Hey, is it warm in here? (Five coaches on the hot seat) Billy Gillispie, Kentucky: : Anyone who signs a contract in Lexington knows what's in store. Win a national championship early on, as Rick Pitino and Tubby Smith did, and you're playing with house money. If not, you're on borrowed time. Sidney Lowe, North Carolina State: : The Wolfpack finished 11th in the Atlantic Coast Conference last year after being picked third, and J.J. Hickson left after only one season. Lowe's 1983 championship ring will get him only so far. Pat Knight, Texas Tech: : Folks in Lubbock might not be paying attention to basketball for a while, but The General's son should heed what happened to Sean Sutton at Oklahoma State after replacing his Hall of Fame father.

Washington Redskins cornerback Darrell Green yesterday was cleared by doctors to practice for the first time since he suffered a broken forearm in the second game of the season against the Atlanta Falcons.But Green, who was at first feared lost for the season, had only limited duty in the workout and isn't expected to be activated for the game Monday night against the New Orleans Saints.The team's other starting cornerback, Martin Mayhew, was sidelined with the same injury last week, so Alvoid Mays will start in that spot.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- This was supposed to be the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Charles Bell.When the ninth-round draft choice from Baylor came to Washington Redskins training camp three weeks ago, he was focused on trying to beat the odds and win a roster spot.Now he's finding it difficult to concentrate. Suddenly, football doesn't seem that important anymore.That's because his only child, 2-year-old Charles Bell III, died of a blood disorder in Waco, Texas, last week.Bell resumed practice for the first time yesterday.

There's bad news for Southern High basketball opponents. The second-ranked Bulldogs have won their two games against top-20 teams this season by margins of 36 and 25 points, and coach Meredith Smith said they are going to get better.No. 6 Towson Catholic couldn't match up yesterday with the Bulldogs' quickness or size, as Southern raced to a 78-53 win in a Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference Division II game."I thought there was some improvement," said Smith, who wasn't satisfied with his team's season-opening 83-47 victory over Calvert Hall on Friday.
