New Maryland football coach Randy Edsall might have found a way to silence the skeptics who thought he'd been bringing a conservative offense from Connecticut to College Park. Edsall could be in the process of hiring LSU offensive coordinator Gary Crowton. Crowton, whose wide-open offensive philosphy helped the Tigers win a BCS national championship in his first season in Baton Rouge, told the Shreveport Times Wednesday night that he was offered a three-year contract after an interview earlier in the day. Crowton said the offer was for $500,000 a year, a little more than he was making at LSU. "When I went up there, they offered me a lot of money," said Crowton, who has one year remaining on a reported $475,000 a year deal with the Tigers.

The Ravens meet Sunday with LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry, one of the better and tougher receiver prospects in the NFL draft. The meeting is expected to include coach John Harbaugh. Landry caught a career-high 77 passes for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior, excelling on third downs as a clutch player capable of making acrobatic, one-handed catches and showing no fear going over the middle to catch passes in heavy traffic. What he's lacked is consistency, though. He excelled on third downs as the nation's leader in third-down production, piling up 453 yards and six touchdowns and Landry has drawn comparisons from draft analysts to former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker.

The Maryland football team announced on Saturday the hiring of former LSU assistant Greg Studrawa as it offensive line coach. Studrawa, who coached the Tigers' offensive line from 2007 to 2013, replaces longtime offensive line coach Tom Brattan, whose contract was not renewed after last season. Brattan's initial replacement was Dave DeGuglielmo, formerly a New Jets assistant. But DeGuglielmo accepted a position last week as the New England Patriots' offensive line coach. “Greg will be a great addition to our coaching staff,” Maryland head coach Randy Edsall said in a release.

When Towson athletic director Mike Waddell broached the idea with Rob Ambrose of taking his football team down to play LSU in Baton Rouge for the fourth game of the 2012 season, the Tigers' coach was decidedly lukewarm. The initial discussion took place two summers ago before the athletic department's annual crab feast in Ocean City . At the time, Towson was coming off a 1-10 season in 2010 after going 2-9 in Ambrose's first year at his alma mater. Their turnaround 9-3 season in 2011 was still months away.

Towson University's football squad came out of Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday with a loss to No. 3 LSU, but gave their counterpart Tigers a game effort in a 38-22 contest. In a game televised on ESPNU, Towson actually held a 9-7 lead in the second quarter after the two teams traded touchdowns (Towson's extra point kick failed) and Towson also had a field goal. But LSU added 10 points before halftime, then another 7 in the third quarter to stave off the pesky visiting Tigers. In the fourth quarter, both teams scored two touchdowns.

On the football field, Towson University's game Saturday night against No. 3 Louisiana State University gave 60 players a chance to dream of the ultimate upset. Off the field, it gave the Towson athletic department the funds it needs to stay solvent and the sort of exposure that could help the school and the football program grow. LSU paid Towson $510,000 to travel to Baton Rouge's Tiger Stadium, which seats more than 92,000 people and is considered one of the nation's most difficult places to play.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Californians are still Indiana dreaming. UCLA became the other survivor late last night, eclipsing a young LSU team handily, 59-45, to move into the NCAA tournament final for the first time since 1995, when the school won the last of its record 11 championships. In their 15th Final Four, the Bruins (32-6) easily handled the Tigers (27-9) to advance to tomorrow night's championship game against Florida (32-6). The Bruins quickly drained the suspense out of a game that many felt they wouldn't win. Building leads of 18-8 and 27-6 before hitting the locker room at halftime with a 39-24 advantage, the Bruins wasted no time laying to rest any notion of an LSU comeback at the beginning of the second half and led by 23 points with 13 minutes to go. In an NCAA tournament that has been notable for amazingly tight finishes, with overtimes common and last-minute or last-second winning shots, the semifinals proved anti-climactic.

The verdict has been rendered, and there will be a rematch. No. 2 Alabama (11-1) edged out No. 3 Oklahoma State (11-1) in Sunday's final Bowl Championship Series standings to earn the right to play No. 1 LSU for the national title Jan. 9 in New Orleans. So was the verdict wrong? "For whatever reason, we came up a little bit short," a disappointed Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. "We all have to live with the system," Alabama coach Nick Saban said on ESPN's bowl selection show.

In the college football world, there wasn't a better coaching hire this past offseason than Cam Cameron. Those aren't my words. Those are the words of Sporting News senior writer Matt Hayes , who recently wrote that "there's not a single coach who has done more for a team's championship hopes than the man who, when we last saw him in college football, was being run out of town at, of all places, Indiana.” Cameron was run out of Baltimore, too,...

The small but heavy package arrived in Baton Rouge on Tuesday and was delivered around lunchtime. Cam Cameron ripped open the package and gazed at his championship ring from Super Bowl XLVII, the one the Ravens went on to win after relieving him of his duties in December. The dazzling ring weighed 380 grams, was encrusted with 243 round-cut diamonds and crafted in 10-karat white gold with yellow highlights. Without a hint of resentment, the team's former offensive coordinator who was at times the most-scrutinized man in the Baltimore area, said he appreciated the gesture from the Ravens and their owner, Steve Bisciotti.

More than two months since he was relieved of his duties as the Ravens offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron officially returned to coaching today, this time at the college level.   The 52-year-old, who called the Ravens' offensive plays for five seasons before he was fired by head coach John Harbaugh a day after the team's Dec. 9 loss to the Washington Redskins, was announced today as LSU 's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, reuniting him with his longtime friend, Tigers coach Les Miles . Cameron and Miles worked together for seven years on the University of Michigan coaching staff, prompting a question about whether he has any concerns working with a close friend.

If defense wins championships, LSU is headed to New Orleans. The Tigers' young, in-your-face defense has been impressive in wins over Oregon and Mississippi State. Surviving the rest of the schedule won't be easy, starting with a trip to West Virginia this week, but LSU looks like a legitimate contender for the BCS title game. Kellen Moore is the best player who won't win the Heisman. The senior quarterback is as polished as they come, but he plays at Boise State. An easy schedule will hamper his chances for college football's top award.

Gary Crowton extends his right hand to display the damage. The wrist had to be stabilized with a plate and 11 screws after two players careened into him as he coached at an LSU practice several years ago. He also suffered a concussion and lost a few teeth. "Didn't miss a practice," he says. At 54, Maryland's new offensive coordinator carries multiple reminders - physical and emotional - of being a football lifer. He won a national championship as LSU's offensive coordinator, popularized a version of the wide-receiver screen as coordinator of the Chicago Bears, and was instrumental in bringing longtime friend Chip Kelly to Oregon, last season's national title runner-up.
