Where was coverage in The Sun about the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hearings going on in D.C.? Oh, since another former Obama administration official invoked the Fifth Amendment with regard to another example of waste and abuse in this government culture without a "tone from the top," we can't be let in on that. Shame on you. Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville

Stevenson's first loss of the season - a 31-10 thumping by Middle Atlantic Conference foe Lycoming on Saturday - dropped the Mustangs out of any mention from the latest American Football Coaches Association Division III poll. But as the program enjoys its upcoming bye week, coach Ed Hottle said there is still much to be optimistic about - including retaining a shot at what would be the school's first league championship in football. “All of our goals and things we want to accomplish are still very much out there for us,” he said Wednesday.

An early goal by No. 4 Loyola Blakefield's Gavin Barger put top-ranked McDonogh in the unfamiliar position of playing from behind for the first time this season. The Eagles responded by dominating possession and then scoring a goal in each half for a 2-1 victory in a key Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game. Nicolas Brown had a goal and an assist for McDonogh, which has been scored on just three times in nine games this season. "We talked all year how there was going to be difficult situations in this league this year," Eagles coach Brandon Quaranta said.

Watch West Virginia Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel If you're looking for a sleeper in this week's conference tournaments, look no further than West Virginia. With the possibility of 11 teams making it into the NCAA tournament, it makes perfect sense a team from the Big East would make the most noise. The Mountaineers are on a roll, winning four of their last five games, including victories over Notre Dame, Connecticut and Louisville. West Virginia is very physical, and that starts with Kevin Jones.

Gov. Martin O'Malley told a national gathering of gays and lesbians in Baltimore on Sunday that he would fight to make Maryland the seventh state in the country to allow same-sex marriage, but he expressed regret for his wife's choice of words in endorsing the cause last week. Appearing before some 3,000 people at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force "Creating Change" conference at the Convention Center Hilton, the governor vowed to press for passage of a marriage equality bill in the General Assembly this year.

For the fourth year in a row, Goucher will enter the Landmark Conference Tournament as the top seed. Saturday's 13-8 victory over Scranton ensured the Gophers (14-1 overall and 5-0 in the league) of that distinction. But it's an achievement that coach Kyle Hannan avoided trying to place too much of an emphasis on after the win against the Royals. “I'm glad we beat Scranton,” he said. “We still have another Landmark game. That tournament starts quite a ways down the road, a week-and-a-half away.

Chants of "Let's go Maryland" began to break out at Indiana's Memorial Stadium around the midpoint of the fourth quarter. Most of the Hoosiers fans had already cleared out by that point. The Terps will face some great challenges in the coming weeks. But Maryland was dominant in its first conference game as a member of the Big Ten, beating Indiana, 37-15, just a week after the Hoosiers upset No. 18 Missouri. Indiana (2-2) entered Saturday as four-point favorites. But the Terps (4-1)

COLLEGE PARK - The transformation took place late last season, on what started out as a dreary November afternoon at Virginia Tech's Lane Stadium. Maryland went into Blacksburg thought to be no more than road kill for the Hokies and emerged with a bit of a swagger after a 27-24 overtime victory. When the 2014 Terps make their Big Ten debut Saturday at Indiana, there is a growing confidence about playing on the road. Maryland (3-1) has won four straight true road games, including wins at South Florida on Sept.

Offering an emphatic response to what he perceived as an attack on his organization's integrity, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on Monday rebutted a recent report saying that the organization engaged in a “pattern of misinformation and misdirection” following Ray Rice's arrest in February. In an unusual, nearly 50-minute news conference that brought the national media to the team's Owings Mills training facility, Bisciotti again acknowledged the organization's faults in how it handled the fallout of the former running back's assault on his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti spent nearly 50 minutes in front of the media Monday afternoon, trying again to dispel the notion that the team has been less than forthcoming in its handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal. This time, it was to specifically dispute a recent report that portrayed the Ravens as a team that knew more than it let on about the severity of Rice's attack on then-fiancee Janay Palmer and lobbied to limit the disciplinary action handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

After a string of five losing seasons, Mount Saint Joseph's football players resolved during the offseason to create a new identity for their Gaels program this fall - one that would bring winning back. Their work ethic combined with a more experienced team and schematic changes on both sides of the ball have the Gaels off to a 4-0 start - their best opening since 1995. "Based on the fact that we've doubled our wins from last season, team morale is definitely at an all-time high," senior lineman Jimmy Moore said, "and getting a couple wins at Bullis and Dover (Del.)

At the beginning of what would become another tumultuous week, Ravens coach John Harbaugh made an observation about the Ray Rice fallout that will never sound as prescient as it does now. "We're probably not going to get away from it, and probably rightly so," Harbaugh said Monday. As the Ravens prepared for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, their organization remained under significant scrutiny for what it did and didn't do in its handling of the Rice situation. The Ravens terminated the contract of the Pro Bowl running back on Sept.

Deep Big East is beast David Teel Newport News Daily Press We love the ACC's storied past and envy the Mountain West's Las Vegas locale. But any conference tournament in which Georgetown is the No. 8 seed is an embarrassment of riches. Such is life in the bloated Big East, where all 16 teams descend upon Madison Square Garden. Three consecutive days of noon-to-midnight basketball will test any fan's endurance, but when the fare includes Syracuse, Villanova and Pittsburgh, and Wesley Johnson, Scottie Reynolds and Greg Monroe, it's worth it. Notre Dame, Seton Hall, South Florida and perhaps Marquette need quality showings to establish their NCAA tournament credentials.

Players on the McDonogh field hockey team say they never openly talked about last year's overtime loss to Archbishop Spalding in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference final. In Thursday's rematch, however, the Eagles left little doubt that it was on the top of their minds. Led by a goal and assist by junior Brindi Griffin, No. 2 McDonogh stormed out of the gate to build a three-goal lead early in the second half, then held off a furious comeback attempt by top-ranked Spalding to preserve a 3-2 win, ending the Cavaliers' 17-game winning streak.

COLLEGE PARK - The players on Maryland's men's and women's soccer teams can't look at their respective opponents Friday any different than they have others they have faced this season. But the Terps understand the significance that these games hold. When the 12th-ranked men's team faces Michigan in Ann Arbor and the women's team plays host to Rutgers at Ludwig Field, it will mark Maryland's first in-conference competition of any kind as a member of the Big Ten. The school officially joined the league in July after 61 years in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
