Congratulations to UCLA and the Rose Bowl for the courage to get rid of beer and in the process the frequent rowdyism that goes with it ("Many Saluted Rose Bowl's Beer Ban With a Can of Suds," Part B, Sept. 9). The Coliseum Commission should take note. On the other hand, however, those of us in attendance at the UCLA-Oklahoma football game were prevented from bringing into the stadium any kind of thirst-quencher despite the 100-plus heat. Of course they wanted to sell soda at $2.50 per glass, but the availability was inadequate, not to mention the lack of just plain water.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Their journeys to the Super Bowl might have been on different roads, but they all started from the same spot - playing college football in Los Angeles. USC and UCLA will have plenty of presence in Sunday's Super Bowl and, although most are backups, names familiar to Southern California football fans are sure to crop up. Seattle Seahawks linebackers Malcolm Smith and Mike Morgan played for the Trojans, and running back Derrick Coleman for the Bruins. Smith, a seventh-round draft pick in 2011, provided the game-saving interception in the Seahawks' NFC championship game victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Found: Evidence that a current NBA player is not talking about packing away his talent and taking it overseas if the league-imposed lockout should continue. Jrue Holiday, pioneer. Kidding aside — yes, there have been others willing to wait it out and not add to their frequent flier accounts — Holiday said Monday at UCLA that he has no interest in going elsewhere. "I don't want to go overseas," he said. "I'm not going anywhere. That's pretty much it. I'm more of a homebody.

UCLA didn't pull off an upset Thursday night over top-ranked Arizona, but at least fans in attendance at Pauley Pavilion got some decent pre-game entertainment. Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea performed the national anthem before tipoff, showing off some of the skills that have made him a well-known entity in the rock world for decades. Flea keeps things simple at the start of the Star Spangled Banner before unleashing a grinding blast that seemed to work well at getting fans pumped up for the game.

I can't see Steve Lavin doing too well as a college basketball analyst for ESPN. He didn't seem to have much insight into what was going on in UCLA games the last seven years. Rob Osborne Redondo Beach

In Gene Wojciechowski's column on Sept. 28, he didn't point out that Terry Donahue got rid of Rick Neuheisel for a reason: a 53% winning record since 1989 for the team that has the most players in the NFL during this period. I stopped going to UCLA games long before Terry retired about 10 years ago (and didn't tell anybody). JOHN MARTIN San Pedro

First-class letter to the L.A. Times sports department: 34 cents. Satellite television to catch UCLA games: $60 per month. Having your negative letter about DeShaun Foster's abilities printed in The Times on the same day DeShaun runs for 301 yards and four touchdowns against Washington: Priceless. Mike Kilgore Los Angeles DeShaun Foster rushed for 301 yards and four touchdowns against a defense that hadn't given up a rushing touchdown since last season's Washington-UCLA game, more yards than Charles White or Marcus Allen ever had in one game.

The Pacific 10 Conference on Monday reviewed the actions of UCLA Coach Steve Lavin and guard Baron Davis during Sunday's game at Washington and hinted that Davis may be disciplined. Commissioner Tom Hansen would not speculate on the chances that Davis would be suspended for saying that the Bruins got "cheated" by referee Terry Christman in the 93-83 loss in Seattle. Lesser penalties could be private sanctions or a public rebuke. A decision probably will be made today.

USC quarterback Matt Barkley , on track to start against UCLA on Saturday night, said Thursday that he was not concerned that the Bruins might target his injured left ankle. "It might happen, maybe get a late hit or something like that," Barkley said after practice. "I don't think you can be worried about that when you play because that will just hold you back. " Barkley, sidelined last week against Notre Dame, took the majority of first-team reps and showed improved mobility.

Reporting from San Francisco -- UCLA Coach Jim Mora has been busy, though out of sight. "We got a ton of work to do," Mora said of reviving a program that has been stagnant since the Bruins' last Rose Bowl appearance in 1998. He will pick up help for that chore this week. San Diego Chargers linebackers coach John Pagano is expected to be hired as defensive coordinator and Seattle Seahawks assistant Jeff Ulbrich as special teams coach, while current UCLA assistant Angus McClure will be retained, according to people familiar with the situation who are not authorized to speak publicly.

