Chris Petersen will kick off the spring football season, so to speak, this afternoon during a 1:30 p.m. press conference at UW.
I’ll be there, of course. The first of 15 spring practices starts at 8 a.m. Tuesday, and I’ll be there too, of course. A reminder that spring practices are scheduled for a Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday run in the first two weeks, with a two-week spring break, and then two more weeks in April on the same Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday schedule.
Practices are open to the media but closed to the general public.
Before spring practices, I was asked to do a little spring cleaning at my parents’ this weekend. They found about a half-dozen old boxes of mine. I did a rough count of 20,000 baseball cards and a lot of why-did-we-keep-this elementary-school artwork. Also, I found newspapers … lots of newspapers. I shared this on Twitter last night, but thought it was worth passing along here again. From Jan. 2, 1992:
- O’Dea’s Myles Gaskin commits to UW.
- The Huskies have also offered a scholarship to LB Christian Folau, a linebacker from Salt Lake City who is committed to Stanford.
- Interesting study by the ESPN Pac-12 blog on each conference coach’s best team. For Petersen, that would be his 2009 Boise team that went 14-0.
- Athlon ranks college football rosters entering 2014.
- Catching up with former Husky Caesar Rayford.
- Another former Husky, Donald Butler, has agreed a new deal with the San Diego Chargers that could be worth as much as $48 million.
All in all, #Charger deal for LB Donald Butler is 7 years, one that can be worth a total of more than $48M with $28M guaranteed.
