If the Ravens are playing this weekend, you can bet there is someone somewhere wondering if offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is coaching for his job. And maybe he is. Cameron has been a popular punching bag when things haven't gone well this season. He was caught for a time in the middle of a tug-of-war between quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice to determine the identity of the Ravens offense. He is an easy target for criticism when that offense stalls because, well, he's the guy with the car keys.

At the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, when the Clinton administration was consumed with damage control, a White House aide reached out to Maryland Gov. Parris N. Glendening and asked the fellow Democrat to back off his criticism of the president, according to a trove of documents released Friday by the Clinton Presidential Library. President Bill Clinton's former director of intergovernmental affairs, Mickey Ibarra, wrote in a Sept. 7, 1998, memo that he spoke to Glendening the day before and "delivered our message (it does not help any of us to pile on)

Goucher got its first NCAA tournament win in program history, edging Washington, 5-4, in a first-round contest Wednesday afternoon. And the Gophers' reward? A second-round date with South Region No. 1 seed Salisbury this Saturday. Goucher is 18-1 and riding a 15-game winning streak, but senior attackman Rory Averett said he thinks the pressure is on the nine-time reigning national champion Sea Gulls (19-0). “They are an incredible team, but I do think it's on them,” Averett said after Wednesday's victory.

The root cause of undocumented immigration, whether from Mexico or Central America, is the poverty and lack of economic opportunity that have afflicted those nations as a result of failed economic policies - including their trade agreements with the United States. Those thousands of migrants - including unaccompanied minors - arriving at our border are not criminals trying to break the law. They are a warning sign that the collateral damage of so-called "free trade" agreements cannot always be found in closed factories and shuttered Main Street businesses in the United States.

Prior to Saturday, No. 10 North Carolina had yet to string together two consecutive wins in 2013 and was just one game above .500 heading into a pivotal road contest against top-ranked and Atlantic Coast Conference foe Maryland. But that didn't prevent the Tar Heels from pulling off one of the biggest upsets of the season as they tagged the Terps with their first loss of the year in a 10-8 victory at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Maryland (6-1) may have been the team with all of the accolades and the momentum, but it also had all of the pressure, according to North Carolina senior attackman Marcus Holman.

NEW YORK -- Chris Davis is becoming the popular pick to win tonight's Home Run Derby, but the Orioles' first baseman says that doesn't add any pressure. "I dont think there is any pressure on me to win," he said Monday afternoon. "Like everybody else, I just want to put on a good show. And I want the fans to have a really good time and enjoy it. We played here [at Citi Field] last year, and I dont really remember it very much. It was just a three-game series. But like Robinson [Cano]

Last season was considered a breakout year for John Ranagan, who established himself as one of Johns Hopkins' dangerous initiators from the midfield. The then-sophomore racked up 11 goals and nine assists in the team's first nine games. But opponents got wiser in the latter half of the season, shadowing Ranagan with long-stick midfielders who limited him to seven goals and five assists in his final seven games. Ranagan's linemates did what they could with mixed results. Then-sophomore John Greeley recorded seven goals and four assists in the team's last seven games, but then-freshman Rob Guida managed just four goals and zero assists over that same span.

Cam Cameron walked off the practice field and made a right turn into the thicket of TV cameras, digital recorders and notepads awaiting him. There have been times at these media sessions when the Ravens' offensive coordinator wore the look of a man who has just had a brick thrown through his car windshield. But on this sunny August afternoon, he seemed relaxed and confident the day before the Ravens flew to St. Louis for their final preseason game against the Rams tonight. “What'ya got?

Ravens rookie free safety Terrence Brooks chased Robert Griffin III toward the right sideline on the Washington Redskins' first drive in the first quarter. Brooks accelerated as he pursued Griffin and fought through a stiff-arm attempt to shove the quarterback out of bounds for a sack and a loss of 4 yards. "RGIII tried to outrun me, he tried to stiff-arm me, and I take a lot of pride on playing fast and not letting anyone do that to me," Brooks said. "I wasn't even paying attention to who it was. I know what type of player he is, but you can't get caught up in names like that.

TORONTO -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said there will be some pressure to perform well against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, when 23 Orioles Hall of Famers will be in attendance for the franchise's 60th anniversary ceremony after the game. “It's going to be some event, probably the highest pressure game for us for the year. We really need to win tomorrow,” Showalter said. “We've already talked to the players. That's a very easy [talk]. It's after the game. I hope it's not a long game, and I hope it's not extra innings.

The new Baltimore schools CEO, Gregory Thornton, starts work Tuesday. And regardless of the outside temperature, he'll be on a hot seat from day one. The challenges facing any urban school district superintendent are super-daunting. In Baltimore, expectations are high in the wake of the reform style and exceptional accomplishments of prior CEO Andrés A. Alonso. Moreover, Mr. Thornton's first-day assignments are a heavy load. To name just a few: budget shortfalls; the $1 billion school construction program; fiscal and authority disputes with charter schools; the controversial teacher evaluation system; and perhaps most fateful, implementation of the rigorous Common Core academic standards and tests.

Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala appears to be cool while the whirlwind blows around him. A year ago, the Blue Jays failed to make the NCAA tournament for the first time in 41 years, and they are on the verge of being left out again if they don't get another big win in their final five games. That might be impossible for the Blue Jays faithful to bear. Lacrosse to Hopkins is what football is to Notre Dame and basketball to Kentucky. Lacrosse isn't just a sport at Hopkins, it's the sport.

The Obama administration is showing it can be tough on foreign policy. Unfortunately, that toughness is not directed at Russia and its incursion into Crimea, but at Israel, America's ally. In an interview with President Obama, prior to the Washington arrival of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Jeffrey Goldberg of Bloomberg.com writes that the president planned to tell Mr. Netanyahu "that his country could face a bleak future -- one of international isolation and demographic disaster -- if he refuses to endorse a U.S.-drafted framework agreement for peace with the Palestinians.

Q. I am a 70-year-old, healthy woman (still doing kick-boxing and aerobics). However, I sustain ugly bruises, especially on my hands and arms. I take Cozaar, verapamil and Estratab. I also take rutin, which is supposed to help the bruising, though it does not seem to make much difference. Do you have any suggestions? A. We are impressed with your activity. If you are blocking a partner's kicks with your hands and arms, are you wearing protective pads? That might be the first step to take to prevent bruises.

Kelly, who had spent the previous five years as the team's top offensive assistant, now has the unenviable task of taking over a squad that won four consecutive Landmark Conference regular-season titles and two of the last three league tournament championships and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament last season under Hannan, who was 121-79 in...

Attorneys for a Naval Academy midshipman accused of sexually assaulting a classmate argued Monday that the academy's superintendent was pressured to prosecute the case — one of several claims the legal team is making in an effort to have the case dismissed. Midshipman Joshua Tate is awaiting trial on charges of aggravated sexual assault and making false statements, stemming from an alleged assault at an April 2012 off-campus party. The case has gained national attention, and at a motions hearing in military court at the Washington Navy Yard, Tate's attorneys said academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Michael H. Miller was influenced by military and political pressure when he made the decision to prosecute the midshipman.

In the time that Joe Breschi left Ohio State to assume the head coaching reins at North Carolina after the 2008 season, the program is 5-for-5 in NCAA tournament appearances and has advanced to the quarterfinal round three times. But for a school that captured national championships in 1981, 1982, 1986 and 1991, those results have left alumni and fans wanting more. With the Tar Heels generally considered among the top three teams in Division I leading up to the 2014 season, the expectation is that this year's squad could finally reach the promised land of championship weekend at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Memorial Day weekend.
