The curiosity about Bobby Rainey in Baltimore built steadily throughout August. First Ravens head coach John Harbaugh singled him out for praise early in training camp. Then Rainey scored a highlight-reel touchdown in his first preseason game. Soon, diehard Ravens fans were asking reporters, “Who is Bobby Rainey?” But down in Bowling Green, Ky., the home of Western Kentucky University, the Ravens' diminutive rookie running back was the big man on campus. Rainey rushed for more than 1,600 yards in each of junior and senior years -- making him the eighth FBS back since 2000 to post consecutive 1,500-yard seasons -- and scored 32 total touchdowns in his final two years.

Buddy Green spent a total of four days at Anne Arundel Medical Center getting treatment for an undisclosed ailment. When the veteran defensive coordinator returned to Navy football practice Wednesday, it was suggested that spending too much time watching Western Kentucky's prolific offense prompted Green to hurry back to work. "Actually, watching Western Kentucky will put you back in the hospital," Green quipped. First-year coach Jeff Brohm has installed a pass-happy Hilltoppers attack that piles up yards and points at a rapid rate.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- About a month ago, a betting person wouldn't have gotten very good odds that the Maryland women's basketball team would reach the Final Four.The Terps still may not, but their chances improved greatly last night. That's based as much on what Western Kentucky did to defending champion Tennessee as it is to what the Terps did to Purdue here at Mackey Arena.Maryland turned back a spirited effort by the Boilermakers, 64-58, to advance to the Mideast Regional championship against Western Kentucky, a 75-70 upset winner over Tennessee.

Quarterback Ricky Dobbs recovered nicely from last week's poor showing against Pittsburgh, leading Navy to a 38-22 victory over Western Kentucky in front of 29,009 on the 50th anniversary of the first game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. He had a hand in all five Navy touchdowns and reached at least 100 yards in both rushing and passing. "I thought Ricky did some great things," Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said. "That's the nature of being a quarterback. When things are going good, he gets a lot of the credit, and deservedly so. When things go bad, he gets a lot of the [blame]

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo had a number of concerns going into the 2011 season, but depth at slotback wasn't one of them. While none of those playing one of the key skill positions for the Midshipmen in their triple-option offense was an established star, several had moments when they stood out. The depth chart changed last week in a 40-14 win at Western Kentucky, though the mindset about slotback remains the same as Navy (2-0) prepares for its trip to play 11th-ranked South Carolina (2-0)

Morgan State's defense was solid against the run last season, a middle-of-the-road unit that finished 78th nationally after allowing an average of 177.7 yards in 2012. This year's unit, however, has strayed from that path. The Bears are surrendering 303.0 rushing yards per game this fall, which ranks 115th among 122 teams in the Football Championship Subdivision. Sixteen of their opponents' 20 touchdowns have been running scores. “We continue to look at it - from scheme to personnel,” coach Donald Hill-Eley said Tuesday during a conference call.

When Aaron Santiago fell awkwardly and broke his left arm in two places in a 40-14 win at Western Kentucky on Sept. 10, some thought the senior slotback might have played his last game for Navy. When Kriss Proctor felt his left elbow pop out of place for the second time this season two weeks ago against East Carolina, the senior quarterback looked like he was done for awhile, too. Both were at practice Monday in Annapolis and both are expected to play Saturday on Senior Day when Navy (2-6)

Coach Ken Niumatalolo was not all smiles after Navy's 40-14 win over Western Kentucky at Houchens-Smith Stadium on Saturday night. In fact, he was in tears. Late in the second quarter, his senior slotback Aaron Santiago went down with an arm injury on his last carry and would not return to the game. "He is going to be out for a while," Niumatalolo said. "A great, great kid. I'm going to be honest with you, I was kind of in a daze in the second half. Our team was playing great, but to lose one of your guys like that, who has just been a phenomenal human being, it is hard to see that.
