There is, of course, one good and entirely selfish reason why Baltimore should embrace the concept of the NFL expanding by four teams instead of two: It means we get our team, period. Any shred of doubt is eliminated. No more maybe. Final score: Baltimore gets the ball. Go Rhavens!In other words, it's overwhelmingly, irrefutably, 100-percent-and-no-less self-serving for us to agree with the XTC four-team idea, which was posed publicly for the first time the other day by Jerry Jones, the Cowboys' owner and cultural icon.

When Jim Berkman says there is no Sam Bradman on Salisbury's roster, he was referring to the team's apparent lack of stars. Tufts coach Mike Daly certainly feels otherwise. Berkman said Tuesday morning that there is no Bradman or Kylor Berkman or Jason Coffman on the team, referring to the absence of a standout player on this year's squad. And that's fine with the veteran coach. “It's been a really enjoyable season,” Berkman said Tuesday morning during a conference call.

The top four teams in each state region will be seeded for the first time in this winter's girls and boys basketball state tournaments under a newly adopted pilot policy.The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association executive council approved the policy on Thursday.The experiment addresses objections raised often by coaches and others in high school basketball over pairings in regional tournaments being made by random draw, regardless of a team's regular-season record. The lottery draw began in the 1995-96 season.

Maryland has actually faced each team in this year's Final Four since the turn of the century. Here's a closer look at the Terps' all-time series with each of this year's national semifinalists.

Entering the final weekend of the Atlantic Coast Conference season, the race for the regular-season title is about as crowded as the Baltimore Beltway at 5 p.m.Only 1 1/2 games separate four teams -- first-place Duke (12-3); North Carolina State and Clemson, one game behind; and North Carolina, another half-game back -- after the Blue Devils defeated the Wolfpack last night."I can't remember it [the conference race] being this tight. You have four teams that have a really equal chance to win. It's incredible that it's come down to this," said Wolfpack coach Kay Yow yesterday.

Steve Fisher holds back when talking about his top-ranked Michigan Wolverines. He has no qualms about telling the world about his conference.The Big Ten has four teams in the preseason Associated Press college basketball poll, and Fisher's band of sophomores was on top, with Indiana fourth, Iowa 11th and Michigan State 20th. Three other leagues -- the Big Eight, Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East -- have four teams each, but Fisher wasn't biting."I think the conference will be much better than it has been in years.

C It took a while, but Purdue women's basketball coach Lin Dunn has found the only negative aspect to reaching the NCAA women's Final Four this weekend in Richmond, Va.For the first time in her seven years at Purdue, Dunn actually will be on duty, coaching the Boilermakers as they pursue their first national championship. That means she won't be available to entertain her colleagues in the lobby of the coaches' headquarters hotel."I just realized when we made the Final Four that the weekend would lose some of its vacation nature," Dunn said during a national telephone news conference.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The four teams that have made it through this year's NCAA tournament to today's national semifinals here at the RCA Dome have a number of things in common. But the biggest similarity could be in the fact that none will go down as a team for the ages.The North Carolina team that will meet Arizona in the first game isn't close to Dean Smith's two previous national championship teams. It lacks the overall talent of the 1982 team that included junior All-American James Worthy and freshman legend-in-the-making Michael Jordan.

Of the four teams in the Major League Lacrosse playoffs, the Chesapeake Bayhawks are the only one with four Steinfeld Trophies. But the No. 2 seed and reigning champion (9-5) is almost an afterthought as the lacrosse world eagerly waits to see whether the top-seeded Denver Outlaws can cap the league's first undefeated regular season with a championship at PPL Park in Chester, Pa., this weekend. And that's fine with Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle. “This weekend should be about Denver,” he said during a conference call Wednesday.

The mantra that defense wins championships could be tested this weekend. The four teams left in the NCAA tournament at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia feature some of the top offenses in Division I. Cornell leads the way, ranking second in the country with 14.6 goals per game. Duke is third with 13.8, Denver fifth with 12.7 and Syracuse 13th with 11.7. All four semifinalists rank in the top 10 in points per game and in the top 11 in shooting percentage. ESPN analyst Mark Dixon said he is not surprised that the teams still alive in the postseason have prolific offenses.

Here's another subplot in the build-up to what should be a free-for-all in the AL East this summer: Almost every team in the division can play the nobody-believed-in-us card. With the exception of maybe the Blue Jays, who generated the most offseason hype this winter, the teams in baseball's deepest division might all enter the season with a chip on their shoulder. Case in point: Yankees first baseman (and Mount St. Joe alum) Mark Teixeira suggesting that his $200 million team is embracing an underdog role this season.

As the final four teams prepare to battle for the two Super Bowl slots today, there are no surprise teams the way Carolina and Jacksonville were last year.Green Bay, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Denver all have Super pedigrees. They've been in 13 of the last 24 Super Bowls and have combined to make 17 Super Bowl appearances.The four teams have one other thing in common: All play in old stadiums and only one, San Francisco, has a new one approved.The NFL keeps saying its teams need new stadiums to compete, but the evidence has yet to prove that.

The Ravens run defense stiffened against the New York Giants' duo of Ahmad Bradshaw and David Wilson, limiting that pair of running backs to a combined 56 yards and just one touchdown on 12 carries Sunday. But considering that the Washington Redskins' Alfred Morris and the Denver Broncos' Knowshon Moreno had gained 129 and 118 yards, respectively, in back-to-back weeks, the Ravens know their No. 24 ranking in the NFL against the run still leaves a lot to be desired. Next up is the Cincinnati Bengals' BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who posted 91 yards and one score on 18 attempts in the Ravens' 44-13 rout in Week 1. With 1,094 yards this season, Green-Ellis has already surpassed his previous career-high total of 1,008 in 2010 when he played for the New England Patriots.
