UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr knows all too well how one decision can affect a football life. There may still be a Matt Barkley-shaped indentation in the Rose Bowl turf to remind him. Barr slammed the USC quarterback to the ground last season, separating his shoulder. Barkley, many believed, would have been a first-round pick had he declared for the NFL draft after his junior season a year earlier. But he returned to USC and wound up being part of Barr's NFL application. It was something Barr recalled, and eventually dismissed, when faced with the same should-I-stay-or-should-I-go moment last December.

The Libertarian Party chose former Republican Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia to be its presidential candidate after six rounds of balloting in Denver. Barr beat research scientist Mary Ruwart on the final ballot. The vote was 324 to 276. Barr endorsed Wayne Allyn Root, who was eliminated in the fifth round, to be his vice-presidential nominee. Barr left the GOP in 2006 over what he called bloated spending and civil liberties intrusions by the Bush administration. Barr said he expects to be on the ballot in at least 48 states.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley could look across the city last season and see the perils of staying in school. Former USC quarterback Matt Barkley , whom many thought to be a first-round pick after his junior season, came back for a senior year. The Trojans finished 7-6. Barkley didn't win the Heisman Trophy. He slipped to the fourth round in the NFL draft last spring. A cautionary tale. BOWL TIMELINE: Matchups, schedule and picks Only, all Hundley has to do is look across the locker room to see the upside to playing another season at UCLA.

REGARDING Martin Miller's article on how "The Sopranos" will end ["Will the Guy Catch a Bullet or a Break?" April 1]: He talks about the end of the first two "Godfather" films and then states, "Sorry, 'Godfather III' doesn't count." Doesn't count? So Michael Corleone losing a child and dying alone doesn't count. Is this the same film that three L.A. Times critics listed as one of their Top 10 films of 1990? Is this the same "Godfather III" that was nominated for seven Academy Awards including best picture and best director?

I am truly concerned about Thursday's House vote [to permit the 10 Commandments to be posted in schools]. I was raised as a Christian and went to a private Lutheran grade school. We had the 10 Commandments posted, as well as many other religious teachings and symbols. I do not have a problem posting these things in private schools. But to single out one particular set of one religion's beliefs as OK to post in all public schools, as well as any other government buildings that a state may designate, is an attack on our Constitution's specific limits on the government's power to establish or promote a religion.

"You know," the family practitioner says, "some very respected physicians will tell you I am crazy."

Put down the leather ball. Pick up the crystal ball. The showdown Saturday between UCLA and USC will give spectators a glimpse of at least a dozen future NFL players, and maybe more. The rosters are packed with prospects, and, in a departure from recent years, there may be more Bruins than Trojans who will wind up playing on Sundays. In recent years, the NFL scales have tipped heavily in favor of USC, which boasts 85 draft picks since 2000, with 37 of those having been selected in the first or second rounds.

Left with an unobstructed path to the quarterback, UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr lifted up USC's Matt Barkley and planted him in the Rose Bowl turf. The play, in the fourth quarter of last year's rivalry game, was the exclamation point in a 38-28 UCLA victory. It was also the unceremonious end of Barkley's roller-coaster college career. He sustained a separated shoulder and did not play in USC's bowl game. "That symbolized where this team was and how we had sort of changed," UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley said this week.

Jordan Zumwalt says playing linebacker for UCLA is a lot of fun. He just has an unusual definition of what fun is. Fun, he said, is "making the guy across from you feel like he doesn't want to be hit anymore. It's making the other guy feel inferior. Whenever you stop a team, that's fun. Whenever you hear the crowd cheer for you, that's fun. Whenever you look around and see nothing but bodies, that's fun. " Zumwalt is part of a four-man unit that goes, from right to left, Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Zumwalt and Myles Jack.

UCLA Coach Jim Mora received an explanation of why linebacker Anthony Barr was called for a personal foul in the third quarter Saturday from Tony Corrente, the Pac-12's director of officiating. It led Mora to another question … one that can only be answered by the New Mexico State coaches or offensive linemen. “I'm trying to figure out why you wouldn't block Anthony Barr,” Mora said. Barr came in free during the third quarter Saturday and leveled quarterback King Davis III, knocking him out of the game.
