When I reported that the Orioles had held a brief workout for lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes at Camden Yards on Thursday, I received a whole lot of age jokes on my Twitter account. For once, they weren't aimed at me. Rhodes, who didn't pitch professionally in 2012 and was last seen winning a World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011, turned 43 in October. (That's actually slightly older than me, so take that). I think the best line I saw on Twitter was from the guy who asked me if Rhodes had developed a deer-antler spitball to get hitters out. Hey, insulting and topical.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Can Pe'Shon Howard still be valuable to the Terps despite his shooting woes? Jeff Barker: It's been an uneven ride for Howard, but there are absolutely ways he can - and I think will - contribute.  I'm not sure that experience-challenged Maryland could afford to turn its back on the junior even if it wanted to. It needs him. One way Howard aids the Terps is on defense.

The NCAA Division I Board of Directors voted Saturday in favor of deregulation that will affect a wide swath of the rulebook for all sports, including getting rid of a ban on text messages from coaches to recruits. In all, 25 of 26 proposals recomended last month by the NCAA Rules Working Group were approved and will go into effect Aug. 1. The board delayed action on one of the most controversial - a uniform start date for recruiting. The presidents asked the Rules Working Group to expedite its study of the issue and return with a solution as soon as possible.

Eighteen charter schools seeking contract renewals to continue operating in Baltimore are undergoing a rigorous review process that will uniformly evaluate them for the first time since they began populating the district 10 years ago. The majority of the city's charter schools, which are autonomous but receive funding from the school system, were opened under schools CEO Andrés Alonso, who had called them "engines for reform. " Their populations have ballooned to encompass nearly 13 percent of city students, and their presence has helped raise Baltimore's profile as a district of school choice.

For those of you anticipating the return of the "Maryland Pride" football uniforms, the wait appears to be over. Maryland is planning to wear the uniforms - yes, THOSE uniforms - for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech, according to multiple folks in the know. The school hasn't yet made an announcement. These uniforms will actually be a variation (different color scheme, I'm told) than the multi-colored Under Armour creations that debuted in last season's opener against Miami.

Let's face it: there's ugly and then there's ugly. But the retro unis the Pittsburgh Steelers wore Sunday while beating the Washington Redskins 27-12 elevated ugliness to a new height, or plunged it to a new depth, whichever way you want to go. Garish yellow jerseys with black stripes and black numbers in a white box? They looked like giant bumblebees straight out of San Quentin. The tan pants were an equally hideous touch. It was as if the uniform designer thought: "What's  the worst possible color to match with yellow and horizontal black stripes?

To become a barber in Maryland, you need to have completed 1,200 hours of classroom instruction or 2,250 hours as an apprentice. The state requires licensed foresters to have a four-year college degree in forestry, two years of experience and five references. You even need to pass an exam to work as an interior designer. But all it takes to be given the power to detain people, search them and even arrest them is to fill out a two-page form. No training required, and for all intents and purposes, no oversight.

As if Maryland's offensive line needed another issue, the Terps will be without senior guard Bennett Fulper for Saturday's homecoming game against N.C. State. Two other offensive lineman are also in the injury report. Sal Conaboy (ankle) is doubtful and Justin Gilbert (knee) is questionable Fulper has turf toe and also seems to have an ankle problem. He had started every game for the Terps this season at left guard. Junior Josh Cary is likely to take his place. Also out Saturday: safety Matt Robinson (groin)

Ravens defensive tackle Terrence Cody became national talk radio fodder Friday after he and a pair of teammates were quoted in a Wall Street Journal article entitled “Does this New Uniform Make Me Look Fat?” In the article, Cody said he didn't care for the new uniforms from Nike, which replaced Reebok as the league's official uniform supplier this season, because the jerseys tighten up when they get wet and ride up his body . The 350-pound lineman said he thought that Nike should put different material in the jerseys for "the big guys.
