COLLEGE PARK - Tom McMillen could hardly have been a more highly touted recruit. "The best high school player in America," read Sports Illustrated's headline in bold lettering on a 1970 cover depicting the 6-foot-11 Mansfield (Pa.) basketball star. It was a lot to live up to - high school athletes were not normally hyped the way they are today - but McMillen didn't disappoint Maryland or its coach, Lefty Driesell. He averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds in his Terps career. On Sunday, McMillen - a Rhodes Scholar who went on to play in the NBA and serve in the U.S. House of Representatives - will be among the new inductees into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in Kansas City, Mo. "I'm really proud of him," said Driesell.

In a move that they hope will boost advertising revenue from their preseason game telecasts, the Ravens have hired the Fox network tandem of Dick Stockton and Matt Millen to broadcast the team's four tuneup games this year. The pair, considered the No. 2 broadcasting team at Fox behind headliners Pat Summerall and John Madden, reached agreement with the Ravens on Friday, said Dennis Mannion, Ravens vice president of new business development and marketing. "I think it brings a real professional feel to the games and makes it feel you are getting the A-team," Mannion said.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Linebacker Matt Millen was the unluckiest member of the Washington Redskins in the playoffs.Millen, who signed with the Redskins as a Plan B free agent this year, didn't get a chance to put on a uniform for the playoffs.He was one of the two players on the 47-man roster who was put on the two-man inactive list for Super Bowl XXVI yesterday. He had the same status for the playoff games against the Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions.Millen's problem was that the Redskins played two run-and-shoot teams before playing the Bills and their no-huddle offense.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- When Lyle Alzado announced to the world this summer that he was dying of brain cancer caused by taking steroids and human growth hormone, Matt Millen was not exactly surprised.In fact, Millen had predicted it years ago when they were teammates on the Los Angeles Raiders. Back then, it was common knowledge among players that Alzado, a maniacal defensive lineman, used performance-enhancing drugs."We used to jokingly say to Lyle, 'Don't invest your money, you're not going to live past 40,' " Millen recalled yesterday.

HERNDON, Va. -- Matt Millen wanted to make one thing perfectly clear."I personally have done tremendous in New York," the Washington Redskins middle linebacker said yesterday, looking out at the media throng that surrounded his locker at Redskin Park.Millen's geography was as dubious as his grammar. Although he played on San Francisco 49er teams that won two of three games against the New York Giants the last two seasons, all of those games were played in San Francisco. You have to go back to his rookie year in 1980, when the then-Oakland Raiders beat the Giants 33-17, to find a Millen victory in New York/New Jersey.

Members of the Towson baseball and men's soccer teams continue to wait to hear whether their programs will be disbanded by the university. President Maravene Loeschke sent a message to students and faculty Monday saying that a task force asked to study the decision had endorsed the recommendation to cut the sports. But she also said she would need more time to examine the issue before making her decision. She hopes to do so “as soon after winter break as possible.” Loeschke was not available for an interview this week, nor was Towson athletics director Mike Waddell.

It's becoming an annual event: A prime coaching job opens up and Bob Stoops' name lands on the supposed short list of candidates, only for him to say he's happy at Oklahoma. The latest supposed will-he-or-won't-he scenario: Stoops to the Denver Broncos? Not happening, Stoops said yesterday after his team practiced at Barry University, just a few miles south of the site of Thursday's Bowl Championship Series title game between his Sooners and the Florida Gators. "What situation? That's a rumor that I have not heard, and no one has contacted me about that so I don't know anything about it," Stoops said.

It's one of life's funny coincidences that Matt Millen finally got fired by the Detroit Lions the same week Ozzie Newsome's Ravens got ready to take a 2-0 record into Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. (And the same week Jerry Reese's defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants took their bye at 3-0. But that's getting ahead of the story.) Millen, of course, made a strong case for being the most criticized and vilified team executive in NFL history, if not in all of pro sports - and he deserved every syllable of it. Newsome never had heat on him the way Millen did (you know, because he won a Super Bowl)

NEW YORK -- As the market sold off over the past few weeks, fund managers have scoured their charts looking for quality stocks that have fallen noticeably. At the top of that list, said Don Hodges, co-portfolio manager of the $900 million Hodges Capital Management in Dallas, are industrial companies. Among the sector's possibilities are a group of mid- and large-cap companies that have performed well over the past few years. But as talk of inflation fears and another interest-rate increase overshadows all other market news, shares in some of these companies have been hit hard.

ONCE, everything Tom McMillen touched turned golden. McMillen made the cover of Sports Illustrated when he was still in high school, starred on the great University of Maryland basketball teams of the early 1970s and played on the U.S. Olympic team. He graduated from College Park, went to Oxford University as a Rhodes scholar, played 11 seasons in the National Basketball Association and served three consecutive terms in the House as the tallest (6 feet 11) congressman in history. But take the ball out of his hands, take him off Capitol Hill, put him in a business suit and McMillen looks more like a carnival barker than a man of accomplishment.

They apparently thought their week off began a day early.The Oilers' bye week begins this morning, but they said bye to their undefeated record yesterday under an avalanche of Hugh Millen pass completions (22 for 244 yards) and their own penalties (11 for 111 yards), leading to a 24-20 loss to the New England Patriots before 30,702 fans at Foxboro Stadium.The Patriots mystified the Oilers quarterback, All-Pro Warren Moon, with a variety of coverages.

Lately, a lot of receivers and tight ends have been gunning for Matt Millen. That statement was certainly true during Millen's 12-year linebacking career with the Raiders, 49ers and Redskins, but in the nine years since he hung up his cleats, the broadcasting booth has afforded him a lot of safety. However, in preparation for his stint Sunday as an umpire in the Tampa Bay-New England preseason game (Channel 45, 4 p.m.) Millen has been visiting training camps, including the Ravens', to get a handle on officiating.
