Meandering our way through the offseason minutia, a lone one-liner at a time…

Associated Press: “Condolences streamed in from as far as Texas and Massachusetts as fans and friends gathered Thursday to pay tribute to former West Virginia University football Coach Bill Stewart.”

— Ohio State linebacker/freak John Simon (pictured) says Urban Meyercalling me ‘Tebowish,’ that means a lot.”

— After setting a personal best in the long jump (25′ 5.5″), Marquise Lee, whose day job is stud wide receiver at USC, moved on to the NCAA Championships next month in Iowa.

Kevin Scarbinsky of the Birmingham News takes a sledgehammer to Larry Scott‘s “plus-one is gaining traction” notion, and gets a shot in at the Rose Bowl as well.

— Florida’s Will Muschamp makes the 10th and final stop on his spring booster tour, reiterates his past stance on the quarterback position: a starter won’t be named until sometime during summer camp.

— The esteemed and/or imitable Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times does his post-spring thing in a Q&A centered on the Washington Huskies.

— New Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien reviews the Nittany Lions’ spring and previews the 2012 schedule in an interview with the school’s official website. Michigan football commit Mike McCray, son of former Ohio State captain, receives offer from Buckeyes. Auburn targeting some big-name prospects during Big Cat recruiting weekend.

— The Deseret News reports that BYU has landed a verbal commitment from former Washington signee and current “massive” JUCO defensive lineman Ma’ataua Brown, and by “massive” they mean 6-5, 360 pounds.

— Stanford head coach David Shaw has been named Male Coach of the Year by the Black Coaches & Administrators.

— Former Arizona State quarterback Andrew Walter spent some time this past week with the three players vying for his old job.

    Yep. It means that like Tebow, Simon will never be a succesful NFL quarterback.

    It just kills me how black ppl get to have all these things with just black awards. Like naming the Stanford Coach black coach of the year. If white ppl had that where there was a white coach of the year it would be all out war that white ppl hated black or unfair. So sick of seeing this crap
