As a former college baseball coach, I implore Towson University President Maravene S. Loeschke to reconsider her decision to drop the school's baseball and soccer programs ("Ire grows after Towson president cuts two teams," March 24). We all know there are other, fairer solutions that would allow the school to be in compliance with Title IX, but they require more effort on her part. I have coached baseball for 27 years at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science, Lafayette College and Penn State University, and I cherished my relationship with Towson University coaches Billy Hunter and Mike Gottlieb.

Maryland Gov.-elect Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has indicated that he would be supportive of a second major-league baseball team in the region, but only if studies prove that it would not do serious economic harm to the Orioles. Ehrlich told The Washington Post on Friday that he was supportive of the efforts to bring big-league baseball back to the nation's capital, but a spokeswoman for the incoming governor said that his comments were based on the belief that the new team would draw from a different population base than the Orioles.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Orioles owner Peter Angelos finds himself in an awkward position these days as the man most opposed to the idea of baseball moving a team to the nation's capital. When commissioner Bud Selig called the Washington area a prime candidate for relocation, Angelos didn't address the issue for two months. But Angelos finally broke his silence yesterday, in part of a wide-ranging telephone interview with The Sun, saying he opposes such a move because it would hurt the Orioles - and the Washington-area team, too. "Two teams," Angelos said, "within the present territory in which the Orioles' fan base lies, would guarantee that you'd probably have two also-rans or two non-competitive teams beginning each season with very little hope of progressing to the playoffs.

Under a bright, sunny sky, a miniature rocket is poised for liftoff in a grassy field at Centennial High School in Ellicott City. "Five, four, three, two, one ... " counts down Kevin Johnson, a member of the National Association of Rocketry, before he flips a switch. Seconds later, a 28 1/2 -inch rocket ascends with flames shooting from its tail. After reaching about 1,200 feet, a red parachute appears and floats gracefully near a running track about 100 yards away. Back on the ground, eight excited students of Howard County public schools' Technology Magnet Energy Power and Transportation Program jump up and down, giving one another high-fives.

Pennsylvania@Drexel 10 a.m. [ESPN] I look at it this way: If these two teams are going to play basketball in the middle of the morning, the least you can do is watch. Plus, given that their campuses are next to each other, maybe parking spaces are on the line.

For top-seeded Duke, No. 5 Denver, No. 6 Notre Dame and No. 7 Maryland, Saturday's semifinal round of the NCAA tournament at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore takes center stage in terms of preparation and focus. But for two of those teams, Monday's title game is nearly as imposing. Championship weekend presents the two programs that advance to the tournament final with the unique dilemma of going all-out in Saturday's semifinals, recovering physically on Sunday, and finding enough in the fuel tank to play in Monday's final.

The Ravens' 8-8 record last year, and the third-place schedule that comes with it for the 2014 season, could have been an advantage over division rivals Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.    Upon Wednesday night's release of the 2014 schedule , it appears some of those advantages have been mitigated.   Cincinnati's schedule is similar to the Ravens', save for two opponents, but the Ravens' and Steelers' schedules are essentially flipped. If the Ravens travel to a non-divisional opponent in the two crossover divisions, the AFC South and NFC South, the Steelers get them at home.

OXFORD, OHIO -- John and Jim Harbaugh are teaming up to orchestrate what they believe is another first. The head coaching brothers have scheduled joint practices between John's Ravens and Jim's San Francisco 49ers following the matchup between the two teams in Week One of the preseason on Thursday, Aug. 7 at M&T Bank Stadium. While more and more NFL teams are engaging in joint practices during training camp - the Ravens have not done it in recent seasons - those workouts typically occur in the days before the teams play in the preseason.

Hey, I can be optimistic for only so long. (I'm kidding. Optimism isn't my strength). By Game 4, with the Orioles having dropped three straight and struggling on the mound and in the batter's box, it's worth mentioning a few of their most troubling numbers so far. To be fair, it's also worth pointing out that the Orioles have played four games. That's 2 percent of the season. There is absolutely, positively no reason to panic yet, especially considering that the two teams they have played met in a six-game American League Championship Series last year.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - On the day before the women's Final Four, commentators and fans inside Bridgestone Arena used words like "epic" and "historic" to describe an almost irresistible championship game matchup of unbeaten teams to rival college football's 1971 "game of the century" between Oklahoma and Nebraska. The scenario's only problem is that this behemoth of a game - a certain ratings blockbuster as Connecticut and Notre Dame seek to complete perfect seasons in Tuesday night's finals - is not preordained.

College football has long been an afterthought in Maryland. At best, it's been a pleasant Saturday interlude between the buildup during the week and the battles that usually take place the next day for the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins. At worst, it's been an occasional blip on the national consciousness. Things won't change dramatically because two of the state's Division I football teams - Maryland and Towson - are both unbeaten and nationally ranked in their respective subdivisions.

Baltimore should aggressively pursue an NFL expansion franchise, say respondents to "It's Your Call," even though they're not convinced the city will get one if the league decides to add two teams.Seventy-eight percent of those who called (342 of 440) said the city should continue to push aggressively for a team, but only 64 percent thought Baltimore would get a team if the NFL owners follow commissioner Paul Tagliabue's wishes to add two teams by 1993."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

On game nights like Tuesday, the televisions in Gary Rissling's restaurants show Washington Capitals' hockey contests. But he'd gladly tune in to watch a local team, should Baltimore one day get back on the ice. "Can you imagine a rink built beside M&T Bank Stadium, with a team playing hockey in a tough Ravens' style?" said Rissling, of Monkton, a hard-nosed forward who played for the Skipjacks from 1982-87. Owner of three Silver Spring Mining Company restaurants, he plans to attend Tuesday night's National Hockey League preseason game, dubbed the Baltimore Hockey Classic, between the Capitals and Boston Bruins at the Baltimore Arena (7 p.m.)
