What You Need to Know

Local poll news: No 1. Maryland, whose campus is roiled by a prostitution ring story, will still sink or swim with its freshmen point guards. No. 5 Georgetown, which signed a deal with MASN, might not have Jeremiah Rivers tonight against JMU, whose players say the Hoyas are "very beatable." No. 9 Navy gets by Howard in double OT after a very shaky performance. No. 10 American holds off Longwood. No. 11 Liberty wins its fifth straight, thanks to the "nearly unguardable" Larry Blair. And after brief drama, the Terps women crush Siena.

Debbie Yow says Maryland didn't buy its way into a better bowl, Doug Doughty wishes Al Groh would listen to advice, Navy and BC have the best academic scores among the 64 bowl teams and a blogger wants Paul Johnson at N.C. State.

Unless something supernatural happens, Joe Gibbs will be back next year, but there won't be wholesale changes. Snyder spokesman Karl Swanson was not surprised. And Brandon Lloyd might not be around this week. Also, the offense is averaging 7.5 points after halftime? Maybe the run-pass distribution on Sunday wasn't actually that weird, and maybe Andre Carter wasn't a huge bust. Rick Snider says "the game not only passed Gibbs by, it ran over him." Gary Clark gets elected to the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame, and Bruce Smith is being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

The Wiz get their best win of the season, making their road troubles even harder to understand. ("Bottle that energy," Jamison says. "I'm like a bird," Gil says.)

The Nats--with Church, Vidro and Cordero drawing the most trade interest--could get in the middle of the Man-Ram proceedings. Guillen's departure brings another draft pick, and FYI, Jim Bowden says "we'll be a crawfish." Plus, the Caps try to increase attendance through focus groups.
