It was very nice of Bob Leffler to paint his big picture of what many of us call the mistake in progress at Towson University regarding eliminating the 91-year soccer program ("The big picture for TU," April 16). As an alumnus who has a consecutive giving record since graduation in 1957, as a player on the soccer team for four years, as a member and former officer of the Towson University Hall of Fame, and as an activist on behalf of the institution through the years, I still very much care about my school.

While the Obama administration presses colleges and universities to respond more aggressively to sexual assaults, students who are attacked at Baltimore-area schools are unable to get rape kit exams on their campuses. Instead, they must go to a hospital off-campus - an extra step that advocates for victims say deters at least some from reporting the crime. The question whether schools should offer the exams is the subject of a national debate that is dividing school administrators, nurse examiners and advocates - with victims falling on both sides.

There's no sugar-coating it. The Ravens have gone from a "state of emergency" to an exercise in futility over the past three weeks and find themselves flirting with the first non-playoff season of the John Harbaugh era. What a colossal disappointment that would be, coming right on the heels of the franchise's second Super Bowl championship, but it wouldn't be the end of the world and it certainly wouldn't be vindication for all the sports talk...

Because the Yankees are in town, and shortstop Derek Jeter is retiring at season's end, Orioles manager Buck Showalter fielded questions about Jeter to start his daily media briefing. Showalter was Jeter's first manager in New York. And Showalter said all the right things -- things he has said for years -- about how Jeter does everything the right way and knows how to treat people. But Showalter also had a hilarious aside that I'm sure will make some Orioles fans chuckle. Each team is giving Jeter a going-away present; last year, the Orioles gave retiring closer Mariano Rivera a sculpted broken bat. So what should the Orioles give Jeter?

Wim Wenders' spectacular image of the Australian outback, on view at C. Grimaldis Gallery, presents an enormous panorama of rust-colored rock, jagged mountains and pale-blue sky 6 feet tall and more than 14 feet long - a picture so large it nearly fills an entire wall of the gallery. Only a few years ago, such a gargantuan image would have been a rarity - indeed, a near physical impossibility - for most photography shows, where the idea of big used to be anything larger than 8-by-10 inches.

PRINCESS ANNE -- Fang Mitchell paced in front of Coppin State's bench. He wiped his face with his hands, waved his arms, stomped his feet and hollered. And this was during the first minute of the game.By the end, Mitchell had covered more ground than a marathoner. But he had more to show for it, too -- his 400th career win.Not that he enjoyed it much. Coppin rallied in the last six minutes to defeat UMES, 69-60, at Tawes Gymnasium, but if that were reason to celebrate, Mitchell couldn't see it.His vision was locked on what he calls "the big picture."

The Sun has given prominent coverage to the most dramatic aspects of the BGE rate increase story: legislation passed by a special session of the General Assembly that caps the initial increase at 15 percent instead of 72 percent, fires all current members of the Public Service Commission, which oversees utility regulation, and restructures the commission. The newspaper also has paid close attention to a public hearing on the bill that was chaired and tightly controlled by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., and to the governor's subsequent veto of the legislation.

Aberdeen had just beaten rival Edgewood on its home court by 37 points, avenging three losses to the Rams last year - including a 36-point drubbing in the state playoffs. But on the mind of Eagles junior forward Erin Henderson, who registered 14 points and 12 rebounds in Aberdeen's 84-47 victory before 850 at a sold-out Rams' gym on Friday, was the big picture, not the big payback. "This feels good, but this is just another step to where we want to be," said Henderson, the brother of University of Maryland All-American linebacker E.J. Henderson.

