As the compliments were being slung back and forth in the ritual of building up a football game, Tennessee Coach Johnny Majors said of the UCLA secondary: "They've got guys who can run like a bunch of deer, and they're in a bad mood when they get there." Maybe so. But the question going into UCLA's nationally televised game at Tennessee Saturday is this: Can a bunch of deer run fast enough to catch the Tennessee receivers?

The guy with the big belly, no hair and Jayhawk tattoo made it, but the Rams cut 13 players, among them newly acquired wide receiver Sam Graddy and tight end Damone Johnson. Keith Loneker, a longshot rookie free-agent guard from Kansas who was a quivering 346 pounds at the outset of training camp, emerged Monday as this year's happy ending story after surviving the final cut to 47. "I thought I was going to get cut today," Loneker said.

Do any of these names mean anything to you? Ralph Metcalfe? Thane Baker? Enrique Figuerola? Lennox Miller? Robert Taylor? Silvio Leonard? No? Then, you probably never heard of Sam Graddy, either. Like all of the above, Sam Graddy could have been a historical figure. They all came within inches of it. They all finished second in the Olympic 100-meter dash. They are living proof of the wisdom of the British yachting skipper who brought news to Queen Victoria of the U.S.

Wide receiver Sam Graddy suffered a broken right arm in the fourth quarter of the game at Kansas City on Monday night. Graddy had caught two passes for 46 yards against the Chiefs. Eric Dickerson has now lost the last 15 games in which he has played, dating to his days with the Indianapolis Colts. . . . Ronnie Lott made his 60th interception on the last play of the first half. . . .

For 75 meters, he led Carl Lewis in the 100 at the '84 Olympics. He beat Ben Johnson. He won the silver medal. Then, he won his gold medal when he led off the relay team that set the only world track record of the Los Angeles Olympics. If no one knew his name, it was because Carl Lewis towered over the Los Angeles Olympics with his four gold medals.

One of the notable aspects of Carl Lewis' distinguished athletic career has been his consistent excellence as a sprinter. World-class sprinters often disappear as fast as they run. For example, what has happened to Calvin Smith and Sam Graddy? They were members of a world record-breaking 400-meter relay team last August at the Olympic Games, but they're also-rans now. Smith is the world record-holder in the 100 meters at 9.93 seconds, a mark he achieved in 1983.

Sam Graddy is probably out for the season with a broken arm he suffered at Kansas City Monday night. He had surgery Tuesday. Tim Brown is expected to play Sunday against the New York Giants after sitting out the Chiefs' game because of a groin injury. Summing up the Raiders' 0-4 start is the take-away, give-away chart on fumbles and interceptions. The Raiders rank last in the league at minus-11. The Raider have forced four turnovers, but have turned the ball over 15 times. . . .
