COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Matt Canada is plenty busy, and he has been for days. As interim coach of the Maryland football team, Canada is not just putting in a game plan for Saturday’s opener against No. 23 Texas. He is also fulfilling his duties as offensive coordinator and, most importantly, making sure the players stay focused during a season dedicated to fallen teammate Jordan McNair — a season that will start with head coach DJ Durkin on leave and the subject of an investigation.

GLF--ON THE FRINGE-DECHAMBEAU
PARAMUS, N.J. — The description of Bryson DeChambeau as a “mad scientist” is appropriate as long as this much is understood. The scientist is always working, always searching, rarely satisfied. DeChambeau, without question, is a “different kind of cat.” Those were his words last week after he shot a career-low 63 to take a four-shot lead into the final round, and then missed only two greens and never let anyone closer than two shots at The Northern Trust. It was his third PGA Tour victory in a little more than a year, moving him to No. 12 in the world and, for the moment, No. 1 in the FedEx Cup. The SMU physics major does love his science.

Tony Romo received a sponsor’s exemption to play an opposite-field event on the PGA Tour this year. His next foray into golf is something he wants to earn. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and CBS football analyst has entered the Web.com Tour qualifying tournament, which starts Wednesday morning at Lantana Golf Club in Texas. This will be the pre-qualifying stage, the start of a long road toward earning status on the Web.com Tour. He has entered as an amateur. By Golf Writer Doug Ferguson. SENT: 1400 words, photos.
