As the 2011 NFL season is thrown further and further into doubt by the ongoing disagreement between owners and players, more and more fans might turn to the college football season as an unwavering source of entertainment. Local fans, especially, can look forward to several former Howard County standouts who are excelling at the next level. One example is Wake Forest rising redshirt sophomore Michael Campanaro, a former two-time player of the year while at River Hill (2008)

Michigan might hold up Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times This may sound strange, given that it struggled at home with an FCS opponent, but the biggest surprise has to be Michigan. Almost everyone was predicting disaster for Rich Rodriguez in his third year, given the offseason problems and the fact his team lost seven of its last eight last year. Consider this: Central Michigan received points in the preseason coaches poll but not Michigan. So the fact the Wolverines are 22nd in this week's coaches poll has to be acknowledged.

Midway through the 2005 college football season, something has become abundantly clear. This could be the best season in a generation. Can you recall a seven-week period that has produced more heart-pounding finishes? Can you remember a better tailback than USC's Reggie Bush in the past decade or two? Can you list three better teams trying to squeeze into the two-team BCS invitation envelope than Southern Cal, Texas and Virginia Tech? The first half of the season ended Saturday night with USC's for-the-ages 34-31 win at Notre Dame, a game that will be compared to the 1984 Orange Bowl classic between Nebraska and Miami, as well as the 2003 Fiesta Bowl double-overtime thriller between the Hurricanes and Ohio State, games generally considered the most exciting in modern history.

If it were just a recitation of the previous day's action, well, then it would be as dry as turkey leftovers from yesterday. But King takes the reader on a marvelous ride that includes his random thoughts on politics, the college football season and the search for good coffee on the road.

Jerry Fishman's phone rings often whenever Maryland and Navy get ready to play each other, as they will Monday at M&T Bank Stadium to kick off the college football season. Usually it's a reporter calling with some variation of the question: "Are you the guy who flipped Navy the bird in the '64 game? The guy responsible for ending the great rivalry between those two teams?" Fishman is a retired lawyer living in Boca Raton, Fla. But 46 years ago, he was a tough, volatile Terps linebacker and running back who hated the smug, superior attitude that seemed to emanate from Navy like gamma rays.

A seven-month investigation into a sports book gambling ring, whose operation spanned three counties and handled at least $100,000 each week, brought arrests yesterday afternoon of two men and confiscation of cash, betting records and vehicles, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said. Charged in warrants with multiple violations of state gambling laws were Bruce Davison, 36, of the first block of Lockhart Circle, Forest Hill, and Stephen Hendrickson, 52, of the 200 block of Fox Hall Drive, Bel Air. Other arrests are expected, authorities said.
