WASHINGTON - Shouts of "We are Marshall!" rang out in the lobby of the team's downtown Washington hotel, where exuberant, green-clad fans of the Thundering Herd had gathered on the eve of Friday's Military Bowl matchup against Maryland in Annapolis. The Thundering Herd, from Conference USA, may not be as well known as Maryland, which is playing its last game before joining the Big Ten next season. But the Terps (7-5) know that Marshall (9-4) - which averages 43 points and 502.3 yards per game and is vying for its first 10-win season since 2002 - will pose a difficult test at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Lanny Ross struggled to push his 78-year-old mother through the surf toward shore. On a cool, cloudy October afternoon, his two-seater plane had smacked into the Chesapeake Bay, stranding them both amid five-foot waves. His mother's right eye was swollen shut, her teeth had pierced her bottom lip, and her nose was broken. Miles from land, the sun was setting and they were shivering, when his mother spoke. Hold my hand, she told him. What's wrong? he asked her. Hold my hand, she said again.

It sounds as grim and unrelenting as "Into the Wild," another book/movie that pitted man against the Alaskan wilderness. Here are some excerpts from reviews: -- Los Angeles Times: Neeson holds it together from first to last.
