With a 28-7 victory over Arundel (1-5) on Friday night, the Chesapeake Cougars evened their overall football record at 3-3 and put themselves in position for the first winning season in Tom Kraning's 13 years as coach. Three of the four games left on the Cougars' schedule are winnable: No. 9 Old Mill (5-1), Severna Park (2-4), South River (0-6) and neighborhood rival Northeast (4-2). A 6-4 record would equal the only winning season in the 24 years of Cougars football, set in 1985 under Denis Schanberger.

Confidence is building at Northeast for the Pasadena school's football team after its 2-0 start. When coach Mike Cotham called the Eagles' 13-12 victory at No. 12 Liberty (1-1) Monday night their "biggest win since 1988," it didn't take a genius to read his meaning. While it was a big win with workhorse Joe Brockmeyer (6-2, 210) carrying 42 times for 164 yards, it just so happens that 1988 was the last year that the Eagles had a winning season when they went 7-3 Cotham, who was an assistant to Bart Rader that season, is preparing his team to play host to Fallston tomorrow night at 7:15, and is confident the Eagles can win another one. After the 1988 season, the Eagles' best record under Rader who would retire after the 1996 campaign with a 60-80 career record in 14 seasons, they were 5-5 in 1991 and his final year.

Hope springs eternal in the hearts of true baseball fans. With the start of the Orioles' 2003 season just days away, some loyal fans are asking themselves, "Why not? Why can't the Orioles rebound after five consecutive losing seasons? Why can't this be the season our boys of summer come up winners again?" In fact, some of these fans, whom we found in Baltimore and beyond, feel it to their orange-and-black core that the Orioles will take wing and rise above the magic .500 mark this year.

If you heard the increased volume of the "Beat Army" yell in the Mid cheering sections after the singing of "Navy Blue and Gold" last Saturday following the win over Delaware, you certainly would know that the BIG game is coming up next.Attempting to add to the significance of the Army game on Dec. 8 in Philadelphia would be futile. It's all been -- and is being -- said as to the stature of this clash and its place in the minds of football enthusiasts everywhere.The names change year in and year out but the spectacle lives on. Forget the frantic bowl picture on that one Saturday afternoon, there's only one Army-Navy from coast to coast and beyond.

COLLEGE PARK - Soon after Maryland football coach Ron Vanderlinden stepped to the podium yesterday, he started talking about how the Terps' offense was first in rushing in the Atlantic Coast Conference last year. And how they scored 30 or more points in five games and finished first in the conference in fewest sacks allowed. Ho-hum. Boring. Then he began to spit out more statistics about the defense from a year ago ... Excuse me, but there is only one question here: How tight is that noose getting around Vanderlinden's neck?

Saturday's 21-7 victory over Delaware State alleviated some of the pressure on a Towson football program that had begun the season 0-2. But coach Rob Ambrose used a difference adjective to describe the post-game mood. “Maybe for some of us [it was pressure], but more excitement, especially for some of these younger guys who haven't had the taste of winning ball games that are in their hands,” he said Monday afternoon during his weekly conference call arranged by the Colonial Athletic Association.

Most college basketball coaches would not have survived the string of losing seasons Coppin State's Ron “Fang” Mitchell had over the last decade of his career. Then again, most coaches had not accomplished nearly as much as Mitchell did in taking the little North Avenue school to national acclaim. Mitchell's 28-year tenure at Coppin State - after legendary Mount St. Mary's coach Jim Phelan, the longest ever among men's basketball coaches at Division I schools in Maryland - ended Friday when his contract was not renewed.

Mount St. Mary's search for its first win of the season has been complicated by slow starts. The Mountaineers (0-8) have begun seven contests with deficits in the first quarter. The only time they didn't trail was against Manhattan on March 9 when the score was tied 2-2. But Mount St. Mary's has been outscored, 27-6, in the opening periods, and the trend of falling behind early has caught the attention of coach Tom Gravante. “We understand that as a staff, and we're trying to make adjustments to have better starts,” he said prior to Saturday's 17-7 loss to UMBC.

McDaniel coach Matt Hatton chuckled when asked Friday morning to characterize the significance of Wednesday's 7-6 decision against McDaniel, which was the Green Terror's first win of the 2014 campaign. “I think from a variety of standpoints - morale being one of them - that was a big one for us,” he said. “One of the things we talked about going into that game was that it was two what I would consider pretty decent teams that were both 0-3 and one of them was going to leave at 0-4 and one of them was going to be 1-3. So hopefully, it's something that we can build on. It was a close game.

In the beginning, there were maybe 1,000 people who lined the southeast corner of the parade grounds at West Point to witness the first football game between Army and Navy. Playing on a cold, cloudy day on Nov. 29, 1890, Navy beat Army, 24-0. And thus was born college football's most spirited rivalry.Today, they'll play the game before more than 70,000 people at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia. And millions more will watch the nationally televised contest. This will be the 91st meeting between the two academies, which have played annually since 1930 after a two-year layoff.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The ink has only just dried on the Orioles' monumental four-year deal with starter Ubaldo Jimenez, but the club remains interested in acquiring at least one other big-ticket free agent. The Orioles have intensified their pursuit of free-agent designated hitter Kendrys Morales and right-handed starter Ervin Santana, according to industry sources. The club has been linked to both players throughout the offseason, but did not appear to be in serious negotiations recently as Jimenez signed a four-year, $50 million deal, the largest and longest contract given to a free-agent pitcher in franchise history.

Taylor Cummings fought off monster butterflies in her stomach last year as a freshman starter for the Maryland women's lacrosse team. Even though the McDonogh graduate ranked No. 1 in her recruiting class and played for the No. 1 high school team in the country, she could not shake the nerves before every Terps game. She always felt there was so much more to learn playing on a Maryland team ranked No. 1 until it fell in the NCAA championship in triple overtime to North Carolina.
