A man was arrested on sev-
eral charges after fleeing from
a police officer Saturday.
BPD Ofc. Jody Hoagland
was observing traffic when he
spotted a Ford -Explorer run a
stop sign at the intersection of
River Street and Central
Avenue East. He attempted to
stop the vehicle, but it sped up
and headed for the intersection
of SR 20 and 71 where the
driver ran a redlight and collid-
ed with a southbound van.
The driver of the Explorer,
later identified as Eliazar
Nunez, tried to flee the scene
on foot, but fell face first on the
ground. It was soon discovered
that his drivers license had
been suspended.
Authorities utilized the Jaws
of Life to free James Daniel
Rogers, 31, from the van he
was driving. He was transport-
ed to Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital where he was treated
for injuries.
Three vehicles in the Bay
Ford parking lot sustained
minor damage. Nunez was
booked into the county jail.

Local man arrested after voting in



both Calhoun and Liberty elections


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A man's persistence about
having his' provisional ballot
counted in the primary election
led to his arrest Monday for
violating-voting laws.
Joey Harold Bright, 41, has
been charged with casting
more than one ballot in an
election and voting in person


after casting an absentee bal-
lot.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office, Bright
reportedly visited the precinct
12 scout hut in Calhoun.
County Aug. 26 to cast his bal-
lot. An elections worker
informed him he was no longer
a registered voter in Calhoun
County. Bright allegedly stated
he owned land in Calhoun


County and that gave him a
right to vote. He was given a
provisional ballot, then voted,
but failed to sign the ballot,
prompting the pollworker to
set it aside until he returned to
sign it.
TWo days later, Bright called
Calhoun County Supervisor of
Elections Margie Laramore to
inquire as to whether his provi-
sional ballot was included in


the election results. She
informed him it was not count-
ed because he failed to sign it.
Bright was reportedly adamant
that his vote be counted and
said he would stop by and sign
the provisional ballot.
Laramore decided to
research the matter and
learned that Bright was a regis-
tered voter in Liberty County
and completed an absentee

The historic log cabin formerly located at Blountstown High

to open tins month


FCCD Chapter 36, along
with the Blountstown Police
Department, will be having the
Haunted House again this year.
Our location has changed again;
this year we will be located in
the brick building beside
Helping Hands Thrift Store,
across from Snowden's
Surveying, on Pear Street. '
Opening night is at dark on
Oct. 18 (possibly sooner...spe-
cific dates to be announced in
next week's edition). Those vis-
iting the haunted house should
be aware...the building where
the event will be held has a dis-
turbing history. The details fol-
low. Consider yourself warned.

THE STORY BEHIND THE
TERROR HOUSE
Jonas and Ava Moody were
a pleasant young couple start-
ing their lives in a small river
'town. They opened a ware-
house together. Local shop-
keepers paid to store their
goods in the warehouse until
they were either sold or.
shipped.
After several years of mar-
riage, Ava found that she and
her husband were unable to
have children. A grief stricken
Ava mourned to have a child of
her own. Jonas watched help-
lessly as his wife grew more and
more depressed until one day,
he decided he must find a way
to ease her pain.
They chose to adopt a small
child. But after only a few short
months, what was supposed .to
be the answer to the end of
their suffering, turned tragic
when the child accidentally shot
itself with Jonas' gun, in the
warehouse.
Ava became mad, and with-
out Jonas' knowledge, began to
abduct young children and hold
them captive, hiding them in
the warehouse. When Jonas
discovered what his insane wife
was doing, he was appalled. He
knew, however, what the towns-
people would do to her if they
found out. So, as he still loved
his wife dearly, he decided, to
aide her in her plan and keep


her dark secret.
After a number of years, of
committing these atrocious acts,
Jonas also became maddened.
With neither of them in their
right minds, they began to tor-
ture and terrorize the young-
sters. What started out as an
attempt to have a happy family
became a breeding ground for
evil.
The warehouse became a
meeting place for all things
wicked and horrific, known to
all as TERROR HOUSE.
After years of torture, tor-
ment and unspeakable acts, the
captives ,rebelled and brutally
murdered Jonas. A demented
Ava hanged herself as a result of
the loss of her husband and col-
league in immorality.

the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
never missed an issue. .


