With stiff competition for limited money in the county's education budget, from classroom supplies to new buildings, it might seem like a mistake for the Carroll County Board of Education to ask for money to staff "timeout" discipline rooms in 10 schools.Suspend the troublemakers and let them and their parents deal with the consequences, rather than burdening the school budget, would be one hard-line response.That reasoning, however, misses the point that schools have always had to deal with problem pupils whose behavior does not justify the more drastic suspension-expulsion process.

Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon was out recruiting Wednesday, and a team spokesman said he was still considering possible discipline for forward Charles Mitchell. The sophomore was sent to the locker room during the first half of the Tuesday night's 64-47 home win over Virginia Tech after being disruptive on the bench. There is a possibility that Mitchell, the team's leading rebounder, could sit out Sunday's regular season finale at home against No. 5 Virginia. Turgeon had said Tuesday night that he spoke with Mitchell after the game and would revisit the incident again Wednesday before making a final determination on any discipline.

LANDOVER -- In the lore of pro football, there are memorable moments known as The Catch, The Drive and The Immaculate Reception.The Ravens and Redskins added to that yesterday with The Timeout.Yes, the first Ravens-Redskins game -- nobody's clamoring for a second one after watching this dreary game -- may have been decided by a timeout.At first glance, the Ravens beat the Redskins, 20-17, on Bam Morris' 176-yard rushing day.But it might have all been for naught except for The Timeout.The Ravens, who have made an art form of blowing fourth-quarter leads, appeared to be at it again when Vinny Testaverde fumbled for the third time and the Redskins recovered at the Ravens' 25 with 9: 25 left.

Former Maryland basketball star Walt Williams, who currently serves as an analyst on the team's radio broadcast at home games, said Wednesday that he heard sophomore forward Charles Mitchell being "disruptive" during a timeout in Tuesday's game against Virginia Tech. The incident led to Mitchell being sent to the locker room by Terps coach Mark Turgeon . Williams said he didn't hear or see what preceeded the timeout. “I was listening to what Mark was telling them at the under 4-minute timeout, and I could hear Charles talking too. You could hear both of them.

NEW ORLEANS -- The Final Four being a college experience, at least in theory, it seems fitting that we sum up what we learned while watching North Carolina win a championship neither big nor easily in the Big Easy.We learned, first and foremost, how ridiculous it is to credit or blame coaches for what happens in the Final Four. It is perfectly fair to judge them on their team's performance over the course of a career or even a single season, but the Final Four is just a dice roll.Consider that Kentucky probably would have beaten Michigan had Jamal Mashburn not committed a foolish fifth foul in overtime of their semifinal.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Two steps. That's all the edge No. 2 Syracuse needed in overtime to upset top-ranked Virginia, 13-12, in college men's lacrosse yesterday before 4,643 at Klockner Stadium. The Cavaliers turned the ball over on their second possession of overtime when coach Dom Starsia called timeout just before defenseman Court Weisleder crossed into the offensive end of the field. Thirty-seven seconds later, Syracuse attackman Ryan Powell barely beat Ryan Curtis on a spin move on the right side of the crease, converting the game-winner with 2: 07 remaining.

WASHINGTON -- It was a game in which the Boston Celtics should never have had a shot at victory. And when a potential game-winning three-pointer by Boston guard Dana Barros bounced just long, Juwan Howard jumped high to snatch the rebound, handed the ball to Washington Wizards teammate Chris Whitney and walked off the court with a sheepish smile.Howard knew he had dodged a big bullet, having committed a blunder that had shades of Michigan all over it. With 10 seconds to go and a three-point lead, he called a timeout when the Wizards didn't have any. But, unlike the 1993 NCAA title game when Chris Webber's mistake cost Michigan a chance at a championship, the Wizards were able to escape a 49-point offensive explosion by Celtics forward Antoine Walker with a 110-108 win before a sellout crowd of 20,674 at the MCI Center.

Chris Webber left the court immediately. He didn't stop to shake hands with any North Carolina players. He didn't stop to hug his teammates, as did the other members of the Fab Five.He just took off for the locker room as the Carolina players were jumping into each other's arms at midcourt, celebrating a national championship won in a five-star thriller last night at the Superdome.Who knows what Webber was thinking? How deep was his embarrassment?He had played a magnificent game, scoring 23 points despite constant harassment around the basket, yet all anyone would ever remember -- for years, they will remember it, be sure of that -- was the timeout he called with 11 seconds left.

