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.

Editor: It was good to see the sheriff an other important high ranking Harford County officials recently tour the Edgewood area. This a huge step forward to helping solve the problems that constantly plague the Edgewood Community. Now I hope the residents of Edgewood will step up and do the right thing to help police drive crime out of Edgewood to save their community as well learn how to preserve Edgewood for future generations, so the community will feel safer for all. Hopefully the residents will embrace the fact that both the police an the Harford County Council do care about what happens in Edgewood, but nothing can be done till the community steps up to make it happen.

Maryland's decision to join a handful of states that allow undocumented immigrants the chance to obtain driver's licenses was a pragmatic one designed to keep residents safe. Border security, deportation policy and pathways to citizenship are not within Maryland's purview, but ensuring that drivers on the road are competent, that their vehicles are registered and that they purchase insurance are the state's responsibility. The establishment of a two-tiered license system here - in which those who cannot document their immigration status are allowed the chance to obtain a license valid for driving but not purposes like getting on airplanes or entering federal buildings - was simply a rational response to the twin facts that some hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants live in Maryland and that by necessity they will drive whether we like it or not. The policy is of a piece with others the state has adopted in recent months.

A man who, according to witnesses, was naked and trying to ignite something Friday morning in a Severna Park street ran away and barricaded himself in his home when Anne Arundel County officers responded, police said. Police initially were called to the first block of Robinson Landing Road for an indecent exposure report around 10:42 a.m. When the man barricaded himself at the home, the department's negotiation team and special operations officers were sent, and negotiators spoke with the man by telephone, police said.

The days of the Orioles having a set closer -- someone who will get the ball in save situations, no matter the circumstances -- are over, at least for now. Alfredo Simon, who has converted 15 of 18 opportunities for the Orioles, is still the likely No. 1 choice in save situations, but as new manager Buck Showalter proved in his debut Tuesday night, he'll get creative if it means securing the victory. "In a perfect world, of course," Showalter said about employing a set closer, "if you have got the right guy. I look at it as the priority for the Orioles is to win a game.

JERUSALEM - They call it simply "the Situation." The politicians have their own names for the conflict that, beginning last September, has engulfed Israel, the West Bank and Gaza Strip. A popular uprising against occupation, Palestinian leaders call it. An organized terror campaign, the Israeli government says. But for many on either side of the widening, bloody divide, it is simply "the Situation." It is a neutral, understated way of describing a terrifying way of life, a way of creating normality for people who send their children to school on armored buses or are prevented from reaching their jobs or medical care by military checkpoints.

Nick Markakis, Orioles outfielder What do you take more pride in, hitting a home run or taking one away defensively? It all depends on the situation of the game, really. If you take away a home run in a close game to help out your pitcher, that's always good. But if you hit a home run in a clutch situation, when you need a couple of runs, that's good, too.

Kevin Gregg, whom the Orioles designated for assignment on Tuesday , said he's “really disappointed” that he will not be able to make a final postseason push with the Orioles this season. But he also felt like he couldn't thrive in a situation where he wasn't pitching much. And when he wasn't pitching much, he wasn't effective, giving him fewer chances to pitch.   Here are some quotes Gregg told The Sun moments ago: Gregg on being designated for assignment: “To be honest, I wasn't surprised.

B altimore is about to have a situation on its hands. Not just any situation. The Situation. The Situation is the nickname for one of the stars of MTV's infamous new reality TV show, "Jersey Shore." The 27-year-old from Staten Island has a real name - Mike Sorrentino - but that's inconsequential. What matters is, The Situation has six-pack abs so well-defined that he calls them "the situation" (hence, the nickname). Every opportunity he gets - at work, on magazine covers, on the dance floor - he lifts his shirt to show them off. Like the other guys on "Jersey Shore," The Situation is a self-declared guido's guido - with carefully gelled hair, perma-tanned skin and alpha-male attitude.

CLEVELAND -- Before his final team meeting Saturday night was over, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh opened the floor to his players and asked them if they had any questions about the organization's handling of the Ray Rice situation. The response was silence. As the Ravens' organization continues to face heavy scrutiny for the way it responded to Rice's February assault of his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator, the players continue to say that it's not a distraction on the field.

At the beginning of what would become another tumultuous week, Ravens coach John Harbaugh made an observation about the Ray Rice fallout that will never sound as prescient as it does now. "We're probably not going to get away from it, and probably rightly so," Harbaugh said Monday. As the Ravens prepared for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, their organization remained under significant scrutiny for what it did and didn't do in its handling of the Rice situation. The Ravens terminated the contract of the Pro Bowl running back on Sept.

