As a Baltimore native and alumna of West Virginia University, I am disappointed by the University of Maryland's decision to deny permission for the West Virginia University Marching Band (aka "The Pride of West Virginia") to perform at Saturday's game ( "West Virginia's band won't play Saturday, and West Virginia fans are not happy," Sept. 18). Not only am I a WVU alumna, but I am a band alumna. Twice during my time in The Pride, we traveled to College Park to share the field with the UM band.

It has come to my attention that the West Virginia University band will not be permitted by the University of Maryland's athletic director to perform for either pre-game show or at half-time at the upcoming Maryland/WVU football game at M&T Bank Stadium (" West Virginia's band won't play Saturday, and West Virginia fans are not happy," Sept. 18). Maryland's previous athletic director never had this policy, and there is a history of both bands performing on each other's fields. This is not only a rude and petty action, it is a poor reflection on the state of Maryland.

COLLEGE PARK - They left Washington as friendly rivals, respecting each other's talents and having formed a bond from summer camps and scouting combines. They reunited as teammates briefly, first at the University of New Mexico and later at a junior college In Iowa. They are now back together, "like brothers" they say, hoping to help revive a Maryland football team that has won just six games in Randy Edsall's first two seasons. Each could play a significant role under offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, the coach and confidante who has figured in their lives for years.

To say Kirk Hazen is surprised by how some folks are reacting to his theory that there is no incorrect way of speaking is an understatement. Hazen, a 30-year-old linguistics professor at West Virginia University, stumbled into the limelight last fall after writing an article on the university's West Virginia Dialects Project for the school's alumni magazine. Essentially, Hazen maintains that one cannot equate dialect with intelligence. His theory hit the news wires, and within a few weeks, he was fielding calls from reporters, and his supervisors were fielding complaints from people -- including some alumni -- demanding the professor's resignation.
