CINCINNATI - A shadow of a different kind is hanging over Punxsutawney Phil. Authorities in still-frigid Ohio have issued an "indictment" against the famed groundhog, who predicted an early spring when he didn't see his shadow after emerging from his lair in Western Pennsylvania on Feb. 2. Spring arrived Wednesday, and temperatures are still hovering in the 30s in the Buckeye state and much of the Northeast. While it's not the coldest spring on record, it's a good 5 degrees below normal, said Don Hughes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio.

MANSFIELD, Ohio - It's all about Ohio - again. The economy has improved here, and so has President Obama's standing, putting pressure on Republican Mitt Romney in a state critical to his presidential hopes. No Republican has won the White House without winning Ohio, and Romney hopes to catch Obama here by slashing at his jobs record in working-class regions. "America doesn't have to have the long face it has had under this president," the Republican shouted Monday to a cheering audience in hardscrabble Mansfield, just weeks after Obama visited.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Walter Offutt and Ohio are moving on in the NCAA Tournament. Step aside, VCU. Enjoy your memories, Butler. The Bobcats are well on their way to becoming the mid-major darlings of this March Madness. Offutt scored 21 points, D.J. Cooper had 19 and No. 13 seed Ohio beat South Florida last night, 62-56, to advance to the Midwest Regional Round of 16. The Bobcats (29-7), who opened the tournament with an upset against fourth-seeded Michigan, will play No. 1 seed North Carolina in St. Louis on Friday in their first trip to the Round of 16 since they lost to the Wolverines in the regional finals in 1964.

WARREN, OHIO - Investigators on Monday tried to piece together what eight teenagers crammed into a stolen SUV were up to before the vehicle flipped over into a pond, killing six of them. Authorities gave few details on where the group of friends had been and why they were out around daybreak Sunday, speeding down a two-lane road. On Monday, the SUV's owner met with police and filed a stolen-car report. Although the father of one of the dead said the teenagers were coming home from a sleepover, the mother of another boy killed said that her son and his best friend had lied about staying over at each other's homes.

ST. LOUIS - Awful all night, Harrison Barnes came through when North Carolina needed him most. Barnes scored five of his 12 points in overtime as the top-seeded Tar Heels escaped a huge upset with a 73-65 victory over 13th-seeded Ohio on Friday night in their Midwest Regional semifinal. Ohio, trying to become the first team seeded 13th or worse to make the regional finals since the tournament expanded in 1985, had a chance to convert a three-point play that would have given the Bobcats the lead with 25 seconds left in regulation.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - As a young state senator 30 years ago, Paul Pfeifer helped write Ohio's death-penalty law. Today, as the senior member of the state Supreme Court, he's trying to eliminate it. It's not uncommon for sitting judges to change their minds about the death penalty - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun famously said in 1994 he would no longer "tinker with the machinery of death" - but Pfeifer may be the only one to argue so ardently against...

IT'S THIS BASIC: If Temple (5-3, 3-2) wins its final three MAC games it will win the league's East title for the first time. If the Owls don't, well, who knows? But at the very least they'd need help, maybe a lot. They've been here before. In 2009 they took a nine-game winning streak into the regular-season finale at Ohio. Playing without running back Bernard Pierce and his injured shoulder they lost, 35-17, even though fellow-freshman Matt Brown rushed for 172 yards.

It's no secret that Punxsutawney Phil is a shadowy underworld figure. And yet it now looks like the dirty rat-cousin could burrow his way out of a possible death sentence in Ohio. A supposed higher-up in the Gobbler's Knob mob has stepped forward to be the fall (or winter and still-not-spring) guy. Police in Maryland, however, have yet to withdraw their "Suspect Wanted for Fraud" proclamation. Being a famous groundhog in Pennsylvania isn't such a warm and fuzzy deal anymore.

