The NCAA has approved football timing changes that will bring back plays that were lost last season because of rules revisions designed to quicken games. In effect, the NCAA yesterday returned to the rules used two seasons ago, with the clock starting on a snap after a change of possession rather than when the referee signals the ball ready for play and time beginning on kickoffs only when the ball is legally touched, not when it is kicked. The rules oversight panel also moved kickoffs back from the 35-yard line to the 30 -- which should increase the number of returns and their distance -- and limited the play clock to 15 seconds after commercial breaks in TV games.

NOT EVERYONE feels bad that Eddie Robinson has watched his Grambling State University football team play its last home game under his watchful eyes. He has seen his teams chalk up 408 victories, more than any other college football coach. Baltimoreans who follow hometown Morgan State University will never forgive Mr. Robinson for the 87-12 shellacking the Tigers from Louisiana put on the Bears in 1994. Still, there are many more fond memories of that storied gridiron rivalry that began in 1946 with a Morgan State victory.

Eddie Robinson, the record-setting football coach who turned Grambling State into a nationally recognized power, ushered 210 players into the NFL and largely realized his vision of transforming the Louisiana school into the Notre Dame of historically black colleges, has died at 88. Robinson died Tuesday night at Northern Louisiana Medical Center in Ruston, the university announced. The cause of death was not specified, but he had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Starting in 1941 at age 22, Robinson coached at Grambling for 57 years and had a mark of 408-165-15 when he was forced to retire in 1997.
