It has been 15 years since the Ravens won their first Super Bowl. They won another in 2012, which is remarkable for a franchise that has been in existence for only 20 years.

A halftime ceremony in which Ed Reed saw his name placed in the team¿s Ring of Honor left the normally loquacious Ravens legend at a seeming loss for words Sunday as he earned the highest honor from his longtime team.
After Brad Craddock¿s kickoff in the first quarter of Maryland¿s 31-24 loss to Wisconsin was returned 98 yards for a touchdown by Natrell Jamerson, Adam Greene, Craddock¿s backup at kicker, went about his normal duty: He jogged out to the Terps 35-yard line, picked up Craddock¿s kicking tee and ran back to the sidelines. He¿s done it plenty of times during his career at Maryland, and this time didn¿t seem any different.
After a whirlwind year featuring one of the most successful seasons ever for a Maryland kicker, the Lou Groza Award and his emergence as the face of the program, senior Brad Craddock is back to where he wants to be: on the field, honing his craft and getting ready for his final season.

But nothing has changed for the Australian as he aims to follow up last season.

The NFL wants to increase the difficulty of the extra point, and owners are expected to vote on a proposal to shift the attempt from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line.
