Legendary L.A. Rams and Washington Redskins coach George Allen loved to play veterans as he lived by the credo "The Future is Now. " First-year Cal Coach Sonny Dykes, on the other hand, announced Friday the future is 2015 when he named true freshman Jared Goff as starting quarterback. There are few axioms more true in college football than this one: "You can't win big with a true freshman at quarterback. " USC infamously tried to tempt this theory five years ago this summer when Pete Carroll shockingly announced first-year man Matt Barkley, not third-year junior Aaron Corp, would start.

Jamelle Holieway, the former University of Oklahoma quarterback accused of using cocaine during a federal trial in Oklahoma City last week, Thursday was reinstated a week after being fired as a walk-on assistant football coach at Long Beach City College. Holieway was released the day after his former roommate Charles Thompson testified that the two used cocaine together while playing for the Sooners.

Jamelle should know better. Several months ago, Jamelle Holieway stated that Oklahoma would beat USC by a score of 28-7. He recently revised that to 28-14, but obviously he still didn't get it right. He didn't consider two things:one is that it doesn't pay to brag and tell everyone how bad you are going to beat your opponent;and secondly, he failed to realize the degree of skill and pride that Coach Larry Smith has instilled in the Trojans. I hope Holieway learned a lesson.

Oklahoma quarterback Jamelle Holieway says he's not about to let a reconditioned knee or a bum elbow keep him from his much-anticipated trip home to Los Angeles next weekend to play USC at the Coliseum. "I won't have any excuses," said Holieway, who rushed for 75 yards and passed for 73--including 43 on a touchdown pass play to Eric Bross--to lead the fourth-ranked Sooners to a 28-10 victory over Arizona Saturday. "I can cut, I can spin. There are no doubts in my mind."

There was no way the good news could outweigh the bad for No. 1-ranked Oklahoma on Saturday. The good news was that the Sooners got past 12th-ranked Oklahoma State, 29-10, to run their record to 9-0 and keep alive the Nov. 21 showdown against No. 2 Nebraska. The bad--make that awful--news was that junior quarterback Jamelle Holieway and senior fullback Lydell Carr suffered season-ending knee injuries.

Finally, fourth-ranked Oklahoma can begin worrying about No. 1-ranked Penn State. Oklahoma was assured an Orange Bowl berth against the Nittany Lions two weeks ago, after beating Nebraska. But the Sooners had to get past Oklahoma State and Southern Methodist before thinking about a possible national championship. They cleared that final hurdle Saturday, riding the performance of quarterback Jamelle Holieway to a 35-13 victory over SMU.

Charles Thompson, former University of Oklahoma quarterback serving a two-year sentence for selling cocaine, testified this week in Oklahoma federal court that he, Jamelle Holieway and other members of the Sooner football team used cocaine. Thompson also said then-coach Barry Switzer suspected the Sooner players were taking the drug. Thompson was testifying in the trial of John Green and Lamont Harris, former Oklahoma athletes accused of supplying Thompson with cocaine in January of 1989.

Former Oklahoma football Coach Barry Switzer admitted that he gave Jamelle Holieway a pigskin briefcase as a graduation present, and that he "probably" bought Holieway a beer sometime during the quarterback's years with the Sooners, according to a published report. Switzer said he had received the briefcase as a gift, and that he had given away other "freebies" such as shirts to athletes and non-athletes during his 16 years as the Sooners' head coach.

With second-ranked Nebraska next on the schedule, Coach Barry Switzer of No. 1 Oklahoma is anything but satisfied with the play of his team. "I told our team that if we're setting a trap for Nebraska, we're doing a hell of a job of it," Switzer said Saturday after the Sooners struggled to beat Missouri, 17-13. The Sooners, 10-0 for the first time since 1974, are 6-0 in the Big Eight. They travel to Lincoln, Neb., next week to play the Cornhuskers, 9-0 and 5-0. Missouri dropped to 4-6 and 2-4.

There are many reasons for USC fullback Leroy Holt wanting to beat Oklahoma in Saturday's game at the Coliseum. For one thing, if the Trojans win, then his close friend, Sooner quarterback Jamelle Holieway, can't taunt Holt anymore about a game that was played when they were in junior high school. Holieway played for a Pop Warner team in Inglewood, and Holt represented a team from Carson. Holieway's team won, 42-6. "I'll never forget the score," Holt said. "He never lets me forget it."
