Thursday night notes

As you may have read, newspapers are struggling along with the rest of the economy (and even a little more for a variety of reasons). And one impact here is that all of us have to take five days of furlough (meaning unpaid days off) at some point the rest of the year.
My reason for explaining that is that I’m going to try to take mine the next few weeks, when things are a little slow, and on those days I can’t do any work even if the Pac-10 decided to drop football or something — no jokes from SEC fans, please. One of those days, the first of the ones I must take, is tomorrow.
So to paraphrase CSN, just a few notes (and links) before I go — I’ll be back by Monday at the latest and should anything really newsworthy happen, I’m sure we’ll get it on here.
— Times colleges reporter Bud Withers has a good post-spring look at the Pac-10.
— In more proof that great minds think alike, ESPN’s Ted Miller also unleashed one of his spring wrapups today with this list of the “best of spring” in the Pac-10. Not much mention of UW, however, other than naming Jake Locker’s spring game performance as the second-best in the conference.
Nick Daschel of Buster Sports writes that Pac-10 games might be a little lower scoring next season than they have been.
— Interesting news out of Oregon tonight where WR Aaron Pflugrad has asked for and been granted his request to transfer. Pflugrad is the son of former Oregon WR coach Robin Pflugrad who was let go by the Ducks at the end of last season and known to be interested in coming to UW before the Huskies instead hired Jimmie Dougherty. Robin Pflugrad worked as a volunteer at Montana in the spring. Here’s more from the Eugene Register-Guard.
— A story in Thursday’s paper on cutbacks at UW reported the school has sold 37,700 football season tickets for next season. A UW spokesman said Thursday afternoon that updated figures show the total is now at 38,750.
— Among those laid off in the UW athletic department Thursday were Leslie Wurzberger, the associate athletic director for marketing, and Carol Parrish, the director of marketing. Wurzberger is also the wife of UW men’s soccer coach Dean Wurzberger and has worked in the UW athletic department since 1991 and is a graduate of UW. Parrish had worked in the department since 1996 and is also a graduate of UW.
All for now.
