I find it amazing that Mark Larson [Viewpoint, Dec. 17] can get a letter printed in your paper. Obviously, Justin Medlock's conduct was unacceptable, but does that make USC the better choice when it allows its players to commit assault and still play football? I could bring up O.J., but that has nothing to do with USC's football program. Neither does Medlock's behavior reflect on UCLA's. At least UCLA did the right thing by suspending its player. I don't know if Mr. Larson has a child he is going to send to college, but I certainly know where Mr. Larson can go. I hope you like warm weather.

UCLA players and fans will never forget the Bruins' 13-9 victory over USC in 2006. Neither will players from that No. 2-ranked Trojans team that lost a chance to play in the Bowl Championship Series title game. "Losing to UCLA was never in our thoughts," former Trojans quarterback John David Booty said Monday from Louisiana, where he grew up and resides. It remains UCLA's only victory over USC in the last 13 years. But it still resonates with the Trojans. "That was a bad game," former linebacker Oscar Lua said.

Justin Medlock, UCLA's suspended kicker, appeared before an Inglewood Superior Court judge Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to two alcohol-related felony charges. Medlock, 22, was the driver in a car accident that injured Hannah Jun, 20, a member of UCLA's women's golf team, on Dec. 10. Medlock was charged with one count each of driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08% causing injury.

Vince Young was too inconsistent to win the Buffalo Bills' backup quarterback job, so now the team is giving Tarvaris Jackson a shot. The Bills shuffled backup quarterbacks Monday by completing a deal to acquire Jackson in a trade with Seattle. They then cut Young. The moves coincided with the Seahawks' deeming Jackson expendable after naming rookie Russell Wilson their starter, and it came two days after Young struggled in his bid to lock up the No. 2 job in a 38-7 exhibition loss to Pittsburgh.

UCLA kicker Justin Medlock was sentenced to three years' probation Monday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor drunk-driving charge. Inglewood Superior Court Judge Rodney Forneret also ordered Medlock, 22, to perform five days of work for the California Department of Transportation and undergo a nine-month alcohol education program as a result of a Dec. 10 accident that injured Hannah Jun, a member of UCLA's women's golf team.

Reporting from Santa Clara, Calif. — David Akers, a five-time Pro Bowl kicker who recently joined the San Francisco 49ers, has been a waiter throughout his adult life. First, he waited tables to make ends meet when football wasn't paying the bills. Then, he waited for his chance, hitting the waiver wires three times before hooking on with Philadelphia in 1999, where he played until this season. Finally came the interminable wait every NFL kicker encounters — the expectant wait for someone to step in and take your job. "Let's be realistic," Akers, 36, said after a recent practice.

Justin Medlock was lounging around his Westwood apartment Sunday, trying to keep his interest in the NFL draft as casual as possible. He knew kickers rarely get drafted, at least that was the tale he'd often heard. Still, as the second-leading scorer in UCLA football history, Medlock had gained a toehold in the minds of NFL scouts. "I was with my girlfriend and my mom and a friend," said Medlock, who scored 357 points during his Bruins career.

UCLA quarterback Ben Olson attracted a crowd and so did running back Chris Markey and defensive tackle Kevin Brown, but the player who drew the most attention at the Bruins' media day Monday was senior kicker Justin Medlock. For the first time since he was suspended as a result of an accident that injured Hannah Jun, a member of UCLA's women's golf team, on Dec. 10, Medlock spoke to reporters.
