Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons thought they were going to change the energy world forever. On March 23, 1989, they announced at a news conference at the University of Utah that they had discovered a tabletop process for producing nuclear fusion at room temperatures. This so-called cold fusion, they said, would provide a clean, renewable, limitless source of cheap energy that could free the United States from its dependence on foreign oil. The pair garnered headlines around the world, and literally hundreds of scientists, both professional and amateur, tried to replicate what appeared to be a simple process.

The Angels did not let a little shoulder tear deter them from their top target in the first round of Monday's draft, using the 17th overall pick to select college slugger C.J. Cron . The 6-foot-4, 230-pound first baseman hit .434 with 15 home runs, 26 doubles and 59 runs batted in as a junior at Utah despite playing the entire season with a tear in his right (throwing) labrum. Cron, 21, said the injury "didn't affect my swing much," but when asked on a conference call if it would require surgery, Cron said, "Yeah, something will have to be done eventually.

Utah officials voted to free nearly half of a $5-million legislative appropriation to fund research into the University of Utah's cold fusion findings. An executive committee of the state's Fusion-Energy Advisory Council endorsed the university's request for nearly $2.5 million for the first year of cold fusion research. The goal of the research is to develop a cheap, relatively safe and virtually inexhaustible source of electrical energy.

The familiar symmetry of the Pacific 10 Conference is changing, and that calls for a road trip. By joining the Pac-10 in 2011, the universities of Utah and Colorado will make it the Pac-12. With that, the rhythms of USC and UCLA fans traveling to the Arizona schools, the Bay Area schools, the Oregons and the Washingtons will be transformed. (OK, so not so many fans go to Pullman, Wash., which Washington State calls home.) Call Colorado and Utah the new Mountain time schools.

The state Supreme Court struck down a ban on guns at the University of Utah, saying campus officials cannot adopt a policy that runs counter to state law. The 44,000 students, faculty and staff on the Salt Lake City campus are subject to the gun ban. Those who violate it can be expelled from school. The university will keep the ban in place while the matter is considered in federal court, President Michael Young said.

Utah may not be a Pacific 10 Conference school, but that hasn't stopped the Utes from making Southern California players a core of their program. On Saturday, Utah will face UCLA at the Rose Bowl with at least 26 players on the roster with ties to local area high schools or junior colleges. "Southern Cal, no question is a hotbed for us," Utah Coach Kyle Whittingham said. "It's been a staple for Utah recruiting ever since I've been here, which is 13 years."

An unscheduled airplane landing briefly delayed Utah center Andrew Bogut's national player-of-the-year tour, but the trip ended as expected Saturday when the Australian All-American became the first foreign recipient of the John R. Wooden Award.

Don't worry, Californians, you still have a team in the NCAA tournament. Don't think that just because UCLA, Stanford, Pacific (told you) and St. Mary's didn't make it past Saturday that there's no local team left to cheer. My peeps, presenting SoCal's squad: the Utah Utes. Or, as Arte Moreno would call them, the Los Angeles Utes of Utah. Utah? But it's in ... Utah. And with Andrew Bogut at center, aren't they Australia's team? Do a quick background check.

Having a projected NBA lottery pick to go to at the end of a close game is an advantage for Utah, but Texas El Paso did everything it could to keep Andrew Bogut from getting the ball. The Miners were going to force someone else to beat them in an NCAA first-round game at the McKale Center. Unfortunately for UTEP, someone else did -- Marc Jackson's jump shot broke a tie with 39 seconds remaining and propelled Utah to a 60-54 victory.

Utah Coach Urban Meyer didn't want to hear the word "unbeaten" from the Utes last summer. Meyer was angry when a few Utes let the word slip when talking about the upcoming season and what the Utes could be in a position to do. But this week, he's liking the sound of it. "To think that there's four or five teams in major football undefeated, I never thought that would happen because teams are too good," Meyer said. The Utes are one of four Division I-A unbeatens.

The day started with snowflakes dropping from the sky and ended with flying tortillas. Only Utah could have made that happen. Six years after the bowl championship series was created, No. 5 Utah almost certainly became the first team from a non-BCS conference to earn a major-bowl bid Saturday night when it defeated Brigham Young, 52-21, before a crowd of 45,326 at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Utah improved to 11-0 with the historic victory and is likely headed to the Jan.
