Saturday night links — spring ball now over in the Pac-10

Spring ball wrapped up today for the three remaining teams in the Pac-10 that were still practicing — Oregon, Oregon State and USC.
So that means no more football for anyone in the Pac-10 until August, when everyone will start preparing for the 2010 season. For those who have asked about what happens to the blog now, I’ve been surprised the last few years how easy it has been to keep it going in the summer. There always seems to be just enough news that pops up, and lots of previews, and rankings and things like that to bat around. I also have some things left over from spring to get on the blog in the next few days.
One thing I wanted to throw out was a request suggestions for entries that might make for good ways to pass the off-season. I do have some time off coming up, and some of it soon, so there will be some dark days here. But I have a feeling the season will be here before we know it.
Anyway, on to some links:
— Some interesting happenings at USC’s spring game as QB Matt Barkley bruised his hand when he was hit by DT Jurrell Casey after throwing a 41-yard TD pass — with Casey then kicked off the field as punishment. Casey, by the way, is a name to remember as he could be one of the better DLs in the conference this year. True frosh RB Dillon Baxter was the star of the scrimmage.
— Oregon’s spring game attracted 25,000 fans but didn’t answer the question of who the team’s starting QB will be in the fall — the competition between Nate Costa and Daron Thomas will last well into camp, it appears.
Jacquizz Rodgers sat out OSU’s spring game allowing the Beaver coaches to get a lot of looks at his understudies.
— ESPN’s Ted Miller has some interesting mailbag items, including his thought that the findings in the USC case could come any day.
— And I missed this last night but he had a good story on Jermaine Kearse, with Kearse telling Miller that “we expect to go to a bowl game.”
— The National Football Post has a story on Steve Sarkisian and Pete Carroll each now coaching in Seattle.
All for now.
