Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

Friday! Friday! Friday!

  • California starts spring practices Saturday, and it's time for quarterback Kevin Riley to make a statement. Here's a preview of the running backs -- with Jahvid Best sitting out and Shane Vereen limited, it's opportunity time for youngsters.

  • Adam Grant is finally healthy and ready to help rebuild Arizona's offensive line, but some other guys are hurting.

  • It looks like the NFL made a mistake snubbing former Oregon All-American defensive end Nick Reed at the combine. Lots of good Ducks pro day numbers at the link, too.

  • Oregon State gets ready for its pro day and spring practices... some injury updates too.

  • As expected, two UCLA starters received medical redshirts and will be eligible as fifth-year seniors in 2009.

  • USC's official spring football media guide. And you too could be a Trojan.
