Farmers & Merchants Bank of Long Beach is a community bank founded nearly a century ago by C.J. Walker that is still "in the hands of the Walker family," its website proudly points out. To some members of the Walker clan, that's just the problem. A dissident branch of Walker heirs who are F&M Bank shareholders -- led by Marcus Walker, one of C.J.'s great-grandsons -- is challenging the management of the closely held bank headed by his uncle, Chief Executive and President Kenneth G. Walker.

Marcus Walker, a dissident member of the family that runs Farmers & Merchants Bank of Long Beach, said he scored a partial victory in a proxy fight. F&M Bank's shareholders elected one of the two directors nominated by Walker, who is leading an investor group that is pressing the closely held bank to make several changes, such as splitting its stock. "I am hopeful the board of directors will seek to enhance shareholder value now," Walker said in a statement.

When he was a boy and his father would return home after another long day at the family's bank, Henry Walker would ask, "Did you make any loans today?" After that topic was exhausted, Walker recalled, it might be time for a fatherly quiz on percentages. Some, perhaps, are born bankers, while others have banking thrust upon them. For the descendants of C.J. Walker, a rancher who founded Farmers & Merchants Bank in 1907, it's hard to tell the difference.

In the defensive set, Cleveland cornerback Mark Mooney was assigned to wide receiver Sean Williams.

Lance Mitchell of Oklahoma would not be the first college football linebacker to awake from a cold-sweat dream in which he was lined up in pass coverage against USC tailback Reggie Bush. Mitchell, though, said he was sleeping well this week, knowing he won't have to handle Bush alone. "We're all going to have to point him out," Mitchell said. "We all have to be aware where he is at all times. It's not going to be just me."

USC RUN OFFENSE VS. OKLAHOMA RUN DEFENSE * Leading rusher LenDale White worked through an ankle injury he suffered in the regular-season finale against UCLA, but Reggie Bush will start. White, though, could be the key to the game if he can run effectively and set up play-action passes. Bush averages more than six yards a carry and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball for an offense that averages 176 yards rushing a game.

Crazy, zany and loony are three apt words to describe the end of Monday night's Fiesta Bowl at the University of Phoenix Stadium. You thought it would never end, but it did, with one of the most gutsy calls and remarkable plays in the history of college football. Ian Johnson scored the game-winning, two-point conversion run to lift Boise State to a 43-42 overtime victory over Oklahoma.

No top-10 season recap of the college football season would be complete without citing Oregon State's upset win over USC, or the havoc the new clock rules created on coaches, or Nick Saban failing the lie-detector test at Miami and signing with Alabama for $32 million. Except this one, because those stories didn't make our year-end cut.
