Tight end John Allred, USC's No. 2 receiver, broke his left leg in practice Wednesday and is lost for the season. Allred caught 10 passes for 131 yards in three games before he went down with what at first appeared to be a sprained ankle. Later, X-rays showed a break in the lower leg, and he was scheduled for surgery Thursday afternoon. Allred led the Trojans in receiving yardage, and only wide receiver Ken Grace had more catches, with 16.

It was seven months ago, midway through spring football practice, that USC's season suffered its first serious blow. Offensive lineman Phalen Pounds, 6 feet 7 and 310 pounds, slammed into a linebacker one afternoon and felt a "pop" in his right shoulder. The shoulder remained sore the rest of spring practice and still hurts. Pounds had reconstructive surgery June 20 and won't play again until Sept. 6, when USC opens its 1997 season, against Florida State.

Tight end John Allred, who suffered a sprained ankle against Washington State three weeks ago, ran in sweats.

The USC-Stanford game Nov. 9 at Palo Alto has been assigned a 7:15 p.m. kickoff. . . . The Notre Dame-USC game Nov. 30 is a Coliseum sellout, the fifth straight in the series to sell out in Los Angeles. * USC's best blocker, tight end John Allred, may be out until the UCLA game because of a sprained ankle, but his backup, Jeff Diltz, turned in a memorable play Saturday. On Brad Otton's 29-yard scoring pass to Mike Bastianelli in the third quarter, the 250-pound Diltz took out two tacklers.

The USC-Baylor game on Sept. 24, originally scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at the Coliseum, will instead have a 7 p.m. kickoff to accommodate a telecast by Prime Ticket. * A bye week couldn't be more opportune for the Trojans' pass offense. Coach John Robinson's receiver corps has injury problems. Wide receivers Ed Hervey and Keyshawn Johnson didn't play in a 38-14 loss to Penn State and tight ends Tyler Cashman and John Allred had sat out a combined two weeks of practice.

Trojan quarterback Brad Otton would like to see some university support of Coach John Robinson. Athletic Director Mike Garrett and USC President Steven B. Sample have indicated they won't comment on Robinson's coaching status until after the season. "I'd definitely like to see someone step forward and support Coach Robinson," Otton said Tuesday. "It's a horrible situation he's in. It's wrong [to remain silent]. . . . They should be giving him all the confidence they can."

The question was put to senior tight end John Allred: How can USC possibly generate any fire to play Notre Dame on Saturday after the 48-41 overtime loss to UCLA last Saturday? "It's just time to stand up and be men," he said. "It's tough, but it's another huge game for us. There's a lot riding on it, especially the seniors. "The UCLA loss, with me . . . it's still sinking in. Some of the guys have the feeling that there's some kind of curse on us in that game.

"We have some guys who aren't carrying over into the games what they're doing in practice," he said.