SThank You!

I would like to thank everyone that supported me and worked so
% ; ~ s hard for my campaign.
I appreciate everyone that put signs In theIr yards, put signs out, and

department
*Painted the office and put down new carpet
*1 didn't hire anyone to replace my position In the tax department saving an employee salary for 4
years. I used this money to replace old equipment in the tax dept. with much needed new computers,
receipt validators, and printers. I also purchased a scanner to scan daily deposits and checks for YOUR
PROTECTION as well as the office and to scan old records to free up space. I continued to work in the
property tax dept. as well as perform the duties of the Tax Collector.
*We organized the old records by department allowing us to pull records'at your request.

efficient practices in their homes. 'The
FPU Energy Conservation Challenge
willrtransform saving energy into a.
friendly competition, motivating FPU
customers to be resourceful and become,
the best energy conservationist in FPU's
Northwest Division.

"The FPU Energy Conservation

customers to reduce energy consumption
and in turn lower their electric bills,"
stated Don Myers, general manager of
FPU's Northwest Division. "Energy
efficiency is something every member
of the family can take part in. I hope
this contest creates a community that is
overall more aware of the importance of
energy conservation."

The Energy Conservation Challenge will
track customers' energy usage over a
three-month period, officially starting on
a customer's October meter-read date.
The total kilowatt hours consumed will


then be compared against 2007 data from
the same time period. Each customer
will be asked to document conservation
measures used, and in January FPU will
announce the customer that achieved the
greatest energy savings. The winner will
receive a $500 Lowe's gift card 'good

BY JIM McINTOSH

the season with wins over
Cottondale, Marianna's 9th
grade team, and Graceville.
Meanwhile, the varsity team
picked up a three-straight game
match over Graceville to post a
2-9;. 0-4, 2-2A mark on the

Cottondale Lady Hornets. The
Lady Cats (7-2) never looked
back and went on to notch a 25-
11 win.
In Game 2 Cottondale held a
3-point lead until Aerial Folsom
put Altha back on top, 15-14,
with. 5 straight service points.
However, the Hornets would
come back to knot the score,
24-24, but Kelsey. Rehberg's

ry.
Cottondale rebounded in
Game 2 and jumped out to an
11-6 lead on their, way to a 25-
16 win.
But the Lady Wildcats were
not surrendering without a fight
and they were helped in Game
3 by the fact that' Cottondale
couldn't put their serves in the
court. Hannah Waldorff put
Altha ahead 9-8 and they never
relinquished that lead going on
to win, '25-17.
However, Cottondale would
force a Game 5 by coming out
on top in Game 4, 25-16.
, The Lady Hornets held a
14-10 lead in Game 5 before
their volley landed, out of
bounds to give Altha life at 14-

service ace and Cottondale mis-
played her second serve to

Waldorff with 10 points that
included a service ace. Emily

on Marianna with an 8-1 lead
and ended up muzzling the
Lady Dogs, 25-8.,


Altha's service errors in
Game 2 allowed Marianna to
stay within 3 points. But
Sharlyn Smith's 7 straight serv-
ice points gave Altha a com-
manding 24-14 lead. Marianna
misfired on the game and match
point serve to give the Lady

