I'm glad Billy Tubbs has a sense of humor about the I JOG WITH COACH TUBBS T shirts with tire tracks on the back now being seen on the campus of Oklahoma State. Considering that Tubbs's team hasn't lost to Oklahoma State in two seasons, it would seem he has the last laugh.

I agree with Tim McBride's comments (19TH HOLE, July 18) in praise of the feats of Roberto Duran. Yet I cannot help but think of Henry Armstrong, who won titles in three different weights—feather, welter and light—at a time when there was only one division at most weights (no junior or super) and only one champion (no WBC or WBA, and no inexperienced crown holders). Armstrong also fought middleweight champion Ceferino Garcia to a 10-round draw in a title bout that many thought Armstrong won—amazing for a fighter who first won a crown as featherweight. If Armstrong were fighting today, he would have won six titles and fought for a seventh!
