Stanford's David Shaw is one of the most mild-mannered coaches in college football. He rarely shows emotion, and he rarely raises his voice. Not Tuesday. Speaking as passionately as he ever has, Shaw emphatically fired back at Steve Sarkisian after the Washington coach accused the Cardinal of faking injuries. Shaw opened his portion of the Pac-12 coaches' teleconference with a carefully crafted statement, saying "we don't fake injuries, we never have and we never will. I don't condone it. I don't teach it. I don't allow it. " Shaw also began his weekly news conference at Stanford shortly after referring to the same handwritten notes.

Several NFL teams fired coaches Monday, so expect Stanford Coach David Shaw's name to once again be floated as a candidate for a pro job. Shaw said that while it is "unbelievably flattering" and "really cool" to have his name come up, he has not been contacted and "I have no desires to pursue another job. " Shaw has guided Stanford to a 34-6 record in three seasons. The Cardinal plays Michigan State on Wednesday in the 100th Rose Bowl game. Shaw was an NFL assistant for the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens before working as an assistant at the University of San Diego and Stanford.

David Shaw, a prolific writer from television's golden age who also wrote the film "If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium" and Broadway plays, has died. He was 90. Shaw, who was featured in the HBO documentary "Funny Old Guys," died in his sleep Friday at his home in Beverly Hills after a long illness, his family announced. In the late 1940s, he followed his older brother, novelist and playwright Irwin Shaw, to Los Angeles and soon started working in television.

This season's college bowl schedule is reminiscent of how it used to be in the last months of the year in pro golf, or the last five minutes of an NBA rout. Garbage time. ESPN fills airtime and sells ads, but there is no compelling reason to watch or buy. Find a good book to read. Then there is the Rose Bowl, Stanford versus Michigan State on Wednesday, a sign that all is not lost. These are two excellent teams, finishing off compelling seasons played in tough, competitive conferences.

David Shaw, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Los Angeles Times writer who set new standards for media criticism with his hard-hitting examinations of the American press -- including his own newspaper -- died Monday evening. He was 62. Shaw died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles of complications from a brain tumor that was discovered in late May, said his wife, Lucy. "David believed in journalistic independence, and he definitely practiced it," said John S. Carroll, editor of The Times.

You want to know how bad things have gotten? David Shaw probably thinks his new book will be considered scandalous, an outrage. And he's right. It will. That's how bad things have gotten. By "things" I mean the intellectual climate, the zeitgeist, the spirit of the age. Professionally, Shaw specializes in the zeitgeist: as media reporter for the Los Angeles Times, with a reputation for omnivorous reporting and occasional iconoclasm, he takes on the Big Issues. Personally, he specializes in fun.

I enjoy David Shaw's column, "Media Matters." His column about Arnold and Kobe ("Arnold, Kobe: Separating the Men from the Image," Sept. 21) was particularly thought-provoking. It's nice when a person's good works are reported. We need more positive stories and analysis in the news. Cynthia Peters West Covina As a 76-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 12, I want David Shaw to know that the good sense he displayed in "Arnold, Kobe: Separating the Men from the Image" shows me that he is a man/son any mother would be proud of. Keep up the good work, David!

EL PASO - UCLA Coach Jim Mora believes quarterback Brett Hundley will return for his junior season - or so he hopes, anyway. Mora, speaking at the Hyundai Sun Bowl news conference, was asked if he had given any thought to Tuesday's game being the last time he would have Hundley. “No,” responded Mora, who then added: "I don't think it will be. " He paused and left wiggle room, saying, “I am very hopeful it won't be.” Hundley has said he will decide whether to declare for the NFL draft sometime after the Sun Bowl.

Stanford Coach David Shaw said he was excited for new USC Coach Steve Sarkisian, who was hired Dec. 2 after five seasons at Washington. "I know this is home for him," Shaw said Thursday during a Rose Bowl news conference at Disneyland. "It's a bit of a shift for USC offensively, mentality-wise, but he's a Trojan. He's been there, he understands how the place works, he's been received very well, as he should be. "He had a lot of success there as an assistant and I know he's going to have success there as a head coach.

After two seasons as Notre Dame coach, Brian Kelly decided he wasn't spending enough time doing the best part of his job: coaching players. Kelly changed that in 2012, and he shuffled his staff. Then, with Kelly more in tune to his team and the assistants in sync with the head coach, Notre Dame went from unranked to top-ranked. For leading the Fighting Irish to the BCS championship game for the first time, Kelly was voted Associated Press coach of the year. TIMELINE: College football 2012-13 bowl schedule "When you're talking about the coach of the year, there's so many things that go into it," Kelly said.

Jerry Johnson worked up some righteous indignation when the Pac-12 Conference's postseason awards were announced. Not for himself. He's had a nice season, with 25 receptions for 307 yards, but he knew it didn't rate all-conference consideration. What miffed Johnson was that UCLA's Jim Mora wasn't coach of the year. Stanford's David Shaw received that award for guiding the Cardinal to a 10-2 season, which included victories over then-top-ranked Oregon in Eugene and UCLA at the Rose Bowl.

State parole officials missed many chances to capture convicted sex offender Phillip Garrido and find Jaycee Dugard, whom he is accused of kidnapping 18 years ago and harboring in his Antioch backyard, a prison watchdog has concluded in a highly critical report to be released today. Inspector General David R. Shaw said a two-month investigation found that the state parole division supervising Garrido for the past decade could have discovered Dugard, and her two children fathered by him, much earlier than August, when he was arrested.

I hope the creators of Air America read David Shaw's critical column ("All-Left Radio Is Lacking the Right Stuff for Success," April 18) and try to understand what they are doing wrong before they bore themselves right off the air. Shaw's perception of their "aren't we funny and smarter" attitudes is the most annoying aspect of their programming, especially since they aren't very funny or very original at all. I was looking forward to a left-wing edge...

Addendum to David Shaw's puff piece ("The Cigar Manifesto," Aug. 14 and Calendar Letters, Aug. 21): I love the smell of cigar smoke. It reminds me of my grandfather and of old Mr. Schrammerhorn in whose five & dime I worked when I was 15. It also reminds me of Le Moulin du Roc, a Michelin 2-star restaurant and relais near Perigeuex in France, where one is served after-dinner coffee in the small living room and cigars are offered first...
