Glen Mason is out, but then he was never in. Gary Barnett has never been in, but he might not yet be out. And Howard Schnellenberger isn't about to get in. In other words, despite a day of movement and speculation in college football, nothing has changed at UCLA, where Bruin Athletic Director Peter Dalis continues his search for a successor to Terry Donahue, who is leaving as football coach after the Aloha Bowl on Christmas Day.

I would like to suggest three candidates who would return USC football to glory: John Robinson. His record at USC speaks for itself. Johnny Majors. The man who revitalized programs at Pittsburgh and Tennessee is available. Howard Schnellenberger. He created the juggernaut at Miami and, given time, will do the same at Louisville.

Ron Cooper, who guided Eastern Michigan's football program the last two years, was hired as Louisville's new coach Thursday. Cooper replaces Howard Schnellenberger, who resigned earlier this month to go to Oklahoma. Cooper, one of five black Division I-A head football coaches, was an assistant at Notre Dame for two years before taking over at Eastern Michigan. At Eastern Michigan, Cooper compiled records of 4-7 his first year and 5-6 this past season.

Howard Schnellenberger is a good enough football coach to know a talented team when he sees one, especially one he partially created. "It was obvious we were beaten by a much superior team," said the Louisville coach after the team he used to coach, Miami (Fla.), waltzed to a 45-7 victory Saturday night. Vinny Testaverde threw for 295 yards and three touchdowns, completing 13 of 21 passes, as 15th-ranked Miami improved to 6-1, while Louisville fell to 1-7 in Schnellenberger's first year.

Oklahoma turned to a builder of football programs to return the Sooners to national prominence, hiring Howard Schnellenberger to replace Gary Gibbs on Friday. In five years, Schnellenberger led Miami from the brink of extinction to a national title. In 10 years at Louisville, he won nearly half his games and took the Cardinals to two bowl games. That was a program that in the decade before his arrival had only two winning seasons. His college record is 96-71-2.

Howard Schnellenberger believes he should be allowed one losing season while rebuilding the University of Louisville's football program. He will probably get it. Midway through his first year, he already has endured his worst loss as a college coach and watched the Cardinals give up more than 600 yards in two games. He sours when pressed on the importance of a winning record, but he also notes that it takes time to craft a competitive team.

The problem with chiseling a New Year's Day bowl matchup into stone is that sometimes you need an eraser. No one knows this better than the frazzled folks at the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, Ariz., where plans for a Florida State vs. Notre Dame potential national championship game, so firm a few weeks ago, now appear in jeopardy. The troublemaker is No. 1-ranked Florida State.

Memo to those hoping to ask East Carolina Coach Bill Lewis about the NCAA's flagrant taunting rule: Don't. Lewis is still a bit steamed about a 15-yard penalty called on one of his players for allegedly making an obscene gesture after East Carolina's recovery of an onside kick against Illinois last Saturday. According to a statement issued by Lewis, the officials simply blew the crucial call.

Bill Trout is in the tomato business now. After all, there's only so much a man can take and Trout took and saw it all as an assistant coach with Howard Schnellenberger's first University of Louisville football team, a Tinkertoy program if there ever was one, in 1985. One day, while awaiting the arrival of some prospective recruits, Trout glanced out his office window in time to see a herd of prize cattle amble past the Cardinal football building.

He'll always be remembered for pulling off the "Miracle of Miami," but Louisville coach Howard Schnellenberger wants to leave a more indelible legacy to college football. "I want to win a second national championship at a school that never thought of winning a national championship," Schnellenberger said. "That's something no coach has ever done." If anyone can do it, it's Schnellenberger.
