Monday morning links and notes

The Huskies are off today, returning to practice (yes, we’re talking about practice) at 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

In fact, UW’s schedule the last two weeks is now easy to remember: Tuesday and Thursday at 4 p.m. and Saturday at 11 a.m. That’s for each of the next two weeks, six more practices to finish out the 15 UW will hold this spring. That includes the spring game April 30 at 11 a.m.

Not much out there today about UW, but here are a few other things worth passing along. …

— SI.com’s Peter King has some more of Jon Gruden’s thoughts on Jake Locker. He also says the Seahawks desperately want to trade down from their No. 25 pick.

— This stat from Phil Steele illustrates how UW didn’t get a lot of big scoring plays on offense last season.

— Sports Business Daily looks at ESPN’s negotiations with the Big East, another story that seems to foreshadow good things for the Pac-12,

— In keeping with the trend around the conference, UCLA’s defense dominated its scrimmage Sunday.

Jon Wilner examines Cal’s uncertain QB situation.

— The Stanford Daily reports that the school broke even on its Orange Bowl trip, the story also including some good detail on bowl finances.

— We’ve written a lot up here about UW’s staff being together now for three straight years. So has Oregon’s.

— Here’s one guy who says Arizona should basically forget about running the ball this season.

— Here’s a look at spring game attendance numbers so far.

— Rivals.com has more on the new 10-second run-off rule.

All for now.
