What You Need to Know, in a Bunch of Words

Former teammates talk about Congressman Shuler, who talks about his electoral triumph, while others discuss his presidential prospects.

Portis says his off-the-field life is "marvelous" and he's "at peace," although the offensive philosophy "gets frustrating." Randle El says he's nearly broken six punt returns for TDs, David Patten keeps a smile on his face, offensive balance might be overrated but the Eagles nevertheless want to run more, as do the Skins. An Eagles LB says Mike Sellers is dirty and twice spat in his face, last week's game might have been the first in NFL history to end with back-to-back FG attempts, and Nick Novak called his Maryland teammate to celebrate while he was still in his pads.

Maryland's Keon Lattimore talks about facing his dream school, and Miami's new QB talks about football and Bryan Pata. The Cleveland State coach says George Mason has the talent for another Final Four run, Gary Williams gets a contract extension that wasn't about money (assist to Rick Maese), the GW women fight for attention, and Dave Leitao now has a shower in his office. Maryland is excited about its graduation rates, while the Baltimore Sun is not (and Va. Tech men's hoops scores zero percent for the third straight year). Also, the Terps women sign a top-5 recruiting class.

Lee Mazzilli might be involved in the Nats' managerial search, although attention is focused on Manny Acta, and Steve Stone and Don Sutton could be the team's next TV color analyst. Also, Bill Conlin says Soriano should wind up with the Mets.

The Caps get stomped in Raleigh, and Glen Hanlon says playing defense affected Ben Clymer's personality. The Wiz lead the NBA in turnover differential and share deodorant, and in another huge profile, Gilbert seems to claim he's the best guard in the league. Christian Gomez is the MLS MVP, and Dunbar's Arrelious Benn signs with Illinois as an analyst calls him "a faster version of Michael Irvin."
