Saturday a.m. links — BYU starts practice, and Seferian-Jenkins visiting Austin

While UW is waiting until Monday to get going, its first opponent — BYU — is taking the practice field for the first time today still in search of a starting QB. The Salt Lake Tribune examines that and some other key questions facing the Cougars.
(And don’t worry that BYU has started two days earlier — all teams are limited to 29 pre-season practices, BYU is just spreading its out over a couple more days).
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— The Denver Post reports that the Pac-10 may bend and start giving Colorado TV money in 2011 even though it won’t give any to Utah until 2012.
— Texas has now reportedly made an official offer to Gig Harbor tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (and it strikes me that UW fans might feel more comfortable if his first name was Montlake instead). He’s still expected to make a decision Aug. 16.
—- Speaking of recruiting, Jon Gold of the LA Daily News had a lengthy interview the other day with QB Brett Hundley of Chandler, Ariz. In fact, it was so big he split it into two parts — here’s the second. The upshot is he says UW and UCLA are still “about tied.”
— Former Husky Brandon Leyritz’ Spokane Shock team beat former Husky Johnie Kirton’s Arizona squad in an Arena Football League playoff game last night.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller ponders if Jeff Tedford’s job is secure, and a few other Pac-10-related questions (though none specific to UW).
— Here’s more on the beginning of BYU’s camp.
Vince Grippi with lots of links around the conference.
— Most interesting may be the news out of USC that Lane Kiffin may have to answer more questions from the NCAA about his Tennessee “era.”
— The Associated Press offers this preview of the Pac-10.
— Here’s an Oregon-related poll UW fans may enjoy.
