In many ways, the dramatic rise of the Big East Conference paralleled college basketball's explosion during the 1980s: more television exposure, not to mention more revenue, led to nearly unmatched success.By the middle of the decade, the Big East had become the standard against which other conferences measured their progress. In 1985, three teams from the then-6-year-old conference reached the Final Four in Lexington, Ky."You had great marquee players like [Patrick] Ewing and [Chris] Mullin, you had a lot of coaching personalities and you had some great teams," said Maryland coach Gary Williams, who was in the conference at Boston College from 1982 to 1986.

Junior tailback Amp Lee, Florida State's leading rusher, is academically ineligible to play in the Mobil Cotton Bowl, coach Bobby Bowden said yesterday.Lee, who rushed for 977 yards and caught 26 passes for 336 yards this season, failed to meet Florida Board of Regents academic standards, Bowden said. He did meet NCAA standards, which are less stringent.The fifth-ranked Seminoles (10-2) play No. 9 Texas A&M (10-1) in the bowl."This in no way should be construed as my making a decision to leave school and turn professional," said Lee.* Athletic directors of the Big East Conference heard details about an offer from the Blockbuster Bowl and an alliance of bowls that could lead to a national football championship game.

SPORTS PUNDITS are in a tizzy because two women's college basketball coaches conspired to help an injured player set a school record. Yet fans learned long ago that athletics isn't always pristine. Too many players and coaches manipulate outcomes for the wrong reason. It's difficult to get upset when collusion occurs with the intent of doing something right.University of Connecticut star Nykesha Sales was one point from breaking her school's scoring record when she ruptured an Achilles tendon.
