RE THE ROONEY Rule: Does the NFL have a policy that you must interview a white coach before you hire a black coach? No. And Tony Dungy or Jim Caldwell had very little to do with the Colts' success - everybody knows Peyton Manning coaches that team. Mike Quinn Philadelphia

York Road is in a time warp. Gamburg's Furniture is up for grabs, and landing at Burt Shepp's salon could cost you more than the price of a new 'do. Forget Atlantic City. The borough has been captured in a board game. It's Monopoly, Hatboro style, in which budding wheeler-dealers can own their favorite hometown shops and collect money from trespassers who land on their properties. The Game of Hatboro will be out this spring, with proceeds benefiting the Hatboro Little League.

Assistant head coach Jim Caldwell would replace Tony Dungy if the Indianapolis Colts coach retires, team owner Jim Irsay said last night. Irsay hopes Dungy will return and expects to speak to him this weekend, the owner said at a party celebrating an exhibition of the Jack Kerouac "On The Road" manuscript he owns at The New York Public Library. Irsay said he might be able to make accommodations for Dungy such as allowing him to attend his son's high school football games in Florida on Friday nights.

Jim Caldwell, the Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks coach, yesterday was promoted to assistant head coach. Caldwell was the coach at Wake Forest from 1993 to 2000 and was on Colts coach Tony Dungy's staff at Tampa Bay in 2001. He came to Indianapolis with Dungy the next season. Caldwell, who played defensive back at Iowa, also was an assistant at Southern Illinois, Northwestern, Colorado, Louisville, and Penn State. He will continue coaching the Colts' quarterbacks.

Brian Walls got a large head start on the college-selection progress. Last summer, he and his parents (Yvette and Dr. O.R. Walls, a veterinarian) went on fact-finding missions to Northwestern, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Temple and Wake Forest. Walls, of Penn Charter, liked what he saw of Wake Forest's campus and what he heard from school personnel. After he played well enough last season to become a first-team Daily News All-City honoree, the 6-3, 255-pound offensive tackle also liked what he heard from coach Jim Caldwell and assistant Pat Flaherty.

Denny Tate, the protagonist of Leslie Lee's Between Now and Then, is definitely not what a contemporary American male is expected to be. Tate is an old-style patriarch, a man who has worked his way out of the ghetto into the black middle class and takes pride in how well he has provided for his family. In return, he demands not only the respect but the obedience of his wife and children. Things being what they were in 1982, when the play is set, he isn't getting it. His wife, whom he wants to stay at home with the family, is determined to return to college.

This originally appeared yesterday by Les Bowen on Eagletarian, the Daily News' Eagles blog, at www.eagletarian.com . INTERESTING developments yesterday that could affect the Eagles, none of them originating from One NovaCare Way. The Falcons hired former 49ers head coach Mike Nolan as their defensive coordinator, eliminating them from the Steve Spagnuolo sweepstakes. So the Spagnuolo picture is clearer? Ahh - not so fast! Turns out Spagnuolo interviewed Monday in Indianapolis for the d-coordinator spot there, with new general manager Ryan Grigson, who left the Eagles for that job last week.

Jim Caldwell is back in the NFL, this time as the Baltimore Ravens' quarterbacks coach. The 57-year-old Caldwell was hired yesterday, less than 2 weeks after he was fired as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts following a 2-14 season. Caldwell went 26-22 in 3 years with Indianapolis, including a Super Bowl appearance. After working with Colts standout quarterback Peyton Manning for 10 seasons, Caldwell will turn his attention toward improving Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco and teaming with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron to strengthen Baltimore's passing game, which ranked 19th this season.

NCAA president Mark Emmert reiterated his support Monday for a two-round, four-team BCS championship playoff. Emmert said there are ongoing discussions about what he described as a Final Four model, a scenario that this season would've matched LSU against Stanford, and Alabama vs. Oklahoma State, with the winners advancing to the title game. Alabama beat LSU, 21-0, to avenge its lone loss and win the championship in a criticized rematch. Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien named Jim Bernhardt as special assistant and director of player development, and Craig Fitzgerald , a La Salle High School graduate whose most recent coaching job was at South Carolina, as director of strength and conditioning.

For a time, Jim Caldwell had an alias - John Curry. He didn't want the phony name, but circumstances at the telegraph office where he worked in central Pennsylvania forced him into it. Caldwell, just a teenager, had been working for a telegraph company sending and receiving messages at a railroad station. One night about 3 a.m., a message came over the wire while he was out giving orders to a switchman. He was fired for sleeping on the job. When he looked for work at another telegraph company, the manager told him there was none and, unaware of Caldwell's job history, called Caldwell's former employer to find the boy a job. In the living room of his Lansdowne apartment Tuesday, the 90-year-old Caldwell related what happened next.
