This game is not for the Western Athletic Conference championship or a bid to the Independence Bowl. It does not come wrapped in hopes and dreams. This one is about pride. San Diego State plays host to Texas El Paso at 7:05 tonight in San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium after a roller-coaster season and a heady week of bowl talk.

There is a buzz emanating from Old Town that has nothing to do with limes and Mexican beer. After years of procedure penalties and path interference, San Diego State appears to be making another run at big-time college football. Season ticket sales are up 10% with projected revenue of $3 million for fiscal 2006-07 as the school anticipates a crowd of 40,000 for its home opener Thursday against Texas El Paso.

Al Luginbill, San Diego State football coach, appeared almost insulted to be answering questions Sunday about the status of quarterback Cree Morris. Yes, the same Cree Morris who completed two of 10 passes in the second half and one of six in the fourth quarter of the Aztecs' 21-20 loss Saturday at Air Force. "He's not the reason we lost the football game," Luginbill said. "He's part of it."

The discussion at Montezuma Hall in Aztec Center was about Monty Montezuma. It was intense. The hottest topic this term at San Diego State University is not the presidential election or some civic or academic matter. The issue that has the student newspaper and Student Council abuzz is controversy over the future of the sports mascot.

Doug Scovil, who coached the San Diego State football team from 1981 to 1985 and was quarterback coach for the Philadelphia Eagles, died Saturday of a heart attack at Veterans Stadium. Scovil, 62, apparently had just finished his daily workout with a stationary bike ride and had taken a few steps when he fell to the floor in the team's training room, the Eagles said.

San Diego State football Coach Denny Stolz will have part of his salary withheld every year as an incentive to keep his program free of NCAA sanctions. Athletic Director Fred Miller said that the arrangement was one of the conditions presented to all applicants interviewed for the job. The agreement calls for the placing of $10,000 in wages in a bank account, where it will collect interest and will be turned over to Stolz at the end of every year, unless the Aztecs run afoul of the NCAA.

Charges were not filed against three San Diego State football players and a university student who were wanted for investigation of sexual assault. Azzahir Ali Hakim, Lonny Rochad Mitchell, Tyrone Curtis Evans and Damon Carter will be released from custody, according to Gayle Falkenthal, a spokeswoman for the San Diego District Attorney's office, who said their $1-million bail would be exonerated. The evidence in question concerned DNA and the investigation will continue. . . .

When it comes to football, San Diego State is no Michigan or Notre Dame or Alabama or Miami. In fact, it was reminded of that last November . . . by Miami, 63-17. However, as Week 1 of the 1993 season approaches, the Aztecs are being depicted as monsters beyond the dimensions of Michael Crichton's imagination. It's as if the Cal State Northridge Matadors are visiting Jurassic Park rather than San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium on Saturday night.

Well, folks, this is it. This little spot in this big newspaper goes the way of the Edsel, Air California, Jimmy Hoffa, the dinosaur and dairy farms in Mission Valley. Poof. Here today, gone tomorrow. I worry about things like this. No, not the disappearance of my private and yet public niche, I don't worry about that. I accept that as something that happens in life, though the feeling is a bit empty. If what I have done was a mere stitch in the tapestry of a few other lives, that was good.

It's getting to where San Diego State football Coach Al Luginbill might be forced to scratch the intrasquad scrimmages he prefers each Friday during spring practice. Injuries, the graduation of two key starters and more injuries on the offensive line might necessitate such action before too long. On Friday, sophomore tackle Louie Zumstein and junior guard Mark Koenig joined among others, Tony Nichols (shoulder) and Carlson Leomiti (weight problem), on the spring disabled list.

The subject was spring football, and that sick, gnawing feeling in the room wasn't the thought of 15 practices without any games. No. The quiet in the room as San Diego State football Coach Al Luginbill talked during a recent team meeting was a leftover sense of melancholy from the Aztecs' 52-52 tie with Brigham Young last November. "They know what they had in their hands and they know what they let get away," Luginbill said. "I'd like to be in that situation again and see what happens."

Running back Daryl Crawford has quit the San Diego State football team, Coach Al Luginbill said Wednesday. Crawford, who led San Diego County in rushing as a senior at Montgomery High School in 1985, never played in a game at SDSU. His father, Charles, said his son left the team late last week because he did not believe he would get a chance to play. Crawford, a senior, is the 21st scholarship player to quit since Luginbill took over as coach last November.

The honors continued to arrive Wednesday at San Diego State when Aztec Coach Al Luginbill was named Western Athletic Conference coach of the year and running back Marshall Faulk was named freshman of the year. But before his award had a chance to settle in, Luginbill already was answering questions relating to the Arizona State job. The Sun Devils on Wednesday fired Coach Larry Marmie after a 6-5 season.
