More than 30 residents, organizations and businesses have money coming from the city of Ventura--a total of more than $2,500--that will go into the city's general fund if not claimed by Feb. 28, city officials said. "The state requires that whenever a municipal government issues checks to individuals and they don't cash them, we have to hold them for a period of three years," said Tom Fratello, the city's senior account clerk.

The competition between Matt Moore and Drew Olson is so tight, UCLA might open the season with the two quarterbacks sharing time. "I think that's still going to be an issue, because to me, it's not head-and-shoulders one's above the other," Coach Karl Dorrell said Tuesday. "There's a pretty good likelihood that may happen. That's not something we haven't talked about."

Two full practices into preparation for the Las Vegas Bowl, UCLA Coach Karl Dorrell and his staff have made it clear that the Bruins are using their postseason workouts as a chance to build attitude. Practices have been shorter but the pace has been faster -- by design. "There's a thin line between being a tough football team and a team that's not, and a lot of that has to do with tempo," tight end Keith Carter said. "You want to be fast and quick to the ball. Always on the move and hustling.

An Oxnard man admitted Tuesday in federal court that he used a phony military identification card and authentic-looking uniform to enter the Naval Construction Battalion Center at Port Hueneme during the Gulf War. Keven Empey, 34, admitted his guilt in U.S. Magistrate Court in Ventura in exchange for entrance into a diversion program that will erase the charges from his record if he obeys all laws for the next 12 months.

Chicago Loyola 78, Wisconsin 75--Gerald Hayward scored 25 points and Keith Carter had 18, including two free throws with 10 seconds to play and two more with no time left, as the Ramblers (3-1) overcame the Badgers at Madison, Wis. Wisconsin (4-3) thought it had tied the game with 13 seconds left on a long shot by Tim Locum, but an official ruled Locum's foot was on the three-point line, making the basket worth two points. Locum missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.

With 33 freshmen in camp--22 on scholarship--perhaps it stood to reason. Still, it was a surprise to see six first-year players listed second team on the depth chart released Thursday. There were the expected (quarterback Drew Olson, tight end Marcedes Lewis, weakside linebacker Wesley Walker) and the unexpected (fullback J.D. Groves, cornerback Glen Ohaeri and tackle Alex Potasi). "I'm really pleased with the freshman group," Coach Bob Toledo said.

Vagabond quarterbacks need not contact UCLA. That's the message from Coach Bob Toledo, who expressed no interest in Craig Ochs this week despite recruiting him out of high school. Ochs, a sophomore, left Colorado and was reportedly shopping around the Pacific 10 Conference before settling on Division I-AA Montana on Wednesday so that he is assured of being eligible next season. Last year Toledo spurned overtures from Brandon Hance, who left Purdue and wanted to transfer to either UCLA or USC.

USC sent Mike Williams' summer school grades and other information to the NCAA on Tuesday with hopes that a decision on the All-American receiver's eligibility is made within a few days. "It is sitting at the NCAA office and we are awaiting a final ruling," said Todd Dickey, USC's vice president and general counsel. USC, which begins its season Saturday against Virginia Tech, has applied to the NCAA for a progress-toward-degree waiver and reinstatement of Williams' eligibility.

UCLA will put a special emphasis on its punt team this week after Oklahoma's Antonio Perkins returned seven punts for an NCAA-record 277 yards and three touchdowns against the Bruins on Saturday. "There's a lot we can change," Coach Karl Dorrell said. "We tried two directional punts and didn't get the job done. Our errors were small, but they were critical.... We could use some starters and key backups on the punt team.
