"I think they're gonna name a wing for him down at the Gerontology Center." Bedford, who turns 28 Nov.

About half the fans who attended the grand opening of Cal State Fullerton's Titan Sports Complex Sept. 5 didn't return for Fullerton's game against Cal State Sacramento Saturday night. The Titans should be glad. Those who weren't among the 4,154 who witnessed Fullerton's 29-3 loss to the Hornets were the lucky ones--they were spared a defeat that was embarrassing by even the Titans' recent dismal standards.

There's little doubt after Saturday's Mission Conference win over Golden West College that El Camino College will dominate the rest of its opponents this season. The top-ranked Warriors (4-0, 3-0) seemed capable of anything in their 38-14 victory over Golden West (2-2, 2-1), a team they tied last year. El Camino was so dominant that Coach John Featherstone put in his second-string quarterback and defense in the fourth quarter. Why not?

The final chapter of Gene Murphy's Cal State Fullerton coaching career had a familiar feel--it read much like the ones that have tormented him the past three seasons. Titans look good for one quarter. Titans collapse in second quarter. Titans lose big. Fullerton followed the same plot again Saturday, losing to Nevada Las Vegas, 33-16, before 3,507 in the Silver Bowl.
