Contributor Larry Hogan has written one more anti-O'Malley screed comparing Virginia to Maryland, but he has ignored the facts about the two state governments ("Look to Va. For how to grow private investment," Feb. 3). According to theU.S. Census Bureaustatistics for 2010, Maryland state government has 88,318 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees while Virginia has 124,709.

We've just returned from vacation in Virginia and were struck by the number of campaign signs for the governor's race. As a former Republican (and a loyal one at that), I'm always saddened when I see a candidate commit "suicide by tea. " The GOP must learn that if they want to win meaningful elections, they have to give the tea party a wide berth once the party's candidate has been secured. This group of right-wing radicals has hijacked the primary system nationwide, and it's frightening to watch the fallout.

With Maryland leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Big Ten after this season, the Terps could bid farewell to a number of long-standing rivalries.

COLLEGE PARK -- After struggling through what he called "unacceptable" performances in the first two games of the season, Maryland football quarterback C.J. Brown declared: "As I go, the offense will go, I understand that. " Said last Tuesday without a hint of bravado, it's about as close to a boast the sixth-year graduate student can muster. Considering the way things started out for Brown and the Terps on Saturday, that statement could have bitten him. But it's also the truth, which, depending on how you look at Brown's performance in a 40-37 defeat to West Virginia (2-1)

COLLEGE PARK  -   The Maryland football team puts together a preliminary scouting report of each opponent on its schedule during the summer, scanning through last season's film to get an early feel for what a team might look like this season. For West Virginia, the tape would have shown a mediocre team that finished 4-8 and had problems on offense and defense. A year later, the Mountaineers are much better, as Terps coach Randy Edsall and his staff saw Sunday when they began reviewing West Virginia's early-season tape.

Maryland narrowly escaped with a 24-17 win Saturday over South Florida , a team that was just 2-10 last season and that struggled with a lowly FCS program (Western Carolina) the week before. Nevertheless, the Terps begin this week as a three-point favorite over West Virginia, according to ESPN.com. West Virginia travels to face Maryland on Saturday in College Park, a game that will provide the biggest indicator to this point of just how good the Terps can be. The Mountaineers beat Towson 54-0 on Saturday and hung with No. 3 Alabama in Week 1 before falling 33-23.
