         DAVID FALK is profiled in this morning's WASHINGTON TIMES
    under the headline: "Super Agent Falk slam-dunks NBA."  Bart
    Hubbach writes, "Among basketball agents, the pecking order
    begins with Falk."  Falk represents two of the top six '94 draft
    picks and at least three first rounders.  But many around the
    league "wonder if Falk is becoming too influential, questioning
    whether an agent ... should be able to dictate a team's moves"
    (WASHINGTON TIMES, 10/4)....The Univ. of Michigan athletic
    department has announced its plan to build a $5M tennis facility
    that will be named after Lions owner WILLIAM FORD (DETROIT FREE
    PRESS, 10/3).... RANDALL "TEX" COBB appeared on CNBC's "Business
    Insiders," and defended allegations made last year in Sports
    Illustrated that he participated in "fixing" a fight.  Cobb said
    the allegations have affected his boxing and acting careers: "I'm
    finished in the boxing field, I can't get another fight. .... I'm
    some poor boy, swinging to try to stay alive, and I can't get a
    job anywhere" (CNBC, 10/3).