BMS Tigers improve to 3-0



with wins over Tolar, St. Joe


BY COACH LINK BARBER

The Blountstown Middle
School Tigers remain undefeat-
ed by defeating Tolar Middle
School and Port St. Joe Middle
School. With two games
remaining in the regular season,
the excitement is building for
the players and coaches as they
continue working to reach their
goal of going undefeated on the
season.
The Tigers tangled with the
Bulldogs on the 16th of
September and emerged victo-
rious by the narrow margin of,6
- 0. The Tigers and the
Bulldogs slugged it out through
nearly 4 quarters without either
team scoring. With 42 seconds
left in the game the Tigers
pulled off a fake punt, which
carried them inside the 20-yard
line. On the ensuing play the
Tigers Vakie Brigham ran a
sweep into the end zone to put
the only points of the game on
the board.
Tolar is always a tough team
to play and this year was no
exception. They are always
big, physical and well coached.
Our boys played outstanding
and held off the Bulldogs twice
inside the twenty to get the vic-
tory.' Right before halftime the
Tolar quarterback threw a pass
to his tight-end that looked like
it was going to go for a touch-
down but Blountstown's Bobby
Andrews chased the boy down
inside the 10-yard line, stripped
the ball away and then returned
to about thirty yards to prevent
the score. That was a huge play
that helped us win the game.
,The Tigers' defense once again
got a shut-out and the offense
got it done when they needed
to.
On September 23rd, the
Tigers took on the Port St. Joe
Sharks for the number 1 spot in
eastern division. The Tigers
came out of the game with a 32
- 6 'victory and, because Tolar
defeated Wewa, the Tigers
claimed the #1 spot in the east-


ern division of the Panhandle
Conference. The Tigers and
the Sharks played a very close
game through three quarters'
but in the fourth quarter the
Tigers speed and offensive, line
took control of the game and
scored three quick touchdowns
to put the game out of reach for
the Sharks.
We managed to get a 12 0
lead in the third quarter but the
Sharks drove down the field
and punched it into the end
zone right at the end of the third
quarter. Kenya Baker, our cen-
ter and middle linebacker, went
down with what we think is a
concussion and we had to
scramble to find replacements.
Our younger guys filled in for,
Kenya and we managed to
score on our next three posses-
sions. Bobby Andrews and


Vakie Brigham both had long
touchdown runs to. put the
game out of reach. The boys
are getting better each week
and younger players are step-
ping it up and helping out when
called upon.
The Tigers were set to trav-
el to Wewa on the 30th to play
the Gators at 6:00 (details
unavailable at press time) and
will turn around and host the
Grand Ridge Indians on Oct.
7th at 6:00 at Bowles Field.
Come on out and watch the
BMS. Tigers in action!!!

The Counly Record, OCTOBER 1, 2008, Page 7





Fla. High wins 42-0; Tigers are 0-4


The Blountstown Tigers
were outmatched by a talented
Florida High team in
Tallahassee Friday night and


lost their fourth straight game of
the season, 42-0. "There guys
were just beating our guys.
They were better in more


places than we were. We would
be in position to make a play
and miss tackles," coach Greg
Jordan said Monday.


The Tigers managed only 70
yards of offense while Fla. High
had a balanced offensive attack
of 179 yards passing and 150
yards rushing.
"We played well in the first
quarter until they had a big
punt return inside our 20 to set
up their first score to lead 7-0
after one qmurter. They hit a
long pass play to go up 14-0 and
scored twice more in the second
quarter to lead 28-0 at halftime.
We just couldn't move the ball
against them," Jordan added.


Malcolm Ivory ran hard for
36 yards on 12 carries and
Darrin Huff had 26 yards on 10
attempts. Alexander Garrett
had 8 yards on 1 carry. Three
other Tiger runningbacks each
had negative yardage.
According to coach Jordan,
linebacker Jeremy Watson suf-
fered a foot injury and may not
see action this Friday.
Jason Money led the Tiger
defense with 10 tackles fol-
lowed by Lance Clemons with
8. Cavon Cox and Chase


Johnson each had 7 tackles with
Johnson recording one sack.
Alexander Garrett and Darrin
Huff were each in on 5 tackles.
Things won't get any easier
for the Tigers this week as the
Wakulla War Eagles come to
Bowles Field for the first time
since 1984 when they in our
district. Wakulla defeated
Rickards 22-21 in overtime last
week and lost to Leon earlier in
the season. "They're strong
arid we'll have to play at our
best, Jordan noted.


