Division I-A teams from four to three, but the Midshipmen of Navy face a team on a similar mission when they take on Tulane tonight at 7 at the Louisiana Superdome.Tulane enters the game 0-9 and, along with Navy, Oregon State (0-8) and Oklahoma State (0-7-1), is one of four I-A teams that have failed to win a game in 1991. By the time the Midshipmen hit Bourbon Street in the French Quarter tonight, they're hoping to have ended a nine-game losing streak dating back to the loss to Army in the 1990 season finale.

NEW ORLEANS - Navy couldn't ground Tulane's air attack last night and absorbed its worst beating of the 2004 season. Quarterback Lester Ricard completed 18 of 19 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns, shredding Navy's 10th-ranked pass defense and leading the underdog Green Wave to a surprisingly easy 42-10 victory at the Louisiana Superdome. By far, it was the lowest ebb of the fall for the Midshipmen (7-2), whose only previous loss was to a vastly superior Notre Dame team three weeks earlier.

Tulane loves to travel by air, so Navy's assignment tonight is to disrupt its flight plans. "They're going to test us early," said veteran Midshipman corner Vaughn Kelley. "I wouldn't put that past them. I don't know what it is about New Orleans, all the scoring they've done against us here. We plan on trying to change that. It's a challenge to hold them down." Kelley and his mates in the defensive secondary will be on center stage when the rivals with contrasting approaches to offense clash tonight at the Superdome, starting at 7 p.m. Navy pits its third-ranked rushing offense, paced by quarterback Aaron Polanco and fullback Kyle Eckel, against the Green Wave's fast fleet of receivers, paced by NFL prospect Roydell Williams, in a game between teams that have typically produced a ton of points when they meet.

NEW ORLEANS - After living on the edge for the majority of a charmed season, Navy's football team fell off the cliff last night. Uninspired, error-ridden and overmatched in raw talent, the Midshipmen absorbed their worst beating of 2004, falling to underdog Tulane, 42-10, before an announced crowd of 21,484 at the Louisiana Superdome. Navy (7-2) could never establish its game against a Green Wave team that has scored 185 points in its past four meetings against the Mids in New Orleans and was coming off a 24-3 loss to Houston last week.

Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson played Tipitina's last week. The streetcars are running on Canal Street and the bars in the French Quarter have gotten the green light to remain open all night. Dave Dickerson would love to say that things are returning to normal in New Orleans, but he's still learning his way around town. Tulane's rookie coach will run his first practice on campus tomorrow. It's unusual to hold an 8 p.m. workout on Christmas Eve, but nothing has been status quo for the Green Wave and its city since Hurricane Katrina hit a week before Labor Day. "We have two freshmen players and they've never attended a class on campus," said Dickerson, who spent 12 seasons at Maryland as a player and assistant coach before taking on what already figured to be a daunting rebuilding job. "Those two kids and the four guys on the coaching staff have never practiced in Fogelman Arena or had a game there.

The Maryland men's basketball team is enjoying a trip to Hawaii this week. The Terps are playing some of the best teams in the country, not far from some of the nicest beaches. They're nationally ranked and have beautiful facilities back home. Oh, and did I mention they're in Hawaii? This is what Dave Dickerson walked away from last spring, leaving College Park and stepping right into a storm. After 15 years as an assistant coach - including the past nine at Maryland - Dickerson accepted a head coaching job at Tulane.

Everything fell conveniently into place for Navy on Saturday, just in time to gather momentum for its biggest challenge of the season. The Midshipmen had the incentive of a 32-point loss last season to the opponent they were playing and an ugly defeat, their worst of this season, the previous weekend at Rutgers. They had been pushed through a strenuous week of practice to be showcased before a homecoming crowd and several bowl scouts. And Tulane was visiting Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium with a multitude of difficulties that stemmed from being uprooted by the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.

Navy is hoping its generosity toward Tulane stops at kickoff time today in its annual homecoming game. After suffering their worst defeat of the season last weekend, the Midshipmen need to rebound against a Tulane team turned into a vagabond by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and playing for the first time this season in a game not altered because of weather. "My heart goes out to them for what they've gone through," said Navy coach Paul Johnson. "I'm sure it's been difficult. Anytime you have to move like that, it's a tough situation.
