    While a growing coalition of Californians — including a San Jose mayoral candidate — rally against a new state law that puts an end to traditional single-family zoning restrictions in most neighborhoods across the state, San Jose is considering going beyond what the law requires of it to further ease its housing crisis. Senate Bill 9, which Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law in September, allows property owners to split a property originally zoned for a single-family home into two lots and build up to four units. The new law, which takes effect on Jan. 1, does not apply to properties within a historic district or lots with zoning designations that already allow for duplexes. Yet, in San Jose, a proposal presented by city planners and endorsed by the city’s planning commission would explore applying the increased density parameters of SB9 to properties in those areas of the city as well. “We have a shortage of housing units of all kinds,” said Planning Commissioner Michael Young, calling SB 9 “a little piece of the puzzle” for addressing the city’s housing crisis....
    Los Angeles police recently arrested 14 suspects in connection with 11 "smash and grab" robberies in the city in late November – but all 14 suspects are back on the street, the city’s police chief says. The reason? The state of California’s "zero bail" policy, Chief Michel Moore told reporters at a Thursday evening news conference, according to FOX 11 of Los Angeles. "All the suspects taken into custody are out of custody, either as a result of one juvenile, or the others as a result of bailing out or zero-bail criteria," Moore said.

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Jake Haener threw for 343 yards with four touchdowns and Fresno State defeated San Jose State 40-9 on Thursday, winning its fourth Mountain West Conference Thanksgiving Day game. Fresno State (9-3, 6-2) ended the first half with back-to-back touchdowns three minutes apart, then opened the second half with a field goal and a touchdown to break away from San Jose State (5-7, 3-5).

    SAN JOSE – The Battle for the Valley Trophy wasn’t much of a contest as San Jose State tasted defeat one final time on Thanksgiving Day, 40-9, against rival Fresno State. The Spartans (5-7, 3-5 Mountain West) failed to qualify for a bowl game in the regular-season finale after a second-consecutive rout at CEFCU Stadium in front of 15,323 fans. Last year’s Mountain West title and perfect regular season must seem like a mirage after San Jose State finished with an identical record to its pre-pandemic 2019 campaign. The Spartans trailed 23-9 at intermission after settling for field goals by Matt Mercurio during three trips into the red zone and never established any momentum on offense. San Jose State QB Nick Starkel – 19-of-42 for 260 yards – and his likely successor Nick Nash each lost fumbles in the first half as turnovers plagued the team to the end.

    There’s no point in denying that San Jose State failed to meet expectations in 2021. Coming off an unbeaten regular season to claim the program’s first Mountain West title, the Spartans fell flat multiple times this fall as the hype from an unprecedented campaign didn’t deliver a worthy encore performance. All is not lost, though. Thanksgiving Day is a chance for repentance at San Jose State (5-6, 3-4 Mountain West), which faces a must-win scenario to qualify for back-to-back bowl games for the first time in 35 years. Standing in the way is none other than rival Fresno State in the eighth rendition for the Battle of the Valley Trophy (Fresno State holds a 42-38-3 edge in the series history overall). “I don’t love where we’re at right now in terms of our record,” San Jose State coach Brent Brennan said. “I think that’s disappointing for everybody involved with Spartan football because we did have high expectations, so this game is huge for us.” Brennan, in his fifth season at the helm, could’ve left...

    San Jose State has a lot on its plate Thanksgiving Day at CEFCU Stadium. Not only is the Battle of the Valley Trophy up for grabs for an eighth time, but the Spartans (5-6, 3-4 Mountain West) find themselves in desperate need of a victory in the regular-season finale against rival Fresno State to become bowl eligible. “It’s kind of like a playoff game,” SJSU left tackle Jack Snyder said. “If we win, we get to keep playing, so it’s kind of like all the cards are on the table.” The problem is the Bulldogs (8-3, 5-2) also don’t lack for motivation, considering a victory will secure the Mountain Division title and a spot in the conference championship game – as long as Boise State defeats No. 22 San Diego State on Friday. The Spartans, who closed out their 2019 campaign with a win over the Bulldogs, look forward to the challenge after last year’s matchup was canceled due to COVID-19 complications. “It’s Thanksgiving, we’re on national TV, we’re playing a meaningful game in November,...

