Let these links brush your rock & roll hair.
- Former Arizona coach Dick Tomey, now San Jose State's head coach, remembers his former rival at Arizona State, Bruce Snyder, who died Monday. It still makes me smile that such a bitter rivalry featured two of the truly nice guys in coaching. A heartfelt column on a writer's falling out with Snyder. Monte Poole does a good job of describing the human cost of writing opinion, which often means criticizing people whom you like and respect. More thoughts on Snyder's passing.
- There are some questions in Oregon's secondary.
- Oregon State might start the biggest cornerback in the Pac-10. And the Beavers might be reloading instead of rebuilding their defensive line. Checking in on Monday's lackluster practice.
- Jon Wilner with some nice info/insights from Stanford's spring game, including an observation that Richard Sherman appears ready to contribute as a cornerback and receiver next fall.
- Still no final word on UCLA tight end Logan Paulsen's new foot injury. Coach Rick Neuheisel comments on the Bruins halfway through spring.
- Some of the players who have stood out -- good and bad -- at USC's spring practices.
- Washington coach Steve Sarkisian drops the hammer at practice and some Huskies respond. Washington receivers need to refine their game. And catch the ball. Jim Moore, with a new, more serious mug shot, allows Washington fans to vent about his latest hatchet job on the Huskies.
