COLLEGE PARK -- When Ron Vanderlinden is asked to name the zenith of his football career, he goes to the 1995 season. Going to Pasadena, looking out across a Rose Bowl improbably bathed in purple and then up at the San Gabriel Mountains, who wouldn't want to talk about that?Northwestern's rise in the Big Ten is one of the items on Vanderlinden's resume that led Maryland to put him in charge of a program that has been a bust the past 11 years. As pleasant as it is to reminisce about coaching Cinderella, however, Vanderlinden knows that his philosophy also was shaped by a time in Colorado where players were branded as a bunch of thugs.

Certainly, it's got the setup to do so.Just look at what the Christian men's group has assembled for its first national rally: 44 guest speakers, 11 JumboTrons (the group wanted a few extras, but the Rolling Stones had first dibs), 100-plus sound speakers, 24 generators (with hushed motors to preserve a prayerful ambience on the Mall), 210 phone lines, 130 stage lights, 1 million free Bibles, 1,500 portable toilets and much more.

LIKE THE MILLION MAN MARCH that preceded it, the greatest impact of Saturday's Promise Keepers rally in Washington will occur with individual acts of goodness. Life-changing experiences motivated hundreds of thousands of men to attend the Christian event; others found spiritual awakening while there. Families and communities will be better if these men fulfill their professed commitment to be more responsible.If there is any group action of lasting relevance, it may be political. Promise Keepers' leaders insist politics has never been a motivation for the 62 all-male rallies they have held since 1990.

Wake Forest coach Jim Caldwell is a man of beliefs. Be careful what you think, he warns, "because life is shaped by your thoughts."He thought he would be a head football coach one day, and he is. Now he thinks he is going to build a winning program at the Winston-Salem, N.C., school.It is hard to argue with Caldwell, who has beaten the odds to become the first black head football coach in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Caldwell, Temple's Ron Dickerson and Eastern Michigan's Ron Cooper are the only black head football coaches Division I-A."

WASHINGTON -- In the seven years since Promise Keepers was founded, the mass gatherings of evangelical Christian men have been criticized by some for having an almost entirely white, middle-class attendance, with just a smattering of minority participation.Acknowledging past failures, Promise Keepers founder Bill McCartney said yesterday that an Oct. 4 gathering on the Mall in Washington, which is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of men from across country, will be notable for its diversity.
