Not South Florida's fault David Selig Baltimore Sun Why would baseball give up on South Florida? South Florida taxpayers paid $360 million to build a new ballpark and to improve the Marlins' chances of sustaining a competitive team. South Florida didn't hire a risky manager. South Florida didn't gut the roster. Jeffrey Loria did. If baseball could give up on Loria, that would be one thing. But it appears the owner didn't violate any rules with this fire sale, so there's not much that can be done.

Shortly after Maryland escaped with a 24-17 win over South Florida on Saturday, Terps coach Randy Edsall stood in front of his team inside the visiting locker room at Raymond James Stadium and was blunt with his offense. “I told them afterward that we were awful offensively,” Edsall said. There were plenty of issues. But one thing is undeniable: The Terps need more from quarterback C.J. Brown as a passer. Brown was just 11 of 24 for 111 yards during Maryland's 52-7 season-opening win over James Madison.

Not too long ago, South Florida was a consistent contender in the Big East. The Bulls had a winning record every year from 2006 through 2010 and were ranked as high as No. 2 in the country in 2007. Now, South Florida isn't very good. The Bulls team that Maryland plays Saturday was just 2-10 last season and struggled with a mediocre Football Championship Subdivision team (Western Carolina) in their season opener Saturday. Western Carolina was 2-10 last year, including 1-7 in the Southern Conference, but the Catamounts led South Florida, 17-16, at halftime and lost, 36-31.

COLLEGE PARK -  Three times last week, South Florida running back Marlon Mack found an opening in Western Carolina's defensive front, made a defender or two miss down the field and then outran the defense for a touchdown of 56-plus yards. As a whole, South Florida does not appear to be very good. The Bulls gave up 31 points to a Western Carolina offense that did not score more than 30 points in any game last season. South Florida quarterback Mike White, meanwhile, threw just three touchdowns with nine interceptions in six games last year and was just 9 of 26 with no touchdowns and an interception against a Catamounts defense that gave up 62 points to Samford last season.

The coolest sporting event in South Florida this week is the Sony Ericsson Open, the popular pro tennis event in Key Biscayne. The tournament has been spiced up this year with something called Night Tennis, which is basically a glitzy downtown exhibition that features players in glow-in-the-dark clothing competing under black lights on a court that will open up to an all-night party that is free to the public tonight and tomorrow. The tournament is no slouch either, featuring just about every big name in professional tennis.

My wife of 55 years, Mallie, recently passed away in our home in South Florida after a hard-fought, three-year battle with stage-four lung cancer, although she never smoked, consumed alcoholic beverages, or, for that matter, ate red meat. But excruciating as it was to serve as her caregiver - and to ponder incessantly why a disease so unrelated to her lifestyle befell her - the ordeal brought into focus a neglected side of the current debates over immigration policy as well as the debate suggesting the decline of race relations.
