It's a running feud between Cal State Fullerton receiver J.J. Celestine and assistant coach Jim Chaney. Chaney insists Celestine, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior who leads the team in receptions, has big feet. "He looks like a clown," the Titan wide receivers coach says. "He's got the biggest feet for a receiver you've ever seen." Celestine says it isn't so. He says he can fit into a size 10 sneaker but wears an 11 or 12 because he likes to have a little room in his shoes.

It took three days for the Raiders to have their first fight in training camp at Oxnard. During Wednesday afternoon's practice last year's top draft choice, Chester McGlockton, fought offensive lineman Rich Stephens in a pass-blocking drill. "It's the third day of practice, which is normally a tough day--the hump day," Coach Art Shell said. "Tempers kind of get hot and a couple of big guys started to wrestle."

Cal State Fullerton, a team whose offense has struggled all season, changed its ways Saturday and scored a 58-13 homecoming victory over San Jose State in front of 4,112 at Santa Ana Stadium. Fullerton's 58 points tied the school record, set against Santa Clara in 1976, and were the most the Titans have scored against a Division I opponent. On Fullerton's first play from scrimmage in the Big West Conference game, quarterback Dan Speltz lofted a pass toward J.J.

Cal State Fullerton will be trying to recreate a bit of glory from its 1984 season when it plays Colorado State today, and former Ohio State Coach Earle Bruce will be seeking his first victory as coach of the Rams. Fullerton won the only previous meeting between these teams, 34-22, with a team led by quarterback Damon Allen that finished the 1984 season 11-1. "We'll take the same scoreboard this time," Fullerton Coach Gene Murphy said after practicing at Hughes Stadium Friday.

Cal State Fullerton continued its five-week string of futility, losing to Nevada Las Vegas, 29-10, Saturday night before 13,791 in the Silver Bowl. The Titans, 1-5 overall and 0-2 in the Big West Conference, committed only one turnover Saturday night as opposed to 16 in the last three games. But Fullerton's turnover was crucial, and the Titans made two other mistakes on punt plays that helped the Rebels (3-3, 2-1) score a touchdown and a field goal in the first half.

It felt good, Cal State Fullerton Coach Gene Murphy said, but he didn't trust it. Something in him knew better--knew how long a game is, knew how things can turn, especially for the Titans. When their football season was two minutes old Saturday, the Titans had a three-point lead. With four minutes gone, the lead was 10. For the first 18 minutes, Fullerton quarterback Dan Speltz didn't throw an incomplete pass, finding his man on his first nine.

Containing Nevada Las Vegas' option offense, which totalled 628 yards in last week's 37-28 victory over the University of the Pacific, will be a formidable task for Cal State Fullerton. The Titans have allowed an average of 421 yards and 35 points per game this season. But to have any success in tonight's Big West Conference game, the Titans must overcome a more lethal adversary. "We have to eliminate our most feared opponent--ourselves," Fullerton Coach Gene Murphy said.
