Former Ohio State offensive tackle Alex Boone, who once acknowledged routinely downing 30 to 40 beers a day before seeking help after a DUI arrest, is in trouble again.
Boone, who is in Southern California training for the NFL combine, was arrested in Aliso Viejo for resisting arrest and obstruction of a law enforcement officer after an apparent drunken tirade following the Super Bowl. Officers had to use a Taser in order to subdue Boone.
Police said Boone, who is 6 foot 8 and 312 pounds, was yelling and jumping on cars outside an apartment building when they arrived. He also tried to break the driver side window of a tow truck and wanted to fight the driver.
Wolf writes: "I've naturally been accused of being anti-USC. Would I be pro-USC if I voted the Trojans No. 1? I'm guessing that would be OK. I could see this being a legitimate controversy if it were November, but teams have played only two or three games. Is that enough to form a groupthink that everyone needs to pick the same team No. 1?" Celebrities — or at least those who can get sideline passes to Trojan games — were out in force. That's Todd Marinovich and Greg Oden, above, and Denzel Washington, below.

USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, despite a brace on his left knee — he suffered a dislocated kneecap during fall drills — played well, throwing for four touchdowns. Hector Aguilar, aboard USC mascot Traveler VII, had one of the best seats in the house. It wouldn't be a USC post without the Song Girls. Buckeye quarterback Todd Boeckman might be on the verge of losing his starting job to Terrelle Pryor. The 32-point loss was the largest of the Jim Tressel era and the biggest blowout suffered by the Buckeyes since a John Cooper-coached team lost to No. 1 Penn State, 63-14, in 1994.
