Irish, with the right coach Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times This one is, to mix my metaphors, a slam dunk. Notre Dame will return to glory as soon as it hires the right coach. People wondered if Southern California could ever win big again after going through the Ted Tollner, Larry Smith, John Robinson II and Paul Hackett years. USC had lost its mojo. Really? The Trojans shot back to the top after hiring Pete Carroll. Programs with tradition have the advantage in having that tradition.

Gilman's Kai Locksley has committed to play football for national champion Florida State, the program he believes is most likely to help him reach his dream of becoming an NFL quarterback. The son of Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, he said his decision came down to Florida State or Texas. He had the Terps in his top three, but said he recently dropped them from consideration. Locksley, 6 feet 5 and 200 pounds, said the decision came down to his comfort level with coach at Florida State.

It was October 2011, and I remember standing just off the field inside Doak Campbell Stadium for media interviews after Florida State's 41-16 victory over the Terps . It was a rough day for the Terps. I remember that coach Randy Edsall made a memorably candid statement. "We just don't match up with the speed and athleticism of Clemson and Florida State. That's what we are going to have to do from a recruiting standpoint," said Edsall. He sounded determined, almost defiant, about the ultimate course of his program.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What are the keys to Maryland's chances against Florida State, a more than two-touchdown favorite? Jeff Barker: I'm going to be watching the takeaways. The Terps have 13 of them this season, tying them for fifth in the nation. Their opportunism has characterized the first third of the defense's season. Maryland has created turnovers partly by forcing quarterbacks into rushed decisions.

Maryland's 41-16 loss to Florida State was one of those dispiriting games for Terps fans in which the team trailed so quickly that there was a sense of forever trying to swim upstream. But there were interesting developments nonetheless that occurred later in the game: *I was intrigued by the fact that Danny O'Brien came in and immediately began throwing downfield. This is a Maryland team that has seemed protective of its quarterbacks. For much of C.J. Brown's playing time, the game plan had seemed to be to get the ball out of the quarterback's hand swiftly on short throws, That's understandable to a point given Florida State's fierce pass rush (six sacks)

Watch Florida State Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel If anyone needs an indication Florida State is making its way back atop the college football landscape, look no further than national signing day. The Seminoles could be the biggest surprise Wednesday, when they land one of the top recruiting classes this season. It didn't take long for coach Jimbo Fisher to show fans he is serious about building a national powerhouse. With players such as safety Karlos Williams, running back James Wilder Jr. and offensive lineman Josue Matias, this could be one of Florida State's best classes ever.

Alabama vs. Oklahoma Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune We already know one of the teams that will get there. Sort of. For five straight years, the survivor of the SEC title game has played for — and won — all the marbles. Who will that be? Hard to deny Alabama and its Darth Vader coach, Nick Saban. The Crimson Tide have the nation's best defense this side of Nebraska, and the SEC West has been weakened by that LSU bar fight. Alabama will have to get through Oklahoma to claim another national title.

Authorities charged nine Michigan State players with misdemeanor assault and conspiracy Wednesday following last month's dormitory brawl. The players, all suspended by coach Mark Dantonio , face up to a one-year maximum sentence on the conspiracy charge, and up to 93 days on the other charges. A Michigan State spokesman said the suspended players, which include starting DB Chris L. Rucker and receivers B.J. Cunningham and Mark Dell , are not allowed in the weight room, study areas or other parts of the football building and will not accompany the team to its Jan. 2 Alamo Bowl game against Texas Tech.

Gary Pinkel helped lead long-suffering Missouri into college football's elite this year. Now he has the contract to match that lofty perch. Missouri athletic director Mike Alden announced yesterday that Pinkel will receive a $550,000 annual raise, boosting his guaranteed compensation to $1.85 million a year. Pinkel also gets a one-year extension through 2012. Late last season, he was given a $225,000 raise and three-year extension. The announcement comes as No. 7 Missouri (11-2) prepares to face No. 25 Arkansas (8-4)

Florida State's media notes project a key battle Saturday between Maryland receiver Stefon Diggs and Seminoles senior cornerback Lamarcus Joyner. That should be fun to watch. But I'm looking forward to seeing how Maryland's pressure - the Terps have been sack happy through four games - fares against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. I wrote a story for tomorrow's paper on Winston , who I spoke with briefly today. The striking thing about Winston is how calm and focused he has been to begin his career.
