MIAMI -- Nearly every year for the past decade, the Nebraska football team has come to the Orange Bowl saying things will be different. And every time, the Cornhuskers go back home to Lincoln with their record blemished, their pride shattered.The only thing left intact is Nebraska's -- and coach Tom Osborne's -- reputation.It is a reputation for losing big games, national championship-type games, especially those played on New Year's Day. Starting in 1984, when a decision to go for a two-point conversion here failed and the Cornhuskers lost by a point to Miami, Nebraska has lost four straight here and seven straight bowls overall.

Reading time, two minutes:WHILE everyone is in a fix-it mood -- get rid of instant replay,have a college football playoff, invade Kuwait, etc. -- it's time once again to propose the longer a field goal the less point value it should carry. Sometime in this decade, they'll be kicking 75-yard field goals and a team won't even need an offense.* Dick Schultz wants colleges to, in effect, pick up the tab for football and basketball? The NCAA executive director obviously hasn't checked out some of the deficits some states are running.

Sportsmanship (or the lack thereof) was discussed at length here a couple of weeks ago and, running the risk of being classified as a Johnny One Note kind of guy, already it's time to talk about it again.Four, count 'em, four bench-clearing brawls occurred at college football games Saturday. To paraphrase the old-line hockey detractors chorus, "I went to a fight and an ACC game broke out."Not to be outdone, there was an ugly situation at the Miami-Buffalo pro game Sunday, which wasn't helped by NBC's providing pictures of Dolphins linebacker Bryan Cox giving an obscene gesture to the crowd at Rich Stadium before the game as though he was the pope blessing the crowd in Papal Square.

For Bryan Fortay, there was never any doubt where he would play college football.Named to almost everyone's All-America team and rated among the nation's top high school quarterbacks his senior season, he was coveted by almost every major college. But he felt that Miami -- the training ground of Jim Kelly, Bernie Kosar, Vinny Testaverde, Steve Walsh and Craig Erickson -- was the place where real quarterbacks developed."I was attracted to the whole concept of 'Quarterback U.,' playing for Coach [Jimmy]

MIAMI -- A month ago, Larry Jones wasn't planning on playing much in last night's Federal Express Orange Bowl. Even after Miami fullback Stephen McGuire sustained a season-ending knee injury five weeks ago against Boston College, Jones knew he was still No. 2 on the depth chart.And then McGuire's replacement, Martin Patton, was arrested for credit-card fraud."I was out taking a test that day, and I came by the football office and Coach [Dennis Erickson] asked me if I heard anything about Martin," Jones recalled earlier this week.
