Some Southern California business owners will defy governor’s coronavirus shutdown order

From the apple-growing foothills of Oak Glen to the Pacific Ocean, owners of restaurants, wineries, resorts, hair salons and other enterprises said they would defy the coronavirus shutdown taking effect a minute before midnight on Sunday, Dec. 6. In the midst of a holiday shopping season dramatically reshaped by the COVID-19 pandemic, some Southern California small business operators were making the calculated choice to stay open — or continue offering outdoor dining — at the risk of being shut ...

USC notebook: Young linemen get chance to play against Washington State

LOS ANGELES — USC had enough offensive linemen return from quarantine to play Washington State on Sunday, but still had enough absences that the Trojans had to turn to a true freshman for his first career start. USC was down three offensive linemen for the 38-13 win: Starting left guard Andrew Vorhees, his backup Liam Douglass and second-string center Justin Dedich. With the two-deep at left guard depleted, true freshman Courtland Ford made his first career start. The hulking 6-foot-5 Texan was ...

Alexander: Could Cam Akers emerge as the Rams’ feature back?

The assumption all along this season has been that the Rams personified the dreaded cliché, running back by committee. Three runners were assigned to handle the job once held by Todd Gurley, sharing the load and reinforcing the recent NFL wisdom that running backs are expendable. Much of that, of course, is a matter of football economics. Quarterbacks, wide receivers, dynamic pass rushers and cornerbacks get the big contracts. Running backs used to but now the attitude in front offices is that t...

Rams’ Troy Hill picks right time for big play in win over Arizona

Big talk is not Troy Hill’s game. Big plays are. After the cornerback’s interception and touchdown sealed the Rams’ 38-28 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Glendale, Ariz., it was up to others to say just how big it felt. “It was huge,” Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald said. “When we needed it the most, he came through for us today.” Hill jumped in front of receiver Andy Isabella, picked off Kyler Murray’s pass and ran it back 35 yards along the left sideline to push the lead to ...

Lakers begin an atypical training camp with patience and caution

On the first day of the Lakers’ training camp, coach Frank Vogel looked around and saw less than he had last year. Less conditioning. Less familiarity. Fewer staffers and available short-contract players. Even the Lakers’ main roster was not whole, with Quinn Cook (testing protocols) and Alfonzo McKinnie (excused absence) not in practice. There’s less time, too, with a preseason game against the Clippers coming on Friday, Dec. 11. “We’re very much more shorthanded than we would have been this ti...
