Tuesday links — The preview season continues

We are a week away from Pac-12 media day (and yes, I’ll soon tabulate the reader votes I received and pass along your consensus) meaning the season is drawing ever closer.

ESPN.com’s Ted Miller ponders the best questions to ask each coach and player that will be represented (and I’ll thank him later for helping me out here). I might add a few more — how quickly will some of the either/ors on the offensive line be settled? Any changes afoot due to the sudden depth issues in the backfield? Is the quarterback spot open at all? Is there much of a concern about the defensive tackle spot once you get past Alameda Ta’amu?

Feel free to add yours in the comments section.

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— Pre-Snap Read rates UW No. 46 in the nation and offers a preview of the Huskies. To address the top point of that preview, and as we’ve said on here before, the perception of what Steve Sarkisian has accomplished so far is based in part on that person’s perception of where the program was when he took it over — was it really of 0-12 caliber, or was it maybe more of a 3-4-win program that just had everything fall apart in every conceivable way in 2008? This year will begin to really tell the tale (as all third years for coaches tend to do).

— Miller also says Chris Polk is UW’s Most Indispensable Player.

— The Arizona Daily Star reports that Arizona WR Juron Criner will be ready to go when fall camp begins, which immediately re-elevates the Wildcats’ receiving corps to among the best in the conference.

— The NCAA will announce a decision later today on infractions in the LSU football program related to a case involving former Husky receiver-turned LSU assistant D.J. McCarthy.

— The Business of College Sports examines the profitability of football.

All for now.
