Everybody take a deep breath. The sports hysteria of recent days is over. In our rearview mirror, thankfully, are the Super Bowl and high school football signing day. The NFL ran its annual scam and we all sat up and barked. No question, the game is great theater, the athletes are special and the chance to have a party is nice. The problem is, we have to hear about it constantly for two weeks, almost as if we are deaf or have attention deficit disorder. We get it. We know it is our civic duty to watch the commercials and buy from the advertisers so they will make enough money for even more expensive commercials for next year's Super Bowl.

And the best place to find older players ready to step in is not high schools. So UCLA has happily accepted letters of intent from five junior college players.
