*CG file Last Season

The NCAA has taken the first step
in allowing Division One and Division
One Double A schools to play 12
football games each season.

If given final approval the plan
would begin next year with the 2006
season. The NCAA Board of Directors has
the final word on April 28. The ACC
opposed the 12th game idea because the
member schools felt it interfered with
academics - saying the season already
is long enough.

are looking to get back and this time
get a win.

every day... that's the ultimate goal
of every season.)

(Boone: 3:44:02- These guys are trying
to get back there... and make a run at

The Knights will have to rely on much
less experience on the field than last
year having lost 13 players to

graduation. this years team only
features 5 seniors.

Ten students were in the limo when

they say- breaking every traffic rule

They convinced her to pull over and
that's when they called their parents,
who then called 9-1-1.