Dishing out sports media notes while waiting for the next episode of the new summer series on Fox News, The Greta and Brett Show: *The hiring of Bob Papa as the NFL Network's play-by-play voice - a long-anticipated move announced this week - means a switch in outlook on the games from the perspective offered by Bryant Gumbel. That's according to the man sitting behind the analyst microphone for the Thursday night package, Cris Collinsworth. "With Bryant, I was always interested in his take on the games because Bryant has a way of seeing a very broad picture of the NFL and big picture of where the NFL fits in the world, obviously with all his news background and such," Collinsworth said, according to highlights of a conference call.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made it abundantly clear to reporters on Monday that he had no interest in talking about letdowns, psychology and the big picture. He just wanted to talk about football, which explains why he said "football" nine times in 30 seconds during his press conference. [ via Baltimore Sports Report ]

On June 12, three Jewish teenage students in Israel were kidnapped and shortly afterward murdered. Their bodies were not discovered until June 30. No mention of the kidnapping in The Baltimore Sun at the time. Finally, after some days when this news did appear, it was printed in the back pages with no picture. However, a "Palestinian teen" reportedly beaten made front page news the next day with a big picture ( "Teen reportedly beaten in Israel riot was born in Baltimore, family says," July 7)

While pundits and prognosticators may assert that No. 9 Johns Hopkins' 11-6 victory over No. 5 Maryland on Saturday at Homewood Field in Baltimore furthered solidified the Blue Jays' prospects of grabbing an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, coach Dave Pietramala made it clear that he had no such desire to entertain the validity of that scenario. “I don't care about the big picture,” he said. “I've told you every week that what I care about is right in front of us, and what was right in front of us was Maryland and now we've turned around and what's right in front of us is Mount St. Mary's [on Monday]

As his team prepares for a much-needed home game Wednesday night after two bad road losses, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon says his players must pull out of their "funk" and focus on the big picture. In the big picture, Turgeon says, the Terps are 2-2 in the conference. They may not feel like a .500 team after losses of 20 points and 24 points, respectively, to Pittsburgh and Florida State. “Guys got to get themselves out of the funk,” Turgeon said Monday on the ACC's media conference call.

Regarding Adam Schneider's recent commentary ("Supplement charity with advocacy," Dec. 1), raising the minimum wage should not be used as a solution to assist the less fortunate. There are misleading statistical errors in Mr. Schneider's claim that no minimum wage worker can afford an efficiency apartment unit. His claim directly conflicts with data provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development showing that at least eight counties in Maryland contain fair market rent efficiency units affordable to minimum wage earners working 25 hours a week or less.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland's membership in the Big Ten Conference next season means that all Terps home football games will be televised, according to the Big Ten Network. Home games will appear on the Big Ten Network, ABC or one of the ESPN networks. The conference's contract with its television rights holders calls for all home football games to be broadcast. There is no guarantee that all away games will be televised. For nonconference away games, the home team's conference has TV rights agreements that dictate whether games will be shown.

The Big Picture. The New Logic of Money and Power in Hollywood By Edward Jay Epstein. Random House. 381 pages. $25.95. Each week, most newspapers publish the movie industry's Top 10 weekly box office grosses. To the press and to most consumers, this chart is the barometer of financial success for films. But as well-respected journalist Edward Jay Epstein writes in his meticulously reported new book, The Big Picture, the size of those box office receipts has little to do in defining success in today's Hollywood.

After this week's disaster in the desert, the Orioles are off today. After losing three straight games to the Arizona Diamondbacks, you'd think a day off would be welcome. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that some of his players would love to play today to get that losing taste out of their mouths. “I wanna play,” center fielder Adam Jones said. “But it's a scheduled day off. Let's get the hell away from the game.” The off day is much needed for a taxed Orioles bullpen.

The Orioles tried not to make a big deal of Wei-Yin Chen's absence for nearly two months because of a strained oblique. But the Taiwanese lefty has been exceptionally consistent in his year-plus, major league career and not having him take the ball every fifth day has been a challenge - as manager Buck Showalter would say - for the Orioles. Consider that when Chen goes at least seven innings in a start - it happened nine times last year and for the second time this season Wednesday - the Orioles are 11-0.
