Four-year Air Force veteran Derrick Rodgers threw out some free advice Saturday to 18-year-olds who haven't chosen career goals. Enlist. "Definitely, I would recommend the military," he said. "When I was a teenager, all I wanted to do was play the trumpet. I had no discipline, I wasn't going anywhere. So I joined the Air Force. "Without the Air Force, I never would have gone this far in football. In fact, I might never have played at all."

In a week when Southern Cal went 2-0 vs. California (University of and People of), the football program was taught a lesson by its famous alum. With Johnson under investigation by the NCAA and Walters, Ifeanyi and Herrin suspended for taking thousands of dollars from an agent, Robinson and company have taken the low road. The school (and I use that term loosely) has decided that these professional players can regain their mythical student-athlete status by simply returning the money. The lesson: Why shoot for innocence when you can buy "not guilty"?

USC linebacker Errick Herrin was stiff and sore Sunday and Monday, but he expected as much. It comes from playing an entire football game after having only watched for five Saturdays. But that kind of pain, Herrin said, is preferable to the kind he experienced while serving his recent five-game suspension. Accepting a telephone pager and a Las Vegas trip from a sports agent in violation of NCAA rules cost him half his senior season.

The two defensive players and running back Shawn Walters were suspended Sept. 28 by the school for their alleged involvement with Robert Caron, an Oxnard sports agent. The players allegedly received money and gifts, an NCAA violation.

The university will seek a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court today to prevent Robert Troy Caron of Oxnard or any representatives from his firm, Pro Manage, from contacting any USC athletes. The suit also will ask for unspecified damages, said Robert Lane, USC general counsel.

USC linebacker Errick Herrin lost two more games Thursday because of his involvement with a sports agent, but defensive end Israel Ifeanyi was hoping to get one back. The NCAA suspended Herrin for five games, including three he has already missed. He will not be eligible to play until the game against Stanford on Nov. 4. Ifeanyi, on the other hand, asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to grant a temporary restraining order that would let him play Saturday against Notre Dame. Judge Robert H.

The other day at the USC football practice field, an 18-year-old freshman muffed a blocking assignment and was yelled at by a coach. He trudged back to the huddle, head down. He was still mumbling about it at the next water break. Errick Herrin, a 25-year-old junior linebacker, suppressed a smile. It's only in moments such as those, he says, that he feels much older than many of his teammates. Herrin spent four years in the Marine Corps before beginning his college football career.
