With her dark hair starting to fall out due to chemotherapy, Natasha Redman's family made sure the 24-year-old Falling Waters, W.Va., woman wouldn't be the only one without much hair for Christmas. Redman was joined by several family members Friday night at 9 West Hair Studio near Martinsburg where they had their heads shaved in “solidarity” as she battles adenocarcinoma of the nasal cavity. “When she's able to grow hair again, that's when we'll grow our hair back,” said Redman's aunt, Connie Caton as salon manager Chrissy Jacobs shaved her head. “Her mother and I are going to keep it bald.” Caton, along with eight other family members, shaved their heads for Redman, who just underwent her first round of chemotherapy, according to her aunt.

Collin Klein ran for four touchdowns and threw three TD passes as No. 4 Kansas State got little resistance from No. 17 West Virginia in a 55-14 victory Saturday night that turned a matchup of Heisman Trophy contenders into campaign ad for the Wildcats' quarterback. Klein was 19 for 21 for a career-high 323 yards and ran for 41 yards for the Wildcats (7-0, 4-0 Big 12). It was no surprise the Mountaineers (5-2, 2-2) were awful on defense, it's been that way all season. For the second straight game, though, Geno Smith and the offense did nothing to keep it close.

Timing must not be a strong suit of Kevin Anderson or Oliver Luck. The Maryland and West Virginia athletic directors decided Monday would be a great day to make pleas for civility from their respective football fans. The problem? The bitter rivals play each other Saturday at Maryland's Byrd Stadium. Probably the wrong time to make those pleas. There's about as much chance for civility in College Park this weekend as a smooth drive to the game on the beltway. The requests from Anderson and Luck - both in the form of letters to fans - come in the wake of incidents that occurred at the teams' season-opening games two weekends ago, both of which were televised nationally.
