Spring Reports

Atlantic Coast

Boston College: There's another Flutie at Chestnut Hill. Billy Flutie — Doug is his uncle — made a splash during the spring finale.

Maryland: Chris Turner, the Terrapins' third-string quarterback, beat the top two signal callers in a lackluster game with conservative offense.

Pacific 10

Oregon: The Ducks, trying to replace all five offensive linemen, struggled to get any consistency on offense before 11,723.

Oregon State: Still no clear-cut favorite in the quarterback derby between Lyle Moevao and Sean Canfield.

Stanford: Good news: The defense, listless and underwhelming in two previous scrimmages, played well. Bad news: It came against the Cardinal offense.

Washington: The Huskies displayed some first-line talent, but not much is left in reserve as the team prepares for the nation's toughest schedule.

Western Athletic

Fresno State: A youth movement that started during a seven-game losing streak appears to be paying dividends in the secondary.

Hawaii: The Warriors displayed their multi-blitz approach under new defensive coordinator Greg McMackin.

Nevada: Quarterback Nick Graziano's play brought praise from coach Chris Ault, whose team opens at Nebraska.

that UW schedule is just so brutal. it's too bad too, because with RS frosh QB Jake Locker, some calling him the Savior, it'll be hard to get an accurate assessment of him with what will likely be another losing season.
