Miami by 39
Looking ahead to Miami - Miami's last game
MORGANTOWN, W. Va - The Hurricanes are mortal, that much is clear. They also find a way to win -- again and again and again.
On Saturday, amid fall foliage just beyond Mountaineer Field, the University of Miami scored the final 16 points to defeat West Virginia 40-23 and tie the school's consecutive victory mark of 29. Miami QB Ken Dorsey, in making up for another poor run-stopping effort by the defense, stuck the stake through the heart of the Mountaineers by passing for a career-high 422 yards. Dorsey also threw two touchdowns and shattered Gino Torretta's UM career records for passing yards, completions and total offense.

Dan Welch's preseason look at the Hurricanes
On January 3, 2002, a heretofore-unwitnessed hurricane slammed into the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California as the University of Miami demolished the University of Nebraska 37-14 to win its fifth national championship. Well, the eastern seaboard and parts of the mid-south are bracing themselves in the face of a comparable hurricane warning as Head Coach Larry Coker reloads his juggernaut for another national championship run.

Big East Basketball - Home courts and how they rank
For me, the signs of fall are not the leaves turning colors on the trees or wearing sweaters and jackets. It is the Big East Conference's Annual Media Day, which took place at The Theater inside Madison Square Garden this week. Each year the players are dressed for success, and they always seem a little bigger (check out Georgetown's Mike Sweetney at 6'8", 260 pounds), while the coaches seem a little grayer.

More on the new president
It is one of Richard McCormick's earliest memories: He is 4 or 5, accompanying his historian father for an interview with William H.S. Demarest, who was an elderly former president of Rutgers University. As Demarest and McCormick's father talk about the history of Rutgers for a book, the young boy plays with a replica of the Liberty Bell on the former president's desk. Charmed by the boy, Demarest gives him the cast-iron bell. Fifty years later, McCormick still has the bell, and on Dec. 1 he plans to put it on his desk when he takes over as the president of Rutgers. Just the idea of completing the circle -- from Rutgers' 11th president to its 19th -- was overwhelming to McCormick yesterday as he sat down in his new office in Old Queens.
For a son of Rutgers, top job is irresistible
He guided the University of Washington to record fund raising and fostered an entrepreneurial spirit through hard financial times.
But what students remember most about Richard McCormick, who was named president of Rutgers University in New Jersey yesterday, was his accessibility — even when they were at bitter odds with him over tuition, energy fees and labor issues.
