It's near sundown at Spaulding Field on the UCLA campus, and Cade McNown, who began the day with two pain pills and a tender left arm, is standing at the goal line, shirtless, barefoot and still throwing as though the next ball will bring the answer to the passing universe. And throwing again, to make sure the last pass wasn't a fluke. Morning meetings, and then maybe 200 passes. Afternoon meetings, and then 200 more passes. Running, and then more passes.

Brett Hundley has decided to return to UCLA for his junior season of football. The quarterback was eligible to declare for the NFL draft, but his return to the Bruins makes UCLA a front-runner in next season's Pac-12 Conference championship race. The Times received confirmation of his decision from a person with knowledge of the situation who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter. A news conference has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday to announce the decision.

I praise T.J. Simers and pity the readers who chose to rebuke him [Viewpoint, Aug. 7]. As for Cade McNown's behavior? Repulsive. Just because it isn't murder, drugs or rape doesn't mean we should support scofflaws. I question the character of the readers who wrote in support of McNown and against T.J. Simers. Where are we going if we can't repress flagrant abuse of any law? EVA JEAN GIESE Culver City

SAN DIEGO - Brett Hundley's first season running the UCLA offense became the best season a Bruins quarterback has had, at least statistically. Hundley tossed a 22-yard touchdown pass to Joseph Fauria in the second quarter Thursday against Baylor in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl. It broke Cade McNown's single-season record of 3,470 yards, set in 1998. Hundley, a redshirt freshman, had already broken McNown's total offense record and Drew Olson's completion record. Hundley finished the season with 4,095 total yards, 3,740 yards passing and 318 completions.

Everyone should get off T.J. Simers' back. He was right about Ryan Leaf, he was right about Cade McNown and he was right about the Chargers, even before the exclamation point against the Packers. Simers is one of the reasons that, even though I live in San Diego County, I get the L.A. Times. I can read about the reality of sports, not the pretty face put on by the local nice guys. And Simers' version is soooo much funnier. EDWARD SAADE Poway

One of the things UCLA sought when it brought in offensive coordinator Al Borges was to put in the ball-control, short-passing game, and one of the thing Borges sought was to keep the Bruins from having to depend on the running of quarterback Cade McNown. "You run for yards, but you pass for miles," Borges said. In two games, McNown, who completed only 49.8% of his passes a season ago, is 29 for 44 for 394 yards, a 65.9% completion rate.

It seems that loyal Daily Bruin writers Bill Plaschke and Chris Dufresne are disappointed that UCLA dropped out of the critical top two poll positions after narrowly escaping from Oregon and lowly Stanford. Perhaps this is not all bad, in that UCLA will be spared the annual embarrassment of only having a few hundred fans willing to spend money to attend out-of-town bowl games, and having to resort to begging for ticket welfare again from the Pac-10. These cheapskates apparently wouldn't even buy gas for the long trip to Pasadena for the last Rose Bowl, and didn't buy their allotment for that game, although the loyal Wisconsin fans, who exceeded their allotment, would gladly have bought them.

Maybe I'm the one who "Just Doesn't Get It" [Aug. 4]. Cade McNown is featured in front-page headlines because, as an amateur athlete, he used a handicapped parking space and won't discuss it with a sportswriter (acting as an investigative reporter) while stories of professional athletes involved in minor infractions such as rape, burglary, dope dealing and even murder are relegated to the Jurisprudence section of the Newswire column, generally on the back pages of the sports section. C'mon, T.J., if you want to cover subjects other than sports, join your colleague, Mike Downey, in the vast outback of the voluminous Times.

UCLA Coach Bob Toledo was in a charitable mood Sunday when he favorably compared Wisconsin quarterback Mike Samuel to the Bruins' Cade McNown. Samuel's main function in Wisconsin's ball-control offense is to provide smooth handoffs to All-American tailback Ron Dayne. Samuel threw only 155 passes this season, completing 81 for 1,021 yards and six touchdowns, and rushed for 317 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Brett Hundley's outside-of-football interests include art, philosophy and history. And those all could come in handy as he takes over as UCLA's quarterback and tries to remind fans of another era. Thirteen long seasons have passed since a UCLA quarterback took the Bruins to a Rose Bowl. Thirteen NFL drafts have come and gone since a UCLA quarterback was deemed worthy of selection. The Bruins have had impact quarterbacks. Bob Waterfield, Gary Beban, Troy Aikman, Tommy Maddox, Cade McNown and others left their mark.

UCLA and USC will renew a football rivalry Saturday when, for only the fourth time since 1975, neither team will be looking forward to a bowl game appearance. USC was banned from bowl games as part of its punishment for NCAA rules violations. UCLA hasn't met the required six-win minimum. But the game could be significant anyway, just as the ones below were: 1980: UCLA 20, USC 17 The Trojans, ranked 11th in the nation, and the Bruins, ranked 13th, were college football's best teams not going to a bowl game.

This was a tough start, losing the first two games and facing a schedule that includes Houston and Texas. It was no problem in 1997. UCLA, with Cade McNown at quarterback, beat Texas, 66-3, to start a 20-game winning streak that included a 66-10 victory over Houston. "I remember that we had a lot to prove that season, not only to the critics, but to ourselves," McNown said. "We were coming off a 5-6 season and started the 1997 season 0-2. We need something fast.

Walking into the Rose Bowl Saturday afternoon, I was greeted by a longtime UCLA football fan bearing a familiar UCLA football lament. He was hanging out with hundreds of other tailgating faithful who, standing in searing September Pasadena sun, are increasingly wondering why. "Isn't this supposed to be our show-me year?" the guy said. It is. And it isn't. Two games into a season in which the Bruins could show they are ready to fill the headlines vacated by probation-pillaged USC, they have shown nothing.

April 5, 2009 | Dan Pompei, Pompei is a columnist for the Chicago Tribune.
If draft picks indeed are the lifeblood of a team, the Bears will need to be on the lookout for warning signs of anemia. On the plus side, they finally appear to have a quarterback. On the minus, they have fewer ways to fortify the team around him. Certainly, their trade last week for Jay Cutler changes everything for the Bears from a draft perspective. Primarily, it makes the Bears more dependent on alternate forms of player acquisitions. Hello, Orlando Pace.

The numbers tell the story. Cade McNown was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the first round. So was Rex Grossman. McNown wore the number 8 on his jersey. So does Grossman. The similarities between the Bear quarterbacks past and present don't end there, though it is doubtful that either player would be pleased by the comparison. McNown was an All-American at UCLA who finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting as a senior.

Admitting it is "a distraction," Chicago Bear quarterback Cade McNown said he would like to explain why he doesn't believe he should be lumped in with other players in UCLA's handicapped-parking scandal. "But right now I can't because it's a legal matter," he said after practice in Lake Forest, Ill. McNown's case was continued until Sept. 30.

Cade McNown, UCLA's all-time passing leader, whose pro football career ended in 2003 because of a shoulder injury, earned a degree in history from his alma mater last month, and two months ago got married. He met his bride, Cristina, about a year and a half ago, but the relationship did not get off to a great start. Cristina had just moved to L.A. from the Bay Area and had never heard of McNown.

Cade McNown, a standout quarterback from UCLA who had a brief and unspectacular pro career, is suing two insurance companies for failure to pay his $5-million NFL disability policy. McNown, whose pro career ended in 2003, filed a lawsuit this week in Los Angeles County Superior Court against underwriters from Lloyd's of London and Peterson International, claiming they failed to make good on his policy after he suffered a career-ending shoulder injury.
