It's not a lock, but for now Locker No. 1

HUSKIES FOOTBALL

There was some big news out of Montlake yesterday, with Tyrone Willingham naming Jake Locker the No. 1 quarterback.

Well, sort of. According to this Times' story, this one from the P-I, this News Tribune story and this one from Everett, Willingham said redshirt freshman Locker would be No. 1 when spring practice opens Monday even if senior Carl Bonnell was healthy, which he isn't.

Expect a lot of "Locker has great practice," or "Locker shows offense the way," or even "Locker sneezes" stories this month.

• This isn't exactly Huskies, but it is football related so I'm tacking it on here. Purdue coach Joe Tiller, a former WSU assistant, is closing practice – a practice Willingham follows but Bill Doba at WSU doesn't – because too much of what goes on at practice shows up on blogs.

Which means, if you are a fan of Purdue football – and I know most of you are big fans – then there will be a dearth of information this season.
