Andy Geiger knows all about the benefits of leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Big Ten. In the spring of 1994, Geiger resigned as the athletic director in College Park to take the same job at Ohio State, going from a program that was in financial distress to one that seemed to be printing money. As much as Ohio State's riches that helped fully fund 36 varsity sports at the time had to do with the passion of its fans, it also had to do with the support it received from the Big Ten. “The Big Ten is wired with the ability to change programs and grow things,” said Geiger, who earlier this year came out retirement to become the athletic director at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The Post quoted Maryland athletic director Andy Geiger as saying the series probably would be discontinued after next season."There were some things [in the report in The Post] that were not accurate," Tarman said by telephone from University Park, Pa. "I don't think Andy Geiger tried to be misleading, but we absolutely have signed contracts through 1993."

COLLEGE PARK -- An attorney for Maryland wide receiver Kevin Washington said yesterday he has begun preliminary talks with officials from the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office, but he's not certain if any plea or other legal arrangements can be made before Washington's Oct. 23 court date.Washington, a redshirt freshman from Dunbar High, is facing three counts of felony forgery and nine counts of misdemeanor theft. Charges were filed by campus police on Aug. 14."It would be unfair at this point to say something definite is going to happen because of the number of parties involved," said Harvey Siegel, of Siegel & Siegel in Baltimore.

COLLEGE PARK -- It was a little less than a year ago that Maryland defensive back Scott Rosen saw a paragraph in a newspaper that brought joy to his heart. It reinforced his belief that a defense should "snort and get a mean-on."After the Terps were pounded by Michigan, 45-17, he read that the Wolverines had more players in the training room after that game than any other. Rosen found solace in that: OK, the defense gave up 45 points but at least everybody hit hard."It makes you feel good that even though you lost, you get that respect," Rosen said.
