Either John Daniels is just modest, he's lying or he's really going to be unhittable when he gets comfortable on the mound. Daniels, a JetHawk right-handed reliever, pitched three more innings Monday without allowing an earned run, giving him 20 1/3 innings with an 0.00 earned-run average. Still, Daniels said he's not pitching as well as he can. "Actually, I don't feel that great," he said. "I'm walking guys [seven] and I never walk guys." That aside, Daniels has done little wrong.

Lowlights, dark nights and weird sights of Football, 1994, as culled from the Dead Season Scrolls: The Colleges --Cat Got Your . . . What? The University of Kentucky announced it would alter its official Wildcat logo after complaints that the animal's rolled tongue resembled a penis. --They Also Had to Listen to Barry Manilow: Florida State put its marching band on probation for three years after revelations that new members had been blindfolded and forced to drink alcohol during hazing rituals.

Washington running back Napoleon Kaufman and USC tackle Tony Boselli were named to the All-Pacific 10 Conference team for the third season in a row, and Oregon's Rose Bowl-bound Danny O'Neil beat out Stanford's Steve Stenstrom for the quarterback spot on the first unit, announced Monday. O'Neil's 20 passing touchdowns with only seven interceptions in leading the Ducks to Pasadena apparently impressed Pac-10 coaches more than Stenstrom's leadership in total offense.

If Cal State Fullerton was to have any chance of staying close to No. 19 Georgia here Saturday, the Titans had to play error-free football. Fullerton fumbled 13 times and lost five, which helped set up three touchdowns, and the Bulldogs routed the Titans, 56-0. Quarterback Trendell Williams, the key man in the Titans' triple-option offense, certainly did his share, losing three fumbles. "It was disappointing," he said. "We blew our chance here."

Steve Spurrier returns to a college sideline tonight at Columbia, S.C., for the first time in four seasons when he leads South Carolina against Central Florida, loser of 15 consecutive games. When Spurrier last coached a college game, his Florida Gators routed Maryland, 56-23, in the 2002 Orange Bowl. Then it was off to the NFL for two disappointing seasons with the Washington Redskins.

No. 13-ranked Virginia's top-rated rushing defense had given up only 56 yards a game, but North Carolina State freshman Tremayne Stephens rushed for 133 yards, including 84 on a touchdown run that rallied the Wolfpack to a 30-27 victory Friday at Charlottesville, Va. The fourth-quarter touchdown by Stephens, the first rusher this year to gain 100 yards against Virginia, capped a wild game that further clouded the Atlantic Coast Conference's confusing bowl picture.

Florida shut down Garrison Hearst and denied seventh-ranked Georgia the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title. Then the Gators turned on the Georgia fans. Saturday's 26-24 victory was the third in a row in the neutral-site series for the No. 20 Gators, and it left a bitter taste in the mouth of Hearst for reasons other than Florida's holding him to 41 yards rushing.

What: "TD: Dreams in Motion." Price: $23 (Harper Collins Publishers, 204 pages). When I first picked up this book, I thought "This can't be very interesting. Terrell Davis hasn't been in the league long enough to have a book full of memories." I was half-right. Davis, in his fourth NFL season, doesn't describe an amazing compilation of football experiences. But he does show effectively what he went through to get from Pop Warner to the NFL.

The Athens, Ga., media had a field day with Cal State Fullerton, running front-page cartoons about the school's football team, ridiculing it with one-liners and poking fun at Georgia for even bothering to schedule such an unworthy opponent. But the Titans had a laugh, if not the last one, giving Georgia all it could handle Saturday before losing, 27-14, before 76,117 in Sanford Stadium.

Freshman kicker Jeff Hall made a 34-yard field goal with 10 seconds left to lift eighth-ranked Tennessee to a 30-27 Southeastern Conference victory over Georgia on Saturday night. Any nerves, Jeff? "Fortunately," he said, "my mind was just blank. I wasn't thinking about anything." There was otherwise plenty to watch and think about as the Bulldogs and Volunteers raced up and down the field, piling up 932 yards in a back-and-forth struggle.
