Paul Kariya's option of returning to the University of Maine to try to lead the team to a second consecutive NCAA championship is apparently gone. Maine was barred from the Hockey East conference playoffs Friday--and thus from qualifying for the NCAA playoffs--because of an ineligible player. Nevertheless, Kariya is no closer to joining the Ducks, said Mighty Duck General Manager Jack Ferreira, because talks with Kariya's legal adviser are "at an impasse."

To hear some college hockey insiders tell it, Shawn Walsh is the malevolent head of the Maine Evil Empire. The Black Bears' coach didn't care about making friends when he arrived in Orono in 1984 after stints at Bowling Green and Michigan State--he wanted to make an impact. If he was perceived as brash, emotional and, some say, too haughty about the supposed superiority of Western hockey, he didn't care.

UC Irvine basketball Coach Rod Baker, who interviewed this week for the vacant head coaching job at the University of Maine, withdrew his name from consideration for the job Thursday. Baker was considered one of three finalists to replace Rudy Keeling, who resigned to become Northeastern coach. But after visiting the campus and interviewing there, Baker said he had changed his mind about the job.

The last time Maine won the NCAA hockey championship, Paul Kariya was at the center of the celebration. Six years later, co-captian Steve Kariya was skating around the home ice of his Mighty Ducks' star brother, holding the championship trophy over his head after the Black Bears' 3-2 overtime victory over New Hampshire Saturday in front of 14,447 at the Arrowhead Pond. "I've never been on a team that's won anything," he said, "but I can tell you now there's no better feeling."

The spring social season was in full swing along the University of Maine's fraternity row, with a beer bust at Phi Delta Theta, a beer and barbecue party at Sigma Nu, the usual weekend-long flood of suds at Delta Tau Delta, and at Sigma Chi, an evening of . . . milk and cookies. "There were a lot of women here, and they all seemed to be having a great time," said fraternity president Tyler Batteese. "It was a great success."

He graduates this spring, with a spot on the honor roll and a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Maine. His parents, both teachers, would be thrilled and proud if he pursued a master's degree or a career on Wall Street. But if the kid follows another career path, Mom and Dad will love him and support him just the same. And, truth be told, the kid wants to do the same thing his big brother does for a living.

The playmaking and the poise of Paul Kariya have kept the Mighty Ducks entranced for months. Even in the final minutes before the expansion team made him its first-ever choice in the NHL entry draft Saturday, their eyes gave them away. "We had a hunch he was going to go to Anaheim," said Shawn Walsh, Kariya's coach at the University of Maine. "The first few picks, Michael Eisner kept looking back over here." The Walt Disney Co. chairman seemed as taken with the 18-year-old center, who will become the Ducks' first home-grown hockey player, as some of the team's scouts.
OPINION

The general assumption is that when it comes to educating American kids, more is more. Longer school hours. Saturday school. Summer school. Yet more than 120 school districts across the nation are finding that less can also be more — less being fewer days spent in school. The four-day school week has been around for decades, according to the National Council of State Legislatures, but it's quietly spreading as a money-saving tactic, especially after several states — including Montana, Georgia, Missouri and Washington — passed legislation allowing school districts to make the switch as long as they lengthened each school day so that there was no reduction in instructional hours.

Diligent readers of food and beverage labels may have noticed an increasingly common ingredient in some health and energy drinks: crystalline fructose. To some, the ingredient is a reassuring sign that the product hasn't been sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, a sweetener that's been falling out of consumer favor over concerns of a disputed link to obesity and diabetes. Others, however, may have found themselves wondering what, exactly, is crystalline fructose?

"WINNING isn't everything," Vince Lombardi famously said. "It's the only thing." For a particular group of competitors, Lombardi's one-liner is less a wry comment on cutthroat athletic competition than a simple fact of life. In boardrooms and bedrooms, in playing fields and universities, the hypercompetitive person appears -- transforming even the most trivial transaction into a ruthless face-off with a winner and a loser. We know it when we see it.
