It never would have occurred to Jim Barker that on the day he began coaching in a league meant to combine the antics of professional wrestling with football, he would meet a man he'd later hire as his own replacement. It was about 9:30 p.m., and Barker had just finished one of his first meetings as offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Xtreme of the XFL, a league started by World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon. Barker walked out of the meeting room and was immediately greeted by Scott Milanovich, a former Maryland star, and Tommy Maddox.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Scott Milanovich is once again Maryland's starting quarterback, and the Terps hope the sight of Kenan Stadium brings him out of the doldrums.In his second college start, Milanovich kept Maryland in a 59-42 shootout loss at North Carolina last year, as he set a Terps record with 34 completions and tied another with five touchdown passes. It was the first of five 400-yard games for Milanovich and helped lead to a Maryland single-season passing record of 3,499 yards.L Milanovich's junior season hasn't been nearly as productive.

COLLEGE PARK -- Can the Maryland football team make it to a bowl for the first time since 1990?That was the key question as the Terps opened practice yesterday with fewer doubts than in coach Mark Duffner's previous four years at Maryland. The Terps return their kicker, seven starters on offense and eight on defense, and 10 of those 16 are seniors. They are coming off a 6-5 record, only their second winning mark in a decade, and have shown steady improvement the last two seasons.Will the progress continue?

Maryland quarterback Scott Milanovich, facing an eight-game suspension for violating the NCAA rule against gambling on intercollegiate athletics, won't further jeopardize his eligibility if he seeks to play in the NFL.Ordinarily, a player who declares himself for the NFL draft forfeits his remaining eligibility, according to NCAA rules.However, David Berst, the NCAA Director of Enforcement who works with the administrative review committee, told the Washington Post that the NCAA had granted Maryland's request for a waiver in Milanovich's case, pending his appeal of the length of the suspension.

Dick Shiner, the quarterback in Maryland's only victory over Penn State, will coach the old-timers in the Terps' third alumni game today at 1 p.m. at Byrd Stadium.The focus on the other side of the field also will be on quarterback, as the current Terps wonder about the future of Scott Milanovich.Already in a tenuous position academically, Milanovich was pointed out by an unnamed teammate and an athletic department source in a story in The Diamondback, the campus paper, as the starting point for the university's investigation into gambling among members of the football team.

ATLANTA -- So, two days after Maryland coach Mark Duffner benched an undefeated starting quarterback, the Terps took a pounding from Georgia Tech last night at Grant Field. Not Duffner's finest moment. Let's just say the echoes of Vince Lombardi weren't awakened.And who said the quarterback controversy at Maryland was dead?Not that the Terps' 31-3 loss hinged entirely on the change at quarterback from Brian Cummings to Scott Milanovich. That wasn't the case at all. It takes a lot more than one player to get squashed by a team that had lost 13 straight games to Division I-A opponents.

The Scott Milanovich Saga, also known as the story that should have gone on life support at least a week ago, has entered yet another phase. The Army has a term for it: Hurry up and wait.The sporting world clamors for word from the NCAA eligibility committee regarding Maryland's appeal on behalf of its quarterback, who has been penalized for the repeated breaking of a significant rule the school regards as "excessive."The NFL is at a standstill. The pros arrange for a supplemental draft every so often when it becomes necessary, like when a kid unexpectedly completes his degree requirements early (snicker)

Last year was even rougher on Scott Milanovich than first thought.A record-setting quarterback for Maryland who missed two weeks of spring practice on a university suspension and lost his job as the Terps' starter in late September, Milanovich faces an uphill climb to be eligible to play his final season.A Criminal Justice major, Milanovich withdrew from all of his courses last semester, when he contemplated leaving Maryland early to enter the NFL draft.The NCAA requires athletes to pass 24 credit hours in the previous year to be eligible, and the "75-25" rule requires that 75 percent of those credits be earned in the regular school year, before summer sessions.

The NCAA may have waived a rule to allow Scott Milanovich to enter the supplemental draft, but it's a moot point to the NFL.NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said yesterday that players must renounce their collegiate eligibility when they apply for the draft. The NCAA has a similar rule, but it reportedly has been waived for Milanovich while the Maryland senior quarterback appeals an eight-game gambling suspension.Milanovich's father yesterday reiterated that his son will wait until after his appeal is heard by the NCAA eligibility committee -- possibly this week -- to decide about the draft.

