No love lost in Texas David Teel Daily Press A democracy that has given us Sen. Al Franken and Gov. Terminator surely is capable of producing Sen. Craig James. But I'd sooner vote for Lee "Don't forget the 7-second delay" Corso. The beauty of James' folly is he's running in his native Texas. Sure, he starred there at SMU, but that outlaw era earned the program the NCAA's only death penalty. More than two decades later, James' ESPN-enabled crusade helped take down Texas Tech coach Mike Leach.

A week after setting a career high with 343 yards and two touchdowns on 22-for-33 passing in a 44-28 win against then-No. 19 New Hampshire, Towson's Peter Athens had better numbers Saturday night against No. 15 Villanova. He finished 24-for-41 for 355 yards and two scores. But the fifth-year senior also threw three interceptions, including two in the fourth quarter. The first two interceptions could hardly be blamed on Athens. The first one was batted up in the air by Wildcats junior nose tackle Pat Williams, and the second one ricocheted off junior wide receiver Derrick Joseph and into the waiting hands of sophomore safety Cameron McCurry.

Former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach said Monday that he felt optimistic following his second interview for the Maryland job and that he can't guess why the school did not hire him. Leach said Monday afternoon that he had not heard anything from Maryland since leaving College Park. His interview — it was his second with representatives of the school — ended last Thursday and Maryland hired Connecticut coach Randy Edsall, who was introduced to the media on Monday. "I don't really have much comment on the process or any of that.

The lasting impression of Mike Leach left after his 10 seasons at Texas Tech is not only of the Red Raiders scoring touchdowns as if they were in a video game. It is also the controversy that surrounded Leach as he was being fired last December, on the eve of his team's 10th straight bowl game. Now, Leach is a serious candidate to become Ralph Friedgen's successor at Maryland. If he does emerge from his exile in Key West, Fla. another image may come into focus: that of a straight-shooting, point-producing perfectionist who could create an excitement in College Park that not even a 9-4 season could rekindle.

One minute, Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen is celebrating another ACC Coach of the Year Award and an assurance from his boss that he will be back for the final year of his contract. The next, well, he's twisting in the wind and apparently headed for an unexpected early retirement. New Terps athletic director Kevin Anderson reluctantly revealed on Friday that Friedgen's status was still up in the air and that the future of the Maryland football program would become clearer by the end of next week, but I think one thing is crystal clear already.

Six months after narrowly missing out on the Maryland head coaching job, controversial former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is back in the news. This week, Leach, who was fired at Texas Tech following alleged player misconduct during the 2009 season, released a tell-all book titled  Swing Your Sword. Leach’s firing stemmed from his punishment of Adam James, the son of former NFL running back and ESPN broadcaster Craig James. Leach writes that while the Red Raiders coaching staff had originally gone out on a limb by offering James a scholarship, they quickly grew fed up with his lack of effort.
