Don James, starting his 19th season as the University of Washington's football coach, abruptly resigned Sunday, hours after the Pacific 10 Conference levied stiff penalties against the school for numerous rules infractions. The football team, which has appeared in the last three Rose Bowls, was placed on probation for two years and was banned from bowl games for the 1993 and 1994 seasons.

How odd is it that the two contenders in the Super Bowl -- the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos -- hail from the two states in the Union that have legalized sale and use of marijuana? Are there two activities more different than the amped-up aggression of professional football and the laid-back mellowness of smoking a joint? I've got nothing against Denver -- a perfectly fine city, as far as I'm concerned. But, as many of my readers know, I am a Seattle boy. My great-grandparents arrived in the muddy little town on the shore of Puget Sound in the 1880s.

Linebacker Marvcus Patton struggled for the words to describe what's gone wrong with UCLA's football team this season. "We never really expected to be 3-4," he said. "It's like it's unbelievable. It's like we really don't know where we're at." Mike Farr has an idea. "We've hit rock bottom," the senior flanker said. So they hope, anyway.

College football players don't get many days off, whether they're in season or not. But when Washington's football team gets a break, the JetBlue gate at Long Beach Airport is jammed with Huskies returning home from Seattle. "We're about 30 deep on that plane," starting quarterback Keith Price says, laughing. "Whenever they say 'free weekend,' those flights are booked. " Washington Coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff have carved a niche that draws heavily from Compton, Long Beach and other cities in the corridor near the 91, 105, 710 and 605 freeways, as well as Los Angeles.

This one's on Pete. The USC players trudged away with shoulders hunched against a chilly wind and obscene screams, but it wasn't about them. The Washington players and fans filled the field with twirling, bouncing, purple-stained glee, but it also wasn't about them. This one's on Pete. For several long minutes after USC's 16-13 loss to Washington on Saturday, Trojans Coach Pete Carroll stood at the edge of the Husky Stadium tunnel, staring ashen-faced back into the swarming mob as if peering into the smoking wreckage of a car he totaled.

Mel Miller, a two-year starter at cornerback who had been suspended for the first three games this season, has quit the Washington Huskies and will transfer, Coach Jim Lambright said. Miller, a junior from Torrance, sat out all of spring drills and training camp and was suspended for academic reasons. He also had been investigated in connection with an assault on campus that involved two other football players, but was not charged. Lambright said Miller approached him Tuesday about transferring.

USC opens the difficult final quarter of its season by trying to defeat Washington for the first time in three seasons. The Huskies have won 10 of their last 13 games, losing only to Nebraska, Stanford and Oregon. Staff writer Gary Klein examines the game's issues and matchups: Friends and rivals USC Coach Lane Kiffin this week dismissed questions about his wanting to beat Washington Coach Steve Sarkisian, saying it was about the players, the teams and everything other than his friend and former colleague.

In October, the Washington Huskies were a landslide choice as the Pacific 10 Conference's top dogs heading into the men's basketball season. And Coach Lorenzo Romar knew exactly what that meant. Nothing. "I wish they would give us the conference championship because of the voting," he said on the day the results were revealed. Instead, the title will be determined in a conference season that begins Wednesday, and the Huskies didn't draw a slouch for their opener.

It could be cold and nasty for UCLA on Thursday evening at Husky Stadium. The Bruins might prefer it that way. UCLA has made a habit of winning games in less-than-ideal conditions under Coach Rick Neuheisel . Temperatures hovered near freezing last November in Pullman, Wash., when UCLA romped to a 43-7 victory over Washington State. Neuheisel had prepared his players for the cold by holding a team meeting the previous night in a snowstorm. A month later, UCLA trekked to a frosty RFK Stadium in Washington and rallied for a 30-21 victory over Temple in the EagleBank Bowl.

Less than a year has gone by since Washington announced its emergence from college football purgatory. In a big way. The Huskies, coming off a winless season, a program in shambles, upset third-ranked USC on the way to a very respectable 2009 season. Hopes will run even higher this fall with Coach Steve Sarkisian entering his second year on the job and star quarterback Jake Locker resisting the NFL to return for one more go-around. So why is this team looking for something, well, less?

Memories are exceedingly short in sports, so it should come as no surprise that Washington Huskies fans are calling Saturday's 16-13 victory against USC the greatest upset in the school's history. In a Seattle Times Internet poll, 43 percent of respondents voted Saturdays triumph as the school's biggest upset, far outdistancing the runner-up -- Washington's 38-20 victory against No. 5 Miami in 1994 (31 percent). The Huskies' 1961 Rose Bowl upset of No. 1 Minnesota garnered only eight percent of the vote.

After losing convincingly at USC, the Washington Huskies have a new No. 1 tailback and new hope that they can find a running attack for the first time all season. At 5-3 and with a 3-2 record in the Pac-10, Washington needs to win at least one of its final three games--against Oregon, UCLA and Washington State--to qualify for a bowl game for the fourth year in a row.

The Washington Huskies landed one football player, but lost another. Charles Mincey, a cornerback from Pasadena City College, has told the Huskies he plans to sign a letter of intent Feb. 8 to play football for Washington. But Glen Cavanaugh, a 6-foot-4, 265-pound lineman from Gonzaga Prep High School in Spokane, said he will attend Stanford University, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported today. Washington and Washington State both recruited Cavanaugh.

Jon Brockman scored 20 points, Isaiah Thomas sparked a decisive second-half spurt with nine points and 13th-ranked Washington defeated Stanford, 85-73, in the Pacific-10 tournament quarterfinals Thursday at Staples Center.

The Huskies swept the regular-season series, winning the second game by three points in overtime. "Another tough opponent," Huskies Coach Lorenzo Romar said.
