Running back Eric Dickerson of the Rams said that he is through talking about his scandal-plagued alma mater, Southern Methodist University.

In a speech before the Boys Town Athletic Boosters in Nebraska last Thursday, Dickerson said publicly for the first time that he received money while attending SMU.

Dickerson did not deny the comments Monday at Rams Park in Anaheim.

"If I needed 5 or 10 dollars, yeah, they'd give it to me," Dickerson said.

But he declined further comment and added that he had no intention of relaying any information to the National Collegiate Athletic Assn.'s infractions committee.

"What is the NCAA going to do to me?" Dickerson asked. "I'm not going to ruin someone else's career. I'm not going to say anything to the NCAA."
