Federal regulators have shut down all government-funded human medical experiments at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Tulsa amid evidence that researchers there broke multiple rules designed to protect patients, then tried to cover up their lapses by withholding information from university overseers and patients.

Don't be fooled by Ty Wilcox's demeanor. He's not one of those wrestlers who think they have to grunt, scream or growl to be heard. Nor is he a physical specimen whose muscles ripple with every move. Instead, Wilcox is a humble, rather quiet athlete with an average build. Since Wilcox transferred from Grass Valley Nevada Union to Calvary Chapel two years ago, he has won two consecutive state titles, at 152 and 160 pounds. He also has earned The Times Orange County wrestler of the year honors.

To look at new Oklahoma coach John Blake now, you could easily mistake him for a player. His broad shoulders and athletic stride mimic the swagger and confidence so often displayed by young college athletes basking in their physical and egotistical primes. But only a year ago, the picture was not so pretty. Rather than lean muscle mass and subtle ripples, Blake's physique had rounded out to a robust 340 pounds.

The grainy, black-and-white image of a little girl fills the TV screen, her guileless voice keeping count as she plucks the petals off a daisy. Before she can finish, she is drowned out by a man's voice, gravely counting down to zero. As the camera zooms closer, an atomic bomb erupts in the darkness of her eye, replacing the girl with a fiery mushroom cloud. "We must either love each other," the narrator says, "or we must die."

Here at Camp Schnellenberger, star defensive end Cedric Jones knows exactly how many steps there are from the bottom of Oklahoma Memorial Stadium to the top. He knows because the new coach ordered every player to scale the east-side steps twice a day, two times a week for four weeks. "Yeah, 71 to the top," said Jones. "In my [previous] three years here, we never ran the stadium. But a lot of people had dreams the night before." Starting Sooner tackle J.R.

John Walsh made Gary Gibbs' last game as Oklahoma's football coach a nightmare, passing for 454 yards and four touchdowns Thursday night in leading No. 22 Brigham Young to a 31-6 victory in the Copper Bowl. Gibbs announced his resignation in November but chose to coach through the bowl game. Walsh may have made him wish he didn't stick around. He threw a 43-yard completion on the first play of the game and didn't slow down.

Oklahoma turned to a builder of football programs to return the Sooners to national prominence, hiring Howard Schnellenberger to replace Gary Gibbs on Friday. In five years, Schnellenberger led Miami from the brink of extinction to a national title. In 10 years at Louisville, he won nearly half his games and took the Cardinals to two bowl games. That was a program that in the decade before his arrival had only two winning seasons. His college record is 96-71-2.

Gary Gibbs inherited a scandal-ridden program, cleaned it up, and led Oklahoma to six consecutive winning seasons. It still wasn't enough. Gibbs, who couldn't win the big games and championships that Oklahoma fans have come to expect, resigned Monday. "I've taken a bunch of bullet holes the past 5 1/2 years," he said. "This is a better program today than it was in '89."

Before the 1994 college baseball season began, Vern Ruhle, the University of Oklahoma pitching coach, told Kevin Lovingier to make up his mind about his commitment to baseball. "Some players want the game," Ruhle recalls saying, "but other players need the game. There's a difference, and you really need to decide the one you are." Lovingier remembers well that conversation with Ruhle, who pitched in the major leagues for 12 years with Detroit, Houston, Cleveland and the Angels.

Oklahoma got hot at the right time, and that was enough to give Coach Larry Cochell that elusive College World Series title. Damon Minor and Rick Gutierrez each drove in three runs Saturday in the Sooners' record-setting 13-5 victory over Georgia Tech. Cochell, the only coach to bring three schools to the NCAA tournament championship, had not finished higher than third with Oral Roberts and Cal State Fullerton.
