EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When asked last week how his offensive line would survive against the huge Notre Dame defense, Navy coach George Chaump promised a different approach. That plan turned out to be the wishbone formation that gave Notre Dame fits.The new-look attack produced 31 points, the most Navy has scored against anyone since a 41-7 win over Yale in fifth game of the 1988 season. It was also the most points scored on Notre Dame this season other than the 36 points Stanford scored in its upset win in South Bend, Ind."

As far as summer jobs go, one could certainly do worse than playing "Diablo 3. " One Reddit poster, "WishboneTheDog," sparked interest and debate about the hit game's "Real Money Auction House (RMAH)" feature with a post detailing how he or she has made more than $10,000 selling items. Having in-game item economies that translate into real world bucks is an old concept for online games, but Blizzard's inclusion of the RMAH has institutionalized the process. What was once the unregulated equivalent of a semi-legal flea market has been turned into Blizzard's own eBay, and "Wishbone" seems to be the first person who has invested serious time into making it pay off. In the past two days, "Wishbone" has answered dozens of questions from other players and intrigued "Redditors" about the process for accumulating such a large sum of cash, the viability of doing this as a profession and the macroeconomic implications of selling in a digital economy.

In a weekend in which Severna Park football coach Andy Borland became the fourth in county history to reach the 100 mark in career wins, arch-rival Annapolis came back from the dead and outlasted Meade, 15-8.After two weeks of the young football season, it's safe to say that the ultimate winner of Class 4A Region IV could go 7-3. Yes, thestate's most competitive league is very competitive indeed.And the wishbone offense is not going to become the offense of the '90s either.It's also safe to say that despite what Meade coachHayse Henderson says, that is not a wishbone offense he runs.

Army will run out onto the PSINet Stadium field Saturday and right into that relentless shower of cheers from fellow cadets, all of them knowing a victory over Navy in the season finale can ease the pain of a 1-9 record. They are more than a few good men when it comes to preparing to play defense for the country. But just like at Annapolis, winning football games hasn't been a specialty at West Point this season, Army's third since bumping some Division I-AA schools from the schedule and joining up with a tougher crowd in Conference USA. "Just by who we play, we're always going to be at a disadvantage," said Michael Wallace, the Black Knights' standout senior running back.

ANNAPOLIS -- When last seen in these parts, the wishbone was a plodding offense used by Navy that was better at putting fans to sleep than producing wins.Navy fans will get another look at that offense tomorrow, when Air Force displays its wishbone against the Midshipmen at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (1:30 p.m.). And if the Falcons are able to run the offense as well as they have in their first six games, it should give the locals a better appreciation of what the wishbone can accomplish.

ANNAPOLIS -- Navy football coach George Chaump had a couple of names for it. One was "Operation Deep Freeze." Another was "Arctic Zone Offense."They were the labels of the wishbone offense tactics the Middies used to roll up 31 points in their 52-31 loss to Notre Dame last week. Since they were so successful -- Navy hadn't scored that many points against the Irish since its last win over them in 1963 -- remaining opponents could very well see more of the same.Navy (3-5) will travel to Toledo (8-1)

Throw away past season records. Forget who scored what and in what quarter of a game. It's Army-Navy again tomorrow for the 91st time with a 1:30 p.m. kickoff in Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium.With theseries tied at 42 wins, bragging rights will go to the winner at least for another year. Football polls will be put aside for a few hoursas people watch all around the world, and a wager or two will be made on many a military or naval post. This game is, as always, a true classic that neither team can afford to lose -- especially this year.

It won't be easy for the Navy football team again tomorrow when it journeys to Philadelphia for a noon kickoff with Temple University.Temple is sporting a 1-5 record, but it has played the likes of Alabama, Pittsburgh, Clemson, Penn State and West Virginia, scoring on all of them and losing to the Mountaineers by only 10-9.Not much can be added to what has been recorded about Navy's whomping in the second-half by the Air Force Academy, 46-6, last week after playing the Falcons to a 7-6 first half.

The Army-Navy football game 10 days from now at PSINet Stadium is considered basically a Naval Academy show, but the Cadets aren't worried about being viewed as a visiting team. "We'll be here 4,000 strong," said senior co-captain Derrick Goodwin, one of Army's four starting linebackers. "We'll have plenty of fans here. This game has been played at Giants Stadium when we were seen as the home team, and Navy won. That's all you need to know." "Army-Navy is Army-Navy wherever it is," added wide receiver Brian Bowdish, the other co-captain.

Ruth Pettus' paintings of faceless men in indeterminate settings have been shown often in recent years. But they don't lose their force, as Pettus proves with four recent paintings on exhibit in School 33's current two-person show.Pettus' men have always appeared ominous, with their featureless faces and dark clothes that suggest melodrama villains. They bristle with negative implications: They may stand for male dominance and sexism, for the male animal's potential for violence, for the difficulty of penetrating others' facades and establishing true communication, for faceless bureaucracies that run the world and don't give a damn about people.

RARELY HAS a hypothetical million dollars, a cartoon mascot and a TV-star dog caused so much anxiety. The fact that they recently did speaks volumes about public television and the trust it has cultivated over the years among millions of viewers.The issue was raised by a newspaper article that suggested Frito-Lay Co., the snack food producer with a plant in Maryland, was offering $1 million to the Public Broadcasting Service if it would allow a promotional spot with "Chester Cheetah," the hip mascot for its "Chee-tos" cheese curls.

The most one-sided, lifeless rivalry in college football got a whiff of ammonia yesterday.Notre Dame's Lou Holtz, a coach who never publicly disparages an opponent, stopped just short of calling Navy's spread attack a high school offense.His comments, made in a teleconference call with reporters at the Naval Academy, might have helped revive the somnolent series, which resumes with its 69th game Saturday in South Bend, Ind.During the teleconference, Holtz was asked to clarify a statement he made earlier in the week, suggesting the Navy offense incorporates elements of the wishbone offense and the run-and-shoot passing game.

ANNAPOLIS -- Brian Ellis spent his first three years on the Navy football team in the background.As a freshman and sophomore, he watched Alton Grizzard and Gary McIntosh battle for the quarterback job. Last season, he competed for the starting spot, but lost out to speedy Jason Van Matre. This year, the nod went to strong-armed Jim Kubiak.It seemed, until last weekend, that Ellis was destined to become a four-year clipboard carrier."It's been tough," Ellis said yesterday. "Nobody likes to finish second.

George Chaump has seen a lot of weird stuff over the past four seasons as Navy coach, including a series of last-second losses that had a Stephen King look about them.It was all taken with the proverbial stiff upper lip until yesterday, when Fisher DeBerry, Air Force coach on the horn from Colorado Springs, said, "I don't know why it caused a controversy. Our ball carrier was clearly down when the fumble occurred."Chaump's jaw dropped a foot. His eyes widened in disbelief. He sputtered. The room came alive.
