Morgan State's quest for a third consecutive winning football season has become a little more difficult with the addition of Division I-A San Jose State to the schedule. The Spartans from the Western Athletic Conference will entertain the Bears on Sept. 18 at 8 p.m., replacing I-AA Towson University on the Morgan schedule. "It's a wonderful opportunity for our program," said Morgan athletic director Dave Thomas. "We began talking to San Jose in January, and the game just recently became official."

Are the New York Jets better off without wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson? That's the soap-opera story line in today's showdown of unbeatens, the Jets at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which has been touted as "The Final Say by the Bay." For Johnson, it's his long-awaited opportunity to stick it to the team that traded him to the Buccaneers in April for two first-round draft choices. For the Jets, it's their only chance to silence Johnson. "I think you can always replace a guy statistically, but you can't replace that magic that he brings," Johnson said.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Suppose the strike continues. Suppose the Orioles stand pat and decline to participate in replacement games once the regular season starts.Now suppose that some Orioles major-leaguer, desperate for money, crosses the picket line and tells the team he's ready to play -- for a team that's not playing.What will the Orioles do then?This brain teaser, a real possibility if yesterday's National Labor Relations Board decision does not end the strike, is something the Orioles' front office hasn't thought about much.

Besides the prospect of playing in a major-league ballpark or creating space for themselves in the Baseball Encyclopedia, the primary draw for the replacement players was money. Lots of quick cash.Now they may never get the big payoff, because owners may postpone or even cancel the replacement games. Going ahead with replacements could cost some teams at least $960,000.Each replacement player receives a $5,000 signing bonus, payable April 16. Many teams have already signed all or most of their replacement players, so that money is gone.

The members of the Major League Baseball Players Association laughed at the replacement games last March. No way the caliber of those games, the big-leaguers insisted, is anything close to the product produced by real big-leaguers.And they were absolutely correct. Replacement games were dominated by pitchers with 80-mph fastballs, hitters who couldn't drive the ball out of most parks. The fans ignored the games during the exhibition season. In the end, the replacement games were a moot issue, having zero effect on the ultimate truce arranged by owners and players.
