To all the Bob Oateses of this world who are ready to relegate Gaston Green to the hot-stove league waiver wire, it might be wise to turn the calendar back to 1972, when a certain Ram rookie running back labored in greater obscurity than Green is now, before turning in some stellar years for the local eleven. A clue to his identity? Gaston Green is wearing his old number (30) and his initials are L.M. (Lawrence McCutcheon). BILL SEIBEL La Verne

Cornerback Daylon McCutcheon had been waiting until after a possible bowl game to weigh his future at USC, but now he says he is seeking information from several NFL general managers through Coach John Robinson as he decides whether to declare for the draft. "One day I feel like I know what I should do and the next it's the opposite," said McCutcheon, who is also consulting his father, former NFL running back Lawrence McCutcheon. "It's a big decision, but either way I think I'll be successful."

When Daylon McCutcheon left USC in 1999 to pursue a career in the NFL, he promised his mother, Deborah Sterling, a special education teacher at Giano Intermediate School in La Puente, he would eventually get his degree. Friday, McCutcheon, 29, a cornerback for the Cleveland Browns, had a limousine pick up his mother, who thought she was being taken to an early Mother's Day brunch.

The name is familiar and, the way Marcus McCutcheon figures, so are the expectations. That's inherent with being the son of Lawrence McCutcheon and half-brother of Daylon McCutcheon. People tend to make comparisons when members of your family have been in the NFL. "[The name] boosts expectations," said McCutcheon, a sophomore at Edison High. "People hear the name and they've seen the success of my dad and my brother, and I'm sure they expect the same thing from me.

Daylon McCutcheon didn't ask for it, but he has gotten it. Attention, hype, pub, call it what you will. He and Brian Kelly were supposed to be a killer USC cornerback tandem and McCutcheon was probably on his way to the NFL after this, his junior year. He was on the cover of the Sporting News college football yearbook, right there beside UCLA's Skip Hicks. He was the kid with the famous father. Everybody's All-American. Now will he even be All-Pac-10?

USC's Tre Madden , moved this week from linebacker to tailback, appears more than comfortable at the new position. That shouldn't come as a surprise. His father, Curtis , played fullback at Kansas State, his grandfather Lawrence McCutcheon was a Pro Bowl running back for the Los Angeles Rams, and his uncle, Daylon McCutcheon , was an outstanding running back at La Puente Bishop Amat High before playing cornerback at USC and in the NFL. Madden impressed again Thursday during a physical full-pads practice, running with power and speed and also consistently catching the ball out of the backfield.