It's often said that football
teaches us all real lessons about
life. This ia a tough lesson the
2008 Tigers are getting so far.
It's easy to coach, play and
be a fan of the football team
when things always go your
way. It's not so easy sometimes
when things go against you.
There's an old saying that when
the going gets tough, the tough
get going. The Tigers are going
through a rough part of the
schedule with a team not ready
physically or mentally to cope
sometimes. These young men
are giving everything they have
to stay. in these games, 'but
sometimes that's not enough.
The other night against Fl.
High they had 11 players on
each side of the ball. They did
not have one player going both
ways, we had nine going both
ways. The 'only thing public


about Fl. High is they take the
state FCAT test. They had 11
upperclassmen players that
were not on their roster last
season just move in. That
makes the challenge of rural
schools competing against those
types of schools even more diffi-
cult. That's what alot of people
don't take into consideration -
we play with what grows up
here. We are not able to go out
and get 'new players if we don't
like what's coming up.from the
middle school or our JV pro-
gram. But that's also what
makes it special when we do
have the players to compete
statewide with public and pri-
vate schools.
This is a brutal five game
stretch the Tigers" opened the
.season with. The combined
record of the four opponents we
have lost to is 12-3. Of those


I


losses, Fl. High dumped St. Joe
and West Gadsden's two losses
were to Crestview and
Niceville.
We have another easy onie
coming up this week (just kid-
ding) as we take on class 3A
Wakulla here at Bowles Field.
It's probably been close to 20
years since Wakulla has played
on our field. Wakulla vs.
Blountstown is anold and fierce
district rival that dates back
many, many years. The deck is
stacked against the Tigers again
this week as we take on a much
larger school. These young men
need your words of encourag-
ment and, more importantly,
need your support in the stands
Friday night as we take on this
tough challenge.
Come out and support the
Tigers! Game time is at 7:00!!
See ya there!!!

Tommy McClellan

for

Superintendent of Schools


REMEMBER ME when you go to the polls on November 4. I feel that with the
support of the voters we can make a positive change in the superintendent's
office. I would probably be facing a different opponent if the first primary wasn't
split 3 ways. If you really want a change, I humbly ask you to vote Tommy
McClellan on your ballot. We cannot have another 3 way split, and make these
position changes. I have the experience, background, and knowledge to do the
job efficiently.

' REMEMBER ME...I was not the person that raised your property taxes to the
highest levy in county history.

REMEMBER ME..if you are a school employee that did not get a raise while a.
select few were receiving high dollar raises. We don't need that kind of
favoritism. If we have money for raises it should be across the board.

REMEMBER ME...I did not close down the school lunch program, and go to
outside vendors. When we privatized our lunch program many people lost their
jobs, the portions and quality level of food went down, and people could not
bring in or order out for food anymore. Local merchants had to close their doors.

REMEMBER ME...I was the one that upgraded the dual enrollment program
from offering only college English to giving students the opportunity to also take
Math, Science, Social Studies, and Foreign Languages toward college credit. Now
we have lost many of those classes and gone backwards which takes
opportunities away from our students. The Altha students were hit the hardest.

REMEMBER ME...if you just want to return to a more common sense
government approach.

REMEMBER ME...TOMMY McCLELLAN...Your best choice to lead us
forward, and get us back on track.

Sports News
by Junicia Baker,
BHS sports correspondent
Thursday, September 25th
our Lady Tigers took on the
Sneads Pirates. The J.V volley-
ball team remained strong
throughout the game although
they had fallbacks; they still
managed to keep up. After two
games Sneads took it home.
The Varsity game was intense
and very challenging. As the
game started Sneads was ahead
and won two straight games,
but the Lady Tigers wouldn't
stand for this. As the 3rd game
came along the Lady Tigers
stepped up and took the win..
The night was full of excitement
as the teams went. into the 4th
game of the night. The Lady.
Tigers stayed strong and once
again took a win. In the 5th
and final game, the teams and
the crowd alike were full of
anticipation and enthusiasm.
The game stayed close and very
challenging, but the Varsity
Lady Tigers gave everything
they had and took home the
WIN! Go Lady Tigers!

Has It Really Been A Year?
My heart still aches
and I still shed a tear,
It seems like yesterday
and it has been a year.
I awoke that night shaking &
gasping for breath,
little did I know it was the
'night of your death.
I was walking the floor with an
uneasy dread when they
knocked on my door and told
me you were dead.
I get lost in my thoughts
in so many ways and
hope it will get better
in another 365 days.
You will always be a
Song in My Hebrt.

