Altha threyear-old critical





after being kicked by horse


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
An Altha toddler remains in
the pediatric, intensive care
unit at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital after being kicked by
a horse last Tuesday.
Christian Hupp, the three-
year-old son of David and
Amanda (Bodiford) Hupp of
Altha, was reportedly playing
outside his grandparents'
'Altha home around mid-after-


noon when he slipped into a
horse pen on the property. A
short time later, a horse kicked
him in the chest and abdomen
area.
Christian's six-year-old
brother, who was playing near-'
by, rescued him. from the pen
and pulled him to the house.
His aunt and grandmother
immediately drove, him to
Jackson Hospital in Marianna
and he was later airlifted to
TMH in critical condition.


Sources say Christian had
surgery to repair a tear in his
small intestine. He was initial-
ly placed on a ventilator, but it
was removed on Sunday after-
noon. However, he has devel-
oped pneumonia and is facing
a long and difficult recovery.
. To make matters worse, the
Hupp family has no medical
insurance. To assist them,
friends and family members
are planning a benefit yard
sale on Saturday, Sept. 27,


from 8 a.m. to noon at 16144
South Pear Street in
Blountstown. In addition, they
have established a benefit
account in Christian's name at
Superior Bank for anyone
wishing to contribute.
Christian's parents want to
express their sincere apprecia-
tion to everyone in the com-
munity for their thoughts, gifts,
and prayers. They ask that
everyone continue, to pray for
Christian's recovery.

was arrested Thursday on bur-
glary charges in two unrelated
cases.,
Jody Parker Crisp, 24, was

grand theft of a firearm, and
dealing in stolen property. Her
live-in boyfriend, Joshua,
.Savell, 21, was charged with
burglary of a structure, grand

property.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office, an
investigation into the theft of a
Remington .305 semi-automat-
ic firearm that was missing from
the home of a relative of Crisp's
led to her arrest. She is accused
of breaking into the residence
and pawning the' weapon.
Authorities located it at a local
pawn shop and the victim
recovered it.
Savell .was arrested the
same day after another relative
of Crisp's discovered over
$6000 worth of metal he had in
a shed near their home was
missing. The investigation led
to a metal dealer" in
Blountstown where an employ-
ee confirmed ,the company had

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 24, 2008, Page 4


Dear Editor,
As a boy of around 10 or 11,
I met Patricia Dane in approxi-
mately 1970. She was living in
my great grandmother, Viola
Burnes-Kelley-Field's house
which is still standing at the
south corner of Pear and Kelley
Streets.
I remember several details
of the lengthy conversation I
had with her as I was so
impressed to actually meet a
person who had appeared in the
movies. I particularly remem-
ber being amazed when she told
me she had been good friends
with the mysterious, Howard
Hughes who had been in hiding
for years. Also, I recall how
gruesome I thought it was when
she related how she had been
scalded to death in a shower in
one of her films. However, it
was not until last year when I
stumbled on to Grand Central
Murder that I was finally able
to watch this scene mentioned
to me so many years earlier.
Even though she spelled her
last name Byrnes, she was the
stepdaughter of ,my great uncle
Roman Burnes of Blountstown.
She was also related to the
Burnes or Burns family through
blood as well as marriage. This
is a fact worth noting for many
of your readers since the family
first moved to this area prior to
the Civil War where they mar-
ried into families whose many
descendents continue to reside
here. It is probable that many
Calhoun County residents have
no idea they are distant cousins
to Patricia Dane.
Steve Jordan

Dear Editor,
Never give up. Isn't that
what we were taught as we
were growing up? Isn't that
what we are teaching our chil-
dren? Well, let's not give up on
our football team. these foot-
ball players are giving every-
thing they have and then some


