John Jenkins knows the heartache of losing a child. But he and six other families have learned firsthand that such tragic deaths needn't be in vain. Jenkins, 56, lost his 20-year-old son 18 years ago to a motorcycle accident. But when 21-year old Joshua L. Aversano died after being struck by a car last year, Jenkins was one of six people whose lives were dramatically changed by the tragedy. Jenkins had been waiting more than two years for a new heart. Doctors were able to harvest not just Aversano's heart, but his liver, kidneys, pancreas and a lung, which also went to waiting patients.

Notre Dame outgoing president Rev. Edward Malloy said yesterday that he is embarrassed that the school fired coach Tyrone Willingham with two years remaining on his contract, the Sports Business Daily reported. "In my 18 years, there have been only two days that I have been embarrassed to be president of Notre Dame: Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, because I felt we had not abided by our precedent," Malloy said at Street & Smith's Intercollegiate Athletics Forum in New York. He later added: "Notre Dame will get a coach.

It is probably an un-Christian emotion, but there is an undeniably exquisite pleasure in seeing arrogance punished, in seeing the bully pummeled into a whimpering puddle.So even though the result was evident early on, and even though the lopsided game droned into its fourth hour, you kept your finger off the channel changer and stayed with the public flogging of Houston's football team. Justice at last. Comeuppance richly deserved.All that tempered your rejoicing was that the beating was being administered by Miami, Houston's mirror image in confusing crass with class, a team that insists on blemishing its stunning skills with boorishness and thuggery.

The Ravens filled one area of need by selecting Florida safety Matt Elam in the first round Thursday night, and now they might go after a middle or outside linebacker. Finding a middle linebacker is more of a pressing need, but the Ravens will stay with their philosophy of taking the best player available. A few inside linebackers the Ravens have an eye on are Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, Louisiana State's Kevin Minter and Florida's Jonathan Bostic. They also like Connecticut outside linebacker Sio Moore and Kansas State's Arthur Brown.
