Tight end chooses Terps; Cohen waiting to decide

  • A top prospect from Washington, D.C., who had been considering Florida has decided to go elsewhere.
    Washington Dunbar tight end/linebacker Vernon Davis announced at his high school Friday afternoon that he'll sign with Maryland on Wednesday. He picked the Terrapins over the Gators.
    Davis had been leaning to Maryland since early in the recruiting process, but gave UF strong consideration over the past week after visiting Gainesville last weekend.

    Arrest warrant issued for former MVP Caminiti

    A urine sample he gave Monday showed he had used the drug, according to the warrant.

    New Tide coach moves into old one's house

  • TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Mike Price has moved into Dennis Franchione's old job, his old office - and soon his old house.
    The new Alabama football coach is buying Franchione's home beside a golf course in the pricey North River subdivision.
    "I'm not afraid of bad karma, unless you mean 10 wins over two seasons and finishing 11th in the nation," Price told The Tuscaloosa News in a story Friday. "That kind of bad karma?
    "It's like any coach's house, but if it does have karma, maybe we'll win some games."
    Franchione resided in the five-bedroom house with a listing price of $880,000 during his two-year stay in Tuscaloosa. He led Alabama to a 10-3 record last season but angered Tide fans when he took the Texas A&M coaching job days after the season finale at Hawaii.
