COLLEGE PARK - Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen wouldn't come right out yesterday and say that sophomore quarterback Joel Statham would be his starter for the Terps' Sept. 4 opener against Northern Illinois. He did, however, make it clear that Statham is so much further along than his other three quarterbacks that unless something drastic happens, Statham is going to be his guy. "He's just way ahead of the others right now," Friedgen said. "I'm not willing to commit to [Statham starting]

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- After backup quarterback Joel Statham had zero completions and accounted for only 6 yards in the first quarter, injured starter Sam Hollenbach entered yesterday's game against Florida State. Hollenbach, who sprained a joint in his left shoulder Oct. 20 against Virginia Tech and was questionable for yesterday's game, was in on five plays before re-injuring himself on the sixth. This time, Hollenbach hurt his back when linebacker Ernie Sims tackled him for a loss of 2 yards.

When she graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a degree in business, Kimberly Statham wasn't excited about the future. Instead, she was reflecting on her past. Her mother, Beverly Harmon, had been a teacher and school administrator - in Kansas and Montgomery County - as long as Statham could remember. Both her parents had always stressed education as imperative. From early childhood to graduate work, learning was the passion in her house. "Business just really didn't grab me," Statham, 42, said from her office at Howard County school system headquarters, where she is the new associate superintendent for curriculum and instruction.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen confirmed yesterday what everyone already knew: Sophomore Joel Statham has earned the Terps' starting quarterback job. At least for now. Statham, who served as Scott McBrien's backup for the second half of the 2003 season, beat out sophomore Sam Hollenbach and freshman Ryan Mitch. And, according to Friedgen, he did it easily. "Right now, I don't think it's that close," Friedgen said. "Now, does that mean it won't be close in the fall?

COLLEGE PARK - Depending on whom you listened to last week, Joel Statham's first career start at quarterback for Maryland was either a mistake-prone mess or a textbook example of an athlete showing poise in the face of adversity. Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen stood firmly in the second camp, repeatedly praising Statham for his toughness, reminding people of his youth and complimenting him on several strong throws he made in the second half. Friedgen even pointed out that Statham managed to keep his composure better than Scott McBrien did in his first start two years ago, and McBrien ended up winning the most games of any quarterback in school history.

College Park -- It's not as if Maryland's backup quarterback can't beat a team the caliber of 10th-ranked Florida State. Joel Statham has already done that, in last year's 20-17 upset of the Seminoles. It's just not the ideal situation for coach Ralph Friedgen heading into Saturday's pivotal game against the Atlantic Division-leading Seminoles. In Tallahassee. On Florida State's homecoming. "I want to have Sam," Friedgen said yesterday of his injured starting quarterback, junior Sam Hollenbach.

For a lengthy period of time, Maryland's coaching staff has raved about Joel Statham's potential. But the raves, though frequent over the past eight months, always came with caveats. If he could just relax in front of crowds, they said, he'd gain more confidence. If he could ignore his natural instincts, they said, focus instead on his footwork and his ability to read coverage, he'd get the ball to the right guy nearly every time. If he could simply cut down on his mistakes, they said, if he could take a sack or throw the ball away instead of forcing it, he'd give his team a chance to win every time out. All those statements are still true about Statham, but four games into his sophomore year, some of the raves no longer need caveats.

COLLEGE PARK - It was not one of Joel Statham's best days yesterday inside Byrd Stadium. It was, perhaps, not even one of his good days. But Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen made it official anyway, naming Statham as his starting quarterback for the Terps' Sept. 4 opener against Northern Illinois. The move did not come as a surprise. Friedgen had said a week ago Statham, a 6-foot-1 sophomore, was leaps and bounds ahead of his other quarterbacks, and that something dramatic had to occur for someone to overtake him. But Friedgen also said he wanted to wait and see how Statham performed in Maryland's last scrimmage before setting it in stone.

As Bacon, the small-time scam artist in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Jason Statham was a fellow who worked comically hard to be a hard guy. As Terry Leather in the year's best adult action film, The Bank Job, Statham embodied to just the right point of imperfection the longing to make a killing that could also change your life. But as Frank Martin, aka The Transporter, Statham is one cool customer - he keeps all his energy coursing beneath the surface. A former Special Forces operative who lives in weird Spartan luxury on the French Mediterranean, Martin offers super-swift automotive transport of goods or people, no questions asked, for the right price.

Bettie S. Coleman, a retired music educator who taught piano and vocal music, died Saturday of heart failure at her Edgemere home. She was 77. Bettie Statham was born in Sparrows Point, the daughter of a steelworker. "There were seven children in the family, and six of us played piano," said a brother, Calvin H. Statham, who directed the Statham Gospel Singers. "Our parents also insisted that we go to college and get both a bachelor's and master's degree, and we all did." Mrs. Coleman was a 1947 graduate of Bragg High School in Sparrows Point and earned a bachelor's in music from what is now Morgan State University in 1951.

He's balding, he's not exactly blessed with heartthrob looks, and he has a thick Cockney accent. Yet over the past several years, 35-year-old Jason Statham has become an international action film star. The former world-class diver, street salesman and fashion model first broke into the public consciousness as one of the criminal lowlifes in director Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, reteamed with Ritchie for Snatch, then blew away the bang-bang crowd as the star of The Transporter films.

Jason Statham's acting career began on the sidewalks of Argyle Street in London. Sitting on a milk crate with a suitcase of bogus jewelry, the young street hustler said whatever it took to persuade tourists to buy gold chains that would turn green by the time they flew home. "That was street theater. It was called fly pitching. You work with a team - some people in the crowd, some guys who stand lookout for the police. Those were the most lucrative days of my youth," Statham says. Later, Statham would be introduced to a young filmmaker named Guy Ritchie who was looking to pepper the cast of his new crime film with nonactors whose faces evoked London's seedier pubs.

COLLEGE PARK - Quarterbacks, especially young ones, are going to make mistakes. In 26 years of coaching, Maryland offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe has heard kids curse after interceptions, seen them pout after missed reads and, along the way, even had a few who would cry after losses. Terps starter Joel Statham, though, is the first quarterback he has ever had who would make a mistake and then laugh when Taaffe tried to correct it. "It took me awhile to figure it out, but that was his defense mechanism for dealing with something when he was nervous," Taaffe said.

It's hardly a mass exodus, but Maryland's defensive coordinator might not be the only one leaving the football program. Two days after defensive coordinator Gary Blackney quietly retired, coach Ralph Friedgen met with three players who are thinking about leaving the program, including his top receiver and backup quarterback. Junior tight end Vernon Davis filed paperwork yesterday with the NFL Players Association to get a better idea of where he would be selected in the NFL draft. Davis led the Terps with 871 yards and six touchdowns on 51 catches.
