Monday afternoon links and notes

Some links and notes for a Monday afternoon. …

— The NCAA will officially announce updated Academic Progress Rate numbers Tuesday morning. These are the numbers for which schools can be penalized with the loss of scholarships if they don’t meet certain thresholds (detailed here). It’s not expected that UW football is in any danger as it has been safely above the numbers every year, with a multi-year APR last year of 948 and a single-year APR of 934. Raising the single-year number just a bit, however, could make UW coach Steve Sarkisian a little richer. His contract calls for a bonus of $50,000 if the APR is greater than 950, $75,000 if it’s greater than 960, and $125,000 if it is greater than 970.

— Speaking of academics, there has been speculation that receiver Marvin Hall of Dorsey High in Los Angeles is the one Class of 2011 signee who may be in some danger of qualifying. Dorsey head coach Paul Knox said today that “he had some work to do. But as of now we are expecting everything to be all right.” But with Hall having recently retaken his standardized tests, and some school work still to do, his situation is not yet completely settled.

— The Dawgman.com guys will be on KJR-AM tonight from 7-10 p.m. and among the guests scheduled are Kasen Williams and Dan Cozzetto.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins made this ST.com list of impact early enrollees.

— Some interesting numbers here from Scout.com breaking down the origins of signees for the Class of 2011 and showing that the state of Washington is among the leading risers in producing Division-I talent.

— Interesting news breaking today out of the Big East as that conference has decided to put its TV negotiations on hold after seeing what the Pac-12 got.

All for now.