while they are on the football
field and we need to be in the
stands supporting them.
Winning is great, but we
can't always win.
My family has been support-
ing the Tigers since the 70's.
We weren't related to anyone
playing football, but we had
watched quite a few of the play-
ers grow into young men. We
attended all the games. 'Home
games, away games, playoff
games. Win or lose. You still
show support, Show your spirit.
I know everyone doesn't
make as much noise as my
daughter (Tori) and I do. But, I
love the game, she loves the
game. We want the players to
know we are in the stands for
them. You have to keep them
in the game by letting them
hear you. 'They want that from
us. They tell me that all the
time. It means so much to
them.
I have a grandson on the
team now. He played Jr.
Varsity in the 6th grade and
when that season ended he
moved to Varsity. He knows we
will be there for him arid the
team no matter what happens..
The crowd was smaller for
the first home game and maybe
there was good reasons for the
even smaller crowd in Port St.
Joe Friday.night. 'But, please
"never Give Up" on this great
group of young. men playing
football for the "Blountstown
Tigers".
Please travel to Tallahassee
this Friday night when they
play Florida High and show
your support. Show your spirit.
Let them hear you. This will be
a very hard game four guys and
they need us there for them.
Win or lose we will be there.
GO BIG RED!
Tiger. Fan
Janet Dykes

Letter to the Editor,
As a parent of children in the


General Fund


Calhoun County youth football
and baseball leagues, I would
like to take this opportunity to
thank all of the coaches, their
wives, parents, community
members, league members and
many more who have poured
their hearts and souls into such
a wonderful program for our
youth.
Not only are the coaches
extraordinary mentors for our
kids, but also the. work they do
behind the scenes is more than
tri-fold of what we see on the
field. They do this not only for
our children, but also for the
love of their community and the
game: These coaches put in so
many excruciating hours taking
time away from their own fami-
lies in order to serve us. .They
don't get paid for their time
and, unfortunately, often hear
more criticism than praise for
their unremitting hard work
and dedication.

Nowhere else have I encoun-
tered such a community wide
effort for the purpose of serving
our children and their families
through sports. In times of pol-
itics and so much animosity, it is
nice to see others thanklessly
giving so much of themselves to
make this county a better place
to live.. It is such an honor to
raise my children in such a car-
ing community.
So THANK YOU again for
all the countless hours you
have put in on out of town trips
for equipment, food for conces-
sions; late night and early
morning clean ups, field work,
fundraisers, washing uniforms,
all night cook outs, and all the
other work you do to make
Calhoun County sports pro-
grams top notch. You are an
inspiration to us all in doing
what Jesus wants us to do,
serve others before ourselves!


Sincerely,
Kelly Skipper

Port St. Joe drops Tigers to 0-3


Critical mistakes continue to
haunt the Blountstown Tigers
who dropped to 0-3 on the sea-
son after being shutout in Port
St. Joe Friday night by the
Sharks, 25-0. Coach Greg
Jordan is searching for solu-
tions.
"We're young and we keep
making mistakes. We've got to
start showing some improve-
ment and quit making the same
mistakes over and over," coach
Jordan said Monday. "We
muffed a punt inside our ten
yard line in the first quarter
that basically gave them a
touchdown. In the second
quarter, our defense had
stopped them and we roughed
the punter giving them a first
down and they eventually
scored. Our defense plays hard
but we have young kids who
line up in the wrong place or
miss an assignment and we give.
up a big play," Jordan noted.
Tiger quarterback Heath
Bailey was sacked for an eight
yard loss on the opening play of
the game to set the tone of
things to come. Blountstown
managed 90 yards rushing on
38 attempts and passed for 15
yards on 2 of 8 completions.
Malcolm Ivory found the yards
hard to come by against the
aggressive Shark defense, but
still gained 30 yards on 10 car-
ries. Alexander Garrett had 23
yards on 3 attempts and Darrin
Huff had 13 yards on 5 carries.
The Sharks racked up 290
yards rushing and passed for 35
more. Port St. Joe scored a
touchdown in each quarter but
only made one extra point for
the 25 point total.
Defensively, Jason Money
and Jeremy Watson were each
in on 14 tackles. Heath Bailey
and Lance Clemons were each
in on 9 tackles followed by
Ivory and Chase Johnson with
7 each.
"We're going back to a base
set, and spread people out. We
plan to continue, alternating
quarterbacks and getting more
young people into the game,"
Jordan added.
The Tigers will need to play
-well this Friday night when
they travel to Tallahassee to
face district opponent Florida
High who destroyed Monticello
last Friday night, 70-0. Florida
High has already beaten, Port
St.. Joe this year. These kids
are still playing their hearts out
and deserve your support in the
stands Friday night.

