Johnnie Rhodes, a 6-5 forward from Washington who orally committed to Maryland, has yet to sign.The early signing period ended yesterday.According to The Montgomery Journal, the admissions department at Maryland has yet to approve a scholarship for Rhodes since his grade-point average at Dunbar High School in Washington is under the required 2.0.

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- He came to the University of Maryland when the basketball program was about to bottom out, barely competitive in the Atlantic Coast Conference while suffering through a nasty NCAA probation.He will complete his eligibility after a season that began here Monday ends in the spring, probably sometime in March and possibly in April. By then, the Terrapins might have finished the storybook they began writing last season.In a way, Wayne Bristol's college basketball career has mirrored Maryland's own roller coaster ride.

Here we go -- second week with these All-Stars. I hate Brooke's dress from mid-thigh down. It's like a cute dress got attacked by an unraveled loofah. Tom jokes that Pamela went home and left behind a "trail of body glitter.

Melissa and Tony didn't get to perform the jive during her regular season because of a rib injury -- the judges had to judge based on rehearsal footage.

In my review Tuesday night of Bristol Palin's new reality show on the Lifetime channel, I said that I had come to believe that the Palins were history. The mass audience no longer cared about Sarah, Bristol, Willow, Todd or any of the other characters in this screwy Alaska clan. Here's some of what I wrote about "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp": But you know what? I am sitting here at 1 a.m. typing this post, and even though it's been a very long day, my blood pressure is fine.

The most interesting aspect of Bristol Palin's new reality show on Lifetime is how much padding the producers had to do to fill the time between an hour's worth of commercials Tuesday night. The padding was so bad that they showed the one scene with any energy and conflict four times during the hour. And that's a scene that anyone who still has any interest in this sorry Alaskan clan has already seen for months on YouTube. You know, it's the one in which Bristol Palin and two of her friends (and a posse of reality TV producers and technicians)

I am too tired to go crazy about this. And there really are so many hugely more important things going on the world practically every day. But ... I cannot let the addition of HLN host Nancy Grace to the lineup of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" pass without comment. It is such an exquisite example of how calculating and exploitative prime-time network TV can be. Here is what I find debased about the selection of Grace: She probably got the job and the $500,000 that goes with it because she decided on her own that Casey Anthony was guilty and then, ignoring any sense of respect for the judicial system or fair play, pounded away on Anthony's alleged guilt day and night.

Remember how Michele Bachmann said the media wants to start a catfight between her and Sarah Palin that involves mud wrestling? Well, who needs the media when we have Bristol Palin? In an interview with PopEater, Bristol decided to get the match under way. How did she attack Bachmann? Did she criticize her economic policies? Her views on social issues? No. Worse. She accused Bachmann of ripping off her mom's style. "I think she dresses a lot like my mom," Bristol said.

It won't get nearly the attention of Brett Favre's tearful farewell, but NASCAR will be bidding adieu this weekend to one of its longtime stars. Dale Jarrett, 51, will take his last spin this weekend at the big race in Bristol, Tenn., in his No. 44 Toyota for Michael Waltrip Racing. Jarrett comes out of the North Carolina racing tradition and ran for 24 years and won 32 races, including seven in 1997 and three at the Daytona 500. His father, Ned, was a two-time Grand National champion, and his son, Jason, drove in the Busch Series.

Are we supposed to celebrate Kyle Busch's recent "triple play"? Or bemoan the fact he is cherry-picking easy victories against less-experienced and less-talented drivers? There are lines of demarcation in all sports, which is why you never will see the Florida Tuskers of the UFL taking on the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL. But it's a little different in NASCAR, which allows drivers to mix and match in three different series. It makes for an odd mix like we saw last month, when Busch completed an unprecedented sweep of three national races.

Bristol's Food City 500 is the last time this season that last season's top 35 results are locked into a race. Starting next week, the cutoff will be based on this year's standings and there's potential danger for two Penske teams. Kurt Busch is the only Penske driver who is safe in points standings at 10th. Brad Keselowski's No. 12 Dodge is in 33rd place and Sam Hornish Jr.'s No. 77 Dodge is in 31st place. Both cars fell after last week's race - Keselowski because Carl Edwards wrecked him for revenge.
