Rules are rules Brian Hamilton Chicago Tribune There are a lot of nonsensical and/or hypocritical NCAA rules, and one certainly can stand on a soapbox and shriek that punishing players for breaking those rules is just as hypocritical and silly. But rules are rules, and private encounters with prostitutes on a yacht are private encounters with prostitutes on a yacht, so something has to give here. If Miami is interested in never vacating the 2011 season, it must sit any player in question until he's cleared.

When Ali Brennan finished her soccer career at Miami, she wasn't quite ready to give up college sports. "My mom brought up the idea about a fifth year," Brennan said, "and when I was a freshman, there was a senior at Miami, Jimmy Graham, who was a four-year basketball player and he played a fifth year for the football team, and now he plays for the Saints in the NFL. That really intrigued me. " The McDonogh graduate planned to earn an...

OXFORD, Ohio - With a blinding sun and a mostly empty Yager Stadium at his back, Ravens coach John Harbaugh peered into a crowd that contained so many people he wanted to thank. To his right were his parents, wife and daughter, along with other members of his extended family. To his left were about 30 of his former teammates at Miami University (Ohio). Straight ahead were a couple of rows of football fans, many either wearing Miami red or Ravens purple. It was exactly how Harbaugh wanted to commemorate a memorable and rewarding weekend.

Cautious sanctions Dieter Kurtenbach Sun Sentinel It'd be foolhardy to expect the NCAA to let Miami to skate by on time served. But when they come out, I expect the sanctions to be cautious and reeking of deflected insecurities. The NCAA handcuffed itself when President Mark Emmert said Wednesday that minimal evidence was acquired through illegal means. I'm not buying that. Emmert would have tossed out the minimal evidence and sent Miami the notice of allegations if that were the case.

With the 198th pick in the 2012 NFL draft (sixth round), the Ravens drafted speedy Miami wide receiver Tommy Streeter. The Ravens have said they hoped to add a wide receiver during the draft, and Streeter is a tall vertical target that, in theory, would help them expand their developing downfield passing attack. A hair under 6 feet 5, Streeter has excellent downfield speed for his size. At the scouting combine, he ran the 40-yard dash at 4.40 seconds, which was among the top times among wide receivers.

Stacy Keibler was along for the ride as Demi Moore kept the tabloids entertained this week in Miami. The New York Post reports this morning that Keibler and Moore partied like champs Wednesday at Art Basel, first at a dinner party hosted by Chanel -- where apparently Moore befriended a stray cat, letting it sit on her lap during the meal, the Post reported. Then, the two headed off to an after party where, according to the Post, guests included Lenny Kravitz and Will Ferrell. And then, approaching 1 a.m., it was off to yet another bash at a karaoke bar. Keibler and Moore reportedly danced and Keibler tossed back tequila shots.

On paper, Maryland's two biggest wins this season have come against Notre Dame and Miami. The 78-71 win over the Irish at Verizon Center in the BB&T Classic gave the fans hope for this season, but it came against a tired team on the back end of a West Coast trip trying to figure out how to play the rest of the season without its leading scorer. The 75-70- win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday night at Comcast Center came against a team that had won six of its past eight games and had beaten Duke in Durham, N.C., two weeks ago. The team the Terps were facing, and the way they came back by scoring 10 straight points in a game-closing 14-4 run, was the reason their win over Miami was the first signature win of the Mark Turgeon era. Here are some thoughts about how things played out: If the win over the Irish showed Terrell Stoglin's talents as a big-time scorer, the win over Miami showed that the sophomore point guard is buying into Turgeon's season-long struggle to turn his best player into a team player.

I stick with my original opinion of the Miami housewives -- if Elsa is in an episode, it's probably a good episode. Marysol's mother Elsa, opens the episode by threatening to hit a drag queen with her pocket book. Leah finally confronts Marysol and surprisingly apologizes to Marysol.  But Marysol doesn't accept her apology or the invitation to her gala. Adriana confronts Karent (finally) after complaining about "beating her to the tweet" for the last two episodes. Adriana tells Karent she interrupts, is a copycat and thrives on the spotlight. Alexia, a housewife from last season who chose not to be on the show this season because her son was in a very serious car accident, agrees with Adriana.

John Harbaugh was told last offseason that his alma mater, Miami University of Ohio, planned on erecting a statue of him to celebrate his status as a Super Bowl-winning head coach. Now, Harbaugh knows exactly when it will happen. The school announced Wednesday that Harbaugh, a 1984 graduate of Miami University, will be inducted into the Cradle of Coaches Association and immortalized with a statue at Yager Stadium on Saturday, April 19. The statue, which will be erected in the Cradle of Coaches Plaza, will be a bronze, full-body image depicting Harbaugh coaching on the sideline during the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

COLLEGE PARK -- Dez Wells had done the same thing before the season even started, during a private scrimmage at Comcast Center against Villanova. Back then, the Maryland season was full of promise. On Wednesday night, the Terps were bordering somewhere between despair and desperation. A 10-point lead on Miami, built on defense and Wells' second-half scoring binge, was gone. This time, a 3-point shot by Wells with 5.9 seconds remaining not only lifted the Terps to a much-needed 74-71 victory, but it provided the 6-foot-4 junior guard with the signature moment of his basketball career.

COLLEGE PARK - The critics who have been on Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon this season for his team's stagnant motion offense and soft man-to-man defense were silenced - at least for the moment - in the aftermath of Wednesday's 74-71 over Miami . Not only did the Terps move better without the ball for most of the game, but so did the ball itself, leading to the second-best shooting night (56 percent) of the season and one of the best halves of shooting (69.6 percent in the second half)

MIAMI -- When Dennis Erickson went to sleep this morning at around 3:30 a.m., he knew that his top-ranked University of Miami football team had at least a share of this season's national championship.Erickson said he also had an inkling that a share would be all the 12-0 Hurricanes would get, that the University of Washington (12-0) would get its piece of college football's most coveted prize."I had a feeling it was going to be a split," Erickson said a few hours later. "I had a feeling we weren't going to win the coaches' poll.

MIAMI -- It was not pretty. It was not the kind of performance that evoked memories of championship teams past at the University of Miami or even suggested that the Hurricanes might come back from the abyss to win one this season.But it was enough.Enough to beat their bitter rival, Florida State, 34-20, before a sellout crowd of 77,010 at the Orange Bowl last night. Enough to send the third-ranked Seminoles, the defending national champions, back to Tallahassee with their first defeat since last year's loss at Notre Dame.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but in this space this year, we will provide a look ahead, rather than back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what coach Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to watch as the Terps get ready to play Miami on Wednesday night at Comcast Center.

Both Maryland and Miami lost close games at home to ranked teams Saturday, but their respective coaches reacted differently to the defeats as the teams prepared to play each other Wednesday night in College Park. Mark Turgeon, whose Terps lost 83-79 to No. 20 Pittsburgh , thought his team played better against the Panthers than they did in losing at North Carolina State on Monday. In that game, Maryland led by nine at haltime and by 11 points early in the second half. Turgeon was pleased by the offensive progress he thought his team had made against one of the league's better defensive teams, shooting 48 percent from the field, scoring 20 more points than it had in a loss at Pittsburgh on Jan. 6, going to the free throw line 30 times.
