2009 Off-Season Roundup
The News Stories You Need To Know ... April 7
* Condolences to the family of former Arkansas D-lineman Ken
Anderson, who recently died of a heart attack. To all those big-time
college athletes who think they're invincible and will live forever,
Anderson was only 33.
* How do you celebrate catching three passes in Florida State's
spring game? If you're receiver Rod Owens, you party, allegedly. He
was arrested near campus Sunday morning and charged with driving
under the influence, according to Tallahassee Police.
* Wish that was the only substance-related story in today's News
Roundup, but it's not. Former USC linebackers Brian Cushing and Clay
Matthews Jr. have seen their names cleared after a weekend Internet

Lombardo, who administers the NFL's drug policy, told the
linebackers that they had not tested positive for banned substances.

* Wait, hang on, former USC QB Todd Marinovich was arrested
Friday in Newport Beach for failing to show up at a drug
rehabilitation progress review.