    San Jose State has announced that it reached a $3.3-million settlement with 15 former student athletes who were reportedly sexually harassed by a longtime sports trainer. The payout follows a federal civil rights investigation that found San Jose State did not take adequate action in response to the athletes’ reports and retaliated against two employees who raised repeated concerns to the university about Scott Shaw, the former trainer and director of sports medicine. Allegations against Shaw date back to December 2009, when several female student athletes reported that the trainer had touched their breasts, groins, buttocks and/or pubic areas during treatment that was described to them as “trigger-point therapy” or “pressure-point therapy,” according to a report released in September by the U.S. Justice Department. Former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar was accused of similar abuse. As recently as February 2020, a student alleged improper touching by Shaw, but he continued to work at the university until he retired in August 2020. Shaw’s attorney could not immediately be reached for comment. He has previously denied allegations, according to multiple news...

California State University Chancellor Joseph Castro announced Monday that he has appointed Stephen Perez, provost and vice president of academic affairs at Sacramento State University. Perez will serve as interim president. Perez, an economics professor, will begin his new role on Jan. 3. Papazian is set to step down on Dec. 21. Vincent Del Casino, senior vice president for academic affairs at the school, will be in charge during the brief window after Papazian leaves and Perez begins. In a statement, Castro praised Perez’s leadership. “His passion for increasing opportunity for all students and his track record of building collaborative relationships with students, faculty and staff will ensure that SJSU continues on its upward trajectory during this time of transition,” the chancellor said. Perez’s arrival comes as the school is still reeling from a sexual harassment scandal at the university’s athletics department. On Friday, the school said it had reached a $3.3 million settlement with 15 former student-athletes...
    Timmy Allen was an all Pac-12 first-team forward at Utah last season. He has not become self-satisfied or complacent at Texas, and wants to expand his range. The senior forward has been working on his 3-pointer, and made his only attempt on Saturday night as part of his 17 points to help No. 8 Texas beat San Jose State 79-45. Allen, who is one of seven who transferred to play for first-year Texas coach Chris Beard this season, averaged 17.2 points and 6.4 rebounds a game last season, but converted only 11 of 41 3-pointers (26.8%). He's hit 3 of 6 early this season. It's a start. "A lot of hours in the gym," Allen said. "A lot of time, a lot of detail, a lot of film."

    STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Freshman Harrison Ingram scored 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for his first career double-double and senior Jaidan Delaire came off the bench to score 19 and spark Stanford to a 76-62 victory over San Jose State in nonconference play Monday night. Omari Moore finished with 23 points for San Jose State (1-1), helping the Spartans take a 38-29 lead into halftime.

    SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A woman offering immigration services in San Jose is facing charges for allegedly defrauding customers seeking help in their applications, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. Detectives with the Notario Fraud Unit said a husband and wife came forward, saying they paid the suspect about $5,000 to complete a citizenship and visa application.

    SAN JOSE – San Jose State has 11 days, and one game, to get itself into the postseason. Beat Fresno State on Thanksgiving Day, and it will be a happy holiday. Lose, and the season is over. “That’s a real thing for all of our seniors,” said San Jose State quarterback Nick Starkel, a sixth-year SEC transfer from Arkansas and Texas A&M. “It means a lot to us. I know that I’m not just speaking for myself when I say that this game really is the most important game that I’ve ever played in, just because of all the implications behind it.” The Spartans (5-6) could have locked up a bowl bid Saturday night. Instead, they suffered their most lopsided loss of the season — a 48-17 beatdown from Utah State in front of a crowd of 15,135 that was expecting to party after SJSU jumped out to a 14-0 lead. “I’m frustrated for our players, I’m frustrated for everybody at San Jose State because this was a really, really important game for us,” SJSU coach...

