The four guys in J. Roddy Walston and the Business want to make a small but crucial distinction: They're not a rock band. They're a rock 'n' roll band. It might seem like a subtle point, but for the Baltimore group, those two extra words are all the difference. Nickelback plays rock. Jerry Lee Lewis, one of the band's heroes, plays rock 'n' roll. "Rock 'n' roll is big and mysterious and romantic," singer/pianist J. Roddy Walston said. "We feel like rock 'n' roll does matter.

Carol Roddy will not get a Mother's Day card from her youngest son today. There won't be any flowers from him. And there won't be a Mother's Day dinner with him. Navy Petty Officer David Roddy, who specialized in defusing explosives, died in Iraq last fall. This is her first Mother's Day without him. "I was dreading Mother's Day," she said. Since her son's death, Roddy has been on a mission to revive the Maryland chapter of the American Gold Star Mothers - a support group created in 1928 by grieving mothers who lost their children in World War I. The group is a nonpolitical, nonprofit organization that seeks to "further all patriotic work," according to its charter.

Baltimore Sun reporters Don Markus and Jeff Barker and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. Has Mark Turgeon lost confidence in Roddy Peters or has Peters lost confidence in himself? Don Markus:  It is often difficult to tell how Turgeon feels about certain players as their roles change, especially when their court time fluctuates as much as Peters' has recently. It is also hard to gauge how players feel about their game, or their changing role, especially those who are not in the spotlight and don't talk to the media on a regular basis.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. How effective  was freshman Roddy Peters in his first ACC game? Jeff Barker: He was good. But he can be better. Here are some observations about the point guard: -- Peters is particularly strong in the open court where he can use his speed. But he is not a reluctant player in the half court. He tries to penetrate off the dribble even when covered.

The Dez Wells point guard experiment is not over. But Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said today that freshman Roddy Peters is the team's best option at the position. “Roddy is our best point guard offensively, and he's getting better defensively,” Turgeon told reporters as the team prepared for Thursday night's game at Boston College - the season's first Atlantic Coast Conference contest. “I loved the way he finished the [George Washington] game. He stepped up and made those free throws like he was just shooting in the park or shooting in an empty gym. " Wells was pressed into service at point guard when sophomore Seth Allen broke his foot before the season.

It seemed like a perfect plan. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon would start the 2013-14 season with sophomore Seth Allen at point guard and bring Roddy Peters off the bench to help the freshman get adjusted to the speed and physicality of the college game. Eventually, Turgeon would have to decide between the two, but given Allen's ability as a player who could score in bursts, it seemed that the Terps would ultimately go with Peters at the point and Allen at his natural wing position.

With Seth Allen on crutches (broken foot), Maryland coach Mark Turgeon has said that freshman point guard Roddy Peters must step in and “play through his mistakes.” We saw that Sunday from the promising freshman during Maryland's 84-39 exhibition victory over a Catholic team that was smaller than the Terps at every position. Peters (7 points on 2-for-5 shooting from the floor, 2 assists, 2 turnovers) showed off his speed and his unselfish nature. He occasionally drove the ball too far under the basket and found himself trapped.
