COLLEGE PARK - As Dennard Wilson can attest, great feats sometimes have humble beginnings. It wasn't so long ago that Wilson, a senior strong safety, was a shaky sophomore in Maryland's much-maligned secondary. In 2001, Florida State quarterback Chris Rix went out of his way to pick on Wilson in a 52-31 win in Tallahassee, Fla., in which Rix threw five touchdown passes. Wilson, however, erased the game from his memory and has improved steadily ever since. He's widely regarded as one of the Terps' team leaders.

Overall, it wasn't a memorable night for commercials. But these stood out: * Baltimore already knew how Ray Lewis could dance, but he showed off smooth moves for SoBe Lifewater. And nice hat. * The Pedigree ad was in the Super Bowl spirit: people making do with no dogs by having a rhinoceros or ostrich. * In the same vein was the Pepsi commercial showing how "men can take anything." * Any Bob Dylan sighting is noteworthy, and hearing him and Will.i.am perform "Forever Young" stood out. * One of the most clever commercials was Coke's, with insects teaming up to swipe a picnicker's soda.

Another fantasy football season ends and we enter those bleak two months before pitchers and catchers report and preparations for fantasy baseball can begin. But it's not time to get somber yet (maybe next week), so let's look back at a fun season and celebrate the biggest achievers. May those of you who won titles last weekend or are playing for them this weekend read along with particular glee. Fantasy Most Valuable Player: Shaun Alexander This turned into a no-brainer as Alexander, picked second overall in many drafts, produced one of the most productive running seasons in NFL history.
