Tuesday a.m. links —- including uniforms and changes to the blog

I’ve had three requests for pictures of the new uniforms in just the last 12 hours or so, meaning it appears some of you may have missed all the initial discussion on this when they were unveiled on the day of the Spring Game.
So here they are in all their glory. Here also is a story from the school’s athletic site on the uniforms (second item down). I’ve gotten a few questions asking me what I think of them. I thought they’d be a little more old-schoolish based on what I heard going in so, and I thought the gold would be a little more, well, gold. But I’m betting they look a little better when there are actual players in them running around the field. They might really look good against Idaho.
Anyway, on to a few other links. …
Nick Daschel of Buster Sports says no team will go undefeated and no team will go winless this year in the Pac-10.
— Daschel also writes that the conference will have as much offensive balance this year as it has had in quite a while with teams shifting more to the run. That was actually something I noticed anew doing some research for some stuff I do for Lindy’s recently. USC’s conference-high 259.9 yards passing last season, for instance, was the lowest in the conference since 1990. Five teams, meanwhile, averaged 158 yards or more rushing, which as recently as 2002 would have led the Pac-10. With a number of good running backs returning this year — that could be the best position in the league — it’s trend that figures to continue.
— USA Today has this wrapup of spring football nationally, including a mention of Jake Locker.
— ESPN’s Bruce Feldman lists Locker as one of his 10 breakout players of the spring.
CHANGES TO THE BLOG — Also, you may have noticed that the comments for the last four blog posts have disappeared. This was necessary to make some technical changes in the blog (which are occurring to all the Times’ blogs and is done by the higher-ups here, not me). Among the changes is that it will be easier to add photos (something we will definitely have on here by the time fall camp rolls around) and it will also be easier to find the blogs themselves. They previously have been treated differently than stories in terms of where they are placed and categorized on the web site, etc. Now they will essentially be the same so they should be easier to locate and traffic should increase, apparently. They also made some behind-the-scenes changes in the way we post, etc.
