First off, let’s have a live chat at noon today to talk about spring football and whatever else is on your mind.
Now, on to the daily links, including Senio Kelemete (pictured right at practice last wseek), Reggie Bush and more:
— For my story for today’s paper and web site, I wrote about Kelemete’s conversion to left tackle. UW coach Steve Sarkisian said it’s gone so well that he predicted yesterday that Kelemete will be an All-Pac-10 Player before his time at UW is over.
— Coach Sark’s Top Five listed Cort Dennison as Player of the Day and the Quinton Richardson pick-six of a Jake Locker pass as play of the day. That play had kind of a funny ending as Alameda Ta’amu came over to chest bump Richardson and Richardson lost balance, stumbling into the crowd.
— Bush, the former USC running back, was supposed to be desposed soon in a civil lawsuit. But Bush instead made an out-of-court settlement this week. ESPN.com’s Ted Miller has more details here. There’s no question the NCAA and Pac-10 were waiting to see if Bush would be deposed — Bush is under no legal obligation to talk to them so this was the only way they could get testimony from him. Now that Bush won’t be deposed, it’s likely the NCAA will make an announcement soon on its findings since there would appear to be nothing left to wait for.
— After all the talk that there could be some major expansion news coming out of the BCS meetings this week, the New York Times now reports that there’s nothing imminent. That actually goes along with what I’ve heard in Pac-10 circles that the Pac-10 is moving more slowly on this than many on the outside may think.
— A Fox Sports mock draft has Donald Butler going in the third round and Daniel Te’o-Nesheim to the Seahawks in the fourth round.
— Miller also had this note yesterday quoting Rick Neuheisel as wondering if Pete Carroll left for the NFL because he was tired of getting blistered by Oregon’s offense.
All for now.
