Sam Jankovich, signing a 1988-93 renewal as Miami (Fla.) athletic director, commented on two football opponents this fall, Maryland and South Carolina, who decided not to schedule the Hurricanes anymore. Maryland Athletic Director Lew Perkins, after the game, accused the Hurricanes of running up the score (46-16).

"We are really not interested in scheduling the University of Maryland, either," Jankovich said. He said Miami prefers opponents who understand that "if you get beat pretty bad, it's more because of what you did than what the opponent did."

He went on, "Those schools who decide not to schedule us for any reason, we'll just work that much harder . . . to prove our commitment to excellence both on and off the field," adding that he hopes he'll be able to keep Jimmy Johnson as football coach. Johnson (40-8 at Miami) has expressed interest in coaching in the NFL . . .

Miami's basketball coach, Bill Foster, has his arm in a sling. Waving for a foul call during a 110-107 victory over Alabama State on Monday night, he dislocated his left shoulder.

"It pops out every once in a while," said Foster. The last time was in 1980, when his Clemson team was beating North Carolina . . .