For the second time since a graphic video surfaced of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching Janay Rice in a casino elevator, retired linebacker and ESPN NFL analyst Ray Lewis has commented on the domestic-violence incident. Rice's $35 million contract was terminated by the Ravens on Monday. He has been indefinitely suspended by the NFL. "This is a tragic situation what Ray Rice did was inexcusable," Lewis said Sunday morning on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown. "There's no room in our world for what we've seen.

I was amazed to see WBAL-TV interviewing Ray Lewis regarding the release of the TMZ video about Ray Rice's actions in the elevator ( "Ray Lewis weighs in on Ray Rice situation, calls it 'night and day' to his past legal problems," Sept 8). Are we to take away from this that obfuscating and obstructing justice regarding the murder of two men is not as bad as making a horrible mistake in judgment and punching the woman you love? Shame on WBAL-TV for not finding an upstanding former teammate to comment on the Ray Rice situation and his release from the team.

This should have been a totally tall week for Baltimore - tall ships and Blue Angels for War of 1812 commemorations; the Orioles, ever closer to a division title, back home to play the Yankees; Derek Jeter bidding farewell to Camden Yards; the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium to face their biggest rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Thursday night on national television. Big stuff, tall stuff, a real wow week in the life of Charm City. And it's all still true, except for the clouds left by the Ray Rice storm.

In an emotional message, the wife of former Ravens running back Ray Rice broke her silence Tuesday morning, one day after Rice's contract was terminated and he was indefinitely suspended by the NFL. Those events followed a graphic video surfacing in which Rice punched his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, whom he later married and now has his last name. The couple has been in counseling since the incident in February, which occurred at Revel Casino, which has since closed, in Atlantic City, N.J. The Baltimore Sun has verified that the following unabridged message from her official Instagram account is from Janay Rice and was intended to be released publicly: "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote.

Prayer at Tench Tilghman Elementary School was necessary for giving the students, staff and parents strength and hope in their given situation ("Prayer service at city school called improper," March 14). Regardless of any situation one may encounter, along with personal effort, prayer certainly works. Prayer is the key to everyone's success whether you realize it or not. Even if we are not praying ourselves, someone is always lifting our names in prayer. The Biblical passage in Philippians 4:6 states: "Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God. " Keep praying Jael Yon, principal of Tench Tilgman Elementary School.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  IMBROGLIO When you discover what a nice mess you have gotten yourself into, you have a word at hand to label the situation.  Imbroglio (pronounced im-BROL-yo) can be, variously, a mess of things, such as the heap of clutter that has accumulated in the garage; a complicated situation, such as the plot of a soap opera; an embarrassing misunderstanding; or a confused and complicated dispute, such as the recurring kerfuffles over the exposure of spurious rules of English usage.  English pocketed the word from the Italian around 1750.  Example:  From a 2005 Washington Post article: " The Judith Miller-Valerie Plame-Scooter Libby imbroglio is being reduced to a simple narrative about the origins of the Iraq war.

A veteran catcher is available now that the Boston Red Sox have designated A.J. Pierzynski for assignment , but the Orioles don't appear interested in pursuing him at this point. With Matt Wieters out for the season following Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery last month, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette previously has said that the club was confident with the team's existing catching tandem of Caleb Joseph and Nick Hundley. Duquette again emphasized his faith in the duo when asked Wednesday if the club would be interested in acquiring Pierzynski.

How far can President Barack Obama involve the U.S. in Iraq without taking ownership of a war he opposed and supposedly ended? Iraq finds itself once again on the precipice of civil war, presenting Mr. Obama with a difficult choice: Is the U.S. back in or staying out? In recent weeks, he has appeared as though he is trying to walk a fine line between the two. He earlier announced he was sending 300 military advisers to Iraq (Secretary of State John Kerry has also visited Baghdad), but he cautioned that the U.S. would only take military action "if the situation on the ground requires it. " Since then, several hundred troops have been sent to Baghdad to help protect the American embassy there and help with security and logistics, according to the New York Times, bringing the number of U.S. troops deployed to Iraq to 750. The decision over what to do is especially tough for Mr. Obama, given his history on the war. Candidate Obama made political hay on his anti-Iraq position in the 2008 primaries against Hillary Clinton, who could not escape her earlier vote for the war despite her subsequent reversal.
