Hang on Pac-12 football fans, spring practice is coming. But before you grab your sunglasses, binoculars, depth charts and portable grill, ask yourself if you really know what you're looking for in spring practices.
Remember, some of your team's incoming freshmen may not compete for any positions unless they have enrolled early. In other words, those newly-signed commits you were salivating over will probably not be on the practice field.
So what should you be looking for? Obviously, "improvement" pretty much covers every fan's wish list, but there are some specific units that should demand more attention from us than others.
We've gone ahead and listed all of the Pac-12 teams and what we feel are their key areas of concern. Maybe we'll see improvement in the spring camps (don't count on it), maybe we won't.
In the meantime, enjoy watching football (if your school allows public attendance) and start counting the months until we kick off the 2013 season.
