The Bellingham Bells are returning to action this weekend, but Jake Locker is not expected to be with them again until Sunday.
Here is the team's schedule for June. Locker did not play last night when the Bells lost to Seattle Studs 5-0 (making the Bells 0-4 for the season) and he is not expected to make the trip for three games this weekend at Kelowna, B.C.
However, a Bells team official says Locker is expected to play on Sunday when the Bells return home and then is expected to play in every game next week --- the Bells have home games each day from Tuesday-Sunday.
The Huskies are not really doing anything during that time as school officially ends this week (graduation is Saturday). Football players are essentially free to do what they want until June 23rd, when the team will officially start its summer conditioning program.

How about occasionally mixing in a 10-15 yard football throw to a wide open "friend"...
Just in case it *might* be needed this Fall.

Is Jake receiving any money to play baseball?

Fife --- It's a college league, so nobody is.

Is Jake living in Bellingham in the offseason, or does he commute up here to the games? That's murder with the gas prices the way they are.
I'm surprised the team's 0-4. There's a lot of talent on the roster, but maybe they just aren't used to playing with each other yet. The first game I was at, they commited a bunch of errors before it was even the 5th inning.

The Bells are loaded with former local high school players with great talent at that level, but in the past, this league has been a summer league for lots of D1 players. I see lots of JC players on this roster so it may be a bit of a struggle unless the rest of the league is comprised of like players. Not to knock these kids by any means.....

@ Oregon: Win 35-23 (I remember worse UW teams beating better UO teams in Autzen.)
BYU: Win 28-21
Oklahoma: Win 38-31 (Oklahoma very good, but Jake shines and sparks a short heisman campaign)
Stanford: Win 40-17
@ Arizona: Loss 35-28
OSU: Loss 31-28 (They just have UW's number)
ND: Win 45-31
@ USC: Loss 42-17
ASU: Loss 45-41
UCLA: Win 31-14
@ WSU: Win 50-21 (WSU is going to be historically bad this year)
@ Cal: Loss 33-31
This schedule assumes a healthy Locker, which I grant is a huge assumption. 7-5.

ESPN has a very good article about Garcia. I found his comments about wanting to save TW's job and the young guys from having to go through what the seniors have gone through encouraging. I think something is brewing. My hat is off to him for all that he has acheived and wish him health and success. He deserves it.

This may draw sniggers and ridicule, and has probably been explained before on this blog more than once, but I'll ask anyway: Could Juan Garcia play as a sixth year seinior? I believe he ruled this out in an interview, but do the rules permit it? He could change his mind, expecially considering the draft. Best of all worlds is he beats the odds and recovers in time for the 08 season. Is there a Plan B if that doesn't happen? Troy Must Be Destroyed (ducks demolished)

Gabe -- Juan is actually already a sixth-year senior. To come back again he'd have to apply for a seventh year. He said flat out he won't do that. Next year is his last year no matter what.
On Jake --- You have to remember his family still lives in Ferndale. So he's not driving back every day or anything. I think he's in Seattle when he needs to be here and up there when he needs to be up there. Next week, I would imagine he's up there all week staying with his family.

And there may be other players from Seattle he's carpooling with.
