The athletic department began advertising the sale of tickets for fall and winter "Olympic sports" Friday . The school will continue to sell tickets for men's and women's soccer. Jeff Barker reported in June that the school was considering adding a fee to attend volleyball and wrestling matches, but  associate athletic director Ryan Bowles said nothing had been decided at the time.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. How would you rate the Maryland women's chances against Notre Dame in Sunday night's Final Four? Jeff Barker: The Terps will be the underdog, of course. Again. I think they can hang with the Irish - they did on Jan. 27, losing 87-83. In order to prevail, Maryland would need an even stronger game than it played in eliminating Louisville in the Elite Eight . That was a game in which Maryland was energized and willful, but the Terps were hardly flawless at the end. Maryland's advantage on Sunday is inside.

Maryland (0-0) at No. 12 California (0-0) Time: : 10 TV: : ESPN2 Radio: : 105.7 FM, 1300 AM Line: : California by 21 Series: : Maryland leads 1-0 Last meeting: : Maryland won, 35-27, last season Maryland offense vs. California defense: : Quarterback Chris Turner is always cool under pressure - Maryland is 6-2 against Top 25 teams in the previous two seasons. But his young offensive line, which starts former walk-ons Andrew Gonnella and Paul Pinegar on the right side, will be tested by a stellar defensive line.

He was a member of one of Landon's best lacrosse teams, the 2002 squad that went 20-0.

Navy (in Baltimore): Terps and Midshipmen have played only 20 times (Navy leads, 14-6), but there have been some memorable and intense games between teams that could become true rivals. Morgan State: Terps will face Bears on just four days' rest. It's the first time the universities -- located just 36 miles apart -- have played in football. Maryland fans sure remember losing to Bears in men's basketball in 2009. At West Virginia: Ralph Friedgen says he loves border rivalries, and this marks the resumption of one. Mountaineers will rely on young quarterback Geno Smith and a strong running game.

Et cetera Hopkins' Marcello loses in D-III wrestling title match Johns Hopkins senior 141-pound wrestler Paul Marcello lost a 2-1 decision to third-seeded Adam Sheley in the championship match at the NCAA Division III championships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sheley made a second-period escape and secured the title with riding time. After a scoreless first period, Sheley started in the down position and quickly worked his way free to grab a 1-0 lead. He nearly built that lead to 3-0 midway through the period as he caught Marcello's attempt at a double-leg takedown with a body lock, but Marcello fought free and the period ended with Sheley up 1-0. Marcello, who entered the tournament as the No. 5 seed, started on the bottom in the third period and worked to get free, but Sheley held him for nearly 90 seconds before surrendering the escape with 35 seconds on the clock.

Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Barker, producer-editor Jonas Shaffer and deputy sports editor David Selig weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What do you think of Mark Turgeon's request to the men's basketball team to relax and have more “fun” during games? Jeff Barker: People may scoff at it, but not me. It's not THE answer, of course. But playing with a more relaxed attitude - enjoying the game they've loved since they were kids - sure can't hurt.

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 surprising is it that the Maryland basketball team found its way onto ESPN.com's latest NCAA bracket, and what do the Terps need to do to stay there? Don Markus: Truthfully, I had to check the date of Joe Lunardi's latest post -- twice. It was hard to imaging that Mark Turgeon's team had done anything to deserve even the 12th seed that it was given.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What are the keys to Maryland's chances against Florida State, a more than two-touchdown favorite? Jeff Barker: I'm going to be watching the takeaways. The Terps have 13 of them this season, tying them for fifth in the nation. Their opportunism has characterized the first third of the defense's season. Maryland has created turnovers partly by forcing quarterbacks into rushed decisions.

Baltimore Sun reporters Don Markus and Jeff Barker and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Given the 2014 schedule announced Thursday by the Big Ten, how tough will Maryland's road back to respectability become? Don Markus: Maryland's $52 million exit fee from the Atlantic Coast Conference after next season seems exorbitant, but its indoctrination into the Big Ten is pretty steep in its own right. Everyone knew the Terps would be stepping up in class in football by switching leagues.
