Monday a.m. notes and links

I’m still in Arizona helping with our Mariner coverage for another week, but as promised, I’ll try to keep the blog going as I can.

So here are a few Monday links around the Pac-12 and college football:

Jake Worthen Tweeted this morning that Austin Seferian-Jenkins is done with his classes at Gig Harbor and set to enroll at UW on March 24 and participate in spring practice, as has long been the plan. He will obviously contend immediately for the tight end spot.

— Oklahoma fans have launched an attack ad on Jake Locker in an effort to get DeMarco Murray the cover spot on the EA Sports NCAA 12 video game.

— Obviously, lots still percolating at Oregon. ESPN.com’s Ted Miller has a good roundup here, as does Dr. Saturday and The Oregonian.

— Rivals.com looks at Utah as the Utes begin spring drills for their first Pac-12 season.

Bryan Fischer of CBSSports.com has some interesting stuff on his Twitter feed about the NCAA attempting to limit the size of football staffs. Specifically, teams may be limited to five assistant strength coaches working with the football program, and to nine other staff members overall aside from the usual one head coach, nine full-time assistants and two graduate assistants. That is currently kind of an unregulated area and the NCAA has for a year or so wanted to put a cap on football personnel. UW has had three assistant strength coaches the last two years (including the departing Marques Tuiasosopo) but lots of schools nationally have had more.

— The Honolulu Star-Advertiser has some additional info on the Pac-12 officiating story we had here last week, detailing the conference origins of the 16 new Pac-12 officials as well as some salary info.

— Cal got a big 2012 commitment over the weekend from DB Shaq Thompson of Grant High in Sacramento, though it was long expected he would align with the Bears.

— NFL.com examines the challenges teams may face in trying to decide whether to take a QB (such as Locker) in the first round, or wait until later.

— SportsBusinessDaily has an interesting look at some of the controversy around the Capital One Cup.

— Miller also examines Stanford’s staff changes.

All for now.
