Saturday morning notes — A new UW President? And scrimmage today

Appears to be a nice day for Washington’s planned scrimmage today at 11 a.m. at Memorial Stadium.

It also appears UW may have a new president, as the Times reported late Friday that the school will soon name Michael Young, currently president at Utah, as the permanent successor to Mark Emmert.

We’ll find out more about Young as time progresses — and I know many who read this will want to know what kind of supporter he may prove to be of athletics and football. But obviously, he was president at Utah during the time that school made its move to the Pac-12, which would seem to speak pretty loudly.

As for the scrimmage, exactly how healthy UW is on the lines may determine how much of it is full 11-on-11. The obviously place to focus for most fans will be the QB battle of Keith Price and Nick Montana. UW coach Steve Sarkisian has said throughout spring that the battle remains wide open, both evenly splitting all reps, and making it clear to reporters earlier in the week that any intimation that there have been any change is inaccurate.

Former UW QB Brock Huard, however, said Friday that he thinks it’s unquestionable that Price is the leader. Huard attended Thursday’s practice, spending a lot of it alongside older brother Damon. Here are Huard’s comments made on his radio show Friday.

All for now.
