After a two day hiatus, the Morning Radar is back with some quick hits from around the blogosphere:
Don't know if my subscription ran out or what, but I haven't been getting my Sports Illustrated lately. So I'm sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office yesterday, and pick up the Sports Illustrated on the table, half expecting a issue from 1972. To my surprise, it was actually last week's issue. Naturally, I flip to the back cover to read what Rick Reilly has to say. It's a like a reflex to me. You hand me a Sports Illustrated, I flip it to the back cover to see if I've read the article before. So, I flip it to the back, and I was shocked to find out that I was reading Rick's last column for Sports Illustrated.
The good news is that (per his website) he's not done writing, just simply switching alliances from Sports Illustrated to ESPN. From his website:

Buker reports that Riley hasn't been contacted by UCLA on the prospect of taking the job vacated by Karl Dorrell, and he's happy that way. The quote was: "I have heard nothing, and I want to hear nothin". So that's good news.
Also from Buker's blog, we find out that Washington State had some talks with defensive coordinator Mark Banker about their vacated head coaching position. Things never got serious, apparently, and Paul Wulff got the job.
Just after annoucning that Ty Willingham will be sticking around in Seattle, Washington Atletic Director Todd Turner resigned. One begins to wonder, what happens to a website like FireTedTurner.com when it actually happens? If you want to find out, I suggest you follow the link.
