Re "History Scrambles Past Trojans," Jan. 5 May I just say how proud I am of our Trojans? They conducted themselves like true gentlemen against a tough opponent, Texas. They played tough and they played clean -- and honored us on the field Wednesday night. JASON J. POSTON Los Angeles Our two Trojans (grandma, 1947, and daughter, 2007) led this family in cheering the Trojan football team through a nail-biting Rose Bowl game. This time the greatest team in college football happened to lose, leaving it 34-1 and the greatest team in college football.

Mike McGee should be congratulated for hiring George Raveling as USC's new basketball coach. The hooting, hollering, ranting, raving, motor-mouth Raveling is the perfect choice for the hooting, hollering, ranting, raving, motor-mouth team he's inheriting. FRANK BISHOP Santa Monica

Computers can't crash this. Polls won't pollute this. Biases don't break this. Not now, not after three years of whiny debate and nagging doubt ended Tuesday in bloodied faces and busted perceptions. USC stuck a four-hour fist into an Oklahoma mouth. USC slapped a grass-stained, padded forearm around a national consciousness. Amid grinding and whirring and banging, USC lowered a cardinal-and-gold dome upon a deep foundation. Welcome to the college football's new capital.

Ed Orgeron does not have fond memories of Memorial Stadium. The last time he visited, 10 years ago, Orgeron was the defensive line coach for a third-ranked USC team that spotted California a 14-point halftime lead before losing to the Golden Bears in triple overtime. It was a turning point for USC, which bounced back from the defeat and went on to win 34 consecutive games and two national titles. However, the circumstances of the loss remain vivid. "It was just devastating," Orgeron said.

Congratulations to Paul Hackett. Because the NCAA is forcing Cal to forfeit all of its football victories in 1999, the USC team from that year has had its record changed from 6-6 to 7-5. The 1999 Trojans are now bowl-eligible. Randolph Ziskin Los Angeles

New USC basketball Coach Andy Enfield spoke Friday afternoon about the Trojans' newest player, D.J. Haley, who played three seasons at Virginia Commonwealth. Enfield said Haley, who graduated in three years and is immediately eligible, plans to enter USC's engineering graduate school. Haley, a 7-footer from Palmdale who averaged 1.9 points and 1.9 rebounds last season, fills a need for a USC team that lost forward Eric Wise, who exhausted his eligibility, and center Dewayne Dedmon, who entered the NBA draft but wasn't taken.
