Ray Perkins, hired to turn the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into the team of the 1990s, was fired Monday in his fourth season as coach of the losingest NFL franchise of the '80s. Oddly, Perkins' dismissal came the day after the 5-8 Buccaneers ended the six-game losing streak that proved his undoing. "The change is not because of Ray Perkins. It's strictly that we haven't had a winning season in four years. I'm not saying who's at fault," owner Hugh Culverhouse said.

Coach Ray Perkins has some questions about his No. 2 Alabama team, but Coach Charlie Bailey of Memphis State doesn't. "Alabama is one heck of a football team and they deserve to be No. 2 in the country," Bailey said after watching the Crimson Tide defeat his team, 37-0, Saturday. It was Alabama's first shutout since a 6-0 victory over Penn State in October, 1984.

What a difference a year makes. Steve DeBerg, the goat when he threw seven interceptions in Tampa Bay's 1986 season opener, returned to the Buccaneers' starting lineup a hero Sunday. The 11th-year pro passed for 333 yards and a team-record 5 touchdowns as the Buccaneers routed the Atlanta Falcons, 48-10, in Ray Perkins' debut as the Tampa Bay coach.

Who cares about the debate over the No. 1 college team? For most football fans, the main issue has been settled--mainly, who gets Floyd of Rosedale. It's Minnesota, of course. The trophy originated 55 years ago when the governors of Minnesota and Iowa wagered a real hog on the outcome of the Gopher-Hawkeye game. (As if the game itself isn't big enough.) Then, rather than pass poor Floyd back and forth every year, a bronze likeness of the blue-ribbon pig was created.
