Found a few more Media Day-after stories to pass along your way:
--- Bruce Feldman's blog on ESPN.com includes lots of good tidbits from Pac-10 media day, including his observation that Jake Locker had a little bit of a bemused look when Tyrone Willingham said his preference would be that Locker never run at all. I think Willingham was just overstating it to make the point that in an ideal world, the Huskies could call on Locker a little less, something UW coaches have said often since the end of last season.
--- Ted Miller continues his rankings of Pac-10 players by looking at the linebackers and puts E.J. Savannah seventh, with the noted caveat that his status is a little uncertain heading into the season. Two Stanford guys on the list helps reinforce the notion that the Cardinal may have a pretty good defense this season.
--- Rivals.com has a good roundup from media day leading off with more on Locker and the quandary over how much he should run. Also another quote from Locker that he thinks his passing will improve with greater comfort of the offense.
--- ESPN's Tim Griffin asks the question --- What would it take to get Gary Pinkel to leave Missouri? As Griffin notes, Pinkel could be candidate 1A should the Huskies make a move on Willingham after this season.
--- Lisa Horne of Fox Sports breaks down the top 10 quotes from media day, a list that surprisingly includes Willingham.
PROGRAMMING NOTE -- By the way, I haven't forgotten the questions thread from last week. I answered some, then decided to let media day and other news drive the blog. But with little else UW-related on tap the next few days, I'll try to get to the rest of them.
All for now.
