CHICAGO -- Maryland football coach Randy Edsall is aware of the attention he has gotten for his remark that the ACC is a "basketball conference. " He has also read the comments from Towson coach Rob Ambrose  -- a former assistant of his at Connecticut -- stating that recruits “no longer want to go to Maryland. They want to go to Towson.” But Edsall isn't overly concerned with either situation as Maryland gets ready to begin preseason practice Aug. 4. “All I want to do is do the best I can for our guys,” Edsall said Monday at Big Ten media days . “I just worry about what I think is best for us. I don't worry about what other people think, what other people say to me. I don't worry about that.

Affable Barry Alvarez is back coaching the Wisconsin Badgers football team, and we're all better for it. Speaking the university's athletic board Friday, he revealed another motivation for the Big Ten to go after Maryland and Rutgers: keeping Penn State. The fear was that shifting conference footprints might leave Penn State feeling alienated on the East Coast and tempted to join another conference. With Pitt to the west and Syracuse to the north, it doesn't take much imagination to see that Penn State could have looked at the ACC. Here's Barry: “That northeast corridor, all the way to the south, continues to grow…[Big Ten commissioner]

Towson University will announce today that it has been accepted as the 12th football-playing member of the Atlantic 10 Conference. "It's been a long process, but it will be worth the wait," football coach Gordy Combs said yesterday. "This is a very competitive league from top to bottom, and we'll be happy to be a part of it." The Atlantic 10 is considered the premier Division I-AA football conference in the East. Three members, William and Mary, Hofstra and Maine, made the NCAA playoffs from the league last season, and Massachusetts won the national title in 1998.

In a league that has placed six teams among the top 21 rankings nationally and has members that have beaten Division I-A teams Duke and Northwestern and one that lost by a point at resurgent Navy, it is no small achievement to be selected for an individual honor during the season. Talent abounds and competition is fierce in the Atlantic 10, widely considered the premier NCAA Division I-AA football conference, and a superior performance is mandatory to be named a Player of the Week.

COLLEGE PARK - The University of Maryland is in serious discussions to join the Big Ten, and the Board of Regents plans to meet Monday to discuss the proposed move, according to two sources with knowledge of the talks. The regents were told about the talks this weekend but had not received a written presentation as of early Saturday night. Not all of the regents favor leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference, and there is expected to be a lively discussion, said one official who declined to be named because the matter is ongoing.

An Irish blessing Brian Hamilton Chicago Tribune Some day Notre Dame may call upon the ACC for a service. It will want a football conference to call home, and the ACC will oblige, right after it's done making snow angels in the $100 bills layering its floor. Until then? This partnership is an Irish blessing. Nothing is more important to anyone in this deal than football independence is to Notre Dame. That remains viable. And now the program can infiltrate the ACC's postseason bowl structure, a critical security measure.

Keep the autonomy Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times No doubt things have changed since 1999, the last time the Big Ten made a run at Notre Dame and Notre Dame said no thanks. The Big Ten, with its growing television network, is more powerful now and Notre Dame football is less powerful. Since 1999, the football program has toiled in mediocrity as it fumbled through the last decade. It has bungled coaching hires and posted one lousy bowl win in Hawaii. But does that mean Notre Dame should be forced into joining a conference?

During the past three years in the Atlantic 10 football conference, Towson University made a total of three television appearances. This season, the Tigers' rising profile in the NCAA's Division I Football Championship Subdivision -- formerly known as Division I-AA -- will be rewarded with five TV games. Towson's recruiting coup is part of a five-year television contract announced by the league at yesterday's media day event at ESPNZone. The school will appear four times on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic and once on CN8. More important than the financial gain for Towson is the TV exposure.

College Park -- The Maryland men's basketball program ranked last in the Atlantic Coast Conference in the first Graduation Success Rate report, which was released yesterday by the NCAA, and only three conference programs graduated a lower percentage of athletes than the Terps' football team. The data are from a study of athletes who entered colleges between 1995 and 1998. The GSR is the NCAA's new method of calculating graduation rates, with the difference being that transfer students are now considered in the equation.
