Not long ago, Chapman University was the kid snoozing in the lecture hall, unmotivated and without prospects. If anyone outside Orange County had heard of Chapman, it was usually because of its World Campus Afloat, a cruise ship that used to take students on semester-long trips. But the ship was let go in the 1970s to help pay debts.

College basketball gets its first big matchup of the season Friday evening when national powers Connecticut and Michigan State play at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. It's the first regular-season game to be played by college teams in Europe and appropriately leads into the Veterans Day weekend at one of the most important military installations the U.S. has overseas. Ramstein, which is home to the U.S. Air Force's 86th Air Wing, also serves as a NATO command center. The No. 14-ranked Spartans and unranked Huskies will play in a converted hangar before 3,000 troops.

The city's first high school and college, St. Vincent's College, which became Loyola Marymount University, has hopscotched around Los Angeles, occupying six sites in 130 years. It may have been the city's first glimmer of its ecumenical future: The wife of a rabbi raised money for a Catholic college in an age when relations between the two creeds were chilly. The post-Civil War era saw widespread religious prejudice in America.

Robert Woods sticks a hand in front of Marqise Lee's face. He yanks on his shoulder pads, pushes him from behind. With Coach Lane Kiffin regularly opining that Lee will be the greatest receiver in USC history, Woods' post-practice actions might hint at frustration boiling over. Instead, he's helping his younger teammate improve, offering game-style distractions during a passing drill. "That's where the leadership comes out," Lee says. Woods and Lee could be on track to set a new college football standard for receiver tandems.

If history is the great teacher, and if someone were to look back at it for insight on Saturday's San Diego State-Brigham Young game for the Western Athletic Conference championship, that person would find . . . Not much of a trend. SDSU and BYU have played twice for the WAC championship. Those situations were identical to the one this week. Both games were in San Diego. And both games were the last conference games of the season.

Don James, the 60-year-old Washington football coach who resigned Sunday, bowed out after achieving one of the great coaching records of modern American football. His 178 victories was eighth on the list of active coaches, and only Bear Bryant, Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden have won more bowl games. While it was widely expected that James' program would be penalized by the Pacific 10 Conference, there was good reason for the shocked reaction Sunday in Seattle to James' resignation.
