With a huge SEC game against Georgia this weekend, Auburn coach Gene Chizik came to the defense of quarterback Cam Newton for the second time in five days following reports he committed academic misconduct during his two years at Florida. "I'm standing up here on a very important week trying to defend something that, quite frankly, is garbage," Chizik said in a statement that kicked off his weekly news conference. "Is there a wizard behind the curtain? I don't know and I don't care.

Maryland voters can expect to see an escalating barrage of television ads before the June 24 primary for governor, a blitz that will be fueled by the nearly $9 million the contenders have in the bank. Most of that money will be spent on the Democratic contest. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown leads with about $4 million on hand, but Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has $3 million - enough to pay for a sustained presence on the air. And Del. Heather R. Mizeur, with nearly $1 million, says she'll be on TV as well.

In my three years covering Baltimore sports, I've been able to do plenty of fun things, such as covering three Ravens playoff runs, occasionally watching the Orioles win baseball games, lacing up the skates with the Charm City Roller Girls and going one-on-one with the Baltimore Blast's leading scorer, Pat Healey. I have yet to take a legitimate vacation until now (sports bloggers typically don't have six-figure salaries and a lot of downtime). So on Sunday morning, I'm off to the Caribbean where I will be floating from island to island for seven days, showing off my beer belly and watching the NCAA tournament while drinking some frozen beverages with umbrellas in them.

Hyunhwa Thomas Yu and Yuko Naululani Yu hail from different countries in Asia, but the world of ballroom dance brought them together in America. About six years ago, while each was seeking a dance partner, the two discovered one another and quickly formed an artistic connection. Before long, however, the pair would waltz, tango and quick-step their way toward love, then marriage. "We share something in common that's close to our hearts," says Tom, 54, a South Korean emigre whose family arrived in Champaign, Ill., when he was a teen.

Every time I put out one of my mock drafts, readers tell me they think things would play out differently (chances are we'll both end up being wrong). Well, now you get a chance to play GM in my first-ever reader NFL mock draft. Here's how it works. I'll post a daily poll where you can vote to decide what the team that's on the clock should do with its pick. To keep it simple, I'll give you five options for each pick. If you think I missed somebody, let me know in the comments section.

In the NFL, the quarterback is king, and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh on Wednesday likened protecting his to a game of chess in the trenches, with offensive linemen and running backs sliding like chess pieces to stymie attacks from opponents and keep quarterback Joe Flacco from getting sacked. Through nine games, though, the Ravens have lost too many of these battles. Flacco was sacked five times on Sunday. Opposing defenses have now put Flacco in checkmate 30 times, third most in the league.

The No. 14 Johns Hopkins football team is tied for fourth in Division III in sacks with 23, and a good portion of the credit goes to the defensive front four of junior defensive ends Michael Longo and Michael Connery, senior defensive tackle Joe DiTrolio and junior defensive tackle Michael Rocca. That group has accounted for 9½ sacks and been the foundation of the defense, according to coach Jim Margraff. "I think our defense is playing at a very high level right now," he said Wednesday.

Has President Obama had his way with TV anchors this week during his media blitz on Syria? That's one of the questions that was explored Sunday on "Media Buzz," the new Howard Kurtz media show on Fox News.

At the December 2012 wedding of Leslie Lipinski and Devin Phillips, there were purple dresses for the bridesmaids. Purple Converse sneakers for the groomsmen. Purple-and-black decor. The 234 guests, many of them wearing Ravens jerseys, were invited to tour M&T Bank Stadium. And halfway through the Ravens-themed reception, Devin and Leslie changed into jerseys. The best part? Posing for photos in a three-point stance on the line of scrimmage. "We're both Baltimore born and raised and have been fans since the beginning," says Leslie, 27 a registered nurse.

Anna Di Pierno's little charmer of a restaurant has been around for about seven years, operating under the name Pasta Blitz. If you go looking for it, though, look for Il Basilico. Di Pierno has taken a deliberate approach to the name change, but the transition is almost complete. The neon sign above the restaurant, located in a Timonium strip mall, still carries the old name, but virtually everything inside is now emblazoned with the Il Basilico logo. The menu has been changing gradually, too. The main part still consists of Italian-American favorites - lots of them - things like veal Parmigiana, homemade lasagna Bolognese and chicken cacciatore.

A new round of spending by Penn National Gaming and MGM Resorts International has pushed the ad war in the referendum over expanded gambling into record territory -- eclipsing the $34 million raised for the 2006 governor's race with four weeks to go before Election Day. In a filing posted Tuesday with the State Board of Elections, the ballot committee financed by Penn National reported that its outlay for the effort to defeat Question 7 has reached...

The indefinite absence of reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year and five-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is already a worrisome topic with regards to the Ravens' pass rush. It could also force the secondary to add another responsibility to its plate. If Paul Kruger, Albert McClellan and rookie Courtney Upshaw can't fill the void created by Suggs' ruptured right Achilles tendon, the defense might be forced to get creative with its blitzes. And that could entail asking the cornerbacks and safeties to get more involved.
