Football: Quick media day notes

A couple of notes from Jeff Tedford’s time at the podium this morning at Pac-10 media day in Los Angeles:

–Tedford said he is considering having the team travel an extra day earlier for the Minnesota game on Sept. 19. Tedford said he still doesn’t believe the time change was a factor during last year’s loss at Maryland, but also wants to be open-minded about it. He said leaving an extra day early will give him the opportunity to compare any differences with the experience.

–No surprise, but Tedford said Kevin Riley will begin training camp taking the first snaps at quarterback. This is only significant because it’s not something Tedford had to say. It was offered. But he did talk later about his desire to have any of the quarterbacks play well enough to win the job and keep it the entire season.
