COLLEGE PARK -- Wait until they see The Full Monty.No, the topic isn't the first-run motion picture. Rather, it's LaMont Jordan, the Maryland freshman whose potential is more impressive than the performance he staged in Philadelphia last week.Jordan broke Maryland's freshman record for rushing with 135 yards in the Terps' victory over Temple. He won't start against Duke at Byrd Stadium Saturday, but it still seems to be happening a little too fast for an 18-year-old who four months ago was on the track team at Suitland High in Prince George's County.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland is an older, better balanced and presumably stronger team than the one that finished the 1999 season. And heading into today's season finale against 20th-ranked Georgia Tech, the Terps have more momentum, last week's loss to North Carolina notwithstanding. But "it's weird, because we're in the same position we were in last year," senior defensive tackle Kris Jenkins said of his Terps (5-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who will play the Yellow Jackets (7-2, 5-2)

COLLEGE PARK - The impressiveness of Maryland's 37-7 win over Wake Forest, forged yesterday afternoon at Byrd Stadium, is open to interpretation. Does it call for praise, because the Terrapins (3-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) gained 500 yards on offense and had two backs hover around the 100-yard mark; because the defense forced four turnovers and pitched a shutout into the 54th minute? Or does it call for yawns? The only thing tougher to imagine than one of last year's bowl teams being as bad as Wake Forest (0-7, 0-6)

COLLEGE PARK - Fanatical, workaholic football coaches just can't figure out LaMont Jordan. They shake their heads in dismay and sometimes in disgust over how Maryland's Heisman Trophy candidate can break all the so-called tried and trusted workout and conditioning rules and still go out on Saturdays and run over, around and through would-be tacklers. Terps running backs coach Mike Locksley has even called Jordan "something of a freak" as a football player. "He can lay off lifting [weights]

Maryland may have another sort of injury problem. Leading playmaker Stefon Diggs, a wide receiver and kick returner, was wearing a walking boot on Tuesday. The injury is not believed to be serious, but the team won't release information about the player's status for Saturday's game at Clemson until Thursday's injury report. Diggs caught both of the Terps' touchdown passes in last week's loss to Georgia Tech. For the season, he's caught 43 passes for 721 yards and 6 touchdowns, and he also returned a kickoff for a touchdown.
