What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

In retrospect, it all makes sense. Last year's playoff run actually hurt the Redskins by creating a false sense of security. When Brandon Lloyd and ARE screamed at each other on the sidelines Sunday, they were actually "keeping each other cool." The punter's bizarre penalty was actually due to "a bunch of things that happened the past four weeks." Al Saunders is actually not a genius, but a failure. Mark Brunell's arm is actually strong enough to throw it "wherever you want to throw it." Anyhow, today they'll work on the passing game on both sides of the ball, probably without Portis and Moss; Gibbs says he's the first person to blame, and players look forward to splitting.

Joe Girardi takes himself out of the running for the Nats job, Shawne Merriman's lawyer explains the player's appeal, alleged breakout candidate Andray Blatche has struggled and appears to be frustrated, while Brendan Haywood states his case for the starting job (7 points, 9 rebounds). Caps youngster Jakub Klepis gets promoted to the second line, and first-round pick Nicklas Backstrom is dominating in Sweden.

Maryland QB Sam Hollenbach is finally part of the running game, while Saturday's opponent (FSU) deals with internal chaos and requests for Bowden's retirement. Also, Frank Beamer says he doesn't have a QB controversy, UNC media want Navy's Paul Johnson to be considered for the Tar Heels' job, and, in lieu of midnight madness, GW hoops will hold an open practice. No dancing? Plus, Mike Tyson might fight next in Norfolk.

Glad to see the link mention that this season is the 100 Year Anniversary of George Washington Basketball. GW was the first college hoops team organized (1906)in the Nation's Capital. Go Colonials!
