Without the pictures, Johnny Bright's broken jaw probably would have been considered just another football injury. With fewer than eight minutes gone in the first quarter, and with the nation's leading ground gainer out of the Oct. 20, 1951 game, A&M--later to become Oklahoma State--erased an early deficit and rolled to victory over previously unbeaten Drake University. It was not until the next day that Bright's injury took on a more sinister cast.

Saturday's Virginia-North Carolina State game in Raleigh, N.C., could go a long way toward determining this year's Atlantic Coast Conference champion. But only a victory by the Wolfpack would realistically keep the ACC in the running for a bid to the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando. The ACC is in the second year of a four-year deal with the Citrus Bowl, a contract that stipulates that in years Nos.

Mike Leigh handed over maybe 25 pages of paper, bound together. "Here we are," he said. "Here's 'Naked.' This is what we worked from when shooting started." I'd asked to see a script of "Naked," the film that won Leigh the best director award at the Cannes Film Festival this year; its leading man David Thewlis was named best actor (Thewlis was also named best actor last week by the New York Film Critics Circle).

Pictures may be overrated as broad metaphors, the universes they encapsulate not always matching ones existing beyond the eye of the lens. Yet just try severing Dorothea Lange's influential photos of California migrant farm workers and their families during the Great Depression--their faces troubled, yet resolute--from that generation's terrible economic plight and its will to resist adversity and survive.

And this being Omaha at College World Series time--a.k.a. The Deep Breath Capital of the World--Nevin was faced with a pregame choice: Oxygen deprivation. Or potential victory deprivation. Nevin was really in no shape to play a College World Series game Friday evening.
