Nov. 18, 2012 will not be remembered fondly by Rob Ambrose. That was the day the Towson football coach's worst fears were confirmed when the NCAA selection committee did not invite the program to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs despite the Tigers finishing with a 7-4 record and a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title. "Professionally, it was the worst day of my life," Ambrose recalled. "I know I didn't handle it well. I was an emotional disaster. We dumped our hearts and souls to give these kids the best opportunity to win the national championship.

In about a week, Stanton Kidd will visit Fort Collins, Colo., for the first time in his life. The former Edmondson star will make his trip out West as the newest member of the Colorado State men's basketball team. “They never pressured me to sign or pressured me for a verbal commit,” said Kidd, who is transferring to CSU from North Carolina Central. “I got tired of waiting. I knew I wanted to go there. Other schools were calling, so [I thought] 'I'll just go ahead. I'll get it done early - this is where I want to go.'” In March, Kidd wrapped up excellent first college season at NCCU, averaging 14.5 points and 6.9 rebounds for the Eagles.

For those who wonder how long it will take America to fully recover from the bombing at Oklahoma City 15 days ago, perhaps some lessons can be taken from 25 years ago this day at Kent State.In myriad ways, America has long recovered from the killing of four students on the commons of that northeast Ohio university. Black-and-white pictures from that student showdown with the gas-masked National Guard now seem as distant as daguerreotypes from the Civil War. The nation now has a president who took part in anti-Vietnam war demonstrations.

A Navy secondary that has been completely revamped gets an immediate test today at home against a team that fills the air with footballs. With cornerback Jeremy McGown out with a broken arm, Navy's starting secondary from a year ago has been overhauled. And up next today is Kent State, which usually struggles early and then is forced to open its passing game. The Golden Flashes haven't scored in the first half since Sept. 10, but they average 288.2 passing yards per game. Quarterback Michael Machen, who at 6 feet 6 "is bigger than anybody we have," said Navy coach Paul Johnson, will play after missing the last game with a strained left knee.

SAN DIEGO -- By the time Friday's news conference was over, the Cincinnati men's basketball team had had enough of the chiding over its past failures in the NCAA tournament. Four times the Bearcats had earned top-three seeds in the NCAAs, and four times they had been upset in the second round. This wouldn't happen against Kent State. Forward Jamaal Davis hit eight of nine shots for 16 points to go with 10 rebounds as No. 5 seed Cincinnati (25-9) cruised into next week's West Regional semifinals in Anaheim, Calif.

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kent State's crusade for acceptance beyond the Mid-American Conference soared to a new level last night when the Golden Flashes bounced third-seeded Pittsburgh, 78-73, in overtime of a South Regional semifinal at Rupp Arena. The victory propelled the 10th-seeded Flashes into tomorrow's South final against Indiana, a team they beat a year ago when they started their run to NCAA tournament prominence. Last night, Kent State (30-5), winning its 21st consecutive game, became the first MAC team to reach the Elite Eight and the first to win 30 games.

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Two nights after Indiana pounded the ball inside to take out the NCAA's defending champion, the versatile Hoosiers banished Cinderella with a hail of three-point shots. Indiana hit a staggering 15 of 19 shots from beyond the arc to beat Kent State, 81-69, in the South Regional final at sold-out Rupp Arena last night and earn the school's eighth trip to the Final Four. "If we'd have had 10 people out there, I don't think we could've stopped them tonight," said an exasperated Andrew Mitchell of Kent State.

If at-large teams from mid-major conferences thought they were overlooked in recent years by the NCAA tournament selection committee, they might feel totally ignored when bids are announced next month. Those who seemed invitation-worthy a month ago have put themselves in precarious positions. Take Kent State, a Cinderella team in last season's tournament that reached the Elite Eight before losing to Indiana. The Golden Flashes started this season 17-2 despite losing four of their top five scorers and coach Stan Heath to Arkansas, and were as high as 27th in the Rating Percentage Index (RPI)

A year after leading Towson to its first Football Championship Subdivision appearance in school history, fourth-year coach Rob Ambrose reacted angrily Sunday after his 7-4 Tigers were snubbed by the NCAA selection committee for an invitation to this season's playoffs. Despite finishing the season on a four-game winning streak, including a 64-35 demolition of playoff-bound New Hampshire in Durham, N.H., Saturday, Towson failed to be invited into the 20-team field after losing in the opening round to Lehigh in 2011.

Now the pressure is on the Tigers to live up to their billing as the preseason favorite in 2012. Picking up an early conference win on national television after their season-opening loss at Kent State will be huge.

Daniel Muir looked out at the field this week where crews were painting " Colts" and "Saints" in the end zone. He surveyed the mob scene of Media Day, cameras and microphones swarming around him and his Indianapolis teammates at Sun Life Stadium. "I'm like a sponge soaking all this in," he said. "You dream about the Super Bowl. To know your hard work and prayers can take you wherever you want to go, it's awesome, man." Muir is a 315-pound sponge, which is fortunate. There is a lot to take in when he reflects on the unlikely trip from Riverdale's Parkdale High in Prince George's County to starting at defensive tackle Sunday in the Super Bowl.
