Ronnie Lott, often called the heart and soul of the San Francisco 49ers defense, has offered to take a $200,000 pay cut to remain with the team. But his attorney, Leonard Armato, says the 49ers want an even deeper slice of the $1 million Lott is scheduled to receive this year. Lott, left off the 49ers' protected list and now a Plan B free agent, wants to play two more years and would like them to be with San Francisco.

Lindy Infante is the first Green Bay Packer coach since Vince Lombardi 30 years ago to be honored by the Associated Press as NFL coach of the year, but there the comparison ends, he says. Infante, who guided the Packers to a 10-6 finish and within a victory of the playoffs, said: "There will never be another Vince Lombardi. I'm just honored to be sitting in the seat he sat in and coaching in the city he coached in and coaching the team he made so famous."

Stan Sutton, who covers Indiana basketball for the Louisville Courier-Journal, has some ground rules for newcomers on questioning Coach Bob Knight. A sampling: --"Don't second-guess his strategy, lest the news conference end abruptly, before your peers have asked their questions. Any tough questions must come after all the others. --"Don't say, 'I thought.' . . . Knight could care less what you think. --"And above all, don't ask anything personal.

He watched calmly from the sidelines as his team struggled to become a contender, enduring four one-point wins, two agonizing instant replay reviews and countless comebacks. And when his Green Bay Packers had done all they could--finishing 10-6 for their best record since 1972--he watched on TV as Minnesota beat Cincinnati 29-21 to oust his team from the playoffs in the final minutes of the regular season. Through it all, Lindy Infante was the same--calm, methodical, confident and team-oriented.

Here's a little statistic for UCLA fans. Three former Bruin quarterbacks will be starting NFL games today. They are the Raiders' Jay Schroeder, Dallas' Troy Aikman and San Francisco's Steve Bono. Bono will be making his first real NFL start in the 49ers' game at New Orleans. He replaces Steve Young, who is sidelined for at least three weeks because of an injured ligament in his left knee.

Hot Weather Brings Out Bacteria Hot, sticky weather inspires the back-yard chef to barbecue some killer hamburgers. Literally. Salmonella and E. coli revel in uncooked meat and hot weather. Avoid a bacteria buffet by placing a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the meat. Temperature should reach 145 degrees to 160 degrees for roast and 170 degrees to 180 degrees for poultry. Hamburger should not be pink in the middle. You must brown ground meat all the way through.

Now, for some low-definition TV: Before immersing ourselves in Super Bowl XXXIII on Fox, let's review the various lowlights and oddball moments brought to your screen during the 1998 football season. Fortunately, TV Times--unlike the NFL--uses instant replay. WORST ANALYSIS: Before the New Year's Day game, CBS' Craig James declared that "Wisconsin is the worst team ever to play in the Rose Bowl." The Badgers then went on to defeat UCLA, 38-31, finishing with an 11-1 record.

* THROW THIS BACK: As part of the NFL's 75th anniversary celebration, this weekend's games will feature a venerable institution that has weathered all sorts of societal changes to remain an integral part of this league: The marketing scam. In what is being sold as "Throwbacks Weekend," every team in the league will wear uniforms from the past. Some will wear these uniforms again until every team has a chance to wear them in front of their home crowds. Think of the atmosphere!
