Sifting through some of the day-after coverage of Pac-10 media day:
— With Utah joining the conference next year, The Salt Lake Tribune sent a reporter to the proceedings, and unearthed this interesting note that the UW coaches visited Utah earlier this year to study the team’s defense (before the news that Utah was joining the conference next season). The Trib also reported that Pac-10 coaches think Utah will find it more competitive in their conference.
— Salt Lake Tribune columnist Gordon Monson says BYU needs to settle on one quarterback and do it soon.
— Here’s a good compliation of news and notes from around the conference from ESPN.com’s Ted Miller.
— Here’s maybe the biggest surprise of Pac-10 Media Day — LA Times columnist T.J. Simers, who rarely likes anybody, decided he likes Lane Kiffin.
— Syracuse may have lost another running back for academic issues, leaving the team dangerously thin in the backfield, according to The Post-Standard.
— ESPN.com’s Ivan Maisel reports that Jake Locker might have preferred to play defense if he had it to do all over again.
— Among the many things the Pac-10 is considering is having an annual Kickoff Game at the Rose Bowl, according to the LA Times.
Jon Wilner has more details on what all the Pac-10’s new initiatives could mean from a financial standpoint.
— Miller also says UW is in great shape at kicker.
— Here’s the Pre-Snap Read preview on BYU, which it ranks No. 36 in the country (after earlier rating UW No. 54).
Vince Grippi of The Spokesman-Review also has lots of good links from Media Day.
All for now.