Smember
Much has
been written about
-. 4. aging. .Some
a humorous; some
serious. We came
across a little gem
we thought you
might enjoy as
T7m Adams much as we did. It
is titled, "IT'S
-LATER THAN
YOU THINK."
"Everything is farther than it used
to be. It's twice as far to the station for
instance, and they have added a hill,
I've noticed.
Seems to me they are making
staircases steeper than they used to
make them in the good old days. And
have you noticed the .small print they
are using? Newspapers are getting
farther and farther away when I hold
them, and I have to squint to make out
the 'news. No sense in asking to have
them read aloud. Everyone speaks in
such a low voice a person can hardly
heat them.
The barber doesn't hold a mirror
behind me any more so that I can see
the back of my head. The material in
my suits is always too skimpy around
the waist and in the seat. And shoe
laces are so short they are all but
impossible to reach.
Even people are changing. They
are so much older than I am. I ran into
an old classmate the other night, and
he had aged so he didn't recognize
me. I got to thinking about the poor old
fellow and while doing so, I glanced at
my own reflection in the mirror.
Confound it! They don't- have the
same kind of glass in mirrors
anymore!"...

She was a gift from God. To

cherished also. She touched the
lives and everyone that knew her
and the people that didn't know
her with just her smile and joy
she always had. She was only
on loan to us for too short a time.
After 8 years our. hearts still hurt
to see her, hear her laugh, see
that beautiful smile, to hug her.
She is still loved and missed by
all her family. We love 'you,

"Just Like Yesterday"
By Bria Snowden
It was just like yesterday
We had not even
the last words to say.
He was the best.
He was nothing like
none of the rest.
Always happy, but never
in a lifetime sad.
He was an awesome dad,
Which made me, my brother,
and sister very glad.
Though times got rough
we still stayed tougld
It was just like yesterday
Having one last time to pray.
Even though it feels as if our
hearts have just rottened away.
It was just like yesterday,
In our hearts you
will never be forgotten.
Happy Birthday, Daddy,

God is real and with the
things that these kids are faced
with on a daily basis, they have
to be equipped to live in this

can't take them is if we instill in
them what is true and the truth
is serving God. A lot of people
may not understand what God
is doing with these kids but He
is raising up a New Generation

Instead of being upset about

God's will and I'm just a willing

I thank God for rising me

The local congregation of
Jehovah's Witnesses would like
to invite you to attend a two-
day Assembly on October 4-5
at the Marina Civic Center in
Panama City. The theme of the
Assembly is, "Keep Conquering
the Evil With the Good." (Rom.
12:21).
There will be two days at the
Assembly o f spiritual encour-
agement. It will answer the
vital questions, "How is it possi-
ble to stand firm against those
opposing true worship?, and
How can we defeat the forces
that constantly try to pull us
away from our worship?
The overseer for this district,
Leslie Jones, will deliver the
talks, "Fortified to Conquer the
Evil With the Good?", "Beware
of Overconfidence!," "Al Evil
Soon to End!," and
"Strengthening Our Faith to
Conquer the World." These
talks are timely because today
Satan is relentless in his attacks
against true Christians.
A featured speaker will be
Billy Nichols, a traveling repre-
sentative of the Watchtower
Bible and Tract Society. He
will give the discourses entitled,
Now is the Season to .Stay
Awake!," based on Romans
13:11-13, and "Do Not Show


Yourself Discouraged in the
Day of Distress," based on
Proverbs 24:10.
All the encouraging discours-
es and demonstrations will helf
Christians to be determined to
"keep conquering the evil with
the good" and fortify all for the
difficult times ahead.
The program will start at
10:00 a.m. on Saturday and
Sunday. There is no admission
charge and no collections are
taken.

