Fifteen months ago, as the nation recoiled in horror from the massacre of 20 children and six adults by a mentally ill man armed with three semiautomatic weapons, there were firm proclamations that this time would be different. The violence at that Newtown, Conn., elementary school, it was said, would finally lead the nation to come together and embrace some reasonable gun control laws. Well, that didn't last long. If anything, the national gun frenzy, fueled by the irresponsible lobbyists at the National Rifle Assn., has intensified.

Cal State Fullerton, playing without starting point guard Andrea Thieme, lost to Georgia State, 82-72, in a nonconference women's basketball game Sunday at Fullerton. Thieme suffered a broken nose last week in practice and did not play Sunday, but she could return for Saturday's game at 12th-ranked UCLA. Kristina Naumovic started in place of Thieme and finished with a team-high 18 points and five assists for the Titans (1-2).

There has been a shake-up in the interchangeable sock-drawer positions of 20 through 25. Nebraska and Oklahoma State rejoin the static-cling cluster while the Huskies (Northern Illinois) and the Hokies (Virginia Tech) infiltrate the rankings for the first time this season. No. 6 Florida State used a 63-0 win over Maryland to leapfrog Louisville and Georgia. Sometimes piling it on counts. Researchers are checking to see whether No. 16 Washington is the first school to move up after a loss, and also whether Georgia is the first team to drop three spots after a victory.

Senior outside hitter Janae Henry had just nine kills and 13 digs, but both were team highs for the USC women's volleyball team as the Trojans cruised to a 15-2, 15-4, 15-3 victory over Georgia State in a Pacific Region first-round match at Lyon Center. USC (27-2) will face Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in tonight's second round at 6 p.m. San Luis Obispo defeated South Florida, 15-11, 13-15, 15-13, 15-12, in another first-round match.

UC Irvine's new run-and-gun offense fired an embarrassing blank in its debut Friday night. Lightly regarded Georgia State had little trouble with the Anteaters en route to a 109-84 victory in the first round of the Western Digital Freedom Bowl tournament. Georgia State will play Maryland in the championship game at 8 tonight. Irvine faces Texas Christian in the consolation game at 6.

Jerrod Mustaf, a 6-foot 10-inch freshman forward who acts as point guard for Maryland, showed some nice outside shooting to go with some sharp ballhandling Saturday night in the UC Irvine Bren Center. And, as it turned out, the Terrapins needed all the offense they could get to hang on for a 69-62 victory over Georgia State in the championship game of the Western Digital Freedom Bowl tournament.

Juan Dixon, Maryland's star guard, was eight years old when Len Bias died and Lefty Driesell was being run out of town. Shernard Long, Georgia State's star guard, was not interested in Driesell's ancient history at Maryland. It was 15 years ago when Driesell left the Terrapins. Put it in the history books and not on the basketball court. Maryland, the No. 3-seeded team, beat Driesell-coached Georgia State, the No. 11-seeded team, 79-60, Saturday in the second round of the NCAA West Regionals.

Byron Jenson scored a personal-best 18 points and Derek Noether scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Pepperdine breezed to a 79-60 first-round victory over the Georgia State Panthers Tuesday night at the Dr. Pepper Classic. Steve Guild scored 11 points in the first half and Noether added nine as the Waves (6-2) jumped to a 45-33 lead at the break. Pepperdine built the lead to 75-53 with 2:22 to play on Jenson's layup. The Panthers (3-5) never got closer than 14 points in the second half.

The score was so one-sided it looked like a paycheck game for homecoming. The winning school totaled 614 yards to the losing team's 234 and won the first-down battle, 33-9. So was this No.1 Alabama against winless Georgia State? Actually, it was No. 8 Florida State over No. 25 Maryland. The Seminoles' 63-0 win over the Terrapins in Tallahassee was the most coldblooded dissection of a turtle since your junior high biology class. The only thing missing was formaldehyde.

Stanford and Oregon continue to form a Pac-12 sandwich around Alabama after combining for 110 weekend points as the Crimson Tide held Ole Miss pointless. Oklahoma has moved up 12 spots since opening day in a rebuttal to Rankman's preseason evaluation. Notre Dame, one win from the Bowl Championship Series title last season, is out of the poll but can take the No. 22 away from Arizona State by putting a fork in the Sun Devils on Saturday. Maryland and Texas Tech were a combined 8-0 in the September instructional league and have earned call-ups to the 25-rankings roster.

The Ku Klux Klan's reputation may be dirty, but it apparently likes clean highways. After the Georgia Department of Transportation rejected a local KKK chapter's Adopt-A-Highway application this week amid outrage from social activists, the group's leader cried foul and sought the help of the American Civil Liberties Union. "We just want to clean up the doggone road," Harley Hanson, 34, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. (His official title: exalted cyclops of the Realm of Georgia.)

1: The Big Game. Stanford at California has huge BCS implications for the Cardinal, still looking to earn a major bowl bid with an 11-1 finish: Problem: Cal has won two straight in the rivalry and seven of the last eight. 2: Boise State needs a home win over Fresno State on Friday to set up a showdown at Nevada on Nov. 26. Fresno State had a late lead on Nevada on Saturday in Fresno before losing, 35-34. 3: Ohio State at Iowa was the preseason game of the year in the Big Ten, but the teams meet in Iowa City with a combined four defeats.

Unbuckling the mailbag: Question: Must say I find your weekly criticism of the SEC amusing. You actually mock Alabama for playing Georgia State while continually ranking Boise State No. 1, based on what? Is Boise State a good team? Who knows, they don't play anybody! Rick Davidson Los Feliz Answer: I know, I know. I'm hearing from SEC fans all over the country. It's getting so bad I may have to get a restraining order against Verne Lundquist.

Nothing left to say for Cal State Northridge, except, "Aloha." As in goodbye. Northridge ended an exhausting, eight-day road trip by going three and out in the Nike Festival at Hawaii, losing for the third time in as many games, 97-88, to Georgia State on Saturday night at Stan Sheriff Center. The Matadors (6-6), highly touted after an early season upset of UCLA, suddenly are struggling and searching for answers.

Boise State deserves blame for playing Tuesday, an inferiority complex time slot normally reserved for choir practice and the Sun Belt Conference. What national title contender (outside of tractor pull) has ever played on Tuesday? Boise State took care of Louisiana Tech, 49-20, but exposed itself to the type of critic who points out the facial blemishes on Miss USA. These are the same folks who start making parade plans when Alabama pulls away from Tennessee, but we're just happy to breathe the same air Auburn gets to breathe.

Be true to your school but please don't ditch class, or reality. Twenty-five major college schools remain undefeated, not all are equal, and only one is going to win this season's national title. In fact, the title might not go to any of the 25. A one-loss team ? say Iowa, which was brave enough to risk a nonconference game at Arizona ? might have the backbone to fight back. Know this: early season records and statistics in college football are only slightly less fraudulent than pro wrestling.
