6:04 pm
44%. by comparison stanford was graduating at better than 90%. in 2013 while college football team was posting the worst record in the pac-12, in terms of graduation rates the team was also losing to almost every other university in the country. today, the uc regents were ready to vote on a plan that would require coaches to graduate slightly more than 50% of the players, but lieutenant governor gavin newsom pointed out that standard already exists. >> it's the lowest standard that the ncaa currently provides. >> reporter: newsom told the board the ncaa standards already in place state that if a team falls below the minimum academic progress rate or apr, then it is not eligible for ncaa tournaments or postseason play and the coaches would already be forfeiting their performance bonuses, making the rejenlt's new standards meaningless. >> it was the old adage in

all right. thank you very much christie. a south bay attorney finds himself tonight on the wrong side of the law. police arrested wendell jones of campbell. he's charged with defrauding home owners by illegally charging them allegedly thousands of dollars to reportedly save them from foreclosure. prosecutors say such fees are illegal. they also say jones was doing little or no work at all and at least one homeowner ended up losing his home. jones' law license had already been suspended for taking fees to modify loans. now he faces additional charges for practicing law on a suspended license. he's back in court next month. there will be fewer shreks and kung fu pandas. tonight dreamworks animation maker of those popular movie, says it will cut 500 jobs close its redwood city studio seen here on its opening day, and also cut back on the number of movies it makes each year. the company says some of the employees in redwood city will
6:19 pm
be offered jobs at its southern california headquarters. does it pay to drive for uber? that depend on how much you crunch the numbers and how you crunch the numbers. the san francisco-based company released new data today that appears to show its drivers make an average of roughly $6 more per hour than the average taxi or limo driver. however, those numbers don't take into account the out of pocket costs that uber drivers face including gas, insurance, maintenance, and the depreciation of the car's value. by one estimate that adds up to about $7.20 an hour in expenses for new york drivers who work in 40-hour week. international travel could open in the south bay with direct flights from san jose to china. this week's china's hainan airlines applied to the department of transportation to start service at san jose international. it wants to schedule five direct flights per week to beijing. since it already operates in three other u.s. city clearance to add san jose to its roster is

6:21 pm
and as it does so we're also going to see these dry offshore winds pushing some hotter air from the interior valleys right here across the bay area. that will also give us some warmer weather at the beaches as well. here's the overall weather trend. again tomorrow averaging about 70. by sunday, that is the peak of the heat the south bay will be at 76 degrees, for the pence lashgs also looking at low 70s by saturday mid-70s by sunday san francisco even getting in on this trend with low 70s. and for the north bay, east shore, and tri valley it will be around the 70s with possibly topping out at 77 in the north bay by sunday's forecast. as we mentioned, it is going to be good for some beach weather here in santa cruz. we'll talk more about our chances of rain and when that could happen in about 20 minutes. >> we need to wash that convertible. the nbc convertible. >> next week. coming up the motor city speaking of car, rolling into the bay area. what's at stake for one of the biggest names in the auto industry. and he's wanted for robbing

6:30 pm
belichick. in a separate news conference, the coach said he was also shocked to hear about the possible rules violation. >> in my entire coaching career i have never talked with any player staff member about football air pressure. >> reporter: critics were quick to question belichick's statement, noting that he's known for being a, quote, control freak and wants to manage every aspect of the team and the game. and he and the team have been caught cheating before. back in 2007 for illegally videotaping the opposing team's defensive signals. meanwhile, the rest of the patriots players say they're just trying to focus on the super bowl against seattle in ten days. >> this is the biggest game of our year and we're very excited and we're trying to get ready to win this game. >> reporter: the nfl says it's investigating but brady said he had not been interviewed by the league yet. >> everyone is trying to figure out what happened. >> more football legends
6:31 pm
weighing in tonight, hines ward and troy aikman. both said if the nfl find there was cheating involved the punishment needs to be harsh, a hefty fine or losing a draft pick is nothing for the patriots. there should be coaching or player suspensions. jessica? >> thank you very much janelle. tom brady did, indeed use deflated football it doesn't seem like it helped statistically. according to nbc sports properly inflated footballs were used in the second half of the game however his stats were worse in the first half when he allegedly used the deflated footballs. in the first two quarters the star qb xleepted roughly half his passes for just 95 yards. he threw just one touchdown and one interception. in the second half brady was almost perfect. he threw just two incomplete passes connected for two touchdowns, and had no interceptions. a follow-up on the mysterious goo that's killing local sea bird. near lay week after the gray gunk appeared on our shorelines of the bay, the fish and
