Texas linebacker Keenan Robinson remembers last season's game against UCLA this way: "They took what we gave them. " The Longhorns gave a lot. UCLA rumbled for 264 yards rushing in a 34-12 rout at Austin. Johnathan Franklin led the way with 118 yards rushing and Derrick Coleman ran for 94, including a 29-yard touchdown. "My role is to go out and get tough yards and be physical," Coleman said. "That's what I did and that's what I'm about to do again. " Not so fast, Robinson said.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Their journeys to the Super Bowl might have been on different roads, but they all started from the same spot - playing college football in Los Angeles. USC and UCLA will have plenty of presence in Sunday's Super Bowl and, although most are backups, names familiar to Southern California football fans are sure to crop up. Seattle Seahawks linebackers Malcolm Smith and Mike Morgan played for the Trojans, and running back Derrick Coleman for the Bruins. Smith, a seventh-round draft pick in 2011, provided the game-saving interception in the Seahawks' NFC championship game victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Clippers got their man Wednesday in the NBA draft when they selected Loyola Marymount guard Bo Kimble with the eighth choice. That came after the New Jersey Nets had made Derrick Coleman of Syracuse the top pick and the draft took on a shooter's look. "There is no one happier right now than I am," Kimble said. "It's a young team, up and coming, and it's a perfect situation for me." As a senior, Kimble proved he was fully recovered from knee surgery, leading the nation in scoring with 35.

Clippers point guard Darren Collison is not going to let a sprained left big toe stop him from suiting up against the Chicago Bulls Friday night at the United Center. “Yeah, I'm playing,” Collison said at the Clippers' shoot-around Friday morning, before doing some light shooting with associate head coach Alvin Gentry. Collison was injured Saturday night against the Indiana Pacers, but has played the last two games, at Detroit and Charlotte, with varying degrees of success.

UCLA guard Jeff Baca looked up and saw tailback Derrick Coleman's backside 20 yards down the field during a live scrimmage during Tuesday's practice. "That was awesome," Baca said. "You make a block, look up and see your tailback in front of you, then one guy misses him, and he's gone. That's encouraging." Coleman's 39-yard touchdown run is why the Bruins have made the change to the "pistol" offense this spring. UCLA averaged a woeful 3.5 yards a carry a year ago, underscoring the need for a consistent running game.

UCLA is headed in a different, bigger direction with its running game this week. Derrick Coleman , a 6-foot, 230-pound sophomore, will get his first start of the season when the Bruins play at Washington State. UCLA has struggled with its running game in recent weeks, and the number of fumbles has become a concern. That has brought the focus to Coleman, who had seven carries in five games before he gained 49 yards in 13 carries against Washington on Saturday. "We need to see more yards after contact and we obviously need to see more security with the ball," running backs coach Wayne Moses said.

UCLA tailback Johnathan Franklin doesn't play mind games when he runs. He darts one way, then another, then kicks in the speed. Nothing he can really explain. "I don't know, maybe I'll see my lineman's butt, or maybe green grass, or the defense move the other direction," Franklin said of his jitterbug style. "Rather than think about it, I just do what my instincts tell me." That style set him off on a 60-yard dart-and-dash touchdown run during Saturday's scrimmage. It was the centerpiece of a 99-yard performance that helped propel him into the No. 1 tailback spot during this morning's practice.

A top American bobsledder has spoken out in defense of her national federation, saying officials were justified in their selections for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. The U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation has come under fire for naming track star Lolo Jones as one of three push athletes on the squad headed to Russia. Jones is a relative newcomer to the sport, but also a marquee name who made headlines as a hurdler at the 2012 London Games and 2008 Beijing Games. While not mentioning Jones by name, American bobsled pilot Elana Meyers stated that criticism of the USBSF -- which has reportedly come from social media and email -- is unfair.

RENTON, Wash. - For Seattle fullback Derrick Coleman, the Seahawks' home field is the loudest stadium he's never heard. Coleman is legally deaf, and has been since he was 3, so he won't have need for earplugs Sunday when the Seahawks play host to San Francisco in the NFC championship game. "I feel it, I don't exactly hear it," he said of the noise at CenturyLink Field, where twice this season the Seahawks "12th Man" set Guinness Book records for being the world's loudest crowd at a sporting event.

All running back Derrick Coleman wanted was one yard. He didn't get it. But he did take away a lesson from a goal-line stand by Stanford last month. UCLA got to the four-yard line on its first drive and came away with nothing. Coleman, a 5-foot-11, 240-pound senior, had two tries at scoring — a one-yard run came up one yard short and a third-down effort ended with him in the arms of three Cardinal players just shy of the goal line. "I didn't get in, that's all I remember," Coleman said.

Running back Malcolm Jones , the Gatorade national player of the year as a senior at Westlake Village Oaks Christian High, appears headed to another season of limited action. Jones, a sophomore, played briefly against Texas and had one carry for six yards against Houston. Unless he is injured, he cannot redshirt. "You always want to get more time," Jones said. "It's just the way it goes. If I'm not playing as much as I would like, that's fine. I'm still only a sophomore.
