From where he stands now, Aaron Emanuel is going to have trouble making the New York Giants' roster as a running back. The sidelines have that effect on rookies, and Emanuel is uncertain when he will get back on the field. The seventh-round draft pick from Southern Cal missed his second practice in a row earlier this week because of a pinched nerve in his neck.

It was 10:30 at night when UCLA senior safety Ben Emanuel II heard loud banging on the door of his Westwood apartment. Looking outside, he saw his older cousin, Aaron Emanuel, and he knew that he was in for it. "I had spoken with his father and we were worried about him," said Aaron Emanuel, a former USC tailback who has been a sounding board for his cousin ever since Ben left Houston to enroll at UCLA in 2000. "It was shortly after spring ball and he had not returned any of my calls.

There are a lot of big questions to be asked and answered on Los Angeles sports pages and talk shows these days, but there is one question that suddenly seems bigger than any other. Why do women keep throwing beer in Aaron Emanuel's face? Here he is, a big man on campus. Literally, a big man. A 6-foot 2-inch, 220-pound USC football player. A running back with a great body, great speed and great potential. He also is supposed to be this wonderful kid. He is the son of a Baptist minister.

You're Aaron Emanuel, you're 17 and life's a bowl of cherries. After a career as a superstar running back at Quartz Hill High School that included 4,807 yards rushing, 54 touchdowns and prep All-American honors, you had to switch from fending off tacklers to fending off recruiters. They came from everywhere, even a governor's mansion. But the highlight had to be when Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne came calling. In a limo.

Aaron Emanuel had difficulty turning his head Monday while walking on campus. Whenever someone hailed him, he had to turn his entire body in acknowledgement. Emanuel said he had a stiff neck as the result of the blows he absorbed from UCLA Saturday during USC's 31-22 victory that clinched a berth in the Rose Bowl game. It's assumed that there are also a few Bruins who are sore from colliding with Emanuel.

So far this football season, there has been something for everybody in the USC backfield, especially at tailback. The Trojan Heisman Trophy candidate is out of position this season--he is a quarterback instead of the usual tailback--but the land of former winners Garrett, Simpson, White and Allen still is the land of opportunity.

Considering the circumstances, it would have been understandable if Aaron Emanuel had transferred to another school. Get out of town, away from the notoriety that wasn't attained on the football field, but for punching a female student. Emanuel said he considered not returning to USC, where he might be constantly reminded of what he says was a mistake. "I was upset about what happened and the way things unfolded," Emanuel said. "(Transferring) was one of the first things I thought about."

When Ted Tollner came to USC as an offensive coordinator under John Robinson in 1982, the traditional tailback assembly line was still moving, but the product was not up to its usual high standards. Marcus Allen, the last Heisman Trophy winner, was gone and a committee operated at the position, partly because of injuries, but also because no one emerged as a dominant running back. It was the same in 1983, when Tollner became head coach.

A jury in Pasadena Municipal Court Friday found USC football player Aaron Emanuel guilty of hitting Sharon Hatfield at a party but not guilty of striking Tammy Baird in an incident in a bar. In the Hatfield case, the jury reduced the charge from battery with serious bodily injury to a charge of simple battery. Emanuel, a sophomore tailback for USC last season, was charged with slugging Hatfield, 23, at a party May 3. Hatfield was knocked unconscious and suffered a concussion.
