Line: Rams by 14 TV/radio: FOX Ch. 11; 710-AM, 93.1-FM, 1330-AM (Spanish) RAMS OFFENSE vs. CARDINALS DEFENSE Arizona has been good on pass defense this season. Those looking for reasons the Cardinals can pull the upset this week can stop there, because there are no other reasons. But that is notable. Arizona has allowed opposing quarterbacks to throw for an average of only 7.0 yards per attempt, tied for sixth-lowest in the league, and the Cardinals have 41 sacks, which is tied for seventh. Chandler Jones leads the way there with 12 sacks and certainly will the focus for a Rams offense that needs to get back on track.

The widening split between blue areas and red areas was on graphic display during the recent midterms. And partisan polarization only hints at the depth of our tribalism. The nation that basically invented the middle class is struggling to cope with resentment between the haves and have-nots. Yet despite the intensity of our social divides, we struggle to describe them in any but the most superficial ways: rich vs. poor, rural vs. urban, “real” Americans vs. coastal elites.

Just as a DNA test tells us more than a blood pressure reading, examining the deeper cultural programming that defines America’s classes can help us better understand what’s happening to our … [Read more...] about An upper-class mindset doesn’t make you classy
Utah defended its home turf with ease on Friday night, defeating the Arizona Wildcats 42-10. Behind a nearly flawless performance from quarterback Tyler Huntley – who completed 14 of 19 passes for 201-yards and two scores, adding additional touchdowns as a runner and a receiver – the Utes offense drove methodically down the Wildcats' throat en route to 497 total yards. On the flip side of the ball, Arizona was forced to utilize a trio of signal-callers, each ultimately being abused in a different way. Season-long starter Khalil Tate exited the game on the team’s third offensive series and never returned. His presumed replacement, true freshman Jamarye Joiner, filled in for the hobbled quarterback for several series before handing off the reins to former head coach Rich Rodriguez’s son, Rhett. Despite piecing together more success than either of the other two passers – posting a final stat line that included 226 passing yards and one … [Read more...] about Analysis: ‘Cats unable to do much of anything right vs Utes

A new poll from the Public Policy Institute of California think tank — tracking opinions of 1,170 Californian adults — found a sometimes subtle but often noteworthy owner-renter gap that’s likely tied to the economic chasm between these housing segments. In a nutshell, owners are wealthier and their political leanings show it. Here are nine ways the poll got different results depending on whether it’s a homeowner or renter being surveyed … 1. Landlord limits: Let’s start with an issue you’d think is near and dear to renter’s wallets — more rent control. That’s what statewide Proposition 10 on the … [Read more...] about California homeowners vs. renters: 9 ways their politics clash
