UCLA nose guard Jim Wahler told the Daily Bruin, the campus newspaper, this week that he almost quit the team when Coach Terry Donahue suspended him after he was quoted in The Times as making critical comments about the coaching staff. In fact, Wahler told sports editor Brian Murphy of the Daily Bruin that he packed up his belongings and was driving north toward his hometown of San Jose when he pulled off the freeway about halfway to Santa Barbara and turned around.

Jim Wahler, UCLA's starting nose guard, has been suspended from the team indefinitely, in part because of comments he made in an article that appeared Thursday in The Times, Coach Terry Donahue said Saturday. "One of the reasons he was suspended was (because of) his remarks in the newspaper," Donahue said. Wahler told The Times last week that he resented being moved last spring to nose guard, the position he played as a freshman, after playing defensive tackle the last 2 seasons.

It's ironic that Jim Wahler, UCLA nose guard (Oct. 6), considers Los Angelenos to be screwed up in the head, selfish and self-centered. This observation comes from a guy who: --Was upset when switched to tackle by the coaching staff. --Claims he can beat two or three guys "time and time again." --Refrained from steroid use only because of the effects upon his looks. --Had the gall to chastise his teammates in a recent game. Apparently, he's either a narcissistic hypocrite or a "victim" of his environment.

Jim Wahler, UCLA's outspoken nose guard, is the Bruins' strongest player, which is good because he carries a chip on his shoulder. His major gripe is that, although UCLA is ranked ahead of USC in the national polls, it is still perceived by many in Los Angeles to be the second-best college football team in town. "And that's (not right)," Wahler said this week. "That's got to end. And if that means taking USC out and blowing them out of the Rose Bowl, so be it. Let's do it."

The winless Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday traded Eric Dickerson, the NFL's No. 2 career rusher, to Green Bay for running back John Stephens. In a separate deal, defensive back Bruce Pickens went to the Packers for a conditional draft pick. "It will give Eric a chance to play, to start," said Falcon President Taylor Smith. "Green Bay was real interested in getting him and for us it was a chance to get a big fullback in Stephens, something we didn't have. It just made sense to do it at this time."

The Rams and Phoenix Cardinals hit everything that wasn't nailed down Monday. Guys carrying footballs, sure, but also taking punishment were guys just looking up into the Anaheim sky, minding their own business. Referees were bounced on their whistles, and even a cheerleader was struck by a player. With that kind of mayhem, the offenses for both teams figured to be stuck in park.

Chinese medalists got more than gold, silver, and bronze for their performances in the Summer Olympics at Barcelona. Medalists have been showered with cash since returning to China, and Reuters news service reported that 13-year-old diver Fu Mingxia has been given $86,000 in cash alone for her victory on the platform. Other gold medalists have reportedly earned much more in a country where the average monthly wage is about $30.

A single-engine plane crashed moments after taking off from Burbank Airport on Wednesday, killing all three aboard, when the pilot apparently fell short while attempting an emergency landing on Interstate 5. The disabled plane angled down toward the traffic-filled roadway, its wings dipping back and forth, then smashed into the ground just yards from the busy freeway, witnesses said. Burbank firefighters arrived quickly with fire-retardant foam, but there was no fire.
