DALLAS -- Arkansas basketball coach Nolan Richardson said he started wearing a tie last season so he could pull on it and remain calm when he got upset with officiating. This season, he knows he better hold on for dear life because of the stricter bench decorum rules in the Southwest Conference and tougher National Collegiate Athletic Association rules punishing unruly coaches."I am going to have to keep my mouth shut so I don't get thrown out of games," Richardson said."They are going to have to give coaches Valium before the games," Texas coach Tom Penders said with a chuckle.

Ask Marquenta Taylor what it's like to be called "coach" by Meade High football players, and the normally loquacious woman takes a beat to ponder the question, as if you're asking what it's like to walk on the moon. Increasingly, though, the sound of the words "Coach Taylor" is becoming more familiar. "Now, some of the older guys call me coach. I'm waiting to see what happens the first time they see me in public. Like, if I go to the mall and somebody says, `What's up, Coach?' " said Taylor, a guidance counselor at the Anne Arundel County high school.

Forget for a moment about where Maryland-Duke might rank in the pantheon of college basketball rivalries and think back instead to Duke fans chanting "Sweat, Gary, sweat" at former Maryland coach Gary Williams. His face is glistening and his silver hair is matted as he stalks the sideline under the hot lights at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Think about Maryland fans howling a four-letter profanity at the Blue Devils, or Juan Dixon tarnishing Duke hero Shane Battier's senior night with 28 points, or Jay Williams' icy stare in the huddle before leading Duke back from 10 points down in the "Miracle Minute" game that still nags at the Terps who played in it. "Not our rivals," the Cameron Crazies condescended in recent years, trying perhaps too hard to poke the Terps where it hurt most.

The Washington Redskins' defense had taken more shots than it had delivered during the first 10 weeks of the season, not only from opposing teams but also from fans and media. Perhaps the most decisive blow came last week, in the form of a scathing article in ESPN the Magazine, which outlined the turmoil among the defensive players and coaches, particularly assistant head coach Gregg Williams.

I'm sure I am not the only reader who is annoyed by the constant criticism of Baltimore's sports teams by Mike Preston , especially the Ravens. His cutesy grading of the team is annoying and tiresome at best. I have no idea what Mr. Preston's background is, but his articles do not reflect a great knowledge of the sports about which he writes. The constant whining and attacking of the players and coaches is unprofessional, unwarranted and, in my view, a poor reflection on The Sun. E. S. Vaughan, Columbia

The Ravens took a break out of their minicamp schedule to surprise O.J. Brigance, showing up to run at yesterday's charity 5K race for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Brigance, 38, a former Ravens player who is the team's director of player development, was the honorary chairman for the event that started at Power Plant Live. He was diagnosed in May 2007 with ALS, often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease, a progressive and fatal illness that shuts down nerve cells responsible for movement.

Major League Baseball can't have players going into the stands after fans. It's just a no-can-do, regardless of the circumstances. Even if an idiot fan does something that deserves a knuckle sandwich. That's the hard line Frank Robinson rightfully drew as baseball's minister of justice Wednesday when he suspended 19 players and coaches from the Los Angeles Dodgers for brawling with fans at Wrigley Field. It might be true that too many fans are behaving appallingly, with brazen and odious disrespect for the players they pay to see, but chasing a fan into the stands is the height of unprofessionalism.

Blast coach Kevin Healey fully expected what he viewed as a wrong to be corrected when he looked at the eight names added to the National Professional Soccer League All-Star teams. Much to his chagrin, it was not. Healey's Blast still has only one representative in Tuesday's All-Star Game in Edmonton. That's Denison Cabral, although severalothers on the team with the American Conference's best record could have made their cases. "I can't understand it," Healey said. "I'm disappointed about the voting, and we are disappointed as an organization."

The Israel Lacrosse Association issued a statement Tuesday saying that its women's national team will forfeit if it is scheduled to play a World Cup game between sunset Friday, July 19 and sunset Saturday, July 20, which is Judaism's holy day of Shabbat that week. The opening rounds of the 19-team Women's World Cup begin Thursday, and only the top eight teams would be eligible to play in the championship bracket on July 19 or 20. The Federation of International Lacrosse has told the Israelis it will not rework the schedule if they advance and are slated to play on Shabbat.

Johns Hopkins was left out of the NCAA tournament Sunday night for the first time since 1971. The exclusion snapped a streak of 41 consecutive appearances in the tournament, which ended what had been the longest active streak in a Division I team sport. The streak was a point of pride for the program, but could also be a burden as senior classes feared about being the one unable to extend the run. Coach Dave Pietramala said the streak did not weigh on him. But for the players? That might have been a different story.

The Blast plans to induct former player and assistant coach Tarik Walker into the Baltimore Blast Hall of Fame on Feb. 16. Walker, who played 10 seasons in Baltimore, served as an assistant coach for part of the 2005-06 season and retired from playing after the 2006-07 season. He will be honored in a ceremony during halftime of the Blast's game against the Wichita Wings. After the then-Baltimore Spirit selected him in the 1993 National Professional Soccer League draft, Walker won the league's Rookie of the Year award in 1994 and played on Major Indoor Soccer League championship teams with the Blast in 2003, 2004 and 2006.

The two coaches sat together under the shade of UMBC's Stadium Complex. The coaches, men with more than 60 years of experience between them, occasionally glanced down at the women's lacrosse practice in motion, talking to pass the time. The reality is that Pete Caringi II, UMBC's soccer coach, and Don Zimmerman, the school's lacrosse coach, share more in common than a profession. Both men have earned their reputations through the respected programs they have built, through the wins and championships they have achieved and the countless number of athletes they have coached.

Pro Bowl selections, Super Bowl champions and a host of other former NFL players and coaches shared their collective wisdom Saturday during Football University at the Severn School. The invitation-only football camp gave some of the region's top high school and middle school players a chance to learn techniques from seasoned veterans and gain tips for life outside of football. More than 200 players participated in Saturday's camp. Organizers aim to keep Football University functioning at an 8-1 coach-player ratio.

Westminster forward/center Emily Bollinger stood near her team's bench and tried to explain how it fell apart in the fourth quarter last night at South Carroll. The Owls couldn't find good shots, kept making turnovers and saw the game fall away from them. "It was a lot to deal with [today]," Bollinger said quietly. This was a long day for the Westminster girls. It began with coach Dick Ebersole's surprise resignation, and a few hours later, the Owls had to play South Carroll. Westminster hung in for a while but ran out of gas in the fourth quarter as the Cavaliers pulled away for a 57-47 victory in a Carroll County game.

This being Baltimore, the home office for high anxiety, some fans are already freaking out about a potential Ravens letdown Sunday against the Denver Broncos. You've heard all this before, of course. In this town, a big Ravens win like Sunday's 17-14 thriller over the Pittsburgh Steelers inevitably translates into impending doom for the home team in its next game. I heard it on the radio talk shows Tuesday. I read it on blogs and message boards. I even bought a cup of coffee at Royal Farms and ran into a guy buzzing on 100percent Colombian Supremo who yakked nonstop about how the Ravens might as well bring 45 cots and pillows to M&T Bank Stadium this weekend, so minimal would their effort be against the Broncos.

There was no visible fallout at Ravens practice Tuesday, one day after the team was reprimanded by the NFL for offseason rules violations. The Ravens were disciplined after six players complained to the players union about late meetings and two others reported being held too long on the field after practice, according to coach John Harbaugh. These infractions occurred during the team's first voluntary passing camp in the middle of May, Harbaugh said. On Monday, the league resolved the grievance by forcing the Ravens to cancel next week's practices, which were the last ones of the offseason.
