USC's week of practice after the disaster at Notre Dame has been more upbeat than one might expect. "The guys came out and practiced well," quarterback Mike Van Raaphorst said. "It's never been a problem giving 100%. We just need to execute better in the second half." A couple of practices ended with the "fourth-quarter drill," a grueling session that includes push-ups, somersaults and crawling on all fours. "I like it. It toughens you up," tailback Chad Morton said. "It's a hard drill.

There was the loss, and then there was the injury toll. USC's R. Jay Soward was dazed and confused, but seemed as if he would be all right even though he was headed to the hospital for precautionary tests after being knocked unconscious and suffering a possible concussion in the fourth quarter Saturday.

Jason Grain was standing there amid all that talent, thinking how out of place and overmatched he was. "I was really intimidated," he said of his late April workout at Dick Lascola's scouting combine. "There were all kinds of big-time players there, about 70 or 80. I worried that I wouldn't be able to test good, that I would be horrible. I tested out fine. "That was the turning point for me. I knew that I could be a Division I player, that I could compete with anyone.

USC receiver R. Jay Soward's hamstring remains tight--a little like the Trojans' mood. "Everybody's uptight," Soward said. "Four straight losses--that isn't typical for USC." Soward, unable to play Saturday because he couldn't run in pregame warmups, is eager to return but remains day-to-day. * Quarterback Mike Van Raaphorst said he has been playing with a sore left--non-throwing-- hand and was to have X-rays to check for broken bones. . . .

USC might be in a pickle at center. Coach Paul Hackett just hopes it isn't a repeat of the 1978 Arizona State game, when the injury-ravaged No. 2 Trojans used three centers and fumbled six snaps in a 20-7 upset loss. The current crisis is that Matt McShane, the starter in the San Diego State game, twisted his left knee in practice Tuesday. Eric Denmon, who started against Purdue, already was on the sidelines wearing a brace on his severely sprained left ankle.
