Sark said on his radio show last night that they might get one more year from TB Chris Polk. He said they would both sit down at the end of the season in the same manner he did with Jake Locker to help make a decision. Polk is a likely second or third round draft choice if he comes out this season.
The loser of the Oklahoma State/Oklahoma game on Saturday is starting to look like the likely opponent for the Huskies if they end up going to the Alamo Bowl. If the Huskies end up in the Holiday they would play the winner of the Texas/Baylor game.
UCLA is petitioning the NCAA to participate in a bowl game with a losing record and an interim head coach. The Bruins who are 6-6 would go to the Rose Bowl if they upset Oregon on Friday. If they lose they would fall to 6-7 which would make them ineligible without the waiver.
Tailback Chris Polk (1341 yards) was one of nine Washington football players honored yesterday by the Pac-12 Conference which announced it's all-conference football teams. Polk was named to the first team, one of two running backs to earn a spot.
Six other Huskies including record setting sophomore QB Keith Price attained honorable mention status.
Washington has had two big recruiting weekends during their past two home games and not a single player has (publicly) committed. The Huskies traditionally have the bulk of their class wrapped up by New Years but this season things could end up taking a little longer because they are in on some of the top kids in the country.
WSU AD Bill Moos will hold a press conference at 2:00 PM PST to announce his decision regarding the future of head coach Paul Wulff and the Cougar football program. The inside scoop is Moos has been leaning towards keeping Wulff but the President of the school would like to make a high profile change to get donations going.
UCLA has zeroed in on Boise State head coach Chris Petersen. How much money will it take to get Petersen to LA? It would definitely be more than the $2 million he makes at Boise...insiders estimate that it will take Kiffin/Carroll money (4-M) for him to make the move.
ASU has their eyes on Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin. That doesn't mean that they will get him. Sumlin is probably the hottest commodity out there behind Chris Petersen. This is the type of job that Mike Bellotti might have interest in.
Urban Meyer was named the head coach at Ohio State yesterday. Sounds like the perfect hire for the Buckeyes.
Penn State has begun the first search for a new head coach by putting together a six person search committee.
No truth to the rumor that Arizona Rich Rodriguez has already begun spring football practice in Tucson.
