Hey, look up in the sky, it's a bird ... it's a plane, it's ... it's ... what the heck is it?That must be the reaction of many out-of-county prep football coaches and players this year, unaccustomed as they are to seeing Anne Arundel teams throwing the football.Yes, that's a pigskin sailing downfield each Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Don't be alarmed. Stop with the reports of UFO sightings.Many local gridiron coaches finally have pried the football loose from the bellies of their running backs, and they did so without the use of a crowbar.

The Hawaii football team's feel-good story is close to having a very unhappy ending - and I'm not talking about the 41-10 blowout loss to Georgia in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day. That was simply a matter of Cinderella Hawaii (12-1) slamming face-first into the reality of a vastly superior opponent. Even more disappointing will be if the Warriors lose coach June Jones.

This summer a wire service story about new University of Miami quarterback Gino Torretta noted that his hometown was Pinhole, Calif.The wire service, quickly realizing its error, sent a correction saying that Torretta actually lives in Pinola, Calif.Obviously, Torretta still has some name-recognition problems, being his hometown actually is Pinole, which Torretta describes as "a town about 15 minutes north of Berkeley."Although no college has the quarterback tradition of Miami, Torretta will enter tonight's nationally televised game against Houston (8 p.m., ESPN)
