 BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Browns rookie quarterback Brady Quinn reached into the back of his locker, pulled out the cardinal-and-gold No. 10 jersey and gritted his teeth.
``This,'' he said, ``is going to hurt.''
Quinn, the former Notre Dame star, then slipped the Southern California jersey over his head and felt his skin crawl.
``That's why I've got extra layers on,'' he said. ``So it doesn't actually touch any part of my body.''
Quinn had to wear USC's colors on Wednesday after losing a bet with former Trojans quarterback Rodney Peete over last week's game between Notre Dame and Southern Cal.
USC trounced Notre Dame 38-0, the Trojans' largest margin of victory in the 79-game history between the bitter rivals.
Quinn and Peete met last year at an awards banquet and have kept in touch since.
``We made a little friendly bet,'' Quinn said. ``We (Notre Dame) didn't pull it out last Saturday, so I'm owning up to it.''
Surely, Quinn got some points in the wager. After all, Notre Dame is 1-7 and USC is 6-1.
``It's a pride bet,'' Quinn said. ``C'mon now. You don't bet points. I got faith in my guys.''
Quinn, who is from Dublin, Ohio, said he was briefly recruited by USC but never considered going there.
``I really had no desire whatsoever,'' he said. ``They recruited me a little bit. I committed earlier in the process.''
When he finished with his interview, Quinn quickly ripped off the jersey and slam dunked it into a nearby garbage can.
A few minutes later, Browns linebacker Willie McGinest, a former USC All-American, confronted Quinn in front of his locker. McGinest wanted to know what Quinn had done with the jersey.
``You acting up?'' McGinest said.
``I didn't make the bet with you,'' Quinn said.
