Larry Smith hasn't accomplished what he promised when he was hired: to beat Notre Dame and compete with the Irish and Miami for the national championship. It's time to consider bringing back John Robinson to coach USC. DARREN GUY Escondido

Perhaps USC football fans are learning what UCLA basketball fans know all too well: Building dynasties isn't as easy as it used to be. Mike Kichaven Sherman Oaks :: USC fans, you got what you wanted. Now it's time to rally around the players, the team, the coaches, Pat Haden, the athletic department, [President] Max Nikias and the University of Southern California. Fight on. Jeffry Johnson Laguna Hills :: Reasonable minds must be boggled as to why Pat Haden couldn't even wait until the team bus returned to campus before sacking Lane Kiffin.

The days of fans attending USC football practices ended the day the NCAA handed down sanctions in 2010. But last spring, USC allowed a maximum of 200 fans to watch campus workouts from two areas of the adjoining baseball stadium, a policy that will continue during fall training camp. The school announced the following dates and practice times, noting that they are subject to change and last-minute closures: Aug. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 -- 3:15 p.m. Aug. 10 -- 8:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. Aug. 11 -- 3:15 p.m. Aug. 12 -- 8:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. Aug. 13 -- 3:15 p.m. Aug. 14 -- 8:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. Aug. 15, 17 -- 3:15 p.m. Aug. 18 -- 8:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. Aug. 19-20-- 3:15 p.m. USC opens the season Aug. 29 at Hawaii.

USC football fans, cheer up. One way or the other it's going to be a successful season. The team will either win consistently, possibly upset the Bruins and end up in a bowl, or Ted Tollner will be fired. DOUGLAS TRUCKS Los Angeles

One wonders what Walt Hazzard could do to satisfy the short-sighted idiots like David Selkirk. In three years at UCLA, Hazzard is 61-33 with a .649 winning percentage. Last season, his team was 25-7 and brought the Pacific 10 championship back to Pauley Pavilion. Yet, Selkirk is not satisfied. He wrote, "Hazzard can't coach, and he can't recruit." Trevor Wilson, Kevin Walker and Gerald Madkins prove that Selkirk obviously isn't paying attention. Given the five coaching changes in recent years, it is remarkable that UCLA is even competitive at all. One must remember that it took John Wooden 18 years to bring a national championship to Westwood.

When I attended UCLA in the '40s, we considered ourselves fortunate to beat USC once during our four years. That was then. This is now. Now is better. JACK LEENER Palm Desert UCLA is currently accepting applications for the following positions: 1. Head basketball coach. 2. Football rival. Please submit resumes to P. Dalis. JONATHAN BANKS Brentwood A major riddle in my life has finally been solved. After UCLA has possession for 34:34 to USC's 25:26, has 31 first downs to USC's 17, and outgains USC in total yardage, USC's John Allred says the Trojans "dominated the game offensively."

A football season that once swaggered through the warmth of a No. 1 ranking has curled up and expired in a cold, remote desert, buffeted by a chilled and foreboding wind. The kid coach is bundled in a black hoodie and wearing sunglasses. He is standing 10 yards from most of his team. He is hunched over a play card, huddled into himself, alone. The kid quarterback is battered by the wind, perplexed by the defense and wandering the sidelines looking for comfort or instruction. He receives neither and wanders alone.

The honeymoon isn't over for Pat Haden because, well, he is Pat Haden. He is the kind of person with whom you want to have dinner. Every night. When he speaks, everybody listens. When he is in the room, the room is worth being in. His best friend and current right-hand man, J.K. McKay, has always had the best summary. "He was more mature when he was 11 than I am now," McKay says. McKay is 58. Still, this new life of Haden's, as athletic director at USC, is neither a popularity contest nor merely a measure of personality.

Why are Trojan supporters unable to appreciate the tremendous talent they have running their football program? I suspect it's because they are too caught up in overemphasized rivalries with UCLA and Notre Dame. These Trojan backers fail to get the point: Larry Smith is a great leader and on any given day USC might beat anybody. Coach Smith deserves more years at the helm so he can claim his rightful place in that once-glorious Trojan history. PHIL CALANDRA San Francisco
