Tina Turner's words resonate through the years, speaking to us in a challenging purr. "We never, ever do nothing nice and easy," she said, though this was no revelation to anyone who'd ever seen her perform in spiked heels that made her tall enough to be an NBA power forward.Today's question, then, is: Are you up to Tina's challenge? Are you going to do it nice and easy, skipping the day's first seven college football bowl games until the national championship begins in the USF&G Sugar Bowl at 8:30 p.m.?

Goodbye." It's a simple word, but sometimes it's just hard to say. OK, well maybe it's easy to say and hard to, you know, stick with it. That has been Brett Favre's problem. He has come so close to saying goodbye so many, many times. Then, in March, he did say it. There were tears and everything. But we all know what has happened since. Today, he'll be there when the Packers resume training camp. But before we accuse ol' Brett of an acute case of vacillation, let's point out that he's hardly alone.

They've broken up the old gang in Philadelphia that made the Eagles such an entertaining team a few years ago.Owner Norman Braman has sold the team, coach Buddy Ryan is in the desert in Phoenix, Jerome Brown died in an auto crash, and most of the big-name players -- including Reggie White, Keith Jackson, Seth Joyner and Clyde Simmons -- have scattered to the four winds.When they were all together in Philadelphia in the late 1980s, there was no team that created such a storm off the field but was so disappointing on it.Even though they never managed to win a playoff game, they were always a high-profile team noted for making headlines, whether it was Mr. Ryan treating the owner with disdain before he got fired or the defensive players treating the offensive players as if they were second-class citizens.

COLLEGE PARK -- Part of wearing a maroon Poets jersey is being part of a rich basketball tradition. No. 15 Dunbar is known for being one of the best teams in Maryland when it comes to boys basketball state championship success. But being part of such tradition also means incredible expectations are constantly put on high school players' shoulders. Yesterday at Comcast Center, the Poets couldn't keep up with the speed of the guards of Snow Hill of Worcester County. They were crushed at the free-throw line and lost, 63-54.

Final call: Keith Jackson, shown with Fiesta Bowl partner Bob Griese, put down the mike for good last night after 34 years with ABC.For the longest time during last night's Fiesta Bowl, it seemed as though Keith Jackson just didn't want to play along.In the final telecast of a career that's spanned more than 40 years, Jackson was determined not to give the audience what it wanted, namely some of those folksy witticisms that have punctuated his work for the 34 years that he has worked the college football booth for ABC.No "big uglies," no "fummmmmbllle," and certainly no "Whoa, Nellie" -- three of his trademark phrases -- passed through Jackson's lips and analyst Bob Griese, sensing the passage of history, fairly pleaded for Jackson to yield to the moment.

The Philadelphia Eagles had asked Pat Beach to keep Keith Jackson's starting job warm until Jackson's latest contract squabble was history.But when the Eagles' All-Pro tight end disappeared through a window of limited free agency this week, Beach no longer was an emergency fill-in. Now, the 32-year-old journeyman is the Eagles' main man at tight end.Beach found out that Jackson had agreed to a four-year, $million contract with the Miami Dolphins like millions of others did -- while watching "Monday Night Football."

PHILADELPHIA -- Today, All-Pro holdout Keith Jackson will ask a judge to sever his ties to the Philadelphia Eagles. Yesterday, another Eagles All-Pro -- defensive end Reggie White -- took the first step along the same path.White signed on as the lead plaintiff in a class-action suit representing hundreds of players seeking free agency. White's case isn't likely to go to trial for more than a year, if it ever does.It is part of the NFL Players Association's strategy to pepper the league with lawsuits until owners agree to a collective-bargaining settlement that players find favorable.

Keith Jackson could simply say "Danny Ford" and go on with his thought, but that wouldn't be Keith Jackson. Ford comes out "that tobacco-chewing fella over in Fayetteville," and when you hear such phrases, it's time to shout, "Welcome back, Keith. . . and college football [they're synonymous]."Saturday, at noon, Jackson will be saddling up as play-by-play announcer for the 27th year a-running as ABC gets the season under way with the Kickoff Classic: top-ranked Florida State vs. Kansas.Aside from his enjoyable down-home way of moseying through a telecast, Jackson is a guy who can get you up to date rapidly on anything having to do with the collegiate game, past, present or future.

MIAMI -- Tight end Keith Jackson sat in the locker room and smiled. This is what he had dreamed about. A playoff game, a playoff victory, touchdown receptions and more money.That's why Keith Jackson traveled from Philadelphia to Miami 3 1/2 months ago. He wanted to get his hands on more footballs and more dollars.So, on Sunday night, Jackson was in NFL heaven. He was in the middle of Miami's revitalized offense, one that helped rout the San Diego Chargers, 31-0, in an AFC semifinal at Joe Robbie Stadium.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles are playing better than any team in the NFL after three weeks of the season. This is impressive. This also is pretty much irrefutable.Without Jerome Brown . . .Without Keith Jackson . . .Despite summer contract problems . . .Despite Randall Cunningham's year away . . .There was every reason to believe that this team would be good eventually. But good early? And scary-good early at that? There weren't too many people outside of the Eagles' locker room who believed that was possible.
