Pittsburgh Steelers corner-back Rod Woodson, who faces misdemeanor charges in an alleged assault on a police officer, lost an initial bid Wednesday for a trial that wouldn't interfere with the NFL season. Judge Pro Tern Mark Thoma refused to grant a January date, but didn't agree either with a prosecutor's request for a September trial. Woodson's attorney Donald E. James asked for the later date because Woodson will be "busy through the fall." Deputy Prosecutor Mitchell Hicks said the court doesn't have "any other options" than September. Thoma scheduled another hearing June 17 to resolve the matter. Woodson and his brother, Jamie, face misdemeanor charges of battery, and resisting law enforcement stemming from an argument over disconnecting their dying father from life support. Woodson, a former football and track star at Purdue, and his brother, were arrested at the family's home May 19 after two police officers were allegedly struck while attempting to break up a fight. Pepsi deal cuts Coke out atPenn State Associated Pros STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Coke is no longer it at Perm State University. The college has taken the Pepsi Challenge and made the soft-drink company its exclusive soda supplier in exchange for $14 million. Of the $8 million in new money generated by the 10-year deal, $6 million will go toward building the 16,500-seat Academic Athletic Convocation and Events Center. The university library, a minority-affiliated cultural center and 20 outlying campuses will split the remaining $2 million. School officials readily admit their goal at the start of negotiations was to obtain money for the center, where the Perm State basketball team will play and other indoor sports will be staged. But not everyone at the university is happy about it, "The administration is really getting into the business of being in business," said undergraduate student president Robert Kampia. "I thought it was disgusting. It totally annoys me." The idea of corporate sponsorship at universities is nothing new, said Tony DeCrappeo, Penn State's director of grants administration. Penn State received $39 million in sponsored research money this academic year, an amount second only to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But those deals with IBM, 3M, General Motors, Ford, DuPont, Caterpillar and Alcoa aren't restrictive, DeCrappeo said. Penn State doesn't have to use GM or Ford cars, for example. The deal with Pepsi is restrictive. Coca-Cola, which previously had contracts with various departments in the university, including the athletic department, will no longer be sold on' campus. Pepsi will be the sole advertiser at Penn State football games and the main advertiser in the new arena. The events center, to be com- pleted in the mioVl990s, will replace 6,846-seat Recreation Hall. The university's main library will receive $1 million. The Robeson Cultural Center at State College will get $500,000. Outlying Penn State campuses will split the other $500,000.
