The room fell silent. Everyone knew that Delaware's name would pop up on the television screen eventually, but through each commercial break, the blue-and-yellow-clad fans packed inside the Carpenter Sports Building for the Blue Hens' selection-show viewing party stayed on the edge of their seats. The crowd let out a collective sigh of relief as Delaware (25-9), the Colonial Athletic Association champion, avoided a matchup with Louisville. But when the No. 13 Blue Hens saw their name appear under fourth-seeded Michigan State (26-8)

When Michigan State takes on Penn State on Saturday, the Spartans will bring the momentum from allowing defending national champion Ohio State only 132 yards and five first downs. Those numbers don't bode well for a Penn State team still seeking its offensive identity after 11 games, most recently a 28-16 loss to Michigan. Even Penn State's ever-positive coach James Franklin knows what his offense will face against the Spartans. "They're big and physical and long on the defensive line.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - There were moments during Penn State's regular-season finale against No. 10 Michigan State when it appeared as if the Nittany Lions could play with the Spartans. But there were more times that the Spartans clearly looked like the better team. Michigan State proved the latter point on the scoreboard Saturday, using two touchdowns in a span of 2 minutes, 55 seconds in the third quarter to spark a 34-10 victory that spoiled the Lions' senior day festivities at Beaver Stadium.

Penn State offensive coordinator Fran Ganter had the rich contract in his hand and his mind made up. Before he went to bed Thursday night, he decided that he would leave Joe Paterno's staff after 24 years to become head coach at Michigan State. But after a restless night, Ganter, 45, had a change of heart. He decided to turn down what he admitted was a golden opportunity. "I woke up Friday morning and told my wife it just doesn't feel right," Ganter said yesterday, after the Nittany Lions' first practice for the Jan. 2 Rose Bowl against Oregon.

As the unquestioned leader of the Penn State offense, Christian Hackenberg knows he must keep a tight focus on preparing for the next game, making sure there are no distractions getting in the way of the Nittany Lions for them to perform at their best on Saturday. The junior quarterback, however, provided an interesting perspective this week as the Lions prepared for their final regular-season game, at No. 6 Michigan State. "We're just focused on Penn State and what we need to do to continue to have a great season and win another football game," he said this week.

Tom Izzo was somber after his team's first setback of the season. J.P. Tokoto had 12 points and a career-high 10 rebounds to help North Carolina beat top-ranked Michigan State, 79-65, Wednesday night in East Lansing, Mich. "One of the more disappointing performances of my career here," Izzo said. "From the jump ball, they kind of took it to us. " The Tar Heels were in control from the start, never trailed, and used a 12-1 run to take a 65-52 lead with 6 minutes, 2 seconds remaining.

Hard to believe it's only Sept. 17 and we're just into the third week of a 15-week college football season but we're already talking about potential playoff elimination games. The top three teams in this week's Associated Press poll all face games on the road against ranked opponents: No. 1 Alabama at No. 19 Mississippi, second-ranked Florida State at No. 10 Louisville, and No. 3 Ohio State at 14th-ranked Oklahoma. What's even more heavenly is that no two contests are being televised at the same time.

Ryan Bates is the new guy this season on the Penn State offensive line, an athletic 6-foot-4, 305-pound guard who worked diligently during his redshirt year to claim a spot in the starting lineup. But football almost ended for Bates, a graduate of Archbishop Wood High School in Bucks County, before it even began when he made a big decision - in seventh grade. "I quit football in seventh grade," Bates said Wednesday on a conference call with reporters. "I didn't play in seventh and eighth grade.

MIKE KERN'S TOP 10 1. Alabama: So you were expecting maybe Bowling Green? It's never easy being preseason favorite. And Tide have to go to Mississippi - which has beaten them the last two years - in September, to Tennessee - which they've beaten nine straight times - in October and to LSU - which they've beaten five in a row - in early November. But they are going for fifth ring in nine years. 2. Clemson: Has to go to Florida State, where it hasn't won in a decade, in late October.

It's not always easy for a quarterback and receiver to get on the same page. It takes precision timing, a strong feel for each other's abilities, and lots of practice reps. This year in Southeastern Pennsylvania, a number of top-notch signal-callers and rock-solid pass catchers have that special bond. It should translate into plenty of eye-popping aerial hookups. Last season's most prolific passer is back. Stephen Sturm threw for a whopping 3,100 yards and 31 touchdowns while leading Perkiomen Valley to a 10-2 record and the PIAA District 1 Class 4A quarterfinals.

MARCH 26, 2001   The clock blinked toward the inevitable, and when the numbers told him he was done, the old man got up off one knee and let the last shout die in his throat, stillborn. And then, with his my-feet-are-killing-me gait, he limped to the opponents' bench, there to hand over his sword and shake the conquerors' hands. Close again. So close. So achingly, tantalizingly, this-isn't-fair close. Temple lost to Michigan State, 69-62, yesterday. It only lost on the scoreboard, though.

PHIL MARTELLI calls them the bluebloods. You know, the royalty of the college basketball universe: North Carolina, Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Michigan State. The usual suspects. None of them has won 91 of its last 104 games, as Villanova has, even if the only numbers many folks get hung up on are 2-2, which is 'Nova's record in the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons, first as a No. 2 seed and then a No. 1. Martelli doesn't happen to be one of those people. He views things differently, because of the way the Wildcats are getting it done.

Some thoughts on this year's tournament: Every NCAA tournament needs a Holy Cross . . . . . . or some variation of a Holy Cross. This version won zero road games during the Patriot League regular season, 0-9, then won four straight road games in the Patriot League tournament. That just doesn't happen, until it happened. Welcome to March. Bill Carmody, once the Princeton coach, had some near misses trying to get Northwestern to the tournament. Here he is, coaching Holy Cross. Player to enjoy as long as he lasts.

THERE IS NO reason to get frustrated with the NCAA Tournament selection committee's bracket because it is an annual mystery. However, its members may have outdone themselves this year. Why did they flip regions for Xavier and Villanova when keeping them near home would have balanced the bracket and given both site advantages they earned with No. 2 seeds? Kansas was No. 1 on the 68-team seed list, so Xavier as No. 8 would have fit perfectly in the South region in Louisville. Villanova was No. 7 and seemed a perfect seed fit in the East at Wells Fargo Center for North Carolina, which was No. 2 overall.
