Well, it’s sunny and clear where I am right now. We’ll see if that holds up for a few hours from now when UW gets back on the field at 4 p.m. at Husky Stadium.
As noted in the previous post, this will be practice eight of 15 this spring, officially putting UW past the halfway point of spring drills.
For now, a few links. …
— Jake Locker is reported to be working out for the Eagles today, somewhere in Seattle (if they want to hold it somewhere they won’t have to worry about a crowd gathering, they should go to Safeco Field).
— The official UW site examines the trend of early enrolling. Here’s a story I wrote on the same topic a few years ago containing names of other Huskies who have done it. As you’ll note at the bottom, the information was corrected after publication. There were no official records on players who enrolled early, and after the story was initially published, then a few people pointed out to me others who had also enrolled early.
— Chris Polk is included in Ted Miller’s look at returning 1,000-yard rushers in the Pac-12.
— Jon Wilner has more on how the Big-12’s new TV deal may impact the Pac-12 (and it sounds like it’s all good).
— This report shows that the Pac-12 appears to be leading the charge in softening its non-conference schedules (though conference defenders would argue that it’s merely catching up to those conferences that have been playing soft schedules forever).
— Scout.com has some thoughts on Nebraska’s young receiver corps.
— More Pac-12 links from Vince Grippi in Spokane.
All for now.
