James Street Standout University of Texas quarterback James Street, 65, a former University of Texas quarterback who took over the Longhorns' wishbone offense and led them to the 1969 national championship, died Monday at his home in Austin, Texas, according to his longtime friend and business partner Bill Hall. The cause has not been determined. Street started the 1968 season as a backup but was made the starter after two games. He led Texas to 20 consecutive victories, including the "Game of the Century" - a come-from-behind, 15-14 victory by the top-ranked Longhorns over No. 2 Arkansas to cap the 1969 regular season.

Gene Bartow, the successor to John Wooden as UCLA basketball coach who became the architect of a new and successful athletics program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, died Tuesday evening. He was 81. Bartow, who was diagnosed with stomach cancer two years ago, died at his Birmingham home, according to a university spokesman. Despite starting the athletics program at Alabama Birmingham and establishing the basketball program as nationally competitive, Bartow probably will be most remembered in Los Angeles as the man who replaced arguably the best coach in college basketball history and unarguably the most beloved and respected coach in this city's sports history when in 1975 he took over UCLA's program after Wooden's retirement.
