Monday morning links — Locker, divisions and more

Remember the story a few weeks ago that said that the Angels had some issues with Jake Locker’s decision not to play baseball this summer?
There’s a little bit of a new twist to it this morning as the Orange County Register is reporting that Locker has told the Angels he cannot play baseball this summer due to a minor hand injury suffered during spring football. I’m not sure the extent of the injury, but Locker played in the spring game on May 1 and obviously seemed fine enough, and as the story notes, it’s characterized as minor. So I’m assuming this is nothing that will impact football and simply cautionary, anyway, as it seemed clear Locker preferred not to play baseball this summer.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
Ted Miller’s countdown of the top 25 players in the Pac-10 finally touches on UW, with Mason Foster at No. 11 (assuming there may be one more Husky on the list later).
— College Football Talk looks back at how excited Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops seemed to be when it looked like the Sooners would be in the Pac-10 (though not sure he really wanted y early meetings with brother Mike, coaching at Arizona).
— Speaking of Arizona, the Tucson Citizen breaks down which divisional alignments would be best for the Wildcats.
— The Salt Lake Tribune reports that some BYU fans aren’t happy to see Utah head to the Pac-10 while they remain in the MWC.
— The GoHuskies.blog wraps up the weekend for the three former UW players now in the CFL — Cody Pickett, Kai Ellis and Joe Lobendahn.
— The Orlando Sentinel looks at the pros and cons of conference championship games.
Finally, I’ll actually be out at the Detlef Scrempf golf tournament today, so there likely won’t be anything new on here until later tonight, at the earliest.
