Contents - Mad Scramble For The Super Bowl (These NFL Playoff Sweepstakes have everybody guessing. So we've gathered together all the best guesses as to who will make it to the Super Bowl - and why. Take your pick), Why I Hate The Super Bowl & Why I Love The Super Bowl (Two very different views from the sideline. The great debate rages on), Seeing Red In Alabama (The University of Alabama has one of the best college basketball teams in the country. But not everyone in Alabama is happy about that. Some folks are screaming "Foul"), Stastny, Stastny And More Stastny (The NHL has it's share of brother acts, but none like this one. When Peter, Anton and Marian Stastny take the ice together they become the most feared line in hockey. And the farthest from home), Every Team Wants One Of These (A funny-looking guy in horned rim glasses by the name of Kurt Rambis popped up in the NBA playoffs last year in the middle of the champion Lakers' starting lineup. He's bulky, he's slow and he's white - but he, and others like him, are suddenly all the rage in the NBA), Anatomy Of The Knockout (What does it feel like to get knocked out in the ring? And what really happens on the inside when a fighter is detached from his senses. A look at one of the most widely discussed and least understood phenomena in sports), Boxing's Greatest Hits (A scorecard to the hardest, the fastest and the strangest knockouts in history), A New King In Memphis (The amazing Keith Lee is the hottest thing in Memphis since Elvis himself. At 6-10, 195, he shoots like a forward, passes like a point guard, gets more points than Sampson and more reboungs that Ewing. On his skinny legs, he just might carry Memphis State to the Final Four. And this king is only 20 years old), Interview: Howard Sluser (He's one of the most controversial men in sports. Of all the agents in sports, Slusher is the one who raises the most commotion - and elicits the most emotion. The owners hate him; the players love him; the fans don't know what to think. It all depends on how you look at it. Have a look) Departments - Fanfare, Sport Talk, Sport Quiz, Extra Points

Contents - Ban The DH (The designated hitter has been with us for 10 years now. And that's 10 years too many, says this impassioned plea. Save the game. Ban the DH. Now. Before it's too late. Before the end of baseball as we know it), Save The DH (Wait, just a minute, says this rational retort. Those pitiful purists remain blind to the benefit of the designated hitter. Baseball is better because of it), The Grim Reaper Meets His Match (Ivan Lendl wins more matches and more money than anyone else in tennis. But he's never won the U.S. Open and never come close at Wimbledon. And Wimbledon is staring him in the face again. What's the problem?), Inciting A Patriot Rebellion (When Ron Meyer marched in as head coach of the New England Patriots, the troops rebelled. But on the battlefield, they won more than they lost. If Meyer won't stand pat and the Pats can't stand Meyer...well, the '83 campaign will be a very curious war), Honor Thy Father (Most fathers wouldn't want their sons to grow up to be boxers, but most fathers aren't former heavyweight champions. Joe Frazier not only encourages his sons, he trains them, manages them and tucks 'em in at night. Welcome to a very strange household), Playing Cards With Whitey (More than a few baseball people will tell you that Whitey Herzog of St. Louis is the best manager in the game. Well, okay, but just what does that mean? Have a seat in the Cardinals' dugout and find out), A Little Black Book (Managers like to keep a book on other managers. And one of them let us take a peek at his), America Makes A Run At The Mile (It's been a long time since the U.S. held the spotlight in track's glamour event. But now, two American milers, Steve Scott and Sydney Maree, are dueling with Britain's fabled Coe and Ovett - and there's an Olympic gold gleam in their eyes), Interview: Bill Walsh (Two years ago he won the Super Bowl and his name was Genius. Last year his 49ers bombed and his name was Mud. Is this man a brain or a burnout? Let him explain) Departments - Fanfare, Sport Talk, Sport Quiz, Finish Line

