Wednesday morning links

Really not that much out there today on UW or Pac-12 football — kind of that lull period after spring and before a lot of the preview stuff really starts to hit that can carry fans through the summer.

But there’s one little piece of news and a few general links. ….

— First, one date that appears to be set, via Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic, is that the Pac-12 football media day in Los Angeles will be held July 26, with the coaches then flying to New York for another media event there July 27-28. The media day in LA will also feature a player from each team and is traditionally when the annual media poll is revealed.

— Here’s a link to the interview UW OL coach Dan Cozzetto did on KJR-AM the other night.

— Sounds as if the SEC may be getting serious about tackling issues revolving around oversigning.

Andy Staples of SI.com has four Pac-12 teams in his post-spring Top 25 — Oregon at No. 2, Stanford (5), Arizona State (23) and Utah (25). He also has UW opponent Nebraska at No. 12.

Dan Bickley of the Arizona Republic says this year marks a seismic shift in college football.

— I know a lot of you reading this don’t care much about Oregon news, but this is pretty interesting on the Ducks’ philosophy of having 16 captains.

— I also found this an interesting take on Oregon having just one draft pick in 2011 (and one other possible reason? The Ducks are merely young, at least in terms of their elite talent. LaMichael James, Cliff Harris and David Paulson could all be high picks next season).

— This has nothing to do with football, but I spent part of my day Tuesday putting together this obit on a former Husky tennis player who led a rather extraordinary life.

All for now.
