WOMEN'S SPORTS: An ABL record crowd of 15,213 attended the Xplosion-Blizzard game at the Hartford Civic Center on Saturday. The previous ABL record crowd was 12,623 at the Civic Center for the Blizzard's season opener against the Glory in October (HARTFORD COURANT, 1/4)....Also on Saturday, 24,597 watched in Knoxville, TN, as the Univ of TN beat the Univ. of CT. It was the largest crowd ever to see a women's college game, topping the old mark of 24,563 set in '87 when TN hosted TX (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 1/4). NFL: Commissioner Paul Tagliabue contributed an op-ed in Sunday's N.Y. TIMES on the league's goal of "sound equal employment policies." Tagliabue: "All of us in football -- professional and college -- must do better in identifying top coaching talent from a diverse, growing pool, including African-Americans and those from other minority groups." He challenged NFL owners and collegiate execs to "be innovative in their approaches to finding and developing coaching talent" (Paul Tagliabue, N.Y. TIMES, 1/4).
