Thursday links — Locker’s summer plans, Pac-10 meetings, and more

First off, here’s my updated story on the passing of former UW AD Joe Kearney, including some quotes from Don James and Marv Harshman.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Lots of good stuff from ESPN.com’s Ted Miller, who is covering the Pac-10 meetings in Phoenix. He has items on his blog about a potential Pac-10-Big 12 partnership, as well as news that the conference may expand travel rosters from 64 to 70, and that it will have a two-day media day that will include a stopover in New York (where I think UW’s Jake Locker will be one of the athletes making that trip). He also notes that the conference is considering no longer using its own officials for its home non-conference games (going with the more common tactic of having officials of the other conference officiate on the road). Miller also lists the official bowl lineup, announced at the meetings (with no changes from what was earlier reported).
— According to this blog item from an Arkansas newspaper, Locker will be among the QBs working as counselors July 8-11 at the Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana. It would be no surprise as Locker has worked at that camp before and said earlier this year he planned to attend a camp or two this summer. He also will likely work at Steve Clarkson’s camp sometime this summer, as well.
— As some of you already noted, USC has learned that starting DT Christian Tupou is likely to miss the season due to a knee injury suffered in the team’s final scrimmage last weekend. He was a key reason the Trojans were thought by many to have maybe the best defensive line in the conference heading into the 2010 season.
— A writer for Examiner.com uh, examines Jake Locker’s game as part of a Heisman Hopefuls series.
— A couple of Pac-10 players, but no Huskies, made The Sporting News’ All-Spring Team.
All for now.
