The University of Maryland and its partner of 61 years, the Atlantic Coast Conference, finally agreed on the terms of their messy divorce: a mediated settlement, announced Friday, under which the school will pay $31 million of a $52 million exit fee the conference sought. The settlement figure is the amount the ACC already has collected by withholding shared conference revenues — without Maryland's consent — to make sure it got at least a portion of what it demanded. So after nearly 21 months of litigation in Maryland and North Carolina courts, each side can walk away.

If your name was Predrag Radosavljevic, you'd want to be called Preki, too.That's certainly more flattering than what the Blast's Billy Ronson was calling Preki after the St. Louis Storm midfielder allegedly spat on Ronson during a preseason game two weeks ago in Springfield, Mass."

ABOARD THE MISS KAY -- In a steady rain, crew members sort through the pile of oysters on a washboard, separating "markets" and "smalls," "spat" and "boxes" and recording their findings as part of the state Department of Natural Resources fall survey.They started three weeks ago near Poole's Island, about 18 miles north of the Bay Bridge, and have been working their way south dredging on the Eastern and Western shores to get a picture of the oyster population.So far, they have found fewer boxes -- the empty shells of oysters killed by Dermo or MSX -- than they had feared.

Two weeks after one councilman declared Anne Arundel County "at war" with local schools over a $5 million funding dispute, the County Council unanimously voted Monday to hand over the cash. The county and schools were at odds over how to resolve the outstanding tab, which arose when state officials determined that Anne Arundel did not give the school system the minimum funding required by state law. While the amount of money was small in relation to the schools' overall budget, the bill took on outsized political significance.

A battle over $5 million escalated this week with Anne Arundel County lawmakers threatening repercussions and school leaders saying seven projects for new schools are jeopardized by the fray. At issue is how the county should pay a $5 million tab owed to the school system under Maryland's maintenance-of-effort law. "It'll probably be the last five million [dollars] the Board of Education gets in a long while," Councilman Jamie Benoit, a Democrat from Crownsville, told a school system representative during a public hearing Monday.

Cornerback Cary Williams and wide receiver Tandon Doss got into a heated argument during Monday's practice but they were separated before the altercation got physical. It all started when Williams and wide receiver Torrey Smith exchanged a few words, with Williams accusing Smith of holding him. Then Doss, who sat out the practice with a minor hamstring injury, began taunting Williams loudly from near the huddle. After Doss lobbed insults at Williams from about 10 yards away for a minute or two, he finally got under the cornerback's skin.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blakeand her allies on the city's Board of Estimates today voted down a $7.4 million contract with IBM for switching city offices to voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phones because she believes there needs to be greater coordination between the Municipal Telephone Exchange, which is part of Comptroller Joan Pratt's office, and the Mayor's Office of Information Technology. And who could argue that isn't needed? Switching the phone system could save the city millions of dollars a year, but doing so without the significant participation of the workers who maintain Baltimore's computer network could lead to costly mistakes.

In a standoff that might require delicate diplomacy to resolve, officials in Western Maryland are pressing the federal government to reconsider its refusal to help pay for local security costs for this week's G-8 summit at Camp David. Local police say they are ready for expected protests of the Group of Eight industrialized nations gathering that begins Friday and ends Saturday night — the highest-profile event held at the presidential retreat in years — but they are not eager to pick up the tab. They say overtime and equipment could cost tens of thousands of dollars — a big hit to small-town budgets.

Orioles second baseman Robert Andino said his war of words with New York Yankees catcher Russell Martin as Monday's game ended was simply miscommunication between two competitive people. "Just heat of the moment, boys being boys," Andino said. "We had a few words, but nothing big. " In the bottom of the ninth, Martin apparently accused Andino of tipping pitch locations from second base after he doubled against Yankees closer Mariano Rivera . "I guess so, but it was just a misunderstanding, I guess.

On the subject of his brother's postgame tiff with Detroit coach Jim Schwartz, Ravens coach John Harbaugh drew a line in the sand Monday and, not surprisingly, sided with Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers coach. Jim Harbaugh and Schwartz made national news after Harbaugh's 49ers dealt the Lions their first loss of the season Sunday. In the traditional postgame handshake, Harbaugh obviously offended Schwartz with an over-zealous shake. Schwartz then chased Harbaugh toward the locker room and both men were kept apart.
