Morgan State's quest for a third consecutive winning football season has become a little more difficult with the addition of Division I-A San Jose State to the schedule. The Spartans from the Western Athletic Conference will entertain the Bears on Sept. 18 at 8 p.m., replacing I-AA Towson University on the Morgan schedule. "It's a wonderful opportunity for our program," said Morgan athletic director Dave Thomas. "We began talking to San Jose in January, and the game just recently became official."

Ciena Corp., a locally based maker of telecommunications-networking gear, said yesterday that it will shut down its San Jose, Calif., engineering facility on Sept. 30, a move that will save millions while costing 425 workers their jobs. The company will shift the product-development work from San Jose to its other facilities. Some employees - fewer than 100 - might relocate to Ciena's facility in Linthicum, the company said. Chief Executive Officer Gary Smith said the decision to cut jobs was "difficult," but he added that the resultant cost savings "make it a necessary step in the process of restoring Ciena's profitability."

WASHINGTON - Professional hockey players are naturally positive people. That's what retired Washington Capitals captain Dale Hunter used to say. And last night, the Capitals seemed to prove it. They are in a down-to-the-wire battle for a playoff spot in the NHL postseason. They need wins, and on a night when they lose, they hope the Carolina Hurricanes, whom they're chasing for the Southeast Division title, loses, too. Last night, the Capitals lost to the San Jose Sharks, 5-2, and Carolina won, stretching its division lead back to eight points.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - It has been raining cats and dogs here for two days, and people here are glad. Maybe this means it will finally stop raining pigs. "The hope is that the pigs will head back to the hills," said Lindsey Wolf, who lives in California Maison, a condominium development at the south end of town. "Now that we have rain, people are waiting it out and hoping for the best." For the past few months, the condominiums and nearby neighborhoods have been under siege by marauding wild pigs.

When you think cyber-savvy cities, the wired streets of San Francisco no doubt leap to mind. Or perhaps San Jose, the birthplace of Silicon Valley.But don't forget Baltimore.That's right -- we have seen the geeks and they are us. A new survey of the nation's metropolitan areas named Baltimore the 20th most plugged-in city in the country as it surged ahead of larger cities such as Philadelphia, Houston and Los Angeles. The survey appears in the March issue of Yahoo! Internet Life, which hit newsstands last week.

Buddy Green, the defensive coordinator for Navy's football team, has a steadfast policy of refraining from publicly assessing any unit of the defense until season's end. "Ask me on Dec. 31," he said when approached about the development of the pass defense. Junior free safety Parrish Gaines, however, does not share his coach's reservations. "We're getting better week by week," said Gaines, who shifted from cornerback in the team's victory over Pittsburgh on Oct. 26. "We still have guys in new positions.

In the not-too-distant future, Navy will meet archrival Army in the latest installment of arguably college football's greatest rivalry at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field on Dec. 14. But before the Midshipmen (6-4) can begin focusing on preparing for their most contentious foe, they still have the matter of a nationally televised game Friday night at San Jose State (5-5). The two sides have met just twice, but the Spartans won both meetings, in 2011 and 2012. And they need just one more victory to become bowl-eligible.

For most of Ken Niumatalolo's first four years as coach at Navy, the references to the past were nearly all positive reminders of how the program had kept up the standard set by his mentor and predecessor, Paul Johnson. Even last year, when Niumatalolo suffered his first losing season and Navy had its first losing record in nine years, there seemed to be a feeling that the Midshipmen weren't very far off, with five of the seven losses coming by a total of 11 points. This season is different - a painful flashback to what Navy football was like when Johnson first arrived in 2002.

Plenty of Navy football players experience the same trepidation whether they go first to the academy's prep school or arrive directly in Annapolis from high school. They are often homesick, missing their friends, family and former teammates. They are usually overmatched on the field. Freshman cornerback Quincy Adams had little in the way of that kind of stressful transition. Adams spent last year at the Naval Academy Preparatory School with two former teammates from San Antonio's Louis D. Brandeis High, and joined another former teammate once he and the others arrived as plebes in Annapolis this summer.
