Call it escape from New York, or specifically, Buffalo, which is not a bad place to escape in January. But, ooooooh, California? It's so far away, maybe 2,500 miles? And all those movies? All that police stuff on the TV shows? Maybe it's just stories, but they don't make all of it up, do they? They have to get all that crime and those car chases from somewhere. Perry Mason wasn't defending people from Amherst Street. And your uncle is in Michigan.

Tackle Vaughn Parker had no intention of attending UCLA when he took a recruiting trip to Westwood three years ago. Parker, who had never been to California, sought only a weekend escape from the harsh winter back home in Buffalo, N.Y. "I really didn't plan on coming here," Parker said. "I just wanted to take the trip so I could say I'd been out to California, and then I'd sign with Michigan State." But Parker fell in love with UCLA and Southern California.

Jonathan Ogden is one of the four finalists for this year's Lombardi Trophy, voted to college football's best lineman, but Coach Terry Donahue has even higher praise for his senior tackle. He says if he were putting together an all-star team based on his 20 years as UCLA's head coach, Ogden would be guaranteed a spot. "He'd make the first team," Donahue said. "He's as good as any player I've had. He should enjoy a fabulous pro career."

San Diego Charger offensive linemen Isaac Davis and Troy Sienkiewicz underwent knee surgery and could rejoin the team within a month. Neither player suffered ligament damage. "We're looking at a minimum of two weeks on both of them, with the possibility of [Davis] going as long as four weeks," Coach Bobby Ross said. "That's the worst-case scenario. We got a little bit of a break." Both were hurt in Saturday night's 32-10 exhibition victory over Arizona.
