Gary Gibbs inherited a scandal-ridden program, cleaned it up and led Oklahoma to six straight winning seasons. It still wasn't enough. Gibbs, who couldn't win the big games and championships that Oklahoma fans have come to expect, resigned Monday. "I've taken a bunch of bullet holes the past 51.

years," he said. "This is a better program today than it was in '89." Gibbs made the announcement during his weekly news conference after talking briefly about Friday's game against No. 1 Nebraska. Just last week, he had denied reports he would step down. He said he would coach through a bowl game, most likely the Copper Bowl on Dec.

Police staked out the suburban Detroit home of manager Jackie Kallen and the Ann Arbor home of Toney's mother, Sherri, on Sunday, but the boxer never showed up, said police in Oakland County's West Bloomfleld Township. "Anytime we get a threat like that we take it very seriously, especially when there's a weapon involved," police Chief Ron Cronin said.

Korea By Merrill Goozner Tribune Staff Writer TOKYO In a new sign of North Korea's thawing relations with the West, state-run radio announced Monday that the Pyongyang regime would sponsor a mass sports and cultural festival in April that will feature heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman. Former heavyweight champ Muhammad Ali, 52, also will take part in the event, which will focus on gymnastics and an art festival, according to the report But the highlight will be a match pitting the 45-year-old Foreman, a folk hero to middle-aged Asian men, against 51-year-old Kanji Inoki, a former wrestler turned politician who now sits in Japan's upper house of parliament Inoki suggested the festival during a trip to North Korea to visit his mentor, Kim Sin Rak, who led a pro wrestling boom in Japan in the 1950s. The broadcast said tourists coming to North Korea for the games will be able to visit various cultural sites around the isolated country, including Mt.

Paekdu, the mountain bordering China that is the mythical home of the Korean people and holds a place in Korean life similar to Mt Fuji in Japan. Inoki arranged the event during a visit last month to Beijing, where he met with North Korean officials. gave New York a 5-0 all-time record against the Oilers. The former Wheaton North and Ohio State star threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Mike Sherrard and set up Treadwell's first field goal, a 26-yarder, with a 55-yard pass to Sherrard. i "We were just throwing the ball up high, giving him a chance to come down with it" Graham said.

"It was frustrating early on. I just want to keep getting better every week. "It's huge right now, just to get us on the right track," Graham said. "This will be good for us." "It's nice to see them get some reward for all the hard work they've put in," New York coach Dan Reeves said. The Giants ended their longest losing streak, since 1980.

New York led 10-7 with 8:19 to play, but the Oilers tied it with 4:08 left on Al Del Greco's 42-yard field goal Fisher turned the play-calling over to offensive coordinator Dick Coury, but the Oilers didn't get into the end zone until 4:44 remained in the third quarter on Tolliver's 1-yard keeper. Packers' White hurt, likely out of Dallas game From Tribune Wires Reggie White could miss a game for the first time in his celebrated career Thursday when the Packers play the Cowboys in Dallas. The Green Bay defensive end underwent an MRI test Monday to determine whether his elbow injury from Sunday's 29-20 loss at Buffalo was a torn or sprained ligament The Packers didn't immediately release results of White's MRI taken Monday. But his agent, Jimmy Sexton, of Memphis, said White told him he'd be out two to four weeks. Sexton told the Milwaukee Sentinel that White indicated there were torn ligaments, but that he won't need surgery.

White was hurt midway through the third quarter Sunday while tackling Buffalo's Thurman Thomas. He did not return and his arm was placed in a hard cast "I strained or tore some ligaments in my elbow," White said. "My arm got caught between Thurman's helmet and whoever made the tackle (Fred Strickland. I thought it was broken at first Thank God it wasn't" White, the career NFL sack leader with 143, has never missed a game due to injury in his 10-year career, discounting games in which strike-breaking players were used. The Packers also lost safety Tim Hauck to a knee injury Sunday.

Coach Paul Holmgren said Biuck "could be out three to four weeks." rioira TO ESSJ CUSTOMS On November 18, 1994, AT8T filed tariff revisions with the Federal Communications Commission to make the following changes to the AW PROWATS service, effective December 2, 1994: Reduction of AW PRO WATS, ALL PRO WATS, and PRO ACAP usage volume discounts to 10 for usage charges over $200 for international CIID891 Card billed in Hawaii where billing is available; for usage charges over $2,000 for domestic direct dial; and for usage charges over $50,000 for international direct dial.

HOUSTON New coach, same result for the Houston Oilers. David Treadwell kicked a 37-yard field goal with 2 seconds to play Monday night to help the New York Giants snap a seven-game losing streak with a 13-10 victory over the Oilers, who lost for the seventh Giants 13 straight time. Oilers 10 loss its third in a row and sixth of the season by three points ruined the coaching debut of Jeff Fisher, who replaced Jack Pardee last Monday and ditched Houston's run-and-shoot offense. The result was a plodding running attack and a mundane game between two teams having all sorts of problems. "It's not the way I wanted to start off," Fisher said.

"But we'll take tomorrow off and then come back and start getting ready for the next game."

Monday's move, which wasn't announced publicly but was confirmed by several officials, means owners will gather just two days before the deadline for teams to offer salary arbitration to their former players who became free agents. Owners don't want another winter of arbitration and are set on eliminating the process, which began in 1974. Acting Commissioner Bud Selig didn't return a telephone call seeking comment but management negotiator John Harrington has said it is possible owners will decide at that meeting to attempt to impose the Briefs Colleges: Ohio University used a pair of victories in the Preseason NTT to vault into the AP Top 25 for the first time since 1969-70.
