NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- On paper, Rep. Jim Cooper could not be better positioned to win a Senate seat here next November.Those who have followed his career say he always has been something of an overachiever. He has the right kind of background and record: The son of a former governor, he zipped through the University of North Carolina in three years, studied as a Rhodes scholar and went to Harvard Law School.He was elected to Congress in 1982 and established a reputation as a centrist Democrat but one willing to take some risks by, for example, opposing the flag-burning amendment.

When Keron DeShields committed to Montana in 2011, his goal was to get as far away from Baltimore as possible . But after three years of being 2,300 miles away, the former Pallotti and Towson Catholic guard said he's looking forward to closing out his college career at Tennessee State in Nashville, where he'll be able to make a much shorter trip home. “It took me from Montana probably all day on the plane just to get home,” said DeShields, who signed with the Tigers earlier this month.

COLLEGE PARK - The crutches that came to symbolize last season have long since been stored away, and the three Maryland women's basketball players no longer need to run up and down the Comcast Center stairs to work their way back from knee surgeries while their depleted team practices on the court below. Maryland somehow made it to the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16 in 2013 despite losing guards Laurin Mincy and Brene Moseley and center Essence Townsend to anterior cruciate ligament tears, and forward Tierney Pfirman to a dislocated kneecap and mononucleosis.

Opponents of Maryland's gun laws are falling all over themselves to offer I-told-you-sos after the gun manufacturer Beretta announced it would be building a new plant in Tennessee rather than Maryland. Beretta had warned the state that this would happen before the law was enacted last year, and officials there are making the connection between their decision and gun control, saying they only looked for states with "a consistent history of support for and likelihood of future support for Second Amendment rights.

Gun manufacturer Beretta USA announced Wednesday it would build its newest plant not in Maryland, but in Tennessee. Last year, the centuries-old Italian gun-maker threatened to abandon plans to expand its U.S. headquarters in Prince George's County when Maryland weighed some of the toughest gun laws in the country. At least eight states began trying to woo Maryland gun manufacturers last year. When state lawmakers approved a ban on the sale of assault-style rifles - some of which Beretta had been developing at its Accokeek plant - the company said it would look elsewhere for its next $45-million, 300-job plant.

Middle Tennessee State linebacker Roderic Blunt issued a public apology Tuesday for his role in an incident during Navy's 24-6 win Monday in the Armed Forces Bowl in which Blunt was seen reaching into Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' face mask after he was down and poking his eye. Blunt, who was not penalized after the third-quater play, was later ejected after his second of two unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties. Reynolds missed three plays while Navy staffers installed an emergency visor on his face mask.
