Thursday afternoon news, notes and links

A little time to catch up on a few things:
— I know there continue to be questions about the academic status of Chris Young. Sandy Ringer, who covers South King County high school sports for our paper, had a chance to correspond with Auburn High football coach Gordon Elliott this week, and Elliott told Ringer that there is still a chance Young will be eligible this fall. Elliott said that “with successful second semester class work and with a qualifying score on his SAT retake he would be academically eligible.” So for those who have asked about a time frame, pretty clear that nothing will be known until mid-June or so at the earliest when Young has completed his last semester of work at Auburn High.
— UW coach Steve Sarkisian will hold a press conference Monday at noon to kick off spring football. Fans can watch it live on UWTV, Channel 27 on Comcast in the Seattle area. A replay will also be shown Monday night at 9:30.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— UW announced earlier this week that season ticket renewals remain ahead of last year’s pace.
— More rumblings out of Provo that Jake Heaps will be the guy the Huskies face in the season opener Sept. 4.
— Here’s an update on spring ball at Syracuse, UW’s second opponent of 2011, which also has a quarterback battle on its hands.
— ESPN looks at some of the depth chart issues at Nebraska, which also opens spring ball next week. Nebraska plays at UW Sept. 18.
Nick Daschel rates Pac-10 defensive tackle units heading into spring ball and places UW in the “healthy” category. But as he notes, much depends on the health of Cameron Elisara.
— An interesting look from the Bleacher Report at the current challenges facing each Pac-10 athletic director.
— Lots of other Pac-10 links from Ted Miller.
— More Pac-10 links from Ken Goe, who also notes that Mike Bellotti’s handshake deal as AD at Oregon is coming under some scrutiny.
All for now.
