Once again the sports section has provided me with all the answers to my questions. In recent weeks I had wondered what the status of 1998 UCLA football center Shawn Stuart was. After reading your article on Kris Farris, along with the photo series of his changed appearance over the past year, I realized that Shawn Stuart actually "became" Kris Farris in a matter of a few months. With Farris's ability to change into different players, which NFL team wouldn't want to take him?! Or maybe someone needs a new eyeglass prescription in The Times photo department?

UCLA football is embracing a high-tech future. The Bruins unveiled a new gizmo Wednesday: the CoachComm Tempo, a system that includes two Led Zeppelin-ready speakers and that can run the clock and scoreboard, simulate crowd noise, play music and be used to amplify the instructions of coaches. "A lot of teams around the country are using this," Coach Jim Mora said. "Oregon uses it; Chip Kelly bought one when he went to [coach] Philadelphia. We talked to five or six coaches and they all said it would help practice efficiency.

This was a tough start, losing the first two games and facing a schedule that includes Houston and Texas. It was no problem in 1997. UCLA, with Cade McNown at quarterback, beat Texas, 66-3, to start a 20-game winning streak that included a 66-10 victory over Houston. "I remember that we had a lot to prove that season, not only to the critics, but to ourselves," McNown said. "We were coming off a 5-6 season and started the 1997 season 0-2. We need something fast.

Sophomore offensive tackle Kris Farris, 6 feet 9 and 295 pounds, is one of UCLA's rising young stars. "He's improved every game and he's not even close to what he could be," line coach Mark Weber said. Farris also is the person players and coaches consult about movies. He has made it clear he wants to become a screenwriter and film director. "I'm a big fan of [Steven] Spielberg," Farris said. "He's the one I want to be like." Farris already has a favorite for the Oscar race. " 'L.A.

Stacking up accolades as if they were defensive lineman, tackle Kris Farris, a preseason All-American by some, has been selected as one of the 12 semifinalists for the Lombardi Award. He was one of only three juniors so recognized, joining Andy Katzenmoyer of Ohio State and Jevon Hearse of Florida for the competition to decide the best lineman or linebacker in the country.

All-American tackle Kris Farris, the Outland Trophy winner as a junior, said Monday he is leaning toward returning for his senior season rather than opting for the NFL. Farris, who will contemplate his decision over the weekend and make an announcement Monday, has spoken with several pro scouts and personnel men in an attempt to gauge where he would be picked in the draft. One such set of talks last week resulted in the consensus that he would go late in the first round or early in the second.

The chips were stale, the soda was flat and all the air had been sucked from the room when Debbie Farris, mother of four, was asked how it felt Saturday watching her son wait for the phone to ring on NFL draft day. "I equate this with labor and delivery," she said standing near the kitchen table at 4:45 p.m., ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. blathering on television in the background about some other mother's son.

Kris Farris, the large Mission Viejo contribution to the NFL, sits in his rented condo in suburban Pittsburgh. His right foot is in a cast, his rookie season as a Pittsburgh Steeler on hold for a year, and even over the phone you can hear a hint of anger in his voice, maybe a touch of disgust, a pinch of cynicism. "I don't think I want to comment on that at all," Farris says. He is being asked about what he thinks of that whole handicapped parking scandal thing at his old stomping grounds, UCLA.

Kris Farris, UCLA's Outland Trophy-winning tackle, announced Wednesday he will bypass his senior season and enter the NFL draft. Farris, a fourth-year junior, said the decision came after six months of contemplation and that "I went over so many pros and cons, it was ridiculous." But in the end, he said, he had met his goals of winning the Outland and being named All-America and All-Pacific 10 Conference.

It's as predictable as the swallows returning to Capistrano. On Jan. 1 each year, hundreds, maybe thousands, of Midwesterners shovel snow from their driveways, retreat into their houses to watch the Rose Bowl game, see the sun rays reflecting off the San Gabriel Mountains and call for moving vans. This year, we might not have to wait until New Year's Day for the migration to begin. Consider: Sunday, when the temperature dropped to 28 in Madison, Wis.
