On the wall next to Coley Blind's desk in the back corner of the Pimlico racing office is a small framed black-and-white photograph of the legendary race horse Citation, the day of his walkover in the 1948 Pimlico Special. A walkover usually only takes place when the favorite is so overwhelming that nobody even bothers to enter another horse to compete, and the lone runner takes a solo victory lap around the track. That's how great Citation was. In the picture, Eddie Blind, dapper in a fedora, holds Citation's shank with his right hand while cradling his little son Coley, dressed like Spanky from "The Little Rascals," in his left.

There's a line in a romantic ballad that goes, "A man chases a girl until she catches him," which runs just about parallel to the situation that led to a potentially terrific fight supporting Vincent Pettway's junior middleweight title defense in Las Vegas this coming Saturday.Derrell Coley of Washington will be putting his North American Boxing Federation welterweight title on the line against Oba Carr, the Detroit fighter Coley wanted to oppose since, since, oh, way back."For about a year we chased around trying to get Carr into the ring," says Barry Linde, retired millionaire (real estate development)

WASHINGTON -- What a great move it was, the North American Boxing Federation decreeing its welterweight title was for grabs and that Derrell Coley and Terrance Alli could trade haymakers for the belt at the Convention Center last night.After just a couple of rounds, it was apparent that this one would qualify as a nominee for "fight of the year" on USA Network's "Tuesday Night Fights" series.Most in the audience thought this one was likely in the bag for the unbeaten Coley since Alli has been fighting since 1979 and everyone figured he was just a couple of years away from collecting social security.

HAMPTON, Va. -- First-year Morgan State football coach Stanley Mitchell said he took the job at his alma mater for the challenge, but he may have gotten more than he bargained for.The Bears' season came to a disappointing end yesterday, as they fell, 34-14, at the hands of the Hampton University at Armstrong Field. Morgan State finished the season 2-8 overall, 0-7 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference."The biggest challenge this season has been trying to find the right people to match up with our opponents and trying to put together the right system," Mitchell said after the game.

HAMPTON, Va. - Tailback Montrell Coley carried 50 times for 253 yards and scored two touchdowns to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference's all-time leading scorer, as he paced Hampton to a 31-14 win over Morgan State yesterday. The number of rushes on this wind-whipped, 45-degree afternoon and the yardage total were single-game school records. "Coley was a major factor," Morgan State coach Stanley Mitchell said. "He's Hampton's go-to guy, and he made a big difference in the second half."

Western Maryland College in Westminster won't be called Western Maryland College for long, though what it will be called remains a mystery. Tired of having prospective students think the college is in remote Western Maryland or assume it's a weak sister in the state university system, the private college's president and chairman of the board announced plans yesterday to find a new name. They have hired an Illinois-based marketing firm for almost $200,000 to help with the six-month search.

When Joan Develin Coley was named president of Western Maryland College last year, the white Queen Anne-style president's house on the school's Westminster campus was dark and outdated. Coley wanted to renovate the 19th-century house, keeping its historic character and sense of formality while reflecting her taste for lots of light, simple design and contemporary style. During the past year, the 5,600- square-foot house has undergone a thorough $250,000 renovation and restoration, inside and out. In the process, the project caught the eye of the cable network House and Garden Television.

A tiara sits behind a glass door in the president's office at Western Maryland College - a girly, sparkly crown of rhinestones and pink plastic hearts. On a shelf next to it, wrapped in clear plastic, is the new black velvet tam with the gold tassel Joan Develin Coley will wear today when she is inaugurated as the Westminster college's eighth president. Coley seems slightly embarrassed about the tiara, one of the few personal effects in the otherwise bare office she has yet to make her own. Being a princess is not exactly the image she wants to convey as the first female president and the first person to rise through the ranks of the 134-year-old college from assistant professor to president.
