More Pac-10 media day notes

The stories produced from Pac-10 media day are beginning to pile up, so here are a few. …
Bud Withers, who covered the proceedings for the Times, filed this column on how the Pac-10 is beginning to take on a different look. He also notes that UW coach Steve Sarkisian said he expects Jake Locker to sign with the Angels. No surprise there as that has been the expectation all along, I actually talked with Locker today and I’ll have more on that later. But he said negotiations are ongoing and he hopes something is done before camp begins Aug. 10.
— Withers also has these notes from every Pac-10 team. Of note to UW fans, Withers writes that Sarkisian said there’s still a chance all of the other JC players could make it in, and that Chris Polk — who has been in and out of voluntary summer sessions — should be 100 percent for the beginning of camp. Again on the JCs, OL Daniel Mafoe is the only really question mark as the other four are expected to make it in. Donald Butler said on an interview on KJR-AM today that David Batts and Dominique Gaisie have been practicing with the team this week during the voluntary 7-on-7s (though he didn’t actually name Gaisie, though that’s who he meant).
— The Oregonian filed this report, including a picture of Sarkisian and Donald Butler.
,
— Sarkisian’s enthusiasm made a positive impression on Arizona beat writer Ryan Finley.
— One of the bigger stories to emerge from the day was Pete Carroll’s assertion that USC was working within the rules when former NFL coaches served as consulstants for the team. Here’s the original story from the LA Times that spurred Carroll’s defense today.
— This has nothing to do with media day, but Ted Miller, cribbing from the Orlando Sentinel, has this look at Pac-10 coaching salaries. Sarkisian is third at $1.85 million, a number that escaltes to $2.3 by the end of his contract in 2013.
All for now.
