The scholarships, postmarked from places like Maryland and Mississippi, South Carolina and Southern California, West Virginia and Wisconsin, landed at Henry Poggi 's doorstep. Each letter attempted to convince one of the top defensive tackle recruits in the nation why his four collegiate years would be best spent at its university. Forgive Poggi, but he was thinking bigger. The Gilman defensive tackle committed to Michigan on Monday morning, choosing the Wolverines over finalists Alabama and Tennessee.

COLLEGE PARK -  On Saturday, Michigan coach Brady Hoke failed to immediately remove quarterback Shane Morris from the Wolverines' game against Minnesota despite Morris displaying concussion-like symptoms after a blow to the head. He then allowed Morris to re-enter the game a few plays later before finally being pulled from the game for good. In the days since, Hoke and Michigan have been the target of heavy criticism on a national level, and it did not help that Wolverines athletic director Dave Brandon acknowledged in a statement sent out early Tuesday morning that Morris has since been diagnosed with a probable mild concussion . Without critiquing Hoke or Michigan, Terps coach Randy Edsall laid out the team's concussion protocol Tuesday when asked how Maryland approaches players who display concussion-like symptoms.

POSITION-BY-POSITION MATCHUPS* SMALL FORWARDCincinnati: Herb Jones, 6-4, 211, Sr.Undersized, but don't underestimate him. Jones, most outstanding player of Midwest Regional, is Bearcats' top scorer (18.2 ppg) and rebounder (7.1 rpg), a relentless attacker at both ends. Explosive quickness to hole, but can also step outside and hit a three, as evidenced by his 42 percent shooting behind line. Plays hounding pressure defense all over court. Doesn't say much, but is team's emotional firebrand anyway.

COLLEGE PARK  -   Neither a festive crowd of an announced 6,000-plus at Ludwig Field nor the first Big Ten Conference home game against a nationally ranked opponent could awaken the slow-starting Maryland men's soccer team from its season-long scoring slumber Friday night. After falling behind 16th-ranked Michigan State in the first nine minutes, the suddenly unranked Terps had a few legitimate chances to find the net. A header hit the post in the first half, and a last-ditch header was cleared off the goal line by a Spartans defender with under a minute to go. Though Maryland outplayed the Spartans (4-1-1)

Side with the family Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel Now that the nation has been released from Jim Harbaugh's evil clutches, another name that should be considered for Michigan and in lesser part, Stanford, should be former NFL coach Jon Gruden Gruden won a Super Bowl with the Buccaneers and coached in Oakland. And he has expressed interest in returning to college if the price is right. That probably would make him a more logical choice for the less-thrifty Wolverines.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan women's basketball coach Cheryl Burnett retired yesterday, ending a lackluster stint with the Wolverines after helping Southwest Missouri State become a power. Burnett was 35-83 overall and 10-54 in the Big Ten over four seasons at Michigan. The Wolverines were 10-20 overall and 3-13 in the conference last season, finishing 10th. Michigan's best year under Burnett was its first, when the team was 14-17 during the 2003-04 season. She was 319-136 and coached in 10 NCAA tournaments before she was hired at Michigan.

Michigan 's debut as a Division I program began with a 12-9 loss to Detroit Mercy on Sunday. Not the kind of start the Wolverines were hoping for with opponents like No. 3 Denver, No. 7 North Carolina, No. 11 Harvard, No. 13 Penn State, No. 16 Delaware and No. 18 Ohio State still remaining on the schedule. And with 14 Division I schools installing new head coaches in the offseason, the emphasis on winning has never been clearer. But Michigan coach John Paul said he's being given a certain amount of leeway to build the program.

DALLAS -- Their march through this year's NCAA tournament stopped last night in the Sweet 16 of the Midwest Regional at Reunion Arena.The Maryland Terrapins might be coming home, but not before giving Michigan some anxious moments down the stretch. After falling behind by as many as 21 points with a little under nine minutes left, the 10th-seeded Terps made one of their trademark comebacks. They closed twice to within six in the final 90 seconds before losing to the third-seeded Wolverines, 78-71.

LANSING, Mich. -- To regain control of the House of Representatives, the Democrats need a pickup of at least six seats, assuming they can hold onto the one here in Michigan's 8th Congressional District, being surrendered by Democratic Rep. Debbie Stabenow, the party's Senate nominee. Although the Democrats have held the seat for eight of the past 10 years, it's no sure thing, in part because demographic changes may be making the district more suburban and Republican. Two experienced and well-respected state legislators, Democratic state Sen. Dianne Byrum and Republican Senate floor leader Mike Rogers, are competing for the open seat, and both -- so far, anyway -- are employing a strategy uncommon in politics these days: civility.

The No. 5 host Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team got 11 goals and nine assists from its starting attack and first midfield, and Mike Poppleton won 17 of 18 faceoffs to fuel a 17-8 win over visiting Michigan at Homewood Field on Saturday. The win improves Hopkins' record to 3-0, while the Wolverines slip to 0-3. The meeting was the first between Johns Hopkins and Michigan in men's lacrosse. The Blue Jays took all the drama out of the game with an 8-0 run that turned an early 1-0 deficit into an 8-1 lead early in the second quarter.

COLLEGE PARK - The players on Maryland's men's and women's soccer teams can't look at their respective opponents Friday any different than they have others they have faced this season. But the Terps understand the significance that these games hold. When the 12th-ranked men's team faces Michigan in Ann Arbor and the women's team plays host to Rutgers at Ludwig Field, it will mark Maryland's first in-conference competition of any kind as a member of the Big Ten. The school officially joined the league in July after 61 years in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Morgan State's 0-2 start has been punctuated by similar three-point losses to Eastern Michigan and Holy Cross. Another similarity involves the defense's inability to preserve leads. The Bears had a 28-21 advantage with 5:30 left in the third quarter before Eastern Michigan scored the final 10 points. They held a 26-23 lead with 3:39 left in the fourth period until Holy Cross punched in the game-winning touchdown on the final play. But coach Lee Hull said the defense's play has not sounded any alarms yet. “It's a new system, and our guys are still learning,” Hull said Tuesday morning during his weekly conference call organized by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Morgan State nearly made Lee Hull's debut as head coach a memorable one, but the Bears fell short in a 31-28 loss to Eastern Michigan on Saturday night. A three-point defeat to a Football Bowl Subdivision program might normally be viewed in a favorable light, but the Bears, who play in the Football Championship Subdivision, aren't looking for moral victories. “They were upset because they thought they were the better football team,” Hull said of his players Tuesday morning during his weekly conference call organized by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Trailing them was another man, in work clothes. He was looking for something special for his mother's wedding gift. "He ran me all over the store," shop owner Patricia Clowd recalled. Clowd and police now say the hunt for the perfect gift was a distraction, providing the dapper Robert Weathers an opportunity to grab a tray of diamonds from an unlocked case.

As for Maryland's mind-set, all Michigan has to do is look into its own past.

The Supreme Court's decision this week in the case Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action was disappointing but not surprising and might have been far worse. What the court did was uphold a 2006 ballot initiative that banned race-based admission policies at Michigan's state schools. It has no impact on states like Maryland where diversity on campus can continue to be promoted. That's crucial. The same court had its chance to ban affirmative action last year in a University of Texas case and chose not to do so. So it remains constitutional for the vast majority of U.S. colleges and universities to consider race - along with all the other factors that go into the admissions process, from whether a parent attended the school to the soft-discrimination posed by SAT scores enhanced by pricey prep classes.
