When the University of Maryland allowed men's lacrosse coach Dave Cottle to resign May 23 after nine seasons, there were some who thought athletic director Debbie Yow was either gutsy or out of her mind. There was no middle ground. In the weeks after the resignation, it appeared to be the latter. But when the Terps hired Harvard coach John Tillman to replace Cottle on Tuesday, Yow might have scored a major victory. Only time will tell whether Tillman is a capable replacement, but the pedigree and potential are excellent.

New Maryland men's lacrosse coach John Tillman did not think of himself as a strong contender for the job when Dave Cottle's contract was not renewed after the team's loss to eventual runner-up Notre Dame in last month's NCAA tournament quarterfinals. In fact, the third-year Harvard coach, a longtime Navy assistant, did not even consider himself a candidate. "I'm kind of a focused guy, and I was so focused on doing everything I could do for Harvard," Tillman, 41, recalled Wednesday.

Harvard head coach John Tillman agreed Tuesday evening to become the ninth head coach at Maryland. The paperwork is still being completed, but an announcement could come as early as Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the situation. Terps athletic director Debbie Yow and senior associate athletic director Michael Lipitz, who heads the university's search committee, did not respond to e-mail inquiries. A school spokesman declined comment, citing the absence of official paperwork required before confirming such a hire.

University of Maryland Baltimore County President Freeman A. Hrabowski III added an honorary degree from Harvard to his list of awards on Thursday morning, hailing it as recognition of his university's profound strides in the academic world. "The respect our colleagues at Harvard have for UMBC as a research university is clear," he said. In bestowing the degree, Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust praised Hrabowski as "a galvanic force in his university's ascent." Among those who shared the honor and the stage with Hrabowski?

While the lock on Supreme Court nominees by Harvard and Yale is to be deplored ("A supremely limited pool of high court candidates," May 16), it will be hard to break. For over 130 years there was not a Jewish justice on the Supreme Court and very few Catholic ones. However if Elena Kagan is confirmed, there will be six Catholic justices and three Jewish ones. For many years the WASP establishment controlled our government, and now that is a scenario of the past. For about the same time, entry into elite universities was restricted for minorities, and this too has changed.

If confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, Elena Kagan will bring greater diversity to the court by adding a third woman. What she will not bring is educational diversity. Her confirmation will leave the court entirely composed of former law students at either Harvard or Yale. President Barack Obama's decision to select a nominee from one of these two schools is particularly disappointing as a replacement for Justice John Paul Stevens — an iconic figure on the court who was also its only graduate from an alternative institution (Northwestern)

David Fincher has made the kind of growth leaps from "The Panic Room" to "Zodiac" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" that Curtis Hanson made from "The River Wild" to "L.A. Confidential" and "Wonder Boys." When directors come of age, they don't just take on genres or literary adaptations: they explode or transform them. "Zodiac" was one of the most original and upsetting of real-life crime films, and "Button" was a one-of-a-kind masterpiece: a lyrical comedy- drama about aging and death that had more life than in it than any other movie last year.
