-- From his prime vantage point Monday afternoon at Fairhope Stadium, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome could watch the kind of wide receiver he covets. The Ravens have identified a need for a reliable, versatile presence on third downs to complement the speed of Torrey Smith. All of those traits were on display as the Ravens evaluated players during the first day of Senior Bowl practice Monday. Among those players was Vanderbilt wide receiver Jordan Matthews, who showcased sharp routes and sound hands.

It should come as little surprise that No. 13 Vanderbilt seemed right at home in Sunday's women's lacrosse game against host Johns Hopkins. Fielding 13 players from Maryland, including 10 from the Baltimore area, the Commodores boasted more local talent than the Blue Jays and brought a large and vocal contingent to Homewood Field to drive the point home. In the end, they had plenty to cheer about. Vanderbilt rallied by opening the second half with seven of nine goals, taking the lead for good on a pair of unassisted scores by senior Katherine Denkler to hand Hopkins a 14-13 loss.

The record of the horse's trip reads: ". roughed at the first turn . eased back . raced wide . finished strongly, but could not overtake the winner, although probably best."The horse was Native Dancer. The race was the 1953 Kentucky Derby. In Native Dancer's extraordinary career at the racetrack -- that turned into an extraordinary career in the breeding shed -- Alfred G. Vanderbilt's gray colt won 20 of 21 starts, every one except that fateful Kentucky Derby.Now Vanderbilt, 84, owns a 2-year-old colt who perhaps allows the former owner of Baltimore County's Sagamore Farm to dream again about finally standing in the winner's circle after the world's most famous race.

When he was a Maryland quarterback, Chris Turner told a story of his phone once ringing at 4:34 in the morning. It was passionate, intense James Franklin - an amped-up electron of a football coach for whom sleep is apparently an overvalued commodity - calling to see if the player was awake and ready for a spring practice. "I don't think he sleeps, to tell you the truth," former Maryland receivers coach Lee Hull said Thursday of Franklin, the former Terps offensive coordinator who left for Vanderbilt in 2010 and, according to multiple reports, is now close to becoming Penn State's head coach.

— Todd Bozeman never stopped coaching, even when it was clear that his Morgan State basketball team wasn't going to beat Vanderbilt Saturday in the second-round loser's bracket game at the Paradise Jam. His Bears never stopped competing against their Southeastern Conference opponent. But as happened in all of Morgan State's previous five games this season, the game ended with more effort than efficiency in a 75-66 defeat for Bozeman's team. "We definitely played with effort, I told the guys that I don't have a problem with their effort," Bozeman said.

Because of a hazing incident, the Vanderbiltwomen's lacrosse team has withdrawn from the Navy Fall Invitational, where it was scheduled to play Oct. 13, according to a spokesperson in the school's athletic department. The Commodores were required by the department to miss one scheduled contest as a penalty. The sanction will not have an impact on Vanderbilt's 2013 season. Based on an internal departmental review, Vanderbilt determined its varsity women's tennis and women's lacrosse teams recently engaged in separate events that rise to the level of hazing.

The comments former Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin made about the criteria he uses in choosing his assistant coaches at Vanderbilt came as a surprise to me. I always thought Franklin, like a lot of college coaches, was a used car salesman, not a sexist. If you haven't heard, the second-year Vanderbilt coach was chatting up a Nashville radio talk show when the subject of assistant coaches came up. Instead of saying something like, “I took the best guys off Ralph Friedgen's staff and cost him his job,” Franklin said, “I've been saying for a long time, I will not hire an assistant until I've seen his wife.
