Jerry Falwell makes his appearance this week at the Republican National Convention, the future of the college he founded to promote the ideals of the religious right is in some doubt.Mr. Falwell, the fundamentalist Baptist preacher and televangelist, opened Liberty Baptist College in 1971 in Lynchburg in central Virginia. The college, now Liberty University, was to be an extension of his ministry, Thomas Road Baptist Church, with the stated purpose of "training young champions for Christ for world evangelization."

The Rev. Jerry Falwell doesn't body surf anymore. In years past, Liberty University's famed founder and chancellor, a self-described "sports nut," occasionally allowed himself to be passed hand by hand up seating sections by delighted students during football and basketball games at the Lynchburg, Va., school. But with age creeping up on him, the 72-year-old has mellowed a bit. "I bruise easily and heal slowly, so I haven't done that recently," he said by phone last week. But Falwell still loves to win, which makes the events of this fall that much more painful.

Like many Division I college basketball players, Larry Blair's day starts early and ends late. It, however, is everything in between that makes his collegiate experience different than most of his opponents'. There are religious convocations that he must attend and daily prayer sessions that mark the beginning and end of each class and most basketball practices. There are dress restrictions to abide by - no blue jeans outside the dorms - and a strict code of conduct to follow. Alcohol is prohibited on campus and so is cursing, fraternizing with the opposite sex inside dorms and staying out past midnight on weekdays.
