The last thing a struggling passing offense needs is a matchup against a defense with a relentless pass rush. That's the scenario awaiting Towson (2-3 overall and 0-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association) when the Tigers play league rival Stony Brook at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Towson, which ranks 112th out of 121 Football Championship Subdivision teams in passing at 115.6 yards per game, meets a Seawolves defense that ranks sixth in the country in sacks with 17. But as coach Rob Ambrose pointed out, sacks aren't the only department in which Stony Brook fares well.

Why didn't our president and his family take their weekend vacation in the oil-soaked gulf area instead of Maine? It would have meant a lot to so many Americans to see our president lead by example instead of their privileged me and mine first attitude! For supposedly smart people, they sure can do dumb things!

What seemed like an obvious transition in the main event picture from Night of Champions to Hell in a Cell has been thrown into disarray over the past two weeks. On Monday night, Dean Ambrose once again was the feature attraction as he tormented Seth Rollins throughout the night. He had stolen the Money in the Bank briefcase on Smackdown, and continued to walk around with it. Later in the night, he turned the briefcase over to Rollins (accompanied by Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury and other “security”)

Quarterback Grant Enders led Towson with 104 yards rushing, including a 52-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter to ice the victory. Tailback Terrance West (Northwestern) pitched in 96 yards on 18 carries for the Tigers (3-3, 2-1 Colonial Athletic Association)

In fact, Carolyn Chute says she's gotten used to being criticized for her three quirky novels about working-class Maine -- "after 20 or so reviews, your book is totally bruised."But don't make fun of the people she writes about. That makes Carolyn Chute mad.The Carolyn Chute who will read tonight at 8 at Goucher College's Haebler Chapel is an exception in the current American literary environment, in which writers are expected to write dispassionately or ironically about their subjects.

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

Two days after Towson allowed visiting Maine to convert three fourth downs and score the game-winning touchdown in the final minute of a 27-24 loss Saturday night, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose admitted that the pain continues to linger. Faced with a decision of whether to massage or discipline Towson (2-3 overall, 0-1 Colonial Athletic Association), Ambrose said he remembers to take a page from late Hall of Fame and Orioles manager Earl Weaver's playbook. “One of the best lessons I ever learned was to listen to Earl Weaver talk about his teams -- his very, very successful teams and all of the different personalities,” Ambrose said Monday afternoon during his weekly conference call arranged by the CAA. “He would tell you that once you lose - especially the ones that hurt - you've got to love them up. You've got to remind them who they can be. And when you win, that's the time when you've really got to step on them and say, 'This is what we're not doing.' It's a way to keep them motivated and focused on the next game.

Like many of his teammates in Towson's 27-24 stunning loss to Maine in the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams Saturday night, Sam Hurwitz had an unsteady performance. The junior kicker converted all three of his extra-point attempts and easily nailed a 25-yard field goal in the first quarter. But he also had a 45-yard try that went outside the right upright in the fourth quarter that preceded the Black Bears' eventual game-winning touchdown. Hurwitz, who has connected on four of six field goals this season, converted a career-long 39-yard field goal in the Tigers' 31-20 victory over North Carolina Central on Sept.

Scouts from the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles who attended Towson's Colonial Athletic Association opener with Maine Saturday night to gauge Ryan Delaire's talent were treated to a tantalizing display. The senior defensive end matched his season total of three sacks in the Tigers' 27-24 loss. He had sacks on back-to-back plays in the third quarter and lodged his final takedown later in the same period. After getting credited with 3½ tackles in the first half, Delaire posted his three sacks and another half tackle in the second half, which occurred after a halftime discussion with coach Rob Ambrose.

With Towson featuring nine new starters on offense and five on defense, many expected this year's team to be a much different group from last season's squad that advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game. That difference is especially stark when considering how the 2014 Tigers have struggled to finish off opponents. While last year's team won 11 of 12 games in which it had the lead or the score was tied after three quarters, the current squad has lost two of three games in which it had the advantage or the score was tied heading into the final period.

PORTLAND, Maine -- Running for governor again, Joe Brennan's prime asset is his resume. At 59, he can look back on 30 years as a state legislator, Cumberland County district attorney, two terms as state attorney general, two as governor, then two in the House of Representatives.But that same resume is Joe Brennan's greatest liability. He is the quintessential career politician in a time and a state where that experience may be difficult to market.Nor is the political context encouraging for any conventional politician.
