Influenced by three consecutive Fiesta Bowl wins and the posh accommodations at a resort hotel in nearby Scottsdale, Ohio State coach Jim Tressel the other day said, "This is paradise. " Well, trouble in paradise stirred immediately after Ted Ginn Jr. sent jolts of electricity through the predominantly Buckeyes crowd last night at University of Phoenix Stadium, and then it was easily lost as Florida, an eight-point underdog, won the BCS national championship, 41-14, before 74,628 spectators.

This is the story of a muscular forward who tried out for the 76ers Tuesday and Wednesday, impressing the coaching staff enough to earn an invitation to training camp. This is the story of Troy Smith, who made it as far as yesterday's precamp media session at St. Joseph's University, posing for photos in a Sixers jersey that had no name on the back. It's the story of a guy whose only professional basketball experience came in Argentina, who was laboring as a construction worker in Louisville, Ky., last month, who was within hours of making the trip down I-95 to the team's training camp headquarters.

As Debbie and Troy Smith revel in steadily increasing sales, a backlog of demand for their services, and the freedom of being their own bosses, the Chester County couple has earned the right to gloat. Not that they are gloating. They're just relieved that in 2006, while both had good jobs, they developed and began implementing Career Plan B. "We just saw the way the economy was going and were concerned about losing our jobs," Troy Smith said. In his wife's case, those worries were justified.

TROY K. SMITH Jr., 23, of East Mount Airy, hoped to pursue a career in criminal justice, but became a victim of a deadly crime himself. And now, those who knew him are going to march for justice. "I never thought anything like this [could happen] before. Never in my life. I've had death in my family, but it was never tragic like this," said his mother, Renee Whitmore, 41. Smith was her first-born child and only son. His parents described him as a "family man. " He didn't have children, but was known for the love he had for his relatives.

BALTIMORE - Joe Flacco walked back into the Baltimore Ravens' locker room Sunday afternoon and finished telling reporters how he had helped lead the Ravens back into the playoffs. He stared inside his locker, shook his head, and looked at the teammates giggling behind him. His socks and Air Jordan sneakers, their shoelaces tied together, had been drenched with water. "Who the [heck] did this?" said Flacco, laughing as backup quarterback Troy Smith strode by chuckling. The prank served as the day's lone reminder that Flacco is still only a rookie, still only one year removed from leading Delaware to the Championship Subdivision title game.

Expect the third quarter of Thursday's game against Cleveland at Veterans Stadium to determine the fate of the Eagles' defensive line. End/tackle Jon Harris, the team's first-round pick in 1997, is on the bubble with end/tackle Tyrone Williams, the NFL Europe sacks-leader; rookie tackle Pernell Davis; and, maybe, end/linebacker Al Wallace. Wallace seems most likely to make the club, perhaps occupying a linebacker slot. "It's a tough decision," defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said.

Collingswood's quest for its first state boys' basketball title ended in frustrating fashion last night at the Rutgers Athletic Center. The Panthers' breakthrough season ended with an 88-70 loss to Lincoln in the NJSIAA Group 2 state final. Lincoln (25-7) controlled the backboards, put four players in double figures and outscored Collingswood, 22-10, on fastbreak points as it won the program's first state title. It was, by far, the most points Collingswood (26-5) had allowed all season.

Joe Flacco as the Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback? According to reports, it could happen. Kyle Boller might be sidelined for the season because of a right shoulder injury, according to ESPN.com. ESPN, citing a source, reported Boller is putting off surgery for now and Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said he could return sometime this season. With backup Troy Smith recovering from a viral infection, Flacco, a rookie from Audubon, N.J., may have to play most or all of tonight's preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The towering duo of Jai Williams and David George proved to be too much for visiting Overbrook on Monday afternoon as Philadelphia Electrical eased to a 67-38 nonleague basketball win. Williams, a 6-foot-8 power forward, is being courted by Penn and other Ivy League schools. He scored a game-high 15 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked 4 shots. Williams, a 6-foot-9 forward, had 10 rebounds and 3 blocks to accompany his 11 points. Jai Brown and Hakeem Baxter both chipped in with double-digit scoring efforts.

Joe Flacco, the rookie quarterback from the University of Delaware, will start for the Baltimore Ravens for the rest of the season. ESPN.com reported that coach John Harbaugh made the announcement yesterday, when Troy Smith returned to practice from a severe tonsil infection that had sidelined him since training camp. Smith, a Heisman Trophy winner at Ohio State, had been expected to challenge for the job. But Harbaugh said Flacco, who played at Audubon High in Camden County, will stay at No. 1. Cowboys.

Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback Joe Flacco hasn't been in the NFL long enough to be jaded, and that is one reason Sunday's home game against the Eagles is a big deal for the product of Audubon High School and the University of Delaware. "It will really be cool, and there will be a number of people from Audubon coming down," Flacco said outside the Ravens' locker room following Sunday's 30-10 loss to the New York Giants. "I grew up watching the Eagles, and now they are coming to our house.

BALTIMORE - If this were a normal NFL preseason opener, even charged-up Eagles fans probably would have tuned out last night after the Birds trailed 13-3 at halftime of their 29-3 loss to the Ravens. But preseason games are never normal when a highly drafted rookie pegged as the quarterback of the future is thrown into the mix. And since everyone knew ahead of time that Donovan McNabb wasn't going to test his surgically repaired knee at least until Friday against the Carolina Panthers, the professional debut of rookie Kevin Kolb took an even greater spotlight.
