LAS VEGAS - The challenger promised he would be "bigger, stronger, faster and better" than undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins, a man 14 years older. "There's a new era in boxing," said the 26-year-old from Little Rock, Ark., flexing his muscles at a news conference last week. "And it starts with Jermain Taylor." Last night, at the MGM Grand, Taylor kept his promise. Taylor (24-0, 17 KOs) beat Hopkins (46-3-1, 32 KOs) by split decision to begin his reign, ending the champion's middleweight record of successful defenses at 20. In the process, Taylor captured the World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association, World Boxing Organization and International Boxing Federation titles owned by Hopkins, who had been 24-0-1 since a May 1993 loss to Roy Jones.

ANNAPOLIS -- For B.J. Mason, this football season at Navy started like most of the others -- with a position change.The senior co-captain never has been sure of his true calling. In his years at Navy, he has been a quarterback, running back, split end, flanker and kick returner.Mason entered practice last month as the returning split end. Next thing he knew he was the flanker. A plebe, Tom Pritchard, had shown to such advantage behind Mason at split end that the coaches wanted to have both of them on the field at the same time.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Life keeps lobbing these tantalizing opportunities at Antonio Freeman. Like a good receiver, he hasn't dropped one yet.Take his rookie season in 1995 with the Green Bay Packers. When the team needed a kick returner, the wide receiver from Virginia Tech filled the bill with a bang.Freeman averaged better than 23 yards per kick return, almost 8 yards on punts, and when the playoffs arrived, he scored on a 76-yard punt return to help eliminate the Atlanta Falcons.A year later, he was in the starting lineup at split end. Then he was out, with a fractured left forearm.

COLLEGE PARK -- The 1990 football season was only two games old when Maryland got the notion it had a weapon that was both lethal and delightful.In his first two games after transferring from Montgomery College-Rockville, Terps receiver Gene Thomas caught passes for game-winning touchdowns in the final minutes. Next, in Game 3, was 16th-ranked Clemson and another Thomas touchdown catch, although it was not enough to avert an 18-17 defeat.After that, however, opponents caught on. Thomas became a marked man. He was double-teamed.

COLLEGE PARK - On one of those hot, humid August days this week, University of Maryland wide-receivers coach Rod Sharpless was shooing a few gnats. They wouldn't go away. He shooed again. No difference. The gnats were relentless.Now, if only his wide receivers can be as pesky this year."We're all kind of small and we lack a little experience, but I think we're just as talented as any group of receivers they have had here, said Maryland junior flanker Richie Harris (Mount St. Joseph High).

WASHINGTON -- Al Gore, who seems equally proud of what he did and of his promise to stop doing it, says he only did what his lawyer told him was permissible. When Newt Gingrich made that argument, the House ethics committee told him to pay $300,000. Everyone knows the rules are different for Republicans but, really, this is getting ridiculous.Mr. Gore hopes to take the oath by which chief executives vow to see that the laws are faithfully executed. Thus it is interesting that he does not construe laws strictly, by what they say in plain language.

Producing the big play always has been Antonio Freeman's specialty.Freeman's talent led to the unthinkable at Poly, where Augie Waibel, a proponent of 3-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust football, opened up the offense to get the ball to his wide receiver. Freeman was The Sun Offensive Player of the Year in 1989, when his 1,079 yards receiving led the state.Freeman is in a similar situation at Virginia Tech, which plays host to Maryland on Saturday. The Hokies' ground game is No. 5 in Division I-A, but when they want to go a long way in a short time, split end Freeman's role is magnified.

The formation: I-formation, pro right.Action: At the snap, the offensive linemen lock into their pass-protection sets. Fullback Ty Hallock (49) leads through the hole and running back James Allen (20) fakes taking a handoff from quarterback Steve Stenstrom on a play-action fake. Tight end Alonzo Mayes (85) runs a 10-yard pattern and cuts across the middle. Both outside receivers run stutter-step routes to freeze the cornerbacks, then try to jet by them on go routes.Stenstrom can throw to flanker Curtis Conway (80)
