Former Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams first walked into Cole Field House 50 years ago. A high school senior at the time, Williams had been invited to College Park from his home in South Jersey by coach Bud Millikan to watch the 1963 NCAA tournament East Regional. "I had seen the Palestra in Philadelphia, which was 9,000 [capacity], but this was 14,000," Williams recalled this week. "I walked in from the street on the top level. It kind of took your breath away. " As much as Williams liked the school and its coach, he fell in love with what was then an 18-year-old building that was among the best and biggest college basketball venues in the country.

On a recent visit, however, some of the food played third-string to the entertainment and libations.

COLLEGE PARK - A nearly 60-year-old basketball arena called Cole Field House was transformed into a hot, crowded, ear-deafening time capsule Friday night. It could have been 1969, the year Lefty Driesell arrived from Davidson filled with bluster and bravado and determined to make Maryland into "the UCLA of the East. " It could have been 1989, the year Gary Williams returned to his alma mater from Ohio State, vowing to rebuild a scandal-ridden, down-on-its-luck program. It could have been 2002, when the Terps won their first national championship a few weeks after closing the building with an unbeaten home season.

A planned field house at the Naval Academy will be named for the college's first African-American graduate.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. How significant is it that former Terps coaches Gary Williams and Lefty Driesell are both expected to be at Cole Field House for Maryland Madness tonight? It's very significant. For a long period, there wasn't much unity between Driesell-era players and Maryland during William's tenure as coach. Driesell was forced out after the 1986 death of star player Len Bias, and many of his players and supporters believe he never got his due. Some kept their distance from the school.

If you haven't been to College Park in, say, a decade, this is what Cole Field House looks like. No, really, for the most part, it does. But ... how could that happen, you ask? Simple: Once Comcast Center debuted in 2002, Cole Field House became something of an athletic relic. It is still a stage for sporting battles, as you can see, but now they get only as must-see as inter-fraternity soccer games. Not exactly Maryland-Duke. But with Maryland Madness moving to Cole Field House for Friday's unofficial season kickoff, the Terps' old home is getting the extreme makeover it deserves (and needs, too, I suppose)

Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon has done his best to embrace the past while building for the future. He has forged relationships with his two most celebrated predecessors, Gary Williams and Lefty Driesell. He has done the same with many former players. Now the Terps will be stepping back in time for Maryland Madness - and, in coming years, perhaps more. On the same day the athletic department announced that the preseason event will be be held at Cole Field House on Oct. 18, Turgeon said Tuesday that he hopes to hopes to play at least one regular-season game at the building every year.

The demise of Towson University baseball is testimony to the sad reality of college athletics ("Angry coach says officials kept quiet about folding team," Oct. 4). It's not about what is best for the student, the full experience of college, the growth of the young people. It's about chasing the dollar. The baseball program has prospered at Towson University despite the lack of support or acknowledgment from the administration. It has been the hard work of one man, the coach, who has authored the success and reputation it has realized.

Brown, who broke the color barrier at the Naval Academy and was its first African-American graduate in 1949, died Tuesday of cancer at Springhouse of Silver Spring Assisted Living. He was 85.
