The next-to-last spring scrimmage will get started in less than two hours, so we better get out to Martin Stadium. What a difference a week makes, in the weather at least. The sun is out. It's expected to be in the mid-40s by the time the scrimmage ends. Heck, why wouldn't it be nice? It's Mom's Weekend. They always deserve the best. Read on.
• Washington State: It's a packed day at WSU. There is the scrimmage this morning, a baseball game this afternoon and somebody named Colbie Caillat performing at Beasley tonight. (Before all you country fans jump me, remember, the last time I went to a concert it was to see Jackson Browne. That will tell you how contemporary my music tastes are.) That doesn't include the rowing, soccer, etc., going on. But all we will have time to attend is the football, and we'll pass along what we see afterward right here.
• Around the Pac-12: Jon Wilner has more on the media rights negotiations (notice I didn't write “TV negotiations” because there is much more to it than that). … Washington: Nothing here. … Oregon State: The defense dominates the first scrimmage. … Oregon: Deep threat Josh Huff was helped off the field with what looked like a knee injury. … The defense won the day, and a perk. … Colorado: Nothing here either. … Utah: As one assistant decides to stay, another player might be leaving. … California: Baseball survives for at least another year thanks to big bucks. … Stanford: The Cardinal are about done with spring. … USC: Nothing here either. … UCLA: More news on next basketball season. … Arizona State: We've said it before, and it's sad, but one person's injury is another's opportunity. … Arizona: The Wildcats have one more week of spring football.
• That's all for this morning. We'll be back after the scrimmage. Until then …
