Texas A&M introduced its new men's basketball coach, Billy Kennedy, on Monday. During the press conference, the former Murray State coach, who has made 13 stops in his 26 years on the college circuit, praised his predecessor, new Maryland coach Mark Turgeon. He then explained why the Texas A&M gig was his "dream job. " In doing so, he made an interesting reference to Turgeon. "This is a dream job for me. I don’t want to go anywhere," Kennedy told reporters, according to The Houston Chronicle . "There’s no Maryland, Kansas, Carolina, wherever.

Banners welcoming Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel to Under Armour's Locust Point headquarters have sparked rumors of a potential endorsement deal. The Sun reported Monday on the appearance of the signs, including a banner that said, "Welcome To Our House, Johnny. " But the sports apparel and footwear brand has no news to share regarding the high profile Texas A&M football player known as "Johnny Football," an Under Armour executive said Wednesday. "We have athletes and schools come and visit us, to see the campus or talk about potential deals, but we have nothing to announce on Johnny Manziel," said Matt Mirchin, Under Armour executive vice president of global marketing.

But despite his relative lack of familiarity with the university, Hibbert quickly discovered that Gardner-Webb was a “good fit academically and on the floor.” Hibbert, an East Baltimore native who played three years at Texas A&M, announced his intentions to transfer to the Big South school...

The NFL draft is four months away -- it got bumped back to May this year -- and the college football season just wrapped up. But that hasn't stopped some draft analysts from putting out early mock drafts. (It may seem a little too early to start thinking about all that, but the insatiable demand for draft information is undeniable. Watch. This blog post will be one of the most-clicked items on our website by lunchtime.) General manager Ozzie Newsome said Wednesday that the Ravens will be looking for bigger, stronger offensive linemen, a sure-handed wide receiver and an athletic safety during the offseason.

The Maryland women's basketball team was forced to come back twice from double-digit deficits Sunday in its NCAA tournament Sweet 16 game against defending national champion Texas A&M at PNC Arena. The first comeback, after being down 18 points with 6:40 left in the first half, fell a little short, when a two-handed halfcourt heave by freshman guard Brene Moseley hit the backboard and then bounced off the front rim. It left the second-seeded Terps trailing the third-seeded Aggies by three points.

Aggies on the rise Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune Great question. You wonder if Texas A&M's leadership has even gotten that far in weighing the pros and cons of deserting the Big 12. What's fueling this move is the Aggies' inferiority complex to Texas. It's certainly not a desire to form a rivalry with Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. Bottom line, the Aggies have been only marginally competitive in the Big 12 for the last 15 years. The temptation is to say that with A&M moving up in class to the SEC, the Aggies will get crushed like a folding chair under the weight of a Longhorn.

Since his freshman year, Emmanuel Toney has told anyone at Annapolis Area Christian School who would listen that he planned on playing college basketball at a Division I school in Texas. Now that the 6-foot-2, 185-pound combo guard is a Texas A&M-Corpus Christi commitment, life has felt “kind of surreal.” “My recruitment was going slow for awhile,” said Toney, who pledged to the Islanders last month. “I had some looks, DII and DIII, and a couple DI. And then this year, it was just like, I don't want to say a miracle, but my hard work paid off. [The coaches]

Antonio Barton had only a handful of Division I basketball programs interested in him three years ago coming out Notre Dame Prep in Massachusetts, where he spent a post-grad year after playing his senior season at Lake Clifton. When Barton announced his intentions to leave Memphis last month and finish his college career elsewhere, the 6-2 point guard from Baltimore said that some two dozen schools contacted him about transferring. Barton, who reportedly has narrowed his list down to four schools, said last week that he expects to make his decision Sunday.

Statistics don't always tell the whole story for Mark Turgeon's teams, but based on how poorly Maryland rebounded and how rarely the Terps turned passes into baskets his first season, you might have thought a somewhat respectable 17-15 record was a mirage. Conversely, it is easy to understand why Maryland is 5-1 this season and why the Terps look more like a team - potentially a pretty good one after Tuesday's impressive 77-57 road win at Northwestern - than at any point in Turgeon's time in College Park.

When Mark Turgeon decided to leave Texas A&M for Maryland last May, this is what he envisioned at Comcast Center: a hyped-up, sellout crowd arriving early and providing a palpable buzz that would put his team's opponent at a decided disadvantage. With the exception of one home game in November -- an ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchup with Illinois -- the Terps could have been playing in any arena where the expectations are as low as the decibel level. That is likely to change tonight, when Turgeon will get a taste of what Comcast Center had been for most of its nine seasons under his predecessor.

Maryland announced its basketball recruiting class -- the school said the group is ranked 17th in ESPN.com's national team rankings -- and said it still hopes to add a player or two during the late signing period. "I expected to have one more signed. I thought we had one more in our back pocket, and it didn't get done," coach Mark Turgeon said. "We're still actively trying to get some things done," Turgeon said.
