It took only the first release of the Bowl Championship Series ratings this week for a prominent coach to voice displeasure. Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville's once-beaten Tigers are sitting at No. 4, a notch above undefeated West Virginia, but he doesn't like his chances at a national title because of the ratings system. "Every year, it's going to be like this," said Tuberville, whose team gave Florida its first loss last weekend. "Until we get a playoff, the SEC's going to be on the outside looking in."

There was a reunion of sorts for nearly 9,000 Bengalis yesterday at the Baltimore Convention Center. At the ethnic group's 24th annual North American Bengali Conference, there were vendors' booths, movie screenings and moderated discussions about the culture. But for many, the most important business of the weekend event, which ends today, was catching up with old friends. Madhumanti Maitra, a popular news anchor in Calcutta, was walking quickly across the convention center when she spotted a familiar face out of the corner of her eye and stopped to give Potomac resident Dipankar Bhaumik a hug. The pair occasionally meet in India, but they hadn't seen each other in about a year.

Two months ago, the McDonogh girls lacrosse players never thought about going through the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference regular season unbeaten. That seemed a high goal for a team that had to rebuild a good bit, but yesterday the No. 2 Eagles (17-1) put the finishing touch on a 12-0 A Conference record with a 9-6 win over No. 7 John Carroll in Bel Air. "It's amazing," senior midfielder Kirstyn Atkinson said. "At the beginning of the season - not saying that I doubted us but - it was a big change from last year.

Halfway through its Colonial Athletic Association schedule, Towson is 3-0 in the league and tied with No. 12 Penn State for first place in the conference. As euphoric as the team's rebound from an 0-3 start may seem, coach Shawn Nadelen said the players aren't giving into the temptation of assuming that they have locked up a berth in the four-team CAA tournament. “Being 3-0 definitely helps our chances, but I think the CAA is still wide open,” he said Monday evening. “There are a lot of games left and we're only halfway through our conference play.

North Carroll girls basketball coach Bernie Koontz knows it's simply a matter of time before his team celebrates its next conference victory. Last night against visiting Urbana, however, the Panthers followed a familiar story line - poor shooting, spotty rebounding and yet another loss. Their 64-31 defeat was their 18th straight in Central Maryland Conference play. "I think a lot of it right now is psychological," Koontz said. "They're playing some of these teams that they know beat them last year.

Severn lacrosse coach John Tucker has led his fair share of top programs and athletes. While he was coaching at Gilman and Loyola, Tucker guided four teams to Baltimore private schools conference titles - a feat that usually means that team is considered the best high school squad in the country by lacrosse aficionados. On those teams, he has coached some of the best players to ever step on an area lacrosse field, including recent Princeton standouts Ryan Boyle and Damian Davis at Gilman.

The Houston Texans lost their top tackler two weeks ago when middle linebacker Brian Cushing went down with a season-ending knee injury. A week later, they were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers, 42-24, on their home field as Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes, the Texans couldn't run the football and their special teams faltered. Earlier that day, the Ravens outlasted the mistake-prone Dallas Cowboys, 31-29. In the process, they lost their leading tackler (Ray Lewis) and best cornerback (Lardarius Webb)

WASHINGTON - Having already decided not to send Secretary of State Colin Powell to a United Nations conference on racism because of dissatisfaction with the agenda, the Bush administration is now reported to be considering a boycott of another U.N. meeting on children for the same general reason. The gripe about the racism conference in South Africa is that Arab states intend to use it to equate Zionism with racism, downgrade the Holocaust and otherwise smear Israel, America's strong ally.

Launch him at once George Diaz Orlando Sentinel A better question would be: "Why hasn't Ohio State fired Jim Tressel yet?" Ohio State should have bounced him a long time ago.

" Ohio State shouldn't dawdle another day, but it's no surprise that administrators keep coddling Tressel.
