STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Sylvester Croom was an icon in Southern society at Mississippi State a year ago. Now, he's starting to feel more like a football coach.

A little more depth, a little more offense, perhaps even a quick turnaround with the ball in the red zone and Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom could rest a little easier three weeks before the 2005 home season opener.

Bulldog Baseball

Rafael Palmeiro returned from a 10-day suspension Thursday eager to play baseball for the Baltimore Orioles, yet unwilling to discuss the positive test for steroids that tarnished his name, perhaps forever.
Palmeiro returns, but doesn't say much

The rudest welcome Kenny Rogers received at Fenway Park last night came from Manny Ramirez, who sent a fourth-inning pitch into orbit for a three-run homer. Tonight, it will be Rogers' brother in exile, Rafael Palmeiro, returning from suspension as the Orioles play the Devil Rays at Camden Yards. I'm guessing his hosts won't be nearly as gracious as Rogers' were last night, that is if Palmeiro dares to stick his head out of the dugout at all. Then again, how many fans will bother to show up and greet him?
