Remember Penn State?Last year, the Maryland Terps went for the field goal to tie Penn State and said the team deserved the tie because it's like a win against Penn State.So what does Joe Krivak say about Louisiana Tech? That if he were in that situation, he probably would have gone for the victory. Who is he kidding?Hap Hoy BaltimoreRun big-league race resultsI deplore your discontinuance of publishing the New York race results.

Phil Woods, the legendary jazz saxophonist who jammed with Charlie "Bird" Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, walked into the auditorium of Towson High School yesterday, amazed that a water main break that closed area schools hadn't canceled his appearance. "Did you get special dispensation from the emperor?" Woods asked music teacher Barry Karow. "Sir," Karow replied, "you are the emperor." Woods, wearing his customary bebop cap, proceeded to educate and entertain 22 students and their teacher for two hours, spinning yarns about the days of avant-garde jazz, tinkling at the piano and playing an alto saxophone.

In a perfect world, or at least a perfect sports talk radio world, Phil Wood, the best and brightest of his type in Baltimore, would reign supreme at a station with a powerful signal and the inclination to give the kind of time and support to make a go of it.So far, however, Wood hasn't found that perfect place, and so he'll be leaving his late-night perch on WCBM (680 AM) after tonight's 10 o'clock broadcast."One of the callers asked on the air the other night: `So, how many last shows have I heard you do?

Jim Palmer might be on his way to becoming the next Phil Donahue -- are you there, caller? -- but he's not getting out of baseball.Home Team Sports has added Palmer to its announcing team. Palmer, bounced from Channel 2's telecasts for financial reasons, will work about 25 of HTS' 90 Orioles games, principally as a second analyst with former Orioles teammate John Lowenstein, though sometimes filling in on play-by-play for Mel Proctor."Not that I wouldn't have liked to continue at WMAR, but HTS does do a terrific job," Palmer said yesterday.

If you tuned into WYST (1010 AM) yesterday at 4 p.m. expecting to hear Phil Wood's sports talk show, you heard music instead. And, though it may not be music to the ears of Wood's listeners, that's what will be occupying his time slot from now on.WYST-AM began simulcasting WYST-FM yesterday at 3 p.m., and that meant an end to all AM programming, including Wood's show."

AM radio station WYST dropped its oldies format yesterday and now is simulcasting the adult contemporary programming of its sister station, WYST-FM.The changeover, which went into effect at 3 p.m., resulted in the layoff of five on-the-air personalities, including Phil Wood, who had conducted a sports talk show six days a week for the past two years. Mr. Wood had a revenue-sharing arrangement with the station and was not on the staff.Bill Hooper, manager of both stations, said at least one of the laid-off broadcasters would be transferred outside the Baltimore area to another station owned by the Bethesda-based parent corporation, United Broadcasting.

The old medical saw, "feed a fever," certainly applied in the case of the Oriole Advocates' Hall of Fame Luncheon. In this case, the Sheraton Inner Harbor ballroom raged with Oriole fever, as a packed house of fans welcomed three new inductees into the Oriole Hall of Fame. The treatment for this "epidemic" began with big rounds of applause as Oriole bullpen coach Elrod Hendricks, former pitcher Mike Boddicker and former General Manager Hank Peters were escorted to the dais. Formal induction and lunch soon followed, which only inflamed the "fever" rather than providing a cure.

I can't tell exactly when it happened, but, at some point, Dan Dierdorf changed from an announcer to a pronouncer. Dierdorf, though still one of ABC's great assets on "Monday Night Football," keeps making pronouncements instead of just being the intelligent, entertaining analyst he once was.And another thing I like is the way you once called games.*If a baseball divisional race goes down to the last day, you might get to see the deciding game on ESPN. The cable network will be finished with its Sunday night games by then, so it has the option of picking up another game on Oct. 6, an ESPN spokesman said.
