Mark Turgeon wants to forget last season and focus instead on the players who stood before the Maryland basketball coach on Tuesday - a freshman class with youthful arrogance, frontcourt bulk and plenty of promise. Although he rarely confided it, Turgeon did not feel good about last season's prospects as the season began. In the coach's first year, the Terps didn't resemble a Turgeon team. They finished last in the Atlantic Coast Conference in defense, surrendering an average of 70.7 points a game.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Like many of Tom Huening's political crusades, the idea of fomenting a freshman class revolt among the huge new crop of congressional representatives who will be elected in November began as a long-shot, almost crackpot idea.Now, many of the more than 100 new representatives-elect from both parties may indeed be meeting for two days in late November at a Holiday Inn in Omaha, Neb., even before they get to Washington for their formal orientation. Their tentative agenda includes a call to chuck the seniority system, cut their own office budgets, and toss away many of the perks of office.

According to notes provided by Towson's sports information department, the Tigers are among the 20 youngest teams in Division I. That youth showed up in Tuesday night's 14-9 victory over visiting Navy. Freshman attackman Joe Seider scored two goals, freshman midfielder Ryan Drenner contributed a goal and an assist, and freshman midfielder Mike Lynch scored once. Add a pair of freshman short-stick defensive midfielders in Jack Adams (one ground ball) and Matt Wylly and freshman long-stick midfielder Tyler Mayes (one ground ball and two caused turnovers)

POTOMAC -- First things first. The name.It's Exree Hipp.That's right, Exree Hipp.He's got a sister, too. Her name? Exlee.The last name is a given, of course, and the first name is a family moniker that's been handed down through his father's side. It's a part of his Indian heritage -- the name Exree means "little brave.""His father's mother was full-blooded Cherokee," said his mother, Albertha. "You can see it in his cheeks."At 6 feet 7 1/2 , you can also see that Hipp, a senior at Harker Prep, is more than just a different name.

WASHINGTON -- Sam Rayburn must be spinning in his grave.The stern, domineering former House Speaker from Texas believed freshman lawmakers should be patient and mostly silent until they learned the legislative ropes. But this week in the opulent, wood-paneled Rayburn Room, President-elect Bill Clinton stood before the large crop of House Democratic freshmen and urged the new representatives to be "agents for constructive impatience."They didn't need any prodding. The 110-member freshman class, the largest since 1948, was already starting to throw its weight around Capitol Hill.

University of Maryland freshman Lexa Grobicki of Columbia didn't have far to go yesterday to get to College Park, but her mother wasn't taking any chances. With 400 more freshmen than usual arriving at the campus, Dana Grobicki figured the earlier her family drove down, the better. The only problem was, a lot of other people had the same idea. "I wanted to leave at 7, and we're just from Columbia. My daughter was eating cereal and reading the paper, and I said, `Don't you want to get going?

Attackman Matt Rambo garnered headlines with his four-goal, two-assist performance in No. 11 Maryland's 16-3 season-opening thumping of visiting Mount St. Mary's on Saturday. But he wasn't the only freshman to contribute in his collegiate debut. Midfielder Connor Cannizzaro had two goals and one assist in his first start, attackman Ben Chisolm (South River) added one goal, and midfielder Isaiah Davis-Allen collected two ground balls and took two shots as a member of the second line.

A new enemy is on the loose at the Naval Academy, a menace so insidious that it has driven midshipmen to step on the toes of waltz partners, forget to write thank-you notes and - whither decency? - attack a salad with the wrong fork. So military leaders have summoned the special forces: she of the upswept hair and the gently wagging finger. Code name: Miss Manners. "She's a recognized expert in the field, so why not go right for the top?" says Cmdr. Bill Spann, the Naval Academy spokesman.

The recent article "St. Mary's College: a cautionary tale for America's bloated higher education system," about the under-enrollment for next year's freshman class and why it is happening, struck me as badly written and simply untrue. I finished up my freshman year at St. Mary's this spring and feel that this article is simply wrong. As a high school senior I had absolutely no intention of going to a state school, as they seem too big and too impersonal. St. Mary's gave me the option to go to a much less expensive school than any of the six others I applied to, while still allowing me to live on a beautiful campus with a real community.

St. Mary's College of Maryland has only locked in about two-thirds of the students it needs for a full freshman class next school year, a shortfall that could cost the public liberal arts school $3.5 million in lost tuition. Though the school's admissions department is trying to fill about 150 vacant spots, the president warned faculty and staff to prepare for budget cuts. "All of the numbers on this campus are small numbers, so this has a large impact," said President Joseph R. Urgo, who since becoming president in 2010 has revamped the school's admissions department.

COLLEGE PARK - On their recent media day, some of the Maryland basketball players made like heavyweight boxers, flexing their biceps and striking poses of exaggerated toughness for photographers. But not Jake Layman. "Want me to smile?" Layman asked politely. He spoke so softly that a camera man had to strain to hear him. It's not that Layman, a 6-foot-8 freshman, doesn't have loads of ability and ambition. He's an integral part of a promising freshman class that will debut when the Terps host Indiana University of Pennsylvania in an exhibition game Friday night.

- Mark Turgeon doesn't relish the spotlight - he'd just as soon skip being introduced to crowds - but fortunately for the students at Friday night's Maryland Madness, the Terps men's basketball players don't share their coach's reserve. Turgeon's players - particularly the highly-touted freshmen - were happy to dance and preen and flex and dunk before several thousand fans at the annual preseason pep rally at Comcast Center. For the fans, it marked the first appearance of a spirited freshman class considered among Maryland's best since the one following the 2002 national championship season.

Brandon Young noticed right away that the Georgetown defender had his back turned to him on an inbounds pass. And later in DePaul's game against the Hoyas, Young's opponent did the exact same thing. “So ... the third time I looked at the bench ... and kind of like mumbled, 'I'm going to throw it off his back.' And I just did it,” Young said. The result was an easy layup for Young, who finished with 16 points in DePaul's 83-75 loss to Georgetown. That sequence of events - exercising caution before exhibiting confidence - serves as a microcosm of Young's development over his first two seasons with the Blue Demons.

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Air Force Academy has lost 25 percent of the freshman women in two of its last three classes, an attrition rate at least double that of Annapolis and West Point.Academy officials are uncertain whether there is any link between the high dropout rate and the widespread complaints of sexual harassment that have recently swirled around the school in Colorado Springs, Colo.However, Gen. Bradley C. Hosmer, the academy's superintendent, told the school's Board of Visitors at the group's annual meeting in Washington last week that female cadets may be leaving the school at higher rates because of the "pressures ** and tensions" of integrating women into a traditionally male environment.

The University of Maryland, College Park announced yesterday that a record number of students have applied for a shrinking numbers of spots in next year's freshman class. Applications are up 17 percent this year, to more than 27,000, after three years of increases, the college said in a statement. This year's increase reflects a national trend of rising applications at selective colleges and universities that is attributed to a bulge in the high school population, which is expected to begin to decline in two years.

The buzz surrounding Shaquille Cleare has dulled a bit since the 6-9 power forward from Houston announced more than a year ago that he was coming to Maryland. The spring and summer of 2012 had all been about whether his former AAU teammates, Andrew and Aaron Harrison, would join him here next year. Cleare, the centerpiece of Mark Turgeon's first recruiting class at Maryland, said he didn't seem to mind the spotlight going elsewhere. But now, with the Harrisons choosing defending national-champion Kentucky over the Terps, the buzz surrounding Cleare will certainly be back when he takes the court Friday night at Comcast Center for Maryland Madness.
