Thursday links — spotlight on QBs, Husky Stadium

So what happened to spring?
— For my main story today I wrote about the progress being made this spring by QB Jake Locker in improving the accuracy of his passing.
Obviously, the real test comes when LSU rolls to town for the first game Sept. 5. But for now, UW coaches sound really happy with what they are seeing from Locker. As noted in the story, Doug Nussmeier mentioned two things in relation to Locker’s throwing — making sure he follows through completely (something he said Locker might have been a little hesitant with early on due to the thumb injury) and making sure his legs didn’t get too wide when he throws while moving in the pocket.
Locker said he’s made no big changes to his mechanics but that the coaches have done a good job keeping in him about sticking with his proper fundamentals, and that he also is feeling more comfortable with the playbook each day, which makes it easier to throw well.
Coach Steve Sarkisian also mentioned Ronnie Fouch several times when talking about the improved play of the QBs. A common question here is whether Fouch had his confidence so beaten down last year that it would make it hard to recover. Fouch says no, and pretty much brushes off talk of last season saying he just wants to focus on the present and that “I’m having fun out here.”
For what it’s worth, UW suddenly finds itself with about as much experience at the QB position as anyone in the Pac-10 with Arizona, Arizona State, USC, UCLA and Stanford all potentially going with new QBs and the others all with about the same level of experience as the Huskies.
— The other big story today is the news that SB 6116, the bill that could provide funding for a renovation of Husky Stadium, appears dead. Here’s a link. As mentioned previously, I think UW’s plan would be to sit back and try again next year.