    SAN JOSE – Already eliminated from contention for a Mountain West conference title, San Jose State failed to play the role of spoiler Saturday night at CEFCU Stadium in front of 15,135 fans. The optimism of an early two-touchdown edge quickly dissipated as visiting Utah State reeled off 24 unanswered points to close out the first half en route to a 48-17 victory – the most points allowed by the Spartans in any game this season. SJSU (5-6, 3-4 Mountain West) now faces the prospect of missing out on a bowl game with the lone remaining game on the schedule a Thanksgiving Day tilt against Fresno State (8-3, 5-2). The Spartans jumped ahead after an interception and a fumble recovery led to a pair of touchdowns within the span of a minute and 44 seconds. First came a 58-yard pick-six by sophomore cornerback Kenyon Reed with 1:10 left in the first quarter. Then it was defensive end Junior Fehoko with a sack-fumble that fellow bookend Cade Hall recovered just 58 seconds later. Three plays later running...

    For the entire month of October, San Jose State coach Brent Brennan constantly rebuffed questions about the availability of quarterback Nick Starkel as he recovered from an injury suffered at the end of September. Now that Starkel returned to action last week by splitting reps with his former backup Nick Nash, the question is who will take the reins Saturday (7:30 p.m., FS1) against Utah State? Not surprisingly, Brennan kept his answer as vague as possible this week. “We can feel confident that someone named Nick is going to be lined up at quarterback,” Brennan said. “They’re both are going to play, excited to see them play. I think Nick Nash has made great strides over the last month and it was really fun to have Nick Starkel back.” The Spartans (5-5, 3-3 Mountain West) are “still a work in progress” according to Brennan with a pair of home games left in the regular season. Meanwhile, Utah State (7-2, 4-1) sits atop the standings in the Mountain Division and is one of the favorites to...
    It’s time to stop the centralizing and rigid state land-use rules that harm our ability to have a voice in the way our community grows. Senate Bill 9, which was recently passed by the state Legislature, is the ultimate override of local land-use control. This new state mandate means a developer can demolish the house right next door to you and build a multi-unit and multi-story complex — and you have no say in the matter. Your local city officials have no say in the matter. These laws are blank checks to developers. Taking away our neighborhood’s voices is not the way to build a community. It’s the way to tell a community, “Sit down and be quiet” because Sacramento politicians know better than you do about what your community needs. I was honored to be the first in the state to sign the initiative to restore what Sacramento politicians have taken away. Nearly everyone agrees we need more housing. In particular, we need housing that more people can afford. That is why as a San Jose City Councilwoman, I...
    SAN JOSE — Cal State Fullerton erased a double-digit second-half deficit on the road Thursday night only to lose in frustrating fashion. Trey Smith’s fadeaway jumper from 13 feet at the buzzer gave San Jose State a 78-76 season-opening victory over the Titans. Smith caught Trey Anderson’s baseline miss when it ricocheted hard off the rim, turned and made the basket as time expired.

    San Jose residents who want to keep the decades-old ban on new billboards got a boost this week after the city’s airport commission overwhelmingly voted against adding two LED-illuminated signs along Highway 101. “This project needs to be put on the backburner and then never surface again,” said San Jose airport commissioner Catherine Hendrix. “We have a beautiful city, and if we allow two, we’re going to have to allow a lot more.” Under the proposal, which the city council is expected to make a final decision on later this month, airport officials have requested permission to enter an agreement with the media company Clear Channel, allowing it to build two new electronic billboards — each measuring 1,000 square feet in size — along the highway on Mineta San Jose International Airport property. If approved, city officials anticipate that the project will bring in an additional $490,000 a year for the airport — a boost of just .3% to its annual budget. The airport also would be allowed to use 10% of the advertising time on the billboards to promote airport services....

