As anyone can see, it's a strange season. The Rams rank 27th running the football this year, the Raiders are favored over the Buffalo Bills at the Coliseum Sunday, and the New England Patriots have won four games. The Patriots? Are they turning it around already? Well, not exactly. They have also lost nine. But with a first down here or a touchdown there, with a field goal here or a turnover there, the team that finished 1-15 last season could be 9-4 today.

Take the most incompetent lame-brains you've ever met and hire them to run the Patriots. They couldn't make a bigger mess of it than the current collection of empty suits. Even if he turns out to be Sam the Sham, Sam Jankovich enters a no-lose situation. He could make Irving Fryar head coach and put Marla Maples in charge of player personnel and still finish better than 1-15. But why hire Jankovich?

With Sam Jankovich presiding as athletic director in the 1980s, Miami became a national football power, resurrected its men's basketball team and quadrupled its athletics budget. Jankovich, 64, seeks to achieve more modest goals as interim athletic director at Cal State Northridge. However, he will not underestimate the difficulty in identifying solutions for a long-troubled program. "I'm on a fact-finding mission," he said. "There won't be abrupt changes and decisions.

As an outstanding quarterback at USC in the early 1970s, Pat Haden did what it took to get the job done. He carried that trait into the classroom, where he became a Rhodes Scholar, and into the NFL, where he became the Rams' quarterback, although he was considered too short by pro standards. Haden is in charge of an altogether different task today, one that is as challenging as any before.

The history of big-time college football, since its beginnings in the 1880s, offers no phenomenon to compare with the recent rise of the University of Miami Hurricanes. Not much more than a decade ago, the Hurricanes, draining the university of more than $1 million each fall, were on the verge of petitioning the NCAA to drop them out of top-division football. This winter, with an 11-0 team, they're on the verge of winning an unprecedented fourth national championship in 10 years.
