Who's hot Virginia Tech: With four of their first five games at home - a stadium that will be oozing with pride and community after the tragic shootings in April - the Hokies could get off to a fast start. They have an experienced quarterback, a revamped offensive line, one of the top defenses in the country and more to play for than just football. Boston College: First-year coach Jeff Jagodzinski inherited a talented, 10-win team that includes senior running backs L.V. Whitworth and Andre Callender, but there will be pressure to win immediately.

One year after a 2-10 season almost cost him his job, Maryland's Ralph Friedgen was named Atlantic Coast Conference football Coach of the Year -- an honor that he says provided him "vindication" for standing by his staff and players in trying times. Friedgen, in his 10th season, got 29 votes, outpolling his close friend Frank Beamer (19 votes) of Virginia Tech. Tom O'Brien of North Carolina State and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher got six votes each from the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When Naval Academy athletic director Jack Lengyel innocently forgot to introduce football coach George Chaump yesterday at a press luncheon for the Dec. 4 Army-Navy game at Giants Stadium, Chaump said jokingly, "I hope this isn't an omen."Chaump was only half-kidding. His future in Annapolis could hinge on beating Army, the last game on his four-year contract. His record going into the game is 11-32."I put pressure on myself to win every game," Chaump said, "but you especially want to win in a year your contract expires.

Bring on the bagels.That was the rallying cry last weekend when crowds lined the renovated Sam's Bagels in Roland Park.Come Saturday morning, we dropped by for our usual multigrain with walnut-raisin cream cheese. The place was so jampacked that we couldn't even nab a seat at the snazzy new cappuccino and espresso bar. All those chipper families, all those groggy students, all that cream cheese.We settled instead for a stool by the window facing an empty Coca-Cola refrigerator. It wasn't scenic, so we directed our gaze toward the new and larger bagel shop.

When Paul Johnson accepted the job as Navy's head coach, he stressed that there were three things the Academy needed to focus on if it was going to turn around the football program: recruiting, commitment and scheduling. Johnson and his staff have hit the recruiting trail hard this year, and Johnson has repeatedly said he is pleased with the renewed commitment the administration has made to the football program. But with losses to North Carolina State and Boston College this season, and No. 6 Notre Dame on the horizon after this week's game against Tulane, Johnson said the next step Navy needs to take is to be realistic when setting its schedule.

It's just two words, but what a difference they can make in meal.Without them, it could be a long, cold, stare into the refrigerator, a hasty thaw, a heated jumble of pots and pans, accompanied by stress and the sense of fleeting time.With them, it can be a snap. One pot, one dish, one meal, cool and simple.Pasta salad. Those are the magic words for summer suppers. Easy to put together, infinitely variable, nutritious and filling. And they don't, for the most part, heat up the kitchen.What's more, they're ideal for entertaining -- elegant, inexpensive, expandable, perfect for those casual "bring-a-dish" parties that characterize the outdoor dining season.

The best college back in the state this football season may be a man who has never played a down for his school and is unknown at this moment even to most of his classmates at Towson State. His name: Tony Vinson.Vinson is a 6-2, 215-pound running back with great speed and balance and excellent hands. He's a transfer from Purdue, where he started 16 games in his freshman and sophomore seasons. He's a junior at Towson now.I saw Vinson scrimmage against Salisbury State last week. He's one of those rare backs you see carry the ball once, and you know he's something special.

Navy (in Baltimore): Terps and Midshipmen have played only 20 times (Navy leads, 14-6), but there have been some memorable and intense games between teams that could become true rivals. Morgan State: Terps will face Bears on just four days' rest. It's the first time the universities -- located just 36 miles apart -- have played in football. Maryland fans sure remember losing to Bears in men's basketball in 2009. At West Virginia: Ralph Friedgen says he loves border rivalries, and this marks the resumption of one. Mountaineers will rely on young quarterback Geno Smith and a strong running game.

In the aftermath of the cancellation of Saturday's game at Northwestern, the Naval Academy is discussing the possibility of adding an 11th game on one of its two remaining open dates. Acting athletic director Capt. Kevin Sinnett said there is "a significant interest" from other schools to play and that the department is "hoping for a decision in the next few days." The superintendent, Vice Adm. John Ryan, will make the decision. One consideration is that the open dates - Sept. 29 and Nov. 3 -coincide with the six- and 12-week examinations at the academy.
