The slump that UCLA Coach Steve Alford said was not a slump took a night off. Alford was adamant this week that the Bruins were not in an offensive funk, shooting 42% in their last four games. The Bruins, Alford said, were merely in "a hurry offensively" and a little "complacent. " The semantics could be given a rest Thursday. The Bruins were neither complacent nor in a hurry in a 91-74 victory over Stanford at Pauley Pavilion. "We got back to who we are," Alford said.

SAN FRANCISCO - The Department of Homeland Security made a "mistake" when it put a former Stanford University PhD student on the government's no-fly terrorist watch list and must give her an opportunity to apply for reentry to the United States, a federal judge has ruled. U.S. District Judge William Alsup said the government's refusal to allow Rahinah Ibrahim, 48, to board a plane in San Francisco in 2005 stemmed from an error that the government must correct. Ibrahim was eventually allowed to leave the country, but she has not been permitted to return from her home in Malaysia.

Poorer Americans suffered bigger blows than richer ones as the housing market fizzled during the Great Recession, causing wealth inequality to surge for the first time since the 1980s, a new report finds. During the recession, tumbling values in the housing market “increased wealth inequality because houses are the main asset of less advantaged groups,” reported the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality. Unlike the very rich, who held more of their wealth in stocks or businesses, poor and middle-class Americans banked more heavily on housing.

The 100th Rose Bowl came down to a fourth down and the most predictable play call in Pasadena on Jan. 1 since they resumed football in 1916 after years of chariot and ostrich races. "Everyone in the building knew it was coming," Stanford tailback Tyler Gaffney said. Two bullheaded teams that refused to give an inch put everything on the line over 12 inches of territory at the Stanford 34-yard line in the Rose Bowl's north end. Stanford rolled out its "elephant" backfield package and Michigan State's defense rolled up its green sleeves.

Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook walked to the Rose Bowl sideline Wednesday, unsure of the greeting he would get from Coach Mark Dantonio. Stanford had returned a second-quarter interception for a touchdown. "Coach D was just giving me this look and I was hoping he wasn't going to be super upset and say something to put me down," Cook said. But the ensuing exchange repeated a seasonlong script. "You good?" Dantonio said. "Yeah, I'm fine," Cook answered. The two traded a fist bump, felt better about the situation, and then went their separate ways.

Michigan State has defeated Stanford, 24-20, in the 100th Rose Bowl after the kind of defensive stand -- and offensive play-calling -- that might have been expected. The game was decided on this play: Stanford has the ball on a fourth-and-one play at its own 34 with less than two minutes to play. The Cardinal used its final timeout, presumably to decide whether they would hand the ball off to the left of center or right of center. Then Michigan State used a timeout, apparently to talk about whether Stanford would run to the left of center or the right of center.

Stanford didn't go totally without a victory in the Rose Bowl on Wednesday, even though Michigan State won the game, 24-20. The Cardinal and its young and successful coach, David Shaw, took top honors in stubbornness. They were rock-solid in that category. No matter what the score, what the situation, what point in the game, they played "Stanford football. " Translation is simple: "You establish the running game. " You do so, even if you end up establishing only that Michigan State is too good on defense to allow you to establish the running game.
