Notre Dame tailback Reggie Brooks hated football when he was a kid. "He used to hide under his bed when it was time to go to football practice," said Brooks' mother, Algerita. "We went through this every summer with him, and so I told him, 'Reggie, if you don't want to play football, you don't have to.' "After a year of playing I said, 'Reggie, if you still don't like football, you don't have to play,' and he said, 'I do like football.'

The New York Jets have now failed to score a touchdown in 14 quarters, but on Saturday they faced an offense even more inept than theirs. The result was a 3-0 victory over the Washington Redskins, who never got inside the Jets' 30-yard line. The only score of the game was Cary Blanchard's 45-yard field goal late in the first quarter on the Jets' first possession. "A real offensive outburst, right?" Jet Coach Bruce Coslet said.

On his last trip to Southern California, Reggie Brooks enjoyed that traditional victory meal of bananas and soda that awaited the flu-stricken Notre Dame tailback in the locker room after the Irish had beaten USC. Brooks, a rookie with the Washington Redskins, returns to the Southland this weekend for a game against the Rams and rookie tailback Jerome Bettis, his former Irish teammate.

I'm praying for the day that ESPN's Lee Corso gets back into coaching so I won't have to be further subjected to his ignorant commentary on the Heisman Trophy race. First, he personally created Garrison Hearst's pseudo-candidacy, then he mobilized the Gino Torretta bandwagon. Then, this past Saturday, he felt compelled to throw the token Notre Dame player (Reggie Brooks) into the fold. Corso summed up his ignorance after Saturday's games by leaving the most deserving candidate (Marshall Faulk)

On an evening when his stomach malfunctioned, but his legs didn't, a queasy Reggie Brooks made his own belated run at a Heisman Trophy. Three touchdowns and 227 rushing yards later, he wobbled to the Notre Dame locker room and dined on that traditional victory meal enjoyed by flu-ridden record breakers everywhere: bananas and soda. What he really deserved was bed rest and an invitation to the Heisman awards ceremony early next month.

With Bill Parcells' future at stake, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue presided Tuesday in a conference call in which the coach and the New England Patriots aired their contract differences. The dispute involves a provision added to the contract in 1996, which the team claims gives it the exclusive right to employ Parcells for 1997. Parcells claims other parts of the contract entitle him to leave the Patriots and coach another NFL team next season. Tagliabue said he would rule as early as today.

It isn't unusual for a broadcast company to hire an unabashed booster to announce a local team. But when the play-by-play man, Tom Kelly, is so subjective as to make the former USC coach and color commentator seem the voice of reasoned restraint, Prime Ticket fumbles its professional obligation. In addition to sounding more resentful of Reggie Brooks than admiring his exciting, remarkable game, Kelly constantly whined about the refereeing, which Prime Ticket's own replays (and John Robinson's indications)
