No one notices Jesse Hardwick. Why should they, when there's so much else to focus on at Fresno State? You have quarterback Trent Dilfer passing for 2,836 yards and 21 touchdowns. You have running backs Lorenzo Neal and Ron Rivers each gaining more than 900 yards. You have receivers Malcolm Seabron and Tydus Winans catching 41 and 33 passes, respectively. You have the nation's top scoring team with an average of 40.5 points per game. Who's got time to watch some guy block?

When it was over, when Fresno State finally accomplished what its coach and players say they always knew could be done, they began the celebration of their dreams. "Fresno State is for real," offensive tackle Ron Collins screamed as the final seconds ticked off in the Bulldogs' 24-7 victory over USC in the Freedom Bowl Tuesday night in Anaheim Stadium. The cry was a mere warm-up for the party that followed.

You've heard of Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard, the famous "Mr. Inside" and "Mr. Outside," the running backs for the great Army teams of the 1940s. Well, meet Mr. Introvert and Mr. Extrovert: Travin Lui and Ricky Lepule of Bolsa Grande High School. "They really are two opposite-type runners--Travin Lui is more of the fullback type and Lepule uses his speed outside well," said Vern Nelson, a Bolsa Grande backfield coach. "Off the field, Lui would be more of a talker than Lepule."

Jim Sweeney, Fresno State's football coach for 15 seasons, seems normal enough. His handshake is firm, his smile warm. There is a twinkle in his eye when he tells a funny story. Watch him closely, though. There is a decidedly oddball side to the man. Here's Sweeney becoming so enraged over an official's call earlier this season that he yanks off his shirt and throws it to the ground. "You've taken everything else from me, take my shirt, too," he's screaming at the stunned officials.
