Vince Young probably wonders why USC doesn't just ship Reggie Bush's replica Heisman Trophy to him. … The former Texas quarterback always believed that Bush never should have won it in the first place. … Mike Garrett gets too much blame for USC's troubles. … Bush gets too little. … It would not be surprising to see football jersey No. 5 back in circulation at USC in the near future. … Pat Haden is not too short to be an effective athletic director.

When was the last time, if memory serves you, a Ram quarterback took control, marched the team down and scored with the efficiency of Steve Bartkowski? Vince Ferragamo, the year before the Rams went to the Super Bowl, had that impact. But certainly not in the Pat Haden-Dieter Brock era. TRACY KIM Manhattan Beach

A rose, by any other name, is still a rose. So, too, is an Aberegg. That's what Courtney Aberegg has discovered. It's a lesson shared with Venessa Ferragamo and Spencer George. When it comes to high school sports in Orange County, these three athletes find themselves carrying on the family name. In some cases, such as Aberegg's, it's no big deal. Ferragamo, on the other hand, longs for the day when "Daughter of Vince Ferragamo" doesn't seem to be part of her surname.

Quarterback Vince Ferragamo continued his silence Thursday as the Rams attempted to trade him to another National Football League team. Other than a brief television interview Tuesday night after the Rams signed Canadian free agent Dieter Brock to play quarterback, Ferragamo has not commented on Coach John Robinson's announced plan to trade him. He has not returned phone calls from reporters attempting to reach him.

Former Ram quarterback Vince Ferragamo, who was cut by the Buffalo Bills last week, signed a contract to play with the Green Bay Packers for the remainder of this season and all of next. Packer Coach Forrest Gregg said Wednesday it was uncertain whether Ferragamo, who started the Bills' first nine games this season, would play in either of Green Bay's last two games.

Quarterback Vince Ferragamo, whom the Rams are trying to trade, displayed his talents for the Buffalo Bills Wednesday. Buffalo Coach Kay Stephenson and his staff watched for two hours as Ferragamo worked with several Bill players and then led a makeshift, seven-man offense against an equal number of defenders. "It went well," said Stephenson, who is looking for an experienced quarterback to replace longtime starter Joe Ferguson, traded to Detroit earlier in the year.

The college draft has come and gone, and quarterback Vince Ferragamo is still with the Rams, apparently because they are asking too much--a second-round draft choice--for him. Ferragamo has been on the trading block since the team signed Dieter Brock. A month ago, Ferragamo seemed to be headed for Green Bay, but the Packers got Scott Brunner from Denver instead. An official of another team said: "They're asking too much.

Vince Ferragamo was once described as "the most enigmatic quarterback in Ram history." Though he was smart enough to be accepted into the Creighton Medical School, he occasionally was the object of jokes that poked fun at his scatterbrained tendencies. He sometimes made up plays in the huddle, scratching them in the dirt like a kid in a sandlot game. Before a playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys in 1983, Ferragamo asked a reporter, "If we win, we go to San Francisco, right?" Wrong.

It isn't easy trying to fill an Orange County Sports Hall of Fame, professionally speaking. The Angels have been in Anaheim for 27 years, and all they have to show for it are eight winning seasons, three divisional titles and no American League pennants. The Rams have been in Anaheim since 1980 and haven't gotten past the conference championship game yet. They qualified twice, in 1985 and again in 1989, and were outscored by Chicago and San Francisco by a cumulative margin of 54-3.

Vince Ferragamo stood near midfield before the Rams played the Giants at Anaheim Stadium Sunday, that toothpaste-commercial smile splitting his tanned face, and acted as referee for a baby derby sponsored by a diaper company. When Ferragamo--whose mind wanderings are the stuff of NFL lore--looked down at the grass, though, he must have briefly relived a Sunday afternoon on this field a decade ago, a day like a dream, a day of perfect spirals and headlong catches.

Places you won't find Vince Ferragamo's name: --In the pro football Hall of Fame. --In a star on Hollywood Boulevard. Places you will find Vince Ferragamo's name: --On a Tarbell-Realtors for sale sign. --On a Special Olympics golf tournament banner.

The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday that they have waived Vince Ferragamo, their starter at quarterback for the first nine games this season. The 31-year-old Ferragamo, an eight-year veteran from Nebraska, was obtained, along with an undisclosed draft choice, on July 18 from the Rams in exchange for tight end Tony Hunter. He immediately became Buffalo's starting quarterback, but the Bills won only one of the nine games with Ferragamo at the helm.