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


The Tigers tasted defeat to
the Sharks from Port St. Joe
25-0 in week three. It was the
first time in seven years that St.
Joe has beaten Blountstown.
I don't know what the overall
record for this rivalry is that
dates back*to WW II, but the
winning or losing streaks don't
last forever. I'm sure the wins
and losses are pretty even over
the 60 plus years of playing. It's
a great rivalry of two equal pub-
lic schools that will continue
hopefully for a long time.
What allowed the .streak to
come to an end this year? Key
to winning from our standpoint
was ball security we had two
first half turnovers and a ruffing
the punter call that gave them
the ball back that resulted in 13
first half points. We were 2 of 8
passing and had less than 100
yards rushing on the night. We
didn't run or pass efficiently on
the night. That makes it hard to
score unless you're counting on
your .defense to stop them and
score for the offense.
The OFFENSE has to
improve and they will. What's
happening is not a big anything,
it's a lot of little things that add
up. A penalty here, a missed
block there, a bad read by the
QB, they just add up to kill
drives. Us and St. Joe the other
night ran pretty much the same
offensive plays. They were suc-
cessful running the ball and that
was the difference in the game.


Defensively, we lined up
wrong for a good part of the
game. It's a wonder after
watching the film the score was-
n't worse than it was.
Misalignments put you at a dis-
advantage before the, snap
occurs and we were in that posi-
tion several times including the
TD run in the third quarter.
There's no excuses for get-
ting beat. We played poorly and
the score indicated so. We will
continue to work hard to
improve each week. This team
will not surrender, they will
fight, claw and scratch to get
this thing fixed. They are Tigers
and that's what Tigers do.
Just a little sidebar before I
go. West Gadsden lost to
Crestview 5-3 and had a 3-2
lead with 2 minutes to go in the
game and threw an intercep-
tion. Crestview kicked a forty
yard fieldgoal to win the game.
Niceville (class 5A) beat
Crestview 28 to 26 the week
before. The point is our compe-
tition is 50% of what's going on
.right now. The other 50% is us
making mistakes and beating
ourselves.
This week the Tigers travel
to Tallahassee to take on FL.
High who is the favorite in our
district and has a bevy of talent.
We will have to play our best
game of the year this week. The
kickoff is 7:00 CST at FL.
High. See ya there!!! Go
Tigers!!!

Pleasantness
is a gift with
some, people
and with others
a lack of
pleasantness is
the handicap
which, if they
only knew it, is
keeping them
from some of


life's most rewarding
experiences.
Big pleasures and great
happiness are but the outcome of
many little pleasures and deeds
of kindness bound together, as a
loaf of bread is many crumbs in
the whole. Happiness is to be
found among life's common
things. It is not the rare gifts, the
possession of the few; it is not
great wealth, great learning,
great genius, or great power; it is
not these things that make the
possessors happy. It is good
'health; it is friendship; it is love of,
home; it is the voices of children;
it is sunshine; it is a passing
smile; it is a kindly word; a little
gift bestowed anonymously; a
little thoughtfulness here and
there as the days slip by .
These are the crumbs of
happiness.
Pleasantness is the cheapest
commodity on earth; and if
people only knew it, such an
'attitude contains grains and
nuggets of gold.

Mark has been gone for two
years on Sept. 21. I want to
thank everyone for their out-
pouring of love and support
throughout this time since his
passing.
Your acts of love and sympa-
thy, food, flowers, prayers, and
other acts of care for our family
have been such a blessing.
Special thanks to the people of
the First United Methodist
Church in Blountstown for all
they have done for us.
After the death of a child,
the sun never shines as bright.
But, with God's help and your
prayers, we have been 'given
the. strength to face each day.
We continue to covet your
prayers.

