First and foremost, I just wanted to take a moment to remember all of the people lost in the tragedy of 9/11/01. I was a freshman living on the top floor of Easton Hall, and looking out my window and being able to see the smoke from the Pentagon was so surreal, as were F-16 fighter jets flying over campus. It's hard to believe that was 11 years ago...
Perry Hills named ACC rookie of the week
Awesome news for Perry, and hopefully a confidence boost to the offense. It wasn't a particularly strong performance, but 3 TDs is 3 TDs. -Ben B.

Alex Prewitt and B.J. Koubaroulis recap the week that was in Maryland sports
West Virginia-Maryland game time set: noon, on FX
A noon kick is great, great news. It's West Virginia, so the crowd isn't going to be sober, but they will be subdued. A night game probably would've been too much for Hills to handle. With a real chance of heading into this one 3-0, I'll take any help I can get.
FX is a strange one, though. -Ben B.
Weekend Wrap: Terps recruit Jacquille Veii unstoppable in Avalon rout
Perhaps that's because he was playing against the Maryland School for the Deaf. Doesn't strike me as elite competition.
But on a more serious note, Deon Long continues his rampage, with another three touchdowns at Iowa Western CC. That's eight in the first three games. -Ben B.
