A few more media day notes

Posted by Bob Condotta

As the title says. ...

--- The Riverside Press-Enterprise used the occasion of Pac-10 media day to name the conference's top five playmakers and led off with Jake Locker. If only he hadn't spent every single minute of the summer playing baseball!

--- This report on the festivities from the LA Times includes a quote from Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen that the conference is "still involved'' in investigating the Reggie Bush case, and that the NCAA is "still involved'' as well.

--- ESPN's Ted Miller notes that Locker really got into it singing "That's Amore'' when the players were taken to a local Italian restaurant on Wednesday night, a dinner that is something of a conference tradition (I'm already regretting I couldn't eat those little warm bread things this year). This is now the second confirmed report of Locker singing in public this summer after he also helped lead the crowd in singing "Happy Birthday'' to his grandmother at a Bellingham Bells game. Hopefully all that singing didn't detract from his football responsibilities this summer, either.

--- Brian Dohn of the LA Daily News notes that among UCLA's walk-ons is quarterback Tyler Tuiasosopo of Mariner High, brother of current Husky Trenton and a cousin of Marques and Zach Tuiasosopo.

--- Mike Tokito of the Oregonian has a nice wrapup of the day's events leading off with more Locker-baseball talk (oh no!).

All for now.