For All Parents
"I'll lend you for a little time
a child of mine," He said.
For you to love while he
lives, and mourn when he is
dead.
It may be six or seven years,
or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call him
back, take care of him for me?
He willbring his charms to
gladden you, and shall his stay
be brief,
You'll have his lovely mem-
ories as solace for your grief
I cannot promise he will
stay, since all from earth
return.
But there are lessons taught
down there I want this child to
learn.
Ive looked the wide world
over in my search for teachers
true
And from the throngs that
crowd life's lanes, I have select-
ed you.
Now will you give him all


your love, nor think the labor
vain,
Nor hate me when I come to
call, to take him back again.
I fancied that I heard them
say, Dear Lord, thy will be
done.
For all the joy Thy child
shall bring, the risk of grief
we'll run.
We'll shelter him with ten-
derness; we'll love him while
we may.
And for the happiness we've
, known will ever grateful stay.
But shall the angels call for
him much sooner than we
planned,
We'll brace the bitter grief
that comes and try to under-
stand.

Calhoun County Humane Society



PETS OF THE WEEK,


Do you have room in your life and home for a new pet? There .: '
are many animals who have been abandoned, abused, and neg-
lected and are in need of loving families. The Calhoun County
Humane Society is providing shelter for several animals that would
make wonderful pets if given the chance. Please consider adopting
one today. Call 674-4075 or check out their website at www.cal-
houncounty humanesociety.net to see the animals in need of homes
and learn more about how you can help.
The goals of the Calhounr County Humane Society include: p
V Providing reduced cost spay/neutering and transport for ani -
mals
V Establishing a network of foster families to provide shelter to
adoptable homeless animals outside of the Blountstown city limits
(since the Blountstown shelter is open only to animals within the
city limits and the county does not have one)
V/ Promote pet identification for noticiation of owners in the event
of injury or when a pet is lost
V/ Lobby for animal control and protection

Hosford families honored

for Century Family Farms


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced that
three North Florida properties
have qualified for recognition as
Century Pioneer Family Farms,
including two from Liberty
County. Recognition in this
program means the families
have maintained continuous
ownership of the property for at
least 100 years.
The families who qualified
are Duncan and Kenneth
Hosford in Liberty County and
James Tyrus Peel in
Washington County.
"These families have been
able to retain ownership of their
land through the Great


Depression, diseases, droughts,
freezes and the urbanization, of
Florida," Bronson said. "That is
a great tribute to the many gen-
erations of these families."
The Peel property in
Washington County is currently
in timber and cattle production',
and has been used for row crop
production in the past, includ-.
ing watermelons. The Hosford.
properties include 400 acres
owned by Duncan Hosford, and
300 acres owned by Kenneth
Hosford. The Hosford proper-
ties are used for perennial
peanut, corn and pine tree pro--
duction as well as livestock such
as cattle and swine. Kenneth

2008 Sports
GAME OF THE WEEK
Alabama at Georgia


Saban faces
he early part of the decade saw the resurgence of a
former national powerhouse in Southern California.
Now, Alabama is trying to follow the Trojans'
example and vault back into prominence. After a disap-
pointing 7-6 campaign in 2007 under former LSU and for-
mer Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban, the
Crimson Tide enter the week ranked eighth in the most
recent Associated Press poll.
The season is young and the jury is still out on Saban,
but Alabama can take a step closer to its past glory
Saturday night when it heads to Sanford Stadium to face
third-ranked Georgia. A win in Saban's biggest game
would legitimize the Crimson Tide as national title con-
tenders and possibly serve as springboard to future suc-
cess on the gridiron and recruiting trail.
Records: Alabama 4-0 (1-0 SEC West); Georgia 4-0 (1-0
SEC West). Coaches: Alabama's Nick Saban (102-48-1);
Georgia's Mark Richt (76-19). Series: Alabama leads 35-
25-4. Kickoff: 7:45 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: Georgia displayed its balance in last week's
27-10 win at Arizona State. Matthew Stafford, who gave
the Bulldogs a 26-23 overtime win over the Crimson Tide
last year with a 25-yard touchdown pass, threw for 285
yards on 16-of-28 passing, and Knowshon Moreno rushed
for 149 yards and two scores on 23 carries. The defense
showed that it has the ability to shut down Alabama's
Glen Coffee by limiting the Sun Devils to 4 rushing yards
on 19 attempts. As the conference's mnost-penalized team,
Georgia must eliminate mistakes.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
Mississippi at Florida
Records: Mississippi 2-2 (0-1 SEC West); Florida 3-0 (1-0
SEC East). Coaches: Mississippi's Houston Nutt (113-72);
Florida's Urban Meyer (73-16). Series: Mississippi leads
11-10-1. Kickoff: 12:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: Raycom
Sports.
Outlook: A determined Tim Tebow accounted for 427
yards of total offense and four touchdowns in 2007 as the
Gators escaped from Oxford with a 30-24 victory. The
Rebels' hopes for an upset hinge on their ability to avoid
turnovers and keep Tebow and the rest of the Florida
backfield grounded. Mississippi, which turned over the
ball six times in last week's 23-17 loss to Vanderbilt. ranks
first in the conference with an average of 8.75 tackles for
loss per game. The Gators lead the conference in total
defense, scoring defense, net punting, punt returns, kick-
off returns and turnover margin.
Tennessee at Auburn
Records: Tennessee 1-2 (0-1 SEC East): Auburn 3-1 (1-1

