COLLEGE PARK - On the days when his body hurt the most, when it seemed like nothing - not painkillers, not ice, not hours of therapy - could quell the throbbing pain in his ankles, shoulder and groin, Bruce Perry would limp to his car, point it north on Interstate 95 and drive. It was something he did often, travel home to Philadelphia, but when things were at their worst, the drive meant that much more, because it was all he could do to stay sane. Even at 75 mph, it seemed like the trip took forever.

MALCOLM: THE LIFEOF A MAN WHO CHANGEDBLACK AMERICA.Bruce Perry.Station Hill Press.542 pages. $24.95.Before reading this book, admirers of Malcolm X had best sit down and have a stiff belt of their favorite potent potable. According to Bruce Perry, Malcolm X -- born Malcolm Little -- was considered a sissy by his boyhood companions; had serious doubts about his manhood and a streak of misogyny that drove him to at least two homosexual trysts in his teen years; and firebombed his own house the week before his assassination Feb. 21, 1965.

A couple weeks into training camp, Bruce Perry's tenuous hold on Maryland's starting tailback job was slipping away. Ailing hamstrings separated Perry from most of his teammates, relegating him to a pack of injured players who went through a set of grueling calisthenics while the conditioning staff watched. The barrel rolls, performed on artificial turf under a scorching sun, were Perry's breaking point. He pulled off his helmet and, with an anguished face, spewed a river of invective before asking, "What does this have to do with the game?"

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland's 56-23 loss to Florida in the Orange Bowl may have only been 113 days ago, but it seems like a lot more time has passed heading into Saturday afternoon's spring football scrimmage. "It's nice, but it's gone," said coach Ralph Friedgen, referring to a 10-2 record and an Atlantic Coast Conference title in 2001. The only residual effect is that players know the effort required for victory. "I haven't seen it slack off. We're just missing 19 really good football players," Friedgen said.

Can Bruce Perry stay healthy enough to return to his 2001 form? Don't bet on it. Perry (above) is incredibly talented, and he works hard, but lately a cloud of bad luck seems to be following him. Injuries to his shoulder, groin and abdominal muscles shelved him most of last year, and this season he's already dealing with a high ankle sprain that will keep him out for at least the opener. Luckily for the Terps, Perry's backup, Josh Allen, has played well in his absence and looks like a future star.

COLLEGE PARK - It's tough to make out what it means when Mario Merrills practices with the first-unit offense as tailback for the Maryland football team. It could mean Terrapins coach Ralph Friedgen genuinely wonders about the progress of star running back Bruce Perry - who has spent most of the past eight months recovering from an abdominal injury - and wants to move on to the next guy in line, which would be Merrills. It could also mean Friedgen is merely attempting to motivate Perry.

COLLEGE PARK -- The possibility of Bruce Perry's return beckons again as the 4-2 Maryland football team prepares for its Saturday game at Duke (2-5). Perry had a strong Monday night practice, and the team's coaching staff is hopeful he might play for the first time since a hobbled performance against Florida in the Jan. 2 Orange Bowl. "He played the best he has since the injury," said coach Ralph Friedgen, whose team hopes to improve its 1-1 league record. "It will be important how he is today after last night."

COLLEGE PARK - "What," the football player wanted to know, "can you do to help us win?" Maryland linebacker Aaron Thompson, just off his third straight losing season, asked that question last November as he stared into the eyes of Ralph Friedgen, who was about to replace Ron Vanderlinden as the head coach in College Park. Friedgen told Thompson and the rest of the players interviewing him that he would first teach them how not to lose. Then he would teach them how to win. In moving to a 7-0 record and a No. 10 national ranking heading into Saturday's game at No. 19 Florida State, many of the same players who finished 5-6 last season have displayed mastery of the first lesson and increasing grasp of the second.

COLLEGE PARK - Old is new at Byrd Stadium, where full stands, excitement and wins currently reign. Using scoring bursts in the second and fourth quarters, the 25th-ranked Maryland football team pulled away from Virginia twice yesterday during a 41-21 win for sole possession of the Atlantic Coast Conference lead. The Terrapins scored 24 points in the second quarter to bust open a scoreless game. Then they got 17 more in the final stanza to put away the Cavaliers (3-2, 2-1 ACC), who had closed to 24-21 after three quarters.
