DALLAS -- Terry Murphy can't jam, but he was in one two Junes ago.His company, Streetball Partners Inc., was more than $250,000 in debt. Bankruptcy was a real threat.A lot of chief executives in such a situation might try to entice prospective investors over lunch. Or, better yet, during a round of golf or a doubles tennis match at some exclusive country club. Or maybe after a few games of racquetball at some fancy health club.Not Murphy. He headed to Roger Staubach's backyard basketball court, where he knew he could catch a few fat cats playing hoops.

Kyle Eckel returns to the neighborhood tonight as a member of the New England Patriots. For four years, Eckel was one of the best to ever wear a Navy uniform - a football uniform, most in Annapolis would be quick to clarify. When it comes to the uniform of a Naval officer, well, that's a different matter altogether. It's not often Naval Academy graduates find careers in professional sports - Eckel is only the 12th to reach the NFL - so it's inevitable that announcers might reference athletic ancestors such as Roger Staubach and David Robinson.

Often, it has simply been a matter of sheer superiority in talent, size and speed. And on more than a few occasions, an uncanny Luck o' the Irish. But whatever made the difference, for 43 years that difference has always fallen on the side of Notre Dame whenever the Fighting Irish and Navy lined up against each other. Tomorrow in South Bend, Ind., Navy tries once again to break the longest stretch of domination of one team over another in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. Because Notre Dame is struggling through a 1-7 season, some believe the high-scoring Midshipmen (4-4)

ANNAPOLIS -- Roger Staubach looked inquiringly at his audience and quickly decided to answer the question before it was asked."Washington 31, Buffalo 17," he said.Polite applause."OK, Buffalo 31, Washington 17."Thunderous applause."I can't believe that," Staubach said. "What do you have against the Redskins? I like Joe Gibbs."Staubach was taking questions at Alumni Hall last night after delivering a lecture in the Forrestal Series at the Naval Academy. The series periodically brings leading representatives from various walks of life to speak to the brigade of midshipmen and other members of the Navy family.

No college football rivalry has been more one-sided than the Notre Dame-Navy series that continues in South Bend, Ind., on Saturday. The Irish have won the past 33 meetings, an NCAA record for consecutive victories over an opponent.The Midshipmen (3-3) say that this season they have a realistic chance of beating the Irish (3-5), who are struggling under first-year coach Bob Davie.It is hardly a coincidence that the last time Navy beat Notre Dame, Nov. 2, 1963, a junior quarterback named Roger Staubach was running a high-powered offense that averaged more than 30 points.

ANNAPOLIS -- The day before last year's Army-Navy game, Roger Staubach gave what amounted to a pep talk to a down-and-out Naval Academy football team that was playing out a depressing 3-8 season.Whatever Staubach said at the time obviously worked. The Midshipmen upset their archrivals, 19-17, the first win for Navy over Army since 1985.Staubach gave a similar speech Friday, during a team meeting at Ricketts Hall, as Navy got ready for its homecoming game yesterday against James Madison at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium.

PHILADELPHIA -- Jim Kubiak, who added to his collection of Naval Academy passing records yesterday by throwing for 361 yards against Army, found no personal satisfaction in the accomplishment.The senior from Buffalo, who compiled 17 school records in his three-plus seasons as a starter, had led the Midshipmen to a 24-3 victory over Army as a freshman in 1991. He sat out the 1992 game with a shoulder injury, but lost the last two games against the Cadets by two points each time."I've never been caught up in personal statistics," he said.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman thought about his rookie year in pro football and paused. Aikman is now co-owner of Hall of Fame Racing, a Nextel Cup team that debuts in the Daytona 500 tomorrow. He had just been asked how long he thinks it will take his team to be competitive. "I hope it isn't as difficult as my rookie season was," he said. "I was 0-11 as a starter, but yet, if it is, I don't think anyone is going to be prepared to throw in the towel."

DON'T LOOK now, but the U.S. Naval Academy's zipper is down, and the whole country's laughing at the sight of its hypocrisy.Having caught four midshipmen in forbidden sexual relations, the Navy sentenced three to expulsion and simultaneous public humiliation while allowing the fourth, star quarterback Chris McCoy, to graduate and pursue a professional football career, showing that his breakaway running abilities are at least the equal of his runaway glands.The...
