Honory Thy Seniors! - Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE
No, I don't want any potatoes. I hate potatoes. They are like soap operas - they just take up space. Nah, just give me some dots and sliced apples. I'll be happy.
- Condotta continues the tradition of recognizing the UW seniors as they wrap up their final week of football practice as a college athlete. As noted, this also marks the official close of the Tyrone Willingham era as his last recruits graduate.
- Also from Condotta, a Q&A with Brent Musberger. Musberger will be partnered with Kirk Herbstriet in calling the Las Vegas Bowl.
- ESPN's Mason Kelley previews the Las Vegas Bowl ($).
- The Idaho Statesman contemplates the best players on the UW roster. Interesting omission of Travis Feeney, but not terribly surprising.
- Phil Steele dispels (or disputes?) the notion that UW played the toughest schedule among P12 teams.
- Derek Johnson recaps a Q&A that he had with the Dawgfather, Don James.
- Those of you that follow my tweeting patterns know that, on occasion, I will tweet out financial news from Bloomberg. Interestingly enough, Bloomberg took a pretty deep look at story of the new Husky Stadium.
- Many of you know that JC DT prospect, Lavon Hooks, is taking into consideration a post-football point of view in his college decision-making process ($) which certainly bodes well for UW. You may not be aware that UW is also a finalist for another BIG JC defensive line prospect.
- The other UW hired a coach - Utah State's Gary Anderson, who turned down Cal, is moving to Madison.
- Yesterday was the anniversary of Brandon Roy's 52 point outburst against the Phoenix Suns - a watershed moment for him as a pro and for me as a Blazers fan / Husky alum. Also a reminder of how fleeting a professional athlete's career can be.
- Speaking of outbursts, Isaiah Thomas's 23 point fourth quarter the other night has people wondering if he is due for a second half breakout.
- The Liberty Bell is happy to celebrate "Spencer Hawes Day". Well, sort of.
- Things are not going too well for Tony Wroten as his decision to leave UW as an unfinished product continues to come back and bite him in the tail.
