This is how it was: Coach Bob Toledo longed to give quarterback Scott McEwan his daughter's hand, but wouldn't dream of giving him a start. This is how it is: McEwan has a rock-solid relationship with a gorgeous molecular cell and developmental biology major, and start he will, finally, in his last regular-season game after five years as a bridesmaid. It's all in a college education.

Scott McEwan didn't win the starting quarterback job with his second-half showing against Fresno State last week, but he did win points with the Bruin coaching staff that already considered him a quality insurance policy. It comes as more than gratuitous praise since McEwan could still have an important role Saturday against Michigan.

It appears Scott McEwan, a fifth-year senior, will make his first career start for UCLA Saturday at Washington State in a pivotal Pacific 10 Conference game between teams coming off their first losses. McEwan threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-28 loss at Stanford after replacing Cory Paus, who injured his thumb on the Bruins' last offensive play of the first half. Paus said Monday he doesn't think he will start, adding that he can't hold a football well enough to throw it.

As far as UCLA is concerned, Scott McEwan is in the bag. The Thousand Oaks High quarterback committed his intent to accept a scholarship offer from the Bruins months ago. That doesn't mean he won't get the royal recruiting treatment anyway. McEwan will be UCLA's guest today for the Bruins' game against Northeast Louisiana at the Rose Bowl. He will take part in a tailgate barbecue with boosters, meet the coaches' families and stand on the sidelines while the Bruins warm up.

Studying film of last year's opener against Alabama, Scott McEwan was struck by a thought. That could be me. He sees Ryan McCann step in for injured quarterback Cory Paus and guide the Bruins to a 35-24 victory. This year, McEwan is No.2 behind Paus, who has a history of injuries. "I'm taking the approach that I need to be as prepared as possible," McEwan said. "If I'm thrown into the situation, I don't want it to take me two or three series to be ready."

He might not play at all tonight, maybe not even for several games if UCLA has only close games and Cory Paus avoids injury. But Scott McEwan knows things have changed. He's the backup quarterback now, promoted from No. 3 when Drew Bennett was officially moved to receiver earlier this week. He's on the spot now. With nine college snaps on his resume. With one pass, an incompletion.

Fortunately for Scott McEwan, he didn't have time to think about the significance of his fourth-and-six play against Stanford here Saturday, with three minutes left and UCLA trailing, 31-28. Had he, much of the following might have occurred to him: * His school's bid for a national championship was on the line, something it hadn't achieved since 1954. * The opportunity for the Cinderella story, a chance at a national title appearance Jan.

OK, here's the rundown on UCLA's ever-changing starting quarterback position: Ryan McCann is out, Scott McEwan is in. Or is McCann in and McEwan out? If you're confused, just think what the coaching staff is going through. After UCLA barely held on for a 24-21 victory over Fresno State Saturday night at the Rose Bowl, Coach Bob Toledo was appropriately blunt about where things stand. "We need to get better performances from our quarterback position for us to be successful," he said.

There is someone at the forefront, but no foregone conclusion. Drew Bennett is the No. 1 quarterback at UCLA . . . today. There are several options in the four-way race to replace Cade McNown . . . and there's always the tailback option since Jermaine Lewis threw only two fewer passes, and one fewer completion, than Bennett last season. And there's the flanker option, since Freddie Mitchell threw the second-most touchdown passes for the Bruins in 1998.

So Golden League offenses move slower than wind-blown tumbleweeds across the Mojave Desert, huh? I could, on behalf of desert football fans, take exception to such an analogy. But I won't. The Golden League, after all, is capable of defending itself. As opposed the Marmonte, which can't defend anything. Numbers of note: Golden League teams have a 23-7 record against nonleague opponents. The Marmonte is a mediocre 14-9-1. Sure, Marmonte teams can pass. Statistics don't lie.
