COLUMBUS - Before yesterday morning, the only time R.J. Umberger had spent in the visitors' locker room at Nationwide Arena came during the 2012-13 NHL lockout, when the Blue Jackets' locker room, obviously, wasn't accessible. "It's pretty weird," he noted after the Flyers practiced here yesterday. "It's a different feeling. " Though the Flyers (9-13-4) already have twice faced Scott Hartnell and the Blue Jackets (9-15-2), tonight's meeting is the first in Columbus. It's a meaningful one for Umberger, Philadelphia's oft-maligned third-line left wing.

STATE COLLEGE - After singing the postgame alma mater on Saturday, redshirt senior linebacker Mike Hull and his teammates didn't stick around to take in the scene at Beaver Stadium. They went straight to the locker room. "We wanted to give [the fans] a good show. We weren't able to do that," Hull said. "It wasn't a good feeling. We got our butts kicked. " Losing to No. 10 Michigan State, 34-10, on Senior Day wasn't what Hull or any of his fellow upperclassmen had in mind.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Wearing a black Eagles windbreaker and a pale beige Eagles polo shirt, Nick Sanchez lingered outside the visiting locker room at AT&T Stadium on Thursday night, a small smile on his face as he waited for his son Mark. "Best day ever," he said. At Nick's home in Orange County, Calif., some 50 members of the Sanchez family had gathered around the television to watch Mark play his finest game as an Eagle - 20 completions in 29 attempts, 217 yards, a passing touchdown, a rushing touchdown, no turnovers, everything crisp and sharp during a 33-10 rout of the Dallas Cowboys.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Tony Romo laughed as he popped out from behind a black curtain in the Cowboys' locker room late Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. "Eight-and-a-half seconds," he called across the locker room in disbelief. "Someone timed it. " The amount of time the Cowboys quarterback had to find Dez Bryant in the back of the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown in a 31-28 victory over the Giants was actually about a second shorter. But it must have felt like an eternity behind the Cowboys' talented line.

There is a theory floating around that the Flyers are off to a poor start because Claude Giroux is not a good captain. It's an erroneous theory. The Flyers have struggled because they have mid-level talent, and because several players haven't played with the passion provided by Giroux and his linemates. Giroux may not be the best sound bite in the Flyers' locker room, but he leads - quite well - with his relentless style on the ice. The 26-year-old star center has his own captain's style.

Flyers goalie Steve Mason handed Jackie Lithgow his stick Tuesday. Wayne Simmonds wrapped his arm around the 19-year-old and gave him encouraging words. Several players, including Mark Streit, Brayden Schenn, and Michael Del Zotto, and coach Craig Berube told Lithgow he was welcome to visit the locker room anytime. "Epic," Lithgow said in a low, barely audible tone while sitting in a wheelchair in the middle of the locker room at the team's Voorhees practice facility. Lithgow was attending Bloomsburg University when he was assaulted almost nine months ago. He left the hospital Tuesday for the first time since his grueling rehabilitation began.

AS IF LAST week's confusion surrounding the Class A city title matchup between KIPP DuBois Collegiate Academy and Bishop McDevitt wasn't enough, allegations of theft arose before the two teams even played a down on Saturday. KIPP, in its first year of varsity football, eventually won, 16-14, thanks to senior wide receiver Kyree Ruffin's late touchdown. However, unfortunately for both sides, accusations of thievery against a youth football program playing at the field before the championship game cast a pall over the proceedings.

MYCHAL KENDRICKS, Darren Sproles, Jason Kelce and Chris Polk all practiced for the Eagles yesterday. Of course they did. Consider it a triumph of culture. Like no other sport, vetted football veterans tend to lean toward gradual reinsertion with an eye toward good health down the road. Not all of the aforementioned are vetted veterans - Kendricks and Polk are playing for longevity and a big payday - but the absence of apathy is remarkable. Nobody's milking their money.

Cary Williams was quieter this time. He was one of the last players to dress in the Eagles locker room Sunday after their 26-21 loss to the 49ers, and this time there would be no rambling monologue about Chip Kelly or a team's tired legs, none of the nonsense that poured out of Williams the week before. Then, he had picked the happy aftermath of a dramatic victory over Washington to paint himself as the only man in the room brave enough to tell hard truths about Kelly's demanding practice schedule.
