Sam Henderson lives two lives--one as a scientist in the 1990s, and the other, vicariously, as a 13th-Century cliff dweller. He knows as much as anyone about the Sinagua (Sin-a-wa), the prehistoric Indians who occupied these cliffs from AD 1125 to 1250. Henderson, 47, is an archeologist and superintendent of Walnut Canyon National Monument.

Every spring for centuries, Hopis practicing their tribal religion have gathered fledgling golden eagles from nests perched on the red-hued cliffs of what is now northeastern Arizona. Then officials at Wupatki National Monument blocked a Hopi eagle-gathering pilgrimage last year and once again thrust an American Indian tribe reluctant to discuss its traditional religion into a high-profile conflict with the federal government.

After a 34-14 victory over Ole Miss, Tennessee Coach Johnny Majors couldn't help but look forward to the next obstacle to a trip to the Sugar Bowl for his 18th-ranked Volunteers. "When you play Kentucky, you better be ready to go to war," Majors said of the Volunteers' next opponent. While Tennessee was beating Mississippi at Knoxville, Tenn., Saturday, Kentucky lost to 11th-ranked Florida, 15-13.

Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt favors a policy change that would allow members of the Hopi tribe to capture golden eaglets from a national monument in Northern Arizona, a move that critics fear could open the door to hunting in national parks. The issue at the Wupatki National Monument near Flagstaff, Ariz., has been building since summer, when the Hopi requested permission to take eaglets for use in a religious ceremony.

Forget the numbers and the averages and the records that supposedly gauge a football crowd. Before a football stadium can be classified as a pit, the temperament of the fans must be considered. Not only does a pit come packed with fans--always capacity, no matter what the number--those fans have to be willing to get into the action of the game. They come early. They come to stand up and make a lot of noise. They come to sing and stomp their feet. They come to intimidate and enjoy it.

Penn State didn't want it. Iowa didn't want it. Miami didn't want it. Volunteers for No. 1? No, thank y'all just the same, Johnny Majors drawled after the team he coaches did a number on Miami, 35-7, in a Tennessee waltz Wednesday night at the Sugar Bowl. "I'm not campaignin' for No. 1," Majors said. But, like his team, it only took him a few minutes to get rolling.
