It took only the first release of the Bowl Championship Series ratings this week for a prominent coach to voice displeasure. Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville's once-beaten Tigers are sitting at No. 4, a notch above undefeated West Virginia, but he doesn't like his chances at a national title because of the ratings system. "Every year, it's going to be like this," said Tuberville, whose team gave Florida its first loss last weekend. "Until we get a playoff, the SEC's going to be on the outside looking in."

There was a reunion of sorts for nearly 9,000 Bengalis yesterday at the Baltimore Convention Center. At the ethnic group's 24th annual North American Bengali Conference, there were vendors' booths, movie screenings and moderated discussions about the culture. But for many, the most important business of the weekend event, which ends today, was catching up with old friends. Madhumanti Maitra, a popular news anchor in Calcutta, was walking quickly across the convention center when she spotted a familiar face out of the corner of her eye and stopped to give Potomac resident Dipankar Bhaumik a hug. The pair occasionally meet in India, but they hadn't seen each other in about a year.

Two months ago, the McDonogh girls lacrosse players never thought about going through the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference regular season unbeaten. That seemed a high goal for a team that had to rebuild a good bit, but yesterday the No. 2 Eagles (17-1) put the finishing touch on a 12-0 A Conference record with a 9-6 win over No. 7 John Carroll in Bel Air. "It's amazing," senior midfielder Kirstyn Atkinson said. "At the beginning of the season - not saying that I doubted us but - it was a big change from last year.

Halfway through its Colonial Athletic Association schedule, Towson is 3-0 in the league and tied with No. 12 Penn State for first place in the conference. As euphoric as the team's rebound from an 0-3 start may seem, coach Shawn Nadelen said the players aren't giving into the temptation of assuming that they have locked up a berth in the four-team CAA tournament. “Being 3-0 definitely helps our chances, but I think the CAA is still wide open,” he said Monday evening. “There are a lot of games left and we're only halfway through our conference play.

North Carroll girls basketball coach Bernie Koontz knows it's simply a matter of time before his team celebrates its next conference victory. Last night against visiting Urbana, however, the Panthers followed a familiar story line - poor shooting, spotty rebounding and yet another loss. Their 64-31 defeat was their 18th straight in Central Maryland Conference play. "I think a lot of it right now is psychological," Koontz said. "They're playing some of these teams that they know beat them last year.

Severn lacrosse coach John Tucker has led his fair share of top programs and athletes. While he was coaching at Gilman and Loyola, Tucker guided four teams to Baltimore private schools conference titles - a feat that usually means that team is considered the best high school squad in the country by lacrosse aficionados. On those teams, he has coached some of the best players to ever step on an area lacrosse field, including recent Princeton standouts Ryan Boyle and Damian Davis at Gilman.

The Houston Texans lost their top tackler two weeks ago when middle linebacker Brian Cushing went down with a season-ending knee injury. A week later, they were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers, 42-24, on their home field as Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes, the Texans couldn't run the football and their special teams faltered. Earlier that day, the Ravens outlasted the mistake-prone Dallas Cowboys, 31-29. In the process, they lost their leading tackler (Ray Lewis) and best cornerback (Lardarius Webb)

To those who follow college athletics only casually, the announcement last week that the University of Maryland will henceforth award athletic scholarships on a multi-year basis instead of year-to-year may sound like a minor change. But in fact, it's a major reform that is not only welcome but is likely to attract a legion of imitators. From the effort to unionize athletes at Northwestern University as school employees (a year-long struggle that remains ongoing) to the legal fight over whether the NCAA can profit from the images of athletes in video games and elsewhere without compensating them, how colleges and universities treat athletes — or mistreat them — has sparked a pitched battle of late.

Going to St. Petersburg: Its RPI is better than Auburn's. It played a tougher schedule. It couldn't stack up to top-ranked Duke, but who can? This is the year for Maryland to end decades of postseason frustration.Team on the rise: Creighton was 15-8 three weeks ago and given little chance of making the field. It won its last six games, the final three to win the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. That league landed three bids, as many as the Atlantic Coast Conference, and the Blue Jays could give the Terps trouble in the second round.
