COLLEGE PARK -- His Terps use the run-and-shoot offense so it figures that Maryland football coach Mark Duffner has some ideas on how to stop a passing attack.Duffner's teams have faced just about every defense: nickel and dime packages, all-out blitzes, twist and stunts from defensive linemen.But when the Terps (0-4) meet Pittsburgh (2-2) on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Byrd Stadium, Duffner knows there is no simple way to stop quarterback Alex Van Pelt, who directs the Panthers' one-back set.Van Pelt, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior from San Antonio, has completed 85 of 136 passes for 1,222 yards and nine touchdowns this season.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Will the Maryland football team become bowl-eligible for the first time under Randy Edsall? Don Markus: A little over a month ago, it seemed a lock.

They were 4-0 for the first time since 2002 and were ranked in the regular season for the first time since 2008.

PITTSBURGH -- With a victory yesterday over Pitt, the Nittany Lions of Penn State finished their regular season at 10-2. But the contest probably won't figure into many players' fond memories of this successful season.The 32-20 victory over the Panthers took 3 hours and 54 minutes to achieve. But to the players and to the 52,519 spectators at Pitt Stadium, who endured a light rain and icy temperatures, it seemed even longer."It was a long game," said Lou Benfatti, a defensive lineman for Penn State.

GENERAL MANAGER Schulz won't be present this opening day, but the Charlie Brown All-Stars are just as ready as they ever are. Linus Van Pelt at second, Snoopy at short, Lucy Van Pelt lolling in center, her other brother Rerun sucking on his milk bottle in left, Schroeder crouched behind the plate. See them tense up as, on the mound, Charlie rears back to fling the first pitch of the new season. And now the enemy's leadoff man hits it high and far enough to reach the warehouse, on the fly. Wait.

ESPN personality, Terps athletics supporter and noted fan base evaluator Scott Van Pelt was in College Park on Saturday for Maryland's 27-26 win over Virginia . He was happy with the result, of course. He was not happy with the small swath of students who saw it. Starting at the 35:30 mark of Monday's “SVP and Russillo” broadcast, you can hear his rant on what it means to be a fan, and why Saturday's 41,077 attendance figure was such a disappointment. Or you can read the transcript below: Van Pelt: I'm probably going to get in trouble back in College Park for this one, but some things need to be said.

In the old days, Tiger Woods might have won the AT&T National with ease. In the old days, Woods might not have needed his closest competitor to bogey the last three holes at Congressional Country Club. In the old days, Woods might not have stopped to acknowledge the two military officers waiting his arrival at the 18th tee before he made his final putt. In the old days, Woods might not have acknowledged the crowd - twice - and high-fived some volunteers en route to the scoring tent.

Fans who looked closely at Maryland's sideline during the season-opening football game may have been puzzled by what they saw on cards held up by team managers. Was that really a photo of TV talk-show host Regis Philbin, and — if so — what could Philbin, a Notre Dame graduate, possibly have to do with Maryland football? Yes, it was a color photo of the co-host of "Live! With Regis and Kelly. " But why the school chose to display Philbin's image remains as much of a local mystery as which color uniforms the Terps will wear on a given week.

After a workout with the Washington Wizards on Tuesday morning, former Terps big man Jordan Williams said that ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt, a Maryland grad, was among those who advised him while he mulled over entering the NBA draft. Van Pelt “was a big factor in helping me make my decision,” Williams said. “Just giving me feedback, what he thought about it. Just trying to make me make the right decision,” Williams told The Washington Post’s Steve Yanda. “He did a great job, and I give him a lot of credit for going out of his way. … He's a really busy guy, so for him to go out of his way to do that is unbelievable .”  If Van Pelt really did steer Williams to the pros -- even if he was doing it in the player’s best interest -- it won’t go over well with Maryland supporters.