Auburn's Tommy Tuberville (108-54). Series: Auburn
leads 25-21-3. Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday TV: ABC.
Outlook: After throwing for 248 yards on 21-of-31 pass-
ing in a 27-13 win over Southern Mississippi, Chris Todd
appeared to have solidified himself as Auburn's starting
signal-caller. However, Todd hasn't been able to stretch
the field against SEC defenses, with an average of 7.0
yards per attempt the past two weeks against Mississippi
State and LSU. Tennessee's offense has struggled under
first-year quarterback Jonathan Crompton and the
Volunteers' lack of pride was evident on a 78-yard punt
return for touchdown by Florida's Brandon James this
past week.

Mike Hartline may have shown that he has the pi
to lead his team through the rest of the grueling
20-14 win over Middle Tennessee. Hartline threw

Outlook: South Carolina's Spurrier hopes that

a 45-10 win over Alabama State, rank 117th out of
NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision teams in pass el
defense, pass defense and total defense. Despite i
neering a fouirth-quarter scoring drive that allowed
Gamecocks to post a 23-13 win over visiting Woff

GAME OF THE WEEK
North Carolina at Miami


Miami rebuilding, again


N orth Carolina head coach Butch Davis knows exact-
ly what his Miami counterpart, Randy Shannon, is
going through.
Before heading to the greener pastures of the National
Football League's Cleveland Browns. Davis had the task
of rebuilding a once-proud Miami program. Despite tak-
ing early lumps on the gridiron and battling NCAA sanc-
tions, Miami returned to prominence under Davis, and it
was Davis' players who helped the Hurricanes play for
national championships in 2001 and 2002.
Shannon. a Miami alum who spent three years at the
school as Davis' linebackers coach, is determined to
rebuild the "U" into a contender. After an uncharacteristic
5-7 showing in 2007, the Hurricanes can move one step
closer to that goal with a win over Davis' Tar Heels on
Saturday at Dolphins Stadium.
Records: North Carolina 2-1 (0-1 ACC Coastal); Miami
2-1 (0-0 ACC Coastal). Coaches: North Carolina's Butch
Davis (57-29); Miami's Randy Shannon (7-8). Series:
North Carolina leads 6-5. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV:
ESPN or ESPN2.
Outlook: Unable to overcome a disastrous first half
that saw North Carolina score 27 points, Miami's rally fell
short in last year's 33-27 loss at Chapel Hill. There were
plenty of positives for the Hurricanes in this past week's
41-23 win at Texas A&M. Quarterback Robert Marve
threw for a career-high 212 yards on 16-of-22 passing, and
running back Graig Cooper rushed for a career-best 128
yards and two scores on 16 carries.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
Maryland at Clemson
Records: Maryland 3-1 (0-0 ACC Atlantic); Clemson 3-1
(1-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Maryland's Ralph Friedgen
(59-32); Clemson's Tommy Bowden (90-47). Series:
Clemson leads 30-23-2. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV:
Raycom Sports.
Outlooklf The Terrapins put together their best offen-
sive performance in some time in last week's 51-24 win
over Eastern Michigan. Chris Turner threw for 212 yards
and two scores, wide receiver Danny Oquendo threw a
touchdown pass and Maryland collected 231 rushing
yards on 34 carries. After starting the season with a 34-10
lss to Alabama, the Tigers have yielded a combined 26
points during the past three weeks. Clemson's rushing
attack is not living up to expectations, but the passing
game is still strong:
Virginia at Duke
Records: Virginia 1-2 (0-0 ACC Coastal); Duke 2-1 (0-0
ACC Coastal). Coaches: Virginia's Al Groh (78-79); Duke's
David Cutcliffe (46-30). Series: Virginia leads 32-27.
Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV: ESPNU.
Outlook: Virginia needs to improve on both sides of
the football or its season will be in peril. The Cavaliers
rank last in the conference in rushing offense, total
offense, scoring offense, rushing defense, pass efficiency
defense, total defense, scoring defense and passing effi-
ciency. At 2-1 on the young season, this is the most impor-
tant game of the David Cutcliffe era. The Blue Devils pos-
sess the conference's best passing offense with 252.3
yards per game and the second-best passing defense.
Rhode Island at Boston College
Records: Rhode Island 1-3 (0-2 Colonial Athletic); Boston
College 2-1 (0-1 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Rhode Island's
Darren Rizzi (16-17); Boston College's Jeff Jagodzinski
(13-4). Series: Boston College leads 4-2. Kickoff: 1 p.m.
ET Saturday. TV: ESPN360.


