ALBERTDICKSON/SN
Bears LB Hunter Hillenmeyerwill replace Brian Urlacher.
BY MATT HAYES
The last time we saw JacoryHarris, Miami’s sophomore quar-terback was standing calmly on thesidelines, arms folded watch-ing the Hurricanes geta wild, last-secondvictory over rivalFlorida State.You know, just anothergame.“You don’thave to worryabout Jacory,”Miami coachRandy Shannonsaid at his weeklynews conference,“he doesn’t getcaught up in a lotof that stuff.”Then hecertainly won’tget frazzled forMiami’s prove-itgame tonightagainst ACC heavyweight GeorgiaTech. Or, for that matter, formerMiami players calling and—how canwe say this?—
 subtly
suggesting it’stime Miami returns to the top.“Everyone wants us to bring the U back on top to the glory days,” Harrissaid at the news conference. “Andthat’s something we’re trying to do.”Miami is one of four formerpowers with a chance to make astatement about a return to glorythis weekend:
The opponent:
No. 14 GeorgiaTech, 7:30 tonight, ESPN
The plan:
Stop Tech’s triple optionearly—Canes gave up 472 yardsrushing to GT last year—and throwoff play action on offense against asecondary that had problems lastweek against Clemson.
The opponent:
West Virginia, 7:45p.m. Saturday, ESPN2
The plan:
New-look Tigershaven’t been tested yet, and anupgraded West Virginia offense—more pass-oriented with QB JarrettBrown—will cause problems forAuburn’s secondary.
The opponent:
at No. 7 BYU, 7p.m. Saturday, Versus
The plan:
If FSU made Miami’sHarris look like the Heisman favoriteand Jacksonville State resemble aDivision I-A team—and a goodone—imagine what BYU’s Max Hallwill do with the Cougars’ multipleschemes and precision system.
The opponent:
at No.13 VirginiaTech, 3:30 p.m. Saturday, ABC
The plan:
Huskers have lost theirlast nine games to ranked teams,and the defense—the best at NUsince earlier this decade—will getanother chance at slowing down VTQB Tyrod Taylor, who carried theHokies last year in Lincoln.

Myles Brandmade his name bytaking on coachBob Knight aspresident at IndianaUniversity. But hewent on to fightfor higher academic standards andathletes’ welfare as NCAA president.
Colorado avoided a three-gamesweep in San Fran, and boosted its N.L.wild-card lead to 3 1/2 games.

Powers surge
Former heavyweightslook to regain relevancy
One game into the NFL season,four teams must deal with keyinjuries at linebacker. Let’s look atthe ramifications.
Bears
 Lost:
Brian Urlacher (dislo-cated wrist). Out for the season.
 Impact:
“It’s a big blow,” Bearsoutside linebacker Lance Briggssaid. “He’s the guy who makes all theadjustments, he’s the signal-caller,he’s our quarterback on defense.”Replacement Hunter Hillenmeyer,who primarily has been a strongsidelinebacker, lacks Urlacher’s ability tocover receivers over the middle anddoesn’t have Urlacher’s sideline-to-sideline range.
Bills
 Lost:
Paul Posluszny (brokenleft arm). Expected to miss 6-8weeks.
 Impact:
Marcus Buggsdoesn’t have Posluszny’s size, buthe might be quicker and moreexplosive. He’s used to performingin big games, having played in theSEC (Vanderbilt).
Patriots
 Lost:
Jerod Mayo (sprainedMCL). Could miss 6-8 weeks.
 Impact:
Gary Guyton, whomoved inside with Adalius Thomasafter Mayo’s injury, must step up hisperformance against the run.
Seahawks
 Lost:
Leroy Hill (torn groin).Expected out until November.
 Impact:
Without Hill, thedefense loses some physicality andexperience. Will Herring, a formercollege safety, has speed andquickness but primarily has been aspecial teams player.

Formichella
if the showwas focusing on attractive women for the show.“Attractive women make for good TV,” Formi-chella told D.C. Sports Bog.As for Chris Cooley, he’s all for it. Asked if he had aproblem with other men gawking at his wife, he toldD.C. Sports Bog, “I think that’s an obvious answer:no. It’s not like I’m like, Oh I hope a lot of guys gohome and think about my wife. I mean, as long assomeone’s like, ‘His wife’s very pretty, that’s reallycool, she seems really nice.’ That’s what I want.”
Bills’ CB forgives
Still a little upset over having his lawn vandal-ized, Bills cornerback
Leodis McKelvin
is willing to for-give and forget.Referring to Bills fans as being great, McKelvinsaid Wednesday he doesn’t want anyone arrestedfor painting an obscenity and the game’s score onthe front lawn of his home shortly after a 25-24 sea-son-opening loss at New England on Monday.“It’s just one little incident. I hope it doesn’t hap-pen any more,” McKelvin said following practice. “Iwas mad, I was kind of like angry in a way, but Iwas laughing a little bit for what they put on there.”

7:30 p.m., ESPN
A year ago, Georgia Tech rolled up 472rushing yards and routed the Hurricanes on a Thursday night in Atlanta. Miami is rolling sofar in 2009, with a come-from-behind victoryat Florida State and a star-in-the-making insophomore QB Jacory Harris. But the YellowJackets’ option offense remains a thorn forthe Canes, who must find a way to stop TechQB Josh Nesbitt and RBs Jonathan Dwyer andAnthony Allen.

Brewers at Cubs

At this time last season, Milwaukee had just fired manager Ned Yost in an attempt toavoid a late-season collapse. And the Cubswere cruising toward a second consecutiveN.L. Central title. This season, Chicago is cling-ing to faint wild-card hopes, while Milwaukeeis fighting to get back to .500. This afternoon,Cubs rookie righthander Randy Wells will look to bounce back from perhaps his worst startof the season (3 2/3 innings, three earnedruns, nine baserunners) against Cincinnati.

Joe Flacco sure looked good in putting up307 yards passing and 3 TDs vs. the Chiefs inWeek 1. But with Baltimore being a run-firstteam, he won’t be a passing machine everyweek, will he? Analysts Brian Baldinger,Sterling Sharpe and Solomon Wilcots areconvinced he will be put up big numbers. The trio also breaks down three other big AFCgames