University of Maryland quarterback Scott Milanovich has agreed to a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Milanovich's agent, Tony Agnone, said the deal was completed Sunday night shortly after the seven-round NFL draft.Milanovich will be reunited with his former quarterbacks coach at Maryland, Clyde Christensen, who now works in the same capacity with the Buccaneers.It was Christensen who urged the Bucs' staff to sign Milanovich, who owns 12 passing records at Maryland."Once we got into the middle of the seventh round and he was still on the board, I told them they needed to get this guy," said Christensen.

Is he another Neil O'Donnell, or another Art Schlichter?That's the question the NFL has asked about quarterback Scott Milanovich, whose career at Maryland was marked more by controversies than wins. Milanovich has most of the Terps' passing records, but his senior season was played under the glare of a four-game gambling suspension, which could affect his position in the NFL draft this weekend.His agent, Tony Agnone of Eastern Athletics, said he is confident that they've been able to convince NFL teams that Milanovich doesn't have a gambling problem.

Scott Milanovich's Draft Emergency Plan has four phases.Phase 1 in his attempt to re-establish himself as an NFL prospect came at the Blue-Gray Game, where Milanovich was one of the Most Valuable Players. Phase 2 comes this week: He's in Hawaii preparing for Sunday's Hula Bowl, the last chance to impress the pro scouts in an all-star setting. Phase 3 will be the scouting combines in Indianapolis in mid-February.Phase 4 will be individual workouts for NFL scouts in College Park. Despite all of that damage control, Milanovich said he could be frozen out of the draft on April 20-21.

The East-West Shrine Football Classic decided that it didn't want Scott Milanovich after all, but the consolation prize for the Maryland quarterback won't be hard to stomach: a week in Hawaii courtesy of the Hula Bowl.At the start of the college football season, the organizers of the Shrine Classic had lined up Milanovich and Ohio State's Bobby Hoying to play quarterback for the East. Hoying, however, bounced up to a more prestigious all-star game, next week's Senior Bowl, and Milanovich had his invitation to today's Shrine Classic at Stanford (4 p.m., ESPN)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Would Maryland view a bowl game as a reward, or as a chance for redemption?"Both," Jermaine Lewis said. "We feel we're a good football team, and we want an opportunity to prove that. This is not the way I want to end my career."Lewis and the Terps' run-and-shoot offense piled up plenty of records yesterday, but they were minimized by the numbers on the scoreboard -- No. 6 Florida State put a 59-17 spanking on Maryland before 68,400 at Doak Campbell Stadium.Florida State (9-1, 7-1)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- It was not a good day to be playing pass defense.Florida State's 59-17 rout of Maryland featured a wide array of passing and receiving records. Scott Milanovich and Geroy Simon set school and Atlantic Coast Conference single-game records, but Jermaine Lewis passed the most significant milestone.A senior from Greenbelt, Lewis had nine receptions, giving him 193 for his career, an ACC record."It feels good, but I wanted to get the record in a win," said Lewis, who played with a hip pointer and a pulled hamstring.

If Scott Milanovich decides to pass on his three-game senior season at Maryland, he has options and precedents in his favor.There is the NFL's supplemental draft for players with special circumstances.There is the Canadian Football League for players who don't meet NFL specifications.Then there are Cris Carter and Darren Mickell. Former college players who had eligibility problems after a supplemental draft had already been held, they entered the NFL via a second supplemental draft.Carter, a wide receiver at Ohio State, was declared ineligible in the summer of 1987 after it was discovered that he took money from an agent and after the NFL had held a supplemental draft for Oklahoma's Brian Bosworth.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Losing hurt and North Carolina's nickel package was unsolvable, but Scott Milanovich was nonetheless happy to be back in charge of the Maryland offense.The Terps have had a quarterback controversy since their third game, when an ineffective Milanovich was replaced by Kevin Foley. Foley started and Milanovich received considerable playing time in the next two games, but the Maryland offense was not at peak efficiency with what was close to a revolving-door situation.Coach Mark Duffner decided to bag the script that called for two quarterbacks, but he needed a week off and 13 days to decide on who would get the lead role.

COLLEGE PARK -- Was there anyone at Byrd Stadium who didn't consider the scenario?Outplayed by Virginia for much of the game, Maryland crept within a field goal with three minutes left on its third big special teams play. The Terps' defense would get the ball back, Scott Milanovich would get the offense going, and Maryland would become the latest team to catch Virginia on a miracle finish, and lock up a bowl berth to boot.Reality, however, wasn't quite as pleasant for the Terps and most of the 45,720 at Byrd Stadium.
