Hacksaw the Heisman. Split that baby down the middle and hand the halves to Miami teammates Ken Dorsey and Willis McGahee. That was the judicious opinion of more than one Hurricane player Saturday in the breathless aftermath of a 56-45 victory over Virginia Tech that leaves Miami four quarters away from a second consecutive national championship. The undefeated Hurricanes are headed for the Fiesta Bowl, where on Jan. 3 they will play undefeated Ohio State for the title.

A handgun charge against Clipper forward Chris Wilcox was dismissed Tuesday. The former Maryland standout was arrested in June after police found a gun in his car during a traffic stop. The discovery probably would not have been admissible in court, because Wilcox should have been allowed to leave the scene before the arrival of a canine unit that found the weapon, said Tim McCrone, Howard County state's attorney.

The 2005 NFL season isn't starting well for the teams that played for the championship last February. The latest misfortune came when Jerome McDougle, the former first-round pick who is supposed to start at defensive end for NFC champion Philadelphia, was shot in the stomach by robbers in Miami. He originally was listed as critical but later talked to police and walked in his room after surgery. Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko said his condition is good.
