Say the words "Sal Alosi" and watch UCLA football players snap to attention. The name inspires respect — and a certain amount of nervousness. You couldn't ask for more from a strength and conditioning coach. "The first workout, I made a little joke," defensive end Datone Jones said. "Coach Alosi came over and said, 'Did I give you permission to speak?' I went, 'Wow, this guy is for real.'" Ask a player, get a story. Alosi is intense. On a scale of 1 to 10, "he's a 12," safety Andrew Abbott said, laughing.

UCLA has boosted pay for assistant football coaches to an unprecedented level for the university. The pay pool was increased to $2.442 million in base salaries and talent fees for this season. This comes two years after staff pay cuts that took the pool from $1.8 million in 2008 to $1.645 million in 2011. Assistant coaches made $2.08 million in 2012. The $2.442 million does not include signing and retention bonuses. Mora received a one-contract extension worth $2.5 million last winter.

When outlining his search for a coaching staff, new UCLA football boss Jim Mora said, "I want guys that are … great mentors for our young student-athletes. " On Monday, he hired the perpetrator in the most blatant cheating incident in recent NFL history. When describing members of his new staff, Mora has called them "coaches and teachers on and off the field. " On Monday, he hired the man who, two years ago, stood on an NFL sideline and purposely tripped an opposing player as he streaked down the field on a punt return.

As the New York Jets prepare to take another step toward securing a spot in the playoffs, the spotlight remains on one of their assistant coaches who put his worst foot forward. Sal Alosi, the Jets strength and conditioning coach, was suspended for the rest of the season and fined $25,000 by the team for using his knee to intentionally trip a Miami Dolphins player running out of bounds on the sideline on a punt. The lingering question: Was it simply a rogue act, or did the Jets deliberately form a human wall along the boundary to crowd the Dolphins' outside coverage man?

In New York, it isn't just about a wandering knee, it's about a lost soul. In Berkeley, it isn't about fake injuries, it's about fraudulent leadership. In Denver, the spy didn't only reveal an opponent's schemes, but his own team's integrity. Remember the good old days when the cheaters were the players? Poor desperate jocks trying to gain an advantage in the heat of the moment? Blatantly wrong, but easily understandable because it was so darn human? Crimes have changed.

The NFL fined the New York Jets $100,000 on Thursday for violating league rules when assistant coach Sal Alosi tripped Miami's Nolan Carroll on the sideline during a punt return this month. The Jets were fined because Alosi "placed players in a prohibited area on the sideline to impede an opposing team's special-teams players and gain a competitive advantage. " The NFL called it a competitive violation as well as a dangerous tactic. Alosi and special-teams coach Mike Westhoff also have been cited for public comments accusing other teams of employing similar tactics.

Running back Johnathan Franklin didn't just break the UCLA all-time rushing record. He broke it in style. Franklin dipped and juked his way 37 yards for a touchdown on the Bruins' first possession against Arizona on Saturday. He eluded two defenders after taking the handoff, then left another Wildcat waving at air 10 yards downfield. The run allowed Franklin to pass the UCLA record of 3,731 yards, set by Gaston Green from 1984 to '87. UCLA Coach Jim Mora called timeout before the extra point so the crowd at the Rose Bowl could honor Franklin.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley was a bit flustered, something opposing defenses might not be able to cause this fall. Asked how the college football world will greet the Bruins when they return for August training camp, Hundley said, "Great question. With open arms?" Hundley turned serious, "That's a tough question to answer because what I expect is different from what everyone else will expect of us. " Actually, not so much. The bar will be set high for UCLA entering the 2014 season … in the locker room and in the public's eye. "We definitely should be considered as a big-time program," said linebacker Myles Jack.
