Tuesday morning links

A light morning for links, but wanted to post a few before heading out to the morning practice.
Bob Condotta wrote this feature on the offensive line. It’s an interesting look at the different blocking schemes between the current coaching staff and the former one. The Huskies are using implementing a zone-blocking scheme the requires lighter, faster linemen. It’s a break from the past when, UW had several plus 300-pounders on the line. This year, they have just one guy over 300.
Here’s the report from Monday’s practice, leading off with news that Don James is expected to attend tonight’s practice and the commitment from offensive tackle Erik Kohler of Oaks Christian High in Westlake Village, Calif.
ESPN’s Ted Miller confirmed what everyone suspected all along that California junior Kevin Riley will win the quarterback job. Here’s his story. Riley beat out sophomore Brock Mansion and frosh Beau Sweeney.
Miller also predicts UW quarterback Jake Locker will be the Pac-10 Comeback Player of the year in this story.
Indystar.com reporter Mike Carmin has this interesting look at the Pac-10’s policy on hotel stay.
And finally, here’s a few links out of Baton Rouge.
First this one on a star freshman defensive back Craig Loston, rated the No. 1 safety in the country. He couldn’t practice until Monday because the NCAA Clearinghouse needed extra time to clear up his eligibility. Sounds like what’s happening to the UW’s three frehsmen (Keith Price, Talia Crichton and Tim Tucker) who were held out of Monday’s drills.
Here’s another on LSU’s training camp to an end.
That’s it for now. Heading out to practice.
