COLUMBUS, Ga. -- Bill Curry is a happy man.He is not satisfied with his 2-5 record in his first season as the head football coach at Kentucky, but he is smiling. Kentucky is not Alabama, not when it comes to football tradition, but Curry doesn't mind.Curry now is employed by what is regarded as a basketball school after leaving what is regarded as one of the most prestigious jobs in college football. Curry's 1989 Alabama team shared the Southeastern Conference championship and won a Sugar Bowl bid; his 1990 Wildcats are 1-2 in the conference and will be home for Christmas.

TAMPA, Fla. - Long before he accomplished the dazzling feat of guiding the Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl, Ken Whisenhunt's NFL coaching career had an inauspicious start in Baltimore. As a 35-year-old tight ends coach with the Ravens in 1997, Whisenhunt made news when he got trapped in an elevator for 10 minutes before the last game at Memorial Stadium. All the coaches - Whisenhunt and other assistants - made it to their posts in time for the game. A year later, Whisenhunt was let go with most of the Ravens' coaching staff when the team fired Ted Marchibroda and hired Brian Billick.

HERNDON, Va. -- Coach Joe Bugel will do just about anything to attract Phoenix Cardinals fans to home games, short of driving them to the stadium himself.On second thought, if some fans don't have a way to get to Sun Devil Stadium, Bugel might be available."I'm going to do that [drive fans to the stadium] Sunday," he said jokingly. "I've got my little black hat and bus out front. There's nothing wrong with that. We need that 12th man out there cheering."The problem is that, at times, the Cardinals seem to have only about 12 fans.
