Believe it or not, there’s some non-recruiting news out there of interest, as well, so away we go. …
— Times college sports columnist Bud Withers has this on the Pac-10 meetings this weekend, which will be heavy on debating measures to cut costs, including possible cuts in travel squads for football and basketball. Withers, however, reports that what is likely not to be considered seriously is getting rid of the round-robin schedule for football. And in something I hadn’t seen mentioned on this topic previously, one reason to keep the round-robin schedule is money, that it might be more expensive to find another non-conference opponent than playing all nine conference teams.
Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News also says not to expect any movement on the round-robin schedule and also says not to expect any major changes in the conference’s bowl agreements — all but the Rose Bowl are up for renewal after this season.
Nick Daschel of Buster Sports weighs in on why it’s unlikely the Pac-10 will expand any time soon (something I’ve been writing on here, as well — there’s no serious thought right now to expanding the conference).
Phil Steele is releasing some interesting stuff every day on his blog including this breakdown of the experience level of every team in the country. He rates UW as the 13th most experienced team in the country.
— And, well, here’s one recruiting story after all, a good look at QB Jesse Scroggins from ESPN’s Bruce Feldman. Also included is a note on Jake Locker’s baseball potential.
All for now.
