As the title says. ...
--- First is my story today on how the Huskies are also using the spring to adjust to some rules changes recently enacted by the NCAA. When I asked Tyrone Willingham about it yesterday, he didn't seem to think the timing rules will change much. But Jake Locker did seem to think it made a little difference in speeding up the game, which is the whole point --- the NCAA is continuing to search for the perfect way to keep the game going while not eliminating plays, which was the problem with the timing rules changes it made two years ago.
--- UCLA's receivers say they like a change in the offense of new coordinator Norm Chow, allowing them to read the defense and then choose their route, rather than having to run a pre-determined route.
--- USC coach Pete Carroll says Mark Sanchez is the starting QB. But Mitch Mustain, a transfer from Arkansas, says he still thinks he can win the job.
--- Much to the relief of UW fans, Alexis Serna has finally graduated. OSU has found a kicker to replace him but is still looking for a punter. And Lyle Moevao is taking all the starter's snaps at QB in Corvallis this spring with Sean Canfield sidelined with an injury.
--- Like the Huskies, Oregon is expected to scrimmage again today. The link also includes the note that basketball player Frantz Dorsainvil has given up his two-sport experiment and quit the football team.
--- This is a few days old, but Stanford ended spring drills with no resolution to its three-man race at QB.
--- Cal also continues to have uncertainty at the QB spot that will last until the fall.
--- Notre Dame ends spring drills this week and coach Charlie Weis says he is excited about the progress of QB Jimmy Clausen among other things. Sounds like the O-line is still an issue, however.
We'll be back later today with reports from UW.
