Tucker Carlson was an obvious out the first week on Dancing With the Stars 3. But Shanna Moakler? It's pretty clear that, at least for now, the voting is all about fan base and not so much the dancing. How else to explain that Jerry Springer's still in it?

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.

There are classical musicians, rock musicians, pop musicians, jazz musicians -- and then there is Elvis Costello, a genre unto himself. For the better part of three decades, the British-born, severely bespectacled Costello has been a remarkable source of interesting, sophisticated, surprising music and music-making, earning a broad fan base with his skills as a singer/songwriter and guitarist.

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 .

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.
