One of the lessons of football as the great educator in our society is to take the bull by the horns, so to speak. And so Jackie Sherrill goes from campus to campus leaving behind his trail of dirty laundry and is welcomed at the next institution as a great educator. He can teach the brutality with the best of them, all bloody-handed and proud. As a visual aid to his players, he had a young bull castrated at practice before Mississippi State's game with the Texas Longhorns.

TENNESSEE 24, MISSISSIPPI ST. 14 * Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin's game in the Southeastern Conference championship was a little bit like his season, his first at the helm after Peyton Manning graduated.

Maybe for Dontae' Jones, these things do not seem particularly impossible, but he is the only living man known to have performed either one: Sixteen days ago, the light-hearted, bubble-eyed Mississippi State junior forward almost single-handedly ran and gunned down the running, gunning Kentucky Wildcats with a live-wire 28-point performance in the Southeastern Conference tournament title game, triggering the Bulldogs' mad rush to the Southeast Regional berth in the Final Four.

Tears do not come easily for Jackie Sherrill. If anything, they are a last resort, a reluctant concession, a luxury Sherrill rarely allows himself. But on Oct. 5, with about 2,000 mourners squeezed into Mississippi State University's aging Lee Hall auditorium, Sherrill's eyes betrayed him. He wept. Like a baby. Two days earlier, Sherrill had walked into his office shortly before 7 a.m.
