TEMPE, Ariz. - Like many others before them, the USC Trojans traveled to the desert Saturday night in hopes of discovering themselves. They are still hopelessly, haplessly lost. It was their first game in a truly hostile environment, their first game against a credible spread offense, their first chance to objectively measure their progress after four games of controversy and crisis. PHOTOS: Sun Devils best Trojans in the desert They are still going steadily, stunningly backward.

 I don't know what's more entertaining _ watching the Servite student section have fun or watching the football team. Servite's fans, known as the Asylum during the basketball season, are certainly vocal and dress loudly during football games. With all their Hawaiian shirt attire, the students ought to be able to get an endorsement deal from someone. School spirit is certainly alive and well (see video above). Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

Tim Tebow has options. A football team in Russia has offered him $1 million to play in just two games. The Arena Football League team LA Kiss wants to sign him to a three-year contract. An unnamed NFL team reportedly talked about giving him a shot at a position other than quarterback . Problem is, the popular yet unemployed Heisman Trophy winner wants to play in the NFL but doesn't want to switch positions in order to do so. The one team that would kinda, sorta make sense in that scenario might be the Jacksonville Jaguars (yes, they still are an NFL team)

The Watts Bears might be the only football team in the Pop Warner league run by men with guns and badges. The squad of 7-, 8- and 9-year-olds is drawn from housing projects in Watts and coached by officers from the Los Angeles Police Department. For the cops it's part of community policing, aimed at building neighborhood bonds and reducing gang-related crime. For the boys it's a chance to hit somebody, with police officers cheering them on. But there wasn't much hitting in Saturday's game at Cathedral High.

Football is serious business but offers enough unintentionally funny moments to occasionally split your sides. Labor Day weekend's laugh track featured California's coaching staff accusing the opponent of faking injuries to slow down its offense. Now wasn't that rich, as in Rodriguez. First-year Cal Coach Sonny Dykes, who led the nation's highest flying offense last year at Louisiana Tech, thought Northwestern players were purposely cramping up to cramp Cal's style - and the fact that Cal somehow managed to run 99 plays in a 44-30 loss didn't dampen the premise.
