As a starting offensive guard at USC, where All-American linemen are as prevalent as winning football teams, you would guess Derrick Deese was recruited by almost every major college in the country. Guess again. Besides failing to earn a minimum score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test as required by NCAA Bylaw 14.3, more commonly known as Proposition 48, Deese was disparaged by his coach at Culver City High. "He apparently told people that I couldn't play," Deese said.

They went by names of T-Lou. Los. T-C. Hardware. Big Skinny. They came from places like Detroit. Samoa. The Marine Corps. A trailer park. A state penitentiary. They gathered in a cluster of buildings off Crenshaw Boulevard in Torrance to learn about football. They slept together, fought gang members together, starved together. They wore lava-lava skirts to games, held parking-lot potlucks afterward, shared money and silly dreams.

Tailback Mazio Royster, kept out of the second half of Monday's game against Memphis State because of a slightly sprained right knee, underwent tests Tuesday. The results will not be known until today, but initial indications are that Royster, who ran for 97 yards in 20 carries, will play against Penn State on Sept. 14.

Early Monday afternoon, Minnesota Viking Coach Dennis Green introduced Mike Saxon as his punter to about 700 people at a publicity luncheon. About an hour later, the Vikings released Saxon.

Notre Dame Coach Lou Holtz, whose team will play USC Saturday at South Bend, Ind., said of the Trojans: "We've always had trouble moving the ball against them." Not recently, they haven't.

"Sure, you factor in the defense, but still, you have to look at how he made some of those runs," Smith said of Crayton, who gained 185 yards in 27 carries. "He used speed and talent on some of those runs, too.
