It's been a few hours. Had my 20-year reunion Saturday night and Sunday, so … you can imagine the ramifications of that. Really stuck on what time to leave Tacoma for the 9 a.m. practices of two-a-days, so to beat the morning traffic, got at Hec Edmundson Pavilion at 6:45 a.m.
Anyway, leftover stuff from other Pacific-10 Conference camps. A reminder, many (including the Huskies) took Sunday off:
ARIZONA: Coaches were asked to evaluate the new set of quarterbacks after the Wildcats' first scrimmage. The response: "They stunk."
ARIZONA STATE: Pflugrad, a transfer receiver from Oregon and ex-Pullman star, is playing the waiting game as he adjusts to a new team.
Never miss a local story.
CALIFORNIA: Son of former Bears' standout and coach Joe Kapp (his name is Will) means the fullback position is in good hands.
OREGON: Costa thinks all the ailments, including last season's knee injury, are a thing of the past. He's ready to roll into 2009.
UCLA: Now weighing 247 pounds, the transformation from tailback to fullback is nearly complete for Moline and the Bruins' backfield.
USC: Coach Pete Carroll had a lot to say – and most of it not favorable – to the stable of running backs after the team's first scrimmage. The short version: Run harder.
WASHINGTON STATE: A quarterback glut just got one body lighter as Pullman product J.T. Levenseller has decided to transfer. On one hand, I've thought he was clearly a backup signal caller, at best. But considering the injuries the Cougars took at quarterback last season, it's still a big insurance loss.
Nothing real current on Oregon State or Stanford. Will update after morning practice.
