WITH 4 MINUTES, 9 seconds left in the second quarter of Game 2 in Chicago's United Center, 76ers coach Doug Collins was leaping off the bench and out unto the court to pull center Spencer Hawes away from an official after he was whistled for his third personal foul. Not long after Hawes' foul, the Bulls were heading to the locker room with an eight-point halftime lead and seemingly a stranglehold on a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. After allowing continuous wide-open shots to end that second quarter, in which Chicago scored on each of its last 11 possessions, the Sixers made adjustments in the locker room, and a new attitude arose.

Cheyney University football coach Vincent Williams wants to win a few games this year. More important, he wants to create a positive attitude on a team that is all too familiar with losing. Falling by 56-7 to West Chester in Cheyney's opener did little to further either goal. Rallying to tie Virginia Union, 21-21, on Saturday was a giant step in the right direction. "We haven't climbed the staircase yet," Williams said. "We had some chances to win Saturday, but we didn't do it. But we've taken steps forward.

O'Brien's got to part with the hair Michael O'Brien (Guest Opinion, Sept. 16): Grow up and get a job. Being a male with long hair is something you have control over. You compared yourself to African-Americans or Hispanics. Their skin color is out of their control, and cannot be changed. I have been disabled and confined to a wheelchair for over 10 years, yet I have been working and successfully promoted since I was able to go back to work over eight years ago. Sure, there's discrimination out there over many things that people have no control over, but if everyone made up excuses, this country would be a sad place.

A confident Buddy Ryan came out of his interview with Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Hugh Culverhouse all but claiming he was returning home merely to change suits for the news conference anticipated later this week to name a replacement at head coach for fired Richard Williamson. "You know me. I always think I'm the leading candidate," said Ryan, the smug and successful former coach of the Eagles. "I'm always going to win, and I'm always going to be the leading candidate. It's a great opportunity, and it seems like a fit. Most teams that lose need an attitude adjustment, and I do my best work adjusting attitudes.

From the opening kickoff, which was returned 91 yards for a touchdown by Spring-Ford's Mike Moser, Friday night's Pioneer Athletic Conference football game between the Rams and host Upper Perkiomen wasn't much of a contest. Yet the game stood out for both teams as a symbol of where they have been, where they are, and where they may be headed. Spring-Ford 46, Upper Perkiomen 6. The season has been as good for the Rams (8-2 overall, 8-1 conference) as it has been bad for the overmatched Indians, who finished 1-9, 1-8. "We just had such an awful year [3-9]

GREGG GILLIS, the mix-mashing male artist ironically known as Girl Talk, is usually pegged as a major player in the "EDM" (electronic dance music) camp. "But I've always felt as connected with rock, pop and hip-hop as with electronic, never wanted to pick a side," Gillis shared the other day from home base in Pittsburgh. "And I'm much happier playing at diversified festivals like Made in America than at a straight up EDM festival where people come for the atmosphere and the party and it's easy [for an artist]

MONTREAL - The Flyers were outhustled, outshot and outplayed in their 5-1 spanking by the Montreal Canadiens in Game 3. Turns out their minds weren't focused, either, coach Peter Laviolette said in a roundabout way. At practice Friday, there was an attitude adjustment, said Laviolette, whose team leads the Eastern Conference finals, two games to one, heading into Saturday afternoon's contest at the raucous Bell Centre. "Our attitude was a little more crisp today," he said.

The Flyers downplayed Chris Pronger's hand injury - the defenseman is questionable for Saturday night's game in Ottawa - and were more concerned about their uneven play in recent games. In fact, after Friday's practice in Voorhees, general manager Paul Holmgren went so far as to say the players needed "a bit of an attitude adjustment" as the team heads toward the last six weeks of the regular season. As for Pronger, he missed Friday's practice because his right hand was still swollen and he was having a difficult time gripping a stick.

Frank Casey, coach of Devon Prep's baseball team, couldn't explain the reason for the lethargic way his team looked early last week. Casey said it was just a case of "senior-itis," a laziness that afflicts high school seniors when spring comes around. Well, one tough practice and an 8-3 nonleague victory over Sun Valley on Friday seem to have cured whatever ailed Devon Prep. "There was too much joking around, we had some senior-itis, (that's) what we called it," said Devon senior Brian Casey, the coach's son. "We weren't willing to work.
