North Carroll coach Phil Bonnell, who led the Panthers to state titles in 1990 and 1991, made believers out of a lot of people last season when he turned what was supposed to be a rebuilding team into a championship-caliber one.This season, he guided a young team to a region title and another state playoff appearance.The Panthers started 1-3 in 1992, but regrouped to defend their county and Central Maryland Conference crowns and to win a fourth straight region title.This year's team had only four starters back.

Report: 49ers' Singletary to get multi-year offer nfl San Francisco 49ers officials plan on removing the interim label from coach Mike Singletary and offering him a multi-year contract, according to a Sacramento Bee source. The offer likely will be made immediately after the team's season finale Sunday against the Washington Redskins. The Rooney Rule prevents teams from signing interim coaches to new deals during the season. Because Singletary, a former Ravens assistant, is a minority, however, the 49ers do not have to go through a formal interview process at season's end. When he was hired in October, Singletary asked owner Jed York what he would need to do to keep the job for 2009.

CHICAGO -- It will take $36 million to keep Michael Jordan with the Chicago Bulls for the next two seasons, and not a nickel less."That's it, and that's the absolute bottom figure," Jordan said last night after the Bulls routed the Orlando Magic, 121-83."

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A couple of months ago, Ricky Rudd was so frustrated by the way his season was going and by the way the youth movement was overwhelming the Winston Cup Series, he threatened to retire at the end of this season. After a month of solid runs and a victory at the Dodge/Save Mart 350 in Sonoma, Calif., two weeks ago, he is rethinking the word "retirement." "I wouldn't rule it out, but, I'd say, it's not my No. 1 priority," he said yesterday as thunderstorms rolled over Daytona International Speedway, forcing the postponement of qualifying for tomorrow's Pepsi 400 until 10 a.m. today.

Today it's difficult to hear that Dave Trembley will return next year as Orioles manager and view it as anything but good news. He has curried favor in the clubhouse, not as a pandering politician, but rather as a leader who preaches discipline, believes in communication and tries to take care of every player on his roster. The fruits of his efforts are easy to quantify. A team that was 29-40 when Trembley took over has gone 29-25 with him as manager. No, it's difficult today to view this as anything but good news.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Beyond universal acknowledgment of the precocious right-hander's gifts, the Orioles' take on Sidney Ponson remains somewhat mixed. Cocky party boy or talented, outgoing kid simply enjoying single life? Resistant to instruction or merely a bad fit with exiled pitching coach Bruce Kison? Were his September struggles a byproduct of never having pitched more than 107 innings in a season before 1998 or the predictable fallout of poor conditioning? As they unwrap spring training, the Orioles and Ponson have attempted to remove any obstacles standing before a prodigy who gained 20 major-league victories before his 23rd birthday.

The latest revelations have been sheer horror. Pain, Futility, Failure, Disgrace - the Four Horsemen of the O's Collapse - galloping their way through September, showing no signs of relenting, no hints of mercy. Fourteen days have passed since the Orioles named Dave Trembley permanent manager. That means 13 days have passed since I've heard the Earl Weaver Defense, which was excitedly bandied about for several hours before being forced into early retirement. I actually like the Weaver Defense and certainly appreciate the similarities shared by Weaver and Trembley.

ASHBURN, Va. -- For the first five years of his career in the NFL, Washington Redskins offensive tackle Chris Samuels had left the team's practice facility with equal amounts of dejection and disappointment at season's end. Yesterday, however, was markedly different for the sixth-year player. Washington's bid for its first NFC championship game appearance since the 1991 season was denied by the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, but Redskins players and fans had plenty to savor. Four more regular-season wins than in 2004.

As the Orioles near the end of the most tumultuous season in their storied history, club major- ity owner Peter G. Angelos said he is looking to the future while contemplating how a promising season unraveled so completely. "It was very disappointing obviously and, in many senses a calamity of problems that were totally unexpected," Angelos said yesterday while publicly assessing the season for the first time. Angelos declined to call 2005 - which included 62 days in first place, a steroids controversy involving star first baseman Rafael Palmeiro, the drunken-driving charges against projected team ace Sidney Ponson and the firing of manager Lee Mazzilli - the franchise's worst season.

The Dec. 18 game between the two East Baltimore rivals features two teams that suffered significant losses to injury last season but should be fully loaded for an intense pre-Christmas showdown at IND. Each team returns two exceptional players as well as an amazing amount of depth.

The problem with the written word is it has a way of sticking around . . . and around. A broadcaster says something and, whoosh, it's gone. Write something and someone with a pair of scissors clips it and waits . . .Maybe you saw "The Quote" in The Sun earlier this week: "The North Stars," wrote Minneapolis sports columnist Pat Reusse, "and the National Hockey League are finished in Minnesota."The North Stars, be reminded, start a best-of-seven series for the Stanley Cup against the Penguins in Pittsburgh tonight and they're going bonkers in the Twin Cities.
