Thursday a.m. links

The second practice of the spring is set for later today at 4 p.m. Weather.com says it will be raining and 49 degrees then. Guess at least it’s not snowing.
Anyway, on with a few links:
—- UW coach Steve Sarkisian is submitting his own top five from every practice on his blog. His players of the day were MLB Donald Butler and TE Chris Izbicki. The play of the day the play-action pass from Jake Locker to Izbicki and the coach of the day RB coach Joel Thomas, whose quote apparently sounds like some sort of inside joke. (Though I think I might have had a more colorful quote or two from the coaches) Another neat way for the coaches to keep the fans in touch.
— ESPN.com’s Bruce Feldman lists Locker No. 1 among his players who may benefit from a coaching change. Feldman also writes that some NFL scouts have told him Locker may have a better pro future as a safety. Despite that, really don’t think you’ll ever see that during his time at UW.
— The Seattle Weekly has some fun with Sarkisian’s themes for every practice.
BusterSports reviews the tight end situation in the Pac-10 over the last 10 years and notes that Washington’s downfall can be traced to when it stopped producing draftable players at that spot.
— In one interesting link from around the conference, the LA Daily News says UCLA’s QB job could be Kevin Prince’s to lose. If you recall, Prince was committed to UW for a while, to become a member of the Class of 2008, before changing his mind after Rick Neuheisel got the Bruins job. At the time, it was thought he might go on a mission, so many didn’t lament the immediate loss all that much. But he now says he may hold off on the mission so he can take advantage of the chance to play at UCLA.
All for now.
