These reforms will help ensure that student-athletes are treated fairly and that intercollegiate athletics are placed in their proper perspective.

In the article (Boffo Buffs! Nov. 13) on Colorado's 27-21 victory over Nebraska, you described Gerry Gdowski as "a competent, if uninspiring, Nebraska quarterback." This young man has waited in the wings for three years to prove himself, and he has done so in a most inspiring way. He finished the regular season with 1,326 yards passing and 925 yards rushing. What's more, he has a 3.56 grade point average, and he is a very humble team player. He's someone I would be glad to have my son emulate.
After reading the article (A Man in Command, Oct. 30) describing baseball commissioner Fay Vincent's actions and thoughts concerning the earthquake and the World Series, I feel safe in the knowledge that our national pastime is in excellent hands. I also submit that Vincent has all the qualities necessary for your Sportsman of the Year honor.
