TWO ''BIG GREENS'' -- one in California, the other in Washington state -- go before voters November 6. The outcomes of the two votes may say a lot about America's environment in the '90s.The Golden State version encompasses dream standards of environmentalists on every topic from pesticides to oil drilling to sewage treatment and preserving noble redwood forests. Everyone agrees it's the most elaborate (39-page, 16,000-word) piece of environmental legislation ever placed on a popular ballot.

No. 15 Harvard hung on in the last quarter Saturday to beat No. 17 Princeton, 9-8, and earn an Ivy League tournament spot.

Princeton had seven goals over the rest of the game, including a game-high three from attackman Ryan Ambler, but Harvard broke up the rally with two goals, and the Tigers fell just short. No. 13 Cornell 14, No. 16 Brown 9: The Big Red led 10-3 at the half, and the Bears' rally in the fourth quarter couldn't save them.

A few weeks ago, I had the intense physical pleasure of standing on the sidelines while my son's football team whipped an ancient foe to whom they'd been routinely losing for years. And my joy was nothing to their joy: To see them intoxicated at game's end on the vapors of victory was to see pride of manhood at its highest pitch. Each of them, I know, had earned a moment of bliss so pure he'd never forget it.That's what sports movies are selling, only without all the time in the gym. Here's "The Big Green," in which the sport is soccer and the locale is Texas, and it is "The Mighty Ducks" and "Major League" and "Hoosiers" and any big game movie you ever saw all rolled into one -- only not as good.

The host Orange (5-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) got early separation, but the Fighting Irish (4-3, 2-1) rallied in the fourth quarter. Notre Dame fell behind 10-7 with 13:41 remaining in regulation but responded with three straight goals in less than three minutes. The score was tied at 10 with 6:29 left in the game. "For Notre Dame to come in here having the success they've had, especially their stingy defense, and we were able to put up double figures - that was big," Syracuse coach John Desko said.

THE DEFEAT of two California initiatives sponsored by environmental groups does not signify, as their supporters seem to believe, the demise of environmentalism or increasing voter hostility toward the environment. More important, the campaign itself showed a surprising and disturbing lack of faith in democracy among proponents of a good environment.Before last Tuesday's election, champions of the state's "Big Green," Proposition 128, arrogantly claimed the fate of the environment lay with the measure's success, that its defeat would signal to the rest of the nation that environmentalism was losing its political potency.

As a player at Washington College in the early 1980s, Rick Sowell knew nothing but winning. It was more of the same during eight seasons as an assistant coach at Georgetown, where he helped Dave Urick turn the Hoyas into a Division I contender. So it was that Sowell packed his skepticism for a 1998 trip to Hanover, N.H. He wasn't easily sold on the coaching vacancy at Dartmouth, which was one of Princeton's whipping boys in the Ivy League. "The program was in a shambles," Sowell said.
