I’m back from a few days in Houston doing some NBA duty for our paper and will try to now get a few more updates on the blog, including some more questions and answers.
For now, a few links. …
— I helped Saturday Edge with a little spring preview of the Huskies.
— The NFL Combine begins later this week — here’s tons of info on that. The lone Husky participating is cornerback Desmond Trufant. As the schedule shows, his specific workout day is Feb. 26, or a week from tomorrow.
— One National Football Post writer calls Trufant one of five prospects to watch at the Combine.
— And here’s an updated look at the top corners in the draft based off performances in the Senior Bowl.
— Here are a list of dates for all spring practices and spring games. As you can see, Cal and Stanford each start next Monday (and remember that teams get only 15 practices no matter when they start so there’s no advantage to starting earlier or anything). Here is a preview of the Cardinal entering spring.
— The NCAA has ousted its vice president for enforcement in the wake of the much-criticized Miami investigation. This Oregonian story on that topic notes that Oregon is expected to go before the Committee on Infractions sometime this spring. ESPN’s Dana O’Neil wasn’t impressed by the performance of NCAA president Mark Emmert, former president of UW.
