The Towson football team has already set benchmarks that will be difficult to match or exceed in future years: a single-season record of 12 victories, two NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoff wins and the program's first appearance in the tournament semifinals. But with little time between the No. 7 seed Tigers' 49-39 upset of No. 2 seed Eastern Illinois in a tournament quarterfinal Friday night and their game at No. 3 seed Eastern Washington on Saturday at 2 p.m., coach Rob Ambrose said there hasn't been much opportunity to sit back and enjoy the team's accomplishments.

Comments and observations about the U.S. Olympic speed skating team should cover the gamut of possible influences as to the unexpected results of the competition ( "In Sochi, Under Armour skates into some sturm und drang," Feb. 15). It seems very strange to me that so many are quick to point to a very thin, sleek, and I am sure almost weightless, suit as being the culprit for outcomes that have not resulted in winning Olympic medals. I have competed in athletics for many years, not anywhere close to the Olympic level, but regardless of the level, I do know that for each and every sport there is a myriad of areas that influence outcomes.

Air travelers pay twice for the pleasure of flying to exotic, distant places. There's the ticket to buy, of course, and then there's the biological tab."Jet lag is the price we pay for being able to travel the way we do now," says Lynne Lamberg, author of "Bodyrhythms, Chronobiology and Peak Performance" (William Morrow and Co., (Chronobiology is the study of body time.) But the price may be coming down if major studies confirm what a few small ones have called to light about what has been dubbed "the darkness hormone."

OAKLAND, Calif. - Traveling to the West Coast for their longest road trip of 2013, and kicking it off in their personal palace of horrors, it wouldn't have been surprising if the Orioles would have come out flat Thursday night. Instead, they seemingly awakened after two blasé innings to batter the Oakland Athletics, 10-2, and win for just the fourth time in their last 20 games at the Oakland Coliseum. Starter Jason Hammel pitched six solid innings, leadoff hitter Nate McLouth continued his recent torrid streak and all nine Orioles starters had at least one hit. “The first couple innings I felt like we had a little jet lag working," said first baseman Chris Davis, who hit his eighth homer of the season in the sixth inning.

Rex Ryan is going to have to be part coach, part chemist this season. The Jets coach, whose team surprisingly came within a victory of the Super Bowl last season, let three locker-room fixtures go — Thomas Jones, Alan Faneca and Leon Washington — and made some high-profile and dicey additions, including Santonio Holmes, Antonio Cromartie, LaDainian Tomlinson and Jason Taylor. The football world will get an up-close view of what unfolds, as the Jets are the featured team on HBO's reality series "Hard Knocks."

New drug may offer relief from jet lag An experimental drug that mimics the effects of the hormone melatonin can reset the body's circadian rhythms, bringing relief to jet-lagged travelers and night-shift workers, researchers reported last week. In a study of 450 people who were subjected to simulated jet lag in a sleep laboratory, a team from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston found that the drug restored near-normal sleep the first night it was used. There were no after effects, minimal side effects and people who took it performed normally the next day, said Dr. Elizabeth B. Klerman, one of the authors of the study published online in the journal Lancet.

He has traveled to so many cities and countries since the Olympics ended, when he wakes up in the morning, it's almost impossible for Michael Phelps to remember the date, or even what day it is. Is today Friday? Or is it Thursday? Without looking at his BlackBerry, he has no clue. Luckily for him, he has people - mainly his agent, Peter Carlisle, and his media manager, Drew Johnson, both of Octagon - to tell him where his schedules dictate that he needs to be. His schedule called for him to be in Baltimore yesterday, marking just the second time he has been home since he won eight gold medals in Beijing.

And now they had 14 hours to think about it -- 14 hours to contemplate the loss, and their 2-5 record, and their turnover problems, and, most pressing, their impending date with Big East favorite St. John's, which is but one day and a wicked case of jet lag away.

CHARLES F. EHRET, 83 Expert on jet lag Charles F. Ehret, whose research into circadian rhythms in animals and humans led to a diet to combat the effects of jet lag, died Feb. 24. Mr. Ehret died of natural causes in his home in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Ill., his family said. In 1983, he published the book Overcoming Jet Lag with co-author Lynne Waller Scanlon. The book outlined a diet using a planned rescheduling of meal times, including types and amounts of food to be eaten to avoid jet lag. It also specified alternate days of feasting and fasting to help speed adjustment to new time zones.

Time waits for no man, particularly when you're rapidly crossing several time zones. Your body just can't keep up. Most long-distance travelers are affected by jet lag, caused by a mismatch between the external clock and their internal clocks. They get to their destination and often feel like they've been run over by a truck. They can't sleep or they feel sleepy at odd times. Perceptual skills and cognitive ability drop. Concentration goes out the window. As motivational speaker and humorist Linda Perret once said, "Jet lag is nature's way of making you look like your passport photo."