Contents - The 1983 College Football Preview (We've hit the books and done our homework. Here are the report cards), The Next Superstar (Ultra-talented Marcus Dupree of the Oklahoma Sooners could become the first sophmore in history to win the Heisman Trophy. The only hitch could be: Marcus Dupree), The SPORT Top 20 (Sometimes the schedule makers tilt the rankings more than players and more than head coaches. For example, there's an awfully talented team in Ann Arbor, and there's an awfully tough coach in Norman, but there's an awfully soft schedule in Knoxville), Conference-By-Conference (Every team gets ranked and graded, from dynasty to doormat. The Hogs get an A, the Terps get a B, the Rebs get a C and the Ducks get a D), Ten Questions (Who's the sleeper team. Who's the worst team. What about 'Bama without the Bear? Get your answers here), Arm Wrestling For A Pennant (The Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers have been at each other's throats all season. If you look at their ages and look at their farms, this war could last for years. But the key is to look at their arms), The Sudden Rise Of Noah's Arc (When Frenchman Yannick Noah won the French Open, a national hero was anointed. If Noah should win the upcoming U.S. Open - and he could - an international star would be born. And tennis would be changed), Setting Free The Bears (The Chicago Bears have a great tradition. Unfortunately, that's the only great thing they've had in a long, long time. But hark. First came Mike Ditka, and then came Jim McMahon, and now...the backwards Bears are ready to enter the Eighties), He's Stranger Than His Rangers (Doug Rader arrived in Texas with a renegade reputation, a terrible temper and zero experience as a major league manager. And he was handed one of the worst teams in baseball. They're not anymore), Interview: Bowie Kuhn (Despite a career of ducking the spotlight, Bowie Kuhn has landed in controversy. Meet the man who's presided over - some say, watched from the grandstand - baseball's most tumultuous years) Departments - Fanfare, Sport Talk, Sport Quiz, Finish Line

Contents - They're Playing Rookie Roulette (Even the best young quarterbacks need a few years before they're ready to start in the NFL. Todd Blackledge know this. He's patient. John Elway doesn't. He's different), The '83-'84 NHL Preview (Don Cherry, MHL-coach-turned-raconteur, presents his ice picks - pointed as always. Here's why...the Bruins could burn out...the Rangers are in doubt...the Red Wings will rise...the Sabres will surprise. And, of course, who will win the cup (need you ask), For Sale: Dave Parker (Just a few years ago, many hailed Dave Parker as the best player in baseball, including the Pirates who gave him a fat contract. Then things went bad. Now the Bucs are back, Parker is up - and so is his contract), The Next Great American Hero (Why isn't welterweight phenom Mark Breland already cashing in? Because that's not in the script. The script reads: '84 Olympics, Gold Medal, Madison Ave, Watch out), Taming The Mouth From The South (To hear Ben Bennett talk, you'd think he's the best college QB since Jim McMahon. And, says the record books, he just may be), No More Cleveland Jokes (The Cleveland Cavaliers have long been the laughingstock of the NBA. Not any more. They'll still lose - but nobody will laugh), Ten Things You Never Knew About The World Series (...And didn't even know to ask. Now you do), The Strange Ways Of John McKay (It's not been easy for a head coach in the NFL to be obscure. But somehow this man remains unscrutable. Take a closer look at Tampa Bay's John McKay, who'd rather you didn't), Interview: Mark Gastineau (He's an awesome talent - and an awful hot dog. The New York Jets' showy sack-dancer has made himself the best-known defensive player in the NFL - and the least liked. Oh, he knows you don't like him, but he's not going to change his ways) Departments - Fanfare, Sport Talk, Sport Quiz, Finish Line

Contents - Just Crazy About The Raiders (When Lyle Alzado got traded for an eighth-round draft pick, he got mad. And he was already crazy. Fortunately, he got traded to the Raiders and now he's just one of the guys. On one of the best defenses in football), The 1984 College Basketball Preview (Settle down, class, there's a lesson today. On the way things will go in the NCAA. The conferences are rated, with the ACC on top. Plus a preseason look at the cream of each crop. We tout our Top 20 with strength of conviction. And then 20 more with surprise predilection. Come April this tourney determines each fate. And there at the top will be, yes, Memphis State), Same Conference, Different Worlds (It hardly seems fair; Texas A&M, with the highest paid coach, and most rabid alumni in the land, competing in the same Southwest Conference with Rice University, the Texas answer to the Ivy League. But, hey, that's football; and in Texas, that's life), Keeping The Celtics Green (Why would anyone of sound mind buy a basketball team - even if it's the Boston Celtics? Certainly not to make a furtune. An inside look at the tricky business of keeping your head above the rim in the NBA) Sweet Dreams For Every Team (It's winter, and to a baseball fan, come spring, hope's eternal. Presenting our Hot Stove Special: the best and the brightest minor league talents. And one of these guys is on his way to rescue your team), Joe Cribbs Pays His Bills (A month after the NFL season ends, Joe Cribbs will start running in the USFL. But don't let him hear you say lame duck. Before he goes, Cribbs wants to leave Buffalo something to remember him by - his best season yet), Interview: Billy Smith (Best money goaltender in hockey? Not much argument. Nastiest player in the game? No argument. But there are lots of opinions on Bad Billy, including his own. And here they are, straight from the goal mouth) Departments - Danfare, Sports Talk, Sports Quiz, Finish Line
