Former Occidental College quarterback Andy Collins, a three-time Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference offensive player of the year, has died of an apparent heart attack. He was 27. Collins died Tuesday at Imperial Point Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., according to the Broward County medical examiner's office. The cause of death is pending an investigation, although Collins reportedly had been working out on a treadmill just before his death. Ten days earlier, he had married Brooke Olzendam, a college football reporter for CBS. A transfer from the University of Oregon, Collins played at Occidental in Los Angeles from 2004 to 2006 and had an immediate effect.

For Oscar de la Hoya, few days remain until his summer in Spain. It's fewer than 100 days until the Barcelona Olympics' opening ceremony, and fewer than 50 until the U.S. Olympic boxing trials.

At the Brooklyn Gym in East Los Angeles the other day, young boxers stood quietly at ringside and watched the lightweight gold medal hopeful do routine work with his trainer, Robert Alcazar.

These are not the results of a survey. This is not GQ ? it might not even be PC. This is one man's list of the Southland's 50 all-time "coolest" athletes based on a half-century of marinating in the local sauce. Your definition of cool should differ. You can be cool and great, to me, but also great and not cool. What did you bring to the game other than a jump shot? Cool is often what is left unsaid ? nuanced in countenance and cadence. It doesn't generally refer to itself in the third person.

It is appropriate that the NCAA West Regional is in Southern California, at the Arrowhead Pond, this year. Because, to be blunt, SoCal college basketball rules. As we begin the glorious four days of regional semifinals and finals, it's time for the rest of the country to notice what Southern California has transported everywhere--fantastic basketball players and confoundedly intriguing teams.

More than anything, coaching matters in college football. And Oregon State has the best college football coach going right now. Which means, Southern California, be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

Oregon State crunched Not-Ready-For-BCS-Time Notre Dame, 41-9, Monday night in the Fiesta Bowl.

But there's one hitch. Most of these courses will be lavish, costing more than $100 a round to play. That's out of the price range for many golfers, who wait for hours on weekends to play at crowded--but more reasonably priced--courses.
