The Cubs and Red Sox will be in the Fall Classic, where Bill Buckner will be World Series MVP. The NBA players will be single parents just barely getting by while working the night shift to feed three kids and pay the rent.

The Lug Nut Tech starting quarterback under Lou Holtz will be Steve Spurrier, who will go on to coach Widget University, the only school Lug Nut manages to beat every season.

Ernie Banks will have three World Series MVPs. Bill McCartney will come back as a poor, pregnant, unwed teenage girl. Bill Bradley will have a personality. Joe Paterno, Dean Smith and John Wooden will come back as saints. And Rick Reilly will come back as a 98-pound teenager who flunks English, doesn't get the girl and has to drop out of Fairview High.
Rev. Dr. Mark W. Jennings, Augusta, Mich.
