    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=610 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top width=450>[font=Verdana,Arial, Helvetica]MIAMI -- An arbitration ruling that ordered Ricky Williams to repay the Miami Dolphins $8.6 million was upheld Tuesday by a federal judge, who rejected arguments that the award disregarded Florida law and was excessive.

    U.S. District Judge James Cohn ruled arbitrator Richard Bloch was ``well within the scope of his authority'' in his interpretation of the case.

Bloch ruled in September that under the terms of the contract, he was required to repay the Dolphins $8.6 million in bonus money he had received.

    Jeffrey Kessler, representing the NFL Players Association, argued at a hearing Friday in Fort Lauderdale that the ruling should be vacated. He didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment on the ruling.

    Williams, whose retirement sent the Dolphins reeling to a 4-12 season, has been studying holistic medicine at a small college near Sacramento, Calif. He recently said he's enjoying retirement.

    Kessler said last week he didn't know whether Williams had the money to repay the Dolphins.

    University of Texas running back Cedric Benson is concerned that his stock in the NFL draft could be affected negatively if team officials feel that he and former Dolphins' back Ricky Williams have a similar personality. "Ricky's a guy I looked up to on the field," Benson told the Dallas Morning News in December. "The decisions he made are the decisions he made. I make my own decisions. I don't have the same game plan he does. For starters, I'm ready to play football. I have a passion for the game." Views
    Benson recently cut his dreadlocks in hopes that it would fight off comparisons between he and Williams. Does this mean he won't be posing for a magazine cover while wearing a bridal gown? Speaking of magazines, assuming he doesn't pop up on the cover of High Times between now and draft day, Benson will likely be selected with a top-five overall pick. In fact, more than one draft expert is predicting that the Dolphins will select Cedric with the No. 2 overall pick, which explains why he is so paranoid (hmmm) about the comparisons to Williams.
