What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

The Jason Campbell reviews: "poised and calm" (his dad). "He's cool, man" (B-Lloyd). "Very calm, very calm" (TB safety Jermaine Phillips). "Incredibly cool" (BaltSun). He "proved the change from Brunell was long overdue" (Rick Snider). "Brunell wasn't missed at all" (Dan Daly). The Brunell era's short passing game was noticeably absent (WashTimes). "A kid quarterback with some poise, wheels and a rifle" (Boz). "I guarantee we're going in the right direction" (Campbell).

Also, the Skins had their worst rushing game of the year, handling the offense was like "hitting a slow-pitch softball" for the Bucs, Archuleta is like off the depth chart or something and his agent says he's the scapegoat (I thought that was Brunell?), the defense is a mess "and the prospects for improvement are slim and none," and Gregg Williams explains that Cadillac "ran with passion." Whazzat?

Soriano takes off for the fifth-largest contract in MLB history, and Stan Kasten says he has no regrets after the Nats were never given a chance. Jarvis Hayes is now day-to-day, the Wiz are getting beat on the boards, and here's video of a shirtless Eddie Jordan.

The Terps still have a half-dozen bowl options, and Ralph Friedgen sells out his wide receivers . Gary Williams takes a shot at the football program and regrets scheduling Winthrop (which the Miss State coach calls a top 10 team), while the Maryland women don't complain about their schedule and rip GW.

Old Dominion gets its biggest win in six years--over Georgetown, which blames itself (although ODU went 15+ minutes without a turnover). (Also, an out-of-town writer calls Hoyas fans "out of control.") And the Maryland field hockey team wins another national championship.
