COLLEGE PARK - As it turns out, Maryland's football team won't have to wait until the weekend to find out its opponent in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 1. Gator Bowl president Rick Catlett ended the suspense with a trip to Maryland yesterday, announcing during the Terps' regular Tuesday news conference that West Virginia will receive an invitation, regardless of the outcome of this weekend's games. "Legally, because of contractual obligations, we may have to wait to make that official, but your opponent is going to be West Virginia, Coach," Catlett told Maryland's Ralph Friedgen.

Maryland had to put its Gator Bowl travel plans on hold yesterday, and the Terps have only Virginia Tech to blame. Gator Bowl officials were prepared to extend an invitation to Maryland after its 26-24 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday night, but Virginia Tech's unexpected 34-27 loss to Boston College threw a monkey wrench into the plan. The Gator Bowl, which traditionally pits an Atlantic Coast Conference team against one from the Big East Conference, wanted a Terps-Hokies matchup, seeking to bill it as sneak preview of next year's expanded ACC. But Virginia Tech's loss may turn out to be West Virginia's gain.

As Dr. Christina Catlett leaves the Johns Hopkins Hospital trauma center each evening, she tries to shake the day's searing images - the drug overdoses, gunshot wounds, heart attacks and other heartbreaks. She wants to be able to sleep. "As I drive out of Baltimore City to the county, I almost literally let all that emotion drain out of my body, and let my mind go blank," Catlett said recently. As a result, she commonly remembers little about the scenes that stirred her to tears or anger.
