Sending ex-presidents into exile beats lavishing monuments, offices, security guards and secretarial staffs on them.Hosting the NCAA first round at the Arena puts Baltimore up there with such metropoli as Dayton, Austin, Memphis, Tallahassee, Albany, Salt Lake City and Boise. Especially Boise.Iconoclasm is alive and well in the former Yugoslavia. Everything stolen from those churches and mosques will be on the art market soon.

Despite its longest losing streak in nine years and the prospect of its first losing season in that span, the Navy football team is still an attractive commodity to the Big East. From all indications, it appears the feeling is mutual. Though no formal invitations have been offered, the Big East took a significant step toward expansion when the presidents of the league's remaining seven schools voted Tuesday in Philadelphia to add members. According to the Associated Press, the Big East will invite Houston, Southern Methodist and Central Florida for full membership, as well as Navy, Air Force and Boise State — considered the plum catch in this bid for survival — as football-only members.

TCU can't get to the Big East fast enough. The Horned Frogs leave the Mountain West next season, which is looking good after their 50-48 loss to Baylor on Friday. If they were in the Big East this season, they'd still have a shot at a BCS bowl. The Big East should reconsider Villanova as a potential member. The FCS Wildcats have been mentioned as a possible addition, but after their 42-7 loss to Temple on Thursday, maybe Big East officials should rethink that. Don't mess with success.

BOISE, Idaho - Most games this season, Georgia State's backcourt felt comfortable letting it fly from the outside. The Panthers set a school record with 267 three-pointers this season, seventh in the nation. Their usual strength helped lead to their downfall in a 79-60 loss to Maryland at Boise State University Pavilion. Georgia State shot just 18 percent from three-point territory and 31 percent overall for the game. "We didn't shoot," Georgia State coach Lefty Driesell said. "Thomas Terrell, who was our second-leading scorer this year, was 2-for-11, and Kevin [Morris]

BOISE, Idaho - Even Gary Williams acknowledges that he was pulling for Lefty Driesell to make it to this game. Well, the Lefthander is here, with his folksy charm and effortless stream of one-liners and the same bald pate that once was an indelible part of College Park scenery. And when Williams and Driesell walk onto the Boise State University Pavilion court today, when Maryland and Georgia State continue a wild, opening weekend in the West region with a second-round battle that will yield a Sweet 16 member, two Terrapins eras will converge.

BOISE, Idaho - They catch your eye as soon as they enter the gym, not just with their basketball skills, but also because of the marching band and cheerleaders. It's a show inside The Show. Not only has No. 15-seeded Hampton University captured the hearts of fans in Boise, of all places, with their stunning, 58-57 upset of second-seeded Iowa State on Thursday night in the West Regional, the Pirates are the essence of what the NCAA tournament and college athletics should be all about. It's a tale of David vs. Goliath.

A matchup with undefeated Boise State on its home field in the Humanitarian Bowl emerged yesterday as Maryland's most likely bowl scenario, but the Terrapins' spot in the Dec. 30 game was not guaranteed. The Humanitarian Bowl is intrigued by a possible matchup of two undefeated teams - Boise State and Ball State. If Ball State commits, the Terps would be bypassed and would probably end up with an at-large bid to the Motor City Bowl in Detroit or another game, according to bowl officials and others.

Oregon and Auburn are four wins and two weekends away from securing berths in the Bowl Championship Series title game in January — but it could be a long two weeks. The Ducks and Tigers remained 1-2 in Sunday's latest release of the BCS standings, leaving no doubt they're the schools to beat in the title-game chase. Oregon remained on top with a BCS average of .9764, followed by Auburn at .9682. Boise State, however, appears poised to take advantage if the Broncos win out and either of the top teams falters.

Boise State had the most impressive weekend among the four remaining undefeated teams but stayed stuck at No. 4 in the latest Bowl Championship Series standings released Sunday. The Broncos, however, might not be No. 4 for long. Oregon, despite a two-point victory at California, remained No. 1 with a BCS average of .9753. Auburn remained No. 2 at .9687, and TCU remained third at .8966. Boise State is fourth at .863 but cut TCU's points lead in half. The Horned Frogs overtook Boise State last week with an emphatic victory at undefeated Utah but lost ground this week with a closer-than-expected win over San Diego State, coupled with Utah's blowout loss at Notre Dame.

A new restaurant opened in Boise, Idaho, this week: TGIS (Thank God It's Saturday). Last Tuesday's 29-point home victory over Louisiana Tech was lost in the work week and maybe caused the Broncos to fall from third to fourth behind Texas Christian in the BCS standings. Boise State is back to work on a football Saturday with a huge home game against resurgent Hawaii (7-2), unranked but mysteriously sitting at No. 26 in all three major polls. You tell me — a conspiracy to keep Boise from a victory over a ranked opponent?

Oregon passed Auburn in Sunday's Bowl Championship Series standings, but that wasn't big news considering first and second are of equal value in terms of getting to the title game. The news was Texas Christian jumping ahead of Boise State into third position, and Utah moving up three positions from last week into the fifth spot. Oregon, a 53-32 winner over USC on Saturday, is first in the BCS with an average of .9777, followed by Auburn at .9599. TCU is third with an average of .8911, followed by Boise State at .8824 and Utah at .7318.

The first Bowl Championship Series standings are out, and it's not what you think. While several experts last week predicted Boise State would debut at No. 1, a few key upsets over the weekend changed everything and pushed Oklahoma to the top spot. The Sooners check in with a BCS average of .9215, followed by Oregon at .8921 and Boise State at .8898. Ohio State was No. 1 in the Associated Press and coaches polls heading into last weekend's games, but a 31-18 pasting at Wisconsin dropped the Buckeyes (.5726)

If y'all detect a Southern accent, it's because Alabama has moved into the No. 2 slot after its come-from-behind victory at Arkansas. Crimson Tide quarterback Greg McElroy still hasn't lost a game since junior high, and you can bet his first is not going to be against Gainesville's "Swamp Thing. " With grits and practice, Alabama has a chance to be as good as Boise State this year. Stanford uses the myth-of-beating-Notre Dame theory to jump six spots in advance of its big game at Oregon.

For one, the Broncos would need to finish the season undefeated. Their next real test comes Sept.
