It appeared a case of school property defacement, likely the work of a prankster. Years ago, an assistant coach at Claremont McKenna College came upon an old desk while cleaning out a weight room in the athletic department. The culprit had carved into the wood, the way lovebirds might scrawl a heart into a tree. Except this inscription was curious: it read "I Love This College" and was signed "John Zinda." The assistant reported what he thought was an act of mockery to the football coach.

The Rose Bowl -bound college football teams made their annual pilgrimage to Disneyland on Sunday, taking in a day of roller coasters, parades and confetti-filled pomp. During the visit, Wisconsin Badgers and Texas Christian Horned Frogs football players rode the Matterhorn bobsleds and the Mad Tea Party teacups after greeting fans in a celebration in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. "I don't really like the rides where you go up and down too much," said 6-foot-3, 305-pound Texas Christian center Jake Kirkpatrick.

To play high school football in Southern California, players have to fulfill some basic requirements, such as getting a physical and making sure they are academically eligible. There is an added element if you want to play for Sherman Oaks Notre Dame this season. You'll need a passport, because the Knights are headed to Ireland to play Hamilton High of Chandler, Ariz., on Aug. 31 in a journey that will rank as the longest trip any Southern Section school has traveled for a regular-season football game.
