Rose Bowl, Day 5

LOS ANGELES -- Here's a rundown on the Rose Bowl stories in this morning's paper:

-- Rey Maualuga has overcome a rocky childhood and the death of his father to become one of the best defensive players in the country.

-- Penn State players have been constantly quizzed about their impressions of Los Angeles since their arrival last week. We asked some USC players who had never been to State College what they imagine Happy Valley would be like.

-- The quiet man, Paul Cianciolo, spoke up about this increased role as the backup quarterback now that Pat Devlin is gone.

-- Talkin' talks about practice, with Bob Ford, Phil Sheridan and I weighing on the subject.

-- And here's an update on Joe Paterno's whereabouts:

What Joe did yesterday: Joe reluctantly attended Rose Bowl Media Day, barked at a roomful of reporters to get on with their questions and left after seven softballs.

What Joe might do today: Joe might go shopping down Rodeo Drive and splurge on Gucci blue oxfords, Versace rolled-up khakis, and Prada black cleats.
