With an 8-6 record and one final regular-season contest at No. 11 Maryland, Colgate has not been mathematically eliminated from consideration for an at-large berth in the NCAA tournament. But unlike last year when the team went 13-3 in the regular season and garnered only the program's second tournament appearance, coach Mike Murphy is not holding out for another at-large spot when the 16-team bracket is unveiled Sunday night. “I'm sure there's probably some sort of mathematical substance to that, but we're 29th in the RPI, and I don't know that a team outside of the top 17 or 18 in the RPI has ever made it to the NCAA tournament that wasn't an automatic qualifier,” he said Tuesday.

Colgate coach Mike Murphy sees a lot of similarities when he looks at Loyola Maryland and the Raiders' last opponent, Cornell, especially in their respective ability to pounce on transition opportunities and turn them into goals. He said his team's ability to understand and account for that will go a long way to determining the outcome against the Greyhounds on Saturday in Hamilton, N.Y. "I think as you look at this team you have to be great in transition," Murphy said. "They are lethal six-on-six on offense but may be one of best transition teams with [midfielder]

There are die-hard runners. And then there is Mike Murphy. The 58-year-old northern Baltimore County man often wakes up at 3 a.m. to run through the city before reporting to work. On the weekends, closer to home, he runs mile after mile around Prettyboy Reservoir. Murphy is what is known as an ultra runner, and he plans to start tomorrow on a 100-mile race - in Alaska, in snowshoes. For the Susitna 100-Mile Race, he'll follow part of the course of the Iditarod dogsled competition. He'll cross several frozen rivers, and fight frostbite and hypothermia, and pull a sled with survival supplies.

You can't complete a Tough Mudder alone - the grueling 10- to 12-mile course with more than 20 obstacles designed by British Special Forces is set up to make sure of that. And of the expected 14,000 people participating in the Mid-Atlantic challenges this weekend in Gerrardstown, W.Va., perhaps no one understands this fact more than Baltimore resident Kate Robertson, 29, and her team. Helping one another navigate obstacles that border on cruel and unusual punishment - such as army-crawling on a layer of ice to avoid electric wires overhead - proves even more challenging when one of your teammates is a paraplegic.
