Capper to poor decision Mike Bianchi Orlando Sentinel Isn't the Arkansas radio reporter who got fired for wearing a University of Florida cap into Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino's news conference actually better off? Now when somebody asks her where she works, she doesn't have to turn red and answer sheepishly, "Hog Sports Radio. " But I digress. How far should partisan broadcasters go to support their team? Well, if you are directly paid by the team (like college and NFL play-by-play broadcasters)

College basketball Arkansas@Auburn 9 p.m. [ESPN2] It's slim pickings for sports fans tonight, but Arkansas' John Pelphrey will coach his first game in the Southeastern Conference, as the Razorbacks (11-3) travel to Auburn (9-3). Arkansas began the season ranked in the Top 25 but lost two of its past four games before defeating Baylor on Saturday night, 85-78. Auburn coach Jeff Lebo is asking fans to wear white T-shirts as part of the university's White-Out promotion, which is intended to display unity and perhaps leave the Razorbacks disoriented.

Arkansas, an unranked team that rose to No. 17 with a 27-10 win over then-No. 2 Auburn last weekend, seems to be taking its cues from the 2002 and 2003 teams rather than the past two. By not looking ahead, the Razorbacks (4-1) have lifted themselves from a season-opening shellacking from Southern California to their stunning triumph over the Tigers. That's something the team hopes to continue, not only in its quest for a title in the Southeastern Conference, but also in today's game against apparently overmatched Division I-AA Southeast Missouri State.

Razorback's Food: ** 1/2 stars Service: *** stars Atmosphere: ** stars Where: Dulaney Valley Shopping Center, Towson Hours: Open every day for lunch and dinner Prices: Appetizers, $5.95-$9.95; main courses, $9.95-$24.95 Call: 410-821-9550 The new Razorback's Raw Bar & Grill in Towson fills a particular niche: It offers ribs for yuppies. This is not a bad thing unless you're a purist about your barbecue - that is, if you believe that real barbecue can only come from a shack with a woodpile out back.

I was surprised when Razorbacks Raw Bar and Grill in Canton closed last spring. It served the kinds of foods Baltimoreans love - ribs and seafood - and it did them well. It turns out that Razorbacks didn't close for good; it was merely relocating. The restaurant has reopened where Fisherman's Wharf used to be in the Dulaney Valley Shopping Center in Towson. The new space is about twice as large as the Canton Razorback's was. Chef Andrea Prezioso is still running the kitchen and turning out the ribs, pancetta-wrapped grilled shrimp, seared tuna and cedar-planked salmon the Canton restaurant was known for. Dinner entrees are priced from $9.95 to $24.95.
