Tuesday afternoon update

Back in the press room from watching the beginning of practice — and to warm the hands as it is darn blustery out there today. Not wet (at least not yet) but pretty cold and windy.

Among those taking in today’s practice is quarterback Travis Wilson of San Clemente, Calif., who is here on an unofficial visit. He’s just the latest of at least two other QBs to take in practices here since spring began, the others being Cyler Miles of Denver and Bart Houston of Concord, Calif. (I detailed all the QBs in which UW appears to have interest in this entry yesterday.)

Wilson (here’s a little more on him) spent a few minutes chatting with incoming UW WR Kasen Williams, who was watching the workout from the sidelines as well.

The team is indeed in full pads, and a full crew of officials on hand, so some 11-on-11 action appears in the offing. I’ll have a report on that later.

For now, a couple of other links. ….

Jon Wilner has an update on the Pac-12 TV negotiations, indicating that all the schools may be about to get even more money than they thought when they approved expansion a year ago. He also reports that Comcast and Fox are the likely winners, and that there figures to be massive change in the basketball schedule (breaking up the Thursday-Saturday routine) and lots more football games on Thursday nights, and even some on Friday nights.

— SI.com’s Peter King, meanwhile, said today he fears Jake Locker could be the next Kyle Boller.

All for now.
