The Towson-Morgan State football series might become less than the home-and-home series that was intended when the schools contracted to play each other late in 1997.Towson's Minnegan Stadium may become the site of Morgan State's home games in 1999 -- including the Oct. 9 Towson game -- according to sources at both schools. An agreement could be reached in the next month in which Morgan State would pay a still-undetermined amount to cover the costs of running the facility.Its basketball teams will soon be back in Hill Field House after two years of exile at Baltimore City Community College and Gilman School.

By the middle of the fourth quarter of Morgan State's 28-3 win over Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday, running back Herb Walker Jr. had gained 118 yards, marking the third straight game in which the team had a 100-yard rusher. But with 3:27 left, the redshirt sophomore was stripped of the football by Bulldogs junior linebacker Robert Burke, and redshirt junior outside linebacker Jonathan Harris pounced on the loose ball at the Bears' 41-yard line. Normally, that might have been the end of the day for Walker as he had nothing left to prove and there seemed to be no point in putting him back in at risk of injury with Morgan State holding a 14-3 advantage.

Morgan State waited two long years to play a home game and was desperately counting on a positive turn to coincide with the arrival of newly renovated Hughes Stadium. A fresh start is exactly what the Bears believed was needed, but instead they started out stale against Howard University yesterday afternoon and never found any footing on their new home turf. With an unpredictable and surprisingly efficient offense complementing a suddenly sack-happy defense, the visiting Bison spoiled Morgan State's return to campus with an overwhelming 41-15 win in front of 14,262 fans.

In the final seconds of the Morgan State football team's 28-3 thumping of visiting Bowie State (0-2) at Hughes Stadium on Saturday, Lee Hull did his best to avoid what has become a tradition for rookie head coaches: a Gatorade bath. Hull stood on the far end of the Bears (1-2) sideline while the offense marched downfield. He kept his eyes on assistant coaches who tried to distract him while a couple players grabbed the monstrous jug. Eventually, Hull appeared to give in, walking back to the end of the field where the offense was putting the finishing touches on the victory.

Morgan State senior linebacker Cody Acker expects students on campus to know plenty about the Bears from their play, even before the team takes the field at Hughes Stadium for the first time this season. "Home or away, football is football, the crowd behind you or not," said Acker, who led the team with 97 tackles last season, at the team's media day Sunday.

The gentleman evident in Ali Culpepper after he scores a touchdown comes from his coach and goes way back. Culpepper was a frequent visitor to the end zone in his Pop Warner days for the Northwood Rams, with a norm of two or three touchdowns a game and up to six or seven on occasion. He once had something special planned for the next time he scored, but his coach intervened. Said Culpepper: "We had a playoff game against Rosedale, and the day before I was talking about how I was going to dance in the end zone and all that kind of stuff.

Chad Simpson's anguished face told the story of lost opportunity. His throbbing left ankle told the story of true grit. Not even a school rushing record could take away that pain after Morgan State skidded to the precipice of another losing season last night. Despite Simpson's 215-yard rushing performance, the Bears stumbled to a 24-16 loss to Norfolk State before an announced 5,736 at Hughes Stadium.

Like two families who can't quite see eye to eye but have agreed to put aside their differences, Morgan State and Towson State play football for the first time in five years today.And there will be something more on the line at Hughes Stadium than usual."A lot of these guys have never gone through the cross-town rivalry game," said Towson coach Gordie Combs. "I think it's great to play those games. I went to Calvert Hall, and I know how it is to play somebody in the area and to have it mean something.

Lee Hull didn't need any convincing that his Morgan State defense was physical. What he had been waiting for was proof that the unit could stop opposing offenses. Hull got what he wanted in the Bears' 28-3 rout of Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday. A defense that had surrendered a combined 60 points and 53 first downs in back-to-back losses allowed just a first-quarter field goal and 19 first downs overall. After the Bulldogs (0-2) went 69 yards on their first drive to convert a 37-yard field goal, they had only one longer series, and that ended in a fumble Morgan State (1-2)

After starting fast but finishing poorly in its first two games, the Morgan State football team flipped the script Saturday. The Bears overcame a lethargic start, woke up their sleeping offense and scored all four of the game's touchdowns in the second half to knock off visiting Bowie State, 28-3, before an announced 4,238 at Hughes Stadium. Morgan State was happy to win its first game of the season, but Bears first-year coach Lee Hull said the team can ill afford slow starts.

As one of the shortest players on the Morgan State football team, Herb Walker Jr. has a nickname among his Bears teammates: "Smurf. " The running back, who recently confessed to being 1 inch shorter than his already diminutive listed height of 5 feet 8, has heard worse from defenses. The insults don't bother him as much as the assumptions behind them. Opponents tell Walker he's "soft. Or I don't run hard," he said. "But they'll feel me when I get the ball. " Neither label fit after the 19-year-old Walker set a school record a week ago. In Morgan State's 26-23 loss Saturday to Holy Cross, 26-23, the sophomore rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.

As the former wide receivers coach at Maryland, first-year head coach Lee Hull is intent on adding a passing element to Morgan State's offense. But tailback Lamont Brown III hopes Hull won't overlook what has been the unit's traditional strength: running the football. “I look at myself and Herb [Walker Jr.] as two of the top running backs in the [Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference],” said Brown, a redshirt sophomore. “Whether [Hull] wants to run the ball or we have to get involved with the passing game, we're still going to be there, and he has two of the best running backs in the league and can't forget about us.” Brown, redshirt sophomore Walker and senior Tracy Martin make up a formidable partnership in the offensive backfield.

The Morgan State secondary that took the field at Hughes Stadium on Wednesday with the rest of the first defense consisted of junior cornerbacks DeShaun Summers and Delonta Hall, junior free safety Peterson Janvier and senior strong safety Nathan Ayers. Of that foursome, however, only Ayers started a game last season. The lack of starting experience in the defensive backfield might be alarming to some, but coach Lee Hull said it doesn't bother him. “They're a little green, but I'm not too worried about them,” Hull said after Wednesday's practice.
