(( Possible evidence of a crime was captured on the cockpit voice recorder... a cryptic comment from one of the pilots...made just BEFORE the jet plunged in a fatal dive. Sources say a voice...believed to be that of the co-pilot...can be heard on the tape saying a prayer -- words to the effect of "I have made my decision. I put my fate in God's hands". But interpreters can't agree on what THAT means. Some see it as benign -- part of a daily prayer routine. Others suggest it was a deliberate prelude to the crash that followed.
Officials believe the co-pilot was alone in the cockpit at the time, but THERE IS YET ANOTHER MYSTERY...investigators aren't entirely certain WHO WAS IN THE CO-PILOTS SEAT. EgyptAir says it should have been Adel Anwar. But sources say those who've reviewed the tape believe they hear the voice of Gamal El-Batoty... the co-pilot scheduled to fly the second half of the New York to Cairo trip.
Whoever said the prayer...the timing is troublesome. Just afterwards the jet began a steep high speed dive. The recording then picked up what sounds like the captain returning to the cockpit. He urges the co-pilot to "pull with me" -- a command directed at trying to save the plane. Instead the flight data recorder suggests the pilots may have worked against each other. The elevators on the tail... used to move the jet up and down...split in OPPOSITE directions -- perhaps a subtle sign of a cockpit struggle. BOB ORR/CBS NEWS: Investigators haven't reached any final conclusions...but they strongly suspect the crash was caused by the deliberate actions of the co-pilot.
And administration officials say it's most likely he acted alone. There is no evidence pointing to a broader plot...and no evidence of terrorism.))

The Owls knocked Tech from the ranks of the unbeaten and out of the top 10 with a 28-to-24 upset win at Lane Stadium.

And just to make things a little more interesting this year. This 1999 Temple team is much better than the one that shocked the Hokies last year.

Boston's Pedro Martinez is the Baseball Writers of America's choice for the American League Cy Young award.

Martinez was 23 and 4 this past season with a two point .07 ERA. He joins Randy Johnson and Gaylord Perry as the only three pitchers to win the award in both leagues. He lead the AL with 313 strike outs and is a good guess for the MVP award which should be announced shortly.
