Penn State began what it calls a "new era" of football Saturday by allowing 21 unanswered second-half points in a 24-14 loss to Ohio University. Penn State played its first game under Coach Bill O'Brien and fourth since former coach Joe Paterno was fired last November. An announced crowd of 97,186, about 9,000 below Beaver Stadium capacity, returned to pledge support for O'Brien and his football team, which went through a tumultuous offseason. On the field, however, second-half lapses led Penn State to its first opening-day loss 2001.

Give Toronto Blue Jays rookie Henderson Alvarez some credit for not discriminating by level. He has now beaten easily the Orioles and the Bowie Baysox in the same month, though, to be honest, he did have a little more trouble taming the Orioles' Double-A affiliate. On Wednesday night, in just his fifth big league start, Toronto's 21-year-old Venezuelan right-hander was three singles short of perfect for eight innings in a 13-0 dismantling of the Orioles before an announced 14,211 at Camden Yards.

The free-agent watch is marked by a series of critical dates, the first of which is Sunday. Either the Orioles re-sign catcher Mickey Tettleton by then, or face competition for his services on the open market.In theory, the deadline is significant for Tettleton too, for if he signs before Sunday, he will retain his rights to free agency the next time his contract expires.But Tettleton's agent, Tony Attanasio, yesterday dismissed those "repeater rights" as a motivating factor in his talks with the Orioles, which are expected to resume today.

Agent Tony Attanasio is leaving open the possibility that catcher Mickey Tettleton will accept a one-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles, but only if adverse market conditions force him into salary arbitration.Tettleton is seeking a multiyear contract but has yet to receive a multiyear offer. The Orioles have asked him to accept a one-year deal and might get their wish if they are willing to meet a Dec. 7 deadline for offering arbitration.If Tettleton has not signed with anyone by that date, the Orioles will have the option of offering salary arbitration.

Two general managers who supposedly were pursuing Mickey Tettleton denied they had interest in the free-agent catcher yesterday, while sources with two other clubs indicated he was not a priority item.Agent Tony Attanasio said Wednesday that five and possibly six teams were interested in Tettleton, but yesterday's developments raised new doubts about the demand for his client.The Orioles want to re-sign Tettleton for one year, and if he is still a free agent by next Friday, they must offer him a contract through salary arbitration to preserve their right to draft-pick compensation.

You don't need to repair the Hubble telescope to discover the outer limits of the free-agency madness. It's right here in front of us. The line ends where Mickey Tettleton begins.Mickey has, uh, struck out again.It isn't just the Orioles who didn't want Tettleton. No one wanted him. He's the automatic headliner on the new show: "America's Least Wanted."Is this embarrassing or what? In this era of profligate spending, when you get $3 million a year if you can tie your shoelaces without help, at a time when Larry "$4.5 million for two years even though he's 37 and you never heard of him" Andersen is about to break the bank, every team in baseball has effectively said to Tettleton, "We'd rather eat hot lead than even talk to you."

Orioles manager Buck Showalter and acting bench coach John Russell wanted to deliver the news to Matt Wieters, but there was the small matter of finding the young catcher on a day the players didn't have to report until much later. Their search took all of a couple of seconds. About four hours before the series finale with the Atlanta Braves on Sunday, Wieters was stationed in front of his laptop in the visiting clubhouse at Turner Field, watching scouting tape of the Texas Rangers hitters the Orioles will face Monday.

No player personified the 1989 Orioles more than Mickey Tettleton, the poster boy for the "Why Not?" crew that nearly won a pennant. Spurned by other clubs, Tettleton joined Baltimore and blossomed in that magical summer as the no-name Orioles gave fans the ride of their lives. That the Birds battled the Toronto Blue Jays to the wire before losing the American League flag was attributable greatly to Tettleton, the Popeye-armed journeyman catcher who batted with a chaw in his cheek and a stance all his own. So what if he stood soldier-straight at the plate, abandoning the hitter's crouch?

Well, that was more like it. Three hits in seven innings. A dazzling 94-pitch effort in the cold. A 9-3 victory over the Texas Rangers.That was Mike Mussina last night, as good as ever.The rest of the season?It depends on the calcium deposit in his right elbow.Maybe it won't bother Mussina.Or maybe it will lead to arthroscopic surgery that would sideline him a minimum of four weeks.No one knows."It's just something you get used to," Orioles pitching coach Ray Miller said. "Mike probably has never felt anything like that in his arm before."
