Football recruiting: The Pac-12’s primary talent pool is shrinking faster than those of other Power Five conferences

Whether he’s recruiting in the Pacific Northwest, Texas or any cranny in between, Washington football coach Chris Petersen always asks high school coaches about numbers. Not uniform numbers. Not heights and weights. Not 40 times and reps on the bench. Petersen wants to know about player participation. “How are your umbers?” The responses from coaches in one state — for the Pac-12, the most important state — are not encouraging. High school football participation in California is declining, rapid...

There have been at least 680 cases and over 400 deaths since then. Ebola cases continue to increase.

With little learning happening inside strike-humbled LAUSD schools, high achievers feel the pressure not to fall behind

Jaimie Lee and Dalia Elrih, juniors at Los Angeles Unified School District’s John Marshall High School, have the same ambitious class schedule: AP Chemistry, AP English, AP Environmental Science, AP Calculus and honors U.S. History. The two picketed with striking LAUSD teachers outside the school on Monday and joined a UTLA rally downtown. But in the days since, they’ve veered in different directions absent teachers — one hitting the books at school and the other at home — in an attempt to stay ...

The rise of (societal) resilience tech

If you follow millennials on Twitter (and god help you), then you know that Anne Helen Petersen’s piece this past weekend “How Millennials Became The Burnout Generation” struck a deep chord for many. It’s longform and detailed, but Petersen’s primary thesis is that my generation has been dumped into one of the worst moments for economic and social mobility in recent memory (global financial crisis, etc.), which has led us to massively over-optimize our lives to try to extract any value we can.

Washington’s loss to Ohio State in Rose Bowl another setback for Pac-12

PASADENA — Tuesday brought more postseason disappointment for the Pac-12. With Washington’s 28-23 loss to Ohio State in the 105th Rose Bowl, the conference was left subject to continued scrutiny for how its teams have fared in the recent bowl seasons, particularly on some of the biggest stages. Many of the conference’s woeful performances spanned last season when it went 1-8 in bowl games, the worst-ever mark for a Power 5 Conference. The results have been better this winter, but only gradually....

And it’s been 18 years since Washington’s last trip t...

Whicker: Cal Petersen passed his Kings audition, and the main stage awaits

EL SEGUNDO — A pair of shiny new Koho goalie pads sat under the Petersen family tree, 15 years ago. The dad, Eric Petersen, had played goal at Bethel, a Division III school in St. Paul, Minn. The son, Cal, was only eight. He already had an eye on the net and all the cool equipment that comes with it. Eric wasn’t so sure. “It’s such a tough position,” Eric said, from his home in Waterloo, Iowa. “You can’t have an off night. You have to bring it every night, and a lot of things depend on you.