Outlook: This should be nothing more than a tuneup
for the Eagles. The Rams rank 113th nationally among
NCAA Football Championship Subdivision teams in rush-
ing offense with 49.3 yards per game. Rhode Island is
averaging 296.3 yards through the air, but Jagodzinski's
squad ranks first among Football Bowl Subdivision teams
in pass efficiency defense and third in pass defense.
Colorado at Florida State (Jacksonville, Fla.)
Records: Colorado 3-0 (0-0 Big 12 North); Florida State 2-
1 (0-1 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Colorado's Dan Hawkins
(64-28); Florida State's Bobby Bowden (375-120-4). Series:
Florida State leads 2-0. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday.
TV: ABC or ESPN.
Outlook: The Buffaloes remained undefeated with a
17-14 win over West Virginia, which has played in a
January bowl the past five seasons. Freshman running
back Rodney Stewart rushed for a career-high 166 yards
on 28 carries against the Mountaineers, while quarter-
back Cody Hawkins threw for 179 yards with two touch-
downs and one interception on 22-of-33 passing. The
Seminoles were exposed in their first game against a
Football Bowl Subdivision team, throwing five intercep-
tions and losing 139 yards on penalties in last week's 12-3
loss to visiting Wake Forest.
Navy at Wake Forest
Records: Navy 2-2 (I-A Independent); Wake Forest 3-0
(1-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Navy's Ken Niumatalolo
(2-3); Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (82-72-1). Series: Wake
Forest leads 6-2. Kickoff: 3:45 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:
ESPNU.
Outlook: Navy, which is looking to lead the nation in
rushing for the fourth consecutive season, will make its
second trip to Tobacco Road in the past three weeks. The
Midshipmen were held in check by Duke on Sept. 13,
rushing for 207 yards on 46 carries in a 41-31 loss to the
Blue Devils. Wake Forest must do a better job of running
the ball and limiting penalties than it did against Florida
State.
South Florida at N.C. State
Records: South Florida 4-0 (0-0 Big East); N.C. State 2-2
(0-1 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: South Florida's Jim Leavitt
(83-47); N.C. State's Tom O'Brien (82-54). Series: N.C.
State leads 1-0. Kickoff 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:
ESPNU.
Outlook: South Florida, which played its first football
game in 1997 and vaulted to No. 2 in the 2007 national
polls, enters the game ranked 13th in the AP poll. The
Bulls' defense ranks 12th nationally in yards allowed per
game and 14th against the run. A Wolfpack defense that
has allowed an average of 27.3 points per game needs a
breakout performance
Virginia Tech at Nebraska
Records: Virginia Tech 3-1 (2-0 ACC Coastal); Nebraska
3-0 (0-0 Big 12 North). Coaches: Virginia Tech's Frank
Beamer (212-109-4); Nebraska's Bo Pelini (4-0). Series:
Nebraska leads 1-0. Kickoff: 7 p.m. CT Saturday. TV:
ABC.
Outlook: Quarterback Joe Ganz leads a Nebraska
attack that ranks 16th nationally in points per game, 17th
in pass efficiency and 20th in total offense. The Hokies
can pull out a victory by feeding off opponent penalties
and turnovers. While Vicginia Tech has lost 35 yards on
penalties and turned the ball over twice in its past two
games, opponents Georgia Tech and North Carolina lost
a combined 181 yards on penalties and combined to com-
mit seven turnovers.

