Bill Norton abandoned his usual perch in the press box Saturday and took up a position along the sidelines at West Los Angeles College in an effort to inject some emotion into his team. Pierce's excitable football coach not only fired up his charges, he apparently fired an assistant coach during an emotion- and action-packed Western State Conference South Division game won by Pierce, 31-29. The Brahmas had lost two consecutive games and were in danger of dropping out of the division race.

Hammer is hammering away at Garth Brooks but Brooks' "Ropin' the Wind" still leads the Billboard magazine pop album chart by a country mile, substantially outselling Hammer's second-ranked "Too Legit to Quit." Hammer may reach the top yet. His single, "2 Legit 2 Quit," rising rapidly on the pop singles chart (No. 19), may significantly boost album sales. Brooks has two Top 10 albums again. His "No Fences" moved up three notches to No. 9.

A convicted armed robber, accused of fleeing the state while on parole, was captured as he hid in an upstairs closet of a relative's Oxnard home, authorities said. Members of the Oxnard Police Department, FBI and state parole office took Michael Anthony Black, 26, of Oxnard into custody Thursday night without incident, said Gary Auer, FBI supervising agent for Ventura. FBI surveillance had determined earlier in the evening that the fleeing felon was at the relative's house, he said.

Mike Price is low key when he talks about Ryan Leaf, like a father who doesn't want to bore the lodge meeting with exploits of his son, but still wants the brethren to know that the kid is special. "He really has progressed quite well," said Price, the Washington State football coach. "He's becoming a better quarterback, technique-wise. His accuracy in passing is getting better. . . . He's just real good underneath the center." Bob Toledo suffers no such inhibitions.

Those closely cropped bobs and shags may be the hallmark of the carefree waif look, but they are anything but carefree if your hair is too straight, curly or limp. To make these new 'dos work for a variety of hair types, stylists are rediscovering the hair-shaping benefits of that barber shop staple: the straight-edge razor. "By removing excess bulk, a razor cut gives your hair more body. It also gives the hair mobility, because it doesn't blunt the ends like a scissor cut does.

Ryan Leaf, mentioned often as a Heisman Trophy contender, played like one and then looked like one on Saturday at Pullman, Wash. Seconds after leading No. 14 Washington State to a 38-28 victory over Stanford, Leaf drew a huge response from the record crowd by dropping into the pose of the familiar statue given to the best player in college football. "It was instantaneous," Leaf said after the victory that kept the Cougars in contention for their first Rose Bowl since 1931.

The secret of Michigan's season-long defensive superiority is out. It's not the unit's aggressiveness that has made it the country's best, or the athleticism and superb instincts of Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson. It's the defensive players' ritual of convening in a darkened meeting room two days before each game to join hands and recite from memory a poem titled, "The Law of the Jungle." Don't knock it. The Wolverine defense gave up only 8.9 points and 206.9 yards a game.

There were more flags than at the United Nations. There was a malfunctioning scoreboard that kept going blank. There was even a zany two-point conversion. And, oh yes, there was a football game in there somewhere. The outcome was a victory for Valley College over West L.A., 27-8, in a Western State Conference South Division game Saturday afternoon.
