  • Post-9/11 buildup added billions to Maryland's economy

    Post-9/11 buildup added billions to Maryland's economy
    General Physics Corp. had already built a strong business training police and fire departments in the use of emergency equipment. But after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the doors of opportunity opened even wider. The attacks focused officials at all...
  • September 11: Ten years later, a different world

    Maybe it was the graphic-novel clarity of the images, the perfect geometry of the World Trade Center towers against the flat blue sky, the orange fireballs that blossomed from the puncture wounds. Or perhaps it was the cascading of horrors, a plane...
  • Teel Time: Projecting the NCAA tournament field

    And a good Selection Sunday morning to all! Just perused a mock bracket from Jerry Palm, the bracketologist whom I most respect. Our only disagreement: He has St. Mary's in instead of Colorado. One very interesting part of Palm's field: He seeded Old...
  • Monarchs to face Butler; Hampton draws Duke

    Monarchs to face Butler; Hampton draws Duke
    Last season, Old Dominion won a first-round NCAA tournament game. It was an impressive achievement, but the Monarchs left New Orleans feeling like they could have accomplished more after the high of their 51-50 win against Notre Dame faded in light of...
  • Bypassing Virginia Tech is indefensible

    Bypassing Virginia Tech is indefensible
    Virginia Tech's previous NCAA tournament snubs were debatable. Sunday's was outrageous. UAB and Clemson instead of the Hokies? Please. The 10 selection committee members are supposed to know basketball. They're athletic directors and conference...

  • Barack Obama loves chalk, picks Kansas to win NCAA tourney

    Barack Obama loves chalk, picks Kansas to win NCAA tourney
    President Barack Obama took a break from whatever it is he does around here -- I say that in jest, of course -- to fill out his bracket for the NCAA men's basketball tournament, and it's clear that Obama loves chalk more than your typical grade school...
  • Has it really been 10 years since HU's shocker over Iowa State in the NCAA tournament?

    On that historic night in Boise, Lauren Merfeld was 2 years old. Her little brother, Andrew, wouldn't be born for another four months. But when March rolls around every year, they see the evidence. Whenever CBS shows clips of past NCAA tournament shining...
  • Offense will determine Monarchs' postseason fate

    Old Dominion's early-February loss at George Mason hardly merited breaking-news alerts or a flurry of on-site tweets. The Monarchs' seniors are 0-4 at Mason, with an average deficit of 18.5 points. But this 62-45 flogging was different. Never to be...
  • Rams go "from stepchild to darling" in NCAA tournament

    Rams go "from stepchild to darling" in NCAA tournament
    Strolling down Broad Street on Tuesday, Joey Rodriguez was startled when a man stopped his car in traffic, hopped out with a camera and asked Rodriguez to pose for a photo. This shortly after Rodriguez received a standing ovation from his VCU...