Nobody has to tell the 13th-ranked Towson Generals about the importance of a well-placed timeout. Those who didn't already know found out near the end of the first half yesterday against No. 14 Hereford.With her team trailing 6-4 and looking sluggish, coach Wendy Kridel called a timeout 3: 41 before the break to regroup. The host Generals responded in a big way, scoring 11 of the game's final 13 goals in a 15-8 victory."That really helped us pull it together," said Towson junior attack Eva Claire Synkowski.

Mike Pereira, NFL senior vice president of officiating, agreed with all the controversial calls made by the officials during the Ravens' 27-24 Monday night loss to New England. In addressing Samari Rolle's accusation that head linesman Phil McKinnely repeatedly called the cornerback "boy," Pereira said McKinnely's "interpretation" of the situation was different from Rolle's. He also found no fault in how McKinnely handled the situation. "Phil, in my mind, acted as he should," Pereira said on the NFL Network.

The Sun's recent editorial regarding student testing ("Md. should skip the MSA," Sept. 17) offered thought-provoking insight, yielding additional perspective. Citizens are already advised that test scores will flatten next year as they did this year. No Child Left Behind has been underfunded, students may not be taught Maryland School Assessment material but will receive MSA testing, and the Core Curriculum asks teachers to teach critical thinking without specific guidelines as to how to do so. Education majors study lesson planning, not curriculum development and implementation, although their teacher evaluations and their jobs will depend on teaching Core Curriculum well.

It may be tempting for Washington College to view the 17-13 loss to Stevenson in the second round of the NCAA tournament as a moral victory. The Shoremen outplayed the Mustangs for the first 54 minutes of the contest at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills and chased out freshman goalkeeper Dimitri Pecunes after the first quarter. (Pecunes, however, did return and spark Stevenson to the win.) And if Washington was going to lose, at least it lost to the team that eventually captured the national championship with 16-14 decision over Rochester Institute of Technology on May 26. But that was of little consolation to the program and coach Jeff Shirk.

The NCAA Women's Lacrosse Rules Committee has recommended several rules changes for next season, including that players on the defensive team be allowed to move through any portion of their goal circle when their team is not in possession of the ball. Currently, only the goalkeeper is allowed to be in the defensive goal circle, with the exception of a player entering the crease after the goalkeeper has moved outside the goal circle. Under the recommended new rules, only the defender marking the player with the ball within a stick's length could remain in the goal circle.

ESPN analyst Paul Carcaterra participated in a Q&A Monday. The former Syracuse All-American midfielder, who can be followed on Twitter via @paulcarcaterra, also offered parting commentary on the three programs from Maryland that were in the NCAA tournament - sixth-seeded Maryland, Loyola and Towson. After Maryland's 16-8 loss to Cornell Sunday, senior long-stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt and senior midfielder John Haus said the setback would not define a senior class that had advanced to back-to-back NCAA title games without winning the championship.

Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston answers a selection of reader questions on the Ravens' loss to the Denver Broncos. Paul in Cape Cod: I know common sense dictates franchising him next year, but what are the chances of the Ravens simply cutting Joe Flacco loose before the start of next year or even trying to trade him? Mike Preston: Paul, there is zero chance that the Ravens just let Joe Flacco walk away at the end of this season.   The Ravens have invested too much time in him.   Flacco will be franchised, unless his asking price comes way down on a contract.

With under three minutes to play in the third quarter and his team managing a slim lead against No. 1 Mount St. Joseph, Archbishop Spalding boys basketball coach Derrick Lewis saw something he didn't like and promptly called timeout. In the huddle, he challenged his players with a simple question: "Are you guys scared to win this game?" he asked. The No. 8 Cavaliers' response was an impressive one. Along with diving for loose balls and grabbing tough rebounds — the little things Lewis wanted to see — Spalding got an inspiring second-half shooting performance from guard Jourdan Grant to pull off a stunning 81-71 home win Tuesday night in Severn.

Harbaugh was flagged late in the fourth quarter for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Following the game, Harbaugh admitted he bumped an official, but said that it was inadvertent while he was trying to make a timeout call.

Major League Lacrosse announced Wednesday that it will implement instant replay on scoring plays for the 2013 season. Specifically, replay will be used to determine only whether the ball had completely crossed the plane of the goal; whether a goal scored should be counted as a one- or two-point goal; or whether the last player in possession of the ball prior to the shot on goal had stepped in the crease before the ball crossed the plane of the...
