COLLEGE PARK -- Through Maryland's first six games, wide receiver Jermaine Lewis was frustrated by tight coverage, a game plan that looked elsewhere and an injury.He broke loose in game four with two touchdown catches in a blowout of Wake Forest, but before that game was done, he was sidelined with a dislocated shoulder. When North Carolina limited Lewis to one catch on Oct. 15, his season totals were 14 catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns.Since then, however, he's been on a tear.Lewis has 100 yards receiving in each of Maryland's last four games, and his totals during that span are 26 catches for 452 yards -- 17.4 per catch -- and six touchdowns.

COLLEGE PARK -- He is following in the footsteps of James Milling, Ferrell Edmunds, Barry Johnson and Gene Thomas.Marcus Badgett is now Maryland's big-play performer.It's a title he cherishes."I admit, I kind of like it," said Badgett, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior wide receiver.Badgett has picked up where he left off last season. He's making diving catches. He's leaping over defenders, snatching one-handed passes with those long, skinny fingers. He's going over the middle, turning short slant-ins into long gainers.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Maryland was down by four points on its 11-yard line with no timeouts and 24 seconds left. That's when Terps wide receiver Marcus Badgett walked into the huddle and winked at quarterback John Kaleo. Maryland had Duke just where it wanted the Blue Devils."We practice these type of plays at the end of practice every week," Kaleo said."If you don't have confidence, run two running plays, catch the bus and go back to College Park as a loser. You just gotta believe."Oh, miracles still do exist.

ELMONT, N.Y. -- "I hear McAnally's horse worked pretty fast," Jack Van Berg said around his breakfast chicken wings.Everybody at Belmont Park had heard that the champion mare Bayakoa, trained by Ron McAnally, worked fast in her final exercise before the $1 million Breeders' Cup Distaff on Saturday. In gossipy racetrack tradition, they were suggesting she worked too fast for her own good."I told [jockey Aaron] Gryder to let her do what she wants," McAnally said. She wanted to run: seven furlongs in 1:22 4/5, the kind of time that wins races.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- A few minutes after the Albany Firebirds had beaten the Cincinnati Rockers, 50-9, three players gathered in the trainer's room at Knickerbocker Arena, joined hands and began to sing their fight song, the one that ends, "M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D, Maryland will win."It wasn't an immediate hit with their teammates.The protestations grew loud well before the trio of Terrapins had finished the refrain.Mitch Suplee, John Kaleo and Marcus Badgett aren't at the University of Maryland anymore, though some of their teammates on the Arena Football League team probably had heard the song before.

COLLEGE PARK -- When his uncle asked him if he wanted to go to Pitt, Dan Prunzik shrugged. He hadn't heard a word from Pitt's recruiters. No, don't bother to put in a good word.His uncle, Frank Gustine, is a Pitt alumnus, a quarterback who played for the Panthers in the late 1960s. When Prunzik was growing up in Pittsburgh, Uncle Frank took him to the school's football and basketball games."We used to go in the locker room and meet all the players," Prunzik said. "I grew up a Pitt fan. I loved Pitt."

Marcus Badgett and Andre Vaughn slipped through the cracks of the NFL draft a year ago, victims of a cold, calculating system that relies almost solely on numbers.For Badgett, the operative figure was 4.6 seconds, his time in the 40 yards. Too slow for a wide receiver, the NFL said.For Vaughn, the number was two, as in knee operations and college seasons spent at defensive back. Too many operations, too little time, the NFL opined.It is perhaps fitting, then, that the two former Maryland stars have resurfaced in the longer, wider, faster Canadian Football League.

COLLEGE PARK -- Neither University of Maryland linebacker Mike Jarmolowich nor H-back Frank Wycheck, the team's top two prospects, are optimistic about being selected in today's NFL draft.Jarmolowich was expected to go in the middle or late rounds, but has not worked out for NFL scouts because of a pulled hamstring which he injured nearly a month and a half ago.Jarmolowich led the Terps in tackles last season with 110, and and is No. 3 on Maryland's all-time tackle list with 400."A number of the scouts talked to me, but I stood around while the other guys worked out," said Jarmolowich, who spent a month in Atlanta with Loren Seagraves to increase his speed.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Though Maryland players were confident late in the Terps' 27-25 win over Duke yesterday at Wallace Wade Stadium, they had had a lot of bad breaks and mistakes during the game.* Duke place-kicker Randy Gardner missed a 31-yard field-goal try with 13:23 left in the half, but Maryland's Bill Inge was called for roughing the kicker. On the next play, Duke tailback Randy Cuthbert scored on a 7-yard run.* Maryland quarterback John Kaleo threw into triple coverage and was intercepted to kill a drive at the Duke 29 with 3:48 left in game.

COLLEGE PARK -- For the first time since John Kaleo began directing Maryland's run-and-shoot offense, the kid threw in a clinker last weekend against Georgia Tech.Kaleo went 20-for-41 for 264 yards but had four interceptions."I knew I had a bad game," he said. "In my position, that's going to happen. I was making poor decisions, throwing interceptions when I should have eaten the ball."But you just have to eliminate stupid decision-making, put it in the past and go on. I didn't do my part in the last game and I have to do it for us to be successful.
