Strike from the list of state workers' perks a free cellphone on which to gab. Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday ordered tens of thousands of state employees to turn in their mobile phones. Brown, a notorious tightwad, says he can't imagine that their 96,000 cellphones are necessary for the people's business, and he wants the number cut in half. "It is difficult for me to believe that 40% of all state employees must be equipped with taxpayer-funded cellphones," Brown said in a statement.

Freddie Bradley's return to the football field has been stalled, at least for another year. The record-setting running back from Hueneme High and Moorpark College did not meet NCAA academic eligibility requirements to play for Sonoma State this season, Coach Frank Scalercio said. Bradley, 23, sat out last season while recovering from a knee injury he sustained during a pickup basketball game and aggravated during spring practice.

Chapman rallied from a nine-point, second-half deficit and defeated Sonoma State, 90-84, in a nonconference men's basketball game Saturday at the Hutton Center. The victory, in the Panthers' home opener, was a nice rebound for a team that was easily handled by Claremont-Mudd in its season opener Tuesday. Chapman Coach Mike Bokosky said he hadn't prepared his team properly for its first game, but he apparently solved the problem Saturday.

An invitation to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to speak at Cal State Stanislaus' 50th anniversary gala is generating controversy and raising questions about the foundation that is paying her. The nonprofit is refusing to divulge her speaking fees. The foundation's secrecy has raised scrutiny over the financial dealings and clout of that group and scores of others like it that are associated with California's public universities. The foundations raise billions of dollars for scholarships and other programs, run student organizations and bookstores and perform other crucial campus functions.

What the money players couldn't deliver for UC Irvine Saturday, the bargain-rate guys did--a little offense. Guards Jason Flowers and Brian Scoggin, neither of whom have ever taken a recruiting trip, kept the Anteaters from losing to Division II Sonoma State. They had half of Irvine's points, some at key moments, in a 51-41 victory in front of 746 in the Bren Center.

Without Darnell Morgan in the backfield, Chapman lacked its usual explosive running game. But who needed a running game?

Shaun Coleman is the living, breathing--and for a moment, stumbling--embodiment of what the Cal State Northridge backfield will look like the rest of the season. With the clock winding down in the fourth quarter Saturday, Coleman took a handoff, almost fell before he took his second step, then bounced outside. A moment later, Coleman surprised everybody by bolting down the left sideline for a 49-yard touchdown, one of three scores he managed in the game. All thanks to fresh legs, he said.
