The rest of the day

I’m away from my computer for the rest of the day, so this evening I’ll make a swing through the blogs and see if there is any interesting Cougar, Eagle, Vandal, Husky or Seahawk news to report –we all know there is nothing interesting coming from the Mariners right now.

Jim Meehan checked in with Dennis Erickson yesterday and has some news on the Vandal front. Meehan also has an interesting link to an AP story on the new graduate-transfer rule. You can either go to Meehan’s blog and follow the link or click here.

By far the most interesting Husky story I found this morning was Bob Condotta’s piece on Jake Locker and the probability he’ll redshirt this year. What fans usually fail to realize when focusing on program “saviors,” like Locker, is a coach has to balance what’s best for the program with what’s best for the kid. In this case, redshirting might be best for both.

Whitworth opens football practice today, the 100th year of football up north. You can get more info on the Pirates on the school’s football website. If you haven’t had a chance to watch Mt. Spokane grad Joel Clark run the Whits’ offense at the Pine Bowl, make sure you do it this year. The senior has matured into one of the best Division III quarterbacks in the nation and there is little better than a game in the fall in the Whits’ stadium.
