John Byrne, 61, a rock 'n' roll musician who wrote and sang "Psychotic Reaction," the only hit of the San Jose garage band Count Five, died Dec. 15 of kidney and liver failure at the Regional Medical Center of San Jose, his daughter Tina said.

The finalist for president of San Jose State University withdrew her application Tuesday, citing financial reasons and strong objections to her candidacy from some prominent alumni. A group of affluent alumni who objected to the slate of minority and women finalists for the job threatened last week to end financial support of the university unless the application process was restarted.

In Sacramento and San Francisco, press conferences were held to announce the filing of a lawsuit against the 19-school California State University system and a separate suit against San Jose State University, both complaints alleging state gender equity violations in their athletic departments.

Edell Shepherd has more receptions than Florida's Jabar Gaffney, more yards than Michigan's Marquise Walker and more touchdowns than Lee Evans of Wisconsin and Josh Reed of Louisiana State. What does that mean? Simply that Shepherd has better statistics than four wide receivers who are considered among college football's finest, who are among 11 candidates for the Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the best wideout. Now the bigger question. Who is Edell Shepherd?

Is it or isn't it? His contract expires Dec. 17, so San Jose State Coach Dave Baldwin could be on the sideline for the last time at Saturday's game against Fresno State. And while Neil Parry will take part in the pregame coin toss, Baldwin is not reluctant to draw on the emotion surrounding Parry's situation to create more interest in the game--and possibly help his own cause. "This is Neil Parry Day," said Baldwin, the former Cal State Northridge coach. "I guarantee you we'll come out to play.

His crutches are propped against a wall and a San Jose State football helmet is on top of the television set in front of the chair where Spartan safety Neil Parry is resting, a knitted blanket over his lap. Neil's mother, Linda, asks him if he wants to change out of his shorts into a pair of sweat pants, but he says he doesn't. Neil says he is fine in his gray Spartan T-shirt and blue athletic shorts. He shifts his weight in the chair and tries to get comfortable, which isn't easy.

Ten players walked out on San Jose State's Bill Berry this week, charging him with verbal abuse and "mental cruelty" and vowing not to play again as long as he was the coach. So with the backing of Athletic Director Randy Hoffman, Berry put a basketball team--of sorts--on the court Thursday night at Titan Gym. One might be tempted to call it a football team.