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

A Blountstown toddler is
battling a disease with a name
almost as big as her.
Little Brianna "Bri" Begor
was diagnosed with Langerhans
cell histiocytosis when she was
11 months old. As she prepares
to celebrate her second birth-
day, her family is praying her
treatments will soon be over.
"We were at my aunt Betty
Ann's birthday party last year
when Bri became real lethar-
gic," recalls her mother,
Amanda Yon.
The family made a trip to
the local emergency room and
then to Tallahassee Memorial
where doctors were baffled by
her condition. Later, she was
moved to Shands where
answers came. A doctor there
examined Bri and immediately
recognized the condition as his-
tiocytosis. "There are only 100
doctors in the world that treat
this disease and he was one of
them," says Amanda. "He told
my grandmother he was sur-
prised she had made it the night
she had gotten sick."
Histiocytosis is an abun-
dance of histiocytes, a type of
white blood cell that attacks
healthy organs and tissue.
There is no known cause or
cure. Extremely rare, it affects
approximately five people -in
1,000,000 each year in the U.S.
When she was first diag-
nosed, Bri spent a month in the


Brianna "Bri' Begor
hospital. During her stay and
upon her release, family mem-
bers pitched in to help Amanda
with travels for medical care.
Patients typically undergo
chemotherapy to battle this dis-
ease and Bri has nearly com-
pleted 52 weeks of treatments.
Amanda is hopeful that Bri's
next set of tests will mean the
end of chemo. "If they don't
come back okay, she will have
another 52 weeks of chemo
again," she explains. Either
way, Bri will have regular
checkups to monitor her condi-
tion until she is 21 years old.


"She takes it very well,""
Amanda says of her spunky lit- '
tle girl, noting that after the first
round of chemo, she was very
ill, but quickly returned to her
old self and garnered lots of
attention from staff. "The nurs-
es spoiled her so bad!"
Bri is unable to go to daycare
and Amanda is staying home
. full time to care for her. She
extends her appreciation to all
those who have offered support
(watch for a thank you note in
next week's edition).
Bri will be celebrating her
second birthday Saturday, Oct.
4, at 3. p.m. with a Little
Mermaid party at Sam Atkins
Park. "I want to invite every-
body to come and meet the lit-
tle girl they have been .praying
for and never met," says:
Amanda. "No toys are neces-.
sary, we have plenty. Just come
and meet her and have cake,.
hamburgers, and hot dogs.",
Please rsvp to 674-5696 so,-
Amanda can get a head count
for food.

Disability-
the fact that disability is a natu-
ral part of life, people with dis-
abilities have not always had
access to equal opportunities.
Not until 1975, with the pas-
sage of the federal Education
for All Handicapped Children
Act, did school-aged children
with disabilities have a right to
a free appropriate public edu-
cation.
Since 1926, specially
designed instruction and relat-
ed services have expanded
throughout Florida. Now,
approximately 400,000 stu-
dents identified with disabilities
are participating in Florida's
public education and are gradu-
ating and going on to postsec-
ondary education or employ-
ment. Calhoun County cur-
rently educates over 650 stu-
dents identified with disabilities
who receive a quality education
in the least restrictive environ-
ment.
We are proud to participate
in promoting awareness of dis-
ability history and contributions
of individuals with disabilities
and to designate the first two
weeks in October as Disability
History and Awareness.
.For more information about
the Exceptional Student
Education programs in
Calhoun County; please contact
Staci Williams, ESE Director
at 674-8734 ext. 229.

*Mississippi is just the third loss to an
unranked team under head coach Urban
Meyer. Florida, which entered the game
as the only team in the nation without a

p sTUCKY Derrick Locke became
the fifth player in school
history to return a kickoff 100 yards for
a TD in the second quarter of this past
week's 41-3 win over Western Kentucky.
Locke's return came a little more than
10 years after Craig Yeast became the
second Wildcat to have a 100-yard
kickoff return on Sept. 26, 1998.
Running back Charles Scott
extended his streak of
consecutive 100-yard rushing games to
four with a 141-yard performance in

games since former All-American
Charles Alexander did it 30 years ago.
HMSSISSIPPI The Rebels notched
the program's first win
over a top five opponent since a'20=13
triumph over No.3 Notre Dame in 1977.
The victory over Florida was the

