College Park -- Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen has done this before - it's his players who don't have the blueprint. When he took over the program in 2001, Friedgen was faced with the task of improving on back-to-back 5-6 seasons. On his first try, Maryland surged and Friedgen directed the Terps to a 10-win season and the Atlantic Coast Conference championship. Miami@Maryland Today, 3:30 p.m., chs. 2, 7, 1300 AM, 105.7 FM Line: Maryland by 3 1/2 Hurricanes to honor Pata The Miami Hurricanes will wear No. 95 stickers on their helmets during today's game at Maryland in memory of defensive lineman Bryan Pata, who was fatally shot Tuesday night in Miami, just hours after practice ended.

If I had to learn one new thing from each "Housewives" episode, tonight would be the phrase “Draconian Antics.” The “Draconian” stems from the ancient Athenian law maker, Draco, and basically means “small offenses that carry harsh punishment.” Bet you didn't think we were going to learn something from these crazy, catty ladies, did you? This was a phrase used by Adriana to describe her former bestie, Lea, and the way she has been acting toward her. But this is the meat of the recap, so let's start with a side, shall we?

NEW ORLEANS -- Of all the methods that the Alabama Crimson Tide could have used to surprise the Miami Hurricanes last night in the Sugar Bowl, the least likely was a sheer physical pounding. A manhandling. An embarrassment to the Hurricanes' famous, defining strut 'n' talk.No way, right? Not possible, right? Twenty-nine straight wins and four national titles in nine years should excuse you from some of the miserable things in life, right?You had to see it.You had to see Miami's generally brutish offensive linemen getting picked up and tossed aside by Alabama defensive ends John Copeland and Eric Curry, whose constant pressure so spooked Miami quarterback Gino Torretta that he called three timeouts in the first 20 minutes -- and went downhill from there.

The alumni who returned for Saturday's homecoming game witnessed a scene that could hardly have been imagined a year ago. There was Maryland throwing four touchdown passes, blocking two punts and returning two interceptions for scores to sail past Wake Forest, 62-14 -- its largest victory margin in an Atlantic Coast Conference game in eight years. There was Maryland recording its sixth win of the season to become eligible for a bowl game. There was Maryland (6-2, 3-1 ACC) -- one of three Atlantic Division teams with only one conference loss -- positioning itself for what now emerges as a big game next Saturday against the Miami Hurricanes (5-3, 3-2 ACC)

MIAMI -- Let's go to the videotapes. No, not the one Florida State linebacker Marvin Jones made unknowingly last year, putting the Miami Hurricanes in an unflattering light -- the one the Hurricanes watched before their one-point victory over the top-ranked Seminoles in Tallahassee.Let's go to the videotapes of this year's teams. Are those the Seminoles in a one-back offense, or the Hurricanes? Are those the Hurricanes flying around on defense, or the 'Noles? Is that Florida State missing easy field goals, or is it Miami?

The players in the Texas locker room were not that upset. That was what struck me. The Miami Hurricanes had not just beaten them by 43 points, but also abused them verbally and physically, piling taunts on top of late hits. A few Texas players said they were offended, but their admissions were uninspired, rote. To me, it seemed most of them actually admired the Hurricanes for the way they had taken over the game.It was enough to make you think twice. CBS' announcers for Tuesday's Cotton Bowl pulled on their solemn faces and proclaimed that Miami, with 200 yards in penalties, had "disgraced" itself.

MIAMI -- Penn State junior linebacker LaVar Arrington gets his chance today to punish offensive players on the same Orange Bowl turf where Ray Lewis, now a Pro Bowler with the Ravens, became his idol by doing the same thing.Arrington will start showing his moves at 3: 30 p.m., when the No. 3 Nittany Lions (3-0) face the No. 8 Miami Hurricanes (2-0).When Lewis was a senior at Miami, Arrington, then a Pittsburgh-area high school player, met the man whose reckless style he studied and imitated -- and still does.

Are they ready to break out when they play Penn State today at noon at Beaver Stadium, or are they more likely to break down?

TEMPE, Ariz. -- If the Nebraska Cornhuskers looked familiar in blowing out Florida to win their second straight national championship last night in the Fiesta Bowl, there was a reason.After spending years as the best team in the country to lose the big game every year, the Cornhuskers have reinvented themselves as the Miami Hurricanes of the '90s.Remember those Miami teams that dominated college football for a decade? The Cornhuskers have become a mirror image.They have unmatched speed. They physically intimidate their opponents, particularly on defense.

MIAMI - The Miami Hurricanes and Florida Gators are on track to meet Jan. 3 in a national championship showdown in the Rose Bowl. Thanks to a pair of Big 12 upsets over the weekend, Miami and Florida need only win out to lock up spots in Pasadena, Calif. The Hurricanes (10-0) and Gators (9-1) are poised to pull down the top two rankings, respectively, in the new BCS poll scheduled to come out tomorrow. If the Hurricanes win at Virginia Tech in their regular-season finale Saturday, and the Gators win at home against Tennessee on Saturday and in the Southeastern Conference championship in Atlanta the following weekend, the two teams will garner more than enough BCS points to play for the national title.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Stop Johnny Hemsley. That order was high on Tulsa's checklist heading into last night's NCAA tournament South Regional semifinal against Miami. Hemsley, the senior guard out of Baltimore's Southern High, had shot the Hurricanes to one of their best seasons ever, and Tulsa coach Bill Self was determined to make someone else beat him. Seventh-seeded Tulsa limited Hemsley's touches and moved into its first regional final with an 80-71 victory over Miami at the Erwin Center.
