Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said he spent much of Monday putting out “a lot of fires” after a San Francisco newspaper reported - erroneously, Anderson said - that he was on the verge of being hired as Stanford's AD. “I spent the majority of this afternoon calling - talking to my president and to supporters of the athletic department and staff members. I had to put out a lot of fires,” Anderson told the Baltimore Sun . Anderson said all of his phone calls were the product of “somebody putting some inaccurate information on the Internet.” The San Francisco Chronicle reported Stanford was to name Anderson as athletic director “assuming the two sides can agree on contract terms.” In a written statement, Anderson said: “I am not in discussions nor have I been with Stanford University regarding their open athletic director position as I am committed to being the director of athletics at the University of Maryland.” The Chronicle's report was widely disseminated via Twitter and other sources.

Brittney Griner came within one blocked shot of a tripledouble Monday night as No. 1 Baylor clinched a spot in the women's Final Four with a 77-58 thumping of second-seeded Tennessee in the Des Moines regional final at Wells Fargo Arena. Griner scored 23 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to go along with nine blocks before being one of three Bears ejected in the final minute for coming off the bench during an altercation. It's not known whether Griner will have to miss Sunday night's national semifinal against Stanford.

This year's NFL scouting combine begins Wednesday, unofficially marking the start of draft speculation season. Before the prospects are poked and prodded, though, staff writer Matt Vensel has taken his first crack at predicting the first round of April's NFL draft. (This mock draft does not account for potential trades.) And remember, these are called “mock” drafts for a reason. Try not to take them too seriously. [Blogger's note: Here's the mock draft in photo gallery form if you're a fan of bright, shiny pictures.]

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. Growing up in the shadow of College Park, Stanford Robinson followed Maryland basketball attending the occasional game and becoming a fan of former Terps guard Greivis Vasquez.

Despite facing what will likely be a limited scholarship situation for the 2013 recruiting class, the Maryland basketball staff continues to evaluate a wide range of junior prospects. The latest name to add to the list: Stanford Robinson of Paul VI (Va.). Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard, received a visit this week from Terps coach Mark Turgeon, who watched him practice on Monday. Last week assistant Dalonte Hill had attended one of Robinson's games. “They haven't offered yet but the head coach was out here," Robinson said.

— Stanford's Jordan Williamson slouched in the chair at his locker. His shoulder pads, covered by his No. 19 jersey, tossed at his feet. He cried like a baby, which as a 19-year-old freshman kicker, is exactly what he is. He clearly felt every ounce of the disappointment caused by his leftward kicks. Three missed field goals, including the potential game-winner in the final seconds of regulation, left him nearly disconsolate. That didn't stop his teammates from trying to console him. "He's a human being," running back Stepfan Taylor said.

Andrew Luck may be NFL-ready, but the Stanford quarterback — who could end up joining Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts — said Friday that he would have no problem being drafted by a team with an established quarterback. "I'm sure it would be a positive. I'm sure it would all work out, whatever the situation is," said Luck, who was in Baltimore to accept the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, which goes to college football's top senior or fourth-year junior quarterback.

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is the winner of the 2011 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the top fourth- or fifth-year signal-caller in college football. "Andrew personifies everything that my father stood for. He is not simply an outstanding quarterback, but an outstanding individual, a leader both on and off the field," said John C. Unitas, Jr., President of The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation. Luck, who passed for 3,170 yards and 35 touchdowns for a 167.5 passer rating in leading fourth-ranked Stanford to an 11-1 record, will be presented the award Friday at the Intercontinental Harbor Court downtown.
