Tuesday links — More Locker, and actually some other stuff, as well

Jake Locker is on day two of his eastern media blitz, but this one may not be as high-profile as instead of visiting ESPN properties all day he is instead in New York City visiting with some national writers and reporters there.
Still, he dominates the links today:
—- Times columnist Jerry Brewer takes a look at Locker’s day at ESPN.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller has his own take on Locker’s day at the corporate headquarters. As Miller and others note, Locker won’t be in the Heisman mix regardless of any of this if UW doesn’t win at least 8-9 games. But at least now name recognition won’t be an issue.
— Here’s a view on Locker’s day from a blogger for UW’s first opponent next season.
— Here’s a little roundup from College Football Talk.
— In non-Locker news, Fanhouse.com has an interesting series examining what schools spend on football. UW was third in the Pac-10 in the 2008-09 academic year (the last for Tyrone Willingham, so it’s important to make that distinction and realize that spending has surely gone up a little bit since then) at $18.53 million. Most surprising may be that Cal was second at $19.12 million behind USC’s $21.37 million.
— Speaking of Brewer, he has a new blog that I heartily recommend you check out called “The Brewery.” In one of his entries yesterday he emptied the notebook from his interview with UW AD Scott Woodward.
Jon Wilner has an overview of what expansion could mean to the Pac-10. Most interesting, maybe, is the assessment of a TV consultant who said adding Utah and Colorado really won’t add any value to the conference’s TV contract other than simply being two more teams to pump the membership up to 12 and have a conference title game. But as Wilner states, there was also a thought that the Pac-10 might have been able to play one with just the old 10-team alignment.
— Wilner also wonders if Stanford and Cal will present a united front when the conference meets on July 30 to decide how to divide.
— Rivals/Yahoo writer Tom Dienhart Tweeted this morning that Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said he believes the new Big 12 won’t last long.
All for now.