Ken Mauk turned the 46th Annual Big 33 game, between former Ohio and Pennsylvania high school standouts, into his own personal PlayStation. Ohio's 6-foot-2, 205-pound quarterback threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in leading Ohio to a 38-7 thumping of Pennsylvania last night in front of 16,489 fans at HersheyPark Stadium. Ohio's victory ended a three-game losing streak. The 31-point difference was the largest margin of victory in the series. Pennsylvania's Adam Bednarik prevented the shutout when he scored on a 17-yard run with 4 minutes, 48 seconds left to play in the game.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - It's hard to imagine any player seeing his stock soar more since the beginning of the college basketball season than Ohio State freshman D'Angelo Russell. The 6-foot-5, 180-pound combo guard is projected to go second in the latest mock NBA draft by Draftexpress.com. And it's not just the mock drafters who hold Russell in high regard. Representatives of several NBA teams, including 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie, were on hand Sunday for No. 20 Ohio State's 79-60 win over Rutgers at the Rutgers Athletic Center.

MOBILE, Ala. - Quinten Rollins said he doesn't recall the name of the Baltimore Ravens scout who came up with the idea that he try football again, after using up his college basketball eligibility. Seems odd, given that Rollins is now a major generator of buzz at the Senior Bowl, following his one-and-only season as a cornerback at Miami of Ohio. But as this draft process continues, if there is a God in heaven or an ESPN in Bristol, Conn., surely Rollins and the anonymous Ravens scout will be reunited.

ARLINGTON, Texas - What might be the final pass of Marcus Mariota's storied college career finished in the hands of Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple, a Voorhees native who enjoyed his ultimate experience Monday night. The interception sealed the Buckeyes' 42-20 upset of Oregon in the national championship, a resounding victory that gave Apple a title to bring back home. "This is something I dreamed of since I was 11, 12 years old," Apple said in an emotional postgame locker room. "This is something I told my friends about, and they all laughed at me. . . . I'm sure everybody's very proud.

ARLINGTON, Texas - They were covered with gold confetti and needed to be ushered off the field, but the Ohio State players did not want to leave. They wrapped their arms around each other to pose for more photos, to accept more congratulations, to prolong the celebration just another minute longer. Their season was never supposed to go this far, and it extended only because this is the year college football finally embraced a playoff. The Buckeyes were the most debated of the four selections in the inaugural event, but they finished Monday night as national champions.

CHIP KELLY'S fingerprints are all over this game. He obviously coached and recruited Oregon's upper-classmen, before coming to the Eagles after the 2012 season. But Kelly also is good friends with Ohio State coach Urban Meyer. They have exchanged concepts, philosophies and probably recipes at least since Meyer was at Utah (2003-04) and Kelly was an assistant at New Hampshire. "For Chip Kelly, to create a culture - and [Bill] Belichick talks about it all the time - where everyone's aligned.

DALLAS - Kerry Coombs now pays attention to the hydration level of his players, how many hours they slept, and what percentage of practice their heart rate is elevated above 85 percent. The Ohio State cornerbacks/special teams coach does not pretend to know the science behind the data, but he studies the daily printout as part of the Buckeyes' increased sports science initiative. The emphasis traces back to the Eagles. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer spent a few days at the NovaCare Complex last offseason, visiting with Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

WHAT DO YOU give an Oregon football fan who has everything? Nike is banking that a Ducks jersey that doesn't sport either of the school's bright green or yellow colors will fly off the shelves. The sports apparel giant unveiled the new uniforms Oregon and Ohio State will wear in Monday night's national championship game and . . . well let's just say there were some surprises. The Ducks' biggest booster is Oregon alum - and Nike chairman - Phil Knight, who has provided the team with over 60 different uniform styles since the late 1990s.

STATE COLLEGE - Former defensive coordinator Tom Bradley spent more than 3 decades at Penn State. About one-third of that time was spent with Larry Johnson by his side. In their time on the staff, Bradley, now an assistant head coach at West Virginia, and Johnson helped forge dominating defenses. "When we worked together, it was always about the team," Bradley said. The same remains true for Johnson, even though that team is no longer Penn State. From 1996 to 2013, Johnson roamed the Beaver Stadium sideline as an assistant coach.

STATE COLLEGE - James Franklin walked into the Beaver Stadium press room and thanked everyone for coming. But instead of continuing his opening statement, he paused. With his head down, Franklin tried to find the right words. After taking 10 seconds to collect himself, the misty-eyed coach held back tears and proceeded. "I want to thank the fans. We had an unbelievable environment tonight," Franklin said. "I'm really proud of Penn State. An example of, when we all come together as a family, we have a chance to do some special things.