    San Jose State quarterback Nick Starkel didn’t hide his frustration Saturday night after a 27-24 loss at Nevada in his return from an injury that kept him out all of October. “I hate losing,” said Starkel, who engineered a game-tying touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter. “It doesn’t feel good, no matter how you put it – especially games like that. We play this game to play meaningful games in November and that was a meaningful game for us. It hurts.” The Spartans (5-5, 3-3 Mountain West) won’t repeat as conference champions, and they squandered a golden opportunity to become bowl eligible after Nevada quarterback Carson Strong drove the Wolf Pack into field-goal range by converting a fourth down with less than 30 seconds left. Moments later, Nevada place kicker Brandon Talton, who missed three tries in the first half, split the uprights from 45 yards out with three seconds left. It doesn’t get any easier with two home games left at CEFCU Stadium against Utah State (7-2, 4-1) next week, then Fresno State (7-3,...
    RENO, Nev. (AP) — Brandon Talton kicked a 45-yard field goal with 3 seconds left in the game and Nevada used two defensive touchdowns to fend off San Jose State 27-24 in Mountain West Conference play on Saturday. Nevada (7-2, 4-1) got on the scoreboard first when Jordan Lee caused a Tyler Nevens fumble that was picked up by Daiyan Henley and returned 55 yards for a touchdown. San Jose State (5-5, 3-3) answered with Nick Starkel’s 5-yard TD pass to Nevens, knotting the score at 7 after one quarter. The Wolf Pack regained the lead 3:05 into the third quarter when Berdale Robins picked off a Starkel pass and raced 75 yards for a touchdown. Nevada stretched its lead to 17-7 on a 51-yard field goal by Talton before Starkel fired a 48-yard scoring strike to Malikhi Miller to get the Spartans within three points heading to the final quarter. Matt Mercurio’s 34-yard field goal knotted the score at 17 with 10:05 left in the game, but Carson Strong delivered a 20-yard scoring strike to Romeo Doubs to put...
    San Jose State squandered a golden opportunity to become bowl eligible Saturday night on the road with a 27-24 loss at Nevada. SJSU quarterback Nick Starkel, in his return to action after a five-game absence due to an injury, nearly engineered an upset with a game-tying touchdown drive in the final two minutes. But Nevada quarterback Carson Strong drove the Wolf Pack into field-goal range by converting a fourth down with under 30 seconds left. Place kicker Brandon Talton, who missed three tries in the first half, split the uprights from 45 yards out with three seconds left. The Spartans (5-5, 3-3 Mountain West), who would qualify for a bowl game with six wins, lost in Reno for a 10th straight time and haven’t won at Mackay Stadium since 2000. Backup QB Nick Nash split time with Starkel in the first and third quarters, but the sixth-year veteran took over down the stretch and finished 21-of-40 for 40 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. San Jose State not only lost the turnover battle,...

    San Jose State coach Brent Brennan is well aware of the benefits of qualifying for a bowl game after achieving the feat last season for the first time in four tries as the Mountain West champion. “It’s comparable to having an extra spring ball,” Brennan said. “In the month of December, they get two, three, four weeks of extra practice and then they get to play a game. That’s why, in my opinion, you see a lot of those teams are able to sustain a high level that way is because you get that extra work.” The Spartans (5-4, 3-2 Mountain West) are unlikely to defend their title considering they sit in fourth place in the Mountain Division. SJSU trails three teams in the standings: No. 23 Fresno State (7-2, 4-1), which it hosts on Thanksgiving Day in the regular-season finale. San Diego State (7-1, 3-1), who prevailed 19-13 in double overtime at CEFCU Stadium in mid-October. and Nevada (6-2, 3-1), the team the Spartans travel to face on Saturday.

    Nearly two years have passed since San Jose State President Mary Papazian and other top university administrators vowed to address housing insecurity on campus and ensure that every student had a safe and secure place to live. And while the university has recently made some positive steps toward this ambitious goal, a group representing thousands of unhoused students on campus is frustrated by the pace at which school administrators are moving — and what they see as policies hindering access to university assistance. “Instead of broken promises, we want to see action toward change,” said San Jose State senior Samantha Shinagawa. “We want hard dates, open communication with our students and efforts made toward helping the struggling population of housing insecure at San Jose State that is ever-growing.” SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – November 04: San Jose State University senior Samantha Shinagawa speaks during a rally on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2021, in San Jose, Calif.

