ESPN personality, Terps athletics supporter and noted fan base evaluator Scott Van Pelt was in College Park on Saturday for Maryland's 27-26 win over Virginia . He was happy with the result, of course. He was not happy with the small swath of students who saw it. Starting at the 35:30 mark of Monday's “SVP and Russillo” broadcast, you can hear his rant on what it means to be a fan, and why Saturday's 41,077 attendance figure was such a disappointment. Or you can read the transcript below: Van Pelt: I'm probably going to get in trouble back in College Park for this one, but some things need to be said.

In order to become truly happy, Canadian country veteran Terri Clark knew she had to leave the one relationship she had worked so hard to build - the one with BNA Records, the Nashville-based label owned by Sony. After spending 14 years on a major label, Clark announced in 2008 that her constant pursuit for a hit record had worn her out, creatively. Grateful for her past success but more than ready to forge on independently, Clark left BNA and finally felt liberated. She said it was no surprise that after her announcement to leave BNA, the subsequent album - 2009's "The Long Way Home," released on her own Baretrack Records - immediately poured out of her. Three years later, Clark says leaving BNA was the best career decision she ever made, no matter how many records she sells.

In some ways, the Browns were asking for this when they went with such a young roster. By this, I mean losing. By this, I mean agitation. By this, I mean asking a beaten-down, impatient fan base to just wait because going young is the best way to build a team. It is the wisest road, assuming the young players have talent.

It has to be one of the trickiest transitions in pop music. In the past several years, O.A.R. has made the jump from successful jam band to radio-friendly rock outfit. The band once known for the nine-minute acoustic epic "That Was a Crazy Game of Poker" - a smash on the college circuit - is now the band behind the platinum-selling rock single "Shattered." Back when O.A.R. first got together in Rockville in the mid-1990s, there was a clear-cut career path for musicians: Most bands signed to major labels, cranked out a couple of hits, developed a fan base and then drew on that fan base.

W hen Michael Oher takes the field as a Baltimore Raven this fall, a national audience of readers and moviegoers even bigger than the Ravens' fan base will be cheering for him. The amazing story behind his rise to football stardom will fill the bestseller shelves at bookstores on Oct. 12, with a new edition of Michael Lewis' powerhouse piece of nonfiction "The Blind Side." And if all goes according to plan, it will also pack movie theaters on Nov. 20, when writer-director John Lee Hancock's movie version hits theaters, starring newcomer Quinton Aron as Oher and Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw as Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy - the wealthy, white, conservative, evangelical couple who devoted themselves to the happiness and success of "Big Mike," a black kid from the meanest streets of Memphis, Tenn.
