It doesn't take a marketing whiz to realize that the College Football Hall of Fame belongs in South Bend the way Frederick's Museum belongs in Hollywood.Where else would one pay homage to the game than in the land of Knute Rockne? But the College Football Hall of Fame was mistakenly located outside of Cincinnati -- hardly synonymous with college gridiron.So it came as no surprise when the hall shut down in 1992 due to poor attendance. Now, those who are passionate about football and faithfully tend its flame get another chance to do it right when the new Hall of Fame opens Aug. 25 in South Bend's Century Center Complex.

If any of his coaching peers can relate to what Randy Edsall is going through in his first season at Maryland, it is the man who will be on the opposing sideline Saturday night at FedEx Field in Landover. Like Edsall, Brian Kelly came to a more high-profile position - in the case of Notre Dame, one of the most highly-scrutinized in the country - after having success at a Big East school. And, as Edsall has already experienced in his first 10 months in College Park, many wondered if Kelly was the right man for the job. Some still do. Though recent victories over Navy and Wake Forest have helped soften the mood since Kelly - like Edsall - questioned the level of talent he inherited in South Bend from Charlie Weis when he was hired before last season, the coach who built Cincinnati and two smaller programs into perennial winners believes it is part of the transition most coaches go through when changing jobs.

With respect to Les Brown and his orchestra, Bill Walton is preparing to take a sentimental journey this weekend when he returns to Notre Dame for the first time in 21 years.Big deal, you say? Well, on this date in 1974, the Fighting Irish pulled off perhaps the biggest regular-season upset in college basketball history, beating Walton's UCLA team, 71-70, at the Athletic and Convocation Center in South Bend, Ind.Notre Dame's win ended the Bruins' record 88-game winning streak, and the iconoclastic Walton, the red-haired 6-foot-11 center of that squad, says he's looking forward to going back to the scene of the crime Saturday, when he and Don Criqui call the game between the Irish and Xavier for NBC (Channel 11, 4 p.m.)

Brian Kelly will be introduced today as the next Notre Dame coach. He will, of course, instantly be ordained a savior, though he'll do well to just be Brian Kelly, with the peak-volume personality and production that suggests. He is a championship-program craftsman. He has the magnetic, kinetic charisma befitting the son of an Irish-Catholic alderman from Boston. He led Cincinnati to two straight Bowl Championship Series bids. It is the hire Notre Dame had to make, the energy and optimism transfusion a lilting powerhouse had to have.

Last weekend, Steve Beuerlein made a trip back to South Bend, Ind., to watch his alma mater play football in person. It was only the second time he'd been back at Notre Dame Stadium since he graduated in 1987 and headed to the NFL. But it must have been a thrill for the former Irish quarterback to watch Notre Dame's last-minute rally for a victory over UCLA. Except it didn't exactly work out like that.

The TV Repairman:If you're the type of fan who likes to ease into a big game, Maryland taking on N.C. State at noon (Channels 13, 7), Michigan-Minnesota on ESPN and Florida-South Carolina on HTS 12:30 should get you ready for the Notre Dame-Florida State headliner at 1:30 on NBC tomorrow.Taking just a bit of the sheen off this latest Game of the Century, although a very little bit, is the fact the winner probably moves on to a Fiesta Bowl meeting New Year's Day against Miami. Yes, Virginia, there is no ultimate game in any sport, as Duane Thomas so ably pointed out at a Super Bowl eons ago: "If this is the ultimate game, how come they're playing it again next year?"

Ambrose Wooden, the quarterback from Gilman School who has been recruited as one of the nation's top football players, will attend Notre Dame University in South Bend, Ind. He planned to sign and send his letter of intent at 7 a.m. today. "I really relate to Coach [Tyrone] Willingham," Wooden said yesterday. "Of the four head coaches who came to my house, he's the one I sat next to, the one I bonded with. "It's a good connection." Wooden, The Sun's Offensive Player of the Year, led Gilman to a 10-0 season and No. 1 state ranking.

Giants suspend Burress, end receiver's season nfl Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress is done for the year. The New York Giants fined and suspended Burress yesterday for four games - the rest of the regular season - after he accidentally shot himself in the right thigh over the weekend at a Manhattan nightclub. The team also placed him on the reserve nonfootball injury list, which means the wide receiver can't come back for playoffs. The team punished Burress a day after he was charged with illegal weapons possession, which carries a penalty of 3 1/2 to 15 years in prison.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- If you had never heard what Capt. Peg Klein's voice sounded like, last night under the stands at Notre Dame Stadium was not the time to find out. There wasn't much left of it, and she was trying her best to lose what remained. "I told the brigade at the start of the game," said a hoarse Capt. Klein, the Naval Academy commandant of midshipmen, "that the brigade was not allowed to have any voice at the end of the game. And they don't." Navy @North Texas Saturday, 4 p.m., 1090 AM

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- With Navy trailing and all but a small contingent of Navy supporters among the 80,795 fans at Notre Dame Stadium cheering for the Irish, Midshipmen quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada raised his arms to encourage the crowd to grow louder. He hugged opposing players. He put his arm around one of the game officials. He smiled from inside his helmet and almost seemed to dance. This was the confident attitude that helped lead the Mids to a 46-44, triple-overtime victory against Notre Dame yesterday, ending the longest losing streak in an uninterrupted series in NCAA history at 43 games.

THE POLITICAL SCIENTIST LANGDON WINNER HAPpened to be driving across the country in June 1967 -- just days after the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. "In each city where I stopped for gas or food -- Laramie, Ogallala, Moline, South Bend -- the melodies wafted in from some far-off transistor radio or portable hi-fi," he would write. "For a brief while, the irreparably fragmented consciousness of the West was unified, at least in the minds of the young." Forty years later, former Beatle Paul McCartney will attempt to re-create that spirit on Tuesday, when Starbucks hosts a 24-hour "worldwide listening party" with his new CD, Memory Almost Full, set on repeat at more than 10,000 locations in 29 countries.

South Bend, Ind. -- Victor Abiamiri and Ambrose Wooden came here from Baltimore four years ago hoping to find the kind of success at Notre Dame that they had at the Gilman School, where as seniors they led the football team to an undefeated season and a No. 1 ranking in the state. Returning today to play in their hometown for the first time when the 11th-ranked Fighting Irish meet Navy at M&T Bank Stadium, Abiamiri and Wooden find themselves in different situations in their college careers.

The transformation of Ambrose Wooden has happened so suddenly that he has to remind himself that it's real. Yes, that really was Wooden at sold-out Michigan Stadium last week, making two touchdown-saving tackles from his cornerback position to help Notre Dame earn a huge victory. Yes, that was Wooden again a week earlier, making his first start as a junior and producing 12 tackles in a season-opening blowout win at Pittsburgh. And it's the same Wooden who, a month ago, came into the Fighting Irish's preseason camp with scant playing experience, wondering how he would fit into the team's youthful defensive backfield under new head coach Charlie Weis.
