College Park -- Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen has done this before - it's his players who don't have the blueprint.

When he took over the program in 2001, Friedgen was faced with the task of improving on back-to-back 5-6 seasons. On his first try, Maryland surged and Friedgen directed the Terps to a 10-win season and the Atlantic Coast Conference championship.

Hurricanes to honor Pata

The Miami Hurricanes will wear No. 95 stickers on their helmets during today's game at Maryland in memory of defensive lineman Bryan Pata, who was fatally shot Tuesday night in Miami, just hours after practice ended. The university also is setting up a scholarship fund in his name, a school spokesman said. Pata's funeral will be Tuesday in Miami, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The university will hold a memorial service Wednesday on campus. There will be a moment of silence before today's game.
