Saturday night notes — Williams lists top 10, and more on expansion and USC

Sorry for the relative inactvity here, but it was the nicest day we’ve had in Seattle in weeks/months/years, and we had youth baseball tournaments and all that, so basically took the day off.
Others didn’t, however, so I’ll try to review some of what happened out there:
Mason Kelley of our staff talked to Skyline WR Kasen Williams to get an update on his recruiting, as well as listing his top 10 schools. UW is among those on the top 10.
— Here’s the Associated Press wrapup on the day in expansion, reporting that Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott is traveling to Oklahoma and Texas this weekend to talk to officials at various schools there. Texas AD DeLoss Dodds, however, says the school is still exploring all options — this doesn’t figure to get resolved for a few days.
— One of those would be to move to the SEC, as ESPN.com reports that the SEC “covets” both Texas and Oklahoma, but knows that it’s probably unrealistic now. Also included is info on Texas A&M, which would be a realistic addition to the SEC, which then means either Kanas or Utah to the Pac-10. (There are even some reports tonight that A&M has voted to join the SEC).
— Here’s the wrap from SI.com’s Andy Staples, noting that Scott talked to the Oklahoma schools today. His story also includes the odd news of the day, that the chairman of FedEx is said to have promised $10 million a year to whatever BCS conference invite Memphis (hey, trips to Graceland!).
— The Dallas Morning News examines what travel might be like for Big 12 teams moving to the Pac-Whatever.
— The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a good overview of how all this expansion stuff happened.
— Lots of good analysis out of Los Angeles on the USC news this week, including this piece from the LA Times assessing the legacy of Pete Carroll.
— The Times also says that this is the opening UCLA has been looking for to break the USC dynasty (though while also putting added pressure on coach Rick Neuheisel, who doesn’t have a lot of excuses now if he can’t get things turned around and get on a competitive level with the Trojans.)
— The Times also says that USC AD Mike Garrett “continues to embarass himself.”
— A couple more USC commits, including QB Max Wittek, say they remain committed to the Trojans.
Ted Miller’s mailbag examines how the scholarship reductions may impact USC — the penalty that in my mind will hurt the Trojans the most long-term.
All for now.
