The presidential election of 2012 and Maryland's gubernatorial election of 2014 have much in common rhetorically in terms of their approaches to issues and spin, the two key components of political persuasion. The 2012 presidential election pitted a likable African-American Democratic incumbent president against a white, older Republican who had been out of politics for years. The 2014 Maryland gubernatorial race features a likable incumbent African-American Democratic lieutenant governor against a white, older Republican who has been out of politics for years.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall's goal this week was to keep the pre-game preparation as routine as possible. The Maryland football coach told his team that Ohio State is just another opponent, that the Buckeyes have good players but the Terps do too. Nothing changed about Maryland's practice schedule. Edsall even turned down numerous interview requests because he did not want his players to see him doing anything different than he would during a normal week. But Edsall, his players and the rest of the program recognize the significance of Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State.

COLLEGE PARK -- For each inductee he introduced Friday night, emcee Chick Hernandez ran through a list of that person's accomplishments at the University of Maryland. For most who were announced, the 400 people gathered at tables in the Heise Room at the Samuel Riggs Alumni Center would give a standard applause as the inductee was led from the back corner of the room to the front and eventually to their seat. But when Hernandez introduced Len Bias, the 400 rose from their seats and clapped for an extended period as members of Bias' family - his parents and two of his siblings - was led to the front of the room.

Back for a second season, we'll be previewing each of Maryland's football games by conducting a Q&A with a reporter who covers the Terps' next opponent. This week, we traded emails with Bill Rabinowitz , Ohio State beat reporter for The Columbus Dispatch. Be sure to check out  more of their coverage here  before the Terps and Buckeyes kick off Saturday at noon for the first Big Ten game at Byrd Stadium. Tracking the Terps: Ohio State wasn't overly impressive when the Buckeyes came out this way to open against Navy, and J.T. Barrett looked like a freshman through the first two weeks of the season.

Maryland has yet to make a decision on whether quarterback C.J. Brown will play against No. 20 Ohio State on Saturday. However, Brown has been practicing this week and has looked good in practice, according to sources. Brown suffered a sprained left wrist during the Terps' win over Indiana last week. If Brown does not play, Maryland will turn to backup quarterback Caleb Rowe, who was 12 of 18 for 198 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions after replacing Brown against the Hoosiers.

Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, already a known Annapolis arts destination, solidified that role last Sunday with a celebration unveiling the results of its $1.6 million renovation - a project that includes 543 new seats, an orchestra pit, stage extension and improved acoustics. Brief performances were offered by Maryland Hall's four resident companies: Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Annapolis Opera, Annapolis Chorale and Ballet Theatre of Maryland. The 170 voices of the Annapolis Chorale, together with the chamber orchestra, opened the concert auspiciously with "O fortuna" from "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff.
