UCLA athletic department officials have told the University of California Board of Regents they anticipate generating about $17.6 million in revenues this year from television, multi-media, apparel and other products. A chunk of that will be spent on football coaches, according to requests made to the board by UCLA Chancellor Gene Block in January and March.

UCLA's defense had Fresno State quarterback Eric Buechele seeing stars. Buechele was knocked out cold on the first play of the second quarter when he was sacked by UCLA inside linebacker Doug Kline in the Bruins' 17-0 win over Fresno State Saturday at the Rose Bowl. Buechele, who was sacked five times for minus 35 yards, including four times in the first quarter, had to leave the game after Kline slammed him to the turf, and he didn't return.

Tyler Ebell raised his left sleeve to reveal his tattoo. Mighty Mouse. Small but powerful. That's Ebell. He is no more than 5 feet 9 and 170 pounds, a redshirt freshman who was averaging just over three carries a game until Saturday. He finished with an astonishing 203 yards against Oregon State--the 14th-best rushing game in UCLA history and the second-best ever by a Bruin freshman. Only Eric Ball, who ran for 227 as a freshman in the 1986 Rose Bowl, had more.

Time: 12:30 p.m. Site: Memorial Stadium, Berkeley. Records: UCLA 5-0, 3-0; California 4-2, 2-1. TV: Channel 7. Radio: AM 1150. The Offenses UCLA has scored at least 40 points in all five games, the longest such streak in school history. At 46.6 points an outing, the Bruins are well ahead of team-record pace, almost four points better than the 42.7 from the 1973 team with Kermit Johnson and James McAlister. The 161 yards receiving last week by Danny Farmer were ninth best in UCLA history.

Scott Lorenz La Canada If I wanted to see a 6-3 game, I would have gone to Dodger Stadium. The line score could have read thus: UCLA: 6 points, 20 runs, 30 hits, 16 errors, 11 pass completions.

San Diego State has apparently come a long way in a year, going from prohibitive "off the board" longshot against UCLA in 1984 to a 13 1/2-point underdog tonight against the Bruins. As is often the case with perennially fearful coaches, UCLA's Terry Donahue is astonished that his team is a heavy favorite. "San Diego State is every bit as good a team as Tennessee," he said. "There is no question in my mind. People are not going to buy that, but that doesn't matter."

Tyler Honeycutt, a nocturnal gym rat, has finagled his way into Pauley Pavilion after hours for more than a month. The late-night sessions logged by the UCLA freshman forward are nothing new. He did the same thing at Sylmar High. "He and his friends would get out of school at 3 p.m., they'd practice, go eat, and then go back to the gym until 10-11 p.m.," said Lisa Stazel, his mother. "If I needed to find him, the gym was where I looked first." Honeycutt's midnight madness this year helped him make up for lost time.

Learning to make stuffed grape leaves is a lesson that reaches far beyond cooking, to world trade, expository writing, even marriage and family traditions. In fact, the requirements of that last part hit home with some of the schoolteachers trying their hands at making dolmas one morning at UCLA. "There may be a couple of you who remain spinsters until you get your technique down," warns Barbara Petzen, outreach director of the Middle East Policy Council, who tells the group that a young woman would be under enormous pressure to make perfect stuffed grape leaves for the family of her fiancé.

The tradition of the UCLA basketball team swept through this quiet country town Monday with all the fury of sweet tea. "I don't care about UCLA's tradition," said Walter Hodge, a backup guard on the Florida basketball team. "I don't know anything about it." He was asked if he had heard of a coach named John Wooden. "I don't know, and I don't care," he said. He paused. "Is he that old dude?"

One man couldn't see what was right in front of him. The other had vision despite blindness. Archibald Gillespie, a 19th-century Marine captain, so misunderstood Mexican culture that he triggered a Los Angeles rebellion during the Mexican-American War. Werner Marti, his biographer, lost his eyesight in high school but graduated from UCLA. He stumbled upon the papers of the detested Yankee Marine as he searched for a dissertation topic in 1949.

Arron Afflalo couldn't wait. He wanted to see what all the fuss was about. He wanted to know if Adam Morrison was really another Larry Bird, as he had been described, wanted to know how the Gonzaga star and college player-of-the-year candidate had managed to average 28.2 points a game this season, wanted to see where Morrison liked to set up on the court, which direction he liked to move, and how many different shots he had in his arsenal.

Cornerback Matt Ware will not suit up for today's Pacific 10 Conference game at Stanford, but the UCLA junior made sure his presence was felt this week, hobbling from player to player to deliver a message as the Bruins stretched before Tuesday's practice. "He talked to each guy, and he said, 'Remember the last time we went to Stanford, remember that game, remember what we've got to do,' " said Eyoseph Efseaff, UCLA's junior offensive guard. "This one has a little extra meaning to it."

They've gone from ruins to Bruins before our eyes and so many people deserve credit: Bob Toledo, Ryan McCann, DeShaun Foster, Freddie Mitchell, Brian Poli-Dixon. But the person most responsible for allowing UCLA to catapult from an unranked team on Sept.2 to a national title contender on Sept. 16 actually retired two years ago. In 1986, Jim Milhorn, the Bruins' then-associate athletic director, arranged a home-and-home series with Michigan. In 1988, he worked out a similar deal with Alabama.

Ben Howland was welcomed to the peculiar world of UCLA basketball on Wednesday. The new Bruin coach experienced an array of oddities during a first day in Westwood that did not end until he agreed on a contract at 9:40 p.m. He learned of the school's financial constraints while hammering out a deal that is the most lucrative given to a UCLA coach but could cause Howland serious tax liabilities.
