As for Rookie of the Year, the name below should give you an idea of who I support. Thanks for the April 30 cover of the other Jeff George, the Colts' quarterback (who is not related to me), as the NFL's No. 1 draft pick.
Who is Dr. Z anyway? He didn't even prescribe Neal Anderson of the Bears for his offensive lineup. I'm changing doctors.
JONATHAN J. SEDORY
Zimmerman left off his list Viking Joey Browner, the best defensive back in the game.
How can Zimmerman's team include such specialists as a receiver-back ( Keith Byars of the Eagles) and a designated sacker ( Charles Haley of the 49ers), but leave out a special-teams specialist (Reyna Thompson of the Giants)?

WHO'S IN WHO'S WHO
I take exception to Rick Reilly's Point After in your Dec. 17 issue. The publishers of Who's Who in America neither arbitrarily select individuals for, nor remove them from, this reference work. To ensure that our users have information on individuals of current reference interest, our editors continuously update the standards for inclusion for each edition. To ensure that our users have accurate information, we rely on the participation of our listees. In addition, the names that Reilly mentions as missing from our current edition can be found in the previous edition of Who's Who in America. This allows our users to find the information they want, because many libraries and information centers keep back editions of our publication.

KANSAS, COACHES AND RECORDS
Alexander Wolff noted in Carolina Kids (Dec. 17) that North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith, "by averaging 25 wins a season between now and 1994, would surpass his old college coach, Kansas's Phog Allen (left), for second place, behind Adolph Rupp (center), on the Division I victory list." Of interest is the fact that Rupp also played at Kansas, although he didn't coach there. Kansas's only coach with a losing record was James Naismith (right), the inventor of the game.