win over a top five team since a 15-7
victory at LSU in 1962.
MHIS. STATE Junior tailback
Anthony Dixon's
fourth-quarter touchdown against LSU
was the 26th of his career. Dixon is one
touchdown away from tying the school
record of Michael Davis, who played at
the school from 1991-94.
IMCAROLIHA UAB didn't register a
first down until there
was 6:34 left in the second quarter of its
26-13 loss to the Gamecocks on
Saturday. The Blazers' 12 first downs and
67 rushing yards are the third fewest by
a South Carolina opponent since head
coach Steve Spurrier took the reins of
the program.
MNESSEE Indianapolis Colts
quarterback Peyton
Manning was on the sideline this past
week for the Volunteers' two-point loss
to visiting Auburn. Tennessee is off to a
1-3 start for the first time since 1994,
which was the second full season for
head coach Philip Fulmer and
Manning's freshman year. Four years
after that 1-3 start, the Vols and signal-
caller Tee Martin won the national
championship.
IM DERBILT ESPNs College GameDay
crew is headed to
Nashville for Saturday's game between
Auburn and the Commodores. "This is

GAME OF THE WEEK
Maryland at Virginia
/' .1_%_ .' It .,NW .


nItustration 2008 Bruce PLante (pLantemk.com)


Terps rolling, Cavs reeling


hanks to three lopsided losses to open the 2008 cam-
paign, Virginia fans are again logging on to the Web
site firealgroh.com.
Groh, who left his position as the New York Jets head
coach to return to his alma mater in December 2000, was
on the hot seat after his team went a combined 12-12 over
the 2005 and 2006 seasons. The Cavaliers responded to
the pressure in 2007, saving Groh's job and earning a
Gator Bowl berth with a national-record five wins by two
points or fewer. '
Several critics have cited a recent string of off-the-field
problems and three losses to Southern California,
Connecticut and perennial ACC bottom-feeder Duke by
an average of 36 points as reasons why Virginia must
make a change. Saturday night's game against Maryland
could possibly be Groh's last chance to make his case.
Coming off a 20-17 win at Atlantic Division favorite
Clemson, Maryland appears to be in the middle of a ren-
aissance. Having rebounded from an embarrassing 24-14
loss to Middle Tennessee State, the Terrapins look to
move another step closer to the early days of the Ralph
Friedgen era when the program compiled three consecu-'
tive double-digit win seasons.
Records: Maryland 4-1 (1-0 ACC Atlantic); Virginia 1-3
(0-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Maryland's Ralph Friedgen
(60-32); Virginia's Al Groh (78-80). Series: Maryland
leads 41-29-2. Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPNU.
Outlook: The Terrapins showed their resiliency by
outscoring Clemson 14-0 in the second half this past
week. Maryland was outgained 372-295 and leading rush-
er Da'Rel Scott was limited to 39 yards on 23 carries, but
Friedgen's scheming resulted in a 76-yard run by wide
receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and three passing plays of
at least 21 yards. Groh might want to consider a complete
overhaul for his attack and play to quarterback Marce
Verica's strengths, because the Cavaliers rank last in the
conference and are among the nation's worst in rushing
offense, total offense, turnover margin and passing effi-
ciency.
THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
Boston College at N.C. State
Records: Boston College 3-1 (0-1 ACC Atlantic); N.C.
State 2-3 (0-1 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Boston College's
Jeff Jagodzinski (14-4); N.C. State's Tom O'Brien (82-55).
Series: Boston College leads 3-2. Kickoff: Noon ET
Saturday. TV: Raycom Sports.
Outlook: The Wolfpack needs, to show up from the
start of the game and run the ball effectively if it hopes to
win the second annual O'Brien Bowl against the Eagles.
South Florida scored seven times in the first half this past
week and held N.C. State to 26 rushing yards, which was
the program's worst outing on the ground since a 23-yard
rushing performance against Florida State nearly four
years ago. Boston College showed off its running game in
this past week's 42-0 whitewash of Rhode Island. Montel.
Harris ran for 143 of his team's 289 rushing yards and
three touchdowns against the Rams.
Duke at Georgia Tech
Records: Duke 3-1 (1-0 ACC Coastal); Georgia Tech 3-1
(1-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Duke's David Cutcliffe (47-
30); Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson (110-40). Series:
Georgia Tech leads 44-30-1. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday.
TV: ESPNU.
Outlook: Creating turnovers and the passing game, led
by quarterback Thaddeus Lewis and wide receiver Eron


