Scott Covington, a sophomore quarterback from Dana Hills High, says he is seriously considering transferring from the University of Miami, according to published reports. "There's a lot of uncertainty about my future there," Covington said. "There's a lot of frustration. I was under a different impression on what was going on. The way it turned out wasn't what I was expecting." Covington said he hasn't talked to other schools and plans on being at Miami when classes begin next week.

Scott Covington's college career has been the kind of roller-coaster ride that would rival any amusement park. The Miami fifth-year senior (who already has his degree in business management) has survived a hernia and a punctured lung as well as the frustration of not playing much and wanting to transfer. Then came the Hurricanes' 8-3 season in 1998. There was the abyss of a 66-13 thrashing by Big East-rival Syracuse, followed by the high of upsetting previously unbeaten and third-ranked UCLA.

A University of Miami committee has refused to release quarterback Scott Covington from his scholarship, Mark Covington, his father, said Wednesday. Covington, a redshirt freshman who played at Dana Hills, announced in January that he wanted to leave the school, but Athletic Director Paul Dee had rejected his request for a release from his scholarship. Covington was informed Tuesday that a three-member athletic financial aid committee had turned down his appeal.

Miami hadn't defeated a top 25 team or come from behind in the fourth quarter to win since 1996. It did both Saturday. Scott Covington hit Daryl Jones with a three-yard touchdown pass with 1:37 left to give Miami a 34-31 victory over No. 13 West Virginia at Morgantown, W.Va. West Virginia (4-2, 1-1 Big East) drove to within long field-goal range for a chance to tie the score and send it to overtime but Jay Taylor's 53-yard attempt was wide left and short.

Scott Covington may have been the most-sacked high school quarterback in the Southland last season. In addition, he completed only 49% of his passes, and his team, Dana Hills, finished 1-9. But none of that meant much to many of the top college football coaches. Notre Dame, Alabama, Miami, Wisconsin and USC were among the schools that came calling, each hoping to convince the 18-year-old senior that their program was the best.

Backup quarterback Scott Covington says he's leaving Miami for another school, even though the university has denied his request for a release. "I've made up my mind," said Covington, a Dana Hills graduate. "I will not be back next season. I need to play, and I really don't see that happening here." The redshirt freshman is enrolled this semester and under scholarship, and he can't contact other Division I-A schools about transferring until Miami grants him a release.

He'll be with you shortly, the coach promises, but there remains one last mental toughness drill before morning football practice is complete at Dana Hills High. It's just the kind of exercise that puts a smile on the face of Scott Covington, a thinking man's player and the Dolphins' starting quarterback for the third consecutive season.

His frustration comes through resoundingly with each word, although Miami quarterback Scott Covington does his best to convince you otherwise. True, his career isn't turning out as he had hoped, he wishes his coaches were a little more talkative and the Hurricanes don't scare people much these days. That aside, everything is going just fine. "I'm happy I'm here," Covington said. "I'm not going to say that just because everything hasn't worked out perfectly that I shouldn't be here.

Miami's once-proud Hurricanes, owners of four national championships since 1983, hit rock bottom Saturday. No. 4 Florida State (4-0) handed Miami its worst loss since World War II, routing the Hurricanes, 47-0, at Tallahassee, Fla., as freshman Travis Minor scored two touchdowns and Thad Busby passed for two. "Miami is down right now," Florida State Coach Bobby Bowden said. "They just do not have the maturity and depth they usually have. We had a lot of advantages."

Monday's earthquake left high school athletic administrators scrambling, wondering when and if practices and games will be able to return to a normal schedule. Because Monday was a holiday and school was not in session, nothing was immediately affected. But administrators were certain many schools would have to cancel scheduled events until all facilities are deemed safe.