sLUL Wide receiver
Brandon Robinson
registered the fifth 100-yard receiving
game of his career with seven catches
for 109 yards in this past week's 34-7
win over visiting Central Florida.
Robinson's 48-yard touchdown reception
from Chris Crane in the fourth quarter
was the second-longest grab of his
career.
O MU NThe Tigers improved to
22-0 all-time against NCAA
Football Championship Subdivision
opponents and posted their first shutout
since 2006 with this past week's 54-0
win over visiting South Carolina State.
Two of Clemson safety Michael
Hamlin's brothers, Markee and
Marquais, play for South Carolina State.
SSophomore punter Kevin
Jones was named to the watch
list for the 2008 Ray Guy Award Watch,
which is given to the nation's top
punter. In three games, he has punted
11 times for 496 yards for an average of
45.1, which is tied for first in the ACC
and ranks 11th nationally.
MM|| For the first time in
nearly 10 years, Florida
State quarterbacks combined to throw
five interceptions in this past week's 12-
3 setback to visiting Wake Forest. The 15
combined points were the lowest point
total in 27 meetings between the two
schools, eclipsing the previous low of 16
set in 1973.
SGeorgia Tech rushed for 438
yards in Saturday's 38-7
win over Mississippi State. It is the most
rushing yards by a Yellow Jackets team
since 1978 and the fifth-highest total in
school history. Running back Jonathan
Dwyer broke Bob McCoy's 60-year-old
school record with an 88-yard scoring
run in the third quarter.
wAgm For the first time in
nearly four years, the
Terrapins cracked the 50-point barrier
with this past week's 51-24 triumph
over visiting Eastern Michigan. Backup
quarterback Josh Portis collected 80
rushing yards on Maryland's final
touchdown drive. Portis' 98 rushing
yards were the most by a Maryland
signal-caller since Shaun Hill ran for
105 yards against Duke on Oct. 20, 2001.
p U|m The Hurricanes handed
rebuilding Texas A&M its
worst nonconference loss at Kyle Field
since a 30-10 setback to Alabama in
1988. In the 41-23 win over the Aggies,
Miami scored on its first offensive
possession for the first time since an
Oct. 28, 2006, game against Georgia
Tech.
|U North Carolina
committed 14
penalties for 121 yards in Saturday's 20-
17 loss to Virginia Tech, with 25 yards
coming on two separate third-down
attempts during a Hokies touchdown
drive. It was the first time the Tar Heels
had been penalized for more than 100
yards since a 2005 loss to Wisconsin.
I T Redshirt freshman
quarterback Russell
Wilson, who threw for a career-best 210
yards and three touchdowns on 21-of-31
passing in last week's 30-24 overtime
win over East Carolina, and linebacker
Nate Irving will not play Saturday
against South Florida. Wilson suffered
an undisclosed injury in the second half
against East Carolina and Irving suffered
a lower leg injury in the first half.-
p... Quarterback Peter LaUlich
was kicked off the team
after admitting in court that he violated
his probation by drinking alcohol. Marc
Verica, who made his first start Sept. 13
against Connecticut, is expected to get
the start Saturday against Duke.
p1,M For just the 11th time
under head coach Frank
Beamer, the Hokies rallied from a
fourth-quarter deficit to record a
victory. Saturday's win at North Carolina
was the program's 18th consecutive win
in a conference road opener and the
program's 16th win in 17 mad games
against ACC foes.
j For the third time in
the past 16 games, the
Demon Deacons' Alphonso Smith
recorded an interception on an
opponent's first play from scrimmage.
Smith, who accomplished the feat in
2007 against Boston College and
Vanderbilt, has 16 career interceptions.
