Thursday links — another QB ranking, and more on Larry Scott

I’ll start today with this story from CollegeFootballNews.com ranking the QBs in the Pac-10.
CFN, like a couple others have as well, rates Stanford’s Andrew Luck No. 1 and UW’s Jake Locker No. 2. The Luck-Locker debate figures to serve as an interesting subplot to this Pac-10 season with each considered a possibility to go among the top five or so picks in the 2011 NFL Draft (I’m trying to recall if two QBs who went that high in the following year’s draft have ever faced off at Husky Stadium, as will happen this fall).
When considering Luck, the big question I think many have this year is how he will respond to being the focus of the offense and not having Toby Gerhart around to relieve the pressure. As for Locker, the big question I think many have is whether he can lead a team to a winning record — the Huskies are 8-20 in games he has started.
CFN has also unveiled Pac-10 ratings for tailbacks (Chris Polk is No. 4); receivers (Jermaine Kearse is No. 3 and Devin Aguilar 10); tight ends (Chris Izbicki is No. 6 with no mention of Kavario Middleton); and kickers (Erik Folk is No. 3).
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott appeared in Portland yesterday and Eugene Register-Guard columnist George Schroeder has the details. Schroeder notes that the conference is attempting to beef up its media day offerings by taking all of the coaches back to New York this summer to meet with some East Coast media. Word is the conference also wanted to take some players but it was ultimately decided it either had to take one from each team or none at all, to make it fair, so that plan fell through. However, UW is expected to take Locker to the New York-area at some time this summer on its own to also have some confabs with Eastern media types.
— Here’s another take on that same meeting from The Oregonian, quoting Scott as saying that if there is expansion of the Pac-10, it will be two teams. The latest rumblings on expansion seem to be that the two teams the Pac-10 is most interested in are Texas and Texas A&M (a Utah-Colorado duo is not thought to bring enough financially to make it worth it) but that nothing is likely to happen until the Big 10 makes its move, potentially inviting Nebraska and Missouri, at which point dominoes will start to fall. If that happens and Nebraska bolts, then Texas might be amenable to moving to the Pac-10 (and A&M is thought likely to follow whatever Texas does).
All for now.