    SAN JOSE – Back-to-back sacks by Cade Hall, the reigning Mountain West defensive player of the year, in the final minutes helped San Jose State seal a 27-21 victory over Wyoming at CEFCU Stadium on Saturday afternoon in front of 13,042 fans. The Spartans (5-4, 3-2 Mountain West) need to win one of their final three games to become bowl eligible for the second year in a row. Their final road game is next week at Nevada (6-3, 3-1), which routed winless UNLV 51-20 on Friday. SJSU dual-threat quarterback Nick Nash heaved a crucial 44-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Charles Ross late in the third quarter for much-needed breathing room and also rushed for over 100 yards for a second consecutive week. The 6-foot-1, 184-pound junior, in his fifth career start at QB as the injury replacement to Nick Starkel, broke the program record for most career rushing yards by a quarterback with 797, surpassing the marks of both Kenny Potter (745) and Jeff Garcia (729). The Spartans, who led 17-7 at halftime, rushed for...

    San Jose State coach Brent Brennan, who grew up watching the Spartans with his father, doesn’t hide his affection for the school’s mascot. “Sammy the Spartan is my favorite logo in the conference,” Brennan said on Monday, “so much so that we have a dog named Sammy. It’s been kind of a family thing. We have two dogs, one is named Benny – after Benny the Beaver, when we were at Oregon State. “So we had Benny and Sammy holding down the fort during the atmospheric river last night and the hurricane that hit our city. They were going crazy.” Saturday’s matinee at CEFCU Stadium features Cowboy Joe vs. Sammy the Spartan. The early-afternoon kickoff against Wyoming is an opportunity for San Jose State (4-4, 2-2 Mountain West) to claim consecutive victories for the first time this season. “It’s a 1 o’clock kick, which is a rarity in my mind for Spartan football,” Brennan said. “So we’ve got a big week ahead of us to prepare for a very good Wyoming team.” The Cowboys...
    The stretch run for San Jose State will define how fans, boosters and those inside the program view the 2021 season. Sitting at .500 with four games left, the Spartans have experienced their fair share of ups and downs so far coming off last year’s magical Mountain West championship season. Back-to-back conference titles appear out of reach for the Spartans (4-4, 2-2 Mountain West) with No. 21 San Diego State (7-0, 3-0) still undefeated after surviving a double-overtime scare at CEFCU Stadium two weeks ago. San Jose State still has a chance to not only qualify for a bowl game, but to finish with a winning record in consecutive campaigns for the first time in 29 years. Saturday’s home game against Wyoming is the next challenge, and it only gets tougher after that with a trio of matchups against upper-echelon teams in the Mountain West – Nevada, Utah State and Fresno State. Two of those final three games — against the Aggies and a Thanksgiving date with the Bulldogs — are also at home. Meanwhile,...
    San Jose State Swim Coach Sage Hopkins and the university’s former deputy athletic director, Steve O’Brien, put their careers on the line to expose allegations of sexual abuse by a longtime athletic trainer. But they don’t want the spotlight. “This is not and should not be about me,” Hopkins said during a city commendation ceremony on Tuesday. “Our thoughts, empathy and passion should be with the dozens of survivors from six separate teams at San Jose State and our focus should be on their healing.” During the course of his 14-year tenure at San Jose State, former athletic trainer Scott Shaw inappropriately touched at least 23 female student-athletes, according to report released last month by federal investigators. Shaw resigned in August 2020 and is under criminal investigation by the FBI. Hopkins in 2009 was the first to bring forward allegations of more than a dozen female swimmers who contended that Shaw inappropriately touched them, reaching under their bras and underwear, during sports massages. Although the university cleared Shaw in its initial investigation in 2010, Hopkins...

    Head coach Brent Brennan didn’t rule out the need for a defibrillator, quarterback Nick Nash heard voices in his head, and for the first time in what must’ve felt like an eternity the ball bounced in favor of San Jose State. A sack by linebacker Kyle Harmon on the final play of the game sealed the Spartans dramatic \27-20 victory over UNLV on Thursday night in the Raiders’  Allegiant Stadium. San Jose State erased a two-touchdown deficit to break a two-game skid and climb back to .500 for the season, while the Rebels – who haven’t won since the regular-season finale in 2019 – suffered a 13th consecutive loss.

