COLLEGE PARK -- The young man with the 5 o'clock shadow and the hint of a twang in his voice sits inside the Byrd Stadium press box at mid-afternoon, stating matter-of-factly how perspective gets skewed during a week like this, when he's getting ready to play the most important football game of his life. "I've had two papers due, and they're probably going to be terrible," Maryland quarterback Shaun Hill said, before his team's anticipated showdown with Florida State on Saturday afternoon in Tallahassee, Fla. "You can't think of anything other than this football game."

The San Francisco 49ers agreed to a trade that would send backup quarterback Shaun Hill (Maryland) to the Detroit Lions for a 2011 draft pick. The move cleared room for the 49ers to sign free-agent quarterback David Carr . Although Hill was 10-6 in games he started for the 49ers, he was replaced by former No. 1 overall draft pick Alex Smith in the second half of a Week 7 loss to the Houston Texans and never regained his starting job.

Signing day in February showed what the new football coaching staff at Maryland thought of the defensive line situation. Too small, not talented enough. In recruiting, they aggressively pursued defensive lineman and were ecstatic about getting Randy Starks, a guy they hoped could start right away. Four potential front-liners were part of this year's freshman class, nearly one-fourth of the newcomers. A funny thing happened on the way to an overhaul, however. The returning guys got bigger and, some would say, better between the spring practice session and fall camp, becoming one of the surprises of the team.

COLLEGE PARK - Shaun Hill was buried so deep in Middle America that the major college football recruiters couldn't find him three years ago. Maryland's highly regarded junior quarterback was tucked far away in the same coal-mining countryside that produced Mickey Mantle. Hill was a four-sport standout at little Parsons (Kan.) High School, about an hour's drive from Mantle's hometown of Commerce, Okla. Hill talked proudly yesterday about Mantle, saying: "My high school friend's mother was actually named after Mickey Mantle, and she grew up in the same town [Commerce]

COLLEGE PARK - Calvin McCall will start at quarterback and Shaun Hill will come off the bench and play a lot. That will likely be the secret plan Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden unveils Saturday at 6 p.m. when the Terrapins open their 2000 season against Temple at Byrd Stadium. "I've made my decision, but I'm not going to announce it until the first series," Vanderlinden said yesterday after a two-hour, 20-minute Labor Day practice. "There's no reason to announce it. I have the whole thing worked out but I'm not telling you. I would anticipate both of them playing.

COLLEGE PARK -- The famous and not-so-famous. That pretty much sums up Maryland football coach Ron Vanderlinden's fourth recruiting class as he continues to fight the Penn States of the world for top prep players who can help the school close the gap on national champion Florida State in the ACC. Celebrated Seneca Valley quarterback Chris Kelley is tops on the list of the famous, with Mount St. Joseph's tall and talented wide receiver, Rob Abiamiri, not...

COLLEGE PARK - A relaxed approach worked for quarterback Shaun Hill, who had a career day yesterday at Byrd Stadium, amassing 428 of his team's 697 yards in No. 12 Maryland's 59-17 demolition of Duke that sets up Saturday's showdown at Florida State. Hill decided to joke around a bit with teammates as he never had before, as part of a strategy to loosen things up. "It's not like I was going around pantsing people," said Hill, "but just saying a quick word. Usually, I'm just silent - that's the way I prepare for games."

The Titans (7-0) have won an NFL-best 10 straight regular-season games, matching the second-best streak in franchise history.

MIAMI - Shaun Hill doesn't have many attributes of the good quarterbacks who played before him at the University of Maryland, like the arm strength of Boomer Esiason, athletic ability of Neil O'Donnell or natural throwing motion of Frank Reich or Stan Gelbaugh. But an NFL team needs to take a gamble on Hill. He isn't good enough to be selected in the early rounds, but does have enough potential for a team to sign him as a free agent. They could stash him on the developmental squad for two to three years, and then see what happens.

COLLEGE PARK -- From tapes of last year's games, and from practices in spring session and fall camp, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen and offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe know they can count on satisfactory play at quarterback from Shaun Hill. So, for the first time in a while, the Terrapins have gone through most of a fall camp without wondering whom their starter will be. "The kids have confidence in him and I've decided that we'll have a first and second team," Friedgen said. "[Hill]

Furyk rides hot play into clubhouse lead golf Jim Furyk finished with five straight birdies to set the course record at Bellerive with an 8-under-par 62 in the second round, then followed with a 66 that put him at 12-under 198 and gave him the clubhouse lead at the BMW Championship in St. Louis. Camilo Villegas, who shot 66 in the morning for a one-shot lead through 36 holes, also was 12-under and had five holes left in the third round when play was suspended by darkness. He will have to return this morning to finish his round in a tournament twice interrupted by weather.
