Aztecs finish in final top 25 polls for first time in 30 years
By Kirk Kenny - Contact Reporter
January 10, 2017
The San Diego State football team was ranked in the top 25 twice during the 2016 regular season. On both occasions, SDSU head coach Rocky Long shrugged.
“It won’t matter to most people unless we finish the season in the top 25,” Long said when the Aztecs were initially ranked. “If we finish the season in the top 25, obviously, it will make a big deal to our team, our fans and it will make a huge deal in recruiting. ...
“I don’t have any concern (with the ranking) myself because I don’t care. All I care about is winning games and winning a conference championship, and if we do that, then we’ll be ranked at the end of the year.”
Long was right about winning, but it was SDSU’s impressive 34-10 victory over Houston in the Las Vegas Bowl that placed the Aztecs into the season-ending rankings. That win came on Dec. 17, the opening day of bowl season, and the voters didn’t forget.

Donald Trump's Justice pick opposed tribal jurisdiction over non-Indians TUESDAY, JANUARY 10, 2017
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) was forced to admit that he opposed tribal jurisdiction over non-Indians as he went before the Senate for his confirmation hearing as Attorney General for Republican president-elect Donald Trump.
During his opening remarks to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Sessions veered from his prepared statement and said a number of his colleagues educated him about Indian Country. Specifically, they told him that the Department of Justice hasn't been doing enough to address violence against Native Americans.
"In our meetings over the past weeks, you have had the opportunity to share with me and your relating to the department from unprosecuted crimes on tribal lands, a matter that is greater than I had understood," Sessions told the committee. Read more >
Dakota Access executive confirms crude already placed in pipeline
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2017
Oil is already going into the Dakota Access Pipeline even though the final portion of the controversial project remains in limbo.
In a sworn declaration filed in federal court, a top Dakota Access executive did not detail exactly where the oil has been placed. But vice president Joey Mahmoud said it was near Lake Oahe in North Dakota.
"Crude oil has been placed in a portion of the pipeline leading up to Lake Oahe in anticipation of completing the pipeline and commencing full operation," Mahmoud said.
Additionally, Mahmoud said "entry and exit holes" have already been created on both sides of Lake Oahe. A "pilot hole" for a drill that will go under the Missouri River also has been "initiated and executed" up until property managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, he told the court. Read more >

Trump national security spokeswoman Monica Crowley to forgo post amid plagiarism charges Updated:JANUARY 17, 2017 — 8:11 AM EST
by John Wagner, Washington Post
Monica Crowley, recently appointed by President-elect Donald Trump to a key national security communications job, said Monday that she would relinquish the post amid multiple allegations of plagiarism.
Crowley, who has been named senior director of strategic communications at the National Security Council, said in a statement that "after much reflection," she had decided to remain in New York and "will not be taking a position in the incoming administration."
"I greatly appreciate being asked to be part of President-elect Trump's team and I will continue to enthusiastically support him and his agenda for American renewal," Crowley said in the statement, in which she made no mention of the plagiarism charges.
The publisher of a 2012 book by Crowley said last week that it will stop selling copies until she addresses allegations of plagiarism. Crowley, a conservative pundit, is also under fire for allegedly plagiarizing passages in her PhD dissertation at Columbia University. Read more >

UCLA Basketball: Bruins Remain at #4 In the AP Poll
by Mike Regalado1 day ago
The UCLA Basketball team stayed put in this week’s AP Poll as they remain the #4 ranked team in the nation.
After a home sweep over Cal and Stanford, the UCLA Basketball team (16-1, 3-1) remained the 4th best team in the nation according to the voters of the AP Poll.
It was thought that the Bruins would rise after #1 Villanova lost by eight points to the then-#18 Butler Bulldogs. The Wildcats only dropped two spots in the Top 25 and are #3 in front of the Bruins.
Last week, after UCLA lost to then-#21 Oregon, the Bruins also dropped two spots. The rub here is that UCLA were close to a win, but lost on a last second shot by Oregon’s Dillon Brooks.
Say what you will about any east coast bias, but the Bruins are still one of the top teams in the nation. UCLA got back on track to their dominating ways after they destroyed Stanford on Sunday, 89-75. Read more >
