For Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah, it was a strange feeling to return to Tampa for the first time since being traded to the Ravens in March in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Zuttah had played and started for the Buccaneers for six years before the offseason transaction. “There was a time when I was bitter,” said Zuttah, who was signed to a five-year, $18 million contract extension after the trade. “Once I got to Baltimore, that was out the window. I'm just happy to be a part of this organization.” On Sunday, Zuttah had to adjust to lining up on the opponents' sideline and getting dressed in the visitors' locker room.

TAMPA, FLA. -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has several other issues going on right now, but there is another one he needs to address. The quality of play in the league continues to drop off, and it was certainly evident Sunday as the Ravens routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 48-17. League loyalists like to talk about parity, but some of these games and teams have become an embarrassment, and several are still on the Ravens schedule like Atlanta, which struggles to win a game on the road, and Jacksonville, which finds it hard to win anywhere.

I am so upset over the news that the University of Maryland may cut so many teams to address the athletic department's deficit ("Eight teams targeted to be cut," Nov. 15). With all state money the University of Maryland receives, this is not understandable! Where will out future Olympians train and who will be able to partake? Bettye A. Frantz, Gwynn Oak

Disregard Nate Silver David Teel Daily Press Nate Silver likes Louisville, Florida, Indiana and Gonzaga, and given his Obama-Romney projections, disagreeing is perilous. But let's anyway. Ohio State has won eight straight, including a road conquest of Indiana and Big Ten tournament wins over Michigan State and Wisconsin. Miami won the ACC regular season outright, and the league tournament, and six of the last eight teams with that double have reached the Final Four.

The NCAA men's lacrosse tournament will expand to 18 teams the next two seasons with the addition of a pair of play-in games, Lacrosse Magazine reported Wednesday afternoon . The play-in games will involve the four teams that earn the lowest-ranked automatic qualifiers to the tournament. The reason for this is that the NCAA wants to maintain a 50-50 balance in the tournament between automatic qualifier and at-large bids. The 2014 tournament will feature 10 automatic qualifiers for the first time, with the additions of berths for the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Atlantic Sun. The play-in games will eliminate two AQ teams from the bracket, leaving eight AQs and eight at-larges.

We're less than a week into the 2011 MLB season, but recent history shows that the undefeated Orioles are in pretty good shape to return to the playoffs at season's end. Meanwhile, the winless Red Sox and Rays are already on the ropes. According to data provided to USA Today by the Elias Sports Bureau, 20 teams have started a season 4-0 since 1995, which was the beginning of the wild-card era. Twelve of those teams -- that's 60 percent -- have made the playoffs. Meanwhile, 25 teams got off to a 0-4 start in that span, and only two -- eight percent -- made it to the postseason: the 1995 Reds and 1999 Diamondbacks.

Those are the Royals over there in front of all the cameras. That's Eric Hosmer on the cover of Sports Illustrated. That's him and his teammates making the funnest kind of off-the-field news by dropping around $15,000 on a bar tab to say thank you to fans. That's James Shields starting for the third time in five playoff games for a franchise writing a brilliant, welcome and enthralling new history. And that's George Brett, off to the side - always off to the side now - thankful for it all and saying something that may surprise you. “I'm tired of talking about 1985, I really am,” he says.

But if Scott Sharp makes it to Camden Yards for the American League Championship Series, he won't be wearing a speck of orange or black. Those colors faded long ago for the Sykesville native. Sharp, 41, is the Kansas City Royals' director of player development, and he's quite happy to be sporting royal blue these days as his team prepares to face the Orioles in the ALCS.

Towson University President Maravene S. Loeschke's decision to discontinue the men's soccer and baseball programs and add men's tennis blew my athletic socks off and bruised my heart and soul ("Towson criticized for cutting sports teams," March 21). As a graduate of what was then known as Towson State Teacher College (Class of 1942), my experiences as a student athlete there had a big effect on my later life. From athletic director Donald I. Minnegan, for example, I learned to eradicate the word "no" from my vocabulary.

In roller derby, a name says it all. The Hazard County Hellions, Harford County's only roller derby team, chose a name that seems wild and mischievous, a stark contrast to the responsible citizens who form the team. In this sport, theatrics are just as much a part of a match as athletics, and its players, no matter how shy or timid they seem by day, take on sassy, aggressive alter egos when they lace up their skates. Formed in 2013, the co-ed team is part of MADE (Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor)
