As Pete Carroll would say, "Link forever!"
- Injuries pile up: Arizona State may have lost a linebacker for the rest of spring.
- California needs to improve its passing game this season, and this guy looks ready to help.
- Oregon's offensive line continues to be a concern. Jon Gruden considered becoming a Duck. Look: New coach Chip Kelly has a blog.
- It sounds like you do not want to mess with Oregon State's new middle linebacker, David Pa'aluhi. And Darrell Catching's last name might be more meaningful this fall as he tries to erase a bad 2008. Change is good, at least for these two switching sides of the ball.
- Kevin Prince, the front-runner to be UCLA's quarterback next fall, returned to practice after sitting out with a sore shoulder.
- He may not be USC's starting quarterback next fall, but true freshman Matt Barkley has impressed this spring. Linebacker Luthur Brown is a really good player who can't stay healthy.
- An updated Washington depth chart.
- A walk-on makes an impact at Washington State in more positive ways than one.
- Five things to watch in the Pac-10 in 2009.
