When the University of Connecticut hired its new head football coach last week, Notre Dame's Lou Holtz gave him his blessing and three pieces of advice: "Surround yourself with people who care about the end result. "Be yourself. Don't be me. "Don't call collect." Skip Holtz, who has served on his father's coaching staff for four seasons, the last two as offensive coordinator, is certain he can master the first two, especially the second. He knows not even one magic trick.

Six years after he chose family over career advancement, Skip Holtz is a head coach again. And he can't stop smiling. Holtz is working his way through a two-inch stack of phone messages and unpacking boxes, but his greatest challenge lies ahead: rebuilding the football program at East Carolina, a mid-major with a rabid fan base but only three wins in the last two seasons.

Any quarterback controversy the Oregon Ducks may have had is a dead issue, thanks to A.J. Feeley's record-setting performance in last week's season-opening loss at Michigan State.

Still, it was the most yards ever by an Oregon quarterback in his first start. Feeley, a junior, had battled sophomore Joey Harrington for the chance to succeed Akili Smith.
