When I was a high school sophomore, all I did was drink Mountain Dew, hang out in American Online chat rooms and play on my old-school Playstation. Keonta Vernon? He breaks backboards. Check out this video of Vernon, a sophomore at Tulare Union High School in California, who shattered a backboard at a recent high school basketball game (in the backboard's defense, it looked a decade or so past its prime). It's become an Internet sensation. I found it on The Big Lead , so allow me to give a hit tip to them.

As one of the shortest players on the Morgan State football team, Herb Walker Jr. has a nickname among his Bears teammates: "Smurf. " The running back, who recently confessed to being 1 inch shorter than his already diminutive listed height of 5 feet 8, has heard worse from defenses. The insults don't bother him as much as the assumptions behind them. Opponents tell Walker he's "soft. Or I don't run hard," he said. "But they'll feel me when I get the ball. " Neither label fit after the 19-year-old Walker set a school record a week ago. In Morgan State's 26-23 loss Saturday to Holy Cross, 26-23, the sophomore rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.

Seven years after the University of Baltimore admitted its first freshman class, new President Kurt L. Schmoke is considering a return to the school's roots as an upper-division college that enrolled only juniors and seniors. The enrollment growth that came with the first underclassmen in 2007 has stagnated. UB enrolls about 200 freshmen each fall, and the university still attracts mostly transfers and graduate students. In an interview Friday, Schmoke spoke of flat public funding and a need to work more efficiently.

Towson running back Darius Victor had a front-row seat to the scintillating runs that Terrance West made last year during the team's march to the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game. And one of the things Victor, then a freshman, admired was West's patience. "Last year, I rushed to the hole sometimes," Victor recalled. "I made a couple good plays, but I rushed some things. Terrance had great patience. He would tell me, 'Little bro, did you see that?' Everything he did, he would tell me, and that's why I love him so much.

COLLEGE PARK -  Jacquille Veii used his speed and quickness to get open out of the slot, made a sliding catch across the middle during team drills and later made a 25-yard reception during the two-minute portion of practice. The Maryland sophomore was in only his first day as a slot receiver after being moved from running back Monday, but he flashed some skills at his new position during practice Tuesday night. “Yeah. I saw that,” Terps senior linebacker L.A. Goree said.

COLLEGE PARK -  Randy Edsall's plan all along was to re-assess Maryland's depth chart after the first week of preseason practice, and the coach announced two position changes before the Terps' practice Tuesday night. Edsall moved running back Jacquille Veii from running back to slot receiver and highly touted freshman offensive lineman Damian Prince from left tackle to left guard. “[They are] things that we think can help us,” Edsall said. Veii made some plays at running back during the first week of preseason practice and was the fastest and most elusive of Maryland's running backs, but the Terps are deep in the backfield with juniors Brandon Ross and Albert Reid and sophomore Wes Brown.

At a time when the stability of Maryland's men's basketball program has been in question, Robert Carter may have provided the best form of support for embattled coach Mark Turgeon. The 6-foot-8, 247-pound power forward - considered one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's most promising big men before announcing plans to transfer - signed with the Terps on Friday. He then praised Turgeon for his vision and said he wasn't concerned about the fact that five scholarship players transferred from Maryland after the season “I feel like he's doing and they're doing what's best for the program,” Carter said of Turgeon, who just completed his third season at Maryland.
