COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Poof. That puff of smoke you see is what's left of the University of Maryland football season. That's what happens when a team combines a paper-thin offense with a red-hot defense. It's flammable, for a while. That flicker of flame produced three wins in 11 tries for the Terps, who lost six of their last seven. After the first five games, Maryland smoldered when it had a chance to spread like wildfire. The Atlantic Coast Conference doused the Terps' dreams with a cold bucket of reality.

Hull grateful for all Terps memories By DAN SPEARS / Staff Writer COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Four seasons ago, Mike Hull found himself in the starting lineup at tight end for the Maryland Terrapins. All the dreams of touchdowns and victories were right there before him. Four years later, Hull is proof that dreams don't always come true. "We've got some great athletes," the South Hagerstown graduate said recently. "I'm just willing to do my part and get some time on the field.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Forget Momma. Ron Vanderlinden warned there would be days like this. With all the clamor that went in pushing for Randall Jones to be the University of Maryland's starting quarterback, the Terrapins' head coach came off sounding like the Surgeon General's warning on the side of a pack of cigarettes. --cont. from sports page -- "Randall's a freshman, and anytime you play a freshman he will make great plays but he also makes mistakes," Vanderlinden said in the early weeks of the season.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Ron Vanderlinden doesn't usually pull any punches. On Monday, the Maryland football coach loaded up with an announcement that should have been considered a knockout blow. Still, he couldn't pass up the chance of setting it all up with a playful jab. "I'm sure everyone here is wondering what I'm going to do on Saturday when offensive lineman Eric Timothy is ready to return to the lineup," Vanderlinden teased to open his weekly media luncheon. The coach let down his guard by leading with his right guard.

Maryland back in Baltimore Can Terps disguise all troubles on Halloween? BALTIMORE - University of Maryland football coach Ron Vanderlinden had visions of grandeur while sitting at his interview table at football's newest pleasure palace - Ravens stadium. Maryland will play Georgia Tech - one of the best teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference - at Camden Yards - one of the best facilities in the NFL - at noon Saturday. By Vanderlinden's logic, it could only mean good things for the Terps.

Maryland football - Time to win By DAN SPEARS / Staff Writer COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Maryland football coach Ron Vanderlinden sees his team in a third-down situation. He can only hope the Terrapins respond a little bit better than they did in 1999. "What we need to do now is break through and have that winning season," the fourth-year head coach said Thursday at Maryland Media Day at Byrd Stadium. "That's the next step for the Maryland football program. And we feel really good about our chances right now. " The Terps come off a 5-6 season - their second straight improvement under Vanderlinden - but twice watched their chances at the program's first bowl game in a decade slip through their grasp.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Ron Vanderlinden's flair for the dramatic was missing, well, drama. The University of Maryland coach's announcement of who will start at quarterback was neither earth-shattering or a ringing endorsement. "(Ken) Mastrole will start at quarterback for us on Saturday ...," Vanderlinden said during his weekly media luncheon. "... unless something interesting happens. " Mastrole was the odds-on favorite for the job ever since senior Brian Cummings packed away his helmet last season.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Kendall Ogle is out to change his image. The University of Maryland linebacker is poised and intelligent, courteous and patient. He's mature enough to accept setbacks, making him what might be considered a gracious loser. This year, Ogle is out to drop the latter half of that title. Ogle was the second leading tackler in the Atlantic Coast Conference last year, good enough to be considered for some ACC postseason honors. But that was all he was, considered.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The University of Maryland had every chance to play for the future on Saturday. But coach Ron Vanderlinden was happy to settle playing for the moment at hand. Time certainly wasn't of the essence against Temple in a game between two struggling teams. But the Terps turned on enough defense to overshadow a still glaring question on offense to claim a 30-20 victory over the Owls before 27,047 fans at Byrd Stadium. "I hated to lose the two games we did beween wins, but this was an important one for us," Vanderlinden said.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - At the rate Nick Novak is going, he's either going to be an NCAA legend or a podiatrist's poster child. That's because it seems like there is no feat Novak's feet can't perform. In slightly more than three years, Novak has gone from a near non-scholarship causality to the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-time leading scorer. If all goes well, he could be college football's all-time leading scorer by the end of his fourth year as the Terps' placekicker.
