Freshman quarterback Eric Zeier had a surprisingly easy time in guiding Georgia to early control of the 16th Independence Bowl. Zeier completed his first seven passes Sunday, including two for first-quarter touchdowns, as No. 25 Georgia defeated Arkansas, 24-15. "The receivers did a great job of catching the ball and the line gave a lot of protection," Zeier said. "All of that makes it real easy for an offense to run smoothly. And coming out quickly on all cylinders made it easy."

There are the obvious differences between Cal State Fullerton and Georgia. A capacity crowd in the Titans' new on-campus stadium wouldn't fill the end zone in Georgia's 85,434-seat Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs award 95 full scholarships a year; Fullerton allots the equivalent of 47. Georgia has appeared in 29 bowl games, most of them major; the Titans played in the California Bowl in 1983 and something called the Mercy Bowl in 1971. Then, there are the not-so-obvious differences.

Titan football coaches were second-guessed for their play-calling in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against Georgia. Now this is progress. The fact that any fourth-quarter play even had a bearing on the game shows how far the Titans have come.

Surely, it is Georgia's time, at long last, in this Southeastern Conference/NCAA women's championship game tonight. Surely Georgia (28-4) is the country's best women's program never to have won a national title, and surely this is the team to put Coach Andy Landers on top after 17 seasons, this band of fast, hard-driving athletes who detonated Stanford on Friday. Yet just as surely, who in their right mind could go against Tennessee (31-4) after its last two games in the tournament?

Georgia Athletic Director Vince Dooley said Saturday that Northwestern football Coach Gary Barnett was in town to discuss the opening left by Ray Goff's firing. Barnett offered a different explanation for his visit Friday. "I was in Georgia on a recruiting visit and decided to stop by and see Vince Dooley and tour the facilities at Georgia," Barnett said Saturday in a statement. "It was simply just that. I'm not a candidate for the job at Georgia and have not thrown my hat into that ring."

Spurned by Kansas Coach Glen Mason, Georgia on Monday hired Jim Donnan of Marshall to become its new football coach. Donnan had been a top contender to replace the fired Ray Goff before Georgia Athletic Director Vince Dooley hired Mason last week. Georgia spokesman Claude Felton said a news conference would be held today to announce Donnan's appointment. Donnan has led Marshall to 64 victories and one Division I-AA national championship (1992) over the past six years.

North Carolina State's Dick Sheridan turned down the head football coaching job at Georgia on Saturday despite saying he found no negatives with the Bulldog program. Sheridan, 47, became the second candidate to refuse the Georgia position. Erk Russell of Georgia Southern said last week he couldn't make a long-term commitment to the school after reportedly being offered the post being vacated by Vince Dooley.
