COLLEGE PARK -- By all rights, the Toledo women's basketball team should be approaching tonight's NCAA tournament second-round encounter with eighth-ranked Maryland with a bit of fear.After all, the Terps, not the Rockets, spent four weeks this season at No. 1 and are the second seed in the Mideast Regional.And the game will be played at Cole Field House, where, just five weeks ago, more than 14,500 showed up to watch Maryland challenge Virginia, and where the Terps are undefeated in five previous NCAA tournament games.

TOLEDO, Ohio -- Navy's road to its first winning season since 1982 will begin today at the University of Toledo, where the Midshipmen hope to play the role of a party crasher.It's "Dedication Day" for Toledo's Glass Bowl Stadium, which underwent an $18 million renovation during the off-season, and a capacity crowd of 26,000 is expected. The Rockets (8-1) will be attempting to cap the dedication ceremony with a victory that would extend their 14-game home winning streak."You know they'll be emotional, and you know they will be high with the winning streak and the dedication," said Navy coach George Chaump, whose team needs to win its last three games to finish 6-5.

While waiting for tomorrow's 4:30 p.m. kickoff in Toledo's Glass Bowl against the tough 8-1 Rockets, here are some afterthoughts of Navy's classic rebound against national leader Notre Dame.Agreed, a "moral" victory plus a quarter are worth about a 25-cent telephone call. However, the extraordinary effort of the Navy football team and the coaching staff in battling a technically and physically far superior (and 34-point favorite) Notre Dame squad last week gave Middie supporters hope for better things to come.

TOLEDO, Ohio - DaimlerChrysler AG's workers in Toledo, Ohio, are to decide Tuesday whether to authorize a strike that would halt output of the new Jeep Liberty, Chrysler's No. 2 selling sport utility vehicle. The United Auto Workers union is concerned about safety issues because of increased overtime at the plant that builds the Liberty, said Nick Vuick, chairman of UAW Local 12. The union wants Chrysler to replace the overtime with a third shift, which would bring back laid-off workers, Vuick said.

Noah Copeland and Chris Swain were stretching together during a practice early last week when Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo approached his top two fullbacks with a little pep talk. "Coach Niumat kind of called us out, told us we need to show up," Copeland recalled this week. "We kind of talked about that in the hotel [on Friday before facing Toledo], that we need to ball this game, and they're going to probably need us. We went out there with a different mentality. We just kept running and doing what we could do. " By the time Copeland and Swain were finished, they had combined for more yards in a game than any pair of Navy fullbacks in three seasons.

Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo reminded his players after a practice this week that they are not like other college football teams that can simply show up and win on sheer talent alone. "We're not like Alabama or LSU," he said. As Navy (3-2) heads to Toledo (3-3) Saturday after one of its more one-sided losses in Niumatalolo's six years as head coach, the Midshipmen need to resemble the team that beat Indiana and Delaware to start the 2013 season, as well as the one that dominated academy rival Air Force in the second half.

In what Niumatalolo described Monday as Navy's most disappointing defeat "in a long time," the Midshipmen were blown out by the Blue Devils, 35-7, after a scoreless first quarter. "We got our butts whipped from Notre Dame in Ireland [last year], but they have a few first-round draft picks," Niumatalolo said after practice in Annapolis.

The Browns were born in 1946, the year after the end of World War II. Veterans were returning home, and what did the Browns do but play for a championship 10 years in a row - four in the All-American Conference and six in the NFL. This was unprecedented and gave birth to a fervent fan base. Along came Art Modell and he fired one of the greatest coaches in NFL history. Then there was the little episode of Mr. Modell suing a group of local bar owners because they bought rotor antennas and could get blacked-out home games from Toledo.

THE CLEANEST election in years gives crisis-ravaged Peru the democratic new start it desperately needs. Alejandro Toledo looks like a 15th century Inca ruler. As a boy he shined shoes to help his large family. Then he earned a doctorate at Stanford and became a World Bank economist. Then he ran for president against the elected dictator, Alberto Fujimori, and quit the runoff crying fraud, which was probably true. A year later, and seven months after Mr. Fujimori fled to Japan, leaving his corrupt enforcer, Vladimiro Montesinos, a fugitive, Mr. Toledo tried again.