UCLA vs. USC, the matchups Beat reporters Gary Klein (USC) and Chris Foster (UCLA) analyze the matchups in Saturday's football game between the city rivals: USC run game vs. UCLA run defense Trojans tailback Javorius Allen has scored three touchdowns in three of the last four games. Tre Madden, Ty Isaac and, possibly, Silas Redd and Soma Vainuku also will carry the ball for an offense that has averaged 177 yards rushing behind an improved line. When UCLA's Myles Jack is on defense with Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks and Jordan Zumwalt, it might be difficult to find a better group of linebackers.

Ask the coaches of the high school football teams in The Times' top 25 rankings (and an extra Herrington brother) to make a prediction on the UCLA-USC football game and many are torn. Some are graduates of UCLA or USC, or have wives who graduated from either school, and their prediction could result in retaliation at home. Others have assistants with ties to one or the other school, and that could cause staff turmoil. Most expressed strong feelings of support toward UCLA Coach Jim Mora and USC interim Coach Ed Orgeron.

About 1:17 p.m. on a Friday, fall weather finally arrived - rode in on the jet stream, fortunately, because if you have ever tried to get anywhere in L.A. on a Friday afternoon, a car is the last vessel you'd want to use. Half the attendees at our tailgate party arrived by bicycle, the only mode of transit that seems to work in this town anymore. The lack of an NFL franchise makes me feel deprived and fortunate all at once. Deprived because there is no such thing as too much football.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Jordon James, UCLA's introverted running back, is uncomfortable in the spotlight. Problem is, he keeps gaining all these yards. James ground out 105 in a 41-21 victory over Nebraska on Saturday, 38 on a draw play that wasn't even in the game plan at the start. It was his second 100-yard effort in as many games. "This was a great team win," James said, when asked whether this was different than the 155 yards he gained against Nevada in the season opener. He added that "Nebraska is a great defense.

UCLA's Tony Parker slipped away without comment after a 75-59 victory over USC on Sunday. He was not made available to the media after the game, but his play, for once, could speak for itself. What the Bruins can be and what the Bruins are was clear from Parker's play. The 6-foot-9, 275-pound enigma from Georgia, had eight points, three rebounds, a block and a steal in 13 more-bang-for-your-buck minutes during the first half. UCLA bolted to a 47-26 halftime lead. Parker was limited to four scoreless minutes in the second half.

UCLA forward Travis Wear will not play against Arizona State on Saturday after suffering a concussion against Arizona. Wear was injured in the first half, when Arizona's Grant Jerrett inadvertently hit him with an elbow. He is the Bruins' third leading scorer, averaging 12.2 points a game. “There is a normal protocol when it's determined you have a concussion,” UCLA Coach Ben Howland said. “There are a certain amount of steps and days.” After the game, Wear said, “I got a stinger, both arms went numb.

This is the week of traditional college football rivalries. Ohio State-Michigan, Stanford-California, Indiana-Purdue, Nebraska-Oklahoma, Washington State-Washington and Oregon State-Oregon. But there is one rivalry, USC-UCLA, that is unique. The game usually has a bearing on the Rose Bowl race, as it does this year, but the distinction is that the city championship is at stake, bragging rights for an entire year.

UCLA's Travis Wear didn't mince words after a 76-67 loss to Oregon on Saturday. "We hate this feeling," he said. So much can change on one game. The No. 24 Bruins took a 10-game winning streak into Saturday's game. They left knowing that Oregon is tougher. The lights went out at Pauley Pavilion six seconds into the game. The best chance for the Bruins would have been if a couple Oregon players had mysteriously vanished in the darkness. Instead, Tony Woods, Oregon's 6-foot-11 center, made eight of nine shots and scored 18 points.

Join us at noon for a Google+ Hangout with Times national college football writer Chris Dufresne, UCLA writer Chris Foster and USC writer Gary Klein as they take a look at the sport. This week's topic are sure to include discussion of the upcoming USC and UCLA bowl games, a preview of the BCS title game between Alabama and Notre Dame and a preview of the Rose Bowl between Stanford and Wisconsin. As Dufresne wrote earlier this week , "This is being called a "traditional" Rose Bowl because the football champions of the Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences just hit town, went to Disneyland, plan to eat wheelbarrows of prime rib and then play in the sacred Jan.1 post-parade time slot.
