BUCS TRUSTEE TELLS PROSPECTIVE BUYERS: BUCS ARE NOT FOR SALE

     Steve Story, trustee of the late Hugh Culverhouse's estate,
announced that no offers will be solicited and no offers will be
accepted for the Buccaneers, according to a report in this
morning's TAMPA TRIBUNE.  Story said that decision came after he
met with Joy Culverhouse on Friday:  "The Bucs are not on the
block.  This stance is not just for this season, but for the
foreseeable future as well."  Bucs coach Sam Wyche said that he
and the players were "relieved" by the decision: "I told the team
-- there was applause all around."  The TAMPA TRIBUNE's Tom
McEwen writes that the announcement "put to rest" concerns that
the Bucs would be "sold and shipped to Baltimore or St. Louis or
Sacramento or Orlando" (Tom McEwen, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 9/12).
