Don James, starting his 19th season as the University of Washington's football coach, abruptly resigned Sunday, hours after the Pacific 10 Conference levied stiff penalties against the school for numerous rules infractions. The football team, which has appeared in the last three Rose Bowls, was placed on probation for two years and was banned from bowl games for the 1993 and 1994 seasons.

While the charges brought against the University of Washington's football program last week by the Pacific 10 Conference generally reflect issues that first came to light in the media months ago, the conference's report does add some new twists to the case. One is the recruiting saga of USC wide receiver Johnnie Morton, who rejected the Huskies when he came out of South Torrance High in 1989.

They're picking on Seattle. Aren't they? Once again, this mid-sized city with an outsized sports appetite and a king-sized drive to be a contender finds itself feeling isolated, and angry. Humiliating! Unfair! Shocking! Hammered! A very, very dark day! Worse than anyone could have predicted! No, these were not the views of sodden ex-jocks at sports bars, but "objective" news accounts that summed up a day of dismay for the sports-minded of Seattle.

The Pacific 10 Conference has charged that University of Washington boosters violated NCAA rules on dozens of occasions in the last eight years, including an alleged scheme in which a Los Angeles businessman routinely provided Husky players with summer jobs requiring little or no work. If the charges are deemed valid by the conference's Compliance and Enforcement Committee, which is scheduled to consider the matter in August, Washington might be barred from appearing in a bowl game next season.
