When the schedule first came out for the Edgewood girls soccer team, this week, understandably, looked imposing. First up on Monday was C. Milton Wright, the Class 3A state finalist and four-time Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference champions. Fallston, which reached the Class 2A state title game last year, was next on Wednesday. But the once imposing week has turned into a confidence-building one. The Rams, which won the league's lower Susquehanna division last year and have since moved up to the higher Chesapeake division, came away with a thrilling 4-3 overtime win over C. Milton Wright and then upset No. 12 Fallston, 4-0.  The two wins puts the Rams at 7-1 this season after last year's 10-6 mark.  The goal going into this season was to stay competitive in the tougher Chesapeake division, but their 2-0 start in league play has changed that.

Maryland narrowly escaped with a 24-17 win Saturday over South Florida , a team that was just 2-10 last season and that struggled with a lowly FCS program (Western Carolina) the week before. Nevertheless, the Terps begin this week as a three-point favorite over West Virginia, according to ESPN.com. West Virginia travels to face Maryland on Saturday in College Park, a game that will provide the biggest indicator to this point of just how good the Terps can be. The Mountaineers beat Towson 54-0 on Saturday and hung with No. 3 Alabama in Week 1 before falling 33-23.

The court of mixed public opinion about a planned shopping center in Remington is in full fact-finding and soul-searching modes this week. Developers of 25th Street Station are going back before several community groups and a key city panel with proposed changes that they say would make the center and its centerpiece, a 104,000-square-foot Walmart store, more pedestrian-friendly and easier on the eye. Also, a Baltimore City councilman is...

After opening the season with the same starting attack in the first three games, No. 7 Washington College made a change prior to Saturday's home contest against Frostburg State. The Shoremen (4-0) elected to move senior J.D. Campbell to the starting unit, joining senior Jim Cusick and junior Sam Birnbaum. Campbell scored one goal on five shots and collected five ground balls, which was second only to junior faceoff specialist Michael Trapp's six ground balls. “J.D.'s been playing very well, and we've got that five-man attack rotation,” coach Jeff Shirk said Monday morning.

Has Apple gotten lousy at keeping secrets these days? The tech press is abuzz with speculation that the company which birthed the iPhone and the iPad will be coming out with an in-between device, an iPad mini. The mini is expected to be smaller than the iPad but larger than the iPhone, and presumably go head-to-head against other similar devices from Amazon (Kindle Fire), Google (Nexus 7) and other manufacturers. What's interesting is that Microsoft is expected to unveil Windows 8 later this week, plus its own tablet competitor, Surface, on Friday.

Recognizing their talent and potential for something special, members of the St. Frances boys basketball team asked coach Nick Myles during the offseason to beef up their schedule. The Panthers wanted to be pushed, and the second-year coach obliged. So far, so good. In their most significant challenge to date, senior guard Maurice White scored 19 points and three of his teammates also reached double figures as the No. 2 Panthers beat nationally ranked Travis (Texas), 63-58, Friday in the I-95 Elite Challenge at Loyola University.

As the storyline of Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton and the WWE brass (Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, etc.) blossoms, we are seeing the "building heat" phase. The WWE Universe is developing more and more discontent toward the villain side of the equation, as the hero constantly gets one-upped and beaten down. Two weeks away from the next pay-per-view, Night of Champions, Bryan looks like he doesn't stand a chance.  This week's Raw ended the same way it has ended for the last few weeks -- with Randy Orton and the "corporation" standing tall over a lifeless "B+".

No. 5 Syracuse (2-2)@No. 4 Maryland (5-1) Saturday, 1 p.m. The Orange's .500 record is a bit deceptive because one of those losses was in overtime to No. 1 Northwestern, 11-9. With that showing and Saturday's 12-11 double-overtime win at Florida, Gary Gait's team will be a dangerous opponent for the Terrapins, who have not lost to the Orange in 11 meetings. The Terps are coming off a big week of their own, however, rebounding from a 10-9 loss to Duke with a 12-9 win over then-No.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made a smart move this week by cutting safety Michael Huff and defensive end Marcus Spears. You're never happy when someone losses their job, but Harbaugh set the tone going into a very big week. He gave out a warning after the Ravens lost to the Steelers that the team was willing to make changes or do whatever necessary to win. That in itself kept the players on edge over the bye week, and those announced cuts on Wednesday sent a message and created a sense of urgency.

Sometimes, I get a little tired of extolling the Ravens front office for its uncanny ability to identify talent, but it's hard not to do that whenever Joe Flacco steps to the microphone for one of his podium sessions at the Under Armour Performance Center. The guy was a small-school wunderkind with a big body and a great football IQ, but somebody was smart enough to foresee that he could be one of the winningest and toughest quarterbacks in the NFL. That toughness showed up early when he played through that horrible thigh bruise early in his pro career, and it has shown up throughout this season while he takes a weekly pounding behind the Ravens' struggling O-line.

It's a big week for Calvert Hall's soccer team in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, which will host St. Paul's on Monday at 4 p.m. and then travel to meet unbeaten McDonogh on Wednesday. The Cardinals (3-2-1) will cap off the week by welcoming in Mt. St. Joseph on Friday under the lights at 7 p.m. at Paul Angelo Russo Stadium in Towson. Calvert Hall fell in overtime to Archbishop Spalding and beat Loch Raven last weekend and is looking to build its playoff résumé with a couple of triumphs this week.

Ahmad Bradshaw has said that he plans to play Sunday, which should cause some concern for the Ravens. The New York Giants running back leads the team in rushing, piling up 869 yards and five touchdowns on 196 carries. And in his only meeting against the Ravens on Nov. 16, 2008, Bradshaw averaged 10.7 yards on just nine carries, rushing for 96 yards. That might not bode well for a Ravens defense that just surrendered 118 yards and one touchdown to the Denver Broncos' Knowshon Moreno in last Sunday's 34-17 loss.
