Top-ranked Gilman stepped onto the Morgan State turf Friday night intent on taking its next step onto the national stage. Instead, the top-ranked Greyhounds simply couldn't keep stride with consensus national champion Don Bosco Prep and bruising running back Paul Canevari. Canevari, starting his first game on offense after switching from defensive end, mauled the Greyhounds for 321 yards on 22 carries, as the New Jersey-power handed Gilman a humbling 33-6 loss. Only a late touchdown by backup quarterback Max Greene kept Gilman from its first shutout in three years.

Perhaps a change of scenery will help. The stalled baseball negotiations are scheduled to resume today at a resort hotel outside New York, but there still is little reason to expect that special mediator William J. Usery can break the collective bargaining deadlock that cut short the 1994 season.The owners apparently don't think so. They have begun a public relations campaign that could be the prelude to unilateral implementation of their salary cap proposal.The union appears just as skeptical, and why not?

The Miami Northwestern Bulls answered a ton of questions Saturday night in an early-season nationally televised high school football showdown against Southlake Carroll of suburban Dallas. The Bulls, who held on to win a 29-21 thriller, overcame their best receiver suffering a bruised heel, a hostile crowd of more than 31,000 and the hype of a meeting between the country's presumed two best teams to end Carroll's 49-game winning streak. While the game's outcome supposedly answered whatever questions might have existed about who is the nation's No. 1 high school football team, there's still one question left to be answered, and it's a big one. Why, exactly, was this game played in the first place?

In the final weeks of 2004, I've spent many hours talking with readers who criticized and questioned recent changes and cuts in the Today and Business sections of The Sun. It is a large part of a public editor's responsibility to be a visible source of information and a mediator between readers and the newspaper. Editors at The Sun heard the recent flood of reader feedback loud and clear. They are still assessing what they might do about it. As 2005 begins, they know that readers are, more than ever, examining, complaining, praising and demanding explanations about the priorities and credibility of The Sun and other newspapers.

Timothy E. Parker lives a puzzled life. But he does it on purpose. In fact, he enjoys making brainteasers for the millions of people who attempt to solve the crossword puzzles he designs for newspapers nationwide, including The Sun and USA Today. And recently, Parker published a book of games and puzzles directed at a new audience -- those seeking to learn more about the Holy Bible. King James Games -- a compilation of more than 200 Bible-based puzzles -- hit stores in February. "It's about 350 pages, and as you solve the puzzle, it teaches you the Bible," says Parker, who is an associate pastor at Tabernacle of Deliverance Christian Center in Baltimore.

I joined Christine Brennan, of "USA Today," and Howard Kurtz on "Media Buzz" today to talk about TMZ and the performance of mainstream media in covering -- or not covering -- the Ray Rice story. I was at first surpised to hear Brennan, who knows this turf as well as anyone, say an argument could be made that it is "the biggest controversy to ever hit a U.S. sports league. " But having thought about it since, I think she could be right. #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

The most important six hours of recent American history will start to unfold on Monday. That day, the Supreme Court begins three days of oral argument on the legal challenge to President Barack Obama's health care reform law ("Obamacare"). The Court's decision will have a profound impact on the quality of American health care. The political repercussions will be equally strong: The decision will either reinvigorate an Obama campaign looking to make good on its signature legislative initiative or fuel a united Republican counterattack along the lines of, "We told you so. " Casual observers may not realize there are 26 states and one business organization (The National Federation of Independent Business)

When one writes about moral convictions, it's probably a good idea to consistently live up to them. That way people can still disagree with your convictions, but they have a difficult time accusing you of hypocrisy. Last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, I failed to live up to one of my highest principles. Here's the background. The story about the Obama administration's attempt to force Catholic and other faith-based institutions to offer employees free contraception in their health care coverage was still fresh.

Here's a look at recent media coverage of the Ravens. • The Indianapolis Star's Bob Kravitz notes the absence of the Indianapolis Colts' name during games at M&T Bank Stadium . His column continues with the difficulties that the Colts will encounter with the Ravens on Saturday night. I mention this because, in a shocking lack of professional courtesy and maturity, the Ravens' stadium operations folks refuse to introduce the Indianapolis Colts on game day at M&T Stadium as "the Indianapolis Colts," and on the scoreboard, use "Indy" rather than "Colts."

Gilman defensive tackle Henry Poggi is one of only 24 high school players nationwide to be named Thursday to USA Today's All-USA Football Team . Poggi, one of The Baltimore Sun's Co-Defensive Players of the Year, was the most schemed against player his father Biff Poggi had ever coached in the elder Poggi's 16 seasons as Greyhounds coach. Henry Poggi drew at least double-team coverage in every game as the No. 1 Greyhounds went 9-2 and won their second straight Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship.
