Notre Dame associate head coach Corwin Brown has criticized Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo for his comments after the Midshipmen upset the Irish on Saturday and for what he termed a "malicious" cut block by a Navy receiver. Brown said it was improper for Niumatalolo to say after the game that Navy knew Notre Dame would use the same defensive scheme as the season before. He said classy coaches don't make such comments. He also said Navy lacks imagination in its blocking, saying its players use illegal cut blocks.

Severn's defense, goalkeeping and the timely scoring of Eddy Shoop have helped the girls soccer team get off to a quick start this season. That same formula helped the No. 4 Admirals win again on Wednesday. Shoop scored late in the game and the Severn defense was strong once again in front of Alayah Hightower in a 1-0 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference victory over No. 12 Notre Dame Prep. The Admirals won their second straight game and sixth in seven tries.

Might not have choice Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel Notre Dame takes a lot of pride in its independence from any conference affiliation in football, despite the changing college landscape. However, the barbarians at the gate might force the school to finally make a choice it has been avoiding for years. The recent instability in the Big East — Notre Dame's conference in other sports — has school officials considering all of their options. For conferences such as the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC, Notre Dame is the Holy Grail of additions.

COLLEGE PARK - There are no commemorative T-shirts worn at practice to remind Sasho Cirovski and his Maryland men's soccer team of their controversial loss to Notre Dame in the final of last year's College Cup.

Scott Rodgers' day in the Notre Dame cage started with a fusillade of Cornell shots, a disconcerting number of Irish turnovers and a 1-0 deficit. But after the massive, 6-foot-4, 254-pound goalkeeper let in a quick goal, he slammed the door shut and turned the game's momentum in a major way. By the time the NCAA Division I lacrosse semifinal was over, Rodgers had ushered the Irish to their first national championship game on 16 saves and...

With Notre Dame up 63-62 with 42 seconds remaining against Xavier in the second round of the NCAA tournament, Eric Atkins had the ball in his hands with designs on increasing the Irish's tenuous lead. The Mount St. Joseph grad took the inbounds pass and faced pressure from Musketeers defenders. Atkins eyed teammate Pat Connaughton , but lofted his pass into the stands for a devastating late turnover. On the next possession, Xavier's Tu Holloway connected on a fade-away jumper that gave the Musketeers a 64-63 edge.

An Irish blessing Brian Hamilton Chicago Tribune Some day Notre Dame may call upon the ACC for a service. It will want a football conference to call home, and the ACC will oblige, right after it's done making snow angels in the $100 bills layering its floor. Until then? This partnership is an Irish blessing. Nothing is more important to anyone in this deal than football independence is to Notre Dame. That remains viable. And now the program can infiltrate the ACC's postseason bowl structure, a critical security measure.

Dan Rodricks ' column " Excuses aside, Maryland voter turnout an embarrassment " (June 25) resonated with me. I did vote in last month's primary election. I am embarrassed for people who are entitled to vote but did not and am saddened by the lackluster turnout in the primary elections in Maryland. I want to thank Mr. Rodricks for sounding the proverbial wake-up call. I feel compelled to acknowledge my appreciation for people and circumstances that taught me to value and appreciate my right to vote.

As Maryland prepares to move to the Big Ten this summer, games against the likes of Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers - in addition to its traditional series with Johns Hopkins - are tantalizing matchups on the upcoming schedule. But who the Terps can retain from their days in the Atlantic Coast Conference could be just as compelling. For decades, the program battled with Duke, North Carolina and Virginia. And when Notre Dame and Syracuse joined the league for the 2014 campaign, the contests were must-see opportunities for fans.

Known for some of the most prolific offenses in NCAA history, Duke is no slouch on defense either. For the seventh time in the past eight years, the defense ended a season by giving up an average of less than 10 goals. Some of the credit goes to volunteer assistant coach Ben DeLuca. The former Cornell head coach, who was dismissed from the Big Red in November, replaced former Maryland defenseman Joe Cinosky, who became the defensive coordinator at Mount St. Mary's, and joined the program in February to help defensive coordinator Ron Caputo.

Asked if the Duke men's lacrosse team's recent run to three national championships in five years could be considered a dynasty, coach John Danowski preferred a different D-word. “It's Duke,” Danowski said after the Blue Devils held off Atlantic Coast Conference rival Notre Dame to emerge with an 11-9 victory in Monday's NCAA national championship before an announced 25,587 at M&T Bank Stadium. “We have this opportunity. … For the kids who come here, it's hard.

School gets an F John Cherwa Los Angeles Times Perhaps the saddest part of the Manti Te'o Internet fraud story is the total lack of leadership shown by the once hallowed institution of Notre Dame. While a forensic examination of Te'o's statements would likely make it clear he was not telling nothing but the whole truth, the fact that the school allowed - and even encouraged - Te'o to not come clean on the hoax and focus on the BCS title game is appalling. Don't be persuaded by the near-teary news conference of AD Jack Swarbrick.

Henry Lobb stood up against the wall in the tunnel at M&T Bank Stadium, fumbling through words while trying to catch his breath. For most of Monday afternoon, the Duke senior defenseman stood on the stadium field with his knees bent, long stick in hand while chasing around one player: Notre Dame sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh. Lobb zoned in on Kavanagh, who torched Maryland's top-ranked defense in the semifinals for seven points (five goals and two assists) to lead the No. 6 Notre Dame to Monday's national championship against No. 1 Duke.
