Sunday morning links and notes

A few quick links and notes for a Sunday morning. …
— Here’s my story from the Sunday paper, which probably doesn’t have much new if you read the blog last night, but was intended mostly to be a roundup of what happened for the print and on-line editions. As noted in the story and blog yesterday, it was a pretty good day for the UW defense, including Cameron Elisara, pictured right in a game against Arizona State last season.
— A crowd of 77,936 took in the Nebraska spring game yesterday, which ended with a three-way battle for QB still brewing. Here’s all you should need to know about what transpired. Nebraska comes to UW Sept. 18.
— Syracuse, which comes to UW on Sept. 11, also held its spring game yesterday. This story says an aggressive offense stole the show with 537 yards and six touchdowns.
— Cal also held what amounted to its spring scrimmage yesterday, though stubbornly refusing to call it that for some reason. Jon Wilner says the QBs looked sharper.
— Stanford held a low-scoring spring game at Kezar Stadium, with no one apparently stepping forward in the race to replace Toby Gerhart.
— Arizona State is feeling good about its offensive progress as spring practice nears its final week.
Rick Neuheisel, meanwhile, said he’s frustrated with the execution of UCLA’s new pistol offense after a scrimmage on Friday.
Matt Barkley threw for five TDs at a USC scrimmage Saturday but Lane Kiffin was not thrilled about his team’s running game.
Nothing new from any of the other Pac-10 schools this morning that I could see.
NOBLE HANGING IN: I also had a chance to talk for a few minutes yesterday with Craig Noble, a UW lineman last season who was forced to give up football due to a heart condition. Noble, who watched practice from the sidelines, said he had an irregular heartbeat but that the exact cause of the condition remains uncertain. He said he recently had another procedure attempting to find the cause. He said there was a “slim” chance that he might someday be able to return to football, but the emphasis was on “slim.” He said he will remain at UW regardless to finish his degree —- he said he’s majoring in history.
