NAMES IN THE NEWS

     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).
