He lived in a small Indiana town barely a half-hour's drive from Notre Dame, but Rick Mirer grew up dreaming of playing college football across the border, where he could wear the blue and gold of the Michigan Wolverines."

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Ravens got beat by a No. 3 quarterback named Rick Mirer. We thought he was selling cars, insurance or cigars, but yesterday he helped light up the Ravens. This one is going to be tough to get over. The Ravens got beat by Mirer, a big-time bust out of Notre Dame. What happened in the Oakland Raiders' shocking 20-12 win over the Ravens yesterday? The new Ravens looked a lot like the old Ravens, the team that struggled before a recent three-game winning streak. They gave up 10 points on two turnovers, had eight penalties for 55 yards, dropped a couple of passes, quarterback Anthony Wright had problems, Lamont Brightful fumbled two punts and the offensive play-calling was questionable again, not just like it was earlier in the season, but seemingly forever.

FOXBORO, Mass. -- When Heath Shuler was trying to decide whether to pass up his senior year at Tennessee last January, he asked the quarterbacks who went 1-2 in the 1993 draft -- Drew Bledsoe and Rick Mirer -- for advice.Bledsoe left Washington State a year early and Mirer played his senior year at Notre Dame, and they both said they were happy with their decisions."Both of them said the main thing is you make your decision," Shuler said. "Whatever you think is best will be right."Shuler decided to pass up his senior year and it has worked out well so far. He was the third player picked in the college draft, by the Washington Redskins, and got a record $19.25 million contract.

The NFL is right in tune with the president. It is selling change this year.As the league prepared to kick off its 74th season today, commissioner Paul Tagliabue said last week, "I've called this year a season of firsts."We have our first national kickoff weekend celebration on the Washington Mall," Tagliabue said. "We have our new free agency rules. We have two rookie quarterbacks [Drew Bledsoe and Rick Mirer] opening the season as starters for the first time in two decades. We have our first Super Bowl in Atlanta, and expansion for the first time since 1976.

With the college draft two months away, the Washington Redskins have narrowed the list of candidates for their first-round pick to four players.After judging all the top prospects at the annual scouting combine meeting in Indianapolis last week, general manager Charley Casserly said that four players stood out.Because the Redskins have the third pick, they figure to select one of the four players with their first-round pick.In no particular order, Casserly's top-four list has quarterbacks Trent Dilfer of Fresno State and Heath Shuler of Tennessee, defensive lineman Dan Wilkinson of Ohio State and running back Marshall Faulk of San Diego State.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- The game itself came down to two plays. Yet in the overall scheme of things, it's what transpired before the two-deep zones and curl-pattern passes that probably determined the outcome. One might say it represented all that is good and bad about college football.Despite its relative youth, Penn State vs. Notre Dame has become a noted rivalry, drawing huge crowds and producing fiercely competitive games. In little more than a decade, the Nittany Lions have taken their place right up there with annuals Michigan State, Michigan, Pitt and Purdue on the Irish's vaunted schedule, right behind Southern Cal.For its home finale Saturday, the Lions were sky high as were the 96,672 who caravanned in to watch and party.

The first two picks in the 1993 college draft shared the common bond of duty. Drew Bledsoe and Rick Mirer -- cornerstones, saviors and quarterbacks -- would usher the NFL into the next generation, pure and simple.A decade after there was Marino and Elway and Kelly, there would be Bledsoe and Mirer, and the league's fine line of superstar quarterbacks would be reinforced.That it hasn't exactly happened that way is further proof of how murky this business of franchise transformation is for a young quarterback these days.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- He is a college football legend-in-making, from the uniform he puts on to the statistics he put up in his first game to the reams of material being put out about him across the country.It seems that the only one not making a big deal about Notre Dame quarterback Ron Powlus is Ron Powlus."There's nothing I can do about all the attention and all the hype," Powlus said earlier this week. "The only thing I can do is go out and play."It has been that way for much of the past four years, three record-breaking seasons at Berwick (Pa.)