The Spartans have four regular season games remaining to reach the six wins needed for bowl consideration. ...

    San Jose State got back in the win column Thursday night, but it took a two-touchdown comeback to score a 27-20 victory over a Nevada-Las Vegas team that has lost 13 consecutive games. Spartans linebacker Kyle Harmon sealed the victory with a vicious sack on the final play as the Rebels were 11 yards away from possibly forcing overtime. San Jose State quarterback Nick Nash, in his fourth start as Nick Starkel’s replacement, shined under the bright lights at Allegiant Stadium, home of the former Oakland Raiders. The dual-threat QB scored the game-winning touchdown with 7:06 left in the fourth quarter on a 15-yard draw. Nash ran for 128 yards and threw for 213 with no interceptions. The Spartans also got a couple of TD runs from Tyler Nevens (1, 10). It wasn’t a picture-perfect triumph, considering San Jose State (4-4, 2-2 Mountain West) lost a fumble on the opening kickoff. Nash also coughed it up in the second quarter. Both turnovers put UNLV (0-7, 0-3) inside the red zone and turned into touchdowns...

    Last year’s Mountain West champion is no longer a Cinderella story, let alone a lock to qualify for a bowl game. As expected, San Jose State lost to No. 22 San Diego State on Friday with backup quarterback Nick Nash at the helm again. The Spartans (3-4, 1-2 Mountain West) haven’t produced back-to-back winning seasons since a four-year stretch from 1989 to 1992 – a span of nearly three decades. Next up is a trip to Sin City for what seems like a must-win matchup at winless UNLV (0-6, 0-2) on Thursday night. It’s not clear if starting quarterback and captain Nick Starkel will return from an injury to his left arm for that game, or at all this season. But there’s a sense of optimism after pushing San Diego State to the brink in a 19-13 double-overtime slugfest during which neither team found the end zone in regulation – the only such instance between FBS teams this season. San Jose State missed a 52-yard field goal in the final minute that could’ve sealed the...
    It’s amazing to think something that happened 53 years ago this month in Mexico City still matters. But it does, and especially at San Jose State. That’s because on Oct. 16, 1968, Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their gloved fists on the Olympic medal podium after winning gold and bronze medals in a symbol of protest over the treatment Black Americans faced at home. It was a powerful moment that San Jose State did not celebrate for years until a group led by students pushed to have larger-than-life statues of the athletes placed at the center of campus in 2005. Robert Griffin, a former De Anza College administrator who was Tommie Smith’s roommate in the “Speed City” era, speaks on Oct. 19, 2021, at San Jose State at an event marking the 53rd anniversary of the famous Olympic protest by Smith and John Carlos. (Sal Pizarro/Staff)  “The actions they took that day still reverberate in the world, in the nation and on this campus,” San Jose State Sociology Professor Scott Myers-Lipton said Tuesday at a celebration to mark the...
    San Jose State returned to work over the weekend with only six days to prepare for a Thursday night contest in Las Vegas. The Spartans (3-4, 1-2 Mountain West) were unable to hand No. 22-ranked San Diego State its first loss on Friday in a double-overtime thriller, playing with backup quarterback Nick Nash under center. They fell under .500 for the first time since finishing 5-7 during the 2019 campaign. “You don’t have time to dwell on that because you have to get ready to play really, really quickly,” San Jose State coach Brent Brennan said. “It’s a short week, but I think that’s a good thing,” he added. “We’re excited to play again.” Brennan turned his attention to winless UNLV (0-6, 0-2) on Saturday, which lost 28-24 to Utah State at Allegiant Stadium, home to both the Rebels and the Las Vegas Raiders. Though UNLV hasn’t won a game since November 2019, he came away rather impressed by his next opponent. “I watched most of the game in real time on Saturday,” Brennan...
