The period between signing day and spring football marks one of the slowest of year in college football. Coaches are resting up from the season and then the whirlwind of January recruiting, and players are in the midst of off-season conditioning. But there isn’t a lot of real “news” during this time.
I bring that up in part to explain that it’ll also be a little slower on the blog for a little while — not a lot of links to pass along on some days. But I do have planned to resume the pre-spring position overviews, and in general I’ll do what I can to keep this space updated as much as possible. But if there are days when there isn’t much on here, it’s simply a reflection of what is a down time of year in the sport.
That said, here are a few links to pass along today. …
— Count former UW QB Brock Huard as the latest to weigh in on “the fence” debate, saying that the Huskies need to do a better job signing the top in-state players. (And speaking of the Brock and Salk show, looks like Huard’s sidekick Mike Salk is headed back to Boston).
— Interesting potential rule change being recommended today as the NCAA is proposing that players who target defenseless players be ejected.
— Another new rule could outlaw Boise State’s all-blue uniforms at home — UW goes there in 2015.
— Rivals.com takes a look at some of the four-star players who just missed their top 250 rankings for the Class of 2014. Inclucded is tight end Chase Blakley of Couer d’Alene, Idaho who is a key UW target.
— Bruce Feldman’s “too early Top 10” features both Stanford and Oregon.
— Ted Miller wonders if Oregon is re-visiting its “no visits” policy.
— Links around the conference from the ESPN Pac-12 blog.
