HIGHER education in the state got its start in the Gold Rush era, when Jesuits and Methodists both established institutions in the Northern California town of Santa Clara. And 155 years later, it's still unclear which group should be deemed the founders of the first college in California. It depends on one's definition of "first." Although California Wesleyan College received its charter from the state in 1851, Santa Clara University considers itself the first institution of higher learning in California because it was the first to begin teaching students that year.

The University of Pacific, which has had a football team for 77 years, is dropping the sport next season to save money. The Board of Regents voted in a special meeting Tuesday to disband the team for at least one year. The decision does not affect any of the school's other Division I-A sports programs. Pacific, the only private school in the Big West Conference, had a 3-8 record last season.

"Touch your nose to the grass." Greg Bishop does as he is told, contorting his 6-foot-6 frame from a sitting position until he is sniffing soil on a soccer field. Later, on this same field, he will waddle backward, bounce forward, and eventually grab the neck of Keith Rowen. They will shuffle, as if dancing. Rowen, the offensive line coach for the Atlanta Falcons, is on the road in search of offensive lineman for today's NFL draft. This, the University of the Pacific, is his last stop.

Chuck Shelton had to go and ruin it for the rest of the Big West Conference coaches. It used to be so much fun playing the University of the Pacific. Sure, you'd give up a few points and a few yards to the Tigers' exceptional run-and-shoot offense. But, boy, was it ever a blast sending your offense out to face Pacific's pathetic defense. The Tiger offense could light up scoreboards, but their defense also kept statisticians busy, allowing an average of 553.4 yards and 33.8 points in 1989, 481.
