And to think this used to be a storied rivalry.By the time Morgan State and Grambling State ended their 16-year football association in 1983, the series had long developed into little more than an annual Grambling rout.Last night, the teams resumed play after an 11-year hiatus, and it was obvious in the opening minutes that the gap between the two programs has grown to Grand Canyon-like proportions.Grambling, led by legendary coach Eddie Robinson and an overwhelming supply of weapons, abused the Bears early and often en route to an 87-12 rout before 23,289 at Memorial Stadium.

Mozambique: A country six months wet, six months dry, sprawling along the hot, humid coast of the Indian Ocean between Tanzania and South Africa. Large enough to grant 10.6 square miles to each of its 15.4 million people (in 1989), and best known in the Western world, probably, for its major river. The Zambezi flows eastward, slicing the country in two.Mozambique is where Vasco DeGama dropped anchor in 1498, creating a colony for Portugal well into the 20th century.

NEW YORK -- Five times in the past six years the New York Knicks have played the Chicago Bulls in the playoffs, and five times the Knicks have been eliminated. So you try to make some sense of the fact that the Knicks were a little overconfident -- even cocky -- going into the Eastern Conference semifinal."They don't have that icon," said Knicks guard John Starks, referring to the retired Michael Jordan. "And when you dominate a team during the regular season, you can be overconfident."Yesterday, the Knicks could consider themselves fortunate, as they fought back from a 15-point second-half deficit to steal a 90-86 win before a sellout crowd of 19,763 at Madison Square Garden.

Oxford, England. -- In a few African parks that are well protected from ivory poachers, there are too many elephants. Elephants retreat from habitat lost to spreading agriculture and seek sanctuary inside the parks. Soon there are more of them than the parks' vegetation can support. They steadily eat themselves out of house and home, reducing food stocks for other species such as rhino.The result: an agonizing decision for park managers. The elephant numbers, many scientists assert, should be reduced until they are within the carrying capacity of the parks.
