A year ago Thursday, a very good coach, Paul Westphal, was dismissed by the NBA's Phoenix Suns. He was in his fourth season. In three full 82-game seasons, Westphal's teams averaged--averaged, mind you--59 wins. Danny Ainge was running the Suns a few nights ago, when Robert Horry committed a flagrant-towel violation. Horry threw one in his coach's face. "These players today," Westphal says, "they're really feeling their oats."

After two weeks of the 1994 football season, some are beginning to wonder what has happened to all those great Pacific 10 Conference quarterbacks.

Maureen LeCocq is five years away from competing at the college level, but she is already commanding the attention of one of the top collegiate coaches in the country. Arizona Coach Mike Candrea had trouble believing his eyes at his softball camp last December in Tucson. There on the pitching rubber stood LeCocq, throwing rise balls at speeds in the mid- to high 50s. The aftershock came moments later.

There seems to be a new, improved football era dawning at Bolsa Grande High. No, the Matadors didn't win their nonleague season opener against Villa Park Thursday night. They lost, 7-0, in front of 1,200 at El Modena High. But they managed to stay in the game until the final gun, and that in itself is nearly a monumental achievement for a team that last season wasn't altogether the doormat of the Garden Grove League--at 3-7--but pretty close to it.

The new news is that a few years back Carol Burnett got there first . . . all because of an unusual agreement worked out between one of her producers and a retired advertising executive. It wasn't exactly what Turner and Whittle have in mind but it did produce one surprising benefit.
