Ten years ago, a spunky sprite with a 1,000-watt smile and a girl-next-door name, Mary Lou Retton, vaulted from the Los Angeles Olympics across television screens into the homes of millions of Americans who fell in love with her. Sweet 16, 4-feet-9, a red-white-and-blue, stars-and-stripes ball spinning through the air, she made an entire country cheer on Aug. 3, 1984, when she landed firmly on her feet and flung up her arms, absolutely sure of a perfect 10 that gave her the first U.S.

Disco music and movies are warmly embraced these days as part of pop culture nostalgia. The era, which began in the mid-'70s, encouraged a whole generation to dance and party — often to excess.

Gymnast Mary Lou Retton, an Olympic gold medal winner, and former Texas quarterback Shannon Kelley are engaged to be married. Kelley said the two have been engaged since February. "Right now I've got 12 hours left this summer to graduate. I want to graduate and have a job before we get married," Kelley said. "We'll probably get married next spring or summer." Retton won a gold medal in the all-around competition at the 1984 Olympics at Los Angeles. Kelley finished his eligibility with the Longhorns football team last season.

Mary Lou Retton smiled and the room seemed to light up. Five years after she captured the hearts of the country in the Los Angeles Olympics, Retton has lost little of the luster that for two weeks in 1984 made her America's sweetheart. All grown up now, she is a wisp of a woman, well under 5 feet tall, less than 100 pounds, about as big as a minute. But that smile, oh that smile. Retton has plenty to grin about these days.

For the media's benefit, Notre Dame Coach Lou Holtz likes to conduct a weep-in during the week before facing a clearly inferior opponent. Just call him the Voice of the Golden Doom. This week, as his team prepared to play USC, Holtz chose to reflect on the terrible toll coaching the Irish takes on a man. Judge for yourself whether he isn't singing the same old song. Invoking one of his predecessors, Holtz said: "Frank Leahy was here three years and went to war.

Kendall Trainor, who missed a field goal and extra-point try in the first half, kicked three second-half field goals Saturday night to provide the margin of victory in Arkansas' 21-13 victory over Mississippi at Little Rock. Trainor, only 1 of 3 on field goal tries this season after suffering a pulled muscle in his kicking leg, missed an extra point and a 21-yard field-goal try in the first half but was good from 31, 38 and 43 yards in the second half.

Although Texas A&M accumulated more first downs, more rushing yards, and more passing yards than Oklahoma State Saturday night at Stillwater, Okla., the Aggies also committed 5 turnovers (2 fumbles, 3 interceptions) which led to 24 Oklahoma State points. The result: A 52-15 victory for Oklahoma State. The turnover-free Cowboys scored on each of their first 6 possessions before their first punt, which came after they had posted a 38-7 lead with 90 seconds left in the first half.
