Default anti-cramp (hydration?) foods

What I always heard from football coaches growing up was that bananas are the go-to food to prevent cramping. I now know that a lot of information I received from coaches may not have been the best advice, so I'm just trying to clarify this one. Are bananas good because of the potassium and manganese? And if so are there any other foods that provide a good amount of these minerals? Any quick recommendations or links for more information on cramping in general would be much appreciated.

Also, I haven't been keeping track of my water intake, and I'm sure the South Carolina humidity isn't helping my situation at all. But I'm pretty sure that cramping isn't prevented just by an increase in water.

Oh and I could deal with side stitches, but these are calf cramps. Makes it pretty hard to keep running!
