Rams have Brandon Staley on their side for this Bears game

THOUSAND OAKS — They can laugh about it now, since they’re on the same side getting ready for a prime-time Rams-Chicago Bears game coming up on Monday. It wasn’t as much fun in 2018 for Brandon Staley, then one of the Bears’ assistant coaches trying to figure out how to stop the Rams’ offense, and for Sean McVay, then as now the Rams coach and play-caller. “It was stressful. It was a hard week of preparation,” Staley, who is in his first season as the Rams’ defensive coordinator, remembered Thur...

Voting by mail? Most Californians have preferred it over in-person voting for years

In the dramatic midterm elections of 2018, when the fate of the House and Senate hung in the balance and a new governor was about to be enthroned, two of every three votes tallied in California were cast via mail-in ballots rather than by in-person voting —even in the absence of a deadly pandemic. By-mail voting has long played a dominant role in Golden State democracy, so the ballot-in-every-mailbox experiment currently underway is not so much revolution as evolution. But understanding the part...

USC women’s basketball seeks tournament bid in 2020-21

Last year’s USC women’s basketball team was disproportionately young – three seniors and seven freshmen. It led to some serious growing pains, like the Trojans losing their first five Pac-12 games. But sometimes USC’s young talent won out, such as the stunning double-overtime victory over rival UCLA, which at the time was the only undefeated team in the country. Now all those freshmen, including Pac-12 Freshman of the Year Alissa Pili, are back and a year older, and head coach Mark Trakh hopes t...

California court says Uber, Lyft drivers are employees

A California appeals court on Thursday upheld an order requiring Uber and Lyft to treat their California drivers as employees instead of independent contractors, less than two weeks before voters will be asked to exempt the ride-hailing giants from the state’s gig economy law. The decision won’t have any immediate impact because it doesn’t take effect for at least 30 days, well after the Nov. 3 vote on Proposition 22. Uber and Lyft — who along with DoorDash have heavily bankrolled the ballot mea...

UCLA backup QB Colson Yankoff moving to wide receiver

When talking about UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson during a conference call Friday, UCLA coach Chip Kelly made a surprising revelation by announcing that Colson Yankoff, a highly regarded dual-threat quarterback who transferred to UCLA from Washington and sat out the 2019 season, had asked to be moved to wide receiver. Kelly granted him that wish. Yankoff was a four-star recruit at Coueur d’Alene HS in Washington and the No. 6-ranked dual-threat quarterback in his class in 2018 before ...

Rams see Kai Forbath as a seasoned alternative at kicker

THOUSAND OAKS — Help for the Rams’ kicking game is on the way, but exactly when Kai Forbath will get his chance is up in the air. Forbath, the former Notre Dame High (Sherman Oaks) and UCLA kicker whom the Rams signed on Tuesday, won’t be able to clear the league’s COVID-19 protocols and join the team until Sunday. That makes it likely that struggling rookie Samuel Sloman will still be kicking for the Rams (4-2) in their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears (5-1) — with Forbath, a nine-ye...

UCLA TE Greg Dulcich has teammates singing his praises

Many tight ends are battling for reps at a position UCLA coach Chip Kelly says he will use as aggressively as he has in the past. When wide receiver Kyle Philips was asked about the tight ends the Bruins will employ this season, the player that the redshirt sophomore receiver singled out and the compliments he paid were striking. UCLA tight end Greg Dulcich’s 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter of Saturday’s game against San Diego State capped a 14-play, 4-minute, 38-second drive. It was ...

UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson knows he needs to limit turnovers

Being your own biggest critic may be a quality that helps UCLA junior quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson when the Bruins open the season Nov. 7 at Colorado. Thompson-Robinson put up solid offensive numbers last year, throwing for 2,701 yards and 21 touchdowns, and everyone knows how dangerous he is with his feet. He returns with more game experience than any QB in the Pac-12, and will be one of the most feared dual threats at his position. But Thompson-Robinson wasn’t glowing about his experie...

Big West announces 2020-21 men’s and women’s basketball schedules, revised for coronavirus

The conference also announced it would hold its tournaments March 10-13 at Honda Center. Unlike past seasons, when games were played primarily Thursdays and Saturdays, the revised 2020-21 schedule calls for games to be played against the same opponent and at the same site mostly on Fridays and Saturdays rather than in...

Mapped: Coronavirus pushes California to nation’s 3rd highest jobless rate

With debate swirling over California’s tough pandemic-limiting tactics, new federal job stats show the state has the nation’s third-highest unemployment rate. Many business leaders think Gov. Gavin Newsom has been too cautious in reopening the state’s economy in the battle to slow the spread of coronavirus. And even the governor has admitted he’s being “stubborn” after a first round of reopenings in late spring were reversed. My trusty spreadsheet found some of the limitation’s economic pain in ...
