For eight consecutive seasons, Navy has played in a bowl, a point of pride for a program filled with pride. Just two weeks ago, that streak seemed doomed as the Midshipmen plummeted to the depths of a six-game losing streak. Even last week's big win over overmatched Troy didn't make a ninth consecutive bowl bid appear likely. But Saturday, the Mids put the bid back in play. Running with power and poise, Navy trampled one of the nation's best rushing defenses, rumbling for 335 yards on the ground — while gaining none through the air — on the way to a 24-17 upset of SMU at Ford Stadium.

Within the first 15 minutes of his job interview with Towson president Maravene Loeschke, Tim Leonard knew two things: he wanted to be the university's next athletic director, and the school felt the same way about him. "It was just this sense, it was like a sixth sense that came over me," Leonard said, eliciting laughter from an audience that had gathered at Johnny Unitas Stadium for his introductory news conference Friday morning. "I knew it was right. " Loeschke was similarly enthusiastic about Leonard, saying, "It is very clear to all of us that we have a champion who is going to help us make champions.

There was more to SMU's 21-10 victory over then-No. 22 TCU last week than it being the first win over a ranked team for the Mustangs in 19 years, and the biggest since Phil Bennett arrived on the SMU campus after the 2001 season. "I'm one of the few that will say it: They've stuck their nose up at us for a long time," said Bennett, a former TCU assistant. "About six years they didn't want to be associated with us. This was a pride factor, not just for the football team, but this whole university."

Towson announced Thursday afternoon that the university has hired Tim Leonard as athletic director. Leonard, who will be introduced Friday at 11 a.m. in the Minnegan Room at Johnny Unitas Stadium, comes from Southern Methodist University, where he is a senior associate athletic director for external affairs. With the Mustangs, Leonard was in charge of fundraising and sales and was the institution's interim athletic director between May and August 2012. “We are very excited to have someone of Tim Leonard's caliber joining our team here at Towson University,” school president Maravene Loeschke said in a written statement. “He is a professional administrator with 21 years of experience in intercollegiate athletics.

Stephen Woods had a game-high 27 points as Southern Methodist defeated Navy, 87-78, last night in a non-conference men's basketball in Dallas. Woods made six-of-seven three-pointers and was one of four Mustangs (11-1) to score in double figures. Sitapha Savane led Navy (5-4) with 26 points and 13 rebounds. SMU led 41-40 at halftime but extended the lead by making four of seven three-pointers and converting 12-of-18 free throws in the second half. Pub Date: 12/24/99

Many events conspired against the Navy men's basketball team yesterday in its 68-54 loss to Southern Methodist at Alumni Hall. Where to begin? Again, try right from the start. For the third consecutive game, the Mids (2-9) fell behind by double digits in the opening half, and against upstart Southern Methodist (6-3), coming off an upset of Purdue 10 days earlier, the deficit proved too formidable. The frustration over the slow starts is building. Rice breezed to an 81-55 victory over Navy on Dec. 22, only after the Owls used a 14-0 run to break a 14-14 tie. And then on Saturday, the Mids fell behind 16-3 to Mount St. Mary's, which hung on to beat them at the buzzer, 54-53, on a jumper by Landy Thompson.

In the four seasons senior center Curtis Bass has spent at Navy, the Midshipmen have played in 12 states and the District of Columbia. But this two-week stretch is special for the Texas native. Bass had more than 50 family members and friends in the stands at Rice Stadium on Oct. 10 to watch Navy's 63-14 victory over the Owls in Houston, and he was expecting to have nearly as many Saturday night in Dallas when the Midshipmen (4-2) faced Southern Methodist (3-2). "We get to travel so much," said Bass, who is from Pearland, just outside Houston.

No love lost in Texas David Teel Daily Press A democracy that has given us Sen. Al Franken and Gov. Terminator surely is capable of producing Sen. Craig James. But I'd sooner vote for Lee "Don't forget the 7-second delay" Corso. The beauty of James' folly is he's running in his native Texas. Sure, he starred there at SMU, but that outlaw era earned the program the NCAA's only death penalty. More than two decades later, James' ESPN-enabled crusade helped take down Texas Tech coach Mike Leach.

Parrish Gaines knew what to expect when he went into Navy's defensive team meeting Monday at Ricketts Hall. Making his second straight start in the team's 42-14 victory over Troy Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, the freshman cornerback forced an early fumble and tied a career-high with seven tackles, but he had the same feeling as after the previous six games - all of them losses. "I still go into film [session] nervous, because when you watch film it's a totally different thing," Gaines said.

It's never over until it's over. Arkansas and Illinois rallied from double-digit deficits for exciting wins over Texas A&M and Northwestern, respectively. Navy and TCU also had big rallies but fell short in overtime. The Luke Fickell Era may be a footnote in Ohio State history. At 3-2 and with an offense that looks like it couldn't score against a JV squad, the Buckeyes have plenty of problems. Throw in games against Nebraska, Illinois and Wisconsin this month and that could spell trouble for the first-year coach.
