Towson's 54-0 loss to West Virginia on Saturday night may have been stunning to Tigers fans, but it brought on a different feeling from coach Rob Ambrose. Ambrose, who had not been shut out since Nov. 6, 2010 when Delaware beat Towson, 48-0, was critical of his team's effort against the Mountaineers, saying, “We cleared up some of the fog of the fakers. We found out the guys who talk the talk that don't walk the walk. They won't see the field. We will play the guys that love football and love each other.” During his weekly conference call organized by the Colonial Athletic Association, Ambrose elaborated on that comment.

No. 10 Johns Hopkins unveiled a different look on defense in Saturday's 13-9 loss to No. 5 North Carolina when junior Michael Pellegrino shifted from the midfield to join senior Jack Reilly and junior Robert Enright on close defense and freshman Nick Fields started as long-stick midfielder. The impetus behind the move was to match Pellegrino's speed with that of Tar Heels junior attackman Joey Sankey, but it's not the first time the Blue Jays (5-3) have tinkered with their defensive personnel.

Juan Castillo endured awkward circumstances and heavy resistance to his blocking techniques and coaching methods during a rough season last year as the Ravens' run-game coordinator. Despite the challenging year, Castillo was named the Ravens' offensive line coach this season. That's why it didn't come as a surprise Thursday when Castillo repeatedly declined to elaborate on what went awry a year ago. "Well, I'd rather not talk about last year," Castillo said three times during his first interview since last year's training camp.

WASHINGTON -- Hoping to make a career in the military more enticing, the Pentagon yesterday proposed raises as large as 9.9 percent for mid-career officers and noncommissioned officers as part of a sweeping package that calls for the largest increases in military pay and pensions since 1982.President Clinton has already announced his intention to increase military salaries by 4.4 percent for all 1.4 million soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, starting in January 2000. But the Pentagon's proposal would earmark additional raises for those officers and enlisted personnel whose experience and training have made them highly sought after in the civilian marketplace and who the Pentagon says have been quitting the armed services in droves.

The National Security Agency, whose size, secrecy and mission were spawned by the Cold War, is in the midst of !B personnel changes that current and former employees warn are a threat to national security.In interviews and in federal lawsuits, NSA workers say some of the agency's most senior personnel are being forced out as the nation's biggest intelligence agency attempts simultaneously to reduce and diversify its staff.An uneasy atmosphere, some say, has fostered strife over promotions and job security at the elite electronic-eavesdropping agency.

The response to crises such as the 9/11 attacks, the Boston Marathon bombings or the landslide that collapsed a Baltimore street this spring inevitably elevate the public consciousness of the professionalism and courage of police, firefighters and other first responders. But sometimes a different kind of consciousness is raised. Corruption or lawless behavior by public-safety personnel - such as the shootings and looting by New Orleans police officers following Hurricane Katrina or, more recently, the police chokehold that killed an unarmed man on a Staten Island sidewalk, caught on video by members of the community - can undo all of that goodwill in a moment.

Now a new effort is underway - at the highest level of federal hiring - to address that disparity. "There is tremendous growth, as you know, in the Latino community, and we see more and more young people graduating from university, and I really want to tap into those numbers," said Katherine Archuleta, the director of the federal Office of Personnel Management.

Standing by a bench late in the Ravens' season finale, quarterback Joe Flacco frowned and shook his head in disgust. An errant pass intended for and thrown well behind wide receiver Torrey Smith had just landed in the hands of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, a missed connection returned for a touchdown in an eventual 34-17 loss that kept the Ravens from the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The interception, Flacco's franchise-record 22nd of the season, was a microcosm of his disappointing season, one in which he struggled mightily a year after being named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XLVII and signing a landmark six-year, $120.6 million contract.

Back in training camp, I wrote a story about how the Ravens had joined the growing trend in the NFL of using three-receiver sets . The Ravens used their 11 personnel -- one back, one tight end and three wide receivers -- on 43 percent of their snaps last season, up from 25 percent in 2011. Still, 22 teams used three-receiver sets more often, as 11 personnel was used on 51 percent of the NFL's plays last season. Their use of 11 personnel paid off in the playoffs, as eight of quarterback Joe Flacco's record-tying 11 postseason touchdown passes came when the Ravens had three wide receivers and a tight end on the field.

For 70 years, two reddish-colored 16-inch vinyl records rested undisturbed in a large cardboard box in the publisher's vault in the basement of The Baltimore Sun building. The box was shipped by Railway Express from the Newark Phonograph Record Co. in New Jersey to "WFBR, Radio Centre, Baltimore" and was covered with several labels: PLEASE RUSH. BROADCAST RECORDS. KEEP AWAY FROM HEAT. STAND ON EDGE. Further information on the box explained what they were. The two records, each 30 minutes long, were copies of a Dec. 25, 1943, Christmas broadcast that was sponsored by The Sunpapers.

The Baltimore County police department's personnel section was consolidated into a single county-wide office this week, a spokeswoman said. Five police department employees will move from police headquarters on Joppa Road to the Baltimore County human resources office on Allegheny Avenue in Towson, said county spokeswoman Lauren Byrd. One employee will be transferred to corrections. "It only made sense to consolidate locations. No positions will be cut, however, with time and attrition, the number of positions may become fewer," she said.
