I was out of pocket Thursday and Friday on family business, so I missed a couple of things.
Unfortunately, most of the news was injury related.
Arizona free safety Adam Hall, a budding star, tore the ACL in his right knee and could be out for as long as seven months.
Two projected Arizona State starters -- All-Pac-10 cornerback Omar Bolden and receiver T.J. Simpson -- suffered knee injuries. The severity of both injuries has not yet been reported, though there are serious concerns for Simpson.
UCLA's projected starting offensive tackle, Jeff Baca, broke his ankle and it's unclear whether he will be ready for fall practice. The Bruins -- and coach Rick Neuheisel -- have struggled with injury woes the past three seasons. Seems like they're due a break. (Maybe that's not the right word choice here.)
Oregon State RB Jordan Jenkins is out for the rest of spring because of a shoulder injury.
USC DE Armond Armstead takes a step toward getting back on the field (though probably not this spring).
