Sunday links — Polk, Locker and UW takes a day off

The Huskies are taking the day off today, their first of fall camp, and the next time we’ll see them on the practice field will be Monday at 7 p.m. They are scheduled for another two-a-day tomorrow with the morning practice closed.

For our story for the Sunday paper I wrote about Chris Polk, who was ready to give it all up after the 2008 season but obviously has stayed to become one of the best Husky running backs of all time. Included are some charts.

In other Husky news. …

— The school’s official site reports that Quinton Richardson does not have a broken bone and has either a contusion or a high ankle sprain. We’ll probably have to wait until Monday to get word on how long he’ll be sidelined.

Steve Sarkisian’s high school coach has passed away.

— The National Football Post rates Alameda Ta’amu as the top NFL prospect among Pac-12 seniors. (By the way, no update yet on Ta’amu other than what was initially reported last night. Sarkisian said that because he’s a lineman, a broken bone in a hand wouldn’t be a big deal though he didn’t have exact details on the injury).

Huskies in the NFL. …

Jake Locker had a good debut for the Titans, and you can see the highlights as read about it here via ESPN.com.

— And here’s the report from The Tennessean.

— Here are more highlights and a link to his press conference.

— Here’s a column on Mason Foster from the Tampa Tribune following the Bucs’ opener against the Chiefs.

Around the Pac-12/college football. …

Bud Withers writes that the Pac-12 and Big Ten commissioners have denied they have agreed to a “plus-one” playoff plan.

— Withers also previews Arizona today.

— Lots of links around the Pac-12 from the Spokesman-Review.

— No shortage of stories out there on Texas A&M’s impending move to the SEC. It sounds as if so far this wouldn’t immediately impact the Pac-12, but you never really know anymore in college athletics. Good story in the New York Times, as well, noting what I’ve written on here often — there is no “they” in college football to look out over everything. It’s pretty much every man/school/conference for themselves.

All for now.
