The ribbing was chalked in on the portable blackboard that sits outside the office of C. Milton Wright football coach Steve Harward.On the left side was a circle about three inches in diameter depicting a smiling face with the inscription: "Jay's head before the season."On the other side was a circle of another smiling face 10 times larger with the words: "Jay's head now" written above it.But, if the truth be known, success hasn't spoiled the area's leading high school runner, Jason Tharpe.

The Wynn Las Vegas has Maryland as a 7.5 point underdog heading into Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State, according to VegasInsider.com. The Terps (4-1) beat Indiana, 37-15, in Bloomington on Saturday. But Ohio State (3-1) is a perennial national power that has outscored its past two opponents a combined 116-28 after losing to Virginia Tech Sept. 6. The Buckeyes lost star quarterback Braxton Miller to a season-ending injury during preseason practice. However, his replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, has thrown for 642 yards and 10 touchdowns with just one interception in Ohio State's last two games while completing 74 percent of his passes.

THIS IS ABOUT head games and how guys do them ever so differently from girls.For instance. Boy goes to party. Girl goes to party. Boy and girl meet. Boy and girl exchange small talk. Then boy and girl exchange medium talk. Finally boy and girl exchange phone numbers. Boy returns home. Girl returns home.Head games begin.Let us look, then, at what goes on in the guy's head first. Because guys don't just come home from a moment like this, collapse into bed with one last brewski, and, like some big dumb lummox, never give the woman a second thought.

COLLEGE PARK - A sign of Maryland's progress in Randy Edsall's third season with the Terps came Saturday night. Returning to the University of Connecticut for the first time since leaving the school where he began his head coaching career in 1999, Edsall watched the Terps fall behind early, play sloppily on offense into the second half and lose the game's defensive star with a season-ending injury. Yet, somehow, Maryland managed to return home with a 34-21 victory and its first 3-0 start in 12 years.

Head gamesThe Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs engaged in a strange sequence midway through the fourth quarter. Cleveland had a fourth-and-one at midfield and decided to go for it. Kansas City called a timeout, because it had its special teams unit on the field. The Browns sent their punting unit on the field, and the Chiefs had to switch personnel again. Then the Browns were flagged for a false start.You call this a crowd?The Seattle Seahawks played before the smallest non-strike crowd in their 19-year history.

MINNEAPOLIS - - In the past, with two seconds left in the game, most Ravens fans would have gone to the refrigerator, popped a brew and gone outside to celebrate victory. Instead, the Ravens are coming off one of their most demoralizing losses ever, falling to the Minnesota Vikings, 33-31, Sunday, as Steve Hauschka's 44-yard field goal with no time remaining went wide left. Deep down inside, it was one of our worst nightmares. Where was Matt Stover? Answer: Probably depositing his Indianapolis Colts paycheck into the bank.

Whatever happened to making the team run laps? In St. John, Kan., the high school boys basketball team was underachieving. The coach decided to get the players to focus by hypnotizing them. No, not by giving riveting speeches, but by literally having them undergo hypnosis with a therapist. This wasn't met with universal approval. "It won't be going on anymore at school," superintendent James Kenworthy told The Wichita Eagle. " ... At the high school level, it's not appropriate. We are trying to get kids to understand who they are and what they are. It may give kids a mixed message if you can't do it on your own."

I love berets and have worn them for years. This winter I want to experiment with other types of hats -- something more feminine. I can't wear anything too fussy and wonder if you can help me choose something for my conservative style. And how about a few suggestions on how to wear them?Patricia Underwood, a New York designer who makes simply shaped but extremely feminine hats, suggests you start experimenting with a "Padre-style" hat: "It has a brim which turns up and away from the face.

WASHINGTON -- Former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner's surprising decision to drop out of the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination marathon disappointed the party's moderates. His reasons revealed a weakness that dooms most presidential hopefuls: He showed a concern for something besides winning. Concern for kids and kin is a fine quality in most human beings, but professional political handlers will tell you that it only gets in the way of a presidential campaign. To paraphrase a drill sergeant's advice from my Army days: If the campaign wants you to have a family, it will issue you one. In every other way, Mr. Warner appeared to have all of the ingredients for a strong presidential run. He was a successful red-state governor with strong appeal among swing voters in NASCAR America, who Democrats want to lure back.

As the Washington Capitals sat in the dressing room at their Arlington, Va., practice facility ahead of a flight to Boston for a final showdown with the Boston Bruins in this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series, the mood was noticeably loose. Players lobbed well-intended jabs at one another, exchanged jokes with reporters and seemed relaxed to the point that an uninformed observer might not have believed the team will be fighting to keep its season alive tonight in Game 7 at TDGarden.

It's a familiar scene for members of the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team. At halftime and the conclusion of every game this season, after coach Dave Pietramala says what's weighing on his mind, he asks the same question. "Every time we come off the field for halftime or at the end of the game, the first thing Coach Petro asks before getting the stats is, 'Are we getting the ground balls? Are we winning the ground ball war?'" sophomore midfielder John Ranagan said. "… This year, it's been the one thing we've stressed.

Although Justin Bannan hasn't practiced every day, the defensive tackle hasn't been absent from a practice yet. While several of his teammates who have suffered injuries were absent from the practice fields at McDaniel College in Westminster, Bannan has attended every session despite enduring what he called some "minor bumps and bruises" that forced him to watch from the sideline for several days two weeks ago. "I think if you're able to come out here...