Riley, have been the keys to Duke's success this season.
Georgia Tech and its run-oriented attack will have to
avoid unmanageable third-down situations against a
defense that has limited opponents to a 26.5-percent con-
version rate on third downs. The Yellow Jackets are com-
ing off a 38-7 win over Mississippi State, which saw them
run for 438 yards and collect 500 yards of total offense.
Western Kentucky at Virginia Tech
Records: Western Kentucky 2-3 (I-A Independent);
Virginia Tech 4-1 (2-0 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Western
Kentucky's Dave Elson (9-8); Virginia Tech's Frank
Beamer (213-109-4). Series: First meeting. Kickoff: 1:30
p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ACC Select
Outlook: It's difficult to believe that the Coastal
Division-leading Hokies are flying under the radar.
Virginia Tech has ripped off four consecutive wins since
the season-opening loss to East Carolina, and they should
make it five straight against the Hilltoppers. Virginia
Tech's offense came alive in this past week's 35-30 win at
Nebraska, collecting a season-high 377 yards of total
offense and scoring on six straight possessions. Western
Kentucky, which is making the transition from the
Football Championship Subdivision level, has given'up an
average of 37.7 points in losses to Indiana, Alabama and
Kentucky.
Florida State at Miami
Records: Florida State 3-1 (0-1 ACC Atlantic); Miami 2-2
(0-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Florida State's Bobby
Bowden (376-120-4); Miami's Randy Shannon (7-9).
Series: Miami leads 30-22. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: ABC or ESPN2.
Outlook: What was once the premier game in the
nation has been reduced to a bragging-rights showdown
-between two teams trying to avoid also-ran status in their
respective divisions. Miami let a 17-7 halftime lead slip
away this past week against visiting North Carolina and
suffered a 28-24 setback at Dolphin Stadium. Freshman
quarterback Robert Marve threw for 135 yards and three
touchdowns on 18-of-27 passing, but he also threw two
costly interceptions in the game's final minutes. North
Carolina managed only 35 yards on 33 carries, but the
fact that essentially a third-string quarterback, the Tar
Heels' Cameron Sexton, threw for 242 yards and two
scores has to concern Shannon and his staff.
Connecticut at North Carolina
Records: Connecticut 5-0 (1-0 Big East); North Carolina 3-
1 (1-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Connecticut's Randy Edsall
(46-51); North Carolina's Butch Davis (58-29). Series:
North Carolina leads 1-0. Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:
ESPN2.
Outlook: Despite its undefeated record, the jury is still
out on defending Big East co-champion Connecticut The
Huskies, who posted three-point victories over Temple
and Baylor, survived another scare this past week with a
26-21 win over conference rival Louisville. Connecticut's
Donald Brown enters the game as the nation's top rusher
with an average of 181.2 yards per game. However, an
anemic passing game ranks 106th nationally. The Tar
Heels' offensive line should be in for another test against
Connecticut North Carolina ranks llth in the conference
in sacks allowed per game and 98th nationally in rushing
offense, while the Huskies are averaging a Big East-best
6.4 tackles for loss per game. The Tar Heels' Brandon
Tate, who ranks second nationally in punt returns and
19th in kickoff returns, could be the difference.

Rhode Island 41-0 for
the second shutout in their first four

in 2003. The Terrapins, who improved to
5-3 against Clemson under head coach
Ralph Friedgen, have registered four
consecutive wins over ranked foes.

Dowling, who intercepted
two passes in the first half against Duke,
and linebacker Clint Sintim were
injured on the same play in the third
quarter this past week. "We would have
liked to have them in there, sure, but it
was an opportunity for some guys to
step in and do a little bit more for us,"
Virginia head coach Al Groh said.

points in the first quarter
of their 35-30 win over Nebraska. It was
