Scanning the long-range forecast for Spartanburg, S.C., Ryan Kalil sits in the comfort of Manhattan Beach and can't help but cringe -- the wilting heat, the steam-room humidity, the relentless thunderstorms. Carolina Panthers training camp is the last place he wants to be this summer. And the only place. Kalil isn't just the team's starting center, but he's also the anchor of its offensive line, the club's franchise player coming off his second consecutive Pro Bowl appearance.

Ryan Kalil knows what it takes to win championships, having won two national titles with USC not long ago. So I guess that means we should believe Carolina's three-time Pro Bowl center when he says that the Panthers will be this season's Super Bowl champions. This wasn't just a quick thought that ran through his head one day or something he just happened to mention to a few teammates while working out. Kalil actually took out a full-page ad in Wednesday's Charlotte (N.C.) Observer that declares: "CAROLINA PANTHERS - SUPER BOWL XLVII CHAMPIONS!"

Some people light up a room. Ryan Kalil rearranges one. The former USC center, among the fastest-rising players in the NFL draft, walks into a room the way he saunters to the line of scrimmage: surveying, assessing, critiquing. This picture would look better over here. The mirror should be hanging on the other wall. Wouldn't the couch look better in that corner? Yes, this interior lineman can appreciate the finer points of interior decorating, but it's more than that.

As USC prepares for the toughest part of its football schedule the Trojans are counting on their playmakers. Quarterback John David Booty, receivers Dwayne Jarrett and Steve Smith, running back Chauncey Washington and linebackers Rey Maualuga and Keith Rivers are among those who must figure prominently on Saturday against Oregon and remain healthy and productive in the coming weeks against California, Notre Dame and UCLA.

No. 4 Minnesota Vikings: T Matt Kalil, USC - - The younger brother of Carolina's Ryan Kalil, the highest-paid center in the NFL, Matt is widely viewed as the top tackle in the draft. He initially backed up Tyron Smith at right tackle, then, as a sophomore, beat out Smith for the vacancy at left tackle. Kalil has a large collection of remote-controlled cars that he raced this off-season when he wasn't working out for the draft. Comment: Christian Ponder was sacked 30 times in 10 starts and the Vikings surrendered 49 sacks overall.

USC running back LenDale White remains slowed by a thigh bruise, but the junior said Wednesday that he would play against Washington State. "By Saturday, I'll be 100%, it just takes awhile," said White, who did not participate in contact drills for the third consecutive day. "They got some magic stuff to make me feel better. I'll take some Advil, I'll be feeling way better."

With Mike Williams absent again and freshman Dwayne Jarrett sidelined because of a groin strain, receiver William Buchanon on Thursday continued his bid to become a prominent piece of USC's offense. Buchanon, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound redshirt junior, was switched from receiver to cornerback in 2002 and started three games. He was moved back to receiver after the start of last season but did not make a catch. Since training camp began, however, he has been perhaps the most effective deep threat.
