USC's John Michels, a 6-7, 285-pound fifth-year senior, completes an astonishing season in the Rose Bowl. For two years, on defense, he played behind Willie McGinest. Frustrated, he moved to offense--and last year played behind another star, Tony Boselli. In training camp last summer, left offensive tackle was the biggest question mark of Coach John Robinson's 22 starting positions. But Michels became an all-Pac-10 first teamer and is projected as a high NFL draft pick.

Some folks are going to be feeling pressure in the Coliseum on Saturday. Coach John Robinson will be among them. He came back to USC promising to return Trojan football to national prominence and expectations are sky high for this team, which opens against San Jose State. And what about the starting quarterback? For Brad Otton or Kyle Wachholtz, whichever it turns out to be, if this offense sputters early, the boos won't be far behind.

Mel Gray, the leading kick returner in NFL history, suffered a concussion on the first play of the Baltimore-Tennessee game Sunday. Gray, who has topped 1,000 return yards for the Oilers the last two seasons and has more than 12,000 yards in combined kickoff and punt returns in his career, was hit in the head on the opening kickoff. Indianapolis quarterback Jim Harbaugh also was knocked groggy in the final minute of the Colts' game at Buffalo and he was replaced by Paul Justin.

Admitting it is "a distraction," Chicago Bear quarterback Cade McNown said he would like to explain why he doesn't believe he should be lumped in with other players in UCLA's handicapped-parking scandal. "But right now I can't because it's a legal matter," he said after practice in Lake Forest, Ill. McNown's case was continued until Sept. 30.

Guard Joel Crisman, whose absence in the Penn State game two weekends ago cost the USC football team dearly, also will miss the Washington State game Saturday night at the Coliseum. Coach John Robinson said Tuesday that the right big toe Crisman injured in the Houston game Sept. 4 must heal before he can play. Crisman, a 6-5, 290-pound senior who starts at left guard, was replaced by freshman Kyle Ramsay at Penn State Sept. 11.

It was billed as the first full-dress scrimmage of the preseason, but it turned out to be a day off for 13 of John Robinson's regulars and near-regulars. But about 400 spectators Saturday afternoon were able to see all of USC's quarterbacks play, including Brad Otton (four for six for 46 yards including a 17-yard touchdown to Rodney Sermons). His competition for the starting job, Kyle Wachholtz, was one for six for 14 yards.
