Were you surprised that junior point guard Pe'Shon Howard plans to transfer? Jeff Barker: No. It's too bad it didn't work out better for him - he's a smart, sensitive guy. But it wasn't surprising.

Shortly after the NCAA ruled him ineligible for Division I competition following an investigation of coursework he completed at Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass., Cassell left Maryland for Marianna, Fla., enrolling at JUCO basketball powerhouse Chipola College.

The crowd at Arrowhead Stadium booed Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel throughout the Ravens' 9-6 win on Sunday, and someone paid for an airplane to fly above the stadium before the game with a banner that called for Cassel to be benched. But some Chiefs fans crossed the line of decency when they cheered after Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata knocked Cassel out of the game with a hard hit in the fourth quarter. And in the locker room after the game, Chiefs offensive tackle Eric Winston, who was scheduled to visit the Ravens in free agency this past offseason but never got out of Kansas City, ripped Chiefs fans for their actions.

It looks like we're going to see Cassel, but who knows?” “You prepare for their starter,” inside linebacker Jameel McClain said.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland  sports. What does the addition of Notre Dame mean to the ACC and to Maryland? Jeff Barker: For the ACC, it means a level of comfort - or at least as much comfort as any conference can have in an era in which so much seems to be changing. The comfort lies in knowing that the ACC is adding and not subtracting. And it's been able to add quality.
