Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. The Maryland football staff held a “get to know us better” event this week with the media. Does the school and its PR firm want us to see a new Randy Edsall? Jeff Barker: Not new. A little repackaged, maybe. The Maroon firm isn't trying to reinvent the coach. Good public relations firms know you don't try to make clients anything that they are not. You don't want them to appear forced or phony.

Normally, having one's picture on the front of a media guide is a badge of honor, a sign that one's game has evolved to the point where it's recognized on a broader scale. The nine players who grace the front and back of this year's Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball guide -- one from each team -- are to be forgiven if they see the honor a bit differently. Five of the nine have missed significant time this season because of injury or personal issues, and one of them, Clemson's Erin Baath, is returning to action after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in her knee.

COLLEGE PARK -- Even without its two midfield stalwarts, the No. 1-ranked Maryland men's soccer team was too much for UCLA yesterday. On rain-soaked Ludwig Field, the Terrapins dominated throughout a 4-1 victory over No. 10 UCLA, one of seven Top 25 teams on their schedule. Maryland (3-0) played without both Maurice Edu (back spasms) and A.J. Godbolt (flu-like symptoms), two of the three players featured on the cover of the team's media guide. Coach Sasho Cirovski said "there was no need to risk playing them this early in the year."

WASHINGTON - Like politicians eager not to alienate their constituents, the Washington Nationals quietly and diplomatically decided to include the records of the Washington Senators in their media guide and to pay homage to the old club in other ways. It was not an automatic decision. The Nationals - the former Montreal Expos beginning their first season in Washington - could have ignored the long-gone Senators and included only Expos marks. After all, the Senators have no link to the Nationals other than the fact that they once played in the same city and in 43-year-old RFK Stadium.

FORGOTTEN words:"There is no country in the world where so many provisions are established for them; so many hospitals receive them when they are sick and lame, founded and maintained by voluntary charities; so many almshouses for the aged of both sexes, together with a solemn law made by the rich to subject their estates to heavy tax for the support of the poor . . ."In short, you offered a premium for the encouragement of idleness, and you should not now wonder that it has had itseffect in the increase of poverty.

Known already for running one of the lighter training camps in the NFL, Ravens coach Brian Billick is becoming even more lenient. Starting Friday, veterans will have the option of going home after practice and meetings rather than having to stay at the team hotel in Westminster throughout the three-week period, as was the case in previous seasons. Most teams that have their training camps away from their normal facilities do not give players the option to leave on a regular basis. But Billick said he is trying to build an identity with this team, and he is depending on the honor system in observing the 11 p.m. curfew for those players who choose to go away.

Matt Schaub's Heisman campaign started with a tuxedo and a photo shoot and ended just 14 plays into the season. It didn't officially end, of course. Schaub could still technically win the trophy. He is still considered one of the best quarterbacks in the country, and when Virginia goes up against Maryland on Thursday night on national television, plenty of people will be watching. But for all intents and purposes, his Heisman hopes were finished when he separated his shoulder in Virginia's season opener against Duke.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Orioles left-hander Sid Fernandez, scratched yesterday from his scheduled start today, received a cortisone injection in his aching left knee, which might push his next start as far back as next Monday in New York.Fernandez has undergone surgery on both knees during his career and has taken two trips to the disabled list this season that were not related to his knees.He has made 10 injury rehabilitation starts in the past four seasons.The question often arises as to whether the condition of Fernandez -- who weighs way over the 225 pounds listed in the Orioles' media guide -- is linked to his weight.

Joey Dorsey had to work to keep his emotions in check. Now, he keeps hearing how far basketball can take him - if he'll play with more emotion. Dick Vitale lectured the kid last week about playing harder. John Calipari has announced that his Memphis team won't go far in March without some ferocity from the 6-foot-9, 260-pound freshman. Gary Williams is reminding Maryland to keep Dorsey's wide body off the glass tomorrow night, when the Terps meet the Tigers in the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic in Springfield, Mass.

CHICAGO -- Look for Gary Payton on the cover of the Dream Team media guide -- you won't find him. Try the posters of the team that are being distributed -- not there either. In fact, as the team went through its second day of practice yesterday, Payton was the only guy on the court without a name on his jersey."A lot of the stuff is being changed, a lot of the posters are adding my picture to it," Payton was saying yesterday. "But it doesn't bother me. I'm just here having fun."In case you missed it, the Seattle SuperSonics' Payton is the newest member of the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team, named to the squad Thursday.

It's a problem more than one football team has faced in Baltimore: How do you create your own identity while paying homage to the heritage of the Baltimore Colts?For the Ravens, the city's new NFL franchise, the answer is to maintain two record books.The team will come out next month with its official media guide, the statistical record book used by reporters and fans. It will include two sets of records: one for the Ravens and another for "Baltimore Pro Football History."The sleight of hand will create a new home for the passing records of John Unitas and defensive stats of Art Donovan without expropriating the history of the Indianapolis, nee Baltimore, Colts.
